Shame on ‘Hamilton’ cast

(A cast member addressed Mike Pence, the vice president-elect, from the stage after a recent performance.)

To the cast of “Hamilton” through the voice of actor Brandon Dixon: Wrong place, wrong time, wrong everything. Present your play and do your politicking elsewhere. HAROLD JEWELL

Thanks, Obama

In resonance with “Trump’s ‘triumph’” (Urban Journal, November 16): Upon seeing Donald Trump in the Oval Office sitting with Barack Obama, a noble man who always filled the office with dignity, I felt shame and tears. What more might have been accomplished for the mutual benefit of all within a spirit of cooperation instead of meanspirited obstruction. Thank you, Barack. Well done. DOUG HOENER

Trump’s presidency will cause sticker-shock

When America’s Electoral College decided for Donald Trump for president-elect, what it failed to see were the obvious and some not-so-obvious costs involved. For instance, Trump’s probable decision to run the country from “White House North” – Trump Tower in New York City — will become a huge tax burden. This decision will require major security measures to keep the building safe, and many inconveniences to local residents and businesses will become a regular part of life over the next four years and beyond. The Secret Service will probably have to pay Trump to rent space in the building. And Fifth Avenue around the 2 CITY

building will become trafficjammed like never before as the Secret Service and the NYPD protect the president-elect in a very high-risk, unsecured location. Past presidents used much more secure and secluded locations for their “second” White House. This helped keep their protective services at a lower financial burden for the taxpayer. The first lady and Trump’s five children and their spouses add a heavy tax burden with their Secret Service details, too. All of these brand-new security assignments would have been avoided if Clinton was elected. The Clintons have lifetime Secret Service, win or lose, as an expresidential family. We may fail to see the cost of Trump’s election now, but at the end of his term, we may be shocked to see the tax burden that his presidency caused and will continue to cause. DOUGLAS ALLEN

What wage gap?

Our society has frequently heard that women are paid 75 cents for each $1 a man makes; this is engrained into the minds of Americans, and if you disagree with it, that just means you’re sexist. The wage-gap theory is very misleading to the point where it is simply wrong. First, to pay women less than men for the same work is illegal, and if you suspect this is the case, you have to take legal action. Secondly, men tend to go into higher-paying fields than women, although this is now narrowing. Third, if you could pay a woman 75 cents to do the same work a man would do for $1, men would never be hired because they’re too expensive, or they’d be hired at a much lower rate. This theory is simply irrelevant. PK WHITE

Trump’s hypocrisy

Mr. Trump won the Electoral College but lost the popular vote to Secretary Clinton by nearly two million ballots. A mandate does not exist when over 50 percent of the country does not support your agenda. Those between the ages of 18-29 voted 55 percent

to 37 percent in favor of Clinton. Women voted for Clinton by a margin of 12 percent. African Americans voted 88 percent to 8 percent for Clinton. Hispanics favored Clinton 65 percent to 29 percent, and Asians voted for her 65 percent to 29 percent. Furthermore, Mr. Trump was assured victories in battleground states such as North Carolina because of efforts to disenfranchise minority communities. Long lines, confusing directions, and voter ID laws made it difficult for people on the margins to cast their ballots. According to The Sentencing Project, more than 1.6 million Floridians — about 9 percent — could not vote because they are felons. If every American of voting age had an equal opportunity to be recognized, then Secretary Clinton would have defeated Trump soundly. It should also be noted that the economy has now gained nearly five times more jobs under Obama than it did under Bush, and that the unemployment rate has dropped to just below the historical average. We are not a nation under siege by foreigners. We are a nation of kindness, openness, and profound freedoms. We are not a nation going broke. We are driving the economy of the world in unprecedented ways. And we are not weak because of cultural diversity. The nation has always been devoted to diversity and pluralism as a foundation of our political system. Mr. Trump is not aware that America is great because America allowed a man like himself to have a voice. Despite his insatiable discourtesy, strange compulsions, and fascist rhetoric, he was given a serious platform to espouse his ideas. The tolerance and goodwill extended to Mr. Trump have proven just how respectful, rewarding, resilient, robust, redemptive, and recalcitrant this thing called American democracy can be. The very country that Trump spent an election year dismissing as garbage is the same one that made him a billionaire. The same system that he accused of being rigged is the one that propelled him to temporary victory. GEORGE PAYNE

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER

January 20 countdown: Who is Donald Trump? For a brief period, I forced myself to stop thinking about the presidentelect. Then I read last week’s New York Times interview with him. Some people thought the interview showed a Donald Trump who is willing to learn, willing to change. To me, the interview proves that we have no idea about who he is, what he believes, how he makes decisions, and what he’ll do as president. And that’s horrifying. The Trump mind seemed to be on full display during that interview. During the campaign, dismissing years of scientific research, he called climate change a hoax. In the Times interview, he said that he has “an open mind” about it, that he’s “going to look at it very carefully.” During the campaign, he said that the US should torture prisoners. “Waterboarding is absolutely fine,” he said at one rally, “and we should go much farther.” Numerous retired military leaders and defense experts criticized Trump’s embrace of torture – strenuously – but he kept at it. In last week’s Times interview, he said he has changed his mind. He had talked to retired Marine General James Mattis, and Mattis, Trump said, told him he hadn’t found torture to be useful. “I was very impressed by that answer,” Trump said. He has talked with one military leader – one – and he has seen the light. Trump had insisted for years that Barack Obama wasn’t born in the US. He skipped away from that shortly before the election, of course, and he told the Times that now that he has met Obama, he really likes him. During the campaign, Trump promised to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton. He told Clinton to her face that after he was elected president, she’d be in jail. He led campaign crowds in “Lock Her Up!” chants. In the Times interview? He said he doesn’t plan to investigate her. He doesn’t want to “hurt” her. During the campaign he promised to make libel laws less stringent, so he could sue the news media “and win lots of money.” He’s rethinking that position now, he told the Times, because somebody pointed out that loosening libel laws meant he himself could be sued more easily. He spent the campaign whipping up open expressions of hatred toward ethnic and religious minorities. White nationalists celebrated then, and they’re celebrating now. And a man who has provided an outlet for them on a widely read alt-right

website will be his chief presidential strategist. But Trump told the Times that he didn’t think he had tried to energize white nationalists during the campaign, that if they’re energized, he wants to “look into it.” “I want to bring the country together,” he said. Now that he’s headed to the White House, Trump is saying things that are in direct opposition to what he said during the campaign. Did he believe what he said as a candidate? Did he say what he said simply to get elected? When he’s in office, will he do one day what he promised not to do a day earlier? Who on earth knows? Among the writers present at last week’s Times interview was the usually rational columnist Tom Friedman. Weirdly, Friedman seems to have left the session encouraged. “At lunch,” read the headline on his column, “Trump gives critics hope.” Trump, Friedman wrote, “clearly learns by talking to people, not reading.” But this isn’t the behavior of a man who listens and learns. This is the behavior of… what? A man with no clear beliefs at all? A con man who says whatever he has to say to get what he wants? A disturbed man disconnected from reality? Right now, we don’t know. We may not know for months, maybe years, after his inauguration. But at some point, we’ll find out. And I don’t think any us will be happy with what we learn.

A state appeals court ruled that Indian Point nuclear power plant is subject to review under state coastal management policies. That means the federal government won’t be able to relicense the plant unless the state determines the facility is consistent with Hudson River Coastal Zone policies. Top state officials are trying to stop the plant from getting a new license.

Four convicted in UR kidnapping

Four people were convicted in the kidnapping and torture trial of two University of Rochester students. Three were convicted of kidnapping and criminal weapons-related charges. The fourth was convicted of more than two dozen charges ranging from kidnapping to sexual assault. They should be sentenced in December.

Conflict over construction at Sibley

The State Education Department reported that most of the schools classified as low performing or “struggling” have met their goals, meaning they do not have to be turned over to an outside organization or “receiver.” Six schools, including Rochester’s School 41, failed to meet goals and will have a year to improve before a receiver may be assigned.

Renovations are often disruptive, no matter the scale. So some sort of conflict between WinnCompanies and Monroe Community College’s Damon City Campus may have been inevitable. Winn owns and is renovating the Sibley Building downtown for housing and a high-tech incubator; MCC is a tenant in the building. The Monroe Community College Faculty Association sent a letter to school administrators on November 14 laying out some of the problems reported by staff and students since construction intensified. They include water and collapsing ceilings in office and classroom space, rodent and insect problems, and physical discomfort from chemical fumes and air pollution.

Representatives of the Faculty Association have since met with administration officials to talk about the problems, and both sides say some of the issues have been addressed. “We anticipate that the college administration shares our interest in the well-being of the employees and students and will take informed steps to rectify the situation as soon as possible,” says a statement from the Faculty Association. School representatives now meet regularly with the developer and the contractor, says MCC spokesperson Cynthia Cooper Mapes. The contractor has agreed not to perform heavy demolition work between 9 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., the prime time for classes, she

says. And administrators created a process for staff and students to report problems. “There’s really good dialogue going on,” Cooper Mapes says. Initially, the Faculty Association also asked school officials to demand a halt to construction through the rest of the fall semester and to move classes to MCC’s Brighton Campus for the spring semester. But the college’s staff, unions, and administration have now agreed to keep classes at the downtown campus for the spring. The Damon City Campus is on track to move to its new location on State Street for the fall 2017 semester, Cooper Mapes says.

DIVERSITY | BY JEREMY MOULE

“I hear all the time in the community, which is interesting, ‘Leonard, what are you doing with the $500 million?’ I think some of the impatience comes because people just assume I’m sitting on money that we haven’t done anything with yet.” [ LEONARD BROCK, DIRECTOR OF THE ROCHESTER-MONROE COUNTY ANTI-POVERTY INITIATIVE ]

POVERTY | BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN

Anti-poverty group leader: It’s time to act Leonard Brock, director of the RochesterMonroe County Anti-Poverty Initiative, says he knows there’s a risk that people will lose patience with the effort, even though he’s warned since the group’s 2015 beginning that it will be a long haul. “I hear all the time in the community, which is interesting, ‘Leonard, what are you doing with the $500 million?’” Brock says. “I think some of the impatience comes because people just assume I’m sitting on money that we haven’t done anything with yet. They have the wrong impression.” The state awarded Upstate New York $500 million in late 2015, but that’s for projects and initiatives over the entire Finger Lakes area. It’s unclear how much will go to the anti-poverty group’s work, but certainly nowhere near $500 million. The group is getting ready to start its first program, and Brock says he hopes that helps convince the community that the initiative is hard at work. An adult mentoring program will get underway in the group’s three pilot neighborhoods: Beechwood, Marketview Heights, and EMMA (East Main, Mustard, and Atlantic Avenue) before the end of the year. To shake out any bugs, it will start with about 25 families, and quickly move to its

stated goal of serving 300 families, Brock says. “People have to see that we’re doing something,” he says. “They have to see that families are being impacted. We have to get going.” The anti-poverty group’s overall goal is to cut poverty in Rochester in half over 15 years. The mentors will help the working poor overcome barriers to employment such as lack of child care or transportation, help them find living-wage jobs, and then provide coaching to help them keep the job. The mentoring relationship will last as long as the family needs it, Brock says. “It’s kind of hard to predict, but we’re willing and able to spend as much time as needed to help the family move toward selfsufficiency,” he says. The mentors, who will likely have backgrounds in human services or education, will also help underemployed people find better jobs, he says. The group is recruiting families with the help of neighborhood groups, churches, barbershops, and other people and organizations, he says. The anti-poverty group is working with the Catholic Family Center, Action for a Better Community, and Community Place on the mentoring program. The latter two

groups are hiring the mentors and working on other aspects of that part of the program, while the Catholic Family Center is building a peer mentoring network, Brock says. The first year and three months of the mentoring program will cost about $2.9 million, he says. The anti-poverty group has $1.5 million from the state, and the rest from private donors, including Wegmans and ESL. It’s important for people to understand that this initiative isn’t about one group fighting poverty, Brock says. It’s about people and organizations coming together to better use resources to improve the lives of the working poor, and that lifts up the entire community, he says.

Urging solidarity against hate The election of Donald Trump left much of the country with raw nerves, but the outcome is downright frightening to marginalized groups, particularly immigrants, people of color, LGBTQ individuals, and many women. And for good reason: the Southern Poverty Law Center reports more than 700 incidents of “hateful harassment” since the election. Though it may be tempting to brush off someone burning two Pride flags in a Rochester neighborhood as a minor thing, the act has broad implications. “A hate crime carries extra weight,” said Scott Fearing, executive director of the Gay Alliance of the Genesee Valley, at a press conference last week. The act isn’t about just one person; it’s about sending a message to an entire group, he said. The event was headlined by US Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren, who publicly denounced recent hate incidents across the country and encouraged community members to stand up for one another. Warren and Gillibrand were flanked by town supervisors, county legislators, City Council members, and other community leaders. Some faith leaders spoke as well: Rabbi Alan Katz of Temple Sinai, Pastor Roosevelt Dixon of Grace Unity Fellowship Church, and Sareer Fazili, trustee of the Islamic Center of Rochester. The faith leaders said that solidarity and leadership are essential to overcoming hate, and that the opposite of intolerance is not tolerance, but understanding, acceptance, and love.

The pressure is on for East High It’s been almost two years to the day that the University of Rochester proposed taking over East High School; the State Education Department gave the Rochester school district few options. In a district used to crisis, East, one the lowest performing schools in the state, had become a three-alarm fire. If the UR didn’t step up, East’s doors would probably be closed by now. But the pressure on the UR and the city school board to turn East around is almost palpable. All eyes are on this all-important collaboration and what it could mean to the district, which has more than a dozen schools that need significant academic improvement. If the partnership succeeds, does that mean that the intensive intervention, resources, and funding that the UR has applied to East is the answer to fixing troubled schools? On the other side, if the university, with all of its talent, resources, and immense regional clout can’t significantly improve 6 CITY

NOVEMBER 30 - DECEMBER 6, 2016

East, then that? District and UR officials are quick to say that East is nowhere near full recovery, but that there are some strong indications that the intervention is making a difference. “I’m optimistic based on what we’re seeing in our preliminary data that we’re going to get to a point that people will say this is a model that we should replicate,” says Shaun Nelms, East’s superintendent. But East’s success isn’t determined by Nelms or the city school board; that

judgment is up to the State Education Department. Almost as soon as the board and the UR reached their five-year partnership agreement, East fell under the


Last year, we had about 75 percent of the students move from ninth grade to 10th with the right credits.” S H A UN NELMS, EAST HIGH SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENT

state’s receivership law. The designation is typically synonymous with academic failure at virtually every level and the UR became East’s receiver sort of by default. East is meeting most of the incremental goals that the state set for teachers and administrators to turn the school around, Nelms says. For instance, school suspensions decreased sharply in the 2015-2016 school year from 3,000 to 1,000. Daily attendance in grades 6-8 is hovering at 92 percent, and attendance rose from about 65 percent to 82 percent in the upper grades. East didn’t meet its goal of reducing dropout rates below 10 percent, however. But that’s because roughly 33 percent of its upper-grade students had already dropped out before the UR took over, Nelms says. The state is collaborating with East to adjust the goals, however, and says the school has made enough progress to no longer require a permanent receiver. The UR’s partnership with the school board and support from the district’s unions gave

the UR the space it needed to reshape East’s culture, personnel, and systems from the ground up, says Van White, the school board president. “They’ve created something homegrown here,” he says. And they understand that it will need continuous improvement, White says. Some of the changes are substantial, such as restructuring East into three smaller groups: the Lower School, which is grades 6-8; the Upper School, which is grades 9-12; and a special intervention program for ninth graders. Adding sixth graders to East means that teachers can spend more time preparing students for high school, Nelms says. “We wanted to get the kids earlier because a number of kids were coming in reading and writing well below proficiency,” he says. “In math skills, about 98 percent were below grade level.” The ninth-grade intervention is necessary because historically, 52 percent of East’s ninth graders have lacked the credits to move to 10th grade, which is a huge indicator of whether they’ll graduate, Nelms says.

The school came up with a simple credittracking system so that students wouldn’t end up in their senior year without the proper credits. A card on the back of all student ID cards tells students which exams they need to take and the credits they still need to graduate. “Last year, we had about 75 percent of the students move from ninth grade to 10th with the right credits,” Nelms says. The UR also emphasizes a multi-tiered social-emotional support system for East’s students. The school added counselors and social workers, but much of the day-to-day support work is done in family groups. Each group has about 10 students and what Nelms calls caring parent figures or “carents” – sometimes two to a group. “We help them track their own progress, problem-solve, and how to mediate issues they may be having with someone in the building,” he says. For instance, a female student who returned to school after being suspended told Nelms that she was going to get into a fight that day. But Nelms coordinated with staff to defuse tensions and the fight was avoided. “She didn’t really want to fight, but she knew one was coming and she didn’t know how to avoid it,” he says. Another significant change involves both staffing and rehabilitating East’s broken systems, Nelms says. All of East’s employees had to reapply for their jobs, but that surprisingly didn’t result in a huge turnover. But the process did make it clear that standards would be high, starting with a desire to work specifically at East, says Steve Uebbing, a professor with the UR’s Warner School of Education. Uebbing, who leads the UR’s supervision of East, wasn’t just looking for teachers to buy into East’s turnaround; he wanted them to own it, he says. “They’ve supported East’s turnaround plan because they helped to create it,” he says. Firing everybody and starting over with an entirely new staff wouldn’t have worked, anyway, Nelms says. “You had systemic issues that even the best teachers with the best of intentions may not have been able to change,” he says. rochestercitynewspaper.com

Nick Musson several years ago ran the successful Wafel Cart in the Rochester Public Market, and he recently opened the brick-and-mortar Waffle Factory in Webster. Like its name suggests, the restaurant sells waffles with 34 different options for toppings and customization. PHOTOS BY KEVIN FULLER

Listening to Nick Musson talk about the path that led him to opening The Waffle Factory (30 North Avenue, Webster) will give you wanderlust. Musson graduated from Webster Schroeder High School, went on to study in Greece — Musson is Greek and Belgian — worked on both US coasts, ran a successful local food cart, and then came back to Webster to open a brick and mortar location. Musson started The Wafel Cart four years ago, and it became a fixture at Rochester’s Public Market. He was offered a job in New York City and put the cart on hold to relocate there. “I kept getting messages from old customers telling me to come back, that they missed the cart,” Musson says. After learning that the Mad Hatter Tea Room and Café (now Mad Hatter Restaurant and Bakery) was moving locations, Musson called the realtor immediately, and in October of this year, The Waffle Factory opened. The Belgian recipe that Musson uses for his waffles produces dough, rather than a typical waffle batter. The dough is made with pearl sugar from Belgium — the sugar can range in size from something similar to rock salt to larger chunks and therefore does not dissolve as easily — and the result produces something along the lines of a brioche waffle. There are currently 34 different options for waffle toppings, and patrons can customize their own.

The De Bam-Bam ($5) is a waffle topped with marshmallow fluff and Fruity Pebbles cereal. And if you’re looking to channel The King, order the Elvis Waffley ($8), topped with — you guessed it — bacon, bananas, peanut butter, and honey. “My family specialized in chocolate,” say Musson, whose family owned The Candy Kitchen in East Rochester. “I thought Rochester was missing a fun place for desserts.” Musson currently has plans to expand the menu to include more savory items, like breakfast sandwiches, and add more sweets, such as homemade ice cream and milkshakes. In the spring, he plans to open a Belgian-style beer garden with picnic tables, beers on tap, and pretzels and bratwursts on the menu. The Waffle Factory is located at 30 North Avenue, and is open Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Friday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.; and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. 626-1152; rochesterwaffle.com.

Genesee Brew House (25 Cataract Street) will host a four-course pairing dinner on Thursday, December 15, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tickets are $30. Menu items include a chicken and waffle dish and a smoked pork belly and potato hash. Tickets can be purchased through eventbrite.com. geneseebeer.com/brewhouse. Nox (302 North Goodman Street) will host CURE’s 3rd Annual Tacky Sweater Party on Thursday, December 15, from 7 p.m. to 12 a.m. Staff from Nox and Butapub will compete to see who has the ultimate tacky sweaters.

Staff at the museum studied 19th century cookbooks to find recipes made with chocolate and then recorded video of the recipe preparation in the museum’s historic buildings. The videos will be made public on YouTube and Facebook. I’m currently rethinking my career choice and Googling “chocolate historian.”

Local authors pen literature for kids, from tots to teens [ LITERATURE ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY, ILLUSTRATIONS & LAYOUT BY JUSTYN IANNUCCI

Jeff Minerd:

“The Sailweaver’s Son”

The Rochester region has a thriving literary scene for children and teens, with authors writing engaging books at each level, from picture books to middle grade and young adult novels. The genre is celebrated each year at the Rochester Children’s Book Festival, which took place earlier this month. Here, CITY spotlights four local authors who have published work for younger readers in the past year, including works of steampunk fantasy, explorations of balance and self-care, and explanations of science and the natural world. If you’ve got kids who read (or who you’d like to encourage to read) on your holiday shopping lists, the following books are great potential gifts. Check out the online version of this story at rochestercitynewspaper.com for more, including videos of our featured authors reading from their books and describing their work. And leave a comment telling us about your favorite children’s book.

Rochester-based writer Jeff Minerd’s coming-ofage adventure story “The Sailweaver’s Son” follows 15-year-old Tak, an accomplished young sky rider (a sailor of aircrafts that are more ship than plane) whose fascination with big airships sparks an unexpected and dangerous journey. Tak’s world, Etherium, is a kingdom perched on high mountains that rise like islands above dense clouds, where the people traverse the sky in saildriven airships. When he again disobeys an order to steer clear of the kingdom’s royal battleships, Tak

witnesses a strange phenomenon that destroys one of the vessels. After rescuing the sole survivor, he’s hauled before the king, but some authorities doubt his version of events and even accuse him of sabotage. Rumors about the attack scapegoat the Gublins, the “loathsome” race that lives in the coal-rich terrain below the clouds. The King’s advisors call for a war that will also conveniently benefit Etherium’s diminished energy reserves. Accompanied by Brieze, a wizard’s adopted daughter from a neighboring kingdom, Tak sets off to learn the truth about the Gublins and to clear his own name. The slightly steampunk-style fantasy story joins other works in the young adult fantasy genre that present young readers with the idea that acting courageously sometimes means challenging powerful but misguided adults. “I think it’s healthy, if somewhat unsettling, for kids to realize adults are flawed, usually don’t have all of the answers, and are just muddling through as best they can,” Minerd says. In their own time, kids “learn to hold adults accountable to our own professed ideas and values, and point out when we’ve lost our way.” Unlike the central characters in other YA adventure books, Minerd’s hero actually has loving parents who play a central role in his story. “The typical young fantasy or sci-fi hero is an orphan,” Minerd says, citing Frodo Baggins, Luke Skywalker, and Harry Potter. He says that tactic “makes the character more sympathetic and simplifies the story; making it easier for writers to get their young heroes into adventures.” While Minerd set out to create a fantastical world and a compelling adventure that readers could escape into, he says “the real world has a way of creeping in and informing fantasy stories.” Although he didn’t intend the central conflict — a brewing war over fast-disappearing energy resources — to be allegorical, Minerd acknowledges, in a similar way as J.R.R. Tolkien did regarding his own work, that the story has “applicability” to the real world. “The world of Etherium was an ideal place to continues on page 12

explore environmental themes, because the people there have limited space in which to live and limited natural resources to draw upon,” he says. Minerd says he didn’t want to advocate a particular course of action, but to explore how people solve problems. “There is a solution to the problem staring people in the face, but the adults in the story can’t see it, because they can’t get past their fears and prejudices,” he says. “I think if young readers can recognize the foolishness and counter-productive behavior of the adults in the story, they can bring that insight back with them to our world.” A challenging factor in writing for kids, Minerd says, is the portrayal of violence, particularly in one scene. “Sword fights and epic battles are a staple of fantasy fiction,” he says. “Heroes often kill without compunction. I didn’t want to romanticize the violence in my story, but I didn’t want to sanitize it either.” Kids as young as age 10, he adds, have read the book and didn’t seem to be fazed, and among the parents and grandparents who have read it, none objected to the scene. “The Sailweaver’s Son” is Minerd’s debut novel, and the first bit of creative writing he’s published in about two decades. Before switching gears to science and medical writing — which has been published through The National Institutes of Health, MedPage Today, The Futurist, and Scientist magazines — Minerd published short fiction in literary journals, including The North American Review, and won the F. Scott Fitzgerald short story contest. Minerd dedicated “The Sailweaver’s Son” to his son, Noah, who is also a writer and an avid fan of the fantasy genre. “It never would have occurred to me to try writing a fantasy book for young readers if he and I hadn’t read so many together over the years,” he says. “The Sailweaver’s Son” is the first book in Minerd’s “Sky Riders of Etherium” set. Minerd is currently writing the second book, “The Wizard’s Daughter,” which will focus more on Brieze, Tak’s unflappable companion from the first book.

Jennifer Lang Boehl:

“Nana, the Yoga Teaching Gnome”

PHOTO PROVIDED

“Nana, the Yoga Teaching Gnome” is Jennifer Lang Boehl’s short, sweet picture book written with a snappy, nursery rhyme cadence. The story follows sisters Emily and Josephine on a journey to their Nana’s house for a yoga class. Along the way, they ask for directions from various animals, who join them on their trek. And on each page, Boehl alludes to ways that yoga is beneficial, promoting health, balance, kindness, and gratitude. An Irondequoit native, Boehl dedicated the book to her mother, the real life “Nana” to Boehl’s twin daughters, Jaylin and Jenna. “My mother has always exercised, and yoga has become her favorite practice,” she says. “My girls have definitely been inspired by her and love to practice with her during visits. She has shown them the importance of staying healthy, and they now exercise on their own daily.” In addition to writing, Boehl works parttime for the East Irondequoit Central School District as a community education director. She believes that children would benefit from practicing yoga, and would like to see it incorporated into the physical education programs in the schools.


In writing for children, Boehl taps into her own fond memories of exercising her imagination and exploring natural surroundings. “I was privileged to grow up without computers, cellphones, or other devices that keep children inside these days,” she says. “The kids in my neighborhood were the best; we were outside from morning until night.” Though the illustrator for “Nana, the Yoga Teaching Gnome,” Lemuel Paul Roperos, was assigned to Boehl by the book’s producer, Tate Publishing, she’s pleased with his dreamy pictures. Two more gnome books will be published in the next four months, and Boehl has requested for Lemuel to do the illustrations. Boehl’s first children’s book, “That’s Mine, Sissy,” was released in 2013, but she wrote it in 2003, when her daughters were young. She self-published a book in 2014 dedicated to her nephew, who has autism, called, “Why Does Davey Do That?” And her novella, “Holly Bristol: Spirit Hunter,” is the first in a series she’s been writing for young adults.

Kevin Kurtz:

“Sharks and Dolphins”

PHOTO PROVIDED

Kevin Kurtz has written several science- and nature-oriented books for kids, and since 2010 has participated in science expeditions around the world as an education officer with the International Ocean Discovery Program. He comes back from each trip with material that informs his writing and his classroom visits. “Sharks and Dolphins” is the latest educational book for early readers by the Rochester-based writer. Using simple language and engaging photographs, the book discusses the similarities and differences between the two large ocean-dwelling creatures, and helps teach concepts about classification, predators, animal adaptations, and the relationships of animals to their habitats. Kurtz, in 2010, was one of a few educators chosen from across the US to participate in “School of Rock,” an intensive educator workshop that took place on the research vessel “JOIDES Resolution” for

10 days at sea. While scientists drilled into a chain of extinct underwater volcanoes in the Pacific Ocean near New Zealand, Kurtz communicated to the general public — through blogs, social media posts, and live Skype tours of the ship for school groups — what the scientists were seeing and doing. Last May, Kurtz joined the Chicxulub Impact Crater expedition in the Gulf of Mexico — where scientists drilled into the crater from the asteroid impact that wiped out most of the dinosaurs — as an educator-at-sea. He regrouped with scientists a few months later in Germany as they began studying the Chicxulub cores. One take-away Kurtz had from the expedition was “just the time and effort required for scientists to reach their conclusions,” he says. “Also, I got to see hundreds of meters of the crater cores, and even as someone who is not a trained geologist, it was easy for me to see the energy and destruction that was released by the asteroid impact.” Kurtz says he started seriously thinking about becoming a writer when he was in 4th or 5th grade. “I also loved science as a kid, particularly astronomy, geology, and anything related to animals,” he says. Daunted by the challenge of getting published and making a living as a writer after college, Kurtz took a job as an educator at a marine biology lab in Charleston, South Carolina, giving tours and hosting programs for schools groups in the labs and in some of the aquatic habitats. “I found I really loved communicating science to the public, particularly to school kids,” he says. While working as an educator at the South Carolina Aquarium in 2005, Kurtz couldn’t find many in-print children’s books about salt marshes — an ecosystem he adored. “I thought to myself, I should write that book.” “A Day in the Salt Marsh” was published in 2007, and since then, Kurtz has been writing nonfiction books about science and nature specifically for kids. “More and more, I find myself drawn to writing about current scientific research, rather than scientific facts we have known for decades,” he says. And he’s finding that kids are connecting with these topics; they’re excited to know there is still a lot to learn and discover about our world. Kurtz has two more nonfiction picture books coming out with Arbordale Publishing in the next year and a half. “A Day in a Forested Wetland” will be the fourth book in his “A Day in a Habitat” series. The other is a book that compares and contrasts living and nonliving things — “which is actually a lot more complicated topic than it may initially sound,” he says. He’s also gearing up to write at least two books about the Chicxulub Impact Crater expedition. Learn more about Kurtz and his work at kevkurtz.com. continues on page 14

WWW.FREDASTAIRE.COM CLEMENT HAPEMAN Clement Finch Hapeman, born November 7, 1928, in Broadalbin, NY, passed away peacefully in his own home November 19. He is preceded in death by his parents, Arnold Hapeman and Grace Finch Hapeman, his sister Bonnie Clocksin and her husband Paul Clocksin Sr., his wives Louise D. Hapeman and Beatrice Phillips Hapeman and stepson William Phillips. He was 88 years old. Mr. Hapeman had a long career of activism and social research, teaching Sociology for nearly two decades at Monroe Community College as well as HAVING numerous teaching stints at various universities. A philanthropist until the end, he fought for social justice and an end to discrimination due to race, gender, or social standing. He facilitated an outreach program that encouraged gang members to become interested in the library and in reading, integrated choir groups against much opposition, helped develop Neighborhood Watch groups, and advised the authorities about the real reasons for the race riots that occurred here in the sixties. He helped to re-raise his stepdaughter Diane Phillips after a long coma resulting in difficult developmental disabilities. She is in her own home in Clem's beloved 19th Ward, mostly due to vigorous petitioning by himself and Bea, Diane's mother. They helped get legislation passed that allows any disabled person in New York State who needs 24-hour care to stay at home and receive that care, if they can prove it costs less than institutionalization, which it almost always does. He was passionate about city living, instrumental in fighting to keep the arts funded in the public school system, and was one of the original stockholders to get the still fabulous City Newspaper up and rolling.

He has been a wonderful grandfather to Russell Daniel Bacon and Elizabeth Sage Louise Bacon, inspiring in them the desire to travel and discover the unknown, to study, to write, and to view life through a tolerant and humane lens. In a similar fashion, he inspired his favorite nephew, Preston Clocksin, to activism. Preston is married to a Hopi woman and lives on the reservation with her. He worked at the high school as a drug counselor and looked to his uncle Clem, who would integrate neighborhoods by first moving into them, and second, by enacting programs to lift them up, as a role model for social change. He has been a dedicated father to his youngest child, Zirrus VanDevere, who was able to care for him due to the nursing/hospice care of her fiancé Joshua Kidney, enabling Clem to realize his lifelong desire to be at home in his final years. His other descendants include son Dale Douglas Hapeman of West Virginia (wife Sonya, and grown children Jessica and Doug) and daughter Nancy Fedick of Naples, NY (husband Andrew, grown children Matt, Christine and Julie). He is also survived by a niece and numerous nephews comprising the large Clocksin clan, all originally from Rochester, and all with plentiful offspring of their own. An end of life ceremony will be held December 17th at 2 p.m. at the Eckankar Center of Rochester, 3300 Monroe Avenue, Pittsford, NY. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Southern Poverty Law Center, 400 Washington Avenue, Montgomery, Alabama 36104, or make donations at the ECK center.

Susan Williams Beckhorn’s new middle grade novel, “The Wolf’s Boy,” is about an outcast boy and a young wolf struggling together against an Ice Age winter. The book came out in September, and has received starred reviews with Kirkus, Book List, and School Library Journal, and will be the Junior Library Guild Book Club’s choice for December. Beckhorn is known for her award-winning 2006 middle grade book, “The Wind Rider,” set in prehistoric Western Asia, about a wild-hearted young girl who longs for — and seizes — the same freedom her twin brother enjoys. “The Wolf ’s Boy,” Beckhorn’s first book starring a male protagonist, is set in Paleolithic times and tells the story of Kai, a boy born with a clubfoot who was abandoned as an infant and raised by a pack of yellow wolves. Now part of a human community but mostly shunned, he discovers a motherless cub in the wolf pack and brings her back to live with him. As winter sets in, so does the nervousness of the people who see the wolf as a threat. Kai and the wolf set out to survive together in the wild North. The story was born of Beckhorn’s interest in how formerly wild animals, in particular dogs,

cats, and horses, have developed such deep relationships with humans over time. “When I was searching for a setting for my ‘first dog’ story,” Beckhorn says, “I asked Mark Derr, author of ‘How the Dog Became the Dog,’ where such a story might take place.” Derr said that dogs could have been domesticated many places at different times in history, and mentioned China and the Middle East. But something special clicked, Beckhorn says, when he mentioned Chauvet Cave in southeastern France, where in 1994 fossilized footprints were found of a boy and a canine, apparently walking side-by-side. “Chills ran up my spine and I knew this would become the heart of my story,” Beckhorn says. Now a resident of the rural Western New York town of Rexville (south of Rochester, near the Pennsylvania border), Beckhorn grew up in Winchester, Massachusetts, in a family of environmentalists, educators, and writers. From her early years, she developed a lifelong fondness for animals, nature, and reading. “Some of my favorite memories are crowding around on a bed with Mum or Dad, listening to a story; taking turns riding our pony, Maple Sugar, on a trail in the woods with our dog, Spike, trotting along at our sides; or rowing around the swamp in a big old rowboat at our lake in New Hampshire, catching fish, turtles, and frogs,” she says. Beckhorn’s books have a strong theme of nature in them, and more than one centers on youths struggling to find a place within their society while forming strong bonds with animals. Both “The Wolf’s Boy” and “Wind Rider” contain a theme of people grappling with wilderness, and have central characters with strong connections to nature. “Until very recently in the broad spectrum of time, humans were born, grew up, and proved themselves in nature,” she says. “It’s only in the past couple of centuries that we’ve drawn away into manmade environments. I feel very fortunate to have been raised with a strong connection to nature and I want, in my writing, to share that with kids.” Beckhorn says her next book is a story that again takes place in prehistory, this time in the Caribbean, involving a girl and a boy from conflicting cultures, “and a very special dog.” Learn more about Beckhorn and her books at suebeckhorn.com.

Known as Man Ray, the 1920’s-era Parisian Dadaist and Surrealist artist was actually a South Philadelphiaborn Jewish man named Emmanuel Radnitzky. His enigmatic identity, along with the art work and movements he spearheaded, have inspired work in a totally different genre that was also taking off in the 1920’s: jazz. “Dada People,” by New York trumpeter Dave Douglas and Parisian pianist Frank Woeste, with support from bassist Matt Brewer and drummer Clarence Penn, paints a vivid aural picture of the artistic revolution of a century ago. At times, the music is evocative of period composer Erik Satie (like on the track “Oedipe”); sometimes it attempts to capture the spirit of the place where much of the action occurred, as in the lyrical “Montparnasse.” There are also tunes like “Art of Reinvention” that conjure up both Ray’s life and work. But perhaps the most salient relation to early 20th century avant-garde movements can be found in Douglas and Woeste’s tempo-shifting and endlessly experimental compositions.

Rale Micic, John Abercrombie, Peter Bernstein, and Lage Lund “Inspired” Artist Share artistshare.com

They may be known for a wide variety of styles, but there is one thing that four of the top guitarists in jazz have in common: a reverence for the music and style of the late guitar giant Jim Hall. Rale Micic is an emerging Serbian guitarist; John Abercrombie, a top fusion player; and Peter Bernstein and Lage Lund are two of the most innovative guitarists on the contemporary scene. On their homage, “Inspired,” the common denominators are tunes associated with Hall and a fluid, melodic style reminiscent of his playing. The CD contains every possible combination of duet, with the paired guitarists shifting back and forth from rhythm to lead. Each of the four also has a solo, showcasing their abilities to play rhythm, lead, and sometimes bass simultaneously. These solos — “My Ideal” (Bernstein), “Embraceable You” (Abercrombie), “Body and Soul” (Lund), and “Alone Together” (Micic) — provide no shortage of “wow” moments. Only one tune, Hall’s “All Across the City,” is played by all four guitarists in a gorgeous arrangement by Micic. — BY RON NETSKY

Music was more painful. So I started playing at Starbucks like three times a week. I was committed to go, so I had to play no matter how I felt. And I discovered that even on my worst days, those were my best performances. I’d play to the emotion I felt at the moment. I’d try not to perform; I was emoting. That’s when I learned this was awesome, a very healthy process. This is helping me sort through stuff, it’s a release. So I started looking forward to performing. Your songs are gentle and lyrically compelling. Did it bother you being relegated to the background?

I did want to be listened to, but I needed to develop myself. People were in there talking and having coffee. I would definitely get attention, but I could still kind of disappear and become atmosphere.

BRUNCH

Saturday & Sunday 10am - 2pm INSIDE THE MEMORIAL ART GALLERY 500 University Ave | Rochester, NY 14607 585-506-9725 | brownhoundbistro.com FRESH - LOCAL - SEASONAL - SUSTAINABLE 18 CITY NOVEMBER 30-DECEMBER 6, 2016

Lisa Winter’s songs are like little prayers sent up on gossamer wings. They’re lyrically impactful yet melodically gentle. The Rochester singer-songwriter is a compelling performer in her raw simplicity that’s seemingly couched in a pervading melancholy. The music shines regardless; you can blame it on her voice — a voice that comes off coquettish but not contrived. Winter is as honest as her songs. It wasn’t always easy for her; she had to overcome stage fright to get what was in her out. Ultimately her music is what rescued her and what has drawn fans to her. She now has several albums out, including her latest, “Comfort.” Winter came in to the CITY offices to explain. An edited version of that conversation follows. CITY: You were a bit of a late bloomer? Lisa Winter: I really didn’t start singing in

front of people until I was 18. It was a talent contest at my high school, the very end of my senior year. I didn’t really play the guitar, but I learned to play two songs. It was just something I had always wanted to do, though I was shy about singing in front of people, including my family. My parents didn’t know I sang; they would leave the house and I would sing. How did you get over this?

I started playing and singing out a little bit. I went to Geneseo for a year and sang at some coffeehouses around there. But it was really challenging; I had terrible stage fright. I would get so nervous my voice would shake, my knees would shake. I couldn’t sing the way I knew I could. I’d sing here and there — a wedding ceremony — and get pretty discouraged about it. Just the whole experience of performing was excruciating. I just felt I wasn’t doing a good job because I was so nervous. I didn’t play for a long time and that

I play house concerts; I play listening venues. I do play other venues as well, it’s just that some are more conducive to the style of music I do. I prepare for the type of venue it is. If I’m going to play a little wine bar or the type of venue that has dinner or something like that, I know that I’m providing atmosphere for people; they’re not going to be solely focused on me, which is totally fine. You want your music interesting enough melodically so the listener can enjoy the melody if they’re not totally focused on the song. What is it with you and words — the word “comfort” in particular?

I love words. I collect words. I love the meter of them, the double entendre. I love grammar and figures of speech. When we were looking for a title for the CD, that word came up for each of the songs. It seemed like each song brought comfort in its own way. It just seemed appropriate Lyrically or melodically? How do you write?

When I write music, I will hear a sound, a chord, something. And I will be inspired by that sound to write a thing. When I write a thing, whether it’s a lyric or a little piece of a melody, then I’m looking for the sound I hear in my head. Do you have studio fright?

Initially yeah, but now after I’ve done it a few times, I can sit back and listen. What’s something you’ll never do?

I’ll never do heavy metal. But I do like rock music. I suppose I could have gone that direction a long time ago.

JAZZ | RITUAL TRIO WITH DAVID MURRAY

ROCK | THE KENNEDYS

Saxophonist David Murray is among the greatest improvisers in jazz today. When he joins master percussionist Kahil El’Zabar and top Chicago bassist Harrison Bankhead in the Ritual Trio, the chemistry should be explosive in the most positive sense of the word. A founding member of the World Saxophone Quartet, Murray has played with a “Who’s Who” of jazz greats and singers ranging from Cassandra Wilson to Macy Gray. Better get your ticket early for this one.

  When Maura and Pete Kennedy decided to go out on a first date, she was in Texas and he was in Colorado, so they had to meet half way. The midway point was in Lubbock, Texas, where Buddy Holly is buried — the now-married couple’s date was at Holly’s gravesite. While that initial meeting might sound creepy, The Kennedy’s music is much less so. The pair borrows from Celtic and Appalachian traditions and blends inspiration from 1960’s folk-rock bands like The Byrds. The result is pleasant and cool.

The Ritual Trio with David Murray performs Monday, December 5, at Bop Shop Records, 1460 Monroe Avenue. 8 p.m. $20 advance; $25 at the door. 271-3354; bopshop. com; kahilelzabar.net. — BY RON NETSKY Having a party? Let us cater it! 325-5600. themontagemusichall. com. 7:30 p.m. $10-$15.

There’s much to be said about the disappearing scientific element of making art and the stalwart enthusiasts keeping it alive. Chemistry and creativity have strolled hand-in-hand throughout human history, but just as the majority of painters stopped grinding their own minerals when they could buy any ready-made hue, most photographers’ understanding of chemistry and calculations faded with the onset of digital tech. But analog vernacular is alive and well in some corners. The current show at the Genesee Center’s Community Darkroom Galleries spotlights the darkroom work of three photographers — Chris Holmquist, Jonathan Merritt, and Mark J. Watts. Despite having embraced digital photography, their fondness for older modes of making helps keep those practices alive. “Under Safelight” draws its title from a bit of old-school photography jargon. It refers to the filtered light that lets photographers see what they are doing in the darkroom, without exposing their work to damaging rays. The title evokes the elusive image of a solitary photographer-scientist tinkering with chemicals, with only a soft red glow pushing at the enveloping shadows.

The smallish, meditative work represented in the show speaks of the romantic apprehension of pursuing an effect, with no guarantee the experiment will yield the desired outcome. It’s the difference between knowing how to drive and knowing your engine through and through. No doubt that strictly-digital photographers achieve artfulness, but the thrill of the darkroom is about knowing how to make those effects by hand, and at the expert level, to individualize the formula toward limitless potentials. In his statement, Holmquist points out that “using a darkroom today is a choice, and no longer a necessity as it was for the first 160 years of photography. Nowadays, those who do it have different reasons than image makers of yore, and often those reasons are hard to articulate.” For Holmquist, the pursuit of old processes is as much “about collecting old darkroom paraphernalia as it is about making gorgeous prints on silver-gelatin papers … and its as much about reading antiquated books or old patents as it is about taking a really great photograph,” he says. “Making photographic prints with chemical technology turns out to be a remarkably multidisciplinary affair.” His work, on display in the Sunken Room, varies greatly in subject matter. There are the motion studies of “Pow Wow,” a tiny portrait of a Native American dancing, and “The Goat,” in which the shaggy bulk of the beast is barely contained within the tight shot. His quiet still life, “A Moment on the Porcelain,” depicts the elegant splay of a houseplant catching slanted light on the back of a toilet. Holmquist shakes up his silver gelatin prints with “The Back, Back Yard (of Nathan Lyons’ Old Studio),” a series of five Polaroid Polacolor prints that together form a broken panorama of tangled flora that dwarfs the

modest buildings beyond. In its gentle spectrum of hues with colorful rays jetting through the greenery, the work stands out as the most colorful in the show’s sea of grayscale images. You can achieve something akin to these dreamy images by using digital filters, but those severely limit the individual nuances you’d be able to get. And by doing it the old school way, you learn how it’s done. Mark J. Watts compares silver gelatin prints made in a darkroom to other analog technologies, such as vinyl records. “Many people say that vinyl records sound ‘warmer’ compared with digital files, I feel that darkroom prints look ‘richer’ compared to their digital counterparts,” he says. Here, Watts shows two distinct bodies of work in silver gelatin: “From Water” and “Men with Dogs.” The former group includes 11 small studies of environments in flux. His statement says he aims to frame “change brought to the landscape by water, erosion, and time.” By shooting not from the shore but from the perspective of the water, looking at banks and bordering buildings, he forms portraits of bodies-in-motion glancing back at damage done. Watts says the impetus for his “Men with Dogs” series is to provide the subjects and their families with an heirloom print. The images strike a balance between formal portrait, focusing on the bond between each pair, and casual in their outdoor settings, with the backdrops of yards, woods, and the backs of houses. Jonathan Merritt’s work is about stripping a specific scene down to a near abstraction, and distilling his momentary apprehension of its essence. He does this by going out to shoot at sleepy hours, when the heaviest presence is atmosphere and the light of streetlamps. “When you wander the confluence of urban and suburban, it’s difficult to notice the details when the world is so loud and busy,” Merritt writes in his provided statement. “But at night, it’s a different story. With the slow, careful and meditative quality of camera in hand, I explore this territory in that cool, solitary quiet. Through his smart cropping of specific plays of light and shadow, familiar settings and objects become slightly surreal. Cracked sidewalks or still black puddles reflecting nearly nothing — white noise on a day-to-day basis — become the subject. Gritty urban corners are cleansed by sharp chiaroscuro, but the graphic quality of this geometric shadow play is wonderfully complicated by the texture of street debris, clouds, or a field of perfect raindrops upon car hoods. Through Merritt’s eyes, these scenes feel like fresh, undiscovered territory.

LITERATURE | “READ LOCAL”: ARACELIS GIRMAY In September, local literary organizations kicked off a new “Read Local” series of featured author events, presenting opportunities for local businesses to collaborate while supporting home-grown literature. Each event is held in a bar, where attendees are encourage to meet and talk with the author over a drink. The informal nature of the series aims to foster a closer community in Rochester, organizers say. The second installment of the series will take place on Saturday, December 3, featuring award-winning, Massachusetts-based author Aracelis Girmay. She will present her newest collection of poetry, “the black maria.” Published by BOA Editions earlier this year, Girmay’s verses explore African diasporic histories (Girmay is of Eritrean, Puerto Rican, and African-American lineage), the consequences of racism in America, and the concepts of loss, transformation, and identity. Girmay will host a poetry master class at Writers & Books (740 University Avenue) at 10 a.m. The cost to participate is $77 ($60 for W&B members, registration is recommended). Later in the day at 6 p.m., she will give a reading of her work at Three Heads Brewing (186 Atlantic Avenue), which is free and open to the public.

THEATER | “A CHRISTMAS CAROL” Needless to say, Geva Theatre Center’s production of “A Christmas Carol” has become a Rochester holiday tradition for many families, for the theater, and for the actors themselves. The current adaptation — by Artistic Director Mark Cuddy, with music and lyrics by Gregg Coffin — premiered in 2010, and continues to draw large crowds every season. It’s easy to see why: Geva keeps a high bar for this production, and Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, and Tiny Tim have become forever ingrained in our Christmas culture. Several actors are back in past roles, including Guy Paul as Scrooge, Remi Sandri as the Ghost of Jacob Marley, and Joel Blum as Mr. Fezziwig and the Ghost of Christmas Present — and numerous local young actors will make their Geva debut. Directed by Mark Cuddy. “A Christmas Carol” is now on stage at Geva Theatre Center (75 Woodbury Boulevard) through Saturday, December 24. Tickets start at $25.

ART | FEMINIST FIBER ART GALLERY Feminist Fiber Art, a traveling art exhibit curated by Rochester-based artist Iris Nectar, hosts shows, craft workshops, performances, and concerts in DIY spaces with a mission to show how feminists use fiber art to “subvert its history as ‘women’s work’ in colorful, fun, and sexually liberated ways.” For its third formal gallery exhibit, Feminist Fiber Art will fill The Yards’ space with work from American and international artists — including Canadians Emily Hiller and Michelle Gauthier, Icelandic artist Yrurari, and Lhama, who’s based in Brazil. The inclusive project will continue to travel around the country and the world to collaborate with artists from all backgrounds. Feminist Fiber Art hosts its opening event on Friday, December 2, 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., at The Yards, 50-52 Public Market.

Sense and sensuality “The Handmaiden”

twisted tale mixing eroticism, romance, and dark comedy with flashes of Chan-wook’s (NR), DIRECTED BY PARK CHAN-WOOK characteristically graphic violence. The result OPENS FRIDAY, DECEMBER 2, AT THE LITTLE is absolutely bonkers — which also makes THEATRE it one of the most out and out entertaining films this year. [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW Adapted from the 2002 novel “Fingersmith” by British novelist Sarah Waters (with the story Appearances can be deceiving. In “The transplanted from Victorian-era England to Handmaiden” that platitude holds true both for 1930’s Korea during the Japanese occupation), its story’s duplicitous characters and also for the “The Handmaiden” follows wily pickpocket film itself. At first glance, the latest movie from Sook-hee (newcomer Kim Tae-ri). Raised South Korean auteur Park Chan-wook appears by a Dickensian den of orphans and thieves, to be a lush, ornately embellished period Sook-hee is recruited by Count Fujiwara (Ha romance, but behind that somewhat staid first Jung-woo) to assist in a long con in which she’ll impression is the heart of … well, of a Park become a handmaiden to Lady Hideko (Kim Chan-wook movie. Min-hee), a wealthy Japanese heiress living Nominated for the Palme d’Or at Cannes in a sprawling country estate with her uncle, this year, “The Handmaiden” is a luridly Kouzuki (Cho Jin-woong). Sook-hee’s task is to manipulate Hideko into falling for, and eventually marry, the dashing (in his own mind at least) Fujiwara, who’ll be passing himself off as Japanese nobility. Once they’ve married, Fujiwara will have Hideko committed to a madhouse, leaving Ha Jung-woo and Kim Min-hee in “The Handmaiden.” PHOTO COURTESY MAGNOLIA PICTURES the devious pair to

make off with the woman’s fortune. But a major kink (the first of many) is thrown into the plan when Sook-hee finds herself falling in love with the fragile heiress. What follows is a twisting tale of shifting alliances, manipulation, and betrayal, in which love clashes with power and control. The film is split into three distinct sections, folding in on itself to present certain events from a different character’s point of view, and offering us a deeper understanding of each of the four main characters. The movie is nothing if not elegantly constructed. It’s soon apparent that Hideko is under the thumb of her sadistic uncle, who has her perform staged readings of erotica — complete with wooden mannequin to use for demonstrative purposes — for audiences of drooling men. But Sook-hee and Hideko find a respite in each other from the men who seek to oppress them. In some ways, it seems as though when the women finally embrace their true desires and fall in bed together, they’re reclaiming for themselves acts that were previously meant only for the pleasure of men. Throughout the film, the women are very much in control of the narrative, though the exploration of how the two women find their liberation is occasionally at odds with the way Chan-wook’s camera takes on a distinctly male gaze as it offers the best perspectives to view the prolonged bouts of graphic lovemaking. Park Chan-wook made his English-language debut in 2013 with the underrated gothic thriller “Stoker,” but he is best known for his

brutal “Vengeance” trilogy (“Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance,” “Oldboy,” and “Lady Vengeance”). As demonstrated in those, the filmmaker is a master at maintaining control over his films’ slippery sense of tone, using it to upend his audience’s every expectation. “The Handmaiden’s” themes of identity and power are underlined in the use of subtitles, which shift between two colors depending on whether the character is speaking Korean or Japanese. That distinction becomes a critical detail based on who the characters are pretending to be at that specific moment, as well as when and to whom they choose to speak each language. Chan-wook also explores the way in which beautiful facades can hide untold depths of depravity. In keeping with that idea, the film is a feast for the eyes thanks to cinematographer Chung Chung-hoon, lavish production design from Ryu Seong Hie, and sumptuous period costumes by Jo Sang Gyeong. This is a film that definitely benefits from being seen on the big screen. A seductive, sensual delight, “The Handmaiden” is just the right mix of cerebral and smutty. Beneath all the sex and plot twists is an ardently felt love story, one that keeps unfurling to reveal new and unexpected depths.

But it is still possible to find an affordable house in the South Wedge. Witness 126 Gregory Street, about halfway between South and Mt. Hope Avenues. This end of Gregory is lined with stately Victorians, small workers cottages, and handsome storefronts. Tucked behind a tall hedge is this two-story Greek Revival style home built in 1860. At 1,262 square feet, 126 Gregory feels large and open with broad windows, hardwood floors throughout the first floor – including the kitchen – and a wide arch that opens the living room to the dining room. The kitchen is massive, especially for the period. Lovelybuilt in cabinets, many of which are glassfronted, provide tons of storage. Butcher block countertops and a gas range make this a cook’s delight. A new full bath with shower is tucked off the kitchen. Despite its unusual floor plan, the second floor has delightful spaces.

new owner will retain the amazing wall art in the nursery, which connects to the master bedroom. If not needed as a nursery, the room will make a fine den or huge walk-in closet. A second full bath with clawfoot tub is adjacent. A large third room is on the other side of the bath. A pull-down ladder leads to a small attic crawl space. The yard is narrow and deep, accessed by a shared driveway with parking for one car. The garden has good bones and promises a spring show of tulips. The partially fenced backyard includes a shed and a large playhouse. The house appears to be well maintained: a tearoff roof in 2001, new furnace and air conditioner in 1996. Yet there is always work to do in a house and, fortunately for the new owner, this home is included in the South Wedge Historic District listing in the National Register of Historic Places. This enables the homeowner to apply for tax credits to help offset the costs of home repairs and upgrades. 126 Gregory Street is listed for $84,000, way below most South Wedge properties. Listing agent Colleen Mason of Keller Williams can be reached at 585-739-8227. by Elizabeth Teall Elizabeth is a Landmark Society volunteer.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD

Future of Travel

Australian aviator David Mayman has promised investors that his personal jet packs will hit the market by mid-2017, though early adopters will pay about $250,000 for one, to fly a person at up to 60 mph for 10 minutes. The JB-10 (developed by Mayman and designer Nelson Tyler) has made about 400 test runs in Monaco and over downtown London and New York City, but the partners realize that ultimate success will require that the fuel tanks be downsized so that the craft can be powered electrically — and thus seek crowdfunding both for that model and a larger one to accommodate the Pentagon’s (Special Operations Command) tactical needs.

The Continuing Crisis

Wild Life: The state agency Colorado Parks and Wildlife filed 21 criminal charges in October against the Squirrel Creek Wildlife Rescue center in Littleton, alleging that some of the orphaned and rehabbing animals Kendall Seifert houses are not being kept according to the state’s strict standards — and that Seifert’s 15-year-old center is also home to his popular swingers’ club (Scarlet Ranch) featuring weekend sex parties. One of the criminal charges suggests that rescue animals could be stressed by gazing at activity in the ranch’s bar area. Seifert said he will challenge the charges out of fear that many of the raccoons, foxes, song birds, coyotes, skunks, rabbits and squirrels he would have to relinquish would not find suitable facilities elsewhere. In St. Paul, Minnesota, a 25-year-old woman told police on Nov. 3 that she was involuntarily roughed up several hours after being voluntarily roughed up at Arnellia’s

Bar’s weekly “Smack Fest” — in which female patrons competitively slap each other’s faces for three “rounds” under strict house rules. The woman said she spoke amicably with her opponent, but by closing time, the opponent and several friends, including men, punched and kicked her outside the bar. (In other slapping news, a 71-year-old woman died in Lewes, England, in November while participating in a Chinese healing seminar that emphasizes being slapped repeatedly to rid the body of poisoned blood and toxins. The “healer,” Hongshi Xiao, charges clients around $900 to beat what he calls the “sha” out of them.) Episode Almost Ended in a Tie: In November, in a remote area of Oregon’s Maury Mountains, a 69-year-old man killed an elk and dragged the carcass behind his off-road vehicle up a hill. According to the Crook County Sheriff’s office, the vehicle suddenly flipped over backward, and the man landed on, and was impaled by, the elk’s antlers. Fellow hunters summoned a helicopter, and the man has apparently survived.

The Entrepreneurial Spirit

(1) In a retail market long dominated by priests, “nonsectarian” funeral eulogizers now offer to give individually tailored remembrances of the deceased for a fee, according to an October report by a New York Post reporter who interviewed two local “celebrants,” who cited the declining appeal of “prayers.” (2) The British retailer ASOS announced in August that 3-foot-long clipon dinosaur tails had sold out in one of its two models (although New York magazine, which reported it in the U.S., was, for obvious reasons, baffled about why).

[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 27 ]

[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Party on, and plan to have fun. Don’t let someone who wants to tie you down interfere. If you can’t play together, what’s the point of staying together. Take the test and see who joins in your next adventure. Set a high relationship standard. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): If someone touches you emotionally, mentally and physically, don’t sit back hoping he or she will make the first move. Get involved in activities and events, and see how well you get along. Give love a chance to grow into something special and long-lasting.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Keep moving upward and onward. If someone who has shown interest in you cannot keep up, don’t worry about it. Strive to reach your goals; when you do, look around and see who has matched your courage, vigor and intellectual achievements every step of the way. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Let go of whatever isn’t working in your life and try something new, and you will encounter people who interest you. Share an experience with someone you feel an attraction to, and it will lead you in a direction you never considered in the past.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ll be difficult to keep up with, but you can bet someone will. Changing how you approach love and life will mark a new beginning for the way you choose a partner. Engage in the challenges and adventures that entice you, and someone extraordinary will catch your eye. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Bypass anyone trying to coax you into something you don’t want to do, and refuse to let someone put added responsibilities on you that will make you forego playtime. Make plans to do something you enjoy, and someone special will capture your attention. The rest is up to you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t sit still. Get out and do things that energize you. Cultural events will give you a diverse look at lifestyles that you find appealing. You will find an intelligent discussion with someone quite different from you enchanting. Don’t dismiss the romantic possibilities that exist. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Never say never when it comes to love. Reach out to someone you find unique and intriguing, and you will uncover a world you never knew existed. Exploring new possibilities when it comes to romance will move you one step closer to a commitment.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your unpredictable nature will keep whoever tries to capture your heart guessing. Enjoy your freedom, and hold out until you meet someone who is just as changeable as you. The more diverse a partner you can find, the more fascinated and charmed you will become. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Just when you think you have found the love of your life, you will find something you aren’t sure you like about the person. Don’t settle because you are tired of dating. Romance is highlighted. Keep searching, and the right partner will waltz into your life.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t let someone who hurt you in the past have a second chance. Secret affairs and too much baggage will stand between you and your happiness. Discover who you are and what you want instead of letting someone dictate how you should live your life. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll attract partners due to your ability to be whatever someone wants you to be, but if you really want a relationship to last, you have to come clean and be yourself. If someone doesn’t like who you are, you probably shouldn’t be with him or her.
