Rothman Orthopedic Cabin which is decorated to look like a rustic ski chalet,” she said during our interview. Suraci said the cabin, where you can find holiday refreshments and a cozy place to rest and socialize between the many activities available, is ‘perfect for refueling” between events and activities. “We have over 43 local vendors who are on site this year selling handmade jewelry, art work, clothing, home goods, everything you can imagine and it’s really exciting to have those vendors at the park because it’s 35 percent minority businesses,” she said. Not to mention that 70% are woman owned businesses.

Ryan argues “no jurist should be able to hold office indefinitely and 20 years is long enough.” “This amendment would put more power in the hands of the citizens of this Commonwealth by enabling voters to decide whether or not to limit the terms of our judges and justices,” he said in a statement.

features at Dilworth, can we? “One of the biggest, most exciting aspects of winter at Dilworth is our Deck The Halls Light Show,” said Suraci. “That is projected on the West facade of City Hall and animates the cities architecture and sculptures.”

The lights run on a non-stop loop beginning 5:00 pm every night and will do so until January 1st. “So, if you’re in the park, you just look up at City Hall, you’ll see lights, you’ll hear music – it’s really beautiful if you haven’t had a chance to see it,” she said.

Just one question, if you haven’t had a chance to see it, what are you waiting for? All programs are weather permitting and subject to change. Dilworth Park is located at 1 S. 15th St., on the west side of City Hall. Want to learn more? Visit

win over a top ranked team, the best in school history. Even before the game started, the Scarlet Knights had a moment of silence for a key member of the 1983 men’s basketball team. His name was Clarence “Eggy” Tillman who played high school basketball at West Philadelphia High. Tillman was one of the top contributors to the magical run that Rutgers made during the 1982-83 season. The Scarlet Knights had finished that season with a 23-8 record. They made a run to the Sweet 16. They made it to the second round of the NCAA Tournament after defeating Louisiana 60-53. Tillman played three seasons for the Scarlet Knights as he averaged 11.7 points per game during his time in Piscataway, New Jersey. Before Rutgers played Purdue, the men’s basketball team held a moment of silence for the 6-foot-8 forward who played his heart out for the Rutgers men basketball program. It seems that moment of silence sparked the Rutgers men’s basketball team to pull off their upset. Back in 1978, Tillman played in the first McDonald’s All-American Game at the Philadelphia Spectrum. The talented Speedboys’ star became the team’s AllTime leading scorer in West Philadelphia High history. He finished his high school basketball career with 1,752 points. After his graduation from West Philadelphia High, Clarence “Eggy” Tillman played college basketball at the University of Kentucky. When Tillman finished his freshman year, he trans-

ferred to Rutgers University where he became one of the top scorers on the team. In his senior year, Tillman led the Scarlet Knights to the Sweet 16. In that game, the Scarlet Knights lost to St. John by a score, 66-55. Clarence Tillman was the top scorer. In the game, he played 25 minutes and led his team with 16 points. Once his college basketball career was over, Tillman played professional basketball in Europe, South America and the Caribbean. He finished his pro basketball career as a great shooter and decent rebounder. Today, Clarence Tillman can no longer tell his own incredible story. The legendary West Philadelphia High basketball star passed away on Sunday, December 5. Tillman was 60-yearsold. He passed away at his home after a long fight with illness. It’s unclear what exactly caused his death. Back in 2017, many of his high school teammates gathered together to help him out. They set up a Go-Fund-Me page so he could get a handicap scooter. His team-

mates helped him raised over $10,000 to purchase one. Tillman needed a scooter to get him around to different places. Clarence Tillman was thankful for what his teammates did for him. His teammates knew he couldn’t do the things he used to do. When he received his scooter, Tillman and his teammates gathered for lunch and had a great celebration. During that time, the former West Philadelphia High basketball star was battling many physical ailments. It was hard for him to walk around and travel to different places. At his home, a stairway railing was built by two of his high school teammates. Vincent Ross and Greg McKinney built a railing that stretched from the basement to Tillman’s bedroom. They took it upon themselves to help one of their own. The railing made life easier for Tillman. The men did a good job building the railing inside his home. It was a good deed he would never forget. From January 25, 1976 through February 19, 1978, the West Philadelphia High Basketball team claimed the

Pennsylvania record by winning 68 games in a row. The winning streak didn’t stop until archrival Overbrook High beat the Speedboys, 6261, on February 21, 1978, at Overbrook High. In defeat, Tillman had finished the game with 24 points and 11 rebounds. At West Philadelphia High, Tillman had played on a great team with Gene Banks, Darryl “City Lights” Warrick, Mike Nichols, Mike Powell, James “Pee Wee” Thomas, Vincent Ross, Timmy Smith, Joe Garrett, Lou Crawley, Gregory McKinney, Randy Barr, Donald Watkins, Ron Williams, Terry Scott and Tyrell Biggs.The Speedboys were loaded with great talent. The Speedboys had won 104 of 106 games over a four-year span. In 1977, the West Philadelphia Speedboys went 30-0 for the season and were named the best high school basketball team in the nation.They were ranked the number one team in the nation after the Speedboys won the national title. Together, they won three City Championships and three Public League

Philadelphia will mandate COVID vaccinations in food establishments By Victor Skinner The Center Square contributor


hiladelphia city officials will require restaurants and entertainment venues that sell food to demand all who enter show proof of COVID-19 vaccination, though there are exemptions for religious or medical reasons. “Starting Monday January 3, Philadelphia establishments that sell food or drink for consumption onsite will require that everyone who enters has completed their COVID vaccinations,” according to the city website. “Completing vaccinations means that they have received two doses of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.” The decree applies to patrons, employees and children over age of five years, three months. Employees and kids will be required to have at least one dose by Jan. 3 and to finish the vaccine series by Feb. 3. The city is phasing in the mandate by allowing negative COVID-19 tests within the past 24 hours until Jan. 17, after which “everyone will need to be fully vaccinated.” The new rules apply to many, but not all, places where groups gather to eat indoors in public, including restaurants, cafes, bars, sports venues, movie theaters, bowling

alleys, convention and catering halls, casinos and food courts. It does not apply to K-12 lunchrooms, early child care facilities, hospitals, soup kitchens, congregate care facilities or residential or health care facilities. It also does not apply to places that typically sell food or drinks for offsite consumption, such as grocery stores, convenience stores or stores in the Philadelphia International Airport. “People with proof of valid religious or medical exemptions and children under five years and three months are exempt from the mandate,” according to the city website. Those with exemptions, however, still would need a negative COVID-19 test within the past 24 hours to enter establishments that seat more than 1,000. City Health Commissioner Dr. Sheryl Bettigole blamed the mandate on rising COVID-19 case rates, a new omicron variant of the coronavirus and the alleged risk of transmission from visiting indoors unmasked when she announced the decision Monday during a virtual news conference. “I don’t want to close our restaurants or the other types of businesses that sell food,” Bettigole said. “I want them to stay open and operate safely. “Since we can’t make people wear masks when they’re eating, we need to increase the vaccina-

tion rate of people in those situations.” “This announcement will help reduce the spread of COVID when people are enjoying the city’s restaurants and other establishments that sell food,” she said. Bettigole encouraged folks to report establishments that do not comply. “If you see an establishment not following the rules, you can call 311 and we’ll send out inspectors to educate them on the new mandate and to enforce, if necessary,” she said. Bettigole pointed to the city’s unvaccinated residents as the reason behind the move, and



she encouraged those who have resisted to reconsider. “As the mayor said earlier, Philadelphia is doing a great job staying masked and getting vaccinated, but with hundreds of thousands

of Philadelphians who are eligible for vaccines but did not get fully vaccinated, we need this additional safety measure to make us safer and avoid some of the worst outcomes we’ve seen in other states,” she said.

“If you haven’t gotten your vaccine yet, there’s still time to get fully vaccinated before this mandate goes into effect, and you can keep going out to eat and to enjoy yourself at covered entertainment venues safely.”

After the first attack he is ordered to kill the local human ambassador, but he refuses to kill the man’s seven-year-old daughter. Then when his Mervon friend Harb finds a way to remove the inhibitions that make he obey orders, He decides to take Hannah across the continent and across the water to the human island. Michael Drakich’s Requiem For A Genocide (ebook ) is a wonderful tale of an impossible quest. Sometimes helped by Mervans and sometimes hindered, he slowly falls apart, determined to use his finals hours to help the girl get to her people, Wonderful.

Charlie N. Holmberg has an odd romance on a world with real gods. Because her fiancé loves another Ceris Wenden volunteers to become a Star Mother (paper from 47North), impregnated by the Sun, her child will replace a dead star in the sky. She expects to die at the birthing and go to the star mother heaven. But she doesn’t, and on returning to the human world, discovers that seven hundred years have passed. She decides to find her decedents who have moved

to another city, and along the way is helped by a godling who has escaped his chains. In the skies above the Sun and Moon are at war, which sometimes can damage human settlements. Very nice tale.

Druadaen was orphaned at 9 and raised in an archive. Working as an outrider in the Concentium of Dunarra, he starts finding that parts of This Broken World (hard from Baen) don’t make sense. Charles E. Gannon has a fun tale of Druadaen’s quests he tales along with a few soldier-of-fortune types including a magician. The Bent come out in hordes from their deep caverns every decade despite lack of enough food. Then there are the giants who are too big to even move, the dragons who fly with relatively small wings, and even a continent that appeared suddenly within the historic record. I really enjoyed this tale of exploration and can’t wait for the sequel that may provide the answers to the questions.

In 1928, a decade after a bunch of European countries invaded The US from Canada over a stolen microbe that allows telepathy, Liam Mulcahey is working for a very rich family as

a mechanic and is close friends with the son. He doesn’t remember being one of the Devil’s Henchmen who used the microbe to work together in their exoskeleton machines. The whole population of the US has been infected with a mild form of the microbe, allowing the creation of illusions. Unfortunately, there are evil plans afoot. A friend, Grace, helps release his memories with a drug added to Absynthe (paper from DAW). Brendan P. Bellecourt tells an exciting tale in which solutions lie under layers of deceit. Very exciting and I hope for more from Mr. Bellecourt.

David Bara tells of Jared Clement, a Robert E . Lee figure whose Rim Worlds rebellion from the 5 Suns system was over food and corruption. The five suns had been settled with generation ships from Earth three centuries before and was now suffering from over population. Nine years later, his former lover and second-in-command, Elara Devore, requests him to command the first faster-than-light ship to Trinity (paper from Baen). is She had risen to Admiral in the 5 Suns fleet and fears economic collapse. Trinity has resources to prevent that. So, with a small crew and the weapons he demanded before accepting the job, he sets out expecting an unhabited solar system with three livable worlds. That would have been boring. There are lots for fun ship to ship action, treachery, and enough unanswered questions to allow a sequel. This fun tale is complete in itself. Recommended. Tom Kratman, Justin Watson and Kacey Ezell

wonder what would have happened if Germans at the end of World War I decided to send a small expedition of rearmed Russian prisoners to rescue the Tsar and his family before they were murdered. The Romanov Rescue (hard from Baen) involves a spare Zeppelin, a bunch of captured arms, and a lot of daring. The tale is well researched and feels as though it might have been real. Genevieve Cogman may have concluded her fun tale of a multiverse ruled on the chaotic end by the Fae and on the Order end by Dragons. Separated from the multiple worlds is the Invisible Library whose agents keep the balance by collecting rare books. Irene Walker, working with her dragon prince lover Kai, and the great detective Vale, she has to face the Library’s greatest foe, her father Alberich, and find out why the ex-librarian turned against it. The reason is The Untold Story (paper from ACE) of the Library’s creation. Worlds are being destroyed and something is taking control of Librarian’s minds. The answer to both problems lies in the very heart of the Library where ancient beings will do anything to stop her. This is the usual fun melodrama that defines the series. Honor Harrington fans will enjoy her brief return in David Weber and Eric Flint’s To End in Fire (hard from Baen) The evil Mesan allience, responsible for genetic slavery, has set up two bolthole planets. Until Honor is called out of retirement to lead a fleet in attack on one of them, numerous zoom meetings on both sides are necessary to set up that final battle. This is a must for fans of the Honorverse. Hank Davis and

Pennsylvania’s proves she’s prepared By Nathaniel Lee Press/Review Correspondent


here’s no fear like the fear of a nuclear catastrophe. We’ve known this fear with the Three-mile Island incident and the nation was determined to prepare against nuclear devastation in the event of another similar incident. To ensure that we are prepared, we are extensively trained and tested twice a year to test our abilities to respond to the unthinkable. The people of Pennsylvania were recently tested and by all appearances, they did well indeed. “It was established after the 3-Mile Island accident in 1979 and the purpose is, number one, to ensure that the citizens living in and around power plants will be protected in the event of a nuclear power accident,” said FEMA’s Thomas Scardino, during a virtual meeting of regulatory agencies and members of the press in November of this year. The scope of the tests designed to assess the preparedness of emergency response and preparedness had a specific scope but covered a wide range of possibilities: “WE only deal with commercial nuclear power reactors. We don’t deal with test reactors or research reactors that are commonly found in some of the universities and military installations,” said Scardino The second objective was “to inform and educate the public about radiological preparedness.” The preparedness exercises are required biannually. “FEMA’s role in those exercises are to evaluate and assess the offsite radiological response plans by state and local governments and to determine if they could be implemented during an emergency. Part of that is the bi-annual exercise requirement.”

FEMA’s Thomas Scardino. Courtesy of Thomas Scardino,

“The jurisdictions assessed by FEMA included the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the risk jurisdictions, they’re defined as counties and municipalities within a ten mile radius of the limerick generator station or what we call ‘the Plume Emergency Planning Zone’.” The jurisdictions in the Plume Emergency Planning Zone were Montgomery County, Bucks County, Chester County, 41 risk municipalities, 11 school districts, and 21 schools. Those outside of the ten mile radius of the nuclear facility, referred to as ‘support jurisdictions’ because their role is to serve as a support for evacuees in emergencies who are coming out of the 10-mile Emergency Planning Zones in what are called “mass care or decontamination centers”. According to the FEMA website, some “ three million people live within 10 miles of an operating nuclear power plant.” In 2019, “there were 58 commercial nuclear power plants in 29 states producing approximately 20 percent of the nation’s power.” The Radiological Emergency Preparedness Program (REP) helps educate residents, provides policies guidance, and evaluate emergency plans. Overall, the REP tests were wide spread. From


the way municipalities and jurisdictions responded to emergencies, to how the public is informed and evacuated, escape routes planned, even a simulation which tested how local authorities would respond if planned escape routes were blocked, were included in the tests for preparedness. Then there were evaluations of how law enforcement, volunteers and leaders responded in various scenarios. Pennsylvania demonstrated that it was prepared in the event of an accident at a nuclear facility, and let’s just hope that we won’t have one.
