Horton hears a woohoo
A student from a Passyunk Square school will claim an award for her heroism. By Joseph Myers R e v i e w s ta f f w r i t e r
ight summers ago, warfare in Monrovia, Liberia, generated unrest for Daniette Horton and her family. Though none of her relatives perished in the Second Liberian Civil War, the conflict brought the city the constant sound of gunfire and wailing. Today, the 14-year-old will hear another thunderous display, that of applause, as she and 31 other students will receive plaudits at the 11th annual TD Bank Young Heroes Award ceremony at Old City’s National Liberty Museum. An eighth-grader-to-be at Andrew Jackson School, 1213 S. 12th St., Daniette has See YOUNG HEROES page 9

nanimate objects have enabled George Lam to alter his attitude toward Philadelphia. A resident of Seventh Street and Oregon Avenue, the 18-year-old had grown so tired of the area that a move after time at Drexel University seemed set. The last six weeks, however, have given the Central High School graduate a flair
for fighting for his city, as he and nine other learners have participated in the Summer Youth Bicycle and Environmental Program at Boat People SOS, 600 Washington Ave. The bicycle he recently learned to pilot and film equipment have led Lam to become a social justice crusader bent on convincing authorities that South Philadelphia needs more bike lanes. “I had had interests in causes before, but
this is the first time I have been involved in bringing change,” he said Monday from Jefferson Square Park, 400 Washington Ave., where he and six team members filmed parts of their documentary and distributed fliers and surveys. Since July 5, they have received guidance from many voices, with the main tones coming from Minh Nguyen, BPSee BOAT PEOPLE page 11

Word on the Street
â€œWhat are your thoughts on the new curfew set by the mayor in response to the ďŹ‚ash mobs?â€?
â€œI think that the curfew is not protecting the people, but protecting tourists and tourism. It kind of looked where the best interests of the tourists are; they visit University and Center City.â€? Drake Rodriguez, 13th and Jackson streets
â€œI guess itâ€™s a shame that we even have to go to these measures to ensure safety of children and adults. We have to start taking precautions. Maybe we can improve school systems to educate students on this type of behavior. These kids donâ€™t know how not to act like this. It starts in the school system.â€? Robert Pizzo, 15th and Wolf streets â€œItâ€™s great. After 10 oâ€™clock, nothing but trouble goes on in those areas.â€? Sherrell Smith, 15th and Wolf streets
â€œUnless theyâ€™re with adults I think the curfew is necessary. Whereâ€™s the parenting?â€? Rich Hinkie, 11th and Ritner streets Interviews by Jordan Herskowitz Photos by Victoria Boehme

A fragile state To the Editor: Make no mistake â€” what you just witnessed in Washington and Wall Street was a crisis created by Republicans, which harmed the nationâ€™s economy. Despite the fragility of the U.S. economy struggling to overcome a historic recession, House Republicans used as leverage the usually routine raising of the federal debt ceiling â€” risking default on the U.S.â€™s obligations. In practical terms, the GOP â€” with Tea Party freshman leading the charge â€” held a gun to the head of the U.S. economy in order to extract spending cuts from the president and Democratic congressman, most of which directly impact the middle class. During the negotiations, the GOP offered nothing in return and employed a my-way-or-the-highway approach, and refused to allow any kind of revenue increases, including additional taxes on the richest 1 percent of the country and the closing of tax loopholes on oil companies, hedge fund managers, private jet owners and other corporate welfare â€” all of which would do far more to reduce the federal deficit than spending cuts. Obama was willing to offer spending cuts in exchange for revenue increases by a ratio of 3-to-1, yet the GOP walked away from negotiations. Because the nationâ€™s fragile economy could not handle a potential default, the president and democrats had to capitulate in order to avoid a crippling default on the nationâ€™s obligations. Thus, the deal that was reached was unbalanced, and was 98 percent of what the GOP wanted (in their own words) and included only spending cuts. More than a week later the results are obvious. The damage was already done since the U.S. came within a whisker of default-shocking the also fragile global economy. The Standard & Poorâ€™s downgraded the nationâ€™s AAA credit rating, citing specifically the GOPâ€™s â€œno revenueâ€? pledge and the Democratsâ€™ refusal to cut Medicare or Social Security. The stock market crashed. Make no mistake â€” House Republicans recklessly brought this nation to the brink of default in order to get their way and were unwilling to compromise in any way. The result was another economic crisis. I am not against spending cuts, but such cuts overwhelming impact the middle
class and it is irresponsible not to ask the rich and corporations, whose wealth continues to grow despite this recession, to contribute. To those who empowered the Republicans and the Tea Party in the last election, it should be clear who you voted for: People who are willing to risk the credibility of this nation and risk another recession in order to get their way. People who are unwilling to compromise in any way despite the fact that Democrats control the Senate in the White House. They seek to end Medicare and Social Security as you know it, demanding crippling cuts to those programs, which benefit our senior citizens. Remember that when you walk into the voting booth in 2012.

which Saul Bellow novel he used to base his commentary (â€œBellowâ€™s theory,â€? Aug. 4). It took some digging, but the novel is called â€œThe Deanâ€™s December.â€? In it, an American journalist named Albert Corde interviews a scientist named Sam Beech about the dangers of lead poisoning on the human body and mind. Beech is modeled after a real geochemist named Clair Cameron Patterson who spent years studying lead pollution in the environment and succeeded in having lead banned from many products like gasoline and paint. In the novel, lead pollution symbolizes corruption in our society that inspires people to act in damaging ways. Just as lead injures the brain, according to Tom, a media-induced political pollution is destroying our body politic. Crazy indeed. Gloria C.

After shooting a man in West Philly, the offender led police on a high-speed chase to South Philly. By Amanda L. Snyder Review Managing Editor
n accused gunman smashed into multiple police vehicles with his minivan near Whitman after eluding officers in West Philly. Police observed a 41-year-old man chasing a man from an alley near the 500 block of North Paxton Street in West Philly at 3:40 a.m. yesterday, Officer Jill Russell of the Police Public Affairs Unit said. The 41-year-old identified the man as his shooter, whose name has not yet been released as his charges were being processed at press time. The shooter fled the scene in a 1998 Ford Windstar and led police on about a 10-mile chase through West Philly, Center City and South Philly before “intentionally” ramming into three police vehicles near the Walt Whitman Bridge, Russell said. Following the crash, the offender, who had sustained minor injuries, ran from the car, at which time he was arrested. The victim was transported to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in stable condition with a gunshot wound to his right leg, Russell said. No officers were harmed.

A South Philly rapper pled guilty to three counts of failure to file federal income tax returns Tuesday. Dwight Grant, better known by his alias Beanie Sigel, will be sentenced Nov. 18 and could face one to three years in jail, a year of supervised release, an $100,000 to $300,000 fine and a $25 to $75 special assessment, according to court records. The Point Breeze native was released on $150,000 bail that his property on the 2200 block of Mifflin Street along with a relative’s Upper Darby home secured Feb. 23. Grant was to remain in the U.S. Eastern District at all times and submit to electronic monitoring between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. at his residence on the 3900 block of Gateway Drive near FDR Park, according to court records. The traveling restriction and electronic monitoring were later revised due to his need to travel for live shows. The Internal Revenue Service gathered that Grant, 37, earned about $1.5 million between 2003 and ’05 during which
he was responsible for $348,077 in federal taxes, according to his plea memorandum. While his W-2 reported income totaled $14,970, he received $626,385 in royalties from the American Society of Composers, Hitco Music Publishing and State Property Licensing and $853,782 in 1099s, which report other income aside from wages, salaries and tips, from Sony BMG, Tommy Hilfiger, UMG Recordings and Warner. The musician’s total unreported income was more than $1 million.
Man’s skull fractured in assault A man was chased and stabbed near Mifflin Square Park Saturday night. Three men pursued a 48-year-old along the 600 block of Ritner Street at 9:53 p.m. before beating and stabbing him, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The man, who was bleeding, escaped inside New China Chinese Food Take Out, 2354 S. Seventh St., where a fire rescue transported him to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. There, he was treated for stab wounds to his left arm and back, as well as a puncture wound to his head that caused his skull to fracture.

Early-morning holdup Two men mugged a duo at gunpoint in Queen Village last week. A 22- and 24-year-old were strolling along the 700 block of South Fifth Street at 1:15 a.m. Aug. 3 when a man screamed behind them, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. Another man crossed the street and pointed a shotgun at the pair and ordered them to the ground. The first male grabbed the older man’s wallet and cell while the gun-wielding offender grabbed the other’s wallet and told both men to stay put as they fled north on Fifth Street. The armed offender was described as black; in his early 20s; 5-foot-8; thin; with a goatee and hair styled in two chin-length pigtails; and wearing a black T-shirt, and dark blue jeans. The other perpetrator was described as black, in his early 20s, 5-foot-8 to 6 foot, thin, with dreads and

YOUNG HEROES continued from page 1
Daniette Horton, left, has gained insights into heroism and self-belief from stepsister Mar y Ann Skipper. Their hard work has paid off, as Daniette will be one of two local representatives at today’s Young Heroes luncheon. One could say Daniette hacked the hump to shreds, as her diligence led her to attain advanced scores in reading and math on the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment. Eighth grade will bring a chance to perform equally well on the science section and writing portion. The latter will let her show off skills that played a huge role in her nomination. “Writing is expression without talking,” she said of her passion for paper. Her topics include reactions to her days’ events and blend with artistic renditions of the occurrences to encourage other learners to be more industrious in their observations. Her dexterity led to her drawing’s inclusion on her school’s Suns of Liberty creation that joined seven other conceptions in the Philadelphia Arts Education Partnership’s Let Art Freedom Ring program. “I rely on colored pencils and crayons,” Daniette said. “I like anything that’s bright.”

volunteerism, the promotion of appreciation for diversity and conflict resolution or violence prevention. Daniette learned of her selection as a winner July 28 and admitted that dealing with her designation as a hero has not been as easy as making friends. “I was told I am a Young Hero, but the title has not sunk in yet,” she said. Her biggest personal acknowledgement, the award will allow for her to attend a luncheon at the museum, where she will receive a certificate, gifts and a medal. Her story and her colleagues’ tales will end up appearing in the location’s Young Heroes exhibit. As of Friday, she had not told her Liberian relatives of her triumph, but one figures her clan will delight in the news. With school set to begin Sept. 6, she is eager to play the recorder and wield a guitar for Rock Band, the video game that lets users simulate performances of popular rock music songs. “I tell Daniette not to worry,” Skipper said. “She needs to let it out, be herself and watch things happen.” Her stepsister has no trouble following the advice. “I think of myself as special,” she said. “I have to so I can be a good leader.” SPR Contact Staff Writer Joseph Myers at jmyers@ southphillyreview.com or ext. 124.

DANIETTE BEGAN HER altruism early in life, helping her mother and siblings, members of the Bassa ethnic group, their country’s second largest. Leaving them presented Daniette with a bittersweet experience. “I was happy to be able to receive a good education, but sad to say goodbye,” she said. Only a four-hour time difference exists between her first and second lands, so she often calls her family, garnering and giving praise as she works on her subtle acts of heroism and acknowledges her predecessors in progress. “My heroes are my family, friends and teachers,” Daniette said.
In constructing her essay, Thompson, whom Daniette credits for her evolving writing skills, offered a glowing account of the young lady’s efforts. The teacher made Daniette her first nomination because of her willingness to give academic assistance and eagerness to probe the complexity of racial and gender equality. A song analysis assignment found her explaining Sam Cooke’s 1964 song “A Change Is Gonna Come” and touching on the tune’s meaning to her. According to the CIA’s The World Factbook, in 2003, Liberia’s numerous woes included an 85 percent unemployment rate, an 80 percent below-the-poverty-line mark, a 59 percent literacy figure (as of ’09) and a 57-year life expectancy. Cooke’s message presented a reminder of her days in Africa and her dreams for the continent’s overall improvement. Another endeavor, the Bandana Project, saw Daniette addressing the plight of female farmworkers in the United States. She drew a tree to symbolize hard work, a peace sign to note peace’s existence in the world, a heart to depict love, a no-violence sign to prove peace’s powers, a butterfly to encourage their flight from oppression and a flower to reflect their beauty. “Her talents, especially her helpfulness, led me to nominate Daniette,” Thompson, who cited her for her artistic expression, friendship-building and volunteer work, said. She told Daniette of the nomination the penultimate day of school, flooring the teenager. “I had not known of the awards,” the smiling child said of the tokens that honor

made her six years in the United States testaments to the benefits of believing in oneself and building up others. A self-starter, she exudes confidence no matter the endeavor, according to nominator Celeste Thompson, one of her seventh-grade teachers. “I have always been interested in helping others,” Daniette said Friday. “It makes me feel good to bring people through their struggles.” She has proven an expert at conquering her own dilemmas. The youngest of eight children, she began her life in a country rife with conflict, corruption, poverty and unemployment. Her father, living in the United States, felt a move would allow her to flourish, so Daniette arrived May 23, 2005, 21 months after the war’s conclusion and six months before the election of Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the first female head of state in Africa, who has stabilized lingering tension. She settled on the 1700 block of Catharine Street and attended Edwin M. Stanton School, 901 S. 17th St. Though proficient in English, Liberia’s official language, she required extra instruction the institution could not offer, so the switch to Andrew Jackson occurred. The Passyunk-Square facility distanced the youngster from shyness and forged appreciation for her American experience. “The easiest part of life here is going to school all the time,” she said, as her Liberian existence involved sporadic attendance. “At Andrew Jackson, I am not afraid to be friendly, give help or show my personality.” She owes part of her strength to stepsister Mary Ann Skipper. Daniette lived with her father and stepmother Dorothy AdamsHorton before their separation. AdamsHorton’s March ’09 death led Skipper to seek custody. “My mother had me see to it that Daniette continue to receive a great education,” she said. Skipper relocated Daniette to West Philadelphia’s Overbrook Park section yet saw no need to place her in another school, deeming time at Andrew Jackson “the best thing that could have happened to her.” Eager to enter her fifth year there, Daniette will strive to top her academically impressive seventh-grade year and will seek to prove that heroes need not be celebrities or even adults. Knowing the importance of the first year of junior high school, she last year refrained from inundating herself with activities and club commitments, expanding upon her love of music by playing guitar. “We kept saying seventh grade is the most challenging,” Skipper said. “We had to get over the hump.”

or’s Office of Transportation and Utilities. With such an expanse, the students already have abundant options as they near their project’s conclusion. To become as skilled at understanding their wheeled wonders as they are at steering them, they learned maintenance and logistics tips during the third week through Neighborhood Bike Works. The busy fourth and fifth weeks involved multimedia and post-production lessons so they could make a documentary that features interviews with immigrants, including bike lovers. “It is clear that other locations have earned the city’s attention with respect to infrastructure,” Nguyen said. “The documentary will act as our means of advocating for South Philadelphia to receive its due.” The leader never wavers from accepting the “We have the power to make change” mantra that adorns a banner at Boat People. His charges have created a website, www. bpsos.weebly.com, that tabs themselves as keys to making South Philadelphia a biking haven. Eight students are immigrants, so their ancestry has allowed their message to permeate their immigrant-heavy communities. Informing others remains the mission, so the last days have gone toward completing interviews and planning distribution. The youths took to Eighth and Christian streets to video record passers-by to gauge satisfaction with the area’s bicycling options Aug. 4. They followed that with a Saturday session and Monday’s Jefferson Square stop. At the final location, they gathered opinions from two of Boat People’s 20 participants in the Summer Youth Career Exploration Program. The career program attendees regularly meet with their counterparts Fridays for professional development workshops. Their mingling gives
Nguyen evidence that teenagers and young adults have the gusto to be forthright pursuers of evolution. “Mobilizing youth is important in convincing officials that injustices occur. Being involved in these sorts of advocacy presents novelty to most of the participants, but they are excelling,” Nguyen, who is eager to have the documentary aired on public television and through the School District of Philadelphia, said. The10 budding activists and filmmakers receive compensation for their efforts, but their figurative pay matters more. “I noticed inequities along the rides,” Nancy Trinh, of Seventh Street and Oregon Avenue, said. “Realizing we can eliminate them gives us all a boost.” Trinh, the script supervisor and writer, is a Central High School alumnus and a relatively new rider, as she confessed her parents do not trust the area. With her advocacy for the introduction of new spaces, she hopes to earn her elders’ approval, especially when she mentions she can save money by not having to buy SEPTA tokens. Trinh and her cohorts will unite at noon Saturday for graduation, which will feature speeches; the unveiling of their mission statement, city proposal and survey results; a bike rodeo and repair workshop and more at Mifflin Square Park, Sixth and Ritner streets. If successful, their work could make their wish for lanes on Fifth and Sixth streets along Wharton and Federal streets more tangible. “I have a new sense of confidence as a rider and as a leader from working with this group,” Nguyen said. “We are eager to show our commitment.” SPR Contact Staff Writer Joseph Myers at jmyers@ southphillyreview.com or ext. 124.

PHILADELPHIA CONTAINS MORE than 200 miles of bike lanes, according to the May-
16-year-old is currently imprisoned in county jail. Devon Marcus, of Southwest Philly, allegedly fired four shots at an officer on the 600 block of South Front Street after 11 p.m. July 16, according to police. Residents also have been attacked by mobs of teens throughout Center City and parts of South Philly over the past few summers. “Unfortunately, there’s a tiny minority of ignorant, reckless fools who are engaged in violent acts across the city,” Mayor Michael Nutter said at a press conference outside of City Hall Monday. “They seem not to grasp the full consequences of their actions.” The temporary change resulting from the executive order he issued in response to flash mobs and teen violence moves curfew to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday for those younger than 18 within the designated boundaries that consist of Vine to Bainbridge streets river to river and a section of University City from 38th to 43rd streets from Market Street to Baltimore Avenue. Throughout the rest of the city, curfews will remain 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays for those younger than 13 and midnight for those ages 13 to 17. Those violating curfew will be taken to a local police station where a parent or guardian must pick up the child, who also will be issued up to a $300 fine while their parent could receive up to a $500 fine. If the parent fails to obtain the child, he or she could face neglect charges. If the child assaults anyone, the justice system will take over. “If you assault a fellow Philadelphian, a visitor or anyone else in this city, you are going to jail,” Nutter said. “The full force of the Philadelphia justice system will come down on your shoulders and, unfortunately, your life will be forever changed.” Various recreation centers including Murphy, 300 Shunk St., and Vare, 2600 Morris St., will expand hours to 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and the police department will increase its presence in the targeted areas among other locations. Volunteers already have stepped up to help to monitor the streets. The curfew matter will be readdressed in the fall when City Council is back in session for a permanent update to the law, but the executive order will remain in effect through the summer. “We need to send a strong, unmistakable and clear message that our city, that our neighborhoods, even parts of Center City are places where people can bring their families, enjoy themselves and have a good time without fear or cause for concern,” Nutter said. “Center City and no other neighborhood in Philadelphia is a place for violence, fear or stupidity.” SPR

SOS’s Asian Youth Empowerment Project organizer. A Temple University student and North Philadelphia resident, he crafted the program to breed an understanding of fund allocation to communities through an analysis of bicycling opportunities. “I am not much of a rider, so it’s funny I would be the one to design the curriculum,” Nguyen said from the park. A trek along the Schuylkill River Trail with last summer’s interns caused the and Vietnam native to test how willing teenagers would be to speak up for their communities’ infrastructural and environmental identity. Bicycling became the topic because of its importance to local immigrants. “People think bicycling is just for recreation, but, for immigrants, it is a necessity, a part of their livelihood,” Nguyen said. He noted that more affluent neighborhoods have impressive bike lanes, singling out Center City’s offerings on Pine and Spruce streets, and that South Philadelphia’s are lackluster. “The lines on Washington Avenue are broken down, and Oregon Avenue’s are just adequate,” he said. Citing immigrants’ lack of a political voice, he partnered with West Philadelphia’s Neighborhood Bike Works and Center City’s The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia and The Philadelphia Youth Network to ensure that trips around the city and work at Boat People would help to make a compelling case to higher-ups. An application process landed the participants, who took titles on the film project. Their tutelage began with looks at environmental justice, land use and urban planning, concepts that made Lam question the local government’s concern for everyone. “Travel can be trying,” the production manager said. “The first week started to open my eyes to becoming more aware.” The second week really opened his orbs and his lungs, as the members upped their knowledge of bicycle safety and enjoyment by venturing to major areas such as the Delaware River Trail, Grays Ferry Crescent, The Navy Yard and the Schuylkill River Trail. Their travels resulted in three videos about the spaces’ vibrances and other areas’ potential to be likewise stunning. The coalition, whose May study determined South Philly ranked 16th nationwide with a 5.2 percent bike commuter share, organized the journeys, which gave Lam and the other cycling novices more passion to roam and to understand the figurative power of their vehicles. “I no longer have a negative view of the city,” he said. “We have so much to do.”

n her drive down to the Shore last week, Angela “Chickie” Pagano, 15, was still reeling from everything that had happened in the last few weeks. After attending The International Model and Talent Association Convention in New York City, she had left with multiple awards and was in talks with management firms about representing her. “My main goal [at the convention] was I wanted to find a manager. I wanted management and John Robert Powers is a great school to attend to prepare for the convention. They have pretty good connections,” Chickie said of the Philly-based model/ acting agency and school with whom she worked to prepare for the convention. “I have a lot of other callbacks I’d like to meet [before signing], but right now I think John Robert Powers is really, really great.” At the convention, Chickie placed in multiple categories, including singing, acting and other entertainment-related competitions. Her proudest accomplishment was a second runner-up finish in the singing competition. “I came in second runner-up to two boys. I was really happy, but the boys are rare to find so that made sense, and of all the girls, continued on next page

I came in first,” Chickie, who lives at 10th and Federal streets, said. In her 13- to 15-year-olds division, Chickie estimates there were more than 100 contestants in some of the categories. Of the competitors, only six were selected to perform for talent agents and casting directors in the night’s “showcase” where the awards were given out. Chickie, as one of the six chosen, had the opportunity to show her stuff. “I think everyone gets excited-nervous. I was not nervous. I’m ready to go and have a great time. It’s what they want. They want to see you’re having a good time,” Chickie, who spent the week in New York City with her mom, Janine, said. Chickie’s mom and dad, Greg, are her biggest fans, and the aspiring singer/songwriter/actress recognizes her support network and the toll her demanding dream may take on the entire family. “It’s really hard. I have two other siblings,” the soon-to-be sophomore at Girard Academic Music Program, 2136 Ritner St., said. “Practicing, that’s on a daily basis, at least an hour a day, especially my singing. If you want to be competing with the best, you have to be on top of your game 24/7. You have to be prepared for
THOUGH SHE IS only 15, Chickie already had a moment of clarity that put her on the path to becoming a singer and actress. “About four years ago was when I really got into it and got into the singing. I heard somebody my age and she was a friend of mine. She had a demo out at the time and I was really impressed. I went and I cried a little bit because I knew I was that good, but I needed some lessons,” she said. “I started pushing my mom to get me lessons and I just kept begging.” Since that time, Chickie has committed herself to pursing an entertainment career. She began writing and recording her own music, and people can hear her jams on iTunes. “I started writing music when I was in sixth grade,” Chickie said. “The album is called ‘Here Comes the Show.’ It came out last year.” Her singing repertoire also includes belting out the anthem for the Philadelphia Phillies two years ago and being called back two weeks ago during the PhilliesGiants series to lead the crowd in a rousing rendition of “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.” But her personal taste is a little different than your average game-day fare.

“I’d really like to do film and commercials. For my singing, I really enjoy R&B and blues, pop — kind of like a Lady Gaga or Joss Stone,” Chickie said. Though she has had success in Philadelphia, Chickie recognizes her career may take her out of the area and this is something she is willing to consider. “I think it has its pros and cons. I think New York and L.A. are both really awesome cities, larger cities,” she said, “but I am from here, and, in that sense, I don’t want to leave.” What motivates the Passyunk Square native is a dream to share her gift with the world and if that’s what she is pursuing, there is little that will stop her. “I’d really love to go on tour, tour the world and just perform. I’d also like to definitely, definitely do a film. If it’s with any celebrity, that’s cool with me,” she said. “This will probably sound corny here, but maybe with Robert Pattinson. I’d also like to work with Meryl Streep, or someone of her caliber. She’s just an amazing actress. But singing-wise I’d probably want to work with Joss Stone and Christina Aguilera — and Lady Gaga.” SPR Comment at news/lifestyles.

An insignificant story
Jason (Hamish Linklater) and Sophie (Miranda July) are a couple whose futures are altered after the addition of a stray cat into their lives.
By R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer
here’s a lot of talk of “inside” versus “outside” in Miranda July’s “The Future,” with the outside generally representing savagery and loneliness, and the inside supposedly denoting comfort and peace. But, as we soon learn in this beautifully layered meditation on 30-something growing pains, the inside isn’t so safe, either, and as these metaphorical dangers come to quiet blows, a bittersweet suggestion of how to best ride out change finds its way to the surface. You might not expect such poignancy from a film with a talking cat and a talking moon but, then, this is the latest from the woman behind “Me and You and Everyone We Know,” a movie that somehow made a dirty, potentially pedophilic exchange of keystrokes into something downright adorable. July is practically peerless in her ability to guide even the funkiest idiosyncrasies to a place of endearing and heartbreaking humanity. As she did in “Me and You,” the filmmaker stars as her own lead character, playing Sophie, a dancer and longtime girlfriend of Jason (a great Hamish Linklater). The decision to adopt an injured cat – who narrates the film, is voiced by July, and is shown only as a set of oversized paws – throws the couple into a tragicomic, timeconscious tailspin, with Sophie rebelling against their current life and Jason trying desperately to preserve it (he even takes a volunteer gig promoting sustainability). Take your pick of the many things the cat symbolizes (change, consequence, a child, time itself), then apply that same interpretational wonder to just about everything in this richly nuanced triumph, a
model of thoughtful, artful indiedom. Detractors will dismiss July’s odder impulses and bouts of magical realism as random embellishment, but there’s nothing random about what it all amounts to: a sad, hopeful, swim-in-your-mind collection of scarily true feelings. Working from a perspective that seems both burdened and enlightened by the weight of life experience, July puts a lot of herself into the film, which is all the better. Hers is one of cinema’s more valuable voices, and “The Future” is one of 2011’s best films.

Presenting a shadowy palette that’s one with his ominous mood, he also draws extraordinary performances from Mia Wasikowska as the lead heroine and Michael Fassbender as the mysterious Mr. Rochester.

SOUTh PHILLY REVIEW I August 11, 2011
he U.S. House of Representatives left for the summer last week. The messy negotiations were over. The debt ceiling was raised. The summer lull in news coverage has begun. A weary nation trying to beat the record heat is the big story. Everyone barely noticed a story about the Federal Aviation Agency being shut down because of wrangling in the House over funding. Buried in that story is an unholy alliance between Delta Airlines and House Republicans. It is a story about an outrageous attempt to keep Delta’s workers from unionizing, and the Republicans’ hypocrisy about their pretense of caring about budget deficits when it collides with politics. The agency has oversight over airports, airlines, pilots, employees, air traffic controllers and other parts of the nation’s aviation system. When it came time this year for Congress to reauthorize funding for the agency, House Republicans insisted on including an anti-union provision. In case you missed it, House Republicans have been bitten by the Tea Party virus. It is their way or well, you know. If you don’t give in to their blackmail, they will dig in their heels oblivious to any disaster that may follow. It was their strategy in preventing Congress from letting the Bush tax cuts on the wealthy expire and closing loopholes that would have ended subsidies to dirty-rich oil companies. Delta gives lots of money to congressional campaigns. Now the airline wants payback and the rules changed so when a vote is held on whether its employees want to unionize, anyone absent, which includes sickness, vacation or any emergency, is counted as a no vote even though they didn’t vote at all. This is the provision Republicans have obligingly inserted in the funding bill for the agency. Don’t like the anti-union language? Fine. Republicans won’t vote to fund the agency without it. If that were the complete story, chances are that your reaction would be, so what’s the big deal? Why should I worry about some more workers getting the shaft when things are bad for me too? But not so fast. The failure to fund the agency caused the furlough of 4,000 workers and 87,000 construction workers including folks who collect federal taxes owed by the airlines to the federal government. The furlough wound up costing the federal government $30 million. Meanwhile, agency inspectors among others the government deemed essential were working without pay and
paying for their job-related travel. The big story — where the real hypocrisy comes in — is rabout the uncollected tax dollars. The uncollected taxes added $30 million a week to the federal deficit before a hurry-up make-shift deal allowed the Senate to extend the agency’s operating authority through mid-September, postponing the fight until the summer recess is over. Here’s the coup de grace, if you’ll pardon my French. While some airlines decided to do the right thing and give their passengers the benefit of what amounted to a tax break because of uncollected taxes, others decided otherwise. Delta and some others increased fares by the amount of taxes not collected after the shutdown and just pocketed the difference. Delta’s greed should not come as a surprise. Any airline that could charge 34 military returning from Afghanistan $2,800 in extra baggage fees is a special sort of organization. The Delta story is a snapshot of all that is wrong in our dysfunctional and corrupt political system. It is a story of unmitigated greed and how greed trumps political principle. It shows how one company has benefitted not only from its lobbying money, but how it is riding on the anti-union fervor of the times. It reveals the radical Tea Party has hijacked today’s Republican Party and the hatred for unions runs so deep on the right that even budget deficits pale in significance. While polls show that the public seems to place equal blame on both parties for the mess, it is the intransigence of the Republican Party that is the cause. And finally, it shows our government’s failure doesn’t just affect the other person. After all the dots are connected we find we are all affected. When the members of Congress return after Labor Day with their great tans and smiling faces, funding for the agency will, no doubt, get resolved. As things seem to be going, another “compromise” will be forged. I placed quotation marks around the word because when a gun is held to your head, the better word is blackmail without quotes. The radicals that control the Republican Party will likely dig in their heels and refuse to remove the antiunion language from the funding bill, and the Democrats will probably cave. There will be anguished cries from liberals about their party’s sellout of an employee’s right to form a union. They will be ignored. The Tea Party folks will pontificate about how we would be better off without the agency. There will be a photoop of leaders of both parties when the final reauthorization bill is passed, though it will not even be close to the day’s top news story — just an insignificant story ignored by most. And life will move on in Washington. It always does. SPR

ith the remaining weeks of the summer season passing quickly, people would much rather spend their time outdoors than in the kitchen. Valerie Iezzi’s Puttanesca provides a tasty and fast solution to the hunger-driven dilemma. The resident of the 1500 block of South Juniper Street boasts that her seasonal meal option will leave plenty of time to enjoy the rest of those hazy August afternoons.

Santucci’s Square Pizza By Phyllis Stein-Novack R e s ta u r a n t R e v i e w e r
Coffee/Café/Sweets Caffe Chicco: 2532 S. Broad St., 215-334-3100, $
Although new to South Philadelphia, Santucci’s Square Pizza and its expansive menu have added a tasty impact to the Bella Vista neighborhood. S ta f f P h o t o b y G r e g B e z a n i s
our first bite. A large stainless-steel spatula arrived with the pie for easy serving. We packed three slices to-go. The braised short-rib sandwich served on a soft roll ($9) immediately earned three toques after Edward and I proclaimed the beef so tasty, juicy and tender I doubted any chef could top it. The beef was perfectly seasoned by the way. Never once did any of us ask for salt and pepper. Hand-cut french fries dusted with sea salt came with the sandwich. There is a choice of sweet potato fries if you prefer them. As we watched the Phillies win, several families arrived with babies and toddlers in tow. The staff immediately doted on the children who were so happy eating at Santucci’s never once did any of them whine or cry. I did some culinary sleuthing and discovered Santucci’s is run by Alicia San-
tucci whose grandparents, Philomena and Joseph, began the restaurant chain in 1959. They began in North Philadelphia but now South Philly has, in my opinion, the finest pizza in the area. Santucci’s, which opened nearly two weeks ago, just might become the area’s No. 1 family restaurant. Three tips of the toque to Santucci’s. SPR

and a sandwich. Each dish we relished was outstanding. Square, white china plates were placed on the table along with modern styled, stainless flatware and a pile of napkins. Classic Caesar salad ($7) was prepared with a roasted garlic dressing and crunchy homemade croutons, which were baked or sautéed with olive oil. The romaine was cool and crisp, napped with shavings of Parmesan. The star of the Granny Smith Apple Salad ($7) was the delicious homemade pickled red onions, which played off well with fresh bibb lettuce leaves, small chunks of imported Gorgonzola, crunchy candied walnuts, small slices of celery and sliced apples tossed in an apple cider vinaigrette. Our server advised us the spaghetti and meatballs ($10) was large enough for three. Indeed it was. The homemade thin spaghetti was topped with four relatively large meatballs, made with a mix of beef, veal and wild boar. They were so outrageously delicious I decided to try to duplicate the recipe. The sauce was obviously lovingly prepared in house and clung to the pasta and meatballs like a happy child holding on to his mother’s skirt. Pizzas come in several sizes. We ordered the 12-inch medium size made with spinach, cheese and sliced red ripe tomatoes ($11.40). The square pizza, which was baked on a sheet pan, had a thin, crispy crust and immediately brought smiles to our faces after Myna, Edward and I took

was about to review a high-end restaurant when a friend who lives in Bella Vista told me about Santucci’s Square Pizza, a new pizza restaurant at 10th and Christian streets. “It’s the best pizza I ever tasted,” he said. Cousin Myna, who is Cousin Carl’s sister, was attending a conference in Center City and joined Edward and I for what turned out to be one of the most pleasant dining out experiences I have had in recent memory. I called ahead and discovered Santucci’s is a cash-only BYOB equipped with a television so we could watch the Phillies. Some may consider Santucci’s a barebones, no-frills place. There’s an old exposed brick wall with a large blackboard which lists the specials. A large round clock hangs on one wall and there are red awnings outside to protect you from the sun should there be a wait for a table. There’s also a bench if you care to sit. We were comfortable sitting at a highly polished wood table and were greeted by two smiling young women who made us immediately feel at home. We toted along a white wine from Sardinia that was placed in an ice bucket. Another woman brought us wine glasses and menus. Santucci’s is famous for its square, thincrust pizza, but there is so much more on the bill of fare. I knew we had to sample two salads, a plate of meatballs and spaghetti, a pizza

By Phyllis Stein-Novack Food Columnist
nless you have been living deep in the Australian Outback, or in the frozen tundra of Antarctica, you know America has become deeply entrenched in an obesity epidemic. Walk down the street and see extremely overweight teens swigging from a two-liter bottle of soda. Ride the bus and notice how many people need to occupy two seats. The situation is rife. Dr. T. Colin Campbell, a professor of nutrition at Cornell University, made an appearance on “Real Time with Bill Maher” last month. He said Americans need to eat more fruits, vegetables and grains. Simply grab a big canvas shopping bag and shop at the Reading Terminal Market, the Italian Market or the Headhouse Farmers Market. If you must drive, go to Springdale Farm in Cherry Hill, N.J., or the farmers market at the Collingswood, N.J. PATCO train station. There is a reason why supermarket managers place all of the colorful produce and flowers at the entrance of their stores; they want to dazzle you with different colors, shapes and aromas. They hope to make your visit a most pleasant one. Shopping for fruits and vegetables is always a sensuous experience for me. Palm a ripe peach and take a sniff. Hold a big globe artichoke in your hands then take a few home and work magic in your kitchen. Feel the smooth glossiness of slim Japanese eggplants. They can be turned into a myriad of dishes. I wrote about meatless Monday several
One does not have to be a vegetarian to enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables. Eating healthier is one way to shed excess pounds from the body. months ago. American chefs are in the forefront of this important movement. I enjoy preparing vegetarian dishes, especially in the summertime.
■ Marinated Roasted ■ Japanese Eggplants from “Food for Friends” by Barbara Kafka Ingredients: 2 pounds of Japanese eggplants, washed and cut in half lengthwise, leaving the stems attached 1/2 cup of olive oil 1/3 cup of soy sauce 1/4 cup of Canola oil 6 to 8 cloves of garlic, peeled
Directions: With skin side of the eggplants down, score the flesh in a diamond pattern using a sharp knife. Place the remaining ingredients in a food processor bowl fitted with the steel blade. Pour the marinade into a large glass dish such as a lasagna pan. Place the eggplants, cut side down, in the marinade. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate overnight. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Bring the eggplants to room temperature. Roast the eggplants for 20 minutes. Turn them and roast an additional 20 minutes.
Allow the eggplants to cool in the liquid. Place them on a serving platter using a slotted spoon. They are tasty cool, warm or at room temperature. Serves eight.
■ Grated Zucchini ■ in Cream Ingredients:
6 very thin zucchini, grated in the food processor 2 tablespoons of Canola oil 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste 1/2 pint of heavy cream Pinch of nutmeg
Directions: Wrap the zucchini in a kitchen towel. Squeeze out all of the water from them. Place a 4-quart saucepan over mediumhigh heat. Add the oil and butter. Once the butter has melted, add the zucchini. Sauté for about five minutes. Add the cream, blend well and lower the heat to a simmer. Once the cream has slightly thickened, add the nutmeg and stir well. Serves six to eight. Note from Phyllis: I have adapted this side dish from a Julia Child recipe. It is the only way I will eat the dreaded zucchini.
■ Green Beans ■ with Pearl Onions, Cherry Tomatoes and Capers Ingredients: 1 pound of local fresh green beans, trimmed 1 8-ounce package of frozen pearl onions, defrosted, rinsed under cool running water in a colander 1 pint of cherry tomatoes, cut in quarters 2 heaping tablespoons of capers, rinsed under cold water Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste Fresh herbs of choice such as basil, Italian parsley, chervil, dill or chives, snipped with scissors 1/2 cup of extra-virgin olive oil Juice of 1 large lemon
Directions: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Drop in the green beans, lower the heat to medium-high and cook for about five minutes, depending upon the thickness of the green beans. Taste one to make sure it has lost its raw texture. Place the green beans in a bowl filled with ice and water. Remove them from the ice water and roll them in a kitchen towel. Place the green beans in a pretty serving bowl. Add the onions, tomatoes and capers. Blend gently. Season with the salt and pepper. Whisk together the oil and lemon juice in a small bowl. Add a handful of herbs of choice. Blend well. Pour the dressing over the salad. Serves four. SPR Comment at www.southphillyreview.com/foodand-drink/features.

LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22):You may decide it is now or never to take a relationship to the next level. Let this person know your intentions to see if the desire is mutual. Lucky number: 105. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22): Use your strong negotiating skills to make wants known in a direct manner. Arriving at an agreement is possible by approaching it with the benefit of personal knowledge. Review and approve the details. Lucky number: 327. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22): You may wake up in a dark mood concerning a career matter. This will nag at you until you deal with it. You may not get what you want, but at least try. Lucky number: 289. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21): Chats with neighbors are enjoyable. But you may share too much personal information in this relaxed state and make someone uncomfortable. Lucky number: 791. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21): A financial arrangement involving the home may be made. Communication should be clear, precise and allow you to move forward. Lucky number: 584. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19): A home appliance may be repaired with good results. Tackle the smaller fix-it projects. If family members are needed, firm demands will work better than nagging. Lucky number: 546. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18): You could go overboard in trying to impress a romance interest. Flirting is one thing, but bestowing expensive gifts upon this person is another.

Frank Morrison used his two-handed backhand to great effect to fend off six opponents.
rank Morrison may not be able to blast winners past professional greats Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, but his game possesses enough strengths that like the Swiss and Spanish stars, he can call himself a champion. The 12-year-old tactician bested his nerves and a tough opponent Aug. 4 to capture the National Junior Tennis League City Novice Championship at the Arthur Ashe Youth Tennis and Education Center in East Falls. The seventh-grader-to-be at Girard Academic Music Program, 2136 Ritner St., has made his third year of playing his most fruitful and has proven that second choices may yield one’s first success. “I chose tennis after I became tired of baseball,” the Center City resident said Tuesday at the Fels South Philadelphia Community Center, 2407 S. Broad St. With its quick pace, the sport nabbed his attention immediately, so Frank sought to strengthen his strokes with time at the University of Pennsylvania’s Levy Tennis Pavilion. Singles competition enthused him, as he could use the penchant for analysis that is fitting for one who excels in mathematics and science. When Bryan Hughes, head of Jedi Tennis LLC
and the South Philadelphia Tennis Association, began spring classes at GAMP, Frank decided to bolster his backhand and his brain. “I play to have fun, but having a game plan lets me be successful,” he said. Eager to excel, he chose to continue to receive instruction from Hughes, of the 1100 block of South Eighth Street, this summer as a first-time participant in the league, a program that aids Ashe in assisting more than 6,500 children annually. Since June 27, he has spent weekdays perfecting his two-handed backhand at Barry Playground, 18th and Johnston streets. A fan of finesse, too, courtesy of five years of violin lessons, he has come to love venturing to the net to hit deft volleys. “I like to hit the ball where the person isn’t,” he said of his style, putting his own spin on baseball Hall of Famer Willie Keeler’s message to batters to “hit ’em where they ain’t.” Frank five times displayed his expertise in finding open spaces, as he blitzed a quintet of opponents to reach the league final. Unfamiliar with his foe and suffering from a bit of fear, he arrived without a blueprint for victory. “I was scared at the start and became more so whenever he got a point,” the spectacled sport said of the early stages.
in a best-of-three-sets contest, with three games needed to claim a set. Usually more aggressive, the youngster chose a conservative approach once he noticed that his combatant’s aggressive swings led to unforced errors. “I just let him miss,” Frank said of being content to make quality returns devoid of risk. He refrained from a huge on-court celebration following his three-set triumph, choosing to flash a few smiles instead. His family, however, will soon take care of the revelry with a big outing. Frank is not the only tennis enthusiast in the Morrison clan, as 10-year-old sister Josephine, who will begin her GAMP career as a fifth-grader next month, almost captured the girls’ championship. She and his best friend, 12-year-old Riley Cheeseman, a student at Spring Garden’s Julia R. Masterman School, have given him motivation and have gained from his love of the game. “My friends encouraged me to play, and I have enjoyed helping others to have fun,” Frank said. “Frank is a great kid with awesome potential,” Hughes added of his protégé, whose league tutelage ends today. The court conqueror will likely compete at the advanced level next year. With school approaching, he will enjoy sporadic play in the coming weeks, but he is eager to work on improving his footwork, serve and use of topspin. “Winning a title felt good, especially in my first year,” he said. “I need to work on some elements, though, to become a better player.” Now that sounds like a plan.

NoveNas Text DhAc for a chance to meet Gina Lynn in person 8/19 & 8/20
NoveNa to St. JoSeph Dear St. Joseph, head of the most perfect household, foster father of Jesus and guardian of His mother Mary, I confidently place myself and all my concerns under your care and protection. I ask that, through your powerful intercession with God, you obtain for us all the help and graces that I need for my spiritual and temporal welfare and in particular, the special favor I now ask…(here mention and think of your petition, especially family needs). Good St. Joseph, I know with confidence that your prayers on my behalf will be heard by God, and He will grant my request, if it be for His glory and my greater good.
