s a merchandise team associate, Glenicesha Landley will not need to address all of the 80,000 square feet at Burlington Coat Factory, 424 W.

The 21-year-old and dozens of her colleagues beemed with enthusiasm Nov. 17, as the retail facility held its soft opening and Charity Day celebration.

Feast of burden

Two East Passyunk Crossing residents are helping 16 struggling families to enjoy savory Thanksgiving meals. By Joseph Myers R e v i e w s ta f f w r i t e r

“I

hope the employees know they are going to have to restock when we are done,” Millie Ruffino said as she emptied three shelves of instant potatoes at ShopRite, 29 Snyder Ave., Monday. A resident of the 1100 block of Emily Street and the East Passyunk Crossing Civic Association and Town Watch treasurer, Ruffino marked her fifth year of sating area households by again blessing the Pennsport store with an example of her humanitarianism. Displaying equal altruism, Josephine Cardillo, an inhabitant of the 1800 block of South 11th Street and East Passyunk Crossing’s recording secretary, helped Ruffino to fill five carts with food that the Philadelphia Access Center, 1832 S. 11th St., soon after delivered to 16 disadvantaged families comprising 74 individuals. For three years, the center, whose numerous means to reflect its Christian identity include procuring provisions for hungry homes, has assisted the civic’s charitable giving committee. Ruffino and Cardillo received its list of in-crisis clans Friday and determined needs Saturday. “It just feels good to help people, no matter their situation,” Cardillo, holding a sheet bearing sought items, said.

Cardella: The real Thanksgiving story

Few people know the Spaniards celebrated Thanksgiving long before the pilgrims and Native Americans. The Spaniards were known as being very cruel to indigenous populations (that may be how they came up with roasting natives on an open fire instead of turkeys). By Tom Cardella

CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER John C. Gallo

To the Editor: I wish to take exception to the letter written by George Munce (“Eviction notice,� Nov. 17). His concern as to what children may think about the Occupy Philly site is not a worry. Actually, it would be a good idea to take children there to see the occupation. It is a wonderful example of what a democracy is, in fact. Over the years, many people have lost their lives to have a country where peaceful occupations such as Occupy Philly can be held. Our founding fathers not only thought of peaceful resistance as a right that citizens must have, but as a duty that Americans must exercise when they feel the government is not doing right by the people. It is a good civic lesson for children to understand democracy is not always nice and neat. You want nice and neat? You will find that in dictatorships and police states. Democracy is a messy, inconvenient, noisy, and at times, an annoying form of government. So far it is the best form humans have developed. You cannot always learn that in a textbook. Children and adults could learn a lot by going to Dilworth Plaza and listening to the participants discussing, disagreeing and voting on various issues. So far, our city leaders are way ahead of those in Oakland and New York City. Turning violent on unarmed peaceful demonstrators cannot be justified. Labor unions have talked to the occupiers and told them about the large number of jobs that will be created by the work on Dilworth Plaza. Hopefully the occupiers will see this as a good thing and agree to relocate. To quote Margaret Mead: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.�

message out — that the gap between the rich and everyone else has gotten out of control, the country is in danger, and that this must change. I bet the kids will understand. Actions like Occupy Philly are how brave Americans won so much that we take for granted: The 40hour work week, the right for women to vote, civil rights and more. We should be proud that the tradition of free speech is alive in Philadelphia, where it was written into our highest law, the Constitution. But is it pretty? No. It’s beautiful! Rich Garella South Philadelphia

Money: The villain of doom To the Editor:

Government didn’t force banks to give mortgages to people without means (“Occupying a different street� Nov. 11); the banks did it themselves and Wall Street was complicit. The government didn’t shut down oil wells in the gulf; they were shut down because they were leaking oil. Government didn’t assault our health care; insurance companies did and were backed by Wall Street. The

V I E W

Comment at www.southphillyreview.com/opinion

health of Americans was put in jeopardy by the greed of insurance companies with the help of Wall Street. Farmers and fishermen weren’t put in peril by the government (who actually helps them with subsidies). They were hurt by the banks that lent them money. Wall Street has had a hand in all the financial problems ailing America today. If you want manufacturing jobs to stay in America, then you have to make it difficult for business to take those jobs to countries where they pay 75 cents an hour to employees who have no health care at all. America would have to break its addiction to cheap goods. Jobs go overseas because it allows for the biggest profit for the manufacturer. Government did not corrupt colleges or schools; money did and Wall Street is money. Government is not the root of all evil, money is — remember the old adage? Finally, our Constitution and Declaration of Independence are not bible based. The founding fathers were against religion of any kind being a part of our government.

Service denied A parcel deliveryman was assaulted in East Passyunk Crossing after refusing to hand over a package without seeing identification Friday afternoon. The 48-year-old UPS driver parked his truck at 1:05 p.m. on the 900 block of McKean Street, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. As he was readying for a delivery at the back of his vehicle, a man asked if there was a package for a specific address on the 800 block of McKean. The worker retrieved the requested parcel and asked for the gentleman’s identification, but he did not have it. The UPS employee refused to hand him the package without ID. Then the man hopped into the truck and demanded the item, Tolliver said. When he still objected, the man pushed the deliveryman on the front dashboard and struck him several times before fleeing empty-handed east on McKean. The UPS driver suffered minor injuries to his head, jaw and left ear, Tolliver said. The attacker was described as black and 6 foot; having a medium build and short hair; and wearing a red jacket with a black hood.

SOUTH PHILLY REVIEW I NOVEMBER 24, 2011

A man was beaten and mugged on his way to see a Flyers game last week. The 23-year-old took the bus to 10th Street and Oregon Avenue at 6:25 p.m. Nov. 17. He traveled down 10th Street en route to the Wells Fargo Center, 3601 S. Broad St., but while on the 3000 block of South 10th Street, three men pushed him to the ground, and punched him twice in the face, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. One of the offenders said, “Give me everything or I’ll stab you.” The man complied and handed over his cell phone, iPod and wallet, which contained ID, credit cards and $10, Tolliver said. The thieves fled north on 10th and the victim fled to the Holiday Inn, 900 Packer Ave., to call police. While he suffered a swollen nose, he did not seek medical treatment, Tolliver said. The men were described as 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-8 and thin. Two were described as black and one was described as white. One of the former was wearing a dark gray hoody. To report information, call South Detectives’ tip line at 215-685-1635 or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

THANKSGIVING WEEKEND IS

The offender approached a teller at Prudential Savings Bank, 1834 W. Oregon Ave. at 1:35 p.m. Nov. 13, handed her a blank deposit slip and said “give me all your large,” Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The employee pushed the panic button and the offender walked out of the bank and into a green, 1999 Volvo station wagon with a Pennsylvania Closed-circuit tag of HLV-3566 that video headed south on 19th Street. The getaway vehicle was reported stolen earlier in the day to the 3rd District, Tolliver said. The suspect was described as white, age 30 to 40 years old, 6 foot, 215 to 250 pounds and wearing a green or gray skully hat, sunglasses, a white T-shirt, blue jeans and tan boots.

This is the rst in a three-part series previewing the Jan. 1 Fancy Brigade Finale Show at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

The march to Arch

Celebrating its 15th year at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, the final preparations are in the works for the Fancy Brigade Finale Show. By Mark Moss Review Special Contributor

W

ho are the Fancy Brigades? The year 1960 was a tumultuous year. A year that the world turned from the Norman Rockwell innocence of the 1950s to increased global tension. That same year, the Soviet Union shot down an American U-2 spy plane. President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed into law the Civil Rights Act. While the entire world was coming to grips with this newfound turmoil, Philadelphia found comfort within its city limits in the controlled chaos of the Mummers Parade. The Mummers Parade is a yearly event dating back to colonial days, with roots in Greek, Roman and Egyptian history, but its traditions are more commonly related to Northern European settlers. In Philadelphia, this must-see attraction for residents and tourists alike was officially organized as a parade in 1901. The Fancy Brigades at one time were part of the larger Fancy Division, also referred to as the mother club. While existing long before, they officially came into existence in 1947 and are now, one of the five divisions making up the Philadelphia Mummers. The Fancy Brigades recently celebrated its 51st anniversary as an organized association. In ’60, unlike the worldwide confusion going on around them, the brigades decided to band together and establish the Fancy Brigade Association. Organizing the individual clubs under a unit of solidarity enabled the groups to have a singular voice, assuring themselves the best possible avenue to prosper. Over the years, Fancy Brigade performances evolved from simple, themed presentations with an emphasis on beautiful costumes, to pitch-perfect performances organized around massive floats The brigades continued to grow at impressive lengths and in ’77, they made an unprecedented decision that would change not only their destiny but that of the entire parade. They decided to break away from the mother clubs and petition the city for a charter and form their own division: The Fancy Brigade Division. The newly formed brigade division’s shows grew larger and more spectacular. In

Come New Year’s Day, the Mummers’ Fancy Brigades will be strutting their stuff in front of a packed house of fans and judges. the ’90s, aside from its performing membership, a typical Brigade show would have an exhausting routine, surrounded by building size floats. With shows on a grander scale, it now became a problem to move them up South Broad Street for the long trek to City Hall. In ’97, the Fancy Brigade Association sought a solution by moving the festivities to the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Opened four years earlier, it had ample room, was rarely in use during the last week of the year and was a perfect fit for the lavish productions. With the oversized props being susceptible to inclement weather and hazardous winds, the brigades, together, voted to move the show indoors. The relocation also offered comfortable, reserved seating, out of the elements, with the insurance of a guaranteed show. THE YEARLY FANCY Brigades’ shows are masterpieces of entertainment. So much goes into the execution of the event that members have become experts at juggling work schedules and home life, along with children’s soccer games and school activities. The planning starts almost immediately after New Year’s Day. The skill behind the designing, costuming, choreography, lush musical orchestrations and

float preparation would make many professional designers, music coordinators and architects envious. The floats utilized in their shows each year, rival any set or backdrop from a multimillion-dollar Broadway show. The brilliance of the brigades lies in its building and use of props. These floats are designed by everyday, blue-collar people, yet are feats of engineering genius that many would probably spend thousands of dollars and years of education on acquiring the knowledge and know-how to build. With the massive scale of brigade shows growing, the move indoors was an inevitable remedy and a much-needed boost to the city’s economy. As the Convention Center location was secured, the local tourism bureaus, as well as hotels and area restaurants jumped on board, offering packages that included New Year’s Eve dinners, parties and overnight stays, along with the added bonus of tickets for a guaranteed, reserved seat to the indoor spectacle. This also offered greater awareness of the Fancy Brigades, the Mummers as a whole and the City of Philadelphia as a must-stop destination for tourists. Brigade members spend the entire year planning, drilling, costume fitting and building. Some see Christmas as a speed bump on the way to MummersFest.

MummersFest is an event held every year for the general public from Dec. 28 to 31. During that time, tourists, fans, family and friends gain access to the behind-thescenes preparations for what will be the Fancy Brigades’ New Year’s Day Mummers Finale. The public gets to see how hard the brigades and its membership have worked all year to put on one of the most spectacular shows on the planet. One of the most important things about being in the Fancy Brigades is the time spent with family and friends. Most brigades are close-knit, family-oriented organizations. Families spend their entire lives as part of one club. Lifelong friendships never seem to waiver. As the year progresses, entire families work alongside each other, sewing, building and bringing to life, themes that months earlier were just an idea on a piece of paper. Sharing the experience of creating an entire show from scratch with family and friends — a bunch of nonprofessionals, is worth its weight in gold. While participants are passionate about the parade and the shows they put on, they get the greatest gift in the world. It’s a great choice to share the passion of Mummery with their children and keep them in a safe and positive place. It gives each person involved the opportunity to learn a skill and have access to unlimited creativeness. But, no feeling in the world is greater than, as the curtain opens and the show begins, the rising, unequaled pride of seeing a float turn, holding the joyful children of family and friends and seeing their fist pumping in the air, doing their best to contain their excitement as they execute their first routine as a member of the Fancy Brigades. Truly, nothing can be more satisfying. Just as it was 51 years ago, there is turmoil in the world today. But, fans of the Fancy Brigades, as well as the members themselves, can take comfort in knowing they can escape the craziness and find solace in the never-ending tradition within the Fancy Brigades.

News

BURLINGTON continued from page 1 1980 until Jan. 9. Winter infrastructure repairs readied Burlington’s arrival, and last week’s gathering proved the spot is poised to pulse with activity, as the holiday-shopping season begins. A resident of the 2300 block of Wilder Street, Langley gave the powerful lights competition, as her smile showed her appreciation for leaving behind her time on public assistance. “Because of the lack of jobs and the fact that I am a senior in college, I applied for welfare early this year,” the graduate of Edwin M. Stanton School, 1700 Christian St., and North Philly’s Dobbins Career and Technical Education High School, said. Required to enroll with an Employment, Advancement, Retention Network center, the mother of two and former employee at Walmart, 1675 S. Columbus Boulevard, secured aid through the Philadelphia Workforce Development Corp., a Center City nonprofit that annually invests more than $100 million in employment and training initiatives to provide services for unemployed and underemployed individuals. “After five days of training, I had three interviews planned,” the Temple University criminal justice major said. All three, including Rite Aid, 801 S. Ninth St., hired her, with her feeling that Burlington would give her the most occasions to grow leading her to pick it. “I am desiring a career, not a job,” Langley, who also holds certification from ServSafe, a culinary arts training program, said. The day cooked up a host of memorable events for Langley. Operations commenced at noon and brought a solid stream of patrons into the massive establishment. Burlington, which will celebrate 40 years of retail existence next year, acknolwedged the Point Breeze native and the other hires, honored Charity Day campaign contributors and launched its Burlington Gives Back partnership with Fashion Delivers Charitable Foundations Inc., which began to grace destitute families and disaster victims with apparel and housewares in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina destroyed portions of the southern United States, Burlington contacted organizations to gauge interest in securing donations from their supporters last month. Having made $5 pledges, donors received admission coupons and earned 10 percent off their purchases, with full distribution of the proceeds going to the participating bodies. Two hours into the festivities, Mayor Michael Nutter, Burlington’s President and CEO Thomas Kingsbury and Fashion Delivers’ Executive Director Gail Garramone greeted Langley and many of the 129 other

new employees. “This day is about jobs, jobs, jobs,” Nutter said, projecting his voice as buyers buzzed about expressing satisfaction with the store’s selection. “...Burlington has given folks a sense of hope, an opportunity, a job and the ability to take care of themselves and their families. I can’t think of a better present that anyone would want to receive.” After issuing congratulations to his workers, Kingsbury spoke of Burlington’s philanthropic history, which includes coat drives and fundraising efforts for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. He also proudly announced the first oc-

tet of charities that his and Garramone’s personnel will assist, with Ready, Willing & Able, 1211 Bainbridge St., which has employed hundreds of men who have struggled to lead drug-free lives and overcome poverty, the lone area selection. Langley, who before joining the local store’s roster of helpers received training at the Center City Burlington, so impressed her supervisors with her pre-employment work ethic that she earned the honor of joining the trio of leaders for the ribboncutting ceremony. “Now everybody go shop!” she said. AS THEIR ESTEEMED customers sated physical desires by feasting on cake and cookies and fiscal wishes by adding items to their carts, some workers marched out into the cold to unload boxes of accessories, apparel, baby products and housewares from

Nearly two dozen employees, top, braved dipping temperatures and increasing winds as they formed a human conveyor belt to help charities to transport goods into Burlington Coat Factory. Bearing the “Fashion Delivers” insignia, numerous boxes, bottom, contained welcomed goods. S ta f f P h o t o s b y G r e g B e z a n i s

a company truck. Thrilled representatives from the charities welcomed the offerings from their chilly hands and shared warm grins with the employees, who danced to try to stay heated. Sales figures for Burlington have never needed to worry about being figuratively toasty. Its second quarter report, the company’s most recent release, shows that total net sales hit $793.3 million, an 8.9 percent

increase over last year’s second segment. “We are a growth company,” Kingsbury said as he inspected the store, one of the 462 that Burlington operates in 44 states and Puerto Rico. As for continuing his company’s identity in Philadelphia by establishing a store that replaces another retail giant in Kmart, he deemed South Philly an apt locale. “This city is a thriving metropolis,” he said, “and we look to give people quality. Coming here was a natural fit for us.” Kingsbury hopes families, especially those bent on exercising economic responsibility, see his company’s latest move as a means to look sharp without fretting over costs. His company’s website boasts of offering merchandise at prices up to 70 percent below those at many department stores. Well aware of that fact, Gina Romeo eagerly made her donation and obtained an entrance coupon. “I love the great deals,” the resident of the 2800 block of South 13th Street said as she looked for slippers. A lively patron, Romeo received shopping support from her mother, three daughters, sister and granddaughter. “The merchandise is great and is going to make me a common customer,” Romeo, who gushed upon finding aesthetically pleasing footwear, said. If she comes to frequent Burlington, which officially opened Friday, Romeo will certainly see Langley, who after distributing sugary goods, resumed her normal duties of placing merchandise in the showroom and setting up clothing displays. The young woman is eager to provide for her children, son Amar’e and daughter Destiny, the latter a student at Delaphaine McDaniel School, 1801 S. 22nd St. Though she possessed nerves when holding the ribbon and interacting with Nutter, Langley has no fears about the future. “I’m here to make Burlington and myself better,” she said.

News vehicle began. Always looking to address quality of life issues, Cardillo deemed the center a great ally, as its roster of social services matches up with the association’s ambition to give the neighborhood’s dwellers self-sufficiency. She and Ruffino traveled to the center following their caloric crusade and organized their purchases on a table sturdy enough to support their mass. The ladies beat the turkey suppliers to the location, but the complete gifts met the families that afternoon. Though they did not perform the distribution themselves, the helpers nonetheless enjoyed their tasks. “We are so grateful to our members and neighborhood restaurants that help us to raise funds,” Ruffino said. Her purchasing partner adopted a reflective attitude. “Anytime we relieve someone’s unease,” Cardillo said, “we feel so blessed.” SPR Josephine Cardillo and Millie Ruffino, second and third from left, received $150 for their civic’s order from ShopRite owner James Colligas, right. P h o t o b y R o b To r n e y

SHOPPING continued from page 1 Most of the center’s selections reside within her civic group’s expanse that spans Broad to Eighth streets from Tasker Street to Snyder Avenue, though she and Ruffino have gone to other South Philly sections and to Kensington. “We have no problem stepping outside of our boundaries,” Ruffino, who along with Cardillo and events and marketing chair Pat Pitt graced the recipients with the goods themselves for the first four years, said. A prior commitment kept Pitt, of the 1900 block of South Sartain Street, from joining her colleagues, but the ladies’ ambition remained fervent. ShopRite, whose Partners In Caring program has helped the charitable endeavors of the CATCH Specialized Care Facility, 521-23 Snyder Ave.; The Doe Fund, 1211 Bainbridge St.; My Brother’s House, 609 S. 15th St.; Philabundance, 3616 S. Galloway St.; and St. Gabriel Food Cupboard, 2917 Dickinson St., waived its restrictions on purchasing set quantities of products for the pair. Sweet potatoes became their carts’ first companions, producing delightful thuds as the women loaded 25 cans. After their yams addition, knowing the center would help by acquiring turkeys, they found the perfect poultry complement — gravy. Fifty-eight cans later, the duo pursued one of the kings in the carbohydrate hierarchy — boxed stuffing. “We have a scientific system,” Cardillo said of making apt choices quickly. She and Ruffino also have excellent neighbors. More than two dozen of them donated funds, so the figures arrived

with a $300 budget. The morning crowd, though cramped, made no hubbub, as holiday spirit tempered any frustration. The mood also reinforced for Ruffino why she participates. “There are so many people who are too poor to be rich and others who are too rich to be poor,” she said. “This is our way of filling in some of the needs of the community.” She and Cardillo stationed their first fertile cart at the front of the store and busied themselves with introducing cranberry sauce, instant potatoes, green beans, corn and rolls to the second. They found just enough room to add 13 bags of McIntosh apples and 12 of navel oranges before sending their second container to the head of the building. “Now it’s time for pies,” Ruffino said as she wheeled another cart to the aromatic bakery section. Thanksgiving staples, pumpkin pies appealed to her and Cardillo, but only apple and blueberry versions adorned the display area. The two worked their charm and had 25 tempting pumpkin pies brought from the workers’ area. “We’re done,” Cardillo said. “Let’s get in line.” AMONG THE CITY’S civics, the Cardillo’s five-year-old entity, with Darren Fava, of the 1100 block of Emily Street and Joseph F. Marino, of the 1900 block of South Jessup Street, as co-chairs, has positioned itself as a neighborhood titan. The Greater Philadelphia Area Coat Drive benefits from its philanthropy every January, with 68 slightly worn or new coats helping to combat the cold last winter. A children’s book fair at St. Nicholas of Tolentine School, 913 Pierce St., proves its education-

al advocacy, and the impending Christmas season will give an ultimate symbol of its goodwill. Annunciation B.V.M., 1511 S. 10th St.; Epiphany of Our Lord, 1121 Jackson St.; and St. Nicholas churches provide East Passyunk Crossing with the names of needy families throughout the year, and the civic tends to the units by endowing them with gift cards for use in pharmacies, supermarkets, toy stores and other establishments and with clothes and toys. “I have cried on occasions when becoming aware of the families’ joy,” Ruffino said of the Christmas benevolence. Marino joined his dear friends briefly Monday and lauded their natures. “I am amazed at their diligence and hard work,” he said. “They are an example to other EPX board members and all nonprofit boards in South Philly.” Marino also dubbed them “excellent models of volunteerism.” Such figures usually need to exercise patience, and the ladies had their chance to prove persistent as they positioned their three carts in the checkout line. The adventure’s 44 bags of food required them to grab two more carts for safe transport out of the store. As Ruffino tended to the bagging, Cardillo unburdened the carts. The former received a great surprise as the final items hit the belt, with store owner James Colligas greeting and presenting her with $150 to put toward the order. “This is fantastic,” Cardillo said. “Thank you so much.” “I am glad we can help out,” Colligas said. “Good luck.” With everything scanned, Cardillo and Ruffino peered at the pre-donation total, $449.95. Minus Colligas’ offering, the amount came to $299.45, a budgetary bonus. “We are so grateful to ShopRite for its help,” Ruffino said as the 20-minute exit ended and the more rapid loading of her

POLICE REPORT continued from page 7 Dinnertime intrusion Three armed men forced their way inside a Newbold home and robbed a man Friday. As the 26-year-old unlocked his front door, the trio pushed him inside the dwelling on the 2000 block of South Bouvier Street as they held firearms to his body at 5:40 p.m., Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. They took his Blackberry, valued at $510, and $50 from the man before fleeing the home in an unknown direction. The man was not harmed, Tolliver said. The intruders were described as wearing black hoodies and dark blue bandanas over their faces One was described as black, 6 foot and armed with a black revolver. The other two were described as black and 5-foot-11, with one armed with a black revolver and the other with a black semiautomatic firearm. To report information, call South Detectives’ tip line at 215-685-1635 or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

Dollar heist A man was beaten after refusing to give his attackers a buck in Passyunk Square Sunday evening. A 21-year-old was walking along the 900 block of Dickinson Street at 7:15 p.m. when a trio requested $1, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. When the man said, “no,” the group punched and kicked him with one taking his cell. The victim ran south to Federal Street. His attackers fled in an unknown direction. A medic transported the man to Methodist Hospital where he was treated for cuts and bruise to his face and rib pain and released, Tolliver said. The suspects were described as age 21 and thin. One was described as black, 5-foot-4 and wearing a black hoody; another was described as black and wearing a black shirt and pants; and the third was described as white and wearing a black and white striped shirt. To report information, call South Detectives’ tip line at 215-685-1635 or visit phillypolice.com/forms. SPR Contact Managing Editor Amanda L. Snyder at asnyder@southphillyreview.com or ext. 117.

city citty clean. ci cle leaan “I was emceeing for a band and the band was being contacted by the mayor to do the sound — they were promoting the UnLitter [Us] campaign,” Love, who hails from 15th and Dickinson streets, said. “The band was Jazz Guardian. I was just listening; they were providing the music. The campaign message, what it was about, and just being a writer and rapper I thought I could lend a little of my talent to the campaign. I definitely believe in the city and taking pride in it and people taking pride in where they live.” Love, a member of Tuff Crew, which is regarded as one of Philadelphia’s first rap groups, was part of the citywide greening campaign launch. The UnLitter Us initiative, spearheaded by the Philadelphia Streets Department, included a South Philly rally Oct. 15 at which Love performed the song “Come Clean, Go Green” that he wrote for

the movement. “During the endeavor, seeing the mayor speak about it, I wanted to do my part to get it promoted. I was actually freestyling a lot of different points out there with the band and I told the commissioner of the Streets Department [Clarena I.W. Tolson, a native of 26th and Federal streets,] I could put together a song to promote the key elements of the campaign,” the 44-year-old said. The musician, who will continue to perform at upcoming rallies for the campaign, hopes that the lyrics will help people “embrace the song as a theme song for the movement,” he said. “It comes up in different things or people that were relevant and relative to the campaign like gas, traffic, pollution, the recycle rewards to get people involved with the recycling. I just tried to implement the points into the song.” Love said Mayor Michael Nutter and the Streets Department really enjoyed what he

continued from page 21 came up with. He is happy to stay a part of the campaign and spread this message, along with other positive ideas he pushes in his professional recordings. [In the suburbs,] everyone played a part in keeping the neighborhood clean and if we can get enough people to embrace the cause, not only cleaning trash, but to try to clean our act, it will spill into other areas, too,” Love, who wrote the campaign song in three days, said. “Addressing things like violence and crime, it will crossover into that sort of stuff. It’s not primarily focused on the trash removal and maintenance — just cleaning up our act and getting ourselves situated economically to look within to find the innate talent we have.” LOVE ATTENDED SOUTH Philly High School, 2101 S. Broad St., before finishing up his schooling at Germantown High. Today, his mother, Bobbi Love, and grandmother, Evelyn Estes, still live in the neighborhood where he spent his years in as a youth. “I got involved with Tuff Crew after high school. I did a lot of music with them,” Love, who now lives in Montgomery County, said. “About three years after high

school we had a lot of success and we recently got back together.” Going separate ways in the early 1990s to pursue other projects, Tuff Crew recently began working on a new release that they hope to put out early next year. “It’s going to be a throwback to original hip-hop style, with old local artists. It’s pretty much a throwback for the fans. We sold 7.5 million records and we’re still selling them. Fans have been asking us to give them unreleased as well as new music,” he said. While working on the new release with Tuff Crew, Love also has been involved since earlier this year with the group F.A.M.L.E.E, which stands for fresh alternative music, listen, enjoy the music, embrace the message. “The F.A.M.L.E.E project is R&B and rap. The message behind that project is to see people as family,” Love said, adding that the group is branching into other genres to explore its sound. “Right now, there are so many different messages being spread and [we look to] provide inspiration and for injecting hope into some young people.” The group’s mission is paralleled by Love’s other endeavors, which included a break from music but not one from spread-

ing positive words. “I took some time away and went into schools, high schools, teaching character education,” Love said. “We would go into the classrooms and have a seminar on character education, like developing social skills, character skills, conflict resolution and promoting self esteem.” His teaching work was made possible by the nonprofit People to Peo-

S ta f f P h o t o b y G r e g B e z a n i s

ple, who were exposed to Love’s messages through the music and afforded him this opportunity. Whether it be through music or mentoring — though Love finds it hard to draw a distinction between these two — his message to youth is: “Believe in yourself and shine.” Now that he has become a part of the UnLitter Us campaign, Love is focused on promoting that gospel, as well. In fact, his involvement has had an impact on his immediate family. “I definitely encourage my children [to think about keeping their city clean],” Love said of Christian, 8, Sabriya, 16, and Vevin, 21. “They are inspired with my involvement in the campaign and it has opened their eyes to being mindful about not littering.” For Love, who has his hand in many projects at the moment, being able to encourage his community to take pride in its city has been more rewarding than he could have imagined. “It’s been inspiring for me just to see how many people are responding to the cleanup initiative,” he said. “It is appealing to learn through rap. We learn a lot through songs and I thought that I could, myself, get people going real good.” SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/news/lifestyles.

The real Thanksgiving story

F

The portrayal of Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams) is catching some early Oscar buzz in the Best Actress race.

R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer

O

ne of the most blissful pleasures to be found at the movies this year is Michelle Williams’ performance as Marilyn Monroe in “My Week with Marilyn,” a British drama that charts the London production of “The Prince and the Showgirl,” Monroe’s 1957 collaboration with Sir Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh). Following some palpable reluctance in a glitzy opening number, Williams, with a wink, a flash, and a whole lot of dead-on girlish ignorance, introduces yet another facet of her exceptional acting talent, serving up the enchantment of an icon and the unspoken complexity of a rich character. “Shall I be her?” Williams coos before shimmying and blowing kisses to the press, an underscoring of Monroe’s triple identity as lost soul, celebrity and on-screen persona, all three of which Williams nails. It’s through no aid of the material that Williams triumphs so completely, as “Marilyn” is otherwise a drastically unspecial affair, jammed with made-for-TV clichés and stock characterizations. Based on two diaries by Colin Clark, a “Prince and the Showgirl” production assistant, the film sees a tired coming-of-age tale run parallel with a tired tale of movie-star meltdown, with Clark (Eddie Redmayne) cozying up to Monroe in the good (riverside strolls, playful shop talk) and the bad (drunken sobbing, dozens of failed takes). In a word, it’s garbage, and director Simon Curtis makes a mountain of poor decisions, including adopting a waggish, throwback tone that clashes with the story, and allowing for a lurching editing style that’s strikingly sloppy for a supposed awards contender. Indeed, Williams should handily pick up a Best Actress nod for her work, and due

to casting appropriateness alone, Branagh, in all his effete hamminess, also is poised to be recognized, in the Supporting Actor race. Another standout is the dependably delicious Judi Dench, who characteristically makes gold of her minimal screen time, playing aging actress Sybil Thorndike. But, frankly, Williams is the only reason to catch this undeservedly heralded trifle, living up to what one character says of Monroe herself: “When she gets it right, you just don’t want to look at anyone else.”

Cave of Forgotten Dreams G Available Tuesday With “Cave of Forgotten Dreams,” increasingly prolific master filmmaker Werner Herzog — whose newest documentary, “Into the Abyss,” is already playing in theaters — takes viewers on a haunting and fascinating tour of France’s Chauvet Cave, whose wall drawings are mankind’s oldest known visual art. Presenting a rare opportunity to experience a highly protected space, the film pairs archaeological discovery with Herzog’s trademark existential ponderings.

ew people know the Spaniards celebrated Thanksgiving long before the pilgrims and Native Americans. The Spaniards were known as being very cruel to indigenous populations (that may be how they came up with roasting natives on an open fire instead of turkeys). The holiday became known for the first human paella. In later years, under noted explorer Hernando Cortez, Aztecs were used almost exclusively in paella. ”The Christmas Song,” was first known in Spain as “Aztecs Roasting on an Open Fire.” In 1621, the first Thanksgiving feast took place at Plymouth Plantation (a five-star pilgrim resort). Thanksgiving was a sort of tribute to the Almighty God, so some pilgrims suggested substituting atheists for Aztecs on the roasting spit. The important distinction between pilgrims and puritans is the puritans had no qualms about roasting atheists. After the pilgrims and American Indians passed the peace pipe, everyone was so high that even the atheists were embraced. The more they smoked, the more thankful they became, and no one noticed grandma had forgotten to put the little meatballs in the escarole soup. At the end of the bountiful feast, all of the raviolis had been eaten, but the turkey was practically left untouched. While the fumes from the peace pipe wafted through the crisp, autumn air, one of the American Indian braves put “Purple Haze” on the stereo. Incidentally, not all of the Native Americans were called braves. Several (including one of my descendants) hid in the tepee during raids and came to be called “cowards.” An 8-year-old (a pilgrimette?) wanted to know why everyone called the niblets maize instead of corn, which prompted a lengthy debate. Squanto settled the argument by pointing out the colors of Michigan’s football team are maize and blue. How would it sound if Michigan’s colors were corn and blue? Who would sing their fight song? Then a man, who resembled Garry Shandling and called himself Capt. John Smith, said, “How does it sound to say you are eating maize on the cob?” The argument began all over again. It appeared the day was going to end peacefully until an American Indian brave wearing a Packers jersey got into an argument with a pilgrim decked out in the Detroit Lions’ Honolulu blue and silver over how many times the

Lions would sack Aaron Rogers. That’s when the American Indian wars that lasted until the first Black Friday sale broke out. Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national day of Thanksgiving for Nov. 26, 1863. Some thought Father Abraham’s decision was peculiar since the country was in the midst of the bloody Civil War. In his wisdom, Lincoln pointed out those able men who had coughed up $300 to pay someone else to fight for them, were in a mood to celebrate. A noted historian said Bob Hope entertained Union Army members while the Confederacy opted for Hank Williams Jr. It took Franklin Delano Roosevelt to come up with the idea to make Thanksgiving into the commercial success it is today. In 1939, the U.S. was in the midst of The Great Depression. Republicans were crying out for a tax cut for the wealthy. November had five weeks on the calendar that year. FDR decided henceforth, Thanksgiving would be celebrated on the fourth week in November in order to give merchants more time to sell their goods and increase profits. At that time, there was a quaint notion that it was inappropriate to advertise Christmas sales before Thanksgiving. In fact, no radio stations played Christmas music before the first week in December. The brilliant solution made Thanksgiving come earlier. Major department store owners proposed to celebrate Thanksgiving in July (let’s really extend the Christmas shopping season), but FDR rejected it, along with a proposal to celebrate Christmas twice a year. Republicans were upset the White House was tinkering with a beloved holiday, so they continued to celebrate it Nov. 30. Since a presidential declaration is not binding, Republicans and Democrats celebrated Thanksgiving on different days for the next two years. Independents refused to celebrate it at all. In a grand compromise, both political parties decided to split the difference. In 1941, FDR signed the law to make Thanksgiving an official federal holiday on the fourth Thursday of November. Fox News continues to celebrate Republican Thanksgiving even today and has gone so far as to report the scores of Thanksgiving football games a week late. Football has become a large part of the Thanksgiving celebration despite the protestations of women (except those who inhabit sports bars and wear their favorite team’s jersey). The Lions began hosting a noon Thanksgiving Day game in Detroit in 1934. Why football on Thanksgiving? Turkey contains high amounts of tryptophan. Before football on TV, men tended to gorge on turkey only to fall into a deep coma before the pumpkin pie was served. Now the point spread keeps most of us awake, and that is why we are truly thankful. SPR

T

hese days many people are counting calories, their sugar intake, and, as always, their weight, especially during the holidays. Roberta Kubiak’s Sugarless Rice Pudding is a quick treat with all of the sweetness, but without the extra calories. The resident of the 2100 block of South Hancock Street’s creamy snack prepared using a sugar substitute is perfect for dessert or a midday pick-me-up. And the days following the big meal, a light treat may be in order. SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/food-and-drink/recipes.

Mi Lah Vegetarian By Phyllis Stein-Novack R e s ta u r a n t R e v i e w e r

W

hen I was in graduate school, I wrote a paper on Edward R. Murrow, one of my heroes, who was a consummate journalist. He covered World War II (“This is London”), joined CBS news and was an early television pioneer. George Clooney’s film masterpiece “Good Night and Good Luck” follows Murrow, who went after Sen. Joe McCarthy with a vengeance. McCarthy chaired the witch hunt looking for so-called American communists. “Are you now, or have you ever been a member of the Communist Party?” are probably his most famous words. I am not now, nor have I ever been a vegetarian. I sometimes kid my vegetarian friends, but I confess we enjoy meatless Mondays in our home and I won’t turn up my nose at vegetarian foods. I will try anything once. My sister Sandy ate my heart out as soon as we sat down at Mi Lah Vegetarian. “I don’t know what any of this stuff is,” she said with a sort of bah-humbug tone in her voice. “I’ll let you order.” Mi Lah is a small bi-level BYOB vegetarian/vegan delight near Rittenhouse Square. It is short on atmosphere, but the staff is pleasant and congenial. There is a three-course $11 lunch special with choices. Soup is included and I knew it would warm us up on a cold, blustery afternoon. The cream of cauliflower soup with coconut milk was piping hot and quite tasty. Whoever seasoned it had just the right hand, imparting a balance of flavors. I make this soup at home using half-and-half Coffee/Café/Sweets Caffe Chicco: 2532 S. Broad St., 215-334-3100, $

so it is thick and rich. This soup was a bit thinner but did not disappoint. The butternut squash soup brought a big smile to my sister’s face. “This is delicious,” she said. “You haven’t made this soup in a long time.” I promised to make my cream of butternut squash soup during the Thanksgiving weekend. Edamame dumplings consisted of three plump pillows of silky dough stuffed with healthy mashed edamame, which I thought needed a bit of pepping up. It came with a soy dipping sauce. The mushroom-asparagus roll was most intriguing. A plump oyster mushroom was filled with an asparagus spear and a roasted red pepper strip, coated in seasoned crumbs and fried to a crisp golden brown. It looked like a fat spring roll that had been cut on the diagonal. As I looked at this layered treat, the mushroom looked like chicken breast. I liked the play of tastes and textures in the roll, especially when I dipped it into the plum sauce served on the side. For our entrées, I wanted pho, the comforting soup from Vietnam that can be prepared in a myriad of ways. I selected the burrito for Sandy because I knew she would recognize it. The pho was served in a large deep stainless steel vessel with seasoned-justright vegetarian stock forming the base for the “ham,” tofu and rice noodles. It was so hot, even I had to wait a bit before diving into my lunch. Our waiter brought out a dish of bean sprouts, aromatic Thai basil leaves and a wedge of lime. “What’s that for?” Sandy asked.

“You add the sprouts, Thai basil leaves and a squeeze of lime juice to the soup,” I said. My lunch was so tasty and warming that I did not mind the tofu, although the fake ham was a bit, well, weird. Sandy’s burrito — filled with meaty mushrooms and vegetables topped with a sauce with quite a kick — was really good, but a bit too spicy for her. Black beans and strips of sautéed red pepper strips added color and texture to the dish. Mi Lah also is open for Saturday and Sunday brunch. I adore eggs, but the restaurant is vegan. They serve corn masa cakes and curried polenta cakes with meat substitutes and vegetarian sausages. Dinner is served from 5 to 10 p.m. Mi Lah has a takeout and delivery service.

T h e To q u e S t o p s H e r e

For one niight, curb those holiday shopping plans for a post-Thanksgiving bash. No turkeyys required for this menu inspired by a popular speecialty grocery store. By Phyllis Stein-Novack Food Columnist

N

othing is nicer than receiving an invitation to a Thanksgiving weekend party, especially if you spent hours preparing and hosting the holiday dinner. Let’s not even think about the cleanup. I thought I would eschew my usual what-do-I-do-with-the-leftovers? column and give you recipes from newly published cookbooks that use Trader Joe’s ingredients. Whip up these easy dishes and take them to a party or just enjoy them at home. I have been a regular customer at the Trader Joe’s near my home since its 2003 opening. Andrea Lynn wrote the “I Love Trader Joe’s College Cookbook: 150 Cheap-and-Easy Gourmet Recipes” and Cherie Mercer Twohy penned the “I Love Trader Joe’s Around the World Cookbook: More Than 150 International Recipes Using Foods from the World’s Greatest Grocery Store.” It must be noted that the authors wrote their books without the endorsement or cooperation of Trader Joe’s. Like me, they simply love shopping at this unique grocery store. If you have a college-age son, daughter, relative or friend who is clueless in

the kitchen, the “I Love Trader Joe’s College Cookbook” is an easy and painless introduction on the basics of cooking. The subtitle is “Delicious Dishes You Can’t Eff Up.”

■ Curried Lentil Soup ■ Ingredients: 1/2 tablespoon of Canola oil 1/2 of a 14.5-ounce container Trader Joe’s mirepoix 2 cups of vegetable broth 1 8-ounce package of Trader Joe’s black beluga lentils 1/4 cup of Trader Joe’s Thai Red Curry Sauce 1 tablespoon of curry powder Juice of half of a lemon Kosher salt and freshly-ground black pepper, to taste

Directions: In a medium pot, heat the oil over medium until simmering. Add the mirepoix and sauté until the vegetables are slightly softened, for about five minutes. Add the broth, lentils, curry sauce, curry powder and lemon juice, stirring to combine. Let the soup simmer over medium heat for about 10 minutes. Season to taste with the salt and pepper. Serves two.

Note from Phyllis: Mirepoix is a mixture of tiny diced onion, celery and carrots. The first time I saw a container of mirepoix in Trader Joe’s I was with my friend, chef Jean-Marie LaCroix. I looked at him and burst out laughing. “This is the ultimate in laziness,” I said.

■ Sizzling Cilantro Shrimp ■ Ingredients: 2 3 1 1 1 1

tablespoons of olive oil cubes of frozen garlic, crushed tablespoon of fresh ginger, minced jalapeno pepper, minced teaspoon of ground cumin pound of uncooked shrimp, peeled and deveined 1 0.75-ounce package of fresh cilantro, chopped Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste 1 lime, cut into wedges

Directions: In a large sauté pan or skillet, heat the oil over medium-high. Sauté the garlic, ginger, jalapeno and cumin until fragrant, for about two minutes. Add the shrimp and sauté until just pink and opaque, for about four minutes. Toss in the cilantro and season lightly with the salt and pepper.

Serve with the lime wedges. Serves two as a main dish, four as a first course.

■ Htipiti ■ Ingredients: 1 jalapeno pepper 1 12-ounce jar of Trader Joe’s FireRoasted Red Peppers, drained 1 pound of feta cheese 1/2 cup of ricotta cheese 1/3 cup of olive oil Zest and juice of 1 lemon Pinch of red chili pepper flakes

Directions: In a food processor, finely chop the jalapeno. Add the peppers and chop. Crumble in the feta, add the ricotta and pulse to combine. Add the oil, lemon zest and juice and chili pepper flakes. Pulse to combine. Serves four to six. Note from Phyllis: I always buy Trader Joe’s feta cheese imported from Israel that is made with sheep’s milk. It comes in a green, yellow and white wrapper. This dip is great for crudite or smeared on pita bread or crackers. SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/food-anddrink/features.

Get a friend to help until you regain confidence. Lucky number: 205. ARIES (March 21 to April 20): Sharing nocturnal images becomes illuminating. A phone call or e-mail from your mother or other important female will provide a feeling of connection. Lucky number: 892. TAURUS (April 21 to May 20): A partner may influence how you feel about yourself. This isn’t a good day to accept other opinions. Wait until you are in touch with your own mind again before making decisions. Lucky number: 697. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20): Expressing yourself with words and ideas will come easy. A flirtation makes you radiant and lead suitors to bathe in your warmth. Lucky number: 170. CANCER (June 21 to July 22): Someone will try and control your material world. If you share a bank account or other resources, take a deep breath before making accusations. Suspicions may be unfounded. Lucky number: 526. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22): Your duties are in line with beliefs. You may be planning a fundraiser and have a knack for recruiting supporters and soliciting donations. Lucky number: 255. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22): Social situations will feel unreal around the middle of the day. If attending a class or training seminar, get someone to take notes. Daydreaming or getting the information wrong is likely. Lucky number: 437. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22): A lover or good friend will appreciate one-on-one time. Expressing appreciation for this special person nurtures the intimate bond you share. If currently single, pay attention to the attractive person who really listens. Lucky number: 046. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21): You could get cold feet regarding your career. A situation from the past could resurface and create self-doubt about when you should make a move. Pretend to be an ace until you believe it. Lucky number: 482. SPR

SOUTh PHILLY REVIEW I November 24, 2011

either South Philadelphia High School, 2101 S. Broad St., nor Ss. Neumann-Goretti High School, 1736 S. 10th St., can clinch a winning campaign based on the result of today’s 10 a.m. clash at the South Philadelphia super site, 10th and Bigler streets. However, each school covets an undefeated morning, so the 77th annual Turkey Bowl’s spectators will be able to feast on the sight of committed athletes before consuming their holiday meals. A Public League AAAA Silver Division member, Southern made preparations at the host location Nov. 14, with hopes of halting Neumann-Goretti’s five-game series winning streak. “My staff and I do not have to motivate these guys,” first-year head coach Scott Pitzner said as defensive players reviewed formations. That statement solidifies his belief that observers can easily notice an attitude change among his Rams. Pitzner noted late season practices during his three years as an assistant with the Lower Moyamensing institution featured few bodies. Since assuming the chief instructional position, he has witnessed an attendance and

many statistical monuments. The 1-9 Rams enter the game seeking their first victory since Sept. 29 — an 8-0 triumph over Edison High School. That contest, the season’s fifth, marked the offense’s first trip to the end zone. They have suffered four shutouts, including Sept. 2’s season opening 46-0 demolition courtesy of Edward Bok High School, 1901 S. Ninth St. Foes have scored 275 points, while the offense has generated 74, with 26 coming Oct. 6 in a 40-26 loss to Horace Furness High School, 1900 S. Third St. Last week gave the units chances to hear from their head man, as Pitzner inspected their executions. Before last year’s affair, a 6-0 win for Neumann-Goretti, his predecessor, Stanley “Stosh” Tunney, said he desired to be victorious because turkey tastes better when wins come one’s way. “Let’s just say I’ve had some bad turkey the last three years,” Pitzner said with a laugh. Craving more pleasing provisions, he hopes his defensive line, linebackers and junior all-purpose weapon Wayne Brunson will tarnish the Saints’ plans. “We have to make plays, commit no turnovers, stop them and move the ball,” Brunson said of Southern’s mindset. The resident of the 2100 block of McKean Street looked limber as he continued

continued from previous page to recover from a high ankle sprain. He makes his squad formidable defensively as a defensive back and a linebacker and has gained 316 rushing yards and snared 13 catches. “We are looking to play 48 great minutes,” he said of desiring Southern’s 20th series win. He and Pitzner posit that today’s battle will draw more focus to their school’s future. “For the first time, I think in Southern’s history,” the coach said, “we are building a program.” EAST PASSYUNK CROSSING’S Saints hope the foundation for the Rams’ scheme does not begin today. The 76 previous holiday contests have been generous to the parochial players, as their school has collected 54 wins, with three ties. Pitzner lauded his front defenders, but the Saints will look to make a miserable morning for his secondary. First-year coach Charlie Szydlik guides a team that loves to cause trouble through the air. The Northeast resident united the architect of the aerial attack, quarterback Shane Thomas, and the signal caller’s senior teammates Nov. 16 at the school for a discussion. “Anytime you play a rival school on Thanksgiving, it brings out the best in ev-

GLORIA BROWN UPDATE

Neumann-Goretti grad Gloria Brown and her University of Texas at El Paso women’s basketball team are off to a 4-0 start. The 6-foot-2 forward senior is coming off a 2010-11 season in which she was named Conference USA’s Newcomer of the Year, as well as the league’s Sixth

The Ss. Neumann-Goretti High School Saints will look to continue their winning ways, with these seniors gunning for an undefeated slate against their chief rival. The holiday clash, no matter the teams’ records, has always produced a strong desire among the involved players, coaches and fans to gain neighborhood supremacy. S ta f f P h o t o b y G r e g B e z a n i s

erybody,” Szydlik said. His Catholic League AA troops will march onto the field seeking their fourth win against seven losses. Their season began impressively Sept. 2, as they rocked Furness 34-20. The defensive has struggled, as the school’s most recent triumph — Oct. 29’s 14-0 victory over Bishop McDevitt — marked only the second time they held an adversary under 20 points. The Saints have scored 145 points but have yielded 282. “We have fallen short on a few occasions, but we are looking forward to facing Southern,” Szydlik, accustomed to Thanksgiving games through his time with Northeast Catholic, which before its June 2010 closing faced Frankford High School, said. Like Southern’s personnel, he has used the year as a springboard for creating winning traditions at his site. A win would send off the seniors with a perfect record against their rivals. “We have to go out with a bang,” Thomas, of the 2900 block of South Carl-

isle Street, said of feeling confident under center. He needs only 22 yards to hit 1,000 for this campaign and will hope his receivers can best Brunson and company to add to his 11 touchdown passes. “It’s always nice to end the year against Southern because we always look forward to beating them,” he said. Though a reliable offensive player, Thomas earned a Second Team All-Catholic nod as a defensive back. Fellow senior Theodore Furia earned his own Second Team selection as a linebacker and another as the Saints’ center. “We have to stop their running game and run the ball down their throat,” the resident of the 1700 block of South 12th Street said. Furia’s sentiment means the seniors have no doubt about the day’s significance. “Thanksgiving is huge,” Szydlik said. “We’re ready.” SPR

Player of the Year. Her dominating presence continues to shine on the hardwood.
