The day after the latest gun carnage, I saw a window sticker on a SUV that read “piss off a liberal, buy a gun.” Well, it worked. I was pissed off. I wonder if that SUV driver realized how close he might be to the Vegas shooter. We are all just a stroke or severe head trauma or chemically confused thyroid away from a drastically altered personality that could radically compromise our judgement. My job requires a yearly physical and bi-yearly testing to assess my competence to safely operate a school bus. Airline pilots and railroad engineers are similarly tested periodically, because lives are at stake. When you get behind the wheel of a vehicle or pick up a loaded firearm, regardless of your intentions, you have people’s lives in your hands. Yet when you suggest regular psychological and competency testing for gun owners, any kind of rational dialogue becomes impossible. It’s as if their guns are welded to their hearts. I know gun people. I have them in my family. Two of my best friends are gun owners. They are good people, and I love them. Even though I am a vegetarian, I understand the deep human drive to hunt. I also understand hunting’s vital role in maintaining a balanced ecology. But gun owners defend semiautomatic military weapons with 30- and 100-round magazines and 1000-round stockpiles of 2 CITY

ammunition as necessary deterrents to governmental interference with their constitutional liberties. They cannot be disabused of this fantasy, even when you ask them to consider how well the rebellion in Syria is going or how well our own civil war went in terms of the colossal suffering on both sides. I wonder how many gun owners have actually seen some one shot by a firearm – like the young mother I saw shot to death by her preschool son, who had found daddy’s loaded .22 caliber rifle. Or the woman whose angry boyfriend shoved his gun up her vagina and pulled the trigger. Or the severely disturbed father who put his .357 magnum in his mouth and blew himself away in front of his wife and 13-year-old daughter. What could gun lovers say to the families of these people that would justify their opposition to even the barest of measures to stem this national disgrace? I’m damn tired of “thoughts and prayers” and flags at half-staff and people who think guns are for pissing off liberals and wienie politicians who are too afraid to stand up to gun lobbies to protect children. This is cowardly, irresponsible behavior in the face of a continuing national tragedy. JOHN KASTNER

Towler’s statement [in Urban Journal’s “Las Vegas, Guns, and the Evil of Inaction”] that the president could do something about mass shootings is emotional at best. Just what is that “something” that could have kept this maniac from committing his killing spree? What gun law not already on the books would have prevented this tragedy? None. In reference to Towler’s assertion that more background-check legislation is needed, the next time there

OCTOBER 11 - 17, 2017

is a gun show in Rochester, she should try buying a gun without undergoing a background check. I guarantee it’ll never happen. Automatic weapons are already illegal to possess in the US. So are armor-piercing bullets in handguns. The reason that they are not illegal for rifles is that just about every type of rifle ammunition can already pierce most body armor. Outlaw semi-automatic weapons from law-abiding citizens? Why? So that they will be only available to criminals who purchase them on the streets illegally?

Maybe automatic and semi-automatic guns are responsible for only 2 percent of homicides and 1 percent of injuries, but keep in mind that they kill and injure vast numbers of people in one fell swoop. Handguns kill one or two people at a time and are rarely random. No one yet has been able to present a legitimate argument for anyone having semi-automatic or automatic guns in their homes or a reason to stock pile those weapons – unless, of course, you honestly believe Armageddon is right around the corner. PADUCA

CUPID

Yes, outlaw semi-automatic weapons from law-abiding citizens. Because law-abiding citizens can snap... can have mental illnesses... and can kill just as easily as any criminal on the street. When nothing was done after Newtown, I pretty much gave up on this country doing any kind of gun legislation. I don’t want your pistols. I don’t want your rifles. I want automatic and semi-automatic weapons gone. Someone or some company is making a lot of money off these guns, and that is the real evil. PADUCA

The blame lies with the US Supreme Court (or rather five members of the high court) who, in their landmark 2008 decision in District of Columbia v Heller, misread the clear language of the Second Amendment which made a direct link between service in a “well regulated militia” and the right to “keep and bear arms.” The five justices created the wholly new “right” of “personal protection” to justify the ownership of massive private arsenals by every gun nut in America. ROBERT PATTERSON

What killed 3000 people in the Twin Towers in NYC? What killed over 200 people when a co-pilot slammed into the Alps? Airplanes. What killed and injured over 200 people in Paris, France, and at Ohio State University? Trucks. And what has killed over 50 million innocent unborn children? Planned Parenthood. Over 60 percent of the homicides by a gun are suicides. On average, there are 12,000 gun homicides per year in the US. If my math is correct, 7200 are suicides. I would prefer politicians to focus on mental-health funding. Make no mistake: I am full of sorrow for the tragic event that occurred in Las Vegas. But a knee-jerk reaction to pass something based on emotion, and just for the sake of some politicians to aggrandize themselves isn’t going to solve a problem like this. Every gun show I have been to does and immediate NIC check for a rifle or shotgun if you make a purchase. For a pistol, you have to buy and pay for the pistol, then go to the county clerk’s office to register it on your permit before you receive the gun from the dealer, then go back to the dealer to pick up the gun, which they give

you after they register it. DAVE 1952

If only gun ownership were as well-regulated as car ownership or plane ownership. We’d have mandatory safety training, periodic relicensing, loss of access if convinced of serious misuse that put the public at risk, required liability insurance, manufacturer civil liability, government data collection and research, etc. MARK MCKINZIE

I would be happy to turn in my gun if the government could protect me from any violent crime – every second of the day. Until that happens, I will fight for my right to protect myself and my family from violent acts. And I’m not an NRA member, or wish to be. I’m just a person who loves my family and friends, and will protect them if need be. I’ve had a pistol permit for 40 years, which I obtained for protection, not hunting. Should something be done? Of course, but what? Put a chip in the forehead of every gun owner, one that will analyze evil thoughts? Banning guns will do nothing except increase the number of deaths, because the common citizens have no way to protect themselves now, until the police finally get to the scene. Criminals will have easy access to buy illegal guns, just like they do now. You can’t legislate against evil effectively. Nut jobs will find another method to attain their goal. Remember the 87 people killed in the 1990’s, due to a fire a jealous boyfriend started at a club? Or what about the arson fire at the Holiday Inn in Greece that killed 10? Until you can corral the evil thoughts in people’s minds, deaths will occur through various means. MITCH

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER

Trump, Roy Moore, and the tribes we cling to Donald Trump may not have squashed the Affordable Care Act yet, but he and his supporters are doing plenty of damage. In the past couple of weeks alone, the president has ramped up his threats against North Korea, eroded women’s access to birth control, and prepared to decertify the Iran nuclear deal. The Justice department is arguing that federal civil rights law doesn’t protect LGBTQ Americans from employment discrimination. The EPA’s Scott Pruitt is repealing a key greenhouse-gas emissions rule. Roy Moore, who believes the Bible supersedes US law, easily won the Alabama primary. And encouraged by Moore’s victory, Steve Bannon is spearheading an effort to get more right-wing extremists elected to Congress. Faced with this, the Republican leadership seems intimidated and powerless. And while Trump’s base support has eroded a bit, many of the Americans who elected him seem perfectly happy. In a recent Wall Street Journal column, Gerald Seib recalled a conversation he had with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, nine months before the 2016 election. Emanuel, Seib wrote, predicted that Trump would win. Emanuel’s reasoning, Seib recalled: “With this blue-collar, screw-you appeal he has, why should anybody assume that Rust Belt states like Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Michigan are safe for Hillary?” Much of New York State outside of the cities responded to Donald Trump’s appeal, too. All around the country, people packed the airplane hangars to cheer him, and then elected him president. Crude comments about women, insults of war veterans... none of that turned them away, and they’re still cheering him. Roy Moore may be a sign of things to come. Where’s all this leading? I found a particularly troubling assessment in Andrew Sullivan’s New York magazine article, “America Wasn’t Built for Humans.” Sullivan says he has sometimes wondered what it would be like to live in a “tribal society,” and he cites places like Iraq, Syria, the Balkans, Beirut.... “Even in successful modern democracies like Britain and Spain,” he writes, “the tribes of Scots and Catalans still threaten a viable nationhood.” The Scots and the Catalans, he writes, “have been full citizens of their respective nations, but their deepest loyalty is to something else.” We don’t have to speculate about what it would be like to live in a tribal society, though, Sullivan says. “Because we already do.”

The Civil War almost ended our democratic experiment. “And here we are,” writes Andrew Sullivan, “in an equally tribal era.”

And then comes his warning: “The project of American democracy — to live beyond such tribal identities, to construct a society based on the individual, to see ourselves as citizens of a people’s republic, to place religion off-limits, and even in recent years to embrace a multiracial and postreligious society — was always an extremely precarious endeavor.” The success of this country’s democracy, Sullivan writes, has always depended on “an 18th-century hope that deep divides can be bridged by a culture of compromise, and that emotion can be defeated by reason.” The Civil War almost ended our democratic experiment. “And here we are,” he says, “in an equally tribal era, with a deeply divisive president who is suddenly scrambling Washington’s political alignments, about to find out if we can prevent it from failing again.” “Tribalism, it’s always worth remembering, is not one aspect of human experience,” Sullivan writes. “It’s the default human experience.” If that’s the case, it will take a lot to pull us together, especially given the seemingly unrestrained anger erupting in this country. Sullivan does think there’s a way out, if we can learn to value one another as unique individuals, and if we can learn to forgive one another for perceived and real faults. “No tribal conflict has ever been unwound without magnanimity,” he writes. It’s hard, though, to imagine this deeply divided country embracing magnanimity and coming back together. Hard to imagine it, too, when things like racism seem to be part of the nation’s DNA. Strong leadership, in multiple quarters, seems essential. And there, we’re in very short supply.

New Amtrak station opens

Rochester’s new Amtrak station opened its doors, and the trailer that was serving as an interim boarding point was taken out of service. The $44.3 million Rochester Intermodal Station replaces a building that was erected 36 years ago and was intended for temporary use. The new station has an improved baggage handling system, a two-sided boarding platform, and two dedicated passenger rail tracks to prevent bottlenecks. It’s also compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

RIT wrong in firing Kontor, committee says

In another controversy at a local university, the Rochester Institute of Technology’s Staff Grievance Committee found that RIT acted inappropriately in firing Annamaria Kontor earlier this year for prescribing hormone replacement therapy to transgender students. The committee said the university’s staff performance policy wasn’t administered properly. The committee didn’t recommend that Kontor be reinstated at RIT’s Student Health Center, but it did recommend that the students’ treatments continue. The committee’s report now

goes to RIT President David Munson for a final determination.

Domestic violence numbers flat

The number of domestic violence reports in Monroe County remained flat over the past year, with 4,789 reports over the last 12 months as compared to 4,804 the previous year, according to a report released by Willow Domestic Violence Center. Domestic violence rates in Monroe County have decreased since 2010, but countywide they’re still 1.5 times higher than the state average. In the City of Rochester, the rate is 2.5 times the state average.

Penfield plans to buy property

The Town of Penfield has signed a letter of intent for the purchase of the former Shadow Pines golf course from its owner, Oldcastle. Residents became alarmed when they learned the owner had put the golf course, as well as the neighboring Shadow Lake golf course, up for sale and that a developer was eyeing the properties for housing. The town is working to complete environmental reviews and is consulting with financial advisors and attorneys, but it and the owner hope to complete the transaction by the end of October.

President Trump has talked repeatedly about building a wall on the US border with Mexico, but he’s been mum on the institutional wall he’s been tearing down: the separation of church and state. That’s part of the message that Barry Lynn, the retiring executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, will be bringing to Rochester later this month. “Trump and his administration are systematically destroying the institution that makes democracy possible,” Lynn said in a recent phone interview. Lynn will be delivering a talk at 7 p.m. on Monday, October 23, at Asbury First United Methodist Church, 1050 East Avenue. His topic: “The Trump Administration Really, Truly Hates Separation of Church and State.” The event, which is sponsored by the local Americans United chapter, is free and open to the public. Trump’s strongest support has come from the Religious Right, and

while his support has fallen among other groups that voted for him, Lynn says, evangelicals still firmly back him. And Trump is responding to an irrational belief that their religious freedom is under attack. As the latest example, Lynn cited the administration’s recent decision to no longer require employers to offer health care plans that include free contraception for women. “There is some religious persecution going on in America,” Lynn said, “but it has nothing to do with Christianity, which is alive and very healthy.”. Lynn’s biggest concern is the real possibility that Trump will stack the Supreme Court with ultra conservatives. “We would have a wretched country,” he said, “one where you would not be able to practice religious freedom unless it was the accepted religion, unless you were an evangelical Christian.”

Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo is advancing a plan to hire more Child Protective Services caseworkers and to boost caseworker pay. The plan is aggressive and speaks directly to some of the concerns that advocates and staff have identified around CPS.

YOUTH | BY JEREMY MOULE

Dinolfo plans to boost CPS staffing Child-protective workers move from one crisis to the next; it’s the nature of their jobs. They often have to set aside followup work on existing cases when new, potentially urgent or severe, cases come in. Often, when improvements are made in the public agencies that investigate child abuse and neglect reports, they happen the same way. Staffing and caseloads for Monroe County’s Child Protective Services have been a concern for children’s advocates and the Monroe County Federation of Social Workers – the union that represents CPS caseworkers – for several years. But the issues received greater public attention after the November 16, 2016, death of 3-year-old Brook Stagles, who died from abuse-related injuries. A state abuse-and-neglect hotline had received two reports about Stagles that October, both alleging maltreatment. One concerned her biological mother and the other her biological father. The county investigated both reports thoroughly and found nothing that warranted intervention, Department of Human Services Commissioner Corinda Crossdale said during a press conference last week. Crossdale reviewed the

investigation at the request of County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo. Dinolfo is now advancing an eightpoint plan to bolster the department as part of her 2018 budget proposal. The plan is aggressive and speaks directly to some of the concerns that advocates and CPS staff have identified. She said her budget will fund 30 new caseworker positions, which will bring staffing back to pre-2010 levels. And it will boost caseworker pay, which will help with recruiting and retaining staff, she said. “I believe strongly that county government can always do better,” Dinolfo said. Her proposal would also reinstate the local child abuse and neglect reporting hotline, which former County Executive Maggie Brooks eliminated in 2015 to save money. The county switched to a state-run reporting hotline, and the following year county CPS caseworkers had to investigate an additional 1,000 cases. Representatives of the Monroe County Federation of Social Workers have said that the state doesn’t screen reports from the hotline much, if at all. The result: Monroe County caseworkers have to investigate any local reports

received by the hotline – even something as trivial as a child whose pants were sagging. That’s an exhaustive process that requires many hours of work. And in cases where caseworkers find children who need basics such as food or clothing, they have to take immediate action to secure those things for them. The federation has also said that when the previous administration eliminated the local hotline, it did little planning to fill existing vacancies or prepare for the increased caseloads, which everyone expected to some degree. CPS workers have been inundated as a result and have put in hours of overtime trying to catch up. Dinolfo’s plan would also provide caseworkers with digital tablets so they can make reports from the field, and she says she will boost recruitment, training, and mentorship efforts. The Dinolfo administration had previously made some efforts, centered mostly around civil service, to fill vacancies quicker. But it also struggled with recruiting and retaining enough qualified people to fill the empty caseworker positions. “The Federation of Social Workers is pleased with the Monroe County

Administration’s recently announced plan to address the concerns that we, and many other individuals and organizations in the community, have raised regarding Child Protective Services,” the federation said in a written statement. It also thanked Dinolfo and Department of Human Services Commissioner Corinda Crossdale and said it hopes “that this plan represents an ongoing commitment to fully support Child Protective Services staff and the continues on page 8

ELECTIONS | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

Another big race: Baxter versus O'Flynn For local voters, this year’s high-profile political race is probably for Rochester mayor. But the November 7 general election ballot includes one of the other most important offices in the county: that of Monroe County sheriff. The job isn’t for lightweights. Whoever is elected sheriff this year will oversee an organization that has about 1,100 employees and nearly a $150 million budget. And the sheriff ’s responsibilities go well beyond road patrols. The sheriff ’s office has lawenforcement jurisdiction over the entire county and provides it directly for 13 towns and four villages. The sheriff oversees the jail, the SWAT team (special weapons and tactics) and hostage negotiations, the scuba dive unit, foreclosure proceedings, crime scene analysis in many instances, and courthouse security. This year, voters will have a somewhat unusual choice for sheriff: longtime Republican incumbent Patrick O’Flynn or his Democratic challenger, Todd Baxter. While O’Flynn can appear a bit corporate compared to the more gregarious Baxter, both men are well-known in the law enforcement community and have reputations as experienced leaders. O’Flynn, who went into law enforcement straight out of high school as a deputy sheriff trainee, was made undersheriff in 1988, and is serving his 16th year as sheriff. Baxter spent 22 years with the Rochester Police Department, was police chief for the Town of Greece from 2010 to 2014, and more recently was executive director of the Veterans Outreach Center. For many voters, the choice between O’Flynn and Baxter may be a tough one. Baxter was a longtime registered Republican, which is not unusual in law enforcement. Earlier this year, however, he switched parties, becoming a Democrat after talks he says he had with State Assembly Leader Joe Morelle and other local Democrats. For hardcore Republicans who vote strictly along party lines, the choice for sheriff may be reflexive: stick with O’Flynn. But for those who have grown weary of incumbent candidates, Baxter may be an option. (Many area Republicans heaped praise on him when he took over what was by most accounts a dysfunctional police department in Greece.) For some Democrats, the choice may be tricky. Neither O’Flynn nor Baxter 6 CITY

is a progressive, by any means. (Baxter says he voted for Donald Trump in the presidential election.) But many Democrats could see Baxter as a serious challenge to O’Flynn and the Republican Party’s long control of a key county office. And there have been signs that O’Flynn may, too. He recently backed out of a city neighborhood meeting where the two were scheduled to appear. Baxter isn’t naïve. He relishes the idea of being the underdog in this race, something he says energizes him. But he knows he will still have a tough time convincing some local Dems that he stands with them. “I’m very comfortable with the decision,” he says. “I’m a conservative-leaning Democrat, and my response to people who question whether I’m really a Democrat or not, I tell them: come sit down over cup of coffee with me and let’s talk.” Baxter, of course, is not the first local candidate to switch political parties. Many Dems were annoyed, though hardly shocked, when Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley switched her registration to Republican. Baxter says he decided to change parties

because he became disillusioned with the Republican Party he had been with for many years. He says he’s not so different from liberals who say they lost their enthusiasm for the Democratic Party and didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton. Baxter says he voted for Trump in the 2016 presidential election because he thought Trump was a highly successful business man who would shake things up in Washington. But, he says, he’s disappointed with some of what Trump has done as president, especially some of his tweets involving police work and North Korea. “When he tweeted about roughing people up and telling officers not to worry about protecting someone’s head as you’re putting them in the car, I’m thinking: We’ve been working so freakin’ hard to build public trust, what’s he doing?” Baxter says. “I found that offensive.” And with a son in the military, he said, Trump’s handling of North Korea is troubling. Ultimately, Baxter says, he doesn’t think

political affiliations matter in carrying out the duties of the sheriff’s department.

“At the end of the day, I’m not making policy,” says Baxter. “I’m enforcing the law. My job is to keep everyone safe, not just some people.” The biggest issue in the sheriff ’s race, he says, is who can provide better leadership, and on that front, he says, incumbent O’Flynn has failed. O’Flynn sees things differently. His experience, he says, is central to his bid for re-election. And he argues that running a local police department doesn’t compare to running an organization the size of the county sheriff ’s department and a jail with as many as 1,000 inmates. Still, O’Flynn’s tenure has certainly included some controversies. One example: negotiations over his salary. In 2011, in a last-ditch move just before the County Legislature voted on the budget, Republicans approved an annual pay raise for O’Flynn that increased his salary to $136,700, from $123,030. A few years later, he sought another pay raise; this time for an additional $37,000. In a recent interview with City, O’Flynn dismissed concerns about his salary. He said he had gone without an annual pay raise for 14 years.


“It became a political football that both sides of the aisle were playing,” he said. “When it comes to my salary, I don’t have any control over it.” That’s partly true; the County Legislature approves the budget. But critics say O’Flynn should have made his case for the raise before the public instead of relying on political allies. Baxter says O’Flynn fought for his salary increases but didn’t put up much of a fight for salary increases for his deputies, who have been working without a contract since 2012. The union leaders representing jail deputies finally reached an agreement with the county’s negotiators after several attempts, but their members didn’t agree to it, and negotiations are underway again. Negotiations for road deputies didn’t go well, either. Arbitration resulted in a new contract earlier this year, and 41 deputies took early retirement. While O’Flynn says he doesn’t have a say in contract negotiations – because they are between the union leaders and the county – Baxter says at the very least, O’Flynn owed it to the public to explain how losing 41 deputies would impact public safety. “We lost a huge amount of experience and manpower when that happened,” Baxter says. Just saying it won’t have an impact on public safety isn’t realistic, Baxter says. Another Flynn administration controversy: a guard at the Monroe County Correctional Facility was found guilty of sexually abusing several inmates. The offenses, which included rape, occurred between 2010 and 2012. Some of the women later sued the county. O’Flynn says that the incident occurred because there were places in the facility that could not be monitored through video surveillance and that the problem has been corrected. But critics have questioned how that type of misconduct could have occurred for so long without department leaders knowing. Another concern for some critics is the sheriff department’s involvement with immigration. Though O’Flynn says the department has little to do with it, there was some concern about the sheriff’s decision to join the Secure Communities Initiative, an Immigration and Customs Enforcement program. When participating police and sheriff departments arrest someone, they send the person’s fingerprints to ICE to verify their immigration status. ICE can ask local law-enforcement agencies to detain the individual until it can be determined if they are wanted in connection to a crime. continues on page 8

children and families that they serve.” Brigit Hurley, a policy analyst with the Children’s Agenda, said her organization was thrilled with the announcement. CPS caseloads have increased over the past five or so years. And in recent years, the county has also cut funding for some valuable preventive services, she said. But the Children’s Agenda became very concerned about CPS vacancies and caseloads when the local reporting hotline was eliminated and the number of incoming reports spiked. In its past two budget analyses, it flagged the vacancies and caseloads as critical issues. “This is a strong response on the part of the county,” Hurley said. Legislature Democratic Minority Leader Cynthia Kaleh voiced her support for the plan, too. Democrats have echoed the Children’s Agenda’s concerns over CPS staffing and caseloads. Democratic County Legislator Justin Wilcox has been working on a proposal to cap CPS worker caseloads, and recently, Republican County Legislator and city mayoral candidate Tony Micciche signed on. Whether the reforms would have prevented Brook Stagles’ death is unanswerable. Her father, Michael Stagles, pleaded guilty to criminally negligent homicide last week. His girlfriend at the time, Erica Bell, has been convicted of second-degree murder and first-degree manslaughter. Bell beat Stagles, and both she and Michael Stagles prevented others from getting medical attention for the girl, according to media reports of the Bell trial and verdict and the Stagles plea. The CPS caseworker handling the Stagles investigation was assigned less than 20 cases, Crossdale said last week. Staff made three home visits, attempted two additional visits, and did two direct observations of Brook, she said. They talked to both biological parents and other family members. And Bell’s trial showed that she and Michael Stagles went to great lengths to keep Brook Stagles away from people who might have been able to help, and that includes CPS staff, Crossdale says. children and families that they serve.”

Sheriff continues from page 7

The New York Civil Liberties Union has been critical of the program, arguing that it promotes racial profiling and intimidates immigrants and discourages them from reporting crimes. The NYCLU describes the program as an ineffective dragnet that mostly snares non-criminals. But O’Flynn says that his department, like most law enforcement agencies, has had extensive anti-racism and cultural-bias training to prevent racial profiling, and he says the training is continuing. In a recent CITY interview, O’Flynn was also asked how his department interacts with transgender individuals, another sensitive social issue, since a person who is in transition may look and identify themselves differently than how they appear, for example, on a driver’s license. They may also use different pronouns. But O’Flynn said when his department interacts with a transgender person, they refer to the person’s gender in accordance with whatever gender their legal identification, such as a driver’s license, indicates. However, if an arrest is made, the transgender person is confined separately from other inmates for their own protection, O’Flynn said. Baxter has also charged that O’Flynn’s response to the opioid crisis is a sign of lack of leadership. Baxter says the sheriff’s department has been largely reactive, that it took months to get reliable data on opioid abuse. Even though the opioid crisis has made national headlines for more than a year, Baxter says it took too long to determine that Monroe County had 169 opioid-related deaths in 2016. He says the issue needs someone locally to spearhead awareness and better coordinate prevention programs. Baxter says he would hold frequent public briefings, and he has proposed creating preventive programs, such as one where residents could schedule someone to come to their home and pickup unused prescription drugs. And he proposed an interdisciplinary task force to root out dealer networks for opioids and heroin coming into the area. But O’Flynn strongly disagrees. He says the sheriff’s department has been working on anti-drug education in schools and community centers for years, and his department works with the courts to help get addicts into treatment programs. O’Flynn says that inmates with chemical dependency problems are offered Vivitrol, a drug that reduces the addict’s cravings for opioids. Critics argue that addiction is a disease that should be treated by health-care workers who understand it and not by law-enforcement or the justice system. They say the real issue is limited access to affordable treatment programs, something that neither O’Flynn nor Baxter can do much about. Staff writer Jeremy Moule contributed to this reporting.

Zack Mikida’s enthusiasm is contagious. On the day we sat down to talk, everyone who walked into Bitter Honey (127 Railroad Street), Mikida’s new venture with SCN Hospitality (The Revelry, Branca), whether it was an employee or a customer, was greeted with a high five or a hug. Bitter Honey has been a long time coming. The concept was dreamed up nearly five years ago, and to have it finally come to fruition means that Mikida is all smiles. The dream began with Mikida’s first trip to Mexico, where, he says, he was bowled

over by the people, the food, and the drink. “Being someone that has been working in food and beverage since I was 16, I’ve never seen such genuine and true hospitality,” he says. Over the past year, Mikida returned to Mexico six times, staying anywhere from 48 hours to more than three weeks. While there, he worked at a small cocktail bar, soaked up the local culture, and also helped in the fields to produce mezcal. It was during a trip to one of the oldest tequila distilleries in Mexico that the restaurant got the name “Bitter Honey.” When the agave plant is extracted and prepared for production, it is typically cut in

half and placed in an oven to begin to cook off, at which point it begins to secret an oil that the locals call the “bitter honey.” Tequila and mezcal are featured heavily in Bitter Honey’s bar program, and the restaurant will soon offer a passport program in which guests can sample 50 different types of tequila and 50 different types of mezcal. Each participant will receive a hand-crafted clay cup called a copita and a booklet where they can mark which varieties they have tried and enjoyed. The food program at Bitter Honey is helmed by executive chef Bennett Hallenbeck. The menu consists of tacos, enchiladas, taquitos, and more. All the corn tortillas are made in-house, and the staff is making close to a thousand of them per day on the weekends. The barbacoa tacos ($6 per taco) include braised lamb, salsa borracha (typically made with chiles, orange juice, tequila, and garlic), avocado, and mint. Plenty of vegetarian items are also available, from the guacamole ($11) and salsa flight ($12.50) on the appetizer menu to the quesadillas ($12) that are made with Oaxaca cheese and salsa. “I think the idea of true hospitality starts with the awareness of your guests and empathy in action,” says Mikida. “It’s as simple as that: ‘Hey, I see you; I hope you have a good day.” Bitter Honey is located at 127 Railroad Street, and is open Monday through Thursday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. It is open for lunch and dinner on Friday and brunch and dinner on Saturday. 270-4202. Free parking is available in the lot directly across the street from the restaurant. bitterhoneyroc.com

Exclusive craft cocktails will be available at the event, and a costume contest will take place with prizes and giveaways. The first 50 guests will receive a Bourbon Cream Gift Bag. OSB Ciderworks (5901 Big Tree Road, Lakeville) will host a Fall Fling & Cider Release Party on Saturday, October 21, from noon to 9 p.m. The cidery will debut its fall selection of ciders, including Hold the Crust Apple Pie, Peardon Me, and a new flavor to be announced. The event is family friendly and Corning artist Elijah Smith will set up a glass pumpkin patch. Cider and donuts will also be available. Genesee Brew House (25 Cataract Street) will host a Beer Pairing Dinner on Tuesday, October 24, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $45 per person and will include a four-course meal and beer pairing. On the menu will be pumpkin soup with fried pumpkin seeds, a homemade pretzel with smoked gouda beer cheese, stuffed pork tenderloin with apple-cranberry stuffing, and a homemade waffle cone with Reisky Spies ice cream for dessert.

AARON WINTERS [ PHOTOGRAPHY ] BY FRANK DE BLASE

Rochester photographer Aaron Winters shoots wildlife both in nature and on stage

The way photographer Aaron Winters captures wildlife is nothing short of magical. The way he captures musicians of any stripe, living the wild life is equally stunning. Whether shot at a little joint like the Bug Jar, in the expanse of Kodak Hall, or on the Serengeti, Winters’ work is unmistakable in its precision and honesty. A singer in mid-wail, a guitarist in mid-air, a giant anteater, or a herd of elephants: all have so much color, depth, and life when seen through the man’s lens. It’s a shared perspective. It is magnificent. Though he’s rather low-key, you’ve no doubt seen Winters around the scene, bouncing from show to show like a pinball. He’s everywhere. Far-flung places like Brazil add pictures to his portfolio and stamps in his passport. He had been on safari a couple of times to Tanzania with Gustafson Photo Safaris and figured he’d try something new. A few planes, a few trucks, and a few boats later, Winters found himself in Brazil in an area known as the Pantanal. “It’s huge,” Winters says. “Flat land, marshy rivers, and streams for grazing cattle.” And it was remote. “I really had no idea where I was, and Google had trouble finding me,” he says. And unlike the relatively peaceful music scene here, this area was inhabited by colorful birds of all types… and jaguars. He was on their turf. For the most part, Winters wasn’t scared. “Most of the trip, you’re on water,” he says. “Either in a boat or alongside the water. That’s where the animals are coming to. And the jaguars: you’re basically riding in an extended rowboat. You get relatively close to them. I guess they don’t like to swim unless they have to, so they leave you alone. They are big, strong animals, big as any of the lions I saw in Tanzania. I probably was in more danger than I know about a few times. But I’ve gotten into more trouble here, walking though poison ivy with rabid raccoons.” Now 67, Winters first got into photography working at a steel shop building darkrooms and as a building contractor. With the advent of the digital point-and-shoot camera, photography played a bigger role in his work and offered up potential vistas from rooftops. “I was on roofs a lot, doing estimates, and had some nice views,” he says. When he retired, a friend gave him a digital SLR. “And I was up and running. I was looking at some pictures on Facebook that bothered me – ‘We can do better than that’ – so I started shooting some bands I know.” He likens the thrill of photographing musicians and wild animals to that of shooting sporting clays. “I like to hit moving targets,” he says. “That, and capturing a moment that can be shared with others.” continues on page 12 rochestercitynewspaper.com CITY 11

The tools of Winters’ trade Aaron Winters certainly shoots with some high-tech gear. But before you run out and slap some money down – it isn’t cheap – remember: it’s the photographer’s eye that captures the image first. Here’s what Winter uses: Wildlife: Canon 7D mark ll with tamron 150-600 mm lens Music: Canon 1Dx with Canon 70-200 mm and 24-70 mm lens; Nikon D4s with 70-200mm lens and 16-35 mm lens


What first strikes the viewer about a Winters shot is that the subject – man or animal – is virtually caught in the moment unaware. Winter is the king of the candid shot. How does he do it? “I wish I knew,” he says. “With the animals, they’re just doing what they do.” But so are the musicians. Capturing them is a study in patience and serendipity. In the wild, Todd Gustafson gave Winters a tip when waiting for that perfect shot. “He told me, ‘If there’s no action in five or six minutes, move,’” he says. The same thing applies to performing musicians. “If a band isn’t on time, my clock starts ticking.”

Another similarity between the wild life and the live music shots seems to be Winters’ lack of photographic stunts, from the time of the shot all the way down to post-production. What he shoots is what it is. “The strongest similarity is that I’m shooting in natural light, whatever it is,” Winters says. “I’m adapting to the situation, as opposed to bringing my lighting in and making them conform to what I want. I’m just shooting what’s there. With the music, I want people to feel what I was feeling, to see what I saw. If I shoot in the Bug Jar and it’s dark, my pictures are going to be dark. It’s what people were seeing. And maybe the musicians will take

something away from this: ‘Hey, We’re kind of dark. Maybe we should light ourselves better.”’ Winters’ advice is free. So are his pictures. He doesn’t charge a dime. “Never,” he says. “They give me music. I couldn’t afford to do this if they charged me to come in. I make the photos available to them. They’re the same as you can get off of Facebook. Maybe they’re a little better, because I have a better sensor.” And though he’s proud of his output in both genres, he doesn’t plan a gallery showing anytime soon. “I’m retired,” he says. “And I’m really not interested in being in the business of shows

and selling your pictures. It becomes a part of the work I don’t want to do. Standing around a gallery, trying to hustle prints: it just isn’t my thing. I just want to be out there taking them. The part I love is shooting and being out there.” When pressed for a favorite subject or scenario, the wild animals win, especially owls. “It’s pretty close,” he says. “But I’d have to lean toward the wildlife. Owls are huge. They’re fairly illusive, first of all. I don’t know, I just feel comfortable with them, and they seem to be comfortable with me.” For more on Aaron Winters, click on aaronwintersphotography.com rochestercitynewspaper.com CITY 13

Chick Corea has been one of the top pianists in jazz. After emerging from Rochester with Chuck Mangione in the early 1970’s, Steve Gadd (known among drummers as Steve God) has become the most recorded drummer in jazz and pop history. Both are legends in their own right, but Corea and Gadd have been collaborating from time to time since the mid-1970’s. Four decades later they’ve decided to record an album and tour as a band.

Four decades ago, the Philadelphia jazz scene had one highly unusual player. Joel Levine would bring his axe to gigs and proceed to blow everyone away. His axe is a recorder, but Levine is not just any recorder player. He can not only charm the pants off any snake with his sinuous sound; he can play three recorders at once, the middle one providing a drone note. When he takes off on a solo, he ventures way out of the chordcomfort zone, rivaling top saxophonists. With his debut CD, “The Whistleblower,” he finally steps into the spotlight. Among his powerhouse band-mates are drummer Lenny White (who also produced), violinist Diane Monroe, guitarist Tom Guarna, and keyboardists Anthony Wonsey and Michael Wooten. All contribute great solos and engage in inventive interplay with Levine. Singers Evelyn Simpson-Curenton, Chevy Chevis, and Chris Williams are all wonderfully expressive. Tunes range from Stevie Wonder to George Frederick Handel and include four fine originals. But the best track is White’s “Big Broski,” a funk classic ripe for great solos and infectious bass riffs by Daniel Winshall.

Vijay Iyer Sextet “Far From Over” ECM vijay-iyer.com

Jazz thrives on the energy of the moment, but the more players there are in a band, the more organization it demands, leaving that vital spontaneity in jeopardy. Despite the complexity of the music on Vijay Iyer Sextet’s “Far From Over,” the in-the-moment, wild spirit comes through loud and clear. Iyer’s music ranges from funk (“Nope” and “Into Action”) through avantgarde (“End of the Tunnel” and “Threnody”) and elegiac (“For Amiri Baraka”) to … let’s just say Iyer paints with the whole palette. On piano and Fender Rhodes, Iyer also brilliantly covers a wide swath of territory stylistically. The horn players pulling off that precise punctuation with a freewheeling feeling are Graham Haynes on cornet and flugelhorn (and electronics); Steve Lehman, alto sax; and Mark Shim, tenor sax. All contribute superb solos, sometimes all at once. The rhythm section of Stephan Crump on bass and Tyshawn Sorey, drums, couldn’t be better. Iyer (who grew up in Fairport) has already won almost every major award, but this is his best album yet.

Heart strings Black Violin’s Wil Baptiste on hip-hop, classical music, and race Black Violin THURSDAY, OCTOBER 12 NAZARETH COLLEGE ARTS CENTER, CALLAHAN THEATER, 4245 EAST AVENUE 7:30 P.M. | $35-$50 | NAZ.EDU; BLACKVIOLIN.NET [ MUSIC PREVIEW ] BY DANIEL J. KUSHNER

It’s not hard to understand the appeal of the Florida duo Black Violin. Violist Wil Baptiste and violinist Kev Marcus have created a hip-hop, classical hybrid that you can feel immediately, with infectious hooks and indelible beats that resonate from your ear drums all the way to the bottoms of your feet. Listen to any Black Violin track for a minute or two, and the life-affirming effect is the same – whether it’s the group’s irrepressible take on Antonio Vivaldi’s violin concerto “Spring” from “The Four Seasons”; the heavy backbeat, sludgy synths, and sprightly strings on “Virtuoso,” or the groove-centric determinism of “A-Flat.” Rochester will get a chance to experience 16 CITY OCTOBER 11 - 17, 2017

Black Violin’s singular sound live for the first time, when the group comes to Nazareth College on Thursday, October 12, as part of its Classical Boom Tour. Baptiste and Sylvester have been playing together professionally for more than a decade – releasing memorable albums like “Classically Trained” and “Stereotypes” along the way – and they show no signs of slowing down. “I think the main thing that keeps me going and keeps me coming back is just the impact,” Baptise says. “We have an incredible amount of impact on not only kids but adults alike, and it’s amazing to see. When you’re doing something you love, and people are inspired in a way that you can’t even really explain, you know, it’s hard to walk away from that.” Not only is the music undeniably catchy, it galvanizes the listener in ways that transcend sound. Baptiste recalls meeting a fan who, after a performance at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, told him how the music of Black Violin helped to lift his spirit while he was in prison, and helped him survive the

experience. Baptiste has also witnessed how concertgoers have been able to look beyond things that might ordinary divide them or confine them to their own preconceived judgments about people, through the sheer fact of having a collective experience with others through music. But it seems to start with understanding the hidden compatibility of two seemingly incompatible genres. “Experimenting with different genres and just kinda throwing something against the wall and seeing what happens – that’s the beauty of it, you know?” Baptiste says. “And I think our music – because it’s hip-hop, because it’s classical music – which, you know, these two, if they were two people, they would never be in the same room. People would think, ‘Oh my god, it doesn’t make any sense. They’re together?’ You know what I’m sayin’? ‘They’re dating?’ It’s odd.” As much as the music of Black Violin promotes unity, Baptiste pulls no punches when he talks about the things that still divide us in society. Asked about the current sociopolitical climate

surrounding issues of racial inequality, police brutality, the Black Lives Matter movement, and presidential responses, the violist is frank. “To be black in America, man, you’re put in uncomfortable situations all the time,” Baptiste says. “I’m a musician and I travel the world, and I go to places that I’m uncomfortable all the time. You know what I’m sayin’? I go on the elevator, I’m uncomfortable, you know, so it’s just a thing that we go through. “And I think people of other races, until they can understand what it feels like to be uncomfortable – you know what I’m sayin’ – and have these uncomfortable conversations –’cause that’s where it needs to start.” “But at the end of the day,” the uncomfortable conversations have to be had, he says. “You know what I’m sayin’? And understand that these things, these concerns: they’re not made up. This shit is real.” Baptiste doesn’t stop there: “You probably don’t hate me, but I promise you, if I walk near you, you have this thing about a person that looks like me. You’re not gonna think I play the violin. You’re gonna think, oh, I’m this or I’m that.” Sometimes the discomfort extends to some of the orchestras with which Black Violin collaborates. “It’s very difficult, because they’re so stuck in their ways, you know what I’m sayin’?” Baptiste says. “You can tell they don’t necessarily like what they’re hearin.’ They just want to be able to play the music. They don’t necessarily want to hear the beats or feel it.” Baptiste has also noticed a disconnect between some orchestras and the economically disadvantaged communities with whom they seek to connect. “Unless the attitude changes, people can sense when people are fake and not real,” Baptiste says. “You can’t just bring an orchestra in the ‘hood and play for ‘em and expect kids to automatically be like, ‘Oh, cool, I’ma go listen to some Mozart now.’ That shit don’t work.” A tone of lament is palpable in Baptiste’s voice: “I love classical music, man. And I think it’s one of those genres that really needs help, but they don’t want to ask.”

FOLK | LUCY KAPLANSKY

PHOTO PROVIDED

When I caught Lucy Kaplansky’s concert at Café Veritas a few years ago, she had great chemistry with the crowd. Kaplansky mixed deeply personal originals with covers from artists like Townes Van Zandt, and ultimately owned the night with songs like Eliza Gilkyson’s piano tune “Sanctuary.” Kaplansky is a person of many talents and is highly respected in folk circles: she holds a doctorate in psychology, did backing vocals on Bryan Ferry’s “Frantic” album, and has achieved her own musical success with the award-winning album “Ten Year Night,” released in 1999. Buffalo troubadour Davey O. opens the show. Lucy Kaplansky performs Saturday, October 14, at Café Veritas at First Unitarian Church, 220 South Winton Road. 7:30 p.m. $10-$18. cafeveritas.org; lucykaplansky.com. — BY ROMAN DIVEZUR

Trumpeter Michael Sarian is a steady study in dichotomy. With a wordless elegance, the New York City-based musician is flexibly firm, loosely tight, and brightly dark. The innovations within his compositions are deceptively dramatic with varying degrees of a melodic sensibility suitable for all: the casual observer right down to the aficionado and the maniac. Michael Sarian & The Chabones plays with Leland Sundries and Calligraphy on Wednesday, October 11, at the Bug Jar 219 Monroe Avenue. 8:30 p.m. $7-$9. bugjar. com; michaelsarian.com. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

Folami Williams, Bryce Michael Wood, Shannon Tyo, and Jake Lee Smith in “Smart People” at Geva Theatre Center. PHOTO BY JULIA PACHECO-COLE

Conversation starter “Smart People” REVIEWED SUNDAY, OCTOBER 8 CONTINUES THROUGH SUNDAY, OCTOBER 22 GEVA THEATRE CENTER, 75 WOODBURY BOULEVARD $35 | 232-4382; GEVATHEATRE.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY LEAH STACY

There are a few topics people don’t bring up in casual conversation, as a rule — politics, sexual orientation, money, and race, to name a few. For heaven’s sake, just stick to asking about the weather, weekend plans, and the welfare of children or pets. Those topics, for most, are easy and non-offensive. But playwright Lydia R. Diamond isn’t here to play it safe. The award-winning author has penned several scripts about uncomfortable topics, and one of her latest works, “Smart People,” runs at Geva Theatre’s Fielding Stage through October 22. The play is a co-production with Ithaca’s Kitchen Theatre Company (the show played there September 3 through 24). 20 CITY OCTOBER 11 - 17, 2017

There are only four roles in the show: a black female actor, a black male doctor, an Asian female psychiatrist, and a white male professor. Race and gender are important to mention in the character descriptions, because both are crucial to the plot. And “Smart People” has a “six degrees of separation, Kevin Bacon game” sort of plot, one that would feel contrived were it not for the deep issues that unfold throughout the storyline. It’s 2008, and Barack Obama is running for president. Each of the four “Smart People” call Boston home, and they are all struggling with the issue of race in some way. For Harvard professor Brian White (Jake Lee Smith), a research project goes awry; for struggling actor Valeria Johnston (Folami Williams), color blind casting is a new concept; young surgeon Jackson Moore (Bryce Michael Wood) resists the system in his residency; and psychiatrist Ginny Yang (Shannon Tyo) tries to help other young Asian American women find a voice. “Smart People,” while funny at times, is not a light show. It helps that the cast is impressively in tune with one another.

Dialogue flows naturally and is impeccably timed, particularly for Wood and Tyo. The four characters could be neighbors, friends, and family members to anyone in the audience, and director Summer L. Williams brings both knowledge of Boston culture (where she is co-founder and associate artistic director of Company One Theatre) and her award-winning intuition as a director to the production. The cast, as an ensemble, presents one of Geva’s most impactful dramatic showings in recent years. The subject matter is, by nature, uncomfortable, but this cast is comfortable with the presentation. Even intimate scenes are handled with precision, and the fourth wall — that slender divider between audience engagement and observation — is by turns firmly in place and broken. Wood portrays an arrogant, swaggering charmer who’s worked hard to earn his place in the world. He’s an infectious presence onstage, injecting energy into his fellow players and into the audience as well. (For a Sunday matinee, this show had a fair amount of lively laughter.) Tyo is a force onstage as well, ricocheting between perfectly held together shrink

and emotionally distraught shopaholic. Smith delivers a deft portrait of a professor everyone has met, stuck in his own head, which whirls with research; while Williams is an actor playing an actor, nailing the shudder-inducing “actor intonation” so prevalent in young stage performers. Scenic and lighting designer Tyler M. Perry has worked closely with projection and sound designer Rasean Davonte Johnson to create a minimalist set that becomes a hospital, a clinic, an office, a bedroom, a dining room, a lecture hall, and more. Projections are used intentionally, and accompanied by sound to enhance the metaphors they contain. “Smart People” is an apropos play in light of the near-decade since Obama’s election, especially. There is now a more desperate need than ever for open discussion and immediate action, and this show drives that home. The production follows the current season opener “In the Heights” and last season’s outstanding “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” to continue an important conversation at Geva and the community as a whole: one of diversity, inclusion, and acceptance.

COMEDY | MIKE EPPS Mike Epps is like that one friend who irks you because he can do so many things well. The stand-up comedian is a writer, producer, does a little bit of hip-hop — his first comedy album, “Funny Bidness: Da Album,” featured Snoop Dogg, Kid Rock, and Slim Thug — and he has enough acting credits to fatigue you while scrolling through IMDB. Epps is a familiar face from the “Friday” and “The Hangover” franchises, and he starred in “Meet The Blacks” as well as in the TV series “Uncle Buck.” But before his acting career, Epps made a name for himself with his stand-up comedy. You can find his 2015 hour special, “Don’t Take It Personal,” on Netflix. Opening the Rochester show is Atlanta’s Bruce Bruce. Mike Epps will perform Saturday, October 14, at the Auditorium Theatre (885 East Main Street). 8 p.m. $55-$78. 222-5000; rbtl.org; mikeepps.com. — BY SCOTT PUKOS Spotlight Series and the revived Rochester Biennial. 585-256-3312. galleryr.rit. edu.

The public peruses the wares offered at the 2016 Flower City Pottery Invitational. This year’s event will take place Thursday through Sunday, October 12 to 15. PHOTO PROVIDED

Through the fire Flower City Pottery Invitational THURSDAY, OCTOBER 12, THROUGH SUNDAY, OCTOBER 15 FLOWER CITY ARTS CENTER, 713 MONROE AVENUE FEES FOR WORKSHOPS AND OPENING RECEPTION; FREE ADMISSION SATURDAY AND SUNDAY VARIOUS TIMES | 271-5183; ROCHESTERARTS.ORG [ PREVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

A chunk of the joy to collecting art is getting to know the artist behind the 26 CITY OCTOBER 11 - 17, 2017

object, whenever possible. This extends beyond picking a painter’s brain for insight into their work; the very vessels you serve food from can be part of your collection. Handmade bowls and mugs have stories, and are as much a way to express your individual taste as the things you put on your walls. This weekend marks the third annual Flower City Pottery Invitational, which gives an opportunity to collect functional (and some decorative) ceramic work from 21 regional and national artists. But you can also converse or take a workshop with the makers, and free lectures and demos are held throughout the weekend. A preview sale and reception, which is a

ticketed event, will take place Friday, October 13, 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. “There is a direct personal connection as you use this artwork, between your life and their story,” says Richard Aerni, FCPI co-founder and a ceramic artist. “This is something that’s come out of somebody’s mind through their fingertips, and through the fire. It’s imbuing your life and surroundings with meaning.” Aerni says that the invitational is modeled after the “grandmother of these sales,” The Old Church Pottery Show and Sale, held in Demarest, New Jersey, which was founded in the early 1970’s by Mikhail Zakin and Karen Karnes. Aerni was first invited in 1986, and this year will mark his ninth time participating. Aerni and Alfred University professor Matt Metz, a few years ago, began kicking around the idea to host an invitational in Rochester. They both had contacts at The Genesee Center for the Arts and Education — as Flower City was called at the time — where Peter Pincus was the pottery studio manager. They came up with a model that would benefit both the invited potters and the center’s programming. Metz, Aerni, and Pincus the FCPI curators each year, and they also participate in the show and sale. There’s a large emphasis on including potters who don’t normally show their work in Rochester, giving locals a chance to see and collect something new. “Every year we want to have someone who is an emeritus, someone who has been in the field forever, and would be the shining star,” Aerni says. This year that person is Andrea Gill, a longtime professor at Alfred who taught at Kent State before that. Now retired, Gill maintains a studio practice, creating vibrantly-glazed vessels that trip back and forth between two and three dimensions. The organizers also emphasize new talent; Aerni estimates that about a third of the invitees are in their late 20’s or early 30’s. The curators themselves embody the gamut of experience, Aerni says. “Matt is mid-career, I’m sort of further in than any of them, and Peter is just like the rocket ship that’s taking off now.” Various styles and techniques are represented in the show and sale. Trumansburg-based artist Julie Crosby’s work is “strong but quiet,” Aerni says. She works in wood-fired clay, “her forms are bold and straightforward,

there’s no frippery.” Similarly, Matt Kelleher, of Alfred, makes soda-fired pots that “are soft and lustrous. They don’t get in your face.” Alfred studio artist Shoko Teruyama’s work is more painterly, with dreamy, illustrative surfaces. Her work was a hit last year, and she nearly sold out of it. Jenny Mendes, based in Ohio, creates both functional and decorative ceramics with human or animal features and narrative aspects. Flower City will host workshops on Thursday, October 12, and Friday, October 13, and eight different artist demos will be held at regular intervals on Saturday and Sunday, with various potters sharing techniques and experiences. In the last two years, organizers found that a large number of people came to the center and stayed all day, Aerni says. “They’d peruse, they’d shop, and then the lecture would start, and it would be packed. People were just enthralled.” After, attendees would visit the artist at their booth, and maybe do another run through the show, he says. “And people returned each day.” The organizers have tried to make it easy for clay enthusiasts to talk with makers. Most artists are reluctant businesspeople, Aerni says. At this sale, they’re not there with their cash box trying to sell you something — all sales are handled through the center, enabling the artists to focus entirely on conversing with visitors about their work. “It’s good all the way around,” he says. People in the community host the potters each year, and there’s an aspect of the gathering serving as a reunion for what is a tight-knit national pottery community. “Some of these folks I’ve known for 30, 40 years, and our paths cross at events like this, and that’s about it.” There are people who travel to attend, and collectors who don’t come but call in to purchase. Although the organizers allow out-of-towners to make remote purchases, priority is given to local collectors who get first dibs. Remote purchases are held until a threehour time window on the last day of the show, when personal shoppers are available for 15 minute appointments.

Visions for the future “Blade Runner 2049”

(R), DIRECTED BY DENIS VILLENEUVE NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW

It’s difficult to overstate the influence of a film like “Blade Runner,” Ridley Scott’s classic 1982 science fiction neo-noir. Though it received mixed reviews upon its initial release, the film has risen in esteem over the passing decades, as its impact truly began to be recognized. We have it to thank for every other pop culture vision of a gloomy, dystopian future, and its visual aesthetic is one of the rare examples that deserves to be called “visionary.” It redefined a genre while giving rise to a new one

(tech-noir), and solidified Scott’s place as an icon of science-fiction filmmaking. There’s long been rumblings of a possible sequel, and finally after 35 years, “Arrival” director Denis Villeneuve has taken a crack at it. Like its predecessor, the somber and stylish “Blade Runner 2049” emphasizes mood and atmosphere over story, and it even manages to pack some legitimate emotion into its narrative. The result is a fascinating melding of blockbuster filmmaking with an arthouse sensibility. In Los Angeles of 2049, Agent K (an excellent Ryan Gosling) is a blade runner, a police detective trained to identify, hunt down, and “retire” renegade replicants (bioengineered androids virtually indistinguishable from human beings). There’s never a question that K is himself a replicant, as the humans he encounters never hesitate to remind him, hurling the epithet “skin job” at him and managing to remind him at every opportunity that they believe he lacks a soul. K’s existence is a lonely one, and his sole companion is a holographic girlfriend, Joi (Ana de Armas) whom he dotes on. In the process of tracking down

his latest target, a peaceful protein farmer (Dave Bautista, wonderful in a small role), K makes a discovery that has the potential to break down society’s already hazy distinction between man and machine. Under orders from his superior (Robin Wright), K pursues the case — which is connected in some way to the fate of Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) — but the investigation soon leads him into an existential crisis, questioning the nature of his own identity. Along the way, K crosses paths with the megalomaniacal Niander Wallace (Jared Leto, in his first performance in a long while that didn’t make me want to tear my own eyeballs out), whose Wallace Corporation has succeeded where the original film’s Tyrell Corporation failed, and created a line of replicants who obey orders without ever asking questions. Eager to protect his investment, he sends his replicant servant and enforcer Luv (a terrifying Sylvia Hoeks) after K. “Blade Runner 2049” picks up the themes and ideas from the original — what makes us human, where does our identity come from, the nature of memory and consciousness — while messing intriguingly with the established mythology. Its vision of L.A. is still a city of towering skyscrapers and neon lights on rain-slicked streets. But whereas the previous film showed us a world teeming with people, it now seems on the verge of death, as more and more of the population abandon the city in favor of living “off-world.”

American horror story [ INTERVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW

The film is quiet and chilly; moments of humor are few and far between. It maintains the original’s deliberate pacing, though its narrative is far more packed with incident, catering to the audience’s more modern sensibilities. But Villeneuve brings a sense of stillness that we don’t often expect in our modern blockbusters. It’s also jaw-droppingly beautiful to look at thanks to the lensing of legendary cinematographer Roger Deakins (doing work here that’s deserving of getting him the Oscar that continues to elude him after fourteen nominations). The film’s tactile effects and incredible production design, from Dennis Gassner, does a marvelous job of making the setting feel like the same world seen in the original film, 30 years down the line. Benjamin Wallfisch and Hans Zimmer’s foreboding score nicely fuses new themes with the familiar synthy sound of Vangelis’ work in the original. What’s frustrating about “Blade Runner 2049” is that for all the ways it manages to get the most difficult aspects of following up a beloved property right, it stumbles doing what should be the simplest of things in rounding out its world. Its roles for women are a bit of a mixed bag. As intriguing as the female characters are individually (largely because each of the actresses manage to bring out more in them than is explicitly on the page), none of them are given an arc that doesn’t center on the men in their lives. It’s also more than a little troubling that I can count the number of people of color who apparently exist in this world on one hand. As others have pointed out, it’s reflective of mainstream science fiction’s tendency to use white, straight male characters as standins for persecuted people while sidelining the actual groups society most often tends to persecute. “Blade Runner 2049” is visually dazzling, thoughtful, and impeccably performed, but when crafting a vision of humanity’s future, how hard is it to give its world a population that actually, you know, resembles humanity?

Not every performer manages to launch their movie career with appearances in two masterpieces, but that’s how things worked out for P.J. Soles. With a lengthy film and television career spanning a variety of genres, Soles is perhaps best known for her roles in two seminal horror films of the 1970’s: Brian De Palma’s “Carrie,” where she played the title character’s red-capped bully, Norma; and John Carpenter’s “Halloween,” as Jamie Lee Curtis’s totally ill-fated friend, Lynda. Those roles alone would be enough to cement her status as a horror icon (a title she admits she’s hesitant to embrace), but when you factor in performances in “Rock ‘n’ Roll High School,” “Stripes,” “Private Benjamin,” and Rob Zombie’s “The Devil’s Rejects,” Soles has a truly impressive filmography to her name. P.J. Soles will be in Rochester on Saturday, October 14, for a screening of the classic “Halloween” at The Little Theatre. Doors open at 6 p.m. for a meet and greet, and the film starts at 7 p.m. Admission is $15, which includes a poster signed by the actor. CITY spoke with Soles about her career, her place in the horror community, and getting her big break with one careerdefining audition. An edited version of that conversation follows. For a longer version of this interview, go online to rochestercitynewspaper.com.

CITY: At what point did you become interested in acting and head toward Hollywood? P.J. Soles: It’s kind of odd, but between

transferring from Briarcliffe College to Georgetown, I spent that summer in New York City and I just happened to walk by the Actors Studio. I noticed a sign on the door to audit classes in exchange for running spotlight on weekend productions. I ended up getting that and audited classes. And I just was kind of tickled and thrilled with the whole idea of acting. But it was something I did for fun, not ever to be considered serious. But they sent me out for auditions, and I said, “Well, I don’t know, I’m just here for the summer. But I could use some extra money.” And I shot like 10 commercials. It was ridiculous. I made so much money that summer that I really didn’t want to go back to college. I also modeled, and I worked on a soap opera, “Love is a Many Splendored Thing.” Everybody kept telling me you have to move to Los Angeles because you should be in film, you know. So after five years in Manhattan, I moved to L.A., and I was here for two weeks in 1975 before I went to the big casting call, the famous casting call with George Lucas and Brian De Palma. George was casting for “Star Wars,” and Brian for “Carrie.” Nobody knew really either one of them at that point. It wasn’t like, “Oh, my God!” It was just two directors behind a desk. I was chosen by Brian to be in “Carrie,” and then that movie started the ball rolling. How much influence did you have on creating Lynda as a character? Or was that pretty much set in the script?

P.J. Soles in “Halloween.” PHOTO COURTESY COMPASS INTERNATIONAL

Well obviously you have a script and you’re given lines, but then you have to come up with the visual. In all my movies I’ve always brought my own wardrobe, and that was very important for me. I would separate the scenes, and my best outfit I would put in the scenes where I thought I would have the most lines and the most screentime. And then the “totally” in “Halloween”: I told John, “There’s a bunch of ‘totallys’ in here, but I think I’m gonna push it so every time Lynda talks I’m going to say ‘totally’ if I can. And if it gets too obnoxious or you think it’s too much, let me know.” And he never did.

When you were on set making “Carrie” and “Halloween,” did you have any inkling of what those films would become, or that we’d still be talking about them four decades later?

When I first saw “Carrie,” it was for a cast and crew screening. Before that — very unusual — Brian De Palma let us all go to dailies after work every day, which was fun. So we had an idea of what the film was like, and we were all very much impressed with ourselves and each other, like “Oh my god, this is so cute.” But the movie as a whole when I first saw it blew me away. I had watched them film the scene with Sissy and her hand coming out of the ground, and it wasn’t scary when you watch it being filmed. But obviously with the music, the setup with Amy and the flowers, and then that shock, it was amazing. And the same with “Halloween.” I hadn’t known about John Carpenter’s musical ability. But when I first saw the cast and crew screening and heard the music, I thought it was amazing. I mean, to me, it seemed it took a longer time for “Halloween” to catch on. I don’t think it got bad reviews, but it sort of got overlooked in the beginning. It took a while to gain steam. I think audiences were the ones that brought back the reviewers to take a look at it again and realize that this was something special. How many times a day do people ask you to say “totally”?

Every other person. I sign “totally” on my “Halloween” pictures, and when I start to write it they get so excited. They go, “Oh, I was hoping you would do that. I didn’t want to ask you, but thank you for doing that!” And I go, “What else would I write? Of course I’m going to write ‘totally!’” Have you heard from the producers of the new “Halloween” movie that’s going into production?

I don’t think I’m going to be in it, but I planted seeds. Hopefully those pumpkin seeds will grow into a giant pumpkin and they’ll have me do a cameo. That I would say yes to, even for $100. I’m putting that out there.

Handsome in Highland

59 Oakland Street

There is a lot to love about the turn-ofthe-century home at 59 Oakland Street in the Highland Park neighborhood. With practical mechanical updates, lovingly restored details, lots of living space, a lovely backyard, and a location in one of the most in-demand neighborhoods in the city, this property ticks most of boxes that any urban dweller could possibly be looking for. To start, Oakland St. is a quiet residential street, where you’ll find an active and engaged citizenry that celebrates the community, walkability, and architecture of this historic urban neighborhood. Although a peaceful street, Oakland is also just a block off of South Avenue, where you can easily walk to restaurants, groceries, and local shops. Head a few blocks south and you’ll be in another world at the Frederick Law Olmsted-designed Highland Park.

The house itself sits on a cozy urban lot with off-street parking for two cars, handsome front landscaping, a full width front porch, a side porch, and a fully fenced backyard with a patio that provides a lovely, private escape. Inside the house, the front door opens to a spacious living room and dining room that provide the feel of an open floorplan. Off these rooms is a brand new bath/laundry room combo with tile floors, subway tiled walls, and a clawfoot tub. Either a first floor bath or laundry room would be a rare find in an older home; to have both is a major win.

kitchen, which still retains its wonderful pantry, is amazingly large for a home of this era. While it hasn’t been fully updated, it remains functional and leaves future homeowners the option to customize the space to their tastes. One door leads out to the side porch where you can easily access the garbage and recycling. Another leads down to the basement and out to the fantastic backyard. Upstairs, you’ll find a large master bedroom, two modest-sized bedrooms, and a spacious updated bathroom with a large tiled shower with glass doors. The unfinished attic is large and offers plenty of potential for future upgrades. Throughout the home, original wood doors, moldings, and hardwood floors give the spaces a warm, charming feel and make you feel instantly at-home. Recent updates include a new roof with a Cool Vent subroofing system, rewired electric, insulation, high efficiency combination condensing boiler and hot water heater, and in-floor radiant heating in the first floor bath and kitchen. 59 Oakland Street offers 1,925 square feet of living space and is listed at $179,900.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY THE EDITORS AT ANDREWS MCMEEL SYNDICATION

Animals on the Lam

Auburn, Massachusetts, police received a number of calls over the weekend of Sept. 15-17 about a wayward goat, but it wasn’t until the wee hours of Monday, Sept. 18, that No. 448 was finally corralled at the La Quinta Inn in Auburn, reported CBS Boston. The “mischievous runaway farm animal” was seen on surveillance video entering the lobby of the hotel and wandering the halls, “presumably to rest a bit,” said police. Peter Blash, No. 448’s owner, said the goat jumped a 5-foot-high fence and “took off like a criminal.” However, Blash said, “I had one that made it all the way to Sturbridge.” Just north of Benton, Kansas, a rancher posted signs promising a reward to anyone who could help him find his missing longhorn cow, Mercedes. The Wichita Eagle reported the 3-year-old black-and-white bovine went missing on Sept. 11 during Cross Trails, a weekly cowboy church service at Greg Johnson’s Prairie Rose Ranch. Friends, neighbors and family have searched high and low for Mercedes, recognizable by her 5-foot-wide horns, but the only sighting of her has been near the El Dorado, Kansas, Walmart, about 10 miles away. Johnson says this isn’t the first time she’s run off: “She is more of a loner.”

Questionable Judgment

Coolidge, Arizona, resident Victor Pratt boasts that he’s played with snakes his whole life. So when a rattlesnake slithered by during a family party at a nearby lake on Sept. 7, Pratt grabbed the viper and showed the kids “how to catch it and I was playing with it like little kids do. I wasn’t thinking. I was showing off,” he admitted to FOX 10 News. The rattler apparently didn’t want to play along and bit Pratt on his face and neck. Pratt’s sons quickly drove him to a nearby emergency room, and he was later airlifted

to Banner-University Medical Center Phoenix, where Dr. Steven Curry treated him. “There is a 100 percent chance he would have died if he’d not made it to the hospital within minutes,” Curry noted. Pratt remained unconscious for several days. He told reporters he had learned his lesson and would not play with rattlesnakes again.

Oops!

A family in Coventry, England, are “quite mortified” after calling the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in September to rescue a lizard peeking from underneath a bed in their home. But when officer Vic Hurr arrived at the home, she discovered the “lizard” was not a “lizard at all, it was a pink stripy sock.” The dirty imposter sock, about 7 inches long and 2 inches wide, wasn’t moving, Hurr noted. “I think the family eventually saw the funny side,” an RSPCA spokeswoman told the Independent. “The sock had obviously been there quite a while. It was a typical teenager’s bedroom, I suppose.” The Caving Club at Indiana University explored Sullivan Cave in southern Indiana on Sept. 17, but when they headed back to campus, they forgot one thing: a 19-year-old freshman physics major who had become separated from the group and was trapped behind a locked gate. When the club president realized two days later that a caver had been left behind, members rushed back to save him. “You could tell they were pretty shaken up,” the caver told the Indiana Daily Student. “They did near kill me.” The student reported he licked moisture off the cave walls during the ordeal and wrote goodbye letters to his family on his iPhone until the battery died. (BONUS: The rescued caver’s name is Lukas Cavar.)

[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 35 ]

[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Overreacting will cost you when it comes to love and romance. You are best not to make assumptions. Offer understanding and you’ll get a far better response from someone you want in your life. A positive change of attitude will improve your love life. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Have patience, but be ready to make a commitment when the time is right. Knowing what you want and being willing to compromise will help you end up with someone who is as practical and aware as you are of how to build a forever relationship.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): It’s going to take more than good looks and chemistry to make your heart keep beating with anticipation. Intellectual sparring will be testimony to how suited you are and whether it’s enough to ward off the usual boredom that sets in when the physical magic begins to diminish. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your feelings will be difficult to contain. If you love someone, give him or her the space required to figure out if the feelings are mutual. If you are fun to be with, it will be much easier to entice the object of your desire into your life permanently.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Let romance unfold naturally. Enjoy the moment and what life has to offer. Your passionate and playful attitude will attract plenty of options when it comes to picking the best person to share your adventures with. The partner who keeps up will be the one who wins your heart. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Tally up the pros and cons of matrimony and consider what you have to do to make it worthwhile. Equality is a necessity if you plan to join forces and create a strong and stable future. Physical romance won’t be hard to find, but a forever relationship is not so easy.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Secrets will be revealed if you share your personal thoughts with someone you think you can trust. When it comes to feelings regarding someone else, you are best not to be obvious or send the wrong message. Avoid anyone who is still involved with someone else. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Set boundaries when it comes to love. Before you let someone into your private thoughts, plans or personal information, you are best to wait until you are certain you have built up enough trust to feel comfortable doing so. Premature intimacy will put you in an awkward position.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll face a conflict if you make a romantic promise and don’t deliver. Getting involved with someone who bases your love on commitment will stifle your free-spirited personality. Make it clear that you need freedom to come and go as you please in order to offer loyalty and trust. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Ready, set -- make your move. Romance is highlighted and a commitment can be made. Don’t feel you have to be impulsive, but when you do make up your mind, be clear and put your plans in motion. A prenuptial that goes both ways will clear up any uncertainty.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You can talk your way into the heart of anyone you find interesting, informative and inventive. Looking for a suitable partner takes time, effort and plenty of research. Keep your eyes open for someone who is into trying new things and willing to experiment before making a commitment. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll be drawn to someone from your past or someone who reminds you of a love lost. Think twice before you make the same mistake you have in the past. Let love come to you, and don’t be too eager to become whatever your pursuer wants you to be.
