It's tough to say which cross is harder for Phillies fans to bear: the team's performance over the last two years, or the Veterans Stadium concessions any time. Loyalty tugged me down to Broad and Pattison last week. Previous encounters with the nachos, the pizza and the dreaded chicken dogs taught me to pack a snack. A couple of hoagies from Joanne's Food Market and Deli in South Philadelphia seemed suitable. But in retrospect, I don't think I'd bring a Joanne's hoagie to a ball game again.

It was a salt assault, according to Pennsylvania State Police. Officers in the Dublin barracks in Bucks County say that a 16-year-old convenience store clerk purposely loaded an "excessive amount of salt" on a ham and cheese hoagie ordered by a state trooper late last month. On Monday, they charged the youth with disorderly conduct, which carries a maximum fine of $300. "It may not seem important to you . . . but if you were eating the sandwich, it would have a different impact," Lt. Daniel T. Worst said yesterday.

In an attempt to stem further racial hostility and to set the record straight, Mayor Goode and some of the city's top brass tried to dispel rumors about the shooting death last month of a Southwest Philadelphia man at the Wild Wild West hoagie shop at 52nd Street and Kingsessing Avenue. "What we're trying to do is make sure that people who live in that neighborhood are properly informed as to what happened and what we're doing in order to respond to what happened," Goode said at a City Hall press conference last night.

What a difference two weeks make. The Wild Wild West hoagie shop, where the Korean-American store owner's son fatally shot a black resident three months ago and sparked bitter, racially divisive demonstrations, is now called Southwest Delight. Customers appear to be returning and police have disappeared. But protesters, gone from the shop on 52nd Street at Kingsessing Avenue in Southwest Philadelphia since Aug. 31, are not saying whether the reign of quiet is permanent or if they plan to return to the streets.

The first time I saw a sign in the Italian Market for Vietnamese hoagies, I didn't give it much thought. I envisioned a regular hoagie with nuoc mam - Vietnamese fish sauce - instead of oil or mayo. I've since discovered the Vietnamese hoagie is something with a personality all its own. At the Viet Huong Cafe, inside the new Hoa Binh Plaza at 16th Street and Washington Avenue, the woman who made my Vietnamese hoagie told me they'd been invented in California. Viet Huong's excellent hoagie ($1.50)

The Whitemarsh Township Planning Commission has reluctantly approved an application to erect a sign that one member of the commission said would "set a new standard for ugly. " The commissioners voted 5-1 Tuesday night to issue the necessary building and zoning permits to John McClelland of Oreland, the owner of 806 Bethlehem Pike, site of a proposed hoagie shop. McClelland's attorney, John Hasson, told the board that the sign would be 4 feet by 6 feet. It would have a white background, red lettering and a green border.

Here's a hoagie recipe dedicated to Fast Eddie, our former mayor and future governor. Back in the summer of '99, the folks at Wawa introduced the Rendelli, a spicy sub they named after the guy they called the "number one hoagie fan in Philadelphia. " The Rendelli lasted only a few weeks on the menu board, but while it was around it sure was a hit. Like all of Wawa's sandwiches, this one was available in Junior, Shorti or Classic size. The recipe here makes a Shorti (six-inch sub)

Gary Cohen's deli in South Philadelphia is a veritable hall of neighborhood fame. As a hobby, besides making up sandwiches, he takes photographs of his customers - kids and grownups - and puts their pictures on the walls. There's hand-dipped ice cream, candy and milk shakes. Cohen says he also makes a pretty good hoagie. So what's Cohen going to do when Arby's, the national fast-food chain famous for roast beef sandwiches, starts making submarines - Arby's name for a Philadelphia-style hoagie.

About 86,400 hoagies from now, volunteers from Audubon Fire Company No. 1 will be able to kick off their shoes, relax in the new addition to their fire hall and proclaim, "We did it. " Unlike fire companies that depend on municipal budgets for capital improvements, the Audubon firefighters are paying for a two-bay addition to the cramped Merchant Street firehouse by themselves - using hoagie power. On one Saturday each month for the last 16 months, they have been selling hoagies at a 1,600-a-day clip to borough residents.

IT WAS Arnaldo Cardona's first time at Wawa's Annual Hoagie Day celebration yesterday, and though he was dressed in a black T-shirt and dripped sweat, he didn't let the 93-degree weather spoil his mood. While others held umbrellas to shield themselves from the sun and fanned themselves with maps from the National Constitution Center, Cardona shimmied his shoulders and moved his feet to Michael Jackson's "P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)" blasting over the speakers to the crowd. "I'm hoping there's going to be a nice, big sandwich for me," said Cardona, 28, of North Philly.

WACO, Texas - He had a month's growth of facial hair, almost unrecognizable to anyone who knew him. When Shawn Oakman was called to Bill O'Brien's office at Penn State in March 2012, he was barely able to look up at his coach and his uncle. The highly touted recruit out of Penn Wood High was embarrassed. He was tossed from the Penn State football program for attempting to steal a $7 hoagie from a convenience store - the last straw in a host of incidents. Even then, there was some denial.

AN EMPHATIC cheer followed Mayor Nutter's proclamation declaring yesterday Hoagie Day in the city. "It's just wonderful to be able to say that," Nutter said while instructing the thousands in attendance to dig into the 4 1/2 tons of hoagies on hand. Wawa Hoagie Day served up free "shorti" Italian hoagies, drinks and chips from noon to 2 p.m. on Independence Mall as part of the Welcome America Festival, and to salute members of the military, fire and police. Included in the festivities, which is part of the weeklong festival, was the Hoagies for Heroes hoagie-building contest, in which the Police Department came out on top against the Fire Department, and the Pennsylvania Air National Guard bested the state's Army National Guard.

The owner of Primo Hoagie's franchising business will spend four months in prison for tax evasion, a Camden federal judge ruled Friday. In a plea bargain designed in part to avoid prosecution of his wife and save his son's house, Nicholas Papanier Sr., 57, of Sewell, admitted that he avoided paying taxes totaling $189,656 in 2006, 2007, and 2008. Papanier, who also owned Nellie's Provisions in Gloucester City, often received cash payments from Primo Hoagie's franchisees when they bought salami, provolone, and other deli items from him. Over three years, he made more than a million dollars, but paid taxes on only about half of it, according to court documents.

Nicholas Papanier, 57, owner of PrimoHoagies Franchising Inc., was in federal court in Camden two weeks ago, pleading guilty to tax evasion stemming from taxes he owed on hoagie shop operators' cash payments to him for salami, ham, and other deli ingredients. This week, his company was back in Camden's federal courthouse, having filed a lawsuit against one of its shop operators. The suit, filed Tuesday, says Jay Venito of Mount Laurel agreed in January 2011 to run a PrimoHoagie store on Route 38 in Lumberton.
