he red, white and blue archway of balloons welcomed customers and attendees into the newly renovated Pennsport Walmart Supercenter on the morning of the site’s grand reopening last week. A crowd of new and veteran associates, managers and administrators from across the region, along with area community or-

ganization representatives, gathered around the small stage and podium set up in the center aisle of the 1675 S. Columbus Boulevard location while the Mummers provided the background music at 7:30 a.m. March 14. Store manager and event emcee, Frank Pellicori, jump-started the festivities with excitement as the new look was officially unveiled. The pomp and circumstance continued when three students from the High School

for Creative and Performing Arts, 901 S. Broad St., sang the national anthem and Rev. Joy Segal from Gloria Dei (Old Swedes’) Episcopal Church, 916 S. Swanson St., recited an invocation and dedication. The 30,000-square-foot expansion, which began in February 2011, includes the addition of more grocery items. Although the footprint of the store remains the same, See WALMART page 14

Monopoly prevention To the Editor: As we watch gasoline prices getting higher and higher at the pumps, we must all realize that we are dealing with a monopoly-holding industry. It’s the only one of its kind, and it’s dangerous. It holds the nation’s economy in its hands. No matter who we are or what we do for a living, we are all held hostage by its effect on us. It’s a mixture of greed, power and control used by big-money Americans flexing their muscle on American people. Yet, as we bleed at the pumps, we receive no interference from Washington on our behalf. Maybe the reason for that is someone in Washington has shared investments or interests in the oil companies, which means as we suffer at the pumps, we also are a gold mine of profit for them. Oil companies have never had anything to fear from our gutless wonders in Washington. There’s a law on the books indicating no one could use or hold a monopoly over the people. Well, Washington forgot to enforce that law. Maybe out of fear is why. Ever notice that Washington always talks the talk to the American people. Now we want to give Washington a chance to walk the walk for us. Obama wants us to use billions of our tax dollars again to create jobs for the jobless. We suggest he buys the Sunoco Refinery [3144 W. Passyunk Ave.]. Rebuild it to be a new modern facility that would serve the American people. Sunoco jobs are still in the area. The impact of the economy could be raised. It would also present itself to be competition against price gauging — now monopolized by a big-money Americans. It could set the price at the pumps to be more reasonable to deal with. Some people may say that our government can’t be in direct compliance with private enterprises. Well what is FedEx and UPS to our U.S. Postal Service. Everyday we watch our Postal Service find ways to stay in business as a people’s service. We ask all of our people, who have some kind of influence in Washington politics, to consider this suggestion. Otherwise, we may be forced to pay the price monopoly has ready for us in the near future. Washington talk that talk and walk that walk for us this time. Show us you really have guts. Patrick Dio Sr. South Philadelphia

Retaining honor To the Editor: “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor,� so signed our forefathers at Sixth and Chestnut streets, concluding the Declaration of Independence in 1776. And some did lose their lives and fortunes but not their sacred honor. Today, sits in our U.S. Senate a majority that has no honor at all, let alone sacred honor. They plunder the nation with wicked laws. They lie to the people and connive and manipulate in great deceptions for personal wealth and power regardless of the destruction. Not 100 times what King George and parliament did to this country and its people when we were British subjects compares to what these in the U.S. Senate have done in the claim of benevolence.

An alleged underage drunken man struck a pedestrian with his vehicle on Broad Street. Review Managing Editor

Order of crime

olina Kadiyska, 22, was crossing Broad Street in the crosswalk at Ellsworth Street when a 1999 green Audi A4 traveling north on the 1100 block of South Broad is believed to have sped through the red light at 3:50 a.m. Sunday and struck her and then three unattended parked vehicles on the east side of the street, according to the Police Public Affairs Unit. The car’s driver, DeDeandre andre Barnes, of the Barnes 700 block of McKean Street, and a male passenger allegedly fled the scene, but returned a short while later to retrieve items from the car. Barnes, who turned 19 Saturday, was then arrested at the scene and charged with aggravated assault, accidents involving death or personal injury, driving under the influence, aggravated assault by a vehicle while driving under the influence, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and three counts of criminal mischief. His passenger was not charged. Kadiyska, a dancer at The Rock School, 1101 S. Broad St., was transported to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in critical condition and placed in the intensive care unit. The school’s directors, along with staff members and dancers, stayed with her until her family arrived from Bulgaria at about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, according to a post on The Rock School’s tumblr blog. The resident of the 1100 block of South Broad Street was pronounced dead at 11:32 a.m. Tuesday, police said. Barnes’ charges were not upgraded at press time. He is scheduled to appear in court April 3, according to court records. He remains in jail as bail was set at $1 million Monday. Kadiyska moved from Bulgaria to study at the Passyunk Square school about three years ago. “Polina was a beautiful dancer on her way to a wonderful professional career. … Our hearts and love go out to Polina and her family. She was a beautiful person in every way,” the blog post read.

While police have not confirmed the incidents are linked, a pair of men robbed two area pizza shops employees of their belongings and vehicles on consecutive nights on the same Grays Ferry block during St. Patrick’s Day weekend. At 9:35 p.m. Saturday, a 35-year-old deliveryman from South Side Pizza (Police could not confirm whether it was the 917 S. 20th St. or 740 Mifflin St. location) double-parked his 1995 gold Toyota Corolla DX on the 2500 block of Manton Street and dialed the patron’s phone number, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The man who answered asked him to come to the steps. As the employee retrieved the pizza from the car, a man pointed a silver revolver with a long barrel at him and said, “Give me the money. Give me everything,” Tolliver said. As the gunman rummaged through his pockets taking $100, a cell phone and his wallet that contained his ID and a bank card, he said, “Come on, man. Come on” repeatedly while another man jumped in the driver’s seat of the auto and turned on the ignition. The gunman demanded the victim stay still as the pair fled in his car, traveling east on Manton and north on 25th Street, Tolliver said. The gunman was described as black with a dark complexion, age 27, 6 foot, thin and wearing a black jacket and light blue jeans. His accomplice was described as black, 5-foot-6; having a medium build; and wearing a gray hoody. The next night at 9 p.m. a 32-year-old deliverywoman from Jackson Village Pizza, 2151 S. 22nd St., saw two men standing by a dumpster as she parked on the street, Tolliver said. She exited her 1997 Honda Civic coupe and knocked on the delivery address’ door with no luck. When she returned to her car, one of the men pointed a black semi-automatic handgun at her and said, Give me the money” before swiping $230 from her pocket. He then demanded her car keys and shoved her. The armed man passed the keys to another man, who hopped in the driver’s seat, and continued to point the gun at her until he entered the passenger’s side. The duo fled east on Manton and north on 25th. The gunman was described as black with a medium complexion, age 24, 5-foot-8,

Bank robber suspects arrested

Cleaned out A man attacked an elderly dry cleaner worker and robbed the business. The man entered Cosimo’s Dry Cleaning, 2600 S.

Two suspects were taken into custody last week for a Girard Estate bank robbery that occurred in December. A 2005 gray Pontiac Grand Prix circled the block near Conestoga Bank, 21st Street and West Passyunk Avenue, and parked on the 2100 block of Ritner Street at 12:50 p.m. Dec. 15, according to the Police Public Affairs Unit. Jeffrey Jeffery Carter Carter, who was allegedly behind the wheel, exited the vehicle and walked to the bank. He inquired about opening an account, but exited the bank and returned to the car where Ricardo Newsuan was believed Ricardo to be a passenger. Newsuan The bank manager reported the suspicious activity, police said. Upon police arrival, officers spotted the car and received a radio call indicating the bank was being robbed, police said. Newsuan, 29, of Southwest Philly, allegedly fled with an undisclosed amount of cash while Carter, 27, of the 1700 block of Reed Street, was arrested at the scene. Newsuan was later identified as the other offender. The FBI Violent Crimes Task Force, as well as the Bensalem and Falls Township police departments arrested Newsuan March 13.

News

CHECKER continued from page 1 as 80 children from low-income families will benefit from its two components. The 70-year-old performer, a graduate of South Philadelphia High School, 2101 S. Broad St., capped the afternoon event by discussing how he indulged his curiosity as a 9-year-old boy by enrolling at Curtis, one of Settlement’s six branches. “Little did I know what would become of my hopes,” he said, drawing laughs when revealing his instructor’s advice not to pick his nose when playing the keys. Checker made the jaunt from his home on the 500 block of Christian Street for one year and proudly declared his status as one of 300,000 predecessors to the youngsters whom Settlement will assist through the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation. The eponymous 12-year-old entity receives funding through the estate of the former owner of the Washington Redskins and Los Angeles Lakers and Kings and chose six sites to participate in its Widening the Stage program. Set to assist Settlement’s four Philadelphia sites and renewable for three years, the allotment will allow Executive Director Helen Eaton and her colleagues to select 50 pupils for their ensemble program and choose 30 students to receive private instruction, with the latter learners to prepare for ensemble auditions. The children, ages 8 to 18, will take master classes, perform solo and as groups, and attend leadership institutes to ready themselves for college tryouts and music careers. Parent workshops and instrument loans also will mark the ensemble expansion. “We are looking for students who dream concertos,” Cooke Foundation program manager Natalie Rodriguez Jansorn said of recruiting from various agencies to land the youths, who will begin to advance their acumen in June. Her employer approached Settlement in the summer, and Eaton, whose 19-month tenure has included the creation of a Willow Grove facility and a successful centennial campaign, submitted a September proposal and received favor in December. “We want to give all children occasions to thrive,” Eaton said, reiterating Jansorn’s point that limited economic circumstances should not restrict opportunities for achievements. Settlement customarily awards $2 million each year to maturing music makers. Its latest bequest, one of its largest, had Mayor Michael Nutter beaming. “Settlement has played a monumental role in forming Philadelphia’s creative economy,” Nutter said of the country’s largest community school of the arts, which, in addition, to Checker, has instructed such famous figures as actor Kevin Bacon, tenor Mario Lanza and one of his predecessors at City Hall, the late Frank Rizzo. The current mayor, who last year earned

Chubby Checker, far right, joined dignitaries, including Settlement’s Executive Director Helen Eaton and Mayor Michael Nutter, second and third from left, respectively, to celebrate a grant that will benefit youngsters from underprivileged families. S ta f f P h o t o b y G r e g B e z a n i s

a National Public Leadership in the Arts Award, lauded Settlement’s environs as sources for obtaining high-quality cultural experiences. “I’ve said it many times and will continue to state that art and music are as important as math, science and social studies,” Nutter said. “Settlement nurtures talent and helps it to reach its fullest potential.” He flashed frequent smiles when introducing Checker, who offered his gratitude to the Cooke Foundation, whose half-dozen gifts total $1.26 million. Admitting to nervousness, the man renowned for his pipes let his voice project its smooth cadence to thank his old school’s benefactor. “Because of you,” he said, “someone might twist into a bright new future.” A SOUTH CAROLINA native, Checker occupied the last speaking spot, which presented novelty for an entertainer whose ’60s success accustomed him to being at the top. “I had not thought I accomplished that much,” he said after the event of tickling the ivories at Settlement.

He confessed to taking up the piano because it presented the means to understand the notes bouncing around in his head. “We’re all born with a tape, so my interest in music was there from the beginning,” he said. Through tunes, he discovered what he dubbed “ a hole world of wonder.” After classes at Lower Moyamensing’s Southern, He would flock to the Italian Market to work at Fresh Farm Poulty and the Produce Market. Singing over a loudspeaker, he won patrons’ praise at the former, with his sepervisor at the latter tabbing him “Chubby.” Henry Colt, Fresh Farm’s owner, used a professional contact to score his worker a recording session with American Bandstand host Dick Clark. Barbara Mallery, Clark’s first wife, asked the youngster what name he went by, to which he responded “Chubby.” As he had just finished a Fats Domino impression, she engaged in quick word play and conjured “Checker” as an alliterative last name that, like Domino, referred to a game piece. “The name stuck and I became Chubby

Checker,” the proud artist said. His first single, January ’59’s “The Class,” reached No. 38 on Billboard Magazine’s Hot-100 chart and set him up for an incredibly successful half-decade of hits. Hank Ballard and the Midnighters had released “The Twist” in ’59, hitting No. 28. In June ’60, the ambitious Checker covered the tune, taking it all the way to the top. “Everything sort of blossomed with ‘The Twist,’” he said. “Dance floors became filled with teenagers and adults, and I was the major cause.” In June ’60, “Pony Time” yielded his second No. 1, and “The Twist recharted in the supreme spot Jan. ’62. From ’59 through ’65, Checker accumulated 22 Top-40 songs. Those ditties fill Checker with pride, with “The Twist” bringing him the most satisfaction and acclaim. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Hot 100 listings, Billboard in 2008 named his biggest recording the most popular single to have appeared in its pages. That same year saw him achieve a No. 1 dance hit with “Knock Down the Walls.” “It’s been an interesting ride,” Checker said. He received an invitation to speak a few days before the engagement and accepted to end his absence from the area. “I don’t make it back often because I’m too busy recording,” he said of infrequent visits. A student of today’s music, Checker deems it a worthy derivative of his contributions. “Settlement gave me my start, and the dance floor still belongs to Chubby,” he said. “Today is big, however, for that next generation.” SPR Contact Staff Writer Joseph Myers at jmyers@ southphillyreview.com or ext. 124.

WALMART continued from page 1 large scale face-lift of an undisclosed amount was built out over the former lawn and garden area. Four walls were constructed in lieu of the exterior greenhouse option to better serve the nutritional needs of customers. The grocery section — now situated to the right of the new main entrance — expands the space to a total of 149,845 square feet. “As we present this store, at this location, we have a full line of groceries now, from fresh produce, meat and dairy daily. It’s all here,” Pellicori, a Walmart employee of more than 15 years, said. “These customers and our associates are so excited and I know that we are going to serve our customers well here in the city and deliver an excellent store each and every day — every day low cost and every day low price for our customers.” BUT SHOPPERS AREN’T the only ones reaping the rewards as the retail giant prides itself on being an involved community partner within each local neighborhood. Along with the assistance of 1st District Councilman Mark Squilla, Pellicori and his team identified community partners — some of which they have provided support to in the past. During the ceremony, one of the store’s 17 associates, who have been working at this location since its initial January 1995 opening, handed a representative from each of the 14 organizations a $1,000 blown-up check. The nonprofits include: Burke Community Fund, Second and Jackson streets; Gloria Dei Old Sweedes’ Episcopal Church; Center City’s Mercy Hospice; Murphy Recreation Center, 300 Shunk St.; Our Lady of Mount Carmel, 2319 S. Third St.; Pennsport Civic Association, 1837 S. Second St.; Philadelphia Mummers Fancy Brigade Association; Philadelphia New Year’s Shooters and Mummers Museum, 1100 S.

Third St.; and Young Children’s Center for the Arts, 929 S. Water St. “Not only is this a grand reopening, but it’s a reconnection to the community and the neighborhoods around here and that’s what’s important,” Squilla, of Front Street and Snyder Avenue, said while addressing the crowd. He stressed the importance of a mutual partnership among the surrounding neighborhoods, his constituents and Walmart and its associates dedication in giving back to the community.

The dedicated shopper, who said she chose Walmart for years because of its low costs, witnessed the renovations and said she was curious to see the final product. “It looks so nice and clean,” she said before shopping.

With a commitment to its customers, the extensive overhaul also was great for the local economy. “We created over 200 additional jobs to what we had, which brings us to about 550 associates,” Pellicori said.

As a lighting and scenic designer, a Passyunk Square resident transports audiences to another place and time at the theater.

W

By Jess Fuerst Review Contributor

hen viewing any of the great theaters this city has to offer, imagine if it were completely dark. Thom Weaver, of 10th and Annin streets, is responsible for making sure audiences know “what to look at and how to look at it,” he said. Weaver, a lighting designer, creates the mood and atmosphere for the city’s great pieces by illuminating the sets and the action as it unfolds. “My job is about creating the tone or the era the play is set in and emotionally creating a theme and place,” Weaver said. “Especially with something like ‘Cyrano,’ where we have one set that has to be nine different places.” Weaver’s design can be seen on the stage at Old City’s Arden Theatre Co. through April 15, where a new staging of Edmond Rostand’s French love story “Cyrano,” directed by Weaver’s brother-in-law Aaron Posner, is being staged. “Lighting most affects and ephemerally creates a time and place: Sunrise or sunset in the garden, or night, so my prime role on ‘Cyrano’ is to turn a solitary set and give you a sense of the constantly changing places,” the 34-year-old said. “And given the richness of the poetry of ‘Cyrano,’ the richness in the light, as well, is a goal.”


Lifestyles When the lighting was set for the Arden production, Weaver began designing for Azuka Theatre’s world premiere of “Hope Street and Other Lonely Places,” a Philadelphia-set story about heroine addiction that premiered last week and runs through April 1 at Center City’s First Baptist Church. “The challenges of doing a new play is that the writer is there making changes and my work and the actors’ work and the kind of changes the director makes, affect the writer’s changes,” Weaver, who also did the set design for “Hope Street,” said. “You sort of do it in reverse: You approach ‘Cyrano’ like it’s never been done before and ‘Hope Street’ like it’s a classic 100-year-old play.” The longtime lighting designer has more recently began working in set design, with ‘Hope Street’ the sixth production he has worked on. Also on his plate is being the artistic director of Flashpoint Theatre Co., a role he has held for two years. “As the artistic director of a theater company, it’s a similar challenge: Any given day I don’t know what I’m going to encounter,” he said. “I count on the experience and teaching that have equipped me to look at those challenges since I never know what they are going to be.”

GROWING UP IN Cherry Hill, N.J., Weaver was raised by a theater family, in which both his grandparents were vaudeville performers in the Philadelphia area. With parents that taught at South Jersey high schools and a sister, Erin, who was an actress, Weaver always saw theater as a family affair. “It was the family business, so I grew up in it. So it was that or baseball,” he said. “We were four generations of theater artists.” By the age of 17, he was working in local Philly houses as a lighting assistant. “It was a fairly small theater community; the Arden had just opened and there wasn’t this array of small- and mediumsize companies as there is now,” Weaver said. “Since then, the community has just been growing and growing.” Weaver attended Carnegie Mellon University, where he studied lighting and scenic design. Upon graduation in 2000, he immediately went to work in New York City. “I tried acting a little, but I kind of just enjoyed the holistic approach to theater that designing is. I can think about the entirety of the play, not just an individual character,” he said. “It was a weird world where I kind of felt like I understood that

language, it just made sense to me for some reason.” Eventually Weaver decided there was more language to learn, and he matriculated at the Yale School of Drama for a threeyear master’s program in lighting design. Shortly after he received his degree in ’07, he returned to Philly. “I stayed in New York another year, but by that time I really was growing to miss Philadelphia, and missing Philadelphia and disliking New York at that point,” he said. “I spent a long time there and I was really dissatisfied by the way that theater worked in New York. It was upsetting and not very interesting and I decided to get out of there.” Four years ago he settled in his current apartment, which was a former flower shop and, before that, a deli, so Weaver has a short-order window in his place. “It was relatively simple [to fit into the Philadelphia community]. I had relationships here and the community was extremely welcoming right away,” he said. “I would never refer to it as easy, getting work, because getting work is never easy.” Returning to the area also allowed for Weaver to work with Erin on a production. “My sister lived here, not too far away

in Bella Vista so I didn’t look anywhere else,” Weaver, who has been nominated for five Barrymore awards and a Helen Hayes Award, said. Three years ago the brother-and-sister team took part in a production in Washington, D.C., where his sister and Posner now reside. Posner comes back to the area often, as he is the co-founder of the Arden, and the two fall into synch immediately. “Aaron and I have done so many shows together at this point a lot of our communication is unspoken,” Weaver, who estimates they have collaborated about 15 times, said. “He knows when I don’t like something and I know when he doesn’t, we don’t have to say it.” With scenic design recently filling out his résumé, Weaver is concentrating on becoming the best at the many roles he already has on his plate. “Right now my focus is on being a better artistic director,” Weaver said. “I was never trained for that, that on any given day, I’m asked four questions that I don’t know the answers to. The big focus is on doing as good a job as I can running the company right now.” SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/news/lifestyles.

Cardella

By Tom Cardella Columnist

Before there was Ted Baxter (On the recent passing of Temple University professor John Roberts) was an 18-year-old communications major at Temple University in 1956 when I first met professor John Roberts. If my memory is correct, the course he taught in freshman year was Radio 43. Upon meeting him, I was impressed, even if he probably wasn’t. After all, Roberts wasn’t any fuzzy-headed academic. He was a real television newscaster at Channel 6. Those of us who dreamed of going into the business didn’t often get to interact with someone who was actually on the air. Roberts with his good looks and mellifluous voice was as impressed with himself as we were. Who knew that I was looking at the forerunner of Ted Baxter of “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.” Roberts was ready for the challenge. He would mold us, his pupils with our nasal Philadelphia accents, our bursting little egos, and our wildly optimistic dreams, into broadcasters. In his classes, the good professor would regale us with his insider tales of the world of television. Roberts was the TV weekend news anchor on Channel 6, which boasted Gunnar Back as its main guy. Back had the unhappy fortune of having to compete with John Facenda on Channel 10. Back played it straight. His big shtick was to sign off by saying “Back with the news tomorrow.” Roberts told us that Back was a real journalist while Facenda was just good at reading scripts someone else wrote for him. We secretly watched Facenda and ignored Back just like most of the other TV viewers in the Delaware Valley. I remember Roberts also telling us that then-President Eisenhower had such poor syntax that the TV news networks had to edit his speeches just so folks could understand him in the news clips. What would be a frightening prospect today — editing a president’s speeches for public consumption — didn’t make the slightest dent on our cotton-candy brains. Roberts liked to fancy himself an expert on speech dialects. He boasted that just by listening to us read a few lines of a commercial he could tell what area of the country we hailed from. In those days, the overwhelming number of Temple students came from Philadelphia or its surrounding suburbs, so that didn’t seem to be that difficult a feat. However, Roberts gathered us together to prove his point. Each of us dutifully read a

I

few lines of script while the good professor shouted out our hometown. When it came to my turn, I dug deep for what I thought was my best impersonation of Vin Scully (baseball voice of the then-Brooklyn Dodgers). Roberts stopped me after a couple of lines and told me that he perceived a trace of Southern dialect in my speech. “What part of the South are you from originally?” he asked me confidently. “South Philadelphia,” I answered and the class cracked up. Our professor was undaunted and moved right on to the next student. In our senior year, Roberts taught a class on using a television news film camera. We were teamed in pairs and assigned one of the buildings on the university’s thenconcrete campus and told to film it, write a script, and, for all intents and purposes, make a mini-documentary. All through the semester, we toiled at filming the various assigned buildings, trying to figure out how in the world we could make our project interesting. Finally as the semester was nearing its end, we gathered with Roberts to view just what it was we filmed. That was when he blithely told us that the film in the cameras had been overexposed, but we received passing grades, and after all, that was basically what we were worried about anyway. Had we been misled? Was it just a colossal blunder? The mystery still echoes through the ages. Our collegiate years passed quickly. The fun and games were over. It was time to leave the sanctuary of make-believe radio and television for the real world. We were confident. The world was waiting breathlessly for our talent. We soon found that none of the local outlets were interested in us at all. The want ads in Broadcasting Magazine directed us to far-flung places such as Lafayette, La. and Hastings, Neb. But even those stations returned our audition tapes with form letter rejections. The Temple job placement service was not geared for its communications graduates. I was referred to Korvettes, the Best Buy of that era. The “broadcast” job turned out to be shouting over the loudspeaker, “Today’s sale is stemware.” I went to see Roberts. He said, “I’ve got just the job for you at a station in York, Pennsylvania.” I dutifully sent an audition tape to York and expectantly awaited a reply. I received a phone call from a very confused program director at the station. He told me that he didn’t understand why he was receiving all these tapes from Temple students when the job had been filled six years ago. I went back to see Roberts. Somehow he explained away the York fiasco with a smile on his face. He was ready with another suggestion. In ’60, we were still subject to the military draft. “Join the service,” he told me. And I did. SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/opinion/ cardella.

‘Hunger’ satisfied

Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), left, and Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth), right, star in “The Hunger Games,” opening Friday in area theaters.

By R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer

M

odern media is skewered, a fiery uprising begins in an oppressed culture, and yet the strongest component of “The Hunger Games” saga is simple and plain: This story, cooked up by author Suzanne Collins for her unstoppable best sellers, is about children forced to kill each other, a horrifying premise that never runs short of dramatic heft. Held as an annual, televised tournament to remind the villages of a dystopian future to never again defy their oppressive ruler, the titular battle royale involves 24 youths, who are treated like gods until they have to pick each other off, leaving only one as the champion. No matter the movie’s missteps, the stakes are always sky-high, making for a uniquely intense filmgoing experience. The film’s protagonist, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), puts herself in the violent mix in order to save her younger sister, who was the actual female pick in one of 12 chilling lotteries. Along with a baker’s son named Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson), Katniss is whisked away to the shimmery, privileged Capitol, only to be dropped into a man-made “arena” teeming with weapons, traps, pine trees and rough terrain. Will it be harder to fight the competitors or Mother Nature? Will Katniss be able to woo enough sponsors to send her precious supplies? When the time comes, will she slaughter her new companion? Boasting more merit in its first reel than all the “Twilight” films combined, this similarly young adult-based fantasy is fast becoming cinema’s new phenomenon, with consumers of all stripes dying to be swept up in the eerie world of a tough heroine (a familiar love triangle, however integral, is graciously left on the sidelines).

Though not given much personality by director Gary Ross, “The Hunger Games” is a rather sterling adaptation, hyper-aware of when to trim the fat and how to manage unwieldy exposition. Like the book, its pace never relents, and virtually every actor is shrewdly cast save Donald Sutherland (the name’s President Snow, not Santa). Readers, especially, will be highly pleased, and they’ll tell all their friends until, as the film promises, the world will be watching indeed.

The Hunger Games PG-13 Three reels out of four Opens Friday in area theatres

Recommended Rental A Dangerous Method R Available Tuesday The latest drama to see director David Cronenberg explore the twisted connection of mind and body, “A Dangerous Method” charts the rise of modern psychoanalysis via the heady, sex-tinged practices of Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen) and Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender), professional friends driven apart by a patient-turnedpupil (Keira Knightley). Mortensen is stellar as Freud, Knightley transforms herself, and Fassbender fattens his everimpressive résumé. For the cast alone, this one’s not to be missed.

Studious students

he South Philly Review is turning 65 this year and we want to share in the celebration with all of our great neighbors. Instead of collecting our Social Security check, we are dedicating our May 17 issue to the businesses, people and places that have achieved similar milestones. We want to hear from business owners who have been around for 20 years or more or a special couple that continues to enjoy 50-plus years of marital bliss. Tell us more than how many years you’ve been around. How did your story begin? What are the biggest changes you’ve seen? Is there someone who puts their heart and soul into the operation? Please tell us your story in about 200 words and include contact info. Send your story pitch our way via e-mail, fax or regular mail. Photos are not required. The entry deadline is noon April 20.

Rocchino’s Italian Coal Oven By Phyllis Stein-Novack R e s ta u r a n t R e v i e w e r

A

number of you may be surprised to learn I write at home. Writing is a disciplined art form. I am up early to do research, work on my columns and my cookbook, field phone calls and answer e-mails. By the time mid-afternoon arrives, I need a break. My sister Sandy and I often go to the movies on a weekday. We take in a late matinee and look forward to an early dinner. Last week, we enjoyed “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen” and walked along Chestnut Street where a number of people were dining al fresco. Several restaurants have recently opened in Old City. We thought about going to Reserve, a steakhouse and the Monkey Bar, a funky place that replaced the Society Hill Hotel. Along the way, we spotted Rocchino’s Italian Coal Oven. “I’m in the mood for pizza,” Sandy said as we read the menu posted outside. It’s a casual eatery equipped with several televisions tuned to the NCAA Tournament games. There’s a large bar in the front and seating near the pizza oven in the dining room. We slid into a large wooden booth and talked about the menu. The all-day bill of fare features hot and cold antipasti, salads, pasta and pizza. This is my kind of place because I often like to build a meal around shared appetizers and a pizza or pasta. The staff was friendly and courteous and answered our questions with a smile. A warm loaf of seeded Italian bread arrived on a wooden board along with a ramekin of tasty pesto and one of olive oil. Peking Inn: 20th St. and Penrose Ave., 215-271-1389, $$

Dinner began with meatballs ($9) and eggplant Parmesan ($8). Two good-sized meatballs were prepared with ground beef, pork and veal and topped with tomato sauce. Sandy and I liked the flavor and texture, but felt they could have been hotter. The eggplant was a cold, soupy, goopy mess. It was inedible. Our courteous waiter whisked it away and I knew another serving would not be much better. The Prince Edward Island mussels ($11) were overcooked and mealy doused in a thin tomato sauce. Neither Sandy nor I could taste basil and garlic, which were listed on the menu. I ate two of them for the sake of this review and stopped. I wanted a glass of wine and asked our waiter for advice. He gave me a sample of the Malbec that tasted like cough syrup. A gentleman came over to assist me. He recommended the Côtes du Rhône ($11) a full flavored, rich red, which was a highlight of the evening. “I wanted you to try another eggplant Parmesan,” our waiter said. “This one is hot and there is no charge. It was hot, indeed, but the replacement was a watery and goopy mess that was topped with too much cheese. The restaurant crams this dish in an oval ramekin recalling the 1950s. When prepared correctly, the dish is a stacked wonder of eggplant, cheese and fresh tomato. I figured Rocchino’s has a bit of difficulty with hot fare. We went for the beet and goat cheese salad ($8), which looked nothing like the photograph on the restaurant’s

website. About four or five large slices of roasted beets were placed on a rectangular plate and topped with goat cheese, which tasted more like cream cheese. Although the beets were nicely cooked, dressed in an arugula pesto and topped with a scattering of pistachio nuts, it lacked flavor. When it comes to pizza, we all know what we like. There is marvelous flavorful pizza in the city. I think Santucci’s near the Italian Market is my favorite. I use it as a barometer to measure how fine a pie can be. White pizza with wild mushrooms ($13) rated a six out of 10. The thin-crust pie arrived piping hot, but required a drizzling of olive oil before it was served. The mushrooms appeared to be of the white

Open a bottle of wine, put on the cooking apron and transform the kitchen into a temporary trattoria featuring a classic Italian dish from chef Joseph Scarpone. By Phyllis Stein-Novack Food Columnist

ingredients I still use today,” he said. We chatted about our mutual love for Meyer lemons and how readily available they are in Philadelphia. “I remember cooking breakfast at Travina for Georges Perrier and Paul Bocuse so many years ago,” he recalled. “They were both smoking.” Joseph learned to cook from family members especially his father, who is as picky about ingredients as his son is. “I wish I had my grandmother’s chitara,” he said winsomely. “We don’t know where it is. It just disappeared.” The 40-year-old chef works seven nights a week. He is clearly comfortable in his own skin, mind and heart. Ulivo has given him a blank canvas on, which he creates his masterful dishes. “At 40, some people experience a midlife crisis,” he said. “I call it a mid-life awakening.”

■ Spaghetti alla Carbonara ■ Ingredients:

1 pound of spaghetti, cooking according to the package directions About 6 ounces pancetta, cut into small cubes 2 cups heavy cream, at room temperature 6 egg yolks Coarse cracked black pepper Kosher salt, to taste Parmigiano-Reggiano, for grating

Note from Phyllis: Joseph and I prefer this dish with lots of pepper, but you can alter the amount as you wish. If you have peppercorns and a mortal and pestle, simply crush them. SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/foodand-drink/features.

Directions: Crisp the pancetta in a large skillet, at least 12-inches in diameter. Remove the pancetta with a slotted spoon. Place the cream in a bowl and gradually whisk in the egg yolks one at a time. Keep whisking until the cream and yolks are well blended. Drain the pasta in a colander and place it in the skillet. Add the pancetta, egg/cream mixture, lots of salt and pepper. Gently heat the pasta in the sauce and place it on four warm plates. Top with the cheese. Serves four.

everal weeks ago, I named Ulivo, Joseph Scarpone’s Queen Village trattoria, the best restaurant of 2011. After Cousin Carl and I savored one of the finest Italian meals this side of “the boot,” I immediately knew I wanted to cook with him in my kitchen. I had a difficult time selecting a dish, but since I have never made Spaghetti alla Carbonara, Joseph and I were set to go. Videographer Anthony Zagarella arrived early to set up. Joseph brought his knives and the ingredients needed to prepare this classic Roman dish. “Are you ready for bacon and eggs for breakfast?” Joseph kibitzed as I took my place as his sous-chef. I pulled out my new green Le Creuset pot and several mixing bowls. Spaghetti alla Carbonara requires a handful of ingredients and very little equipment. Joseph told us the dish was created after American soldiers liberated Rome during World War II. “The soldiers gave out bacon and eggs, which were scarce during the war,” he said. The word carbonaro means charcoal burner in Italian. This dish became associated with coal miners not just because they took a shine to it, but because it contains a lot of coarse cracked black pepper.

“I’m using guanciale, which is unsmoked pig’s cheeks,” Joseph said as he cut the meat into small cubes. “I have to order it from a butcher but you can use pancetta in it place. Some butchers in the Italian Market may carry it.” For this recipe, you will need 1 pound of spaghetti, heavy cream, egg yolks, pancetta, salt and lots of coarse cracked pepper. “How much pancetta do we need,” I asked? “Just use as much as you like,” he replied. Ah, I thought, a man after my own heart. You can never get enough bacon. While the water boiled for the pasta, we chatted about Joseph’s days cooking in California before returning to his Drexel Hill home in 2005 when he opened Sovalo in Northern Liberties. “I worked at Travina in Saint Helena, California where I became acquainted with

I think about you all the time, And everyday it hurts to cry. So much has happened in my life, I’m not sure how hard to try. Tears are falling constantly, My heart hurts everyday. I think about your beautiful smile, That I pray I see again someday. The sweet smell of your perfume, Has slowly faded away. But all your helpful teachings, Are always here to stay. I can’t express how much you taught me, So much I can’t explain. All the times I can remember, Never once heard you complain. So many hearts were broken, The day God called you home. It seems as though each one of us, Were left to survive alone. I know there was a reason, That you had to leave. To keep us in your watchful eyes, So now in God I really do believe.

His Explorers, Atlantic 10 residents like the Owls, earned a home game in the National Invitation Tournament by going 21-12. Ending a 20year postseason drought, they faced the Big Ten’s University of Minnesota Golden Gophers at Tom Gola Arena. Pettis, a native of the 1500 block of South 15th Street, sniped 19 points in the 70-61 setback. Sophomore guard Tyreek Duren, another ex-Saint, dished four assists while scoring six points.

ntonio “Scoop” Jardine made apparent Saturday that victories outweigh criticism. “We don’t worry about how we’re playing,” the senior guard said after Syracuse University downed Kansas State University 75-59 at Pittsburgh’s CONSOL Energy Center. “We just worry about getting the W. We’re advancing to the Sweet 16. That’s all that matters when we get there, too.” A native of the 1800 block of South Taylor Street and a graduate of Ss. Neumann-Goretti High School, 1736 S. 10th St., Jardine countered condemnation of

the Orange based on their 72-65 March 15 NCAA Tournament second round defeat of the University of North CarolinaAsheville. Assured of helping his New York team to set a single-season school record for victories, he tallied 16 points and eight assists to carry his mates past Kansas State. His heroics sent his squad to Boston’s TD Garden for tonight’s 7:15 tilt against the University of Wisconsin. Jardine’s 33-2 unit, the East Region’s No. 1 seed, avoided what would have been unprecedented ignominy by beating UNCAsheville. A rally kept the athletes from being the first regional top dogs to fall to the usually overmatched puppy that earns the final berth. The Bulldogs brought their bite, yet Syracuse, the land’s top-ranked bunch for six weeks, used experience to excel. Jardine dealt seven assists and totaled 11 points. If his gang can gnawl through the Badgers on CBS, it will face either Cincinnati or Ohio State for the right to head to

Junior John Davis and his Neumann-Goretti teammates are packing their bags for Penn State University where tomorrow night they’ll be seeking a third straight PIAA AAA championship. Next in line for the Saints is District 7’s Montour High School. For those looking to make the road trip, tip is 8 p.m. at the Bryce Jordan Center. The East Passyunk Crossing squad advanced with Tuesday’s 74-43 thrashing of Boys’ Latin. Davis led the offensive effort with 19 points, 14 rebounds and five blocks. SPR

he Lady Huskies of Prep Charter High School, 1928 Point Breeze Ave., this season have blasted opponents by, among many impressive results, 67, 66, 60 and 58 points. Blowouts prove talent but nail-biters show mettle, and the West Passyunk-based ballers revealed resolve twice last week. Coach Paul Rieser’s troops squeaked past Villa Maria Academy 53-50 Saturday at Norristown Area High School after narrowly evading Bethlehem Catholic 49-48 March 14 at Royersford’s Spring-Ford High School. The results propelled them to last night’s PIAA AAA semifinal against Lancaster Catholic, which began after press time, also at Spring-Ford. The two-time defending Public League champions and recent City titlists, the hoopsters had romped over Susquehanna Township 70-46 March 11 at South Philadelphia High School, 2101 S. Broad St. District 12’s top seed, they found the parochial foes more willful and sealed their 27th and 28th wins by calling on work-

horse, senior guard Kahleah Copper. The North Philadelphian, MVP of the earlier postseason triumphs, led all scorers March 14 with 22 points. With 18 seconds left, sophomore guard Ciera Nimmons knocked down a free throw to claim a battle that featured 20 lead changes and 12 ties. The Lady Huskies trailed by two after three quarters Saturday, the same deficit it had overcome against Bethlehem, but Villa Maria could not stop Copper, who blew away the Hurricanes with 29 points. The girls’ squad at Ss. Neumann-Goretti High School, 1736 S. 10th St., had hoped to be Prep Charter’s next adversary, but the East Passyunk Crossing unit fell to Lancaster 50-27 Saturday at Reading High School’s Geigle Complex. The Saints had advanced thanks to March 10’s 49-40 conquest of Nazareth Academy and March 14’s stunning 53-42 vanquishing of Allentown Central Catholic, District 11’s top seed. In the latter, senior center Omowumi Rafiu scored 14 points and snared eight rebounds. Her team finishes the year at 20-7.
