Word on the Street

What do you do to make a difference? “I work with teenage kids. It’s a teen afterschool program and we do a lot of community-service projects in the area.� Rebecca Hasbrouck, Broad and Ritner streets

“I used to go out and sweep ... but I try to be in the town watch. I go to the meetings at the police station to try to make a difference in all the noise and the drugs in the city and everything. I just like things to be better.� Mimi Evans, 17th and Wharton streets

“I do volunteer work with elementary school-aged students. I tutor them and mentor. I have three mentorees right now, and I also [volunteer at a] soup kitchen.� Katie Teevan, Pattison and Penrose avenues

“I am about to start a project up in Kensington with Al-Aqsa Mosque, Al-Aqsa Islamic Society and their school about the Kensington Riots of 1844 ... There were also riots that happened in South Philly after the ones in Kensington that were slightly different but still based around hostility toward Irish-Catholic immigrants.â€? Marie MĂśller, Iseminger and Tasker streets

Just what the doctor ordered

W

ho is your Difference Maker? It’s a question many ponder for hours, but the answer came to me in about two seconds: It’s the Cooper University Hospital trauma team. My wife Meredith had just arrived via ambulance to the trauma unit emergency room. She could barely talk and was suffering serious internal bleeding from a lacerated liver. There were two questions going through my mind: Did my wife need surgery? Would she live? I will never forget my wife asking the doctor ‘Will I live?’ Not an easy question to answer, but doctors are required to do so on a regular basis. He responded “yes� and said she just needed to rest. Little did I know at the time that it meant putting her on a ventilator and in a three-week medically-induced coma. The doctor called my house after midnight to advise me of the change. At the time, my only thought was do whatever it takes to save her life, but I wasn’t prepared for what I saw the next morning in the trauma intensive care unit. Meredith had tubes coming out of her in what seemed like every direction. She looked dead. I had trouble maintaining my composure, but I had to be strong. This started what became the longest three weeks of my life. My hour visits involved many one-sided conversations. I would



whisper in her ear to keep fighting and I know she heard me. I spent many of those weeks calling the voice mail at home just so I could hear Meredith’s voice. Every night, before going to sleep, I had a word with the man above. I had one simple request: Please have Meredith wake up by Thanksgiving. Sure enough, on Thanksgiving Eve, I went to Cooper for my daily visit, and to my surprise, I saw Meredith’s eyes open. She was still on the ventilator, but at least could communicate. Not being able to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with her left a very empty feeling. The fight for her life was far from over. The ride on this life-and-death roller coaster had many more twists and turns including MRSA, a collapsed lung and pneumonia to name a few. One afternoon I arrived at Cooper to watch “Las Vegas� with my wife. Before I could even get out a “hello,� she said in a very deep and raspy voice, “you’re late.� At that very moment, I knew without a shadow of a doubt that Meredith was back for the long run. It took several more months for her to return to 100 percent, but I am happy to say, almost four years later, life couldn’t be better. For those doctors and nurses — way too many to name — thank you for making a major difference and sending Meredith back to me. SPR — Editor Bill Gelman

His passion for helping kids dates back to his childhood days when he played sports at Capitolo Playground, Ninth and Federal streets. “When I had my boys, I wanted to teach kids and give back like other coaches did for me growing up,” the native of Eighth and Morris streets said. Some of the words he shares with his young players come from a member of the Philadelphia Phillies 1980 World Series team. DiRenzo was dinning with his son Lou at Stogie Joe’s Tavern, 1801 E. Passyunk Ave., when they noticed Greg Luzinski also enjoying a meal. After the slugger finished eating, the younger Louis approached him for an autograph and some baseball advice. When his son returned to the table, DiRenzo was of course curious about the conversation. “‘He told me to play hard or stay home,’” DiRenzo recalled of his son’s words. When they are in the DVYAA dugouts together, the coach often turns to his son who tells his teammates “always play hard.” Those are words these youngsters can take with them for the rest of their lives as players and possibly future coaches. continued on next page

“I feel blessed I’m here because it’s a perfect t,” she said of her role within the free initiative. “It is my job, but it seems more like a mission.” DosSantos, with more than 25 years as a social worker, stresses not stressing, preferring to remind clients of their irreplaceable worth. Her attitude has guided her through the misfortune of having to part with participants through either their needing placement in a facility or their passing. Sampling their will, though, makes her believe she receives more than she gives. She nds her vital community member distinction attering and wishes to share it with her staff members. “They are reliable, sensitive, compassionate and wise,” the mother of two said. “My life has contained many blessings.

ge typically increases maturity, but it customarily decreases mobility. For the last eight years, Bonney DosSantos has worked to ensure it does not also diminish dignity. As the director of the St. Monica Eldercare Program, based at St. Monica Junior School, 1720 Ritner St., she strives to allow the seniors of South Philly’s largest parish to enjoy life within Girard Estate for as long as possible. “The goal of our program is to help people to age successfully and safely within their homes,” DosSantos, who resides with husband Gary in Riverton, N.J., said of the element of the Farrell-Townsend Trust, an entity named after deceased pastor Monsignor Aloysius F.X. Farrell and his aunt Mary Townsend. Current pastor Rev. Joseph Kelley informed DosSantos that his congregation includes many aging members, so the Archdiocese of Philadelphia employee ventures to their residences to provide geriatric care management assistance. She assesses an individual’s situation, coordinates programs and determines appropriate support such as insurance and prescription drug plans. “I have often been the rst outsider in a senior’s home, so I enjoy establishing trust among my clients,” DosSantos, 56, said. Her gures uctuate but she receives nearly 60 individual contacts per month. Her roster consists of almost 50 parishioners, many arthritis and congestive heart failure sufferers. Rowhome steps often compound their pain, so DosSantos, who has aided more than 300 seniors during the program’s history, looks to bring their bodies comfort while offering their souls a companion.

Andrew Emma

L

ong before joining Passyunk Square Civic Association, Andrew Emma was transforming and greening streets and vacant lots in his neighborhood. Six years ago the Broomall native moved to Passyunk Square — the same neighborhood he visited as a boy when his father, Philip, a Bella Vista native, resided there. During the inaugural Philly Spring Cleanup, Emma, then of 13th and Ellsworth streets, helped to clean up debris in a filthy alley between Ellsworth and Peters streets. “This is just myself and a friend of mine decided to clean it up,” Emma, who now resides on the 1300 block of South Ninth Street, said.

“We were sick of looking at it.” Since becoming the civic’s beautification chair, Emma has made a quite a few sights in the neighborhood more appealing with the latest being the Rachel Ray Garden, East Passyunk Avenue and Wharton Street. Since the talk show turned the space over to Camden Children’s Gardens, the civic asked the Jerseybased organization if it too could give a hand.

oving around Bella Vista for 18 years, Sara Feinstein finally settled on the 1600 block of South Fourth Street about five years ago. Weekly, she would travel from her Pennsport home to the Headhouse Farmers Market, Second and Lombard streets, to get fresh, local produce. “I realized most people don’t walk as much as I do or they aren’t going to be able to walk a mile,” Feinstein, 46, said. “I started to talk to the volunteers at Headhouse about how to get a farmers market started and they said, ‘sure, you can do a farmers market, but you have to raise $20,000 a year.’” With that hefty price tag, Feinstein asked her neighbors for other options. At a Friends of Dickinson Square Park board meeting, Feinstein, who began her second stint as a member in 2009, and her fellow organizers discussed fundraising. Feinstein contacted Farm to City, who guided the market’s application process last year. “We started organizing committees to show we were really behind it,” Feinstein, who also serves as a marketing director, said. “We wanted them to understand there is going to be support for the market.” The organization and persistence paid off in the form of the area’s first farmers market June 5. Since then, she has continued to put programming in place to draw local residents to the market. “We have a gluten-free chef and consultant coming in,” the Pittsburgh native said of the last market scheduled for Oct. 16. “We do community building in Dickinson Square Park in conjunction with the market, which we use to promote the

market’s products and vendors to show what you can do with this produce.” It launched with three vendors and the organizer hopes to grow to four by next year. While Feinstein continues to push to get more stalls to populate the park Sundays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. during the warmer months, those who have already signed on have become honorary members of the South Philadelphia community. “They are friendly with each other, and with the people within our community. We might not be the most profitable — it’s a newer market so it’s got to be worth their while,” Feinstein, who has a background in culinary arts and restaurant management, said. “It’s fun for me. I hang out with the farmers and pretend I know what it’s like to have a green thumb.”

The Falcons assistant varsity football coach quickly joined the team photo after a full day of teaching special education at Edward Bok High School, 1901 S. Ninth St. For many, the 48-minute football game would complete the day, but not for the 53-year-old Packer Park resident who heads off to Barry Playground. 18th and Johnston streets, where he serves as an assistant rec leader.

Gary Harkins more at the The High School for Creative and Performing Arts, 901 S. Broad St., and Salvatore, an eighth grader at Holy Spirit, 1845 Hartranft St. During the school year, Frangipani often leaves his residence on the 1900 block of Forrestal Street, at 7 a.m. and doesn’t return home until 10 p.m. Why does this man of many titles cram so much into his day? “I do it because I love it,” he said. He isn’t going to slow down come December as Frangipani is replacing the late Lloyd Jenkins as Bok’s boys’ basketball coach after spending close to 20 years running the girls’ hoops program at the East Passyunk Crossing-based school. By springtime, he will again coach Bok’s softball team, but winning isn’t the only message he tries to get across. “Especially with the girls’ sports, I want them to learn the game and let them have some fun,” Frangipani said of girls’ teams where filling the roster is often a challenge. Frangipani said his wife of 18 years, Marie, has been very understanding about his many roles, but weekends are reserved for family time, including sum-

mer excursions to the Jersey Shore. In July, Frangipani had a rare trip to the disabled list following hip-replacement surgery, which presented him with a situation that seemed more challenging than drawing up a play with two seconds left on the clock. “It was like a vacation because I was forced to rest for two weeks,” he said with a laugh. “I couldn’t do it.” Now back to his full slate of jobs, Frangipani has learned that the heart and soul that he puts into his daily routine is something others have noticed. “I am very honored and humbled by it because I am just doing what I do everyday,” he said of being selected a Difference Maker.

ince joining the force in 1993, Officer Gary Harkins has had various roles within the 3rd District, 11th and Wharton streets, with stints on patrol, in plain clothes, on burglary and robbery detail and with the narcotic enforcement team. When asked if he were interested in becoming a community relations officer, he figured he’d give it a shot. “I said I would try, and as I did it, I realized that it wasn’t a bad spot for me,” he said of the position he has held for four years. “I do like working with people. I’ve always been a people person.” Harkins, who started with the 4th District prior to its 2010 merge into the 3rd District, now shares the territory east of Broad with fellow Community Relations Officer Ace Delgado. He addresses troubles that range from recent crime trends to problematic neighbors. “I put a lot of hours in here,” the Northeast resident said. “I meet people at nightcontinued on page12

I’ll wait until they get home from work and then meet them.” With the area’s diversity, Harkins makes sure to focus on the needs of each group in the district. While sometimes multiple translators are needed for various dialects, Harkins has one objective. “You just want to make sure at the end of the meeting everyone is aware as to what happened at the meeting,” Harkins, who repaired vending machines prior to joining the force, said. With school back in session, he spends time visiting classrooms to discuss online bullying. “Mean things are said on Facebook,” he said. “I’m trying to get to the kids. Last thing we want to see is a kid from down here trying to commit suicide with mean things said about them.” But the 55-year-old has gone beyond his call of duty by coordinating with his Fraternal Order of Police peers to help out a widowed woman in her 90s with home repairs, as well as an annual Christmas party for children at the Mummers Museum, 1100 S. Second St. “It’s nice to be recognized,” Harkins, who is married to Marie and has three kids — Michele, 25, Gary, who was killed by in an auto accident as a teen, and Nicholas, 17, said. “Not that I ever look for that.

In her role, the former Peace Corps member — who spent two years teaching science and math in Namibia, South Africa — gets to interact with her community. “We provide food directly to the community and deal with the people we serve on a daily basis,” Hile, who has helped to distribute about 11 million pounds of food

intention of leaving the area, the couple recently contributed to the renovation of the Mario Lanza dog park, Second and Catharine streets, as they want to keep improving the area for themselves and their neighbors. Though she provides much needed produce to locals and is responsible for what she terms a “safety net,” being recognized for her service is never something she expected. “It was definitely a surprise,” she said. “I wouldn’t say I’m modest, but I do my job, and the things I’ve done with the Peace Corps and working for Habitat I don’t think as being amazing or anything.”

oo, I’m a South Philly Difference Maker,” Mitch Little said when he was informed of his selection as his son Ethan, 5, screamed with delight. The single father may be a Difference Maker to his boy, but also is changing the lives of those throughout Point Breeze and Grays Ferry. After briefly working as a financial advisor, Little switched paths to do what was instilled in him while growing up in West Philly. “I remember just being, at a very young age, just walking out of the house and doing for others and knowing you were part of a fabric of human kind,” Little, who was named to the Mayor’s Commission on African-American Males last month, said. The Penn State University grad settled in at Diversified Community Services, 1529 S. 22nd St. (then at 1210 and 1226 S. Broad St.), nine years ago as a social worker. He also ran some of the nonprofit’s programs and worked his way up to deputy director about three years ago. “You can say I live here because I probably spend more time here than I do at home because I really love the people and I love the neighborhood,” the Northeast Philly resident said. A typical day on the job for the 37-yearold isn’t so typical. He may be creating programs for teens or ex-offenders, meeting with the mayor to curb violence, teaming up with Universal Companies, 801 S. 15th St., on the Promise Neighborhoods Initiative or even cutting the grass at the office. “I’ve just been sitting around,” he said jokingly. “It’s kind of crazy thinking of this. Man, I’m tired.” However, some of his past successful programs have been eliminated. “It’s really some of the tragedy in doing some of this work. You’re on to something … and someone at a desk somewhere says, ‘this is a line item that is a justifiable cut,’” Little said of Adolescent Violence Reduction Program, which targeted at-risk youth and first-time offenders, but was cut in 2007. Regardless, he continues to do his part creating programs like Hoops for Life, which ties sports with life skills, and Youth Entrepreneurship Program, which allows teens to run a water ice business. And with Ethan by his side, Little will continue to address the neighborhood’s issues. “You won’t ever say that this kid won’t know or hasn’t experienced what it’s like to be an active, social citizen, and I think that’s one of the biggest lessons I want to pass on to him,” he said. continued on page 14

nemployment can devastate one’s confidence. Robert Malara, however, forbid his setback from ruining his resolve. The resident of the 1200 block of South Iseminger Street became a School District of Philadelphia budgetary cut casualty in June and lost his kindergarten teaching position at Andrew Jackson School, 1213 S. 12th St. The dismissal could have withered his will and the garden he created earlier this year at the Passyunk Square site, but he diligently tended to its collection of perennials and other plants over the summer. “I decided I wanted more than just a classroom setting to help my learners,” he said of his motivation. Malara, 52, lacks a solid horticultural background, so the project educated him as much as his pupils. DonorsChoose, an online charity, helped him to pick materials, and personnel from Columbus Square Park, 12th and Wharton streets, offered assistance. Some vegetation had already existed at Jackson’s entrance, but Malara sought a more vibrant spectacle. His foresight resulted in 100 feet of space and the children’s elation. Joy turned to concern as the instructor learned he would be exiting the learning instiJessica Mammarella

tution after only one year. “I was worried about losing the DonorsChoose money,” Malara, who taught 11 years at Christopher Columbus Charter School, 1242-46 S. 13th St., said. Hoping for reinstatement, he asked for and received clemency, but his ordered plants ended up discontinued. Regardless, he made use of the organization’s previous offerings, donations from others and personal purchases to sustain his brainchild. “Working on the garden kept me from thinking about bad scenarios,” he said of fears of not returning to Jackson. He made the 15 varieties’ roots happy and gained more than vicarious pleasure when the district welcomed him back just in time to meet a new group of youngsters, with whom he will share his budding hobby. “The garden is very relaxing to me,” the Lansdowne native said. His distinction as a Difference Maker gives him pride, although it runs counter to his self-perception. “I prefer staying behind the scenes,” he said, “or, in this case, behind the bushes and trees.”

Menna’s biggest project with his young charges is its food drive for which the outfit has collected up to 5,000 cans within two weekends for the last 15 years by canvassing South Philly neighborhoods. “They have opportunities to build their communication, thinking and leadership skills outside of schools,” the alum of Stephen Girard School, 1800 Snyder Ave., and Girard Academic Music Program, 2136 Ritner St., said. By day, he is the City of Philadelphia’s Streets Department chief assistant bridge engineer and a Philadelphia Community College adjunct professor. The 2003 Engineers’ Club of Philadelphia Young Engineer of the Year also does consulting for businesses and homeowners to help to improve their properties — saving some from being demolished. “There’s a tough spirit that these [South Philly] people have and that’s part of who I am,” he said.

His bond with his home turf is so strong that he has donated about $30,000 of his own funds to his South Philly neighbors over the past five years. “I always said when I was younger, if

Anton Moore “Basically giving people who don’t have the means for a home-cooked meal — we’re going to feed the community on that day,” he said. Moore, who briefly lived in a homeless shelter as a toddler, grew up at Tasker Homes, now Greater Grays Ferry Estates, 3001 Moore St. At about age 10, Moore’s family — his mother, Danine, and his four siblings — relocated to West Passyunk. By age 14, Moore began working various restaurant jobs and helped his father, David Eggleton, on his trash route weekly before landing internships at Power 99 FM and BET during his high school and Community College of Philadelphia years. But it’s the more recent news of being recognized as a Difference Maker that has caught Moore by surprise. “It’s just something you never dream of when you’re young, so when it actually happens, it’s just a state of shock,” he said.

s. Neumann-Goretti High School, 1736 S. 10th St., is using “We can get you there” as this school year’s slogan. Nobody seems more fit to lead the mission than third-year President John Murawski, who has nurtured a 19-year relationship with the East Passyunk Crossing location. The 1996 St. John Neumann graduate, who resides on the 100 block of McKean Street, also has run the institution’s recruitment and athletic departments, but helming the daily operations has revealed his innovative abilities. “Making improvements to the building was my first priority,” the lifelong Pennsporter, who resides with wife Nancy and their three children — Nathan, 7, Nolan, 4, and Sadie Mae, 2, said of strengthening his alma mater. Highlights of his ambition include new biology and chemistry labs, a modified gymnasium, an enhanced media center, Smart Boards and the Nintendo Wii Fitness Lab. An Apple iPad Lab and changes to McNichol Field, 26th and Moore streets, will head the second wave of advances. “My plan is to make the school more marketable, to give families what they are paying for,” Murawski, a 15-year alumni board member, said. “We pride ourselves on being a family, on helping people to realize they do not need to go beyond their backyard.” His pro-South Phillly stance began at the Edward O’Malley Athletic Association, 144 Moore St., starting at age 5. Along with Neumann-Goretti, it hosts the activities of his 14-year-old Personal Health, Youth Sport, Education & Development nonprofit, which lets him promote his passions, health and physical education, through activities and camps. Set to honor those who helped him at the its 50th anniversary this weekend, he modestly accepted his own kudos. “I feel humbled,” the 33-year-old said. “Anyone among the hundreds of people who have helped me should have earned this distinction.”

At age 8, Menna was introduced to Boy Scouts and at 18, he made the highest honor of Eagle Scout. “I enjoy giving back to it because of all the things it gave me.

Menna, the scout leader for Troop 147, the same group he joined as a child, has been focusing on giving the boys — ages 11 to 18 — an outdoor experience that isn’t easy to achieve in the city for more than 20 years.

I ever get in the position to bless someone else, I wanted to do it,” the CEO and founder of Unity in the Community said. For four-straight years, Moore has organized a summer block party on his street — the 2000 block of Snyder Avenue. Last year, Unity, which is in the process of becoming a nonprofit, donated gifts to multiple families in need with Operation Holiday Help and rewarded a Point Breeze teen with the Ultimate Prom Experience. His giving nature stemmed from seeing youngsters lacking anything to look forward to when he was growing up. “When we did the block party, I saw how happy people were — coming together and having a good time,” he said of the event that gathered about 500 people and featured food and a performance by Trina. With the creation of Unity’s board of directors, Moore plans to make each of those annual affairs in addition to creating a mentorship program, planning events geared toward curbing violence and, next month, cooking Thanksgiving dinner.

of South 21st Street two years ago, has made it more obtainable for her neighbors. She planted a small garden last year and this year, received a U.S. Department of Agriculture grant to transform a vacant lot near her home into a green space filled with flowers, herbs, strawberries, eggplants, tomatoes, beets, radishes and more. On days when Mammarella, a recent Temple University graduate, and her spouse sell their wares, they awake at about 6 a.m. to harvest and prepare the pickings for their afternoon stand stationed in front of their dwelling. “Our neighbors really liked it and they would buy food from us,” the Northeast Philly native who moved to South Jersey at a young age, said. “We had a lot of neighborhood kids that would come over to the garden and plant seeds … It was really fun. That was actually the best part — having kids come over and plant.” The 30-year-old even educated the youngsters, many of whom had never utilized their green thumbs before. One boy asked her, “does that grow a can?” as he pointed at collard greens. “I was like ‘no, this is a plant we eat and you eat.’ He had eaten it before, but only from a can, so we sent him home with some for his family.” The grant covers next year too, but after that, the plot’s status is up in the air although she is looking to buy the Cityowned lot. “Our motivation is just I love gardening,” she said. “I would do it no matter what even if it’s in a small pot. We see the future of Point Breeze as very bright and we feel we can move it along in that direction.”

Calling a Plummer

C

assie Plummer is successfully blending her affinities for food and community building. The Passyunk Square resident serves as a director-at-large for the 20-month-old South Philly Food Co-op, an all-volunteer organization eager to open a member-owned grocery store replete with locally sourced and organic grub. Receiving a master’s degree in public health in 2006 endowed the Maine native and pharmacist with a desire to form strong community connections. The co-op allows her to educate the masses on nutritional options while also addressing bodily and civic autonomy. “The co-op is about improving the community, having a role in keeping money in the area and supporting local food owners,” Plummer, 35, who resides on the 900 block of Wharton Street with boyfriend Justin Kumpf, said. She began her core outreach last winter by organizing numerous healthy eating and cooking events. Because summer reigns as the most produce friendly season, she secured merchants to donate goodies to the Music in the Park series at Gold Star Park, Sixth and Wharton streets. She also raised more than $2,500 toward the co-op’s startup costs by selling tickets

to Sept. 10’s first annual South Philly Garden Tour. “There are a few misconceptions about co-ops,” Plummer said, citing opinions of them as being only for those whose lifestyles shun mainstream interests. Regardless of perceptions, she and her allies are working with consultants to determine a feasible location for a store. Nearly 90 people have become memberowners, and the search will intensify when the tally hits 250. Plummer expressed excitement over developing more educational presentations and hopes to have the local co-op open in early ’13. Honored to be a Difference Maker, Plummer, deemed

herself a benefactor of others’ aid. “I couldn’t have gotten this far without all of the other volunteers, board members and committee members,” she said. “They are the real heroes.”

assyunk Square’s Susan Posternock admits her involvement with the South Philadelphia Library, 1700 S. Broad St., originally had selfish motives. “It was the time when the mayor was looking at making all those cuts in the library, and I am a really heavy library user and I wanted to make sure my library was

going to continue to be there for me, and for everyone else too,” Posternock, a Wildwood Crest, N.J. native, who, as a child, begged her parents to take her to the area’s larger library, said. At first there was not a big volunteer turnout, so the 35-year-old recruited two close friends and fellow library lovers, Laura McColgan, Friends of Whitman Library president, and Linda Montgomery, Friends of Donatucci Library president, to help to begin building Friends of the South Philadelphia Library in 2009. The trio, along with other volunteers including boyfriend Scott Knodle, worked with the branch manager Tiffany Smith to help develop programs and fundraisers for the library, which has the traffic flow of one of the larger branches. The funds were used to expand cultural materials such those needed for the influx of Cambodian residents. Her team, which now includes Katie McDonald and Jennifer Brank, also put together an Oct. 22 pumpkin-painting event. Posternock finds the simple events are easy on the committee and seem to have the most success. Things like the gardening club or book sales help to support the programs and offset library costs.

Difference Makers continued from page 16 sition and volunteer work, she has a real estate business on the side. Her philosophy on balancing all of her roles is to simply just make time because the children’s excitement and reaction to her programs make it all worthwhile. “How can I not do this?” she said.

Relaying a message

C

ancer has many opponents, with few fighting as fervently as Michelle Rumbaugh. The 23-yearold Passyunk Square native sees the disease as a strong foe, but she tries to top its tenacity as an organizer of The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of South Philadelphia. The resident of the 1300 block of South 13th Street lost her maternal grandfather to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2005 and sought to honor him, other casualties and survivors. Already a volunteer at The American Red Cross and Pennsylvania Hospital’s Joan Karnell Cancer Center, she found her answer just before last year’s celebration. “I love Relay For Life because it addresses all cancers,” the Neumann-Goretti High School, 1736 S. 10th St., and Thomas Jefferson University graduate, said of the event, which began in ’08. Citizens Bank Park, 1 Citizens Bank Way, hosted the first two walks, but various matters forced Rumbaugh and her 10-member Laps for Life team to make their initial steps at Northern Liberties’ The Piazza at Schmidts. For this year, she

Michelle Rumbaugh suggested Franklin Delano Roosevelt Park, Broad Street and Pattison Avenue, to give South Philly the geographical limelight again and secured numerous sponsorships, including one from her employer, IBEW Local Union 98, for her June jaunt. “For next year I am really trying to attract more survivors for the relay,” Rumbaugh said of the fortunate figures whose lap will begin the May 12 festivities. She and her colleagues have moved the event from June to draw schools’ involvement, and Rumbaugh will stage mini-relays in area institutions by the beginning of next year. With a tireless enemy to battle, she aims to add teams to the relay and years to everyone’s lives. “I do not feel I do anything differently than others,” the future medical school attendee said of her distinction. She has not become involved in any endeavors to boost her résumé, she said, yet deems apathy as dangerous as cancer. “I enjoy learning,” she said, “but I want to help others to see it does not take much to be a Difference Maker.”

oogle Letty Santarelli and one will discover that this 1986 Immaculata University graduate was a NCAA First Team All-American selection who was nationally ranked in both scoring and rebounding and selected to play in the Women’s Professional Basketball League, which proceeded the WNBA. These days, girls ranging from grade to high school are benefitting from the 47-year-old’s basketball passion and knowledge.

The resident of the 2900 block of South Broad Street, is involved with the game year-round. Her current basketball résumé includes coaching the Amateur Athletic Union’s Philadelphia Comets; the Catholic Youth Organization squad for St. Richard, 1828 Pollock St., as well as serving as an assistant for the Neumann-Goretti Saints. In the last two years, she has added the title of outreach director for Philly Girls Got Game — an organization committed to the development and improvement of girls’ basketball. One aspect of the program includes holding an annual clinic at NeumannGoretti with Philadelphia Big 5 coaches and players volunteering their services. The organization has since added a fall basketball league with fourth- through sixthgraders playing weekly games at Guerin Rec Center, 16th and Jackson streets, and seventh- and eighth-graders taking the Neumann-Goretti court Saturday mornings. It may seem likethe Marconi resident lives on the local basketball courts, but she also has three kids involved with sports. Fred, 18, plays football for the Pottstown-based Hill School, Tisha, 16, attends Bishop Eustace in New Jersey while Alexis, 13, is an eighth-grader at St. Richard. All three volunteer some of their time helping out at camps and clinics. “My youngest will come in after a volleyball game and ask to help with the clock or book,” Santarelli, a Delaware County native, said. “They are learning to give back to the community. My husband [Fred] also is very supportive.” No matter which team she is coaching, Santarelli promotes a winning mentality “I guess the thing I try to instill in the girls is if you want to be successful in life, you need to be disciplined, focussed and have good character,” Santarelli said. “Having fun is really important and goes with anything in life, not just sports.”

of the 1800 block of South 16th Street is leading a home-birthing revolution through Motherland Midwifery, her five-year-old home-based practice. “Over several years, midwifery became the center of a wheel that connected so much of what I wanted my life and learning to be about,” the Norristown native said of her attraction to the ancient discipline through which women receive care during pregnancy, labor, birth and the postpartum stage. Santoro obtained certification in 2002 and moved to Newbold a year later. Many residents within her neighborhood and New Jersey share her fears on the medicalization of women’s health issues and seek the added communal appreciation of life that midwifery provides. “It is certainly not just about catching the baby,” the 37-year-old said of her role. Among other boons, Santoro offers breast-feeding support, nutritional counseling, prenatal care and six weeks of postpartum care, though she often alters the final piece. “My official line is ‘When the kids are in college, don’t call me,’” she said with a laugh. Married to Martin Wiley, father of their 2-year-old daughter Itzela Wiley, Santoro serves as a co-chair of the Midwives Alliance of Pennsylvania. She helped to compose the first edition of “The Philadelphia Guide to a Healthy Birth” and shares advice and resources through the Kids South of Washington Google group. Though unsure of the number of local births on which she has assisted, she knows South Philly is going through a baby boom and cited national figures as proof of the growing validity of residential births. “The whole issue is not about home birth or bust, however,” Santoro said, stressing the upholding of a woman’s autonomy regardless of setting. She never seeks acclaim but appreciates her Difference Maker selection. “I feel affirmed,” Santoro said. “It is great to hear I am making a difference.” continued on page 21

Though demonstrating diligence, she deems her efforts minimal. “So much more could be done,” Squillaciotti,, 58, said. Her late father, Pasquale Squillaciotti, bred her interest in civics, and Squillaciotti uses his philosophy to inspire her outreach. “It’s quite simple,” she said. “I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good, therefore, I can do, or any kindness I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now, for I shall not pass this way again.” Marianne Squillaciotti continued from page 18

“I’ve been all over, but I always come right back here to Point Breeze,” Swain, who is a mother to Christian, 2, said. “I want more for myself as well as the community.” Swain goes above the call of duty in dedicating her personal time and counsel. In her first role at Diversified, she oversaw the Dixon House summer camp, where she made an indelible impression on many young women. “I would usually take out maybe about five girls, but I don’t pick them on any specific criteria,” she said. “I would typically just take them out. We might shop, have lunch … just talked about what was going on in their lives, what was going on in school.” For adults, she focuses on making her neighbors see the bigger picture, by providing the education, resources and motivation to improve their lives and the lives of their children, such as with Graduation Coaches Campaign, which aims to increase the city’s graduation rates by 80 percent. Swain became a trainer for the program and runs workshops for community members on how to get involved. “If we’re not giving our children what they need to propel them forward, they’ll be doing the same thing in 15 years,” she said.

ennifer Swain was born and raised at 20th and Morris streets. Since then, she has moved only a few blocks to 22nd and Tasker streets, but has drastically changed her Point Breeze community. “Primarily what I do is, basically, I just connect community members with resources and make referrals,” the Neighborhood Advisory Coordinator for Diversified Community Services, 1529 S. 22nd St., said. “… It’s a safety-net service. I ensure they receive [the help they need].” Swain, 30, has touched the lives of many people while assisting in humanitarian projects in the Kyrgyz Republic and United Arab Emirates as an Army chaplain’s assistant, as well as teaching English as a second language while stationed in Japan. She especially has made an impact since coming to Diversified in June 2010 — so much so that the Review received two separate nominations for Swain, She, however, is modest in her explanation of her role as community connector.

ngelica Victoriano’s family was poor and unable to send her to school past the second grade. Years later, she fought to transform a school so her children could receive the education she never did. The youngest of 11 children from Guerrero, Mexico immigrated to New York for a better life at age 15. Six years ago, she married her husband, Galdino Ruiz, and relocated to the 1300 block of Federal Street with son Louis, but ran into trouble enrolling him in a Passyunk Square facility. “I remember when I first came [to Andrew Jackson School, 1213 S. 13th St.,] to continued on page 23

alter Stewart teaches enthusiastic fourth graders at Germantown’s The DePaul Catholic School, so he often proffers praise. As the head coach of the West Passyunk-based Soccer Sisters United Inc., he has become the recipient of rampant renown, leading what many laud as the nation’s first and only competitive soccer club for inner city African-American girls to numerous titles and doing so without monetary compensation. Stewart considers his girls’ success his currency, as it gives him figurative wealth. His teams, whose origins date back to 1998 and a single squad at Marian Anderson Recreation Center, 744 S. 17th St., are filled with skilled athletes, many coming from financially forlorn families. A former lawyer, he cannot beat charges that he would make any sacrifice to keep his soccer pupils believing they could play for a college unit or a higher outfit. He has eased travel by offering rides to practices and games and has shared the contents of his wallet for the young ladies to purchase food. “He is fantastic,” Germantown’s Cierra Gordon, a new player and a member of his class, said of Stewart.

oses, who wandered in the wilderness for 40 years yet never reached the Promised Land, would envy Marianne Squillaciotti, who has made Bella Vista her paradise. The persistent personality works as a patient representative for Center City’s Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, but other roles really reveal her verve. As block captain of the 800 block of Fitzwater Street, Bella Vista United Civic Association board member, 2nd Ward Democratic Executive Committee judge of elections and Order Sons of Italy in America Altavilla Irpina Lodge No. 219 secretary, she promotes communal growth and praises God for her opportunities as a choir member at St. Paul’s Catholic Church, 808 S. Hutchinson St. Faulty streetlights, piled trash and congested alleys meet their match against Squillaciotti, who also remedies downtrodden hearts. “I feel a goodness in my heart,” she said of making holiday basket deliveries to her area’s struggling families. She thrives when festive times arrive, so the upcoming months will prove testaments to her selflessness. She continued her involvement with the Columbus Day Parade Sunday by riding her decorated red scooter to Marconi Plaza, Broad Street and Oregon Avenue, and will delight trick-or-treaters with goodies at Cianfrani Park, Eighth and Fitzwater streets, while donning a costume to brighten spirits. Dressed as a turkey, she travels throughout Bella Vista to stuff stomachs with Thanksgiving provisions and returns to the park as an elf to distribute Christmas and Hanukkah gifts. “I tried being Santa one year, but my gut kept falling out,” she said. She resurrects good vibes for Easter by

“He is sensational,” Olney’s Marie Christelle Sahou added. “A genius.” For seven years, Stewart and his stars have used Smith Playground, 2100 S. 24th St., giving local onlookers samples of lively limbs and precise perception. The country has begun to learn his leadership produces victories and, more importantly, promotes confidence, as a Texas University professor is finalizing a documentary on the youngsters and first lady Michelle Obama hosted them and the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team Oct. 6 at a White House gathering to advance her Let’s Move! fitness initiative. “It’s an honor and I appreciate it,” Stewart said of his selection. “I appreciate the nomination probably as much as the honor. It’s great to have parental recognition of the sacrifices that go on to make something like this work.”

“I

’ve definitely learned that your limits are always farther away than you think they are,” Joe Whelan of Queen Village said of his nine-year running career. The resident of Front and Pemberton streets volunteers for Center City’s Students Run Philly Style as a running leader, which entails training 13 students, many from The Academy at Palumbo, 1100 Catharine St., for Nov. 20’s Philadelphia Marathon. Whelan, 27, and his charges have explored the city three times per week since August. The Temple University alumnus, who maintains www.regularjoerunning.com to document his successes, devises the runs’ routes, which often include jaunts through the stadium complex area and always reinforce the trials and triumphs of covering concrete. He meets the students at his South of South office where he works as a senior content editor for a public policy and technology company and engrosses them in a discipline that took him four years to love. Their acceptance has come more rapidly, and Whelan, with course work in secondary education, relies on his athletic and educational background to ensure they never view running as placing “just one foot over the other.” “I want for them to be in love with everything surrounding the experience,” Whelan, a Northeast Philly native whose racing epiphany came courtesy of the 2006 Broad Street Run, said. In his second year with Students Run Philly Style, he is enjoying his first long-term volunteer effort and hopes to continue to mold youths as a Peace Corps English instructor in either Central or South America. Though the areas’ warm weather is appealing, he will enjoy Center City’s autumnal chill along with his runners. “The kids bring great energy to my life and have made me a better person in so many ways,” he said. Unassuming, he sees his distinction as “a humbling honor.” “I am thankful,” he said. “My role allows me to use my gifts to give back to a good group of people.” SPR Comment at www.southphillyreview.com/ news/features.

give the application for registration, I had to come three to four times,” Victoriano, 26, said through a translator. “There were no interpreters in the building.” After successfully enrolling her son Louis in kindergarten, he struggled, so the now mother of three — Louis, 10, Karen, 6, and Joshua, 10 months — requested he be tested to no avail. Victoriano sought help from JUNTOS, 2029 S. Eighth St., a nonprofit working on behalf of Spanishspeaking immigrants, who placed a complaint that resulted in her son’s placement in part-time learning support. “After what happened with his evaluation and everything else, I tried to come into the school and give my time, but they would not allow me that opportunity,” she said. Instead a handful of parents met at her home to create requests, such as opening the library and adding more security officers, for the then-principal, but the school’s leader seemed unresponsive. Although some parents and district staffers tried to discourage her, she testified before the School Reform Commission two years ago. “If I had not done what I had done then the school district would not have paid me any attention,” she said. “They made it seem like what I was doing was wrong, but I was just trying to help the school.” A committee of parents, community members and teachers hired principal Lisa Ciaranca-Kaplan, who led the school to Adequate Yearly Progress in reading and math on the state’s standardized tests for the first time and allowed parents to hold events that celebrate the school diverse ethnicities that include African Americans, Hispanics, Asians and Caucasians among others, last year. “Everything has been great,” Victoriano, Jackson’s Home and School Association’s president, said. “What we want as par-

ents is to keep going and have this school be a multicultural school.” While she has influenced the education of Louis, now a fourth-grader, she has also impacted the 400-pupil student body. “I don’t see myself as anything,” Victoriano said. “I see that the school has changed. You can see the changes as soon as you walk in.”

Cardella

By Tom Cardella Columnist

An officer and a friend

I

was walking through the extensive grounds of the Defense Supply Center Philadelphia (DSCP) in Northeast Philly when I first saw Mary Ann Garbowski. She jogged past me wearing running shorts and a U.S. Air Force T-shirt in August 2005. I had been discharged from the Air Force Reserve in 1966. One look at then-Maj. Garbowski and I was ready to re-enlist. Little did I know then that in the next six years, she would become one of our closest friends. There is much more to Mary Ann than her considerably good looks (although I stand by my offer to re-enlist if the Air Force will take me). Mary Ann is Sarah Jessica Parker if Sarah belonged to Doctors Without Borders. Despite her surname, she was born in Puerto Rico and is its best argument to become our 51st state. Her father is a decorated veteran of both the Korean and Vietnam wars. He raised her, for all practical purposes, by himself in St. Petersburg, Fla. Mr. Garbowski expected nothing short of excellence from his daughter. He refused to allow her to feel sorry for herself because she came from a broken home. He practically willed her to succeed and she has repaid his efforts handsomely. She is a graduate of the University of Florida, a Gator to the core. At Florida, she combined academic excellence with being a “Gator Girl,” and still wears her blue and orange on game days. Mary Ann went on to obtain a masters in health administration at the University of North Florida, and in 1997, was commissioned as a Medical Service Corps Officer. From there her career as an Air Force officer took off. Perhaps two of the most defining moments of her young life came on healthcare missions, one in Ecuador outside of military life and the other as part of the USNS MERCY after a tsunami hit Jolo in the Philippine Islands where Mary Ann served as a health-care professional for the sick and injured. One of the most moving videos I have ever seen is of then-Maj. Garbowski being interviewed during the Jolo tragedy. Her voice chokes with emotion as she describes what it means to be part of a relief operation saving lives, and it is impossible to keep a dry eye. Her various career stops from D.C.’s Bolling to Hawaii’s Hickam and then to Colorado’s Buckley Air Force Base finally brought her to DSCP where she quickly became part of our family. That’s where we glimpsed the Sarah Jessica Parker side

of Mary Ann’s personality. My wife, Fran, bonded with Mary Ann on their passion for shopping (particularly shoes). Thus was born the Black Friday tradition. Every year at precisely 5:30 a.m. while I slumber with dreams of Thanksgiving football dancing in my head, they are off in search of the perfect bargain. The two of them reappear around 8 at night, packages in hand, wanting to know where we are dining that evening. Mary Ann knows as much about wine as any sommelier. We often dined at Le Virtu, 1927 E. Passyunk Ave., and we always let her pick the wine, after a short chat with Fred, the restaurant’s co-owner. Her dark eyes never flash more brightly than when eating a bowl of the restaurant’s scrippelle soup. There also were the marvelous trips to New York to see Liza Minnelli (Mary Ann actually met Liza outside a theater on one of her trips), great theater, and of course, shopping. Handbags were another passion Mary Ann and Fran shared. One time they followed some street guy several blocks in a quest for bargain handbags with me in pursuit. They wound up disappearing, to my astonishment, into a rundown building where I chased them up two flights of stairs. Yes, they wound up with great handbags and wondered why I had wet my pants. Incidentally, Mary Ann also digs fine pens and gourmet coffee makers — she makes a divine latte. Life in the military is difficult. Just as you are enjoying great friends and extended family, you are called to duty elsewhere. We managed to keep our adventures going on weekends when Mary Ann was reassigned to the Department of Homeland Security in D.C. on a FEMA fellowship in September 2007, and then Fort Detrick, Md. in August ’09. There were still the side trips to New York — once where we caught Linda Eder at Feinsteins.— and all those laughs at who knows what. Fran and I attended her promotion ceremony at Fort Detrick when she became a lieutenant colonel in front of an audience that included her beaming dad, friends and colleagues. Lt. Col. Garbowski continues to pile up awards and honors for her dedicated service. She moved on at the end of this summer to Vandenberg Air Force Base in Santa Barbara County, Calif. as squadron commander. She was named recipient of the ’11 American Academy of Medical Administrators’ YC Parris Young Federal Healthcare Executive Award. She is expected back for Black Friday when she and my wife will no doubt go off into the morning in search of the perfect bargain. In the meantime, we miss her like hell. The scrippelle soup is waiting, my dear. Hurry back! SPR Comment at www.southphillyreview.com/opinion/cardella.

‘Real’ worthy

Charlie Kenton (Hugh Jackman), left, and his son Max (Dakota Goyo) do some father-son bonding while trying to rekindle Charlie’s robot boxing career.

By R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer

I

n practically every way, “Real Steel” seems destined to fall flat, especially in terms of the natural dramatic downgrade of seeing not fragile humans, but non-living, non-feeling robots clocking each other in the ring. But apart from offering a bogus explanation (in this nottoo-distant future, the public “wants true, no-holds-barred violence”), this hugely satisfying family flick makes certain that there’s ample humanity behind the clanging metal, from the handlers who control the bots via voice commands and shadowboxing to a father-son bond that’s unexpectedly ironclad. Credit director Shawn Levy for approaching the material with an objective of character over soulless stimuli, but surely don’t count out Hugh Jackman, who turns in a very meaty performance, both gruff and ultra-sensitive. Jackman is Charlie, an ex-boxer now working in the dregs of the robot-fighting industry, who opts to look after his estranged son, Max (Dakota Goyo), as part of a shady deal to make extra cash. There’s instant recognition of how Charlie’s arc will pan out (from deadbeat to devotee), but Jackman makes it work, with major support from Goyo, an unabashedly nervy child actor who digs into Charlie and Max’s unique rapport (they verbally spar from minute one). The duo finds common ground in love of the futuristic sport, and piggybacking on Charlie’s tale of redemption and formerglory-revival is the scenario of Max’s ramshackle, junkyard robot going all the way in a major tournament. It’s a joy to see how well “Real Steel” is able to transcend its worn-thin formula, offering tear-inducing familial milestones along with irresistibly

entertaining touches (wait’ll you see Max dance The Robot with his robot). With sun-drenched industrial spaces that evoke Michael Bay, but an ardent refusal to simply sell the mass destruction of hunks of junk, “Real Steel” is the anti-”Transformers,” not to mention one of 2011’s leading expectation-exceeders. This thing has so much genuine spirit coursing through it that when Max’s robot suffers his inevitable climactic beatdowns, you’re almost willing to believe the ringside passion keeps him from tapping out.

Real Steel PG-13 Three reels out of four Now playing in area theaters

Recommended Rental Page One: Inside the New York Times R Available Tuesday It may be a bit too insistent upon exalting its chief subject, but Andrew Rossi’s documentary “Page One: Inside the New York Times” is the most comprehensive film yet about the ever-changing state of journalistic media, reading a bit like a newspaper as it moves through each of the top stories of our headlines-as-hashtags era. Most importantly, it steps back and takes a contemplative breath while everyone else dives headlong into an all-digital world.

More than moviemakers

Movies

These eight directors have dedicated their careers to delivering powerful messages from behind the camera. R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer

P

eople often talk about how they turn to movies to escape, and that’s certainly part of the thrill of cinema, but its greater function is to shape the way we look at the world, and the greatest filmmakers have the ability to shape the world itself. Here are eight inimitable maestros who, through their work, have managed to do just that.

Steven Spielberg

It’s impossible to not be wowed by Spielberg’s filmography. Responsible for providing audiences with a library of mainstream classics (“Jaws,” “Close Encounters,” “E.T.,” “Jurassic Park,” and on they go), Spielberg is a titan of contemporary popular cinema. On the flip side, though, he is also a brilliant maker of issue films. He has Steven crafted accessible — Spielberg albeit divisive — movies on historical struggles of blacks (“The Color Purple,” “Amistad”), riveting meditations on war (“Saving Private Ryan”), and most memorably, vital expressions of Jewish experience. In addition to driving the Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation, and directing the Oscarnominated “Munich,” he delivered one of the definitive films on the Holocaust with “Schindler’s List,” helping to ensure that the unspeakable is never forgotten.

Michael Moore

You may hate his methods and extremist tendencies, but documentarian Moore is a patriot with a camera, willing to turn any stone and push any button to get the answers he seeks. To be sure, the final cuts of his films are the results of much subjective editing, with the truth shaped and molded to his leftist specifications, but there Michael is always a noble goal Moore that gleams through the

provocation, a largely nonpartisan justice begging to be served. Be it hounding former NRA head Charlton Heston about gun laws in “Bowling for Columbine,” or exploring the particulars of post-9/11 theories in the unmissable “Fahrenheit 9/11,” Moore has a sure talent for prying eyes open as he pries into lives, hitting the streets as a (very loud) voice of the people.

Gus Van Sant

Ang Lee may have ushered gay romance into the multiplexes with “Brokeback Mountain,” but if there’s one filmmaker who’s made substantial strides in the representation of homosexuals on screen, surely it’s Van Sant, who broke through in 1985 with “Mala Noche,” then became one of the leading figures of the New Queer Cinema movement. Openly Gus Van Sant gay himself, Van Sant hasn’t strictly adhered to telling gay stories (you’ve seen him in fighting form with such hetero titles as “Good Will Hunting” and “To Die For”), but he’s helmed multiple films that are sacred to the LGBT community, namely 2008’s “Milk” and, certainly, 1991’s “My Own Private Idaho,” a seminal movie for many sexually struggling Millenials, and the best evidence of Van Sant’s poetic gifts.

Jafar Panahi

Perhaps the most important Iranian filmmaker, Panahi became a mainstay on the international festival circuit after his 1995 debut, “White Balloon” won the Camera d’Or at the Canne Film Festival. But in 2010, amid the aftermath of the infamous killing of martyr Neda Agha-Soltan, Panahi was arrested on unspecified charges, sentenced to six years Jafar Panahi in jail and forbidden to make films for two decades. He has since released inspiring letters to an ardently supportive film community, and this year’s Cannes fest featured his latest work, “This Is Not a Film,”

a compilation of documentary footage he shot before going to prison. Panahi is an unfortunate symbol for the importance of expression and the freedom to tell stories, an his undaunted outlook is a testament to the power of creative drive.

Spike Lee

Forget Tyler Perry. For more than 25 years, Lee has been the most important voice in modern black cinema, tackling race relations like no other filmmaker before or since. His 1989 masterpiece, “Do the Right Thing,” is one of a handful of indispensable movies on the topic, and subsequent films like “Bamboozled” saw Spike Lee their flaws eclipsed by a searing analysis of the ways that cultures clash in American society. A provocateur, Lee has gotten flack for his comments off screen, but nevertheless, what he says with his work is almost always worth hearing.

Paul Greengrass

Five years after 9/11, many complained it was too soon to furl out responses to the tragedy on the big screen. In the case of Oliver Stone’s “World Trade Center,” which sugared the tale of the most fateful day of our time like it was just another tentpole throwaway, they were certainly right. But when Paul it came to Greengrass’s Greengrass “United 93,” which captured the breadth of the day’s panic but narrowed its focus to those on board the doomed flight that crashed in Pennsylvania, they were presented with proof that every sensitive subject just needs the right artist to interpret it. Scary,

fair and, above all, heroic, “United 93” was the topical film the nation didn’t even know it needed.

Kathryn Bigelow

Long known for crafting adrenalinefueled action movies as deftly as any man, Bigelow, director of “Point Break,” scored a double feat in 2009 with the release of “The Hurt Locker,” which emerged as the finest film to be created about the Iraq War and made her the first-ever female recipient of the Kathryn Best Director Academy Bigelow Award. Not one to rest her laurels (or limit her challenges), the 59-year-old game-changer is now back in the fray, following her breakage of the glass ceiling with a buzzworthy, controversial war drama about Osama bin Laden.

Jean-Luc Godard

One of the most influential directors of all time, French New Wave visionary Jean-Luc Godard changed the world of motion pictures in 1960, when he released “Breathless,” an unapologetically youth-driven anti-establishment film that ignited the creation of American landmarks like “Bonnie and Clyde,” Jean-Luc and the acting careers of Godard Jean-Paul Belmondo emulators like Warren Beatty and Jack Nicholson. Along with colleague Françlarge part, we have him to thank for the rich and original stories told by the other filmmakers in this list.

utumn means cooler weather, golden leaves and pumpkins. For those craving a seasonal treat, try this traditional Pumpkin Bread recipe from Heather Hudman. The resident of the 1500 block of West Ritner Street offers up a recipe that’s super easy and great for any fall festivity. The spicy, moist pumpkin bread loaf is a nice alternative to pumpkin pie, and can easily be made into smaller snacks by using a muffin pan. SPR Comment at www.southphillyreview.com/food-and-drink/recipes.

Heather’s Pumpkin Bread INGREDIENTS:

3/4 cup of butter 2-2/3 cups of sugar 4 eggs, beaten 1 15-ounce can of pumpkin 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder 2 teaspoons of baking soda 1-1/2 teaspoon of salt 1 teaspoon of cinamon 1 teaspoon of nutmeg 1 teaspoon of ginger 2/3 cup of water 1 teaspoon of pumpkin spice 16 ounces of walnuts, chopped

1 box of raisins 3-1/2 cups of flour

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the butter and sugar together followed by the eggs. Add the remaining ingredients. Mix well so the nuts and raisins don’t sink to the bottom when pouring the batter into small loaf af pans. Bake for one hour.

Standard Tap By Phyllis Stein-Novack R e s ta u r a n t R e v i e w e r

M

ore than 10 years ago, a pub opened in Northern Liberties that was to change the course of city pub fare. Its name is Standard Tap. I clearly recall my first meal at Standard Tap on a hot summer evening. Edward and I enjoyed a unique experience. Edward and I recently returned to Standard Tap. I am pleased to report that the fare — from the grilled octopus to sausage and kraut — was a fine experience all around. We dined at the bar where Brendan, the bartender, helped us to select a beer to go with dinner. After a few samples, we ordered a Yards Brawler, a dark, malty brew, which drank well with dinner. The atmosphere at Standard Tap is still funky. There’s a lot of wood trim, a jukebox and upstairs outdoor seating. Dinner began with grilled octopus ($13), which consisted of a generous portion of mollusk marinated in vinegar and grilled. It was slightly charred on the outside and creamy inside. The entrée was set upon a bed of nicely dressed greens and included pickled carrots and cauliflower. It set off a marvelous mix of tastes and textures. Next up, was the duck confit ($15). “We cannot take it off the menu because everyone asks for it,” Brendan told us. I’m glad it is still there. A bed of fresh greens was dressed in a light balsamic vinaigrette. A hefty duck leg, which had been marinating in its own fat for a while, was nestled on the greens along with a crisp crouton. The skin was crisp and the meat was so juicy and tender it just about fell off the bone. Coffee/Café/Sweets

Autumn is here and the good chefs at Standard Tap have added bratwurst and sauerkraut to the bill of fare. Edward and I both adore it and this version ($17) was tops. A spicy, fat bratwurst and a delicious fat venison sausage were the stars of the dish. By fat, I mean they were plump, not fatty. The sausages were served in a round, glazed piece of earthenware — the kind found throughout Portugal. It is a marvelous cooking and serving vessel. The sauerkraut tasted homemade and the mashed potatoes, which Edward asked to be served in a separate dish, were the perfect tasty foils to this fall classic. I love creamy, hot mashed potatoes and rated these a 10. I noticed mussels and sausages were on the menu, so was steamed clams. I was in the mood for clams so I asked if I could have clams in place of mussels. I am glad I did. My dinner ($17) was bursting with flavor. I don’t know how many top neck clams were in the earthenware dish — more than a dozen, I suspect. They were perfectly steamed in a flavorful broth, studded with white wine, natural cooking juices, chopped parsley and garlic. I spooned on the sauce and made a trip to Portugal even though I was in Philadelphia. Slices of spicy chorizo were included, which added flavor and texture. Two thick slabs of crusty bread came with dinner. I toted much of the sauce home, including some chorizo, which I intended to turn into dinner with the addition of shrimp and sautéed peppers and onions. This practice is not unusual for me. If a sauce is so perfect and the serving gener-

ous, I will take it home. I’ve done this on a few occasions and Brendan did not think it odd at all. The all American desserts run the gamut from ice cream to a Philadelphia sticky bun. Although we were well sated, a sticky bun ($7) was wrapped to go for breakfast the next morning. I warmed it up, brewed some coffee and greeted the day with a smile on my face. Service was excellent. Brendan entered our dishes on a computer and runners brought our meal to us as soon as it left the pots and pans. Each dish was freshly made and piping hot.

Standard Tap still sets the standard for pub fare. There are just a few in the city that can match it. Three nostalgic tips of the toque to Standard Tap. SPR

Hungry to

help

Besides pleasing the palates of his customers, a Queen Village-based chef is making a difference beyond his restaurants by supporting multiple charitable causes, including one impacting his young daughter. By Phyllis Stein-Novack Food Columnist

A

mong the first to respond to the clarion call to volunteer for charity and fundraising events are the diverse men and women of Philadelphia’s hospitality industry. On a crisp autumn day 24 years ago, I sat with a group of colleagues and planned Philadelphia’s first fundraiser for Share Our Strength, a national nonprofit that raises much-needed funds for the hungry. When I called Giuseppe and his brother Luca Sena, they said count us in. What would you like us to do? Three months later, on a bitterly-cold January night, Giuseppe set up a beautiful station, which featured roast veal with roasted potatoes. Across the room, his brother and “Papa” Sena were in charge of the dolci. I never saw so many Italian sweets laden on one huge table in my life. The evening was a rousing success. We raised not just money but awareness of the plight of hunger not only in Philadelphia, but throughout the country. Last week, I lunched with Giuseppe at La Famiglia, his award-winning Old City restaurant. We reminisced about the first Share Our Strength event and the charity work he and his family have been deeply involved in ever since they came to South Philadelphia from their native Naples. Giuseppe said they came to South Philadelphia because his uncle was already here. “I was 17 years old and learned English at South Philadelphia High School, [2101 S. Broad St.,]” he said. “I loved it here. It was so multi-cultural. For me it was the New World. I wanted to be part of it.” Giuseppe, a Queen Village resident, owns Le Castagne near Rittenhouse

Square and plans to open Ecco, 13th and Locust streets, a casual mid-priced trattoria in mid-November. Luca owns Panorama and Revolution House in Old City. The Sena family always took part in the yearly Share Our Strength fundraiser. But sometimes it takes a tragedy to compel a man to push himself further into the realm of raising money for scientific research. Giuseppe and his wife Claudia welcomed their daughter Federica Maria at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania Jan. 10, 2003. “When I heard her — the sound of a live person — I burst into tears,” Giuseppe said. “I will never forget it.” The baby underwent all the usual tests given to newborns. She had blood screenings and the like. Two days after she was born, mother and daughter were released from the hospital. “Federica was baptized at the church in Queen Village two months later. There was a major snowstorm and three feet of snow on the ground,” Giuseppe said. Since her birth, Claudia noticed her daughter was not nursing properly and not gaining weight. The pediatrician took some tests. “I received a phone call from the pediatrician around 7 a.m. one morning,” Giuseppe said. “She said, ‘I have bad news. Your daughter has cystic fibrosis.’” Cystic fibrosis is a disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. Federica was taken to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia at 9 a.m. that day for more tests. Although he has raised money for the March of Dimes, the Liver Foundation and has donated a holiday dessert event for the homeless with City Councilwoman Jannie Blackwell, Giuseppe has held an event and silent auction raising more than

$500,000 for cystic fibrosis over the past eight years. “I am fortunate because Federica has a mild case of cystic fibrosis,” Giuseppe said. “I thought ‘oh my God, she cannot die before me.’” The Sena family now has become an influential part of the restaurant scene in Philadelphia. In 1976, just in time for the bicentennial celebrations, “Papa” Sena along with sons chef Gino, Luca and Giuseppe, opened La Famiglia. Right now, Giuseppe is featuring the ’76 lunch menu at ’76 prices.

■ Veal with Prosciutto di Parma ■ and Parmigiano-Reggiano Ingredients:

8 3-ounce veal slices, pounded very thin, patted dry with paper towels. Flour for dredging Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste 1/2 cup of extra-virgin olive oil 1 pound of mixed mushrooms of choice, sliced 2 fat garlic cloves, sliced 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter 1 cup of dry white wine About 6 ounces of chicken stock 2 large, thin slices Prosciutto di Parma, cut into 8 pieces (4 from each slice) 8 large shards of Parmigiano-Reggiano, peeled with a vegetable peeler from a large block of cheese Italian parsley leaves, chopped

Directions: Place the flour on a large plate. Season to taste with the salt and pepper. Dredge each piece of the veal in the flour, shaking off the excess. Place the veal on a large platter. Heat the olive oil over medium in a large skillet. Add the mushrooms and sauté for a few minutes. Add the garlic and sauté until the mushrooms give up their liquid, for about five minutes more. Remove the mushrooms to a bowl using a slotted spoon. Add the veal and sauté for about two minutes on each side. Remove the veal to the platter and cover with aluminum foil. Add the butter to the skillet, scraping up the brown bits with a wooden spoon. Add the wine and stock, raise the heat to high and boil the stock until it thickens, for about three minutes. Return the mushrooms to the skillet. Add the veal and top each slice with the Prosciutto di Parma and Parmigiano-Reggiano. Cover the skillet and cook on low heat just until the cheese melts. Place the veal on a pretty serving platter and top with the parsley. Serves four. Note from Phyllis: I would serve the veal with roasted potatoes and garlic spinach.
