In a city that’s touted such asinine projects as the Toronto ferry and Ren Square, one would have thought it would be impossible to ever find a civic “improvement” project that was an even bigger waste of tax dollars, or one that, unlike those other blue sky nightmares, has the potential to cost lives. But with the Broad Street aqueduct project a new low had been achieved. Of course the plan to turn the aqueduct into a glorified frog pond has been proposed before. But, like Frankenstein’s monster, this idea just won’t die. Nor will its supporters ever explain how in hell they think they can eliminate downtown’s busiest street level bridge without creating a traffic nightmare and with the attendant danger to public safety. JACK SULLIVAN

Spending at least $250,000 a year to maintain the Broad Street Bridge and extension tunnel (Genesee Transportation Council budget allots money every year) and keep it from collapsing onto the Erie Canal bed is not a long-term plan, but has been necessary for the decades in which the subway tunnel and aqueduct bridge have sat dormant.

when there are three others within walking distance letalone driving distance is a minimal consolation to creating a destination space focusing on pedestrians between two of our biggest city destinations for visitors (Blue Cross Arena and the Convention Center). I encourage anyone to look into North Shore in Pittsburgh or Prospect Ave District in Cleveland to see the positive effects of creating these kinds of pedestrian spaces. I also submit to the jury the Highline in NYC and Riverwalk in Chicago as ways to re-utilize our existing infrastructure and promote our natural resources. And let’s bury the ferry; that debacle happened 12 years ago. No one died. I think we can move forward. MATT ROGERS

The plusses for marijuana

On a reader’s letter raising concerns about legalizing marijuana:

I respect how the writer’s personal experiences have shaped her views on marijuana. But when she says “the state can think of no better way to avoid disproportionate imprisonment of minorities and combat the opioid crisis than to drive people deeper into a destructive lifestyle and create new and improved drug addicts,” I want to point out that “the state” does not think. American citizens are the ones who have been pushing for medical and recreational marijuana. In 2016, Prop 64 in California passed with a reported 55 percent in favor. That same year, a medical marijuana bill passed in Florida, with 71.1 percent in favor. In Nevada, 54 percent of voters supported the Nevada Marijuana Legalization Initiative, and in Massachusetts, 54 of voters supported a bill that would regulate marijuana in a manner similar to alcoholic

beverages. When it comes to marijuana, it has been the will of the people which has demanded a change to irrational, draconian, and discriminatory policies. The writer may believe that marijuana inevitably leads to “destructive lifestyles” and drug addiction, but that is just her opinion. One person’s drug can be another person’s medicine, herb, or source of recreational enjoyment. Real science is showing what ancient cultures have known for thousands of years: cannabis reduces nausea and vomiting (useful in chemotherapy today), increases appetite (useful to HIV/AIDS patients), and treats chronic pain and muscle spasms. Marijuana has been an integral part of religious, shamanic, and spiritual practices since at least the Neolithic Age. The substance is indigenous to Central and South America, and has a long and distinguished history in China and Japan. In these cultures, marijuana has been used as an impetus for creativity, a relaxant, a medicinal aid, a source of floral and home decoration, a religious sacrament, a building material, and more. Put simply, marijuana is not a “breakthrough for modern medicine,” because it has always been part of human culture. Thankfully we live in a democracy where the will of the majority dictates policy and laws. That is clearly what has been happening in states such as Colorado, Washington, Nevada, Maine, Vermont, and Massachusetts. Very soon the entire nation of Canada will be following suit. GEORGE PAYNE

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER

Lessons on development from Detroit’s mayor Like a lot of people concerned about Rochester, I try to follow what other cities are doing to cope with the challenges we’re facing here. One of those cities is Detroit, whose problems dwarf ours. Since its peak in 1950, Detroit has lost more than 60 percent of its population. There are strong, beautiful neighborhoods, and there are block after block of vacant lots and boarded-up buildings. Downtown, there are spectacular, historic buildings full of people and businesses, and a few blocks away, equally spectacular buildings that have been deteriorating for years. Concentrated poverty, a school district that many residents shun, income inequality: Detroit has all of that. It is also gaining a reputation as a city on its way back, attracting developers, businesses, and residents. Several months ago, I came across a video of a speech by Detroit’s mayor, Mike Duggan, outlining the principles he and his staff are using as their city builds its future. The speech was the keynote address at the 2017 Mackinac Policy Conference, an annual gathering of Detroitarea business, political, and community leaders, hosted by the Detroit Chamber of Commerce. The audience, Crain’s Detroit Business reported, was “a predominately white crowd of business and political elites.” Duggan’s speech, which you can watch online (search for “Duggan Mackinac speech”) was clearly a marketing tool. But it began with a powerful, sobering lesson, tracing the history of housing policy in the US and in Detroit. “The way Detroit looks today,” Duggan said, “is directly rooted in planning decisions that the leaders of this community made in the 1940s and 1950s.” And, he said, “unfortunately, many of those decisions were rooted in racial discrimination.” Planning, zoning, development regulations, urban renewal, banking policies: government officials at the federal level and at the local level crafted policies and regulations that forced poor people out of their homes and neighborhoods and limited where they could go. This is not Duggan’s opinion. It is a fact of American history. It happened in Detroit, and it happened in Rochester. You can see the effects today, in neighborhoods with concentrated poverty, where most residents are people of color. And you can see it in suburbs that are almost exclusively white. And, as Duggan noted, the problems continue today, as more people find that cities are attractive places to live and do business. If government leaders view development only

If planning and zoning don’t have a moral component, the poor –often people of color –won’t benefit from growth. They’ll suffer from it.” in terms of economic gain – if planning and zoning don’t have a moral component – the poor, often people of color, won’t benefit from the growth. They’ll suffer from it. Detroit’s in growth mode. Rochester isn’t, but downtown and some neighborhoods are very much in demand right now. So Duggan’s little lecture has lessons for us as well. As it experiences its first growth in decades, Duggan said, Detroit has an opportunity to shape itself for the future. But that growth needs to be planned, he said. And managed. With a clear vision of what Detroit’s people want their city to be. Duggan and his administration have come up with what he said is a “guiding principle”: “one city for all of us.” That principle, he said, “defines our planning strategy.” Among the decisions Duggan and his administration have made: The city won’t support development if it will “move out Detroiters so other people can move in.” There’ll be no tax breaks for development that displaces residents or reduces the number of affordable housing units. And if a housing development needs city financing, 20 percent of the units have to be affordable housing. The city has established a housing trust fund to help preserve affordable housing in continues on page 10 rochestercitynewspaper.com

Canal Corp says it’ll delay clear-cutting

The state Canal Corporation is pausing its plan to remove large numbers of trees from the banks of the Erie Canal west of Fairport. Earlier this year, the Canal Corporation began a preventive maintenance project that involved removing trees from 56 sites between the Village of Medina in Orleans County and the Village of Fairport. It had already done clear-cutting work from Medina through Brockport when it was sued by Brighton, Pittsford, and Perinton over the plans. In March, a judge ordered the Canal Corporation to perform an environmental review. The project has been in stasis since then. The Democrat and Chronicle reported last week that the agency isn’t contesting the decision and is, instead, conducting an environmental review of the tree cutting program across the entire canal system. It’s not clear how long the review will take. But the review doesn’t mean the Canal Corporation is abandoning the plan; a spokesperson for the agency told the D&C that officials expect the

review will support their project. The Canal Corporation argues that the Erie Canal embankments in question were designed to be free of deep-rooted vegetation such as trees. The roots can loosen soil as they grow and destabilize the banks, officials argued. Water can also leak into the embankments through root channels, they say. The embankment is basically a dam, and the tree removals would be consistent with Federal Emergency Management Agency and US Army Corps of Engineers dam management guidelines. Opponents have argued that the project is unnecessary, that the trees being removed are environmentally and aesthetically beneficial, and that the project could affect the value of homes along the canal, since it would change the view from the private properties.

EDUCATION | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

Rochester school district braces for another harsh report There have been numerous reports over the years looking for reasons for the Rochester school district’s stubbornly low performance and the problems in its operations. State education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia is now reviewing a new one. Jaime Aquino, the consultant Elia appointed to examine the Rochester district last summer, sent Elia his findings last week. A spokesperson for Elia gave no indication of when it will be released to the public. School board members haven’t seen the report, board vice president

Willa Powell says, but they’re bracing for a tough assessment, and they’re expecting a strong public reaction. “He told board members, ‘My report is going to be scathing, and it’s going to touch everyone,’” Powell said in recent interview. The board has held off from making any major decisions until after the report is released and they know what’s in it, Powell said. Elia appointed Aquino as a distinguished educator for the Rochester school district in July, and he started work in August. He was asked

to take roughly 45 days to observe the district’s operations, identify problems, and make recommendations on how to address them. Elia cited several familiar reasons for hiring Aquino: the district’s low graduation rate, poor performance on state-mandated English and math tests, and the high number of city schools in receivership because of persistently low outcomes. Aquino is a non-voting member of the board, and he’ll be working in the district for a year, according to Elia’s spokesperson.

A new report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says global efforts to limit man-made climate change have been inadequate. And preventing the worst effects of climate change will ‘require rapid, far-reaching, and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society,’ over the next decade.

ENVIRONMENT | BY JEREMY MOULE

Climate report calls for ‘unprecedented’ action A new, comprehensive report on global warming, prepared by the top climate change agency in the world, doesn’t contain much in the way of good news. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change bluntly warns that humanity has just over a decade to slash carbon emissions dramatically if it wants to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. The report has direct implications for Greater Rochester, just as it does every other place on Earth. It says the planet’s average temperature has already warmed by 1 degree Celsius – 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit – since the start of the Industrial Revolution. And already, places across the planet are experiencing more extreme weather, rising sea levels, and less Arctic sea ice. To prevent potentially catastrophic effects from climate change, warming needs to be limited 1.5 degrees Celsius, says the report. “It means we have a lot of work to do,” says Abigail Mc-Hugh Grifa, a co-leader of the Rochester People’s Climate Coalition. For a long time, global and environmental leaders talked about the need to keep the increase in global average temperature below 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit). But in the leadup to the 2016 Paris Agreement, scientists, the IPCC, and heads of state agreed that ceiling

was too high, and they agreed to work toward limiting global average temperature increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius. The IPCC report lays out the benefits of the more aggressive goal, including greater protection of ecosystems. A 2 degree rise in global average temperature would likely mean an increase in extremely hot days, heavy precipitation in several regions, and drought or dry conditions in other regions. But the report says that global efforts to prevent climate change have been inadequate, and that staying within the 1.5-degree threshold will “require rapid, far-reaching, and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society.” By 2030, global carbon emissions will need to be cut to 45 percent of 2010 levels. And by 2050, they’ll have to be low enough that they don’t exceed nature and technology’s capacity to remove carbon from the atmosphere. “The next few years are probably the most important in our history,” Debra Roberts, co-chair of an IPCC working group, said in the press release. President Donald Trump isn’t taking the report – or climate change in general – seriously, so any sort of federal action seems unlikely. In the US, that’s left the matter in the hands of lower governments,

from states on down to individual cities, towns, and villages. New York has been pressing forward with programs to boost solar power and other forms of renewables. The state’s utilities are now required to get half of their power from renewables by 2030. But that target isn’t aggressive enough to The 2017 flooding along Lake Ontario was caused largely by exachieve the emissions treme weather.

THIS YEAR’S TOP 10 PROJECT CENSORED STORIES

THE REAL FIGHT AGAINST FAKE NEWS MEDIA | BY PAUL ROSENBERG | ILLUSTRATIONS BY ANSON STEVENS-BOLLEN

Fake news is not a new thing, and the new edition of Project Censored selections – the list of the year’s most important but unreported or under-reported stories – uses a reference to a 1938 fake news story as an illustration. The cover art for the latest Project Censored book, “Censored 2019: Fighting the Fake News Invasion,” recalls HG Wells’ “War of the Worlds.” The situation today may feel as desolate as the cover art suggests. “But Censored 2019 is a book about fighting fake news,” editors Andy Lee Roth and Mickey Huff observe in the book’s introduction. In the end, they argue that “critical media education – rather than censorship, blacklists, privatized factcheckers, or legislative bans – is the best weapon for fighting the ongoing fake news invasion.” Censorship and fake news are “intertwined issues,” Roth and Huff write. The cover art theme works at two levels, as the editors explain. The famous Orson Wells radio broadcast of the “War of the Worlds” on October 30, 1938, presented a drama as though it were an actual crisis in progress. It became an example of the potential power of fake news in the radio media era. “The broadcast became legendary for allegedly leading to widespread panic throughout the United States,” the Project Censored editors write. But as Jefferson Pooley and Michael J. Socolow have documented in a series of articles over the past decade, both the audience size and degree of panic have been significantly inflated. The top 10 of this year’s 25 Project Censored stories:

OCTOBER 17 - 24, 2018


GLOBAL DECLINE IN THE RULE OF LAW AS BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS DIMINISH According to the World Justice Project Rule of Law Index 2017–2018, released in January 2018, a striking worldwide decline in basic human rights has driven an overall decline in the rule of law since October 2016, the month before Trump’s election. Fundamental rights – one of eight categories measured – declined in 71 out of 113 nations surveyed. Overall, the scores of 34 percent of the countries declined, while those of just 29 percent improved. The United States ranked 19th, down one from 2016, with declines in checks on government powers and deepening discrimination. Fundamental rights include absence of discrimination, right to life and security, due process, freedom of expression and religion, right to privacy, freedom of association, and labor rights. Constraints on government powers saw the second greatest declines (64 countries out of 113 dropped). This is where the United States saw the greatest deterioration, World Justice Project stated in a press release. “While all subfactors in this dimension declined at least slightly from 2016, the score for lawful transition of power – based on responses to survey questions on confidence in national and local election processes and procedures – declined most markedly,” the press release stated. The United States also scored notably poorly on several measurements of discrimination. “With scores of .50 for equal treatment and absence of discrimination (on a scale of 0 to 1), .48 for discrimination in the civil justice system, and .37 for discrimination in the criminal justice system, the US finds itself ranked 78 out of 113 countries on all three subfactors,” World Justice Project stated. The four Nordic countries – Denmark, Norway, Finland, and Sweden – remained in the top four positions. New Zealand, Canada, and Australia were the only top 10 countries outside of Europe. “The WJP’s 2017–2018 Rule of Law Index received scant attention from US corporate media,” Project Censored noted. The only coverage Project Censored found was a Newsweek article drawing on The Guardian’s coverage. This pattern of ignoring international comparisons, across all subject matter, is pervasive in the corporate media. It severely cripples our capacity for objective self-reflection and self-improvement as a nation.

consolidation of corporate power inside US intelligence has left the country dangerously dependent on a handful of companies for its spying and surveillance needs.” Eliason reported how private contractors pioneered open-source intelligence by circulating or selling the information they gathered before the agency employing them had reviewed and classified it; therefore, “no one broke any laws.” As a result, according to Eliason’s second article, “People with no security clearances and radical political agendas have state-sized cyber tools at their disposal, [which they can use] for their own political agendas, private business, and personal vendettas.” Corporate media reporting on Vault 7 sometimes noted but failed to focus on dangerous role of private contractors, Project Censored says. A notable exception was a Washington Post op-ed in which Shorrock reviewed his previous reporting and concluded that overreliance on private intelligence contractors was “a liability built into our system that intelligence officials have long known about and done nothing to correct.”

WORLD’S RICHEST 1 PERCENT CONTINUE TO BECOME WEALTHIER

“OPEN-SOURCE” INTELLIGENCE SECRETS SOLD TO HIGHEST BIDDERS In March 2017, WikiLeaks released Vault 7, a trove of 8,761 leaked confidential CIA files about its global hacking programs. It drew significant media attention. But almost no one noticed what George Eliason of OpEdNews pointed out. “Sure, the CIA has all these tools available,” Eliason said. “Yes, they are used on the public. The important part is it’s not the CIA that’s using them. That’s the part that needs to frighten you.”

The CIA’s mission prevents it from using the tools, Eliason noted, especially on Americans. “All the tools are unclassified, opensource, and can be used by anyone,” Eliason said. Drawing heavily on more than a decade of reporting by Tim Shorrock for Mother Jones and the Nation, Eliason’s OpEdNews series reported on the explosive growth of private contractors in the intelligence community, which allows the CIA and other agencies to gain access to intelligence gathered by methods they’re prohibited from using. In a 2016 report for The Nation, Shorrock had concluded that “not only has intelligence been privatized to an unimaginable degree, but an unprecedented

In November 2017, Credit Suisse released its 8th Annual Global Wealth Report, which The Guardian reported on with the headline “Richest 1% Own Half the World’s Wealth, Study Finds.” The wealth share of the world’s richest people increased “from 42.5% at the height of the 2008 financial crisis to 50.1% in 2017, or $140tn (£106tn),” The Guardian reported, adding that the biggest losers “are young people who should not expect to become as rich as their parents.” “No other part of the wealth pyramid has been transformed as much since 2000 as the millionaire and ultra-high net worth individual (known as UHNWI) segments,” the report said. “The number of millionaires has increased by 170%, while the number of UHNWIs (individuals with net worth of USD 50 million or more) has risen fivefold, making them by far the fastest-growing group of wealth holders.” “At the other end of the spectrum, the world’s 3.5 billion poorest adults each have assets of less than $10,000,” The Guardian reported. “Collectively these people, who account for 70% of the world’s working age population, account for just 2.7% of global wealth.” “Tremendous concentration of wealth and the extreme poverty that results from it are problems that affect everyone in the world, but wealth inequalities do not receive rochestercitynewspaper.com

nearly as much attention as they should in the establishment press,” Project Censored noted.

HOW BIG WIRELESS CONVINCED US THAT CELL PHONES AND WI-FI ARE SAFE Are cell phones and other wireless devices really as safe we’ve been lead to believe? We shouldn’t bet on it, according to decades of buried research reviewed in a March 2018 investigation for The Nation by Mark Hertsgaard and Mark Dowie. “The wireless industry not only made the same moral choices that the tobacco and fossilfuel industries did, it also borrowed from the same public relations playbook those industries pioneered,” Hertsgaard and Dowie reported. “Like their tobacco and fossil-fuel brethren, wireless executives have chosen not to publicize what their own scientists have said about the risks of their products.” “On the contrary,” they said, “the industry – in America, Europe, and Asia – has spent untold millions of dollars in the past 25 years proclaiming that science is on its side, that the critics are quack, and that consumers have nothing to fear.” Their report comes at the same time as several new developments are bringing the issue to the fore: a Kaiser Permanente study (published December 2017 in Scientific Reports) finding much higher risks of miscarriage; a study in the October 2017 American Journal of Epidemiology, finding increased risk for glioma (a type of brain tumor); and a disclosure by the National Frequency Agency of France that nine out of ten cell phones exceed government radiation safety limits when tested in the way they are actually used, next to the human body. The Kaiser Permanente study involved exposure to magnetic field non-ionizing radiation associated with wireless devices as well as cell phones and found a 2.72 times higher risk of miscarriage for those with higher versus lower exposure. Lead investigator DeKun Li warned that the possible effects of this radiation have been controversial because, “from a public health point of view, everybody is exposed. If there is any health effect, the potential impact is huge.” “The wireless industry has ‘war-gamed’ science by playing offense as well as defense, actively sponsoring studies that result in published findings supportive of the industry, while aiming to discredit competing research that raises questions about the safety of cellular devices and other wireless technologies,” Project Censored summarized. “When studies have linked wireless radiation to cancer or genetic damage, industry spokespeople have pointed out that the findings are disputed by other researchers.” 8 CITY

OCTOBER 17 - 24, 2018

While some local media have covered the findings of a few selected studies, Project Censored note, “the norm for corporate media is to report the telecom industry line — that is, that evidence linking WiFi and cell phone radiation to health issues, including cancer and other medical problems, is either inconclusive or disputed.

WASHINGTON POST BANS EMPLOYEES FROM USING SOCIAL MEDIA TO CRITICIZE SPONSORS On May 1, 2017, the Washington Post introduced a policy prohibiting its employees from criticizing its advertisers and business partners, and encouraging them to snitch on one another. “A new social-media policy at The Washington Post prohibits conduct on social media that ‘adversely affects The Post’s customers, advertisers, subscribers, vendors, suppliers or partners,” Andrew Beaujon reported in The Washingtonian the next month. “In such cases, Post management reserves the right to take disciplinary action ‘up to and including termination of employment.’” Beaujon also cited “a clause that encourages employees to snitch on one another: ‘If you have any reason to believe that an employee may be in violation of The Post’s Social Media Policy … you should contact The Post’s Human Resources Department.’” A follow-up report by Whitney Webb for MintPress News highlighted the broader possible censorship effects, as prohibiting social media criticism could spill over into reporting as well. “Among The Washington Post’s advertisers are corporate giants like GlaxoSmithKline, Bank of America and Koch Industries,” Webb

wrote. “With the new policy, social media posts criticizing GlaxoSmithKline’s habit of making false and misleading claims about its products, inflating prices and withholding crucial drug safety information from the government will no longer be made by Post employees.” Beyond that, Webb suggested that the policy could protect the CIA, which has $600 million contract with Amazon Web Services. Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos, purchased The Post four months after that contract was signed. “While criticism of the CIA is not technically prohibited by the new policy, former Post reporters have suggested that making such criticisms could endanger one’s career,” Webb noted. “Corporate news coverage of The Washington Post’s social media policy has been extremely limited,” Project Censored noted.

RUSSIAGATE: TWOHEADED MONSTER OF PROPAGANDA AND CENSORSHIP Is Russiagate a censored story? Not exactly. But what Project Censored calls attention to is important: “Corporate media coverage of Russiagate has created a two-headed monster of propaganda and censorship. By saturating news coverage with a sensationalized narrative, Russiagate has superseded other important, newsworthy stories.” In April 2017, Aaron Maté reported for The Intercept on a quantitative study of MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show from February 20 to March 31, 2017, which found that “Russia-focused segments accounted for 53 percent of these broadcasts.” “Maddow’s Russia coverage has dwarfed the time devoted to other top

issues,” Maté wrote, “including Trump’s escalating crackdown on undocumented immigrants (1.3 percent of coverage); Obamacare repeal (3.8 percent); the legal battle over Trump’s Muslim ban (5.6 percent), a surge of anti-GOP activism and town halls since Trump took office (5.8 percent), and Trump administration scandals and stumbles (11 percent).” At Truthdig, Norman Solomon wrote: “As the cable news network most trusted by Democrats as a liberal beacon, MSNBC plays a special role in fueling rage among progressive-minded viewers toward Russia’s ‘attack on our democracy’ that is somehow deemed more sinister and newsworthy than corporate dominance of American politics (including Democrats), racist voter suppression, gerrymandering, and many other US electoral defects all put together.”

REGENERATIVE AGRICULTURE AS “NEXT STAGE” OF CIVILIZATION The world’s agricultural and degraded soils have the capacity to recover 50 to 66 percent of the historic carbon loss to the atmosphere, according to a 2004 paper in Science, actually reversing the processes driving global warming. A set of practices known as “regenerative agriculture” could play a major role in accomplishing that, while substantially increasing crop yields as well, according to information compiled and published by Ronnie Cummins, director of the Organic Consumers Association in May 2017. “For thousands of years we grew food by depleting soil carbon and, in the last hundred or so, the carbon in fossil fuel as well,” food and farming writer Michael Polin wrote. “But now we know how to grow even more food while at the same time returning carbon and fertility and water to the soil” Cummins, who’s also a founding member of Regeneration International, wrote that regenerative agriculture offers a “worldchanging paradigm” that can help solve many of today’s environmental and public health problems. As The Guardian explained: “Regenerative agriculture comprises an array of techniques that rebuild soil and, in the process, sequester carbon. Typically, it uses cover crops and perennials so that bare soil is never exposed, and grazes animals in ways that mimic animals in nature. It also offers ecological benefits far beyond carbon storage: it stops soil erosion, re-mineralizes soil, protects the purity of groundwater, and reduces damaging pesticide and fertilizer runoff.”


“We can’t really solve the climate crisis (and the related soil, environmental, and public health crisis) without simultaneously solving the food and farming crisis,” Cummings wrote. “We need to stop putting greenhouse gas pollution into the atmosphere (by moving to 100% renewable energy), but we also need to move away from chemicalintensive, energy-intensive food, factory farming, and land use, as soon as possible.” In addition to global warming, there are profound economic and social-justice concerns involved. “Out-of-touch and out-of-control governments of the world now take our tax money and spend $500 billion ... a year mainly subsidizing 50 million industrial farmers to do the wrong thing,” Cummins wrote. “Meanwhile, 700 million small family farms and herders, comprising the 3 billion people who produce 70% of the world’s food on just 25% of the world’s acreage, struggle to make ends meet. If you’ve never heard of it before, don’t be surprised. “Regenerative agriculture has received limited attention in the establishment press, highlighted by only two recent, substantive reports in the New York Times Magazine and Salon,” Project Censored wrote.

CONGRESS PASSES INTRUSIVE DATA-SHARING LAW UNDER COVER OF SPENDING BILL On March 21, the 2,232page omnibus spending bill was released. It passed both houses and was signed into law in two days. Attached to the spending provisions that made it urgent “must-past” legislation was the completely unrelated Clarifying Lawful Overseas Use of Data Act of 2018, also known as the CLOUD Act. “The CLOUD Act enables the US government to acquire data across international borders regardless of other nations’ data privacy laws and without the need for warrants, ” Project Censored summarized. It also significantly weakens protections against foreign government actions. “It was never reviewed or marked up by any committee in either the House or the Senate,” the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s David Ruiz wrote. “It never received a hearing…. It was robbed of a stand-alone floor vote because Congressional leadership decided, behind closed doors, to attach this unvetted, unrelated data bill to the $1.3 trillion government spending bill.”

FBI IS RACIALLY PROFILING “BLACK IDENTITY EXTREMISTS”

Congressional leadership failed to listen to citizen concerns, Ruiz wrote, with devastating consequences: “Because of this failure, US and foreign police will have new mechanisms to seize data across the globe. Because of this failure, your private emails, your online chats, your Facebook, Google, Flickr photos, your Snapchat videos, your private lives online, your moments shared digitally between only those you trust, will be open to foreign law enforcement without a warrant and with few restrictions on using and sharing your information, privacy and human rights,” concluded Greene Robyn Greene, who reported for Just Security. “The little corporate news coverage that the CLOUD Act received tended to put a positive spin on it,” Project Censored noted. A glowing Washington Post op-ed “made no mention of potential risks to the privacy of citizens’ personal data, [and a CNET report that] highlighted the liberties that the CLOUD Act would provide corporations by simplifying legal issues concerning overseas servers.”

INDIGENOUS COMMUNITIES AROUND THE WORLD ARE HELPING WIN LEGAL RIGHTS OF NATURE In March 2017, the government of New Zealand ended a 140-year dispute with an indigenous Maori tribe by enacting a law that officially recognized the Whanganui River, which the tribe considers their

ancestor, as a living entity with rights. The Guardian reported it as “a world first,” although the surrounding Te Urewera National Park had been similarly recognized in a 2014 law, and the US Supreme Court came within one vote of potentially recognizing such a right in the 1972 case Sierra Club v. Morton. In addition, the broader idea of “rights of nature” has been adopted in Equador, Bolivia, and by some American communities, noted Mihnea Tanasescu, writing for The Conversation. But that could be just the beginning. “It is a critical precedent for acknowledging the Rights of Nature in legal systems around the world,” Kayla DeVault reported for YES! Magazine. Others are advancing this perspective, DeVault wrote: “In response to the Standing Rock Sioux battle against the Dakota Access pipeline, the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin amended its constitution to include the Rights of Nature. This is the first time a North American tribe has used a Western legal framework to adopt such laws. Some American municipalities have protected their watersheds against fracking by invoking Rights of Nature.” If the New Zealand Whanganui River settlement “was able to correct the gap in Western and indigenous paradigms in New Zealand, “ said DeVault, “surely a similar effort to protect the Missouri River could be produced for the Standing Rock and Cheyenne River nations by the American government.” The same could be done with a wide range of other environmental justice disputes involving Native American tribes.

At the same time that white supremacists were preparing for the “Unite the Right” demonstration in Charlottsville, the FBI’s counterterrorism division produced an intelligence assessment warning of a very different though actually non-existent threat: “black identity extremists.” The report appeared to be the first time the term had been used to identify a movement, according to Foreign Policy magazine, which broke the story. “But former government officials and legal experts said no such movement exists, and some expressed concern that the term is part of a politically motivated effort to find an equivalent threat to white supremacists,” Foreign Policy reported. “The use of terms like ‘black identity extremists’ is part of a long-standing FBI attempt to define a movement where none exists,” said former FBI agent Mike German, who now works for the Brennen Center for Justice. “It’s classic Hoover-style labeling with a little bit of maliciousness and euphemism wrapped up together,” said William Maxwell, a Washington University professor working on a book about FBI monitoring of black writers. “There is a long tradition of the FBI targeting black activists, and this is not surprising,” Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson told Foreign Policy. A former homeland security official said that carelessly connecting unrelated groups will make it harder for law enforcement to identify real threats. “The corporate media [has] covered the FBI report on ‘black identity extremists’ in narrow or misleading ways,” Project Censored noted, citing examples from the New York Times, Fox News, and NBC News. “Coverage like this both draws focus away from the active white supremacist movement and feeds the hate and fear on which such a movement thrives.”

News in brief continues from page 4

Incarceration has been a growth industry, with significant economic influence on many of the region’s communities. There are 35 incarceration facilities – federal prisons, state prisons, county jails, and detention centers – within 90 minutes of the UR’s River Campus, says Joshua Dubler, a UR assistant professor of religion. The short-term goal of the new effort, named the Rochester Decarceration Research Initiative, will be to document and analyze the Rochester area’s part in the state’s prison system and how the area is tied politically, economically, and culturally to mass incarceration. The longer term goal is to speed justice reform, including greatly reducing the number of prisons and jails in the area. “We want the UR to become a force in the decarceration of Rochester and the surrounding areas,” Dubler says. One of the biggest challenges the team faces is changing public perception, says Dubler. Research shows that mass incarceration doesn’t reduce crime, he says, but it’s not easy to convince people that crime can be reduced with better education, health care, and housing. As part of its effort, the Initiative is holding an informational lecture series. On Wednesday, October 17, Orisanmi Burton, professor of anthropology at American University, will speak on the topic “Tip of the Spear: Revolutionary Organizing and Counterinsurgency in New York State Prisons.” In his lecture, Burton will focus on the growth of the New York’s prison system. On Wednesday, October 24, Allison Griffiths, professor at City University of New York, will discuss “Looking Out and Looking In: Prison Communities through the Prism of Film.” Griffiths uses Auburn and Sing Sing prisons to show the complex relationship between prisons and their communities. Both lectures will be held at the UR’s Humanities Center D, Rush Rhees Library, at 5 p.m. 10 CITY OCTOBER 17 - 24, 2018

buildings whose low-income housing tax credits are expiring. The city is taking over abandoned houses and selling them on the internet. The Duggan administration is encouraging mixed-income housing all across the city, to fight economic segregation. “It would be so easy in this city to have one area of the city be all wealthy people and another area be all poor people,” Duggan said. To avoid that, “you have to work really hard at it every single day.” And Duggan’s administration is focused on building a city that feels like a city: one with “neighborhoods of density.” “If you want to live in a neighborhood with 2500-square-foot Colonials on a cul de sac,” Duggan said, “you’ve got lots of good choices in the suburbs.” City living, he said, offers a different lifestyle, one where goods and services are within walking distance. Duggan did a fair amount of bragging. He talked about home prices in some neighborhoods growing by more than 50 percent in three years. He talked about businesses he says are making money investing in Detroit. He talked about the growth in small businesses operated by African Americans. Part of a mayor’s job is to be a cheerleader, obviously. But something really is going on in Detroit. Earlier this week, for instance, Crain’s Detroit reported that a major Toronto developer is looking at Detroit property to invest in. So it’s significant that Detroit’s mayor is talking about affordable housing throughout the city, about equity and inclusiveness. It’s also significant that Duggan’s talk last year was at an event sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce. He got a standing ovation, and hugely positive press following it. That’s important, because while their words and their initiatives matter, mayors can’t work magic. They need partners. Rochester’s mayor has been helping lead efforts on everything from poverty reduction to affordable housing. I wonder, though, what kind of reception she’d get if she gave Duggan’s speech at our Chamber of Commerce. And at a meeting of Monroe County legislators and suburban town supervisors. The government decisions made in the 1940s and 1950s are still creating problems today, as Detroit’s Mike Duggan said. And cities like Detroit and Rochester can’t undo them on their own.

Launching ‘Black Lives Matter’

Friends and Foundation of the Rochester Public Library will present a review of “When They Call You a Terrorist: a Black Lives Matter Memoir” by Patrisse Khan-Cullors and Asha Bandele on Tuesday, October 23.

Khan-Cullors, Bandele, and Opel Tometi were outraged when no one was found guilty in the death of Trayvon Martin, and they created a hashtag that started the Black Lives Matter movement. Now that movement is considered by many to be one of the most important in the post-Civil Rights era. Alexus Clark, organizer with the Center for Teen Empowerment, will review the memoir as part of the library’s “Books Sandwiched In” series. The event will be held at the Central Library, 115 South Avenue, from 12:12 p.m. to 12:52 p.m.

[ FEATURE ] BY RACHEL CRAWFORD

It finally feels like October in Western New York. During harvest season, locals delight in fresh grapes, apples pears, and pumpkins – and along with that, the fleeting beauty of the foliage in the Finger Lakes. The geological history of the formation of the lakes is special to our region. Mile-high glaciers once sculpted the hills, lakes, and gorges that visitors travel from all over the country to see. Seneca Lake’s wine region is particularly special because of its size, its depth (the deepest of the lakes) and the number of wineries that border it.

Stonecat Café is an excellent choice for lunch or dinner after a day of hiking and sipping Riesling at the myriad Seneca Lake wineries. This year marks Stonecat’s 19th year providing local, ethical, and delectable food as well as jazz-themed live music. Nestled between willow trees on the east side of Seneca Lake, the restaurant’s outdoor patio is a serene spot to watch the sun set (and for timing an approaching rainstorm before it baptizes a patio meal). For day-trippers, Stonecat is also a great place to stop for lunch. The lunch menu features sausage corndogs and smoked tofu salad, and each item on the menu is paired with a suggested wine.

Guests should be sure to try house favorites like the comforting Russet potato poutine made with chicken and duck stock. However it would be wise to ask about the specials: Stonecat recently featured a tender bone-in braised duck leg served with sautéed kale (and a side of the creamy potato sauerkraut gratin is a hearty pairing). The duck was accented with a savory sage biscuit made by pastry chef Daphne Nolder. (Be sure to leave room for dessert, especially if Nolder’s house-made pear sorbet is on the menu). The question at hand is when to go to Stonecat. Thursday through Sunday nights offer more upscale service, and yet maintain the spot’s comfortable atmosphere. Wednesday night after 5 p.m. is pub night, when guests have access to the bar menu anywhere in the restaurant and can enjoy live folksy music. That’s the night to get burgers and poutine. The joint also hosts live jazz during Sunday brunch. “This place has so many faces,” owner Scott Signori says. “If you come in for jazz brunch, for lunch, for dinner, for pub night — those are four different experiences.” Hopefully

guests get to experience the springy and animated Sheila Wales as their server, who has been with Stonecat since 2001, and knows just what they need to feel at home. Everything about the dish in front of the guest has a local touch. Even the name stonecat comes from the name of the catfish that live under the stones in Seneca Lake. Signori purchases whole, local, and antibiotic- and hormone-free animals from Ground Up Farms. The meat is then broken down at Autumn’s Harvest Farm in Romulus. With all of the local focus, Signori estimates that Stonecat annually puts approximately $800,000 back into the local economy. For those visiting Seneca Lake this fall, save the date for the Stonecat closing party held on the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Signori describes the party as “a rager,” and says there will be three bands and a buffet that features the maple-juniper sausage, made in house. “That’s where the Stonecat sausage corndog was born,” Signori says, referring to the now regular lunch item. rochestercitynewspaper.com CITY 11

Set for release on October 20, “Kokopelli” is Auld Lang Syne’s latest batch of exquisitely crafted indie folk, and it’s a consummate set of simply arranged songs overflowing with warmth. Self-produced and mastered by Sam Snyder, the album has great sonic balance, with a wonderfully full, acoustic guitar-driven sound at the fore. Charming group vocals and the prominent use of banjo bends the music toward Americana. The vibe is organic and elemental, as suggested by such winning tracks as “Seed,” “Dirt,” and “Water.” Auld Lang Syne will play two CD release shows in Rochester: Thursday, October 24, 7:30 p.m. at Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way, $5; Saturday, October 26, 8 p.m. at The Little Café, 240 East Avenue, free. — BY DANIEL J.

Archimedes ‘Harmonium’ Self-released archimedesband.bandcamp.com

Archimedes’ new CD “Harmonium” unfolds like little dreams that are anchored in plaintive delivery. Listen as the acoustic guitar swirls in a circular cadence, weaving a tapestry throughout the casually shared harmony like smoke wafting from an inviting campfire. It’s like a preamble to a madrigal, a requiem for a dream. When someone handed me this disc, I was told something like, “It’s folk,” but I have to disagree. Sure the set-up is bare-bones and the guitars move the air about splendidly, but Archimedes speaks as and to the dreamer (not within a collective). And it does the job well. Archimedes will play a free album release show with Ben Morey and Cammy Enaharo on Wednesday, October 17, 7 p.m. at South Wedge Mission, 125 Caroline Street.

Music the fictional Tony Soprano and the very real Bruce Springsteen, Van Zandt fronts Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul. He has also starred in his own television series, “Lilyhammer,” hosts a weekly radio show called “Little Steven’s Underground Garage,” runs the record label Wicked Cool Records, and has established the foundation TeachRock, which advocates for music education in schools. At each stop of Van Zandt’s current tour, teachers get in free and can register for a free, pre-show TeachRock workshop at teachrock.org/tour. A Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul show aims to tell the history of rock and roll in a revved-up fashion. It’s a jukebox opera, with more than a dozen performers who expand on the genre’s humble beginnings with other styles including funk, blues and doo-wop. It’s a gift from Van Zandt, a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer who feels a sense of responsibility to share what he says is “the greatest music ever made.” Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul are performing at Kodak Center on October 20. Before heading out for the Soulfire Teacher Solidarity Tour, Van Zandt spoke over the phone about his many projects and his connection to Rochester rock music. An edited version of the interview follows. CITY: How did you develop your work ethic? “Little Steven” Van Zandt: Growing up in

the era I grew up in, it was a renaissance period with very high standards and very high-quality stuff was going on all around you, so your standards were immediately set very high. When the greatest art being made is also the most commercial, that’s how one would define a renaissance period. I think the fact that I achieved success kind of late helped create this feeling that you’re always “The creation of something from nothing is the most satisfying part of my life,” “Little Steven” Van Zandt says. trying to play catch-up. I think part of it is PHOTO BY JO LOPEZ being from New Jersey, too. You’re always like second best. You’re the underdog, so you tend to work harder just because of your environment.

What has been one of your personal highlights as a bandleader?

This past tour has been extremely meaningful for me to reconnect with my work for the first time in 25 years. To see the enthusiasm from the audience has been extremely encouraging. It’s been so encouraging that I’m in the middle of

recording an album of new material for the first time in a long time. The first time around was great, but this time around I’m appreciating it more because I realize now how difficult this is to pull off. It’s even more satisfying now that we’ve combined touring with my foundation work. What’s at the root of your passion for education?

It might be guilt to some extent, because I feel like, “Why did my generation have all the fun? Why did we have all the greatest music ever made? Why did we have all the greatest art and entertainment? The greatest economy ever?” We were so lucky. I think it’s an obligation to pass along to the next generation something that’s similar. At least they should have access to the music, so they get a chance to be inspired by it the way we were. That’s why I started my radio show and that’s why I’m doing the educational foundation, just to make sure the greatness of our art form is accessible for future generations. Your record label released albums by The Chesterfield Kings. How did you hook up with this Rochester band?

When we started the radio show, we were looking for bands in the style of garage rock that we defined as traditional rock and roll. They were one of the foremost bands doing it at the time. My first broadcast of the show was live at the Hard Rock, and I think they just showed up and introduced themselves. I ended up working with them and I might be working with [The Chesterfield Kings bassist] Andy [Babiuk] again. We’re talking about his new band, The Empty Hearts, coming over to Wicked Cool Records. Andy and I stayed close friends all these years. What brings you joy?

Mostly creativity, it’s what it comes down to. My family brings me joy – my wife, my friends, my dog – but the actual work is what I’m really all about. The creation of something from nothing is the most satisfying part of my life.

Installation view of eight paintings from Monet’s “Waterloo Bridge” series, part of the current exhibition at Memorial Art Gallery. PHOTOS BY JON LIEBHERR

Seeing science “Monet’s Waterloo Bridge: Vision and Process” CONTINUES THROUGH JANUARY 6, 2019 MEMORIAL ART GALLERY, 500 UNIVERSITY AVENUE $5-$20, FREE TO MEMBERS AND AGES 5 AND YOUNGER | 276-8900; MAG.ROCHESTER.EDU [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

It isn’t often that a showcase of paintings by a renowned artist also offers the opportunity for scientific discussion. French Impressionist painter Claude Monet was known for repeatedly painting specific vistas at different times of day and night, masterfully recording the way light, humidity, and other atmospheric conditions altered the look and feeling of places. He created different series on Rouen Cathedral, on his gardens at Giverny, and on a few specific sites on the Thames River, including the Gothic, imposing Houses of Parliament and the

Waterloo Bridge. His diverse body of work on the latter site is the subject of “Monet’s Waterloo Bridge: Vision and Process,” on view at the Memorial Art Gallery through January 6, 2019. The exhibition showcases eight of Monet’s 40 paintings of the Waterloo Bridge, including the MAG’s own jewel-like version, “Waterloo Bridge, Veiled Sun,” and seven other versions borrowed from North American sister institutions: the National Gallery of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Worcester Art Museum, the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Denver Art Museum, the Baltimore Museum of Art, and the Davis Museum at Wellesley College. The gilt-framed canvases form a crescent around one section of the Docent Gallery, providing viewers a great opportunity to study and compare the different paintings. Though each painting is luminous in its own right, some of the works are grittier views of the urban site while others depict the arched structure melting into near-fairyland atmospheres in unexpected periwinkle or minty hues. Provided info states that “Monet felt that the true subject of his London paintings was the ‘envelope,’ or all that was

between him and the motif of Waterloo Bridge and its surrounds. This envelope included the effects of water, light, fog, and smoke.” It’s fascinating to see this one view of the bridge look so drastically different depending on the time of day, weather, and smoke from the turn-of-the-century industrial smokestacks spearing the sky in the background. At each painting there’s text that gives details on the brushstrokes and different limited color palettes Monet used in each work, based on specialized analysis of the paintings. The exhibit gets into Monet’s techniques in hyperdetail with some fun, interactive stations, which are set up in a different part of the gallery. The stations give visitors a chance to tinker with imaging technology and learn about a lot of the science that goes into (carefully) studying works of art. The show also provides historical context for Monet’s paintings, with displays of other examples of his work and that of his contemporaries pulled from the MAG’s collection. Andrew Cappetta, the MAG’s Assistant Curator of Academic Programs, also curated a companion exhibit: “Seeing in Color and Black-and-White.”

ART | ‘DEARLY DEPARTED’

THEATER | ‘HAY FEVER’

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the founding of 1975 Gallery, which emerged as a pop-up within Surface Salon in the South Wedge before gaining its own white walls on Charlotte Street. Though 1975’s brick-and-mortar spot has been closed down for a few years now, owner and curator Erich Lehman has continued his work bringing creatives together for various projects, most notably in his role has lead curator for WALL\ THERAPY. This week Lehman will present “Dearly Departed,” the first of two exhibitions to be held in celebration of 1975’s 10 years. As Halloween and all things spooky are Lehman’s wheelhouse, the show is horror-themed and features dozens of artists he’s worked with over the years. And fittingly, the show will be presented at a space in the same building as Surface Salon’s current location.

Noël Coward’s three-act comedic romp, “Hay Fever,” will this week be presented by Nazareth College Theatre and Dance Department and Theatre League. Set in the 1920s, the play follows one chaotic weekend in the life of the misbehaved Bliss family. Actress Judith, novelist David, their cartoonist son Simon, and daughter Sorel have each invited different guests to stay at their home in the English countryside. The family of outsiders and artists has no interest in actually hosting their normie guests, and wackiness ensues.

“Dearly Departed” opens on Saturday, October 20, 7 to 10 p.m. at 661 South Avenue, Suite A. Limited hours after the opening reception include Sunday, October 21, noon to 4 p.m.; Tuesday, October 23, and Thursday, October 25, 5 to 8 p.m.; Saturday, October 27, and Sunday, October 28, noon to 4 p.m.; and by appointment. 1975ish.com. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

“Hay Fever” will be performed at Callahan Theater (Nazareth College Arts Center, 4245 East Avenue) on Thursday, October 18 through Saturday, October 20, at 7:30 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday, October 20 and 21, at 2 p.m. Tickets are $12 for general admission and $10 for seniors. Fair warning to parents: the play contains mild innuendos and romantic situations. 389-2170; naz.edu/events/3081. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

The program includes eight dancers in collaboration with spatial sound engineer Tom Montagliano, with light design and tech by Occurrent Arts. The audience will be seated inside a circle formed by eight speakers, which will produce a 3D soundscape in a dream-like exploration of cause and effect. “Ripple” will be performed on Friday, October 19, and Saturday, October 20, at 7 and 9 p.m. each night, at Rochester Dance Theatre, 250 Cumberland St, Suite 250.

Film There’s a playful energy to the film, but with a slightly melancholy undercurrent derived from the feeling of growing older, and tying into Lowery’s continued fascination with the passage of time. There’s a wonderful sequence late in the film, in which Tucker lays out his 17 previous prison escapes. Incorporating footage from Redford’s films, we’re able to see him age from a boy, then a teen, and finally the man we recognize. As a breezy crime caper, “The Old Man & the Gun” makes for satisfying entertainment, but as a tribute to Redford’s legacy and his remarkable career, it becomes immensely moving. It’s a charming fable about the simple joy of doing what makes you happy, knowing what you’re good at, and sticking to it. If this does turn out to be Redford’s final screen appearance, he’s chosen well. We’ll just have to see if it sticks.

Film Listings Robert Redford in “The Old Man & the Gun.” PHOTO COURTESY FOX SEARCHLIGHT

Time is on his side “The Old Man & the Gun” (PG-13), DIRECTED BY DAVID LOWERY OPENS FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19 [ PREVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW

In interviews prior to the film’s release, actor Robert Redford has said that his performance in “The Old Man & the Gun” will be his final onscreen role. The film’s inspired by the true story of bank robber Forrest Tucker who, starting at the age of 15, spent a lifetime in and out of prison, managing to escape to freedom nearly every time. Directed by David Lowery (“A Ghost Story,” “Pete’s Dragon”) with a loose, freewheeling style, it’s appropriately a story about a man who can’t seem to stay away from doing what he loves.

Tucker is a fascinating character: an outlaw who carries a gun but claims to never have used it. He’s so friendly and courteous while holding up bank tellers that they can’t help but describe him to police officers later on as “a gentleman.” He’s always charming and polite, with a smile that never leaves his face. And why shouldn’t he be happy? He’s having fun, clearly getting a kick out of his bank-robbing antics. Redford plays Tucker with his movie star charisma dialed up to 11, a twinkle in his eye and an impish grin; it’s not hard to see why he’s irresistible to everyone he encounters. When we meet up with Tucker, he’s working with a crew, Theodore “Teddy” Green (Danny Glover) and John Waller (Tom Waits), two men who seem to get the same satisfaction from being outlaws that Tucker does. Together, they’re quickly dubbed by the media as “The Over-the-Hill Gang,” but

even that seems to amuse them. Tucker’s also started wooing a recent widow named Jewel (a luminous Sissy Spacek), and their courtship is a joy to watch unfold. She’s (understandably) a bit skeptical of him, but is just as drawn to him as everyone else is. There’s the barest hint of conflict to the film, as Tucker is pursued by detective John Hunt (Lowery regular Casey Affleck). He’s dissatisfied with his career, turning 40 and cranky about it. That plot is almost beside the point, and along the way Hunt realizes that the chase is more fun than the actual catching. As a result, there’s no real tension to this story, which I suppose might be a problem if that’s at all what you’re looking for. Instead Lowery gives the whole thing a genial, laid back vibe. He lays on the 70’s style in effective but unobtrusive ways, using lots of pans and zooms, and occasionally turning his camera away from the main action to notice small details or conversations happening nearby.

[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 23 ] [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY THE EDITORS AT ANDREWS MCMEEL SYNDICATION

Weird Science? Officials in Midway, Arkansas, still don't know what caused flames to shoot out of a hole in the ground on Sept. 17. Volunteer fire chief Donald Tucker was summoned to private property at the edge of town where the flames were shooting up to 12 feet high, reported the Springfield News-Leader. Tucker inspected the site after the fire subsided and said the 2-foot-diameter hole was about 3 feet deep and made a 45-degree turn at the bottom. "I took a temperature reading

of it and it showed 780 degrees inside the hole," he added, but he couldn't identify the source of the flames. There are no gas lines nearby, and there was no smell of gas before or during the fire. He also ruled out a meteor strike or flaming space junk. Geologists from the Arkansas Geological Survey inspected the hole and concluded it had been dug by an animal, but they took soil samples for testing. County judge Mickey Pendergrass said Satan had also been ruled out. rochestercitynewspaper.com CITY 27
