Poor transit stifles Rochester
Recent articles highlighted Rochester’s dependency on parking and illustrated how our overreliance on parking limits downtown development. This in turn limits how many jobs can be located in the city, and many people are beginning to make the connections between the location of jobs, access to jobs, and our debilitating poverty problem. Downtown Rochester had more offices and employment when a good transit system allowed people to access downtown without land-devouring parking. Over the last few decades, we have focused almost entirely on parking instead of public transit. The result is that downtown can no longer support the density that it once had. And to make matters worse, parking lots and parking garages have thinned downtown’s vitality further by creating dead zones between buildings. Where jobs are located matters enormously, and our discussion about poverty is not giving nearly enough attention to the issues of proximity to jobs and access to jobs. We have lost thousands of jobs in the city, not just at Kodak, but at many other office and industrial locations, too. While some of this job loss has been partially replaced by jobs in dispersed outer suburban locations, transit cannot economically serve those locations. 2 CITY
JUNE 8-14, 2016
Our first new major manufacturer in the region (1366 Technologies, which will be located on the western edge of Genesee County) will be located well outside of the reach of transit, while ample industrial space in our region’s core lies vacant. The result of these vacancies is that far fewer jobs are now accessible to those who need them the most. A recent study by the Brookings Institution shows that only 10.4 percent of Rochester’s jobs are reachable via transit within 45 minutes. We need to locate more jobs in the center city if we are to make real progress on poverty and grow the city’s tax base. We need major improvements in transit in order to enable city job growth and to provide access to those jobs. Cities such as Tucson (which is smaller and less dense than Rochester) are successfully doing exactly that, and it is imperative that we learn from their examples. DEWAIN FELLER
Lawmakers ignore dangers of lawn chemicals
While lawmakers pay attention to products like triclosan (News blog, April 27), they have largely overlooked the threat to human health and the environment posed by lawn care chemicals. The chemical lawn care industry is contaminating our drinking water, destroying the environment, and killing our pets, our children, and us. Numerous studies link lawn care chemicals to breast, lung, prostate, brain and pancreatic cancer, as well as Parkinson’s disease, Hodgkin’s disease, stillbirth, and birth defects. A study in the Journal of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine found that children whose lawns are chemically treated
have 6.5 times greater risk of leukemia than children living in untreated homes. Another study found that dogs have a higher risk of canine malignant lymphoma after a lawn has been chemically treated. Exploiting a lack of regulation, companies have aggressively cultivated a consumer friendly image, while at the same time continuing to use chemicals that are illegal in other countries. These chemicals contaminate groundwater and can drift up to a mile, becoming absorbed through skin, mouth, nose, and eyes, and are easily tracked into the home, providing countless opportunities for recontamination. A study of 120 homes where elevated incidences of breast, colorectal, lung, and prostate cancers were reported found high indoor concentrations of popular lawn chemicals, long after lawns had been treated. Although New York legislators finally acknowledged the threat to children in 2011 by banning the use of lawn chemicals in and around schools and daycare centers, lawmakers have spent the past five years in a silent denial while the chemical lawn care industry continues to wreak havoc on our households, our bodies, and our environment. Today, it’s a rare sight to see a lawn that isn’t chemically “treated” by a lawn care company. From strip malls to home properties, those little yellow flags are conspicuous reminders. KEVEN ADAMS
The challenge of public art Lost in the discussion about the removal of art from Greater Rochester International Airport
(“Bland Landing,” May 25) is the tricky question
about public art. While I
certainly have problems with Tom Cook’s dismissive tone in 1991, it is nonetheless true that much of the general public is either indifferent or outright hostile to some of the art in public spaces, and that these attitudes are not necessarily notorious “anti-art stances,” as Legislator Irene Gossin was then so quick to brand Cook’s. When the Vietnam memorial by artist Maya Lin was planned, negative reaction was swift. Some saw it as a “black gash of shame” or as a nihilistic slab. The planners quickly added a representational sculpture of three servicemen by Frederick Hart, yet the public got Maya Lin’s elegant wall, responded to the roll call of chiseled names upon it, and largely ignored the traditional figural piece. Getting it right is a challenge, and viewing art can be as well. But there needs to be some way for the public to reasonably access the piece. I really believe that we are all wired on some level to respond to form, symmetry, color, mass, weight, and whimsy. And, I might add, I never like art that is political and polarizing and little else. That said, I love the Midtown Clock of Nations, preposterous and pastel and maybe not politically correct. I am cheered to see it in its second life and would argue that it holds a place as a legitimate work of art, albeit of its time. I felt the same way about the Brian Shapiro mural “Views from the Sister Cities Bridge.” But notions that we need art at the airport to serve as an advertisement of the region’s rich culture of working artists strike me as wrongheaded, too. Why not let good art speak for itself? And please leave the Midtown clock (at least until baby boomers no longer travel). JOSEPH STRUBLE
Bring back airport art
I am a frequent traveler and was overjoyed when our airport featured spectacular sculpture and other art from our area. I loved seeing it as I was departing and coming home. I was, on the other hand, greatly distressed when so many pieces were removed over time, to be replaced by business messages and almost useless work spaces. Our airport is indeed way behind; cold and bland walls and spaces have been given over to crass competition for attention by local institutions that pay for the privilege of being in your face. The Frontier business space is almost always empty when I go to my gate. The airports that display fabulous art stand out in my travel memory. The art tells me something about what those places value and what travelers should remember about those places, even if people are just passing through. Examples include the changing art exhibits at the Philadelphia airport, the fine sweet grass craft displays in Charleston, and so many more. Even when I arrived at the small airport at Roanoke, I felt immediately welcomed by the Paley sculpture sitting outside the front entrance. Where is the fabulous art of our area: the displays of the deep and important history of women’s and African-Americans’ rights that mark us as unique in American history? And what about the nearby Finger Lakes, which provide us with so much regional beauty? We are so much more than our business enterprises. Get over the politics and put us back on the map of memory for those who live or travel here. MADELINE SCHMITT

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
Obama, Donald Trump, and America’s principles Last month in Japan, President Obama focused international attention on the kinds of principles that should define a great nation. In a careful, eloquent speech at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial, he mourned the losses there and all of the losses of that war and others. Acting as part teacher, part preacher, he noted that violence seems to have been woven into human nature from the beginning. And he urged that the world find ways to rise above that violence, that we “change our mindset about war.” The memory of those who died in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, he said, should remind us that “we have a shared responsibility to look directly into the eye of history and ask what we must do differently.” We should strive “to see our growing interdependence as a cause for peaceful cooperation and not violent competition; to define our nations not by our capacity to destroy, but by what we build.” “And perhaps above all,” he said “we must reimagine our connection to one another as members of one human race” and choose a future “in which Hiroshima and Nagasaki are known not as the dawn of atomic warfare, but as the start of our own moral awakening.” In a different time, in a different political climate, in a United States that was less fixated on hate and anger, people of every political persuasion might read Obama’s speech and be proud, of him, and of the country that elected him. But this is not that time. And so as Obama gave that speech, back at home the Republican Party’s candidate for president was hurling insults and threats, urging destruction, and stoking the anger of an apparently angerhungry, aggressive nation. And rather than repudiating him, one after another Republican leader has lined up behind him, putting the perceived interests of their political party above the needs of their country. And the person who will run against him, the only person who stands a chance at keeping him out of the White House, is a person who is widely disliked and distrusted. I’ve tried to resist the feeling that doom is staring this country in the face. But that’s becoming more and more difficult, and I’m not alone. You can hardly read any newspaper columnist today, liberal or conservative, and not find a sense of horror and dread.
I’ve tried to resist the feeling that doom is staring this country in the face. But that’s becoming more and more difficult.”
“Democracy, freedom, civilization — it all hangs by a thread,” the conservative Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker wrote recently. “America was always just an idea, a dream founded in the faith that men were capable of great good. It was a belief made real by an implausible convention of brilliant minds and the enduring courage of generations who fought and died. For what? Surely, not this.” “Donald Trump has taught me to fear my fellow American,” the Post’s Richard Cohen wrote. “I don’t mean the occasional yahoo who turns a Trump rally into a hate fest. I mean the ones who do nothing. Who are silent. Who look the other way. If you had told me a year ago that a hateful brat would be the presidential nominee of a major political party, I would have scoffed. Someone who denigrated women? Not possible. Someone who insulted Mexicans? No way. Someone who mocked the physically disabled? Not in America. Not in my America.” Not in mine either. And yet, as the primaries and the polls have proved, Trump has strong, passionate support. In his Hiroshima speech, Barack Obama described the future I want, laid out by a president who exemplifies our better nature. And I’m worried. America’s senseless anger and hatred is broader than I thought. And even if Hillary Clinton is able to eke out a win, that anger and hatred won’t go away. And that’s as big a threat to the country’s future as Trump himself.

The State Senate’s Insurance Committee passed legislation that would legalize ride-sharing services such as Uber in Upstate. The legislation requires the ride-sharing companies to provide automobile liability insurance coverage of at least $1 million for drivers; the insurance only has to cover the drivers while they have paid passengers. The bill still needs approval from the full Senate and
the Assembly, as well as Governor Andrew Cuomo.

LDC destroyer Cheryl Dinolfo: smashing scandal-choked LDC’s everywhere. FILE PHOTO
The County Legislature unanimously approved legislation last week that put County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo a step closer to dissolving three scandal-choked local development corporations. Dinolfo pledged to dissolve LDC’s during her county exec campaign last year. Though Lej Dems voted in favor of the legislation, they were not about to let the county administration and GOP legislators off without a scolding, since they spent years warning that LDC’s are ripe for abuse. And a recently concluded criminal case shows that the warnings were prudent. Ultimately, two LDC contractors, a former administration official, and Robert Wiesner, husband of former county executive Maggie Brooks, pleaded guilty to charges related to a bidrigging scheme. Democrats were generally restrained in their remarks. Legislator Vince Felder thanked Dinolfo for doing away with the LDC’s. And Legislator Josh Bauroth said that dissolving the LDC’s “is an action long overdue.”
Democratic Minority Leader Cynthia Kaleh delivered the literal “I told you so.” “You try to represent the taxpayers the best you can and I felt like we were not heeded in a great deal of what we said,” Kaleh told reporters after the meeting. The legislation is essentially a formal request to the State Assembly and Senate to pass bills allowing the county to borrow money to buy out service contracts with Monroe Newpower, Monroe Security and Safety Systems LDC, and Upstate Telecommunications Corporation. Once the county does that, the entities can dissolve and the county can assume control of their assets (which the county owned at one point, anyway). Dinolfo says that eliminating the LDC’s and bringing their operations in-house will save the county money; eliminating Monroe Newpower alone will yield more than $8 million in savings, she says. But her assertion contradicts Brooks’ oft-repeated defense of LDC’s, which she framed as an innovative and cost-saving approach to some government operations.

EMMA’s leaders say that the project is a mistake; a lot of work has gone into improving the neighborhood, and what EMMA needs is owner occupancy and families, not single-unit apartments. “You put mess on top of mess and you’re going to have a problem.” [ DOROTHY PARHAM, PASTOR ]
DEVELOPMENT | BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN
Housing project fails to win over EMMA leaders A housing complex heavy with onebedroom units is not what the struggling EMMA neighborhood needs, say leaders of the East Main, Mustard, and Atlantic Avenue neighborhood group. They want owner occupancy, stability, and stores befitting a corridor that’s an important gateway to downtown, they say. But the project’s backers are going ahead, anyway. The Community on East Main would be an investment in a neighborhood sorely lacking resources and commitment, they say. And the project has won the endorsement of the nearby Beechwood Neighborhood Coalition. The Community on East Main would consist of two buildings, one a conversion and one a new build on East Main between Mustard and Palmer streets. The project will be in front of the City of Rochester’s Planning Commission on June 13 and the Zoning Board on June 16. Home Leasing plans to convert Hillside’s three-story Cotter Building into 26 apartments and 2,500 square feet of commercial space for Hillside offices and a small, streetside café. The second part of the project would be a new, three-story building with 50 apartments on East Main and Breck streets. The parcel would also encompass land currently occupied by two
houses: one is vacant, according to the project’s letter of intent, and the other is owned by an investor. Sixteen of the apartments in total would be for people with developmental disabilities. Kimberly Russell, Home Leasing’s executive vice president, says that the apartments would be mixed income. The Community on East Main.

If you’ve ever been to a Rochester school board meeting when board members are talking about closing a school, you know how volatile those meetings can get. The fury and blame fly in every direction, especially at board members. Rarely, however, do parents or community leaders strongly object to a proposal to open a new school. But a recommendation to consider opening a military-style academy in the Rochester school district is an unusual exception, attracting strong supporters and vocal critics. Even if advocates find the funding to open an academy, there are numerous public concerns to address. The idea for a military academy stems from a wave of challenges facing the district. Many city schools struggle with low performance, many students are disengaged, attendance is still an issue, and a steady stream of parents is turning to charter and suburban schools. Parents will continue to leave the district if they aren’t given more choices, says school board president Van White. White is a proponent of a military-style high school to counter the exodus, and earlier this year assembled a committee to study the feasibility of opening one. The committee’s 86-page report shows significant support for the school, but critics question the report’s validity. The report, which includes input from parents, students, and community and business leaders, recommends a standalone school that would be affiliated with the US Army in conjunction with the national Defense Cadet Corps. The school would start with about 75 ninth graders and
eventually grow to about 450 students in grades 7-12. The school would accept both city and suburban students on a voluntary basis. And the committee insists that the academy would not be a feeder school for recruitment into military service. The school would emphasize a college prep-STEM curriculum, says Lt. Col. Ulises Miranda III, a co-chair of the committee and JROTC instructor.
Supporters of military schools often view
them as a viable option for students who are struggling academically and need an education environment with more structure and discipline. Focus and discipline are necessary skills for students who want to go to college or are considering a career in military service, they say. And there are indicators that show that students do better academically in military schools, supporters say. But critics view military schools with skepticism, if not disdain. They question why educators would introduce young and impressionable students to what they call a military recruitment tool. And they say that military schools are often touted as alternatives in low-income communities of color and not in affluent suburban districts. And they question why young people should be taught to yield to authority rather than question it. Doug Noble, a longtime anti-war activist, is opposed to opening a military school in the Rochester City School District. He cautions parents, students, and school board members against being swayed by military ideology and
Before I went into the program, I wasn't a leader” - DAV I AN WALT ERS
images of young people in “crisp uniforms.” He says that the report by White’s committee is based on general likability questions and opinion, and lacks evidence that the school would improve student outcomes. And he questions why the board would consider a military school when it has committed to improving school climate and shifting away from harsh disciplinary tactics. The report cites high graduation rates in Chicago’s military-style schools as evidence of their value. Most of those schools mirror the demographics of Rochester’s schools. And some reviews of the schools show that they have an average ACT score of about 20, which is around the national average. Based on Chicago Public Schools data, on average the schools’ cadets academically outperform their CPS counterparts, according to an article in Medill Reports, published in 2015 by Northwestern University’s School of Journalism. But much has been written about JROTC programs and military schools that is controversial. In a paper published in Academia. edu, “Making Soldiers in the Public Schools: an Analysis of the ARMY JROTC Curriculum,”
author Catherine Lutz says that proponents tend to portray JROTC as a cure-all for everything “from the children who come to school with guns to the fatherless child’s need for a paternal figure.” And during a 2007 PBS NewsHour debate about Chicago’s military academies, guest Pauline Lipman, a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago, raised a public policy question. “Why are they good schools for lowincome African-American and Latino students and not good schools for affluent white kids?” she said. A similar concern was raised by Cynthia Elliott, vice president of the Rochester school board, at a recent meeting with some of the military school committee members. Concerned about the possibility of funneling black students into the military, Elliott said, “I do know historically for African Americans it was one of the only career opportunities that was available at one time. They fight for freedom for everybody else, but when they came back to their own country, they were not free to have the various jobs and housing and everything else.” Elliott has also voiced strong resistance to the idea that students of color who misbehave need to be “fixed” through one method or another. Committee member Lt. Col. Andrae Evans said at the meeting that he understands Elliott’s concerns. Discipline is not about punishment, he said, but about developing character traits that are known to lead to success. And with respect to the Civil Rights movement, he said that depriving students of knowledge that will help them succeed in life would deny them the opportunities that have come from the movement’s struggles. The committee members pointed out that the number of Rochester city school students who participate in the JROTC and then go on to join the military is low. And many RCSD students who do try to enlist are rejected because they don’t meet academic standards, they said. Some parents and students who have personal experience with the JROTC and military schools have spoken passionately to board members about them, often crediting the schools with helping their children when all else failed. At the same board meeting, one father nearly wept while reading from his son’s letter which said that he regained his footing in life after being in a more structured educational environment. Davian Walters, 18, and Shamard Houser, 15, are participants in the local JROTC program and support the idea of a militarystyle school in the Rochester school district. “Before I went into the program, I wasn’t a leader,” Walters says. “I was more timid. I believe this has truly molded me into a better person.” “I saw doors begin to open up for me,” Houser says. The military-school plan needs the full school board’s approval to move ahead and funding must be found.

Rochester and New York are riding the buzz of a booming beer industry BEER | BY JEREMY MOULE
The smell of wet cereal and yeast is in the air at Rohrbach’s Railroad Street brewery. It’s 9 a.m. on a Thursday and the staff is well into the first of two daily brewing shifts. Workers run hoses between the brewing and fermenting tanks, while Jim McDermott, Rohrbach’s director of brewing, tests samples at a workbench that looks part chemistry lab, part kitchen. Rohrbach bills itself as Rochester’s first craft brewery, and in its 25 years in business, it has grown from a small operation in the German House to two brewing sites, one on Railroad Street and one on Buffalo Road in Ogden. Combined, the operations will produce about 10,000 barrels of beer this year. The Rochester region — New York as a whole, really — is experiencing a beer boom, to the point that it sometimes seems as if a new local brewery opens every month. The latest: Three Heads Brewing will throw a three-day shindig starting June 16 to celebrate the opening of its long-awaited brewery and tasting room on Atlantic Avenue, roughly a mile from the Rohrbach beer hall. The opening coincides with the tail end of Rochester Real Beer Week; Rohrbach and Three Heads will release a collaborative brew at the event. “As long as people are making good products and stuff, I’m optimistic not only about the industry as a whole, but where Rohrbach’s fits in or where these new companies fit in,” says Rohrbach founder and owner John Urlaub. “I think it’s all been good.” Monroe County has more than 15 licensed breweries, according to the State Liquor Authority. Statewide, 240 breweries are up and running, with another 40 in the works, says Paul Leone, executive director of the New York State Brewers Association; compare that to 2012 when there were 95 breweries in New York State. The 240 breweries generate $4 billion of economic activity in the state, Leone says. “Before Prohibition, there were 350 breweries in the state of New York, and the population was only five million,” Leone says. “We have a population of 20 million now and we have 240 breweries, so there’s room, as long as the quality stays high.” 8 CITY
JUNE 8-14, 2016
The breweries, from craft giants such as Saranac and Brooklyn down to small operations such as Roc Brewing, produced about one-million barrels of craft beer over the past year. New York is now a top five beer-producing state behind California, Colorado, Pennsylvania, and Oregon. But those one-million barrels don’t include the state’s large, mass-market breweries such as Genesee — though it includes some of its smaller craft lines — and the Anheuser-Busch plant outside of Syracuse. Between them, they add millions of barrels to New York’s brewing totals (neither discloses actual production figures).
New York’s beer boom has to do with market trends and the preferences of millennial and Gen-X drinkers; they want to know where their beer comes from, and they prize local brews. The Brewers
Association, which is a craft beer industry group, says that overall beer sales by volume declined by 0.2 percent in 2015, but craft increased by 12.8 percent and now holds 12.2 percent of the market. The Legislature and governor made important changes to state laws in 2012 which allowed breweries to sell beer by the glass in their tasting rooms. Before that, brewers could only offer samples and sell products to customers to take home, which is what Rohrbach did when it opened its brewery next to the Public Market. Now it has a full-blown beer hall where customers can have pints and a bite to eat. The changes in state laws opened up a new business model for New York breweries, which provides higher margins on breweries’ products, says Leone, of the State Brewers Association.

Swiftwater Brewing Company, which opened in January 2015, sells most of its beer through its restaurant and tasting room on Mt. Hope Avenue in the South Wedge, says co-owner and co-brewer Andy Cook. This approach was always a key part of the brewery’s model, and the tasting room is its biggest revenue stream, Cook says.
And Genny’s parent company, North American Brewing, is investing $39 million to modernize the plant’s brewing systems. The brewery’s current system brews in 1,000 barrel batches; it’s meant to produce large amounts of a few recipes. But since Genny now wants to produce a greater variety of products in varying batches, the brewing staff needs flexibility. That ability is vital to grow Genny’s craft lines as well as its contract brewing business. The new system is based on 500-barrel batches, which means it can easily produce smaller runs of a new brew while still cranking out the classic Genny styles.
Two countervailing forces shape
the business of New York beer: massive brewery consolidation and the growth of hyper-independent brewers who want to make interesting beers. Sometimes, those trends overlap: Anheuser-Busch InBev, which bought Goose Island, a craft operation still held in high regard by many beer drinkers, is currently in talks to consolidate with another beer behemoth, SAB Miller. If the deal goes through, the world’s largest brewer will combine with the world’s second-largest brewer. Craft beer’s definition has gotten a little fuzzy because of those dynamics. And several breweries, including the Genesee Brewery on St. Paul, now produce mass-market beers and craft lines. The Genny brewery is New York State’s oldest, and one of the oldest continuously operating breweries in the country. It still cranks out its iconic brews: Genesee Beer, Genesee Light, Genesee Cream Ale, and the seasonal Genesee Bock, in huge quantities. It also runs its Dundee craft line, which started in 1994 with J.W. Dundee’s Honey Brown Lager, and has a big contract brewing business; company reps won’t disclose their clients. But Genny is acting more and more like a craft brewer these days. The shift started with the 2012 opening of the Genesee Brew House and its pilot brewery, where brewmaster Dean Jones developed a growing list of highly acclaimed brews. Some of the beers have been scaled up and produced in small runs at the main brewery, including a limited-release salted caramel chocolate porter produced in partnership with Hedonist Artisan Chocolates; a Scotch ale that’s now a mainstay; and a wellreceived North German-style pilsner.
The Rochester region’s beer industry is more aptly viewed as a brewing community. And the Genesee folks don’t want to wall themselves off in their cream-colored brick complex. They want to work with small brewers across the area to help boost the quality of everyone’s products, including their own, they say. And quality is not the same as preference, though brewers and beer drinkers sometimes equate the two. There’s a difference between drinking an IPA and not liking it, and drinking an IPA and tasting some out-of-place buttery flavors, which mean that the beer didn’t ferment properly.
“I think with the addition of the Brew House, it’s allowed people to go ‘Holy cow!’ and think of Genesee in a different light.” Brewmaster Dean Jones
“It’s kind of like the latest iPhone in brewing,” Jones says. “It opens up a lot of processes we can do that we can’t do now.” The system will also use less water, fewer raw materials, and less energy. That means the upgrades will lessen the brewery’s environmental footprint and provide better margins on Genny’s products and the contract brewed products, says Mary Beth Popp, North American Brewing’s director of corporate relations. So why does a mass-production brewery, which at one time was neck-and-
neck with Budweiser in terms of beer output, care about craft? Prestige plays a role; brewers take a lot of pride in what they make and often jump at the opportunity to show consumers what their breweries are capable of. That’s what Genesee’s craft Pilot Batch series is all about. “The first beer I ever drank in my life was a Genny Cream Ale,” Jones says. “That’s what I grew up with and it was awesome. I think with the addition of the Brew House, it’s allowed people to go ‘Holy cow!’ and think of Genesee in a different light.”
Genesee has valuable brewing and quality control experience to share, and staff members have opened Genesee’s doors to the region’s smaller brewers. They run monthly taste panels where local brewers can learn how to identify off flavors in their products as well as what those notes mean. The brewers can also bring their products to Genesee’s quality lab, where techs will analyze qualities such as color and the bitterness unit level (generally a measure of a beer’s hop character). And it’s all free of charge. Jones has also helped some of the new breweries install or locate equipment. But he occasionally asks for favors, too, like when he recently called on other brewers to help him get his hands on a certain kind of hop. “At the end of the day, yes, we’re competitors, but we really want to help everyone,” says Joe Bustos, Genesee’s senior manager of corporate quality assurance. But there’s something else in it for Genny that will benefit other brewers, too. Ultimately, the company sees Rochester as a beer
destination. If everyone in town produces highquality beer, people will come to the city or region to tour the breweries, not unlike what happens in Portland, Oregon, or Asheville, North Carolina. This approach worked well for Finger Lakes wine. As more small wineries with top-notch vintages came on the scene, more people started making trips to tour the region; the scenery helped. Local brewers say that they want to replicate that success. “Typically, when people make beer trips, they don’t go to go to one brewery, they go to multiple breweries,” Popp says. “The attraction is really to have multiple quality breweries in close proximity to one another. Swiftwater Brewing Company is about
1.5 miles south of the Genny brewery, just across the road from the Genesee Riverway Trail. The brewery and tasting room grew out of co-owner Cook’s home brewing. He was convinced to pursue the establishment after he saw Tap and Mallet’s success and the growing popularity of online beer groups. Swiftwater brews playful beers — one current offering blends kiwi and hard cider with the brew — many with a strong Belgian influence. In its first year, Swiftwater produced 500 barrels of beer. continues on page 10

CHEERS! Cook’s idea was to build a neighborhoodfocused brewery; he talks about a “third place,” which is a public spot outside of home or work where people gather. Swiftwater’s growth will stay close to that vision, he says. “We’re not planning on being the next regional brewer,” Cook says. “We’re really planning on making what we are now as awesome and big as we can in the space that we have right now.” Swiftwater is one of six farm breweries in Monroe County, according to Liquor Authority data. The others are Lost Borough on Atlantic Avenue in the city, Knucklehead Craft Brewing in Webster, Fairport Brewing
wanted to pursue a brewery. But the economy was in the dumps, so they hired CB Craft Brewers to produce their recipes. Now, however, Nothnagle, Dale, and Dirrigl are about to open their own brewery, and they’re excited about the opportunities. Higher volume is one benefit: Three Heads brewed about 3,400 barrels in 2015, and the company expects to double that figure in its first full year at the brewery. It also expects to employ approximately 15 people. Three Heads is known for its IPA’s, a style that the founders enjoy, but it also makes seasonal stouts, porters, wheat beers, and brown ales. And the men will now be able to make lagers, which they did only occasionally at CB’s, since the style has to sit in a fermenting tank longer than others.
“I think having good, local craft beer is a vital part of the economy.” Dan Nothnagle, Three Heads Brewing Company, RG Brewery in Sweden, and Griffs Brewery in Parma. The farm breweries play an interesting role in New York’s beer economy. The farm brewery license is a little cheaper, and it allows the breweries to sell other New York-made wines and spirits. In return, their beers must be made with a certain percentage of New York State ingredients: the current requirement is 20 percent, but it goes up to 60 percent in 2019 and then 90 percent in 2024. The idea is to provide farmers with new marketable crops, namely hops and barley. And those products are valuable commodities: farmers in Oregon grew eight-million pounds of hops in 2014, with a value of $35.7 million. New York has nine malt houses and a growing number of hop farms. State growers have produced high-quality hops for a long time, says Rohrbach’s Urlaub. But the hops often weren’t in a dried, shelf-stable form, so they had to be used immediately. That’s changed, and Rohrbach now buys as much local material as it can for its seven-barrel brewery at its Buffalo Road restaurant. Cook grew up on his family’s farm and his father grows the barley used in Swiftwater’s beer. The family sells the barley to Pioneer Malting on Paul Road in Chili, which processes the grain for brewing and sells it back to Swiftwater. Three Heads Brewing’s origin story is
not too different from Swiftwater’s. Neighbors Dan Nothnagle, Geoff Dale, and Todd Dirrigl started getting together about 10 or 15 years ago to drink some of the beers that Nothnagle acquired as he traveled around the country. The men decided to learn how to make their own beer, and eventually decided they

“We’ve always wanted to build the brand and then build the brewery, so this is just a natural evolution of our path,” Nothnagle says. Each new brewery makes the market more crowded, Nothnagle says. And it’s up to the breweries to make sure that they’re making high-quality stuff beer that the public enjoys, since bad experiences with one brewery may reflect poorly on others, too, he says. But Rochester has a healthy market for craft beer, which is helped by its white-collar workforce, which is the prime demographic for the industry, Nothnagle says. To thrive, Three Heads and other local breweries need the support of Rochester’s beer drinkers. In return, the breweries want to provide something of value to the community. “I think having good, local craft beer is a vital part of the economy,” Nothnagle says. “What you’ve seen with the craft beer movement is a return to pre-Prohibition states where each community had several breweries where they could get good, fresh beer.”

Beyond the controversy The Market Grill at I-Square 400 BAKERS PARK, IRONDEQUOIT OPEN DAILY, 11 A.M. TO 10 P.M. 266-1111; I-SQUARE.US [ REVIEW ] BY CHRIS LINDSTROM
Whenever I-Square is mentioned at this point, most people can’t help but start to parse through the web of politics that has surrounded the Irondequoit development over the last 2 months. Local journalists, including those from City, have done a comprehensive job covering the controversy and resignations. Unlike those news stories, I’d rather talk about what owner Mike Nolan and his team are trying to focus on: the food. For those of you that haven’t made the trip out to I-Square yet, it is located across the street from the House of Guitars, just off of Titus Avenue in the heart of Irondequoit. The building features six different concepts — i-scream (ice cream), Hong Kong One (Americanized Chinese), The Market Grill, Pasta Cucina (fast casual pasta), Stir Coffee (second wave style coffee), and the Reserve
(a wine and beer bar) — focused around a food court with ample seating. My wife and I decided to focus our attention on The Market Grill and sampled from the other establishments to round out our visits. The fare at The Market Grill covers well-traveled ground with a selection of burgers, sandwiches, and a decent variety of complementary dishes. With the understanding that this is a concept intended to be family-friendly, I still found elements that kept me intrigued throughout. We first opted for the Bistro Burger ($12) which is topped with a fried egg, bacon, arugula, and a mustard spiked mayo. The patty was cooked appropriately to medium and had a modest crust, and I appreciated the texture and the smoke from the delightful bacon. This burger was above average, although I would have preferred the egg to still be runny. We also tried the Veggie Stack ($8.50), which could have benefitted from a bit more consistency in the cooking of the eggplant and Portobello mushroom. The flavor combinations were sound as basil pesto and provolone anchored the sandwich along
with red peppers and arugula to accent. But everything could have been amped up with a little more seasoning. A quick aside: The Market Grill deserves praise for using Martusciello’s hard rolls for many of its sandwiches, including the burgers. It is a hard roll in more than name; the roll has a solid crust that can stand up against powerful fillings. I am never sad to see them on a menu, and they made a noticeable difference here. It was most apparent on the breakfast sandwich with sausage ($7.50). Since the egg, sausage, and cheddar are all softer, the sturdiness of the roll helped bring the whole sandwich together. It’s easy to recommend this for any time of day. The Market Turkey ($9.50) is a good example of simple execution. Although not roasted in house, the turkey the business used had a fair bit of tooth to it, and the combination of creamy brie with the sweet, slightly spicy pepper jelly struck an interesting balance. Our Reuben ($10) was served on grilled rye and was a little typical, but it was accented nicely by a housemade sauerkraut. Since all the concepts at I-Square operate under the same roof, we were able to grab a
delectable IPA from The Reserve ($5 for a 16-ounce on draft) and an i-scream salted caramel milkshake ($5 for a portion that we could split) using Ithaca’s Purity ice cream. As we were on our way out, we couldn’t help but grab a couple kiddie size cups (one scoop for $2.50) to cap things off. The convenience factor of being able to pick and choose how to form your meal is a major appeal with this style of business. On our last visit, we grabbed our food and made our way to the upper level of the building to sit in the remainder of the day’s sun. I have to admit that it was the scandal that brought me to I-Square for the first time, but after having a satisfying meal and sitting on the rooftop to admire the sunset, the controversy was easy to forget.

Rochester guitarist Jon Greeno has assembled an allstar cast for this gentle foray into peace and reflection on his new CD, “Catharsis.” Greeno lays back to let the collective star power shine before picking up the brush to paint wide swatches of tonally astute guitar. Greeno’s dexterity is slick and smooth. Just dig the opening passage to “Skippin’,” which starts pretty before the whole rest of the band kicks in in unison. Greeno exhibits nimble speed, amazing grace, and some slicker, more sinister tones that bop and spar harmoniously. This saves Greeno and his band from being pigeonholed into the exclusivity of the smooth jazz idiom. Sure, it’s smooth as it maneuvers between assorted plateaus and changes, but there is a lot more going on in the confines of this platter — in fact, there aren’t really any confines to speak of. “Catharsis” offers way more in the way of variety of tone and mood and execution. Hell, it’s cathartic. Oh, and the cut “Goodbye to a Dream” may very well break your heart… it almost got mine. — BY FRANK DE BLASE
Kind of Kind “Droplets” Self-released kindofkind.bandcamp.com
What makes this three-piece indie outfit out of Rochester, and this record for that matter, so progressive is its hairpin stop and start dynamics. You can practically smell burning tires and brake pads. It’s as if the chord progression never repeats itself, and for Kind of Kind, this totally works. Just imagine the freedom this affords the band. The guitar is up front with a quasi-surf cleanliness to it that reminds me of 80’s pop darlings Spandeau Ballet, or a life-size music box. And with songs like “Obsessed,” the band sounds a lot like The Smiths. And like The Smiths, Kind of Kind manages to rock steady without horsing it into the boat. The melody meanders homeless, optimistic, and ultimately free to go wherever it damn well pleases. It’s a pretty groove throughout without pandering to the pop music junky in all of us.

As sort of a tip of the hat in the rearview mirror to The Band, The Mighty High and Dry pile on an extra helping of storied songs suitable for framing on its new CD, “The Next Waltz.” This is a true test of the time that goes into crafting a record. And with the release of this, it’s second record, the band is standing at a precipice as two of its members, lead guitarist Mike Frederick and drummer Chris Teal are making their exit, leaving frontman Alan Murphy and bassist Kyle Vock high and dry to recruit new members. (Okay, not actually high and dry, but it sounded cool … sue me.) Regardless of its revolving door in regards to lineup, Murphy is clearly the MHD visionary as he steers the boat from his helm at the keyboard or strapped to a guitar. And there appear to be two camps: those who like Murphy at the keys, and those who like the more rock feel he renders with the six-string. It’s often decided by the song’s conception or its instrumentation. “Some of it depends on if I wrote the song on guitar,” Murphy says. “I’ll still throw on some keyboard in the studio as an overdub.” And though the keys often carry the song, holding it aloft, Murphy is quick to point out that both albums — “The Next Waltz” and the band’s eponymous debut — were what he 14 CITY JUNE 8-14, 2016

considers guitar-heavy. Still, he says, it’s up to the songs. “Some of them could lend themselves either way,” he says. “If it’s a good song I should be able to play it on either instrument.” What sets the songs on album number one apart from “The Next Waltz” is the length of their gestation in Murphy’s head. Some of the first album was rattling around his head for two decades. “All the songs on the second album are fresh tunes,” he says. “On our first album, there were tunes that were 20 years old. These new songs here were written recently with The Mighty High and Dry in mind. Plus the band is becoming more of a songwriting collective. It’s what I’ve always wanted.” Producer Tony Gross at GFI studios was more hands-on with “The Next Waltz” as well than on the previous record. According to Murphy, Gross essentially joined the band. The album kicks off with “Eternity,” an epic, big sky vista with its guitar bang and twang before hitting on some 80’s janglepop with “Day and night.” By the time the havoc fades after the final cut, the band has ushered the listener through Bottle Rocketsstyle Southern fried rock ‘n’ roll; high and tight pieces reminiscent of Elvis Costello; and songs of epic virtue and want, like the beautiful “It’s All Right.” Once the new crew is on board, Murphy says, they’re going to hit the road. It’s the next waltz, after all. “I’m very excited about the future of the band,” Murphy says.

CLASSICAL | FINGER LAKES CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL
When it comes to musical mottos, you could do worse than “world-class music experienced upfront and casual.” That’s the philosophy of the Finger Lakes Chamber Music Festival, which starts its 2016 summer season this Saturday, June 11, at Hunt Country Vineyards in Branchport. (The FLCMF takes full advantage of the abundant wineries in the Finger Lakes region.) Starting the season is a favorite festival visitor, the Manhattan Chamber Orchestra Ensemble, and its artistic director, Richard Auldon Clark. The program is varied and summery, with a flute quartet by Mozart, Beethoven’s “Eyeglass” duo for viola and cello, “Bacchianas Brasilieras No. 6” for flute and bassoon by Villa-Lobos, and the charming serenade for string trio by Ernst von Dohnanyi. There is also a serenade for flute, viola, and bassoon by Clark, who is a prolific composer. The first concert of the Finger Lakes Chamber Music Festival will take place Saturday, June 11, at Hunt Country Vineyards, 4021 Italy Hill Road, Branchport. 7:30 p.m. $25; free for students. 315-536-0383; fingerlakes-music.org. — BY DAVID RAYMOND ourcoffeeconnection.org. 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Free.

GARAGE POP | PWR BTTM
PWR BTTM is having a bit of a moment right now. Liv Bruce and Ben Hopkins formed the band at Bard College back in 2013 as a three-piece, and gathered a devoted collegiate following for its glittered-out stage attire and freewheeling, ecstatic live shows. Since then, the high-flying garage-pop trio has become a duo, refining its high-flying sound with road-tested precision and grace. The album “Ugly Cherries” swells and screams with the glorious momentum of the band’s live sets, offering a uniquely exuberant brand of power chord laden pop that feels like the best old Sleater-Kinney records shot through with Nick Cave wit.

Lively ending Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra WITH OLGA KERN REVIEWED THURSDAY, JUNE 2 RPO.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY DAVID RAYMOND
Ward Stare gives a great bacchanalia. A few weeks ago, Stare led a downright cheeky RPO performance of Saint-Saëns’ Bacchanale from “Samson et Dalila,” and for his first-season finale as RPO music director he began and ended the program with two more sumptuous French celebrations of bad behavior. Albert Roussel’s “Bacchus and Ariadne” is a not-so-familiar example; Maurice Ravel’s “Daphnis and Chloe” is perhaps the betterknown. Ravel’s revels are the rowdier and more sensual, but Roussel’s are not far behind. In fact, the two works are quite similar in construction (even their climactic “big tunes” are somewhat similar). This made them excellent bookends for a program that also included Rachmaninoff’s “Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini,” with pianist Olga Kern, and Borodin’s “Polovtsian Dances” from “Prince Igor.” (The Rochester Oratorio Society joined in on the Borodin and Ravel.) This was an enticing program, but experiencing it could have been like eating four big slices of chocolate cake in a row. It was certainly a sweet evening, but thanks to Stare’s lively tempos and sense of pace, and some outstanding orchestral playing, it turned out to be a nourishing meal, catered by the finest patisserie. Roussel (1869-1937) is one of those caviar-to-the-general composers whom a select few love, and whom nobody else has 16 CITY JUNE 8-14, 2016

Art Exhibits ever heard of. Too bad, as he is truly a French master; his ballet “Bacchus and Ariadne” is a masterpiece. The RPO was apparently playing this 85-year-old score for the first time, and played it wonderfully well under Stare. Roussel’s orchestration varies from diaphanous to commandingly brassy; one moment it is as luscious as Ravel or Debussy, the next moment Roussel is pounding out Stravinskyan rhythms and indulging in deliciously acrid harmonies. “Bacchus and Ariadne” is a treasure trove of brief but telling solos for violin, viola, trumpet, and all the principal woodwinds. Roussel offers many arresting harmonic details and turns of phrase for players and the conductor to tease out, and Stare and the RPO dug into everything the piece offers. If you’re a person of a certain age, you probably know Borodin’s tuneful “Polovtsian Dances” as a source of music for the tuneful 1950’s Broadway show “Kismet” (for which, I discovered, Borodin won a Tony Award 75 years after he died). Long before Broadway, it was a lively ballet scene (with chorus) in Borodin’s opera “Prince Igor,” and was considered the last word in colorful musical barbarism, at least until “The Rite of Spring” came along. It’s still tuneful and colorful, though, and the kind of piece Ward Stare leads with great panache, having fun with the music and indulging in podium choreography without camping it up too much. This was a delightful performance from the orchestra, but not so delightful from the Rochester Oratorio Society, which was handicapped by some noticeably harsh sopranos and reedy tenors, a surprisingly thin-bodied sound, and a poor choral blend (amplification only made things worse). The
chorus and orchestra were noticeably out-ofsync at the end of the piece. The ROS did somewhat better in the wordless “ahs” of Ravel’s “Daphnis and Chloe,” though amplification gave the combined choral-orchestral sound an opaque quality. (To be fair, this is difficult to balance effectively, especially with such a large chorus; the suite is usually just played as an orchestral piece). The orchestra itself sounded splendid. The languorous beginning featured wonderfully precise and detailed playing from flutes and clarinets; Pierre Boulez himself couldn’t have achieved more clarity in the opening bars. The woodwind playing was distinguished throughout, especially Rebecca Gilbert’s rendering of the famous flute solo that leads into the finale. Stare drove the closing measures a bit too much for my taste, but this was after all a bacchanalian frenzy, and definitely exciting stuff. Rachmaninoff’s highly caloric yet also highly disciplined “Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini” turned out to be a perfect concerto to complement all this lusciousness. And Olga Kern was a near-ideal soloist for it. Her delicate frame is deceptive; she is a powerhouse virtuoso and this ingenious, diabolically difficult piece offered no problems for her. In fact, she was able to take some of the faster variations at such a clip that they were difficult to follow. Kern was in command of the piece’s quick changes of mood, but she relaxed most satisfyingly for Rachmaninoff’s famous 18th variation, turning it into a beautiful cameo with plenty of rubato and detail. She also gave a pretty stunning reading of Prokofiev’s Fourth Etude as an encore.

ART | KEITH HARING: “APOCALYPSE”
Keith Haring’s “Apocalypse” portfolio gives visual representation to a time when HIV/AIDS did, in fact, look something like an usher to the end of mankind. An activist through his art, Haring teamed up with writer William S. Burroughs in 1988 to create drawings and poetry as a vision of the HIV virus as the harbinger of the end of the world. Haring began his art career in the subways of New York City and was catapulted into fame following a few high-profile commissions. With a style that intermingled high- and low-brow art, Haring used his social regard to raise awareness around AIDS, apartheid and the crack cocaine epidemic. Haring began the “Apocalypse” project shortly after being diagnosed with AIDS himself and paired each image with Burrough’s stream-of-consciousness poetry. Haring died two years later at the age of 31. Keith Haring: “Apocalypse” is in the Lockhart Gallery at Memorial Art Gallery (500 University Avenue), Friday, June 10, through August 28, during normal museum hours. MAG’s hours of operation are Wednesday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.; and first Fridays until 9 p.m. Tickets are $14 general admission, $10 for seniors, $5 for college students with an ID and children 6-18, and free for children under five. — BY MARY WALRATH

The first time I spied one of Shane Durgee’s paintings was during a punk show at the old Smugtown Mushrooms location near the Public Market. Pushing a narrow path between rooms, drink it hand, I looked up at the wall to see an oddly familiar element from my childhood: embedded in a riot of swirling colors and shifting suggestions of landscape and sky was the unmistakable, sleepy-lidded eyeball of Sesame Street’s Snuffleupagus. I’ve been fond of Durgee’s work ever since. His solo show at Nu Movement, “Fog of Memory,” features a survey of his work from the last several years. Durgee uses his curiosity about individual or group identity, and the particular elements or influences that stay with us from an early age. The staring globe of that puppet’s eye can be found in just about every one of his paintings. As a child, he felt unnerved by the eye, and would dream of wandering from room to room in a house, unable to lose its lash-curtained gaze. As an adult, he likens this subconscious ever-presence to the everencroaching surveillance of our lives. Other recurring elements in his work include luscious, flowing hair — a remnant of both reading and drawing comic books, as well as a fascination with androgynous rock stars like David Lee Roth — and twisting marks that resemble characters from an unreal alphabet. Like the rest of the dreamy pictures’ elements, the squiggles seem to have a sort of life. They blend into the unresolved memoryscapes, but still make their presence known as a subject. Durgee explains that these letterlike forms are also an attempt to put a pin in squirrelly memory. “I think I had an imported toy robot from Sears with kanji on the box,” he says. His cousin, whose mother is Japanese,
had explained that it was Japanese writing. “Until they informed me of that fact, I had seen it as part of the packaging artwork. So I make marks that evoke that sense of mystery and fantasy that the kanji represented before I knew what those marks were.” These disparate memories collectively inform one of Durgee’s consistent themes, which is the mystery of identity — how we construct our own, and how we are perceived by others. “Take the Long Way Home” is part of Shane Durgee’s solo show, “Fog of For example, in Memory,” on view at Nu Movement through July 1.

THEATER | “SEPARATE IS NEVER EQUAL”
Seven years before the pivotal Brown v. Board of Education case in 1954, Mexican-American students challenged discriminatory laws in the schools of California and won. A children’s book by Duncan Tonatiuh, “Separate is Never Equal: Sylvia Mendez and Her Family’s Fight for Desegregation,” tells about that fight for Mexican-Americans to attend a “whites only” school and the impact it had for Latinos across the nation. Locals Don Bartalo and Annette Ramos have adapted this book into the play “Separate is Never Equal,” which will appear at MuCCC this weekend. Sylvia Mendez, who received a Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2011, will attend the production on Friday, June 10. “Separate is Never Equal,” produced by the Rochester Latino Theater Company and BART Productions, will be performed Friday, June 10, through Sunday, June 12, at MuCCC, 142 Atlantic Avenue. 7:30 p.m. on Friday; 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Saturday; and 2 p.m. on Sunday.

What we do for love “The Lobster”

“Maggie’s Plan” (R), DIRECTED BY REBECCA MILLER OPENS FRIDAY [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
It’s common to hear complaints about the lack of originality at the movies these days, and when you’re staring up at a marquee filled with sequels and reboots, it’s hard to argue to the contrary. But that originality hasn’t gone away entirely; you just have to know where to look. Case in point: the drolly surreal “The Lobster,” the first English

Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz in “The Lobster.” PHOTO COURTESY A24
language feature from Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos (the Oscar-nominated “Dogtooth”). Set in a quasi-dystopian world in which single people are allotted 45 days to find a mate or face being surgically transformed into an animal (they have the option to choose which animal, so it’s not all bad news), Lanthimos’ film manages to glean some universal truths from an outlandish premise. “The Lobster” follows a poor schlub named David (Colin Farrell with his good looks hidden beneath a slight paunch and the world’s saddest moustache), whose wife recently left him for another man. As the film begins, David has been sent to a countryside hotel meant to help singles find their lifelong mate. Upon arrival, he’s given an orientation by the hotel manager (a delightful Olivia Colman) and allowed to select his choice of animal. David settles on a lobster, and his reasoning has a certain logic: they’re blue-blooded, like aristocrats, can live for 100 years, and remain fertile their entire lives. Residents of the hotel also have the ability to extend their stay by hunting down Loners — rebels who’ve bucked the system and taken up residence in the woods — and shooting them with tranquilizers. The reigning champion of this game is the “Heartless Woman” (the unnerving Angeliki Papoulia), whom David unwisely chooses to pursue. The reasons that prompt the pairings we witness are often inscrutable. One couple decides that they’re a match because they both get frequent nosebleeds; another because they each have pleas-
ant singing voices. It’s a sort of twisted, funhouse reflection of the arbitrary reasons we use to justify why the person we’ve fallen for is the right one. Eventually David ends up fleeing the resort, opting to take his chances in the woods, though he quickly learns the Loners have strict rule sets of their own, and relationships of any kind are forbidden. In fact, their ruthless leader (Léa Seydoux) might be even worse than anything David faced back at the hotel. Despite it all, he finds himself drawn to a Short Sighted Woman (Rachel Weisz). There’s some resonant ideas being explored here, from the binary mindset people tend to adopt when trying to find a match, to the lengths we’ll go to in order to ensure we don’t end up alone (though the movie seems to argue that those dead-set on remaining single can be just as reckless), and the dangers that result from trying to force a connection where there truly isn’t one. Throughout, Lanthimos cultivates a feeling of unease, tossing in shocking acts of violence when we least expect it. In a world so single-mindedly obsessed with love, we see little outright joy of any sort, but there’s a deadpan humor that keeps things from turning too bleak. There’s a few bumps along the way as the film transitions from biting satire to become something oddly touching, but beneath its hardened, cynical exoskeleton, there’s a gooey, romantic heart. The world of academia is given a light
skewering in the charming “Maggie’s Plan,” a screwball-ish romantic comedy from writer-

director Rebecca Miller (daughter of playwright Arthur Miller). Revolving around a love triangle between self-involved, intellectual Brooklynites, the film calls to mind the works of Woody Allen and Noah Baumbach. Maggie (Greta Gerwig) wants to be a mother. Tired of waiting around for things to happen on their own, she opts for insemination, choosing Guy (Travis Fimmel) — an artisanal small-batch pickle magnate — as a donor. Naturally, the second she goes through with her plan, she ends up falling for John (Ethan Hawke), “one of the bad boys of ficto-critical anthropology.” John also happens to be married to the imposingly brilliant Georgette (Julianne Moore, sporting a thick Danish accent). Offering notes on John’s perpetually unfinished novel, Maggie grows smitten, and the feeling is more than mutual. The story jumps ahead three years to find the couple now married with a young daughter. Their love has dimmed over the interceding years, and Maggie’s starting to wonder if there might not be a way to return John to where she found him, no harm done. An appealing mix of sweet and sour, “Maggie’s Plan” gets better as it goes on after Miller has finished with the heavy lifting of introducing these characters — including Maggie’s best friends, played by the always welcome Bill Hader and Maya Rudolph — and their world. Once they start bouncing off one another, we’re reminded that as booksmart as some may be, we’re all a bit stupid in the ways of love.

Mid-Century in Maplewood 283 Maplewood Avenue Rochesterâ€™s Maplewood neighborhood has a rich history. In the late 19th century, the neighborhood featured grandiose estates occupied by wealthy business owners and officers from Eastman Kodak. Residents enjoyed the steamboat excursions provided by the Glen House, the spa and resort on Lorimor Hill, and the Maple Grove and Seneca Park West designed by master landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted. At the start of the 20th century, many of the estate plots were repurposed to accommodate gorgeous middle class homes. By the 1930s, Maplewood served as a thriving residential community. The history of the Maplewood neighborhood affords the area a variety of house styles, from Queen Anne to Colonial Revival, set among urban landscapes and the Lower Falls of the Genesee. Built in 1964, 283 Maplewood Avenue is a unique mid-century, contemporary ranch located minutes from Maplewood Rose Gardens, Seneca Park Zoo, and Ontario Beach Park. The house is located on a quiet, dead end street just opposite the Genesee Riverway Trail. The exterior of the house features a large, inviting front balcony, a carport, and a two-tiered deck. The interior of the house features many of the principles of mid-century contemporary design. The living room and dining room have a fairly open floor plan with the exception of the gas fireplace, which offers a wall of privacy without cordoning off the main living
spaces. The post and beam architectural design in the living room and dining room is in beautiful condition and reflects the 1960s groundbreaking look. The adjoining kitchen has a large island, which creates a valuable work space or breakfast bar. The cabinets, located along one wall, are made of a retro knotty pine. Open shelving on another wall might be used to display attractive dishware. The kitchen also features newer appliances and two entrance ways. The home has three, small, efficient bedrooms, one full-bath, two half-baths, and a finished walkout basement. To keep with the simplicity of mid-century design, the new owner might consider removing the carpet and window treatments that are in nearly all of the rooms. Mid-century designers often valued the quality of light in the home and 283 Maplewood Avenue provides many opportunities to connect the inside with the outside. 283 Maplewood Avenue is listed at $119,900 and proves a valuable opportunity for someone interested in a mid-century, contemporary ranch. The home is 1,525 square feet. Contact Nothnagle Realtor Sam Morreale at 585-451-0140 for a tour. by Michelle Parnett-Dwyer Michelle is Director of Foundation and Corporate Relations at The Strong and is an admirer of historic Rochester homes.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD
By 2009, when Zimbabwe’s central bank gave up on controlling inflation, its largest currency was the 100 trilliondollar bill — barely enough for bus fare in Harare and not even worth the paper needed to print it. However, that 100 trillion-dollar note (that’s “1” plus 14 zeros) has turned out to be a great investment for several astute traders in London and New Zealand, who bought thousands of them at pennies on the trillion and now report brisk sales to collectors on eBay at US$30 to $40 a note — a six-year return on investment, according to a May report in London’s The Guardian, of nearly 1,500 percent.
Can’t Possibly Be True
— Long-divorced Henry Peisch, 56, has seven children, but only one is still living with his ex-wife (who had originally been awarded $581 monthly support for all seven). (Three children are now independent, and three others successfully petitioned courts to live with Henry.) The resultant hardship (the $581 remains in effect) caused Henry to ask the Bergen County, New Jersey, Family Court several times for a “hardship” hearing, which the court denied (thus even defying the New Jersey Supreme Court). On April 8, Family Court judge Gary Wilcox, noting Peisch’s appearance on a related matter, spontaneously “granted” him his “ability to pay” hearing (with thus no opportunity for witnesses or evidence-gathering) — and summarily jailed him for missing some $581 payments (because, the judge concluded, he did not “believe” Peisch’s hardship claims).
— Magician and professional gambler Brian Zembic, 55, finally consulted surgeons recently about removing his historic C-cup breast implants, which he bore on a $100,000 bet in 1996 (with a rider of $10,000 annually for retaining them). (He also won a companion game of backgammon to determine who would pay for the original surgery.) He told news sources in May that he had intended to have them removed early on, but that they had “grown on” him and become “a normal part of my life.”
Government In Action
U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona, in a May publication deriding the value of certain federally funded research, highlighted several recent National Institutes of Health and National Science Foundation projects, such as the $13 million for exploring musical preferences of monkeys and chimpanzees; the $1.1 million judging whether cheerleaders are more attractive seen as a squad than individually; the $390,000 to determine how many shakes a wet dog needs to feel dry; and the $5 million to learn whether drunk birds slur when they sing. (Also strangely included was the actually valuable study by Michael Smith of Cornell University ranking where on the human body a bee sting was most painful. He found, from personal testing, that “on the penis” was only the third worst — research that brought Smith a prestigious Ig Nobel prize last year.)
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 27 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your experimental nature will lead to interesting encounters with individuals who have something to offer. Curiosity will help move a relationship forward, but it won’t necessarily keep it together. Slow down, enjoy the moment and see where it ends up. Live, learn and know when it’s time to move on. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Past partners can come back into your life and cause turmoil. Protect your heart and focus on someone more reliable. Sharing interests and values will make the difference between a short and a long-term relationship. Don’t settle for anything less
than what you deserve. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Someone offering a false vision of what he or she has to offer will take advantage of your carefree nature. Don’t fall for someone proclaiming to be everything your heart desires. Look deeper, and you will find that what you see and what you get aren’t one in the same. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Share your plans, and discuss how you feel about life, love and happiness. The conversations you have with someone you are attracted to will help you decide if this person is worth the effort. Don’t fall for someone who is still connected to someone else.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your charm and entertaining way of projecting a life full of fun and adventure will attract plenty of suitors. Make sure you don’t exaggerate, or the person you fall for will feel shortchanged. Offer a clear view of what you have to offer and what you expect in return. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’ll be captured by someone who is flippant, fun-loving and fickle. If you want to go down that route, protect your reputation by not doing so with someone you work with. Don’t mix business with pleasure, or you will end up in a predicament that is difficult to resolve.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You are ready to settle down, and the partners you attract will want the same. Don’t rush; savor the moment. Make each personal change count as you build long-lasting memories that stand the test of time. Travel, romance and learning more about each other is favored. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your relationship standard will not be the same as most people you meet. Question if the partner vying for your attention is mesmerized by your uniqueness or is just as unusual as you. Don’t settle for anyone who is likely to fall short of your expectations. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec.
21): It will be difficult to tell who is being honest with you and who is pretending to be the person you want to be with. Present your plans in detail. Love is in the stars, but if you make a poor choice, it can turn into a costly venture. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Say what’s on your mind, and share your dreams for the future. A commitment can be made, and plans that will lead to a stable and lasting environment look promising. Discuss lifestyle and domestic desires, including children, in-laws and family preferences. The family that plays together, stays together.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): When it comes to love, marriage and starting a family, you are ready and willing to take a leap of faith. Make plans based on both you and your partner’s long-term needs, and you will discover a way to make it happen. A change in status will stabilize your life. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Looking through rose-colored glasses when it comes to love will lead to problems. You have to get past the fascination and physical chemistry in order to detect how equal a partnership you actually have. Eventually, resentment will set in if one of you is doing more than the other.
