Study World of Inquiry’s example
I find it interesting that Mary Anna Towler (Urban Journal, August 26) calls for schools with an urban/suburban/ rural draw, and “superior teachers, facilities, and specialists” meant to “bring together in one place... students of a large area.” That idea, floated in the late 1960’s, did not actually go “nowhere.” It was the basis for the foundation of World of Inquiry Elementary School, which families clamored to get into, and which (now a K-12 school) is still a gem of the city school district. In the ensuing decades, however, access for students from outside the district was dropped for political and funding reasons. The exemplar is right in front of our noses, but we need to find out what happened to the broad geographic, socioeconomic, and cultural mix portion of a successful formula for that school so that we can keep from running into the same barriers.

Migrants are our responsibility
During World War II, millions of refugees in Western and Eastern Europe were forced to abandon their homes to flee the Nazis. Once they reached the borders of their homeland, where could they go? Who would take them in? It is nauseating to consider how often our nation turned its back on these migrants in their time of crisis. 2 CITY
Fast forward 70 years. According to Amnesty International, the number of migrants who have crossed the Mediterranean so far this year is approaching a quarter of a million. Speaking as a concerned citizen of the United States, I find it shameful that the world’s most powerful navy is not doing more to aid these refugees. The size and magnitude of the US Navy carriers alone could provide shelter to tens of thousands of migrants fleeing war. If we truly are a humanitarian force for good, then we have a moral obligation to not only rescue these people when things go drastically wrong, but to provide them with a firstclass escort to freedom. For years, the innocent people of Libya and Syria have been held under the iron fist of sadistic warmongers, bloodthirsty mercenaries, religious fanatics, and calculating politicians. The children of these countries deserve far better than this. In cooperation with our European partners, we should vow to rescue and liberate every single migrant who attempts to cross the Mediterranean. Let us not lose another precious human life when we have the resources and capacity to intervene. After-all, history is only doomed to repeat itself when we fail to act on the lessons we have learned. GEORGE C. PAYNE

Paint job doesn’t fit neighborhood’s character
As a resident of the St. Paul Quarter, I couldn’t be more hopeful about the mission of Hive Village — the local LLC that is refurbishing some of the neighborhood’s buildings into loft and retail spaces. However, I couldn’t be more despondent about the
SEPTEMBER 16-22, 2015
colors that The Hive has chosen to paint the facade of the otherwise gorgeous old building at 155 St. Paul Street. Bright blue-periwinkle and saturated primary yellow now sting the eye as one walks along this previously beautiful stretch of the street. The only color that works (the building is now painted three colors) is the neutral gray on the left, which easily could have been used for the whole facade. If integration with the rest of the neighborhood is The Hive’s goal, then from a visual standpoint, it already risks failure. If uninformed, I would never guess that this is the work of a smart, dedicated, local company. Instead, I’d think it was the gaffe of an outof-town developer who never stopped to get a feel for the neighborhood. I would also never guess that the ground-level retail spaces are intended for small local businesses (part of the admirable Retailent Rochester campaign). Instead, I’d think those colors are setting the tone for a gimmick-based chain restaurant. I wrote to Hive Village with a request to tone down the colors and received a prompt and appreciative response. I got the impression that The Hive DOES value feedback. If others have opinions, messages can be sent via the contact form at www.hivevillage.com or to email@example.com. I absolutely agree with The Hive’s goal of an authentic urban neighborhood, but the color scheme insults the character that already exists here. VALERIE BERNER
Breath tests beat court
New York spends millions of dollars processing DWI drivers, which consumes court and probation employees’ time and creates expensive programs.
About 10 years ago, North Dakota introduced “24/7 Sobriety.” It requires repeat offenders to report each morning and evening for approximately five months to a police facility to submit to a breath test to prove they have not been drinking. Instead of separating offenders from their cars, this program concentrates on denying them alcohol. They can drive all they want. They’re under court order, however, not to drink. Noncompliance results in a mandatory and swift arrest and jail time. Since 2005, over sevenmillion tests have been administered to over 30,000 people. A 2013 paper in the American Journal of Health reveals that the program resulted in a 12-percent drop in drunk-driving arrests and a 9-percent drop in domestic violence arrests. Punishment, although modest, is swifter, more certain, and less costly. It is much easier to hold the violator in a local jail for a few nights than to send that person to prison and require attendance at numerous programs and install an interlock system. Other cities in the US and UK have started using this program, too. Why can’t it be adopted here in New York State, at least on an experimental basis? But then it would dry up a nice source of revenue for government coffers. JAMES R. BOEHLER

Don’t write off Sanders
While I understand Ms. Towler’s pragmatism (Urban Journal, September 9), I was disappointed by her immediate dismissal of the Bernie Sanders campaign. At this point in 2007, we were raising similar concerns about President Obama’s electability. The Real Clear Politics poll cited in the article shows Sanders defeating Trump,
Bush, and Walker in a general election. His favorability ratings outdistance those of his competitors by a wide margin. Mrs. Clinton is a seasoned politician and a capable leader, but her fealty to Wall Street and big business along with her shifting positions on trade and the environment contribute to her growing trust deficit. Senator Sanders is the only candidate in the race who has made wealth and income inequality a central pillar of his campaign. His commitment to labor issues and social justice are borne out in his voting record. As someone who believes that economic inequality is the moral issue of our time, I can’t in good conscience lend my support to any other candidate. If every person who said that he or she would vote for Sanders if he were “electable” voted for Sanders, then perhaps he would become just that. RAVI MANGLA
Bet on a Republican president in 2017
Hillary won’t win the presidency and yes, you will have a Republican president in 2017. Republicans don’t hate Obama because of racism. They just don’t like the fact that he has been the worst president since Jimmy Carter and maybe one day you’ll wake up and see what we mean. JOHN SMART

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
The US and the refugees The plight of the refugees is heartbreaking, and horrifying. Little Aylan Kurdi was only one of hundreds of thousands seeking asylum – from Syria, Eritrea, Somalia, Nigeria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan…. “It is the biggest migration into Europe since the end of World War II,” writes Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan, “and is shaping up to be the first and sustained challenge of the 21st century.” Note that ominous word “sustained.” Violence; ethnic tension, government instability, incompetence, and brutality; climate change; population growth: all are feeding the migration pressure, and they’re not going to end soon. “The barrier that once protected the rich world from the poor has been crumbling for years, undermined by globalization and the information revolution,” editors at The Nation said last week. “No amount of barbed wire or steel can stand it up again.” Swift, broad humanitarian response is essential. We can’t turn our backs. And yet the more refugees the world takes in, the more we’ll find at our door. European Union doctrine says the refugees have a right to asylum in EU countries. But Europe’s capacity isn’t unlimited. “Ten thousand refugees is one thing,” Walter Russell Mead wrote in the Wall Street Journal; “ten million is another. Somewhere between these extremes is a breaking point at which the political system will no longer carry out the legal mandate.” Anti-immigrant sentiment in Europe, which was already a problem, is growing. Nor is hostility to immigrants rare here in The Homeland, where it has infested the current presidential campaign. Most of it’s directed against people coming in illegally, but Republican frontrunner Donald Trump makes no distinction. He’s been lashing out at all immigrants, saying they have “destroyed our middle class.” And yet it is far too easy – and a big mistake – to dismiss the concerns that citizens of a country have about immigration. Can every country care for the immigrants heading to its borders: feed them, house them, educate them, provide health care for them? Are there enough jobs – jobs paying adequate wages – for everyone, residents and immigrants alike? Will the influx of immigrants have no negative impact on residents already hurt by trade policies, technological advances, and industry decisions? As with so many crises, this one has deep, deep roots, and responses have to acknowledge all of them and address some of them. In a troubling New York Times
Broad humanitarian response is essential. And yet the more refugees the world takes in, the more we’ll find at our door.” column, Thomas Friedman suggested two possible responses. “If we’re honest,” Friedman wrote, “we have only two ways to halt this refugee flood, and we don’t want to choose either: build a wall and isolate these regions of disorder, or occupy them with boots on the ground, crush the bad guys, and build a new order based on real citizenship, a vast project that would take generations.” No, we don’t want to choose either, nor should we. And certainly a short-term response has to include accepting more refugees, including in the United States. But a longer-term response has to include economic aid to distressed countries. It has to include international efforts to protect the oppressed and to ostracize and weaken oppressive regimes, despite the resistance of governments like Russia. And here in this isolated, well-protected country, the refugee crisis needs to be on our mind as the presidential campaign intensifies. We need to push back hard against the anti-immigrant voices of presidential candidates and members of Congress. We need to support the push for a higher minimum wage, job training, and other measures that will provide stability here at home. And we need to support presidential candidates who value diplomacy over knee-jerk military responses to international crises. Max Rosenthal, writing in Mother Jones, reminds us that the United States took in hundreds of thousands of refugees from Southeast Asia after the Vietnam War, part of an international effort that resettled 1.3 million refugees. We were that kind of nation then. The coming months of the presidential campaign will tell us whether we want to be that kind of nation again. rochestercitynewspaper.com

RTA President Adam Urbanski says that teachers are concerned about their safety at school. FILE PHOTO
EDUCATION | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO
RTA prez: ‘Where is the outrage?’ Rochester city school teachers are not happy with the proposed changes to the district’s code of conduct or with recommendations to improve school climate, says Adam Urbanski, president of the Rochester Teachers Union. The Community Task Force on School Climate released a 65-page proposal last month. The group worked for months on a code that moves away from suspensions as the primary disciplinary tool to a policy based on restorative justice principles and social-emotional support. The proposal’s recommendations emphasize anti-racism training
for teachers, as well as training in restorative justice practices. But Urbanski says that the proposal echoes a familiar refrain of late: that teachers need to be fixed. Teachers’ concerns are largely dismissed, he says, particularly when many are worried about their safety. Urbanski says that alternatives to suspension, such as placement in special programs or schools, are needed for some students. Though some of the task force’s recommendations apply to all school staff, teachers clearly spend the most time with
students. Their support of the task force’s recommendations is widely seen as critical to the proposal’s implementation. Rosemary Rivera is organizing director of Citizen Action of New York and worked with the task force on the recommendations. She says that the group has been mindful of how teachers would respond to the proposal. “We are trying to support them,” Rivera says. “We’re not saying teachers are racists. We’re saying that institutional racism continues on page 22

The turnout for last week’s Democratic primaries was low, though sadly consistent with non-mayoral election years. In some races, fewer than 10 percent of registered Democrats voted. And when turnout is that poor, it’s hard to read any message into it other than apathy.
POLITICS | BYJEREMY MOULE
Low turnout, low drama Monroe County Democrats seem to operate at times as two or three — or more — parties under a single name. The divisions were palpable in some of this year’s City Council and County Legislature primary elections, which amounted to battles between rival factions of the party. But there were no upsets in those races; the party-endorsed candidates prevailed in each contest in the September 10 primaries. In other words, the party’s backing seems to still carry some weight with voters. And that’s a bit of good news for the county Democratic Committee, which has been going through a rough patch over the past year or so. Party chair Jamie Romeo says that the outcome of the primaries is due to the way candidates are picked. The candidates are selected by city committees, she says, so they have grassroots support at election time. Romeo now hopes that party members will put the primary divisions behind them and work together to get other Democrats elected, particularly county executive candidate Sandra Frankel. The turnout for last week’s Democratic primaries was low, though sadly consistent with non-mayoral election years. In some Legislature

and Council races, fewer than 10 percent of registered Democrats showed up at the polls. And when turnout is that poor, it’s hard to read any message into it other than apathy. But turnout did make a difference in a few races, notably two contests centered on the city’s northwest quadrant. In the Northwest District race for City Council, endorsed candidate Molly Clifford held off challenger LaShana Boose with 51 percent of the 1,432 votes cast. And in the County Legislature’s 28th District race, incumbent and endorsed candidate Cynthia Kaleh topped challenger Ricky Frazier with 52 percent of the 582 votes cast. Turnout was much higher in the primary for the County Legislature’s 23rd District seat, where more than one-quarter of registered Democrats cast ballots. The district includes neighborhoods in the southeast part of the city and northeast Brighton; historically, turnout is higher in the southeast than in other parts of the city. Jim Sheppard, former Rochester police chief and the endorsed candidate, pulled in 77 percent of the 1,487 votes cast in the race for the 23rd District, beating city building and parks director Mitch Rowe.

Some Dems see the victory as a swipe at Mayor Lovely Warren, since Rowe works in Warren’s administration and many of her Democratic critics are aligned with the southeast committees. But the race, in terms of turnout and outcome, may also say something about the value of door-to-door campaigning. Sheppard says that by election day, he’d visited some homes three or four times. He realized he was a high-profile candidate, he says, but he didn’t want to assume people would get out and vote for him. “The more personal you make a contact, the better connection you make,” Sheppard says.
Funding focus The Finger Lakes Regional Economic Development Council has chosen 36 projects that it wants to receive state funding. Each year, the council develops a list of priority economic and community development projects for the state to consider. Finger Lakes will compete against nine other regional councils in New York for money. The requests include $3 million for the University of Rochester’s Goergen Institute for Data Science; $200,000 for Cadenza Innovation’s planned advanced battery assembly plant at Eastman Business Park; $1.5 million for Rochester Riverside Convention Center renovations; and $2 million for Winn Development toward its Sibley Building projects. The council is also developing its application for the Upstate Revitalization Initiative — the state’s competition between seven Upstate regions. The three winning regions will each receive state economic development funding and incentives totaling $500 million. The application, which is due on October 5, will focus on optics, photonics, and imaging; agriculture and food production; and nextgeneration manufacturing and technology. Unlike the regional competition, the URI is supposed to lay out a strategy to invest the state’s resources and to use the funding to encourage much larger private investment and economic return. The funding awards for both the URI and the yearly regional economic development contest should be announced sometime this fall.

SEPTEMBER 16-22, 2015
Peter Scheutzow began investing when he was a child. While many young people his age spent their allowances on video games and gadgetry, he put his money in the stock market. Scheutzow says that he was curious about money matters and had an uncle who is a certified financial planner who encouraged him and showed him the ropes. “I traded inexpensive stocks on the New York Stock Exchange like Dell, Candies, and RadioShack,” he says. “I was fascinated by the thought of earning money without doing much work.” Scheutzow, an engineering student at Clarkson University, started a Scottrade account with several hundred dollars, and he says his parents and uncle prepared him to enter the stock market without high expectations for returns. He had to be willing to risk losing it all, they said, because that’s the price of learning. “I have acquired quite a bit of knowledge about market trends, trading strategies, diversification, and risk management,” he says. “I feel pretty confident in my trading effectiveness today.” When it comes to millennials and their understanding of personal finances, financial planning, and investing, though, Scheutzow is the exception. That’s worrying, he says; financial education needs to begin much earlier. Economists are mixed on the future for millennials. Is this younger generation savvy enough when it comes to charting a secure financial future? Will they be able to save and invest enough for their retirement years? While some reports show that millennials save and invest at about the same pace as their boomer parents and grandparents, others are less optimistic. “I think few of my peers invest due to two main reasons,” Scheutzow says. “The first being money is a taboo topic to discuss, which prevents them from thinking about it early on; the second being that investing is complex and not very glamorous.” Several factors weigh heavily on millennials. Many leave college and enter a crowded workplace where far fewer privatesector employers offer pension plans or even 401(k) retirement saving plans. Others are entering trades or government jobs with fewer strong unions to push for higher pension contributions and other benefits. Millennials are growing up in a more challenging environment than boomers, says Daniel Tessoni, assistant professor at Rochester Institute of Technology’s Saunders College of Business. College

loans, for example, are a huge obstacle for many millennials. “Theirs is a world that is more costly if you will than the boomers’, especially when it comes to things like higher education,” Tessoni says. “They really have to make important decisions regarding the relationship between what it costs to be educated and what type of career path they’re pursuing. Boomers could pursue almost any education and it would be financially beneficial. It’s not that way anymore.” A recent Christian Science Monitor article puts retirement prospects for millennials in grim terms. It says that college debt delays retirement planning. A 2014 college graduate owed an average of $33,000 in student loans, according to the Monitor. In 1993, less than 50 percent of college graduates had any debt and those who did had an average debt of $15,000 in inflationadjusted dollars. A lack of financial literacy is another serious problem for many millennials, says Carrie Starr, professor of business at Roberts Wesleyan College. Many young people lack even a basic understanding of how a checking account works, she says, because they have grown up using ATM cards.
“I’m a little concerned about the way they’re being raised,” she says. Many of Starr’s students remark on how lucky she is, she says, because Starr and her husband have successful careers and are financially stable. But luck has nothing to do with it, Starr says. The misperception inspired her to write the book, “Cheap Love: Living and Loving on Less.” “I wanted them to know that we did a lot of things frugally,” Starr says. “We saved, and it wasn’t easy. I tell them we spent our honeymoon in a borrowed tent. It wasn’t until years later on our 10th anniversary that we went on an Alaskan cruise. Financial security doesn’t just happen.” Starr says that with government safety net programs like Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid — once considered untouchable for politicians — now under intense scrutiny, millennials have to get financially savvy fast. Colleges are beginning to recognize this need, she says. Incoming freshman at Roberts, for example, take a seminar on budgeting, Starr says. “They need to know that it’s not up to mom and dad anymore,” she says. “It’s up to you.”
Boomers could pursue almost any education and it would be financially beneficial. It’s not that way anymore.”
D A NIE L T ESSONI, ASS I STANT P R O FE SSOR AT RIT
Undergraduate business students are required to take a class in personal economics, Starr says, and they can participate in the student endowment investment club where they become directly responsible for growing the college’s endowment. And Nazareth College has an online personal finance program called SALT, which school officials say is widely used. But millennials do have some advantages working in their favor, says Grant Dever, a University of Rochester business student who is educating himself on financial planning and investing. The Internet has changed the financial industry, he says, and anyone who is willing to take the time can learn. He started by reading “I Will Teach You to be Rich,” by Ramit Sethi, and he follows websites and blogs such as “The Coffeehouse Investor” and “Mr. Money Mustache.” Dever says that his generation’s view of money and investing has changed from prior generations. Even though he is interested in real estate as an investment, he says, he is less interested in being tied to a 30-year home mortgage. Dever and many of his peers lean more toward wealth-building, he says, instead of traditional forms of retirement planning. Dever views wealth as having the freedom to pursue his passions. Debt of almost any kind is the opposite of freedom, he says, and he doesn’t want to have to accept any job just to pay off debt. The combination of the student debt issue and the recent financial crisis has caused many millennials to be more politically engaged, Dever says. Many of his peers worry, he says, about what government programs will be available for them. And he says that there’s discontent with the current economic system because many people are working but their financial situation doesn’t improve. “We can agree that if you’re working hard you should become wealthier, not poorer,” Dever says.

Slow down, you move too fast Woody’s Cafe 2375 STATE ROUTE 332, CANANDAIGUA WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY, 7 A.M. TO 2 P.M., SUNDAY, 8:30 A.M. TO 1 P.M. CASH ONLY; AN ATM IS AVAILABLE ONSITE. 412-6432; FACEBOOK.COM/CAFEWOODYSCAFE [ REVIEW ] BY LAURA REBECCA KENYON
Growing up in New Hampshire, Chef David Buchanan’s mom would slice bacon she got from a neighbor down the road, and fry it up in a cast iron skillet. After the bacon was crisp, she’d swap it out for eggs, cooking them in the rendered bacon fat. Then, she’d toast slices of bread in the pan, and when it was all done, serve a hearty breakfast. The same kind of satisfying food can be found at Woody’s Café, a relaxed and unfussy breakfast and lunch spot that opened last winter in Canandaigua, with a menu and atmosphere reminiscent of a rural, New England kitchen. Woody’s is co-owned by David, a classically trained chef, and his spouse, Liz, who also serves as manager. The Buchanans have years of experience
working in restaurants — David opened seven restaurants for other owners — in addition to running a catering business. Woody’s is their opportunity to run a restaurant in the way they want: slow food in a comfortable space. Ingredients are largely organic and locallysourced. The dining room is painted in fall colors, decorated with vintage dining sets and rustic art. The small, 10-by-15-foot kitchen has only eight burners, two ovens, a threebasin sink, and a refrigerator — no deep fryer, no griddle, no microwave. Everything but soup is cooked in or on cast iron, which holds heat, sears beautifully, but cooks more slowly than standard commercial cookware. “I’ve done all the ‘fancy’ stuff,” David says. “Now it’s back to basics. We go through life at 90 miles an hour; it’s way too fast. I want people to come here, slow down and enjoy the food.” The food at Woody’s is uncomplicated and earnest. Half of the menu features rotating specials, made with what’s in season, and some are only available for a day. I’m still bummed that I missed out on the warm cheddar and apple cobbler with whipped cream; all the slices sold out before noon. But I snagged the last order of seared Andouille
sausage and chicken poutine ($12), a Saturday morning special. At its base were home fries: cut like French fries and cooked in cast iron with bacon fat, resulting in potatoes that were tender with bits of crispness. Both meats were thinly sliced and smoky; the sausage had a touch of snap and chew, with a lingering spice, and the chicken had a mellower texture and flavor. Yancy’s Fancy cheese curds melted into long strings under a bed of deeplyflavored gravy, beefy and redolent of onions. The other half of the menu is mostly static, and includes skillet grilled cheese, sausage gravy over cheddar biscuits — and the best French toast I have ever eaten ($7, or $10 with two eggs). It starts with English muffin bread from Rise and Shine, a white bread with a medium-tight crumb. Thick slices soak for hours, sometimes overnight, in a bath of beaten eggs, Pittsford Farms heavy cream, a touch of sugar and vanilla, and fresh ground cinnamon. When an order is up, David cooks the saturated bread in a pool of butter, so much so that the bread starts to taste like brioche. Cooked slowly over low heat, the outside becomes golden crisp but stays tender and custardy inside. Served with a side of Everson’s pure maple syrup, it’s the kind of
breakfast to make you close your eyes and groan with pleasure. There are two things to know about Woody’s. One: Woody’s is committed to making a low-impact on the environment. Food and drinks are served on compostable paper goods. According to David and Liz, this allows them to help enrich the local farmland while preventing chemicallaced dishwater from running off into the Canandaigua watershed. And second: the restaurant is located in a strip mall next to Vision Nissan, a place I never thought could successfully support a cafe. But new customers come in every day, existing customers keep coming back, and Woody’s first farm-to-table community dinner sold out in 4 days, so it looks like the location is doing just fine. “Everything we do is carefully thought about, including our location, music and atmosphere,” Liz says. “We leave a small footprint and serve really beautiful food.” Find Laura Rebecca Kenyon on Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest @LauraKenyon, and dig through her recipe archive at LauraRebeccasKitchen.com. rochestercitynewspaper.com

the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra and its new music director, Ward Stare, are open for business in tandem. Stare’s opening-night program eschews the customary audience-bait of a superstar soloist in favor of a purely orchestral, and pretty demanding, program. Samuel Barber’s “Adagio for Strings” is still profoundly moving; Tchaikovsky’s “Francesca da Rimini” still causes all hell to break loose; Dukas’s “Sorcerer’s Apprentice” still delights; and Respighi’s “Pines of Rome” is still the very definition of “orchestral spectacular.” 7:30 p.m. on Thursday; 8 p.m. on Saturday. — BY DAVID RAYMOND

Upward Groove. Temple Bar
E.J. Strickland begins his new album, “The Undying Spirit,” appropriately enough with a drum solo. Strickland is one of the top drummers in jazz, known for his work with his twin brother Marcus Strickland, Ravi Coltrane, and Russell Malone. That solo and his others on the album are filled with energy and creativity, but this is a showcase for so much more than his percussion prowess. Strickland wrote nine of the album’s 10 tunes in his highly distinct, free-flowing style, and they are all excellent. The CD’s one cover, which begins with another wonderful drum solo, is Cedar Walton’s “Hindsight.” Strickland’s arrangements are greatly enhanced by the quality of his band-mates. His brother Marcus is one of jazz’s top tenor saxophonists, and Jaleel Shaw is equally adept on alto. Their solos and harmonies are no small part of the magic here. The piano chair is covered by the superb Luis Perdomo, and star-in-the-making Linda Oh plays bass. Put these great players together with highly original compositions and an accent on the power of drumming and you’ve got one of the year’s best jazz albums. — BY RON NETSKY
Video Beast “Gooch” Self-released videobeast.bandcamp.com
Video Beast is one tightly wound, well-oiled renegade rock ‘n’ roll machine hailing from downstate. The band sounds tough. And let’s face it: you’ve gotta be tough to survive the New York City scene and its fickle unforgiving hoards. The band plays considerably fast and full-on throughout the 10 tracks on “Gooch.” It doesn’t hold back until it hits the straightaways, rather, Video Beast punches the throttle throughout the time and mood changes, never committing to one long enough for the doldrums to set in. The band makes fast, fun music with big guitars and interesting, unique, and unconventional harmonies. This is a young band (formed 2013) I can’t wait to hear more from soon. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

Red, white, and GWAR GWAR WITH THE BUTCHER BABIES FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 18 WATER STREET MUSIC HALL, 204 NORTH WATER STREET 8 P.M. | $19-$25 WATERSTREETMUSIC.COM; GWAR.NET FOR AN INTERVIEW WITH THE BUTCHER BABIES VISIT ROCHESTERCITYNEWSPAPER.COM [ INTERVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
Nothing is safe, nothing is sacred in the eyes of GWAR. For the last 30 years, this Richmond, Virginia-based metal band has eviscerated, sodomized, ejaculated, defecated, spewed, chewed, disemboweled, and destroyed social, political, and pop culture convention in a bloody, satirical display. It’s a troubled teen’s wet dream. It’s a comic book nightmare. It’s some of the best thrash metal you’ll ever hear. GWAR is beyond controversy with its borderline pornographic stage sets and costumes; it is violent in the extreme. Stunts like throwing fans in a meat grinder, urinating on the crowd, and decapitating a Pope look-alike, have landed GWAR in hot water — including
receiving an obscenity charge in Athens, Georgia, in 1992 where the ACLU defended the band and won. The band has had its ups and downs — and a revolving cast of characters — topped off by the death of its singer Oderus Urungus (Dave Brockie) in 2014. GWAR’s story is one of apocalyptic proportion: The band, known as the Scumdogs of the Universe, eons ago, set out to destroy the planet Earth after being banished there for their defiance. After More than a dozen albums recorded and hundreds of culture icons defiled, GWAR marches on. Guitarist Pustulus Maximus (Brent Purgason), paused from the mayhem and slaughter to answer some stupid questions from this earthling writer scum. An edited transcript follows. City: GWAR has set out to destroy the earth but has yet to succeed in that mission. Has it turned out to be a bigger challenge than you first thought? Pustulus Maximus: Actually this has turned
out to be quite the opposite of what you would call “challenging.” Humanity is destined to destroy itself, so rather than put in a bunch of work and wear myself out, I figure I can just sit back and watch society come apart at the seams. The already fragile psyche of the human
race has placed the utmost emphasis on ego, self-importance, and instant gratification in the realm of social media, thus nullifying any kind of relationship with the real world. This will collapse physical relationships and human connection entirely. Once they are left devoid of all emotion, except the one that craves attention to satisfy their hungry ego, they will have already been perfectly groomed to become the most perfect and obedient of slaves. Then we take over without firing a shot … after we let ISIS destroy the government infrastructure of course. Who currently deserves to get eviscerated by GWAR?
Donald Trump, Kim Davis, Josh Duggar, Jared from Subway, Kanye West, Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, and any other fool that claims Christianity is under attack. Anyone from a privileged background who cries about being victimized and seeks attention for it deserves more pain and suffering than they will ever receive in this life. Who does GWAR endorse for president this coming election?
Pustulus for Pres in 2016, of course. I have no financial backing so just write it in. We can forge some birth certificates when it comes down to it. No worries there. What are some important issues that play into that choice?
Well for one, the whole election process is a huge dog and pony show. It’s done to keep you people occupied so the country can be run by the men behind the curtain without being bothered. If you honestly believe there is a difference between a Republican and a Democrat than you have absolutely taken the bait and fallen for their ruse. They want to keep you busy so you fight amongst yourselves about who is better for the country. You label yourselves conservative and liberal to keep you separated from the search for truth, justice, liberty, and true freedom. The freedom you’re given is the illusion that you’re living a good life because you can afford a flat screen TV and the newest iPod. As your president, I will not lie to you. I will blatantly tell you the selfish reasons of sending our military to fight unjust wars and not take care of their health upon their return. I will tell you exactly why I will steal all of your money while you keep your head barely above the poverty line. I will also give guns to aborted children. I will grant marriage licenses for anyone to marry who they see fit. Everyone has the right to be miserable while legally chained to another person regardless of their sexual preference. It will be legal to steal from anyone with a net worth of over $200,000. Retirement is not an option as I will not change health care whatsoever to
ensure that no one lives long enough to collect social security. This will be the new America. Aside from a few points, you may not even notice much of a change at all. People have labeled GWAR a metal band. I think it’s more than that. What do you think?
GWAR is definitely more than just a metal band. Are we under the blanket term of “metal”? Yes. Heavy metal, punk, rock and roll; its roots are all the same. There are not many other bands that put on a huge show, fight epic battles, decapitate and disembowel foes, and commit vile sexual acts all while shredding guitars — wait, wait, wait a minute —nobody does all that but us. That’s why nobody has created the proper nomenclature for what we do. As far as the music, sure, heavy metal, but there’s more to this band than music. If a man can’t make a living by spraying blood and semen on people than that’s a world I don’t want to live in. Has being killed on stage by GWAR helped anyone’s career or social standing?
I certainly hope not. I’m pretty sure it’s against Richmond, Virginia, scene-law to help any of your peers succeed. That’s what I’ve learned from my experience. What is the message you want your audience to leave your live show with?
Don’t tell anyone this, but some of our shows contain satire … The message is clear. If you can be offended, you should be offended. You need to see and become aware of the hypocrisy of the government, organized religion, and the moral code imposed on society that isn’t really a moral code at all, just another method of making society a bunch of obedient boys and girls. GWAR is your salvation. Even if you don’t want to become aware of these injustices of the world, you can just rock out to the music and give your life to us regardless. Seeking to expand your mind with knowledge or becoming a purveyor of truth and justice really just leads to a life of misery anyway. Why not grab a beer and bang your head? How many gallons of blood and other bodily fluids has the band spewed out over the years?
The equivalent of how much oil has been sucked from the Earth in the name of progression.

Has the band ever considered doing a duets album? If yes, with who?

Seeking the Holy Grail “Monty Python’s Spamalot” REVIEWED SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 12 CONTINUES THROUGH SUNDAY, OCTOBER 11 GEVA THEATRE CENTER, 75 WOODBURY BOULEVARD CHECK WEBSITE FOR TIMES | TICKETS START AT $25 | GEVATHEATRE.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY LEAH STACY
“Monty Python and the Holy Grail” is officially over the hill. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the cult classic film, and Geva Theatre Center opens its 2015-16 season with a tip o’ the hat in the form of “Monty Python’s Spamalot,” best described as “lovingly ripped off from the motion picture.” The production opened on Broadway in 2005 with Tim Curry in the role of King Arthur. Original BBC “Monty Python” cast member Eric Idle developed the book, lyrics, and music, with additional music by John Du Prez (who also composed for the film “Monty Python’s Life of Brian”). The show was an instant hit, garnering 14 Tony award nominations and winning three, including for best musical. It’s a well-known fact that nothing is sacred in the world of Monty Python, and that goes for plot lines, too. Diehard fans of the Arthurian legend-based film may notice some big changes throughout the 16 CITY SEPTEMBER 16-22, 2015
musical adaptation. But many of the beloved, overused lines are preserved — “I fart in your general direction,” “It’s just a flesh wound,” “Bring out yer dead” — which Geva’s sold-out opening night audience seemed to thoroughly enjoy, anticipating and even quoting some of the lines along with the characters. Geva favorite Melissa Rain Anderson — who also directed Geva’s “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” and appeared in last year’s “A Christmas Carol” as Mrs. Cratchitt — expertly directs “Spamalot.” Anderson’s direction is conscious of the physicality and timing needed for the quirky production to work, and she collaborates well with musical director Nolan Bonvouloir. Leading the multi-talented cast as King Arthur is Tony nominee Hunter Foster (Broadway’s “King David,” “Les Miserables,” “The Producers”). Foster’s stature, comedic timing and deadpan reactions make him a natural fit for the role. Rochester-born actor Jennifer Cody returns to Geva for the third season in a row — she previously played Gwendolyn Pigeon in “The Odd Couple” and Mary in “Women in Jeopardy!” — this time as Arthur’s sidekick, Patsy, opposite Foster (her real-life husband). Though Patsy is usually played by a man (original Python Terry Gilliam played the part in the film), Cody shines in this role. She is always prepared with a sarcastic reaction, her adorable, high-pitched vocals soar and her out-of-nowhere tap dancing skills nearly brought the house down.
Another familiar face, Jim Poulos (Sir Robin), appears in the cast as well. Poulos is husband to Anderson and played Bob Cratchitt in last year’s “A Christmas Carol.” He is delightful as the cowardly Sir Robin and plays several other small parts throughout the show. Because it is such a silly, physical show, “Monty Python’s Spamalot” isn’t expected to impress with stunning vocal feats. However, Ashley Dawn Mortensen (Lady of the Lake), the “leading lady” parody in the show, has a powerful set of pipes that ranges in tone from jazzy to sardonic and seductive. The entire cast impresses in flashy songand-dance numbers like “Knights of the Round Table” and “His Name is Lancelot.” The set design by James Morgan has a cartoon feel (a nod to the illustrated interludes in the original “Monty Python” TV show) and resembles a pop-up storybook with its two-dimensional doors, suspended clouds and “expensive” trees. Susan Branch Towne’s costume design is vivid and inventive, yet cliché in appearance, adding to the tongue-incheek nature of the show. While “Monty Python’s Spamalot” is not a show that necessarily sets the tone for Geva’s 2015-16 season — it’s not a risky, new, or classic production — it is a crowd-pleasing choice for the opener and may bring in audience members who wouldn’t otherwise buy a ticket.

THEATER | “LA CAGE AUX FOLLES”
As part of the First Niagara Rochester Fringe Festival, OFC Creations and RAPA are co-producing “La Cage Aux Folles” (the musical theater adaptation of the 1996 film “The Birdcage”) at the Allen Main Stage Theatre, School of the Arts (45 Prince Street). The 11 time Tony award-winning show, with book by Harvey Fierstein and lyrics and music by Jerry Herman, tells the story of Georges, a drag club owner, and Albin, his partner and star performer. When Georges’ son announces his engagement to the daughter of a right-wing politician, Georges and Albin pretend to be straight — and Albin plays the role of a lifetime when he meets the bride’s family. Avid local theatregoers will recognize Roy Wise (Georges) and Billy DeMetsenaere (Albin) in the leading roles. Eric Vaughn Johnson (RAPA’s “In the Heights,” West Side Story,” and “Mary Poppins”) is director and producer. “La Cage Aux Folles” will run Thursday, September 17, at 7 p.m.; Saturday, September 19, at 8 p.m.; Sunday, September 20, at 7 p.m.; Tuesday, September 22, at 7 p.m.; Wednesday, September 23, at 7 p.m.; and Saturday, September 26, at 8 p.m. The show is recommended for 13 and older.

SPECIAL EVENT | 38TH DEPRESSION GLASS SHOW AND SALE
You may think antiques are for shelves — collector’s items to be encased and periodically dusted. But the Depression Glass Club of Rochester wants to encourage people to consider the utilitarian side of the elegant objects. This weekend, the club will host the 38th Depression Glass Show and Sale at Eisenhart Auditorium at RMSC (657 East Avenue). The event will feature a variety of glassware and pottery dating primarily from the Depression Era of the 1920’s and 1930’s through the 1960’s. The main floor will be filled with colorful club displays under a theme of “Back to Basics,” featuring a dozen vignettes of individual place settings. The displays will depict a variety of creative mealtime scenes using Depression Era plates, bowls, goblets, and serving pieces as well as other tabletop accessories. Dealers from across the Northeast will also show and sell their wares, and the club will offer glass identification (free with paid admission, three items per person) and an educational seminar each day.

Then came the double-whammy of “The Happening” and “The Lady in the Water,” before Shyamalan reached his career low point when he shifted to the realm of fantasy and sci-fi in the disastrous “The Last Airbender” and “After Earth.” The director now attempts to rebound with “The Visit,” a horror-comedy (though there was some debate after the trailer was released, it’s always clear that the movie is definitely in on the joke) that recaptures a bit of Shyamalan’s early promise, delivering humor and thrills in equal measure. Giving a modern spin to “Hansel and Gretel,” the film follows budding teen filmmaker Becca (Olivia DeJonge) and her younger brother, Tyler (Ed Oxenbould), as they take a trip to visit their estranged grandparents, with whom their mother hasn’t spoken to in 15 years. She left home for reasons that she refuses to explain, but whatever happened caused a rift in the family that remains unresolved. Becca plans to make a documentary of their trip, hoping to capture on film a bit of family history as well as some overdue catharsis and reconciliation. When they arrive at the secluded farmhouse, their grandparents seem warm
(PG-13), M. NIGHT SHYAMALAN NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
M. Night Shyamalan has had a rough go of it in recent years, but it wasn’t always this way. Fifteen years ago, the director was the King of Hollywood, when endless comparisons to Spielberg abounded in the wake of “The Sixth Sense,” “Unbreakable,” and “Signs.” But those early highlights gave way to an abrupt career nosedive that began with “The Village,” as the director started to become known more for shoehorning increasingly uninspired twists into his stories than for his ability to captivate an audience.

and friendly, and Becca wastes no time in calling them Nana (Deanna Dunagan) and Pop Pop (Peter McRobbie). But the more time spent with their new relatives, the more things start to seem a little off with ole Nana and Pop Pop. For starters, the children are given a strict bedtime of 9:30, and they soon discover that after that point Nana has a tendency to scamper naked about the house while clawing at the walls. Meanwhile, Pop Pop spends the days taking repeated trips out to the mysterious woodshed. The week goes on, and things grow even weirder. As each new day is announced in bold, red letters, we grow anxious that something terrible is rapidly approaching. Invigorating the overdone found-footage format, “The Visit” benefits from a pared-down, simple story, and a lack of big name stars. Taking the unintentional ridiculousness of something like “The Happening” and playing it for deliberate laughs, Shyamalan finds a looseness in the material that his previous films have never demonstrated. He uses Becca’s wannabe auteur as an excuse for his camera’s impeccable compositions, but her pretentious explanations of terms like denouement and mise-en-scène also act as tool for the director to poke a bit fun at himself. Shyamalan continues to prove himself an excellent director of child actors. DeJonge is appealing as the precocious and somewhat nerdy Becca. Tyler’s white-boy rapper persona can be obnoxious, but Oxenbould is totally convincing as an annoying little brother. I could have done without quite so many extended demonstrations

Three of hearts [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
of his freestyling skills (they usually end with an enthusiastic “’ho!”), but the actor has enough natural charisma that I wasn’t actively rooting for his untimely death. The two have a nice chemistry together, and the sibling’s relationship is always convincing and even sweet. As Nana and Pop Pop, McRobbie and Dungan face an even more difficult challenge. Their characters are a mystery, prone to shifts in demeanor that transform them from kindly old souls to menacing threats, often within a single moment. The speed at which their lucidity seems to melt away never ceases to be unnerving. Shyamalan’s love of storytelling and storytellers is always apparent, and he wraps the film in fairy tale motifs, from Nana’s repeated request that her granddaughter climb deeper into the oven to clean it, and Becca’s talk of her film providing the “elixir” her mother needs to heal her psychological wounds. Shyamalan ingeniously taps into childhood fears of being away from home for the first time, beyond the reach of parental protections. There’s a bit of body horror in the way he exploits our natural discomfort with the inevitable deterioration — both mental and physical — that comes with old age. While the buildup isn’t always particularly scary, it gathers a sense of unease that leads to a surprisingly nasty climax. It’s a tricky tone to master, and “The Visit” doesn’t always nail it, though the film has an awareness about itself that is a nice respite from the ponderous, self-serious tone of Shyamalan’s last few features. It’s a fun ride, and while “The Visit” isn’t a complete return to form for the director, it’s most assuredly a step in the right direction.
“The Reflektor Tapes”
“Learning to Drive”
(NR), DIRECTED BY KAHLIL JOSEPH SCREENS WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 8:45 P.M., AT THE LITTLE
(R), DIRECTED BY PAUL WEITZ OPENS FRIDAY
(R), DIRECTED BY ISABEL COIXET NOW PLAYING
Paul Weitz (“About a Boy”) directs Lily Tomlin’s first leading role in nearly 30 years, in the lovely, minor-key road trip comedy, “Grandma.” Tomlin plays tarttongued, septuagenarian lesbian-feministpoet, Elle, who as the film opens is in the process of breaking up with her much younger girlfriend of four months (Judy Greer). She’s still licking her wounds when her granddaughter, Sage (Julia Garner, TV’s “The Americans”) shows up on her doorstep, explaining that she needs $630 to procure an abortion she has scheduled for later that day. Temporarily broke — and having cut up her credit cards — Elle is at a loss to provide monetary support, so the pair climb into Elle’s shabby Dodge Royal (Tomlin’s actual car), setting off to collect what money they can, dropping in on whomever they think they might be able to wring a few dollars out of. All the while, they do their best to avoid clueing Sage’s mother (Marcia Gay Harden) into the situation her daughter has found herself in. Weitz’s script starts out a little sitcom-y, but deepens as Tomlin finds just the right notes to play, finding the warmth beneath Elle’s brittle exterior. Weitz not only provides Tomlin with a great character to play, he finally provides a decent role for Judy Greer after a summer of seeing her saddled with playing the worried mother at least three too many times. As Elle shakes down Sage’s loser of a boyfriend (Nat Wolff), friends (Laverne Cox, the late Elizabeth Peña), and even her ex-husband (Sam Elliott, whose scenes with Tomlin provide a wealth of emotion) the film fills in Elle’s history, growing into a poignant character study.
In the opening scenes of the pleasant but totally unremarkable “Learning to Drive,” Wendy, a fragile Manhattanite book critic played by Patricia Clarkson, learns that her husband has been seeing someone else and he plans to leave her (something he’s apparently tried several times before, though it appears that this time it’s going to stick). The worst of their ensuing argument happens in the backseat of the cab driven by Sikh political refugee Darwan (Ben Kingsley), who returns to her home the next day to give back the purse she left there. A driving instructor by day, he offers her lessons in the film’s central metaphor, as Wendy — who always depended on her husband and public transportation to get around — must learn to get outside her comfort zone and dig into the messy, dangerous thing we call life. The two inevitably develop a friendship, growing and learning from one another — even if their relationship seems awfully one-sided, as it remains unclear exactly what Darwan gets out of the deal. Both actors are better than the material they’re given, though Kingsley is saddled with the role of noble minority, and the character too often descends into stereotype. Clarkson gets more to play, but the actress deserves more. The film does gain some layers with the arrival of Darwan’s bride, Jasleen (Sarita Choudhury), through an arranged marriage. Her tentative steps into a new culture and environment are more insightful than anything that precedes it, but the film ends just as it seems it’s finally about to get interesting.
Montreal-based indie rock band Arcade Fire is the focus of “The Reflektor Tapes,” the impressionistic concertdocumentary-cum-art-film directed by Kahlil Joseph. Led by husband and wife duo, Win Butler and Régine Chassagne (the group has several other members, though we never hear from them in the film), the band performs songs from its great 2013 album, “Reflektor,” as we cut between studio and live performances filmed at several stops on the North American leg of a worldwide tour. Joseph made a name for himself as a director of avant-garde hip-hop music videos for artists like Kendrick Lamar and Flying Lotus, and here he ladles on all kinds of cinematic pyrotechnics: playing with film stocks, aspect ratios, and weird shooting formats. As a fan of the band, I admit that I was hoping for a little more insight into the group’s creative process, but Joseph deserves credit for at least attempting something a bit more unexpected.

The master of suspense utilizes all of his technical and storytelling acumen in this gripping thriller. A young woman (Ingrid Bergman) is recruited by the government to spy on a group of Nazis, while her contact (Cary Grant) must put duty before love to save her life. From a script by Ben Hecht, Notorious takes an almost masochistic delight in the gray moral areas in which it places its characters, and stands as one of the director’s most mature, engaging works. (Alfred Hitchcock, US 1946, 101 min., 35mm) Part of the series Ingrid Bergman: From Rochester with Love.

Tuesday, September 22, 8 p.m. Director Augusto Genina inventively visualizes Edmond Rostand’s characters and poetry—even literally, in the famous verbal duel scene between the gallant title character and the dullard who mocks his appearance. Not the least of the film’s attractions is its beautiful coloring; it has its hues “painted” on the film itself by a stenciling process, which give it a luster akin to vivid watercolor. This will be an optically poetic experience in many ways—one not to be missed. (Augusto Genina, Italy 1922, 104 min., 35mm) Live piano by Philip C. Carli. Part of the series Silent Tuesdays and The Legacy of James Card.

exists. We want to provide them with the tools to create a more positive school environment.” Data on suspensions in city schools shows that children of color are suspended at disproportionately higher rates than white children for the same kinds of infractions. Urbanski points out that teachers don’t suspend students. But Rivera says that teachers often initiate the process with a referral to an administrator. “What we’re saying is, what do we need to do to lower those referrals and help you with classroom management?” Rivera says. That misses the point, Urbanski says, and buys into the narrative that teachers are the problem. He cites a recent alleged incident at School 8 involving Cynthia Elliott, vice president of the city school board. The RTA filed a class action grievance with the district after Elliott allegedly interrupted a recent professional development meeting and told teachers that if they don’t feel comfortable teaching in an urban setting, to leave. The grievance says that Elliott repeatedly cursed at the teachers in the meeting. “I think this has a direct relevance to the Code of Conduct policy,” Urbanski says. “You can’t teach what you can’t model.” Elliott did not respond to requests for comment on this story. Urbanski says that Elliott seems to be saying that teachers should resign themselves to physical and verbal abuse if they want to work in city schools and that they better not complain about it. “The district has now lost any moral standing on the issue of Code of Conduct,” he says. “Why is it that the teachers union is the only one saying ‘You can’t talk to teachers this way’? Where is the outrage?”

Minutes from Monroe
33 Sumner Park
Tucked away on a quiet street with a lovely park-like median, it’s easy to forget that 33 Sumner Park is just a block from Monroe Avenue and its eclectic mix of shops, restaurants, bars and the Rochester Arts Center. Walk a few blocks more to Park Avenue to find an entirely different mix of shops, eateries and pubs. Built in 1889 as a speculative home for the Sumner White Tract neighborhood, the Queen Anne style home has had only four owners in its 126 years. The home was built for one of the owners of Alling and Cory, a paper merchant company that made its home in Rochester. The most recent two owners have taken special care to preserve the history and to add modern enhancements that blend with the home’s character. Original stained glass windows—one by the front door and one on the stairway landing—greet you as you enter through the generous front porch. Hardwood floors and the original gumwood trim are found throughout the home. To the right of the entryway is a parlor with a bay window. The parlor opens to the dining room, which features an elaborate, decorative, woodtrimmed fireplace. Two sets of pocket doors separate these living spaces, allowing flexible use of space. A first floor full bathroom has the original claw foot bathtub and the upstairs full bathroom has a recently added walk-in tiled shower with a wraparound bench.
At the rear of the house, the kitchen has been opened up and expanded from its original footprint. The addition of a tin ceiling, a center island (made with re-purposed hardwood flooring from a basketball court), and the exposed brick from the fireplace blend seamlessly with the historic character of the home. Off the kitchen is a small room that could function as a sunroom, office, or breakfast nook. Exit the kitchen through the sliding doors and enjoy lilacs, dogwoods and Japanese maples from the deck or beside a small pond on a stone patio in the fenced backyard. The original carriage-house style garage remains and a portion has been converted into a covered patio. The vaulted ceilings of the unfinished attic scream potential: A master suite? A man cave? A rec room? Both the furnace and roof have recently been updated. The parkway across the street is a great spot for meeting neighbors and is jointly owned by the neighbors who abut the park. 33 Sumner Park is a spacious 2,260 square feet. It is currently listed at $159,900 with Vincent Pace of Vincent Associates Real Estate. For more information, contact Vincent at 585-414-7118. by Arn J.
