onversation usually comes to a halt when talking about someone’s age, but when it comes to discussing the age of music, one can easily get caught up in the heated argument. “What you might consider to be old, I consider to be old school,” Ali Hackett, of the 2100 block of Reed Street, said. “Old school is Al Green, early Temptations, Earth, Wind and Fire. Oldies is music from the ’50s, ’60s and maybe the early’70s. “ Also known as the “King of Oldies,” Hackett is hosting “Throwback Thursdays” 5 to 9 p.m., or “till the cows come home” as he put it, every Thursday through Oct.

s Monday’s rain replenished the garden soil of The Central Club for Boys and Girls, 2537 Alter St., Rev. Stanley Wilson pondered his Grays Ferry roots. The 62-year-old preacher had his prayers answered May 15, as the Court of Common Pleas granted a six-month stay of execution on the sale of two nearby lots

he acquired in October 2010. The overseer of eight spaces along the 2500 block of Alter Street, has embarked on a crusade to have affiliated debt forgiven, a move that, if successful, will sustain full operation of the organization his mother Mabel Wilson chartered in 1946. Having enlisted the Public Interest Law Center to gain a 90-day delay, Stanley Wilson, the club’s 10-year leader, is seeking to receive rulings from the Philadelphia Of-

fice of Property Assessment pertaining to prospective and retroactive nonprofit real estate tax exemptions. He obtained the lots through a quiet title action and, not having received advice from former counsel to file nonprofit exemption applications for any of the properties, found himself stunned in November when learning of the proposed sale of 2530 and 2540 Alter St., a pair of See CENTRAL CLUB page 10

Clearing up transparency To the Editor: The mayor’s vow on government transparency is just political theater. Ever since Google became synonymous with the Internet, we have become accustomed to having instant access to an abundance of information. City government continues to proclaim transparency on how our tax dollars are spent, but the ugly truth is pertinent information that should be readily available to the general public is either under lock and key or you have to perform a CSI investigation to track it down. When visiting phila.gov, it becomes abundantly clear that the website’s content contains more persuasive promotion than objective data laid out in user-friendly spreadsheets or color-coded pie charts. When citizens visit the City’s main website, they can scroll halfway down the page and on the right side is the word that the mayor and his administration have reiterated to the public as often as you hear cheers at a Phillies game — “Transparency.� The mayor’s most current version of transparency is entitled �Mayor’s Operating Budget Details for Fiscal 2011.� This monstrosity is comprised of three sections that totals about 2,500 pages, and the sad part of it all is that many columns in this publicly available document are left blank and it is unfortunate the taxpayer has to use their imagination to fill-in-the-blanks. When citizens visit the Philadelphia Police Department website, phillypolice.com, objective statistics are barely mentioned. A visitor of the site can see there are 11 different ranks in the police department, but why can’t the salary or salary ranges of the positions be listed? As a taxpayer, I would like to know, without having to rely on a third-party source, if Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey has a higher base salary than Vice President Joe Biden? What also is not mentioned is the crime statistics throughout the various districts across the city in comparison with previous years or how many officers work in the Internal Affairs Bureau. The City needs to vastly improve upon displaying data in a condensed, user-friendly format so citizens can see tangible proof on what their tax dollars are being spent. The public

has endured the greatest recession since the Great Depression, as well as several years of a sluggish-economic recovery. Numerous taxpayers are scratching their heads on the insistence of City government to balance their budget on the backs of the middle-class by forcing residence to provide more when most of us have less to give. I ponder the thought, do taxpayers work to benefit the City or does the City work to benefit us? Only significantly more government transparency will tell the test of time.

Pen stroke for stroke care To the Editor: May is American Stroke Month and a time to raise more awareness about the fourth-leading cause of death that also can pack a nasty punch for those who survive a stroke but are faced with a lifetime of disability.

care by requiring the Department of Health to recognize Primary Stroke Centers in Pennsylvania and to adopt specific measures that will promote better response rates and quality of care provided at the EMS level for stroke patients. This legislation was first spearheaded by former state Rep. Douglas Reichley six years ago, who was recently elected as judge for Lehigh County Court of Common Pleas. As a four-time stroke survivor, I know how important this law is. On behalf of the American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association, I would like to commend Corbett and our state lawmakers for their support in helping us to raise awareness about this deadly and debilitating disease and thank them for passing House Bill No. 1400 that will improve quality of care for stroke patients across our Commonwealth.

endall Anderson, then 16, and his mother Rashida Anderson, 37, of the 400 block of Jackson Street, were fighting for hours the night of Nov. 25, 2011 — the day after Thanksgiving. “In the statement, he said, ‘We argued all the time and I just got tired of it,’” Assistant District Attorney Carolyn Naylor said of the statement that was read Kendall to the court as a reAnderson quirement for his plea agreement, a deal that will land him 25 to 50 years behind bars. He then went to his room and the single mother of two went to sleep, he said. “I grabbed the hammer I had in my room while I was walking back and forth thinking whether I should do it or not,” he said, according to the statement. He struck her multiple times in the head, face, back and arms with the claw part of the hammer, causing facial and skull fractures, as well as puncture wounds, Naylor said. She also suffered burn marks to her body when he tried to place her in the oven. She died from blunt force trauma to the head, but it is unknown at which point of the attack she succumbed. Anderson reported his mother missing to police two days later, according to authorities. Further investigation led homicide

A 17-year-old pled guilty to the third-degree murder of his mother, citing frequent arguments. detectives to an alley behind the Andersons’ Whitman home where they discovered her body covered by items such as a flower pots and cinder blocks. Anderson and the family agreed to a plea that included 20 to 40 years in jail for third-degree murder, two to four years for possession of an instrument of crime and one to two years each for abuse of a corpse, filing a false report and tampering with evidence, Naylor said. Anderson, who, without the plea, could have faced life in prison for first-degree murder, will begin his sentence at the Graterford state prison in Montgomery County, but will likely relocate to Pine Grove, a juvenile facility in western Pennsylvania. Anderson, who did not have a prior criminal record aside from an adjudication for a theft, did express remorse in his statement, Naylor said noting she could not speak on behalf of the family. “They’re in the middle of a situation where the defendant is still here and the mother is not, so I can’t imagine what they’re going through emotionally,” she said.

Court Report

Serving five to 10 A Point Breeze man was sentenced to five to 10 years at Graterford state prison for attempted murder of a doughnut shop employee. Wilbert Saunders, 51, pled guilty to attempted murder of the first degree May 9, according to court records. He must also undergo mental health and a drug and alcohol assessment. The resident of the 1900 block of Tasker Street walked into Dunkin Donuts, 2025 S. Broad St., at 12:16 a.m. Aug. 20, 2010 and placed an order, but when the 22-yearold male employee placed his requested beverage on the counter, Saunders pulled a gun from his pocket and demanded the worker open the register, according to police. When he didn’t comply, Saunders fired once at his face and fled. Police apprehended him on the 1400 block of West Passyunk Avenue. The victim was treated at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania for a broken nose and wound to the face. SPR

Music fans of all ages could not refrain from getting up to dance at last week’s “Throwback Thursday” at Wharton Square Park. Disc jockey Ali Hackett will be providing the tunes weekly through Oct. 4 at the Point Breeze green space. S ta f f P h o t o b y Greg Bezanis

WHARTON SQUARE continued from page 1 4 at Wharton Square Park, 2300 Wharton St., where he will play a mix of the oldies, old school and, of course, new school for Point Breeze neighbors. “I’m an oldies fanatic,” Trudy Gay, Friends of Wharton Square chairperson and long-time Hackett fan, said at last week’s gathering. The first official “Throwback Thursday” event was scheduled for May 24, but Hackett was forced to cancel it because of inclement weather. “I heard people still came out, hoping that I had a tent or something, but the weather was too much,” Hackett said. But a week later, Hackett made sure to arrive early and set up in the middle of the park. He was greeted by sunny, warm weather and several early guests eager to hear him play. Maxine Hight was there in time to hear Hackett play The Drifters’ 1964 hit “Under the Boardwalk,” she was taken aback by the song and the memories that came with it. “I was a kid when this came out,” Hight said. “I remember standing outside under the streetlights with my girlfriends when I first heard this record.”

The South Philly native, who currently resides on the 1200 block of South 23rd Street, also has been a long-time Hackett follower. “I’m excited to see him out here, and playing good music. It’s bringing a lot of the older generation out because they love this music and it’s bringing back old memories for us,” Hight said. HACKETT’S PARENTS INTRODUCED him to music at an early age while growing up in Chester. His mother’s favorite was gospel and his father played jazz, but Hackett was not limited to those two styles. “I started playing music at the age of 5,” Hackett said between laughs. “I played music whenever my parents had guests over and I made sure that everyone was having a good time. It didn’t matter what type of music is was, it was just good time music.” It is this “good time music” that Hackett wishes to share at Wharton Square. When he plays, he expects the community to listen, to remember and to have a good time. For 13 years, Hackett was a disc jockey at WHAT radio playing old school and oldies. It was considered “the best Oldies show in Philadelphia” until the station closed. Hackett then did shows for various radio stations throughout the Philadelphia

area, but nothing stuck. “Oldies and old school for example have been blended together by the radio and DJs, but there’s a definitive line between the two genres,” Hackett said. With a collection of more 15,000 records, LPs and cassettes, Hackett doesn’t just call himself a DJ. He takes on the role of both an artist and a historian, and hopes to paint pictures and memories of the past to his audience. Throughout his set, Hackett will create images of that past by playing a song, and then asking “remember when ...?” “There’s a whole generation of us folks out there who listen to this type of music and they don’t play it on the radio anymore,” he said. He believes people have just accepted this fact and are willing to listen to music that they don’t like. At Wharton Square, West Philly native Victoria Fraizer and friends lounged in beach chairs during the event. “It gives people something good to do,” Fraizer said. “People are having a good time, and hopefully this will keep the riffraff away from the neighborhood,” Delores Richardson agreed. The resident of the 1300 block of South 23rd Street said that neighborhood children need to see something different.

“Their ideas of a good time come from what they see in music videos and listening to hip-hop songs, and that’s not it,” she said. “There’s too much violence going on, and they need to see this is what a good party looks like.” And that is exactly what Hackett hopes to achieve. While last week had a strong turnout, with mainly older adults and their friends at the event and parents and their children listening in from the playground, Hackett encourages his participants to bring more guests, including the younger generation. “It’s an event for the whole family,” Hackett said. “Yes, grandma can come, but I want grandma to bring her children and her grandchildren.” Hackett hopes that the memories brought on by this event not only will trickle down to the younger generation, but the youth also will appreciate the music. And even if the younger generation does not come out, or there are only a few oldies lovers in the audience, Hackett is still proud and excited about the weekly series. “Old or young, if I wasn’t hosting this event, I would be attending this event, because it’s music, it’s people who love that music, it’s just a good time,” Hackett said.

CENTRAL CLUB

COURT REPORT continued from page 7

places key to his group’s mission to fortify the future of children through gardening. “Today’s generation lacks resources,” the West Parkside resident said from his childhood home. “This matter centers on preserving opportunities, most notably green space. This is not for selfish gain.” He learned altruism from his matriarch, who in ’29 began to serve neighbors meals with the yield from her adjacent garden. Bible study sessions, 4-H clubs and Boy and Girl Scout troops followed, with the association’s ’47 incorporation allowing Mabel Wilson to broaden her advocacy. She tended to lots created after the demolition of numerous homes, with those from 2521-33 and 2536-40 becoming her hub. They have remained a source of pride for her progeny. “We have an impressive roster of products,” Stanley Wilson, himself a descendant of Saturday gatherings, said of participants. “We have also had zero crime.” Though he has never had to dwell on devious doings, the religious figure must contemplate massive debt. With no timeline on when the City might render its decision, he needs to raise $20,000 for the two main lots. The others remain untouched, but if the City were to offer them, he expects each would cost him around $10,000 to salvage. “It is devastating,” he said of the thought of losing any turf, especially 2540. The address serves as the focal spot for club programming, as well as a destination for parties, repasts and reunions. An example of the final element will occur June 16, as participants past and present will unite to celebrate their founder’s vision. “Mabel Wilson made so many sacrifices,” Gwendolyn Belle-Scott, of 25th and Ellsworth streets, said. “We have to continue to make similar ones if we are to preserve pleasant childhoods for this area’s youth.” Like Stanley Wilson, Belle-Scott and sister Jacquelyn Belle-Moore have gone from being enthused youngsters to enjoying time as edifying elders, eagerly joining the current crop of 40 to 50 youths, including Belle-Scott’s grandson Deshaun Howard, for gardening sessions. “I enjoy working with the fruit,” the fourth-grader at St. Gabriel School, 2917 Dickinson St., said. The satisfaction with tradition was evident Monday, as Stanley Wilson and several ladies looked after the plants. They recently lost an apple tree yet still oversee an impressive collection of goods. Regardless of the contents, Belle-Moore has noticed the garden, the club’s chief identifier, has allowed residents to expand notions of community care. “They want to build this neighborhood,” the former inhabitant of 26th and Ells-

have been used in the robberies, according to court records. In the Court of Common Pleas, Doggette and Gibson are awaiting trial while Mitchell, 19, has pled guilty to eight counts of robbery and awaits his June 21 sentencing.

Stanley Wilson, right, and seven of his closest allies will join with scores of other club products for a June 16 reunion. If a City body responds favorably to their legal requests, even more children are likely to gain from their altruism. S ta f f P h o t o b y G r e g B e z a n i s

worth streets said. “The identity of the area matters to them, and they want to make it excel even more.” STANLEY WILSON AND his colleagues credit Mabel Wilson for their infectious positivity. Their hero developed an interest in assisting children as a teenager and maintained infatuation with their advancement until she passed two years ago at the age of 96. “She enjoyed arts and crafts, especially,” her son said of the late stages of his parent’s life. The City esteemed the figure so much it named the 2500 block of Alter Street “Mabel Wilson Walk” in 2009. When Stanley Wilson succeeded her, he knew bold moves would have to be made to bolster the club’s existence. Citing adverse possession, he gained the eight locations to ward off any potential, however minimal, for blight. Minus recommendations from prior legal figures, he incurred the back taxes from previous owners. In a letter to the Office of Property Assessment, Public Interest staff attorney Amy Laura Cahn relayed that before her retention, then-City Council President Anna Verna’s office became aware of Stanley Wilson’s tax burden with the resolution of the quiet title action. The office negotiated with Linebarger Goggan Blair & Sampson, LLP, acting on behalf of U.S. Bank, partial owner of the tax debt on 2530 and 2540, striking up a payment plan for the two locations. Stanley Wilson failed to receive word of the plan and rushed to find representation after receiving a notice of neglected remission. Cahn filed applications for nonprofit real estate tax exemption for him Dec. 30. Having received nonprofit status from the Internal Revenue Service May 17, ’11, Stanley Wilson recorded deeds for the tax lien foreclosure case properties Jan. 30, becoming the owner. Last month’s bit of good

news came one day before the sale would have occurred and has helped him to rally the horticultural devotees. “We have this over our heads, but we are not fretting,” he said of the predicament of having to raise money while also being aware his petition to have the taxes waived could win favor at any time. “We are just trying to continue the good work established generations ago.” Prior to the downpour, he and the others shared reflections, including ones on 2521’s “Cowboy Hill,” a plot whose sloping terrain promotes sledding and bicycle riding, and anticipated adding chapters to the club’s annals. They have diligently overseen the lots and have customarily crafted a full slate of activities for the children and the seniors, with the latter who have passed receiving a memorial garden. This year’s builders include last month’s annual planting day, a youth poetry jam, sports, health and wellness classes and trips. Camaraderie will welcome a bit of competition for October’s harvest fair. “That is going to be the ‘Battle of the Roses,’” Stanley Wilson said. He has intensified promotion of the club’s history and aims to secure funds, knowing the extra time is a blessing but not a symbol of survival. “Today’s kids need something,” he said. “This club has worked to give every child from every neighborhood an educational option. Since we have a history of drawing [participants] from all over, he have ‘Central’ in our name. We want to help kids and parents to see that they, like the thousands before them, keep neighborhoods thriving.” SPR

A Point Breeze man was sentenced to five to 10 years at Graterford state prison for attempted murder of a doughnut shop employee. Wilbert Saunders, 51, pled guilty to attempted murder of the first degree May 9, according to court records. He must also undergo mental health and a drug and alcohol assessment. The resident of the 1900 block of Tasker Street walked into Dunkin Donuts, 2025 S. Broad St., at 12:16 a.m. Aug. 20, 2010 and placed an order, but when the 22-yearold male employee placed his requested beverage on the counter, Saunders pulled a gun from his pocket and demanded the worker open the register, according to police. When he didn’t comply, Saunders fired once at his face and fled. Police apprehended him on the 1400 block of West Passyunk Avenue. The victim was treated at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania for a broken nose and wound to the face. SPR

hen Scott Donahue walked by an abandoned home on the 2300 Block of St. Albans Place he disliked the blight. So he decided to do something about it. “Any of the historic look had been lost. I live on the block so I was concerned about the house, just for the blighting effect it had on the block.” Donahue, an estate and real estate lawyer, said. “I had renovated my house on the block and so I felt I knew how to really restore the house.” This project, unlike the majority of home renovations, had a specific requirement. The 2300 block of St. Albans Place is a designated historic area, so like Donahue’s home renovation, the restoration of this long-abandoned house would have to be overseen by the Philadelphia Historical Commission. “2307 had been vacant for 31 years. The woman had died in 1979, and the family settled the estate,” Donahue, 42, said. “Many years went by and it wasn’t inhabited, so it began to deteriorate very badly.” Donahue was able to work with the estate lawyers to sell the property to him. He then began the year-long restoration process that finished up in September 2011. “I purchased it at the end of 2010, in October. It took almost a year to renovate. The exterior basically had to

A South of South resident received an award from the Preservation Alliance of Greater Philadelphia for his historical restoration of a deteriorated property.


Lifestyles be rebuilt to match the historic look of the building so it was done under the supervision of the Historical Commission,” he said. “I worked with my architect and various contractors, some with a great deal of expertise in historical preservation issues, to undertake a full-scale renovation of the property. The team’s hard work paid off. Upon completion of the restoration, Donahue successfully sold the building to a family, remedied the blighted property from his street and, on May 8, received a Grand Jury Award from the Preservation Alliance of Greater Philadelphia. “The Preservation Alliance, each year, they present a Grand Jury Award to 10 worthy projects around the region for a preservation that took place that year,” Donahue said. “I was the only single-family house to be so honored; most other honorees were larger, institutional structures.” The luncheon to honor this year’s award winners, which had approximately 500 guests, Donahue said, was held in the Crystal Tea Room of the Wanamaker Building. “I’d like to continue doing it,” he said. “I really enjoy historic preservation work and I think particularly, with more developmental pressure in South Philadelphia,

hopefully whether it’s me or others, we take a look at some of the beautiful properties and try to preserve them.” FROM THE SUBURBS of Philadelphia, Donahue attended Princeton University before moving on to law school at the University of Pennsylvania. “I had lived in Center City since 1995, and in 2008, I purchased my current home,”

historic designation only applies to the building’s exterior, and owners can change the interior however they please. “It was just the look of it [that drew me to my home]. I originally saw my house for sale, walking around the neighborhood. It was the uniqueness of the block and the look of the structures,” he said. “Mine was a full-scale renovation — interior and exterior. It was a complete rebuild

‘The houses on South Broad, some of those old mansions when you are heading down to the stadiums, are really beautiful. Most of them are not historically protected.’ — Scott Donahue Donahue, who received his law degree in ’95, said. “I noticed a lot of change was coming and it made it more appealing. I think everyone knows Center City started to move out of its traditional boundaries in the early 2000s. A lot of people in Center City, including myself, began to see South Philadelphia as an important area.” Attracted to the house’s façade, and the ongoing improvements in the neighborhood, Donahue purchased his home and undertook a much-needed renovation.

“As a single mother, the most important thing is to be there for my son. It was hard for me to admit that, when it came to my weight, I might need someone supporting me. After years of struggling with the ups and downs of ineffective dieting, I made the decision to go to Jefferson. Their Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery team made me feel completely comfortable and have continued to be my biggest cheerleader, with monthly support groups that have helped me lose – and keep off – 115 pounds. It’s great to know that I am healthy enough to be there for my son. And that Jefferson will be there for me.”

of the exterior and interior.” Not having a particular interest in historical preservation at the time, Donahue’s own home renovation helped spark his interest and advocacy on the topic. “The houses on South Broad, some of those old mansions when you are heading down to the stadiums, are really beautiful. Most of them are not historically protected,” he said. “I hope people will be more mindful of the historical structures that have historic appeal.”

One way people can get involved is by nominating a structure, area or object for listing on the Philadelphia Registry, which, if approved, would ensure its historical preservation designation. “You can nominate a property for the registry of historic properties by contacting the Historic Commission. If, for example, you see a beautiful mansion on South Broad that has architectural merit or someone famous lived there or a famous event took place, you can nominate that building to be put on the registry,” he said. Donahue feels Philadelphians have a special privilege and therefore obligation to preserve the city’s great history through its architectural accomplishments. “I don’t think you are going to find this kind of interest in Phoenix, Ariz. We have a huge inventory of 18th- and 19th-century structures,” Donahue said. “There has been a lot of development in the last 10 years and renewed interest in city living. We need to make sure we are not building by knocking down a lot of our beautiful old buildings that require renovation. That’s what makes this city special — the architecture.” SPR

By Tom Cardella Columnist

Bloomberg’s latest ban

T

he mayor of New York City continues to wage his own war on obesity. New York plans to enact a ban on the sale of sugary drinks over 16 ounces. It is difficult to believe there was actually a time when Coca-Cola sold six-ounce bottles of Coke. Not so coincidentally, that was also a time when the American fanny actually fit in bus seat without overlapping on the person sitting next to you. You want to know when it really was the good old days? It was when someone didn’t feel cheated with a sixounce drink. Then Pepsi Cola came along. Pepsi found a sure way to the heart of the American consumer. Along came the 12-ounce bottle. As the Pepsi jingle went, “twice as much for a nickel too, Pepsi Cola is the drink for you.” Thereafter, drinks have grown until they are now super-sized at 32 ounces. Call me silly, but you could cross the Painted Desert on a 32-ounce soda. A camel could make it up and back and still not drink for a week. Show me a person who regularly drinks super-sized beverages and I’ll show you a person with a behind the size of Montana. If you are drinking super-sized drinks, your behind is actually on the way to blanketing Texas. You probably think of KFC as Lean Cuisine. I understand 7-Eleven is coming out with a slushy served in a plastic replica of a hot tub. They are calling it Sodacuzzi. I sympathize with Mayor Bloomberg. He knows that if things keep going the way they are, New York subways will only be able to hold two overweight people per car. Taxis will need to be the size of a Hummer. Instead of worrying about pickpockets and terrorists in Times Square, the main concern will be heart attacks (and how the hell do we get one of these folks on a stretcher?). The guy on “Man v. Food” will have to eat an entire McDonald’s to impress anyone. But a cautionary note: If government can limit the size of sugary drinks, what would prevent it from banning such drinks all together? Forget about denying Mayor Nutter a chance to make a few tax dollars

off their sale. What would prevent a customer from buying two 16-ounce drinks? For the record, I think Bloomberg’s ban is an example of the Nanny State run amok. But in some ways, the larger, more expensive drinks are being forced on the public when vending machines or even some stores don’t carry smaller-sized beverages. I spent many an afternoon staring at the vending machine in my office building where you could not purchase a drink smaller than 20 ounces. Yes, I know that you do not have to drink the whole bottle at once, but that’s what humans do (and the beverage companies know it). You take one sip, then another, and pretty soon, the 20-ounce bottle is empty and you’re as bloated as a Wall Street CEO’s salary. You take an office full if people drinking largesized sodas and you may have a spontaneous combustion problem on your hands. It used to be that you could get a 12-ounce soda in a vending machine in work and then it grew to 16 ounces, and now 20 ounces. I retired from that office more than a year and a half ago, so maybe you have to buy Mountain Dew in the magnum size these days. Some conservatives would argue that the market is just giving the public what it wants. But the vending machine example shows that sometimes business rigs the marketplace. Force a customer to buy a larger container of soda and you increase your profit margin (Maybe I should have taught economics at Chicago University). So where does that leave us? Using the vending machine example, I see nothing wrong with mandating that vendors also offer smaller-sized beverages. I also see nothing wrong with taxing sugary beverages. My disagreement with Mayor Nutter was that you have to sell the idea as much as on the basis of the need for taxes and not merely hide behind the smoke screen of merely fighting obesity. The concept of sin taxes on products such as tobacco and alcohol is already accepted by most Americans. Educational campaigns such as the one by the first lady have helped. In New York, it appears as if whatever Mayor Bloomberg personally decides is unhealthy is likely to be banned. I personally think a steady diet of Broadway musicals can cause a high sugar count. One thing is for certain, you better walk the walk if you’re going to promote a healthy lifestyle for Americans. This may be one issue on which Chris Christie is wise to keep silent.

everal weeks ago, as we were driving home from the Italian Market, I spotted Nomad Pizza, a very casual family-oriented place on the site of Horizons, the vegan restaurant that morphed into Vedge on Locust Street. I pulled out my notebook and added it to the restaurant review list. Pizza arrived in America from Naples in the early years after World War II. Evidently, GIs loved it. Someone was smart enough to open a pizza shop somewhere on our shores. Regular readers of my column know I love Santucci Square Pizza, the crisp pies from SliCE and the wild mushroom pie at Zavino Wine Bar Pizzeria. I looked forward to grading Nomad’s offering. If you are looking for a real family pizzeria, Nomad is for you. It is a bi-level spot with long tables and comfortable chairs. It reminded me of the dining hall at Camp Green Lane without the bug juice. Sandy, Edward and I were lucky to snag the last three seats downstairs as a large party just arrived and took over the upstairs. The menu is simple: Pizza, salad and dessert. Nomad has a license to sell wine and beer. Nothing goes better with pizza than an ice cold brew on a warm, late spring evening. Allagash White ($5.50) was on tap along with Yards Philadelphia Pale Ale ($5). A couple of a certain age was eating a spicy sopressata pie with knives and forks. Caesar salad ($10) was one of the best versions in town. It consisted of two jumbo hearts of fresh, crisp organic romaine, M a rc o n i / Pa c ke r Pa r k

halved and topped with homemade Caesar dressing; crisp flat, oven-baked croutons; whole anchovies; and shards of organic Parmesan. We divvied it up and polished it off with ease. Roasted root vegetable salad ($10) was an inspiring choice. Beet salads are everywhere. This version got high marks. It consisted of red beets and candy beets along with baby carrots, which were roasted in Nomad’s wood-burning oven. The roots sat upon a bed of pea greens, which were sautéed in garlic and finished in the perfect touch of balsamic reduction. Tangy bits of goat cheese enhanced by garlic and chives put this gem over the top. The crust on Nomad’s pizza has a puffy look to it. We sampled quattro formaggi ($15) and shiitake mushroom ($16). The first pie was prepared with imported mozzarella di bufala, grand cru, caciocavallo and organic Parmesan topped with sweet juicy caramelized onions, a hint of basil, garlic, sea salt and black pepper. The combination of flavors in this pie was tops with us. Next up was the mushroom pie also prepared with imported mozzarella di bufala, as well as Cherry Grove toma cheese, heady shiitake mushrooms, caramelized onions, organic garlic, drizzled with organic olive oil. We found parts of the bottom crust to be a bit soggy, but we liked the thin crust. Because you sit with strangers, you cannot help but speak with them. A couple next to us gave us a slice of Margherita pie for a slice of our mushroom pie. The homemade tomato sauce

was light and refreshing and did not overpower the cheese and basil. I should mention Nomad provides a pizza wheel to allow customers to divide up their pies. I’m not sure this is a good thing. Someone could mangle the dinner. A new couple joined our table. The woman forgot her glasses so her husband read the menu to her in a booming voice. She looked familiar and as soon as I heard her husband call her Betty, I knew it was Betty Kaplan who works in the demo kitchen at the Reading Terminal Market. The five of us had a good chat and she did not blow my cover. Tiramisu ($6) with three forks ended our delightful evening. Service was as good as it gets. The staff

ast month, chef George Sabatino of Stateside, 1536 E. Passyunk Ave., came to my kitchen and prepared a tasty salad with pan-seared jumbo headon prawns with baby arugula, pea shoots, mixed greens, sliced radishes and topped with pickled shallots. I have loved pickled anything ever since I first helped my grandmother prepare pickled herring and onions which we would store in large glass jars. I learned at an early age that it takes at least a week before the herring cooks in the herb and spice brine. Pickling is an easy way to preserve vegetables for year-round enjoyment. I often purchase pickled beets and a vegetable blend at the Amish stalls in the Reading Terminal Market. Pickled Okra and watermelon rind are American Southern staples while Italians reach for cauliflower, peppers and carrots for their special pickling blend laced with hot pepper flakes. Pickling is akin to putting up tomatoes, fruits and jams at summer’s end. You start with a sterile jar and proceed to make magic. If you are going to pickle dozens of treats, simply run the jars through the dishwasher. Quick: Say three times “Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.”

3/4 cup of sliced onion 1 large clove of garlic, smashed and peeled 3 tablespoons of kosher salt 5 half-pint canning jars with two-piece lids 2-1/4 cups of sugar 3/4 teaspoon of turmeric 3/4 teaspoon of celery seed 1 tablespoon of mustard seeds 1-1/2 cups of white vinegar

1) Plan your route: Know where you are going and be prepared to exit. Indecisive driving is a major cause of traffic problems. 2) Keep extra water in your vehicle: Just as you keep a winter driving kit in your vehicle, it is important to be prepared when driving during the summer months. Keep plenty of extra water, sunscreen and non-perishable snacks in your car in case you are stranded. 3) Be aware of truck blind spots: W hen sharing the road with large trucks, be aware of their blind spots. If you can't see the truck driver in his or her mirrors, then the truck driver can't see you. 4) Slow Down: W ith the extra highway congestion due to summer travel, speeding becomes even more dangerous. Allow plenty of space and reduce your speed. 5) W ait until parked to use cell phones: Driver inattentiveness is a major cause of traffic accidents. Even just two seconds of distraction time doubles the chances of an accident.

“1,2,3, hits” the senior-heavy Saints shouted before the third inning. Two base knocks and two free passes padded the lead to 4-0, and Jaep, despite issuing two bases on balls and yielding a single, kept his adversaries agitated by striking out two swingers in the third session, with Nardini nailing a would-be base stealer, too. The fourth segment featured two more runs for the local lumberjacks, with three hits, including a much-praised triple by sophomore first baseman and Second-Team All-Catholic Josh Ockimey. Jaep again faced the minimum in the bottom half, and Zolk began to shuffle his lineup to make sure as many charges as possible would be able to partake in the rout.

Injury-plagued for much of the year, senior hurler Joe Jaep earned the victory by dealing a two-hit shutout. He punched out four batters and shook off periodic control issues to gain his second straight City title game victory.

(never known to fail). O Most Beautiful flower of Mt. Carmel, fruitful Vine Splendor of Heaven, Blessed Mother of the Son of God, Immaculate Virgin, assist me in my necessity. O Star of the Sea, help me and show me here You are my Mother. O Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth, I humbly beseech You from the bottom of my heart to succor my necessity (Make Request). There are none that can withstand your power. O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to Thee (3 times). Holy Mary, I place this cause in your hands (3 times). Say this prayer for 3 consecutive days. Then you must publish it and it will be granted to you. V.A.
