cottish poet Robert Burns noted in 1785 that “The best-laid schemes of mice and men often go awry,” and 228 years later, Christopher Norris is altering that sentiment by succeeding at endeavors he had never envisioned attempting. The 26-year-old entrepreneur received his latest unexpected honor Feb. 21, as the Philly DoGooders competition dubbed him an “Emerging Leader” for founding and heading Techbook Online Corp., an integrated Internet, multi-media publishing and sustainable marketing and news organization. It also commended Diversified Community Services, 1529 S. 22nd St., for a video on Western Learning Center, 1613 South St., a 42-year-old childcare center under its direction. “The news came completely out of left field,” the resident of 18th and Dickinson See DOGOODERS page 10 >> Athletes and school administrators visited a West Passyunk educational facility to celebrate the birthday of a popular children’s author.

Get out of town

To the Editor: The Nutter Administration has got to be kidding with these assessments. Fair and accurate, seriously? What is fair and accurate about increasing the taxes of residents who pay their taxes every year and ignoring those who own homes and businesses who repeatedly thumb their noses at the Department of Revenue? How much income is in arrears? The Nutter Administration should put more effort into collecting that money. Instead it hires these people to assess our properties who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know anything about our homes. For example: I live on a small side street, and a relative lives on a very busy main street right around the corner from me. My assessment has my home being worth more than my relatives. My relativeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assessment is significantly less than his next door neighborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Even though in 2013 they paid the same amount. Now the neighborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taxes are almost $500 more. If nothing changes, my taxes will increase by $882. There is no way I can afford to pay an increase. If nothing changes, I will be living in my sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garage in New Jersey. I propose that South Philly show a united front and put For Sale signs in our front windows. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show the Nutter Administration that we are fed up.

for taking on this difficult task of welcoming the seniors [from Samuel S. Fels South Philadelphia Center, 2407 S. Broad St., and the Jacob and Esther Stiffel Senior Center, 604 Porter St.]. Barbara Gillette and Debbi Hoffer coordinated this change and added additional events. Their fine staff and many volunteers made new members welcome and comfortable. The exercise classes headed by Deana Sabasino are both healthy and enjoyable. Each Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10:30 to 1130 a.m. the seniors get their needed physical activity while the staff makes it fun with the echoes of laughter and joy emanating from the auditorium. The auditorium is packed but we can always make room for more. The 25-person advisory board is headed by Grace Jones and meets once a month. There also is a monthly full membership meeting. Fred and Lena Olivieri preside over the dances twice month a quartet provides the music.

ATTENTION SOUTH PHILLY HOMEOWNERS!

FREE COMMUNITY SEMINAR ON THE ACTUAL VALUE INITIATIVE The Actual Value Initiative, known as A.V.I., is a questionable attempt by the Nutter administration to modernize the city’s property tax assessment system. Our middle-class, South Philadelphia community is likely to be hardest hit by A.V.I. It may force long-time residents who can’t afford a steep increase in their property taxes to sell their homes and leave the city. There is help for all concerned homeowners in South Philly. Join 1st Ward Leader, former Pennsport Civic Association President, and IBEW Local 98 Business Manager John J. Dougherty and a panel of real estate and legal experts for an insightful and FREE seminar on A.V.I., including information and immediate help on:

Takeout take down A teen was shot eight times after picking up Chinese food in Grays Ferry Saturday. ■ By Amanda L. Snyder Review Managing Editor

A

n 18-year-old retrieved his takeout order, but was unable to escape gunre and safely make it back to his car. The man exited Twin Dragon, 2700 Dickinson St., where he grabbed a late dinner at 11:40 p.m. Saturday, but as he walked toward his car, he spotted an armed man firing across Dickinson at him, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. He sprinted westbound on Dickinson until he reached 30th Street. He was struck eight times, but police would not disclose the wounds’ locations. Officers responded and transported the victim to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in stable condition while detectives recovered ballistics evidence at the scene, Tolliver said. Police did not have a detailed description of the offender at press time. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-685-1635, text PPDTIP (773847) or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

Road rage resulted in two men firing at another in Grays Ferry Friday afternoon. The encounter between a 43-year-old and the occupants of a SUV on the 3500 block of Grays Ferry Avenue led to multiple bullets coming from the driver and one of three passengers of the SUV, which fled south on 35th Street and east on Wharton after the incident at 4:31 p.m., Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said.

Police recovered ballistics and physical evidence at the scene. Police are searching for a white or tan mid-size SVU, possibly a Lexus. One of the shooters was described as black, age 24, 5-foot-6, stocky and having a tattoo of flames on his right cheek and two gold teeth while the other was listed as black with a dark complexion, 5-foot-7, 160 pounds and having long braids. It was unclear which gunman was the driver. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-685-1635, text PPDTIP (773847) or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

Dropped crime Two teens attempted to jump a man in Point Breeze for his phone last week. The 25-year-old was on the 1800 block of Moore Street at 12:55 p.m. Feb. 27 when the pair punched him, knocked him to the ground and went through his pockets, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. They were unsuccessful in stealing his phone and fled in an unknown direction. One of the offenders was described as black with a dark complexion, age 18 and wearing a blue puffy jacket, blue jeans and a gray and blue Aeropostale knit hat. A detailed description of the other perpetrator was not available at press time. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-685-1635, text PPDTIP (773847) or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

Unsafe lunch break While eating lunch in his car, a man was robbed in South of South last week. The 20-year-old was parked on the 1500 block of Christian Street at noon Feb. 26 when an unknown man walked up to the driver’s side window and pointed a gun at the man, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The gunman snatched the man’s cell from his lap and demanded money. The victim took $50 from his wallet and handed it over. The offender fled northbound on 15th Street and hopped in the passenger’s side of a dark-colored auto that was driven by an unknown person and headed in an unknown direction. The offender was described as black, 6-foot-2, 180 pounds, having a full beard and wearing a black jacket with dollar signs on it, faded blue jeans and tan boots.

Motive switch A South of South vehicle theft backfired and resulted in the thieves robbing their victim instead. A 31-year-old pizza deliveryman for SliCE, 1180 S. 10th St., waited for a customer to answer the door on the 1000 block of South Colorado Street when a man attempted to drive away in his automobile, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The pizza employee chased after the car and was able to stop the heist since a parked car was blocking the road. However, another man put a black handgun to his head, said, “Give me everything you got” and took about $250 and a cell phone from his pockets. The offenders fled in a silver or champagne-colored Buick Regal from about 2002, which headed west on Washington Avenue, Tolliver said. The pair of male perpetrators were described as black and age 16 to 17. The armed thief was 6 foot and wearing all black clothing while the other was 5-foot8 and wearing all gray clothing. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-685-1635, text PPDTIP (773847) or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

Swiped early

Spray save A woman escaped an attempted robbery by fighting back with Mace in Newbold/ Point Breeze Friday. The 27-year-old was walking home from work at 10 p.m. on the 1100 block of South Broad Street when an unknown man approached her with a undetermined object in his hand and said, “I have a gun. This is a robbery.” The woman used pepper spray on the man as he attempted to grab her purse. Upon being unsuccessful, he walked westbound on Ellsworth Street. The offender was described as black with a light complexion, in his late-20s, 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-8, thin and wearing a light green jacket. He also appeared to have scabs or scars on his face.

A Seussical week

Athletes and school administrators visited a West Passyunk educational facility to celebrate the birthday of a popular children’s author. ■ By Alexis Abate Review Contributor

T

he inside of Universal Vare Middle Charter School, 2100 S. 24th St., resembled the pages of a Dr. Seuss book Feb. 27 as Principal Taryn Roane — accessorized in The Cat in the Hat’s white gloves and red-and-whitestriped hat — walked down her institution’s marble staircase alongside Philadelphia Eagles’ cornerback Brandon Hughes. Faculty and staff were dressed in Seussical attire and cafeteria workers served up green eggs and ham for breakfast in honor of the best-selling book as the West Passyunk school expanded the birthday celebration of the renown children’s author Theodor Seuss Geisel into a weeklong event, which ran in conjunction with the National Education Association’s Read Across America Day. Roane escorted Hughes down the hall and into Samantha Goldman’s kindergarten classroom. The uniformed Eagles’ cornerback Brandon Hughes children engrossed in the beginning of a movement read “Oh, the Thinks You Can Think!” to break — an activity designed to get the children up Samantha Goldman’s kindergarten class after they’ve been sitting still for a while. The teacher as part of Universal Vare’s extended Read asked a few questions and introduced Hughes to the Across America program. group. As the youngsters sat cross-legged attentiveS ta f f p h o t o b y G r e g B e z a n i s ly on the multi-colored carpet, the teacher handed Hughes a Dr. Seuss hat of his own before he started to recite Seuss’ imaginative “Oh, the Thinks You Can Think!” “They made it easy and I enjoyed reading to the kids,” and-white hat-shaped word games on construction paper Hughes, who also entertained Anna Candeloro’s kinder- with Somebody-Wanted-But-So-Then written on individgarten class, said. ual glued pieces.

Universal Companies’ corporate staffers, including Pam Breezeati, behavior specialist who secured Hughes, and Stephen Brady, executive vice president of operations. Teachers’ parents also came in to make it a family affair. “I think it’s been awesome and we have had a really great turnout,” Roane said. “Perhaps we should do it more often.” Holly Sofield and Taylor Garen, pre-junior Drexel University cheerleaders were excited to read “Wacky Wednesday” to Anna Candeloro’s students. “They asked us what school we went to and what we wanted to be when we got older,” Sofield said. The kindergarten teacher used the business and bioengineering majors as prime examples of why reading is fundamental. “The kids are not used to readers being such a different blend,” Roane said about the overwhelming response in guest readers. Teachers catalogued the number of books that were read or shared throughout the week and the children voted on their favorites Monday with the middle-schoolers choosing “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” and the kindergartners selecting “Dr. Seuss’s ABC.” With about a third of the student population receiving special education services, reading continues to be an essential endeavor within the building and for all involved. “If you have an opportunity to make a meaningful impact on their lives in some way, why not?” Hughes said.

DOGOODERS continued from page 1 streets said last week of the distinction as one of five thriving young contributors to and catalysts for social growth. “From it, I’m hoping to establish relationships that will grow organically and continue to spark discussions on the power of education and collaboration.” With no elaborate multi-media background prior to Techbook’s 2009 formation, the Point Breeze figure and alumnus of Smith Academics Plus, 1900 Wharton St., had felt music, particularly drumming, would become his vocation, but his rapid rise led professional contacts to nominate him for commendation from DoGooders. The contest, a division of a national, YouTube-backed challenge gauging the creative and effective use of video to promote the nonprofit sector, included irony for Norris, whose participation involved no video element. “I began Techbook with one basic question, how can technology better help you succeed in school and in life,” he said of aligning himself with Philly In Focus, a local video and interactive media network supporting efforts to strengthen the city’s local content. “As I’ve added allies, I’ve published for a number of entities, including Comcast, and am in discussions with World Wrestling Entertainment [Inc.] personnel to shoot a promo video when they come to town on March 25 at the Wells Fargo Center, [3601 S. Broad St.,] to tout their WrestleMania Reading Challenge.” A member of what he termed a frequently “crowded and turbulent field,” Norris has sought to unite his educational leanings with global government offices to craft an interactive cultural understanding. He furthered his area outreach two years ago by forming Joint Unification Structures That Integrate Creativity into Education, a coalition of corporations, educators and nonprofts providing educational options to assist teachers, empower students through project learning and to change the overall structure of business. Though DoGooders, which over five months judged entries from 96 nonprofits for the five contested categories, endowed him with kudos for his latest love and will help his networking aims by offering in-kind services such as content promotion and recognition during next month’s national volunteer week reception. Norris, who runs Techbook from Center City’s The Philadelphia Building, hopes his initial interest will yield more connections. The self-taught drummer is studying the physiological benefits of his pastime and, true to his secondary pursuits, is leveraging that effort with educational videos. With

his impending WWE meeting and participation in a video-based drumless drumming competition whose results will come out next month, Norris soon could consider his spring as fruitful as his winter, which includes winning Brother of the Year from The Brothers’ Network — an organization geared toward helping black men to gain the power to define themselves in an environment of humanity, support, respect and intellectual stimulation. “I don’t think my candle burns less because I help people to light theirs,” he said. “My honor is a testament to serving because when you generally want to see other people succeed, the universe works for you.” SINCE ITS 1968 incorporation, Diversified has come to reign as Point Breeze’s largest community-based organization, with nearly 8,000 children, youths, adults and families receiving counseling, economic, educational and housing assistance. Its early education focus, complete with concentration on promoting each child’s cognitive, creative, emotional, physical and social development, has bred the Dixon Learning Academy, 2201 Moore St., and West-

ern, the latter inspiring the two-minute clip that claimed a third-place Viewer’s Choice Award in the competition. “We were surprised because there were so many good groups,” first-year executive director Otis Bullock Jr. said Monday of meriting renown for the piece titled “Western Learning Center: They’ll Have a Ball. “Needless to say, we’re still very excited.” Learning of the opportunity to submit through its partnership with the United Way, Diversified made use of what Bullock tabbed “the most creative” among five promotional videos they had commissioned. In it, a racially diverse set of youngsters watches as a large red ball courses through the building. As it does, viewers glimpse many of the site’s 90 enrollees engaging in art, creative movement and music. At the conclusion, a girl picks up the ball and joins a circle of her peers before throwing it in the air to serve as a metaphor for the elevated sense of hope that Bullock and secondyear center director Tynnetta Beyah wish to inspire. “All our children receive exposure to the same character-building, thought-provoking activities,” Bullock, whose core bunch

consists of 13-month-olds to 5-year-olds and whose secondary crop includes 6- to 12-year-olds in afterschool enrichment programs and a summer camp, said of the curriculum, which promotes self-control, respect and responsibility. That is not to say it leaves no room for fun, as a few 3-year-olds in a Head Start classroom demonstrated Monday by matching letters with vivid pictures. “We have multiple stations for activity, and the children know to visit each one when they want to express themselves,” Beyah, particularly thrilled to have a new library for their eager minds, said. Like Norris, who has worked with Diversified by giving drumming lessons at Smith, Bullock looks forward to the inkind services to aid marketing and communication campaigns. “Western’s neighborhood has changed from a troubled one into an upwardly mobile, professional-heavy spot,” he said. “DoGooders is going to help us to go from being the best-kept secret to not being a secret at all.” SPR Contact Staff Writer Joseph Myers at jmyers@ southphillyreview.com or ext. 124.

Forever Young Nursery School and Daycare held a very successful benefit for the family of Aubrey and Deonna Smart who lost their house to a fire on Christmas Day. It was a synergistic communion of fun and beneficence, there was a Valentine Dance followed by a sleepover for the children. Thanks to the Forever Young Community and the generosity of many local businesses, there was a raffle for a number of valuable prizes. Money was raised and good will was provided. In a time when all you hear about is division and discord, Forever Young with the help and assistance of the community and all of our better angels at large proved that when it matters, we can all get along. Thanks To All.

Before Bringing your items to us, take them to other dealers. Have them give you legitimate offers in writing. Then bring your jewelry and written offers to one of our locations. Although no one can guarantee with certainty they are paying the highest price for an article at any particular time, we will strive to beat most legitimate written offers.

A Note Regarding the Up To Prices listed in this Ad The condition and rarity of an item determines its price. If an item is in excellent condition and very rare it might be worth the up to price, or

even more. However, if an item is in poor condition, the value will be lower. For example, a 1927 S Quarter could be worth $7,000 in new condition or less than $20 in poor condition. The up to price reflects items of exceptional quality and rarity. Although it is unlikely you will have these items due to their extreme rarity, feel free to bring whatever items you may have and we will evaluate them free of charge.

s multifaceted as the human condition he enjoys exploring, Aaron Cromie deems denying thoughts on theatrical limitations an inherent component of his vocation. Aiming to captivate audiences and incite his imagination, he has established himself as a creative chameleon capable of greatness within many disciplines. Beginning tonight, he will become reacquainted with classic theater as the director of Theatre Confetti’s “Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them,” a work laden with themes central to his sensitivities. “It’s a play that addresses longing, abandonment and acceptance,” the resident of the 1600 block of Tasker Street said last week of the two-yearold brainchild of A. Rey Pamatmat. “Because of their lives’ lack of supervision, the characters must find a balance between desires to be kids and wishes to be independent, as well as finding the strength to give themselves permission to be in love.” The overseer earned the opportunity to helm the Philly premiere through his friendship with Theatre Confetti’s co-artistic director and South Philly

Aware of his credentials, including his writing and starring duties in last fall’s 1812 Productions “David and Aaron Go To Work,” she offered the five-time Barrymore Award winner the assignment last year, with Cromie finding the piece and the personnel enthralling. “With such talented actors and designers, it was easy to find a reason to be a part of this project,” the 40-year-old said of his team, which includes Justin Jain, another South Philly-based thespian. “The story has everyone navigating through emotional circumstances and is helping me to better my goals of inviting viewers to be interpreters of, and participants in, what they see.” A recipient of a 2012 Steinberg/American Theatre Critics Association citation, the dramatic comedy will mark his first collaboration with Theatre Confetti, formerly Nice People Theatre Co. with performances at the Old City Power Plant. Set in the 1990s, it analyzes the perils of adolescent angst and forced maturity, with its execution situating Cromie in a world he has often frequented yet also commonly remained distant from — textbased theater. “I love classic theater,” the multidisci-

He has seen his dedication pay off through his receipt of the aforementioned awards, yet gaining distinction has not supplanted giving satisfaction as his ultimate task. His Theatre Confetti charge will be to convey the power of love, which he is doing offstage as well through his two-year relationship with Mary Tuomanen. The two picked up an Individual Project Grant from the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage last year to devise their first full-length theatrical work, “The Body Lautrec,” an examination of French painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec’s pieces and brittle frame. With Cromie as the lead, the opus will have a work-in-progress showing at The Mütter Museum in April, the same month he and another collaborator, Gwen Rooker, will offer their designs for the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts’ “The Trial of Murderous Mary.” “Whatever the work, it’s all about transcending and evolving,” Cromie said.

By Tom Cardella Columnist

Stuff and such

M

arissa Mayer has created a firestorm. The new president and CEO at Yahoo! has announced a ban on employees working at home. Working at home (also known as telecommuting) is a relatively new concept. My familiarity with how it works is limited to my time working for the federal government. Some employees are allowed to work from home one or two days a week, assuming the job can be technologically done from home. The concept is very popular with employees, especially working mothers, and those with a long commute. Some firms have designated certain positions as full-time work at home positions, as was the case at Yahoo! before Mayer was placed in charge. Slate. com claims that studies have shown that the scenario is good for both employers and employees. Mayer’s explanation for banning work at home is that it is better for employees to work side-by-side and share ideas than to work from the relative isolation. I have mixed feelings about this debate. If I were the new CEO, I might have opted for allowing particularly productive employees to continue working at home, but more likely would have restricted it to a day or two a week. But that misses the point. It is not up to me, you, or any journalist to second guess Mayer. Working at home is a privilege not a right. It is Mayer’s neck that is on the line, so she should be allowed to make the decisions that affect whether her company will rise or fall. If Mayer is wrong, she will be gone. She has been placed in charge of a company that was struggling and has decided to make changes. One of those changes is whether to allow her employees to work at home. Those of us who feel that she has made the wrong decision will not lose our jobs because of the decision. Only Mayer will feel the heat. ... A lot of Philadelphians are upset over their new property tax reassessments. Actual Value Initiative is not perfect, but makes a helluva lot more sense than the old system of assessing property (whatever that system was). There is no real estate assessment system that can deal with the unfairness of long-term residents on fixed incomes who face significant tax hikes because their property increased in value. The reason is the concept of a property tax

■ s o u t h p h i l l y r e v i e w.c o m

is unfair on the face of it because it is not based on ability to pay. We are stuck with trying to “fix” the new system so we don’t drive citizens out of their homes. It will take fair hearings and a thoughtful process to do so. It won’t be easy. ... Once again extension of the Voting Rights Act is coming under fire from those who believe it is time that we stop singling out the South for past sins. Efforts to stop minorities from voting still goes on. As the ill-conceived Voter ID law in Pennsylvania showed, these efforts are not confined to the South. The Voting Rights Act should be expanded to include all 50 states so no group of politicians can succeed in preventing folks from voting will help their cause. The stigma no longer exclusively belongs to the South. ... It used to be that television was the poor stepchild of Hollywood films. I don’t think it is any longer the case. The best shows on TV in recent years compare very favorably with the cream of the crop from Hollywood. This year’s Oscar winner “Argo” was good, but the Showtime series “Homeland” in the same genre is better. I’m not cherry picking. Recent Oscar winners such as “The Artist” and “The King’s Speech” were good, but I’ll take TV’s “Downton Abbey,” “Breaking Bad” and “Mad Men” any day. I don’t think any film has made as big an impact as “The Sopranos” or “Six Feet Under” in the last decade. I don’t think it is even close. ... That judge who found a cop not guilty after a video clearly showed that he punched a woman in the face at a Puerto Rican Day Parade ought to turn in his robes and get a new pair of glasses. Not only did he ignore the evidence, but he also had the gall to blame the media for showing the video over and over again. I am not pro or anti-cop. My dad was a cop and I have contributed to various police fundraisers. I also have been an American Civil Liberties Union member at different times of my life. Like my late father, I support good cops and hate bad ones. Any cop that punches a woman in the face without cause does not deserve to wear the uniform. He should not get his job back. ... It was great to see the City’s transit system honored. SEPTA was selected as the No. 1 mass transit system in the country. As someone who rides SEPTA often, I know the system isn’t perfect. But I have found that for the most part, the drivers are courteous, the buses run reasonably close to schedule, and I was thrilled to hear that SEPTA’s budget is in balance. Yeah, I also ride free.

Oscar Diggs/Oz (James Franco) meets Theodora (Mila Kunis), left, before she becomes known as The Wicked Witch of the West.

Time to meet the wizard By R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer

S

ure to please widescreen-spectacle junkies while outraging some Oz purists, Disney’s “Oz the Great and Powerful,” may very well prove divisive, which is ultimately ironic for such an innocuous flick. Based on L. Frank Baum’s “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,” this über-Hollywood pseudo-prequel to the Judy Garland classic takes a forthright more-is-more approach, sparing no expense while rendering the classic land in showy computer-generated imagery. It’s sometimes a bit much, and what’s more, time has not been kind to the world just over the rainbow, for after 70plus years of post-“Wizard of Oz” fantasy, the realm seems suddenly nondescript. Sure, there’s the Yellow Brick Road, the poppy field, and the Emerald City (whose architecture is far more explored), but there’s also flora and fauna that read “Alice in Wonderland,” rock formations that bring “Avatar” to mind, Oz folk who seem to hail from Whoville, and scenic set pieces that could fit just fine in Middle-Earth. The plot, you ask? This “Oz” largely functions as a road-paver for Dorothy Gale’s adventure, with the con-artist Wiz (a game James Franco) earning his hallowed place as the land’s bag-o’-tricks leader, Glinda (Michelle Williams) making her intro as pure-souled friend to Munchkins and the like, and sisters Theodora (Mila Kunis) and Evanora (Rachel Weisz) forging their wickedness as two witches all will eventually recognize. In the minus column, the weak script has too many wink-wink, modern-skewed gags; the narrative builds to an unfortunate, blockbuster-requisite battle; and

Kunis, for one, is glaringly miscast. But those who can see past all of that, and not obsess over the sanctity of the Oz mythos, can really appreciate what director Sam Raimi has achieved here. Making fine use of the 3-D format and offering some awesome action sequences (like when our Wizard pulls a Dorothy and gets swept away by a cyclone), Raimi unabashedly orchestrates a fun house ride. Though sadly stripped of nuance, this is a cheeky film about illusion and showmanship, and the director, thankfully, is plenty adept at both.

The highly deserving victor of this year’s Visual Effects Oscar, Ang Lee’s “Life of Pi” was one of last year’s grandest and most gorgeous technical feats, boasting peerless computer-generated creations, ocean-set action that will never be forgotten, and mystic phenomena that constantly wows the eyes. A distressingly bad script hampers the film’s bookends, but nothing tarnishes the awe of its beautiful central act, which uses a stranded boy and his tiger to highlight wonder both vast and infinitesimal.

Bariatric surgery may be the answer. “Having bariatric surgery was like going through a break-up. Eating was my best friend. Fortunately, I met some new people – Jefferson’s Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery team. The unique way Jefferson’s medical and surgical weight management experts collaborate, they’ve helped me lose 107 pounds and counting. And it wasn’t just the minimally invasive surgery that did it. The team at Jefferson was so supportive, even to this day, I pretend Dr. Tichansky, Alise and Michelle are standing behind me when tough choices come my way. Because my old friend, food, will always have its charms. But my new life is even more tempting.” Read my entire story and register to attend the free seminar listed below at jeffersonhospital.org/myweightloss Jefferson’s Methodist Hospital March 19

inguine is a pasta that is commonly served with seafood sauces. However, there is no rule against altering this basic concept to one’s liking. Jessica Macerato’s dish of choice is Linguine and Shrimp. The resident of the 1900 block of Mole completes her recipe with a variety of seasonings. Once all of the flavors are blended together it’s time to say that word every hungry person likes to hear: Enjoy! SPR

INGREDIENTS

2 tablespoons of lemon juice Fresh Parsley, chopped, to taste Grated Parmesan, to taste

1 pound of linguine, cooked according to package directions 3 tablespoons of olive oil 3 tablespoons of butter 1-1/2 garlic gloves, finely chopped 1/4 cup of white wine 1 pound of shrimp, peeled Salt and pepper, to taste Red pepper flakes, to taste 1/2 cup of pasta water Zest from 1 lemon

DIRECTIONS: Sauté the garlic in the oil and butter for about two minutes. Add the wine and cook for two minutes more. Add the shrimp and cook for two minutes on each side. Combine the cooked pasta and the shrimp together followed by the water, lemon zest and lemon juice. Top with the seasonings.

cheese. I would have enjoyed a better sear on the outside, so an extra minute or two on the grill would have locked in the juices. The beef was not seasoned enough to my taste and the cheese melted almost to a liquid state, but it added flavor. I am very picky about the bun or roll that keeps my burger together. The ratio of beef to bread here was fine. The roll was soft and not too thick. We have all tasted dreadful, ghastly greasy french fries. Blind Pig served them up hot and salty. Edward thought there was a bit too much salt, but this was a matter of personal taste. Service was excellent. As the evening = Very Good

ne of the hallmarks of the neighborhood pub is the all-American burger. I am on a quest to find the perfect burger. The beef must be well-seasoned while the plump patty must be seared on the outside and medium-rare inside. I detest the thick, fancy rolls so many places are using. More bread, less beef is not my mantra. Several months ago, I ate an almost perfect burger at Devil’s Den. From timeto-time, I order a burger at a neighborhood pub. I was not sure Blind Pig, located in bustling Northern Liberties, served burgers until I glanced at the menu posted outside. This charming place was well-lit, had two televisions for sports viewing and a delightful bartender who told me his sister and brother-in-law own the restaurant. “It is a mom-and pop-operation,” the bartender said with a smile. I enjoy German pilsner-style beer and sipped a pint ($5) on the bartender’s suggestion. He gave me a sample and I liked it immediately. Edward arrived and ordered a Bluecoat martini ($11). We settled in, discussed the menu and watched college basketball. The moderately priced menu is small, yet well-crafted with appetizers, salads, sandwiches and a few entrées, as well as a some vegetarian options. Arugula salad ($8) was a deep bowl filled with baby arugula leaves and lardoons of crisp bacon. Although it was slightly overdressed, it imparted a nice flavor. The mixed green salad with diced beets

($8) was a take-off on all of the beet salads that have landed a place on restaurant menus within the past 15 years. Ordinary bagged mesclun lacked crunch although the spinach leaves and green and red oak lettuces were fresh. A bit of romaine would have added texture to the dish. Tiny cubes of cool beets mingled with the greens and not-too-sweet candied walnuts. The addition of Gorgonzola cheese melded with the dressing quite nicely. As with the former salad, this one was slightly overdressed. We never had to reach for the salt and pepper. Fried oysters find their way into sandwiches in a classic po’ boy, but they have been popular here since Colonial times. The fried oyster sandwich ($12) was built on buttery, toasted, good-quality white bread and included plump, nicely seasoned fried oysters; crisp bacon; mustard; a piece of romaine; and a slice of tomato. Oysters were the star here, but Edward and I felt the strong mustard and even the addition of bacon detracted from their naturally sweet, slightly salty flavor. A slathering of tartar sauce and a hint of freshly squeezed lemon juice would do the culinary trick. Still, the sandwich was satisfying. A mound of crisp, hot fries came with it. Since I am on a burger quest, I had to try the one served up at Blind Pig ($10). This was a bargain as many restaurants are charging up to $15 for a burger. You had a choice of cheese and bacon for an additional $2. I ordered it medium-rare with cheddar

The Industry’s Lamb Neck Ragout

pon seeing “lamb neck” on a menu, one may keep browsing, but chef Pat Szoke of The Industry, 1401 E. Moyamensing Ave., insists it tastes just like lamb. “They’ll actually shred off the bone,” he said of the pieces of the less expensive cut of meat he uses in his $12 small plate, Lamb Neck Ragout. Szoke, who previously served as sous chef at Center City restaurants including Vetri and the Farm and the Fisherman, wanted to create a menu of not-your-typical bar snacks — that aren’t deep-fried either. He drew some inspiration from a pork neck ragu dish at Chicago’s Purple Pig and a favorite snack. “One thing I like to eat is cold marinara,” the Downingtown native who now calls Center City home said. While The Industry, whose name references the restaurant business, provides its food peers with a 20 percent discount, it

Dad, When God called you home, you were 60 years young. Life without you never crossed our minds. We were devastated. Trying to find ways to mend our broken hearts is still an everyday task. They say that life isn’t fair, but that’s the last thing we want to hear. You were supposed to be with us a lot longer than this. If you were still here you would’ve been so proud of what your family has achieved in the last 10 years. But we never look at it that way, we feel like you’ve been with us every step of the way.

Come To Me! God saw you were getting tired, And a cure was not to be, So he put his arms around you And whispered, “Come to me.” With tearful eyes we watched you, And saw you pass away. Although we loved you dearly, We could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.

THE WEST PHILADELPHIAN and her peers credit Santarelli, who last season served as an assistant under Stephen Skedzielwski, for their endorphins boost, as the resident of the 2900 block of South Broad Street immediately stressed strengthening their resolve. “We knew with Letty we were going to go hard,” Sutton said of the leader, a 1986 Immaculata University alumnus whose résumé includes an eight-year stint coaching the Philadelphia Comets Amateur Athletic Union club, with numerous national appearances to their credit, and a successful

tenure as the overseer of St. Richard parish’s Catholic Youth Organization team, 1826 Pollock St. “She always encourages us to improve our games to an extent that I wouldn’t want any other coach.” “As soon as she came in, we knew she wanted wins,” Martin added of the former First-Team All-American. “She gave us clear goals and really prepared us for the Catholic League schedule with tough nonleague games.” Santarelli noted she needed to make small adjustments in assuming the top duty yet saw no need to baby her young team. “We were excited to start this season because of our potential,” she said. The Saints bonded by performing community service through Philly Girls Got Game, an organization that enlists Santarelli as its outreach director and will hold an April 27 clinic at Neumann-Goretti to further its mission to develop and improve girls’ hoops. When on the court, they have aimed to intensify their ties by toppling

tough opponents. “We wanted to come out with excitement from day one,” junior forward Stephanie Brown said. “I think we’ve done well to do that.” The Northeast Philly inhabitant played her part Saturday, leading the Saints with 14 points. Her school entered with fewer triumphs than the Public League’s Panthers, but a tougher regular-season journey helped the local institution to the very definition of a comfortable win. “The Public League teams can be tough, so I’m thrilled we played a solid game,” Santarelli, whose team dumped Engineering & Science, another public unit, 56-36 in its Dec. 12 season opener, said. That nonleague contest offered few lessons, but others inspired them to give constant attention to fundamentals. That diligence resulted in a 9-4 mark against parochial adversaries, the biggest notch coming Jan. 17 when they ventured to Cardinal O’Hara and gave the eventual

champion Lions their only league loss. “Our work really paid off in that game,” Santarelli, an O’Hara product, said of the 46-45 win. Though her charges could not veto the Patriots’ desires for postseason success last month, they more than made amends Saturday and joined the boys, who also brushed aside Imhotep 52-51 Friday at Saint Joseph’s University for their fifth straight District 12 plaque, as basketball royalty at Neumann-Goretti. Sutton, however, knows much more awaits. “The City title is great to have, but it’s done with,” she said. “Now comes the state tournament, where we’ll really look to show our chemistry.” The Saints face Lebanon County’s Annville Cleona 6 p.m. tomorrow at Archbishop Ryan High School, 11201 Academy Road.

fter an Archbishop Carroll player’s last-second three-point attempt found the net in a Valentine’s Day Catholic League playoff quarterfinal, junior forward Tanesha Sutton and her teammates from Ss. Neumann-Goretti High School, 1736 S. 10th St., left the gym as brokenhearted visitors. Eager to endow a foe with comparable woe, the Saints fixed their tickers Saturday, thrashing Imhotep Charter, 57-26, in the District 12 Class AA title game at St. Joe’s Prep. The result gives the East Passyunk Crossing-based ballers added determination ahead of tomorrow night’s state tournament opener. “That game hurt but gave us a sense of urgency,” Sutton, a Germantown resident, said Tuesday of the Carroll setback. “Against Imhotep, we wanted to continue to show we have great chemistry and discipline.” One of four all-league honorees under first-year coach Letty Santarelli, the guard/forward contributed 11 points in the blowout, which earned her unit its 13th victory and District 12’s top seed in the Class AA state bracket. So stalwart was its defense that the team yielded no first-half field goals in building a 23-10 intermission cushion and surrendered only six the rest of the way. “We’re much more athletic this year,” sophomore guard Sianni Martin, another All-Catholic selection, said in comparing this outfit to last year’s squad that dropped the City championship to Prep Charter, 1928 Point Breeze Ave. “Our focus and determination are sharper, and Imhotep witnessed that firsthand.”

SPORTS BRIEFS Ready for states

F

riday night’s PIAA District 12 Class AAA City title game between Catholic League champion Ss. Neumann-Goretti High School and Public League champion Imhotep Charter wasn’t just another game. This one, which was played in front of a crowd of about 3,000 at Saint Joseph’s University, marked the rst time since 1980 that the two champs had gone head-to-head for Philadelphia bragging rights. The contest lived up to its heavyweight billing, as the East Passyunk Crossingbased Saints escaping with a narrow 52-51 victory for their fifth straight City crown. Junior guard Ja’Quan Newton tallied 20 points and secured MVP honors. His two free throws in the game’s final seconds sealed the victory. But the Saints aren’t quite finished with defending their titles. Tomorrow at Archbishop Ryan High School, 11201 Academy Road, they’ll begin pursuit
