Benefit for Moon Mullen:

Community Rallies Around Ailing Fishtowner by Max Pulcini

  Many recognize Moon Mullen as the friendly face selling tee shirts outside of Wilson’s Check Cashing on the corner of Girard and Susquehanna Avenues on early weekend mornings. In need of some team colors for an Eagles game I was going to the next day, Mooney, an avid Eagles fan, and I once exchanged a brief conversation when I bought a shirt from him on a brisk Saturday morning a few autumns ago. I had always seen him outside with his table and his wares, so I figured it would be a good idea to see what he

had for sale. Moon’s eyes and smile lit up as we discussed his beloved Birds and the beating they were going to give their opponent that weekend while I bought my new shirt. Moon helped me out (and countless others) when I needed to show some extra team support in a pinch. But now it’s Moon who needs some help and support in return.   Moon is sick—the beloved Fishtowner is ill with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung cancer and leukemia. Due to his illnesses, the once active Moon has mostly been confined to his upstairs bedroom and off of the streets of Fishtown—the neigh-

borhood that he loves so much. To help him regain some independence and allow him to enjoy being outside once again, community members, friends and family are coming together to organize a fundraising Beef and Beer Benefit for Moon Mullen.   “I’ve known Mooney since I was a little kid,” beef and beer organizer Kim Kadelski said. “I’ve run a few beef and beers and he offered to do the tee shirts at cost for me, not looking to make any money for doing them. see MOON on page 4 Moon Mullen, surrounded by his grandchildren and his wife, Helen.

THE LOCAL LENS with Thom Nickels by Thom Nickels

Is it ever possible to trust a politician?   When a friend suggested that I accompany him to meet 2015 mayoral candidate Terry Gillen, I saw it as an opportunity to meet the future mayor of Philadelphia. The small Old City house party for this “get acquainted” session was an intimate affair of about twelve people, including two members of Gillen’s staff.   Of course, put any politician in a room full of people and you’re likely to get a polished, canned delivery. Politicians have to sell themselves. They have to be like those Encyclopedia Britannica salesmen of old who used to go door-to-door —men in meticulous suits and shiny black shoes with winning, toothy smiles.   Politicians are at their best in such settings because they have a captive, mostly friendly audience.   When I attended a Michael Nutter for Mayor “house” event years ago in Center City, the enthusiasm in the room was contagious. These were

genuine true believers. I’d been brought to the event by a conservative Republican woman friend of mine, a Tea Party sympathizer and a supporter of George W. Bush. I have friends of many different stripes, and I wanted to know how and why “articulate Meredith,” as I called her, was such a solid supporter of this big city liberal politician.   Meredith’s fascination with Nutter reminded me of Walt Whitman’s famous line, “Do I contradict myself ? Very well, then I contradict myself. I am large, I contain multitudes.” Meredith and I could have conducted workshops on how to get along really well with someone of opposing political views. We learned to listen quietly to one another and to offer unemotional counter views. No political issue is ever worth the loss of a friend.   This was certainly not the case with my older friend Bosh, a cantankerous but usually lovable left wing soap box kind of guy. While I usually agreed with Bosh on the issues of the day, over time he found that the tone in my writing and columns sometimes diverted from “orthodox”

progressive paths. He let me know how he felt about this one night after inviting me to dinner in his Center City condo. When we went out together for an afterdinner drink, he blasted me just as I took my first sip of wine.   “In your writing you’re beginning to sound like a damn Republican! What’s happened to you, you’re turning conservative. I’ve half a mind to throw you a punch right here!”   In the past, Bosh had told me about his periodic tendency, while sloshed, to let somebody “have it” if the situation warranted. Bosh is no knucklehead, however. Intellectually, he usually comes across as brilliant. He has academic degrees from all over the world. Politics, however, is his Achilles heel.   “Conservative?” I said, as shocked as if I had heard him call me a closet Rosicrucian.   From that point on our friendship deteriorated. It went from chatty dinners at his place to cursory “hellos” in the street to sometimes pretending we didn’t see one another when we were out so that we didn’t have to be reminded how

our once cozy friendship had become a skeleton of its former self. Today when I see Bosh with friends at the theater or opera, I know that each and every one of them has passed the Bosh political acid test.     As for Meredith, she was so in love with candidate Michael Nutter that she wanted to have a small fundraiser for him in her own digs. This is in sharp contrast to the political fundraisers she threw for Tea Party candidates, or the Republican fundraisers she’d invite me to in Old City, which always seemed far more upscale and lavish than those overcrowded “cheese and crackers” grassroots Democratic events. It was like Marie Antoinette versus the peasants. Your heart may be with the peasants, but your love of good food and nice things will always tilt toward Marie.   Yes, it truly was odd seeing Meredith sitting in a room filled with Nutter for Mayor Center City progressives, many of whom were under 30 and eager to enter the political arena themselves one day.   Before I return to the Terry Gillen part of my

Thom Nickels is a Philadelphiabased author/ journalist/ poet, film critic and feature writer for the Spirit Newspapers. story, let me say that halfway through Nutter’s first term as mayor, Meredith had become so disillusioned with him, as well as what she perceived to be the decline of the city in general, that she bought a house in New Jersey. At the time of her move, she was complaining about the crime and the late night street behavior outside her high rise condo at 13th and Spruce Streets. Perhaps the racket wasn’t the city’s fault at all but had more to do with Meredith’s advancing years and a growing need within her for peace and quiet. In any case, Meredith left the city and never looked back.   Center City is not experiencing a serious decline. In fact, the opposite of that it true and it’s because Center City is its own city apart from the city of neighborhoods. The city of neighborhoods is far from anyone’s definition of a Utopian ideal; there are many reasons for that.   As Gillen told the assembly of twelve gathered in her honor, it’s the city’s Byzantine tax structure that causes many businesses to relocate in the suburbs. Another problem, according to Gillen, is the sad state of Philly public schools. While college

grads— seduced by the glamour and fun of Center City— may choose to live in town after graduation, the moment they marry and have their first child, they exit stage right. Gillen wants more funding for the city’s public schools so that all of them, in every neighborhood, become “high-functioning.”   When someone asked Gillen about the plight of teachers she insisted that there should be no pay cuts and that this issue can be discussed later once funding comes through. Funding is her first priority.   I liked Gillen’s emphasis on the financial life of the city—reform of the elaborate tax structure, funding for the schools, ways to help small businesses, as well as the creation of 5,000 to 10,000 new jobs in a city where there are few jobs.   The jobs part sounds somewhat Utopian to me, but who am I to judge?     Gillen was educated in parochial schools before going off to the University of Rochester and then getting an M.A. in Public Policy from the University of Chicago. The University of Chicago is generally considered to be a see LOCAL LENS on page 3

  Thank you to the Spirit Newspaper for all their help with everything they have done for me over the past year and for always putting all my stuff in the paper for people to read. Thank you for all the help you gave me with getting a new wagon and helping me with the articles for my mom.   I would also like to thank all the people that donated soda, hot dogs and hot dog rolls and those who stopped by E. Belgrade St. and donated to the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). With all your help I was able to raise $2664. to help MDA. I would like to thank my nephew Brian Cella for coming down to help me set up and for sitting with me and thank you to my niece Mary Cella for helping put my tent up. It was all appreciated. Thank you! Walt Pomroy

Good Job Walt!   I would like to say thank you to my Uncle Walt for raising money for MDA. You have helped them out for so many years, giving up your time, sitting in the sun and rain. Keep up the good work. It has been 44 years. Just think of all the children and adults you have helped. Gram loved doing this with you too. Gram was not there this year but you had her dog there with you so she was there too. Love, Mary LETTERS continued on page 13

very conservative place, spawning monsters such as economist Milton Freidman. She then went to the University of Pennsylvania where she received her J.D. and edited the Law Review.     In 1993, she spearheaded a campaign to challenge the Pentagon’s attempt to cut 10,500 defense jobs in the city. She’s also worked with the Rendell Administration in Harrisburg and before that as Deputy Commerce Director appointed by Rendell. Most of her expertise is in the financial world. Gillen’s resume on her personal website reads that she has “laid the groundwork for the City’s new land bank, by creating an on-line data base of [Redevelopment Authority] properties, using real estate brokers to sell vacant lots, and engaging Econsult to measure the vacant land problem.”   She’s all about fixing the city’s financial woes.   Her financial focus can be seen in her choice of words as well as in the manner in which she conducts herself before a crowd: she uses an economy of words, gets her point across, and then frames her answers during the Q and A in a tight-fitting manner that reminds me of a bank teller stuffing coins into wrappers. If, for instance, you ask her more than two questions at a house event Q and A, you might find that her eyes don’t look at you but instead focus on someone across the room. It’s as if she is sending a message that only verbal spendthrifts let themselves ask too many questions.   Of course, taking a canned political speech on the road and dressing it up with smiles also has a speed dating quality to it. A politician—in this case, Gillen—wants to win you over, so she’s going to go to the limit in exhibiting the best human qualities: patience, an ability to listen, as well as exercising a careful watch for facial expressions and grimaces that might be perceived as sardonic or condescending. Politicians on the make have to watch themselves every step of the way. One cross word, one thoughtless gesture, one statement only half-thought-out or uttered too casually can come back to haunt them.   It’s not easy being a startup politician, but the potential rewards are many. The power rewards that await the winner of an election are very seductive. It is this power that has corrupted the most wholesome and best intended of novices.   We can only hope that this hard-working parochial school grad is one of the incorruptibles.•

Samuel Rec Center Gets Cleanup from Local Parents and Kids Maybe it was the Dress Down Day Pa s s a w a rd e d t o them from St. George School Principal Dan Markowski that prompted them to come out and clean, maybe it was the bribe of complimentary Stock’s Bakery goodies for all volunteers, or maybe it was just the fact that they wanted a clean and safe playground. On Saturday, September 27 over 50 kids and parents came out to Samuel Rec Center (aka Foxy’s) to pick up trash, rake leaves, sweep dirt and pull we e d s a n d c r a b grass in the court and play areas. Special thanks to Samuel Rec staff and to all the volunteers who came out and made a huge different over at Foxy’s! Port Richmond Proud! /Photos: Patty-Pat Kozlowski

CLEAN PLATE: Creamy Pumpkin Rigatoni by Casey Ann Beck

  The seasonal obsession with pumpkin definitely caters to those with a sweet tooth. F lavored lattes, baked goods and even the scent from a candle all represent the squash’s affiliation with dessert. While its natural flavor when cooked is mildly sweet --similar to that of butternut squash-the flavor most of us lust after this time of year isn’t really pumpkin at all. It’s the spice squad of nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and allspice, collectively known as “pumpkin pie spice.” Together, these

spices are used to create that notable “pumpkin” taste we’re so familiar with.   I’m not one to pass up a pumpkin scone, but I actually prefer mine in hearty recipes, like soups or sauces. This pasta recipe uses autumnal herbs to flavor a rich sauce and coax canned pumpkin to the savory side. Creamy Pumpkin Rigatoni 1 box of rigatoni pasta, cooked 1 tablespoon olive oil 1-16 oz. package of ground sausage 2 tablespoons unsalted

chopped 1-15 oz. can of pumpkin puree ½ cup heavy cream Nutmeg, salt and pepper, to taste

butter 2 large shallots, minced 2 garlic cloves, minced 2 tablespoons fresh sage,

chopped 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped 1 teaspoon fresh thyme,

  Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat and add sausage. Using a slotted spoon, remove to a bowl lined with a paper towel. Heat the same pan over medium and melt in butter with leftover sausage grease. Add shallots, garlic and herbs and, using a wooden spoon, stir together and scrape up any browned sausage bits; cook until shallots just soften. Stir in pumpkin puree and mix until all ingredients are combined. Whisk in heavy cream, then add in cooked sausage until hot. Grate in nutmeg (or use ground nutmeg) and add salt and pepper to taste. Fold in cooked pasta until sauce coats noodles. Serve.   The can of pumpkin puree even assumes you’ll

be using it to make something sweet: most of them feature a giant, whipped cream-topped slice of pumpkin pie on the label. This pasta sauce, though, trumps any pie, cake or latte I’ve ever had. The combination of sage, rosemary and thyme does for this recipe what pumpkin pie spice does for all of fall’s sweet treats. Sausage grease, which your doctor would probably prefer you to skip, lays the salty base for the team of autumnal herbs to melt into. The beautifully colored pumpkin puree creates a thick sauce, and the heavy cream adds richness to an uncomplicated pasta dish. •
