n two seasons as a Philadelphia Phillie, right-handed pitcher Roy Halladay has made many eyes marvel over his magnificence. He proved pleasing stomachs matters to him as much as embarrassing hitters Sunday. Before his team’s tilt against the Pittsburgh Pirates, the reigning National League Cy Young Award winner fraternized and took photos with nearly 200 fans outside Citizens Bank Park, 1 Citizens Bank Way, in support of Philabundance, the latest entity to benefit from The See HALLADAY page 8

er respectful and playful nature has made Julia Parmisciano plenty of friends over the last 79 days, but the 13-year-old yearns for nothing more than a reunion with her closest cronies. When doctors at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia find her a heart, she will return to her house on the 2200 block of

South 13th Street to delight in her new existence. Until her helpers deliver the monumental news and the accompanying organ, Julia will rely on her steadfast faith and family to retain her resolute attitude. “Some days are good and some are bad,” she said Friday from her sixth-floor room adorned with prayer cards and posters of her music obsessions, Selena Gomez and the Jonas Brothers.

Neighbor responsibility To the Editor: I am writing in regards to the recent animal hoarding raids in South Philly, which have caused me to reflect on the general lack of both community and civic responsibility apparent in the neighbors who have knowingly allowed these situations to go on for years. On July 26, a home was raided at Percy and Shunk streets and 25 animals were removed from the property (“LoMo ark,� July 28) 14 of which were dead. Some of the neighbors interviewed stated they had been complaining about the horrific odor for five years. Ultimately, the raid had nothing to do with these complaints and more so to do with the fact that when the police responded to a call about the homeowner being naked outside, they observed dead animals from the doorway. The South Philly that I grew up in would not have tolerated a nuisance like this to continue for more than five years. I would think after five weeks/months, it would become blatantly apparent that complaints weren’t working and it was time to explore other options. A house does not smell like death, feces and urine for no reason, and I believe that if this is happening on your block, you have a civic duty to find out what is going on and to help to put an end to it. The smells coming from the rotting animals inside could have just as easily been coming from decomposing humans; what if instead of a hoarding situation, the man was a serial killer keeping living and dead children in filthy cages? The neighbors would be putting their own children at risk as they left them unattended while they wasted their time filing complaints for years. Have we forgotten about last year’s Earp-Street Chihuahua raid in which about 90 dogs were rescued from a feces-filled rowhome, and no thanks to the neighbors of that street who had been complaining for years? There is one common element among the majority of these raids, which is the media reports that “The neighbors have been complaining for years.� It’s time to wake up and realize that many times these complaints don’t work if the homeowner in question is unwilling to allow law enforcement into his/her home. The Pennsylvania Society for Prevention and Cruelty to Animals is not able to get a warrant to enter a premis-

es based on odor, the police obviously doesn’t care and the Public Nuisance Task Force does not consider unbearable smells a public nuisance. Until probable cause requirements are amended, are we expected to twiddle our thumbs while houses of death exist in our neighborhood, sell our houses and move to the suburbs or come together as a community to do what is right and moral to ensure the safety of our fellow living beings? If the police could observe dead animals from the doorway, why couldn’t a neighbor stake out the property and wait for the homeowner to leave, thus catching a glimpse inside and reporting their observations to the PSPCA? An eyewitness account of abuse or neglect is enough for a warrant. What stopped the neighbors from banding together and demanding that the man let them see what was causing their block to stink? Did anyone even think to reach out via the media or Internet? One thing I know for certain is that something like this would never happen on my block because myself and my neighbors would not allow it. Tee Rex South Philadelphia

NFL fans: Winners or losers? To the Editor: Everyone is happy that the football owners and players have agreed on a contract; however, the reality is that the loyal fans have been stooged. Why? Did the negotiators ever consider the fans’ perspective? Absolutely not. The lockout was suddenly settled around July 26 not because of the fans, but pure greed. The large, revenueproducing exhibition games are soon coming up. They charge the fans the same ticket price as a regular game.

fter reading a column two years ago about how great it would be if Amy Winehouse cleaned up, I couldn’t help but shake my head. Most people can’t just flick a switch and change. The British singer, who passed away at 27, was one of those people. Part of what made the gifted singer so great is that she lived what she wrote. When Winehouse sang about not going to rehab, we believed her. She struggled with alcohol and drugs and that was duly noted in her compelling music. Love lost was a common subject for Winehouse, who suffered through an on again-off again relationship with ex-

husband Blake Fielder Civil. Winehouse sounded like an old jazz singer as she sung about love lost in “Back to Black” and “Love Is a Losing Game.” Winehouse was a throwback to old school singers, who were closer to circus freaks than Madison Avenue mouthpieces. The troubled Winehouse couldn’t sell anything except wonderful, deep, moving songs and that should have been enough. She was like a tightrope walker. You always knew there was a chance she could fall and she finally did and it’s terribly sad since who knows what she would have accomplished next? The same can be said for the other members of the ‘27 Club,’ rockers, who passed at the age of 27, such as Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain. Winehouse doesn’t just share the same exit year as those iconic figures. The reason each of those late recording artist’s music touches so many people is that their songs are honest ... SPR

The Special Victims Unit is seeking a suspect who indecently assaulted women in Passyunk Square. By Amanda L. Snyder Review Managing Editor

T

wo sexual assaults occurred within 30 minutes and five blocks of each other with a similar incident happening three months ago that may have been the same perpetrator. A man tried to start a conversation with a 20-year-old on the 1000 block of South Ninth Street at 1 a.m. July 18, Lt. Anthony McFadden, of the Special Victims Unit, said. He then reached around her waist and attemped to place his hand down Police sketch her shorts, but she screamed and ran, as did the perpetrator. As a 19-year-old woman was walking home 30 minutes later, a man grabbed her around the waist and sexually assaulted her on the 1100 block of South 13th Street before fleeing west on Annin Street. For both assaults, the suspect, who appeared to be a laborer or construction worker, was described as a Hispanic man with a dark complexion, age 25 to 30, 5-foot-9, clean shaven and wearing all black clothing, sneakers and a black Adidas hat with white lettering. While police have linked the two assaults together, investigators are working to link a three-month-old sexual assault as well, McFadden said. In the May 15 incident, a man knocked a 28-year-old to the ground and put his hands on her hips on the 900 block of Moore Street, but neighbors heard the assault causing the man to flee east toward Ninth Street, McFadden said. To report information, call Special Victims at 215-685-3251 or visit www.phillypolice.com/forms.

A senior citizen was beaten inside his East Passyunk Crossing apartment, which was set on fire in what was deemed arson. The 75-year-old was traveling home on the 2000 block of South 13th Street when an unknown man loitering in front of the threestory building asked if Steve was home at 9:05 a.m. July 28, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The tenant informed him that Steve had moved out

a few months ago. The man then requested a cigarette, which the resident agreed to give, but as he opened his door, the unknown man forced his way into the apartment. He pushed the elderly man on the bed in the living room of the dwelling, pointed a gun at his face and demanded cash, Tolliver said. The man realized it was fake due to its obstructed barrel and called the man out for it. He responded with “this isn’t fake” as he pulled a pipe from his pocket and smacked the man repeatedly with the object. The elder man pulled a knife from under his pillow and stabbed the man in the upper back and chased him out the front door. The offender fled reversing a black, possibly Ford, coupe with a Pennsylvania license plate that began with “HDY” south on 13th Street and drove west on Snyder Avenue. The victim, who had severe contusions on his left arm and a laceration to his head, was transported to Methodist Hospital where he received six staples to his head, Tolliver said. The pipe and knife were recovered at the scene, Tolliver said. The suspect was described as white, possibly Italian, with a tan complexion, age 35, 5-foot-7, 170 pounds, clean shaven, with black hair and wearing a black, light jacket and jeans. The following day at 1:42 p.m., police responded to firefighters extinguishing a blaze at the same location, Tolliver said. The fire marshal categorized the fire as an arson originating at the front door with a flammable liquid, which caused damage to the door, floor and wood frame. Police have not yet linked the fire and the assault. To report information, call South Detectives’ tip line at 215-685-1635 or visit www.phillypolice.com/forms.

Sex rejection A woman’s skin was peeling off after her Passyunk Square roommate allegedly doused her with bleach when she denied his advances. Roberto Soto, 79, of the 1000 block of Washington Avenue, allegedly was upset with his 68-year-old roommate at about 9:46 p.m. July 27 and subsequently threw bleach down her back as she was lying on her bed because she did not want to have intercourse with him, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The bleach caused her shirt to stick to her skin and peeled off a layer as she tried to


Police remove the garment. She was admitted in stable condition to Pennsylvania Hospital where police found her screaming at Soto, Tolliver said. Soto was arrested at the hospital and charged with aggravated and simple assaults, possession of an instrument of crime and recklessly endangering another person.

Man down Three bullets resulted in a man’s death early yesterday. A 25-year-old, whose name was not released as of press time, was struck once each in the stomach, chest and face at 2:04 a.m. at 21st and Mifflin streets, Officer Jill Russell of the Police Public Affairs Unit said. The man was pronounced dead 11 minutes later at the scene. Police did not have any suspects or a motive at press time.

A serial bank robber is believed to be responsible for another area heist. An unknown man strolled inside Sovereign Bank, 2701 S. 10th St., at noon July 27 and handed the teller a note with “follow instructions — give all loose 100s and 50s. No dye pack or I will shoot” written on it, Detective Danielle TolJohn Digman liver of South Detective Division said. The man fled south on 10th with $5,400. The FBI believes the man to be John Digman, 48, of Kensington, FBI spokesman J.J. Klaver said. Digman was indicted for four bank robberies and is suspected of committing four more that include Sovereign and a July 22 heist at Prudential Savings Bank, 238 Moore St. Bensalem Police arrested Digman in Bucks County where he was staying in a motel July 31, Klaver said.

A couple was convicted Tuesday of robbing a South Street jewelry store and leaving their son at the crime scene. John Benson, 48, of Northeast Philly, was found guilty of attempted murder of the first degree, aggravated assault, criminal conspiracy engaging robbery and robbery while he and Sheakia Stubbs, 32, of West Philly, were John Benson convicted of retail theft, criminal conspiracy engaging retail theft and endangering the welfare of a child, according to court records. The couple was looking at rings with their then-4-year-old son at Platnium & Ice Jewelry, 621 South St., Sheakia Stubbs at 3 p.m. Feb. 27, 2010 when Benson began to haggle with the 34-year-old owner, according to police at the time of the incident. Stubbs exited the establishment and held the door open for Benson who dropped a ring behind the counter and swiped a tray of 15 engagement rings valued at about $60,000 from the open display case. The rings were not recovered, Assistant District Attorney Thomas Lipscomb said. The owner followed the fleeing family when Benson is believed to have told Stubbs, “Go get the gun from the car. I’m going to shoot this ... right here,” according to police. During the chase, Benson slashed the owner’s neck, which required 10 stitches, and fled leaving the toddler behind. “[The victim] even after this kid’s father had tried to kill him was a descent enough human being to grab this kid and take him to the South Street Mini Station. … The guy has children of his own, so I think it really bothered him,” Lipscomb said yesterday of the boy who is now 5 and under the care of Stubbs’ brother. Their sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 21. A prior violent conviction for Benson results in a minimum jail sentence of 10 to 20 years, Lipscomb said. However, he could land a 20- to 40-year jail sentence for attempted murder plus additional years for the other charges. Stubbs sentence is expected to be much smaller. SPR

HOPE FOR JULIA continued from page 1 months old,” mother Grace Parmisciano said of her youngest of three children that she shares with her husband Francesco. The matriarch revealed Julia had enjoyed stable health ever since, though her condition could cause life-threatening electrical activity disturbances, or arrhythmias. “She had lived a normal life,”Grace Parmisciano said of time that included basketball, cheerleading, soccer and volleyball duties at Epiphany and three years learning the guitar on her own. Transplant talk began right after the diagnosis, but no consensus emerged, so Julia received regular echocardiograms and electrocardiograms to monitor her cardiac tissue, valve function and electrical output. Rather than succumbing to sadness, she sought to see each day’s promise. “I wanted to do things,” she said before preparing to take one of the seven medicines she ingests daily. Fulfilling her fancy yielded fun, but also fatigue and shortness of breath. Her mother learned years ago that one-third of dilated cardiomyopathy patients will require transplants. With Julia’s minimal complications,Grace Parmisciano thought her daughter would remain in the majority. Because of the possibility of her experiencing dangerous arrhythmias, Julia must remain at the hospital and draw comfort from knowing her 1A status places her at the top of the transplant list. “We just desire normalcy again,” Grace Parmisciano said while seated on the couch that doubles as her bed each night. Julia has done her best to be a great example of resolve by interacting with friends, many of whom visit Tuesdays to watch her favorite show, “Pretty Little Liars,” working to sustain her strength through physical therapy and adding keyboard lessons to complement her guitar playing prowess. Even more of a semblance of the familiar will arrive when Dr. Beth Kaufman can tell Julia she has a gift for her. “Weight and blood type determine matches,” Kaufman, medical director of the Cardiomyopathy and Heart Failure Program, said. She had planned to see Julia as an outpatient before the school incident necessitated a more involved relationship. Kaufman revealed that a child’s heart will best serve Julia and that the orthotopic procedure, through which doctors will insert the donor heart into her left atrium after removing her damaged organ, would begin within 24 hours of securing a match. According to the American Red Cross, A positive blood, Julia’s type, is the second most common, leading to extra hope within the Parmisciano family. “Her age will also help her survival rate,”

Kaufman said, with the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute concluding the 10-year survival rate hovers around 50 percent, the 20-year mark stands at 16 percent and the figure on recipients who can approximate their normal lifestyles approaches 90 percent. “We’re just looking to take one day at a time,” Grace Parmisciano said. JULIA POSSESSES THE patience of a saint, and she calls on numerous heavenly dwellers for assistance. “I pray for a new heart every day,” she said while sitting on her bed and gazing toward a card of St. Pio of Pietrelcina, a figure she admires so much that she took “Pia” as her confirmation name. Doctors have no timeline by which she needs to acquire her new heart, but her placement at the top of the recipient list has led her family to become even more reverent toward their creator. “Our faith in God gets us through each day,”Grace Parmisciano said. Belief especially aids Julia, who has had many moments when she has wondered why she has this fate. “I become sad sometimes, but most days are good,” she said. Family friends started the Hope for Julia Fund, with the aim of helping to cover the medical expenses July 26. Her constant focus on Julia has kept Grace Parmisciano from having an estimation of the debt and an idea on her insurance’s coverage, but www.transplantliving.org notes the typical first-year expenses average $787,700. As mid-afternoon approached, Julia became eager to explore her surroundings. She cannot leave the floor without a nurse, who must bring a portable defibrillator and a heart monitor. For the last three weeks, she has used The Voice, a multimedia center where young patients can partake in activities related to radio, television and new media. They may broadcast as if disc jockeys, watch live artist performances or interview celebrities on closed-circuit television. The center came as a gift from The Ryan Seacrest Foundation, named after the popular “American Idol” host, who performed the ribbon-cutting July 15 in CHOP’s Colket Atrium. He joined with Gomez, the 19-year-old star whose three studio albums have appeared in the top-10 on Billboard Magazine’s Billboard 200 chart, for the first broadcast, with Julia to the singer’s left. “I was so excited to see Selena,” Julia said. The budding musician enjoys playing Gomez’s tunes, along with Taylor Swift’s

offerings and the Jonas Brothers’ creations, so taking out her acoustic guitar to join Gomez for a rendition of “Who Says” gave Julia a two-minute smile and a permanent memory, as her idol signed her instrument. Julia has made many friends among the staff members and patients but pines for her return to South Philadelphia. Doctors will monitor her constantly when she has her new heart, and she will need to wait three months to resume her schooling. “What I miss most is not being able to interact with my friends the way I want to,” she said. After-school outings are the last fun endeavors she recalls, so she is eager to take a much-deserved vacation with family and friends, if schedules allow, once she trades her hospital space for her regular room.

“I look at my daughter, and I realize I’m wrong,” Grace Parmisciano said. “I used to think I was weak, and now I know I’m not.” Many people yearn for large objects such as cars and houses. Julia wants an item that averages between 9 and 12 ounces. “I’m homesick,” she said. “I am missing so much.” SPR For more information on the fund, visit www.hopeforjulia.org.

HALLADAY

continued from page 1 Halladay Family Foundation. Eager contributors to the Phans Feeding Families initiative brought so many donations that Philabundance, 3616 S. Galloway St., filled its 26 boxes by the midpoint of the two-hour event, Phillies’ spokeswoman Deb Rinaldi said. The guests received information on the foundation, a commemorative image from Halladay’s May 29, 2010 perfect game and a Phans Feeding Families pin. The final item has proven popular online and at the stadium, as fans have bought more than 4,000 pins, with each $5 purchase helping the 27-yearold Philabundance to buy 10 meals. Halladay jerseys and T-shirts made apparent the fans’ love of the Colorado native who aligned with Philabundance, the region’s largest hunger relief organization, shortly after his Dec. 15, ’09 trade from the Toronto Blue Jays. The supporters feasted on traditional ballpark fare before being able to let their mouths focus on offering pleasantries to their hero. Another icon, former catcher Darren Daulton mingled with the crowd, doling out autographs and receiving kudos for his 17 years with the organization. A special invitee, the three-time All-Star revealed a desire to join Halladay as a Philabundance spokesman. A shade after midday, the 6-foot-6 hurler entered the tent area. He towered over the participants, allowing his literal size to serve as a great complement to his figurative status as a giant humanitarian. As a Blue Jay, he joined with his wife Brandy to contribute to The Daily Bread Food Bank. Charitable streaks inspired them to develop a foundation that addresses whatever causes appeal to their sensibilities. The one-year-old creation has thus far helped families of sick children through the Doc’s Box program, chemotherapy patients through the Ryan’s Rally Caps endeavor and horses courtesy of the Safe Stalls undertaking. “He is our favorite, along with [catcher] Carlos Ruiz,” Linda Chavez said as Halladay started to flash his enviable smile for group shots. Natives of New Mexico, she and husband Victor moved to Montgomery County four years ago and have nurtured an intense love of the Phillies. “We are obsessed,” Linda Chavez said shortly before she and her mate posed with Halladay. “The team has great camaraderie, chemistry and class,” Victor Chavez, the winner of the day’s first prize, a team bag, said. The two became aware of Phans Feeding Families through a public service announcement in which Halladay declares that 900,000 people, a figure that

The Phillie Phanatic helped to encourage the nine tossers of the ceremonial first pitches. The hurlers, employees of some of the Phillies’ sponsors, symbolized those at risk of hunger in the Delaware Valley. P h o t o b y N a n c y D av i s - M y e r s

Philabundance’s president and executive director Bill Clark said is a demographic estimate from the federal government, are at risk of hunger in the Delaware Valley. Citizens Bank, Philabundance and the Phillies gathered June 30 to announce their union to combat that total. Philabundance received $50,000 of Citizens’ $133,000 in donations to nonprofit organizations, and the team launched a food drive that included offerings before Sunday’s and July 10’s contests. The Chavezes gave two bags of goodies, including the always-coveted staples peanut butter and jelly, helping the organizations to amass more than five tons of food and enabling Philabundance to provide more than 190,000 meals. “What would our lives be like without the Phillies?” Victor Chavez asked. “We had to help.” DONNING A PHANS Feeding Families pin, Halladay welcomed outstretched hands and thanked the fans. Managing the groups seemed more difficult for the photogenic Phil than taking care of the Pirates Friday, as many fans appeared reluctant to have their time with him end. His right arm long ago earned their admiration, so Sunday gave them chances to laud his heart, too. “Each time I take the mound, I experience the tremendous support of Phillies fans,” he said in a statement. “To see fans give the same level of passion to help those

in need is why Phillies fans are the best in baseball.” Halladay would receive many votes as the best pitcher in baseball, but it is his pitching in that has strengthened his reputation in the eyes of Clark. “We thought it would be great to tie the goodwill of the organizations together,” he said of the partnership. Philabundance began its relationship with the Phillies several years ago through former first baseman Jim Thome. The company works with the city’s other sports teams, but Clark said he sees the union with the Phillies as the strongest. “Over the last two years, the need for food has increased by 60 percent, but the availability has declined by 20 percent,” he said, adding that seasonality affects the nutrition situation, as children who had depended on their schools for breakfast and lunch must look to their guardians exclusively in the summer. Families continue to stretch their funds to provide quality nourishment, so his seven programs help to ease the dilemmas of 65,000 people per week in five Pennsylvania and four New Jersey counties, with at least 60 percent of the assistance going to Philadelphia proper. “It’s great to have Roy and Brandy helping us,” he said of the duo. “What better organization is there to partner with at this time of year than the Phillies? They own the summer.”

Clark noted Philabundance is able to provide a meal for around 50 cents and estimated the tent party’s admission fee would bring in around $11,000. Donations to his organization also came from SEPTA riders, who Sunday dropped off items at the Broad Street Line’s AT&T Station, Broad Street and Pattison Avenue. Their generosity built upon the transit system’s June initiative through which passengers deposited provisions at 50 stations. All of the efforts will go toward helping Philabundance to top last year’s distribution of 21 million pounds of food. The tent partygoers received game tickets, so they earned a chance to see Clark and eight other dignitaries throw out ceremonial first pitches. Each hurler represented 100,000 of the 900,000 needy individuals and earned applause from the Phillie Phanatic. “The fans have done a phenomenal job showing their compassion for the less fortunate,” Rinaldi, a 10-year employee said of their acceptance of the message that proper nutrition is not a privilege. “We are fortunate to have so much help.” SPR For more information on Phans Feeding Families, visit www.philabundance.org/ feedingfamilies.

uying tickets just got a little bit easier thanks to the help of Frank Panko and wife Missy. The Passyunk Square couple and regular Phillies games attendees launched a site where fans across the globe can give people a glimpse of the view from each seat. “We go to a lot of Phillies games, baseball games, downtown. We ran into the problem when we wanted to buy season tickets. It was hard to figure out where we wanted to sit and what sections,” Panko, 36, said. “You can go to the actual Phillies site and they have photos, but it’s one photo and it doesn’t give a good interpretation of what it’s like to be there.” Panko’s solution was aviewfrommyseat. com, a website where fans everywhere can share photos taken from their seats at sporting events, concerts and the like. It went live a year ago and people started uploading photos the same day, Panko said.


Lifestyles “When we’d go to a game, we noticed how many people were taking photos around the stadium,” the Ninth-and-Wharton-streets resident said. “What if we can give people who are already taking photos with their camera phones a way to redisperse them back out again? We did it as an experiment to see how many people would do it. Then we made it an app.” With an Android application — the main way people are sharing the photos — and an iPhone application in the works, the site currently boasts photos from the majority of North American venues, with Citizens Bank Park, 1 Citizen’s Bank Way, the most uploaded site. All it takes is an e-mail address to sign up and start sharing. “It’s still a long way from [what we want it to be]. We now have multiple photos from every section from Citizens Bank Park,” Panko said. “I’m hoping to let it grow and try and work something out with a ticket company to try and give people who are sharing discounts on tickets to those venues.” Panko and his wife manage the site largely from their mobile phones and Panko said there have only been a few photos he has had to relocate to a different area of the site, as they were not true to the site’s mission. Eventually, Panko hopes the site

will be a way for fans to have a better purchasing experience. “We’re hoping to do more with this in the future, but we are still at the very beginning of it,” he said. “We want to work deals with the ticket agency and I’d like to try and work something out with the venues themselves, advertising at the venues, so more people, while they are there, know about it.”

PANKO HAS BEEN in Philadelphia since 1994 and moved into his Italian Market pad five years ago. The neighborhood has been the perfect pace for the young couple. “My wife, at the time [of our marriage], was living [up] at Federal. We were walking around and it seemed nice and still affordable. [Pub on Passyunk East, 1501 E. Passyunk Ave.,] wasn’t quite here yet, but it was being built,” Panko said. “It was nice to find a neighborhood. Up and down Passyunk there is the feel of really old shops that have still been here for probably decades. It was affordable, but it was going through a lot of growth.” Panko came to Philadelphia to study at Tyler School of Art, graduating in ’98 with a degree in design and painting. He translated his fine arts skills into graphic

design for advertising agencies upon graduation and he found more than he expected on the job. “[My wife and I] met at the job we are at now. We’ve been with this company for about 10 years now,” Panko said of his day job designing for the Web. “I’ve been drawing my whole life — middle school and high school. I thought I would go into some kind of art career, design or tech. I’m very good with numbers, so essentially, when it comes to design, I like writing code, writing code that looks pretty in the end.” Painting has become a hobby, but aviewfrommyseat.com takes up the majority of Panko’s non-work hours. Working on the site is a passion project and Panko hopes it will grow into more of a commitment than it is now. “I’m hoping to spend the next three or four months to actually grow it to see if we could get it into a small business so we could hire people. I want to see how far we could take it on our own,” Panko said. “I like where it’s at, but it’s got a ways to go before it’s at where I see it going next.” SPR Comment at news/lifestyles.

Bellow’s theory

T

Lady lover Jacob (Ryan Gosling) offers his dating guidance to Cal (Steve Carell), a broken-hearted recent divorcee.

By R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer

T

here’s a point in “Crazy, Stupid, Love” when reformed schlub Cal (Steve Carell) phones his ladykilling GQ savior, Jake (Ryan Gosling), after a second-act friendship hiatus. So starkly divided are these two men’s personal stories that it truly feels like one movie is checking in on another. With at least three inconveniently-inlove subplots to boot, the film’s overblown ambitions as a romance collage a la “Love Actually” are almost too much to take, until it finally justifies the major schism with a doozy of a climactic twist. But, then, matters erupt into one of the least successful all-roads-converged, comic baringsall in recent memory, and you realize the whole damn thing is as deliberately packaged as a Whitman’s Sampler. And yet, with a stupendous cast and countless moments that are alternately very sweet and very funny, “Crazy, Stupid, Love” has enough greatness of parts to successfully distract you from the failings of the whole. Directed by Glenn Ficara and John Requa (“I Love You Phillip Morris”), and written by Disney regular Dan Fogelman (“Cars,” “Bolt”), it fittingly feels torn between inspired verve and cartoon contrivance. But few scenes fail to stand up on their own, and you’ll have as hard a time choosing a favorite as you will choosing the best performance. Is it Carell’s turn as Cal, a man with a rocky marriage through whom the star comic shows off his undervalued dramatic chops? The radiant Julianne Moore as Cal’s wife, a cheating character made uncommonly vivid and sincere? Emma Stone as a reluctant smart gal, who’d suf-

fer from script sidelining if not for the starlet’s incredible spunk? Or how about Gosling as Jake, who’s amazingly magnetic despite being the film’s scapegoat for its own chauvinism? Most will choose the latter, as it showcases Gosling’s hatching as a sex and style god (Jake’s recoiling at the sound of Cal’s velcro wallet is a landmark moment in metrosexuality). What do we ultimately reap from this loaded rom-com? Not profound lessons on how to love, but tips on how to revel in all the small things.

Crazy, Stupid, Love PG-13 Two-and-a-half reels out of four Now playing in area theaters

Recommended Rental Super R Now available

From James Gunn, the guy who brought the gooey camp creep-out “Slither,” comes “Super,” another tongue-in-cheek take on a popular genre. Rainn Wilson plays a downtrodden guy who dons a DIY supersuit and fights crime to remedy his own woes. It’s subversive, cleverly absurdist stuff, with Ellen Page and Kevin Bacon rounding out the supporting cast.

Not crazy about love

SOUTh PHILLY REVIEW I AUGUST 4

here is a Saul Bellow novel (I forget which one. The Internet is silent on its identity, and Saul is no longer around to ask.) where he proposes the theory that Americans are going crazy because of lead in our drinking water. This piece is being written as America prances merrily toward economic disaster. Whether the debt ceiling was raised two days ago or not only determines the depth of the insanity that has us in its grip. Entire nations have gone insane before. The Germans’ acquiescence to Hitler proved as much. And, before you dash off any letters to the editor, I am not comparing America in 2011 to Nazi Germany. However, economic disaster can and does cause more virulent forms of government. Our country proved it is not immune to a mental breakdown when it surfaced in the form of paranoia during the McCarthy era of the 1950s. Is national insanity too harsh a label? What else can we call it when reason deserts us? In the United States of ’11, there are people (many of them send me e-mails), who are dependent on Social Security, Medicare and federal pensions and think government is their enemy. They rally against tax increases, even when those modest increases would help to fund the very programs they depend upon and they themselves will not see their taxes increased. Really, insanity seems almost too tame a word for folks who live in fear of their Medicare being touched as they support the very folks who want to do away with it. This is the essence of the Tea Party. It is not only a lack of logic that has us in its grip, it is the failure to understand simple math. You don’t have to be an economics professor to know you can’t balance the budget without a mix of prudent spending cuts and tax hikes. Since when did modestly raising taxes on wage owners making more than $250,000 a year and taxing corporate jets become cause for hysterical opposition from those most dependent on the government safety net? Yet the Republican/Tea Party is composed of so many who have actually signed a pledge against raising any taxes ever. And incredibly enough, they define closing loopholes or letting a temporary tax cut expire as a tax increase. What is it but insanity when a major political party and its supporters think climate change is a political issue? How crazy do you have to be to think the Environmental Protection Agency is the enemy of the peo-

ple? What sane person would completely stop funding the Federal Aviation Administration without so much as a discussion about it? As the evidence mounts, some of us fall deeper into denial. Is it really the 21st century when we are still debating evolution? How about the image of a Republican presidential debate where none of the candidates could admit a belief in evolution? Can a sequel of “Inherit the Wind” be far behind starring Michele Bachmann as a female version of Fredric March? This time in 21st-century America, Bachmann wins the debate. Don’t tell us we’re descended from monkeys! It is only in a country threatened by creeping insanity that the majority of a major political party could believe America is headed toward socialism. Who thought Herbert Hoover would make a comeback? There is no collective memory. At the end of eight ruinous years of the Bush administration, a surplus was turned into debt by the same political party that so stridently preaches fiscal responsibility in ’11. It was a lack of government oversight on Wall Street that almost pushed us into a depression, not socialistic overregulation. But history is being rewritten because craziness has caused a kind of national amnesia. How could a president who has all but jettisoned the liberal agenda be considered a socialist? How could a president whose administration is populated with the usual icons of free market capitalism be considered an enemy of capitalism? How could a president who rescued the auto industry and the banks be a threat to the American system? The answer can only be found in the craziness that grips too many of us. What is it but national insanity that forces a president to reveal his birth certificate to prove he is an U.S. citizen? Even now, about 25 percent of folks who identify as Republicans remain unconvinced. There is not enough evidence to prove to them that there is not some kind of vast conspiracy behind the rise of Barack Obama. Even if he is a citizen, then his thinking process is not rooted in the notion of American exceptionalism because he had too much exposure to foreign lands. He is a foreigner even if he is not foreign. To some, there is a good possibility he is the anti-Christ. There are already strong rumors that if the president wins reelection in ’12, his opponents will back a call to impeach him. Crazy people do not really believe in the legitimacy of elections when those elections don’t echo their own opinions. In the minds of the insane, only their vote is authentic. Impeachment becomes a tool, not to nullify democracy, but to implement democracy. If Bellow were around, he would advise that we test our drinking water for lead poisoning. At least that would explain the craziness that has us in its grip. SPR

Karen’s Marinated Strawberries over Pound Cake INGREDIENTS:

1 quart of fresh strawberries, hulled and halved 1/3 cup of aged balsamic vinegar 1 to 2 tablespoons of sugar 1/3 cup of cold whipping cream 4 slices of fresh pound cake, 1/2-inch thick 1/3 cup of amaretto liqueur 6 amaretti cookies, crumbled

DIRECTIONS:

In a shallow casserole dish, toss the strawberries and vinegar and leave at room temperature for 20 minutes. Sweeten with the sugar.

In a medium bowl, beat the cream with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Cover and chill — up to four hours — until ready to use. Place one slice of the cake on each of the four plates. Brush with the amaretto, spoon on the strawberry mixture and top with a dollop of the whipped cream. Sprinkle with the cookie crumbs and serve.

Just a brunch time stroll away from the Italian Market, Monsu brings the tastes of Sicilian cuisine to South Philly. The menu includes fresh focaccia to pancakes whirled with ricotta cheese. S ta f f P h o t o b y G r e g B e z a n i s

filled with mushrooms, provolone cheese and roasted peppers. Bingo! We hit the jackpot. Chef Nihad Hajdarhodzic is an expert in preparing the perfect omelet. It was pure deep yellow on the outside and creamy inside. There was not one speck of brown or overcooked spot on this masterpiece. Oven-roasted potatoes came with the dish. I called Hajdarhodzic to thank him for taking the time to write down the charcuterie for me. I discovered he is 26 years old, from Bosnia and arrived in Philadelphia six years ago to study culinary arts at Drexel University. We chatted about his knowledge of Sicilian cuisine and some of the dishes he is placing on the menu. He arrived at Monsu two-and-a-half months ago. “I bake lasagna with cinnamon and co-

coa,” he said. “Sicilian dishes are often sweet and sour. I use raisins, almonds, pistachio nuts and hazelnuts in some of my dishes. I make a swordfish dish with raisins and Marsala.” Sicilian food reflects Arabic, Jewish and French influences. Now this talented young man is placing his influence on each tasty dish. Three tips of the toque to Monsu. SPR

fast ($13) as a starter. Our eye-appealing large white plates contained tuma persa, pecorino pepatto, a slightly salty Sicilian cheese studded with black peppercorns, mozzarella di bufalla, mild coppa, Pepperoni Siciliana and mortedella neopoutana. Sweet strawberry slices and thinlysliced Granny Smith apples also were on the plate. A bit of honey was placed near the tuma persa. Honey is a top ingredient in Sicilian cuisine. The chef came over to us to explain the order in which to enjoy the meats and cheeses. I thought it much like a wine tasting. Go from light to rich. Each ingredient wowed me. I loved the honey with the hard tuma persa. We scraped our plates clean and I asked our server if the chef would kindly write down the names of each meat and cheese so I could buy some to take home. He kindly did so. A croissant came with the charcuterie but I preferred the homemade focaccia. As soon as I saw the description of the pancakes ($11) I knew I would be transported into a Sicilian nona’s kitchen. Three of thee tasty treats were lovingly prepared with semolina flour and ricotta cheeses. I’ve made cottage cheese latkes, but never thought to use the far better and tastier creamier ricotta. I had a taste sensation as soon as I poured some pure maple syrup on top of the cakes and popped a morsel in my mouth. A perfectly grilled sweet Italian sausage came with my brunch. It was crisp and totally free of grease. Edward’s omelet of the day ($11) was

ne of my favorite cookbooks is “Sicilian Home Cooking: Family Recipes from Gangivecchio” by Wanda and Giovanna Tornabene, a mother and daughter team who run their restaurant in a former priory built in 1366 in Sicily. From time to time, I notice a Sicilian dish on a menu in an Italian restaurant, such as meatballs made with raisins or arancini, the tasty little rice balls which are often among the antipasti. Finally, I found an authentic Sicilian right in the Italian Market. Monsu is the brainchild of Peter McAndrews who owns Modo Mio and Paesano’s sandwich shops. I love to go out for Saturday or Sunday brunch. Well, dear, readers, I now add Monsu to my list of best places to brunch. The cash-only BYOB is housed in the former Butcher’s Café. I entered the cool room and a charming man seated me and offered me a glass mug of strong coffee. The restaurant opens at 11 a.m. and I was a tad early. Monsu is Sicilian dialect for monsieur. According to our waiter, Sicilian chefs would go to France, learn and work, and return to their native land. Edward and I glanced over the menu and immediately discovered our brunch could have been served anywhere in Sicily. A server brought us hot-from-the-oven focaccia along with a small dish of extravirgin olive oil with discs of creamy ricotta. I loved the slightly salty crust on top of the bread and spread the cheese on top. We decided to share the Italian break-

Summer crops can make an ideal breakfast, lunch or dinnerr. They’re so sweet and tasty that it helps one forget about the heat wave. By Phyllis Stein-Novack Food Columnist

I

detest the heat and humidity of summer. I am constantly asking “is it October yet?” There are those of you who adore 90-degree days by going to the beach, claiming an inch of sand to set up a chair and taking a dip in the seaweedfilled sea. Not me. Summer means my herb garden is filled with basil, cilantro, Italian parsley, chervil, French tarragon and chives. I do not plant tomatoes because I support local farmers. I buy my fruits and vegetables. Summer is high time for tomatoes, corn, blueberries and the dreaded zucchini. The Jersey blues have been particularly sweet this year. I’ve had luck with seedless watermelon and the small Tuscan melon I discovered at Trader Joe’s. The Garden State also grows ones that are usually big and sweet. My favorite way to prepare white corn is to husk it, rinse it, wrap it in plastic wrap and zap it in the microwave. Slather it with melted butter and I am in vegetable heaven. I could make a meal of corn, tomatoes, a bit of cheese, grains with fresh fruit for dessert. My fridge is filled with two pints of Jersey blueberries, two quarts of strawberries, a seedless watermelon, a few plums and a Tuscan melon. I’m having a field day coming up with tasty concoctions for breakfast, lunch, snacktime and dinner. Stay cool, pump up the air, prepare a pitcher of iced tea and hope the heat breaks soon. I’m an optimist by nature,

but I know this will not happen anytime soon.

Good day, mates

Local chess players scored multiple victories against a Center City lunch crowd. By Joseph Myers R e v i e w S ta f f W r i t e r

D

avid Blocker eagerly awaits his courses in wildlife management and conservation at Delaware Valley College. If chess were a major, the 18-year-old would be better suited to stand before students than to sit among them. The recent graduate of The Academy at Palumbo, 1100 Catharine St., displayed his teeming talent at July 27’s Checkmate Violence Chess in the Summer event at Center City’s Shops at Liberty Place. Over two hours, Blocker and 42 other students matched their minds against one another and the site’s lunch crowd. Members of the seven-year-old Philadelphia Youth Chess Challenge, the board warriors came as guests of the After School Activities Partnerships (ASAP). “We hold more than 30 events per year,” Maria Walker, ASAP’s executive director, said as the first hour concluded. Most involve chess, as the Chess Challenge serves as ASAP’s chief initiative with 313 clubs and 3,700 participants. Formal tournaments comprise most of the gatherings, so the afternoon affair bred a less competitive environment. “We wanted to offer the children an informal chance to pursue their love of the game,” Walker, of Second and Morris streets, said. Geography also factored into maximizing the moments. Flash mobs have caused havoc in Center City numerous times, so,

DVYAA is holding its third annual baseball camp for boys ages 7 to 12. The sessions run from Aug. 15 to 19 and 22 to 26. Call Dante, 856-689-0105, or Dewey, 856-466-3347. DVYAA fall baseball program signups for ages 7 to 9 and 10 to 12 are 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. weekdays at 18th and Johnston streets. Call 215-468-1265.

NEUMANN-GORETTI GIRLS’ SOCCER

The Neumann-Goretti girls’ soccer team is holding tryouts 6 p.m. Aug. 15

in addition to giving the youngsters a social opportunity, the day offered the public chances to reduce perceptions of how constructively Philadelphia’s public and charter school learners use their time outside of their institutions’ walls. “Our students are good kids who want to do the right thing and who want to be involved in positive activities,” Walker said. Her nonprofit began in 2002 to combat violence and idleness. Its website estimates 45,000 children citywide spend at least 20 hours alone after school each week. It also surmises that a dearth of post-school pursuits could contribute to obesity. Though chess is the champion, ASAP offers dance, debate, drama, Scrabble and yoga to another 203 clubs and 2,700 students. Public and charter schools give ASAP more than half of its clubs. Play occurs in those facilities, independent and parochial schools, community and recreation centers, homeless shelters and libraries. Teachers run a majority of the clubs encourage members to feel confident about playing as often as possible. More than 200 participants followed their instructors’ advice by competing in February’s Fourth Annual PECOASAP Checkmate Violence 24-Hour Chess Marathon at Temple University. “The marathon is our biggest way for the students to compete against the public, but this is a great one, too, albeit a little less intense,” Walker said with a laugh. NO CHILD SEEMED shy about moving pieces in hopes of securing and 11 a.m. Aug. 16 and 17 at Seventh and Bigler streets. An informational meeting for players and parents also will be held at SEYAA AA 6 p.m. Aug. 11. Call 215-463-8802.

checkmates. Blocker certainly had the least cause to be tentative. The tutelage for the resident of 11th and Christian streets began at age 2 through his father Butch, an assistant coach for Palumbo’s five-yearold team. The Hawthorne unit enjoyed a fantastic year. It won the High School South Division, finished as the runner-up at March’s league championships at Citizens Bank Park, 1 Citizens Bank Way, and claimed third in the team awards category as a part of the high school non-rated section at May’s Eighth Annual Eagles Youth Partnership Chess Tournament at Lincoln Financial Field, 1020 Pattison Ave. Owning O a calm exterior, Blocker uses u his 16 pieces to reveal the in-

tensity of his interior drive. At January’s 43rd Liberty Bell Open in Center City, he won six of seven matches, with one draw, to claim first place, a $728 prize and 400 points to add to his United States Chess Federation (USCF) rating. He emerged victorious three out of seven times at May’s 2011 National High School Championships in Nashville, Tenn. “My style is logical,” the young man said after scoring his fourth triumph in five games. He could not recall when his ASAP interaction began but expressed happiness with his affiliation, which ended with his June graduation. His schooling will take him to Doylestown, where he will look to start a club. He welcomes all of live’s St. Richard, Holy Spirit, Epiphany, Stella Maris and St. Nicholas parishes are eligible.

Sports moves, especially ones that will involve capturing kings and queens. “I’m looking to raise my rating to between 1,500 and 1,600 by the end of the year,” he said of his current 1,215 standing. Attaining his desired range will give him Class C designation on the USCF’s list, with Senior Master status to kick in when he hits 2,400. Two boys representing Queen Village’s William Meredith School, 725 S. Fifth St., trail Blocker in competitions but could prove to be his equals in terms of dedication and tenacity. “I’ve been playing since I was 4 or 5,” 10-year-old Jacob Wycoff said after his fourth checkmate. Going undefeated pleased him as he used his attacking style to thwart his opponents. While other children feasted on fruit, the resident of the 700 block of South Mildred Street recounted how he devoured his competition with timely moves. “I feel good about beating good players,” Jacob said. This represents his first year with ASAP, and he owes most of his participation to his time at Conshohocken’s Miquon Day Camp, one of its 30 summer clubs operating in schools and camps. His eagerness to defeat good players will receive a boost this fall as he begins the fifth grade at Spring Garden’s Julia R. Masterman

School, whose middle and high schools captured first-place finishes at the Chess League Championships. Jacob will have support from Anthony Mecchi, another former Meredith student who will head to Masterman. “Anthony began dabbling at 5 or 6,” Andrea Mecchi said as her son completed his fourth match. Playing No Stress Chess, with cards to help learners to become familiar with the pieces’ functions, helped the 10-year-old to mature. “This is his first big outing,” Andrea Mecchi said of her son, who also plays at Miquon. The young resident of Eighth and Catharine streets lost his final contest but garnered two victories and worthwhile memories. “I like that the game involves thinking and strategy,” he said, adding that using rooks and pawn promotion to register checkmates enthuses him. The students’ mental maturity impressed Chestnut Hill’s Andy Bonnaffon, who dropped his three games. “All of these kids seem to have mastered the knowledge that chess promotes discipline,” he said. “They certainly showed me I need to work on my strategies.” SPR
