he Ithaca Police Department has applied for a grant to fund three crisis intervention specialists that will work closely with IPD, according to the City of Ithaca’s acting Chief of Police, John Joly. During the most recent meeting of the Common Council's Reimagining Public Safety special committee, Joly described the funding request and other steps being taken by the Police Department to meet the goals established in the reimagining public safety plan. Joly said that the number one recommendation the city has made to IPD is to “evaluate discrete alternatives to law enforcement response for crisis intervention in wraparound health and human service delivery.” According to Joly, the idea behind bringing three crisis intervention specialists on board is that it will decrease the workload for armed officers that don’t necessarily need to respond to a mental health crisis and allow them to be better trained when they do have to deal with a mental health situation. Joly told the committee, “We are officers dispatched to a call, and if it turns out it’s really not criminal, but maybe a mental health situation, a crisis intervention specialist would be better trained.” He continued saying, “then we could relieve the officers from that call and they can go on to other criminal complaints.” IPD should find out whether or not they will receive any of the funding that they applied for by January. Joly noted that Tompkins County is working on adding three crisis intervention specialists to the Health Department. These specialists will be paired directly

with law enforcement — two will be assigned to the County and there will be two Sheriff ’s deputies that work directly with those crisis intervention specialists — and one will be assigned to the City to work directly with IPD. According to Joly, “due to our staffing and the constraints in our collective bargaining agreement, we can't assign a single officer to work directly with that crisis manager specialist.” However, he continued saying that IPD has a plan to put together “a group of four or so officers that are trained in crisis intervention, critical incident negotiation, or something similar and we'll pair those four with that crisis management specialist.” Based on IPD’s availability, one of that group will work closely with this crisis manager specialist. “There's still more work to be done. But that is what's in process right now,” said Joly.

T A K E  Dragon Day Gets Noticed — Cornell’s Dragon Day, in which architecture students battle engineering students, ostensibly by proxy, using giant dragon and phoenix sculptures was named the most unusual U.S. college tradition by InterestingFacts.com. The website tells the tale of how it began in 1901 and eventually evolved into a scuffle after which the dragon was burned to a crisp. Scuffle is a very polite word for what used to transpire on the Arts Quad.

DA Van Houten said a reimagining goals is to increase the confidence marginalized parts of the community have in the justice system. (Photo: Provided)

Joly told the Reimagining Committee that the IPD currently has 52 officers on staff, though several are on light duty due to injuries and medical restrictions. There is a retirement anticipated and a new hire that will be graduating the Police Academy in October. The Acting Chief then offered updates on the Department’s work on the list of recommendations that were part of the City’s Reimagining Plan. Joly noted that more than 1,000 hours were spent last year on cultural competency training, including de-escalation, anti-bias, ethics, addressing the homeless population, and community policing. He said that the IPD and Community Justice Center have been working together on coordinating meetings throughout the community between officers and citizens.

ecounting the obstacles she faced when a student, Ithaca College’s new president, La Jerne Terry Cornish, advised students and the IC community of the importance of persistence. “Losing my mother on the first day of finals freshman year was something that knocked me down,” President Cornish said. “My GPA suffered. As a result of that, I had to work really hard to get back up. I’ve encountered hard things, yet and still I persisted. What I want my students to know is you’re going to experience ups and downs, but you have to keep going.” Cornish was speaking at a September 14 webinar which began what is being called her Ithaca Together Inaugural Tour during which she will discuss her commitments to the IC community including her goals to connect with Ithaca alumni and friends across the country. Cornish said that the tour is a way to provide Ithaca alumni and friends with a way to connect with each other in their own communities. “So it’s perhaps fitting that this first tour engagement takes place in a virtual setting,” she added; “one that enables us to connect in solidarity wherever we are in the world.” “I want to hear your stories,” Cornish said. “I want to develop relationships. I want to know what Ithaca College did for you. I want to know how the experience you had on this campus changed your life and changed the life of someone else.” Cornish emphasized her excitement for this fall semester because it is the first semester since the COVID-19 pandemic where all classes offered are completely inperson. “This one truly feels like a new beginning,” she said. According to Cornish, more than 1,400 new students have been enrolled in IC this fall. She noted that IC has launched a successful graduate physician assistant program aimed for students to enhance skills that are in a high demand and provide expertise. Noting the continuing specter of COVID-19, Cornish acknowledged that the campus on South Hill is still not completely back to normal. She admitted it will take years to restore the campus’ position as “a world-class comprehensive college.” “Three to five to restore, three to five to soar, and I’m betting that we’re going to soar in six or before,” she added.

Cornish assured the IC community that she is dedicated to the institution for the long-game, but she can only do this if everyone in the IC community comes together. “Our ability to move forward as a college is directly bound to our ability to move forward as a community,” she explained. Cornish asked the IC community to share campus news on their social media and wear IC apparel in their local communities to help raise IC’s profile.

COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS

Her Majesty: A Pretty Nice Girl By C h a r l ey G i t h l e r

I

t’s been quite a two weeks since the last column. For one thing, the Queen of England died, which apparently came as a shock to a lot of people. The words “died unexpectedly” don’t often figure into the obituaries of people who pass away at age 96, but whatever. Some of my more democratic-minded friends have ruminated on the fact that she was a world figure only because of the family into which she was born. She won (I guess) the accidentof-birth lottery. All of which is true, but she handled it well and carried off being a figurehead with aplomb and seemliness for a really long time. I can’t manage aplomb for more than a couple hours, and she did it from when Harry Truman was president until last week. Also since the last column, I was jolted out of my everyday reverie by a television commercial for a product called the Ballsy B2 Ball Trimmer. It’s what it sounds like, and it’s a real commercial on real television. “Here at Ballsy, we know how hard it is to trim your balls.” I’m afraid that is a direct quote. The spokesperson holds nothing back as she carries on about the product’s many features in details that would make Dirk Diggler blush and signs

off by declaring that “here at Ballsy, we know balls.” I’ve long since surrendered to the reality that advertising copywriters are trying to kill us, but are there literally no lines left? Is there nothing that is beyond the bounds of good taste? I’m really not an excessively modest person. I just want to live in a world where the condition of one’s testicles remains the exclusive province of one’s self, one’s partner, and Dr. Vohra. My point is that as long as Queen Elizabeth II was alive, I knew that there was at least one other person who would also be staring in transfixed horror at the TV if she were sitting in my living room. King Charles III, even as big a stiff as he is, is not that person. It wasn’t that long ago (1989, to be exact) that we were all treated to a recording of a telephone conversation in which His Majesty the King expressed a fervent desire to be one of Her Majesty the Queen Consort Camilla’s tampons. There’s no forgetting that, Sire. And we need not go into sordid detail about his brother Prince Andrew, now Keeper of the Royal Corgis. Sure, the monarchy is an antiquated institution, thoroughly steeped in a history

Becoming at dancer at age 40 has been renewing for Lucia Sciore. (Photo: Provided)

Lucia Sciore: Dancing Through the Years By M a rjor i e O l d s

L

ucia Sciore loved music all her life and in 1990 she became a dancer at age 40. Here’s her story in her own words: “Enjoying the Ithaca Festival, I watched Maurice Haltom’s African Dance group performing. I was drawn by the music, the rhythm, the drumming and I signed up for dance classes right away. “Two or three times a week I attended Maurice’s classes. First, we met in the “Taj” on State Street, moving next to the City Health Club. I loved the way Maurice taught the classes. In addition to African Dance, I took Qi Gong classes whenever I could. Over time, I also studied and danced at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY. “As time went on the heavy pounding beat and steps of African Dance were causing knee pain. “When I watched Katharyn Machal Howd’s Mirage belly dance group perform, I was ready to broaden my horizons. I took Zajal’s (Katharyn’s dance persona) Egyptian style belly dance classes at Community School of Music and Art, as well as Tessa’s tribal style belly dancing in the Fingerlakes Health Club. Alicia, another belly dancer, along with Tessa, hosted Dance Events at the old Lot 10. Now I go once a week to Mirage sessions at the Foundation of Light. “Over the years I’ve performed with belly dancers in many Ithaca Festival

Parades and performances, also at the Library, at Longview, and at nursing homes in the area. This June we performed at the delightful, rural, laid-back Faerie Festival, east of Binghamton. I enjoyed all the classes, festival and performances and I learned something from everyone I encountered. “Good dance teachers push us to work harder. Even non-dancers can be taught to listen to the music and learn the rhythms for dance. In 2015 I toured Cuba with a Cornell travel group and danced with a Cuban dance partner. We visited the famous Bueno Vista Social Club and watched the only living member of the original Club perform. Dance is truly a universal language. “Dancing and walking and exercising are part of my routine. When I was surviving the loss of my husband, I realized how crucial having a routine is. In retirement, I work three days a week at a job I love at the ReUse Center. The other four days of the week I meet friends for a walk or weightlifting or I walk alone. “Dance and exercise can be anything you want to do. Walking can be a kind of dance. Movement of all types is renewing,” “When I look back and think about my family, my career, my life in Ithaca, I am very grateful to be able to enjoy this time in my life. I feel blessed after lots of struggles to have these opportunities. I’m glad to still be dancing and savoring my life now, just as it is.”


SPORTS

BVC Is Being Too Generous

Paddle Battle By St ev e L aw r e nc e

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

I

was talking to a friend about a sports rivalry that is really gaining some traction, and he said, “Yankees/Red Sox?” I replied, “No, the Sox suck. That rivalry’s going backward.” He scratched his head... “Cortaca Jug? That’s not until November.” I explained that I was talking about “the Battle for the Paddle,” the golf rivalry—now in its 6th year—in which teams assembled by the Fall Creek House and the Glenwood Pines square off to claim (temporary) ownership of the prized Paddle. Cory Hohwald—the Pines’ owner—has had bragging rights three times thus far, while Frank Welch of the “Creeker” has had the paddle twice—has it currently—and hopes to even the score and hold onto it on September 25th. According to Mike Addicott, the Club Manager at Newman Golf Course, “The majority of the competitors call Newman or the Trumansburg Golf Course ‘home,’ and the tournament alternates locations each fall.” Joe Ciaschi (Newman’s “unofficial PR guy”) piped in, “We have fourteen 2-person teams, they compete in a Match Play format, and it’s a really fun group of guys that sometimes don’t see each other for another year.” That said, Addicott added, “It’s a friendly rivalry between a group of golfers that have, for the most part, known each other forever.” Joe—carrying the Paddle around like a mob boss protecting a bag of loot—said, “These guys will take it seriously. You want to win eight of those fourteen pairings.” Asked to share some highlights, Mike recalled, “In 2020, Greg Weatherby had a hole-in-one on #3 at T-Burg. That was a highlight for sure.” Mike added, “It’s growing in popularity. It started out as a joke, and everybody really looks forward to it.” Joe added, “Like the Cortaca Jug.” Okay...the Cortaca Jug now draws over 40,000 people and will be played in Yankee Stadium this year, but the Battle for the Paddle just might be catching up in popularity. I saw the way Ciaschi was holding that paddle. I’m not arguing with him... ● ● ●

ing away with a 28-22 win is a great way to open the season. If a Defensive Coordinator writes a script he would like to see come to fruition, he dictates that his troops force a three-and-out to give his offense the ball. An Offensive Coordinator’s scripts says that the QB converts on big third downs, and as requested, sophomore signal caller Jameson Wang did so three times before connecting with senior William Enneking to put the visitors on the board. While Enneking made the most of his first two career receptions—scoring touchdowns on both catches—another senior picked up where he left off. Linebacker Jake Stebbins put eight tackles in the stat book, and also came up with a highlight film fumble recovery. After Max Lundeen overpowered his opponent to get to the quarterback, perfectly timed his swipe at the ball, and caused the QB to lose the ball, Stebbins alertly pounced on it, completing the kind of big play that puts a lot of wind in a team’s sail. In summary, Cornell started strong, never let up, and I love seeing the Big Red start on such a high note. I unabashedly love the energy, passion and loyalty that Head Coach Dave Archer brings to his alma mater and I would love to see him lead the program for another 20 years. ● ● ●

Future Lawyers Pruning Privet

O

n Friday, August 19, more than a dozen Cornell U. first-year Law Students joined with Trees Up Tompkins (TUT) to remove extensive portions of invasive privet and to create open spaces for future tree planting near the inlet of Cayuga Lake at Lighthouse Point. For an entire morning, this cohort of students lent their hearts and hands unreservedly to backbreaking tasks in humid, late Summer weather. These gifted young adults turned an orientation into sustainable service, as they immersed themselves in preparing land for an upcoming Fall Tree Planting. We are immensely grateful for their spirited presence among us and we commend CU for arranging their placement with us.

hether one likes or dislikes a film is very subjective. It’s obvious you are a huge Miller fan and it is pretty amazing that he has such range. But your generous appraisal of 3000 Years of Longing ignores some pretty basic principles of cinema—show, don’t tell. The film was beautifully shot, designed, and acted—what’s not to love about Tilda Swinton and Idris Elba? But the insistent voice-over narration of scenes from Jin’s past came across like extravagant pantomimes. There were moments of poignant connection between Tilda and Idris that almost were worth the price of the ticket. Almost. I am a cinephile and believe in the power of collective film watching. But this is one where I could just have easily enjoyed those few moments at home. Amala Lane

More Iconic Ithaca Concerts

here were sooo many iconic shows at Barton Hall! How could anyone forget Blue Oyster Cult, Boston (my personal favorite), Pat Benatar. And Bailey Hall hosted an AMAZING trio of blues masters George Strait (my memory is failing me on this first one), BB King, and Steve Vaughn, all in the same year. I was lucky enough to see 2 of the 3. As for the WORST band to play Barton I would say it was The Pretenders. A lot of people walked out and went down to the Arcade Nightclub and when the show was over the band themselves came down and the doorman, having heard how bad the show was, wanted to charge them cover. Of course they were upset and wouldn’t pay and eventually just left. Not a good night for them. suepr3

oceans will rise two feet by March. (I’m going somewhere with this.) That’s the kind of news we’re treated to these days. There are ads for ball trimmers on television. More Americans can identify an image of Kim Kardashian than one of Ben Franklin. And then there was Elizabeth II, who promised 75 years ago on her 21st birthday, “I declare before you all that my whole life whether it be long or short shall be devoted to your service,” and never once broke that promise. She lived her life for other people, according to her own lights, and that made her an island of integrity and grace in the rising sea of horrors that is today’s world. I’m going to miss having her around.

BACK IN THE SADDLE?

Dock-less Bike Sharing May Be Coming Back By M att Dougherty

F

or two years Lime Bikes were ubiquitous in the City of Ithaca. But that doesn’t mean they were universally loved. And while many regret their departure, others don’t miss the side effects of the program. Back in 2018 the City of Ithaca, Bike Walk Tompkins and the Center for Community Transportation (CCT) partnered with a company called Lime Bike to bring a dock-less bike-sharing program to Ithaca. However, in March 2020 the company decided to end its operations in the city and pull all their bikes off the streets—citing a decrease in revenue and safety restrictions imposed during the COVID-19 pandemic. There were hints, however, that the company left because of objections to expanding its program to include more powerful rentable scooters. Although many residents were appreciative of increased accessibility to a more environmentally friendly means of transportation, the city ran into problems with Lime’s dock-less bikeshare protocol. In a dock-less program there are no centralized locations for bikes to be picked up or left off. Instead, riders find an unused bike, rent it, and then leave it wherever they choose when they’re done. At City meetings residents and business owners would regularly voice complaints about bikes being irresponsibly scattered around causing increased congestion on sidewalks. Despite the issues with the Lime program, there was almost universal support for the idea of bike sharing as a way to encourage a more environmentally friendly and healthy means of transportation in the city.

According to CCT Executive Director Jennifer Dotson, when Lime shut down operations in Ithaca in March of 2020, the company left the city with the knowledge and infrastructure in place to create its own local bikeshare service, one with the goal of sustainability, not profitability. “It's really typical for large corporations to pull out of a small market where there isn't a lot of money to be made. They're not going to stick around.” The implication is that a lower pressure for profitability will mean that more resources can be devoted to ensuring that inactive bikes don’t become an eyesore and sidewalk hazard. Dotson continued saying that while “we're not interested in making a huge profit, we're interested in paying our staff really healthy wages because they do good work. And the entire team is very valued.” said Dotson. Recently, as part of a collaborative search process that involved the City of Ithaca and other community stakeholders, the CCT announced that Jeff Goodmark will be serving as the CCT Director of Micromobility. Goodmark was General Manager of Collegetown Bagels and was previously the Operations Manager for Lime. According to the CCT, he is charged with leading the launch of a new communityrun e-bikeshare program for the city. Regarding his past experience with Lime, Goodmark said, “Launching a micro-mobility program in Ithaca was a valuable and rewarding experience.” He continued saying, “As part of the CCT team, I am excited to partner with the city and other community stakeholders in launching a new e-bikeshare program enabling local control and long-term sustainability.”

( P h o t o : M at t D o u g h e r t y) Acting Mayor Laura Lewis expressed her support for the selection of Goodmark saying, “I’m pleased to hear of Jeff ’s selection as Director of Micro-Mobility at CCT. He brings a tremendous depth of experience and commitment. I look forward to our work together in the future.” According to CCT Executive Director Jennifer Dotson, “Jeff brings a wide range of experience in micro mobility.” She continued saying, “We worked with him when he was managing the Lime fleet locally and got to know his responsiveness and dedica-

tion. We are confident that under his leadership, Ithaca’s bikeshare will be extremely successful.” Dotson recently told The Ithaca Times that “we have been planning for a spring launch, but there is the possibility we may be able to put things together to have some bikes on the streets this fall.” If it’s fully implemented Ithaca Bikeshare will have a fleet of roughly 300 to 400 DROP electric pedal assist bikes. However, due to supply chain issues and financial constraints of nonprofits


the program is expected to launch with around 100 bikes. Dost Bikes, the company that produces the DROP e-bike says, “The DROP has a traditional drivetrain that uses the SRAM X5 derailleur to change gears and KMC roller chain to transmit power to the rear wheel. This tried and tested design boasts the lightest weight and highest energy efficiency of any design, translating into longer range for those looking to squeeze every last mile from their e-bike.” The Dost Bikes website lists the cost of one DROP ebike at $3,199. According to Dotson, the industry is really focused on electric pedal assist bikes. “We’re not talking about like the really, really Zippy ones that you see going 25 miles an hour. What we're talking about is something that when you pedal, it gives you a little boost,” said Dotson. While exact prices remain unknown, Dotson says that residents will probably be able to rent a bike using an app on their phone for “between $1.50 and $3 depending on the ride length.” She continued saying, “there’s a fee to unlock and then some number of cents per minute.” In addition, there will be an affordable option to give more people the ability to participate. Dotson said that there will “almost certainly be an extremely low cost if not free option for something like a monthly pass.” According to Dotson, this more affordable option will likely resemble the Ithaca Carshare Easy Access program. Membership of the Easy Access program pay a $10 per month fee in exchange for a $15 per month driving credit that can be used for hourly and mileage rates. Unused monthly credits rollover for up to 6 months. The DROP bikes can be charged with the battery in place, or the battery can be removed to be charged externally. Since CCT is anticipating having hundreds of bikes, they’re planning on having a large reserve of charged batteries that their staff would use to replace depleted bike batteries. According to Dotson, CCT employees will be changing the batteries whenever necessary and putting the bikes back on the street. Dotson recently said that CCT is “working with the City on an agreement to allow to proposed program to operate on city streets.” She continued saying, “We don't want to put bikes out before we have an agreement with the City, so we really want to work with the Common Council to make sure that's actually happening and I’m hoping that we can do that very quickly.” CCT is also in conversations with Cornell about whether or not the university is going to authorize the planned bike share program to operate on campus. However, Dotson recently said, “we're not sure it's exactly going to happen there.”

Federal Grant To Help Connect 2 Ithaca Bike Paths

I

thaca cyclists, whether riding their own bicycle or using a sharing bike from a new program, will soon find it easier to safely ride through the City. Amongst the provisions of President Joe Biden’s $1.2 trillion Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is billions in funding for the Transportation Alternatives Program, which supports projects for small-scale transportation like beefing up local bicycle facilities and funding the construction of accompanying trails. In Ithaca, $2.2 million has been dedicated towards connecting the Black Diamond Trail and the Gateway Trail, two major bike paths on opposite sides of Ithaca. The Black Diamond Trail is an 8.5mile trail that connects Taughannock Park with Ithaca, allowing people in Trumansburg to commute via bike. The Gateway Trail runs from the South Hill Recreation Way to the parking lot of Home Depot on Route 13, where it will likely connect to the Black Diamond Trail. When completed, the Dryden Rail trail will be a 14-mile trail that connects Dryden and Ithaca. Currently, the trail is being completed after U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand secured $700,000 in federal funding to cover extra budget expenses. Nicole Friske is the associate director of Bike Walk Tompkins, a non-profit

organization in Ithaca that advocates for the expansion of bicycling accessibility in the county. Friske said that while many use the bike trails in the county for the purpose of exercise and leisure, many also use it as a transportation path to get into Ithaca from surrounding towns. “When we’re talking to the local businesses, to the schools and to people who are biking, we hear tons of stories of people using the Dryden Rail Trail and the Black Diamond Trail for commuting,” Friske said. While the Ithaca area has miles of bikefriendly trails and paths that are used for exercise and leisure, accessibility of biking as a mode of transportation is still limited. Currently, there are only two streets in the City of Ithaca that have two-way bike lanes: Elmira Road and North Cayuga Street. While some streets have one-way bike lanes or have been optimized to accommodate bicyclists, much of the city’s streets have no bike infrastructure. In addition to overseeing the federal grant, Bike Walk Tompkins has introduced a proposal to the city government called the “Better Bike Network.” The proposal calls for two networks of new bike paths—an “Ithaca’s Flats” network and an “East Hill” network—that would add bike lanes to key streets in both downtown Ithaca and on East Hill.

The paths would connect together areas of the city with large commercial activity. The additional lanes would improve safety, not just connectivity. In Ithaca, there have been notable bicycle accidents that have occurred in intersections with heavy traffic. Additionally, the uneven roads and high amount of potholes can make biking a risk. A study from 2019 by University of Colorado Denver found that American cities that invest in building bicycle infrastructure have significantly lower rates of cyclist fatalities. Armin Heurich is the former president of the Finger Lakes Cycling Club, a group that coordinates group rides and advocates for bike safety. In 2017, Heurich’s daughter survived an accident while riding her bicycle on Albany Street after a motorist ran a red light. Since traveling to cities in Europe and seeing their bike infrastructure, Heurich has been supportive of more robust street infrastructure to increase road safety for cyclists. “If you’re a young cyclist it can be very challenging and dangerous,” Heurich said. “I think a lot of parents don't want their kids to ride on the streets without them being present. Sometimes I feel like there's a profound lack of imagination or lack of creative thinking about how we can do these things right.” Friske said they believe that by improving the streets of Ithaca for biking, potential new bikers will then feel safer to begin biking through Ithaca. “I imagine that through all of these necessary changes in infrastructure, anyone can make a choice to safely use a bicycle to get to where they need in Tompkins County,” Friske said. “That's what I envision.” — Elijah de Castro

Apple Harvest Fest Preview 2022 By Ly nd se y Honor

T

he Apple Harvest Festival—returning Friday, September 30 through Sunday, October 2—is celebrating 40 years. As always, it will take over the streets of Ithaca, closing down roads to make room for delectable food, timeless memories, and endless fun. Coinciding with New York Cider Week, Apple Fest will bring farmers, cider makers, and the community together to share quality apple products and ciders—both alcoholic and nonalcoholic cider options will be accommodated. Beyond the apple theme, downtown Ithaca looks forward to welcoming more than 50 artisans from around the region. Whether you’re interested in photography, spirituality, fashion, art, jewelry, soaps, or crafts, there’s certainly something for you. These shops will line the streets, attracting passersby from every direction. Walk along the roads void of cars with a seasonal treat in hand, allowing yourself to wander into any vibrant tent demanding your attention.

No matter what, you’ll get lost in the excitement in the best way possible. As you’re looking ahead to plan for the festival, here’s what you need to know.

Street Closings and Parking

Because Apple Fest is hosted downtown, there will be many street closures throughout the weekend. Check the event map for details. Signage along the streets will also be available to detour and direct traffic. There are a few different parking options for this event. There will be limited on-street parking, which is $1.50 per hour until 6 p.m. during the week and free on weekends—just be aware that you might be forced to park far away from the event because of street closures. You can also park in the Seneca, Green, or Cayuga Street garages. These are convenient because of their close proximity to the festival, but they fill up fast, so plan accordingly. On Friday, parking in the garages will cost $1 per hour; it’ll be free during the rest of the weekend. Avoid parking altogether by riding the TCAT or your bike. Buses run

through the downtown area all-day, giving you plenty of opportunities to catch a ride to and from the festival. You can find bus schedules on the 2022 Ride Guide, https://tcatbus.com/ride/ current-ride-guide/. If you decide to cycle downtown, there are art bike racks everywhere. Just look for one of these uniquely designed structures along your path.

Food and Drink Options

More than 20 local farmers will be selling a variety of apples, cider, maple products, and other seasonal goodies. Among these are Schweigarts Sugar Shack, Schoolyard Sugarbush, Maple River Sugar Company, and MacDonald Farms. Littletree Orchards is set to return with their famous cider donuts. An additional 20 or more vendors will be available, including stands selling lemonade, kettle corn, tacos, and barbeque. There will be conventional amusement treats as well, such as funnel cake, fried dough, and corn dogs— some offering seasonal flavor options. Contin u ed on Page 13

Vending Apples For Almost 70 Years M By Juli a Nage l

ost vending machines sell chips, candy or drinks. But in the main lobby of Cornell’s Mann Library, there’s a vending machine stocked solely with apples. For just a dollar, students, faculty and visitors can sink their teeth into one of these refreshing, juicy apples, which are grown at the nearby Cornell Orchards. “The apples are all from the orchards in Ithaca. So they are about as local as you can get, considering that they're [grown] less than a mile away from the machine itself,” said Andrew Scheldorf, a Cornell grad student and a former Society for Horticulture (SoHo) president. All proceeds from the machine go to SoHo, an organization for and by Cornell graduate students in horticulture. SoHo members take on the task of picking the apples as well as stocking and maintaining the vending machine. The vending machine is stocked with at least a couple and as many as nine different apple varieties throughout most of the aca-

demic year, though the timing varies slightly based on when the apple harvest starts. “It's stocked when apples start getting harvested. So depending on what cultivars are available that year, we might be able to stock it when the students return at the end of August, but definitely as it goes into September,” Scheldorf explained. Oftentimes, the machine holds wellknown apple varieties—Honeycrisp, Gala or McIntosh—in addition to newer varieties developed by Cornell’s apple breeding program like SnapDragon or Firecracker. “We had Snapdragon in there last fall at some point, and that's a really popular one that was definitely selling out very quickly, so that had to be restocked often,” Brittany Cook said. Cook was the SoHo treasurer last year and is currently the webmaster. The machine itself is quite high-tech; the apples sit in individual compartments so that on the off chance an apple rots, it won’t spoil the whole bunch. The machine also has a built-in refrigeration system. “It's refrigerated which is really awesome because the apples last longer…. When you want to buy an Apple, it just

opens up the entire slot. It doesn't fall out to the bottom, which is nice so it avoids bruising,” said Brittney Chew of SoHo. Cornell’s apple vending machine has an extensive history, which can be traced back to the mid-1950s. An October 1954 copy of the Cornell Countryman magazine stated that “Even fruit vending has gone modern! The old wooden box which used to hold apples for sale on the honor system, (in the lobby of Plant Science) has been replaced by this ultramodern machine.” There has been an apple vending machine at Cornell since 1954.

nybody wishing to familiarize themselves with the local exhibitions scene would do well to attend downtown Ithaca’s monthly Gallery Night, held on the first Friday of every month (from 5 to 8 p.m.). For anybody with a different schedule or anybody looking for a less social setting, a self-guided tour will also do. Most galleries rotate shows every month or two and it is possible to see everything important in town. Several longer-term and upcoming shows and events are worthy of particular notice. (Almost all are free of charge.) Among independent local venues, Corners Gallery (cornersgallery.com) in Cayuga Heights consistently has one of the most interesting and diverse programs. Ariel Bullion Ecklund, who owns and directs the frame shop and display space, is professional and ambitious in all her work. Derived from life drawings, “Figurative” (September 10-October 28), a show of paintings by veteran local abstractionist Michael Sampson, is characteristic of the searching work presented at Corners. Next up is “Quartet” (November 5-December 30), featuring the work of Ithaca College-associated artists Susan Weisend, Carla Stetson, Minna Resnick, and Lin Price. All are known for their eclectic approaches to style, media, and/or technique. Ecklund is an artist herself, working in ceramics and photography. She will be showing next month (October 1-October 23) with local abstract painter Domenica Brockman at The Gallery at South Hill, inside the South Hill Business Campus (southhillbusinesscampus.com). Owned and run by Wendy Gherity, the new Mix Gallery (mixartgallery.com) on the Commons appears to still be finding its footing. With “Non-Zero-Sum,” an exhibition by abstract painter Jeffrey Hansen of Saint Paul, Minnesota up for most of the summer, the future of the walk-up gallery has seemed unclear. Recently announced, their October show “Duality” will feature painter Joy Adams, of

Trumansburg, and sculptor Jason Griego. I can’t speak here to Griego’s work, which I have yet to see in person. Adams, however, is a superb artist—bending “old master” styles and motifs in a way that is playful and distinctly contemporary. Both artists will also be showing at Mix in the future. Cornell University holds an overwhelming number of exhibitions and events: most notably at the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art (museum.cornell.edu) and in galleries run by the College of Architecture, Art, and Planning (aap.cornell.edu). One lower profile event deserves special notice. Julianne Hunter, a visiting critic at the AAP college, is reprising her exhibition from last fall at the Ink Shop Printmaking Center downtown, where she was the 2021-2022 Kahn Family Fellow. The show takes place in the Experimental Gallery in Olive Tjaden Hall and runs through this Friday (September 19-23). As they have done since 1973—with an intermission during the depths of the COVID-19 pandemic—the Johnson hosts several concurrent exhibitions, open to the general public. (Admission is free.)

FALL CROWDED WITH NOTEWORTHY GALLERY SHOWS

Sadly, the museum’s calendar of special events has yet to make a full recovery. Of particular note is their upcoming annual Stoikov Lecture, to be held on September 29, starting at 5:15 p.m. Curator and art historian Navina Haidar, head of the Department of Islamic Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, will be presenting on the “new” Islamic galleries there—which she helped to establish. The lecture will be accessible online as well as at the museum. The Cornell Council for the Arts (cca.cornell.edu) is hosting their 2022 Biennial on the characteristically lofty theme of “Futurities, Uncertain.” Curated by council director Timothy Murray, and running from July through December, the extravaganza includes forty artists, showing at both the Ithaca campus and at Cornell Tech in New York City. The sprawled displays will appeal most to devotees of the “radical” and the outlandish— others may find some of the work perplexing. I was struck by an installation by Canadian artist Sara Jimenez, “At what point does the world unfold?” (September 15-October 27). Bright pink, elaborately textured suspended fabrics currently fill the university’s Arts Quad. The manifest beauty of the piece carries a subtext of political critique—nearly obligatory in contemporary academic art. In connection with the goings-on on campus, The Cherry Arts theatre (thecherry.org) is hosting an in-town group exhibit, “Local Futurities” (September 23-October 30), in their new Cherry Gallery. A reception will be held this Friday evening (5-8pm). Look out for the work of sculptor Grace Sachi Troxell, a recent Cornell M.F.A. graduate. Folks interested in literature as well as the visual arts—and a broader geographic perspective—would do well to attend open house events at the Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts (saltonstall.org). Founded in 1995, the foundation hosts juried residencies for New York State artists on the beautiful Ellis Hollow property of the late artist and activist Constance Saltonstall. Upcoming open houses at Saltonstall will take place on October 9 (from 2-4pm) and 27 (5:30-7:30pm). The Syracuse University Museum of Art (museum.syr.edu), an important regional venue, is hosting “Anni Albers: Work With Materials” this fall (August 25-December 11). Featuring textiles and prints by the great German-Jewish Bauhaus artist, the show includes “over 100 objects from the collection of the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation.” Another regional show will be of particular interest to Ithacans. Mary Shelley’s folk-style painted wood reliefs have long been a memorable part of the local culture. She is having a solo exhibition at the Fenimore Museum (adults $10, children free) in Cooperstown (fenimoreartmusem.org). Opening this week, “Mary Michael Shelley: Art of the Everyday” will run through the end of the year (September 21-December 31).

or years I just drove past Spicy Asian restaurant on Meadow Street because I was put off by the name. I don’t go out of my way for spicy food and I assumed “Asian” meant pan-Asian to include Korean, Japanese, Chinese, and Thai. Since there are other alternatives in Ithaca that aren’t necessarily spicy, I was never tempted to eat at Spicy Asian. So, when my editor included it on a list of assignments, I wasn’t thrilled. But Spicy Asian offers exclusively Chinese fare that, despite its name, is not exclusively spicy.

If West’s “X” is a thoughtful, funny and accurate homage to Tobe Hooper’s 1974 classic “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”, the prequel “Pearl” is even riskier and more stylized, a study of a burgeoning psychopath shot in 50’s Technicolor, the Douglas Sirk version of “Carrie” (1976). In “X”, Mia Goth played two roles, a wannabe porn starlet, and a decrepit EC Comics horror hag out to get the filmmakers; Goth was unrecognizable under extensive prosthetics, and I for one didn’t figure out the gag until the end credits. “Pearl” takes the hag character back in time to the previous pandemic in 1919, where Pearl (Goth) has married a soldier currently overseas fighting in WWI. Pearl dances around the family barn, dreaming of movie roles and stardom so she can escape her small town, her domineering mother (Tandi Wright) and her paralyzed father (Matthew Sunderland). “Pearl”, which Goth and West cooked up as an idea while shooting “X”, is structured like a classic “I wanna be a star” melodrama, except that from the very beginning we see hints and glimpses that underneath Pearl’s go-get-‘em facade is a woman that doesn’t care about anyone but herself, to a psychotic degree. She kills a goose with a pitchfork in the opening scene, and she knows where the alligators like to gather at the lake…. Part horror movie, part diseased character study, “Pearl” doesn’t feel like anything else on the shelf.

Ti West’s “Pearl” (A24—Little Lamb, 2022, 102 min.) is a prequel to this year’s “X”, shot back-to-back in New Zealand during COVID lockdown. If you haven’t seen “X” which follows a band of people in Texas circa 1979 that drive to an isolated cabin in the woods to make a porno film, spoilers lie ahead that you might not want.

t won’t offend me one bit if you skip my review of writer-director Zach Cregger’s “Barbarian” (20th Century Studio—Regency Enterprises—New Regency—Almost Never Films—Hammerstone Studios—Vertical Entertainment—Boulderlight Pictures, 2022, 107 min.), as long as you see it. The best way to experience the film is the way I experienced it: knowing as little about the story as possible. Well, I knew Justin Long was in the picture, and I’ve been a big fan since 1999’s “Galaxy Quest”. I can confirm that Justin Long is in “Barbarian” but no way am I going to spoil how he’s in “Barbarian”. No beating around the bush: the only lame aspect of the film is its generic title. Like Kevin Smith’s 2010 “Red State”, “Barbarian”’s twisty plot just gets twistier as its perspective keeps shifting and changing. I really can’t remember the last time a movie had me so unbalanced and uneasy from start to finish. On a dark and stormy night, Georgina Campbell plays a young woman who has rented a rundown house on the outskirts of Detroit because she has a job interview the next day. She finds that a man played by Bill Skarsgard (Pennywise the Clown in the “It” films) has also rented the house. It turns out the house has a basement with a particularly nasty back room. And that’s as much as you’ll get from me regarding plot. Trust me: I haven’t scratched the surface, and you’ll thank me later. “Barbarian” has a truly diabolical story to tell. I hope Roger Corman appreciates that sixty-something years after he made his AIP cycle of Poe films, characters in horror movies are still creeping down dark, scary corridors. They may be lighting their ways with flashlights or cell phones, but it’s nice to see they’re still creeping.

brought in to help develop an inclusive recruiting strategy for law enforcement, Joly explained, adding that the IPD is working with the City’s Human Resources team and the Civil Service Board to see what revisions could be made to hiring procedures and policies that might eliminate potential obstacles for applicants. Finally, he noted that the department has held more than 20 community outreach events which have been very well received. Joly also reported on what appears to be a Catch-22 when it comes to recruiting. He noted that one of the elements that in the past made the Ithaca Police Department an attractive alternative to other law enforcement agencies in the area, was the extensive training it offered to officers, giving them opportunities to build their own career ladders. While stressing that he believes the IPD still provides the best training, he said that staffing shortages have forced training reductions. Those training reductions, in turn, may make it harder to recruit, leading to a problematic cycle. Tompkins County District Attorney Matthew Van Houten also met with the SPICY ASIAN contin u ed from page 16

In some Asian cooking, including Indian and Chinese, the bones of animals are crudely chopped with a cleaver and included with the meat. Consequently, some lamb and goat dishes, this one included, are served with all sizes of sharp-edged bones. The menu does state, in small print, there are skin and bones in the dish, however I feel compelled to emphasize it. All that being said, I finished all the tasty, thick sauce with the soup spoon that was provided. I enjoyed the dish and would recommend it to adults who like lamb. Another entrée I enjoyed was Sauteed Udon Noodles, ($12.95) which came with small bits of pork, four medium shrimp, and some vegetables. The balance of the menu is “Chinese Cuisine”. In that Section, under Chef ’s Specialties, I had a wonderful Seafood Delight ($19.95). The platter came with a few succulent shrimp, some tender, juicy scallops, a small half lobster tail, and some crab meat. All of these were surrounded by a hearty collection of veggies including carrot slices, broccoli, mushrooms, baby corn and pea pods. The carrots and broccoli were barely cooked,

special committee to provide some input on the reimagining process moving forward. He stated his belief that "the overall goal of this process was to address the systemic inequities in our criminal justice system," and to "increase the confidence that the community has in our justice system, especially the marginalized parts of our community." While noting that "we would love to decrease the number of arrests and increase the number of de-escalations," and that arrests are "the last resort," Van Houten said not all arrests are bad. "When there's somebody in the community who was victimized by crime, whether it's physical violence or violation of their home or their business or sexual offense or being affected by shots fired in your neighborhood," Van Houten continued, "those things have consequences to the rest of the community. And in those cases, when the safety of the community is at risk, the right thing to do is to arrest someone. And the right thing to do is to do it fairly, to do it competently, to do it professionally with as little violence as possible, with as little disruption to the community as possible. But we have to recognize that arrests are part of the world, and they always will be."

which could be a problem for some readers. But since these veggies are often served raw as part of a crudité mixture, I had no problem. Also in the Chef ’s Specialties section of the menu I ordered, and liked, Crispy Duck ($16.95). It was boneless so consequently I received about ten thick slices of beautifully seasoned duck with crunchy skin. This dish, too, came with lots of veggies—basically the same as came with the seafood dish—plus some chopped scallions and some thinly sliced mild onions. Everything was surrounded by a tasty brown sauce. It should be noted that neither of these dishes had any red pepper icons next to their listing and neither was the slightest bit spicy. Both were accompanied by a bowl of white rice. Tid Bits: If you want a knife or chop sticks, you’ll have to ask.
