t’s always good to start where you’re from,” Markeem Kendall said Monday from Fishtown’s Waterview Lounge. The 33-year-old, formerly of Seventh Street and Snyder Avenue, has owned the 1,900-square-foot space since June and has headed the nonprofit Stop the Madness Foundation for eight years. The latter will help the entrepreneur to continue to confer his community care when he hosts his first Back to School Block Party Sept. 1 on the 1900 block of South Sixth Street.

ain rushed the Soccer Sisters United Soccer Club off Smith Playground, 2100 S. 24th St., Friday evening, sending 17 sets of talented legs scampering. Securing shelter mattered more than converting kicks for one night, but the nation next year will learn the girls have forged quests with setting and netting
literal and figurative goals. A documentary will laud the AfricanAmerican youngsters, who have extended their predecessors’ legacy as gifted athletes hoping to overcome stereotypes and scarce resources to achieve greatness. Just more than a third of the players who receive year-round instruction from coach Walter Stewart, the competitors engaged in drills before their exodus. They share the West Passyunk space with teams from
other sports but will soon own the limelight courtesy of filmmaker Eugene Martin, one of many victims of their talents. “He approached us in late 2007 or early 2008,” Roxborough’s Stewart said of Martin, a Temple University graduate and a University of North Texas assistant professor of radio, television and film who once led a Chestnut Hill team.

â€œI was in the shower at the time. I have a fear that my shower is going to fall through so I thought my worst nightmare was coming true.â€? Mike Lankheet, Broad and Jackson streets

Stimulating conversation To the Editor: My friend Ron Mento never ceases to amaze me (â€œA view from the right,â€? Aug. 18). He has figured out a way to blame the left and, in particular, the Democrats for everything that ails this country. Experts from both political parties agree that President Bushâ€™s early personnel choices and overarching antipathy toward regulation created a climate that, if it did not trigger the great recession of 2008, almost certainly aggravated it. He also signed the big bank and corporate bailout known as TARP. What I find most disingenuous about Ronâ€™s accusations is his claim that 50 percent of the citizens of this country (aka the poor) pay no income taxes. That is because they earn only a little more than $22,000 for a family of four. Excuse me, but they still have to pay wage taxes, Medicare and Social Security taxes or property taxes if they own anything. I am troubled by his assertion that â€œDemocrats stand for entitlements without earning them.â€? I hope he does not mean Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, all of which are safety nets for the elderly and the disabled and all are paid for out of wages earned. And why should we pity the billionaires who keep their assets locked in hedge funds with no tax at all on their capital gains? With help from the Bush tax cuts, non-banking corporations are sitting on about $2 trillion in cash and are not using that money to create jobs. If the private sector wonâ€™t produce jobs, the government must step in. All economists agree that one way to cure a recession is for government to spend stimulus money. It has helped a lot but did not go far enough. I am sure Philadelphia made use of that money to repair water mains and other infrastructure. We have already tried an unregulated free market that Alan Greenspan claimed could regulate itself. It didnâ€™t, and that is the main reason we are in this turmoil. We need to admit that everyone made mistakes, so correct them. That is what we must take with us to the voting booth in 2012. Gloria C. Endres South Philadelphia

To the Editor: Thank you Ron Mento Sr. You said what a lot of us have been thinking.
I am so sick and tired of everyone blaming George Bush. People donâ€™t even know what is going on in the world, but they sure know the schedules for the games. The Democrats want the people to be totally reliant on the government because it gets them votes. Some day there wonâ€™t be any more freebies, then what? Go to work like the rest of us. Take responsibility for your children or elect not to have them. God gave us a brain and the ability to do with our lives what we choose. The elected officials donâ€™t want the health-care plan they proposed for us. It is not good enough for them! They donâ€™t have to worry about their quality of life because they will be rich with the best benefits and retirement possible for as long as they live. It is time to get them out of office. Democrat or Republican â€” it doesnâ€™t matter. We need major change in the next election Those that are for the people, by the people, not screw the people.

Leaving his landmark
oey Vento, the founder and owner of the South Philadelphia institution Genoâ€™s Steaks, 1219 S. Ninth St. died Tuesday night of a heart attack. He was 71. Vento started the business â€” named after his son â€” in 1966 with $6 in his pocket, two boxes of steaks and some hot dogs, according to Genoâ€™s website. More than four decades later, his creation remains so popular that hungry patrons line up all times of day to order sandwiches wit or wit-out.

Fumo may do more time A federal appeals court threw out the sentence for the previously convicted state senator. By Amanda L. Snyder Review Managing Editor
he U.S. Court of Appeals Third Circuit did not overturn the convictions of a former politician credited with defrauding the state senate and two nonprofits along with his former aide, but the judges’ panel did order the duo to be r e - sentenced. “… we affirm [ex-state Sen. Vince] Fumo’s conviction, vacate the sentences Vince Fumo of both Fumo and [former Citizens Alliance for Better Neighborhoods’ executive director Ruth] Arnao, and remand for further proceedings not inconsistent with this opinion,” Judge Julio M. Fuentes said in his opinion that Judges Leonard L. Garth and Richard L. Nygaard concurred on with the exception of Nygaard dissenting on the vacated sentences. Both were convicted of fraud, tax evasion and obstructing justice. Arnao was released from jail July 14, 2010 while her former boss was expected to be released two years from tomorrow. A presentencing report calculated Fumo’s and Arnao’s sentences at about 21 to 27 years and 9 to 11 years, respectively. Public outcry and an appeal from the government followed Fumo’s 137-count conviction that resulted in a four-yearand-seven-month sentence and Arnao’s 45-count conviction that put her in prison for a year and a day. Upon review, the sentences could become lengthier for the former and send the latter back to prison. The judges did not find any court errors regarding Fumo’s appeals — the testimony of a witness on the state’s ethics act or the influence of social media and outside influences on the jurors — however, all but Nygaard felt the court erred in calculating their sentences, according to the opinion. “… the District Court’s failure to calculate a final guidelines range — leaving us unable to review the procedural and substantive bases of the sentence — is an error that is plain, that affects the substantial rights of the parties and that could ‘seri-
ously affect the fairness, integrity or public reputation of judicial proceedings.’” Fuentes wrote citing a 2009 federal case. The opinion asked the court to take another look at the fraud losses and to recalculate the sentencing ranges. “We are pleased with the decision of the Third Circuit Court of Appeals and will prepare for the next step in the process,” U.S. Attorney Zane David Memeger said in a statement Tuesday.
Juvenile rampage A group of teens comprising of both genders assaulted an elderly man in West Passyunk Monday night. Three girls and nine boys ages 12 to 17 surrounded an 81-year-old at 9 p.m. near Smith Playground’s basketball courts on the 2200 block of South 25th Street, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The group of youngsters punched and kicked the senior until he fell to the ground. During the assault, some asked, “Where’s the money?” and “You got some money?” The senior tried to stand up, but he was quickly forced to the pavement again. The teens then dispersed for an unknown reason in different directions, Tolliver said. They didn’t take anything from the man, but he bruised his torso and scraped his left elbow during the attack, Tolliver said. He did not seek medical treatment. To report information, call South Detectives’ tip line at 215-685-1635 or visit www.phillypolice.com/forms.
Bank-account robbed A man forced another to withdraw money from a Whitman ATM last week. The unknown man riding a bicycle approached a 19-year-old as he was in front of an ATM at Fourth and Wolf streets at 11:15 p.m. Aug. 17, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The biker hopped off his mode of transportation, placed his handgun against the teen’s back and said, “take out all the money out or I’ll blow out your spine.” The man obliged and withdrew $160, which he handed over to the man who fled south on Fourth on his bike, Tolliver said.

A senior allowed a duo into his Newbold home because he thought they were his medical workers, but in actuality, they were there to rob him Monday morning. An unknown man and woman knocked on the 85-year-old’s door, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. Since he thought they were his medical helpers, he invited them in at 8 a.m. Inside the home on the 2200 block of South Carlisle Street, the woman rummaged through the man’s pockets and said she needed cash to get to New Jersey while the man disconnected the resident’s home phone, Tolliver said. The two fled in an unknown direction with $100, but did not harm the man. The woman was described as black, age 30, 5-foot-6, having a medium build and wearing a purple dress while the man was described as black, age 20, 5-foot-7, thin and wearing a white T-shirt.

About a dozen shots were heard on a Gray Ferry street with two striking a teen riding a bike last week. A 14- and two 18-year-old males were cruising east along the 2600 block of Snyder Avenue on their bicycles at 11:13 p.m. Aug. 17, but when they turned north on to 26th Street, they heard about 10 to 15 shots behind them, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. Two of the bullets struck one of the older teens in the right thigh. Those unscathed fled east on Point Breeze Avenue while the wounded man fled west at the intersection and soon collapsed on the street where police found him, Tolliver said. He was transported to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and immediately rushed into surgery. Police did not locate any ballistics evidence or surveillance cameras at the scene, Tolliver said. None of the teens spotted the shooter or shooters.

Along with nurturing his goal to help children, South Philadelphia yielded his career path. “I started in business and entertainment in 1998,” he said of his beginnings as a music manager. The often cutthroat music world failed to intimidate Kendall, increasing his life’s mantra that helping others is vital. His magnanimity led him to create his foundation, which serves as a form of therapy for the father of five who grew up without his own patriarch to offer support. “This is the most critical time to help young people,” he said, citing the lack of father figures and the abundance of “kids having kids” as the chief deterrents to communal stability. Last year Kendall formed Madness Studios, a multimedia company that focuses on graphic design, photography, videography and web development. He abstains from self-aggrandizement, instead choosing to see himself as someone who heard enough positive messages and maximized their intent. He will see how far his instruction can resonate when 50 to 100 children arrive for supplies Sept. 1. The gathering will begin at 2 p.m. and will last for four hours. “I know every kid, too,” he said of the depth of his enthusiasm for assisting each child’s future. He will distribute stationery and gift cards for trips to barbershops and salons. Workshops will address resume composition, job interviews, proper attire for the interviews, as well as college and job applications. He has launched a clothing line, Madness Designs, and will have someone dressed as a mad scientist to deliver science tutorials to the attendees. “I hope to do many events within the school year,” he said of wishes to address kindergartners through high schoolers.

Markeem Kendall, right, is gearing up for his organization’s first back to school event. He and his fellow philanthropists are eager to alleviate families’ shopping concerns. S ta f f P h o t o s b y G r e g B e z a n i s
Next month, he will have an opportunity to help the latter, as he will embark on a 15-stop tour of high schools to address maturity and responsibility. As of Monday, he had not received his schedule but was hopeful South Philadelphia students would hear his words. The former rapper knows how to spin tales and is eager to be able to give youngsters chances to wield their wits as Madness Studios interns. “I would love to be the one who kickstarts their ambition,” Kendall said. TWO DAYS AFTER Kendall holds his event, Ella Best and the other members of Don’t Shoot will keep Grays Ferry’s youths from fretting over having gear for the new school year. Their organization’s second annual Back to School Drive will work to enliven a community that has been a steady victim of violence over the last two years. “Everyone has been so helpful with donations,” Best said Monday from her home on the 2700 block of Sears Street as she looked at impressive piles of stationery and book bags. She and husband Norman Best have
li d at the h location l i for f 12 years, but b last l lived year proved so volatile, they felt compelled to be beacons for brighter times. “We’ve known a few shooting victims,” Ella Best said as her grandsons Rashaun and Saheed Yeiser exited her abode to return to their homes. The Bests often make trips with the boys to Marian Anderson Recreation Center, 744 S. 17th St., where the two play basketball. The site affords them safety, something their native section cannot always present. “Children run to shootings,” their grandmother said of the perverse form of sightseeing the neighborhood often offers. Tired of the common depiction of their area as a hotbed for tragedy, she and friend Pamela Thorpe last year started Don’t Shoot, whose name comes from a CeaseFire poster that reads “DON’T SHOOT. I want to grow up.” They held last year’s back to school celebration at Donald Finnegan Playground, 30th and Oakford streets as a culmination of a summer of weekly workshops on being safe and preserving their neighborhood’s hope. “We decided to have this year’s event
at my home,” Ella Best said of her space from which she also hosts the Saturday workshops. “We were raised with a different mentality,” Thorpe, a resident of the 2600 block of Oakford Street and one of Don’t Shoot’s two executive directors said of the organization’s eag eagerness to dissuade children from ever rely relying on violence to make lasting statemen statement statements.

$20,000 Work-In-Progress Grant to finish his piece, with an additional $25,000 coming through pledges through April. “The girls who play soccer for the Anderson Monarchs are deeply committed to creating opportunities for themselves by being active change makers,” Martin said on www.imdb.com’s entry on “The Anderson Monarchs.” “They see soccer as a way not only to better their lives but as a powerful way to influence their communities.”
“Everything was natural but I thought I would trip,” 12-year-old Courtney Harold, another fifth-year player, said of the shoots. A seventh-grader-to-be at St. Gabriel School, 2917 Dickinson St., the resident of the 2600 block of Sears Street kept her balance and is eager to see the final product. Stewart has equal anticipation. He said Martin last captured game footage in September and he planned to meet more families this summer. “It may be the documentary that never ends,” he said. The original plan called for release before the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup, which concluded July 17. Martin deferred to Stewart on questions about the film, so the coach said his friend is aiming to circulate his creation at fall film festivals. Published reports have Martin receiving interest from Hollywood and desiring full distribution next year. “We will use the film as a wedge for funding,” Stewart said of their need for an indoor facility for their suburban league games. He expects an uptick in interest and registrations for the Monarchs, who attended Saturday’s Philadelphia Independence playoff semifinal in Chester. “The piece is a positive look at dedicated athletes,” he said. “Their wills are impressive.” SPR Contact Staff Writer Joseph Myers at jmyers@ southphillyreview.com or ext. 124.

THE GIRLS DERIVE their title from contralto Marian Anderson and baseball Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson’s Negro league unit, the Kansas City Monarchs. Though they started at the South of South spot bearing the singer’s name, they have used Smith Playground for seven years. The land’s crowded occupancy means Stewart must often shorten the field for practices. He must also rid it of debris and issue warnings to avoid holes and mud, common nuisances by September, the month they begin to best teams in the Philadelphia Area Girls Soccer League. Friday’s rain confounded the shoddy field, making more apparent the severity of Martin’s task. “It’s a film about urban issues like equality and equity,” Stewart said right after the downpour disbanded the planned two-hour session 75 minutes early. In January ’10, he formed the Soccer Sisters United Inc., which, with no independent funding, depends on donations, grants and sponsorships. Players participate in
fundraisers each year to attempt to cover equipment, field maintenance, league, tournament, transportation and uniform expenses. They have often declined many invitations to compete, including two to West Africa, because of exhausted funds, according to their website. Fate permitted a trip to Orlando, Fla., that same month for the Kick It 3V3 Soccer World Championship. Martin accompanied them as they finished ninth and gathered more examples of their excellence. Owners of many championships, including two indoor crowns this year, they have become known as giant slayers who eagerly take on and defeat those whom their detractors feel should run the game, namely, teams in affluent areas. “We’re a very good team,” Stewart modestly said of their accolades. “The goal is to get these girls to the point where they could play in college.” India Barnes wants to exceed that purpose. The 9-year-old resident of the 1400 block of South 15th Street yearns to have a professional career. “I like the challenge of playing for this team,” the five-year veteran and fourthgrader-to-be at Holy Spirit School, 1845 Hartranft St., said. That challenge did not add any pressure to her involvement in the documentary, as she coolly coasted across the playing surfaces. “I am proud of my role on this team and was happy to represent South Philly in the movie,” she said.
SOUTh PHILLY REVIEW I August 25, 2011
Operating as the Anderson Monarchs, Stewart’s squad handed Martin’s charges gigantic losses, with the latter feeling pressure even before the opening whistle blows. “Every time we played them, my team would go, ‘Oh, no, not them!’” Martin revealed on www.kickstarter.com, a site that details his three-year project. Figuring he would film them if he could not beat them, the multiple award-winner met Stewart in fall ’08 at Germantown’s The DePaul Catholic School, where, after leaving the legal world, he has taught fourth grade for four years. “I was not hesitant,” Stewart said of having his former coaching companion chronicle his contenders, who comprise what Soccer Sisters United Inc.’s website believes to be the initial and lone competitive soccer club in the country that provides opportunities to inner city AfricanAmerican girls. With a reputation for crafting works that possess powerful inspections of poverty, social justice and youth, Martin began filming soon after receiving Stewart’s approval, capturing many of his 500 hours of material in ’09. The early shoots came just after the girls celebrated a nomination as Sports Illustrated Sportsman/Sports Team of the Year Award in ’08, an honor they earned through vanquishing opponents and opposition to their existence. Stewart, who formed the team in 1998 with eight girls at Marian Anderson Recreation Center, 744 S. 17th St., has heard harbingers of hate who claim his program exploits participants and introduces them to a game that members of their race should not touch lest they subject other athletes to savagery. “It’s amazing how some people will look to twist positives into negatives,” he said as his players followed his “Find a partner, and pass” instruction. The leader does not recruit, drawing his pupils from across the city and parts of Delaware County through word-of-mouth. Accustomed to having three teams, he will oversee two this year, with the mobile members’ ages ranging from 7 to 16. No matter the figures, Stewart motivates and easily gained respect from Martin. “We don’t look for publicity,” the coach said, adding that others look to sustain the novelty of his team’s racial identity more than he and the girls do. They do seek acceptance, though, and are receiving that and renown through Martin, whose work consists of game action and interviews with the kickers and their kin. In June ’10, the Sundance Documentary Grant Fund endowed him with a

News flash A local jewelry designer will try her hand as a dancer in this year’s Philadelphia Fringe Festival. By Jess Fuerst
he Philadelphia Fringe and Live Arts Festival has always been a platform for redefinition — whether it is a dance style, the concept of a performance venue or anything in between. This year, Sara Schuenemann is looking to take a negative event often gracing Philadelphia’s latest news headlines and spin it. “I used to work at Beau Monde [624 S. Sixth St.] and I’ve experienced two actual flash mobs. They are obviously very scary and intimidating,” Schuenemann, who recently moved out of her Queen Village apartment on the 700 block of South Fourth Street, said. “In part of this thinking about it and looking back on the decision to do [a flash dance mob], I like being a part of something that has the same kind of name, but definitely with a positive spin on what’s been happening the past two years.” Schuenemann and her two partners, Devin Rowlands and Elizabeth DiPasquale, conceived of their Fringe piece as an all-inclusive “dance mob” that will take place in Rittenhouse Square 2 p.m. Sept. 10.

Alex (Guy Pearce) watches out for his daughter, who discovers devious creatures that want to reek mayhem on their lives.
By R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer
ike something Stephen King might have inspired in the mid-1980s, “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark” is a genuinely spooky haunted house flick with a knowing, advantageous sense of humor, at once inducing shivers, chuckles and creepy-crawlies. Its pint-sized villains are ghastly subterranean gnomes who out-crazy The Smurfs and whose “come and play with us” incantations are menacingly absurd. It all works to surprisingly strong effect in this longdelayed Guillermo del Toro production, and what’s most appreciated is that the uglies maintain their frightfulness well after they’ve been revealed in all their prickly CG glory, a true rarity in creature horror. They live beneath a sprawling old gothic mansion (where else?), and are set loose when young Sally (Bailee Madison) moves in with her home-renovating father, Alex (Guy Pearce), and his interior-decorating girlfriend, Kim (Katie Holmes). Handed off to Dad by her birth mother, Sally is a misunderstood, over-medicated introvert, whose appointed issues make for easy scapegoats once she starts complaining about terroristic vermin. Flatly dismissive of his daughter, Alex is an underwritten deadbeat, as lazily villainized as he is later redeemed. Kim, meanwhile, is a somewhat inaccessible woman-child whose maternal ambitions soon trump her professional ones. The film ultimately suggests that being a decent parent requires active sacrifice, and the moral is delivered in a manner not unlike director Troy Nixey’s aesthetic: both deliberate and opaque. Nixey shows a knack for toying with light and shadow, and his camera has an unbounded, nookand-cranny curiosity a la David Fincher’s
“Panic Room,” but there’s an overall artlessness that’s disappointing given the filmmaker’s comic book background, and one can’t help but wish del Toro had just directed the movie himself. But a nimble flow of frequent chills is well-achieved nonetheless, and a pair of scenes involving a bathtub and a bedsheet are particularly tense. It surely helps that the girl we have to follow is 11-year-old Madison, a gripping standout in last year’s “Brothers.” Easily one of the best kid actors in the biz, she’s scary good.

Recommended Rental In a Better World R Now available The 2010 Academy Award-winner for Best Foreign Language Film, Susanne Bier’s “In a Better World” is a broadly preachy, yet compelling, Danish drama about the dangerous circumstances that unite two families and the ways in which humans respond to violence. Bier – who, incidentally, directed the original version of “Brothers” — inspires her international actors to give their very best, and she captures her locales with plainspoken beauty.

That is no small feat in a city where its public schools are always in the headlines for the wrong reasons, and its school superintendent a focal point for all the turmoil. Folks either wanted to canonize Ackerman or hold a fundraiser to buy out her contract. The folks who wanted Ackerman to be sent packing won the day. Ackerman is not the first superintendent in this city to fall into disfavor. Paul Vallas, left in 2007 before the end of his contract. Years ago, I used to think Mark Shedd was a curse word. But none stirred the ire of the public like Ackerman. Some of her supporters believed the reason was racial, and we know big city politics always has race as a key component. And while it is true that previous school superintendents have encountered budget shortfalls, none of them had a $629-million shortfall. There were other more serious charges against Ackerman. She gave the appearance of someone willing to bypass procurement regulations to reward her friends. A recent example was the Inquirer article that detailed Ackerman’s numerous dinners with Melonease Shaw, a political consultant and lobbyist, who wound up getting about $269,000 in district contracts. And while nothing illegal was proven, the appearance of impropriety in government contracting is itself wrong. It also showed the tin ear that Ackerman displayed when it came to her dealings with the public and the politicians on whom the City’s school district depends for support. Ackerman violated a cardinal rule of politics: You don’t make enemies of the folks who pay your bills. She seemingly went out of her way to turn off the mayor, City Council, the School Reform Commission and some important folks in Harrisburg. If you want to be an effective advocate for your schools, you must learn how to shmooze. At a time when budgets are being cut, you need important friends to minimize the impact on your own budget. Ackerman never learned that basic lesson. Her disdain for good PR even hurt her in dealing with the racial violence at South Philadelphia High School. Without investigating the crisis, she was all too ready to dismiss the systematic attacks upon Asian students as an isolated incident that bore equal blame. Some of Ackerman’s critics are not with-
out some hypocrisy of their own. There are folks in this city who only care about the public schools when there are budget problems. They don’t give a fig about the kids. It is all about keeping the cost down. Unless there’s a violent incident or a budget shortfall, the words “public school” are never spoken. The history in Philadelphia is the stronger advocate for the public schools. This City’s school problems are not different from those faced by other big cities and a good segment of the public just wants them to go away. Ackerman’s base salary of about $348,000 a year for five years plus additional perks was itself in controversy. Her critics seemed to blame Ackerman for the admittedly generous contract, but she didn’t hold a gun to anyone’s head to negotiate a $905,000 buyout. When the City gave Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey a $60,000 bump in salary to $225,000 a year, making him the highest paid city employee, hardly anyone batted an eyebrow. The City wanted to keep Ramsey from leaving to go to Chicago and they paid the going rate for a big city police commissioner. Ackerman’s big initiative, Imagine 2014 that includes her Promise Academies, has yielded uncertain results. It seems the idea of focusing on improving poor-performing schools is a no-brainer. People across the nation who know nothing about education emphasize test scores as the measurement for evaluating progress. I recommend they watch season four of “The Wire,” which graphically predicts what happens when higher test scores are your major focus. Obliging the bureaucrats, Ackerman presided over rising test scores while she was here. Stories about cheating are now emerging and being investigated. When pressure is applied to a school superintendent to improve test scores, it is passed on down the line, so teachers and students get the message. Test scores can be manipulated just like crime statistics to give the public what it wants to hear. Don’t blame Ackerman; blame the system. You look at Ackerman’s record and you wonder how an obviously talented educator with 40 years of experience at all levels of education working her way up the ladder, could not learn how to survive in Philadelphia. Ackerman is no naive rookie. She was the school superintendent in Washington and San Francisco before she was brought here. Her record is one of having improved academics at every stop. Her failure here is evident. Much of it was her own fault. Yet, there is the nagging thought we have reached the point in this city where no one can succeed at running our public schools. Ackerman is gone, but ultimately her failure, and yes, our failure, will have its biggest impact on our kids. SPR

22 SOUTH PHILLY REVIEW I AUGUST 25, 2011
t’s the heart of fishing season, but there is an easy solution for those who get a little queezy on the open seas. Instead of rocking back and fourth on a boat, push a shopping cart down to the supermarket’s fish aisle and reel in some haddock or flounder fillets. Toss in a few seasonings and you’re ready to bake Leslie McLaughlin’s Easy Fish Dinner. The resident of the 1300 block of Castle Avenue whips up this easy-to-prepare recipe in less than an hour. Besides living up to its billing, she hopes others find this dish as tasty as she does. SPR
Comment at www.southphillyreview.com/food-and-drink/recipes.

The Toque Stops Here Restaurant Review:
= Very Good
The Twisted Tail By Phyllis Stein-Novack R e s ta u r a n t R e v i e w e r
have always dreamed of going on a road trip to Memphis, home of the blues, barbecue and B.B. King. For me, nothing beats the blues. I thought The Twisted Tail, a new restaurant at Headhouse Square that once housed Kildare’s, featured barbecue, but the blues are king. The dining areas are painted a depressing deep battleship gray, although there is a section with a bit of orange. Edward and I had dinner at the bar and returned for Sunday brunch where we sat at very comfortable light, shiny wood tables and chairs. The bar is covered in a sticky material that was uncomfortable to the touch. The bartender not only mixed a fine Rob Roy for me and a martini for Edward, but made some recommendations from the menu. We began dinner with dueling ribs ($12), roasted duck spring rolls ($8) and shared a smoked tomato salad ($10). The ribs were a cute play on surf and turf. According to the menu, the pork ribs were St. Louis Wuxi Asian and the sea portion was pacu fish, which were both new to us. I have to say the dish was a bit imaginative and tasty. The dipping sauces were not too sweet or spicy. The duck spring rolls were made with confit and were the usual run-of-the-mill variety. They needed more flavor, but the grilled vegetables and red cabbage were a nice contrast. We could not detect a smoky flavor in the tomato salad although the vegetables were ripe and bursting with summer flaCoffee/Café/Sweets Caffe Chicco: 2532 S. Broad St., 215-334-3100, $

vor. Slightly spicy arugula, baby greens, fragrant cucumber and pickled heirloom peppers were a tasty fillip to the salad. The bartender helped me to select a glass of beer to go with dinner. She offered a sip of three before I decided on Left Hand Sawtooth ($5.50) from Colorado. It drank well with the daily special, which was pork belly made with Granny Smith apples ($19). I prefer real creamy buttery whipped potatoes but the bartender said “try them, you will love them.” First, my dinner arrived cold. The pork and greens were cold and the mashed potatoes were dreadful and cold. It was whisked away and I received a hot meal. Plain, lumpy mashed potatoes replaced the fancy ones but I still did not like them. The pork on the other hand, was nicely prepared. Edward’s veal osso bucco brûlée ($22) was a disaster. The entire dish, including the homemade veal ravioli, was cold. The ravioli served in a charred tomato broth tasted like they just had come from the fridge. The veal was gray and lukewarm. As our plates were whisked away, Edward noticed an entrée being returned to the kitchen as well. A gentleman, who may have been a manager, apologized and brought us complimentary flat bread ($9) to nosh on as our dinners were remade. It was nice — topped with tomatoes, grilled sausage, some creamy ricotta and oregano. Edward sipped a glass of Dotes du Rhone ($10) when he received his new dinner. It was just all right. The veal lacked flavor, but the ravioli were OK.
The southern-inspired Twisted Tail, which recently opened in Headhouse Square, serves up a variety of dishes for brunch. lunch and dinner. S ta f f P h o t o b y G r e g B e z a n i s
Sunday brunch began with the homemade breakfast basket of scones, cornbread and sticky buns ($5). They were heated in the oven and came out so downright delicious we could not get enough of them. Soft whipped butter added to the goodness of the scones that were studded with dried cranberries. The bloody marys ($8) lacked depth and richness in flavor. All I tasted was salt and some horseradish. Edward loves chocolate chip pancakes ($9). Several buttermilk flapjacks dusted with powdered sugar arrived cold. My three-cheese frittata ($8) was brown and rubbery on the bottom and also was cold. Our food was whisked away again. I asked for a frittata made with cheddar and
spinach. On the second try, Edward’s pancakes were not cold, but lukewarm. My frittata was a little hotter, but the cheddar imparted a nasty chalky aftertaste. At least the American blues kept us from falling too far into the dining blues. One tip of the toque to The Twisted Tail. SPR

Several famous French-born chefs have made their culinary impact on this side of the Atlantic. Pour a glass of champagne and enjoy the jour journey from the comforts of home.
Pépin the great By Phyllis yllis Stein-Novack Food Columnist
n a brutally cold evening in 2003, I lit the fireplace, brewed myself a cup of tea and settled into my favorite chair to begin “The Apprentice: My Life in the Kitchen” by Jacques Pépin. At the time, chef Anthony Bourdain wrote, “I’ve been waiting for this book my whole life.” So was I. Pépin’s story is the American dream. Born in 1935 in Bourg-en-Bresse, France — about 30 miles northeast of Lyon — the young Tati, which was his nickname, lived through World War II with his parents and two brothers. His mother, who ran a restaurant, sent him to the countryside during the summer where he worked on a farm. At age 13, he became a chef’s apprentice. His blue-and-white checkered trousers — part of the chef’s universal uniform — were his first pair of long pants. The cover of the book is a sepia-toned photograph of Pépin when he became an apprentice. It shows a gawky lad with a look of determination on his face. If this does not make you smile, nothing will. I recently reread Pépin’s delightful, funny and lovingly written autobiography. I
don’t want to give anything away should you read it as well, but anyone who appreciates fine food must read “The Apprentice.” I met Pépin on several occasions. He bought me a glass of champagne during a Book and the Cook dinner at Jake’s in Manayunk. We settled in and enjoyed dinner. Pépin is a soft-spoken, affable man and fun to be with. I have never taken a cooking class, but I have watched him teach on a few occasions. He is the master when it comes to teaching the art of French cuisine. His books “La Methode” and “La Technique” are used at cooking schools throughout America. Pépin has written 20-plus cookbooks, presented numerous cooking programs on PBS (my favorites were “Julia and Jacques: Cooking at Home” and the series in which he cooked with his grown daughter, Claudine), and is the winner of many honors including numerous James Beard and International Association of Cooking Professionals cookbook awards. Pépin was inducted into the James Beard Cookbook Hall of Fame in 1996. As the guest judge on Bravo TV’s top-
rated “Top Chef,” Pépin said his last meal would be a simple one: Squab and peas. His mother would prepare this dish on meaningful occasions such as Holy Communions. Here is the recipe for his mother’s Cheese Soufflé from his delightful “The Apprentice.”
Maman’s Cheese Soufﬂé Ingredients: 6 tablespoons of unsalted butter, plus more to butter a 6-cup gratin dish 6 tablespoons of all-purpose ﬂour 2 cups of whole milk 1/2 teaspoon of salt 1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper 5 extra-large eggs 2-1/2 cups (about 6 ounces) of grated Swiss cheese, preferably Gruyere 3 tablespoons of fresh chives, minced
Directions: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Butter a 6-cup gratin dish and set it aside. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Then add the flour and mix it well with a whisk. Cook for 10 seconds, add the milk in one stroke
and mix it in wit with a whisk. Keep stirring with the whisk until the mixture thickens and comes to a strong boil. This should take about two minutes. It should be thick and smooth. Remove from the heat and stir in the salt and pepper. Allow about 10 minutes for the white sauce to cool. Break the eggs into a bowl and beat well with a fork. Add the eggs, cheese and chives to the cooled sauce. Mix well to combine. Pour it into the buttered gratin dish and set aside until ready to cook. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until the soufflé is puffy and well-browned on top. Although it will stay inflated for quite a while, it is best served immediately. Serves four. Note from Phyllis: I would serve this soufflé on a meatless Monday. Just toss a big green salad and add any vegetables you have on hand to the bowl. A loaf of bread and a glass of wine would be perfect. Dessert is up to you, but I would shy away from anything heavy. Cheese soufflé is rich. Sorbet and cookies would be fine with me.

Joseph Myers talks
Harry’s bronzed back to life More than two years after his passing, the Phillies unveiled a permanent tribute to the legendary broadcaster.
Tim Johnson Review Intern
s the clouds parted for the first time in days, the sun beamed down on Ashburn Alley and its red-clad soldiers. It all seemed very fitting as after a two-day rain-induced delay, Aug. 16 was a time to remember one of the greatest figures in Philadelphia sports history: Former Phillies broadcaster Harry Kalas. More than two years after collapsing in the Washington National’s broadcast booth prior to a game at the age of 73, Kalas now lives in the form of a bronze statue unveiled behind section 141 in Citizens Bank Park, 1 Citizens Bank Way, last week. Hundreds of attendees swarmed a squaredoff section next to Harry the K’s restaurant that encased a who’s who of Philadelphia Phillies from past and present including former outfielder Garry Maddox and current shortstop Jimmy Rollins. “Being able to see [the statue] for the first time with the fans is great,” Kane Kalas, one of Kalas’ three sons, said at the event. “Just seeing this is so touching, to see what he meant to the city.” The tall, bronze statue is a work of art that brings to life that infectious grin that seemed to be glued to Kalas’ face at all hours of the day. The attire is more than appropriate: A jacket and loafers with one hand tightly grasped around a microphone with a World Series championship ring slipped onto his finger. All in attendance marveled at the majesty of the larger-than-life statue completed by sculptor Lawrence J. Nowlan, . “The detail and the precision is amazing,” Kane Kalas said. “Lawrence Nowlan did just a fantastic job.” But perhaps more important than the intricate detail is the placement. The statue sits in the middle of the concourse near Ashburn Alley — named after his former broadcast partner Richie Ashburn. And, from the beginning, this statue has been about people honoring the man who made their baseball experience exceptional. While the Phillies organization hosted the event, the real brain trust was a series of inspired and adoring fans.
Phillies public address announcer Dan Baker, from left, looked on as Phillies Cy Young-winner Steve Carlton and shortstop Jimmy Rollins revealed the new Harry Kalas statue that is situated behind section 141 at Citizens Bank Park. S ta f f P h o t o b y G r e g B e z a n i s
SHORTLY AFTER HIS passing Philadelphian Antonio Jose started a Facebook group petitioning for a statue to honor the announcer. Thousands of fans liked the page and it became clear that idea had a real chance of coming to fruition. As the page states, “If we have a statue of Rocky, why not Harry Kalas?” While the Facebook page generated interest and discussion, there was still a lot of work to be done, including lobbying and fundraising for the approximately $80,000 project. Suzanne Norris and Nowlan, the originators of Dear Harry Inc., teamed up to become the driving force behind making the statue a reality. “It doesn’t seem like that long ago that someone said, ‘Let’s just throw it out there and see what happens.’ Nothing ventured, nothing gained,” Norris said at the unveiling ceremonies. But Norris and Nowlan needed someone with the promotional and fiscal savvy to raise the necessary funds. Todd Palmer, who would become the nonprofit’s cam-
paign director, fit the bill quite nicely. “I think between Lawrence and Suzanne it was their original idea,” Palmer said. “He’s a sculptor and she’s a former teacher so they needed someone in the promotional field and that was me. Lawrence ended up coming to me and we put the rest together.” From that point, they created a website, www.harrykalasstatue.com, where fans and corporations alike could donate toward the cause. The idea began to gain steam and slowly the money started to accrue. However, large checks from prominent businesses did not make up the majority of donations. Once again, it was the fans who came out in full force. “It was 80 to 90 percent individual, personal donations. The majority of the donations were $5 to $10. ... A vast majority of it all came from fans of Harry Kalas who wanted to honor him.” Palmer said. Palmer said he was surprised that the statue did not come together sooner, but after two years of hard work the experi-
ence was worth the wait. “It was pretty surreal,” Palmer said. “I’ve never been in the center of 45,000 people before. It was cool to accomplish. “In the end to strategize all this and have all the Phillies love this and accept the statue, the only way to describe the overall feeling of the day is success and a job well-done.” After Rollins and Hall-of-Famer Steve Carlton pulled back the burgundy cover revealing the statue to the enormous crowd for the first time, Phillies Chairman Bill Giles shared a classic Harry anecdote. “After those late-night games, those of us who worked for the Phillies were rushing to get out the door and beat traffic. We would be leaving, but there was Harry at the fences signing anything that the people would put out. Harry never said ‘no’ [to the fans].” Giles said. Now, there is no fence separating Kalas and his fans. SPR Comment at sports/features.
