BY GREG SALISBURY EW THINGS indicate the health, vitality and livability of a city more than its restaurant scene. And going by that subjective criterion, South Philadelphia and its myriad of neighborhoods will continue to be one of the Delaware Valley’s most desirable dining destinations. There is the embarrassment of riches along E. Passyunk Avenue – think the alchemical wonders of Chef Chris Kearse at his BYOB Will; the transporting baked goods at Tova DuPlessis’s Essen; the deep dives into Malaysian cuisine at Sate Kampar; the continuing Old World family dinners at Mamma Maria’s. An intrepid diner could explore a different Mexican restaurant in South Philly every day for a month and still not scratch the surface of the depth and breadth of what is on offer. Dining on chicken mole and drinking beet-ginger agua fresca among the Mexican grocery staples at La Tienda; picking and choosing dishes from the intoxicating steam table – accompanied

F

by freshly made tortillas – at Guisados Don Roman; or just enjoying the tamales and posole at the aptly named Tamalex, for starters. In addition to these fixtures and the longtime standard-bearers like Italian Market favorites Dante & Luigi’s, Ralph’s, and Villa Di Roma, new blood has been infusing the neighborhoods south of South Street throughout the year. Among the more notable openings: South Philly Barbacoa. Of course, this isn’t so much an opening as a rebirth. The legendary story of husband-and-wife chef/ owners Ben Miller and Cristina Martínez has taken yet another turn, going from cart to rowhouse storefront to shuttering to now holding down the corner of Ninth and Ellsworth streets. There is no better example of what a meal can do for your horizons than to sit down elbow-to-elbow with strangers and dig into Martínez’s generations-old recipes for slow-cooked lamb, homemade hibiscus tea, and restorative consommés. Just get there as early as possible – it’s always been one of the

toughest tickets in town, and will only become more so after Martínez appears this month on Netflix’s “A Chef’s Table.” Another recent addition is Laos Café, which takes over the welcoming location at Passyunk & Hemberger that was long home to the late, lamented Cousins Luncheonette before becoming the alt-fave hangout GrubHouse. After GrubHouse decided to decamp for the more high-traffic environs of the soon-to-open Bourse Food Hall in Old City, the latest entrant in the city’s burgeoning wave of Laotian restaurants

opened here last month. Stop by to enjoy toothsome variations on Laotian classics like tum mak hoong (green papaya salad), nam khao (a crispy rice/lettuce wrap dish), and laad na (flat noodles in thick gravy), as well as plenty of iterations of the national dish, laab – a salad with either beef, pork, chicken, duck or fish, tossed with herbs, mint, lime, and fish sauce. Back to the Italian Market, the 8th Street space that has seen any number of failed restaurants in recent years appears to have finally hit on a winning concept. Acadia, which opened earlier this

summer, takes diners on a tasty tour of Louisiana’s ample culinary heritage. Cajun and Creole specialties dominate the thoughtful menu, including étoufée, jambalaya and gumbo, of course, as well as plenty of riffs on other standards. There is a substantial number of gluten-free and vegetarian options, and curated cocktails with a decidedly New Orleans influence. Bottomless mimosas at brunch make for an enticing Sunday funday draw. This is just the appetizer – check back here in the weeks to come to read more about the changing restaurant scene.

tions. Worldwide Express and Unishippers, under common ownership, are the largest non--retail reseller of UPS® shipping services, operating from more than 200 company and franchise locations across the country. “We were drawn to the Navy Yard because it offers the best of both worlds with its city vibe and campus feel,” said Chet Stachitas, senior area sales manager for Worldwide Express. “There is no other place in the city that offers the same benefits including amenities like Central Green, convenient parking and the opportunity to be the first tenant to occupy our

space in such an exceptional building. We feel like the new environment will reenergize our team.” Worldwide Express, headquartered in Dallas, Tex., is the country’s second-largest privately-held, third-party freight-brokerage company with 100 offices nationwide. The new location will be home to its outside sales team, which will be relocating from Center City. The team’s open floor plan will take advantage of the natural light provided by the building’s floor-to-ceiling windows with space allotted for shuffleboard and pingpong tables to help foster the spirit of camaraderie as

well as competition. Worldwide Express has other Pennsylvania locations in Allentown and Harrisburg. Upon the move this fall, Worldwide Express will join existing tenants, Penn Capital Management, EMD Performance Materials, Paramount Enterprises International, and Insperity, Inc. The new agreement brings Liberty’s 1.58 million-square-foot portfolio at the Navy Yard to 99% leased. One vacancy remains at 1200 Intrepid: the full 23,000-square-foot second floor of this trophy quality building possessing Keystone Opportunity Zone benefits.

HE PHILADELPHIA Navy Yard is getting a new tenant at its already thriving community. Liberty Property Trust has leased 4,612 square feet at 1200 Intrepid Avenue to Worldwide Express, one of the top logistics companies in North America. “We would like to welcome Worldwide Express to the Navy Yard,” said Brian Cohen, vice president and market officer for Liberty Property Trust. “They have chosen an exceptional property in 1200 Intrepid, both for its amazing design and its well-placed position fronting Central Green. Worldwide Express’ em-

ployees and visitors are in an ideal location to take advantage of all that the Navy Yard has to offer.” The Navy Yard is considered the most successful redevelopment of a former military facility in the country. A thriving riverfront neighborhood, the Navy Yard currently features more than 7.5 million square feet of buildings housing 13,000 employees working at 150 companies. Worldwide Express focuses on providing non-asset logistics, offering more than 90,000 customers access to industry-leading small package, less-than-truckload and truckload shipping solu-

in 2017—down quite a bit from previous years – and nearly $1.3 million in charitable donations. It was a no-fuss, no-strings-attached data dump. His Republican challenger, former State Sen. Scott Wagner, has doubled down on keeping his tax returns a secret. In this, he is defying decades of bipartisan political tradition – but hewing to the iconoclastic Trump movement, which rejects old proprieties. At the Pennsylvania Press Club in Harrisburg last month, Wagner explained his position: “I’ve complied with all requirements as a senator, as a candidate. I started my business from scratch. How much I made is nobody’s business. I paid my bills, I don’t owe any back taxes. The State said I’m in full compliance.” State Rep.

At an earlier event in Erie, Wagner noted that his tax returns might give unionists a tool with which to unionize his workers (Wagner provides trash removal for public and private customers). “If I disclose those tax returns,’ Wagner said then, “union representatives get a hold of my tax returns, go around to my employees’ homes at night and say, ‘Hey, Mrs. Jones, how much does your husband make?’ She goes, ‘Well, he makes this.’ ‘Well, this guy makes Councilman Wm.

But it will not appeal to centrists, independents and suburbanites. “Are you interested in how much money my company gives to the local community every year?” Wagner asked press-club interrogators.

Shapiro Rises As Clergy Sink It was not an issue Attorney General Josh Shapiro – or anybody else – wanted. But it is an issue that will propel the energetic young Democrat’s career. The AG’s Office has released its report on a two-year probe into sexual abuse by Roman Catholic clergy in Pennsylvania. It is being assailed in several ways before the State courts, guaranteeing Shapiro a couple of years of

bold headlines. The Catholic vote is substantial in Pennsylvania – including in moribund factory towns where Democratic candidates have increasingly struggled. But no voters pay closer attention to this church scandal than Catholic voters. And polls show most Catholics do not feel their church has handled this issue well. If Shapiro handles his investigations well, he may win not just name recognition, but actual support, from this swing constituency. And the results will no doubt burnish his bona fides for future endeavors. State CityRepresentative Council at Large 2019

The last straight candidate in that district retired early and quietly from the primary race. Yet they keep coming after him, primary after primary… And now the general election. James McDevitt, who has been described as a “gay Berniecrat socialist,” is opposing Sims as an independent in November. McDevitt dismisses Sims as a “corporate lawyer.” He’s an advocate for banning fracking, legalizing marijuana and lowering medical-malpractice premiums (an issue in Philadelphia’s

medical industry). He would also attack racism in the Gayborhood. Sims did a hard probe of McDevitt’s ballot petitions and gave up. As a result, this will be the first Pennsylvania general election in which two openly gay candidates have opposed each other.

Pa.’s Guv Race: Yawn

OPINION BY G. TERRY MADONNA AND MICHAEL YOUNG EMOCRATIC incumbent Tom Wolf is running against Republican challenger Scott Wagner for Pennsylvania governor. With the traditional Labor Day start of the campaign, we feel we should say something interesting about it. The problem is there isn’t much interesting to say so far. There should be. Both candidates are successful businessmen with significant accomplishments and important things to talk about. And Pennsylvania certainly has some critical policy issues to discuss. The gubernatorial candidates just aren’t talking about them. Yes, Wolf, the Democratic incumbent is leading in the early polls – by double digits according to the RealClearPolitics average. And thanks to the state’s notorious gubernatorial lottery, AKA, the Lieutenant Governor primary, he has ended up with a colorful, if idiosyncratic running mate, the mayor of Braddock. Otherwise, Wolf hasn’t said or done much to hasten the pulse of wouldbe voters. Wagner, on the other hand, does keep raising pulses a little, but mostly by saying or doing inappropriate things that surprise or dismay some of his supporters. Personality wise, Wolf could be a lot more exciting

while Wagner might be a little less. Policy discussions have been all but absent in the campaign so far – while the individual peccadilloes of both candidates have received disproportionate attention. The closest thing to a real policy debate has featured both candidates making maladroit comments that have confused voters about education funding formulas. Consequently, this campaign has mostly centered upon which candidate is richest (or poorest), which is smartest (or dumbest), which is the better businessman (or worse), and which comes from the most (or least) privileged background. At least one Harrisburg columnist has suggested both candidates could be “positioned,” according to their name or job: incumbent Wolf becomes “Wolfpack” while challenger Wagner gets the moniker “Garbageman.” Both efforts at political whimsy reflect the level of discourse so far. So far Gov. Wolf seems determined to keep things at the current fever pitch of excitement by limiting campaign debates to a single one – moderated by game show host Alex Trebek. Tapping the host of Jeopardy to moderate a solitary campaign debate seems appropriate since both candidates now seem in jeopardy of putting the voters of Pennsylvania to sleep–while these same sleepy voters seem in even greater danger of waking up too late to know an election is happening. Candidly, Wolf may be running an uninspiring campaign, but Wagner isn’t a great candidate either. (So far, he has threatened gays, angered labor, and publicly, albeit jocularly, suggested the Russians will help him against Wolf). The polls re-

flect this performance and as does Wagner’s anemic fundraising. Wolf, however, is not making things better. His lackluster campaign is the kind of campaign that incumbents with large leads often run, traveling around the state handing out the state’s largess, while counting on a big Democratic turnout in November to ensure his victory. His strategy is to ignore that there is a contest, implying there are no significant issues to resolve, no significant problems to solve. Alas, the problems are too real, the issues are too clear, and the stakes are too high - even if neither candidate raises them. Here is just a sample: Basics state education, how to pay for it and how much to pay is a burning issue bound to turn into a raging conflagration during the next four years; The state’s chronic longterm fiscal crisis continues, with this year as an exception, as each succeeding year's expenditures exceed revenues amid a state/local tax system arguably the worst in the nation. Both energy policy and environmental policy questions are rushing to the forefront as the national administration’s actions place more responsibility on the states in these areas. Reproductive rights are certain to become state issues again as the U.S. Supreme Court moves to the right. Full and adequate funding for the public pension programs remains unresolved. The next governor will influence the 2021 redrawing of the state’s congressional maps allocating congressional seats for at least the next ten years.

understanding BANKRUPTCY BY MICHAEL A. CIBIK AMERICAN BANKRUPTCY BOARD CERTIFIED uestion: What is a debt-relief agency in bankruptcy-reform law? The term “debt-relief agency” appears in a legal context for the first time in bankruptcy law in the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention & Consumer Protection Act of 2005 [The Act]. The first chapter of this new bankruptcy-reform law can be found at Title 11 U.S.C. 101. This is the General Provisions chapter and it contains definitions of words of art used throughout the Act, and includes the term “debt-relief agency”. Section 101(12A) defines the term “debt-relief agency” to be any person who provides any bankruptcy assistance to an assisted person in return for the payment of money or other valuable consideration, or who is a bankruptcy petition preparer under section 110. Persons who fail to disclose this status are subject to

Q

penalties that could include payment of damages and attorney fees. In Milavetz vs United States, the Supreme Court of the United States was asked to decide whether bankruptcy lawyers had to comply with the requirement to call themselves a debt relief agency. The Court ruled in a unanimous 9-0 decision that the debt-relief agency provisions of the bankruptcy reform act applied to lawyers. Although the phrase contains the word “agency,” the definition clearly refers to any person. You may see and hear media advertisements such as newspaper ads, radio spots, or internet ads where a person refers to oneself as an agency. While that appears to be grammatically incorrect, it is in keeping with the legal definition set forth in the new bankruptcy-reform law. An important note: The same section excludes certain types of persons or organizations from being a debt-relief agency, including officers, directors, employees or agents. Also excluded are certain creditors, nonprofit institutions, and some financial institutions. Authors, publishers, and distributors of books are likewise excluded. A complete list can be found in the statute. Next Week’s Question: Can bankruptcy save your business?


EVERYDAY PEOPLE BY DENISE CLAY HE SAYING has it that no good deed goes unpunished. And then there are the cases where the person for whom the good deed is done winds up in a place that’s even worse, due to some sort of malfeasance that punishment is not only warranted, it’s required. By now, you’ve heard the story of Johnny Bobbitt, a homeless veteran who helped a stranded Kate McClure when she found herself out of gas in Kensington

T

which they later sold, and Bobbitt was afraid that they had gone shopping with the rest of the cash because they refused to give him access to it. He was still on drugs and handing him that kind of money would be asking for trouble, the couple said. Turns out he was right. A pre-owned BMW; several luxury vacations, including a helicopter trip over the Grand Canyon and a trip to Las Vegas; and some highend shopping sprees later, the money was gone. Or at least that’s what the couple told Bobbitt’s lawyer and New Jersey Superior Court Judge Paula T. Dow when the judge demanded that the couple give him – through an account set up through his pro bono attorney from Cozen O’Connor PC – access to the rest. Last week, police went to McClure and D’Amico’s home in Florence, N.J. and seized a whole bunch of (Cont. Page 15)

BY JOE SHAY STIVALA Y NOW we have all duly noted that kids have been sent home from Philly schools due to lack of air conditioning. Few people have given the air-conditioning issue in schools much thought, and maybe school officials may feel that the weather will change in a month, and we will all forget about it (?). U.S. students spend too little time in school by world standards, with summer vacations being too LONG according to The Economist. One thing is certain:

CITY HALL SAM

T

HE CITY OF Philadelphia is like a giant meteor tumbling through space. It has a lot of power and momentum but is completely out of control. It’s been that way for a long time, particularly in the case of the School District. Public education in the city was so out of control that the state took it over. The state maintained control for more than a decade and the number of students attending Philadelphia public schools went down precipitously due to the multiplication of charter schools.

in Police Stations or else- 11 where. Take the strain off the Criminal Justice Center. End TV Arraignments with no attorney for a defendant – often at midnight or wee hours. District Courts were ended by former DA Seth WILLIAMS. A sad scenario is in place here in the birthplace city of liberty. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Linda NORRIS, energy-filled Manayunk committeewoman and public servant. And to Emilio VÁZQUEZ, North Philly Ward Leader and local “ALCALDE.” Get well to Ward Leader George BROOKS…. I regret the loss of Edward S. MUSURAS. Ed was an Army VET who served in Korea and lived in Chester Springs. A 30-year member in my post, now in the post ON HIGH. PROPERTY TAX assessment progress has fared well in towns of Ocean County, N.J., while (Cont. Page 13)

Now the city has a chance to write a new chapter in its public schools’ history. Local control was established and the School Reform Commission was abolished. In its place was set up a Board of Education which has the following members: JULIA DANZY, LETICIA EGEA-HINTON, MALLORY FIX LOPEZ, LEE HUANG, MARIA McCOLGAN, CHRIS McGINLEY, WAYNE WALKER and ANGELA McIVER. See anyone there with political experience? The answer is absolutely not. And public education is one of the most political areas of all government. Showing that inefficiency and indecisiveness is at a razor-sharp edge with the new administration, the district announced that school would start before Labor Day. Then a major heatwave hit just as kids were going to return to class. Schools were closed early for days due to the excessive heat. MAYOR JIM KENNEY

has made a lot of bold moves and he is to be commended for that. But how will he untie the Gordian knot of the tax on new construction bill that’s been sitting on his desk? The bill passed by the hefty margin of 9-8 in City Council. The nine are the people who like to tax business so much that business goes someplace other than Philadelphia. The eight against the tax are those who some have speculated are beholden to a specific labor leader. The exception is ALLAN DOMB, who has correctly pointed out that not only is the tax regressive, it is essentially uncollectible. So the bill is an exercise in futility. It is anti-business yet seeks to gain revenue. Yet the revenue cannot be collected because the bill does not provide appropriate mechanisms. Kenney apparently must make a decision soon or throw it back to Council. Sam thinks he should find a way to propose his own (Cont. Page 15)

where he was panhandling. Bobbitt gave McClure his last $20 for gas; in exchange, McClure and her fiancé, Mark D’Amico, set up a GoFundMe account for him with the goal of raising $10,000 to help him get a home. They raised over $400,000 instead. More than 14,000 kind-hearted souls wanting to help a former Marine down on his luck who showed that chivalry isn’t dead pitched in. But instead of this story having a happy ending, it’s ended up in Burlington County Court, which is where my hometown of Pemberton, and Joint Base Dix/McGuire/Lakehurst is located. I’ll explain why that is relevant in a moment. Bobbitt took McClure and D’Amico to court because despite his having more than $400,000 on paper, he was still making his bread through panhandling. As it turned out, the couple had bought him a camper,

The EXECUTIVE SUITES for city school officials on N. Broad Street are cool and COMFORTABLE for the many big jobs there! With the GOOD NEWS of JUDGES returning to Traffic Court, It may now be TIME for the entry of JUDGES into Parking and Red Light Camera hearings. This corner enclave is located at 9th & Filbert Streets and is known as the Bureau of Administrative Adjudication (BAA). Get this: It is run NOT BY THE COURTS – but the CITY FINANCE DEPARTMENT. You can wonder about your hearing when you question if the department is justice-oriented or MONEY-oriented (?). I do not know if there is an order for workers to be glum or serious there, but I never found it pleasant. I can only hear Dante’s Inferno call, “ABANDON HOPE all ye who enter here.” Along with the TRAFFIC COURT news, it is time to restore District Courts

ONDAY NIGHT, the 21st Ward GOP held its annual fundraiser. WARD LEADER WALT VOGLER was the master of ceremonies. 53RD WARD LEADER GARY GRISAFI’S band, Blu Dogz, entertained the crowd. The room was full of Vogler’s loyal friends, including his numerous committee people. Attendees included US congressional candidate BRYAN LEIB (3rd District) as well as candidates for municipal races in 2019 – CITY COMMISSIONER AL SCHMIDT and a few City

and Republican businessman JOHN CHRIN. You may ask why this race is important to Southeastern Pennsylvania. Because of the redistricting of congressional seats by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court earlier this year favoring Democrats, we might lose a few Republican Congressmen. Picking up this seat may help us in Washington. We might lose PAT MEEHAN’S old district and a few other districts in the Commonwealth are also at risk. Cartwright’s seat was seen as solidly blue and has been thought only his to lose. The Democrats’ overconfidence of their hold on this region may come back to haunt them. Chrin was a very successful financial executive at JPMorgan Chase. Cartwright supporters try to claim that Chrin is a wealthy carpetbagger from New York City. However, he is a 10th-generation Pennsylvanian – this race could well determine the fate of the US House of Representatives.

deserves a full, robust and serious gubernatorial debate on the issues confronting it. Wolf and Wagner are not perfect candidates, nor is our state in ideal shape or our electorate perfectly informed. That is why we schedule

(Cont. From Page 11) Lackawanna County is fighting a suit for reassessment. A columnist wrote a REFRESHING piece on Love Letters to a Covered Bridge, and then a NEEDED piece on a Barrio mom who is fighting alone (while being threatened) to save her son from drugs. A review of social media by the Attorney General’s Office? A recent essay described a second Trump term as one with SUPPRESSED press and social media. THIRD WORLD or coming? The City INSPECTOR GENERAL will look into a City worker tripling her pay. The IG Office has not made headlines of late – after a period of bathing in the public eye. The office seems to have greatly grown in size. I used to meet many former City IGs at the Police Chiefs lunch; they had three employees then. Too many investigative agencies! Not a lot to look into.

I know a woman who wanted them to investigate her STOLEN JELLO from the office fridge! PEOPLE IN NEWS: Rudy GIULIANI keeps telling us how to see an issue – sort of a one-man Supreme Court.... Rahm EMMANUEL won’t run again for mayor of Chicago – sad news from energy man! It is 57 years since the aircraft of Dag Hammarskjöld, U.N. Secretary General, was shot down. Make no mistake: the RUSSKIS did it. In DAG’S pocket was a lesson for some: his Oath of Office. How about Meghan McCAIN’S eulogy to her dad! The FIRE is in her to run for office! QUESTION: Did the Vice President’s office have a role in the New York Times Op-Ed article? The Vice Prez will NEVER be President if TRUMP gets a second term. Impeachment of Trump makes Pence President. The Economist wrote an essay on a possible Trump second term, describing him as lethargic – with the fire gone out.

And now, boys and girls, let me hear you recite the Pledge of Allegiance: “I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands; one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” Since I was a small boy,

two states have been add- 13 ed to our country, and two words have been added to the Pledge of Allegiance: “Under God.” As a beloved comedian of my youth, Red Skelton, said, “Wouldn’t it be a pity if someone said the Pledge of Allegiance is a prayer and should be eliminated from schools, too?”

Skelton later wrote down, and eventually recorded, his recollection of this lecture. It is followed by an observation of his own. Me – an individual; a committee of one. Pledge – Dedicate all of my worldly goods to give
