Seven dime bags of marijuana hardly seem worth the effort (“Accusations traded over police altercation,” September 28), but as long as
it is illegal, the police must enforce the law. The reform of marijuana laws is not big on my list of priorities, but it seems that it would be important to move part of this discussion to state legislators. I would guess that there are many, many grams and dime bags of marijuana sold on the patios of Pittsford, in the garages of Gates, and in the back yards of Brighton, but those youth seem to be exempt from these laws.

Too few black applicants
I will not argue a single point of this article (“Black teachers matter,” September 21), but it misses one CRITICAL fact: If the Rochester City School District hired every single person of color who applied for a teaching position in our city, we STILL would not have enough black teachers. In a school district where black students form the single largest racial group, very few of them return to our district to teach. DAMON DIEHL

interdependent. When kids go to school in a city or neighborhood that doesn’t reflect who they are, or does not bring joy, then where is the motivation to learn and give back to the community? When we watch protests on TV and people are ransacking their own neighborhoods, we ask why. It is because they do not feel that it belongs to them. The design of Rochester currently caters too heavily to people passing through by car, either to work, shop, or dine. So, investing in a riverfront will provide a destination for city residents and a hub around which local pride will grow. The city has also started making great strides in bicycle infrastructure (for an American city, anyway). Check out Lake Avenue, Chestnut Street, Court Street, and the new bike parking and corrals that have begun to pop up around the city. It is a good start, and it can only improve. As for transit, I definitely agree that the route layout needs optimizing. More crosstown options and higher frequencies need to be available. Investment in transit, including streetcars and circulators, will help residents and visitors from different walks of life get a better Rochester experience. Deadly roads like Lake Avenue are primed to become transit corridors; imagine a streetcar that takes you from downtown out to the lakeshore and back, with plenty of stops in between. We can’t just throw money at schools and ignore the environment around them. By making the city more pleasant and safe through the built environment, I think people will be all the more inspired to invest in education and give back to challenged communities. NICK R.

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
Chris Lindley’s legacy: government at its best Rochester has lost an example of public service at its finest with the death of Chris Lindley, former City Council member and deputy mayor. Chris, whose long battle with heart disease ended on Friday, was an ethical, highly principled person. And he offers a stark contrast to many people in politics today. In his private life, Chris was a cook, self-taught home repairman, world traveler, terrific conversationalist, ardent tennis player, and exceptionally thoughtful friend. He and his wife Bettie have been proud, longtime residents of the city’s 19th Ward, and he was devoted to the YMCA and the Presbyterian Home. He was a loving father and grandfather – “a gentle person,” says one of his two sons, Joel. “I wasn’t an easy teenager, and my dad was very patient.” He was almost intimidatingly smart. And he came by that – and by his interest in politics and government – naturally. His father, Ernest Kidder Lindley, was a Rhodes scholar who became a respected Washington Post and Newsweek columnist and biographer of Franklin Roosevelt. Chris’s parents and the Roosevelts were friends, and Chris’s childhood experience included a dinner at the White House. But that childhood didn’t include a close relationship with his parents, his sons Stephen and Joel say. He was raised by a black woman servant, and his relationship with her and other black servants seems to have shaped his passion about civil rights. He was “on the right side of justice,” says Joel, “in almost everything that came up.” He went to Cornell, earned bachelor’s and doctor’s degrees in history, and became a professor at the University of Rochester. He invited Malcolm X to speak at the UR – not because he agreed or disagreed with him, says Joel: “He just wanted to hear his opinions,” and he wanted students to hear them. He stayed at the UR for seven years, but then must have found academia confining, Steve Lindley thinks; “You can’t be confined when there’s so much going on out there – the Civil Rights movement, the Vietnam War.” He participated in Martin Luther King’s March on Washington. He marched in Selma. And he threw himself into serving the adopted city he loved. Part of a reform movement that wrested control of the Monroe County Democratic Party in the late 1960’s, he served on City Council for 12 years and later as deputy mayor under Tom Ryan for five.
Curious, intensely ethical, and almost intimidatingly smart, Lindley went into politics to serve the community, not himself.
“If he had been motivated by money,” says Steve, “he would have gone to law school and been a litigator.” Instead, he chose public service, to serve the community, not himself. And in it, he was doggedly ethical. “He cared about making the world a better place,” Joel says. He didn’t glad-hand and massage people or base his Council votes on what would win elections, says Steve. If he had, “it would have been interesting to see how far he could have gone.” Instead, his heart was in good government, in what makes a city strong. And he relished seeking opinions and advice from urban development experts, architects, policy specialists. He didn’t hesitate to tell you where he stood on things, and he could be sarcastic. But, says Joel, “if he disagreed with you, it wasn’t personal.” “There was not an ounce of venality in him,” says Steve. Chris loved to entertain, loved having dinner parties, loved cooking for the dinner parties, loved getting people together to share opinions and discuss current issues. He and Bettie continued to do that this summer, despite his clearly failing health. He seemed to meet that decline almost matter-of-factly, and I suspect he didn’t care much about having a public legacy. But for many of us, he has one: This deeply ethical person showed that it is possible for people to go into politics for the right reasons. And do the right things. Right now, it’s awfully good to have that example. rochestercitynewspaper.com

RPD to engage community
Tension between the Rochester Police Department and many in the black community has led Mayor Lovely Warren to announce the “90 days of Community Engagement” initiative. Police leaders will seek out public input, and a strengthened Civilian Review Board has been proposed. Warren has also called for the creation of a strategic plan to improve police-community relations.

Monroe County is in significant fiscal stress, says the State Comptroller’s Office. Each year, the office reviews financial, social, economic, and demographic factors in municipalities and counties across the state. This is Monroe’s third consecutive year on the list.
Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren has chosen the Cambridge company Zagster to operate a public bike share program downtown. The pick is subject to City Council approval. The first phase of the program, which would kick off next spring, would consist of about 25 stations and 250 bikes.

Richard Leon Wilbern was arrested in the 2003 Xerox credit union robbery, during which Raymond Batzel was fatally shot and Joseph Doud was shot and injured. Wilbern was arraigned in federal court on robbery and homicide charges. He was charged after FBI agents received a tip from a former co-worker who recognized Wilbern from a widely circulated photo.
The Town of Pittsford is fighting back against the mysterious person or people leaving flyers that promote white supremacy around town. The flyers direct people to a website purportedly run by “White Rochester.” A group called PittsFORWARD has formed in response. Group members held a unity walk last weekend.
Former Rochester school board member Melisza Campos has been named the 2016-17 Frederick H. Minett professor at Rochester Institute of Technology. Campos will work with RIT’s Women of Color, Honor and Ambition program as a mentor and career coach.
Gallina Development unveiled its plan for the Parcel 5 site at Midtown in downtown Rochester last week. Gallina and partner Patrick Dutton, a local real estate developer and broker, propose a 14-story, mixed-use tower with condos, restaurants, retail, and street-level entertainment space.
Gallina’s pitch for Parcel 5 is a 14-story tower with housing, restaurants, and retail. An urban park is also part of the plan, which should make people who want a green space in the center of downtown happy. IMAGE PROVIDED BY GALLINA DEVELOPMENT
Office space would take up floors two to four of the tower, while 31 market-rate condos would be located on floors five to 14. And there would be a two-story underground parking garage for more than 175 vehicles. More amenities: a plaza, outdoor patios and outdoor terraces for the restaurants and entertainment venues, and a rooftop pool. An open area that Gallina refers to as an “urban park” is also part of the plan. Gallina says that it would work with “community partners” on programming for the park. The Gallina-Dutton proposal is one of four that the City of Rochester received for Parcel 5 — a prime piece of real estate in the heart of downtown. Other proposals include a new performing arts center for the Rochester Broadway Theatre League.
The theater had been talked about in concert with a casino to be run by the Seneca Nation of Indians, but a casino proposal never materialized. The nonprofit Rochester Visionary Square submitted a proposal to use Parcel 5 for public green space available for year-round programming. The land has been used for the Jazz Fest and the Fringe Fest. The public space would take up most of the land, but there would also be room for retail and other services. Gallina Development is currently remaking the former Chase Tower at the corner of Main Street and South Clinton downtown for offices and retail. The building’s new name is The Metropolitan. Dutton’s recent projects include the Geva Lofts, Capron Street Lofts, and Apogee Wine Bar.

Once completed, the 1,172-mile Dakota Access Pipeline would carry around 470,000 barrels of crude oil from the Bakken Shale formation in North Dakota to a shipping hub in Patoka, Illinois. The pipeline would come within a half-mile of the Standing Rock reservation.
ENVIRONMENT | BY JEREMY MOULE
Rochesterians stand with the Sioux Around 1,500 miles separate Rochester and the Standing Rock Sioux encampment meant to block construction of a section of the Dakota Access oil pipeline near the nation’s North Dakota reservation. But the distance isn’t stopping Rochesterians from joining the fight. They’ve organized events, such as last Saturday’s Water for Life rally, to draw attention to the pipeline and to urge people to advocate against it. And local pipeline opponents, including Luc Watelet and Lisa Giudici, traveled to North Dakota to join the protest. “It’s time that governments and corporations hear the voice of the people who are concerned about what’s going on, instead of imposing their will on them,” Watelet says. The Seneca Nation of Indians and the Tonawanda Seneca Nation of the Haudenosaunee sent letters of support to the Standing Rock Sioux, emphasizing the nation’s fight to protect the earth. The Standing Rock reservation was established in an 1868 treaty with the US government. Once completed, the 1,172-mile Dakota Access Pipeline would carry around 470,000 barrels of crude oil from the Bakken Shale formation in North Dakota to a shipping hub in Patoka, Illinois. The
pipeline would come within a half-mile of the Standing Rock reservation. Dave Archambault II, chair of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, says that the pipeline project has destroyed Lakota and Dakota burial sites — a charge denied by Energy Transfer, the company building the pipeline. The tribe also says that federal agencies failed to adequately consult with the Standing Rock nation before approving the pipeline. For the Standing Rock Sioux, the fight is also about protecting the Missouri River, which provides water for the reservation as well as for wildlife and millions of other people in the pipeline’s path. The Sioux worry that the pipeline will leak or spill and poison the water. “The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe are fighting for our lives, our people, and our sacred places,” Archambault says. Local environmental and climate activists see parallels between the Standing Rock nation’s struggle and their battles against fossil fuel pipelines, storage facilities, and power plants in New York. The projects threaten communities’ air and water, and in the past the state has approved them despite substantial opposition, they say.

Any pipeline project takes the country in the wrong direction on climate change, and on the country’s commitment to the rest of the world to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the local groups say. And the Dakota Access Pipeline will transport Bakken oil, the same volatile crude that passes through Rochester on trains, from wells in North Dakota to Chicago. When the trains derail – which they do with troubling frequency – they tend to burst into flames. “We are talking about the same oil, the same risks,” says Sue Hughes-Smith, who heads a Mothers Out Front committee that’s pushing federal elected representatives for a ban on oil trains.
Power plant sold The complex network of industrial utilities inside Eastman Business Park is getting a new owner, again. And the buyers will pay to retrofit the park’s power plant with highefficiency natural gas boilers, replacing its coal-fired ones. Recycled Energy Development reached a deal to sell its portfolio of site-specific power and utility systems – which includes the Eastman Business Park facilities – to Ironclad Energy Partners. The sale needs the State Public Service Commission’s approval. When Recycled Energy Development bought the business park’s utilities system in 2013, it was a big deal. Kodak had begun opening the park up to outside tenants, and the utilities systems are attractive. Inexpensive power and industrial water treatment capabilities are among the draws. But the systems – the power plant especially -- needed upgrades and Kodak was trudging through bankruptcy, so it wasn’t in a position to make the investments. RED didn’t just buy the utilities; it spent $30 million updating them. The company needed additional funding to carry out the power plant conversion, however. Ironclad was working with RED on that funding, and the purchase grew out of those talks. The new owner has promised to put up the financing for the upgrades, which carry an estimated $75 million cost, according to a filing with the PSC.

Don’t forget about these guys Third-party candidates are in a weird spot. They’re blamed for “siphoning” votes from the major parties and possibly altering an election — Bush-Gore-Nader comes to mind. But people who vote for a third-party candidate are often told they’re throwing their votes away. This utterly peculiar presidential election is yielding a common complaint: “Why do I have to vote for one of these two ____?” The answer is: You don’t. There are other people in the race
Gary Johnson and the free market
Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson believes climate change is caused by people. He also believes a free-market economy is part of the fix. And he cites an Environmental Protection Agency statistic that says the US is responsible for 16 percent of the carbon load worldwide. “Carbon does not know any boundaries,” Johnson says. But he also says the practice of burning coal and building more coal facilities is “not happening from a free market standpoint.” And that natural gas is taking coal’s place thanks to the free market. Johnson, former governor of New Mexico, is running with former Massachusetts governor Bill Weld on the third-party ticket. The campaign gained attention after 6 CITY

besides Clinton and Trump. Gary Johnson, the former governor of New Mexico, is running on the Libertarian ticket with former Massachusetts governor Bill Weld. And Dr. Jill Stein is running on the Green Party ticket with Ajamu Baraka, a human rights activist, as her running mate. Below are profiles of Johnson and Stein, who are the only two third-party presidential candidates on the ballot in New York.
Bernie Sanders lost to Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary. Johnson says some of this attention reflects the fact that the Libertarian ticket consists of two former two-term Republican governors elected in heavily Democratic states, who are “fiscally conservative, socially inclusive, and skeptical that military intervention will result in a safer world,” combined with the polarity generated by Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. That attention has also generated more interest in the Libertarian Party, and Libertarian voter registration has skyrocketed, “relatively,” Johnson says. When asked about what his campaign could take away from Sanders’ run for office, Johnson says he agrees with most of what Sanders has to say, but that he and Sanders part ways on the economy. “I agree with Bernie that crony capitalism
is alive and well, and that the system is rigged,” Johnson says, but “free markets are not crony capitalism.” Crony capitalism is when the government involves itself in business and allows for favoritism, he says. Can government end income inequality? Johnson says “that’s Peter taking from Paul.” In keeping with his Libertarian platform, Johnson says he and Weld are in favor of the controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement because it will create US jobs and eliminate a lot of tariffs and advance free trade. Johnson says he wants more government transparency, and that he has not taken any campaign money from the Koch brothers that he “knows of.” “I do believe that an individual should be able to make unlimited contributions, but it should be 100 percent transparent and there is
no transparency on Super PAC’s,” he says. Johnson made headlines and not in a good way last week when MSNBC’s Chris Matthews asked him to name a foreign leader he admires and Johnson struggled. He said he was having a “brain freeze.” Johnson ran for president in 2012 and got less than 1 percent of the vote.
Jill Stein calls for change
A physician and environmental-health advocate, Dr. Jill Stein was the Green Party’s 2012 presidential candidate and is running this time with human rights activist Ajamu Baraka as her VP pick. Stein has as much to say about American politics as she does about her Power to the People Plan: A Green New Deal, which calls for transitioning to 100-percent clean and renewable energy by 2030 and investing in public transit, sustainable agriculture, and conservation, which she says would create jobs. Stein says she’s in the Green Party because the other two parties are “under the thumb of war profiteers, predatory banks, and fossil fuel pirates.” She says she wants to mobilize the 43 million students and young people burdened by student debt, calling this group “a self-organizing demographic” through mechanisms such as social media. One element of her platform is to cancel education debt for those students. “It’s a no-brainer,” Stein says, pointing out that the same was done for the banks. Health care, education, jobs, and housing are all rights, Stein says, calling for “Medicare For All” single-payer public health insurance program, an end to high-stakes testing, a $15 minimum wage, and housing that benefits the public good. Renovating and restoring housing also creates jobs, she says. Stein also calls for making war over oil obsolete, a carbon tax, public ownership of energy production, and a transition to renewable fuels. Greening the energy system also avoids the health consequences of fossil fuels, she says, and the catastrophe that is climate change makes “Pearl Harbor look like small potatoes.” Barack Obama “put his troops on the shelf after he was elected,” Stein says, but she wants to use the “bully pulpit” that is the presidency to create “transformational change” and “turn the White House into a Green House in 2016.”

Film captures Ecuador’s politics
The Rochester Committee on Latin America and Nazareth College will present the documentary film “Moments of Campaign” about the 2013 Ecuadoran presidential campaign at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, October 5. The film examines the political life of Rafael Correa and his campaign to become president of Ecuador. The popular left-leaning politician is highly critical of the World Bank and declared Ecuador’s national debt illegitimate. Correa has won three presidential elections. The event will
be held at Nazareth’s Casa Hispana, 4245 East Avenue.
Penfield to celebrate town’s history
The Town of Penfield’s Historic Preservation Board will present “Historic Preservation Day” on Saturday, October 15. Town Historian Kathy Kanauer will provide information about Penfield’s historic homes. And experts will speak about preserving historic landmarks and restoring older homes and landscapes. The event is from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in the Town Hall auditorium, 3100 Atlantic Avenue.

Elevated without pretention [ CHOW HOUND ] BY KATIE LIBBY
When Joe Frocchi and Eric Aubriot set out to open their new restaurant, The Vesper (1 Capron Street), they wanted to find a way to create elevated food, but still keep it fun. Aubriot, a James Beard Rising Star Award nominee, moved to Rochester after running his own restaurant, also named Aubriot, in Chicago. Frocchi has worked in the Rochester food scene for years, including behind the bars at Tap and Table and West Edge. The Vesper is a gastropub and raw bar. According to Frocchi, you should feel as comfortable going there for date night as you would stopping in for a Genny and some chicken wings. Mild renovations were done to the space, which once housed Nikko, to warm things up — including a new bar top and eclectic decorations on the exposed-brick walls. Selections from the raw bar include oysters on the half shell (sold at market price) and ceviche served with corn and plantain chips
($10). If you’re feeling extra fancy, The Trust Fund ($48) is a Vesper martini, two oysters, two shrimp, ceviche, a half an ounce of caviar, and stuffed olives. The restaurant’s main courses run the gamut, from a bone marrow crusted 8-ounce filet ($29) to a classic American burger ($13). The Vesper Burger ($15) comes with seared foie gras, caramelized onions, and garlic mayo. Vegetarians will find corn fritters ($7) served with a garlic chili sauce, or the endive salad ($9) combining pear, frisee lettuce, goat cheese, and a port wine vinaigrette. The cocktail menu’s focus is on the classics, like the Tom Collins, the Sidecar, the Dark and Stormy. The Vesper ($10) is a take on the classic martini, using Ketel One, Plymouth, Lillet Blanc, and a lemon twist — shaken, not stirred. (Fun fact: The Vesper is James Bond’s iconic martini, named after Vesper Lynd, 007’s partner in “Casino Royale.”) The Vesper will start serving lunch the
second week in October with some carryover from the dinner menu but with mid-day options added. The Vesper is located at 1 Capron Street, and is open Monday through Saturday, 4 p.m. to 12 a.m. 415-2946; rocthevesper.com.
The Owl House (75 Marshall Street) will
host an Italian Wine Dinner on Monday, October 17, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Chef Nate Stahl will create a special menu to pair with five classic wines from Frederick Wildman Imports. The dinner is $65 per person (not including tax or gratuity), and reservations can be made by calling 360-2920 or at owlhouserochester.com. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options can be available with two days’ notice. Joe Bean Coffee Roasters (1344 University Avenue) will hold a Root Stock Cider tasting on Friday, October 7, as part of Cider Week FLX. Root Stock will be
providing samples from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., and Joe Bean’s kitchen will also be open from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friends in Good Taste will take place on Saturday, October 15, at Lovin’ Cup Bistro and Brews (300 Park Point Drive) from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. The event is presented by Friends of Strong and will feature beer and food pairing stations, live music by Alphonso Williams, and a silent auction. Tickets are $30 and all proceeds will benefit patient care. More information can be found at event.urmc.edu/smhbeer or 275-2420. Openings Tryon City Tavern has opened at 2300 East

[ DINING ROUND-UP ] BY KATHERINE STATHIS
Fall is fried cake season. That first snap of cold turns on a switch in Rochestarians, when nothing else will go with our apple cider than a homemade sweet that’s at once pillowy, hearty, crunchy, and full of nostalgia. Fried cakes are like the doughnut’s country cousin. While the standard yeast doughnut involves a rising before frying, the fried cake (or fry cake) keeps an inner density and uneven outer crust that harkens back to the olie-koeken tradition of our state’s Dutch settlers — and maybe even taps into a more innate urge to fatten up for the winter. The ingredients are simple: flour, sugar, eggs, butter, milk, and spices, and perhaps apple cider in place of water. All are mixed, shaped, and then finished in the fryer. But methods and styles vary from just one simple standard, and loyalty to a favorite may be held just as tightly as a baker’s “secret family recipe.” My own favorite has long passed: Hutteman’s fried cakes from Webster, which supplied area cider mills for decades, closed up shop in 1993. I’m sure I’m not the only local who still misses Hutteman’s chunky, rustic quality. But it is a big round world out there, so I set on a quest to find Rochester’s Holy Grail of local fried cakes. My research didn’t yield one ultimate fried cake, though. Instead, I found we have a number of them. While many places in Rochester make fried cakes, these seven truly stand out. Do you have a favorite fried cake? Let us know in the comments below this article online at rochestercitynewspaper.com. 10 CITY OCTOBER 5-11, 2016

Fried cakes are a sacred Rochester tradition. We went in search of the Holy Grail, but found seven instead. Duke’s Donuts

You can’t miss the signature orange tent at the Rochester Public Market, but it’s the scent of warm dough and cinnamon that’ll brings you in. For the past two years, Duke’s has set up a no-fuss stand with a singular purpose: fried cakes made fresh on the spot. Duke’s sources the apple cider for its cider fried cakes from Kirby’s Cider Mill in Albion, and it’s used in a recipe passed down from the original Duke, the grandfather-in-law of coowner Chad Longman. Duke would make fried cakes for family, but he dreamed of someday opening his own stand. Although Duke didn’t live to see this dream realized, his namesake and family custom have become a local sensation. These fried cakes have a subtle spiciness to them, and are served hot with a generous coating of cinnamon sugar. Staving off the temptation to devour them at once, however, will be rewarded when the sugar layer cures nicely to a fine shell. One now, and one later is the best strategy. Duke’s Donuts is located in the Rochester Public Market, 280 North Union Street, and is open Saturdays year-round and Thursdays seasonally. 716-262-9020.
Green Acre Farm and Nursery Janice Hassett is in her 13th season making fried cakes at Green Acre. She learned her technique from her mother, who had been making them at the family’s business since 1980. “It’s all in the timing,” Hassett says, describing the balance of a “nice crusty outside, delicious inside.” Green Acre’s fried cakes may seem more petite than others at first glance, but they feature only those best qualities and no excessive filler. The inside is just the right match of texture to round out each crusty bite. Hassett is also quick to point out that each fried cake has the caloric equivalent of three apples. More fried cake fun facts are posted at the shop to entertain the throngs as they await their turn at the treats, which are only available from mid-September through Halloween. Among the selection — plain, cinnamon sugar, powdered sugar, and frosted — glazed fried cakes are conspicuously absent: “They don’t need glaze,” Hassett says. And she’s right. Green Acre Farm and Nursery is located at 3456 Latta Road, and is open Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Friday through Sunday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. 227-0510; greenacrefarmandnursery.com.
McPherson Orchards & Christmas Tree Farm The winding, tree-lined Oatka Trail makes for a quintessential autumn drive to McPherson Orchards, which has been a mainstay for
apples since the mid-19th century, expanding through the years with cider and evergreens. The seventh generation of McPhersons opened the bakery in 2009, but it seems like it’s been there all along, cranking out apple pies, crisps, breads, and of course, fried cakes at a steady clip. Rather than grab a box and go, prepare to watch through the kitchen’s screen door as the fried cakes are made fresh to order. These little guys are served hot in a paper bag, sprinkled lightly with cinnamon sugar — or not, depending on preference — and are light in color and texture, with a soft cakey quality without the crunch or loaded heft of their counterparts. McPherson Orchards’ bakery is open on weekends only. McPherson Orchards and Christmas Tree Farm is located at 7971 Oatka Trail, and is open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The bakery is open on Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. 7687094; mcphersonorchards.com.
Powers Farm Market
In its 50 years of business, Powers Farm Market has grown from a roadside wagon sweet-corn stand to one of the area’s top destinations for all things fall. A sea of pumpkins leads to Powers’ towering teepees, inside which are tiers of leering hand-carved jack-o’-lanterns and spooky atmospherics to keep kids fascinated. Then there’s the petting zoo. And peacocks. And haunted hay rides running throughout the day and into the night. continues on page 12

All this stimulation is just occasion for the rush of Powers’ fried cakes, available in plain, cinnamon sugar, powdered sugar, glazed, pumpkin, chocolate, and sour cream. Powers featured Hutteman’s years ago, but now a special off-site baker keeps up with the everincreasing daily demand. These are dense, sweet, and moist — good fuel for the day’s action. Still, if it’s quiet you seek, a cozy sit at the hearth with a hot cider and fried cake is a fine option. Powers Farm Market is located at 161 Marsh Road, and is open Monday through Wednesday, 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.; Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.; and Sunday 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. 586-4631.
Pudgy Girl Bakery Hey, are you vegan? You want fried cakes? No problem. All you gotta do, see, is go Along with fried cakes, Powers Farm Market serves as one of the area’s top fall destinations. PHOTO BY MARK CHAMBERLIN in back of that storage building over there … In fact, that’s exactly it. For now, Pudgy Girl operates from a commercial kitchen inside the East Avenue Storage Building across from the Rochester Museum and Science Center. From there, self-proclaimed “baker/mad scientist” Jenny Johnson serves up cookies, brownies, cheesecakes, doughnuts, and other vegan goodies. Her cider fried cake is moist and spongey with that strong apple flavor. Granular sugar creates an outer candied effect, making this a pretty decadent treat. Johnson is seeking her own storefront location, but for now sells her products through vegan outlets such as Abundance Food Co-op, Balsam Bagels, Dogtown Hots, Lori’s Natural Foods, and Red Fern. Because they are best fresh, doughnut Schutt's Apple Mill in Webster has been making fried cakes for 23 years.

if not rather indefinable. If you know where the duo got its name, you’d know what I mean. The band formed in the early 1970’s as a sort of antithesis to rock. Members Walter Becker and Donald Fagen first pitched their sound in the Brill building, coming to the attention of Jay and the Americans and low-budget film work. The duo’s 1972 debut album, “Can’t Buy a Thrill,” solidified Steely Dan as a classic rock staple. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

quintets are all familiar entities on chamber music programs, but brass players seldom get their proper place at the chamber music table, and percussionists almost never do. The First Muse chamber music series shifts the paradigm this Sunday when it presents “re: Percussion and Brass” as the opening concert of its 2016-17 series. There won’t be a piano or a fiddle in sight — just hornist Peter Kurau, trumpeter Wesley Nance, and percussionists Christopher Jones and Drew Worden, which should be more than enough personnel for a musically virtuosic evening. — BY DAVID RAYMOND
Upward Groove. Temple
Burn It Up burns it down on “Toys,” the band’s new beaucoup bombastic blast of rock ‘n’ roll. I mean, holy shit, the energy on this 10-song album is berserk. The ska lurking within Burn It Up’s previous incarnation, Mrs. Skannotto, has shifted to the afterburner — not an afterthought — among the myriad layers of groove, drive, and trippy tone. “Toys” opens up with “101,” a rollicking carnival piece that creates car-swallowing craters with the thud of each downbeat, before deconstructing into a succinct, albeit chaotic, breakdown. The track “Affluenza” is a deliciously guitar-driven, hyper-fast dose of ska that pumps, bumps, and jumps like a pogo stick jackhammer. The production on the drums-in-space arrangement of “Heartbeat” is reminiscent of Van Halen (you heard me) before shifting into a kind of psychedelic dubstep. The horns are excellent and the most consistent character in the drama — and it’s the horns that keep the link between what this band was, is, and what it is becoming. But let’s not spend time over analyzing this recording. It’s exactly what you’d expect from this world-wise, road-weary band that Rochester is lucky enough to call its own. Done reading?

What New York City-based bluegrass trio The Vine Brothers lacks in volume, it makes up in tangible joy on its new eight-song outing, “No Candy.” That’s not to say they can’t raise hell, but the power of this band is in its subtlety and the air breathing between the notes. Bluegrass is the approach — mandolin, string bass, guitar, and three-part harmonies that often come off sounding like four — but the band is a little darker than your run of the mill, propped-on-a-porchpicking-and-grinning situation. And lemme tell ya, these cats can pick, boy. The guests are minimal on “No Candy,” and the album is bare-boned for the most part and sounds to be definitely recorded live with no fanfare or gizmos. Close your eyes and you can picture The Vine Brothers as the notes pour forth from a room whose embrace is almost like an instrument in and of itself. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

Mike "Cotton Toe" Scrivens goes beyond the blues on his fist CD, "Downtrodden Blues." PHOTO BY FRANK DE BLASE
Beyond the blues in alligator shoes Mike “Cotton Toe” Scrivens THURSDAY, OCTOBER 6 STICKY LIPS JUKE JOINT, 830 JEFFERSON RD. 6:30 P.M. | FREE | STICKYLIPSBBQ.COM; COTTON-TOE.BANDCAMP.COM [ FEATURE ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
Rochester bluesman Mike “Cotton Toe” Scrivens laughs at the rumors and scuttlebutt surrounding his nickname. As the story goes, Scrivens was minding his own affair, playing a solo gig on a riverboat near Gretna, Louisiana, when a 12-foot gator suddenly appeared on deck, snarling and snapping and thrashing about. Patrons were running every which way. Everyone was in a panic; everyone was screaming. Everyone except for Scrivens, who brandished his guitar and slowly forced the beast back toward the edge of the old
gambling vessel. As the reptilian intruder slid back into the water, it took one last swipe at Scrivens, and claimed the man’s shoe and his big toe. Scrivens has had to stuff his brogans in the spot where the toe once was ever since. Although he’s fairly new to the blues game, the nine-toed Scrivens is seasoned and steeped in a style of music he can’t resist. “I started playing the blues out about four or five years ago at the Son House open mic nights at Beale Street,” he says. “As a bass player, I’d been hanging with a lot of bands; I wanted to extend myself.” Son House open mic night host Gordon Munding invited him. “So I worked up like five covers for about a month,” Scrivens says, “and showed up at the open mic with an old classical guitar. I didn’t even plug it in; I just put a mic in front of it.” The reaction was immediate. Scrivens was hooked.
“Once I started playing, a couple guys joined right in and played my set with me,” he says. “There was no turning back. The name ‘Cotton Toe’ became official a little over a year ago.” But why the blues for Scrivens? “I’ve just been drawn to it,” he says. “I’ve played bass all my life, in rock bands, metal bands. I’ve played all different types of music. The blues is … when I sit down with a guitar I just go right to that, I feel more connected to it. I don’t know — I just started doing what the muse was giving me.” Chatting with the 49-year-old musician, he seems happy and gregarious. There’s always a smile on his dial. His music comes naturally out of him. And lyrically, he’s not stilted or forced. He’s beyond the blues, although he clearly gravitates to it. “I describe what’s going on,” Scrivens says. “End of story. ‘My baby left me today, she left the lights on and the front door open. Oh and by the way I have a drinking problem, and I’m in debt.’ I just get right to it. No messing around.” There was no messing around in a friend’s home studio when it came time to record his first CD, “Downtrodden Blues.” He laid down the guitar, then he laid down the voice, and that was it. “Less is better,” he says. “One mic, and my cheap Chinese resonator, and me.” The end product was eight songs that were bluesy, yes, but with other elements of singer-songwriter and warm Americana denim, wood, and wire. “I wanted this to be an accurate representation of what I do,” Scrivens says of the CD’s overall acoustic rendering and feel, even though he has plans for more electric stuff in the future. And you really oughta hear the cat play “Amazing Grace” on the diddley bow. Plus, he plans on building his own cigar box guitar and an instrument called a canjo, which uses a beer can as its resonator. So the name “Cotton Toe” gets hoisted into a pantheon dominated by artist with names like Hound Dog, Lightnin’, Muddy, Howlin’, Magic, T-Model, T-Bone, and so on. Scrivens is flattered by the association before coming clean on the nickname’s origin. He claims to simply be a mailman with a painful corn on one of his toes which is relieved by some well-placed cotton balls. The funny thing is, I almost believed him before I glanced down and saw those alligator shoes.

ROCK | JACUZZI BOYS Jacuzzi Boys is loud, fast, steamy, and slightly trippy — and if you’re looking for even more validation, Iggy Pop is a fan. Established in 2007 by high school buddies Gabriel Alcala (guitar and vocals) and Diego Monasteri (drums), the Miami-based band later added Danny Gonzales on bass. The trio’s rendition of Big Audio Dynamite’s “E=MC2” is unexpected and impressive, while originals like “Happy Damage” flash back to the early days of punk rock.

ROOTS | DAVID MAYFIELD Watch in utter amazement as David Mayfield kicks it off in high gear, playing hella loose and reckless, and winding things up high and tight like a first-time inmate’s haircut. Mayfield’s guitar work is utterly brilliant and mad in a sort of demolition-derby way. It sounds as if the guitar can’t make up its mind, or has ideas of its own as the frets shout at Mayfield’s fingers, “Go here. No, go here. That’s right; now here. That’s it, that’s it. Now, doesn’t that sound cool?”

LECTURE | “TATTOO TRADITIONS OF TURTLE ISLAND” I sometimes joke with my friends that you’re more of an anomaly these days if you don’t have any tattoos. Though getting inked is a relatively commonplace practice, we often overlook the varied, globe-spanning traditions that tattooing emerged from, and the meaning behind certain permanent marks. This includes tattooing traditions that were practiced for thousands of years in this region as well. On Saturday, October 8, author, researcher, and archeologist Lars Krutak and Ganondagan curator Michael Galban will present “Tattoo Traditions of Turtle Island,” a lecture on the various forms of tattooing across indigenous cultures of North America. Krutak’s book, “Tattoo Traditions of Native North America,” is the first published on this subject, and explores how tattooing reflected tribal social organization and related to beauty, power, spirituality, medicine, and identity. Galban (Washoe/Paiute), interpretive programs assistant and curator at the Seneca Art & Culture Center, will present on tattoo traditions among the Northeastern Woodland peoples specifically. The event will take place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Ganondagan’s Seneca Art and Culture Center (7000 County Road 41 in Victor). Admission is $8 for the general public, and $5 for Friends of Ganondagan members. For more information, call 924-5848, or visit ganondagan.org. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY episcopalseniorlife.org.

THEATER | “WHEN YOU COMIN’ BACK, RED RYDER?” Mark Medoff’s “When You Comin’ Back, Red Ryder?” brings a quiet New Mexico diner to life, as characters come to terms with their fears, aspirations, and inner desires at the gunpoint of a Vietnam War veteran. The play is now being performed by University of Rochester’s International Theatre Program, as the cast takes on the disappearance of the “American Dream” in Medoff’s critique of post-Vietnam culture. The production’s director, Nigel Maister, is supported by set and costume designer Marsha Ginsberg, lighting director Thomas Dunn, sound designer Obadiah Eaves, and fight director J. David Brimmer. “When You Comin’ Back, Red Ryder?” will be performed at UR’s Todd Theater, 252 Elmwood Avenue, on Thursday, October 6, through Saturday, October 8, and Wednesday, October 12, through Saturday, October 15, at 7 p.m. Matinee performances will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 8, and Sunday, October 9. General admission is $15; $8 for UR students; $12 for alumni, faculty, and seniors. Recommended for mature audiences.

LECTURE | THE SCIENCE OF FASHION Rochester Museum and Science Center is kicking off this year’s Science on the Edge lecture series with a lesson in fashion. Syracuse University professor Jeffrey Mayer will discuss drastic changes in fashion since the mid-1900’s and how recent scientific discoveries and advances in technology — like 3D printing and “lab-grown” fabrics — have helped make the field what it is today. Mayer is a professor of fashion, fashion history, and textiles, as well as a curator for many local fashion-based exhibits and historical collections. The Science of Fashion will take place Thursday, October 6, at the Rochester Museum of Science Center, 657 East Avenue. 7 p.m. General admission is $10; $6 for students.

LITERATURE | AN EVENING WITH DAVID SEDARIS Beneath the wit, humor, and satire, David Sedaris tells stories that are intensely personal. The writer and occasional “This American Life” contributor holds nothing back, and it’s that willingness to share himself with his audience that has made Sedaris one of today’s indispensable humorists. Sedaris has written seven essay collections (five of which became New York Times bestsellers) — including “Me Talk Pretty One Day,” “Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim,” and his latest, “Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls” — each as revealing and funny as the next. A regular contributor to The New Yorker, Sedaris has covered a wide range of observations, from his childhood in North Carolina to his relationship with his longtime boyfriend and life in England, where he now makes his home. Writers & Books will host David Sedaris for an evening of stories, a Q&A, and a book signing on Sunday, October 9, at Kodak Center for Performing Arts, 200 West Ridge Road. 7:30 p.m. $39. 473-2590 x107; wab.org; davidsedarisbooks.com. — BY JAKE CLAPP

A rousing historical epic in the mold of Nat’s travels force him to witness the horrors “Braveheart,” “The Birth of a Nation” tells the story being carried out against his people, solidifying his of Nat Turner, tracing his path from a righteous resolve to stage the brutal uprising which resulted man of God to fiery instrument of God’s fury in the deaths of somewhere between 55 to 65 white as the leader of a bloody 1831 slave rebellion in men, women, and children. The film is vague Southampton County, Virginia.

on to win the festival’s Grand Jury and Audience awards. The film was destined for Oscar glory. But the narrative surrounding the film has shifted drastically in the intervening months, after the media rediscovered the deeply troubling rape allegations against Parker and cowriter Jean Celestin when the two were students at Penn State University back in 1999. Parker was acquitted, while Celestin was initially convicted and the sentence later overturned. But the case, its subsequent harassment suit, and the plaintiff’s suicide in 2012 now dominate any discussion of Parker’s film. Stories like this ask us to consider how much we’re willing to overlook for the sake of art. Here, the stark distinction between a work and the artist who created it is the clear tactic taken by the makers of the film, reiterated again and again during a tense press conference (which I attended) following the film’s debut at the Toronto International Film Festival last month. But keeping art and artist separate is often easier said than done. Further muddying the waters is Parker and Celestin’s decision to add a sexual assault against Turner’s eventual wife, Cherry (Aja Naomi King), that serves to further motivate the preacher toward action. Being an artist and putting a work out into the world opens you up to a certain level of scrutiny. As in most cases, it’s not a question of whether an artist should be allowed to continue to make art at all (no one seems to deny them that much), but whether they should be celebrated for it, showered with millions of dollars, or awarded glory. It’s a difficult question that doesn’t have a clear answer. The allegations shouldn’t be swept under the rug,

but whether or not knowing those facts impacts your decision to see the film is in the end a completely personal decision, and up to the individual. Still all of this debate leaves out any talk about the quality of the film itself, which in the end is a fairly by-the-numbers prestige historical drama. I respect Nate Parker’s commitment to bringing it to the screen; as far as first films go, it’s about as ambitious as one can get. But Parker is much stronger as an actor than a director: his central performance is terrific. His direction however, is significantly less confident. It often comes across as the work of a novice filmmaker, heavy-handed and literal-minded — Nina Simone’s rendition of “Strange Fruit” accompanies the image of lynched slaves, and there’s plenty of Jesus imagery, like Turner being literally touched by an angel. It too often falls into awards-bait clichés. Nat Turner’s story is one that undoubtedly deserves to be told, and the film joins “12 Years a Slave” and “Selma” as one of the rare filmed chapters of black history to be told by black artists themselves. But at the same time, I can’t help but wish Hollywood would see that slave narratives aren’t the only black stories worth telling or given the mark of “importance.” Just this year, we’ve gotten wonderful films like “The Fits,” “Queen of Katwe,” “Southside With You,” and the brilliant “Moonlight” (opening here in November), leaving no question that there’s plenty of other stories just as worthy of Hollywood’s (and audiences’) attention.

Preview: ImageOut 2016 [ PREVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY
ImageOut: The Rochester LGBT Film Festival THURSDAY, OCTOBER 6, THROUGH SUNDAY, OCTOBER 16 AT THE LITTLE THEATRE, 240 EAST AVENUE, AND DRYDEN THEATRE, 900 EAST AVENUE INDIVIDUAL TICKETS: $7-$25; FESTIVAL PASS: $220 271-2640; IMAGEOUT.ORG
ImageOut, Rochester’s biggest film festival and the largest LGBTQ film festival in New York State, kicks off its 24th year this week. The festival will include 36 feature films and four programs of shorts over the course of 10 days, from Friday, October 7, through Sunday, October 16. The festival is bookended by an Opening Party at Skylark Lounge (40 South Union Street) on Thursday, October 6, and a Closing Night Party on Saturday, October 15, at George Eastman Museum (900 East Avenue) — both are open to festival members and opening and closing night ticketholders. ImageOut Programming Director Michael Gamilla says that he’s noticed a trend in recent film themes shifting back toward the “basic issues of self-acceptance, coming out, family 26 CITY OCTOBER 5-11, 2016
acceptance, and bullying,” and less of a focus on political battles showcased in previous years. He says he has the sense this is due to recent victories in the fight for LGBTQ rights, though there are many ongoing struggles. But while some of these undying themes take center stage this year, “the narratives are not that simple,” Gamilla says. “The filmmakers have found creative ways of retelling older issues.” While LGBTQ stories are the central focus of many of the selected works, the festival also spotlights films in which those threads are subplots within more general human dramas. “The definition of ‘gay films’ is ever-expanding,” Gamilla says. As always, ImageOut will offer its two mainstay film series: the Next Generation Series, which is free for moviegoers under 21 and focuses on films about and geared toward young people; and the ImageOut There! Series, featuring some more off-beat titles that defy tidy categorization. All festival venues are wheelchair accessible, and sign language interpreters are available on request. Tickets are sold per film (in advance by phone and online, and in person), and a full festival pass is available for $220. Discounted tickets are available to seniors and young adults.
Below are a selection of eight ImageOut 2016 films that showcase this year’s variety of stories. For more information, go to imageout.org, or call the festival office at 271-2640. The opening scenes of “Heartland,” unpack a series of devastations for 20-something artist Lauren (the film’s co-writer, Velinda Godfrey). Immediately following her girlfriend’s death, she is evicted, loses her job, and is forced to move home to rural Guthrie, Oklahoma. Lauren is left to cope with her grief alone — while her conservative mother is ready to be a practical safety net, she’s simply unwilling to acknowledge Lauren’s identity or the nature of her lost relationship. Enter Lauren’s workaholic brother, Justin, and his sophisticated fiancée, Carrie (Laura Spencer), who arrive to settle practical matters for the winery they are about to open in town. When Justin has to leave town for business, culture-shocked Carrie and floundering Lauren fumble their way into an unexpected friendship that forces everything unspoken into the light. There’s enough humor and pleasurably wistful country vistas to keep this film buoyant through its uncomfortable brushes with familial wounds,
betrayals, and acceptance for what reconciliations won’t come. (Friday, October 7, 6:30 p.m., Little 1)

“Other People” follows struggling comedy writer David (Jesse Plemons) for a year as he fights to maintain a front of stability for his dying mother (Molly Shannon).The film offers some unspoken parallels between their experiences. She must relinquish her teaching career as her health deteriorates, and he helplessly watches other writers land opportunities he is competing for. While secretly coping with the split with his boyfriend of five years, David also harbors simmering resentment toward his father (Bradley Whitford), who has never accepted David’s sexuality. And as he races toward an inevitable breakdown, David’s efforts to stay strong for his family ironically prevent him from noticing that his younger sisters are suffering as well. Though rife with intimate conversations and excruciatingly extended goodbyes, the film has many moments of hilarious relief in some of its darkest moments. Keep an eye out for the fabulously entertaining Justin (J.J. Totah), who steals the show more than once. (Friday, October 7, 9 p.m., Little 1) Stories about reconciliation between parents and children with regards to sexuality are understandably common, but the focus is so often on the parents’ difficultly understanding or accepting their children’s identity. Piotr J. Lewandowski’s gorgeous work, “Jonathan,” flips this narrative, exploring a decades-old wound that the young son must strive to understand. Set in idyllic rural Germany, the story’s slow-paced, poetic opening alternates between the title character (played by Jannis Niewohner) caring for his dying father, Burghardt (Andre Hennicke), and toiling alongside his aunt Martha and other youths to keep the farm going. As Burghardt’s condition worsens, a shade from the family’s past arrives, igniting the embers of hostility between Martha and Burghardt. Left in the dark regarding family history and his mother’s tragic death, Jonathan becomes ferociously angry about what he sees as the root cause of so much pain. Fresh-faced Anka, who has arrives to help care for Burghardt, frolics sweetly with Jonathan while encouraging his artistic passion and urging him to make peace with his dad. Adept at dealing with the dying, Anka calmly sees the family through violent outbursts born of unresolved sorrow. And while she definitely fits into the manic-pixie-dream-girl foil, contrasting sharply against everyone else’s stubborn broodiness, she somehow escapes the more eyeroll-worthy clichés of the role. In German with English subtitles. (Saturday, October 8, 4:15 p.m., Dryden)

Pan Nalin’s “Angry Indian Goddesses” opens with an extremely satisfying montage of everyday sexism met with righteous feminine revenge. That series of scenes and its kicking soundtrack set an upbeat, if indignant, tone for what is ultimately a beautiful story about female friendship. One by one, women from diverse backgrounds gather at a remote house in Goa, and before long discover that their host, Frieda, has called them together for more than a reunion. Frieda’s getting hitched, but she hasn’t told anyone to whom. Complex dynamics within the circle of friends are revealed and resolved through candid conversations about profound dissatisfaction and hardships, while misogyny and rape culture continuously invade the spaces they are trying to carve out for themselves. Although the majority of the story is a fun romp peppered with doses of sharp reality, one particularly tragic turn — and its uncomfortable conclusion — forces us to consider questions of vigilante justice when women are left with no protection, no advocacy, and no other recourse. In Hindi and English with English subtitles.

'Closet Monster' PHOTO PROVIDED
the cool calm of the early morning, reveling in their newfound acquaintance. Presently, a sobering revelation cuts the flirtation short, resulting in an abrupt trip to the ER and potentially curtailing the budding romance. Yet directors Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau nimbly steer the pair toward an even deeper intimacy that is tested repeatedly during their film-long ramble through the sleepy streets. Despite the lowaction and only the drama of the heavy matter between them, their slow, sweet process of getting to know one another is engaging throughout. Few love-at-first-sight tales feel this remarkably tangible. In French with English subtitles. (Saturday, October 8, 9:15 p.m., Dryden) The slightly fantastical coming-of-age tale “Closet Monster” follows Oscar (Connor Jessup), whose youth has been marked by a bitterly broken home and a retreat into lonerism. His carefully constructed private haven, filled with deep creativity, dreams of college in New York City, and populated by a sassy, talking hamster (voiced with welcome levity by Isabella Rossellini), is disrupted when he develops an attraction to his charming coworker, Wilder (Aliocha Schneider). But any budding awareness of his sexuality is embedded within a challenging context: the damaging memories of witnessing a violent hate-crime as a child and an increasingly hostile relationship with his controlling, casuallybigoted father. This directorial debut from 26-year-old Canadian Stephen Dunn sets desperately dark drama in sharp contrast with the moments of peace our protagonist craves and deserves. (Sunday, October 9, 6 p.m., Little 1) Ivan Cotroneo’s “One Kiss” (“Un Bacio”) centers on three misfit friends who, for a time, help one another sail through the terrors of high school. Jaded and savvy Blu (Valentina Romani) narrates the story through a series of letters she’s writing to her future self. Branded as a slut due to rumors of her past sexual exploits — which of course oversimplifies the reality — she shields herself with a constant side-eye leveled at her peers.
Openly gay and seemingly unsinkable Lorenzo (Rimau Ritzberger Grillo) has been taken in by a perfect foster family who do their best to support him as he embarks on a fresh start as the new kid in town. Ever-positive, he drowns out the bullying with cheerful bouts of pop-laced fantasy. Though each of the kids are vulnerable, Antonio (Leonardo Pazzagli) is arguably the least equipped to deal with social pressure. He’s never overcome the death of his older brother, and though he’s one of the best basketball players on the team, he’s incredibly withdrawn until Blu and Lorenzo attempt to draw him out. Despite a film full of optimism, the strength of friendship can’t overcome the pressures of homophobia and bullying on the youths. But brilliantly, the film offers a lesson within a crushingly simple alternative ending. (Monday, October 10, 8:30 p.m., Little 1)
The title of Chanya Button’s first fill-length feature, “Burn Burn Burn,” is pulled from famous lines penned by Jack Kerouac, and in the spirit of the beat writer, the film involves a life-altering road trip. The story opens with friends and family mourning the death of Dan, and centers on Seph (Laura Carmichael, known for her role as Lady Edith from “Downton Abbey”) and Alex (Chloe Pirrie), who were kept in the dark about his terminal pancreatic cancer. Dan’s parting gift to his two best friends is a video that imparts his love while he commands them to scatter his ashes in four locations across the UK. At each stop, they learn the significance of the place through a corresponding potion of the video. Initially hesitant to comply, the gals relent after a couple of abrupt and unfortunate events. What follows is one hell of a carpe diem piece. As Dan’s health visibly deteriorates at each stop, his teasing nature shifts gears from philosophy, to anger, to tough-love, urging the girls to confront and resolve secrets and regrets, get real about their lives, and rage against the dying of the light.

Marrying the old with the new
100 S. Washington St Nestled in Rochester’s oldest residential neighborhood, Corn Hill, 100 S. Washington St. blends the old with the new. Built in 1850, this two-bedroom Greek Revival style home maintains some of its original features, like hardwood floors covering most of the first floor and original siding. Several rounds of renovations have brought in some modern conveniences and some features to enhance the home.
snugly into the peaks of the roof. A large skylight brightens up the bathroom.
During a renovation in the 1970s, the ceiling of a downstairs bedroom was removed, creating a vaulted-ceiling living room. It’s a change that fits seamlessly into the open, airy feel of the home. Large windows, stretching nearly from floor to ceiling, are in each room and seem positioned to soak up the morning sun. In the kitchen, an island, with a sink and ample room for prep space, opens on to a larger room, an ideal space for hosting a dinner party where the hosts can prep while entertaining their guests. Indeed, the open floor plan of the first floor is ideal for entertaining, and easily adaptable for everyday living. The kitchen includes a full set of recently updated stainless steel appliances.
The 1,390 square foot home is surrounded by history; Rochester’s first mayor and other early city leaders lived in Corn Hill and it’s where the founders of the University of Rochester and Rochester General Hospital met to make their plans. Sit on your front porch or out back on the patio and marvel at the architectural variety of the neighboring homes on this oneway street. With an active neighborhood association, you’ll also enjoy the comfort of a tight knit, supportive community.
Upstairs, the sunlit theme continues with large windows in the bedroom that fits
With a sizable yet cozy enclosed backyard that includes flower gardens along the perimeter, a brick patio, a brick chimney oven and a garden shed, it doesn’t feel like you’re in the city. But here in Corn Hill you are just a short walk from downtown, Corn Hill Landing, and the Genesee Riverway Trail.
For more information about 100 S. Washington, contact Richard Sarkis at Nothnagle Realtors at 585-756-7281. The list price, recently reduced, is $99,900. by Arn J. Albertini Arn is a freelance writer, city resident, owner of a historic home and a lover of history.

SUPREME COURT COUNTY OF MONROE WELLS FARGO FINANCIAL CREDIT SERVICES NEW YORK,
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 30 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Be bold when it comes to love and relationships. Instead of making assumptions, be direct and find out where you stand. You cannot bring about change if you don’t know what needs to be done. Confidence and courage will help you recognize and pursue the right partner. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll find love in unanticipated places. Travel to destinations that will introduce you to uncommon events and activities or that will spark your imagination and open your mind to new interests and people. Embrace life and live in the moment, and a romantic encounter will sweep you off your feet.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Timing will be crucial when it comes to love and romance. Either you’ll want to settle down and the person you peg as your partner won’t, or vice versa. Consider the consequences of forcing the issue, and take a moment to rethink the long-term effects of not being on the same page. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Attracting potential partners will be easy, but finding that special connection that pushes you from comfortable to the thrill of a lifetime will leave you feeling uncertain and concerned about your future. You’ll be faced with following your heart or choosing the safe route.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your desire for change, excitement and adventure will make it difficult for you to commit to anyone. Back away if someone tries to get you to say the words “I love you” too soon. Engage in activities that will encourage you to meet new people and broaden your romantic options. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): It will take a special someone to grab your attention. Engage in activities or events that are unusual or will tempt, test and entice you. The thrill and the desire to try new things will encourage you to gravitate toward someone quite different from you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You need to connect on a higher level if you are going to make a relationship with someone work. The partner who can make you think and engage your imagination with lifelong goals that you can pursue together will far exceed someone who captures you physically. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take a walk on the wild side, and challenge someone you find desirable mentally, physically and emotionally. There will be plenty of chances to find love if you get involved in events that are challenging and require personal skill. The person who keeps up with you will also win your heart.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): You’ll get a false impression if you believe everything you hear about someone who interests you. Find out exactly who and what this person is like firsthand. Making assumptions will lead to disappointment and a situation that may be difficult to get out of if you jump in too quickly. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Work-related events are likely to lead to temptation. Before you get involved with someone you meet while on a business trip or in the throws of a project, consider how well you might get along if you didn’t have work to talk about. Don’t act too hastily.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Your heart will lead you in one direction, and your head will take you in another. Uncertainty is your signal to take more time to get to know potential partners. Honesty should come first, and if anyone you are interested in won’t give you the time, you need to be sure walk away. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t let anyone mess with your mind when it comes to love. If someone interests you, it is up to you to decide whether you are going to surrender to the advances being made. Don’t let anyone interfere with your decision. Only you know who is right for you.
