Dems vs Dems, locally and nationally

A new candidate, Hilda Rosario Escher, is considering entering the race to unseat Senator Joseph Robach in the 56th New York Senate District. This is occurring despite the fact that a bright, young, and progressive candidate, Jeremy Cooney, achieved a sizable 44 percent of the vote against Robach in 2018 and is making another run for this seat in 2020. In an interview, Escher told the Democrat and Chronicle: “I am not running against anybody. I am just seeking a seat.” She added, “Joe Robach has done amazing work for this community, and he is a friend.” Once people realize how Robach’s voting record was not “amazing work for this community,” however, Jeremy Cooney stands a very good chance of victory. This divisive scenario, unfortunately, is happening not only locally but on the national stage. By dividing the Democratic Party and the principles it stands for, we can almost be assured of defeat. Obviously, Escher wants to play nicely 2 CITY

in the sandbox with Robach. This will not serve us well if you are concerned about public health, gun safety, and marriage equality, among other important issues. While Robach did vote in favor of prohibiting the declawing of pussy cats, a brief look at his voting record shows he voted against: Protecting women’s rights in having a voice about their own health and family planning, prohibiting discrimination based on gender identity or expression, permitting people to marry those they love, tightening up background checks for gun ownership, increasing renewable energy goals, protecting rent control as people are priced out of the rental market, and eliminating religious exemptions for vaccines. While he might be everyone’s “friend,” Robach’s voting record belies his concern for the rights and safety of individuals. For a potential opponent to say “he’s done amazing work for the community” makes little sense to me. I realize that politics is full of quid pro quo’s and often comes down to funding of everyone’s pet projects and, above all, the optics and photo-ops that come with these awards. But it’s also about how one votes when the proverbial rubber hits the road. This is what really affects us as citizens. We need fresh ideas that promote individual freedoms and make our community a better place to live. Complimentary comments about our opponents do not serve us well. SANFORD J. MAYER, ROCHESTER

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER

The future of Rochester in a few hundred pages In 15 years, Rochester will celebrate its 200th anniversary as an incorporated city. It’s not likely to look dramatically different than it does now, but change is inevitable. And government officials can have a good bit of influence on how change affects the people who live and work here. Some of that influence will come from a document nearing completion right now: “Rochester 2034,” the latest version of the city’s comprehensive plan. Hundreds of pages long, full of photographs and charts, “Rochester 2034” will help guide city officials as they make decisions about things like land use, development, and zoning over the next 15 years or more. Significantly, it will guide officials as they write the next version of the city’s zoning code. While city planners and other City Hall staff wrote the new comprehensive plan, it’s the result of extensive input from the public, both before it was written and as city staff have discussed its draft version with neighborhood groups and others over the past several months. It’s also posted on the city’s website. A three-month public comment period on the draft version ends August 16. City planners will keep making revisions through the end of the month, based on what they’re hearing. And they hope to present the final plan to the Planning Commission September 9 and to City Council in the fall. In addition to being a blueprint for things like the zoning code, Rochester’s comprehensive plan also serves as a vision of what the community hopes to be. And as with previous comprehensive plans, the language can sometimes be a little lofty. It envisions Rochester in 2034 this way: “a beautiful, progressive, lively, healthy, and welcoming city... a resilient and confident community where diverse neighborhoods are engaged and thriving; downtown is the vibrant heart of our region; our unique network of active waterfronts is accessible to all; and innovation, adaptation, and inclusion drive us forward.” “Rochester 2034” isn’t a document full of pipe dreams, though. In fact, it’s refreshingly realistic in many areas. The comprehensive plan, says Dorraine Kirkmire, the city’s manager of planning, has to strike a balance. It has to be visionary, because it has to reflect the community’s hopes and anticipate what will happen in the next 15 or so years. But, she says, it can’t be so visionary and so lofty that what it recommends won’t happen. The comprehensive plan is full of recommendations, and they’re just that: recommendations, not laws or zoning changes. But it’s an important document.

Part ‘vision,’ part hard realism, ‘Rochester 2034’ reflects changes in the city as well as new interests, hopes, and concerns.

While the zoning code governs things like whether businesses can be located in residential areas, New York law says zoning codes have to be “adopted in accordance with a comprehensive plan.” “The comprehensive plan should provide the backbone for the local zoning law,” says a state publication on zoning and planning. Previous comprehensive plans and other, similar documents have left their imprint on the Rochester we have now. The city has been hit hard by suburban sprawl and the dramatic shrinkage of big industry, but the growth in downtown housing; the focus on access to the river; the requirement that new downtown construction be built flush with public sidewalks rather than set back, suburban office-park style: all of that has been reflected in previous comprehensive plans and related documents. In many areas, “Rochester 2034” continues charting the course set in previous comprehensive plans. But it also reflects the changes the city has experienced. In its discussion of retail, the plan recommends that the city re-examine its parking requirements and think about loosening them. Businesses like the Dinosaur Barbecue downtown and restaurants on Park Avenue have been successful without designated off-street parking, the plan notes. continues on page 8 rochestercitynewspaper.com

City appeals ruling on RCSD referendum

As Mayor Lovely Warren promised, the city filed an appeal late last week in the New York State Supreme Court’s Appellate Division, asking the court to reverse a lower court’s decision barring a referendum on a state takeover of the Rochester City School District. In June, City Council approved Mayor Lovely Warren’s request for a referendum on a temporary takeover of the district, which would remove the elected Rochester school board. The school district sued the city, and on August 2, State Supreme Court Justice Scott Odorisi sided with the school district, saying that the referendum is “advisory” because only the state legislature can remove the school board, and an advisory referendum is prohibited by state law. Odorisi ruled that a letter from Warren to 30,000 constituents was “improper” because it implied an endorsement of the takeover. The Warren administration also wanted to remove school board members’ salaries regardless of the outcome of the referendum, and Odorisi ruled against that as well. In its 33-page appeal, the city cites school district

problems that were detailed in a report by Distinguished Educator Jaime Aquino, including that the district has had five superintendent in the last 10 years, school board members haven’t been clear about their role, and board members have tried to manage the day-to-day operations of the district. Odorisi said that the school district is a separate institution from city government, and he cited a previous court decision saying that public education is “beyond control by municipalities.” In its appeal, the city argues that: • School board members “in essence” have two “largely overlapping offices,” one created by state education law and another created by the City Charter; • The charter provisions under dispute were enacted by the state legislature and thus are not preempted by state law; • Rather than being an “advisory” referendum, state law requires the referendum because it abolishes or changes the terms of an elected official; • The mayor’s letter to 30,000 constituents was educational, not advocacy. In a statement following the city’s filing, school district officials said they were “evaluating the city’s arguments” and that they “are confident in the merits” of their case.

News PRESERVATION | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

Local churches receive preservation funds

Four historic churches in the Greater Rochester area are getting help on crucial repairs and restoration work, thanks to grants from the New York Landmarks Conservancy. The recipients: St. Luke and St. Simon Cyrene Episcopal Church and Immanuel Baptist Church in Rochester, First Baptist Church on Batavia, and Christ Episcopal Church in Albion. St. Luke and St. Simon Cyrene on South Fitzhugh Street downtown, known as Two Saints, located on South Fitzhugh Street in downtown Rochester, received $15,000 to help fund a new roof. The oldest public building still in use in the city, its cornerstone was laid in 1825, and Nathaniel Rochester was its first warden. Immanuel Baptist Church on Park Avenue received $3,000 to help assess repairs to the church’s stucco-clad exterior and slate roof. The Tudor Revival-style church was built in 1925 and was designed by Rochester architect J. Foster Warner.

CITY Newspaper presents

In Batavia, First Baptist Church will use its $17,500 grant to help pay for repairs to the bell tower, roof, and stained glass window restoration. And Albion’s Christ Episcopal Church received $3,000, which will also go to stained glass window restoration. All of the churches are still operating, but like many older religious buildings, they need numerous repairs and ongoing maintenance, says Ann Friedman, director of New York Landmarks’ Sacred Sites grant program. And the hefty cost of the work often exceeds what the congregations can afford on their own, says Friedman. The Conservancy provides financial support because little public funding is available to religious buildings for historic preservation, she says. Friedman also helps church leaders identify architects and contractors who are experienced with this type of repair work.

EDUCATION | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

“New York joins 11 other states and the District of Columbia in having laws barring gun possession from people deemed to be a threat to themselves or others. One study has found that the laws reduce the incidence of gun suicides.”

GUN CONTROL | BY KAREN DEWITT

State’s red flag law takes effect soon In the wake of mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, there’s been renewed discussion about socalled “red flag laws” to keep guns out of the hands of some potential killers. Twelve states and Washington, DC, have already adopted a version of the law, including New York, whose red flag law was approved last winter and takes effect on August 24. New York’s law, also known as an extreme risk protection order law, allows a judge to order the confiscation of a person’s guns if law enforcement, school officials, or family members sign a statement saying they believe the person to be a potential danger to themselves or others. The person would also be prevented from buying any guns while the order is in effect. After authorities take the guns away, a due process hearing would be held, where evidence would be presented, including things the person might have said to others verbally or on social media. After that, if the judge found that evidence “clear and convincing,” he or she could extend the protection order for up to one year. A study found red flag laws in Indiana and Connecticut reduced the

occurrence of gun suicides. Congress has prevented federal agencies from studying the effects of gun violence, so not much other data is available. New York has an additional means of keeping guns away from potentially dangerous individuals. Known as the mental health database, it was approved as part of comprehensive gun control measures known as the SAFE Act, which was passed in 2013, shortly after the Sandy Hook, Connecticut, school shooting.

The provision requires mental health professionals in New York to notify authorities if they think a patient might engage in conduct that would result in serious harm to themselves or others. Discussing it on WXXI’s “Connections” program last week, Cuomo said New York’s mentalhealth data base contains the names of 100,000 “seriously mentally ill people” who can’t now buy guns. The requirement is controversial among some mental health advocates, who say someone could end up on the list simply for discussing their symptoms with a medical professional. Cuomo wants the database extended to the rest of the country, and he’s asked Democratic presidential candidates to endorse that proposal, as well as a ban on assault weapons and universal background checks for gun buyers. Karen DeWitt is Albany correspondent for WXXI News.

RCSD grad rates climb The Rochester City School District’s 2018-2019 graduation rate is 57.8 percent. Though it is still low, it’s a 3.5 percent increase over last year, continuing the rate’s upward trajectory. But an even larger jump at East Upper and Lower School has exceeded some district officials’ expectations. East’s graduation rate for its first full four-year student cohort — students who started at East as freshmen four years ago and graduated as seniors — was 65 percent. The graduation rates for East and the district as a whole represent students who graduated in June 2019. School officials expect the rate to increase for both when August’s graduate rates are included later this year. East’s grad rate is especially encouraging, says school board president Van White. The University of Rochester, in a partnership with the Rochester school district, oversees the management of East. The school was on the verge of closing just over five years ago. “We have made an investment in East and we’re seeing what works,” White says. East has made social-emotional support for students a top priority and it houses a Technical Assistance Center where its best practices are shared with principals and teachers in other district schools. The State Education Department still has to review the data and it usually provides the official numbers in January.

Arian Horbovetz, the author of the Urban Phoenix blog, says cities across the country are trying to figure out how to safely and effectively work new forms of transportation, including electric scooters, into roadways that have been dominated by cars. PHOTO BY JACOB WALSH TRANSPORTATION | BY JEREMY MOULE

The scooters are coming, eventually To some of their harshest critics, electric scooters are nuisance death machines that send scores of people to the hospital and pile up in parks when people aren’t using them. They have a nasty reputation to shake, and the scorn directed at them could delay the launch of a scooter sharing system in Rochester. In May, City Council members approved an agreement with Zagster, the company that runs Rochester’s popular bike share program, to establish and run a similar system for e-scooters, electric motor-powered versions of the two-wheeled planks with handlebars that many of us had as kids. But the whole arrangement depends on a change to state law, which currently doesn’t allow for electric scooter use — or electricassist bike use, for that matter — on streets or sidewalks. The state Assembly and Senate passed legislation that would make the needed fixes, but Governor Andrew Cuomo hasn’t yet 6 CITY

AUGUST 14 - 20, 2019

signed it. And nobody’s sure if he will. The lawmakers aren’t sure which way Cuomo is leaning, says Assembly member Harry Bronson, one of the legislation’s cosponsors. Representatives from the e-scooter industry have said they’re willing to work through changes if the governor has concerns or objections, Bronson says. In June, Crain’s New York Business reported on remarks the governor made about e-scooters and electric-assist bikes. The article quotes Cuomo as saying the legislation is “going to, I think, need more review and discussion.” Among the concerns he specified, according to Crain’s: riders using e-bikes on sidewalks and whether the legislation should require users to wear a helmet. Still, Rochester will likely see electric scooters on its streets at some point in the near future; whether it’s within the year or sometime over the next few years is the question. City


Council member Mitch Gruber, who chairs the Parks and Public Works Committee, says the scooters are “part of a larger conversation about transportation, and it’s not going away.” While City leaders wait on the state, Gruber has put together a group to think through what sort of laws Rochester needs for the changing mobility landscape, which includes electric bikes and scooters as well as traditional bicycles. The group includes local transportation advocates, representatives from Healthi Kids and the Center for Disability Rights, and city officials. “In my opinion, as a fairly new Council member, this is an opportunity to re-engage the communication around complete streets and around sharing the road safely,” Gruber says. The group started off with some proposed changes to city law submitted to Council by Mayor Lovely Warren; Council put the legislation on hold in June. Under those additions, e-scooters and electric-assist bikes would be treated the same way city laws currently treat bicycles. For example, riders would be required to use scooters and bicycles — traditional as well as electric — in bike lanes when available and safe, says a memo from the mayor. The legislation also proposes some other needed transportation law fixes, including a direct ban on vehicles parking in bike lanes, Gruber says. If Cuomo doesn’t sign the e-scooter bill in the next month or so, Gruber says he’ll likely introduce the ban on parking in bike lanes and some other bike-oriented tweaks to the law on their own so that they can get on the books. Electric scooters can be divisive. They have a lot of fans and supporters, who say that the machines provide simple, low-cost transportation that’s particularly well-suited for short, zippy trips around cities. Scooter naysayers aren’t wrong in their criticisms, either. People have been hurt and even killed using the scooters, either through their own inexperience and carelessness or by actions of drivers. Some cities have horror stories of e-scooters piling up in parks and public thoroughfares. Gruber says that Rochester is taking an important step to avoid the nuisance of abandoned scooters accumulating in public spaces. It’s only allowing in one operator, Zagster, and has capped the number of scooters it can bring in, he says. Zagster has been good about responding when problems develop with its Pace bike share program, including bikes left in places they shouldn’t be, he says. In many communities, one of the biggest debates has been around whether e-scooters and electric bikes have a place on sidewalks or whether they belong exclusively in the street.

Many of the cities, though not all of them, legally require that users ride the scooters on streets. But users still ride them on the sidewalks and in the larger cities that’s created conflict, and quite a few collisions between scooter users and pedestrians. E-scooters and electric-assist bikes are fairly speedy, especially for sidewalk traffic. The pending state law would allow e-scooters as long as they have a top speed of less than 20 mph and electric-assist bikes as long as the motor cuts out at 20 miles an hour. It’s very possible to pedal a bike, without the assistance of any motor, at more than 20 mph. And the law would require users to ride both e-scooters and electric-assist bikes on the road, unless local law allows otherwise. That’s where city laws would come into play. The rules proposed by Mayor Warren would allow for electric scooter and electric bike use on city sidewalks outside of the “central traffic district,” an area roughly delineated by the I-490, the Inner Loop. and North and South Union Street. But there’s a big exception: When there’s a bike lane, cycle track, or some other designated bicycle pathway, bike and scooter users would be required to ride in them. “Their point is obviously to get scooters and bikes off sidewalks as much as possible, but they realize folks are uncomfortable riding in streets without dedicated infrastructure,” says Jesse Peers, cycling coordinator for Reconnect Rochester, an advocacy group that champions walking, biking, transit, and other forms of transportation beyond the personal automobile. Reconnect Rochester representatives and staff, including Peers, have been part of the committee Gruber assembled. Ultimately, Rochester’s e-scooter discussions reflect broader conversations happening in and around cities across the US. The question at the root of it all is how to “safely and efficiently work other modes of transportation,” such as e-scooters, electric-assist bikes, and traditional bikes, into roadways that for decades have been used by motor vehicles almost exclusively, says Arian Horbovetz, a member of the committee and the author of the Urban Phoenix, an urbanism-focused blog. Pedestrian safety is important to consider in developing new “micro-mobility” systems like bike and scooter shares, he says. But the discussions need to acknowledge that cars are the overarching safety threat, not just to pedestrians, cyclists, and scooter riders, but to other drivers as well. And that’s why it’s good for the city to have these discussions before new mobility options like e-scooters become a presence on Rochester’s streets, not after, he says. “We want to make sure we get this right, or as right as we can, before they get rolled out,” Horbovetz says.

And “2034” reflects new interests and new concerns. There’s a consistent focus on the importance of equity, on the value of diversity, on the need for affordable housing. In the discussion of arts and culture, the plan notes the difficulty of funding the arts and recommends that the city consider establishing a “percent for the arts” ordinance, perhaps requiring developers to set aside funding for the arts. It notes concerns about equity in funding for the arts. It recommends creating a Public Art Master Plan. It recommends looking for additional outdoor performance spaces as well as “a covered outdoor space with permanent stage infrastructure for festivals and concert events.” There are sections on water quality, air quality, parks, the urban forest, historic preservation, urban agriculture. There’s a section on climate change, the economy, health. The plan says Rochester needs to be a more walkable city – including in the winter. “Rochester,” it says, “is among only five worldwide cities that have at least 200,000 people and average 100 inches or more of snow during the winter.” It says Rochester should plan less around automobiles and encourage and support other forms of transportation, including public transit and bikes. It has an even-handed section on schools, emphasizing the impact of the city’s concentrated poverty and insisting that “all communities within the region” have to 8 CITY

AUGUST 14 - 20, 2019

recognize their role in creating that poverty and their responsibility for addressing it. It notes that while many students in the district struggle, some students get an excellent education. It endorses the “community school concept,” in which schools serve as neighborhood centers, with services for neighborhood residents. And it recommends that the Rochester school district reexamine its school-choice system and consider reverting to some form of neighborhood school structure. The staff who wrote the plan assume that Rochester’s population will grow, and if that happens, some neighborhoods will need to become more dense. The comprehensive plan recommends that density be encouraged along transit lines. It recommends that in “medium density” neighborhoods (generally, where twofamily residences exist now), the city permit conversions to four-family units. And it recommends that in the future, if the city grows to the point that it might be needed, the city consider permitting one “subordinate” unit – a “granny flat” in the backyard, perhaps – in “low density,” singlefamily neighborhoods. That’s getting strong pushback from some residents in single-family neighborhoods, particularly Browncroft on the city’s east side. Kirkmire emphasizes that “2034” isn’t recommending a zoning change. It’s recommending that the city consider the change if the city’s population grows sufficiently. Right now, she says, “we have room to grow. We have so many vacant lots.” The new comprehensive plan is called “a blueprint for growth.” And Kirkmire is convinced that Rochester’s population will grow. There are certainly signs of growth in downtown and in some neighborhoods, and Kirkmire notes that there’s a lot of interest in city living across the country. Not everybody will be as optimistic about Rochester’s growth as Kirkmire is. The city has lost more than a third of its population since its peak in the 1960’s. That seems to have stabilized now, but even if the population remains flat, the new comprehensive plan can help make the city a better place to live and work. And although the public-comment period for the draft version ends on August 16, there’ll be time for more comments when the Planning Commission and City Council start discussing it.

Pinkies down Aldaskeller Wine Co. pop-up tastings series WEDNESDAY AUGUST 21, 7 TO 11 P.M. SWAN DIVE, 289 ALEXANDER STREET ALDASKELLERWINCO.COM [ CHOW HOUND ] BY RACHEL CRAWFORD

Put that pinky down when you’re sipping from your wine glass, Rochester. Aldaskeller Wine Co. is hosting a new pop-up series at Swan Dive, making wine both more approachable and the life of the party again. The series’ wine curator Brandon Opalich has been working in the service industry for nearly 20 years in New York and various other states. He has worked at the New York Wine and Culinary Center and he has farmed his own produce on his own land. Now, Opalich wants to introduce wine lovers to an inclusive, laid-back vibe. Along with Nick Ryan (collaborator and co-owner of Swan Dive), Dan George (wine distributor of the first pop-up that was held in July), Opalich and Tim Benedict (who pairs the wine selections with light fare) are nuancing the traditional wine experience. “Wine is so bougie –– and that’s ok too, but it doesn’t have to be,” Opalich told CITY at the July pop-up. The first event featured four West Coast natural wines, paired with $1 oysters and pork skewers (good on Benedict, who gave

diners the option of adding an extra zip to the skewers with a spicy rub or a marinade of coconut chili sauce). The pop-ups feature tastings of five wines (two-ounce pours) for $12. Customers can also purchase a single glass of wine or buy a bottle of their favorite. The wines aren’t just paired with food; Opalich also serves up music and nostalgia. During the first pop-up on Swan Dive’s patio, the Aldaskeller team spun West Coast vinyl (from Anderson Paak to Snoop Dogg and Randy Newman) to get people dancing, laughing, and mingling. But just because they’re making fun events doesn’t mean Opalich isn’t a walking

encyclopedia on the realm of wine. He’s loquacious and enthusiastic, and he will tell you as much as you want to know. When asked what makes a wine “natural,” he responded that a natural wine is made with grapes that are organically grown and biodynamically farmed, meaning there are no pesticides or herbicides used on the vineyard. “The wines I showcased at the first popup, they’re low production, and they’re sustainable,” he says. “They’re dry-farmed — no irrigation systems are used. When the wine is being made, they’re using ambient yeast; the farmers don’t buy the yeast, they’re naturally inoculated.”

Opalich refers to them as “renegade winemakers,” referencing the alternative ethos as something similar to that of the DIY punk scene: conscionable and antiestablishment. “I want to make it fun, approachable, and not an intimidating thing for people,” he says. His selection process involves choosing a grape that he likes and finding winemakers who ferment it through a natural process. “Aldaskeller” is the combination between Opalich’s great-aunt’s name (Alda) and the German word for “cellar” (skeller). The name points to the feeling he had as a child, visiting his grandmother’s wine cellar and watching the adults drink wine with slices of messy pizza, the sauce and cheese melting off the crust. Wine at grandma’s house is, for Opalich, the sensory symphony of life best lived: musty cellar smells, grandma’s food, and family laughing (or even fighting) at the kitchen table. In so many words, Opalich says he wants to add as many chairs as possible to this proverbial table and make it as inclusive as possible. The August 21 pop-up will feature Creole food and French wines from the Alsace and Loire Valley regions.

This summer, as Sambit Mohapatra watched the Cricket World Cup on his living room television, his son watched him. Yuvann, shy of his third birthday, didn’t understand everything he was seeing, but his father’s feelings – his shouts and celebratory jumps off their sofa at 6:30 in the morning – were unmistakable. Yuvann started asking, “What is cricket?” This curiosity resurfaced on Saturday mornings when Mohapatra, a member of the Rochester Cricket Club, grabbed a bat and pads before heading out the door. “What is that?” “What is that?” “What is cricket?” Mohapatra is a vice captain and a top batsman for the oldest of Rochester’s four men’s cricket clubs. On summer weekends at Genesee Valley Park, he joins his RCC teammates to face opponents from across Western New York in one of the city’s oldest sporting traditions. Matches unfold over entire afternoons, and when Mohapatra returns home, Yuvann is awaiting a report. “I want to train him to play cricket one day,” Mohapatra, a computer engineer from India who now lives in Henrietta, says. If history is an indicator, this will never happen. For 160 years, cricket has been the province of immigrants in Rochester, yet interest faded for their children. Without the game in schools, cricket lineages end as younger generations gravitate to mainstream American sports. No member of the four current local men’s teams was born in the United States. Today, however, there are signs homegrown cricket is on the upswing. Legislation from Albany may soon bolster existing grassroots efforts to give the world’s second most popular sport a second chance with area youth. Local cricketers no longer just wish their children played cricket; they advocate to make it happen. “I see him holding the bat. I see him with all the cricket conventions,” Mohapatra says of Yuvann. “If he starts liking another game, it would be unfair to push him toward cricket. But since I see this fire in him, since I see a colossal amount of interest in cricket, he will continue to play.”

Mohapatra does not know when RCC will next have an American-born player. Nor does he know if Yuvann will stick with the sport as he grows older. Mohapatra only knows that his son is already asking the right questions. Invented in 17th-century England, cricket is a bat-

and-ball game that stretched to every inch of the former British Empire. In cricket, a bowler hurls a cork ball encased in stitched-up leather toward a batter 22 yards away. The ball usually skips one time on a dirt lane, known as a pitch, before reaching the batsman, whose job, as in baseball, is to hit the ball where the other team isn’t. The flat bat head – slightly concave in the front, with two aerodynamic sides rising toward a center crease in the back – allows batters to spray shots in any direction. No area is foul territory, and the ball can be knocked forward, sideways, or (with deft angling) backwards. Defenders respond by encircling the pitch, nine players staking positions around grass grounds. Their fielding stance is a slight crouch in anticipation before each bowl. The lack of gloves is conspicuous. A cricket ball is firm, and bare-hand catches can leave fingers bruised. If batters make solid contact, they sprint, with bat still in hand, from one end of the pitch to the other until the defense retrieves the ball and fires it back. Each successful trip across the pitch nets one run. Hitting the ball beyond a circular outer boundary scores multiple runs. There are also wickets and overs and something called a golden duck. The structure of the play is still evolving. Test cricket, the sport’s most traditional format, lasts across several days. To fit the sensibilities of modern fans, shorter versions, including T20 and T30, were designed to conclude matches in a single afternoon or evening.

12 CITY AUGUST 14 - 20, 2019

The first-ever cricket match in Rochester sounds miserable. In 1859, two years before the Civil War and a decade before Major League Baseball, an all-star outfit of 12 English cricketers toured five North American cities to “disseminate amongst all classes, that love of ‘England’s pastime,’” Fred Lillywhite, a reporter traveling with the team, wrote in his book “The English Cricketers’ Trip to Canada and the United States.” Sporting bushy sideburns and Victorian neckties, the men rode into Rochester in late October to begin a three-day exhibition against a collection of American and Canadian players. The temperature, according to Lillywhite, was frigid. “Such cricketing weather had never before been experienced,” he wrote. Players wore heavy coats and didn’t know whether their numb, unfeeling hands had successfully caught balls until they actually looked. Many struggled to bend their knuckles to grip bats. One day was called off due to snow. “Immense excitement prevailed,” Lillywhite wrote of the crowd that braved frost to witness this imported game. “But owing to the continued coldness of the weather, little could be done in the shape of showing what cricket was.” Despite imperfect conditions, the English Cricketers piqued local interest. Throughout the late 19th century, Rochesterians attended yearly exhibition matches. In 1911, the Rochester Cricket Club formed on the grounds of Genesee Valley Park, where it still plays today. Since then, Rochester’s immigration history can be traced, in part, through RCC. British expatriates filled rosters in the early decades. Starting mid-20th century, seasonal workers from Britain’s Caribbean colonies began to supplement RCC’s old guard. In the early 1980’s, Roderick Wilson and Mark Welch immigrated to Rochester (Wilson, from Jamaica, worked at a night club; Welch, from Barbados, enrolled in Monroe Community College). And they joined a Caribbean cohort that turned RCC into a powerhouse. “Nobody could beat us,” Wilson says as he sits with Welch feet from the Genesee Valley Park grounds he once ran across. “We didn’t just fool with local teams,” he says. “We were one of the best in North America.” RCC made trips to the Bahamas, Barbados, and St. Vincent to challenge, and often beat, collections of the islands’

best cricketers. RCC home matches, Welch says, attracted more than 2,000 spectators, who lined the grounds of Genesee Valley Park, pitched canopy tents, fired up grills, and turned the air redolent with Caribbean cuisine. “There were bleachers all over,” Wilson adds, pointing to what is now empty grass beyond the cricket grounds. During the years Wilson and Welch were

going toe-to-toe with the top teams in the Western Hemisphere, Mohapatra was a child in the eastern Indian city of Bhubaneswar, dashing from school every afternoon with his older brother to their neighborhood pitch. “People in India don’t need to be told about cricket,” Mohapatra says. “They know it by default.”

Rochester Cricket Club vice captain Sambit Mohapatra

Mohapatra grew into one of Bhubaneswar’s best cricketers and at 16 was asked to compete for his state team. Several years later he met Jangyaseni Mohanty, a fellow computer scientist engineer from a nearby city. They liked rival professional teams and teased each other when one squad topped the other. Mohapatra and Jangyaseni married in June 2012, two months before Mohapatra’s employer, IBM, relocated him to Rochester. Both feared the move might deny them cricket. “With 6 to 7 months of cold, I never expected I’d be able to get any cricket,” Mohapatra says. “But I saw, in Buffalo, Syracuse, Albany, there was cricket all over.” The couple made up the third phase of RCC immigration. Over the past two decades, South Asia has become the dominant source of New York cricketers. Drawn to Rochester for higher education and work, 17 of the team’s current 27 players came from India, a cricketobsessed country of 1 billion. Like her husband, Jangyaseni hopes Yuvaan and his 11-month-old brother Mivaan will help make up a fourth wave of RCC cricketers: those raised in Rochester. It’s the last Saturday of July, a tolerably hot, sunny afternoon at Genesee Valley Park, and RCC is facing the Buffalo Niagara Cricket Club. Both teams wear white tops and white pants, and batters are suited up with full body pads, from their ankles to their chests. RCC breaks a team huddle with a coordinated cheer before taking the field. Buffalo is to bat first.

Roderick Wilson, left, and Mark Welch: As immigrants in the 1980's, they helped turn RCC into a cricket powerhouse.


The first RCC bowler takes a 15-step run up, as if he were charging an Olympic vault, before releasing a one-bouncer at the knees of the Buffalo batter. The batter hits a soft dribbler to his right – not a run-scoring play, but not a dreaded out, either. “Let’s go, let’s go. You have 10 hours,” a Buffalo player calls out from the sidelines. “Ten hours” is hyperbole – an exaggeration to tell his teammate to be patient at bat – but his advice highlights cricket’s leisurely pace. RCC cricket matches usually last around six hours. Every few bowls, a Buffalo batter smacks a ball through a gap between fielders for a run. Scoring a run, or even a few, is viewed by Buffalo teammates with the enthusiasm you might exhibit after finding a dollar on the street: It’s good, but you need a lot of them before it’s meaningful. On this afternoon,

RCC players celebrate an out.

Buffalo is aiming to score at least 150 runs. When RCC makes an out – a fielder snags a ball mid-air, or the bowler makes the batter miss in a certain way – every fielder erupts in a paroxysm of joy: yelps, rapid fist pumps, jumping high-fives that feel discordant given the match’s previous calm. After RCC makes its 10th out, Buffalo is finished batting for the day. Buffalo is stuck on 114 runs, so RCC takes its turn to bat, with 115 as its target. As the match progresses, Divya Nerabetla, a dentist from India who now lives in Webster, stands cheering from just outside the circular boundary of the cricket grounds. Nerabetla’s husband, Ram Desani, is fielding for RCC, and Nerabetla understands the endurance – both physical and mental – that cricket defense requires. In 2016, she and a group of other players’ wives decided they

should do more than watch their spouses play cricket. “We should start doing this,” Nerabetla remembers thinking. She now captains RCC’s women’s team, a 10-person squad that competes every August at the Rustic Village Tournament in Henrietta. Two members of the women’s team, Brighton High School students Bhuvana Chimmiri and Dhaanya Ghanta, grew up in Rochester. From an early age, their fathers introduced them to the sport. In India, women have historically been kept away from cricket, but gender exclusions are breaking down. “My friends go, ‘Oh, I didn’t know cricket was a huge thing here,” Chimmiri says. “Since a lot of them play baseball or softball, they are very interested in knowing more.” The men’s match enters its third hour, and

Mark Welch and Roderick Wilson sit on one of the ground’s few remaining bleachers, recalling past players and critiquing the current ones. “Did the batter forget he is supposed to be scoring runs?” Wilson asks out of the batter’s earshot. “You can’t score every time, Roderick,” Welch responds. At 58, Welch has an emeritus roster spot and serves as club president. He has three children, none of whom play cricket. To build stronger youth participation, Welch and other RCC members give cricket clinics at area schools, but he believes more cricket pitches are needed to sustain substantial interest. Genesee Valley Park has the only public pitch in Monroe County, but that might soon change. In June, the New York state legislature approved a bill that would establish an Empire State Cricket Task Force. Citing the game’s economic potential, the bill says the task force will “conduct a comprehensive study and create

strategies to promote the game of cricket in New York State.” The bill’s co-sponsors envision a future where cricket tournaments play out in area stadiums, drawing fans and tax revenue. “I think we all know when a sports event comes into a community, there is a big economic boost in terms of hotels, restaurants, and just getting to know the area,” Assembly member Karen McMahon, a Democrat representing sections of Erie County, says. “So it could be a part of a tourism strategy down the road.” After glimpsing an early draft of the bill on a colleague’s desk, McMahon asked to be a co-sponsor. With many cricket-playing constituents, she hoped a prospective task force would have at least some Western New York representation. The legislation awaits final approval from Governor Andrew Cuomo, who is expected to sign by the end of the year. “Much of its impact remains to be seen,” McMahon says of the task force, which would be the first of its kind in the country. “The more people know about cricket,” she says, “the more popular it can be. And maybe at some point they go beyond teaching clinics and establish youth leagues.” An ideal candidate for any local little league cricket is Arjun Saduvu. A rising third grader in Pittsford, Arjun already plays little league baseball and dreams of being on the Boston Red Sox team. He also owns a starter cricket bat and absorbed World Cup broadcasts with a fervor even his father Vijay, a life-long cricket fan, couldn’t muster. Like many his age, Arjun has split sporting allegiances. At the RCC-Buffalo match, he stands by his father Vijay, an IT programmer from Hyderabad, India, who manages RCC’s men’s team. Arjun wears a cricket jersey and an adult helmet that swallows his face as he studies the game through the helmet’s metal mask. “Keeper is my favorite position,” Arjun says of the position most akin to the catcher in baseball. “You get the ball a lot of times.” Earlier this month, Arjun captained a team of child cricketers at the Rustic Village tournament. Around 30 children competed that day, the highest total in the tournament’s 16-year history. Vijay has tentative hopes that his son’s passion will last beyond his adolescence. In addition to two players on the women’s team, four men’s players on Rochester’s newest cricket team – the Rochester Greens Cricket Club – moved to the United States before the age of 10. “Now, younger people are starting to play more,” Vijay says. “If he were in India, I could see him as a professional cricketer. But we are here. So we have to see.”

‘All Good’ Self-released bennybeyond.bandcamp.com

Ave. 258-0400. 7 p.m.

Ben Kruger has been grinding in Rochester for years, a prolific contributor to local music and arts community. As emcee Benny Beyond, his hip-hop debut “All Good” comes correct with his brand of altruistic philosophy. A year and half in the making, the album takes on the attitude of hype music, but with a sincere, kick-back aggression. Benny’s distinctively poetic lyricism allows for easy pivots between passive and active engagement with the songs. “Paintbrush” is a trance-like, psycho-spiritual anthem beckoning to be instantly rewound. And the production by Chris Vandeviver is textured with a flavorful fidelity, reflecting the pop music aesthetic it no doubt finds inspiration in. “All Good” is available on Spotify, Apple Music, and in limited physical copies via Bandcamp. — BY HASSAN ZAMAN

Catatac ‘Timensions’ Self-released soundcloud.com/catatacmusic

Local singer-guitarist Peter Sapia and production master Tim O’Rourke worked in similar musical circles before joining forces in 2017 under the moniker Catatac. The group’s sophomore album, “Timensions,” is an existential embrace of the inevitable relationship between humans and technology. Combining EDM, chillwave, jazz, and pop, Catatac builds an iridescent kaleidoscope of electronic textures in “Timensions.” The music features catchy beats, arpeggiated keyboard arrangements, heavy electronic vocal effects, and synth-tinged guitar solos. Thematically, the duo creates fictional stories as metaphors for our ever-growing reliance on technology and desperation for real human interaction. “Enigmagraph” is about a super computer becoming self-aware by rearranging bits of information that were carelessly left in its code by its creator. “GPS” is a love song that blurs the lines between absurdity and reality by demonstrating how our personal identities are increasingly becoming tied to machines. “Timensions” is available on Spotify. — BY KATIE HALLIGAN

Liberty and justice for all? “What to the Refugee is the 4th of July?” FRIDAY, AUGUST 16, 6:30 TO 9:30 P.M. GALLERY SEVENTY-FOUR, 215 TREMONT STREET, BUILDING 3, FLOOR 3 $5, REGISTER AT WHATTOTHEREFUGEEISTHE4THOFJULY.BPT.ME [ PREVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

When we applaud historical figures for their bold words or heroic actions, we often forget to consider whether we would stand with them in their efforts today, and if there are modern applications to the struggles they endured. Take Lewis Hine’s photography, which shed light on the dangerous conditions of workers, including children. His work educated and moved viewers so effectively that it contributed to changes in labor laws. But many protections of American law only extend to citizens; non-citizen workers remain 18 CITY AUGUST 14 - 20, 2019

vulnerable to abuses, and can become even more vulnerable if they complain. An upcoming event in the “At the Crossroads” art and community conversation series centers on this concept of applying historic activism to the current struggles of vulnerable groups. “What to the Refugee is the 4th of July” is inspired by Frederick Douglass’s famous speech, “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July,” which he delivered to the Rochester Ladies’ Anti-Slavery Society in 1852. That speech remains “one of the most powerful critiques on the disconnect between the inalienable rights declared to be endowed by the creator to white men, in juxtaposition with the simultaneous dehumanization and brutal enslavement of Black people,” said the event organizer, Rachel DeGuzman, in a provided statement. In America today, many refugees, recent immigrants, and first-generation Americans are in crisis, she says. In the interest of elevating the voices of these marginalized groups, “What to the

Refugee is the 4th of July” will be held in collaboration with Rochester organization Refugees Helping Refugees. The event will begin with a collaborative art-making project directed by artist and new American citizen Tania Day-Magallon (whose own solo show, “The Divine Feminine and Goddess,” is currently on display at The MuCCC, 142 Atlantic Avenue). Day-Magallon will lead the event’s participants and attendees in the ritual of stenciling overlapping hands (as found in cave paintings), which symbolizes community and is inspired by ancient art made before territorial borders were established, DeGuzman says. This will be followed by a reading of Douglass’s speech by Douglass reenactor David Shakes, after which the Long Table Conversation will begin. All of this event’s conversation starters are women who are either refugees, immigrants, or first-generation Americans: Pyar Mo, Pamela Adams, Mai Abdullah, Tania Day-Magallon, Lisa Kim, Ana Gomez Parga, and N’Jelle Gage-Thorne.

Keith L. Williams, Jacob Tremblay, and Brady Noon in “Good Boys.” PHOTO COURTESY UNIVERSAL PICTURES

Pint-sized pals “Good Boys” (R), DIRECTED BY GENE STUPNITSKY OPENS FRIDAY, AUGUST 16 [ PREVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW

I’ll be the first to admit it: hearing little kids swear is pretty funny. But the juxtaposition between naughty words and cherubic faces will only get you so far. Luckily the new comedy “Good Boys” has more to offer than the sight of pint-size star Jacob Tremblay dropping F-bombs, and wraps its hijinks around a core of genuine sweetness. Tremblay plays Max, one-third of “The Beanbag Boys,” a title he shares with his best buds Lucas (Keith L. Williams) and Thor (Brady Noon). The tween trio do everything together, and when they land an invitation to their first “kissing party” there’s a lot riding on the impression they hope to make there. Especially for Max, who wants nothing more than to finally get the attention of his crush, Brixlee (Millie Davis). In an effort to pick up some tips, the boys borrow Max’s dad’s (Will Forte) drone to spy on their more experienced teenage neighbor and her friend (Molly Gordon and Midori 20 CITY AUGUST 14 - 20, 2019

[ SUN., AUGUST 18 ] Guided Walking Tour. 2 p.m Mount Hope Cemetery, 791 Mt Hope Ave. $10. fomh.org.

Francis). But the plan goes sideways and the drone is destroyed, forcing Max, Lucas, and Thor to undertake an epic cross-town quest to replace it before Max’s dad returns home from his business trip. Along the way there’s frat house drug deals, death-defying sprints across the highway, and annoyingly knowledgeable kid sisters. It’s an awful lot to handle for middle schoolers already navigating the hormone-addled world of 6th grade. “Good Boys” is set in that nebulous period of childhood when once inseparable friends start developing their own distinct interests outside the group, and youthful friendships transition to the more complicated variety that come with the onset of adolescence. Whether consciously or not, Max and his friends are feeling as much anxiety over their evolving friendship as they are about their discovery of the opposite sex. The boys are just beginning to grasp the idea that friendships change over time, a concept which gives director Gene Stupnitsky and his writing partner Lee Eisenberg (“Bad Teacher”) a lot of fruitful thematic terrain to explore. The script gets a lot of mileage out of the boys’ general cluelessness about the mysterious, grownup world that exists just beyond their realm of comprehension. As

much as they may pretend to know what they’re talking about, they have fundamental misunderstanding of sex and all that goes with it. After all, this is still a group of kids whose most fearsome opponent remains the childproof top on a bottle of vitamins. For all the filthy situations the Bean Bag Boys find themselves in, the film makes it clear these are good kids at heart. Deftly weaving in ideas about consent and bullying in among the foul-mouthed adventures, the script doesn’t have to strain too hard to work in a few genuine messages. And while the humor and pacing isn’t always consistent, the film’s still funny as hell. “Good Boys” counters all its raunchiness with an inherent sweetness that — beyond the gross-out jokes — manages to say something significant about childhood friendships and the growth that’s required to make them last. Even when life leads us on diverging, unpredictable paths, there remains a special, one-of-a-kind quality to the friendships we have when we’re kids. As Richard Dreyfuss says in the final lines of the coming-of-age classic “Stand By Me”: “I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?” An extended version of this review is online at rochstercitynewspaper.com.
