or most, 2012 has become a buzzword in popular culture, from blockbuster movies to online survival guides. But thanks to Mayor Michael A. Nutter’s “Greenworks Philadelphia” plan, locals now have their own key year to focus on — 2015. Last April, the mayor announced a new goal: To become the greenest city in America by ’15.

imilar to the now-almost-two-decade-old First Fridays from the Main Line to Manayunk, the East Passyunk Avenue Business Improvement District has developed its own burgeoning open store night to attract residents, shoppers and fun-seekers to the strip.

The fourth event from 6 to 9 p.m. March 13 will leave the doors open at more than two dozen places, all extending their hours for new and returning customers. But, if you happen to end up anywhere along the six-block stretch between Dickinson and McKean streets on the second Saturday of the upcoming months, there will be everything from complimentary food and beverage tastings to live perfor-

mances, art shows and psychic readings to be had. And each of the 25 to 30 shops involved offers its own unique take. “It’s a convenient, fun little stretch to hop along,” Renee Gilinger, the district’s executive director, said of the avenue. What started out as a handful of merchants organizing their own activities See SECOND SATURDAYS page 9

To the Editor: I am a new resident. We chose to live in South Philadelphia for its emerging vitality, community spirit and affordable homes. None of these assets will be enhanced by the proposed Foxwoods Casino at Reed Street and Columbus Boulevard — no matter who’s running it, or how financially successful it might be for its investors (“Wynn or lose?,” March 4). Steve Wynn, wunderkind of Las Vegas, should not presume to speak for what would be good for our community or what is best for the longterm goals of Philadelphia. What is needed is for our community — residents, civic associations and churches — to unite against the building of Foxwoods. If built, it will bring social problems, economic dislocation and more traffic congestion and will not benefit the development of a more livable and productive Philadelphia. Phil Funas South Philadelphia

Off target To the Editor: The thinking that proposes and advocates gun-free zones as a solution to crimes of multiple shootings is the kind of thinking that suggests licenses for bank robbers to rob banks. Gun-free zones, or the gun-free zone attitude, are, in part, responsible for the murders at Columbine and Fort Hood and for many other such incidents. Such ideas don’t save lives; they cause many deaths. The killer, expressing to the world, “I am somebody; recognize me and my obsession” amid mental and emotional anguish is seeking relief, honor and what he believes to be justice by destroying what is most precious to the victims and/or society. Destroy him and his remains like a disgusting, ingrate rodent in a manner that brings great shame to let others who might feel such temptations know the only honor they will receive is horrendous shame. The shameful deaths inflicted on our brave soldiers in Somalia by dragging their naked corpses through the streets or the diabolical display of the limbs and

torsos of American contractors hanging from a crane in Iraq are barbaric, but such methods will deter multiple shootings and save the lives of the innocent that gun-free zones will not. Evil will succumb to strong righteousness. Alfred Essex South Philadelphia

Time to spiffy up To the Editor: I just got back from the newer playground at Second and Jackson streets. It was truly amazing. There was a sense of community you don’t really get at Marconi Plaza or Barry Playground at 18th and Johnston streets. There were kids playing roller hockey and basketball, parents with strollers and people of all ages taking in the great scenery. The areas south of Snyder Avenue desperately need a place that could compete with this. Of course in a time when new taxes are being created to help a city in trouble, it’s hard to get this high on the list of priorities. It really isn’t fair to community members when their children are forced to play on playground equipment full of graffiti and when they have to watch their every step because there could be dog poop on the ground. Both Marconi and Barry playgrounds need to be remodeled big time. Once the remodeling process is a complete, a fence and surveillance equipment need to be installed so, during the overnight hours, the playgrounds aren’t destroyed. The Second Street area is seen more as a working-class, pro-union area, and I am sure that allowed this playground to be built quickly and at a cheaper cost, but I am just begging some of that generosity the city gave them be shared a bit more towards Broad Street. Michael Zuino South Philadelphia

Dump site To the Editor: I am outraged and disgusted over the amount of dog waste I’ve been seeing on the sidewalks lately. There

are between two and five piles of feces on every block in my neighborhood. You have to continuously look down as you walk just to avoid stepping in it. It is unsanitary, disgusting and rude. There is no excuse for it. If you forgot to bring a plastic bag, just look around; there are plenty of discarded plastic grocery bags all over our streets. Whenever I walk a dog, I bring a handful of plastic grocery bags with me. I bring more than I might need, just in case. Clean up after your dog! Or perhaps your nose should be rubbed in it. Frank D. South Philadelphia

$ CLEARING THINGS UP: When the Harlem Globetrotters start their patented moves, it’s like seeing double. This time it was no mirage when player Blenda Rodriguez, center, came to America’s Best Contacts and Eyeglasses, 2437 S. 24th St., last Thursday to help Police Athletic League members Ishay Sims, left, an eighth-grader, and seventh-graders Saeed Rollins, second from left, Safhir Green, third from left, and Emanuel Cooper with their eye exams. Along with the vision test and — of course — a showcase of basketball skills, the kids got free eyeglasses and tickets to see the team play. PAL Officer Joe Ellerby, right, couldn’t be happier.

ne thing that hasn’t changed about Fishbone is its shows are a full-contact sport. Vocalist Angelo Moore continues to stage dive in his 40s, just like he did two decades ago. Moore looks and acts the same as he did during his salad days. But maybe the audience is changing. When the ska-funk act played World Cafe Live, 3025 Walnut St., two weeks ago, Moore dove out into the maw of a mosh pit, which is typical for the energetic frontman. However, according to a fan, Moore hit her in the head and fractured her skull. She’s reportedly suing the band and the venue. Good luck. That’s like putting a suit together against the Phillies after getting hit with a foul ball. How can you not know what you were getting into when you were heading out to see Fishbone, lady?

olice responded to a call of shots fired and a man down in Point Breeze at 12:28 a.m. Sunday and, about 18 hours later, the victim’s friends and family were in the middle of a hail of bullets at his vigil at the same location. Police discovered Azzim Dukes, 17, of the 1600 block of Montrose Street, unresponsive on the sidewalk of the 2000 block of South 19th Street with a bullet to his head. Medics pronounced him dead at the scene five minutes later, Police Public Affairs Unit Officer Beth O’Brien said. According to reports, a gun was found at the location, but there were no motives or suspects at press time, O’Brien added. Later that Sunday, at 7 p.m., about 30 people ran in terror when shots rang out during a vigil for Dukes at 19th Street and Snyder Avenue — near where the teen was gunned down. Police later found a Buick with its rear windshield shattered and dark, broken glass on the ground. Ballistics evidence was recovered in the rear of the car and elsewhere at the scene, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. No one was injured at the vigil and police did not release a description of the suspects. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013 or the Homicide Division at 215-686-3034.

Duo wounded Two men were standing on the corner of 21st and Sigel streets when an unknown shooter fired at them Saturday evening for no discernible reason. At about 5:30 p.m., shots came from nearby McClellan Street, striking a 16year-old once in the back of the head and a 23-year-old once in the back of the right arm, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The former was transported by police to The Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in guarded, but stable condition, while the latter was taken to Methodist Hospital by private auto in stable condition. Ballistics were recovered at the scene, but neither victim could provide police with a description of the shooter or a motive, Tolliver said. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013.

For life

Vincent Pratt will serve a life sentence for the murder of a 15-year-old Point Breeze teen that occurred four years ago. The now 20-year-old from the 2200 block of Pierce Street was found guilty of gunning down Anthony Williams in front of the latter’s home on the 1500 block of South 19th Street in April 2006. Williams’ grandmother tried to pull him inside the home when the shots rang out, but Williams was struck in the back of the neck and died in her arms, Tasha Jamerson, director of communications for the District Attorney’s Office, said. Pratt, who was not arrested for the crime until November ’08, was convicted of first-degree murder, criminal conspiracy and firearms violations and was sentenced March 2, according to court documents. “This was a long and difficult case from the time of Pratt’s arrest in 2008 to his conviction on Tuesday,” District Attorney Seth Williams said in a statement. “Thanks to the efforts of Philadelphia Police homicide detectives and [Assistant District Attorney Brian Zarallo’s] persistence, Vincent Pratt will now be behind bars for the rest of his life for the senseless killing of an innocent 15-year-old.”

Driving to live

A man shot while driving traveled almost two miles Monday night before he called police. The 32-year-old was going south on 34th Street near Grays Ferry Avenue when a darkcolored older-model van pulled up on the left side of his car, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. Three or four shots were fired at his vehicle, with one striking the motorist in his left shoulder. The man continued heading south and, when he reached a residence near 24th and Ritner streets, he called the cops, who transported him to HUP, where he was treated and released. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013.

Charged with assault

A Philadelphia Parking Authority officer was allegedly assaulted as he wrote a ticket for a man believed to be double-parked on


Police Report Broad Street near Ritner Street March 4. The 28-year-old worker saw a black, unattended Acura in the northbound lane of the 2400 block of South Broad at 5:10 p.m., Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. As he started to write the ticket, Grant Gambone, 39, of the 1700 block of Ritner, allegedly approached him and said, “I’m picking up my f***ing daughter.” As the ticket-writer attempted to call a supervisor, Gambone stepped closer and allegedly said, “I will kill you and your supervisor” before he hopped in his car and sped up Broad, Tolliver said. But police believe Gambone did not vacate the area, though they say he did drive away, but may have parked nearby. While the employee was completing the ticket, though the driver had departed, Gambone allegedly ran across Broad towards the worker with fists clenched and pushed the man, who stumbled backwards, Tolliver said. Gambone then allegedly put his hand over the man’s face and pushed him back. The worker tried to walk away, but Gambone allegedly encircled him, Tolliver said. When police arrived at the scene, Gambone was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, terroristic threats and harassment. The PPA employee was not injured.

Sentenced for store owner’s murder

Dangerous gun play

The Citizens Bank Park janitor who grabbed a Phillies World Series ring left in a front office bathroom pled guilty to theft Monday and faces a maximum of seven years in prison for the crime, Tasha Jamerson, director of communications for the District Attorney’s Office, said. Anthony Mobley, 54, of North Philly, pled to Anthony Mobley theft by unlawful taking and receiving stolen property. He will be sentenced June 2, according to court documents. At about 1:20 p.m. Aug. 31, a 44-yearold Phillies publicist left the $10,500 piece of jewelry on the toilet-paper dispenser in a stall. He noticed it missing while driving home about 20 minutes later and returned to search the bathroom with no success. After reviewing surveillance footage, police interviewed Mobley, who admitted to taking the ring and hiding it in a utility closet at the stadium, police said. He led police to the ring and was arrested Sept. 2. Mobley had pled guilty to murder in 1974 and was convicted of aggravated assault in 1984, according to court documents.

Mugged for $30 A 17-year-old had a gun pointed at her head in an early Saturday morning mugging in Whitman. While walking south on Second Street from Daly, a man with a dark-colored revolver with a long barrel approached her and demanded her money at about 1:15 a.m., Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. She handed over her wallet that contained $30, and her phone, and the culprit fled north on Second toward Jackson Street with the items, Tolliver said. The offender was described as black, continued on page 11

Following an argument, a man is believed to have pointed a handgun at a woman in Grays Ferry, but didn’t harm her, before speeding off in a black Cadillac; he later allegedly admitted to police he was involved in the incident. Darrien Gresham, aka Mark Stokes, 45, of the 1900 block of Federal Street, allegedly pointed the weapon at the 23-year-old near 30th and Wharton streets 8:20 p.m. Sunday before driving off, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said.

Time to pause and reect

New to the neighborhoods’ utility poles are bright-yellow grids that seem to have appeared out of nowhere with no clear purpose. PECO solves the mystery. By Erica J. Minutella Review Intern

O

ver the past few weeks, a new feature on neighborhood telephone poles has been causing quite a stir. Observant residents could not help but notice the sudden and inexplicable appearance of yellow, metallic grids nailed onto the surface of the poles, hovering a little below eye-level when a person is seated in a car. “I didn’t really know what they were,” Madeline Caputo, of Broad Street and Packer Avenue, said. “I thought that they were replacing some of the telephone poles and that was the way you’d know it was replaced. “But every one I’ve ever seen has that yellow grid on it.” Although they may not be hovering in the sky or forming crop circles, the grids’ prevalence has led many to question their purpose. Theories range from traffic-markers to termite-treatments — but the reason for their exsistance is surprisingly simple. Michael Wood, Philadelphia Electric Co. (PECO) manager of communications, said these 12-by-8-inch aluminum mysteries are merely reflectors. “We started putting them on utility poles as a safety measure a few years back. They are installed at almost eye-level, but they have become part of our engineering standard for utility poles,” Wood said. PECO began installing the reflectors as early as 1996, as a result of an internal study concerning the visibility of telephone poles versus driver safety. About 11 years later, the decision was made to change to a more effective design. Standard variations include reflectors that completely encircle a utility pole that are usually rectangular and vary only in size and adhesion. It was not until 2008 the grid-style was released. The grids, which so far can be found predominantly in the 19145 and 19148 ZIP codes, act as retro-reflectors that bounce light back to its source. They are installed about 4 feet above the ground and positioned to face oncoming traffic. Their display on each successive pole is an alignment of the road for drivers dealing with poor visibility or high-traffic areas. “It’s more of a safety measure on busy roads, highly traveled roads, where there have been incidents of poles being struck by vehicles,” Wood said.

Mysterious additions to area telephone poles — including the 2500 block of South 12th Street — have puzzled residents, but the reflector grids were installed by PECO to aid driver visibility and safety. S ta f f P h o t o b y G r e g B e z a n i s

‘I didn’t really know what they were. I thought that they were replacing some of the telephone poles and that was the way you’d know it was replaced.’ —Resident Madeline Caputo, on reflectors that have popped up on utility poles LOCAL INSTALLATION BEGAN a few months ago and got attention fast — curious attention. The first poles to receive them were new or recently replaced, but the grids soon will be standard. The company responsible for manufacturing the reflectors is Almetek Industries Inc. in Hackettstown, N.J. According to its Web site, the grids are flexible and can be used for many different objects and surfaces, from trees to guardrails. “There is a wide variety of pole reflectors and these reflector grids were chosen based upon what would be most visible in weather conditions and also when viewed at different angles, and what fits the pole standard,”

Wood said of why they were selected. For some, PECO’s move represents a much-desired step towards increased road safety. “I work for an orthopedic surgeon, and I deal with people who do have motor vehicle accidents,” Caputo said of why she thinks the grids are critical to driver wellbeing. “The one-person accident into a pole or a tree is bad. They usually have fractured femurs, fractured legs, because of the impact. The dashboard comes forward and crushes your legs.” According to a report by the Transportation Research Board, collisions with utility poles account for more than 5 percent

of national traffic fatalities. Still, not everyone feels the reflectors are necessary. “If you’re a safe driver, you’re going to be a safe driver. You always have to look out for the other guy,” Peter DiForte, of the 2900 block of South Sydenham Street, said. “They seem a little redundant,” Robert O’Brien, from the 2600 block of Rosewood Street, added. “I mean, we have street lights.” Yellow remains the most effective color for safety markers and clothing due to its high perceptibility among the visible spectrum, as well as its greater chance of discernability for the color blind. For PECO, they remain the best choice for promoting citywide driver safety, but some believe the bright coloring may detract from the aesthetic value of their neighborhoods. “They are a bit of an eyesore,” Hank Zientak, landscape supervisor for the Philadelphia Phillies, said.

SECOND SATURDAYS continued from page 1 soon became avenue-wide as the months progressed. “The first, more formal event was held in December with about 30 stores becoming involved,” Gilinger said. Some may start later or close earlier this weekend, Gilinger said, but one thing remains — almost all will offer snacks and beverages and many will offer scenes from the art world. Luring outsiders and locals up and down the avenue to enjoy not only the restaurants and bars, but every aspect in between, was one of the main reasons behind the event. SECOND SATURDAYS WERE the brainchild of Sweet Jane Vintage, 1742 E. Passyunk, owners Jen Zimmerman and Carly Franks along with B2 Café’s show organizer. Zimmerman started First Fridays when she established her shop a little more than two years ago, but it was this past summer Franks set out to gauge interest in a community-wide endeavor. “We wanted to not just do another thing on the same night, but on a different night,” Zimmerman said of the move to Saturdays.

And so far, it’s been a hit. Each month, Sweet Jane transforms into a gallery that features different mediums. After Baltimore native Pam Haner showcases her art Saturday, her paintings and drawings will adorn the walls of the clothing and record store for the next month. “It’s our way to give back and support local merchandise and artists,” Zimmerman said of their participation in the event. Since Sweet Jane held similar showcases over the past two years, they’ve cultivated a loyal following — one they hope will spill over to adjacent shops. “We want to draw attention to this neighborhood,” she added. With the area’s happening art scene, many have integrated the concept into their events, as well. Chett Farbstein’s “anonymous and random” travel shots will cover the walls of Black N Brew, 1523 E. Passyunk, come Saturday. Live performances will pump up the atmosphere and draw in crowds with Black N Brew being one of the main venues. Local singer/songwriter Alia Ady, who goes on tour next month, will strum her guitar starting at 5:30 p.m. A portion of her album sales during the showcase and

RECYCLING continued from page 1 mobilization from a variety of fronts, including fostering green jobs, utilizing alternative energy sources and creating more green space with public access. One of the most important steps to reaching this target must come from the local level with neighborhoods working together to plant trees, spread environmental education, or even something as simple as recycling. The new Philadelphia Recycling Rewards program — announced in December — provides residents with an added incentive in the form of discounts, gift cards or charitable contributions at hundreds of merchants. Redeemable rewards could include anything from discounts on a Dunkin’ Donuts purchase at to a free flight, depending on how long registered members build up points. Through the Streets Department’s partnership with RecycleBank — a six-yearold company headquartered in New York and focused on promoting a green economy — residents who participate will build up points each time they recycle. The Lower Moyamensing Civic Association used its March 3 general meeting at the Fumo Family Branch Library, 2437 South Broad St., to explain the new program to the about 30 LoMo residents in attendance. Carla Castillo, a RecycleBank representative, also spoke at the two-hour informational session. “We have been contracted by the City of Philadelphia to bring the Philadelphia Recycling Rewards program to all the residents in [the city] — 550,000 households,” she said while speaking to the crowd. Sara Merriman, of 11th and Jackson streets, described the new concept as “brilliant.” “I think that it’s the smartest thing in the world, especially if its improving recycling rates in neighborhoods that have low recycling rates,” Merriman said. “I recycle like crazy myself right now. So, I feel like wanting to help the environment should be enough incentive. For folks where it’s not, I think it may be that extra push that many folks need.” As early as 1987, Philadelphia became the first city to enact mandatory curbside recycling. With pressure to reach the new goal of “Greenworks” under way, more Streets and Walkways Education and Enforcement Program officers have been hired to patrol the streets and enforce the recycling law. Those bypassing it can receive a $25 fine. At the moment, the city’s recycling rate is 12 to 15 percent, which is low when compared to cities like Los Ange-

Residents of the 1000 block of Cantrell Street soon could earn discounts and gift cards for participating in the new Philadelphia Recycling Rewards program that is slated to launch locally in May. S ta f f P h o t o b y G r e g B e z a n i s

les’ 40 percent. There have been previous successes in Philadelphia, like West Oak Lane, where recycling rates rose from 7 percent to 93 percent after switching to the RecycleBank program. WITH PHILADELPHIA BEING the nation’s largest city to implement a program of this magnitude, locals can look forward to a scheduled May launch. It began on a roll-out basis in North Philadelphia last month. Until the local start date, recycling routines will continue just as before. A RecycleBank representative will visit

each of the recycling yards in the city’s six sanitation areas, including one in South Philly, to train the staff. The top of collection trucks will be equipped with sensors — about the size of an 8-by-12-inch sheet of paper — that will sweep the streets for registered stickers. A computer, in the front seat of the truck will pick up and record these signals. Interested residents must register for the program to receive a sticker containing the RFID chip. It must be placed on one of the household’s recycling bins to enable the collection truck to scan it and register resident participation each week. “Now this is a communitybased weight line,” Castillo

told Wednesday’s crowd. “Your [neighborhood’s] input as a whole — what’s going in that truck — will go down at the end of the day to the center and it will get weighed … That will get multiplied by two points per pound, and then those hundreds of thousands of points will get distributed among all the participants.” She noted residents who decline to join are just giving up points to their neighbors. For each ton sent to the recycling center, Castillo said he City saves $3, with the potential to add up to $1.5 million for the city coffers. Since the discounts stimulate residents to shop at local vendors, it will boost Philadelphia’s economy, as well. Furthermore, those businesses who sign up to participate will receive free marketing on the RecycleBank Web site, as well as in mailers. The only cost will be whatever discounts these venues decide to offer in conjunction with the program. Marc Mucci, of 11th and Porter streets, said at the meeting he thinks the incentives will entice more people to participate. “I don’t know why people wouldn’t, especially that there’s fines for people that don’t recycle, I think it’s even more incentive,” he said. “It’s the idea that the rewards are there.” SPR For more information on Recycling Rewards Program, call 888-769-7960 or visit www.phillyrecyclingpays.com.

A local director brought what many consider Shakespeare’s most famous work to the stage by stripping it down and reshaping it for contemporary audiences. By Jess Fuerst Review Contributor

t’s been said every story has been told. Matt Pfeiffer does not agree. The Montrose-and-Ninth-streets resident took it as a challenge to retell what may be the most popular story of all time. “The story first started to emerge [centuries ago] and it’s made its way to us here now. It means generations and generations of human beings have decided that this story is worth telling,” “Romeo and Juliet” director Pfeiffer said. “It holds hate to its consequences.” Though shying from the initial proposal issued him by the Arden Theater’s producing artistic director Terry Nolen because he was never captivated by productions of the star-crossed lovers, Pfeiffer reread the timeless script and a new opportunity presented itself. “I had never seen it work in a compelling way. When I went back and read it — and I hadn’t read it in maybe 10 years — I rediscovered how great it was,” Pfeiffer said. “There were a lot of things I’d never heard in the performances I’d seen. So I went back and said I’d be interested in doing it. “I wanted to strip it down and focus on the actors and the story.” His modern interpretation of the play speculated to have been written in the late 1500s is at the Arden Theatre, 40 N. Second St., through April 11. Approaching the work the way he believes Shakespeare’s company would have, Pfeiffer is using a contemporary setting and story-telling technique to amplify the relevance of its meaning. “[Shakespeare’s Company] would have done it on their stage and would have done it with their costumes,” Pfeiffer said. “It’s [Shakespeare’s] Verona; he made up this Verona. Everything he says about this culture and these people I could determine based on what I think Shakespeare invented.” Borrowing the great playwright’s methodology, Pfeiffer believes he’s

LIFESTYLES continued from page 15 concocted a 21st Century version of what Shakespeare would have staged. To do so, Pfeiffer used what was available to the production to organically shape the direction, look and feel â&#x20AC;&#x201D; akin to how Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Company would have allowed Southwark, Londonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Globe Theatre and popular fashion to become an integral part of its staging. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted the concept and the clothing and setting to dictate everything. I wanted the story to dictate our choices,â&#x20AC;? Pfeiffer said. Further modernizing the script, Pfeiffer looked to contemporary storytelling methods to appeal to young audiences. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I used intercutting, borrowing from the filmic style,â&#x20AC;? Pfeiffer said of scenes that unfold side-by-side on a split stage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take two of Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scenes that happen sequentially and have them intercut with each other. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Younger audiences, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their aesthetic. I was keeping in line with that kind of pace.â&#x20AC;? With the performance schedule filled with student matinees sold to capacity, Pfeiffer believes his key demographic is getting the picture â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and perhaps learning a whole new way to interpret a hallowed text. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the Second Act you can hear a pin drop in the theater. They get really invest-

ed by that point,â&#x20AC;? Pfeiffer, who chose hand knives and collapsible police batons as the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weapons, said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It feels like people are really staying with it.â&#x20AC;? GROWING UP IN the Northeast, Pfeiffer moved into his Italian Market home fiveand-a-half years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We love our neighborhood. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great neighborhood right off the Italian Market,â&#x20AC;? Pfeiffer, who shares his home with wife Kim, said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the great things for me is that I can walk anywhere I want to be.â&#x20AC;? One of those places is his resident company, Theater Exile, headquartered for just over a year at 1340 S. 13th St. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do a lot of theater that people consider edgy, but I deem it immediate, very theatrical and asks a lot of questions,â&#x20AC;? the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s associate artistic director said. Getting his bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in theater from DeSales University in 1999, Pfeiffer attributes much of his style to an eye-opening summer following his freshman year. The break in schooling gave the blossoming actor and director time to travel to Vermont and study with the Atlantic Theater Company, a New York-based group founded by playwright David Mamet and actor William H. Macy that focuses on the story and playwrightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intentions for producing creative theater.

ket cookout. Our hope certainly is to perform more in South Philly,â&#x20AC;? Pfeiffer, who had lived on Carpenter Street and Sixth and Catharine streets, said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our rehearsal space can double as a performance space. Our mission going forward is to use our space as a performance venue.â&#x20AC;? Whether in the comfort of his own home or around the area, Pfeiffer always has felt free to perform his own way in the City of Brotherly Love. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Philadelphia, we really put the arts first and produce challenging material,â&#x20AC;? Pfeiffer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can make a living here and you can offer theater to all audiences. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great working on Shakespeare because, you know, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a constant reminder: In his day, theater was produced for the common people.â&#x20AC;? Feeling heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accomplished just that, the director hopes people will come to the production and give themselves the chance to shift their perspective. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grudges can cost people their lives. I hope people talk about that and think about that and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let the question die out,â&#x20AC;? Pfeiffer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are constantly asking, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What is enough? What is enough sacrifice?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? SPR

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It definitely fostered a very deep love for the work of David Mamet,â&#x20AC;? Pfeiffer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That kind of theater was the kind of theater I was most excited by in college.â&#x20AC;? His time with Atlantic was a departure, as Pfeiffer spent 13 seasons interning at the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival. His long-standing connection with the official Shakespeare festival of Pennsylvania is what lead Nolen to approach him about â&#x20AC;&#x153;Romeo and Juliet.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like we are doing the production that I wanted to do. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the production thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very immediate, very useful and fun to me in the first act,â&#x20AC;? Pfeiffer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And the second, well â&#x20AC;Ś I feel like we are earning the tragedy of the play.â&#x20AC;? Working with a like-minded team has allowed the director the artistic freedom to create a thought-provoking version of the classic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[The production team is] only interested in creating theater that excites a new generation of theater-goers. The cast is all under 40 and at a burgeoning point in their careers,â&#x20AC;? the 32-year-old said. Though playing two miles north of South Philly, Pfeiffer encourages locals to make the trip to the Arden â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be long until some of his provocative theater is just around the corner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In [Theater Exileâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s] space we had a public reading and we did a big flea mar-

Though it was shutout at the Academy Awards, director Jason Reitman’s timely, timeless, edgy, funny and beautifully mature dramedy “Up in the Air” boasts last year’s finest script and three perfect performances from Oscar nominees George Clooney, Vera Farmiga and Anna Kendrick. Starring Clooney as a connection-averse frequent flier who fires people for a living, the film has unmatched relevance, yet Reitman never pounds it into your brain. As he slowly uncovers the humanity of Clooney’s character, the 32-year-old filmmaker calmly and poignantly taps into the humanity in all of us. The best movie of 2009. SPR

S O U T h P H I L LY R E V I E W I m a r c h 1 1 , 2 0 1 0

ost of the buzz surrounding Sundance standout “The Runaways,” a behind-the-music movie about the formative years of the first all-girl rock band to make it big, has been focused on “It Girl” Kristen Stewart, who dyed her hair black, donned a lot of leather and scuffed up her trademark aloofness to portray a young Joan Jett. The Stewart-as-star publicity is a bait and switch: The film’s white-hot nucleus is in fact Stewart’s less bankable but more dynamic “New Moon” co-star Dakota Fanning, who hits a cinematic growth spurt as Runaways lead singer Cherie Currie and owns this 1970sset jam session from top to bell-bottom. It’s a sweet-and-salty, sinful treat to watch Fanning tear into her daredevil role, easily the most captivating and range-establishing of the 16-year-old’s still-tender career. As Currie, a classic (or is it cliché?) rise-and-fall case whose autobiography, “Neon Angel,” inspired the movie, Fanning vamps it up and plays strung out with the instincts of a fearless pro, while still retaining the doughy-cheeked naiveté of a girl growing up too fast (kudos to the filmmakers for actually casting teens to play the California-based bandmates). Writer/director Floria Sigismondi, who got her start helming videos for David Bowie and Marilyn Manson, frequently makes the mistake of boxing her film into the paint-by-numbers framework of factbased musician movies (rapid-fire rise to fame, magazine-cover montages, intergroup strife, oh my!), but when she does color outside the lines, she evokes a mood and atmosphere at once grimy and sexy, and presents a fiercely female artistic view-

point (the first shot is a drop of menstrual blood hitting the pavement). She also gets a fire-breathing supporting performance out of Michael Shannon, who plays the band’s rabid, domineering manager, Kim Fowley. Final ruling? Predominantly well-acted and -visualized, “The Runaways” is much more cherry than bomb, but it’s not without pits.

t is said when times are rough, we try to escape from reality. During The Great Depression, people flocked to the movies to see fluff with over-the-top dance routines choreographed by Busby Berkeley. Rough times are upon us again. Never has it been easier to escape reality, but nowadays we escape it so often we rarely confront it anymore. Our much-ballyhooed American creativity is directed mainly toward developing gadgets to distract us. In the ’60s, Dr. Timothy Leary urged his followers to take LSD so they could turn on and tune out. Today, all we need is an iPod. Hardly a moment goes by when we are not being entertained. If we are not tweeting, we are on Facebook, where we convince ourselves every humdrum moment is of intense interest to everyone else. There is hardly ever a time for quiet contemplation. If there is one thing we can’t stand, it is to be alone with our thoughts. Whether walking along the street or riding in our cars, we grab our cell phones and indulge in idle chatter to fill the silence. We are addicted to distraction. Television has been around as our main distraction for a long time. Back in the ’50s, the then-chairman of the Federal Communications Commission called TV “a vast wasteland.” He should see it now. He would be singing along with Bruce Springsteen about there being 500 channels and nothing on. At least back in the day, there were live television dramas like “Playhouse 90” and “Studio One.” Live TV is almost totally extinct. The “CSI” and “Law & Order” franchises are what pass today for television drama. At one time, the advent of pay TV (now called cable) held out the hope it would be free from commercials. It was assumed if you paid for television service, there would be no need for commercial revenue. PRISM, which later morphed into Comcast Cable and AMC (the American Movie Channel) started out free from commercial interruption. No more. Other than Turner Classic Movies, unless you pay an additional fee for so-called premium channels, you can expect as many commercials on cable as on “free” TV. Aside from commercials, much of the content on TV is a goulash of escapist crime shows, situation comedies, sports, and socalled “reality” TV. Sometimes we are even distracted from the main distraction. The big topic the day after the Super Bowl is not so much the game, but the commercials.

As far as reality TV, just whose reality is it — likely not yours or mine. Reality TV is just more escapism cloaked in the trappings of faux reality. It’s main advantage is it’s cheaper for the networks to produce. The problem is best illustrated by the popular “Jersey Shore.” The concept was to follow ordinary, working class 20-somethings on summer vacation at the Shore. With the popularity came celebrity. Soon Snooki and her friends began making guest appearances on other shows. The new contract calls for each of the kids to make $10,000 an episode. If the reality of the show was ever genuine, the success of the formerly unknown Snooki and her friends ensures “Jersey Shore” will become just another show about the effects of instant celebrity, not the reality of young adults. Even television news has fallen victim to the need to entertain. No one really tunes in to the local news anymore for hard news. The local news is to hard news what Jackie Collins is to literature. Take the ever-expanding weather forecast. It may be hard to believe, but it was once a 30-second throw-in at the end of a newscast. Weather now has become the prime ingredient. Despite the problem predicting the weather more than three days out, the forecast has expanded until the four main weather persons on local TV, around the beginning of December, now are expected to forecast for the entire winter, complete with bogus snowfall estimates. Each local forecast has an abundance of colorful graphs and charts with the information culled from the same computer models and packaged with catchy names such as “Earthwatch.” This is a country involved in two wars, but you would hardly know it by the local news. News was once the prestigious jewel. Network execs did not expect the news department to turn a profit, that was the job of the entertainment division. News has become part of the entertainment today, vying against the 24-hour cable networks and each other for the advertising dollar. The result is the gutting of once-great news operations. Many of the so-called news shows such as “Dateline” and “20/20” are indistinguishable from the distractions offered by the rest of network programming, routinely dealing with crime and entertainment as much as hard news. Cable news is not immune from the need to attract dollars. The head of Fox News, Roger Ailes, in response to a charge the network routinely distorts the news, claimed his only interest is in ratings. Ratings attract dollars. To get dollars, you must entertain. To entertain, you often distract more than inform. Our epitaph will one day simply read, “America was a great country, but it got distracted.” SPR

otatoes are one of those foods that goes well with any meal, any time of the day. Hash browns often are paired with popular morning items such as eggs, pancakes or french toast. When combined with veggies, cheese and a sprinkling of cornflakes, the crunch that comes is a welcome side to the eveningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main course. Marge Lord, of the 2100 block of South Hancock Street, serves her Cheesy Potatoes to complement beef or chicken and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a perfect twist on a table favorite when making that St. Paddyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day feast. SPR

Margeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cheesy Potatoes INGREDIENTS:

DIRECTIONS:

1 10-3/4-ounce can of reducedfat, reduced-sodium condensed cream of chicken soup 1 cup of reduced-fat sharp cheddar, shredded 1/2 cup each of fat-free milk and light sour cream 1/3 cup of onion, ďŹ nely chopped, or 2 tablespoons of dried minced onion 1/2 green pepper, shredded 1/2 teaspoon of ground black pepper 1 32-ounce package of frozen shredded or diced hash brown potatoes, thawed 1/2 cup of crushed cornďŹ&#x201A;akes

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 2-quart rectangular baking dish and set aside. In a bowl, combine the soup, cheese, milk, sour cream, onion and green and black pepper. Stir in the potatoes. Spread evenly in the baking dish. Cover and bake for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle the cornďŹ&#x201A;akes over the mixture. Bake uncovered for about 25 minutes, or until heated through and bubbly. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

Chops By Phyllis Stein-Novack R e s ta u r a n t R e v i e w e r

C

enter City’s newest steakhouse is Chops, which joined an ever-growing list of restaurants where carnivores have their day. It opened last month on the site of the breathtakingly beautiful Oceanaire, an upscale fishhouse that sank about a year ago. The problem with reviewing a steakhouse is it’s not much fun. They all serve the same foods. I decided to lunch at Chops because the menu would not pigeonhole me into writing about Cowboy steaks or any other standard dishes, like wedge salad with blue cheese or creamed spinach. The bar area and dining room have hardwood floors and roomy banquettes. Tables are set with crisp white linen. My server introduced herself (Giselle) and advised me of the specials. She pointed out the 10-ounce Kobe burger was $6 instead of the menu-listed $15. (Chops is running a promotion.) She spoke the what- kind-of-water-would-you-like spiel, answered my questions and gave me a few minutes to decide. I ordered iced tea and a server always was walking around the room, filling my glass. Stale, cold bread arrived and so did butter that was so chilled it fell off the bread in one piece when I tried to spread it. I began with clams casino ($12), a favorite at home. This classic dish must be made with either top-necks or cherrystones. What I received was eight littlenecks in their shells, floating in a pool of hot grease. The meat was the size of Coffee/Café/Sweets Caffe Chicco: 2532 S. Broad St., 215-334-3100, $

a newborn’s fingernail and charred into a dark, chewy mess. The clams were so tough, I struggled to free the meat from its shell. When I finally succeeded, spurts of grease landed on my Sunday New York Times magazine. The offending dish was whisked away and removed from my check. Edward has eaten at the Chops in Bala Cynwyd and told me to order the chopped salad ($8). It is made with finely chopped iceberg and romaine lettuces, red peppers, tomatoes, onions and anchovies tossed in a red wine vinaigrette. The absolutely tasteless tomatoes were so pale and anemic, they cried out for a transfusion. Anchovies provided a bit of saltiness, but they did nothing to add flavor to ingredients overdressed with much-too-much red wine vinegar. I have eaten Kobe beef on a few occasions and have forgotten how juicy and tender it can be. I ordered my burger medium-rare and it arrived medium-rare. Although the beef should have been charred on the outside, it was, nonetheless, tasty and nicely seasoned. It was topped with sautéed onions that added a bit of sweetness. A tad of yellow cheddar mingled with the onions. The cheese was almost liquid and had the texture of processed cheese food. The burger was on a soft roll, which I like. A small square leaf of iceberg lettuce and two slices of the anemic tomato, complete with part of the light inner-core, came with the dish. The french fries were neither steakhouse nor shoestring, but they Italian

Giselle carried the dessert tray to my table, which contained slabs of sweets plucked right from the ’80s. “All desserts are made here except for the cheesecake, which is from the Aramingo Diner,” she said. Nothing tempted my sweet tooth. I nixed the cheesecake, chocolate mousse cake, crème brulee and oatmeal-gray-looking pear crisp and opted for a brownie sundae ($12). You read that right. Twelve dollars for a brownie, two scoops of Ciao Bello ice cream (one chocolate, one vanilla), whipped cream and chocolate syrup with a cherry on top. I found the ice cream lacking richness. Hometown Bassetts would have hit the mark. Giselle took fine care of me. We laughed

Directions: Pick over the mussels and clams for any broken shells. Place the shellfish in a colander and rinse thoroughly. Heat the oil over medium-high. Add the leeks and onion and sauté for about five minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for three minutes. Season with the salt and pepper. Add the beer. Bring to a boil, lower to a simmer, cover and cook for about four minutes, shaking the pot once or twice. If the shells have not opened, cook another minute or so. Discard any mussels or clams that do not open. Serves four. Note from Phyllis: Serve the mussels with slices of toasted bread.

4 6-ounce wild salmon fillets, patted dry with paper towels Olive oil, for brushing on the salmon plus 4 tablespoons Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste 2 pounds of baby spinach leaves 3 fat cloves of garlic, sliced Lemon wedges, for garnish

Directions: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Brush the salmon with the oil. Season with the salt and pepper and sear the salmon for about five minutes on each side. Place in a baking dish and bake for about 10 minutes, depending upon the thickness of the fish. While the salmon is baking, wash the spinach leaves. Heat the 4 tablespoons of oil over medium-high. Add the garlic and sauté for about three minutes. Add the spinach and cook for about five minutes. The spinach will shrink down. Divide the spinach evenly among four plates. Place a fillet of salmon on the spinach. Serves four.

ext week marks St. Patrick’s Day and it’s just in time, as Philly Beer Weekend kicks off tomorrow. Why do we associate the Irish with beer? Don’t know, but I do so love a pint of Guinness. The Emerald Isle is steeped in culture. The music has a lilting quality and the harp is held in such high esteem, it is the only household possession that cannot be confiscated for debt. “Riverdance” introduced America to the rhythmic art of step dancing. Let’s not forget the brilliant poets, playwrights and writers. George Bernard Shaw, Sean O’Casey, William Synge and James Joyce all hail from Ireland. Although he was born in Brooklyn to Irish parents, Frank McCourt, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of “Angela’s Ashes,” spent time in poverty in Ireland. But this column is about food. Please, not jokes that Ireland has no cuisine except for dreary lamb stew, potatoes, corned beef and cabbage. This is 100-percent incorrect. My friends Eamon and Malachy McVeigh were born in County Tyrone. I easily understand the Dublin accent, but

2 pounds of mussels, preferably from Maine or Prince Edward Island 24 cockles or littleneck clams Vegetable oil, to coat the bottom of a 4-quart pot 2 leeks, with some tender green, split, thoroughly washed and sliced 1 onion, diced 3 fat cloves of garlic, sliced Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste 1 can or bottle of beer of your choice

these northern lads speak almost one of their own. They grew up on a farm where vegetables were grown and lambs roamed and dined on grass. Although the brothers are American citizens, they still have family back on the farm. Because Ireland is an island, fish is a big part of the Irish diet. You think mussels are enjoyed only by Italians, Southern French and Belgians? Think again. The Irish adore mussels and cockles, which are clams. Salmon is their fish of choice. Here’s a salute to St. Patrick’s Day.


Horoscopes

By Mystic Terry Psychic Reader

PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20): Temptations to S bring up knowledge and experience to get in the way. Your closest companion may feel bullied and disrespected. Listening and being supportive to the ideas of your partner gets you farther ahead. Lucky number: 060. ARIES (March 21 to April 20): The words of a successful person speak to a job situation. Looking at options and where abilities may lead should be the outcome of this message. Avoid excuses. Lucky number: 654. TAURUS (April 21 to May 20): Your closest companion may have a vision of what your home should look like. This may or may not be aligned with the environment you want to live in, but hold off decorating at home until you have specifics. Lucky number: 119. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20): Attention to detail and organizational skills becomes useful. Putting things together benefits everyone. Get the cooperation of others by accepting suggestions. Lucky number: 726. CANCER (June 21 to July 22): Hide the wallet and credit cards. You may be tempted to go to the casino or to make a risky investment. Imagining yourself lucky doesn’t make it so. Play Monopoly instead. Lucky number: 409. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22): Express thoughts in a playful way to neighbors. Future interactions stray from business as usual and become meaningful once a little fun is established. Lucky number: 843. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22): Imagining a dream trip is pleasurable, but not completing work assignments could have a negative impact on job security. Try to get done whatever is pressing and peruse brochures afterwards. Lucky number: 938. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22): Taking a stand regarding joint interests is not favored today. Be diplomatic with a business partner or a person finances are entwined. Push your position later. Lucky number: 501. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21): Be wary of romantic overtures from someone in your professional life. What this person says sounds too good to be true, and probably is. A suitor may already be in a relationship. An involvement could hamper career goals. Lucky number: 013. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21): Consider going along with friends. Asserting an agenda is met with resistance. Embrace a new experience. Lucky number: 631. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19): A magnetic leader seems to offer the answers to the mysteries of life and death and could recruit you to join a group. Wait until your mind is up to speed. Lucky number: 310. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18): Speak up about a concern impacting your career. Express yourself without punishment. This may be the first step in taking work in a new and better direction. Lucky number: 249. SPR To inquire about a personal reading, call Mystic Terry at 215-467-5162.

Getting over the hump

For two basketball teams, the road to Penn State University’s Bryce Jordan Center begins with opening-round action at the PIAA state tournament. By Bill Gelman Review Managing Editor

W

hile many of the area high school girls’ basketball teams have turned in their uniforms, the Prep Charter Lady Huskies were hard at work this week making final preparations for Saturday’s PIAA Class AAA opening-round contest against Malvernbased Villa Maria Academy. Making the field is a yearly routine for the squad at 1928 Point Breeze Ave. Unfortunately, so is getting eliminated in the first round. The Lady Huskies are hoping their luck changes 3:30 p.m. Saturday when the opposition rolls into the South Philadelphia High gymnasium, 2101 S. Broad St. The two schools met in a December non-league match with Villa Maria winning, 52-25. After getting crushed by Archbishop Carroll, 59-35 in last week’s District 12 Class AAA City title game, one might doubt the Lady Huskies chances of advancing. But coach Paul Reiser said the big thing for his 20-5 squad is putting the lopsided defeat behind them. “It wasn’t hard to turn the page because they’re the defending state champions,” the coach said of Carroll. He noted the upside is Prep Charter faced

a team that plays the same slow-down tempo as Villa Maria. The Lady Huskies, on the other hand, play at more of an uptempo pace. “It’s a matter of who dictates the tempo,” the coach said of Saturday’s match. “This time I think we are in a better position to play well.” A victory would certainly be a huge confidence boost for Prep Charter, especially for a squad that opened the season down three starters as a result of transfer and injuries. “The girls have never stopped working hard,” Reiser said. “I think we’ve overachieved considering we lost three starters.” The girls have put together another solid run that included a second-straight trip to the March 2Public League championship. Like last year, they fell to Central, 45-38. The contest was tied 34-34 with 1:32 remaining. Individually, seniors Lashay Banks and Robyn Harcum, juniors Tiffany Johnson and Nyderra Lee, along with sophomore Erica Smith-Sowell each received AllPublic recognition. THE NEUMANN-GORETTI BOYS’ basketball team is ready to embark on its own mission of earning the final piece of the championship trifecta — the Avenue (enter on Snyder).
