Credit to Santa To the Editor: The Christmas season is upon us once again, a joyous and festive holiday for all to enjoy. It seems that our shopping techniques have changed. We now realize there is a high-tech version of Santa on the scene. His sleigh has transformed into a truck. His sack has been replaced with a mailbag, all filled with many holiday treats. Their attire comes in various colors, but none of them being the traditional red. They will never disappoint, no matter the weather conditions, the packages will never be late. It also does not matter if we are naughty or nice. If we have credit cards, we will receive everything on our wish list. Unlike children, we do not have to wait until Christmas Eve, rather expect our gifts within three to five business days. Anxiously waiting for a knock at the door, we as adults cannot wait to tear open the package, secretly

hoping for that perfect present, whether it be a computer, jewelry, or what will someday be our favorite pair of boots. The outcome is always the same: Excitement. Bringing back heartwarming childhood memories. Although I still hold true to the nostalgic shopping experience, I can certainly appreciate the allure of online shopping; easy payments and free shipping, without leaving the comfort of your own home. So while Santa is busy in his workshop, his new age contemporaries are doing a great job that will surely make him proud. And even though our traditions and ways of life have become so advanced, there is one thing that will be sure to stay the same. Our credit card bills will be there to greet us in the New Year. Thank you to Santa and all of his helpers. Merry Christmas. Debbie Russino South Philadelphia

Bad reception To the Editor: Because of several disturbing incidents occurring in the City of Philadelphia recently, it is my humble opinion that Philadelphia should be deemed the â&#x20AC;&#x153;City That Lacks Toleranceâ&#x20AC;? and not the â&#x20AC;&#x153;City of Brotherly Love.â&#x20AC;? The senseless beating of a Detroit Lionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fan in the parking lot of Lincoln Financial Field outrages me. The simple fact that he was wearing his favorite teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s logo infuriated devoted Eagles fans, and they could not tolerate it so they beat him until he was unconscious. Not an Eagles fan? Pay the price in Philadelphia. Another fine example of our areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lack of tolerance lies in the fact that an exemplary school teacher named Michael Griffin was terminated by the Holy Ghost Preparatory School in Bensalem because he publicly declared that he was marrying his gay partner. Gay rights advocate? May lose your job in Philadelphia if your employer does not support your sexual orientation. Do you see something wrong with this picture? Food for thought. Carol Pasquarello South Philadelphia

South PhillyReview No bummers with the Mummers To the Editor: I just finished reading your piece on the LGBT presence in the Mummers Parade (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Especially fancy Mummers,â&#x20AC;? Dec. 19), and it made me smile. As a South Philly resident, I love learning about our hood diversifying and its factions melding. As a former magazine writer and Temple journalism professor, I love reading your insights and the priceless quotes you gathered: The parade â&#x20AC;&#x153;made me the drag queen that I am todayâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Philadelphians are really more inclusive than they let on.â&#x20AC;?

t 6:53 p.m. Friday, authorities ventured to the complainant’s house on the 1700 block of Bigler Street, where they learned that at 11:30 a.m. that day, she had given entry to an unknown white male with an identification card on his chest, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. He stated her block was having water trouble and he needed to check the pressure. He proceeded to the kitchen, where he ran the sink and answered his cell phone, engaging the complainant in a conversation over cookies after his brief call. Another correspondence came shortly after, with the stranger leaving the residence after its termination, Tolliver said. At 6 p.m., the occupant noticed several items out of place in her second-floor bedroom, leading her to inspect her jewelry boxes. Noticing six rings worth $10,000 missing, she told police she had last seen them at 9 a.m. She added she suspects the foreigner spoke with an accomplice who entered her abode and pilfered the jewelry. She described the interloper as 5-foot-10, in his late 20s; possibly having an olive complexion, an average build, brown hair and facial scruff; and wearing a gray buttondown shirt and gray or blue jeans. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-685-1635, text PPDTIP (773847) or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

Cutting to the quick Police rapidly arrested an alleged knifewielding man in Girard Estate last week. Reaching the 1800 block of Ritner Street at 7:40 a.m. Dec. 19, officials met a complainant who said he had entered into an argument with a colleague over who receives more work, police said. The figure added the matter soon resulted in a physical altercation, with his peer allegedly pulling out a paring knife and giving his face three slashes. The second male reportedly walked to the rear of 18th and Ritner streets and discarded the weapon into a trash can. The complainant stated the supposed aggressor remained on location and heightened the spat. Police soon arrived and arrested Michael Bozzi, 45, of Oxford Circle, without incident. The victim received transport to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania for gash wounds to each side of his face. Authorities charged Bozzi, who posted his $3,500 bail, with attempted murder, assault and posses-

sion of an instrument of crime and recklessly endangering another person.

Unbottled aggression Police arrested a man Sunday morning for his alleged use of force in a Whitman bar. Learning of a large fight inside the Stone House Pub, 2341 S. Fourth St., at 12:17 a.m., authorities found the complainant inside the watering hole with blood emanating from his head, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. He and witnesses told them he received the injury when another patron punched, kicked and struck his head with a bottle. He received transport to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital for a laceration to the back of his dome, bruising and swelling to the right side of his face and scratches and abrasions to his face and body, Tolliver said. Using surveillance video from the location, the law enforcement agents busted 26-year-old Charles Dorner, of the 400 block of Cantrell Street, and charged him with assault, recklessly endangering another person, possession of an instrument of crime and related offenses. He posted his $2,500 bail and awaits a Jan. 6 preliminary hearing.

Hawthorne hostility A physical altercation left a woman minus her cell phone Saturday night. Authorities responded to a robbery in progress on the 1100 block of Kater Street where they learned the male complainant had been walking with his girlfriend when an unknown man put him in a headlock and barked “Don’t move,” Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The attacked party fended off the aggressor’s attempts to pick his left front pants pocket, with a struggle ensuing. The offender eventually ceased battling with him yet grabbed his companion’s coat, with the female giving chase, Tolliver said. Her cell phone fell from the garment, with she and the male vying for possession of it, with the latter gaining control before fleeing westbound on Kater Street. The individuals described the offender as black, 30 to 35 years old, 165 to 170 pounds, 5-foot-10 to 5-foot-11; having a thin build and a light mustache and wearing a light gray hoodie.

Creativity

■ By Bill Chenevert

R e v i e w S ta f f W r i t e r

D

espite an extremely challenging year for educators and students, art remains a triumphant connecting thread that simultaneously inspires and heals. As Philadelphia continues to become a world-class city, creativity has found a way to connect us all as a community. As we look back at the cover stories that defined 2013, we found more than a handful of artful narratives. From charitable efforts to mural restoration; to art commemorating a synagogue’s centennial to a lasting reminder of a troubled neighborhood’s past, South Philly has shown it’s full of the creative spirit.

he Mummers welcomed in 2013 with more color than Mother Nature could yield on a gray first day of the year. As one reveler remarked, no one wants to start a new year wearing a frown. The century-long tradition, as usual, brought parade spectators out from near and far alike, from babies to Second Street lifers. As per custom, spectators and performers partied late into the night with a multiblock blowout. Residents of two large housing complexes, The Enclaves, 3900 Gateway Drive, and The Gateway Towers, 3600-3800 Sheaff Lane, heralded the arrival of a huge standalone Shop24 good for convenient outdoor purchases. The massive, 6,000-pound machine stands nine feet tall and is 10 feet deep and 13 feet wide. In a three-part series, the South Philly Review unpacked the effects of a proposal that would close a handful of schools in South Philadelphia. An announcement made Dec. 13, 2012 by fresh superintendent, William R. Hite Jr., called for the shuttering of 37 schools. The proposal sought to address some sobering statistics: a 27 percent enrollment reduction since 2002; 53,000 empty seats; and $300 million borrowed to cover last year’s expenses. However, when a wave of buildings turned out the lights indefinitely, hundreds of families, staff, pupils and neighbors got the brunt of transitions. Abigail Vare School, 1621 E. Moyamensing Ave., Edward Bok Technical High School, 1901 S. Ninth St., and Smith Academics Plus, 1900 Wharton St., provided the lenses through which an examination of the repercussions proved ominous. The proposal laid forth would go on to squeeze students into a handful of schools: Chester A. Arthur, 2200 Catharine St., George W. Childs, 1599 Wharton St., and Edwin Stanton, 1700 Christian St., George Washington School, 1198 S. Fifth St., and South Philadelphia High School, 2101 S. Broad St.

ahmall Crandall is a visionary Point Breeze resident. And as a coach within the Marian Anderson Recreation Center’s Urban Youth Association Developmental Basketball League, 744 S. 17th St, he intends to use basketball as a life-affirming and community-building tool. Crandall’s had his sights on the Ralph Brooks Tot Lot, 20th and Tasker streets, as a location ripe with potential for improving the area’s morale and safety. And for January 21st’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, Crandall and more than 60 peers turned out to initiate a transformation. He founded I.AM.SP. in ’11 and teamed up

with the PhillyRising Collaborative and Jeffrey Tubbs, whose Urban Roots initiative takes on neighborhood redevelopment projects, to get the ball rolling. A profile of the brand new NextFab 2 Studio, 2025 Washington Ave., and the studio’s founder and president, Evan Malone, highlighted the new hotbed for creativity. The South of South facility, at a whopping 21,000-square feet, houses all kinds of machinery and tools that novice crafters or business developers can’t afford to own. Not only does the ownership and membership seek to encourage creativity, but also cultivate nascent entrepreneurs and innovators. Horace Furness High School, 1900 S. Third St., senior, Denise Reyes can draw. Really well. The resident of the 100 block of Gladstone Street received an artistic excellence commendation from the honorable Philadelphia Sketch Club. Her self-portrait at the 29th annual High School Art Show earned her acclaim with support and encouragement coming from her teacher and mentor, Queen Village’s Meredith McDonald. She was also thrilled at the opportunity to work alongside Mural Arts Project artist, Michelle Ortiz. Alan Segal almost died when he suffered from a cerebral arteriovenous malformation, an abnormal connection between the arteries and veins in the brain. He had a 40 percent chance of survival, but he beat it and brought himself back to near full recovery after major surgery with the help of a bass. The husband to the pastor of Gloria Dei (Old Swedes’) Church, 916 S. Swanson St., Joy Segal, calls the 336-year-old house of worship home. He, with his prized Kydd Bass purchased in ’05, and his Alan Segal Quartet kicked off an 11-church Jazz Sanctuary spell of jazz classics performances.

M

ore praise was rightfully heaped upon two organizations that were honored with Philly Do-Gooder Awards: Christopher Norris’ Techbook Online Corp., and Diversified Community Services, 1529 S. 22nd St. Norris is more than just an entrepreneur, though; his company is an integrated Internet, multimedia publishing and sustainable marketing and news organization. He also was denoted The Brothers’ Network’s Brother of the Year. His self-taught drumming’s also important, as he’s been studying the physiological benefits of the cathartic artform. The other victor won for a video they produced about Western Learning Center, 1613 South St., a Head Start program that rears 13-month-olds to 5-year-olds and whose secondary age group offerings include afterschool and summer programs for 6 to 12-year-olds. The Samuel S. Fels South Philadelphia Community Center, 2407 S. Broad St.,


NEWS closed its doors for the last time after its sale to the Philadelphia Performing Arts Charter School, 2600 S. Broad St. But it wasn’t all bad — the transaction wiped out a debt dilemma with a $1.7-million price tag and set in motion the relocation of older adult services to the Marconi Older Adult Program, 2433 S. 15th St. Seniors weren’t stranded in the interim. They used a handful of other resources available to them while a space in St. Monica’s parish on the corner of 17th and Ritner Streets got a facelift. Shawna Lisa, the adult programming director at Fels and 900 block of Dudley Street resident, put in many hours of cleaning and scrubbing at the 16,000-squre-foot space that now fosters loads of activities for area older adults. Around Easter, it’s a thrill to watch small children light up at the sight of the giant and benevolent candy deliverer. And on March 20, he led a Hop at the Singing Fountain on East Passyunk Avenue that benefited the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Gabe, a 5-year-old Philadelphian battling cerebral palsy and a seizure disorder. Roe Gallo, the owner of the Alphabet Academy (with four locations: two Alphabet Stations, 1631 E. Passyunk Ave. and 1510 E. Passyunk Ave., The Alphabet Tree House, 1506 E. Passyunk Ave., and The Aquarium, 1720 E. Passyunk Ave.) and resident of the 1500 block of East Passyunk Avenue was thrilled to help a family in need achieve a spirit-lifting trip to the Walt Disney World Resort.

U

.S. Rep. Robert Brady, who maintains an office at 1907-1909 S. Broad St., was on hand at Horace Furness High School, 1900 S. Third St., to dole out Congressional Award medals to area students for achievements in service. The Pennsport institution fostered many of the day’s honorees and all of them participate in the Migrant Education Program that operates out of United Communities Southeast Philadelphia, 2029 S. Eighth St. The medals are given out based on a student’s accumulated hours of service and horizonbroadening adventures: bronze medal winners are responsible for collecting 200 hours of service in three areas (voluntary community service, tending to personal development and physical fitness, and executing an expedition or exploratory adventure), with silver medal recipients doubling those totals, and gold medal winners tripling them. The Congressional Medal Act of 1979 has been celebrating 14- to 23-year-olds for decades, and over the last 34 years the Congressional Award Foundation has honored more than 50,000 youths. Otis. D. Hackney III, the ’10-appointed principal of South Philadelphia High School, unveiled a 60-day campaign aimed at launching a fundraising effort that aims

to convert some of its 5.5-acre concrete campus into green space. Hackney, along with the support of Lower Moyamensing Civic Association president Kim Massare, hoped to raise $26,300 for materials and staff. Goals included opening some of the student body’s eyes to green issues, health, and the benefits of mother nature; as well as connecting to the community through donating vegetables to local restaurants and encouraging some creative opportunities for engagement in the interest of a tangible goal. Philly Spring Cleanup was a great success with volunteers providing manpower and motivation to maintain tidiness, especially in Southwest Philly and Grays Ferry. Sponsored by Power 99 FM, the Philadelphia More Beautiful Committee and AllCity Classic, thousands bagged garbage, weeded and mulched plant beds and applied some fresh coats of paint to beautify select neighborhoods. Mayor Michael Nutter made an appearance to stoke the free labor, and in one morning 13,000 volunteers collected more than one million pounds of trash and 23,000 pounds of recyclables. In the past, the focus of the cleanup has been closer to Center City, but this year the brunt of the beautification fell on the Schuylkill River Trail, especially the Crescent of the Grays Ferry Esplanade. Governor Tom Corbett held a press conference to herald a strong new connection with Horizon Lines Inc., an ocean shipping

and logistics company headquartered in Charlotte, N.C. The Packer Avenue Marine Terminal, 3301 S. Columbus Blvd., received its third cargo load during the conference from Puerto Rico, a territory that Philadelphia will exchange goods with via the Columbus River. All kinds of items will be exchanged: chemicals, food and beverage products, medical supplies, perishables, pharmaceuticals and produce among other trade and services. The agreement is said to bring nearly 335 direct jobs and 250 indirect positions to the area.

wo local artists and activists, Susan DiPronio and Linda Dubin, pulled together an exhibition at the DaVinci Art Alliance, 704 Catharine St., to fight hunger. No strangers to philanthropy through fine art, they used a D.C.-based Food Research and Action Center report to spur this particular gesture of good will. The findings ranked Pennsylvania’s 1st Congressional District, which includes parts of South Philly, as the nation’s second-worst nutritional location for households containing children, with nearly 50 percent of minors suffering from hunger. Twenty-five percent of the profits from the show went right to the Food Trust.

Students from the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education capped a semester-long PennPal writing correspondence project with local Indonesian youth via the Aquinas Center, 1700 Fernon St., and a three-pronged service effort. Students and youths collaborated to execute a mural panel painting session, as well as a gardening and neighborhood cleanup project. Dr. Bethany Welch, the Aquinas Center director, was thrilled to have outreach from the university and to include a diverse cross-section of races in her parish and in her community. Congregation Shivtei Yeshuron Ezras Israel, 2015 S. Fourth St., earned the distinction of being the Hidden City Festival’s only South Philadelphia locale.

NEWS spaces in the city that were once prominently lively but are striving to reconnect to a former glory, landed on the Jewish orthodox synagogue thanks in large part to one of the site’s leading congregants, Morris Levin. With the place of worship as one of nine sites participating in the sixweek festival, Levin and the congregation president Richard Sisman were thrilled at the prospect of attracting new and young worshippers as well as beefing up a program of lectures, social groups and service projects. With a keen sense of pride in the three-story building’s history and objects, Hidden City would shine a light on a rich historical neighborhood institution. South Philly High School teacher Michele McKeone received a great honor when her website, a supremely effective and powerful educational tool designed to aid autistic youth toward emotional and professional autonomy, earned a momentous distinction. The six-year teaching veteran’s online tool received the Educational Services of America Prize for Innovation in the Fields of Special Education and At-Risk Students. Her two-year-old site and company, Autism Expressed, earned her a $10,000 endowment from the fourth annual University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education and Milken Family Foundation’s Education Business Plan Competition. The resident of the 1300 block of Tasker Street has made autism awareness and helping dispel unfair assumptions about children affected by autism a life goal. She emerged as one of seven winners from a 250-strong entrant pool that represented 17 countries.

hillies second baseman Chase Utley, and his wife Jennifer, paid a visit to the Universal Vare Charter Middle School, 2100 S. 24th St., with their five-year-old pit bull, Jack, in tow. They rescued him from a North Philly-based dog-fighting operation with the help of the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Their aim to end animal cruelty through their eponymous foundation brought them to the West Passyunk school to mark the beginning of a muralpainting process at the Vare Recreation Center, 2600 Morris St., which was heralded by Mural Arts Program’s Jane Golden. The mural’s artist, David Guinn, a resident of the 1100 block of Cross Street, and recent Knight Arts Challenge honoree, was thrilled to work with the school’s children three months later on painting day. On 3000 Grays Ferry Avenue, ground was broken to initiate the process of Bottom Dollar Food and Rite Aid arriving as anchors of the 3.1-acre empty lot. The buzz around the jobs it would create and the good it would do for the neighborhood was contagious; at least 100 construction jobs

would materialize, and many other bodies would be necessary to staff the 32,500 square feet of retail space. Second District Councilman Kenyatta Johnson was present to express pride for his district. In a continuing look at the massive budget cuts and the consequences of proposed slashing of schools and jobs for hundreds of staffers, Jamie Weaver took part in facesofthelayoffs.org, a website aiming to rally support for displaced teachers and counselors. The John H. Taggart School, 400 W. Porter St., would get hit hard and affect five-year counselor Diane DellaVella, as well as 3,857 other District workers due to a $304 million operating deficit (slashing 19.9 percent of the 19,530-member workforce). A particularly heart-wrenching graduation at East Passyunk Crossing’s Edward Bok Technical High School June 20 sent 151 of its final students into the world. The high school’s graduating class would be their last as a budget deficit and the School Reform Commission’s announcement that it would close the 75-year-old school and relocate its remaining students to South Philadelphia High School.

t 20th and Johnston Streets, the Delaware Valley Intelligence Center finally formally opened. Philadelphia Police Department Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey, Mayor Michael Nutter and a handful of other law enforcement and intelligence agencies were on hand to celebrate a years-long process of boosting and centralizing intelligence collection. With huge sums of money coming from the federal government and the municipality, the department’s Real-Time Crime Center joined forces with its Criminal and Homeland Security units, and the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Watch Center, plus Amtrak and SEPTA police units and the FBI and U.S. Coast Guard. South Philadelphia’s Latino community was rocked when a series of raids and questionings left residents fearful for the safety of their homes and their loved ones. Though the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency was not involved, the Philadelphia Police Department and the FBI were. As part of Focused Deterrence, the District Attorney Office’s anti-gun violence program, the FBI and PPD collaboration known as Operation Pinpoint was a sudden and swift effort seeking to sniff out gangbangers. Children were questioned, translation services were slim to none and some families saw their parents escorted out of their homes by gunpoint. Marking a shift in the management of area elementary parochial schools, Charles J. Chaput, the 68-year-old Archbishop of Philadelphia, signed over 14 schools to the

St. Gabriel School, 2917 Dickinson St., and St. Thomas Aquinas School, 1719 Morris St., are the local faith-based institutions of education that hope independent management will improve enrollment and learning opportunities. The Archbishop was primarily excited to see Catholic schools reinvigorated, but resolved to continue support, saying “They are still our schools, and we wish them well.” The Assumption of the Holy Virgin Russian Orthodox Church, 2101 S. 28th St., braced itself for a grand 100th anniversary celebration by touching up aesthetics inside and out. The reigning reverend, Matthew Cantrell, saw the facelift as a way to broadcast the house of faith’s spirit of inclusivity. Matthew Sweet, a resident of the 2800 block of Cantrell Street, eagerly participated, clearing the churchyard of clutter and unwanted vegetation, fixing the church’s leaky roof and repainting the fence.

AUGUST

Q

ueen Village’s Weccacoe Playground, 405-25 Queen St., was discovered to be a 19th-century African American cemetery when historian Terry Buckalew discovered documentation of a burial underneath the recreational site. Friends of the playground and the Queen Village Neighborhood Association had planned to beautify and revamp with new plantings, seating and address maintenance issues, but had to halt the overhaul until the City appropriately determined the location’s historical significance. After a July archaeological excavation, the burial

grounds’ dimensions were determined to be only two-and-a-half feet below ground and held as many as 30 coffins thanks to variations in the dirt. The iconic Engine 46 Firehouse, 1401 S. Water St., became the subject of great debate as its future became decidedly uncertain. When the site became unable to achieve historic distinction due to a lack of verifiable information, the New York-based overseers of the property, Cedar-Riverview LP, considered demolishing the more-than100-year-old Pennsport structure. That’s when Pennsport Civic Association president James Moylan took special interest and rallied cries for its saving, or at least thoughtful use. A concerned single mom, Carol Lanni, instigated a new town watch organization called Taking Our South Philadelphia Streets Back, after her 11-year-old son, Raymond, was harassed and robbed after leaving a Foot Locker, 2308 W. Oregon Ave. Incensed and disappointed that youth-on-youth bullying and crime goes unchecked by absent mothers and fathers, she quickly became a civic activist and has encouraged local businesses and neighbors to be vigilant but not vigilantes. Maria Möller, a local artist and historically-minded resident of 12th and Taskers Streets, applied for and got a $5,000 grant through the Fund for Art and Civic Engagement, a new initiative of the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority’s Percent for Art Program. She was curious about the history of an empty lot that stood at 2025 Federal

he Queen Village Neighbors Association Dog Committee co-chair, Sean Mellody, of the 300 block of Fitzwater St., co-founded a “Scoop the Poop” campaign that aims to curtail the presence of poop on South Philadelphia sidewalks. After frustrations with finding pet owners negligent in the cleanup department, they had refuse receptacles designed for dog poop only installed and stocked with poop bags, covered by a lid, and emblazoned with a military mutt uttering barking the phrase: “Scoop the poop. That means you, soldier. No pile left behind.” The principal of Southwark School, 1835 S. Ninth St., Andrew Lukov, got first-dayof-school help from a team of volunteers that earned the name Team Dragon. Named after the school’s mascot, more than a dozen area citizens were rallied in some part through the East Passyunk Civic Association and Town Watch. After losing support staff like a secretary and counselor in the wake of the district’s 3,859-job reduction, Lukov was elated to have helping hands guide tiny learners to their first day. The Hero Scholarship Fund of Philadelphia, benefiting families and children of fallen Philadelphia police officers and firefighters, got its annual boon with the 59th Hero Thrill Show at the Wells Fargo Center parking lot, 3601 S. Broad St. Trained motorcycle police executed stunts and feats of balance and composure as money’s raised to encourage those who have lost their mothers, fathers, husbands and wives in the line of duty. Marconi Plaza, 2700 S. Broad St., served as the host location for celebration as Mayor Michael Nutter praised trees and the arbor efforts of his administration. Greenworks Philadelphia, the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability plan which set its sights on turning Philly into America’s greenest city by ’15, touted the landmark planting of the 100,000th tree since Nutter’s ’08 inauguration.

olice officers Dan Pignataro and Bryan Sullivan, of Bridesburg and Port Richmond, respectively, responded to smoke coming from a four-homedamaging fire that started at 3241 S. Chaucer St. They both sustained minor injuries in the process of saving a 103-year-old woman from her home six doors down. The 17th district figures broke into the woman’s house in order to save her, even after she managed to refuse opening her door with the phrase: “No, hun, my house isn’t on fire.” Parents from A.S. Jenks Academics Plus School, 2501 S. 13th St., rallied to make their frustrations known as the school district’s leveling and cost-cutting started to yield concrete consequences – the combining of grade years (1st and 2nd, 2nd and 3rd, and 3rd and 4th) to fill out classrooms and reduce teachers. With Philadelphia Federation of Teacher mandates of 30 learners per class from kindergarten through third grades, and 33 for fourth to 12th grades, the district is packing in classrooms so that teachers can get relocated or dismissed as a cost-cutting measure. The district’s eventual leveling changes would spare Jenks. reNewbold is a big green project for John Longacre, the president and founder of Longacre Property Management Group, 1928 S. Bancroft St., who has already bolstered the neighborhood with projects like the South Philadelphia Taproom, 1509 Mifflin St., and Ultimo Coffee, 1900 S. 15th St. An empty lot at the corner of 16th and Moore Streets, formerly the grounds of the Francis M. Drexel School, is getting a new life with 16 row homes, two condo-

miniums and a corner retail space. After years of negotiating with the former owners of the lot, ground was broken and the environmentally-conscious project got an official kickoff. Kathleen Kramer, of the 100 block of Daly Street and 14-year employee at the Vare-Washington School, 1198 S. Fifth St., took to protesting after her class size nearly doubled due to the school district’s leveling efforts. When class sizes like hers hit limits because of the district’s shuffling of teachers and pupils, concern from the community lies with the effectiveness of such money-saving techniques.

he Mural Arts Program received a $30,000 grant from the Keith Haring Foundation after new tenants moved into the corner property at 22nd and Ellsworth streets that holds the late artist’s only collaborative public mural still intact at its original site. The mural, painted in 1987 by the Kutztown native with the help of CityKids (a New York City nonprofit) and Brandywine Workshop, 730 S. Broad St., had fallen into a bit of disrepair. Thanks to the grant, they were able to hire Kim Alsbrooks to spearhead the update with the most durable paints purchasable, and South Philly’s Michael LoFurno to landscape the facelifted park. Cookie’s Tavern, 2654 S. Alder St., hosted the United States Marine Corps’ birthday celebration. All the services were out to celebrate, but Philadelphia’s special to the Marines because it was founded here in Old City at the now extinct Tun Tavern. On the eve of Veterans Day, hundreds of revelers of all ages and from miles around gathered to cheers each other and the rich history of the Corps. Reflecting on the 50th anniversary of

President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, area residents offered memories and tales of their affinity for the gunned down 46-year-old 35th president. With so many adults, the memory is fresh in their heads of that fateful day in Dallas, when Lee Harvey Oswald (theoretically) took aim from the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository. Former Secretary of the Commonwealth Basil L. Merenda weighed in with his own memories, as he was a first grader at St. Gabriel’s School at the time. Andrew Jackson School, 1213 S. 12th St., had a lot to celebrate with a Green Roof Garden Fall Festival that showcased a brand new rooftop garden. Two parents, Melissa Wilde and Stephen Viscelli, of the 1300 block of Dickinson Street, with a kindergartener and first grader in the school, gave the latent project the push it needed. With support from their universities (Penn and Swarthmore) and the Passyunk Square Civic Association, pavers and planters were installed with the school’s students benefiting from lessons on environmentalism, urban health and sustainability.

Coletti was moved and initiated a oneman toy drive to give back to kids in need, especially significant in these months of family and holiday celebration. Painting with a Twist, 629-631 E.

Commissioned in August, London’s Ben Slow began work on the portrait painting as Mandela’s health began to decline. To the homeowner and art enthusiast, Krishnan was just pleased to honor someone who accomplished so much in South Africa, a nation in which he spent two years for business.

A Dickinson Square West native and comedic behemoth will host and perform in a four-date showcase. ■ By Joseph Myers Review Managing Editor

avid Brenner has loved espousing loyalty to levity for the lion’s share of his 77 years. The laugh-inducing legend has long aligned himself with similar souls and will tout four such figures tomorrow through Sunday and New Year’s Eve via the Valley Forge Casino Resort-situated Comedy Stars of Tomorrow spectacular. “There are as many as 17,000 comics trying to make it,” the product of the 1400 block of South Fourth Street said last week from New York City. “A friend of mine told me the cream always rises to the top, but how can someone find it in an ocean of milk?” The Dickinson Square West native answered his inquiry four months ago by inciting a search for burgeoning talents, with Jay Black, Rich Harkaway, Vicky Kuperman and LaTice Mitchell set to follow him as rib-tickling revelers at the King of Prussia-based location. Always mindful of his material and attire, Brenner will don a tuxedo when reflecting on his journey Photo provided by Kara Luzik


LIFESTYLES to placement in the comedy pantheon, and the others will likewise dress formally as an homage to their vocation’s golden age. “I believe they all would have been stars back in the 1970s when I came up,” the altruist said. “When I broke in, there were maybe 20 new comics, so everybody received exposure and we ran the whole market.” Deeming doing that today difficult, Brenner sees the upcoming pageant as his way of paying back key influences, including his vaudeville-infatuated father and Johnny Carson, for whom he made 158 appearances on “The Tonight Show,” who crafted his career. A true student of current events and political buffoonery, he will rely instead on subjectivity to draw guffaws, with life on the road dominating his delivery. “I might be in the twilight hours, but I believe I’m as good and in some ways better than I’ve ever been,” he said. “I get a thrill out of being up there because laughter is a really fantastic medicine.” Having decades ago told a reporter that providing that remedy would serve as his professional existence’s chief goal, the septuagenarian, father of three sons and partner of Ruth Marzulli has generated numerous definitions of fulfillment yet, as a master of observational humor, has noticed

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

a correlation between negative events and comedy, with the dominance of the former instigating a desperate call for the latter. “I love what I do, don’t get me wrong,” Brenner said. “However, the day I would like to see is where there are no stand-up comedians because people are enjoying their lives so much and are finding laughter within their own friends and family.” THE EMPIRE STATE dweller gained a preliminary understanding of aggression while a South Philly inhabitant. Residing in the area until 7, he found being tough and having an edge as components of navigating his often troubling neighborhood. Using comedy to mitigate matters, he contends he could not avoid being boisterous because of his lineage. “My family was genetically funny,” Brenner said of pursuing punch lines as a potential destiny-driving pastime. “It makes me laugh today when I hear there are comedy schools. It’s like the whole idea of having height schools where you go in 5-foot-7 and they promise you’ll be 6-foot-1 when you leave. I don’t think we can teach people how to be funny; it’s just something that’s there from birth, as was the case with me.” Even with a laugh-laden makeup, the funnyman, who attended first grade at

Abigail Vare School, formerly 1621 E. Moyamensing Ave., now Vare-Washington, 1198 S. Fifth St., first found fame as a documentarian, writing, directing and producing 115 pieces that garnered many accolades, including an Emmy Award. At one time despondent over feeling stuck in life, the Temple University alumnus, who broadened his worldview through a twoyear Army stint, knew his knack for life’s lighter sides could bring contentment but never envisioned their being able to provide steady paychecks. “I said I’d give it a year and then move on,” Brenner revealed. “Thanks to Johnny [Carson], I pretty much had my life handed to me on a silver platter.” That figurative tray has remained mostly free of any blemishes, with five books, including “I Think There’s a Terrorist in My Soup” and “Soft Pretzels with Mustard,” and four HBO specials, notably “Back with a Vengeance,” which rejuvenated his career last decade after a brief lull, yielding glimpses of a mind that loves seeing the present as a present. “I think things that are really stupid when you throw a light on them, plus tragic events because I want to provide some relief,” Brenner said of cherishing his “Did you notice...?” introduction to many quips.

St. John Nepomucene Neumann Feast Day Celebration

“I’m in a fight against time, but whenever I’m out there, I’m pretty sure I can still blow the roof off the place with a diverse audience that’s looking for a great time.” With thousands of such enthusiasts having caught and lauded his act, the cerebral individual often reflects on his upbringing and sees Philadelphia as the source of good and bad echoes that have informed his life. The city, which he might return to during his showcase stop, has frequently factored into his jokes, with a beloved example being his bit that gangs on Third and Fifth streets hurled youths from Fourth Street as weapons in their disputes. Brenner sees himself as a product of his birth city’s insistence on diligence and perseverance when chasing one’s goals. “I’ve known wonderful people who’ve pushed me,” he said. “I’m fortunate my type of comedy remains popular and happy to get these chances to be with more great performers. Not bad for a kid who once had a chip on his shoulder. I’m glad it never became a boulder.” SPR

The Best of My Mailbag for 2013 (The following letters to me and my replies have been edited or totally rewritten to make the columnist look better. For that, I have no apologies because my ego needs constant reinforcement and, unfortunately, I rarely get that from my readers). “No Easy Solutions” (Jan. 3) Reader: (three weeks after the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School) “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” Reply: Really? “Cliff notes” (Jan. 10) Reader: “I still say it will be better to have the draconian cuts ... Bring on the mild recession and fiscal sanity.” Reply: You’re obviously not Nostradamus. “Off the top of my head” (Jan. 17) Reader: “Brady, Flacco, Kaepernick, Ryan, Cardella, Stein-Novack.” Reply: I really think that I belong somewhere between Flacco and Kaepernick. “My bucket list” (Jan. 31) Reader: “Old man complaining. Believe me, old man, 1950 wasn’t all that great either.” Reply: You only say that because you never saw me in my high-rise slacks. “Thoughts while falling” (Feb. 21) Reader: “... Isn’t the definition of faith ... not knowing?” Reply: Uh, I think that’s the definition of “ill-informed.” “Being dense in Philly Mag” (March 21) Reader: Hey Tom, check out the police report in your own newspapers every week. There seems to be a common theme ... being white in Philadelphia, brother.” Reply: That should be “bro,” not “brother.” “Is Nutter the bad guy?” (April 4) (a column defending the mayor) Reader: “This is a joke, right?” Reply: In retrospect, yes.

Objects of their affection

“A Delicate Balance” (June 20) Reader (To another letter writer): “Don’t you have anything better to do with your time? Go find a girl. ... Give your computer away to someone less fortunate.” Reply: I have never found using a computer and admiring girls mutually exclusive, especially if you find the right Internet site. “Cocoon” (Oct. 3) Reader: “Wonderful, insightful and mostly valid article.” Reply: Thank you, Aunt Mary, but what do you mean by “mostly” valid?” “Decency” (Oct. 10) Reader: “Hey, bleeding heart liberal. How much money are you willing to give up of your own to the government giveaways for the downtrodden? Phony!” Reply: Wait, let me check with my accountant ... He just told me that I fit under the category ”Downtrodden.” “Michelina” (Oct. 24) Reader: OBAMACARE WILL NOT WORK. UNFAIR ON SO MANY LEVELS. we are going back to 236 years ago; tar and feather time, tom, you’re up.

Local news sucks.” Reply: Thank you, Dawn Stensland. “Turkeys” (Nov. 18) Reader: “I still want to know why I can’t marry my two sisters?” Reply: I want you to know I tried talking to both of them, but they’re in love with your brother. “South Philly wedding traditions” (Dec. 5) Reader: “I’m not sure we need wedding advice from a gay man?” Reply: Not true, we’re all interested in hearing YOUR wedding advice.

Hannah Morehead, from left, and Laura Jones ventured to the South Philly Review office Friday to pick up toys that will go to underprivileged children. The workers from United Communities Southeast Philadelphia’s Southwark House, 101 Ellsworth St., received many of the items through Dante Coletti, a Prep Charter High School sophomore who oversaw a three-week drive in Passyunk Square.

■ By R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer

Non-traditional love stories, florid epics and rule-breaking takedowns of cultural ills made for the best cinematic experiences this year.

7. Lee Daniels’ The Butler While the majority sings the praises of “12 Years a Slave,” too many have forgotten the raw and unhinged power of “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” the other 2013 epic to explore the crimes against blacks in our history unflinchingly. Spanning decades and offering multi-generational views on the civil rights movement, Daniels’s deeply personal vision has the soul and spark of a work that incites change. “12 Years” is necessary viewing, but “The Butler” is one of 9. American Hustle the greatest films ever made about the black Putting his madcap twist on the retelling experience in America. of the 1970s ABSCAM operation, David O. Russell finally revives his gonzo personal- 6. Stories We Tell ity and serves up a whole lotta movie, emIt would have seemed that after “Away ploying Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence From Her” and “Take This Waltz,” Sarah as vessels for two of the year’s best female Polley couldn’t top herself. And yet, with characters (and performances), and owning this family-tree documentary, the director the comic tackiness of his vision. It’s all in proves she’s a talent of boundless grace and the Lawrence character’s obsession with her curiosity, turning the camera on her relatives, fingernails’ topcoat: “It smells rotten and de- and somehow, never seeming a bit exploitlicious — like flowers, but with garbage.” ative in the process. Polley traces her roots in a manner that remains universal no mat8. Sightseers ter how personal things get, and her findings As dark as they come, Ben Wheatley’s are at once shocking and life-affirming. magnificently photographed comedy “Sightseers” is like “Bonnie and Clyde” with the 5. Museum Hours maddening rage of the 99 percent. FollowJem Cohen’s masterpiece “Museum ing working-class couple Tina and Chris Hours” makes art and life practically indison a road trip in their caravan, the British tinguishable as it follows the daily routine gem quickly goes from cheeky to horrific, of Vienna museum guard Johann (Bobby with Chris casually murdering various folks Simmons), and his platonic affair with they come across, and linking his motives Anne (Mary Margaret O’Hara). The heartto the pent-up imbalance of England’s class breakingly humane bond that’s formed system. Things really turn ugly when Tina mirrors Johann’s — and, by extension, guzzles Chris’s Kool-Aid, and becomes a Cohen’s — connection to such painters as deluded symbol of malcontent. Bruegel, whose work is displayed in the

museum, and who similarly found extraordinary beauty in everyday details. The film creates a synergy among director, character and art legend, further solidifying the value of kindred spirits. 4. Spring Breakers Mock “Spring Breakers” all you want as shameless titillation, but director Harmony Korine is way ahead of you. He uses bikiniclad stars like Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens as mere bait to present a headtrippy skewering of media trends, and, eventually, the most unexpected feminist film in years. Amid the drug-addled, guntoting excess of a misogynistic, hedonistic culture lies four girls who are never not in control of their own destinies (or bodies), and who ultimately shatter the whole MTV-bred dream by facilitating its change into a neon nightmare. Their innocence is lost, but on their terms.

“unifying” tech advances wind up isolating us more. With his astonishingly accomplished “Her,” Spike Jonze explores the phenomenon better than anyone has, expressly because he doesn’t approach it with outright pessimism. When we meet Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix), he’s already lonely and disillusioned, and when he begins a relationship with Samantha (Scarlett Johansson), a disembodied operating system, his heart is both opened and led astray. This isn’t a cautionary tale, it’s a field-leveler, using a soon-as-tomorrow future to nail how we live now, and using the notion of bonding with A.I. to combat manifold stigmas. That may be scary for some, but for Jonze, it’s transcendent. 1. Laurence Anyways Made by the preternaturally gifted 24-year-old auteur Xavier Dolan, the transgender-themed “Laurence Anyways” is set in the 1990s, but it’s an essential epic for our times. The male-to-female transition of Laurence (Melvil Poupaud) is just the hook for a story that vigorously indicts heteronormativity, maintains compassion for the status quo and treats women with enough aching adoration for three sagas. Laurence’s girlfriend, Fred (Suzanne Clément), is as much a protagonist as the title character, and their bond is one of the greatest ever committed to film. In a movie that’s gloriously bolstered by Dolan’s popinfused, sophisticated camp, the notion of “normal” is forever upended.

3. The Great Beauty Even if Paolo Sorrentino weren’t lavishly emulating Fellini and Orson Welles, his hyper-realistic “The Great Beauty,” a valentine to Rome and a gift to style junkies, would still leave your drool-soaked jaw on the floor. Yes, the tale of aging journalist Jep (an exquisite Toni Servillo) is somewhat familiar and indulgent, but it Honorable Mention: “Before Midnight,” is an experience so articulate and formally “Concussion,” “Gravity,” “I’m So Excited,” immaculate that it is often difficult to ab- “Mother of George,” “Only God Forgives,” sorb. Its swirling beauty isn’t just great, it’s “Passion,” “Prince Avalanche,” “A Touch of beyond description. Sin,” “The We and the I.” SPR 2.

10. You’re Next Directed by Adam Wingard, and starring a whole crew of his mumblecore friends, “You’re Next” is arch generational commentary wrapped in the guise of a generic slasher. While reviving the laughs-and-shrieks irony so associated with “Scream,” this tale of a rich family being picked off by invaders in turn attacks the irony so associated with youth culture, wherein sincerity can no longer exist without knowing levity. Want more irony? These mumblecore folks are partly to blame for the feeling-averse zeitgeist. Call “You’re Next” their atonement.

Franny Casper Fran, Your leadership and guidance over the past 13 years has been something to truly admire. When you joined the club, you always had a vision on how you can make this club successful. You took over President in 2004 and because of your direction; the club has made tremendous strides towards success. Having said that, you never once took credit for anything and always applauded the club as a whole for our hard work. But in February, you will finally get the acknowledgment you undoubtedly earned.

We could not be more proud to see you get this remarkable honor from the Fancy Brigade Association. We will all stand together as a club and watch as you deservedly enter the Hall of Fame with the numerous other great men!

The officers and members of Spartans NYB are proud to announce our 1st annual scholarship fund. We will be giving out a grant for $1000 to a student in the tri-state area that is an 8th grader entering a private or catholic high school. To qualify, they needed to write an essay on WHAT THE AMERICAN FLAG MEANS TO ME. Also, Spartans reached out to different businesses in our community to match our scholarship and we were very successful. So we would like to say thank you to all of them.

And congratulations to all our recipients! -Mahogany Company -The Philadelphia Animal Hospital (Lawrence Rebecchi Jr.) -Rachubinski and Rogers Funeral Homes/Municipal Court Judge Henry (Hetsi) Lewandowski -O’Jung’s (Mr. and Mrs. Louis Jung) -Brianna McGraw in loving memory of her grand-fathers William Page and Joseph Slivinski

The officers and members of Spartans NYB would like to thank the following people and businesses for their help throughout our 1st year. Without them we couldn’t have been so successful. Mr. and Mrs. Louis Jung, Wolly Mammoth, Stonehouse Pub, Second Street Irish Society, Normans, David Rigler, Timothy Luko Jr., Al DeBono, Quaker City String Band, St. John Neumann/Maria Goretti High School, Eric Bartello, The New Sound Brass Band, our Women’s Auxiliary, the Inn of Cape May, and all of our family and friends.

2014 MUMMERS GUIDE

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

Meet the captains Tradition seems to be the common theme among the 2014 class of Philadelphia Mummers Fancy Brigade Association leaders as they make the final preparations for New Year’s Day. Brigade: Avenuers

BOB FITZMAURICEM

Captain: Bob Fitzmaurice Years as captain: 26

Why did you become a Mummer? “[It’s a] family tradition.”

What is your best Mummers Parade memory? “First time winning top three, rst time winning [second] captain prize.” What are your thoughts on the 2014 competition? “It gets tougher and tougher each year.”

brother, Dan Tursi Jr., were both captains of the brigade before myself. I marched in the parade [as] a child and while both my father and brother were captains.”

What is your best Mummers Parade memory? “In 1987 winning rst prize, and my father’s excitement of telling the brigade members. This is a feeling you never forget, and the enjoyment that everyone has at the moment is overwhelming. Also in 2002, with a Voodoo theme, I was the captain that was able to tell my brigade that we received fourth prize, and I felt it was one of our better performances, where many things worked out for us as planned.”

What are your thoughts on the 2014 competition? “The competition is getting harder, which ultimately makes the show much better for all the brigades. Even though it is a competition, it turns out to be a very friendly one where we can count on each other for help and support. The camaraderie of different brigade members is what [the] Mummers is all about.”

Brigade: Downtowners

‘Return of the Dragon’”

What are your thoughts on the 2014 competition? “I think it has the makings of being the best parade in the [Pennsylvania Convention Center] so far given the diversity of themes and talent of each individual brigade.”

Brigade: Golden Crown

JOEY GALLAGHERM

Sunrise. My uncle, Pat ‘Good Time Pat’ Gallagher was captain of the famous Freelancers comic club, so my father went a different path to the Jokers, and like most kids that grow up in a clubhouse ... You never leave.”

BOB RUNOWSKIM

Captain: Bob Runowski Years as captain: Five

Why did you become a Mummer? “My uncles (Chalie Stinsman and Mike “Huck-UH-Buck” Grubb) put me in the parade at 5. If you know ‘Huck,’ you know I didn’t have a choice. (haha).”

Brigade: Clevemore

What is your best Mummers Parade memory ? “Parading with my daughter Stella in her rst parade [2013].”

FRANKIE DEVITOM

RALPH TURSIM

Captain: Ralph Tursi

Years as captain: 19

Why did you become a Mummer? “My family’s involvement. My grandfather Ralph Tursi founded Clevemore in 1936, and my father, Dan Tursi Sr., and

What is your best Mummers Parade memory?: “1998. A lot happened that year. It was the rst time I was a brigade champ, rst year we entered the Convention Center, and last time I [saw] the Hall’s bright lights. It’s a shame I just remember that day, because the next week was a blur ... I will say, if you ask me the same question next year, it’s going to change. I’m very excited that my oldest son Kellan will be side-by-side with me for his rst Mummers Parade.” What are your thoughts on the 2014 competition? “The competition is very tough, but that’s a good thing! We want the show to get better each year, and it has! It’s so hard to do well because everyone is good. So the only thing you can do is give it your all and leave everything on the oor.

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

Why did you become a Mummer? “Wasn’t really a choice, I was born into it. [I] grew up with my father being captain for 20 years, and from the rst time [I’d] seen a drill I was hooked.”

What is your best Mummers Parade memory? “Honestly, [there are] too many to choose from, but I’m looking forward to making new memories this year and the years to follow.”

that’s inside you that you can’t explain.”

What are your thoughts on the 2014 competition? “I’m excited about this year’s parade. There are so many great themes, and the competition level is at its peak. Every club pushes the other to be the best they can be and when it’s all said and done, no matter the outcome, we can all sit back and be proud of all our accomplishments and start game planning for the next year. What a vicious circle!”

Why did you become a Mummer? “I was born into it. My grandfather Joe ‘Pop’ Bryson had his own comic brigade. Before I could even walk, I was put in a suit and pushed up Broad Street in a stroller. I guess you can say it’s in my blood.”

Captain: Gerald Roccia Years as captain: Two

Why did you become a Mummer: “I was born into it. Our founder and former captain Carmen D’Amato, and recently retired captain, Peter D’Amato, are my uncles. As you can see I didn’t have much of a choice on becoming a Mummer. It’s just in our family blood.” What is your best Mummers Parade memory?: “New Years’ night 2013 when I stood on our atbed truck and announced that we had won rst prize in our division. I always dreamed of doing that as captain, and [when] it happened it was like living a dream.

What is your best Mummers parade memory? “Being a Mummer for over 35 years, there are so many fond memories. I couldn’t possibly begin to single out just one. In all honesty, I think my best parade moment will happen in this year’s parade ... when my rst-year club, The Spartans, take the street for the rst time. This is a feat I am already so proud of both myself, as well as my members, for accomplishing.” What are your thoughts on the 2014 competition? “Each club puts its heart, soul and pride into the competition ... and in return every year is more impressive.

What is your best Mummers Parade memory? “In 2003, our theme was Scotland Land of the Clans. Our goal for the year was to pick a theme we can have a lot of fun with but also save some money to put back into our clubhouse. The parade was cancelled that year, but the brigades performed in the Convention Center and the results were held for a week. The anticipation was unbearable. The results were in and my father, Captain Mickey Adams, gave a speech that still run chills down my spine! It ended something like this: ‘Next week we’ll be in our sweaters and berets because we got ONE and ONE.’ The club erupted and I never had a Mummer moment like it.”

What are your thoughts on the 2014 competition? “Every year the competition gets strong and stronger. It really is amazing what each club can come up with. Regardless of a prize, hopefully everyone feels a sense of accomplishment when they walk off the oor.”

What are your thoughts on the 2014 competition: “I’m very excited as I always am, not just for our club, but for all my fellow captains and their clubs as we all look forward to seeing what each of us has been working on all year. The South Philly Vikings are looking forward to putting on another great performance for our members, marshals, families and our supporters, which we all could be proud of regardless of our nish on New Years’ night. Happy New Year to all, and see you at the parade.”

Marge’s Dream Whip Cake

Ring in 2014

N

F

ow that Christmas has passed, it’s time to start thinking about those New Year’s Eve plans. Many prefer going out to a restaurant or club where a crowd of wall-to-wall revelers will loudly be counting down to 2014. Others enjoy the less crowded ambience of hanging out at home or at a friend’s house. No matter where the party is, dessert needs to be covered, and Marge Lord’s easy-to-make Dream Whip Cake may leave guests fighting over slices between toasts. Now that the resident of the 2100 block of South Hancock Street has graciously shared her recipe, it may not be a bad idea to make more than one. SPR

Federal Donuts’ Gingerbread Glaze

C

Chef Matt Fein

Federal Donuts

Owners: Michael Solomonov, Steven Cook, Tom Henneman, Bob Logue and Felicia D’ Ambrosio Opened Oct. 2011 1219 S. Second St. 267-687-8258 federaldonuts.com

hef Matt Fein settles into a seat by the front window at the Rittenhouse Square location of Federal Donuts. He hasn’t had much time to sit down and talk on this extremely busy Friday morning in which the establishment had sold more than 1,000 donuts in less than four hours. The popular items come in a variety of flavors and fall under the fancy or hot category. The 1632 Sansom St. site that he oversees is the sister location of the Pennsport-based original, 1219 S. Second St., which opened in the fall of 2011. The Cambridge School of Culinary Arts graduate, who resides in Center City, showed no fear of the constant workload as customers placed their orders at the counter. After enjoying some restaurant stints in Massachusetts and Yardley, Fein came to Philly to work as a line cook for Michael Solomonov at Society Hill-based Zahav, which specializes in Israeli-Mediterranean cui-

sine. Solomonov liked what he saw, as he offered Fein the head chef position at the Center City-based Federal Donuts location, which he co-owns. Being the holiday season, the popular establishment, which also is known for its fried chicken and coffee, is currently offering Gingerbread Glazed Donuts. “We unveiled it right after Thanksgiving, and it has been very popular since,” Fein said. Those reading this feature in hopes of getting the top secret donut recipe are out of luck. However, the same rule doesn’t apply for the Gingerbread Glaze, which the chef said can be used on sugar cookies, as well as any type of pastry or cake. “It’s very versatile,” Fein said as he prepared to head back to the kitchen for the lunchtime rush.

Love You Very Much

John Lacy Brown

July 28, 1931 – December 24, 2012 We thought of you with love today, But that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday, And days before that too. We think of you in silence. We often speak your name. Now all we have is memories, And your picture in a frame. Your memory is our keepsake With which we’ll never part. God has you in his keeping. We have you in our heart. Dearly loved by Bootsie, Skip, Gene, Thelma, Pooh, Maria, Robert and ALL your grandkids

In Loving Memory

Merry Christmas Dominic and Happy New Year. Love you, Mom, Tony and family


ObitObituariesObit Our Angel is Gone RIP Samer Albarouki

Sunrise July 1, 1969 • Sunset December 10, 2013 You bought all your Christmas gifts. You decorated your house, and Before you could enjoy the holidays, God took you away at a young age of 44. You were the glue that held our family together and we will never be the same without you. You left behind your wife, 4 kids, your mother, 2 brothers, and 3 sisters that miss you so much. We wish you a happy journey my angel and we know you are with us in spirit.

From Samaher & Najeeb Saad

Jason Richetti 7.6.1980 - 9.1.2013

Jason, We miss you everyday. We miss your smile and laugh. We still can’t believe your’re gone. We and the world lost a good person with a Big heart. You were one of a kind and will never be forgotten. We cry everyday being without you but we know you are with God in Heaven smiling down on us.

ERIC W. UTSEY

Which occurred on December 10, 2013. Funeral services were held Saturday December 21, 2013 at the New United Baptist Church in Washington DC

Love Mommy, Daddy, Louie, Renee, Kelly & Jamie

JOSEPH (BIG JOE)

09/01/1946 12/03/2013 God watched you as you suffered, and knew you had your share. He gently closed your weary eyes and took you in His care. Your memory is our keepsake, with that we will never part. God has you in his keeping, we have you in our hearts. Nothing can be more beautiful than the memories we have of you. To us you were someone special, God must of thought so too. All our lives we shall miss you, as the years come and go, but in our hearts you will live forever, because we love you so. God saw you were getting tired, and a cure was not to be. So He put His arms around you and whispered “Come with me”. With tearful eyes we watched you suffer and fade away. Although we loved you dearly, you were not meant to stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us. He only takes the best!

The Nasen family would like to express their appreciation for the outpouring of love and support from their family and many friends.

Joseph Myers talks

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

Crowning achievements South Philly’s athletes again made most foes miserable in a year rife with championship moments. ■ By Joseph Myers Review Managing Editor

P

laying with as much, maybe even more, drive as the area’s professional performers, many contributors had their schools reveling by earning titles, signing with prominent postsecondary education sites and giving their all no matter the circumstances. What will 2014 hold? If this year is any judge, the Eagles, Flyers, Phillies, 76ers and Union might have found their next couple generations of stars.

our-hundred meters specialist Maliyah Matthews, of 20th and Titan streets, placed fourth in the Brooklyn-based 39th Colgate Women’s Games. That nish furthers a career that also features gold medals at the Keystone State Games. Thirty years after she garnered renown as a football player for St. Edmond School, formerly 23rd and Mifflin streets, Roe Germana, a native of the 2000 block of South Croskey Street, reflected on her trailblazer

status. The New Jersey resident expressed support for 11-year-old Doylestown dweller Carolina Pla, who eventually prevailed in her petition to the Archdiocese of Philadelphia to let her continue to square off against boys. Competing as St. Richard Catholic Youth Organization roster members, the girls at St. Pio Regional Catholic School, 1826 Pollock St., scored their third straight Region 6 title and undefeated season. The Marconi-based youngsters downed Our Lady of Hope Regional Catholic School, 1248 Jackson St., for the crown. They had lost a touch of their air of invincibility against parochial foes with a rare league loss against La Salle College High School, but the boys basketball players from Ss. Neumann-Goretti High School, 1736 S. 10th St., showed they are still the hunted after beating St. Joe’s Prep 60-42 at the Palestra. The triumph earned the Saints their fifth straight league title. They would later earn their fifth consecutive Class AAA City championship, too.

MARCH

G

iving its East Passyunk Crossing school another set of bragging rights, the Neumann-Goretti girls’ basketball squad romped to the District 12 Class AA title with a 57-26 win over Imhotep Charter. The young ladies did so under the guidance of rst-year coach Letty Santarelli. West Catholic High School baseball standout Joe Aliano, of the 100 block of McClellan Street, entered the Burrs’ sports Hall of Fame. A 2010 Neumann-Goretti graduate, guard Tyreek Du-

at southphillyreview.com/blogs.php ren made his junior campaign for the La Salle University Explorers a thrilling one, helping his institution to win three NCAA Tournament games. He deposited 14.2 points per game for the Atlantic-10 school, which made its first Sweet 16 appearance since 1955.

vercoming a four-run decit, the Prep Charter High School baseball unit, 1928 Point Breeze Ave., stunned the now-three-time defending Public League champion Frankford Pioneers 6-5. The Huskies took the lead in the home half of the sixth inning on a single by third baseman Joe Suppa. Then-Palumbo sophomore Benny Sinakin earned the Philadelphia Golden Gloves 15-16 heavyweight championship with a unanimous decision over Chad Johnson at Kensington’s Front Street Gym. The resident of the 2400 block of South Orkney Street trains under former fighter Andre “The Bull” Horne, with whom he shares a nickname. Already a decorated track star through a stint at West Catholic, Todd Townsend added to his accolades with a medal-heavy senior year for Neumann-Goretti. He helped the Saints’ 4x400 team to finish third at the 119th Penn Relays and received a scholarship to North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. Senior forward Jameal Tucker made history for the Palumbo Griffins by becoming his Hawthorne school’s first basketball player to earn a scholarship. The FirstTeam Division D honoree signed with Bloomsburg University.

feared batter while at NeumannGoretti, Albert Baur continued to imperil pitchers while suiting up for South Carolina’s Newberry College. The resident of the 200 block of Daly Street earned Second-Team AllConference distinction and a Gold Glove and stroked 78 hits, good for fourth among The boys from Bok won their school’s last home baseball game with a final-inning comeback. Local children took to Sacks Playground for a National Youth Soccer Month celebration. File photos

occer star Darius Madison, a resident of 18th and Catharine streets and a product of the Anderson Monarchs at the Marian Anderson Recreation Center, 744 S. 17th St., helped the U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team to qualify for the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Turkey. Eleven months later, he and his Virginia Cavaliers teammates reached the seminals of the College Cup in Chester. Senior forward Jeremiah Worthem powered the Mathematics, Civics and Sciences Charter School to a 23-1 start on their way to a 26-3 mark and runs to the Public League’s Class A quarterfinals and the state semifinals. The resident of 21st and McKean streets attends Pittsburgh’s Robert Morris University.

On their way to a 13-10 year, The Academy at Palumbo Griffins basketball performers, 1100 Catharine St., dumped A. Philip Randolph High School 51-43 in a thrilling home contest. The Hawthorne ballers would later score their program’s first postseason victory. Marvin O’Connor, a native of the 3000 block of Hemberger Terrace, earned enshrinement in the Philadelphia Big 5 Hall of Fame. The former Saint Joseph’s University Hawks star has turned his love of basketball into a campaign to open a Germantown-situated community center. Though they could not gut out a win against Simon Gratz on coach Doreen Coleman’s birthday, the South Philadelphia High School Rams basketball standouts, 2101 S. Broad St., enjoyed a fi ne season, advancing to the Round of 16 in the Public League Class AAAA playoffs and registering a 13-9 record.

SPORTS Division II players. Down to their last out in their program’s final home game, the Edward Bok Technical High School Wildcats, formerly 1901 S. Ninth St., rallied to beat the Samuel S. Fels High School Panthers 13-12 at the super site, 10th and Bigler streets. The comeback marked the institution’s lone win on the year. Facing the end of its two-year reign as league champion, the Neumann-Goretti baseball team regrouped after going down 5-0 to score an 8-7 extra-inning triumph against the Cardinal O’Hara Lions. The Saints plated the quarterfinal win at McNichol Field, 26th and Moore streets, on a botched grounder in the ninth. Looking to build up his football prowess by adding field events, then-sophomore Joe D’Emilio made Neumann-Goretti proud by registering a second-place shot put effort at the PIAA District 12 AA Championships. The resident of the 1300 block of Reed Street later added a Second-Team AllCatholic offensive line commendation.

JUNE

I

n a battle of East Passyunk Crossing versus West Passyunk, Neumann-Goretti overcame Prep Charter 5-2 for their thirdstraight Class AA City baseball title. Having completed a two-year return to his native Dominican Republic for baseball tutelage, pitcher Agustin Gil proved the ace for the Horace Furness High School Falcons, 1900 S. Third St. The right-hander, of 28th Street and Snyder Avenue, won MVP honors for the Public League’s Division D and the C/D All-Star Game at Ashburn Field, where he capped his career as a Carpenter Cup participant. Following 65 years that included 270 wins and 206 All-Star selections, the football program at Bok officially ended as a result of the School District of Philadelphia’s staggering budget crisis. Graduating as the second-ranked student at Girard Academic Music Program, 2136 Ritner St., Joe Brinkman also proved a baseball behemoth, too, earning a FirstTeam Division A accolade and the A/B All-Star Game MVP nod. The resident of Sixth and Shunk streets now attends the University of Pennsylvania.

econd baseman Mike “Zoom” Zolk, an ’11 Neumann-Goretti alumnus, helped the University of North Carolina Tar Heels make their 10th trip to the College World Series.

The leader and New Jersey denizen guided the baseball team to nearly 300 wins and the ’02 Public League title, while overseeing 130 wins for the Pioneers as the basketball head man. The Flyers’ most successful regular season and playoff coach with 308 and 48 wins, respectively, Fred Shero gained posthumous admission into the Hockey Hall of Fame’s Builders category. He guided the Broad Street Bullies to the franchise’s two Stanley Cup championships in 1974 and ’75. Their family’s fourth generation of tennis buffs, Terell and Cherelle Moore went from fledgling performers through the South Philadelphia Tennis Association’s program at Edwin M. Stanton School, 1700 Christian St., to respected ballstrikers through the National Junior Tennis & Learning program. The siblings, from the 1500 block of Federal Street, spent their summer improving their strokes at Barry Playground, 1800 Johnston St.

lynn Phelan enjoyed a 37-goal season as a member of John W. Hallahan Catholic Girls’ High School’s inaugural lacrosse team. The thenfreshman and resident of the 2100 block of South Howard Street tallied the rst score in program history, earned SecondTeam All-League honors and received an invitation to try out for the Under Armour All-American team. The premier Ball 4 Peace helped Unity in the Community to bring an athletic element to its Peace Week celebration at Vare Recreation Center, 2600 Morris St. The basketball duel saw a team of North and South Philly athletes down a South Phillyonly group featuring Neumann-Goretti alumnus Earl Pettis and Southern product Jason Saab, 75-71. After a heavy recruiting season that included his helping Neumann-Goretti to more renown, senior guard Ja’Quan Newton ended suspicion by choosing the University of Miami. The two-time First Team All-Catholic entered this season well within reach of becoming the Saints’ all-time leading scorer. Continuing their predecessors’ knack for gaining renown and enjoying travel, the Delaware Valley 12-and-under Senators ventured to Cooperstown, N.Y. for the AllStar Village Tournament. Based out of the Delaware Valley Youth Athletic Association, 2840 S. 18th St., the players compiled a 4-4 mark to finish ninth in the 32-team field. Ahead of their final preseason game, the Philadelphia Eagles played host to homeless students at Lincoln Financial Field, 1020 Pattison Ave. The learners, all members of The Teen Evolution Experience Network, received autographs from the Birds following the well-received session.

SEPTEMBER

F

eaturing many transports from the defunct Bok program, the football team from Southern succumbed to Prep Charter 32-8 in its season opener. The victors received two rushing touchdowns from junior running back Tarr Monway and 97 receiving yards from senior Curan Simmons. Having gained a reputation as a stellar team player, Mathematics, Civics and Sciences Charter School senior guard Louis Myers reaped the reward for his selflessness by committing to Norfolk State University. The resident of the 1600 block of Catharine Street starred for Southern before joining his current Center Citysituated location. Also the owner of a sound reputation as a basketball player, Neumann-Goretti senior wide receiver Jamal Custis made good on his more documented football prowess by committing to Syracuse University. The resident of the 1500 block of South 32nd Street became the third member of his family to win an athletic scholarship. After a playoff-less season in their previous lockout-abbreviated campaign, the Philadelphia Flyers sought distinction in the always-tough Eastern Conference. Following a wretched start that led to coach Peter Laviolette’s firing, the hockey heroes have rebounded under replacement and former bruiser Craig Berube.

OCTOBER

S

outh Philly youngsters congregated at Sacks Playground, 400 Washington Ave., to participate in the 11th annual National Youth Soccer Month celebration. The event drew numerous members of squads based out of Capitolo Playground, 900 Federal St. A hero to his family and friends for successfully dealing with a congenital heart defect, Roman Catholic High School freshman Alex Durelli became a commended Catholic League golfer by earning AllCatholic honors. The resident of the 2800 block of South Mildred Street finished as the second-ranked Cahillite and competed in the District 12 Championships. The Work to Ride Equestrian team, featuring Kareem Rosser, formerly of Taney and Tasker streets, and Brandon Reese, a Palumbo graduate, traveled to Arizona for the Scottsdale Ferrari-Maserati Polo Championships. The unit dropped a 9-2 decision to the University of Virginia. After a sluggish start, the Prep Charter football team let its commitment match its talent in a 40-12 super site-situated thumping of Roxborough. The four-touchdown decision gave the unit its school’s first pigskin playoff victory.

NOVEMBER

R

eaching its institution’s rst championship game in 30 years, the Neumann-Goretti football team fell to West Catholic, 34-9, in the AA-title tilt at the super site. The local parochial squad had advanced to the contest by going 3-1 in their division under Coach of the Year C.J. Szydlik. He as a runner and she as a walker, Gaeten Dominic and Carmena Pyfrom participated in the Gore-Tex Philadelphia Maraton. The former, a Packer Park resident, made his 18th appearance, while the latter, of West Passyunk, tested her tenacity for the sixth time. Palumbo student Chris Bernard, of the 1600 block of Moore Street, earned a scholarship to the Drexel University-situated Lebow College of Business Summer Economics Institute by finishing as the top junior at the Seventh Philadelphia Metropolitan Grade/ High School Chess Championship. He and his mates finished third overall. Dueling for the 79th time on Thanksgiving Day, the Southern Rams and Neumann-Goretti Saints, the latter donning uniforms from their days as the Pirates, contested the Turkey Bowl at the super site. The public league team scored its first series win since 2004 by rolling 33-6.

DECEMBER

D

epositing 52 goals for the Penn Charter School Quakers, sophomore star Jlon Flippens led her institution to soccer glory with the acquisition of the Inter-Ac League title and Independent Schools Tournament championship. The resident of the 2200 block of South 24th Street has received Top Drawer Soccer’s ranking as the state’s top sophomore. Thanks to a wonderful season-concluding effort against Furness, Curan Simmons became only the second Public League wide receiver to top 1,000 yards. The popular target tallied 63 passes for 1,012 yards and created 11 touchdown celebrations. Senior wide receiver Jawan McAllister helped St. Joe’s Prep win the Class AAAA Catholic League crown, AAAA City championship and Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association title by snaring 32 passes for 485 yards and seven touchdowns. The resident of the 1800 block of Sigel Street, who earned SecondTeam All-League honors, will attend the University of Pittsburgh as a baseball standout.
