Mercy mercy us To the Editor: Just how much more poisoning of our ground, air and seas can our planet tolerate before it becomes a cinder like so many other destroyed planets throughout our universe? We humans were made the guardians of our home planet; it is the only place we have to live on in the entire cosmos, so why are we tolerating the destruction of it? The powers that be supposedly cleaned up the huge oil spill into our oceans, but most of that oil not collected now remains one huge clump on the oceanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bottom, remaining to keep poisoning it with worldwide consequence. Now our government is pawning off the untruth of chemical weapons being neutralized but with no other country allowing it to be dumped on their lands, especially Syria where it should be dumped in the first place. The U.S. admits to vexing diplomatic and security problems and decided to plop all this deadly poison in international oceans, further polluting already poisoned seas. U.S. officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk about

it. In other words, they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell the truth that they are about to pour more poison into an already crippled body. These people who are on the path of destroying our planet should be charged with attempted murder of once pristine but now heavily damaged seas that are almost incapable of resurgence and will soon be dead if their onslaught isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stopped right now. What about all the countries stockpiled with chemical weapons that sooner or later will have to be addressed and destroyed? Will that too wind up in our oceans? Somehow, somewhere, someone has to care and once and for all put a dead stop to the slaughter of our oceans. Someone had better start caring because pretty soon we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to care about cancer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As ye sow, so shall ye reapâ&#x20AC;? says it all.

yet to come up with a comprehensive solution. The Pennsylvania Constitution states that â&#x20AC;&#x153;[t]he General Assembly shall provide for the maintenance and support of a thorough and efficient system of public education to serve the needs of the Commonwealth.â&#x20AC;? Governor [Tom] Corbett and the General Assembly have a legal and moral obligation to fully fund an education system that provides a quality learning experience for all children throughout the Commonwealth. In order to make this a reality, the state must adopt a school funding formula that ensures that individual school districts receive the resources they need to properly educate our children. According to an Education Law Center report advocating for a data-driven education funding formula, in 2010 Pennsylvania contributed only 35.8 percent of the funding for our education system, ranking our Commonwealth as the 10th lowest state in the country in this regard. The report highlights Pennsylvania as one of the only states that does not use an education funding formula to meet the different needs of individual school districts. This limited approach must change. When considering policy options, we should review the findings of the Rendell Administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2122;07 Costing-Out Study that evaluated the unique characteristics of

South PhillyReview individual Commonwealth school districts and concluded that we need to strategically invest billions more to ensure our young people have the opportunity to succeed. As a former state representative, I understand the funding formula recommended by the study involved sensible, targeted investments based on real data such as achievement, socioeconomics, classroom size, language barriers and other important factors. It is time that Corbett and our state legislators implement a deliberate funding formula that provides adequate resources for all school districts. In Philadelphia, we have moved to increase several taxes, closed schools and laid off scores of school employees to address the School District of Philadelphiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $300 million funding gap. It is unrealistic for the state to assume Philadelphia can endure more local tax increases, closings and layoffs to make up for the lack of state funding, especially while the city is working hard to become more business friendly and many residents are set to experience huge property tax increases this winter with the implementation of the AVI. The state must step up and address our education crisis by first providing adequate funding for our schools and second, by implementing a funding formula, as the center recommends, that is tailored to the individual needs of different districts, classrooms and students. If the state fails to act now, we will be in the same position next year, sacrificing important services and laying off vital school employees. Adequate education funding should not be a political football for the Democrats and Republicans; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a moral issue. Every child is entitled to a quality education and the government is responsible for funding and implementing that system. Parental responsibility is necessary for academic success, but no amount of parental involvement will guarantee it without the resources necessary to create an environment in which our students can learn. Corbett should act as a bold leader by implementing a funding formula that will address our crisis and serve as an investment in the future of our regional economy. 2nd District Councilman Kenyatta Johnson Comment on these letters or topics at southphillyreview.com/opinion/letters.

olice arrested Marie Amari at her 1100-block-of-Cantrell-Street residence Saturday for her supposed taking of Christmas decorations from an 1100-blockof-Fitzgerald-Street abode. Officials used footage from a surveillance video captured at 2:15 a.m. Nov. 26 and insight from the public to nab the 45-year-old. The footage showed a Marie Amari woman approaching the home and returning exactly an hour later with a man to remove more adornments.

POLICE REPORT

Sharp discourse A knife-wielding man robbed a woman in Passyunk Square last week. While walking on the 1200 block of South Eighth Street at 9:55 p.m. Dec. 3, the complainant encountered an unknown male who held a pocket knife to her throat and barked “If you scream or try to run, I will kill you; give me everything,” Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. She gave him her gold-colored purse with $120, a MetroPCS cell phone and a stainless steel ring before obeying his orders to leave and not look back. She described him as Hispanic, 25 years old, 5-foot-7 and 160 pounds; having a light complexion, a thin build and short blond hair; and wearing a black leather jacket and blue jeans. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-685-1635, text PPDTIP (773847) or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

Suspect busted Law enforcement agents arrested Tishon Jones last week for his supposed orchestration of multiple robberies, including of Terryin Restaurant, 358 Snyder Ave., the site of his capture. Responding to an incident at the Whitman site, they learned from owner Ryan Zheng that just before 3 p.m. Dec. 5, an unknown male tried to rob the establishment at gunpoint, police said, with the proprietor using a sushi knife to

inflict two wounds in the figure’s back. They arrested Jones, a 19-year-old resident of the 2100 block of South Fourth Street, and charged him with assault, possession of Tishon Jones an instrument of crime, recklessly endangering another person, making terroristic threats and related offenses. They also deemed him the suspect in a Nov. 30 robbery of Lin’s Grocery Store, 2024 S. Fourth St., and a Dec. 2 heist at South View Pizza, 367 Durfor St. He had not posted his $50,000 bail as of press time and awaits a Dec. 19 hearing.

Imperfect strangers Two unknown males robbed another man Saturday in South of South. At approximately 10:20 p.m., the complainant, while walking on the 2300 block of Catharine Street, faced demands from the offenders, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said, with the two obtaining his iPhone and wallet containing $100, a credit card and identification. They instructed him to walk away and then ran from the area eastbound along Catharine Street. The victim described both as white, 18 to 20 years old and 5-foot-10, with the first having a thin build and wearing a matching gray knit cap and sweatshirt and the second having short hair, a stocky build and wearing a black fleece shirt. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-685-1635, text PPDTIP (773847) or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

How rude! Authorities are seeking help in tracking down a man who mouthed off to then tried to touch a 12-year-old girl last week. While the child walked along the 400 block of Dudley Street at 7:15 p.m. Dec. 3, she observed an unknown male following her, the Special Victims Unit said. As she approached the 500 block, the individual made an inappropriate comment to her and attempted to grab her by the arm. She described him as black, 20 to 30 years old, 6 foot; having a medium build and wearing all black clothing, including a hoodie, gloves and a mask. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-685-1635, text PPDTIP (773847) or visit phillypolice.com/forms.


POLICE REPORT Not rosy on Roseberry Surveillance video and public input helped authorities to bust the suspect in a July burglary. On Nov. 21, police arrested Nicholas Rescigno, of the 1800 block of Roseberry Street, for his alleged participation in a July 21 break-in at King of Wings, 2233 S. Woodstock St. The surveillance footage that helped them showed a man gaining entry by breaking into a side window and taking a cash register containing $600 after failing to break open the holder, police said. They detained the 39-year-old for his supposed involvement in an unrelated Sept. 23 burglary and identified him as the suspect in the King of Wings heist after further investigations. They charged Rescigno with burglary, theft, criminal trespassing, receiving stolen property, possession of an instrument of crime and criminal mischief. He will appear for his formal arraignment today.

No space to spare

Brick-headed A South of South business became a burglar’s site for a small score Saturday. At 7:50 a.m., police noticed a large broken window at Omega Pizza, 2145 South St., and contacted the proprietor, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The owner stated she had secured the site the night before at 11 and joined the authorities in watching a surveillance video that showed an unknown black offender breaking the window with a brick to gain entry. The footage captured the intruder grabbing loose change, and the owner reported that she lost no more than $20 in the incident. The video depicts a 30- to 40-year-

old man wearing a black hat and a similarly colored jacket and pants. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-685-1635, text PPDTIP (773847) or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

Authorities are seeking a suspect who hurled coffee at a complainant in Point Breeze two weeks ago. Surveillance video showed the black male entering Dean Food Market, 1601 S. Chadwick St., at 2 p.m. Nov. 30, with the figure starting to prepare a cup of Joe before approaching the counter to argue over the cost of the beverage, police said. He displayed his disapproval by throwing the contents on the first complainant. Returning to the establishment a short time later, he again started an argument, with another complainant witnessing his ire when he pulled a knife.

Authorities arrested Christopher Clark, 34, of Glenolden Dec. 2 and charged him with criminal mischief, receiving stolen property and theft by unlawful taking for his alleged involvement in the Nov. 17 disassembly of an air conditioning unit and the removal of its housChristopher ing. Surveillance video showed someone at Clark 2:45 a.m. approaching the unit on the 2800 block of South 16th Street and subsequently draining the Freon. The male returned at 8 a.m. to make off with the housing, police said. Tips helped authorities to identify Clark, who awaits a Dec. 17 preliminary hearing and who had not posted his $5,000 bail as of press time, as the suspect.

A potential car thief ended up arrested after his would-be victim identified him in East Passyunk Crossing Saturday. At 4:22 p.m., the complainant stated an unknown male walked in front of her vehicle as she drove along the 1700 block of South Ninth Street, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The motorist said he demanded her to exit the ride and give him the keys after banging on her driver’s side window. Driving away, she called authorities, who surveyed the area and found a man matching the offender’s description, Tolliver said. Stopping him for questioning, they detained him after a positive identification, charging North Philly resident Antonio Castellano with recklessly endangering another person, attempted theft, attempted carjacking, robbery and making terroristic threats. He had not posted his $100,000 bail as of press time and awaits a Dec. 19 preliminary hearing.

Neighbors in the windows A couple has acclimated to their East Passyunk surroundings through a portrait project. ■ By Bill Chenevert R e v i e w S ta f f W r i t e r

K

athy Mellina and Dave Christopher are a great team. Celebrating 25 years of marriage next month, they’ve been making the transition from Asbury Park, N.J., to South Philly for a little more than two years now, and they couldn’t be happier. They bought the corner property at Tasker and Linn streets, perched right on top of one of East Passyunk Avenue’s crown jewels — the Singing Fountain — in October of 2011. Tenants to honor prevented the couple from immediately moving in, and they didn’t get the chance to start fixing up the bones until the following March. But now they’re really settled in and getting to know their neighbors. All three floors are theirs and, on the bottom floor, Mellina and Christopher enjoy a studio space; one they put to great use in the creation of a 26-portrait love letter to their new neighborhood. “It is a wonderful place to live,” Mellina said. “We may just not perceive it, but there doesn’t seem to be much tension between the new guard and the old guard. It’s like I remember Philly when I was a kid before computers and the Internet.” The finished product, which went up just after Thanksgiving, is 26 portraits on 18-by-24-inch pre-made white signs lit internally with the help of Christopher’s handiwork. He built stands for the prints out of wood and constructed faux candles with PCP piping and LED bulbs. Christopher is the technical guy, someone his wife says “can build just about anything.” He shot the photographs with a Nikon, a “high-end digital SLR with a moderate/medium zoom lens.” It’s a serious piece of machinery, a 5to 7-pound camera that’s yielded a stunning collection of portraits from around the neighborhood. He has been shooting photos for decades but took an earnest and renewed interest in the artform, as he described it, “when digital photography and Photoshop matured to the point that I could do photography and print my work without having to do wet chemistry.” What’s surprising is that these two met in graduate school at Oklahoma State University studying statistics. When Mellina took a buyout from Asbury Park-based Bell Labs, she put it toward their own gallery that they named Cleopatra Steps Out. After nearly 20 years in the Garden State, it was

A creative couple relocated from the Garden State, and with an eye on retirement, settled into their new turf by celebrating and honoring their neighbors through art. S ta f f P h o t o b y Bill Chenevert

a job move for her husband that brought them back to Pennsylvania when he was relocated via Merck & Co. to West Point. “The photography for me kind of combines that artistic part and the technology and I like both of them,” Christopher explained. “So to me that’s a really pleasing aspect of [the project] – being able to take technology and use it in an artful way.” NEIGHBORS, BUSINESS OWNERS and employees that have crossed paths with the artistic couple were sourced for portrait sittings. To their surprise, all of them did so happily and enthusiastically. “I was afraid that they’d take one look at us and start backing away,” Mellina shared. But the project has been so well-received that now the portrait subjects have found themselves getting approached as if they were local celebrities. They were admittedly afraid that the perceived tension that plagues changing neighborhoods (read: gentrification), but were pleasantly surprised that none of that stifled their project’s reception and momentum. “The new people and the longtime residents, it resonated with them in a really positive way,” Mellina said. “This doesn’t have the kind of dynamic you hear about when you have gentrified tension,” her husband concurred. Some of their artistry may just come from one of their long-term acquaintances, Magic

Garden creative magnate, Isaiah Zagar, who helped teach Mellina how to mosaic. Zagar installed a twofloor mosaic on the side of their Asbury Park gallery, where the duo and exhibited his work years ago. And back in the summer of 2010, they came to Philadelphia and Zagar threw them in a car and took them to South Philly. When they were figuring out what they wanted to do near to retirement, the couple visited a few cities, including warmer ones like Austin and Phoenix. The two, whose only children have been well-behaved hounds, were looking for a space that they would be able to enjoy well into their golden years. A panorama of their corner of South Philly yields a plethora of conveniences. “We can go to the hairdresser, the dry cleaner, the post office, the food store, restaurants, you name it, just by walking out the door,” Mellina said. Perhaps the most charming aspect of their creative collaboration is that, according to them, they are 50/50 idea nurturers. They expand and focus ideas and provide each other with the tools the other is lacking. “One of us will come up with an idea and one of us will take it to the next level,” Mellina explained. “And the next thing you

k know it you have 226 lighted pictures in your window and yyou don’t know how it happened.” Of course, she kknows how it happpened. She relied oon her West Texasraised cowboy husband, husban but he relied on her bounding people skills and excitement for the characters that populate their new neighborhood. “With any of these projects, neither one of us would be able to do this by ourselves,” her husband added. “But the whole spirit of this thing and engaging the people and picking the right ones — that sign on the door, it wouldn’t have the same impact as it does. The idea for the project and the real essence of it comes from interacting with the people and getting just the right phrase to describe someone.” The subjects sat in their first floor (they inhabit the second and third floors for the time being) studio while Christopher snapped the images and Mellina walked back and forth, talking to them and getting them to smile and move their eyes just right. “The two of us just seem to be able to work together,” she said.

PAINTING CLASS continued from page 1

working at Thomas Jefferson Hospital’s intensive care unit. The Louisiana native, who received her medical training at the University of Nebraska, once shared backyard borders with the two founders of the nascent concept of Corks N Canvas, Cathy Deano and Renee Maloney. “Interestingly, how I found out about it was one of my colleagues at work was from Texas and she had attended a class,” Larson explained. “So I was asking around about, and the people who started the franchise were next-door neighbors; our backyards touched.” The Drexel University MBA-trained doctor started the process of opening the doors as a franchisee nearly eight months ago, aided by the South Street Headhouse District’s executive director, Michael E. Harris. “We are thrilled that Janet recently opened Painting with a Twist in the South Street Headhouse District,” the resident of the 900 block of South Second Street said. “She brings a great new addition to our business community, and it is a fun place for a night out with friends and neighbors.” “We had to do a lot of work on the insides,” Larson said concerning the space’s need for a facelift. “I started renting the space March 1, and it was seven-plus months before we could actually use the space.” THE TWO ROOMS can accommodate small to large groups and has proven ideal for bachelorette parties, company team-building exercises and private events. The franchise’s catalogue of nearly 3,500 paintings creates a great variety of options: landscapes, still lifes, abstracts, cityscapes and creative renderings of animals. Participants pay either $35 per person for a two-hour class or $45 for a three-hour class. Paints, canvases, brushes are provided, but wine is not. Kelis’ “Milkshake” was pumping through the sound system as attendees donned aprons and settled in front of easels. Anthony Briglia, a resident of the 1800 block of East Moyamensing Avenue, prepped would-be artists on the process they were about to embark on. “These are acrylic paints that spread pretty quickly, dry pretty quickly and they’re safe on your skin. It’ll be pretty much like Simon Says,” Briglia explained as he showed attendees their three brushes and got them started painting a deep red bottle next to a half-full wine glass in front of a multi-colored background. With wine poured, we put out first brushes to canvas and started painting a handmade one-of-a-kind piece of art. “People are really happy coming out of here,” Larson, a Penns Landing resident, said. “It’s a physical thing. People come here and make friends.”

South Philly denizens hold up their final product, crafted with studio-provided canvases, acryclics and brushes, all while sipping on T&N Homemade Kitchen’s wine. The bottle and glass composition suited Wine O’Clock Wednesday’s theme. S ta f f P h o t o b y B i l l C h e n e v e r t

It’s true. Even though things started out quietly and calmly, before it was over everyone in the room was congratulating one another on a job well done. South Philly residents Cathy London, Erica Dietrich and Claire Endres were excited to relax with art and try painting a new addition to their kitchen or dining room with the help of a jug of homemade wine courtesy of T&N Homemade Kitchen, 1820 W. Moyemenising Ave. They shared and joked with each other about aptitude and tipsiness. Ashley Taylor, a Philadelphia native, and her fiancée, Andre J. Webb, are attorneys who were celebrating an anniversary that night. Webb happily snapped photos of the whole class holding up their finished product and eagerly texted and e-mailed copies to anyone who wanted an additional visual keepsake. Larson’s a creative figure who enjoys wine, sure, but she was more interested in the challenges of opening a small business. “I just finished my MBA, and I was interested in branching out a little, and the idea of starting your own business and the challenges were really fascinating to me,” she said. And she’s been impressed with the clientele thus far. “I found that Philadelphians are really

sophisticated and they really like sophisticated art,” Larson added. “For the parties, they pick the more complex paintings.” “Also the more tasteful paintings, things you’d want to hang in your house,” Moreta, a painter whose work can be found at the Artists’ House Gallery in Old City, chimed in. She and Briglia are two artists who are thrilled to be employed in the arts as two of Twists’s team of five instructors and two assistants. Painting with a Twist is a solid and viable source of income for artists, something Larson is fully aware of. “This franchise is the biggest employer of artists in the country, and all of our artists are trained,” Larson said. The weekends, especially when the house is packed on a Friday or Saturday night, can reportedly get a little rowdy. But obviously, Larson preaches the tactic of moderation. “I drink wine, yes, in moderation,” Larson admitted with a laugh. “It’s good for my heart – everything in moderation.” SPR For more information, visit paintingwithatwist.com.

Since early November, the 25-year-old has been gaining priceless experience as an ensemble understudy and extra in “Elf,” the Walnut Street Theatre’s latest Christmas extravaganza. “This is the spot that feels the most like home, so I’m thrilled to be involved with the show,” the resident of the 400 block of Tasker Street said last week from the historic playhouse, which is staging the musical through Jan. 5. “Musical theater can be intimidating, but I have to learn to continue doing what frightens me and come not to judge myself, as I’m my harshest critic. The New York Times has nothing on me.” The Dickinson Square West dweller earned her educational opportunity in part due to S t a f f p h o t o b y K at h r y n P o o l e


LIFESTYLES another formative adventure, a nine-month acting apprenticeship at the venue. That stint, which she completed in May, included playing a charwoman and the Ghost of Christmas Past in “A Christmas Carol,” duties that yielded a Florida trip for filming of the Comcast Holiday Spectacular now viewable in Center City through New Year’s Day. In moving from a 19th-century tale of transformation to a contemporary take on goodwill, she is furthering her interpretation of the ever-subjective task of “making it” as a performer. “You do have to define your own version of great,” Johnson said of appreciating her craft. “With the Walnut, I’m around so many talented people who create such a comfortable environment that I’m coming to believe in myself more fully.” That process has found the actress and self-confessed “mover” pushing herself to become a better dancer. Though her reflexes require remedying, Johnson has already perfected the realization of what positivity will yield. Deriving diligence courtesy of her faith, she believes she will gain solid footing literally and figuratively by remaining true to herself. “There’s rejection everywhere,” she said, “but instead of obsessing over what we have within us, we need to realize we’re

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

good enough. We can become better, definitely, but who we are is just fine, too.” In bringing that vibe to “Elf,” the 2010 Broadway-debuting adaptation of the ’03 film starring Will Ferrell, she acknowledged that while engaged in most thespians’ eventual chore of having to pay dues, she is taking the initiative by contemplating herself as a leader in the acting community, which she deems an especially compelling assignment because of her race. “I think the African-American female performance pool is underrepresented,” Johnson said of a noticeable aspect of Philadelphia’s theater scene. “I have to set everything like that and other obstacles aside and press on because the Lord helps those who help themselves.” WHILE MANY OF her peers have spent great portions of their lives addressing audiences, the local presence counts as a relative newcomer in the field, not having acted until her sophomore year at her native Virginia’s James Madison University. Entering the institution undeclared, she had believed political science might foster her professional existence, but upon her gradual introduction to the world of script appreciation and execution, she had

ters,” subsequently settling in South Philly to tackle her apprenticeship. Deeming the Walnut a marvelous location for providing tutelage, she loves that it keeps her from feeling stagnant and encourages her to enhance her delivery, which she will do with more training. Fond of the sentiment “Life is an occasion; rise to it” from the ’07 movie “Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium,” she contends that her rising will include a reduction in timidity and the addition of even more ambition. Following “Elf,” she will work on those endeavors with the Philadelphia Artists’ Collective in its production of “Mary Stuart.” With graduate school, time charming viewers in New York City and desired participation in works such as “Stick Fly, “A Raisin in the Sun” and anything by Stephen Sondheim on her mind, she knows her self-critiques will likely never wither but will receive strong rebuttals from her aspiring soul. “I demand more of myself,” Johnson said. “I’d like to think my career has nowhere to go but up.” SPR For tickets, visit walnutstreettheatre.org.

a “That’s all she wrote” moment that rendered other pursuits baseless. “It was the first time I had a feeling that if I don’t do this, I’m not going to be sure which direction to follow or path to take,” Johnson said, with her debut role as Susan in “Bobrauschenbergamerica” bringing her a nomination for the California-based Irene Ryan Scholarship competition three years ago. Realizing her passion, she began the intoxicating mission to reach the place where she and her characters collide to offer patrons an intense look at how people, regardless of background, education, socioeconomic status or other details, can relate to one another. Her enthusiasm guided her through numerous shows at James Madison, including “The Tragedy of Macbeth,” in which she portrayed Banquo and Lady Macduff. “Even with that exposure, I had my doubts about myself,” Johnson said, noting that a theater-free period in Spain to complete her minor in the nation’s mother tongue helped her to acquire peace. “However, life is short, and you have to live it.” Graduating in May of last year, she performed in France’s Avignon Theatre Festival as Beatrice in “Servant of Two Mas-

Christmas shopping

I

Christmas. I realize religious Christians prefer Put Christ Back in Christmas, but in this country, religion is linked with financial success. Doesn’t the Bible say the rich shall inherit the earth? I am aware many of you are outraged at the increased practice of stores opening their doors on Thanksgiving (is that a prequel to Black Friday?). Maybe we can change the name of Thanksgiving to Terrific Thursday because shopping and saving money is what giving thanks should be all about. I don’t have a problem with stores being open on Thanksgiving. It’s all about freedom of choice, the freedom to shop. As far as management forcing their employees to work, I say “tough turkey.” Employees need the extra money to enable them to pay their humongous credit card bills too. You think a sales clerk at Walmart doesn’t want a shot at that 72-inch TV, and wouldn’t it be nice if they could buy their own food instead of needing food donations? If you are worried about Thanksgiving sales spoiling a family’s traditional turkey day, consider this: A good many Americans would benefit by skipping the pumpkin pie. “Skip dessert and shop” could be a slogan that Michelle Obama would approve. Think of Thanksgiving Day sales as saving American lives. Many shoppers camp out overnight in order to be the first ones in line to burst through the doors. There is a practical reason for camping out — the caveat to these great deals is “as long as supplies last.” If you have three 72-inch TVs in stock and 3,000 people rushing through the doors trying to get at them, it pays to be first in line. Camping out in anticipation of sales makes some feel young again. It’s like going back to the days when you camped out to buy tickets for a Grateful Dead concert only instead of getting high in anticipation of seeing Jerry Garcia, your arthritis is killing you and you’re eating a pint of Cherry Garcia. By proclamation, George Washington established Thanksgiving as the fourth Thursday in November. Franklin Roosevelt moved it up to the third Thursday, ostensibly to expand the shopping season and help business. It wasn’t long afterward that Thanksgiving was moved back to the fourth Thursday, probably by folks who hated FDR. If Obama came out in favor of Thanksgiving, Republicans would want to cancel it altogether while Fox News would discover socialists prefer turkey. Despite all the hype about the advantages of shopping early, there will still be last minute shoppers (make that men) in stores on Christmas Eve. You can recognize them; they’re the ones selling their souls for gift wrap. SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/opinion/ cardella.

Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) leads the dangerous crusade against Smaug, who reigns over the Lonely Mountain.

Out of character ■ By R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer

I

t’s rather devastating to report that Peter Jackson’s Middle-Earth saga finally steps wrong with “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” part two of the director and co-writer’s “Lord of the Rings” prequel trilogy. “An Unexpected Journey,” the first installment of the “Hobbit” three-parter, may have had its detractors groaning about pace problems, but its richness is much preferred to the comparative bustling of “Smaug,” which seems to pander to a blockbuster crowd that wants little more than nonstop action. Dazzling scope and technological wizardry have always been high points of what Jackson and his New Zealand-based team have conjured, but, like J.R.R. Tolkien’s storytelling, the pizzazz has been transcendent only when paired with a sense of history, intimacy, and vivid characterization. Fuzzy-footed hero Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), the hobbit who finds the One Ring that will come to be vital, is sidelined here for a parade of characters who aren’t rendered well either. Short of leader Thorin (Richard Armitage), the band of dwarves at Bilbo’s side are largely indistinguishable, as Jackson would rather serve up hectic set pieces than familiarize viewers with his players. There are certainly segments that capture the mythological and genealogical hallmarks of Tolkien’s work, as well as the stunning aesthetic talents of the returning “Rings” crew. Headed toward their home of the Lonely Mountain to reclaim it from the greedy dragon Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch), the dwarves, with Bilbo in tow, encounter Tolkien’s pet themes of greed, power, and the alternating sins and glo-

ries of the past. And when Bilbo at last encounters the magnificent dragon, it’s an astonishing sight to see, as Smaug is one of the greatest CG creatures ever to hit cinemas, and his fight with our heroes is breathtakingly awesome. Still, even while this movie incorporates exciting links to the “Rings” franchise, including a shocking encounter between Gandalf (Ian McKellan) and the true, evergrowing enemy of these tales, many seem somewhat garishly proud of themselves, a flaw akin to Jackson’s mainstream-actioner compromise. “Smaug” lets MiddleEarth appear as it never has and never should: Common.

Snicker all you want, but Morgan Spurlock’s tween-friendly rockumentary “One Direction: This Is Us” asks a question that helps encapsulate the mind-blowing success of its titular boy band: What’s not to like about these guys? The 1D gents come off as genial, talented real deals, and the movie captures them at the peak of their glory.

have to admit it is only in recent years I found out exactly what was meant by “Black Friday.” If you find that hard to believe, remember that for most males, the shopping gene is absent from our chromosomes. The shopping gene may have disappeared during the time of the Neanderthal Man when he found that he didn’t need gifts to ingratiate himself with the female species, just a big club (no pun intended). I formerly gave little thought to Black Friday. I thought it might refer to a dark day in the history of Italy when insects wiped out the tomato plants or maybe it was a day honoring African-American heroes like Black History Month. No sooner did I finally figure out what Black Friday meant when some enterprising capitalist came up with “Cyber Monday.” The latter gives equal opportunity for discounts to those who favor using their computer to shop over lining up at 5 a.m. on the day after Thanksgiving for “doorbuster” savings (80 percent off a 72-inch TV). Some sales are cash and carry, which admittedly poses a challenge for folks buying the huge television set, but somehow they manage. As William Faulkner (or was it Kim Kardashian?) once said, it is in the nature of human beings to endure. It is my understanding that doorbuster refers to stores that leave their doors locked and challenge their customers to bust down the door (the burglar alarms are thankfully turned off in recognition of this uniquely American tradition). You can imagine my surprise when I sat at my computer last Tuesday and received 102 messages announcing that Cyber Monday had been extended to Tuesday. It signaled two things to me: One, there is a dearth of creative imagination in not giving Tuesday a catchy name. Instead of extending Cyber Monday, how about Titillating Tuesday? Two, apparently Cyber Monday had not brought in enough sales thereby creating the need to extend the sale. It could well extend into Christmas Eve someday, especially in the economic doldrums in which we currently find ourselves. Maybe the president could proclaim “Stimulus Saturday and Sunday” during the holiday shopping season (something the Republicans will, no doubt, oppose as a matter of principle). I am all for helping sales during the Christmas season. I even have a motto if that will help — Put Capitalism Back in

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

S

ince Colonial times, Philadelphians have enjoyed a culinary love affair with oysters. They were plentiful, inexpensive and appeared on the menu at the City Tavern where Ben Franklin and his friends probably indulged in a large dinner. An upscale yet casual spot called a.bar opened a number of months ago at the corner of 18th and Walnut streets. Edward and I drove by on numerous occasions, but it appeared so dark inside, I was not sure my dining experience would be a pleasant one. I learned that the restaurant features half-price oysters before 6 p.m. The corny adage “Don’t judge a book by its cover” immediately came to mind. I was pleasantly surprised when Edward and I arrived on a cold evening and found the lighting to be just right. I did not need to search my handbag for a flashlight. The décor is simple. There is a long bar with two engaging bartenders and a handful of simple tables and chairs. The “color” comes from the customers who were enjoying cocktails and plates of oysters. I sipped an expertly prepared Negroni while Edward enjoyed a Blue Coat martini. The menu is simple with small plates for grazing through the night. Since we arrived in time for the halfprice oysters, we ordered two dozen ($36). Six distinctly different ones were on offer, so we ordered four of each. They included Sunberry from Prince Edward Island; Glidden Point from Maine; Wellfleet from Massachusetts; Moonstone from Rhode Island; Cape May Salt from New Jersey and Chef’s Creek from British Colombia.

Oyster lovers will immediately taste the differences among these luscious beauties, which were nestled on ice and served with lemon wedges and a slightly sweet mignonette sauce. I prefer them with just a touch of lemon and took delight comparing the degree of saltiness, light or rich flavor that the oysters imparted. Keeping with our seafood adventure, we turned to the Jonah crab salad ($14), a marvelous blend of sweet, luscious lump crab that we piled on toast points. Chefs know when to leave a top-quality ingredient alone and allow it to speak for itself. We wanted a glass of wine with dinner, and the bartenders are most knowledgeable. They offered a taste of wines to us and other customers before we made our selections. Edward picked a Pepiere Muscadet ($14) while I turned to Spain with a glass of Listan Blanco ($12). The bartenders poured five-ounce glasses of wine. The lobster BLT ($19) was a fun twist to one of my favorite sandwiches. Large chunks of sweet tail meat kept company with thick slab bacon, romaine lettuce and tomato that were layered on sourdough and placed on the panini press. We began munching when the bartender came over and apologized that the chef forgot the lobster in our BLT. A fresh one was prepared, and we found the combinations of ingredients to play off well, but I think a lobster roll bun or good quality toast would allow the ingredients to shine better. The scallop crudo, ($14) which is called sashimi on the menu, was a little on the bland side and required salt. Still, the raw scallops were top quality and very fresh. Restaurant Review:

Rittenhouse Square’s a.bar specializes in the small plates concept, including a variety of oysters that highlight the bill of fare. S ta f f P h o t o b y K at h r y n P o o l e

I looked forward to the brandade, ($12) which is among my favorite dishes. Salt cod is soaked and pureed with potatoes and served as a spread in the South of France. This version was well-prepared but needed a bit more seasoning. It arrived with slices of buttery, toasted French bread. We ended our seafood dinner with a homemade ice cream sandwich ($6) prepared with apple caramel ice cream and served between two cinnamon/sugar cookies. The ingredients were inspired by the spirit of fall and were a fitting way to end our meal. The simple concept of a raw bar and small plates is not new to Philadelphia, but the fine service and top flight ingredients used at a.bar made for a memorable night. = Very Good

Boot & Saddle’s Fresh Spaghetti with Citrus Cured Cod

M

Chef Chris Davis

Boot & Saddle Owners: Sean Agnew, Mark Fichera and Avram Hornik Opened Sept. 20 1131 S. Broad St. 267-639-4528 bootandsaddlephilly.com

usic and a meal mixed together makes for a memorable night out. Many prefer dining out at their favorite neighborhood spot prior to going to see the A-list acts at the Wells Fargo Center, 3601 S. Broad St. For those seeking a more intimate setting, the nearly three-month-old Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., offers patrons a chance to do both without leaving the building. The Passyunk Square-based eatery, which seats 60, is under the direction of executive chef and Fairmount resident Chris Davis. He described his bill of fare as an “anti-gastro pub” theme. “The menu is small and concise,” Davis, 31, said. “It is not derived from a particular cuisine, but rather from food that we feel fits the atmosphere of the dining area and the unique crowds that different bands

draw. Unlike many places with similar food, Boot & Saddle features very hands-on and fresh products.” The chef started cooking up his career plans in 2006 when he arrived in Philadelphia to attend The Art Institute of Philadelphia and major in culinary arts. A stop at Center City-based Barbuzzo, where he worked as George Sabatino’s sous-chef, helped set the foundation for his current stop as the two have remained in contact. It was Sabatino who recommended Davis to run the Boot & Saddle’s kitchen. Fresh Spaghetti with Citrus Cured Cod may not sound like the typical pre-concert dish, but it fits perfectly with the restaurant’s character. “[It] defines the food at Boot & Saddle: Fundamental cooking, simple ingredients and complex flavors,” Davis said.

As you know, in the past, the catholic grade schools had gone through major mergers, closings of some of the grade schools. Well, the same thing is going to happen to our Parishes. Some will be merged and some will be closed forever. Epiphany has over 2,000 registered families and over 4,000 parishioners. Of those 4,000, Sunday mass attendance is just over 600 parishioners. Epiphany Church is sure to close with the low number of attendees.

WE DON’T WANT OUR BEAUTIFUL CHURCH TO CLOSE.

PLEASE, PLEASE COME BACK. Save Epiphany Church! Don’t let 11th & Jackson become the location of another big pharmacy or coffee shop chain. It’s time to come home.

GREAT RESULTS

We are parishioners of Epiphany Of Our Lord Church. We have taken it upon ourselves to reach out to all the registered members of the Epiphany to make an appeal for your return to our Parish. Please know this is not an appeal for money.

YOUR 28TH BIRTHDAY IN HEAVEN

Are there birthdays in Heaven? Does the Angel blow his horn? Announcing to everybody that this is The day you were born? Can the stars be your balloons And Angel food be your cake? Presents wrapped in moonbeams All the Angels helped to make it.

All my love and prayers are being sent to Heaven to my wonderful and most loving mom, who would have turned 93 on 12-28-13. You are always in my mind and heart Mom. There isn’t one moment of every day that I’m not thinking of you. My heart is breaking because I long to hug and kiss you and be with you again. I miss you so much Mom, and I know that you are watching over me and praying for me . I long for that day when we will be together again. Until that day comes mom, I send all my love, thoughts and prayers to you. I love you so much. Happy Birthday in Heaven Mom.

Your loving daughter, Carol

Birthdays meant so much to you, They were always a big deal. Birthday presents lots of friends And perhaps a special meal. So we’ll whisper a little prayer today Asking everyone up above To sing you a Happy Birthday Song And give you all our Love and Kisses. Till we meet again, Love, Mom & Dad

A grand reception A senior wideout joined the record books with a great year for his West Passyunk school.

PRO SPORTS at southphillyreview.com/blogs.php

Curan Simmons, center, caught 63 passes for the Huskies, with 11 of them resulting in touchdowns. The senior made great use of his receptivity to coach David Hand’s system to notch 1,012 yards receiving. Photo Provided by Curan Simmons

to Oct. 3’s endeavors against the Future Firebirds. A dozen Dolo offerings met his trusty mitts, four of them ending in end zone celebrations. The quartet helped Simmons to tie the city record for touchdown catches in one game and spearheaded a 48-32 triumph. Sealing the Class AA division’s second seed, the Huskies returned to the super site Oct. 24 for a semifinal tilt against the Roxborough Indians. “We’d made the playoffs before but couldn’t get it done,” Simmons said. “I really wanted us to get a win for the school because the infrastructure and support are so strong here.” Having dumped their adversaries 26-6 Sept. 20, a game in which the 5-foot-9 threat generated 90 yards, the Huskies again proved too powerful for the visitors, using three third-quarter hookups between Dolo and Simmons to turn what had been a close engagement into a 40-12 annihilation. The win gave the West Passyunksituated athletes their site’s inaugural postseason victory and helped coaches to tab Simmons an All-Public pick. “The seniors had really wanted to be the first ones to have that experience,” he

said of entering the school’s annals. “We couldn’t get it done in the final (a 53-7 loss to the Imhotep Panthers), but nobody can take away that day against Roxborough.” THOUGH SIMMONS HAD performed admirably over his first three seasons, this year undoubtedly bore his bravado. Having taken up football at 8, he came to Prep Charter initially feeling he would gain prominence as a kick or punt returner. With the loss of a few games his junior year because of family matters, he wanted his swan song to be high on rewards and low on regrets. “People have doubted me, especially because of my size, but I’ve always felt like an athlete who can do big things,” Simmons said. “We’re a hardworking team so there’s no way I wasn’t going to give my all.” Amassing five games with at least 100 yards, he made exceptional use of his ability to generate yards after the catch, creating seams that led to 11 scoring catches. He also showed he could shut down his counterparts with two interceptions and tallied the same number of two-point conversions. Being a dedicated athlete and student figures to help the likely sports

medicine or sports management major when he makes the postsecondary education jump, a leap he will begin to prepare for in January. “I’m going to take algebra at Community [College of Philadelphia],” Simmons said of his impending three-days-a-week trek to Spring Garden Street. “I’m really excited about becoming more responsible and taking on different challenges.” He credits his impending alma mater for bolstering his work ethic and sense of communal involvement, which he has deepened through service stints at Christopher Columbus Charter, 1242-46 S. 12th St., and John H. Taggart, 400 W. Porter St., schools and Brightside Academy, 2501 McKean St. Grateful for his chance to reward his supporters via the gridiron, he yearns to make them proud once he enters the real world. “The time here will help me greatly,” he said. “The hard work will continue to pay off.” SPR Contact Managing Editor Joseph Myers at jmyers@southphillyreview.com or ext. 124.

hen David Hand assumed the head football coach position at Prep Charter High School, 1928 Point Breeze Ave., in the spring, Curan Simmons knew the former quarterback’s offensive strategies would place players in the best positions to be standouts. Believing he would have a great season courtesy of the fast-tempo system, the senior found himself in favorable spots 63 times, with his 1,012 yards making him only the second Public League performer to register a four-gure receiving tally. “I thought I could reach that goal of 1,000 [yards], and when I did, it was a great feeling and a humbling experience,” the 17-yearold, who hit the mark Nov. 27 against the Horace Furness High School Falcons, 1900 S. Third St., at the South Philadelphia super site, 10th and Bigler streets, said Friday at his West Passyunk secondary institution. “It was a rewarding year overall, so I’m happy to have been able to come through for my coaches and teammates.” In the 48-0 Thanksgiving Eve romp over the Pennsport-based Falcons, the West Philly dweller grabbed 14 balls covering 168 yards, taking two tosses from junior signal caller Vian Dolo for scores. With a late third-quarter catch, he joined Martin Luther King High School’s Delane Hart as the lone wideouts to exceed 1,000 yards in the customarily run-centric Public League. The victory capped the Huskies’ record at 7-4 in a campaign that yielded numerous individual and team memories. “I definitely knew we had the potential to be great,” Simmons, a four-year roster member who earned his starting role three games into his career, said of preparations that included trips to Smith Playground, 24th and Jackson streets, with Dolo and fellow senior receiver John Graham. “With coach Hand’s schemes, I felt I could make some plays, especially because I’m a solid route runner with good hands.” The South Philadelphia High School Rams, 2101 S. Broad St., became the first foes to observe his fierce feet, with Simmons hauling in four heaves for 97 yards Aug. 30 at the super site. The next four contests featured 19 catches and 402 yards, efforts that served as preludes
