aniyyah Scott has shed far too many tears for a 17-year-old. Despite losing 11 acquaintances, including her father and boyfriend, to gun violence over the last decade, she has never deemed herself snakebitten, choosing to use pain to prove her mettle. She will accept kudos for her efforts today, as the National Liberty Museum will dub her one of its 17 Young Heroes Award winners. “I felt so happy to learn of the honor,” the resident of 22nd and Dickinson streets said Monday of inclusion in the 12th celSee YOUNG HEROES page 8

he first day of school is still about one month away, but that didn’t prevent students and families from braving the heat for a mid-summer visit to South Philadelphia High School, 2101 S. Broad St. to roam the hallways of the Lower Moyamensing institution and take

advantage of the School District of Philadelphia’s annual Back to School Education Extravaganza. The nine-hour gathering featured workshops for kindergartners through 12thgraders, including the “Philly Students Got Talent” show — a local take on NBC reality series “America’s Got Talent.” Darby Township seventh-grader Daiyon Lowman, 13, said he enjoyed attending the

event with his cousins, who live in South Philly. “I got some stuff for college, high-school and after-school programs and tutoring and all-around help,” he said. This marked the second time Southern has hosted the one-day extravaganza, which was sponsored by Forman Mills, See EXTRAVAGANZA page 10

To the Editor: After learning of Eagles’ coach Andy Reid son’s death, I pondered over how many people whom I have spoken with over the years have told me “money and fame would make me happy.” I have read of, and have known many who have proved that statement to be false. To my understanding, one must be content and happy with himself or herself first before anyone or thing could add to that happiness. Although I may not be a physical beauty queen to others, I am a beauty queen to me. I often refer to myself as “Beautiful Barbara,” and I encourage my granddaughter and her friends to call me by that name. It’s not that I am vain or arrogant, I just want people to know that I love myself regardless of what I look like, or what material things I possess. This situation with Andy Reid’s son is very tragic. And I want Mr. Andy Reid and his family to know that we Philadelphians will mourn over their loss, and will keep them in our daily prayers. Barbara Ann Mary Mack Southwest Philadelphia

Distress signals To the Editor: Isn’t it surprising that City Council waited until after the election to take their cost-of-living adjustment raise. Why didn’t they do it before they ran for re-election? Former 1st District Councilman Frank DiCicco saw the writing on the wall and withdrew. Frank Rizzo Jr. was defeated in the primary over the DROP program. City Council members make between $117,000 to $150,000 per year, plus a car, car insurance, free gas and other perks. City workers haven’t had a contract or raise since 2009. Firefighters are on their second arbitration award and Mayor Michael Nutter might appeal that as well. The starting pay for police officers and firemen is in the mid-$40,000 range. Blue-collar workers are probably in the same range or less. But Council members feel that they deserve a raise. Instead of City Council-at-Large Jim Kenney worrying about a state-

ment made by Dan Cathy, president of Chick-fil-A, he should worry about the City of Phil-A. Maybe find some ways to cut taxes instead of making our temporary ones permanent (real estate for the past two years). Go after the deadbeat landlords. Mario Marchetti South Philadelphia

Hitting a memorable mark To the Editor Four extraordinary tips of the toque for the South Philly Review (and not just your table of contents). I now live in Center City, but the exceptional soul and spirit of the Review and of the talented, hard-working staff who make it the top-notch community newspaper it has always been impresses me still. I faithfully read the Review every week and found it an invaluable reference guide to all aspects of the broad community. I’ll ask my mother, a Queen Village resident, “save the Review for me, Mom,” just as my brother, now a New Jersey resident, does (There may be some battling ahead).

Your 65th anniversary edition (May 17) was so well done, and at the same time, so rare of an example of local historical journalism that I’m sure even Phyllis Stein-Novack liked it (I refuse to miss one of our dear Phyllis’ restaurant reviews). The Pennsylvania awards you receive each year are well-earned, but I’m certain the quality of the anniversary issue meets the highest national standard, and those giving out national awards can’t possibly pass you by this year. That issue (like the 50th anniversary edition [Oct. 9, 1997] that I remember so well and saved for a long time) is a consistently exceptional historical record of the establishment and growth of small, family-owned businesses in South Philadelphia, and is an immigrant story unsurpassed in its stirring narrative of hard work, sacrifice, struggle against unrelenting odds, and courageous self-reliance — a long-standing American virtue. Thank you all. Carol K. Frank Center City Comment on these letters or topics at southphillyreview.com/opinion/letters.

Point Breeze suffered its second bullet-related killing of the year last week.

Nailed

A Point Breeze man was slain in West Passyunk last week. Joseph Knight, 22, of the 1800 block of South 23rd Street, received multiple gunshot wounds to his torso, leg and hand at midnight Aug. 2 on the 1900 block of South 23rd Street, Officer Tanya Little of the Police Public Affairs Unit said. He was transported to HUP and pronounced dead 15 minutes later. Police did not have any suspects or a motive at press time. To report information, call Homicide Division at 215-686-3334, text PPDTIP (773847) or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

Surrendered to the county A West Passyunk man is in custody for a June slaying inside a Bella Vista home. Tariq D. Jenkins, 23, of the 2000 block of Mifflin Street, turned himself in to police Aug. 1, Officer Jill Russell of the Police Public Affairs Unit said. He was charged with murder, possession of an instrument of crime and two firearm violations — carrying in public and without a license, according to court records. He was transferred from Montgomery County where he was imprisoned for violating parole for two 2010 Montgomery County retail theft charges that he pled guilty to last year. Jenkins allegedly killed Michael J. Fox, 30, of the 900 block of South Eighth Street, who was found in a pool of his own blood in his bedroom with multiple blunt force impact injuries at 12:06 a.m. June 22, according to police.

Stealing from the state

Forging distress

An elderly woman was victimized when she allowed a man claiming to be a City employee inside her Whitman home. An unknown man rang the doorbell of a residence on the 2400 block of South Fourth Street at 3 p.m. Aug. 2, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. He identified himself as a City maintenance worker and explained his need to check her electric since an area transformer blew. The 85-year-old directed him to the basement and he requested her to flip the circuit breaker switches, Tolliver said. While below ground level, the man was suspiciously on his cell phone, so she asked for his ID, which he claimed he was not required to carry since he was a supervisor. Once she threatened to call police, he fled from the home. The woman saw an upstairs light was on and the broken lock on a wooden chest that had about $5,000 and an undetermined amount of jewelry missing, Tolliver said. The man was described as Latino, age 40 to 50, 5-foot-8 and clean-shaven; having a heavy build and dark-colored hair; and wearing a blue shirt, jeans and sunglasses. A description of the second offender was not available at press time. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-685-1635, text PPDTIP (773847) or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

A neighbor allegedly burglarized a Lower Moyamensing man’s home at least twice. Allegedly writing a stolen check out to himself led to his capture Saturday. An 83-year-old man was asleep at 4 a.m. June 11 at his residence on the 2400 block of South Eighth Street when he awoke to allegedly find David Milano, 29, of the same block, in his room, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The man fled with $925 from the man’s wallet. A few hours later the victim was transported to the hospital for complications from medical treatment. Upon his return from the hospital 15 days later, he noticed two Samsung TVs, a Samsung Blu-ray player, two checkbooks and ID,

The Attorney General’s Office has arrested a Grays Ferry man and ex-state worker for fraud. A former income maintenance caseworker at Delaware County Assistance Office in Darby, Ivan Jones, 47, of the 1400 block of South Etting Street, is believed to have stolen public assistance benefits totaling about $39,000, according to an Attorney General press release. A Lansdowne woman also was apprehended for a separate scheme at the same office. Both arrests were the result of an ongoing investigation targeting public assistance fraud. Additional arrests are expected. Between 2007 and ’11 Jones allegedly used the names of exIvan Jones isting beneficiaries to open new accounts and authorize payments to them without their knowledge, according to the release. He is believed to have sent EBT cards to various Delaware County addresses and his Grays Ferry home. Surveillance video at ATMs and banks allegedly captured Jones using the cards to withdraw funds. Additionally, he is believed to have made deals with two other public assistance recipients to raise their benefits and split the proceeds. Jones was arrested July 27 and charged with five counts of theft by deception, criminal use of a communication facility and unlawful use of a computer; and two counts of criminal conspiracy. Each charge could result in up to seven years in jail and $15,000 in fines, according to the release. He was released on his own recognizance July 31. His arraignment is set for Aug. 23.

with a total value of $3,000, also missing. It is unclear when the items were taken. When he notified his bank of the missing checks, a representative informed him a $250 check made out to Milano was cashed June 18, Tolliver said. The man reported another burglary at 1:56 a.m. July 23, Tolliver said. After falling asleep at 9 the night before, he awoke to find open dresser drawers and items, such as a filing cabinet and his pants he had on the previous day, misplaced. However, nothing was reported missing. There were no signs of forced entry in any of the break-ins. Police arrested Milano, who was charged with two counts of burglary, criminal trespassing, theft and receiving stolen property and a count of forgery, at 9:45 a.m. Aug. 4 at South Detectives, Tolliver said. Milano currently has two open cases, including a May 27 3rd District and a June 8 1st District retail theft, according to court records. He previously served time for a string of 4th District — now 3rd District — robberies in September 2001.

YOUNG HEROES continued from page 1 ebration of youngsters who show their character by forging chance in their communities or schools. “I have won honors before but nothing this big.” In addition to endowing Scott with a certificate and a medal, the Old City site will give her the inaugural Troy Johnson Memorial Award, which derives its name from a youth mentor who last year became one of Philadelphia’s 324 homicide victims. It also will add her story to its “Young Heroes” exhibit, but the teenager feels her work remains in its infancy. “I am a hero in training or hero support,” the recent graduate of Prep Charter High School, 1929 Point Breeze Ave., said. “A hero is someone who can change a person’s life without trying, but I’m not that yet.” Her peers and mentor Molly Schamel seem to differ. The latter met Scott in October 2010, seven months after the young lady said farewell to her boyfriend. As a therapist for Fairmount’s 30-year-old Anti-Violence Partnership of Philadelphia, Schamel spent six months offering individualized treatment to Scott before starting a six-member peer support group for co-victims of homicide. “Haniyyah is the strongest young person I have met, and the other kids soon realized that if she could survive so many losses, they could also find ways to heal,” Schamel said. Her sway won Scott immediate respect from her contemporaries, with calls for fortitude and creativity fostering their relationships. “Some might say I’m being bossy, but I’m just displaying leadership,” Scott said. Her abundant maturity led Schamel to nominate Scott in June, with the two receiving great news last month. The windfall came as a thrilling yet briefly enjoyed distinction, as she parted with another ally, her boyfriend’s best friend, July 30. “At times it has been hard to take it all in,” Scott said of the staggering amount of people with whom she has had premature partings. “I understand death, but I wonder why it keeps affecting so many people close to me. I’ve actually become a bit jaded by it.” With five relatives, including an infant, among the deceased, she noted many of the losses have come within her Point Breeze neighborhood. The first, however, occurred outside of the city and bred a means of recuperation that she has expanded through nearly two years with AVP, the lone Philadelphia organization whose mission focuses on reducing the entire cycle of violence by providing intervention, prevention and support programs. “I was distant from my father, but his

death hit me hard,” she said of her patriarch’s ’02 demise in Pittsburgh. “It still hits me hard because it has been 10 years and because he couldn’t see me go to my senior prom or graduate.” Though only 7 at the time, Scott penned a poem for the slain figure, initiating a love for writing by analyzing her despair and its battle with hope for her soul. While mathematics interested her at the West Passyunk secondary institution, she engrossed herself in serving as a scribe among her peer group colleagues, always eager to pursue her muse, even if the topics seemed dark. “I have an abundance of poems,” she

said of her time at AVP, “and write about whatever comes to mind.” A self-confessed terrible artist, Scott also has attempted to develop her artistic voice through collaging and painting. She has yet to decide what the outcome of her output might be, but Schamel, who discussed her protege’s writing prowess in her nomination, feels Scott’s handiwork encompasses much resolve. “I realize the power of my writing,” Scott said, “but I really try through it to help other people to find their strength.” LIFE HAS PROVEN so daunting at times that Scott last year would have considered not

losing a companion a priceless blessing. A cousin’s December death ended a period free of grief and reminded her again of life’s fragility. If not for an aunt’s suggesting AVP, she knows she might have fallen prey to self-pity. “I’d tried other counselors, but none resonated with me or made me feel as if they knew what I was going through,” Scott said. “Molly is different and has helped me greatly.” Schamel revealed that clients receive AVP tutelage for years, adding that grasping violent deaths and crafting the courage to preach tolerance should never be rushed processes. Her employer’s website notes that Philadelphia possessed last year’s highest homicide rate among the nation’s 10 largest cities, so tapping the confidence of youngsters, especially adolescents, who are often the main or secondary victims, compels her and has made her and Scott great friends. “I want to study psychology so I can be to kids what Molly has been to me,” Scott said of her impending course of study at Cabrini College, where she will begin another chapter in her life Aug. 23, two days after her 18th birthday. She has already attracted attention in her confines, as local children have christened her an inspiration for living respectable lives. “I love it,” she said of being someone to whom they will tell their problems and make inquiries about their decisions. The first person on her block to go to college, she does not engage in selfaggrandizement, seeing herself only as someone who has blended her resilience and resources to benefit others. “I’ve been able to make many friends and will continue to try to be a beacon for them and others,” Scott said. She and Schamel will attend the threehour gathering together, although the latter, who has so often convinced her young chum to offer her opinions, will not be able to persuade her to say anything beyond “Thank you.” “I am going to be very brief,” Scott said, adding her $500 prize will go toward her college tuition. Though the Point Breeze resident shuns lauding herself, she cannot escape plaudits. “I look at her commitment to growth as a blessing,” Schamel said. “Her story helps people to understand their privilege and gain an understanding of resilience.” “I just want to make a difference,” Scott added. “If anybody needs help, I’ll never judge.” SPR For more information, visit avpphila.org.

EXTRAVAGANZA continued from page 1 Elliott-Lewis and Comcast. About 10,000 book bags equipped with school supplies — like pencils and notebooks — and 7,500 water bottles were donated. Having easy access to public transportation was one of several factors in selecting the 105-yearold school. “What we’ve learned early on is that it makes it more authentic when it’s held at a school, as opposed to the administration building where we used to hold it our previous years,” Claudia Averette, deputy chief of the Office of Parent, Family and Community Engagement, said. The event also served as a golden opportunity to shine a positive light on Southern, which back in 2009 was at the center of ethnic controversy and racial violence. “It isn’t what drew us here, but it made a great statement to say that we are one, and we will continue to work as one,” Averette said. “I think we’ve done a lot of healing in this community. I think we’ve done a lot of work together. And I think today is representative of the work that we have done here at South Philadelphia High School.” Averette helped to plan this year’s backto-school event through the administration’s central Broad Street office in North Philadelphia. “The beauty of this event is that it’s not a snatch and grab. It’s not come, get materials, throw it in the bag and then leave and go home,” Averette said. “This is really an educational opportunity for our students and our parents.” Parent workshops at the event included distribution of Title I information, multilingual services, understanding Pennsylvania System of School Assessments and more. Center City’s Turning Points for Children, one of the oldest service agencies in the country, participated by offering an array of information to families in need of community resources. “We have many programs that pretty much help to try to strengthen their family bond and try to keep their family together. So it’s really to empower them, connect them with services and keep them safe,” Dyana Reid, a staff member for Turning Point’s Family Empowerment Services, said. Reid said she was at the event to give information out and to be a partner with all the various Philadelphia agencies. “We’re all here doing pretty much the same thing, trying to keep our children safe in the city, access the needs of the families in the area, prepare them to go back to school and let them know that education is definitely important,” Reid said.

was present for the event’s kickoff with the School Reform Commission chair Pedro Ramos and Nutter. “I think it’s a great start for this year and I really think this is a new beginning for the school system,” Marc Adelman, archivist chair from the South Philadelphia High School Alumni Association, said. “Our new superintendent was here today ... he’s given me some hope that there will be a new start here.” Adelman, a 1957 Southern graduate, was at the event to recruit new members and be a face of support for parents, alumni, teachers and the school. “It’s gonna take communication, it’s gonna take being out front of these students and being out front of these teachers and being out front of parents to say, ‘Your kid is our kid and we support them,’” Adelman said. It is up to volunteers to encourage new programs, and the back-to-school extravaganza is a great depiction of that, he said. “They have to see that people not just wanna give them things but wanna care for them ... because, being honest with you, even though these kids come from 15 different cultural backgrounds, ... they’re still kids, they’re still children, they’re eager to learn, and we’re eager to let them know that we’re here and care about their learning.” SPR

The competition featured the top Web initiatives from community and suburban newspapers across North America. The South Philly Review, competing against other non-daily websites with circulation less than 100,000, took home the top prize for Best Local Community Website. The judges described southphillyreview.com as “easy to read, effective typography, lots of pictures, video, polls, plenty of content to engage without being overly cluttered.” The site added a second-place distinction in the Best Overall Local News Site category. The entry included coverage of President Barack Obama’s July 2011 visit to John’s Water Ice, the August ’11 death of Joey Vento, owner of South Philly staple Geno’s Steaks, and the Aug. ’11 breaking news story “Mother slayed children.” The South Philly Review also finished third in the Best Social Media Initiative category.

ORGANIZED BY THE PhillyGoes2College office, which is a referral center within Mayor Michael Nutter’s Office of Education, the college pavilion was a new feature this year. Many local universities and colleges were represented by School District of Philadelphia’s alumni. “It gives our children a real promise to know that it’s not just their parents and their teachers saying that you have to go on, but then it’s their peers that are saying that ‘you can do it because I’ve done it too,’” Averette said. Students striving for the spotlight were able to show off their skills via the “Philly Students Got Talent” show, which was a highlight of the day with students competing for netbooks, tickets to Jay-Z’s Made in America concert taking place Sept. 1 and 2 on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and more.

As the artistic director of Philadelphia’s only all-comedy theater house, Jen Childs wants to make people laugh. By Jess Fuerst Review Contributor

ast year, artistic director of 1812 Productions Jen Childs, of Eighth and Federal streets, took a step back and asked her self the same question she has for the past 16 years: “What do people want to see?” What developed was the 2012-13 season of the all-comedy troupe. “I look at what we’re able to offer, and I want a variety … within an all-comedy format I want a really diverse offering of comedic styles,” Childs said. Kicking off this fall, Childs and the 1812 team will have a season with a political comedy, a silent neo-vaudevillian film, a play that is collaboration with Drexel University and a musical based on how women use comedy in telling their own stories. “I’ve been working on it a really long time, working on it a-year-and-a-half. A large part of it is interviews with women in our community,

Lifestyles nonperformers, just women in Philadelphia,” Childs said of 50 to 100 discussions with women for the season’s final piece, “It’s My Party.” “I’ve done six or seven different workshops [with actors for the piece], but it’s pretty all-consuming. All of it folding into a piece eventually is my task for now. Certainly all of it folds into the inspiration, but no one will be playing these women. But with their permission, we will use pieces of what they said.” The female-inspired work, which was supported by a grant, rounds out the end of the season. However, the group plans to kick off with a bang at the height of election season with “This Is the Week That Is,” an 1812 standard for the past seven years. “It changes every year and changes then again weekly and sometimes daily to respond to current events,” the 43-year-old said. “The way politics is and the economy, people are aching to laugh about it because if we don’t laugh, we cry. We knew we had to create our own political humor and the energy during the performances — people are right on the edge of their seats, specifically during elections because this is stuff people are fired up about. “They laugh in a really different way than if we’re making you laugh about love or housework. It’s things people feel

very passionately about. It’s a weighted kind of laughter.” CHILDS IS FROM Columbus, Ohio, where she began theater because, as she said, “Of course you auditioned for the plays. “I had done it in high school, but it’s weird because I remember auditioning for the plays in high school and not having a particular passion for it.” Though she excelled on the stage, she harbored aspirations of becoming a pediatrician until a family trip across the pond realigned her idea of what was possible. “Growing up in the Midwest and coming from community theater and things like that, I was overseas with my family since my dad had a sabbatical in England and I saw the Royal Shakespeare Co. and it was Kenneth Branagh and Judi Dench performing and I realized people make this their life. This is a way to make a living and it switched [my impression].” She applied to and attended The University of the Arts where she studied theater and acting. Childs characterized herself as “serious” and suited for drama, but her grandfather, James Childs Sr., saw something else. “My grandfather — one day when I was home in Ohio visiting after school, I was telling him about all the amazing dramatic roles I said I’d be playing and he said, ‘I

don’t know, I just see you going into comedy,’” she said. “I didn’t want to hear it at the time. I was 21 and thought my life very dramatic. He was right.” Continually cast in comedic roles before she embraced the genre entirely, Childs returned to Philly to work behind the scenes and onstage with the community she found had changed profoundly since she had originally landed at The University of the Arts in 1986. “I came back in 1991 and the community had really changed. The Arden [Theatre Co.] had started and people were casting more local people,” the Passyunk Square resident said. “I started getting cast here in Philly and was able to make my living as an artist. I could teach a couple classes and perform in plays and I was fine and that was unheard of.” After building a successful career onstage, Childs and Pete Pryor — her best friend from The University of the Arts — wanted to transition to directing. They approached the Arden, which had built a second stage that was still not fully booked and offered it to them for exhibition of a self-produced work. “We started just wanting to do one show, but we realized we have a lot more to say than just one thing,” Childs said. “[We thought], ‘What can be said through comedy that you can’t say through drama or

what will people be more willing to listen to or more open to?’” Sixteen seasons later 1812 is still exploring the same mission, with a full lineup of comedy-strewn offerings, updated for a 2012 audience. “One of the characters I created and still perform is Patsy from South Philadelphia. She has a life of her own and people love her,” she said. “I’m always amazed by the women who work the voting booths that I go to and the amazing stories they have to tell. … They speak in parable. They’ll tell a story that seems to have nothing to do with it, but then they get to the point and they’ve completely answered your question. That’s what Patsy does.” The 13-year South Philly resident is in love with her neighborhood and clearly uses inspiration from neighbors, when applicable, in her work. For the upcoming season, she hopes audience members, new and old, come out to see what 1812 is serving up. “It’s affordable theater and, more than affordable, there’s so few places you can go where you know you’re going to laugh,” Childs said. “I always say, everybody in the world wants to make you cry; I just want to make you laugh.” SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/news/lifestyles.

Present at the beginning

W

hen I heard that SportsRadio 94WIP will be 25 years old next year, it brought back a lot of memories. I was a weekend broadcaster at the station when it switched from its longtime middle-of-the-road music format to sports. The station is promoting “WIP on the Road to 25 — the History of WIP.” Writer Chuck Darrow of Philadelphia SportsWeek called WIP more than a mere radio station, deeming it “a public utility.” All I can say is that in the beginning, if you were comparing the station to a public utility, it would be PGW. It had as many trials and tribulations as the gas utility, only more tumultuous. I debuted at WIP in 1983 as a fill-in sportscaster for Merrill Reese on Tuesday mornings with Ken Garland. Merrill is a close friend, and through his insistence, I returned to broadcasting after a 20-year absence. The gig was supposed to last nine weeks, but lasted six years. I moved on to a couple of other radio stations where I still do sports talk today. Although WIP sports-talk format officially began in ’88, the station’s slow transition to an all-sports station began several years earlier. Howard Eskin actually began doing sports talk on WIP in ’86 — two years prior to it becoming a 24-hour sports talk station. WIP, Philadelphia’s oldest radio station, began airing in 1922. It had been successful as a music and news outlet, featuring legendary disc jockeys such as Garland, Joe McCauley, Tom Lamaine, “Wee Willie” Webber, Tom Moran and Nat Wright. In the early ’80s, the music changed from Ella Fitzgerald to Air Supply and WIP’s ratings began to fade. Gimbels department store founded WIP, and when I got there, it had been under the ownership of Metromedia for many years. The station would undergo several changes of ownership, including Spectacor now Comcast-Spectacor, during my six years there. In the mid-’80s as WIP began to move to all-sports, I was a weekend guy doing sports headlines. One weekend, a perky female, newly hired and new to the area, refused to include the sudden death during a morning jog of Philadelphia legend (Olympic rower and former City Councilman) Jack Kelly. Despite my pleadings, she didn’t think the death of some old guy

was that important. I included the item as my lead sports story. Her tenure at WIP ended abruptly. The death of Flyers goalie Pelle Lindbergh happened on a Sunday morning in November ’85. I was gathering the sports news off the wire when I received a phone tip about Lindbergh’s fatal car crash. Unfortunately, I got so rattled I forgot to take down the details, not even the name and number of the caller. Frantically, I tried to confirm the story by calling South Jersey police, area hospitals and finally Flyers announcer Gene Hart, who, obviously not believing what my shaky voice was telling him, hung up on me and admonished me not to disturb him on a Sunday morning when he was doing the New York Times crossword puzzle. I never did get the Lindbergh story before we were scooped. It remained my worst moment in radio until I prematurely announced the death of Walter Payton (by a full week) on an Eagles pregame show on WYSP. Wire services and New York’s WFAN picked up my erroneous report, which made sports pages across the country. Prior to going all-sports, WIP carried Larry King’s show at 11 p.m. Saturdays. One such night in the midst of the TysonDouglas fight, I had to sign off while telling listeners that one of the greatest upsets in boxing history was happening. Again through Reese, WIP gave me a chance to host the Eagles pregame and postgame. We watched the road games on a TV in the station manager’s office before doing the post-game show. It would have worked out fine, but my co-host, a former Eagles player, would fall asleep from the opening kickoff until the final whistle sounded. Afterward, he would ask me whether the Eagles won or lost and then fake the game analysis. Another former player and co-host disappeared one night before the postgame to rendezvous with a lady. Needless to say, I did the first halfhour of the show alone. One WIP program director called me on the carpet because I didn’t sound “South Philly enough.” The most successful program director was Tom Bigby, a tyrant who turned sports talk into a financial success. He thought nothing of walking into the studio while you were on the air and blasting the talent for going to a commercial three seconds late. One time he said to me, “You probably think I’m an (rhymes with ‘glass pole’).” No answer necessary. Bigby loved the Eagles and hated the Phillies. He actually issued a memo in ’89 that we were not to mention anything that happened in sports prior to ’85. He wanted younger listeners. I worked with Reese, Eskin and Bill Campbell. What a hoot.

‘Bourne’ again

Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner), from left, and Dr. Marta Shearing (Rachel Weisz) star in the fourth installment of the “Bourne” series.

By R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer

T

he “Bourne” franchise may have seen the last of Matt Damon’s ruthlessly suave killing machine, but it’s still a reliable source for classy espionage, as proven by “The Bourne Legacy,” the first installment to not boast Damon as the lead. Inheriting the role of vengeful, geneticaly-modified super-agent is Jeremy Renner, who, as Aaron Cross, the ultraefficient survivor of the CIA’s mass killing of its altered operatives, delivers the handto-hand combat skills and the acting chops to go with them. Whereas Damon gave a largely stoic performance to underscore Bourne’s crippling amnesia, Renner’s work is animated while still being steely, and it makes you grateful for the doors that opened after his breakout turn in “The Hurt Locker.” In this pseudo spinoff, loosely adapted from Eric Van Lustbader’s extension of Robert Ludlum’s book series, there’s a host of “Bourne” hallmarks that fans will devour, including rooftop chases, neck-snapping scuffles and familiar characters back for round four. Joan Allen, David Strathairn, Albert Finney, and Scott Glenn all return as members of the shady block-ops unit constantly covering its unethical tracks, and they’re joined by first-time cast mates Edward Norton (the new chief baddie) and Rachel Weisz (the new main squeeze). Also reprising his duties is series screenwriter Tony Gilroy, who, additionally, steps into the director’s chair vacated by Paul Greengrass. In a script he co-wrote with brother Dan, Tony Gilroy keeps his urbane intellect intact, and his latest keeps the “Bourne” series among the smartest of action films, but he’s still a rung or three down from his predecessor, who made

hyperkinetic, handheld art of the material. Tony Gilroy isn’t so savvy with the set pieces, and his surplus of shady, backstage exposition can be taxing (there’s surely no shortage of suited men eyeing up screens and asking, “Why wasn’t I told about this!?”). Rather than rocketing forward, the film can feel like it’s spinning its wheels. And yet, it’s heartening that there’s still a brainy action option for viewers, even if it isn’t operating at full capacity. The saga hasn’t lost its claim to being the ultimate anti-Bond.

The Bourne Legacy PG-13 Two-and-a-half reels out of four Opens tomorrow in area theaters

Recommended Rental The Hunger Games PG-13 Available Tuesday One of the biggest film’s of the year and one of the most nail-bitingly stressful (will they get the details right?), “The Hunger Games” proves to be a sturdy adaptation, brining Suzanne Collins’s dystopian work to the screen without losing the pervading dread that made the book so popular. Jennifer Lawrence is on point as arrowshooting heroine Katniss Everdeen, and “Pleasantville” helmer Gary Ross proves surprisingly fit for director duties. Don’t miss it.

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

P

eople often ask me to recommend a restaurant for Sunday brunch. I always answer “go to Hawthornes.” Located at 11th and Fitzwater streets, this beauty serves up sumptuous authentic French omelettes, light-as-a-feather pancakes, huge salads, crab cakes Benedict and much more. My ears immediately perked up when I learned the owners of Hawthornes recently opened a British-style pub on South Street. It’s called The Cambridge, an apt moniker since the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are none other than William and Kate. The restaurant consists of a bar equipped with televisions, as well as a dining area. It’s very casual with exposed brick walls, wooden booths, tables and tiny, uncomfortable stools. The bar chairs, however, have backs on them. Sandy, Edward and I settled in as our server answered all of our questions. The menu is a fun mix of American, Mexican, French and British classics. I tip my toque to the person who wrote the menu. The beer list can be overwhelming but Emily, our server, was very knowledgeable. I selected a 16-ounce Yards ESA ($5) while Edward sipped a PH Oyster ($7). We began dinner with pierogies ($10), stuffed Anaheim peppers ($8) and grilled peach and pecan salad ($11). The pierogies are always prepared with potatoes, but the filling rotates. The strands of tender short rib blended well with the creamy filling. Three came with M a rc o n i / Pa c ke r Pa r k

the order. I asked Emily if the peppers were hot. She said they have a bit of a kick of spice but are not overwhelmingly hot. Two long Anaheim peppers were stuffed with cheddar, smoked gouda and cream cheeses, coated with crumbs and roasted in the oven. They sat on a pool of spicy tomato sauce garnished with pico de gallo and small bits of queso fresco. I enjoyed the balance of spice, as well as the mix of cheeses that complemented each other in flavor and texture. The sauce was outrageously tasty. Peaches are in season and their flavor is always pronounced when they hit a smoky grill. A mound of lightly dressed frisée was surrounded by juicy grilled peaches and a sprinkling of candied pecans and creamy goat cheese. The dressing was prepared with sherry and shallots — one fine combination. Four burgers are on the bill of fare and Edward and I wanted to taste the porker burger ($13). We are glad we did. It included 24hour brined hand-ground pork topped with roasted long hots, sautéed broccoli rabe and sharp provolone on an onion poppy seed roll. The meat was juicy and perfectly seasoned. Edward substituted the house-cut fries with a small mound of fresh greens that were a fine foil for the burger. Sandy loves fish and chips. The Cambridge’s version ($17) was a real winner. The fish was probably cod and was moist and translucent inside. Malt vinegar

A mound of piping hot French fries, Amish slaw, which was pickled shredded cabbage with a bit of vinegar, and the best homemade Tartar sauce, enhanced by Dijon mustard, on this side of any fine seafood house in America. I ordered the steak frites ($21), which was tough, chewy and not properly seared on the outside although it was mediumrare inside. A dollop of butter mixed with blue cheese was placed on top in the French style. A small mound of steamed spinach with garlic and fries were very well done. Alas, I discovered a strand of paper in my dinner. The manager came to our table and explained parchment paper is used to make the seasoned butter. He apologized and when we received the bill.

It was not overly sweet, rich in chocolate flavor with a divine slightly dense texture all of us enjoyed.

T h e To q u e S t o p s H e r e

Julia Child might be gone, but her recipes continue to serve as a declaration of culinary creations for home cooks of all ages. By Phyllis Stein-Novack Food Columnist

lans are in full swing for celebrations on what would have been Julia Child’s 100th birthday. She was born on Aug. 15, 1912 in Pasadena, Calif., and died on Aug. 13, 2004 in Santa Barbara, Calif. I always thought Julia would get a kick out of the fact that she left us on Friday the 13th. I may be the sole Philadelphia restaurant critic/food columnist who knew Julia. We last met at a big Moroccan dinner hosted by my friend Esther Press McManus at her home near Rittenhouse Square in 1996. Julia and I watched with humorous horror as Georges Perrier topped off his flute of Perrier-Jouët with a splash of Perrier. It was a remarkable feast of appetizers, bisteeya — the scrumptious savory chicken pie redolent with cinnamon — perfectly roasted legs of lamb, which chef Peter Gilmore carved with the skill of a surgeon, and an array of Middle-Eastern sweets. Restaurants and good home cooks are holding special dinners in honor of Julia’s centennial. On Aug. 12, the Philadelphia chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier International, an international nonprofit for women in the food/wine/hospitality industries,

will celebrate at the home of Susanna Foo. I have been a member of the organization for more than 23 years and will bring a platter of cool baked cucumbers as per Julia’s recipe. On the weekend of Julia’s death, I prepared a platter of juicy, red ripe tomatoes with basil from my garden, roast chicken, baked cucumbers, couscous and a mix of fresh fruit macerated in Champagne. Here’s to you, Julia. You have influenced my professional life and the way I cook at home.

■ Baked Cucumbers ■

From “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” by Julia Child, Louisette Bertholle and Simone Beck Ingredients:

6 cucumbers, about 8 inches long, peeled, cut in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds with a spoon 2 tablespoons of wine vinegar 1-1/2 half teaspoons of salt 1/8 teaspoon of sugar 3 tablespoons of butter, melted 1/2 teaspoon of dill or basil 3 to 4 tablespoons of minced green onions 1/8 teaspoon of pepper

Directions: Cut the cucumbers into lengthwise strips about three-eighths-inch wide and then

into 2-inch pieces. Toss the cucumbers in a stainless steel bowl with the vinegar, salt and sugar. Let stand for at least 30 minutes or for several hours. Drain and pat dry with a towel. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Toss the cucumbers into a baking dish 12 inches in diameter and one-and-a-half inches deep. Add the butter, herbs, onions and pepper. Toss well. Set uncovered in the middle level of the oven for about one hour, tossing two or three times, until cucumbers are tender but still have the suggestion of crispness and texture. They will barely color during cooking. Serves six. Note from Phyllis: Snip the dill and basil in this recipe. You can enjoy the cucumbers hot, warm or at room temperature.

■ Perfect Roast Chicken ■ Ingredients:

1 6-pound organic chicken, wiped down thoroughly with paper towels, inside and outside. 3 tablespoons of unsalted butter, softened and cut into pieces Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste Imported sweet smoked Spanish paprika 1 cup of chicken stock

2 teaspoons of cornstarch mixed with 1-1/2 cups of water

Directions: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Make sure the chicken is at room temperature. Using your fingertips, gently pull away the breast skin and place pieces of the butter under it. Once all of the butter is used, gently press down on the chicken breast. Season the chicken, inside and outside, with the salt. Sprinkle with the black pepper and paprika. Place the chicken in a roasting pan. Roast, uncovered, for at least 90 minutes, or until the juices run clear when the thigh is pierced with a knife. Allow the chicken to rest, tented with aluminum foil, for about 10 minutes before carving. Place the pan juices in a saucepan. Add the chicken stock and bring to a simmer, stirring well. Add the cornstarch mixture and stir until thickened. Serves six. Note from Phyllis: Julia especially enjoyed baked cucumbers with roast chicken or any type of roast. I would serve a Cotes du Rhone or cabernet sauvignon with the chicken. SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/food-anddrink/features.

LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22): Emotions are stirred up. You may feel sad or worried without knowing why. Try not to be too overwhelmed. Reach out to a friend or relative for insight. Lucky number: 568. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22): Join forces with others, especially a group focused on a charitable effort. Don’t go far as there is a need for your energy and talents locally. Lucky number: 092. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22): People need space and freedom today, so don’t insist on closeness. Let loved ones do their thing. Trust they’ll wander back sometime. Use this time to spoil yourself. Lucky number: 941. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21): Be kind to others by going out of your way if you have to. People are feeling sensitive, and putting out positive energy brings it back. Others will follow this example. Lucky number: 474. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21): Today should be strange and unusual — your favorite sort of day. Individuality is highlighted. There are some things you’ve always wanted to do, but for some reason were inhibited to try. Let loose and follow the heart. Lucky number: 804 CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19): A friend could seem distant today. They’re probably just wrapped up in some new scheme or idea. Don’t take it personally. Offer support and give them the space they need. Lucky number: 389. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18): Your intuition is pronounced today. It’s easy to pick up on what others are thinking and feeling. Comfort them, but being too intrusive could seem offensive. Lucky number: 297. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20): Express creativity to its fullest. Take an innovative approach to everything, even if just tackling the usual. Thinking outside the norm is refreshing and inspiring to those around you. Lucky number: 755. ARIES (March 21 to April 20): The needs of others become quite apparent to you today. Consider them in decisions, but put your foot down if needed. Being resourceful benefits everyone involved. Lucky number: 413. TAURUS (April 21 to May 20): Tenderness reigns today as you crave closeness with loved ones. Plan a special night at home. They crave your company too. Lucky number: 162. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20): A taste for the exotic and unfamiliar is heightened. Explore fresh ideas and new experiences. Start at the library or local bookstore. You never know what will pop out and spark interest. Lucky number: 835. CANCER (June 21 to July 22): You’re tired of not getting all of the appreciation and acknowledgment. Hard work and dedication is not going unnoticed. Keep up the effort and the praise you seek will come. Lucky number: 684. SPR

A Marconi tennis team capped its summer program by earning a City runner-up distinction. Forced to conquer the remaining sets, the area bashers gained a jolt from the first doubles pairing of Kevin Hoxha and Patrick Phang, whose consistent strokes earned a 6-2 decision. “There’s a little momentum,” Hughes said as the duo smiled and decided to watch fourth-singles option John Ho in what easily classified as the day’s best encounter. Ho, also a 15-year-old soon-to-be sophomore at GAMP, made the most of his four years of play by trading well-placed shots with a crafty left-handed antagonist. Their wizardry had both camps marveling, and the youngsters needed a tiebreaker to determine the victor. Ho fought valiantly but lost 12-10 in the decider to fall 7-6. “I should have won,” the resident of 18th

striking a ball and looked eager to pounce as the first four affairs commenced. The South Philadelphians sealed their appearance in the final Aug. 2, claiming triumphs over Cobbs Creek and Markward at Franklin Delano Roosevelt Park, Broad Street and Pattison Avenue. They quickly learned their blemish-free slate meant little to their challengers, however. With secondsingles designee Keophondeth and first-singles selection Andrew “McLovin” Golembeski waiting in the wings, the pressure seemed too intense for Preston Ngo. The third-singles choice struggled to outmaneuver his combatant and succumbed 6-1. His younger brother Pierson and partner Calvin Washington had difficulty claiming points and fell 6-0 in second doubles.

AS HO FINE-TUNED his finesse, Golembeski, whose nickname derives from what his colleagues feel is his resemblance to a memorable character in the 2007 film “Superbad,” dealt with his own pesky rival. The 17-year-old, an impending senior at the Philadelphia High School for the Creative and Performing Arts, 901 S. Broad St., deems his baseline play his most reliable asset, with smooth strokes looking to set him up for put-aways at the net. Extended rallies between the resident of Front and Christian streets and his foe showed off the former’s gift for angled shots, but he often found himself retreating too much. They produced what one might call a lopsided 6-2 result, although Golembeski, a seven-year NTJL veteran, felt fortunate to contest a championship match. “I made a couple poor decisions, but I’ll continue to work on all aspects of my game,” he said. Golembeski and Ho fell within seconds of each other, cementing the title for Germantown Friends. It looked as if the doubles victory would be the Marconi-based group’s lone great news, as Keophondeth trailed 4-1. “When I went down, I just said to play with more heart,” he said. His self-dialogue worked, as he claimed the final five games to make the outcome more respectable. Their ultimate goal thwarted, the youngsters pondered their summer time together, which will end with today’s celebration ceremony at the center, and thanked Hughes and Fishtown’s Humphries for their tutelage. “They played well,” Hughes said, “and the sportsmanship was great. If we had a little more experience, things might have been different.” Their separation will be brief, as the players will comprise a fall travel team through the United States Tennis Association, a significant step in their maturation. “We had a great group this summer,” Hughes, who also instructed beginners at Barry, said. “The fun’s just beginning, though.” SPR

naware of his teammates’ results Tuesday afternoon at East Falls’ Legacy Youth Tennis and Education Center, Rocky Keophondeth capitalized on his second match point by pounding a forehand that his adversary meekly returned into the net. The blistering groundstroke and many others from the 15-year-old drew applause but could not overcome solid efforts from his peers’ opponents, as representatives from Barry Playground, 18th and Johnston streets, dropped the National Junior Tennis & Learning Intermediate championships to Germantown Friends School, 5-2.

The Passyunk Square resident began the battle at a disadvantage, as he could not field enough players for the four-singles, three-doubles match format. The shortage caused the local bunch to forfeit a doubles duel, leaving the athletes needing to claim four victories from six contests. Their North Region counterparts seemed calmer knowing they had gained a victory without
