Holding history, framing futures: RMSC at 100 All endeavors are precarious, and those which seek to last must weather the ebb and flow of cultural shifts, prosperity, and community needs. Even a space based on history must earn its place in the passage of time, and in doing so over the course of the past 100 years, the Rochester Museum and Science Center has had to shift its role from purely a keeper of historic record to a facilitator of the present and future community. RMSC is currently celebrating its centennial anniversary, and like the double-headed Janus,
is casting simultaneous stares both proudly backward at where the institution has been, and enthusiastically forward into the yet-to-be. Take a look back at what started out at The Rochester Museum, tasked with collecting our area’s history, and how it turned into a hands-on museum dedicated to educating both children and adults through a wide variety of programming.

Obama’s missing urban agenda
On Mayor Tom Richards’ guest commentary, “Aid the Transformation of America’s Urban Areas”): Most of the discussion about improving urban areas focuses on various government “economic development” programs, whether they be tax breaks, outright grants, or periodic “master plans” drawn up by people who will never implement them because they don’t have the money. All of these efforts have long track records of failure. The only way to rebuild a city is through jobs, and the only way to create jobs is to make your community attractive for job creators. Right now, New York is at the bottom of the barrel when it comes to attracting business. Despite the governor’s endless self-congratulatory press conferences and catchy slogans about New York being open for business, the fact is we still have the highest taxes; most burdensome, anti-business regulations; the most confrontational unions; the highest utility costs, etc. Create the conditions for business to return and grow in Rochester, and you won’t be endlessly fretting about how to divide a shrinking pie. Unfortunately, encouraging business is about as attractive to the liberal Democrats who run our cities and our state as getting the hives. BOB S
Posted on rochestercitynewspaper.com There is no vision for Rochester. Residents are seen as revenue-makers (red-light cameras, parking fees, etc.) while out-of-town developers and big projects are seen as our “saviors.” There needs to be focus on locally and cooperatively owned businesses throughout the city, not just in gentrified areas. There needs to be a change in direction, and that opportunity is coming. DAVE ATIAS

Consult with disability community
Let’s not be pushed over an imaginary “fiscal cliff.” As this country continually runs a deficit, it makes sense to look at many programs, including Medicaid and Medicare, to see whether or not savings can be achieved. For many years, ADAPT and others in the disability community have pushed for changes in the types of services that Medicaid and Medicare would fund in order to meet the needs of the people those programs are intended to serve. For example, allowing Medicaid to pay for attendant care in the home is a policy that ADAPT helped make possible. This change in policy improved people’s quality of life and saved money. If Congress wants to be fiscally and socially responsible with Medicare and Medicaid, they need to consider suggestions put forth from those in the disability community. KENYATTA DACOSTA, ROCHESTER
A lesson from Japan
I returned a few days ago from 11 days in Japan traveling through several areas teaching and speaking about nonviolence and sustainability. Many of the people I worked with had lives devastated in various ways by radiation in the Fukushima area after the March 2011 earthquake: Couples split up because of different views on safety of air and water for their children. Families forced to move, often losing most of their financial stability as a result, as well as their communities. Hundreds of people living in camps, waiting with dwindling hope for government support to help them re-settle. Public interest in their plight has faded. Distrust with government and other official assurances about safe levels of radiation in air, water, and food continues to grow. All of this feels relevant as the people of New York and its lawmakers consider hydrofracking. Some or many of the issues from Japan could become our issues as toxic chemicals enter our ground water, eco-system, food chains, and bodies. The abundant fresh waters of New York are such an extraordinary resource in a world that is becoming warmer and drier with each passing year. I hope we will choose not to pollute millions of gallons of that resource in shortsighted pursuit of natural
gas. I hope we will choose to look harder for solutions to long-term economic and energy issues. With the anxious eyes of Japanese parents still fresh in my mind, I hope we will choose to be good ancestors for our children and their children. KIT MILLER, BRIGHTON

Moved by ‘Le Mis’
My experience with the movie adaptation of “Les Miserables” was quite different than Adam Lubitow’s (“Better on the Boards,” review, January 2). I was accompanied to the movie by my “son” and his friend, both foreign exchange students from China, and from the opening to the final scene, we were enthralled. I proudly admit that I sat there with tears in my eyes for most of the movie and several times had to put the hood of my sweatshirt over my head to avoid disturbing other moviegoers. In my opinion, this movie adaptation of a staged musical was perfect in every sense and the best movie adaptation of a staged musical of all time. Every role was perfectly cast, even minor characters. I am not a big fan of Russell Crowe – I agree with Mr. Lubitow that Crowe cannot sing – yet I found him perfect as Javert. I was especially enthralled with stage veteran Samantha Barks as Eponine, though Mr. Lubitow barely mentioned her. The filming of the movie was spectacular in every sense. The actors’ live singing added to the immediacy and richness of this film. I have recommended this film to several friends who would not be caught dead watching a musical, either on the stage or in a film. They came back to me and said they loved it. Les Miserables is not a disappointment. TONY PERRI, ROCHESTER
An editing change to a reader’s letter in our December 26 issue resulted in a headline (“Guns, Controls, and America”) that misrepresented the focus of the letter. The original title, “The Irony of the Massacre in Newtown,” more clearly emphasized the disparity between the reaction of the Newtown shootings and the individual killings in the nation’s cities. We regret the error.

Facing our gun culture New York is toughening its gun-control laws, and that’s worth celebrating. But I’m not optimistic that we’ll go further – because we haven’t faced up to what our gun problem is. At both the state and federal level, the current focus is on “assault weapons.” And yes, guns of the kind that killed those children and adults in Newtown are a terrible problem. We should ban those weapons, and we should ban high-capacity magazines. But assault weapons, which are most often used in mass shootings, aren’t the only guns killing people. As tragic as those shootings are, deaths by assault weapons are dwarfed by the deaths from other guns. Are those victims any less precious? Are their deaths any less abhorrent? Many of those victims are African American and Hispanic. What does it say about this country that we get upset only when there are mass shootings of predominantly middle-class, predominantly white Americans, in a movie theater or a school? Where is the outrage when a single person is gunned down in the inner city? The United States’ gun problem is unique. Among the world’s wealthy countries, Charles Blow wrote in the Times recently, “America has the highest gun homicide rate, the highest number of guns per capita, and the highest rate of deaths due to assault.” From the Washington Post’s Fareed Zakaria: 32,000 people died from gunshots in the US in 2011. That’s 87.7 gun deaths every day. “The US gun homicide rate is 30 times that of France or Australia, according to the UN Office on Drugs and Crime,” Zakaria wrote, “and 12 times higher than the average for other developed countries.” It’s not that we have more people with mental illness, said Zakaria, because we don’t. And we’re not the only country with lots of violence in popular culture. The problem, Zakaria wrote, is the easy availability of guns. And from Jennifer Kabat on Salon. com: There are 88.8 firearms per 100 people in the US. Among the world’s wealthiest countries, 80 percent of firearm deaths take place in the US. And it’s far more likely that a gun in the home will be used for suicide than for self-defense. Our gun problem is complicated. The roots of the trauma in Newtown and Aurora, Colorado, presumably, are different than those of the almost daily shootings in America’s cities. And all of those are different from the gunshots of an angry, inebriated husband or friend – or a citizen who thinks a visitor to his neighborhood is up to no good. Or a child who finds a loaded gun at home.
It says a lot about our values when a gun manufacturer promotes a gun with an ad saying ‘Get your man card reissued.’”
What they all have in common is guns and their availability. And it doesn’t seem possible to talk about that without talking about America’s culture of violence. Numerous studies have indicated that violent entertainment – video games, TV shows, movies, music – doesn’t make the average person violent. But I am troubled by the growing pervasiveness of violence – graphic violence – in our culture. It demeans us. And it distorts our values. It says a lot about our values when a gun manufacturer – the manufacturer of the rifle that killed the children in Newtown and the firefighters in Webster – promotes the gun with an ad saying “Get your man card reissued.” Will we come to our senses about guns? It’s hard to think that we will, when the gun lobby resists even the most logical controls on assault weapons – and guns are considered a symbol of manhood. How can we hope for effective legislation? You can’t get rid of guns, Megan McArdle wrote on the Daily Beast last week, because there are too many of them, the opposition’s too widespread, and the Supreme Court says Americans have a constitutional right to own guns. But if the Constitution couldn’t be changed, we’d still have slavery. And think what the result would be if we had refused to move against polio or tobacco. Are we really helpless to deal with one of the biggest public-health issues this country faces?

Tops’ COMIDA coupon The Tops store on Jefferson Road in Henrietta plans to move just down the road into another plaza. And it’s getting tax breaks to do it. Tops’ corporate business model calls for gas pumps at its stores, but pumps are prohibited at the current Jefferson Road location. The company wants to move to space at 1225 Jefferson Road, which is currently occupied by Frontier Communications. (It’s not clear where Frontier will go.) During its meeting Tuesday, the Monroe County Industrial Development Agency’s board

approved sales tax incentives for the Tops move. The plaza owner, 1225 Jefferson LP, plans to spend $320,000 to renovate 55,000 square feet of space for Tops, while Tops plans to spend approximately $2 million. The sales tax incentives for Tops and for 1225 Jefferson LP are estimated at a total of $121,600, according to COMIDA. COMIDA documents also say that the project will retain the equivalent of 79 full-time jobs and, over the next three years, create the equivalent of 18 full-time jobs. Without the move the store would leave the town entirely, says
Henrietta Supervisor Mike Yudelson. For that reason, along with the jobs that Tops plans to add, Yudelson says he supports the benefits. But the incentives are the type that IDA critics often complain about. They’re supposed to be used to attract or retain businesses that could locate anywhere. Grocery stores, however, are retail operations that locate based on markets. If they think they can build a thriving business in a certain area, they’ll set up shop there. IDA critics often say that incentives aren’t necessary.

“We don’t want to be disruptive and do that crazy shuffle-the-deck thing where we change everything around and discover three years later that academically nothing has changed and we’re in the same exact place.” [ ANITA MURPHY ]

Improvement plans due
The State Education Department issued a report last year that identified persistently low-performing schools and school districts. Priority schools are those with the lowest achievement, and focus schools are those at risk of becoming priority schools if preventive measures aren’t taken. The SED ranked Rochester’s schools among the worst of the worst. Out of the 60 schools in the district, Rochester has only four that are not priority or focus schools. And the district as a whole is considered a focus district. Before the month is over, Rochester schools Superintendent Bolgen Vargas has to submit individual plans to the SED for improving most of the district’s priority schools — some have plans already in progress — as well as an overall plan for improving the district. Most of the district’s plans will take one of two approaches. The whole school reform model involves an entire redesign that can include changes to a school’s leadership and improvements to the quality of instruction. The transformational approach entails building on the schools’ strengths. For example, James Wilson Foundation and Commencement High School, which already offers an International Baccalaureate program, would strengthen that program, says Anita
Murphy, the district’s deputy superintendent of operations. Vargas is recommending closing School 30, another SED option. The school’s English Bolgen Vargas. Language Arts FILE PHOTO proficiency is 7 percent. Though the SED gives district leaders several approaches to choose from, Vargas says there is one that he will never pursue: phasing out lowperforming schools as new schools are phased in. “We don’t want to be disruptive and do that crazy shuffle-the-deck thing where we change everything around and discover three years later that academically nothing has changed and we’re in the same exact place,” Murphy says. Expanding the school day is also a requirement for all priority schools, Murphy says. The district will provide extra instruction time to give students the time they need to learn, she says, instead of relying on intervention at a later time to help students catch up. The latter approach has frozen the district in a permanent mode of remedial instruction, Murphy says.

GUN CONTROL | BY JEREMY MOULE
New York gets tougher on guns The State Senate passed a new ban on assault weapons Monday. The Assembly was still debating on Tuesday afternoon, but is almost certain to approve the legislation. The legislation grandfathers in military-style weapons already owned by New Yorkers. But the latter is subject to a new permitting requirement. The assault weapons ban is part of a larger gun law package put forward by Governor Andrew Cuomo. The package also includes a stricter ban on high-capacity magazines, measures to track ammunition sales, and tougher penalties for gun crimes. Momentum has been building in New York and nationally for new laws and policies to keep military-style weapons out of civilians’ hands. Cuomo made gun control a significant part of his State of the State speech last week. The high-energy address was full of new initiatives for Upstate economic development, longer school days, higher minimum wage, and other plans. He also proposed a legislative package addressing gender equality. But the gun issue took priority. Cuomo isn’t alone when it comes to advocating for new gun control measures in New York. Rochester Police Chief James Sheppard, speaking shortly before Cuomo took the stage for the State of the State, said New York can and should lead the nation in addressing gun violence. The District Attorneys Association of the State of New York released its own list of proposed gun law reforms, including a stricter ban on high-capacity magazines and tracking ammunition purchases. And at the federal level, the White House and some members of Congress have vowed to push for a new federal ban on assault weapons. Vice President Joe Biden has presented recommendations for new gun policies to President Barack Obama. Obama says he will release specifics sometime this week. New York enacted an assault weapons ban
in 2000, basing it on a federal law in place from 1994 to 2004. But that state ban was full of loopholes: the same problem plagued the now-expired federal statute. (Once Cuomo signs the new legislation, many of the provisions will take effect immediately and replace the 2000 law.) The state’s laws have banned certain guns, but otherwise relied on a two-feature test for any semiautomatic gun with a detachable magazine. If the weapon had any two features from a list — things like a 6 CITY
JANUARY 16-22, 2013
pistol grip, threaded barrel, flash suppressor, or folding stock — it was illegal. New Yorkers Against Gun Violence and other gun control groups pushed the state to adopt a single-feature test, and the new ban uses that criteria. New York should also appoint someone to identify new or redesigned weapons covered in the new ban, says Jackie Hilly, executive director of New Yorkers Against Gun Violence. But the likely new law does not appear to do that. “That’s really a critical thing because if you don’t, then you’re in the position of having to change the statute every time you turn around, which is impractical,” Hilly says. New York already banned high-capacity magazines, which are frequently used in mass shootings. The new legislation lowers the existing capacity limit from 10 rounds to seven, and closes a loophole that allowed the sale and possession of high-capacity magazines made before 1994. It’s easy to determine the year of manufacture for a gun, since all firearms are stamped with serial numbers, says Laura Cutilletta, a senior staff attorney with the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence. Magazines, however, have no serial number and there’s no other reliable way to determine when they were made. “It makes a lot of sense not to allow that loophole,” Cutilletta says. The new legislation also requires instant background checks for ammunition purchases and a ban on ammo purchases over the Internet. Previously, New York had few restrictions on ammo purchases, aside from a minimum age requirement and bans on certain types of bullets. The gun legislation includes other measures
beyond the assault weapons and clip bans to counter gun violence. Cuomo and Senate Republicans wanted harsher penalties for gun crimes and several

(above) The state’s new assault weapons ban would cover AR-15 style rifles, which were used in the Webster and Newtown, Connecticut, shootings. FILE PHOTO
are included. Among them: a mandatory life sentence without parole for murder of a first responder. The legislation also includes provisions to standardize the pistol permit process across the state. And to keep your grandfathered-in assault weapon, you’ll need a permit, too. Permit holders have to recertify every five years. Permits with renewal requirements could be an effective way to curb illicit gun use, says John Klofas, a criminal justice professor at RIT who has studied crime guns in Rochester, because they help law enforcement keep track of lost or stolen guns. (In Rochester, most crime guns are pistols and many have changed hands several times.) New York should require periodicallyrenewed permits for all gun owners, Cutilletta says. It’s a way for the system to catch people who may no longer be able to legally own guns, she says. “Basically, it’s about responsibility,” she says. “We believe that if you want to own a gun, it’s your responsibility to the public to make sure that you are taking safeguards so that your gun is not going to end up at a crime scene.”
The new legislation creates a gun records database, though the information will not be made public. It also requires background checks for all gun sales, including private transactions. And it includes new provisions to help keep guns away from people who mental health professionals say may pose a danger to themselves or others. The legislation also includes an expansion of Kendra’s Law, which was sought by Republicans. The law allows a court to mandate outpatient treatment for people with mental illness who pose a threat to public safety.

A week of ups and downs for RPO It’s been an eventful week in the ongoing saga of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra. Hundreds showed up to a public meeting on Thursday, January 10, to support recently ousted music director Arild Remmereit and discuss issues with the RPO Board of Directors. And on Monday, January 14, the orchestra announced that it had signed a new four-year agreement with its musicians union and released encouraging financial numbers. The January 10 meeting held by a group identified as RPO Community Supporters featured the first public comments by Remmereit since the RPO Board announced in November that it would be ending his four-year contract two years early. Remmereit did not directly speak about the firing, but instead expressed his vision for the orchestra. His attorney, Glenn Pezzulo, later confirmed that Remmereit has not been paid since December; the RPO has cited breach of contract. The crux of the meeting featured speakers explaining to the crowd that while they had little power to reverse the decision to terminate Remmereit’s contract, they could get involved in determining the future of the RPO board. Speakers encouraged all RPO members — those who have donated $75 or more — to attend the January 23 general meeting at which new board members will be elected. While meeting organizers are pushing for an alternate slate of nominees to be considered at the meeting, RPO spokesman Mark Berry said this was not realistic given organization bylaws. Still, group organizers made it clear that they are looking at the long view, and are already eyeing the following year’s board elections. Regardless of the drama, the orchestra had a good weekend with two sold-out concerts in Kodak Hall featuring jazztrumpet sensation Chris Botti. Berry says that the RPO exceeded single-ticket sales goals for the concert by more than $35,000. That’s in addition to a 16 percent increase in single-ticket sales for the RPO’s 2012 holiday programming, with revenue totals slightly under $590,000 and attendance at more than 27,000 over the course of 10 performances, according to Berry. Those figures are important, Berry says, because it reflects what he termed an “outpouring of support” since the Remmereit controversy started, and since news was leaked that the RPO will report

an operating deficit of $750,000 for the just-concluded fiscal year. Berry said that the RPO’s Annual Campaign for the current fiscal year is $184,000 ahead of last year’s campaign at this point. On Monday, January 14, the RPO also announced that it had signed a new four-year agreement with the orchestra musicians. Wesley Nance, co-chair of the Musicians’ Negotiating Committee, said in a statement that it calls for “painful concessions” in the first two years, with restorations in years three and four. Nance also said in the statement that the contract was ratified by more than 75 percent of the RPO musicians. While specific details about the new contract were not disclosed, RPO’s Berry confirmed that the first two years would feature truncated summer concert seasons, and that the contracts called for changes in health-care coverage for both the musicians and RPO administrative staff.

Every January they strike, maybe in your neighborhood, too: roving troublemakers who break into my house, wash my clothes in scalding water, then throw them into the dryer on its hottest setting. How else to explain the increased snugness of my jeans? Well, I guess it could be the fallout from that Bacchanalian bender that I embarked on right around Thanksgiving. I mean Halloween. Fine; it was Labor Day. Get off my back. Whatever the reason, many people begin damage control once the caloric onslaught of the holidays wanes, which inevitably means smarter food choices. Now, I’m certainly not a nutritionist, but most sentient adults are working with a basic knowledge of what’s good for you and what isn’t. Obviously, the wisest idea is to prepare your own food at home, but read on for some places around town where filling soups and sprawling salads make for a truly satisfying meal option when you get that restaurant itch. First, a few pro tips: watch out for those cream-based soups, politely request the dressing on the side if possible, and beware of
deep-fried anything on top of your salad. And please let us know about your favorite soup and salad spots. Oh, one more thing: enjoy! Magnolia’s Deli & Café (366 Park Ave., 271-7380, magnoliascafe.com) celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, and a peek at the menu reveals that Magnolia’s is very serious about salads. There are more than 15 mealworthy combinations of fruits, vegetables, and proteins available, like the Golden Spinach ($9.25), with Golden Delicious apples, pineapple, walnuts, goat cheese, and red onion, offered with honey mustard or Italian dressing. On my last visit I couldn’t resist a special called Winter Wonderland ($10.50), an eye-popping mélange of spring greens, sliced almonds, cranberries, pomegranate seeds, mandarin oranges, and feta, topped with a grilled chicken breast and served with balsamic vinaigrette. The handful of soups available was pretty tempting as well. Where Han Noodle is all white and bright, its brand-new suburban counterpart Bistro Han (687 Moseley Road, Perinton; 223-7333, bistrohan.com) is more akin to its moodier cousin, with jet-black furnishings, sexy swaths
of red, and awesome dandelion-esque lamps that look as though you could blow on them to make a wish. Han Noodle and Bistro Han serve many of the same dishes — including those luscious steamed buns filled with braised pork belly, scallions, shallots, peanuts, and pickles ($5) — but I was happy to find my old Chinese restaurant standby, subgum wonton soup ($8), a pristine-looking broth teeming with roast pork, shrimp, chicken, and an array of colorful veggies along with a few plump dumplings. Most people don’t associate Italian restaurants with lighter fare, but Tony D’s Coal-Fired Pizza (288 Exchange Blvd., 3406200, tonydsrochester.com) offers some yummy options for anyone craving the flavors of Italy but hoping to steer clear of carbs. On the menu right now is a roasted vegetable salad ($12) with bell peppers, fennel, radicchio, eggplant, and onions, topped with gorgonzola, toasted almonds, and moscato vinaigrette, but I usually go for the Sicilian-style calamari salad ($11), a simple, elegant blend of tender squid, onions, celery, olives, lemon, and olive oil served over mixed greens. And keep in
mind that Tony D’s delicious chicken wings ($8/$16) are roasted, not fried. The menu at the popular South Wedge mainstay Ming’s Noodles & Cuisines of Asia (1038 S. Clinton Ave., 244-0985, mingsnoodle.com) has grown positively massive over the years, but I generally gravitate toward the same dish: Soba Tofu Noodle Soup ($6.50), filled with a generous helping of tofu, a gaggle of vegetables, and tasty buckwheat noodles. Of course Ming’s also offers the Big Three (that’s wonton, hot and sour, and egg drop soups), but here you’ll also find lesser-known soups like the comforting West Lake minced beef soup ($2.55/$5.25) along with concoctions spanning the Far East, such as Vietnam’s famous pho ($6.50-$7.95), Thailand’s spicy tom yum noodle soup ($6.50-$7.95), and Japan’s umami-rich miso soup ($1.75-$3.50). Half Moon Creative Salads (2900 Monroe Ave., 248-4964 and 202 High Point Drive, Victor, 425-4711, halfmoonsalads.com) takes its name from the English translation for mezzaluna, the semicircular bladed utensil that chops together the goodies in Half Moon’s creations. This is cool for two reasons: 1. There’s a little bit of everything in each bite; and 2. No more unwieldy pieces of lettuce tracking dressing all over your face. Choose from salads like Le Café ($8.79 for the 24 oz. “half head”), containing arugula, red onion, artichoke hearts, sliced almonds, hard-boiled egg, bean sprouts, sun-dried tomatoes, and crumbled bleu cheese, or dream up your own from dozens of ingredients. Bonus: all the nutritional information about the salads can be found at Half Moon’s website. “I was surprised that Americans have been so slow to embrace the cooking of Korea,” culinary doyenne Ruth Reichl said a New York Times Magazine article from last October. She’s right, but I’ve been doing my part at Sodam Korean Restaurant (900 Jefferson Road, Building 1, 475-9810, sodamkoreanrestaurant.com), which turns out excellent food in a nondescript building at the Genesee Regional Market. My fellow soup lovers ought to put Sodam on their radar; beyond the menu listing for soup and noodles there are a wide variety of broth-based hot pots, with hearty filler like beef short ribs, pork, seafood, and vegetables. On a recent gray day I was totally charmed by Duk Mandu Gook ($9.95), a homey, traditional Korean soup thickened with egg and containing beef, dumplings, scallions, roasted seaweed, and chewy, thinly sliced rice cake.

Framing futures the rmsc today
rochester museum and Science Center
FEATURE | BY REBECCA RAFFERTY
All endeavors are precarious, and those that seek to last must weather the ebb and flow of cultural shifts, prosperity, and community needs. Even a space based on history must earn its place in the passage of time, and in doing so over the course of the past 100 years, the Rochester Museum and Science Center has had to shift its role from purely a keeper of historic record to a facilitator of the present and future community. RMSC is currently celebrating its centennial anniversary, and like double-headed Janus, is casting simultaneous stares both proudly backward at where the institution has been, and enthusiastically forward into the yet-to-be.
10 CITY JANUARY 16-22, 2013
During the course of any given month, there are a staggering number of opportunities to engage with programs, exhibitions, and recreational events offered by RMSC. Visitors to the main museum on East Avenue can learn about geological and anthropological history, taking us from the Ice Age, to the contact between native people in our region and colonists, to the innovators who built the boom town we now call home. In the “Adventure Zone” exhibition hall, kids can experiment with all manner of interactive exhibits focusing on physics, electricity, water cycles, and elements of weather. The “Expedition Earth” exhibits teach visitors about the ever-changing earth with a particularly local focus. Upper galleries feature the social histories of our region and beyond, with dioramas that reveal the lives of Native Americans, early settlers, and African Americans during the pursuit of freedom on the Underground Railroad. Adults may take in a lecture on a wide range of subjects by local and visiting scholars. The planetarium offers regular star shows, astronomical events, and films projected on the dome, laser shows set to popular music, as well as the continuous opportunity on Saturday nights to view the cosmos through the telescope (assuming the weather cooperates). The museum-run Cumming Nature Center in Naples offers a year-round series of hikes and special events, many of which contextualize and celebrate local flora and fauna.
a house for rochester’s history “In 1912, we were an agency of the city, and our home was at Edgerton Place, where the city headquarters was,” says Kate Bennett, current president of RMSC, which in 1912 was founded as simply The Rochester Municipal Museum. “We were side-by-side with the Rochester Public Library, the Rochester Historical Society, and we just learned recently that the zoo was there as well.” The initial idea behind creating a museum, Bennett says, was to collect and preserve
important artifacts that tell the story of the Rochester region, and to provide a sense of place and history to the people who lived here. “Today, we still care deeply still about providing a sense of place,” says Bennett, who has been with the RMSC since 1996. But the journey to the present has shifted toward a focus on getting youth excited about science and technology education. In the 1940’s, a donation of land and funding made by Edward Bausch, son of Bausch & Lomb founder John Jacob Bausch, who lived where the planetarium stands today, moved the museum from Edgerton Place to its current home on East Avenue. The Women’s Council, the museum’s network of volunteers that still exists today, helped pack and move the collection. Today that collection stands upward of 1.2 million objects. After Rochester experienced race-related rioting in 1964, “the city found itself in the situation where it needed to pay attention to citizens that really needed its support,” says Bennett. An analysis was conducted by the Center for Governmental Research Inc. regarding who was using the libraries, the zoo, and the museum, and the results suggested that the whole county used those institutions. So in 1968, Monroe County took on the responsibility of managing the museum and its compatriots. “We became at that point a public-private partnership with the county,” says Bennett. At roughly the same time, a gift from the Strasenburgh family helped build the Strasenburgh Planetarium, which “helped us create an institution that would help people imagine space travel,” says Bennett, “and to excite the kids about science, technology, engineering, and math.” In the 1970’s, the RMSC campus grew again with the addition of the Cunningham House, which is used for executive offices and private events, the Eisenhart Auditorium, and the building that now houses the Genesee Community Charter School.

working on staff, says Bennett. “The director at the time, Arthur Parker, created a very smart program that got some federal money through a Works Progress Administration project, and enabled us to work with Native Americans to create objects that came into the museum collection.” Some of those items were traded with other museums, which helped the Rochester Museum build a more robust collection. More recently, after September 11, 2001, there were cutbacks through county and state funding that were difficult to manage and overcome, says Bennett. “We’ve brought the budget back up and increased our earned revenue, and admissions represent a bigger percent of our budget than before,” she says. But because RMSC holds the county’s and city’s collection in trust for the community, it also receives some funding from the county. In 1988, the museum added the Elaine Wilson Hall, the current entrance to the museum, and a whole new series of exhibition halls were added in the 1990’s, including “Adventure Zone” and “Expedition Earth.” The 2006 addition of the third-floor Riedman Gallery, where RMSC hosts its traveling exhibitions, required an actual physical addition to the museum building. Over the years the focus of the museum also grew and shifted. “We have always had a focus on Rochester and a sense of place — history, geologic history, environmental history, as well as the anthropology, who has lived here in this
region,” says Bennett. But in the 1990’s, the trustees and the county wanted the museum to tackle the issue of science literacy, and provide more open-ended learning opportunities. “From our point of view, science isn’t about the facts of science, but the inquiry into answers,” says Bennett. “People are eager for us to make a difference in the lives of children,” she says. The museum has always been geared toward children’s education, about giving people opportunities to learn at their own pace, and fueling an enthusiasm for learning, says Bennett. There were very few hands-on exhibits when RMSC hired Bennett in the mid-1990’s, but “when we had traveling exhibits, that would add hands-on components,” she says. RMSC now boasts more than 150 interactive exhibits and entire exhibit halls that have hands-on, open-ended-question types of opportunities, such as the simulated paleontological dig in “Expedition Earth.” In building modern exhibits and programming, “we concentrate on ways that we can help stimulate the economy,” Bennett says, “so we make sure that our plans are helping the community grow and become what it can become in the future.” Though RMSC offers a lot from the historical perspective, “the STEM programming strengthens the educational process of our community,” says Andrew Meloni, who has served as chairman of the board of trustees since June 2001 and a museum trustee for 10
years. STEM is an increased emphasis on education in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math, and is one result of the American Competitiveness Initiative set in motion in 2006 under the George W. Bush administration. The STEM Education Coalition includes organizations such as the RMSC, which serve to supplement what schools can offer children in our community in these fields, and in recent decades STEM has shifted the trajectory of RMSC’s exhibitions and programming. Recent examples of STEM-based exhibitions include the “Titanic” exhibit from 2009, which focused on technical elements — as well as the experiences of different classes of people — of the ill-fated ship, and the “Our Body” exhibit, held in 2010, which featured installations of real human bodies with their biological systems laid bare for open exploration. Though the museum has an overt focus on children’s education, Bennett stresses the importance of the institution for adults as well. “When the museum was looking to create itself on East Avenue, the leaders went out and convinced the community that a community without a major museum is like an amnesia patient,” says Bennett. “It helped people understand the importance of it, that this was the university of the common man,” she says. “You can come in at any level.”
philanthropy, then and now “So much of our growth and change has been done through magnificent generosity of individuals in this community who wanted to help us bring a program to fruition,” says Bennett. Today, RMSC includes seven buildings and 14 acres, plus the Cumming Nature Center located south of the thruway near Naples that covers 900 acres. John Carver is the vice chairman of the museum’s board, and serves on every committee except finance. Since 2000, Carver has also been a member of the Technical Advisory Group, a network of volunteers who use their expertise to design and build interactive exhibits based on ideas generated by museum staff. When it comes to TAG projects, “the only thing the museum has to pay for is materials,” Carver says. Like so many people raised in this region, Carver remembers visiting the museum as a child, but he became involved in supporting it through his mother-in-law, Eleanor Eisenhart Morris. In the past, philanthropists such as Carver’s wife’s family donated large sums of money to support the institution and to help it continues on page 16

This Brooklynbased, Saskatchewan-born troubadour is not your cookiecutter alt-country artist. Her unique sound synergizes boisterous electric guitars and the somewhat more soothing folk sounds of mandolin and fiddle. The result is a garagecountry-rock kind of feel; it’s visceral and demonstrative. A deft narrative frame structures her songs, while the music seems to put contemporary and traditional folk aesthetic into perfect balance. Lucinda Williams once called Egge the “folk Nina Simone.” Her seventh, and most recent, album, “Bad Blood,” was produced by Steve Earle and recorded at Levon Helm Studio in Woodstock. — BY DAVID YOCKEL, JR.

Blue suede Britannica [ REVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
The Roc City Pro Jam — the now-weekly open jam that rotates through different venues — has reached its plateau. This is a wonderfully organic event that takes on a professional-player edge without getting too high tone. Anyone can get up and play, but you’ve got to step high to live up to the level of talent present. Each jam is groove- or beat-centric to exalted heights, and within these goalposts it shines supernova bright. But to avoid musicians getting too comfy, some melody needs to be introduced. It could be freeform freak-out, classic Sinatra, Gregorian chant, anything, but it’s structured where there’s an additional challenge and the endings don’t resemble a plane overshooting the runway. Members from local bands like The Goods, AudioInflux, the Teressa Wilcox Band, and Teagan and the Tweeds all got up and played in various configurations on the Skylark stage Tuesday, January 8. My suggestion is to give the recently assembled ensembles a chance to get their assorted ya-ya’s out, rocks off, and grooves on, but throw them a curve ball. Metal mavens? Give them a reggae beat. Long-winded jammers? Assign them a three-minute pop tune. And so on. Remember, it’s all one big
song, and we’re all trying to carve out our own little piece. Things got all shook up Thursday night as Albany’s Lustre Kings hosted the annual Elvis birthday bash at the Dinosaur, where a host of Rochester rockabilly glitterati tore into their equivalent to the great American songbook. Doghouse bassists Brian Williams and Big Mike Woolhaver spanked the bottom end while the Bradley brothers Todd (Hi-Risers, bass) and Mark (saxophone, Essentials, Salamanders) tore it up Memphis style while flipped-southpaw guitar-slinger Bobby Henrie played the part of blue suede Britannica, digging up early Sun Records gems as well as cinematic cuts from the king’s stab at Tinseltown. Saturday night I headed to the California Brew Haus where an all-day hard rock line-up had been pummeling away since 4 in the afternoon. I arrived around 10 p.m. to catch Cosmic Shakedown, a trio from Buffalo. The band was straight-ahead hard rock except for the hooks it centered two songs around. It was reminiscent of the thump and twang skeleton laid forth by Son House, or more recently Jack White or The Black Keys. I dug it, and will dig it again.

Haewa can be better described by what it isn’t. The group jams, but it isn’t a jam band. It circles psychedelic rock, but doesn’t get lost in the ether. It’s a rock ’n’ roll band that doesn’t adhere to merely the one, the four, and the five. It’s odd, but not intentionally obtuse. Haewa is barely out of the gate. It’s a young rock band — roughly two years old — made up of three musicians — all roughly 20 years old — that has a seasoned attitude behind a seasoned sound that belies its age. Since the band formed, music has consumed its members in much the same way a drum set crowded bassist (then-drummer) Ben Chilbert’s dorm room. Chilbert and current drummer Riley Dichairo met at Monroe Community College. “You couldn’t fit anything else in the room,” says Dichairo. “It was the bed, the desk, drums.” 14 CITY JANUARY 16-22, 2013
Chilbert switched to bass and Dichairo started banging on the drums. In searching for a guitarist they joined the ranks of the dateless and desperate and musicians looking for musicians on Craigslist in search of a guitar player. Out popped the weirdos. “I had some really creepy people call me,” Chilbert says. One prospective band mate they didn’t call back immediately was already angry with them. On top of that, he couldn’t play. “He came over and started trying to write right away,” says Chilbert. “I was like, ‘I don‘t even know what kind of music you play.’ It sounded like alternative prog rock…he couldn’t play notes to save his life, just power chords. So I never called him back and he left me a lot of hateful text messages.” There was no love connection. Dichairo says, “It’s worse than dating. “It’s dating on a whole other level.” In the meantime, guitarist Collin Jones
was getting his own dose of rock ’n’ roll reality. He had abandoned studies to go on a national tour playing guitar with an international band. Dates were booked, gelt was guaranteed, the works. And then… “It ended in failure,” says Jones. “It was actually a horrible experience. It
hardly got off the ground and just kind of ended in North Carolina.” By the time he saw Dichairo and Chilbert’s ad on the internet he was still a little gun shy. “We all harp on the freedom of the styles we all play,” says Chilbert. “But we’re all into funk, reggae, psychedelia, electronica. We all have our ground roots, but we respect and enjoy the other genres of music. And I put that in the Craigslist ad and ended it with, ‘We don’t fuck around.’” Jones saw the ad and dug it. And thus began Haewa. Most bands you ask shun the shoehorn, protest the pigeon hole. But any band that plays today is arriving at the dance after it has been underway quite a while. There isn’t anything truly new. However, Haewa attacks this esoterically, not by avoiding assorted influences, but rather by tapping into their spirits. “Instead of specific licks,” says Dichairo, “I think we channel the energy of our influences.” Dichairo in particular embodies this as self-taught musician. “I took one lesson in my whole life,” he says. “And I hated it.” Though Haewa squeezed out “Deadwet
Soundwaves” — a six-song CD — last year, all three members make the distinction between Haewa the live act and Haewa the studio band. “We want to play live music,” Dichairo says. “It’s a living, breathing thing when we play it.” The band has begun recording shows and plans on making them available to its fans. The freedom is apparent in the band’s live shows, where Jones says there is more room for improvisation. A studio recording will only give you the same experience every time. Cilbert finds it difficult to let go. “It’s hard being satisfied with your work,” he says. ‘“To say, ‘OK, I like this.’” Perhaps they have set the bar a little high for themselves. “We want it to be a masterpiece,” Dichairo says. What else does Haewa want? “We want to be everywhere,” Dichairo says. “On the airways, in your home. We want you to come to our home, which is the stage.”
EDM/HOUSE | INFECTED MUSHROOM
ELECTRONICA | ONUINU
Coming to Rochester from Israel by way of L.A., Infected Mushroom is here to infect you — with the beat. Side effects may include unconsciously doing the “Night at the Roxbury” thing. Mushroom has been consistently rated one of the top acts in the EDM scene. As self-proclaimed purveyors of psychedelic trance, the act presents a light-and-sound extravaganza meant to confuse the senses. The du will bring the turntables and no doubt a few Macbooks, and if you don’t come out of it sweaty, then clearly you did not get the point. One Nightclub favorites DJs Richie Salvaggio and Jameson Alexander will be opening the evening up with some mid-tempo electro and house mixes.
Portland, Oregon-based multi-instrumentalist Dorian Duvall, a.k.a. Onuinu (pronounced “On you in you”) calls his genre disco-hop. Maybe that description is too limiting, as his trio creates ambient electro-pop that’s both expansive and beautiful. Singer-guitarist-composer Duvall crafts the lush electronic arrangements that embellish the melodies at the heart of its tunes as band members add live synths and percussion to keep things fresh. Debut CD “Mirror Gazer” has subtle nuances — particularly on trippy single “Ice Palace” — that make me hear something new every time. Onuinu feels like an up-and-comer and music insiders at Portland’s Willamette Week newspaper voted it among the Top 10 best new groups of 2012. With Light Feelings and PK.

grow. Today, philanthropy isn’t only about well-off individuals and families providing funding for specific goals of a community institution, but also about time and expertise donated by individuals with a specific skill set, such as those engineers in TAG who volunteer to actualize hands-on exhibits. Carver’s personal favorite project that he has helped bring to fruition is the interactive replica of Erie Canal Lock 32, which can be found in the “Adventure Zone.” Kids who engage with this exhibit learn about the mechanics of the locks by moving a boat around the display by letting water in and out of the locks, and earn a stamp for their Erie Canal Heritage Trail passport. TAG is in the process of creating a replacement the 10-year-old exhibit, which Carver says requires a great deal of maintenance. But you don’t have to have a specific area of expertise to volunteer at the museum, just a willingness to lend a hand. The current volunteer pool includes the Women’s Council, student interns, board members, and various committees supplements what can be accomplished by the 74 people on museum staff.
looking to the future It’s easy to feel excited when talking with RMSC staff about the institution’s future endeavors, and how they apply to Rochester’s current culture. On January 19, the Riedman Gallery will host a new traveling exhibition, “Race: Are We Really So Different?” which focuses on actual biological, social, and cultural differences, as well as race as a social construct. The aim of the exhibition for RMSC is to educate people about facts, dash myths, and engage the community in an ongoing discussion. The exhibit will continue through April 28. [For information about related events held in Rochester in the coming weeks and months, see the “Facing Race” sidebar.] “We started looking at the exhibit as an opportunity several years ago,” says Bennett. RMSC engaged with Rochester Institute of Technology during preliminary discussions, and together met with Action for a Better Community’s James Norman, “who suggested to us that we work with the RISE Coalition, which allows a number of people of different backgrounds of race and ethnicity to come 16 CITY JANUARY 16-22, 2013
together and work toward a common goal,” says Bennett. That goal is to work to improve issues of disparity in Rochester. “The exhibition is one thing, but we knew that the community needed more than a four-month touring exhibition to solve the issues that we have in this community,” says Bennett. In addition to information and interactive elements, such as guessing a person’s race based on hearing a voice, the museum is setting up opportunities to encourage focused and continued discussion. For example, city and suburban and rural school groups will see the exhibit together, then sit in a room together to have facilitated conversations about what they saw. Not a purely black-and-white issue, the endeavor seeks to engage people of all races and ethnicity in Rochester, and RMSC has reached out to Asian-Pacific organizations and communities, has sought Ganondagan State Historic Site’s involvement, as well as that of various Hispanic organizations. RMSC has also reached out to churches, libraries, and other community spaces to build a lecture and discussion calendar of programming, and plans to create a summit at the conclusion of the exhibition in order to “put a stake in the ground and allow us to say this is how we’re going to make improvements and this is who is going to work on these ideas going forward,” says Bennett. “If we can all put our shoulders to the wheel, we can make progress,” she says. “We know that we’ll be a more creative community, ultimately, if we embrace and celebrate our diversity.” In addition to the “Race” exhibit, RMSC will host one other traveling exhibit in 2013, as well as exhibitions designed and built here in Rochester. Currently, the museum is building an electricity theater that will feature a Tesla coil in it, which is projected to be ready for a June debut, and was funded through the Centennial Gala held in September 2012. In the fall, RMSC will open a construction exhibit, created collaboratively with local construction companies. This exhibit will enable the museum to tell the story of the building of the Golisano Sustainability Building at RIT, as it will feature videos of continues on page 26

POP/PUNK | WALK THE MOON
Relying on the strength of one single from a self-released album is one path to successfully garnering a major-label record deal, but it certainly isn’t the easiest. Then again, most singles aren’t as arresting as “Anna Sun” from Cincinnati quartet Walk the Moon, nor are most videos quite so eye grabbing as the track’s accompanying viral visual aid. The success of the band’s self-titled label debut has propelled it to major supporting gigs across the country, and now to its own headlining shows. Employing an ebullient pop-punk sound, the band’s anthemic guitar riffs and sing-a-long choruses lend an attractive aura to shows, where the band members’ practice of painting their faces has become a tradition. They happen to bring along enough to share with the crowd, too. Pacific Air also plays. Walk the Moon plays Wednesday, January 23, 8 p.m. at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N. Water St. $18-$20.

In your head “Next to Normal” THROUGH FEBRUARY 10 GEVA THEATRE CENTER, 75 WOODBURY BLVD. TICKETS START AT $25 | 232-4382, GEVATHEATRE.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY ERIC REZSNYAK
“Next to Normal,” the Tony and Pulitzer prize-winning musical currently on stage at Geve Thatre, is simply one of the most intense, emotional productions that I have experienced in quite some time. The show — written by Brian Yorkey, with music by Tom Kitt and directed by Scott Schwartz — is not without its (very small) flaws. But it gets so very much brilliantly right, making for a show that is bursting with energy and packed with hard-hitting emotional moments. It is a show that feels very current, very now, and which has an almost universal appeal. If you don’t know the plot of “Next to Normal,” try to avoid any finding out about it. Going in blind allows the show to have maximum impact. In the beginning, it seems like it’s a musical about modern middle-class American life. Mom is frazzled trying to juggle the million facets of everyday existence. Dad feels completely disconnected from his wife, 18 CITY JANUARY 16-22, 2013
and has no idea what she’s saying half the time. Daughter is a compulsive overachiever with some serious social awkwardness. Son is basically absent. But life plods along more or less normally until Mom has an episode that necessitates a visit to the psychopharmacologist, and then it’s better living through chemistry — which maybe isn’t really living at all. Then comes the twist, and the play becomes something much more real, much more revelatory, and much more heartbreaking. Without going into detail, “Next to Normal” is ultimately a play about mental illness and the devastating impact it can have on the afflicted and their families. While the case in the play is extreme, it’s likely that almost any audience member can relate in some way, and the cast and crew do an astonishing job making it all seem very real. By intermission on opening night, there were many patrons with watery eyes walking around the lobby, almost dazed. “Next to Normal” is a rock musical, which means it will appeal to younger audiences. But that shouldn’t scare off fans of traditional musical theater. The live band led by Musical Director Don Kot features guitars, bass, and synth, but the nearly 30 songs are lovely — although perhaps not individually memorable — and fit perfectly into the story at hand.
The music in its own way reflects the family and its crisis, with parts being picked up and carried by certain members of the cast before being passed on to others. At times the songs themselves felt like intimate dances. So much of the show feels effortless — albeit at times emotionally grueling — and that’s why it’s frustrating when it tries too hard to appear “edgy” or “cool.” The opening number is meant to set the tone, introduce the characters and their defining qualities, and stake a claim that this is a different kind of musical. It accomplishes all of that, but it also throws in some lyrics that are intended solely to shock (“We’re the perfect loving family/If they say we’re not then fuck ‘em”). I’m not a prude, but it feels forced compared to 90 percent of the text in the rest of the play, which sounds like things people would actually say to one another. But truthfully, aside from some minor tone issues, there is very little to criticize about this production. The cast is superb, led by Catherine Porter as Diana, the mother and the central figure in the show. Porter performed the role Diana in the Broadway production of “Next to Normal,” and it shows. The control she has over her voice borders on the operatic, as she lets loose, pulls back, jumps octaves — it’s astonishing. Lyndsay Ricketson also turns in a spectacular performance as Natalie, the daughter. Ricketson has a lot to work with in this character — teenaged awkwardness, some very legitimate resentment at her parents, and terror at what is very likely in store for her. She has a firm grasp on all of it, and her singing voice is equally as strong. As Dan, the father, Bob Gaynor has a lovely singing voice, but it was showing obvious strain on opening night. His voice didn’t pierce the way most musical-theater voices do, but he has a warm tone that I could listen to all day. He starts the show fairly stoic, but as the situation builds so does his performance. By the end of the show both he and Porter seemed totally emotionally drained. Cary Tedder plays Gabe, the son, and Jordan Craig is Henry, the teenaged daughter’s love interest. Both are talented young actors with expressive voices. Tedder’s character is fascinating, and likely polarizing. Personally I felt dread every time he came on stage, but that’s a testament to his performance rather than a condemnation of it. Craig is flawless throughout. Both of them, however, are forced to wear some distractingly bad wigs for some reason. Kevin Rigdon’s set is an entire house, minus the plumbing, with a front that opens up to the audience. It’s basically a life-sized Barbie Dream House — which is almost certainly the intention. It also makes smart use of Geva’s trap door and hydraulic lift for some insanely fast mini-set changes.

Mention tango dancing and most people immediately imagine some variation of a woman in red sauntering seductively across stage, whirled in close and dipped low by a darkly sensual partner. This, to most people, is tango. But Fernanda Ghi and her husband Guillermo Merlo, creators of “This is Tango Now,” seek to break this stereotype. For them, it is not enough to simply present what tango is. Their mission is to go beyond defining tango to actually utilizing it as an artistic medium to convey meaning beyond what is inherent in the dance itself. “Tango is a rich and theatrical art form,” Ghi said by phone recently from her Boston home. “There are so many stereotypes about what tango is. We wanted to dispel those by focusing on what tango is doing now. We use tango as a tool to express different stories. This is one of the first times tango has been used in this way.” 22 CITY JANUARY 16-22, 2013
“This is Tango Now: Identidad” was created by Ghi and Merlo along with musician-anthropologist Alfredo Minetti. The music for the production was composed by tango masters Osvaldo Pugliese and Astor Piazzolla. Light, sound, music, puppetry, and Argentine tango are all used to tell the story of a beautiful marionette struggling for freedom from her puppet master. This combination of art forms is virtually unheard of in tango, as is the use of props. Ghi and Merlo both began studying tango
as children growing up in Buenos Aires, Argentina. By 1998, both were in the United States performing in the dance show “Forever Tango,” which won the Tony for Best Choreography that same year. In 1999, the couple created their own company, Tango Dream, which toured successfully for six years, including twomonth stints in Tokyo every year. The Japanese, Ghi says, passionately embrace tango. And their culture’s attitude towards art, she says, is on par with her own. “The Japanese producers would tell audiences to ‘empty your glass of water and let us fill it,’” Ghi says. “In America, too often people think art is to educate them. It’s not about education. Art is an expression. You
both influential in the early formation of tango. The dance originated in lower-class districts of Buenos Aires and Montevideo and was first dubbed “tango” in the 1890’s. In the early 20th century, dancers and orchestras from Buenos Aires traveled to Europe; the first European tango craze took place in Paris. By 1913 it had crossed the Atlantic to New York City. There are many different forms of tango in existence today. The one closest to that originally danced in Argentina and Uruguay is commonly considered to be the most authentic. “This is Tango Now” fuses traditional tango with flamenco and hip-hop. According to Ghi, tango hit its golden period during the 1940’s and 50’s in Argentina, then declined after Juan Peron’s government lost power. Military dictatorships banned public gatherings and economic depression was rife. Rock and roll gained in popularity because it did not require people to gather in the same way. By the 1980’s, however, people were in love with the dance again. The flashy international hit “Tango Argentina” vastly broadened tango’s audiences. “People went crazy,” Ghi says. “And it was hugely profitable. Professionals — doctors and lawyers — quit their jobs to become tango dancers.” Then, the 2000 economic crisis brought tango even more to the social forefront — especially for the younger generation. “It became a full-blown social phenomena again,” Ghi says. “Everyone was doing it. Young people felt free to embrace it for themselves because their parents had not done so during the military rule of their own youth. People were trying to rediscover themselves and tango was a means to do that.” Ghi, Merlo, and the four other dancers in “This is Tango Now: Identidad” may very well reshape your take on tango this weekend. So come with your glass empty and let them fill it up.

SPECIAL EVENT | MOVE TO AMEND PARTY FOR THE PEOPLE Move to Amend Rochester is a group of local citizens working to add an amendment to the United States Constitution that would enable Congress to control political spending. Though endeavors such as these take time, a key element in affecting change is large-scale public education on a subject with which we are not necessarily properly concerned. On Sunday, January 20, Move to Amend will hold “Party for the People,” an educational seminar in the form of a variety show coinciding with the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United v. FEC. The event will take place at Water Street Music Hall (204 N. Water St.), 1-4 p.m., and seeks to connect the influence of big money on our democratic processes to derivative but more tangible issues that impact everyone, such as health care and the food supply. Speakers and performers include Mel Braverman, Assembly Member Mark Johns, BIODANCE, Warren Loeffler (pictured with Missy Pfohl Smith of BIODANCE), Mike Deming, James Caldwell, Emily Good, Bill McKibben (via video), Dr. Ted Brown and Sue Ladwig, Dr. Ted Barrett, Judy Bellow, Armani Tweed, Amanda Ashley, and others.

in short, our government betrayed some of the most important concepts that defined America, that emphasized the exceptionalism that the “Zero Dark Thirty” conservatives constantly bray about. (R), DIRECTED BY KATHRYN BIGELOW Based on events from recent history and NOW PLAYING with characters based on real people, the film documents the decade-long search for the man Despite all the praise heaped upon “Zero Dark Bush initially wanted “dead or alive,” but later Thirty” by the usual heapers, the movie should declared irrelevant. To establish the motivation really awaken audiences to the moral failure for its long story, it begins with an aural montage of an American foreign policy created by the of voices from the tragedy of the World Trade administration of George W. Bush. We all grew Center, then moves through time and space to up in a nation that did not torture prisoners, a CIA base in the Middle East, where an agent, kidnap people off the streets, send prisoners to Dan (Jason Clarke), conducts a distressing other countries to be tortured by foreign experts, interrogation of a shackled al-Qaeda prisoner, arrest suspects without charges, refuse them legal assistance, and imprison them indefinitely; which goes on for some days and many movie minutes. He beats the man, denies him food, drink, and sleep, locks him in a small box, and of course, employs that favorite technique, waterboarding. Although halfheartedly neutral in its approach, the script inclines toward justification of all those methods that the practitioners, with a nice sense of Jessica Chastain in “Zero Dark Thirty.” PHOTO COURTESY SONY PICTURES

euphemism, called “enhanced interrogation,” and most of us call torture. The main character, a CIA agent known only as Maya (Jessica Chastain), exhibits some faint distaste at her first view of the beatings, but mostly remains impassive throughout; Dan, on the other hand, carries out his job with coldblooded and ruthless detachment. At one point in a meeting of senior agents, someone sorrowfully mentions that after all the negative publicity about Abu Ghraib and Guantánamo Bay, they must employ other methods of obtaining information. To her credit, Maya pursues her own investigation by other means, depending upon different kinds of questioning, following a complicated thread of al-Qaeda connections and familial relationships to determine exactly how Obama bin Laden communicates with his men. She also combines human intelligence — undercover observers and agents — with the agency’s considerable arsenal of technology, including satellites, electronic monitoring, and telephone intercepts; as she works through the careful examination of evidence, the application of logical analysis, and some leaps of imagination, her search becomes a kind of detective story. Throughout the many years of her investigation, she encounters a number of obstacles, including suicide bombings, assassination attempts, and postings to other parts of the world. Her most difficult problems, however, occur within the Agency itself, where her supervisors refuse to accept her interpretation of

events and the information she gathers. She works to convince them of her conclusions about Osama bin Laden’s hideout in Pakistan, then harasses and hectors them for months before the head of the Agency and, presumably, the president himself sign off on the mission to attack his compound. The movie’s success depends mostly on its procedural content, the depiction of the nuts and bolts of espionage and the methods by which Maya and her colleagues track down their quarry. Like “Argo,” another film about a complicated, dangerous Middle Eastern mission, “Zero Dark Thirty” sustains a terrific tension even though the audience knows the outcome. The long sequence showing the attack of the Navy SEALS on Osama bin Laden’s compound, much of it filmed through night vision goggles, also features another euphemism, collateral damage, as the SEALS kill some women and children in their search through the buildings. Despite its gritty authenticity in style and subject, it’s hard to believe that a relatively lowlevel agent like Maya could browbeat her bosses relentlessly and obnoxiously, especially considering the Agency’s history as a haven for Ivy Leaguers drunk on patriotism. Jessica Chastain appears handcuffed by a script that provides almost no context for her character and actions; she exhibits very little emotion, maintaining a constant deadpan in just about every situation. Much of her performance matches the laborious literalness of the director’s approach, a long slog through some exciting history.
Noir is a genre that’s tough to get right, particularly in our self-consciously referential age. Don’t embrace the genre fully, and it’s just a run-of-the-mill thriller featuring a bunch of nattily dressed people with a fondness for tommy guns; go too far the other direction, and it quickly turns into exaggerated parody (supposing, of course, that that’s not precisely what you’re aiming for, see: “Sin City). “Gangster Squad,” from director Ruben Fleischer (best known for the horrorcomedy “Zombieland”) manages to land squarely in the middle of the spectrum, coming across like the brain-damaged lovechild of “L.A. Confidential” and “The Untouchables”. It’s a film torn about which direction it wants to head, as Fleischer constantly seems to be fighting his instinct to turn the film into a live-action cartoon á la Warren Beatty’s “Dick Tracy.” In late 1940’s Los Angeles, ruthless mobster Mickey Cohen (a gleefully over-the-top Sean Penn) runs the town, building an empire funded largely through

gambling, prostitution and drugs. His money and power has given him the means to buy off nearly every member of the justice and law-enforcement systems, allowing him to conduct his illegal business dealings with impunity. But one seemingly incorruptible chief of police (played by living cartoon character, Nick Nolte), refuses to stand idly by as he loses his city to the criminal element. He assigns his most trusted and loyal man, Sgt. John O’Mara (Josh Brolin), the task of putting together a covert force of lawmen to engage in guerrilla warfare against Cohen in the hopes of taking apart his operations, piece by piece. Together they will be known as... (dun dun dun!) The Gangster Squad! The screenplay, credited to Will Beall, based (one assumes extremely loosely) on the book by Paul Lieberman, provides each of the five men who join the cause only one or two defining attributes. There’s Ryan Gosling’s Sgt. Jerry Wooters, supposedly a smooth-talking ladies’ man, though that characterization is halfhearted at best, since we see him fall in love with the first woman he sets eyes on. Next is Officer Coleman Harris (Anthony Mackie), a black cop sick of the toll drugs are taking on his neighborhood. Then there’s Officer Max Kennard (Robert Patrick), the old-timer of the bunch and an Old West gunslinger type. He brings along an inexperienced partner, Navidad Ramirez (Michael Peña), who is Mexican and…uh...Mexican. Rounding out the group is Officer Conway Keeler (the always welcome Giovanni Ribisi), a family man and the techie of the team. The actors do what they can with the material they’re given, but there’s only so much to be done with such severely underwritten roles. Hardly any of the men get their one defining hero moment, which is necessary for these types of characters to make any sort of impression. Brolin pulls
off O’Mara’s bullheaded determination to succeed at any cost and he feels the most at home of any of the actors in the macho, pulpy world they’re thrown into. Bucking at least one of the conventions of the genre, Brolin’s pregnant wife isn’t relegated to nagging her husband to give up on his mission and stay home with his family. She’s actually given the opportunity to take a slightly more active role in the proceedings, acting as adviser to her husband, hand-selecting the officers he should approach to join his squad. Emma Stone, playing Cohen’s girlfriend, Grace Faraday (whom Gosling falls for), is what I suppose passes for the femme fatale of this story, but she’s lacking the dangerous element that define the most memorable characters of the archetype. She and Gosling have the misfortune of possessing mannerisms and personalities that feel decidedly contemporary, making them stick out in the period setting. But they do look great. In fact, the costuming and production design is the one thing “Gangster Squad” gets right, for the most part. Fleischer’s direction tosses in all the modern filmmaking gimmicks: slowmotion, freeze-frames, long tracking shots, and a digitized car chase that looks great, but is rendered nearly incomprehensible through some shoddy editing. He also can’t resist piling on the gore: chopped-off hands, bodies burned and ripped in half, even a drill to the head. It’s as if he knew the script wasn’t there, so he had to distract his audience with as much flash as his budget would afford him. It all adds up to the feeling that everyone involved was content to go through the motions, settling for playing dress up in fancy clothes. If the outside is as sleek and pretty as possible, maybe no one will notice that it’s utterly hollow on the inside.

The exhibit’s aim is “stimulating Rochester’s inventive and entrepreneurial spirit, celebrating what made Rochester Rochester, and stimulating the next generation of inventors and entrepreneurs,” says Bennett. The museum is currently working through the process of fundraising, and has partnered with RIT’s Center for Innovation and O’Connell Electric on exploring some inventing strategies. The exhibit will feature eight to nine display areas which may focus on optical, electrical, or mechanical inventions. “We want to teach people that invention is something that can be learned — it’s not simply up to geniuses to invent, that it’s a process that can be learned,” says Bennett. “And you can improve all sorts of things in your life by inventing solutions. We want people to understand that that’s an option you have, to think deeply and contribute,” she says.

26 CITY JANUARY 16-22, 2013
Many RMSC staff members gushed about the upcoming renovation to the campus, which will link the main museum building with the planetarium. This “Gateway Building” will be a mostly glass construction, serving as the new main entrance and front desk to both buildings, sheltering visitors who wish to travel between buildings from Rochester’s inclement weather. RMSC is also planning an upgrade for the planetarium, which involves revamping the decades-old equipment to make programming more engaging to visitors, says board member Meloni. These plans are still in their infancy, however, and like all of the renovations, are contingent upon an ambitious capital campaign. RMSC will also embark on a program that applies the material from the successful summer camps and educational school-break programming to distance-learning activities. Other than school groups, the largest percentage of attendees to the RMSC are parents with kids, says Carver. Next year, RMSC is planning an initiative to have volunteers on hand to engage with visitors in an informal way, asking them questions about an exhibit, and providing information. The upcoming programs, formal and informal alike, reflect the spirit of the Rochester Museum and Science Center’s long history of seeking to assist the Rochester community in connecting with its past, engaging with its present, and developing its future.
facing “race” From January 19 through April 28, RMSC will host a traveling exhibit, “RACE: Are We Really So Different?” which looks at the story of race from biological, cultural, and historical points of view. The exhibit will present the everyday experiences of race, the science of human variation, and the history of the idea of race, and will include hands-on activities for all ages, a 3-D animation of our molecular selves, a scanner which will enable visitors to add their skin tone to a mosaic of other visitors’ scans, and a challenge to match voices with the faces of people of different races. The exhibit is included in museum admission ($11-$13, free to kids under age 3 and museum members). RMSC is located at 657 East Ave. and is open Monday-Saturday 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m.-5 p.m., with extended hours until 9 p.m. on select Thursdays (January 31, February 14 & 28, March 14 & 28, and April 25). In the coming weeks and months, the Rochester community will be presented with many opportunities to have crucial continued conversations with one another about race relations in our home city at a variety of forums. A number of community dialogues, films, musical performances, and other events will be held at libraries and community centers. The following are a few highlights to represent the types of events that will take place. For a complete schedule of related events, visit faceraceroc.org, or search “race” at our online calendar at rochestercitynewspaper.com. Friday, January 18, 7-9 p.m.: Film: “Color Adjustment” The Baobab Cultural Center (728 University Ave.).

Wonderful in the Wedge
896 South Avenue
The South Wedge is a vibrant and exciting neighborhood, filled with award-winning bistros, shops, and restaurants, home to many young artists and entrepreneurs who are lovingly restoring its charming old houses. Consider the two story house with the large Victorian porch at 896 South Avenue. Historic details on the porch, windows and interior woodwork combine with recent renovations to provide character and the conveniences and space to suit modern needs. From the wraparound porch, one enters a small hall with a coat rack, then a room that is half of a double parlor and functions as an entrance foyer but could also serve as an office. Tall windows provide lots of light here and in the other half of the parlor. Refinished hardwood floors and handsome woodwork are found in both rooms. The first floor also features a bedroom suite, with a nice-sized bedroom and a new adjoining bath/ laundry room, perfect for visitors, a teen who wants a private space, or for a housemate. The eat-in kitchen combines the best of the old with the new—a tin ceiling and old cabinetry seamlessly join with the new. The formal dining room affords plenty of space and has a large bay window with a big window seat perfect for a cozy reading nook or a collection of houseplants. Upstairs is another bedroom suite, a large front bedroom, a smaller middle room with a linen closet that could be a nursery, dressing

room or office, and a new bathroom. A stained glass window lights the stairway. There is a full basement and a small, partly fenced backyard just right for relaxing but not requiring a lot of work for a busy owner. The detached two-car garage and wide driveway provide plenty of parking. At 1650 square feet, this charming house is perfect for a young family, a busy professional who needs an easy commute, or a couple who are downsizing and looking for convenient city living. The roof and utilities were replaced in 2005 and all appliances stay with the house. Close to Highland Hospital and Highland Park, an easy bike ride to Strong Hospital and the University of Rochester, it also qualifies for a University of Rochester employee housing grant, making the $124,900 asking price even more affordable. This neighborhood is handy to so many urban delights that it epitomizes what city living can offer, with plenty of public transport and a conveniently walkable environment.

FORECLOSURE OF TAX LIENS BY THE CITY OF ROCHESTER STATE OF NEW YORK SUPREME COURT COUNTY OF MONROE
IN THE MATTER OF THE FORECLOSURE OF TAX LIENS PURSUANT TO TITLE 4 OF PART E OF ARTICLE IX OF THE CHARTER OF THE CITY OF ROCHESTER.
LIST OF DELINQUENT TAXES AS OF JULY 1, 2012 PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that on December 12, 2012, the Corporation Counsel of the City of Rochester filed in the office of the Monroe County Clerk a list of parcels of property on which the City of Rochester holds a lien for taxes, assessments, fees or other charges which is at least one year old and which the City of Rochester intends to foreclose by an action in rem pursuant to Title 4 of Part E of Article IX of the Charter of the City of Rochester. A copy of that list was published on December 12, 2012. The foreclosure list contains as to each such parcel: 1. The tax account number and address; 2. The name of the last known owner; 3. The amount of each tax lien, except for a $155.00 charge which has been added to each tax lien pursuant to Section 9-123(A)(3)of the City Charter but which is not reflected on the printed list. All persons having an interest in the real property described in the foreclosure list are hereby notified that the filing of the list constitutes the commencement by the City of Rochester of an action in the Supreme Court, Monroe County, to foreclose the tax liens therein described by an action in rem and that the list constitutes a notice of pendency of action and a complaint by the City of Rochester against each parcel of land therein described to enforce the satisfaction of such tax liens. This action is brought against the real property only. No personal judgment will be entered in this action for the delinquent taxes, assessments, fees or other charges.
A copy of the foreclosure list has been filed in the office of the City Treasurer and will remain open for public inspection up to and including February 19, 2013, which is the redemption deadline date. Any person may on or before that date redeem any parcel on the foreclosure list by paying to the City Treasurer the amount of all delinquent taxes, assessments, fees and other charges stated on the foreclosure list, plus the $155.00 charge referred to above, plus accrued interest and late payment charges. Any person having any interest in any parcel on the foreclosure list may, at any time up to the redemption deadline date, serve a verified notice of interest or an answer upon the Corporation Counsel setting forth in detail the nature and amount of his interest or any defense or objection to the foreclosure. The notice of interest or answer must also be filed in the office of the Monroe County Clerk. Where a valid notice of interest is served, the parcel will be held for a foreclosure auction pursuant to Section 9-143 of the City Charter. Any person who fails to redeem or to serve a notice of interest or an answer by the redemption deadline date shall be barred thereafter from asserting his interest in the pending foreclosure action, and judgment in foreclosure may be granted without regard for, and in extinguishment of, the interest of any such person.
