Among their many challenges, area small business owners cite dealing with the City’s trash fee increase as the foulest. By Joseph Myers r e v i e w s ta f f w r i t e r

arie Ciminera overflows with frustration, much like the sidewalk and curb of her business do with trash. The owner of Card and Gift Gallery, 2132 S. Broad St., Ciminera has operated her small business for 33 years, but the discouraged proprietor soon will have to part with her tract, a victim of the City’s aggressive plan to reduce its staggering budget deficit. She and her fellow vendors along the 2100 block of South Broad Street already have endured what they see as excessively fishy taxes and See TRASH page 12

The Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (PSPCA)

Word on the Street

Letters

Where is your favorite place to take a summer vacation and why?

Senior Got Talent Too

“At the beach in Atlantic City. My wife likes to take the grandchildren to the beach, not the casinos.” Wesley Tilghman, 18th and Morris streets

“Cancun, Mexico because it’s really nice. They have a club I like called Paradise and it has everything in it.” Santessa Jones, South Beechwood Street

“Vegas because of the excitement of it all, the places to shop and the resort where we stay is good.” Raymond Parker, South Beechwood Street

To the Editor: I think I have what is a great promotional idea for the Review and a service to the public that I think could prove to be dynamic, productive and not require a large amount of energy. “America’s Got Talent” has neglected a huge pool of undiscovered talent of senior citizens. How about the Review sponsoring such a show? Auditions can be held at various senior centers and only top talent would be picked to star on a TV show. What a wonderful public service feat for the Review to give seniors a chance to shine and be out of the boring doldrums of inactivity. A real public service that can put the Review front and center and make the competition stand in awe. Frank Cavallaro South Philadelphia

“My favorite of all I would have to say is Ocean City because it’s like going back to the ’50’s and being a kid again.” Alex Demarco, 12th and Ritner streets

Right of way To the Editor: A primary reason for having cyclists ride with trafc is to reduce the effective speed of impact in accidents with cars — with trafc equals softer impact (“Sharing the road,” July 22). Another reason is that road signs are placed for the direction of car trafc. Regarding general safety, I think much needs to be done by cyclists and motorists. Both often operate with disregard to all others. Pedestrians have the right of way above all, yet they (including me and my baby daughter) are routinely denied that basic right by all types of vehicles. It even appears that pedestrians have been denied this for so long that they no longer take the right, either for fear or conditioning. At stop signs, in my car I often have to practically badger pedestrians to cross the street when it’s clearly their right. Until everyone develops a greater respect and awareness for others on the road and sidewalk, no amount of policy changes will make it safer for anyone. Andrew Nelson, pedestrian, cyclist, motorist South Philadelphia

Search for parking To the Editor: Builder’s rip people off in South Philadelphia when they build small, tight garages right off the pavement (“Island of the privledged,” July 15). That’s not the buyer’s fault. We are the subject to their cutting corners. If the residents of the “island of privilege” were to get their vehicles off the pavement, that would clog the streets more. Therby, hurting the rest of the neighborhood. I happen to live directly across the street from the “island of privilege.” It does not bother me nor do I think it bothers anyone else in our neighborhood that they have to look for spaces. There is plenty of pavement in the city to nd a place for kids to play. As for the handicapped, there are eight ramps per intersection. They can choose which side of the street to go. I commend our neighbors for parking creatively from 10 p.m. to 8 a.m. to make it work for all of us. We deserve better than your criticism. Please leave the “island of privilege” alone. Janice Ciarrochi South Philadelphia

Keeping cool, staying safe To the Editor: With the arrival of summer, our thoughts often turn to beating the heat in the city. While photos of children laughing and running through the spray of an open re hydrant might conjure pleasant thoughts of urban traditions, unauthorized use of re hydrants can result in tragic headlines. Hydrant abuse is a serious problem that must be discouraged. It can lead to dangerous road conditions, result in injury, death and property damage or loss due to hampered reghting efforts. It also can disrupt water service for schools, hospitals, businesses and homes in the immediate area. While the summer heat can be a very serious issue in its own right, illegally opening re hydrants is not an

appropriate or legal way to cool off. There are numerous ways to safely stay cool this summer — going for a swim in one of the city’s 70 pools or two spray parks, drinking plenty of water or visiting a mall or movie theater with air conditioning. In the end, children splashing away in a pool or participating in a reading program at an air-conditioned library make for better news than a tragedy wrought by hydrant abuse.

hen bands break up, sometimes rock scribes or fans don’t get it. But when Creed splintered in 2004, I felt as if I completely understood. During a 1999 interview with Scott Stapp, Creed’s vocalist droned on forever about how he sang “With Arms Wide Open� while his wife was giving birth to their son, Jagger. No wonder his ex divorced this self-important blowhard. It was hardly shocking that his bandmates left Stapp and formed Alter Bridge. But Creed has reformed. Apparently there is some inexplicable nostalgia for

angst without a cause rock, which covers Creed’s place in the music universe. Creed is touring behind “Full Circle,� its first album in eight years. The title of the disc is as predictable as the band’s songs. Expect a healthy dose of fresh material and an array of the band’s ’90s hits: “My Own Prison,� “Higher� and “My Sacrifice,� which still get plenty of play on frat-rock radio. The band owes its career to Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam. Creed is the epitome of post-grunge. Wonder what these guys would be doing if the Seattle scene didn’t happen. The overly earnest Stapp, who worships at the temple of Eddie Vedder is a pretty serious dude onstage. But on one can be as serious as the group’s nonironic material. When you go to the show, remember, it’s not a reunion. According to Stapp, it’s a rebirth. That’s deep, man. SPR

No snoozing

A Jersey resident was injured by a man who tried to rob him early Sunday. By Amanda L. Snyder R e v i e w S ta f f W r i t e r

A

24-year-old was snoozing on the hood of his girlfriend’s car at 2 a.m. outside Club Onyx, 2908 S. Columbus Blvd., when a man used the opportunity to search his pockets. When his sister realized what was occurring, she yelled at the man who was trying to rob her sibling, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The screaming awoke her brother and as he sat up, the offender pulled a gun from his waistband, fired a shot that struck the man’s neck and exited near his shoulder blade. The man, who fled in a white Chrysler 300 with 24-inch rims and empty-handed, was described as black with a dark complexion, age 23 to 25, 6 foot, 250 pounds. Meanwhile the 24-year-old was driven to Columbus Boulevard and Oregon Avenue where police were called, Tolliver said. The man was transported to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in stable condition. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013.

Double robbery A man who robbed a local bank Friday is believed to have struck again three days later in the Northeast. The lead teller at Wachovia Bank, 2227 S. Broad St., greeted her customer at 3:41 p.m. and he handed her a note on white paper that read, “give me the money. … Do not make a scene and no one will get hurt,” Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. He FBI surveillance video placed a newspaper on the counter and the teller was unsure if there was a weapon inside, so she moved swiftly, as requested by the man, grabbing money from the top drawer without counting it. This alarmed another teller, who pressed

the robbery button. The man fled out of the bank toward Broad Street with about $775 in small bills in a money envelope, Tolliver said. He was described as white, age 20 to early 30s, 5-foot-5, thin to medium build, with a thin beard, tattoos on both forearms — one of which appeared to be a large dragon or fish — and wearing a dark T-shirt, tan and white plaid capris, white mid-calf socks, dark sneakers, a light blue Adidas baseball cap and sunglasses. The same man, who is considered armed and dangerous, is believed to have struck again at a Northeast Philadelphia Citizens Bank, 10650 Bustleton Ave., 12:20 p.m. Monday, according to FBI spokesman J.J. Klaver. In this robbery, the man received a dye pack, so he may have red stains on his hands and clothing. To report information, call the FBI at 215-418-4000 or South Detectives at 215-686-3013.

Missing crime scene Police could not locate evidence on a Grays Ferry street where a teen told police he was shot. A 17-year-old was shot in the right foot Sunday on the 3100 block of Dickinson Street, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. When police met the teen at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania at 1:02 a.m., the teen said as he was crossing Patton Street on Dickinson, he heard a loud bang and ran. He realized he was shot when he reached Napa Street, so he flagged down a passing car to take him to the hospital where he was admitted in stable condition. However, the driver or the car has not been located nor has a crime scene on Dickinson, Tolliver said. Police did not have a description of the shooter. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013.

Binded and burglarized Two teens, who tied up and robbed a Pennsport family, were arrested as they left the apartment building. A 12-year-old boy opened the door to his family’s apartment on the 2000 block of South Fourth Street at 9:45 a.m. Sun-


Police Report day, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. Isaiah Hall, 19, of West Philly is believed to have mentioned something about coupons and pulled a handgun from a bag. He and Devin Torres, 19, of the Northeast, allegedly entered the home and Hall is believed to have said, “if you cooperate, we will not shoot you” to the boy and his 8-year-old brother before tying them up in the living room. A 56-year-old woman walked downstairs and was allegedly greeted by Hall’s gun, Tolliver said. As Torres allegedly tried to tape her mouth shut, he struck her in the head and arms. She screamed causing three more family members to enter the room. Items including a black wallet with identification and a black HP Pavilion laptop were stolen, Tolliver said. Surveillance video showed the duo leaving and returning to the building, Tolliver said. SWAT was notified, but the pair exited the building prior to its arrival, so police arrested them behind the building. Both were charged with multiple counts of burglary, robbery, theft, aggravated assault, unlawful restraint, false imprisonment, firearm violations and related offenses. The stolen items were recovered inside the building.

Late night holdup

A man was robbed of his cell shortly after two teens asked him for the time.

Out of jail The ex-head of Citizens’ Alliance for Better Neighborhoods was released from prison earlier this month. Citizens’ Alliance’s former executive director Ruth Arnao, who was convicted of 45 counts of fraud, obstruction of justice and filing a false tax return March 16, 2009, was released from prison July 14, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons website. She was sentenced to one year and one day July 21, ’09 and reported to federal prison along with Fumo Aug. 31, ’09. The prosecution configured Arnao’s sentencing to encompass 108 to 135 months or about nine to 11 years, but the court determined 70 to 87 months, or five to seven years. Both above Fumo’s sentence of 55 months. and is expected to help Fumo pay the more than $676,000 in restitution for Citizens Alliance. She also will pay a $45,000 fine to the court and a $4,500 special assessment. The U.S. District Attoney’s Office filed an appeal on the sentences earlier this month. Former Sen. Vince Fumo is currently serving time at Federal Correctional Institution Ashland in Kentucky until Aug. 26, 2013, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons website.

1946 S. COLUMBUS BLVD., SOUTH PHILLY

SOUTh PHILLY REVIEW I july 29, 2010

A man was mugged while walking home with a companion from a Queen Village club early Sunday. The 29-year-old and a 27-year-old woman were walking home from Fluid Nightclub, 613 S. Fourth St., at 2:30 a.m. when a man approached them on the 600 block of South Leithgow Street, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. He pointed a black 9mm Glock at them and demanded everything they had, Tolliver said. The offender hit the man behind his left ear with the firearm and asked again. The man handed over $180, a cell phone, identification and two credit cards. The suspect fled south on Leithgow toward Bainbridge Street, Tolliver said. He was described as black with a light complexion and brown eyes, age 30 to 32, 5-foot-10 to 6 foot, stocky, and wearing a black, long-sleeve T-shirt, black pants and a black bandana over his face. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013.

The pair asked a 24-year-old for the time as he was walking north on South 12th Street near Moore Street around 9:27 p.m. Sunday, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. He continued to walk, but heard footsteps behind him as one of the teens stepped in front of him, pointed a gun and demanded his phone. He handed it over and the boys walked away south on 12th. The 24-year-old walked to Moore where he asked an unknown person to call 911, Tolliver said. The adolescents were described as black, age 16, 5-foot-6. 100 to 150 pounds and had short hair. The gunman was wearing a dark striped T-shirt while his accomplice was walking with a dirt bike. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013.

ensory overload should be in full effect Sunday at the fifth annual DooWop Car Show and Street Festival. From noon until 5 p.m., the East Passyunk Avenue Business Improvement District will present a celebration of cars, trucks and motorcycles and complement it with a visual extravaganza of live music, a craft show and the wares from scores of vendors. Likely to draw thousands, the event will look to continue what the district’s Executive Director Renee Gilinger called “a wonderful success story for the area.” The festivities will stretch between McKean and Dickinson streets, just east of Broad Street. For those desiring visual stimulation, the Northeast Muscle Car Club is putting more than 100 muscle, antique, classic, custom and show cars, trucks and motorcycles on display. The vehicular treasures will line a four-block stretch of the Avenue between McKean and Tasker streets and will compete for 60 trophies. Specialized trophies will include honors for Best Stock, Best Modified, Best Engine, Best Paint, Best Low Rider, Best Street Rod, Best ’50s Custom, EPABID Pick and Best of Show. A $15 fee applies for all participating cars, which must arrive by 2 p.m. to be eligible for judging. “The cars come the day of the event, and they fit by angle parking mostly,” Gilinger said. More ocular opportunities will come from a group of belly dancers who will perform a set from 1:40 to 2 p.m. at the parking

A local district reaches a milestone in its yearly homage to cars, crafts and cuisine.

lot between Morris and Tasker streets. Between glances at the wheeled wonders and hyper hips, onlookers can indulge any auditory cravings with live music by Chad & Willie and Impact, plus the skills of two DJs. “We will have the musicians located so that people will be able to hear music no matter where they are,” Gilinger, who has been with the district since December 2008, said. WITH NEARLY 200 businesses, the district has enough offerings, especially nutritional ones, to keep everyone sated. Gilinger expects about half of the establishments to be open. Roughly15 places will be serving food and summertime beverages. Pizza, stromboli, smoked barbecue brisket, a full sushi menu, vegetarian treats and sausage and pepper sandwiches will be among the delights for famished folks. The Bang! Boom! CRAFT! Show will inspire artistic mind-sets between Tasker and Dickinson streets at the Tasker Street Fountain. Face painting and sand art options are available too, as will car memorabilia and giveaways from oldies station WOGL. “We are really looking to get people to walk around and have our businesses gain exposure. Exposure is the key to seeing that this area keeps up its great run,” Gilinger, who will be experiencing her second festival, said of the territory, which has become somewhat of “a hipper destination” since the festival’s ’06 inception. “People come from as far

as two hours away for this event. We have to make it worthwhile.” Pat Ciambrello, who is a member of the Northeast Muscle Car Club, is largely responsible for the festival’s existence. “The whole thing started some years back,” he said. A friend contacted him with the desire to have a few cars come down and sit in front of his restaurant, the now-defunct Roselina’s. “After we shared our love for old cars, we decided on a big car show instead,” Ciambrello said. The event has had various dates, but, according to Gilinger, it now will be the premier Sunday in August. “It has grown to be a big event. Renee has made it so, and this year should be our best ever,” Ciambrello, who makes direct contact with the vendors, said. “We have

more vendors signed up this year than in past years.” As for the inspiration behind the “doowop” portion of the festival’s name, Ciambrello has the answer. “The name came through our love for the ’50s and the fact that we had doo-wop singers singing in the street that first year. The name stuck.” With a large crowd expected, Ciambrello, like Gilinger, wants people to have a good time. “For me, I get a kick out of people who come up to me telling me what a good time they have had at the show and festival,” he said. The district has begun to consider ways to monitor how financially successful the day is to its livelihood, but Gilinger already knows its importance to the participants. “We help these businesses year-round to find grant money to improve their look and their bottom line. In addition to that, we like to help them to have fun,” she said. Last year’s event had rain, and the forecast for Sunday, calls for scattered storms. Gilinger would love not to have to use the Aug. 8 rain date. “I am hoping for sunny skies,” she said. “It would be wonderful for such a great event to have cooperative weather.” SPR Contact Staff Writer Joseph Myers at jmyers@ southphillyreview.com or ext. 124.

RESCUE continued from page 1 ing each floor, Liz Williamson, PSPCA’s director of public relations, said. While she would not give details on the history of the case, residents have said that the PSPCA and police have visited the home in the past, but the owners would not allow entry without a warrant. “A search warrant is not able to be obtained without probable cause and up until that point we did not have probable cause to present in order to obtain that warrant,” Williamson said. The PSPCA has declined to comment on the specifics for the warrant being issued. According to police records, 3rd District police were called seven times to investigate the home in the past four years including for people screaming and dogs barking. The cause of death for the two dogs has not yet been determined and Williamson could not divulge too much on the medical condition of the remaining dogs except that they were living in unsanitary conditions and there were issues with parasites. She also could not confirm the owners’ names or if both would be charged, but that charges are pending and should be

filed shortly, she said. Aside from removing animal feces, its owners are expected to repair the interior and the roof as well as professionally exterminate the building to rid the “infestation by insects, rodents, vermin or other pests,” according to L&I’s Code Enforcement Unit. One resident of Seventh and Earp streets, who did not wish to be named, said his cousins grew up with Richard and he knew the couple his whole life. “She’s my friend,” he said. “She don’t hurt nobody. She loves animals. She don’t hurt nobody. She’s a very, very, very nice person.” WEEKS LATER, CURTAINS still cover most of the windows that kept neighbors in the dark about what was going on inside the home that allegedly emitted a strong stench that stretched not only across the 700 block of Earp, but also to neighboring blocks, according to residents. “Oh it did,” Diane Scafidi, of Seventh and Earp streets, said. “I just used to just walk out in the street [and smell it]. I knew it was coming from that house. You heard them barking and yelling.” While Scafidi had only resided in her current home for the past two months, neighbors filled in the details of the ongo-

ing battle that had stretched back to 2006, she said. She was home during the raid and saw the dogs that looked healthy being taken from the home. “Yeah, it was sad,” she said. “I couldn’t even watch. I watched a few then I came in.” While Nancy Trachtenberg couldn’t smell if from her home on Eight and Wharton streets, she was aware of the problem through word of mouth. “I don’t think anyone had any idea the seriousness of the disaster,” she said as she and her 7-year-old daughter, Benna, walked cairn terrier, Snacks, in the neighborhood last week. “It’s horrible, it’s disgusting, it’s abuse to animals and it’s sad.” But not everyone on the block knew of the stench while some previously had a whiff, but weren’t sure of its origin. “Sometimes in the night it didn’t smell good, but I don’t know what happened,” one man said. A woman, who lived on the block for more than 60 years, minded her own business, she said. “I thought people were throwing trash in the empty lot,” she said of the smell. Another resident had just moved there the week of the raid. “We just saw them going in there and stuff,” she said. “We didn’t know what was

going on until neighbors told us.” Many residents declined to give their name or even comment on the situation. Intimidation may have played a role. According to one resident, some neighbors had feces smeared on their doors and vehicles after confronting the owners of 739 Earp. Others had bricks thrown through their windows. “They never came out,” the resident, who did not wish to be named said of the home’s inhabitants. “The only way you would encounter them is if you would knock on the door and ask, ‘what’s going on?’” But neighbors strayed away from that option to avoid possible consequences. Instead, neighbors and friends from nearby blocks that learned of the situation banded together calling every imaginable city agency and organization that may be able to offer any type of assistance. That included the PSPCA, 3rd District Police, Philadelphia Corp. for Aging, District Attorney’s Office, Women’s Humane Society, PETA, L&I, Streets Department, Department of Human Services, PAWS and 1st District Councilman Frank DiCicco’s office, among others. The resident who lives on a nearby street has had to avoid opening his windows since moving in a year ago, but was not aware of

News continued from previous page the problem before buying the home. “When we came to buy the house, as luck would have it, the wind wasn’t blowing our way,” he said. Since then, he has been working on the issue with area residents. He even phoned the PSPCA the weekend prior to the warrant in addition to making a call to 911 two days before the warrant was issued when he heard a lot of barking with unusual clarity, but he doesn’t believe his calls did the trick. “Someone supposedly made a false report that they eyewitinessed something and that enabled it to get done,” he said. In the past, phone calls fell short when they filed complaints with the city’s 311, police and PSPCA officers that they hadn’t actually seen anything — only heard and smelled things leading them to believe there was a dog fighting operation, hoarding or even dead bodies in the home. However, that was not enough for a warrant. “The law needs to change,” he said. “If a house reeks for blocks that should be enough for L&I to enter,” the resident said. Although the dogs have been removed, the situation is far from fixed, the resident said. But now the residents need to ensure

that the city doesn’t drop the ball when it comes to finishing the task, which he believes will include demolishing the home. “My concern is that the city will not be organized enough,” he said. Meanwhile, the 85 rescued Chihuahuas rescued are being treated at various locations and will soon be ready for a new home, Williamson said. Several of the Chihuahuas have gone to rescue groups,” she said. “In some cases to continue their medical treatment and in some cases to continue socializing them and giving them a chance to be outside of a shelter environment. … Some of the animals that are still here {PSPCA, 350 E. Erie Ave.} are undergoing some medical treatment and also many of the dogs are under-socialized so they are a little skittish, a little shy and frightened.” The PSPCA is asking anyone interested in providing any of these dogs with a new home to call 215-462-6304, extension 251. “We’re trying to talk to people who are interested to give their information and to talk about the situation the dogs are in and see if there is a good match,” Williamson said.

News

TRASH continued from page 1 fees, but the City’s $300 fee for their trash removal is rancid enough to jeopardize their livelihoods. “The City has taxed small businesses beyond belief,” Ciminera, of the 1700 block of Hartranft Street, said. “Big conglomerates have taken over, and I’m left to wonder where I’m going to find all this money.” The monetary total includes what she and her colleagues pay for occupancy tax, mercantile tax, revenue tax, business privilege tax and the trash fee. Though Ciminera and her two closest neighbors have multiple gripes, the trash situation has aroused the most ire. “The City allows us to put out three bags of trash each week, but people add their bags at night and put us over the limit,” Ciminera said. “They often treat the curb as if it’s a third-world country they should be making to look worse.” Ciminera, who revealed that she even has to pay a tax on the scale she uses to weigh chocolate, rents two apartments above her establishment, but nobody seems interested. “Nobody wants to shop on Broad Street anymore,” Dolores DiMarco, who runs Cinema II Cosmetics, 2128 S. Broad St., said. “The City has made such an effort to improve Center City, but what about South Philadelphia?” DiMarco, a 14-year occupant of the block, noted her revenue has dropped $50,000 since last July. Ciminera’s profits have dwindled similarly, and those of Lien Huynh, owner of Hollywood Nails, 2122 S. Broad St., have declined too, though Huynh could not provide an exact amount. What has spawned such misery? Is trash the sole culprit? “No,” Tom Abaldo, a South Jersey resident who helps out in Ciminera’s store, said, “but it’s a metaphor for the area. This was once such a beautiful place.” THOUGH CIMINERA AND DiMarco seem primed to charge only Mayor Michael Nutter and City Council with guilt, Abaldo has tried to defend the first-term mayor. “He has good intentions but he has so much corruption to fight,” he said. “I don’t care about his intentions,” Ciminera said. “This increased tax is ridiculous. It doesn’t make any sense.” It will make cents for the City, though. In May, Nutter noted that the budget deficit could reach as high as $150 million in the 2010-’11 fiscal year. To counter the spawling debt, City Council had sought to implement increased taxes and fees. A 9.9 percent bump in property taxes over the next two years headlines the heightened taxes, while the $300 trash fee, a 100 percent increase over what Ciminera et al

have paid as small business owners, leads the pumped up fees. Ciminera, DiMarco and Huynh will contribute $900 of the estimated $7 million the City expects to collect. “I have paid $150 for the first half of the year, and I expect a bill will come soon for the rest,” Ciminera said. City Council had discussed a $500 fee for small business trash removal, but the $300 amount passed by a 10-6 vote May 13. With an average lease on the 2100 block of South Broad Street of around $1,350 per month and a surplus of taxes, the merchants on Ciminera’s block are contributing to the City’s lifeline, but they do not feel as if the City is reciprocating. “Why doesn’t the mayor come down here to see what’s going on? I just expected to have more after 33 years,” Ciminera, who might flock to New Jersey to try another venture, said. Another dubious element of the owners’ recent woes concerns parking. Though the City granted Ciminera a parking sticker for her Packer Park residence, it has denied her the same luxury for the 2100 block of South Rosewood Street, so she must leave

her business every two hours to find another spot for her car. “That’s no way to have to run a business,” she said. “I even have to tell my customers to wait outside so I can find a space to avoid a ticket. I have lost business because people cannot find a space to park. Those who do can stay only a little bit because the PPA [Philadelphia Parking Authority] can’t wait to give them a ticket if they are even a minute past their limit.” Ciminera, who works with over 50 distributors to give her customers variety, is “definitely leaving.” “This is easily my worst year. I’m putting out way more than I am putting in. A few weeks ago, trashmen didn’t come on the normal day, and by the time they did, I had nine bags by my curb. The City will probably issue me a fine,” she said. For small businesses, which customarily employ between one and 50 people and have relatively low revenue figures, any fee or fine can cripple their future. DiMarco’s business, which, among its services, sells designer wigs to cancer patients, soon may go under. “I’m not giving up yet, but I feel as if I

don’t want to be bothered anymore. I’ve made plenty of sacrifices, and I have my priorities in order. When is the City going to do the same?” DiMarco said. “These officials are making this area like the slums. Where is the economic development here?” “I’m not in danger of closing, but I can’t relax either,” Huynh said. “These taxes are a mess. I used to think the business privilege tax was the worst,” Ciminera said of the tax the City bases on a business’s gross receipts and net income. “This trash fee is by far the worst,” she added, noting that the City did not involve her or her colleagues in any discussions about raising the fee. According to the Streets Department, letters went out on June 14, stating the City expects payment of the fee by Aug. 15. A spokeswoman declined to comment on the merchants’ dissatisfaction with the larger fee. “I received a letter to let me know, and I’m stunned. It’s ridiculous,” Ciminera said.

“I

t’s my grandmother, she’s very strong, and my mother, they pretty much taught me from the beginning,” Chris Scarduzio, the man behind the kitchens at restaurants Mia, Brasserie Perrier and Table 31, said. “I would come home from school, you know you had a lunch break, and I’d be coming home and when I’d go back I’d have flour on my shoes from making the pasta.” Scarduzio, whose family settled at Seventh and Fitzwater streets after emigrating from the Abruzzo region in Italy, grew up eating and learning about the art of good food. His “training” has been put to good use and Philadelphians can pull up a chair at any one of his fine-dining establishments from here to Atlantic City. Locals are in for a special treat this weekend when Scarduzio will be serving up a number of culinary treats alongside celebrity chefs such as George Perrier, Guy Fieri and Paula Deen at the second annual AC Food and Wine Festival, which is taking place today through Sunday at various venues. “I’ll be there all weekend, cooking and having a great time,” Scarduzio, whose featured dish for the event is a smoked mozzarella ravioli with chanterelle mushrooms and arugula, said. “It’s a great event. There is tons of talent and tons of networking. It’s great for the city, great for Philadelphia, because these other cities have these huge events, but you aren’t going to go to Chicago, this is the closest one you can get.” The event, sponsored by Harrah’s Entertainment, Condé Nast Traveler, the Food Network and others, features a la carte tickets to wine continued on page 16

LIFESTYLES continued from page 14 tastings, food shows, demonstrations and other food-themed fun for anywhere from $30 to $1,000. “Well I’m going to be working in the booth. I’ll be at The Pool [at Harrah’s] at the Condé Nast event,” Scarduzio, who is participating in events Friday through Sunday, said. “At the restaurant [Mia], throughout the whole weekend, we have a tasting menu. “I’m looking forward to seeing a lot of people and having a great time in the restaurant and doing what I do best.” SCARDUZIO GREW UP in West Philadelphia, though many of his family members remain in the Bella Vista area today. “Oh, ya, absolutely, my father, my aunts, my uncles are still down there,” Scarduzio, whose entire genealogic tree originates from Italy, said. “[They are] Italian, from Abruzzo.” The Abruzzo region, whose western border is about 50 miles from Rome, has a unique food culture. Stateside, the Scarduzio clan continued their cooking traditions and a young Chris took notice. “It was me, I was interested. I wanted to cook,” Scarduzio said of how he became in-

volved with his family’s meal preparations. Cooking was something Scarduzio had enjoyed for as long as he could remember, and after graduating from West Catholic he continued his passion outside the family home. “Well, I was still cooking, bee-bopping around with trying different things, still working in the restaurant,” Scarduzio, who held a job at the Monte Carlo Living Room, Second and South streets, said. “I registered with CIA in New York and graduated top of my class.” Traveling up the turnpike to the Culinary Institute of America, Scarduzio turned home-taught kitchen prowess into finessed craftsmanship. Shortly after graduating, he was offered a job in paradise. “I got a job offer from the Sheraton [in Kauai, Hawaii]. It was awesome, it was great and very expensive, like paradise,” he said. “It was something for me, I am greater for the experience and I learned a lot about seafood out there. But it was time to come home.” Coming back to the City of Brotherly Love, Scarduzio began putting his stamp on Philadelphia’s high-end dining, opening the Grill Room at the Ritz Carlton before becoming part of the opening team for Brasserie Perrier in 1997. “I wanted to be in Philadelphia, my girlfriend was here and I wanted to get married. It’s where I’m from, where I’m most

Medical Research Studies

comfortable,” Scarduzio said. Reaching outside his comfort zone, Scarduzio ventured to the Shore playground in Atlantic City and opened the doors to Mia — named after his only daughter, now 6 — in 2006. The Mediterranean-focused menu won critical and customer praise. “It was an important event in my life and I wanted to really focus hard on this restaurant and I knew I would work harder if it was named after her,” Scarduzio said of his signature venturer, adding that in order to measure success, he looks to the most important critics: “You’ve got to ask the customer — Zagat has us as one of the nine best restaurants in the state. I’ve had a ton of positive reviews and I’m just very proud of it.” Mia, along with other high-end dinging ventures at the time, has helped to reinstitute the glamour that had washed away from Atlantic City. Now, Scarduzio says, there is no better place for entertainment or fine dining on the east coast. On the heels of success at Mia and Brasserie Perrier, Scarduzio’s latest venture is Table 31 — named after the coveted table at Brasserie — opened in the Comcast Center in May ’08. “I’ll have to see what the future holds for right now. I’m not looking to expand, as the opportunity and the concept has to be perfect,” Scarduzio, who is focusing his

efforts on Table 31, said. “I don’t like to dilute myself.” For now, Scarduzio has brought quality “white-cloth dining” to the area and is making sure to keep all of his ventures at the top of local foodies’ lists, saying he feels Philadelphia diners are more discerning and educated than ever before. “[South Philadelphia’s restaurant scene] has definitely gotten much better, and it was good back in the day and now a new crop of chefs is coming in and really raising the bar,” Scarduzio, who was the opening chef at Penn’s Landing’s La Veranda, said. “We’ll have to see what it does for the environment — the restaurants that are opening are for a reason and people are going there.” Scarduzio will continue to balance his demanding job as restaurateur with his equaling demanding and rewarding job of father to three: Chris, 13, Anthony, 10 and Mia. But it’s unlikely he will turn anything into a family business. “I’m trying to do specific things that are relevant to our restaurants. I don’t want to spread myself too thin, really quality not quantity,” Scarduzio said, adding that in regards to teaching his children anything about his craft, first and foremost: “I would hope that they all become doctors!” SPR Comment at news/lifestyles.

Cardella

By Tom Cardella Columnist

Life at the R&T

T

here was a time when Wildwood, N.J. was a little slice of heaven for the working class. It was a place where a man could take his family to get away from the heat and grime of the city. Bennett Avenue was a typical street, lined with clean, simple apartment houses. In the days before an ugly oceanfront condominium was built, you could feel the gentle ocean breeze bringing the scent of salt and sea life and suntan lotion on Bennett Avenue. You could breathe it in as you sat on the porch outside of the R&T Apartments — standing for Rose and Tony. Chances are, if you walked down the street on any given day on a summer afternoon, you would see a woman sitting on the porch at the R&T. She was a big-bonedwoman with thick, powerful wrists. She had a gold tooth and a twinkle in her eye. This was Rose — the one who put the “R” in the R&T. Rose might look as if she were just relaxing. She might even be shouting a greeting to Jeanette across the street or Wanda next door. But as she chats, her eyes are focused on the street. Rose has an empty apartment and she is looking for customers. She can spot one a block away. The women run these apartment houses. Their men are busy working in the city and come down only on weekends. Once the men retire, they are smart enough to stay out of the way of these ladies, so you might see them tinkering in the garden. That’s where you will find Tony out back at the shed fixing the ancient lawn mower. This might be one of the earliest signs of encroaching feminism, although Rose would have never thought of herself as some kind of pioneer for women’s rights. She just knew what she did best and made sure Tony didn’t intrude on her territory. The apartments had cooking facilities. Working class families couldn’t afford to eat out, other than grabbing a slice of pizza at Mack’s. The apartments were not air-conditioned, unless you consider that breeze I mentioned earlier; was natural air-conditioning. Air-conditioning at the Shore was considered a needless luxury by the folks who ran these apartment houses. Rose liked to say all you had to do to keep cool was just open the kitchen window. In the later years when the hated condominium building went up, the little breeze never visited Bennett Avenue anymore. Rose would still hopefully open the window, but not much air came through,

and she would mutter something under her breath about how that big, ugly building on the beach ruined everything. During those years, many Canadians came to Wildwood to vacation. Rose liked to rent to Canadians because they never had company drop in on them. If a renter didn’t get company, it meant there was less cooking and running the water, all of which added to Rose’s utility bills. Like the other apartment houses, the R&T ran on the slimmest of profit margins, so Rose had to be watchful. Some years, it was enough if you were able to meet all of your expenses. Rose ran the place with the ruthlessness of an auditor. Rose operated on a complex formula of pricing that no one in the family, not even Tony, understood. Her rental price depended on her estimation of factors such as whether the prospective renter would run the shower too long, use the stove too much, play loud music, the vacancy rate in the area, the unemployment rate and other assorted and sundry mystical factors. It must be said that Rose had her rules. When you washed off your feet after a day at the beach, you dare not let a drop get on the cement. A non-renting guest was charged 25 cents to use the shower; that rule was applied even to a visiting priest (much to his surprise). All the chairs on the porch and on the back lawn had to be brought inside for the night, including the lawn umbrella. If you weren’t inclined to drink Tony’s homemade wine, the only non-alcoholic drink ever served was grape juice diluted with water. Rose held on to the loaf of bread during dinner, and she was the only one authorized to slice you an extra piece. Rose kept a careful ledger in which she recorded the identity and date of each rental, as well as the price charged. There also was a space in the ledger where if the family turned out to be more trouble than they were worth, she placed an “X” next to their name. If you were unlucky enough to get an “X” beside your name, you had about as much chance of renting one of her apartments next season as you had of getting a front row table to see Sinatra at Skinny’s 500 Club in A.C. One infamous weekend, Rose rented to two attractive young women accompanied by an older man who identified himself as “Uncle Bill.” He paid for his “nieces” and left. Rose heard him re-enter the apartment late at night. She lay in wait the rest of the night and caught Uncle Bill trying to sneak out of the apartment. Rose lectured him on the morality of sharing a bed with his “nieces,” told him that she didn’t run “that kind of place,” and then proceeded to charge Uncle Bill for a full night’s rent. Needless to say, Uncle Bill and his nieces earned an “X” next to their names. SPR Comment at www.southphillyreview.com/opinion/cardella.

Well seasoned with action

Evelyn Salt (Angelina Jolie), aims to elude the CIA, an agency in which she once worked.

By R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer

“S

alt” is just about precisely what you’d expect it to be, which is both a reward and a disappointment. It ably delivers in the pedal-to-themetal department, and it dutifully achieves its mission to be the foxy female intersection of Bond, Bourne and “Mission: Impossible.” But it does it all so ably, dutifully and routinely that it’s hard to have an enthusiastic response to it one way or the other. Diverting action and sufficient intelligence aside, reactions to this movie are practically guaranteed to involve shrugged shoulders. It’s a good thing it rests on the shoulders of Angelina Jolie. Still one of the only women who can carry an action film (Jodie Foster is another), Jolie is terrific at playing thickskinned, svelte-bodied, iron-willed action heroines. Her vulnerable stuff in average dramas like “Changeling” has landed her in Oscar’s good graces, but she’s always at her best when kicking butt. She kicks it with slick, superior efficiency as Evelyn Salt, a CIA agent who becomes a fugitive when she’s accused of being a KGB mole. The film is built on the question of whether or not Salt is in fact a villain, and while your better moviegoing judgment insists upon her innocence, one of the greater achievements of the script by Kurt Wimmer and Brian Helgeland is how long it keeps you guessing. Originally written for a man, “Salt” is an amalgam of spy-movie standbys, from the freeway chases to the rubber-mask disguises to the resourceful escapes to the climactic, explain-it-all speeches. It finds

some paranoid buttons to push (namely that which can incite nuclear war), and it’s light on showy effects, but it’s complacent being espionage comfort food. And with talent like director Phillip Noyce, cinematographer Robert Elswit and co-stars Liev Schreiber and Chiwetel Ejiofor, it has a fine pedigree, but all seem to have approached it as a paycheck job instead of a passion project. That is, of course, with the exception of the leading lady, who continues to command the screen like few stars ever have.

Salt PG-13 Two-and-a-half reels out of four Now playing in area theaters

A Prophet R Available Tuesday In the epic, Oscar-nominated French crime drama “A Prophet,” rising star Tahar Rahim plays an imprisoned youth who begins serving the mafia from behind bars. Not since “The Godfather” trilogy have a gangster’s loss of innocence and rise to power been more carefully and flawlessly illustrated. One of the year’s best films.

H

ot weather calls many things to mind — family vacations, barbecues, ice cream cones and the dreaded summer cold. Mildred Lloyd-Henderson’s super-spicy Five-Alarm Chili may just provide the perfect cure to clear away those stuffed sinuses. While chilli con carne chefs traditionally hoard their secret recipes like family heirlooms, the resident of the 2400 block of Manton Street is eager to share her delicious dish with her fellow residents. For the timid of tongue, this hot sauce-laden meal may best be tackled with a cold glass of milk. SPR

Mildred’s Five-Alarm Chili INGREDIENTS:

2 pounds of red kidney beans, boiled, set liquids aside for sauce 1 tablespoon each of garlic powder, onion, dill, cumin, red pepper seeds, black pepper, white pepper, soy sauce, salt, thyme, Italian seasoning and paprika 2 large cans of tomato paste 2 large cans of crushed tomatoes 1 pound of beef hot sausages, sliced thin 1 cup of creamy peanut butter 2 large red onions, finely chopped 4 scallions, finely chopped 2 large green peppers, finely chopped 2 cans of mushroom stems and pieces 1 16-ounce bottle of hot sauce 3 pounds of lean ground beef 4 eggs, beaten 1/2 cup of olive oil

DIRECTIONS:

Mix the spices with the paste, tomatoes and all the remaining ingredients, minus the meats, eggs and oil, in a large pot for the sauce. In a separate bowl, mix the ground beef together with the eggs and fry the beef loosely in the oil followed by the sausage. usage. Combine the e sauce and meat mixtures in a large pot. Add the beans. Mix it well and let it simmer for two hours. Stir constantly. Serve with white or brown rice. Serves eight to 10.

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

M

y sister Sandy believes we have the same taste in food. She adores my cooking, especially roast chicken or capon, matzo ball soup, burgers, beef cooked in red wine. But she has no sense of adventure when it comes to trying new foods. She will not eat pork, although she loves bacon. If bits of it are heavily disguised in an egg roll or spring roll she throws caution to the wind. Sandy will not try foie gras, sweetbreads or lamb. We grew up eating lamb chops once a week or duck. No matter how hard I try, she does not believe me when I tell her boneless breast of duck tastes like steak. So the upcoming dilemma was this. Will she try Vietnamese food? It is my favorite Asian cuisine because of the French influence and is generally lighter than other Asian fare. I knew we would steer clear of octopus and squid. I decided to hold my breath and take Sandy to Le Viet, a Vietnamese restaurant at 11th Street and Washington Avenue which opened in the spring. Edward joined us for what turned out to be a charming evening. As long as we kept things safe, that is. The restaurant is a large space with banquettes lining one wall and tables and chairs in the center of the room. The large, open kitchen afforded me a fine vista of the goings on. About a dozen people were celebrating a friend’s birthday and there were a few couples having dinner. The first thing Sandy did was to ask for a fork. She won’t try chopsticks.

Le Viet is BYOB, we brought a bottle of grassy Sauvignon Blanc. We sampled three appetizers. First up were cha gio ($3.95), which were prepared with a mix of shrimp and pork rolled into a thin rice paper and deep fried. They were brown and crisp and free of grease. Goi cuon were a first for Sandy. This starter was made with prawns, vermicelli and pork rolled in rice paper with fresh mint and basil. I first thought Sandy would nix the peanut dipping sauce, but she actually liked it. “You don’t think it’s weird?” I asked. “No. It’s delicious. I like peanut butter so I like this,” she said. Crepes are a staple in Vietnamese cuisine. Sandy likes blintzes, so I told her these would be a savory version. We shared the banh xeo ($9.95), which was slightly crisp and filled with pork, shrimp, bean sprouts and scallions. The light as a feather crepe came with fresh lettuce and herbs. I can eat hot soup in any weather. If the air conditioning is pumping, I have no problem tucking into a big bowl of piping hot soup. Although it was a brutally hot evening, we ordered pho Le Viet ha noi ($8.50). The pot was brimming with steak, flank steak, brisket, meatballs, noodles and tripe swimming in a light homemade broth. We ladled the soup into our bowls and had to wait a minute before sampling. It was really steaming. All it required was a sprinkling of salt. I showed Sandy how to tear some Thai basil and put it into the soup along with bean sprouts and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. The beef, Italian

which was gently simmered in stock, was tender. I ate the tripe, Sandy did not. Anyone who loves pho knows it is a meal in a bowl. This soup was so satisfying we had to stop eating it and tote half home. We steered clear of any dish prepared with cilantro because Sandy believes it tastes like soap. Still, I knew she would like an entrée prepared with lemongrass. Ga xao xa ot ($11.95) consisted of tender slices of chicken breast sautéed in lemongrass and served with a side of rice. The dish was on the spicy side, but not overly spiced. The heat was just right. We ended our culinary trip to Vietnam with com chien tom cua ($12.95), a delicious mix of fried rice studded with jumbo lump crabmeat and shrimp. Half of it went home with us.

Service was excellent. Several servers watched the tables, filled our water glasses and gave us fresh plates for each course. It’s funny.

veryone has a specific food memory which transports them to a certain place and time. For Marcel Proust, it was dipping a Madeleine into a cup of tea. For me it happens every time I savor a slice of fatty, creamy Foie Gras. I am immediately transported back to Paris and the first time I tasted this classic delicacy. I have never prepared Foie Gras, but I once watched a friend tie it in cheese cloth and poach it in water. I wanted to learn how to make it, so I invited the talented chef Pierre Calmels, who with his charming wife Charlotte, owns Bibou in Bella Vista, 1009 S. Eighth St. I may get cards and letters on this, but I think it’s the city’s finest French restaurant. Pierre arrived at 11 a.m. on a brutally hot morning. I invited my friend chef Christopher Thames to join us along with videographer/photographer Dash Davis who tasted Foie Gras for the first time. “Foie Gras is not hard to make,” Pierre said in his soft French-accented English. “The important thing is to clean it properly.” Pierre used a butter knife to remove all veins and traces of blood from the 12-ounce goose liver. I noticed one of the two lobes was larger than the other. This did not matter.

God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be. So He put His arms around you and whispered “come to me.” With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away. Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best. What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget.

No stranger to the neighborhood, the Phillies’ first-round draft pick has fans wondering how many more parades he will bring to the area. By Joseph Myers r e v i e w s ta f f w r i t e r

Sporting his hometown team’s cap, Jesse Biddle hopes to be blazing fastballs past Major League hitters within the next few years. photo provided by the gulf coast league phillies

receiving frugal food. BECAUSE OF HIS pitching style, pundits have feasted on comparing Biddle’s upside to that of a few prominent southpaws, including the approach of former Phillie Cliff Lee. “The guys whose names I hear mentioned are outstanding pitchers,” he said. “The comparisons flatter me. Lee and [Yankees’ pitcher Andy] Pettite have performed in high stakes games. I’m just beginning my career. I’m a rookie pitcher with a high ERA [earned run average].” Biddle’s amateur career need not receive short shrift. Last spring, as a senior, he helped the Germantown Friends School Tigers to capture a seventh straight title in the nine-team Friends School League. The four-time time team MVP finished last season with a 9-2 record and an astounding 140 strikeouts over 59.1 innings.

cially the Venezuelans and Dominicans because I took five years of Spanish,” Biddle said. “The clubhouse is kind of an extension of high school. We all understand one another’s situations.” On the mound, Biddle has relied on his blazing fastball, which scouts have clocked as high as 96 mph, to confound hitters. “I’m not throwing my curveball as much, and I’m developing a harder slider and a stronger change-up,” he said. His season runs through Aug. 28, meaning that he figures to make either nine or 10 starts. Management has been watching his pitch count, limiting him to a total of 17.1 innings in his previous starts. By season’s end, he is looking to throw at least six frames per start. To be ready to do so, he nourishes himself properly and cheaply. “The team has it worked out that we can eat all we want at a restaurant for $5 each day,” Biddle said, amazed at his fortune in

SOUTh PHILLY REVIEW I july 29, 2010

esse Biddle celebrates his birthday in late October. With an assist from destiny, he soon will attempt to give himself and local residents unforgettable autumn presents, World Series trophies. The gifted left-handed pitcher — the Phillies’ No. 1 choice in June’s Major League Baseball Draft — comes to the organization with a winning pedigree and a desire to engross himself in the neighborhood culture. The Philadelphia native, 18, became an instant inducer of expectations June 7, when the Phillies made him the 27th overall selection in the first-year player draft. Over the next eight days, he inked a contract, which included a $1.16 million signing bonus, graduated from Germantown Friends School and reported to Clearwater, Fla. to begin his professional career. Debuting June 25, Biddle has made five starts, including two against the Gulf Coast New York Yankees, whose parent club dumped the Phillies in last year’s World Series. His longest outing came Friday, when he pitched four innings against the Gulf Coast Tigers, notching eight strikeouts. Though he resides in a new geographic state, his maturity has remained in the same state that attracted scouts nearly as much as his impressive frame and fastball did. “Being away from home is new to me, but I am fairly independent,” Biddle, who stands at almost 6-foot-5 and weighs about 225 pounds, said in a recent phone interview. The regimented rookie begins his daily preparation at 6:15 a.m., except for an off day on Sundays. Already physically intimidating, he wants to add more muscle. “I’m actually on weight-room probation,” he said with a chuckle. “The team has me restricted to two or three times a week.” When not lifting, he goes through mandatory shoulder stretching and “a lot of running.” “Running, that’s the life of a minor league player,” he confessed. Being independent, Biddle has easily ingratiated himself with his teammates. “We have a very relaxed clubhouse. I’m getting along great with everyone, espe-

His career impressed, among others, the staff at the University of Oregon, with whom he had signed before the draft. “The [Oregon] Ducks have a great program. It will be tough not to honor my commitment, but I have a feeling we’ll all be OK,” Biddle said of choosing baseball over college. Biddle also spent a portion of his amateur tenure in South Philadelphia. Beginning at age 14 and ending last August, he played for the Philadelphia Senators, a team that mines the area for amateur prospects. “I enjoyed my time with coach [Steve] Koplove,” Biddle said. “He taught me how to stay mentally tough. It’s been a long but good year, and I remember his words often. In Clearwater, sometimes we play in front of maybe eight fans, so our enthusiasm has to come from within.” Having grown up in Mount Airy with his parents David and Marion, who work for the Philadelphia Streets Department, Biddle visited South Philadelphia for Phillies’ games, but he spent most of his time here doing summer, fall and winter workouts at Sunoco Field, the Senators’ home at 3501 Moore St. Because of what one might call a one-dimensional experience with the area, he has yet to develop any concrete affinity for any South Philadelphia locations. He is eager to change that distinction. “I see myself knocking on the door of the big club within the next three or four years. After my time with the Gulf Coast Phillies, I’ll play for the [Short-Season A] Williamsport Crosscutters,” he said. Though a professional novice, Biddle has pitched at Fenway Park and Yankee Stadium as part of last year’s Summer Rivalry Baseball Classic Invitational. Though the Phillies play the Boston Red Sox and Yankees in regular season action, fans would undoubtedly welcome the young man’s facing either in the World Series. The rookie hopes to remain with the Phillies far longer than his counterpart. “Once I make it to the team, I won’t ever want to leave,” he said. SPR

lows keep coming to the Philadelphia Phillies lineup as Jamie Moyer, who exited the game Tuesday after one inning, will probably miss a considerable part of the second half of the season, if not all of it. Moyer, who was bumped off the end of the Phillies’ World Series roster last sea-

son, came out with a vengeance in 2010, something rarely seen in his more than 20year career. Proved my prediction wrong. Or did he? Earlier this year I said Moyer would be done by the All-Star break. A week after my fated prediction, Jamie is likely hanging up his glove for the remainder of ’10. Yes, I thought he would be pulled because of an ERA close to 10; Instead, his own muscles did the pulling for him. SPR

NoveNas prayer to the blessed virgin

(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. D.M.G.

st. jude novena

May the Sacred heart of Jesus be adored, glorified, loved and preserved throughout the world, now and forever. Sacred heart of Jesus, have mercy on us. St. Jude, worker of Miracles, pray for us. St. Jude, helper of the hopeless, pray for us. Say this prayer 9 times a day for eight days, by the 8th day your prayers will be answered. Publication must be promised. Thank you St. Jude. D.M.G. 5 day novena to st. theresa St. Theresa, The Little flower. Please pick me a rose form the heavenly garden, and send it to me with a message of love. Ask God to grant me the favor I implore and tell him I will love him daily more and more. This prayer is to be followed by 5 Hail Mary’s, 5 Our father’s and 5 Gloria’s. The prayer is to be said by 11 AM daily for 5 days. On the 5th day you will receive a single rose or more in some form, but only if your favor is to be granted. Take note of what you have promised, if God grants the favor you implore. D.M.G.
