egend holds that Queen Marie Antoinette declared “Let them eat cake” during an 18th-century French famine. Courtesy of Saturday’s appearance on Country Music Television’s smash show “My Big Redneck Vacation,” Michael Scipione and Michael Giletto could profess “Let them eat snake.” The lifelong lovers of healthy fare enlisted the slithering reptile and other unconventional offerings to help Jared and Michelle Thomas mark their nuptials in The Hamptons, Long Island, N.Y.’s lauded location that last summer hosted the Louisiana residents and their kin. “It was definitely a unique experience,” See REALITY TV page 8

pon taking office in 2008, Mayor Michael Nutter stated he wanted Philadelphia to become America’s greenest city. His March 8 Fiscal Year ’13 budget and Fiscal Year ’13-’17 Five-Year Plan proposals revealed he would love for

it to end up as the healthiest, too. Among numerous aspects of the $3.6 billion collection of ideas, the second-term leader announced the City’s proposed uniting with The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia to devise a pediatric and adult care services facility on the site of Health Center No. 2, 1720 S. Broad St. The plan would remove CHOP, the primary fund seeker and

lone financier, from the St. Agnes Medical Center, 1900 S. Broad St., which with 30,000 patients is the fastest growing practice in the hospital’s care center network, spokesman George V. Bochanski Jr. said, and give families one location for aid. Other sources also could enable the rebuilding See CHOP page 14

Word on the Street

With players Chase Utley and Ryan Howard likely starting the season on the injured list, what is your outlook for the Phillies? “I think it’ll be a bust. They won the championship [in 2008] and they got their rings, so they can just sit back for the season anyways.� Bobby Trauffer, 17th and Tasker streets

“They can still win it all. They have a good line-up and the second string is just as good as those guys. I’m not a big [Ryan] Howard fan anyways.� Frankie Foley, Broad and Ritner streets

“They’ll be OK. I’m sorry to see both players missing, but I think the team will do fine I’m sure.� Janet McQuilkin, Front and Gladstone streets

“I don’t think the team will do good at all. I don’t think they can win 90 games. I think they’ll barely make it to the playoffs, and if they do, I’ll be surprised.� Michael Maniscalco, Second and Wolf streets Interviews by Samantha Byles Photos by Bobby Kitteredge

A fancy crowd

Faith in justice To the Editor: The case involving Trayvon Martin resulted in his death. I do not know exactly what occurred. My interest is not whether justice was served in this matter because I am a strong believer in divine justice. I know that anyone who commits an unjustifiable act will be judged and sentenced by God, the great judge. My concern is, it appears that many groups are getting involved with this tragic situation because the young man killed was black. This in itself is a form of discrimination. As a person who has experienced the loss of loved ones and friends due to black-on-black crimes, where the perpetrator hasn’t been prosecuted or investigated, I know how it feels. But, I ask those groups who are very angry over this matter, would you react in the same manner (vigorously seeking justice) if Martin was white, or of another race? This is very serious. As a Christian I was taught, and strongly believe that everyone, regardless of race, should receive justice. It is a great tragedy because it appears that the primary reason for many who are involved in this matter, is that it’s associated with racial issues instead of genuine concern for a lost life. My prayers will encompass the families and friends of Martin and Zimmerman, because God isn’t a racist. And justice will take place!

Republican or Democrat, the vicious cycle continues. Is taxing the rich the answer? No because those folks who employ others will only turn around and increase the prices of whatever it is they produce. When that happens, we all pay the price. When a gallon of gas goes up, so does a gallon of milk. If the minimum wage is increased to help the less fortunate, that same cycle is repeated because those paying that wage will now increase the cost of their product as well. It’s a lose-lose situation and our Washington folks could care less because survival is not a problem for them. Printing more money, as our government has been doing, will cost the next generation plenty unless it is stopped. Just like you and me at home, you cannot keep running up your credit cards because it will blow up in your face and you’ll have nothing to show for it.

Gauging the gallon To the Editor: As we now have hit $4 for a gallon of gas, let’s see who is really concerned about the little guy that the politicians tell you they care about. Do you think that our congressmen and senators really care? Would you care if you had a salary of $150,000 a year and up? Would you care if you had a guaranteed pension of that same amount and only had to work a few years to get it? Well, that is the case for our reps in Washington who are not affected by any of this because they don’t play by the same rules that we have to.

An 11-year-old is dead after a drunk driver allegedly caused a crash in Bella Vista Sunday. By Amanda L. Snyder Review Managing Editor

A

Florida man is in jail after driving under the influence and getting in an alleged crash that killed a girl and injured four others. Max Drosi, 28, of Miami, was driving a 2007 Chevy Impala south on the 1000 block of South Eighth Street when he is believed to have run a red light and smashed into the passenger’s side of a 2003 Nissan Pathfinder that was headed westbound through the intersection on Washington Avenue at 12:32 p.m. Max Drosi Sunday. Drosi’s car then allegedly mounted the sidewalk on the southeast corner and struck four pedestrians and a building. The Pathfinder’s driver, a 48-year-old woman, was transported to Hahnemann University Hospital with neck and back pain, O’Brien said. Samantha Nguyen-Ortanez, 11, of Sicklerville, N.J. was pronounced dead at the scene while the other three pedestrians were transported to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, O’Brien said. A 45-year-old man complained of chest pain and possibly needed stitches to close a gash on his head. A 26-year-old woman had a possible broken arm and a 2-yearold boy had a possible broken foot. Drosi was unharmed. He was charged with homicide by vehicle while driving under the influence, involuntary manslaughter; three counts of and aggravated assault by vehicle while driving under the influence; and related offenses. He is in jail and being held without bail, according to court records.

Police responded to investigate a home on the 700 block of South 19th Street at 4:31 p.m. when it was reported Shawn Andrews had not been seen in days, Officer Christine O’Brien of the Police Public Affairs Unit said. Inside, officers discovered the 41-year-old’s body with multiple stab wounds to his head and back in his bedroom closet. He was pronounced dead at

5:12 p.m. at the scene. To report information, call Homicide Division at 215-686-3334 or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

SOUTh PHILLY REVIEW I march 29, 2012

eeka Outlaw had taught Damon Gregory Stafford in middle school at James Alcorn, 3200 Dickinson St., about 10 years ago and periodically ran into him in Grays Ferry. “His smile,” the resident of 26th and Wharton streets said Tuesday when asked what she recalled about him, “and he was nice. He wasn’t disrespectful. He was playful. He was very playful. He was a good kid.” Stafford was shot and killed inside a Chinese restaurant Saturday evening. At 6:56 p.m. Saturday, the 21-year-old of the 1500 block of South Etting Street was wounded in the head and neck inside Twin Dragon, 2700 Dickinson St., Officer Christine O’Brien of the Police Public Affairs Unit said. He was transported to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania where he was pronounced dead 15 minutes later. There were no suspects and the motive was unknown at press time. Residents gathered Monday evening to pay tribute to Stafford and stand up to violence in Grays Ferry. Although this was the first in the community this year, in 2011, there were seven — four of which occurred in the fall over a 10-day span. “What I try to do is when our group [Don’t Shoot … I Want a Future] is doing something in the area, I try to get all the nonprofits involved, so we can be strong together,” Ella Best, the organization’s cofounder, said. The lifelong resident of 27th and Sears streets organized the demonstration with

groups such as Unity in the Community, Tasker Elite and Residents Organized for Advocacy and Direction, which Outlaw heads. “It seems like every summer you find out about a child — I find out about a child that went to Alcorn that got killed,” the resident of 26th and Wharton streets said of the trend that includes a student in ’11 and two in ’10. It was difficult for Outlaw to decide what to say at Tuesday’s event as she lost her 2-year-old daughter in a car accident at Wilson Park, 2201 S. 22nd St., in ’04. “‘What am I going to say?’” she said of her thought process, “because I know when my daughter passed, there wasn’t anything anyone could say to me. … When you lose a child, you’re losing a piece of you. This a membership I wouldn’t wish on anyone.” About 150 residents marched from Best’s block to the site of Stafford’s memorial at 27th and Dickinson where speakers, including 2nd District Councilman Kenyatta Johnson, addressed the violence. “He said he will come every time that we come and ask him, but it got to get better,” Best said. “The main thing is we got to do something about these guns.” Best cited the need to take an active role in directing the youngest generation. “The parents need to be more involved,” she said. “You need to check under beds to make sure they’re aren’t guns in the house.” To report information, call Homicide Division at 215-686-3334 or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

News

REALITY TV continued from page 1 Scipione said Sunday from Body World Fitness, 1622 W. Passyunk Ave., the hub for Absolute Definition, his 17-year-old conditioning program, of preparing rattlesnake, alligator on a stick, skewered groundhog and pigeon for the hungry husband and wife. A resident of the 900 block of Emily Street and an alumnus of South Philadelphia High School, 2101 S. Broad St., he has blended passions for fitness and food for more than 30 years, giving his training career a complement in 2010 by starting the catering service Sano. Italian for “healthy,” his brainchild specializes in healthy upscale cuisine, a seemingly apparent contrast to what filled the newlyweds’ plates. “The Louisiana-based foods kept the participants close to their culture,” Scipione, a veteran of many culinary events, such as the Atlantic City and Philadelphia Food and Wine festivals, said of the 29-year-old network’s decision to match the grub with crawfish, fried chicken salad and scallops. A first-year hit, “Redneck Vacation” transported a Shreveport clan to the swanky Hamptons to analyze differences between Southern citizens and their Northern neighbors. The hourlong creation makes obvious the former’s infatuation with simplicity, even if the provisions sound tough to swallow. “Birds all cook the same,” Scipione said of placing pigeon on the menu for the 10th episode, titled “Beerly Beloved.” As for the groundhog, he deemed it low on meat yet interesting to behold. Plump or not, the rodent drew raves, giving him an example of the country’s diverse dietary interests. “The day after the September filming, I was in New York City for Fashion Week,” he said. “I had to adapt quickly from being around hillbillies to interacting with the elite.” Regardless of their choices, Scipione said he found the bride, groom and their guests mellow and nice. He also could have deemed the males inventive, as he distributed drinks from a blender that relied on a Weedwacker motor. “There were almost 12 hours of constant filming,” he said. “Nothing was scripted, so everything seemed relaxed.” Scipione partook in the frivolity through his three-decade friendship with Giletto, which began over shared obsessions with pumping and ingesting iron. “We reconnected three years ago, and it was as if nothing had changed,” Giletto, a Mickleton, N.J., dweller said of intensifying their promotion of physical vigor. Formerly of the 2800 block of South Warnock Street, Giletto graduated from

Michael Scipione and Michael Giletto, above, second and third from left, respectively, dealt with customary and unusual food to help a Louisiana couple to enjoy its reception. Scipione, right, prepared drinks thanks to a Weedwacker motor that he used as an alternative power source. P h o t o s P r o v i d e d b y B r ya n S m i t h

the Philadelphia High School for Creative and Performing Arts, 901 S. Broad St., and JNA Institute of Culinary Arts, 1212 S. Broad St. He claimed the American Culinary Foundation’s ’02 Chef of the Year Award and has appeared on the Food Network’s “Chopped,” “Iron Chef America” and “Ultimate Recipe Showdown.” Executive chef at Long Branch, N.J.’s Ocean Place Resort & Spa, he used bravado to land another television assignment. “I had heard the producers wanted a French chef,” Giletto said of approaching his July audition with levity. “I went in and told them they needed nothing but the best of South Philly.” The Mr. America runner-up beefed up his preparatory team by adding Scipione, with whom he has often collaborated on tasks. A food fanatic since childhood, Giletto has worked often with what he termed “out-of-the-box game,” so the groundhog failed to make him blink. “My overall goal is to make great food,” he said, “no matter how traditional or unique it may be.” SCIPIONE, OWNER OF a decorated résumé that includes a turn on “The NBC 10 Local TV Chef” competition and catering duties for the ’10 area premiere of the Jennifer Lopez film “The Back-up Plan,” has enjoyed recent local success. He assisted Ippolito’s Seafood, 1300 Dickinson St., by adding 25 items to the Passyunk Square establishment’s meal options and aids nearly 100 exercise-craving clients each month. Accustomed to long-term interaction with customers who covet healthy

victuals without having to sacrifice flavor, he found his one-day experience among people not as selective quite educational. “It was a total clash with my nutritional philosophy,” Scipione said with a laugh as he recalled readying the food. The two gurus excitedly fraternized with the other helpers and enjoyed their exchanges with the Thomas clan, whom CMT selected to occupy a $4-million house. The newlyweds’ big day also gave them a moment to shine. “They loved the food,” Scipione said of the choices, noting only compressed octopus, a tryout dish, failed to sate them. They also heartily imbibed the liquor, with beer and assorted shots gratifying their gullets. A particularly humorous aspect occurred when Scipione received a tutorial on how to use the makeshift blender. “Hysterical,” he said of the lesson, which kept spirits high as the attendees, whose revelry transpired on a converted tennis court, partied country style. “It wasn’t crabs and spaghetti, but it was a delight to help them,” Giletto said in reference to two foods that helped his culinary mentality to thrive. The activity kept the friends from being crabby, as the show, set to air its season finale Saturday and to resume in June, filled the day and night with laughter and high jinks, including calling on a two-story beer bong to induce altered gaits. “They are used to hunting and fishing,

so it was good to give them a break and let them enjoy the grub,” Scipione said. He and Giletto, who earlier this month worked the Philadelphia International Flower Show, are months removed from filming but with only five days elapsing since the airing, they have begun to think more of their individual aims. “People need healthy options constantly,” Scipione, whose honey jalapeno pulled chicken soft taco has won acclaim, said. Having sought a spot on “The Next Food Network Star,” he will press forward with his national goal, as will Giletto, who would love his own show. “‘Redneck Vacation’ showed my drive,” he said. “If it’s the right place and the right time, opportunities will come.” SPR Contact Staff Writer Joseph Myers at jmyers@ southphillyreview.com or ext. 124.

News

CHOP continued from page 1 of the South Philadelphia Branch, 1700 S. Broad St., and continued improvements to DiSilvestro Playground, 1701 S. 15th St., creating a close trio of health helpers. “If all three projects come to fruition, everybody will end up winning,” Bochanski, whose employer has operated at St. Agnes for 40 years, said of the design to enhance well-being, literacy and recreation. Though the library and playground projects are developing gradually, the main element has been gaining zealous support since its autumn genesis. Hospital officials, with no space to expand St. Agnes, asked Health Commissioner and Deputy Mayor for Health and Opportunity Donald F. Schwarz if any South Broad Street location could accommodate their clinic, Bochanski said. The Department of Public Health’s second-busiest primary-care clinic with 53,563 visits last year, Health Center No. 2 became the choice. CHOP has begun to appropriate funds for the projected transition and will seek donor aid to make its vision more feasible. The entity’s benefactor role may ease taxpayers’ concerns, too, as Health Center No. 2 renovations would cost $7 million and rebuilding it would total $10 million, according to a City release. Hearings on Nutter’s ideas will occur through May 9, with City Council charged with approving a budget by month’s end. Specifics on the new center’s price tag remain incomplete, yet other undertakings, including the other Newbold projects, have affiliated costs. A $4.1-million initiative would keep the police force at 6,500 officers by hiring 400 officers by the end of next fiscal year. The police and health departments would share the proposed $9 million University City venue that would serve as their headquarters. Six police stations and 11 firehouses would receive improvements through a $6.7-million allotment, with $7 million designed to cover a three-year Neighborhood Library Improvement Program and $8.7 million to improve recreation centers. The last two figures could help South Philly to establish what Bochanski sees as an unprecedented and inspirational marriage of resources. “Literacy has such importance in multiple areas of life,” he said of hopes to bring an offshoot of CHOP’s Reach Out and Read program to the 47-year-old branch. “Recreation also helps to engage communities in acquiring management of the body and mind.” PHILADELPHIA’S EIGHT HEALTH centers often tend to the city’s neediest residents, as around half of last year’s 339,000 visits involved patients without insurance, with the local site being above the system average,

An area hospital’s philanthropy could transform Health Center No. 2, with additional funds required to rebuild its neighboring spot for reading and research needs. S ta f f P h o t o b y G r e g B e z a n i s

health department spokesman Jeff Moran said, noting 81 percent of treated clients had incomes below the poverty level, which sits at $19,090 for a family of three. As St. Agnes also serves low-income populations, children and adults could find the projected institution, which the City has said it would like to open within three years, a haven for their dual dilemmas.

“St. Agnes is too cramped to help all of the area’s needs,” Bochanski said. “We are excited about the timing of the opportunity.” Nutter, who dubbed his strategy a means “to innovate and rethink how City government is operated in order to improve the lives of all Philadelphians,” voiced similar anticipation. “The possibility of integrating these three

new facilities — health center, library and rec center — would allow us to provide coordinated services that include muchneeded health and wellness programming and literacy training,” he said. Nutter made apparent that the CHOP trek to Health Center No. 2 has strong backing while stressing the remaining area ideas need extra championing. Regardless of their precarious status, the latter plans are not short on support. The South Philadelphia Branch opened at Broad and Ritner streets Nov. 24, 1914, closing in ’65. That same year saw its relocation to its present spot, and renovations occurred in 2000 as part of the City’s Changing Lives campaign, which the branch website said brought Internet service to every library. “There is no concrete information yet about the idea to combine a health center and library in South Philadelphia since this project is in a very early stage,” Sandra Horrocks, the Free Library’s vice president of external affairs, said. “We do, however, have a very close connection with Children’s Hospital. In fact, [CEO Dr.] Steve Altshuler is on our Board of Trustees and is committed to the library and the work of our branches.” Bochanski said CHOP could supply numerous programs and reading specialists to the book sanctuary to strengthen familial appreciation for literacy. “The connection between literacy and health is undeniable,” he said. “Having the first allows one to research how to obtain the second.” One of 11 Philadelphia Parks & Recreation Department playgrounds in South Philly, DiSilvestro debuted in 1961. Nutter said he could foresee “creating a brand new recreation center” to replace it, but Leo Dignam, executive commissioner for programs, said enhancing is the better choice. His department met with community members March 6 to discuss DiSilvestro’s future. Dignam said the City is seeking amenities for movement within the expanse, with a walking track as a likely addition. “The building would remain the same and would offer opportunities for greening,” he said. Dignam revealed City Council will divide the $8.7 million among its members, who will decide how to use funds, with 2nd District Councilman Kenyatta Johnson to determine what would beautify DiSilvestro. “The sky’s the limit,” Dignam said. “Conceptually, we could help the playground through our research on obesity and proper nutrition,” Bochanski added. “Anything to help families. Everything has such intrigue and is capable of really transforming South Philly.” SPR Contact Staff Writer Joseph Myers at jmyers@ southphillyreview.com or ext. 124.

16 SOUTH PHILLY REVIEW I march 29, 2012

A South of South musician is strumming his talents with a Philadelphia-based indie group while laying the solo tracks for his album. By Jess Fuerst Review Contributor

R

ight now, Brooke Blair is learning how to play the ocarina. “It’s not going too well,” Blair, of 20th and Bainbridge streets, said. “It’s always been an interesting sound so it seemed like a fun little challenge. There are sounds on a keyboard that are like it, but they sound false and corny, so I felt like doing the real thing.” The ancient flute-like instrument is just the latest in line that Blair, who has taught himself every instrument he plays, has looked to conquer. “My dad always had instruments around. It was more of a hobby. He was never a musician,” Blair said. “He would make instruments, like banjos and acoustic guitars, percussion instruments [that were] laying around the house. I played piano, drums and played in a high school band.” Now, Blair and his younger brother, Will, are members of East Hundred, a locally based indie rock group founded in 2004. Working with his brother is a blessing and a challenge — but no more so than making all five band members happy. “Usually [Will and I] always end up spending enough time on every issue that we compromise and it’s usually better because of it,” Blair said. “More so than being brothers, it’s hard enough if you get five people in a room long enough and try and get them to agree on anything, it’s difficult. “We have a democratic way of doing things but ultimately we get five people to play and we are all equally happy or agree on it.” The band has toured in the past and played many local shows, with the next coming up April 5 at North Star Bar. However, recently, Blair has spent a lot of time working on his newest venture.

Lifestyles “Things have been slowing down so I have been spending more time [on a solo album]. Hopefully in six months it’ll be done,” the South of South resident said. “It’s originals. They are kind of background, cinematic music. A lot of guitar work and keyboard … I have 13 songs right now and I need to stop and complete those and then move on to something else.” Blair self-recorded the album in East Hundred’s small studio in Port Richmond. The process was an escape from the dynamic of being in a multiple-member group. “It’s a lot of, just actually the exact opposite of what the band is, how democratic the band is,” Blair said. “The band is great, how it works, and sometimes it’s frustrating. But working on my own and playing everything, it’s solitary and it’s as exciting. I like it equally, but it has a different kind of payoff.” THE BLAIR BROTHERS grew up in Roanoke, Va., where the youngest got an earlier start than his older brother. “Will started his first band with buddies in elementary school,” Blair said. “I’m one-and-a-half years older than him, but I didn’t start my first band till I was in fifth grade. By college, we thought, ‘Why don’t we just team up and start working

They would eventually form the live hiphop group Infectious Organism, which, Blair said, “is the worst band name in the history of band names.” “We were doing pretty well in the southeast, drawing decent numbers in,” Blair said. “When groups would come to town and need a local opener, we were the go-to live hip-hop band. It was a blessing to be a bigger band in a smaller city.” After a successful run on the college circuit, the group wanted to make a move and Philadelphia, where they had pulled in a strong influence from The Roots and played the venue South Street Blues, formerly at 21st and South, was a good fit. “That whole kind of neo-soul thing was big at the time. What The Roots were doing, also with producing other artists, was pretty intriguing,” Blair, who moved locally in ’01, said. “We felt it was not as overwhelming as New York. It was a huge move and we felt like we could get our roots set up here and start playing in New York, which we did quite a bit.” Shortly after moving, the trio disbanded, only to reform a few years later with two additional members as East Hundred, which had a very different sound. “It was definitely more electronic influenced [at the founding]. There is a mix of

programming, electronic keyboard, live instrumentation, we were heavily into it at that time,” he said. “Then we started to grow more into a live rock band, straightforward rock.” Through success with both groups, Blair has been lucky enough to play with headliners such as OutKast, Run-DMC, The Deers and Jane’s Addiction. “We played with Jane’s Addiction in Atlantic City and that was another band we grew up listening to,” he said. “It was one of those things where you are just like, ‘How the hell did this happen?’” By 34, Blair has already lived through multiple musical lives. As he pushes forward to put the finishing touches on his solo album, there is no telling where the next wave of inspiration will take him. “It seems like it’s always an evolution. [My music] tends to go in phases, when I’m digesting that and loaning that musical style,” Blair said. “The biggest dream all of us, pretty much the majority of musicians, have is never really to be a superstar, but to get up everyday and do it as a career — to be able to make a living doing it. “I haven’t given up on that idea.” SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/news/lifestyles.

This and that

I

can’t get all hot and bothered about Mayor Michael Nutter’s ban on feeding the homeless outdoors. He didn’t ban feeding them, folks! Just “outdoor” feeding. If I want to have a family barbeque in Logan Square, would I be permitted? ... When did our country lose its sense of humor? Robert De Niro sarcastically cracks this country might not be ready for a white first lady and there’s an uproar on Fox News. Newt Gingrich demands an apology (not from De Niro) but President Barack Obama. Mitt Romney’s wife, Ann Romney, said she laughed (I like her already). Our national motto for 2012 ought to be Lighten Up. ... Columnist Michael Kinsley once said a faux pas in politics is when one inadvertently tells the truth. Romney’s communications director had his own inadvertent moment of truth last week. When asked how Romney could move to a more moderate position if he wins the nomination, he said the campaign would just hit a reset button, like shaking up an Etch A Sketch. I am not sure why that would shock anyone, as Romney has already flip-flopped on most of his previous positions. In order to win his party’s nomination, Romney is being forced to abandon all rational thought. Once he presumably wins the nomination, he’ll plead temporary insanity and hit reset. In my day, we used a Magic Slate. ... Some outraged Catholics and pro-life supporters protested outside Independence Hall last week, and I defend their right to have done so. It involves the federal mandate that all employers (religious organizations are exempt) include contraception coverage in employee health plans. Philadelphia’s archbishop is upset that this mandate would cause Catholic employers to violate their conscience. If polls are correct, about 98 percent of sexually active Catholic women use some form of birth control, so while Archbishop Charles J. Chaput may see this as a pressing issue, he might want to check with most of his flock. Also, what about the rights of non-Catholic female employees who work for Catholic employers for whom the use of birth control is not a religious issue? By unwisely conflating contraception and abortion, the pro-life movement has undercut its own strategy that had been building momentum. ... Aren’t there really only two options left for most of us who want to see the practice of sending our troops into harms way for

multiple tours of duty end? Either accelerate the withdrawal of American soldiers out of Afghanistan or institute a draft so we can satisfy every war that Sens. John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Joe Lieberman want to get us involved in. ... Republicans desperately want to repeal The Affordable Care Act (or what they scornfully call Obamacare). Tell us then, what would you do for unemployed young adults younger than age 26 who would lose their health coverage under their parent’s plan? What would you do about insurance companies who presently deny folks care who have pre-existing conditions? What would you do about those young adults who choose not to get health coverage, get into a serious accident, and must be treated at the expense of the rest of us who were responsible enough to get health coverage? And especially for Romney, why would Pennsylvania folks be less worthy than Massachusetts folks who love their Romneycare? Will someone please ask Gov. Tom Corbett’s wife if she got raped and wanted to have the fetus aborted, would she be happy just to shut her eyes while the state forced her to have a medically unnecessary ultrasound? Who will pay for these medically unnecessary and not physician-prescribed ultrasounds? I like sports talker Mike Missanelli’s show on 97.5, but his argument against the suspension handed down to the New Orleans Saints coach for rewarding his players for injuring opponents was way off base. The claims are two-fold. On the first point, Missanelli claims NFL Commissioner Roger Goodall’s harsh penalties are an admission that safety issues are a big deal in the NFL; therefore, more lawsuits will occur. Circumstances have changed. No longer is the league one that winks at concussions. Goodell has imposed strict guidelines on what defensive players can and can’t do. Repeat offenders have been handed suspensions and fines. Missanelli’s other argument, that the penalties against one team will do nothing to stop the practice in the future would be correct, if the NFL hadn’t taken action. By instituting an evolving series of rules to protect player safety and handing down stiff penalties against offenders, the NFL can argue it is taking every reasonable measure possible. You can’t prevent serious injuries in a violent sport, but you can minimize them by enforcing the rules and dealing harshly with those who violate them. ... Listen up. The president doesn’t control the price of gas. Oil prices are set globally. During Obama’s four years, oil production in America has increased while our imports have fallen.

Movie sleepers

Batman and Spider-Man had better watch their backs — these potential hits are ready to steal away audiences. By R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer

W

ith “The Hunger Games” having just enjoyed one of the biggest opening weekends ever (it pulled in a whopping $155 million domestically), Hollywood proved that tentpole films don’t have to be released in the summer. But that doesn’t mean the warmer seasons aren’t still the chief sources for soon-tobe blockbusters — the usual mega-budget genre fare and effects extravaganzas. This spring and summer will see the releases of “The Avengers,” “Men in Black III,” “Prometheus,” “The Amazing Spider-Man,” and “The Dark Knight Rises,” to name a few. But what about the underdogs? For every Batman installment, there’s a modestly budgeted dramedy ready to court its own audience. The buzz-builders of 2011 included “Midnight in Paris” and “Bridesmaids.” Here’s what could follow suit in ’12:

High School (April 20) Never underestimate a

good stoner comedy. “High School” is the feature debut of filmmaker John Stalberg, Jr., and it features Adrien Brody as Psycho Ed, an extreme pothead who, in aiding a high school valedictorian, strives to intoxicate every student. Early buzz out of Sundance is overwhelmingly positive, and the film could prove to have crossover between critics and the key demographic of young men.

LOL (May 4) A remake of a ’08 French film, “LOL” promises to be an ultra-contemporary coming-of-age flick, with Miley Cyrus sowing her oats as a young girl coping with break-ups and mommy issues. Squarely targeted at the texting generation, the film also stars “Twilight” alum Ashley Greene, and it’s backed by new “Hunger Games” super-studio, Lionsgate. If nothing else, fans will want to catch Cyrus behaving badly, in the film that cut pot-smoking scenes after related video of the starlet circulated two years back.

The Dictator (May 11) The third film from cha-

meleonic provocateur Sacha Baron Cohen, “The Dictator” is reportedly inspired by Saddam Hussein’s novel “Zabibah and the King,” and features Baron Cohen as Admiral General Aladeen, a leader “heroically” saving his people from democracy. Directed by “Borat” and “Brüno” helmer Larry Charles, “The Dictator” offers another edition of its star’s gonzo, subversive brand, and its political nature may just push the right box office buttons.

Bachelorette (June 1) Following in the footsteps of “Bridesmaids” is “Bachelorette,” another wedding-themed femme comedy about three mean girls (Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher and Lizzy Caplan) taking on wedding-party duties for the engaged frenemy (Rebel Wilson) they tortured in high school. Written and directed by Leslye Headland and produced by Will Ferrell, the vicious indie is bound to thrive on word of mouth.

Bel Ami (June 8) It may seem like just another costume drama, but “Bel Ami,” based on Guy de Maupassant’s 1885 novel, casts superstar Robert Pattinson as the lustful lead character, ready to loosen the corsets of Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas, and “Pan Am” headturner Christina Ricci. Of his peers, Pattinson boasts the most promising post“Twilight” career, and in this, he may prove his mettle with period romance.

To Rome with Love (June 22) Woody Allen’s tour of Paris netted him an Original Screenplay Oscar and the biggest box-office haul of his career. The director’s follow-up will shift the focus to Rome, and likely rope in the same romantics who swooned over “Midnight in Paris.” Allen stars in the film, alongside Alec Baldwin, Ellen Page and “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” muse Penélope Cruz.

Magic Mike (June 29) Based on co-star Channing Tatum’s actual days as a working stripper, Steven Soderbergh’s fleshbaring comedy “Magic Mike” is a veritable man-candy parade, also featuring

Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer and “True Blood” hunk Joe Manganiello. On the heels of “21 Jump Street,” Tatum’s career is on a roll, and it’s hard to imagine a screaming fan shying away from this affair.

Ted (July 13) Ask a handful of pals to name their favorite TV shows, and odds are more than one will respond with, “Family Guy.” For those folks and more, funnyman and show creator Seth MacFarlane is serving up “Ted,” his first film as writer and director, in which he voices a live teddy bear who lives with Mark Wahlberg into adulthood. Costarring It Girl Mila Kunis, “Ted” also boasts “Family Guy” co-writers Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, and it could prove to be a major hit.

Tyler Perry’s The Marriage Counselor (July 27) Tyler Perry has proven himself a one-man moneymaking machine, scoring again and again with films that fill an in-demand niche. His 13th movie, “The Marriage Counselor,” is an adaptation of his 2008 play, and it involves a newlywed

counselor (Jurnee Smollett) who’s struggling in her own marriage. Co-stars include Vanessa Williams and Brandy Norwood, but the key draw of the film is Kim Kardashian, who makes her “serious” cinematic debut as the counselor’s co-worker. You heard right: Kardashian as a marriage counselor’s coworker.

Sparkle (Aug. 17) In any other year, this Motown-era, Supremesinspired musical drama would likely go the way of so many of its ilk — quickly forgotten but for its catchy soundtrack. But in addition to being the screen debut of popstar Jordin Sparks (who plays a dreamer striving to make it in a girl group with her sisters), “Sparkle” is the final film to feature Whitney Houston, who passed away just three months after shooting wrapped. Like “Michael Jackson’s This Is It,” “Sparkle” will double as a tribute to a lost legend, and if even half of Houston’s fan base feels compelled to see it, it’ll be a smash.

aster is sneaking up, so some cooks might need an extra recipe or two for all those leftovers from the Easter egg hunts. Carmella Marchisello’s Ouva Italiano, a traditional Italian egg dish, lends just the right amount of springy herbs and veggies to create a hearty, seasonal gravy. The resident of the 2400 block of South Carlisle Street suggests serving the sauce with crusty Italian bread for dipping. SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/food-and-drink/recipes.

Carmella’s Ouva Italiano INGREDIENTS:

2 to 3 garlic cloves, crushed and chopped 1 small yellow onion, thinly sliced Enough olive oil to coat the bottom of a frying pan 1 red bell pepper, sliced 2 cans of San Marzano whole tomatoes 1/4 cup of fresh Italian parsley, chopped 8 to 10 eggs Fresh or dried basil, to taste Fresh ground black pepper, to taste Kosher salt, to taste Red pepper flakes, optional

DIRECTIONS:

Using a cast-iron frying pan, sauté the garlic and onion in the oil. Wilt the onion, but do not brown the garlic. Add the red pepper, sauteing for a few minutes. Crush the tomatoes with your hands and add the remaining ingredients. Cook for about 15 minutes uncovered, over medium heat. Make sure the tomatoes are boiling slowly. Crack the eggs, one at a time, into the mixture. Season ason the eggs with the salt and nd pepper, then cover and simmer. Eggs may be cooked to taste.

Nina’s Trattoria By Phyllis Stein-Novack R e s ta u r a n t R e v i e w e r

P

uzzle people are a unique breed. Certain clues appear so often we can fill them in using a pen. For example: Four-letter word for one of Columbus’ ships or vocalist Simone. The answer: Nina. While shopping in the Italian Market a few months ago, I happened upon Nina’s Trattoria. I decided to review the restaurant on a warm, breezy evening. Since Nina’s is a BYOB, Sandy, Edward and I brought a bottle of New Zealand sauvignon blanc and Santa Julia organic Malbec. We settled in and discussed the menu. Oliver, who hails from Milan, answered our questions, opened our wine and brought us warm focaccia topped with a tad of olive oil and sea salt. Very good, indeed. The menu, which is based on the ingredients purchased in the Italian Market, changes daily, Our dinner began splendidly. Carciofi ($9) was a star of the evening. I received two lovely, midsize baby spring artichokes. Their stems were peeled for easy enjoyment, bathed in a sauce of olive oil, with sautéed roasted peppers, onions, spinach and garlic. Oh, be still my heart. I could have made a meal out of this hot antipasto that rated a 10. Next up were polpette ($7), a warm plate of meatballs prepared with dry, aged ground beef and served in tomato sauce. Since no pork was used here, I thought the meatballs, which were nicely seasoned, would be dry, but they were not.

prepare in a restaurant. Our appetizer portion of wild mushroom risotto ($8.50) wins the award. The mix of porchini, oyster and shiitake mushrooms added the right touch of headiness to this starter. The truffle oil sent it over the top. We marveled at how finely made this risotto turned out to be. The rice was al dente yet creamy and ran on the plate. We asked Oliver how the smoked bacon and bleu cheese salad ($12) was prepared. Our server advised the lettuces had crunch and were not limp, but alas, he did not understand when we asked him about mesclun. The salad was a huge disappointment. Ordinary mesclun was overdressed, the greens were quite limp — so much that we could not taste the bacon, Gorgonzola dolce, one of my top cheeses from Lombardy, walnuts and onion aioli. I took one bite. Our server removed it from the bill. The dinner went south from hence on, save for the hanger steak ($19), which was pretty good. The menu states it is accompanied by grilled vegetables. Oliver said they were asparagus and broccoli along with potatoes au gratin. The meat was marinated, tender and arrived rare. Broccoli rabe and cubes of roasted potatoes, certainly not au gratin, came with the platter. We agreed the entrée was nicely done. Sandy has never tasted gnocchi. Nina’s version ($15 as an entrée) prepared with ricotta cheese contained dreadful, hard as small rocks of granite swimming in too

much gravy that overpowered them. One of my favorite pasta dishes is spaghetti Amatriciana ($15 as an entrée). It is made with chopped tomatoes, onions, a sprinkling of hot pepper flakes and a hint of garlic and bacon. One bite told me the dish was a failure. Although the pasta was cooked al dente, there was too much slightly sweet gravy, made with canned tomatoes, which just ruined the delicacy of this famous dish. It was so peppery hot, I could not enjoy it. I asked the waiter if it could be made with chopped tomato as the recipe dictates. Alas, the replacement was not much better and the cost was removed from the bill. Nina’s Trattoria has the potential to be a

It’s spring cleaning week as Jews are busy stocking their kitchens with Passover-friendly foods. By Phyllis Stein-Novack Food Columnist

Gefilte Fish

Ingredients:

Enough Canola oil to coat the bottom of a large pot 1 large onion, sliced 2 carrots, peeled and cut into coins 4 cans of Rokeach gefilte fish, with the jellied juice Kosher salt and freshly ground lack pepper, to taste Enough cold water to cover the fish

Almond Cake

From “The Food of Spain” by Claudia Roden Ingredients: 1/2 pound of blanched whole almonds, ground in the food processor 6 large eggs, separated 1-1/4 cups confectioners’ sugar Grated zest of 1 orange Grated zest of 1 lemon 4 drops of almond extract Confectioners’ sugar for dusting.

Note from Phyllis: This is the best canned fish on the market. Rokeach Old Vienna Style is loaded with sugar so don’t buy it.

Note from Phyllis: I would use a vegetable spray instead of butter if you are serving this dessert after a meat meal.

Ingredients: 4 sheets of matzo 4 eggs, beaten Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste 2 tablespoons of Canola oil 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter Maple syrup and assorted preserves, for topping

Directions: Set the kettle on to boil. Break the matzo over a large mixing bowl. The pieces should measure about 1-inch each. Pour boiling water over the matzo making sure it is just enough to soften it. You don’t want to drown it. Squeeze out the water. Add the eggs, salt and pepper. Mix well. Heat the oil and butter over mediumhigh. Add the matzo mixture and allow to settle for about one minute in the skillet. Start to toss the matzo brei around as you would scrambled eggs. A rubber spatula works well here. Serves two. Note from Phyllis: We prefer our matzo brei gently scrambled. Recipe can be easily doubled. SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/food-anddrink/features.

Directions: Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high. Add the onion and sauté until translucent, for about eight minutes. Add remaining ingredients, bring the contents of the pot to a boil, lower the heat to simmer, cover and simmer gently for about 45 minutes. Cool at room temperature and place in covered containers. Serve with horseradish. Serves 16.

Directions: Using an electric mixer, beat the yolks with the sugar to a smooth pale cream. Beat in the zests and almond extract. Add the almonds and mix very well. With clean beaters, beat the egg whites in a large bowl until stiff peaks form. Fold them into the egg and almond mixture (the mixture is thick so you will need to turn it over quite a bit into the egg whites). Grease an 11-inch springform pan, preferably nonstick, with butter and dust with matzo meal. Pour in the cake batter and bake for 40 minutes, or until it feels firm to the touch. Let cool before turning out. Dust with the sugar. Serves 10.

Matzo Brei

SOUTh PhILLY REVIEW I march 29, 2012

assover, the eight-day festival of freedom, begins at sundown April 6. Jews will sit down to a ritual service and meal called a Seder (Hebrew for order) and also celebrate Shabbat. No challah tonight. We will have to make do with matzo. Through the years, I have shared recipes for my matzo ball soup, chopped liver, roast capon, vegetables, kugels and all sorts of Passover sweets including the famous flourless chocolate cake. This year I offer a mishmash of recipes for the Seder, weekday dinner or Sunday brunch. All ingredients which contain leavening are banished from the house. Getting the house ready for Passover is no easy feat. Did you know that the Jews invented spring cleaning? In the run up to Pesach, the kitchen, pantry, cupboards, refrigerator and freezer are thoroughly cleaned and stocked with Passover foods. Items are donated to food banks and soup kitchens. When I was a girl, my mother, my sister and I went shopping for new dresses, shoes and spring coats, which have since disappeared like the T-Rex. My grandparents drove us to Vineland, N.J., where we purchased crates and crates and crates of eggs for our extended family. Passover also could be called the festival of eggs since they turn up in doz-

ens of recipes. I’ve conducted a taste test of matzo and found Yehuda, made in Israel, is the finest you can buy. It’s crisp and works best in Matzo Brei, (fried matzo), which is Edward’s specialty. I wish you all a sweet and healthy Passover.

It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone, for a part of us went with you the day God called you home! Your precious memory is our keepsake, with which we’ll never part.

We’ve spent everyday of the last 20 years with each other, on March 22nd, we should’ve celebrated our 15th, wedding anniversary. I don’t know what the future has stored The future always included us. I don’t know me without you. The only thing I know right now, is the pain isn’t any less, it’s worse! As time goes by, I miss you more! I miss the way we’d still stay up all night talking, and I’d say I love you, you’d say you love me more, we’d go back n forth then laugh. I miss just laying there on your chest and you’d hold me. And sleeping wrapped in each others arms. I miss you and me, us and we and how it used to be. My one regret is I should’ve moved when you wanted us to far from “Those people” who Instead of helping me help you, Opted for being selfish, With no consideration for Your feelings. I’ll never forget the look on your face the hurt in your voice knowing you were betrayed! At least you knew you were a better Husband and father. You were involved in everything our kids did. You taugh them lots of things they’ll always remember. You stuck by me, always put me first, no matter what. You sacrificed your own life, I will never let you go you’ll always be the best husband and Dad there ever could be

a’Quan Coaxum scored two points Friday night, but his block of a final-second three-point shot will matter much more in the annals of Ss. Neumann-Goretti High School, 1736 S. 10th St., than his lone bucket. The senior guard and his East Passyunk Crossing teammates claimed their third consecutive PIAA Class AAA state title, defeating Allegheny County’s Montour High School 48-45 at Penn State University’s Bryce Jordan Center. The narrow victory capped another tremendous campaign for coach Carl Arrigale’s ballers, who also notched their fourth straight Catholic League crown Feb. 27 and their fourth straight District 12 Class AAA championship March 2. A rematch of last year’s title tussle, the game forced the Saints to swap their fast-paced style for a half-court mentality. Well-versed in the latter, they secured their 28th victory from 31 contests thanks to timely elevation from Coaxum. “I was trying to be aggressive,” the resident of Fifth Street and Washington Avenue said of aiming to keep District 12’s top seed from needing overtime to top District 7’s fourth seed. “The tip of my finger got the ball to give us the game.” A 6-foot-2 speedster whom Arrigale, of the 2900 block of South 15th Street, often used to supply stubborn defense, Coaxum transferred to Neumann-Goretti after the 2010 closing of Cardinal Dougherty. As the sixth man, he looked for moments to be a dagger and took a knife to the Spartans’ dreams at the most opportune time.

An East Passyunk Crossing school scored its third-straight state boys’ basketball crown.

Early on, though, it looked as if he and the local representatives would end up sliced. The Saints had blasted their four tournament foes by an average of more than 32 points, but Montour, a 24-4 club, looked to prevent its opponents from becoming the first hoopsters to claim at least three straight titles since Hermitage’s Kennedy Christian scored four in a row from 1998 through 2001. The Spartans led 15-7 after the first quarter, yet the Saints’ resolve remained intact. “We didn’t play Neumann-Goretti ball in the beginning; we played Montour ball,” junior forward and second-leading scorer John Davis said. A resident of Fourth Street and Washington Avenue, Davis grew up trading shots with Coaxum at Sacks Playground, 400 Washington Ave. Influential to each other as children, the teenagers sought to feed off each other yet again to mount a comeback. Perfect disciples of their sport’s team concept, they deferred to senior guard Billy Shank and junior guard Hanif Sutton, whose shooting and defending keyed an impressive second frame in which the Saints outscored Montour 14-4 to conclude the first half with a 21-19 edge. “Neumann-Goretti has been a winning program for years,” West Philadelphia’s Sutton said. “In the second half, we wanted to make the action more up-tempo.” ACCUSTOMED TO REGISTERING scores at least in the sixties, Sutton’s unit realized in the

third quarter that tallying another victory would mean more than achieving an impressive point total. Content to protect the ball and to look for consistent stops, Montour never strayed from calling on a patient plan. “We knew they would be aggressive,” Arrigale said. “Nobody makes it to a state final without a solid foundation.” The teams played to a 12-12 tie in the third, leaving Coaxum, Shank, fellow senior Derrick Stewart and the others eight minutes from another glorious celebration. “Winning can fool you,” Arrigale said. “It can lull people into a false sense of who they are. We needed to make a few in-season changes, so having to adjust in the final didn’t intimidate us.” Already a big-game performer, sophomore guard and leading scorer Ja’Quan Newton, whose waning-seconds free throws gave the Saints a 59-57 overtime win against St. Joe’s Prep for the Catholic League title, played true to form Friday. The Southwest Philadelphian tallied 17 points to pace the Saints, with seven coming in the final quarter. Nailing the back end of a double-bonus with 58 seconds left, Newton put his boys up 47-41. Five failed free throws from six attempts kept them from strengthening their lead. The Saints ended up missing 16 of their 30 heaves, with Newton and Stewart, a fellow First-Team All-Catholic pick along with Davis, bricking 10 between them. Stewart, set

to join i brother b h Danny D at Rider Rid University, U i i collected 11 rebounds and five of the team’s eight blocks. Though the Upper Darby star rejected the majority of the shots, Coaxum thwarted the most important. Montour guard Kevin Scuilli had drained four three-pointers, so he made for a sensible pick to try to tie the affair. “Anything to help the team,” Coaxum said of keeping the guard one short of a handful. Davis, with 11 points, and Fishtown’s Shank, a Second-Team All-Catholic, with 10, also scored in double digits. Their work complete, the Saints gathered for what for them has become as standard as brushing their teeth – a trophy presentation. “Teams go through struggles during the year,” Arrigale, who cited defense as the chief early-season thorn, said. “We made sure we had our best going for us at the end.” He noted his boys’ resolute attitude proved the rewards of his system. Anyone who is willing to bust his rear will have a chance to make the school’s trophy case even more crowded. “New players come along and get opportunities,” Arrigale said. “That’s part of the beauty of high school basketball.” Davis, Sutton and Newton will lead next season’s troops, who will take a 70-game Catholic League winning streak into Arrigale’s 15th year. “The target is always on our back,” Davis said. “If we stay humble and hungry, we’ll be fine.” SPR
