Since 2010, Shofuso Japanese House and Garden has explicitly stated on its website that service animals are not allowed in the house, citing the structureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historic nature. However, no outside consultation was sought before making this decision.

Located in West Fairmount Park, the historic landmark recently unveiled new programming and art installations. All are welcome, except, that is, service animals in the house portion of Shofuso.

Asked Questions, it states that animals are not allowed at Shofuso Japanese House and Garden and service animals are only allowed in the garden. The websiteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statement reads: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pets are not allowed at Shofuso; service animals who have been trained to work or perform certain tasks are allowed. Due to the historic nature of the house, service animals are only permitted in the garden. For more information, please see Title II of the [Americans with Disabilities Act] ADA.â&#x20AC;? Upon review, the ADA Title II does not

clarify, explain or explicitly justify the reasoning for the partial exclusion of service animals. Title II of the ADA states: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Access to areas of a public entity. Individuals with disabilities shall be permitted to be accompanied by their service animals in all areas of a public entity's facilities where members of the public, participants in services, programs or activities, or invitees, as relevant, are allowed to go.â&#x20AC;? This is not to be confused with therapy or emotional support animals, which are not considered service animals and protected as such under federal law. Currently, the ADA states that service animals may only be dogs, with an occasional exception of miniature horses. In terms of permissible exemptions, a public entity may only ask a person to remove their service animal from the premises if â&#x20AC;&#x153;(1) The animal is out of control and the animal's handler does not take effective action to control it; or (2) The animal is not housebroken.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We certainly want to make the historic house and site available to everyone, said Kim Andrews, executive director of Japan America Society of Greater Philadelphia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As we understand, having service animals inside the house, because the actual materials inside the house, would be damaged by the claws. We have the tamei matts and wood. We have guides that are available to walk around the house. Ninety-ďŹ ve percent of the house is visible, literally visible from outside the house in the garden.â&#x20AC;? Andrews said she made the service animal rule upon joining the organization in 2010. When asked, Andrews said she did not receive outside consultation before making the decision. Instead, she explained it was from her reading of the ADAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policies on service animals as well as its section on historic preservation. While the ADAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s section on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Existing Facilitiesâ&#x20AC;? does exempt public entities from â&#x20AC;&#x153;any action that would threaten or destroy the historic signiďŹ cance of an historic property,â&#x20AC;? the section is primarily discussing the physical changes needed to an existing space to make it ADA compliant. Neither the ADAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s section on historic preservation nor the section on service animals directly mentions the other. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Designation as an â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;historic landmarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; does not automatically permit Shofuso Japanese House and Garden to exclude service animals,â&#x20AC;? Communications Director Rachel Hooper of the Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations and Fair Housing Commission explained to PW in an email correspondence. The Pennsylvania Human Rights Commission (PHRC) states similar language to the ADA, underscoring the illegal nature to discriminate against those using a service animal. In a PHRC document, it reads: â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Pennsylvania you have the right to live, work, and learn free from illegal discrimination. Under the Pennsylvania Human Rela-

Danique Masingill, Jason Haag and Haagâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s service animal Axel visited back in September for the launch of the Philly chapter of Leashes of Valor, an organization that places service animals with war veterans. tions Act, it is illegal to discriminate against individuals who use support or guide animals for a disability, or against trainers or handlers of support or guide animals. Many people with disabilities need support animals to perform their jobs or basic life tasks.â&#x20AC;? According to the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act, Philadelphia is one of the municipalities that have enacted local laws that govern certain types of service animal access. However, Hooper explained that as a private nonproďŹ t, Shofusoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s service animal access would fall under the federal ADA regulation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ADA requires State and local government agencies, businesses, and nonproďŹ t organizations (covered entities) that provide goods or services to the public to make â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;reasonable modiďŹ cationsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in their policies, practices, or procedures when necessary to accommodate people with disabilities,â&#x20AC;? said Hooper. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shofuso Japanese House and Garden is a private nonproďŹ t that provides goods or services to the public.r The service animal rules fall under this general principle. Accordingly, entities that have a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;no petsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; policy generally must modify the policy to allow service animals into their facilities.â&#x20AC;? The ADAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s FAQ states that â&#x20AC;&#x153;If admitting service animals would fundamentally alter the nature of a service or program, service animals may be prohibited.â&#x20AC;? It then clariďŹ es that â&#x20AC;&#x153;In most settings, the presence of a service animal will not result in a fundamental alteration. However, there are some exceptions.â&#x20AC;? The following examples of â&#x20AC;&#x153;exceptionsâ&#x20AC;? listed in the FAQ refer to safety and programming, but not to the physical structure of a building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For example, at a boarding school, service animals could be restricted from a speciďŹ c area of a dormitory

3+,/$'(/3+,$:((./<&20

reserved speciďŹ cally for students with allergies to dog dander. At a zoo, service animals can be restricted from areas where the animals on display are the natural prey or natural predators of dogs, where the presence of a dog would be disruptive, causing the displayed animals to behave aggressively or become agitated. They cannot be restricted from other areas of the zoo.â&#x20AC;? There is â&#x20AC;&#x153;deďŹ nitely a gray area,â&#x20AC;? said Danique Masingill, co-founder and president of Leashes of Valor that provides service animals to war veterans, free of cost. A U.S. Navy veteran, Masingill argued that a major setback in service animal acceptance is the lack of regulation that allows for discriminatory loopholes as well as people to abuse the system, posing pets as service animals and purchasing false identiďŹ cation badges and vests. Under the ADA, service animals do not require certiďŹ cation, documentation, a badge or a vest. When it is not clear whether a dog is in fact a service animal, employees may only ask two questions: â&#x20AC;&#x153;(1) is the dog a service animal required because of a disability? and (2) what work or task has the dog been trained to perform?â&#x20AC;? Any further inquiry could violate a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right to privacy about their health. An individual may train their own service animal, but the dog must be able to perform â&#x20AC;&#x153;tasksâ&#x20AC;? that directly relate to a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disability. On one hand, this creates more equitable access for those who cannot afford service dog training, purchase an already trained service dog or wait for a nonproďŹ t to match them with a subsidized or free dog. On the other hand, the process forfeits standardization without the requirement of federally supervised training organizations. Masingill explained that spaces, such as grocery markets and airports, have taken on additional protocols to

deter service animal fraud: â&#x20AC;&#x153;These additional stipulations are sometimes necessary and currently due to the amount of fraud in the service dog space, the burden of proof for legitimacy lies with the handler." Masingillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partner at Leashes of Valor, Executive Chief OfďŹ cer Jason Haag, knows ďŹ rsthand about service animal discrimination. Haag made national headlines in 2015 when American Airlines refused him and his service dog, Axel, from boarding a ďŹ&#x201A;ight. Even though Haag had abided by the airlineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rules, which differ from federal law, he was still accused of trying to pass off a pet as a service animal. Haag is a Marine Corps veteran who was wounded in action. Dealing with severe post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI), the Purple Heart recipient received Axel from K9s for Warriors. They were on their way home to Virginia after attending the American Humane Association Hero Dog Award ceremony in California, where Axel was named winner of the Service Dog category. American Airlines issued an apology after reviewing the matter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Axel saved my life,â&#x20AC;? Haag said during the launch event of Leashes of Valorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newly formed Philly group at WeWork at 1900 Market St. back in September. The former Camp Pendleton Marine captain revealed he dealt with violent ďŹ&#x201A;ashbacks and outbursts, was on a number of medications and had a drinking problem that was creating an unsafe situation for himself as well as wife and children. Haag referred to Axel as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;medical device,â&#x20AC;? trained to, among other tasks, lick, pull or even intentionally bite Haag during blackout ďŹ&#x201A;ashbacks that can occur at home and in public. As a national landmark, Shofuso is not alone in its stance against fullaccess to service animals, according to Masingill. "I have experienced â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;push-backâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at certain historical sights, especially battleďŹ elds and coinciding cemeteries or burial grounds,â&#x20AC;? said Masingill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is an additional conversation to ensure the area is treated with respect.â&#x20AC;? From PWâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s review of some of Philadelphiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other historic placesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; website, none shared Shofusoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s explicit clause denying access to service animals. However, exact language varied on public websites and some did not refer to service animals at all.

The Independence National Historical Park includes a general statement of inclusion that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Service animals are permitted in all park buildings.â&#x20AC;? But the Rodin Museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website only mentions â&#x20AC;&#x153;guide dogsâ&#x20AC;? being allowed in the museum, one speciďŹ c type of service animal. Service animals can be trained as alert dogs, mobility assistance dogs and more. Another museum, but not under the historic registrar, the Barnes Foundation, made sure to publicize that service animals must be â&#x20AC;&#x153;wellbehavedâ&#x20AC;? if they are to be welcome â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a stipulation already established under the ADA. Andrews clariďŹ ed about the Japanese house in a subsequent email that â&#x20AC;&#x153;The preservation requirements of Shofuso are much more stringent than those of other historic sites in the city because of the nature of these materials.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;To preserve the ďŹ&#x201A;ooring, we do not put chairs, tables, signs, or any other objects directly on any of the ďŹ&#x201A;oor surfaces because they are so easily gouged, scratched, and damaged. We also sweep the ďŹ&#x201A;ooring multiple times throughout each day to eliminate any debris that could damage the ďŹ&#x201A;oors,â&#x20AC;? said Andrews of the precautionary measures taken for the preservation of the space. Andrews also explained that visitors must wear socks or peds before entering the house. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Guests who step from the veranda into the garden in their socks must return to the house entrance and replace their socks or peds with fresh ones to prevent damage to the ďŹ&#x201A;ooring,â&#x20AC;? she wrote. At the Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival of Greater Philadelphia festival in April, PW noticed this rule was not strictly enforced with some visitors going barefoot, wearing their own dirty socks and a few even wearing shoes. During the original interview with Andrews, speciďŹ c questions went unanswered about possible alternatives to ensure no damage would be done to the infrastructure, such as a requirement for service animals to wear dog booties or having paw grooming inspection before entering the house portion. Andrews said she would be willing to change or modify the policy if it needed to comply with the law. Q

Force of nature

Singer Storm Large joins the Philly POPS for three days of classic musical hits BY ANDREA CANTOR

W

hen Storm Large was a kid, she considered herself â&#x20AC;&#x153;a fat, punk rocker, loud mouth, asshole runaway and kind of a dirtbag.â&#x20AC;? But she also knew she had one talent, an undeniable set of pipes that made even the parents at her third-grade recitals go, â&#x20AC;&#x153;holy shit.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a gift that made people smile,â&#x20AC;? Large told Philadelphia Weekly during a recent interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one was happy to see me when I was a kid. But I had this thing that I could do that would make people happy to [hear] me. That was love for me.â&#x20AC;? Still brash and bold in the best sense, the 49-year-old singer has come a long way since the days of elementary school productions. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;very late bloomerâ&#x20AC;? gained national attention as a ďŹ nalist on CBSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; show Rock Star: Supernova in 2006. Performing solo and with the band Pink Martini, Large has stunned crowds with her killer vocals and evocative interpretations of classic hits. Large will now sing many of those same tunes alongside the Philly POPS in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Storm Large: A Crazy Kind of Love,â&#x20AC;? Nov. 9-11. In a fusion of rock, punk, metal, pop and jazz with a cabaret-esque execution, Large will take the stage with Philly POPSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 65-piece orchestra, conducted by Michael Krajewski, and perform a medley of reinterpreted songs from Led Zeppelin, Elton John, George Michael and more. Receiving praise and that long-sought-for validation from a strong fanbase and reviews, Largeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s childhood still rears its head. It was a troubling past that she revealed in her memoir Crazy Enough, published in 2012 by Simon and Schuster, which was named Oprahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Book of the Week. Large also transformed the memoir into a musical that had a sold-out 21-week streak at the Portland Center Stage and then a cabaret, performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Adelaide Festival in Australia and Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pub in New York. In the memoir, Large details her life growing up in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s in Southborough, Mass., her relationship to her mother who suffered from manic depression, requiring multiple hospitalizations, and her need to please her father. Large explained to PW that she was also sexu-

3+,/$'(/3+,$:((./<&20

ally assaulted as a child, but people silenced her when she tried to come forward, relegating the attacks to â&#x20AC;&#x153;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just what guys do.â&#x20AC;? Large coped by turning to drugs, sex and punk rock â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a music genre she found welcomed tough, angry and talented women. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was desperately lonely and desperately sad and I would have loved to have been anybody else, anybody else to have an easier time,â&#x20AC;? Large recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[But no matter who hurt me, I knew] youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to want my mother fucking autograph one day. I don't know what that was, because I had zero evidence that I was going to amount to anything. I had zero evidence that I was even going to survive my teenage years.â&#x20AC;? Without much to ride on, something in Largeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;heartâ&#x20AC;? drove her, wanting to show the naysayers wrong. She went onto graduate from New Yorkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s American Academy of Dramatic Arts in 1989 and then played in a number of bands, including Storm & Her Dirty Mouth and then Storm & the Balls. When ďŹ rst hitting the professional music scene, Large explained she set a â&#x20AC;&#x153;really low barâ&#x20AC;? for herself, but as long as she could make someone, anyone happy through her music then that was enough. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I started getting on stage and singing professionally, even in the dirty, shitty clubs and playing for beer and hot dogs, I was like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I'm probably not going to be famous because I'm not pretty, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not cool,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Large recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;But at least I will have someone to have sex with, I'll have something to drink, get a place to stay probably.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; It was really that rudimentary.â&#x20AC;? Then Rock Star: Supernova came, fast-tracking her to stardom. Throughout her career, Large has channeled her hardships through performance, honing her craft and learning to reafďŹ rm her own self-worth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Artists] are storytellers of culture. We call truth to power â&#x20AC;Ś and we're the winners of the hearts and minds,â&#x20AC;? Large said of the importance of arts, an outlet that pulled her through the dredge of life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;... Making a thousand strangers in a dark room understand a broken heart and understand that they're not alone in the world. There is value in that. It can't be monetized, but it can't be denied either.â&#x20AC;? When asked about her greatest accomplishment, Large could not pin it to just one memory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There's a lot of great things I've gotten to do that I'm so fucking grateful for. I can't even believe I got to sing at Carnegie Hall. I can't believe that I led a Conga line around Royal Albert Hall. I can't believe that I was on Ellen Degeneres' television show. I can't believe I gave a piggyback ride to Tommy Lee,â&#x20AC;? said Large. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can't believe half of the shit I've gotten to do, it's been marvelous. It's been amazing. Miraculous, if you knew where I came from. So the best is yet to come.â&#x20AC;? Q A Crazy Kind of Love | Nov. 9: 8pm. Nov. 1011: 3pm. $35-$153.

Philadelphians made sure they were heard on Nov. 6, as the city experienced record voter turnout for the midterm elections.

Finally fed up Philadelphia nets record voter turnout for divisive midterm election BY ANDREA CANTOR

S

imilar to the primary elections in May, a heavy downpour plagued the Nov. 6 midterm elections. But despite the rain and not being a presidential election, the midterm elections garnered record high voter turnout, speciďŹ cally in Philadelphia. James Thompson, 57, has been working security at the Land Title Building in Center City for the past 10 years. He said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never seen a higher turnout at its polling place, located in the lobby, with the exception of President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s election.

Megan Schneider was one of many. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always vote in the morning before work and I am usually one of ďŹ ve people, but this morning there was a line out the door,â&#x20AC;? said Schneider, 36 from East Passyunk, a physician assistant at Drexel University. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had to wait at least 30-45 minutes until I got my turn to vote, and there was a long line of people after me.â&#x20AC;? Holding up the lines even longer were mechanical and systems issues at a number of Philadelphia polling places. According to a public release from the Pennsylvania Election Protection Coalition, among the issues for

Some voters arrived to find polling places closed, machines broken or text warnings of early closings, but it still didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t slow a dominant turnout on the rainiest of Tuesdays. Philadelphia: 18 precincts experienced broken or malfunctioning machines and seven polling stations did not open on time. The coalition also reported there were gen-

eral reports polling places were inaccessible due to lack of parking or locked entrances. In addition, there were reports of texts that erroneously stating polls were shutting down earlier than the scheduled 8pm close. Pat Toy, judge of elections at the Atria Center City Senior Living polling place, explained that from her perspective there were no signs of voter suppression at her station. She did note that a couple of peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s names were not in the book, but she rectiďŹ ed the situation by giving them a provisional ballot. Toy said she was unsure how and why the votersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; names were not included in the book. There were some who cast their votes out of sheer civic duty, such as 90-year-old Beverly Samuels, who said she always votes, regardless of it being a minor or major election. But while Samuels did not ďŹ nd any particular importance to this election, others had one clear reason for coming out. Call it the Donald J. Trump effect. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He has made this election about him, and people are coming to say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;yes, we are with himâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;no, we are not with him,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Sarah Clark Stuart, a volunteer for the Democratic committee at the Atria Center City Senior Living polling place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This election is a big report card on Trumpâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s record so far.â&#x20AC;? Russel Megan, a former volunteer with the Democratic party, said at the senior center the turnout was particularly impressive, since the ballot was already a lock. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The chances are no matter what, Tom Wolf would have won anyway and chances are Bob Casey would have won anyway and the rest of the ballot here is uncontested, to have this many people come out is absolutely incredible,â&#x20AC;? said Megan. Wolf and Casey did indeed retain their ofďŹ ces. Democrats took the House while Republicans maintained control over the Senate. When asked for comment, the Republican committee volunteer at Atria Center City declined. Stuart and Megan also mentioned the surge in the young vote, and that they saw many students from the Moore College of Arts, located across the street, coming over to cast ballots. Stuart did note she saw higher numbers from the students than when the polling place was located inside the college. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel that the younger generation might have been a bit excluded in the last election. However, I feel like they have really stepped it up this election,â&#x20AC;? said Bindi Patel, 44, a Center City resident. For Wharton School graduate student Shanel Fields, 33, seeing the rise from interested younger voters has been â&#x20AC;&#x153;encouraging.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very important to contribute to your own destiny and have inďŹ&#x201A;uence over politics and how our world is run,â&#x20AC;? said Fields.

Election roundup Taking a closer look at the smaller races on a major night in American politics COMPILED BY PHILADELPHIA WEEKLY AND NORTHEAST TIMES STAFF

I

n what was Philadelphiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most intense voter turnout for a midterm election, it should be noted many of the smaller races within the shifting of tides also held a massive effect on said shift. As it pertained to the Greater Philadelphia Region and the state as a whole, the big news of the night was that Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf and Lt. Gov. running mate John Fetterman cruised to victory over Republicans Scott Wagner and Jeff Bartos with 58 percent of the vote. In the race for

 129(0%(5

the Senate, Democratic Sen. Bob Casey Jr. prevailed with 56 percent over Republican U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta (43 percent), followed by Libertarian Dale Kerns and the Green Partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Neal Gale. Additionally across the state, four women in Mary Gay Scanlon, Chrissy Houlahan, Madeleine Dean and Susan Wild make up the largest number of female delegates from Pennsylvania to be heading to Washington in January. Locally however, hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some news in the aftermath of it

all that may have gotten missed. Six local House Democrats were unopposed on Tuesday. They were Reps. Kevin Boyle, Mike Driscoll, Ed Neilson, Jason Dawkins, Jared Solomon and Isabella Fitzgerald. Also unopposed was state Sen. Tina Tartaglione (D-2nd dist.). U.S. Rep. Brendan Boyle, a Democrat, won in the newly drawn 2nd Congressional District, piling up 79 percent of the vote against Republican David Torres. Democrat Joe Hohenstein easily won the 177th Legislative District race, defeating Republican Patty-Pat Kozlowski on Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It feels good,â&#x20AC;? said Hohenstein, who celebrated at the Harmonia Club in Bridesburg. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought it would be a long, hard ďŹ ght, and it was.â&#x20AC;? Hohenstein, an immigration lawyer from Northwood, took more than 59 percent of the vote in a race expected to be closer. He took almost 45 percent of the vote two years ago against Republican Rep. John Taylor, who is retiring after 34 years in ofďŹ ce. He easily won a four-way primary in May. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With this type of victory, I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it by myself,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was done by a broader group of people.â&#x20AC;? As for Kozlowski, the longtime community activist and former aide to City Councilwoman Joan Krajewski, she did well in her home area of Bridesburg in the 45th Ward, but Hohenstein won elsewhere. She left a voicemail for the winner, saying simply, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Please take care of the neighborhoods. Please take care of the people.â&#x20AC;? Kozlowski said it was too much to overcome the Democratic voter-registration advantage. But sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right back to her activism work, telling the Northeast Times of plans to assist in the cleaning of Campbell Square as part of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Love Your Park day. She said she had to live in Philadelphia when she worked for the city, but wants to live here anyway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very proud of what Patty-Pat did in this race,â&#x20AC;? said Republican Rep. John Taylor, who attended Kozlowskiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She represented herself, family and neighborhood with grace and dignity.â&#x20AC;? Hohenstein said he will keep his promises to offer extended ofďŹ ce hours, Saturday hours and mobile ofďŹ ce hours, and to attend civic association meetings and offer good constituent services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to prove myself,â&#x20AC;? he said. State Rep. Martina White (R-170th dist.) defeated Democrat Mike Doyle with almost 58 percent of the vote in a race in which she was expected to cruise. White was endorsed by FOP Lodge 5, FireďŹ ghters and Paramedics Local 22, the Pennsylvania State Education Association, International Union of Painters and Allied Trades District Council 21, the Philadelphia Building Trades Council, SteamďŹ tters 420, Pennsylvania State Troopers, Boilermakers 13, Sprinkler Fitters 692, Sheet Metal Workers 19, Operating Engineers 542, the Pennsylvania Association of Realtors, Elevator Constructors 5 and Transport Workers Union. Rep. Tom Murt (R-152nd dist.) beat Democrat Daryl Boling with almost 56 percent of the vote. Murt took 58 percent in the Bustleton part of the district, which is based in Eastern Montgomery County. A city bond question that read, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Should the City of Philadelphia borrow One Hundred Eighty One Million Dollars ($181,000,000.00) to be spent for and toward capital purposes as follows: Transit; Streets and Sanitation; Municipal Buildings; Parks, Recreation and Museums; and Economic and Community Development?â&#x20AC;? passed with 72 percent.

Earlier this year, the Philadelphia Insectarium and ButterďŹ&#x201A;y Pavilion suffered a tremendous loss. The citadel of creepy crawlies was robbed of over $40,000 worth of, well, creepy crawlies. The dead ones. Not living. But still! Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of preserved insects to replace, and without them the Philadelphia Insectarium isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really much of an insectarium. So come out to this talk by Dr. John Cambridge and give back to this local Philly landmark. | 7pm. Donation. 530 South St. Tattooed Mom. atlasobscura.com/benefit

TurnUp to BailOut 2

T

he world is a strange, scary place â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and not just because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still fending off the ďŹ nal reverberations of Halloween. No, if it seems thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more hate than ever, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just you or your perception. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anger, jealousy and fear lurking just around every corner. Luckily for the rest of us, Circle of Hope Church is working to change at least some small part of that. TurnUp to BailOut is Circle of Hopeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attempt to bridge the divide between country and culture, to remain committed to the community and ensure that black families, especially during an important time like the holidays, remain whole. Featuring music from Kingsley Ibeneche, Lauren Scott, Reef the Lost Cauze, Brandon Evan Moulden, Devon Davis and Bethlehem Roberson, all proceeds from this party-with-a-purpose go toward the Philadelphia Community Bail Fundâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign to bail out black mothers and fathers incarcerated during the holiday season. So if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re gonna get turnt this Saturday, maybe do it in the name of a good and just cause. Q TurnUp to BailOut 2 | Nov. 10. Free. Circle of Hope Church. 1125 S.

Kamasi Washington isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like a lot of other musicians.

No, what sets Kamasi Washington apart from other artists and musicians is his intent. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not ďŹ xing problems. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also not contributing to them.

The Amazing Sex Secret of a 78 Year-Oldâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Italian Stallionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;My husband shocked me with more sexual passion than heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had in years. He took me in the bedroom like we were newlyweds and gave me a night Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never forgetâ&#x20AC;? The Inside Story on Great Sex! This week I got a letter from a reader about a â&#x20AC;&#x153;little secretâ&#x20AC;? that has made her sex life with her husband absolutely explosive! (Those Texas women are spicy!) Tina writes: Dear Karen, For years my husband and I had a great love life. He was sexy and passionate and so conďŹ dent. But when he reached his 50s, he started to struggle in the bedroom. The few times we did have sex, his erection was deďŹ nitely softer, leaving us both unsatisďŹ ed. He tried every product out there; prescriptions, creams, testosterone boosters, enhancement pillsâ&#x20AC;Ś but nothing worked. I know this is terrible, but I found myself thinking â&#x20AC;&#x153;My strong, passionate husband has become a sexual weakling.â&#x20AC;? I had no idea it would all turn around in just 3 weeks! Last month, he came home from a business trip in Europe and shocked me with more sexual energy and passion than heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had in years. Hard as a rock, he tossed me around the bedroom like we were newlywedsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and gave me a night Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never forget! It was incredible â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and so exciting! He ďŹ&#x201A;at wore me out that night and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been like that ever since. His erections are harder than ever, and the best part is his climax is so long and powerful, they spark the most intense, toe-curling â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;momentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever had! So here we are, enjoying the best sex of our livesâ&#x20AC;Ś in our late 50â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s! When I asked my husband what caused such a dramatic change, he said on his trip he stayed in a hotel room next to an Italian nutritionist and his wife. Through the walls, he heard them passionately making love every single night, and sometimes again in the morning. One afternoon, he saw the husband leave their room and he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe it. The man looked much too old to be having so much sex. My husband couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help himself, so he asked the man his secret. The nutritionist smiled, introduced himself as Vito, and in broken English told my husband that he was 78 years old, his wife 65, and that after 32 years of marriage, their sex life was still fantastico! Then he pulled a small

pack of tablets from his satchel, gave it to my husband, and said â&#x20AC;&#x153;These come from a small village in the north where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re made naturally from the most densely rich sexual extracts on earth. Believe me, they will make you harder than you can imagine and give you a climax like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never felt before!â&#x20AC;? Then he laughed and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll become an Italian Stallion like me!â&#x20AC;? Italian Stallion is right! These past several weeks have been a dream. My husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desire for me is through the roof. He takes me whenever he wants, and he even wakes up most days with a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;morning salute!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; like he did years ago. I love it! Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sexual powerhouse, beaming with conďŹ dence, and our marriage is stronger than ever. Karen, hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m writing you. The pack of tablets is about to run out and we both desperately want more. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve looked everywhere but canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ďŹ nd them. Do you know anything about these â&#x20AC;&#x153;super-sex tabletsâ&#x20AC;? from Europe and how to get some here in the States? Sincerely, Tina C., Fort Worth, TX Tina, you and the rest of my readers are in luck because I do know about these secret European sex tablets. Ever wonder why men from Italy, Spain, Greece, and all over Europe are famous worldwide for staying energized, passionate and sexually active well into their golden years? Well, for decades, these men have relied on a unique blossom extract called Provarin to enhance their sexual power and performance. Milled on the fertile northern plains, Provarinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s key extracts are cultivated organically along the Baltic Sea where pure seeds, nutrient-rich soil, and perfect weather conditions combine to deliver maximum sexual potency.

The best part from a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perspective, as you well know, is the extreme hardness and on-going power is enough to send us over the blissful edge! I found out about Provarin a few years ago when I was dating a cowboy from Wyoming. He took Provarin every morning and believe me, that good olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; boy sure rocked my nights! All-natural and safe to take, Provarin is still a well-kept secret for those in the know - and they like to keep it that way. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an old-school, family business and product is still harvested by hand twice a year. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seek publicity or do any advertising. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to. Long-time customers and word of mouth ensures their limited stock is sold out every year. They do have a distributer here in the U.S. and a spokesman told me they are proud to produce the highest quality product for men and couples. He went on to say that if any of my readers call today and mention this article, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get a one-time 50% discount and free priority shipping! Wow, so there you go, Tina - and the rest of you readers! Just give them a call today and mention this article. The number is 1-800-566-1546. Arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you glad you asked?

Finely ground and pressed into tablets, Provarin has a legendary reputation throughout the European sexual underground for fueling extremely hard erections and a long, intense climax. As Giovanni from Milan put it, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like bedroom rocket fuel - especially for us older guys!â&#x20AC;?

Come out to Yards Brewing on Monday night to ďŹ nd out why thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all a bunch of bullshit, and that some of the best chefs in the city â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the world â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are women. | 2pm. $30.

Jazz 50 at UArts

Fifty years of Jazz Education. Or, as we at Philly Weekly like to call it, Jazzucation. Edujazz. Jazzy-cation. The Education Formerly Known as Jazz. Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all of the above.

Night Skies in the Observatory

This monthly stargazing event is led by an in-house astronomer and leads you through the celestial objects high in the sky. Or space. But then arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we, here on Earth, hurtling through space at all times? So arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t those very same objects moving as well?

You Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Kill a Poet

We gotta be honest. The name of this event kind of makes it sound like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re challenging people to, ya know, try to kill them. Now, of course we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the case, and we get the whole, â&#x20AC;&#x153;rejection and ridicule havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just toughened me up, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made me impossible to hurt.â&#x20AC;? But still. It sounds like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taunting all the rest of us mere mortals. Wait â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are poets really just Highlanders, and there can be only one?

Give More Love

Give More Love is part speed dating, part community service. Instead of yelling at someone across a cocktail table for 30 seconds, participate in a meaningful community project as you fumble at all the other lonely hopefuls around you.

Holy. Smokes.

SAVAGE LOVE

What ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t broke DAN SAVAGE

I

â&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been spending a lot of time lately thinking about myself and my sexuality and my romantic self. I can log on and easily ďŹ nd someone to fuck. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a bear-built top guy. There are ladies in my life who choose to share their beds with me. I can ďŹ nd subs to tie up and torture. (Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m kinky and bi.) What I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ďŹ nd is a long-term partner. The problem is that after I fuck/ sleep with/torture someone, my brain stops seeing them as sexual and moves them into the friend category. I have friends that I used to fuck regularly, that now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a chore to get it up for. Sure, the sex still feels good, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not passionate. And when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all said and done, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;friendâ&#x20AC;? category in my brain. Some of them have suggested being more, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve recoiled. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing wrong with them, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re friends, not potential partners. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m 32, and my siblings are married and having kids, and the people I grew up with are married and having kids. And here I am not able to ďŹ nd a long-term signiďŹ cant other. Am I broken? Should I just accept that, at least for me, sexual partners and domestic/romantic partners will always be separate categories? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Always Alone What if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not like most everyone else? What if this is just how your sexuality works? What if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re wired â&#x20AC;&#x201C; emotionally, romantically, sexually â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for intense but brief sexual connections that blossom into wonderful friendships? And what if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been tricked into thinking youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re broken because the kind of successful long-term relationships your siblings and friends have are celebrated and the kind of successful short-term relationships you have are stigmatized? If your siblings and friends want to have the kinds of relationships theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and its possible some do not â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they will feel no inner conďŹ&#x201A;ict about their choices while simultaneously being showered with praise for their choices. But what are they really doing? Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing what they want,

3+,/$'(/3+,$:((./<&20

theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing what makes them happy, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing what works for them romantically, emotionally, and sexually. And what are you doing? Maybe youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing what you want, AA, maybe youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing what could make you happy. So why doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it make you happy? Maybe because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been made to feel broken by a culture that holds up one relationship model â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the partnered and preferably monogamous pair â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and insists that this model is the only healthy and whole option, and that anyone who goes a different way, fucks a different way, or relates a different way is broken. Now, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible you are broken, of course, but anyone could be broken. You could be broken, I could be broken, your married siblings and friends could be broken. (Regarding your siblings and friends: Not everyone who marries and has kids wanted marriage and kids. Some no doubt wanted it, AA, but others succumbed to what was expected of them.) But hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a suggestion for something I want you to try, something that might make you feel better because it could very well be true: Try to accept that, for you, sexual partners and domestic/romantic partners might always be separate, and that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re broken. If that self-acceptance makes you feel whole, AA, then you have your answer. I might make a different suggestion if your brief-but-intense sexual encounters left a lot of hurt feelings in their wake. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the case. You hook up with someone a few times, you share an intense sexual experience, and you feel a brief romantic connection to them. And when those sexual and romantic feelings subside, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not left with a string of bitter exes and enemies, but with a large and growing circle of good friends. Which leads me to believe that even if you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t doing what everyone else is doing, AA, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re clearly doing something right. P.S. Another option if you do want to get married someday: a companionate marriage to one of your most intimate friends â&#x20AC;&#x201C; someone like you, AA, who also sees potential life partners and potential sex partners as two distinct categories with no overlap â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and all the Grindr hookups and BDSM sessions you like with one-offs who become good friends.

What They Are Saying: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coming from a Real Estate Family, needless to say my family was very upset when I decided to list our Home with Kathy & Patrick. They were right on the minute with price and marketing, we got exactly what they said. After all was said and done it was worth the family rift. They got us $300,000 more than the other 3 agents we interviewed told us we could get. We got well over $1 Million in 1 Week. We may not have Sold it the same day or got 5 offers but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tell you we got a lot more than we ever thought we would.â&#x20AC;? - A Very SatiďŹ ed Seller
