Chills, thrills, and gills: ice fishing in Rochester Rochester is obviously known for its icy cold winters. But few would guess that, according to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the Greater Rochester area is home to roughly 2000 sportsmen willing to trek out on frozen ponds, cut through the surface ice, and try to catch a fish on just about any pond or body of water that freezes over between December and March. On a good weekend, if conditions are right, you can easily find anywhere from 100 to
200 ice fishermen just on Sodus Bay — and just about as many on the next waterway and the next after that. Read on to learn about how this sport with ancient roots has changed — or not — with modern technology, how local anglers mitigate the sometimes treacherous conditions, and why they risk life and limb. (Pictured: local ice fisherman Tim Thomas on Hundred Acre Pond at Mendon Ponds Park.)

Students and college loans
Tim Macaluso’s recent article ignores the real issues behind massive student debt. Instead of parroting college administrators in blaming parents and students for their poor choices and lack of “financial discipline,” it might have mentioned this vicious cycle: Colleges have been able to inflate tuition costs way beyond even health-care costs because of the government-subsidized student loans themselves. The market for higher education would surely have dropped in the face of outrageous price increases, deterring students from going to college. But students can get subsidized student loans very easily, which they cobble together to pay staggering tuition costs. Meanwhile the colleges get paid up front, and crippling debt accumulation is the student’s problem. And the “too big to fail” banks who are the middlemen in these subsidized transactions are all too happy to play their role riskfree, since if students default, the banks will be reimbursed by the government. The government can then sell the loan to a collection agency, often owned by the same banks, adding their fees to bloated interest payments. Young people could avoid this rapacious cycle if only they could make a decent living without getting a college degree, but there are few alternatives. Meanwhile, those with their degrees are not coming out with high-paying jobs enabling them to service their debt, since this is the highest unemployment rate for college graduates ever recorded. Compounding this dire situation is this stunning fact: while interest rates are generally at an alltime low, with those on government debt currently pegged at 1.97 2 CITY

percent, interest rates on federal student loans, set by Congress, remain stuck at 6.8 percent, needlessly and disproportionately burdening students. Even if the entire studentloan machinery won’t be easily dismantled, these exorbitant interest rates can be reduced immediately. And it is in the nation’s best economic interest to do so, since reduced student-loan costs decrease the likelihood of default while stimulating the economy by freeing up income that can be spent in other sectors of the economy. The Center for American Progress has initiated a campaign to pressure Congress to lower student-loan interest rates. Also, the group Occupy Student Debt has organized a “Rolling Jubilee” strategy to buy off student debt, as well as a movement to empower student debtors to commit themselves to a massive nationwide “Debt Strike.” These offer some alternatives to simply blaming the victim or counseling despair. In the words to students from the still vibrant Occupy movement: “You are not a loan.” DOUG NOBLE, ROCHESTER
I almost threw the newspaper across the room (not your fault, City!) when I read U of R Burdick’s quote that a family with $100K income should be able to pay $20K to $25K per year for college costs. To what planet has the U of R campus moved? I’m sure there’s someone in the economics department that can inform Mr. Burdick of what $100K is after taxes –and then point out that $20K to $25K is in the range of 1/3 of actual take home pay. “It’s definitely not the time to go out and buy a house,” Burdick advises. I guess we’ll just live in our cars, then? Or is transportation – like to, you know, work? not as important as going to U of R either? U OF R ALUM

Brighton’s larger than you think
I was startled to read that reviewer James Leach mistakenly placed Yummy Garden at the “epicenter” of Henrietta, because Yummy Garden is located in Brighton, not in Henrietta. Brighton is home to a wide variety of ethnic restaurants, from Amaya to Chen Garden, Fox’s to Seoul House, and many more. It is home to some of Rochester’s classic finedining restaurants, like Max Chophouse and Grinnell’s and to family diners like Charbroil and Jay’s Diner. Brighton is home to MCC, Michelina’s and West Henrietta Road, not just Brighton High School, Mario’s and the 12 Corners. Brighton is diverse, larger than you might think, and full of interesting restaurants. Whether you’re riding in Ellison Park or canoeing on the Erie Canal, shopping on Monroe Avenue or hiking in Corbett’s Glen, you’re enjoying some of the best that Brighton has to offer.

Pittsford and politics
I don’t live in the village of Pittsford, so I don’t have a horse in this race, so to speak (“Rare Political Rancor in Pittsford,” News). I do, however, frequently drive down Monroe Avenue, over the canal bridge, and past where the entrance to this Westport Crossing project would be built. Quite honestly, anyone with the slightest bit of sense can see that any project which would result in dozens (at least) of vehicles exiting this property onto Monroe Avenue (even if mandated to turn south) would result in frequent traffic tieups, as well as collisions from the semi-blind status of that exit. Any attempt to turn north from that property would be a near suicidal experience. ANGELA COOPER

GUEST COMMENTARY | BY SUSAN ORR AND JAMES JOHNSON
Partisanship, poverty, and paychecks In his State of the Union address, President Obama issued a challenge: “Tonight, let’s declare that in the wealthiest nation on earth, no one who works full-time should have to live in poverty, and raise the federal minimum wage to $9 an hour.” On this he finds support from Governor Cuomo, who proposes increasing the New York State minimum wage because, among other things, it “reduces poverty.” Conservatives, of course, reject these proposed increases. Raising the minimum wage, they insist, will kill jobs, especially low-wage jobs. Commentator David Brooks made this claim on PBS immediately following the State of the Union address.

intervention, the Democratic case is overly optimistic. The federal poverty level for a family of four was $23,050 for 2012. Imagine, as President Obama suggests, we increase the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $9 an hour. That means a full-time minimum wage worker would earn a gross annual income of $18,720. If she lives on her own, this would sustain her above the federal poverty level for individuals. But if the worker has a family, it obviously falls well short. Our point is not that the president and governor are wrong to recommend raising the minimum wage. Doing so, even to the levels being proposed, can make many people better off. But doing so is quite unlikely to propel many households out of poverty. This hardly is an abstract complaint. It is directly relevant to Rochester where, in 2011, the overall poverty rate stood at over 29 percent and where just over 43 percent of all children lived in poverty. Raising the minimum wage can go some way to mitigating economic hardship in the city. But it would be only a start. It is the least we can do.

And House Speaker John Boehner quickly tried to puncture the president’s proposal: “When you raise the price of employment, guess what happens? You get less of it. At a time when American people are asking, ‘Where are the jobs?’ why would we want to make it harder for small employers to hire people?” Brooks and Boehner are pushing familiar talking points: minimum-wage legislation has negative consequences and there are better ways to address poverty. As is frequently the case, our politicians and media analysts are roundly mistaken. Consider the conservative reaction. Economists have great difficulty establishing any significant negative relation between modest increases in the minimum wage and declines in employment levels. Moreover, the common claim that low-wage workers are typically teenagers or are working part time – and so not “really” poor – is misleading. Projections conducted by the Economic Policy Institute regarding the impact of a higher federal minimum wage suggest a vast majority of those affected would be over 20. A majority would be women. Most would be working full time. And nearly 30 percent of those affected would be parents. Finally, conservatives often insist that targeted programs like the Earned Income Tax Credit are a better way to alleviate poverty than minimum wage legislation. This too is debatable. On the one hand, such tax policies largely represent a hidden subsidy to employers who are spared the burden of paying reasonable wages. On the other hand, they might actually dampen wages because employers assume, often erroneously, that their workers will be eligible for a tax break. For that reason tax credits are better understood as complementing rather than replacing minimum wage legislation. If conservative skepticism seems merely to mask basic resistance to government

Students can get condoms
The Rochester school district made condoms available free to high school students. The school board approved the controversial condom policy about a year ago after a 2010 county health report showed that new cases of HIV infection among area school-age youth had increased. Condoms are distributed only by school nurses, and students must complete a health course that includes information about HIV/ AIDS prevention before receiving them. Parents can opt out of having their children participate in the program.
RPO issue back in court
Attorney Eileen Buholtz, who is among the activists challenging the leadership of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, filed a petition against the organization in New York State Supreme Court. The filing questions the legality of the RPO’s January 23 annual meeting and asks that the election held at that meeting be voided.

Rochester’s Olympic surprise
The US Olympic Committee sent 35 cities, including Rochester, a letter asking if they’d be interested in hosting the 2024 Games. Rochester’s answer: probably not. Mounting a bid to host the Games would be very expensive and the city probably wouldn’t be able to meet infrastructure needs, such as 45,000 available hotel rooms, said a city spokesperson.

Two Rochester artists have constructed an 18-foot-long rhinestone-laden replica of a US Predator drone, which will be shown as part of a multimedia exhibit opening Friday, March 1, at the Hampden Gallery at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. The installation, “Home Drone,” asks audiences to consider what life is like for people in Pakistan, Yemen, and Afghanistan living under the threat of US drone strikes, and to visualize living under the those same conditions. The creators of the project are Heather Layton, internationally known social intervention artist and senior lecturer at the University of Rochester, and Brian Bailey, professor of adolescence education with a focus on social justice at Nazareth College. Through their work, the artists say they seek to challenge xenophobia and consumerism and to shed light on the physical devastation as well as the psychologically terrorizing effect of living under the daily threat of sudden death or loss of loved ones. The artists hope to encourage peaceful relationships between people
in America and Pakistan with the drone replica, which in its appearance alludes both to American opulence and to the violence that supports it. “After visiting Pakistan, this topic became particularly important to us as we started to realize these drones are attacking people we now consider our friends,” Layton stated in a press release. The Amherst exhibit will also include videos of the 2012 presidential candidates debating drone strikes and of civilians protesting the strikes, as well as a massive map of drone attack sites superimposed over a drawing of Massachusetts, with images of American civilian casualties who would be killed along with drone targets. The American strikes begin with Boston, historically the center for rebels during the American Revolution. The artists chose Massachusetts partly for this reason, and hope to travel the exhibit in the future. More information on the exhibit is available at 413-545-0680 and rochester.edu/news.

More offices and retail space and a 10-unit residential condominium building are planned for the land adjacent to the World War I-era armory on Culver Road. Developer Fred Rainaldi says he hopes to have the project completed by early next year.

Culver Armory, phase 2 The developer of the Culver Road Armory hopes to add a 40,000-square-foot commercial building and a five-story, 10-unit residential building to his complex, filling out his plans for the 10.4-acre site. For the commercial building, Fred Rainaldi Jr. plans a mix of professional offices and retail space in a 30,000-square-foot, two-story addition to an existing 10,000-square-foot structure southwest of the main building. The façade would include a mix of cedar and glass to complement the brick, cedar, and glass exterior of the main armory building. Each unit in the condominium would be about 2,300 square feet, with four spaces of parking: two underground and two above ground. The exterior would be a mix of natural stone and glass, and each unit would have two or three bedrooms and at least two balconies. City officials say the units will be priced at about $375,000 to $425,000, although Rainaldi declined to confirm pricing at the meeting. The building’s entrance would be on Belmont Street. Most of the residents who attended a neighborhood meeting last week seemed impressed with Rainaldi’s presentation, but some did have a few concerns. For example, one resident asked about the height of the condominiums. Rainaldi said they would be 72 feet tall: the commercial building would be

32 feet tall. The tallest part of the main armory building, in comparison, is about 50 feet. The site will require rezoning to a Planned Development District to permit a combination of mixed-commercial use and the residential complex, Rainaldi said. He wants to have the project completed by early next year, he said. Rainaldi’s father, Fred Rainaldi Sr., bought the World War I-era armory at 145 Culver Road across from Cobbs Hill Park in 2009 for about $1.5 million. The 100,000-square-foot structure underwent a massive multi-million dollar renovation that combined modern design elements with the armory’s historic character. The main building, which was redesigned for professional offices and specialty retailers, houses Alex and Ani, a fine jeweler, the restaurant Trata, and offices. Rainaldi says more tenants, including a café, will be moving in by the summer.
For I-Square, the third time was the charm. | Last week, the Irondequoit Town Board voted to support a PILOT – payment in lieu of taxes – for the proposed mixed-use project. It wasn’t the board’s first vote on the agreement. Last year, it approved a 10-year PILOT, though developers Mike and Wendy Nolan wanted a 25-year deal. And earlier this year the board tabled a resolution supporting a 15-year agreement with two 5-year extensions. | Last week’s vote, however, marked the first time that the board members and the Nolans were happy with the outcome. The Town Board unanimously backed a 15-year PILOT agreement with two 5-year extensions, as well as construction and job creation benchmarks. | Under the boardapproved terms, the first payment would be derived from the property’s $2.1 million base assessed value. I-Square’s payments to the town would increase 2.5 percent yearly. | The Monroe County Industrial Development Agency provides the PILOT, but the Town Board had to approve the terms. The resolution approved last week requires Town Board approval of the COMIDA deal if it “materially differs” from the terms it signed off on, said Supervisor Mary Joyce D’Aurizio.

POLITICS | BY JEREMY MOULE
Morelle steps into MCC fray Assembly member Joe Morelle is sharply questioning Monroe Community College’s plan to move its downtown campus. Morelle is not the only local elected official who has been skeptical of the plan; Mayor Tom Richards and County Legislature Democrats have been very critical of it. But Morelle’s involvement is adding to tensions over the plan. The college is counting on state funding for the move, and Morelle has a position of influence within state government. As the Assembly’s majority leader, he’s second in rank only to Speaker Sheldon Silver. And he’s not just questioning the short- and long-term costs of MCC’s plan. He’s also urging SUNY and the governor’s office to conduct independent analyses of MCC’s proposal, a request that college officials say is unusual. “I think it’s a concern to everyone with regard to his continued raising questions, there’s no doubt about that,” says Kenneth Goode, president of the college’s Board of Trustees. MCC wants to buy several buildings on Kodak’s State Street site and renovate them for use as the new campus. Earlier this month the County Legislature authorized the county, which owns all of MCC’s property, to buy the Kodak complex for just under $3 million. The county is negotiating the final terms of that sale. College officials expect the project to cost $72 million, half of which will be covered by the state. MCC officials have said that $30 million of the state funding is accounted for, via previous allocations, one of which would require a technical change for the college to receive it. That change would require the Assembly’s approval. Morelle, however, is skeptical of MCC’s funding claims. “I’m not saying it’s not there,” he says. “I just haven’t seen it.” Morelle also questions whether college officials have adequately studied operating costs at the Kodak site, especially the costs of operating and maintaining the on-site utilities plant. College officials have said that the buildings could, as an alternative, tie into the downtown steam heating district. “The question I’ve asked is how much does it cost to do any of that?” Morelle says. “That’s what I’d like to see an answer to before we decide to plunge into this thing.” He also says the college shouldn’t have dismissed a new proposal by WinnCompanies that could save the county and college money. The company says it can renovate the Sibley building for $57 million. The issues raised by Morelle echo the questions and concerns posed by Richards and Legislature Democrats. And like Richards and the Democrats, Morelle says that the 6 CITY

Sibley building would provide a campus that’s integrated into the heart of the city. The redevelopment of Midtown, along with a new bus station and RIT satellite campus opening up in the area, make the Sibley building a good option for an urban campus, he says. Morelle says that, over the years, he’s been involved with once-promising projects that haven’t panned out: Frontier Field, the fast ferry, and the soccer stadium. Richards has made similar comparisons recently and he says he agrees with Morelle that the state should do its own analysis. Morelle says that the state should examine construction and operating costs of MCC’s Kodak site proposal as compared to Winn’s Sibley building proposal. “If I’ve gotten to be more critical in my analysis and thinking, it’s having been burned several times by well-meaning people who just didn’t give us the right information,” Morelle says. But MCC officials say they are frustrated
that the same questions –which they say they’ve repeatedly answered the best they can – keep coming up. Goode says that college officials spent more than two years studying and analyzing potential campuses before deciding on the Kodak site. They looked at more than 18 potential locations, including the Sibley building, and hired outside experts and site selection consultants to evaluate them. And as part of the selection process, MCC looked at the cost of operating the sites, including the utilities costs. The county and the college are still negotiating the utilities with Kodak, which will determine whether MCC operates the plant. In a December 2011 update, college President Anne Kress wrote that the Kodak site would be cheaper to operate, even though it contains significantly more space. The current city campus is 200,000 square feet. The college is planning to buy 560,000 square feet at the Kodak site, which officials say would give programs and the student body room to grow. The school will only use 275,000 square feet initially.
State Assembly member Joe Morelle, who also chairs the Monroe County Democratic Party, is raising more questions about MCC’s plan for the Kodak site. FILE PHOTO
MCC spokesperson Cynthia Cooper says SUNY has assured the college administration and trustees that it supports the move to the Kodak site. As for the Winn proposal, Goode says he was stunned when the developers introduced the proposal at a County Legislature committee meeting. “We had bent over backwards to delay our decision to listen to them, which other proposals did not have that opportunity to do,” Goode says. “So we think they’ve been treated more than fairly with regard to explaining to us what they had to offer.” On February 15, Kress released another
open letter to push back against the continued questioning of the Kodak site. One of the issues she directly addressed was the state funding. “To correct continued misinformation, $25 million in state funds is already in place for this project,” she wrote. SUNY representatives have confirmed the funding in phone conversations, Cooper says. MCC accesses that money by submitting reimbursement invoices. In her letter, Kress also questioned why critics of the move are taking the Winn Companies’ proposal seriously. Winn originally presented an $85 million plan two years ago; Kress questions what the developer sacrificed to cut $28 million out of its plan. (WinnCompanies have said that the price is lower because they used a different layout.) Downtown Rochester is at a crucial point in its revitalization. New housing is being developed and several companies have moved
their offices or headquarters to the city. And the county has worked with the city to advance some of that development, especially through tax-incentive programs. But MCC’s downtown campus proposal is on the verge of becoming a political issue, if it isn’t one already. If Morelle pushes back against funding for the new MCC campus, is there a risk of a new city-county rift forming? One never materialized after Renaissance Square fell apart, but a new fight over a county-led project in the city could lead to new frustration. In October, the public got a glimpse what that dynamic might look like. At issue was a Monroe County Industrial Development Agency tax benefits package for WinnCompanies, which at the time was buying the Sibley building. Mayor Richards saw politics at play when the vote was delayed. But County Executive Maggie Brooks said the COMIDA board was just doing its due diligence on Winn’s application. COMIDA eventually approved the benefits. With city and county governments facing tight budgets, continued cooperation will be crucial. The two governments work together to provide some services to the community; for example, the county hires the city to run its 911 dispatch center. But over the years other commitments, such as county funding for downtown policing, have eroded. And Richards worries that if the Kodak site is more expensive to operate than the Sibley site, city residents will be harder hit by those costs because of the way the county funds MCC.

If you ever happen to embark on a labelstudying spree like the one I’ve been on, you’ll no doubt find yourself impressed with the creativity and gumption of some of your proverbial neighbors, fellow Western New Yorkers who are making a go of it in the world of edible goods. And, the smart practice of locavorism notwithstanding, all of these homegrown products can be quite inspiring to anyone who has batted around the idea of a little food business of their own. This is the second installment in an ongoing “Made in Rochester” series that highlights locally made vittles. If there’s an area food company you think should be on our radar, please let us know by e-mailing email@example.com or by posting a comment on this article at rochestercitynewspaper.com. From the name you might suspect your kindly Greek grandmother has a secret side gig, but Yaya’s Yummys (yayasyummys.com) is a Penfield business that makes a wide array of jams and jellies (the Caramel Apple Jam is
innocently decadent), dips, olive oil blends, and baking mixes, with a website that provides a gaggle of recipe ideas and tips for using Yaya’s myriad products. And if you’re looking to raise money for your organization but don’t feel like peddling the usual gift wrap, magazines, or giant drums of popcorn, Yaya’s Yummys offers a fundraising program. Get Yaya’s Yummys at Red Bird Market or Deer Run Winery, or maybe look into hosting a Yaya’s Yummys party of your own. High-fructose corn syrup is not solely responsible for the obesity epidemic, but its complicity in the fattening of America is well documented. So the health conscious have turned to more wholesome sweetening options like honey, agave, and Hey Shuga! (heyshuga.com), a sugar-cane syrup derived through a natural enzymatic process that bio-mimics the one bees use to produce honey. Created by the Tejada family, this organic, GMO-free, gluten-free, vegan, and kosher cane syrup is a favorite of bakers and mixologists, and anyone hoping to cut back on their refined sugar consumption ought to check out Lil’ Shuga!, which intensifies the cane syrup with the addition of stevia
extract. You can find both Shuga! products at markets like Lori’s Natural Foods and Abundance Co-op. With roots in a small pasticceria in Sicily, Vigneri Chocolate (vigneri.com) began life in Rochester as a bakery before narrowing its focus to chocolate. The third generation of the Vigneri family is taking the concept further, harnessing the healthful properties of chocolate into the By Nature By Hand collection, a sort of trail mix anchored by chunks of antioxidant-loaded dark chocolate and bolstered with various nuts and dried fruits. Vigneri also makes holiday-themed chocolate — including huge Easter eggs called La Gigantes — and it will soon roll out Quarrels, chocolate intended to be paired with wine. Look for Vigneri products at places like Wegmans and Rosario Pino’s Artisan Foods. Victor’s MaD Foodz (madfoodz.com) makes “all-natural craft hot sauces,” meaning no artificial colors, additives, or preservatives. Whether you’re interested in spicing up meats and fish, or just doing a little dipping, there’s something for every heat tolerance in these citrus-based sauces. They range from
the mild Oh My, with a little warmth from jalapeño pepper; to the moderate singe of the chipotle-kissed Oh Wow and Oh Boy, featuring habanero; to the “massive” ghostpepper kick of the aptly named Oh Mama. Shop the MaD Foodz line at spots like Niblack, Nathaniel Square Corner Store, and Mileage Master. Recently served as part of the President’s Inaugural Luncheon in Washington, D.C., and named Best Honey in New York State at the 2012 New York State Fair, Pat Bono’s Seaway Trail Honey (seawaytrailhoney.com) comes from her small Wayne County apiary. The bees harvest the pollen from apple blossoms, buttercups, goldenrod, locust blossoms, and other wildflowers, their hard work made available unpasteurized and certified kosher. Get Seaway Trail Honey products from places like Simply New York Marketplace & Gifts, the Brighton Farmers’ Market, and the Little Bleu Cheese Shop. To clarify the difference between the two, muesli is granola’s raw, unprocessed cousin, and no one requires a lecture about the potential health benefits of grains in their natural state. With components like oats, flaxseed, fruits, and nuts, muesli can be eaten cold, perhaps after an overnight soak in milk, or prepared like oatmeal. Ian Szalinski launched his rapidly growing Muesli Fusion (mueslifusion.com) in late 2010 after noticing a lack of variety in storebought brands, and currently his company offers six different muesli blends, like the gluten-free Morning Zen, the proteinpacked Athlete Fuel, and An Ox, which features antioxidant-rich goji berries and cacao nibs. Muesli Fusion is available at retailers like Wegmans, RIT’s Global Village Market, and Hegedorn’s. Throughout history, salt has occupied an important place in civilization as a preservative, seasoning, and even a form of payment when one is worth his or her salt. (Read Mark Kurlansky’s fascinating “Salt” if this subject interests you.) Seneca Salt Company (java-gourmet.com), a division of Penn Yan’s Java-Gourmet, is harvesting its culinary flake salt right from a vein in Seneca Lake and offering it unadulterated as well as in blends with rosemary, matcha, vanilla, or lemon, and even a grapevine-smoked version.

Chills,Icethrills, and gills fishing in Rochester FEATURE AND PHOTOS | BY KATHY LALUK
“C’mon! It’s OK — you won’t fall through.” The man in the green-and-brown hunting jacket and snow pants gestured for me to follow him onto the ice-covered pond. The last part of what he said made me pause. Why would he say something like that? But the knowing look in his eye, and the assurance in his voice, melted away my doubts. And so I stepped, cautiously, onto the ice. We crossed the pond — sans boat, raft, or doggy paddle — toward two figures dressed in black and yellow snowsuits. They were easy to spot across the vast, white tundra punctuated only by a few tents atop the ice. As we got closer, the skeleton masks over their faces came into sharper view, sending another frozen shockwave up my neck. But that quickly vanished as Tim Thomas bellowed out a hearty, “Hey there!” The strong handshake and pat on the back reassured me that today, I was not only among friendly ice fishermen. Today I actually was one of the ice fishermen in the Victory Baptist Church’s ice-fishing derby. And by the end of that day, I’d have the frostbitten toes and fingers — and a 14” northern pike — to prove it. Rochester is obviously known for its icy cold winters. But few would guess that, according to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the Greater Rochester area is home to roughly 2000 sportsmen willing to trek out on frozen ponds, cut through the surface ice, and try to catch a fish on just about any pond or body of water that freezes over between December and March. On a good weekend, if conditions are right, you can easily find anywhere from 100 to 200 ice fishermen just on Sodus Bay — and just about as many on the next waterway and the next after that. For some, it’s a way to keep occupied during those long winter months, to get away from the noise and flurry of everyday life. For others, it’s a chance to compete against other anglers and experience the adrenaline that comes with it. And for others still, it’s a tradition, something passed onto them from their parents, something that’s in their blood.
when they were just 8 or 9 years old. The brothers are now in their mid-30s, with families of their own to pass along their fishing skills and know-how. “It started out as a hobby, just something to do, to get us outdoors. And for my brother and I, now it’s become a passion,” Tim Thomas says. The pair is now trying to spread that passion to anyone who wants to give ice fishing a try. The sport has grown steadily both nationally and locally, thanks in part to ever-advancing technology. Ice fishing was born, like many activities that have become modern-day hobbies, out of necessity. Native Americans would carve holes in sheets of ice with primitive axes, and use a spear to catch fish in order to survive the winter months. Over time, ice fishermen traded spears for hooks on fishing lines and those axes for ice augers, and now there are even underwater cameras wintertime anglers can use to check out the action below the ice. But while some of the equipment has evolved, many of the original ideas and principles of the sport remain the same. The most common pieces of modern ice-fishing equipment are jigging rods and tip-ups. Most people who have been fishing on ponds, lakes, and other bodies of water would recognize the jigging rod, which looks like a typical open-water fishing pole, just a little smaller
“It started out as a hobby, something to do to get us outdoors. And now it’s become a passion.” TIM THOMAS
“We were fishing pretty much from the time we were potty trained,” says Jeff Thomas, a local ice fisherman. He and his brother, Tim, learned to fish from their father

(anywhere from 18” to 3’). Typically, anglers use a small piece of bait, like worms or minnows, in addition to lures on jigging rods to catch fish like sunfish, yellow and white perch, and blue gills, which are active in the winter. Anglers jerk the rod to make the bait dance, attracting fish. Tip-ups consist of a wood or plastic frame with a cross-shaped base, a spool of fishing line, and a thin piece of metal that goes between the spool and a flag. When a fish goes for the bait, it triggers the flag, sending it up in the air and signaling the fisherman that he’s got something on the line. Unlike jigging rods, once a fish is hooked through a tip-up, anglers will use their hands to pull up the line rather than a reel to drag the fish to the surface. A newer gadget, called the automatic fisherman, is kind of a combination of the two methods. The small 12” to 14” rod is spring-loaded and bent down toward the
water. When a fish goes for the bait, the rod does the work for you, hooking the fish, and flinging the tip of the rod up into the air. From there, the angler must reel in the fish. (Hey, you can’t have the equipment do all the work for you, right?) “Those are our newest toys,” says Tim Thomas. In the past two years, the Thomas brothers have turned pro, getting sponsorships from several fishing-gear companies. It means they get to test out the newest products on the market. Most modern-day winter fishermen use ice augers, which are large metal poles with a spiral blade attached to the bottom. And while it still involves manual labor, “It’s a hell of a lot easier than back in the day,” Tim Thomas says. And if you’re willing to spend the big bucks, there are battery-, gas-, and propane-powered augers. Those do all the work for you, but they’re a lot heavier and clunkier than manual augers.
You can ice fish pretty much anywhere that freezes over during the winter. That’s good news for area fishermen, since Rochester is surrounded by water. Places where ice fishermen tend to flock include Mendon Ponds Park, Braddock Bay, Irondequoit Bay, Sodus Bay, and some of the Finger Lakes (“Some of them don’t freeze over because they’re so deep,” says Tim Thomas). Depending on what kind of fish they’re going after and what body of water they’re on, fishermen lower their lures and bait down at different depths. While some fish stick close to the bottom of a water body, others swim right underneath the ice. Around here, most anglers target bigger fish like northern pike, walleye, rock bass, and smaller panfish. And since each fish has its own habits, each angler tailors his or her skills accordingly to outsmart the fish. “We’ve tried to go after perch with our pike tactics and it doesn’t work,” Tim Thomas says. “Every species has its own little quirks, their own little things that you have to know about and perfect in order to catch them.” Among those things is daylight. Most ice fishermen head out early in the morning when it’s still dark out. “When the sun comes up, the fish almost get spooked,” Tim Thomas says. He adds that cloudy weather can make the fish more inclined to bite. “[There are] tricks you just have to learn throughout the course of your fishing career,” says local angler Jim Redding. “There’s really no science to it.” He’s been ice fishing for the past five winters, using his father’s old tip-ups. He says he’s been relatively successful, catching several northern pike and more panfish than he can remember. But, “it’s hit and miss a lot of the time. If I had it down, I’d go pro,” he says. For Redding, it’s less about how successful he is at catching fish, and more about spending time with his son, Rick, and 7-year-old granddaughter Aliyah. This is Aliyah’s second full season on the ice. “So long as we can keep her warm, we stay out,” he says. “When she gets cold, it’s time to go home.” Aliyah spends most of her time in the family’s shanty, a small tent pitched on the ice to protect fishermen from the wind. But the second someone shouts “flag up!” she’s bolting across the ice to see what she’s caught. “I may be a girl, but I fish better than a boy,” Aliyah says. And she did just that at the Victory Baptist Church Sportsmen’s tournament on January 26, catching the second-biggest fish (for the record, her catch was 4 lbs., 2 oz., and 28” long).

Acre Pond at Mendon Ponds Park, to keep warm while fishing.
Weather adds another layer of variables to the sport. How
cold it gets — and how long it stays that way — can make the difference between a stellar ice-fishing season and a crapshoot. Locally, the winters have been inconsistent over the past few seasons. Last year, Tim Thomas says, was one of the worst seasons he could remember. “We barely got out at all,” he says. But just a year or two before that, the December chill came in early and stuck around through March, keeping the ice in great shape for ice fishing. It doesn’t take much to build up enough ice on local waterways for it to be safe to fish. According to state Department of Environmental Conservation recommendations, ice fishermen should wait until there is a minimum of 2” to 3” of black ice or 4” to 6” of white ice before venturing out with their equipment. But if temperatures yo-yo, which is often the case in Rochester, it can pose a problem. “Typically if you have temperatures in the teens and single digits, you’re going to be building 1” to 2” of ice per 24-hour period that it stays that cold,” says Tim Thomas. In ice-fishing, “black ice” has nothing to do with the hardto-see slick spots on roadways. Black ice is clearer, and sturdier. It’s the kind of stuff ice fisherman want to see. “It’s very hard, extremely dense, and can support a lot of weight with very little ice,” Tim says. About 1” of black ice is comparable to about 3” to 4” of “white ice” or “snow ice,” according to the continues on page 16 rochestercitynewspaper.com CITY 11

[ REVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
For me, the 1980s were the last stand for pop, before music got stupid, vapid, and insipid. That’s not to say that music of the “Me Decade” was for intellectuals. Let’s face it; we’re all a little blinded by science. But it’s amazing how those little Aquanetted, neon ditties get stuck in your head. People call it a guilty pleasure. Not me; as a recovering Catholic I don’t adhere to guilt or regret. If it sounds good it is good, even if the musical muckety-mucks disapprove. The Big ’80s got a rural dressing down Wednesday night at Abilene courtesy of Charlottesville, Virginia’s Love Canon. The band brandishes classic bluegrass artillery to tackle songs from The Human League, Don Henley, Bow Wow Wow, etc. I expected more non-commercial interpretations, but the band’s arrangements were identical — or damn close — to the originals. There was no “Like a Virgin”/”Foggy Mountain Breakdown,” no sanctified take on “The Devil Inside,” not even a yodeled “Girls Just Want to Have Fun.” How cool would that be? I mean, really. It’s been a while since I’ve caught the world beat/rootsicana of Bloomfield’s Blue Jimmy. These cats swung from honky

tonk to funky tonk while the Friday night crowd at Sticky Lips Juke Joint swung from the rafters. And as varied as this band gets — “Blister In The Sun,” hello? — it’s all strung out and strung together with some hell-bound, angelic harmony. Next, me and the Tin Man saddled up and rode up to Monty’s Krown for trash wave forefathers and godfathers Pink Elephant. This band is the missing link between grunge and whatever the hell we call hard rock today. By the time Abandoned Buildings Club took to the floor — the entire stage was reserved for the band’s two drum sets — the energy was high. The quartet ground low and slow like a junkie stripper with the guitar’s guttural grind going head-to-head with the twin drum bump and stomp. Saturday night at Skylark Lounge AudioInFlux was celebrating the release of “Here Comes The Audio,” a brash and bold new endeavor for these soulful, deep-dish groovsters. It’s a little more upbeat — the band has settled in on its identity and style — and the packed crowd lapped it up eagerly. The joint was jumpin,’ goin’ ’round and ’round.

Goddesses of thunder The Indigo Girls W/THE SHADOWBOXERS SATURDAY, MARCH 2 HOCHSTEIN PERFORMANCE HALL 50 N. PLYMOUTH AVE. 8 P.M. | SOLD OUT GREENTOPIAFESTIVAL.COM INDIGOGIRLS.COM [ INTERVIEW ] BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN
Amy Ray’s voice does it for me every time. Whether it’s delivering a pounding indictment of Holocaust complicity or letting her heart bleed all over an old lover, the sound that claws out of her throat is by turns plaintive, playful, violent, and raw — never passive or ambivalent. It is folk rock’s molten core. Ray is half of the durable and remarkably drama-free duo, the Indigo Girls. The Indigos play a sold out show at Hochstein
Performance Hall on Saturday, March 2, as part of the Greentopia Music series. Ray’s musical partner is sweet-voiced soprano Emily Saliers. The two seem equally matched in songwriting prowess and focus, often taking on religion, politics, and civil rights in sometimes nearly impenetrable — some would say overwrought — lyrics. The difference is that with a Saliers’ song, you know you learned something. With Ray’s, you take a beating. Saliers and Ray met in elementary school in DeKalb County, Georgia, and began performing together in high school. They became the Indigo Girls in the 1980’s, and have since sold more than 12 million albums. Ray also founded the independent label, Daemon Records, in 1990 and has put out several solo albums. Ray and Saliers are longtime activists for LGBT rights (both are openly gay), and many other political, social, and environmental causes. Ray called in recently for a chat about music, sexuality, and politics. An edited transcript of the conversation follows. CITY: Do you think people experience your music through the lens of your sexuality? And, if so, do you find that limiting? Amy Ray: I’m sure
people experience the music through the lens of our sexuality. I think that a lot of the time, and in rock ‘n’ roll, too, even if it’s a straight person you experience their music through the lens of their sexuality. But I The Indigo Girls — Amy Ray and Emily Saliers — are seasoned songwriters think the beauty and musicians who have sold more than 12 million records since debuting in of music is when the 1980’s. The politically charged duo performs this weekend as part of the it can transcend Greentopia Music series. PHOTO BY JEREMY COWART that. And I think 14 CITY FEBRUARY 27 - MARCH 5, 2013
there are moments when people take a song or a performance and they’re in it, and they’re so in touch with it that they’re experiencing it through the lens of their sexuality, instead of yours. And that’s the ultimate. That’s what you want. Obviously, being gay has a special sort of limitation attached to it in the eyes of the world. Maybe some people feel, “Well, I’m not going to be able to relate to that,” or something. I think it’s presented as a limitation by the media, often. I guess there are times when it’s frustrating to me. But I think at this point with me and Emily, we just kind of do what we do. We don’t worry about limitations. Many of the Indigo Girls’ songs have a political, religious, or social-justice bent. But your songwriting is darker than Emily’s. Have you ever had a song that she just refused to do?
I’ve definitely had songs that she didn’t really want to “go there” with, that I did as a solo song because of that. I think “Lucystoners” was a harder one for her, but it wasn’t for political reasons. [The lyrics criticize an editor of Rolling Stone.] I think she just felt like it was casting aspersions at Rolling Stone, and sort of unnecessarily. But we’re pretty aligned. I’d say there were moments when one of us felt a little stronger than the other about something; I might’ve just been more extreme than her. I’ve read that music has gotten increasingly bland since the 1970’s, and it sure feels that way. Where’s the energy? Where’s the anger?
I think there’s always been the homogenized kind of pop: acceptable artists who are manufactured and marketed. But there have always been these great artists who come along and do something different than that. Now I think it’s just harder. We haven’t figured out where those artists are, necessarily. They’re there: on the Internet, all over YouTube… I don’t know if people have time to weed through everything to find them. People have this sense that all they’re getting is this homogenized, boilerplate… [It’s] what they’re being served by the gatekeepers of the music media. continues on page 16

METALCORE I I THE BREATHER
Christian bands tend to get a bad rap for being considered junior-varsity alternatives to the secular mainstream. But anyone who has heard I The Breather can testify that this group is neither meek nor lame. The Baltimore-based quintet is tough, fast, sonically out-of-control and blessed with the ability to make the abrasion sound beautiful. Chalk it up to divine intervention that I The Breather wraps its aggressive riffs around the catechism and makes it look so easy. This complex not-of-this-world music earned the group more than 1 million hits on YouTube for its single “Forgiven.” Expect a multitude of fans to descend upon Dub Land for a night of heavy worship. With Palisades, Wolves at the Gate, Thoughts in Reverse, Into the Harbor, and Define Normal.

state DEC. White ice is less dense and has a higher water content, so it takes more of it to support greater weight. “That’s where a lot of people get the misconception. They think, ‘Oh, there’s 2.5” of ice, we’re fine,’” says Tim Thomas. “But in reality, if it’s white ice, that can be dangerous.” The heavier the equipment you carry with you, the more ice you’ll need to support it. Plan on using a four-wheeler to lug some of your gear? Make sure there’s at least 5” or 6” of solid black ice. Add another 2” to 3” if you want to use a snowmobile. And though it’s physically possible to bring a car out onto the ice, Rochester’s waters typically don’t freeze deep enough to support that much weight, so state officials (and most of the fishermen I talked to) recommend that you leave your ride on shore. Also note that conditions can quickly change from safe to dangerous. Once this season Tim and Jeff Thomas were out on the ice with several other anglers, all crowded around a high-tech device called a flasher (it sends a signal, like sonar, through the water to show fishermen how close the fish are). “All of a sudden, there was 4” of water on top of the ice because of all the weight of us; the snow ice that was there was starting to cave in,” Tim Thomas says. “It just goes to show you… I mean, we had a good 4” of ice, but if it’s not the right kind and you get too much weight in one place, you can get into trouble.” While ice and snow go hand and hand for most of us, the latter is Kryptonite for ice fishermen. “As ice gets buried in snow, that snow acts like a blanket and insulator, and it diminishes the ice’s ability to form and its strength drastically,” Tim Thomas says. Other potential problems are underwater currents and springs that can thin the ice in places. “You don’t always know what’s happening underneath the ice,” he says. Redding tends to venture out onto smaller
waterways like the ones at Mendon Ponds Park and Cranberry Pond rather than the bigger ones. He says the ice on Sodus and Irondequoit bays is generally too inconsistent for him to risk it. “You can have 6” to 7” of ice in one spot and then 200 yards away, it’ll be open water,” he says. “That to me is just taboo.” Still, every year Redding and Tim Thomas say, someone falls through the ice. “They’re too eager to get out there, so they risk it,” Tim says. That’s why Matt Lochner, an avid ice fisherman who also works as a lieutenant for 16 CITY FEBRUARY 27 - MARCH 5, 2013

There are a couple of records coming out that I think are really good. There’s a band called Mount Moriah, on Merge, which is a great label. They’re an interesting band because they’re rooted in a lot of different [genres]. Their players are from punk and hardcore and all these crazy scenes, but it’s like an Americana, beautiful, soft record [“Miracle Temple” is out February 26]. What are your thoughts about music reality shows like “American Idol”? Tim Thomas places a tip-up on the ice. A tip-up consists of a small wooden frame and flag that is triggered when a fish takes the bait on a corresponding hook and line.
the Monroe County and Wayne County sheriff’s departments, says better safe than sorry. “It’s not worth putting yourself in danger,” Lochner says. “We’re equipped and trained to handle water rescues, but we never want to have to use those skills.” “I have — knock on wood — never fallen in,” says Tim Thomas. Neither has his brother, nor any other angler I came upon.
When “American Idol” first started, sometimes I’d be like, “God, these people aren’t that good. I heard someone at the local bar who was better than that.” But it’s like the ante’s been upped and [the contestants] are getting better and better. I think there really are some special vocalists coming out of those arenas. But it changes the perspective that I think people have of what it takes to make it. It’s like this one shot of instant fame when really, the people who have long careers work really hard and for a really long time — they build something. Even people in pop do it that way. So sometimes I think it just kind of sends the wrong message. You guys have seemingly done it all. What’s left to accomplish?
But they’ve all heard stories about that sort of thing happening so they make sure they are prepared. The Thomas brothers not only carry a 25-foot-long rope, but they also carry ice picks, which are handles with a 1” metal spike on them. They clip onto your jacket or you can keep them in your pocket, so in case you do fall through, you have something the dig into the ice to get yourself back out. What you wear ice fishing is almost — if not more — important than what you bring on the ice with you. I found that out the hard way. My standard snow boots, snow pants, parka, gloves, and my dorky hat with earflaps were no match for the long hours out on the ice. While the seasoned anglers didn’t even seem to notice the frigid temperatures, I had lost all sensation in my fingers, feet, and face after about an hour. Those guys are tough — but they’re also outfitted for it. Wool socks, long johns, pants, sweatshirts (yes, plural), and full snowsuits were all being used. The best way to keep yourself warm, aside from bundling up, is to use a shanty, continues on page 26
I think Emily and I just want to keep making records and try to hone our songwriting even more. And I’d like to see a more successfully integrated music festival, in terms of gender and race. I don’t know if I could put that together myself. We played one a long, long time ago called Gathering of the Tribes. It was Queen Latifah, The Cramps, Soundgarden, Indigo Girls, Sinead O’Connor…It was this crazy bill: people of color, different kinds of music. It was a great idea, but then it kind of went away. I think there are really big music festivals that do that over a weeklong period, but they’re still not as integrated as they could be. I’d love to see that in my lifetime.

JAZZ | VLATKOVICH TRYYO
INDIE ROCK | THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS
PUNK | THE QUEERS
West Coast trombonist extraordinaire Michael Vlatkovich has played with stars like Peggy Lee, Brian Setzer, and Bryan Adams. His skillful sliding has also enlivened the soundtracks of movies like “The Mask,” “Jingle All The Way,” and John Cassavetes’ “The Tempest.” But when Vlatkovich takes the reins, he prefers to improvise on the wild side with his own Vlatkovich Tryyo. With Jonathan Golove on electric cello and Damon Short on drums, the group has a sound as eclectic as its unlikely combination of instruments.
The founding members of They Might Be Giants have been creating and playing music together for 30 years. While the line-up of the rest of the band has changed since the move to a full band in the early 90’s, John Flansburgh and John Linnell have been the linchpins, overseeing the group’s sound and direction. The Giants have sold more than 4 million records, won two Grammys, and recorded children’s albums. The group is nothing if not prolific. The band’s upcoming album — its 16th — will be released on March 5. But before that, the outfit brings its indie rock to The German House for a show on March 1. Washington, D.C. band Vandaveer opens the show.
Despite several break-ups over the years, The Queers have been playing Ramones-inspired punk rock since the early 1980’s. And though the comparisons make perfect sense, the band adds its own harmony and pop polish twists. With close to 40 members having gone in and out of its ranks, guitarist/lead vocalist Joe Queer is the one constant in the band. Bill mates the Anderson Stingrays — purveyors of the mighty three-chord punk rock, Queers disciples, and one of my favorite new Rochester bands — add mucho buzz-saw chaos. The Stingrays’ debut “Rock ’n’ Roll Party in Space” was produced by Joe Queer. The band recently contributed a tune to the Screeching Weasel tribute “Screech Like a Weasel” and has recently released its “Goon Squad” EP. Teenage Bottlerocket and Masked Intruder also add to loud fun.

Karen Zacarías’ “The Book Club Play” began life in 2008 and has continued to be workshopped, allowing the writer to polish and refine her script. It’s now five years later, but the current production, currently on Geva’s Mainstage through March 17, still has the feeling of a rough draft that hasn’t quite gelled together. Despite its flaws, however, the show is always entertaining, and there are enough glimmers of the smart, funny show it wants to be (thanks to some smart, snappy direction and a pitch-perfect cast) to make it a worthy addition to Geva’s lineup. The play has the feel of a farce without the overly convoluted plot. In fact, the plot is rather simple: A group of friends who are members of an informal book club, agree to allow themselves to become the subjects of a documentary by a renowned international filmmaker who’s making a movie about the culture of book clubs. Their meetings will be filmed by several cameras, operated remotely by the director.
Knowing that they’re constantly being watched, the group members try in vain to present the best version of themselves. Things don’t go as planned and, with the cameras rolling, they find themselves behaving in ways that are utterly at odds with how they’d like to be portrayed on film. Naturally, it isn’t too long before secrets come out and revelations are made. The members of the club each fall into specific types: Ana (Jessica Wortham) is the snobby, tightly-wound leader of the group (though there’s a bit of contention over whether or not she was the one who actually started the club). Her husband Rob (Tom Coiner) is a bit lazy, never bothering to read the assigned books. Jen (Kristen Mengelkoch) is an awkward, lonely paralegal, hoping to move on from a scandal in her past. Will (John Gregorio) is a prissy museum curator who also happens to be a former boyfriend of Ana and best friend to Rob. And Lily (Brett Robinson), the newest addition to the group, is younger than the rest. She’s perky, hip, and just happens to be the only black member of the book club. She fits in, but can’t help occasionally feeling that she may have been brought in solely to add to the group’s diversity. All five actors are great, fleshing out their characters enough to make them feel convincing as real human beings. That’s no
small feat in this type of broad comedy, where performances have to be cranked up to eleven and every other line needs to be shouted. It is a definite strength of the script, however, that every character is given their chance to shine. As if there weren’t enough stress being under the watchful eye of the documentary cameras, discord abounds after certain members of the group decide that they’d like to shake things up by broadening the club’s focus from the stuffy, classical novels they’ve been reading and branch out to more contemporary, popular books. Like “Twilight.” Then Jen decides to bring a new member into the group: Alex, an excitable professor of literature from the local college. All these rapid changes force Ana to attempt to re-exert control over the group, causing chaos in the ranks. Despite the relative simplicity of the plot, Zacarías adds too many ingredients to the pot. The documentary plotline too often feels contrived and unnecessary, and the best scenes are the ones that ignore that premise entirely. It’s as though she didn’t trust that her characters and their problems were interesting enough on their own and needed to heighten the drama. Interspersed periodically throughout the story we see interviews with the other documentary subjects, everyone from a Secret Service agent to a retired sky-diving librarian, each describing the role that books have played in their life. On their own, these scenes are interesting, raising questions about why we need books and the way they can shape us as individuals. But in the context of the play, they have a tendency to stop things dead. There’s also a too tidy epilogue where everything has to be tied up in a neat little package, but that’s a relatively minor complaint. The play’s script touches on some interesting ideas, and by far the best scene in the show revolves around a lengthy, somewhat heated discussion that the group gets into during one meeting about the novel “Twilight.” The characters bounce off one another, and the dialogue crackles as they defend their opinions, arguing over what exactly makes something “literature” and whether it’s right to discount a work just because it’s popular. If a book means so much to millions of people, doesn’t that mean that there’s something worthwhile there, no matter how poorly written it may be? The conversation feels like one that might actually occur at a book club meeting, and it’s done in such an entertaining way, subtly sprinkling a few intellectual thoughts amongst the oneliners and pratfalls, that it’s the one time the play truly lives up to its potential.

FILM | DRYDEN THEATRE RE-OPENS
Local film fans have had an especially rough winter since the George Eastman House’s Dryden Theatre, the premier archival cinema in the area, has been closed for an extensive remodel. The good news is that the wait is over, and the revamped Dryden will open Saturday, March 2, with a screening of Alexander Payne’s beloved 2004 film “Sideways.” The even better news is that Payne himself — he also directed “The Descendants,” “About Schmidt,” and “Election” — will be on hand for the event to introduce “Sideways,” and to hold a Q&A after the film. Dryden patrons will find much to be excited about with the renovations. A new, darker color scheme will make the space feel more intimate, the seats have been replaced with much more comfortable chairs, and a new digital projector has been installed, allowing the Dryden to continue to show the best in cinema in a variety of formats. Saturday’s events kick off at 5:30 p.m. with a first look at the renovated theater, and then a dinner in the Eastman House featuring wines inspired by “Sideways.” Tickets to this gala dinner cost $200. The screening begins at 8 p.m., and tickets for the film and Q&A cost $25-$30. The Eastman House is located at 900 East Ave. Additional events will be held this spring to celebrate the Dryden reopening, including a visit by Oscar-nominated director James Ivory on April 6.

Like the movies themselves, the haunted house, a favorite real estate of generations of horror, has come a long way from the gloomy castle or the dark Victorian pile; directors now relocate that spooky domicile to the more recognizable suburbs that proliferate and spread their interchangeable blandness across our great nation.

lives in that nice three-bedroom, two-and-a half bath ranch house next door. “The Amityville Horror” may have initiated that historic move, but the three versions of “Poltergeist” probably transformed it into a fixed element of the genre. In its particular examination of contemporary suburban life, the new movie, “Dark Skies,” blends horror and science fiction while commenting on some aspects of the way we now live. Lacy and Daniel Barrett (Keri Russell and Josh Hamilton) live in a typical house on a typical street, where everything looks distressingly like everything else. The couple, along with their young sons Jesse (Dakota Goyo) and Sam (Kadan Rockett) face some familiar difficulties — Daniel has been laid off from his unspecified job, which appears to involve architecture, and Lacy works at the daunting task of selling real estate in a down market; 13-year-old Jesse, meanwhile, is hanging around with the wrong kids and dealing with the problems of puberty. All of these family issues erupt into the open when the Barretts start experiencing a series

of strange and frightening phenomena. On several occasions an invisible intruder vandalizes their house: stealing food from the refrigerator, constructing a stack of canned goods, removing all their photographs from their frames. When they inform the police, the cops naturally disbelieve their story about some mysterious personage and blame the incidents on their children. The frights intensify as a flock of hundreds of birds crashes against the walls and windows of the house, and both children, and eventually both parents, suffer seizures and lapses of consciousness and memory. Lacy finally convinces Daniel of the danger and persuades him to accompany her to a consultation with Edwin Pollard (J.K. Simmons), a conspiracy nut and self-proclaimed expert on such phenomena. After hearing their story, he explains the nature of the menace and the reason for the attacks, a most dispiriting analysis. Pollard tells the Barretts that their attackers are aliens, “the Grays,” (really) from some other planet, who have inhabited the Earth for many years, randomly choosing human families to study and experiment on like laboratory specimens. Lacy and Daniel resolve to defend their children against the aliens, so they board up all the windows, arousing the mockery of their neighbors, buy a large, aggressive dog, and arm themselves with a serious shotgun for what turns out to be a climactic confrontation.

channels, Pollard’s thesis explains a great many mysteries, from power outages to juvenile allergies to unexplained and unsolved disappearances. But the Grays, who only appear as attenuated, two-dimensional, spidery shadows in darkened rooms, suggest some other internal threat, the disintegration of the nuclear family, the concrete manifestation of all the tension and pain in the Barretts’ marriage, their troubled children, even the financial burden they can barely sustain. The sense of an unknown terror lurking in some sunny, placid neighborhood contrasts nicely with the familiar peaceful community settings and the smug illusion of comfort and conformity in the safe environs of the subdivision. That the terror grows from within appropriately suits the notion of a superficial and deluded belief in the security and solidity of the average American home in the average American town, while in reality forces beyond the normal threaten chaos and loss, financial disaster, and emotional devastation. The movie constantly shifted between the actual events the Barretts experience and the family’s frequent nightmares, as if no barrier existed between reality and dream, and the two worlds fuse in horror. While the whole family faces a dreadful menace, in the grand tradition of the form, the children are the most vulnerable, the most likely victims: youth and innocence provide no defense against dangers from without and within, which summarizes the despair at the heart of “Dark Skies.”
There’s no denying that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has come a long way from his days as a pro wrestler for the WWE. Since making the transition to film acting over ten years ago, he’s appeared in dozens of movies and has always maintained an immensely likeable screen presence. He’s got good looks, charisma to spare, and a personality that seems tailor-made for the action-comedy genre. But despite his efforts, his film career has never really caught fire, even with the success of 2011’s “Fast Five.” His latest film, “Snitch” is something of a departure for him: Despite its action-heavy advertising, the film is actually more a social justice drama than anything else, and one that allows Johnson to flex some acting muscle in a way he’s never quite been asked to before. Johnson plays John Matthews, owner of a small, successful construction company. Divorced,

John can afford to live in a gorgeous McMansion with his second wife and their young daughter, while his estranged ex-wife and teenage son, Jason (Rafi Gavron) have to live a bit more scrupulously and struggle to make due on their own. When Jason is arrested for possession of a significant amount of ecstasy tablets and charged with drug trafficking, John feels an immediate sense of guilt for not being more of a father to his son. He’s informed by his son’s lawyer that, because of the country’s harsh drug laws, Jason faces a sentence of ten years in prison. John, knowing his son won’t survive a prison sentence, is desperate to find a way to help his son in any way he can. Jason refuses to accept a deal to reduce his sentence, which would involve him setting up his friends to help prosecutors make more arrests, so his father uses his connections to get a meeting with high-powered, conservative district attorney, Joanne Keeghan (Susan Sarandon, in a typically solid, if somewhat one-dimensional performance) to make a new deal. John will infiltrate a drug ring himself, using his company’s trucks to transport for them, and then deliver the dealers over to the police. Searching through his employee records for any ex-convicts who might be able to provide him with the right connections, John settles on Daniel James (Jon Bernthal of TV’s “The Walking Dead”), a new hire with a record that includes arrests for drug distribution. Daniel now has a family, and has left his past behind him, but when John offers him twenty thousand dollars just to make the necessary introductions, he finds it hard to say no. The film is surprisingly frank about the
not entirely heroic things John is willing to do to save his son; it’s made clear that Daniel is a good man doing his best to turn his life around, and the way that John manipulates him into walking straight back into the world he’s trying to get away from isn’t shied away from. Though it’s hampered somewhat by a less than plausible premise (John is able to earn the trust of the local dealers awfully quickly) and a tendency toward self-importance, “Snitch” works remarkably well. The script, credited to Justin Haythe (“Revolutionary Road”) and the film’s director, Ric Roman Waugh, is heavy-handed with its message, that the “mandatory minimum” drug laws aren’t working and only result in the arrest of naive kids and first-time offenders. But it’s admirable that the film has something on its mind aside from gunfights and explosions, which is more than I expected walking into the theater. The middle section of the film, in which John and Daniel go about making themselves indispensable to local drug traffickers is the film’s strongest, even if it all happens a bit too easily (“Breaking Bad,” this ain’t). It’s almost a shame that the story devolves into a by-the-numbers action film by its end, with shootouts and car chases taking the place of a real dramatic resolution. Sure, they’re competently executed and exciting to watch, but it betrays everything that came before. The script makes a point to show early on that John Matthews isn’t a tough guy hero, but then proceeds to turn him into exactly that. We know that Johnson can make with the action, but with this film he proves he’s got some dramatic chops as well. And if this role isn’t enough for him to transition into a true movie star, well, there’s always “Fast and Furious 6.”

or small tent. Shanties range from small one-man getups to fully pimped-out eightperson huts. “You could have a serious party going on in one of those — a big mirror ball going ‘round the top,” say Tim Thomas. In all seriousness, even the smallest refuge from the wind and the cold can make a difference. “Let’s face it, though — the weather’s just nicer in the spring and summer,” says Jeff Thomas. Still, there are thousands of anglers across the state willing to brave the frigid temperatures for bragging rights, and if there’s the option, some prizes. That’s why the Thomas brothers started the first New York State Ice Pro-Am Tournament series this year. The tournament included events at Chatauqua Lake earlier this month, Sodus Bay last weekend, and one more on March 7-8 on Tupper Lake in the Adirondacks. If you want to get into ice fishing, head
to nearly any sporting goods store and be ready to drop about $75 to $100 on basic equipment and bait. Once you’ve got the equipment, though, the cost levels off to about $15 to $30 a trip when you factor in gas and travel costs. Jigging rods (about $5 to $15 for the rod and another buck or two for the jigs or lures) or tip-ups are your cheapest option, running about $10 to $30. Automatic fishermen run about $70 to $80 per set. State law allows up to five tip-ups and two jigging rods per angler on any given excursion. You also need a license to fish. A season-long (open-water or ice-fishing) license for New York state residents costs $14. For information on how to get your license, visit dec.ny.gov. And take a buddy with you — preferably someone who’s got some know-how. A quick online search will turn up dozens of local sportsman clubs, often called “rod and gun” clubs.

the nation, but plug your location into the search bar and there’s no shortage of anglers ready to take the bait and take you out to try your hand at ice fishing. I found that out first-hand at the Victory Baptist Church Sportsmen’s Ice Fishing Derby, when some of the anglers I was interviewing suddenly handed me the fishing line and egged me on. I started to pull on the line, but it didn’t seem like I was reeling in anything. Then, a swift jerk on the other end. “Oh! There he is!” The other fisherman coached me along. “If he wants to go, let him go a little bit.” After about a 30-second dance of pulling and waiting, waiting a bit more, then pulling again, I could see the head of the fish just below the water’s surface through the small hole in the ice. I shrieked, but everyone else was clapping and cheering me on. “Now you gotta hold it for the picture,” the fisherman said. I’ll admit, I was a bit squeamish about a) taking my gloves off in the frigid temperatures, and b) holding the still living, wriggling fish with my bare hands. But soon, a small crowd had gathered to see what came out of the ice. So, with a little coaching from Tim Thomas, I picked the fish up just behind the gills and showed it off. After it was weighed and measured (I didn’t even come close to placing in the tournament), I gently slipped him back through the hole in the ice. The experience heightened my respect for the people who tackle this sport for fun. The camaraderie, that sense of respect for fellow anglers, and that willingness to teach someone new is part of the thrill of ice fishing. “We’ve got to keep people excited about ice fishing,” Tim Thomas says. “Most ice anglers learned from their parents or friends, so if we can keep that momentum going, we can keep the sport going and growing.”

This sun-filled and spacious, eat-in kitchen has gorgeous granite counter tops, a gas stove, an elegant, deep sink and abundant cupboards for storage. Currently, the owners use the dining room as a den, choosing to use the side sunroom as a bright, and cozy dining space. At the front
of the home, through the arched opening, is the traditional living room, complete with large windows and the incredible original fireplace with built-ins. Both doors from the living room are impressive original wood and leaded glass. Upstairs are three sunlit, good-sized bedrooms, with the same beautiful pine floors as the first level. The gorgeously updated main bathroom adds a spa feel to the historic charm of the rest of the home. Outside you will find a detached two-car garage and a backyard that has both an ample grassy area as well as a stone patio perfect for outdoor dining! The enclosed porch off the back of the home is perfect for three season usage. This immaculately maintained home at 70 Merchants Rd. is situated on a quiet, serene street near the Browncroft Rose Garden, but offers the incredible convenience of a central location. With I-590 so close, the entire city is just minutes away. With 1561 square feet, this Browncroft gem is listed at $159,900 and is looking for new owners to appreciate and love all of its historic details while enjoying its modern upgrades.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD Officials at England’s 12th-century St. Peter’s Church in Seaford, East Sussex, which is renowned for its eerie quiet, created a 30-minute CD recently of near-total silence, first as a small-scale fundraising project, but later for general sales (since word-of-mouth had attracted orders from as far away as Ghana). Those who have heard it said they could make out only the occasional squeaking of footsteps on the wooden floor (and the very distant hum of passing cars). Said one admiring parishioner, “People sometimes like to sit down and just have a bit of peace and quiet.”
Government in Action
— France has seen its wolf population gradually increase from near-extinction in the 1930s, but still classifies the predator as a “protected” species. However, sheep farmers increasingly complain that wolves’ attacks are reducing their herds. Therefore, in a recently proposed “National Wolf Plan,” the government boldly gave headline-writers around the world material for rejoicing: a national program to “educate” the wolves. Individual wolves known to have attacked sheep would be caught, marked and briefly detained, with the hope that they would learn their lesson from that trauma and from then on, pass up sheep and turn instead to rabbits, boar and deer. (Said one critic, “You might as well try to educate a shark.”) — Updates: The Treasury Department’s inspector general for tax administration revealed in January that twice as many fraudulent income tax refunds were paid to inmates in 2011 (173,000) as for the tax year 2010. However, the IRS claimed that the fraudulent returns it did manage to stop totaled $2.5 billion
(almost half of which was disingenuously claimed by two inmates). Also, the Department of Health and Human Service’s inspector general revealed in January that Medicare was illegally billed for $120 million from 2009 to 2011 for services used by inmates and illegal immigrants -- neither category of which is authorized to use Medicare. — Recurring Theme: As of January, New York City music teacher Aryeh Eller, 46, has almost reached a milestone in his battle with the Board of Education. Soon, he will have earned a million dollars in salary and benefits since the board removed him from the classroom 13 years ago and dispatched him to a light-duty “rubber room” after complaints of fondling and sexual harassment in the one year that he actually taught. An arbitrator had found insufficient evidence for his termination, but the board refuses to let him back in the classroom, fearing he is a danger to students.
People With Issues
Michael Selleneit, 54, pleaded guilty in January to several charges including attempted murder in an October 2011 attack on a neighbor, who Selleneit had declared was raping Selleneit’s wife -- “telepathically.” In fact, police said, Selleneit had been making that claim “for years,” though he had not taken action until October 2011. His wife, Meloney, was also charged, as she allegedly goaded her husband on, telling him to “go for it,” and even supplying the gun. Both spouses have been extensively examined by mental health professionals, and it turns out that Michael is the saner of the two. He had been ruled “competent” to stand trial, but Meloney has so far not been.
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 29 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Unpredictable, emotional mood swings will be an issue when it comes to love, romance and dating. Don’t invite someone into your life who shows possessive qualities, and don’t cling to someone who isn’t showing enough interest. You have to look for someone with a similar mindset. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You will have plenty of romantic opportunity, but choosing who is best for you won’t be so easy. Expect potential partners to exaggerate or mislead you as to who they are and what they are all about. Don’t assume you are
being told the truth. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Deception, disillusionment and secret affairs are prevalent and must be considered if you plan to engage in an intimate relationship. Ulterior motives are likely to be behind the attention you are receiving. Slow down and get to know anyone showing interest before becoming involved. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’ll be flooded with attention and will have your choice of partners if you travel, socialize or join interest groups. Open your heart and share your personal plans and intentions for the future. The person heading down a similar
path will be your best choice. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Expand your circle of friends and enjoy the company of lots of potential lovers before you decide to become up close and personal with one partner. Back away from anyone looking for a commitment, promise or contract. Freedom to come and to go as you please is necessary. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Overreacting, overindulging and overspending will all deter your chance to find the right lover. Avoid an entanglement with a colleague or someone with the potential to negatively influence your financial situation. Ask
questions and let friendship grow before becoming intimate. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Emotions will be close to the surface, leading you to believe that someone you meet is your perfect match. Don’t believe everything you are told or be too trusting of someone wanting too much too fast. Bide your time and trust in a good friend’s judgment. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’ll be impossible to resist. Take a look around -- the person you feel most drawn to will reciprocate. Love is on the rise, and utilizing your mysterious manner and unusual approach to life and love will attract
someone as unique as you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t jump into a relationship. You’ll attract partners who boast about what they have to offer or who try to belittle or control you. Stick to partners with whom you share a history. Partners who are excessive verbally, physically, emotionally or financially must be avoided. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Revisit an old partner, and find out if there is anything left to salvage. Maturity coupled with being at a different stage in your life will help you either move on or get back together. Either way, it will help to end the drought
that you’ve encountered. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Refuse to let anyone limit you. Freedom is important if you want your relationship with someone to last. If trust issues are present, you are inviting the wrong partners into your life. Know what you want before you engage in a relationship that is too confining. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Love is in the stars. Size up where you are personally, financially and emotionally, and consider what you need in your romantic life to compliment what you already have. Honesty, integrity and working toward the same goals will lead to a long-term commitment.
