t’s like a natural disaster where you lose so many members of your family at once,” Principal Joanne Capriotti said Monday morning at Vare-Washington School, 1198 S. Fifth St. “It’s going to be a challenge, but we’ll do our best to move forward.” Already adapting to newness through the spring decision by School District Superintendent Dr. William R. Hite Jr. to relocate enrollees and programs from Abigail Vare School, formerly 1621 E. Moyamensing Ave., which she led for nine years, to George Washington School, whose programs

he and the School Reform Commission elected to cease, she began handling more change last week, as her employer’s leveling process cost her and her 375 learners 6.1 teachers. Having expected to part with three figures because of the practice that reconciles summer enrollment and staff projections with first-month roster tallies, Capriotti and her colleagues are working to keep the students enamored with their studies and to intensify their attention to each pupil’s needs. The local professionals had believed the district would move instructors three weeks ago as another attempt to deal with its debt crisis, which See LEVELING page 10 >>

Word on the Street
What has been your favorite Halloween costume?
â€œCat woman. I saw a girl dressed up as her once, and it made me smile.â€? Martin Brennan, 17th and Stocker streets

School of thought To the Editor: It would be beneficial for the community around A.S. Jenks if the school was to make the decision to add gates and/or fix the fences currently surrounding the property. Many may be opposed to the idea upon first hearing it. Adults use the school lot as free parking in a difficult-to-park region. Teens use the schoolyard as a place to hang out with friends and have fun. Unfortunately, these two reasons are not enough to leave the schoolyard open night after night, and a new fence or new gates need to be installed immediately. I feel terrible for the neighbors who have to hear the kids lighting off fireworks night after night, who litter the lot only for the janitor to have to clean it every morning and for the school for having to deal with the complete destruction of the portable classrooms. The portable classroom steps and a school parking lot are not meant for teen-
agers to destruct, cause trouble in and devalue a neighborhood. Children and teens have plenty of room to hang out at Marconi Plaza just two blocks away. Unfortunately, since there have been no major incidents to report, many residents may be unaware of the trouble. I propose that the School District, or an independent investor, begin to look into adding new fence sections to block off the areas surrounding the portable nearby 13th Street and to block off the entire 12th Street point section. Residents and bar patrons will still be able to park their car in the larger schoolyard, and the teens who are up to no good will be forced out. The new trees planted around A.S. Jenks are a step in the right direction in beautifying the community, and new fencing will add to the appeal of the neighborhood by eliminating the trash and destruction created by people hanging out.

A healthier outlook To the Editor: Philadelphia City Council â€” supported by the animal advocacy nonprofit The Humane League â€” passed a resolution endorsing Meatless Mondays, the global movement that has motivated tens of thousands of people to forego meat one day a week. This resolution will go a long way toward getting Philadelphians on track to better health. Of the 10 largest cities in the U.S., Philadelphia is the most obese and most diabetic. Research indicates that those who follow plant-based diets have significantly lower rates of diabetes, hypertension, heart disease and certain cancers. Aside from supersizing waistlines and clogging arteries, the standard American diet â€” laden with meat, eggs, and dairy â€” also puts enormous strain on Philadelphiaâ€™s health-care system. Participating in Meatless Mondays will lessen the burden of chronic disease on the cityâ€™s public health infrastructure. Reducing meat consumption also

Hanging up To the Editor: Telemarketers ... where do I begin? Who are these individuals. And more importantly, who sent them to harass us and why? I am sure there is a reasonable purpose for this particular field, but at this moment in time, I cannot think of one. It must be very difficult to wake up every morning and go to a job that will cause you to be screamed at or hung up on day after day. These certain people have actually made a career out of being rude and annoying. I only hope to someday find some of their phone numbers and have the opportunity to wake them up at 7 a.m. on a Sunday, or perhaps while they are enjoying dinner with family on a holiday. My personal favorite is an automated computer voice on the other end. Really? We dread the thought of speaking to a human, what makes you think we would waste our time on a robot? But I must give them credit for changing their tactics by trying to use local area codes to fool us. Sorry, we have figured this out. It is either unknown or unavailable. I think it is quite amusing that someone with the title of â€œunavailableâ€? is trying to reach me. Doesnâ€™t unavailable mean you arenâ€™t there? So please, telemarketers of the world, if you are reading this article, do not be offended ... just stop calling. If I need something, Iâ€™ll find you. According to Websterâ€™s dictionary, some of the words to define â€œannoyingâ€? are as follows: irritating, bothersome, exasperating, and obnoxious. I just have one ... telemarketers.

Bent out of shape Two individuals are in custody after allegedly causing havoc at a Bella Vista pretzel shop. ■ By Joseph Myers Review Managing Editor
olice arrested two males Tuesday morning for their alleged role in a Bella Vista robbery. Shortly after 11 p.m. Monday, the male complainant observed two unknown black men inside his place of employment, Center City Pretzel Co., 816 Washington Ave., with one pulling a handgun from his waistband and asking who else was in the esDonte Camp tablishment, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The worker said a colleague was present and opened the cash register, leaving it open in the hope that anyone entering would realize something was Calvin Clark wrong. After allegedly placing zip ties around his wrists, the offenders supposedly kicked open an office door to look for money. A customer entered the site at 12:55 a.m. Tuesday and called for someone after noticing the open drawer, Tolliver said. With no response, he waited and soon began to converse with a police officer who entered. The law enforcer approached the other worker, who said he believed someone was in the office space with his peer. Calling for backup, the officer ordered everyone out of the room, with the complainant identifying the other men as his aggressors and the store’s probable robbers, Tolliver said. Processing the scene, authorities, who recovered two handguns and a backpack containing $393 from the register, arrested 40-year-old West Philadelphian Donte Camp and 43-year-old Bensalem inhabitant Calvin Clark. Their charges include robbery, theft, recklessly endangering another person and possession of an instrument of crime.
The wages of sin Having secured The Waterfall Room, 2015 S. Water St., the previous evening, the complainant arrived at his establishment at 10 a.m. Oct. 23 and observed holes in the roof and ceiling and a business ladder located below the ceiling hole,
Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. He also noted damage to his office door, with approximately $11,000 missing from his desk. Watching the site’s surveillance cameras with a business manager, the owner identified Jason Moncrief, an ex-employee, as the alleged thief. At approximately 10 a.m. Friday, authorities arrested the 21-year-old resident of the 2500 block of South Philip Street on the 2300 block of South American Street and after executing a search warrant, recovered approximately $6,500 from the suspect, Tolliver said. They charged the Whitman resident, who awaits a Nov. 14 preliminary hearing, with possession on an instrument of crime, theft, criminal trespassing, burglary and criminal mischief.
Cycles of violence Bicyclists in Dickinson Square West used their rides to escape capture following an attack Sunday. Their male victim reported that at 12:12 a.m. he encountered the four figures while he walked southbound between Tasker and Dickinson streets on Sixth Street, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. As they approached him, the complainant suspected he would face trouble and declared “Just take whatever you want; just leave my ID and my phone.” Minus any provocation, they began to punch and kick him. Falling to the ground, the defenseless individual suffered additional punches, with one of the aggressors reaching into his pockets to rid him of his Cricket Android phone, $400 and his identification, which he received back before the unknown males grabbed their bikes and fled northbound along Sixth Street, Tolliver said. The complainant, who suffered a lump on his forehead and a scrape underneath his chin, described his attackers as Hispanic, 19 to 22 years old and wearing gray hoodies. No further details were available as of press time. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-685-1635, text PPDTIP (773847) or visit phillypolice.com/forms.
Computer glitch A technology-craving thief made off with an iPad Friday night in South of South. A female complainant reported at 7:21 p.m. that an unknown male offender approached her while she waited for a bus at 15th Street and Washington Avenue, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South De-
POLICE REPORT tective Division said. The stranger stated “Whatever you’re texting must be important,” drawing a laugh from her as she continued to look at her phone. He then asked “You see this right here?” as he reached into his waist area. Having observed that she also had an iPad, the mischievous figure told her he would shoot her if she did not give him the gadget, Tolliver said. She complied and parted with the computer, with the thief fleeing northbound on 15th Street then Carpenter Street. She described him as black, 6 foot to 6-foot-3, 160 pounds; wearing a dark coat, a similar hoodie and knit hat with a brim; having a light complexion and brown eyes and being clean-shaven. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-685-1635, text PPDTIP (773847) or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

him once in the right forearm, causing a severe laceration for which he required suturing at Pennsylvania Hospital. Authorities arrested 50-year-old Alvin Bryant at his abode and transported him to Methodist Hospital, where he received treatment for a minor cut to his left thumb, Tolliver said. Police charged him with possession of an instrument of crime, making terroristic threats, assault and recklessly endangering another person. He awaits a Nov. 14 preliminary hearing.

Triple the trouble
Police are searching for two men for their roles in Queen Village- and Point Breezesituated robberies. The second incident, which accompanies this video, involved a female walking along the 700 block of Passyunk Avenue at 8:10 a.m. Oct. 19. Heading to her job, she encountered two unknown males, with the first pointing a gun at her and the second demanding money, police said. After obtaining her purse and cell phone, they fled on Fitzwater Street to a parked gray or green Toyota Camry to leave the area. Surveillance video showed the first suspect going through the purse and then discarding it after he had removed items of value, police said. The complainant described the main offender as black, 18 to 20 years old and 6 foot; having a dark complexion and medium build; wearing a dark hoodie and dark pants; and armed with a handgun. She classified the other as Hispanic, 18 to 20 years old and 5-foot-10; having a light complexion and a thin build; and wearing a gray hoodie. Authorities are also looking to identify the two for an 11 p.m. Oct. 17 robbery on the 700 block of South Fourth Street and a 6 a.m. Oct. 22 incident on the 1300 block of South Fifth St. In the first, they rid a man of credit cards, and iPhone and $15 before using the same vehicle to escape, and in the second, they harassed a female and obtained her debit cards, keys and a cell phone, also calling on the car to flee, police said.

Police arrested an alleged match-happy man for an Oct. 24 fire in Newbold. Responding to an arson call at Sunoco APlus Gas Station, 2102 S. 17th St., last week, they met with a witness who stated that while he was working at the site, he had the alleged arsonist ask for a book of matches, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. Denying his request, he watched him exit the store, with the figure purportedly remaining outside and receiving the desired items from a cigarette-purchasing customer. The employee contends he saw the offender strike a match and light a newspaper while standing next to a Dumpster, Tolliver said. After he observed the man’s alleged placement of the paper into the bin and subsequent flight from the scene after he placed a call to authorities, he provided a detailed description to the law enforcers. Acting on flash information, they stopped the alleged wrongdoer on the 2100 block of South Bouvier Street, with positive identification from the worker leading them to arrest Derrick Curry, a 37-year-old resident of the 2000 block of Tasker Street, and charged him with arson, causing/risking a catastrophe and criminal mischief. The Fire Department extinguished the fire, which did no damage to the receptacle.

Landscaping a greener path The neighborhood could add a park to complement its other thriving components.
“Every dollar gets us closer to that goal and gets the park where we need it to be,” Vidas said.
■ By Lauren Hertzler Review Contributor
hen their neighborhood association asked South of South residents what they wanted more of in their community, the answer was simple, green space. Where to put the green space was the tough question, as new development for houses or retail space in the area’s vacant land is constantly being issued. That’s why 2nd District Councilman Kenyatta Johnson is backing the South of South Neighborhood Association, 1901 Christian St., in its mission to turn the empty assembled lots on the northwest corner of 17th and Carpenter streets into a park dubbed Carpenter Green. “Carpenter Green is a great project for the Graduate Hospital community because it takes advantage of one of the last opportunities for meaningful green space in the neighborhood,” Johnson said. “This project will transform a plot of land, that long plagued neighbors with blighted buildings and illegal dumping, into a beautiful place for families to congregate.” Otherwise, third-year SOSNA board member Lauren Vidas said, the lot would likely turn into “another eight rowhomes.” “And we have a lot of rowhomes,” Andrew Dalzell, SOSNA’s fourth-year programs coordinator, added. The location at 17th and Carpenter streets is an ideal spot for a park, Vidas, of 15th and Montrose streets, said, with its proximity to Carpenter Square, a major new development being pursued on the southeast corner, and because of its proximity to Edwin M. Stanton School, 1700 Christian St. “We thought it was very important to provide green space close to where kids are,” Vidas said. Stanton’s playground is undergoing a redesign, she noted, and SOSNA is trying to figure out a way to integrate both spaces so they’re cohesive. SOSNA is working through the Community Design Collaborative to make this idea a reality. The green space also provides a great opportunity to improve on stormwater management. Vidas said the Philadelphia Water Department, as well as every department in the city, has been “overwhelmingly supportive.” “I think Councilman Johnson’s energy about the project was contagious to them,” she said. She divulged the entire South of South
neighborhood, which stretches from South Street to Washington Avenue and Broad Street to the Schuylkill River, has only two green spaces. Compare that to the combined neighborhoods of Hawthorne, Bella Vista and Queen Village, which together have only a slightly larger footprint than South of South, yet still have more than 10 passive park spaces. “A couple years ago, SOSNA did a pretty expansive poll in the neighborhood to try to figure out what people felt was the most important priority for the organization to pursue,” Vidas said. “Pretty much at the top of the list was green space. That’s something the organization has taken to heart.” A petition to see neighbor’s thoughts on implementing the green space at 17th and Carpenter streets showed that more than 100 people were in favor and only two were opposed. “If we don’t set this plot of land aside for a park, future generations of the neighborhood are going to look back and see that we missed a huge chance,” Dalzell, of 20th and Fitzwater streets, said, adding that the park space will help increase the values of near homes. With Johnson’s help, SOSNA entered into an agreement with the City of Phila-

delphia Redevelopment Authority to set aside the land for green space. That gave the group and community members access to the lot to put up a fence and do some basic maintenance. Before, construction debris and garbage covered the empty lot. “When it looks like just an empty lot, people will treat it like such,” Vidas said. “When you start to beautify it, then there’s sort of a social norm that they’re crossing [if they litter].” “People would use the land however they wanted, whether it was for dumping or for sleeping or for letting their dog run around,” Dalzell added. So far, a group of about 20 SOSNA members have hosted two volunteer cleanups and hired Ready, Willing & Able, 1211 Bainbridge St., to do a sweep. “They whipped that lot into shape in like an hour,” Vidas said of the organization’s workers. But, Vidas noted, the desire to get the fence down and construction finished as quickly as possible should urge people to donate.
KNOWING THE CITY is in a financial crunch, SOSNA and the community have committed to fundraising for the park project. “We’ve exhibited a history, we’ve put together a record of public, private partnerships that have been able to raise money and finance what would typically be city roles,” Vidas said. Before SOSNA starts asking for money, though, it wants to talk design with the community. “It’s a little bit of a chicken-and-egg kind of thing,” Dalzell said. “To be able to get the money to pay for the design services, you need to have something [tangible] that’s attractive so we can apply for grants and we can show with confidence this is what we want.” Luckily, architecture students in the neighborhood volunteered their time to design three basic, yet distinct concept plans based on feedback from the community. The next step is to take the preliminary designs on “tour” in the neighborhood – placing the designs in ccommunity institutions – to really capture w what residents want. A survey has found the community most wants the park to have landscaping, lighting, w sseeding, trash facilities and sustainable design, Dalzell said, which has been beneficial to know while planning the initial designs. SOSNA is aiming to canvas the designs during the winter, work on a final design with everyone’s feedback and be able to solicit a professional architect by spring. “Once the weather warms up, people are going to be more eager to get outside and get their hands dirty,” Vidas said, so she’s making sure SONSA takes care of all its administrative duties within the next few months. She said several architects have already expressed interest in working on the new park, which is a good thing for these neighborhood residents, who are ready for a haven between the concrete. “SOSNA’s role is stimulating community and economic development and a park project like this does both because it brings a place for people to come together and build those ties to make the community strong,” Vidas said. “If we didn’t do anything now, that opportunity would be lost.” SPR

continued from page 1 reached $304 million at its worst, but the educational overseer delayed implementation to analyze the proposed shifts. It had foreseen Vare-Washington welcoming close to 600 registrants, so when roughly two-thirds of that total started lessons last month, Capriotti received another test of her administrative might, which she is passing courtesy of a tight-knit feeling at her Dickinson Square West facility. “I’m definitely not saying it can’t be done,” she said of helping all but kindergarten, fifth and seventh grades to adjust to the modifications, which include combining classes and seeing the institution’s teacher-leader and intervention teacher, who had acted as the dean of students, venture to classrooms to provide instruction. “Some parents have come to apologize, but there’s a certain level of comfort among us that I think will carry us through.” Along with coping with the alterations, which Capriotti initiated Oct. 24, the VareWashington community is contending with a $203,000 reduction in its Title 1 allotment, a source of money via the Elementary and Secondary Education Act that, among other measures, looks to meet “the educational needs of low-achieving children in our nation’s highest poverty schools, limited English proficient children, migratory children, children with disabilities, Indian children, neglected or delinquent children and young children in need of reading assistance,” according to the U.S. Department of Education. With the district having classified 95.3 percent of last year’s matriculators as “economically disadvantaged” and 14.2 percent of them as English language learners, the slashed funds figure to be another dilemma, but thus far Capriotti is managing the situation, with no tinkering to the curricula needed. With hundreds of schools hankering for financial assistance, the district is seeking $133 million from the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers, whose contract expired Aug. 31, and received word from Gov. Tom Corbett Oct. 16 that he would endow it with a one-time $45 million state grant. Hite, however, revealed last week the politician’s bequest will not go toward hiring teachers. It instead will restore up to 80 guidance counselors, fund instrumental music and sports through the spring, aid Individualized Education Programs for those with learning differences and rest in reserve for payments to charter schools, which preliminary reports say might have higher enrollment numbers this year.

but what about our abilities to interact with learners the ways we need to? Sometimes I think we’re reduced to crowd control.” Having helped to organize an Oct. 23 protest rally outside the school, the Whitman inhabitant knows the power of perseverance and will honor her garment’s sentiment by bettering her charges’ lives. “We knew change would occur,” Kramer, with 139 district teachers transferred, said. “No matter how drastic our losses, we have to fight for these kids.” Practicing civil disobedience appealed to the registrants and employees at George W. Sharswood School, 2300 S. Second St., too, with likewise frustrated figures rallying outside their building Friday. Having departed for summer vacation with 560 students, Principal Maureen Skalski returned to her Whitman haunt last month with 509 pupils, with 36 additional learners in two Head Start classes. Having said farewell to a pair of counselors, she and her team lost two educators and a prep specialist last week, resulting in larger, yet within contractual limits, second and fifth grades. “It’s just unbelievable we’re in such a bare-bones situation,” the 15th-year leader said. “We’re trying to pace ourselves to give our kids the best.” Accustomed to gaining an educator annually because of bulging enrollment, Sharswood has entered unfamiliar territory, with the departures coupling with the lost counselors to forge a need for the remaining individuals to take on different roles. With many students requiring individualized education plans and others needing encouragement in dealing with home and school matters, Skalski is finding the Sharswood community has grown closer as a family, leaving her simultaneously sad and triumphant. “We’re all sharing the burden,” she said, adding the emphasis she is placing on aiding eighth graders in their high school application process. The pending graduates and the sixth and seventh grades extended their display of unity beyond South Philly Friday, marching to the district’s North Broad Street headquarters to present persuasive essays to Hite. Skalski praised their maturity, seeing them as reflections of the commitment to self-improvement that any education should yield. That they find their pursuit of a stable environment compromised is compelling her to feel fortunate she has committed colleagues. “They’ve stepped up significantly,” Skalski, who integrated classes last week, said. “We want to see these children grow. It’s still early into the adjustment period, but I’m liking how we’re bonding.” SPR Contact Managing Editor Joseph Myers at firstname.lastname@example.org or ext. 124.

A Lower Moyamensing thespian’s latest role explores familial inﬂuence on gaining self-awareness. ■ By Joseph Myers Review Managing Editor
longtime fan of William Shakespeare, Akeem Davis can especially appreciate Polonius, the “Hamlet” character who tells his son Laertes “To thine own self be true.” Fascinated with being honest to himself and his craft, the Lower Moyamensing actor is baring his soul for Simpatico Theatre Project as Oshoosi Size, a parolee seeking redemption and rejuvenation in Tarell Alvin McCraney’s “The Brothers Size.” “It resonates as a show that addresses how willing men are to access and assess themselves,” the 26-year-old resident of the 900 block of Winton Street said of the work, the second element of McCraney’s The Brother/Sister Plays trilogy. “I’ve reached a point where I love being as open and truthful as possible, so I have a complete connection with this role.” Tabbing the task his best theatrical effort, Davis offered a litany of adjectives for Oshoosi, including “ambitious,” “kinetic,” “viral” and “visceral.” In adding his energy to the production, with stagings through Sunday at the Walnut Street Theatre’s Studio 5, the performer is receiving tutelage from director, roommate and Barrymore Award winner James Ijames, his collaborator on a spring handling of the piece at Norristown’s Theatre Horizon. Tacking fraternity and identity, the script appealed to Davis on many levels, including his ability to liken his enthusiasm for growth to Oshoosi’s and its inherent call to value one’s relatives. “He could be the representative for wayward individuals,” he said of Os-

LIFESTYLES hoosi, who looks to evolve through interactions with his brother Ogun. “The whole project aligns with my thinking that actors offer their humanity and wield personal swords when communicating with their audiences. With this script, you definitely win.” A devout Christian, too, Davis enjoys that the opus helps him to explore the Bible-based inquiry “Am I my brother’s keeper?,” which Cain offers to God when the latter wonders about the former’s sibling Abel, whom he had killed. Believing the answer to anyone who poses the question should be a resounding “Yes,” the local figure sees himself as a vessel and an instrument for preaching the nuances of manhood, especially the African-American experience, which he would love to have gain more stage-based treatments. “Social issues are worked out when cultural conflicts come together,” he said of how “The Brothers Size” encourages discoveries of one’s talent for handling toils. “I think theater is one of the purest ways to commune because there’s a sort of catharsis that impresses upon us that feeling that we’re all in this together.” DAVIS BEGAN SEEKING such camaraderie as a 6-year-old Miami resident. The Sun-

shine State native, a self-described “talkative kid,” encountered few struggles with his standard school curriculum, with his extra energy needing an outlet. He excelled in speech classes, which exposed him to oratory contests, and gradually envisioned gaining standout status. “The initial pull was that it was fun and creative,” he said of acting. “I believed my personality served me well in being in larger groups, with respect for oneon-one dynamics coming later, which is something that benefits me now.” Accumulating influences such as Shakespeare, Paul Laurence Dunbar, Langston Hughes and August Wilson, Davis came to ponder how his childhood and adolescent obsessions could grow more fervent. Wondering what life, and in particular his existence, would be without theater, he shrugged off any thoughts of being a tax attorney or an accountant and committed to acting as his vocation. “All I want is to be honest,” he said. “I want to be a conduit for great messages, and if I keep myself open to uncovering more about my part in the larger scheme, I think I can be somebody.” Davis matriculated at Florida State
University, graduating in 2009 with a bachelor’s in humanities, with a theater studies concentration. Viewing acting as a science wherein contributors engage in theatrical alchemy by going from a stone to gold via the text, he elected to experiment with his sentiment in the District of Columbia before arriving in University City in ’11. “Two years in Philly have really been worth five because I feel I’ve been able to ground myself,” Davis, whose landing a Fighting for Democracy job at the National Constitution Center lured him to Philadelphia, said. “There’ve been so many ups and lulls, and I still feel I’m cutting my teeth while being aware of the great potential here.” The thespian moved to South Philly two months ago, honing his bite among a thriving, welcoming artistic community that has made him feel more vibrant than ever before. That boundless enthusiasm has caused him to conclude his receptivity to life’s lessons has reached its apex, with his spirituality and desire for meaningful exchanges as compelling forces. With a lengthening résumé that includes turns at the Adrienne Theatre, the
Malvern-based People’s Light & Theatre and the Philadelphia Artists’ Collective, Davis yearns for more mind-altering and soul-enriching roles. Eager to groom his successors, too, he assists Philadelphia Young Playwrights, with whom he will soon embark on a tour to tout the entity’s monologue competition victors, continuing a nearly two-year partnership that has included time at Southwark School, 1835 S. Ninth St. “Seeing their enthusiasm is awesome,” he said. “They’re open to so much.” Davis likewise enjoys novelty. Wrapping up a show about brotherhood, he is starting his writing career with a piece on fatherhood and also yearns to adapt “Othello,” taking Shakespeare’s titular general and transforming him into a boxer. Having commenced his scribbling late last year, he looks forward to polishing it once “The Brothers Size” concludes. “I feel fortunate to have these opportunities,” Davis said. “I wish similar happiness and curiosity to everyone.” SPR For tickets, visit simpaticotheatre.org.

ing funnier than someone getting shot in the face by an old codger trying to prove his manhood. Maybe for good measure, someone could have figured out how to interfere with Cheney’s pacemaker, oh not for long, just long enough to get a really hearty laugh. Is roasting Cheney really a challenge? ... What are the Vegas odds the Kim Kardashian and Kanye West marriage lasting, at least long enough for when this column is printed for it still to be relevant? I thought Kanye’s proposal to Kim was surprisingly spontaneous. I mean, other than that he just happened to have a 16-carat rock to give her and AT&T Park just happened to be available. One can currently rent Kim’s sex tape On Demand (I just happened to be scrolling through the TV menu, that’s how I know, wise guy). ... Bishop Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst of Germany has been temporarily expelled by Pope Francis for spending $42 million to build himself a new residence. I hear he wanted to call the new edifice, St. Revel. Next up, Christine Flowers writes another column explaining how this shows the new pope is really a conservative despite what one reads in the liberal media because he’s not into spending other folks’ money. ... Today is Halloween. Who knew Halloween would become one of the most controversial holidays on the calendar? Some folks argue it’s akin to worshipping Satan and now it seems some folks are arguing Halloween should not be celebrated in secular schools because it is too religious. Can everyone just lighten up? Halloween is all about the candy if one’s a kid and if one’s an adult, it’s all about finding out whether you are a transgender (not that there’s anything wrong with it)... Is there really someone around here that misses Larry Mendte? According to the Daily News, he left his local gig for a New York TV station, but now says he will pop up in this area soon. So will the flu. ... Do we really need a milkshake with beer and bacon in it? There seems to be a trend going around of combining every unhealthy ingredient in one snack. Example: Combine a milkshake with a cannoli as its main ingredient; or a Wendy’s Baconater pretzel burger, which combines a double cheeseburger on a salty pretzel bun with six strips of bacon. I think the idea is either one dies quickly after one serving or becomes inoculated for life against heart disease. If we can have these snacks classified as a vaccine, maybe Medicare will cover it. I understand every Wendy’s will have an electronic defibrillator on the premises and a low-paid nurse. Nicki Minaj says she found her “American Idol” experience scary. My Uncle Nunzi told me that he finds Nicki Minaj scary. SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/opinion/ cardella.
Diana (Mary Steenburgen) becomes quite chummy with two of the film’s chief male characters, including Paddy (Robert De Niro).
Worth the trip ■ By R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer
hile “Last Vegas” indeed spends scene after scene poking fun at its stars’ ages, don’t be fooled by the film’s tepid, off-putting, fogie-gag-filled trailer. This lovely lark of a movie handily exceeds expectations, becoming more than something easily written off as “The Hangover” for men of a certain age, and proving a warm and funny and entry in the new wave of 55-plus cinema. To call a film “harmless” sounds like faint praise, but in this case, let’s consider it a smooth way of acknowledging that “Last Vegas” doesn’t merely play like a paycheck gig for its dazzling cast. Headlined by four Oscar winners who are legends in their own right, the occasionally risqué comedy follows lifelong friends Billy (Michael Douglas), Paddy (Robert De Niro), Archie (Morgan Freeman) and Sam (Kevin Kline) as they rally together and hit Sin City to throw a bachelor party for Billy, who’s about to marry a bombshell young enough to be his granddaughter. Things get complicated when luminous lounge singer Diana (fellow Oscar winner Mary Steenburgen) enters the picture, and catches the eyes and hearts of Billy and Paddy. “Last Vegas” may not be Oscar bait itself, but it lands nearly every joke in its cheeky script, including one in which a smart-mouthed punk is told the four men are mob bosses, and another that sees De Niro get face-humped by the Speedorocking frontman of LMFAO. The film is a major rebound for director Jon Turteltaub, whose last effort was the abysmal “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” but it
shines brightest because of its stars, who are always steering it away from possible pitfalls. Few actors have played drunk more amusingly than Freeman does amid a club scene, wherein Archie’s had a few too many Red Bull and vodkas, and Kline is a riot as a man whose longtime wife gives him a free pass to cheat. The inevitable outcome of this offer is primed for maudlin bunk, but Kline plays it with poignant truth before delivering another zinger. That’s “Last Vegas” in a nutshell: Big heart, big laughs, big fun.

One of the best films of the year that no one’s bothered to tell you about, Brian De Palma’s “Passion,” a remake of the French thriller “Love Crime,” is a swoony, feverdreamy delight, starring Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace as sparring co-workers with an odd attraction and a sea of intrigue to wade through. What’s real? What’s not? Who cares? De Palma’s hypnotic technique, paired with his game duo of leading ladies, leaves you intoxicated.

f you are a Republican, you can’t complain Obamacare isn’t working if you yourself did everything you could to make sure it doesn’t work. ... If you are a Democrat, you can’t defend the lousy Obamacare website by saying the president didn’t know about it. That doesn’t make it better; it makes the president look worse. ... If you don’t have health care, you can’t complain about it becoming mandatory to obtain health care because when you get sick, the rest of us pay for your care in the ER. ... If you have health care, why the hell are you complaining about Obamacare’s making it mandatory for freeloaders to buy health care, too? The “freedom” you’re protecting is the freedom for you to pay for the uninsured’s health care... If I’m Kathleen Sibelius, the secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, I’m not going on the “Jon Stewart Show” for at least 10 years. ... Why did Vanity Fair think it necessary to airbrush Kate Winslet? What next, airbrushing the Mona Lisa? ... And why did she marry a guy named Ned Rocknroll? Was it because I wasn’t available? Kate, there were better choices out there. ... Are you as tired as me that the mayor and City Council can’t agree on how to get the money our schools need? Gentlemen, we’ve got a one-party system in Philadelphia. If you can’t make that work, what’s next, a dictatorship? ... Memo to Daniel Snyder, the owner of the pro football Washington Redskins: You claim you don’t want to change the team’s nickname because it has a “proud” history? The proud history to which you refer includes the refusal of former owner George Preston Marshall to put an AfricanAmerican player on his team until 1962. When Marshall died in ’69 he stipulated, according to The Daily Beast, that not one cent go to any charity or foundation that supports integration. So the Redskins not only use a racist slur for the team’s nickname, their previous owner was a racist. Suggestion to Mr. Snyder: you might want to change your team’s name to the Schmucks in honor of him and you. ... Former Secretary of State Dick Cheney was recently “roasted” at the Plaza Hotel in New York City. Predictably there were jokes about waterboarding and hunting accidents. Really? I’ve always loved a good waterboarding joke, and there’s noth-

Stuff the peppers lightly with the beef stufﬁng, and place them into the baking dish, leaning against each other. Drizzle the remaining olive oil over the peppers. Bake until the peppers are tender and the stufﬁng is cooked through and juicy, about 45 minutes. Serve hot. SPR
his time of year, pumpkins appear in windows, on front stoops or even come walking down the street. However, on this Halloween night, in which the words “trick or treat” serve as the popular holiday greeting, one often assumes the answer must be delivered from candy land. Domino DeFrancesco, of the 1700 block of South 10th Street, takes a more creative approach when addressing the popular phrase, as her “cute” Stuffed Jack-O’-Lantern Peppers recipe is a popular tradition with her big Italian family.
INGREDIENTS: 1/2 cup of uncooked white rice 2 tablespoons of olive oil, divided 1/8 cup each of minced carrots and celery 6 bell peppers (any color), washed 1/2 pound of ground beef 1/4 pound of pancetta or lightly smoked bacon, diced 1-1/2 cups of prepared marinara sauce 1/4 cup of red wine

La Stanza’s Scallops with Fettuccine
Chef Ted Nephew
La Stanza Owner: John Tripodi Opened: 1999 2001 W. Oregon Ave. 215-271-0801 lastanzapa.com
a Stanza Restaurant is one of many establishments to receive the “Restaurant Impossible” treatment from celebrity chef Robert Irvine, but the Brit isn’t the one running the kitchen. That responsibility falls in the hands of Passyunk Square resident Ted Nephew. Instead of attending a fancy culinary school, the Michigan native mastered his techniques through several courses of on-the-job training. At age 20, he started cooking at a fast-food restaurant. “I learned about proper food handling,” the resident of 11th and Ellsworth streets said. He stayed on the cooking path by taking a position at North Jersey-based Front Street Trattoria, and did some bartending. “I thought I wanted to be a bartender,” he said. By the time he turned 30, the path became a little clearer as Nephew started baking bread from scratch out of his home.
“It kind of opened the passion [for cooking], and it took off from there,” he said. Prior to La Stanza, where he started as a part-time chef, the now 48-year-old enjoyed two stints at Sabrina’s Cafe, 910 Christian St. Now, he is preparing Italian dishes with an American twist, like his Scallops with Fettuccine.
INGREDIENTS: 1/2 cup of fettuccine, cooked according to package directions 1 tablespoon of olive oil 1/2 cup of a plum tomato, diced 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar 1/4 cup of pancetta, chopped 3 large scallops, cut in half 2 cloves of garlic 1 tablespoon of fresh rosemary, chopped
Saturday November 16, 2013 Ss. Neumann-Goretti Presents
2 ounces of fresh goat cheese Handful of baby spinach Sprinkling of Parmesan
DIRECTIONS: Marinate the tomato in the vinegar. Coat the bottom of a sauté pan with the olive oil. Add the pancetta, and cook over a medium-high heat for about one minute, until crisp. Add the scallops, and cook until they get a nice sear, about one minute on each side. Add the
garlic. Remove the pancetta and scallops from the pan, top with the oil and set aside. Add the tomatoes to the pan, and cook for about one minute. Add the cooked pancetta and scallops along with the rosemary. Add the pasta and an additional drizzle of the oil. Add the spinach, remove from the heat and stir. Top with the goat cheese, a couple pieces of pancetta and a sprinkling of Parmesan. SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/ food-and-drink/features.

Neither team mounted much offense on the next few possessions, with Prep Charter, which finished second in its five-squad division in scoring, proving especially frustrated. Enter Strothers again. Accepting the pigskin from junior quarterback Vian Dolo, whose 51 rushing yards would complement his season-high 187 through the air, the North Philly resident scurried 61 yards for another touchdown. He and his peers, though, immediately met disappointment when Roxborough’s Hank Adens took the ensuing kickoff 76
yards to make it 14-12. Taking that lead to the locker room, the Huskies discussed their tentative play and lack of cohesion, with promises not to let the moment overwhelm them. “They haven’t done much,” Hand said. “Stay intense, and do your jobs. It’s ours.” CONTINUING TO RELY on the run, the Huskies, having advanced the second-half kickoff to midfield, promptly began to confound the guests, with Dolo gaining 15 yards and Strothers accounting for the other 35, including a 28-yard scoring gallop, to increase their bulge to eight. Re-
at southphillyreview.com/blogs.php covering a fumble on their next defensive stand, they decided to switch their focus to providing aerial assaults. Having tied the city record with four touchdown grabs Oct. 3 versus the School of the Future Firebirds, senior wide receiver Curan Simmons hauled in a Dolo heave and raced for a 43-yard momentumboosting score, with Strothers adding a two-point conversion. With 14 points in two minutes and 42 seconds, the hosts intensified their pursuit of the ball, knowing how easily they had yielded points after touchdowns in an up-and-down first half. “We knew we had to be the aggressors,” Hand said of the quick crusade to widen the gap and dishearten the Indians. “Once we put up that third quarter, we felt we’d really come together and got a good sense of what we’ll need to go forward.” Simmons again showed his team’s success could depend on how many times it targets him. Having entered with 38 catches and three games of at least 100 yards, he further infuriated Roxborough by snaring a 22-yard scoring strike on fourth-and-7 and capped the fruitful third frame by accepting another on-target ball from Dolo for a 49-yard score. His third touchdown took his season yardage total to 810, a tally that places him second on the Public League’s single-season receiving yardage list, with West Philadelphia’s Eric Leslie having amassed 861 yards three years ago. “For me and Curan to have such big games, the offensive line had to step up, which it did,” Strothers, whose 13 carries netted 163 yards, said. “They helped me to be a big man and step up for my team.” Certain to enjoy the kudos that comes with making history, he and the others will require even more maturity to topple the 8-1 Panthers, who have surrendered only 13 points in five AA games. Strothers believes 48 dedicated minutes to match the 12 from Friday’s third-quarter semifinal will be the difference. “We have to forget about the last play if we do something wrong,” he said. “We have to play with all our hearts. I’m looking forward to it already.” SPR Contact Managing Editor Joseph Myers at firstname.lastname@example.org or ext. 124. Comment at southphillyreview.com/sports/features.

inutes before the Prep Charter Huskies, 1928 Point Breeze Ave., took to the South Philadelphia super site, 10th and Bigler streets, Friday afternoon, coach David Hand told them not to fear achieving greatness. Slow to exorcise any timidity, the West Passyunk-based footballers used a frightening display of third-quarter efficiency to trounce the Roxborough Indians 4012, earning their secondary education site’s inaugural playoff win and a spot in Saturday’s Public League AA title game versus the Imhotep Charter Panthers. (6 p.m. at the Northwest super site, 1100 E. Sedgwick St.) “That’s the way to make history!” the first-year leader, a long-time St. Joe’s Prep defensive guru, exclaimed to the excited teenagers, who notched their sixth victory, with the visitors also having served as prey in a 26-6 loss Sept. 20, against two defeats. “I want you to feel proud and be ready to prepare for Imhotep because we owe them.” The Huskies will return to the Germantown-based field seeking to score a monumental upset, having shown little resistance against the host Panthers, last year’s AA Subregional and City champions, in Oct. 19’s 61-7 throttling. With other recent lopsided losses to their upcoming foes not far from their minds, the local athletes cannot afford to experience lulls when they take the field as massive underdogs and will not dwell on mistakes if Quadir Strothers has his way. “Today we just wanted to start off playing well right from the jump,” the sophomore running back said. “We struggled for a bit, but we got it together and used our hearts. That’s what it’s going to take to beat Imhotep.” Having roared when receiving Hand’s instruction to put away their opponents early, the Huskies showed their emphasis on unity by chanting “One team, one body, one mind, one soul.” Normally a secondary ball carrier, Strothers sought to honor his coach’s command by jolting 55 yards for a touchdown on their first play. With an accomplished defensive background, Hand, however, grew agitated
