Gosnell Key To Tighter Abortion Rules Thanks To Dr. Kermit Gosnell, Pennsylvania prolifers made gains in the General Assembly last week. The House adopted a bill holding abortion clinics to the same safety standards outpatient surgical centers must meet and the Senate Appropriations Committee approved a bill ensuring no taxpayer funds are used to subsidize abortion coverage in federal health-care insurance plans. The Pennsylvania House passed HB 574 by a vote of

148-43. The Senate Appropriations Committee passed SB 3, which will go to the full Senate for a vote the week of May 23. The House bill, introduced by State Rep. Matt Baker (R-Bradford) and supported by State Rep. John Taylor (R-Kensington), was in direct response to the grand-jury indictment against the Women’s Medical Society. Described as filthy in the general media, Gosnell’s clinic and the conditions there allegedly caused the

death of at least two women during botched late-term abortions. Other allegations against Gosnell’s clinic included babies being born alive, then killed by having their spinal cords snipped by scissors; having medical procedure performed by untrained personnel; and the use of unsterilized tools that spread venereal disease from patient to patient. The vote on HB 574 was an emotional one, with State Rep. Margo Davidson (D-

Delaware) stating, “I’ve listened to the debate of HB 574, sometimes with tears in my eyes. Mr. Speaker, I respect the sanctity of life, and I respect the sanctity of life of women. I am supporting HB 574 on behalf of my cousin who was killed at the Gosnell clinic.” Gosnell and several employees have been charged with murder and numerous other offenses. The grand jury additionally found that two State departments repeatedly ignored complaints about

Gosnell and the clinic. Prosecutors said State regulators had inspected Gosnell’s clinic only three times since 1979. Civil liberties and abortion rights advocates have criticized the HB 574, saying it is a thinly veiled attempt at restricting abortions that will force abortion clinics to close because of the expense of meeting the new regulations. A similar bill in Texas caused 18 of 20 clinics to close their doors. “These two encouraging pieces of news in the ongoing

battle to protect life are certainly victories in which we can find hope,” said Colin Hanna, president of the Pennsylvania Pastors’ Network and Let Freedom Ring. “We applaud our Representatives and Senators who are willing to stand up for what’s right and for the wishes of the constituents in our state. We can only hope and pray that the passage of these two bills will truly change the way our state handles abortions — until the day when abortion is prohibited altogether.”

Staten Charitable Trust Honors Four At Golf Classic The Samuel Staten, Sr. Charitable Trust, formerly the Laborers’ District Council Charity Fund, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, will hold its 12th annual Charity Golf Classic on Tuesday, May 31, 2011 at Spring Mill Country Club in Ivyland, Pa.

ence Award” for their longstanding commitment and dedication to working families to four honorees: Daniel Woodall, Jr., business manager of Laborers’ Local 135, Walter Higgins, business manager of Laborers’ Local 57, Ryan Boyer, business manager of Laborers’ District Council and James Harper, Sr., business manager of Laborers’ Local 413. The mission of The

Samuel Staten, Sr. Charitable Trust is to provide a variety of services to the needy and otherwise underserved community members throughout the five-county area of Philadelphia. This mission is achieved through a variety of fundraising events and activities. The Samuel Staten, Sr. Charitable Trust illustrates the power of organized labor to make a difference in our community. The charity has

raised over $1.3 million since its inception. The Samuel Staten, Sr. Charitable Trust was known as The Laborers’ District Council Charity Fund until 2011. The name of the charity was changed to honor Samuel Staten, Sr., the man who founded the LDC Charity Fund through a purely unselfish act of charity during his time as business manager of Laborers’ Local 332 and

secretary treasurer of the Laborers’ District Council of the Philadelphia Metropolitan Area & Vicinity. Now retired, Staten, Sr. continues to work with the charity’s Board of Directors to raise funds to assist a wide range of charitable organizations. Proceeds from the12th annual Charity Golf Classic will benefit the American Diabetes Association, Jenkin-

town Day Nursery, Fox Chase Mesothelioma Fund, the Qa’id Staten Memorial Scholarship Fund and more!

PHA Employees, Residents Beautify Neighborhoods Employees of the Philadelphia Housing Authority dressed in “business casual” Friday as they joined with residents to clean and brighten 14 public-housing sites across the city. The agency held “Families Working for Families Day” as part of PHA’s commitment to get back to the basics of service and focus on its core business of property management and maintenance. Residents joined in the effort to beautify the agency’s older housing sites. Location assignments were handed out to employees prior to today’s event.

ward leaders, it seemed the primary was anyone’s ball game to win. But Brady’s team struck them out. One of the top GOTV ward leaders, John Sabatina, Sr., lost three of the four judicial campaigns he was mentoring. The fourth, Charles Ehrlich, won as he was also the beneficiary of a Democrat City Committee endorsement. Effective GOTV support was demonstrated by Democrats of Oak Lane Team, who brought in seven of their 11 endorsements. Headed by Marion Wimbush, the Team sponsors annual Mothers Day and Pre-Election Sunday brunches at the Oak Lane Diner, where their candidates were given a chance to appear on radio as well as meet and greet the voters.

Mayor Did Well With Council Endorsements

Mayor Michael Nutter put his arms around 11 City Council candidates, endorsing them all, and came up just one short. Whether they will feel beholden to him when it comes to passing bills for more taxes and fees remains to be seen. Of the 11, only one of his picks failed to make the Tuesday 8 p.m. muster. That was Martin Bednarek, who lost handily to Bob Henon to replace Councilwoman Joan Krajewski in the 6th Dist. The others selected by Nutter in the District races were Mike Squilla, 1st; Kenyatta Johnson, 2nd; Curtis Jones, 4th; Maria QuiñonesSánchez,7th; Cindy Bass, 8th; Marian Tasco, 9th; and the five incumbent Council atLarge members, all who have returned for another four-year term: W.

2 GOP Factions Fight To A Tie

Warring camps within Philadelphia’s Republican Party can both claim victory – at least a moral victory – after Tuesday’s remarkable primary. City Committee’s endorsed candidate Karen Brown held a slim lead over insurgent John Featherman on Wednesday morning with 96.44% of the vote tabulated – 8,251 to 8,192. This race cannot be called until absentee ballots are counted. In the City Commissioners’ race, Al Schmidt, who carried the banner for dissidents allied to the State Republican Committee, ran very close to incumbent Commissioner Joe Duda, 9,186 to 9,290. The two are guaranteed spots on the November ballot. With 10,797 votes recorded by Wednesday morning, Ward Leader David

Oh led the GOP ticket handsomely with 10,797 votes, followed by State Rep. Denny O’Brien at 10,106. Banker Joe McColgan ran a strong third, with business organizer Al Taubenberger and attorney Michael Untermeyer finishing off the ticket. These two ticket-leaders have steadfastly avoided identifying themselves with either faction. McColgan, although a protégé of Duda’s, made a forthright appeal to the State Committee people as well; while Untermeyer is associated more with the Center City crowd that supports the State Committee, he has always respected City Committee and was its chosen candidate for District Attorney two years ago. Now completely out of the picture is a faction of one: incumbent Councilman at Large Frank Rizzo. Rejected by both camps because he had accepted a DROP payment, the Councilman found ordinary Republican voters of a like mind. He finished sixth and will not return to Council next year. Election Court Judges Busy

Much of the activity around Election Courts throughout the city centered on “phony ballots”. Complaining were endorsed candidates whose names were not on the sample ballots circulated as “the official Democrat or Republican Sample Ballot”. They looked like real thing, but carried the name of the unendorsed challenger. The judges ruled they were not to be distributed. But the enforcement procedure wasn’t there to follow up. Taking advantage of this irritant to weaken the opposition was the campaign team of Bob

1st Ward Leader John Dougherty also emerged from Tuesday’s election with some new friends on City Council. His powerful union, IBEW Local 98, endorsed and heavily funded one incumbent Councilman at Large, Bill Green, along with two new District Council faces, Mark Squilla in the 1st and Bob Henon in the 6th. So the Elec-

tricians’ interests will have several sets of friendly ears in the next Council. Faced with three formidable opponents, Squilla still waltzed home with 41% of the vote. Henon, who is Local 98’s political director, crushed Ward Leader Marty Bednarek to take over the 6th Dist. with 65% of the vote. Green came in second in the at-Large race with over 63,000 votes. Dougherty’s Common Pleas judicial candidate Angelo Foglietta also came in second in a crowded field, with over 48,000 votes. In the seven-way race for one seat on Municipal Court, Dougherty’s candidate Marty Coleman also ran a strong second to the Party-endorsed favorite Marvin Williams, winding up with over 26,000 votes to Williams’ 36,000.

String Band Music Brought Out Support

New 6th Dist. Councilman Bob Henon heeded the advice of his mentor IBEW Local 98 Business Mgr. John J. Dougherty, Jr., to march through Polish American neighborhoods in Port Richmond behind a Mummers band. The first door his supporters knocked out brought a youngster with Down’s syndrome, followed by his dad, who told Henon, “I wouldn’t dare vote for anyone else but you and Johnny Doc, since my child has been the beneficiary of so much from the Variety Club through your efforts.” Who Has Most Absentee Ballots?

With an edge of 72 machine votes to his credit as of yesterday morning, State Rep. Kenyatta Johnson may still be the final winner in the close challenge he seems to have survived from Barbara Capozzi. But that won’t be decided until 155 absentee ballots are figured in, plus, as of press time, at least a dozen or more alternative ballots. Both campaigns gathered absentee ballots, but they weren’t certain of the numbers turned in by their respective cadres.

Most Endorsed Won In Council District Races

The District Council races went to those who were endorsed by their respective caucuses. The one exception was the 8th, where the bulk of the ward leaders had indicated they were backing Verna Tyner. Cindy Bass took that one with powerbrokers Mayor Michael Nutter, Congressman Chaka Fattah (D-Phila.) and State Sen. Vincent Hughes (DW. Phila.) behind her. Big Ballots Seen Tough To Follow

With 86 challengers and

incumbents seeking to fill or reclaim 25 seats, the Democrat City Committee ballot was a long one for voters to follow. Where it was the only ballot available to Democrat voters in the various election precincts or divisions around the city, it served as a guide that took at least five minutes for the average voter to locate the entire ticket on the voting machine. The sole question on the ballot, as a result, saw a major drop in the total vote, due to the fact many voters forgot there was a question on the ballot and failed to spot it, so involved were they in locating the Party choices. Many Democrat ward leaders had their committeepersons pass out their “reduced” versions of the full Democrat-endorsed slate, almost all eliminating the citywide judicial races for Superior and Commonwealth Court. The Republican ballot, for the first time in recent history, had challengers in five of the 11 races on the primary ballot. Theirs was easier to navigate, though, and required average voting time of only two minutes. Adding to the confusion facing Democrat voters were the District Council fights in the 1st, 2nd, 5th, 6th and 8th Dists., where volunteers and get-out-the-vote workers were presenting bullet or short ballots, containing few other names beside their prime selection. Singer Has A Lot Of Learning To Do

Eighth Ward Leader Stephanie Singer's win in the City Commissioners’ Democrat race resulted in the defeat of long-time Chair Margaret Tartaglione. If tradition is to hold sway, the next chairman of the Commissioners will be Commissioner Anthony Clark. Both will have their hands full, should they successfully dominate the Commissioners' race in the General Election. Either Republican Joseph Duda or Al Schmidt will be asked to support one of the two Democrats as chair and

Clark has the edge. However, there will be a brain drain in the offices of the City Commissioners, since several of the key administrators, with tenure well over 30 years, have indicated they will be taking their leave as well. 65 Nonprofits Sought Homeless Voters

Approximately 65 nonprofits, many working on housing and the shelters for the homeless, worked this primary to get homeless and low-income voters out to the polls. The Vote for Homes Command Center was located at Project H.O.M.E. headquarters at 1515 Fairmount. Sister Mary Scullion, executive director of Project H.O.M.E., said the coalition was “proving people who are homeless and living on low incomes do vote and should have their voices heard.” Don’t Count Out Anne Marie Coyle

Don’t count out Anne Marie Coyle, Republican nominee for the Court of Common Pleas. As with other judicial candidates, she filed to run on both the Democrat and Republican slates. Unendorsed by the Dems, she logged in 20,197 votes in that column while she topped the Republican slate with a 10,845 vote. The ever-smiling attorney no doubt has won the hearts of Hibernians and others throughout the city and they may just coalesce to make her a commendable challenger for one of the 10 Common Pleas seats in November.

Speaking Of Judges

Another Opinion Spend Surplus On Children by Jerry T. Jordan, president Philadelphia Federation of Teachers PFT members demonstrated outside more than 200 Philadelphia schools last week to protest the State’s devastating education budget cuts. Joined by parents, students, administrators and community supporters, teachers walked

picket lines before school to urge the Governor and legislature to close corporate tax loopholes, instead of closing schools. Parents, teachers and staff are frustrated by Gov. Tom Corbett’s proposed $1.2 billion cut in education funding, which will mean huge cuts in school programs, services and staff; will reverse eight years of aca-

demic-achievement gains; and will exacerbate the education opportunity gap between lowincome students and students in wealthier communities. They see these cuts as inequitable, imprudent and unwarranted, while the House Republicans’ alternative budget isn’t much better. It raids health and human services funding to partially restore education funding. After the 2007 costing-out study, Pennsylvania’s legislature invested new resources in public education, and by all accounts, it paid off.

There once was a time an endorsement by the Democrat or Republican City Committee was all a judge needed to insure his nomination in the primary. There was also the opportunity for Republican and Democrat judicial candidates to sometimes share the support by both Parties in the General. The cost to each candidate was kept to a bare minimum. But that seems to have gone by the wayside, and who is to blame but the judicial candidates themselves – especially some of those who were the beneficiaries of those endorsements? For any number of reasons, they have seen fit to sign up the services of Get-Out-The-Vote specialists, some of them ward leaders, to insure they get maximum coverage at the polls by having their names appear on every conceivable type of ballot. Based on the proliferation of ballots one saw this primary, it could make sense. Yet it is this effort on the part of candidates to insure maximum coverage that has generated such an increase in different ballots. For years, there have been several groups of ward leaders who have proven their ability to increase voter turnout for their candidate clients. However, their success has spawned many new groups and individuals, including faith-based organizations, this past primary, which purported to have credible GOTV organizations. Yet none can lay claim to being responsible for the votes their candidate clients received primary day. Despite the fact the majority of endorsed candidates came through in convincing enough-numbers for both parties to verify the effectiveness of official Party support, the question still remains: When will the practice to stray from Party support end? We don’t have an answer.

The Public Record • May 19, 2011

The State Supreme Court continually claims to be chronically underfunded, while it continued to increase judiciary payrolls over the past six years. Supreme Court Chief Justice Ronald D. Castille believes the courts face a $47 million deficit in the 201-2012 budget. He is calling for a 25% funding increase from the State legislature. Yet under his aegis, the Pennsylvania judiciary’s payroll has increased from $159 million to $190.4 million, paying little attention to the fact the State has gone through a rough recession with its tax revenues down by millions. Castille obviously ignores the fact his annual salary of just over $195,000 makes him the third highest in the nation among State chief justices. The same can be said for the other members of this high court. Castille doesn’t seem to believe in belt-tightening, especially when the State’s General Assembly is trying to come up to solutions with a $4.2 billion deficit. His administration defends the raises, saying judges’ salaries are increased by the law, though it claimed to hold down costs by a hiring freeze and position consolidation. A National Center for State Courts did a 2011 salary survey, which showed the State’s judges and justices are among the top paid State jurists in the nation. The justification for ever-higher salaries is based, by most of the jurists as well as Castille, on the fact they would have earned more had they remained in the practice of law. So who asked them to run?

Beware The ‘Kill You’ Scam

by Peter Radatti, President & CEO, CyberSoft Operating Corp. The internet “Kill You” scam trades on fear. It is actually an old scam called the extortion/hit man scam, but it is brought up to date by use of the internet. Right now, these crooks are targeting nannies or childcare works. It is believed they are obtaining the names and contact details of the nannies from internet online sites offering services as nannies, while a few reported that they responded to an online advertisement for a nanny. At least one worker was a day-care worker and not a traditional nanny. Here is how this scam works. The victim receives an email telling them a professional killer is targeting them for murder. The sender of the email claims to be the killer. The crook goes on to tell them a friend of the victim’s paid for the hit, but if the victim pays them between $150,000

to $250,000 they will not kill them and provide evidence to put their friend in jail. This scam is unfortunately being successful. I personally find it hard to believe how many potential victims think have friends who want to kill them. How about nannies? How many 6-year-olds have the money to put a hit on their nanny? “That will pay you for making me eat my spinach!” Actually, while it sounds funny from our viewpoint, it is terrifying from the viewpoint of the victim and that is why it is working. If you or someone you know is involved in a scam of this type, here is what to do. First, do not provide any personal information or money. If you already have done so. then you need to contact the police and the Internet Crime Complain Center at www.ic3.gov. If you provided any personal information, you need to contact all three of the national credit-reporting agencies and report at-

By the time the May primary election ended… I had an idea of how many knuckleheads live in Philadelphia. I realized we would no longer have a City Councilman who looked like Moe from the Three Stooges. We got closer to having all of the populations in the City of Philadelphia represented in City Council. I saw some really uncomfortable folks waiting for election results. And I wondered what it’s going to take to make folks realize if you don’t vote, you get the government that you deserve. First the knuckleheads…. As expected, Mayor Michael Nutter won the Democratic Mayoral Primary over his opponent T. Milton Street. Nutter kept his powder dry, didn’t really hit the campaign trail until late, and despite getting dissed by District Council 33 and the Fire Fighters Union, who asserted a change was needed in the Mayor’s office, the vote wasn’t even close. In his acceptance speech, Nutter pledged to create a “New Philadelphia” where the streets are even safer, jobs are available and the educational system benefits everyone, not just the lucky few. “We need to focus our efforts on education,” he said. “There is nothing that has more of an impact than investing in a quality education for our kids.” That’s true, Mr. Mayor. But you might want to pass that bit of information on to Gov. Tom Corbett, who just sent the State Legislature a budget that guts education like a dead fish. When asked about that reality, Nutter admitted he has to work on the details a little. “At the moment, we don’t know how we’re going to solve these problems,” he said. “But we need to focus on them.” Nutter won with 75% of the vote. Street received 25%. That 25% is important as census information, according to a Judge of Elections whom I interviewed in Germantown on Tuesday. Why? Because, as she put it, the number of votes Street received toward his mayoral bid would “tell you how many knuckleheads you have in your neighborhood.” (Cont. Page 14)

SNOOPER’S “BIG DAY”: Yes it’s come here – ELECTION DAY and now we got our say who will be our next MAYOR and CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS. The HON. MICHAEL NUTTER will once again be THE MAYOR, no question about it. CITY COUNCIL has definitely seen a few NEW FACES, even in at-LARGE SEATS. One of the big questions was who will replace our great SHERIFF, HON. JOHN GREEN, as our NEW SHERIFF. Yes, there were plenty of names to select from, and this one was a very interesting RACE; after all, there were a lot of good candidates to pick from, very interesting too. It’s true, I told you this was definitely YOUR ELECTION and you have decided who gets what! I hope you VOTED. This was a very IMPORTANT ELECTION for ALL OF US! Philadelphia is “ON THE MOVE” and what you did yesterday will HELP. SNOOPER SCOOPER: The 1st Judicial Dist. has a very important election coming up and it’s THE JUDGES who must decide who will be the next JURY SELECTION COMMISSIONER. I’m told all of the candidates have been submitted to JUDGE OVERTON who will then present these names for consideration to THE BOARD OF JUDGES and they will then select one name and whoever it might be becomes the NEW JURY SELECTION COMMISSIONER. SNOOPER SIGHTING: Stopped by THE ARENA, and lo and behold, there was a PRO WRESTLING show going on inside. This new group, known as JERSEY ALL-PRO WRESTLING combined with PRO WRESTLERS from THE JAPANESE GROUP WRESTLING. I met JOE STIVALA, from the LOCAL PRESS, who was there to cover this event for his newspapers. These JAPANESE WRESTLERS put on a fantastic show, and I’m told they’ll all be back in Philadelphia for the next PRO WRESTLING SHOW here at THE ARENA. Let me tell all you wrestling fans, I have never seen such professionalism, and what a show they all put on that night. JOE STIVALA stated, “This group is one of THE BEST out there today.” SNOOPER’S SPECIAL MESSAGE: I need your help for a good friend of mine, and I hope you will help me. KAITLYN McCANDLESS, a beautiful young lady, needs help, and I’m asking ALL OF YOU to get involved. This beautiful YOUNG LADY has a serious medical problem, for she has been diagnosed with HODGKIN’S LYMPHOMA. I’m asking all (Cont. Page 25)

Yo! Here we go again with this great news: They are going to honor Carmine Orlando Tilelli. He was a great middleweight boxing champion who lived and trained in South Phila. He is better known as “Joey Giardello.” Giardello was born in Brooklyn, but lived and trained in the E. Passyunk Crossing area of South Philadelphia. He joined many other Italian Americans in the city in taking up boxing. He turned professional in 1948, not long after his 18th birthday. As a pro, he quickly racked up an 18-0-1 record in his first 19 fights. He was beating some of the better middleweight boxers on the Philadelphia scene and continued to do so for years afterward, but was blocked from receiving a shot at the world championship. On April 20, 1960 Joey Giardello finally received a championship opportunity when he faced Gene Fullmer for the National Boxing Association version of the world middleweight title. He missed out on the title when he and Fullmer fought to a draw over 15 rounds. Then, on Jun. 24, 1963, Giardello upset boxing legend Sugar Ray Robinson, and at the age of 33, was finally named as the No. 1 challenger for the world middleweight title. He wasted no opportunity. On Dec. 7, Giardello faced Dick Tiger in Atlantic City for the title and won, taking the world championship by decision in 15 rounds. He reigned as world champion for nearly two years, winning four title defenses during that time. The most notable was a Dec. 14, 1964 against Reuben Carter, which many today wrongly believe Carter lost by an unjust decision because of the fight’s portrayal in the 1999 movie The Hurricane. Carter started the fight well, landing a few solid rights to the head in the early rounds, but was not able to follow them up. By the 5th round, Giardello had taken control of the fight and was awarded a unanimous decision. Giardello fought just four more times over the next two years before retiring with a record of 134 fights, 101 wins 33 KOs, 25 losses and 7 draws. He died on Sep. 4, 2008 in Cherry Hill, N.J. He was 78 years old. The Joey Giardello statue is finished and will be dedicated in his honor and unveiled this Saturday, May 21. The statue’s site is at South 13th & Mifflin Streets & E. Passyunk Avenue. I know I will be there and I hope you too will take time to be part of this historic event.

Democrats and Republicans showed they were willing and able to eat their own on Election Day. COUNCILMAN FRANK RIZZO was dumped by the party and voters, finishing 7th in a field of at-Large Republican Candidates. Maverick STATE REP. DENNY O’BRIEN must be back in favor. He finished second behind DAVID OH and will likely be elected in the fall. The next story will be who will succeed him in the State House. JOE McCOLGAN, the likeable former naval officer, finished third and also has a good shot at winning a minority seat in council. Both O’Brien and McColgan are from the Great Northeast, where there was a lot of Election Day action. The real bloodletting took place on the Democratic side, where longtime City COMMISSIONER MARGE TARTAGLIONE received her comeuppance. She was dropped by many ward leaders, but none more important than those in her backyard. Word on the street had WARD LEADERS JOHN SABATINA and STATE SEN. MIKE STACK coordinating the anti-Tartaglione campaign among other ward leaders. 41ST WARD LEADER CONNIE RODGERS joined the effort. The result was lethal. Tartaglione finished third and will now be able to accept her DROP retirement pay of roughly $288,000 without irritating anyone. Tartaglione supported MARTY BEDNAREK for City Council along with COUNCILWOMAN JOAN KRAJEWSKI. They were highly unsuccessful as BOBBY HENON was resoundingly elected with 64% of the vote. Henon did an artful job of cultivating the mostrespected and -effective ward leaders and was a relentless campaigner. A large celebration took place at Rosewood Caterers which FOP leader JOHN McNESBY cheered on. He was joined by Parking Authority Executive Director JOE ASHDALE, Attorney General hopefuls DAN McCAFFERY and PAT MURPHY, City CONTROLLER ALAN BUTKOVITZ, WARD LEADERS PAT PARKINSON and OZZIE MYERS. State Sen. Mike Stack was there and also greeted voters at Delaire Landing with Henon to help seal the election. WARD LEADER STEPHANIE SINGER was helped by Tartaglione’s bad history on the DROP program and her bad history of disloyalty, but she also ran a great campaign. Singer finished substantially ahead of the pack and had poll coverage everywhere. DAN SAVAGE was unable to overcome the incumbency of MARIA QUINONESSANCHEZ to recapture the 7th Dist. Council Seat.

have to wait awhile to be called the Republican nominee. Brown, representing the Republican City Committee and her opponent John Featherman, representing a so-called “rogue” Republican faction, are currently in a race too close to call. Earlier in the election season, I said that this primary would tell you who was more powerful: Local 98 leader John Dougherty or State Sen. Anthony Hardy Williams. Both had standardbearers running in the primaries. So far, Doc’s ahead. The candidates he supported, Councilman Bill Green, 6th Dist. Council candidate Bobby Henon, and 1st Dist. Council candidate Mark Squilla rolled on to victory. Meanwhile, the biggest name in Williams’ group of candidates, State Rep. Kenyatta Johnson, is a mere 70 votes ahead of Barbara Capozzi for the Second District seat. My guess is Capozzi, a neighbor of outgoing Councilwoman (and Council President) Anna Verna, is already on the phone to election lawyer extraordinaire Greg Harvey preparing to mount a challenge, something Johnson refused to discuss when asked about it Tuesday. While everyone at Johnson’s victory party was on pins and needles, my guess is no one was more so than Damon Roberts, who until two weeks ago was one of contenders for the 2nd Dist. seat. He wasn’t able to remove his name from the ballot by the time he decided to step down and throw his support to Johnson. Roberts got 319 votes. Republican David Oh moved one step closer to becoming the first Asian on City Council by topping the list of Republican at-

Denny O’Brien will be joining him in running for the top two opposition seats in November. Unfortunately for him, Frank Rizzo, Jr. got chopped by the Sword of DROP-ocles. So did, surprisingly, City Commissioner Marge Tartaglione. Stephanie Singer and Anthony Clark will be running as Democrats in November, while Al Schmidt and incumbent Joseph Duda will be vying for the lone Republican seat. Schmidt, part of that dissident faction, had a little star power helping him out in the 1st Dist. Tuesday, in the person of Tracy, one of the Philadelphia Parking Authority’s impound-lot attendants, and one of the stars of the show “Parking Wars.” Maybe more celebrities might have increased voter turnout, which was abysmal.

If we don’t, we shouldn’t complain when we’re not getting what we need. It’s time for folks to stop letting things like rain and other stuff keep them from exercising a franchise far too many people died for you to have. I say that especially since Philadelphia is a predominately Black and Latino city and Blacks and Latinos are the first to say, “Our government officials don’t care about us.” If you don’t vote, you don’t make them care.

Chad, who also owns a company that prints children’s books, did a great deal of traveling to the South on business for several years, where he often ate at barbecue joints, but his favorites were in Memphis — more “dry rub” than the heavily saucebased Texas-style barbecue. When Chad finally decided

Len Lear and chicken tenders. I’ll cook the beans with smoked pork for 16 hours, for example. Consistency in this business is everything. And you can’t get fancy with barbecue. You’re supposed to be messy and get sauce on your fingertips.” Rosey’s is located in a small strip mall, and it’s BYOB. It is not about health food. After a visit to Rosey’s, which replaced a restaurant called Abner’s, you may get stopped and arrested by the Cholesterol Police on the way home. It really does look like a shack just off the highway in the South, with its license plates all around the front counter, rock-hard chairs and the smell of hickory smoke and comfort food permeating the air. (The smoking of cigarettes may be banned, but the smoking of meats is mandatory.) This would be sheer heaven for anyone on

the Atkins Diet. The prices at Rosey’s are certainly quite reasonable. Huge specialty sandwiches are $5.50 to $9.25. Several different kinds of rib choices start at $7.50; chicken wings start at $5 for six; salads start at $2.75 and side dishes at $1.75. Barbecue platters range from $10 to $18.75. Children’s meals are $3.50, and desserts are $3. Rosey’s seats 42, and they do a big takeout business. We tried lots of different dishes, almost all of which were super. The soul and passion are just as apparent as the more-edible ingredients. We thoroughly enjoyed the gumbo, kielbasa, chicken (with Rosey’s 16-spice rub), turkey, brisket, amazing baked beans, green beans, mac and cheese, slaw and mashed sweet potatoes, all loaded with flavor. The babyback ribs and cornbread were a bit bland. Rosey’s is open for lunch and dinner every day of the week. There is live blues music on Friday nights.

to walk out on the high wire and open his own barbecue place in this area (with no previous restaurant experience), he put an ad on Craigslist for a barbecue chef. “I got a zillion replies,” he said, “but not one was right.” He then placed an ad for “a Memphis barbecue chef only.” This time there were just 10 replies, but one was from Jarvis Morris, now 34, who had previously run Neely’s, a BBQ landmark in Memphis, and had owned his own restaurant as well. But the recession sent his restaurant up in flames and drove him to automobile sales, which he “hated.” When Rosey met Jarvis, “I knew he was the one. He had not only the talent but the passion I was looking for. My instincts were right about Jarvis. He puts his heart and soul into his work every day. We are like brothers now and partners in the business. And we have the only true Memphis-style barbecue place in the region.” “I moved here from Memphis with my two kids, and I’m very happy to be here,” added Jarvis. “I come in here seven days a week. Everything we do is with fresh products. I make everything daily except the French fries

by Len Lear I doubt if a restaurant would have much success if it was called Rosenthal’s Barbecue or Chung Lee’s Pizzeria or Kelly’s Kosher Bagels, but fortunately Chad Rosenthal’s nickname growing up near Ambler was “Rosey,” so it was not inappropriate to name his restaurant Rosey’s BBQ, which opened February 2010,

at 505 Old York Road in Jenkintown. Not necessarily a place where you’d expect to find finger-lickin’ barbecue, but down-and-dirty meat mavens have made Rosey’s such a goto destination that the 35year-old boss will be opening a second Rosey’s within the next month at 911 Main Street in Ambler. Several years ago, we visited a famous restaurant in Kansas City called Ruby’s BBQ, and we chatted with

World Trade Center Anti-Frackers Storm City Hall Honors Thomas Morr Thomas G. Morr, president and CEO of Select Greater Philadelphia, will receive the 2011 Global Business Leadership Award as the World Trade Center of Greater Philadelphia holds its annual dinner at the Bellevue Park Hyatt this evening. “This dinner not only celebrates the contribu-

tions of all World Trade Centers globally, but it also recognizes the real successes of the WTCGP in growing exports from the region to the rest of the world,” said Tony Bartolomeo, the body’s chairman. Other 2011 honorees include PIDC and Weston Solutions, Inc.

“DON’T FRACK WITH OUR WATER” proclaims banner at Love Park. 300 marchers blasted natural-gas industry for failing to stop blowouts and contamination, urged Gov. Tom Corbett to deny permits for gas drilling (fracking) statewide and pressed for complete moratorium in Delaware River Basin.

Casey : $15 Million For School Safety US Sen. Bob Casey (DPa.) announced the US Dept. of Labor has awarded $15,033,797 to seven schools in Philadelphia to

reduce violence and improve educational outcomes. “Ensuring our children receive a quality education

in a safe environment is vital to the future strength of our communities and our nation,” said the Senator. “I am pleased to see funds going to the Philadelphia schools most in need of support in order to prevent violence and promote a nurturing education system.” The federal grants will be used to reduce violence

and support educational opportunities within these schools through strategies such as anti-bullying education, peer mentoring and crisis management. Expected outcomes for the initiative include decreased dropout rates, a reduction in school violence and improved student behavior and academic performance.

Lead Contamination Found In Chinatown It’s advisable those living in Philadelphia’s Chinatown community, as well as visitors who have purchased Chinese ceramics, should get themselves tested for lead poisoning. That’s the gist of an article in Jeff News, a quarterly newsletter disseminated by Jefferson Hospital to patients and visitors. Jeff News reported Dr. Gerald O’Malley, who had joined its team last July, had decided to visit Chinatown. Among his medical assets was a fellowship in medical toxicology at the University of Colorado/Rocky Mountain Poison & Drug Center in Denver.

The article reports Dr. O’Malley discovered the source of lead poisoning which was prevalent among the Mexican population in the area. It was the glazed pottery they had brought with them from Mexico. Lead was leaching into the food. In Chinatown, he saw several shops selling ceramic kitchenware. He is quoted as saying, “Knowing both Mexico and China are major sources of imports containing lead, I wondered if those Chinese ceramics also contained lead.” He conveyed that information to Dr. Thomas Gilmore. They purchased and then tested, along with a team of medical students, a sampling of Chinese ceramics. In testing they found 30% of the items purchased show high concentrations of lead. Dr. Gilmore said the test only confirmed there were levels of lead in those ceramics. Jeff News quoted him as saying, “It’s possible the items tested are within acceptable limits. We can’t say they are illegal at this point. However, this makes for a reasonable inference that many are about the limit, especially in those ceramics where the testing spots turned red” (indicating higher concentrations of lead). The team is reported as now working with the Chinatown Health Clinic and hopes to conduct a mass screening of the Chinese community. Shopkeepers have already been advised some of their wares may have harmful lead contaminants.

Nearly 4,000 Philadelphia school employees will be laid off – teachers, counselors, nurses and support staff who are needed in our classrooms, not in unemployment lines. Vital pre-school programs, which provide the foundation for future learning, are slated to disappear next year, as will vocational programs that prepare youngsters for careers and alternative education programs designed to keep schools safe and give struggling students a second chance. Pennsylvania residents don’t have to accept shortsighted cuts that shortchange children. The State will end the current fiscal year with projected surplus of $506 million or more, which the Governor wants to hide in the State’s “Rainy Day Fund” instead of using it to restore education programs. Legislators should reject this plan. They should also defer $320 million in proposed corporate-

tax breaks and use those existing revenues to avert cuts in public-education programs and steep increases in college tuition and fees. Finally, the legislature should emulate other States, like Texas and Oklahoma, which tax gas drillers and levy impact fees. Polls show the overwhelming majority of Pennsylvanians want companies extracting gas from the Marcellus Shale formation to pay their fair share of taxes. Together these sources would provide adequate revenue to support education programs. Education in Pennsylvania is moving in the right direction. This isn’t the time to retreat on our promise to children. Voters want the Governor and legislature to fund schools fully, not give tax breaks to corporations or save the surplus for some distant rainy day. It’s already pouring in our schools.
