A famed ship on the Delaware River received a reprieve with a titanic donation from a local philanthropist. By Joseph Myers r e v i e w s ta f f w r i t e r
oud cheers joined with calm breezes last Thursday to produce an evening that hundreds hope will revitalize the existence of a fallen icon. A crowd of about 500 filled the parking lot across from IKEA, 2206 S. Columbus Blvd., to learn that the SS United States Conservancy has received a $5.8 million donation from H.F. “Gerry” Lenfest, a philanthropist and media entrepreneur. His contribution will allow the group to purchase and refurbish the SS United States, once the inspirer of oceanic awe. A dozen members of The Orpheus Club

Jennifer Tini, top, co-produced “Standing Ovation,” a musical following teens competing in music video competition, along with choreographer Krystal Tini, left, and associate producer Monique Impagliazzo. S ta f f P h o t o b y G r e g B e z a n i s
or the past two years, Broad-Street-and Packer-Avenue sisters Jennifer and Krystal Tini along with Third-and-Tree-streets resident Monique Impagliazzo have been working overtime to make their dreams come true. What once was a vision and a story on the page is now becoming a reality as the theatrical film they worked tirelessly on, “Standing Ovation,” is set to be released nationwide July 16. Their journey first began when local talent agent Mary Anne Claro, of the 1500 block of West Passyunk Avenue, put Jennifer, 27, in touch with Diane Kirman, producer and owner of Kenilworth Films, the independent production house and brainchild behind the movie. Working with Kirman on various projects over the past decade, Claro also acts as agent for Impagliazzo, her former assistant, and Krystal, 26. In January 2008, right before Jennifer was scheduled to head back to Los Angeles, where the sisters relocated the summer before, Kirman called her to come in as an assistant for two weeks. Now, almost two-and-a-half years later with several positions under her belt — handling everything from craft services to accounting and finally earning the title of co-producer — Jennifer lives for the adventure. “I always wanted to be behind the camera. I never wanted to be in front of it and I love this job now,” the former Neumann-Goretti high school teacher said. Shortly after signing on, the La Salle University graduate See STANDING OVATION page 9

Wake-up call To the Editor: On June 24, the Democratic House passed a bill (something called the Disclose Act) that by wicked tactics prevents hundreds of corporate, small business, citizen groups and nonprofit organizations from revealing information to the American people so they will hear and see for the most part only what the Democratic Party wants the people to hear. They have done this in stark violation of the First Amendment. Your Democratic representatives have voted to take away the Constitutional rights to freedom of expression from Americans. They have voted to allow you to hear only what they want you to hear. The local Republican who voted for the bill was Rep. Mike Castle of Delaware who voted for the Cap and Trade Bill, which taxes carbon dioxide — one of the gases we breathe in and produce breathing out. Castle wants to be he next senator from Delaware. Many Americans have been coming out of their long slumber regarding their governments. Delaware wake up. Alfred Essex South Philadelphia
Questioning authority To the Editor: It is truly one huge damned shame what Americans are condemned to live with and are given no real choice as to how and who is to represent and serve us in our most important and crucial political and civil needs. Both the Democrats and Republican parties make it an absolute certainty that no one else can ever wrestle any kind of control from them. The elimination to the American voters of newer, better, younger and much wiser candidates seeking to take their never ending and mostly unproductive tenure will go on unceasingly while they sit so comfortable and confidently in office. For instance, the electoral college consistently squeezes out prospective candidates for public office, who belong to offshoot or spin-off independent, libertarian or any other legitimate, in accordance with regulations, political organization who could re-light and bring back the faded American dream
of democracy that onced served as a beacon and light to the world. These are not the ideas or ideals that democracy and freedom were built on. Those are being discarded. We should not have a group that was elected to make laws that are made to serve them in their quest for no other reason but to secure their position long after they have outlived their usefulness and productivity, and languish unendingly in office much to the detriment of the citizens they were meant to serve. Regardless of their affiliation with any other party, give us back our right as a democracy and free people to choose who we want to serve us, instead of elected officials deciding who should serve us — that’s what dictators have done which ultimately strips away democracy and freedom. Give us back our American rights to choose for ourselves freely. If you think that politicians don’t depend on the lethargy, unconcern and involvement in our political process, you have better guess again because it is that lack that has given us what we currently have and will not change until we are involved.

Leadership failures To the Editor: It was always our belief and understanding that those we elected into office are there to represent us, not themselves; until now. That policy is dead. It’s gone. Our new breed of leadership has dismantled it completely. What was once an American city has been changed to fit the breed of leadership we all must adjust to. Our city could be called fail safe, which our leadership has described to us and the rest of our nation. Our leadership has decreed this an open and fail safe city. No longer will our crime-fighting forces venture into the world of illegal criminal activities or disclosure. By the order of our unnatural breed of leadership, our city has transformed into a fail safe environment for those who are here illegally. Our leader calls this the new American tradition.

manda Hansen was spending the night at a friend’s house when she encountered a silent killer. The 16 year old was unaware that the boiler in the basement where they slept was leaking carbon monoxide. Slumber’s peacefulness — and the odorless, poisonous gas — filled the room. Sadly, Amanda never regained consciousness. Her parents somehow persevered through the grief of losing a child and began working with their New York politicians to give meaning to their tragedy. They knew if the room where Amanda slept had a carbon monoxide detector, she might still be alive.
Advocating for the requirement of such devices in all houses in their home state of New York became their mission. Their tactics included collecting signatures from neighbors and drumming up support from other officials. A few months ago, their wish came true, as a bill mandating carbon monoxide detectors in all New York homes was signed into law. And it appears the couple won’t rest until such devices make their way into every U.S. home — for good reason. They recently heard of a parent who installed a detector prior to hosting a sleepover. The device actually went off that night, but everyone escaped safely. Adding to the story’s poignancy is the fact that this occurred on the same day as Amanda’s birthday. “As soon as we got that phone call and hung up, we knew this is what we need to do to keep Amanda’s name alive,” Amanda’s father Ken told The Buffalo News. “That’s what we need to do with the rest of our lives.” SPR

Burglary goes awry
A woman and her children were shoved in their bathroom while her boyfriend was forced from the Grays Ferry home and shot Monday. By Amanda L. Snyder R e v i e w S ta f f W r i t e r
28-year-old woman returned home with her kids to find two unknown men — one with a silver semi-automatic pistol and one with a knife — in her bedroom at 1:30 a.m. Monday on the 1900 block of South 28th Street, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The duo demanded money and jewelry, but the woman denied having any, so the men coerced her to call her 30-year-old boyfriend, Tolliver said. Upon his arrival, the woman and her children were forced in the bathroom while the men duct taped the boyfriend and pushed him inside his girlfriend’s white 2010 Nissan Maxima, in which the three drove from the residence. The woman and her children were unharmed. At about 6 a.m. the 30-year-old arrived at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in the Maxima with a gunshot wound to the back of his right leg although police are unsure how he escaped and arrived at the hospital, Tolliver said. The vehicle was sent for processing. The perpetrator with the gun was described as black, 5-foot-7 and wearing a black ski mask while the man with the knife was described as black, 6-foot-2 to 6-foot-4 and wearing a white T-shirt that he used to cover his face as well. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013.
Teen tiff A teen was shot at least four times in West Passyunk by two older teens, who previously accused him of burglarizing their home, Monday night. The 15-year-old was walking to the store with his 14-year-old brother when two neighborhood teens, who he has had a number of previous encounters with, moved toward him at 11:30 p.m. on the 1900 block of Hoffman Street, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. One of the teens called him and shot at him at least four times with a black handgun hitting the teen once in his left thigh, Tolliver said. The brothers ran to a nearby family member’s home where they called the police. The victim was transported to
Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia where he was treated and released. Even though he does not know their names, he told police that he could identify them as he had a recent altercation with one of the boys who accused him of burglarizing his home on June 13, Tolliver said. No arrests have been made in that burglary. The offender that shot the victim was described as black with a dark complexion, age 18 or 19, 5-foot-11 to 6-foot-1, thin, short hair and wearing white shorts. His accomplice is known as “Vito” and was described as possibly Hispanic, age 17 to 19. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013.
Teen murdered in Point Breeze A teen was killed about a block from his home in Point Breeze Friday. Police responded to a radio call of a shooting on the 2300 block of Watkins Street at 1:41 a.m. where they found 19year-old Raquaan Westbrook, of the 2200 block of Moore Street, lying on the street with numerous gunshot wounds to his body, Officer Tanya Little of the Police Public Affairs Unit said. He was transported to the HUP and pronounced dead 23 minutes later. Police had no motive or suspects as of press time. To report information, call Homicide Division 215-686-3334.
Trying to unarm an ofﬁcer An officer attempted to arrest a man who was believed to have obstructed traffic in Queen Village, but more charges were tacked on when he allegedly assaulted and tried to take the officer’s weapon early Monday. The officer was conducting traffic at Third and South streets at about 1:35 a.m. when Sidney Spearman, 21, of the 6400 block of Anderson Street in East Mount Airy, allegedly stood in the intersection preventing traffic from turning left on Third, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The officer asked him to move along, but Spearman ignored the request. Instead, he allegedly grabbed the officer’s bike,
Police Report pushed the officer and told him, “that is why cops get shot,” Tolliver said. Spearman allegedly reached into his waistband, so the officer believed he had a weapon and pushed his bike forward forcing the man to fall against a wall, Tolliver said. Police tried to restrain him and find out if he had a weapon, but Spearman allegedly forcibly yanked on the officer’s firearm that was secured in his belt at least five times. After requesting backup, the officer wrestled Spearman to the ground. Spearman allegedly continued to struggle and even attempted to punch the officer before he was taken into custody and charged with obstructing the highway, aggravated assault, simple assault, resisting arrest, disarming a law enforcement officer, robbery, attempted theft — unlawful taking — and recklessly endangering another person. Spearman pled guilty to theft in 2008 and was on probation for one year, according to court documents. As a result of the incident, the officer suffered minor scraps to his arms and legs, Tolliver said.

The 21-year-old was walking with her aunt and two friends on the 3000 block of Mifflin Street when she heard gunshots coming from behind, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. She felt pain in the heel of her left foot, so she and the others found cover behind a home on the 1800 block of Corlies Street and the victim collapsed. She did not see the shooter. The woman was transported to HUP in stable condition, Tolliver said. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013.

Reporting car accidents The police department has instituted a new method to report minor auto accidents that does not involve waiting for police to respond to the scene. Those involved in fender benders should continue to dial 911 as the operators will help determine whether or not police need to be dispatched to the scene. However, minor accidents that do not involve injuries or damage to property other than the vehicle, typically will not need police to arrive at the scene. Prior to departing, the drivers should exchange driver and vehicle information, so they can report the accident to the proper police district. For accidents in South Philly, the 17th District, 20th and Federal streets, (215686-3170) spans west of Broad Street to the Schuylkill River from Lombard to Moore or New Hope Street, the 1st District, 24th and Wolf streets, (215-6863010) spans west of Broad south of Moore including the entire Navy Yard and the 3rd District spans east of Broad to the Delaware River from Lombard to I-95 (215686-3030).

A man attempted to hold up a South Street convenience store on the evening of the Fourth of July until an unknown customer walked in and chased the man away. Employees of Xpress Food Mart, 1642 South St., called police at 8:03 p.m. Sunday after a man walked up to the counter, pointed to a black semi-automatic gun in his waistband and demanded money, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The employees handed over $603 when an unknown customer entered the store in the midst of the attempted heist and tried to restrain the man. The fight continued outside the store, but the robber escaped on a mountain bike pedaling south on 17th Street. Evidence was recovered from the scene, but the unknown customer left prior to police arrival and has not been located, Tolliver said. The robber was described as black, heavy set and wearing a white polo shirt with green stripes. He fled on a green and black Huffy bicycle. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013.
Ford or Chevy — pulled up next to him on the 1900 block of South Ninth Street, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The rear window was rolled down and a man leaned out pointing a long, black military-style rifle at him before chuckling as the vehicle went west on McKean Street. The suspect was described as Asian, age 23 to 26, with black hair, a thin, medium build and wearing a white T-shirt. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013.

After launching basketball clinics locally, a nonprofit broadens its scope to encourage more girls in becoming active. By Amanda L. Snyder R e v i e w S ta f f W r i t e r
eth Devine is expanding her reach to young girls and looking beyond just the game of basketball. The April launch of the Philly Girls Got Game clinic was so successful that four more were scheduled for this month — the three remaining ones are taking place July 14, 21 and 28 at Neumann-Goretti, 1736 S. 10th St. Devine also is looking at the bigger picture as she unveiled plans for her Philly Girls in Motion program geared towards encouraging young girls to become active and make healthy choices. “It might be someone who has never exercised a day in their life,” Devine said. “We want to get kids moving.” With the help of Councilman-at-Large Jim Kenney and the Department of Recreation, the program will get under way in September at two recreations centers — John M. Perzel Community Center in Mayfair and Dorothy Emanuel Recreation Center in East Mount Airy. “This particular program is not for the high-end athlete,” Kenney, of 11th and Tasker streets, said. “These are for girls that need to get up and about and away from the TV.” “It might start with a walk around the block,” Devine added. Devine and Kenney along with other volunteers involved in the program gathered at The Palm at The Bellevue, 200 S. Broad St., June 28 for a two-hour happy hour event to help raise funds for its programs. Guests included area college basketball coaches and former 76ers general manager and president, Billy King, who was mixing drinks behind the bar. He and his wife are committed to stay involved in the organization, he said. “If we start young, get them exercising it’s more preventative,” King said noting being active could ward off diseases such as diabetes later in life. Through Devine’s network, those willing to donate their time to the organization like King have continued to grow. “Everyone has something to teach and we’re all for it because we want to be a volunteer-driven organization,” she said. EARLIER THIS YEAR, Devine launched the pilot program of Philly Girls in Motion at a Catholic school on the Main Line. Teens including 18-year-old Stephanie Smedile,
A new program that hopes to spread citywide in the future will focus on helping young girls maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. S ta f f P h o t o b y G r e g B e z a n i s
who graduated from Merion Mercy Academy in Merion Station last month, gathered twice a week after school to learn about wellness and a variety of exercises from January through May. “All the girls that did it loved it,” she said. “It gave me motivation to start doing the things we do together on my own.” Now Smedile’s friends come to her for advice and she can take what she has learned to Drexel University in the fall where she will be freshman psychology major. “The simple choices you make everyday can be shifted,” the Wallingford resident said. Although Devine found success with the program at Merion, she didn’t want to target schools in well-off suburbs and teens like Smedile, who played tennis in the fall at her alma mater. “As we were delivering it, we thought, ‘this is a great program.’ The girls that were there were all in. They were there everyday [the group met] … This is great. Let’s do it where the opportunities aren’t.” So now the nonprofit will look to start two programs and expand it citywide eventually with more sites potentially popping up in January with a possible South Philly location.
“When we grow, that will probably be one of the first places we go,” Devine said of South Philly. Although she is quick to add it is not a weight-loss program, it may result in reduced pounds as a result of being active. “We want to teach kids how to feel and how to move, so it’s not a battle,” she said. The program, which is geared for ages 9 to 16 and has a $50 per year membership fee, will provide nutritious lessons prior to the day’s activity teaching the girls about the best choices for what to put into their bodies. The fitness aspect will consist of Philly Girls Run, a running club with a goal of planning and participating in a neighborhood 5K, Philly Girls Tri, a mentorship that will invoke an interest in running and training for small triathlons, Philly Girls Fitness, a weekly class that may include yoga, Zumba, Pilates, kickboxing and boot camp training, as well as the Philly Girls Got Game basketball clinic. “That is one of the more important things we’ve done in South Philly — ever,” Kenney said of the initial clinic. The program consisted of women’s basketball coaches and players from the area’s six universities mentoring about 150 local
girls. And about 40 are signed up for each of the July clinics thus far with spots still available, Devine said. Denise Dillon, Drexel’s women’s basketball head coach said, the April clinic not only affected the local girls, but also her and her players. We’ve run a lot of clinics,” Dillon, who will run the July 21 clinic as well, said. “That was probably the most memorable that I’ve been involved in.” Another component of Philly Girls in Motion is a once-a-month family session where Christa Smedile, a registered dietician and certified health counselor, who helped Devine with the pilot program at her younger sister’s school, will show the whole family how to cook and shop healthy. “The hardest thing we’re going to have to overcome is food marketing and cost because unhealthy food is cheaper,” she said. Most importantly, this program will turn its interest to a subset that typically does not garner attention, Kenney said. “At this point, let’s concentrate on young woman because that’s what lacks focus,” he said.

STANDING OVATION continued from page 1 brought in her sister’s reel of the NeumannGoretti Saints cheerleading squad to show writer and director Stewart Raffill. Before moving out west, Krystal helped organize routines as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers dance squad. She also honed her acting skills locally while instructing the high school troop. Loving what he saw, Raffill flew her in to choreograph a piece of one of the songs. Krystal stayed on and not only singlehandedly choreographed the movie’s routines, but designed the wardrobes as well. “The vision in Krystal’s head of what [the actors] should wear is now our movie poster,” Impagliazzo, who joined the team before production started in the summer of ’08, said. “It all came to life.” Every facet of the creative process was an educational experience for the three graduates of St. Maria Goretti High School, 1736 S. 10th St. “After working a 12- or 15-hour day, I’d have to go back to wardrobe, look for what my scenes were for the next day and pack all the wardrobe and accessories myself every single night,” Krystal said. “I never did wardrobe before in my life so I was
just learning along the way.” With an extensive amount of responsibility on their shoulders and without a handbook of written guidelines, an innate passion and confidence fueled their ambitions. “I think the three of us, we just always knew not that we were different, but that we wanted something different out of life and in general,” Impagliazzo, who shares associate producer credit along with her mentor Claro, said. “We actually get up and do it and it’s not easy either, it takes a lot of courage and moving from your gut.” IT WAS NOT uncommon for the trio to bring on friends and fellow residents such as Marisa Campagna, of Smedley and Hartranft streets, for hair and Maria Forte for makeup. The diverse crew was not only loyal and extremely dependable but talented and down to earth. “In hiring South Philly girls, they added something to the project they never would have had before,” Jennifer said. “It’s great that Diane trusted us enough to allow us to bring in a group of South Philly girls that she didn’t know.” Compiling the movie’s soundtrack alongside Raffill, Krystal recommended local rapper and writer Mikey P of DaCav5, who penned three of the 20 original songs. continued on next page

SS UNITED STATES continued from page 1 of Philadelphia began the night with the singing of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” with the First Troop Philadelphia City Cavalry presenting the colors of the United States flag. Waving mini flags, attendees, many donning “Dont Give Up the Ship” shirts, greeted the announcement by Conservancy Board President Susan Gibbs with extended applause. “For almost15 years, she’s been waiting patiently,” Gibbs, the granddaughter of William Francis Gibbs, the ship’s architect, said of the vessel, which has experienced dereliction and adulation since its last voyage in 1969. “Eulogies were being composed but no more,” Gibbs told the crowd. She then addressed the gift from Lenfest, his second sizeable offering to the Washington-based group. Last July, he endowed the group’s cause with $300,000. With the larger amount, Gibbs and her colleagues can purchase the ship from Norwegian Cruise Line/Genting Hong Kong, its owner since 2003. The line had received a $5.9 million bid from a scrapper, but instead chose to negotiate on the 990-foot ship with the Conservancy for $3 million. “We are now the first ones in line to buy the ship and the only ones in line,” Gibbs said, easily drawing the night’s loudest ovation. She introduced Mayor Michael Nutter, whose time in office has witnessed the most conserted efforts to give the ship new life. “This ship is a national treasure, a national landmark. We need to pledge not to let any tragedy befall this ship. It is part of our national history,” Nutter said. In her introduction of Lenfest, Gibbs noted that in his youth, he had a “marine room,” where he would occupy himself with all things aquatic, especially models. “I am sure he never would have imagined having a toy like this,” she said. With chants of “Gerry, Gerry, Gerry” greeting him, Lenfest, in a hushed yet confident voice, said, “She’s worth keeping; she’s worth saving,” a comment that spawned more shouts. The Florida-born Lenfest received the Conservancy’s National Flagship Champion Award, and he and Nutter received framed portraits of the ship from photographer Rita DeVecchis. The three-hour event included a musical interlude with performances by Jimmy and the Parrots, whose “Symbol of America” honors the SS United States. Soft pretzels, hot dogs and pizza aided the maintenance of the celebratory vibe. The crowd included many out-of-staters, including Ocean City, N.J. resident Joe

Once the sun had signed off for the evening, Kelly joined everyone in watching the lighting of the ship’s running lights, radar mast, bridge and funnels. Excitement swelled as the ship brightened, its luminous look proving irresistible for many whose extended curbside inspection caused them to miss moments of “SS United States: Lady in Waiting,” a 57-minute documentary that includes interviews of crew members and passengers. Though not made in Philadelphia, the ship has become an obsession of many area residents who are yearning for it to remain in the city once renovation is complete. New York City is another possible location. “New York has enough already. Leave it here,” Peter Richardson, of the 300 block of Fernon Street, said following the video. “This ship is done waiting.

Pennsport native Jason Mulgrew turned the trials and tribulations of a childhood spent by Second Street into a successful blog and a book — and he’s taking no prisoners. By Jess Fuerst Review Contributor
14 SOUTH PHILLY REVIEW I july 8, 2010

“I’ll bring friends home and I’m like, ‘Hey, what’s up?’ to some 12-year-old, and my friend will say, ‘Who’s that?’ and I’ll say, ‘A cousin.’ Then, two blocks later, the same thing happens with some 15-year-old.” —Jason Mulgrew, on growing up in South Philly
prah has her list, and the New York Times has one, as well. But anyone from South Philly has just one book to read this summer. “The one chapter that I wrote about [The Mummers], it’s actually how my parents met. She was 17 years old. We are from Second Street, so, you know, the second half of the parade, and she sees this guy drunk, this Mummer dancing around. And he’s bleeding,” Jason Mulgrew, of Third and Ritner streets, said. “So she took a picture. Eight years later, she is going through pictures with my dad … and it was him; He had been in a bar fight and had been stabbed and he was too drunk to care. “True South Philly Second Street romance.” And so began the tumultuous life of the Mulgrew family, which is exactly what Jason, the eldest, chronicles in his first book, “Everything is Wrong with Me: A memoir of an American childhood gone, well, wrong.” The 12-chapter book beginning with “A Break, a beginning” and ending with the epilogue “Hooker Hunting,” is endearing, embarrassing and downright funny. “[The chapters] have their narrative arcs, but they are more like vignettes starting from how my parents met up until me being in junior high,” Mulgrew, who currently resides in New York City, said. “It just seemed like natural at that time. We didn’t want to get into high school ’cause that’s a whole other set of neuroses and insecurities.” Mulgrew’s cast of characters include his parents, younger brother, Dennis, and younger sister, Megan — though the siblings play a smaller role in the written version of the author’s formative years than they would like,
Lifestyles Mulgrew said. The last major player in this ensemble is, of course, South Philly. “I think it couldn’t have been better, growing up there,” Mulgrew, whose extended family remains in Pennsport, said. “I think you get this unique world view. My dad was one of 10 and my mom was one of six, and we all grew up in a mile-and-a-half radius. “I’ll bring friends home and I’m like, ‘Hey, what’s up?’ to some 12-year-old, and my friend will say, ‘Who’s that?’ and I’ll say, ‘a cousin.’ Then, two blocks later, the same thing happens with some 15-year-old.” Starting a blog in February 2004, when the word blog was still a funny sounding abstract term, Mulgrew began musing about his childhood and posted his family stories as a creative outlet. Response to the blog was overwhelmingly positive and led to Mulgrew being named one of People Magazine’s 50 Hottest Bachelors in ’05. He also was approached to turn his postings into a book, but was determined not to fall into the same formula of his peers. “There is no overlap,” Mulgrew said of the blog and the book. “That was really ’cause, at that time, when I was first approached, [other bloggers] were just copying and pasting.” The best part of becoming an author has been the chance to connect to his audience.
Mulgrew, who considered stand-up comedy before realizing it was “scary” and reverting to the blog, has been able to read and meet-up with readers from all over. And find out that his experience may be unique, but they are definitely not singular. “That’s been the best part. As much as it’s a compliment when people are like, ‘I grew up in South Philly’ or ‘My parents are from South Philly and they always told me the stories and you nailed it,’ it’s the best when [people not from the area] are like, ‘Wow, I want to come to the Mummer’s Parade!’ “I brought a girlfriend home and she was from a farm in the Pacific Northwest. And she was like, ‘This is like a movie set, this can’t be real.’” With part disparagement and part nostalgia Mulgrew mocks his roots because they are what defines him. “No matter where I am I will be in that parade. At 6 a.m. on New Year’s Day my alarm is going off and I’m putting that makeup on,” the Froggy Carr member said. “It’s just such an engrained part of who I am, so unique to South Philly. I don’t care, I’ll be there.” MULGREW ATTENDED OUR Lady of Mount Carmel, 2329 S. Third St., before heading north to attend St. Joe’s Prep for high
school. Leaving the state to attend Boston College, where he studied history, Mulgrew had aspirations other than becoming a blogger/writer. “I wanted to be a lawyer and now I work for lawyers,” Mulgrew, who has done marketing for a New York City law firm for many years, said. “They took us [in middle school] to a law firm and it was the nicest office I had ever seen, and they had this hoagie spread for us, and I was like, ‘I can get behind this!’” Though Mulgrew now works for law professionals, he intends on staying on his own side of the matter. Maintaining his blog with weekly posts, the fan base continues to grow. “I’ve done 1.6 million words in six years; That’s a lot of words,” Mulgrew said of a recent count of his activity on www.jasonmulgrew.com. “I think [the first print run] was 20,000. They’re selling well; I don’t know the numbers. And they like that I can do a lot, ’cause I have the blog, I have a builtin — I use the world lightly — ‘fan base.’” Though the book was started four years ago, Mulgrew jokes that the tome was penned in 16 days — but the estimate is not too far off, he maintains. Secluding himself on The Shore for a week at a time, the stories poured out of him as fast as fingers could put the words down.
MORE SERVICES...ONE SERVICES...ONE APPOINTMENT...
“I can keep churning this out forever, there is no shortage of stories,” Mulgrew said. The first book’s idealist was trimmed from 35 chapters to 12, leaving plenty of room for a sequel, which is something Mulgrew already has in the works. His family, however, may still be stuck on the first edition. “My parents, god bless them, I love them, are not huge readers. I’m still not sure my dad has even read the book,” Mulgrew said of the $13.99 read released in March. The family has been more than good sports, however, as Mulgrew airs family stories on the Web and in print. In the wake of the book release, Mulgrew is riding the wave. Traveling all over to meet fans and promote, the author is still interested in bringing the Mulgrew family history to TV, while the release of the second half of his childhood is imminent. “I like doing the readings and meeting the people,” Mulgrew said. “When I was doing a reading on the North Jersey Shore, tons of people came for drinks afterwards and we were out until 1 in the morning; People that may have e-mailed me and then I can meet them and they can say, ‘Hey, I love your book and let me buy you a beer,’ – which is awesome.” SPR Comment at news/lifestyles.

20 SOUTH PHILLY REVIEW I july 8, 2010
By Tom Cardella Columnist
he water sparkles in the pool under rays of the afternoon sun. The swim club is alive with the happy shouts of kids. Adults swim laps to keep fit. Others sip on iced tea and read a book or chat with their neighbor. It is so unlike the summers of my youth, he thinks. He wasn’t allowed to go swimming in the public pool nearby that he and his friends called “the swimmies.” There were only infrequent trips to Roosevelt Park to dunk oneself in the lake. There was no air conditioning to cool off, only an inadequate window fan. His parents worried incessantly about he and his sister drowning or getting polio. There was no polio vaccine. Jonas Salk himself was probably still just a kid himself trying to shake the heat. What he remembered most about those hot Philadelphia summers was the pungent odor of the city, the odor of the horses pulling the wagons of vendors selling everything from fruit to laundry bleach, the odor of the manure wafting up from the trolley tracks and the occasional dead animal lying in the street for who knew how long until they came and took it away. The heat was no more intense than this day when he lounged poolside, but life was so much harsher without the conveniences we take for granted today. He had been only dimly aware of what was happening in the world around him back then, other than what his father brought up in conversation at the dinner table. He remembered we were supposed to be afraid the Russians would blow us all to pieces. We believed there were spies everywhere, even in the highest levels of government. We were stuck in Korea and didn’t know how to get out. Gen. Douglas MacArthur wanted to nuke China and went public. Truman fired him, but MacArthur seemed to have won the hearts of the people, at least in his home. Today was different, but not so different. President Obama escaped Truman’s fate because he had Gen. David Petreus to replace Gen. Stanley McChrystal. In this case, it is Petreus who is the American hero. He worries. Petreus is not Superman. It is his strategy of counterinsurgency that has so far failed in Afghanistan. He will tweak the policy, but not essentially change it. Afghanistan is not Iraq, and besides, it seems a little premature to declare victory in Iraq before we see what will happen when most of America’s troops are gone. We don’t need another premature mission accomplished banner. And what is it about
Afghanistan that gives us hope of good outcome? Its historic hatred of foreign invaders? Is it the corruption of Hamid Karzai that fuels our hope? No, it is Gen. Petreus that is the only thing that gives us hope, and that is too much a burden for any mortal to carry... He doesn’t really know much about Elena Kagan. He hopes she will, at the very least, be a capable replacement for Justice John Stevens. She seems like a nice lady with a good sense of humor and the intelligence to survive the congressional hearings and the grumpiness of Sen. Arlen Specter. What he has read is that Kagan’s grandparents once owned a butter and egg store on South Seventh Street. He remembers his mother sending him on errands to the store, which was all white tile and he believed that he could actually smell the creamery butter and eggs? He loved that store. Good luck, Elena Kagan. Win one for Gittleman’s and South Seventh Street... He is disturbed people still buy into the old myth that you can run the federal government as you do your household budget. When things get tough, you rein in your own budget, but when the economy is tanking and people are getting laid off in droves, the government has to spend its way out of it. You need the economy to grow and put folks back to work. It’s not that the stimulus didn’t work, it wasn’t big enough. The stimulus kept us from going over a cliff, avoid a depression and gave us a slight economic upturn. You can’t reduce the deficit if the economy goes under, and all that pain you’ve inflicted on ordinary working people will be for naught. Nobody is listening... We are already getting a glimpse of our future, he thinks. Congress fails to extend unemployment benefits, a relatively inexpensive way to ease the hardships on the jobless. Republicans are opposed to the “goodies” in the war-funding bill. The so-called “goodies” are things like $10 billion to help local school districts avoid laying off teachers; $500 million to hire more border patrol agents and $18 billion to be split between nuclear and renewable energy. Goodies or necessities?... There is a wondrously giant tree in Girard Park, the kind that as a kid you could imagine being part of a magic forest. As a result of a recent storm, the big tree now lays on its side, its roots ruthlessly ripped out of the ground. The imperious tree once looked down upon the stately neighborhood, for who knows how many years, and is now toppled in a moment of nature’s wrath. It’s a reminder that even the most powerful among us are but a speck in the eye of history to be brushed aside. There is a sadness today in his favorite little park. He turns back to the pool, as if for solace, and the laughing children. SPR Comment at www.southphillyreview.com/opinion/cardella.
‘Airbender’ lacks wings
Aang (Noah Ringer) the young successor in an ancient line of Avatars prepares for battle as the fates of the Earth, Water and Air nations rests on his shoulders.
By R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer
’ve been saying for years that M. Night Shyamalan, who over the course of a decade went from being the next Hitchcock to a latter-day Ed Wood, should tackle material not born from his own twilight-zone of a mind. I’ve envisioned the gifted, Philly-raised auteur applying his irrefutable stylistic skills to a story uncontaminated by outlandish, swollen-headed, Shyamalanian DNA. Finally given the opportunity, Shyamalan couldn’t have botched things up more enormously than he does with “The Last Airbender,” his galumphing, dumbfoundingly preposterous adaptation of the popular Nickelodeon anime series. What is an Airbender? Oh, who cares? Shyamalan, in a script overflowing with convolution, takes great pains to explain it, pummeling viewers with enough loony expository speeches to send them hurtling toward the exits. Borderline sadistic in his technique, the filmmaker rubs your face in the movie’s innumerable absurdities, zooming in obnoxiously close on the face of Aang (Noah Ringer), the all-powerful Avatar (not that one), as he raves about Dragon Spirits, Air Nomads, Flying Lemur Bats and The Fire Nation with bugeyed, double-glazed hamminess. Apart from the best efforts of a few talented stars of Indian descent (including Dev Patel of “Slumdog Millionaire”), the acting is god-awful. Playing the cheese to Ringer’s ham is 15-year-old Nicola Peltz, who, poor thing, drives you into a state of secondhand embarrassment with her dreadfully misguided performance as the water-bending Katara. Jackson Rathbone of “Twilight” fame is barely better as
Katara’s big bro, Sokka. The young actors speak as if they just finished Level 1 of Rosetta Stone English, and then attempt to wrap their monosyllabic tongues around a bunch of fantastical, nonsensical hooey. Even the potentially grand visuals are compromised, as this flick is another casualty of the 3-D-retrofit disease, wherein the third dimension is added after the fact. Exotic eye candy and nifty water effects are left looking murky, and there’s no noticeable visual enhancement beyond some puffed-up subtitles. In every sense, “Airbender” is a bust. It’s Shyamalan’s worst film since ... well, since his last one.
The Last Airbender PG One reel out of four Now playing in area theaters
Recommended Rental A Single Man R Now available Colin Firth gives the performance of his career in “A Single Man,” a tragic, stylish drama that marks the directorial debut of fashion designer Tom Ford. Playing a professor bent on suicide following the death of his lover, Firth is matched by the great Julianne Moore who plays his character’s longtime best friend.

While the cake is baking, make the crumb topping. In a large mixing bowl, combine the melted butter followed by the flour, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon. The crumbs should be moist. While the cake is still soft, but somewhat firm, sprinkle the crumb mixture evenly over the cake. Continue to bake for 15 to 20 minutes until it is golden brown. Cool the cake and sprinkle sugar on top of it. This cake also freezes well.

yellow turning to white. Its should have been trimmed better. The menu lists daily specials. Pot roast ($18) was the plat du jour. I love a good pot roast and always use a chuck roast. I settled for the pork chop ($19), which consisted of two thick ovals of boneless pork a bit overcooked. My dinner came with Swiss chard. The amount was so tiny, I needed a microscope to see it. Still it was delicious. Pickled ramps, which are in season, and bit of bacon were included. Christopher opted for herbed risotto ($17) which was toothsome yet creamy. The mix of sautéed wild mushrooms and garlic made this one of the finest risottos Christopher and I have ever tasted. It also may be ordered as an appetizer ($8).
I sipped a glass of Pinot Noir ($10), which married well with the pork. Cunningham purchases all his ingredients from local farms. The names are listed at the bottom of the menu. Two-and-a-half tips of the toque to Tweed. SPR

cials in a monotone voice without asking us if we wanted a drink. There was no eye contact whatsoever and he kept pointing to items on my menu with his pen. Christopher told him we wanted to order drinks and discuss the menu. Tweed does not stock Bombay Sapphire gin. I settled for a Beefeater martini ($9) which was fine. The menu is a mix of modern American bistro fare. An assistant waiter brought us a focaccia-like bread and one tiny triangle of butter with a butter knife. The bread was OK but something more rustic would have been better. Our waiter described the seafood salsa fredo ($9) as a ceviche. The word ceviche should have been on the menu. The bits of cool seafood were splendidly enhanced by sweet red onion and fragrant cilantro. Roasted beet salads are everywhere. Executive chef David Cunningham, who worked in New York and the now-shuttered Bookbinder’s, roasted beets to perfection and sliced these beauties thick. Tangy goat cheese, mint and frisee were included. The light vinaigrette was prepared with orange juice, which was a welcome change from lemon juice or vinegar. The sliceberg ($10) was a twist on the wedge, a steak house staple. A chunk of iceberg lettuce with crumbled blue cheese and crisp bits of bacon was topped with a homemade Russian dressing that was so delicious. As I ate my way to the lettuce heart, it was a bit on the tired side, pale

wo images come to mind when I think of tweed. Gorgeous expensive wool and cashmere jackets made by the world renowned Turnbull & Asser in London that are worn by Prince Charles and his clan along with movie stars and company moguls. History students may recall the infamous William M. “Boss” Tweed of Tammany Hall who stole millions and died in jail. “Boss” Tweed figures prominently in Martin Scorsese’s film “Gangs of New York.” I don’t know why the owners of Tweed christened this new restaurant with this name. The interior is high-tech modern done up in shades of eggplant and olive oil. A flat-screen TV hangs over the bar where a few patrons were enjoying drinks.

T h e To q u e S t o p s H e r e
By Phyllis Stein-Novack Food Columnist
uly 14 is the 221st anniversary of Bastille Day, a bloody day in French history which ultimately led to the French Revolution. America and France have been firm friends through history. The French so admired Benjamin Franklin that he is still referred to as Dr. Franklin rather than Ben or Benjamin. The Marquis de Lafayette held Gen. George Washington in such high esteem, he came to the colonies and helped us win the American Revolution. In 1886, the people of France gave us a beautiful gift. The Statue of Liberty still stands in New York harbor welcoming visitors from far-away shores and welcoming back Americans from an ocean liner crossing. During the 2008 Pennsylvania Primary, NBC anchor Brian Williams said he was so impressed with our city, he called Philadelphia “the Paris of the United States.” He is surely correct. Our city is filled with French influence. The Benjamin Franklin Parkway echoes the Champs Elysées. The Free Library and Family Court buildings are replicas of the Place de la Concorde. City Hall is built in the French Empire style and is patterned after the Louvre. The Park Hyatt at the Bellev-
ue, which opened in 1904, was also built in the French Empire style. There also is chef Georges Perrier, Philadelphia’s most famous French-born chef. Lyon’s loss was surely our gain when Perrier came here more than 40 years ago. Perrier is a mentor. He has guided the careers of many chefs in his restaurants. He is the first to share his recipes with anyone who wishes them. It is no secret that French cuisine is my favorite. I could dine on the regional fare every day. People sometimes forget that its a country of regional cuisine. The dishes you enjoy in Paris are far different from those you savor in Provence. The wines are also regional. I’m a Burgundy woman. Always have been. I love Pinot Noir, Cotes du Rhone and Champagne, which is made from mostly red grapes, especially Pinot Noir. In honor of Bastille Day, let’s feast on French fare. The entrée, whether it is beef, fish or fowl, is up to you. The recipes are from Georges Perrier’s “Le Bec-Fin Recipes.”
■ Compote de Fenouil ■ (Braised Fennel) Ingredients: 3 3 3 1
large fennel bulbs tablespoons of unsalted butter tablespoons of sugar cup of chicken stock
Juice of 1 lemon Salt and white pepper, to taste
Directions: Trim off a slice from the bottom portion of each bulb so it lays flat. Peel off and discard any tough outer layers. Place each bulb on its flat bottom. Thinly slice the fennel. You can use a mandoline. In a large sauté pan, melt the butter over high heat. Add the fennel and sauté until tender when pieced with a fork. Add the sugar, stock and lemon juice. Reduce the heat to a simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 20 minutes. Season to taste with the salt and pepper. Serves eight.
■ Mousse de Carottes ■ (Carrot Mousse) Ingredients:
3 pounds of large carrots, peeled and coarsely chopped 2-1/2 cups of heavy cream 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter, softened 1/4 cup of honey Salt and white pepper, to taste
Directions: Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the carrots and cook over medium heat until tender, about five minutes.
Drain, then place on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 30 minutes to dry. Heat the heavy cream to scalding. Remove the carrots from the oven and purée them in a food processor until very smooth. With the machine running, add the scalded heavy cream, butter and honey. Season to taste with the salt and pepper. Serves four.
■ Edives Braisees ■ (Braised Belgian Endive) Ingredients: 8 heads of Belgian endive, discard any limp outer leaves and cut out cores Salt and white pepper, to taste 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
Directions: Sprinkle each endive with the salt and pepper. In a large sauté pan over medium heat, melt the butter and oil, add the endive and cook until evenly browned on all sides. Cover the pan and reduce the heat to the lowest possible setting. Cook the endive in their own juices for 1 hour, shaking the pan occasionally. Serves eight.

Your new best friend SPOCK Spock is ready for you to beam him up. . . right into your home!
Spock is a five-year-old pit bull mix who was turned in to the shelter by a family who could not afford his medical bills. Spock had a benign lump on his leg, which was removed, along with one of his toes! But now he’s happy, healthy, and ready to find his new family. Spock has lived with children in his previous home, and has also lived with other dogs. So he would be happy to go home with kids or other pets as long as he’s given the opportunity to meet them here at the shelter before he goes home with them. Spock is also housebroken. So if you are looking for a pet with a low energy level, who will fit into your home seamlessly, Spock may be your guy! So take him home and let him ‘Live Long and Prosper’ with you!

Happy Birthday to my Beautiful Daughter Trina You are a rare and treasured gift. A young life has passed from our sight... but never from our hearts. Trina, your dearest thoughts and memories are treasured in my heart. We will always remember your smiling, laughing, talking, sharing, caring and loving you brought in our lives. You are at home now, free at peace in the presence of God. Much love and you will truly be missed by:
The family, extended family, church, workmates and friends.
Phyllis Floczak 4/18/42 -6/17/10
They say memories are golden well maybe that is true. We never wanted memories, We only wanted you. A million times We needed you, a million times We cried. If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died. In life We loved you dearly, In death We love you still. In Our hearts you hold a place no one could ever fill. If tears could build a stairway and heartache make a lane, We'd walk the path to heaven and bring you back again. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same. The Floczak Family would like to express our thanks to family, friends, neighbors and especially the nurses at the Methodist Hospital who came to honor my wife and our mom and comfort us in this time of deep sorrow. -Jim Sr, Rosie Power, Chrissy Nardone, Phyllis Lucia, and Jim Jr

cinnati-based school, he averaged career highs of 11.8 points and 8.7 rebounds per game. His statistics landed him a thirdteam all-Atlantic 10 selection. His June treks also included stops in Miami and Charlotte. The forward/center showcased his skills for the Chicago Bulls, New Orleans Hornets, Oklahoma City Thunder and Washington Wizards. On draft night, however, neither Green nor Love heard his name called. In fact, of the 60 draftees, only 16 were seniors, and none went off the board at Madison Square Garden until the Minnesota Timberwolves took Clemson University’s Trevor Booker with the 23rd pick. On June 26, the Celtics added Green to their summer roster, allowing the 6-foot-5 player at least five more chances to dish and defend. Four days later, the 76ers announced that Love would be filling the post with his 6-foot-9 frame in their five contests.
Play began Monday, with Green’s team falling to the Thunder, 87-82. The guard played 12 minutes, tallied five points. Love’s team fared better, earning an 84-74 win over the Nets. In six minutes, Love scored two points. Green and Love renewed acquaintances Tuesday, with the Sixers blitzing the Celtics, 86-69. The former player played 15 minutes, scoring three points yet committing four turnovers. The latter logged 11 minutes, accumulated eight points and a rebound. Wednesday’s games ended after press time. The NBA has yet to release the schedule for the 2010-’11 season. However, if Green and Love impress this summer, the undrafted free agents will play in the same division and have a quartet of attempts to top each other.

SOUTh PHILLY REVIEW I july 8, 2010
s college opponents, Rodney Green and Jason Love squared off four times in four seasons, with Love’s Xavier University Musketeers topping Green’s La Salle University Explorers each time. Now it’s all about making it as a pro, either in the NBA or overseas. After being passed over in last month’s draft, both athletes are hoping to catch the attention of one of the scouts or general managers in attendance at this week’s AirTran Airways Pro Summer League taking place in Orlando, Fla. Eight teams are competing, including Green’s Boston Celtics and Love’s hometown Sixers. Though their high school and collegiate backgrounds differ, the area products hope their summer sojourn will lead to autumn acceptance. Green, a Southwest Philadelphia native and Prep Charter, 1928 Point Breeze Ave. alumnus, completed a distinguished career for the Explorers in March. Though his teams managed only one winning season in his four years, the point guard achieved individual success. This past season, he averaged career highs of 18.5 points, 5.1 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game, nabbing second team allAtlantic 10 honors. The 22-year-old athlete concluded his career as the ninth-best scorer in La Salle’s meritorious history. His draft preparation included June workouts for the Charlotte Bobcats, Miami Heat and Milwaukee Bucks, as well as two group sessions in conjunction with the New Jersey Nets. Love, 22, an Abington Friends star and a resident of 22nd and Tasker streets, tasted more collegiate success than Green. His Musketeers qualified for the NCAA Tournament all four years, amassing eight wins in 12 games.

NoveNas prayer to the holy spirit
Holy Spirit, You who make me see everything and who shows me the way to reach my ideals, You who give me the divine gift to forgive and forget the wrong that is done to me and You, who are in all the instances of my life with me, I, in this short dialogue want to thank you for everything and affirm once more that I never want to be separated from you no matter how great the material desires may be. I want to be with you and my loved ones in your perpetual glory. AMEN. Thank You for your love towards me and my loved ones. Pray this prayer three consecutive days straight without asking for your wish. After the third day your wish will be granted. Promise to publish your dialogue as soon as your favor has been granted.

(Over 1900 years old) Oh, St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt.. before the throne of God, I place in you all my interest and desires. Oh St. Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession, and obtain for me from your Divine Son all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, Our Lord, so that having engaged here below your heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of Fathers. Oh, St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms. I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Press Him in my name and kiss His fine head for me, and ask Him to return the kiss when I draw my dying breath. St. Joseph, patron of departing souls, pray for me amen. With Ecclesiastical Approval Say for nine days anythng you may desire. It has never been known to fail. This prayer was found in the fiftieth year of our Lord Jesus Christ... Make it known everywhere

(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 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. K.G.
