Here’s a way to combat poverty and racism

The writer of the letter “The Silence of Our White Leadership” describes her frustrations at the limited impact of her efforts in effectively addressing the poverty and racism that persist in our community (and by extension our nation and our world). She reports a lifetime of efforts to alleviate such problems on both individual and small group bases and notes the feeling of “what more can I do?” One suggestion would be to consider the activities of the Rochester Alliance of Communities Transforming Society (Roc/ACTS https://sites. google.com/site/rochesteracts/). This local affiliate of the Chicago-based Gamaliel Organization is an alliance of 24 faith-based organizations of mixed denominations who believe that, while charity and advocacy are fitting responses to immediate needs, they are not the way in which these problems will be solved. That will require the fundamental transformation of the structures and systems that support and sustain poverty, racism, sexism, etc. in our society. Roc/ACTS believes this can best be achieved by developing power through shared values and by organizing the people directly impacted (and, of course, of money). In the four years Roc/ACTS has been in our community, we have begun this work with a grassroots listening campaign that asked people to identify the most pressing problems facing the community at large. Their responses led to the establishment of three task forces (education, poverty and Jobs, and Criminal Justice) charged with formulating issues and working to bring about structural changes. Working with other interest groups and the people affected by the problems, we’ve been instrumental to date in: • Increasing county funding for 2 CITY

childcare (so that parents could go to work assured of the well-being of their children), and • Raising the age for incarceration in New York State (so that 16- and 17-year-olds don’t end up on a path to lifelong crime from being imprisoned with adults). We are currently working on supporting community efforts to significantly revise the defective accountability mechanisms for complaints of police misconduct and in raising the wages of those (mostly women of color) who make up the bulk of our homebased health-care workers. Much work remains to be done. We need all the help we can get, so our task forces are open to anyone in the community (member of an affiliate or not) who wants to work with us. On November 2 at Antioch Missionary Baptist Church (304 Joseph Avenue), we will be holding our annual Public Action event, at which we will be presenting our current issues to community leaders and asking for their commitment to work with us on exposing and eliminating the causes of economic and racial injustice here in our community. All are invited to participate. ROBERT INSULL

Broadcast news and gun violence

On Urban Journal’s “Las Vegas, Guns, and the Evil of Inaction“: Mary

Anna Towler asks: “How can this keep happening in this country?” Partly because these events have turned into a spiraling feedback loop among the perpetrators, the broadcast press, and every politician enamored by the broadcast press. Viewers like myself complete the full cast of characters. The usually sober CBS News ran footage of concertgoers scrambling for cover for over 12 hours. In the beginning, the stars were the broadcasters. After a while, the shooter and his mate became supporting actors, because we didn’t know very much about them. But we certainly know a lot about those beautifully dressed, beautifully tressed personalities who fill our huge, omnipresent TV screens from every nook and

cranny day and night. “After every tragedy,” Towler writes, “the media publish profiles of the victims and we weep.” I don’t think a lot of people cry for the dead, except for their own families, or for the living who must bury the dead or live with their own injuries. Before we know the names or the stories of the dead and injured, the famous broadcasters start telling us about the heroes. The survivors. The saviors. An inexcusable tragedy turns into an exciting drama filled with celebratory moments. The shock and horror and revulsion are blunted. Movie scripts and TV options are already forming in the minds of yet another set of media professionals. Then the politicians step in. Depending on their behavior they become members of the lead cast, or they become the new lead actors – heroes, anti-heroes, or villains – as one politician after another makes a public statement about the situation, dressed up for cameras that always run. Then come the political analysts and daytime TV personalities who comment on what the politicians are saying, completing the feedback loop on the same set of regular news shows. After watching Megyn Kelly struggle to pretend that she cared more about this horrible incident than about her chance to talk about it in front of a camera in a pair of skin-tight black yoga pants, I made a decision to stop watching all forms of televised news media. I can still read the paper, but for me broadcast news has become a part of a problem that is killing far too many Americans every single day. AMYLOUISE DONNELLY

CPS staffing

On County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo’s decision to increase Child Protective Services staffing: Perhaps

Ms. DiNolfo, or better yet her predecessor, Maggie Brooks, can explain why Child Protective Services was allowed to be insufficiently staffed for so long? It would be interesting and informative to know if the reason was that, A) additional staffing requests were never made, or B) staffing requests were made and either denied or only partially approved.

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER

A theater for Parcel 5? Some pros and cons If you’ve driven downtown during the past month or so, you know that a lot’s going on. We can gripe about the road construction, but there’s a certain satisfaction to the bumps and dust and slow traffic: stuff is happening downtown. Which brings up the obvious question: What’s happening with Parcel 5? My assumption is that Arnie Rothschild and RBTL, and their partner in the Parcel 5 proposal, Morgan Communities, are close to wrapping up their final designs, cost estimates, and revenue projections. If Mayor Lovely Warren and her staff are satisfied with that information, Warren will ask City Council to sell the land to RBTL and Morgan. And then City Council will vote on her request. Between now and then, those of us who care about downtown, the city, and the arts will be letting the mayor and City Council know what we want on Parcel 5. At the moment, I’m conflicted. There are a number of reasons to be concerned about the RBTL-Morgan proposal. Two of them: • Where’s the money for the theater? Warren turned down developer Andy Gallina’s proposal for a mixed-used building on Parcel 5, apparently because she didn’t feel the funding was solid enough. And yet RBTL’s funding consisted of a pledge for $25 million from Paychex founder Tom Golisano and some ideas of how to raise the rest. If Warren is going to ask City Council to approve the theater, seems like RBTL’s financial plan will need to be very, very solid. • The theater’s impact on other local arts organizations. RBTL brings in a lot of touring Broadway shows. Several local theaters also stage musicals. Geva’s recent production of “In the Heights,” for example, was particularly successful. Geva and others worry that a fancy new theater and the shows that RBTL would stage in it could compete with them for audiences, membership, and other support – this at a time when all arts groups are facing financial pressure. It’s not a given that RBTL would hurt other arts groups. Geva’s “In the Heights” did extremely well despite the fact that RBTL has staged that show in the past. Maybe a new theater for RBTL would increase public interest in live theater of all kinds. The problem is, we haven’t assessed the potential impact, and some arts organizations are very worried. The RBTL proposal has created a lot of animosity, and that’s not good for RBTL or for downtown Development. That said, the RBTL proposal has some definite plusses. At a recent briefing for

A strong argument for the theater: If you increase the number of people walking around downtown, you increase people’s comfort level.” members of the Rochester Downtown Development Corporation, Warren talked about something that should resonate even with some of RBTL’s strongest critics: A new theater, she said, will “increase life after 5 in downtown Rochester.” (The RDDC briefings are considered off-the-record talks, but I have Warren’s permission to pass on what she said.) Warren talked about the importance of increasing the number of people who come downtown year-round – not just for a couple of big festivals in the early summer and early fall. She talked about the potential for having additional people walking the streets downtown before and after a play, going to nearby restaurants or bars. And yes, people will do that. “You need boots on the ground for people to know that something’s happening downtown,” she said. Warren emphasized a key principle of good urban planning: if you increase the number of people walking around downtown, you increase people’s comfort level. You erode the perception that downtown isn’t safe – “not just because we have a police station across the street,” she said, “but because people are walking the streets having a good time.” I’ll keep sharing my thoughts and concerns about the Parcel 5 issue as we wait for the next stage in the city’s decision. But for the moment, Warren’s “life after 5” argument seems a good foundation for the “pro” side of the argument. rochestercitynewspaper.com

Local reps try to woo Amazon

Rochester and Buffalo officials and economic development organizations are teaming up to pitch Amazon on locating its second North American headquarters in the socalled Buffalo Rochester Metro Corridor. In a press release, various local officials boasted of the region’s low-cost operating environment, highly-skilled workforce, “world class” colleges and universities, a growing start-up culture, and valuable knowledge in radio-frequency identification, sustainable packaging, flight controls, drone technology, high-performance computing, software development, and data analytics. The company plans to announce its chosen site next year.

Collins faces ethics scrutiny

The House Committee on Ethics said it is continuing its review of Republican Chris Collins’s purchase of stocks in Australian biotech company Innate Immunotherapeutics and actions he took on the company’s behalf. It released a July report from the Office of Congressional Ethics that recommended continued review of the stock purchase “because there is a substantial reason to believe that Representative Collins shared material nonpublic information in

the purchase of Innate stock, in violation of House rules, standards of conduct, and federal law.” Likewise, the report recommends that the ethics committee review a meeting Collins had with National Institutes of Health representatives, where he suggested that NIH representatives meet with Innate staff to discuss the company’s clinical trial designs. There’s substantial reason to believe that Collins took or requested official action that would help a company in which he had a significant financial interest, the Office of Congressional Ethics report says.

Local summit aims for action on climate

Schools’ bullying reports criticized

Many of New York’s public schools are not doing enough to protect their students from bullying, harassment, and discrimination, according to an audit by Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli. The audit looked at how well schools are in compliance with the Dignity for All Students Act and found that many schools underreport, fail to report, or incorrectly report incidents of harassment and bias based on race, religion, sexual orientation, and gender identity. Penfield High School, Irondequoit High School, and East Upper High School were among those audited and compliance was found to be insufficient.

OCTOBER 18 - 24, 2017

For several years, climate and environmental activists have been calling for New York to take serious, aggressive action to transition the state to 100 percent renewable energy. The state has made progress. It now requires utilities to get half of their electricity from renewables by 2030. And earlier this year, New York and some other Northeast states approved – at New York officials’ urging – a tougher cap on power-plant carbon emissions. New York climate activists advocated around both actions, pushing hard for the parts they liked and calling out the parts they didn’t. They focused on specific policies, and their details, as a way to move the state toward a broader renewable energy goal. And that’s an approach many activists want to see more of, says Sue Hughes-Smith, a Rochester People’s Climate Coalition leadership team member. That’s why a group of climate and renewable-energy advocacy groups, including the Rochester People’s Climate Coalition and Mothers Out

Front, have organized the New York Climate Solutions Summit, which takes place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. October 28 at the Harley School in Brighton. The registration fee is $20. The day-long summit includes workshops and case study presentations on renewables, energy efficiency, transportation, movement building, and environmental justice. The keynote speakers will be former Sierra Club President Aaron Mair and ecologist and author Sandra Steingraber. Ultimately, organizers want to advance the discussion around what sort of actions will be required to move the state off of fossil fuels, Hughes-Smith says. Some of the efforts will be legislative; others will be technical, such as identifying realistic targets for wind or solar power development, she says. “There is a solution,” says Hughes-Smith. “We can do this.” Information on the summit is available at http://nyclimatesummit.org.

Leaders of a Rochester neighborhood organization say that illegal drugs – everything from pot to heroin – are wreaking havoc on city families and neighborhoods. And they want law enforcement officials to take tougher action on drug users as well as sellers.

NEIGHBORHOODS | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

Group seeks tough action on drugs A group of city residents is asking state and local law enforcement to take a much tougher approach to eliminating illegal drug sales and use in Rochester, which they say is out of control. An organization called Many Neighbors Building Neighborhoods, which has also opposed some recent development projects in their areas, held a meeting at East High School last week to push their anti-drug effort. Many of the people who attended the meeting said illegal drugs – everything from pot to heroin – are wreaking havoc on city families and neighborhoods. Reading from letters they said they sent to state and local law enforcement and justice officials, MNBN organizers called for several actions, some of them controversial. For instance, they want a “central database that citizens can enter alleged, ongoing problem drug houses, drug locations, and drug users.” The information would be shared with all areas of law enforcement. They also said they want an increase in arrests and enforcement of tougher sentencing for all forms of illegal drug sales and distribution, including marijuana, which has been legalized in some states. “We take no delight in incarcerating people, but we need to stop this

devastation,” Mary Coffey said. Coffey, who is active in several neighborhood groups, led the MNBN meeting. Law enforcement officers at the meeting, including Rochester Police Chief Michael Ciminelli, said they would look into suggestions like creating a citizen-led data base for reporting suspected drug crimes. But informationsharing is already a key component of their work, he said. And District Attorney Sandra Doorley said her office is acutely aware of the drug problems in the Rochester area. For instance, there have been 85 opioidrelated fatalities and 350 non-fatality cases so far this year, she said. But it’s simply not possible to arrest and incarcerate everybody for possessing small amounts of marijuana, she said. One resident from the PlymouthExchange neighborhood said many young people need more loving adults in their lives to keep them from making wrong choices. Others said more help from the medical community is desperately needed. Some people in the audience were concerned about the large police presence at the meeting and strongly opposed

criminalizing drug users, arguing that it doesn’t cure addiction. “Listening to some of this makes me furious,” said Rebecca Baker, who formed Substance Overdose Awareness Recovery Services after her son died of an overdose last year. Addiction is a disease and should be treated like one, she said. A lack of accessible treatment programs and available beds is the main barrier addicts and their families face in this area, Baker said. Baker helped 40 people get treatment in the last three months, but could find treatment for only one in Monroe County, she said.

Report shows gains, struggles Compared to last year, more City of Rochester 4-year-olds are enrolled in pre-k programs, more 3- year-olds have received comprehensive early intervention screenings, and more city high school students have applied for college financial aid. These are some of the gains highlighted by ROC the Future’s annual State of the Children report. The coalition tracks student achievement and tries to identify ways the community can help children be more successful. The report also shows some areas where schools and students still struggle. For example, only 1 percent of city eighth graders passed the most recent state math assessment. Similarly, only 10 percent of city third graders read at the level they’re supposed to. That’s an increase from 6.6 percent in 2015 and 8.2 percent last year, but the numbers are still incredibly low. And while pre-k enrollment has increased, over 60 percent of students in city pre-k programs are chronically absent, according to the report. Reading skills and absenteeism have “an enormous negative affect on students’ overall academic success,” ROC the Future Alliance director Jack Campbell said in a press release on the report. More details from the report are available at http://www. actrochester.org/roc-the-future.

Preservation focus: Porches, a roundhouse...

Front porches on Rutgers. PHOTO BY JACOB WALSH

Older buildings can give a neighborhood and an entire city or village a unique character that new developments don’t have – especially when there are a lot of older buildings, as there are in the Greater Rochester area. And preserving the buildings is important, not just because they’re nice to look at but also because they can attract residents and businesses and improve the community itself. To help with that preservation, every year the Landmark Society of Western New York selects five important parts of the Greater Rochester region’s built environment for special recognition: inclusion on its Five to Revive list. The list consists of things – buildings, usually – that are important historically but that also need help and that, if they’re rehabilitated, can serve as “catalytic projects” in their communities. This year’s Five to Revive list includes four buildings: the Elim Bible Institute in Lima, the Lehigh Valley Railroad Roundhouse in Manchester, the DeMay Hotel in Greece, and the Tent City building in northwest Rochester. The fifth selection is not a building but a building element, one with big visual and nostalgic appeal: front porches. 6 CITY

OCTOBER 18 - 24, 2017

Front porches, the Landmark Society says, are an important part of individual houses and are also important to many neighborhoods in the city and the region. But they’re a bit of an endangered species. Because they’re exterior features of a house – and are often made partly or completely of wood – they’re vulnerable to deterioration. Including front porches on the list is a good example of the purpose of the Landmark Society’s annual selection. “Five to Revive,” says the Landmark Society’s executive director, Wayne Goodman, “sheds a light on a need.” It calls attention to significant buildings and architectural features that the public may not know about or, in the case of front porches, may take for granted but that need help in order to survive. As they decide what to add to the list each year, Landmark Society leaders and staff also consider the potential use for buildings and elements. “One of the important things about preservation is to make sure it has a viable use,” says board president Tom Castelein. “You can’t just put it behind a velvet rope and say, ‘There it is.’” “That’s not sustainable,” Castelein says. “It really isn’t.”

Five to Revive illustrates the Landmark Society’s interest in both neighborhoods and economic development, says Larry Francer, the organization’s associate director of preservation. “That’s what preservation is,” he says: not just making individual buildings better, “but whole communities better.” Sometimes the Landmark Society’s recognition helps property owners get grants or other support. Sometimes the listing attracts new owners. Sometimes it does both. That was the case with the Eastman Dental Dispensary on East Main Street, which was included on the first Five to Revive list, in 2013. The building, now restored and serving as a senior housing complex, was built in 1917 for a center founded by George Eastman to provide dental care for poor children and training for future dentists. But it had been vacant for years. The Five to Revive recognition helped bring it to developers’ attention and also helped leverage state funding for rehabilitation. The Dental Dispensary’s preservation and reuse has not only protected an important building but has also helped spur efforts by neighborhood groups and city

officials to strengthen that area of East Main Street and connect downtown to the Public Market area. Also important is the Landmark Society’s focus on structural elements like porches. Preserving and finding new uses for buildings like Tent City and the Lehigh Valley roundhouse won’t be done by a single individual, but many preservation efforts do depend on the work of individual owners of houses, small institutions, and commercial buildings. And it’s the grouping of houses, institutions, and commercial buildings, and collections of elements like porches, not single grand mansions, that give communities a unique character. That kind of preservation can be fostered as much by awareness and knowledge as by money. Numerous resources are available in libraries and specialty publications, and the Landmark Society itself is a resource for guidance and contacts with skilled tradespeople.

THE 2017 FIVE TO REVIVE The Elim Bible Institute, in the Village of Lima,

Livingston County. An educational institution founded in 1832 as a Methodist seminary, the property was bought in the 1950’s by the Elim Bible Institute. While the entire campus has the potential to serve a variety of community uses, the Landmark Society says, its centerpiece, College Hall, needs major repairs, something that small religious institutions find almost impossible to finance. Lehigh Valley Railroad Roundhouse, Village of

Manchester, Ontario County. Built in 1916, it’s one of the few train roundhouses left in the northeastern US, the Landmark Society says. It went out of use in 1970 and has been in property tax default for more than 20 years, and has been deteriorating, but local officials believe it has development potential.

Hotel DeMay in the Town of Greece, Monroe

County. An unusual survivor in a town dominated by contemporary suburban residential and commercial development, the little hotel was built in 1909 and has been vacant since the early 2000’s. Developers have had their eye on it, hoping to tear it down and replace it with a gas station and convenience store. Last winter, fans of the hotel formed a group they’re calling Save the DeMay and have been pushing for its preservation.

Tent City building, 280 Lyell Avenue, Rochester.

Vacant for more than a decade, this five-story brick building was originally a chair factory on the bank of the Erie Canal. From 1959 through 1999, it housed Tent City, a lively store for campers and other outdoors enthusiasts. Now, area residents and business leaders hope it can be redeveloped and again contribute to the vitality of the neighborhood. Front porches. Common on older houses of a variety

of architectural styles throughout Western New York, front porches “are integral to both their appearance and their function,” says the Landmark Society. While garages are a dominant feature of the facade of many newer suburban houses, front porches make a different social statement. They’re an extension of the interior living space, connecting the private life of the occupants to community life outside, and, as the Landmark Society description says, they invite “approach and interaction.” Front porches direct life from inside the house outward. Rather than seeming to be barriers, they seem welcoming. And a street lined with multiple houses that have front porches is not only attractive but in warm weather, it’s often livelier. There are people there, interacting with neighbors and passersby. But porches are unusually susceptible to deterioration and damage, often unseen for years. Railings, floors, ceilings: all are open to the elements all year long. And, the Landmark Society notes, repairs can do more harm than good if they aren’t done well and with materials consistent with the architectural style of the house. The extreme: ripping off the porch to avoid the cost of repairs. Removal or improper restoration harms both the character of the house and the character of the neighborhood. rochestercitynewspaper.com

ETHICS REFORM

MY AGENDA


SHOULD WE REWRITE NEW YORK’S CONSTITUTION?

POLITICS | BY JEREMY MOULE

New York’s government has problems. What they are, exactly, depends on who’s doing the talking, but virtually every New Yorker has a gripe about the way Albany operates. Almost universally, however, corruption – or the appearance of it – tops the list, and for good reason. Since 2000, more than 30 state legislators have resigned or been forced out of their seats because of criminal charges, says Tom Bergdall, senior associate with the good-government group Citizens Union. State lawmakers haven’t done enough to take on the issue, he says. But Citizens Union sees an opportunity to force some important ethics reforms – and some other government changes – through a state constitutional convention. When voters go to the polls on November 7, there will be a question on the ballot asking whether they want the state to hold a convention. If the measure passes, it’ll be the start of a process that opens up the entire constitution to revision. Citizens Union is part of a loose, sprawling coalition of groups and individuals campaigning in support of a

convention. The supporters come from across the political spectrum and include activists, elected officials, academics, and various reform groups. But an equally broad coalition of groups is campaigning against a convention. The opposition brings together some groups that are on opposite sides of issues most of the time. Planned Parenthood’s statewide advocacy arm and the National Right to Life Committee both oppose the constitutional convention proposal, for instance. So do the New York State Conservative Party and all of the major public employee unions. Some of the opponents argue that a convention would risk key rights and protections laid out in the constitution. Others simply think it would be an expensive waste of time. The state’s constitution is a sweeping document that’s longer than “The Great Gatsby.” It covers everything from the organization of state government to fundamental requirements for banks and corporations.

It also makes public education a right for New Yorkers and expands on some rights guaranteed under the US Constitution. For example, New York has stronger due process protection in its constitution than the federal government does, says Jim Malatras, president of SUNY’s Rockefeller Institute of Government, a publicpolicy think tank that isn’t taking a position on the convention. Every 20 years, New Yorkers vote on whether the state should convene a constitutional convention, an arrangement that itself was born from the 1938 convention. The last vote was in 1997, and the proposition went down at the polls. “This is a great authority and right that gets vested in people,” Malatras says. If voters reject this year’s measure, nothing will happen. They’ll get another chance to vote again in 2037, unless the Legislature acts to convene a convention outside of the normal cycle, as it did in 1967. That’s the last year the state held

a ConCon, the shorthand that those in and close to government use for a constitutional convention. If the ConCon proposition passes, the next step is to choose delegates to the convention. Voters will do that in the November 2018 general election. They’ll select 15 delegates on a statewide basis, and they’ll choose three additional delegates from their own State Senate district. Starting in April 2019, the elected delegates will meet for several months to draft proposed revisions to the constitution, and those revisions will be put on the November 2019 ballot. None of the proposals will go into effect unless voters approve them. Both sides are stressing some key issues as they make their case, but nobody can guarantee what the convention will take up. Aspiring delegates would most likely lay out their platform during their election campaign next year. So the convention’s agenda “depends on who gets elected, quite frankly,” Malatras says.

THE PROS On paper, at least, a constitutional convention provides vast opportunities for reforming and modernizing state government. The Rockefeller Institute and Albany Law School’s Government Law Center have actually put a number on the opportunities: 106. The two organizations have published a booklet summarizing potential constitutional changes offered as suggestions or warnings by politicians, academics, journalists, advocates, and pundits. The ideas are far ranging and represent a variety of political and ideological perspectives. Among the possibilities listed in the booklet: establishing a right to health care for New Yorkers, formalizing the statewide judicial ban on capital punishment, implementing recall elections, obligating state and local governments to evaluate and act on climate change, and allowing state education aid to go to religious schools. Advocacy groups have some ideas of their own. Forward March NY, a women’s-rights advocacy group that formed earlier this year, says the convention would provide a way to add reproductive rights protections to the constitution. The document is silent on the matter. Forward March also sees an opportunity to broaden anti-discrimination provisions to include sex and gender; the constitution currently prohibits discrimination based on race, color, creed, or religion. And the group says the state’s marriage equality laws should be written into the constitution. The New York State Bar Association also sees a convention as an opportunity to expand anti-discrimination protections. But it’s also placing its support behind the convention because it would provide an effective way to restructure and simplify New York’s court system, which it says is more complicated than any other state’s. The Bar Association also sides with good-government groups who say that a convention should be used to modernize state elections and voter registration. The current constitution has provisions that prevent reforms that could increase voter participation, such as allowing registration on Election Day and allowing anyone to cast an absentee ballot instead of voting at polls. Citizen’s Union’s Bergdall says his organization also wants early voting incorporated into the constitution. And most supporters want changes to the state’s legislative redistricting process. 10 CITY OCTOBER 18 - 24, 2017

Many New Yorkers are simply tired of watching government officials get busted for bribery, bid-rigging, favoritism, pay-to-play schemes, and so on. “We have a real problem,” Bergdall says, “and we need to make some real changes to try and save democracy for our children and grandchildren.” Citizens Union sees a convention as the route to a full-time legislature and to strong limits on lawmakers concerning outside income, if not an outright ban on it. The outside income issue received major attention after the arrest and conviction – since overturned by an appeals court – of former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver. A jury found him guilty of accepting $4 million in payments for legal work but then using his public office to take official actions that benefited his clients. Citizens Union also wants public financing of campaigns added to the constitution. Various public campaignfinance proposals have been introduced in the legislature, but Republican leaders generally oppose the idea, so the bills die. In fact, ideological and practical differences often slow down various ethics reform

proposals, if they don’t kill them entirely. Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb, a Republican from Canandaigua, has noted that it took the Legislature seven years to pass measures that strip state pensions from government officials who are convicted of public corruption charges. The delay was due largely to disagreement between Democratic leaders in the Assembly, Republican leaders in the Senate, and Governor Andrew Cuomo. Concerns from influential public employees unions were also a factor. These are the sort of details and differences that delegates will have to work through if voters approve a constitutional convention. But Kolb frames the convention a little differently: it’s less about the specific reforms, and more whether New Yorkers think their government is working for them. If they think it isn’t, he says, they should vote for the convention. “New York’s embarrassing record of corruption speaks for itself,” says Kolb, who is considering a gubernatorial run next year. “It is painfully obvious that Albany is not going to change from within. A convention empowers the voters to shake up the status quo, and fix a terribly broken system.”

ALSO ON THE BALLOT

THE CONS Opponents tend to stress the unknowns of a constitutional convention. Where supporters frame ConCon as an opportunity, opponents caution that it’s a gamble. Public employees’ unions are warning their members that the convention could lead to constitutional changes that jeopardize their pensions. But any changes would likely impact future public employees, not current ones, because the benefits are contractual obligations. The state teachers union is also warning its members, and the public, that the convention could lead to amendments that undermine public education by clearing the way for private-school tuition vouchers or tax credits, charter schools, and local tax caps. Bronson says the provision barring state aid to religious schools could also be at risk. The state constitution provides for the preservation of almost 3 million acres in the Adirondack Mountains and additional land in the Catskills. Some of the state’s largest environmental advocacy groups argue that a convention puts those protections at risk. Environmental Advocates of New York wants a constitutional amendment guaranteeing New Yorkers’ rights to “healthy air, clean water, and a safe climate,” but the organization warns that a convention could leave environmental protections in the constitution vulnerable. The constitution explicitly authorizes the state to spend money for forest and wildlife conservation, acquiring property for public parks, and protecting air and water quality. Abortion-rights supporters and opponents worry about changes to the constitution centered on a woman’s right to choose; the current document is silent on that issue. Many of the arguments against a constitutional convention are worst-case scenarios, says the Rockefeller Institute’s Malatras. But opponents argue, more or less, that those worst-case scenarios shouldn’t be ignored. They caution that interest groups with big bank accounts – dark-money outfits controlled by billionaires, unions, anti-gun groups, pro-gun groups, and so on – could influence the course of the convention or the election of delegates. Historically, they argue, politicians or politically-connected people end up serving as the bulk of the delegates, since these are the people who know how to file candidate petitions, raise money, and run campaigns. For some opponents, the volatile and unpredictable political environment is a

In addition to the proposal regarding a Constitutional Convention, two proposed amendments to the New York State Constitution will be on the November 7 ballot. They are: • Proposal No. 2, which would allow for courts to reduce or revoke a public officials’ pensions if they are found guilty of corruption charges relating to the duties of their office or job. “Public officials,” for the purpose of the amendment, includes all state elected officials, people appointed to positions by the governor, local elected officials, department heads at all levels of government, board and commission members, public-benefit corporation or state authority heads, judges and justices, and any legislative, executive, or judicial staff member who aides in drafting legislation, developing regulations, and judicial decision-making.

concern. Progressive Con-Con supporters often refer to the 1938 convention when making their case. After that convention, voters approved amendments that, among a slew of other things, granted workers the right to form unions and guaranteed a statewide welfare system. But progressive opponents point to the 2016 presidential election as a cautionary tale. The 1938 convention took place during the New Deal era, which, they note, was a vastly different environment nationally. “As a progressive person, I’m concerned that the mood of the country is not going in a progressive direction,” says Assembly member Harry Bronson, who opposes the convention. “And I also believe that’s the case here in New York, although we’re much more progressive than the rest of the states.” Tom King, president of the New York Rifle and Pistol Association, has expressed similar concerns from a different side of the political spectrum. His association opposes a convention. “Corrupt politicians and their friends and family members will end up being elected as delegates,” King told the New York Daily News in June. “I am sure their first goal will be to attack our rights.” But the convention could also fall flat, which may be the simplest argument against it. That’s what happened in 1967: voters rejected the package of amendments that were presented to them after that convention.

A new convention could have a similar result, and at an estimated cost of $50 to $75 million. That’s why the state Conservative Party opposes the idea. “It is important for voters to understand that the history of holding constitutional conventions proves they are a colossal waste of taxpayers’ money that fails to accomplish what supporters claim,” Conservative Party chair Michael Long said in a January press release announcing the group’s position. Long and other opponents also argue that the state already has a process for amending the constitution that, while sometimes slow, is targeted to specific changes and is plenty effective. The Legislature has to pass the amendment twice – a general election where legislators are up for election has to happen between the two votes – and then it’s put on the ballot. And this year, they say, one of the proposed amendments on the ballot speaks to the key argument for a convention: ethics reform. The amendment would strip elected officials of their state pensions if they are convicted of public corruption charges. “I think that is a direct counter that we have to have a convention in order to correct the corruption that people are finding in Albany,” Bronson says.

• Proposal No. 3, which provides a mechanism for local governments to use forest preserve land for addressing health and safety concerns, such as bridge hazards; dangerous roadway curves; road relocation, reconstruction, or maintenance; and necessary drinking water wells. It also allows for bike paths and certain public utility lines – and improvements to them – alongside highways that cross forest preserve land. The state is creating a 250-acre land account to replace any lost forest preserve land.

A full plate [ FEATURE ] BY MARY RICE

Chickpea Magazine CHICKPEAMAGAZINE.COM

As one of just two people behind Chickpea Magazine, Cara Livermore always has a full plate. The Rochester-based vegan quarterly publication — which Livermore runs with her partner, Bob Lawton, who handles sales and shipping — is a collection of recipes, stories, and articles from people around the world. But it’s Livermore that pulls the threads together. Her typical day goes something like this: In the morning, Livermore cooks recipes submitted by the magazine’s contributors, then plates and photographs the food, edits the photos, cleans the kitchen, works on layout and design, and answers customer service emails for a couple of hours. Finally, she preps the recipes for the next day. “Everything you see in the magazine, I’ve touched,” she says. From the layout and lettering to design, photography, and recipe development, Livermore is the creative engine behind the magazine she and Lawton launched in 2011. Available in both print and digital format, Chickpea is stocked in stores

as far away as Sweden and Japan, and locally at Hart’s Local Grocers, Little Button, and Useless Objects. Livermore has a BFA in drawing and illustration from SUNY Oswego, where she also studied photography and design. After graduating in 2009, she found she was creatively burnt out from years of college art classes, and started getting into food and cooking. Around the same time, she and Lawton moved into their first apartment together and decided to go vegan for environmental, health, and animal rights reasons. Livermore chronicled their transition to veganism on Tumblr with a blog called hipsterfood, posting photos of her cooking, and engaging with other vegan bloggers. Within eight months, Livermore says, hipsterfood had 30,000 followers. But Livermore wanted to create something larger. She disliked blog maintenance — online comments, the inevitable Internet troll — and was seeking something more inclusive for the vegan scene. Livermore says that after a year, her photos and recipes had both improved, and it was time to move on. The first issue of Chickpea Magazine was funded through Kickstarter and published in fall 2011, with its namesake legume on

the cover. Livermore and Lawton wrote and photographed much of the content for that first issue themselves, though they also had contributions from vegans who had followed them from hipsterfood to the new publication. Chickpea now has around 100 contributors, and Livermore says she consistently receives more proposals than she has room for. Picking up an issue of Chickpea, it’s apparent it’s not a typical magazine. It’s printed on heavy, sturdy paper — more like

a coffee table book than the slippery, glossy magazines at the checkout aisle. There are no advertisements; the 96 pages of the latest issue are filled with nothing but recipes, photos, reviews, articles, stories, and city guides from contributors all over the world. All of Chickpea’s revenue comes from print and online sales ($5 for a digital issue, $20 for print), with 100 percent of that revenue going to pay contributors. Neither Livermore nor Lawton draw a salary from Chickpea — Livermore does freelance work on the side as Serif & Script Co., and Lawton has a day job — though Livermore is hoping to pay herself in 2018. Though Chickpea is created by vegans, Livermore is on an ongoing mission to get non-vegans involved as readers. Remembering the reactions of her friends and family when she adopted the lifestyle, Livermore says she and Lawton try to be diplomatic about their lifestyle, not prescriptive. “The way we speak is how we’d have liked to be spoken to when we went vegan,” she says. Chickpea’s brand of veganism is one that nearly anyone can try, she says, and doesn’t delve much into specialty niche products that the average consumer might not be familiar with. “It’s not all psyllium husks,” Livermore jokes, referring to the plant-based fiber often used in vegan recipes as a thickener. For Livermore personally, a vegan lifestyle has expanded her horizons. “A lot of people think veganism is about taking things away,” she says. “But creativity comes from limitations.” Livermore says that going vegan forced her to learn how to cook. She challenges herself to incorporate different vegetables and spices each week, something she never would have done when she ate a limited diet of pasta with cheese and chicken tenders, she says. Currently, Livermore produces Chickpea Magazine from her home in the South Wedge. Along with her freelance work, Livermore teaches classes on photography and food styling at the Rochester Brainery, and participates in craft and publishing fairs, such as the Vegan Shop-Up in Brooklyn and the Handmade Holiday show in the Wedge. When asked how she manages to produce a quarterly publication and keep up a busy freelance business on top of it, Livermore says she’s become a master in “time hacking.” Case in point: while being photographed for this story, Livermore was in the kitchen making curried squash soup and maple chai banana bread. Both recipes are slated to appear in Chickpea’s 25th issue. rochestercitynewspaper.com CITY 13

Released on October 6 through New Amsterdam Records, “Orpheus Unsung” is a wordless post-rock opera written by composer-guitarist Steven Mackey and composer-percussionist Jason Treuting, an Eastman School of Music alumnus. Mackey and Treuting’s music is just as wild and mercurial as the hero’s journey it depicts: The mythical musician and poet Orpheus travels to the underworld and back in an ultimately vain attempt to rescue his wife Eurydice from death. The approximately hour-long score features jam band and prog-rock aesthetics, melodic and timbral influences from Asia and the Caribbean, and even noise and punk outbursts. One of the album’s greatest triumphs is its ability to maximize the musical drama with minimal instrumentation. Where Mackey’s electric guitar is flowing, enigmatic, ethereal, and at all times idiosyncratic, Treuting’s drums and percussion are punchy, visceral, cathartic, and even violent at times. The virtuosic interplay between the two musicians is an invigorating trip, especially on the rhythmically dizzying “Pursuit and Trespass,” the downright psychedelic “...and other strange things,” and the deliciously unrelenting nightmare that is “The Mob.” Mackey and Treuting have made an album that transcends the rock genre in immediate, grandiose, and inventive ways. This album is worth listening to again and again for new sonic nuggets you may have missed. — BY DANIEL J. KUSHNER

The rock isn’t necessarily neglected, but it’s used sort of as an afterburner to add push and punch when required. Overall, “Wasting Time” is a mid-tempo affair with mellow beauty and songs that overtake their execution by a more than capable band. It’s rootsy as hell without being the least bit antiquated — mandolin and jaw harp help do that. The group’s gang vocal enthusiasm makes way for its proportionately gentle harmonies and lyrical soul. Instrumentally, the band offers appropriate support, with most of the room left for the vocals. You’ll dig the guitar on “Sin Valley” and on “Rich Life” as it leads the band in a danceable direction with its trills and fills.

16 CITY OCTOBER 18 - 24, 2017

If you’ve seen pianist John Nyerges in concert over the last three decades, chances are you were in Kodak Hall at the Eastman Theatre. Nyerges has occupied the jazz piano chair in the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra’s Pops concerts for 27 years. But when Nyerges takes the stage at Lovin’ Cup on Saturday, he’ll be playing with a far smaller group. His jazz quintet — with Clay Jenkins on trumpet; Doug Stone,

saxophone; Eric Metzgar, drums; and Kyle Vock, bass — will celebrate the release of Nyerges’s soulful new album, “Music From The Heart.” From the heart is an understatement; the album is highly personal, with almost every tune dedicated to someone special. “The Look In Your Eyes” was written for his wife, Kathy, who is also his musical coach. “Solid As Stone” was written for saxophonist Stone. And “Can You Feel That” is for another of the album’s sax players, Alexa Tarantino. Even “WGMC Blues” is dedicated to the radio station Jazz 90.1. The CD provided a chance to honor a favorite teacher, the late Fred Sturm, with “Tribute,” and some of his top influences, Michael and Randy Brecker, with “Brecker’s Blues.” Nyerges is especially enamored of the

late saxophonist Michael Brecker. “I’ve just been so influenced by his sound, his fusion, and his straight-ahead music,” Nyerges says. “I try to always write sitting on the fence between traditional jazz and modern changes.” Growing up near Winton Road and Humboldt Street, Nyerges was surrounded by music. All three of his brothers played instruments and his mother played classical records. At the age of 4, Nyerges went over to the family’s piano and began to pick out a melody. He began lessons at 5, and it wasn’t long before he got a glimpse of his future. “I remember being in third grade and looking up from my elementary school fieldtrip to see the orchestra on


stage,” Nyerges says. “I couldn’t believe my eyes. I was thinking, ‘Are they playing this live?’ It was pretty amazing.” By 12, he was attending Eastman Community Music School on a scholarship. Nyerges gravitated to jazz while a student at East High School, when he watched a classmate, Joe Locke, play vibraphone with the Spider Martin Band in the school auditorium. “I thought, wow, jazz is pretty cool!” Nyerges says. Nyerges played with Locke (now a world-famous jazz artist) for the first time last month when the RPO Pops brought him in as a guest artist. When he was accepted to the Eastman School of Music, Nyerges fell head over heals for jazz in his first year, joining an improv group, taking every opportunity to jam with other students, and playing in a jazz ensemble. “Going to Eastman really opened my ears,” says Nyerges. “That was it for me. I just wanted to play in a jazz quartet for the rest of my life.” In the late-1970’s, Nyerges was playing every weekend at clubs on Alexander Street and other locations around Rochester. He fondly remembers playing with greats like trumpeter Sal Sperazza and bassist Steve Davis, (John Coltrane’s bassist). He’d built a strong local reputation when he got a call out of the blue from the thensoon-to-be RPO Principal Pops Conductor Jeff Tyzik who was producing a session for Allen Vizzutti. It turned out the pianist who was slated to play the session had moved to Florida and neglected to tell Tyzik. “I’m not sure how he got my name, but Jeff hired me,” Nyerges says. “I played pretty well, and he hired me for other gigs. I played two years in Buffalo with Doc Severinsen because they were good friends, and when he got the RPO gig, he brought me on board.” But 27 years is a lengthy gig. How does he explain his longevity? “If you don’t mess up, you keep getting hired,” says Nyerges. “You have to know how to sight-read and you have to be a good soloist. You have to be able to accompany vocalists well, so my years with Nancy Kelly paid off. You always have to come prepared with your A-game. “When the New York Voices come or Eddie Daniels or Arturo Sandoval, I’ll study their recordings so I’ll know what they like

to hear. It’s tough because you’re playing with some of the greatest players out there.” Nyerges says Tyzik’s arrangements help; they’re easy to read and they’re set up logically. “Bands come through town and hire you,” Nyerges says. “I’ve seen the books for Tommy Dorsey, Jimmy Dorsey, Glenn Miller… I’ve played with all those ghost orchestras and some of those charts are pretty messed up and hard to read. They’re hand-written; there are cigarette stains and coffee stains on them. That’s tough. Jeff’s charts are much easier.” As for those RPO Pops guest artists, Nyerges is constantly in awe. “Gerry Niewood was amazing. Playing with Doc was amazing. Linda Hopkins and Arturo Sandoval were excellent,” says Nyerges. “Eddie Daniels is one of the smoothest, most musical clarinetists in classical and jazz. These people are amazing performers.” He has equal respect for the local musicians on his album. “Vince Ercolamento is one of my best friends for more than 30 years. Vinnie’s got a beautiful saxophone sound. Clay Jenkins — he plays with the best. Doug Stone has his own sound. Alexa is a phenomenal young talent, and she is so much fun to work with. I’ve got the old pros and the young star.” Aside from his RPO Pops duties, Nyerges heads the Jazz Instrumental Program, directs ensembles and teaches recording techniques at Monroe Community College. And over the years he’s freelanced with stars like Joe Henderson, Maria Schneider, Joe Lovano, Benny Carter, Bob Brookmeyer, and Steve Gadd. But there’s nothing like releasing a CD showcasing his own musical vision. “It’s about as satisfying as anything can be,” Nyerges says. “They say there are three things you’re supposed to do in life: Have a child, plant a tree, and write a book. I’ve had children and I’ve planted a lot. This is my book.”

Fully rejecting the nuance and up-tempo groove of more traditional hardcore, Florida beatdown upstarts Bodysnatcher sound like a 10 car pile-up in slow motion. It takes less than a minute into the band’s debut record, “Abandonment,” for front man Kyle Medina to break free from the seemingly infinite breakdown behind him and bark “YOU KNOW WHO THE F*** YOU ARE, MOTHERF*****. YOU TURNED YOUR BACK ON ME,” which pretty nicely sums up Bodysnatcher’s entire lyrical ethos. It’s caustic, almost oppressively nihilistic music for a caustic and nihilistic world, and fans of bands like Knocked Loose, Immoralist, and Black Tongue should find a lot to love in its endless bounty of mosh parts.

Hip-hop legends The LOX have been in the game for more than 20 years now, bursting on the East Coast rapper scene around the same time Notorious B.I.G. blew up. The New York City-based trio — Jadakiss, Sheek Louch, and Styles P — came out of a 12-year hiatus in 2013 with an epic surprise EP, “The Trinity.” The group followed up in 2016 with its third studio album, “Filthy America… It’s Beautiful,” under its D-Block Records label and Jay-Z’s Roc Nation. Buffalo’s own heavy hitter Griselda Gang (consisting of Conway, Westside Gunn, and Benny) will be alongside The LOX on its national “Key To Life” tour. Smoke DZA, DJ Statik Selektah, and DJ Green Lantern are also on the bill. The LOX will perform Sunday, October 22, at the German House, 315 Gregory Street. 7 p.m. $25-$30. historicgermanhouse.com; loxofficial.com. — BY AMANDA FINTAK

Stills from Bill Viola’s four video series “Martyrs,” currently installed at the Memorial Art Gallery’s Media Arts Watch space. PHOTO COURTESY KIRA PEROV

Don’t struggle “Martyrs” THROUGH JULY 2018 MEMORIAL ART GALLERY, 500 UNIVERSITY AVENUE WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY, 11 A.M. TO 5 P.M.; THURSDAYS UNTIL 9 P.M. $6-$15; FREE TO MEMBERS AND KIDS 5 AND YOUNGER; HALF PRICE ON THURSDAYS AFTER 6 P.M. 276-8900; MAG.ROCHESTER.EDU [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

Bill Viola’s high definition video series, “Martyrs,” is the latest exhibit in the Memorial Art Gallery’s Media Arts Watch program. In the darkened room dedicated to the program, four narrow, flat-screen monitors surround the viewer, each installed on one of the four walls. Brief, bright dramas play out in sync, requiring the viewer to continuously spin around to follow the progression as four individuals calmly endure elemental torture. On the screens, one man is dragged upward by a rope tied around his ankles as water cascades over him; a woman bound at wrists and ankles is stretched vertically, rack-like in the mid-air, and buffeted by strong winds; a seated man calmly regards the viewer while flames drop around him and eventually engulf him; and in a plot twist, a man is un-buried alive by earth that floats upward and slowly he stands.

Provided info states that the work was originally commissioned by London’s St. Paul’s Cathedral, and that the root, Greek word for martyr means “witness.” “In today’s world, the mass media turns us all into witnesses to the suffering of others,” Viola writes. “The martyrs’ past lives of action can help illuminate our modern lives of inaction.” The work’s unwavering gaze at the body and mind’s ability to gracefully endure pain — and the certainty of death — is engaging. But it’s problematic that it’s beautiful. And something rings awkwardly about Viola’s simultaneous lauding those who have historically suffered and died for a cause while pointing toward modern “inaction.” Is that a call to action? What kind of action? The work seems to ignore the fact that powerful people are still knocking down those who dare to stand. We name avenues for dead heroes while we fail the living ones. When militarized police abuse peaceful protestors, should the crowd film it for the collective audience who already know, or should something more immediate happen? Should we defend ourselves and others, or calmly endure? “Martyrs” is mesmerizing in a way — it gives the viewer permission to feed the natural, morbid instinct to witness intimations of suffering and death, while

not actually displaying any of it on screen. The work is a shadow of reality: There are no visible impacts on the bodies and no wails of pain. There’s no fear. There’s no struggle. Viola’s work follows a long tradition of spiritually-minded art that anesthetizes or romanticizes torture and murder, asking the viewer to witness and ponder and respect their voiceless suffering but without an entry point to assist. We are absolved of duty. Again, this work was made for a church. The Christian faith itself preaches turning the other cheek and is (meant to be) based upon the emulation of the most famous martyr of all. From childhood, Christians bear witness to the idea of his suffering and death and are told it happened on their behalf. The problem of martyrdom is that it places the burden and the penalty of standing on an individual. And look at the state of the world. We should feed the poor, but we had better not discuss dismantling the oppressive systems that guarantee poverty. Talking heads more or less condemn neoNazis, but also condemn those who lift a fist to defend the people they target. While I was viewing the work, several groups of students entered and exited, some showing their discomfort by uttering a low “Whaaaat the fuuuuck?” and fidgeting and cracking jokes.

Their reaction felt similar to real life reactions to being forced to witness abuse and death, while remaining as prone and as accepting as the victims. In many cases when people stand — Kaepernick gently protesting police brutality, a young woman on hunger strike to protest UR President Joel Seligman’s response to complaints about Florian Jaeger’s sexual harassment — there is meager support but there is many times as much jeering from the audience. The structures of power have made many into doubters and cowards, and the concept of martyrdom upholds the idea that suffering, punishment, and death are the banal effects to taking a stand. The only actor in the work who showed a pained expression was the man enduring fire, and from what I could tell, he was the only one not actually enduring the element — the flames at the point of engulfing him had to have been digital, as he and his clothing were unscathed. The other actors endured gracefully in their certainty that the pain would end. This tidy representation of enshrined torture accomplishes little — it doesn’t ask anything lasting of the viewer and lets us deify victimhood, while the agents of the oppression get away with it and remain unnamed and unaccountable. rochestercitynewspaper.com CITY 21

THEATER | ‘THE AGITATORS’ Geva Theatre’s most recent production, “The Agitators,” sweeps audiences back to mid-19th century America and chronicles an unlikely friendship between two famous Rochesterians, Frederick Douglass and Susan B. Anthony. Through abolition, the Civil War, and votes for women, the duo challenged one another — and the nation — to change the course of history. Geva commissioned playwright Mat Smart (“Tinkers to Evers to Chance”) for this world premiere, which runs through November 12. Directed by Logan Vaughn, with Madeleine Lambert as Anthony and Cedric Mays as Douglass. “The Agitators” is on stage through November 12 at Geva Theatre Center, 75 Woodbury Boulevard. Previews are currently underway, and the show opens October 21. Tickets start at $25, and show dates and times vary. 2324382; gevatheatre.org. — BY LEAH STACY PHOTO PROVIDED

Brenda Killackey-Jones’s Mythological Taxidermy is on display through November 30 at Nox Cocktail Lounge, 302 North Goodman Street (Village Gate).

FILM | HOME MOVIE DAY 2017 Those home movies your parents, siblings, aunts and uncles, or friends shot while you were growing up carry a lot of value to them. There’s always something sentimental about those personal movies, but even further, they’re small cultural capsules of a time and place. We get a glimpse of every day life; a snapshot of the world outside of commercialized filmmaking. Home Movie Day, an annual international event, celebrates those amateur films with public screenings. Visual Studies Workshop, on Saturday will be the Rochester location for Home Movie Day 2017. Rochesterians can submit their own Super 8, 8mm, and 16mm films, VHS, DVD, or Quicktime files for inclusion in a free screening that afternoon. Students from the George Eastman Museum’s L. Jeffrey Selznick School of Film Preservation and the University of Rochester’s Association of Moving Image Archivists Student Chapter will inspect the films for condition and run the projections. Home Movie Day 2017 will take place Saturday, October 21, at the VSW auditorium, 31 Prince Street. Movies can be dropped off starting at 11 a.m.; screenings run 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Free. vsw.org; centerforhomemovies.org. — BY JAKE CLAPP

THEATER | ‘FAUST’ For centuries, “Faust” has been synonymous with a specific brand of hubris: ambition that far outstrips wisdom. The tragically thirsty German protagonist has appeared in countless literary and artistic works, most notably by Christopher Marlowe and Goethe. This month, The Kingfisher Theater Company revisits Faust’s folly and fate in a new version of the story, adapted and directed by company member Jess Meyer-Crosby. Having reached the epitome of human achievement, scholar and doctor Martin Faust is filled with despair and about to end himself when he conjures an agent of Hell. After making a deal with the demon, he can only redeem himself by learning that love is the point of living. Kingfisher’s production blends the texts of Marlowe and Goethe with contemporary references, highlighting the timelessness of the story’s ethical and existential questions. “Faust” will be performed at Bread & Water Theater (172 West Main Street), Thursday, October 19, through Sunday, October 29. Performance times are Thursdays and Fridays at 8 p.m.; Saturdays at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.; and Sunday, October 29, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15-$20 for opening weekend, and $20-$25 the rest of the dates. Discounts are available for groups of 10 or more. For more info, call 454-9371, or visit thekingfishertheater.org. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

Secret origins “Professor Marston and the Wonder Women”

Luke Evans stars as Marston, who in the 1920’s worked as a professor of psychology at Radcliffe College alongside his wife, Elizabeth (Rebecca (R), DIRECTED BY ANGELA ROBINSON Hall). The two make a great team, with NOW PLAYING William’s idealistic bent being balanced out by his more pragmatic, outspoken spouse. When one of William’s students, Olive Byrne (Bella [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW Heathcote, “The Neon Demon”), applies to be his research assistant, he admits to feeling some Functioning as a smart, adults-only attraction for the girl. Elizabeth is unphased, companion piece to Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder encouraging him to do as he pleases.

And discovering independent-minded creator, Dr. William that the more intimate the line of questioning, Moulton Marston. the better results the machine is able to produce, their tests of the device soon become its own form of foreplay. The tension gives way to the exploration of their desires, and all three eventually enter into a happy polyamorous relationship. Even as they pursue their bliss, they make Rebecca Hall, Luke Evans, and Bella Heathcote in “Professor Marston and the

every effort to keep their unorthodox private lives away from prying eyes of the prudish public. But of course, that’s easier said than done. As the film delves into the throuple’s more kinky explorations — including steamy threeways and S&M roleplaying — writer-director Angela Robinson refuses to treat her characters’ relationship in any way different from how a heterosexual couple’s relationship might be depicted. Plus, it’s endlessly entertaining to see how their various proclivities informed the Wonder Woman mythos. One can easily imagine a different version of this story directed by a male filmmaker, but Robinson’s nimble, judgment-free direction avoids the leering gaze that another director might have given the more prurient details. When William’s personal habits eventually cost him his job, he lands upon the idea of incorporating his DISC theory — in which he hypothesizes that all of human social conventions can be broken down into four basic behaviors: dominance, inducement, submission, and compliance — into his desire to create a feminist superhero that would inspire young girls and boys alike. He succeeds in selling a publisher on the idea, and Diana of Themyscira is born. It’s a fascinating story, aided by three great performances. Evans convinces us of Marston’s earnest motivations, and Hall is fantastic, capturing Elizabeth’s fierce intelligence and

stubborn charm. As in last year’s “Christine,” she gives a remarkable performance that unfortunately seems doomed not to get the recognition it deserves. Meanwhile, Heathcote keeps Olive from seeming like a pushover, showing us how her submission to the married couple is anything but a passive decision on her part. Their character’s complementary personalities make the relationship work, and as the story requires, all three actors share a combustible onscreen chemistry. Similar to what Bill Condon did with “Kinsey” (or, indeed, what Marston himself was after with his comics), Robinson wraps some unconventional ideas in a package that seems almost wholesome. In doing so, she manages to bring about one of the more nuanced depictions of polyamory I’ve seen onscreen — at least in a relatively mainstream setting. Sure, “Professor Marston and the Wonder Women” falls into some familiar biopic tropes: When a character starts to cough conspicuously, it’s not hard to suss out where their plotline will ultimately be headed. And the narrative is given a rather conventional interview framework, taking place during Marston’s meeting with Josette Frank (Connie Britton), director of the Child Study Association of America in the mid1940’s. She interrogates him, concerned that the unsavory ideas contained in the “Wonder Woman” comics are poisoning the minds of American children. Britton is good (as she always is), but the scenes feel unnecessary. The film’s lush production values lend “Professor Marston and the Wonder Women” a prestige sheen (incidentally, it’s not often that I find myself getting clothes envy, but Evans entire wardrobe is phenomenal, and I want it all). The unconventional themes the film explores balance out the more traditional aesthetic choices, making the somewhat subversive decision to frame the story as a standard biopic feel in its own way revolutionary.

Marshall isn’t licensed to practice law in Connecticut, but rather than grant him the right to do so, the judge (James Josh Gad and Chadwick Boseman in “Marshall.” Cromwell) rules that PHOTO COURTESY OPEN ROAD FILMS Marshall must sit

silently while a reluctant partner, Sam Friedman (Josh Gad) — whose sole experience is with insurance cases — makes the arguments. Friedman doesn’t particularly want to get involved in the first place, and is uncomfortable with the notoriety a hot-button criminal case will bring to his practice (and wishing to avoid calling further attention to himself in a WASP-y community that already tends to view Jewish people with contempt). But Marshall needs him, and convinces him to stay on. The odd-couple dynamic between the nervous Friedman and the swaggering Marshall makes the film equal parts law thriller and buddy movie. Director Reginald Hudlin (“Boomerang”) leans into this, opting for a lightly comedic tone in their scenes together. But this creates a wildly uneven quality, as those scenes feel a bit jarring next to the more dramatic courtroom sequences, where the more salacious details of the case are presented. Boseman and Gad are fun to watch, and play off each other well. They’re an easy pair to root for, and with its easy, feel-good tone, “Marshall” is entertaining. Boseman is particularly strong, adding a bit of shading to a character that might have come off as simply a saint. But the story itself veers toward the overly simplistic, and with any nuance ironed out, the script (by fatherand-son screenwriters Michael and Jacob Koskoff) doesn’t offer us much insight into the man himself or his motivations. As a buddy flick, the film mostly succeeds, but as a tribute to an important figure in American history, it’s hard not to wish it were confident enough to trust him as a protagonist capable of carrying his own movie.

20 Monroe Avenue, Pittsford

The Village of Pittsford, centered on the Erie Canal, is one of the most intact historic communities in our region. It has the rare distinction of being a municipality that in its entirety is a locally designated and National Register listed historic district. These protections have done much to maintain and enhance its unique sense of place, from the many commercial buildings in the village center and the early nineteenth century farmhouses to the former industrial buildings along the canal. Perhaps one of the most significant of these is the Federal/Greek Revival style Potter-Steele-Bolger house at 20 Monroe Avenue. Built in phases, the original portion dates from 1815 and was added onto twice by businessman Henry Potter, achieving its present day form in the 1840s. Later in the 19th century, the Steele family would purchase the home and own it until the current family moved in. Fletcher Steele, our region’s most celebrated landscape architect, was born, raised, and in his later years, maintained his office at the house. A rustic brick path leads past the front wing to one of the two open front porches that shelter the three Greek Revival style entryways with their paneled doors, pilasters, and sidelights. The front wing to the left has a grand entry hall accessed from either porch that leads to the formal ballroom with its hand painted Japanese wall fabric and bountiful classical millwork. The front door gives way to the central

stair-hall of the main house with the formal parlor to the left featuring one of the many working fireplaces, wide-plank wood floors, access to the front wing, and a small office. To the right is a smaller parlor and Fletcher Steele’s highly elaborate skylit “Pompeian” bathroom. A half flight of stairs down from the hall or formal parlor is the rear wing with the formal dining room and historic pantry, modern-era kitchen, and mud room. The second floor of the main house and rear wing are separated by half-flights and contain three bedrooms, two shared full baths, and two servants quarters bedrooms. The plethora of original windows on both floors fill each room with light and everchanging vistas of the expansive grounds. The basement showcases the house’s heavy-timber structure and former beehive oven of the original kitchen. A large carriage house and wandering path to a dock on the Canal complete the property. This 3,450 square foot home has been lovingly preserved for generations and is full of history and potential. Contact realtor Nicholas Perlet of Nothnagle Realtors/ Howard Hanna at 585-313-8455 and make it yours for $399,900. by Christopher Brandt Christopher is a longtime Landmark Society volunteer and blogs about his own historic home at www.myperfectlittlemoneypit.com.

What’s Old Is Weird Again People Different From Us You may have seen the widely distributed weird news story about the Mad Pooper, a woman who has been seen defecating on lawns in Colorado Springs, Colorado. According to KRDO.com, on Sept. 25, an unidentified man claiming to be a spokesman for the Pooper posted (and has since removed) two videos in which he tried to justify her movements and win sympathy for her. In the videos, the spokesman says the unidentified Pooper is not responsible for her actions because she has suffered a traumatic brain injury and has had gender reassignment surgery, leaving her unable to control herself. He also claims her actions are protected by the First Amendment, in response to which Colorado Springs attorney Jeremy Loew called foul: “Defecating in someone’s yard is definitely not protected under the First Amendment and it is actually a crime.” Loew went on: “People all over the world are talking about this, and police will catch her.”

What’s in a Name?

Death Wish Coffee — a cold-brewed, canned coffee the company touts as “fiercely caffeinated” (as much as 4 1/2 times more caffeine per fluid ounce than regular coffee), with a skull and crossbones logo — recalled its 11-ounce cans on Sept. 20 because they could possibly contain the deadly toxin botulin. Company founder Mike Brown, 37, said no incidents have been reported, but he is very serious about the safety of his product. “I know our logo and name might not seem like it reflects that,” Brown told The Washington Post. Production has been halted, and customers can request refunds from Death Wish’s website.

Mermaid Aries, 18, of Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, England, likes to wear her specially made mermaid tail when she swims at local pools. But the Dolphin Centre in Bromsgrove, under new management, has banned her from using the flipper because “they worry I might hit someone with my tail or might get into trouble in the water and drown,” Aries (real name Leia Trigger) told the Worcester News on Sept. 22. “It is my ambition to become a professional mermaid that attends children’s parties and other events. The only problem is that I have nowhere to swim.” (UPDATE: After the story made headlines, the Perdiswell Leisure Centre stepped up. Aquatic development officer Vanessa Bale welcomed Aries to the pool, offering her “early mornings and late evenings.” Aries is thrilled: “I am absolutely ecstatic. I never thought I’d be able to swim with my tail ever again.”) An anonymous bidder in the United States has purchased a pair of Adolf Hitler’s boxer-style underwear for about $6,700, according to auctioneer Bill Panagopoulos of Alexander Historical Auctions in Chesapeake City, Maryland. The drawers, with a size 39 waist and “A.H.” embroidered on them, apparently were left in the Parkhotel Graz in Austria in 1938, Panagopulos told Metro News on Sept. 24. The seller was the grandson of the people who owned the hotel at that time. Panagopulos supposes the buyer will frame the underwear and hang them on a wall in his or her home: “It would be the most talked-about relic in the house.”

[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 29 ]

[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Finding love and romance will be easy, but making up your mind and sticking to one person not so much. Keeping all doors open will require honesty along with abstinence until you make up your mind. Take the time you need and enjoy your pursuit of happiness. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll find it difficult to see situations clearly when it comes to relationships. Your mind will wander, and the chance of overreacting, becoming jealous or possessive, or setting your sights on someone who is not available will stifle your search for that special someone. Let love come to you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your friendly demeanor will capture hearts, offering great popularity at social events and at work. Sharing your thoughts and being flirtatious will be all that’s required. Not everyone is as carefree as you when it comes to love. Don’t play with someone’s feelings if you aren’t interested. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Misunderstandings are likely if you don’t communicate. Go to the source and find out firsthand if someone is interested in you or not. Situations will not be as they appear, and to act in haste could ruin your chance to turn a friendship into a deep and meaningful relationship.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Change your routine or take an interest course. A new hangout or different activity will be the perfect setting to meet someone extraordinary. Listen to what others have to say. Your attentiveness coupled with mystery about what you are all about will intrigue someone special. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Broaden your awareness of others and you will discover that someone has been eyeing you from a distance. Sometimes it’s the quiet person in the back row that will turn out to be your heart’s desire. Don’t rule out anyone until you get to know him or her better.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Love, emotions, ups and downs and romance can be expected this week. It will be challenging, full of adventure and experimentation, changeable and unpredictable — a time of discovering what and whom you really want. Live in the moment. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Use your intuition when dealing with someone who interests you romantically. Don’t expect to get a straight answer or jump to conclusions by what someone says or how someone reacts. Take a discreet approach to relationships until you know if friendship or something more is being offered.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll be tempted to fall for someone you know through work. Be careful not to let your desire cost you your job or a potential advancement. There are plenty of potential partners outside the industry you work in that should be considered before you jeopardize your position. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Expect to face setbacks and uncertainty when it comes to romantic situations. Difficulties with friends’ and relatives’ approval will leave you wondering whether someone who interests you is worth the disruption it causes your loved ones. Don’t give up hope. Discuss your concerns and a solution will be found.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A romantic encounter can take on a whole new meaning in a short period of time. Love at first sight is quite likely to move fast and furiously toward a meaningful commitment and forever relationship. Discuss your future and how you can move forward to build a life as one. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Relationships will pack a punch. Don’t expect things to run smoothly or be willing to give in too readily to someone who is perhaps a little too demanding. Set your standards high, and don’t budge if someone wants too much too fast. Don’t fold under pressure.
