WHAT TO DO? Look Inside

PAWN IN A POLITICAL GAME ? County defends health department reorganization, but have officials thought through the effects on the clients most in need? By Renée K. Gadoua. Page 19


ON THE RECORD

The annual Cruel April poetry series ends at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 24, with readings by Celia Caturelli (in Spanish with English TAKE translation) and John Colasacco. The event — at Point of Contact, 350 W. Fayette St. — is free and open to the public. A reception will follow.

We give a lot of thought here at the New Times to how we should approach the news. This week’s cover story is an example of the result.

Like all alt-weeklies, we’re pulled in several directions. We provide the best guide in town for people trying to decide what to do with their time and where to go on weekends. Irreverence and attitude are in our DNA. We want to entertain, and to make you laugh. But it’s also part of our mission to step up on serious issues. One of my first editors, a role model, often quoted the idea from, early 20th-century newspaper columnist Finley Peter Dunne, through his character Mr. Dooley, that the mission of a newspaper is to afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted. I take that mission seriously. We’re a weekly, so we cede breaking news to organizations that have a stronger online or broadcast presence. We have a small staff, so we shepherd our resources and pick our fights, and how to fight them. But changes in the local media landscape have, Photography by we think, put a premium Michael Davis, on thoughtful reporting that’s more Cover design by than a sound bite or a 400-word blog Caitlin O’Donnell post. Thoughtful reporting was always important journalism; now, as it grows more rare it grows more precious. The New Times tries to fill that need. Sometimes we succeed; sometimes we fall short. This week, I think, we nailed it. Onondaga County Health CommisWhat’s buzzing sioner Dr. Cynthia Morrow resigned the most. recently because of proposed changes that would affect programs that serve populations that are in need yet often invisible in this town. The difference of opinion between Morrow and the administration of County Executive Follow us Joanie Mahoney has been well @syracusenew reported elsewhere. times.com The New Times asked reporter Renée K. Gadoua to look past the mano a mano clash to examine how the changes might affect the people those programs were meant to help.

Easter, the most important holiday on the Christian calendar, may be the day that draws the most people to church. The worshipers above are at the Easter vigil at Our Lady of Pompei Church, 301 Ash St., Syracuse. A theme of the holiday is light out of darkness, symbolized by candle lighting in the dimmed church.

Lesson Unlearned. Police who stopped Michael Heller, 21, for stealing a truck in Redding, Calif., said he told them he TAKE needed it to make a court appearance for stealing another vehicle. (Redding Record Searchlight)

Curses, Foiled Again

Denver police arrested four burglary suspects who tried to sell stolen goods back to their victim. Lacinda Robinson, 24, said that after discovering the crime, she went to a nearby McDonald’s parking lot, where two young men offered her a PlayStation 3 video game similar to the one she lost. She declined, but when another youth approached her wearing a distinctive Washington Redskins jacket “that I believe belonged to me” she realized the men were selling her stuff. She reported the incident to two off-duty police. (Denver’s KMGH-TV)

When Christopher Poole, 26, learned that Nando’s fried chicken chain was offering a card guaranteeing chicken for life to anyone who ate at all its worldwide outlets, he embarked on an attempt to visit all 1,031 of them. “I love chicken and eat there a couple of nights a week anyway, so I decided to embrace the challenge,” Poole said. After spending $1,670 and gaining 14 pounds from visiting just the 85 outlets in the United Kingdom, Poole discovered that the competition ended two years ago. “There are now so many Nando’s worldwide that we don’t run the challenge anymore,” a Nando’s official said. He added that if Poole completes his attempt, “we will happily honor our original promise and give him free Nando’s for life.” Poole promptly announced he was heading for Australia, where Nando’s has nearly 300 outlets. (Britain’s Daily Mail)

Punctuation Follies

England’s Cambridge City Council voted to ban apostrophes from street names, insisting that the change will clarify addresses for emergency services. “It was decided potential confusion over incorrectly punctuated street names meant we wouldn’t use punctuation any more,” council officer Nick Milne explained, pointing out that the move follows guidelines prescribed by the National Land and Property Gazetteer, where all new street names are registered. “Our understanding was that many data users including the emergency services make no reference at all as to whether an apostrophe is used or not.” The council’s new policy affects only new street names and also bans street names that would be “difficult to pronounce or awkward to spell,” as well as names that “could give offense” or “encourage defacing of nameplates.” (Cambridge News)

THAT’S RICH

Surgeons in India removed 12 small bars of gold worth about $23,000 from the stomach of a man who claimed he was sick from swallowing a bottle cap.

Hard News

The federal government overpaid by $86.4 million to provide penis pumps to Medicare patients at twice the price private providers charge, according to the Health and Human Services Department’s inspector general. The IG report noted that the vacuum erection systems cost taxpayers nearly $175 million during the years 2006 to 2011 and that reducing the Medicare payment for the devices to the level of non-Medicare payers could save the federal government about $18 million a year. (The Washington Times)

Write About What You Know

Alaric Hunt, 44, won a $10,000 literary prize from Minotaur Books and the Private Eye Writers of America for his crime novel Cuts Through Bone. The award includes a publishing contract for the author, a convicted murderer who has been in a South Carolina prison since 1988. Hunt said he assembled his view of the outside world for the novel from books he read and from episodes of television’s Law and Order. (The New York Times)

IN OTHER CRAZINESS: “A new report claims that posing with a dog in your online dating profile makes you

more desirable — and posing with a cat means you’re going to die alone.” – Conan O’Brien “The blood moon is the second most impressive type of eclipse. No. 1 will always be a total eclipse of the heart.” – Craig Ferguson “A Colorado company has introduced the first marijuana vending machine. As a result, the vending machines around it are doing much better.” – Conan O’Brien

ROCKET SURGERY

Two boys working on a school science project involving model rocketry caused an explosion so powerful that it blew out several windows of their Seattle home, blasted open the back door and propelled debris into the backyard. After the boys were hospitalized, one of the fathers said the boys had tried to start a fire in the fireplace and may have used some of the rocket fuel to get it going. (CNN)

“Alternative Weekly Seeks Office Manager and Sex Columnist”

QUICK TAKE

By Ed Griffin-Nolan

SYRACUSE NEW TIMES HEADING BETWEEN THE SHEETS In all the excitement over the recent launch of the redesigned Syracuse New Times, you might have missed the news that we are losing a valued member of our team. Christine Dolgos Scheuerman, our office manager, will be heading to North Carolina, leaving us to pick up the pieces and carry on. Before she goes, Christine will have the unenviable task of finding her own replacement. To that end, she has prepared a job description, which you can find in this issue or on our website. The job description reads in part: “Qualified candidates need to be self-motivated, goal-oriented, with strong written and verbal communication skills. Must be able to work under pressure with deadline, be able to multi-task and have excellent organizational skills. Prior management experience is preferred but not required and training will be provided.” The New Times is also seeking to fill another (ahem) position. Our dream lineup for the redesigned paper includes someone covering a) drinking alcoholic beverages, b) driving fast cars, c) finding upscale housing, d) eating funky food, e) nosing around in local politics, f) making fun of himself (Kramer), g) listening to awesome music, and h) reviewing film and local theater. Just about every area of human endeavor. Except one thing. We can’t find a suitable sex columnist. The marketing folks, who the writers don’t ever speak with (we don’t even know their names) tell us that, while the data is still a bit soft, there is some sense that many of our readers do enjoy engaging in sexual activity — or at least reading about it. Alternative weeklies since Biblical Times (that was the name of the first alt-weekly) have been expected to carry the burden of bedroom reporting in their

In defense of the First Amendment Marty Baron, executive editor of The Washington Post, was interviewed on NPR’s Morning Edition after the Post was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for its role in breaking the National Security Agency spying story based on the leaks released by Edward Snowden. Baron spoke of former reporter Bart Gelman, who brought the Snowden documents to the Post, igniting a discussion in the struggling paper about what to do with them. “We came to the conclusion fairly quickly that this is a story that we needed to do. It carried risks for us legally and reputationally, but this (the Post) is an organization that in its history has taken on the most sensitive and difficult subjects,

respective cities. The New Times should be no exception. Months ago much of our staff let out a big whoop and a holler when word leaked that we were going to start running Savage Love, the weekly column by Seattle-based Dan Savage, who pretty much sets the standard for sex columnists these days. But when we opened the pages of the April 2 edition, and eagerly flipped to the slot where we expected to find Savage’s latest wisdom on rimming etiquette, we were a bit puzzled to find a Mr. Grant Reeher instead interviewing a Mr. Timothy Kennedy about a topic as unstimulating as the death of the daily newspaper. That really killed the mood. I’m not saying that Reeher and Kennedy couldn’t give us a solid 600 words on the rules of disclosure for pansexual three-ways (one of the topics in Savage’s April 2 column, which I do not claim to understand), but that was not their assignment. As it turns out, some of the grownups in charge of this sandbox had some second thoughts about Savage’s undeniably eclectic tastes and vivid powers of description (the guy is good, no denying that). So we are still in the hunt for someone to take on the sweetest, nastiest beat in journalism. So maybe we could combine the two job searches into one? “Alternative Weekly Seeks Office Manager and Sex Columnist.” That would get a lot of love on Craigslist. Many of the attributes described above would seem to fit both positions. Self motivated? In a pinch, that will have to do. Goal oriented? Sure, with some flexibility. Working under deadlines? The very definition of a quickie. And prior experience? Always preferred but, as the ad hints with a wink, training will be provided. What we’re looking for, in a nutshell, is our local Dan Savage. References required. Line forms to the right. And the left. SNT

and we were prepared to do that again,” he said. Baron went on to ask and then answer a question that we thought was answered when James Madison wrote the First Amendment: “Does the government always get to decide the bounds of what the press should report? Does the government get to decide that a national security will be implemented without any public debate, entirely in secret, with huge weaknesses and oversight, and that on the grounds of national security, it should never be reported to the American public? We concluded otherwise. And while I understand that there’s a controversy about the leaking of classified documents, sometimes that’s what it takes in order to get important policy issues before the American public.” Congratulations to the Post for having the guts to run with the Snowden story, and to the Pulitzer committee for honoring them.

ason Smorol left baseball, but baseball never left him. So when the Syracuse Chiefs’ restructured Board of Directors made Smorol an offer last fall to become the team’s general manager, Smorol couldn’t refuse.

Smorol, who grew up in North Syracuse and lives in Liverpool, inherited a franchise with a history of poor teams (no playoff appearances since 1998), dwindling attendance (an NBT Bank Stadium low of 345,047 in 2013), and a fiscal report that showed a stunning loss of nearly $1 million in 2013. Smorol recently sat down with New Times reporter Matt Michael to discuss why this is his dream job and how he’s going to make it work:

Is there a common thread to what you’re hearing from the fans? They wanted the radio back (it is — on The Score 1260 AM). They wanted value —more promotions, more fireworks, more giveaways. But from Opening Day on, what I am just amazed at is they’re just happy. They feel that welcoming spirit. They tell me it’s like a breath of fresh air here. There’s a sense of a change, a feeling of a change. It’s unbelievable, they’re thanking us, and we should be thanking them.

You’ve said that this is your dream job. Why? If you’re from Syracuse, and there’s a Triple-A franchise named the Syracuse Chiefs that you grew up with as a kid, and you want to keep working in baseball, specifically Minor League Baseball, that’s the job you want. I love Syracuse. I love Central New York. Put everything all together, and that’s your dream job.

You’re not giving away free tickets like the old regime. Why? We have a value, and it’s either $12, $10 or $5. To me, let’s give everybody great value and be welcoming, get a giveaway item, have fun, talk to people, get to know them. At the same time there’s great baseball going on. I still think that people like to watch a baseball game. SNT

What are the top three challenges you’re facing? No. 1, changing the culture on what our mission is, what we want to do, how we want to get there, and who we want to be. No. 2, building a foundation for the future. And No. 3, re-engaging with the community, with the fans.

Don’t feel bad, Syracuse Cheesecake Factory. An Atlanta-area CK also failed inspection shortly after opening, in December. Upon reTAKE inspection, it passed, barely. Conclusion: The media needs to back off these stories. Cheesecake Factories are SUPPOSED to be gross when they first open.

A RELATIONSHIP WORTH THE RISK

H

ow would you react if you had a close friend who behaved in a revolting, hurtful way that violated the most basic tenets of civilization? Would you run from that person, or would you offer heaping portions of love and support because that’s what a true friend does in a crisis?  There was no debate on my end when news broke that our gleaming new Cheesecake Factory at Destiny USA wasn’t so gleaming after all. The moment I learned that the 2-month-old gorge-a-torium had failed multiple health code inspections and that two patrons were suspected of getting ill from the food there, I knew I had to be there for my corporate-chain pal. To flush away our shared history would be wrong. You might recall that it was me — not Anderson Cooper, not Bill Moyers — who was first in line on that glorious Feb. 11 for CK’s local grand opening, after years of prayers and false alarms. What a day it was. There were balloons, corporate bigwigs and a giddy sense that anything was possible, including a small but statistically meaningful surge in myocardial infarction in the four-county area. When the restaurant finally opened for lunch, I invited the No. 2 guy in line — Gary Philips, of Liverpool, a long-time Cheesecake Factory fanatic — to dine with me. We ate like kings and promised to do it again soon. That is why I reached out to Gary last week amid the screaming accusations of undercooked chicken and lukewarm holding vessels of creamy marinara anthrax sauce. I wanted Gary to join me again at the Cheesecake Factory, this time as

a public affirmation of our devotion to the place.  Turns out, Gary was, um, busy. He answered my email invitation with complicated travel plans that pretty much precluded eating at the Cheesecake Factory.  “I just had a big late lunch at Stella’s,” he wrote. “I could join you this evening if you like and have a drink while you eat, but I doubt that I could eat anything.”  Coward!  Gary’s reluctance rattled me, but it also opened new possibilities. Maybe it made more sense for me to eat at the restaurant while monitored by a skilled medical professional, especially one with a background in infectious diseases. Dr. Cynthia Morrow came immediately to mind. Her schedule would be wide open. The former county health commissioner resigned recently over the naive view that mothers and babies matter more than the county executive’s political ambitions. “Thanks for thinking of me,” Morrow wrote. “As much as I would love to go to the Cheesecake Factory, I am going to try to keep a low profile — and I am going out of town. Sounds like a great story though.” Nor did my Upstate Medical University connec-

tions bear fruit — properly handled or otherwise. With all the turn-downs, I faced the prospect of eating alone and — yes — dying alone in a dehydrated heap in the Cheesecake Factory men’s room. No one wants that.  Thank goodness I had a backup plan.  “Come on, girls. We’re going to the Cheesecake Factory,” I announced. “We’re going to learn about being loyal to someone who has a problem.”  Miranda, the older one, wanted to know if the people who had gotten sick had come down with diarrhea or vomiting. I told her I wasn’t sure. Miranda looked troubled, which is exactly how teenage girls are supposed to look anyway. She agreed to go.  Lily put up more resistance.  “I’m kind of scared,” she said.  “I don’t want to get sick.”  I calmly explained to her that the restaurant had more or less passed its most recent inspection. I also assured her in a loving, nurturing tone that if she did not go with me, I would always love her sister more.  “Can we get cheesecake?” Lily asked.  “Yes,” I said.  That settled it. An hour or so later, the three of us were happily chowing down at a bustling Cheesecake Factory. Clearly, I was not the only customer voting with my feet, proving that it takes more than the runs to stop Central New Yorkers. We are one tough bunch!  I ordered a dirty martini and the catfish dinner. Miranda boldly went with the shrimp scampi. Lily ordered the massive Sheila’s Chicken Salad, named after a young Cheesecake Factory assistant manager who died in 1996 of botulism poisoning.  That was a joke. I don’t know who Sheila is.  We had a wonderful dinner. The only time I felt vaguely ill is when I saw the bill: 91 bucks.  Call it the price of friendship.

EARTH DAY EVERY DAY By Diane Williamson Kids’ toys and crafts look a lot different now than they did when we were kids. One of my favorite crafts as a kid was to make “birds’ nests” outside with mud and sticks, letting them dry in the sun. Mud, sticks, rocks, pinecones, paper and string (if you’re lucky) have been the toy and craft items for children throughout history. Commodities like tape and Band-Aids were tightly controlled by parents even only a generation ago. Fast-forward to a new era of cheap stuff. Plastic toys and craft products are so abundant that they have become the new hallmarks of childhood. Even while just about every American can recite the mantra “Reduce, Re-use, Recycle” in her sleep, individually we throw away 4.4 pounds of trash a day. Our Earth is in the midst of a genuine plastic trash problem. The Clean Air Council estimates that 2.4 million pounds of plastic enter the ocean every day, and in every square mile of ocean there are 50,000 pieces of plastic. Recently, on a beach in Great Britain, swimmers found a washed up yogurt cup circa 1970! While many of us might not feel comfortable talking with our kids about environmental destruction, the idea that animals eat plastic and die is just about the easiest concept of grasp. Of course, we might want to spare the heart-wrenching details, like the fact that mother seabirds mistake the unavoidable quantity of plastic trash for food and bring things like glue sticks, foam stickers and balloons to their chicks in the nest. Scientists then find the chicks dead and decomposing around these little piles of plastic that filled their stomachs. Unfortunately, recycling is not the solution that it is made out to be. Most plastics are not recyclable; even if there is a triangular chasing-arrows symbol on it, it does not mean that it’s recyclable. Plus, even the plastic that is recyclable can be made into another product only one time. At worst, we are teaching our kids to litter, ignoring where something goes once it leaves their sight. The message is: If it is fun now, it doesn’t matter NEXT PAGE

SALINA COURT: AN IDEA WHOSE TIME HAS COME? By Robert H. Linn Pedestrian malls are not new to cities, and some fine downtown areas have dedicated streets and even broader areas to pedestrian “auto-free” zones. Kalamazoo, Mich., became the first mid-sized city to adopt a pedestrian mall, in 1959, and there are many similar dedicated city auto-free areas in our country and around the world. Successful pedestrian malls are seen in Burlington, Vt.; Minneapolis; Oakland, Calif.; Des Moines, Iowa; Ithaca; San Antonio, Texas. In New York City, part of Times Square is closed to traffic. Other cities jumped into creating these malls, and some were not successful. Buffalo’s 25-year-old pedestrian transit-only mall was beautiful but had few pedestrians. Other cities

04.23.14 - 04.30.14 | syracusenewtimes.com

have done likewise because the areas were not planned well and because few people live downtown and, after normal work hours, the mall areas become ghost towns. While this has been proposed for our downtown in the past, I don’t feel the circumstances were right for this type of project when suggested. With recent developments in the center of Syracuse’s downtown, there’s no better time to start with one street and test the public reception and use. Is it time for Syracuse to create an auto free zone? I think so, and I suggest naming it Salina Court. The pedestrian-only street would be on South Salina Street from Jefferson Street to East Water Street. Past and recent developments in that vicinity — with new housing in Frank Cammuso

Dey’s Plaza, retail and housing in the Pike Block, the Armory Square area, Loew’s Landmark Theatre & Apartments, Franklin Square, Mission Landing, Amos Building apartments and other nearby locations — have brought a new residential, retail and entertainment community to downtown. With the success of these center city enhancements, such a mall bringing people to the area would spur further business and recreational development of the area. The movement of the Centro Transfer Hub to Warren Street and improvements in the Near West Side district with new or renovated buildings housing O’Brien & Gere engineers, WCNY, King & King Architects, the Redhouse Arts Center and a Marriott Hotel have all breathed new life into downtown. Salina Court would be restricted to emergency vehicles and delivery traffic, which would be limited to specific hours. The middle cross streets of Jefferson, East Fayette and Washington streets would accept crosstown traffic with stop and go travel only. Kiosks, tables, chairs, benches, night lighting, large planters and shaded leisure green space would enhance the court. Possibly local garden clubs and downtown residents would take responsibility for maintenance of garden areas and planters, as in the Meadowbrook Drive end caps project. Places for bicycle parking would be present. I recognize that a bus route change will be necessary, but with the transfer hub nearby, I believe that increased bus use will result from pedestrians leaving cars outside of the center city and busing to Salina Court. Salina Court with its proximity to the Connective Corridor and its bus transportation routes will further encourage connectivity of the Syracuse University community to downtown. Parking in downtown city garages should be free on weekends and every day after 3 p.m. Given the proven record of Clinton Square to attract people to the festivals that take place throughout the year, it is clear that people from our county and beyond travel to downtown to enjoy outside activities. The connection of Clinton, Hanover and Armory squares NEXT PAGE

SALINA COURT by Salina Court will enhance the festivals and all of downtown. We have a great city that is reinventing its downtown, and now is the time to consider Salina Court, whether all-year round or seasonal, from April through December. Developers have started the process with residential, retail and dining establishments; let’s enhance Salina Street to bring back the great center city we had when I came to Syracuse in 1971. SNT Robert H. Linn grew up in Albany and graduated from Ithaca College in 1971. He worked for 38 years with Ernst & Young CPAs in Syracuse and retired as its office managing partner. EARTH DAY what the consequences are. Don’t think about. At best, we have a cute and fun toy or piece of art that gets admired and played with for a couple of days. I also admired my mud birds’ nests for a couple of days, until the rain washed them away. As much as I love my daughter’s art, I don’t plan to keep it for thousands of years. The crazy thing about plastic is, we have designed a chemical compound that is almost indestructible to fill the consumer need for disposable items. For those interested in learning more about the plastic trash problem and all of the totally awesome efforts under way to address it, I highly recommend the documentary Bag It. It is informative, funny, and entirely down to earth. (Get it? Down to Earth.) Solutions to the plastic trash problem are everywhere. At our house, we recently made paste out of flour and water (well, it was my mom, actually, but I’ll take the credit). I swear it took less time than it would to locate the product on the shelves at Wegmans. It works really well, and it creates no plastic trash.

STUDENT SPOTS STILL UNFILLED AT CITY’S NEW LATIN ACADEMY There is still time for pupils to apply for kindergarten and first-grade classes beginning this fall at the Syracuse Latin Academy, a new concept school that the city school district is opening in September in the same building as Hughes Elementary School. The district has extended the application deadline until April 28. “We are looking for kids who are creative, and have an aptitude for learning at a faster pace,” said Kelly Manard, the school’s principal. Syracuse Latin Academy will be phased in over the next five years as Hughes shuts down. Hughes, along with Delaware Academy and Fowler High School, has been on the state’s list of poorly performing schools for three years, forcing the district to make dramatic changes to all three buildings. Manard won’t say how the pupils’ applications will be evaluated, or how many pupils have already applied. According to Mike Henesey, a district representative, the deadline extension was an indication that the district had not received as many applications as they had hoped. The plan calls for the academy to start with three kindergarten and three first-grade classes and to add one grade each year after. Manard is leaving the district office to open the academy. A Rochester native who studied at Ithaca College, Manard worked for 10 years in the Baltimore city schools before returning to Upstate New York in 2013. She described the move from the district’s downtown office to the Jamesville Avenue school as a “once in a career opportunity to start a school from scratch.” The elementary school is part of a longterm plan to create Latin academies for middle and high school age students. She said the plan is modeled on other similarly named schools in Boston and Chicago. Manard and her staff have visited the Latin Academy of Chicago, a 125-year-old private school that offers K-12 classes. She is hoping to visit Boston Latin, a junior and senior high school that is part of the Boston public school system. How will Syracuse Latin be different

from other city elementary schools? Pupils will be there, she says, because they choose to be there, and teachers must all have certification to teach gifted and talented students. But the teachers won’t need to know Latin. In fact, pupils won’t begin studying Latin until at least third grade. In first grade, they will learn Spanish. The term Latin school, Manard said, refers to an educational focus on liberal arts. “Latin gives kids a deep knowledge and understanding of language,” she said. “We will be helping build vocabulary foundational skills. We are working toward college and career ready.” But, insists Manard, the school is not a resurrection of the district’s gifted and talented program. “It’s not the same as a gifted and talented program, but a special educational program with more in-depth projects,” she said. “The requirement that teachers have their GTC (gifted and talented) certificate is to help our teachers learn strategies that will foster a desire for kids to take a deep dive into particular

subject areas. … It’s an educational option we haven’t been able to offer before. We will have really high academic and behavioral expectations, but we will provide any and all support that any student might need.” So what kind of pupil are the screeners looking for when they go through the applications? She wouldn’t say. “We are not releasing any information on the assessment process. Assessors will be looking for lots of different things, so we have a school that represents all of Syracuse,” she said. This is not the first time Hughes has been the site of an educational innovation. In the mid-1990s, the school was renovated and became a K-8 building with Spanish language instruction beginning in kindergarten. It was also known for its dedication to inclusive classrooms.   To learn more about applying to Syracuse Latin Academy, call the district at 435-5844.

One of Syracuse’s most intriguing mayors is Democrat James McGuire, who in 1896 bucked a Republican establishment to be elected. Onondaga County Court Judge Joseph Fahey has written a biography of McGuire, James K. McGuire:  Boy Mayor and Irish Nationalist. In his six years in office, McGuire built 38 schools, initiated extensive street paving and was a key figure in the creation of the Everson Museum and the Carnegie Library.

Joseph Fahey (JF): It started as a project that was requested by the Irish-American Cultural Institute. They were going to do an anthology of Irish-American leaders in [Onondaga] County, and they knew I was related to him, so they asked me to write a profile and I wrote the profile. They didn’t do the anthology, and I took it to the American Conference of Irish Studies in New York and delivered it as a paper down there, and Jim MacKillop at Syracuse University Press was in the audience and went on to offer me to write a biography, and I agreed to do it. GR: And what is the nature of your relation to him?

JF: He was my mother’s uncle. He was my great uncle. My grandfather’s older brother. GR: What made you want to devote all the time that you did to write the book?

JF: I think because he had what I call this above-the-radar, below-the-radar existence. He was involved in a very secret organization called Clan na Gael that raised money for the Irish Republican brotherhood. He was involved in some gun-running activities of his own, and I think that because he had this sort of clandestine wall of his life, he deliberately didn’t keep these things. GR: I read in your book that as a boy, McGuire was sent to a German school because they had the best reputation at the time. But the instruction was in German. How common was that then in the schools? JF: I don’t know exactly how common it was at that point. I mean, the schools he went to were really offered by the Lutheran churches on the North Side. He became fluent in German, and he actually could campaign in German, he could talk to the German audiences in their native tongue, which was pretty effective at that time.

JF: From the profile, I thought he was a pretty fascinating character in so many chapters of his life. Both as a mayor of Syracuse — he was pretty prominent on the national stage in Democratic politics and state-wide politics — and then he would become a very close confidant of Eamon de Valera’s (Irish nationalist and president of Ireland). And he was involved in the Irish independence movement both above and below the radar screen. So I thought he was pretty interesting, and I wanted to learn more about him.

GR: How did he go about running for mayor?

GR: Tell me how you went about researching his life.

GR: When he becomes mayor, he particularly was a builder. He was responsible for 38 schools and also responsible for a lot of street paving, which was very significant back then in terms of economic development. What informed that nature of his approach to being a mayor?

JF: It was quite an undertaking, because he didn’t leave any papers or diaries or correspondence or anything behind. So I wound up going into the archives of City Hall and copying some of the correspondence from his administration. I spent probably a couple of years of nights and weekends in the local history section of the library, and I pretty much had a day-byday account of his six years as mayor of Syracuse. I was able to access the American-Irish Historical Society’s archives, and then I was able to get cooperation from (Rep. James) Walsh about the Congressional investigations (McGuire) was involved in, and the archivists of Eamon de Valera’s papers in Ireland were very helpful, too. So, in the end, I was able to put together a pretty good picture of his life.

GR: Now why did he not leave anything of his own?

04.23.14 - 04.30.14 | syracusenewtimes.com

JF: He had actually been approached by the Democratic Party before he was 21 years old to run for school commissioner and [state] assemblyman, and he declined both nominations. And after he was responsible … to support the family … after my great-grandfather died and he established himself in business, he decided to run for mayor. And he ran an insurgent campaign — got the nomination of the Democratic side as an insurgent and then ran against a divided Republican party.

JF: I think he had always recognized from having to leave school as a child the value of education. But he also saw that if you didn’t invest in education, especially in the aftermath of the Panic of 1893, you are going to have pretty devastated, depressed homeless people in the city, and he was very concerned about that. He was very concerned about offering constructive programming even in the Onondaga County penitentiary. I think he really placed a real value on education, and he had a special love for the library. He was a trustee of the library before he was mayor. That was the only other public office he ever held.


JUDGE FAHEY GR: Now, in those days, ethnic politics was really big. Did he try to create patronage for Irish-Americans? JF: He did create patronage for the Irish, but I have to say about McGuire, he created patronage for anybody who was for him. So he didn’t discriminate along ethnic lines. If you were German or if you were Irish or you weren’t, he would find something for you. GR: You’re a Democrat. This gentleman was a Democrat. Are Faheys all Democrats? Are McGuires all Democrats? JF: Yeah, we are. Somebody once said to me that he wondered if I was going to become a Republican, and I said that if there is going to be a Republican Fahey someday, it will be somebody other than me. GR: What defeated him as mayor? JF: I think there was a certain amount of McGuire fatigue. You know, he had three terms. He seemed to acknowledge that his focus had become devoted to running for governor, and that became a distraction from Syracuse, and he thought that hurt him with the Syracuse populace. And then the Republicans, they indicted him in the middle of his second term and created a legislative committee Grant Reeher hosts that took all the city’s prior debt and WRVO Public Media’s put it all into one budget, raising the program The Camptax rates, so they worked pretty hard to bell Conversations at 6 defeat him.

GR: He was a strong proponent of Irish independence, and that led him to advocate that the U.S. should side with the Germans in World War I, because the Germans were backing the Irish rebels. And he wrote some well known and controversial books at that time: The King, The Kaiser and Irish Freedom and What Germany Could Do for Ireland. He also housed and supported Irish rebels. Did he ever rethink any of those positions after World War I? JF: I don’t think he ever rethought those positions; he surely didn’t apologize for them. What he did say — because he did become a subject of the congressional investigation and the propaganda at the conclusion of World War I — and his position was that at the time, (because) America had entered the war on the side of the British, he would pull his books from the market. He raised money for the American and British war effort, and

was a loyal American, but up to the point where America was entering the war he felt that the Irish would do better if Germany prevailed over Britain.

LOCAL LUNCH

GR: (He was) putting the interests of the Irish question above the American question in terms of World War I. If you think about that through the lens of the politics today, that would be a really, really chancy kind of move to make. JF: It would, and it was. Wilson so loathed Irish-American leadership that he turned the forerunner of the FBI loose, and a number of them were charged with sedition and treason. Teddy Roosevelt recommended they all be interned in World War I.

BREWSDAY TUES SOULSHINE (SUN) SOUNDCHECK (SUN)

REBEL VINYL

GR: How long have you sat on the bench, and what kinds of cases typically come before you? JF: I’ve been on the bench since Jan. 1, 1997, and I have handled almost exclusively felony-level criminal cases. I also handle annual reviews of civilly committed sex offenders under Article 10 of the mental hygiene law. But I would say 90 percent of my work is presiding over criminal trials. GR: And are there any particular insights about law or society that this experience of being a judge has given you? JF: I still believe that probably the greatest thing that we can do to avoid young people falling into lives of crime is to educate them and train them in ways that they can enter the workforce productively. H.G. Wells once said that history was a race between education and catastrophe, and I think that holds true, from what I see on the bench every day. GR: Well, you’re sounding like James K. McGuire, I think — the focus on education. If you could change one thing about the criminal justice system, what would it be? JF: I think I would probably say it would be wise to give judges more discretion over non-violent cases in which drugs and alcohol are a problem, to offer more treatment options that are out there. I think we are starting to see a lot of good work done in those areas, but I’m not sure if we’ll ever keep up with the number of cases coming through. GR: Finally, what professional or creative achievement in your life so far has surprised you the most? JF: That in my 64th year, I’m taking piano lessons. SNT Next week: Gov. Lincoln Chafee, of Rhode Island, talks about political polarization and political civility.

THE STRAIGHT DOPE

• 30 percent to 60 percent of married people in the U.S. will engage in infidelity during their marriage. • Infidelity is TAKE becoming more common among people under 30. • The decision to be unfaithful is rarely a rational choice. Instead, infidelity is usually driven by circumstances and emotions. — truthaboutdeception.com

Psychology Today advocates multiple partners and open marriages and offers “evidence” that monogamy isn’t possible. This bugs me. Why are they doing this? Comparing man to animals is just weird to me, because we’re supposed to be separated out by reason and morality, right? — The Good Wife, Austin, Texas

Is Monogamy Obsolete? Psychology Today, ever on the cutting edge, has had monogamy in its crosshairs lately. A casual search turned up at least nine articles about the subject in the past year, from “The Curious Couple’s Guide to Occasional Non-Monogamy” to “But Honey, I Thought You Meant ‘Socially’ Monogamous!” Here’s a representative quote, from “The Truth about Polyamory,” by Deborah Taj Anapol:  “Our cultural obsession with monogamy is going the same way as prohibition, slavery, the gold standard and mandatory military service. In other words, while serial monogamy is more popular than ever, lifelong monogamy is pretty much obsolete, and for better or worse, polyamory is catching on.” Let’s break this down: “Monogamy is on a par with prohibition, slavery, etc.” Spare me. “Polyamory is catching on.” Depends how we define the term. If strictly, show me your cites, lady. If more liberally, we can talk. More below.  “Serial monogamy is in, lifelong monogamy is out.” True beyond dispute. However, we need to clarify what we mean. Time for the straight dope. Let’s start with those investigations of animal mating habits you take issue with. It’s often said 9 percent or some other low proportion of mammals is monogamous. So? A puppy reaches maturity in a year; a human newborn needs 11 to 12 years. There’s an explanation for monogamy right there. Except it doesn’t hold up. Among chimpanzees, the species most closely related to us, the young reach maturity in 8 to 15 years, comparable to humans. But chimps mate promiscuously and never pair off. Although the young remain with their mothers, there’s otherwise minimal family structure. Alpha males dominate and have sex more often than males farther back in the alphabet, but they don’t have harems to organize and defend. You may find that weird, Ms. Good Wife (although no doubt some guys are thinking: the chimp’s life for me). My point is, there’s nothing in our biology that demands monogamy. Sure, it has practical advantages. For humans, rearing the young is a more labor- and resource-intensive process than for chimps, who don’t have college tuition to contend with. But I’ll bet we could come up with some freelove, it-takes-a-village kibbutz thing if we put our minds to it.  A lot of Psychology Today contributors think that, now that we’ve arrived at our pres-

ent advanced state of civilization, we’d be happier if we abandoned the impossible dream of happy lifetime pairing and tried something else. The question is whether we’re doing so in significant numbers. Answer: Of course we are. It’s just not called polyamory, or some other trendy term. It’s called divorce. Let’s look at monogamy alternatives, from least to most common (I’ll ignore celibacy): Open marriage. That is, a married couple who expressly allow each other to have other sex partners. I don’t doubt there are secure, stable individuals who can handle this long-term without tears. But not a lot. PT contributor Michael Castleman cites unnamed “sexologists” as saying 1 percent of married couples are “committed to occasional non-monogamy,” with “another percent or 2 ‘curious’ enough to visit sex or swing clubs.” Self-report of sexual activity is notoriously unreliable, but never mind. We’ll say 1 percent to 3 percent.  Adultery. American men have a 28 percent likelihood of being unfaithful to a partner by the time they reach age 60, and women a 15 percent chance. Possibly this is more than in the past, but the change isn’t dramatic. Polyamory. In its purest form, this term is apparently used to mean having sustained, emotionally intimate sexual relationships with multiple partners who all understand they’re sharing. Nothing persuades me this is common on my planet. However, if we expand the definition to cover the behavior of unmarried individuals who juggle multiple lovers at times (if only because of overlapping monogamous relationships), the number obliged to fess up would surely be impressively large. This provides useful context for our last category.   Divorce. Here we arrive at the heart of the matter. How many Americans will experience lifetime monogamy? Answer: less than half. As of 2011, for every 6.8 marriages there were 3.6 divorces, a 53 percent rate. This is significantly more than just 10 years earlier, when the divorce rate was 49 percent.  To this add an even more striking statistic: According to Pew Research, in 1968 the number of unmarried U.S. adults (including those widowed, divorced and never legally married) was 28 percent. As of 2010, it was 49 percent. In other words, half of us are single and free to play the field, and a sizable fraction of the other half will eventually shed their partners and join the fray. Conclusion: Lifetime monogamy has ceased to be the default American condition, even if the time of first marriage is when we start the clock.

MIXED MESSAGES Will poor reputation of some county agencies sully well-regarded health programs? By Renée K. Gadoua

A

woman with years of experience as a social worker in Syracuse tells a story of a mother sleeping with her newborn baby in bed between her and the baby’s dad. The baby suffocated because of the heat of the parents’ bodies and the heat of the room. The bereaved mother later told the social worker that a staffer with Onondaga County’s Department of Social Services came to her home. Without offering condolences for the couple’s loss, the worker began opening cupboards and drawers, apparently looking for drugs, because the mother had a documented history of drug use. Several longtime experts working with Syracuse’s most vulnerable families told the New Times similar stories last week. While none of the stories can be verified, they suggest a deep-seated perception that the Department of Social Services is unsympathetic and punitive, with a primary goal of taking children away from their parents. The result, experts say, is that many families most in need of education and assistance might resist aid if they think it is connected with DSS. The apparent disconnect between

the county’s well-intentioned efforts to help families and the perception that DSS polices behavior reflects one facet of what former county Health Commissioner Dr. Cynthia Morrow has described as an “unintended consequence” of Onondaga County’s possible reorganization. Morrow resigned as health commissioner early this month because she disagrees with the county’s plan to move its maternal and child health services into the county’s Department of Children and Family Services.

Increased Painkiller Prescriptions At-risk families face a new challenge. U.S. doctors are prescribing opioid painkillers to about one in five pregnant women who receive Medicaid benefits. That means more babies could be born addicted. Onondaga County has the highest rate in New York of hospital discharges of newborns with drug-related problems, according to the state health department. In New York, 6.9 of 1,000 newborns have drug-related issues; in Onondaga County, the rate is 26 of 1,000 newborns. That sharp difference can be explained by the fact that all babies born in the regional NICU are recorded as being from Onondaga County, while the region stretches much farther. Still, Dr. Michelle Bode, a neonatologist at the unit, is concerned about the trend, and worries that pregnant women might not disclose to their caregivers that they are taking prescription painkillers. Mothers who use these narcotics — even if only for a few weeks, risk giving their babies neonatal abstinence syndrome — otherwise known as withdrawal. Read more at http://bit.ly/1eVW2mz

COUNTY HEALTH The county in 2013 began a reorganization of all its human services to offer more streamlined service to families. The Department of Social Services-Economic Security provides public benefit programs. The Department of Children and Family Services provides casework programming related to child welfare, mental health, school-based services and juvenile justice, including Hillbrook Juvenile Detention Center. The county also created the Department of Adult and Long Term Care Services. Reorganization of the county’s Health Department would continue to make access to services less confusing, according to county officials. The Health Department oversees programs including nutrition and healthy food support (WIC), home visits for new mothers and Healthy Start. No change will occur until at least the 2015 county budget in the fall, said Onondaga County Legislator Danny J.

Liedka, R-East Syracuse, who is chair of the county legislature’s Health Committee. He said Morrow’s resignation was premature because no formal proposal has been made. “They are not going to put this in if they think it’s going to jeopardize families and children. That’s that,” he said. “They’re certainly not going to do it if it’s going to jeopardize funding.” But fears and criticism are strong among some in the health care provider community. They worry about funding, and one woman with years of experience as a social worker and health educator declined to speak on the record, saying she feared she would lose her job if she were candid. Elizabeth Crockett, executive director of Reach CNY, is worried about losing money. Reach CNY is an independent agency that contracts with Onondaga County to provide two programs: the Syracuse Healthy Start Consortium, which seeks to improve

maternal child health and eliminate disparities in infant mortality in Syracuse; and a perinatal program, which provides pre- and perinatal services, such as breastfeeding support and education about safe infant sleep. County grants pay for four employees and 15 percent of the executive director’s salary. “We rely on that money,” Crockett said. “What we don’t know is whether the new design will need to be looked at by the state and federal governments.” Crockett echoes the concerns of Morrow and other medical experts who see child and maternal health services as a core public health function. “Healthy Start has community input as part of it,” she said. “That’s why it would have been important to talk to the public first. It’s so hard for us to understand why it would make sense to take some of the direct services and move them, because they depend on other services we offer.” The public health structure, she said,

Onondaga County Medical Society Opposes Proposal An executive committee of the Onondaga County Medical Society voted unanimously last week to oppose the proposal to take services for babies and mothers out of the county health department, The Post-Standard reported. Dr. David Halleran, president of the society, told the Post there has not been a local issue to generate as much concern among physicians in at least a decade.

04.23.14 - 04.30.14 | syracusenewtimes.com

“I haven’t run into any doctor in town who thinks this is a good idea,” Halleran said. He also spoke highly of former county Health Commissioner Dr. Cynthia Morrow. “The fact she’s principled enough to stand up and resign over it is pretty telling,” he told the Post.


“is so valuable and has evidence behind it and it’s effective.” Syracuse Healthy Start provided home visits to 703 families in 2013, and a total of 569 people attended 87 group health education sessions last year. The 2011-2013 infant mortality rate for city of Syracuse residents was 7 per 1,000 live births. That’s less than half the rate in the mid-1980s, when 18 of every 1,000 babies born in Syracuse died in their first year. At the time, Syracuse had one of the highest infant mortality rates of U.S. cities. Crockett and others fear that a stigma associated with DSS — the name most still use, despite the county county’s reorganization — could undermine trust between families and providers and slow or reverse progress in areas such as infant mortality and premature birth. A pregnant 15-year-old is influenced by her family and friends, said the worker afraid to speak on the record. “They see Social Services as the enemy,” she said forcefully. “They say, ‘They’ll be in your business and take your children.’ It’s a history of what CPS (Child Protective Services) is.” She and several others interviewed conceded that sometimes social workers have to remove children from a home to keep them safe. And most of those interviewed said Child and Family Services workers are well-trained and committed to helping families. But the consensus is that for many families, a visit from DSS or CPS makes them defensive and less likely to seek aid for fear of being judged or punished. “We are going to lose clients because of that connection,” the worker said. “Moms who need to get prenatal care are not going to get care as early. It’s a real concern. They (the county) don’t know what people are really living.” Evelyn Kinsey, a member of the executive council of Syracuse Healthy Start and a longtime social worker who works at Jewish Family Services, was blunt about the deep suspicion and fear many city families hold for anyone connected with DSS. “If the mom had to go to WIC to get prenatal care and other services she may need, she may fear that her child might be taken away,” she said. “Say she indulges in smoking marijuana and crack cocaine. You think she’s going to go down there?”

Kinsey points out that healthy babies save money. “If our moms are healthy, there’s a strong possibility our babies are healthy,” she said. “If the baby is born and the mom is addicted to drugs and the baby is addicted to drugs, that’s a burden to all the taxpayers. If you bring a sick baby into this community, underweight and hooked on drugs, in the NICU for six months on all kinds of tubes and machines, who pays for that?”

Kinsey said experience shows that social workers visiting a home are often met with suspicion and fear — if the parent even opens the door. “That mother automatically goes in the defensive mode,” she said. “She thinks, ‘What did I do wrong? I don’t want those people here. Why is she coming here for?’” Dr. Michelle Bode, a neonatologist at the Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Crouse Hospital, in Syracuse, treats many of the city’s sickest infants.

The increased use of prescription painkillers (codeine, hydrocodone and oxycodone) among pregnant women is just the latest challenge for the vulnerable families she treats. New babies going through drug withdrawal often end up at Crouse’s NICU. “My worry is these women won’t tell us they are using a narcotic,” Bode said. “They may not think it’s a problem because it was prescribed. They might be afraid to tell us.” Patients fear the stigma of drug use and don’t want to be under the supervision of DSS, she said. If trust declines, so will early intervention, she said. “Are we going to see a drop in prenatal care done early? Are we going to see a rise in the rate of infant mortality? It might not be direct cause and effect, but it sure is going to be looked at,” she said. “There’s a real fear,” Bode said. “The word ‘DSS’ strikes fear in families. Period.” Sandra Lane, an expert in medical anthropology and public health who teaches at Upstate Medical University and Syracuse University, understands the concerns Bode and others have raised. Lane is the author of Why Are Our Babies Dying? Pregnancy, Birth, and Death in America. The 2008 book is based on research in Syracuse from 1997 to 2003. Lane was also the founding director of Syracuse Healthy Start, serving from 1997 to 2002. “The language pushes buttons,” she said. “It’s an important cultural fear to acknowledge.” She cited the Tuskegee syphilis experiment, in which the U.S. Public Health Service studied the progression of untreated syphilis in African-American men, as one source of mistrust. More than 400 men infected with syphilis went untreated for decades in a federally financed experiment in Alabama. “It was terrible,” Lane said. “One of the worst fallouts was it left people of color fearful of using medical care.” That’s one reason Healthy Start did not call itself the health department, she said. But she also called DSS workers “quite reasonable and deliberative. They were not trying to take children away quickly.” And when children did have to be taken from dangerous or neglectful homes, they “acted with professional concern,” Lane said.

What the County Says Last year, during the budget process, we realigned services because many people were receiving services across departments. It was so hard for families. We could do better. It was just very confusing to a lot of people. We thought we could make care connections far better. The services that are being provided through Child and Family Services are voluntary. People access mental health services voluntarily. … We talked to many families. They were appreciative that we were doing this. No one thought doing this would have a chilling effect. In the child welfare system, half of the families currently receiving child welfare services are participating on a volunteer basis. They have come into the system and see us as a help. These are families that trust us. Our planning is by no means done on this. I did contact some other counties that are organized this way. I asked them if they have any evidence through data or anecdotes that there is a chilling effect on seeking services. The answer was “no.”

— DAVID SUTKOWY

Commissioner of the Department of Children and Family Services

They’re reacting to something that is not part of our thinking. They would become a part of Child and Family Services. They are not the same program. You have spoken to people on the medical side. The human services providers have not made that accusation. This idea that physical health is somehow segregated from the whole health of the child is one that should not be promoted here.

— ANN ROONEY

Deputy county executive for human services

If something is happening that is inappropriate under the current program, under Healthy Families the nurses are mandated reporters. They are obligated to elevate it. To say these same people under a different organization will act differently is just wrong. That’s underestimating the clients.

What’s At Stake Here’s how the Onondaga County Health Department describes its Maternal and Child Health services: “Division of Maternal and Child Health (MCH) is made up of programs that target at-risk infants and children, new moms and parents, as well as their families. These include the Departments of WIC, Healthy Start, Immunizations, Special Children Services and the Bureau of Community Health Nursing. Services provided include home visits by nurses, outreach workers, and social worker to maternal/child clients for health assessments, case management and consultation, preventive teaching, as well as facilitating access to medical care and referrals for indicated community agencies and services. We concentrate our efforts to reach first time pregnant women and those at highest-risk for infant mortality, low birth weight, and developmental delays or disabilities. MCH strives to promote a healthier maternal/child community and to eliminate healthcare disparities. MCH tailors all client services to meet the differing needs of each individual and family. For more information about the Division or to make a referral, call 315-435-2000.” “Are we going to see a drop in prenatal care done early? Are we going to see a rise in the rate of infant mortality?” asks Dr. Michelle Bode, neonatologist at Crouse Hospital’s NICU. Michael Davis photo

Lawmakers Discuss Objections to Proposal The Health Committee held a special meeting April 11 to address Dr. Cynthia Morrow’s concerns about the proposal to move the county’s maternal health programs in the county’s Department of Children and Family Services.

COUNTY HEALTH She does see merit in consolidating all county maternal and child services. For example, many women experience depression in pregnancy and after pregnancy. “Having perinatal care and mental health services linked together would be a great thing,” she said. “Pregnant women might have multiple needs: housing, shelter from domestic violence, drugs, she might need smoking cessation, lead poisoning assistance. … Anything that can help coordinate those services would be good. The more we could integrate them, the better it would be for the people, and there might be cost savings.” Lane hopes the county reorganization creates an integrated data system. “We have about 2,200 births a year in Syracuse,” she said. “Many of the people with the greatest health challenges live in the city. Two thousand two hundred is not too many to coordinate if there was software and training and capacity to follow these kids so when a public health nurse goes out to the home, they might get information about other services. Think how efficient it could be.” The bottom line, Lane said, is, “if it’s done well, the potential good outweighs the potential bad. I understand where that fear comes from. But when the decision has been made to coordinate services, we have to take that fear and deal with it. It’s very possible to change perceptions.” She suggests a public relations effort to address the fear, and meetings at churches, faith communities and community centers. “They need to talk about it with the families,” she said. “They need to be clear, ‘This is what we’re trying to do.’” Kinsey, the longtime social worker, remains skeptical. “They really need to think this through before they vote,” she said. “They really need to get the community’s take on this. They need to talk with the mothers. They’re the ones that are going to be affected.” SNT Renée K. Gadoua is a freelance writer and editor. Follow her on Twitter @ReneeKGadoua.

This weekend the organization will emphasize all things Syracuse with its inaugural Spring Fest. (Actually, the festival, which began a decade earlier as the Syracuse International Film and Video Festival, was once part of the Central New York springtime calendar until it was relocated to October earlier this decade.) Moviemakers with local connections, either as native Central New Yorkers or having gone to school here, will be in the spotlight, and they’ll all be coming home to present their product and host question-and-answer sessions. Eastwood’s Palace Theatre, 2384 James St., will serve as the Spring Fest screening room on Friday, April 25, and Saturday, April 26. The venue will also hold displays of works from Central New York artists, local musicians will perform both nights and area wineries will offer tastings. The first movie to unspool is director Julia Wrona’s The Long Bike Back (Friday, 6:30 p.m.). It begins with the 2006 events concerning her husband, percussionist Pearson Constantino (formerly of Skaneateles), who while riding his bicycle was sideswiped by a hit-and-run


driver, an incident that resulted in Constantino’s broken femur and pelvis, shattered vertebrae and a concussion. Wrona’s work follows her husband’s extensive rehabilitation process and the 2008 cross-country bike ride he embarked on with his brother Pete Constantino, a route that stretched from Oregon to Cape Cod. Since its completion in 2013, the documentary has often been screened to promote bicycle safety. Writer-director J.R. Hughto, who grew up in Canastota, brings his hotsy provocative drama Diamond on Vinyl (Friday, 8:45 p.m.), which merited conspicuous buzz at last year’s Slamdance Film Festival, where it was hailed as a successor to pioneering indie efforts like Steven Soderbergh’s sex, lies and videotape. Secrets are spilled that damage the relationship between a recently engaged couple (Brian McGuire and Nina Millin), and matters only get more complicated when a Los Angeles photographer named Charlie (Sonja Kinski, daughter of Nastassja Kinski and granddaughter of Klaus Kinski) enters the picture. Incidentally, Dalton’s American Decorative Arts, 1931 James St., is displaying and selling Hughto’s photographs through June 14. The Saturday shows start with From the Wings (12:30 p.m.), a 30-minute documentary from Paul Capostosto, a graduate student of SU’s VPA program. The film offers a backstage profile of the Syracuse City Ballet Company as it gears up for a 2013 production of The Nutcracker. Next is executive producer Cassidy Dimon’s Barzan (1:30 p.m.), about one man’s troubles following some unexpected fallout from the 9/11 Commission Report. When Iraqi immigrant Sam “Barzan” Malkandi’s name turns up on the report, he is wrongly arrested as a terrorist and must fight threats of deportation as a result of homeland security. Barzan, partially funded with Kickstarter bucks, played at last year’s Woodstock Film Festival. John Bevilacqua, who grew up in Syracuse, wears many hats as writer, producer and director of My Funny Valentine (3:30 p.m.). It’s a quirky romcom out of Los Angeles, in which a lovelorn writer (Tom Payne) attempts to shoehorn the prospective woman of his dreams (Pippa Black) into his life’s script. Stuart Connelly, an SU graduate, weighs in with The Suspect (6 p.m.), acclaimed as an impressive debut from the budding writer-director. A small-town sheriff (William Sadler) copes with the aftermath of an armed bank robbery, with the race card entering the picture when two African-Americans (Mehki Phifer and Sterling

Sterling K. Brown in Stuart Connelly’s The Suspect.

K. Brown) are implicated. Connelly, who makes his first return to Syracuse in the 21st century, allows that “like the movie Memento, The Suspect rewards a second viewing.” Wrapping Spring Fest is the comical documentary CowJews and Indians (8:15 p.m.), which actually has a longer subtitle: How Hitler Scared My Family — and I Woke Up in an Iroquois Longhouse with a Picture of Jesus, Reminding Me — for the Wrong Reason — That I Owe the Mohawks Rent. Writer-director Marc Halberstadt details his initial attempts to gain reparations from Germany long after the Nazis took his Jewish grandfather’s property, but then he realizes that maybe the Germans should instead be making reparations to the Mohawks because he is living on what was once their land. Legal complexities aside, Halberstadt will be joined by Oren Lyons, faithkeeper for the Onondaga Nation, for a lively discussion regarding the theft of cultural heritages. SNT Admission to the Syracuse International Film Festival Spring Fest features several price points. All single-admission ducats will be $10. Tickets for both films on Friday, April 25, are $15, as well as the Saturday afternoon program on April 26. Saturday evening’s shows will be $20 for both. An all-day Saturday ticket is $25. And expect to pay $30 for both days. Call 671-2188 for details.

Many theater companies wind down their seasons during springtime, yet Central New York Playhouse will go full steam throughout TAKE the summer. Next up from the troupe run by Dustin Czarny (pictured in this Michael Davis photo): The Wild Party (May 16 to 31), a musical set during the Roaring ’20s.

NEIL SIMON’S BOOB-TUBE MEMORIES

N

eil Simon’s Laughter on the 23rd Floor, at the Central New York Playhouse through May 3, is the playwright’s second essay on comedy. In The Sunshine Boys (1972), he shows us how the wells of humor are found in bitterness and disappointment. REVIEW

In the autobiographical Laughter (1993), Simon lets us know how a joke factory works. He was once the junior-most (25 years old) member of a team producing 90 minutes of material for a volatile neurotic on live television. The action begins in March 1953, but there is nothing nostalgic about Laughter. In an uncanny anticipation of AMC’s Mad Men, Laughter presents a world that, for all its explosive hilarity amid tension, we have no wish to return to. Given that NBC’s Your Show of Shows with Sid Caesar (who died in February at age 92) was indeed 61 years ago, director Dustin M. Czarny is prudent not to waste time and energy trying to mimic the models for the main characters. They have pretty much faded from popular memory. “Footnotes are not funny,” could well be a line in the play. The name of the character the writers are struggling to support is Max Prince, close enough to clarify the link to Caesar. In creating the role Edward Mastin brings a mustache and a boozy, drug-ridden blank stare, making him look like a zonked William Powell, with just a touch of Jackie Gleason’s bravado. Such a character

04.23.14 - 04.30.14 | syracusenewtimes.com

might entrance millions, but in the office he has to be restrained from putting his fist through the wall. Never warm and fuzzy, in his sole dialogue with the Simon character, Lucas Brickman (Dan Rowlands), Max gives no indication he knows who he’s talking to. In an absence of vanity, Simon does not give his alter-ego Brickman many gags but instead has him earnestly introduce the other characters and explain transitions. Each comes with a distinct personality and agenda, but only Milt Fields (Lanny Freshman, Syracuse’s most reliable vaudevillian) is full of tricks and talks like a nightclub comic. The senior writer, Val Slotsky (Jim Magnarelli), sees the roots of his comedy in Gogol and Chekhov but can find no humor in the death of Josef Stalin, a news item of the day. Despite the Russian accent, Magnarelli plays Val with a touch of MGM’s golden-age comic actor S.Z. (“Cuddles”) Sakall, including the malapropisms: “You call him Marlon Brando? I call him Marlo Brandon: It’s funnier.” Other writers deal with implications of the job instead of just trying to knock the others dead in writing sessions. Kenny Franks (David Vickers) wonders

how much of humor relies on aggression. Carol Wyman (Gina Lynne Fortino), the only woman in the crew, suffers casual gender aggression, but really worries that any jokes about witch-hunting Sen. Joseph McCarthy could bring down vengeance and make them all unemployable. Milt still says McCarthy giggles like Porky Pig. Chain-smoking Brian Doyle (Dustin Czarny), the only Irishman in the pack, thinks television is too transitory and small-time and has set his sights on breaking into the big money in Hollywood. By arriving last, the loudmouthed hypochondriac Ira Stone (Jim Uva) makes the biggest entrance and, as a performer upstages the other voices at the writing table. Rumor has it that Ira was meant to evoke Mel Brooks, actually a year older than Simon, who was indeed already on the team. Brooks’ take on working in the joke factory is found in the 1982 movie he produced, My Favorite Year, and subsequent stage musical. Director Czarny and actor Uva jettison the Brooks link but still give Ira some of the best gags. When Max does not appreciate a line Ira has written for him, he tears it out of the script and eats it. That script is for a spoof of Marlon Brando’s Julius Caesar, a comic genre pioneered on Your Show of Shows and later taken to town by Brooks in movies like Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein. Crisis comes when network execs argue such humor goes over the head of the great unwashed and takes too much time, thus the show should be reduced by a half-hour. Director-actor Czarny maintains a mood of fine frenzy throughout, although the crispness of gag lines is uneven, with Mastin, Rowlands, Uva, Freshman and Magnarelli at the top of the game. Navroz Dabu’s excellent late-art deco set and Capri Merrifield’s period costumes really take us back to the Eisenhower age. SNT

NEW YORK STORIES

T

he new display at Auburn’s Schweinfurth Art Center rambles through several rooms, presenting work by 65 artists. An exhibition this large inevitably offers contrasts in media, subjects, and artistic perspective. However, the 2014 edition of Made in New York has its own imprint. There’s interest in small pieces, in distinctive approaches to familiar subjects, in photos which make up one-third of the show’s portfolio, and much more. Lana Slinkard’s “Sins of the Centaurs,” a small bass-wood sculpture, portrays a moment of frenzied violence, of tooth-and-nail combat. Made in New York also encompasses Sangeun Yu’s “Unit of Amusement-Tollgate,” with its very different take on a row of toll booths. The acrylic sees the booths not as purely functional objects but as architecturally interesting in their own right. In “Karpet (Red),” Jackie Branson uses carpet, usually considered a key element of a living room setup, and integrates it into a provocative sculpture. There’s a piece of carpet in the background, protected by a barrier made up of circular saw blades and other metal items. The piece suggests that sometimes it’s necessary to defend a home. More than 20 photos hang on gallery walls, providing an informal survey of contemporary photography: color as well as black-and-white images, silver-gelatin and inkjet prints, and digital images. The pieces range from Jo Gravely’s straight-up,

04.23.14 - 04.30.14 | syracusenewtimes.com

well done “Crow Skull and Nest,” to Paul Pearce’s “Sharp Shooter,” another of his photos discussing war, violence and culture, to Sarah Pfohl’s “Pines before Mother,” part of a series featuring her mother. Meredith Cantor-Feller’s “American God of Risk and Release,” a digital image, is a work full of ambiguity. Indeed, it takes two or third viewings just to consider the possibilities posed by “American God.” The exhibition also features noteworthy pieces that don’t necessarily fit into a particular category. In the gouache “Skate Park,” Chris Baker goes big and bold with intense colors, depicting three skateboarders and graffiti-filled walls. Anita Welych’s “Dusky Seaside Sparrow, Extinct 1987” references not only the passing of one bird but also larger environmental issues. Also look for William Keyser’s “Lift Off,” a wood, glass and hidden hardware sculpture. For “Nesting Vessels,” Raphael McCormack fashioned the seven-segment artwork from pulp made from abaca fiber, woven wire, and willow sticks. The

“nests” come in various sizes and seemingly bridge art and nature. Nancy Callahan created a large piece with a long title: ‘Mechanized Shorthand Device Plucked from a Stenographer’s Dream.” It incorporates wood, paper, glass, metal and found objects, and taps into the notion of an inventor’s fantasy. The work earned Callahan a best-of-show award. Made in New York has traditionally included works portraying scenes in this region, and 2014 is no exception. The exhibit presents Diane Newton’s pastel celebrating autumn, Roger De Muth’s illustration “Mott Street General Store” and David Owen’s “January-Bridge Street,” which portrays Oswego in mid-winter. The 2014 exhibition, like its predecessors, displays pieces by artists living in Rochester, Syracuse, Brooklyn and other New York locales. It also reflects decisions made by a new set of jurors: Kim Waale and Michael Sickler. They chose a portfolio with few videos and large installations, a bunch of photos, and a number of high-quality sculptures that help boost the show’s energy. The Empire State-centric show keeps changing each year, and that’s a key aspect of its appeal. Made in New York runs through May 25 at the Schweinfurth Art Center, 205 Genesee St., Auburn. The gallery is open Tuesdays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays, 1 to 5 p.m. Admission is $6 for adults, free for children younger than 12. For more information, call 2551553. SNT


TOPIC: FILM

The director of next year’s Batman/ Superman movie, Zack Snyder, defends the violence in his Man of Steel as realistic TAKE and true to the comic books but regrets that “everyone clings to the Christopher Reeve version of Superman” from the squeaky-clean 1978 movie. “It’s just funny to see people really taking it personally,’’ he told Forbes.

FAITH IN FILM Of course, a movie should not sway something as significant as whether or not you believe in an afterlife. But “Heaven Is for Real” sure does a great job of laying out serious issues and presenting enough important complexities in the issue to keep you thinking throughout. The movie, taken from the real-life book by Rev. Todd Burpo, was the ideal choice for a reflective Easter matinee at Destiny USA. The couple dozen patrons sat quietly and raptly as the marvelous adaptation of Burpo’s book of the same title played out. Director Randall Wallace and screenplay writer Chris Parker have captured the magic and mystery of Burpo’s story magnificently. Burpo is a hard-working pastor at a Wesleyan church in the flat, expansive Nebraska plains. Greg Kinnear should hear his name called around nomination time for his genuine portrayal of a man who wants to help his community so much that he coaches the school wrestling team and puts out fires with the volunteer department. And Burpo wants to help his family so much that he also has a business in which he installs commercial garage doors. Times are tough economically for all, so Burpo takes trade for his services when other business owners can’t come up with the cash. We see him trucking new carpet to the firehouse. And then the unthinkable happens. Cute-as-a-button Colton, 4, takes on a high fever that lasts for days. When Burpo’s wife, Sonja, wonderfully played as compassionate and deep by Kelly Reilly, convinces Todd that they must rush Colton to the hospital, they find that the precocious child’s appendix had burst. The hours stretch as the stricken parents wait for news in the emergency room. Mom calls serious church leader Nancy Rawling, played by Margo Martindale at a total 180 from her sitcom role in “The Millers,” and asks for her to put together

a phone prayer circle. Soon the whole congregation, if not the whole town, is praying for the boy’s life. Colton comes out of it. And from here, the questions pile up, because Colton tells his dad, story by story, about what he saw when Jesus took him for a visit to heaven while he was on the operating table. Child actor Connor Corum practically steals the movie as the genuine and believable boy. But the congregation and town is polarized as news of the boy’s story spreads. The complexity of Christianity is tackled by the dynamic between child, parents and church-goers. Do people want heaven to be fully explained on earth? Do people want heaven to remain a metaphorical reward to help motivate a better life lived? The ending answers some questions for these people and this story. But it leaves the big one up to every individual in the theater. SNT

A GROWING GAP: Documentary tells story of widening income gap: The documentary film Inequality for All,

about the growing income inequality gap, the shrinking middle class and how it affects the economy and democracy, will be shown Thursday, May 1, at 7 p.m. at the Palace Theatre in Syracuse. The free screening and a panel discussion afterward are sponsored by We Are NY, a coalition of community and labor groups. Professor, author and former Labor Secretary Robert Reich narrates the film, which won an award at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. There is also a plan to show the movies at homes across the area.

Says Bad Ass of the premise, the search for immortality: “How far would we go to be remembered? For three men, the answer stems from the same root: The donation to the Icelandic Phallological Museum of its final missing specimen, a human penis.” Cinema Blend chimes in with the fact that since its founding in 1974, this museum has “collected more than 280 specimens from every kind of creature you can think of.” It gets odder. If you pre-order the BluRay DVD from Drafthouse Films before its release in mid-June, they’ll send you a bull penis, preserved in a bottle with a wax seal.

RED CROSS’ ANNUAL BAND BROUHAHA VISITS THE LANDMARK Last year the 6-year-old Rockin’ the Red Cross fundraiser took new shape when it morphed into Rockin’ the Redhouse. Bill Hider, chairman of the Redhouse board of directors and head of the fundraiser committee, realized that the transition year was tough for everyone. But this year’s event is stronger than ever. The participating corporate bands have doubled since 2013 and the venue has moved from Eastwood’s Palace Theatre to return to downtown’s Landmark Theatre. This year’s show will feature eight competitors: Six Pack (representing Anheuser-Busch), Old School (Manlius-Pebble Hill School), The Actuators (Young & Franklin/Tactair), Anonymous Sources (Syracuse Media Group), The Chillerz (Carrier Corporation), Defense Mechanism (Lockheed Martin), The Side Shifters (Raymond Corporation) and CX Dinosaurs (CXtec). “It’s a fun event,” says Hider, who expects between 1,000 and 1,200 people to turn out. “The companies are very excited about it. One just had a pep rally for the band. They set up and played nine songs and employees voted on the best three to play at the event. Others are making T-shirts with the band name on it for the audience.” That will play into one of the categories for judging — audience participation — but other awards will be given for best male and female vocalists, best instrumentalist and best look. Whoever is named best guitar player will also get to draw the winning raffle ticket for a Stratocaster (donated by the Guitar Center) valued at $1,050. “Last year was a transitional year, but we made some money and everybody had a great time,” Hider says. “The Red

Cross is a more familiar name, but money also goes into the Redhouse’s general support fund and toward the Rock Camp in the summer for teens. We use some of it for scholarships for inner-city kids and other programs.” The Redhouse Rock Camp has become an increasingly popular program in its four years of existence. Kids ages 14 to 18 join for three weeks of musicmaking where they don’t just learn how to play, but how to rock with others. The sold-out camp has become so popular, they added another camp, Little Rockers, for kids ages 6 to10. They’ve also made three different levels of Rock Camp so returning kids can move up in the ranks. “Forty percent come back,” Hider says. “And some of the kids who started four years ago are now interns helping the Little Rockers.” A Rock Camp band will also perform at the Rockin’ the Redhouse event. “When they played last year, someone from one of the companies asked who the singer was so they could hire her over the summer,” Hider says, laughing. “They wanted her to be eligible to play in their band next year.” The event will be hosted by WNTQ-FM 93.1 (93Q)’s Ted Long and Amy Robbins. Winning bands will get an evening at the Redhouse where they can invite 100 friends and perform. Second place gets a six-hour recording session. Hider also says that “everybody who attends the event gets a one-year membership to the Redhouse. A membership is worth $35 and that means discounts on the café, all events, the newsletter and invites to special events.” SNT

On Feb. 16, the Syracuse music scene lost not only a great player, but a great spirit. Michael Casale was often seen on stage with Irv Lyons and Bobby Green before that, laying ever-funky bass lines down and smiling all the while. Although he suffered from spina bifida, he didn’t let the condition interfere with his life. “I think the first time I saw him he was groovin’ on the dance floor at a Fabulous Ripcords gig just like anyone else,” Lyons recalls. “He was gettin’ down with a woman and she liked him. He had a big old smile. There was no way you weren’t gonna like Mike. There was light all around him. He was just too good to be true. It’s the way he was.” Casale, who had also been an office manager at Beat Street Music, died at age 64 after being hospitalized with pneumonia. “I loved his playing, but I loved his spirit more,” Lyons says. “I loved his zest for life. He was a class act all the way around and loved life and loved art. He embraced it all and didn’t do anything half-assed. He put his heart into everything he did. He was everyone’s brother. He was a music icon and all the musicians loved seeing him. He was an inspiration and music was good medicine for him. He’s gonna be missed.” Watch for a spina bifida benefit show in Casale’s honor this fall. — Jessica Novak

DOWNTOWN LIVING TOUR BREAKS AWAY FROM ARMORY SQUARE

T

ickets are on sale for the eighth annual Downtown Living Tour, scheduled noon to 6 p.m. Saturday, May 17. And for the first time, only one of the stops — 410 S. Clinton St. — is in Armory Square. “It’s exciting that some stops are in areas the tour has never been to before,” said Lisa Romeo, director of the tour, which is organized by the Downtown Committee of Syracuse. “It shows how much residential development is spreading.” Tour stops include: • Pike Block, 300 S. Salina St. • Dey’s Plaza, 401 S. Salina St. • Merchants Commons, 220 S. Warren St. • Former Quartier Printing building, 443 S. Warren St. • 235 E. Water St. • Creekwalk Commons, 324 W. Water St. • Former Onondaga Music Building, formerly home to Daisy Dukes, 410 S. Clinton St. • Courier Building, formerly home to L’Adour Restaurant Francais, 110 Montgomery St. • Mission Landing, 429 N. Franklin St. Tour headquarters again this year will be the Pike Block. VIP Structures Inc. is turning four underused historic buildings — The Witherill, Chamberlin, Wilson and Bond buildings — into a 130,000-square-foot mixed-use facility. The four buildings include 67 apartments, ranging in size from 650 to 1,300 square feet. Also returning to the tour this year are Dey’s Plaza and Merchants Commons. Mission Landing has also been a stop on past tours. Last year, both Merchants Commons and the Pike Block were under construction, so tour-goers this year can see the finished projects, Romeo said.

04.23.14 - 04.30.14 | syracusenewtimes.com

Some of the new stops, including 443 S. Warren St., are under construction, Romeo said. The former Quartier Printing building was built in 1920, and the space is being renovated into a multi-unit building, with two condominiums on the second and third floors. The first floor will include a private fitness room, a recreational room with pool table, and an in-house theater. Construction on 325 E. Water St., is just starting, she said, but the developers will be on hand with renderings showing what the completed project will look like. Once completed, the building will have commercial space on the first floor and loft-style apartments upstairs. The Courier Building, built in 1844, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A balcony on the Montgomery Street side where Daniel Webster gave his famous “Syracuse Speech” on May 26, 1851, is intact. Webster warned local abolitionists that aiding and abetting fugitive slaves would be considered treasonous. The ground floor will house an Ameriprise Financial office and a bistro with interior and street side seating. The upper three floors will house nine apartments ranging in size from 850 square feet to 1,350 square feet. Another new project on this year’s tour is Creekwalk Commons, 324 W. Water St., which will house up to 146 students from area colleges in 75 apartments as well as 12,000 square feet of retail space. About 3,000 people live downtown, Romeo said, in about 1,000 market-rate units. The downtown occupancy rate is 99 percent. SNT

want to bring the best people in on this.” “We leaned down to a simple model, keeping our costs low so we could do the greatest good: software, server, social media interns as managers,” Taylor said. Now they can invest in the next level. “We wanted ideas, new alternative ideas that would push boundaries. No physical costs,” Dickerson said.

How do you show people you are not here to scam them?

‘LIKES’ ARE CHEAP

J

ust when you thought liking your friend’s video of a drunk baboon on Facebook was a total waste of time, a Syracuse company steps in and makes it possible for every social action to have real, tangible, transcendent meaning.

Centscere is a tech start-up company in the Tech Garden in downtown Syracuse. It is part of the StartUp Labs program, of which Syracuse is the first participating U.S. city. Founded by three Syracuse University grads, Centscere allows users to turn every social media action on Facebook and Twitter into a monetary donation to a participating charity. As it says on the website, “if a nickel were given” for every one of the 58 million tweets tweeted per day (on average), about 4 million trees could be planted in the Amazon. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Tell us about the origins of Centscere. Where did you guys come from? “I grew up in Southern California, under the ‘Orange County curtain,’” said Ian Dickerson, CEO and co-founder. “So, when I came to Syracuse University, I was shocked by the homelessness and the poverty and wanted to help out. I wanted to put out cans at restaurants and bars but wanted to also be able to control where the money would go. I decided to bring on fellow SU students Mike Smith and Frank Taylor to the project. From there, we developed the 04.23.14 - 04.30.14 | syracusenewtimes.com

social media idea.” “It was originally going to be like a CoinStar, where shoppers deposit their loose change and then pick a charity of their choice, like a modern day soda machine,” said Taylor. “We realized quickly the overhead and work involved would be detrimental to the amount actually donated to the charities, so it developed into a software idea.” Taylor, paired with Dickerson as roommates because of their involvement in track, grew up involved in the not-for-profit world; his father had roles with the Alliance to End Hunger, Bread for the World, and Root Capital, so Taylor was a natural asset to the Centscere team. Smith was a Theta Kai fraternity brother of Dickerson’s from New Jersey, attaining his master’s degree from SU in 2013. He decided to stay with Dickerson and Taylor for the next year to jumpstart the fledgling prodigy. “It’s nice to do something that affects people other than yourself,” said Smith.

What are you going to do with $200,000? “Invest in human capital,” Dickerson said. “We

“We take 5 percent,” said Smith, “That’s loud and clear on our website. Some advisors said, ‘Take 20 percent to 50 percent,’ but we want to pass the biggest chunk possible to not-for-profits.” They also use “Stripe,” an extremely developer friendly, leading processor for payments online whose security has never been breached. “We use Rounded Co. as our developer/ design team, here in the Tech Garden,” said Smith, “They are great, and it was cool to go full circle and become paying customers after starting out just consulting with them.”

Favorite tech? Ian Dickerson: Spotify! Also “Beer Hunt” – a fun app to track the beers you drink with friends. Mike Smith: I’m a huge “Twitter-er” and enjoy getting tweets back from celebrities. Frank Taylor: iMessage: Apple’s interface is unbeatable. SNT

FASHION STUDENTS DEBUT INSPIRED COLLECTIONS: LONG DAYS, SLEEPLESS NIGHTS

T

he loud noise of Jessica Wolfe’s sewing machine is nothing compared to the ball of nerves inside of her. Beautiful mustard colored fabric is strewn about and cutouts of pieces for a jacket are meticulously lying on the table. Her other designs proudly hang nearby. She is nearly finished with her collection, yet her work will never be done. It’s that time again for the Senior Collection Fashion Show. Syracuse University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts fashion design students put on the show every spring semester. It is students’ opportunity to display their hard work with a cohesive collection of individually created designs brought together by a common theme. Wolfe, a senior in the VPA program from Rochester, has designed a collection of edgy eveningwear and unique work wear. Her inspiration comes from warm autumn color palettes and the plant life that covers building walls. Her collection remains nameless until every piece is finished. “Long days and sleepless nights, that sums preparing this collection up in five words,” Wolfe

said. “One thing I have realized is that I possess an incredible amount of work ethic. I feel as though I can accomplish anything.” Each collection consists of eight original designs from each of the 30 seniors participating in the show. This wide variety of designs is something the public and students look forward to every year. The fashion show is complete with models, hair, makeup, accessories and music. The designers choose every detail of their show. Brittany Moore, another senior VPA student from Buffalo, said her collection was inspired from two opposite forces: waves and smoke. Although things have been hectic, she is excited to take her designs from sketches into garments.

“This experience has been life-changing,” Moore said. “I have learned to plan ahead. Anything is possible as long as you put your mind to it, and all of that hard work is worth it in the end.” Fashion design majors present their senior collections at the annual on-campus fashion show with hopes that their collections are selected for the annual New York City fashion show. The show attracts area and industry professionals. Past visitors have included Oscar de la Renta, Henry Grethel, Tommy Hilfiger, Mary McFadden, Nicole Miller, Thai Nguyen, Todd Oldham, Russell Simmons and Stephanie Solomon ‘72. SNT

LOCAL DAIRY FARMERS EXPAND TO ‘HAYSEED’ FOOD

ROADSIDE GRILL IN ONONDAGA CATERS TO OUTDOOR AND TAKEOUT CROWD

A

s a caterer, Dan Seeley, executive chef and co-owner of Diamond Catering,will orchestrate many outdoor feasts and fetes this season — corporate picnics, graduation parties, weddings, class reunions, family reunions — you name it. But you don’t have to be on a guest list to sample some of Seeley’s signature spring and summertime fare. On April 14, Seeley and company debuted the Roadside Grill at Diamond Catering, then promptly had to shut it down for two days thanks to heavy rain and a (hopefully) last blast of snow.  It’s a seasonal, outdoor kitchen and takeout operation at the Diamond home base and event center, at 4221 Fay Road, in the town of Onondaga. The grill will be open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. or 7 p.m. Monday to Thursday (weather permitting), offering fan favorites and an evolving list of summer specials as the season progresses. The launch menu features lobster macaroni and cheese, a house-ground sirloin burger “po’ boy” sandwich, bourbon beef, Vidalia chicken (favorites from the summertime/seasonal menu) and a classic Central New York sausage, pepper and onion sandwich. These offerings are available on their own or as a platter, with two side dishes. Sides include salt potatoes, french fries, macaroni salad and honey

garlic baked beans. A signature salad, available on its own or with grilled chicken, spotlights the Seeleys’ homemade blueberry vinaigrette dressing, which they also have bottled and available for purchase. One of the more unusual items on the menu is Seeley’s deep-fried, “Cajun-dusted” pickle chips, served with ranch dressing. Picnic seating is available for those who want to eat on the premises. After something simple to grab and go? There are Hofmann hot dogs and coneys. Seeley plans to roll out other customer favorites as the season rolls on: chicken riggies, sauerbraten with gingersnap gravy, house-made kielbasa, chicken and biscuits, etc. Diamond Catering is at the former Morey’s Mill. The Seeleys formerly operated a restaurant at the site, the Split Rock Grille. For more information, call 487-0647 or visit www.diamondcatering.us. SNT

How do farmers spend the winter? Dairy farming is a year-round operation. So Meg, Bruce and Hugh Schader, of Wake Robin Farm, in Jordan, spent the winter milking their cows, making yogurt and cheeses and bringing their products to market (primarily, the Central New York Regional Market). They also added a small commercial kitchen in their creamery building, and have been experimenting with products that complement their dairy products: chunky “energy cookies’’ with raisins and chocolate chips to go with their milk, maple-sweetened granola to spoon on yogurt or eat on its own and breads to go with their Farmer’s Fromage, Jordan Jack, Brutus Blue and other cheeses. “We chose the name ‘Hayseed Bakery’ to reflect the simple, wholesome nature of our baked goods,’’ the Schaders said in a recent newsletter. “We consider our bakery to be an extension of our home kitchen — we don’t make anything fancy, just real, nourishing food — things that we hayseeds eat daily on our farm.’’ The Schaders have been baking on Thursdays and Fridays in order to have fresh products for sale at the farm and market on the weekends.  They are still in the “development phase’’ with baked goods and other items and welcome customer feedback and suggestions. Look for the Wake Robin stand in Shed A at the Regional Market, 2100 Park St., Syracuse, 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays. From May to October, find them in Shed C.

location,” he says. They come from Albany, Hudson Valley, Rochester, Buffalo and beyond. “Everyone is the same in the mountains.” Though the Meetup group is run by Wallace, others can contribute trip ideas, and often activities on the site span running, hiking, climbing, skiing, kayaking and more. “I’ve run some big races, marathons,” he explains. “The best mountaineers in the world train that way.” Wallace also stands by the quality of the mountains Central New Yorkers have right in their backyard. “I love anything out west,” he says. “I like it all. But the Adirondacks are some of the best. Colorado peaks are taller, but Adirondacks are tougher. Exposed roots, mud, boulders, pounding on your knee joints, endless miles. …When you’re in Colorado, it’s drier, and switchback trails — you can see where you’re going. In the Adirondacks, it’s all trees and then a summit. It’s two hours of walking in the woods wondering if you’ll ever get there. And it’s always farther than you think.” SNT

Never shying from a challenge, Wallace finds his happiness in the hills. “Once people start climbing the peaks, they’ll be sold,” he says. “It takes your soul over. For a lot of people, it becomes a goal in life. You’ll be up every weekend. That’s how it starts. And lots of those people, most of my good friends, I met in Meetup.” The New York Mountaineering Group on Meetup. com (meetup.com/newyorkmountaineering) is headed by Wallace and offers people yearning for the outdoors a way to meet others with matching interests and to organize trips of all kinds. Whether it’s camping for a weekend or hiking for a day, the site offers options for varying skill levels. “There’s always someone beginning,” he says. “You’ve got to take them under your wing.” Wallace helps newcomers learn the ropes and modifies hikes so some people can continue and others can turn back sooner. The group also draws people of diverse backgrounds, professions and parts of the state. “Most trips, no two people are from the same

SHOW US YOUR MUSCLE

T

he New York International Auto Show, which opened last weekend, is featuring plenty of family cars we’ll actually drive, with new models for Hyundai Sonata, Toyota Camry, Jeep Renegade and Suburu Outback. Fine, dependable family cars. Responsible cars. But what about the cars we want to drive? Americans love our muscle cars, with big, noisy, fuel-sucking engines. They’re CrossFit, and our family cars are Richard Simmons. Here are a few highlights from the muscle of the show: — The Koenigsegg Agera R will be on display. It looks pretty badass, but we wish we could see the Swedish carmaker’s One:1 Omega. It has 1 megawatt of power (1,341 horsepower) and a power-to-weight ratio of 1-to-1. The Swedish beast is expected to have a top speed of 441 kilometers per hour (that’s about 274 miles per hour), the carmaker reports. It’s also got a reported $1.4 million price tag. — Mercedes-Benz S63AMG 4Matic Coupe can go from 0-60 in 3.9 seconds. — Just a tad slower is the new Alfa Romeo 4C sports car. It has a four-cylinder engine but takes only a smidge over 4 seconds to go from 0-60 mph.

— The new Porsche Spyder plug-in is speedy (0-60 in just over 3 seconds) and pricey ($845,000), but maybe you’ll save a few bucks when it gets you an estimated 78 miles per gallon. — 2015 Ford Mustang, Dodge Charger, Dodge Challenger. The American classics. — 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible. This topless temptress has 625 horsepower — a lot for a convertible. The auto show runs through April 27 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City, so there’s still time to putt-putt downstate in our 10-year-old Hyundais and dream. SNT

Brace Yourselves For Some Ugly Roadwork Detours Spring has many smells: fresh dirt, new flowers, exhaust as we sit in traffic. Yep, spring means road construction season is starting again. Here are some of our larger headaches: — The West Street off-ramp from I-690 West is closed for bridge repairs until mid-May. The detour takes drivers onto North Geddes Street, where it confuses the hell out of them when one of two lanes disappears with no warning in favor of a bike lane. I-690 East drivers who want to get off at West Street will get their own special headaches when work on those lanes starts after the State Fair. — Starting June 13, all lanes of I-690 East downtown will be closed for up to 13 days to fix the bridge deck over Onondaga Creek, according to the state Department of Transportation. Traffic will be kicked off I-690 East at the West and West Genesee Street exits, and downtown streets may be an ugly snarl. At the risk of sounding like the class suck-up, we will point out that it’s a good thing our roads and bridges are getting fixed. Just think about that while you sit in traffic. SNT

 ARIES (March 21-April 19) If for some inexplicable reason you are

not simmering with new ideas about how you could drum up more money, I don’t know what to tell you -- except that maybe your mother lied to you about exactly when you were born. The astrological omens are virtually unequivocal: If you are a true Aries, you are now being invited, teased and even tugged to increase your cash flow and bolster your financial know-how. If you can’t ferret out at least one opportunity to get richer quicker, you might really be a Pisces or Taurus. And my name is Jay Z.

 TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You remind me of a garden plot that has recently been plowed and rained on. Now the sun is out. The air is warm. Your dirt is wet and fertile. The feeling is a bit unsettled because the stuff that was below ground got churned up to the top. Instead of a flat surface, you’ve got furrows. But the overall mood is expectant. Blithe magic is in the air. Soon it will be time to grow new life. Oh, but just one thing is missing: The seeds have yet to be sewn. That’s going to happen very soon. Right?

psychospiritual version of that supreme pleasure. You have been gathering and storing up raw materials for soul-making, and now the time has come to express them with a creative splash. Are you ready to purge your emotional backlog? Are you brave enough to go in search of cathartic epiphanies? What has been dark will yield light.

 SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) The potential turning points that might

possibly erupt in the coming days will not become actual turning points unless you work hard to activate them. They will be subtle and brief, so you will have to be very alert to notice them at all, and you will have to move quickly before they fade away. Here’s another complication: These incipient turning points probably won’t resemble any turning points you’ve seen before. They may come in the form of a lucky accident, a blessed mistake, a happy breakdown, a strange healing, a wicked gift or a perfect weakness.

 SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) If you happen to be an athlete,

 CANCER (June 21-July 22) Would you

like to forge new alliances and expand your web of connections and get more of the support you need to fulfill your dreams? You are entering the Season of Networking, so now would indeed be an excellent time to gather clues on how best to accomplish all that good stuff. To get you started in your quest, here’s advice from Dale Carnegie: “You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.”

 LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Does Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt run faster

than any person alive? As far as we know, yes. He holds three world records and has won six Olympic gold medals. Even when he’s a bit off his game, he’s the best. At the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics, he set the all-time mark for the 100-meter race -- 9.69 seconds -- despite the fact that one of his shoelaces was untied and he slowed down to celebrate before reaching the finish line. Like you, Bolt is a Leo. I’m making him both your role model and your anti-role model for the foreseeable future. You have the power to achieve something approaching his levels of excellence in your own field -- especially if you double-check to make sure your shoelace is never untied and especially if you don’t celebrate victory before it’s won.

 VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) In his unpublished book The Dictionary of

Obscure Sorrows, John Koenig coins new words that convey experiences our language has not previously accounted for. One that may apply to you sometime soon is “trumspringa,” which he defines as “the temptation to step off your career track and become a shepherd in the mountains, following your flock between pastures with a sheepdog and a rifle, watching storms at dusk from the doorway of a small cabin.” To be overtaken by trumspringa doesn’t necessarily mean you will literally run away and be a shepherd. In fact, giving yourself the luxury of considering such wild possibilities may be a healing release that allows you to be at peace with the life you are actually living.

 LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) “The supreme pleasure we can know,”

Freud said, “and the model for all pleasure, orgasmic pleasure, comes when an excess tension built up, confined, compacted, is abruptly released.” That’s an observation by philosopher Alphonso Lingis. I bring it to your attention, Libra, because I expect that you will soon be able to harvest a

Here’s an excerpt from “Celestial Music,” a poem by Louise Gluck: “I’m like the child who buries/ her head in the pillow/ so as not to see, the child who tells herself/ that light causes sadness.” One of your main assignments in the coming weeks, Gemini, is not to be like that child. It’s true that gazing at what the light reveals may shatter an illusion or two, but the illumination you will be blessed with will ultimately be more valuable than gold.

T

 GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

the coming week will not be a good time to headbutt a referee or take performance-enhancing drugs. If you hate to drive your car anywhere but in the fast lane, you will be wise to try the slower lanes for a while. If you are habitually inclined to skip steps, take short cuts and look for loopholes, I advise you to instead try being thorough, methodical and by-the-book. Catch my drift? In this phase of your astrological cycle, you will have a better chance at producing successful results if you are more prudent than usual. What? A careful, discreet, strategic, judicious Sagittarius? Sure! Why not?

 CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) My interpretation of this week’s astrological data might sound eccentric, even weird. But you know what? Sometimes life is -- or at least should be -- downright unpredictable. After much meditation, I’ve concluded that the most important message you can send to the universe is to fly a pair of underpants from the top of a flagpole. You heard me. Take down the flag that’s up there, and run the skivvies right up to the top. Whose underpants should you use? Those belonging to someone you adore, of course. And what is the deeper meaning behind this apparently irrational act? What exactly is life asking from you? Just this: Stop making so much sense all the time -- especially when it comes to cultivating your love and expressing your passion.  AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You need to take some time out to

explore the deeper mysteries of snuggling, cuddling and nuzzling. In my opinion, that is your sacred duty. It’s your raison d’etre, your ne plus ultra, your sine qua non. You’ve got to nurture your somatic wisdom with what we in the consciousness industry refer to as yummy warm fuzzy wonder love. At the very least, you should engage in some prolonged hugging with a creature you feel close to. Tender physical touch isn’t just a luxury; it’s a necessity.

 PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Your body contains about 4 octillion

atoms. That’s four with 27 zeroes after it. Believe it or not, 200 billion of that total were once inside the body of Martin Luther King Jr. For that matter, an average of 200 billion atoms of everyone who has ever lived and died is part of you. I am not making this up. (See the mathematical analysis here: http://tinyurl.com/AtomsFromEveryone.) As far as your immediate future is concerned, Pisces, I’m particularly interested in that legacy from King. If any of his skills as a great communicator are alive within you, you will be smart to call on them. Now is a time for you to express high-minded truths in ways that heal schisms, bridge gaps and promote unity. Just proceed on the assumption that it is your job to express the truth with extra clarity, candor and grace.

FACE TIME

Kellie Gingold owns Showoffs Boutique, 264 W. Jefferson St., in Syracuse’s Armory Square. Gingold will be honored as Woman of the TAKE Year on Thursday, April 24, 5 p.m. at City Hall Commons, 201 E. Washington St., Syracuse. This is the fourth year the Syracuse Commission for Women has given the award.

QUICK

By Renée K. Gadoua

Tell me about your business. I’ve been running Showoffs Boutique for 16 years, 12 of them in Armory Square. I used to do two segments a month on Bridge Street with Julie Abbott. It allowed me to get to know my potential customers better as I heard about their real women’s lives. Do you consider yourself a retailer or a fashion stylist? Being a stylist is the most rewarding part of the business. I like to show people how to look their best and help them to let their inner beauty come out. How did you get interested in style? I always wanted to be Barbie. My mother used to say to say, “You can’t be Barbie. No one is that perfect.” But she shows you can be good at a lot of things and look good. You know you’re not going to convince a lot of feminists of that view. Barbie gets a bad rap. She shows people you can do anything you want and still look good. I like the idea of being pretty and feminine. I want women to learn how to do that and think they’re pretty. I like putting it all together. There’s no greater compliment than when a customer says she feels good about the way she looks.

The Syracuse Commission for Women has named Kellie Gingold 2014 Syracuse Woman of the Year. Gingold was selected for her volunteer work on fundraisers including the Breakfast at Tiffany’s Fashion Show, benefiting Hope for Heather; Race for the Cure; Manlius Pebble Hill After Prom Party: Pimped, benefiting the American Heart Association; and Ronald McDonald House Charity Fashion Show.

So you won’t judge me for having a closet full of black jackets? No. Just break it up with some color. Black is easy. Men love color. Women are way behind on that. How does your business connect with your charitable work? Sometimes it directly connects, and sometimes it doesn’t. It’s nice when it ties back to what I’m doing on a daily basis and what I’m good at. The challenge is nice when it’s not tied in. It allows me to meet other people I wouldn’t have met. What’s the favorite charity event you’ve helped organize? Breakfast at Tiffany’s, definitely. I love that event. When you start hearing stories about people affected by ovarian cancer, you hear how their insight has changed them to look more at the positive. We can educate people about this in a fun way by watching this movie with people who have survived. Ovarian cancer is a silent killer. What do you like about organizing fundraisers?

So you don’t have to look schlumpy when you go to Wegmans on Sunday?

There should be a goal at the end. If we can give back, we should. Everyone has a component they can give. They can design a flier or help set up or give money. Everyone can do something. It’s people helping people. We’re setting that example for our children.

You can wear yoga pants and look good. Look at Lululemon (an online athletic clothing retailer). There’s a way to be comfortable and still be fashion forward. When you do that, you put a spring in your step and you feel better.

What are your thoughts on the need for Women’s History Month to recognize the achievements of women and the places where there’s still inequity?

Who is your ideal customer? I enjoy dressing everybody. She doesn’t have to be a certain age or a certain size. My ideal customer is open to trying something new. I’m all about using those pieces you own and breaking it up with something new.

Women supporting women should start in the sandbox. Everyone needs their best girlfriends. The idea of women helping women is a lifetime process. It’s nice when you can carry your friends from the sandbox your whole life and make other friends. That’s what my fundraising projects are about. It’s women helping women. None of these projects would be possible without women helping women. SNT

BLACK IS THE NEW ORANGE

O

K, not black, exactly. More like gray. But we’re not crazy about gray, as a color. Or about white. Even an excess of blue is … too much

Frankly, as a color, we’re not all that crazy about orange, either. But tradition being what it is, this was the reaction around the office to those new uniforms for the SU football team: “They look like crap.” Now, we all know change is hard. And inevitable. And when the inevitable comes, as adults we need to cope with it. To adjust. To show a little flexibility. To reorient our world view to accommodate … new perspectives. But what’s even harder than change is change for change’s sake. Because, let’s face it, there’s another color at play in those new Nike duds. Green. It’s about the money. Isn’t it always, these days? Turns out the same universities that have discovered that television networks will pay them millions of dollars to broadcast their football and basketball games have discovered that the great masses of fans outfitted in fan gear will hit the stores to replace that gear with new gear. That McNabb jersey is so … ’90s. And those new jerseys are so … not orange. How can the Orange not be orange? But when you multiply (a) the great numbers of

fans by (b) the exorbitant prices of team gear you get (c) enough money to build a new stadium down by Erie Boulevard. It’s not just SU, of course. Pro football teams have throwback jerseys. Pro hockey teams have “third” jerseys. Pro basketball teams change their colors at the drop of a jump shot. And every time a new uniform variation is introduced, you can hear the stampede of fans to the pro shops to update their wardrobes. Ka-ching. There was a day — forgive us for waxing nostalgic here — when college athletics was about the competition of amateur athletes, young men and women defending honor and the alma mater on the athletic fields. Everybody sing: “Flag we love! Orange! Float for aye-” Alas, those days are gone. Now Nike comes to campus, and the next thing you know … gray uniforms. But it could be worse. If we truly honored the storied SU tradition, if the university’s colors had never changed, the “Orange” would be wearing rose pink and pea green. And our reaction to those colors would be black and white, too. SNT
