WWII vet: Only Clinton can lead military
Ever since the end of World War II, I have voted for a presidential candidate. The most important function of the presidency is becoming commander in chief of the military. The president has many other responsibilities, but this one deals with our young men’s and women’s lives in the context of the decisions the president makes regarding wars. Until this coming election, I always have been pretty confident that whoever was president would work out O.K. as commander in chief. Some were better than others. Truman was very good, as was Eisenhower. I thought Kennedy probably had the greatest challenge with the Cuban missile crisis. I believe each and every one of the presidents since 1948 had the knowledge and ability to look at the global conflicts that the United States has been involved in and to assess that using atomic weapons was not an option. Some of them strongly considered it, but in the end, rejected it. I am trying to be nonjudgmental as to a political party affiliation and look only at the makeup and character of the individuals. Of the two candidates who we are considering this election, I find only Hillary Clinton acceptable as commander in chief. Mr. Trump just does not make the grade; never have I disliked and feared someone this much. Of all my objections, the most significant is the climate of hate he has fostered. 2 CITY
Mary Anna Towler’s column (Urban Journal, August 24)
chastises “Mitch” for writing that downtown Rochester is not safe. She contends that it is a myth and that myth is now the general public perception. Like Mitch, she offers no facts or data to support her contention that downtown is indeed safe. Like Mitch, she offers only her opinion. So shame on Mitch for not supporting his position with hard data, and double-shame on Towler for publicly taking Mitch to task but offering no data to support her position. Seems like we should take her word and dismiss Match’s position out of hand. A little arrogant, I would say. I suggest that Mitch and Towler both provide hard evidence of their positions. And an apology from Towler to Mitch and her readers also seems to be in order. TOM KACKMEISTER
Keep open space at Midtown
I support the downtown commons proposal, Visionary Square, from Ken Sato, Ben Woelk, and others: thisisnotapark.com I’d like to point out that, while there are a few older parks downtown, most suffer from Rochester’s past infatuation with brutalism. They feature lots of concrete and not so much greenspace that really attracts people. Genesee Crossroads is a good example; it’s usually deserted because it’s not such a pleasant place to be. Pressuring large companies with suburban worldviews to move downtown isn’t going to save Rochester. They don’t like it here; that’s why they left. If they move back downtown, they will likely bring their suburban ideas and paranoia with them, which will be no gift to downtown. People come downtown when they find enjoyable spaces filled with other people. That means public
SEPTEMBER 7-13, 2016
greenspace. The fact is we already have Frontier, ESL, the former B&L, Excellus, and more, all within a few blocks of Midtown. That area is as dead as Main Street. Those buildings are silos, with no cafes, shops, or other amenities that attract people and are deserted as soon as their workers can escape. Save Parcel 5 at Midtown as a true public space to spur growth downtown. If people want to be there, the area will thrive. That’s the challenge. Other development will follow. GARY BOGUE
Barnhart responds to CITY’s Assembly endorsement
CITY Newspaper has endorsed my opponent in a piece that strongly suggests the outcome was predetermined (News, August 31). It’s regrettable that CITY has not done a single story objectively covering this race. Instead, readers will only see an endorsement article. The article quotes an ardent supporter of Harry Bronson. No one supporting me was quoted, though the publisher did contact me last week to buy ad space. I’m disappointed CITY was so dismissive of my 17year professional record and impact on the community. Unfortunately, that’s an attitude I’ve encountered before; it’s a misconception that broadcast journalists are shallow and attention-seeking. I understand that building constructive relationships is critical for legislative work. I just believe more of those relationships need to be with constituents than they have been during my opponent’s tenure. Outside of affluent enclaves in Southeast Rochester, a majority of constituents are not familiar with Bronson and repeatedly tell me he has not been responsive to their needs. CITY goes to great lengths to make Bronson’s “behind the scenes” work look exemplary, though there’s not
much of a record to support these claims. Calling yourself a great worker behind the scenes is a terrific way to inoculate yourself against accountability to the public. Behind the scenes work is only part of his job. He’s not doing the work when it comes to staying in touch with constituents and making sure their concerns are heard before crucial votes. Bronson is now raising concerns about START-UP New York, which is a failed economic development program. I’m among those who raised concerns when it was first proposed. CITY never mentioned Bronson’s vote to tie teacher evaluations to tests. Yes, it was part of the budget. However, he hasn’t sponsored bills to roll back harmful education policies. He’s been completely silent about concerns over high-stakes testing. CITY also dismissed serious questions about Bronson’s use of taxpayerfunded mail and his travel expenses. CITY never asked him why he supports a pay raise for lawmakers. Bronson is deeply-entrenched in Albany’s broken system and wants us to believe this system works for us. Leadership is important. Transparency is important. Engagement is important. I will work hard to represent everyone in this district. RACHEL BARNHART
Barnhart is a candidate for State Assembly, 138th District Mary Anna Towler’s response: We’re happy
to let Barnhart make the case for her election, and we welcome other responses related to that race. However, Barnhart’s reference to “the publisher” calling to discuss advertising — as though it were related to our endorsement — deserves comment. This company has two co-publishers: my husband Bill and myself. Bill’s responsibilities are in sales and marketing; mine are
in editorial. Both of us, as publishers, manage the top operations and direction of the company. For all of CITY’S 45 years, we have adhered rigorously to journalistic ethics. Our staff adheres to those ethics equally rigorously. CITY is not Bill and me; it is 19 staffmembers; numerous freelance writers and photographers; distribution folks, and a board of directors that provides business counsel. To suggest that our political endorsements are linked to advertising purchases is to attack the integrity not only of my husband and myself but also the integrity of all of these dedicated, talented CITY people. We have never based editorial coverage on advertising. Our editorial staff bases its endorsements and other editorial decisions on research, experience, knowledge of the community, and extensive, lively discussions. I am proud of the knowledge, perception, and humility that they bring to that important responsibility and deeply regret Barnhart’s suggestion that they have acted unethically. The members of our sales staff have reached out to political candidates every year of our publishing history, as they do to people, businesses, and organizations throughout the year. Like many media salespeople, ours sometimes lose important sales because of editorial coverage a client perceives as unfavorable or politically objectionable. The loss affects these salespeople financially, and they take those losses with professionalism and grace, for which we are grateful. Our responsibility is to our readers and the general public. Our ethical standards are our most valuable attributes. An attack on our editorial, advertising, and management decisions is perfectly acceptable. An unfounded attack on the ethics of the superb people who produce CITY is not.

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
A depressing campaign nears its bitter end Well, here we are in September. And in just over two months, we’ll elect a new president. Sigh. It’s hard to remember a more dispiriting election campaign. And I can’t remember being more concerned about the country’s prospects as we prepare for a new presidential administration. Even the candidates themselves are a problem. The uninformed, hotheaded Donald Trump has absolutely no experience that would qualify him for the presidency. He would be a terrible national leader – and he would very likely be a dangerous one. And I’m not nearly as enthusiastic about Hillary Clinton as many people are; to me, she’s not the best person to lead this divided country right now. But Clinton is experienced, and she is bright, and I think she could make a fairly good president. If she’s elected, though, odds are that her supporters’ celebration will be a short one. For one thing, there seems little chance that Republicans in Congress will be any more willing to compromise with Clinton than they have been with President Obama. Big money has far too much influence with elected officials. And even without that pressure, the country is so deeply polarized that legislators who compromise can find themselves voted out of office. All this at a time when the next president and Congress will be handed enormous, complicated challenges: climate change, health care, the country’s aging infrastructure, trade agreements, immigration, the economy, terrorism, criminal justice, racism, foreign policy. And it will take a strong, cohesive Congress working with an intelligent, experienced president to deal with them. Making matters worse: the public’s lack of enthusiasm about both candidates. On a recent PBS NewsHour, syndicated columnist Mark Shields cited a Gallup poll suggesting that 51 percent of Republicans and 42 percent of Democrats wish their party had nominated someone else. And New York Times columnist David Brooks noted the ramifications of Clinton’s large “unfavorable” numbers. Assuming that Clinton is elected, he said, “we go into an administration with someone the country fundamentally doesn’t trust.” What, Brooks asked, does that do to the nation’s morale? “Somehow,” he said, “it just seems so dispiriting, if she does win, that we would go through four years where people feel this personal distrust for the commander in chief. That can’t be good for the country, if it stays like that.”
Americans need to find a way to heal the divisions in this diverse and bitterly divided country.”
We need to find a way to heal the divisions in this country, and ideally, the healing would start with all of us. With us embracing our diversity – our diversity of ethnicity and religion, and our diversity of opinion. And with all of us being willing to respect different opinions, and to understand that in a democracy, we have to find a way to compromise and move forward together. We haven’t done much of that for the past eight years. And we’re so deeply divided now, and so bitterly vocal about our divisions, that I’m not sure the healing can start with us. If that’s the case, healing is up to elected officials. They’ll have to be not only our representatives but also our leaders. Our healers and role models. It’s hard to hold out hope for that, though, with elected officials on the right and left wallowing in the mud. (Subject line of an email I received last week: “Defeat this pathetic coward.” The sender: Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren.) I’ve become fascinated with articles and books about American presidents who served in times of crisis, who led and inspired the nation. How did they do that? “As Americans,” the Times’ Thomas Friedman wrote recently, “we were once summoned by our politics to be participants in a race to the moon. Lately we’ve been summoned by our politics to be spectators in a race to the bottom. We can do better, and we must.” I wish I felt confident that the next president could help us do that. rochestercitynewspaper.com

A SUMMARY OF THIS WEEK’S PAPER
WEEKEND PLANNER A HANDFUL OF AWESOME THINGS TO DO THIS WEEKEND 4 CITY
SEPTEMBER 7-13, 2016
Connected Communities, Inc. is a recently formed nonprofit whose primary mission is to steer revitalization of the EMMA and Beechwood neighborhoods; both have a major interest in seeing East Main Street improve. The nonprofit is partnered with Purpose Built Communities, which is credited with improving depressed neighborhoods in more than a dozen cities. Dorothy Parham, founder of EMMA, along with some EMMA residents and allies from nearby neighborhoods, are firm in their opposition to the HillsideHome Leasing housing project. They say it’s too big and doesn’t fit the character of the neighborhood. Parham was kicked off of CCI’s board as a result of her opposition, and in return EMMA severed ties with the nonprofit. Calls to Connected Communities, Inc. for this story were not returned.
No one is against development, but projects shouldn’t be forced on the neighborhood, Parham says. Adding a multi-unit structure and about 200 more residents to EMMA in its current challenged state would hurt the neighborhood instead of help it, she says. While it would add new residents, it would displace others, she says. The project has been rejected by the City Planning Commission twice, despite a reduction in units from 76 to 50. It comes before the Planning Commission again at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, September 12, in City Council chambers at City Hall, 30 Church Street. EMMA residents have their own plan to revitalize their neighborhood, which calls for helping elderly cashstrapped residents with repairs on neglected properties and cleaning up East Main Street.

Internationally renowned photographer, curator, educator, author, and editor Nathan Lyons died August 31 after succumbing to pneumonia. He was 86. Lyons made enormous contributions to photography as well as to the discussion surrounding the medium. He exhibited his work extensively, and his art is collected by numerous institutions around the world. He is best known for his stark black-and-white images of the urban landscape, each one a showcase of his philosophic mind. He served as the curator of photography and an associate director at George Eastman Museum from 1961 to 1969, when he resigned and founded the independent Visual Studies Workshop. He also founded and served as the first chair of the Society for Photographic Education and initiated the founding of Oracle, an annual meeting of photographic curators. In 2000, Lyons received the Infinity Award from the International Center of Photography in New York City for lifetime achievement in photography. He was distinguished professor emeritus at SUNY Brockport. A public memorial celebration of Lyons will be held at Visual Studies Workshop; details to be announced. A retrospective exhibition of his work has been in the works at George Eastman Museum, and will open in the summer of 2018.

On the fiber fast lane Monroe County and the City of Rochester are poised to hire a Denver-based firm to study their fiber networks and to help them figure out whether they could open the systems to outside users. Magellan Advisors has worked with several cities — from Riverside, California, to Hudson, Ohio, — to assess the state of their fiber networks, to help them plan improvements, or to develop new fiber systems. The firm was one of three to respond to a county request for proposals, and the cost of the $75,000 contract will be split evenly between the county and the city. City Council is set to approve the city’s share next week, while the County Legislature approved its share in June. Former County Executive Maggie Brooks and Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren announced the joint project in November. “Ultimately the city and county just want to know the state of what we have and what potential there is for efficiency improvements,” says city spokesperson Jessica Alaimo. “The consultant will provide recommendations on how we may tap into and utilize any excess fiber capacity to improve its value to the taxpayers.”
The two governments control a total of three fiber networks: the city owns a small network while the county owns one network and will soon acquire another. They want to know how much capacity the systems provide, and they want to find ways to make the systems operate more efficiently, which would increase capacity. Officials assume that the networks have plenty of unused capacity, but they need to know for sure before they start letting new users tap in. One of the county networks complicates the overall picture, however. The county’s Pure Waters division has over the course of several years laid an extensive fiber network throughout the county. The 367 miles of fiber cable snake through the city and deep into the suburbs. “Pure Waters pretty much dropped fiber every time they opened a manhole,” says county spokesperson Bill Napier. This is mostly good. Monroe County essentially has a publicly-controlled fiber backbone, which is something that many communities can’t claim. County and city officials say that it’s a serious advantage in an increasingly high-tech economy. But because the network was pieced together over time and not designed and built all at once, the county doesn’t know how

much capacity the network can provide. Pure Waters dropped 12-strand cables in some places, and higher-capacity 144-strand cables in others, Napier says. The county will get its second network when it buys the assets of the dissolving Monroe Security and Safety Systems local development corporation. The assets include a fiber network that was built recently as part of a massive public safety communications upgrade. That network was built to spec, so it’s uniform and officials know its capabilities, Napier says. Ultimately, the assessment is meant to give county and city policy makers reliable information that they can use to make decisions regarding the networks, Napier says.
PRIMARY POLL IS LIVE!!

POLL RUNS THROUGH SEPTEMBER 16
DEVELOPMENT | BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN
Fight over schools project highlights divide Questions over who got work on a hugely expensive project to overhaul Rochester’s aging school buildings have culminated in a lawsuit that some say threatens the whole deal. Politics, longstanding grudges, and racial tensions add fuel to the fire. The first phase of the $1.3 billion project surpassed hiring goals for women and people of color. Many City of Rochester residents also worked on the project, which is critical, given the high rate of unemployment for people of color in some areas of the city. But Allen Williams, the head of the board that oversees the project, says that while the diversity hiring goals were met, there are questions about how many apprentices, particularly minority apprentices, got work. That’s key, because apprenticeships are a ticket to a solid career and a middle-class lifestyle, he says. That’s why he voted against including a Project Labor Agreement for the project’s second phase, he says. Such agreements govern terms and conditions of employment on a specific job. Three other members of the Facilities Modernization Program board joined Williams and the agreement was rejected 4-3. The vote angered and confused the construction unions, who say that the community should celebrate the diversity achievements in the Facilities Modernization Program’s first phase, which were attained under a PLA. “FMP is the single most successful hiring program for minorities and women in Rochester’s history,” says Aaron Hilger, president of the Builders Exchange of Rochester. “A number of us in the industry are completely poleaxed or confused about why we’re having all of this controversy. Every single thing that the building trades said they were going to do, they did.” The unions and the oversight board’s former chair, Tom Richards – Rochester’s former mayor – dispute Williams’ claims about the apprentices. Hilger says that 200 to 400 apprentices worked on the first phase and that Williams and Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren were just looking for an excuse to kill the PLA. The unions

(Top) Allen Williams, head of Rochester Joint Schools Construction Board, says that there are other ways to meet diversity goals than a project labor agreement. FILE PHOTO (Bottom) Monroe High School (pictured) students are currently at John Marshall while their school is renovated. But the cramped conditions are causing problems, officials say. FILE PHOTO
are now suing the board. The case will be heard in State Supreme Court on Wednesday, September 7. But there’s a lot more going on here. Williams and two of the other board members
who voted against the PLA work for the City of Rochester and are viewed by many to be loyal to Warren. Warren did not get the construction unions’ support during her election bid, and many of her critics, including at least one member of the FMP board, say that she orchestrated the PLA vote as payback. Williams denies that. Warren appoints only three of the seven members of the FMP board, and a fourth is a joint appointment by her and the Rochester schools superintendent. The mayor couldn’t swing a vote even if she wanted to, Williams says. And Warren did not tell him how to vote on the PLA, he says. Prior to the PLA vote, the board voted to remove Tom Richards as board chair, replacing him with Williams. Critics say that Warren
pulled the strings there, too, as revenge on a former political rival. Richards and Warren faced off in a tough 2013 Democratic primary for mayor. The race illustrated the deep divide in Rochester: an affluent white man from the corporate world who was seen by supporters as a steady guiding hand against a young black woman concerned about the plight of many people of color in the city. Warren scored an unexpected but decisive victory in the primary. But some of Richards’ backers broke custom and instead of supporting Warren in the general election, continued to push the incumbent mayor. The fallout left a deep split in the local Democratic Party and continues to weaken the party today. It’s hard to look at the FMP fight and not see shrapnel from the 2013 fracture. Some of the white members of City Council, along with Latina Jackie Ortiz, want answers about the PLA vote. They want to know why the oversight board rejected the PLA and, especially, how the board will make sure that
women and people of color get their fair share of jobs in FMP’s second round without a PLA. One of the Council members is Molly Clifford, a staunch Richards supporter and Democratic insider who helped lead the 2013 campaign to keep Richards in office after Warren won the primary. The African-American members of City Council have been largely silent on the PLA issue, except for Council member Adam McFadden, who says that Council has no authority in the matter and lambasted his colleagues for getting involved. With $1.3 billion at stake, pledges that the overhaul project would be free of politics were probably naïve. But the racial split is particularly discouraging. What happens next depends on the outcome of the September 7 court hearing. The dispute hasn’t caused serious delays yet, but it could, depending on how long the ruling takes, whether there’s an appeal, and other factors. Williams says that he is concerned that the State Education Department might get involved, too, since the department has final say over the construction plans. That could cause delays, he says. The construction unions say that losing the PLA will add about $14 million to FMP’s $435 million second phase. Under PLA’s, the many different unions working on a project operate under the same collective bargaining agreement, which saves money, the unions say, and PLA’s also prevent strikes. Williams says that the $14 million number is “soft.” And State Senator Joe Robach has entered the picture. He wrote to the FMP board, asking members to reinstate the PLA. The state funds the project, so Robach’s concerns could theoretically become an issue. But Williams says that most of the money for the project is already set aside and it’s not clear that Robach or other state officials could disrupt things at this point. The irony is that both sides in this dispute say that they want the same thing: to make sure that as many women, people of color, and city residents get jobs on the FMP as possible and that those jobs lead to careers and a path out of poverty. Despite agreement on the overall objective, it seems unlikely they will come together anytime soon. Williams says that you can reach those goals without a PLA because state law requires a diverse workforce and that you can vet each potential contractor with diversity in mind. But the unions say that after years of trying and failing to achieve diversity in their ranks, PLA’s are the only sure path they’ve found to that goal. “We made the goals high enough where we had to do something to make a difference,” says David Young, president of the Rochester Building and Trades Council. “We’re trying to help the entire community. It helps us, too; we’re part of the community.”

Mad Hatter Restaurant and Bakery, formerly
known as Mad Hatter Tea Room and Café, has moved from its Webster location to the former French Quarter Café space at 176 South Goodman Street. The name and location are just a few of the changes that owner Kristina Dinino-Jeffords has made. The new location has enabled an expansion from eight tables to 23, allowing seating for up to 60 people. Dinino-Jeffords has also added a full-service bakery to the business. Opening a bakery has long been a goal for Dinino-Jeffords. In addition to having bakers in the family (her family owned a bakery called Romeo’s on Jay Street in the 1940’s), this was something she and her mother had dreamed of together. Her mother was diagnosed with central lobe dementia, and Dinino-Jeffords wanted to make sure that dream was fulfilled. Some of the recipes have long been in the family, like the Italian meatball cookies, the Linzer torte cookies, and most of the cake recipes. Pastry Chef Hayley Dahlberg is in charge of bringing the recipes to fruition. Dinino-Jeffords created the restaurant’s café menu which includes entrees like
biscuits and gravy ($9.75) with homemade cheddar cheese biscuits and British herb gravy — the gravy is one of many vegetarian and vegan items found at the new location. The bakery sells vegan and gluten-free pastries, and there are items on the breakfast and lunch menu that are herbivore-friendly as well. Any of the restaurants sandwiches, like the grilled marinated veggie sandwich ($11.25) can be made with gluten-free bread. There are more than 30 teas to choose from for the restaurant’s Traditional British High Tea Service, served daily at 3:30 p.m. — the service is by reservation only. DininoJeffords is currently working on obtaining a liquor license and hopes to serve alcohol by January 2017. The space can be rented for private parties after 3 p.m. with a separate catering menu available. The Mad Hatter Restaurant and Bakery is located at 176 South Goodman Street, and is open Monday through Sunday, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Breakfast is served until 11 a.m.; lunch served from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. Breakfast is served all day Saturday and Sunday. High Tea is served Monday through Saturday at 3:30 p.m. by reservation only. 545-4985; madhatterrochester.com.

Chris Duarte CD Release Party. Abilene Bar & Lounge,
There’s precious little about this band online. In fact, I couldn’t find a damn thing. Nada. So let’s look at what we do have, namely the band’s self-titled disc that came across my desk. The album is a classic, mid-tempo head-banger combining a serious bump and drive with plenty of thud. The production saves the day in spots where the songs come off perhaps a little predictable. The pieces that comprise “Louddy Jack” fall in the right places, especially when Mike Brandes’ big guitar comes unhinged and heads north on the neck. Just dig the guitar break on the cut “Momentum.” This is real guitar hero stuff a la Robin Trower or Gary Moore, which may have you adding an air guitar component to your listening experience. Let ‘em go ahead and stare. The band doesn’t seem afraid to mix things around a bit dynamically, but it doesn’t offer anything innovative or too crazy. Still, “Louddy Jack” is a good rock ‘n’ roll plater all the same. Dig it now. — BY FRANK DE BLASE
Ed Iseley “Experience” Self-released ediseleyexperience.com
With a plaintive guitar approach and a beautiful baritone that could easily be suited for a lullaby, Rochester singer-songwriter Ed Iseley looms large with his new album, “Experience,” amid his own reflections and ruminations. And as serious as his lyrics spell each song’s story out, Iseley seems to start with a shrug and a smile — it’s a wry one as he drags the listener into each story and its sentiments. Iseley’s expert finger work on the acoustic guitar rides gently above his minimalist backing band, allowing for lyrical phrases — like “I’m out of touch/because it costs too much,” on the cut “Out Of Touch,” or my favorite line, “The nights I got away with/ but the days I had to pay,” from “Meant To Be Real” — to shine. There’s something about a musician who can lay what he means on the table with room for the listener to identify and empathize. Often the beneficiary is the artist themselves. In Iseley’s case, it’s the sharing of like-minded stories while healing similar wounds. There’s room for all of us in “Experience.” — BY FRANK DE BLASE

How did it all start? Erick Perrine: We started out just the two of us
with electric drums. Katie would record stuff in her room. I’d come home and she’d have a comforter over her head whispering into this little recorder. It was kinda terrifying; “There’s a person with a sheet over their head.” Preston: I was blocking out sound. I didn’t want to hear the neighbors. So there was no studio? Preston: Nope. It was all blanket. Our first
album was recorded under that blanket. I did the drums and keyboards, and sang under the blanket.
Did Erick record his parts there as well? Preston: No. He thinks outside the blanket. 12 CITY SEPTEMBER 7-13, 2016

ALT-GRASS | THE VINE BROTHERS
The Vine Brothers use bluegrass as a root to loftier things. The instrumentation — mandolin, guitar, upright bass — is certainly a rootsy strain of wood and wire along with an old time approach to the music. But there is also the pervading lilt of Gypsy jazz along with soulful lyrics that skirt the twilight between happy and sad, light and dark. It’s bluesy, too, offering a way to draw the listener in with its familiarity, and crowning them with its uniquely unmatched and unparalleled twists and twirls. Both regal and rootsy.

VOCAL | PERPETUAL ANTICIPATION
The phrase “perpetual anticipation” is bandied about a good deal in the lyrics of the musical “A Little Night Music.” Now it is the name of a quintet of local singers which started out in a Pittsford Musicals production of that Stephen Sondheim work. Sopranos Myriah Marsh and Kristin Mellema, mezzo-soprano Allyn Van Dusen, and tenor Thomas Racculia enjoyed their anxiously amorous musical experience so much they decided to stick together as an ensemble, adding baritone Michael Roddy. Perpetual Anticipation, with pianist Julie Covach, will perform at The College at Brockport this Friday night. The program includes classical and Broadway selections by everybody from Francesco Cavalli to Jason Robert Brown as well as a sequence of songs by contemporary female musical theater songwriters. There’s also, of course, a little Sondheim.

SPOKEN WORD | LYDIA LUNCH
Lydia Lunch’s career as a provocateur includes a succession of anarchistic bands: Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, Beirut Slump, and 8 Eyed Spy. Lunch and her cohorts took the punk aesthetic to another level in the late 1970’s by embracing nihilism, and she was a key figure in the No Wave movement, a noisy, dissonant scene that was characterized by some as being unlistenable. Besides her music, Lunch has appeared in films, authored several books, and performed as a spoken word artist. This event is billed as a spoken word performance.

Attention must be paid “Assassins”
REVIEWED FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 2 CONTINUES THROUGH SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 24 BLACKFRIARS THEATRE, 795 EAST MAIN STREET TICKETS START AT $28.50 BLACKFRIARS.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY LEAH STACY
The opening show of Blackfriars Theatre’s 2016-17 season features guns, presidents, and a national anthem — and a premise that began more than 100 years ago in another dark theater. It was Ford’s Theatre, 1865. On April 14 — Good Friday — a well-known actor named John Wilkes Booth became the first successful presidential assassin; and Abraham Lincoln became the first assassinated US president. Some historical rumors hint that the first presidential assassination was the result of a string of bad theatrical reviews, and Booth’s bitterness, combined with a hunger for fame, led to the deed. More reliable sources say it was Booth’s loyalty to the South, and he’d been plotting the act. In the 1980’s, composer Stephen Sondheim read a play by Charles Gilbert Jr. that fascinated him so much that he asked Gilbert if he could develop it into a musical. The resulting show was “Assassins,” with music and lyrics by Sondheim and book by John Weidman, which opened Off-Broadway in 1990. (A 2004 Broadway revival later won five Tony Awards.)
As the opener for Artistic Director Danny Hoskins’ second season at Blackfriars, “Assassins” is a bold choice in many ways. The dark humor has political undertones, and it contains content that might make some audiences uncomfortable. (When Sondheim penned “Assassins” in the late 80’s, gun control wasn’t part of the national dialogue.) Theatre is meant to push people out of their comfort zones, and this show may do some pushing. The set design by Eric Williamson is immersive: while the original set of “Assassins” was a carnival-themed game show featuring assassins from throughout history, co-directors Hoskins and Janine Mercandetti have established a circus setting, complete with twinkling lights and face-in-hole cutouts outside the theater entrance. Inside, actors sell tickets for games like “pop the balloon with the dart,” while others sell circus peanuts (and real peanuts) for $2 from concession boxes hanging around their necks. It’s a fun atmosphere, and one that encourages not only face-to-face engagement, but also social media engagement (the production has a hashtag, #AssassinsBT). For this version of the show, Hoskins and Mercandetti sought performers who were also musicians: everyone, at some point, appears to play an instrument (though not necessarily well), and the ensemble acts as the orchestra. It makes for a fastpaced, high-energy show — a good thing, considering the one hour and 45 minute musical doesn’t include an intermission.
While it’s a strong ensemble overall, several actors stand out. Colin D. Pazik plays the “leader” of the assassins, John Wilkes Booth. While he has performed in non-musical roles at Blackfriars (most recently as Hal in “Proof”), Pazik has the chops for singing roles and proves himself a truly versatile actor who shouldn’t be underestimated. Blackfriars newcomer Rachel Walsh claims the biggest laughs of the night for her consistently hilarious portrayal of ex-FBI agent Sara Jane Moore, who attempted (and failed) to assassinate President Gerald Ford in 1975. Abby Adair Reinhard plays the role of Moore’s partner-in-attempted-crime and Manson groupie Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme. Reinhard has a magnetizing stage presence throughout the show (particularly during the “Unworthy of Your Love” duet). Assistant musical director Matthew Wegman (who doesn’t often have the chance to perform an in-depth role, according to his program bio), plays the part of the Balladeer, a sort of narrator with a heavy lyrical responsibility. Wegman excels; carrying the narrative with strong, clear vocals and expressive acting instincts. His songs don’t last long enough, somehow. John Winter, who plays President McKinley’s assassin Leon Czolgosz, is another versatile actor not to be underestimated; he’s held some excellent roles around the city (most recently in “The Presstitutes” at MuCCC), and shows his range in this show with both an excellent Polish accent and a fine singing voice. Steve Cena, who portrays attempted President Nixon assassin Samuel Byck, has two tough sells with his role: lengthy monologues and eating real food while talking — but Cena triumphs, making his scenes some of the most compelling in the entire production. (A particularly great moment is the tape recording Byck makes for Leonard Bernstein, one of Sondheim’s closest friends and collaborators.) The costumes (and music) are matched to each character’s era, creating quite a bit of work for costumer Alyssa Sullivan. But she manages to match each impressively, which serves as a helpful timeline throughout the show. To the credit of props master John Engel, the guns used in the show don’t resemble real weapons. They’re more like the wooden toys used in childish games of Cowboys and Indians. When a gun “goes off” in the show, a drum is banged. So while the gun-heavy material could touch a nerve for some audience members, the stories are clearly presented with fictional aspects and a lot of creative license. There really isn’t a moral to the story. And it doesn’t need one. “Assassins” is part history lesson, part black comedy, and wholly enjoyable. It’s a strong start to year two for Hoskins, and (hopefully) sets a standard for the coming season.

DANCE | “SLIGHTLY SINFUL” Rochester City Ballet will open its 2016-17 season — its first full season under Artistic Director David Palmer — with “Slightly Sinful,” a three-piece program that includes renowned Flemish choreographer Danny Rosseel’s work of the same name. Rosseel, the former resident choreographer of the Royal Ballet of Flanders, set his “Slightly Sinful” to the music of Thomas Oboe Lee, and presented it in 1996 on Flemish national public broadcaster BRTN to acclaim. City Ballet’s performance of the piece will be its New York premiere, and Rosseel is in Rochester to restage his work. As its name might imply, “Slightly Sinful” explores ideas of hidden desires, sinful thoughts, and longing through sensuous movement. An interesting key point of “Slightly Sinful” is a large table created by local James Kelly for the dancers to perform on, around, and with. Also on the program is Palmer’s “Mist,” set to Philip Glass’s Violin Concerto No. 1, and a world premiere, also by Palmer, which was announced at City Ballet’s InStudio open rehearsal. Rochester City Ballet will perform “Slightly Sinful” on Friday, September 9, through Sunday, September 11, at Nazareth College Arts Center, 4245 East Avenue. 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday; 2 p.m. on Sunday. $37-$47. 389-2170; boxoffice. naz.edu; rochestercityballet.com. — BY JAKE CLAPP

ART | “TO DEAFHOOD WITH LOVE” Though Rochester has a considerable deaf population due to the presence of various institutions and resources (Rochester School for the Deaf and NTID, to name a couple), the deaf and hearing communities don’t interact as much as they arguably could. Help assuage that reality and learn more about the experiences particular to deaf people at “To Deafhood with Love,” currently on view at AMoR (Art Museum of Rochester, 610 Monroe Avenue). The show features artworks by De’VIA artists Karen Christie, Patti Durr, Laurie Rose Monahan, (with Nancy Rourke from September 28-30). De’VIA is a form of Deaf Art which reveals the Deaf experience. It includes affirmative art that exhibits pride in sign language and Deaf culture as well as resistance art that explores the painful experiences of oppression or exclusion. A closing reception will be held September 30, 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Friday, 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. For more information, visit facebook.com/ArtMuseumOfRochester. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

infomercial about the wonders of Disney culture by capturing heartbreakingly honest moments, like when Owen’s older brother expresses his fear of eventually being on his own to take care of Owen and his parents as they get older. Most importantly — and in contrast to many documentaries focused on those with disabilities — Williams allows Owen to explain his own fears and aspirations as the filmmaker steps back to let Owen be the hero of his own story. “Life, Animated” will screen Tuesday, September 13, at 7 p.m., and Saturday, September 17, at 1 p.m. at The Little Theatre (240 East Avenue).

Twenty-five years later, Markham dusted off the film canisters, had his work restored, and added a brand-new soundtrack. The results demonstrate a budding filmmaker’s ingenuity, delivering a charming take on the hero’s quest story as Markham remixes childhood influences from “The Lord of the Rings” to Disney’s “The Black Cauldron.” The rest of the evening includes a variety of works (everything from H.

You can see the Maplewood Neighborhood yourself on Saturday, September 17 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. when five historic homes are featured on the Maplewood Home Tour. Visit www.facebook.com/MaplewoodHomeTour for ticketing details. Built in 1920, 585 Seneca Pkwy. has a craftsmanship and scale typical of Seneca Parkway residences. It appears massive from the street, thanks to former porches that were enclosed with a five-sided wall of windows. A brick walkway leads to the covered front porch, inviting you to enter through the original door with its leaded glass window. In the foyer, a wide staircase features a handsome newel post and unique spindles. The current owners invested $30,000 in improvements including a new roof, renovated powder room and two full baths, and a very large and lovely kitchen. The oak floors were refinished to perfection on the first and second levels. Most of the restoration work has been accomplished, but the next owners will still find spaces to leave their mark, including the huge unfinished attic complete with maid’s quarters and sink. Sunlight fills the entire house, especially the living room with its six windows and the
adjacent reclaimed porch with five more. Crown molding meets at the corners with unusual cornices that lend great character. The woodburning fireplace has a simple, large wood mantle, flanked by lovely crystal sconces. In the dining room, a leaded-glass cupboard door provides storage/display space. Through a swinging door, the pantry leads to the kitchen— perfect for serving at a party. The kitchen is newly remodeled, yet remains in character with the home. Cherry cabinets, granite counters, stainless steel appliances, modern pendant lights over the eating-island, double sink – it has it all. Plus lots of windows overlooking the backyard, and access to a rear staircase. The three bedrooms are large and quite separate from each other. There was no cutting corners when it came to the second floor: the oak floors, crown molding, and built-in drawers and cabinets in the hall. The master bedroom is anyone’s dream; it is huge, has an attached full bath and a sitting/dressing room full of light. The fully-fenced rear yard features a weeping willow tree and several pines, yet has room for a paved patio and the potential for a large garden. The two-car detached garage is adjacent. This 2,464 square foot house is listed for $148,000 through Helga Das of Keller Williams Realty GR, 585-746-5737. by Elizabeth Teall Elizabeth is a Landmark Society volunteer.

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
Outstanding in Their Fields
The recently concluded Olympics included a few of the more obscure athletic endeavors (such as dressage for horses and steeplechase for humans), but U.S. colleges compete in even less-heralded “sports,” such as wood chopping, rock climbing, fishing, and broomball. University of Alabama, 2015 national football champions, dominates also in the 280-school bass-fishing competition, and New York’s Paul Smith College’s 5,000-student campus raucously cheers its championship log-splitting team (against seven other schools). And Ohio State whipped another football powerhouse, Nebraska, in ice-based broomball.
Why? Because We Can, That’s Why
We now have computer or cellphone apps to, for example, analyze the quality of one’s tongue-kissing; alert you when your zipper is inadvertently down; make a refrigerator also be a stereo and photo album; notify you when you need to drink more water; check the male-female ratio at local bars so, if you’re on the prowl, you can plan your evening efficiently; and reveal whether your partner has had someone else in bed while you were away (via differential contours of the mattress). And then, in August, the creators of the new “South Park” virtual reality game announced that they had figured out how to release a “fart” smell that is crucial to game-players when they put on the VR mask. Inexplicable: Pizza Hut announced in August that it had finally mastered
the technology to turn its cardboard delivery boxes into customers’ workable disk-jockey turntables and will make them available shortly in five stores in the United Kingdom. (Each box has two record decks, a cross-fader, pitch and cue controls, and the ability to rewind.) Music stars P Money and DJ Vectra are featured, and the boxes will sync via Bluetooth to phones and computers.
Lame: (1) Steven Scholz was sued for $255,000 in Oregon City, Oregon, in July after he allegedly fired on a family’s house (15 gunshots) and traumatized their young son inside. Scholz explained that he thought the Biblical Rapture had just occurred and that he was the only survivor. (2) Aman Bhatia, 27, was charged with battery and lewd molestation in July after allegedly groping six women at Disney World’s Typhoon Lagoon water park. Despite witnesses telling police that Bhatia was positioning himself for furtive groping, Bhatia claimed that his glasses were broken and thus he was not aware that women were in his path. In July, Ryan Bundy (a leader of the Malheur federal land occupation protest in Oregon in January), exercising his philosophy as a “sovereign,” wrote his judge that he rejects the federal court’s jurisdiction over him in his upcoming trial, but that he would agree to co-operate — provided the government pays him $1 million cash. Bundy (who signs court documents “i; ryan c., man”) said for that sum, he would act as “defendant” — or, as a bonus, if the judge prefers, as “bailiff,” or even as “judge.” (Bundy’s lawyer, not surprisingly, is Bundy.)
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 26 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Get serious when it comes to affairs of the heart. It’s time to step up your love life a notch and make a commitment to someone who has your back through the good and the bad you face. Make plans to strive for equality and for a better future. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Controversy will strike if you fall for someone you work with. Consider the consequences of an indiscrete encounter before you mix business with pleasure. Take the high road, and walk away from a tempting situation that has no long-term benefits and can leave you in a precarious position.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your playful, changeable attitude will attract romantic gestures from someone who is looking for love and adventure. Make plans to take part in an activity you both enjoy, and see where it leads. If you work as a team, it will be worth exploring and experimenting the possibilities of an ongoing relationship. CANCER (June 21-July 22): A practical but unique approach to love will turn out well for you. Offer an unusual pastime as a first date and a way to get to know each other better, if nothing more. Don’t let past circumstances interfere with future prospects.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Emotional problems will make you lean toward trying to achieve greater stability and security in your life. Taking the plunge and making a commitment is fine, but only if you do it for the right reason. If you truly love someone, move forward; if uncertainty prevails, walk away and start anew. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t let romantic situations make you angry. If something isn’t working out, admit it and move on. Take time to consider the motives behind your desire to be in a relationship, and you will gain perspective on the type of lover you should consider. Get your priorities straight.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your heart is in the right place, and your desire and passion are mounting. Finding that perfect fit is not easy. Your checklist will never be perfect when picking a partner, but the chance of it remaining that way for a lifetime is unlikely. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The person you are attracted to or the one showing interest in you will fall short when it comes to fulfilling your passionate needs. Look for the partner willing to take a detour or experiment with you throughout life, not the eye candy who has a different agenda. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
Don’t expect honesty when it comes to personal relationships. Someone will be inclined to offer you what you want to capture your heart and make you feel like the luckiest person on the planet. Don’t take anything said for granted, and dig deep into the past until you find the truth. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Size up your romantic situation and where your head is regarding commitment before you make a promise you will have second thoughts about honoring. Pressuring someone for affection will end in disappointment. Getting what you want for the wrong reason will have a hefty price tag. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):
You’ll attract a serious contender when it comes to love. Communication will help you formulate exactly what you want and can expect from someone who has captured your heart. Love at first sight can happen, but it’s what you discover about each other that will lead to going the distance. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll view relationships differently. Having a practical approach to finding love will pay off, giving you the leverage you need and want to build a strong and loving partnership with someone who shares your values as well as your dreams. Passion may be secondary initially, but it will grow exponentially.
