ertain scents and sights seem forever afliated with summer, most inspiring anticipation and recollection. One horrendous exception, dog feces, has become such a nuisance that Queen Village dwellers officially began rebelling against the refuse
last month by launching the Scoop the Poop campaign. Preaching practicality and responsibility, they are hoping their neighbors and fellow South Philadelphians will exorcise excrement from all communities. “Such waste has troubled the area for some time, and we’ve been addressing it very diligently for two years,” Sean Mellody, co-chair of QVK9, said Tuesday afternoon on the 300 block of Fitzwater
Street, which features one of the seven receptacles for feces-only disposal. “So far, dog owners are ecstatic and we’re looking to continue to rid them and others of the problem of wondering what’s going to happen to our streets.” Walking to the location with his dog, Barley, by his side, the resident of the 200 block of Queen See SCOOP THE POOP page 10 >>

Eye on students To the Editor: When teachers strike, students ultimately lose Exceptionally devoted teachers should be celebrated, but instead many of them are shoved out the door based upon a belief system that seniority should always trump job performance in the Philadelphia public school system. Many young, innovative instructorsâ€™ become the scapegoats of budget cuts because the layoff process is exclusively based upon who started teaching in the school district first. Great teachers are an integral part to a studentâ€™s academic success and the distinction between an effective and an ineffective one can mean the difference between a student becoming a high school dropout or a college graduate. In the Philadelphia public school system, standardized test
scores as well as students moving onto achieving a four-year degree are invariably low while the high school dropout rate continues to remain high. This is a complete disservice to the children who are the future leaders of our city and nation. I hope teachers think about that before they vote to decide whether or not to join the picket lines. Students missing precious instruction time pushes them back even further behind others who theyâ€™re competing with to be admitted to college or to acquire a job. The current status-quo, dysfunctional public education system places teachersâ€™ desires ahead of student needs. The overwhelming majority of public school teachers have a disdain for any accountability measures that link student success to teacher evaluations that rate their job performance. In the

real world, anybody else who consistently underperforms at their job gets fired regardless how long they have been at their current job. An often repeated fallacy that teacher union lobbyist have been spreading over the local airways with television commercials and radio ads is more taxpayer money dumped into the system without any accountability measures will guarantee better student results and the only real problem with the cityâ€™s education system is there is not enough funding. The reality is just throwing money at the problem would be cash down the drain without the culture of most public schools making drastic changes on how they operate and function. The teacher unionsâ€™ main objective is to guarantee the adults are able to cut ahead of the line in front of the children when it comes to the money that is reserved each year for the school districtâ€™s budget. Our tax dollars are going somewhere, but not into the
classrooms to enhance scholastic achievement. Itâ€™s time for community members to organize and stand up to demand their neighborhood schools will truly put students first, and that our tax dollars moving forward will be spent wisely. Schools are funded by citizens based upon contributions they make with taxes. Philadelphia has the highest poverty rate amongst all other large cities across America. If the teachers end up striking, the students, who the teachers claim to be fighting for, are the ones who will end up losing the most.

Passengers picked up Two Passyunk Square residents were apprehended and charged for violently stabbing their cab driver. ■ By Amanda L. Snyder Review Managing Editor
fter taking two men to Queen Village, a cabbie was stabbed 11 times and robbed Monday. At 1:15 a.m., the 37-year-old cabbie, who was transporting the duo, pulled up to the 900 block of South Front Street, police said. After both exited, Alejandro Gonzalez, 22, of the 1100 block of South Ninth Street, allegedly seemed as if he was retrieving cash from his Luis A. Moreno wallet. Instead, Luis A. Moreno, 21, of the same block, is believed to have stabbed the cabbie through the driver’s side window. Gonzalez supposedly joined in, but the taxi driver pulled the knife from him and started to attack Gonzalez until Moreno allegedly stabbed him in the head. The cabbie said, “Take the money,” Gonzalez allegedly took $205 and fled, with Moreno, west on an unknown street, police said. The taxi driver headed north a few blocks to South Street where he spotted police, who transported him in stable condition to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, according to police. He was treated there for superficial wounds to the left side of his head and chest, left arm, right hand and front of his neck. A short while later, police spotted Moreno walking through Jefferson Square Park, 300 Washington Ave., police said. He is believed to have tossed a knife as they approached him. Police recovered the object and arrested Moreno, who allegedly had bloody hands and a cut on his right forearm. Police arrested Gonzalez at his home at 1:15 a.m. Tuesday. The pair was charged with attempted murder, robbery, aggravated assault, conspiracy and related offenses, according to court records. Moreno and Gonzalez are being held on $100,000 and $150,000 bail, respectively, which had not been posted by press time. Gonzalez’s mugshot was not available at press time.
Backseat stranger A woman was raped in the back of a car in Fairmount and then dropped off at a Bella Vista intersection Saturday evening. A 24-year-old woman hopped into a
white sedan that she thought was a taxi at 6:30 p.m. on the 2200 block of Spring Garden Street, however, there was a man already in the backseat, according to police. That man assaulted her and took $41 before pushing the victim out of the vehicle at 10th and Catharine streets. The man in the backseat was described as black with a dark complexion, in his mid-20s, thin, having short hair and an unshaven face and wearing jeans. A detailed description of the driver was not available at press time. To report information, call Special Victims Unit at 215-685-3251, text PPDTIP (773847) or visit phillypolice.com/forms.
Familial frustration After police knocked down the door to a Whitman home, officers found a son assaulting his father. Authorities responded to a person screaming on the 400 block of Durfor Street at 7:08 p.m. Sunday, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. Police forced their way into the residence through a locked front door and allegedly saw Yeary Chau, 30, of the same block, standing over his 58-year-old father with a knife in his hand. Officers arrested Chau, who was charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault, terroristic threats and related offenses, according to court records. Chau’s bail, which had not been posted by press time, was set at $1 million. His patriarch was unconscious with severe head trauma and bleeding profusely from his head, back and shoulders, Tolliver said. A medic unit transported him to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in critical condition. It was unclear what prompted the attack.
Afternoon carjacking A woman was ripped from her car in Hawthorne last week. A 23-year-old woman was in her 2008 Acura MDX at a stop sign on the 1300 block of Fitzwater Street at 4:07 p.m. Aug. 29 when an unknown man walked in front of her auto, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. A second man then opened her door and pulled to the ground and hopped in. The other man got in the passenger’s side, and the duo fled westbound on Fitzwater and southbound on Broad Street. continued on next page

SCOOP THE POOP
continued from page 1
Street fraternized with Brent Chavis, cochair of the Queen Village Neighbors Association Dog Committee, the initiative’s mastermind. Frequent inspectors of the spot and the half-dozen others, the two have witnessed heavy use since the containers’ Aug. 10 debut. “We chose locations that have been prone to waste problems,” Chavis, of the 200 block of South Street, said of the selections, adding that Queen Village’s canine population has hit 6,000. “It’s such an important project because it is working toward building a sense of care for the environment and our health.” The community leader had long pined for his civic association and local government figures to devise a solution and received his wish earlier this year through interactions between QVNA president Jeff Hornstein, of the 300 block of Queen Street, and 1st District Councilman Mark Squilla, a FrontStreet-and-Snyder-Avenue denizen. Chavis and his peers set out with two matters to resolve, namely, the significant amount of walkers who fail to remove their pooches’ droppings and the supposed lack of holders for bags even if they were to scoop up the poop. “We figured, then, our setup would be great,” Mellody said while peering at the repository, which, like the others, is bolted to a street sign and contains a sticker with a helmet-clad dog declaring “Scoop the poop. That means you, soldier” just below the proclamation “No pile left behind.” “Because we offer a can and bags, there is really no excuse for ignorance anymore.” KNOWING THE MOST offensive and congested blocks, the Queen Village contingent pondered a few points in narrowing the locations for the nondescript additions, fashioned out of sewer drainage pipes. Not looking to disrupt the community apple cart, the overseers considered places not in front of homes or businesses, with residents more than welcome to interject and permit a container by their abodes. Also seeking to make use of their commercial contacts, the local advocates, who derived their idea from a similar feces-fighting plan in Old City, aligned themselves with establishments that are serving as sponsors. In those roles, the entities are agreeing to empty the receptacles at least twice a week, a process that also has proven beneficial. “The partnerships are going well,” Mellody said as his trusted companion received petting from Chavis. “Everything is not without its flaws, but we’re working on improving our offerings as the summer ends and the rest of the year unfolds.” Because of much-used eateries and stores
Brent Chavis, from left, and Sean Mellody hope to encourage fellow Queen Villagers and other South Philadelphians to be extremely mindful of abandoned excrement’s detrimental effects on their communities. S ta f f p h o t o b y K at h r y n P o o l e
along South Street, which falls within its environs, Queen Village never lacks for admirers, with residents and tourists combining to give the area thousands of regular consumers. Though their trash factors heavily into the expanse’s aesthetics, putrid pet waste has supplanted their garbage as a massive eyesore and nose offender. The holders have become consistent resting places for the latter, but, predictably, according to Chavis, the former, too. “People are placing their trash in them,” he said, with a passerby doing just that only seconds later. “We’re obviously looking to deter that practice because we clearly want them to be only for dog waste.” To stem the misplacements, Chavis has crafted lids for the cylinders and soon will fasten them to the existing aids at the aforementioned spot; Second and Christian streets; Third and Bainbridge streets; Christian Street and Columbus Boulevard; Front and Bainbridge streets; Washington Avenue and Water Street; and Front and Lombard streets. Within the next two weeks, he, Mellody and their colleagues will add three more containers to the Southeast portion of Queen Village, with all of their efforts earning kudos from Susan Kellogg. “We have to keep striving to beautify our neighborhood,” the resident of the 400
block of Catharine Street said upon hearing her Queen Village compatriots discussing their outreach, which they suspect will continue among dog owners Sunday at the Mario Lanza Park cleanup, 214 Catharine St. “I would like for someone to come to focus on [dog] urine, too, as that causes trouble for trees.” Aside from its being an immediate pest, the unattended poop can cause long-term misery, with Chavis noting he and the others are fearful of contamination of the Delaware River. If problems persist, he plans to contact the City’s Department of Licenses and Inspections to seek punishment for offenders. “Not everybody likes dogs, I know that, but Queen Village has so many of them,” he said. “It’s important to make the connection between our safety and their presence. They’re great friends and we have to make sure we tend to their output.” With proximity to three and four sites, respectively, Mellody and Chavis, also a dog owner, are expecting numerous opportunities to encourage upkeep and hear from community members on means to tame turds’ appearances anywhere but in a properly sealed and situated bag. “They’re consistently full,” Mellody, who would welcome occasions to talk with other civic groups, said of the containers. “Better they be that way than our streets.” SPR For more information, visit qvna.org/ qvna/projects.

Lowering the stakes
A Passyunk Square steak shop will celebrate its 47th anniversary by offering a $9 price reduction for its signature sandwich. Geno’s Steaks, 1219 S. Ninth St., will mark Sept. 10 by providing steaks — one per person — for 50 cents from noon to 2 p.m. “Celebrating this milestone with 50-cent cheesesteaks is the perfect way to thank our loyal customers for their ongoing support,” Geno Vento, the eatery’s president and owner, said. The site also will accept $5 donations, which will benefit American Association for Cancer Research, in exchange for Geno’s memorabilia. “Although I plan on shaking things up a bit as the new owner of Geno’s Steaks,” Vento, whose father Joey Vento started the shop, said, “I do plan on upholding my Father’s rich tradition of giving back to the community.” SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/news/briefs.

A South-of-South resident will use levity in defying gravity for a circus-theater show. P h o t o s p r o v i d e d b y D e e n a We i s b e r g
■ By Joseph Myers R e v i e w S ta f f W r i t e r
s a University of Pennsylvania-employed developmental psychologist, Deena Weisberg devotes her days to analyzing how children learn through literature, especially courtesy of fiction. While words win her curiosity, the bodies responsible for them offer the utterances competition, with the South-of-South dweller and her Tangle Movement Arts peers set to explore the latter tonight through Saturday, which they will execute at the Fishtown-situated Philadelphia Soundstages with “Break/Drift/Resist,” their new piece for FringeArts (See page 8 for more shows). “We always look to touch on elements of human interaction and are building around conflict as this show’s theme,” the 32-year-old circus-theater enthusiast said last week of her eight-member aerial acrobatics group. “With our identity as an all-woman company, we put emphasis on highlighting female strengths,
LIFESTYLES which comes through our great bonds with one another and focus on our artistry.” Primed for their third appearance in the late-summer celebration, Tangle’s performers call on circus disciplines such as aerial silks, rope and trapeze to craft their works, with Weisberg noting collaborations yield material designed to encourage audiences to ponder their relationships. With their recent output, she feels they are addressing the strengthening and altering of those unions. Primarily tasked to perform a silks act, she is looking forward to tackling the second component. “I’m something of an antagonistic presence,” the Ivy League educator said of testing her cohorts’ resolve through her fabric frivolity. “I try to impede the action and help patrons to see the ripple effects of community interaction.” Weisberg has contributed to Tangle’s tight-knit family for two years, finding herself so enthralled with exploring the physicality of her art that she even took to the trapeze while eight months pregnant for last year’s festival. She chooses endeavors based on the amount of training she can fit into her professional and parental schedules, yet no matter her selection, the aim remains the same. “This is my escape, my release,” she

said of her hobby, which she initiated four years ago through the Germantown-based Philadelphia School of Circus Arts, where she first defied gravity via the trapeze. “It’s definitely a different outlet and an interesting way to understand more about how we use our bodies to tell stories.” With “Break/Drift/Resist,” Weisberg believes Tangle is remaining true to its desire to tell multidimensional tales, which its constituents also accomplish with smallerscale pieces. As she reflects on the company’s philosophy of engendering strength among women and realizing the wonders of collaborative work, she knows that levity shines through all the seriousness. “It’s all very fun,” she said of the 90-minute brainchild. “We’re bringing circus theater to those who might not necessarily know about it, but regardless of their background, I think my duty is to help them to enjoy their outing.” HAILING FROM NORTH Jersey, Weisberg used an early interest in literature to devise her career path. Interested not just in what one could discern from reading a text, she matriculated at Stanford University, earning a degree in symbolic systems. Constantly inquiring about the acquisition and perception of knowledge, she returned to

unique in that we’re all women but kind of standard in that we want to get people to ponder who they are.” Blessed to have professional and theatrical camaraderie, the grateful individual also enjoys domestic bliss with husband Michael, a Penn philosophy professor, and their 9-month-old son, whom she contends will likely come to question her sanity for practicing circus arts. “Who knows, maybe he’ll enjoy it,” she said. “It’s been important for me to try to juggle all that makes up my life, and I’m glad Tangle’s in the equation.” Having learned of plans for “Break/Drift/ Resist” earlier this summer, she will love calling on spectators to gauge its originators’ progress in meshing circus arts, dance and theater components. From a personal standpoint, the four-show experience will keep her infatuated with abandoning inhibition and lifting her spirits. “The show deals with conflict, but underneath that are chances for growth,” Weisberg said. “That’s more important to realize.” SPR For tickets, visit tangle-arts.com.

When It’s Time To Be Represented… You’ll Want “Your LawYer” With You
the East Coast for her Yale University-issued doctorate in psychology, with further tutelage gained at Rutgers University. “I’m curious about the psychological processes of inspecting and contemplating literature, especially through fictional characters and situations that aren’t real,” the senior fellow, who joined Penn’s faculty in July after a stint as a Temple University postdoctoral researcher, said. “I like to examine what minds are thinking and what people are doing with those thoughts.” Looking to inspire similar affinity, she is helping undergraduates to navigate through her ever-evolving field. Because of the constant focus on understanding how youths can use numerous sources to heighten not only their comprehension but also their imagination, she hopes her charges will wish to become scientific leaders. Finding herself trying to be a credible figure in two realms, she also has decided to shun timidity and reach new heights in more ways than one. “It’s been an experiment, and a worthwhile one, at that, in coming to understand myself a bit more,” Weisberg said of her engagement with Tangle, whose website cites its work as reflective of “individuals of diverse identities, with an emphasis on queer and female experience.” “We’re

vivors pray for you frequently whereas praying for souls in hell will do them no good at all. Those pseudo-Nazis can just stop praying for Hitler right now because he’s not going any place higher up than the discount basement of Dante’s Inferno. There is a problem, it seems to me, with this concept of getting “paroled” out of purgatory through the prayers of the living. Some people have bigger families and more friends than me. Isn’t this a little unfair to introverts and folks who can’t reproduce? Back to my Catholic instruction days for a moment. At that time, heaven was described as being lucky enough to serve the Lord. I wondered about that because it seemed more like a waiter’s job, without tips. You can see why I was never at the top of my instructions class. I think the concept of purgatory is brilliant. Really. Few of us figure that we are good enough to go straight to heaven with, for instance, someone who tended to a leper colony. It is a known fact, that most of us tend to shy away from lepers. Leper colonies do not attract many tourists, even those that charge less than $15 for a bagel and cream cheese. We can’t possibly view ourselves as being worthy enough to be on a non-stop flight to heaven with Mother Theresa. No, it seems likely that our lot in the afterlife is to fly coach where there is a long layover at O’Hare before ever getting to heaven. Please note that on the flight to purgatory there is a $100 charge for each piece of luggage and only one restroom. Don’t expect any meal or in-flight movies either. In heaven, all of the seats are first class and lobster is served. The rest of us are on Jet Blue heading to purgatory. If you are going to hell, you fly China Air. I mean no disrespect but now that we have modernized our idea of purgatory, I think we have to rethink what hell is really like. I think the whole fire thing is highly overrated. I worked with some women who always turned off the air conditioning in our office. It was never warm enough for them, so I don’t think a little eternal fire is going to scare them into leading a good life. Just as everyone’s idea of heaven is a relative thing, I think the same goes for hell. My own idea of hell is having to watch TV with just one channel — QVC. I don’t need hellfire as punishment, just 24 hours of “In the Kitchen with David.” There is a special circle of hell for a governor who drastically cuts funds for education and gives tax breaks to the fracking industry. Imagine Tom Corbett in purgatory with angry parents and teachers. Call it retribution. SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/opinion/ cardella.
The Kid (Selena Gomez), from left, joins Brent Magna (Ethan Hawke) on a wild ride as he aims to meet the demands of his wife’s kidnapper.
Skip this ‘Getaway’ ■ By R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer
than Hawke and Selena Gomez may have already starred in two of the year’s best films (“Before Midnight” and “Spring Breakers,” respectively), but in “Getaway,” they shift gears to copilot what’s almost certainly one of the year’s worst. Hawke is Brent Magna, an ex-racer living in Bulgaria, who’s forced by his wife’s kidnapper, known only as “The Voice” (Jon Voight), to steal a Shelby Mustang Super Snake and go on a high speed, citywide crime spree. Credited as “The Kid,” Gomez is a hard-edged teen who gets tossed in the mix after holding Brent at gunpoint, then being forced by The Voice to ride shotgun. While it’s never not stupid, “Getaway” is far more fun when it makes no sense whatsoever. Early on, before Gomez comes aboard, The Voice, who says he’ll kill Brent’s wife, Leanne (Rebecca Budig), if all of his rules aren’t followed, tells Brent to simply careen down city streets and smash into everything possible for no discernible reason. The film doesn’t seem to have a clue that it’s campy, but at least the absurdity makes for giggly fun. Sadly, all entertainment value soon comes to a screeching halt, as Brent and The Kid do The Voice’s bidding while implausibly evading all police, and laying on exposition as thick as the heads of the film’s makers (script duties went to Gregg Maxwell Parker and Sean Finegan, while Courtney Solomon directs). Gomez may have a real future as an actress, but you know you’re in trouble when a cute-as-a-button, tweeny pop star is schooling you, lecture-hall-style, on the latest in tech surveillance.
But the biggest problem is the way “Getaway” is constructed. Though the makers have boasted that they avoided all computer-generated imagery, and destroyed some 130 vehicles, the supposed realism doesn’t do a thing to change the film’s nonvisceral feel. Partially and hideously shot on security-cam video, and edited with all the grace of a drunken joy-rider, the movie has a franticness that keeps the viewer at a far remove. It’s best to maintain distance by avoiding “Getaway” altogether.

Recommended Rental Love Is All You Need R Available Tuesday
Directed by Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier, “Love is All You Need” makes up in acting talent and atmosphere what it lacks in tonal strength. The Sorrento-set, partially Danish-language romance-comedy has its share of trite elements and on-thenose bits, but it also boasts a fine turn from the luminous Trine Dyrholm, and the best performance ever from Pierce Brosnan, who plays a cantankerous English businessman revived by the love of Dyrholm’s in-remission hairdresser.

recently was called upon to deliver a eulogy for a deceased member of our family. In the eulogy I referred to the fact that if we are lucky, some of us find a slice of paradise here on earth. For the deceased, his slice of paradise was simply fishing off a pier in Wildwood, N.J. with his faithful dog beside him. After the service, the good priest mentioned that what I was describing is actually heaven, which posed some complex metaphysical questions for me. I went fishing once and found the sport much closer to my concept of hell than heaven. The closest that fish play a part in my personal heaven is when they are filleted tableside and accompanied by a good chardonnay. I described my wife’s and my own idea of paradise on earth, the island of Bermuda (Aug. 22), except for the hotel restaurant that charges $15 for a bagel with cream cheese (I am not sure whether that includes toasting the bagel). Heaven it seems, is a relative thing. For those who believe in an afterlife, the question of whether you can find anything comparable to heaven here on earth is akin to blasphemy. I tend to hedge on whether there is an afterlife. Let’s face it — all of us have been promised good things before that haven’t panned out (like most of my investments). However, I don’t want to foreclose the idea of heaven because that might disqualify me from getting there. In my view, whether it be Bermuda or fishing off a pier in Wildwood, hopefully it is like a movie trailer — a preview of what heaven will be like. When I was a public school kid attending Catholic instructions, being from public school automatically disqualified you from going straight to heaven when you died. The best you could hope for was purgatory. There was a time when the church taught that the only difference between purgatory and hell was your length of stay. In either place, you roasted in fire like a marshmallow, but in purgatory you got out just in time to turn into a s’more. As I understand it, purgatory no longer involves roasting in fire. As it is currently described, purgatory is a way station where you spend time until your soul is cleansed. It’s sort of like a cosmic car wash where you don’t have to tip the guy at the end of the line. You can get out more quickly if your sur-

Prostate Health Assessment Event
continued from page 18
The Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson and Prostate Health International’s Gary Papa Run are offering free prostate screenings as part of a research program. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among men. Screening is important because prostate cancer shows no symptoms in its earliest stages.
Many organizations recommend prostate health assessment as part of men’s healthcare. Free screenings, including a blood test for prostate specific antigen (PSA), testosterone and cholesterol and a digital rectal exam, will take place at the following two locations: • Wednesday, September 18, 2013, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Kimmel Cancer Center – Bodine Building, 111 South 11th Street, Center City • Friday, September 27, 2013, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Jefferson at the Navy Yard – 3 Crescent Drive, Suite 100, South Philadelphia Registration is required. To register for your free screenings, or for more information, call 1-800-JEFF-NOW.

Eagle eyes With the NFL season kicking off tonight, it’s time to start pondering where is the best place to watch the Chip Kelly era unfold. Some will sit back in that comfy leather recliner Monday night when the Eagles open the season at FedExField while others will make the three-hour commute south on Interstate 95. For some, at least for eight weeks, the weekly tradition includes joining the crowd of 67,000-plus inside Lincoln Financial Field, 1020 Pattison Ave., but it’s a tough and expensive ticket. Sharing the neighborhood with the four local pro sports teams means the diehard fans looking to escape from the house for that three-plushour window have plenty of options to choose from, and they’re all a short drive
■ By Bill Gelman Review Editor
he 2012 Philadelphia Eagles are a closed chapter in the beloved franchise’s not-so-storied championship history. There were many weeks that fans either eliminated Bird watching from their regular routine or enjoyed an afternoon of channel surfing to the more exciting games. The got-to-do-a-betterjob excuse is no longer acceptable for local fans who are giving the home team a fresh start thanks to the new high-octane approach that coach Chip Kelly has introduced this preseason.

Carol’s Apple Cake
pple season is here! It may not generate the same level of excitement as the Philadelphia Eagles, but the colorful, fall fruit typically provides several days worth of satisfaction. Carol McGinness, of the 2100 block of South Hancock Street, extends the enjoyment factor by baking her Apple Cake. A trip to an area farm may produce a fun-filled afternoon, but a quick trip to the store will suffice. Once the senses start smelling this freshout-of-oven sensation, the excitement about apple season may quickly follow. SPR
ringeArts kicks off today, but those still hungry can join more than 75 Philly top chefs. Feastival, a FringeArts benefit at Pier 9, 121 N. Columbus Blvd., is taking place from 7 to 10 p.m. Sept. 12. Belle Cakery, Bistrot La Minette, Brauhaus Schmitz, Ela, Federal Donuts, Fond, Izumi, Le Virtu, Miss Rachel’s Pantry, Noord, Paradiso, Percy Street Barbecue, South Philadelphia Tap Room and Will BYOB are participanting. Tickets are $250, or $350 for VIP access. Visit phillyfeastival.com. SPR
5 to 6 apples, sliced thin 2 cups and 5 tablespoons of sugar 2 tablespoons of cinnamon 3 cups of ﬂour 2 teaspoons of baking powder 4 eggs 1/4 cup of orange juice 1 cup of oil 2 teaspoons of vanilla
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a tube pan with butter and ﬂour. Mix the apples, 5 tablespoons of the sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and set aside. Sift the ﬂour, remaining sugar and baking powder together in a separate bowl and set aside. In a third bowl, combine the eggs, juice, oil and vanilla. Add the wet mixture to the sifted ingredients and mix. Alternate the batter with the apples to ﬁll the pan. Bake for 75 minutes.

prepared with haricot vert, slightly al dente, with a scattering of toasted almonds and bathed in olive oil. The tomato was a bit soggy and there was much too much cheese and breadcrumbs and virtually no herbs were used during its preparation. Jerry’s Bar has a fine list of beers on tap and wines by the glass. Roses are very popular now and I enjoyed a glass of Columbelle ($7) from the Gascone region of France so much, I want to serve it at home. It imparted a dry, light crisp flavor with little sweetness. A glass of classic Vino Verde ($7) from Portugal, which makes for a fine light = Very Good

or 20 years, David Letterman has made us laugh when he or a guest recites the Top-10. Americans love lists and some of us cannot wait to read about “the best” new restaurant, bar, specialty store, etc. Last week, I came across a site proclaiming the 20 new restaurants we should be going to now. I clicked on it and the site mentioned a place called Jerry’s Bar. I had never heard of it. With a name like that, it could be anywhere in the city. I even wondered whether it was a full-scale establishment. Jerry’s Bar is located in Northern Liberties and it is, indeed, a restaurant. As soon as we walked in, I realized it could be a neighborhood place anywhere in the city. The bi-level restaurant has black wooden tables and chairs, a marble-topped bar, lots of brown wood trim, hanging lights and a modern chandelier. Edward and I sat at the bar and perused the menu. The bartender told us it opened in May. She gave us crisp linen napkins and table settings. I ordered a Negroni ($10.50) simply because I savored this cocktail last month at Paradiso. It is a mix of gin, sweet vermouth and Compari topped with an orange twist. Edward sipped a Bluecoat martini ($12) as we decided on appetizers. Meatballs ($8.50), bathed in a fresh, homemade tomato sauce, arrived in a small cast-iron skillet. They had a slightly creamy texture inside and although tasty, they could have been hotter. Toasted Italian bread was included for dipping. I cannot remember the last time I ordered chicken wings ($9), but wanted to
sample them at Jerry’s Bar. A pile of small, yet meaty wings were coated in a slightly spicy barbecue sauce that hit the spot. The requisite cool carrot and celery sticks along with a ramekin of homemade blue cheese dressing were included in the appetizer. Sandwiches and platters are on the bill of fare. I wanted to try the burger ($11) because I am still on a quest for a truly good one. Since last December, the burgers I have enjoyed were served at Devil’s Den and For Pete’s Sake. This one was seared and served medium-rare. A farmhouse cheddar was crumbled on top rather than sliced, so it did not melt at all. I also found the cheese to be salty. A slice of red ripe tomato and a thick leaf of cool, crisp Boston lettuce topped the burger. I also enjoyed the soft bun, which, thank goodness, did not impart any sweet taste. A mound of crisp fresh mixed greens, properly dressed, made me quite content. No bagged, soggy mesclun is served here. Edward loves fried fish so he ordered the haddock sandwich ($12) served on Texas toast. Although the fish was flavorful and not-at-all greasy, some tartar sauce would have played off nicely here. Since there is a choice of either salad or french fries, Edward went for the potatoes. They were too salty and could have been crisper. Both of us have been disappointed in the french fries we have tried in many restaurants throughout the city. I just may add them to my burger quest. From the side dishes, we selected green beans almandine ($6) and the stuffed tomato ($4). When was the last time you saw green beans topped with toasted slivered almonds on a menu? They were freshly

Bitar’s Lebanese Fattoush Salad
hen the Bitars came to Philly in 1972, the northeast part of what is now Passyunk Square
Chef Wilson Vazquez
Bitar’s Owners: Amin and Jude Bitar Opened 1974 947 Federal St. 215-755-1121 bitars.com
was predominately Lebanese and Syrian emigrants, so Amin Bitar’s family baked authentic Middle Eastern pita bread for friends and neighbors, but the demand quickly rose. “People would start placing side orders with my grandma and mom,” Bitar said. “Word starting getting out.” So the family opened a bakery at 10th and Annin streets in 1974, which moved to its current location at 947 Federal St. five years later. Almost 40 years later Bitar now runs the business that has evolved into a eatery/grocery store with younger brother Jude. “They did the hard work,” Bitar said of his parents. “They were selling food that people knew nothing about. I’m lucky to be able to ride on their coattails.” The siblings continue to sell family recipes, but has Americanized its menu since the ethnic makeup of the neighborhood has altered.
One dish that chef Wilson Vazquez cooks up from the Bitar recipe collection is Lebanese Fattoush Salad with Grilled Chicken. “Traditional fattoush is a vegetarian dish,” Bitar, a grad of the former Bishop Neumann High School, 2600 Moore St., who now resides in South Jersey, said. “You can alter it by throwing grilled chicken or kabobs in it.”
INGREDIENTS: 2 pitas, split 3 tablespoons and 1-1/2 teaspoons of olive oil 1-1/4 teaspoons of ground sumac 1/4 cup of lemon juice 3/4 teaspoon of salt 1/4 and 1/8 teaspoon of freshly ground pepper 1 large head of romaine lettuce, coarsely chopped 2 large tomatoes, diced 2 small salad cucumbers, or 1 large cucumber, seeded and diced
Staff Photos by Kathryn Poole
1/2 cup of red onion, thinly sliced 1/3 cup of fresh mint, thinly sliced 1-1/2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts
DIRECTIONS: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the pita rough-side up on a large baking sheet. Brush it with 1 tablespoon of oil and sprinkle it with 1 teaspoon of sumac. Bake until golden, about 15 minutes. Cool and break into bite-size pieces. Whisk the lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of pep-
per, 2 tablespoons of oil and 1/4 teaspoon of sumac in a large bowl. Add the lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, onion, mint and pita. Toss to coat. Let stand for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the grill to medium-high. Rub the chicken with 1-1/2 teaspoons of oil and season with 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/8 teaspoon of pepper. Grill, about 4 minutes per side (or broil chicken about 5 inches from the heat source for about 6 minutes per side). Thinly slice the chicken and serve on top of the salad.

As I am thinking happy thoughts of you.. you, my son, are thinking of me too. Loving memories fill my aching heart as dreaming of what could be or might have been if you were here. until the piercing pain of losing you comes tumbling down on trembling fear and clearly I hear you say. “But Mom and Dad... what if I had never been? You could not then in Love remember me.” Marc, we miss you more every day. Love Always, Dad, Mom , Jamie and your Baby Boy, Christian

Ram crackers A West Passyunk football team spoiled a new-look Lower Moyamensing squad’s opener.
PRO SPORTS at southphillyreview.com/blogs.php
■ By Joseph Myers R e v i e w S ta f f W r i t e r
Prep Charter’s Tarr Monway picked up 47 yards on 13 carries, with two of his touches resulting in scores for the victors. S ta f f P h o t o b y K at h r y n P o o l e
tempt, the Rams fell behind 20-0 when sophomore running back Samid Williams’ fumble wound up in the trusty hands of sophomore defensive back Qadir Strothers. The Huskies appeared to have another six when Dolo heaved a beautiful ball to senior wide receiver John Graham for a 31-yard gain, but the upperclassman fell just short of the plane. Regardless of the missed chance, the guests gladly entered halftime with pride in their precision. “I took this job knowing the team had an extreme amount of youthful talent,” firstyear Huskies’ coach David Hand, a longtime defensive assistant for St. Joe’s Prep, said. “We put in some changes that are all about putting great athletes in a position to win games.” As the Southern troops rested, Natale lamented blown opportunities and stressed to the charges, especially those who played for him at Bok, to tidy their approach. “They think they got you,” he said. “Pay attention, and prove them wrong.” EDITING THEIR SCRIPT yielded little change, as the Rams fumbled away the second-
half kickoff. They escaped harm on their first defensive stand, but Dolo ripped off a 38-yard run to put them close to the goal line again. With Hand’s system placing so much trust in him, the junior admitted he loves to look for Graham as often as possible and found his 6-foot-3 target for a 15yard strike to up the lead to 26-0. “I feel really good about the season because we’re hungry, and we know how to go after what we want,” Dolo said. “I think we showed today that we’re coming together quickly.” More athletic displays from the Southwest Philly resident brought the Huskies to the 1, where Monway converted a carry to cap their scoring. Facing the never-sought possibility of being a shutout victim, the Rams soon found a bit more space against Hand’s second-stringers and seemed to gain a sense of redemption when senior quarterback Ryan Stewart scored with 33 seconds left. A two-point conversion finished the day, with the teams meeting right after to share respectful sentiments. “Next time, you just have to do your jobs
better,” Natale said of his outgunned guys, who visit Spring-Ford tonight. “We gave away opportunities and this is what happens.” Set to play against Del-Val Saturday at Simon Gratz High School, Prep Charter felt very good about scoring an impressive win, especially because Southern features many old Bok Wildcats. “I saw them as Bok, and we owed them for a couple years now,” Graham, a Southwest Philly dweller, said of 42-15 and 32-0 losses to the defunct East Passyunk Crossing school in 2011. The agile receiver nabbed four of Dolo’s completions for 69 yards and shared with his coach a great sense of respect for the vanquished team. “I know they’re always well-coached, so we’ll definitely take a bunch from this,” Hand said. Webb will likewise gain lessons from the result. “Definitely not a good day,” the West Philadelphian said, “but we’ll be able to bounce back.” SPR Contact Staff Writer Joseph Myers at jmyers@ southphillyreview.com or ext. 124.

pon providing his nal bit of pregame advice Friday morning, football coach Frank “Roscoe” Natale reminded the South Philadelphia High School Rams, 2101 S. Broad St., to support one another so as not to give themselves two foes. Eager to notch a unique victory to kick off the season, his athletes displayed patchy unity in falling 32-8 to the Prep Charter Huskies, 1928 Point Breeze Ave., at the South Philadelphia super site, 10th and Bigler streets. Through cooperative sponsorships with Parkway Center City and Universal Audenried Charter High School, 3301 Tasker St., the Lower Moyamensing-based squad had already featured an integrated roster, with last week’s affair offering more novelty as Natale and other contributors joined the Rams’ ranks earlier this summer following the closing of Edward Bok Technical High School, formerly 1901 S. Ninth St. He and his performers welcomed their initial occasion to test their togetherness against a West Passyunk-situated unit also adjusting to changes. “It’s a nice mix of kids,” Natale, of the 1600 block of South Juniper Street, said. “They just have to learn. It takes time to get that momentum going.” The 2011 Public League Coach of the Year chose to gauge their tenacity by electing to kick off. Junior quarterback Vian Dolo, who guided the Huskies to a 7-5 mark last year, hit senior wide receiver Curran Simmons with a 41-yard pass on the first play from scrimmage and reveled two plays later when junior running back Tarr Monway broke free for a 9-yard score. Uneventful drives, especially for Southern, marked the rest of the quarter, but the visitors again gave the defenders fits with their first second-half possession, with Dolo and Monway activating their legs and moving the chains. Overseeing a no-huddle scheme, the signal caller tallied a 7-yard score that made the hosts, especially Mark Webb, miffed. “I like our identity,” the senior All-Publc offensive guard and defensive tackle said. “Our technique is there but our conditioning needs work, and I think the second quarter showed that.” With little wiggle room on their next at-
