Over the last six months, Public Citizens for Children and Youth (PCCY) has been implementing The Student Health Insurance Enrollment and Renewal Initiative, its plan to ensure that uninsured South Philadelphia high schoolers receive free See HEALTH INSURANCE page 12

he never-ending quest for optimal health is making a summer visit to South Philadelphia. Passersby and residents of the Conswiller B. Pratt Apartments, 3001 Moore St., have had weekly Friday opportunities to satisfy their desires for affordable produce since July 2. Fresh fruits and vegetables greet

their eyes and please their wallets through the Food for Life program, a collaboration between the Philadelphia Housing Authority (PHA) and Center-City based Iovine Brothers Produce & Catering. The five-month-old partnership visits four PHA sites one day a week, with Wednesdays meaning treks to Wilson Park, 2500 Jackson St., and Fridays providing stops at the Greater Grays Ferry Estates, of which the Pratt apartment complex is

a part. At these locations and two North Philadelphia spots, two workers offer an array of goods. The even distribution of fruits and vegetables allows for what one might think will be a brief stay for one or two items to become an extended adventure in being thrifty. “The peaches and nectarines are the most popular items,” Irvin King, formerSee MARKET page 10

Word on the Street

Letters

Is Roy Oswalt going to help the Phillies make the playoffs and why?

Questioning the love

“Yeah, he should he’s a veteran. He was a 20-game winner for a couple of years. He should help them make the playoffs. Hope he can do better than his last start.” Bill Paullin, Second Street and Snyder Avenue

“From what I know about Mr. Oswalt is that he is a top-10 pitcher in the league. I think management made that move because of the Cliff [Lee] trade. They lose games 3-1, 3-2, they get into funks with their hitters ... If they get their bats started, Oswalt is going to be a big contributor.” Kevin Cutler, 13th Street and Snyder Avenue “Yeah, because our starting pitching is weak. We should have kept Cliff Lee. Our run support is killing us, that is the biggest problem. I think we are definitely a top pitching staff right now, though the closer is still a big question.” Anthony Messina, 1400 block of Jackson Street

“Yes I do, but I also think as a team, they are going to make the playoffs because each of them gives their all.” Ann Catania, 1900 block of South Broad Street Interviews by Jermar Perry Photos by Natalie Kellman

To the Editor: Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love, where its intentions were meant for its community to be companionable and furthermore, to serve as a purpose to show friendship and compassion toward one another. As a resident of Philadelphia, to my assurance, it neglects to honor its name, “The City of Brotherly Love.” Philadelphia is not “The City of Brotherly Love.” On an early Sunday evening, my 13-year-old cousin rode his bike cheerfully to Rita’s Water Ice, 20th Street and Oregon Avenue, an often crowded place surrounded by many shopping centers. Unfortunately, four male adolescents on bicycles approached him, forcefully thrusting him to the ground. In addition to breaking his knee, the young teens stole his bike. Why is Philadelphia called “The City of Brotherly Love?” As my cousin lay on the pavement helpless, many around him continued their business. As a result, not one individual attempted to call the police nor did they help him off the ground. He was not even offered so much as a napkin to wipe his blood. In conclusion, Philadelphia is a mockery to the term, “Brotherly Love.” Adjacent to my injured cousin, a lady sat on a bench feeding a baby. Furthermore, she made no effort to do as little as give him her seat. Moreover, it is wondered by myself and those of my family, how the witnesses would feel if it were them or someone they loved in my cousin’s situation? Destinie Campanella South Philadelphia

Sticking it to small businesses To the Editor, Joseph Myers’ excellent article, “Fee-fi-fo-scum,” (July 29) demonstrates the effect of a “soak the rich” mentality in our elected officials. Philadelphia has a checkered political history and it doesn’t surprise me at all that it routinely elects dubious candidates from the same party, all promising to watch out for the little guy while sticking it to the big guy. The city is sending a message to Ms. Ciminera and her colleagues: Congratulations, you are the big guy! You are the employers who provide a

livelihood for thousands of workers. You are the revenue producers who pay taxes on gross receipts, whether or not you turned a profit. You are the street cleaners for your storefronts, sweeping the litter the city doesn’t raise a finger to prevent. You are to be penalized. On the national level, we are creating a hostile climate for our employers and it’s no different in Philly. This is a union town, so we should recognize a strike when we see one. Our employers are hitting the picket line, refusing to hire, grow or operate in an environment where their productivity is badly needed, yet punished by their government. The fact Ms. Ciminera is considering moving her business to New Jersey is striking. But then again, considering the change of leadership in Trenton, she may be on to something. Steve Churchill South Philadelphia

Desired candidate To the Editor: The run of Pennsylvania governors of both parties from way back have been nothing but prizewinners for a seat of money, power, deals and stature for the individuals themselves. The purpose of the office of governor is not to exalt and elevate oneself and friends, interests, fortune and personal schemes and projects. Now again, both parties offer nothing but more picking from the pail. The purpose of the governor is that a citizen is entrusted with power to work diligently on the interests of Pennsylvanians. To do that, the governor must listen with sincere interest and work diligently to discover what the people require. This does not mean what special groups want. That is contrary to the wants of the people. This does not mean what the party wants by using the people’s money and laws to enhance their politics. This does not mean what Washington, D.C. wants to control and to make bribes with the tax money of all the American people. These are the types of governors the parties have been limiting us to. The problems in Pennsylvania go on and on while they attend to their priority concerns. Pennsylvanians shold write in a person for governor whom they have determined to be

moral and honest and caring about the people. They should write in an individual who has demonstrated these characteristics and diligence and is a known and devoted patriot who is not hungry for money and is not a thief and a liar. The parties reject such individuals and do not support them so Pennsylvanians must look beyond the party for a suitable governor to tend to the neglected problems we have with education, which is inferior to American schools of the 1930s, nonenforcement of illegal alien laws, unemployment, high crime rates, an ineffective criminal justice system, wasteful government spending and the high expenses of government.

Out of luck

July 27 ant to start hitting? Fire someone. After letting longtime hitting coach Milt Thompson go last week, the Phillies have enjoyed a five-game streak the likes of which we haven’t seen in months. But was Milt and his hitting policies, that brought us two NLCS titles, a World Series ring and league-leading season RBI totals, really the problem? I’ve always hated the superstitions of baseball — the playoff beards, the lucky jersey/jockstraps/pinky finger, not talking about no-hitters. The fact that Charlie Manuel seems to agree that firing Thompson was nothing more that grasping at straws doesn’t particularly make it any better. Many people find the superstitions (lunacy) of baseball players endearing. Perhaps since I am a bit of an athletic head case myself, I hate a climate and social environment that supports and encourages this sort of play. Especially when it costs a good man his job. SPR

oe is me. It’s been a rough one for the Phils lineup, and somehow they are managing to inch closer to the league-leading Atlanta Braves with almost every game. Long-criticized for keeping their prospects in waiting, the Phillies have a pretty good crop of young talent that may get the chance to show their skills in the bigs as each games seems to see our ranks drop another man down. The much-anticipated Domonic Brown has lived up to his hype as he continues to have strong outings for the Fightins. With Ryan Howard out for an undetermined amount of time, it’s exciting to see who will pop up this week.

Dog down A pit bull was shot three times by a Whitman man after the canine scurried out of the house during a fight. By Amanda L. Snyder R e v i e w S ta f f W r i t e r

A

s a woman’s son tried to escape back inside his home during an altercation, her dog ran outside and was subsequently shot Friday. The 37-year-old woman’s son had a verbal altercation with a few people on the block around 2:30 p.m., Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. Later, some of those same men were hanging out outside on the 2000 block of Dickinson Street again. The man left the house at 5:20 p.m. when the men tried to jump him. The man ran back into the home and the family pit bull raced out of the house, Tolliver said. The man’s mother went outside to retrieve her dog, and Jerrow Rogers, 32, of the 2600 block of South Front Street, allegedly shot the dog three times. The pit bull yelped and retreated back inside the dwelling. When the woman inquired why he shot the dog, he allegedly walked away, Tolliver said. Police responded to the scene at 5:20 p.m. where they found the dog lying inside the home on the living room floor with wounds to its shoulder, Tolliver said. Police recovered ballistic evidence on the block, but did not recover the gun. Police arrested Rogers, who was charged with cruelty to animals, possession of an instrument of crime and firearm violations. Rogers allegedly gave a formal statement to detectives at South Detectives, in which he admitted to killing the dog, Tolliver said Rogers pled guilty to aggravated assault and firearm violations in 1998, according to court records. The dog was transported to the Animal Care and Control Team Shelter, 111 W. Hunting Park Ave., for medical evaluation. However, it was euthanized due to the extent of its injuries, Liz Williamson, director of public relations for the Pennsylvania Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, said.

Dog hoarder charged More than 100 counts of animal cruelty were filed against a Passyunk Square woman July 29. The Pennsylvania Society for Preven-

tion of Cruelty to Animals filed 134 summary citations include 43 for lack of veterinary care and 91 for housing animals in unsanitary conditions against Frances Rotunda, 59, of the 700 block of Earp Street, Liz Williamson, director of public relations for the Pennsylvania Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, said. She could face up to a $750 fine and 90 days in jail per charge — totaling up to $100,500 and 33 years and 15 days, respectively. She also may not be permitted to own any animals for an extent of time that would not exceed the maximum jail sentence. PSPCA Humane Law Enforcement officers rescued 85 Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes and two cats along with the remains of two dogs from the home July 14. In the days following the raid, two more cats were found inside the home. For information regarding adopting one of the Chihuahuas, call the PSPCA at 215426-6304, extension 251.

Robber strikes Broad Street again A man is believed to have robbed a third bank — two local and one in the Northeast — within the last two weeks. The man handed a threatening note to the teller at Conestoga Bank, 2444 S. Broad St., 12:57 p.m. Monday and received an undisclosed FBI surveillance video amount of money from Wachovia Bank, before fleeing the bank and heading west on Porter Street, J.J. Klaver, FBI spokesman, said. He was described as white, age 20 to early 30s, 5-foot-5, thin to medium build, with a thin beard and a large tattoo on both forearms and wearing a Milwaukee Brewers baseball cap, sunglasses, a gray longsleeve shirt and denim shorts. The same man is believed to have robbed Wachovia Bank, 2221 S. Broad St., July 23 and a Northeast Citizens Bank July 26. To report information, contact the FBI at 215-418-4000.


Police Report

Afternoon shots Shots were fired at four teens after words were exchanged between them and another group in West Passyunk Sunday evening. The teen girls — two age 13, one 14 and one 17 — were on the 2200 block of Snyder Avenue when two teen boys on bicycles and a woman sitting atop of one of the bike’s handlebars rode up to them, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. After a brief verbal argument, the trio rode to the intersection at 22nd Street where one of the men pulled a gun from his waistband and the woman handed the other man a gun from her purse, Tolliver said. The men fired toward the group that ran into a home to escape the gunfire. The shooters fled on the bikes east on Snyder toward 20th Street Police recovered ballistic evidence from the scene, Tolliver said. The first male was described as black, age 16, close-cropped hair, clean shaven and wearing a yellow shirt, tan cargo shorts while the other was described as black, age 18, medium build, long sideburns, and wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans. Both men had small, black or silver guns and were riding dark-colored mountain bikes. The woman was described as black with a light complexion, short, wearing black tights and a gray scarf and carrying a Louis Vuitton handbag. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013.

Matthew Clemmens, 21, was sentenced 30 days in jail for harassment and 30 to 90 days for disorderly conduct, which will run concurrently with the latter sentence, according to court records. Following his incarceration, the Jersey resident will serve two years probation for simple assault. Judge Kevin Dougherty ordered the Cherry Hill, N.J. man to pay $315 in restitution that will be donated to the Police Athletic League of Easton and serve 50 hours of community service, according to the District Attorney’s Office. Clemmens pled guilty May 25 to forcing himself to throw up on an 11-year-old girl, who had attended an April 14 Phillies game with her father, an Easton police captain, and 15-year-old sister.

The man who robbed and attempted to also burglarize a man in Point Breeze was arrested Sunday afternoon. Tracey Thomas, 20, of the 1200 block of South 22nd Street, was believed to be responsible for the crimes that occurred July 14, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. Police spotted him on the 2300 block of Gerritt Street jumping in the backseat of a black Dodge, which then drove away, Tolliver said. Police attempted to pull the vehicle over, but the driver did not obey. After calling for backup, police successfully pulled the car over on the 5600 block of Elliott Street in Southwest Philly. Thomas was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, criminal conspiracy, robbery, theft, firearm violations and related offenses. A 53-year-old was drinking at the bar inside Crab Bar, 1252 S. 21st St., when Thomas allegedly robbed him of $150 and his house keys at gunpoint last month, Tolliver said. Shortly after, he and another entered his home using the keys while another man waited in a Buick station wagon, Tolliver

She immediately contacted his office to set up a meeting on her Point Breeze block. “I did right [it] away because I know people here don’t know what his role is as state representative,” the resident of the 1600 block of South 23rd Street said prior to the July 29 meeting. She soon informed residents on surrounding blocks including on Tasker, Fernon and Morris streets. She hoped neighbors would learn how his office could assist them in addition to being able to recognize the fellow Point Breeze resident. “If they see him on the street, they don’t know who he is,” Gabbadon said of some of her fellow residents. Although many do recognize Johnson, who grew up at 18th and Reed streets and still lives in Point Breeze, as periodically people would walk or drive pass the meeting — held outside the Greater Bethlehem Temple, 23rd and Tasker streets — and say hello. And he recognized some in return waving and greeting them as they passed by. The informal, yet informative, hour-long Summer Nights Constituent Block Meeting may have begun with only a few locals, but with people walking by stopping to hear a few words, the attendance grew to as high as 15. “A lot of times as an elected official, we make the decisions based on what we think the community needs, but we think it’s as equally important to get community input on what the issues are,” he said noting his office mailed information regarding the opportunity to invite him to South and Southwest Philly blocks throughout the summer. “ …The important aspect of these meetings is that you’ll have that one-on-one opportunity to develop relationships with my staff members, as well as to ask me some things personally yourself,” he said. Johnie Maebell, block captain of the 1600 block of South 23rd Street, was pleased Johnson took the time out to come help the residents voice their concerns.

Residents of the 1600 block of South 23rd Street and surrounding blocks invited state Rep. Kenyatta Johnson, left, to visit their neighborhood July 29. P h o t o b y N ata l i e K e l l e m

“It was nice he came out and talked to us and the neighborhood,” she said. The discussion remained civil and helped Gabbadon expand the community’s outreach by meeting new neighbors, she said. “We did have a quality meeting,” Gabbadon said. “Sometimes we have people hollering and screaming.” RESIDENTS HAD VARIOUS concerns ranging from blight to obtaining birth certificates to crime. Johnson began with an overview of what he can directly help with as a state official such as education, unemployment, welfare and other state-related problems. “However, as an elected official, I get the phone call primarily for just about any and everything,” he said. “We have a don’t-turn-away policy in my office, which basically means if you call our office needing help with an L&I issue, we will still look into it. There are also times we will refer you to the Council President [Anna Verna’s] office to make sure [City Council members] are doing their job that they’re elected to do because they have more power and jurisdiction over the is-

sue than I do because it’s city related. “So primarily when it comes to state issues versus city issues, we try to work in our own lanes because we know the more effective you are is based upon what you have jurisdiction over.” He even offered to have a staff member come to residents as a part of his office’s mobile constituent services program. Even though he cannot guarantee the desired outcome of a situation, he vowed his staff would advocate for residents. He will even meet personally with them. “If you come to the office and I’m there, I’ll sit down and I’ll meet you right then and there, you don’t have to wait. Other than that, if I’m in between Harrisburg and home, I’ll have someone, one of my staff [members] put you on my schedule, so we can sit down and meet. “Probably one of my weaknesses as an elected official is I’m always giving out my cell phone number,” he said with a laugh. “The reason why I give out my cell phone number is just the same as I’m out here this evening is just because one of the things I believe strongly is having a personal relationship with individuals that

I’m advocating. So I don’t ever want you to feel like there’s a barrier when it comes to accessibility when you’re trying to get support from me.” “You can help me get a job?” an 18-year-old asked from the backseat of a van that pulled up to listen to a portion of the meeting. Johnson invited the teen to his office where his staff would point him in the right direction with various job programs. Gabbadon inquired what they could do to prevent a takeout seafood place from opening on the 1600 block of South 23rd Street. Previously, there was a water ice stand that brought an undesired crowd to the neighborhood, she said. The block has already spent $300 on an appeal for a zoning hearing that was held yesterday after press time. “We don’t need that,” she told Johnson. “We have enough killings and shootings to last us a lifetime.” Another resident brought up the issue of a nearby abandoned home at 24th and Tasker streets. “Because it’s a city issue up front you have to call 311,” Deborah Hopkins, Johnson’s legislative assistant, said. “311 will give you a claim number. When I call back to the city officials, if we don’t have that claim number, you don’t have proof that it’s been reported.” Now with an extensive list of issues, Hopkins and other staff members will follow up with the concerns presented at the meeting and direct residents, Johnson said. And this meeting was only the first of many to come with the 2000 block of Mifflin Street in Point Breeze set for 6:30 p.m. tonight and the 700 block of South Fawn Street in Hawthorne scheduled for 6 p.m. Aug. 16. “It’s allowing me and my staff to get direct feedback from my constituents,” Johnson said of what he called a very successful meeting. “They’ll give me direct input of what is going on in all their communities. This is a great way to organize and mobilize the residents to take ownership of the direction of our neighborhood.” SPR To set up a block meeting with state Rep. Kenyatta Johnson’s office, call 215-952-3378. Contact Staff Writer Amanda Snyder at asnyder@southphillyreview.com or ext. 117. Comment at www.southphillyreview.com/news/features.

Going brown

Local firehouses have eliminated select day or night shifts as a result of budget cuts. By Amanda L. Snyder R e v i e w S ta f f W r i t e r

T

he Philadelphia Fire Department has begun brown outs, which include three engines locally. “Rest assured that we have not closed any firehouses nor did we lay off any of our firefighters and the department will continue to respond to your call and tend to any and every emergency that may arise in an urgent and timely manner,” Fire Commissioner Lloyd Ayers said in a press release. The “rolling brown outs” kicked off at 8 a.m. Monday with three engines or ladders closed during the 10-hour day shift and three more shuttered for the 14-hour night shift. Engine 24, 1200 S. 20th St., did not operate 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday while Engine 3, 200-10 Washington Ave., will be shut down for the same duration today and Engine 53, 414-16 Snyder Ave., will not operate 6 p.m. to 8 a.m. Aug. 13. The brown outs are to help eliminate

overtime allowing the department to shuffle workers. “You’re still scheduled to work, but I’ll be detailed somewhere else in the city,” said a firefighter with a local affected company, who did not wish to be named in fear of retribution. “Someone might be on vacation in the Northeast and they’ll send me up there.” The Fire Department is already skimping by. In South Philly, Ladder 11, 1357 S. 12th St., and Engine 1, 711-23 S. Broad St., were shut down as the result of fall 2008 budget cuts. Last summer, Medic 11, 2600 S. 13th St., and Medic 35, 711-23 S. Broad St., were slated to swap hours — 11 to 12hour and 35 to 24-hour operation — before resident outrage halted the switch. Effective Saturday, three local medic’s hours and services were changed, according to a memorandum from Ayers to employees. Both Medic 35 and Medic 14B, 1200 S. 20th St., became a 24-hour units

with the former switching from advanced to basic life support and the latter upgrading to advanced. Medic 21, 601-09 South St., formerly a full-time advanced unit, will cut its night shift hours. “It just seems like our area is getting hit more than any other area,” the source said. THE PLAN TO cut spending for the Fire Department came after City Council passed a $3.85 billion budget, which Mayor Michael Nutter’s administration deemed to not leave a large enough surplus. Now surrounding fire companies Fire truck sirens at Point Breeze’s Engine 24 will have to cover the browned out were silent during Monday’s day shift as part areas prolonged response times, of the deparments scheduled brown outs.

MARKET continued from page 1 ly of Sixth and McKean streets, said last week, the fifth of operation. The 25-yearold worker joins with Abeer El-Zaher, 16, each week to peddle the staples of any sound diet. The two dole out that mixture from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. “Most days we stay until 4:30,” King said. “The times are great for me,” Sadiq Brown, of the 2900 block of Moore Street, added. “I work at night, so I grab some fruit for a snack. Everything is so convenient.” King and El-Zaher received their positions through Iovine Brothers and will continue to make sales and friends through at least September. “We do well here and have met some interesting people,” El-Zaher, a PHA resident, said of the Grays Ferry location, which is situated among 40 acres encompassing 554 units. Most of those friends live in the apartments located just a few yards from King and El-Zaher’s tented area. Those spaces comprise 72 units and house about 120 people, many of whom are elderly, on fixed incomes and eager to be able to walk only a short distance for their sus-

tenance. Last week, Alice Sheldon, one of the building’s tenants, discussed Jersey tomatoes, which she and King said many people assume are rotten because of their distinctive rough look. “I come here every week,” Sheldon said. “Coming here eliminates the produce part of my shopping trips.” FRIDAY’S TEMPERATURES DID not reach the high 90s like those of other days last month, a fact that seemed to worry King slightly. “I don’t know why, but the hotter it is, the better we do,” the North Philadelphia resident said. Though the sun went easy on everyone, business began to increase around noon. “This food is always fresh. I shop at Pathmark, too, but I love how reasonable these prices are,” Corinthia Dandy, a fiveyear resident of the building, said while grabbing a huge cabbage and collard greens. “I’m going to split the cabbage with a neighbor and make the greens in a couple days.” “I’m coming over,” King interrupted with a laugh. He and El-Zaher consistently replenish their supply of nearly 30 fruits and vegetables, which is good news for resident

Catherine Smith, who bought three bags of apples. “If I got money, I spend it on good stuff,” the nine-year occupant said. Despite the uniformity of her purchase, Smith commended the presence of the stand. “I like a mixture of everything in life,” she said. “These guys give me that.” Convenience motivated Iovine Brothers co-owner Vinnie Iovine and PHA Executive Director Carl Greene when they met in late winter. “Vinnie and Mr. Greene discussed their ideas at a gym one day,” Billy Mohollen, a manager at the Reading Terminal operation, which began selling produce in 1989 and catering in 2000, said. “They threw around different locations, and Mr. Greene picked Grays Ferry as one of the sites.” With Green at the helm, the PHA operates as the nation’s fourth largest public housing authority, serving more than 81,000 residents. In ’04, it introduced the Estates on grounds that used to be the Tasker Homes. The Food for Life program is its latest improvement venture, and coupling with Iovine Brothers has born immediate results. “They love us,” Mohollen said of those who visit the quartet of stands.

Customers can pay with cash; food stamps; Women, Infants and Children (WIC) checks; or credit, debit and Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards. Though the program runs through September, PHA spokesman Kirk Dorn noted an extension is likely. “If we continue to see the strong response and positive feedback from the community and continued effectiveness of the training for residents employed in the program, it is likely we would extend,” he said. The success of the four sites could lead to expansion of services to other locales. Though Dorn noted it is too early to predict how many additional sites and which PHA communities will join the current ones, he relishes the chance to enhance as many people as he can. “We want the opportunity to hire and train more residents, and we can only do that by opening more locations,” he said. More locations would mean more work for Iovine Brothers, but welcomes the extra exertion. “If we had the chance, we’d drive to every neighborhood,” Mohollen said.

HEALTH INSURANCE continued from page 1 or low-cost assistance. The summer months have intensified the organization’s outreach to the parents and guardians of the students attending Edward W. Bok Technical High School, 1901 S. Ninth St.; Horace Furness High School, 1900 S. Third St.; and South Philadelphia High School, 2101 S. Broad St. The combined enrollment of the schools approaches 2,800, and PCCY, 1709 Benjamin Franklin Pkwy., wants to enroll the majority of the uninsured students into either CHIP [Children’s Health Insurance Program] or Medicaid by next February. To do so, the organization, which next year will celebrate 30 years of advocacy for the children of Southeastern Pennsylvania, has instituted a number of means to sign up at least 60 percent of the aforementioned learners. “We are targeting disproportionately uninsured students,” Colleen McCauley, PCCY’s health policy director, said. “Those students are usually older children and children from immigrant populations.” Local high schools fit these criteria. “All along, our goal has been to target South Philadelphia with this initiative,” she said. “It is flexible enough to be adding schools like Prep Charter [1928 Point Breeze Ave.] and GAMP [Girard Academic Music Program, 22nd and Ritner streets], and we can certainly add every child, not just high schoolers, in a family.” Flyers, one of the group’s chief resources, reflect the diversity of the schools’ populations. Each bears PCCY’s number following the message “If a youth in your house needs health insurance” in English, Cambodian, Chinese, Vietnamese, Indonesian, Korean and Spanish. Distribution has taken PCCY to nail salons, Mexican restaurants, Asian eateries, Mummers clubs, community-based organizations and all five of South Philadelphia’s libraries. “People often need to hear stuff at least three times, so we go to places where parents are,” McCauley said. FUNDING CAME THROUGH for PCCY from the Fund for Philadelphia’s Children in February, with outreach beginning shortly afterwards. McCauley noted the additional money allowed the organization to hire an Spanish speaker, as well as develop additional materials. The last few months have helped McCauley and her colleagues to prepare for what they hope will be a busy 2010-’11 school year. The School District of Philadelphia’s summer session ended July 28, and PCCY representatives attended the commencement at the Pennsylvania Convention Center to circulate information. “We are making a summer push. I would have liked to have more children

rolled by now enrolled now, but I am not discour discouraged,” McCauley, who also sent 60 flyers to Southern last week, said. “We have worked closely with Principal [Otis] Hackney [III] since he took over,” she added of the new head of the embattled school whose recent principal, LaGreta Brown, resigned in May amidst investigations on her qualifications. The school has the largest population of the three initiative recipients, so McCauley, who is not aware of how many of the students from the three institutions lack coverage, knows she and her dozen staff members will need to “keep up the drumbeat.” Doing so will mean continued attendance at faculty meetings, increased notifications in churches and more public service announcements. McCauley recently taped a PSA scheduled to run 1:30 p.m. Aug. 21 during WPVI-TV Channel 6’s Puerto Rican Panorama. Lilian Harris, of the 300 block of Christian Street first heard about the initiative during a Bok May graduation/prom meeting. The mother of senior-to-be Jaliyl Alexander, 17, said learning of the insurance could not have come at a more opportune time. “I am most definitely satisfied,” Harris said. “I completed my phone application

within a week of the meeting, and my son’s coverage became effective Sunday. Now, he can go for a physical in time for school.” Once parents and guardians have learned about acquiring insurance for their relatives, they call PCCY to complete a phone application. “Families can do a hard copy application, but most of our applications are done over the phone,” McCauley, who has spent 20 years as a nurse and nine with PCCY, said, adding she and her staff use the interpreatation service Language Line to negate the conversational barriers. “Once people complete their applications, CHIP and Medicaid have 45 days to determine eligibility,” McCauley said. “Following the evaluation period, coverage should kick in relatively quickly.” When calling 215-563-5848, extension 19, callers must answer questions concerning their addresses, the number of people living in a household, social security numbers and monthly incomes. “We have a high percentage of approvals. Nobody makes too much money to receive help,” McCauley said. “Youths can receive assistance up to age 19.” The two primary forms of assistance differ slightly. Medicaid covers families with the lowest incomes for free. CHIP also provides a free product for families with incomes up to 200 percent of the federal poverty level. For a family of two, it would be $29,140, with an incremental increase of $6,545 for each additional person, ac-

cording to the U.S. Department of Health and Hunab Services website. Families with income levels above that have three low-cost sub-CHIP levels, with parents paying an average of $43, $60 and $68 a month per child. Those at and above 300 percent of poverty pay full price, an average of $195 per month per child. With these low cost options, families pay $5 to $15 for visits to a primary care physician, $10 to $25 for a specialist, $6 to $18 for prescriptions and $25 to $50 for emergency room visits. President Barack Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act — scheduled to take full effect by Jan. 1, 2014 — will not significantly alter the coverage the South Philadelphia figures will receive through this initiative. According to a state Department on Insurance study, Philadelphia County includes more than 26,000 uninsured children, the largest amount among Pennsylvania’s 67 counties. “It’s odd that so many people can have nice incomes yet have no access to health insurance,” McCauley said. “We want to provide help, possibly expanding into elementary and middle schools. We want South Philadelphia’s children, youth, parents and guardians to have peace of mind.” SPR For more information, visit www.pccy.org.

f you think nursing is hard, try stand-up comedy. “The truth is, [stand-up comedy] is too much work. You have to write all the material and you have to memorize it and then deliver it as if you never wrote it,” Gloria Donnelly, dean of the College of Nursing and Health Professionals at Drexel University, said. Donnelly, who has her doctorate in human development, balances overseeing 3,200 students, 155 full-time faculty, 70 staff members and a large nurse-run health center. On top of this long list of “to-do”s Donnelly added another interesting item to the mix. The 68-year-old took to the stage at Drexel’s Center City campus May 6 and delivered an hour-and-45-minute comedy routine that touched on everything from escaping the summer heat in the President Movie Theater, formerly at 2308 Snyder Ave., to Esther Williams’ movies. “I thought it will attract a lot of attention. Actually, it did go pretty viral and people would call me and say, ‘What are you doing? Are you out of your mind?” Donnelly said about the night that was to raise money for the Dean’s Emergency Fund. “We met our goal. Actually our goal was $50,000, we raised $65,000.” continued on page 16

A 68-year-old college dean uses the hours of material that come with growing up in West Passyunk for a comedy routine to raise money for nursing students.

LIFESTYLES continued from page 14 The dean that hails from 21st Street and West Passyunk Avenue put pride on the shelf and put herself out there in front of Drexel staff and friends, but made sure the joke was always on her. “I have strict rules for myself with comedy,” Donnelly, who has performed stand-up at conventions twice before her May event, said. “I don’t make fun of other people. I make fun of myself and my family. “I grew up in South Philadelphia and I’m Italian and I have a lot of cousins and relatives and I have a lot of material because of where I grew up and how and who.” With tickets coming in at $250 a piece and heavy-hitting sponsors from around the area driving up the funds raised, Donnelly’s hard work more than paid off. “The endowment, the Dean’s Emergency Fund, it’s for students who have shortterm financial problems, like ‘I cant pay the rent this month,’” Donnelly said. Though the cause was serious the mood and material was light. “I talk about my own personal struggles and all the stupid things we do. Like the first time I joined Weight Watchers and the lecturer looked at me and said, ‘You’ll

never be thin in your whole life,’ so I quit in three weeks,” Donnelly said. “The material I do, people can relate to. They are kind of stupid, fun things that we all can relate to.” DONNELLY GREW UP in the West Passyunk neighborhood and attended St. Edmond’s, formerly at 23rd and Mifflin streets, and then St. Maria Goretti High School, 1736 S. 10th St. Donnelly had a strong role model in an aunt, who inspired her to a future career path. “I guess I was 3, my mother’s sister was an army nurse in the Second World War and I think she was a big influence on me,” Donnelly said. “She was a nurse off the coast of South Africa. Then in the Korean War. We were very close and she traveled a lot and I thought that was neat.” Remaining in South Philadelphia, Donnelly went to great lengths — and lots of

modes of transportation — to start her desired vocation. “I commuted from South Philly to Villanova — took the bus and the subway and the train — and I got a nurses degree at Villanova,” Donnelly, who received her bachelor’s degree in 1963, said. “I moved out of South Philly, I guess I was 23. My mother wanted my new husband and I to live in South Philly and she even offered to air condition the bedroom.” Working in psychiatric nursing, Donnelly was encouraged by a mentor to pursue a master’s, which she completed at the University of Pennsylvania in ’65, and went on to get a PhD from Bryn Mawr College in ’85. Working at a variety of places, Donnelly found herself at MCP Hahnemann University in ’96 and played an integral role with the merger when they were taken over and became Drexel by 2003. “Oh, I love [teaching], it’s my favorite

thing to do,” Donnelly, who teaches online, guest lectures and holds four student forums a year, said. “Well, I love to see students finally have those ‘A-ha!’ moments, when they really master something, when they kind of get as enthusiastic about the things I’m teaching as the things they are learning. “It’s really very rewarding.” In addition to teaching, Donnelly works on behalf of all the students in the College of Nursing and Health Professionals, with specialty events like the May fundraiser to make strides that benefit everyone. However, a regular stand-up gig is not in her future. “I’ll tell ya, it was a lot of fun when I did it, when it was finally finished. But the prep — I have such respect for the people that do this on a regular basis. It’s as intense as being an academic, and having to master that feeling,” Donnelly said. Whatever she decides to do, there will be plenty of chances for a few reprises in the future — something she believes come from the Italian diet. “My father lives with me, he’s 100, and my mother-in-law, she’s turning 99, so we are doing something [to celebrate],” Donnelly said. “I think it’s the food, I’ll tell you.” SPR Comment at www.southphillyreview.com/news/ lifestyles.

Cardella

By Tom Cardella Columnist

Relevance

I

freely admit I have reached the age where I am becoming irrelevant. It is not that I haven’t fought the good fight to avoid living in the past. It is not an easy fight, and ultimately it is futile. It’s hell keeping up with change. Take my record collection; or do they still call them records? I got rid of my 78s, and then reluctantly my 33 1/3s. My 8-tracks were here and gone, as were my cassettes. I just put my CDs in some kind of order, but I read where CDs themselves are becoming obsolete. This sounds like a small thing, but the small things are adding up. I have learned the hard way technology is not my friend. Computers have a life span of what, three to four years? These columns have been typed on a manual then electric typewriter, a word processor, my daughter’s old computer, and at present, a grand high-definition, flat-screened, state-of-the-art model. It took many years before the manual typewriter became obsolete. My word processor became outdated in about a week. Meanwhile, Microsoft keeps changing Windows every two weeks. Note: Contrary to the TV commercials, neither you nor I invented the latest Windows system, which, by the way, is becoming obsolete as I write this piece. It seems the whole purpose of Apple’s Steve Jobs is to make anyone older than 25 less relevant. It is a full-time job (pardon the pun) to keep with Apple’s continuous stream of new products. Young folks devote their lives to the pursuit of the latest iPod, iPhone or iPad. I am waiting for the old folks version — iQuit. I figured once I went from using a pay phone to a cell phone, I would be ahead of the game. I finally realized we are never supposed to get ahead of the game. I have had more success keeping up with the latest television technology. I had cable long before most people in this city ever heard of HBO. But I understand that 3-D TV has arrived. Dear reader, I confess that I have no desire to watch golf in 3-D. I don’t trust Tiger Woods in my living room. There might be a reason to view Snooki in 3-D (make that two reasons), but that’s about it. My kids were always proud that my musical tastes were somewhat current. How my son beamed when he found out that I purchased a Counting Crows CD. I was even listening to the same station as

my daughter and son-in-law, WXPN. At some point, WXPN left me behind. Now, I only listen on weekend mornings when their mellow format might include Judy Collins. I recently looked at a list of the best-selling singles in our area and didn’t recognize a single artist. Our pop culture is deliberately harsh on people my age. No self-respecting radio station programs for anyone older than 50. In the world of ratings, you don’t even count if you are older than 50. There are exceptions to the rule. If you are older than 50, your music can be found on AM radio. It is the station that doesn’t play any artist who is still living. The songs are interspersed with ads for health insurance supplements and laxatives. I find that I am too old for Justin Bieber and too young for orchestras playing “Moonlight Serenade.” My wife and I like good restaurants. The trendy ones of today are noisy. Let me put it another way. The saloons in my day were as quiet as a monastery compared to these hip eateries. I am old-fashioned. I like to actually hear what my dining partner has to say. You have to take a course in sign language to converse in one of these food halls. Apparently, someone somewhere decided that there wasn’t enough noise, so many of them play techno music while you dine. Is there something about techno that is supposed to make the beef short ribs taste better? As far as movies, once they close down the Ritz complex, will be the last time I ever go to the movies. Let me put it another way. My tastes are somewhere between “Rashomon” and “Dinner For Schmucks.” Come to think of it, they ought to call the next noise-polluted restaurant “Dinner for Schmucks.” I am tired of mainstream movies. I don’t care if Bruce Willis or Will Smith saves the world again. I don’t care to see the latest sequel to another clever cartoon. I am frankly tired of buddy movies because these people would never be buddies of mine. I long for the days of an elegant theater like the Mastbaum on Market Street instead of these multiplex horrors of today where the half the audience is texting or talking on their cell phones instead of watching the film. I don’t even care if James Cameron makes another over-hyped movie with blue-tinted aliens. Yes, we whom you call “Q-tips” are frustrated, but you know where we exact our revenge? We vote. No one can out vote us. We show up in the rain at 7 a.m. to vote in a primary election! We vote because it is the only area where we matter anymore. Sadly, this has led to the Tea Party movement where the only real ideology is self-interest. You can trace the rise of the Tea Party to the day they started playing techno in fine dining establishments. SPR Comment at www.southphillyreview.com/opinion/cardella.

‘Schmuck’ worthy?

While flipping through a photo album of his taxidermied mice, Tim (Paul Rudd), right, realizes Barry (Steve Carrell) is the perfect schmuck to bring to dinner.

By R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer

“D

inner for Schmucks,” a comedy inspired by the more marquee-friendly French film “The Dinner Game,” is fundamentally mixed up and hypocritical in how it presents itself. The affair of the title, which doesn’t arrive until the final act, is a nosein-the-air gag party for corporate snobs who invite none-the-wiser eccentrics just to snicker at their quirks. The film paints the hosts as bland, closed-minded villains, yet its own humor is precisely rooted in the pea-brained pastime of pointing and laughing at weirdos. The first is Barry (Steve Carrell), an IRS employee/mouse taxidermist with profound ignorance, clingy creepiness and bizarrely logical backwards wisdom (think The Cable Guy meets Rain Man by way of the 40-Year-Old Virgin). The second is Darla (Lucy Punch), another clinger with a psycho streak and a hooker’s wardrobe. The third is Kieran (Jemaine Clement), an outlandish artist with Russell Brand’s mannerisms and Ace Ventura’s fur-andfeather aesthetic. All of these capital-C characters are connected to Tim (Paul Rudd), a ladderclimber at a private equity firm whose superiors organize the mean-spirited meal and hinge Tim’s promotion on his ability to scrounge up the biggest loser. Barry is his candidate. Darla and Kieran, meanwhile, are his Internet stalker and the painter working with his curator girlfriend (Stephanie Szostak).

Director Jay Roach gets a great, benevolent-boogeyman performance from Carrell, but his movie is like a two-faced bully: It offers some synthetic sweetener about the values of “extraordinary people,” then turns around and laughs chief oddball Therman (Zach Galifianakis) right out of the room. It expects you to find hilarity in its cheap sideshow jokes, but at the same time declares that, if you do, it’s you who’s the schmuck.

Dinner for Schmucks PG-13 Two reels out of four Now playing in area theaters

Recommended Rental: Date Night PG-13 Available Tuesday Want a better date with Carrell? Catch this sweet-natured action comedy in which he and Tina Fey play a suburban couple who get wrapped up with New York criminals and use their domestic habits to get out of trouble. Deep down, it’s a tender valentine to devotion and long-term relationships. SPR Comment on these movies or reviews and see the trailers at www.southphillyreview.com/artsand-entertainment/movies.

Mercy Starts With Me

“ I trust the care of my family to Mercy! ” As CEO of one of the largest home care organizations in the five-county Philadelphia region, I understand how hard it can be to find an in-home healthcare provider you can trust. I also know you can trust Mercy...I do! For many years my mother lived with several chronic illnesses that threatened her ability to stay independent at home. Mercy’s dedicated team of nurses and therapists supported my family by ensuring her safety, managing her care and improving her overall quality of life. At Mercy Home Health, we believe the healing process starts in the comfort of home... where support is needed most. I trust the care of my family to Mercy...so should YOU! 1.888.690.2551 www.mercyhealth.org/homehealth

The Toque Stops Here Restaurant Review:

= Average

= Very Good

= Exceptional

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

I

n my review of Rouge several weeks ago, I wrote Matthew Levin is the chef of the moment. He developed the new menu at Rouge and was in charge of the kitchen while waiting for Adsum, his Queen-Village bistro to open. I anticipated my visit to Adsum because Levin wowed me when he was executive chef at LaCroix at The Rittenhouse. From a chef of his high caliber, I expected only the best. I invited my friend Harry, who was a server at Le Bec-Fin for a number of years, to join me. He was to mark a special birthday in a few days and I looked forward to a celebratory dinner. What ensued was one sorry, forgetful meal highlighted by mostly bland food and amateur service. Poor ventilation is not nice when dining in hot weather. We found the coolest table in the room and settled in. Harry and I noticed the black tabletops were dusty and showed scars of the former tenant’s glassware ring marks. I sipped a Bombay Sapphire martini ($10), which was served in a small coupe. Our server placed it to the left of me not to the right. Since I am right-handed and it was filled to the top, it was difficult for me to pick it up without spilling it. Harry and I knew we wanted to try the foie gras, octopus, salad, skate and sweetbreads. He asked our server for bread and it took about 10 minutes for it to arrive. We received four small slices of dry, toasted challah. Since the servers did not watch Coffee/Café/Sweets Caffe Chicco: 2532 S. Broad St., 215-334-3100, $

the tables, it took a little while for Harry to get her attention and ask for butter. The foie gras ($15) was as small as half a premature baby’s foot. We evenly divided it between two share plates and found it OK, but just too small. The french fries fried in duck fat were tasty, but could have been crispier. They required salt. Octopus ($12) is a staple in Mediterranean restaurants where it is usually served in a red wine vinegar sauce. Levin looked to the American South for his version. He bathed the mollusk in a slightly sweet barbecue sauce and added a wedge of lime on the side of the plate. It cut the sweetness a bit, but I found the combination of tastes a little bit weird. Harry asked for more bread. It came just after we divided the Bibb lettuce salad ($10). We thought this dish was the highlight of the evening even though it is rather common. The presentation was eye-appealing since Levin scattered black sesame seeds over the salad. It contained walnut pieces, thinly-sliced pears and bits of slightly tangy blue cheese. I make skate at home. I always dust it in seasoned flour and sautè it in a white wine sage brown butter sauce. At Adsum ($17), it is merely sautèed and placed on the plate. It also was cold. Our server apologized and brought out another which was piping hot. The texture was a little off, sort of mealy. We asked an assistant server for lemon and lime wedges. We doused the skate in salt, pepper and lemon juice. Bits of cool Italian

broccoli were included on the plate. Regular readers of this column know I adore sweetbreads. I was curious to see what Levin’s KFC sweetbreads ($21) were to be. I looked at my plate and there was as best that can be described as three golf balls coated in crumbs. They were dry as dust. It was the bland leading the bland.They were not piping hot. The risotto with peas was toothsome, but could have been hotter. Harry noticed the service was amateur through more than half of the meal, but became more professional as the evening wore on. Bus help arrived so clearing the table was not a problem during the final quarter of dinner. Desserts were banana bread pudding, donuts and crëme brulee, poor choices for

salad lunch. Gazpacho is a breeze to prepare. I enjoy chopping the vegetables by hand. Several weeks ago, I made this cool Spanish soup but forgot to buy tomatoes. Since I always have San Marzano chopped tomatoes in my pantry, I used them and it worked. Fresh fragrant basil from my herb garden topped the soup off beautifully. Summer salads are a dream to me. I like to invent new ones. Sometimes I make lettuce-free salads, or all green salads. Buttery Boston lettuce mixed with red leaf and watercress formed the basis for our salad, a take-off of salade Nicoise. My new rule for dessert has helped me lose weight. I indulge in sweets on the days which begin with the letter “S.” I break the rule on holidays and special occasions. Our lunch was special so I bought some cookies to enjoy with fresh fruit.

ne of my favorite Stephen Sondheim songs is “Ladies Who Lunch” from his musical “Company.” I always enjoy Barbara Streisand’s version, especially when she warbles “another vodka stinger.” Is meeting for lunch a woman’s activity or do men do it too? I’m not sure, but when Pennsylvania Ballet finished its 2009-’10 season with a glorious production of “Romeo and Juliet,” I finally met South Philadelphia resident Marissa Montenegro, the company’s director of public relations. We’ve been chatting on the phone and emailing each other since last fall. Montenegro has beautiful pre-Raphaelite hair and a bubbly personality.

has to pursue the other teams’ top player,” the elder Casasanto said. If he were a girl, Cora would certainly shadow Julianna. The 13-year-old striker collected two goals and three assists in two days of action, taking her team one step further than last year’s squad progressed. “I prefer to make plays for other people, the left-footed Casasanto, who overcame an ankle injury to compete, said. “Scoring two goals [at the Games] surprised me.” That she played through her injury to compete did not surprise her father, whose son missed his medal match with a partially dislocated shoulder. “Most of our rosters have 18 kids, and we’re always looking for talent,” Casas-

That talent could come from the numerous camps that schools will begin conducting in two weeks. “Soccer is definitely one of the most physically demanding sports,” Cora said. “It is but the fact that we started so early has made success easier for us to achieve,” the younger Mark said. “I think the Games backed that up.” “The Games were definitely a thrill for these kids,” the father said. “For many, they were the first shot at state competition.

AT THE GAMES, the younger Mark, 16, joined with Juan Cora, 16, of the 400 block of Mifflin Street, to give the 18-and-under team its second straight medal. Last year, the boys won gold, yet lost a chance to repeat, falling to Lehigh Valley in the final match. Both players attend Roman Catholic High School, Broad and Vine Streets, where Mark’s father helps out as an assistant varsity coach. “The experience at York was great,” Casasanto, a soon-to-be junior who began playing at 3, said. “I attribute my success to my dad’s hard work and to the fact that I have plenty of people to back me up.” “I loved the Games,” Cora, who began acquiring his knack for marking players at 5, added. “Juan’s a fullback so he usually

SOUTh PHILLY REVIEW I August 5, 2010

embers of the South Philadelphia Soccer Club did not need last month’s FIFA World Cup to elevate their competitive natures; they had medal dreams of their own. Two weeks ago in York, dreams became realities as the club’s representatives helped three of their four teams capture medals at the Keystone Summer Games. The event united 7,000 athletes competing in more than 30 sports. The South Philadelphia competitors represented Team Metro, a region consisting of players from Philadelphia. Gracing the field for four of the region’s five teams, the fleet youngsters lived up to their club’s “Champions On and Off the Field” motto by scoring two gold medals and a silver. The club filled roster spots on two 16-and-under boys’ teams — one winning gold, the other taking home the bronze — while the 18-and-under boys’ crew took home the silver. The 14-and-under girls’ squad also left town with gold draped from their necks, with Julianna Casasanto, 13, of the 2000 block of Porter Street, playing a key role in the golden effort. “We draw 80 to 85 percent of our club players from South Philly,” Mark Casasanto, father of Julianna and 18-and-under

player Mark, said at FDR Park, Broad Street and Pattison Avenue. The club originated in 2006 and now includes seven teams competing in seven leagues. Competing in various tournaments gives the players exposure against top competition. “We’re able to attract kids from the Northeast, Bensalem and New Jersey,” the older Mark Casasanto, who serves as executive vice president of the club, said. “I’m eager to see what our results from the Games will do for us.”

SOUTh PHILLY REVIEW I August 5, 2010

This is the perfect opportunity if you are looking for additional income while enjoying the luxury of working at your own leisure! Candidates must have at least 2 years sales experience, car and insurance.

The Office of Housing and Community Development (OHCD) is soliciting proposals for a developer to construct approximately 50 new affordable rental units for senior citizens on Cityowned vacant land located at 921-31 Ellsworth Street in South Philadelphia. The vacant parcel will be conveyed to the successful developer free and clear of all liens and encumbrances. The vacant parcel is identified on the map which is part of the Request for Proposals. The full RFP is available at www.phila.gov/ohcd, and at OHCD at the address below. It is anticipated that the successful applicant will construct and manage a senior citizen rental development at this site. Federal HOME funds allocated by the City are available to subsidize the construction of rental housing for residents with incomes of up to 60% of area median income. Developers are strongly encouraged to leverage other sources of funds for this development, such as Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC) and/or PennHOMES funds (available from the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency), and Federal Home Loan Bank Affordable Housing Program funds. As part of the response to this RFP, applicants will describe their proposed development, identify proposed financing, including City subsidy, and identify the number and targeted income mix of the units. For further information, contact Scott Wilds, Deputy Director, at 215-686-9774. Briefing Session Interested parties are encouraged to attend a briefing session.
