A Philadelphia folk musician died in a tragic accident over the weekend while hiking the Appalachian Trail in Maryland. 36-year-old Jason Parish was killed on Sunday morning when high winds brought down a dead tree on top of him. Parish, an avid camper and outdoorsman, was hiking a steep and rocky part of the trail about 7 miles from Harpers Ferry, WV, with two other people. He was known to frequently take rugged camping excursions, even during the winter. Parish released his debut album A Mountain and a Hill in January recorded at Little Spiders Have Big Dreams Studio. He worked with many members of the Philadelphia folk music scene on the record including JC Bell (mandolin), Lisa Gall (vocals), Ryann Lynch (fiddle), Reverend TJ McGlinchey (bass), Sarah Napolitan (vocals), David Pinkston (pedal steel), Michael Ronstadt (cello), Ernie Tokay (mandolin), Stacy Weathers (banjo), Hoagy Wing (percussion), and Ian Zolitor.

An ice cream vendor was stabbed in a dining hall bathroom at LaSalle University on Monday afternoon by an unknown assailant. It happened just before 2 p.m. at the Blue and Gold Dining Hall in the 1900 block of West Olney Avenue. The Jack and Jill Ice Cream vendor was making a delivery and entered the restroom to wash his hands. He was stabbed in the left upper chest/shoulder by the suspect who then fled the scene. The suspect is described as a white male in his 20's wearing a red hat and blue jacket. The victim was taken to Einstein Medical Center and is in stable condition. His injuries are not life threatening. Texts went out to campus alerting everyone of the incident and placing the campus on lockdown for a short time while the investigation was ongoing.

LaSalle University issued a statement:
"A text safety alert was issued immediately to all students, faculty, and staff informing them of the incident, followed by a second text safety alert instructing all to shelter in place. The shelter in place was lifted after about 45 minutes once Police and University Security deemed the area to be safe. The University continues to work in close cooperation with Philadelphia Police. The investigation continues."

Two Philadelphia firefighters were injured after an aluminum ladder came into contact with a power line on Monday morning. It happened around 10 a.m. on the 2400 block of West Norris Street in North Philadelphia. Fire crews were breaking down after fighting a small fire. When the firefighters were removing a 35-foot ladder it came into contact with a high voltage line and shocked the men. They were rushed to Temple University Hospital and are in stable condition. Spokesman Captain William Dixon says that firefighters are always taught to look up and be aware of lines and other obstructions. An investigation is underway.


27-year-old QB Tim Tebow worked out with the Philadelphia Eagles today. The Heisman Trophy winner from Florida hasn't played an NFL game since 2012.

Phillies P Cliff Lee was placed on the 60-day disabled list.
