    Shell corporations, millions in fines, and a sting operation in New York City. It's not a noir film; it's a crackdown on ice cream trucks. The city began seizing 46 ice cream trucks Wednesday in "Operation Meltdown" after operators violated traffic laws and then evaded fines for nearly a decade, Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a news release. As the operators were handing out popsicles from 2009 to 2017 they also were racking up 22,000 summonses and nearly $4.5 million in fines for traffic violations, the city said. The operators had been cited for running red lights, parking near...

    LONDON — There are few more unmistakable signs that summer has arrived in Britain than hearing the chimes of an ice cream truck from the street. But Londoners could soon find it harder to track down soft-serve on a hot day, because of fears that pollutants from the trucks’ diesel engines may be endangering lives. Councils in the city are threatening to clamp down on ice cream trucks that roam their streets if they do not become more environmentally friendly. “No one wants a side order of asthma with their ice cream,” Caroline Russell, a Green Party member of the...

    After complaints from various activist groups, the song "Vanilla Ice Cream" has been banned from Broadway. She song, which is featured in the Tony Award winning musical, "She Loves Me" has been deemed racist by the ruling committee.

The song is nothing but pure hate speech." Another Broadway executive added, "We are no longer a nation of vanilla. We are also chocolate, strawberry, and so many other flavors. Vanilla ice...

Proceeds from the new flavor will go to four groups, including Women’s March, whose leaders are rabidly anti-Israel. Linda Sarsour, who was pictured...

Graham, the son of the late evangelist Billy Graham, said abortion activists are “absolutely frantic” about President Donald Trump appointing a second conservative justice to the U.S. Supreme Court. “They’re holding rallies and pulling out all the stops in a campaign to try to stop Judge [Brett] Kavanaugh from being confirmed to the Supreme Court,” he wrote on Facebook. “NARAL Oregon is even partnering with a Portland ice-cream parlor for a pro-abortion themed ice cream flavor—’Rocky...

    Updated 10 minutes ago A flock of uninvited chickens surrounded Jeff McLaughlin and his three grandsons as they enjoyed lunch at a picnic table at Hempfield's Tastyland. The boys didn't mind. The freeloading fowl were a highlight of their trip. “We love the chickens,” said 6-year-old Liam Bitz. His cousin, Owen Shuey, 7, agreed. “I'm going to go pet one after I finish this fry,” he said. Owen tried to keep his word but the chicken had other plans, leading Owen on an unsuccessful chase around the table, much to the amusement of Owen's twin brother, Ethan. The chickens have...
