Suddenly silenced A former Prep Charter on-court dynamo died last week days after collapsing while playing basketball at a rec center. By Joseph Myers R e v i e w S ta f f W r i t e r

16-year-old’s heart should be a sturdy engine. What “should be,” however, often fails to materialize. The family of Akhir Frazier received a reminder of life’s unfairness last Wednesday when they said goodbye to the former basketball star four days after he collapsed at a North Philadelphia recreation center. Though autopsy results are pending, his family knows through doctors a thickening of Akhir’s heart contributed to his Aug. 21 collapse at the Hank Gathers Recreation Center in the city’s Strawberry Mansion section. Following four days of monitoring at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, See FRAZIER page 12

ith pencils in hand, Joni Woods perused Staples for folders and poster boards. With many heading back to school Sept. 7, the English teacher was wrapping up her back-toschool shopping Monday for her students at Olney High School. “Just generic things, so the kids will have

them,” the Bella Vista resident said. “I’ll be reimbursed for [it], up to $100, which is a drop in the bucket for what we spend.” Deanna Hatter agreed, adding the supply stipend is added to teachers’ first paycheck. Hatter teaches fifth through eighth grades at Julia Deburgos Elementary School and has spent about $10,000 of her own money on her students in her seven years at the North Philly school, including the last year’s purchase of a Dell computer.

“What I buy is not for a ‘normal’ class,” Hatter, who teaches students with disabilities, said of the items that include clothes, diapers and food. At the office products store at 1300 S. Columbus Blvd., she was getting the classroom necessities, such as pens and printer ink, she has not found elsewhere. “I pick out deals. I go to flea markets and see what I can get,” she said, noting See BACK TO SCHOOL page 9

Word on the Street

Letters

With this week being the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, do you think enough effort has been put into rebuilding the impacted areas?

We are not amused

“Not at all. People are still living in trailers. Politics need to be left out [of] the rebuilding process.” Andrea Wilson, Broad and Jackson streets

“No. Bottom line is government needs to step up its efforts.” Jeana Parker, Broad and Jackson streets

To the Editor: On the 11 p.m. news, they showed a Shore town amusement park. One of the amusements was a game where they had life-size wooden figures of known people, like bin Laden and Obama. To win you had to throw a ball through a round hole in the wooden figures. People protested because Obama was disrespected. I don’t get it. For years people like Jay Leno and David Letterman bashed Bush, yet no protest. Wake up America. Carlo Gonnella South Philadelphia

“I don’t think there can ever be enough effort in rebuilding a city that was once great.” Dan Trotter, 16th and Bigler streets

“It’s pretty obvious if you’ve been down there. It’s almost a slap in the face to leave the people in the state that they are in down there.” Dave Broughton, 13th and Jackson streets Interviews and photos by Greg Bezanis

Picking up what was DROP-ped To the Editor: Back in 1999, then-Mayor “Fast Eddie” Rendell started the DROP program with Michael Nutter and John Street as councilmen. Then in 2004, Mayor “His Way” Street tried to do away with the DROP program and was shot down by Council. Then he opted to sign up for the same program he wanted to do away with. Now in ’10, Mayor Nutter wants to do away with it. So far, two councilpeople have DROP-ped and came back with a big payday. Now, six more council members have signed up. First District Councilman Frank DiCicco said if he runs again, he will donate his lump sum payment back to the City. I’m sure between now and the time he receives it, he’ll find some City ordinance that disallows him from doing so. Former Managing Director Camille Barnett worked for two years and, through a loophole, could buy into the pension plan and collect for a lifetime. How many others have done this without being detected? Remember, next year a lot of Council will be up for re-election. Vote them out, or go along with their program. They would rather layoff police and close firehouses than trim the fat from those offices which could afford to lose a few. Now we have to wait until September when Council comes back from its long summer vacation to deal with

this issue. It’s time for the citizens of Philadelphia to speak up.

Mario Marchetti South Philadelphia

Think before you speak To the Editor: In response to Chris Doyle (“Back to the books,” Aug. 12), have you ever considered perhaps Mayor Dana Redd’s mispronunciation of “library” is actually an accent or regional/cultural way of speaking, not a sign of illiteracy or lack of intellect? Perhaps the next time you utter the phrase “I’m gonna” instead of “I’m going to” or any other of myriad examples of spoken language not matching true, proper English, you will realize your own hypocrisy. I agree Camden should not close libraries, but please think twice next time before attacking the intelligence of a public official with a tough, thankless job. Catherine Connelly South Philadelphia

Hot wheels To the Editor: After reading Destinie Campanella’s letter (“Questioning the love,” Aug. 5) regarding her 13-year-old cousin’s plight with his bike being stolen and the injuries he sustained, I could sympathize with her and regret the fact we are sometimes helpless or hopeless. A few days before reading her letter, I was driving down 20th Street not far from where the incident she described took place. I saw a group of about eight males between the ages of 10 and 15 riding their bikes north on 20th. At least three of them were also wheeling a second bike alongside them with no rider onboard. Now I’m a reasonable guy, but come on! Could all three have been coming from a bicycle repair shop? A used bicycle shop? Toys “R” Us? Did three of their friends suddenly decide to walk home rather than ride their bikes and they were just doing their friends a favor? In situations like this, wouldn’t it be nice if our police officers could

just detain them for a little while and ask where did the extra bikes come from? I know our officers have a much greater responsibility to the city, but we, as residents, can’t detain them and ask the question. The other question I have is what happens when these kids go home and have two bikes instead of one? Do the parents believe it was “Free Bike Day” somewhere? Anthony Santini South Philadelphia

Tasteless TV To the Editor: Due to the startup of yet another heat wave, I stayed in my bedroom next to the air conditioner and clicked on a few TV channels, some of which I had never watched before. I came up on the all-too-familiar face of Cincinnati Bengals’ wide receiver Terrell Owens, who was apparently hosting his own weekly TV melodrama which showed off his fancy digs, cars and female assistants — all for His Eminence, the cockier-than-thou T.O. After an hour of the minute-byminute goings-on, the next program opened with yet another cocky football player, Chad Ochocinco, also of the Bengals, who was interviewing a bevy of females in “Bachelor”-style fashion. A few of the women were shamelessly cozying up to him in hopes of getting a date or receiving a few expensive gifts for which he is apparently famous for handing out at random, such as the ridiculously extravagant ring he bestowed on “Dancing with the Stars” Cheryl Burke for making him look good on the dance floor. God save us from TV shows as boring and tasteless as the ones I watched. Arlene M. Conroy South Philadelphia Comment on these letters or topics at www.southphillyreview.com/opinion/letters.

CASH FOR GOLD I sat in on the session titled “Communicating with the Angels,â€? since the title piqued my curiosity. On numerous occasions, I’ve listened to Lori discuss her views on the afterlife and the array of otherworldly helpers that protect us daily, including deceased relatives. Admittedly, I’m skeptical about some of the things she tells me, while other times I think she’s spot-on ‌ After a relaxing meditation session that involved visualizing ourselves in peaceful settings and communicating with the beings that happen to pop in our head, Lori asked us to share with the group what we saw ‌ I said a prayer before telling the group I saw my deceased grandma in a blue dress who gave me a message of love. Honestly, I’m not sure if what I saw was actually my grandma or my mind playing tricks on me, but I did feel more at peace in the end ‌ SPR To read other Review blogs, visit www. southphillyreview.com/arts-and-entertainment.

he government should order everyone to step outside of their comfort zone at least once a month. You’ll never know what surprises you’ll discover. Call it a phobia, but I hate public speaking. Hate it. Never liked it, probably never will. I’m more effective at stating my case via the written word. However, I’m aware speaking publicly is a necessary skill and a lesson I need to learn — like it or not. The lesson continued a few weeks ago when I decided to attend a workshop held by my zany friend Lori, a talented clairvoyant with a massive heart who teaches classes on communicating with your “spirit guide� and honing one’s psychic abilities.

Stunning

hat was behind the gunfire that left a man paralyzed from the neck down on the 1400 block of South 20th Street is still unknown. At about 3:45 p.m. Aug. 31, 17th District police responded to a report of a shooting, where they found the 56-yearold lying on the ground with a bullet to the back of his neck, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. Medics transported the man to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in critical condition. There, he went into surgery and was deemed paralyzed. Ballistics evidence was recovered at the scene, Tolliver said. The shooter, who was last seen going south on 20th, was described as a black male, about 5-foot-8, 200 to 220 pounds, with a light complexion and goatee and wearing a black baseball cap backwards, a white T-shirt and black jeans. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013.

The stun gun used in the robbery of a 24-year-old near the Italian Market Monday evening was recovered, but the duo responsible are still at-large. Two men walked up to their victim from behind and pushed an object into his back at 8:10 p.m. on the 800 block of Fitzwater Street, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. One turned him around and demanded his cell phone, then struck him twice in the face. After grabbing the phone, the two fled on foot, going east on Fitzwater. Fire Rescue transported the victim to Hahnemann University Hospital in stable condition and the gun was recovered at the scene; it will be analyzed for fingerprints, Tolliver said. The men were described as black and in their early 20s; one was described as 6 foot with short, braided hair, while the other was described as 180 pounds. The latter fled on a mountain bike. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013.

Teen charged in gunpoint robbery

Arrest in Laundromat owner’s murder

A 14-year-old was charged with robbing a driver at gunpoint as he parked his car on a Point Breeze street early Monday. The 32-year-old stopped on the 1400 block of South 22th Street and, as he removed the keys from the ignition at 12:05 a.m., the teen allegedly walked up to the driver’s-side window and demanded money, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The offender is believed to have pulled a chrome-colored weapon from underneath this shirt and said, “Give it to me now or I’ll bang you.” The man handed over his wallet with $9 and identification, as well as his keys. The teen allegedly fled south toward Gerritt Street on a mountain bike, Tolliver said. Police arrived on the scene minutes later and saw a 14-year-old boy riding a bike on Gerritt’s sidewalk, Tolliver said. Police followed him westbound for three blocks and arrested him on the 2400 block of Reed Street. Police found $9 on the resident from the 2600 block of Earp Street, Tolliver said. He was charged with robbery, theft, simple assault, firearm violations and related offenses.

The man who allegedly murdered a Passyunk Square woman was apprehended last week for her, as well as a Logan man’s, death. Siegfried Moore, 51, of the 4700 block of North 15th Street, was arrested Aug. 25 in connection to the death of Laundromat owner Huan Mo, of the 800 block of Dickinson Siegfried Moore Street, according to the Police Public Affairs Unit. Mo’s Logan-based business is on the same block as Moore’s home. Moore is believed to have stabbed the 53-year-old multiple times in her chest and back inside her business’ office Aug. 11. Her family found her there later that night when she did not return home from work. Moore also was charged with the Aug. 4 murder of 19-year-old Devaughn Smith, who resides two blocks south of where he was killed on the 4800 block of North Camac Street and about three blocks from Moore’s residence.


Police Report Moore was charged with two counts of murder and related offenses. Moore had served time and was on probation for a 2004 aggravated assault, according to court documents. He also was found guilty of possession the following year.

Wrong way On a Grays Ferry street, police spotted a Mercedes-Benz going the wrong way down a one-way street and then discovered the driver had allegedly just run over her ex-girlfriend. Police responded to 30th and Moore streets for a report of a person with a weapon at 1:50 p.m. Saturday and found Sylvia Mitchell, 43, of West Philly, driving her blue 2002 vehicle south on 30th, which runs north, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The car also had hood damage, Tolliver said. After police pulled Mitchell over, a 28-year-old, who had scratches and bruises on her arms and face as well as a bump on her head, told police Mitchell rammed her with the car while she was riding her bike, Tolliver said. A medic arrived at the scene, but the woman refused hospital treatment. Mitchell was charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, possession of an instrument of crime, recklessly endangering another person and related offenses.

Dough taken An armed man ordered everyone to the ground inside a Point Breeze doughnut shop last week and, as he left with a customer’s cash, yelled out, “It’s not about you. It’s about the Koreans.” Wearing all black and carrying a large gun covered in a plastic bag, the man entered M&M Fresh Donuts, 2118 Washington Ave., and ordered three customers, including a 7-year-old, to the floor at 1:30 p.m. Aug. 26, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. When he tried to access the back of the store where the 55-year-old owner was, he found a locked iron gate blocking his path. He instead picked up a 44-year-old woman’s $238 from the ground, pointed his gun at the register through the service window, and screamed the strange statement as he exited the store. There were no injuries. The man was described as black, in his 30s, 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-10, thin and wearing cutoff, three-quarter-length black pants, a black long-sleeve shirt and gray sneakers with a wide stripe on the side. He was carrying a black satchel and had black material covering his face. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013.

Neighbor charged in burglary The duo allegedly responsible for two robberies of a Grays Ferry home were nabbed by police — and the second burglary is believed to have caught a neighbor on video surveillance doing the deed. At 9:48 p.m. Aug. 1, a 31-year-old woman and her 34-year-old husband reported two laptops and a digital camera stolen from a residence on the 1400 block of South 31st Street, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. Following the break-in, the couple installed a camera system that captured a second burglary at 11:30 a.m. Aug. 27. A camera and $600 were taken at that time, Tolliver said. Two days later, police entered Loquail Moore’s home on the same block with a search warrant. Officers found the 19-year-old and Wayne Beckwith, 24, of the 1400 block of South 27th Street, as well as the couple’s digital cameras, Tolliver said. Moore allegedly admitted he had sold one of the laptops, but detectives recovered the other. Moore and Beckwith were charged with four counts of burglary, theft, receiving stolen property, criminal conspiracy and criminal trespassing. continued on page 12

With their faces allegedly covered, Richard Jacovini-Nebbio, 19, of the 1800 block of South Juniper Street; Michael DiClementi, 18, of the 1800 block of South 18th Street; and a 17-year-old from the 2400 block of South Carlisle Street allegedly approached the 17-, 18-, 20- and 22-yearold men in the park at 1500 Oregon Ave. 11 p.m. Aug. 25, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. After allegedly taking the men’s cell phones and jewelry, the trio is believed to have fled on foot, going west on Oregon to a home on the 1700 block of Oregon, Tolliver said. There, police apprehended the teens and recovered the weapons, which included a knife and a meat hook, that were believed to be used in the mugging, as well as the missing goods, Tolliver said. All three were charged with robbery, theft, receiving stolen property, criminal conspiracy, possession of an instrument of crime and simple assault; Jacovini-Nebbio and DiClementi also were charged with burglary and criminal trespass.

L

ike any rebellious teenagers, The Philadelphia Live Arts Festival and Philly Fringe enjoy finding provocative means to flout convention. Now in their 14th year, the two offer simultaneous 16-day celebrations of new and established performers presenting original works and adapted pieces. With 207 shows, this year’s editions have a high number of local representatives, as nine performances in the first week alone involve either a resident or a nearby location. Running Sept. 3 to 18, the dual extravaganzas are held at 123 places, with a dozen in the area. One-hundred-eighty-five of the shows will count as Fringe events, meaning the artists in them will be able to “give expression to and develop their talents and artistic visions in total artistic freedom,” according to the festivals’ website. Seven of the nine shows with local flavor have Fringe designation and the other two will uphold the pledge of the Live Arts Festival’s website to “present audiences with high-quality work that entertains, challenges and stimulates.” Though the nine productions promise to intrigue, two in particular seek to probe the partnership between fear and action: Tribe of Fools, a mostly South Philadelphia-based physical theater company, offers “Dracula,” an original adaptation of Bram Stoker’s examination of Romania’s most feared native son, and the 18-member Idiopathic Ridiculopathy Consortium will act out 14 performances of “The Madwoman of Chaillot,” a 1943 piece concerning Nazi Germany’s occupation of Paris. The 75-minute effort represents the Tribe’s 10th overall show since 2003 and fourth Fringe appearance, while the Consortium’s take on a “ragtag band of Parisian cafe habitues” and their quest to “rid the world of greed, exploitation and cruelty” is its 14th since forming in ’06. According to the festival’s website, “Brain fever, nightmares, shadows and madness saturate this dynamic new look at ‘Dracula.’” For co-founder and artistic director Jay Wojnarowski, that new look owes its origins to his schooling. “We produce about one show a year,” Wojnarowski, a resident of the 700 block of Wharton Street, said of his Tribe of Fools. In his second stint as a resident, he is aiming to make every show his company produces “something we are very proud of, something that’s spectacular.”

His company’s fresh analysis of the Irishman’s text began as an 10-minute production at the Dell’Arte International School of Physical Theatre in Blue Lake, Calif., in ’02. There, Wojnarowski studied corporeal mime, pantomime, acrobatics, clown, commedia, melodrama, mask technique, tango and contact improvisation. He and Terry Brennan, the company’s other co-founder, have led Tribe of Fools for its entirety. “At Dell’Arte, we had to have something to perform each week,” Wojnarowski, who is pursuing a business administration degree at Peirce College to increase his marketing acumen, said. Thriving on the rush of having minimal time to create, he and his schoolmates chose to adapt “Dracula.” A roommate’s difficulties handling his psychotic epi-

sign a waiver absolving the company of any responsibility. “The piece is an exploration of the fear we learned about through our roommate’s situation. We are looking for drastic reactions,” he said. “Hence we have the waiver.” SIMILAR REACTIONS WILL not be novel to fans of absurdist theater. The Consortium’s “The Madwoman of Chaillot” blends humor with the perils of corporate aggression. Artistic director Tina Brock, of the 800 block of Kimball Street, is pleased to have the play uphold her gang’s mission of preserving and presenting difficult and rarely produced absurdist works. “Works like ‘Madwoman’ are what I enjoy as a performer,” Brock said of

sodes prompted Wojnarowski to take the group’s brief treatment of Stoker’s work, which he said had “so much potential,” and expand it. The result is a modified glimpse into the world of the Transylvanian prince. “Every element of the show will target fear reactions,” Wojnarowski said. His company, which recently gained nonprofit status, will stage 13 performances at The Lantern Lab at the Lantern Theater, Ninth and Ludlow streets, Sept. 3 to 11. Because of the show’s intent to monitor fear responses, the Tribe wants to make its audience members aware of what awaits them, especially those atrisk of adverse health effects as a result of being frightened; therefore, all must

the pieces that often present comic elements, tragic images and characters struggling for existential merit. “They are heady works on paper, but they come alive on stage.” Exploring universal situations and current themes, “Madwoman” is not a work only members of “the intellectual squad” will grasp, according to Brock, whose company will be making its fifth Fringe appearance. “The play deals, in a sense, with theories of expansion. I see Philadelphia’s art scene as expanding. The city is booming as a hotbed for art. I’m glad ‘Madwoman’ can have its shot,” she said of the 120-minute play that will drop at Walnut Street Theatre Studio 5, 825 Walnut St.,

Sept. 3 to 18. Other Fringe shows likewise will explore art’s depth. Fifth-and-Dickinson-streets resident Benjamin Cromie will team with brother Aaron, of Tasker and Bancroft streets, to present “Afoot!,” a 75-minute treasure hunt through Northern Liberties. “Prudence” features Gina Martinelli, formerly of Fourth and Bainbridge streets, in a new play about “murder, love and dead birds.” Producer Margie Strosser, of 13th and Tasker streets, will have the 75-minute “All Victorious Ocean” school audiences on Yeshe Tsogyal, the first Tibetan woman to achieve enlightenment. Eric Balchunas continues his Wawapalooza series with “Wawapalooza 4: Damaged Goods.” The 70-minute feature helps the resident of 11th Street and Washington Avenue parody, among others, envi-

ronmentalists, Taser victims, vegans and exes. Rounding out the Fringe portion is “Absence/Presence,” a 75-minute look at sex, social activism and poetry at the CHI Movement Arts Center, 1316 S. Ninth St. The two Live Arts features are “Chicken,” starring Charlotte Ford and “8,” with five local choreographers each offering 60-minute performances. The former centers on three people maneuvering through a clown play that tackles fear head-on. The Festival’s website cites Ford, of 13th and McKean streets, with creating avant-garde slapstick art that celebrates “sublime stupidity with joyful abandon.” The latter show spotlights Festival-commissioned works on literature, archetypes and mental health from Megan Mazarick, Meg Foley, Olive Prince, Daniele Strawmyre and Jaamil Olawale Kosoko.

News continued from previous page for Stevi’s fourth-grade debut: pens, clay, hand sanitizer and lined Post-it notes. “We’re pretty much done,” McCall, who began shopping in mid-July, said. “Some of the stuff I couldn’t find or wasn’t cheap enough.” Lined Post-its was one item the pricesavvy mother couldn’t bring herself to get, instead buying two packs of a more pricefriendly yellow sticky notes sans the lines. “Nowadays, you’re buying supplies for the whole class and not just your child,” she said. More families are shopping at office supply stores with 32.4 percent — up 5.1 percent from last year — while bargains and coupons influence 17 percent of all purchases. To accommodate that, Staples is offering coupons along with penny and dollar deals on a variety of school supplies, Pevenstein said. Julie Weiss came specifically to Staples to scoop out a deal she saw in the store’s weekly circular for daughter Rachel, 11, who will enter the seventh grade at Merion Station’s Waldron Mercy Academy Wednesday. “We came here because of the calculator. ‘Two days only’ on sale,” the Center City resident said, as she read the sale clipped from the circular along with a $5 coupon. Meanwhile, the Bilbrough family of

Penndel, Bucks County, did some lastminute shopping Monday. Mother of two Melissa Bilbrough was picking up things with daughters Julia, 11 and Madison, 8 as the next day her girls were headed back to Herbert Hoover Elementary School in Bucks County. Her friend Corinne Milek, a senior at Temple University, tagged along to purchase items for her return to campus. “Bargaining for some of the stuff, but splurging on the stuff that they’re going to use every day,” Melissa Bilbrough, who grew up at 11th and Shunk streets, said. She’s lenient about letting the girls pick what they like when it comes to backpacks and lunchboxes, she said. “It makes homework less hectic and school days less hectic,” Bilbrough said of having the personalized touches. Wrapping up the shopping, Julia and Madison now were prepared for their first day of fifth and third grades, respectively, which was Tuesday. “And I’m excited,” Madison said with a purple messenger bag over her shoulder and her hands full of crayons, index cards, a pink lunchbag and pink water bottle.

Finding the wanted A local woman helped nab a man who eventually was charged with the pharmacy store attack that left a 1st District lieutenant with broken ribs. Aug. 17, Tarrah Curcio was talking to a neighbor after returning from coaching a swim team at Barry Playground, 18th and Johnston streets, when she saw a man drive by on a red bicycle. She spotted him turning on a side street shortly before police flocked to the area. She described the man — later identified as Perry Martin, 42, of the 1700 block of South 28th Street — and inquired if he was who they were looking for. “I pointed in the direction where he went,” she said. “I stood on the corner telling every cop.” She then learned Lt. Douglas Stanford, a 29-year veteran of the department who was promoted from traffic sergeant two years ago, was assaulted at the Rite Aid, 1500 W. Moyamensing Ave., at 5:40 p.m. that day and was outraged. “I had emotional feelings, as well as much respect for this lieutenant,” she said. “It was my natural adrenaline going crazy.” Curcio, whose sister Melissa is a 3rd District cop, helped police in their search and her instincts took her down an alley, where she says she saw the bike-riding man turning his clothes inside-out. After greeting him, she ran to contact police. As the man later deemed Martin, who has since been charged with aggravated assault, resisting arrest and related offenses, sped out of the alley, Curcio remembers yelling, “Stop that man. Stop that man. He’s the one that’s wanted.” The 33-year-old who stands 5-foot-1 tossed her sandals aside and chased the man barefoot for five blocks. On the phone with 911, she told the operator of her pursuit block by block until she located police, but she had lost sight of the man. Detectives interviewed Curcio and the following afternoon she identified the bike and Martin’s photo from an array. Martin was arrested at 3:55 that same day. Stanford, who suffered three broken ribs, a bruised lung and a bruised skull, was released from the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania Aug. 23.

With a military career that has spanned decades, a former resident earned a distinguished promotion last week.

Adjutant Gen. Jessica Wright, left, who nominated Walt Lord, center, for his prestigious honor, attended the Aug. 27 ceremony. Grace Lord (right) placed the Brigadier General stars on her husband’s shoulder.

By Jess Fuerst Review Contributor

T

here is personal service, professional service and then the type of service that spans all aspects of life. For Walt Lord, originally from Second and Ritner streets, service is something he lives every day. “I’ve been in the [Pennsylvania] Army National Guard, full-time Army National Guard, for 20 years now,” Lord, 45, said. The officer recently was promoted to brigadier general, one of his military branch’s distinguished ranks, at a ceremony Aug. 27. The process began with a nomination then moved to a Senate review panel; a federal Army review; a Pentagon review; a White House approval from the president; and finally a required confirmation from the U.S. Senate. Lord’s promotion packet began two years ago. “You have to go before the Senate and testify

why you are qualified for the position,” he said. “I guess the question that really stuck with me was the first I was asked … The chair asked me, ‘What is your outlook on leadership?’ And the things I told her were most important to me [that is] leadership by example — you have to always be willing to do the things you tell others to do — a selfless leader and one who looks out for others more than your own interests.” Lord’s answers struck the right chord, culminating with last week’s ceremonial promotion. In attendance were former and current colleagues, family and friends — about 350 in all. “The way our adjutant general, Gen. Wright, does it, is she brings up the topic with you and says, ‘I want this to be your day and I want you continued on page 16

LIFESTYLES continued from page 14 to do it the way you want to do it,’” Lord, who serves under Jessica Wright and who was nominated by her, said. “Some officers really go for pomp and circumstance and fanciness in their ceremony. I took the simple approach.” Lord had a chaplain deliver the invocation and a few spoke of his accomplishments and character. He also made sure to incorporate the most important people in his life. “[At the ceremony, they] take off the old rank and put on the new rank and you get to choose the people to do it, who is special to you. Gen. Wright did one and my wife, Grace, did the other shoulder. “And under the dress-blue jacket we have a shirt with rank on the shoulders. And I did what I saw someone do once and what I’ve done at every other promotional ceremony. I had my two sons do those,” Lord said of Ryan, 19, and Drew, 16. The honor is one Lord boasts little about, instead wondering at the fact he has achieved so much through his unwavering commitment. “I felt overwhelmed, actually. It’s a humbling experience when so many people come out to share in that kind of event with

you,” Lord said. “You hope you’ve made an impact and they might want to see that and you see so many people come through the door. It really is overwhelming.” LORD’S FATHER STILL lives at Philip and Ritner streets, in Pennsport, where Lord grew up. Attending Our Lady of Mount Carmel, 2319 S. Third St., and St. John Neumann, formerly at 2600 Moore St., Lord was interested in joining the military for “as long as I can remember. “My family doesn’t really have a military history or background. I just knew I was always going to be in the Army,” Lord, whose son Ryan is in the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) at King’s College in Wilkes-Barre, said. “It was just the sense of service and patriotism. Lots of kids watched military shows and movies and it sparked an interest in me.” Upon graduating from high school, Lord entered Valley Forge Military Academy and College, where he agreed to two years of school and ROTC training while committing to finishing his bachelor’s at another institution upon graduation. When he left Valley Forge as a commander second lieutenant, he finished his bachelor’s in criminal justice at La Salle University. “I went to work for a year at Mobil Oil, the gas station company. I managed a sta-

tion in Camden,” Lord, who returned to Pennsport when he was at La Salle, said. “I realized my heart wasn’t in that. I went to General Electric and was an instructor on a tank simulator … I’d instruct [National Guard members] on a tank simulator on how to hit targets. “After that I came in to full-time service with the National Guard.” His service — which, since he enlisted at 17, has spanned 28 years — has taken him across the states and beyond. Eleven years were spent working for the National Guard Bureau in Washington, D.C., spending about two years on projects in Germany and Belgium, respectively, all while starting a family. “My sons consider themselves from Philadelphia although they have never lived there. They moved us around quite a bit for those 11 years. In fact, one of them lived in three states and two European countries before his fifth birthday,” Lord said. “We had moved to [northern] Virginia and I had the offer to come home and I wanted to make sure I talked to the family about it, see what they thought. “So when I came home, the younger boy was like, ‘I want to move back to Pennsylvania!’ and he had lived there for one month of his life and he was an infant. The older son, with a very stern look in his eye,

said, ‘I want to move back home to Pennsylvania, but it’s the last time I’m moving.’ “They definitely consider themselves Philadelphians. Their rooms are full of Eagles Phillies and Flyers stuff.” While Lord — who currently calls Mechanicsburg home — only gets to return to his childhood block every three months, he still feels he is a South Philly boy at heart. Though his father could not attend the recent ceremony, Lord intends to drop by and play a recording of the event, as his new status was not something he always expected to happen. “You can’t help but [set goals], because when I was a brand-new, 19-year-old second lieutenant, I thought it’d be really cool to be a captain someday, and that was two promotions above lieutenant,” Lord said. “And then I thought the Armed Cavalry men — we are the ones who go out in front of the friendly force and find the enemy before the enemy finds our guys. I thought, a lieutenant colonel position, if I had that I’d consider myself accomplished. If I could retire as a Cavalry Squad commander that would be good. “And that was two promotions ago. So now I don’t care to set anything higher than that.” SPR Comment at news/lifestyles.

Garrett (Justin Long) and Erin (Drew Barrymore) attempt to make their relationship work while living on opposite coasts.

By R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer

N

ot even bad-movie-Band-Aid Drew Barrymore can patch up “Going the Distance,” an infernal rom-com that holds a secure spot on the list of the year’s worst films. Barrymore plays Erin, a slightly manic overgrown tween who’s supposedly a crackerjack journalist underneath her thick layers of arrested development. Barrymore’s real-life beau, Justin Long, is Garrett, the token nice-guy-in-need-ofa-dating-manual who meets Erin in New York, then tries the long distance thing when she leaves for San Francisco. Both phony, paper-doll characters are detestable, and they’re not even the worst ones. Director Nanette Burstein has an aptitude for documentary (she’s the woman behind “On the Ropes” and “American Teen”), but her narrative feature debut exhibits the insight and sense of humor of a 15-year-old living in a box. The people in Geoff LaTulippe’s script — annoying, as-seen-on-TV archetypes all — are the creations of someone who either hates 30-somethings or hasn’t met a live one in a decade. Everything they like and talk about is a mundane Gen-X cliché, from “Top Gun”-era Tom Cruise to “The Shawshank Redemption” to the incessant cry of, “Who DOES that?!?” Moreover, “Going the Distance” is unfortunately crude, yearning for the foul-mouthed cuteness of a Judd Apatow flick but straining with every step. There’s nothing funny, edgy or endearing about its recklessly dropped Fbombs, slapstick sex scenes or masturbatory jokes, especially when they’re delivered by Dan (Charlie Day) and Box (Jason Sudeikis), two of the most ingratiating best-bud-

buttinskies in memory. Amidst all of this (and long before poor, squandered Christina Applegate is introduced as Erin’s stern sister), the couple’s romance barely registers. And, though there’s a glimmer of charm in their New York courtship, filmed on the fly in shaky cam, much of their love story consists of back-and-forth repetition and whining about painfully predictable conflicts. “Going the Distance” lives up to its name in the worst way — it’s a long trek through comedy hell.

Going the Distance R One reel out of four In area theaters tomorrow

Recommended Rental Solitary Man R Available Tuesday Ailing superstar Michael Douglas gives a slick, expert performance in “Solitary Man,” a sophisticated tragicomedy that follows the self-induced descent of Ben Kalmen, Douglas’ regressive, very-badlybehaved central character. Written and directed by Brian Koppelman and David Levien, the film co-stars Jesse Eisenberg, Mary-Louise Parker, Susan Sarandon and Douglas’ longtime friend, Danny DeVito.

SOUTh PHILLY REVIEW I september 2, 2010

e had a tattoo of a boxer on his forearm. The boy never asked him why; he just knew that his father seemed embarrassed by it. And then one day, for no apparent reason, his father told him about the mysterious tattoo. His father had once been an amateur boxer. He hadn’t been very good at it, his father admitted. The boy was surprised because to him his father was good at everything he attempted. His father smiled. He had decided to end his quest for a career in boxing when, one night, he got knocked out in the first round. “Your Uncle Sammy was the fighter in the family,” he told the boy. “Sammy was a helluva fighter.” The boy always knew that he would never be as strong as his father. He felt that, deep down, his father was disappointed. He liked to fool around and shadow box with the boy, jabbing at him until suddenly he would throw an overhand right that would just stop short of the boy’s chin. His father would continue to bob and weave and make this strange snorting sound through his nose that the boy guessed boxers must make when they fought in the ring. His father would eventually become bored because, instead of feigning to fight back, the boy would only turn away. Years later, when the boy became an adult, he finally realized that shadowboxing was his father’s way of showing his affection. His father was a product of his time; men didn’t show affection for other men, even their sons. He never heard his father actually say to him,” I love you.” It just wasn’t the way strong men acted. The one sport his father really loved and understood was boxing. His parents bought their first TV set in 1951, a 12-and-a-half inch, black and white Admiral three-way combination with a radio and phonograph. The boy loved watching boxing on TV with his father. His father would regale him with stories of the great old-time champions such as Tommy

Loughran, who was from South Philadelphia. But the fighter his father adored the most was Jack Dempsey. He made all of Dempsey’s great fights come alive for the boy like the night that the “Manassa Mauler” had Gene Tunney knocked out, but failed to go to his neutral corner. The “long count” was what they called it. Tunney was on the canvas for 14 seconds, but was never counted out, and he came back to defeat Dempsey. Eventually Rocky Marciano replaced Dempsey in his father’s heart. Ethnic pride won out. It was a great era for boxing. There were three televised bouts a week. The big fights were on Wednesday and Friday nights, but there were some wild, rough-house brawls televised from Brooklyn’s Eastern Parkway Arena on Monday nights too. His father would fire “punches” at the television screen and dance around the set as if he were in the ring. His mother would laugh at how excited his father became in the heat of the TV battle. They watched Sugar Ray Robinson defend his title in a bloody battle with Jake LaMotta, one of six times the “Sugar Man” would fight LaMotta. His father rooted wildly for LaMotta while the boy silently hoped Robinson would endure. The boy was entranced by Sugar’s style and grace and lethal left hook. He thought that he had never seen someone as beautiful and elegant as Sugar Ray. His family had a connection to middleweight champion Joey Giardello. The boy’s cousin was godmother to one of Joey’s kids. A Giardello fight became a real family event. They cheered at every punch that Giardello landed and winced when Joey got hit. Boxing is a brutal and often corrupt sport, but it also has a savage beauty, and boxing brought the boy and his father closer than anything else in their lives. His father took him to South Philadelphia’s Toppi Stadium to see his first live fight — Joey Giardello against Otis Graham. And finally on July 7, 1952, his father took him to the one and only title fight that he ever saw in person — the welterweight championship bout between the champ, Kid Gavilan, and the challenger from Strawberry Mansion, Gil Turner. Turner was a rising star, but he was not ready for the Kid. Gavilan wore him down with his famous bolo punch and ended Turner’s dreams of a championship in the 11th round. Years after the boy had grown to manhood and his father had lost his personal battle with lymphoma, long after the Gavilan fight was lost in the cobwebs of history, the boy-now-man remembered that night. After all, it was for the title, and he had been there with his father on that night so long ago, and he had never loved his father more. SPR

Mercy Starts With Me

“ Mercy kept me in the game! ” After having major surgery to remove a 12-inch blood clot from my leg, I noticed that my foot and toes were turning black, and the incisions from my surgery were not healing properly. When my doctor told me that he might have to amputate a portion of my foot and toes, I was afraid I would never walk independently again. More importantly, there was a chance I would have to give up my lifetime passion of bowling.

Menu Guide 2010

My doctor recommended Mercy Home Health’s skilled nursing services to help care for my wounds. The nurse came to my home every day with such a pleasant spirit, giving me hope that I would walk normally and would even be throwing my 12 lb. bowling ball down the lane in no time. The nurse was right! After several months of treatment, my foot completely healed. I am thankful that Mercy kept me in the game!

eral young women chatted over a pitcher of sangria. I asked for a Fleur de Lehigh ($2) with a plastic cup. I settled in and began reading my Sunday New York Times magazine. I asked the man next to me what time Frog Burger closes. Turns out, he and Noah Poses, Steve’s 23-year-old son, attended Germantown Friends School together. Soon, his younger brother and cousin arrived for a round of Walt Whits. A little before 7 p.m., a woman yelled out “last call for happy hour.” A number of people stepped up to the stand for one last round. Steve Poses, who was at the forefront of Philadelphia’s restaurant renaissance, has a sure winner here. Where else can adults and kids enjoy a meal in the shadow of Ben Franklin, even though he sits inside the museum named in his honor? Frog Burger is open from 11:30 a.m.

bed-and-breakfasts in Charleston, S.C. I loved the tart flavor and it was not overly sweet. I wanted to try the Chesapeake crab roll ($8.50). I applaud Poses for using blue crab from Maryland. Chunks of the sweet shellfish were tossed in a light mayo and stuffed into a hot-dog potato roll lined with shredded red leaf lettuce. The crab lacked seasoning, so I sprinkled on some salt and pepper. Some fresh herbs would have done the trick, as well. Summer slaw ($2.50) was a hefty bowl of shredded red and green cabbage with red onion tossed in a light lemon sauce. There was a thin, milky, liquid at the bottom of the bowl. It was not mayonnaise, buttermilk or yogurt because these would have added some tang. Just like the crab roll, chopped fresh herbs would have given the slaw a fine flavor. Roasted sweet corn and sweet pepper salad ($3.50) also was a hefty bowl of local produce, but it too lacked flavor. Roasted corn imparts a smokiness; this version did not. The specks of red and green roasted peppers added color and texture contrast. But on came the salt and pepper. I wanted to take a menu home, but the young man who took my order said, “sorry, hon. We ran out.” It’s kind of cute to hear a 16-year-old call me hon. I was curious about the 5 to 7 p.m. happy hour. Bottled beers are half price, but I really wanted to see the crowd.

aiting for the brutal heat to break is like waiting for Godot. I ticked off the days, holding my breath for a bit of coolness, so I could visit Frog Burger, Steve Poses’ picnic-style stand on the lawn of The Franklin Institute. Finally the day arrived. I walked over and took in the atmosphere. There are large, wooden, picnic tables, umbrellas to shield diners from the sun and comfy plastic chairs. The small menu centers on burgers, allbeef hot dogs and crab rolls. Sides run the gamut from summer coleslaw, french fries, corn and sweet pepper salad and fried green tomatoes. A kid’s burger platter also is available. Step up and give your order and someone calls your name when it’s ready. A bacon cheddar burger ($8.50) consisted of 5 ounces of juicy beef that could have been better seasoned. Still, it was properly seared and medium-rare. The fries ($3) were scrumptious — piping-hot, but in need of salt. The piece de resistance were the fried green tomatoes ($5). I’ve eaten them all over the Deep South and can say Poses’ stood their ground. Dusted in flour and cornmeal and deep-fried to a crisp, golden-brown, these five beauties were decadent, especially when dipped in the rich, creamy, homemade tartar sauce. Poses only serves sweet tea, which is not a good idea. I have friends who are diabetic. I personally do not like sweet tea, so I opted for a homemade lemonade ($2.50) that took me back to the one I savored in

chops and blew the shofar she brought with her. It took several attempts, but she finally got a big toot from this instrument made from a ram’s horn. The shofar is blown on Rosh Hashana and at the end of Yom Kippur. We feasted on brisket and raised our glasses with the traditional toast “l’chayim” — to life.

■ Brisket ■ Ingredients:

By Phyllis Stein-Novack Food Columnist

A

ll of my life, I’ve been a nice Jewish girl. I was one of those crazy kids who loved Hebrew school and attended Saturday morning services. The beautiful, ancient, liturgical music transported me to a higher place. At one time, I wanted to be a cantor. Most Jewish women I know make brisket. When I tell my friends I have never braised one, their reply was, “What do you mean you’ve never made a brisket?” This is akin to Jewish culinary heresy. My grandmother and mother never made brisket. We preferred prime rib. Now that Rosh Hashana is near, it’s about time I learned how to make this very Jewish roast. Since Rosh Hashana begins at sundown two days after Labor Day, I had to find a nice Jewish boy or girl chef to teach me how to prepare this cut of meat during the dog days of August. I checked in with Michael Schulson of Sampan. He declined because he is busy at his Japanese place, Izakaya, at the Borgata in Atlantic City and not sleeping too much since the birth of his son in February. Chef David Katz, who owns Meme, was an intriguing possibility because his maternal grandmother is a Sephardic Jew. He declined because he is busy at the Fitler Square eatery and with his family. I recalled chef Michael McNally, who owns London Grill with his former wife, Terry, always prepares traditional Jewish fare at the Fairmount restaurant during the holidays. I have tasted his brisket, chopped liver, matzo ball soup and potato latkes and they are all scrumptious. Terry and their son, Jake, are Jewish. Michael is a lapsed Catholic. Who knew a nice Irish boy could rival a Jewish mother in the kitchen? He can and he does. Michael e-mailed me the recipe several weeks before our 11 a.m. start time. As always, Dash the photographer

With Rosh Hashana just days away, the secrets of the ultimate brisket are revealed. was on hand to record the delicious deed. “Brisket is a tough piece of meat and has to braise for a long time,” Mike said. “You season it well with lots of kosher salt and pepper and sear it in a hot pot before the vegetables are seared and the liquid is added.” We heard the sound of beef sizzling and the aroma filled my kitchen. Mike, who is 54 and grew up in the Northeast, makes his own veal stock. “You can use packaged beef stock or chicken stock,” he said. “Two cups of dry, rich, red wine, such as Merlot, are also added to the pot.” While the brisket was braising, we made kasha and bows because it is a traditional side dish with any roast that gives up a good, rich gravy. Kasha is a healthy buckwheat grain. Bows are bow-tie pasta known as farfalle in Italian. Terry and Dash read the instructions on the back of the kasha box while Mike and I tended to the meat’s prep. Mike is self-taught. He studied with Madeleine Kamman in San Francisco for a short time, but he never attended culinary school. “My brother got me a job as a dishwasher at an Italian restaurant on Montgomery Avenue when I was in high school,” he recalled. That’s how he found his professional calling. While Mike was cooking the kasha, Terry polished her

1 6- to 8-pound brisket, patted dry with paper towels Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste Canola oil, to coat the bottom of a large heavy pot 1 large onion, diced 2 shallots, diced 4 fat cloves of garlic, sliced 1 pound carrots, cut into small chunks 8 stalks of celery, cut into chunks 4 cups of beef stock 2 cups of dry red wine 2 heaping tablespoons of tomato paste 8 large sprigs of fresh thyme

Directions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Season the brisket on all sides with the salt and pepper. Heat the oil over high. Sear the brisket on all sides until browned, about 10 minutes. Remove the brisket from the heat. Lower the heat to medium-high. Add the vegetables and sauté until browned, about 10 minutes. Add the stock, wine and tomato paste. Raise the heat to high and bring to a boil, scraping up the browned bits from the bottom of the pot. Return the brisket to the pot. Add the thyme.

Your new best friend RAVEN

Like to play? Then you’ve got something in common with Raven! Raven is a 2-yearold pit bull cross who came to the shelter because her owner did not have time to care for her anymore. Raven is a bit too boisterous to live with children, but if you’ve got another boisterous dog at home, she would probably like to have a canine sibling to play with. If you are interested in meeting Raven, come to the Pennsylvania SPCA, 350 E. Erie Ave., or contact www.pspca.org or 215-426-6300 to take her for a run in the dog park!

‘We have a style of play that allows us to be in every game. We can certainly scare some teams.’ —Neumann-Goretti girls’ soccer coach Jim McBride, on the upcoming season

Forwards, march!

A year removed from its first-ever playoff game, Neumann-Goretti’s girls’ soccer seeks stability. By Joseph Myers R e v i e w S ta f f W r i t e r

O

ne successful season does not make a storied program. However, those responsible for that campaign can enter the following year with enhanced confidence. The girls’ soccer team at Ss. NeumannGoretti, 1736 S. 10th St., starts its quest for continued good fortune Tuesday, with hopes of building on the program’s initial playoff splash. Seventh-year coach Jim McBride will field a mature team focused on using its defense-first mentality to surpass last year’s achievements. The thrill initially began appearing in the playoffs. With most of his core players returning, McBride is looking to build on last season’s six victories and make playoff berths standard. “We have a style of play that allows us to be in every game. We can certainly scare some teams,” McBride said of the 16 foes that await his Lady Saints. Eleven of those opponents will come from the Philadelphia Catholic League, which has replaced its two-division format with a massive 13-squad arrangement. “We will be competitive mostly because of our speed,” McBride said of his players, who practice and compete at the Southeast Youth Athletic Association (SEYAA) field at Seventh and Bigler streets, its home since 2008. That speed should benet the team as it looks to become one of 10 to qualify for the postseason. The 20 athletes share a mix of grit and positivity that McBride knows was in place even before they qualified for last year’s playoffs. “They’ve always had good attitudes. Making the playoffs helped, but these girls are competitors regardless,” McBride, who picked up his coaching philosophy of “defense first, goals second” during his playing days at Father Judge High School in the city’s Holmesburg section, said. He revealed more girls usually try out, but he is fortunate to have such a diverse bunch to rely on regardless of numbers. “Other teams often cut more girls than we have try out,” McBride said, referring to sizeable schools’ abilities to replenish their rosters yearly.

BASEBALL CAMP

Neumann-Goretti is hosting a baseball hitting and fielding camp Sept. 11 to 12 for ages 7 to 13. The cost is $85. Coaches and some players will provide instruction. Call Lou Spadaccini, 267-738-0717.

DVYAA BASEBALL

Registrations for the DVYAA fall baseball program are 6:30 to 8 p.m. Mondays through Fridays at Barry Playground, 18th and Johnston streets. Age groups are 7 to 9 and 10 to 12. Call 215-468-1265.

EOM FOOTBALL Junior Stephanie Uhl. left, maintains perfect eye contact on the ball during Monday’s practice at Seventh and Bigler streets. p h o t o b y n ata l i e k e l l e m

WHAT MCBRIDE HAS, however, is quite respectable. He returns three All-Catholic selections — senior midfielder Adriana Sciascia, junior midfielder Jennie Filippello and sophomore forward Karla Masciotro. The first two earned First-Team honors while Masciotro claimed a SecondTeam distinction. “What we might lack in skill, we offset with heart and desire,” McBride, who will add three players from Cardinal Dougherty, which closed in June, said. “However, the speed of our front six could match the speed of any team’s front six. When I came here, we were losing games 13- or 14-0. Those days are long gone.” Since opening camp Aug. 16, he noticed his team lacks an attackable weakness. Many of his players busied themselves with spring league play throughout the Northeast and beach tournaments in the summer. Their dedication is key, as only the Catholic League champions will qualify for the November Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association tournament.

Before summer gives way to autumn, McBride’s team will scrimmage today against South Jersey’s Kingsway Regional High School. Tuesday’s opener will be an away contest against Chichester, a challenger the Lady Saints earned a 3-1 victory over last season. Catholic League play begins Sept. 9. A week later, the girls will duel with Little Flower, which dumped them out of last year’s playoffs in a 4-0 match. McBride easily recalls that game. “We were down 1-0 with 10 minutes to go,” he said proudly. Afterwards, he and Little Flower’s coach spoke about the competition’s quality. “He told us we played well, and that’s a compliment because Little Flower is always loaded,” McBride said. “It is one of the powerhouses in the league. “He told us we can play with anyone. We’re going to prove that comment right this year.” SPR Contact Staff Writer Joseph Myers at jmyers@ southphillyreview.com or ext. 124. Comment at www.southphillyreview.com/sports/features.
