The Old Shell Game
Sexing certain species of turtles used to be an invasive process, sometimes requiring surgery on the little guy or gal. But Donald McKnight, a Ph.D. student at James Cook University in Queensland, Australia, has perfected a method that speeds up the process — and presumably pleases the shelled reptile. McKnight uses a vibrator to stimulate the underside of the turtle, which causes a male to “reveal himself,” sometimes in as little as four seconds. McKnight did his research in Oklahoma on threatened western chicken turtles.
Life Imitating Art
Jeremy A. Perkins, 27, was led astray by someone who told him “the purge” was happening on Aug. 12 in Kansas City, Mo. (The Purge was a 2013 horror film that envisioned a temporary decriminalization of all criminal acts, after which society collapses in chaos.) In response (and high on methamphetamines), Perkins climbed to the top of a building and began throwing rocks at passing vehicles. Perkins told responding officers that he perceived everyone as his enemy and was trying to protect himself. He added that if he had had a gun, he would have shot people.
Curses, Foiled Again
A Hartford City, Ind., man was outed to police by a tattoo on the back of his neck as he tried to use an alias on July 28. The incident started when James Jason Buck, 33, pounded on the door of a Muncie home, demanding a drink, and homeowners called the police. At first, the man said he was Robert Dill, 37, of Florida.
But when an officer noticed his tattoo, “Buck,” and called him Mr. Buck, he confessed his real name and date of birth. Mr. Buck also had a plastic bag with crystal methamphetamine, and, officers discovered, a rather long rap sheet.
It’s Important to Have Goals
When federal agents turned up in May 2016 with a search warrant at the Miami home of 19-year-old Phyllistone Termine, they interrupted the teenager as he crafted a summer fraud to-do list. Items on the list included buying credit card numbers and security codes on the “dark web.” Between March 2015 and his arrest, Termine had used stolen Social Security numbers from more than 1,000 victims to collect unemployment benefits in excess of $1 million. Next to his bed were blank white credit cards with magnetic strips and equipment to encode those strips. In July, Termine was sentenced to four and a half years in federal prison, where his organizational skills may be put to some more legal purpose.

SPORTS By Matt Michael
ORANGE’S BOWL HOPES HINGE ON INJURED DUNGEY RECOVERY When all is said and done, we may look back and sum up this Syracuse University football season as the thrill of victory and the agony of defoot. The thrilling victory was a 27-24 upset of then-No. 2 and now-No. 4 Clemson Oct. 13 at the Carrier Dome. It was the biggest win for the Orange since SU knocked off No. 1 Nebraska in 1984 at the Dome. And “defoot” is the injured right foot of star quarterback Eric Dungey, whose availability in the final two games of the season will likely determine if Syracuse will qualify for its first bowl game since 2013. That seemed like a lock following the victory over Clemson, which improved Syracuse’s record to 4-3. The Orange needed to win just two more games to go bowling, and the schedule seemed favorable with road games against two powerhouses having down years (Florida State and Louisville) and home games against Wake Forest and Boston College. After playing well but losing at No. 8 (and now No. 2) Miami Oct. 21, the Orange visited Florida State and Dungey was injured on the fifth play of Syracuse’s first possession. The Orange fell behind 14-0 before Dungey returned in the second quarter, and SU lost 27-24 as Cole Murphy’s 43-yard field goal attempt as time expired was partially blocked and sailed wide left. SU coach Dino Babers said early last week that he expected Dungey to play against Wake Forest Nov. 11 at the Dome. But after warming up before the game, Dungey didn’t play in the first half and was wearing a boot on his right foot for the second half. Syracuse has not provided details of Dungey’s injury. Senior Zack Mahoney, who started his SU career as a fifthstring walk-on, replaced Dungey against Wake Forest and played a strong first half followed by a wobbly second half. Still, SU led 38-24 at halftime and 43-40 at the end of three quarters, but the Demon Deacons outscored the Orange 24-0 in the final quarter and coasted to a 64-43 win at the Dome. Mahoney accounted for 422 total yards (384 passing, 38 rushing), 74 more than Dungey’s average of 343.7, which, by the way, ranked seventh in the nation entering last weekend’s games. But Dungey is SU’s emotional leader and most dynamic player, and the Orange just doesn’t respond well as a team when he’s not playing, as Mahoney is now 1-7 as a starter in the past three years.

“This is my second year in an offense for the first time in college,” said Mahoney, who played in a different system under former coach Scott Shafer in his first year at Syracuse. “I feel very confident running it. Unfortunately, both my last two starts have been losses. But if I play (this week), I will play with as much confidence as I can.” Against Wake Forest, the defense let the Orange down as the Demon Deacons (6-4) gained 734 total yards, quarterback John Wolford accounted for 499 total yards and six touchdowns (three passing, three running), and Wake Forest outscored Syracuse 40-5 in the second half and scored the most points ever for an opponent at the Dome. “We know that we have to do a lot better. Our effort needs to be a lot better than the way we played out there today,” Babers said. “We are disappointed. We have another opportunity next week. All of our dreams are not dead, but we need to play a lot better than what we played today.” As Babers said, “There is no more room for error,” as the Orange must win its final two games to clinch a bowl appearance and make this season feel like it wasn’t a disappointment. On Saturday, Nov. 18, 3:30 p.m., Syracuse visits a Louisville team led by
the defending Heisman Trophy winner, quarterback Lamar Jackson. The Cardinals (6-4) were ranked No. 16 at the start of the season, but fell to two ranked teams (Clemson and North Carolina State) and two teams that have played much better than anticipated (Boston College and Wake Forest). “We are up on the cliff now,” Babers said. “We need to go down there to our next opponent (Louisville), who won (Saturday against Virginia). They’ve got fabulous players and it’s at their place and we have to find a way to win.” The Orange (4-6) is 0-4 on the road this season (albeit against four difficult opponents in LSU, NC State, Miami and Florida State), and it hasn’t won a road game since last Oct. 22 at Boston College. It’s hard to imagine the Orange winning on the road without Dungey, but if SU can find a way to beat Louisville it’ll still have to conquer Boston College (5-5), which like Syracuse has lost to some difficult opponents (Wake Forest, Notre Dame, Clemson, Virginia Tech and NC State). History provides some hope. In 2007, the Orange visited Louisville and defeated the heavily favored Cardinals 38-35. And Syracuse has won three of its last four games against Boston College, including

a 34-31 thriller in 2013 that ultimately secured a berth in the Texas Bowl. It’s also possible the Orange could finish 5-7 and fill one of the 78 bowl spots if there aren’t enough six-win teams. In that case, teams are selected on the strength of their most recent academic scores. But Syracuse can avoid that scenario, and rewrite how we’ll look at this football season, by winning its final two games. To that end, a healthy Dungey would be an immense help. “No more time for any excuses,” Orange linebacker Zaire Franklin said after the Wake Forest game. “Coach Babers told us that the last time we were here (at the Dome against Clemson) we had probably the biggest win in program history and personally, I feel more embarrassed — not embarrassed, I feel more disappointed — in this game. Moving forward to next week, we have a sense of urgency. We have to find a way to get a win.”
Boeheim vs. Boeheim
The SU men’s basketball team routed Cornell 77-45 Nov. 10 in a season opener at the Dome that was notable because it featured Orange Hall of Fame coach Jim Boeheim coaching against his son, Big Red freshman forward Jimmy Boeheim. Jimmy sank a three-pointer in front of the Orange bench on his first shot less
than 30 seconds into the game. He finished with 11 points and five rebounds in 26 minutes, and received a hug from his father after the game. When asked what Jim said to him, Jimmy smiled and said, “He said I was close to having a good game.” Jimmy said he was nervous at the start, but soon settled into the flow of the game. He said it was “a little weird” to hear his father yell from so close to the floor. “I mean, obviously, I’ve heard it at me,” Jimmy said. “I just kind of looked over (at the Orange bench).” Jim downplayed his emotions when asked what he was feeling with his son on the opposing team. “Well, I’m not playing so it doesn’t matter what my emotions are, really,” Boeheim said. “I’ve just got to coach the team and you’re hoping your son does well and plays well. I thought he did a really good job of getting by and putting the ball on the floor, and it’s hard to do that against our zone.” Next year, the Boeheim vs. Boeheim storyline will grow as Buddy Boeheim, Jim’s other son and Jimmy’s brother, joins the Orange. “That’ll be a whole other thing, but we’ve competed our entire life,” Jimmy Boeheim said. “So it’ll be another chapter, just on a bigger stage.” SNT

ELECTION DAY 2017
Independent candidate Ben Walsh (right; Dylan Suttles photo) pulled a big surprise by winning the Syracuse mayoral seat in time for the 11 p.m. newscasts, especially since some political observers believed the race was too close to call. Meanwhile, Democrat candidate Juanita Perez Williams (second row; Michael Davis photos) enjoyed the annual Our Lady of Pompei spaghetti feast earlier in the afternoon, but ended her day with a concession speech at the MOST. Also at the pasta feed was Walsh and his family (lower left; Michael Davis photos), and perennial Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins held his election night watch at the Polish Home. On the facing page, Republican candidate Laura Lavine met the press at Strada Mia restaurant (left), while proud papa Jim Walsh addressed the media during his sonâ€™s victory lap (right; Dylan Suttles photos).

THINGS THAT MATTER By Luke Parsnow
PARTY POOPERS LED TO BEN WALSH’S ELECTION WIN
he Nov. 7 elections were seen nationwide as a resounding victory for Democrats. That was not the case in Syracuse, as independent mayoral candidate Ben Walsh’s historic victory mirrored a different kind of trend.
The same day Walsh was elected, a new CNN poll stated that the Democratic Party’s favorability rating is a mere 37 percent — the lowest in 25 years. The Republican Party’s favorability rating is around 30 percent, also the lowest in 25 years. Significant rejection of the modern two-party system has been a growing phenomenon for quite some time. It came to fruition in 2016 when Donald Trump turned political ideology upside down by winning the Republican presidential nomination without really being a Republican, and then won the White House thanks to support from millions of traditional Democratic voters. While he is nothing like Trump, Walsh — the grandson of a Republican Syracuse mayor and the son of a Republican who represented Central New York in Congress for two decades — was surrounded by Democrats at his election night headquarters. And when he is sworn in Jan. 1, Walsh will be the first Syracuse mayor in more than 100 years not aligned with either major party.
But like Trump one year ago, Walsh leaves local Democrats and Republicans scrambling, wondering if either of their messages can reach an electorate that is evidently hungry for radical change. Just four years after Democratic Mayor Stephanie Miner won re-election with 62 percent of the vote against two minor-party candidates, the party-less Walsh defeated Democratic candidate Juanita Perez Williams by 16 points. It’s not easy for someone with a Republican name to beat a Democratic candidate in a city where Democrats account for 55 percent of the city’s voters — a city where Democrats have held the mayorship for 39 of the last 47 years. Even resounding endorsements from Democratic champions like Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Vice President Joe Biden and other large upstate city mayors weren’t enough to get Perez Williams over the finish line. In contrast, Walsh couldn’t get the Republican Party leaders behind him. The party denied his request for their endorsement last spring, even refusing to put him

on the ballot when the party voted on which candidate they would back. In the end, Walsh won enough traditional Republican voters that the actual Republican nominee, Laura Lavine, finished behind Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins. It’s the first time something like that has happened in a Syracuse mayoral race in 60 years. It’s not just the Republican Party that picked the wrong candidate. The city’s Democratic leadership formally endorsed Common Councilor Joe Nicoletti in May, who then went on to lose to Perez Williams in the primary by 18 points. And even then, Walsh’s victory was due thanks in part to a coalition of Democrats and African Americans who defected from Perez Williams’ campaign. Democrats and Republicans should do some soul searching in the months and years ahead. After both saw so many of their voters, who are usually under their party umbrella, flock to the candidate without one, they might want to rethink what they stand for, what their platform is, and what they want to see in their mayor. One thing that’s not entirely clear is whether or not Walsh’s election stood for a repudiation of Mayor Miner’s administration. Even though the people clearly voted for serious change last week, an August Siena College poll found that Syracuse residents rated Miner’s favorability at 58 percent, while half said the city is
generally headed in the right direction. But Miner’s often combative style resulted in fractured relationships with key political figures, from members of her own party such as Gov. Cuomo, to her Republican counterparts like Rep. John Katko. Perhaps it was the type of usagainst-them leadership that made voters tire of political infighting and choose someone like Walsh to lead them. Three years ago on election night, after it became clear that Katko would unseat Democrat Dan Maffei in Congress, I asked Miner what she thought about Central New York’s constant party fluctuation in who they send to Washington. “I think what we’re seeing in this district is a bellwether for what’s going on around the country,” she answered. “You’re seeing the country kind of go back and forth as both parties struggle to find a message and a record of accomplishment.” Miner could say that about the country. She could say that about Congress. And now, she could say the same about Syracuse, as she hands over the City Hall keys to a new kind of leader. SNT

TRICKY DICK DODGES A MEDIA-MADE INQUISITION A television show. A stage play. A movie. It’s not usual for a property to be all three of these things, but Frost/Nixon is different. TV host and sometime comic David Frost recorded nearly 30 hours of interviews in 1977 with disgraced President Richard Nixon to produce a three-part syndicated show that truly made waves,
a landmark for the medium. British playwright Peter Morgan produced his stage play Frost/Nixon about how that happened in London in 2006. It is now making its area premiere, running through Saturday, Nov. 18, at Central New York Playhouse. Director Ron Howard’s film adaptation that appeared in 2008 left out elements

that could only work on stage. A live production, as Central New York Playhouse demonstrates, not only delivers a smashing moment of self-revelation, it also inquires penetratingly into the weakness and power of television. The first striking difference between the play and the movie, which Morgan also wrote, is that more characters speak than the principals. Much of the exposition comes from James Reston (Tyler Ianuzi), a partisan voice of what might pass for the liberal establishment. The program errs in not identifying him as James Reston Jr., whose namesake and father was an iconic liberal journalist of the previous generation. Countering him is Jack Brennan (David Dean), a Fox News-style voice before that network was founded. Both also participate in the action. In Howard’s film the camera is the narrator. This has more the feel of television, where voice-overs are more common. The two narrators help with playwright Morgan’s task in holding our interest and surprising us when we know what the climax is going to be. It’s also the responsibility of director Justin Polly: Nixon must become a rounded dramatic character, much more than a cartoon of either the left or right. In responding to this call, Tom Minion delivers one of the most crafted and nuanced performances of his admirable career. It’s just as well that he doesn’t look at all like Nixon because he and Polly have concentrated on the voice, on which they score a direct hit. How many
hours did Minion listen to tapes in order to perfect the timber and rhythms? Yet not too much. Getting too close to the original, as Rich Little used to do, can turn comic. Minion gives us a character uneasy in his skin, wince-making in his disastrous attempts at small talk, defensively loquacious and boring to avoid what he does not wish to say. This is by no means a political whitewash. What Minion does instead is to create a character of dramatic empathy, regardless of what we think of him, not unlike Rigoletto in the Verdi opera or Shylock. Jeremiah Thompson’s David Frost, in contrast, looks like a character who never had a moment of introspection. Thompson, previously noted for his demonic red beard (1984, Eurydice), had no need to mimic Frost’s speech patterns, as most of the audience has forgotten them. Instead, he gives us a womanizing, vacuous careerist of no discernible political convictions who looked upon Nixon as a rich, exploitable “get.” Morgan’s text portrays Frost, then only 38, as tumbling into a career fall and in need of reversing his fortunes. Not only was his independent production going to pay Nixon to appear (“checkbook journalism,” then shunned by respectable outlets), but he sought out oily super agent Swifty Lazar (William Edward White, who is excellent, although twice Lazar’s size) to close the deal. The object was not making history but turning a huge profit. And this Frost did. As James Reston says in the play, unlike everyone else, he understood television. Thompson, never wavering in his Mayfair British accent, gives Frost a vacant, almost harmless smile, as if he were barely paying attention. This is wonderfully effective, especially when after hours of Nixon’s evasion, Frost goes in for the kill. The president fessed up the truth to someone he no longer feared. Let’s forget that the real Frost, his few fans would remind us, was actually a person of more substance who was later knighted. Director Polly has attracted strong support from skilled veterans, such as Jim Uva as bumptious ABC-TV newsman Bob Zelnick, Jon Wilson as two different Englishmen, and recent Syracuse New Times Syracuse Area Live Theater (SALT) winner Alan Stillman as four distinct characters of different ethnicities. Technical proficiency helps to make Frost/Nixon an examination of the media as much as it is of presidential malfeasance. Television technical director William Edward White set up banks of monitors on either side of the set so we can see how the narrative in front of us played on the screen. Behind-the-scenes personnel Dan Randall, Rob Searle and Kasey Polly cooperated to rig up massive, 1977-era TV cameras to ensure that the drama before us is an actual television broadcast in the making.

YULETIDE YUMMIES ON PARADE
Gingerbread displays at the Erie Canal Museum and Turning Stone Resort highlight the season B y M ike Jaquays The sweet taste and aroma of gingerbread has become as much a part of the holiday season as a tree, decorations, and gift giving. And after 32 years, the annual Gingerbread Gallery at the Erie Canal Museum, 318 Erie Blvd. E., in downtown Syracuse has become a true holiday destination for area families, giving all ages a place to enjoy quality time together surrounded by the gingerbread treats of the season. “Thousands of families from all around Central New York come visit the Gingerbread Gallery as part of their holiday celebrations,” explained museum executive director Natalie Stetson. “We love being a part of family traditions in this way.” She said they hear a lot of “ooohhh” and “aaahhh” exclamations as visitors look over the gallery. Many families visit the Gingerbread Gallery as part of their holiday tour of seeing the tree in Clinton Square, ice skating, or going to the Festival of Trees at the Everson Museum. “We also hear a lot of people say that they come with their children or grandchildren every year or maybe they used to bring their children, and now
they bring their grandchildren,” Stetson said. “The Gingerbread Gallery has been happening long enough now that it spans generations.” Stetson said she has been involved in the event since 2010. She enjoys watching the kids as they get older, and seeing what they come up with each season with their gingerbread craftwork. New gingerbread architects come out every year, as well as new sponsors, and this year there is added focus on the Erie Canal bicentennial, Stetson said. “Our bakers create incredible things that you’ve got to see to believe, but my favorites are always the ones inspired by the canal,” she said. “I just love seeing the creativity. And it’s easier than people think. Since the canal has been around for about 200 years, there are so many canal-inspired options out there. “Everything we do here should tie into our mission in some way. Showcasing the only remaining weighlock building in the United States, the Erie Canal Museum collects and preserves canal material and provides engaging educational experiences that champion an appreciation and understanding of the Erie Canal’s transforming effects on the past, present, and future. The Gingerbread Gallery fits in by providing an engaging experience within the walls of the weighlock building.” The annual Gingerbread Gallery began humbly in 1986 as a single-day gingerbread auction, growing in popularity to now boasting six weeks of gingerbread fun. There are more than 30 gingerbread creations from baker artisans of all ages this year, and numerous special events to enhance the sweet festivities of the season. The gingerbread preparations begin in mid-September, when a “call for bakers” goes out and they look for sponsorships, Stetson said. Building the village and decorating the gallery for the holidays takes a full two weeks. Stetson noted the storefronts are stored in the museum’s basement in the offseason, and getting them up to the second-floor Weighlock Gallery is “a fun adventure all on its own.” She lamented the recent death of longtime maintenance worker Rick Miczek, who assisted in the annual setup. “We figured it out with help from interns and volunteers, but there definitely was a learning curve. We really miss Rick every day. In fact, we’ve dedicated this 32nd annual Gingerbread Gallery to Rick and all that he did at the Erie Canal Museum.” Gingerbread creations start arriving two weeks before the gallery opens, so the crafters start working on them in October, and the space is adorned that week with
lights and ornaments and other festive holiday decorations. The week before opening day on Monday, Nov. 20, they place the creations in the storefront windows and display cases, hang sponsorship signage, make the gallery map, check the lighting on all displays, and finish their final touches. “By the time people start arriving on opening day, the space feels — and smells! — like a festive holiday canalside village,” Stetson said. Their grand opening gala is Friday, Nov. 24, 5 to 9 p.m., and features a festive evening of cookies, hot cocoa and the lively music of Merry Mischief following the tree lighting at Clinton Square. At the top of each hour, 50 free “Ice Skating on the Erie Canal” posters will be given away. Children’s Gingerbread Workshops will take place Saturday, Dec. 9, and Thursday, Dec. 28, at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., giving youngsters the chance to build their own gingerbread house using milk cartons, Graham crackers, icing, and other edible delectables. Admission is $12; preregistration is required to make sure there are ample supplies for the kids.
A Gingerbread Paint & Sip on Thursday, Dec. 14, 5 to 8 p.m., will give guests who are 21 and older a unique social environment to build a gingerbread house while enjoying live music and a cash bar. Admission is $15. The All Star Band Holiday Concert on Saturday, Dec. 16, 11 a.m., features favorite holiday tunes performed by the Stan Colella All Star Band under the direction of Joe Carello. This free event is held in the first-floor gallery of the museum. Stetson said that although a larger percentage of tourists visits the museum the rest of the year, more than 50 percent of its local attendance comes between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. “One of the most fun ways to get a new audience in for the Gingerbread Gallery is by hosting gingerbread house workshops for nursery schools,” she said. “Families from Syracuse, Liverpool, Baldwinsville, and East Syracuse come experience the museum, and see it as a fun place that they can bring their families back to throughout the year. I also love the surprise of seeing what our creative bakers came up with. We get such wonderful
and original things every year that really amaze me. Last year, we had an all-edible snow globe that was amazing and a quilting group built a beautiful quilt-inspired canal boat.” Stetson also gave kudos to the volunteers who make the Gingerbread Gallery the stuff of memories for so many Central New York families. “We couldn’t do this without their help, and it is always wonderful to see them and catch up. We have the best volunteers!” The Gingerbread Gallery runs from Nov. 20 through Jan. 7, daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., except for Dec. 24 and 31 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The museum is closed Dec. 25 and Jan. 1. Admission is $2 for children, $5 for seniors, and $7 for adults. For more information, call (315) 471-0593 or visit eriecanalmuseum.org/ gingerbread. Likely in answer to many a visitor’s question, Turning Stone Resort and Casino executive chef Dennis Miller says yes, the thousands of individual pieces that create the annual Gingerbread Village are indeed 100 percent edible.

Continued from page 13 Monday, Nov. 20, he and his own group of pastry-making elves will have worked nearly since they took down last year’s village to create their latest gingerbread artistry. “To be an authentic gingerbread village, all of the decorations and landscaping need to be edible, so we start planning almost a year in advance,” Miller said. “Our team spends more than 2,200 hours on the Gingerbread Village, including sketching out our designs, baking the gingerbread and all of the detailed decorating with icing and a lot of candy.” The Gingerbread Village has been ranked by the Forbes Travel Guide alongside venues like the Ritz-Carleton, Mandarin Oriental and The Broadmoor as one of the best gingerbread attractions in the country for the last few years; Forbes correspondent Jaydine Sayer complimented the village as “picture-perfect” in the 2015 review. Each Travel Guide notice has complimented Miller and his crew specifically for their attractive display. Miller, who has worked on the Gingerbread Village for four years, said he has a team of 30 employees in the pastry department working on building, baking, and decorating the village this year. The new Gingerbread Village will be 70 feet in length and features nine towering buildings including a bakery, a Tudor-style home, a church, a barn, and a train depot with an actual moving train, Miller said, plus ice skating rinks and beautiful landscaping. This year, they’ve added even more detail than ever to the landscaping and areas surrounding the village. They enjoy the village as much as their fans, Miller admitted, because making
the candy buildings is like a childhood dream come true. “We had fun taking a journey back to our childhood when we dreamed about houses, buildings, trees and roads being made from candy,” Miller said. “And we hope it’s nostalgic for our guests, too.” This year’s sprawling village scene is made from 500 pounds of gingerbread dough, 2,045 pounds of icing and more than 750 pounds of candy, Miller added. The holiday celebration begins on Monday, Nov. 20, 6 p.m., with Turning Stone’s annual Tree Lighting Ceremony. The gala will include the arrival of Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus and their elves, who will pose for photos with their guests and hear their wish lists. The festivities will also feature the grand opening of the 2017 Gingerbread Village, which will then be open every day through the end of the holiday season. Constructing the popular resort attraction is something the resort’s pastry department enjoys, especially in the challenge of trying to improve on the display year after year. “It’s an annual tradition here and something our guests really enjoy and look forward to every year,” Miller said. “Our team has a lot of fun with the Gingerbread Village and we keep thinking of new ways to outdo ourselves. Watching our guests’ enjoyment as they walk through the village is what it’s all about for us.” And although the gingerbread is all edible, Miller doesn’t actually recommend taking a bite when the display is taken down. “With more than 500 pounds of gingerbread, we have to start our baking in the summer, so the gingerbread is pretty old by the time we dismantle every-

thing in January,” Miller said. “The only safe thing to do is throw it away.” Admission to see the Gingerbread Village is free. Visitors arriving on Fridays and Saturdays from Nov. 24 through Dec. 23 will also enjoy live holiday entertainment in the Winter Garden. In other holiday celebrations, Turning Stone will be hosting their annual Thanksgiving Dinner on Thursday, Nov. 23, with a traditional buffet and live entertainment in their conference center. Seatings are every 30 minutes from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Adults are $42, children 6 to 15 are $22, and kids 5 and younger are free. Call (315) 771-7711 for information. The Claus couple will return for the weekly Breakfast with Santa and Friends every Saturday from Nov. 25 through Dec. 23 at Turning Stone’s Season’s Harvest Buffet for a meal and photo taking. Times are 7:30 to 9 a.m. and 9:15 to 11 a.m. Admission is $14.95 for adults,
$9.95 for children from age 5 to 12, and free for younger kids. Reservations are recommended. Holiday gift shoppers will find unique items to purchase during the Christmas and Crafts event at the Event Center on Saturday, Nov. 25, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 26, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with more than 135 artisan exhibitors and commercial vendors offering all kinds of handcrafted holiday décor, gourmet specialty holiday foods, artisan jewelry, designer fashions, and home accessories. Live entertainment will enhance the festivities all weekend. Admission is $6 for adults, $4 for ages 55 and up and military, $2 for ages 5 to 12, and free for ages 4 and under.

FURIOUS STYLES FOR A COOL YULE
Urban legends still dress to impress at downtown’s Bergan Brothers B y Walt Shepperd
Dave Bergan’s fashion consciousness came early. His family talked clothes at the dinner table. After all, his family was in the clothes business. “A family of retailers,” he recalls about growing up in Fulton, where his father started a clothing store in the late 1950s. “Throughout the years everybody in the family participated in the business. Finally my brother Michael and I decided to go in as partners together in the early 1980s.” The family tradition has settled in over the years until the point where Bergan Brothers Clothing is the longest continuously running business on South Salina Street in downtown Syracuse. The shop, 328 S. Salina St., is open Mondays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For information, call (315) 4719162 or visit berganbrothers.com. NEXT PAGE

Continued from page 15 Dave and Mike occasionally reflect on how tough business can be and whether they should continue. “But as good retailers, you put your feet down,” Dave observes. “You really take a look at what the reality of life is out there. We’ve decided to stay in downtown Syracuse. We want to show people across the country that this is a vibrant, active and beautiful community to do business in.” What was your very first sense of fashion? We grew up in the fashion business, so as a young boy that was the talk at the dinner table. We were a typical Irish Catholic family. At night all five children were queried on our daily activities, but then fashion and clothing would become the focus. Did you ever imagine you would end up with a store of your own? Probably not at all. In those days in Fulton, there were seven or eight small men’s clothing stores, predominantly white. As we moved our business into downtown Syracuse, we saw a very unique reason to have clothing for the Afro-American. We looked out onto Salina Street and saw the tremendous need. We actually moved the racks out on the sidewalk. I wore a change purse, similar to a carpenter’s nail
bag, and we would actually do business right on the street. Was it hard to find the clothes to stock? In those days the garment industry wasn’t targeting the black shopper, particularly the Afro-American male. It was difficult at first. As the years went on, and with a lot of coast-to-coast traveling, we found the sources who could supply us with the merchandise. But as the retailing developed, did you become more than just a clothes store for the communities of color? Very, very important: The NAACP has an award, and in 2001 it was presented to myself and my brother Michael for being a participant in the community. What a great honor that was at that time. Was one of your greatest achievements the creation of a black Santa Claus at Christmas time? All our clientele, and certainly all the children, would come in around the Christmas season, and they would go to the malls and confront themselves with a white Santa Claus. We thought it was very important to be so special for that community, and we had a fella working for us who took great pride in doing it, (the late) Mr. Zack Odum. We put him
11.15.17 - 11.21.17 | syracusenewtimes.com
right in the front window: We had an Afro-American Santa Claus, a very jovial man. It was a great success; it went on all three television stations. Is Santa Claus really black? Who knows? But what a surprise for the children when they came in for their own Christmas. It was a delight to provide that service to the community; I remember working closely with Jackie Robinson, who was with WSTM-Channel 3 at the time. You were also active downtown, such as being elected president of the Heart of Downtown Association. In the early 1980s we had a very active merchants association. We had more locally owned merchants downtown. We didn’t have the chains. We didn’t have the development you see now. We were a very active group for about 18 years. We had the Summer in the City activity, which would block off the streets for a weekend. We had the three-on-three basketball, which actually started right here in front of the store on the 300 block of Salina Street. They voted me in 18 years in a row. What did you learn about downtown from that experience? I learned where downtown really is. It’s
a mixing of cultures and we had to become aware of that and who the clientele really was and who we could provide our product. That’s when we really started to excel in providing fashion and fun. One of the most fun experiences must have been Live at Bergan’s, the in-house informercial show on WNYS-Channel 43 in the mid-1990s. Was throwing clothes on the floor your signature? It was kind of an accident that happened. I got frustrated, loaded up with clothes that were passed by one of my associates, and I decided to start throwing them in a nonsensical way out to the audience, and it became my trademark. I still have people, many years after the show, come in and say, “You’re the guy that used to throw the clothes on the floor.” In those days we came on right after Soul Train. We had the unique experience to have Mr. Don Cornelius, who isn’t with us anymore, actually call us. And I blew him off. His assistant called one day and wanted to offer us a “donut,” which is a preview on Soul Train, regionally, not nationally, to advertise Live at Bergan’s. I thought it was kind of a hoax, because we would get 40 to 50 phone calls every Saturday because we called ourselves Live at Bergan’s, although we were a taped show.

So I blew him off and then Channel 43 called and said, “Why did you blow off Mr. Don Cornelius?” Then he called, and I had the beautiful opportunity to speak with him, and he was so delighted to see that there was a TV show regionally that was making a unique effort in going after the excitement of the Afro-American trade community, the dance part of it, the fashion part of it. He gave us two free donuts, and they were very expensive in those days, two previews on his show saying “Coming up next, Live at Bergan’s.” Why is the show no longer broadcasting? They have many times asked us to do the show again, but there is the time involved with doing a production, and Michael and I are devoting our time to really expand Bergan Brothers on a national basis. That’s with our brick-and-mortar store as well as our internet facilities. Now what we do is a lot on the internet. How did you discover the internet? I have to tip my hat to my brother Mike. He’s the one who, many years back, had the foresight to realize that the retail men’s clothing, and perhaps any retail
Really Good Pie
situation, to sell your wares you’re going to have some sort of internet exposure. So Michael built the page, it’s all self-starting, we’ve done it all in-house. We started our internet business, and it’s flourished. The real secret for retail going forward is a combination of brick-and-mortar as well as the online business. You see that Macy’s is closing so many stores, but they are keeping their flagship stores. People still want to touch and feel and experience the fun and excitement of shopping for clothing right in the store, but then we find that 2 o’clock in the morning people are buying suits all across the country, in Iowa, in Illinois. So we’ve become a coast-to-coast national business, which is of great pride for my brother Mike and me. But I don’t think anything is guaranteed in the clothing business. I have a lot of students from Syracuse University that come down every year, and we try to show them that it’s an extremely risky business, but with a well-thought-out game plan you can have a nice career. But you have to be aware of the changes in the market that we confront. SNT

The new Warren Miller ski movie comes to the Landmark B y Bill D eLapp You know winter is right around the corner when a new Warren Miller Enterprises ski spectacular visits the movie theaters. And just like clockwork comes Line of Descent, another entertaining blend of skiers and snowboarders as they schuss down slopes in a picturesque globetrotting travelogue. The movie screens Tuesday, Nov. 21, 7:30 p.m., at the Landmark Theatre, 362 S. Salina St. Admission is $18; call (315) 475-7979 for details. Olympic ski champ Jonny Moseley again serves as narrator, as he brings his melliﬂuous deejay-styled voice to the microphone. He also revealed some tidbits about these productions in a recent telephone interview. When did you start working on the Warren Miller movies? I started narrating the movies with Children of Winter in 2008, and I skied in the ﬁlms as an athlete four times before that. About 10 years ago they were looking for someone to take over the narration, so I read a couple pages in the booth and everyone was on pins and needles. But I was super-tight, and afterward they opened the door and in came a six-pack of beer and we’ve been goin’ ever since. I have met Warren, but not enough times. I’ve been trying to get up to Yellowstone and ski with him but it hasn’t happened yet. During publicity for last year’s Warren Miller movie, athlete Chris Anthony mentioned that because digital cameras have replaced film

cameras, it now means that skiers have to ski even more so the filmmakers can get more footage. That’s interesting! The cameramen are such incessant perfectionists, and they really make these movies. They’re in better shape than we are, they work harder, they’re carrying the equipment, and they’re used to working long hours. They always want one more shot, or to do it from another angle. So when you don’t have to reload a ﬁlm camera, we get to ski more and wait around less. What was the first Warren Miller movie that you saw? As a 10-year-old I think it was Steep and Deep (1985), with skier Scot Schmidt in his heyday, as he was jumping off stuff. After that, I said “I want to be in a Warren
Miller movie,” and it really is a dream come true for me. I was more fascinated with being in ski movies that I was being in the Olympics. What is the approach to creating these movies? Do they begin the next project right after the last one? Or is there some interconnective plan similar to the one used in the Marvel Comics superhero movies? Every year they have more of a master design, but in the end it’s all in ﬂux, because it’s not like shooting a real movie with a plot. The weather conditions can change, or you can have a bad season; a producer can work on a segment for years before it can come to fruition. We try to come up with a theme to tie it together, but it’s up to the guys in the ﬁeld to create an existing story. The best plans tend to
get abandoned when you’re out there, so sometimes you have to be ﬂexible. Climate change is certainly an issue in what we’re doing in these movies and in the ski industry. What mainstream movies have great ski sequences? Obviously, Downhill Racer (1969, with Robert Redford) is a classic, and the James Bond ﬂick (1969’s On Her Majesty’s Secret Service) with the bobsled track. Aspen Extreme (1993) is my all-time favorite. I ended up getting on the World Cup tour and my roommate was Jim Moran, who did all the stunts like the 360 Iron Cross in that movie, and I learned that from him. And it ended up being the move that I won with at the 1998 Winter Olympics. SNT

Longtime pals Glen Campbell and Jimmy Webb
SONGWRITER JIMMY WEBB SPINS MEMORIES OF GLEN CAMPBELL Jimmy Webb has been a force in music since 1965. He’s the only artist to have won Grammy Awards in music, lyrics and orchestration. Webb is also the youngest member to have been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and he has worked with artists spanning Art Garfunkel to Linda Ronstadt to Barbra Streisand to Kanye West. On Saturday, Nov. 18, 7:30 p.m., the songwriter will recall his partnership with another music legend, as “Jimmy Webb: The Glen Campbell Years” will take place at Eastwood’s Palace Theatre, 2384 James St. Tickets are $35, available at brownpapertickets. com and at (800) 838-3006. For more information, visit jimmywebb.com and glencampbell.com. Campbell was an American singer, guitarist, songwriter, TV host and occasional actor (1969’s True Grit opposite John Wayne) who released more than 70 albums during his 50-year music career. The show offers a mix of songs, stories, music videos, virtual duets and other multimedia flourishes to depict his musical brotherhood with Campbell, who died Aug. 8 at age 81.
Webb was first introduced to Campbell at age 14. It was 1961 and “Turn Around, Look at Me” was on the radio. Webb was listening to the song while plowing wheat fields and got so distracted he ran over the farmer’s flower beds. “I decided right then and there I wanted to write a song for Glen Campbell,” Webb says. “I got down on my knees — my father was a Baptist minister — and I said, ‘Let me write for Glen Campbell and let him record one of my songs.’ The chances of that happening were astronomical, or rather the chances against that happening were astronomical. But somehow or another, that prayer was heard.” A few years later Campbell had two major singles, both penned by Webb: “By the Time I Get to Phoenix” in 1967 and “Wichita Lineman” the following year. “It was a friendship that lasted 50 years,” Webb recalls. “We had families, both big, with lots of kids. We just did the stuff that friends do. But we also performed a great deal together. Sometimes with orchestras and sometimes just the two of us. He
became one of the key figures in the story of my life.” It seemed like an unlikely pairing from the outset. While Campbell was conservative, Webb found himself “on the other side of the fence. I had a bandana on, jeans, I must have looked like a homeless person. He’d say, ‘When are ya gonna get a haircut?’” Webb has collaborated with a hefty list of country and pop music royalty, writing some songs for artists, but more often writing songs that he simply hoped would resonate with a listener. “I wrote ‘Wichita Lineman’ for Glen, but it’s one of the few times I wrote for someone else,” he says. “I really continue to write songs in a highly personal way and cross my fingers and hope somebody wants to do it.” Webb won the National Academy of Songwriters Lifetime Achievement Award in 1993, after having been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1986 and the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1990. His recent memoir, The Cake and the Rain, is filled with stories about working with figures ranging from Louis Armstrong to Frank Sinatra to Paul McCartney. But in the end, it all comes back to the song. “I’m a song title guy,” he says. “I believe in three-, four- or five-word phrases. You begin with ‘By the Time I Get to Phoenix’ and it’s a song title that immediately suggests the context of the song itself. It’s the first line of the song, it engages the listener. They’re locked in. Who is this guy? Why is he going? You begin to fill the story in and that’s what keeps the listener connected to the song. “My style is novelistic, detailed. I draw the audience into my problem or my world and hope that they feel like ‘I’ve felt that before, I just didn’t know how to say it.’ A songwriter’s job is to articulate these feelings. When you do that well, then quite often you find out you have a hit song.” But in “The Glen Campbell Years,” Webb emphasizes that the evening is about recognizing a great American talent. “People should come to the show because it illuminates one of the great American masters of music,” he says. “And it does so in different ways and perspectives. It’s fun. I think people will really enjoy it.” SNT
Advice from the Artist:
“The world is a much more difficult place now for people who are contemplating songwriting as a career. I can’t honestly say that I know what the path to success is. I never did. I never planned anything. I just walked into a very wonderful time in the business with a big demand for music. I think that people have to write a lot of songs and begin to establish a web of personal contacts by any means necessary. Be a performer as well. Play your songs. Come to the attention of artists. It’s an interesting time to get into the music business, but it’s not clear cut.” syracusenewtimes.com | 11.15.17 - 11.21.17

YOU MAY WISH TO CONTACT A LAWYER TO DISCUSS ANY RIGHTS AND POSSIBLE DEFENSES YOU MAY HAVE.Help for Homeowners in Foreclosure New York State Law requires that we send you this notice about the foreclosure process. Please read it carefully. Summons and Complaint You are in danger of losing your home. If you fail to respond to the summons and complaint in this foreclosure action, you may lose your home. Please read the summons and complaint carefully. You should immediately contact an attorney or your local legal aid office to obtain advice on how to protect yourself. Sources of Information and Assistance The State encourages you to become informed about your options in foreclosure. In addition to seeking assistance from an attorney or legal aid office, there are government agencies and non-profit organizations that you may contact for information about possible options, including trying to work with your lender during this process. To locate an entity near you, you may call the toll-free helpline maintained by the New York State Department of Financial Services at (800) 342-3736 or visit the Department’s website at http://www.dfs. ny.gov. Rights and Obligations YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO LEAVE YOUR HOME AT THIS TIME. You have the right to stay in your home during the foreclosure process. You are not required to leave your home unless and until your property is sold at auction pursuant to a judgment of foreclosure and sale. Regardless of whether you choose to remain in your home, YOU ARE REQUIRED TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR PROPERTY and pay property taxes in accordance with state and local law. 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 OBJECT OF ACTION AND RELIEF SOUGHT THE OBJECT of the above-entitled action is to foreclose a mortgage bearing date November 30, 2005 given by John R.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) I predict that during the next 10 months, you will generate personal power and good fortune as you ripen your skills at creating interesting forms of intimacy. Get started! Here are some tips to keep in mind. 1. All relationships have problems. Every single one, no exceptions! So you should cultivate relationships that bring you useful and educational problems. 2. Be very clear about the qualities you do and don’t want at the core of your most important alliances. 3. Were there past events that still obstruct you from weaving the kind of togetherness that’s really good for you? Use your imagination to put those events behind you forever. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You may be entertaining an internal dialogue that sounds something like this: “I need a clear yes or a definitive no; a tender revelation or a radical revolution; a lesson in love or a cleansing sex marathon — but I’m not sure which! Should I descend or ascend? Plunge deeper down, all the way to the bottom? Or zip higher up, in a heedless flight into the wide open spaces? Would I be happier in the poignant embrace of an intense commitment or in the wild frontier where none of the old rules can follow me? I can’t decide! I don’t know which part of my mind I should trust!” If you do hear those thoughts in your brain, Gemini, here’s my advice: There’s no rush to decide. What’s healthiest for your soul is to bask in the uncertainty for a while.
REAL PEOPLE REAL DESIRE REAL FUN.
fishing all their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after,” observed Henry David Thoreau. The spirit of Thoreau’s observation is true about every one of us to some extent. From time to time, we all try to satisfy our desires in the wrong location, with the wrong tools, and with the wrong people. But I’m happy to announce that his epigram is less true for you now than it has ever been. In the coming months, you will have an unusually good chance to know exactly what you want, be in the right place at the right time to get it, and still want it after you get it. And it all starts now.

ryteller Michael Meade, ancient Celtic culture believed that “a person was born through three forces: the coming together of the mother and father, an ancestral spirit’s wish to be reborn, and the involvement of a god or goddess.” Even if you don’t think that’s literally true, the coming weeks will be a favorable time to have fun fantasizing it is. That’s because you’re in a phase when contemplating your origins can invigorate your spiritual health and attract good fortune into your life. So start with the Celtic theory, and go on from there. Which of your ancestors may have sought to live again through you? Which deity might have had a vested interest in you being born? What did you come to this earth to accomplish? Which of your innate potentials have you yet to fully develop, and what can you do to further develop them?

today and during the next 10 months, you will learn more about treating yourself kindly and making yourself happy than you have in years. You will mostly steer clear of the mindset that regards life as a numbing struggle for mere survival. You will regularly dream up creative ideas about how to have more fun while attending to the mundane tasks in your daily rhythm. Here’s the question I hope you will ask yourself every morning for the next 299 days: “How can I love myself with devotion and ingenuity?”
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) This may be the most miscellaneous horoscope I’ve ever created for you. That’s apropos, given the fact that you’re a multifaceted quick-change artist these days. Here’s your sweet mess of oracles. 1. If the triumph you seek isn’t humbling, it’s not the right triumph. 2. You may have an odd impulse to reclaim or recoup something that you have
not, in fact, lost. 3. Before transmutation is possible, you must pay a debt. 4. Don’t be held captive by your beliefs. 5. If you’re given a choice between profane and sacred love, choose sacred.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) The next 10 months will be an ideal time to revise and revamp your approach to education. To take maximum advantage of the potentials, create a master plan to get the training and knowledge you’ll need to thrive for years to come. At first, it may be a challenge to acknowledge that you have a lot more to learn. The comfort-loving part of your nature may be resistant to contemplating the hard work it will require to expand your worldview and enhance your skills. But once you get started, you’ll quickly find the process becoming easier and more pleasurable.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) “Everything that can be invented has been invented,” said Charles H. Duell, director of the U.S. Patent Office, in 1899. “Heavier-than-air flying machines are impossible,” declared Lord Kelvin, president of the Royal Society, in 1895. “All the music that can be written has already been written. We’re just repeating the past,” stated 19th-century composer Tchaikovsky. “Video won’t be able to hold on to any market it captures after the first six months. People will soon get tired of staring at a box every night,” said filmmaker Darryl F. Zanuck, commenting on television in 1946. I hope I’ve provided enough evidence to convince you to be faithful to your innovative ideas, Scorpio. Don’t let skeptics or conventional thinkers waylay you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Of all the signs in the zodiac, you Sagittarians are most likely to buy a lottery ticket that has the winning numbers. But you’re also more likely than everyone else to throw the ticket in a drawer and forget about it, or else leave it in your jeans when you do the laundry, rendering the ticket unreadable. Please don’t be like that in the coming weeks. Make sure you do what’s necessary to fully cash in on the good fortune that life will be making available. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) In the game of basketball, if a player is fouled by a member of the opposing team, he is given a free throw. While standing 15 feet away, he takes a leisurely shot at the basket without having to deal with any defenders. Studies show that a player is most likely to succeed at this task if he shoots the ball underhanded. Yet virtually no professionals ever do this. Why? Because it doesn’t look cool. Everyone opts to shoot free throws overhand, even though it’s not as effective a technique. Weird! Let’s invoke this as a metaphor for your life in the coming weeks, Capricorn. In my astrological opinion, you’ll be more likely to accomplish good and useful things if you’re willing to look uncool. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) In 1991,
Aquarius rock star Axl Rose recorded the song “November Rain” with his band Guns N’ Roses. It had taken him eight years to compose it. Before it was finally ready for prime time, he had to whittle it down from an 18-minute-long epic to a more succinct nine-minute ballad. I see the coming weeks as a time when you should strive to complete work on your personal equivalent of Axl’s opus.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Thomas Edison
was a prolific inventor whose work led to the creation of electric lights, recorded music, movies and much more. When he was 49, Edison met Henry Ford, a younger innovator who was at the beginning of his illustrious career. Ford told Edison about his hopes to develop and manufacture low-cost automobiles, and the older man responded with an emphatic endorsement. Ford later said this was the first time anyone had given him any encouragement. Edison’s approval “was worth worlds” to him. I predict, Pisces, that you will receive comparable inspiration from a mentor or guide or teacher in the next nine months. Be on the lookout for that person.
