I read that Mayor Warren is proposing filling in more of the Inner Loop. This is an absolutely ludicrous and unnecessary expense. The Inner Loop serves as a valuable connection to the east and west parts of the city. During morning and afternoon rush hours, it is congested and is used by schools and transit buses. Also, on occasions when other city arteries are closed either for repair or because of parades and other events, it is a valuable and connecting link. This is really a solution looking for a problem. The metropolitan area roads and bridges are in terrible shape. Several city streets, including main arteries, resemble roads in third-world countries. Money would be much better spent on repairing our infrastructure. The northwest corner of Main Street and Clinton Avenue resembles a bombed-out section of Syria and should be demolished. The railroad and railroad bridges separated downtown from northern residential areas long before the Inner Loop was built. I trust that the mayor is not proposing that we eliminate the railroad service. If you want people to come downtown for various events and business reasons, a smooth flow of traffic is necessary; you don’t construct roads for traffic conditions at 2 in the morning. I urge readers to contact their local, state, and federal representatives to oppose this outlandish idea. JAMES BOEHLER

Schools should produce informed voters

want to introduce an hour of civics and American history every day for K-12, or at least for grades 6-12. Is anything more important? The one other choice I can think of is to prepare young people to function effectively as workers in a post-industrial economy; we might want to introduce four or five hours of accounting, engineering, and computer programming every day. Anyway, today we have an uninformed, uncritical electorate who are voting for the wrong candidates and supporting the wrong causes for the wrong reasons. A semi-literate electorate installs a hostile government which cuts funding to public schools for the purpose of keeping their constituents from thinking clearly about government. Lather, rinse, repeat. ROBERT COOPER

Report on military school was distorted

Reader beware: Tim Macaluso’s article “Report finds support for military school,” (April 27) is dangerously misleading. According to the article, the recently released report proposing a district military academy “found that support for a military-style school is strong in both the city and the suburbs.” In fact, though, the report itself states explicitly that the opinions collected from several hundred respondents in surveys and focus groups “should not be taken as a quantitative representation of community opinions.” Furthermore, these opinions, supportive and not, are from selfselected people who know (and are told) little or nothing about public military schools, except for marginal familiarity with education and even less so with the military. Yet to Macaluso, the report “seems to make a strong case for opening a military-style academy in the Rochester City School District.” It does? In fact, beyond its invalid insinuations of “support” drawn from an unrepresentative array of uninformed opinions, the report seems not even to try to make a case for such a school. After all, if someone were proposing a new school based on, say, Outward Bound or Head Start, we would expect to see a case built on research evidence and informed

assessments of the performance, costs, and educational benefits of such a program. But surprisingly, even though military programs have been in public schools since World War I, the report’s authors don’t even try to build their case from evidence and assessments found in years of research. Nor do they provide any evidence based on informed testimony, local or otherwise. In this vacuous report, no solid evidence at all is offered for the benefits of such a school. Yet, based on the flimsiest of findings, the report recommends without explanation opening a new military school for which the district itself would bear the full cost, unlike the district’s existing JROTC programs, which share costs with the Army. And this so-called “feasibility report” never even bothers to explore whether the district’s strained budget could afford these new costs. On careful examination, whatever one’s views of the military, this inept report fails to make any legitimate case that a military academy might benefit district students. Its case depends only on trying to convince us, with negligible evidence and misleading publicity, that the community wants it. This is an untruth that the media seems only too ready to swallow and pass on. DOUGLAS NOBLE

Name issue isn’t important

(On a letter writer’s suggestion to drop the name “Rochester” given Nathaniel Rochester’s history as a slave owner and trader.)

Nathaniel Rochester, one of three founders, gave our city his name, but the name predated him by centuries. Many of us assumed that we were named after Rochester, England, 30 miles from London. Its heritage goes back to 604 A.D.; it has a famous cathedral, was recognized as a city from 1211, and was a favorite of Charles Dickens. Our Rochester is the largest, by population, of all of the American cities with the name. Let’s enjoy being as great as we are, overlook Nathaniel’s wrongdoing, which need not touch us, and use our energy to work on more pressing issues. BYRNA WEIR

HARDY AZALEAS

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER

What in God’s name is this country coming to? It is stunning. Donald Trump is going to be the Republican Party’s candidate for president of the United States. For months, Americans have watched as the party’s leading lights have turned an important part of the democratic process into a crude spectacle of taunts, insults, and bathroom humor. We have heard Donald Trump accuse Ted Cruz’s father of being with Lee Harvey Oswald before John Kennedy was killed; Cruz charging that Trump is a “serial philanderer”; Marco Rubio suggesting that Trump has peed in his pants and has a small, well…. That kind of little-boy braggadocio is nothing, though, compared to the insults that Donald Trump has aimed at women, at the physically disabled, at Mexicans, at Muslims, at prisoners of war. The result of all that? Donald Trump has waltzed off with the Republican Party’s presidential nomination. He is a dangerous, dangerous man, not only unfit to serve as president but a complete disgrace, to his party and the nation. We have had a bully as president before. We have had presidents with dangerously misguided views of the world, misjudgments in foreign policy that have created havoc and cost lives for decades afterward. But we have never had the likes of Donald Trump. Trump didn’t create the racism and xenophobia that we’re seeing right now. It’s been there all along. But he has unleashed it, whipped it up, declared it respectable, and encouraged its angry expression in cheering, packed rallies. A few Republicans have stood up for American principles and are refusing to support Trump, Jeb Bush, Lindsey Graham, George W. Bush, and George H.W. Bush among them. But others have jumped right on board. Chris Christie. Mitch McConnell. Reince Preibus. Tennessee’s Marcia Blackburn. New York’s Chris Collins and Tom Reed. Our own Tom Golisano, Bill Nojay, and party chair Bill Reilich. Newt Gingrich. Rick Perry. All supporting him. Dick Cheney (no surprise): supporting him. John McCain – as if his selection of Sarah Palin didn’t create enough doubts about his judgment – will support Trump if he’s the Republican nominee. Maine’s Susan Collins, who I thought was one of the few ethical Republicans left in the Senate, says she’ll support Trump if he stops the “gratuitous personal insults.” And Paul Ryan is dissembling. “I’m just

Trump is a dangerous man, not only unfit to serve as president but a complete disgrace, to his party and the nation.” not ready to do that at this point,” he said on CNN. “I’m not there right now.” But: “I hope to, though, and I want to.” And: “I think what is required is that we unify the party.” “I hope to, though, and I want to.” “What is required is that we unify the party.” Honorable people can disagree on abortion, the death penalty, monetary policy, foreign policy, the role of government. But racism? Misogyny? Ethnic and religious tracking? In the Washington Post last week, Dana Milbank cited examples of what American Muslims have endured as the Trump candidacy has gained steam: insults, taunts, death threats, desecration of the Koran. And Trump himself has proposed a registry of Muslims in the US and a ban on Muslims coming here. This is the Republican Party’s sole candidate for president. “Now Republicans across the country will be forced to make a moral choice,” wrote Milbank. “Do they associate themselves with the grotesque things that Trump and his supporters have said and done? Or do they refuse to allow such things to be said and done in their names?” Presumably some of the prominent Republicans lining up behind Trump are happy to have such things said and done in their name. Others, though, are embracing him for the sake of the party. Party unity. Protection of the party’s control of the Senate and the House. The party over the principles and moral fabric of the country. In a very real sense, Donald Trump has become the face of the Republican Party. The party formerly known as the party of Abraham Lincoln. Stunning. Simply stunning.

RIT’s Destler retiring

William Destler, president of Rochester Institute of Technology, will retire at the end of the 20162017 school year; a search for his replacement will begin immediately. Destler joined RIT in 2007 and oversaw a dramatic expansion of the institution, particularly in the areas of sustainability and green design, interactive games, and computer security.

State Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia has rebuffed Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren’s attempt to intervene in struggling city schools. Elia made clear that much of what Warren wants to do is not permitted by law, and that the responsibility for these schools rests with the Rochester school board.

Block F may stay in UR’s hands

Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren proposed legislation to let the University of Rochester hang onto Block F at 420 East Main Street until 2019, with additional extensions possible. The UR has not been able to find a developer for the 1.47 acres, the legislation says.

Warren wrote Elia and the State Board of Regents on April 13, asking for a decision-making role in city schools that go into state receivership. She asked for the appointment of a single independent receiver to oversee all eligible schools in the Rochester school district; the schools would be grouped together into an achievement district. Having multiple receivers with multiple plans would be chaotic, Warren said. Warren also wanted the authority to help craft the framework of the achievement district and to help pick the receiver who is hired to run the schools. In her April 18 response to Warren, Elia said that no legal provision exists in New York to create an achievement district that operates independent of a school district. Some of Warren’s ideas, however, could be accomplished under the state receivership law, Elia

GREAT SERVICE. NO ATTITUDE.

said. No restriction exists, for example, on the number of schools that can be overseen by a single, independent receiver, Elia said. “I want to make clear that I am neither endorsing any of the particular ideas contained in this letter nor seeking to minimize the very significant challenges that would be involved in their implementation,” Elia wrote to Warren about Warren’s letter. “Rather, my goal is to be responsive to your information request about the receivership law and identify areas of alignment and possible constraints with regard to the ideas you raised. The ultimate focus of responsibility for the school district’s receivership vision remains vested in the elected school board.” In response to Elia’s letter, Warren said that she still plans to work with the commissioner and legislative leaders to come up with a plan to turn around failing schools.

McGriff’s reoccupation has drawn the attention of national housing activism groups, who say that it illustrates a broader point. McGriff’s situation is a common one across the country, and they want the Federal Housing Administration to change some of its foreclosure policies.

HOUSING | BY JEREMY MOULE

Eviction fight draws national attention Elizabeth McGriff is back in her house on Cedarwood Terrace, though the law is not on her side. She was evicted from the property in April. McGriff says that she has no idea how long she’ll be able to stay in the house, which is in foreclosure by her mortgage lender, MidFirst Bank. The advocacy group Take Back the Land helped her resist four scheduled evictions and is once again supporting her. The members say that they hope she’ll be able to stay in the house permanently. McGriff’s reoccupation has drawn the attention of national housing activism groups, who say that it illustrates a broader point. McGriff’s situation is a common one across the country, and they want the Federal Housing Administration, which has backed countless mortgages, McGriff’s included, to change some of its foreclosure policies. “Our community is suffering,” McGriff said after a Take Back the Land rally outside the house last week. “There’s a lot of bank foreclosures in the community.” McGriff’s troubles started when the economy tanked and she lost her job with the US Postal Service, she says. She eventually got a new job, but it paid less, and she was unable to work out

new terms with the bank to bring her mortgage payments down to an affordable amount, she says. The bank foreclosed, put the property up for auction, and then bought it for $115,000. It offered the house back to McGriff for $130,000, but that’s way more than what she paid for it, she says, and well above its $73,000 assessed Elizabeth McGriff, with the support of Take Back the Land, has value.

McGriff isn’t asking for the house back, Homes for All, a national group that Take Back the Land is working with, is calling per se.

Prison for LDC player Three men who worked together to rig bids for two big Monroe County contracts received their comeuppance in court last week. Acting Monroe County Court Justice Dennis Kehoe sentenced Daniel Lynch to 2 1/3 years to 7 years behind bars for theft and bid rigging. Lynch was the principal in Navitech, the management company that landed the county contracts. He also has to pay more than $600,000 in restitution. The defendants were all tied to a scheme to steer county contracts to Lynch’s company. In his plea agreement, Lynch admitted that he helped draft the contract proposals and that he profited off of information fed to him by other defendants. One of the contracts dealt with upgrading and maintaining the county’s computer and office technology systems, the other with upgrading and operating the countywide emergency communications system. The other defendants were the county’s former chief information officer, Nelson Rivera; the Monroe County Water Authority’s former security director, Robert Wiesner; and Lynch’s Navitech partner, accountant John Maggio. Wiesner previously pleaded guilty to a bid-rigging charge and received a conditional discharge. Kehoe sentenced Rivera to five years of probation and $60,000 in restitution. Maggio, who was Lynch’s partner in Navitech, received a conditional discharge and must pay $350,000 in restitution. Rivera’s and Maggio’s sentences were part of previously reached plea agreements.

Dance provides catharsis for city youth DANCE | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

Dozens of young people participate in Battle for the ROC freestyle dance competitions that are held on Thursday evenings at rotating city recreation centers. PHOTOS BY JOSH SANDERS

Racqueab Overton has the body of a big cat: compact, quick, and powerful. When the 20 year old dances, his shoulders roll and start a wave that reverberates through his arms and continues down into his torso as if he were possessed by an alien creature. After Overton finished performing at a recent Battle for the ROC dance event, a group of about 20 fellow dancers took off their shoes and tossed them at him in a show of respect: the street-dance version of roses. This is the Adams Street recreation center, after all, not Carnegie Hall. And Overton is one of Rochester’s most admired street dancers. “Dance is my passion,” he says. “It’s like taking on another life for me and dancing makes people happy.” Battle for the ROC is a spinoff of TRU ART Dance Company, both led by artistic director Jayme Bermudez. What started as a random dance class quickly evolved into a studio that serves Rochester youth ages 13 to

25. Youth can come to the TRU ART Dance Factory at 215 Tremont Street on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. for free community dance classes. Battle for the ROC is a street dance competition that TRU ART holds at city recreation centers on Thursdays from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The events rotate between the different rec centers throughout the city so young people in all neighborhoods can easily attend. The youth who participate in Battle for the Roc are often at risk of dropping out of school or graduating late with little direction, Bermudez says. And the dancing helps them develop their self-esteem, encourages their creativity, and lets them compete in a nonaggressive way, he says. Bermudez worked as a youth advocate with the Ibero-American Action League until funding for the program ran out about a year ago. He says that he “lost” five young people during his time at Ibero,

mostly due to neighborhood violence. Going to five funerals in a year motivated him to do something, he says. “I had this vision for a safe place where young people can come and sweat it out and leave all of their frustrations and worries on the floor,” Bermudez says. “Dance is about having fun through movement. They can compete and this gets serious, but it’s about respecting each person’s talent.” Bermudez specializes in Latin ballroom dancing, but students can come to the Dance Factory and learn a little bit of everything from jazz to modern dance, he says. Street dancing is a natural and nonprofessional style that evolved in mostly urban communities in places as far flung as Europe, Australia, South Korea, and in the dance halls of Jamaica. In the US, street dancing has its roots in urban hip-hop music. Rolling, popping, clogging, b-boying, and twerking have become part of the street dance vocabulary. Though popularized though TV programs such as “So You Think You Can Dance” and websites such as YouTube, street dance remains a nonconforming and highly personalized art form. Dance and music appeal to many youth, but dance is often not offered in school or

at recreation centers, where other art forms or sports activities dominate programming, says Isaac Bliss, area coordinator for the city’s Department of Recreation and Youth Services. “This is truly different because some of these kids are really shy and it’s great to see them come out of that and express themselves,” he says. And even though the dancers often have talent and drive, they frequently come from households that lack resources, Bermudez says. “Afterschool dance classes are just literally unaffordable for our families,” he says. Though TRU ART is supported by Young Audiences of Rochester, a nonprofit that specializes in providing arts education to area youth, funding is a constant concern. Bermudez hopes that grants will allow him to continue to grow TRU ART, and for it to eventually become a youth-run organization, he says. Area youth would be able to develop their creative talents as well as their business and personal management skills, he says. “This is really about education, because if you want to dance here you have to stay in school and graduate to be part of this,” Bermudez says. “We all love to dance, and that’s great, but there’s accountability and personal responsibility here, too. I’m not teaching you to dance; I’m really teaching you life skills.” rochestercitynewspaper.com

ochester cab drivers are bracing for what they say may be the fight of their livelihoods, as the Uber revolution prepares to march on Upstate New York. State lawmakers are talking about bringing ride sharing to Upstate and how to do it. Uber is a tech-based transportation service that operates in more than 400 cities worldwide, including New York City. Customers use Uber’s mobile app on their smartphones to book rides, and drivers pick them up using their own vehicle. The company is estimated to be worth more than $60 billion. Where Uber and its supporters see long-overdue innovation in an industry that had stagnated, the company’s critics see an under-regulated upstart, with gobs of money and political muscle, poised to take jobs away from taxi drivers. And unlike most Uber drivers, these critics say, taxi drivers are in large part full-time professionals with families to support. Calls to bring ride sharing Upstate are coming from many segments of the community, including several state, regional, and local politicians, as well as some area clergy members and business groups. But if it happens, it won’t be overnight. State Assembly Majority Leader Joe Morelle says that much more legwork has to be done before any legislation can be voted on, and that the Legislature may not get to it this session, which ends in June.

MAY 11-17, 2016

Many people, including some in the taxi industry, say that cab drivers and cab companies helped create an opening for ride sharing because cab service isn’t great, overall. The industry has essentially had a monopoly on on-demand ride sharing, critics say, and acts like it. The drivers can be cranky, the service unreliable, and the cars are often old, dirty, or broken, they say. “The taxi industry as a whole has not really invested a lot in better automobiles over the years,” says Graham Hodges, a professor at Colgate University. “So Uber comes along with nice cars, bottles of water, flowers, and things like that, and it looks great to customers.” Hodges is a former New York City cab driver who wrote the book, “Taxi! A Cultural History of the New York City Cabdriver.” In Rochester, though, the push for ride sharing doesn’t seem to be about the quality of the city’s taxi service. It’s about the jobs, many politicians say, and about providing transportation alternatives, particularly for millennials. Young people travel to other cities, use Uber or another ride-sharing service, and then wonder why they can’t have it here. “Those college students want options and ways to get to and from different venues, and we should be a community that gives it to them,” says Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren. “I think that we would be shortsighted as a community to not offer some other options for transportation.” Although the state legislation would

likely be about ride sharing in general and wouldn’t single out Uber, the company is clearly the leviathan keeping many Upstate cab drivers awake at night. And the industry is fighting back. The New York Taxi Workers Alliance has teamed up with union reps in Rochester, taxi drivers, and the Rochester Taxi Drivers Association to let politicians and the public know that they believe their livelihoods are at stake. They held a rally outside City Hall last month, and they’re speaking to members of City Council who, they hope, will help influence state representatives in their favor. “They’re trying to kill our businesses,” says Adne Alemu, who has been a Rochester cab driver for 18 years. “We have to feed our families.” But it’s not just about jobs, the cab drivers say. Rochester taxi drivers have a slew of regulations, spelled out in the city’s municipal code, which they must follow. So why, they ask, should Uber be held to a lesser standard? And they say that Uber doesn’t do enough to ensure riders’ safety; it opposes fingerprint checks for potential drivers, for example, “There’s a reason we make teachers do this,” says Zubin Soleimany, policy coordinator for the New York Taxi Workers Alliance. “They do keep people out.” Uber general manager Josh Mohrer says that fingerprint checks are discriminatory, particularly against minorities and people of low income, because they’re based on arrests, not convictions. Uber’s background checks, which include screenings through national, state, and local databases, are thorough, he says. (Uber and Lyft suspended service in Austin, Texas, this week because of additional regulations imposed on the companies, including driver fingerprinting.

The regulations were approved by voters.) “Safety does not begin and end with a background check,” Mohrer says. “Our technology makes it possible to focus on safety for riders and drivers before, during, and after every trip in ways that have never been possible before.” And Uber wants a full regulatory framework in Upstate New York, he says, that includes insurance requirements, price transparency, and consumer protection. Morelle says that he understands the cab drivers’ point about a level playing field; you shouldn’t have special rules for Uber, he says. But the cab drivers have to realize that they can’t wish Uber out of existence, he says. “You’re not going to stop this,” Morelle says. “This is like the people who didn’t like talking motion pictures. People also didn’t like automobiles. They’d say, ‘Well, they can’t do that. That’s never going to catch on.’ That sort of old-world thinking doesn’t work well in this new environment. We’re going to have to continue to adjust public policy to recognize it.” The answer may be to create a statewide framework governing taxis and taxi drivers as well as ride-sharing companies, Morelle says, to replace the patchwork of regulations currently in place across the state. “You can’t argue that I can’t let someone into an industry because it’s never been that way,” he says. “By the same token, the new industry can’t come in and say, ‘Well, we don’t want to abide by any of the rules, because we’re new.’ I just think we have to find an opportunity to create a single public policy around this.” Compelling points exist on both sides of the Uber argument, which are summarized below using each party’s point of view.

Of course, bring Uber here. The fares are usually cheaper, except maybe during times of peak demand, and you don’t have to carry cash, because Uber has your credit card information on file. You can choose your car and your driver, and each rates the other afterward, so Uber gets instant feedback, which the company says is a major safety feature. And no tip! In Rochester, unless you’re at a hotel or the airport, you’re probably not going to step outside and find a cab waiting for you; this isn’t New York City. And Uber can send the nearest driver to your pickup location, so it’s usually faster than a cab. Best of all, you can track the car’s arrival on the app, so no more waiting outside in the rain or those character-building Rochester winters. And it’s not like there’s a menu of transportation options to choose from in the city or county; no bike share or light rail. With New York’s aging population and the cost of car ownership, Morelle says that he believes that people might use Uber to save money. Mayor Warren says that Rochester is a city that encourages free enterprise, and Uber says it will create more than 1,000 jobs in Rochester its first year. You can become a driver almost instantly and work when, where, and for however long you choose. “People will work 40 hours a week like a full-time job, or they might just work 10 hours a week on the side, or they may just work as a one-time thing to try to earn money to pay for an unexpected bill, or a purchase that they’re looking to make, or a vacation,” Mohrer says. “You can really start and stop anytime. There’s no commitment.” The stuff about taking jobs away from cab drivers is overblown, Mohrer says. He says, and Warren agrees, that what services such as Uber actually do is generate more customers for everyone. Because Uber is inexpensive and easy, people use ride sharing who never did before. And that’s good for the environment. “Ultimately, the less people are dependent on their cars, the more they are going to use all sorts of services,” Mohrer says, including public transit. “I think this is going to be more about leaving the car in their driveway,” he says. Uber may also help curb drunk driving. A study from Temple University found that cities with Uber have 3.6 percent to 5.6 percent fewer drunk driving deaths than cities without ride sharing. A Newsweek story speculates that if ride sharing were available nationwide, it would save billions of dollars and hundreds of lives annually, citing that same Temple study.

“I THINK THAT WE WOULD BE SHORTSIGHTED AS A COMMUNITY TO NOT OFFER SOME OTHER OPTIONS FOR TRANSPORTATION.” ROCHESTER MAYOR LOVELY WARREN The state will work on any issues around insurance and background checks, Morelle says, emphasizing that the checks should be the same for ride-sharing drivers as they are for taxi drivers. “This is the thing,” he says, “we’re not going to relax health and safety regulations in order to expedite commerce.” And if for some reason, the state permits ride sharing without regulations comparable to what the City of Rochester imposes on taxi drivers, then city government can take matters into its own hands. “The city would have to look at its policy to see if we’re discriminating against taxi drivers and should we give them the ability to service their clients in a different way,” Warren says. The competition from ride-sharing companies is forcing the taxi industry to finally up its game. Many local taxi drivers and union reps say that they know that an app is the future. At least one local company is already on board. Park Avenue Taxi’s app, TaxiCaller, appears to function much like Uber’s app. You can see which vehicles are near you and how many people they can hold, and then arrange pickup with a couple of touches of the screen. “I don’t think anybody’s going to be calling a taxi company on the phone in 10 years,” says Soleimany, of the Taxi Workers Alliance. continues on page 10

WHY, UBER?!

continues from page 9

UBER: NO Whoa, whoa, whoa: you can hardly call driving for Uber a “job,” Soleimany says. Sixty-nine percent of Uber drivers have other full- or part-time work, and half average fewer than 10 hours a week behind the wheel. Most Rochester taxi drivers, though, are full-time professionals supporting families on net pay of $12 to $15 an hour. What about protecting the jobs of the hundreds of cabbies who’ve been driving Rochester’s streets for years, if not decades? It’s true that not a lot of hard data is available yet, but taxi trips in New York City decreased by approximately 8 percent from 2012 to 2014, according to an article in The Atlantic; the timing is coincidental with the onset of Uber. And Gizmondo and other media outfits blame the bankruptcy of San Francisco’s largest taxi company, Yellow Cab, at least in part on Uber and Lyft. If taxi drivers are feeling the effects in those cities, critics say, what chance does a Rochester cab driver have if Uber rolls in? Monroe County’s population is flat, and it certainly can’t compete with New York City or San Francisco in terms of tourism. All ride share would do is split the pie into smaller pieces, critics say, so no one would be able to make a living. “Who will get a full-time job?” asks Melkie Demissie, a Rochester cab driver and an owner of Park Avenue Taxi. “If they’re out of a job, the city has to be prepared to support these people, whether you call it food stamps, whether you call it Medicaid. It will have a lot of impact and expenses on consumers as a whole, because if I am not able to support myself, you will support me.” Driving a taxi is also one of the few jobs that an immigrant who isn’t proficient in English or who lacks specialized skills can get and actually earn a decent salary. Earnings estimates you see from Uber don’t include the cost of the wear and tear on your car, maintenance, gas, and other expenses. That’s all coming out of the driver’s pocket. The regulations covering cabs and cab drivers in the city code are stringent, governing everything from the lettering on the cars to the dress and behavior of the drivers: no eating, drinking, or smoking while driving. The cabs must be inspected twice a year, and the drivers are vetted by the Rochester Police Department. And all cab drivers must come in annually for additional training from the RPD and VisitRochester. The extent of Uber’s driver training, on the other hand, seems to be a short instructional video. VisitRochester covers the hospitality end of the taxi drivers’ training, which includes attitude and customer service. “We see the taxicab drivers as very important to the visitor experience,” says Greg 10 CITY MAY 11-17, 2016

LaDuca, senior director of membership and visitor services for VisitRochester. The driver helps form a visitor’s first impression of the city, he says. “There needs to be control over this group of workers,” says Shirley Sobczak of Workers United and the Rochester Taxi Drivers Association. “They’re all great guys and women. But like anything that serves the public, there has to be controls.” “For the safety of the people in our community and for the safety of our drivers, and for the fact that our drivers pay all these fees and insurances and they’re under rules and regulations, why should other people come in and be able to just be pirates?” she says. Colgate University’s Hodges says that the regulations imposed on taxi drivers have proved valuable to cities, customers, and drivers. “They not only guarantee a set fare, a good vehicle, but they also protect the drivers by keeping out excess competition,” he says, by limiting the number of cabs. With ride-sharing companies, he says, the customers have no idea who is up front or their skill level. “Uber’s desire to avoid regulations doesn’t really stand up to scrutiny because they’re basically doing the same tasks as the taxi companies but trying to get around the regulations,” Hodges says. “It casualizes a job that is very much a public utility.” Zubin Soleimany, of the New York Taxi Workers Alliance, says that the goal right now is to keep educating the community about ride sharing and its potential effect on cab drivers and to keep broadening the unions’ and cab drivers’ coalition of supporters. Another goal is to create a single app that all Rochester cab drivers can operate off of, which would improve the taxi experience for riders and provide additional work to full-time professionals, he says. “In a city that’s sort of suffered the economic losses that this place has, that would be real job growth,” Soleimany says, “not 1,000 college students working a couple of hours here and there.” Includes reporting by Jeremy Moule.

Dining

Coco Garden is the only Malaysian restaurant in Upstate New York, and is worth it for the adventurous diner. A lot of the menu is based around shrimp, like the (left) jumbo prawns in special sauce, but there are dishes influenced by other Asian cultures, like the (right) curry-based roti cani appetizer. PHOTOS BY MARK CHAMBERLIN

Malaysian destination Coco Garden 420 JEFFERSON ROAD, SUITE 12 SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY, 11 A.M. TO 10 P.M.; FRIDAY AND SATURDAY, 11 A.M. TO 11 P.M. 272-0001; ICOCOGARDEN.COM [ REVIEW ] BY CHRIS LINDSTROM

The more I spend time in Henrietta, I’m finding that the town’s true identity is hard to grasp. It is home to some of the most over-developed land in the county, and just generally lacks soul. As I explore the independent restaurant scene though, I see an intriguing dichotomy. Henrietta is home to the majority of Rochester’s Korean, Indian, and traditional Chinese places, and as it turns out, the singular Malaysian bastion. It appears that Coco Garden is the only Malaysian restaurant in upstate New York, which makes it a destination for those that grew up with these specific flavors. The aroma and flavor of shrimp was hard to avoid when going through the more Malaysian-style items on the menu, whether from belacan (dried, fermented shrimp paste), or fresh-cooked versions in different sizes. Those that have difficulty

with intense, fishy aromas may want to shy away, but they’ll be missing out on some fascinating food. A noodle soup called prawn mee ($8.95) was the easiest of the shrimp-based dishes to tackle, with a light dried shrimp broth, long egg noodles, slices of pork, fresh cooked shrimp, greens, and dried onions. The fishy aroma was definitely present but wasn’t overwhelming, and it benefitted from the housemade sambal hot sauce. The kang kung belacan ($11.95) was a generous serving of sautéed water spinach coated in a belacan and dried shrimp sauce that was intensely savory and nicely complemented the slightly bitter cooked greens. Rojak ($6.50) was one of the more challenging dishes from an American palate perspective. This isn’t your generic fruit salad. Chunks of cucumber, mango, and pineapple were coated in a dense, inky shrimp paste sauce and what seemed like a sweetened soy base, and then topped with a fritter and diced peanuts. It is an odd clash of sweet and umami that had me going back for more even when I wasn’t sure I liked it. If you want something adventurous, go for this, but don’t be surprised when your server gives you the sideways look when you order it.

The jumbo prawns in special sauce ($23.95) was a fantastic dish. While I enjoyed eating the bodies of the shrimp with the garlicky sauce, the best part was ripping the heads off and sucking out the briny, slightly livery goodness — it’s similar to the tomalley of a lobster. Nasi lemak ($8.95) is referred to as the national dish of Malaysia. At Coco Garden it comes as a mixed plate of long-cooked curry chicken, coconut rice, dried anchovy and onion, and sweet pickled vegetables. There are an abundance of strong flavors and textures on this plate: chewy, fishy anchovies; deep curry; and the crunch of the lightly pickled cabbage and peppers. It offered an interesting balance when eaten together with the coconut rice as the binder. A similar curry was the focal point of the roti canai ($4.75) appetizer. This dish has an Indian heritage but is popular in Malaysia and I can see why. The chicken and potato curry was full of roasted spices with a pleasant heat and developed flavors. Combining the curry with the crispy and chewy roti was such a perfect start to a meal that we ordered it on both visits. Mee goreng ($8.95) is another Indianinspired dish, and is based around noodles cooked in a dark squid and curry

flavored sauce. It’s a familiar and exciting combination that reminds me of a complex lo mein with hints of soy and a variety of main items like fried tofu, potato, egg, and shrimp. Both the satay ($7.95) and sarang burong ($12.95) are more approachable dishes for the less adventurous diner. The chicken and beef satay skewers has a sweet marinade and were grilled over charcoal but lacked the depth I was hoping for. Sarang burong reminded me of an open top chicken potpie with a fried taro ring serving as the shell and the familiar flavors of Chinese takeout like chicken, shrimp, and mixed vegetables as the filling. As we approach the summer months, both the ABC and the chendol ($4.95 each) are perfect desserts to cut the heat. Each is based around snow cone like ice covered in a dark, caramel flavored coconut sugar sauce that is rich and refreshing at the same time. The ABC uses red bean, corn and palm nuts to add texture while the chendal uses corn starch based pea shoot pieces and the same red beans.

Here’s another short and sweet blast of Rochester rock ‘n’ roll. I’m simply getting bombarded by EPs, like this soundtrack to an evening with your arms around your sweet one. On “There Goes The Heart,” River Lynch balances lyrical weight with instrumental dexterity and flight. The music, with or without the words, paints its audience and its needs vividly. That’s right, Lynch is singing to you. There are myriad influences rearing their heads in the mix, like The Drive-By Truckers, The Bottle Rockets, and The Beat Farmers — bands who all sling the honky-tonk unapologetically. Lynch and his band harness the urge to horse it into the boat with a thick, juicy, and appropriate guitar attack, and leaves room for the songs to do what they do.

Here’s The Televisionaries hangin’ 30 (I mean, I assume they all have all of their toes), and bustin’ the sonic surf with “Televisionaries 2.” The band is out of the surf shackles to take on some twangin’ lo-fi and land-locked rockabilly a la Buddy Holly. Lux would be proud. The band is great, though it doesn’t offer anything new. But that’s what happens when you have a near perfect sound perfected. The guitar tones are beautiful and almost identical, with reverb and slap-back serving as the secret sauce that keeps them kissin’ cousins. All cuts are slinky, sexy, swanky, sly, and mean. This young trio of expertly coifed gentlemen gets better and better every time I hear them. The Televisionaries are in their Ventures phase, but I can’t wait until they get wise to Link Wray. Rochester’s gonna rumble fo sho. “Televisionaries 2” is an ideal record for a house party, a road trip, or streaking a Red Wings game. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

Ray Paul is all about the snap and crackle of a pop song: its hook, its catchiness, its undeniable sing-along and finger-snap appeal. Want proof? Just dig Paul’s new CD, “Whimsicality,” on his own Permanent Press Records label. “Whimsicality” is a mighty fine 10-song collection of power pop goodness. (Power pop is like garage rock without the trebley snarl and wail.) Paul and his all-star band know how to sneak up on the electricity without waking the demons of volume. The album is still a healthy slab of rock ‘n’ roll, though. Songs like “You Don’t Have To Prove Your Love,” with its stop and start swing and harmony, grab you by the ears immediately. You say you dig Merseybeat? Just give “Pretty Flamingo” a spin or two or three. And “In My World” is pure Brit-pop bop. There are hints of Paul Weller in Ray Paul’s pen. The whole affair has been a long time 14 CITY MAY 11-17, 2016

in the making — what with other projects and geography dictating what Paul could do. Ultimately, it wound up in Rochester where it all began. Paul started rockin’ the Rochester scene in 1964 with The Centurymen. For the remainder of the decade he moved around town to play in other outfits like The Most LTD, The Regent Street V, The Raile, Nasty Tone, and Ragamuffin. Paul remained on the scene stirring things up before hitting the road in 1975. “That’s when I moved to Boston,” Paul says. Boston is where Paul’s career really took off in 1978 with the first record, “Lady Be Mine Tonight” b/w “Hold It,” released on Euphoria records. Due to the buzz created by impressive airplay, he put a band together that came out six months later. “We were treated more as a recording act than a band that just played bars,” Paul says. The band, Ray Paul and RPM, was together from 1978 to 1980, when Paul shifted operations west to Los Angeles. He landed a job in the music business, running Permanent Press Records. “We mostly did re-issues,” he says. “We had something like 24 releases; bands like Badfinger and The Sponge Tones.” But the music bug kept biting. Ray wanted to play.

“I always wanted to record again,” he says. “I was constantly writing songs.” After 22 years in the California sun, Paul returned to Rochester and formed 28IF. The band played the region for four years before breaking up in 2010. The group was gone, but for Paul, the old spark had been re-ignited, so he assembled an all-star cast — Clem Burke, Emitt Rhodes, Terry Draper, Gar Francis, and Walter Clevenger — and began recording in studios in L.A.; Toronto; Highland Park, New Jersey; and Rochester. Paul says it’s more of a collaborative project than a solo outing. “It’s a solo album with friends,” he says. “It’s the most fun I’ve ever had doing a project.” And since the members of his studio band have prior commitments, Paul has put together a live band. It features Paul on bass and vocals, Bob Janneck on lead guitar, Billy Eberts on drums, and Dan Eilenberg on rhythm guitar. It’s 2016 and Ray Paul is 66 years old; 52 of those years spent as a musician. “I should have been a doctor,” he says. “But I’ve always gone where my heart was and I’ve been fortunate to do the things I love.”

The underlying style might change a little — from rootsrock and rockabilly to country-noir — but Eilen Jewell’s beautiful, soft voice is always the anchor. The singer-songwriter will touch your heart — or break it — over the course of her latest album “Sundown Over Ghost Town,” which is influenced by her move back to Idaho, her home state, after years away.

ZYDECO | PRESTON FRANK

You don’t have to look that hard when tracing back through the Creole and Zydeco heritage, the music’s blood is Type Frank. Preston Frank’s family — he’s the big papa donchyaknow — is at the heart of traditional Louisiana music and has been so for decades. Preston has eased up on touring a tad, and the reigns have been handed off to his children. Consequently any time you can see the master live, you’d better do it. Boogie! Preston Frank will play Wednesday, May 11, 8 p.m., at Abilene Bar & Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. $10-$15. abilenebarandlounge.com.

METAL | ANVIL

Anvil demonstrates several undeniable truths: After 39 years, the band continues to rock; and its sophomore album, 1982’s “Metal on Metal,” is still a classic. The documentary “Anvil: The Story of Anvil” — the cover features frontman Steve “Lips” Kudlow wearing nothing except a strategically placed guitar — paints a charming portrait of the band that has endured while never having reached the heights like some of its peers. Anvil may not pack arenas, but the passion that Lips and drummer Robb Reiner bring to the stage is real, and it’s made even better when it’s right in your face. Anvil performs with Lich King, Obsessor, and Clyde on Sunday, May 15, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 9 p.m. $15-$20. bugjar.com; facebook.com/anvilmetal. — BY ROMAN DIVEZUR [ VOCALS ]

Dance A new edge “Ballet on the Edge” FRIDAY, MAY 13, THROUGH SUNDAY, MAY 15 CALLAHAN THEATER, NAZARETH COLLEGE ARTS CENTER, 4245 EAST AVENUE 8 P.M. ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY; 2 P.M. ON SUNDAY $37-$47; ARTSCENTER.NAZ.EDU; ROCHESTERCITYBALLET.ORG [ INTERVIEW ] BY CASEY CARLSEN

“Ballet on the Edge,” the upcoming Rochester City Ballet program, is notable for two significant reasons: The performance is the company’s first to be choreographed by new Artistic Director David Palmer, and the ballet “Under the Moonlight,” which will have its world premiere, is the first new official work set to David Bowie’s music since the musician’s death in January. RCB will perform “Ballet on the Edge” on Friday, May 13, through Sunday, May 15, at Nazareth College Arts Center. Performances are at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. on Sunday. Palmer joined the company last November when Jamey Leverett, the former artistic director, officially stepped down to focus on her position as artistic director of the Timothy Draper Center for Dance Education, RCB’s feeder school. Palmer’s choreography will also be featured in “Adiemus,” which he created with Yanis Pikieris. Webster native and RCB alumni Jim Nowakowski (recently featured on the reality show “So You Think You Can Dance”) will perform “Exit,” and Miami Ballet principals Jennifer Kronenberg and Carlos Guerra will perform a duet from Liam Scarlett’s “Viscera.” City Newspaper recently sat down with Palmer to gain some insight into his background, experience, and goals for the company. An edited transcript of that conversation follows. City: You come to Rochester City Ballet from Washington Ballet, a much larger company. What attracted you to RCB? David Palmer: The position literally fell from

the sky. My wife, Stephanie Walz, and I were in New York City for the 75th anniversary of American Ballet Theatre. The next morning, we were at brunch in the Village and we had invited all these people, and Beth Bartholomew, the ballet mistress at Rochester City Ballet, showed up. I’d danced with her in the Joffrey Ballet in the 90’s. She showed up and told me they were looking for a new director. 18 CITY MAY 11-17, 2016

I started looking into things and it looked like the schools were good and the suburban life at least was nice. With two young daughters that was part of the buy-in for me. During your 35-year career you have both danced as a principal and choreographed for major companies. How does your experience benefit RCB?

Experience is a really polite way of saying maturity. Maturity is a polite way of saying that one is getting older. Maturity doesn’t mean you soften, but you find a way to spare people from your ambition, anxiety, and drive. When you get a little older Rochester City Ballet will perform “Ballet on the Edge” this you come to understand yourself weekend. The program will feature “Under the Moonlight,” better, which enables you to express the first new official work to be set to David Bowie’s music yourself better to other people, since the musician’s death. PHOTO BY ERICH CAMPING and maybe, understand everyone is not like you. You perhaps learn New York City in 1983, I was under to reconcile those differences. At the impression that I knew nothing. I the end of the day, if you want to go for your thought I’d see something amazingly dream, you can’t do it alone. You have to have different than in Australia. But I was able people that support you, and maybe for them, to respect where I’d come from, and to that’s their beginning. realize that the Australian Ballet is one of the greatest companies in the world. I felt Will you be fully in charge of choosing disappointment in NYC, but got to work the ballets RCB will dance? with some amazing people. I took class Yes. From an artistic perspective, that is literally behind Baryshnikov at the barre my realm. The strategic planning of this organization was very important to me in taking when I was 22 years old. this position. At the same time, I was already What was he like? creating artistic plans — like selecting ballets — that would coincide with the strategic planning. His approach was like a pit bull. Tenacious. His way of working — just so impressive. That alone elevated my career. You have also had your own company, Maximum Dance Company.

I created Maximum Dance with Yanis Pikieris; we had been principal dancers with Miami Dance together. We developed Maximum between 1995 and 1996. So, we’d both been principal dancers with major companies that would have between 70 and 80 dancers. And there’s always a core group in big dance companies, a group that dances all the time. Our idea was to take just that core group of great dancers and form a company. We didn’t want the 70; we wanted the 10. We created 83 ballets, and had over 30 world premieres. How has being Australian influenced your dance aesthetic?

No one has ever asked me that before, but there is some impact. When I arrived in

What are your goals for RCB?

What I want for this company — I guess it’s akin to my vision — is for it to be a window into the dance world. The neat thing about a window is that it goes two ways. I want to look around the world and take things from the outside that are pertinent, poignant, entertaining, and powerful. And I want us to be able to create things here that are all those things. I want the dance world to look through the other side and find things that they want. I want us to be a portal. That possibility attracted me to RCB. I think we can do it, so why not? If you can do it, why not?

POTENTIAL RESEARCH PARTICIPANTS NEEDED for a research study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of an investigational topical solution for seborrheic keratosis of the trunk, extremities and face. LECTURE | PENNY WOLIN

Visual anthropologist Penny Wolin for the last 25 years has combined photographic portraiture with oral interviews to research Jewish civilization in America. She is the creator of visual and verbal studies of people and their relationship to place, including “Guest Register,” a 1975 body of work that documented each occupant of the St. Francis Hotel in Hollywood; the 1978 “Jackalopes, Cowboys, and Coalmines: A Photographic Survey of Wyoming”; and the 2000 book, “The Jews of Wyoming: Fringe of the Diaspora.” Wolin will be present at George Eastman Museum (900 East Avenue) on Thursday, May 12, to discuss her new book, “Descendants of Light: American Photographers of Jewish Ancestry.” The book is the product of eight years of traveling throughout America, and photographing and interviewing more than 70 of the most important American photographers, including Annie Leibovitz, Joel Meyerowitz, and Ryszard Horowitz. The audiovisual lecture, consisting of excerpts from her interviews and full-screen photographs of the photographers and their ancestors, will take place in the Dryden Theatre at 6 p.m. A book signing will follow. Admission is $6 for adults, $3 for students with ID, and free for members of the George Eastman Museum.

ON DISPLAY JUNE 1 THROUGH SEPTEMBER 30 INSTALLED IN PARK NEXT TO ROCHESTER CONTEMPORARY ART CENTER, 137 EAST AVENUE 461-2222; ROCHESTERCONTEMPORARY.ORG [ PREVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

During the last Super Bowl, an appeal to consider domestic water usage appeared as a halftime commercial from Colgate, in which a man kept the faucet running while he brushed his teeth. All the while, different hands reached in and out of the sink, filling cups, rinsing vegetables, and bringing hands full of the priceless liquid to mouths. Up to three gallons of water are wasted every time the tap is left open, the superimposed text declared. In recent years, discussion about fresh water resources in the US has become more and more intense. While California is experiencing unprecedented drought, and its related fallout such as wildfires and water rationing, by comparison, our region is rich with fresh water resources … at this moment. This summer, Rochesterians will be asked to consider our individual impact on these resources, as Rochester Contemporary Art Center kicks off its new public art program with a watercentric installation by Kevin Dartt. The work, “What You Put In,” will be a series

of sinks in the shape of the Great Lakes, installed on the grounds of Christ Church next to RoCo. Dartt says his goal with this work is “to break our complacency of abusing fresh water” by bringing the Great Lakes to a human scale. Because of our strong anthropocentric attitude, “individuals do not necessarily regulate their own actions toward the environment on a daily basis,” he says. “With our large population little occurrences of land abuse add up.” The cast concrete sinks will not only take the scale and shape of each lake, the bowls of the sinks feature the real lakes’ underwater topography as well. Faucets will continuously fill each sink with recirculating water as a reflection of our own domestic usage. “It will be interesting to see how people will react” to the sculpture, Dartt says. “And if they chose to take care of this sculpture as a public space,” Dartt says. “If garbage ends up in one of the ‘lakes,’ will a person clean it out or continue to add to it?” This question is posed through the ambiguity of the title, “What You Put In,” Dartt says. “Maybe we will find an invasive species in it one day, or as a fountain, people might throw coins in. In this regard the sculpture reflects how we are stewards of our own environment both public and private.” These particular lake-shaped forms have appeared in Dartt’s work before; this work is a continuation of his Great Lakes

Project. In the past, these topographical containers have manifested as prototypes for mop buckets, water-filtering carafes, and the net of a pool skimmer. These consumer products interact with water in some manner, “scaled down to allow a person complete control over a large body of water,” Dartt says. Dartt earned a Master of Fine Art in Sculpture from Alfred University in 2015, and holds a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Binghamton University. He has previous public art experience with his “Mt. Marcy Couch,” an interactive piece of mountain-shaped furniture installed on the grounds of Governors Island in New York City. That work juxtaposed domestic with environmental elements as well, and sought to confront “our transition from a society that has been predominantly living in the natural land to a culture that is constantly inside an artificial space,” Dartt says in his artist statement. “What You Put In” will remain installed from June 1 through September 30, and is accessible to the public free of charge, day and night. A picnic and artist talk will be held on site on July 14. RoCo will start its public art project with two sculptures per year, with the hope to grow the scope over time. “We are always looking for new ways to foster creative energy here in Rochester,” says RoCo Executive Director Blue Cease. “And I have been dreaming of a program of temporary sculpture for many years.” Each installation will remain on site for several months; some will directly relate to exhibitions held in the art center itself, while others will be presented in partnership with other organizations. Future installations will be presented by a range of professional and emerging artists from Rochester and beyond, curated by RoCo and guests. RoCo will solicit future projects through a request for proposals from regional and national artists.

Issues surrounding mental health in America are still lacking proper representation and widespread discussion. The annual Reel Mind Theatre and Film Series addresses a spectrum of mental illness and the various ways it impacts individuals, families, and our wider culture, while providing a message of hope. The series’ 8th season kicks off this week with an art exhibit and film screening on Tuesday, May 17, at the Memorial Art Gallery (500 University Avenue). The evening begins at 6 p.m. in the gallery’s atrium with “Breaking Silence,” the 5th annual exhibit of artwork by mental health consumers, organized by the Mental Health Association’s Creative Wellness Opportunities. The documentary “Turning the Art World Inside Out,” about “Outsider Art” and its visionary creators, will be screened at 7 p.m., and is followed by a Q&A. The series continues with screenings of “Planet Asperger” on Tuesday, May 31; “Hollywood Beauty Salon” on June 14; and “Mind/Game: The Unquiet Journey of Chamique Holdsclaw” on June 28. Each of the screenings (except this week’s) will take place at the Cinema Theatre (957 South Clinton Avenue) at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8 per event, or $28 for the series, and may be purchased online at reelmindfilmfest.org, or in person at NAMI-Rochester (320 North Goodman Street).

THEATER | “DIRTY DANCING”

SPECIAL EVENT | THE MAKERS MASQUERADE

To close out its 2015-16 season, Rochester Broadway Theatre League will host “Dirty Dancing,” the stage adaptation of the 1980’s box office hit. The story of Baby, a 17-year-old who’s spending the summer at a Catskills resort with her parents, and Johnny, the resort’s dance instructor, comes to life with show-stopping dance moves and all the beloved songs, including “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life,” “Hungry Eyes,” and “Do You Love Me.”

To engage the 21-and-older community and give a sneak peek into life after hours at a museum, the Rochester Museum and Science Center hosts an After Dark events series, complete with museum access and a cash bar. This Friday, RMSC will host a “Makers Masquerade,” combining mask-making and ballroom dancing tutorials with interactive 3D printing and a look at the RMSC’s 1940’s collection vault. Food will be available for purchase from the museum cafe, Pudgy Girl Bakery, Chef’s Mobile Kitchen, and Smokin’ Pete’s BBQ.

“Dirty Dancing” will be performed through Sunday, May 15, at the Auditorium Theatre, 885 East Main Street. 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday; 8 p.m. on Friday; 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Saturday; and Sunday at 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. $32.50-$82.50. 222-5000; rbtl.org. — BY LEAH STACY

THEATER | “ARMS AND THE MAN”

Beginning Friday, Classics Theater of Rochester will present “Arms and The Man,” one of George Bernard Shaw’s first really successful plays. The comedy is built around the 1885 Serbian-Bulgarian War and follows Raina, a young Bulgarian woman who aids the Swiss Captain Bluntschli, and years later, meets him again. The witty play deals with the hypocrisy of human nature and the futility of war — with a little romance thrown in for good measure. The play is the fifth installment in Classics Theater of Rochester’s “Shaw” series at MuCCC. “Arms and The Man” will play at MuCCC, 142 Atlantic Avenue, on Friday, May 13, through Saturday, May 21. 8 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday; and 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 15. General admission tickets are $15, and student and senior tickets are $12. Purchase online at muccc.org. — BY LEAH STACY

All those broken bodies would get in the way of our popcorn thrills, so they remain (PG-13), DIRECTED BY ANTHONY AND unseen, ensuring that everything remains JOE RUSSO relatively bloodless and suitably PG-13. NOW PLAYING In March, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” attempted to address this issue head-on, [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW making the destruction and massive loss of lives a prime motivator in the titular feud. The result Every summer, like clockwork, our planet was only mildly successful. Just two months later, comes under siege. As blockbuster season another superhero smackdown offers a superior sets in, a familiar scene inevitably unfolds take on a remarkably similar idea. in multiplexes across the country: aliens, “The Winter Soldier” directors Anthony and Joe natural disasters, or vengeful baddies are Russo return for “Captain America: Civil War,” and unleashed upon major metropolitan areas. The successfully reframe the climactic battles that have earth cracks, buildings crumble, and untold ended so many Marvel movies before it. A misstep thousands are lost in the rubble. And we in the during a mission in Lagos results in the telekinetic audience are implicitly expected to look the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) accidentally tearing a hole in an office building and killing dozens. The incident leads to the drafting of the Sokovia Accords — named after the location of the climactic battle in “Age of Ultron” — which seeks to make the Avengers subject to oversight by the United Nations. Still reeling from his guilt Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. in “Captain America: Civil War.” over creating the PHOTO COURTESY WALT DISNEY STUDIOS

homicidal Ultron, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) immediately agrees to the new measure. Meanwhile Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) — wary of the Avengers becoming a tool to further whatever secret agenda the government happens to be pursuing that day — refuses to sign. Their differing ideologies cause a rift in the Avengers team that forces the remaining members to choose sides like a playground game of kickball. Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) side with Cap; Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), War Machine (Don Cheadle), and Vision (Paul Bettany) go with Iron Man. Then security footage from a terrorist attack implicates the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), Cap’s best bud turned brainwashed supersoldier. Captain America sets out to protect his friend, and the stage is set for a conflict that quickly turns violent. Of course, there’s another player pulling the strings. The Russo brothers are building on the groundwork laid throughout 13 prior films in Marvel Studios’ massive, interconnected universe. We’ve gotten to know these characters, and knowing their personalities adds to the satisfaction in seeing how this all plays out. Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely do a nice job exploring the opposing sides of the debate, and make it clear where each character is coming from. In exploring the issues of accountability and collateral damage, there are obvious parallels to the real world and the responsibilities of modern warfare and American intervention.

Film Previews Full film reviews available at rochestercitynewspaper.com.

For a summer blockbuster, it’s relatively nuanced stuff. But at a certain point their level-headed debates need to stop and the fists need to come out because, hey, that’s what we paid to see. During all of this, the Russo brothers find time to introduce two great new characters: Black Panther (a wonderful Chadwick Boseman), an African prince turned crimefighter, and Spider-Man, played by Tom Holland who portrays the webslinger as a cocky, affably motor-mouthed teen awed by the idea that his idols have asked for his help. Even with all those characters flying around — despite the title, this is really the third Avengers film, with only Hulk, Thor, and Nick Fury MIA — Captain America and his mission remain at the fore. The central conflict remains personal, and those emotional stakes are what make it all work. The film may be packed, but the Russo brothers find time to let things breathe. There’s a sense of joy they’re able to bring to the material, never more so than in a standout sequence in which both sides clash in a battle royale on an airport tarmac. In the most comic booky fight we’ve seen put to film, a dozen heroes clash, and demonstrate their various powers with witty choreography and fan-pleasing inventiveness (even if the camerawork is sometimes too shaky to take it all in). This infectious enthusiasm and manic energy takes nothing away from the Russo’s ability to sell the dark moments, and this story does go to some dark places. Our heroes battle it out, but they never let us lose sight of why it all matters.

Classic Craftsman Along Culver 530 Hazelwood Terrace Culver Road is one of Rochester’s oldest streets and, although few of the nineteenth century farmhouses remain from when it was once the city line, the homes and businesses that line the road tell the story of our rapid growth during the twentieth century. Following the City’s annexation of parts of Brighton and Irondequoit, several former farm and nursery properties along Culver Road began to be developed in the 1910s for residential real estate. One of these nurserymen was George W. Olver, founder of Fairview Nurseries, who responded to the demand for housing by building several modest homes in the vicinity of Culver and Merchants Roads, as well as his own distinctive home in 1915 just a block from his former nursery office. Commanding your attention from its corner lot, this distinctive Craftsman style bungalow with its broad gently curved roof eaves, plethora of windows, half-timbered stucco façade, and wrap-around front porch beckons your entry. Passing through the substantial oak and glass paneled doors at the vestibule, the large living room stretches before you with its quarter-sawn oak floors embellished with mahogany inlays, Roman brick hearth, and continuous wall frieze framed by oversized oak moldings. A pair of French doors at left lead to the enclosed sunroom section of the porch. At the far end of the living room, at one time framed by a wood colonnade, is the ravishing dining room with full-height quarter-sawn oak wall paneling, countless double-hung windows, beamed

ceiling, and a coveted original built-in sideboard complete with art glass cabinet doors. At the left of the sideboard is the entry to the kitchen; to the right is the door to the main hall where the elaborate wood floors continue. Off of the hall are two well-proportioned bedrooms and a shared bathroom. The kitchen is large with plentiful counter space provided by the recent clean, white cabinetry. Two doors provide access to the rear entry and basement stairs, as well as a large first floor laundry room. The second floor is accessed from a quaint rear entry vestibule and stair and contains two apartments, which this author suspects to be original. A compact studio has a charming bathroom with period tile. The large one bedroom apartment has an arched reading nook and large enclosed porch off of its living area. The basement is large and unfinished with utility and laundry spaces as well as storage rooms. The original two-car garage is graced with the same elegant curved roofline and still retains the original ceramic tile shingles. With its stunning Craftsman style design and income potential, this prominent residence along Culver Road is listed at $185,000 and surely will not last long.

FORECLOSURE OF TAX LIENS BY THE CITY OF ROCHESTER STATE OF NEW YORK SUPREME COURT COUNTY OF MONROE IN THE MATTER OF THE FORECLOSURE OF TAX LIENS PURSUANT TO TITLE 4 OF PART E OF ARTICLE IX OF THE CHARTER OF THE CITY OF ROCHESTER.

LIST OF DELINQUENT TAXES AS OF JULY 1, 2015 PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that on April 13, 2016, the Corporation Counsel of the City of Rochester filed in the office of the Monroe County Clerk a list of parcels of property on which the City of Rochester holds a lien for taxes, assessments, fees or other charges which is at least one year old and which the City of Rochester intends to foreclose by an action in rem pursuant to Title 4 of Part E of Article IX of the Charter of the City of Rochester. A copy of that list was published on April 13, 2016. The foreclosure list contains as to each such parcel: 1. The tax account number and address; 2. The name of the last known owner; 3. The amount of each tax lien, except for a $175.00 charge which has been added to each tax lien pursuant to Section 9-123(A)(3)of the City Charter but which is not reflected on the printed list. All persons having an interest in the real property described in the foreclosure list are hereby notified that the filing of the list constitutes the commencement by the City of Rochester of an action in the Supreme Court, Monroe County, to foreclose the tax liens therein described by an action in rem and that the list constitutes a notice of pendency of action and a complaint by the City of Rochester against each parcel of land therein described to enforce the satisfaction of such tax liens. This action is brought against the real property only. No personal judgment will be entered in this action for the delinquent taxes, assessments, fees or other charges.

A copy of the foreclosure list has been filed in the office of the City Treasurer and will remain open for public inspection up to and including September 30, 2016, which is the redemption deadline date. Any person may on or before that date redeem any parcel on the foreclosure list by paying to the City Treasurer the amount of all delinquent taxes, assessments, fees and other charges stated on the foreclosure list, plus the $175.00 charge referred to above, plus accrued interest and late payment charges. Any person having any interest in any parcel on the foreclosure list may, at any time up to the redemption deadline date, serve a verified notice of interest or an answer upon the Corporation Counsel setting forth in detail the nature and amount of his interest or any defense or objection to the foreclosure. The notice of interest or answer must also be filed in the office of the Monroe County Clerk. Where a valid notice of interest is served, the parcel will be held for a foreclosure auction pursuant to Section 9-143 of the City Charter. Any person who fails to redeem or to serve a notice of interest or an answer by the redemption deadline date shall be barred thereafter from asserting his interest in the pending foreclosure action, and judgment in foreclosure may be granted without regard for, and in extinguishment of, the interest of any such person.

LPA Programs is available at http://www.nyshcr.org/ Funding/Awards/. This is the first tier of review in a 2-tiered process. The specific addresses of homes are not known at this time because the participating property owner identification process is ongoing. Therefore, under 24 CFR Part 58.15 (Tiering) and 24 CFR Part 58.32 (Project Aggregation), HTFC will use a tiered approach and once specific sites are determined, each site will be reviewed in compliance with the instructions established in the Tier 1 Review. No physical work will begin on properties until all levels of environmental review are complete and found to be in compliance. Tier 1 review addresses specific environmental factors for which compliance has been documented, regardless of specific site locations. It prevents repeating the same compliance factors on a Tier 2 site-specific basis, once all participating homeowners are known. The following 2015 HOME LPA Program will be undertaken in this publishing area. An Environmental Review Record (ERR) that documents the environmental determinations for this Program is on file at http:// www.nyshcr.org/Programs/ NYSHome/ and the following location: Home Owner-Occupied Program, for purposes of using funds to purchase 16 single family (2 unit) properties that will be rehabilitated to provide accessible units for the homebuyer and a renter in the City of Rochester to establish more accessible

FORECLOSURE RESCUE SCAMS Be careful of people who approach you with offers to “save” your home. There are individuals who watch for notices of foreclosure actions in order to unfairly profit from a homeowner’s distress. You should be extremely careful about any such promises and any suggestions that you pay them a fee or sign over your deed. State law requires anyone offering such services for profit to enter into a contract which fully describes the services they will perform and fees they will charge, and which prohibits them from taking any money from you until they have completed all such promised services.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD

Jail Is Hell

The eye-catching Vietnamese model and Playboy (Venezuela edition) Playmate Angie Vu complained to the New York Daily News in April that her five-plus months in jail in Brooklyn have been “torture” and “cruel” because of her lack of access to beauty care. Vu is fighting extradition to France for taking her 9-year-old daughter in violation of the father’s custody claim and is locked up until a federal judge rules. Among her complaints: “turning pale” in the “harsh light”; lack of “Guerlain’s moisturizer”; inability to look at herself for months (because glass mirrors are prohibited); and “worrying” about being hit on by “lesbians” (thus causing “wrinkles”). At least, she told the reporter, she has found God in jail and passes time reading the Bible.

Questionable Judgments — Chef Mahbub Chowdhury pleaded

guilty in April to food and hygiene violations in Swindon (England) Magistrates Court after inspectors found “brown fingerprints” in the kitchen at his Yeahya Flavour of Asia carry-out restaurant. Chowdhury was candid about his “cultural” habit of bypassing toilet paper and using his hand to clean himself. The plastic bottle with the fingerprints, Chowdbury said, contained water that he normally used instead of the toilet paper, and his lawyer argued that since the bottle was never actually lab-tested, the brown spots could have been “spices.” — England’s Brighton and Hove City Council, striving to be progressive, issued a directive to parents of new school students (kids as young as age 4) calling

on them to mark the gender identity they prefer — and notes that any child who identifies as other than male or female should leave the space blank and consult with officials individually. (Critics, according to The Sun, expressed that school should be for “developing” such identities without the necessity of declaring them so early in life.)

Unclear on the Concept — “Zero tolerance” claimed another

victim, in Charlotte, North Carolina, in April, when Jaden Malone, 12, came to his bullied friend’s aid, was knocked down himself and repeatedly punched in the head by the bully, and pushed the boy off of him to avoid further damage — but was himself suspended for three days by his charter school Invest Collegiate. A school official pointed out that the bully got five days, and besides, the policy against “all” physical violence is very clear. (After having Jaden treated for a concussion, his mother promptly withdrew him from the school.) — Ms. Madi Barney, 20, courageously publicly reported her own rape accusation recently in Provo, Utah, and as a result has been disciplined as a student at Brigham Young University for allegedly violating the school’s “honor code.” (She is barred from withdrawing from courses or re-registering.) Whether the sex was consensual must be investigated by Provo police, but BYU officials said they had heard enough to charge Barney with the no-no of premarital sex. (Critics decried the advantage BYU thus gives rapists of BYU females — since the women face the additional fear of university reprisals irrespective of the criminal case.)

[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 28 ]

[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): The need to settle down or take a relationship to the next level will spark a change in your personal life. Your eagerness can lead to uncertainty or emotional manipulation. Before you jump into a situation impulsively, make sure you are ready for the long-term outcome. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll have plenty of romantic opportunities if you attend events geared toward singles or you join a reputable dating service. Someone with similar qualities and common interests will grab your attention. Don’t hesitate to introduce someone you like to family.

You’ll get the approval you need to move forward. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): An encounter with someone extroverted will leave you confused and uncertain when it comes to romantic encounters. Don’t be gullible or too open regarding your personal life. A reserved approach to love and a realistic response to someone claiming to be picture-perfect will help you avoid heartache. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Follow your heart, and let your emotions take over. Someone who draws you mentally and physically may not be your usual type of partner, but given a chance, you will discover you have more in common than

you first thought. Don’t let a difference in background deter you from moving forward. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Attracting attention won’t be a problem, but holding someone’s interest will. You’ll be drawn to partners who have very different values than you, making it difficult to find resolve or a happy outcome. Plan to have fun, but don’t lead someone on by pretending to be someone you are not. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Look for the partner who offers practicality and patience and who shares the same concerns as you. Attending a conference or retreat or taking part in an event that deals with self-help will trigger a conversation with

someone you relate to wholeheartedly. Don’t be afraid to make a bold, romantic move. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Personal changes based on selfhelp books, philosophic retreats or a trip that challenges you will help you decipher who you are and what you want in a partner. Don’t be too eager to jump into a relationship with someone controlling because it’s the path of least resistance. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’ll be attracted to someone you work with or who is off limits. Think twice before you divulge your interest. A friend or relative will have a much better alternative for you when it comes to a good match. Don’t

hesitate to accept a blind date. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your aggressive, outgoing behavior will backfire when it comes to finding that special someone. Stick to simple suggestions and offer friendship. Getting to know the person you fancy and presenting an honest portrayal of you and what you have to offer will bring the highest return. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You have everything going for you when it comes to finding the perfect partner. Your charm, reliability and worldliness will make you an attractive package. Don’t rule out someone from your past if you still feel a connection. Love has no boundaries when someone feels like the right fit.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t be fooled by someone claiming to be the perfect match. Look deeper, and you’ll discover a chameleon trying to mirror your every move, emotion and thought. Time is on your side, and dating multiple people will help you decide what and whom you want in your life. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A stable, strong, long-lasting relationship is within reach. Don’t look in unfamiliar places or subscribe to a dating service. Consider someone from your past, and make an effort to reconnect. Being able to share memories and history will give you a base to build a solid relationship.
