The facts about impeachment

In his Feedback letter “Impeachment? Not Now,” David Hennelly has his facts wrong. Impeachment is one of “The rules of the game all agreed to abide by.” Hennelly is also wrong when he writes that when Richard Nixon faced impeachment, “The significant drag was the very long and inconclusive Vietnam War.” Nixon faced impeachment because the burglars, who were caught when they broke into the Democratic National Committee’s office in the Watergate complex in Washington, were members of Richard Nixon’s reelection campaign. And last but not least, Hennelly is wrong when he writes that an “unelected cabal” would decide whether Donald Trump should be removed from office. The members of Congress and the Senate vote for impeachment, not an “unelected cabal.” THOMAS MANGAN

New York’s abortion laws

As Jeremy Moule recently outlined (“Advocates, Lawmakers Push for Abortion Law Vote”), the Reproductive Health Act again failed to become law in New York State, despite its passage multiple times in the Assembly. The RHA potentially harms and exploits women and completely ignores the existence of unborn human life. Unlike the Assembly, the Senate understands the implications of the RHA. 2 CITY

SEPTEMBER 12 - 18, 2018

While Governor Cuomo, pro-choice groups, and others are clamoring to enact the RHA , even calling upon the Senate to return to Albany to pass it, their cries ring hollow, as they should. They fear an overturned Roe vs. Wade and claim that New York State’s abortion law desperately needs modernizing, to move from the penal to the public health law. They think the RHA will solve their dilemma. But as Moule highlighted, since 1970 abortion has been statutorily legal in New York State for any reason through 24 weeks of pregnancy. New York is ahead of the curve regarding liberal abortion laws, except for the lack of a broad heath exception for late-term abortions. Broad health exceptions, which include mental, economic, and familial health, essentially allow women to abort fully viable “fetuses” – aka unborn children – for any reason. The RHA contains a broad health exception. Modern US Supreme Court decisions post-Roe, however, refrain from requiring a broad health exception in bans on late-term abortion. The RHA more than simply codifies Roe. The bill glosses over and disregards post-Roe constitutional law allowing states to enact abortion laws protecting women’s health and unborn human life, and fundamental standards, including those requiring that licensed physicians perform abortions, wait periods between the abortion decision and the procedure, and parental notification where minors seek abortions. The RHA does not require any wait periods or parental involvement. Rather, it allows non-physicians to perform surgical abortions up through the ninth month of pregnancy. According to polling data released by the Chiaroscuro Foundation, 75 percent of New Yorkers disagree with changing the law so that non-doctors can perform surgical abortions, 78

percent support a 24-hour wait period, and 76 percent agree that parents should be notified when minors seek abortions. Lastly, the RHA completely severs abortion from the penal code. This general removal, however, potentially re-victimizes victims of sex trafficking and domestic violence by depriving victims of opportunities to hold their abusers criminally accountable for coerced abortions. Studies show both categories of females experience coerced abortions. Rather than ‘liberate’ women, the RHA restrains women and negates the existence of unborn human life throughout pregnancy. Senate Republicans, along with Senate Democrat Simcha Felder, clearly comprehend the fallacy of the RHA. MICHELE STERLACE-ACCORSI

The press and democracy

We have all read the catch phrase “Life is not a spectator sport.” Never before have we had more opportunities to make life just that. We love the drama as it plays out on screens held in our palms, on our walls. It is well packaged to please the buyer, safely, at a distance. As the debacle of byproduct reality TV plays out before us in real time, we snuggle down inside our lives, and some of us become complacent. This is the point at which we awaken, splash cold water on our faces, and come to the realization that being steeped in and desensitized to all of the vitriol is rotting our sense of reason and good judgment. Insidious and blissfully complacent, we become complicit. All of us must rise to this occasion and opportunity to be defenders of the free and democratic society we were born into. A free and open press is of the utmost importance to ensure our democracy survives and again, someday soon, thrives. JOHN VAN LARE

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER

Donald Trump, Congress, and the Constitution Depressing things I’ve read in the past week: • Reports, by Bob Woodward and Anonymous Op-ed, confirming that Donald Trump’s behavior is as troubling as we’ve heard; • News indicating that the Republicans in Congress and many voters don’t care. The importance of what Anonymous wrote has been overshadowed a bit by a debate over whether Anonymous is a coward because he or she prefers to remain Anonymous. Should Anonymous have resigned and then gone public? I don’t know; at least we know that a few people in the White House are trying to resist, on occasion. That’s more than what we’re seeing happen among the Republicans in Congress. The more important thing is that Anonymous and Woodward have added to the evidence: The country is led by a volatile, immature man who either doesn’t understand the basic principles of the government he heads or doesn’t care about them and doesn’t intend to uphold them. And at the moment, there’s not much anybody can do about it. Democrats can posture all they like, but Donald Trump will serve out his term. Some members of his administration may be trying to undermine him, but if they tried to remove him using the process spelled out in the Constitution’s 25th Amendment, two-thirds of the House and two-thirds of the Senate would have to approve. If the House impeached him, twothirds of the Senate would have to vote to remove him. That won’t happen. Even if the Democrats take back both the House and the Senate, it’s not likely to be by that big a margin. And Republicans in Congress have made it clear: Some of them may think he’s not fit to serve, but most of them are happy with his record. The odds are, then, that Donald Trump will be president at least through 2020. The salvation: the November 6 Congressional election. This is just a terrible, terrible time. Voters can dismiss people like Woodward and Anonymous, but it’s hard to do that with members of the federal intelligence community, who have been writing their own op-eds and signing statements expressing their concerns about President Trump. They, too, have been criticized. But in a sobering Washington Post oped over the weekend, former CIA Deputy Director John McLaughlin explained their actions. “For many of us,” McLaughlin

The odds are that Donald Trump will be president at least through 2020. The salvation: the November 6 Congressional election wrote, “keeping our mouths shut about what we see in our own country would be akin to not alerting our government to a threat from abroad.” “Failure to warn,” McLaughlin wrote, “is the ultimate sin in the intelligence world. It feels equally sinful in the world of citizenship.” People in the intelligence communities have studied countries where democracy and the rule of law “don’t exist or are under attack,” McLaughlin said. “So our senses are finely tuned to the classic warning signs: attacks on institutions, neutralization of opponents, cowed legislatures, publics numbed by repeated falsehoods.” “All of these are now visible here to various degrees,” McLaughlin said. “While others may say our democracy can’t erode that way, we know we’ve heard that before, somewhere else. The stakes are too high for complacency here.” The stakes are apparently not too high for the Republicans in Congress, at least not yet. Congress can’t change the president’s behavior, but it can help mitigate the results of it. The country will likely have to wait until the end of Donald Trump’s first term to get a new president. It doesn’t have to wait until then to get a new Congress. rochestercitynewspaper.com

COUNTY GOVERNMENT | BY JEREMY MOULE

Bello versus the GOP County Clerk Adam Bello, a Democrat, and Brian Marianetti, leader of the County Legislature’s Republic caucus, are having a war of words over how clerk’s office employees handled some sensitive documents. The quarrel goes back to May, when WHEC reporter Berkeley Brean got a tip that Bello’s Henrietta DMV branch was improperly disposing of items containing sensitive personal information, including names, addresses, and Social Security numbers. In a trash receptacle outside the Henrietta office, Brean’s source had found a variety of documents, including an employee time card, voter registration cards, and three registration requests from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office for undercover cars. Brean then checked the trash outside of the Greece DMV office, where he found nothing, and the Irondequoit office, where he found a smaller set of documents containing personal information. After he reported on the findings, Bello started an internal review and changed office procedures, and Marianetti asked the county Office of Public Integrity to investigate. The OPI’s report was released recently, and Marianetti blasted Bello over its conclusions and called on hm to take corrective action. He also accused Bello of making misleading statements about the extent of the problem right after Brean’s report. Bello initially said one clerk and a substitute custodian seemed to be the employees who mishandled the documents; the OPI report says the full collection of documents points to eight or nine employees. But the OPI report also acknowledges that Bello was working with limited information. His initial review was based on the few documents Brean showed him from the Henrietta office, which were just part of what Brean had. The OPI report acknowledges that Bello “and his management staff took immediate and substantive corrective action regarding the handling of protected and personal information at all county branches of DMV.” It recommends that those processes be “codified” and continued. It also makes a few other recommendations dealing with policies and training practices. In a statement responding to the report and Marianetti, Bello said that “four out of the five steps identified by the OPI are initiatives that my office has recommended and are currently implementing.”

Paley focuses on design

Examples of Albert Paley’s distinctive sculpture are in government and corporate office buildings, and on city sidewalks and bridges. They’re in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian, Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, London’s Victoria and Albert. Now, Paley is downsizing: “restructuring,” he says. He’s not renewing the lease on the largest of his three studios, the 40,000-square-foot space on Lyell Avenue, when it expires a year and a half from now. That’s where the fabrication is done on his largescale, site-specific pieces. He’ll continue to create those, but he’ll outsource the fabrication. The goal, he said in an interview early this week, is to focus his attention, time, and energy more on the aesthetics of his work and on independent design. Right now, Paley and his 14 employees have four commissions under way, exhibitions in Germany and Australia, more exhibitions coming up, and “probably 50 or 60 sculptures, plus decorative arts –

sculptures, lamps, tables – that are in process right now,” he said. Education is “fundamental” to his studio work, and he’s artist in residence at the Rochester Institute of Technology and lectures “about every month” at museums and universities, which he’ll continue to do, he said. He’ll be 76 years old when the Lyell Avenue lease is up. “And a lot of these large projects take three to five years to do,” he said, “with feasibility studies and the design phase and all of the structural engineering. So I’m trying to be mindful of time.” “The business aspect and the logistics take maybe 85 percent of my time,” he said. That hasn’t left much time for “the artistic and the creative endeavor.” “The whole reason I started studio work to begin with,” he said, “was I was trained in the fine arts, and all I wanted to do was to design and make things.”

City officials say that creating a site for homeless people to form an encampment will make it easier for social services providers to work with a hard-to-serve population. The project’s ultimate goal is to help as many of the residents as possible move into housing.

HOMELESSNESS | BY JEREMY MOULE

City prepares for encampment move The deadline Spectrum set for residents of an encampment on its property on Mt. Hope Avenue has passed and the people are still there, but not for long. The residents have begun packing up their things and preparing to move to a new site at Industrial Street. Alex Yudelson, chief of staff to Mayor Lovely Warren, says the encampment residents will likely start moving in on September 17, and that Spectrum is OK with their continued temporary presence. City crews have been doing some basic landscaping work at the site – previously a barren gravel lot – to make it suitable for the incoming tenants, Yudelson says. Workers have been laying sod, planting a few large trees, and putting a fence around the site, he says. Spectrum tried to force out the twoyear-old encampment in April, but advocates and activists showed up and blocked the attempt. They then approached city officials about establishing a dedicated encampment site. Warren sent the proposal to City Council, and though some Council members had concerns, they approved the project – with a condition. They asked that the advocates for the encampment residents

establish a formal, structured organization composed of representatives from service agencies, shelter operators, adjacent neighborhoods, and City Council. “It provides some level of accountability where if this ends up not working, we have an opportunity to assess it and address it,” says City Council member Mitch Gruber. City Roots Community Land Trust has taken ownership of the property. St. Joseph’s House of Hospitality and House of Mercy will handle day-today operations at the site. The site will have water, provided by St. Joe’s, and portable toilets, provided by a donor, says City Council member Elaine Spaull, who is serving as liaison to the management organization. And Open

Door Mission will be letting residents use its showers for a two-hour period each day, she says. The project is meant to make it easier for social-service providers to contact and build relationships with the residents, Gruber and Spaull say. And the ultimate goal is to help the residents move into housing, they say. The encampment is not a perfect solution, Spaull says. It’s a pilot project that should be viewed as the community’s best attempt at addressing a difficult problem. And if successful, Spaull says, it could be a model for other cities. If there are safety problems, they’ll be addressed, she says. “Every person is a person, and it’s an act of humanity,” Spaull says.

POLITICS | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER

Primary matters It’s on an unusual day, but there are political party primaries on Thursday, September 13, for several key local and state offices. Although elections are almost always on Tuesday, this one’s on Thursday because Tuesday was the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks (which in 2001 was an election day) and it was the last night of Rosh Hashanah. The most publicized races on Thursday’s ballot are the Democratic races for New York governor, lieutenant governor, and attorney general, and, locally, for Rochester school board and the 136th state Assembly seat now occupied by Joe Morelle, who is running for Congress. (City’s online coverage of those races: rochestercitynewspaper.com.) But there’s a long list of candidates for other elected positions. There are Democratic Party contests for the 133rd state Assembly seat (Ann Lewis versus incumbent David Gantt), City Court Judge (Michael Lopez versus Gil Perez), and numerous Democratic Committee positions. Republicans also have a primary: Marjorie Byrnes is challenging incumbent Joe Errigo for the 133rd state Assembly seat (Livingston County and parts of Monroe and Steuben Counties.) And there’s an Independence Party primary for Fairport Village mayor and trustee. Polls are open from noon to 9 p.m. You must be enrolled in a party to vote in its primary.

SEPTEMBER 12 - 18, 2018

For years, workers and advocates at some area homeless shelters have said that the county has been too harsh with its sanctions, stripping housing, utility, and emergency food benefits from public-assistance recipients. The county can sanction recipients for any number of reasons. Sometimes it’s because they don’t meet work requirements or because they fail drug tests. But in making their point, advocates have had to rely largely on anecdotal evidence. They’ve relayed stories of people losing benefits because they messed up some paperwork or missed a bus and didn’t make it to an appointment. But a recent report from Nazareth College sociology professor Harry Murray put some numbers to the issue. He used publicly available data from the state to calculate and compare sanction rates for Monroe, Erie, and Onondaga counties, as well as for New York City. The counties and New York City serve as social services districts. Murray’s report says that between 2005 and 2017, Monroe County went from being tied for the lowest sanction rate to having the highest rate in the state. Murray’s report also points out that Monroe County has consistently denied 70 percent to 80

percent of completed public assistance applications, a number higher than any of the other districts he looked at. “I think it shows that Monroe County has been much more punitive than the other three major urban counties,” Murray said during an interview last week. James Murphy, a Catholic Worker at St. Joseph’s House of Hospitality, which runs a shelter during Rochester’s colder months, says the findings “went beyond our worst fears. Sanctions can put people at risk of eviction and homeless, since they strip away housing assistance, Murphy and Murray say. The punitive loss of benefits can also make it hard for people who are already homeless to find a bed in a homeless shelter, since some of the facilities rely on county reimbursement for each person they house. House of Mercy and St. Joe’s House of Hospitality end up taking in many of the people with sanctions, since neither shelter relies on or accepts government funding. Open Door Mission also ends up taking in quite a few people who are sanctioned. “We’re really penalizing people who need help the most,” Murphy says. County officials, however, believe the report is not accurate. They’ve discussed it with representatives from the state Office of

Temporary and Disability Assistance, which sets regulations on the acceptance and denial of applications for public benefits, as well as for sanctions. The agency representatives said they have no concerns about the way Monroe County has implemented those regulations and they assured officials that “Monroe County is not an outlier compared to its peers,” says county spokesperson Jesse Sleezer. The agency representatives also told county officials that some of the information may be taken out of context, Sleezer said. But he wouldn’t identify specific examples. “The conversation also included some speculation that, to the extent that Monroe County’s numbers may be different than some other counties, it could be possible that the county is simply following the state regulations as prescribed,” Sleezer says. Murray says he stands by his work and points out that he used publicly available data from Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance to calculate the rates. The sanction data is the most complex, since he analyzed three different categories across a span of more than a decade. For each jurisdiction, he calculated the rate for all sanctions. In 2017, Monroe County had a monthly average 25,077 public assistance recipients and 4.94


percent of them had received some sort of sanction, according to the report. By comparison, Erie County had a sanction rate of 2.36 percent, Onondaga County had a 3.49 percent rate, and New York City had a 1.59 percent rate. Monroe County’s rate increased overall since 2005, while the rates decreased in the other three jurisdictions, the report says. Murray also calculated rates of “durational employment sanctions” and “durational drug and alcohol violations.” In those two categories, public assistance recipients have their benefits suspended for a set period of time, typically between one and six months. Monroe County’s 2017 durational drug and alcohol sanction rate, and the number of people under sanction on an average monthly basis, was higher than in the other two counties and New York City, says the report. The case was similar with the durational employment sanctions, though the New York City numbers are less reliable. A 2015 law changed how the city can handle those sanctions, which drastically reduced the numbers. Murray and Murphy would like to see the law expanded statewide; Assembly bill A3611 would do that, Murphy says. Murray’s report doesn’t make any concrete assertions as to why Monroe County’s rates are high, but it does call for “a serious study of the actual implementation of sanction policy in Monroe County compared to the other counties.” Murray and his report say county policies and practices are likely responsible for the rates to some degree. It could be using durational sanctions when the other counties and New York City use non-durational sanctions, meaning people’s benefits resume once they rectify a violation. In other words, if someone misses or fails a drug test, the benefits would resume once they take or pass the drug test, not after a set time period. Monroe County and state officials should also evaluate whether county practices are contributing to homelessness, Murray says. As St. Joe’s opened its shelter for the winter last year, workers immediately faced a demand for beds that exceeded the place’s permitted capacity. Workers found that during those initial weeks, about one-third of the people seeking shelter were under durational drug and alcohol sanctions, Murphy says. The shelter opens for the year in October, and workers are expecting overflow demand again, Murphy says. He believes that county public assistance sanctions will be a factor. “People don’t get the help they need,” Murphy says.

Flower power Cannabis Cur.es 4 PUBLIC MARKET THURSDAY THROUGH SUNDAY, 10 A.M. TO 2 P.M., AND BY APPOINTMENT FREEOFTHC.COM [ PROFILE ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

After stopping for a coffee at Fuego’s Rochester Public Market stand on a recent Saturday morning, I turned around and my eyes fell on a table filled with wares that my pre-caffeine eyes had missed before. There were jars of grass- and amber-hued cooking oils, bags of hemp flower tea and cannabis infused coffee, roll-on cannabidiol aromatherapy body oils, and plastic poptop vials with single, pre-rolled hemp flower joints inside. The apothecary-like stand, Cannabis Cur.es, functions as the storefront for Michael Iuliucci’s company, Navitas, which offers an array of cannabis-derived products, with a specific focus on cannabidiol (CBD).

Iuliucci, who owns Navitas and runs the market storefront with Kelly Brown, is one of a number of entrepreneurs who are working to better understand the medicinal properties offered by a much maligned plant. He founded Navitas after years of struggling to treat his anxiety-induced seizures. CBD is one of more than 100 known naturally-occurring cannabinoids found in cannabis, along with the plant’s most famous, intoxicating chemical, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Because CBD isn’t an intoxicant — it won’t get you high — CBD is legal to use, provided that whatever product it’s in contains under .3 percent of THC. (Cannabis has been declared an illegal, Schedule 1 drug, so the plant is on shaky ground as far as federal regulation goes, but it’s being sold in states where medical cannabis is legal). “Over seven years ago I found out that CBD helped me personally, but I didn’t really know how,” Iuliucci says. “I have seizures triggered at the sight of blood. I can get a cut on my hand and just faint and have a seizure. But a year-and-a-half ago I delivered my son on the side of the expressway without any

seizure symptoms because of the hemp plant.” Iuliucci says he figured out that he needed high levels of cannabinoids in his system, but not high levels of THC, and began sourcing CBD to treat himself. But he says he found there was poor availability and poor quality, and that “99 percent of the time you don’t know what you’re getting.” He decided to leave his job as an industrial manufacturer sales rep to help develop the underexplored cannabinoid industry in New York State. Discovered in 1940, CBD was not initially thought to have medicinal benefits, but in recent years scientists and doctors have been studying and prescribing it and other chemicals isolated from cannabis to treat various diseases and ailments. In 2018 the FDA approved the use of CBD as a prescription drug called Epidiolex to treat two rare forms of childhood epilepsy. And in 2005 Canada approved Sativex, which contains both CBD and THC, to treat pain associated with multiple sclerosis. Though Iuliucci isn’t a medical professional, and the farm-grade products he offers aren’t FDA approved, he can informally

advise customers about what kind of product they might try based on their description of an ailment. Customers come to him with a range of issues, from anxiety to inflammation, or the desire to lose weight or kick substance abuse. CBD has been noted by some doctors who work with medical cannabis to function as an appetite suppressant in some patients and Iuliucci says some people have replaced smoking cigarettes with cannabis cones. Just like using any herbal supplement as a therapeutic substance, it’s up to individual consumers to decide what works for them. But Iuliucci recommends directing concerns and specific questions to a doctor who works in the growing cannabinoid-as-medicine field. The field of cannabinoid studies is still very experimental, because it’s still such an under-examined plant. But CBD won’t hurt you, Iuliucci says, adding that our bodies have a natural endocannabinoid production system. When you have a “runner’s high” you produce your own cannabinoids, and breast milk has cannabinoids in it as well, he says. CBD is so safe that Iuluicci and Brown rub the topical product on their kids’ feet at night. And Iuliucci has been working with Dr. Harold Smith, a professor of biochemistry and biophysics at the University of Rochester Medical Center, to further understand the medicinal applications of cannabinoids. Smith is in the process of designing tests with human DNA to show efficacy of cannabinoids on certain ailments, Iuliucci says. This will also eventually help people figure out the levels of their individual intake of cannabinoids should be, he says. For the time being Iuliucci imports hemp flower products from Whole Circle Farms in Silverton, Oregon, but he is in discussions to also source hemp flowers locally from a farm in Canandaigua. And he sources his infused products through licensed company Hemp Empire in Holley, located in neighboring Orleans County. There’s a number of ways that CBD can be consumed or taken into the body. You can smoke hemp flowers in dried form or as a vapor, use extract-infused cooking oils in meal prep, ingest it through steeping the dried flowers and leaves as a tea, and take it topically — a colleague of mine uses CBD ointment recommended by her physical therapist as partial treatment for a knee injury.

continued from page 10

A lot of the literature in translation that Americans read was written by dead white

men. The names of these literary giants are inscribed on our libraries and universities. Sophocles, Homer, Virgil, Chaucer, Milton, and Cervantes have reached audiences of myriad languages. What we call the “human” condition has been predominantly defined by male writers. But the Anglo or European cis male narrative has monopolized readers’ consciousness for centuries. Reading contemporary women authors in translation give us a perspective that diverges from the both European and male-dominated canon. What if, instead of reading from the perspective of the Homeric hero, who often captures, enslaves, and rapes the maiden, we had read the captive maiden’s story? For every page written by tragedians like Euripides — who describes the wife as a thing for housekeeping — a woman’s voice was silenced on the gender violence of that era. Even when women are the central characters in male-authored literature, the woman’s experience can hardly be conveyed by the author — and consequently, hardly experienced by the reader. In Tolstoy’s “Anna Karenina” for example, a man’s infidelity is all but celebrated, while Anna’s affair prompts more than accusations of scandal — her person is reduced to insanity and even demonic possession before she kills herself. Examples of the portrait of the woman exploitatively painted by the male author are endless. Today, activists use the expression “pass the mic” to encourage testimony that comes directly from the person being marginalized. Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper” initiated nuanced conversation in the late nineteenth century on the general attitude toward the stereotyped madwoman, not only because the work was viscerally unnerving, but because it was a rare glimpse into the interiority of women’s emotional imprisonment. Reading contemporary literature in translation by women normalizes gendered experiences in the same way. “The Passion According to G.H.,” written by Brazilian author Clarice Lispector, gives the first person account of a woman who has an existential crisis after killing a cockroach. And whether or not the narrator’s crisis has any relation to her gender, it serves as proof that a woman has the intellectual capacity to create a soul as tormented and disturbing as the characters in Edgar Allan Poe’s works. Reading these international stories in the English would not be possible without the art of translation, and many of Rochester’s literary translators are focusing more on women authors. 12 CITY SEPTEMBER 12 - 18, 2018

ROCHESTER-BASED TRANSLATORS WEIGH IN Lytton Smith

In addition to being an associate professor in English at SUNY Geneseo and having published three poetry collections, Lytton Smith also translates from the Icelandic. Smith says that Iceland is the land of fire and ice — of extremes — and the language is one of the oldest in the world that has been continuously written in literature. “The country is isolated but a middle-ground, both geographically and geologically,” he says, as it is divided by the North American Plate and the Eurasian Plate. He adds that Iceland is remarkably progressive and one of the most feminist countries in the world. It has one of the highest rates of single-motherhood because single mothers are supported financially and socially — it’s a choice women can make. “And in the 70’s the women handed children to the men-folk, refusing to cook and clean in protest of the wage gap,” he says. (At that time, women earned less than 60 percent of what men earned.)

PHOTO BY JACOB WALSH

Smith says that translating women is listening to women’s voices. When it comes to literature, he says that Iceland is a place where women’s voices have always mattered: “In their sagas, when a female character speaks, everyone shuts up and listens. Even now, the most meaningful characters are often mothers and daughters,” and reading them from a woman’s perspective is important. In August of 2018 Smith received a grant from the National Endowment of the Arts to translate “Blot” by Sígrun Pálsdóttir. He is also currently writing a collection of poems titled “The After,” which focuses on recent, global protest movements.

Kaija Straumanis

The only Latvian work of literature that has been published in the United States in English was translated by Kaija Straumanis: her translation of Inga Ābele’s “High Tide” was published in 2013 by Open Letter Books and won the 2015 AATSEEL Book Award for Best Translation. “There are plenty of male authors in Latvia whose works I admire,” she says. “But the number of female authors whose works really resonate with me is much higher. There’s something undeniably different about the undertones of how these women are writing, something that’s kind of earthy, grounded, richly real, in a way that is ‘Mother Earth-y’ without the overbearing cliché part. It’s a connection, a literary one, that I as a reader experience that reaches beyond Latvia. The narratives and the feeling I’m left with after reading these female authors is like someone struck a tuning fork right by my ear and I can hear and feel the resonating hum for days and weeks after.” Straumanis says that the setting of Latvian literature often takes place in the Soviet or post-Soviet era. “I wish that the works were appreciated for the merit itself,” she says. “The country hasn’t been independent for that long. ‘High Tide’ is one of the first books that was like that — it didn’t blind you with mention of post-Soviet time, even though it makes you aware that pre-1991 is Soviet.” Straumanis is the Editorial Director of Open Letter books and is currently translating “Forest Daughters,” a collection of 12 stories from 12 Latvian women. She is also translating the novel “Glass Shards” by Inga Gaile.

Sevinç Turkkan, adjunct instructor at the University of Rochester, sees translation as a form of activism. When she translated the Turkish human rights activist and writer Aslı Erdoğan’s a book of three short stories, “The Stone Building and Other Places,” it was an effort to bring awareness to Erdoğan’s imprisonment in Turkey. Following the subjugation of the military coup in 2016, Turkkan says Erdoğan was falsely accused of sheltering terrorists and writing propaganda in the pro-Kurdish, daily paper Ozgür Güdem. Turkkan’s translation is the only English translation of “The Stone Building.” After nominating Erdoğan for the European Cultural Foundation’s Princess Margaret Award, which Erdoğan won, Turkkan attended the ceremony on behalf of the author who could not attend because of a hold on her passport. Aslı Erdoğan is the recipient of many awards, including the Simone de Beauvoir Prize for Women’s Freedom and was named in the New York Times’s 2017 “11 Powerful Women We Met Around the World.” Turkkan says that Turkish literature is relevant to the American reader now more than ever because “both countries have bullies for presidents” and who are enemies of the press. “What is a stone building?” she asks, “it is a place of confinement, of walls and borders.” She adds: “You see Proust, Kafka, Dostoevsky, Thomas Mann, Calvino, Murakami, Pamuk, are all available in translation. Women are rarely translated. Women are even less known in their own languages than man. By translating their work, you are helping the women authors gain more prominence.” Sevinç Turkkan is currently working on another translation “The City of Crimson Cloak” by Erdoğan’s and is teaching a course on resistance literature this fall semester at the University of Rochester.

But the earlier album was rooted in Americana, while “LONER,” – out on New West Records – explores a wider, zanier pop soundscape that showcases Rose’s brilliant madness.

Hieronymus Bogs and his music is like the space between one’s self-consciousness and the ability to truly listen. Your story blends with his, and this will open your mind. Bogs embraces his own weirdness, and his presence is cinematic and arresting. You’ll find yourself looking away, searching the audience to prove you’re not the only one lucky enough to witness this quasi-holy spectacle. You won’t believe it. It’s mysterious, and yet soothing to the soul. And like the man’s adopted home, there are some Truth or Consequences nestled in there. A soundtrack to a dream. – BY FRANK DE BLASE

“Better Places” Bluebrick Recordings jessesprinkle.bandcamp.com

Mike Powell, Chris Merkley, Charley Orlando.

It’s been a while since we’ve heard any solo material from the multifaceted multiinstrumentalist Jesse Sprinkle. Thankfully, the man is back with a new record, “Better Places,” and its 17 tracks of modest joy. Sprinkle reveals his melodic thesis early on --- track five to be exact --- with “Weakness and Glory,” a mellow, shoegaze display. There are brisk arrangements throughout that bolster the more fragile songs and give them a sturdier resolve. The whole platter has a kind of lilt between the tracks and their various genres, and it’s all held together rhythmically, as drums are Sprinkles’ first musical weapon of choice. It’s as if “Better Places” were conducted by a drummer who can hold back the reins one minute, and in the next, kick out the jams. Sprinkle will play a CD release show for “Better Places” with The Rough & Tumble on Tuesday, September 18, at Bluebrick Recording Studio in Avon. 7 p.m. $5. bluebrickrecordings.com.

Misha Piatigorsky Trio

“Stained Glass & Technicolor Grooves” Natural Drummer naturaldrummer.bandcamp.com

Even though many of the genre’s CD’s are recorded in studios, jazz is still primarily a live art form, with the players reacting to each other in a certain place, at a certain time. Listening to the live recording “Stained Glass & Technicolor Grooves,” you can feel the excitement in the room at the Glen Rock Jewish Center in New Jersey, as pianist Misha Piatigorsky plays with his bandmates Charlie Dougherty on bass and University of Rochester alumnus Sam Fishman on drums. Piatigorsky, who came to the United States from Russia at the age of eight, won the 2004 Thelonious Monk Competition for composition. Since then he has lent his talents to Wynton Marsalis, Joe Lovano, Michael Brecker, and many others. If this album is any indication, that composition award was well deserved. Piatigorski’s original tunes like “Nachlaot” and “Where’s The Sun?” are highly original showcases for his bluesy playing. He’s equally formidable when he takes on a classic like “Afro Blue” or a more recent pop tune like “Pure Imagination.” On the album’s last four tracks, the trio is joined by saxophonist Jeremy Fishman, who is especially strong on the set’s closer, “I Wish I Knew How It Feels To Be Free.” Note: this album is hard to find online; the best place to hear the music, listed above, refers to the band as “The Sam Fishman Trio featuring Misha Piatigorsky.”

I bumped into Rochester one-man blues band Roger Kuhn at the Corn Hill Arts Festival a few weeks ago, and as he frequently does, he had a hot tip for me. “Pony Hand is the best band in Rochester,” he said in a tone that was completely devoid of hyperbole. Now I’ve been exposed to hundreds of bands. Most are good, and a few battle it out for the dubious honor of “worst.” But there are a precious few that fit in the “best” category. There can really be only one, actually. So with that said, this Rochester-based trio – with its frenetic onstage onslaught, twin guitar attack, howling vocals, and driving garage rock mayhem – is aces. Kuhn was right. Pony Hand is the best band in Rochester. Seeing Pony Hand live is like facing a firing squad after flipping it the bird. It’s a whiteknuckle ride. It’s a brash slash of crash-and-burn rock ‘n’ roll. The band – Karrah Teague on vocals and guitar, drummer Giana Caliolo, and Brandon Henahan on guitar and vocals – writes great songs that are more involved and in depth than what you’d expect from a band that adheres to the raw, loud-fast aesthetic. But Pony Hand will leave you there in a puddle, still wanting more. The trio stopped by CITY HQ to discuss playing in more than one band, the importance of having fun, and digging Art Blakey. An edited version of the interview follows. CITY: How did Pony Hand get started? Karrah Teague: We were all going through

tumultuous times, and we met at that same time. Musically or personally tumultuous? Teague: Both. Pony Hand says when it stops being fun, they’ll just stop. PHOTO PROVIDED

Let’s discuss musically. Teague: Giana and I worked the “Girls Rock

Summer Camp” together and wrote a song during lunch. We thought we should start playing together. We just love each other and love playing music together. You guys are all in other bands as well? Giana Caliolo: I’m still doing the Calicoco

thing and have a new record coming out on Dadstache Records. Teague: Brandon and I are in Fuzzrod together. Why do you suppose Rochester musicians aren’t happy unless they’re in more than one band? Teague: Because there’s nothing else to do. What

else are you going to do with your time?

Does this help make you a better or varied musician? Caliolo: As far as my drumming, I had played in

school — jazz bands in high school and college. I just jammed with people. I had never really played drums before. And I certainly didn’t play as fast as we do. What did you set out to do when you formed Pony Hand? Teague: I think we said we wanted to do

something garage-y and different from Velvet Elvis. Brandon Henahan: Karrah and I were both in Velvet Elvis – a completely different type of music; stoner-rock stuff. It had a lot of sludge and it was slow. When writing songs, do you ever bring in something that doesn’t work? Teague: Aww, stuff always never works. But now

we’re writing differently instead of one person bringing in a song. We’re trying to write more as a band. What are you listening to? Henahan: Newer stuff. Stripped-down garage

rock like Jeff the Brotherhood. Caliolo: I listen to a lot of Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers. It’s definitely new, what and how I’m playing with these two. It’s really fast. Besides speed, lo-fi stuff seems to be a big thing lately. What do you attribute that to? Henahan: Yeah, the low-fi stuff for sure. I think

Dadstache Records has helped curate that with their releases.

When can we expect another record from Pony Hand? Teague: Not soon. We have more time to write,

so we’d like to put out something next year. Fuzzrod is putting out a record. Giana just put out a record. So we’ve been playing older stuff from our catalogue. What constitutes a good Pony Hand show? Teague: Playing well. But it’s not the first

thing. I’d have to say audience feedback and participation. I can’t help it — I want to see people having fun. Caliolo: I’ve put a lot of work in other projects, but this doesn’t feel like work because it’s so fun. Henahan: If it starts being no fun, we’ll just stop doing it.

CLASSICAL | ROCHESTER PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

For its 2018-2019 season opener, the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra follows the standard “rousing overture/concerto with big-name soloist/favorite Romantic symphony” template. Thankfully, it’s wonderfully curated by Music Director Ward Stare. The POP/ROCK overture is Berlioz’s brilliant “Roman Carnival,” and the symphony Amy Montrois. Johnny’s is definitely a favorite - the “New World Symphony” of Dvorák (a Pub & Grill, 1382 Culver Rd. composer who appears several times this season on the RPO 224-0990. 5 p.m. schedule). The big excitement is in the concerto slot. Prokofiev’s Brass Taxi. 585 Rockin Second Piano Concerto is a huge, fearsomely virtuosic piece that Burger Bar, 250 Pixley Road. caused a scandal at its premiere, and it can still startle an audi247-0079. 8:30 p.m. $5. ence when it’s well done.

Mary Mendez Rizzo and J. Simmons in “Anna in the Tropics.” PHOTO BY MEGAN COLOMBO

Unhappy in their own way “Anna in the Tropics” REVIEWED SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 8 CONTINUES THROUGH SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 23 BLACKFRIARS THEATRE, 795 E. MAIN ST. TICKETS START AT $20 BLACKFRIARS.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY LEAH STACY

In recent years, the Latinx theater community has been fortunate to have “In the Heights” and “Hamilton” writercomposer Lin Manuel-Miranda as a devoted champion for increased cultural roles and diversity on Broadway. Still, Latinx roles – and representation – onstage is rare; so much so that it’s often overlooked in local theatre company seasons. Rochester’s theater scene has been working to change this in the last few years, largely driven by efforts of the 20 CITY SEPTEMBER 12 - 18, 2018

Rochester Latino Theatre Company (run by Annette Ramos and Stephanie Paredes). Last fall, the company partnered with Geva Theatre Center to produce Miranda’s “In the Heights,” which had a sold-out run and raised more than $90,000 for hurricane relief in Puerto Rico. Blackfriars Theatre kicks off their 201819 season by working with Rochester Latino Theatre Company to produce a lesser known (and non-musical) show, “Anna in the Tropics,” by Nilo Cruz. The production, which won the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for drama, runs through September 23 and presents another vehicle for Latinx culture and history onstage. “Anna in the Tropics” is set in 1929 Tampa and focuses on an immigrant Latinx family who owns and operates a Cuban cigar factory. As was commonly done in 19th and early 20th-century Cuban cigar factory culture, the family employs an educated lector (someone

who reads aloud) to entertain the workers with novels during the tedious hours of rolling and filling cigars. These readings were a daily highlight for the workers, and usually lasted for hours (perhaps comparable to a Netflix binge in today’s society), though the novels typically took a month or more to complete. In this production, the power of literature is compared to the power of alcohol. The metaphor weaves throughout the plot as the new lector, Juan Julian (the charismatic, charming J. Simmons) arrives from Cuba and chooses “Anna Karenina” as his first novel.

Throughout the two and a half hour show, the character – and the novel – becomes a catalyst for the family, challenging each to deal with a different problem they’ve been evading. For factory owner Santiago (a patriarchal, bumbling Adam Rosenfeld) and his wife Ofelia (the effervescent Adriana Riano), it is the issue of Santiago’s gambling, which is creating debt for the factory; for their daughter, Conchita (a captivating Mary Mendez Rizzo) and her husband Palomo (the emotive Raul Torres), a rocky marriage; for Santiago’s jilted half-brother Cheche (a desperate, cloying Dimitar Kominovski), a bitter heart; and for the family’s daydreaming youngest daughter, Marela (sweetly played by Daimarelys Lara), the hope for romance. As the toil and heat of the Florida cigar plant is juxtaposed with the pomp and ice of Russian society, each character takes a different lesson from “Anna Karenina.” Much like in Tolstoy’s famous work, the choices they make change the family irreparably. The cast has aligned skill levels (and surprisingly consistent accents), even if it’s apparent some of them are the wrong age to be playing their respective characters. Director Patricia Lewis Browne, who last directed “Little Women” for Blackfriars, had the challenge of several intimate and violent scenes, and the dynamic that results is palpable – especially at the climax of the show. The stark, tropical setting calls to mind a sort of Hemingway-meets-Chekhov aesthetic. Allen Wright Shannon has designed an airy, whitewashed wood factory, with accents of bright blue along the floor planks and around the windows and walls. Yellowed cigar ads and newspaper clippings cover the back wall and create a vintage mural, while furnishings are simple and allow for the acting to command attention. Lighting design by Ted Plant is full of warm yellows and greens, reminiscent of a hazy summer day. “Anna in the Tropics” is important for local audiences who care about the future of diverse theater in Rochester and beyond. The need for Latinx representation is real. and it’s inspiring to hear a preshow greeting in both English and Spanish (as happened on Saturday night), as well as learn about Latinx history onstage.

ART | ‘CHASINGNIRVANACLEAN’

Though reform efforts are perpetually underway, the US is behind other countries in its reduction of stigma about addiction and pursuit of more viable recovery methods. A new exhibit up at Flower City Arts Center, “ChasingNirvanaClean: Photographs by Simone Ochrym,” is a photojournalism and storytelling project that focuses on individuals in recovery from addiction. Ochrym has a specific interest in how and why people enter and remain in long term addiction recovery, and highlights those who have achieved recovery as societal role models. Visitors’ donations will go to Studio 678 Youth Photography Program, ChasingNirvanaClean, and Find Your Path addictions resource center. “ChasingNirvanaClean” continues through October 20 at Flower City Arts Center’s Photography Gallery, 713 Monroe Avenue. Photography Gallery hours are Monday through Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursday, 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.; and Friday through Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. Admission to the center is free. 244-1730; rochesterarts.org. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

ART BY DAVE CALVER

ART | ‘LIMBO LOUNGE’ AND ‘ON THE SIDE’

Rochester Contemporary Art Center has two shows running concurrently this month. “On the Side,” features rarely-seen work by some of Rochester’s well-known design professionals. It’s an annual opportunity for designers, photographers, graphic artists, and copywriters who are members of the Rochester Advertising Federation (RAF) to exhibit work independent from their nine-to-five gigs. And in the LAB Space, “Limbo Lounge” is filled with surreal visions by former Rochesterian and renowned illustrator Dave Calver. The exhibition of illustrations are drawn from Calver’s newly published graphic novel of the same name.

RECREATION | FAMILY ARCHAEOLOGY WEEKEND

We’ve still got some beautiful weather left in the season, which is good news for this weekend’s outdoor Family Archaeology Weekend at Rochester Museum and Science Center’s Cumming Nature Center. The outdoor event features a hands-on, guided excavation of an 18th-century farmhouse foundation. Part of the nature center’s property today, the Hall Homestead dig site is located in what was known as Frost Town, a pioneer logging settlement with roots that can be traced back to 1790. Citizen scientists of all ages can take part in meaningful research at various stations to experientially learn archaeological disciplines, excavation techniques, and artifact dating. An on-hand team will also interpret items previously found by students working at the site. Archaeology Weekend takes place Saturday and Sunday, September 15 and 16, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Cumming Nature Center, 6472 Gulick Road, Naples. Event admittance is $25 per families or $10 per person, and pre-registration is recommended. Children must have adult supervision. Families are encouraged to pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the miles of CNC nature trails. 697-1944; rmsc.org. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

MUSEUM | ‘BE THE ASTRONAUT’

As fascinated as I am by all things outer space, there’s not a thing on this green world you could offer me to actually leave terra firma (the deep sea freaks me out, too. What can I say, I like breathing). So The Strong National Museum of Play’s new interactive exhibit, “Be the Astronaut,” is probably as close as I’ll get. The exhibit lets visitors of all ages plan a space mission, learn about the tech and math skills required to be an astronaut, fly spaceships, pilot landers, and drive rovers (in simulation, of course). It also features real meteorites from space, memorabilia from the Soviet space program and Apollo Space Race, full-size spacesuits, and more. Get in, nerds, we’re going to Mars. “Be the Astronaut” continues at The Strong, 1 Manhattan Square, through January 7, 2019. Admission is $15 for ages 2 and up, and free to members and babies. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. 263-2700; museumofplay.org. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

John Cusack will be in town this week for a screening of “Say Anything” at Kodak Center. PHOTO COURTESY OF MILLS ENTERTAINMENT

John Cusack gave us his heart “Say Anything” with John Cusack Live THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 7;30 P.M. KODAK CENTER, 200 WEST RIDGE ROAD TICKETS START AT $35 254-0181; KODAK.COM

[ INTERVIEW ] BY JAMES A. BROWN

John Cusack isn’t the nostalgic type. “I don’t usually look backwards too much,” Cusack told CITY via phone from his Chicago residence, in advance of his Rochester appearance this week. But he’ll make an exception for the things he loves, such as “old baseball, sports teams, the ‘85 Bears,” he says. “So, I guess I have a sweet spot for things that I like…but as far when you’re doing it, you wanna keep moving to the next thing. And what’s in front of you.”

Coincidently enough, the Kodak Center’s screening of his 1989 film “Say Anything,” which brings him to town this Thursday night, is very much in front of Cusack. He’s screened the film in theaters a half dozen times this year. “Say Anything” centers on Cusack’s character Lloyd Dobler, a noble ne’er-do-well who dares to ask out fellow high school senior, Diane Court, a pretty, preppy, straight-A student. Both characters grapple with an unanswerable, unavoidable question: “What do they want to do when they grow up?” And in this case, whether they can or should do it together. The film has gained cult status and general acclaim since its debut. Its most memorable scene — featuring Cusack’s trench coat-clad lead character hoisting a boombox over his head, blasting Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes” outside his exgirlfriend’s window — became something of a modern archetypal image of a jilted

lover begging for a second chance. And Cusack went on to have a career of memorable performances in blockbusters “Con-Air” and “Hot Tub Time Machine,” and niche romantic comedies “Grosse Point Blank” and “High Fidelity,” which he has also took on the road this year. For Cusack, revisiting these films is less about vanity and more about his fans’ relationship with his films. “If people keep coming and enjoying it, I’ll keep doing it,” Cusack says. “It’s kind of a party atmosphere. You can see the fans having an almost interactive experience with the movie,” he says, adding that the audience’s reaction almost sounds like the audiences of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” Each screening is paired with a spirited question and answer session. Cusack says most fans want to talk about their favorite scenes or characters, while others want to talk politics, which is a passion of his.

“These days, I’m mostly upfront with politics because of the Trump Administration and how dangerous it is,” Cusack says. “The press is under attack. I work on trying to preserve principles that matter.” But Cusack’s principle-driven work started years before the Trump Administration. He’s been an outspoken critic of drone warfare and sits on the board of the Freedom of the Press Foundation. That organization was founded by fellow Chicago native Daniel Ellsberg, who famously leaked The Pentagon Papers during the Vietnam War. The foundation’s site says that it’s “dedicated to helping support and defend aggressive, publicinterest journalism focused on exposing mismanagement, corruption, and lawbreaking in government.” Other key members of the organization include Edward Snowden, The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald, and filmmaker Laura Poitras. Cusack says that politics have always played a role in how he chooses his acting roles. “You can be in super jingoistic manipulative pieces or choose not to be in them,” he says. “I’ve always chose not to do those types of things. Sometimes there’s a lazy way to tell a story. And sometimes there’s a more provocative, honest way to tell a story.” His quest for honest, provocative roles has recently led him to participate in independent films with unique slants, such as the 2012 dark period piece, “The Raven,” inspired by the titular Edgar Allan Poe poem; and the 2015 Spike Lee musical, “ChiRaq,” which is an adaptation of the Greek play “Lysistrata,” set against a modern day backdrop of Chicago gang violence. “There’s a difference between having a point of view and sticking to it,” Cusack says. “Or having no ideas at all. Even if you’re making a popcorn movie, you can still try to make something good. Something that has contrast.”
