A strong majority raised their hands, nearly 80 percent. “How many of you have been a bully?” she posed. Almost the exact amount of hands went up.

Coming home To the Editor: On behalf of the neighbors and board of directors of East Passyunk Crossing Civic Association (EPX), I would like to formally thank The Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital of Philadelphia for its efforts to return the sculpture by Wharton Esherick entitled Rhythm #1 to its home. CHOP is expanding into South Philadelphia at the current site of the South Philadelphia branch of the Free Library, Broad and Morris streets. The plan is a win for the neighborhood, but it left out one key detail â&#x20AC;&#x201D; what would become of the beloved wooden 1965 work of art that resides in the library? The EPX board of directors, led by Darren Fava and myself, ensured the sculpture would be part of the new development for all to enjoy after I made several persistent follow through efforts with architect Seth Cohen and Free Library executive Joe Benford that included e-mails containing lines like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Please know that

this is an EXTREMELY passionate issue for me and one that I will not let go of easily, if at all!â&#x20AC;? Joseph F. Marino Co-Chair, Board of Directors East Passyunk Crossing Civic Association Comment on this letter or topic at southphillyreview.com/opinion/letters.

MAJOR DEPRESSION: As any motorist or cyclist knows, South Philly sinkholes can ruin tires and rouse tempers like few other annoyances. This gaping monstrosity, on the 200 block of Tasker Street, has actually become worse within the last couple days, so let us hope that able bodies replace these Water Department barriers immediately.

The great SEPTA debate â&#x20AC;&#x153;I may be ignorant on this matter (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Avoiding a SEPTA strike,â&#x20AC;? March 27), but has anyone ever considered coming up with another way of getting around? Like another bus company? There are multiple cab companies, why not multiple bus companies? If there were some competition for the travelerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dollar, maybe SEPTA (and the like), wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be so eager to leave that money on the table. Trains are another story, I guess. And unions in general, only seem to be a good idea on paper, never in practice.â&#x20AC;? Mr. Anonymous Bus Rider via southphillyreview.com

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see how competing transit systems would survive economically. Unions never seem like a good thing when you as a customer are affected by a strike. They seem like a helluva good thing when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the worker and compare what your own life would be like without them.â&#x20AC;? Tom Cardella via southphillyreview.com

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like how you did not take sides in the ongoing negotiations. Normally, when salaries are as fair as SEPTAs are, the problems are related to retirement benifits, pension contributions, the sort of thing that no one really cares about. However, when the buses, and this time the regional rail lines, stop running, it becomes a public relations nightmare and a media freefor-all. Each side gets so badly damaged that each side believes they are winning. I cant remember 2009, but I remember 1999 when SEPTA went on strike for about 90 days in mid-summer. This time around, a transit strike would affect my entire day. Even [New York City] saw a transit strike during Christmas about eight years ago and that still is going through the courts. In a mass transit shutdown, no one benefits, SEPTA media.â&#x20AC;? Kevin Metz via southphillyreview.com

to the capture of a man who robbed a hotel patron last week. At 8 p.m. March 24, the complainant was staying at the Holiday Inn, 900 Packer Ave., and anticipated the arrival of a visitor, authorities said. She received a knock on her door, with an unknown man forcing his way in once she answered. He attacked her, causing minor facial injuries and commenced choking her until she passed out. Upon her revival, she noticed several missing items. To report information, call South Detectives Division Det. Fields at 215-686-3013 with the DC# 14-03-015326, text PPDTIP (773847) or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

Grays Ferry mystery Police lack a motive and suspects in the Sunday shooting death of a man. A little before 3 a.m., the victim, 28-year-old Rashul Isaacs, of 18th Street near Morris Street, absorbed shots to his neck, arms and legs while in a parking lot across from Club 121 on the 1200 block of South 35th Street, Officer Christine O’Brien of the Police Public Affairs Unit said. He died 15 minutes later at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-685-1635, text PPDTIP (773847) or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

Here’s the scoop A burglar rid a Hawthorne establishment of its ice cream maker last week. At approximately 3 a.m. March 27, an unknown offender used an open front patio door to enter Tashan Restaurant, 777 S. Broad St., to remove the treat producer, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. Detectives learned from a manager that he had locked the door about an hour before the incident and had used the main front door to exit. The worker added the suspect entered the site with a box, gained access through the open door and located the machine despite darkness, Tolliver said. The burglar took the item, two ice cream scoopers and four stainless steel milkshake cups. Tashan’s video system captured the incident, but no information was available on the offender. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-685-1635, text PPDTIP (773847) or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

West Passyunk woes Two men rid another male of his possessions Sunday. While walking on the 2000 block of Hemberger Street at 11 p.m., the complainant heard someone running behind him, turning around to see two unknown males approaching him, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The strangers pointed guns at him, the first demanded his belongings, with the victim parting with his headphone, iPod, wallet and cell phone. The primary offender told the victim to walk away toward McKean Street but barked at him for his backpack before he could follow the demand. He left the item on the sidewalk and walked away, catching the aggressors running southbound on Hemberger Street toward Snyder Avenue. He described the first as black, 6 foot, 20 to 24 years old; having a slim build; wearing a black baseball hat, a dark hoodie and a black mask to cover his face; and armed with a shiny silver gun with a black handle. He tabbed the other as black, 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-8; wearing a lighter color shirt and pants; and armed with a dark long-barreled gun.

Local residents aim to Keep Up the Sweep Up with another massive cleaning effort. ■ By Joseph Myers Review Managing Editor

rom 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, thousands of volunteers will participate in the seventh annual Philly Spring Cleanup, with South Philly set to host more nearly seven dozen events. Consult this list to nd your perfect match(es), and visit philadelphiastreets.com/philly-spring-cleanup/ for more information. Last year’s efforts collected 1,014,540 pounds of trash and 23,341 pounds of recycling across the city, making it the biggest installment yet. With the way our thoroughfares have looked recently, it seems that at least that much debris will need removing this year.

STEM students show the safest way A Hawthorne school earned $140,000 of tech resources in national Samsung competition. ■ By Bill Chenevert R e v i e w S ta f f W r i t e r

I

magine an application on your phone that works like this: it’s late on a Friday evening in South Philadelphia and you’re getting ready to walk from your house to your friend’s house to watch a movie. Even though you’ve got mace in your pocket, you still feel helpless to eager criminals who could, at any point, jump out and take your wallet, your phone or worse. But if you could pull up an app that tells you the statistically smartest and safest route to walk, maybe you could avoid criminal behavior and preserve a little piece of mind. A team of 15 to 20 students at The Academy at Palumbo, 1100 Catharine St., did just that and won a national Samsung competition that will yield the school $140,000 in technology and licenses. Palumbo’s principal, Dr. Adrienne Wallace Chew, got the process rolling late last fall by slipping a flyer for the Samsung competition into the mailbox of one of her young teachers, Susan Lee. “Originally, the topic was ‘Show how STEM [Science, Technology, Engineering and Math] can be used to improve the local community’,” Lee explained. Over the next four months, she and her peer, Klint Kanopka, led students on their own time through Samsung’s “Solve for Tomorrow” contest. Teachers initially sent in proposals with 255 winners selected. Lee and Kanopka were selected and then started getting students involved. There were 51 state winners and 15 were chosen to present to a panel of judges in Austin, Texas at SXSWedu this March. Judges included representatives from sponsoring companies (DirectTV and Adobe), but also a student from Harvard University and a former Congressman. Five national winners were chosen: one by community votes (G.W. Carver Middle School in Miami, Fla.), one by an employee ambassador (East Valley High School in Yakima, Wash.), and three by the judges’ panel: Sunburst Jr. High School in Sunburst, Mont., Oliver Street School in Newark, N.J., and Palumbo. The students prepared a three-minute video that captured their project: determining the safest route from point A to point B with Palumbo’s corner at 11th and Catharine as Point A and the Charles Santore Branch of the Free Library, 932 S. Seventh St., as Point B. The results were surprising to the students. One team member, 17-year-old Alex Wal-

lace, joked that they realized some of the biggest intersections in the city are worth avoiding altogether. “Avoid Broad and Market [streets]. We were evaluating how you would get across Broad and Market,” Wallace explained, then suggested the best way around it might be to “build a bridge.” Another student, 15-year-old Tarzan MacMood, suggested that crime wasn’t foreign to Palumbo students and that the motivation to create safer pedestrian routes could yield real results and shared a personal story about a friend. “He and his sister both got mugged, and he got all of his money stolen from his wallet. The other time was with his sister, which was practically the same thing, but she also lost her phone,” he went on. “Thinking about him and his sister, ever since last week, what route could he have taken? Maybe if he took a left, or what if he took a right? What if he went a different route? Maybe he could’ve avoided it.” USING CRIME DATA, the team assigned a point value for each block based on the nature of crimes committed. Starting with one, which stands for little to no evidence of crime, and capping values at five, which is assigned for a violent crime, such as a shooting, a route’s safety can be determined by adding up the block values. The lowest sum becomes the safest route. MacMood expressed surprise that what

people might not expect is that the most dangerous routes are often on the biggest thoroughfares. “It may be a main road, but is it the best choice?” he asked. “The longest route was actually the best route and the shortest route was actually the worst route. Are you going to go the longer or shorter route?” With the help of their project’s results, South Philadelphians may think twice. The team also made a website with a paired smartphone-scannable QR code that would direct pedestrians to their findings. In their three-minute video, they shared some essential Palumbo facts: 40 percent of the magnet school’s students are from South Philadelphia; 50 percent of students walk to school; 55 percent of the students from South Philadelphia walk at some point during their commute; and those students walk an average of 5.5 blocks. The four students attributed the team’s success to egalitarian teamwork, across disciplines and ages. One of their youngest comrades, a freshmen named Emmanuel Williams, helped create the site (grasphilly.webs.com). “He knows JavaScript,” MacMood noted. The team worked through one of Philadelphia’s toughest winters in memory, meeting for hours after school and sometimes on the weekend, to combat (many) unexpected snow days. The gravity of the win isn’t lost on the team’s young STEM enthusiasts. They’ve created a project that their much-older science-minded peers are ready to emulate.

After their presentation in Austin, a German app-developer approached them with great interest. They’ve been asked to present their findings to Penn graduate students. “Our whole team is going to be physicists,” 17-year-old Tiffany Ng quipped. Quien Truong, 18, admitted “It feels surreal. It’s a lot to absorb and I will never stop smiling.” But MacMood captured the essence of their accomplishment brilliantly: you never know where breakthroughs and innovation can emerge to change the world. “We have something to offer. We’re not college students but we still have a mind, we have ideas, we’re innovative. Some of the greatest things come from unexpected sources,” he said. “Don’t underestimate us. Younger generations have a greater understanding of technology today. It’s easier for younger and future generations to develop technology because they understand it.” The quirky, ironic circle of this story is that Palumbo will be receiving a huge boost in its technology department less than a year after 30 laptops were stolen from a laptop cart at the school during the summer. “I was devastated but this is a wonderful blessing,” Chew explained. “We got more than [those computers] back and some.” SPR

ANTI-BULLYING continued from page 1 artist. But Johnson was able to impart some words of urgency through a statement issued that day, too. “[Bullying] is a problem that is destructive to our children and to our future. We need our kids to have a safe and welcoming environment so that they can achieve,” he explained. “Silence is no longer an acceptable response to bullying.” Though generational gaps often exaggerate and hyperbolize the changing experiences of grandparents’ education as opposed to their grandchildrens’, it’s hard to deny that there’s a new facet of bullying: Cyber-bullying. Another question by Punzo that would’ve raised eyebrows for anyone older than, say, 21? “How many people here are on Twitter?” Approximately three quarters of the teens’ hands went up. “How many people here are on Instagram?” Almost every hand rose. Students are going through middle and high school, almost all of them, with a smartphone as close to them as their books and notebooks. Punzo was personal and honest with the teens in her captive audience. “I was bullied tremendously in high school. With the arts, not a lot of people understand what we go through,” she added, appealing to the Girard Estatebased magnet arts school’s arts-friendly student body. “When I got into high school, I recorded music. It was a way for me to express myself. In high school, I was the shy type because I was so into my music and afraid to express myself to my peers,” she admitted. She was called fat, ridiculed as ugly and told she can’t make it. “I’m 20 years old and I’m still dealing with it,” Punzo said. Hopefully, with programs like hers and other youth-oriented anti-bullying cam-

POINT BREEZE NATIVE Johnson helped kick off his and Punzo’s anti-bullying campaign

by touting Punzo’s eagerness to make a difference and selflessness in this pursuit. “Every time I talk to Felicia, every time I have the opportunity to participate with her, she’s always trying to inspire the young people of South Philadelphia but also in the City of Philadelphia,” he said as he introduced 1st District Philadelphia Police Captain Lou Campione. Campione and Community Relations Police officer Paul Bryson were on hand to honor the passing of the late Judge Anthony DeFino and slain police officer Charles Knox. Knox “was on duty and responded to a robbery in progress at Broad [Street] and Snyder [Avenue]. Two bullies decided they were going to rob Roy Rogers at gunpoint and unfortunately Knox died as a result of his injuries,” Campione said. His comments lined up with Punzo’s message: “Keep their memories alive and the way to do that is to be the best person

paigns, students across the city are learning how to confront and temper their peers’ attempts at making weaker and quieter students suffer for their gain. “Who’s involved in bullying?” Punzo asked. “People that surround you,” one student shouted. “The bullies, the victims and the bystanders,” another said. “What are some tips you would give to overcome being bullied?” she asked. Hands were up from wall to wall. “Stand up to the bully,” one student said. “Tell a teacher,” another added. “Just walk away from the situation,” “Tell your parents,” “Try not to show emotions,” “Act like it doesn’t bother you,” and “Have a good group of friends around you” all earned audience members bracelets.

that you can be.” Punzo, not far from childhood and challenging teenage years, addresses the difficulty of growing up in a song she created just for her campaign: “I’m Just A Kid.” “I’m just a kid, trying to figure it out and it’s not easy,” she sang to a rapt audience. “Don’t ever hide it – don’t ever hide from who you wanna be.” Her presentation spoke not just to standing up to bullies but also to building and protecting young folks’ self-esteem. Punzo, who intends to hold further gatherings at Chester Arthur School, 2000 Catharine St.; George W. Childs School, 1599 S. 17th St.; and Mastery Charter Thomas Campus, 927 Johnston St., pulled up 10 volunteers for a segment she called “Ten Tips to Build Self-Esteem” with an acrostic poem: “S – share your problems with someone special. E – educate yourself to make good choices. L – learn to respect yourself. F – follow the advice of the people you love. E – expand your unique talents and practice. S – Stay safe, away from gangs, alcohol and other drugs. T – think before you act; you can be a problem-solver. E – earn the respect of your family and act responsibly. E – everyone makes mistakes; don’t stop trying. M – make the best of who you are and your dreams will come true.” The presentation, in the long run, aims to prevent bullying from taking things too far. As Johnson noted in his statement: “In some cases, bullying has led to devastating consequences, such as school shootings and suicide.” With a silver lining, however, he noted that it can be stopped, especially when friends make an effort. “More than 55 percent of bullying situations will stop when a peer intervenes,” he said.

Mark’s mark T

hings just haven’t been the same at the South Philly Review these last several months. I always look forward to those walks downstairs to strike up conversations with my colleagues in the advertising department. Mark Romano’s desk is the one that faces the door, and he was typically the first one to greet me. Some days we would discuss the struggles of our professional sports team (in our 16 plus years of working together there has been only one championship team to talk about) while other times Mark would fire off one of his out-of-leftfield wisecracks that sent me out of the room in hysterical laughter. For the last several months, silence has settled over Mark’s corner. It’s not by choice. Instead of spending his days at this place he called home for nearly three decades of his life, he has been in and out of the hospital as a result of liver failure. He is in dire need of a transplant. In these tough, life-altering times, my friend, you can’t give up the fight. It wasn’t all that long ago where my daily

routine included making two trips a day to the Cooper University Hospital trauma intensive care unit to visit my wife who spent eight-plus weeks in the hospital recovering from a lacerated liver. There were many scary moments along the way, including her being hooked up to a ventilator, but she won the battle. Now, Mark’s friends and family members are rallying together for a similar livesaving effort. A fundraiser is taking place 7 to 11 p.m. April 4 at Galdo’s Catering and Entertainment, 1933 W. Moyamensing Ave. Tickets are $40 per person and include a buffet, cash bar and live entertainment. There also will be a raffle and 50/50. John Gallo, Review Publishing COO, is looking forward to a night dedicated to his good friend. They started working together in 1985, which marked the beginning of Mark’s second stint at the Review. “He immediately took me under his wing, really taught me the business and made me feel at ease with his good nature, patient and always friendly personality,” John said. “What started out as a coworker/

phone calls, e-mails and letters, but John said he has been most impressed by the ones he has personally been getting from clients, ex-coworkers and mutual friends just asking, “How is Mark doing?” Many of them continue ... “He is a great guy, one of the nicest people I’ve ever met, please say hello and tell him he’s in my prayers.” “In the case of my dear friend Mark Romano, it happens to be the absolute truth,” John said. “Get well, my friend.

A Dickinson Square West actress is portraying a flawed yet focused sibling and educator. ■ By Joseph Myers

S

Review Managing Editor

arah Sanford often ponders her progression as a theater personality, using “Tell me, what do you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” from poet Mary Oliver’s “The Summer Day” as a cue for copious inquiries. Through numerous endeavors, the 39-year-old actress has received renown for her responses and is developing more replies as Olga Prozorova, one of the titular figures in the Arden Theatre Co.’s “Three Sisters” production. “It’s tough to appraise what drew me to her in auditioning for the role, but I’d say her flaws have come to appeal to me,” the Dickinson Square West dweller said of the Anton Chekhov-created character. “I’m still figuring out how to play her and explore her blend of pragmatism and idealism.” Familiar with the 1900 play in part through Pig Iron Theatre Co., for which she portrayed youngest sister Irina a few years ago, Sanford felt playing Olga, the oldest of the trio, with Masha in the middle, would offer additional perspective on the preciousness of time, as the primary players often fail to focus on the present by longing for a glorified future or a cherished past. The local resident, who has six South Philly-based peers executing the new translation by Curt Columbus, artistic director of Rhode Island’s Trinity Repertory Co., deemed Olga admirable for surviving her life’s disappointments, including the inability to find a mate, yet added the young woman, employed as a teacher and eventually a headmistress, must learn to tolerate individualism, especially within her clan. “It’s very meaningful that she has the last words, as she’s the one to move her family into the next stage of life,” Sanford said of the relatives, who matured in Moscow yet begin the action residing in a provincial Russian town a year after their army officer father’s death.

“There’s that sense of expectation coupled with practicality.” Through the final utterances, which include such sentiments as “Our sufferings will pass into joy for those who will live after us...” and “If only we could know...,” the thespian has more fervently come to consider Chekhov as having contemporary clout and everlasting endurance as a master of emotional majesty. Exactingly examining family, the self, diligence and duty, “Three Sisters” encourages choosing resiliency over stagnancy and humility instead of hubris, selections that beckon one to balance personal beliefs with others’ input. “Chekhov is always going to be timeless,” Sanford, who played Yelena Andreyevna for Lantern Theatre Co.’s 2010 staging of his “Uncle Vanya,” said of the esteemed playwright. “It’s easy to connect to it. For example, I’d say Olga understands survival, but I don’t think she has ever been in love. Those are elements of many lives, getting by yet longing for love. There’s no narrowing in this play or his other works. We have to confront what’s irking us and go after what excites us.”

“It’s been an interesting journey, and I’m looking forward to new challenges,” the ’10 F. Otto Haas Award recipient for Emerging Theater Artist said. Those tasks will certainly include a return to directing, a vocation that helped her to claim Best Emerging Director status at the ’06 Toronto-situated SummerWorks Performance Festival for “Appetite,” which she brought to Philadelphia in ’09. “It’s odd because nothing feels comfortable to me about directing, but I know when I’m doing it, all my senses are buzzing,” Sanford, who will helm “The Underground Railroad Games” at The Church of the Crucifixion, 620 S. Eighth St., April 21 said. “I’ve made peace with where it lives in my life.” As for the rest of her existence, Sanford is preparing for her July wedding to fellow Pig Iron product James Sugg and is enthusiastically commencing her life as a vegan. She intends to become more of a contributor as a teacher than as a performer, but no matter the endeavor, she, like Olga, will look to be nurturing. “I’m becoming more accepting,” Sanford said. “If only we could know, right?” SPR

Cardella

By Tom Cardella Columnist

April foolishness

I

am sorry to report that this newspaper didn’t see fit to send me to Rome with Gov. Tom Corbett and Mayor Michael Nutter last week. The feeling was that I could just as well make snide remarks sitting at my computer in South Philadelphia and save the newspaper about $5,000 in expenses. Of course I could make the same argument in seeing my tax money spent to fund a trip to Rome for a governor who might not be in office if and when the Pontiff makes the trip here, and a mayor whose city is threatened with a transit strike while he gazes skyward among the pigeons. I understand that when Nutter presented the Pope with a St. Joe’s Prep T-shirt, the pontiff breathed a sigh of relief. “I was afraid you were going to give me tickets to a Sixers game,” he said. Did you notice Northwestern University players won a court battle that allows college players to unionize? Some collegiate stars are already complaining that if they have to accept union scale, it will mean taking a pay cut. We may get the opportunity to see Brent Musburger describe a work stoppage. I’m starting a fund for college quarterbacks. What good is always getting the most beautiful girls if you can’t afford to wine and dine them? But then as a friend told me, quarterbacks don’t have to wine and dine them. On this same topic, two of the panelists on Channel 6’s “Inside Edition” (Christine Flowers and Ed Turzanski) had an interesting take on why we shouldn’t be paying collegiate athletes. College kids can’t handle too much money. We have all witnessed what happens to professional athletes when they get the big bucks. I guess conservatives also can use the same argument for not increasing the minimum wage. The less money you get paid, the less trouble you’ll get into if you spend it. With more revelations about the partying by Secret Service agents, Hollywood is considering remaking that movie “In the Line of Fire.” Zach Galifianakis will play the Clint Eastwood role. The film will be renamed “The Hangover 4.” As I write this, President Barack Obama’s disapproval rating has hit a new high (shouldn’t that be a new “low?”). Among Tea Party members, Obama is behind Vladimir Putin in popularity, 75-25. I was interested in finding out how a Russian dictator outpolled an American president in this country, so I did an informal survey among Tea Party folks. I called my survey The Putin Preference Poll. Some of the rea-

■ s o u t h p h i l l y r e v i e w.c o m

sons given were: Putin gets things done at the point of a gun; If Putin were our president, we would have annexed Canada by now; Who needs health coverage when everybody is too scared to get sick; Putin isn’t afraid to drill for oil. If you’ve got oil in your backyard, he takes your house and we all benefit from more oil. I feel some sympathy for the cat lady. Sure it was a bit much for the neighborhood when she gathered more than 200 cats in her home, but did any of the local media think to report that this translates into a lot less rats in the neighborhood? Like you, I have seen and read all the crazy reports about what is being called the Cinnamon Challenge. Apparently kids who are tired of sniffing glue and swallowing pop rocks have hit upon the notion that it is a good idea to sniff or swallow ground cinnamon. Cinnamon is supposed to prevent chronic inflammation of neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease. Of course, if you keep ingesting heaps of ground cinnamon, chances are you won’t live long enough to get the disease, which is the downside to the current trend. I worry that kids are getting confused by all these TV health reports. Adults themselves are confused over what is good and what is bad for them. Maybe we are all watching too much Dr. Oz? What’s next, teens overdosing on kale chips? Television news has been concentrating much of its time on the missing Malaysian airliner that is now thought to have crashed into the Indian Ocean. Searchers continue to receive reports of debris from satellite photos. The problem is trying to ascertain whether the debris forms any recognizable pattern. People tend to see what they expect to see, even experts. You can compare it to the phenomenon of a kid taking a Rorschach test. It is reminiscent of the time my Aunt Millie saw the face of Jesus in a bagel I had just toasted. She was mortified when I smeared on some cream cheese and ate it in a couple of bites (not the best Easter story). Likewise, one of the observers thought she saw the outline of Jay Leno’s face in a pile of debris (she recognized his prominent jaw). This kind of thing can make a serious search quite difficult. CNN reportedly sent Anderson Cooper to analyze the Leno debris sighting and thought it looked more like Piers Morgan. There is growing support for a Marcellus Shale tax to support our financially strapped public schools. Several Democratic candidates for governor, as well as state Sen. Vincent Hughes, have proposed such a tax. The trade-off is it will allow the schools to remain open. The downside is that drilling for shale could mean the school water fountains will burst into flames. SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/opinion/ cardella.

pring has sprung! Once you’ve picked all the daffodils, consider grabbing these seasonal-set flicks.

Steel Magnolias (1989)) “Steel Magnolias” isn’t exut it clusively set in the spring, but culminates with an Easter egg gg hunt in a field in full bloom, m, and I can’t help but associate te it with the springtime months. s. Maybe it’s the all-encompasssing pink theme of Shelby’ss (Julia Roberts) wedding, g, the sun-kissed character off the film’s southern setting or the bright, bursting personalities of the characters themselves. Or maybe it’s simply because gossip is always ripe for the picking at Truvy’s (Dolly Parton) salon. Spring Breakers (2013) “Spriiiing Breeeaaak Fooor-Evaahhh.” Go ahead, say it with Alien (James Franco), the white rapper-gangster who takes this neon-lit nightmare’s jailbait foursome (played by Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Rachel Korine and Ashley Benson) under his corrupt wing, only to find that it’s the girls who are running things. Don’t be quick to call it fetishism — this modern classic is covertly feminist. Easter Parade (1948) Irving Berlin’s immortal musical boasts some of the most famed duets between

Judy Garland and Fred Astaire (like “Steppin’ Out with My Baby”), and its decadent costumes are coupled with groundbreaking choreography that Astaire executes with trademark mastery. But the standout sequence q has to be “Shakin’ the Blues Away,” Aw a solo act unforgettably performed by Ann Miller. Adaptation A (2002) How do you adapt a book b about flowers into an in interesting film? If you’re C Charlie Kaufman adaptin ing Susan Orlean’s “The Or Orchid Thief,” you craft a pse pseudo-fictitious film about tha that adaptation struggle, wri writing yourself and Orlean into the supremely meta story. M Meryl Streep and Nicolas Cag Cage are superb as the author and the adapter (with the latter pplaying his twin brother too) too), but stealing the show is Chris Cooper, who plays Orlean’s swampwading, oddly beguiling orchid thief. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986) It’s too gorgeous outside for Ferris (Matthew Broderick, never better) to waste his time at school, so he plays hooky with his girlfriend (Mia Sara) and his reluctant best pal (Alan Ruck), who join him for an epic outing involving car theft, a parade, romance and Charlie Sheen. However naughty, “Ferris” is a testament to taking advantage of a perfect spring day. SPR Comment and see the trailers for this week’s movies at southphillyreview.com/arts-and-entertainment/movies.

Wedding Registry 101 (Family Features) For engaged couples, it can seem as if there are a million things to accomplish before the big day arrives. One essential piece of the wedding puzzle involves creating a registry that makes it easy for guests to celebrate your union with gifts that reflect your personality as a couple. Before Building Your registrY It’s no wonder why guests love the ease and simplicity of a gift registry. But many couples may not know where to begin when setting out to create this useful list. Here are some helpful pointers from Macy’s to help you get started on creating a perfect wedding registry: • Meet with a Consultant: These trained professionals are on site to assist and discuss everything you want and need. It’s a good place to start if you have questions on what items to include and what brands are available. • look for speCial prograMs: Some stores offer special features, such as Macy’s, whose Dream Fund allows guests to contribute any amount to the ultimate gift card, so the bride and groom can later choose exactly what they want. • start earlY: Most couples like to register 4-6 months before their wedding date, which allows more time for choosing items, planning for showers and meeting other deadlines. • register together: Whether it’s in-store, online or both - make a day of it and have fun selecting all the things that will be part of your new life together. • Choose different priCe points: Guests will appreciate a varied list that has many gift options to fit their personal budget.

• Create a registrY that refleCts You: If you’re a laid-back, easygoing couple, consider registering for a more casual dinnerware pattern that you can use every day, then mix in some fancy pieces to use for those special occasions. If you enjoy entertaining friends and family, be sure to choose a range of serveware and barware. Making the right ChoiCes With all the things needed to properly stock your home, selecting the right ones can seem overwhelming. Here are some tips to keep in mind while adding to your registry: • seleCt Your settings: A five-piece setting is meant to serve one person and includes a dinner plate, salad plate, bread and butter plate, tea cup and saucer. If you want to serve eight guests, you will need to register for eight five-piece settings. • faCtor in soMe extras: When registering for drinkware, be sure to register for a few extras in each glass size in case some break down the road. • proteCt Your CutlerY: Be sure to choose a sturdy cutting board to protect your knife blades from chips and cracks. You can keep your cutlery in top condition by registering for a honing steel and knife sharpener. • stoCk up on kitChen Must-haves: When it comes to cookware, make sure to stock up on the essentials. This should include a fry pan, saute pan, grill pan, sauteuse (round, deep-sided design for sauteing on the stovetop or baking in the oven) and a chefs pan. • opt for the BasiCs: White dinnerware allows you to transform the look of your table year-round by changing the decor and accessories around it. The classic look will be a design that you can appreciate for years to come. Visit www.macys.comJrcgistryfor a full registry checklist, helpful tips and more information on Macy’s Dream Fund.

Passyunk Ave. will simply be known as Palladino’s and feature Italian, seafood and steak offerings along with a full bar. The plan is to have 80 seats inside and another 40 outside. The current outlook is for a November opening. SPR

on the bottom with the right amount of slight thickness around the rim. We have all suffered through cardboard crust pizza topped with sweet, runny sauce. The tomato sauce had a fine consistency that was enhanced by a sprinkling of oregano. But the generous large ovals of smoked mozzarella and crisp, salty pancetta were the stars.

recent week-long bout of the flu left my taste buds in turmoil. Hot tea with lemon or ginger ale tasted like a combination of metal and library paste. When I finally had enough of chicken soup or toast with jam, I developed a craving for pizza. I thought I had sampled every pizzeria in the city, but I somehow missed Rustica located in Northern Liberties. I was raring to go even though a monsoon-like rain was raging and the temperature had dropped. Rustica is more of a delivery/take-out shop, but there are a few tables for those who prefer hot-from-the-oven pizza. A college basketball game was on the television to keep waiting patrons company. The menu is a mix of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, calzones, wings, paninis and, of course, pizza. Just step up to the counter and give the men, who are busy at work, your order. I had good feelings about Rustica the minute I looked over the menu as they use only imported Italian meats and cheeses from Claudio’s in the Italian Market. I have been a Claudio’s customer for years and instantly knew the ingredients did not come from a can or jar. The side dishes at Rustica also serve as appetizers. Arancini ($5.95) were four golf-ball size treats prepared with Arborio rice stuffed with fresh mozzarella and prosciutto. They were coated with fine, dry breadcrumbs and deep fried to a golden brown. The rice had a perfect consistency. It was still creamy inside like it would be

if it were used to make risotto. The rice had a deep yellow color, which leads me to suspect some saffron may have been used. A cool fresh tasting marinara came on the side. The antipasto salad ($9.95) was large enough for two. It consisted of bite-size bits of fresh cool romaine, thin slices of red onion, pitted calamata olives, sliced red ripe Roma tomatoes topped with Genoa salami, prosciutto and shards of sharp provolone. I tip my toque to anyone who foregoes the nasty tasteless winter tomatoes and opts for the sweeter Roma style. I enjoyed the contrast of textures and flavors. The olives imparted a salty flavor that married well with the slightly hot red onion and crisp romaine lettuce. The meats and cheese really brought the salad together. It was a party in my mouth. There is a choice of dressing, but extravirgin olive oil and a squeeze of lemon or lime hit the mark. The list of pizzas is dazzling. There are a few funky ones for those with a culinary sense of adventure. I am not sure coleslaw should go on a pizza. There are red, white and specialty pies on offer in two sizes. I usually like a white pie topped with spinach, garlic and olive oil. But I wanted to taste the red sauce prepared at Rustica. The flavor and freshness is a sign that the chefs know exactly what they are doing. We ordered Old Smokey ($21 small, $24.50 large). It’s a red pie made with pancetta, smoked mozzarella and oregano. The pizza arrived piping hot, so I had to wait a bit before digging in. The crust was prepared to perfection. It is thin, crisp

Two bags full A pair of East Passyunk Crossing-situated baseball players signed with thriving college programs. ■ By Joseph Myers

Charlie Jerla, left, and Josh Ockimey have picked up big wins, including five championships, during their Saints stint.

Review Managing Editor

F

IN THEIR THREE-PLUS seasons at Neumann-Goretti, the teenagers have come to

P h o t o s b y R o b To r n e y

strengthen the baseball tradition that led them to choose the facility in the first place. With two Catholic League titles and three Class AA City crowns, they have become local forces eager to repel all challengers. “Coming here, we had great teammates who motivated us,” Ockimey said. “Now, other guys are looking up to us.” “That fact and the success we’ve had have helped us to gain in confidence,” Jerla, an outfielder and pitcher, said. “There’s that sense of accomplishment and knowledge that our hard work and our parents’ efforts have paid off.” The latter player fell for baseball by age 4, with an uncle proving the originator of his obsession. A South Philly native, he moved to Florida as a boy and joined his first travel team, the Florida Scorpions, at 9.

“I just enjoyed the instruction and the chance to perform,” Jerla, whose other South Philly tutelage-bearing sites include the Edward O’Malley Athletic Association, 144 Moore St., and Shot Tower Playground, 131 Carpenter St., said. Beckoned to bases at age 5, Ockimey gained a great sense of his potential five years into his maturation when Steve Bandura, who runs the Anderson Monarchs out of the Marian Anderson Recreation Center, 744 S. 17th St., encouraged him to play for the Philadelphia Stars. With time at the Delaware Valley Youth Athletic Association, 2840 S. 18th St., as well, he had grown comfortable with pressure situations by the time, as a member of the Tri-

at southphillyreview.com/blogs.php State Arsenal, he heard from now-former Neumann-Goretti coach Mike Zolk that he should matriculate at the school. “That kind of came out of nowhere, but I’ve loved helping this team however I can,” Ockimey, a four-year starter who received college interest as a freshman, said of his tenure as a potent left-handed bat in the lineup and confident presence on the bench. The young man has especially displayed his diligence in clutch situations, particularly in playoff contests. He will forever live in Saints lore for keeping his club alive in a 2011 Catholic League semifinal by smacking a two-run home run that helped to turn a 13-3 deficit against La Salle into an 18-13 win. Jerla has also shown resolve in postseason duels, picking up the victory in last year’s losers bracket game versus Cardinal O’Hara, an 8-7 extra-inning triumph, and stroking three hits in a 5-2 win over Prep Charter, 1928 Point Breeze Ave., in May 30’s Class AA City title matchup at Richie Ashburn Field, 20th Street and Pattison Avenue. “We’ve definitely been tested,” Ockimey, who won the Florida-situated Louisville Slugger bat challenge in October and worked out at Fenway Park for the Boston Red Sox the next month, said of the hurdles he and Jerla, also his teammate for the Marzano Scout League’s Philly Bandits, have faced and conquered. The players confided they await battles against fellow Blue Division biggies Bonner-Prendergast, Archbishop Wood and Archbishop Carroll but said the key to ensuring a memorable year is giving each opponent their best. The Saints, 2-1 when opening the week, throttled West Catholic 15-0 at home Tuesday, with Ockimey tallying two hits, as many walks and four runs scored and Jerla earning the win, clubbing two hits and knocking in a pair of runs, and faced the Burrs on the road yesterday in a game that ended after press time. They will travel to Penn Charter tomorrow and venture to Warminster Monday to face Wood. “We want to go all the way to the states and win,” Ockimey, reflecting on a painful semifinal loss two years ago, said. “That’s the ultimate goal,” Jerla added, “and every day along the way is important.” SPR Contact Managing Editor Joseph Myers at jmyers@southphillyreview.com or ext. 124.

ocused on following in the footsteps of the Catholic League, City and State championships-winning boys’ basketball team at Ss. NeumannGoretti High School, 1736 S. 10th St., the baseball club will require similar skill and leadership from its seniors. Fortunately for the East Passyunk Crossing institution, Charlie Jerla and Josh Ockimey abound in ability and authority, with commitments to Marist College and Indiana University, respectively, as proof of their prociency. “We definitely have the players to be successful,” Jerla said Tuesday at the school. “We’re coming along and when we put everything together, we’re going to be scary.” “I think we’re really committed to playing as a team and forgetting about individual achievements,” Ockimey, a fellow 18-yearold, said. “Our mindset is to approach every game with class and leave no stone unturned in finding ways to become better.” The athletes have plotted their progression under rookie coach Kevin Schneider, with whom they and their peers fraternized March 15 at the inaugural first pitch dinner. During the celebration, Jerla and Ockimey signed with their postsecondary destinations, fulfilling diamond dreams that originated during childhood. “I definitely feel fortunate,” Ockimey, a two-time All-Catholic first baseman, said of his impending Big 10 Conference journey. “Indiana has a great program, so I’m looking forward to going there after we take care of business here.” In selecting the Hoosiers, the Southwest Philly slugger, who had previously committed to the University of Arkansas before personnel changes influenced his picking another spot, will head to a unit that is ranked 24th in the country and appeared in last year’s College World Series. Jerla, of the 1500 block of South Second Street, received interest from his future haven last summer and fall and yearns to keep the Red Foxes in the hunt for Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference renown. “It’s definitely an established program,” the Pennsport dweller said, “and I just felt it would be the right place for me to grow.”

Holy Spirit, You who solve all problems, light all roads, so that I can attain my goal. You gave me the divine gift to forgive and forget all evil against me and that in all instances of my life You are with me. I want in this short prayer to thank You for all things as You confirm once again that I never want to be separated from You even in spite of all material illusions. I wish to be with You in eternal glory. Thank You for your mercy towards me and mine. This prayer must be said for three days and after three days the favor will be granted. The prayer must be published immediately.
