Her daughter Carol McKenna and granddaughter Carol Kenney will show their devotion to her memory with their ninth appearance in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s Saturday. The event at Citizens Bank Park, 1 Citizens Bank Way, will look to raise funds to find treatment options for the estimated 5.4 million Americans who are battling Alzheimer’s disease, the most common neurodegenerative disorder.

any Americans will mark Sunday’s 10th anniversary of the 9/11 carnage with family gatherings, religious services and solemn observances. Donna Bachety last month chose art to evoke patriotism and to show respect for the 2,977 souls who died on account of four plane hijackings across three states,

with the two most documented takeovers leading to the destruction of the World Trade Center in New York City’s Lower Manhattan area. A native of nearby Long Island, N.Y., she called on color to counter catastrophe by having stained glass bearing the fateful digits installed in her home. “I had to have an external reminder yet something simple,” Bachety said from her residence on 11th and Dickinson streets.

She bought the spot in 2002 and adorned the living room with two encased Flags of Honor displaying the victims’ names. A need for renovations led her to commission a complement for the symbols. She enlisted Keith Loudenslager of Northeast Philadelphia’s Eagle Eye Painting and Home Remodeling to remove an air conditioner. See 9/11 page 14

“I think they’ll definitely have a good season, but the chemistry isn’t there. They’ll definitely make the playoffs hands down, but it’s basically, can they get over the hump they’ve had the past five to six years?� Jonathan Sheridan, 15th and Shunk streets

“They’re gonna lose because they always lose. My stepdad watches it. I don’t pay attention.� Carli Mastantuno, 11th and Wolf streets

To the Editor: As many of us begin to return to school, work and the busyness of our lives in the wake of Hurricane Irene, it’s important that we maintain the health of our lungs which can be at risk from floodwaters, debris, chemicals, mold and other remnants of this storm. We are all at risk, especially those suffering from asthma, COPD, emphysema or other forms of lung disease. In the cleanup, we should make use of these tips: Prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. Never use generators, power washers, grills, camp stoves or other gasoline, propane or charcoal-burning equipment indoors. Don’t heat your house with a gas oven. If your carbon monoxide detector sounds, leave the house immediately and call 911. Watch for symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning — If you or others in your house feel dizzy, lightheaded, or nauseated, get out of the house and seek medical help immediately. Clean up mold. Dry out the building as quickly as possible; open doors and windows. If water has been in the building longer than 24 to 48 hours or the mold is larger than 10-squarefeet, get professional help. Wear gloves, goggles and an N95 face mask to protect your eyes and throat while working on mold and toss mold damaged materials in a plastic bag to discard. Remove everything that has been soaked by water, including clothing, papers, furnishings, carpet, ceiling tiles and wallboard. Use soap and water to scrub mold off of hard surfaces, like tile and concrete. Prevent illness by washing your hands often, especially if you are living in crowded conditions or in contact with contaminated water. It is not unusual after a natural disaster for people to develop lung problems, even if they have never had them before. Some warning signs are: Coughing, especially coughing at night, wheezing or feeling short of breath, chest tightness or pain. Get emergency medical help if fingernails or lips are turning blue or if there is severe chest pain. Both could be life-threatening. More resources on protecting lung health from hurricanes and flooding can be found at lungusa.org. Deb Brown President & CEO American Lung Association of the Mid-Atlantic

Escaping disaster

To The Editor: I was a patient at Albert Einstein Hospital when I learned of the approaching Hurricane Irene. The news came to me via television after I felt the tremors from the earthquake. I can recall how I telephoned my daughter La Toya from my room, and how amazed we were as we experienced the earthquake simultaneously. I actually heard the tables and their contents shake as I spoke to my daughter. Jokingly she asked “are we having an earthquake?� Not fully grasping the seriousness of the situation, we continued our conversation until the quake ended. I was so happy that I had the opportunity to be connected with my daughter and granddaughter at that time. Before leaving the hospital, I told La Toya to call 311 and ask what we need to do in regards to the approaching hurricane. Having had major surgery on my back, my daughter and I believed that it would be best for me if we leave Philadelphia until the hur-

SEPTEMBER 8, 2011

Aug. 29 was given the fortunate task of piecing together a feature story on the 10-year anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. I hate the word anniversary when dealing with tragedy; the word conjures up images of celebratory events, but this event was anything but. Rather than debate terminology, my goal was to piece something together that would somehow honor the nearly 3,000 casualties from America’s darkest day. There was no way I could write an effective story on 9/11 without first reviewing the images, news clips and videos from that day. (I soon discovered the awful fact that only a little more than half of the bodies of victims at the World Trade Center were ever identified or recovered.) YouTube is a great resource when you want to

find any and all videos of 9/11 in a pinch, but watching the breadth of videos one after the other can leave curious viewers like me in a depressed state. The videos showed all angles in which the planes impacted the WTC towers; 911 phone calls to emergency dispatchers, including a screaming man in one of the buildings as it collapsed; WTC “jumpers”; newscasters trying to hold it together as the NYC skyline changed before their eyes and in front of terrified global audience. Overtime, I had to distance myself from the clips since I was getting emotionally ill and incredibly angered. I couldn’t help but ask a question I’ve asked time and time again: Why? Why do these awful things happen to people, whether it’s death or pain spurred by human hatred or natural occurrences? It might seem like an absurd question to some since I know it’s something that will likely remain unanswered no matter how hard I search for justification. ... SPR

eddy bears are among the toys set up outside the apartment in the Newbold/Point Breeze area where Savanna, 12, and Savann Mao. 8, were allegedly killed. The stuffed-animal memorial has been growing since the day after their deaths and even included photos of the siblings Sept. 1 — the same day their 27-year-old mother, Chanthy Mao, was charged with two Chanthy Mao counts of murder and one count of possession of an instrument of crime. Mao, also known as Sotheary Mao, is believed to have stabbed her daughter, Savanna, and son, Savann, multiple times in the chest inside their first-floor apartment on the 1700 block of South 18th Street Aug. 31, according to police. Police received a radio call for a person with a weapon and a disturbance at the location at 5 p.m., Chief Inspector Scott Small said at the crime scene. Police entered the dwelling 20 minutes later to find the siblings, who were pronounced dead at the scene. “What we’re finding is it may have happened sometime during the day, but it wasn’t discovered until the grandmother came home around 5 o’clock,” Sgt. Robert Kuhlmeier said Tuesday noting a kitchen knife was recovered, but that it had not yet been linked to the homicides. The incident is believed to have happened in the apartment’s middle bedroom that Mao shared with the two children. Mao’s parents stayed in the back bedroom while Mao’s husband only temporarily resided at the house as he was often away on business, Kuhlmeier said. The upper two floors were rented to other tenants. “The boy was on the bed,” Kuhlmeier said. “We assume he was sleeping or waking up from a nap. The girl was also in the bedroom. She was found on the floor next to the bed.” The children were still inside the home as of 8 p.m. Aug. 31, but police transported the mother to the Hospital of the

University of Pennsylvania to be checked out, Small said. “Based on her behavior, we believe she may be under the influence of something,” Small said noting she may have been unstable due to a narcotics or pill overdose. The woman supposedly told police that she was responsible for stabbing and killing her own children, Small said. “Her behavior was bizarre. Her behavior seemed to be a little unusual. … Not in a violent way,” Small said of how responding police described the woman. Police were not able to confirm her mental state during the crime as of press time. “We don’t know yet,” Kuhlmeier said. “That won’t be known until we subpoena records from the hospital.” Residents sat on their steps and gathered outside the yellow caution tape as police gathered evidence last week. William Bradshaw did not know the family, but saw them in passing previously. “I think that’s horrible,” the resident who lives across the street from the fatal incident said.” This is the first murder I ever heard of on this block. This has always been a nice neighborhood. Kids being murdered - that’s deep. “I [saw] the husband come home. He was crying.” Bruce Jennings, who lives a few doors up, wasn’t familiar with his neighbors either aside from seeing them walking to the store and Laundromat. He learned of the tragedy as he came home from work. “You don’t want to know what I think. I’m a father,” the dad of a 6- and 9-yearold said.


Police

Two burglars raided a LoMo home for drugs and money and later admitted to its occupants it had the wrong place. At 2 a.m. Aug. 31, two men — one of which was armed — forced their way inside a residence on the 800 block of Cantrell Street near Snyder Avenue and demanded drugs from the 23-year-old man and 49-yearold woman who were in the dwelling at the time, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The pair ransacked the house, acknowledged it was not the right location, but still took $400, a Mossberg shotgun, a debit card and a broken iPhone before fleeing in an unknown direction. The armed suspect was described as black with a medium complexion, age 23 to 24, 5-foot-9; having a beard; and wearing all dark-colored clothing. His accomplice was described as black with a dark complexion, in his mid-20s, 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-7; having a beard; and wearing a white T-shirt, jeans and a white thermal shirt around his face.

Witnesses scare robber

An attempted mugger dragged a woman along a Whitman street until a few onlookers chased him away Saturday morning. The 47-year-old woman was traveling along the 400 block of Shunk Street when the offender grabbed her from behind and pushed her down, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. He demanded her purse, but when she refused to release it, he lugged her along until a few passers-by chased him eastbound. The woman retained her pocketbook, but suffered cuts and bruises to her arms, Tolliver said. A medic transported her to Methodist Hospital where she was treated and released. The perpetrator was described as white, age 30 to 35, 6-foot, 200 pounds; having facial acne and slight facial hair; and wearing a white polo short and cutoff blue jean shorts.

SOUTH PHILLY REVIEW I

An armed man robbed a man in Center City before traveling south to rob another in Newbold 15 minutes later Sunday morning. The mugger was pedaling his black mountain bike on the 1500 bock of Lombard Street when he cut off a 28-year-old man at 6:35 a.m.; pointed a small, black revolver at him and said, “give me the phone,” Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The man handed over his iPhone 4. The offender fled in an unknown direction. At 6:50 a.m., the same offender followed a 24-year-old near 17th and Latona streets before approaching the man — who was talking on his black iPhone 3GS — and said “give me your phone” as he held him at gunpoint, Tolliver said. The man hesitated, so the perpetrator repeated his demand, Tolliver said. The man complied. The offender said, “you would get shot over a damn phone” and fled in an unknown direction. The offender was described as black, age 17 to 22, thin and wearing a white shirt, black jacket, dark blue or black jeans and sneakers.

A man was riding his red and black bike down the 1500 block of Marston Street near 28th Street when he struck a vehicle’s side mirror, which detached and fell to the ground at 9:14 p.m. Aug. 30, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The auto’s 23-year-old owner witnessed the attack and exchanged a few words with the man, who fled and later returned with a small, black gun. He then asked the woman and her friend of the same age what they wanted to do before fleeing south on Marston. The offender was described as black, age 23, 5-foot-8, thin; having short dreadlocks; and wearing a gray Nike T-shirt and black pants with a white strip up each side.

“The firemen don’t get recognition for anything,” she said. CURTIN HELD LAST year’s dinner Oct. 30 with about 75 firemen in attendance. Almost all of the victims of the fire came to the dinner and paid tribute by donating food. “I was thanked so much that I thought we have to do this again. I want to keep it as a tradition,” Curtin said. This year Fourth Street from Snyder Avenue to Jackson Street will be blocked off for the event. The night will feature music and food donated from local eateries such as Pat’s King of Steaks, 1237 E. Passyunk Ave., and Tony Luke’s Cheesesteaks, 39 E. Oregon Ave. “I wish that everyone out there was kind and not ignorant because if they were, the Center, 3601 S. Broad St. The first promises four tickets good through Oct. 30 and presents a chance to interact with the entire Sesame Street gang while the second features a pair of tickets to witness Grand Slam champions Andre Agassi, Jimmy Connors, Jim Courier and Pete Sampras compete.

whole world would be such a better place,” Curtin said referring to the good-hearted attitudes of her neighborhood firemen. Although last year’s dinner was for South Philadelphia firefighters, all firefighters across Philadelphia are welcome to attend this year’s event. The firefighters have shown gratitude for the recognition because their job proves dangerous everyday. With the addition of last year’s brown outs — the City’s measure to eliminate overtime by shutting down select stations periodically for either the 10hour day shift or the 14-hour night shift — the hazard of their job has only increased. “If you hired more people, there’d be less overtime,” Michael Conroy, sergeant of arms for Local 22, said. Brown outs have been in effect in Philathe respective contest. By entering, you agree to sign up for our newsletter and SPR Perks. The previous Sesame Place winners are not eligible for the current contest. Winners’ notifications will come via phone calls, and tickets will be available for pick up at the South Philly Review, 12th and Porter streets. SPR

ithout the firemen, we have nothing,” mayoral candidate Karen Brown and resident of Ninth and Mifflin streets, said sitting outside of the Engine 53. Less than a year ago, homes at Fourth and McKean streets — just a block from the firehouse — fought against the fiery rage of autumn flames. Firefighters from across Philadelphia will gather outside Engine 53, 414-16 Snyder Ave., to celebrate the second annual Fireman’s Appreciation Dinner noon to 8 p.m. Saturday. “Even if the firefighters are not on the clock, they’re out there helping,” Tina Curtin, the head coordinator of the event, said. The resident of Fourth and Jackson streets felt moved by the heroism and dedication exuded by the firefighters at about 5:30 a.m. Oct. 7 when a fire broke out in an apartment building on the 2000 block of South Fourth Street. “It was petrifying. The smell was so strong. You could actually taste it, and I live two blocks away,” she said of the blaze that took about two hours to get under control and relit itself at about 9 a.m. the same day. She recalled firefighters running down the street in an effort to save their neighbors. “These guys took it personal,” she said. Within two days, the neighborhood organized an Appreciation Fire Drop-off. The community gathered enough food, furniture and other household products for about 13 of the families affected. In the aftermath, Curtin felt obliged to show Engine 53 gratitude for their commitment to saving lives.

delphia since Aug. 2, 2010, and at Engine 53, occur every 12th night. On those nights, the firefighters are dispersed to other, random firehouses throughout Philadelphia ranging as far as Northeast Philadelphia. “It’s different than working with the guys you work with everyday. You’re not with your own guys, your brothers,” Chuck McQuilkin, the International Association of Fire Fighters Local 22’s battalion stewart, said. Engine 24, 1200 S. 20th St., and Engine 3, 200-10 Washington Ave., round out the trio of Engines affected in South Philly although they both cease operations during select day-shifts. “Anytime you have a station closed, you’re increasing the risk of something bad to happen … it allows for response time to go down,” Mark Squilla, a resident of Front Street and Snyder Avenue and City Council’s 1st District Democratic nominee, said. It varies each day and night which engine will be browned out. Six companies can be out of service in a 24-hour period. “It’s not safe for the people. We live in our own neighborhoods. We realize how unsafe they are. We don’t want brown outs,” Conroy said. Residents will honor that devotion Saturday. “To me and all of the Local 22 members, it’s rewarding to know the community is behind us and we appreciate that they recognize what we do for them,” McQuilkin said.

ELSIE’S PARADE continued from page 1 “She was strong, vibrant, frisky and fresh,” McKenna, of Front and Ritner streets, said of her mother, who fought her affliction for five years before succumbing Christmas Eve 2008. She and Kenney, of the 2300 block of South Lee Street, will lead the Elsie’s Parade team across the 3.1-mile course that involves canvassing the ballpark’s concourse and parking lot. Twenty-eight allies will join the two as they call on the trek as their primary coping activity. “This disease makes people mourn the loss of the loved one twice,” Kenney said. “First, with the diagnosis and second, with the death.” Rowan, who beat breast cancer in 1984, began to show mental weaknesses early last decade. McKenna returned to her childhood home, which has again become her abode, to tend to her in 2001, and doctors diagnosed Rowan two years later. “People told me I had to place her somewhere,” McKenna said, admitting reluctance to listen to suggestions. She yielded, placing her mother in St. Monica Manor, 2509 S. Fourth St. She and Kenney acted on immediate interests in advocating for more research into the malady, the nation’s sixth leading cause of death and the lone killer among the top 10 that doctors cannot prevent, cure or even slow, according to the Alzheimer’s Association. Kenney — the School District of Philadelphia’s director of employee health services and a proud supporter of the American Cancer Society and the National Organ Donor Association — and her mother first participated in the Walk to End Alzheim-

er’s, also known as the Memory Walk, in November ’03. Rowan accompanied them a couple times to Fairmount’s Memorial Hall though the family never explained her diagnosis to her. “We just wanted to try to maintain some normalcy for Gram,” Kenney said. The event moved to South Philadelphia in ’07, enabling McKenna and Kenney to mesh philanthropy and geography. Rowan adored the area and extolled the Mummers and the Phillies, especially first baseman and outfielder Von Hayes, who ended his nine-year stint here in 1991. “You could not say anything bad about South Philly or she would kill you,” Kenney, Rowan’s first granddaughter, said. Life at St. Monica Manor enabled Rowan to continue her love for the costumed heroes, as the Mummers Choir serenaded her each year, and the Quaker City String Band, 1943 S. Third St., helped her to celebrate her 85th birthday. She held such devotion to all of the performers that the garb of former Archbishop of Philadelphia Anthony Bevilacqua made her mistake him for a reveler upon a visit to the facility. McKenna and Kenney often brought Rowan to her former home to sustain familiarity with its contents but stopped as her disease progressed. “Alzheimer’s offers glimmers of hope,” Kenney said. “Sometimes Gram would say ‘I want to go home’ and would say her address. At other times, she appeared so disoriented. She was as tough as nails, though.”

ALZHEIMER’S TAKES ITS name from German neuropathologist and psychiatrist Alois Alzheimer, who first described the condition in 1906. Numerous symptoms, with the most prevalent being the inability to make new memories, mark one’s likely fast decline. Unpreventable, it has caused many physicians to suggest exercise, mental stimulation and sound diets as possible deterrents. Specialists tab those same steps as means to manage the progression, too. “Gram was an exception,” Kenney said of her g r a n d m o t h e r ’s falling prey to Alzheimer’s despite constantly keeping Carol McKenna, left, and Carol Kenney are nearing a decade an active mind. of advocating for more Alzheimer’s disease research. Their Rowan enjoyed eager feet are ready to cover a familiar course. bingo, crocheting, S ta f f P h o t o b y G r e g B e z a n i s crossword puzzles

and seek and find challenges. She labeled television “the idiot box” and watched only the news and “Wheel of Fortune,” where host Pat Sajak gave Hayes competition for her affection. Deaths from the ailment have risen 66 percent since 2000, according to the Alzheimer’s Association. A ’07 study by Maryland’s Johns Hopkins University predicts that 106 million people worldwide will have the sickness by 2050. A United Kingdom’s University of Cambridge piece the following year revealed a survival rate of fewer than five years for both genders. Rowan beat the rate by lasting more than five years, with cardiac arrest claiming her during her favorite time of year, the Christmas season. “Gram always said she wanted to die around Christmas time,” Kenney said, adding that she would brush off talks of mortality with the matriarch. Rowan desired to die during the holy period because she loved how the MurphyRuffenach Funeral Home, 2239 S. Third St., decorates its space. Kenney learned from management that it would use the Christmas theme no matter the date of Rowan’s passing as a sign of respect. “Each day since she left us, I have realized how lucky we are to have had her among us,” Kenney said. During her fight, Rowan, ever the nurturer, enjoyed holding a baby doll. The companion ended up in her coffin at Lansdowne’s Fernwood Cemetery. McKenna and Kenney have found their resolve has grown over the last three years and are ea-

ger to make their third jaunt in memory of Rowan after six in honor of her. “We enjoy helping the chapter,” McKenna said of their being heralds for the Alzheimer Association’s Delaware Valley Chapter, which has overseen the walk for 22 years. Saturday’s team will contain fewer members than previous years’ versions, but that is because Elsie’s Parade has had a few former representatives form their own groups. Kenney enjoys knowing so many acquaintances are eager to join the 11 a.m. celebration and eagerly awaits the chance to add to her team’s $20,000 haul and the Alzheimer’s Association’s $347 million tally. She is looking for more team members, with registration possible through visiting www.alz.org or contacting her at ckenney@phila.k12. pa.us. The day will bear added significance, as it would have been the 74th wedding anniversary for Rowan and Richard Rowan, who died in 1988. The walk had occurred only in November until recently, so Kenney does not mind the alteration, as it will give her even more moments to reflect on her grandmother’s legacy. “Gram was always active,” she said of her exploratory demeanor. “Saturday will be a way of gathering folks who know all the stories about her and who were fortunate to have received her influence.” SPR Contact Staff Writer Joseph Myers at jmyers@ southphillyreview.com or ext. 124.

are unfamiliar with many other items including vintage jewelry, old watches, coins, flatware, etc. they tend to offer very low prices because these items are not readily saleable for them. Our company has many specialized buyers for the various classifications of items that we purchase, therefore we can usually pay more. A Note Regarding the Up To Prices listed in this Ad The condition and rarity of an item determines its price. If an item is in excellent condition and very rare it might be worth the up to price, or even more. However, if an item is in poor condition, the value will be lower. For example, a 1927 S Quarter could be worth $7,000 in new condition or less than $20 in poor condition. The up to price reflects items of exceptional quality and rarity. Although it is unlikely you will have these items due to their extreme rarity, feel free to bring whatever items you may have and we will evaluate them free of charge.

9/11 continued from page 1

The extraction revealed collected water from the unit’s poor drainage had damaged the wall and its foundation. Instead of having the resultant hole covered, Bachety paradoxically let her hurt heal her. With Loudenslager handling the troubled area, Bachety approached Frank Sorrentino at South Philadelphia Stained Glass, 1605 E. Passyunk Ave., to fashion the 26-inch-by16-inch window. A former Marine, the businessman eagerly accepted the project. “I hope people will realize everybody should be patriotic,” he said of his creation, which features the numbers in red inside a blue and red oval and red and white stripes akin to the American ag’s. The glass appears nondescript during daylight, but dusk allows Bachety to illuminate it through the use of a light she inserts into a cubbyhole. Its presence has caused confusion among some short on knowledge of its meaning, but she has earned praise for honoring the memories of thousands and the pain of millions. “Many people have said it’s great and really nice,” Bachety said, directing a quick look at a 1980s poster of the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers. Like Sorrentino, she has no difculty with summoning her pride, admitting to a vedecade afnity for wearing red, white and blue shirts. Lucky, her eight-month-old female golden retriever, joined in lauding the country by donning a ag as a bandana. “I grew up learning to respect the land and those who defend it,” Bachety said. Having three family members among the protectors made her appreciation a given. Her father, Joseph Bachety Sr., served in the Korean War and worked for the New York City Police Department. Brother Joseph Jr. recently retired from the New York City Fire Department, and brother Michael is a New York City police detective. Her family’s existence, along with the nation’s, changed almost 10 years ago, when 19 members of the al-Qaida terrorist faction caused the New York crashes, a collision at The Pentagon in Arlington County, Va., and a wreck in Stonycreek Township near Shanksville. The Bachety brothers were among the rst responders to the New York City drama, with Michael learning of the attack through his sister. “He called me to see if someone was making a movie because he heard a plane had hit the North Tower,” Bachety said of informing him that American Airlines Flight 11, carrying 87 passengers, crashed into the site at 8:46 a.m. United Airlines Flight 175 and its 60 travelers struck the South Tower at 9:03 a.m., with the second structure collapsing 53 minutes later and its neighbor falling at

10:28 a.m. “I felt so brokenhearted,” Bachety said of the day and the subsequent weeks. Her brothers kept her from venturing to New York until Thanksgiving, with her excursion over the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge eliciting eerie feelings. “It was just odd not to see the towers,” she said, adding that Sunday’s opening of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum has lessened her unease. THE BACHETY BROTHERS lost a combined 366 colleagues, and their sister knew numerous victims. America responded to the suicide missions by invading Afghanistan, one of al-Qaida’s breeding grounds, Oct. 7, ’01. True to her nationalistic identity, Bachety offers her encouragement to our forces. “There is no way you cannot support our troops,” she said. She joked that those who have English, Irish or Italian ancestry usually become nuns, police ofcers or priests, but she chose banking. Regardless of vocations, she realizes heroes may take on any description and may reside anywhere. That late summer day 10 years ago brought on extreme calamity but also awesome acts of selessness. The combination of time and the powerful ability to reveal respect through creative works inspired Bachety to give her home’s passersby a vibrant view. “I never contemplated sealing the hole with brick,” she said of deciding on her custom order. Loudenslager, a Northeast resident, took 10 days to render the space for Sorrentino’s work. Fond of historic preservation, he engaged in a different form or prolonging the past with the project. “I had tears when I nished,” he said.

Stained glass, a constant in churches, can prove a powerful ally for light but can also mute it. The Sorrentino example has minimal power until Bachety lets a little lamp strengthen it at night. Its presence offers her consolation and Loudenslager reective moments. “It seems like everything happened yesterday,” he said. “People sometimes forget the real power of events unless they happen in their backyard.” “Which these attacks did,” Bachety added. The glass has an interior red trim and rests under a collage of patches from Michael Bachety with emblems of New York agencies that assisted in the nation’s immediate recovery. The long-term recuperation remains in progress. “I’ve accepted everything,” Donna Bachety said of her personal rehabilitation. “Some people, though, will probably take their pain with them when they die.” She credits the government for doing its best to prevent further attacks, though she confessed another assault could always occur. Because her rst home was the terrorists’ main target, Bachety knows it will receive tons of attention, but she desires everyone to receive equal regard. “We, as a whole, were victims, not just those who died,” she said. She has returned home numerous times but will not go to New York City Sunday. Instead she will watch news accounts and play patriotic music. “It is going to be a tough day,” she said, “but one on which we can show our strength.” SPR Contact Staff Writer Joseph Myers at jmyers@ southphillyreview.com or ext. 124.

unoco Inc. has announced its plans Monday to exit the refining business, which includes looking for buyers for its South Philly, 3144 W. Passyunk Ave., and Marcus Hook refineries. “We have made progress in increasing the efficiency of our refineries over the last several years, but given the unacceptable financial performance of these assets, it is clear that it is in the best interests of shareholders to exit this business and focus on our profitable retail and logistics businesses which have higher returns, growth potential, and provide steady, ratable cash flow,” Lynn L. Elsenhans, Sunoco’s chairman and CEO, said in a statement. However, if no one buys the refineries, Sunoco will idle the main processing units at both facilities by next July. “Selling the refineries is our preferred option,” Thomas Golembeski, the company’s spokeman, said. “We’re working really hard to find someone to buy them.”

Philly Live! status update

omcast-Spectacor, Cordish Co. and the City announced the status of the Philly Live! project during Tuesday afternoon’s press conference at the sports complex. Mayor Michael A. Nutter, Peter Luukko, president of Comcast-Spectacor, and Reed Cordish, vice president of the Cordish Companies, highlighted the ongoing construction of the entertainment, retail and dining development on the former site of the Spectrum. Employing 500 construction workers and creating 400 permanent positions, phase one of the endeavor is set to open in spring 2012 and make a $59.1 million impact on the region’s economy. The project expects to award about 25 percent of its construction business to minority contractors with half of the workers residing locally. Philly Live! also vowed to hire a workforce consisting of approximately 50 percent local residents, 30 percent minorities and 40 percent women. “Philly Live! will be the ultimate entertainment and dining district for families of all ages whether they are attending an event at the sports complex or just looking for a terrific dining experience,” Luukko said in a statement. “Philly Live! will energize the sports complex and create lasting jobs for the Greater Philadelphia Region.” SPR —Amanda L.

“I

The branch head at the South Philadelphia Branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia, 1700 S. Broad St., for three years eventually found out she had stage II breast cancer. After the diagnosis, she underwent chemotherapy, radiation and a mastectomy. “I lost my hair and [had] all those fun side effects. I looked horrible and felt horrible,” she said. “I found the Young Survival Coalition, for young survivors under 40. It was one of the most helpful things I had at the time. “I had a fiancé and he broke up with me shortly after diagnoses.” Part of the coalition, which Smith found online, was the fundraising event Tour de Pink, a more than 200mile biking journey through New Jersey that takes place over three days and ends on the Shore. Though she was aware she would be undergoing chemotherapy before 2010’s event, she felt she needed to sign up.

Cardella

By Tom Cardella Columnist

Commemorating 9/11

I

approach this column with much trepidation. There are certain subjects that are prone to misinterpretation, and 9/11 is one of them. On Sunday, it will be 10 years since the terrorist attack on Sept. 11, 2001. Television has addressed the terrible events of that day with numerous specials. Civic events held in remembrance have been ongoing for weeks. Anyone suggesting we approach the anniversary differently is susceptible to the charge of forgetting what happened on that fateful day, but it is time not only to commemorate its anniversary, but also get to heal our nation. I understand the slogan “Never Forget.” I don’t see any evidence that we have forgotten or will forget soon. We haven’t forgotten what happened Dec. 7, 1941 when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. Though there are Holocaust deniers, for the most part, we haven’t forgotten the Nazis’ extermination of six million Jews. The issue really isn’t about whether we ever will forget 9/11, but how we best honor the memory of those who died that day. In the 10 years since terrorists attacked the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon, we have killed Osama bin Laden and greatly weakened al-Qaida. There should be no minimizing these accomplishments. But we also have done some incredibly stupid things in the name of 9/11 such as invading Iraq, a country that had nothing to do with the attack on our country, and getting ourselves bogged down in the longest war in our history in Afghanistan, where we no longer are certain about accomplishing our goals or even what they are. An independent investigating committee last week estimated that the government wasted $60 billion of taxpayer’s money in these wars because of fraudulent and wasteful practices. If you consider the entire Iraq war may not have been necessary and the Afghanistan war has been unduly prolonged, that figure is much higher. More importantly, the toll in human life is the most tragic figure of all. We often celebrate how the 9/11 events brought us together as a country. Ultimately, those events have driven us apart. Despite President Bush’s and Obama’s pleas, there has been a tendency for Americans to blame on the entire Muslim community. The fact that American Muslims also died in the 9/11 attacks is often glossed over. The controversy over what type of memorial should be built at the site of the attack

was a disservice to those who died there. The same can be said for the furor over a Muslim community center being built a few blocks from Ground Zero in the shadow of seedy bars and abandoned buildings. In the heat of war, we often do horrible things. President Roosevelt interred innocent Japanese-Americans during World War II, disrupting their lives and confiscating their property. Germans who weren’t even alive during Hitler’s reign of terror were wrongly tarred with the same brush as Nazis and their sympathizers. But we eventually repaired those wrongs and all of us have moved on, while still taking care not to forget the events that triggered those feelings. It is time we do the same a decade after 9/11. No more torture. No more imprisonments without being charged with a crime. Whether these things ever had a legitimate purpose is a fit subject for disagreement, but there should be no disagreement about the need to end these practices today. Not today. Not in America. Understand the point of this column is not to assess blame. There is a time for partisanship, but this is not one of them. There is a time to look back, but there is also a time to look ahead. This is such a time. It is not enough to mourn our dead; we must honor them in a way that rights the wrongs of the past 10 years and ensures they don’t happen again. We are great at commemoration in this country, but not so great at introspection. We can’t allow the legacy of bin Laden to be that he won by splitting us apart, destroying our own traditions and ensuing generations of Americans remember 9/11 as the date in history that was the beginning of the end of our greatness as a nation. This is not a plea to paper over our political differences. We have some very real differences, but we have always been able to overcome those that act as obstacles toward moving forward as a nation. We did so after the nation was rent asunder by the Civil War; we did so after the unspeakable horrors of World War II and the ensuing witch hunt of the McCarthy era; we did so after Vietnam when violence flared on the campuses and the streets of America and our cities burned; and it is time that we begin to do so on 9/11’s 10th anniversary. No political party should claim patriotism as its own. The brave heroes of 9/11 who went into those burning buildings did not question whether they were trying to rescue the lives of Republicans or Democrats; Christians, Jews or Muslims; or thoseof a different color. We rid the world of bin Laden and we have al-Qaida on the run. Now it is time to bind our national wounds and figure out a way to get by this tragedy. In remembering 9/11, it is also time to remember who we are as a people. SPR Comment at www.southphillyreview.com/opinion/cardella.

Not so tough

Brendan Conlon (Joel Edgerton) is a family man and teacher who decides to enter the fight game to try and help his loved ones escape financial hardship.

R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer

T

he creaky sounds heard during the brawls in “Warrior” aren’t just the stretched tendons of prizefighters; they’re the brittle bones of the whole triumph-in-the-ring genre, which this mixedmartial-arts throwaway does virtually nothing to strengthen. Based, of course, on a true story, the Philadelphia-set film, a banal assemblage of the same old blue-collar tropes, presents itself as yet another ode to the financially battered, with one of its two fraternal lead characters literally fighting to save his family from foreclosure. But, make no mistake: “Warrior” has a whole different set of economic priorities, standing to make a buck as a piece of post-“Wrestler,” post-“Fighter” Hollywood copycatting. The family man is Brendan (Joel Edgerton), a struggling teacher who’s painted as an American hero for taking up fighting and “putting everything on the line” for his wife and kids when, in fact, he’s a contemptible fool with selfish, reckless pride, too stubborn to apply for bankruptcy or downgrade to a smaller house, but ready to ignore his wife’s pleading and pursue cash in one of the more irresponsible and dangerous ways imaginable. His brother is Tommy (Tom Hardy), a shady and beastly ex-Marine who, as every trailer has already revealed, is fated to square off against Brendan in the final rounds of a global tournament. If you can tolerate a constant exchange of growls and sunken-eyed stares, you’ll find richness in the scenes between Hardy, a devoted enigma, and Nick Nolte, who’s nakedly sensitive, Oscar-ready and gloriously typecast as the boys’ 1,000-dayssober dad. But the only true bit of narrative interest director and co-writer Gavin

O’Connor can muster is the slow unfolding of the brothers’ checkered pasts. Otherwise, he’s dishing out the tired usual: pundit commentary, transgressive approval from the less-masculine authority figure, and, of course, training montages. “Warrior” culminates as these movies do: with a rousing, near-death rumble that allows for years of baggage to be cathartically unloaded in the arena. However powerful, it’s distractive grandstanding, leaving you with a high so you’ll forget the preceding lows.

Warrior PG-13 One-and-a-half reels out of four In theaters tomorrow

Recommended Rental Meek’s Cutoff PG Available Tuesday A sparse and sprawling triumph of thoughtful minimalism, Kelly Reichardt’s “Meek’s Cutoff” fills its wide open spaces with a heady swirl of ideas and implications, be them about race, gender, politics, U.S. history, or things you can’t quite put a name on. Michelle Williams is superb as a lost pioneer, and Bruce Greenwood steals scenes as the title character, an ignorant guide whose Oregon Trail offshoot leads to a literal and figurative wilderness.

a Phanatic good time ANNUAL FASHION SHOW SCORES HOME RUN FOR NEW ONCOLOGy INFUSION CENTER The sellout crowd converged on the Phillies’ turf at Citizens Bank Park for an afternoon of cocktails, lunch and beautifully crafted creations that strutted down the catwalk.

Giving to help others, to help the community, is one of South Philadelphia’s most respected traditions.

www.MethodistHospitalFdn.org/2010.

And, with more than 15 incredible gift baskets created by various hospital departments and community sponsors, the chances to win one were moving quicker than a Roy Halladay fastball.

S O U T h p h illyreview . c o m 2 5

The day wasn’t all about the boys of summer and the fashions of fall. Foundation Board member, George E. Deming, III accepted the Scott Stewart Founder’s Award for his long-standing commitment to Methodist Hospital from James E. Robinson, President of the Foundation and Chief Administrative Officer for Methodist Hospital.

The South Philly Review and its publisher, longtime friend John Gallo, again served as the exclusive media sponsor. For more information regarding our generous sponsors, please visit

SEPTEMBER 8, 2011

The Fashion Show began with a spectacular Salsa performance from Methodist’s Dr. William Short and his professional dance partner. Then it was time for the 16 volunteer models from Methodist Hospital staff and SS. John Neumann and Maria Goretti Catholic High School students to take to the runway in dazzling looks from a plethora of South Philadelphia shops.

Major sponsors IBEW Local Union 98 and W.H. Myers Construction stepped up to the plate, helping raise in excess of $49,000. A portion of the afternoon’s proceeds funded a Hair Restoration Program that will provide cancer patients with custom-fitted wigs. (story next page:Through the looking glass)

SOUTh PHILLY REVIEW I

easy to hit one out of the park when fashion, food and fun are part of the game. What took the Methodist Hospital Foundation’s Home Run for Fashion from the minors to the majors was its support for the new Oncology Infusion Center and the more than 300 people in attendance that made it a big-league blowout.

THE LOCAL GANG’S offense averaged 27.4 points and 389.4 yards last year, totals that put it in third and second, respectively, among the 32 teams. Its running attack topped the charts with a 5.4-yards-percarry mark. Quarterback Michael Vick, who in his third year with the Birds will be the chief signal caller, aided the average with his scampers. Running back Ronnie Brown, 29, jettisoned the Miami Dolphins last month after six seasons to give Vick’s legs a rest. A Pro Bowler in ’08, he settled on a oneyear, $1 million offer to add to his 4,815 yards rushing yards and 36 rushing touchdowns. With 184 receptions, he will also present challenges for linebackers and defensive backs. Brown will need help from Evan Mathis, another 29-year-old, to annoy opponents. Mathis escaped the woeful Cincinnati Bengals this summer to sign a one-year, $735,000 deal. The price seems low considering the left guard surrendered no sacks the last two years and his new team allowed 49, the league’s fourthhighest number. Mathis may mentor rst-round draft pick Danny Watkins from Baylor University. A right guard, the rookie earned First Team All-Big 12 distinction last year, and his 26-year-old frame will look to justify his four-year, $7.9 million contract with consistent blocking. If Vick falters, 28-year-old quarterback Vince Young will propel the pigskin. A two-time Pro Bowler and the league’s Offensive Rookie of the Year in ’06, he parted with the Titans this summer. His one-year, $4 million deal will have fans hoping he can be a competent backup and emergency replacement. Their 79th season begins Sunday, and the Birds certainly want a triumphant end 116 days later. With so much newness, maybe their forlorn fans will nally frolic. SPR

out the qualied quintet of defensive dynamos. The 25-year-old arrived from the Arizona Cardinals via a trade for quarterback Kevin Kolb. In three years with the NFC West unit, he earned a Pro Bowl selection and snared 13 interceptions, including four in ’08 when he helped to secure a Super Bowl appearance. He will earn $16 million from a six-year pact.

SOUTh PHILLY REVIEW I

their squad has become many prognosticators’ darlings by nabbing accomplished free agents, trading for a stellar cornerback and drafting a promising offensive lineman. Last year’s NFC East Champions, the Eagles nished 12th in the league with 327.2 yards allowed per game, landed in 10th place with 39 sacks and claimed the third spot with 23 interceptions. Firstyear defensive coordinator Juan Castillo will look to ve acquisitions to better those gures. The top free agent, Nnamdi Asomugha left the wretched Oakland Raiders, signing a ve-year contract worth $60 million. A four-time Pro Bowler and All-Pro, the 30-yearold spent eight seasons with the AFC West team and owns 11 interceptions, with eight coming in his brilliant 2006 campaign. His rst name means “My father is alive.” His new supporters surely hope his reputation will prove as vivacious. Jason Babin returns after a year with the Te n n e s s e s e Titans, with whom he set a career high with 12.5 sacks. At 31, the defensive end showed he wants to end his playing days as a Bird, as he inked a ve-year deal for $28 million. Defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins has already experienced a fruitful February, as he helped the Green Bay Packers to win this year’s title. A 30-year-old 300-pounder, he brought his 29 career sacks to South Philadelphia by agreeing to a ve-year, $25 million contract. Twenty-six-year-old safety Jarrod Page has tallied one more interception than Asumugha and will team with the Nigerian to thwart receivers’ routes. A former New England Patriot, he entered the ock last month by placing his John Hancock on a one-year agreement for $735,000. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie rounds

1. The winner of colTom Cardella lege football’s national championship game will have its title vacated the following year because of NCAA violations. 2. It will be revealed that the winner of the 2011 Heisman Trophy will have made more money playing collegiate football than Winston Justice playing for the Eagles. 3. After Penn State beats Temple for the 1,000th straight time, someone in Navy and White will holler “We are Penn State.” I, in turn, will shout “F-you.” 5. Notre Dame will be picked in preseason polls to finish in the top-20. Notre Dame will finish 6-6. 6. There will be 10 new bowl games designated by the NCAA, one of which will bear the name of a local exterminator. 7. Boise State will go undefeated and not receive one first-place vote. 8. There will be a controversy over which team should be ranked No. 1 at the end of the season. 9. The NCAA will reject going to a playoff system. 10. At the end of the 2011 season, every major college football team will switch conferences.

of Reid after every loss. 4. Mike Missanelli will take an innocuous quote from Donovan McNabb and turn it into a week of sports talk. 5. DeSean Jackson will not catch a pass in the season opener and fans will question whether his lack of a contract is affecting his play. 6. Jackson will catch a 72-yard touchdown in the second game of the season and return a punt 89 yards. He will get hurt in the third game of the season and fans will question whether he is durable enough to sign to a long-term deal. 7. The Eagles will sign Jackson to a long-term deal during the bye week. 8. There will be a surprise team in the NFL that finished last in 2010 and makes the playoffs as a wild card this season. Last year’s surprise team will revert back to its status as a last-place loser. The reason for both occurrences will mainly be the difference in strength of schedule. 9. Brett Favre will become the latest poor ex-athlete network analyst. 10. Everyone on the panel of the Fox “Pregame Show” will laugh uproariously at something unintelligible uttered by Terry Bradshaw. 11. There will be exactly four kickoffs returned in the entire NFL season, all after onside kickoffs. The rule will be changed next season. 12. Someone from the Cincinnati Bengals will be arrested on odd numbered weeks of the season. Someone from the Oakland Raiders will be arrested on even numbered weeks of the season. 13. On “Sports Final,” Howard Eskin will defend Reid’s decision to pass three straight downs from the half-foot line in losing to the Giants. John Clark will get frustrated. 14. By the halfway mark of the season, Vick will be playing with a flak jacket and an ankle boot. 15. At the same time, Vince Young will complain about lack of playing time. 16. After Todd Herremanns is injured and four other backups fail to protect Vick’s blind side, Howard Mudd decides to make a comeback as a player. 17. Someone in South Philly will lose a year’s worth of wages betting football the first weekend of the season and try to win

Eagles Season Kickoff

The new season

Word on the Street continued from page 4

How do you think the Eagles will fare this season? “I say they’re going to go to the Super Bowl. I’m hoping. I remember when they went in 1980-’81. I was at the playoffs when they went that year.” Marc Mucci, 11th and Porter streets

“I think we’re going to the Super Bowl. I’m biased though. I bleed green. I think it’s about our time.” Craig Gaskin, 17th and Tasker streets

“They’re gonna lose because they never win. My dad watches them every Sunday. I text while he watches it.” Brittany Maxfield, 20th and Jackson streets

“I hope they make it to the Super Bowl because they have [Michael] Vick and everybody on the team, and it looks good for us this year.” Terrell Walker, 16th and Dickinson streets Comment at www.southphillyreview.com/ opinion/word-on-the-street.

it back by doubling his bet on the Monday Night game. 18. Jon Gruden will be rumored leaving the TV booth to return to coaching. Gruden will not leave, but instead spend each week, during his game analysis, trying to find synonyms for the same superlative. 19. At least half of the TV analysts will suggest eliminating the kickoff and recommend placing the ball on the 20-yard line. The really creative analysts will also suggest eliminating the extra point. 20. Alex Henery will miss a field goal and all of us will get overly nostalgic for David Akers, who will miss a few of his own. No one will get nostalgic for Sav Rocca. 21. If Mike Kafka gets to play, some sportswriter will show off his or her literacy by making comparisons to Franz Kafka. 22. The Detroit Lions will lose on Thanksgiving Day. 23. Tony Dungy will act as a mentor

for Plaxico Burress. Plaxico will say he doesn’t need prayers or counseling, just better aim. 24. A member of the media will lapse into a coma during an Andy Reid media conference and become the first person in the history of civilization to literally be bored to death. 25. The Eagles will make the playoffs, but lose to a team over which they are favored. Jeffrey Lurie will reaffirm his support for Andy. Andy will say, “I should have put the players in a better position to succeed.” Andy Reid will, as F. Scott Fitzgerald once wrote, “... drift on forever seeking, a little wistfully, for the dramatic turbulence of some irrecoverable football game.” In this case, that game is the elusive Super Bowl. And with Reid, it seems that we are all fated to seek that sparkling ring a little wistfully forever. SPR

I

fear I am becoming sick. Prior posts have revealed that the Eagles delight me like nude beaches thrill eunuchs, so my positive views on their prospects must indicate delirium. I have followed the Birds for 22 of my 32 years, meaning 69 percent of my life has gone to trying to decipher how they consistently lure folks into believing they will raise the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Maybe I am still radiating the glow of new fatherhood, as I feel the need to dispense with complete negativity when pondering this year’s squad. I saw not one snap of the preseason, but its games usually yield as much as President Obama’s State of the Union addresses. Sixteen authentic chances to impress await, and I see victories in 14 of those contests. Yes, 14 wins! That total would set a franchise record and would certainly guarantee home field advantage in the playoffs. I became incredulous when a look at their the new

siena collection

schedule led me to predict nine-straight triumphs to begin the season. Please note they won 10 last year, so I must be suffering from an affliction that has yet to reveal its devastating aims. The Eagles should be undefeated when they head to MetLife Stadium Nov. 20. I know all about their mastery of the New York Giants and expect for them to wallop their NFC East colleagues Sept. 25 at Lincoln Financial Field. I see Eli Manning and his boys exacting revenge and pulling to within two games in the division with a close win. Call me whatever you wish, for I like the New England Patriots and expect Tom Brady to remind Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie that his right arm possesses more ability than their feet. Plus, his appendage often interlocks with Gisele Bündchen’s left arm, so take that, new guys! … SPR Joe Myers is South Philly’s Pro Sports voice of the Phillies, Eagles, Sixers and Flyers.

Through the looking glass METHODIST HOSPITAL FOUNDATION’S HAIR RESTORATION PROGRAM PROVIDES CANCER PATIENTS WITH CUSTOM-FITTED WIGS ethodist Hospital’s newest addition starts right at the top. Through the Hair Restoration Program at the Kimmel Cancer Center Infusion Center, located on the Methodist campus, those dealing with chemotherapy and the inevitable hair loss are provided wigs with no out-of-pocket costs. “It reduces anxiety during one of the most stressful times in life,” Methodist Hospital Foundation Vice President Diane Pirollo said. “you want to look like yourself and this keeps a measure of control.”

Partnering with the nonprofit Cancer Foundation for Personal Appearance and its founder/ director Joseph Minniti, the program helps any age, gender, ethnicity and religious persuasion. Those participating are provided a customfitted, very fine acrylic wig that can stand up to heat and styling products and an onsite consultation with Minniti, as well as ongoing support. There also are takeaways to make life a bit easier at home, such as a sleeping cap, brush, comb, mannequin head to store the wig and, most importantly, a timeline describing what will happen and when during and after treatment. Last fall’s Home Run for Fashion raised the $25,000 needed to start up the program.

Last fall’s Home Run for Fashion raised the $25,000 needed to make the program a reality.

Methodist’s specially trained staff begins the process by approaching patients about the program. Once onboard, Minniti, who has created thousands of wigs in his 42-year career, meets with each person to take measurements and a hair sample to ensure his creation will match their everyday look — and make them smile again. “I want those dimples to show,” he said, “and that’s from the heart.”

That drive to become a registered nurse is just one characteristic of the Anne C. Rogan Memorial Nursing Scholarship’s initial recipient Alicia Piacentino. Established with $10,000 through donations and fund-raising, the $1,000 award will be presented each June to a student who has been accepted into an accredited nursing program, displays financial need, as well academic accomplishment, and write an essay on why they are choosing this profession. Applicants must be dependents of employees who have been with Methodist at least three years.

To make a donation to the Fund or for a 2012 nursing scholarship application, contact DPirollo@MethodistHospitalFdn.org or 215.952.9006

name Anne C. Rogan conjures up certain thoughts, including compassion, determination and a love of nursing. “She was so committed to making a difference she went to nursing school at night even while she was going through chemotherapy,” Methodist Hospital Foundation Vice President Diane Pirollo said of the 20-year Methodist Hospital employee who died of cancer in 2008.

“I wanted it to be more than furniture in a room. I wanted it to be about the patient, not just a bricks-and-mortar thing,” Pirollo said. “This takes the whole person into account, not just the physical, but the emotional.” Minniti agrees, adding the new look that really is designed to

keep a person’s existing look intact “keeps them empowered.”

WITH ALL THEIR

HEART

The Methodist Hospital Foundation’s Fundraiser South Philly Fashion goes High Society will benefit the nationally certified Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation program Life is different after a person is diagnosed with a heart condition. Habits suddenly need to change, but it can be a difficult journey without support and guidance.

The Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation program at Jefferson’s Methodist Hospital has been critical to long-term wellness. Heading into its 30th year, the program is growing with patients learning proper nutrition, smoking cessation techniques, better stress management and individualized exercise routines. The Methodist Hospital Foundation recognized the need for additional equipment, as well as a larger space, and proceeds from its upcoming Fundraiser, “South Philly Fashion goes High Society”, have been earmarked for this purpose. “Recent changes in the direction of Jefferson University Hospitals/Methodist Division Cardiac Rehabilitation, along with modern healthcare’s focus toward prevention of heart disease, have placed more emphasis on a program such as ours,” the program’s Medical Director, David M. Shipon, MD, FACC, said. Dr. Shipon, a practicing non-invasive cardiologist, specializes in the prevention of heart disease. “The Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation program is the only monitored cardiovascular wellness program of its kind in the Philadelphia region, but the compensation from government agencies and insurance companies is not nearly enough to support our growth.”

Funds from South Philly Fashion goes High Society will go to growing the program and expanding the facility, as well as adding and upgrading exercise equipment. “South Philly Fashion goes High Society” will offer cocktails, luncheon and runway looks from 12 to 3 p.m. Sunday, October 30, at the Sheraton Society Hill Hotel. In addition to the Fashion Show and luncheon, guests will have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets for unique gift baskets, place bids at a silent auction featuring sports memorabilia such as a Phillie’s World Series baseball signed by Charlie Manuel, and more. Methodist employees may call 215.952.9003 for discounted tickets. “The Foundation will help us improve the program for not only patients with heart disease, but community members who also want to facilitate positive behavioral changes. This program extends the care provided by a patient’s primary team by encouraging adherence to their recommendations for lifestyle changes and medications,” Dr. Shipon said. “Through the Outpatient Cardiac

Rehabilitation program, we will promote the benefits of cardiovascular wellness in an effort to make South Philadelphia one of the heart-healthiest communities in the city.”

ho says eggs are purely for breakfast? A German concoction, which was later popularized in France, quiche is versatile as it can be served for any meal and even a tasty snack. Aida Kearns’ Spinach or Broccoli Quiche, is one of many varieties of the tasty delicacy. The resident of the 2700 block of South 17th Street allows you to decide between the two vegetables or maybe whip in a little of each for an even greener dish.

made me want to weep. There was about four ounces of overcooked, underseasoned halibut on the plate. I love sea beans, also known as glass worts, but, alas, there were just three small slender ones included in this dish. We did not think the artichokes with the oxtail was a fine match in this dish. Christopher discovered a squiggle of basil oil under the fish only after we ate it. Dessert was the only star of the evening. It was a blueberry gateau ($8) but it was not a cake. It consisted of a thin buttery shortbread cookie topped with a citrus chibouste, fresh fragrant blueberries and a small dollop of créme fraiche ice cream. Coffee and tea are $4 each. Service was amateur and chatty. The original chef left sometime in late July, so I called the restaurant to discover

the name of the executive chef. I was told I had to speak with the owner to get the name of the one in charge. I left my name and telephone number but the call was never returned. One-and-a-half tips of the toque to Talula’s Garden. SPR

or blood orange juice — anything that would give the fish a much-needed kick. The protein portion was tiny, the tomatoes tasted of summer but the dish lacked heat from hot paprika. The baguette croutons were perfect, however. I wanted a glass of red wine to enhance the muscovy duck I ordered for dinner. I ordered a glass of Côtes du Rhône ($13). The dinner then went south. Talula’s Garden’s runners never knew who ordered which dish. When a woman brought out each dish, she rattled off each ingredient on each plate. This is truly unprofessional and extremely annoying. This is a posh, fairly expensive place so I kindly told her to place our entrées on the table and leave us to our conversation. Muscovy duck breast and foie gras with confit of leg parcel, beet greens and smoked beets ($28) was underwhelming and pitifully tiny. I still need to forage for a small microscope. “The breast of duck is dry and I would describe it as the size of an obese quail egg,” Christopher said. I adore foie gras and the amount on the plate was about the size of a fat garlic clove. All I got was a sliver so Christopher moseyed his fork around to find a hidden bit. “The confit is poorly executed,” my friend said. “It tastes like leftover pulled pork from a barbecue.” I took a bite and agreed with him. I could not have described this lame excuse for duck confit any better. Marinated halibut with oxtail stuffed vegetables, sea beans and saffron ($28)

SOUTh PHILLY REVIEW I

espite Craig LaBan’s recent lukewarm review, people are flocking to Talula’s Garden like gaggles of Canadian geese. On my visit, the garden and dining rooms were filled with wellheeled middle-aged and older Center City couples as well as men and women in their late 30s to early 40s and a few business people who came in for a drink. I invited my friend chef Christopher Thames to dine with me at the muchhyped Talula’s Garden, which is owned by Aimee Oxely and business partner Stephen Starr. The dining room is awash in soothing warm colors. I sat on a comfortable banquette. Our waitress poured Schuylkill punch into small dark glass tumblers, and I ordered a Rob Roy ($12.50), which was nicely mixed and served in a pretty cocktail glass. Christopher wanted iced tea but the only kind served is a sweetened green tea. House-smoked sturgeon rillette with mustard toast, crème fraiche and a petit herb salad ($12) should have taken me to my childhood when Jewish delis sliced to order smoked sturgeon, but this version was done as a rillette. The only type I’ve eaten was made with pork. Still, this was a good dish. “It is the type of dish you would find in any Paris bistro prepared by the hands of a commis,” Christopher said. Our next appetizer did not fare as well. Chilled peekytoe crab and Maine lobster salad with tomatoes and hot paprika screamed for salt and acid. Seafood requires some kind of acid be it lemon, lime

As summer winds A i d d down, many ffruits itt will ill go outt off season, but the apple’s time of year is now in full effect. Pick your favorite variety to feature in these apple-inspired creations. By Phyllis Stein-Novack Food Columnist

A

pple season is here and I’ve been looking through my cookbooks for ideas and inspiration. I love a good tart apple. There are so many varieties in supermarkets, farmers markets, farm stands and specialty grocery stores that I find it fun to mix and match. Although Washington state is famous for its red delicious apple, Pennsylvania grows an array of them for us to simply eat out of hand, make applesauce or add to a salad or entrée. The desserts can be simple or elaborate. It is not autumn or Thanksgiving time without apple pie with a heaping scoop of ice cream. Some apples are slated for cooking rather than eating raw. I do not care for a sliced Granny Smith apple but I like to cook with it. My favorites are Royal Gala, Fuji, Braeburns, Rome Beauty, Jonathans, Jonagolds and Honeycrisp, which have gained in popularity within the past few years. When buying apples, let your eyes and nose be your guides. They should have a smooth skin with no blemishes. Smell them. Fresh apples have a lovely distinctive aroma. Place them in a pretty bowl or basket and keep it on the kitchen counter or table. After a few days, you can store them in the vegetable crisper of your refrigerator. While making potato latkes with chef Christopher Thames last December, he picked up my European wooden salt box and sprinkled some kosher salt on top of

the applesauce. Salt brings out the sweetness of apples, he said. He also sliced a few apples and I sampled them sprinkled with salt as well. “Delicious,” I said. “I’ll enjoy apples this way from now on.”

■ Roasted Chicken Thighs ■ with Apple, Gin and Coriander Seeds From “In the Kitchen with a Good Appetite” by Melissa Clark. Ingredients: 1 large or 2 small apples 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into one-inch strips 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil 1 tablespoon of dry vermouth 1-1/2 teaspoons of gin 2 tablespoons of fresh cilantro, dill or parsley, chopped 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 teaspoon of whole coriander seeds 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt 1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper Crusty bread or rice, for serving

Directions: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Core the apples and slice as thinly as you can without getting out (or buying) a mandoline (between 1/8- and 1/4-inch thick is fine). In a 9-by-13-inch pan, toss all of the ingredients together except for 1 tablespoon of cilantro (or dill or parsley). Spread the ingredients out into one layer in the pan. Roast for about 20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the apples are softened. Garnish with the remaining cilantro, dill or parsley. The sauce will be thin, so serve with a crusty bread for sopping up the sauce or over rice. Serves two to three. Note from Phyllis: This is a great company dish for a casual dinner party. The recipe can be easily doubled.

■ Lancaster Apple Butter ■ From “U.S.A. Cookbook” by Sheila Lukins Ingredients:

6 pounds of meaty apples such as McIntosh or Rome Beauty, peeled, cored and

quartered

1 cup of apple cider 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon 1/4 cup of cider vinegar 2 cups of packed dark brown sugar

Directions: Place the apples in a heavy ovenproof pot, add the cider and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover and cook about 30 minutes, or until the apples are soft. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Press the apples, along with any liquid, through a strainer and into a bowl. Return the mixture to the pot and add the cinnamon, vinegar and sugar. Bake, uncovered, for three hours, stirring occasionally. Cool to room temperature and refrigerate, covered, for up to three weeks. Makes about five cups. Note from Phyllis: A jar of homemade apple butter prepared with Lancaster County apples makes a thoughtful hostess gift.

■ Sautéed Apples ■ Ingredients:

3 tablespoons of unsalted butter 6 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into one-inch chunks or thinly sliced 2 tablespoons of brown sugar 1 teaspoon of cinnamon

Directions: Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the apples and sprinkle with the sugar and cinnamon. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. Serves four. Note from Phyllis: Sautéed apples are a tasty side dish with pork. SPR Comment at www.southphillyreview.com/food-anddrink/features.

Horoscopes

By Mystic Terry Psychic Reader

VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22): Have fun and do s not take anything too seriously. A carefree and flirtatious manner may create a rift with a close friend. This

person may be jealous of attention given to others. Lucky number: 115. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22): A get-together with family may become tense. A heated outburst may put a damper on the occasion. An issue involving work may be creating a conflict. Lucky number: 905. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21): Roam the neighborhood for excitement. People caught up in work won’t be available for chitchat. Focus on a new subject. Lucky number: 621. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21): There could be trouble with a partner. Shared money may seem like a good source for spending, but using joint resources for a personal shopping spree creates a rift. Lucky number: 726. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19): A giving nature may be taken advantage of by a romantic partner. Be wary of being too accommodating. Be assertive if a lover tries to cross boundaries. Lucky number: 343. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18): Feelings may be put aside while caring for a loved one. Embracing the self-sacrifice this involves makes for a smooth transition. Be on guard for feelings of resentment. Lucky number: 899. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20): Expressing feelings may backfire. If effusive with views, your standing may be lessened in the eyes of authority figures. Try to save the speech for a close friend. Lucky number: 563. ARIES (March 21 to April 20): Find time to focus on internal issues to get to a centered place. Job responsibilities interrupt solitude. Expect to be called upon to train someone. Lucky number: 713. TAURUS (April 21 to May 20): An invitation to an unconventional event comes up. Mocking what is observed may embarrass a date. Use an outing to expand experiences. Lucky number: 738. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20): Money may come in and then, just as quickly, go out. Prepare for a financial windfall involving another person. The danger is indulging in impulsive purchases based on emotions. Lucky number: 802. CANCER (June 21 to July 22): Love may be grand as long as it doesn’t become too demanding. A heightened sensitivity may make a partner feel close. Make sure unrealistic expectations don’t push away a lover. Lucky number: 368. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22): There is temptation to withdraw rather than face stress in a romantic relationship. It’s normal for partnerships to go through readjustment periods. Talk about what each person expects. Lucky number: 129. SPR To inquire about a personal reading, call Mystic Terry at 215-467-5162.

Annual Public Notice of Special Education Services and Programs, Services for Gifted Students, and Services for Protected Handicapped Students Notice to Parents According to state and federal special education regulations, annual public notice to parents of children who reside within a school district is required regarding child find responsibilities. School districts, intermediate units and charter schools are required to conduct child find activities for children who may be eligible for services via Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. For additional information related to Section 504/Chapter 15 services, the parent may refer to Section 504, Chapter 15, and the Basic Education Circular entitled Implementation of Chapter 15. Also, school districts are required to conduct child find activities for children who may be eligible for gifted services via 22 Pa Code Chapter 16. For additional information regarding gifted services, the parent may refer to 22 PA Code Chapter 16. If a student is both gifted and eligible for Special Education, the procedures in IDEA and Chapter 14 shall take precedence. This notice shall inform parents throughout the school district, intermediate unit, and charter school of the child identification activities and of the procedures followed to ensure confidentiality of information pertaining to students with disabilities or eligible young children. In addition to this public notice, each school district, intermediate unit, and charter school shall publish written information in the handbook and on the web site. Children ages three through twenty one can be eligible for special education programs and services. If parents believe that the child may be eligible for special education, the parent should contact the appropriate Regional Office or Charter School Principal identified at the end of this public notice. Children age three through the age of admission to first grade are also eligible if they have developmental delays and, as a result, need Special Education and related services. Developmental delay is defined as a child who is less than the age of beginners and at least 3 years of age and is considered to have a developmental delay when one of the following exists: (i) The child’s score, on a developmental assessment device, on an assessment instrument which yields a score in months, indicates that the child is delayed by 25% of the child’s chronological age in one or more developmental areas. (ii) The child is delayed in one or more of the developmental areas, as documented by test performance of 1.5 standard deviations below the mean on standardized tests. Developmental areas include cognitive, communicative, physical, social/emotional and self-help. For additional information you may contact Elwyn SEEDS at (215) 222-8054. Evaluation Process Each school district, intermediate unit, and charter school has a procedure in place by which parents can request an evaluation. For information about procedures applicable to your child, contact the school, which your child attends. Telephone numbers and addresses can be found at the end of this notice. Parents of preschool age children, age three through five, may request an evaluation in writing by addressing a letter to Elwyn SEEDS at 4025 Chestnut Street, 2nd Floor, Philadelphia, PA 19104. Consent

Program Development

Confidentiality of Information:

For additional information related to student records, the parent can refer to the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) This notice is only a summary of the Special Education services, evaluation and screening activities, and rights and protections pertaining to children with disabilities, children thought to be disabled, and their parents. For more information or to request evaluation or screening of a public or private school child contact the responsible school entity listed below. For preschool age children, information, screenings and evaluations requested, may be obtained by contacting Elwyn SEEDS.

SOUTHPHILLYREVIEW.COM 6 5

School districts, intermediate units and charter schools maintain records concerning all children enrolled in the school, including students with disabilities. All records are maintained in the strictest confidentiality. Your consent, or consent of an eligible child who has reached the age of majority under State law, must be obtained before personally identifiable information is released, except as permitted under the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). The age of majority in Pennsylvania is 21. Each participating agency must protect the confidentiality of personally identifiable information at collection, storage, disclosure, and destruction stages. One official at each participating agency must assume responsibility for ensuring the confidentiality of any personally identifiable information. Each participating agency must maintain, for public inspection, a current listing of the names and positions of those employees within the agency who have access to personally identifiable information.

SEPTEMBER 8, 2011

Once the evaluation process is completed, a team of qualified professional and parents determine whether the child is eligible. If the child is eligible, the individualized education program team meets, develops the program, and determines the educational placement. Once the IEP team develops the program and determines the educational placement, school district staff, intermediate unit staff, or charter school staff will issue a notice of recommended educational placement/prior written notice. Your written consent is required before initial services can be provided. The parent has the right to revoke consent after initial placement.

SOUTH PHILLY REVIEW I

School entities cannot proceed with an evaluation, or with the initial provision of special education and related services, without the written consent of the parents. For additional information related to consent, please refer the Procedural Safeguards Notice which can be found at the PaTTAN website, www.Pattan. net. Once written parental consent is obtained, the district will proceed with the evaluation process. If the parent disagrees with the evaluation, the parent can request an independent education evaluation at public expense.
