ith Christmas, Jan. 6’s celebration of the Epiphany and Sunday’s observance of the Baptism of the Lord, early winter gives one plenty of reminders of Jesus Christ. New Year’s Day doubles as the Solemnity of Mary, a holy day honoring his blessed mother.

To the Editor: After the South Philadelphia High School incident in which Asian students were attacked and bullied, I’ve always felt that racial discrimination is still an ongoing problem in today’s society. When I look at and hear about the victims of this tragedy banding together with fellow Asian Americans, community organizers and government officials in the city to help resolve the issue, I feel inspired. Their commitment and persistence in dealing with the School District of Philadelphia has made history. With their success in uniting Asian Americans under one voice, I was motivated to start an organization here at my school, where Asians are the smallest minority. I’m currently attending the Girard Academic Music Program. As a senior, my classmates and I were given the opportunity to create a change in our community through a youth services project that was assigned. My group decided to form our school’s first Asian-American organization. We named it, Advancing Asian Americans. Our organization was created for the purpose of developing our own cultural identity in school and the community. We want to raise awareness and interest of the Asian culture, unite against oppression and promote community service. Through our efforts, we hope to increase personal acknowledgement of one’s own cultural background, whether or not they are Asian. We hope to gain support and recognition for us to become successful. Through raising awareness about our group, we aim to motivate students from other schools to take action and form their own individual culturebased organizations.
name of economic emergencies — and has continued to spend taxpayer dollars for TARP I; TARP II; pork spending; bailouts of mega corporations in the worlds of insurance, finance and the auto industry; the stimulus and omnibus bills; and the costly governmentcontrolled and mandated health care bill commonly referred to as ObamaCare.These fiscal policies carry an unsustainable financial burden to the taxpayer — you — and future generations. What is the result? A federal deficit of more than $9 trillion as reported by the Congressional Budget Office Looking over the past 23 months, the growth of the grassroots American movement known as Tea Party Patriots with 3,000-plus affiliate groups and its 15 million Tea Party movement supporters as of January have impacted, stemmed and/or stopped policies that are not in the best interest of Americans on a whole and taxpayers, specifically. We, the Philadelphia Tea Party Patriots and its 10 local coordinator groups, are active affiliates of Tea Party Patriots. Philadelphia Tea Party Patriots can look back to our contributions and our successes, yes. However, the grassroots American movement must be vigilant and continue with the consistent efforts of a concerned citizenry who, in exercising its civic responsibility, continue to make a positive impact on the public servants and their decisions when engaging in the conduct of the peoples’ business. Can we, as Americans, concerned citizens and residents of the city of Philadelphia, engage in civic activities for the betterment of all? Think about it, become informed and get involved. Our next meeting will be held 7 p.m. Jan. 25 at St. Maron’s Church, 10th and Ellsworth streets.

Fiery thoughts To the Editor: As we enter a new year, we would think we have real intelligence used on our behalf by our leadership. Instead, we get a less effective and unwarranted use of useless brain cells called leadership. We pay taxes to ensure ourselves we don’t have to make sacrifices in the form of bodily harm or death, yet we face such deeds everyday which are triggered by a mayor who uses
the dollar bill as a symbol of unconscious behavior. We now have to hold our breath, hope and pray that during a snowstorm, a fire does not take place in our home, our neighbors’ or our loved ones’ homes with the mayor’s brown outs continuing (“Another near miss,” Jan. 6). The next snowstorm that takes place, we may be on our own. So use extra caution with babies and young children in the house. As we all know, anyone with just a grain of common sense, snow is a danger by itself. It can kill anyone at any time. Snow by itself creates a barrier in time to react and respond. It could be a 30-minute response time for a firehouse farther away. God help us if we need them in our neighborhood at the same time as they are responding to a fire farther away. The mayor stated the City’s budget is stabilized, but what is the risk? Our lives, our homes? No matter what kind of financial burden the city may be in at the time, common sense must be used at all times, but it’s not. There’s no common sense to be found in City Hall, only dead brain cells. The mayor is using the fire department as a financial pawn just to show the people that he is the boss and will operate this city at our expense which could be with our lives, our children’s lives or all those who we hold close to us. All we can say to the mayor is you and you alone will be held responsible for any — that takes place. Because of your unatural use of leadership being used to close our firehouses. You are ignoring the will of the people. We won’t forget it. Patrick Dio Sr. South Philadelphia Comment on these letters or topics at www.southphillyreview.com/opinion/letters.

Swinginâ€™ times at Ballyâ€™s ACâ€™s future
ere we are two weeks into the new year, and there still are a lot of questions to be answered about AC. But will any of them be answered at some point this year? Here are some of the bigger ones that come to mind: 1) Will the Revel get the remaining financing it needs to complete its mega resort on the Uptown section of the Boardwalk? 2) When will the Hilton learn its fate? Will it remain open or be sold? 3) Will Trump Entertainment finally find a buyer for the aging Trump Marina that continues to look out of place sitting next to Harrahâ€™s and Borgata? 4) Will the plans be finalized to build a Hard Rock Resort on the Downbeach side of town? 5) Is an expansion in Trump Plazaâ€™s future? ...

Review Managing Editor
takeout deliveryman successfully delivered an order to an East Passyunk dwelling, but was robbed in the few steps he took from the doorstep to his vehicle. On the 1900 block of South Ninth Street at 11:19 p.m. Monday, an unknown man approached him as he returned to his automobile in front of the residence and said, “you and the people you just delivered to got beef with my boy,” Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The employee from Southside Pizza, 740 Mifflin St., did not know what he was referring to and tried to get in his car, but the man pulled a black .38 revolver from his jacket pocket, pointed it at his chest and said, “I want all your money,” Tolliver said. The man handed him the $46 he received from the delivery. The offender pushed the victim’s face down against his car, pointed the gun at his back and said, “I know you got some more money.” After insisting he did not have anything else, the offender searched his pockets and car for any cash. He came up empty-handed, and told the employee, “I was about to bust a cap in your ass. I ought to kill you” and walked away. The suspect was described as black with a dark complexion, age 20 to 24, 6 foot to 6-foot-2, 220 to 240 pounds, clean-shaven, having a deep voice and was wearing a black leather jacket, gray hoody, black sweatpants with a white strip on the side and black sneakers. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013.
Mugged of store proﬁts A Point Breeze dollar store employee was robbed at gunpoint on his way to make a bank deposit for the store Monday. The 53-year-old man headed to the bank from Family Dollar, 1325 Point Breeze Ave., when two men pushed him to the 2100 block of Earp Street and demanded his belongings, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. One of the men, who claimed
to have a gun, said, “don’t look at me,” as he rummaged through the employee’s pockets. The man was unharmed, however, six bags containing $5,031 plus the man’s wallet that contained $220 and his keys were stolen. The suspects, who were described as black — one with a light complexion, one with a dark complexion, age mid- to late20s, 5-foot-11 with a medium build and wearing blue jeans, fled in an unknown direction. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013.
Wounded ankle A teen was struck by gunfire as he was walking through West Passyunk Saturday night. Two men fired several shots at a 15-yearold as he walked northbound on the 2300 block of South 22nd Street, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. After a bullet struck his left ankle, he ran to a family member’s home and someone transported him to Methodist Hospital. Police responding to 22nd and Wolf streets for a reported shooting discovered cartridge casings on the street and a parked automobile damaged by gunfire, Tolliver said. The suspects were described as black, thin and wearing a dark-colored hoody and dark blue jeans. One was 6-foot-2 with a dark complexion while the other was 6 foot with a light complexion. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013.

th District Police Officer Michael Collins attributes adrenaline to his climbing on a roof to save a mother and child as well as entering a burning building in an attempt to save two other children in November. Collins along with 21 other 17th District officers were recognized for their outstanding work as Officers of the Month in a given month throughout 2010 Tuesday morning at a blue ribbon ceremony at JNA Caterers, 1212 S. Broad St. “I wasn’t going to let them die,” Collins, a three-year district cop said of his motivation to enter the home. 17th District Police Capt.

He thought they may be fighting, so he parked on a small side street and soon realized there was a fire on the 1500 block of South Corlies Street. “I walked down the street and saw smoke,” the resident of Second and Jackson streets said. “A couple neighbors threw up a ladder for me.” Collins, a member of the Satin Slipper Fancy Brigade, 1444 S. Second St., climbed up to the rear kitchen roof where a 30-year-old and her 4-year-old daughter were stranded as the home behind them was engulfed in flames. He carried the girl safely to the ground. The woman’s 8-month-old son was lowered to neighbors prior to Collins’ arrival. He returned to the roof to rescue the mother and she told him two of her sons were still inside, so Collins entered the home prior to the fire department’s arrival. “I couldn’t breathe or see,” he said. The lack of oxygen forced Collins to exit the home and help the mother down from the roof. The 2-year-old boy was pronounced dead at the scene due to smoke and soot inhalation and carbon monoxide poisoning while the 3-year-old was transported to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia for second and the third-degree burns and suffering from smoke inhalation. At the ceremony, one to three officers were recognized by 17th District Capt. Anthony Washington who read a proclamation of the officers’ good deeds. “Most of us do what we do for personal satisfaction and improving the life of the citizens,” he said refering to an officer’s motivation. An officer of the month’s accomplishments ranged from having multiple arrests to a narcotic bust to arresting a man later charged for attempted murder.

Extending a healthy vein Two Grays Ferry native siblings have reached triple digits in pints of blood donated to the American Red Cross.
Wanenchak we could not even come close to meeting the daily demand in our area.” But to Eugene Wanenchak, it’s a simple task. “It was an easy thing to do and a way of giving back,” he said. “It doesn’t cost anything for you to do it, just your time. You just roll up your sleeve. Plus you get free pretzels and water ice.” SPR
ne does not have to be a doctor, EMT or firefighter to help save a life, but can do so by simply donating blood. Brothers Eugene and John Wanenchak have both individually donated more than 100 pints of blood to the American Red Cross over the course of their lifetimes. Originally from 28th Street and Snyder Avenue, the siblings have been giving blood since they started working for the Sunoco Refinery, 3144 W. Passyunk Ave., more than 40 years ago. Eugene Wanenchak launched his career at the refinery as a clerk in the payroll department before joining the maintenance department as a machinist. He soon began giving back at his employer’s quarterly blood drive that typically collects about 100 pints during each two-day drive. “The first time I gave blood was because I was embarrassed into it by my peers,” Eugene Wanenchak, who now resides in East Earl — 60 miles from the refinery, said. “After I saw it was no big deal, I just kept giving after all of these years. I gave blood every time the Red Cross came round.” At the refinery Dec. 7, Mike Bukowski, the Philadelphia refinery’s Eugeneral manager, thanked Eugene Wanenchak for his loyalty and commitment to the blood drives by presenting him with a rosewood plaque while Sunoco Blood Chairman John Farrington honored him with a proclamation from the American Red Cross for his significant achievement of donating 102 pints of blood. “I didn’t expect to receive a plaque and thought it was really nice for the refinery to go the extra distance of contacting me and the Red Cross. It was a nice little surprise,” he said. NEARLY FIVE MILLION people a year receive life-saving blood transfusions in the United States. During a transfusion, a patient receives either whole blood or parts of it such as the red blood cells, platelets or plasma. Those who have never before donated have nothing to worry about, Farrington said. “My advice for first time donors is that the anticipation is much worse than the actual event,” he said. “Giving blood is a short, virtually painless procedure that

A blood transfusion is needed in the United States about every two seconds to help people survive car accidents, surgeries, disease, premature births and other medical traumas, according to the Red Cross. “The Red Cross estimates that each pint of blood directly affects at least three patients,” Farrington said. The Wanenchek brothers have saved numerous lives through their donations of blood to the American Red Cross. Their individual contributions have touched at least 300 people each. John Wanenchak, who is now retired, worked in the refinery’s operations department and donated more than 100 pints of blood to the American Red Cross as well. John Wanenchak never received a plaque or proclamation giving Eugene Wanenchak bragging rights in the family. In Farrington’s more than 25 years as blood chairman, only six employees have
reached the milestone with the highest donation level reaching 108 pints, Farrington said. He has known both of the Wanenchak brothers for more than four decades and thinks they donated blood out of a deep sense of compassion and commitment. “I can remember many times when John [Wanenchak], who was a shift worker, would hang around on his own time and wait for the blood drive to open to give blood,” he said. “There were also times when these brothers would come to work on their days off in order to honor their commitment. They are both, in my opinion, two of the finest men I have ever dealt with.” Their contributions have made them local heroes and great examples of ordinary people doing extraordinary things by simply taking the time to donate. “Do you know someone suffering from cancer? Do you know someone who has been in an accident or the victim of a crime? Do you have a friend or relative awaiting surgery? These are just a few of the incidences which occur daily which require whole blood,” Farrington said, “Without faithful donors such as John and Eugene

MATH MATTERS continued from page 1 adelphia’s Office of Catholic Education. Part of a two-year pilot, the curriculum, dubbed “Math Matters,” aims to have participants finish with at least a fraction of ninth-grade algebra. The highest scorers on an online test can present credentials to high schools to bypass the often-dreaded freshman year subject. As the St. Richard’s fifth graders entered the room, Hewitt put in video and voice calls to the Northeast’s Our Lady of Ransom, North Philadelphia’s St. Helena and Northern Liberties’ St. Peter the Apostle. Once connected, he stood by a white board, and his image appeared on the teleconferencing screen’s bottomright quadrant. “Hello, everyone. I want to let you know that Lauren is OK. She got out of the hospital last night at 10,” he jokingly said in referring to Lauren Angelina, of the 3100 block of Smedley Street, whose difficulties with the previous day’s lessons had caused her to come down with “the decimal disease.” The 16 other fifth graders joined Hewitt’s bunch in tending to a maintenance assignment involving five word problems
before beginning to subtract mixed decimals. Meeting technologically with one another each school day for 55 minutes, the learners seemed enraptured by each problem. With mathematics books before them, they took turns answering inquiries and showed unabashed joy in perfecting borrowing. “Remember to check your work,” Hewitt said to his charges, who seemed ready to tackle a test they took yesterday, putting up four or five fingers when he asked them to rate their confidence, with five being the most confident. “My timetables have improved most,” Angelina said, noting that multiplication is her strong suit. As for the rest of the year, she is looking forward to her spring final and having an introduction to sixth-grade mathematics by May. Her eagerness made Hewitt proud. Principal for more than eight years at Northeast’s Resurrection of Our Lord School, Hewitt came closer to home in 2006. In September ’09, he instituted an accelerated mathematics curriculum for fifth graders at St. Richard. In doing so, he made the school one of 13 to provide honors math for eligible students, those learners whose final exam, yearly grade and scores on the TerraNova series of stan-

HEWITT’S ORIGINAL BATCH of learners followed the current fifth graders and saw the principal connect with 14 new students. The Proficiency and Access to Computer Technology program, a grant division of the 56-year-old Connelly Foundation, has made their unorthodox interactions possible. St. Richard has received frequent aid, including recent acquisitions of laptops and ceiling-mounted projectors, through the program, which began in 1996 and whose parent organization funded each of the four schools’ $20,000 installation costs. With a dry-erase marker in hand, Hewitt worked on temperature conversions with the pending adolescents, using an estimation formula to address the Celsius and Fahrenheit scales. The St. Richard smattering looked back at its colleagues only a couple times, hinting at having grown accustomed to the daily visitors. “With the sixth graders, I had been worried they might find the technology

distracting because it would represent a change from last year when it was just us,” Hewitt said. “The fascination dwindled after the first month. The other schools’ students are highly enthusiastic, too. I feel as if they are with me.” The St. Richard children do not interact much with their guests, but they have the same assignments and expectations. The sixth graders joined the fifth grade students in testing yesterday, and the former also turned in a graphing project. “Testing is traditional,” Hewitt said, adding that technology helps him to send materials and couriers assist in their retrieval. The Connelly Foundation, whose website notes that learning has become the cornerstone of its mission, chose the quartet of schools, giving the initiative geographic diversity. Stimulus money and other government assistance allowed the Office of Catholic Education to partner with the Connelly Foundation to award 54 grants last year, with more than 50 percent going to Philadelphia’s parochial schools. As the lone South Philadelphia component of the Math Matters pilot, St. Richard enlists Hewitt to provide extra motivation

dardized tests proved they could handle increased workloads. “We go at a workable pace,” Hewitt said. “Sometimes I will need to reiterate certain elements, but the kids are great. They enjoy staying challenged.”

continued from page 1 1731 S. 11th St., desires to make each day a token of the Virgin’s importance. Beiterschmitt, a painter and sculptor who serves as president of The American Academy of the Sacred Arts, 1629 Porter St., believes Mary wants an increased presence in Philadelphia. Her conviction derives from Mary’s luminous appearance as the iconic Our Lady of Guadalupe over an ordinary mosaic in Emmitsburg, Md. The casual click has left Beiterschmitt seeking to duplicate the image and construct a shrine using a blank exterior wall belonging to Carto Funeral Home Inc., 2212-14 S. Broad St. “I joined a prayer group meeting with colleagues from Mount Carmel,” Beiterschmitt said in reference to her Aug. 3, ’08 gathering with Northumberland County friends. Following the reciting of the Third Glorious Mystery, The Descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, Gianna Sullivan, a notable doctor of pharmacy who claims to receive an apparition of Mary almost every day, made Beiterschmitt aware of “the presence of something greater” for nearly five minutes. Her group ventured to Emmitsburg’s National Shrine Grotto of Our Lady of Lordes, where, using a disposable camera, she captured numerous images. “I took a shot of a mosaic that featured Our Lady of Guadalupe,” Beiterschmitt said of the most prized image from the unplanned stop. Developing the film served as the genesis for her now-10-month-old mission to laud Our Lady of Guadalupe, whom Pope John Paul II named Patroness of the Americas Jan. 22, 1999. Consulting two professional photographers, Beiterschmitt learned the image appeared in the negatives, ruling out any trickery. Versed in signs and symbols, she knew she must bring the image of the pregnant mother of God to foster peace in American democracy’s birthplace, although she possessed a tiny sense of fear about proceeding. “I didn’t act right away,” Beiterschmitt said. By March 25’s Feast of the Annunciation, however, the divine pressed her for action. Perhaps fittingly, her decision to proceed came May 23, Pentecost Sunday. “That day, I felt a real urgency, as if the blessed mother were saying, ‘What are you doing waiting?’ I had a feeling of reproach,” Beiterschmitt said. A trip to City Hall brought favorable responses from the offices she visited. She learned she needed to secure a wall and acquire necessary funds. “I wondered what my site would be. I

She sees it as a sign that she is to be an advocate for Our Lady of Guadalupe, one of the numerous titles for the Blessed Mother. found a wall but was unaware of the ownership,” Beiterschmitt said of the fortuitous find while walking to her bank. Nunzio Carto, Jr. turned out to be the wall’s owner. A parishioner at St. Monica, 17th and Ritner streets, where Beiterschmitt has spent a good chunk of her 50 years as a religious, he offered the space for the dual project, which could occupy 20 feet. “It will be a great addition to the block,” Carto, who will supply the lighting once Beiterschmitt has consulted an electrician, said. “I want it nice and bright to preserve the dignity of the street.” THE VIRGIN MARY appeared to Juan Diego, an indigenous Mexican, Dec. 9, 1531 on the Hill of Tepeyac near Mexico City, according to Catholic Online, a comprehensive website on Catholicism. An area damaged by hostilities between Spaniards and Aztecs, Mexico seemed the perfect spot for her message of peace to reach. Juan Diego learned of Mary’s request for the erection of a church on the barren hill. Three more apparitions occurred over the next three days, with the final one providing the proof — a sign that Mary had instructed Juan Diego — that Bishop Zumarraga required to proceed. The mother of the executor of miracles made roses appear on the hill. Juan Diego stuffed them into his cloak, which, upon his opening it before Zumarraga, had Mary’s image in its lining. The bedazzled bishop had the first sanctuary erected two years later.
Housed at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, one of the world’s most visited Catholic pilgrimage destinations, the cloak remains intact and features the solemn Virgin with hands folded, head bowed and feet atop a crested moon, suppressing the stone serpent the Aztecs deemed a god. Beiterschmitt feels a kinship with Juan Diego, someone who would not have attracted much attention and who simply followed God’s call for action. “I am fascinated with the apparitions to Juan Diego,” Beiterschmitt, who counts Our Lady of Guadalupe among her devotions, said. “He had a direct call from God. I have had that, too. “The image Our Lady left is brilliant. As an artist, I recognize that.” Beiterschmitt founded her academy in 1993, nine years after becoming the first nun to complete studies at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. The Second Vatican Council in ’63 issued the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, urging the founding of schools or academies of art around the world. Beiterschmitt advises artists and secures commissions for them. Paintings and sculptures reside in her academy, and her work appears in the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. “It’s our task to follow through using the skills God has provided,” she said. She is consulting architects, designers and engineers to honor Our Lady of Guadalupe.
S ta f f P h o t o b y G r e g B e z a n i s
Beiterschmitt, who credits her order for helping her to maximize her artistic vocation, envisions a two-level homage to Mary, with a bronze image occupying the second level of the northward-facing wall and a plaque with donor’s names on the first level. Carto also suggested making the area a shrine. “Bronze is a permanent material, so this seems the appropriate medium,” Beiterschmitt said, adding that secure casing would prevent defilement of the image’s “healing quality.” A shallow niche would contain the image, and Carto’s lights would mimic the luminous site Zumarraga witnessed about 500 years ago. “I want the project to have a ripple effect,” Beiterschmitt said of wishing for the presence of art to be more than just a local thing. She has learned the project could cost $150,000, so it will require contributions. With a complicated economy, she has no timetable for the erection but knows that Mary’s wish will be done. “The bronze image of the mother of God will bring comfort and relief to her children smitten with physical and spiritual maladies,” she said.

or Craig Nachsin, the fourth time’s a charm. The writer/ producer is greenlighting production on his fourth screenplay, “Time.” Shooting a trailer for the film last August to create some buzz, the producer has a core team attached that he is confident will produce a festival winner.
“We’re going to be shooting this in February and March and edit it in March, April and May to have it ready for Sundance, Cannes, Tribeca, Toronto,” Nachsin, who was born at Fifth and Shunk streets, said. “We have some really great people, we’ve been very fortunate — two of the hottest Philadelphia actors are on board and a lot of unbelievable talent.” The production, which is still in the fundraising process, is using the muchbuzzed-about Red camera that purports to shoot film-quality images on a digital platform. The artists at the helm are director Rob Horwitz and director of photography Bill Simone.
Lifestyles of the project” — are gearing up for production. “Rob, who is still a student, he is phenomenal. And he was reaching out to Bill Simone, who is our DP, and he is amazing with light and sound,” Nachsin, who is taking his first turn at producing a feature-length script, said. “It’s like a football team: It’s OK to have some young blood as long as you have some seasoned vets.” With the core group on board, scenes are already being scheduled at local areas, including a staged wedding at Galdo’s, 20th Street and Moyamensing Avenue. “I liked the relationship and rapport I have with [Galdo’s],” Nachsin said of choosing to shoot in the South Philly catering and entertainment complex. “They embraced the project with open arms and ‘Rocky’ is one of my favorite films. The first two Rockys, actually. I just absolutely love them and I want some of the film to have the Philadelphia feel to it. We will have some establishing shots and the lead characters are from Philly. There is a scene where you see him in his row home in Philly.” NACHSIN’S FAMILY OWNED and operated Karr Brothers, a men’s clothing store,
ger the only way. “‘The Truth About Average Guys.’ It was shot for $5,000. It was really good, you have to check it out,” Nachsin said about the 2009 short by writer/directors Ken Gayton and Jason Schaver. “I watched it and it blew me away. This movie is better than 85 percent of the Hollywood junk.” After speaking with Gayton, Nachsin realized he could produce a quality version of ‘Time’ on a budget much lower than he anticipated. He quickly set to work on pulling together his dream team to make it happen. “I love it all. I love producing. My director and I cast everybody,” Nachsin said, adding with a laugh, “They are all Eagles fans. I think all of them, that’s important when you’re making a film.” Nachsin and his crew have high hopes for the completed work and are heading in to production with smiles on their faces and faith in the cast they have pulled together. “The two most important things are the story and the actors,” he said. “And you need to be able to hear and see them.” SPR Comment at news/lifestyles.

on South Street for close to 40 years. When Nachsin was born, he spent his first few years with his grandparents who lived in Whitman before moving to Northeast Philly. “[I was there] when I was a little kid, that’s kind of where my roots are,” Nachsin, who now resides in New Jersey, said. After attending high school Nachsin began business school at Penn State but spent only two years there before leaving to tend to his burgeoning disc jockeying business. “I never finished. I still DJ part-time and I’ve been doing that since 1987,” he said. “My real love is — I mean I love music — but I absolutely am so passionate about [film]. “I got serious about it 17 years ago. I finished my first screenplay, finished it 16 years ago. Ever since I was a little kid — if the average kid watched three movies a week, I watched 25 movies a week. I did some sports and stuff, too, but I’d watch the creature double feature.” As times changed, so too did Nachsin.

“I finished watching ‘12 Angry Men’ and when I got done watching it, it resonated with me. I thought it was a really incredible concept,“ the 44-year-old said. “I finished writing ‘Time’ four years ago, give or take … and my finances changed a lot in the past four years. I’m a father of three and married.” Taking inspiration from the 1957 seminal Henry Fonda flick where 12 jurors debate the guilt and innocence of a defendant, Nachsin’s film is an extension of the dynamics of bringing strangers into a confined space and watching their interactions. “I want to say why this movie has impacted people so much. The one thing that makes the script so special is it’s real. It’s so not politically safe. It dives deep and really strikes a nerve,” Nachsin said of the story that features 10 characters in a hospital waiting room as they explore topics such as race, religion and homosexuality. “As a writer, everyone has an ultimate message. But this film has a lot of messages and I wanted it to be balanced and I wanted to have both sides.” As the pieces continue to fall into place, the cast and crew — a lot of whom, the producer says, are “working for the love

16 SOUTH PHILLY REVIEW I January 13, 2011
By Tom Cardella Columnist
The road kills
hen I think of Pat Hampshire, I think of winter. I see his shock of jet black hair being blown by the wind, light snow landing on his peacoat’s collar, his angular body striding purposefully toward our house. His skin appears almost alabaster against his dark hair — so white he could almost become invisible in the falling snow. The ’60s didn’t end for me with the assassinations of the Kennedys and Dr. Martin Luther King, as terrible as they were. In a deeply personal sense, the Age of Aquarius ended when my brother-in-law died. Too often the ’60s are portrayed as a drug-filled, free-love zone where everyone wore tie-dyed clothing and beads and listened to “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.” It wasn’t that way for many of us, especially Pat and me. We were both struggling with being fathers with responsibilities of which we never dreamed. I was older and further along in the game of life, but it was no clearer to me than him. I already had a stable income and he was still searching, but everything we did had an undercurrent of restlessness, born of the times. We didn’t know what we wanted, but we sensed there was more to life. It was almost unfair to be weighed down with the burden of caring for others when every day brought with it a sense of discovery. He had thought he had conquered his wanderlust with a stint in the Navy, but, during the ’60s, it took more than some time out at sea to cure a person’s longing. And me, I was already bound to a desk in an office without windows and without hope. I was trying to fool Pat — and maybe myself — into thinking I had found the secret to a happy and fulfilling life. I wanted him to settle down so we could all grow old together safely. Even in the early stages of our relationship, I sensed in the undercurrent of the footloose ’60s was the danger you might not survive. It was Robbie Robertson of The Band in the film, “The Last Waltz,” who said, “the road kills.” Well, the road not only killed musicians, but many of the others who chose it as well. In a sense, I guess you could say the road even killed the Kennedys and King. Pat and I lived the ’60s through the music. Oh what glorious music we discovered. Our hearts soared. Our minds traveled to distant places. Our souls broke free of all restraints. The music was our drug of
choice. We would gather in my living room with the lights down low and a stack of vinyl albums. We turned up the stereo so high that the speakers sometimes rattled. Most of my friends had not bought into the new sound of rock. I had not abandoned my love for Sinatra or progressive jazz, but this was something exciting that swept me away. We marveled at the new electric sound of Dylan on “Like a Rolling Stone,” were blown away by the rawness of Janis, were entranced by Hendrix and Traffic and tried together to encompass the greatness of The Beatles’ “White Album.” It didn’t take much to transport us. There was a rock group named Chicago that had mixed in a brassy jazz sound and none of us really knew what time it was. We started going to concerts too. You had to experience the sheer euphoria of rock concerts in the ’60s to understand the tumultuous epoch in which we were living. We saw them all — Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young (soon after the National Guard had opened fire on the kids protesting at Kent State and their harmonic music that night turned angry), Canned Heat, The Youngbloods, Jethro Tull and The Kinks. The music had inevitably become mixed with the politics against the Vietnam War. Pat’s neatly-groomed hair became shaggy (he started looking like Neil Young) and my sideburns expanded until they almost met under my chin. We eventually wound up at anti-war rallies to hear the music and protest the war, ending up at 15th and Chestnut to see Phil Ochs singing “I Ain’t Marching Anymore” at a McGovern campaign stop. We actually got ourselves to believe Nixon could be beaten. To my everlasting regret, I never convinced Pat to hang around. The last time I saw him alive he promised to let me try to get him a government job. It was the only time I know he lied to me. It was near Christmas when we heard from the police Pat had been found dead in upstate New York. I remember thinking the worst thing was he died alone. Maybe we all do. No matter how much Pat loved his wife and son, the rootless ’60s overpowered him as it did so many others. The road kills. What bothers me to this day is I don’t think Pat realized how much we loved him. Some people just don’t love themselves as much as we love them, and they carry that misapprehension to their grave. One by one, the comets that lit up the skies in the ’60s flamed out: Janis, Hendrix, Morrison, Mama Cass, even Rick Danko, who had warned about the dangers of the road, became one of its casualties. I don’t think of love and peace when I think about the ’60s. I think of death, of dying young, of dying for no damn good reason other than the road kills. The damned road kills.

Reel of roses
Dean (Ryan Gosling), left, and his wife, Cindy (Michelle Williams), share many emotional moments together in “Blue Valentine.”
By R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer
lue Valentine” is the best love story of 2010, but don’t dare walk into it expecting “The Notebook.” It features “Notebook” star Ryan Gosling, and a classic, downtownat-night courtship scene reminiscent of the one Gosling shared with Rachel McAdams, but this tragic tale is romantic for its irreparable loss and anguish, not rowboat rides in swan-filled ponds. Moreover, it is no Hollywood product. The breakout feature from writer/director Derek Cianfrance, it’s a naked and deeply soulful indie romance, and though it’s often devastating to watch, the feelings it evokes are far more genuine than any in your standard weepie. Anyone who’s even begun to feel a relationship’s pulse fading will find resonance in the salted wound that’s become the married life of Dean (Gosling) and Cindy (Michelle Williams), a young couple whose years together have only driven them apart. Within moments, you can sense the strain domestic life and parenthood have put on the pair’s relationship. She, a nurse, wants more from life; he, a lackadaisical taker of odd jobs, is content being a working-class husband and father. Using exemplary criss-crossing chronology, Cianfrance illustrates how Dean and Cindy came to this point, showing their love both as it develops and as it dies. Gosling and Williams each give careerbest performances (which is saying quite a lot), and each is highly persuasive while laying bare the pluses and minuses of an uncommonly human character. But Cianfrance is the true heavy-lifter when it comes to making both lovers complex and
sympathetic. He doesn’t want you to take sides. His story and his structure gradually offer crucial eye-openers about Dean and Cindy, causing your allegiance to flip-flop. When “Blue Valentine” finally pulls back, it’s a fair analysis of a doomed union, with no fingers left to point. This isn’t how movie romances are supposed to go. Events are supposed to meet a happy resolution. But Cianfrance isn’t working by any formula. His film is defined by truth, specifically one of the hardest ones to face: some things simply aren’t meant to be.
Blue Valentine R Four reels out of four Opening at the Ritz Five Friday
Recommended Rental Animal Kingdom Available Tuesday An outstanding Australian import, “Animal Kingdom” catches up with a crime family not as it’s on the rise, but as it’s unraveling. Following a slow-burning first half, the film explodes into a fry-yournerves thriller, making way for an indelible performance by Jacki Weaver and a myriad of twists, none of which you’ll see coming.

The Toque Stops Here Restaurant Review:

b.b.go Fusion Rice Bar By Phyllis Stein-Novack R e s ta u r a n t R e v i e w e r

b.b.go Fusion Rice Bar presents customers with a spin on the self-service restaurant, rendering fresh made-to-order Korean dishes. S ta f f P h o t o b y G r e g B e z a n i s
swirled the broth over the vegetables and strips of pork. Fresh greens, carrots, sliced scallions, slender green beans, mushrooms and onions were the vegetables of the day. The noodles were perfectly cooked; not a bit mushy. The vegetables retained a bit of crispness and married well with the seasoned broth which was ordered mild. You also can get the soup spicy. I added a tiny bit of chili paste to pep things up. The soup came with kimchi as well. There are a number of platters called dubbap on the menu that are served with steamed rice. You can find California roll and I tip my toque to the owners who state on the menu that the roll is made with imitation crabmeat. b.b.go Fusion Rice Bar is a welcome change from humdrum sandwiches and
salads. The flavors of Korea shine through and I like the fact that you can build a dish to suit your taste, especially if you are vegetarian. Three tips of the toque to b.b.go Fusion Rice Bar. SPR

I broke the egg on the rice and enjoyed eating it with chopsticks along with all the other ingredients. The dish is colorful — it contained shredded carrots, zucchini and romaine lettuce, mushrooms, onions, bean sprouts and scattered sesame seeds. A bit of soy and toasted sesame oil was gently tossed into the ingredients. I loved it. I could eat this at least twice a week, changing from chicken to pork to vegetarian and back to beef. My lunch was a special that day. It came with a small bowl of clear broth and contained very tiny cubes of tofu, which added texture, along with some sliced scallions and shredded greens. A small dish of kimchi was cool but packed a spicy kick. This version was not so hot that I could not eat it. I rather enjoyed it. A small ramekin of red chili paste, however, was a bit too strong for my taste. A Rice Krispies Treat was something sweet for dessert. Why? I have no idea. On another visit, I wanted soup. I noticed a woman eating a big, deep white bowl filled with noodles. “That’s rameon with vegetables,” the woman behind the counter said. I asked if I could have it with some meat. When my number was called, I took a plastic soup spoon, a pair of chopsticks and sat down to read my newspaper. This soup ($9) was so hot, I had to read for at least 10 minutes before I could enjoy my tasty, hearty lunch. I pulled the slender egg noodles apart with my chopsticks and

y definition, a fast-food restaurant is a place where you line up at a counter, place your order, pay for it, eat in or take out. The majority of the burgers or fried-who-knows-what sandwiches are made in advance and kept warm under a heat lamp. The food never tastes fresh. My question is this: Can a self-service restaurant serve tasty food which is actually good for you? I think so. I’ve been lunching at b.b.go Fusion Rice Bar on South 18th Street. The restaurant is open until 9 p.m. and features an all-day, all-night menu. The website states there is no MSG in their dishes and no additives are used in anything they prepare. b.b.go offers fresh made-to-order Korean fare with a nod to Japan and China here and there. There are daily specials along with vegetarian options. b.b.go is a brightly lit space with booths and banquettes along one wall. There’s a TV on all day if you want to catch up on the news or weather. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I never sampled a bibimbap until recently. The smiling woman behind the counter explained it to me. You get a choice of beef, chicken, pork or vegetarian. Bibimbap means “mixed rice” in Korean. Various ingredients are placed sideby-side in a round deep bowl. A mound of rice sits in the center topped with a fried egg. You are supposed to mix everything together. I ordered the dish ($10.75) prepared with tender strips of marinated beef.

Preparing popular recipes from Italy can include informative geography lessons. Instead of traveling overseas, put together a menu highlighting the country’s different regions. By Phyllis Stein-Novack Food Columnist
week before Christmas, I was treated to a cooking lesson with chef Andrea Luca Rossi who taught me how to prepare baccalà Venetian style. Several readers thought this was culinary heresy because Rossi and his mother always cook it in milk. This is the Venetian way. I poured over my collection of Italian cookbooks and learned that each region of Italy has certain ways of preparing a plethora of dishes. Minestrone is a case in point. According to Marcella Hazan, there are as many recipes for minestrone as there are regions in Italy. “A vegetable soup will tell you where you are in Italy almost as precisely as a map. There are the soups of the south, leaning heavily on tomato, garlic and oil, sometimes containing pasta; there are those of the center, heavily fortified with beans and the soups of the north with rice,” she wrote in her first tome, “The Classic Italian Cookbook.” I make minestrone Southern style all the time. During the recent blizzard, I decided to take a different Italian culinary route. Tuscan White Bean Soup with Sausages turned out to be a triumph of flavors and textures.
There was not a tomato in sight. Or, should I say in the pot. My minestre always includes white beans and some sort of sturdy green which is swirled in at the end of the simmering time. I like spinach because it wilts easily and I do not have to blanch it first as I would with Swiss chard or escarole. I never add pasta because it becomes mushy if the soup sits in the fridge. Sweet Italian sausage turns minestre into a complete meal. If the sausages are slightly frozen, it is a snap to slice and sauté them. As I sauté the meat, I add some crushed hot red pepper flakes. It gives the soup a slightly hot kick. Using canned beans makes soup making easy if you want to pull out your pot at the last minute. My pantry always is stocked withan array of them. For me, homemade stock is a thing of the past. The last time I made it, I forgot to set a big bowl under the colander as I strained the stock. It all swirled down the drain. Goodbye hours of stock making. Hello top-quality packaged stocks. If you have rinds of Parmigiano-Reggiano in the refrigerator, add them to the pot. This is a tip from Hazan. It gives the soup a marvelous flavor and adds texture. Serve Tuscan White Bean Soup with Grilled Bread and a glass of your favorite wine. Dessert could be something sweet or a plate of cheese and fruit. Baked apples or poached pears are my choice.
■ Tuscan White Bean Soup ■ with Sausages Ingredients:
Olive oil, to coat the bottom of a 4-quart pot 1 onion, diced 1 shallot, diced 4 ribs of celery, diced 3 carrots, peeled and diced Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste 3 cans of Great Northern beans or any white bean of choice, drained and rinsed 1 32-ounce package of chicken or vegetable stock 3 cups of cold water Sprinkling of dried basil Sprinkling of dried oregano Sprinkling of pure garlic powder 1 8-ounce bag of fresh baby spinach leaves 2 tablespoons of olive oil 5 sweet Italian sausages, sliced Hot pepper ﬂakes, to taste
Directions: Heat the oil over medium-high in a 4-quart pot. Add the onion, shallot, celery and carrots. Sauté the vegetables for about five minutes. Add the remaining ingredients except for the spinach, oil, sausages and pepper flakes. Bring the contents of the pot to a boil, lower to simmer, place the lid askew and cook for about 30 minutes, or
until a piece of carrot pierces easily with a knife. Add the spinach and swirl it into the soup. Turn the heat off, but keep the pot covered. To make the sausages, heat the oil over medium-high in a 10-inch skillet. Add the sausages and sauté them for about 10 minutes. As you sauté, sprinkle on the pepper flakes. Add the sausages to the pot. Serves six. Note from Phyllis: When I made the soup the first time, I had two cans of beans on hand. I added two Yukon Gold potatoes to the pot and it was delicious.
■ Grilled Bread ■ Ingredients:
Slices of your favorite Tuscan farmhouse loaf 1 tablespoon of olive oil 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
Directions: Heat the oil and butter over medium. When it is thoroughly melted, add the bread. Grill the bread, turning the slices several times until golden brown. Note from Phyllis: A dense chewy Tuscan loaf works well as does a sourdough bread. SPR Comment at www.southphillyreview.com/foodand-drink/features.

‘This year, I am focusing on a more consistent basis, no matter the opposition.’ — Antonio “Scoop” Jardine
Orange you impressed? Two local basketball products have led their college squad to an undefeated record and a high national ranking.
By Joseph Myers R e v i e w s ta f f w r i t e r
yracuse Orange junior point guard Antonio “Scoop” Jardine and senior power forward Rick Jackson do not deal in ambiguity. “I just want to win,” the 6-foot-3 Jardine said during a Monday afternoon phone interview from Upstate New York. “I want to win this year,” the 6-foot-9 Jackson added. The local products revealed this season’s main goal Monday, as their Big East squad prepared for last night’s conference clash against St. John’s at Madison Square Garden. Entering the contest, their Orange sported a perfect 16-0 record and the No. 4 ranking in two national polls. It marks the program’s best start since the 1999-00 team opened 19-0. Last season, the squad finished 30-5 and advanced to the NCAA Sweet 16 with Jardine and Jackson playing prominent roles. The duo is hoping to take coach Jim Boeheim’s gang deep into this year’s Big Dance. In his first full season as a starter, Jardine, who prepped with Jackson at Ss. Neumann-Goretti High School, 1736 S. 10th St., averaged 13.8 points per game in the Orange’s first 16 tilts. His average put him at 17th in the elite conference. A solid ball handler, he ranked second in the league in assists with six per game and led his team in scoring three times. His season-high for points, 27, came in a 66-55 victory over Detroit Nov. 16. Factor in that he is averaging career-bests in six categories, and one can agree with Jardine when he discusses this season’s success. “This year, I am focusing on a more consistent basis, no matter the opposition,” Jardine said. “Coach Boeheim has given me a bigger role this year, and that job requires that I meet expectations.” Leading an undefeated team has not caused Jardine any added pressure. He sees Boeheim’s style as a continuation of Neumann-Goretti coach Carl Arrigale’s. “Coach Arrigale is like my father,” Jardine, who grew up on the 1800 block of South Taylor Street, said of the Saints’ head. “He had me work hard. Courtesy of
Rick Jackson, left, and Antonio “Scoop” Jardine have paced Syracuse to the school’s best start in 11 seasons. The two rank in the top 20 among Big East scorers. P h o t o s p r o v i d e d b y S y r a c u s e U n i v e r s i t y At h l e t i c C o m m u n i c at i o n s
him, I am ready for anything.” Of Boeheim, he is equally complimentary. “He is the best in the country,” Jardine said of Boeheim, whose 34-year Syracuse stint includes five Big East tournament titles, 27 trips to the NCAA Tournament and the 2003 NCAA crown. “He is focused all the time.” Boeheim diligence inspires him to keep the Orange bright. “If the team needs me to score 20 points and get 20 assists, I’ll try my best to do so,” he said. With the team’s non-conference schedule behind, Jardine is ready for the hectic Big East slate, which, including last night’s game, will involve 15 games by March 5. The schedule features road trips to Pittsburgh and Connecticut, as well as
two games against both Villanova and Georgetown. In other words, the Orange will need every ounce of Jardine’s grit. “We have a few statement games. I would like to beat Pitt on the road (Jan. 17) and Louisville at Louisville (Feb. 12),” Jardine, who credits last year’s senior trio of Arinze Onuaku, Andy Rautins and Wesley Johnson for their mentoring him, said. “We’re just trying to get better as a team. I am using my leadership role to help us to that,” he said. JACKSON PROVIDES THE post presence the Orange will need to overcome the aforementioned foes. The rebounding force from 23rd and Jackson streets is averaging career-highs in six categories. Of those, Jackson is proudest of his minutes (33.7) “I credit my start to improved condition-
ing,” Jackson said of dropping 20 pounds. “I’ve hit the weight room more and improved my eating. Doing so has given me more energy to stay in there longer.” His discipline has yielded huge results. In the Big East, he ranked first in rebounding (11.9), fourth in blocks (2.3), fifth in field-goal percentage (.559) and 20th in scoring (13.2) prior to last night’s game. Five times he led the Orange in scoring and snatched the most boards in 14 battles. He twice posted 18-point efforts, the first coming in a 100-43 win over Colgate Dec. 11 and the other nine days later in a 97-55 victory over Morgan State. His rebound high, 22, came against Detroit. Jackson credits the Sweet 16 loss to Butler for his transformation from a decent player into one with professional credibility. “After we lost, Coach Boeheim and I talked, and he told me he would need me in better shape,” Jackson said. He immediately began to mold his body for the rigors of his senior year. “I was not happy with my game,” he said. With his new physique, Jackson feels he is speedier on offense and more confident around the goal. “I enjoy helping on both ends and especially going after rebounds,” he said. His improved frame and the Orange’s blazing start, which left the school as one of five unbeatens entering last night’s games, have him thinking of the pros but not with more ferocity than his current mission. “We feel schools are gunning for us. Every game is a statement game, especially in the Big East, which has so many great teams,” he said. Jardine and Jackson are aware the Orange have not been beyond the Sweet 16 since ’03. They wish to end the postseason slump. “I’m confident we’ll do much better than last year,” Jardine said. Jackson, four times a Big East Honor Roll member, concurs. “We’ll definitely go past the Sweet 16,” he said. “I see us ending with a bang.” SPR Contact Staff Writer Joseph Myers at jmyers@ southphillyreview.com or ext. 124.

ith my fervent dislike of the Eagles, one would think I would have watched their 21-16 loss to Green Bay in the Wild Card round. Tuning in would have given me ample chances to root for the likely-NFC representative in the Super Bowl. However, I refrained, sure that petitions outside of church for an Eagles’ loss are as solid as prayers for good health inside my chosen worship site. I have followed the Eagles for 21 years and know many excellent people who see a title coming through town shortly. People knock me for worshipping a figure whose second coming is 2,000 years in the making. When is the Eagles’ first coming going to materialize? More importantly, how much longer can Andy Reid’s bunch maxi-
mize its demented gift for fooling people? Hey, I have as many devotions to teams as I do to saints, and some of those teams were miserable when I began following them (The Detroit Red Wings of the late 1980s, The Boston Red Sox of the mid 1990s, and New England Patriots for most of their existence prior to the early 2000s come to mind), so I know about trying to rouse up belief when other teams are celebrating. Fans of the Birds, you have a tough road. Young talent abounds on the team, but what will come of it, and when will this squad’s Kool-Aid finally cease to be appealing to people? Nobody said that people have to determine their new year’s resolutions by Jan. 1. How about thousands of my brethren resolve Jan. 9 to forget about the Eagles? Dismissing them will surely be easier than upholding other plans. If fans cannot lose the 10, 20, or whatever extra pounds they have, they should instead dump the 53 dead weights for whom they root.
