iving in South Philadelphia prevents residents from ever feeling the direct impact of an earthquake. Though tremors may never trouble their homes, they can hurt their hearts, building sadness for the affected population. Domenic Nigro and Lisa Bruemmer have looked beyond despondency, using their businesses to acquire aid for the victims of last month’s Tohoku earthquake and tsunami. Their backgrounds and occupations differ greatly, but Nigro and Bruemmer See JAPAN RELIEF page 10

Flavors preview event at Urban Jungle, 1526-30 E. Passyunk Ave. This year’s main celebration, set for 1 to 5 p.m. April 30, will rely heavily on numerous firsttime participants. Flavors, which resumed last year following 2009’s cancellation, lets the avenue’s diverse eateries delight patrons’ palates with top dishes and potables. It wards off any inclement weather with a sprawling tent and provides immediate satiety to

stomachs and gobs of potential business to the vendors. A consummate pursuer of novelty for her stretch, Gilinger will welcome the talents of recently opened locations and will look to maximize the day with two post-Flavors events.

Carnival of confusion To the Editor: The Southeast Youth Athletic Association [at Seventh and Bigler streets] recreates a lot of the children in the community and we rely on our annual carnival for funding certain portions of the league. Through the years, we have had to hurdle numerous obstacles regarding this fundraiser. Most recently, the neighbors are being fed false information regarding our youth group and carnival. We need the funding from this carnival to upkeep the facility and keep it safe for the children to play. For example, we purchased a new concession trailer, equipment, bleachers, fences and picnic tables; have redone the fields; and paid insurance and a $10,000-a-year electric bill from the proceeds of this event. These are just a few things we have done over the years, which was all funded by the carnival. One uninformed area resident distributed fliers attacking the carnival, SEYAA and the [Delaware River Port Authority] for allowing us to have it there, as well as myself as the person in charge of the youth group. Most of the residents of the homes where this flier was put actually called me to state they couldn’t believe that my name and cell phone number was on this as they know that I try to help the community. Personally, I don’t care about what the flier says because the community knows that I am a volunteer and work with the kids on a yearly basis. A representative from the DRPA and myself have discussed the flier and talked to everyone that phoned us regarding this issue. Everything went friendly and we informed them of things they did not know. We want to make the community aware of why this carnival is needed. We understand that people have complaints mostly about parking, noise and traffic. On the other hand, we are, and have been, looking to amicably find a resolution to fund the complex and maybe move the carnival to a location away from the community that would be safe and easily accessible by transportation. We have no objection to this nor does the carnival proprietor, but we have not come up with a location and need help working on this. I also informed the callers how SEYAA would have no problem with

needing funds if we were part of the Sports Complex Special Services District, which was was formed in 2002 and is funded with $1 million by Comcast-Spectacor, the Phillies and Eagles. We were told that we are not able to receive any funding because the stadium district boundaries are based on when Veterans Stadium was on Broad Street. Ironically, those boundaries run from Seventh to 20th streets below Oregon Avenue, but not where SEYAA is. My argument is the new location of Citizen’s Bank Park is so close the lights illuminate our parking lot and we can see the spectators sitting in their seats. The board members say they cannot change the boundaries or include us because the original boundaries are difficult to change. There are seven schools and another youth organization that receive funding from the the district. I think this is wonderful. However, we would like to be included since we have more than 2,500 youth participating year-round in sporting activities. We were told if we were on the opposite side of Seventh Street we would be included. This is just 15 feet from our front gate. No one knows that SEYAA runs on its own. It is not a Department of Recreation facility and must pay all its own utilities. The people who work at SEYAA are all volunteers. No one gets paid. It is just terrible that you can get one person in a community to stir things up and put false information out there to try and get followers. We are all on the same side. We should be working together to keep the community safe, fun and give these kids a place to play. Joann McAfee SEYAA Treasurer South Philadelphia

Fight for what is right To the Editor: We Americans are having problems in our cities, states and country because the individuals we have been voting into office believe it is an opportunity to enrich themselves with the money they collect from us. That is not the purpose of taxes or govern-

ment. They believe that winning an office is hitting the jackpot. We should not vote liars and thieves into office nor those who think it is all right for others to be liars and thieves. We should not vote for anyone because of their political party or race or those who wants to do things for us with other people’s money. Taxes are to finance the basic and necessary functions of government. Taxes are not for individuals to buy our votes by promising us something using taxpayers’ money. Taxes are not for ideas and schemes to advance a person in office by bribing citizens, businesses or organizations dealing in corruption. We should not vote for anyone who will not enforce our laws of punishment against criminals to the point where it is effective and the criminals stop committing crimes. We should not vote for anyone who will not eliminate unnecessary spending or who wastes time and money on silly schemes misusing the power of office by telling us what we can’t eat and what light bulbs we can’t use. We should not vote for anyone who taxes businesses and employers unfairly and chases them out of the city depriving citizens of jobs and stable neighborhoods. We should not vote for anyone who believes schools are doing a good job and more money will make them better or who will not support school vouchers for public, private and parochial schools. Parents have the right to choose the best school they can afford for their children and should not be forced by politicians to send their children to schools that waste their potential; teach them immorality and atheism; malign their country and American heritage; and leave them ignorant in the English language and mathematics while subjecting them to anti-American socialist propaganda and a dangerous environment. It’s your city, your state and your country. You have to fight for what is right and not be bullied into passivity by corrupt politicians, unions and media.

April 11 ot long after kicking off his twohour-10 minute ‘Songbook’ show at the Keswick Theater Sunday night, Chris Cornell expressed appreciation for the chance to play such nice little venues such as the Glenside theater. Part of the appeal of catching the vocal giant at the Keswick is the relative intimacy of the venue. The last time I caught Cornell in such a small space was 20 years ago when his band Soundgarden played a record release party at a loft in lower Manhattan. It’s hardly a surprise the Keswick show and Cornell’s entire six-week tour sold out

in no time. Rock Gods, who are as remarkably consistent as Cornell seldom play small theaters. What Cornell, who will perform Friday at the Borgata, didn’t play was almost as interesting as what he chose. After leaving the Keswick, you can’t help but think about the myriad of songs of his that didn’t make the set list. Cornell’s accomplishments whether as the leader of Soundgarden, the focal point of Audioslave, the booming voice behind Temple of The Dog or as an underheralded solo artist, are considerable. Cornell was simply flanked by six guitars — four acoustic, two electric — while perched on a stool. Sure, Cornell was compelling delivering such Soundgarden staples such as “Fell On Black Days” and “Like a Suicide” and Audioslave’s “Be Yourself.” His unparalleled vocal range was on display during Temple of the Dog’s “Say Hello to Heaven. ...” SPR

n the radar of the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals for a few months, a Grays Ferry’s dog battleground was disassembled Sunday night. “Our undercover investigative team had been investigating this for many months — greater than six months,” PSPCA spokeswoman Wendy A. Marano said. “Some of the individuals were Henry Beard known to us. We just have to have a full body of evidence to charge these people with charges that would stick.” The society’s officers had been conducting surveillance and learned Henry Beard, 42, of the Northeast, would allegedly be conducting a dog battle at an unknown location, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. Officers followed him and others to a rowhome on the 2600 block of Gerritt Street at 8:05 p.m. Upon hearing what was believed to be the sound of dogs engaged in an organized fight, police knocked on the front door. After someone inside opened the door, officers entered with a warrant to find an active fight between two pit bulls in the second floor, front bedroom, Tolliver said. With Vincert Floyd blood streaked across the walls, the room was allegedly set up as a ring with apparatus such as break sticks to separate the dogs in the midst of a fight, a weight scale to gauge a dog’s strength and a treadmill. After officers videotaped part of the fight for evidence, they rescued the two canines, who were bleeding from multiple bite wounds. At least one of the dogs is expected to need surgery. Eight dogs were found inside the home including two adults and two puppies in the dwelling along with another adult in the backyard and one locked in a Chevy Tahoe parked outside the home, Tolliver said. Some of the dogs were pit bulls and some were mixed breeds, Marano said.

Ages and sexes of the canines varied. “Not all the dogs were active fighters,” she said. “They were part of the ring but had not gotten to that stage especially the puppies.” Thirteen men were arrested inside the home including Vincent Floyd, 22, of the 3000 block of Mifflin Street, and DanDaniel iel Parmegiani, 33, of Parmegiani the 1500 block of South Newkirk Street. Beard also was arrested when officers found him allegedly hiding in the backyard with a jacket over his head. All 14 men were charged with cruelty to animals and criminal conspiracy. Three other raids in North Philly resulted from information gained from the Grays Ferry arrestees. Among the four properties, 26 dogs were recovered along with weapons, narcotics and a large sum of money at one of the North Philly spots. All the dogs are now in protective custody, but will not be available for adoption until after evaluation and the conclusion of the case, Marano said. “This was a major dog-fighting operation in the city,” the society’s CEO Susan Cosby said in a statement. “Our officers have been working diligently to invest the alleged ring, bring those involved to justice, and rescue the animals and potentially save many more dogs from this senseless and vicious crime.”

Double trouble A teenage duo responsible for stabbing a man Monday evening may also have been involved in shooting another man less than three hours later. The men approached a 19-year-old on the 2400 block of South Mole Street at 6 p.m., Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. One teen known as “Derick” started a scuffle with the victim while another possibly named “Sonny” stabbed him in the right side of his chest. The victim was transported to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and treated for a collapsed lung and lacerated liver, Tolliver said.

Police Report At 8:55 p.m., police arrived at the scene of a shooting on the 1300 block of South Colorado Street to find a blood trail and ballistics evidence, Tolliver said. The victim, who was shot once in the neck, was already enroute to Methodist Hospital, Tolliver said. Once stabilized, he was transported to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in critical but stable condition. Police were not able to interview him due to treatment. The teens were described as white and age 19. “Derick” was wearing a red T-shirt with white lettering and black shorts with white stripes on the side while the other was 6 foot and wearing a purple shirt, dark pants and glasses. They are believed to have been traveling in an older model dark-colored Jaguar sedan with a New Jersey license plate. Police did not have a motive for either crime as of press time. To report information, call South Detectives’ tip line at 215-685-1635 or visit www.phillypolice.com/forms.

Arrested again

An elderly man was pushed to the ground and robbed subway Friday. A 61-year-old was walking from the Tasker-Morris station on the Broad Street Line when two men pulled him down at 9:05 p.m. on the 1500 block of Morris

A man was held up at gunpoint and robbed of hundreds in Newbold. A 29-year-old heard someone behind him yell, “give me your cell phone and get on the ground” at 10:20 p.m. April 6 and was greeted with a black, semi-automatic handgun, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. He handed the armed man his cell and headphones. Another man then began rummaging through his pockets to retrieve his credit card, identification and other items totaling $300 with the phone. Before fleeing, the armed man demanded his victim’s eyes remain down and that he lay on the ground. The offenders fled south on 15th and west on Tasker Street. The gunman was described as black with a dark complexion, age 19, 5-foot-11, thin, with no facial hair and a thin nose and wearing a black hoody, black pants and black canvas sneakers with white soles. His accomplice was described as black with a medium complexion, age 19, 5-foot-8, 230 pounds, with light facial hair and wearing a gray Gap hoody and khaki pants. To report information, call South Detectives’ tip line at 215-685-1635 or visit www.phillypolice.com/forms.

Knockdown robbery

Grounded and robbed

South Philly Rates High with Valley Green Bank—

SOUTh PHILLY REVIEW I APRIL 14, 2011

An East Passyunk man, who was sentenced for a mugging two weeks ago, was allegedly caught robbing a bank a block from his home last week. Michael Beasley, 40, of the 1300 block of East Passyunk Avenue, was convicted of robbery for an Oct. 24 purse snatching, and sentenced to three to 23 months in jail and a year of probation March 28, according to court records. At 1:18 p.m. April 7, he supposedly entered Wachovia Bank, 1400 E. Passyunk Ave., and handed a teller a demand note with “This is a robbery. Fill the envelope with cash. No funny business,” scribbled on it, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The employee obliged providing $245 to Beasley, who then is believed to have left the bank, Tolliver said. However, a bank manager confronted the man and ordered him back inside the business, Tolliver said. Beasley allegedly agreed and the manager locked the doors until police arrived. Beasley was charged with robbery theft, receiving stolen property and related offenses.

Street and yanked his black leather wallet containing $300, identification and a credit card from the right, back pocket of his pants, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. He briefly passed out and did not see which way they ran. He also had a small cut under his chin and back pain, but did not seek medical treatment. The pair was described as black, in their 20s and 6 foot. One was thin, clean-shaven and wearing a red jacket.

Fight for first

Three area residents will face a Port Richmond dweller for the soon-tobe-vacated 1st District Council seat.

H

eld by Passyunk Square’s Frank DiCicco since 1995, the position for City Council’s 1st District, which spans most of the eastern half of South Philly up through other sections of the city along the Vernon Anastasio Delaware River, has become an open race among four Democratic contenders in the May 17 primary. Vernon Anastasio is a lifetime Bella Vista resident. He founded and currently serves as the president of the Bella Vista United Civic Association. Growing up at Ninth and Christian streets with his brother, Anthony, and sister, Nicole, his parents, Thomas and Anne, owned Anastasio Produce in the Italian Market. He now resides in the same area with his wife Leslie and their two children, Jacob, 7, and Elizabeth, 5. The graduate of St. John Neumann High School, formerly at 2600 Moore St., attended La Salle University and Emerson College where he received a bachelor’s and master’s, respectively in communications. The 41-year-old’s resume includes working as a legislative aide to former 1st District Councilman Joseph Vignola and administrator for the Philadelphia Fair Housing Commission. The Widener University School of Law alum now has his own practice — The Anastasio Law Firm, 2208 South St. — which focuses on real estate issues and helps residents avoid foreclosure.

eorgia’s Flowers Foods purchased Tasty Baking Co., a 97-year-old Philadelphia staple, Monday, orchestrating a deal that will total more than $165 million. A baked goods manufacturer, Flowers bought the struggling enterprise for $4 a share. Tasty’s outstanding 8.6 million shares bring the acquisition’s tag to $34.4 million, with more than $131 million in debt accounting for the transaction’s sum. The agreement will make Tasty part of its partner’s direct-store-delivery business and extend its long-lauded line of products to the Southeast and Southwest parts of the country. The sale, which should close sometime during the year’s second quarter, will likely not mean any reduction in Tasty’s 740-employee workforce or 413-member roster of independent sales distributors, Flowers’ chairman and CEO George Deese said in a press release. It also will keep open Tasty’s plants in Chester County and the 11-month-old facility at 3 Crescent Dr. in The Philadelphia Navy Yard. “This merger with Flowers will create

value for Tasty’s shareholders, employees and the Philadelphia community,” Tasty’s CEO Charles P. Pizzi said in a news release. “We believe the combination of Tasty with Flowers will create a company with long-term advantages for our employees, customers, suppliers, independent sales distributors and other constituents.” - Joseph Myers

FLAVORS

continued from page 1 ing,” Nevila Brami, owner of Mondial Café, 1941 E. Passyunk Ave., said of the preview. The Northeast Philadelphia resident and native of Albania opened her business Dec. 4, bringing her fascination with healthy food to the area. For the 90-minute preview, she offered stuffed eggplant and tzatziki, an appetizer composed of strained yoghurt mixed with cucumbers, garlic, olive oil, pepper, lemon juice and parsley, with a pita. “We want to bring some European style,” she said of her presence on the Avenue. That style will make for a nice addition to the main event, which will run between Morris and Dickinson streets. “Building on the success of last year’s Flavors, we will have more food, more drinks and a bigger tent this year,” Gilinger said. Some of that food will come from Joseph Massara and Robert Reilly, co-owners of Salt & Pepper, 1623 E. Passyunk Ave. Formerly located in Bella Vista, the facility opened the week before Christmas. “We’ll do anything to support the neighborhood and the businesses,” Massara,

who claimed to live “two steps away,” said of joining Flavors. At the preview, the proprietors offered a roasted beef and pineapple salad with baby arugula and goat cheese and rosemary onion soup with croissants, kalamata olives and mascarpone cheese. “We didn’t want to get left out,” Reilly, of 13th Street and Oregon Avenue, said of his first assignment at Flavors. “We respect all the restaurants.” Jesse Spalletta, owner of 2-month-old Plenty, 1710 E. Passyunk Ave., sounded equally proud. “I wanted to open a place near my home,” the resident of 13th and Federal streets said. She enthusiastically accepted a call from Gilinger to participate in Flavors, seeing her avenue mate as a key figure in helping her spot to thrive. To Monday’s assembly, she presented a tasso ham panini and macaroni and cheese. Other victuals await those who attend the grand event, furthering her desire to offer “comfort food with a new twist,” grub coming mostly from local farmers. Already the co-owner of one successful business, Green Eggs Café, 1306 Dickinson St., Stephen Slaughter hopes to score plaudits with libations from his yet-toopen venture Stateside, which should start

its mission to focus on everything American within three months. The Marconi resident offered gravy and biscuits from Green Eggs. “We saw a window, a niche that wasn’t being take care of — cuisine, style and food,” Slaughter said of adding his talents to the Avenue. “We saw it as a dual thing,” he added of his Flavors involvement. “We get our name out there and help out the neighborhood.” GILINGER PRIDES HERSELF on performing the second task, and April 30 will meld tried and true concepts with novel ideas. The former group includes a DJ at the Tasker Street Fountain and live music. A Crafty Balboa April Showers craft show featuring 45 crafters also will cause people to congregate at the fountain. The latter’s most impressive aspect may be a one-hour VIP event, limited to 300 guests and featuring specialty food items and cocktails, that commences at noon. Its $50 cost is $20 more than the general admission price, although $25 tickets are available before April 25. “Because we know the fun shouldn’t end when the food tent closes, we have added two after-Flavors events,” Gilinger said. The first, a Flavors Fashion Crawl from

J

oseph “Archie” Devine, 54, graduated from Bishop Neumann High School in 1975. On May 21, he will be honored by his alma mater for the highest level of career achievement. “It’s an honor from where I graduated from. Past recipients have done a lot with their careers and public service. This is validation of my upbringing, through my years at Neumann. It was the foundation of what helped develop me and who I am,” Devine, a native of Second and Jackson streets, said. Devine will be honored alongside Drexel University Dean of the College of Nursing and Health Professionals Gloria Donnelly, a West Passyunk native, at the Millay Club’s annual Pinnacle Award Gala Dinner taking place at Center City’s Hyatt at The Bellevue. “I am honored because I’ve been in health care my whole career. My fellow award winner is the dean of nursing at Drexel. I work with a lot of nurses and my executive nursing team does nothing but rave about her. I am honored to be recogcontinued on page 16

continued from page 14 nized alongside her,” Devine said. The Millay Club, which is the 25,000-member alumni association of Southeast Catholic, Bishop Neumann, St. John Neumann and Neumann-Goretti high schools, sponsors the award gala to recognize former students who have excelled professionally while also contributing to their communities. Devine, who is currently senior vice president of administration and external relations for the South Jersey-based Kennedy Health System, will join the long list of past honorees. “They contacted me in the fall and told me someone was going to nominate me. … They came out and met me in the beginning of December and asked if I would accept the honor,” Devine, who resides in Washington Township, N.J., said. “Last year, Bill Bergman [received the award]. We grew up in the same neighborhood. … He came with someone else and asked if I would accept the honor.” Devine is being honored for his more than 30 years as a health care professional, working on the business side to make sure operations run smoothly and health care

providers can perform at their best. Additionally, Devine has made it his life’s work to give back to his community, having held volunteer positions on public service councils, as well as taking an active role in charity organizations such as the March for Babies and South Jersey Heart Walk. “I find it rewarding first of all. But as a responsible executive, one of my responsibilities is to give back to my community. Being a good citizen and neighbor, I learned it from my dad, who passed about 11 years ago.” Devine said of his dad Joe Devine. “As a kid, I’d come home and he’d be involved with so many things. I had that as a role model. “As I got further professionally, I got involved in more things. What you sow, you reap and if you give a lot back, you get a lot back.” DEVINE RECEIVED A bachelor’s in accounting and management from La Salle University and an master’s in business administration from St. Joseph’s University. He spent a couple years toiling as a public accountant before taking his first health care job at Pennsylvania Hospital in ’81. “For some reason, something attracted me to [health care],” Devine said. “God always has a plan for you and I am kind

of in the direction his plan is. For some reason I was always attracted to being in hospitals. It was a career passion.” Working his “small administration job” into a managerial role five years later, Kennedy recruited Devine to build an audit department for the growing Jersey organization in ’86. “I oversee our Washington Township campus, which is the biggest of the 23 hospitals,” Devine, who relocated with wife, Dina, a ’75 Goretti grad, to Jersey in order to live where he worked, said. “I work on strategic issues and government relations activities that tie in to the organization. I am the external face of Kennedy.” It was important to Devine, who always played an active community role, to raise daughters Makenzie, 24, and Olivia, 21, in the community he was serving. “I’ve been able to help the community in a lot of ways I wasn’t able to do [before]. I work in the town I live,” Devine said. “The most rewarding aspect of my job is the people I work with and for. “People in health care care about people and I’m able to work around them. I’m not a doctor, but if I can help them process and do things, I’m able to help them do [their job]. It’s all about people.” Devine has continued to strive for pro-

fessional excellence and the Pinnacle recognition comes on the tail of a distinction from his employer, given to someone who has made a significant impact on the Kennedy business and the South Jersey community. Accepting the Kennedy Beacon award in February made Devine only the second executive to receive the award, the first being the company’s CEO and founder. “I’ve gotten a couple things over the years, but nothing that big,” Devine said. As he readies family and friends for the upcoming honor from the Millay Club, the executive has taken time to reflect on a fulfilling career that began at 2600 Moore St. “You never forget where you came from. You could be the most successful person in the world, but that happened because of what developed you and the friendships and people around,” Devine said. “Your opportunity to be successful is because of the support system. “The guys we grew up with, we were always pushing one another to be successful. … How they were as people, that’s the thing that made Neumann special, and guys being friendly. And I think that’s what’s important.” SPR Comment at www.southphillyreview.com/news/ lifestyles.

Nightfall in America

A

After Abraham Lincoln’s post-Civil War assassination, young attorney Frederick Aiken (James McAvoy) must defend the woman charged with conspiracy.

By R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer

N

ever has the unpopular lawyer bit been less involving than it is in “The Conspirator,” a courtroom drama that’s going to net a lot of good ink simply because it’s a period piece directed by Robert Redford. But if we’re being honest, Redford has never been all that stellar of a filmmaker, despite the grand receptions of professional peaks like “Quiz Show” and “Ordinary People.” In his latest, an unearthing of littleknown facts about Lincoln-assassination co-conspirator Mary Surratt, he fails to wrangle or subdue a highly problematic script, which squanders priceless historic material and belabors the values of “truth, justice and the American way” with the grating pretense of Sarah Palin. The first feature to be made by the American Film Co., a pet project of Chicago Cubs owner Joe Ricketts that’s bent on the production of patriotic epics, “The Conspirator” strives to be a provocative indictment of governmental wrongdoing, but winds up the kind of preachy, banal fluff that legions of junior high students dread. An early trial scene with a U.S. senator (Tom Wilkinson) who mentors Surratt’s reluctant defense attorney, Frederick Aiken (James McAvoy), is bursting with a chorus of trite hymns to Uncle Sam, and what follows is a listless, toothless retread of the travails of Atticus Finch, where the unfairly accused, instead of being black, merely wears it. (Call it, “To Kill a Dodo Bird.”) The film is not without fine acting (Robin Wright is excellent as the stalwart, if motivationally inconsistent, Surratt), but the casting is wildly hit-and-miss, from the appropriate (Kevin Kline as Lincoln’s war secretary) to the obvious (Danny Huston

as a despicable prosecutor) to the insane (Justin Long as a piano-playing Civil War vet). Screenwriter James Solomon swings and misses in his attempt to score any authentic relationships among these characters, and the same goes for his aims at urgency and fascination. Solomon toiled away at his script for a whopping 18 years, which makes the final verdict on “The Conspirator” all the more painful: This baby needed a lot more conspiring.

Recommended Rental Rabbit Hole PG-13 Available Tuesday Nicole Kidman earned a deserving Oscar nod for her poignant work as a grieving mother in this emotionally frank and dramatically scalding adaptation of David Lindsay-Abaire’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play.

‘Conspirator’needs better plan

SOUTh PHILLY REVIEW I APRIL 14, 2011

re you old enough to remember when it was “morning in America?” In those halcyon days, Ronald Reagan was as much pitchman as president. He made a smiley face the symbol of the Republican Party. Those dour bookkeepers of the Grand Old Party were forced to toss away their green eyeshades and put on party hats. With a genial smile, Reagan made Americans feel good. He wasn’t the smartest leader, but he could sense that after the doom and gloom of the Carter Years, America needed a pep talk. When did the Republican Party stop believing in this country? When did morning end in America? Just take a look at the vision of their super whiz-kid, U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, the 41-year-old Wisconsin Republican since 1999. Last week he unveiled his party’s proposed 2012-and-beyond budget — one that is supposed to set our country on the course to fiscal sanity. Put aside the fact many financial analysts think his balancing act is all smoke and mirrors. What I find compelling is how dark the Republicans believe the future is for America. Understand that Republicans have always wanted to get rid of Medicare. Even Reagan became Gloomy Gus when he talked about it warning Medicare was “socialized medicine” and would cost Americans their freedom. The problem for the Republicans has been that older Americans love Medicare. Even Tea Party nuts carry signs, “Don’t Touch My Medicare.” How could Republicans curry favor with voters and still get rid of Medicare? For years they have lain in wait for an opportunity, and with the deficit getting the public’s attention, they are ready to seize the moment. For the Republicans, the budget deficit is not so much a danger, but an opportunity. The deficit provides a convenient cover for dismantling Medicare. Ryan proposes to replace Medicare with a voucher system, which is akin to Bush’s attempt to privatize Social Security by turning it into a 401(k). After the Wall Street disaster, Republicans stopped talking about privatization because they couldn’t convince the average American to trust Wall Street with their nest egg. The same marketplace vagaries should make seniors shopping for medical care with a voucher wary. If you love your health insurance company with all the deductibles, co-pays,

rising premiums and denial of claims, just imagine how much you’ll love it when you’re 80 and living under Ryan’s plan. His solution gives political cynicism a bad name since anyone 55 or older would be exempt. Guess who is behind his plan? The private health insurance lobby. Wonder how Ryan likely came up with the exemption? Hint: Which age group has the highest percentage of voters on Election Day? Bingo. If you, like me, fall into that category, your Medicare will remain the same. Uncle Nunzi was ready to storm Washington until he heard he would be exempt. When Uncle heard the good news, he got back on the couch and resumed watching wrestling. If you, like Uncle Nunzi, were calmed by this news, please think again if you love the younger folks in your family. Ryan Care will apply to your kids and grandkids, who will have the privilege of paying through the nose to keep you covered under the old system, but will not have your Medicare when they become seniors. I thought it was cynical when Republicans pitted private sector workers against their public sector brethren, but they have breathlessly reached new heights. In effect, they are now pitting seniors against their own kids and grandkids. The Republicans are wagering if replacing Medicare with a voucher system doesn’t affect you, then you won’t give a damn about it affecting anyone else. They are gambling you are the same person who doesn’t feel he should pay school taxes because he no longer has kids in the education system. In short, Ryan is betting his political career and the future of the Republican Party on your selfishness. Here is the kicker. Most non-partisan financial experts say Ryan’s plan does not have a method of reducing medical care costs, and still leaves a third of Americans without medical insurance. Guess what does? The Affordable Care Act, scorned by Republicans as “Obamacare.” The act, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, will cut medical costs by $210 billion and increase coverage from 83 to 95 percent of Americans. The Republicans want to repeal it. The Ryan plan aims to cut costs by cutting your coverage or not including you as covered. And it sells itself to America by exempting those who would yell the most if affected. Republicans often pay homage to Reagan, but they have changed his message from all things are possible in America to we can’t afford it in America. Their vision is one where the middle class and the poor are exposed to the cruelties of the marketplace without a safety net. In Ryan’s America, it is no longer morning and nightfall is descending quickly. SPR

Morning Glory Diner By Phyllis Stein-Novack R e s ta u r a n t R e v i e w e r

I

am a patient woman, but I do not like it when someone is rude or I am told there will be a one-hour wait for brunch. To this day, I still have not been to Honey’s Sit ’N Eat in Northern Liberties. We are always told there will be a long wait. The same held true on a number of occasions at Morning Glory Diner, 10th and Fitzwater streets. We took a chance and finally Edward, Sandy and I enjoyed brunch there. We only waited in the lovely sunshine for about 20 minutes. I’m glad we did. While we waited for our table, a man sitting next to me looked familiar. He is a regular and told me the frittata and biscuits are delicious. As it turned out, I met Jason and his adorable sheltie Shelby Lynn last year while shopping. We made plans to meet. Morning Glory is a cash-only breakfast, brunch and lunch spot that gained a loyal following as soon as it opened its doors. There’s a small counter where you can watch the short order cooks work their magic. There’s nothing better than a woman or man who can fry eggs, keep the bacon crisp and turn out dishes one after another. Rich dark coffee ($2.50) was served steaming hot in metal cups. Tables were set with a bowl of soft butter pats and a metal container filled with homemade jam. Even the ketchup was homemade. It arrived in a wine bottle, which I thought was kind of cute.

I ordered scrambled eggs with bacon, grits and the anticipated biscuit ($7.50). Sandy did the same, but opted for potatoes rather than grits. I like my eggs gently scrambled. There is nothing worse than overcooked brown, rubbery eggs. They were creamy and required a dusting of salt and pepper. The bacon was crisp, but I thought the serving was rather small. Now let’s focus on the grits and biscuit. Biscuits here were a big square of warm and crumbly dough. I smeared on some butter and homemade jam and was quite content. I love grits and have eaten them all over the south. A bowl of stone ground grits topped with lots of butter, salt and pepper is the perfect go-to side dish for breakfast. The ones at Morning Glory were cooked to perfection. I watched as the soft butter melted into the piping hot bowl of goodness and marveled why so many brunch spots fail to serve them. Egg dishes come with a small ramekin of spiced apples which I thought was inspirational. They were cubed, cooked and dusted with cinnamon. They tasted just as fine cool as they did warm. “I should have ordered the grits,” Sandy said as she pushed the pile of potatoes to the side of the plate. “They are not hot and are overcooked.” Edward agreed. He ordered the shrimp wrap ($9.50) which came with a choice

of a side salad or roasted potatoes. The shrimp salad, however, was unusually good. It was not packed with mayonnaise, which is the way you would find shrimp salad prepared in most diners. It was seasoned with herbs and rolled into a spinach tortilla. Morning Glory closes at 3 p.m. on weekends and 4 p.m. on weekdays. In some ways, it reminded me of the luncheonettes of my childhood. They were comfortable, inexpensive and friendly neighborhood spots where consistency, in food and service, was important. Since the cooks at Morning Glory turn out top-rated grits, I think they should offer the classic Southern dish, shrimp and grits. I first tried this breakfast years ago

on Shem Creek near Charleston, S.C. This went through my mind as, ironically, Jason hails from Charleston, which, to me, is a little Philadelphia with palm trees. Two-and-a-half tips of the toque to Morning Glory Diner. SPR

Sweets you can t ’

pass over

To prepare for next week’s feast, gather recipes for gelte sh, matzo ball soup and brisket, but don’t forget about dessert. These recipes from Jewish cookbooks will surely make enough sugary treats to last eight days. By Phyllis Stein-Novack Food Columnist

P

assover begins at sundown Monday evening. The eight-day festival of freedom celebrates the exodus from Egypt when, according to the bible, 600,000 men, women and children followed Moses into the desert, crossed the Red Sea and, after some turbulent times, settled in the Promised Land. Alas, poor Moses, he never did see the land of milk and honey. Monday night’s Seder is my sister Sandy’s birthday. When we were growing up, her birthday included a sponge cake that my grandmother would brighten up with candles. That was it. No ice cream, no chocolate frosting, just plain sort-of-dry sponge cake. Sandy and I thank the brilliant pastry chefs of the 21st century for giving us the heavenly rich chocolate fudge-like cake known as the flourless torte. It has become popular over the last century, and if Passover falls on Sandy’s birthday, she delights in this rich cake that we serve with strawberries. I recently stuck my big toe into the sea of baking. I thank my friend chef Christopher Thames who showed me how easy it is to bake biscotti. Several months ago, I made some baking equipment purchases at Fante’s with the help of the delightful Mariella. Every sales person in this store gives you good advice. I came home with a Cuisinart stand mixer which can be

detached and used as a hand mixer; two 9-inch cake pans; two cookie sheets and a muffin tin pan. Who knows? I might just try my hand at cupcakes which seem to be all the rage. Whole Foods bakes flourless chocolate cakes during Passover. There are dozens of recipes for this dessert that you can find on the Internet. Our friend Thom is bringing Sandy’s birthday cake. But I am going to christen my cookie sheets and bake enough Passover cookies and sweets to last a full eight days.

■ Sienna Almond Cookies ■ from “The Classic Cuisine of the Italian Jews” by Edda Servi Machlin Ingredients:

2 egg whites Dash of salt 1 cup of granulated sugar 1 orange rind, freshly grated 1 teaspoon of pure almond extract 1/2 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract 10 ounces of blanched almonds, finely chopped 1/4 cup of Passover cake meal 1/4 cup of sugar 2 tablespoons of margarine Confectioners’ sugar

Directions: Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Beat the egg whites with the salt until stiff and dry. Gradually add the sugar and beat until

you have the consistency of a marshmallow. Add the orange rind, extracts and almonds. Mix until it is a rather hard paste. Combine the cake meal with the sugar. Generously grease a baking sheet with the margarine and sprinkle it with the cake meal/sugar mixture. Divide the almond paste into 24 to 30 equal parts. Wet your hands. Form the cookies into diamond shapes. Place them two inches apart and bake for about 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and, while still hot, sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar. Place on a cooling rack. When cool, store in an airtight tin. Makes 24 to 30 cookies.

per. Drop the mixture by heaping tablespoons onto the baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes or until slightly firm. Makes about 22 sweets.

■ Pistachio Sweets ■

Directions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Put everything in the food processor and blend to a soft, creamy paste. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Drop the mixture by heaping tablespoons onto the baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes, or until slightly firm. They are supposed to be soft and moist. Makes about 28 cupcakes.

from “The Book of Jewish Food” by Claudia Roden Ingredients:

2-1/3 cups of shelled unsalted pistachios, coarsely ground in the food processor 1 cup of superfine sugar 1 to 2 tablespoons of orange blossom water 2 whole eggs 2 egg yolks

Directions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Leave the pistachios in the food processor. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend well. Line a baking sheet with parchment pa-

■ Almond and Chocolate ■ Cupcakes from “The Book of Jewish Food” by Claudia Roden Ingredients:

7 ounces of dark, bittersweet chocolate, broken into pieces 1 cup of roasted blanched almonds 3 eggs 1/2 cup of sugar

Note from Phyllis: When people ask me which Jewish cookbook I recommend, “The Book of Jewish Food” is the one. It is a culinary masterpiece of research, history and culture of the Jewish people. SPR Comment at www.southphillyreview.com/foodand-drink/features.

Alberta Johnson (nee Hughes) It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother

MICHELE

Alberta Johnson, known by most as Snookie, on Monday, March 28th 2011.

FOSCO

Alberta was born to the late Edward Hughes and Lucille Jones on November 28, 1923 and raised in South Philadelphia, where she remained her entire life. Her sisters Ruth, Daisy, Lucille; and Peaches and Pearl Camottie all preceded her in death. On January 17, 1942 she married Nathanial “Jelly” Johnson Sr., and remained his loving wife for 57 years until his untimely death in 1999. Alberta attended the Philadelphia Public School System, and later the APEX School of Beauty Culture, graduating as a licensed beautician in 1952. She began her career as a seamstress in 1941, and served as an active union member and shop steward, until her retirement in 1986.

OUR BELOVED MICHELE;

Alberta was a warm, kind, and generous lady, who commanded respect. She was well known for speaking her mind and sharing her years of wisdom with others. Her home, until the untimely death of Nathanial, was the hub for family gatherings. She prided herself on her weekly Friday supper of fried fish, shrimp, and cornbread; and sweet potato pies. In her pastime, she enjoyed the company of family and friends, cooking, pinochle, classic movies, traveling, the music of Aretha Franklin, and weekend spirits. She was deeply loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

IT HAS BEEN 2 YEARS SINCE YOU LEFT US TO BE WITH THE ANGELS. THERE ISN’T A DAY THAT GOES BY THAT WE DON’T THINK OF YOU AND CRY.

Her memory will be cherished by her daughters Lucille Higgins, Renee Johnson, and Aretha Hall; Son-In-Laws Andrew Higgins and Donnie Moore; Daughter-In-Law Mary Johnson; Sister-In-Law Thelma Johnson; Grandchildren Kevin Johnson, Pamela Johnson, Antone Higgins Sr., Aerneath Powell, Natalie Johnson, Jameson Digby, Jennell Digby, Richard Hall III, Justin Digby and Rickteshia Hall; and a host of great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and cousins.

NO MATTER WHAT LIFE THROWS YOUR WAY YOU ALWAYS HAD A SMILE AND KIND WORD FOR EVERYONE, ESPECIALLY YOUR BELOVED DAUGHTER AND SON, KRISTA AND JOHN. YOU WERE SO PROUD OF THEM AND YOUR GRANDCHILDREN, GIA, LEXIE, ADRIANNA AND NICHOLAS. UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN. BROKEN HEARTED AND SADLY MISSED BY SON, DAUGHTER, GRANDCHILDREN, MOM AND DAD, GRANDMOM, SISTER AND BROTHER, AUNTS AND UNCLES, AND NEICES AND NEPHEWS.

Unanimous precision

A Passyunk Square pugilist is preparing to add to his promising career. By Joseph Myers R e v i e w s ta f f w r i t e r

N

ow that his mind is as potent as his left hand has always been, Joe Zimbello feels prepared to add his name to boxing’s annals. The 26-year-old will chase extra fame Saturday, lacing up his gloves at The Regional Novice and Junior Golden Gloves championships. His involvement comes courtesy of three victories at the Eastern District championships, triumphs that deem him the City champion. As his first amateur wins, the performances have given the resident of 11th and McKean streets added conviction and have validated his intermittent pursuit of pugilistic prominence. Once nervous to test his might and his chin, Zimbello credits scoring the district crown for allowing him to think of Saturday as “just another night.” “I had much more pressure for my first fight,” he said of his March 18 knockout conquest at North Philadelphia’s Front Street Gym, the renowned facility he again will experience this weekend. The 165-pound fighter absorbed early hits in that bout, eventually dropping his foe and raising his resolve. “The opening concerned me a bit, but the overall result let me know what I am made of, which is something I had sought to learn for some time,” he said. Another knockout followed March 25, with his third success coming April 1 via a decision. For his efforts, he beat out 79 competitors for the tournament’s Best Boxer distinction. “Winning the event wowed me,” Zimbello, who lost a first-round preliminary clash in last year’s version, said of emerging from his eight-man bracket. Heavy punches offset the heavy feelings the March 6 death of close friend Ricky Ferrer had kindled. “His death provided inspiration,” Zimbello said. “I swore to his family I would fight in his honor.” Bearing trunks with “YoBoMoCuz,” one of his fallen friend’s favorite expressions on the front of his shorts and “Ferrer” on the back, he proved in his second tournament that April Fool’s Day was not an occasion to mess with one’s destiny.

A product of St. Nicholas of Tolentine School, 913 Pierce St., and a member of the first graduating class from Prep Charter High School, 1928 Point Breeze Ave., he completed two years as a liberal arts major at Community College of Philadelphia. Still coveting direction upon completion, he sought admission into a trade union. Following disappointing news from the carpenters and plumbers fraternities, he earned the favor of the Electricians IBEW Local 98. “I had a good interview and am part of a great local [union],” Zimbello, whose news meant he could fulfill a promise to his mother Maria not to fight professionally until finishing his schooling, said.

As high schoolers, the siblings helped the Huskies win back-to-back Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association Class AA state championships in 2006 and ’07 under coach Dan Brinkley. This season, Marcus was a secondteam All-American while Markieff was an honorable mention All-American. “This decision was tugging at both our hearts,” Markieff said in a story posted on the University of Kansas athletics website. “Coach [Bill] Self thinks this is a good time and we feel this is the best for us and for our family. I would like to thank the fans for their support over the past years.”

ROOKIE RUGBY

Murphy Rec Center, Fourth and Shunk streets, is hosting flag rugby for sixth- to eighth-grade boys and girls ages 12 to 14. All teams will be invited to attend and wear their uniforms to the USA Collegiate Sevens Rugby Championship at Chester’s PPL Park. Call 215-685-1874. —By Alvaro Balderas, Bill Gelman, Evan Jacoby and Joseph Myers

Sports ing style is not a liability. To polish his frame and his form, he has doubled his training days, giving himself only one day of rest. Runs and bicycle rides join with massive amounts of situps to sharpen his movements and to present a commanding presence. Regular sparring sessions at multiple locations, including the Front Street Gym, provide ample exposure to different strategies and reveal his curiosity over how high his confidence can soar. “I can’t even think about being timid,” he said. “My recent fights answered a ton for me. I don’t need to start asking myself more stuff.” With quantifiable proof of his prowess, Zimbello sees what will follow in two days as a fantastic opportunity to grow. “I’ve been able to rely on my family and friends for support as I’ve pursued boxing. I know I have to do the fighting, which can be grueling, but it’s easier with their help,” Zimbello, who sees his Argentinian mother, Sicilian father Salvatore and sister Joann as his backbone, said. His parents’ heritage has allowed Zimbello, who spent part of his childhood in Argentina, to become trilingual. For his upcoming test, he will be more than happy to hear in any tongue that he is the winner. If he triumphs, his fists will do their next pounding at the novice state finals May 7 in Pittsburgh.

Since its inception in 1923, the Golden Gloves has produced many notable champions, including Cassius Clay, the 1960 heavyweight champion who, as Muhammad Ali, dazzled the sporting world with his jabs and his quips; Evander Holyfield, the ’84 conqueror of the 178-pound division; and Oscar De La Hoya, the ’89 vanquisher in the 125-pound class. Zimbello fights for the Pennsylvania Golden Gloves franchise, one of 30 bodies under the National Golden Gloves’ jurisdiction. Holyfield, with 11 fights, and De La Hoya, with one, have fought in a state with which Zimbello yearns to become familiar as a professional, New Jersey. “I would love to be a headliner like [the late Arturo] Gatti,” he said of the Italian-Canadian puncher and former featherweight and welterweight champion who waged 31 of his 49 bouts in the Garden State. With such aspirations, Zimbello makes a great case study for anyone looking to understand the fusing of talent with belief. As he prepares for Saturday and beyond, he is beginning to become even more fond of his mantra. “Shoot for the moon before you settle for the stars,” he said. “I like that one.” SPR Contact Staff Writer Joseph Myers at jmyers@ southphillyreview.com or ext. 124.
