It was a celebration, and her appreciation was contagious as she stood in front of a recently restored

S t d ’ P Saturday’s Point i tB Breeze Breeze-based b based d mural dedication has restored a fresh coat of life to a piece created by a late, prominent artist. Keith Haring mural facing 22nd Street named “We the Youth” — the late artist’s only collaborative public mural that is still intact at its original site. Thanks to the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, the 26-year-old mural is in tip-top shape

again for Covington and her neighbors to enjoy for decades to come. It was 1987 when Haring and a group of teens from CityKids, a New York organization founded just two years prior to engage youth, skipped town to the City of Brotherly Love

andd partneredd with i h Brandywine B d i Workshop, 730 S. Broad St., to create the iconic mural in celebration of the 200th anniversary of the U.S. Constitution. Haring, known for his street art, gave South Philly a taste of pop art in a piece that celebrates diversity. “We the Youth” has an energetic and joyful feel, as it depicts Haring’s signature dancing figures in the brightest of colors. Sean Stoops, of 16th and Tasker streets, described it as a piece of art that speaks to peoSee HARING MURAL page 10 >>

Did you vote on Election Day?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always vote because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a civic responsibility to do and part of being a citizen. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a right that people fought for to gain.â&#x20AC;? Frank Natale, 1600 block of South Juniper Street

â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, because I feel like I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to vote if I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that much about the candidates. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t watch much coverage, so I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have enough information.â&#x20AC;? Robert Pizzo, 15th and Wolf streets

Peeve-backs These are excerpts from the online conversation pertaining to Columnist Tom Cardellaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Oct. 31 column â&#x20AC;&#x153;Autumn peeves.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;So no one can complain about Obamacare? The GOP tried to stop it altogether, and that oneyear delay on the individual mandate doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sound like a bad idea. Your strawman comes this time in the form of a bad guy â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the freeloader. The healthy guy who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want insurance is a freeloader, according to you, because of the possibility he may need health care during the period he decided he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want coverage. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a freeloader if he has money for health care and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buy insurance. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t qualify for free hospital care if you have a certain income. Tom, no matter which way you spin it, President Obama lied. NBC released a 2009 [report] which directly contradicts the â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can

keep your health careâ&#x20AC;? lie. At best it was intentionally misleading but hands down Obama lied. And Dick Cheney was former defense secretary and V.P., never was Secretary of State. We live in Philadelphia, Cheney grew up in Wyoming. They hunt, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so you can drop [the] sarcasm or do I have to name Democrats who hunt?â&#x20AC;? Kevin Metz via southphillyreview.com

â&#x20AC;&#x153;About your comment on Pope Francis and his expulsion of a German bishop for his lavish overspending and your snide suggestion that Daily News columnist Christine Flowers will use this incident to write a column saying this proves the pope is a really a conservative? Where do you get that idea? Miss Flowers has defended this pope on more than one occasion in the media for his wisdom and humility. It has nothing to do with

spending other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s money or political affiliations. What this pope really is is a breath of fresh air.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what the comment section is for. And Tom comes on the thread and defends what he says. I respect that.â&#x20AC;?

Gloria Endres via southphillyreview.com

Kevin Metz via southphillyreview.com

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kevin - The mandate is built on the very Republican idea that the taxpayer should not foot the bill for your treatment in the ER if you can afford to buy health coverage. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an idea that underlay Bob Doleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposals and Mitt Romney as well ... Gloria â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Please ... please ... I made no jab at the Pope who is a breath of fresh air, but his liberal statements are always followed by a Flowers column claiming the liberal media is misinterpreting the Pope. Ms. Flowers can take it as well as she gives it out. Yes, this Pope is a breath of fresh air. Jeez!â&#x20AC;?

aw enforcement figures arrived on the 1200 block of East Passyunk Avenue at 2:10 a.m. Sunday and met two male complainants, who were suffering from head lacerations, the Police Public Affairs Unit said. Three New Jersey inhabitants allegedly confronted the victims over an issue with the amount of space they had to travel along the sidewalk, with witRyan Dorney nesses saying they used their fists and the complainants’ bicycle locks to strike them before fleeing. With the help of a Delaware River Port Authority supervisor who heard a description of the escape vehicle, police arChristopher rested Ryan Dorney, 25, of Franklinville, ChristoEaton pher Eaton, 28, of Sewell, and Anthony Regalbuto, 24, of Clayton, at approximately 4 a.m. on the 3700 block of South Front Street and charged them with aggravated assault, criminal conspiracy and reAnthony lated offenses, the Police Regalbuto Public Affairs Unit said. As of press time, Dorney was being held on $50,000 bail while Eaton and Regalbuto remained in custody on $25,000 bail. All three have a scheduled Nov. 19 preliminary hearing. Authorities transported the complainants to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital for the cuts and possible concussions, with their release coming later that day.

Danger zone A male became a robbery victim in Newbold Saturday, with his aggressor also issuing a stern warning. The complainant noted that while walking westbound along Ellsworth Street heading toward Broad Street at 3:18 a.m., he had an unknown man approach him from behind, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The stranger grabbed him by the neck and heaved him to the ground, with the sur-

prised individual rising to run away. The armed attacker sped after him and caught up with him at Broad and Ellsworth streets, removing $103 from his pants, Tolliver said. Once he had acquired the cash, the offender declared “Don’t come around here” before fleeing in an unknown direction. The complainant, who did not seek medical attention for a minor hand cut, described the thief as black, in his 40s and 6 foot; having a medium complexion and a beard; and wearing a black baseball cap and dark clothes. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-685-1635, text PPDTIP (773847) or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

Stripped of dignity Police arrested a patron at a Pennsport gentlemen’s club Saturday morning for her alleged aggression against an employee. A dancer at Club Risqué, 1700 S. Columbus Blvd., told authorities that at 2 a.m., she attempted to collect tips and capture the attention of a female visitor to the establishment, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The worker claims the woman ignored her, leading her to say she was trying only to be polite and that her fellow female did not need to act rudely. The customer reportedly jumped up, began to yell at the employee and threw her drink and cup at her, with the holder striking her in the mouth, leading to two broken teeth. Authorities found the supposed attacker in a limousine right outside the location and arrested her, Tolliver said. They charged 47-year-old Elizabeth Carlile of Woodbridge, Va., with aggravated and simple assault, possession of an instrument of crime and recklessly endangering another person. Having posted her $5,000 bail, she awaits a Nov. 19 preliminary hearing.

Foot chase An attack victim helped authorities to arrest his alleged offender Saturday afternoon in Point Breeze. While standing at the intersection of Dickinson and South Colorado streets at 4 p.m., the complainant suffered an upper right shoulder stab wound from the rear, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. Not demanding anything, the reported aggressor ran away, with the hurt individual chasing him to the

Authorities soon after observed the alleged knife wielder descending steps from the same residence and arrested 52-yearold Tyrone Bethel after a positive identification by the victim, who received transport to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Tolliver said. Police charged Bethel, who awaits a Nov. 19 preliminary hearing, with possession of an instrument of crime, making terroristic threats, simple and aggravated assault and recklessly endangering another person.

Bus stop bravado A would-be female bus passenger became prey for a thief Saturday morning in Point Breeze. While waiting for her ride on the 1300 block of South 20th Street at 5:35 a.m., the complainant had an unknown male approach her and pretend to wait for the same vehicle, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. She stated he engaged her in a short conversation, then displayed a handgun, barking “Don’t move; don’t make a sound.” Taking her phone and bags, he instructed her to walk away then ran in an unknown direction, Tolliver said. The victim described the weapon-wielding stranger as black, 6 foot and in his late

Suspicious finds Having released photos of 20-year-old Keenan Gentry of the 1800 block of South Bancroft Street and 19-year-old Nicholas Pompeii, of the 1900 block of South 17th Street Tuesday, authorities used anonymous tips that day to capture the latter and supposed Sophorn Keenan Gentry accomplice Ouch, of the 1600 block of South Bancroft Street, for their possible roles in two Queen Village robberies and a Dickinson Square West heist. Their supposed wrongdoing began Oct. 17 with a gunpoint holdNicholas up of a man on the 700 Pompeii block of South Fourth Street, police said. That score yielded $15 cash, credit cards and an iPhone before they reportedly fled in a green or gray Toyota Camry. The second incident Sophorn Ouch transpired Oct. 19 on the 700 block of East Passyunk Avenue, with the two supposedly using the same weapon to intimidate a woman into giving them her cell phone and purse, the latter item discarded after they rummaged through it, according to surveillance video. The final act happened Oct. 22 on the 1300 block of South Fifth Street, with the alleged taking of a cell phone, debit cards and keys from a female, who like the woman in the second matter, said they fled in the same vehicle. Surveillance video later caught a woman making unauthorized transactions with the cards, with placement of the items in the same described vehicle. While looking for Gentry, whom they have described as 5-foot-10 and 140 pounds, they arrested Ouch outside her residence after deeming her the female from the video.

A speeding driver fled his vehicle to attack a pedestrian Saturday morning in Newbold. At 12:50 a.m., the male complainant and a friend were walking along the 1500 block of Mifflin Street when they noticed a gray Jeep Cherokee zooming eastbound in their vicinity, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The acquaintance yelled for the male motorist to slow down, with the scolded individual leaving his ride on the eastbound side of 15th Street to ask the two “Do you have something you want to get off your chest?” before punching the complainant in the right side of his jaw. The force sent the victim to the ground, with his head striking the metal bulkhead that covered the basement stairs to Ultimo Coffee, 1900 S. 15th St., Tolliver said. The automobile operator then fled eastbound on Mifflin Street. The complainant walked to Methodist Hospital and received four staples to close his head laceration. He described the aggressor as black, 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-7 and in his mid- to late-20s; having a thin build; and wearing a black hoodie with white lettering and blue jeans.

A N.I.C.E. gesture Residents held a block party to generate buzz about a Point Breeze’s school needs. ■ By Bill Chenevert Review Contributor

M

ore than 125 neighbors poured out of their houses for DJ-fueled block party energy Saturday on the 1500 block of Wharton Street. Face painting, hula hoopers and various games kept children occupied, with food and coffee grazed by a mix of residents and parents of George W. Childs School, 1599 Wharton St., all intending to engage the environs to support the Point Breeze elementary site. A handful of civic organizations were on hand to collect signatures and e-mail addresses, encourage sign-ups and offer information on their efforts. The party also featured a visit from one of the location’s most famous alumni, 2nd District Councilman Kenyatta Johnson. N.I.C.E. (Neighbors Investing in Childs Elementary) celebrated the 2013 school year with the event and sought to spread name recognition for the aforementioned entities. The supportive community-based organization consists of concerned parents and community members whose main objective is to lift up the school in its time of duress and protect students and teachers in the learning process. Saturday’s occasion looked to introduce N.I.C.E., which has been an official organization with a name for a little more than a year, to the neighborhood and to foster the notion that the success of the school is inherent to a community that values its children and their education. Megan Rosenbach has been championing support of Childs, and her work, in conjunction with her worship site, Circle of Hope, 1125 S. Broad St., has been primarily fund-raising efforts and the dissemination of any funds raised to the building’s most important needs. That wasn’t what she and N.I.C.E. were going for Saturday, though. “This wasn’t for money at all,” Rosenbach, a former Teach for America alum who spent two years at North Philly’s Frederick Douglass School teaching seventh and eighth grade social studies and literacy, said. “We are fund-raisers; that’s kind of the biggest thing we do,” the resident of the 1500 block of South 15th Street confessed. “But this was just more of a communitybuilder. There’s so much division in this neighborhood now, and N.I.C.E. is really well-positioned to help unify people around a common goal of supporting the

school.” Childs has seen many big changes over the past few years. From its former home at 1541 S. 17th St. being determined unfit for more terms in 2010, to merging with Barratt Middle School that same year, and to dealing with a recent spate of school closings upping its enrollment by almost 200, the site is racing to catch up and meet the needs of every student. Childs’ Principal Dr. Eileen Coutts is doing her best to ensure the success and safety of each enrollee, but her charge is daunting. “We absorbed about 150 students from the closed Smith [Academics Plus] School. We are now a school with more than 700 students and 60 Head Start students,” she explained. “The biggest issue is that we have no assistant principal or dean to deal with discipline,” she said. “Consequently, I deal with everything. As you can imagine, no one can do a job well when one is spread so thin. Luckily, the classes are not overcrowded and are a decent size in every grade except third and seventh. Our teachers are still able to teach but certainly do not feel sup-

pported since I am only one person.” No one would doubt the pressure of such a position, and she’s defined at least one iimmediate goal that would alleviate some oof the building’s needs. “I really need an assistant principal,” she ssaid. Rosenbach and N.I.C.E. are trying to support Coutts, teachers, students and parents to relieve some of the stress in the district. Kim Smith’s been a Childs supporter for years, with two children, one a Philadelphia High School for Girls learner, and another a Bloomsburg University senior studying business administration, having emerged from the district unscathed and successful. She sees a need for the neighborhood and parents to support Childs and avoid regarding it as inferior to private and charter schools. “We need to make sure that the funds are available to provide the resources. One of my major goals is to see the morale back up; a lot of the parents and teachers and staff don’t have the morale and are losing their faith in public schools,” she urged. JOHNSON WAS QUICK to address how he hopes to make change for the school and lighten the load of Dr. Coutts and her teachers. He’s doing what he can to find the resources that can help students achieve as much as they can. “I’m in the process of putting together a meeting with the school district to begin

looking at the level of resources necessary,” he said. “The district has a responsibility to provide resources to the school, specifically having to do with Smith School closing down, and part of what I’ll be questioning and advocating for is the providing of those resources and support systems.” However, it’s not just up to him, and it’s not out of the hands of neighbors, even neighbors who don’t have children in the school but want to make sure their community’s youths aren’t getting the short end of the stick. “But I think it’s also just as important that collaborations and organizations such as N.I.C.E., F.A.S.T. (Families and Schools Together), and CityYear, those civic organizations are vital to providing resources,” Johnson said. “The people really came out and participated, neighbors and parents had a chance to see something special taking place — so that’s what inspired me.” N.I.C.E. intends to use collected funds in the most democratic way possible. “In our fundraising efforts we want to make sure we’re spending the money in a way that the community wants most,” the 2013 South Philly Review Difference Maker said, pledging transparency in the organization’s use of what could be seen as controversial money. “We’re excited that we can give OCF [Realty, 2054 South St.] the opportunity to use their money to build the community in meaningful ways.” The entity was present Saturday, as were local personalities, representatives from civic bodies and other initiatives, including the Newbold Neighbors Association; the Childs-situated Dream Academy for children who have a history of incarceration in their family or who are struggling academically; the South Philly Food Coop; the Garces Foundation; the Health Promotion Council; Circle of Hope; the Young Chances Foundation; and Unity in the Community. “I think [Dr. Coutts] needs more support,” Smith said. “I think she’s a little overwhelmed, and they’ve taken away a lot of resources, and I don’t think the district is supporting us. So we have 30 to 35 students in one classroom, and the support’s not there to cover it. They need to give her some more support, and I think that’s what me and Megan and N.I.C.E. are trying to do — support her and get her to those goals.” SPR

ple of all ages. “The way the figures on the wall appear, people can project themselves in the figures,” Stoops said. Only three years after Haring’s collaborative work in South Philly, he died from an AIDS-related illness at age 31. As Jane Golden, Mural Arts’ executive director, noted at the restoration celebration this weekend, Haring was a beloved artist who was influential to many. He believed deeply in the public process, and that the public has the right to art. Haring, who grew up in Kutztown, also was a devoted philanthropist, often aiding underprivileged youth. “He created nonstop in his lifetime, he had a style that was distinct and fearless,” Golden said. “He is one of those special artists who expanded the definition of what artists do.” Although the Mural Arts Program has restored many murals around the city, this one was especially exciting for Golden, as she met Haring in ’87 when he was painting it. She said he gave her, and the AntiGraffiti Network at the time, confidence in their mission, and was “so supportive.” “He was like, ‘Don’t listen to what anyone says, just keep working, do what you believe in,’” Golden said. “All these years later, in all my life since then, it has stayed with me.” She added that Haring’s words helped guide and transform the direction of the Mural Arts Program in Philadelphia, the largest public art initiative in the United States, which does about 30 to 40 preservation restorations per year. In 2000, Golden said she and her colleagues noticed the Haring mural deteriorating and knew something needed to be done. “We fixed it up, but we didn’t do a good job,” she said, noting that the Mural Arts Program was still learning the ropes of the process. It wasn’t until last summer when Lucas Bryant, a resident at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, and his wife Erica bought the home that major moves were made. To the Bryants’ surprise, a simple e-mail to the Keith Haring Foundation, which Haring started in 1989, went a lot longer of a way than the couple from Minnesota ever could have imagined, they said. Describing the structural damage of the wall the mural was painted on, Lucas Bryant said, “We wanted to preserve this art for the community.” THE KEITH HARING Foundation, which gives grants to nonprofit charitable and education-oriented organizations, gave $30,000 to Mural Arts to spearhead the restoration. This grant afforded them the opportunity to hire Kim Alsbrooks and a crew of artists to

restore the creation with the most durable paints available. “This mural is not going anywhere for a while,” Alsbrooks said, adding that the work will be sealed with a UV-protection varnish soon. The Haring Foundation funding also allowed Mural Arts to hire a landscape architect, South Philly resident Michael LoFurno, and partner with Neighborhood Gardens Trust to creatively revamp the garden — with benches, a modern design and a new fence — in front of the mural. “Now visitors can get up close and per-

The celebration drew not only South Philly neighbors, but also members of CityKids, who put on a performance while event attendees munched on free food from local lunch trucks. “I really appreciate Haring’s artwork, I’m wearing one of his designs on my shirt right now,” 21-year-old Steven Prescod, a five-year member of CityKids who shocked the crowd with his singing and dancing, said. “He’s a really inspiring artist, and it’s amazing to be a part of some“The Others...and The Others” lm screening and genealogy discussion 6:15 p.m. Nov. 13. 2437 S.

thing like this.” The Haring family also was in attendance to celebrate and honor their treasured Keith. “It’s hard to believe that the Keith Haring you’re all talking about is the young man who we had to discipline,” Al Haring, Keith’s father, joked. Jenyse Carpenter, who lives between Ellsworth and Federal on 22nd Street, didn’t hesitate to stop by. And it wasn’t just because of the smell of homemade, cheesy pizza and abnormally warm November weather. She’s appreciated Haring’s work since she was in high school, Carpenter said, when she first learned of him. “It’s nice to celebrate his work that’s still here, it’s good for the youth and for all the neighbors,” she said. “It also gives us a sense of community, and it’s bringing us all together, which is pretty awesome. Because really, how often do events like this happen in the community?” Second District Councilman Kenyatta Johnson, who grew up in Point Breeze, described the mural as a transformative contribution to the neighborhood, “It would be the murals that would inspire me and give me a sense of hope that there was something more than the negativity that I would see in my neighborhood,” he said. “This is one of those murals.” SPR

Gina Rucci of Popi’s and Lou Galdo of Galdo’s, along with committee members would like to inform you of our progress thus far. The date for the Fundraiser will be Friday, January 31st, at Galdo’s Catering and Entertainment located at 20th & Moyamensing Ave. Tickets are on sale now for $35.00 This event will be hosted, staffed and catered by Popi’s and Galdo’s at no cost to the committee.

Our guest singers will include Demi Ferrarra and Felicia Punzo. They too are donating their services at no cost. As we all know, this fire was a devastating event that happened right here in our neighborhood. And as we realize that this most unfortunate event happens more often than not in many different parts of our city, and other cities in our country, it literally happened in our backyard which really hits home. On that note, this is not just a fundraiser. This is a gathering of neighbors from all over the city to show moral support and community spirit, prayers and love. We want to shine a light of some happiness in this gathering of people, our neighborhood and the neighborhoods around us, sharing stories, eating, having a cocktail, and listening to some great singers and music. We realize no amount of money could ever replace the most precious items we hold near and dear to our hearts. Everything from our cherished pictures to our favorite pj’s. We hope this event will show our friends of Chaucer st. that we are here for them. Please come out and support this great event! Also, if there is anyone else interested in joining the fundraising committee, or is willing to sell tickets and/or possibly collect items to raffle off or even just make a monetary donation, please attend our next meeting at Popi’s on Thursday November 7 at 7:30 pm.

Guys on film A Marconi native helped to pen a book on a lauded movie studio’s early years. ■ By Joseph Myers

M

Review Managing Editor

ichael Christaldi loves landing opportunities to advance the future of cinema but not at the expense of its voluminous past. Accustomed to contributing as an actor, the 48-year-old figure has become a scribe, too, teaming with two colleagues to devise “Early Paramount Studios,” a well-received book documenting its titular California entity’s first three decades. “I had been hoping that my mom would buy a copy,” the native of the 2900 block of South Sydenham Street and South Jersey inhabitant said of initial expectations for the 127-page homage. “That’s not been the case, as people are drawn to nostalgia and are enjoying its contents.” The Marconi product united with historians E.J. Stephens and Marc Wanamaker to issue the work through Arcadia Publishing in July. They had conceived it in March 2012, garnering a contract one month later, with Stephens and Christaldi handling the researching and writing and Wanamaker compiling the accompanying images. Selling out on Amazon.com within three weeks, their brainchild has entered its third printing, leading the overseers to ponder a Hollywood staple, a sequel. “Putting it together gave me deeper appreciation for the generators of such a powerful legacy,”

S t a f f p h o t o s b y K at h r y n P o o l e


LIFESTYLES Christaldi, who participated in a 650-copy August signing at Paramount’s Hollywood headquarters, said of addressing their efforts from 1912 through ’39. “I’m thrilled others are likewise enthused.” With such cherished movies as “The Godfather,” “Sunset Boulevard” and “Titanic” to its name, the company has captivated legions of patrons, with Christaldi an immense admirer of its annals. In documenting its initial movers and shakers, he came to revere founder Adolph Zukor so much, he is penning a piece on him for the magazine Classic Images. “He’s a key personality and an often overlooked one,” Christaldi said of the Hungarian pioneer, who established Famous Players Film Co., Paramount’s original appellation, in ’12. “He and his peers are responsible for so many of the memories that people make in theaters.” With aims to account for four more decades in the next examination, the fervent fan derives joy from being a chronicler of his screen predecessors’ feats, knowing he owes his passion for performing primarily to their enthusiasm for elevating entertainment’s energy and scope. Though he has yet to work on a Paramount project, he has not stopped envisioning the day he gains his chance.

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

“Every time I’m there, I think I should just handcuff myself to the place,” Christaldi said. “It’s that renowned, inspirational and timeless.” THE GARDEN STATE resident commenced his infatuation with show business as a boy, aspiring to sample the scenery and pageantry of New York City. Receiving his education at F. Amedee Bregy, 1700 Bigler St., and St. Richard School, now St. Pio Regional Catholic School, 1826 Pollock St., before his family’s move to Bellmawr, N.J., Christaldi gradually went from obsessed observer to budding performer, with nods in Wildwood-based church performances helping to define him as a reliable presence. “I was a real stickler for details,” he said of his boyhood roles. “I hadn’t known but that was my initiation into method acting. No matter what I did, though, I wanted to feel I was giving my all.” Following graduation from South Jersey’s Triton Regional High School, Christaldi, having earned kudos from peers and overseers, enrolled in classes at the Walnut Street Theatre. The Old City location did not prove a perfect match for the thespian, who decided to let go of his dream upon marrying, settling into other

professions, including a stint as a showroom manager for Caesars Atlantic City. “It’s strange, though, how we come back to what had driven us before,” Christaldi, whose marriage produced daughter Angela, an aspiring actress matriculating at Saint Joseph’s University, said. “I feel what you want to pursue is born in you, so I’m going after what was meant for me.” Traveling to California two decades ago, he encountered Paramount and knew it would somehow factor into his maturation. Another visit to the Golden State years later intensified his tutelage, as interactions with comedians Tom Dreesen and Johnny Dark, for whom he has written material, and actor Steve Landesberg led him to receive instruction at New York City’s Herbert Berghof Studio. Relishing his opportunities, he reignited his ability to convey diverse emotions to educate, entertain and move viewers. “I enjoy being able to tackle different sorts of works, and whether comedic or dramatic, I’m really confident in doing a great job,” Christaldi said. The teeming-with-tenacity individual has made many film, television, theater and commercial appearances, including turns for “The Late Show with David Letterman,” the Discovery Channel-situat-

ed “Mobster Confessions,” “The Stepford Wives” and “The Sopranos,” with voiceover work also bulking up his resumé. Having forged friendships with luminaries such as fellow South Philly native son Frankie Avalon, Clint Eastwood, Jerry Lewis, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci, he cherishes the camaraderie that believing in his talent has spawned. “I feel very fortunate to have been among so many gifted people because they’re role models on so many levels, including the realization you got to believe in yourself all the time, no matter the circumstances,” Christaldi said. The ever-confident actor will head to Los Angeles this week to prepare for his role with peer Murray Langston, The Unknown Comic, in “Seventh Story Man,” a play addressing the need to replace hopeless feelings with vivid hopes for change. The work will also take him to Hawaii, but no matter the destination, Christaldi will not desert his destiny. “Showbiz is my life,” he said. “I just have to continue to be faithful to it.” SPR Visit arcadiapublishing.com.

How to buy a pillow (This is the first of a series of self-help columns that are guaranteed to help you become wealthy and live forever).

Y

organic, not genetically altered foam in my pillow. A pillow case is usually 200- or 300-thread count. I returned my last pillow because I counted only 189 threads. I prefer Egyptian cotton, but I am in the process of re-thinking my position. As you know there is a new government in Egypt, marking the second change in a year. The democratically-elected government was ousted after a year in a most undemocratic coup, probably because the leaders turned out not to be very democratic. You are probably wondering why, in the middle of giving you instructions on shopping for a pillow, I am digressing into a commentary on Egyptian politics (so was I). The thing is that you need a stable government to make a stable pillow. My simple motto is peaceful people make a peaceful pillow and a peaceful pillow makes for a peaceful night’s rest. I’m thinking of marketing that slogan to Sleepy’s the mattress giant. Speaking of mattresses, a lot of effort has been put into the idea that you need a sleep number bed, especially if you’re sleeping with someone (refer to instructions above for how to tell if you are sleeping with someone). With a sleep-numbering system, you can supposedly satisfy different tastes in the firmness of the mattress. You could be a 17 while your sleeping partner might be a 12. Here again I have a problem. First off, if your sleeping partner isn’t compatible with your sleep numbers, maybe you ought to think about changing partners (and saving money by buying a simpler mattress). And another thing, being able to adjust the sleep numbers, it seems to me, encourages promiscuity. Before you know it everyone will be sleeping around because they can adjust the firmness of the mattress to suit their needs. I am certain [former Sen.] Rick Santorum will come out any day against sleep-number beds, unless they are a big contributor to his political campaign. Sleep-number beds might encourage homosexuality because you know how gay men love to change partners. Why should we make it easier for them to sin? Another thing about sleep-number mattresses — they pose another decision that I will be forced to make. I really don’t like making decisions. I’m upset that my sport socks no longer fit on either foot. I slept on a sleep-number bed one time in a hotel and spent the entire evening constantly trying out the different sleep numbers. My wife, in her sexy negligee, spent the entire night watching me try to make up my mind. I spent a sleepless night for all the wrong reasons. SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/opinion/ cardella.

Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) needs the aid of Thor (Chris Hemsworth) to counter the effects of a negative force.

Thor returns ■ By R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer

A

seemingly humdrum chapter of the ever-growing “Avengers” saga, “Thor: The Dark World” also turns out to be an amalgam of oodles of other fantasy pictures, most notably “The Lord of the Rings,” which it mirrors from its first, exposition-heavy flashback. It also calls to mind prior films from the Marvel brand, like “The Avengers” itself, which similarly involved an ominous portal looming over an earthly city. But genre cinema has become so vastly auto-cannibalistic that pointing out narrative links and influences is practically futile. If one has any hope for enjoyment, it’s best to be in the moment with the specimen at hand, and see how well it engrosses with the cards on the table, even if they’re swiped from someone else’s deck. With this in mind, one can see the sequel to 2011’s “Thor” as quite an achievement. It’s immersive, emotional, flawlessly visualized and effective in its humor, which continues to stem from the fish-out-of-water dichotomy between Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and the godlike residents of Asgard, and love interest Jane (Natalie Portman) and her fellow earthlings. The threat this time is a band of ancient elves, who want to use some liquid life force to cover worlds in darkness amid planetary alignment. But, again, none of those derivative details matter much. “Thor: The Dark World” triumphs in its monumental special effects, which also recall “The Lord of the Rings” in the sense that they’re rich and astonishingly state of the art (a siege on Asgard’s headquarters occasionally evokes the Siege of Gondor in “Return of the King”).

It furthermore gets surprising depth from the bond between Thor and his villainous brother, Loki, played for the third time by Tom Hiddleston, who definitively proves that his is the best performance in Marvel’s entire Hollywood universe. The notion of merging worlds, and presenting a permeable barrier between them, is one this film uses consistently. It proves as central to the plot as it does reflective of the movie, which pulls viewers into its world with much greater skill than most will expect.

Thor: The Dark World PG-13 Two-and-a-half reels out of four Opens tomorrow at area theaters

Recommended Rental Frances Ha R Available Tuesday

One of the year’s most celebrated films, Noah Baumbach’s “Frances Ha,” which stars the director’s real-life squeeze and indie princess, Greta Gerwig, at last gives “Girls”style millennial angst a classy, cinephiliac twist. Laced with touches of the French New Wave, the black-and-white New York story follows a flawed, yet irrepressible, dancer (Gerwig), whose aimlessness proves both irksome and endearing.

ou would think that buying a pillow is simple. Then again you probably thought, at one time, you could open a 12-ounce plastic bottle of water without spilling a drop. You have learned better. Choosing the correct pillow is as important to your health as eating spinach, something I bet your mother never told you. The first thing you have to know when pillow shopping is whether you sleep alone or not. You would be surprised to know that after the age of 65 (and sometimes even much earlier), people don’t always know if someone else is sleeping with them. As you get older, sleeping with someone means actually just sleeping with someone. That lump you thought was an old mattress that had lost its shape may actually be your husband of 35 years. This is true especially if the “lump” is wearing plaid pajamas with at least three buttons missing. Folks who sleep in king-size beds, especially, have trouble figuring out if there is somebody on the other end. At least in a regular-size bed, if your body bumps into another during the night, chances are that you have a partner whom you have ignored for a long period of time. If you are sleeping with someone, shopping for a pillow can get complicated. All pillows are not alike. Note the instructions on the packaging. If you sleep on your side, you need a firm pillow. If you sleep on your stomach, a soft pillow is indicated. For folks who sleep on their back, you need a pillow that is somewhere in the middle. If you toss and turn all night, you likely need all three pillows, which you must keep changing as you change positions. Sometimes changing pillows during the night can interfere. If your spouse sleeps in a different position than you, you run the risk of forever mixing them up, creating yet another area of argument like whether the thermostat is too high or the eggs should be scrambled or sunny side up. Pillows may be filled with down or foam. As a lover of geese, I not only refuse to eat foie gras, but I also won’t use a pillow filled with down. And I certainly will never eat foie gras in bed propped up on a down pillow. I tend to shop for all-natural,

Starting the ConverSation Many DeCiSionS about elDer Care begin at the holiDayS (Family Features) Holidays are a time for families to gather together for celebrating, reminiscing and sharing the joys of the season. It’s also a time when out-of-town family members may suddenly be confronted with the declining health of a loved one. Those taking care of aging family members are often unable to fully convey to those living far away the true needs of an elderly parent. So, these times of gathering together are a good time to start the conversation of how to handle long-term health care needs.

Should care outside the home become necessary, several types of housing come with support services for people who cannot fully take care of themselves due to aging and/or disability.

Who pays for care? Long-term care is more expensive than most people realize. Many people believe wrongly the Medicare, Medicaid, medical insurance or disability insurance they currently have will pay for all or much of their long-term care. In general, health insurance covers only very limited and specific types of long-term care. For more information about additional Medicare, Medicaid and paying privately for long-term care, visit www.longtermcare.gov.

Gather Together The first step should be gathering all involved family members together, including the person needing care. It’s important to take the time, while you have it, to develop a strategy for how things should be handled when a loved one eventually needs care. Create a checklist of topics to discuss by visiting www.longtermcare. gov. Click on the “LTC Pathfinder” link, answer simple questions and this valuable tool will generate a list of topics to consider when planning for care. It is also a great resource for finding national and local resources.

Where can you receive care? Most people prefer to stay in their home or apartment for as long as possible. If this is your plan, it is important to step back and consider if modifications would allow you to remain at home longer.

What resources are available? The most common source of long-term care help is often unpaid family members. Other options include in-home care providers and elder daycare centers. Find out about home delivered meals and other services offered in your community. It’s also important to consult an attorney to make sure your loved one has appointed one or more individuals to make health care and financial decisions for them. Planning for the care that a loved one may need one day is an important gift family members can give each other during the holiday season. Photo courtesy of Getty Images

Dr. John J. Wasniewski Jr. D.O. Dr. John J. Wasniewski Jr., DO, age 72, of West Chester, PA, died peacefully at his home on October 22, 2013. The son of Sophie and John Wasniewski Sr., he was born and raised in Riverside, NJ. John is survived by his loving wife of 37 years, Carla Hagerty Wasniewski, his children, Kristin Mumford and Dr. John Wasniewski III, his sister Henia Centrella, and his three grandchildren, Meghan, Luke, and John. John was an altruistic physician who had a lifelong passion for medicine. He received his Doctorate of Pharmacy from PCP&S in 1966 and his Doctorate of Osteopathic Medicine from PCOM in 1970. He was a general practice physician who served South Philadelphia for 43 years, and he continued to work until recently when he was no longer able. He was a healer and a humble servant of the Lord. John was an avid fisherman who enjoyed charters with his son, nephew and close friends. He loved gardening, Sudoku puzzles, and World War II history. He was deeply religious and was an active member in his parish. Every year he always provided his family with a memorable vacation, his last being to Disney World with all of his grandchildren in February. John will always be remembered as a kind and generous person to those whom he knew.

Memorial Mass in Honor of the Doctor is November 12, 2013, Tuesday evening at 7:00 p.m. St. Rita’s Church, Broad & Federal

Local seniors maintain their independence, remain physically active and socially engaged with Mercy LIFE’s all-inclusive offerings. As everyday tasks and activities become more difficult, aging seniors may feel their days of living in their own homes are numbered. But for South Philadelphia seniors, there is a new option that enables seniors to maintain their independence, while offering personalized assistance – Mercy LIFE. Mercy LIFE assists seniors by offering a program where seniors can access all of their health, wellness, social and spiritual needs in one place. Participants have their medical needs met with on-site physicians, nurses and specialists. While receiving medical care on-site, seniors can also participate in a host of social activities, classes and workshops designed to keep them active, engaged and physically fit.

Maintaining body, mind and spirit Each month, Mercy LIFE’s exercise classes, taught by trained physical therapists, help seniors work out a variety of motor skills that can deteriorate from restricted or limited movement. Yoga, for example, relieves stress and anxiety, improves balance and increases flexibility. Skilled recreation therapists ensure participants exercise cognitive and mobility skills while encouraging social interaction with activities like shuffleboard, bowling, tetherball, golf and even hula hoop tournaments. Activities like bingo, poker, Pokeno and word puzzles keep critical thinking skills sharp. Mercy LIFE also offers off-site field trips and for seniors who want to celebrate their faith, but may not be able to make it to church, Mercy LIFE offers spiritual services.

Many options, one Mercy LIFE program The Mercy LIFE program caters to seniors who attend one of three adult day centers in North and South Philadelphia at their leisure, or as needed for medical services. Whether visiting one day per week or five days per week, seniors have access to a variety of activities each day, with the flexibility to do as they please.

Keeping Fit and Having Fun as We Age (Family Features) Regular physical activity at any age can help you live longer, feel better and reduce health problems. But far too many people, including baby boomers, don’t get the exercise they need. According to the 2012 Participation Report from the Physical Activity Council (PAC), 35 percent of Americans over the age of 55 are physically inactive. Since regular exercise helps control blood pressure, body weight, cholesterol and so much more, boomers need to find ways to get their bodies moving so they can live longer, healthier lives. “Though any amount of exercise is beneficial, ultimately adults should work up to getting at least 30 minutes most days of the week, as long as they feel comfortable and pain-free,” said world-renowned nutritionist Joy Bauer. “From taking a Zumba class to walking and stretching, getting regular physical activity helps the joints stay loose, maintains muscle mass, and gets the blood flowing – all of which make everyday tasks easier.” The American Council on Exercise recommends older Americans choose exercise programs that include cardiovascular, muscle conditioning, and flexibility

exercises. Low-impact, non-jarring exercises such as walking and swimming are good options. A key to sticking with a fitness program is making sure it’s enjoyable. A fun new program for older adults is Zumba Gold, a low-impact dancebased workout designed specifically for boomers and seniors. Workout routines combine salsa, merengue, flamenco and cumbia moves with fun music. For those that would prefer to work out in the comfort of their own home, there is also a Zumba Gold “Live it Up” DVD collection that offers 3 discs with workouts, as well as advice from experts in the fields of nutrition, brain health, enhancing your well-being and more. The program was created by 71-year-old Joy Prouty, a veteran in the fitness industry and a former Rockette. “From cardio to toning, this collection brings together some of Zumba’s most popular offerings in a format enabling older adults to rediscover the energy of their youth,” said Prouty. To learn more about Zumba Gold, purchase the Zumba Gold “Live it Up” DVDs and find a class near you, visit www.zumbagold.com.

Workout Safety Tips Whenever beginning a new fitness activity or program, make sure you do it safely. • • •

Wear comfortable shoes that fit well. Stay hydrated with plenty of fluids. Listen to your body. If it hurts or it feels like too much, stop.

You also need to be aware of danger signs while exercising. Stop the activity and call your doctor or 911 if you experience pain or pressure in your chest, arms, neck or jaw; feel lightheaded, nauseated or weak; become short of breath; develop pain in your legs, calves or back; or feel like your heart is beating too fast or skipping beats. “It’s important to see your doctor before beginning any workout routine to receive a thorough cardiovascular evaluation,” said Bauer. “Once you’ve been cleared by your doctor, I recommend starting out slowly.”

Be a V.I.P. If you have both Medicare & Medicaid, join the plan that treats you like a V.I.P.

1-877-686-1762 (TTY: 1-866-428-7583) 7 days a week, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (Oct. 1-Feb. 14); Mon.- Fri., 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (Feb. 15-Sept. 30)

This plan is available to anyone who has both Medical Assistance from the State and Medicare. Y0093_PRA_963_Accepted_10232013

Pick an Activity that You Will Enjoy The best way to find a regimen that will stick is to choose something that you enjoy. You’ll be more likely to stick with it and reap all the benefits the physical activity has to offer. Bauer adds that a program like Zumba Gold is great because, if you enjoy dancing, it won’t feel like exercise and it can also be a social outlet: “Combining physical activity with social time is a total win-win.”

hen one craves comfort food on a chilly night like those from the earlier part of this week, a chicken dish tends to be a satisfactory solution. Alice DeVos, of the 2100 block of South Hancock Street, enjoys buttering things up a little more by making her Creamed Chicken and Biscuits recipe. The idea of grabbing one of those golden brown biscuits that top off the dish may just heat up the night. Alice suggests accompanying the main course with a side salad. SPR

DIRECTIONS:

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 of a large onion, chopped 1 -1/2 teaspoons of butter 4 cups of cooked chicken, chopped 1 10-1/2-ounce can of cream of chicken soup 1 cup of shredded mild cheddar cheese, divided 6 thawed frozen biscuits 1 cup of sour cream 1/2 cup of milk 1/2 cup of pimiento, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottom and sides of an 11-by-7-inch baking dish. Heat butter in a small, nonstick skillet oven medium-high until melted. Stir in onion and sauté until tender. Combine the onion, chicken, soup, sour cream, milk and pimiento in a medium bowl, and mix well. Spoon the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Bake for 15 minutes, and remove from oven. Sprinkle the baked layer with 3/4 cup of the cheddar cheese. Arrange the biscuits in a single layer

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

C

hanges in weather often affect my appetite. It was quite warm last Saturday when suddenly, overnight, the temperature dropped and I immediately wanted warm, comforting food. While watching the Eagles game on Sunday, I tweeted “I am craving meatballs and gravy.” Chef Kevin Sbraga, whose restaurant is one of my favorites in the city, tweeted a photo of a pot simmering on his stove at his home: “No meatballs but gravy with sweet sausage, lamb neck and pepperoni.” Since it was too late for me to buy the beef, pork and veal necessary to make them at home, I wracked my brain to discover the next best thing. Villa Di Roma immediately came to mind. I have not been there in many years. It was one of the first restaurants I reviewed when I became the restaurant critic for the paper. I clearly recall a cold December evening two weeks before Christmas when I first experienced the warm family atmosphere that is a hallmark of Villa Di Roma. Snow was falling on the Christmas trees that were for sale in the Italian Market. Edward and I made it to the restaurant just in time to watch the Eagles big win. The place was packed, and it seemed half the populations of Washington Township, N.J., and South Philly were tucking into plates of pasta, or enjoying a beer or glass of wine at the bar while waiting for their table. Villa Di Roma has been a Ninth-Street staple for almost 50 years. There are two well-lit dining rooms separated by the bar with a photo of Rocky running through Coffee/Café/Sweets Caffe Chicco: 2532 S. Broad St., 215-334-3100, $

the Italian Market. Suffice to say, everyone was in a dandy mood. What I like about the cash-only establishment is the no frills, simple and hearty Italian-American fare. No fuss, no muss. There are moderately priced wines by the glass and bottle. Edward and I decided on a Montepulciano ($7 a glass, $28 by the bottle), which we have enjoyed on numerous occasions at home. Edward and I nibbled on a loaf of fresh Italian bread with a good crust as we discussed the menu. From the antipasti, we ordered shrimp scampi ($9.95) and mussels in red sauce ($10.95). Six medium-size shrimp arrived in a round, metal dish nestled in a sauce of melted butter and lemon juice. Although perfectly cooked, they imparted a bit of a tinny flavor. I would have liked more garlic in the sauce, but we enjoyed it nevertheless as we dipped bread into it. The mussels were clean and totally free of sand and grit. I found the red sauce a bit thin and oily, but the flavor was OK. I would have preferred more garlic and some chopped parsley here, but every chef has his or her recipe for this classic. Most of the mussels were plump and not a bit overcooked. My meatball craving was satisfied when I dove into ravioli with meatballs ($16.95). The gravy was gosh darn delicious. It was rich and satisfying and obviously simmered at Villa Di Roma. The pockets were filled with ricotta and flecks of chopped parsley. I doubt they were homemade, but I know the meatballs were. I received two of these well-seasoned beauties, a little smaller than a baseball. They imparted an Restaurant Review:

almost pâté-like texture inside that I particularly liked. Half my dinner was packed to go for lunch the next day. Edward’s sausage cacciatore ($15.95) was a simple straight forward homestyle dish which he relished. One can order it served on pasta, but he prefers it right on the plate. Sweet Italian sausages were sautéed with peppers and onions, napped in the aforementioned homemade gravy. He ate every bit of his dinner. Service was friendly and attentive. Several of the waitresses doted on a little girl who, with her parents, are regulars. = Very Good

Chef Robert Legget

Guerrilla Ultima Food Truck Owner: Robert Legget Opened November 2012 robert@theguerillatruck.com

Legget, the day marks a much more special occasion: The oneyear anniversary of his Guerrilla Ultima Food Truck. The 1995 graduate of Rhode Island’s Johnson & Wales University is known for his cooked fresh specialities like the original pastrami burger, as well as smoked pork and bacon. “I would say it’s a different kind of challenge, a very unique challenge,” the 40-year-old chef/ owner, who resides at the 1500 block of East Moyamensing Avenue with his wife of nine years, Mercedes, said. Unlike the upscale establishments he has worked at in South Beach, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, including an executive chef gig at Old City’s Cuba Libre, Legget’s more affordable traveling kitchen is condensed to a 2-foot workspace. Guerrilla Ultima currently makes weekly stops at various locations, including the Second Street Brew House, 1700 S. Second St., for Sunday brunch. He also is pulling

Staff Photos by Kathryn Poole

INGREDIENTS: 8 pounds of bone-in pork butt 2 cups of chopped tomatillos 1 cup of poblano pepper, diced 1 cup of long hots, chopped Juice from 3 limes 2 ounces of garlic 1 ounce of anchovy 1/4 cup of extra strong Dijon 1/4 cup of extra virgin oil 1 cup of apple cider vinegar Salt, to taste 1/2 ounce of cilantro 1 cup of half-and-half 8 ounces of lager beer of choice 8 ounces of extra sharp provolone

1 ounce of pickled chilies 2 ounces of heavy cream

DIRECTIONS: Hickory smoke or slow roast the pork with dry rub of choice at 225 degrees, until fork tender. Allow the pork to rest, then cut into cubes. To make the long hot mojo, combine the next 11 ingredients (the tomatillos to the cilantro) in a blender, and puree until smooth. Set aside. For the sharp whiz topping, combine the half-and-half with the beer, and bring to a boil.

Place the mixture in the blender on high. Slowly add the provolone, which will be grated. When smooth, add the cold heavy cream to stabilize the whiz, followed by the pickled chilies. Season with the salt. To assemble, crisp up the pork shoulder in a skillet. Then deglaze with the mojo. Place the pork on a well-toasted white roll and top with the sharp whiz. Note: On the truck, Legget uses his favorite vinegar-based slaw as a foundation. SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/ food-and-drink/features.

Joseph Myers talks

■ s o u t h p h i l l y r ev i ew.c o m

Valiant yet vanquished

An East Passyunk Crossing football team succumbed to a powerful foe in its first championship tussle in three decades. ■ By Joseph Myers Review Managing Editor

A

lready assured of their admirers’ allegiance by ending their secondary education site’s 30-year title game appearance drought, the football players from Ss. Neumann-Goretti High School, 1736 S. 10th St., looked to gain immortality Saturday afternoon against their longtime nemesis, the West Catholic Preparatory High School Burrs. Engineering a few ne plays yet committing costly gaffes, the East Passyunk Crossing athletes dropped the Catholic League AA championship contest 34-9 at the South Philadelphia super site, 10th and Bigler streets. “I know this is a rough moment, but you have no reason to put your heads down,” AA Coach of the Year CJ Szydlik said to his charges, who had advanced to the final by registering a 3-1 division mark, their lone loss coming Oct. 18 against the same foe. “I’m disappointed but I’m also truly proud of you.” Having advised them not to let any element of the contest spook them, the Northeast Philadelphia dweller had an immediate opportunity to gauge their nerves, as West’s Ahkil Crumpton returned the opening kick 95 yards for a touchdown. The third-highest scoring squad in their five-team division, the Saints proved eager to tally their first points against the now-six-time AA vic-

tors since 2010 and approached pay dirt on their first drive courtesy of a 40-yard hookup between junior quarterback Ray Lenhart and senior running back Sihmare Morgan. Having gone only 4-for-17 in Oct. 18’s 18-0 defeat to the Burrs, the signal caller seemed to have more zip on his ball and gave his club a 7-6 edge by finding senior wide receiver and Syracuse University recruit Jamal Custis for a sixyard score. “Going in, we had a great mindset about handling and beating them,” Morgan, who had accumulated just eight yards on nine carries in last month’s shutout, said. “That touchdown was key but we couldn’t sustain the focus, I think, because we let little things get to us. That’s definitely something to correct going forward.” The West Philadelphia occupant and his peers soon learned their far-more experienced opponents had no intentions of being trivia answers, as they turned to senior running back Greg White, who entered the clash with 978 yards. Having missed the teams’ initial duel, the speedster capitalized on two scoring carries to take his unit to a 22-7 halftime cushion, with the deficit not sitting well with Morgan. “What are you laughing about?” he said to his mates as he noticed too much intermission levity. “I’m tired of losing to those guys. They’re laughing at you. Let’s get after them.” “I want a complete momentum change,” Szydlik,

who reiterated his pre-game message for his roster members to “play out of your minds,” said to the teenagers. “I want for you to give me your best in this half.” WITH SOLID FIELD position to begin the third quarter, the Saints advanced to West’s 31-yard line after Morgan hauled in a 28-yard toss from Lenhart. The heavily pro-Neumann-Goretti crowd, whose rooting predecessors celebrated championships in 1948 and ’54 when their heroes played as Southeast Catholic High School and reveled in ’83 when the St. John Neumann Pirates made their way to the final against Father Judge, stirred when sensing this year’s youngsters would make the Burrs feel a bit antsy; however, they needed to check their enthusiasm when the Saints turned the ball over on downs. Their defenders would give Morgan and company another shot only a minute later, but a failed fourth-and-one play resulted in another turnover on downs. Happy to play the gloom provider on the sunny occasion, White bolted 49 yards for what seemed an energy-draining meeting with the end zone. Essentially needing to rely on the pass to try to mount a comeback, the Saints hoped their able corps of receivers would make major grabs and prolong the suspense. With a sullen tone that probably led fans to recall his voice in their sleep that night, though, the public address announcer continuously had to declare “Pass by Ray Lenhart,

PRO SPORTS at southphillyreview.com/blogs.php incomplete,” with mixed reads, drops and tight defense leading to three more turnovers on downs and an 8-for-35 effort from the passer. Having accepted the role of the favorite with no hesitation, the Burrs capped the scoring when White, following a safety by the Saints, galloped 30 yards for a touchdown, giving him 170 yards on 20 carries. The final drive by the Saints culminated with Lenhart’s second interception, with the Burrs running out the clock, accepting plaudits and reveling with the championship plaque. “I asked for all that you had, and if that was it, I’m fine with that,” Szydlik, whose 5-4 squad, already set for its traditional Thanksgiving Day scrum against South Philadelphia High School, 2101 S. Broad St., will next travel to Sun Valley Nov. 15, said. “Think back on what you’ve accomplished so far. Don’t let today remove that from your minds.” Though the loss certainly provided them with a dose of dour feelings, Morgan vowed it would not rob them of perspective. “This is the most excited that people have been for us in years,” the soon-tobe-graduate, who is considering Temple University, said. “We just have to stay focused. For many people, that’s easier said than done but won’t be for us.” SPR Contact Managing Editor Joseph Myers at jmyers@southphillyreview.com or ext. 124.

Against a formidable defense, junior quarterback Ray Lenhart tallied 113 yards and tossed his ninth touchdown pass of the season. S ta f f P h o t o b y K at h r y n P o o l e
