Bicycles on pavements To the Editor: One of the more annoying and potentially dangerous facts of life for pedestrians is the bicyclist who rides the pavement. This is a nuisance we all put up with. How many times has a bicyclist come up behind and cut around you as he weaves a path across the sidewalk or comes off the street, right up the curb ramp (that was designed to accommodate wheelchairs) directly at you, forcing you to step sideways to let him pass? The rider thinks heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s figured out how to execute a pattern and circumvent the ones walking. But just suppose at that instant, you decide to step sideways to look in a store window or detour around one of our ubiquitous (not quite Paris) outdoor tables, diverging from the staid path the rider assumes youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re following? Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re liable to have a wheel run up your back or handlebars in your kidneys. Look! Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve painted bike lanes on our cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s streets to accommodate the cyclists. (I ride a bike, too â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but not

on pavements) I know of elderly people who have been knocked over this way. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve developed a programmed reflex of glancing over my shoulder whenever Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m walking in anticipation of the goof whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about to cut me down. The sidewalk is for those who walk, and I think the walking citizenry has tolerated this intrusion of bikers too long. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just limited to pedal bikes. A nitwit on a motorbike did his curb ramp jump onto a pavement recently, forcing me to hug a wall. He made no attempt to slow down or stop. The evasive action was all on my part. Have you noticed how well these bikers protect themselves? They conscientiously wear their helmets. But ride in the streets in the bike lanes? God forbid! Better to clip a few pedestrians than have to deal with all that traffic. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much safer on the pavement, eh? What a delicate group they must be. Louis Iezzoni South Philadelphia

Honored to have known him To the Editor: I met Judge Anthony DeFino in 1972 when he and his wife Rose attended my wedding. After I passed the bar in â&#x20AC;&#x2122;76, we would often see each other in Philadelphia City Hall, each of us busy trial lawyers. The difference, of course, was that I was the young upstart while he was the seasoned master. He was always ready to put his arm around me, calm my nerves and lend some fatherly legal advice. I will never forget my first opportunity to appear before Judge DeFino after he was elected to the Court of Common Pleas in â&#x20AC;&#x2122;88. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just appearing before a judge, I was appearing before my friend and mentor. Judge DeFino was a tall man, impeccable dresser, always perfectly groomed, handsome, with a full head of perfectly combed black hair. When he stood up behind that bench, with his hands on his hips, he towered over the courtroom. He had a habit of looking back and forth across the room like a general review-

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think they will beat the Rangers in six games and go all the way to the Stanley Cup.â&#x20AC;? Daniel Gelb, 16th and Morris streets

South PhillyReview ing his troops. He was the iconic vision of a judge, very imposing. Then he spied me walking into the courtroom, and that signature smile broke out and then came the words, uttered with a South Philly accent, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What can we do for you today, Mr. D?â&#x20AC;? In my 40 years as a Philadelphia lawyer, he was the finest judge to grace the bench of the Court of Common Pleas of Philadelphia County. He started promptly at 9:30 a.m. and expected everyone, lawyers, as well as the court personnel to be ready to go. He worked incessantly, even if he was sick. He knew how to try a case because he was a trial lawyer himself. He knew how to work through and resolve legal issues so as not to delay the trial. He was kind and courteous to everyone in his courtroom. Judge DeFino was a man who fixed problems, and he fixed them with South Philly Italian practicality. He was courteous to the lawyers who appeared before him. He was compassionate as well in his sentencing policies. He wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about warehousing human beings. Off the bench, Judge DeFino was a gregarious, raconteur often seen holding or smoking one of his long favorite cigars. He always had an ear for a great joke, to which he would react with a high-pitched laugh. He enjoyed spending summers with his family and his many grandchildren at the Shore. He also loved eating in Italian restaurants in South Philly, especially his sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s restaurant. I am truly honored to have known and befriended this great man. What a tremendous tribute and legacy to be able to bring smiles to the faces of all who knew Judge DeFino at the mere mention of his name. Perry de Marco Sr. Overbrook Comment on these letters or topics at southphillyreview.com/opinion/letters.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are home now so I think they will come out winning this series with the Rangers. They have just as much of a shot at the Cup as any other team in the playoffs.â&#x20AC;? Duke Franklin, East Passyunk and Washington avenues

illow Orr, of the 1900 block of Federal Street, became one of 11 individuals busted in connection with what participants supposedly called “the Main Line takeover project.” Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman announced charges Monday, divulging Orr et al reportedly peddled drugs at three higher learning institutions, with marijuana as the Willow Orr top product. Authorities seized eight pounds of marijuana, more than $11,000 in cash and an assortment of loaded and ready-to-fire guns from nine locations across Philadelphia and the region. They contend Haverford’s Neil Scott and Villanova’s Timothy Brooks led the operation and employed high school and college subdealers, with Orr, 22, purportedly among them. The arrestees await a May 6 preliminary trial on charges of manufacturing and delivering controlled substances, criminal conspiracy and dealing in corrupt organizations.

Eateries burglarized Three food establishments parted with cash Tuesday in a serial burglary. At 3:15 a.m., authorities responded to an alarm at Le Virtu, 1927 E. Passyunk Ave., and found an empty cash register on the site’s block. Someone had forced open the front door lock and taken $100. Officers reported to Johnny Chang’s, 2601 S. Broad St., at around 5:30 a.m. in response to a burglary-in-progress call. They also found the site’s front door broken, with the owner noting nearly $200 gone. Nearly four hours later, law enforcement workers ventured to Fuel, 1917 E. Passyunk Ave., where the proprietor said he had arrived at 7:30 to open his site and discovered its front door pried open and cash register missing. Police divulged someone had taken about $150. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-685-1635, text PPDTIP (773847) or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

Grabbed on the go Police arrested a man for allegedly assaulting and robbing another male near a deli.

At approximately 9:36 p.m. Saturday police headed to 700 Snyder Ave. and met with the complainant, who stated two unknown black males had robbed him. They had comprised two-thirds of the trio of strangers whom he had observed upon his exit from a deli, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The victim said he had started to walk home when the offenders grabbed him, one doing so from his left side and the other wrapping his arms around the complainants’ arms. He fell to the ground, with the second aggressor on his legs. That figure grabbed a wallet from the prey’s waistband, Tolliver said, and ran southbound on Seventh Street toward Cantrell Street. A passerby called authorities, with the first offender deciding to remain on location. The complainant identified 56-yearold Calvin Wimberly, of the 700 block of Cantrell Street, as an attacker, and police arrested him. He faces charges of criminal conspiracy, theft, robbery, assault and unlawful restraint. Authorities provided no description of the at-large thief. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-685-1635, text PPDTIP (773847) or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

Within striking distance Authorities arrested a Northeast Philly man for his alleged attack on another male in Lower Moyamensing Saturday. Responding to a call of a person with a weapon at 10th Street and Snyder Avenue, they met with the victim, who stated someone had struck his head with an unknown object, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. He received transport to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital for cuts to his head and left side, arm and shoulder soreness. Officers surveyed the area and brought a possible suspect to the site, where the victim positively identified the figure as his attacker, Tolliver said. They arrested 48-year-old Northeast Philly resident Louis Bartholetti and charged him with possession of an instrument of crime, simple and aggravated assault and recklessly endangering another person. Authorities had no insight on what caused the matter or the relationship, if any, between the men. SPR Contact Managing Editor Joseph Myers at jmyers@southphillyreview.com or ext. 124.

on Ly “was an ardent believer in all the goodness that is America,” according to the family-generated website don-ly.blogspot.com. The technological tribute requires past tense usage because an unknown male murdered the 68-year-old fruit vendor outside his 400-block-of-Vollmer-Street home early in the morning on April 18, 2013. To commemorate his contributions to their lives and to call for the killer’s capture, his loved ones united outside their Whitman abode Friday for a solemn vigil. “He was a true gentleman,” son Hoanh Ly said as relatives placed candles before pictures of his patriarch. “It has been hard to cope, but we remain hopeful, and each day we’re reminded that he’s still with us in spirit.” The devoted husband of 42 years to Saruoung Thach and loving father of four children, all whom he put through college with profits from his University of Pennsylvania-situated fruit truck, lost his life at 5:31 a.m. after receiving stab wounds to his neck, torso and right arm. Investigators have footage of the aforementioned suspect wandering along the 2700 block of South Randolph Street but have not determined a motive, as the killer did not take any cash or possessions, and have yet to establish credible leads, though they keep in contact with the family to discuss developments. “I don’t want to say anything to him,” Hoanh Ly said of his intentions when authorities apprehend the individual. “I just want to know why he was raised to believe his actions were right.”

When he receives news of an arrest, the forlorn figure, who fraternized with family members and neighbors in remembering his creator, plans to “spread the joy” to kith and kin in Vietnam, which Don Ly departed from to settle in Manchester, N.H., in June 1990. During his Asian existence, which included time as a monk and a police officer and treks to Cambodia and Thailand to escape government-led persecution, he developed the dedication to sacrifice that led so many to find him endearing, a trait that continued to attract respect later in ’90 when the family moved to South Philly. “We have to hold everyone together, especially the children,” Hoanh Ly said of the grieving process, noting that his mother, understandably so, has been especially sorrowful. “Everyone should know his story,” Leeto Ly added, divulging that the website, which includes a depiction of the suspect, aims to convey his father’s full commitment to being a citizen of his second homeland. “We certainly miss him and desire justice.” The web account reveals Don Ly “never once betrayed himself from the path of goodness.” That evil entered his father’s world still upsets Hoanh Ly. “There are so many memories,” he said. “It’s a shame we can’t make new ones.” The Citizens Crime Commission and the City of Philadelphia are teaming up to offer a $25,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the matter.

Late-night locomotion The SEPTA Broad Street line will run 24/7 on weekends to meet growing demand. ■ By Bill Chenevert R e v i e w S ta f f W r i t e r

C

SEPTA will start experimenting with 24-hour service of the Broad Street Line in June to meet rider needs, serving riders’ increased use of transit and providing affordable trips home for late workers. File Photo

a.m. Beginning at a to-be-determined start date in June and running through to Labor Day, SEPTA will experiment by running the Market-Frankford and Broad Street lines through to Sunday at midnight and keep Night Owl buses at rest. “We had been working on a plan for this since the later part of last year,” SEPTA spokesman Andrew Busch said. “We do feel like there’s an increased interest and enthusiasm for transit, and we absolutely welcome that. And we’re always open to discussions and suggestions.” A looming strike last month worried Benner, both that buzz about extended service would lose steam and that budget talks would hurt the #SEPTA247 cause. But he ended up getting his answer with an April Fool’s prank. He contacted Wash Cycle Laundry, 1611 South St., who had just implemented new bikes and hauling power, to jokingly cart late-night transit seekers when the Owl Bus just won’t do. A TV media outlet picked up the story, and after they realized it was a stunt, asked Benner if he had one question to ask SEPTA, what would it be? “I would ask if their pending strike would affect them potentially rolling out latenight El service?” Benner said. The answer was simply ‘No.’ THE BROAD STREET service will greatly service South Philadelphia, with both homeownership and businesses booming near

the Ellsworth-Federal, Tasker-Morris, and Snyder stops. Busch reports “Average daily ridership on the BSL is in the neighborhood of over 120,000 to 123,000 rides a day,” while the Market-Frankford line, “the busiest line we have, that’s about 190,000 and that’s just train service during the day.” He shared optimism on the latest transit trends, as well: “Ridership on those subway lines and all of the transit services have, for the better part of the last six or seven years, seen a very steady increase of one to three percent, which we consider significant.” There is also a popular notion that it behooves SEPTA to pay attention to its market and give service adjustments and improvements a try. Andrew Stober, at the Mayor’s Office of Transportation and Utilities, agrees. “It’s really good to see SEPTA willing to try something,” he said. “They’re being smart and they’re going to get a lot of bang for their buck.” There are also arguments that the service extension is a sign of the times, that neighborhoods are evolving and transit is impacted. “I see it in a larger context of the city changing,” Stober said. “Particularly South Philadelphia but also part of North Philadelphia along the BSL, and SEPTA is evolving to meet transportation needs. And those needs are about more and more residents who want to travel and are choosing

to travel by foot and transit and bike.” The budget that will be up for scrutiny at many area public hearings is nearly $1.3 billion, making the $300,000 necessary for service extension seem pretty slight. But is it possible that the 15-member SEPTA board will shoot it down? Unlikely. “We hope this will be well-received,” Busch said. When pushed if there’s a chance for the budget to fail, he replied “I couldn’t even remember the last time something like that has happened.” Even if Benner never got to deliver his signatures, the buzz he created resulted in local media covering it and beating down SEPTA’s door for answers. And in a way, Benner is representative of the market that’s growing in Philadelphia: young, transit-friendly, car-unfriendly, and interested in the arts. He may not have singlehandedly caused extended service, but his campaign came just as SEPTA says it was investigating the matter. “It ended up being the perfect timing to do something like this,” Benner said. “SEPTA’s thankfully looking toward the future and realizing that they have a city that’s really on the cusp of a renaissance, and it feels like, for once, they get to be the good guy.” SPR Contact Staff Writer Bill Chenevert at bchenevert@southphillyreview.com or ext. 117.

onrad Benner’s Change.org petition, entitled “Run the Market-Frankford El and Broad Street Line Subway 24/7,” is almost to 2,600 signatures. The web signature-collecting site allows for comments, and they’re all pretty similar: The Night Owl buses aren’t good enough, it’s not safe waiting for them, and anyone waiting late at night, either after socializing or working, is a target. Luckily, Benner’s petition didn’t even need to get delivered. Because as word of the 2,000-plus signatures reached local media sources, they, in turn, went to SEPTA and asked the questions that Benner had hoped his petition would produce: Why can’t SEPTA run trains 24 hours a day, at least during the weekend? The answer, right from SEPTA was essentially, ‘Actually, we’re talking about it and planning to give it a try.’ Benner’s a photographer, blogger and social media manager with Center City-based Quaker City Mercantile. The Fishtown native and Philadelphia lifer’s been taking the train his entire life, including as a teen to Central High School near the Olney stop on the Market-Frankford line. “Anytime we would go to a museum I’d say ‘Don’t drive! Let’s take SEPTA,’” he recalled of his youth. But he wasn’t as fond of SEPTA’s night buses, which replace train service after midnight, after working Old Navy shifts as a teen or after barista shifts at Capogiro in his early 20s. “They were always crowded and superlate – they’re just a poor excuse for what the trains offer,” he explained. A few months ago he started pushing an easy-to-spread catchphrase or hashtag: #SEPTA247. He got T-shirts made up by Print Liberation with the phrase and Philadelphians started expressing their desire for more trains. “Bars and restaurants are a huge part of our economy right now, not to mention the arts and music and the people who work in hospitals and cafes,” Benner commented. “There’s a new generation here and people would rather spend money on art and shoes and not on cars.” As SEPTA begins presenting its 2014-15 budget at public hearings, it will include approximately $300,000 to staff and run trains all night long on Friday and Saturday nights. Normally, trains cease shortly after midnight and start again close to 5

I came there for one thing and that was to get a diploma. From this point on I’m a part of the EOP family.” The Newbold resident is already planning on attending Camden County Community College. “I’m going to take my placement test — I already did the paperwork,” Jones noted. He hopes to keep moving towards becoming a youth counselor. The journey began with some direction from good friend and program alum Kenneth Palmer. “I made a pact with him that I would go and make sure I finished it because I saw how excited he was about achieving his diploma and going to school every day,” Jones said. “So when the trimester came around again, I made sure that I was in the position to do so.” It’s clear that the success of the EOP and its students is a community-building effort. They’re told to rely on one another to sustain motivation and check each others’ excuses, as one of program director Nock’s clearest messages is “no excuses.” “No excuses. No inappropriate behavior. No giving up,” the native of the 2400 block of South Bucknell Street said. “I remind them that we are a family and that we need to support each other. You have to call each

MOORE FIRST BROUGHT the idea for helping students get to their prom after seeing students getting ready for a prom on a bus ride from New York City. “Nobody should be denied a prom experience due to finances,” the resident of the 2000 block of Snyder Avenue said. The 2011 South Philly Review Difference Maker presented the idea to his core group and had to do a little convincing: “Some were on the fence, but I liked the idea, so I made sure it went off.” The first recipient of the award was Iyon-

na West, a World Communications Charter School student. But since then, the process has gotten bigger and better. Nominations are accepted via Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and the organization website, unityinthecommunity215.com. And even though last year’s recipients got a ride to their prom with a Porsche driven by Harris, this year is extra special because it honors students who are doing something just about every South Philadelphian can applaud. “It’s perfect because it sends a positive message to the community that it’s never too late to go back to school or to get your education,” Moore, whose mother is also in the program this spring, said. “You have to put your pride to the side — I know it’s tough.” It’s a passion project for Harris, who spoke at last year’s commencement services. “The theme is It’s Never Too Late. The program they do at South Philly High is an amazing program that gives our adults the opportunity to go back to high school and

They’re like little sponges,” Whaley said. Moore was able to cull together quite a collection of charitable community members to contribute to the cause: Faheem Alexander from Hand of Precision, 2100 S. 20th St.; Charlene Wilson of Mitchum Wilson Funeral home, 1410 S. 20th St., will provide a suit; Lena Hill of Honey Accessories; Antwain Davis will provide Whaley’s shoes care of A Disease Called Hope; and Zakiya Black from Zyn Beauty, a new traveling beauty services company, will beautify her with hair and makeup. “We really believe that every woman feels better when she has some time to devote to her beauty, and this is a great opportunity to do what we love do,” Black, a resident of the 1300 block of South 16th Street said. “They seemed really excited and humbled that they were getting so much support and it was nice to be a part of it. That’s something that they should experience more often, just to be center stage and show off their accomplishment.” SPR Contact Staff Writer Bill Chenevert at bchenevert@southphillyreview.com or ext. 117.

A burning passion A Lower Moyamensing native will reap reward for his firefighting-related efforts. ■ By Joseph Myers Review Managing Editor

“U

nlike with Police Department people, nobody gets mad at Fire Department personnel because they’re always there for you,” Joseph R. Rizzo said last week of what partially prompted him to join the latter group though the former contained his father and brother Frank. “I loved serving this city and its residents for as long as I did, and I’m proud of what I accomplished.” The native of the 2300 block of South Rosewood Street indeed established a powerful reputation during his nearly four-decade tenure battling blazes and will accept much-appreciated praise tonight when the Philadelphia Fire Department Historical Corp. and the Fireman’s Hall Museum honor him with the second entity’s inaugural Founders’ Award. For the 89-year-old, the Old City-situated ceremony will validate his longcherished contention that “a little hard work never killed anybody.” “I’m elated they thought to commend me,” the Avalon, N.J. resident said from Chiarella’s Ristorante, 1602 S. 11th St., where he and fellow civil servants gather weekly to reflect on their vocations. “It’s good proof that what you thought was right and proper to sustain operational integrity really was so.” The celebration’s setting figures

LIFESTYLES to prove emotional for Rizzo, who, among many endeavors in his 12-year stint as fire commissioner, had the museum transformed to include collections and additional educational options. Though he departed as a department employee 30 years ago, he has continued to promote the venue as a vital element of the Fire Prevention Division. “It’s definitely dear to me,” Rizzo said of the spot to which he will return thanks to the Honorary Committee, which includes Bella Vista dweller James Binns, who oversees the Hero Thrill Show, the philanthropic brainchild that generates college tuition for the offspring of fallen Philadelphia police officers and firefighters. “I’ve met great people along the way, so I’ll just express my gratitude to them.” Blessed with an immense work ethic, the octogenarian will need to prove a man of leisure as the guest of honor. He will make the trip with companion MaryAnn Sullivan and expects most of his seven children to join them for the evening. Interacting sporadically with his peers since last year’s retirement from the law firm Cozen O’Connor, for whom he worked as director of investigations, a position that bred friendships with fire and police figures from across the country, Rizzo looks forward to reminiscing and considering the

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

future of their field. “Aside from my family, work always resonates with me,” he said. “I think during my time that people came to respect the department intensely because it was filled with guys with good heads on their shoulders. I’m fortunate to count myself among them.” ONE OF FOUR sons comprising the Rizzo clan, the retiree lived in South Philly for his first 14 years and felt a strong pull toward a life helping the public because of his patriarch and famous sibling Frank. He entered the Navy in 1943 and contributed to the nation’s World War II efforts in the Pacific campaign, with the famous Admiral William Halsey serving as a mentor. Receiving an Honorable Discharge in ’46, the commended deep sea diver and pilot of a tank lighter, who won American Area Campaign, Asiatic Pacific Campaign, Good Conduct and WWII Victory medals, contemplated a career in law enforcement but found no positions. “Firefighting was more than a suitable backup plan,” Rizzo said of his vocation, which he divulged proved so compelling partly due to his fraternizing with fellow war veterans who shared his no-nonsense stance. “I didn’t have any initial plan about making a

huge rise through the department, but I knew I wanted to do my best to protect.” Joining the department in ’47, he became a lieutenant eight years in and a captain 10 years later. With Frank as the police commissioner from ’67 to ’71, Rizzo gained an even greater understanding of their departments’ contributions to the city’s upkeep and reveled in the opportunity to revitalize his sector in ’72, when his brother, on his first day of office as Philadelphia’s 93rd mayor, appointed him fire commissioner. “Sure, there was talk of nepotism, but Frank believed in what I was about regardless of our relationship,” Rizzo said. Serving under his sibling and Bill Green III, the ambitious worker made making improvements to conditions for him and his colleagues a must, as he built a new Fire Administration Building and Emergency Command Center, initiated the use of paramedics with a rescue squad, sent all officers to the National Fire Academy in Maryland for executive training, established a new fire code for high-rise buildings and orchestrated the creation of a dozen fire stations, including Engine 53, 414-16 Snyder Ave. Always eager to excel, he oversaw a well-documented era of the department’s history, which included annual recognition from the National Fire Protection As-

sociation for Excellence in Fire Prevention Activities Throughout the Community and the Freedom Foundation of Valley Forge. When Mayor Wilson Goode removed him from office, he quickly latched on with O’Connor and represented its mission for 29 years through national and international assignments. “They treated me very well there,” Rizzo said, adding he worked so long because the joys of applying himself made him forget his age. “They’re another group of people who make me feel blessed.” As he prepares to accept his accolade, the older adult, who has come to enjoy his domestic identity, especially for its chances to catch up on reading, has pondered his legacy with little fanfare. With honors from such entities as Alcoholics Anonymous, the American Institute for Italian Culture, the Knights of Columbus and the March of Dimes, he cannot escape the fact that many locals respect and admire his passion for his passion. “South Philly helped me to become a man,” he said. “I’m glad I was able to help residents here and throughout the country. They inspired me.” SPR Contact Managing Editor Joseph Myers at jmyers@southphillyreview.com or ext. 124. Comment at southphillyreview.com/news/lifestyles.

Cardella

By Tom Cardella Columnist

Killing him softly

A

sports radio talk show host recently told a caller, “Don’t feel sorry for DeSean Jackson.” Jackson was a star player for the Philadelphia Eagles. He was released by the team amidst rumors of off-the-field activities after a story appeared on NJ.com. In the ensuing weeks, speculation about Jackson ran wild. Action News’ Vernon Odom compared Jackson to Allen Iverson, a poster boy of bad off-the-field behavior. Both are “flawed persons,” Odom remarked during one of his news reports. Somehow it didn’t stop the division rival Washington Redskins from signing Jackson just three days after his release. The Eagles organization has remained silent throughout this time, content to issue statement that said nothing. So should anyone feel sorry for Jackson? Jackson still has his career intact. He will continue to be paid more money than you or I will ever see in a lifetime. He is undoubtedly a guy who may take a play off once in awhile, who may miss a team function on occasion, who may show up late for a team meeting and who may even sass the coach. So why any sympathy for another overpaid and spoiled athlete? I won’t cite football reasons to answer the question, except to say that the Eagles were 10-6 and made the playoffs last season with DeSean Jackson as their best pass receiver. These facts are indisputable. The reason his release (without the Eagles obtaining any compensation) became controversial is precisely that, from a football standpoint, no one really believes the Eagles are a better team without him. The real purpose of this column is to try to understand the damage that has been done to a man’s reputation and what that says about the mindset of too many of the media and fans these days. There is an axiom that once you lose your reputation, it is near impossible ever to get it back. When the story first broke about Jackson, it was pretty much universally believed the Eagles organization knew something we didn’t. But the NJ.com story turned out to be a rehash of stuff the Eagles already knew two years ago when the organization, then in the hands of Joe Banner and Andy Reid, resigned Jackson to a new five-year contract. Nothing in the story tied Jackson to any criminal activity. Indeed after it broke, the Philadelphia Daily News contacted both local and national law enforcement officials, all of

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

whom confirmed that Jackson was not under suspicion of any criminal activity and had been cooperative when questioned about a killing outside a West Coast property owned by the player. Jackson was in these parts when the crime was committed. Weeks have gone by and no “smoking gun?” has emerged. What kind of gang associations was Jackson alleged to have? There are photos that show him flashing signs supposedly associated with a West Coast gang. Jackson said that the signs were meant to construe solidarity with his old neighborhood, not gang membership. There is no evidence that Jackson is currently a gang member or involved in any gang activity, but admittedly he has kept some of those friendships. Those of us who live in this area, who grew up with guys who later became involved in criminal activity, did not turn our backs on old neighborhood friendships. We understand what guilt by association is about. That seems to be the real “crime” Jackson committed. But it is a well-known fact around the NFL that Jackson is just one of a number of players who could be accused of guilt by association. Again, why Jackson? Some media and fans point to the fact that his former teammates did not rush to support him as a sign that he was a bad guy. The report I get from someone who is in the team locker room frequently (more frequently than some of Jackson’s critics, some of whom never stepped foot in the locker room during the season) is that DeSean was quiet, not a distraction at all. He did not hang with teammates off the field, a likely reason teammates did not rush to his defense. There is probably also another factor at work. Jackson is gone, but head coach Chip Kelly, who made the decision to get rid of Jackson, is still in charge. Players wanting to remain in the coach’s good graces are probably not going to rush to defend Jackson. It is well-known around professional football that a number of star players in the league carry with them the reputation of being divas. There is what I call a pain-in-thebutt factor. A coach must balance a player’s value to the team against the difficulty of dealing with him. In Jackson’s case, Kelly felt the balance was tipped the wrong way. That is a coach’s right, and he will succeed or fail based upon his decision. But the Eagles did something that was not right at all. They allowed the story about Jackson’s alleged gang ties to be used as cover for their controversial release. The organization let Jackson twist in the wind. The Eagles’ front office is gutless. It allowed the reputation of Jackson to be needlessly destroyed while they stood by silently. And for that reason, we should feel sorry for Jackson.

Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton) are time-tested figures abounding in knowledge of humanity’s best and worst traits.

‘Alive’ and well ■ By R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer

P

ost-“Twilight,” savvy auteurs have been gradually reclaiming the vampire flick from its longstanding YA decline, making bloodsuckers into elegant badasses instead of mere objects for teenage desire. The shift was seen last year in “Kiss of the Damned” and “Byzantium,” and it hits a hard-to-top pinnacle with “Only Lovers Left Alive,” a gorgeously literate, rocker-vamp romance from Jim Jarmusch. The brilliantly paired Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton play spouses Adam and Eve, who’ve survived centuries together and become more wellread and culturally astute than any of us could hope to be. It’s hugely commendable that, beyond infusing the story with a rock groove that bolsters tone and character (Adam is a beloved musician hiding out in dilapidated Detroit), Jarmusch carefully considers how living through many ages would affect those thirsty not just for blood, but knowledge and artistic enrichment. It’s amusing indeed that Eve’s friend Christopher Marlowe (John Hurt) wrote all of Shakespeare’s best work, but Jarmusch isn’t boxed in by punch lines. Nor is he insistent on keeping Adam and Eve’s influences in the past. Name-checked by the couple is everyone from Newton to Darwin (each of whom they knew or admired), but there’s also Jack White, whose childhood Detroit home Eve ogles with awe. Since they’ve seen so many icons come and go, it’s as if we can trust their taste in regard to who will endure. And why not put White in the company of Pythagoras? Though a quasi-suicidal Adam regularly

shares his disdain for humans (or “zombies,” as he calls us), he and his mate prove to be, in a sense, the writers and carriers of humanity’s history book, knowing where we’ve been and where we’re going, and maintaining an outsider’s perspective despite living among us. (“Has the war over water started yet?” Adam asks Eve.) From casting to craftsmanship, Jarmusch turns this groovy, mid-tempo story into its own form of enrichment. It’s not just the coolest movie of the vampire renaissance; it’s the coolest vampire movie ever.

Though it earned director Jason Reitman the poorest reviews of his career, and suffers from too much bathos once it nears its end, the atmospheric melodrama “Labor Day” shouldn’t be briskly dismissed. Solidly acted by Kate Winslet, Josh Brolin and young Gattlin Griffith, the coming-of-age-cum-love-story presents a complex take on the Stockholm Syndrome scenario, and features Reitman’s welcome attention to everyday details. A pie-baking scene alone is worth the rental. SPR Comment and see the trailers for this week’s movies at southphillyreview.com/arts-and-entertainment/movies.

Vendors are gearing up for next weekend's eight-hour spring celebration. capture the vibe of the host neighborhood, the organizers recognized local music needed to be a central feature. “I really think this is going to become one of the signature music festivals on the Philadelphia scene,” Harris proclaimed. The aforementioned musical acts, featuring local talent anyone tapped in is sure to recognize, will be spread across three stages set up on Second, Fifth and Eighth streets, as well as eight street performance locations spread throughout the festival. Jim Thorpe of the Legendary Dobbs, 304 South St., one of South Street’s oldest and most notable venues, was enlisted to curate with help from those at The Twisted Tail, 509 S. Second St., the Headhouse’s own juke and bourbon joint. “Last year the music sort of took over the festival in a very good way, for round two this year we had to up the game. We booked all bands that played South Street. It’s the current sounds of South Street that’s going on,” Thorpe noted. “All these bands have played Dobbs, Lickety Split, TLA, Twisted Tail, Woolly Mammoth, or even on a street corner down here at night. The variety of music goes from funk to jazz, rock, and bluegrass. The Facebook page for the festival has some links to those performing and you can check them all out.” On the heels of a brutal winter, spring and its festivities have never been more highly anticipated. For the Headhouse District and the rest of South Street, it appears to be the perfect moment for upping the ante and staking their claim among Philly’s agship events. Thawed out and eager, the city seems ready. SPR For more information, visit southstreet. com. Comment at southphillyreview.com/sports/ features.

ow in its second year, the South Street Spring Festival appears to be taking steps to catapult itself up the ladder of Philadelphia's banner events. Set to take place 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. May 3rd, the event will shut down South Street from Front to Eighth, opening it up to the tens of thousands of people expected to descend on one of the city’s most widely recognized locations. The success of last year’s inaugural festival only spurred organizers to think bigger, and it appears they’ve accomplished just that. To make the rise, they’ve employed two draws — Germany’s festival culture and the local music scene. Naturally the German component, and really the whole idea of Spring Fest itself, started with Doug Hager, owner of Brauhaus Schmitz, 718 South St., the popular beerhouse that serves sausage by the meter and lls a stein as well as any bar in the city. Hager, whose restaurant already spearheads the well-attended Oktoberfest, wasn’t satised with one event and sought to give South Street the spring event it lacked while also infusing more of Germany into Philly. For this, he turned to the centuries old tradition of Maifest. “Oktoberfest is the one everybody has heard of — six or seven million people descend on Munich each year for the biggest festival in the world,” Hager said. “But that’s only one example of what Germany does. They have hundreds of festivals throughout the country throughout the year, and one of the biggest is Maifest, a celebration of spring. It has been around since the 1500s and is celebrated across all Germanic countries, Scandinavia and even Great Britain.” Rather than tackle it alone, he approached the South Street Headhouse District, headed by Executive Director Michael Harris, and Hager found that rather than be hesitant, the district would think big. “We were going to just shut down the 700 block, but then we thought why not just shut the whole thing down from Front to Eighth,” Harris said. Fast forward one year and more than 30 restaurants, bars, cafes, and food trucks, as well as 40 musical acts, and numerous shops are on board. South Street, perhaps Philly’s most eclectic street, is now set to come together each spring. But to truly

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

A

recent visit to Moore Brothers to purchase wine prompted me to think about reviewing a BYOB. Wine markups are horrendously expensive in many fine dining establishments. After looking through my columns, I realized I had never reviewed Russet. Located in a brick townhouse built in 1877, Russet is owned and operated by Andrew and Kristin Wood, a husband and wife team with strong culinary nods given to local ingredients. The location once housed Ernesto’s, which was always a fine choice for dinner before a play or concert. After a recent dinner, I just may return before attending a Pennsylvania Ballet performance next month. Comfortable banquettes line one wall, lighting is soft and the music on the sound system ran the gamut from Edith Piaf to Frank Sinatra. Our server opened our wine, a dry, Italian red blend and advised there are no specials. The menu changes daily depending upon the ingredients chef Andrew Wood has purchased. Each local farm is listed on the menu. Dinner began with spring garlic sformato ($12) and house smoked Scottish salmon ($12). A sformato is a warm savory flan that one can prepare with any number of ingredients. The garlic flavor was as light as the wiggly flan. A few leaves of baby lettuce, dressed in a slightly sweet balsamic vinaigrette along with crunchy potato gaufrettes made this starter a winning dish. Scottish salmon, smoked in house, is alFast Break Millie’s Luncheonette & Ice Cream: 1441 W. Shunk St., 215467-8553, $ Philadium: 1631 Packer Ave., 215271-5220, philadiumtavern.com, $

ways a welcoming way to begin a meal. A slice of cold toasted brioche served as the base for the cold salmon that was accompanied by some lettuce, scallions and cool in-season breakfast radishes. A poached egg was nestled under the vegetables, and when I broke it, the egg yolk oozing and running over the ingredients, I was a happy patron, until I took a bite. It was ice cold and the white had not settled enough. I have never eaten nor have been served a cold poached egg. Disappointment set it. The crispy nettles flavored with a hint of sea salt were the highlight of the dish. From the entrees, we selected wild striped bass ($28) and smoked lamb shoulder ($30). Wood seared the small, thick slice of succulent fish to perfection. He did it with such care, the skin remained crispy. I enjoyed the mélange of vegetables he selected. They included heady woodland jewel mushrooms, which are akin to oyster mushrooms, tasty rainbow chard and roasted baby carrots. I liked the fact that this entrée was starch-free but felt the vegetables could have been a bit hotter, and the sauce was much too sweet. Like pork shoulder, the lamb version must be properly braised to a melt-inyour mouth state of goodness. I grew up on first cut-lamb chops and shoulder so I know how it should taste. Wood’s version was tasty and very tender. It was set atop a pool of polenta, along with roasted sunchokes and fiddle head ferns. I was noshing the salted ferns as if they were popcorn or potato chips, they were that good. However, the tomato jus that was poured on top of the lamb was more like a sauce. Restaurant Review:

When ingredients used in a dish are set off by commas, you are never sure how the ingredients are to be incorporated. This trend is everywhere. Desserts at Russet are prepared by Kristin Wood, who also bakes the whole wheat honey bread for the restaurant. Almond olive oil cake ($9) is a favorite with me ever since I baked my first one years ago following Marcella Hazan’s recipe. She bakes small individual cakes in molds about half the size of a muffin tin. She added a dollop of homemade plum preserves, which emitted a marvelously tart flavor and an oval of light honey mousse. Being a sucker for ice cream with hot fudge, I ended dinner with salted caramel ice cream ($9). Salted caramel has become as popular as kale, so I wondered (continued from page 25) = Very Good = Extraordinary

how the combination would taste in an ice cream. It worked fine, but I would have liked more hot fudge sauce to set off the sweet/salty ice cream. Our competent server worked solo, so the pace of our meal was a little uneven as patrons arrived at dusk. Still, dinner at Russet was a delightful experience. Three tips of the toque to Russet. SPR

Brauhaus Schmitz’s Paprikash

C

hef Jeremy Nolen is quite busy these days preparing and unveiling Brauhaus Schmitz’s spring menu. But

Chef Jeremy Nolen

Brauhaus Schmitz Owners: Doug Hager and Kelly Schmitz Hager Opened: June 2009 718 South St. 267-909-8814 brauhausschmitz.com

things aren’t about to slow down as his German-themed establishment is gearing up for Maifest — a traditional spring festival made famous in Germany and includes dancing around a 40-foot pole — which coincides with the South Street Spring Festival (11 a.m. to 8 p.m. May 3). The Bella Vista resident is expecting customers to consume a few hundred pounds each of roasted pork and sausage. The chef is about to add the title of author next to his name as a cookbook with his German-inspired recipes is slated for its release later this year. “Nobody is doing modern renditions of German food,” Nolen said of the upcoming tome. Of course, he also is gearing up for the August opening of Whetstone, a regionally-inspired restaurant and bar that will feature in-house pickling, fermenting, house-cured charcuterie and serve a wide range of rustic favorites at 700 S. Fifth St. Brau-

haus Schmitz owners Doug and Kelly Hager are the team behind the new creation in which Nolen will serve as chef. In terms of the recipe, Nolen, 33, is keeping it simple by sharing his recently added Paprikash, which will not be on the Maifest menu. “It’s something a home cook can easily make,” he said.

INGREDIENTS: 2 half chickens 1 large or 2 small shallots 2 garlic cloves, sliced 1 lemon, juiced 1 tablespoon of salt 1/4 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper 2 tablespoons of regular Hungarian paprika 1/2 teaspoon of hot Hungarian paprika 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt

Photos by K at h r y n P o o l e

DIRECTIONS: Make the marinade first by combing all of the ingredients except the chicken. Mix the ingredients very well. Rub the pieces of chicken really well, and place in a container and marinade in the refrigerator overnight or up to two days. After 24 hours, the chicken is ready to grill. Set up the grill to medium heat. If using charcoal, make sure that you only have nice hot coals. If using gas, set it to medium. Make

sure the grill is well oiled, and place the chicken, skin side down, on the grill. Cook the chicken for about 20 minutes, making sure the skin doesn’t burn. Turn the chicken over, and continue to cook for another 20 minutes or until the legs reach an internal temperature of 155 degrees. Once the temperature is reached, remove and place on a serving platter. Serve with some great beer or white wine. Serves two. SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/ food-and-drink/features.

A Marconi dweller will look to add coaching glory to his decorated running career at the Penn Relays. ■ By Joseph Myers Review Managing Editor

T

THOUGH EVOLVING HAS become his mission, Ziegler began his journey needing to adapt to his surroundings, as his situa-

Mark Ziegler excelled at Gwynedd Mercy University after doing the same at Roman Catholic High School. S ta f f P h o t o b y J o s e p h M y e r s a n d Photo Provided by Mark Ziegler

tion initially proved a frustrating cross to bear. His cerebral palsy diagnosis came shortly after he attempted to crawl, with his parents suspecting something was off. He supposes being born with the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck could have caused the condition, but regardless of its origins, he has waged a tireless quest not to let it run his patience ragged. “It affects my left side,” he said. “I’ve had to compensate numerous times, but I think I’m a better person because, most of the time, I’ve been mindful of needing to proceed and get on with my life.” A graduate of St. Monica School, 16th and Porter streets, he confessed that his elementary school years often tested his resolve, as he engaged in up to three hours of physical therapy until seventh or eighth grade.

Requiring medicine for epilepsy, too, until the end of his time at the Marconi institution, he gained a definite sense of his religion’s promotion of persistence in the face of annoyance but often grew tired of portraying a contented child. “I had a negative mindset very often,” Ziegler said. “I’d say it stuck with me until I attended Roman.” Through his brother Steven’s best friend, also the school’s track and field team captain, he learned of the squad and decided to try out. “I wasn’t really drawn to running at

first,” he said. “It seemed a challenge and I don’t believe I was ultra confi dent in myself at the start.” As his condition had essentially kept him from engaging in team sports, Ziegler rejoiced in the group aspect of his new vocation and cherished establishing relationships with his peers. He became so engrossed in strengthening the unit’s camaraderie that he came to love their bonds more than cross-country, his first pursuit. The slowest competitor during his freshman year, he made the final three seasons exercises in excellence, even scoring an All-Catholic indoor relay selection. “From junior year on, I was committed to giving my best,” he said. “I went from someone someo who worried about pushing himself h to a person who thrived o it.” on He garnered more gusto at Gwyn ynedd Mercy University, where, ju as at Roman, he participated in just cr cross-country and indoor and outdo track and field all four years. door Pa of a quartet of cross-country Part con conference championship squads, he again proved that individuals can app approach invincibility if they summon all their defenses against their i afflictions. “I don’t really think of myself as a trailblazer,” Ziegler said of his output. trailb “I’m just trying to make use of my gifts. gifts.” Sha Sharing his wisdom has meant a great deal to the young man, also a couns counselor at a Bucks County site. Alway interested in coaching, he has Always enjoyed enjoye watching his successors approach their chores with as much care as he did d his. No matter what the Penn Relays yields, he intends to welcome each day as a chance to encourage d people l to persist and insist on applying themselves for the betterment of society. “I started out under tough circumstances,” Ziegler, whose competitive career includes two Broad Street Run efforts and the 2012 Philadelphia Marathon, said. “Kind of like in running, though, I suppose, it’s not how you start but how you finish that really counts.” SPR Contact Managing Editor Joseph Myers at jmyers@southphillyreview.com or ext. 124.

hrough his battles with cerebral palsy, Mark Ziegler has encountered occasions where condence has seemed inconstant, but he has never wavered from striving to strengthen his athletic acumen. The renowned runner and resident of the 2500 block of South Chadwick Street will continue to court coaching greatness tomorrow and Saturday when leading the Roman Catholic High School track and eld team in two events at the Penn Relays. “I have great expectations for us,” the 23-year-old said of helming his alma mater’s efforts in the 4X100 Large Schools and 4X400 Philadelphia Catholic League races. “We’ve already done quite well this year, so I’m excited to see what we can pull off.” The Marconi inhabitant is enjoying his first full season as the Cahillites’ main man, having landed his position in May as the outfit wrapped up its outdoor campaign. A “student of the sport,” he has called on his knowledge to help his charges to set seven school records. Having participated in the Franklin Fieldsituated carnival as a Roman Catholic senior, he will revel in his return and expects the experience to contribute to a fantastic outdoor slate. “I’m enthused about what we can achieve,” Ziegler said of their endeavors, noting he hopes the teenagers go under 44 seconds in their premier event and below 3:30 for the other. “The guys have the mindsets to be winners, and I respect and admire their tenacity.” Through his stint as an assistant coach, he had known the roster members and came to his position with a solid plan on what he could contribute to their growth. As most of the youths perform indoor and outdoor duties, he has intensified his bonds with them and belief in himself. “This school has a great history with regards to track and field,” he said. “I felt fortunate to contribute to it as a student, and now I’m thrilled to make progress as a coach, too.”
