s neighbors walked by St. Pio Regional Catholic School, 1826 Pollock St., Saturday, they witnessed more than 30 Immaculata University freshmen hard at work. Donning matching blue T-shirts, several were pulling weeds near the fence of the school parking lot and cleaning up trash while others were installing an ornamental fence around the perimeter of the front lawn and garden. Even more were packed inside a three-stall bathroom at the side of the school hall, giving its walls and doors a fresh coat of paint.

These efforts were part of Macs Giving Back — an Immaculata student-orientation service project for its more than 300 incoming freshmen. “I chose to focus on Catholic schools in Philadelphia, particularly South Philadelphia, because archdiocesan Catholic schools have struggled in the past few years with mergers, closures and reorganization,” Melissa Mullin, the school’s learning strategy specialist in its Academic Success Center said. “I believe it’s important to proSee MACS GIVING BACK page 10 >>

Supporting the effort To the Editor: I was excited to read Nafis Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s letter (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Recruitment effort, Aug. 15). I run street cleanups with the Lower Moyamensing Civic Association (LoMo) on the second Saturday of every month. While I sometimes get discouraged at the lack of participation and concern on the part of the residents, I will not give up. Folks like you inspire me to keep going. I do believe that we can change the mindset of folks, educate our young people and clean up this city. People tell me I am wasting my time, but when our small group is done for the day, you can really see the difference and feel good about it. The few handshakes and hugs we get are well received. Litter affects everything from property value to crime rates to vandalism. You can find plenty of information to back this up.

I urge folks who are really serious about â&#x20AC;&#x153;taking back their cityâ&#x20AC;? to get involved with their local civic organizations, citizens groups â&#x20AC;&#x201D; whatever is available. You may be surprised at the good work that is already going on in your neighborhood that you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know about. You just may find a committee that suits you, and meet some new neighbors in the process. LoMo also runs a Trash Think Tank where residents from all of the civics meet to brainstorm innovative ways to concur the litter problem. Nafis, I think you would like these meetings. All are invited to participate. E-mail trashthinktank@ gmail.com to get on the mailing list for meeting times and places. LoMo boundaries are Oregon to Snyder, and Eighth to Broad streets. For more information, visit lomophilly.org or call 267544-9597.

To the Editor: I wrote an article last summer about the oppressive and stifling heat (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Melting the summer spirit,â&#x20AC;? Aug. 23, 2012). I thought it was worthy of a sequel, but like most sequels, they tend to be worse than the original. This summer was no exception. It was not as blazing hot as last year, but in my opinion, it was equally, if not more, disgusting. Torrential rainstorms with steam directly following seemed to replace the extreme flames of heat. It felt like a steamy version of a dreary winter. One minute the sun

was shining, the next it was black as night. The sky opened and turned into a hurricane-like storm. People were either running for the corner or just walking around soggy and wet. So, as we say goodbye to summer and its humidity, we could soon look forward to some crisp, cool, refreshing and hopefully better hair-day weather. And for all of you summer-loving-winter-hating individuals, please know that this is merely a parody about summer, nothing more.

olice had a warrant for Dennis Woods’ arrest for almost two months when they arrested him in North Wildwood, N.J. Friday. Woods, aka Boyce, 37, of the 2400 block of American Street, allegedly is responsible for 10 burglaries that occurred throughout the city, including unsuccessful attempts in Whitman and Packer Park. Police received a warrant for his arrest Dennis Woods in connection to the first incident in North Philly June 24, according to police. It wasn’t until after the two South Philly jobs Aug. 11 and 12 that he was suspected of the other nine. Philadelphia and North Wildwood police arrested Woods without incident at 12:15 p.m. Friday at the Aruba Motel and transported him to the town’s police department. He has been charged as a fugitive from justice in Pennsylvania, police said. As of Sunday, he was being held without bail at the Cape May County jail. Woods also had a warrant for a traffic offense in North Wildwood and a defiant trespassing warrant in Deptford Township. After being processed for the Jersey charges, he will be extradited back to Philadelphia for the burglary charges. Police did not release any further information on his arrest. During the 10 break-ins and attempted heists at pharmacies and bank ATMs, about six burglars worked in teams that allegedly included Woods and stole more than $100,000, drugs and merchandise, police said. The conspiracy began May 5 at Northeast Philly’s Delaire Pharmacy. It also included Northern Liberties’ Hyperion Bank June 22; Southwest Philly’s Rite Aid July 24; Northeast Philly’s PNC Bank July 29, Kmart Aug. 5 and Verree Pharmacy Aug. 9; Southwest and Northeast Philly’s Wells Fargo Bank Aug. 10; PNC Bank, 1544 Packer Ave. Aug. 11; and Wells Fargo Bank, 2710 S. Third St., Aug. 12. Charges in for this incident had not been filed as of press time, but Woods’ record includes 22 convictions for or guilty pleas to burglaries, thefts, aggravated assaults and conspiracies — including a rash of eight local theft-related arrests in late1997, according to court records.

Caught on a fence A Point Breeze man failed to flee fast enough, as police arrested him after spotting him stuck at the top of a fence about a block from his home. A 52-year-old woman got off of the bus and started walking at 5:30 a.m. Aug. 22. As she reached Dickinson Street, Recardo Jardine, 19, of the 2200 block of Gerritt Street, allegedly attempted to initiate a conversation with her, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. When she ignored him and continued to walk south, Jardine is believed to have followed her. Upon realizing he was trailing her, she sprinted to Tasker Street, but Jardine allegedly pursued her and said, “Give me your pocketbook or I will kill you.” The woman handed over her purse, but Jardine supposedly ordered her to empty her pockets as well, so she gave him her cell phone, Tolliver said. Jardine is believed to have fled on foot. Police officers arrived on location and surveyed the area, Tolliver said. They spotted Jardine, who later was identified as the perpetrator, stuck atop a fence in the rear alley on the 2300 block of Wilder Street. Police recovered and returned the woman’s property, Tolliver said. Jardine was charged with robbery, theft, receiving stolen property, terroristic threats, simple assault and recklessly endangering another person His bail was set at $50,000, which had not been posted by press time.

Road rage A bicyclist was beeped at and then knocked off of the road in Pennsport Sunday afternoon. A 25-year-old man was riding his bike southbound on the 1300 block of South Second Street when the driver of a black Dodge Neon honked at him at 3:10 p.m., Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The man was as far right as he could go. Eventually the car passed him, but stopped at Reed Street. The front passenger opened his door, smacking the bicyclist and knocking him down. The passenger stepped out of the car, but hopped back in when the victim threatened to call the cops. The car fled southbound on Second. The victim suffered scrapes to his left elbow and right hand, but did not seek medical treatment, Tolliver said.

Pizza, 1315 Bainbridge St., headed to a delivery location on the 700 block of South Mole Street at midnight Friday, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. As he walked up to the intended delivery address, William Welton, 39, allegedly pushed him to the ground, pointed a gun to his face and demanded money. The worker gave him $85 and the order, valued at about $40. Police received a lead upon interviewing neighbors who pointed officers to the offender’s home on the 1500 block of Catharine Street, Tolliver said. He was arrested, and police gathered evidence from his home. Welton was charged with aggravated assault, robbery, theft, receiving stolen property, simple assault, possession of an instrument of crime and recklessly endangering another person, according to court records. His bail was set at $250,000, which was not posted by press time. He pled guilty to eight counts of robbery from 1993 to ’94. In 2008, he pled guilty to another robbery, according to court records. He also was sentenced to probation for two retail thefts this year.

Invasion

Halted delivery

A Queen Village home invasion left a pair of residents with serious injuries and without a large sum of cash. Three men entered the residence in an unknown way, knocked on the door to a second-floor bedroom and entered armed, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The trio demanded money, striking a 57-year-old man in the back of his head with his gun, punching him and kicking him. A 33-year-old woman also was present. The burglars fled with a purse containing $500 — $200 of which was coins, Tolliver said. Both victims were transported to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Tolliver said. The man had facial injuries, including broken teeth and swollen eyes while the woman had a lump on the back of her head. The first offender was described as black age 22 to 23, 5-foot-7, 120 pounds and wearing a hoodie. The second man was described as black, age 18 to 19, 5-foot-7, thin and wearing a hoodie. The final perpetrator was described as black, heavyset and wearing a dark-colored mask over the lower part of his face. Each was armed with a gun.

A Point Breeze coffee shop was vandalized early Saturday. Two large windows, valued at $2,000, were shattered in the front of OCF Coffee House, 2001 Federal St. upon police arrival at 6 a.m., Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. An employee secured the business at 5 p.m. Friday. Nothing was taken. According to reports, Fingers have been pointed at Point Breeze Organizing Committee, which denied involvement on its Facebook page. The group had a march commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington in Point Breeze hours after the OCF incident. “As we said yesterday, we support a full and probing criminal investigation,” the group posted on its Facebook page. “The facts will show that we had nothing to do with it. We uphold the non-violent tradition of the Civil Rights Movement. Leaders of that movement, too, on many occasions, had to address provocateurs who benefited from portraying the Civil Rights struggle as violent.” The group has clashed with OCF owner Ori Feibush, criticizing his business OCF Realty, 2054 South St., and his developments in Point Breeze. The vandal was described as male, slim and wearing a gray hoodie, black ski mask, blue jeans, white socks, black sneakers, white and black gloves and a green shoulder bag. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-685-1635, text PPDTIP (773847) or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

Knit-picking A former Bella Vista couple hope their compression space suit and its derivatives can assist numerous fields. ■ By Joseph Myers R e v i e w S ta f f W r i t e r

A

s a precocious girl growing up on the 700 block of Montrose Street, Connie Bevivino-Huffa kept “can’t” out of her vocabulary and pondered the possibilities of her penchants for fabrics and science. With added enthusiasm and a likewise curious husband, she has continued to pursue her place in the creative universe and is aspiring to seal it through their involvement in the LAUNCH Systems Challenge 2013. The couple already have garnered distinction for their textile-armored compression space suit, adaptations of which they hope to market to numerous entities. “It is shaping up as our most daunting yet rewarding project,” the Bella Vista native said Tuesday from their Fabdesigns Inc. headquarters in Encino, Calif. “We’ve always sought to offer our best, so with a chance to further our beliefs in sustainability and safety, we’ve aimed high.” The graduate of St. Maria Goretti High School, now Ss. Neumann-Goretti High School, 1736 S. 10th St., and Bruce, her spouse of 25 years, emerged earlier this month as one of 20 finalists among hundreds of ambitious submitters. Having helmed their company since 1988, they have interacted with many high-profile corporations, including Nike, which teamed with NASA, the United States Agency for International Development and the Department of Defense in 2010 to form LAUNCH. The global initiative strives to promote that which can offer tangible solutions to urgent societal challenges, so the Golden State duo, with many individual patents, chose to tackle eliminating barriers to astronauts’ hurdles through space. “They can experience so much, so we felt designing something that would go toward safeguarding them against such woes as the loss of muscle and bone density, radiation and flexibility issues would be our top way to contribute to their work,” BevivinoHuffa, also an alumnus of The Philadelphia College of Textiles and Science, now Philadelphia University, where she also served as a Master’s program adjunct professor from 1996 to ’98, said. “We love being mentioned with so many talented people and hope to get word soon on whether we’ve made the top-10.”

To improve the chances for her and her British beau, whose résumé includes a teaching stint at California’s Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, she circulated word to her relatives and friends, who voted for their creation through Aug. 20. Not simply a popularity contest, the competition also calls on corporate figures to gauge which contributions could advance their fields. “Everything is a puzzle,” Bevivino-Huffa said of taking her spring discovery of the challenge and tinkering with ideas to devise the outfit. “It’s all about getting things to work so that what we produce is aesthetically pleasing, sure, but durable.” Finding their brainchild in fifth place last week, she hopes the support and the sponsoring agencies’ opinions will result in their invitation to September’s gathering at the Pasadena-situated Jet Propulsion Laboratory. With NASA’s potential mission to Mars as an inspiration for their ingenuity, Bevivino-Huffa realizes the ambitious girl who developed her love for piecing together possibilities as a high schooler has become an even more conscientious woman for whom the sky is certainly no limit, with her partner equally mindful of the world’s instability and need for agents of change. “Our goal in this project is to protect human beings from hazardous environments and improve not only their chances of survival, but the quality of life afterwards,” Huffa said. THOUGH THE TWO are obviously focusing on hearing positive news from the sponsors, they stand to achieve recognition even if they do not find themselves among the final list of esteemed originators. Confident in the quality of their stitching, they foresee being able to match descendants of the suit with military personnel, energy workers, health and safety employees, transportation hires and first responders.

Bruce Huffa and Connie BevivinoHuffa hope their handiwork can garner enough attention to help to support many workers’ efforts. Photos Provided by Connie Bevivino-Huffa

“The bombing in Boston helped to serve as inspiration for examining the civilian side of everything,” Bevivino-Huffa said of the April 15 Boston Marathon incident through which a pair of pressure cooker bombs killed three people and injured nearly 300 others. “The world is very dangerous at times, so whatever we can do to improve health and well-being, we’re on it.” She and Huffa have been seeking to give all of their clients comfort since they called South Philly home, with their then-new company serving the city’s sweater industry. As their talents and scopes have evolved, the two have continued to align themselves with similar thinkers, with the overall maintenance of the earth as an overt goal. “With the ability to produce things comes equally great responsibility to human health and the environment to manufacture with minimal impact on the environment,” Huffa, the inventor of Nike’s Flyknit shoe, said. “In our system, we use just the materials needed.” The California dreamers have gladly

watched their daughters Sarah and Jennifer take an interest in their work and have welcomed their input in projects. Having gone from working with local outfits to national and global conglomerates, they see their endeavors not only as labors of love to inspire their offspring but also as means to develop holistic, natural pieces that will not contribute to the world’s staggering pollution problems. They will continue to advocate for responsible engineering by corresponding and meeting with Apple, New Balance and The North Face Co., so aside from personal gain, they are striving, like Benjamin Franklin, whose eponymouslynamed institute Bevivino-Huffa flocked to as a girl to understand the wonders of the scientific world, to understand causality and the propelling force behind creativity. “It’s been wonderful to have had the chance to get our vision out there,” the Fabdesigns president said, confident other ideas soon will be blasting off. “We have added credibility and find ourselves humbled to be among those who are really conscious of what we can do to better our lives.” SPR Contact Staff Writer Joseph Myers at jmyers@ southphillyreview.com or ext. 124.

MACS GIVING BACK

mote the value of education that is rooted in faith, mission and identity.” Groups of 16 to 32 students were separated into First Year Experience networks and assigned to volunteer for four hours at one of 11 participating sites, which included four South Philly Catholic schools, where they worked alongside upper-class mentors and faculty members. St. Monica School, 1720 Ritner St.; St. Anthony of Padua Regional Catholic School, 913 Pierce St., and St. Thomas Aquinas Mission School, 1719 Morris St., were the three additional local sites. Citywide, the students also spruced up four West Philly, two North Philly and one Port Richmond site. Although this service project has been happening for about five years, with nursing homes, playgrounds, community centers and schools receiving attention in the past, this year, by far, was the biggest yet, with one of the largest incoming freshmen classes the University has had in years. When Mullin started back in June, she was eager to increase the efforts of this endeavor and focus more heavily on the education aspect. “Immaculata promotes service in the mission and identity of the school,” the resident of the 2500 block of South 12th Street who also grew up on that block said. Mullin reached out to a number of schools, including her own grade school — the former St. Richard School, which joined with Holy Spirit to become St. Pio in 2012 — throughout the summer and visited the final 11 sites in July. What she came back with after each stop was a wish list of sorts — what each facility needed for the upcoming year and this venture in particular. She then went out and purchased the necessary supplies for each school whether it was paint, brooms, fencing, cleaning supplies or trash bags, spending about $50 to $200 per school. St. Pio’s principal, Marianne Garnham, was thrilled for the help with “luxury” projects that included placing a small, black scalloped fence in front of the lawn, with the hopes of keeping out neighborhood dogs, and painting the rectory, school hall and bathrooms. “We have plenty here for them to do,” she said. “They are helping us with things that because of the time or money just don’t get done sometimes.” EACH FACILITY, DEPENDING on the need, requested different tasks. The students at St. Monica and St. Anthony of Padua cleaned bathrooms and classrooms, organized books, unpacked chairs and swept outside

History in the making

A

At St. Anthony de Padua (above), students volunteers for four hours, cleaning the building and unpacking needed items. Meanwhile, their peers put up a small fence around the lawn and painted at St. Pio (right). S ta f f p h o t o b y K at h r y n P o o l e

while volunteers at St. Thomas Aquinas participated in a large-scale paint job of each door frame on the building’s first and second floors in addition to an entire classroom. The students also focused on moving the library from a classroom to the former day care space, organizing books, setting up the after care and art rooms, relocating furniture and more. “They are incredibly helpful,” Principal MaryAnn Fynes, a former member of St. Gabriel Church, 2917 Dickinson St., said. The college students lent a strong and distinct skill set – motivation combined with being energetic, strong and mature individuals eager to help without needing a lot of direct supervision, Fynes said. “I just think young people in service like this are incredibly important to accomplish what needs to be accomplished in urban education,” she said. As the cost of education increases and the necessary resources decrease, a special project like this becomes invaluable and something the schools couldn’t possibly afford otherwise. “Who wouldn’t want all of this help?” St. Pio’s maintenance supervisor, Bruce Gilchrist, said. Noticing an apparent human resource

need, the students planned on returning even before the day was finished. “The mission is to stay connected to the school after we serve, to do a project with the school during the semester and stay involved,” Mullin said of future activities that may include book drives and fun activity days. “Our office, the Academic Success Center, would like to continue a relationship with each school during the school year and return to each school again next year to serve.” And, as freshmen, many of the “Macs” were not yet familiar with the peers they were working alongside. Freshman Ashley Kahn of West Chester stood on a chair in the newly renovated bathroom off to the side of St. Pio’s hall painting the sheetrock above the door frame. She was thrilled to assist in any way and reap the inherent rewards in return. “I’m having a lot of fun with this project,” she said. “I love volunteer work and giving back to a community and families.” SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/news/features.

historical marker unveiling will take place Friday afternoon in Queen Village. The South Point House at Front and South streets served as the starting point of the survey that led to the Mason-Dixon Line’s establishment, which ended a property dispute between William Penn and Lord Baltimore. Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon took the first scientific measurement of the degree of latitude and longitude in 1763 at the Queen Village spot. The marker will be unveiled at 2 p.m. on the 600 block of South Front Street.

Energy reduction

A

three-year-old home-energy reduction program will come to a close. EnergyWorks, which launched in 2010 as part of a one-time grant from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Better Buildings Neighborhood Program, will come to an end next month, but will accept applications through Friday. The program has provided $14 million for energy efficient home improvements and has achieved up to 40 percent in energy savings per upgraded home. “We have positively impacted the growth of the energy-efficiency services industry in the Greater Philadelphia region and permanently improved the comfort and efficiency of nearly 2,000 area homes,” Katherine Gajewski, the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability director, said in a statement.

hen contending with cancer, many people make despair an infinite element of their finite existence. Well aware of gloom’s sway among affected individuals and their loved ones, Dana Donofree favors front-loading positive thoughts and behaviors and is promoting such selections by overseeing AnaOno Intimates LLC, which soon will sell undergarments for courageous breast cancer survivors like herself. “Every woman has her journey, and some of those travels involve dealing with disease,” the 31-year-old designer said Monday from her home on the 1000 block of South Fairhill Street. “There definitely is a sad and dark side in fighting cancer, but there should also be happiness and light.” The Queen Village resident has grappled with the negative components for three years yet has used their counterparts to engender a role as an advocate, especially for younger women. With her products set to debut by year’s end, she is encouraging her peers to adopt fearless mentalities, even naming bras after female warriors. “We really are fighters and we’re capable of displaying so much strength,” the entrepreneur said of the battle to preserve dignity and stress hope. “We have to come to grips with our identity and realize there’s as much beauty in who we have become as in who we were before.” Donofree had been working on her line before Victoria’s Secret announced in May that it would not manufacture mastectomy bras. Seeking to set patients at ease, she intensified her enthusiasm not only as a creator but as a supporter of acquiring comfort and confidence. Once potential strangers, those blessings have found her in abundance and have aligned her with ladies who covet them, too, with 2010 serving as her

pivotal year. A highly health-conscious figure, Donofree received her cancer diagnosis the day before her 28th birthday. With her wedding planned for three months later, she inquired about tending to the matter immediately to prevent a postponement yet elected to side with science and work to prolong her vigor. “It struck me as a bit surreal,” she said of learning of her affliction, which she confronted by undergoing a bilateral mastectomy, reconstructive surgery and chemotherapy. “I’d had an exam only two months prior, but I believe everything happens for a reason. It’s understanding what that is or could be that motivates me.” DONOFREE DEVELOPED HER designing disposition as an Ohio youngster eager to access her mother’s and grandmother’s knowledge.

More presidents on tape

O

h goody! More Richard Nixon tapes have been released. I haven’t heard them yet, but I understand there are more exciting revelations in them. I’m just guessing, but here’s what I hear are some of the more interesting disclosures. As the Watergate Scandal deepened, Nixon only brushed his teeth once a day. ... There was some kind of connection between Henry Kissinger’s sex life and potato chips. ... Nixon believed a secret taping machine would be obsolete in the White House because there would no longer be secrets in America. Nixon was not necessarily forecasting the emergence of Edward Snowden, but reality TV. H.R. Haldeman can be heard joking, “Yeah, maybe they can title it “The Real Housewives of D.C.” ... In the midst of the scandal, Nixon correctly predicted a drop in circumcisions in the U.S. and continued dysfunction between the Philadelphia mayor and City Council. ... Nixon can be heard in the Oval Office often humming his secret favorite song “if you’re going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.” ... We find out John Dean delivered his famous line about “a cancer on the presidency” in what may be an early form of rap. ... Nixon wondered what his daughter saw in David Eisenhower. John Erlichman is heard to crack, “Give her a week and she’ll think of something.” ... Nixon was insecure about the size of his schlong and White House staff often had to tell him his was bigger than JFK’s. .. In one particularly memorable exchange with his aides, Nixon is heard scoffing at the idea that in the future a movie actor might become president. “Next thing you’ll be telling me,” Nixon said, “a black man will become president someday.” ... I often have wondered what it would be like if we could somehow overhear the conversations of other presidents. ... The George Washington tapes: “(expletive), if one more reporter asks me if I really chopped down a cherry tree, I’m going to bite him on the ass with my wooden teeth.” The Thomas Jefferson tapes: “Sally, I really do love you, and if you’re patient, I assure you I will divorce my wife and marry you, and my public career be damned.” This moment in history is the first presi-

dential lie concerning marital infidelity. The Andrew Jackson tapes: “What’s the big deal, they’re only redskins and someday someone will name a football franchise after them.” The Abraham Lincoln tapes: To his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln, “I had one of those visions, Mary, that someday Hollywood would make a movie about me being a vampire hunter.” Mary replied, “I have a feeling I’ll be portrayed as a crazy (expletive) and they might cast Lindsay Lohan as me.” The Teddy Roosevelt tapes: To his wife, “Stop bugging me. Yes, I do need another moose head nailed to the wall of the Oval Office.” The Warren Harding tapes: “You’ve sired so many bastard children that even the National Enquirer can’t keep up with you,” his wife said. “What do you have to say for yourself?” “At least I’ll be remembered for something besides The Teapot Dome scandal,” he said. The Calvin Coolidge tapes: (static) The Franklin Delano Roosevelt tapes: To Eleanor Roosevelt, “At least I’m not as careless as Harding. Now tell me again, why is it a good idea to pack the Supreme Court?” The Harry Truman tapes: “(expletive) I know my daughter’s face would stop a clock, and she can’t sing worth a (expletive), but she’s my daughter, (expletive).” The Dwight Eisnehower tapes: “Where did I leave my golf clubs? Has anyone seen my golf clubs? Mamie, if you would get those damn bangs out of your eyes, maybe you could help me look for my golf clubs!” The John F. Kennedy tapes: To J. Edgar Hoover, “I’ll bang who the hell I want, bad back or no bad back. And who the hell ever told you that you look good in a strapless dress?” The Lyndon Johnson Tapes: “Vietnam! Vietnam! Where the (expletive) is Vietnam, and somebody tell me why the (expletive) you smart guys ever thought I should send more troops in there?” (toilet flushing in the background) The Ronald Reagan tapes: To his wife during the Iran-Contra scandal after she had advised him to trade arms for hostages, “Do me a favor will you? Get yourself a (expletive) new astrologer.” The Bill Clinton tapes: To Hillary, ”Honey, I don’t even know anyone named Monica.” The George W. Bush tapes: After agreeing with Dick Cheney to invade Iraq, “Did I tell you about the time we won the cheerleading contest when I was at Yale?” The Barack Obama tapes: To Michelle, “I get Osama bin Laden and you still keep harping on me for leaving my socks on the floor!” SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/opinion/ cardella.

Kate (Olivia Wilde), from left, and Luke (Jake Johnson) both have significant others, but became especially close on the job at a Chicago brewery.

Buddy movie ■ By R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer

A

s many indie buffs know, writer-director Joe Swanberg is a pioneer of the mumblecore movement — that chatty, improv-heavy, millenialdefining style of low-budget filmmaking, which has permeated the work of the Duplass brothers and Lena Dunham. As the culture continues to grow beyond this irony-laced brand of free-flowing “realism,” so, too, has Swanberg, who offers his most restrained (and most mainstream) effort yet with “Drinking Buddies.” Centering around the unique world of a Chicago craft brewery, where comely Kate (Olivia Wilde) works with a crew of guys and acts like she’s one of them, the gently humanistic movie homes in on the wonders and toxicities of experimentation and complacency, and how both can prove dangerous if not addressed with a level head. Thus, it’s only natural that Kate, the booziest of the movie’s lead quartet (which also includes Luke, Kate’s co-worker played by Jake Johnson; Jill, Luke’s girlfriend played by Anna Kendrick; and Chris, Kate’s boyfriend played by Ron Livingston), is the most in need of clarity and balance. Things get tricky when the two couples head off for a secluded weekend together, and, in between sips of alcohol (a constant occurrence in the movie), begin flirting, not just with each other’s partners, but with ideas about how they want their futures to pan out. Swanberg has all the makings of a standard-issue infidelity drama here, but the lovingly realistic ways in which he explores the lines between love and friendship, and romance and commitment, put “Drinking Buddies” well above par. Though clearly improv-ing regularly, the film’s actors are

never put in a position that has them condescending to the audience, a flaw that’s grown all too common in films of this type. Everything has a natural rhythm, and Kendrick particularly shines in her best performance since “Up in the Air.” But top kudos definitely go to Wilde, who triumphantly plays against her Maxim cover-babe persona to give a rich and bona-fide turn as the film’s flawed leading lady. Thus, “Drinking Buddies” is a leap forward for both its director and its star.

Drinking Buddies

R Three reels out of four Opens tomorrow at the Ritz at the Bourse

Recommended Rental Stories We Tell

PG-13 Available Tuesday

Shifting from narrative film to documentary, actress-turned-director Sarah Polley offers a poignant and vivid patchwork portrait of her own family, tracing a history that involves her glamorous mother, her adoptive and paternal fathers and her various siblings in talking-head cameos. Even before aching revelations come to light, Polley proves what a delicate master of storytelling she herself is, miraculously managing to peel back the layers of her own past without a hint of exploitation. A must-see. SPR Comment and see the trailers for this week’s movies at southphillyreview.com/arts-and-entertainment/movies.

here are meatballs and then there are meatballs loaded with flavors and seasonings. Kathleen Valle prefers going with option B as her three-meat mixture is simply the foundation to her Spicy Meatballs. The resident of the 2600 block of Dudley Street doesn’t hold back when adding some spice as slices of pepperoni provide that tongue-on-fire flavoring. Some may prefer coating this round-and-meaty offering in their sauce of choice, but it’s not required. SPR

DIRECTIONS:

3 pounds of ground pork, beef and veal 8 ounces of pepperoni, sliced 3/4 cup of Pecorino-Romano cheese 3 eggs 3/4 cup of breadcrumbs 1/4 cup of garlic, minced 12 mozzarella balls or cubes

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Put pepperoni in blender and pulse until smooth. Add all of the remaining ingredients except the mozzarella balls, and mix well. Make 12 patties then place one piece of the mozzarella in the center and roll into a ball. Seal tightly so the cheese does not ooze out. Place the meatballs on a cookie sheet and bake until browned.

batter was beautifully seasoned, it slid off the okra as we munched. It still tasted good. The fried shrimp po’boy ($14) comes with shredded lettuce, tomatoes and classic remoulade sauce. The ingredients were piled into a soft French roll and served with homemade potato chips. I wondered if Martin used wild Gulf shrimp because their slightly sweet flavor made my taste buds sour. They were crisp outside, and still toothsome inside. The Southern theme continues at Strangelove’s if you (and you must) order dessert. Lemon ice box pie ($7) was light, cool and refreshing. It is baked in a chocolate cookie crust, topped with whipped cream and a sprinkling of fresh Jersey blueberries. Service was excellent throughout din= Very Good

hile surfing the Internet last week, I happened upon a gastropub called Strangelove’s. I often wonder how a restaurant gets christened and I immediately did some research. The kitchen is in the capable hands of executive chef Paul Martin, a native of Louisiana whose tasty dishes I enjoyed when he was at the helm at Catahoula’s. Since New Orleans fare is on the menu, I wanted to take a culinary trip down south. I confess I could not get the image of Peter Sellers out of my mind when Edward and I slid onto comfortable bar stools and discussed the moderately-priced menu. The bi-level restaurant is located on South 11th Street where a few places came and went. Simple wood tables, soft lighting and a television for Phillies viewing emit a comfortable atmosphere. Since bourbon is king in the American South, I decided to try my first Maker’s Mark Manhattan ($9). It imparted a smoky flavor and aroma that I liked. Edward sipped a Bluecoat martini ($10), and our delightful dinner began. Conch fritters ($4) took me back to a warm winter day in Key West when I sampled them for the first time. Conch are found in the warm waters of the Atlantic from Florida down to the Bahamas. Martin chops them, fashions them into the size of a golf ball and fries them to a golden brown. A delicious remoulade sauce was a fine foil for the mild conch flavor. Pimento cheese ($7) is a clear example of fine Southern hospitality. It is served throughout the South as a prelude to dinner. It is made with orange cheddar

cheese, so don’t let the color fool you. It is not Velveeta. Softened cream cheese, a bit of hot sauce and the necessary dash of Lea & Perrins makes this spread uncommonly delicious. It is served with saltine crackers below the Mason-Dixon Line but Martin offers homemade pickled vegetables and warm toasty French bread. The pimento cheese is packed into a Mason jar and the lid serves as the vessel for fine pickled carrots, okra, tiny beets and green beans. With this in life, nothing is bad. The duck gumbo ($9) was so expertly made, I wanted to make my way into Martin’s kitchen and ask if I could watch him prepare it. I received a big, white bowl filled with a roux, which looked like melted, dark chocolate. Martin does not use tomatoes and okra in his gumbo. Shreds of juicy tender duck, packed with flavor; married with spicy Andouille sausage; the holy trinity of peppers, celery and onion; and finely-sliced scallions made this one of the most satisfying restaurant moments in recent memory. I also liked that Martin hit the right note with the hot and spicy flavors. This gumbo had depth and character. Gazpacho ($6) may appear out of sync at Strangelove’s, but Martin has included vegetarian and vegan options on his menu. The tomatoes were pureed into a rich sauce and thinned with a bit of stock. Some grated cucumbers floated on top, adding a little crunch. Strangelove’s is home to some of the finest craft beers offered in the city. Edward and I shared a pint of Duet ($5) that is brewed just for the restaurant. Fried okra ($5) can be tricky. Although the

Spectrum Grill’s Pan-Seared Chilean Sea Bass

O

n any given night, one of Philly’s beloved teams will have an off-night. But when you are the head

chef at three of the restaurants local sports fans frequent, serving a bad meal is not an option. Levittown resident Chris Summers has been acing the assignment since Xfinity Live!, 1100 Pattison Ave., opened in March 2012. He handles the menus for the Spectrum Grill, NBC Sports Arena and PBR Bar and Grill. Staying calm is the key. “I’ve been doing this for so many years that I am accustomed to how it is,” Summers, who has an associates degree from the Art Institute of Philadelphia, said. Like Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg, he alters his lineup of dishes on a seasonal basis. With fall fast approaching, Summers is getting ready to add a PanSeared Chilean Sea Bass to the Spectrum Grill, which is a highend sports bar, menu. “I wanted to showcase something that is coming out in the fall,” he said. “Sweet potatoes and Chilean sea bass go very well together.”

Chef Chris Summers

Spectrum Grill at Xfinity Live! Owners: Comcast-Spectacor and the Cordish Co. Opened March 2012 1100 Pattison Ave. xfinitylive.com

INGREDIENTS: 8-ounce Chilean sea bass filet 3 heads of baby bok choy 3/4 pound of sweet potatoes, peeled and rough chopped (save 1/4 pound for crispy potatoes) 6 cloves of garlic 4 cups of water 1 ounce of cream 1/2 teaspoon of curry powder Salt and pepper, to taste 1 tablespoon of butter Enough vegetable oil to coat the bottom of a pot

PUREE DIRECTIONS: In a pot, combine 1/2 pound of the sweet potatoes with the garlic and water. Cook until the potatoes are tender. Remove the potatoes and garlic, saving the liquid, and add to a blender. Start to puree and slowly add in the liquid until it becomes a smooth puree. Finish

with the cream, curry powder, salt and pepper. Set aside.

SEA

BASS

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Season the sea bass with the salt and pepper, and pan sear until the it is golden brown on one side. Flip it over and place the it in the oven and cook for about eight minutes, depending on the thickness. While it ss is cooking, sauté the baby bok choy with the salt, pepper, chopped garlic and butter.

Take the remanding 1/4 pound of sweet potatoes and thinly slice them lengthwise. Cut them into thin-as-possible strips. Over medium-high heat, fry them in a pot with the oil for two minutes. Remove them from the pot and place on a towel, adding the salt and pepper. Using a spoon, spread the puree on a plate, and add the bok choy followed by the sea bass. Garnish with the crispy sweet potatoes. SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/ food-and-drink/features.

Deborah Ann Deery, Artist/Educator Age 49, Lived in Philadelphia PA Passed away August 19, 2013 (8:09pm) after a courageous eight year battle with pancreatic cancer. Born August 28, 1963 in Philadelphia PA to parents Charles Lester Deery & Teresa DiCicco Deery. Deborah Deery, artist and art educator, had the unique gift of enriching the life of each person she met. Under Deborah’s guidance, students of all ages enjoyed her skill of teaching art and, more importantly, learned how to live a life of mutual respect and kindness. From a young age, Deborah was always a spunky, energetic person who loved being outdoors. Her love of animals and nature and art and music and education would always shape her life. She enjoyed an active lifestyle that included traveling, hiking, cycling, dining, and especially running. In 1998 she married Pete MacGregor, a musician and technical professional. Deb was a very skilled and imaginative artist, leaving behind a number of exceptional pieces. With no exaggeration, she has influenced countless lives as an educator, mentor, friend and by training the next generation of educators.

Survived by: Husband Pete MacGregor (cats Whitey, Daffodil & Sedona). Brothers Charles Richard Deery, Michael Ronald Deery and James Paul Deery. Uncle Ronald Deery and Aunt Dorothy Deery. Cousins Katherine DeCicco-Tigert, Rickey DeCicco, James DeCicco, Brian DeCicco, Dominic Buccieri, Matthew Buccieri, Christopher Buccieri, Allison Spallone and Megan Reed. Mother-in-law Antonia Signorello Mangold and Father-in-law James J. Mangold III. Sisters-in-law Lorraine Mangold Alexander, Janine Kelly MacGregor, Erica Rosser and Karen Peterson. Brothers-in-law Jack Stewart MacGregor Jr., Frank Signorello MacGregor, James J. Mangold IV and Paul Demetrius Alexander. Nieces Janet Kelleen MacGregor and Ashley Runyon. Nephews Frank Alexander MacGregor, Logan James Mangold and Ilias Peter Alexander. Cousins Kristine and Brian Greenbaum (Jaclyn and Brett Parker, Michael Greenbaum), Frank and Catherine Signorello (Harry and Talia), Karen and Mark Conlon (Devon and John). Uncle Vincent and Aunt Jutta Signorello. Aunt Gloria Signorello Iannone (Robert, Louis, Bill and Lucy Sharpe). Beloved Extended Family: Lynne and William Horoschak (Evan). Sharon Morgenstern Siliquini (Ralph, Savannah and Luca), Debra and Nick Johnson (Ryan), Bernie and Helen Morgenstern. Jean Drumm and Bart Nieuwenhuijsen (Luke and Jude). Carissa Marinelli. Deborah also knew and loved an unbelievable number of people in Philadelphia and the art & education community, whom regrettably cannot be listed here...her life force is just too big to contain! Deborah wished for no viewing nor public services for her passing. Her husband will host a 24-hour open-house to celebrate her life. Hopefully this will allow family, friends, neighbors, colleagues and students to pay their respects for a little while, as their schedules permit. Open-house will be held on Deb’s birthday, Wednesday August 28, 2013, beginning at 12:00am (midnight) and continuing through 11:59pm. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Deborah Deery Art Education Award. The award will be for the Outstanding Student in Art Education and those qualifications will carry Deborah’s legacy far into the future. Make checks payable to Moore College of Art & Design, and put in the memo field a note that it is in memory of Deborah Deery. Donations should be sent to the attention of Linda Porch in Development (20th Street and the Parkway, Phila. PA 19103). - “It is an understatement to say that she occupies a special place in our hearts and that Deborah Deery, the teacher, colleague, artist and friend will truly be missed.” Cecelia Fitzgibbon, President, Moore College of Art & Design Moore College of Art & Design also plans to host a public event, to honor Deborah for her commitment and dedication to the college and to the greater community. To be held Friday September 27, 2013, from 11:30am - 12:30pm.

Career: Deborah was an experienced art educator. She taught at Fitzsimmons M.S., Stella Maris and Mt. Carmel schools, and was a successful grant writer for collaborations with cultural organizations such as the Philadelphia Museum of Art and Clay Studio. She subsequently became the Director of Academic Programs for Philadelphia Futures, an experience that was very influential in inspiring her to work with youth in the juvenile justice system. Deborah began working at Moore as an Admissions Counselor in 1996, shortly thereafter becoming the Assistant and then Associate Director of Admissions. In January 1998, she became the Director of Admissions serving in this capacity until March 2001. During this time she also taught Portfolio Prep in the YAW workshop. From September 2002 until September 2003 she was the Educational Outreach Coordinator in YAW for the Smart Futures program. In May 2000, Deborah earned an Art Education, Teacher Certificate through Moore’s Post-baccalaureate program and subsequently went on to achieve her MA in Art Education with an Emphasis in Special Needs from Moore in August 2012. In spring 2004, Deb began teaching as an adjunct faculty in the BFA Art Education program. In 2009 she was appointed to a full-time Visiting Scholar position and this past May, Deb was appointed as an Assistant Professor. Deb’s service to the College is legendary. She participated in Learning Through Photography with the Galleries at Moore and was actively engaged in recruitment efforts to bring post-baccalaureate Arts Education and graduate Arts Education students to the College. She also volunteered in youth art programs in the community working with incarcerated youth and with schools and non-profits arts organizations. Deborah was currently working on a series of scenes she had sketched from along the C bus route to accompany her short stories about the people who take the bus. She was in contact with Penguin about this book project.

It will be one year on September 1st that you left us. It is not easy to live life sometimes and face the world with a smile when your crying inside. But you left us with beautiful memories and that beautiful smile that hopefully we can go on. You’re in a better place and your suffering is over.

August 27, 1968 -- March 16, 2010 Happy Birthday! Miss you dearly and you will be forever in our hearts. Your family and friends continue to share those precious memories of you. Darrell, you may be gone but you are not forgotten. Sadly missed by Mom, Knuckles, Dee, Basim, Darrell, Badriyyah, Hassan, Your baby girl Lailah, Ray and Pete, Tammy and Marcie, Family & Friends.

Dearest Alyssa Renee, Your first -”Angelversary” is here.

Daddy and I still can’t believe it, still don’t want to believe it. Just seems like yesterday to us. Your nineteen years on earth came and went in the blink of an eye. Our baby girl won’t be calling us or walking through the front door ever again. Your presence is still felt. Your signs are ever present. Your brother and sisters will carry your memory into the future. Your life will never be forgotten. This past year we walked in your name, donated scholarships and statutes in your honor. It doesn’t erase any of our sadness or grief. People say it will get easier but they have no idea. They don’t know the pain in our heart, the loss, the void, the ache, the dark places that a parent is taken too when their child passes from this world. We are forever changed, forever different people. As parents, we thought we were here to show you “the way” that life should be lived. But God had a different plan, you became the teacher. And we are amazed at the life lessons you taught .... to not take tomorrow for granted, to live now, to cherish family and friends and to love unconditionally. We will forever be grateful for the beautiful gift of you, Alyssa Renee.

With Love, until we meet again, Mommy and Daddy. Sissy we love and miss you! Love, Ashley, Daniel and Amber

to catch the pigskin stars, including star running back LeSean McCoy, who drew the loudest introductory cheers. “Today is a pep rally, really, to set them up for a good year with people who have their welfare in mind all the time,” Quarles said as quarterback Michael Vick and the other signal callers engaged in drills. “They have to be resilient, quite often more so than adults, so we’re happy to be able to give them this treat as they get ready to tackle their challenges.” ALONG WITH THE sporting elements, enrollees gather for job readiness workshops, learn how to prepare for the possible rigors of college while mastering their secondary studies and visit places of higher education as extra motivation. Monday’s outing featured many new members, whom Quarles will supply with the typical love and atten-

tion their contemporaries have required. “Some rely on shelters but most live with someone,” he said of their situations, which often include couch circling, the dependency on a revolving list of friends and relatives to provide shelter. “Even when with someone close to them, all is not necessarily well.” Rose joined the network, which locates and supports Philadelphia teenagers who have experienced hardships, three years ago while a George Washington High School attendee. Learning of it through an aunt with whom she resides in Germantown, she saw making connections as a great way to put into perspective her troubled home life and to intensify her educational pursuits. “I wanted more investment in my future,” Rose, who became an intern for the four-year-old entity in November, said of engrossing herself in applications, from which she gained admission into Temple University. “That’s really what the whole network is about, helping people to believe in themselves and letting them see that even though they’ve had to grow up faster, it’s still OK to ask for help.” The sophomore psychology major is

aspiring to give youths the same sort of hope that in three years has situated her among the network’s tireless touters. Her overseer likewise sees her as a beacon for the current participants, many of whom have had their circumstances rob them of opportunities to ponder careers. “Meko has been a great help to us,” Quarles said as All-Pro outside linebacker Trent Cole and his defensive mates went over formations. “She’s come out of the program as a strong voice for our children, and I’m grateful for her willingness to motivate.” As their hosts, who will open the regular season Sept. 9 at FedExField against the Robert Griffin III-led Washington Redskins, finished their reps, the youths eagerly awaited chances to obtain their autographs. Slated to begin school the same day the Birds head South, they hope to root for them again in the Super Bowl. “There are so many possibilities for them and us,” Rose, already hitting the books on North Broad Street, said. “Today’s been fun.” SPR Contact Staff Writer Joseph Myers at jmyers@ southphillyreview.com or ext. 124.

s the Philadelphia Eagles took to the trimmed grass of Lincoln Financial Field, 1020 Pattison Ave., late Monday morning, Meko Rose encouraged her peers teenagers to offer the athletes energetic high-ves. Members of The Teen Evolution Experience Network, the youngsters ventured to the stadium to enjoy their heroes’ fifth and final preseason public practice and to gain inspiration for chasing their dreams, which for all of them will involve overcoming homelessness. “It’s great to see the Eagles, but it’s even better to have another opportunity to bond,” Rose said as she glimpsed the action and the youths’ reactions. “Seeing them is an experience we’ve never had, and many of us have to worry about food problems, so it’s been a plus not to have that concern for at least a day.” The 19-year-old and the others came as guests of the team’s Youth Partnership, which is also responsible for endeavors such as the Play 60 Challenge, which rewarded learners from Edwin M. Stanton, 1700 Christian St., and George W. Nebinger, 601 Carpenter St., schools with a May 30 trip to the field for their fitness commitment. Under the supervision of Al B. Quarles, Monday’s group diligently observed the professionals as they prepared for tonight’s final exhibition at the New York Jets and shared laughs to counter what often comprises the individuals’ days. “Homelessness is an enormous barrier,” the School District administrator and regional coordinator for homeless and emergency services said. “The network strives to remove blockades, especially educational ones, to give participants the best opportunities to move on.” Quarles noted his employer last school year assisted 4,800 homeless pupils, with kindergarteners through fifth graders making up the majority. Because the number of compromised students has ranged between 4,500 and 5,000 over the last five years, he and his colleagues have needed to court numerous allies in their fight to preserve thoughts of fruitful futures for their charges. Having aligned with the Camden Riversharks for their previous two pre-September morale boosters, the network registrants enjoyed the occasion
