 A Passyunk Square resident is directing a rock musical take on a 19th-century murder case.

hroughout her involvement with 11th Hour Theatre Co., a blessing that began in 2006 and intensified five years ago when she became its associate producer, Kate Galvin has taken pride in presenting character-powered musicals that compel audience members to consider the degree to which they can discover their own depth when dealing with dilemmas. The Passyunk Square resident is once again tackling the type of work that she finds incredibly attractive and is experiencing a taste of novelty in directing her first mainstage show for the Whitman-based company with â&#x20AC;&#x153;LIZZIE,â&#x20AC;? a rock musical investigation of the Lizzie Borden murder case. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we look at contemporary society, we easily see there is just such fascination with true crime,â&#x20AC;? Galvin, 36, said not far from Old Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christ Church Neighborhood House, which is staging the play through Jan. 29. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With this, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about something that happened in 1892, and so many people are still obsessed

with it. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty telling.â&#x20AC;? Galvin and a quartet of actresses, including Passyunk Square peer Alex Keiper in the title role and South-ofSouth resident Meredith Beck, are executing a fully realized production of what 11th Hour offered four years ago as a Next Step Concert Series treatment of the trial and acquittal of Borden, a Falls River, Mass. resident whom authorities suspected of using an axe to slay her stepmother and father. The 21st-century take on the incident finds the thespians fronting a band for a performance â&#x20AC;&#x153;filled with rage, sex, betrayal, and bloody murder.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;How could anyone resist that?â&#x20AC;? Galvin said with a laugh of the effort by collaborators Steven Cheslik-Demeyer, Alan Stevens Hewitt, and Tim Maner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really intrigued me is looking at what the work as a whole says about Victorian Era morals, how those estimations of human behavior linger and perhaps hinder us today, and the examination of womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s place in society, meaning how willing we are to be, as we should, open-minded about our biases toward and considerations of women.â&#x20AC;? To assist with their comprehension of the Borden

taleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appeal, the group visited the New England town, including the home where the killings occurred, an experience the director dubbed â&#x20AC;&#x153;beautiful and weird.â&#x20AC;? Uniting research from their November trip with intense appreciation for the stage-based material, they are excitedly analyzing why Lizzie Borden, who â&#x20AC;&#x153;took an axe, gave her mother forty whacksâ&#x20AC;? before delivering 41 to her patriarch, so says a poem, continues to captivate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The gender question stuck in my mind,â&#x20AC;? Galvin said, noting how convicting Borden would have meant the shattering of the all-male juryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estimation of expected female behavior. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The attention this received, such as the Associated Press wire service coverage, and still gets are akin to what we see in the media today where we wonder not only why people resort to violence but also why we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shake the interest in these crimes from our minds.â&#x20AC;? GALVIN HAS THOUGHT of theater as a galvanizer since her childhood days in Jenkintown. Always attentive to the allure of entertaining, she grew up on musicals, community theater productions, plays, and ballets and

To the Editor: While I share Jessica Lynn Argondizzaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concern (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Speaking about freedom of speech,â&#x20AC;? Jan. 5) that freedom of speech be protected for all people, that should include the right to criticize the speech of others. Her example of Drexel Professor George Ciccariello-Maherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reckless and offensive tweet about wishing for â&#x20AC;&#x153;white genocideâ&#x20AC;? is a good example of speech that should be both protected and criticized. Some demanded that Drexel fire him on the spot, but Drexel chose to honor the principle of academic freedom while simultaneously condemning his poor choice of words.

President-Elect Trump also has the right to say whatever he pleases, but, like the professor, is not immune to criticism. If he, for example, calls a group of people â&#x20AC;&#x153;rapistsâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;terroristsâ&#x20AC;? because they are from a particular country, that is xenophobic or racist, and he deserves to be called on it. Yes, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s protect all speech, and that includes the right to respond to offensive speech no matter who says it. Gloria C.

coveted prize. Formed in 1922, the Ferko String Band has the most successful record of a string band at the Mummers Parade, according to its website.

XPPHU\ LV LQ 7KRPDV '¡$PRUH¡V EORRG His father was a Mummer. So were his two brothers. And Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Amore, 28, has been one since he was 11 years old. This year, he brought home a title that shows his dedication to the tradition, and to the Bridesburg-based Joseph A. Ferko String Band: First Prize Captain of the 2017 Mummers Parade String Band Division. Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Amore, a South Philly native and Drexel Hill resident, beat out 15 other captains in the String Band Division for the

ing the Mummers Parade over the years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The theme has a lot of energy, a lot of passion. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really rich culture and heritage, and we really learned a lot about it,â&#x20AC;? Simon said. In November, the band presented its entire performance to the City of Philadelphia to ensure that, according to Simon: â&#x20AC;&#x153;what we were doing, they were okay with.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was accurate and professionally done,â&#x20AC;? Simon said. After their performance at 15th Street and John F. Kennedy Boulevard on New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day, the members of the Ferko String Band made their way back to their clubhouse in Bridesburg as they awaited the judgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scores. Ferkoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance came in fifth out of 16 string bands. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The amount of time and effort that goes into this by individual members, is really nothing short of a full-time job,â&#x20AC;? Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Amore said. Throughout the year, members are required to attend 60 percent of events, as well as practices on Sunday mornings and Tuesday evenings after work hours. And although the members put in enough hours to seem like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working a fulltime job, being a part of the Ferko String Band is a family tradition and a hobby. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a big brotherhood and we all treat each other that way.â&#x20AC;? Simon said. With the parade behind them, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to start planning and practicing for next year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s January 4, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting ready to start all over again for next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance,â&#x20AC;? Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Amore said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right back to work.â&#x20AC;? A>@

THE 100-PLUS MEMBERS of Ferko vote on a captain every year, and at the end of January 2016, they elected Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Amore to lead the club and be what he describes as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;figureheadâ&#x20AC;? of the organization. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be lucky enough to hold on to this role for another year,â&#x20AC;? Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Amore said. Both Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Amore and Simon were two of four people on a committee that planned Ferkoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance on New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day, which paid homage to Native American culture with the theme â&#x20AC;&#x153;We Stand As One.â&#x20AC;? Ferko had not performed a Native American theme since 1971, and, according to Simon, it is generally a widely popular theme for string bands. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was something that we thought should be honored,â&#x20AC;? Simon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With all the stuff happening with Standing Rock, we thought it was a good time to honor the heritage in a way that we felt we could.â&#x20AC;?

However, first prize isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a new achievement for the young captain. Before joining the Ferko String Band four years ago, Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Amore enjoyed a very successful captain stint with the Fralinger String Band, winning the top prize four times in 13 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He has a proven track record, and just a presence about him that the men of the organization can stand behind,â&#x20AC;? John Simon, Ferkoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music director of 13 years, said about Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Amoreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s election to captain after being with the Ferko organization for just a few years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a good guy, very respectful and understands the hobby, Simon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People not just in our organization, but all organizations respect what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done at such a young age. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty impressive.â&#x20AC;?

hroughout her involvement with 11th Hour Theatre Co., a blessing that began in 2006 and intensified five years ago when she became its associate producer, Kate Galvin has taken pride in presenting character-powered musicals that compel audience members to consider the degree to which they can discover their own depth when dealing with dilemmas. The Passyunk Square resident is once again tackling the type of work that she finds incredibly attractive and is experiencing a taste of novelty in directing her first mainstage show for the Whitman-based company with â&#x20AC;&#x153;LIZZIE,â&#x20AC;? a rock musical investigation of the Lizzie Borden murder case. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we look at contemporary society, we easily see there is just such fascination with true crime,â&#x20AC;? Galvin, 36, said not far from Old Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christ Church Neighborhood House, which is staging the play through Jan. 29. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With this, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about something that hap-

pened in 1892, and so many people are still obsessed with it. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty telling.â&#x20AC;? Galvin and a quartet of actresses, including Passyunk Square peer Alex Keiper in the title role and South-ofSouth resident Meredith Beck, are executing a fully realized production of what 11th Hour offered four years ago as a Next Step Concert Series treatment of the trial and acquittal of Borden, a Falls River, Mass. resident whom authorities suspected of using an axe to slay her stepmother and father. The 21st-century take on the incident finds the thespians fronting a band for a performance â&#x20AC;&#x153;filled with rage, sex, betrayal, and bloody murder.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;How could anyone resist that?â&#x20AC;? Galvin said with a laugh of the effort by collaborators Steven Cheslik-Demeyer, Alan Stevens Hewitt, and Tim Maner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really intrigued me is looking at what the work as a whole says about Victorian Era morals, how those estimations of human behavior linger and perhaps hinder us today, and the examination of womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s place in society, meaning how willing we are to be, as we should, open-minded about our biases toward and considerations of women.â&#x20AC;?

To assist with their comprehension of the Borden taleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appeal, the group visited the New England town, including the home where the killings occurred, an experience the director dubbed â&#x20AC;&#x153;beautiful and weird.â&#x20AC;? Uniting research from their November trip with intense appreciation for the stage-based material, they are excitedly analyzing why Lizzie Borden, who â&#x20AC;&#x153;took an axe, gave her mother forty whacksâ&#x20AC;? before delivering 41 to her patriarch, so says a poem, continues to captivate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The gender question stuck in my mind,â&#x20AC;? Galvin said, noting how convicting Borden would have meant the shattering of the all-male juryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estimation of expected female behavior. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The attention this received, such as the Associated Press wire service coverage, and still gets are akin to what we see in the media today where we wonder not only why people resort to violence but also why we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shake the interest in these crimes from our minds.â&#x20AC;? GALVIN HAS THOUGHT of theater as a galvanizer since her continued on next page

childhood days in Jenkintown. Always attentive to the allure of entertaining, she grew up on musicals, community theater productions, plays, and ballets and tested her talent as a performer. New York University helped to heighten her enthusiasm for musical theater, yet, even with the bright lights of Broadway painting a radiant picture of what life could offer, it was not enough to convince the up-and-coming talent to live there for good. Philadelphia is her scene. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the city is a really good fit for me,â&#x20AC;? Galvin said, noting she often feels spoiled in having so many inspirational contemporaries, particularly in South Philly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s less pressure to feel locked in to one pursuit, meaning you are going to find receptivity to your varied skillset if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re willing to see where it can take you. In New York, some people become fixated on being maniacal about stuff, and that can be stifling. Here, one project that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go entirely well is not going to sink your career.â&#x20AC;? She initially grew to love the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s status as a stage-friendly location through an apprenticeship at the Walnut Street Theatre, whom she has gone on to help

more than 70 times through casting endeavors. Her website notes â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the first to admit that I never set out to become a writer,â&#x20AC;? but she indeed added scribe to her list of titles through graduate studies at Goldsmiths, University of London. Her stint across the Atlantic Ocean yielded 2005â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Austentacious,â&#x20AC;? a musical comedy that became a FringeArts hit in Philadelphia the next year. This city came calling again following her studies, and Galvin has enjoyed the aforementioned versatility through directing, casting, coaching and writing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love that Philadelphia can make it possible for someone to say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I do thisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I do thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and really help to make that personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s potential take off,â&#x20AC;? Galvin, whose eye for overseeing a cast earned her a Barrymore Award for Inis Nua Theatre

Co.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Midsummer [a play with songs],â&#x20AC;? said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s refreshing to know so many people who want to think outside of the box and present wonderful work because you just know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a great experience each time.â&#x20AC;? Galvin especially reveres how musicals contribute to that vibe, classifying them as a synthesis of storytelling. Since 11th Hour dedicates itself to producing musicals, she loves that â&#x20AC;&#x153;LIZZIEâ&#x20AC;? is again giving her and the rest of the personnel a high-profile chance to shine. That the material has a very dark identity resonates with the director, who last year trekked to Dallas to oversee â&#x20AC;&#x153;Creep,â&#x20AC;? a Jack the Ripper analysis that she is looking to secure stagings of in London. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m generally a very happy person, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get me wrong,â&#x20AC;? she laughed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those dark elements of life come out somehow,

though, for most people, and my work seems the outlet for me. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;LIZZIEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is a great means to look at what those elements can teach us about ourselves.â&#x20AC;? Galvin hopes to be able to stage the work in Falls River this summer when the community acknowledges the anniversary of the killings. Even if that does not occur, she will nonetheless have a busy year, including a March journey to Maine to helm â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buyer & Cellarâ&#x20AC;? and Aprilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Road Showâ&#x20AC;? Next Step Concert Series for 11th Hour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being busy is good,â&#x20AC;? Galvin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That means there are stories that people care about hearing. I know Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m keen on helping to tell them.â&#x20AC;?

XWULWLRQWUXPSVHYHU\WKLQJ It beats out the overpriced personal trainer, gym membership and fitness machine the turn of a New Year tells insists you must have. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because putting good food in your body jumpstarts your metabolism even if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pick up a single weight. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what those same trainers and gyms wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell you because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s money out of their pocket, but you should be more concerned with yours. Even inexpensive gyms like Planet Fitness preaches a $10 monthly plan, but taking that $10 instead to invest in fresh, organic fruits vegetables and whole grains ultimately pay dividends way more than any treadmill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The gyms are all going to be packed on Jan. 2 and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good and great and all, but year after year, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just not sustainable because you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seeing immediate gains,â&#x20AC;? Kevin Miller, a certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS) who served as the strength coach for the Philadelphiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Major League Soccer franchise for seven seasons, said. Working with both professional athletes to the everyday person, Miller who pens a daily blog, kevinmillertraining.com has seen the effects of putting good food in your body. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you truly want to change your body composition, my advice to people is to set realistic goals and make sure your diet comes first,â&#x20AC;? he said. Basically, if you have the money for a monthly gym membership, which according to popular website Statistic Brain, which estimates $67 monthly for the average Philadelphian, you have money to kickstart healthy eating habits. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re used to ready made meals or your favorite takeout, but the joy that comes from preparing your own meals outweighs the temporary dopamine fix from being a hamster on a treadmill.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;People always say that time is an issue as to the reason that they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eat well,â&#x20AC;? Miller said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But there are meals you can make that you could be eating way before the pizza delivery guy shows up. There has never been a time in the health and fitness industry where more money has been spent on health and exercise equipment but at the same time people are also getting sicker. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t putting the right nutrition in their body to best their best self.â&#x20AC;? Some easy steps Miller suggests to kickstart getting on a strong realistic path? 5SbO`SQW^SP]]YO\R[O^]cb [SOZag]c¸R`SOZZgZWYSb]b`gO\R ^c`QVOaS T`SaV W\U`SRWS\ba b] [OYSbVS[ â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are plenty of great diets out there with really good recipe books,â&#x20AC;? says Miller.

Miller said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the same time you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to always link up with that friend whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s okay with going out for dinners all the time either.

Miller said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You see a lot of people with the right intentions but they just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a roadmap to really ensure long terms gains,â&#x20AC;? Miller said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sitting down and being honest with yourself in terms of time, commitment and how much you can afford all plays into how youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll feel down the line. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to hold yourself accountable first and in my opinion making the right choices with food is a much better, more gratifying way to go.â&#x20AC;? A>@ Comment features.

Effective, Opioid-Free Pain Management Options (Family Features) New research is giving pain sufferers a dose of good news. With concerns mounting about the prevalence of opioid use and abuse in the U.S., a new study validates the effectiveness of acupuncture and other non-drug health therapies for pain. The National Institute of Healthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health compiled evidence on how complementary health therapies â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including acupuncture, yoga, tai chi, massage therapy and relaxation techniques â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are effective in treating chronic pain.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;As addictions to, and deaths from prescription opioids such as oxycodone, hydrocodone and methadone continue to rise, raising awareness on complementary and alternative pain therapies like acupuncture is more important than ever,â&#x20AC;? said Kory Ward-Cook, Ph.D., Chief Executive OfďŹ cer of the National CertiďŹ cation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). â&#x20AC;&#x153;The research from National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health brings greater attention to the use of acupuncture to treat and relieve chronic pain.â&#x20AC;?

The study showed that acupuncture in combination with yoga is the most effective therapy for back pain and acupuncture with tai chi is the most effective treatment for osteoarthritis pain in the knee.

Experts in the ďŹ eld are pointing to the study, which was published in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mayo Clinic Proceedingsâ&#x20AC;? journal, as a pivotal opportunity in shifting how patients explore treatment for their pain management. The ďŹ ndings support the beneďŹ ts of non-drug approaches to help those with chronic pain more safely manage their conditions without the harmful side effects of opioids. The study explored seven widely-used non-drug treatments: Acupuncture: Using practices derived from traditional Chinese medicine, practitioners stimulate speciďŹ c points on the body, most often by inserting thin needles through the skin. Nationally Board-CertiďŹ ed practitioners, whose credentials can be veriďŹ ed through the NCCAOM, are afďŹ rmed to have the education and training necessary to competently deliver acupuncture therapy. To learn more or ďŹ nd a NCCAOM board-certiďŹ ed practitioner in your area, visit nccaom.org. Spinal manipulation or osteopathic manipulation: This approach involves applying controlled force from hands or a device to move a joint past its

Massage therapy: Using hands (or sometimes forearms or elbows), therapists manipulate muscles and soft tissue to relieve tension and pain. Tai chi: These mind and body practices involve a series of postures and movements integrated with mental focus, breathing and relaxation techniques. Yoga: A generally low-impact approach to physical well-being, yoga spans physical postures, breathing exercises and meditation. Practicing certain sets of yoga poses may help reduce pain. Relaxation techniques: There are several types of relaxation techniques, including meditation, that strive to bring the body to its natural state with slower breathing, lower blood pressure and a feeling of increased wellbeing. Natural product supplements: Certain dietary supplements such as chondroitin, glucosamine, methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), S-adenosyl-L-methionine (SAMe) and omega-3 fatty acids are commonly used to help treat inďŹ&#x201A;ammation often associated with pain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Opioids are dangerous, highly addictive and do not treat chronic pain â&#x20AC;&#x201C; only mask it,â&#x20AC;? said Bill Reddy, Director of the Integrative Health Policy Consortium and a NCCAOM-certiďŹ ed and licensed acupuncturist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To solve the opioid epidemic, we must apply the most powerful, innovative approaches to address the root cause of pain within the human body.â&#x20AC;?

sumption through higher prices. According to the Association of American Physicians, annual healthcare expenditures for excessive alcohol consumption are $22.5 billion a year. But guess what: Obesity, some of it brought on by Big Gulps, costs more than 10 times that muchâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;more than $315 billion a year in health care expenses, according to a study at Cornell University. Whether these taxes have any impact on consumption is questionable. The evidence shows it was the enactment of tougher drunk driving laws, not higher prices, that drove down alcohol intake. As for soda, I suspect sugar addicts wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give up their daily fix as long as they can easily stock up on the other side of City Avenue. But letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not get bogged down with a debate over social engineering through the tax code, because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the primary benefit cited by proponents of these taxes. Both were enacted ostensibly to fund childhood education. Which is damn worthwhile. But education benefits everyone, and its cost shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be borne inordinately by those who happen to enjoy soda or beer. If the schools or pre-K programs need more money, the city (and the state) ought to be funding them more fairly through wage or real estate taxes. Unfortunately, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a non-starter in a city trying to attract new residents and businesses. So, hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another way to look at it: That $182.50 a year you pay in Philadelphia drink taxes is a drop in the bucket in a city that spends $2.8 billion for its public schools. Consider it your civic duty. If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a make-or-break number for you, cut out just one drink a week - that will more than pay for the cost of these annoying taxes. As for you soda drinkers, well, take it from this beer drinker: Suck it up. SPR

Mi Lah Tapas & Dim Sumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dan Dan Noodles

ason Lay came to the United States from Cambodia as a 21-year-old eager to learn, with his curiosity culminating in the earning of marketing and management degrees. But it seems working as a bridge and highway inspector for an engineering company was not exactly what he envisioned for his career. While solidifying safety helped to pay his bills, Lay yearned for something more rewarding and has found that through the culinary world, including time at Mi Lah Tapas & Dim Sum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had been asking myself â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What am I doing?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the answers,â&#x20AC;? he said from his month-old Queen Village space. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d grown tired of not really benefiting people, so I used that frustration to try this means to make a difference.â&#x20AC;? Lay, in his mid-20s at the time, had his epiphany through a trip to Taiwan, with exposure to the International Nature Loving Association being the impetus for change. The initial Mi Lah restaurant ended up in Center City, with subsequent relocation to Ambler, and Lay, 33, is loving the opportunity to helm the second spot not far from his residence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re building our clientele steadily,â&#x20AC;? the South Philly resident said of the 40-seat haunt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Uniting tapas and dim sum offerings is pretty rare, so while customers might have had initial doubts, we enjoy having removed them and concentrating on making our guestsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sense of satisfaction high.â&#x20AC;? Mi Lah works to honor its ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creed by being 100 percent vegan. It also has won over locals and visitors through commendations from neighboring businesses, with Lay gladly returning the favor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every little bit helps to improve the community vibe,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to have the support.â&#x20AC;? Of Cambodian and Chinese lineage, he paid homage to the latter by sharing Mi

Lahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recipe for Dan Dan Noodles, a staple of the cuisine in Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sichuan province. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very enjoyable item, a popular one, too,â&#x20AC;? Lay said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being so new, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re happy with our progress, and the dan dan noodles deserve some of the credit.â&#x20AC;?

DIRECTIONS: Combine the sauce ingredients in a pot, and slowly cook them until they are boiled and smooth. Spread noodles out, and place them in a pot of boiling water for about three to four minutes. Transfer them into iced water mixed with 2 tablespoons of cooking oil for about a minute, and drain out the water. To serve, place the noodles in another pot of boiling water, and allow to boil for about 30 seconds. Remove the noodles, and mix them with the sauce. Consider following Mi Lahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preparation by topping with steamed baby bok choy, cucumber and ground seitan. A>@

ow soda slurpers know how the rest of us feel. And by the rest of us, I mean beer drinkersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;adults who enjoy grownup beverages. Beverages, by the way, that are taxed way more than the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newly imposed penny-and-a-half surcharge that Mountain Dew addicts are griping about. A quick primer: If you drink one 16-ounce Coca-Colaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or Gatorade, Monster, Starbucks Double Shot or... the list of sweetened crap is endlessâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; per day, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll cost you an additional $87.60 a year under Philadelphiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new beverage tax. By comparison, if you drink one 16-ounce glass Coors Light (or something better) per day, it costs you an additional $182.50 under Philadelphiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s liquor taxâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a tax beer drinkers have been paying for more than 20 years. And that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t include federal and state excise taxes, or the additional price that retailers charge to recoup the cost of their liquor licenses. The Beer Institute, which lobbies lawmakers on behalf of breweries, claims about 40 percent of the cost of beer is taxes. So, why do we pay so much for a cold one? Because, as much as you may venerate the glory of malt and hops, alcohol consumption is a vice. And in America, we tax the hell out of vices. So-called sin taxes are levied on goods that can cause harm, to repay their social damage and to tamp down their con-

The Neumann-Goretti boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; basketball team, led by two superstars and a strong supporting cast, is keeping things status quo in its latest championship chase. N0g8]aS^V;gS`a R e v i e w S ta f f W r i t e r

dmirers and adversaries have long admired the boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; basketball team at Ss. Neumann-Goretti High School for its tenacity, passion, and will. Thanks to the presence of seniors Quade Green and Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree, headed for the University of Kentucky and Villanova University, respectively, in the fall, backers have immense cause to count on this being an unforgettable year, and opponents have added incentive to try to register an upset special. In his 19th season helming the Saints, though, Carl Arrigale sees and hears only the committed bodies and tireless voices of his players when pondering what the winter might yield. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For us, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty clear distinction between the outside world and our circle,â&#x20AC;? the coach said of how he and the East Passyunk Crossing-based ballers approach their tasks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No matter who is on our roster, the goals donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still eager to win every championship possible, and that belief comes from within and has to be there every game for us to have a chance.â&#x20AC;? The Marconi resident has guided incredibly talented teams in his nearly two decades on the bench, with 10 Catholic League crowns and six state championships as standout evidence of his ability to mold cohesive units. College commitments have also offered evidence of how well his adolescents have accepted the team philosophy, so with Green and Cosby-Roundtree having committed to schools who this week hold the sixth and third spots, respectively, in the Associated Press Top 25 and the USA Today Coaches Poll, he knows foes will look to begrime the Saints and hopes that after some early season setbacks, his squad will squash opposing quintets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There have been signs that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coming together,â&#x20AC;? Arrigale said, with Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home 94-39 blowout of Cardinal Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Hara as surefire support. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this time of year when we really look to turn it on and make

our way through the Catholic League with confidence.â&#x20AC;? The triumph over their overmatched foes saw the Saints raise their record against Catholic League clubs to 3-0 ahead of last nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mouthwatering contest against Roman Catholic at Holy Family University. On Monday, Green paced the local bunch with 24 points, with juniors Noah Warren (16) and Dhymir Montague (10) and sophomore Christian Ings (10), showing that Arrigale is not putting a two-trick pony on the court. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those guys are obviously going to get their due,â&#x20AC;? he said of Green and CosbyRoundtree, who at an earlier point in the season could say their postsecondary education destinations held the top two rankings in the land. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, we strive for balance because you need depth to win. Thankfully, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always had it for the most part, so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what pushes us and helps us to wear out other teams.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody buys in no matter the circumstances,â&#x20AC;? Green said earlier this season after committing to Kentucky, where he will join an absolutely loaded freshman class for coach John Calipari. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what it means to represent the Neumann-Goretti Saints. You have to want the pressure, and then you have to show that you can handle it. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we do consistently, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we have been successful.â&#x20AC;? THE POINT GUARD has faced his share of adversity since his early December profile, as back and ankle injuries cost him time, starting with the Saintsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; trip to Fort Myers, Fla., for the City of Palms Classic. While it is debatable, especially given Arrigaleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thoughts on depth, whether the team needs for him to be dominant each game, like when he deposited 37 points in Dec. 14â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 87-73 victory over Imhotep Charter, it will need for him to be on every defenderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind and on each opposing coachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nerves.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the time, when fully prepared, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come out on top,â&#x20AC;? Arrigale said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not always going to happen, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve put ourselves in enough good positions that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been able to have far more positive reflections than negative ones.â&#x20AC;? With Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impressive win, which raised their overall record to 6-5, the team will look to trend upward. The five setbacks, including Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 82-56 loss to Wheeler in the Cancer Research Classic, have come in national events, with Arrigale noting â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life in the big city.â&#x20AC;? His troops will round out their non-league slate Sunday through a trip to another renowned showcase, the Spalding Hoophall Classic in Springfield, Mass., and then will face nothing but Catholic League competition the rest of the regular season, with five home games left. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been through all of this too many times to expect anything but the best from ourselves,â&#x20AC;? Arrigale said, noting particular praise for Cosby-Roundtree, whom he expects to be pivotal as the playoff push unfolds this month and who will soon become the 19th player in program history, including the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s days as Southeast Catholic, Bishop Neumann, and St. John Neumann, to hit 1,000 career points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great time of year to figure out who you are, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ready for that.â&#x20AC;? Once that identity becomes enviably cohesive, look for the Saints to advance to the Catholic League title game at The Palestra. If they indeed cement a late February date at the famed University of Pennsylvania venue, one would hope they would face Roman, who downed them for the 2015 and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;16 titles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care which teams we face along the way,â&#x20AC;? Green said, hoping they can likewise shake off the city title setback to DelVal and emerge again as the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association state conquerors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know they want to knock us down. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be ready for anyone.â&#x20AC;? A>@ Contact Staff Writer Joseph Myers at jmyers@ southphillyreview.com. Comment at southphillyreview.com/sports/features.
