wo weeks after he would have begun his 16th term in Harrisburg, Robert Donatucci received posthumous plaudits Jan. 19 from a saddened, yet appreciative crowd at the Girard Academic Music Program, 2136 Ritner St. The evening accolades for the deceased state representative occurred in the school’s auditorium, one of numerous projects he made possible in his 30 years of assisting multiple South Philadelphia communities. Doubling as a meeting for the Girard Estate Area Residents civic group, the 45-minute gathering balanced somber moments with warm tributes and featured See DONATUCCI page 9

Audenried’s auditorium served as the location for the 90-minute explanation of Universal’s desire to engender pride in the communities, which the Philadelphia City Planning Commission in September 2009 recertified as blighted and needing revitalization. “These areas have many challenges,” Islam said. With Census Bureau and School District of Philadelphia statistics guiding him, Islam revealed that 15 to 17 percent unemployment levels dog the two sections, whose combined See NEIGHBORHOODS page 12

A nation in decay To the Editor: Take a look of the shame and disgrace of the world’s richest country. Our leaders have set the worst kind of example for others to see and scoff at. Six-hundred-thousand of our bridges are structurally unsound, some which have collapsed, killing a number of innocents. Our drinking water has become contaminated and undrinkable in too many areas. Our roads and highways are crumbling. Dams are failing and have and will continue to cause rampant flooding and unbelievable amounts of money down the drain. According to newscasts, it is going to take $3 billion and five years to fix all of this. America and all of its infrastructure is going completely to hell because they claim there is no money. Doesn’t it seem strange there is no funds to fix these things, but we are able to give trillions of dollars to the rich who did not need or deserve it. The stench of it all is overwhelming. Brother — if ever it was time to completely clean out almost all of the political henchmen in Washington, D.C., that are murdering America — the time sure is way past due. Get them out of office before they can do any more harm to our country because it is obvious they don’t care a damn about what they are doing to it. It seems none of them can think and act as individuals, but can only function as a group with no individuality, thought, input or dissent because it’s what their party wants and damn your disagreements or disruptive input. That follow-the-leader mentality is a deprivation of some worthwhile and constructive ideas that remain muted and choked on. We will not see these critical repairs to our country because of the catering to lobbying and the true bosses of America. I remain appalled, disgusted and torn up by this neglect and decay of my beautiful country! Frank Cavallero South Philadelphia

Where have all of my neighbors gone? To the Editor: Here in South Philly, life goes on, but where have all of my neighbors gone? Some to Washington Township I hear and other parts of Jersey far and near.

Some to Marlton, some to Audubon, Pine Hill, Voorhees and Avalon. And we remember so fond those gone to the great beyond. We scrubbed our steps every day and sat watching our kids at play. Those were the days that would not end, now they are all gone with the wind. Margie Domard South Philadelphia

Extraordinary attention To the Editor: Thank you “South Philly Review” for informing your readers of the appearance of Our Lady of Guadalupe (“Ladylike mission,” Jan. 13). Joseph Myers and Bill Gelman were going about their ordinary routine of interviewing and editing stories. On an ordinary day, someone extraordinary was humbly asking permission to be present among us and found ears open to her plea. As the handmaid of the lord, Mary never imposes. Rather she indicates her desires and awaits a response. Thus far, South Philly responded in the affirmative and nothing but good has come from inviting this miraculous image of Mary to grace the City of Brotherly Love, the birthplace of our nation. Our Lady of Guadalupe is capable of doing what we poor humans could never do. She intercedes for us par excellence and brings graces to all those who come to her with their needs. I pray Our Lady of Guadalupe will obtain blessings for each staff member and all who support the project with prayer, advice or monetary contributions. Sister Mary Paula Beierschmitt American Academy of the Sacred Arts South Philadelphia

Fueling debate To the Editor: A letter written three years ago faulted the federal government about fuel costs and warned about a future price of $5 for a gallon. Gasoline prices are up and climbing. All kinds of reasons will be given and broad-

cast from the leftist, lying media. America is replete with oil, under the ground and under her oceans. Democratic party/government and its job-killing Environmental Protection Agency and their taxes, controls and regualtions on oil, air, water, crops, foods, cars, trucks, planes, lands, banks, houses, buildings, toilets, tools, light bulbs, medicines, doctors, teachers, police, mothers, fathers, children, etc. have caused the high prices of gasoline and everything else for Americans. Republicans are at fault for being cowardly, being mute and allowing the Democrats and their news-omitting media to fool and abuse the people. We know that a rise in fuel cost will drive up the cost of all products on the market. The forces in the economy that move prices upward have already been ignited by government manipulation and the convergence of all these forces will be devastating. Americans must learn that they cannot trust the federal government to run their economy. Is the federal government too big? It is why the Constitution limits the federal government in Article 1, section 8, to provide for the defense, the general welfare of the United States and about 15 other powers, but the affairs of the people should be taken up when necessary at their state and local governments.

hope the Super Bowl matchup leaves diehard Eagles’ fans ruing their team’s refusal to realize that their leader is an example of the type of wuss Ed Rendell loves to disparage. Andy Reid manages this team as well as he manages his diet. I was once a big boy, too, so he has my sympathy for his corporeal conundrums. His coaching, however, earns no reprieve. I have always enjoyed the belief that people can learn from their losses. What excuse can Reid offer? Why, after 12 seasons, does he still seem like a fledgling novice? Too little oxygen going to his brain? An inherent desire for inhaling Ho Hos over examining x’s and o’s? Who knows? What I do know is that two teams with

far more pluck (my writing this for a family paper limits my vocabulary!) are Dallasbound. The Packers twice came to Philadelphia, this season, scoring a pair of wins. The Steelers will appear in their franchise’s eighth Super Bowl and will chase their seventh win. The Eagles are the NFL’s equivalent of the New York Mets. While the New York Yankees contend for division titles and World Series crowns, the Mets pursue .500 seasons. While the Steelers chase immortality, the Eagles covet 10-win seasons that dupe fans even more. What will it be next season, Andy? Can you convince the front office to upgrade the defense this offseason? If you do that, which I feel is the hugest task you have, this team could go far. I will not put you in next season’s Super Bowl, but you should score at least one playoff win. Your job will grow even safer and the front office will likely extend your contract. If those occur, your refrigerator will be the happiest appliance in town. SPR

South Philadelphia High, 2101 S. Broad St., basketball player is still on the mend after being attacked on the way to the team bus last week. “He’s doing a lot better,” coach George Anderson said Tuesday of junior forward Kyhir Davis. “He’s not back in school yet. He’s getting his work done from home.” Southern made a late-game comeback by making two foul shots in the final 30 seconds of the fourth quarter to take a two-point advantage Jan. 18 against Overbrook High School, Anderson said. Southern held on to the 55-53 lead and won the game. “There was no confrontation in the game,” he said. “There were no technical fouls. We had the regular handshakes after the game.” However, as the team loaded the bus around 6 p.m., snowballs and punches were thrown by some of their opponents. Led by the assistant coaches, the Southern players filed from the Overbrook gym to the bus that was parked about 30 yards from the exit. Anderson trailed behind carrying equipment bags, but saw some commotion up ahead. “I realized it looked like a scuffle in front of the bus,” he said. “It wasn’t a scuffle. It was a group of students assaulting another student in front of the bus and that was Kyhir.” Davis, a reserve on Southern’s varsity basketball team, was the last student in line, but snowballs were hurled from across the street at him and his teammates as they scurried on the bus. As Davis tried to step aboard, a few students pulled him back and began kicking and punching the 16-year-old, Anderson said. The doors to the bus were closed to prevent anyone else from hopping inside. “It was very rapid-fire,” he said. “Bang, bang. Everything happened quickly.” When Anderson caught up, he too was punched in the back of the head, but turned to aid Davis. “Basically at that time, I kneeled down with Kyhir and realized he was hurt pretty bad,” Anderson said. Police arrived to disperse the crowd, and Davis, who briefly lost consciousness during the assault, was transported to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia where his facial contusions were treated and he received about five stitches near his eye,

Lt. John Walker of Southwest Detective Division said. Four Overbrook students were suspended three to five days for the incident, School District of Philadelphia spokeswoman Shana Kemp said. Three of them were on the basketball team while the fourth was a cheerleader. No arrests have been made as of press time, but the police are interviewing students, coaches and fans that were in attendance, Walker said. “We’re still working on identifying the people responsible for the beating,” he said. “We’re hoping to, by the end of the week, have a handle on who committed the crime.” To report information, call Southwest Detectives at 215-686-3183.

Denial reversed The mother of a 12-year-old Dickinson Narrows’ girl was denied a handicap spot in front of their home by a city entity, but the decision was reversed four days after a lawsuit was filed. “… I hereby direct that the application be approved due to the extraordinary circumstances present in this matter,” Philadelphia Parking Authority Executive Director Vincent J. Fenerty Jr. said in a statement Monday. “I further direct that the installation begin as soon as possible after consideration of the presence of utility lines and other installation issues.” The authority denied Nil Sok’s request for a handicap spot in front of her MifflinStreet home for her special-needs daughter April 30 citing the “applicant needs consent of neighbor,” according to a lawsuit filed Thursday. “The application form includes a section asking whether there is consent of adjacent property owners, but the form does not condition grant of the space on the neighbor’s consent,” according to the lawsuit. Confined to a wheelchair, Salina Sok, 12, has a rare genetic brain disorder along with severe physical and cognitive disabilities. The preteen also has epilepsy and has “too many seizures to count each day,” according to her neurologist. Her frequent medical appointments, transportation needs and potential emergency situations warrant a handicap spot in front of the Sok’s home on the 400 block of Mifflin Street, according to the lawsuit.

Police Report “Nobody in Philadelphia controls the parking space in front of their house or their neighbors’ houses,” according to the lawsuit filed by David Ferleger, of his own Jenkintown-based law firm. “Permitting a neighbor veto of space for a child with intense physical disabilities, who is otherwise qualified for the parking program, is without any reasonable basis. The lawsuit deemed the denial in violation of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Rehabilitation Act, the Constitution, state law and city ordinance. The status of the suit was unclear with the authority now obliging as Ferleger did not return calls before press time.

Stickup bagged Two teens attempted to rob a woman in South of South area, but fled after she discovered they did not have a weapon. A 39-year-old was walking along the 2000 block of Kater Street when Dominque Daniels, 18, of West Oak Lane, allegedly walked up to her and demanded her belongings at 11:36 a.m. Jan. 18, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. He supposedly acted if he had a gun and pointed a black plastic bag in her face, which she pushed away and realized it did not contain a weapon. Quentin Lloyd, 18, of Overbrook, is believed to have approached as the woman started screaming, Tolliver said. Daniels allegedly struck her with his hands resulting in her keys falling from her purse. He supposedly reached for the keys, but fled eastbound on Kater with Lloyd. The woman was unharmed, Tolliver said. Officers saw the duo on the 1600 block of Christian Street. The two were positively identified, arrested and charged with attempted robbery, theft and receiving stolen property, as well as simple assault and criminal conspiracy.

A man was shot in the face and leg outside a Grays Ferry bar although the victim was not part of the altercation. The 39-year-old was outside Shirlrick’s Bar, Mifflin Street and Point Breeze Avenue, at 1:46 a.m. Sunday when a group of women began fighting in front of the establishment, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. A few minutes in, an unknown man fired a gun. The victim realized he had been shot in the face and right leg and was transported to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in critical condition by a private vehicle. Police located blood, ballistics and physical evidence at the scene, but did not provide a description of the shooter. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013.

Maria Donatucci, fourth from left, received an honorary plaque for her husband’s efforts from Elaine Fera, standing, president of GAMP’s Parent and Alumni Organization.

she said of the representative, whose district includes Girard Estate, Marconi, Newbold, Packer Park, a section of the Navy Yard, parts of Southwest Philadelphia and Delaware County. “Thank you for honoring Bob this way.”

“He was so passionate about community topics,” Della Barba added of the ally to her civic group, which she joined the year after its formation. Since she assumed the role of president, she could depend on Donatucci for input on such volatile topics as crime, nuisance bars and parking. “He was a real person,” Della Barba said of her friend, with whom she last spoke two days before his demise. As for his lasting effect on Girard Estate, she cited two apparent by-products of his diligence. “He worked hard for preserving the library,” she said of the 1935 Shunk St. facility, formerly the Passyunk Branch, that the City in April ’04 renamed the Thomas Donatucci Sr. Branch to honor the state representative’s father, a community figure who over four decades chartered Girard Estate’s future. “This space, too,” she added with a wave around the acoustically stellar auditorium. Della Barba knows people will remember Donatucci for more than these locations. “There was no partisanship with Bobby,” she said. “He just cared about helping people.” SPR Call 215-334-6673 to purchase a copy of the $10 documentary.

JODY DELLA BARBA, the civic’s president and a resident of the 2500 block of South 18th Street, spoke of Donatucci as “a friend to the community.” “He was the best friend GEAR has ever had,” she said of Donatucci’s commitment to the 29-year-old group she has headed for more than a decade. “He helped us with our Christmas in the Park celebration [at Girard Park, 21st and Shunk streets] and our St. Anthony Festival [at 17th and Ritner streets in June], among many other types of aid.” Della Barba introduced “Girard Estate: Ideal City Homes,” a 10-minute documentary paying homage to an area that joined the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places as a historic district in June 1999. The piece, a collaboration between GEAR and the Girard Estate Neighborhood Association, came as a result of the area’s winning a Preservation Alliance of Greater Philadelphia essay contest. “We had to write an essay about something special in our neighborhood,” she said of the area she has called home for most of her life and of which the Preservation Alliance offers self-guided walking tours. Della Barba and her neighbors won the competition and constructed the video,

for which Thomas Donatucci conducted research. Girard Estate consists of 481 homes, and the documentary examines what has endeared the residences to their occupants, including their use of Colonial Revival and Jacobean architecture and their inclusion of front and rear gardens. Della Barba, who has spent 45 years in her abode, noted in the video that the neighborhood’s early days thrived because of the incorporation of several Italian traditions, notably communal bonding. The opinions from the viewers revealed that being able to depend on Donatucci had become a current tradition. “I was good friends with Bobby,” Tom Rumbaugh of the 1300 block of South 13th Street said. The Passyunk Square resident’s children developed friendships with the Donatucci offspring years ago, and Rumbaugh noted that Donatucci always valued chances to interact with loved ones. “He was a family man first,” he said. “Politics is such a partisan business, but state Rep. Donatucci had a unique ability to build relationships with everyone,” state Sen. Larry Farnese Jr. said of his Democratic colleague. Farnese took office two years ago and often worked with Donatucci, whose local constituent service office is at 1809 Oregon Ave. “He always put his constituents first, commanding attention and bringing calmness and leadership to situations. I admired his relationship-building skills,” Farnese said.

appearances by the late figure’s family, including wife Maria Donatucci, who is running to occupy her husband’s vacant 185th District seat (see “Family Business,” page 8). “This is a very special night to honor Bobby,” GAMP’s principal Dr. Angelo Milicia said in a cordial welcome. The school leader reflected on the Donatucci family’s contributions to Girard Estate and to GAMP, which opened in 1974. “Maria has been an advocate for all of the GAMP children,” Milicia said of the mother of Thomas, 25, and Dierdre, 22. An anecdote revealed how she and her partner worked hard to secure funding for the auditorium, cafeteria and gymnasium, assistance that nullified the School District of Philadelphia’s inability to give Milicia much aid. “Now we have this auditorium, which makes for a new and wonderful experience,” he said, motioning to the 68-member concert choir decked out in blue blazers featuring the school’s name and a treble clef. “We are sure Bobby is watching over us.” Music director and vice principal Dr. Jack Carr played piano, leading the stylish contingent through “Defying Gravity” from “Wicked”; “I Know Where I’ve Been,” from “Hairspray,” which the school staged in November; and the soaring “You Raise Me Up,” which he found apt. “He raised us up so many times,” Carr said of Donatucci, who died Nov. 9 of obstructive sleep apnea, one week after another massive election victory, at age 58. Elaine Fera, the school’s Parent and Alumni Organization president, lauded Donatucci and his efforts in quadrupling proposed aid from former district CEO Paul Vallas. “Bobby acknowledged the importance of real estate development in the area,” Fera said, noting the creation of Brinton Estates and The Reserves in Packer Park and improvements in Pennsport. “Because of him, we received $17 million, with our cafeteria really standing out.” To the politician’s widow, Fera presented a black plaque that noted the school’s indebtedness, revealing that Donatucci is gone but never forgotten. Ascending the stage, Maria Donatucci beamed with pride to deliver her thanks. “If Bob were still with us, he would be embarrassed over all of this attention,” the resident of the 2500 block of Cleveland Street said. Needing a brief pause to stifle tears, she discussed her husband’s love for the Girard Estate community. “He would say he did everything because it was for the kids and the neighborhood,”

Anna Verna has sat at the head of City Council for the past decade, but will step down from her post at the end of the term. File Photo

Giving up her seat Following 36 years in City Council, its president announced she will not run for a 10th term. By Evan Jacoby Review Intern

S

ince 1975, many South Philadelphians have looked to Anna C. Verna for city services and guidance. After 36 years, the 2nd District councilwoman is calling it quits. “This has not been an easy decision for me, or one that I have taken lightly. For all of my adult life, serving the people of Philadelphia — and especially my beloved 2nd District — has been my way of life and my passion,” Verna said Monday in a statement. “... This has been my life’s work, so it has been a most difficult decision that I have made. However, I have decided not to seek another term in City Council.” Verna, 79, has been the City Council president for more than 10 years in addition to her duties as the representative for the 2nd District, which covers sections of South Philadelphia including Girard Estate, Grays Ferry, Marconi, Navy Yard, Newbold, Packer Park, Point Breeze, South of South, Sports Complex, West Passyunk in addition to Southwest Philadelphia and parts of Center City, for more than three decdes when she took over for her father William Cibotti who passed away. She made history by becoming the first woman elected as Philadelphia Council president in 2000.

Verna, a lifelong Philadelphian, devoted more than 60 years of her life to public service. From 1991 to ’98, she served as the chair of the Finance Committee, where she led an effort to stabilize a city in massive debt and saved taxpayers more than $1 billion. As Council president, Verna has remained an acclaimed voice in the taxpayer battle, fighting hard for business and citizen tax reductions. Verna has made affordable housing, especially for senior citizens, a top priority. As an Order Sons of Italy member, she also has been an integral part of the annual Columbus Day Parade that her late husband Severino Verna co-founded. Verna will finish her third term as Council president and ninth as 2nd District representative before she retires in January. Mayor Michael Nutter commended her service in a statement in which he deemed her “a savvy politician and a person who has played a critical role in making our city a better place in which to live and work.” “As a city councilman and now as mayor, I have always appreciated her energy, insight and ability to bring people together,” he said. “She served the public as if they were family and I’m sure that when she retires early next year, she’ll find new ways to serve Philadelphia.” SPR Comment at www.southphillyreview.com/news.

NEIGHBORHOODS continued from page 1 population hovers around 55,000 residents, as does a dropout rate approaching 60 percent. “This is not a sustainable model,” he said of the neighborhoods’ enduring battles with broken homes, criminal activity and joblessness. The United States Department of Education received 339 proposals for assistance in ending all of the contributors to poverty. Selecting only 21, the department notified Islam and Gamble Sept. 21, giving the pair a year to present a viable plan to rejuvenate the turf. To make this year’s Sept. 30 deadline, Universal is joining with Diversified Community Services, 1529 S. 22nd St.; the Grays Ferry Partnership; the Point Breeze Community Development Coalition, 1444 Point Breeze Ave.; the Point Breeze Performing Arts Center, 1717 Point Breeze Ave.; and the School District of Philadelphia. “We have a rare chance to change the lives of our children and youth, their families and our community for the better, forever,” Jim Helman, of the Grays Ferry Partnership, which unites seven Grays Ferry neighborhood associations, said. Enacting change will involve four interrelated work groups for the planning area that Islam and Gamble dubbed PointGrays Connections. Collectively, the groups address the cradle-to-career model that the two wish to offer the area’s residents. “We have to pick the African-American community up off its knees,” Gamble said. To give it an erect posture, Universal will use Diversified to monitor its early childhood education group. Foundations Inc., a Moorestown, N.J.-based nonprofit, will lead the career development group for children in grades pre-K through high school. The family development social services component will fall to Diversified, and Universal will head the community and economic development aspect. “We have to realize that education prevents atrocities,” Islam said. “We have a substandard America and must change our culture. It will not be an easy task by any means.” The cradle-to-career package of health and social services and improved schools will target the communities’ 10 learning institutions: James Alcorn, 1500 S. 32nd St.; Chester A. Arthur, 2000 Catharine St.; George W. Childs, 1599 Wharton St.; Stephen Girard, 1800 Snyder Ave.; Delaphaine McDaniel, 1801 S. 22nd St.; Smith Academics Plus, 1900 Wharton St.; Edwin M. Stanton, 901 S. 17th St.; Universal Charter, 801 S. 15th St.; Edwin H. Vare, 2100 S. 24th St.; and Audenried.

Mayor Michael Nutter, standing, discussed the reciprocal nature of promises. Kenny Gamble, from left, and the afternoon’s other dignitaries are hoping to make 10 schools models for the School District’s plan to increase graduation rates. s ta f f p h o t o b y g r e g b e z a n i s

Citing his education, state Rep. Kenyatta Johnson spoke of working aggressively to improve educational outcomes among his constituents. “This is the type of initiative that inspires me to continue to work hard to push my neighborhood forward,” the lifelong Point Breeze resident said. ISLAM AND GAMBLE submitted their application in June, hoping to secure a portion of the $10 million possible through President Barack Obama’s Promise Neighborhood Planning grants, which derive from the Harlem Children’s Zone Project that began in 1997. Geoffrey Canada, the project’s president and CEO, inspired Obama during his presidential campaign to offer similar assistance to suffering communities. By the end of this year, Canada hopes to have served 10,000 children. Islam and Gamble have the task of helping about 7,000 youngsters. Born and raised in Point Breeze, Verna called the day “momentous.” “Seventy percent of single-parent families with women as the head of the household live below the poverty level,” she said. “This initiative will allow the involved parties to ascertain benefits these communities richly deserve. If we all roll up our sleeves, we can make this plan a success.” Islam lauded U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah as being as influential as Obama in securing the funds. “We should be captivated by the notion of a promise neighborhood,” Fattah, who recalled playing at Vare, said. “We have to address the challenges that have been

a part of a generational cycle since my youth. Today, we have all the ingredients to make a change.” Fattah cited Mayor Michael Nutter and School District Superintendent Dr. Arlene Ackerman for their concern for improving the quality of life for all of Philadelphia’s public school learners. “Promises work two ways,” Nutter said. “To the parents, I want you to promise me you will send your child to school, you will check on and help them with their homework, you will stay involved in their education, you will enroll them in after-school programs, you will see them through beyond high school and you will stay involved in your community. If you make those promises, we promise you your neighborhood will be better.” Ackerman and district personnel are developing a Promise Neighborhood Advisory Committee and will unite with subcommittees to address all components of the PointGrays schools’ performances. “We want no more dreams deferred,” Ackerman said after reading poet Langston Hughes’ “Harlem,” which tackles deferred dreams. “We have to do everything to ensure that young people are successful. If Geoffrey Canada can do it in Harlem, we can do it here.” Gamble cited Ackerman as one of “the awakened ones,” those with enough gumption to extinguish blight. The originator of the 1970s Philly Sound style of music founded Universal in ’93 and has helped construct about 1,000 residential units. “We are here to try to put a team together,” he said of finding more alert helpers.

Universal students rose for an ovation at his request, prompting the proud figure to deem education the solution to the area’s dilemmas. “This is a time of work, a moment to nurture humanity. We have to learn of our place in the world and reach for the light,” he said. Calling the initiative “Philadelphia’s biggest deal in some time,” Gamble, along with Islam, hopes to have the area’s graduation rate hit 100 percent by 2020. Ackerman’s 2014 goal is 80 percent over six years for the whole district. The district’s rate is 63 percent over the same time span, according to a district’s August preliminary report. Through nearly 40 contributors, Universal raised additional matching funds and plans to use the next few months to unite agencies and work on frameworks to address ideas on program implementation. Over the next 18 months, Islam said his organization will apply for additional federal money. Come September, the Department of Education will determine which plans are deserving of more funding. Islam expects positive news. “We are building our model, with children at the forefront,” he said. “We just have to finalize what we will offer and how prepared we are.” SPR Contact Staff Writer Joseph Myers at jmyers@ southphillyreview.com or ext. 124.

hese days, locals won’t brave the cold weather for just anything. But they are coming out in droves to see Kate Brennan, of 12th and South streets, in “[title of show]” UPstairs at the Adrienne Theater. “The audiences have been so receptive — completely along for the ride,” Brennan, 29, said. “It’s a very fun and joyous show. It’s one of those shows that has those continuous cracks in it. Every other line is getting a laugh right now, which we, as performers, love.” Brennan plays Susan, the high-energy no-holds-barred wisecracker of the ensemble. It’s a nice escape from her day-to-day. “My character — all the characters — are real people. They were the original cast, the people who played the roles, who were themselves. My character’s name is Susan. She is the comedian of the group,” the actress said. “She is wacky and offbeat. Always trying to make people laugh. She has no censorship, so she’ll do anything for a laugh. “We all have those friends who can’t be serious for any length of time. As soon as anything gets serious, she wants to make it funny again.” “[title of show],” created in 2004, has found success on and Off Broadway. The Philadelphia production is the first musicontinued on page 16 Kate Brennan, left, and fellow colleagues, Michael Philip O’Brien, left to right, Kim Carson and Ben Dibble dabble during a scene of “[title of show].”

continued from page 14 cal for Mauckingbird Theatre Co., and this is the first time Brennan has worked with the group. The run that began Jan. 12 ends Sunday. “I hadn’t seen it or read it before. I knew the story line and it was Off Broadway to Broadway,” Brennan said. “The story of the play tells the story of the show becoming the show. I knew all about that. Other than that, I didn’t know all the songs or the script. So there were some surprises to be found.” The one-hour-and-30-minute production is as good a time for the cast as the audience and Brennan thinks it’s a musicalperson’s musical. “Well, I guess it’s a very universal musical. It’s what is considered a meta-musical,” Brennan, who carpools with fellow castmate and Bella Vista resident Kim Carson, said. “It refers to other musicals and other theater shows. If you are a fan of ‘Into the Woods’ and ‘[A] Chorus Line’ you will feel like you are in on the joke. “It’s really a love letter to theater in many ways. It calls out all musical theater’s faults and celebrates all the victories.”

BRENNAN GREW UP in West Philly, where her father worked for the police department. She left the area to study acting at the University of Scranton. “It’s not really an easy choice to make,” Brennan said of becoming an actress. “I don’t know [when I decided]. I never really made the choice to do it. I’ve always been very involved in the arts and the need for social change. I was always behind the scenes reading plays and listening to musical theater. “I guess [my parents] played show tunes in the womb and it rubbed off.” After completing her bachelor’s in acting and English, she returned to the area where she worked in the local theater scene. She then continued her schooling at the University of Virginia where she graduated in ’08 with a master’s in fine arts. “I’ve been teaching acting and voice lessons and doing all the things you do when you are an actor,” Brennan said. “As a graduate student, you end up teaching. You end up being an instructor for sections of undergraduates. I love school. I’d go back again if they’d let me. I love to learn and learn new things, and I have the added benefit to be able to work at a college.”

When Brennan returned to her hometown, she joined her now-husband in his adopted home at Seventh and Bainbridge streets, where they lived before moving to their current spot on South last month. “I did have a lot of college friends go to New York and Chicago. I’ve always returned here. It is my home. It will always be my home,” Brennan, who married fellow performing artist, Greg DeCandia, in June, said. “My father is from Second and Reed. My father grew up in South Philly, too. My then-boyfriend and now-husband lived here, as well. He was even drawn here so there must be something special about it.” As members of the “bourgeoning community,” Brennan and DeCandia head up BCKSEET Productions, a company founded by DeCandia in ’00 at Emerson College and brought to Philadelphia after, Brennan said. “He found Philadelphia was a supportive community of young theater companies and that’s why they chose to come here.” Brennan has taken on a larger role at BCKSEET over the years, and is now coartistic director with her better half. “I ended up getting involved with the company and I ended up producing stuff

with him and it’s really been a partnership ever since,” she said. BCKSEET has been a resident company at the Society Hill Playhouse for the past five years and involved, in large part to DeCandia’s commitment, in the Arts on South initiative, which brings art to vacant spaces on South. “We have a space at 535 South St., the BCKSTEET Creative Co-op. We’ve brought theater companies in to have rehearsals there,” Brennan said. “It’s a place where artists can convene and work together.” Brennan keeps her hands in multiple aspects of the local arts, including preparations for BCKSEET’s coming production, “Losing the Shore,” which will be UPstairs at the Adrienne March 15 to April 3. For the next three days, however, she is focusing her attention on mastering Susan. “I definitely have a dry sense of humor as she does,” Brennan said of her character. “But it is tiring playing her. She has a lot of energy that I don’t necessarily have.” SPR Comment at news/lifestyles.

Adam (Ashton Kutcher), left, and Emma (Natalie Portman) unravel the true meaning of friends with benefits in Ivan Reitman’s “No Strings Attached.”

By R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer

W

owed by Natalie Portman’s Oscar-bound turn in “Black Swan?” Witness a whole new dimension of the megastar’s ever-growing talent in “No Strings Attached,” the rote rom-com Portman not only produced, but hoists from the gutters of the January doldrums with a winning, sharply funny performance. If “Swan” showcased her riveting dramatic skills and physical dedication, then “Strings,” more than anything we’ve seen before, highlights Portman’s genuine gift for comedy. It suggests she can basically handle anything, and it promises a lengthy career packed with intriguing, entertaining and wide-ranging work. Which isn’t to say “Strings” is something you should rush out to see. Rife with the same deadbeat tropes that have derailed far superior forerunners, it’s the sort of movie you watch in its edited form on a lazy Saturday on cable, where it’s sure to wind up. Advice-spouting buddies, convenient montages, mad dashes and unconvincing love are all accounted for in this semi-risqué sexcapade, which sees a doctor (Portman) and a TV producer (Ashton Kutcher) use each other for nookie then struggle with the consequence of romance rushing in. While you’re yawning, know also that the pair’s cool chemistry is often squashed by their underwritten, bodysnatcher hollowness. It’s the accessories that make the ensemble here, with chief credit going to Portman’s instincts and vital support coming from the killer line deliveries of co-stars like Mindy Kaling and Lake Bell. Screenwriter Elizabeth Meriwether has been criticized for the film’s abundant raunch, but it’s a lot less strained or gratuitous than

the dirty bits of “Going the Distance,” just as the frank sexual comfort is much more comfortable than that of “Love & Other Drugs.” The dialogue’s got punch and the brazen rhythm, however uneven, yields a whole lot of laughs. “Strings” is the best thing to come from director Ivan Reitman since 1993’s “Dave,” and that it’s still only worthy of half-hearted recommendation says a thing or two about his output. He owes a big debt of gratitude to Portman, who helps turn this mediocre movie into a mediocre movie with benefits.

No Strings Attached R Two-and-a-half reels out of four Now playing in area theaters

Recommended Rental Monsters R Available Tuesday An inspiring example of artful, expensive-looking filmmaking on a budget, “Monsters” is the sci-fi feature debut of visual effects artist Gareth Edwards, whose subtle showmanship is matched by his aptitude for social allegory. Scoot McNairy and Whitney Able star in this impressive tale of aliens, borders, fear and ignorance — one of the great, rare finds of 2010.

SOUTh PHILLY REVIEW I january 27, 2011

took what now appears to be my annual trip to Jefferson Hospital. If you can’t get away to Florida, a week in a hospital where all you are expected to do is lay in bed with the singular goal of getting better isn’t half bad. I became known as the guy with the “nice veins.” I can see that on my headstone: He had nice veins. There have been worse epitaphs. If I were in the cast of “True Blood,” I would be a sex symbol for my veins. Doctors marveled over my CT scans and ultra sounds because they found nothing. There is no better sounding word than “nothing” when your tests are reviewed. I found out I am a big nothing and am proud of it. There is a but that must be inserted here. Some hidden bacteria hides in my body like a Republican at an ACLU meeting. An antibiotic is summoned to do battle with the invader and I envision some climactic confrontation between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader. Luckily, it appears the force is still with me. If you spend any time at all in a big-city hospital, you find it is a community in itself. Despite all the horror stories we read about hospitals, I find this one reasonably efficient. This is not to say that everything is perfect. There are still the times when you figure your body will rebel against the numerous vials of blood being drawn from it. Surely, it will flash empty at some point. You must also brace for the nocturnal visits in search of your vital signs. My belief is that so long as they are taking your vital signs, it is a sure sign you still have vital signs. The biggest puzzle is the use of the stethoscope. The use of the stethoscope was and still is the main instrument that you use as a kid to play doctor. In real life, I believe the stethoscope is merely a prop doctors and nurses use to make it appear as if they are doing something. I automatically respond at the sight of it by sitting up and taking deep breaths. Has anyone ever had a doctor actually make a diagnosis by using a stethoscope? It is as much of the medical ritual as the tongue depressor. You see it; you open your mouth and say “aaaah” and everyone seems satisfied. Despite all the miracles of medical technology, the stethoscope and tongue depressor remain as our last link with simpler times when the doctor was the friendly guy down the street who occasionally made house calls and gave out lollipops to the young patients. The hospital food remains hospital food, with all of the negative connotation that

accompanies the phrase. The description of the food on the menu gives one false hope. It is one time when you are actually happy the portions are small. It strikes me as ironic that here I am enjoying the best medical care, free of the worry of how to pay for it, while Republicans are threatening to repeal the new Affordable Care Act because they believe we can’t afford it. Republicans always promise that by cutting the “fat” out of the budget, you can afford the safety net that most of us depend upon to survive. As it turns out, what Republicans consider fat, most of us consider necessary. A good example of that is the newest darling of the Republican Party is New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. It turns out that his version of waste in government is teachers’ salaries, pensions and the elimination of the job-creating tunnel connecting the northern and most populous part of his state to New York. What is not considered fat is just as instructive. While playing Mr. Tough Guy with teachers unions, the governor is a virtual pussycat with the wealthy. He refused to tax those earning more than $400,000 annually. In the ongoing battle over health care in Washington, Republicans continue to call the new law job killing. Yet, no Republican has been able to point to a single instance where jobs lost were lost because of what they derisively call Obamacare. In point of fact, neutral analysis shows the new law will have no such effect. Republicans continue to rant against a government takeover of health care when they know full well that there is no such takeover. This new law they hate so much is much the same law Republican presidential aspirant and former Gov. Mitt Romney brought to Massachusetts. It is much the same law that another Republican, former senator and one-time presidential nominee for Bob Dole sponsored. If Obamacare is essentially the brainchild of Republicans, why are congressional Republicans trying to repeal it? The first reason is the Republicans today have moved far to the right of Romney or Dole. Secondly, Republicans believe by repealing the law, they can rob the president of a significant accomplishment and make him more vulnerable for re-election. Health care is not about you. It is about the future of the Republican Party. It is about the radical right that hates all things when it comes to the federal government, including Medicare and Social Security, which it would destroy by the use of vouchers and privatization. If the Republicans have their way, the next time you need hospitalization, you will have to worry about more than just getting better. You’ll have to worry about how to pay for it. SPR

ating just one slice of panettone bread can be very challenging. It’s so sweet and tasty that the tummy alwasy craves more. Next time around, consider adding a twist by preparing Edie Petrongolo’s Panettone Bread Pudding. This simple version from the resident of the 1500 block of West Ritner Street is an ideal winter delight. The smeltering amalgam of vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg will make one reminisce of a cozy day snuggled in during these Jack Frost months. This treat is sure to warm any snowy day. SPR

Philly

Edie’s Panettone Bread Pudding INGREDIENTS:

Set aside the cake. In a large bowl, whisk together the cream, milk, eggs, egg yolks, vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon and rum. Cut the cake into small cubes and add them to the mixture. Pour the mixture in a large, greased pyrex dish and bake for about 1 hour.

1 Italian panettone cake 2 cups of heavy cream or egg nog 2 cups of milk 4 eggs 4 egg yolks 1 teaspoon of vanilla 1 teaspoon of nutmeg 1 teaspoon of cinnamon 1/4 cup of rum 1 box of raisins (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Su Xing House By Phyllis Stein-Novack R e s ta u r a n t R e v i e w e r

P

eople become vegetarians for a variety of reasons. Former carnivores do so for political or ethical reasons. Some forego animal protein for health reasons. Either way, more and more of us are adding fruits, vegetables and grains to our daily diets. As Martha Stewart would say, “it’s a good thing.” I have never reviewed a vegetarian restaurant. My first turned out to be a kosher Asian restaurant a few steps from the Oyster House on Sansom Street. I’ve passed Su Xing House on numerous occasions. One day I decided to forego a lunch of New England clam chowder and a shrimp roll for an adventure in the world of Asian vegetarian cooking. I was pleasantly surprised at how tasty and fresh my meal turned out to be. I enjoyed it so much, I decided on a return visit with my sister Sandy, the picky eater, who finally on the last day of last year tried sushi for the first time. I figured she would be up for Asian vegetarian if I got her to sample raw fish at Zama. The restaurant has several levels with comfy booths. Some of the tables have a shiny gold lacquer which is quite pretty. A hot cup of tea warmed me up immediately on a blustery cold day. Many of dishes on the full-course lunch special menu are available during the dinner hour as well. With the help of my server, I chose the as-you-wish ($7.95) lunch. Specials include a choice of soup, a side dish and brown or white rice. Coffee/Café/Sweets Caffe Chicco: 2532 S. Broad St., 215-334-3100, $

The hot-and-sour soup was spicy and piping hot. It had a silky texture and was chock full of bits of tofu and mushrooms. The vegetable spring roll had a crispy free-of-grease wrapper and was filled with assorted Asian vegetables. As-you-wish is described as crispy tofu skin filled with black and golden mushrooms, dried bean curd and celery. Two plump blintzes-like savory confections were stuffed with heady mushrooms and seasoned just right. The platter was so generous, I could just about finish the entrée. I opted for brown rice which was steamed to perfection. During my meal, my server kept returning with the teapot and my cup was always filled. The ubiquitous fortune cookie had good news. My sister Sandy loved the hot and sour soup and as-you-wish. She is now gaining a sense of adventure in restaurant dining. “I cannot believe this is tofu,” she said as she dove into her platter. I tried the lotus root and peanut soup ($2.25) which was hot, temperature wise, and light. All it needed was a sprinkling of white pepper. The soup was the perfect preamble to my meal. I decided to visit India with cauliflower and potato curry ($6.50). I adore curries if they are not too overthe-top hot. This one was satisfying and not too spicy. The cauliflower and Yukon gold potato cubes were bathed in an appetizing yellow curry, which was sunshine on the plate. This time my side dish was

seaweed. It was different from the seaweed you get in a Japanese restaurant. The strands were a little thicker — they looked like a dark green linguine. Since there was no toasted sesame seed oil on it, I just sprinkled on some salt and pepper. The seaweed was cool and my vegetables were piping hot. This was a nice contrast. Brown rice came with the entrée. Our teacups were filled throughout our meal. And, by the way, Su Xing House was packed. My first outing in a vegetarian restaurant turned out to be a fine experience. So did my second.

T h e To q u e S t o p s H e r e

Get over that fear factor of baking by turning to the pages of author Lauren Chattman’s ‘Cookie Swap!.’ The best part is: These crunchy and sweet treats will last for several days. By Phyllis Stein-Novack Food Columnist

R

egular readers of my columns know I am not much of a baker. Once I saw how easy it was to bake biscotti last month with my friend Christopher, I became bitten by the baking bug. I am not running out to buy a KitchenAid. This appliance is heavy. I have no room on my counter and none in my walkin pantry. I can use a hand-held mixer for most of my baking needs. I also can beat by hand. Cuisinart makes a hand mixer which also serves as a stand mixer and it is much lighter than a KitchenAid. The mixer costs about $70. I recently received a copy of “Cookie Swap!” by Lauren Chattman. This delightful paperback features 71 recipes for all types of cookies. A cookie swap is a party among friends who gather together and trade cookies, recipes, tins and containers. Chattman gives tips on ingredients, the equipment you need to make cookies and storage. There are recipes for all sorts of holidays. Not all of the cookies are sweet. There are savory ones for you to, well, savor. Cookies are international and Chattman will take you to several countries for recipes for biscotti, amaretti, Linzer hearts, ginger snaps, rugelach and a few others. Although cookies and milk are classic, she also gives recipes for hot and cold drinks.

■ From Scratch Amaretti ■ Ingredients:

2-2/3 cups (14 ounces) of whole almonds 2 cups of sugar 1/2 cup of unbleached all-purpose flour 1/4 teaspoon of salt 4 large egg whites 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract 1 teaspoon of pure almond extract

Directions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line several baking sheets with parchment paper. Place the almonds and one-half cup of the sugar in a food processor and pulse five to eight times to chop fine (the mixture should look like very coarse sand). Add the remaining sugar, flour and salt and pulse several more times to combine. Transfer the almond mixture to a large bowl and add the egg whites, vanilla and almond extracts. Beat with an electric mixer on medium until thoroughly combined, stopping once or twice to scrape down the sides of the bowl. With moistened hands, roll tablespoons of the dough into balls and place them on the prepared cookie sheets, at least 2 inches apart. If you have any leftover, set it aside. The dough can be frozen at this point. Bake the cookies until they are lightly golden, for about 14 minutes. Let the cookies stand on the baking sheet for five minutes and then carefully slide the parchment paper with the cookies to wire racks. Let the cookies cool complete-

ly. Repeat with any remaining dough. From Scratch Amaretti will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for three to four days. Makes 48 cookies.

■ Gingerbread ■ Chocolate Chip Cookies Ingredients: 2 cups of unbleached all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon of ground ginger 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon 1/8 teaspoon of ground cloves 1/2 teaspoon of salt 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda 1-1/2 sticks of unsalted butter, at room temperature 3/4 cup of light brown sugar 1/4 cup of dark (not light or blackstrap) molasses 2 large eggs 2 cups of milk chocolate chips 1/2 cup of crystallized ginger, finely chopped

Directions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line several baking sheets with parchment paper. Combine the flour, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl. Place the butter, sugar and molasses in a large bowl and beat together with an electric mixer on medium until smooth, for about three minutes. Add the eggs and beat until smooth. Stir in the flour mixture until just combined. Stir in the chips and ginger.

Drop the batter by heaping tablespoonsful onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving about 3 inches between each cookie. The dough can be frozen at this point. Bake the cookies until the edges are firm but the tops are still soft, for about 10 minutes. Let them stand on the baking sheet for about five minutes and then carefully slide the parchment paper to a wire rack and let them cool completely. The cookies can keep in an airtight container at room temperature for three to four days. Makes 48 cookies.

■ Mini Strawberry Milkshakes ■ Ingredients:

1 pound of fresh strawberries, washed, stemmed, hulled and sliced 1/4 cup of sugar 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract 2 pints of vanilla ice cream 1 cup of whole milk

Directions: Combine the strawberries, sugar and vanilla in a medium bowl and let stand, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is dissolved, for about 15 minutes. Place half of the strawberries and half of their liquid in a blender with 1 pint of the ice cream and one-half cup of the milk. Blend until smooth and pour into small glasses. Repeat with the remaining ingredients and serve immediately. Serves eight. SPR Comment at www.southphillyreview.com/foodand-drink/features.

Horoscopes

By Mystic Terry Psychic Reader

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18): Gain the supA port of colleagues by expressing beliefs. Casual exchanges bring out shared values you can later use for a

project. Lucky number: 063. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20): Today is not the best time to give a presentation. Attendance may not be what you expect. Communicating thoughts becomes more challenging than usual. Lucky number: 812. ARIES (March 21 to April 20): Studies of interest should be engaged in this afternoon. Delve into philosophy, religion or whatever helps you to unwind. Lucky number: 745. TAURUS (April 21 to May 20): A very charismatic person should be treated with detachment. However, you could easily fall under this guru’s spell. You may unwittingly part with hard-earned cash. Lucky number: 268. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20): Relax by spending time listening to your favorite guru. This may involve meditation, visualization exercises or pondering inner life. Engage in what makes you feel light and happy. Lucky number: 674. CANCER (June 21 to July 22): Boundaries between you and a close companion could become blurred. Question why you would give up opinions and desires. If this persists, anticipate problems being accepted as an equal partner. Lucky number: 295. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22): Get together with your best friend and enjoy each other’s company. Be an empathetic listener if that’s what this person needs, but expect to tell stories and laugh over dinner. Lucky number: 982. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22): Daydreaming makes it difficult to focus on tasks. Get things done early to lessen the possibility of mistakes. Lucky number: 509.

S D F G H a s

LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22): This afternoon’s d workload should be light enough to indulge in office pleasantries. Chat up someone who is in a position that you aspire to reach. It could be a pleasant way to bond with a potential mentor. Lucky number: 402. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21): You may feel the family is being critical of your career progress. This only is an issue if you are having doubts about where you are going. Do not blame frustration on supporters. Lucky number: 417. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21): Your family buy something together. Everyone should be able to reach a smooth agreement. This may involve redecorating to beautify surroundings. Lucky number: 331. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19): You may expect everyone to go along with your professional dream. Do not become attached to unrealistic expectations. Lucky number: 327. SPR

Your new best friend SNICKERS Looking for an active dog to share your home with? Meet Snickers! Snickers is a 5 year old pit bull/German Shepherd cross who has been at our shelter for 8 months waiting for his forever home. Snickers loves long walks and has excellent leash manners! True to his herding dog roots, Snickers does not like fast movements. . . for that reason, we suggest that he go to a home with older children who understand how to play calmly with a dog. Snickers likes other dogs, and would likely be a good candidate to live with another dog. If you’ve got a dog looking for a buddy, why not bring him to the shelter to meet Snickers and see how it goes!

Young man advantage A Marconi hockey prodigy will join an international program that will take him to two European capitals.

By Joseph Myers

David Melaragni currently skates for 97 Team Comcast, where his coach is former Philadelphia Flyer Keith Primeau.

R e v i e w s ta f f w r i t e r

D

avid Melaragni is as cool as the ice on which he skates. In just under three months’ time, the 12-yearold resident of the 2700 block of South Eighth Street will have his work ethic rewarded when he travels to Stockholm, Sweden, and Riga, Latvia, to participate in an elite international competition. The defenseman has not had to guard against any onslaught of added pressure. “My classmates treat me as any other kid,” Melaragni said of his peers at Christopher Columbus Charter School, 1242-46 S. 13th St. The 5-foot-8 speedster may receive normal attention from his friends, but a notable hockey organization deemed him special Jan. 1, choosing him to join one of its seven boys’ teams. The selection will allow Melaragni to join his fourth elite squad since his hockey odyssey began when he was 3. The seventh-grader joined more than 225 invited players in Burlington, Vt., earlier this year. Vying for 51 positions, they competed in scrimmages, with Melaragni showing off skills he began to nurture at Rizzo Rink, 1001 S. Front St. He earned the right to awe the New England-based program with a solid performance in a summer North American Prospects Showcase in Buffalo, N.Y. His invitation came soon after, adding another impressive piece to his athletic biography. “This is my proudest hockey accomplishment so far,” Melaragni said. Joining the 98 East Coast Selects-Q Team will mark another huge step for the youngster, whose main goal is one day to shut down the NHL’s top scorers. After his time at Rizzo, he joined the Philadelphia Flyers Youth, with whom he spent two years. A three-year presence on the Little Flyers followed, and this season marks his first with 97 Team Comcast. His current squad and the Little Flyers are members of the Atlantic Youth Hockey League (AYHL). Melaragni mans the point for the Bantam Minor team, one of 17 squads in the league, which includes representatives from Hershey and Scranton.

“This team and the Little Flyers have made me used to travel,” he said of the upcoming 10-day visit to Northern Europe. Competition also has taken the young prospect to Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, as well as various Canadian locations. His schedule has accustomed him to working tirelessly on improving his abilities. The AYHL season features 32 league games, and, with tournaments and nonleague contests, Melaragni may play 60 to 70 games each year. “It’s a 12-month cycle,” his father, also named David, said of the ultra-competitive nature of molding talent. The older Melaragni began playing at Rizzo shortly after its 1979 opening. After his only son had given baseball a trial run, he turned him on to hockey. “I loved it right away,” Melaragni said. “I loved the speed and the hitting aspect.” USA Hockey’s rules have limited his use of checking, but nothing has kept him from being offensive-minded. “I love to rush the puck,” he said of leading offensive jaunts. “I don’t like to get scored upon, so I work on my defense, too.”

TONIGHT, LIKE EVERY Thursday and Monday night, Melaragni will venture to the Virtua Flyers Skate Zone in Pennsauken, N.J., for practice. Wanting to become an elite player, he receives insights from his Bantam coach, former Flyer Keith Primeau, who scored 87 goals for the Orange and Black over six seasons. Melaragni enjoys Primeau’s relentless pursuit of improvement, following a regimen that consists of running and stretching on Mondays and Taekwondo on Thursdays. “Coach Primeau has us work hard because he knows we’re winners,” he said of him and his teammates, who compete in 16-minute periods in rinks that follow the NHL’s 85-foot-by-200-foot dimensions. Selects Hockey knows Melaragni is a winner, too. Since 2003, it has exposed top young players across Europe and North America to “all avenues of hockey in an effort to facilitate opportunities at the NCAA, junior and professional levels,” according to its website. Responsible for 56 NHL Draft picks from ’07 to ’10, the Essex Junction, Vt.-based program hones prospects like Melaragni, demanding their best. The Marconi puck handler takes pride in knowing Selects’ personnel admire his best.

“I’ve always wanted to make a huge team like this,” he said of the 20-member unit that includes six Americans, with him as the lone Pennsylvanian, and 14 Canadians. His time with the team will begin April 22, as he and his mates will go through a seven-day training development camp in Stockholm. They will follow that with three days in the World Selects Invitational, an eight-team affair that will have Melaragni competing in at least seven games. “I have played up to three games in a day before,” he said without any apprehension towards the upcoming frenetic schedule. Another example of his coolness is the balance he strikes between school obligations and hockey responsibilities. “I work hard all the time to keep up my schoolwork,” Melaragni, who prefers math, said of his academic endeavors. Once April comes, the Davids will hit Europe, with his mother Dana remaining to look after daughters Nicollette and Giavanna. The girls and his grandparents watch David often on what his mother calls “hockey family trips.” Upon his return, Melaragni will likely have to write a report on or give a presentation of his hunt for cultural expansion. Visiting museums and landmarks will complement his quest to meet distinction among the best competition. A frequent watcher of the NHL Network, he roots for the Flyers and the Los Angeles Kings. He considers Detroit Red Wings defenseman Nicklas Lidström his favorite player, citing his leadership skills. The pre-teen wants to attend a prep school, with an eye on competing in the renowned Ontario Hockey League. Heeding his father’s claim that he should always look to improve his game, Melaragni knows he must continue to dedicate himself to obtaining greatness. If he does, he could join the few Italian Americans who have sped up and down NHL arenas, including current Flyer Daniel Carcillo. “I don’t feel any added pressure to perform,” Melaragni said. “I just keep looking to grow.” SPR Contact Staff Writer Joseph Myers at jmyers@ southphillyreview.com or ext. 124.
