T

he last few months have witnessed attempts by unexpected creatures to make South Philadelphia as diverse zoologically as it is racially. At least four raccoons have been wandering a six-block radius, causing confusion and concern for residents and necessitating discussions on their removal. Though the critters have developed a semi-wide stretch for finding food, they have proven especially meddlesome for homeowners on the 2800 block of South 11th street. More accustomed to tending to stray See RACCOONS page 12

he success rate of transplant surgery has readily improved, but demand far exceeds supply. More than 100,700 are on the organ transplant waiting list with more added each month, John D. Green, Gift of Life’s director of community relations, said. George Arroyo was one of the lucky ones.

“I am very blessed that I only waited one year for a kidney,” the resident of 11th and Shunk streets said of his transplant. “The normal wait is three to five years.” Arroyo along with the Nelsons, a local family of an organ donor, were part of the 350-member Team Philly consisting of 109 organ recipients, 13 living donors and 76 donor family members that traveled to Madison, Wis. July 30 to August 4 for the 2010 U.S. Transplant Games. Every other

summer, besides bringing awareness to the successes of transplantation, the event provides transplant recipients and living donors a chance to compete in a variety of sporting events while donor family members make up the cheering section. Arroyo, 47, was diagnosed with kidney disease in 1991. It progressed slowly until he had to endure dialysis for one year prior See TRANSPLANT page 9

Word on the Street

With the unemployment rate at 9.5 percent, what do you think the government should do about getting people back to work? “I think we need that alphabet soup program like Franklin Roosevelt had. If we cut the military budget and put into place the F.D.R program, we could put that money back into getting people to work. The United States needs people to work.” Chris Randolph, 11th and Shunk streets “We should do what F.D.R did and put into place the public works program. We have to find somewhere to free up loot and put people to work.” Neal Lund, 20th and Colorado streets

“Getting rid of the politicians that think about the money in their pocket and get people back to work. These politicians are sitting around and putting money in their pocket. They don’t care about the people.” Eve Tinsley, 20th and Dorrance streets

“It’s everybody we are taking care of. We need to take care of ourselves and it’s affecting unemployment and the United States. We are not getting the education we need.” Joseph Dove, 2000 block of South Sixth Street Interviews by Jermar Perry Photos by Natalie Kellman

Going back in time To the Editor: In response to Mr. Churchill (“Sticking it to small businesses, Aug. 5) who feels the businesses on South Broad Street are unfairly picked on with the City’s new trash fee, and the recent article (“Fee-fi-fo-scum,” July 29) which featured Ms. Ciminera, a business owner on the 2100 block of South Broad Street, I think it’s important to remember a little history. Not so long ago, behind the momentum of the 2004 Republican Convention and federal funding for the Avenue of the States, Councilman Frank DiCicco sponsored legislation to create a special-services district along the South Broad Street business corridor. The districts are modeled after the Center City District, which has been an outstanding success. The local businesses along the business corridor pay an extra 20 percent in real estate taxes that funds the district and pays for regular daily cleanups (with uniformed employees) and other services and improvements to support the businesses. (Ever notice the Green Machines cleaning the sidewalks in Center City?) These special services districts have been employed with great success in Center City and other business corridors, and the businesses get full value back on the extra taxes by having a cleaner and more hospitable environment for their costumers, which in turn increases business. As dirty and as full of trash that the South Broad Street business corridor is, you would think that the legislation would pass easily. But it failed because of almost uniform opposition by the business owners and property owners. I take no issue with most businesses’ opposition to the trash fee, and I do sympathize with them. Each city resident also is looking at a 1 percent increase in property taxes. I take no issue with Ms. Ciminera either, for all I know she cleans her sidewalk, and may not have been around in ’04. But it’s hard to have sympathy for the business and property owners on South Broad Street. For years, they have failed to regularly clean their sidewalks and have allowed that once beautiful area to deteriorate into the terrible trash-infested state it is now. In ’04, those owners had an wonderful opportunity to make that business corridor clean and beautiful

and hospitable for their customers by creating a special-services district, and they failed due to their own short-sightedness. It is hypocritical for them to complain about the poor state of South Broad Street in light of recent history. Richard C. DeMarco South Philadelphia

Just DROP it To the Editor: Anna Verna, president of City Council, is expected to receive an absurd bonus of $584,777 in the DROP program next year. Why is such an extravagant bonus given at a time when our city is crying the budget blues? According to published reports, Verna receives an annual salary of $148,090. She discontinued her 5 percent givebacks in December but decided to begin deductions again as of July 1. As Council president, she should serve as an example to the membership. Her acceptance of such an enormous DROP bonus during this time of dire financial crisis is a slap in the face to all taxpayers. The DROP program needs to be eliminated. It cannot serve as a runaway gravy train any longer. As a voter in the upcoming November election, I will not forget about it. My vote will be directed to the Council members who support the elimination of the DROP program. Carol A. Pasquarello South Philadelphia

Cutting beneath the issue To the Editor: Isn’t it ironic on the same day the mayor announces the police and fireman cuts that three [individuals] who are pulled over for being suspected of having guns come out of their car and start firing. Thank God no officer was killed. This just shows you what could happen if these cuts are implemented. Do you think that if cuts are announced in any other department that they would be bombarded with requests for services?

As these positions with police and fireman are eliminated thru retirees and attrition and the services are reduced, will the citizens of this city protest? No. But, if something happens and the police or fireman don’t respond quick enough then you’ll complain it took to long These will be the same people that sit on their steps and see the crime being committed but when the Police arrive they say “I didn’t see anything.” If it doesn’t involve you or your family you stay quiet. So don’t bitch if you won’t snitch. Mr. Mayor the sad part of this that the citizens of this city will probably re-elect you like they did Goode after he firebombed Osage Ave. It won’t matter that you raised taxes or cut services and the same goes for Council, I guarantee you’ll see and hear all the promises over and over again as we do every time they’re up for reelection. Stop spending money on remodeling and giving out ridiculous raises. I have an idea how to raise money for the police and fireman, the same way they did for the pools sell the 7 o’clock specials that sold for the rec. centers. Do that once a month and you’ll raise money. Mario Marchetti South Philadelphia

Back to the books To the Editor: Keeping the libraries open in Camden, N.J. is needed even more since I watched the Channel 6 report the other day. You know your city is going to hell in a handbasket when the Mayor, Dana Redd, cannot even pronounce the word library correctly. To hear an elected official speak like that, to me, is frightening. That alone, highlights how important and desperate their situation is in Camden. Or could it mean how useless it would be keeping the “lie-berries” open? You may feel I’m being petty, but consider what is at stake here! Chris Doyle South Philadelphia Comment on these letters or topics at www.southphillyreview.com/opinion/ letters.

he 2010 Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival was a huge success. I was told about 20,000 attended the events over the course of four days. But besides trying all the different foods, I had a chance to sit down and talk with some of the Food Network’s personalities. Pat and Gina Neely — who some would consider the king and queen of Memphis BBQ — were visiting the Jersey Shore for the first time, and from what I could tell, were having a blast.

Teen arrested for murder The 17-year-old was apprehended for taking a man’s life inside his Grays Ferry home Friday afternoon. By Amanda L. Snyder R e v i e w S ta f f W r i t e r

R

esponding to the scene to check on a resident’s well-being after concerned neighbors called, police discovered Harvey Marinoff in the basement of his home on the 1600 block of South Bailey Street in Grays Ferry at 1:30 p.m. Friday with gunshot wounds to his head and back, Officer Jill Russell of the Police Public Affairs Unit said. The 67-year-old was pronounced dead a half-hour later. Reinaldo Amador, 17, was arrested the following evening at 7:15 in his North Philadelphia home and charged with the man’s murder, Russell said. Amador, who is believed to have known Marinoff, allegedly stole the man’s car and cell phone the night of the crime, Homicide Sgt. Frank Hayes said. Amador also was charged with robbery, theft, possession of an instrument of crime, receiving stolen property and firearm violations.

Toddler shot on birthday A toddler and two family friends were caught in the crossfire of a Pennsport shooting Saturday — the same day as the boy’s third birthday. The group heard multiple gunshots and saw flashes of light from nearby bushes as they were sitting outside at 11:49 p.m. on the 300 block of Washington Avenue, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The 30-year-old woman was shot once in the left shoulder, while the left side of the 34-year-old man’s abdomen was grazed by a bullet. The boy was hit in his left calf. The trio was transported to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital by medic. The woman and child were admitted in stable condition, while no treatment was deemed necessary for the man’s injury, which was minor, Tolliver said. Upon further investigation, detectives located multiple calibers of ballistic evidence, along with a damaged drainpipe and a 2003 Kia with a broken window, on the 1000 block of South Fourth Street, Tolliver said. The unlit area is near Dumpsters and bushes. No one could provide a description of the suspects as the shooting occurred about 30 feet away. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013.

School district sued for assault A mother who was allegedly assaulted when she picked up her child at South Philadelphia High School, 2101 S. Broad St., more than a year ago is suing the School District of Philadelphia and its superintendent, Arlene Ackerman. “She was in the school to get her child and she was assaulted by two or three people,” attorney Harry Kane, of the Jenkintown-based firm Saffren and Weinberg, said of They Tieu. “She suffered head injuries, eye injuries and continues to suffer blurry vision and headaches.” Tieu was attacked by a group of African-American students, according to the lawsuit, and treated at Methodist Hospital Jan. 29, 2009. She contends she was unable to work for a period of time and also must continue to seek medical treatment for her ongoing injuries. Filed July 28, the lawsuit seeks $100,000 in damages from the district and Ackerman, Kane said. The district and Ackerman failed to “protect Asian-American citizens after recurrent instances of racial hostility directed toward them,” according to the lawsuit. Asian-American students were harmed in- and outside of the school Dec. 2 and 3, ’09, in what the students and community leaders deemed racially-motivated attacks. The students, some of whom were attacked in October ’08, boycotted the school for eight days before security measures were put in place by school officials. The suit also listed former Principal Lagreta Brown, who stepped down in May amidst questions of her qualifications. However, Alice Heller was the principal at the time of Tieu’s alleged attack. In an amended version filed Friday, Brown was dropped from the suit.

Two crime scenes Police discovered ballistic evidence wrapping around a Pennsport block Saturday night and apprehended the alleged shooter in Queen Village a short time later. Police responded to shots fired near Fourth and Wharton streets at 7:20 p.m. and found a bullet hole in the front windshield of a black Chrysler 300 and damage to a U.S. Postal Service mailbox on the 300 block of Wharton, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. More ballistics evidence was discovered

After a pickup truck allegedly ran a stop sign, a detectiveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car was almost sideswiped and the two detectives then allegedly were confronted by the driver and passenger of the other vehicle Saturday evening. En route to a crime scene at Fourth and Wharton streets, the detectives were traveling east on Porter Street at 7:25 p.m., Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. At the stop sign at South 16th Street, a 1999 black Chevy Silverado pickup going north on South 16th allegedly ran through the traffic sign and almost slammed into the detectivesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; car. Mario Pavoni, 21, of the 2600 block of South Chadwick Street, and his passenger, Louis Scartoli, 21, of the 2600 block of South Colorado Street, allegedly exited the vehicle as the detectives stepped out of their vehicle and identified themselves as police officers, Tolliver said. Pavoni and Scartoli allegedly yelled and cursed at the detectives, who repeatedly ordered them back into their truck, Tolliver said. The two refused and Pavoni allegedly shoved one detective. The detective attempted to arrest Pavoni, but he allegedly kicked and scratched the detective, Tolliver said. The other detective restrained Scartoli, who allegedly pushed the other detective. The detectives did not seek treatment. Both men were arrested upon arrival of police backup. Police recovered narcotics from Pavoniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car and $595 in cash from Pavoni, Tolliver said. Both were charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and resisting arrest, while Pavoni also was cited for possession.

A local grade schooler captures an award for his resolute dedication to friendship. By Joseph Myers r e v i e w s ta f f w r i t e r

I

nstead of debating over pricey and perhaps counterproductive solutions to the warfare abroad, federal officials should enlist Talib Coffield to teach friendship building skills. Over the last two years, the 11-year-old student from George Washington Elementary School, 1198 S. Fifth St., has made everyday seem like the Christmas season, filling interactions with good cheer. Last Thursday, his upbeat personality garnered him a TD Bank Young Heroes Award at the National Liberty Museum, 321 Chestnut St. The soon-to-be sixth grader has given two sections of Philadelphia a taste of his warm demeanor. Hailing from the Logan section of North Philadelphia, Coffield collected his honor as a token of his rational approach to engaging in activities that unite those with different, yet not necessarily contrasting backgrounds. The recognition boosts the already impressive biography of the young man, who enjoys plowing through biographies himself. “I’ve read stuff on Sacagawea, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Bill Clinton,” Coffield, who was the only South Philadelphia honoree among 39 winners, said. Candy Kean, his fourth and fifth grade teacher, nominated the pupil — who has future aspirations of becoming a lawyer — in the Friendship-Building category. The others honored artistic expression, school/community leadership, volunteer work, political/civic involvement and peer mediation activities. Coffield possesses such an interest in goodwill that Kean also could have nominated him for his roles on the student council, where he serves as the secretary/transcriber, and peer mediation in which he presents conflict resolution plans. “At George Washington Elementary School, new students register virtually any time during the school year. Talib always offers to help them navigate our classroom, the hallways, lunchroom and more,” Kean wrote in her nomination essay. The process called for Kean to select a student whom she felt dedicated or volunteered time to helping others, promoted appreciation for diversity or participated in conflict resolution or violence prevention. Her essay made clear her admiration for her former scholar — the only one

from his class to earn a nomination. “In all of my years of teaching, I have never before seen this type of behavior. Talib does this with any student at any time,” she said, noting his willingness to accept rejected students into his circle. Though matters are clear to Kean, Coffield seems stumped when trying to explain why classmates come to trust him so quickly. “I just try to be their friend. In peer mediation, I help people to get along without any hurt feelings,” he said. According to his mother, Ariana Coffield, he has improved his conduct and has made more friends since he transferred from a North Philadelphia charter school. “Talib just wasn’t learning at the neighborhood school,” his mother said. He found the schooling so futile that he contacted the principal of his first school to see if he could return. “It’s one thing for an adult to realize a child’s potential, but it’s really amazing when children see their own. He made me cry with pride when I heard about his call,” the elder Coffield said. Mother and son decided to transfer to the South Philadelphia school with a history of academic successes. As part of President George W. Bush’s No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, schools must reach benchmarks indicating productive educational outcomes. The act measures a school’s Annual Yearly Progress [AYP], the minimum target level of improvement in reading and math. For the ’08-’09 year, the last for which figures are available, Coffield’s school met all 21 target areas. “It’s a great school,” the youngster, who considers reading his favorite subject, said. HIS NOMINATION PROVES that the school finds him likewise great, and his victory ensures he will continue to be eager to make friends. “I was happy but nervous at the ceremony,” Coffield, who knew in advance that the commendation would be his, said. “I would have liked to have given a speech to let them know how honored I am to have this award.” In her essay, Kean lauded Coffield’s “uncanny way of recognizing when another student is having a bad day or even just a difficult few hours.” His mother credits tragedy with helping her only child to learn fortitude and empathy. “He lost his grandmother when he was

3 and had to see his great-grandmother go through dementia because of Alzheimer’s. He’s always kept going, though,” she said. His next locale may be the prestigious Girard College, a private boarding school serving academically capable first through 12th graders. Kean has spurred Coffield into believing the school could be his new home by September ’11. “Talib and Ms. Kean are a great pair,” his mother said. “Writing the [nomination] letter for him was so kind of her. What she did was heartfelt.” Though Coffield chooses to restrict his friendly advances to those in his grade, he constantly shows off his gregarious disposition when around his elders. “Everywhere we go, it seems Talib knows someone. He’s really learned how to be friendly from his father,” she said of Coley Newkirk, who runs a North-Philadelphia based barbershop. “I work there,” Talib, who helps clean up at the shop, said. While there, he bonds with Temple University students who reside in a building connected to the shop. “Last week we played a game kind of like soccer. My cousin played too. They

called him ‘Meatball,” so I was ‘Spaghetti,’” he said with a laugh. With his third year of schooling in South Philadelphia just weeks away, Talib is striving to maximize his learning capacity. Not having had to attend camp this summer has left his mind free to wander, and he has filled it with more tactics for ensuring that his classmates — more than 30 — remain bubbly throughout the year. The size does not intimidate the grade schooler who sees everyone as a potential friend. “Bad kids are a challenge. They kind of change my attitude, but I still try,” Talib said. Kean will not be his instructor this year, but he and his mother know she will interact with him. “He challenges Ms. Kean,” Ariana said. “He’s always willing to listen.” Like any budding lawyer, however, he has firm convictions. “Usually with Ms. Kean or anybody else, there’s no telling him any different when he knows something is right,” his mother said.

TRANSPLANT continued from page 1 to learning his doctors had found a match. He received a new kidney in 2000 at Hahnemann University Hospital. Arroyo continued to work after his diagnosis and attended dialysis treatments following his work shift. They sometimes lasted until 8:30 or 9 p.m. “Dialysis to me was horrendous,” he said. “For that one year, I lost over 50 pounds. I was feeling really ill. I thought that was the end of my life and along came a lifesaving organ that saved my life.” At last week’s games, Arroyo competed in volleyball, bowling and softball throw. “It’s just an awesome experience,” he said of his third time competing in the games. “I never won a medal, but I already consider myself a winner. I received a kidney. That’s my medal.” At the last games in ’08, 500 individuals represented Team Philly, which consisted of those from eastern Pennsylvania, South Jersey and Delaware and was the largest contingent at the Pittsburgh games and won 150 medals. This year, the team was second in size behind Team Wisconsin and walked away with 27 gold, 35 silver and 30 bronze medals.

Prior to departing for the Badger State, athletes practiced for their designated events that consisted of 14 sports including 5K road race, badminton, basketball, bowling, cycling, golf, racquetball, swimming, table tennis, tennis, track and field and volleyball. It was great to see the athletes enjoying life following their live-saving transplant, Green said. “I think what’s amazing about the games is that all the athletes are recent transplants who are there because someone said yes to donation and these are people who, two years ago, were on that list,” he said. “If they weren’t going to get an organ, they were going to die.…The games really showcase the success of transplantation.” Similar to the Summer Olympics, more than 40 teams from across the country walk in together during an opening ceremonies, with living donors and donor families being honored. “It was probably conservatively a 15-minute standing ovation when the donor families were coming in,” Green said. “It’s a very emotional opening ceremonies.” Medals were presented throughout the games and the event is capped off with extinguishing the torch. “It’s very touching to see all the donor families that are there and they’re very happy for us,” Arroyo said. “They did a

Six years later, 70 athletes from the Midwest gathered in Minnesota paving the way for the National Kidney Founda-

tion’s official launch of the U.S. Transplant Games. This event began in ’90 with 400 athletes and 600 supporters and has grown more than five times to 2,000 athletes ranging from age 2 to 85 and 8,000 supporters. Patricia Nelson and her youngest daughter Alison, 20, were two of those supporters last week attending the event for the first time. “My daughter and I rented bicycles because it’s constant, so we were actually able to jump from event to event and not have to wait for the shuttles,” Patricia said. As a result of their rentals, they took in about 80 percent of the games and ceremonies, she said. “It was just simply amazing to see all these people come together to truly celebrate life regardless of what side you were on,” she said noting donors, recipients and donor families. “It was one big celebration that just renewed my spirit.” Patricia, who lost her son, David Nelson Jr., at age 26 in 2006. “When he was getting his driver’s license, we had a brief conversation on organ donation,” Patricia said. “The No. 1 common myth people think is if they’re * injured on the side of the road, ino the para-

News continued from previous page medics wouldn’t try to save them, so we had a conversation about that.” After dispelling the myth, David became an organ donor at age 21. When he passed, his heart, lungs, kidneys and pancreas along with bones and tissues were donated. In ’08, Patricia and students at Furness High School, 1900 S. Third St., including Alvin Way, who passed away after running in the 5K Dash for Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness in ’08, began a Gift of Life Club “He was the only student that came to my son’s funeral,” Patricia, Furness’ school operations officer, said of Way. “He became my buddy. I’m sure they’re both looking down on us applauding all that we do.” The Nelson family had the pleasure of recently meeting the man whose life was saved by David’s heart and hopes to someday meet the other recipients of his organs. “We don’t look for much in return, just to be able to promote this and see the positive effect it has on other people,” Patricia said. While Arroyo has not met his 25-year-old transplant’s family, he hopes to one day. “To me, it’s just hard to put into words how grateful I am to have received this organ,” he said. “I would just want to show [the donor’s family] how grateful I am that they gave me

this chance — my second chance at life — to be able to get off of dialysis [and] to thank them … I never lose hope that someday I will meet my donor family.” Now he spends his time alerting others about the simple, life-saving measure of donating organs by volunteering for the Gift of Life. “I try to talk to people in South Philly about it and some people don’t want to talk about being a registered organ donor and then when it hits home, they call me and are like, ‘Hey George, what it’s like? What’s the process?’” Alison hopes to mentor children who received transplants at Camp Jeremy next summer while Patricia has already had an impact on Furness students. “In our little group we started everyone is a donor,” she said. “I actually had three or four seniors come up to me displaying proudly their driver’s licenses with organ donor on their license. We are making an difference however small for those people who are waiting for another chance of life.” SPR To learn more about the Gift of Life Donor Program or to sign up to be a donor, visit www.donors1.org.

RACCOONS continued from page 1 cats, the inhabitants have begun to address how to place the mammals in a more traditional setting. The responses they have received, however, have not comforted them. “We have contacted multiple city agencies and were told they do not handle raccoons in the neighborhoods and it is normal for them to be in the area,” a resident who requested anonymity, said. Another resident, who also requested her name be withheld, orchestrated the removal of two raccoons last month, yet at least a quartet of successors has kept her and her blockmates scared for their plants and pets. Highly nocturnal, the raccoons have made rare daylight appearances, but those neighborhood cameos, according to the first resident, have resulted in attacks on stray cats and squirrels. The new vagabonds, which the second resident suspects are the children of the removed pair, also have uprooted plants. “I haven’t seen any attacks. They’re playful, from what I’ve seen, but we want them out of here, and we think the city should be more helpful,” the second resident noted. She estimates the raccoons are at least one foot long, making it possible that they can be the offspring of the others. According to the Pennsylvania Game Commission, sizes of adult raccoons range from 28 In this photo illustration, three eager raccoons defy their typical behavior by engaging in daylight debauchery on the 2800 block of South 11th Street. to 38 inches, yet she would not put them S ta f f p h o t o b y G r e g B e z a n i s • P h o t o I l l u s t r at i o n b y B r e n d a n M o s s at that size. “I haven’t been that close to them,” she PSPCA Director of Public Relations The second anonymous resident respects dren may become infected by coming into said with a smile.

All in the family The eighth of 10 children from a West Passyunk rowhome, Eleanor Kerrigan is bringing her local brand of humor to the Borgata Atlantic City. By Jess Fuerst Review Contributor

s a young girl growing up just off Passyunk Avenue, Eleanor Kerrigan didn’t want to be a comic. In fact, she never wanted to be a comic. But sometimes these things just happen. “He started me. We did a TV show about four years ago, then I started a one-woman show and he was like, “You are doing stand-up.” And I was like, ‘No, no, this is different,’ Kerrigan said of longtime friend and fellow comic Andrew Dice Clay, who she has been opening for going on two years. Kerrigan, now a full-time stand-up comedian, owes much of her success to the urgings of Clay, whom she performs with six nights a week at the Las Vegas Hilton. The duo has a running show two weeks out of every month in Sin City. Kerrigan, however, will be taking a short break to perform closer to home. “I’m skipping a week to do my Borgata show,” Kerrigan, who will perform at the Borgata Comedy Club Aug. 16 to 19, said. “We are 10 [siblings] and my mom’s sister had 10 [kids]. My family is less like a family and more like a tribe. “If everyone in my family bought a ticket we’d need more seats.” Still, Kerrigan, the eighth of six brothers and three sisters that shared a one-family rowhome at 18th and Jackson streets, believes every member of her tight-knit group will be in attendance next week. Besides, it beats her usual home venue. “The Nick’s Roast beef in Springfield. Years ago, when they expanded, my brother worked for him and he loved him and he went over and helped him open it. He makes me do stand-up there,” Kerrigan, 39, said. “They are there and eating roast beef and fries and the last thing they want to hear is some chick talking about her nine brothers continued on page 16

LIFESTYLES continued from page 14 and sisters.” Luckily, her brothers and sisters want nothing more than to hear Kerrigan relay family stories about former childhood pets — which included an alligator — a colossal canopy bed that crowded the girls’ room and the quirks of her parents. “I’ll just make fun of my family, just keep it to that,” Kerrigan said of the upcoming New Jersey show. “My dad owns a typewriter store on 20th and Porter, so I pick on him a lot. He said, ‘This year I’m closing ’cause it’s a recession, girl!’ Like really? The recession is what was hurting the typewriter business? “He repairs and sells typewriters, and he brought in a couple adding machines, so he thought he was really branching out. He won’t even come see me. He says ’cause I make fun of him too much.” This, too, is a joke, and her father comes to see Kerrigan perform with the rest of the group that is a good sport about being the butt of many jokes. And although Los Angeles, Calif., is where she now calls home base, making it back to her childhood home at least four times a year provides just the right dose of TLC, reality and material.

gan perfected her act and now, as is the case with the Borgata, she is a headliner. Though she is yet to be back to conquer the New York crowd, it’s on her to-do list. Doing what she loves for a living is satisfying enough, but the West Coast can get lonely for a South Philly girl. “I missed the food. When I moved, I was like, ‘Do they have restaurants here? I don’t want steam for dinner.’ Meat and cheese! No, we’re Jewish, don’t be silly,” Kerrigan said. Through her bumpy climb to the top — which now seems worth the trouble — she was always fine knowing she had family on her side. “They love [that I’m a comic]. They were kind of surprised ’cause I worked and never went on stage and they would beg me to do stuff and I never did and I would just say I was an actress not a comic. So proud, my mom really wanted to be an actress … she’s living vicariously though me,” Kerrigan said. “And my brothers and sisters just love it. I’m saying the worst things about them and they love it. I don’t think they even hear it, they just hear their name.” SPR For tickets to see Eleanor Kerrigan on stage, visit www.theborgata.com.

Love as a battlefield

Cardella

By Tom Cardella Columnist

Training camp

I

n the hinterlands of the Lehigh Valley, where the milk is pure and the prices are controlled, each August a ritual is performed known as Eagles training camp. In the past, the Eagles also held it in places such as Hershey and West Chester. The locale is always bucolic and what is more important, far from the Babylonian temptations of the big city. Football players are known to be particularly susceptible to the temptations of the flesh. As far as the training camp ritual, the Eagles are not different from other NFL teams, except others are more likely to have won a championship more recently than 1960. Training camp is the NFL version of basic training in the military. The highly paid athletes are sequestered away from wives and girlfriends (sometimes both) in order to keep them focused on preparing for the coming season. Instead of five-star hotels, the players live in the relatively Spartan atmosphere of college dorms. They get to engage in manly contact under an August sun, sign autographs for their adoring fans, and answer questions from the media about Michael Vick. The players also are subject to curfew (reference the temptations of the flesh, available even in bucolic surroundings). In short, they hate training camp with the same intensity I reserve for disco. The Eagles own a state-of-the-art training facility in South Philadelphia. It has everything one could hope for to get ready for the season. You might ask, “Why does the team choose to seclude itself in Lehigh where the players live like juveniles at summer camp (you can almost hear Allan Sherman singing, “Hello Mudda. Hello Fadda. Here I am in Camp Granada …”)? How many times do I have to remind you about the temptations of the flesh? Football, as you know, is essentially a cold-weather sport. Yet, pro camps are held in humid, 90-degree weather. Players in pads and helmets sometimes suffer heat stroke during camp. Occasionally, one will even die. Baseball is a warm-weather sport. In February, teams travel to places in Florida and Arizona to prepare for their season. Why don’t football teams hold their camps in cold-weather sites, such as Maine and Canada? Football players consider themselves tougher than baseball players, but

guess which ones are smarter? Today’s professional athlete no longer has to sell suits or automobiles in the off-season. He comes to camp already in shape. There really is no need for contact drills and four pre-season games unless your goal is to injure as many of your players as possible before the regular season. In pro football, injuries during camp are considered part of its macho charm. Some veteran players are not charmed. These players are more interested in self-preservation. They avoid camp at all costs. Former Eagle Mike Quick used to invent salary disputes each August just to stay out. Brett Favre has come up with a unique solution. He retires at the end of every season and then un-retires at the beginning of the regular season. Favre is so smart, he should have been a baseball player. Another charming quality about football is this is a sport where a 350-pound head coach screams at his players to get in shape. Sometimes he even fines them. No one thinks this is at all unusual. Getting players away from their families to avoid distractions hasn’t always worked. At night some players get bored and look for action. One year an Eagles player got drunk and exposed himself to a barmaid. She wasn’t impressed and went to the cops. Last year, a couple of Eagles got caught trying to sneak women into their dorm room after curfew. Did they think they were back at college? They made a wrong turn and got stopped by the local police. It wouldn’t have been so bad, but the police found some of those funny, hand-rolled cigarettes in the car. It didn’t help that one of the players was married. Maybe coach Andy Reid should run his camp like any kids’ camp: He can keep his guys occupied by singing songs around a campfire. Anyone for s’mores? To be fair, Eagles fans love training camp with an unexplained passion. They find there is nothing quite like sitting under the hot sun, munching a $4 hot dog, drinking a can of lite beer and watching players practice. Perhaps it is the 90-minute drive to Lehigh that attracts them or the fun of wearing their favorite player’s jersey and having him ignore your pleas for an autograph. Sal Paolantonio once wrote a book, “Why Football Explains America.” I don’t pretend to understand either one. SPR Comment at www.southphillyreview.com/opinion/cardella.

Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) faces foes of all sorts in order to win the heart of Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead).

By R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer

I

t’s easy to fall for the genre-defying, era-defining slacker adventure “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” and plenty of viewers ages 16 to 26 will count it among their favorite films. A hyperkinetic pop collage of comics, video games, rock music, television, animation and ultra-modern lingo, it has its fashionable finger right on the pulse of contemporary youth culture, and it’s composed of all the endless media contemporary youth has grown up with. Not to disclude the effects of such exposure, it’s also a coolly berserk bit of ADHD filmmaking, representative of the very current need to constantly refresh. If you took a fast-talking 1940s flick, linked it to the pseudo-counterculture witticisms of the recent hipster boom, then filtered it through a dusty, turn-of-the-millennium PC, you’d have the tone of the movie, which proceeds with such breathless haste it finishes characters’ sentences with imagery from the next scene. Directed by Edgar Wright, based on Bryan Lee O’Malley’s graphic novels and starring a slew of bright young things, it centers on the titular hero (Michael Cera), a 23-year-old Canadian bassist who must battle, “Street Fighterstyle,” the “seven evil exes” of his new squeeze (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). That last part is a rather late-arriving development that, with its arcade-like sequences, will flabbergast those unaware of what they’re in for. But even for those who are, “Scott Pilgrim” is an awful lot to absorb — too much. It’s funny, and it’s

in fine control of its out-of-controlness, but it’s obnoxious, tedious and terminally sarcastic. By the time the third wisecracking, of-the-moment opponent showed up (one’s a vegan, another a lesbian), I was more than ready to cash in my tokens. “Scott Pilgrim” may be an on-point sign of the times, but that ain’t enough to make a great movie, nor is it as great a thing as this movie thinks it is. The film’s speech and style are so frantically, head-spinningly hip, it sort of makes you want to wage your own war against the world.

hen it comes to summer fare, mustard — all varieties of it — makes a regular appearance at the table. The condiment is the perfect topper for hamburgers and hot dogs or can be mixed into a salad dressing. But Theresa Mavellano prefers a dash of Dijon in her Tomato Fettuccine. The resident of the 1500 block of Forrestal Street uses antioxidants, like basil and tomatoes, for her pasta, helping those who indulge stay fit for the last few weeks of the summer season. Theresa said this “great dish” also is easy to make. SPR

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

O

ne of the perks of city living is the farmer’s markets that dot the neighborhoods during the summer and fall. Two weeks ago, while walking around Rittenhouse Square, I bought luscious Pennsylvania peaches and nectarines. The next stand featured baked goods and breads. I struck up a conversation with one of the bakers. As always, talk turned to food because I told him I was trying to decide what to prepare for dinner. He told me about a small café run by a husband and wife in Haddonfield, N.J. On a brutally hot and humid evening, Edward and I headed across the Ben Franklin for shopping and dinner. What is most striking about the town is, although there is a Starbucks, the majority of the shops are independently owned. Mediterranean Café is a tiny place. The BYOB, which seats 20, has an eye-catching patio with tables, colorful umbrellas and a lovely garden. The wife is a bubbly woman who described each dish in intimate detail. “The soup of the day is Swiss chard,” she said. “Swiss chard is similar to spinach, but you get the idea.” The soup ($3.95) was a good-sized bowl made with vegetable stock. It contained sliced carrots, fennel, celery, tomatoes and the aforementioned Swiss chard. It lacked seasoning, but salt and pepper pepped it up a bit. Since it was a thin soup, I thought it needed small white beans or tiny pasta to give it body. My favorite part of an Eastern Mediterranean meal is the platter of appetizers and Fast Break

warm pita that accompany it. The pita arrived in a pretty copper oblong container lined with a colorful paisley napkin. The sampler ($9.95) featured hummus, mirza, dolmeh, falafel, some cool, tiny diced vegetables fragrant with mint and a few slightly salty Kalamata olives. Except for the mirza, I have savored each item on this sampler in Israel and numerous Middle-Eastern restaurants throughout the country. The hummus was topped with a tiny pool of olive oil, but needed salt. Mirza is a chopped salad of roasted eggplant mixed with roasted tomatoes. It, too, needed salt. (I understand some people are watching their salt intake, but there are times when a sprinkling of this once-precious commodity is called for.) Dolmeh, or grape leaves, were filled with rice laced with lemon juice. One large falafel was destined to be cut in half. It was coated in crumbs and may have been baked in the oven rather than fried because it was totally free of grease. The platter overall was generous — actually three people could have shared it. Fried Spanish cheese ($8.95) consisted of four rectangular slices of dense cheese that were well-seasoned. In Greece, this cheese is called haloumi. I asked the wife about it since I assumed it came from Spain. Her husband, the chef, an affable man from Iran, told us the cheese was made in Wisconsin. It was uncommonly good. Dinners come with a house salad. Unfortunately, the mixed greens topped with

beans were drowned in much too much balsamic vinaigrette. This dressing is not used in Middle-Eastern cuisines. Lemon juice is the acid of choice, although red wine vinegar pops up now and then. I ordered the lamb kabob dinner ($16.95) medium-rare while Edward selected the falafel dinner ($12.95). I received dreary overcooked lamb, which was gray in color and certainly not rosy-pink. It imparted a strange flavor of part sweet and part salt. The husband whisked it away and brought me another. It was a near repeat of the previous order. “I marinate the lamb in balsamic vinegar,” he said. It ruined the juicy succulence lamb must have. Still, I enjoyed the grilled vegetables that came with it, along with a large mound of perfectly cooked, fragrant basmati rice. The falafel platter also came with rice

and vegetables. We particularly liked the grilled asparagus and grilled whole baby red and yellow peppers. I usually call long green squash the “dreaded zucchini,” but I give credit to the chef. He dried the squash and set it on the grill. I sprinkled on the salt and enjoyed. When we received the check, my dinner was removed from it. Mediterranean Café is a vegetarian heaven. The majority of dishes are vegetarian and the prices cannot be beat. Two tips of the toque to Mediterranean Café. SPR

During the peak of corn season, grab it by the ear and get creative. Late author Elisabeth Rozin is a good source for recipes beyond the simple butter-and-grill technique. By Phyllis Stein-Novack Food Columnist

C

orn and tomatoes form the basis for dinner at our home during the summer months. Sometimes I just slice a juicy, red, ripe Jersey or Lancaster County tomato and sprinkle it with kosher salt. I am more creative with local corn. Although I adore it slathered with melted butter, finding new ways with this summer staple is fun. Corn is best enjoyed the day you buy it. It can be tossed on the grill, cooked in boiling water for a few minutes or zapped in the microwave. I shuck each ear, drizzle it with water, wrap it in plastic and cook it on high for two minutes, then turn and cook for another two minutes. When summer corn is waning, I buy ears and ears to freeze. Simply run a sharp knife down the kernels, place in a freezer bag and freeze. Then, on a dreary November day or snowy December evening, a bit of summer brightens up the dinner table. I make concoctions or peruse my cookbooks for inspiration. A recipe is not written in stone. It is a guide. Corn, or what Native-Americans called maize, is a New World food. It has many uses. Corn can be turned into corn oil, the dreaded high fructose corn syrup, corn meal and grits. I love grits with butter and kosher salt. I would rather have grits as a side than hash browns at breakfast.

One of the finest books on my shelf is “Blue Corn and Chocolate,” written by my friend, food historian and author Elisabeth Rozin. Liz passed away a few years ago and I miss her wise counsel. Her inscription on my copy reads: “For Phyllis, sister and friend. Keep at it, baby!” The “keep at it” means writing and publishing. Liz wrote a number of books. I tested recipes for her last book “The Universal Kitchen.” She enjoyed my columns and knew I was working on a new cookbook.

■ Confetti Corn Custard ■ Ingredients:

2 tablespoons of butter 1 medium onion, minced 1 medium sweet red pepper, seeded and diced 1 stalk of celery, diced 1 carrot, diced Corn kernels from five ears of corn 2 cups of light cream 1/2 teaspoon of salt 1/2 tablespoon of sugar Several good grinds of black pepper Good dash of cayenne pepper 1/4 teaspoon of mace 2 eggs 1 tablespoon of flour

Directions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Heat the butter over medium in a saucepan. Add the next four ingredients and

sauté, stirring occasionally, until the onion is wilted. Add the corn, cream and seasonings. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, over moderate heat for about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool slightly. Whisk the eggs and thoroughly stir in the flour. Stir the eggs into the corn mixture and blend well. Turn the mixture into a buttered 2-quart casserole or baking dish. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until the custard is set and the top is lightly browned. Let stand for a few minutes before serving. Serves six to eight.

corn. Bring to a simmer, remove from the heat, drain and set aside. Sauté the onion in the butter until wilted. Add the tomato and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until the tomato is soft and the liquid is somewhat reduced. Stir in the salt, pepper, nutmeg and cream. Add the beans and corn and cook over low until the mixture comes to a simmer. Remove from heat and stir in the Parmesan. Taste and correct for salt and pepper. Serve hot. Serves four to six.

■ Super Succotash ■

Note from Phyllis: Rozin writes, “Succotash is the early colonists rendering of an unpronounceable Narragansett word — msickquatasch, which meant a dish of whole corn and beans cooked together. Many different mixtures of corn and beans, both fresh and dried, were used, but the North American version most quickly adopted by European emigrants was fresh green lima beans and fresh sweet corn stewed together and lightly sweetened. The colonists enriched this mixture with butter and cream. Succotash can be a very simple dish or, like this one, rather more elaborate. The Parmesan is unorthodox, but good.” SPR

Ingredients:

2 cups of shelled small fresh green lima beans or 1 10-ounce package of frozen baby lima beans 2 cups of fresh corn kernels 1 medium onion, finely chopped 1 tablespoon of butter 1 large ripe tomato, coarsely chopped 1/4 teaspoon of salt Several good grinds of black pepper 1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg 1/4 cup of light cream 1 to 2 tablespoons of Parmesan, finely grated

Directions: Boil the beans in salted water for about five minutes or until just tender. Add the

QUINLAN

Quinlan wants nothing more in this world than to play with his toys! He is a yearold pit bull mix who has energy to spare, and is looking for a buddy to play with. Quinlan’s been working with our Behavior Team and is learning the basics including sit, down, stay, and to control his impulses around toys (his favorite things). He is very friendly, but is likely too strong to live in a home with young children, as he might accidentally topple them during playtime. Quinlan may be OK to live in a home with other pets, so bring your entire family to the Pennsylvania SPCA, 350 E. Erie Ave., contact www.pspca.org or 215-426-6300 today if you would like to meet him. He’ll be ready to play when you get here!

Son, If I could gather up all the smiles, laughs, memories and pride that you have brought me through the years and give them back to you, I would. Maybe that way you’d understand just what it means to have a wonderful son like you and why I celebrate your birthday and life with joy and love. You are my special gift from God. I love you with all my heart: Mommy. We all love you from the top of your head to the bottom of your toes. Mommy and Family. Thank you Kim and Jaime for making my 10th birthday “magical.” Thank you Uncle Joey for being a special part of my life every day. Everytime I see a butterfly I know it is you.

‘I had offers from other places, but I felt like I didn’t want to waste anybody’s time by continuing to visit places.” — Mike Zolk on picking North Carolina

A Zoom with a view

By Joseph Myers r e v i e w s ta f f w r i t e r

H

e calls Northeast Philadelphia home, but Mike “Zoom” Zolk cultivates a deep-rooted fondness for South Philadelphia. This time next year, he will begin to tend to new patches. On Aug. 4, the 17-year-old second baseman made a verbal commitment to the University of North Carolina, where he will trade the gold and black of the Saints for the white and blue of the Tar Heels. The senior-to-be, had occupied a prominent spot on UNC’s radar since his freshman year at North Catholic High School. The Parkwood resident transferred prior to the 2009-’10 school year and immediately strengthened one of the Catholic League’s most ruthless lineups. “I had offers from other places, but I felt like I didn’t want to waste anybody’s time by continuing to visit places,” Zolk, who batted .604 in 22 games, said. His other choices included three Florida schools and the University of Maryland, but Zolk picked the Chapel-Hill based campus with a prolific basketball tradition. “The baseball team is good, too. Those guys are usually in the Top25,” he said of the Atlantic Coast Conference member, which had made four straight College World Series appearances before falling in last June’s Regional in Oklahoma. Zolk has grown accustomed to being “good,” including three straight seasons of All-Catholic recognition. He also had spent the entirety of his summer traveling to tournaments until last week’s well-earned trip to the Mike Zolk, who earned a First Team All-Catholic nod as a junior, hopes to leave 10th and Moore streets with a state championship. s ta f f p h o t o b y greg bezanis

Ahead of his senior season, NeumannGoretti’s second sacker committed to an elite Division I program

Jersey Shore. “After [last June’s] Carpenter Cup, he went to Maryland, Virginia, Georgia, North Carolina and New Jersey for the 17and 18-and-under Blue Chip Prospects tournament,” his father Michael said. “We had known he was getting attention, but now it’s great that we know where he’s

going to be.” Though Zolk has no family in the Old North State, a strong group of friends and on-field opponents will facilitate his Southern pilgrimage. While away, he may add another accent. “He’s definitely gained a South Philly accent by being down here,” the elder Zolk said. “[Neumann-Goretti coach] Lou [Spadaccini] told me and my wife [DeeDee] it would happen, but we didn’t believe him. My son definitely has an Italian accent now.” But he always has had a strong work ethic and a humble nature. “I tell my son to watch how Mike plays,” Spadaccini said. “‘Zoom’ is an absolute pleasure to coach.” WITH ZOLK’S -HANDED strokes, the Saints finished 18-4, an outstanding mark by most accounts. But the season ended well short of the team’s expectations, as a loss to Monsignor Bonner High School in the Catholic League playoffs prevented the boys from defending last year’s crown. The defeat also erased a shot to participate in the PIAA State Championships, where they advanced to last year’s Class AAA semifinals. “Before I go to North Carolina, my goal for this year is winning the state championship,” Zolk said. “I can’t wait for the season.” With Neumann-Goretti’s three core players — Catholic League Blue MVP Mark Donato, First Team All-Catholic selections Al Baur and Michael Riverso — lost to graduation, Zolk covets the chance to guide his teammates. LEFT

“He’s a gritty player,” his father said. “North Carolina seemed really enthused with his ability to be low-key and fired-up simultaneously.” Being both at the same time represents one in a series of ironies for Zolk, who plans to major in Sports Medicine with the goal of being a physical trainer. One might expect someone whose nickname connotes quickness to be a speedster, but he admits becoming a faster runner has become his personal goal. His sobriquet, which along with his last name forms an uncommon alliterative pair, in fact has nothing to do with his footwork. “It comes from a Mazda commercial,” Zolk, referring to a popular car advertisement in which a boy utters “Zoom-Zoom” at the conclusion, said. “A soccer coach thought I looked like the kid in the commercial. I’ve had the nickname for nine or 10 years.” Over those years and even those from the beginning of his life, Zolk has had no time to rest on his laurels because he has had little time to recharge. “He started with machine pitch at 4 and joined his first travel team at 6,” his father said, reiterating his lone son’s boundless love for baseball. That nonstop passion has meant that his immediate family has yet to enjoy a carefree summer. “My mom and sister [14-year-old Erica] have been great. They have really made big sacrifices for me,” Zolk, who is showcasing his talents this summer for the New Jersey Super 17s all-star team, said. The quick 20-minute commute to South Philadelphia, means the affable slugger has started a solid second family. “I love it in South Philly. I hang out with guys down here. I don’t even hang out with guys from my neighborhood,” he said. His new companions, especially Spadaccini, have become ignited courtesy of his spark. “Mike is an even better young man than he is a baseball player because he’s grounded and that’s a tribute to his parents,” Spadaccini, who will be entering his fifth season as coach, said. “He is by far our biggest [college] recruit ... Mike’s going to be a huge part of the better toughness we’ll need this year.” SPR Contact Staff Writer Joseph Myers at jmyers@ southphillyreview.com or ext. 124.
