ARE CITY TEACHERS SAFE?
The district, employees and parents wrestle with discipline and academics By Ed Griffin-Nolan
What to do? Look inside!
ON THE RECORD Fans of horoscopes — of all signs — are in for a good week. It’s not the stars that tell me that. It’s the restoration of Rob Brezny’s Free Will Astrology to the New Times. A few weeks ago, we decided to test what had become conventional wisdom around here: that the horoscope feature in the paper was among the most popular things we print. We never really know if such “truths” are true; it’s not like we have the resources to poll readers in any scientific way, or to do much in the way of market research. So, we dropped the horoscope and waited to see what would happen. We didn’t have readers wielding storming the New Times building. But we heard from readers. We heard from readers on behalf of other readers. We heard from readers we didn’t expect to hear from — people we thought were too … well … sophisticated to spend time with a horoscope. By phone. In person. In messages left with the receptionist here. In messages left on voicemail. We heard. You know, we’ve conducted another, similar experiment. I’ve been a huge fan of The Straight Dope since I discovered the column decades ago. Photography by Cecil Adams and his band Michael Davis, of quirky researchers make me laugh Cover design by Natalie Davis out loud. When I came on board at the New Times, it didn’t take long for it to occur to me, “Hey, I’m the editor of an alt-weekly. I can bring The Straight Dope to Syracuse!” I did. And a few weeks ago, we dropped it and waited for What’s buzzing the reaction from readers. the most. Crickets. Personally, I’d take Straight Dope a hundred times before a horoscope.

Curses, Foiled Again
Police investigating the burglary of a restaurant in San Mateo, Calif., arrested Keveen Quintanilla, 31, after he stopped to flirt with bartender Ashleigh Cullen, 22, who was taking out the recycling. “He said he’d seen me around and wanted to hang out, which was strange since it was already 1 a.m. when he approached me,” Cullen said. After she realized the restaurant had been burglarized, she gave police Quintanilla’s name and phone number. Pretending to be Cullen, officers texted the suspect and arranged a date, then arrested him when he showed up. (San Jose’s KNTV-TV)
Poison centers across the country report a surge in calls involving e-cigarettes, from one per month in September 2010 to 215 per month this February, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. More than half the calls involve children younger than 6 who swallow liquid nicotine, which is heated to create vapors. The highly toxic substance is readily available on store shelves in flavors that include bubble gum, chocolate mint and cherry. Urging against “a knee-jerk reaction” to the numbers, Cynthia Cabrera, executive director of the Smoke-Free Alternative Trade Association, said the benefits many consumers claimed to get from using e-cigarettes must be weighed against the relatively small number of accidental incidents linked to them. (The Washington Post)
When Guns Are Outlawed
Police reported that a man tried to rob a convenience store in Providence, R.I., by pretending a potato was a gun. After the manager chased him off with a baseball bat, police received a call from a coin-operated laundry where a man fitting the description entered carrying a potato and yelled, “I need the money.” A worker gave the man $20 from a decoy cash register, and he left. (Associated Press)
Heimlich Mishap or Suicide Attempt?
A 51-year-old man was hospitalized after he entered a restaurant in Wichita, Kan., began stuffing his mouth with “handfuls of pork” and nearly choked to death, police Capt. Doug Nolte said, adding that authorities weren’t sure why anyone would walk into a restaurant and begin eating pork. (The Wichita Eagle)

Ray Moore, a candidate for lieutenant governor in South Carolina, said he favors replacing public schools with churchrun schools because “we don’t see anything in the Bible about state education.” Moore said that if enough Christian families withdrew their children from public schools, which he calls “the Pharaoh’s schools,” and educate them at home or enroll them in religious schools, states would be compelled to hand over control of education to churches, families and private associations — “the way it was,” Moore declared, “for the first 200 years of American history.” (The Raw Story)
Power to the Power
Duke Energy anticipates hiking its rates to cover environmental cleanup in Carolina and Indiana, which Duke Chief Financial Officer Steve Young pointed out “have a strong record of allowing utilities to recover costs related to environmental compliance investments.” Cost recovery means charging customers rather than taking costs out of company profits, which would lower earnings for shareholders, among them Gov. Pat McCrory, who has received more than $1 million in campaign donations from the utility. (Raleigh’s WRAL-TV)

in addition to the $40 million they made taxing Doritos.

Now all he has to do is get back to Earth.” — Seth Meyers “People are still fighting about immigration. Congress is suing the president.

Employees got suspicious when they noticed something in a Wal-Mart that was made in America.” — Conan O’Brien “An Oregon man called Portland police Monday to report that traffic was being held up by a chicken attempting to cross a road. Then on Tuesday, he called back to report a priest and a rabbi walking into a bar.” — Seth Meyers

Police accused Donald Adams of theft after he took several items from a Home Depot store in Lancaster, Pa., to the customer service desk and claimed he had purchased them and needed to return them without a receipt.

TRUMPED UP BENGHAZI CONSPIRACY HAUNTS U.S. POLICY
ou remember that moment. The first time you hold your baby in your arms. You pick up the little darling, gaze into his or her eyes, and say, “Someday you can help provide close air support for the Yazidis fleeing ISIS on Mount Sinjar.” Maybe not. Who among us knew that there was a monotheistic religious group in Iraq that believed the Creator had entrusted the planet to seven angels, chief among them the Peacock Angel, not to be confused, as some of their detractors have alleged, with the fallen Angel Satan of Biblical fame. Well, there is. And now the president of the United States, if his own words are to be believed, is hell bent on protecting the Yazidi religious minority from what Obama labels as genocide at the hands of the undeniably terroristic Islamic State of Syria. Don’t believe it. The Yazidi may well be imperiled, but it is hardly the case that Obama initiated bombing raids over Iraq merely to save the followers of the Peacock Angel. According to an Aug. 8 New York Times story — tinyurl.com/mjgopkc — the President and his advisers, as they contemplated what to do about Iraq, had one eye on Mount Sinjar, one eye on Capitol
Hill and their third eye (policy makers have to have at least three eyes) looking in the rearview mirror at Benghazi. Benghazi? Why should a 2012 attack on a consular office in Libya play a prominent role in decisions about how to respond to a 2014 offensive by ISIS across central and northern Iraq? Because the state of our domestic politics has become so frenetic that anyone with a cause and a camera can hijack a debate over even important matters such as genocide and regional security. To be fair to Obama, there was an outside chance that if the Sunni militants made their way through Peshmerga lines they might have put a U.S. consular office in jeopardy. But if that were the concern, there still was time to evacuate the Erbil consular office ahead of the ISIS advance. To be fair to the president’s critics, the events leading up to the killing of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others on Sept. 11, 2012, and the aftermath
deserved serious scrutiny. But there have been at least eight investigations of Benghazi. Still House Republicans insist on launching yet another, and the GOPled House Select Committee on Benghazi can’t wait until Congress comes back into session to once again relive the Benghazi affair. This in spite of a report from the Republican-led House Intelligence Committee that found no sign of a conspiracy, neglect or intelligence failures. Nonetheless, Fox News talking head Jeanine Pirro, the teleprompter-challenged former Westchester County DA whom New York voters had the good sense to reject when she ran for attorney general after her campaign to defeat Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton imploded, insists that Obama’s “dereliction of duty” is grounds for his impeachment. Since we forced President Richard Nixon from office for abuse of power in covering up a burglary and impeached President Bill Clinton for lying about a blowjob, she argues, why shouldn’t we impeach Obama for “not protecting and defending Americans in the bloodbath known as Benghazi?” Yes, the bloodbath. The problem is that the conspiracy theorists have tried time and time again to prove this assertion, to no avail. The latest Benghazi report, released by the House Intelligence Committee and approved by a unanimous and bi-partisan vote, took nearly two years to study the matter, and concluded: “This report shows that there was no intelligence failure surrounding the Benghazi attacks. … Our investigation found the intelligence community warned about an increased threat environment, but did not have specific tactical warning of an attack before it happened … which is consistent with testimony that the attacks appeared to be opportunistic.” And in debating long-discredited conspiracies, we take our eye off the one lesson from the Benghazi tragedy that might have relevance to the decision regarding the Yazidis. From the Times’ study and the committee report comes this frightening fact: The group that attacked our consulate in Benghazi was not al-Qaida, but rather a militia group that the U.S. had aided with air strikes to prevent their slaughter by Muammar Gaddafi troops. You can’t use that conclusion to point fingers, but it is enough to make you think twice when we hear a president once again talking about surgical strikes in pursuit of humanitarian goals. SNT

yracuse Chiefs Manager Billy Gardner Jr. is a true baseball lifer. He grew up around baseball because his father, former major league infielder Billy Gardner Sr., managed in the minors and then the majors with the Minnesota Twins and Kansas City Royals. After two years as a minor league player, Billy became a coach and has been a minor league manager for the past 20 years.
This is Gardner’s first year in Triple-A, and with less than two weeks remaining in the regular season, he has the Chiefs positioned for their first playoff appearance since 1998. New Times reporter Matt Michael recently sat down with Gardner to talk. Matt Michael (MM): What are the qualities you learned from your father that you still apply today? Billy Gardner Jr. (BG): I took a lot of things from him: the ability to connect with people; to be outgoing around the clubhouse; cutting up with the guys. He had spent a lot of time in the minor leagues, and that’s where he honed his craft. MM: Why has this been such a special year for the Chiefs? BG: I think they all, from the get-go, had a common goal in mind and that was to go out and compete and win the division and get to the championship. We have great chemistry in the clubhouse, and we have really solid veteran leadership in the clubhouse. I think the biggest thing with this team is they get along so well, they pull for each other, they play hard, they compete, they play to the last out, and as a manager, that’s what you want.
MM: Have you thought about what it would be like to coach or manage in the major leagues? BG: I’ve never looked at that. If it happens, great, and if it doesn’t, I really enjoy the teaching part down here. I enjoy the minor leagues, I have fun, it’s teaching and trying to make a kid better and getting him to the big leagues. I know some guys that spend a lot of time in the minor leagues and they get a little disenchanted because they haven’t had an opportunity, and I get that. But I don’t spend too much time worrying about it. MM: So your reward is calling a player into your office and telling him he’s moving up the next level — in this case, the major leagues? BG: That’s the payback we have as coaches. You see a guy that you touched and he got better and you see him go to the big leagues, and that’s the payback we get. To read the complete interview, visit www.syracusenewtimes. com. SNT
Billy Gardner Jr. is looking to become the first manager to lead the Chiefs to the International League championship since Bobby Cox in 1976. Last month, Cox became the first former Chief in the modern era to be inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame, in Cooperstown (Cox played for the Chiefs in 1970 and managed Syracuse from 1973-76). “Sunny Jim” Bottomley, who played for the Chiefs in 1938 after his major league career ended, is the only other former Chief in the Hall of Fame. 08.20.14 - 08.26.14 | syracusenewtimes.com

Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney and Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner have appeared on The Campbell Conversations program before. This is the last of three parts in which they participate together. This week, they discuss leadership and politics in Syracuse. Grant Reeher (GR): The two of you are in second terms. How are the leadership challenges different in the second term as opposed to the first? Joanie Mahoney (JM): In politics, there is a shelf-life. People think you are the greatest thing since sliced bread for a minute, and then they hate you. So I think it becomes more difficult to sell your ideas as time goes by. Everybody clamors for change, but when you try to make change or want change, they don’t. I have enjoyed a real amount of encouragement and loyalty from the people who elected me, and I don’t want to exaggerate, but I am in a good place. But as time goes by, my advice to anybody who gets into this business is to learn as much as you can as quickly as you can and hit the ground running, because as time goes by, it does get more difficult to do the job. Stephanie Miner (SM): I think there is a tremendous window when you first get in to implement change, and then it does become harder. That’s why they talk about honeymoon periods. What we are also experiencing as leaders is a change in the media. You used to be able to go to the media and say, “OK, here’s my idea and here’s why I think it’s a good idea and here’s why I think we would benefit.” But now it has become so diffused — you lose that vessel of the Fourth Estate, and it becomes very difficult to implement change. GR: Each of you has had conflicts with your respective legislatures. SM: I thought you were going to say “spouses” (laughs). GR: We don’t go there on this program; we aim higher than that. But you’ve had conflicts with your respective legislatures, even among those of your own party. What have you learned from those conflicts?
SM: I think conflict and change go hand in hand. And when you are a full-time executive, you are with these facts and circumstance and issues 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A part-time legislature comes in and out and chooses issues they want to be very active on and which they don’t. So, what I have learned is that I need to take more time to explain the rationale behind these policies, because I was assuming that they knew as much as I did, and I was really forgetting the fact that I’m full-time and they are part-time, and most of them have other jobs. And even though I am saying one thing to one person, it doesn’t mean that it is automatically disseminated to all the others in the same way that I have explained it. JM: My relationship has gotten better over time, and I have learned some of the same things that the mayor just said. You have to take the time to say what it is you are trying to do. We have a chairman of legislature right now, Ryan McMahon, who came from the Syracuse City Council. I’m not sure when the last time you had a city councilor take over as chairman of the
08.20.14 - 08.26.14 | syracusenewtimes.com
county legislature. There was a real city-versus-county when I got here. I came here saying that the city is part of the county, and we are all in this together, but the legislature wasn’t there. Now, with this new chairman, with this new legislature, my relationship has gotten a lot better. But I have learned along the way that I can do better in terms of communicating what it is I am trying to do, and so far, so good. GR: Everyone who follows politics says that relationships are incredibly important for making the system work well. Your own relationship, however, seems to get a different kind of scrutiny. SM: Because we are both women? GR: Well, why do you think it is such a dissected topic? JM: It might have to do with the history and the fact that there was always this city and county thing. We had the city suing the county, the county probably suing the city, and there was this battle. I think it was a big difference for people to have a city mayor and a county executive that were cooperating. Out of respect for the voters, I have committed to working with anybody that the voters send. The voters don’t send Stephanie Miner and send me, and hope that we will prevent each other from getting anything done. The voters have elected Stephanie Miner. I happen to have lucked out, because we had a previous relationship, we were friends. There is a level of trust, we could work together. But I will work with whoever the voters send to me to work with. That’s my job. And I don’t understand on the federal level, how you can count as a win preventing the other side from accomplishing anything. GR: But the media constantly cover your relationship, and the ongoing story is, “Are they getting along?” JM: There was actually an article in (The Post-Standard) that quoted the mayor saying that our relationship is fine, quoted me as saying that it is fine, but the article and the headline was that our relationship was not fine. GR: I remember that piece. JM: It’s ridiculous. GR: I would think that then generates a lot of talk among political people about the relationship, and I would also think that creates some of its own stresses on the relationship, regardless of how things are going. Has that been a challenge? SM: It hasn’t been for me. I think that Joanie and I benefit from being local government officials. We don’t have the option of running away to someplace and not dealing with our constituents. We see them in the grocery store, we see them when we are out on the street getting lunch, getting dinner, having coffee. When you are held accountable the second

I have been assured that it is safe, but almost every email that I have gotten has been slow down, slow down, slow down. No wonder it takes us so long in government to get anything done. GR: A reform of perennial interest is campaign financing, and the state is trying to have a very limited experiment with it this year in the comptroller’s race. What authority do local governments have to try things in this arena, and have you ever considered proposing something? you walk out of your door in the morning to the second you walk in your door, you have a sense of “I have got to get these things done.” What I have always respected and found really beneficial working with Joanie is she will tell you what she’s thinking, why she is thinking that and how are we going to move forward. And when you have that in any relationship, but particularly in a political Grant Reeher hosts relationship, it just makes it so much WRVO Public easier to get decisions made and to Media’s program move forward.

GR: What are the biggest shortcomings of the political decision-making process in this region? SM: I think that there are people who want change, and everybody says that they want change, but it is always a fight to get people to take the inherent risk that change brings with it. And it is a fight against the cynicism that is deeply held in this community about where we are going and where our future is. JM: The best example that I have is recent. Things take forever in politics and in government. This amphitheater project that we are trying to build — the criticism is I am going too fast, and it is mind-boggling to me. This piece of land that we are talking about building on, you would be hardpressed to find another piece of land in the country that has been more studied and more documented. We had to go through all of the federal and state processes to do the loop-the-lake trail that goes over the property right now. I personally sat down with the top EPA official in this region, and we had a one-on-one conversation. I said, “I am a mother of children who are going to
JM: I actually wrote the dissent with eight other people in the Moreland Commission against the public financing for this state cycle, and it is because of the Supreme Court’s decisions that have come down that have corporations being treated as people and the free speech implications. Given that reality, I think you are throwing good money after bad by just pouring more money into the current system that we have. It will be interesting to see what comes of this, but we didn’t have a whole bunch of candidates clamor to run simply because there was public financing. It was one of the things we thought would come from public financing, we’d get far more people. That has not happened and six-to-one matches on a maximum of $175 is nothing compared to what corporations are able to put into campaigns. To take hard-working taxpayer money and pour it into a system that’s going to be expensive for taxpayers and at the same time a drop in the bucket for the overall costs, has led me to think that this is not the solution. I haven’t looked at it at a local level. I don’t know what authority we would have. We probably would need state permission to do that, because it might be considered a gift. GR: But there is not going to be the same level of outside money coming in for local races as you would see in a statewide race. SM: They are subject to a state law that dictates what the campaign maximums are. We couldn’t change that law or do a pilot program here without breaking the state law or having the state change the law just for us. GR: You couldn’t even do a voluntary public matching? SM: I don’t believe so. The state law is very specific about that. Campaign finance is controlled by the Board of Elections and New York state law. JM: There are people that have very good intentions, but the playing field is not what they think it is. (The idea) that if we got public finance we are going to solve all of the mess that campaign finance has created, I haven’t been convinced that that is the solution. SM: I think money is a pernicious factor in politics, and raising it is not one of my favorite things to do, but I will do it. But as the county executive points out, the Supreme Court had been pretty clear. Money is speech. And when they set that down, a mayor from Syracuse and a county executive can’t do a run around it.

SAFETY IN THE SCHOOLS Will a new code of conduct help?
Percentage of city teachers who live in the city.
1,900 Number of teachers in the Syracuse City School District.
Number of people of color employed as teachers in the district.
Teachers and parents have been talking with writer Ed Griffin-Nolan about the state of Syracuseâ€™s schools. One question: Even if the number of violent incidents is stable, are they getting worse? Michael Davis Photographs
ith two weeks left ’til school starts,” says Bill Scott, a former school social worker who is now a vice president with the Syracuse Teachers Association (STA), “the clock is ticking.” Scott is talking about the new code of conduct proposed for the city schools, which has been much discussed but not yet approved by the Syracuse Board of Education. The revised code, which includes elements supported by both teachers and parent advocates, was to be on the agenda for a community-wide summit scheduled for last week at Fowler High School, then was canceled days after it was announced. Teacher training regarding the new code is set for later this month, but, according to School Board President Michelle Mignano, the state attorney general has requested three points of clarification before the office will approve the new code. With no school board meetings scheduled until Sept. 11, it is unclear just what the training will include. The new school year looms after a raucous spring that culminated in a teacher walkout from a June board meeting after the STA declared that 95 percent of teachers had lost confidence in the superintendent. The episode once again revealed a split in the community that, if the optics are to be believed, reflects a deeper racial divide. Mayor Stephanie Miner vowed at the time to bring the union and the superintendent together, but after one meeting, that effort appeared to go nowhere. Most teacher complaints revolve around the issue of discipline and student behavior. Multiple reports have charged the district with being heavy-handed and discriminatory in its dealing with student misconduct. At the center of the controversy is Superintendent Sharon Contreras. When Contreras came to Syracuse three years ago, she told the public that she wasn’t coming here to manage a school system but to transform it. With the unanimous backing of the Board of Education and a rousing endorsement from Say Yes to Education, which paid for the search that led to her selection, there was palpable hope that a district plagued by failing schools and a low graduation rate was about to turn a corner. Expectations were high. At the time, student performance was the issue, and student behavior was rarely mentioned. That has changed. As students in the Syracuse City School District get ready to head back to their classrooms, Contreras finds
The Proposed Code of Conduct Key provisions: The goal of the new code is to foster “promotion, prevention and intervention.” — Prepare all staff to prevent, minimize and defuse most disciplinary problems. — Provide coordinated care and interventions that match students’ social and emotional needs. The approach is “accountable and restorative.” — Behavioral interventions will support a restorative rather than a punitive orientation. The plan calls for establishment in each school of a behavior intervention center, which is a hybrid of in-school suspension and social work.

Slulami Wulah worked for the Syracuse City Schools for 15 years, most recently at McCarthy school. According to Wulah, he was let go after he defended himself from an attack by a student on Jan. 15, 2014. He blames the violence in the schools on a reduction in support programs for unruly students. “Once Beard and VINTA (Violence is Not the Answer) progams ended, all hell broke loose. Then you start placing kids back in schools they had no reason to be in.”
“In spite of the extraordinarily high suspension rate, the schools are no safer than before, nor are they getting significantly better academic results, on average. ” herself at the center of a debate on student behavior and discipline that has pitted teachers against administrators, parents against teachers and, at times, blacks against whites. The city remains sharply divided over the dimensions of violence in the schools, the reasons it exists and what to do about it. Yet suspension rates during the Contreras years are not much different than they were before. According to statistics presented by the district, the out-of-school suspension rate for all Syracuse city school students, grades K-12, has hovered around 20 percent going back at least as far as 2006. Disciplinary referrals, which essentially means a teacher has sent a kid to the office, have not increased notably, either. Almost everyone agrees that the suspension rate is too high, and that a small percentage of students are creating most of the problems. Long-time advocates in the African-American community, most vocally Walt Dixie and Twiggy Billue, argue that suspension of young people is the start of a “pipeline to prison” that results in high levels of incarceration, especially for African-American males. Scott and teachers belonging to the advocacy group Be the Change want more help for troubled students, but they insist that disruptive students be removed from the classroom to permit others to learn. Be the Change formed in February of this year and has nearly 700 members. In June, the state Attorney General’s Office announced that Syracuse schools suspend a higher percentage of its pupils than almost any other district in the nation, that the district fails to train its staff adequately on proper disciplinary procedures and SCHOOLS

that discipline is practiced in ways that discriminates against non-white students and students with disabilities. On July 10, the district signed an agreement with the state which, without disputing or affirming the AG’s findings, commits the school system to a series of corrective measures. Those measures include hiring an internal ombudsman and an independent monitor to track the disparities in discipline. At press time, the school district had yet to confirm whether these positions had been filled. The AG report came on the heels of an earlier study conducted by UCLA professor Daniel Losen. The district, according to Losen, suspends nearly one in eight elementary students for at least a day, and when discipline is handed out, minority kids are likely to face discrimination. In secondary school, a black student stands double the chance of being suspended as his or her white classmate. What has changed, say many teachers, is the level and severity of violence in the schools. In spite of the high rate of suspensions, teachers complain that administrators don’t do enough to help them with unruly students. Scott describes what he calls “a culture of fear” in schools. Teachers, even many with tenure, are unwilling to speak on the record about their experiences, but dozens if not hundreds have joined Be the Change and shared their stories online. In interviews, more than a dozen teachers, parents, and students gave compelling first hand accounts of school violence. Just last week, the state Education Department included Danforth and Lincoln middle schools on its list of “persistently dangerous schools.” The district disputes the designation, but there is no disputing that Syracuse schools represent half of all the upstate schools on the list. This designation highlights a central failing that Losen pointed out in his June 6 report: In spite of the extraordinarily high suspension rate, the schools are no safer than before, nor are they getting significantly better academic results, on average. Scott, who served as a social worker in two city schools before taking his union post, was one of the leaders of the group that first made public stories of teachers injured on the job. His
father, retired teacher and administrator William Scott Sr., convened a group of teachers earlier this year to discuss the issues and problems. A number of them told tales of being attacked by students who, they say, were given minimal consequences for their actions. One teacher with eight years of experience, who asked that her name not be published, was grabbed by the hair and “pummeled” by a sixth-grade pupil in October 2012. “She dragged me to the hallway, took me down to the cement floor, kicked me all over the place,” she said. The attack went on for 15 minutes, until her screams came to the attention of the building principal, Dean DeSantis, who came running from downstairs. DeSantis is now in charge of seven city schools included in a group of schools known as the Innovation Zones. “I didn’t sleep for weeks,” says the teacher. She went to the hospital with bruises but no broken bones. Because the child was under 16, no charges were filed. She claims that the pupil, who was taken home after police were called, was allowed to return to school the next day. Only after her husband called attorneys and public officials, she says, did the district agree to send the pupil to another school. This teacher was given a leave of absence but returned to school to teach the next day. The pupil began calling her at school, “saying she’s going to kill me, calling me a bitch.” She called police again to charge harassment but was told that no charges could be filed because of the pupil’s age. The teacher requested a transfer and was moved to Porter Elementary School. Three weeks into the 2013-14 school year, she suffered a breakdown. “I don’t know what happened to me,” she said. “I couldn’t do it. I was overwhelmed, anxious. The language, the kids kicking, chairs being thrown, kids spitting on me.” She and others contend that when she referred offending pupils to the office, “they came back with a piece of candy and a crown on their head.”
“In October 2013, the district reported that 70 teachers or other staff filed claims for injuries resulting from incidents with students. ”
Stories of lenient treatment for offending students are commonplace among members of Be the Change. The new code of conduct refers to a “restorative justice” approach some teachers fear will not adequately address the problem of persistently disruptive students. Be the Change leaders are dismissive of charges that their problems stem from subtle racism. One teacher assistant with nearly 15 years of experience in the district, who is African-American, insisted that the behavior problems are pervasive and growing. “Our (English as a Second Language) kids are acting up,” she says. “They see the other kids act up and get away with it. There’s never been a history of ESL students acting up.” She also declined to be identified publicly. The school board minutes for the meeting in March include some alarming figures on the dangers facing teachers. Data released at that meeting depicts a huge spike in workers compensation claims involving incidents with students in the fall of 2013. The number of such claims nearly doubled in the first four months of the 2013-14 school year compared to the school year before. In October 2013, the district reported that 70 teachers or other staff filed claims for injuries resulting from incidents with students. Responding to the numbers, the board created a review team to look into “student-involved” workers comp claims. According to Be the Change, there are more injuries, but many go unreported by teachers who do not want to rock the boat, don’t want to take time off from work or have lost faith that anything will happen if they do speak up. Shirelle Dowdell has been a teacher for 15 years; she teaches at Henninger High School. Speaking June 16 at Southwest Community Center, she told a community gathering that in those 15 years, she has written only five referrals, none of which resulted in suspensions. Dowdell served on the task force that prepared the draft of the new code of conduct. “Just as we need to teach our students how to behave, we also need to teach some of our teachers how to deal with student behaviors,” she said. Dowdell says she has never had a student threaten her. To an enthusiastic audience of mostly African-American parents and neighbors, Dowdell continued, “We have some amazing students in this district, in spite of this horrific data. We have some terrific teachers who need to be taught how to deal with our students.” Contreras, speaking at the same meeting, said that teachers need to understand some of the cultural differences that can be misinterpreted. Patricia Clark has served at Henninger High School for years; she works as director of pupil services. She is in charge of student discipline, a thankless job on a good day. Speaking at the forum, she said: “Some people say things are worse than they’ve ever been. Others say we’re not suspending anyone.” Both sides agree on some things. The decision to cut support staff in the schools — 1,000 have been let go since Contreras arrived — has meant fewer adults on hand to help with student behaviors. The reductions of alternative programs for offending students has also played a role. Under the new code of conduct, each school would be required to create a behavioral intervention center with staff trained to assess and deal with any disruptive students. Both Be the Change and the district task force agree this could be a step forward. Scott refers to these centers as a place where a trained specialist could conduct a triage assessment to get help for a disruptive child while the teacher can continue instruction for the rest of the students. Contreras says she has obtained $2 million in state money through Assemblyman Bill Magnarelli (D-Syracuse) to pay for these centers. But one teacher who reported fights breaking out twice a week or more last year at Frazier reacted to the assessment that teachers don’t understand the culture of their students. “I know plenty of poor people who are not abusive,” she says. “Don’t say that this is culture. I refuse to accept that abuse is part of a culture.” SNT

ou never know who will show up at the annual New York State Fair, running Thursday, Aug. 21, through Labor Day Monday, Sept. 1. Since it’s an election year, it’s a safe bet that Gov. An-
drew Cuomo should be hanging out on Governor’s Day, which takes place on opening day. (Fairgoers with long memories will recall the many times that Nelson Rockefeller was a perennial no-show.) Yet even though Hillary Clinton has a new book to promote, and possible presidential aspirations down the road, nobody knows yet whether she’ll be dropping by for a sausage sandwich.

The only sure things will be the concerts and guest appearances that have already been booked, everyone from Pitbull to charter members of The Brady Bunch sitcom, as the State Fair takes full advantage of its several performance venues. On some nights the entertainment menu goes into overdrive: On the evening of Monday, Aug. 25, the decision is between Kid Rock at the Grandstand, Dave Matthews tribute band Big Eyed Fish at the Midway Stage or stepping back in time with Steppenwolf at Chevy Court. Anybody got a three-headed coin? Big touring acts usually hit the big-ticket Grandstand, which can seat up to 17,000, with country acts often capable of luring the most traffic. Aside from music, the Grandstand also hosts a pair of automotive spectacles: the annual Monster Truck show on Sunday, Aug. 31, 7:30 p.m., and the state Championship Demolition Derby on Monday, Sept. 1, 4:30 p.m. Tickets are $13.25 for each show.

DRISCOLL AND KOUYATE SPEAK A UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE So many musicians and bands fall victim to “trying too hard,” by pushing flashy vocals, lyrics and instrumental licks as they flit in and out of genres. But Joe Driscoll and Sekou Kouyate push musical boundaries by not trying too hard. By allowing each other to speak their respective languages, literally and musically, without excessive flash or flair, they achieve something greater. The music on the duo’s CD Faya (Cumbancha) is real, enveloping and truly stands on its own. While Driscoll is a well-known Syracuse hometown hero, Kouyate is from the West African country of Guinea. The two, who met at a 2010 festival in Marseilles, France, were forced to communicate through music. “He doesn’t speak any French, and I speak no English,” Kouyate is quoted on joeandsekou.com, “but through music, we understand.” Their meeting led to the formation of a band, recording an album and more than 120 concerts throughout Europe. Their unique combination of rapping, beatboxing, looping, multilingual songwriting, as well as their respective prowess on guitar and kora, has garnered attention throughout the world. The kora is a 21-string harp made from calabash (a gourd-like vegetable), cowskin and a hardwood neck. The West African instrument has been modernized by Kouyate’s use of pedal effects and virtuosic playing. Faya’s cultural odyssey combines Afrobeat, soul, funk and rap in a way that makes complete sense to the ear and the heart. The themes come across, even

when the words are foreign. “Lady” stands out as an irresistibly catchy love song, luring a lady in with charm (“Hey lady, I’ve got you on my mind, mind, mind, yeah”), while “Ghetto Many” discusses questions about society. But the words that speak most clearly are those musical notes from the instruments, specifically the kora that Kouyate makes sing in revolutionary ways. His deft fingerwork reminds listeners that there is so much to learn in a world this big and that music truly is a universal language. SNT
Soft and calm, Donna Dennihy’s music flows like a gentle river, evoking similar imagery through her acoustic, natural-sounding songs. It’s like you’re sitting next to her as she sings her lullabies of missteps, “Beautiful Mistake”: “Beautiful mistake, but not at first/ beautiful mistake, she thought it was a curse/ Turned out to be the best thing/ That ever happened to them/ Beautiful mistake, won’t happen again.” In “Low Visibility” Dennihy explores regret: “I need to hear an interested voice/ Can’t have it both ways, we need to make a choice/ Why couldn’t I see this today/ What was in front of me/ What got in my way/ Now I have an unobstructed view/ Of you loving me and me loving you/ Finally occurred to me, I could be wrong.” The instrumentation is kept spare, which amplifies its effect on the listener. Popping banjo, mandolin, violin, accordion, udu and haunting harmonies fade in and out, breathing life into songs built on words that are more striking with every interpretive listen. And contributions from fellow musicians including Jon Peterson, Heather Lee, Wendy Ramsay, Joanne Perry, Theresa Walsh, Loren Barrigar and more make for a perfect group effort. Other than the crunchy and lighthearted closing track, “Upside Down Tutu,” there are no tricks on the disc: It’s straightforward, honest and true to its acoustic folk-first appearance. There’s nothing forceful here, no trying to prove or push. Dennihy doesn’t have to. The understated beauty of her tunes speaks for itself. SNT
The Flashing Astonishers. (Koala Syndicate). The nostalgia of ripping rhythm guitar and driving drums with wailing vocals may instantly take this EP’s listeners back to the days of Sonic Youth and similar bands of the indie rock genre. But mastermind Gregg Yeti always puts his own distinct twist on his projects. The four tracks push forward, but stay clean, allowing instrumental voices to speak up and pipe down accordingly.

lengthy buildup on “Steve French” makes for an attention-grabbing change of pace. When the nearly eight-minute-long song finally does burst at the seams, it’s only momentary before the song dips back down to bubbling distortion, once again preparing for release. And “The Devil’s Dictionary” begins with the expected fury, barreling through your eardrums with chaotic force and fire. Yeti and the Flashing Astonishers prove that they have brought some of the most distinct local sounds to the forefront once again. SNT

FRIDAY, AUG. 22
When: 7 p.m. Where: First Presbyterian Church, 97 E. Genesee St. Program: Prelude Concert with 2014 Robinson Award Winner (open only to ticket holders).
he Skaneateles Festival presents a varied program of Gypsy-themed music Wednesday, Aug. 20, through Saturday, Aug. 23.
The music ranges from works of Baroque composer Franz Joseph Haydn to those of contemporary composers Zoltan Kodaly and Miguel Yuste. Despite the gap in time and style between these composers, their works are related through their incorporation of Gypsy melodies and themes. “The thing that binds all these pieces together — romantic, baroque, contemporary — is the idea of Gypsy music and Gypsy spirit. These pieces are imagination, freedom, creativity, and emotion all wrapped up,” said David Ying, a Skaneateles festival artistic director and cellist. Ying will perform Kodaly’s Duo for Violin and Cello, Op. 7, with acclaimed violinist and chamber musician Erin Keefe. “Kodaly was very interested by folk music and very interested in it,” Keefe said. “The biggest challenge is that you only have two people playing. I think Kodaly wrote it that way to sound incredibly improvisatory, which makes the piece more difficult but also gives the musicians a lot of flexibility.” Keefe will also perform Ravel’s Tzigane and Brahms’ Piano Quartet in G Minor. The last movement of the Brahms quartet, a Gypsy rondo, “is always an audience favorite,” Keefe said.
“You hit the last note of the piece and the audience goes wild.” The week’s program presents a number of unique challenges for the musicians. Kodaly, for example, is notorious for creating compositions that pose extreme technical challenges. Osvaldo Goligov’s works, one of which, Lullaby and Doina, will be performed by clarinetist Alan Kay, feature passages with difficult rhythms. “Goligov likes to be adventurous rhythmically,” Kay said. “He asks a lot from his performer in terms of listening and being able to play difficult rhythms. You find, scattered, all different kinds of dances and tunes and so on that Gypsy and klezmer tunes are based on.” Ying hopes that by presenting themed programs, such as the Gypsy concerts and Hungarian-themed concerts, the Skaneateles Festival will introduce audiences to the diversity of the classical repertoire. “People think of classical music as being just one thing, but there’s so much more to it than that,” Ying said. There will be an open rehearsal on Wednesday, Aug. 20, at 2 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church, where audiences can hear the musicians preparing for the chamber performances on Thursday and Friday.

Warner Hodges on music: “There’s some music I put on and I’m 15 again. I’m sure that’s where AC/DC is. For two hours TAKE at that show, I’m a 15-year-old kid who wants to jam. That’s what great entertainment is supposed to do.”

DAN BAIRD AND HOMEMADE SIN ROCK THE DINO Most people will recognize the name Dan Baird from the Georgia Satellites, the chart-topping 1980s-era rock band he fronted as lead singer and rhythm guitarist. But when Baird visits the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que on Monday, Aug. 25, he’ll be rocking alongside Homemade Sin, a lineup that also features former Satellite drummer Mauro Magellan, bassist Micke Nilsson and the ever-animated guitarist Warner Hodges from Jason and the Scorchers. Dan Baird and Homemade Sin offers a wild combination of rock, country and punk, featuring a raucous set list of ripping guitars and irreverent lyrics. Hodges, who has been with the group for the past eight years, recalls with laughter his entrance into the fold. “I was doing a solo record and Dan and I reconnected,” he says. “I had known him for 30 years and asked him to play some guitar. He liked the idea of playing lead and not just rhythm. So while we were doing that record, he walked in one day, slapped down some CDs and said, ‘My guitar player just quit. I need you to help me out.’ I said, ‘Sure, of course.’ It was supposed to be 12 shows, but I’ve been playing with him ever since.” The band covers songs from the Georgia Satellites and Baird’s solo discs, as well as tracks from the two Homemade Sin albums released in 2008 and 2013. “We never use a set list,” Hodges emphasizes. “Every night’s different than last night.” Hodges grew up with musical parents; they moved to Nashville in his teens so his mother could pursue her singing career. Although it never panned out for Hodges’ mom, Nashville was an ideal location for the budding musician. Originally a drummer, he started seeing and playing out with world-class musicians. Hodges also cites hard rockers AC/DC as an influence: He’s seen them perform

more than 100 concerts. “I saw AC/DC one time and had to learn how to play guitar,” he remembers. “I thought, ‘I gotta learn how to do that.’ But I always loved drums. It’s what I pay most attention to on a record.” Working in the Nashville scene, Hodges got to know Jason Ringenberg, a singer and songwriter who was opening for R.E.M. and Carl Perkins during the early 1980s. Hodges attended one show while bassist Jeff Johnson attended the other and both immediately thought, “I gotta play with this guy.” Jason and the Scorchers was born, and Hodges continues to play with Ringenberg 33 years later. “We live 30 miles from each other,” Hodges says, “but sometimes we’ll go a year and a half without seeing each other. We jokingly say Jason and the Scorchers works for us, we don’t work for it anymore.” In addition to those two bands, Hodges performs solo stints as well as gigs with The Bluefields, also featuring Baird, Brad Pemberton and Joe Blanton. “I’ve got lots of different irons in the fire,” he says. Hodges is also excited to revisit his old stomping grounds. “Scott (Sterling, music director at several Dinosaur Bar-B-Ques) and I go way back,” he says. “He promoted some of the first Jason and the Scorchers shows at the Lost Horizon. We played there for years. And Penny Jo Pullus (who is the opening act for the show), I’ve known since the mid-1980s.” SNT
ADVICE FROM THE ARTIST:
“Work on your trade every day. Get better. Stay away from drug and alcohol habits. They’re really easy to have and really bad to have in this business. I still practice two hours on show days and four hours on non-show days and I’m 55 years old. Do it every day. I’ve learned by watching Dan. He’s 60. If he makes a mistake he’ll go back to the hotel and work on it until it’s no longer a mistake. You know what they say: Amateurs do it until they get it right. Professionals do it until they can’t get it wrong. I don’t want to let the team down because of my crappy playing. All these years later, I’m still pushing my envelope. I want to be the best I can be.”

The September 2013 release of The Fury, recorded at Blue Cat and Spanish Dagger Studios in the Lone Star State, features a variety of musicians including Central New York favorite Jose Alvarez. The catchy opener, “Maybe,” has plenty of bounce while later tunes like “Babylon” luxuriate in darker tones. “Under the Influence” has a reggae bump, “Let’s Get English” takes a fierce rock turn and Alvarez’s guitar work on “Normally, Norma Lee” and “Shallow” are instantly unmistakable. Lyrical spice is scattered throughout as Ryan tackles whatever themes and subject matter he wants, coming right out with lines like, “I don’t think I can pretend anymore you see/ It’s not me/ I don’t want to be the little whore on MTV.” No need for subtlety here. Variety defines this disc as Ryan shows that he can tackle it all. SNT

FAMILY MATTERS IN MAKING GOD LAUGH
t might have been Woody Allen, or maybe it was Albert Einstein, who said, “If you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans.” When playwright Sean Grennan uses the line for his 2011 comedy Making God Laugh, he’s signaling that what people project in the first act is just not going to work out during more than two hours of stage time.
REVIEW Showtimes for Making God Laugh are Wednesday, Aug. 20, 2 and 7:30 p.m., and Thursday, Aug. 21, through Saturday, Aug. 22, 7:30 p.m., at Cortland Repertory Theatre, 6799 Little York Lake Road, off Route 281, Preble.
Then again, Grennan’s modest expectations for the play have been trampled. After coming out of nowhere (rural Wisconsin), Making God Laugh has been produced in dozens of big markets including Chicago and Philadelphia before making its boffo area premiere at Cortland Repertory Theatre. Unusual for an unknown quantity, the company has been selling out shows and has already slated extra performances before it ends on Saturday, Aug. 23. Making God Laugh initially feels like a generic sitcom, or possibly a parody of one. We’re in a lower middle-class home, somewhere near Chicago in 1980. Papa Bill (Dale J. Young) is a postal worker, and his three nearly adult children are back for Thanksgiving dinner. Thomas (Ryan Halsaver) is on his way to the priesthood, which is very pleasing to the household, with a picture of the pope placed next to the family. Former high school athletic star Rick (Magarin Hobson) is getting started in the real estate business. And daughter Maddie (Melissa Macleod Herion) has gone off to college to study drama, hop-
ing to have a career as an actress. Such a choice does not have family support. Dominating the scene is the boundlessly cheerful matriarch Ruthie (Mary Poindexter Williams), who is at once a dictator and a ditz. Her June Cleaver demeanor does not stop us from noticing that her comments are cutting, as she dismisses her daughter’s aspirations and marginalizes her seemingly milquetoast husband. Yet many laughs are at her expense. Ruthie complains that the Catholic Church has been going downhill since it abandoned the Latin Mass. She may not have understood what she was saying, but she liked it better that way. If Making God Laugh’s New York state opening had been in Manhattan instead of Cortland, the facile treatment of Ruthie’s foibles would have invited a harsh response. So, too, would the glib hindsight on predicting the future. Bill proclaims you’ll never be able to send mail by computer because “people love the feel of paper.” Yet underneath the clichés and easy gags lie real
emotions. Time sorts out pain from light banter, as the action moves forward nine years to Christmas 1989. The second act is then divided between New Year’s Eve in 1999, and finally, to the present, 34 years later. Maddie is the most assertive child. She also recoils from digs at her carrying a few extra pounds to her inability to attract a male, which escalates into a firefight. This also gives actress Melissa Macleod Heron a big share of the play’s best lines, such as the need to say grace before taking Tic Tacs. As the brother who is prey to bad choices (“Invest in the Yugo, a car with a great future!”), Rick can be the butt of jokes rather than the deliverer of them. Grennan gives him a show-stopping scene when his belief in conspiracy theories gets the best of him. Actor Magarin Hobson lends his character depth when he turns out to be the neediest. Virtue is always hard to play, and seminarian Thomas remains a caring person throughout, never revealing ugly character faults. His conflict, which his mother cannot recognize, is that he becomes out of step with his vocation. Ryan Halsaver’s comic opportunities might be smaller, but he scores big with some one-word lines, like “Monsignor.” Director Jim Bumgardner’s best work appears in the handling of the parents. Thanks to Dale J. Young’s strong performance, Papa Bill’s outburst in the third scene becomes the dramatic climax. And Mary Poindexter Williams, one of Cortland Rep’s most-loved performers (2010’s Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks), plumbs the irony of the play’s most characteristic lines, notably, “Why do people have to be so damn happy?” Costume designer Jason Lee Resler has fun delineating 34 years of now-extinct fashions in everything from pants to eyeglasses. Although not credited for them, he must have been in charge of the outrageous wigs, some of which should have waddled out for the curtain call. SNT

ROBIN WILLIAMS, 1951-2014 Last week, I sat down to watch something featuring Robin Williams. In the wake of his death, I’m sure many of us have wanted to watch little else. The comedian is known for his crazy vocal antics in Disney’s Aladdin (1992) and for dramatic roles in the Dead Poets Society (1989) and Good Will Hunting (1997). But I think many of us — particularly those of us who grew up loving and learning from the Genie and Mrs. Doubtfire — forget that Williams’ career began and ended on the small screen, not the big one. Williams studied acting at Juilliard, but dropped out in his junior year after his mentor, John Houseman, told him there was nothing more he could teach him. After a brief stint on The Richard Pryor Show (1977), Williams, 26, was cast in the role of Mork from Ork on Happy Days (1978-1984). It was a seminal moment in the history of television comedy. Mork was an alien sent to Earth to study human life in the 1950s. His misunderstanding of social and cultural norms was a source of hilarious slapstick and verbal humor in his interactions with Fonzie (Henry Winkler) and Laverne (Penny Marshall). For the first time, Williams’ signature vocal play and physical shenanigans were introduced to a national audience. Mork’s appearance on the popular ABC sitcom was so well received that a year later the network created a spin-off: Mork & Mindy. Mork & Mindy (1978-1982) followed the adventures of Mork and his earthly roommate Mindy McConnell (Pam Dawber). Williams’ improvisation impressed the show’s writers, who — rumor has it — left gaps in the script, with directions only for him to freely ad-lib. Mork, with his trademark greeting “nanoo, nanoo,” became a cultural phenomenon. Mork & Mindy launched Williams’ 40-year career. He became a remarkably diverse film actor, running the gamut from slapstick family comedies to heartwarming dramedies to serious dramatic masterpieces. One look at the actor’s IMDb page is enough to spin anyone’s head in astonishment. His career was prolific, his characters prismatic. He was

a friend to Hollywood, as was evident by the many tributes to him upon his death. In 2013, Williams returned to television. The Crazy Ones, which premiered on CBS on Sept. 26, followed a father (Williams) and daughter (Sarah Michelle Gellar) who were partners in an advertising agency. The show was silly and “safe,” as The A.V. Club’s Erik Adams put it. But Williams still had his energy, if a bit subdued from his former sprightly self. Toward its finale, the show began to find its footing, growing more creative and charming. Unfortunately, The Crazy Ones became a casualty of the crowded landscape of television programming; just as it hit its stride, it was cancelled. The celebrity news website TMZ has reported that Williams considered the cancellation a “personal failure,” and that it sent him into a deep depression. He had been recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and was having trouble finding satisfying roles. The ultimate reason(s) for Williams’ suicide will never be known. Frankly, they’re not the point. Depression is a deadly disease that is both misunderstood and misjudged. Throughout his life, Williams was open about his struggles with cocaine and alcohol abuse, and with bouts of depression. His death is evidence that it can affect even the most successful and seemingly happy people. Despite the tragedy of Robin Williams’ death, thanks to the wealth of his material available on the Internet, we can continue to celebrate his life and the gift of joy and laughter he brought to the world for nearly half a century. President Barack Obama put it best: “He was one of a kind. He arrived in our lives as an alien, but he ended up touching every element of the human spirit.” SNT Sarah Hope is a graduate student at Syracuse University, where she focuses on television, entertainment history and classical music.

The Richard Pryor Show (NBC, 1977) was a short-lived variety program starring comedian and rabble rouser Richard Pryor. The fun and provocative program featured Pryor’s unique brand of racial commentary, a style later picked up by Dave Chappelle for his Chappelle’s Show. Where to watch: All four episodes — all featuring Robin Williams — can be found on YouTube. Mork & Mindy (ABC, 1972-1984) is set in the late 1970s and follows an alien, Mork, from the planet Ork, and his friend and (spoiler alert) later wife, Mindy. It’s a Robin with lots of hair and rainbow suspenders. Where to watch: About a third of the series’ 95 syndicated episodes are available on Hulu Plus. Much of the balance can be made up by searching YouTube. The Crazy Ones (CBS, 2013-2014) stars Robin Williams as Simon Roberts, an eccentric ad man (like Don Draper, but more bonkers, less broody) whose daughter, Sydney (Sarah Michelle Gellar), has just come on as partner at the advertising agency alongside him. He’s wacky; she’s level-headed. Antics ensue. Where to watch: VUDU and Amazon Prime both have the series available for $1.99 per episode, and there are a number of great clips on the show’s YouTube channel. With a quick YouTube search, one can also find several of Williams’ many cameo and one-off appearances: Homicide: Life on the Street (1994); The Larry Sanders Show (1992, 1994); Friends (1997); and Louie (2012).

syracusenewtimes.com | 08.20.14 - 08.26.14
ARIES (March 21-April 19). An American
named Kevin Shelley accomplished a feat worthy of inclusion in the Guinness Book of World Records. While wearing a blue satin martial arts outfit, he smashed 46 wooden toilet seats over his head in just one minute. Some observers may be inclined to dismiss his efforts as frivolous and ridiculous. But I admire how he playfully mocked his own competitiveness while fully expressing his competitiveness. He satirized his ego’s drive to be first and best even as achieved the goal of being first and best. I recommend you try something similar. You’re entering a phase when you’ll be wise to add a bit of humility to your bold self-presentation.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You are about to
make the transition from plodding to skipping; from moping to exulting. You will no longer be bogged down by cloudy doubt, but will instead be buoyed by giddy hope. To what do we owe this imminent turnaround in your fortunes? One reason is that it’s Justifiable Narcissism Week, for Tauruses only. During this jubilee, the Free Will Astrology Council on Extreme Self-Esteem authorizes you to engage in unabashed self-worship, and to corral a host of other people who want to join in celebrating you, praising you, and helping you.
By Rob Brezsny your tenderness affords you may not completely dissolve your doubt and worry, but it will quiet them down so much that they will lose their ability to paralyze you. These truths are always good to keep in mind, of course, but they are especially useful to you right now. No obstacle will faze you, no shadow will intimidate you, as long as you feed your holy longing and unshakable compassion.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) On Aug. 2, 1830,
Louis Antoine, Duke of Angouleme, was King of France for 20 minutes. (It’s a long story.) I offer this to you as a cautionary tale. A few weeks from now, I don’t want to have to be comparing you to him. If you hope to hold your new position or continue to wield your added clout for longer than just a little while, you should take all necessary steps. How? Nurture the web of support that will sustain you, for example. Don’t burn a single bridge. Cultivate real empathy, not just the showy kind. Avoid manipulative behavior, even if you think you can get away with it. Be a skillful gatherer of information.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Golda Meir
catch flies. A lion won’t hunt for mice. A gourmet chef shuns recipes that call for canned soup and potato chips. And I trust that you won’t indulge a hankering for non-nutritious sweets and treats that would spoil your appetite for more robust sustenance. You understand I’m not just talking about your literal eating habits, right? Interpret this oracle metaphorically, please.
was prime minister of Israel from 1969 to 1974. Her admirers described her as a “strong-willed, straight-talking, gray-bunned grandmother of the Jewish people.” She had a good sense of humor, too. “Let me tell you the one thing I have against Moses,” she said. “He took us 40 years into the desert in order to bring us to the one place in the Middle East that has no oil.” I bring this up as a teaching story for you, Sagittarius. If you plan to make any big moves, transitions or journeys in the coming months, I suggest you choose destinations that will allow you to gain access to wealth-building resources.
CANCER (June 21-July 22). Now is an excel-
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Do you know
GEMINI (May 21-June 20). An eagle does not
lent time to phase out fantasies that bog you down or drag you backward. Are you up for that challenge? Can you summon the courage to leave the mediocre past behind? If so, here are your assignments: Wean yourself of longings to reconstruct bygone pleasures. Forget about trying to be like the person you used to be and to have the keys you used to have. Stop feeding the feelings that keep you affixed to obsolete goals. Break any taboo that makes you scared to change what needs to be changed.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) The artist Amedeo
Modigliani lived in Paris from 1906 until his death in 1920. For most of that time, he was destitute. Proprietors of local stores and restaurants sometimes accepted his artwork as payment in lieu of actual money. They didn’t necessarily appreciate it, however. One food seller used Modigliani’s drawings as wraps for the fried potatoes he sold. Another stashed the artist’s paintings in his cellar, where they turned into feasts for rodents. Too bad for these short-sighted people and their heirs: The worth of Modigliani’s works eventually increased, and some sold for millions of dollars. In the weeks ahead, Leo, don’t be like those food sellers. Know the value of what you have, even if it’s still latent.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) I’ve got three
new vocabulary words for you. I need them to provide you with the proper oracle. First is the German term Schwellenangst. It refers to timidity or nervousness about crossing a threshold and heading into unknown territory. The second word is a new English term, “strikhedonia.” It means the joy that rises up when you feel the courage to say “to hell with it.” The third word is from Portuguese: desenrascanço. It means the spontaneous improvisation of haphazard but ultimately effective plans. Now let’s put them all together: To conquer your Schwellenangst, you must summon a bolt of strikhedonia and have faith in your ability to carry out desenrascanço. (Thanks to other-wordly.tumblr.com for the new words.)
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Desire can conquer

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Mickey Rourke,
what phase of your cycle it is? Here are a few hints. It doesn’t come around often. It’s not characterized by predictable events or boring certainties. And it may allow you, even encourage you, to take a break from being your usual self. Give up? OK. I’ll tell you. You have entered the Nicolas Cage Phase of your cycle. Cage is a Capricorn, but not a typical one. He’s eccentric and manic and certifiably batty. He refers to his acting technique as “Nouveau Shamanic,” once lived in a fake castle, and owns a Lamborghini that belonged to a legendary tyrant, the Shah of Iran. For our current purposes, he has also testified, “I am not a demon. I am a lizard, a shark, a heat-seeking panther. I want to be Bob Denver on acid playing the accordion.”

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Here’s one of
Step Up: All In. This dance-fevered install-
my goals in life, Aquarius: to show you a type of astrology that does not infringe on your free will, but rather clarifies your options. In this horoscope, for instance, I will outline your alternatives so that you will be fully informed as you determine what course of action will be most closely aligned with your high ideals. Ponder the following question, and then briskly exert your freedom of choice: Would you prefer to have love make your head spin, knock you off your feet, tickle your X-factor, kick you gently but firmly in the ass, or all of the above?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) “God changes
caterpillars into butterflies, sand into pearls, and coal into diamonds by using time and pressure,” says pastor Rick Warren. “He is working on you, too.” Let’s make that idea your meditation, Pisces. If the word “God” doesn’t suit you, substitute “life,” “nature” or “Wakan Tanka,” the Lakotan term for “The Great Mystery.” The essential point is that you are being worked on and shaped by forces beyond your conscious awareness. Some of them are vast and impersonal, like your culture, the media, and the entertainment industry. Others are intimate and close at hand, like your genes, your childhood imprints, and the characters you encounter daily. Now is an excellent time to contemplate all the influences that make you who you are.

FORECLOSURE RESCUE SCAMS Be careful of people who approach you with offers to “save” your home. There are individuals who watch for notices of foreclosure actions in order to unfairly profit from a homeowner’s distress. You should be extremely careful about any such promises and any suggestions that you pay them a fee or sign over your deed. State law requires anyone offering such services for profit to enter into a contract which fully describes the services they will perform and
fees they will charge, and which prohibits them from taking any money from you until they have completed all such promised services. Notice of Formation of 800 North Clinton Street, LLC.

FORECLOSURE RESCUE SCAMS. Be careful of people who approach you with offers to “save” your home. There are individuals who watch for notices of foreclosure actions in order to unfairly profit from a homeowner’s distress. You should be extremely careful about any such promises and any suggestions that you pay them a fee or sign over your deed. State law requires anyone offering such services for profit to enter into a contract which fully describes the services they will perform and fees they will charge, and which prohibits them from taking any money from you until they have completed all such promised services. Section 1303 NOTICE YOU ARE IN DANGER OF
LOSING YOUR HOME.

Sending a payment to your mortgage company will not stop this foreclosure action.

KITCHEN REDO OPENS POSSIBILITIES AT CAFÉ AT 407
magine banging out soups, grilled sandwiches, breakfast burritos, biscotti, muffins, monkey bread, cookies and more — for dozens of customers, on a daily basis — with an oven and a stove designed for residential rather than restaurant use. Oh, and the stove has just three working burners. Make that two burners, if you’re working with oversized restaurant pans. That was Laura Hahn’s reality. Hahn, the kitchen manager at Café at 407, in Liverpool, joined the cafe team two years ago, cooked almost daily in its small kitchen and dreamed about an upgrade. Her wish came true several weeks ago, when Café at 407 closed for a week for a complete kitchen makeover and a more subtle re-do of the dining area. Now Hahn has a bigger space and shiny new appliances. On a quick tour of the kitchen on a recent weekday morning, she showed off her six-burner stove, 36-inch griddle, convection/conventional ovens and overhead broiler. To say she loves the new kitchen is an understatement. “I can fit three large sheet pans in the oven,’’ Hahn says. “If I need to, I can put a cake and a chicken in the oven at the same time. Now we have the oven space to bake everything in the morning instead of

the night before.’’ The café has hired a baker, who has expanded the dessert offerings to include fruit tarts, macaroons and doughnuts. “We’re hoping to become a baked goods destination,’’ Hahn says. Café at 407 opened in 2009 as a way to provide a funding stream for Ophelia’s Place, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing resources and educating the community about eating disorders, disordered eating and body dissatisfaction. With its comfortable coffeehouse vibe and menu of delicious breakfast and lunch items, the cafe drew an immediate and loyal following. Ophelia’s Place founder Mary Ellen Clausen is pleased with the renovation and excited about the new direction it will allow Café at 407 to take. Money for the work was made possible by grants from the Welch Allyn Foundation, the Reisman Foundation and the Hilda and Preston Davis Foundation.
“The new kitchen is beyond beautiful, and I’m not sure what blew me away more: the kitchen or the incredible workers that didn’t stop until the project was completed,’’ Clausen says. “I have so much gratitude for the determination of all that were involved. A shiny new commercial kitchen allows us to expand our reach . . . and grow this beautiful community of supporters of Ophelia’s Place.’’ The front of the house features a long bar with stools along the front windows and new tables with wooden tops built by the designers at Cab Fab, in downtown Syracuse. Some customers miss the funky, mismatched tables and chairs that made the cafe homey. But tables that are uniform in size allow the staff to more efficiently move them around on band nights and set them up for special events, like “Slow Supper Sundays,’’ supper clubs and “dinnersations,’’ Clausen says. The café menu has been revamped slightly to include more of a focus on local purveyors. A board near the coffee bar spotlights the growing list of local partners, including Hartwood Farm, Main Street Farms, Russo Produce, DiLauro’s Bakery, the Community Growth Garden, Ascioti’s Meat Market, Forty Weight Coffee Roasters, Finger Lakes Coffee Roasters and others. And a new menu board (an old window re-purposed by Hahn) spotlights seasonal-local specials. The week of the cafe’s re-opening, those included blueberry and cornbread panzanella (a Tuscan-style salad made with bread) and a blueberry and brie grilled cheese sandwich, with homemade blueberry jam, on focaccia bread. The blueberries came from down the road, at Abbott Farms, in Baldwinsville. Café at 407 is at 407 Tulip St., in Liverpool. It is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and supper, and catering is available. Information: 451-5855; www.cafeat407.org. SNT Margaret McCormick blogs about food at eatfirst.typepad.com.

aila Johansen and her fiance, Kyle Westervelt, have a choice of outdoor spaces at their Mission Landing residence. The patio off the master bedroom is shaded by large trees. The entrance to the condo is through a sun-filled courtyard. Johansen had seen the condo when it was on the market a few years ago, but the owner withdrew the property. But Johansen said they knocked on the door anyway, and said, “Can we buy your house?” The owner agreed, and the couple bought the two bedroom, two bath, 1,923-square-foot condo in September 2012. The previous owner had both outdoor spaces professionally landscaped. She left behind the patio furniture and the garden decorations. Both spaces are fenced, giving the couple’s Great Dane puppy, Scarlett, a place to roam. On a recent morning, Scarlett was happily snapping a few dead twigs from the holly bush in the front courtyard. Trimming and pruning bushes and trees were a new experience for Johansen during their first year in the condo, she said. This year, she’s growing flowers in pots. “Thank goodness for Miracle Gro,” she said, laughing. “I have a brown thumb for the most part.” Johansen jokes that she “dragged (Westervelt) into living here,” from his home in Massachusetts. Before moving to Mission Landing, the former
Monarch Typewriter factory in Franklin Square, the couple lived above Al’s Wine & Whiskey Lounge in Armory Square. But Armory Square was a too noisy for Johansen, who has to get up at 6 a.m. to commute to her job as an elementary school art teacher in Fayetteville. On the commute, she says she watches the traffic backing up heading from the eastern suburbs into downtown. “I can’t imagine wanting to do that every day,” she said. The couple, who got engaged this summer, spend more time in the sunny space than the shaded patio. “When it’s a nice day, you want to be out in the sunshine,” she said. The previous owner installed wood decking on both patios, and Johansen said they are considering replacing the deck with pavers. “But I kind of like the feeling of having a deck in the middle of the city,” she said. “I plan on being here through having our first baby,” she said. “I don’t see us moving.” Not even if someone comes knocking. “I will not sell to anyone who knocks on the door,” she said.
