Dump Common Core, embrace trades
Stop thinking everyone needs to go to college; it is a turnoff to those who do not identify with that path. Instead, open your minds to the fact that we will continue to need trades people and such.

The value of investing in bike infrastructure
I think it’s great that our infrastructure is becoming more bicycle friendly. However, there aren’t enough bicycle commuters to justify such expenditures. I wonder what’s being done, from an anti-poverty perspective, to help the ablebodied jobless? We need some kind of affirmative action that would give priority to someone able to bike to work. What good are bike lanes that are rarely used? MIKE BRUTON
To those who suggest that bike infrastructure improvement expenditures are not justified by bicycle traffic volume: This is usually the case in regions both within North America and worldwide which are beginning to establish multimodal transportation support.
The volume of pioneers does not justify the investment, but invariably, the pioneers PLUS the investment in infrastructure result in a rapid and selfreinforcing increase of bike and pedestrian traffic. This not only reduces congestion, it also makes affected neighborhoods more livable and desirable for business. The economic not to mention the social benefit to the streets which have bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure can be shown to greatly exceed the expenditure. SCOTT WAGNER
I am an avid city cyclist and have no problem navigating across a street. I do however have problems with busy roads with no shoulder. My suggestion for the city would be to create more Park and Ride locations that are bike-lane accessible. This would give recreational riders along with commuters from the burbs more enjoyable access to city biking. It really is easy and fun to bike through the city! MARKOPOLO
The challenge with increasing bike lanes and lane widths in general is that this costs far more money, planning, time, and the agreement of other road users then the traffic signal cyclist-sensing cameras do (News, January 6). Far more. I agree that when streets are redone, any extra lane width should be considered. But expect strong resistance from landowners. To get new riders to consider using their bikes as transportation (and not just recreation) often requires a lot of “activation energy” in the sense of making these less-comfortable-in-traffic riders be at ease and have a sense of safety. These cameras are a low-cost step in that direction. But by no means the last step. ANDREW STEWART

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
Racist art has no place on a children’s carousel I can’t for the life of me understand why it took officials this long to agree to remove the offensive depiction of black children from the carousel at Ontario Beach Park. Nor can I understand why it took any of us so long to notice the carousel panel and recognize its offensiveness. The panel, which is one of several mounted high up on the carousel’s exterior frame, shows two black children, with exaggerated facial features, being frightened by a rooster. That kind of thing used to be common in this country: using African Americans as objects of humor in art and in advertising. The art and ads were designed to ridicule: to get us to laugh at African Americans by portraying them as stupid, weak, inferior. Last week, thanks to activists’ continuing efforts and the mayor’s request, County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo reversed a decision made by her predecessor and said the panel can come down – if the city pays for it and the Preservation Board approves. The carousel itself is a rare, historic one, built by the Dentzel company and installed at the beach in 1905 – horses, ostriches, cats, pigs, 52 animals in all. It’s a designated city landmark, so the Rochester Preservation Board would have to approve any change and anything that would be put up in its place. That shouldn’t be a hard decision. Landmark Society Executive Director Wayne Goodman notes that many historic structures have had additions and other alternations. Under Rochester’s preservation legislation, the alterations have to be for a good reason, and they have to be compatible with the historic and architectural nature of the structure. But landmarks can be altered. And removing a painted panel that mocks African Americans is a darned good reason. The Landmark Society hasn’t taken a position on the panel’s removal, but, Goodman says, “The carousel can certainly be preserved with a good amount of integrity,” whether the panel stays or goes. Because the carousel is in Ontario Beach Park – which the city owns but the county operates – the county also has to approve the panel’s removal, and former County Executive Maggie Brooks had said that the panel should be left in place, with some sort of panel nearby explaining its history. That’s ridiculous. The carousel isn’t a museum. Few people would bother to read the explanatory script, and a picture mocking African Americans

Landmarks can be altered. And removing a painted panel that mocks African Americans is a darned good reason to do it. would continue to hang in public view, sanctioned by local government. Ah, but if we remove the panel, doesn’t that remove an important piece of American history? Don’t we need to be reminded about this country’s racism? Sure we do. But we ought to weigh that need against two other factors: The panel insults African Americans. And it puts a despicable stereotype in front of children of all races. Children are the carousel’s principal users. And children learn early, not only from their parents and teachers but also from the media, from advertising, from depictions of people – in movies, in books, in toys, on carousels…. This panel teaches them a terrible lesson. We can easily let carousel patrons know about the panel without displaying it as a form of entertainment. Well before the discussion about the panel arose, the county had asked the Landmark Society to develop a series of informative panels about the carousel’s history, to commemorate its 110th anniversary. That work is continuing, and the information could include a discussion of the missing panel and its removal. And if the illustration is considered artistically, socially, or historically important, it can be moved to a museum. Frankly, we all ought to be ashamed that it took a Democrat and Chronicle blogger to draw attention to the panel. It’s been hanging there in plain sight since 1905. And we ought to be ashamed that it took months of persistence by Howard Eagle and other activists to get public officials to act. rochestercitynewspaper.com

Police choose camera vendor
MES Lawmen of Lanham, Maryland, is the vendor chosen to provide body cameras to the Rochester Police Department, pending the approval of City Council. The RPD hopes to start phasing-in the cameras in June.
New owners found for soccer stadium The City of Rochester intends to turn management of the city’s soccer stadium over to a new firm created by local residents David and Wendy Dworkin, who are part owners of the National Basketball Association’s Sacramento Kings. The agreement is subject to City Council approval. The city’s deal with the stadium’s previous management was terminated over an unpaid debt.
Leighton homicide victims named The Rochester Police Department says that it is chasing multiple leads to solve a quadruple homicide that happened earlier this month on Leighton Avenue. The call started as a fire and then the bodies were found inside. The victims are: Michael Royal, 28; Jennifer Leasure, 29; Michael Adams, 45; and Lachelle Powell, 22.
Cuomo sets long to-do list
Governor Andrew Cuomo gave a combination State of the State and budget address that delivered a shotgun blast of proposals, touching on everything from tourism promotions to criminal justice reforms. He promised $100 billion in infrastructure investment over the next five years, including $22 billion for Upstate projects. He also proposed increasing the state’s Environmental Protection Fund to $300 million and called for an increase in the minimum wage to $15 an hour.
Dinolfo proposes integrity office
True to her campaign promise, County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo introduced legislation to create a county Public Integrity Office. The office would be able to examine county operations and finances, including those of individual county departments; investigate citizen concerns about county government; and make recommendations to improve county operations and finances. A public hearing and vote on the legislation will most likely take place at the March 8 County Legislature meeting.

Clerk appointment is up to Cuomo Monroe County doesn’t have a county clerk and the only person who can do anything about it is Governor Andrew Cuomo. The former clerk, Republican Cheryl Dinolfo, had to give up the seat when she became county executive in January. And under state law, the governor is responsible for appointing a temporary clerk to serve until the end of the year. The appointment is not subject to approval by the State Legislature. An election will be held in November and the winner of that contest will take office in January 2017.

One source says that the governor plans to make an appointment in the next couple of months. And the rumor is that he could appoint a Democrat. Irondequoit Supervisor Adam Bello, who’s close to Assembly Majority Leader Joe Morelle and is considered a rising star in the party, is frequently mentioned as a possible choice. Jamie Romeo, chair of the Monroe County Democratic Committee, says that it wouldn’t be unusual for the governor to make the appointment later in the year, after the Legislature approves a state budget. During his time as governor, Republican George Pataki
appointed two acting Monroe County clerks, and he made both appointments in April. He tapped Maggie Brooks to fill the seat in 1997, and then appointed Dinolfo in 2004, after Brooks was elected county executive. The clerk seat isn’t the only Monroe County vacancy awaiting action from Cuomo. In the 2015 elections, Republican James Piampiano, who was serving as a county court justice, was elected to a state Supreme Court seat. Under state law, the governor must appoint a replacement, though the State Senate has to approve his selection.

The Lofts at Gold Street would be two student-housing complexes: one on Mt. Hope and the other on nearby Gold Street. The buildings would have 24 two-bedroom units and 16 four-bedroom units. And the Mt. Hope building would have 3,160 square feet of retail space.

More places to live, eat in the neighborhoods More entertainment and housing options are coming to Rochester’s neighborhoods if current proposals go through. Neighborhood of the Arts may get a Mexican restaurant and there’s a proposal to convert the Cobblestone School in NOTA to housing. And there’s a plan for student housing on Mt. Hope Avenue. Developer Duncan Frame plans to build a five-story student housing complex with some retail space on Mt. Hope. The former Empire Comics at 1176 Mt. Hope would be torn down. A second, residential-only complex for students would be built nearby on Gold Street. This building would be four stories high. Frame did not respond to requests for comment, but plans submitted to the City of Rochester show that together, the buildings would have 24 two-bedroom units and 16 four- bedroom units. And the Mt. Hope building would have 3,160 square feet of retail space. Frame met with area residents earlier this week to discuss the project, which is called “The Lofts at Gold Street.” Dan Hurley, president of the Upper Mt. Hope Neighborhood Association, says that he’s glad that there is a plan to develop that section of Mt. Hope, but cautious to
see how the project unfolds and the impact it would have on parking and traffic — two things that the neighborhood already struggles with. A second housing project is in the works for 10 Prince Street in the Neighborhood of the Arts. A developer plans to convert the former Cobblestone School into 12 apartments. The private school closed in June 2015 due to a lack of funds. This project has flown under the radar so far; the neighborhood association has little information on it. The applicant is listed with the city as Ray Trotta, who is the design-program manager for the Holland Trotta Project, according to LinkedIn. He could not be reached for comment. The city’s Zoning Board will consider granting a required variance for the project at its meeting on Thursday, January 21, in City Council chambers at City Hall, 30 Church Street. The meeting starts at 9:30 a.m., but the apartment application is the last on the agenda. Neighborhood of the Arts has another interesting project just getting off the ground. Developer Frank Imburgia and restauranteur Josh Miles plan to build a two-story Mexican restaurant on the corner of Norwood Street and Anderson Avenue. Evan Lowenstein, president of the

NOTA Neighborhood Association, says that, so far, the neighborhood appears to support the project. The association is disseminating information about the proposed restaurant to NOTA residents, he says, and soliciting feedback. The developer is waiting on neighborhood input, Lowenstein says, before submitting plans to the city. The restaurant would only be open for dinner hours, according to the neighborhood association, with the possibility of lunch service on the weekends. Food would be served through 10 p.m. or 11 p.m. on weekdays, but the bar would stay open until 2 a.m. On weekends, the association says, the plan is for everything to stay open until 2 a.m.
Stroke forces Lownegard out After only days on the job, Daniel Lowengard, interim superintendent of the Rochester City School District, was forced to resign due to a health crisis. Lowengard suffered a stroke during a January 7 meeting with teachers and was hospitalized. The Rochester school board has offered Chief of Staff Linda Cimusz, who was hired by Lowengard, the interim position. “She has served urban New York schools as a teacher, principal, and district-level administrator overseeing virtually every aspect of instruction and school operation,” says Van White, president of the Rochester school board. Cimusz began her career in Syracuse where she was once deputy superintendent. During the mid 1990’s, Cimusz worked for the Texas Education Agency. As executive deputy commissioner, she led the state’s efforts in teacher preparation, certification, and assessment. More recently, Cimusz was chief academic officer for Buffalo’s public schools where she led that district’s state receivership program for persistently failing schools. Lowengard joined the district on January 1 under challenging circumstances. After a tumultuous relationship with the Rochester school board, former Superintendent Bolgen Vargas stepped down effective December 31, 2015. Lowengard, who retired as superintendent of the Syracuse school district, was expected to oversee Rochester’s schools for about six months until a permanent superintendent is hired.

Guns on campus PUBLIC SAFETY | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO
Rochester Institute of Technology’s announcement late last year that some of its security officers will have access to firearms raised a few eyebrows. Maybe that’s because college campuses, despite some recent eruptions of violence, still conjure up tranquil images of students hunkered down in libraries. The thought of guns on campuses makes many people shudder. But RIT’s decision is hardly a milestone in public safety; the college is part of a trend. The horrific mass shooting at Virginia Tech in April of 2007, which left 32 people dead, forever changed administrators’ attitudes about security on the country’s college campuses. Many colleges and universities throughout New York and the nation reevaluated their public safety policies. Most beefed up their security staff, often transitioning from private firms to police academy-trained forces. And many of their officers carry firearms, among other weapons. The Atlantic recently cited a US Justice Department report showing that the overwhelming majority of public colleges and universities — 92 percent — have sworn and armed campus officers. And about 40 percent of private schools have similarly equipped security forces. Sometime this year, RIT will join their ranks and train some of its public safety officers on the use of firearms, though they won’t carry them, says RIT
spokesperson Bob Finnerty. Currently, they don’t even carry stun guns. “The only time the firearms will come out is when there is an active shooter,” Finnerty says. RIT officials made the decision based on their review of FBI data showing that 120 people were victims of gun violence on college campuses between 2000 and 2013, he says. But once an active shooter was confronted by a trained and armed officer, he says, no more innocent people were killed. Cutting emergency response time was another factor in the decision, Finnerty says. Though the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office and the State Police would respond to an emergency at RIT involving a shooter, he says, outside agencies are not as familiar with the campus as the school’s security staff, especially if it’s at night or during an event. “It’s a big place,” Finnerty says. “This is a mini city. On any given day there are over 20,000 people here.” And RIT’s security guards are required to learn American Sign Language, since the National Technical Institute for the Deaf is one of the school’s colleges, serving a sizable population of deaf and hard of hearing individuals. Having the right communications skills is imperative in an emergency, Finnerty says.
READ CITY ONLINE EVERY WEEK AT RIT was quick to point to the State
University of New York’s public safety measures when it announced its change in protocol. On the heels of the Virginia Tech shooting, SUNY’s chancellor had all of the SUNY colleges, community colleges, and universities conduct a thorough review of their violence and emergency preparedness policies and procedures, says Jason Maitland, director of campus security at Finger Lakes Community College. The directive led to a transition from a mishmash of security forces of varying skills and training to standardized campus peace officers. The State Department of Criminal Justice Services sets the officers’ training guidelines, Maitland says, and for the most part, the campus officers have the same training and arrest powers as municipal police officers. “A peace officer only has jurisdiction on the college campuses,” he says. “And there are some limitations when it comes to search warrants.” Maitland says that FLCC’s officers went through reality-based training using simulations of emergency situations. “It’s pretty extensive and stressful,” he says. Firearms carried by Monroe Community College’s peace officers are visible in holsters at officers’ sides. And officers also carry batons and pepper spray. The issuing of firearms was not done in isolation, SUNY officials say. Gregory Sammons, vice president for student affairs at Alfred State, says that his school conducts annual emergency drills to test the ability of faculty, staff, and students to follow procedures and find shelter. If Alfred had a real emergency involving a shooter, Sammons says, a mass notification system called RAVE Alert would be activated involving text messages, phones, e-mail blasts, digital signs, and outdoor warning sirens. FLCC’s Maitland says that the decision
by senior officials to equip peace officers with firearms was not made in a vacuum, either. Students, staff, and faculty participated in a variety of ways, he says, over a long period of time. MCC reported a similar process, and RIT’s Finnerty says that parents responded positively to the decision to make guns available to officers. Maitland says that there is increased awareness that colleges and universities are often the center of many communities and activities. “We’re open to a lot of people who come and go freely,” he says. SUNY Geneseo’s Robert Bonfiglio, vice president for student and campus
life, says that the college’s peace officers were armed in 2007 without controversy. “When the police were armed, the reaction from the students and parents was ‘We understand,’ and it hasn’t been a topic of discussion here,” he says. But not all higher education institutions in the Rochester region have armed their security staff. And not everyone agrees that it’s a good idea, either. Nazareth College’s security officers, for example, do not carry or have access to firearms. Officials there say they just don’t see a need. And data cited in the Atlantic article suggests that college campuses are muscling up at a time when the violent crime rate on college campuses is dropping. Whether that’s a result of increased security measures is unclear. Some critics say that arming campus officers could eventually lead to students and faculty carrying guns on campuses. At the moment, New York State law forbids that, with few exceptions. “Campus carry” bills were introduced in 15 states in 2015, according to the Campaign to Keep Guns Off Campus, and a bill was signed in Texas. A fierce fight to allow guns on college and university campuses is currently under way in Florida. Leah Gunn Barrett, executive director of New Yorkers Against Gun Violence, says that she doesn’t expect legislation like this to get traction in New York. “We’re not Texas,” she says. “But it’s an alarming trend.” Mixing college students, high alcohol consumption, and guns is dangerous, she says. And she notes that the Campaign to Keep Guns off Campus cites suicide as the second leading cause of death for collegeage young adults. On average, 1,100 college students commit suicide each year, and suicide attempts involving guns in general are fatal about 90 percent of the time. Barrett says that she understands why some people believe that arming campus security officers may provide extra protection for students in rare instances. But she says that she’s skeptical of the argument that armed officers will be able to stop shooters. Even if they are trained, she says, there’s no guarantee that they’re going to be successful, and “bringing more guns into the mix is not good.”

Information: Melissa Wilson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
a talk by Naomi Klein, author of “This Changes Everything,” at 4 p.m. on Sunday, January 24.
From the author of “The Shock Doctrine” comes a view of climate change that is more about the human tendency to deny reality when it threatens the status quo. Conservative think tanks and lobby groups, in Klein’s view, have created confusion and stalled political action resembling the lead up to the worst civil upheavals of the last century. The event will be held at Finger Lakes Community College, 3325 Marvin Sands Drive. Tickets are $15, http://gmeforum. org/. Student admission is free.
The Cub Room is going for upscale, old-school New York City charm, with an extensive drinks menu that features (left) the Honey Rider. On the menu are dishes like (middle) the Kurobuta pork chop, and (right) the burrata. PHOTOS BY MARK CHAMBERLIN
Swillburg meets the city The Cub Room 739 SOUTH CLINTON AVENUE MONDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY: 11:30 A.M. TO 11 P.M.; THURSDAY AND FRIDAY: 11:30 A.M. TO MIDNIGHT; SATURDAY: 5 P.M. TO MIDNIGHT; SUNDAY: 11:30 A.M. TO 5 P.M. 363-5694; THECUBROOMROC.COM [ REVIEW ] BY CHRIS LINDSTROM
The growth that the South Wedge has seen in the last few years hasn’t slowed down; in fact that momentum has carried over to the bordering Swillburg neighborhood. The new interest has brought the opening of three businesses each trying to establish their identity in this transitioning area: The Playhouse/Swillburger, and the parking-lotsharing duo of McCann’s Local Meats and The Cub Room. Greg and Jodi Johnson, The Cub Room’s owners, are trying to bring an old school New York City V.I.P. aesthetic to the Edge of the Wedge complex near the corner of South Clinton and Gregory. The Stork Club — that prestigious Manhattan night club — is one of the inspirations, and after looking at some photos, I can see how The Cub Room’s high backed booths and major amounts of wood play into that vibe. The typical design
accoutrements of a modern reclaimed space are here, including exposed beams and piping, brick wall accents, and Edison bulbs galore. Despite the active bar area, the restaurant’s feel is more upscale date night than a party scene, especially with the dim lighting and cozy seating arrangement. The drink menu is extensive, and features a full beer, wine, and cocktail list as well as a long offering of liquors by the glass. On the cocktail side of things, my wife enjoyed the warm apple pie-like flavors from the applejack and allspice dram in the Honey Rider ($10). The Butcher Is In ($10) was a potent but slightly too sweet combination of reposado tequila, añejo mezcal, bitters, and simple syrup. The Cub Room has a relatively short beer list, but I was able to pick out the Super Fresh from Peak Organic Brewing ($6), a fascinating double pilsner style beer that straddled the line between a lighter brew and a more resinous IPA. The Cub Room’s menu isn’t mind-blowing or particularly original, but I appreciated the limited use of ingredients and the seasonal twists to the dishes that remain staples over time. A prime example of that is the Kurobuta pork chop ($30) which is currently served with an apple mostarda, roasted Brussels sprouts, and a chestnut purée. Each element made the dish warm and comforting, and the flavors balanced nicely. The fatty ribeye-like chop
came out at a beautiful just-under-medium temperature, but it did lack an aggressive crust. The roasted vegetables on that dish, and on the otherwise successful chickpea cakes entree ($18), were inconsistent, leaving me confused about the end goal. On the other hand, the combination of artichokes, escarole, and olives that came along with the seared scallops ($28) were spot on. The scallops themselves had good color, but the sear was inconsistent, which led to some odd exterior textures that didn’t work. It was a tasty dish overall, but there were some whole segments of Meyer lemon left on top of the vegetables that were unpleasant. House-made tagliatelle bolognese ($20) was served nicely al dente but the consistency of the dish didn’t work. The combination of ground veal, pork, chicken, and pancetta in the overly creamy sauce ended up dry and grainy. This was also an occasion when the flavor of the meats combined added up to something less than they would have been individually. The appetizers were where The Cub Room made a strong impression. The stuffed peppers special ($12 for three peppers) consisted of small roasted red peppers coated in a bright and addictive saffron tomato sauce. Ground pork with pine nuts, onions, and garlic added some needed texture and light nuttiness. A simple dish, but very well executed. A braised pork cheek ($14 for two servings) was served atop a crispy grit cake and
topped with a cabbage slaw. The combination worked well with plenty of textural contrast and balanced flavors. Finishing salt brought the dish to another level. The burrata ($15) burst with creamy deliciousness when cut and made a great combination with the balsamic vinegar and olive oil when spread on the thick-cut toast. The chocolate Nutella cake dessert ($8) was accented by orange in the subtle ice cream and an intense marmalade like sauce. The cake was barely set and had a nice brownie like crust outside, but the orange flavors obfuscated any of the hazelnut characteristics. In something slightly out of the ordinary, I want to mention the fantastic service we received from a specific waiter during our visits. A fine gentleman with even finer hair named Ben made an impression on my wife and I by perfectly reading the mood of our table. He consistently kept us engaged and amused during our meals and was eager to feed us information as we asked for it. Of course it wasn’t just Ben that made the service notable, the rest of the team was attentive while still remaining relatively casual.

Orodruin SATURDAY, JANUARY 23 BUG JAR, 219 MONROE AVENUE 8 P.M. | $5 | BUGJAR.COM FACEBOOK.COM/ORODRUINOFFICIALBAND [ ROCK ] Orodruin will melt your face. The band's
orchestration is unparalleled, weaving beautiful melodies among thick, heavy atmospheres. It’s a classic sound; epic foreboding riffs that chug along with slamming drums, creating tension that is waiting to release. Set against the music are growling vocals invoking ancient feelings of woe and dread, seemingly betrothed to a lost love or serenading some Viking funeral procession. Hints of blues and hard rock seep in, but they are used as accents, dropped in just long enough to touch an emotion before returning to the sludge. Rabid, Saints & Winos, and Day of the Locust will also perform. — BY ERIC WITKOWSKI

Hip-hop with real instruments is so much cooler, don’t you think? That’s not to decry the talents of turntablists in the world, but guitars, bass, and drums makes it more real to me. Now Subsoil is about as real as it gets — but it uses turntables, however. They are paired up with the organic tools as well. And the merging of the two totally works on the group’s new CD, “On the Bus.” I mean, what could cut the deep shag of the title track like the piano does? Vocal duties are shared and don’t include baffling the listener as their mantra but rather serving the song. This includes melodic breakdowns into singing — not just the band’s luxurious lyricism. Further left turns are the permeating classic soul rearing its head, along with the descent into rock and rage and the intentionally arranged room for live exploration. If you ask me, Subsoil is more than just hip-hop. Get on the bus and groove with ‘em. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

“Song Without Singing” Creative Spirit Records fredrandolph.com
AMFMS and Frends Frends. Bug Jar, 219
In the world of jazz, barriers are breaking down fast. The new album by San Francisco Bay Area bassist Fred Randolph is a case in point. Randolph has already crossed genres, playing in the bands of jazz artists like Akira Tana and folk stars like Maria Muldaur. On his new album, “Song Without Singing,” Randolph offers a globe-spanning collection of tunes that, with one exception, are his own compositions. The exception is an almost Baroque, horncentered arrangement of Sting’s “King of Pain,” but it’s Randolph’s global village that wins the day. Aside from American jazz, musical influences range from Mali and South Africa to Venezuela and Argentina. Randolph, who is especially strong on electric fretless bass, is well supported by Matt Clark, piano; Erik Jekabson, trumpet; Rob Roth, saxophone; Greg Wyser-Pratte, drums; and Alex Murzyn, saxophone and flute, but there are a host of guests. Accordionist Rob Reich nicely enhances a tune inspired by Astor Piazzolla, and singer Sandy Cressman is wonderful on a samba titled “Pelo Mar.” — BY RON NETSKY

When he was 7 years old, Carl Severinsen asked his dad for a musical instrument. His father, a violin-playing frontier dentist (hence Carl’s nickname, “Little Doc”), wanted his son to play fiddle. But Carl insisted on a trombone. Just one problem: there were no trombones in Arlington, Oregon’s small-town music store, so they settled on a trumpet. The following week, Severinsen was asked to join the high school band. How did he get so good so fast? “It was a small cowboy town, there wasn’t that much to do, and my dad was on my case constantly making sure I didn’t do things wrong,” says Severinsen, who guests with the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra on Friday and Saturday. The family did not own a record player and it wasn’t until several years later that Severinsen could tune in faraway radio broadcasts featuring the bands of Tommy Dorsey, Harry James, or Benny Goodman if it was a clear night and he got lucky. Still, by the time he was 17, Severinsen was good enough to hit the road with the Ted Fio Rito Orchestra. The band’s older players may have been more sophisticated, but Severinsen had an advantage. “My dad and the high school band director 12 CITY JANUARY 20-26, 2016
would enter me in competitions around the state and I won all of them,” Severinsen says. “It automatically set my sights higher. What I learned from my father was quite a bit better than what these guys had.” Severinsen believes today’s aspiring musicians could use some tough love. “My father standing over me and not being afraid to criticize me — that’s what’s lacking today,” Severinsen says. “No one wants to offend kids and they’re not criticized at home. They get to school and the band director has something to explain to them and he’s afraid to do anything because the parents will yell at him for yelling at their kids. Kids go through life that way. They can’t take criticism so they never get to be as good as they ought to be.” In the late 1940’s, after a stint in the Army during World War II, Severinsen joined many of the bands he’d heard on the radio including those of Dorsey, Goodman, and Charlie Barnet. By the mid-1950’s, he was playing on records with singers like Dinah Washington and Anita O’Day. And in the late-1950’s, he was in the horn section on cutting-edge albums like George Russell’s “New York, N.Y.,” a record featuring John Coltrane, Bill Evans, and Max Roach. In 1962, Severinsen got the gig that would make him a household name: first trumpet in The Tonight Show band. He took over as leader in 1967 and held the position for 25 years, also taking on the role of the flashy dressing, exuberant sidekick to Johnny Carson. “I always was that way, overly outgoing,” Severinsen says. “When you’re a young kid in a cow-town and all your classmates are cowboys and football players and you weigh about half as much as they do, you find ways to make up for the differences by trying to get laughs or being a character.
decades, Severinsen has had no shortage of high points, but one stands out: the night he played a particularly difficult trumpet concerto by Stephen Paulus with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl in September 1991. “I guess I just got lucky,” says Severinsen. “I had no idea what was happening when it was happening, but when I came off stage, I realized that I had a pretty doggone good performance. Billboard magazine reviewed the concert. They don’t hand out good words too easily and they gave me far past a glowing review. That didn’t impress me, but it just reassured me that that was pretty good. As a sheer trumpet player, that’s the best day I ever had.” At 88, Severinsen, who shares a birthday with his favorite composer, Gustav Mahler, maintains a busy concert schedule. “I have to keeps tabs on my physical condition, stay physically fit and eat right. And don’t lower your expectations. You can’t stand up in front of an audience and say, ‘I’m 88, so it probably won’t sound so good.’ You have to just make up your mind to do the very best you can.” At Kodak Hall, Severinsen is bound to play some charts by RPO Principal Pops Conductor Jeff Tyzik, who he met decades ago though trumpeter Al Vizzutti when Tyzik and Vizzutti were students at the Eastman School of Music. When Severinsen, several years later, needed some music written to set him apart from other trumpeters, “I knew that Jeff was the logical guy to do it. The music was advancing and Jeff took me right along with it.” There’s another Rochester connection: Early
in his career, Rochester’s great avant-garde trumpeter Paul Smoker was having physical issues playing. As he put it in a 2010 interview, he was fortunate to run into Severinsen, who had gone through a similar problem and gave him valuable advice about how to solve it. “I met Paul when he was a student at the University of Iowa,” Severinsen says. “Paul was just a hell of a good player, a fabulous player. You attempt to be helpful; it’s reassuring to hear that it did some good. “Trumpet players are a brotherhood. We’re united because of what we face every day. It’s like being an opera singer. The first thing an opera singer wants to know when he wakes up in the morning is, do I still have a voice. It’s the same thing with a trumpet. Do I still have the ability to pick that thing up and play it well? It never goes away.”

A blessing in disguise “Miracle on South Division Street” REVIEWED SUNDAY, JANUARY 17 CONTINUES THROUGH SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 7 WILSON STAGE AT GEVA THEATRE CENTER, 75 WOODBURY BOULEVARD TICKETS START AT $25 | CHECK GEVATHEATRE.ORG FOR TIMES AND PRICES [ REVIEW ] BY LEAH STACY
Between the “Buffalo Billion,” the Canalside project, and a Katie Couric-hosted video series for Yahoo! News kicking off its first episode in the Queen City, Buffalo has been making a sort of post-industrial comeback over the last few years. But Buffalo native and renowned playwright Tom Dudzick isn’t writing about the future (at least, not yet). His works — most notably the comedic “Over the Tavern” trilogy — focus on the blue-collar descendants of immigrants who raised families, worked, lived, and died in the city. Last weekend one such play, “Miracle on South Division Street,” opened at Geva Theatre Center. It premiered in 2009 at the Penguin Repertory Theatre in Stony Point, New York, and ran off-Broadway in 2012 before moving to regional theaters to tour. The fictional story is based on a real life account of Dudzick’s barber, who claimed the Virgin Mary appeared to him one day in his shop and thus erected a 17-foot-tall statue in the neighborhood. In the play, the barber is the deceased patriarch of the Nowak family, and a deathbed confession reveals the statue’s 14 CITY JANUARY 20-26, 2016
origins to be a bit more complicated than his grandchildren and daughter ever suspected. The play uses a seemingly simple plot, but packs several hilarious twists that keep the audience’s attention for the entire 100-minute run. Pamela Hunt (“Radio Gals” and “Five Guys Named Moe” at Geva) directs a four-person cast with finesse, blending every day actions like slicing fruit and cheese with duel-like staging around the Formica kitchen table. The matriarch of the story (and daughter to the barber), Clara, is played by Toni Di Buono, who also appeared in last season’s “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” as Sonia. Di Buono replaced another actor last minute in the role, but it’s hard to imagine anyone else as the warm, nagging, and kindhearted character. She’s splendidly witty and convincing as the Catholic mother who’s tragically mourning her grown children’s departures from the Church. Her grown daughter, Ruth (Laura Gragtmans), is the most reticent to the family religion, as she’s busy pursuing a theatrical career and writing a book about the family’s statue. Her eyes are set on New York City, where Clara sarcastically remarks the younger generation migrates as they “give up” on Buffalo. (The play is set in 2010, right before the Nickel City began to rebound.) Gragtmans captures the grace and anxiety of an adult child who desperately wants to please her mother and keep the family together while also pursuing her dreams. Ruth’s brother, Jimmy (Colin Ryan), and sister, Beverly (Katharine McLeod), have no plans to leave the city, since they both have local jobs on a garbage truck and in a bottling factory, respectively. Ryan plays the smartass, charming younger brother
who’s also a bit of a mama’s boy, while McLeod is the beautiful — yet aging — older sister who can’t keep a committed relationship afloat. The four portray a very believable family — led by Di Buono — and the constant energy and banter is particularly impressive. The scenic design by Bill Clarke is brilliant. The set is primarily the kitchen of a rundown house on South Division Street, located on Buffalo’s east side (and where Dudzick actually spent his childhood). With its running water, padded teal chairs and ancient appliances, the kitchen is so realistic that Polish folks might think they smell Golumpkis baking in the oven. Amanda Doherty’s costume designs are expertly tailored to each character, revealing nuanced details about their history and lifestyle. The lighting by Derek Madonia captures the wilting sunshine of an early autumn day in Western New York, and the warm glow of dusty light fixtures in the house. Sound designer Dan Roach sets the tone with pre-show and intermission sets of lively polka tunes. In his biography, Dudzick is described as “one of the few playwrights who makes a living at it,” and after seeing one of his shows, the high success rate is obvious. He writes for the audience he grew up with. With its Babka (a sweet bread) and Hail Mary references, the lines in “Miracle” are a transcription of every Polish-American Catholic household from the 1930’s to present day. It’s touching, heartfelt — and blessedly entertaining.

ART | “REFUGE”
SPECIAL EVENT | RHYTHMIC CIRCUS
COMEDY | GREG MORTON
On Thursday, January 21, Hartnett Gallery (Wilson Commons, University of Rochester) will present “Refuge,” an immersive environment of silkscreen prints, alternative photography, and installation elements by Ellie Honl. “Refuge” is informed by psychological theories surrounding coping strategies, Honl’s interest in architecture, and the literary genre of science fiction. It deals in imagery of swarms and mysterious landscapes as a metaphor for the unreliable circumstances of life, while in contrast, geometric shelters represent safe and rational sanctuaries.
The name is spot on: Rhythmic Circus is a crew of dancers and musicians who produce swinging, funky performances full of tap shoes, costumes, and comedy. Backed by a sevenpiece brass band, and sometimes a beatboxer, a group of dancers work out a percussive, entertaining routine filled with tap, stomps, and synchronization. Rhythmic Circus is currently on the road with its stage show, “Feet Don’t Fail Me Now,” which earned the group the “Spirit of the Fringe Award” at the 2012 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Greg Morton’s witty, pointed observations — and a silky smooth, rich voice — has made him a regular for comedy clubs across the country for a couple of decades. While his bits usually focus on the hidden humor of everyday life — the inconvenience of low-flow toilets, the hazards of lawn darts when he was a kid — Morton adds in impressions and sight gags to mix up his stories. Morton is a four-time veteran of the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival, and has performed with everyone from Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock to Bill Maher.
An artist talk will be held on Thursday, January 21, 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. in the Gowen Room (also in Wilson Commons), followed by a reception in the gallery space held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The show remains on view through February 14. Gallery Hours are Tuesday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, call 275-4188, or visit blogs.rochester.edu/ hartnett.

Questionable tactics “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi”
and the thought of the director taking on a subject like Benghazi is enough to make you cringe in anticipation of the director’s worst impulses (xenopho(R), DIRECTED BY MICHAEL BAY bia, racism, and sexism among them).

Bay’s simplistic characterization assigns only a few distinguishable traits to each man, and it took me a while to tell them apart (what can I say: apparently beefy, bearded white men all look the same to me). On the night of September 11, a large group of heavily-armed militants storm the poorly guarded compound where visiting ambassador Chris Stevens (Matt Letscher) is residing. With no other forces in the area, the GRS team are forced to watch the attack from their station a mile down the road, until taking it upon themselves to intervene, against their commanding officers’ orders. The majority of “13 Hours” and its 144-minute running time is devoted almost exclusively to the siege. For better and for worse, Bay’s instincts as a commercial filmmaker are as strong as ever, and the action is brutally intense. Bay’s staging has always been chaotic, and for once it’s appropriate, the men are never sure who is friend and who is foe, and Bay gets plenty of tension out of the indecisive beats that follow the radioed question, “Are we expecting friendlies?” This is Bay’s most visually coherent film, most likely a credit to director of photography Dion Beebe, whose work with director Michael Mann in “Collateral” and “Miami Vice” has pushed the boundaries of digital photography. Beebe’s overlysaturated, often handheld camerawork at times makes abstract art of the combat sequences. Bay’s assurances that he’s left politics out entirely are a bit overstated, (the situation turned into a conservative rallying cry against the Obama

Going nowhere “Ride Along 2” (PG-13), DIRECTED BY TIM STORY NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
administration and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — though neither are ever mentioned by name in the movie), still the majority of the fingerpointing is restricted to the broader bureaucratic failings of the government. These missteps are personified by the team’s officious commanding officer (David Costabile), who keep our heroes from moving in earlier and potentially saving lives. For the most part, the film seeks only to honor the heroism of the brave men on the ground, though the tribute comes at the expense of all others: the sole Libyan character of even minor depth is a translator (Iranian actor Peyman Moaadi), while the only woman of note is a lobbyist, who gets to be the recipient of barked orders like “I need your eyes and ears but not your mouth!” Bay makes some late-film attempts at evenhandedness, ending the action by showing the countless bodies of dead Libyan insurgents and the women who mourn over their corpses. It’s mostly too little, too late, but it’s more nuanced than one might expect from the director who distilled the events at Pearl Harbor into a love triangle (Bay does recycle that film’s memorable, though tactless, shot from the POV of a falling bomb). If it can be argued that “13 Hours” is making any point at all, it seems to be a message of non-involvement, put into words by Silva as he ruefully wonders if, should he die in combat, his children will recall that “he died in a place he didn’t need to be, in a battle he didn’t understand, in a country that meant nothing to him.”
The first “Ride Along” was an enjoyable, if never particularly good, action-comedy that coasted on the considerable comedic chemistry between actors Ice Cube and Kevin Hart as mismatched buddy cops (though with Hart’s character a wannabe police officer to Ice Cube’s veteran detective). Picking up not long after the events of the original film, “Ride Along 2” sees Hart once again playing diminutive, motor-mouthed Ben Barber, now a freshly graduated police academy cadet and a probationary officer. The new film sticks to the formula, giving audiences more of the same — through as per the requirements of mainstream sequels, it’s all bigger, louder, and a little staler this time around. Tagging along with his soon to be brother-in-law, James (Cube), on a drug bust, the accident-prone Ben manages to bungle the investigation and inadvertently shoot the detective’s current partner (Tyrese Gibson) in the process. With the position of partner

now vacated, Ben insists on joining James when the case requires that they head to Miami on the tail of a kingpinesque philanthropist and crimeboss named Antonio Pope (Benjamin Bratt, mostly being Benjamin Bratt, but having a good time doing it). Ben’s fiancée, Angela (Tika Sumpter, who has even less to do than she did in the last film, which is saying something) pleads with her brother to take Ben along to get him out of her hair while she finalizes the last-minute details of the couple’s impending nuptials. Despite having come around to him by the end of the last film, James agrees, deciding that he’ll use the situation to prove to Ben once and for all that he’s not cut out for law enforcement. Hart and Cube’s characters are defined by one specific trait (shrill and glowery, respectively), and both performers struggle to find ways to round them out. Hart’s over-the-top persona can be funny, but he requires solid material to work off of, and the mostly laugh-free script — credited to Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi — just isn’t up to the task. Ice Cube can play surly with the best of them, but he proved a much better straight man in the “Jump Street” films, where he had the stellar writing of Phil Lord and Chris Miller backing him up. Returning director Tim Story has previously directed both actors to solid performances in comedies like “Barbershop” and “Think Like a Man,” but here the actors are forced to simply recycle the most memorable bits from the first film. There’s a couple clever gags, the best of which is a visuallyinspired sequence that turns a standard car chase into a “Grand Theft Auto” style video game; that’s admittedly not exactly the freshest inspiration, but we’ll take what we can get.
Mostly a lot of wheel-spinning that goes nowhere, it’s being generous to call the Pope plotline “by-the-numbers.” The new Miami location leads Story to occasionally attempt poor facsimiles of the “hot girls and fast cars” montages that add a bit of cheeky flavor to the “Fast and Furious” films, but it only succeeds in making us miss the slick directorial skill behind that series. Considering the sequel’s increased budget, it’s a little perplexing that effects manage to look even shoddier than the first film. There’s an unfortunate sequence in which Hart tangles with a truly terrible-looking CGI alligator that’s just embarrassing, and manages to waste Hart’s talent for slapstick in the process. As the major new additions to the film’s ensemble, Olivia Munn and Ken Jeong’s characters are a mixed bag. Playing a local homicide detective who helps out with the investigation (and an eventual love interest for Cube), Munn gets a surprising amount to do (particularly given the type of movie she’s in), but scenes like the one in which her character inexplicably shows up to a crime scene fresh from the gym and clad in only a sports bra don’t do her any favors. As a hacker on Pope’s payroll, Ken Jeong’s mostly in obnoxious sidekick mode, and with their loud, over-thetop personalities, having him and Hart together onscreen is … a lot to take. Despite the limp material, “Ride Along 2” has already made boatloads of money, speeding past “The Revenant” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” to take the top spot at the box office last weekend, so it seems a given that we’ll be seeing a “Ride Along 3” sometime in the near future. Between counting their piles of money, one can only hope the cast and filmmakers take the time to search out a script more worthy of their talents.

THEATER | “THE WIZARD OF OZ”
SPECIAL EVENT | OWL MOON NATURE TRAIL TOUR
THEATER | “THE MUSIC MAN”
The journey to find “somewhere over the rainbow” returns to the stage with a reconceived adaptation from Andrew Lloyd Webber (“The Phantom of the Opera,” “Cats”) and Jeremy Sams (“Chitty the Musical”), which originally debuted in London’s West End in 2011. Tim Rice (“Evita,” Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast”) and Webber also collaborated to create new, additional songs for the production. The new songs feature the Wizard, Glinda, and the Wicked Witch of the West (who didn’t have musical numbers in the 1939 MGM film). The costume and set design is also reimagined — including ruby slippers covered in Swarovski crystals.
When it’s cold and dark in the early evenings, it’s easy to hole up and forget about the world outside of your couch. Catch some fresh air and witness some nature on Saturday, January 23, when one of the Owl Moon Nature Trail Tours will be offered at Genesee Country Village & Museum (1410 Flint Hill Road, Mumford).
In 1936 — the same year the Hoover Dam was completed and the Yankees won its fifth world series — Erva Smith and Reverend John Schott created the Webster Theatre Guild. Nearly 80 years later, the guild still exists to produce Broadwaystyle shows, bestow arts grants, and provide scholarships to high school students who aspire to earn a living onstage. To celebrate its 80th anniversary, the Webster Theatre Guild will perform “The Music Man,” the classic story about a traveling con man who lands in River City, Iowa, to “start a marching band” — but finds a little more than he expected.

The event features a moonlit, interactive, guided walk through the wintry woods, marshmallow-roasting around a campfire, and a chance to learn how local owls adapt to their environment. Tours are scheduled in groups of 20, and are booked every 20 minutes from 5 to 8:30 p.m. Although the sun is still setting depressingly early, the moon will be nearly full, so visibility should be pretty good. Though museum staff can’t guarantee you’ll encounter owls on the trails, you can get up-close-and-personal with them at an owl meet and greet hosted by Wild Wings, Inc. The owls and their keepers will be available from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. A reading of Jane Yolen’s “Owl Moon” will also take place. Visitors should plan to arrive 30 to 45 minutes before their scheduled hike in order to have ample time to see the live owls on site. Hot cocoa will be complementary, and wine, beer, and soft drinks will be available for purchase. Participation in the hike costs $14 ($10 for museum members), and reservations are required. Call 294-8218, or visit gcv.org for more information. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY Jan. 24. Sat. Jan. 22 & 23, 7:30 p.m. and Sun.

Modern and Historic
4 Greenwood Street On a narrow, one-way street in Corn Hill sits a modest Greek Revival style home with a storied past. Reported to have originally functioned as a carriage house for George Selden, who patented the automobile in 1895, the residence has witnessed many transformations. 4 Greenwood Street was built in 1849. In the early 1970s, as determined residents were fighting to save the neighborhood from the bulldozers, asphalt siding was removed, revealing the wood clapboards beneath, and the house was rehabbed. Today, 4 Greenwood and the historic houses that surround it, stand as a testament to the efforts of those who fought to save the city’s oldest residential neighborhood from the ravages of urban renewal. In its latest transformation, the interior of the home has become an entirely modern abode, with respectful nods to the past. In this respect, 4 Greenwood is perfect for those who find the walkability and character of a historic urban neighborhood appealing but who prefer modern finishes. It seems that attention has been paid to every detail in this 1,216 square foot home. The compact space is intelligently designed, maximizing every nook and cranny to provide abundant storage and a layout that feels at once cozy and open and airy. The main entrance opens to a small tiled hall where you can leave your snowy boots. To the right is a spacious eat-in kitchen with all the bells and whistles—new white cabinets, center island, granite countertops, stainless
steel appliances, tile floor, and loads of storage. Out the back door, is the fenced and virtually maintenance-free backyard, with a brick patio, a shed and no lawn. The living room, which takes up the front twothirds of the house, features a gas fireplace with a modern surround and bamboo floors. Directly above is a lofted office space that provides additional natural light. A space-saving spiral staircase leads to the lofted office and, down the hall, to the full bath and bedroom. The sleek, modern bathroom features a tiled shower with glass doors, a tile floor, and a double vanity with granite countertop. The bedroom, tucked under the eaves at the back of the house, has a cozy, warm feel to it. Built-in cabinets and closets are smartly incorporated along nearly every wall surface, providing plenty of storage. A partially finished basement provides space for a media room or guest room. The unfinished portion holds the laundry and the potential for adding a second bathroom for guests. Located on one of the most picturesque streets in the beautiful, historic Corn Hill neighborhood and within walking distance to downtown, Corn Hill Landing, and the Riverway trail, the location is ideal. 4 Greenwood St. is listed at $144,900. Get a look inside by contacting agent Rick Leasure of Realty USA at 585-729-2500. by Caitlin Meives Caitlin is the Preservation Planner at The Landmark Society.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD
The New Grade Inflation
They are simply “‘spas’ designed to attract teenagers,” according to one university official — plush, state-ofthe-art “training” complexes built by universities in the richest athletic conferences to entice elite 17-year-old athletes to come play for (and, perhaps, study at?) their schools. The athletesonly mini-campuses include private housing and entertainment (theaters, laser tag, miniature golf) — but, actually, the schools are in a $772-million-plus “arms’ race” (according to a December Washington Post investigation) because soon after one school’s sumptuous, groundbreaking facility opens, some other school’s more-innovative facility renders it basically second-rate. And of course, as one university official put it, the “shiny objects” have “nothing whatsoever to do with the mission of a university.” (Donors and alumni provide much of the funding, but most schools by now also tap students’ “athletic fees.”)
— Police in Monticello, Kentucky, charged Rodney Brown, 25, with stealing farm animals and equipment from a home in December — but offering to return everything if the victim (a man) had sex with him. Brown allegedly took 25 roosters, a goat and some rooster pens and other rooster-care equipment. (Because Brown also supposedly said he’d beat the man up if he called police, a “terroristic threatening” count was added to “promoting prostitution.”) — Made in Heaven: William Cornelius, 25, and his fiancee, Sheri Moore, 20, were arrested at the Bay City (Michigan) Mall in January, charged with theft.
Police found a pair of earrings and a necklace swiped from Spencer Gifts on her, but she refused to “snitch” on Cornelius, who had minutes earlier proposed to her via a Wal-mart loudspeaker and given her a ring, to applause from onlooking shoppers as she accepted. Cornelius, holding $80.93 worth of goods (a watch, an edible thong, a vibrator, and “BJ Blast” oral-sex candy), was apprehended at the mall food court, having apparently (according to the police report) “fallen asleep at a table while tying his shoe.”
— The most promising current concussion-prevention research comes from a study of ... woodpeckers (according to a December Business Week report). Scientists hypothesize that the birds’ apparent immunity from the dangers of constant head-slamming is because their neck veins naturally compress, forcing more blood into their craniums, thus limiting the dangerous “jiggle room” in which brains bang against the skull. A team led by a real-life doctor portrayed in the movie “Concussion” is working on a neck collar to slightly pinch the human jugular vein to create a similar effect. — Researchers from the University of York and the University of St. Andrews wrote in the journal Biology Letters in December that they observed wild male parrots using pebbles in their mouths to help grind seashells into powder and hypothesized that the purpose was to free up the shells’ calcium in “vomitable” form so that they could pass it to females before mating, to help improve their offspring’s health outcomes.
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 20 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your energetic nature will grab attention and ignite the interest of someone equally as spontaneous as you. Engage in activities that allow you to show off your talents. A positive change in your romantic life will escalate into an interesting courtship that will take your emotions on a unique journey. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Someone you meet through a co-worker will pique your imagination. Put your best foot forward and show off a little, and you will be given the opportunity to get to know the person you are interested in better. Let your intellect,
wisdom and affinity for quality take over. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): It won’t take much for you to discover someone with exceptional traits to hang out with. The interests you share and the lifestyle similarities you have will make you mirror each other. Once past the initial stages of feeling like you met your soul mate, the magic will begin. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Emotional issues will creep into any romantic situation you encounter. Don’t let jealousy stop you from making the first move. Being proactive will keep you in the game and allow you to outdo any competition you meet along
the way. It’s your tenacity that will make you stand out. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Get in the game. If you want someone to like you, turn on your Leo charm and pursue with a passion. Offering sincere intentions will attract someone who is looking to achieve the same personal goals. Discussing your views on kids and marriage will seal the deal. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You need to get out more. Make a point to sign up for events that interest you, and interact more with the people you share the most in common with. Don’t be fooled by someone who is too agreeable or predictable.
You want a life partner, not a chameleon. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t sit at home waiting for someone to ring your doorbell. If you want to meet someone new and exciting, you’ll have to venture out into the world and participate in activities that you find inviting. Don’t be afraid to share your thoughts and feelings. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Communication and sharing your unique perspective on the way things should be done or the concerns you have and the solutions you can offer will attract more than interest in your intellect. It will draw someone who feels passionate
about you and the changes you want to make. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Listen carefully and answer honestly. If you want to start a relationship with someone, it’s important to share thoughts and personal goals. Avoid anyone offering an indulgent future -- even if it does sound enticing and full of adventure. The wrong partner will lead to unwanted trouble. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Just do your own thing and let onlookers approach you. Your dynamic outlook and desire to accomplish will be enough of a draw to ensure you will be honored with someone’s undivided attention and
willingness to stand by your side. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Host an open-house party, and someone you’ve never met before will attend with one of your friends. The instant connection will lead to a friendship that has plenty of potential and loads of chemistry. Flirtatious banter will ensure that you will meet again. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Help others. Join a cause or partner with someone who shares your concerns, and focus on making a difference. Don’t be drawn in by someone offering a cheap thrill or an emotional roller coaster ride. You deserve better, even if it means waiting for the right person to come along.

Film is one of Rochester’s proudest legacies, and as a filmmaker and the regional film commissioner, I am happy that CITY celebrates film and the movies in every issue. I turn to CITY for its arts and news coverage and appreciate the staff’s support of local screenings, film festivals, and moviemaking. We entrusted CITY with the print and digital advertising for the High Falls Film Festival, as well as the printing of our official festival guide. We’re lucky to live in and near a city rich in the arts and also to have a media outlet that supports the arts as thoroughly as CITY does. - Nora Brown, Rochester Film Commissioner and Executive Director, High Falls Film Festival
