What do we owe black men?

So, we don’t owe the black man anything? We don’t owe him anything because we only see blackness when he walks through the door? We don’t owe him anything when his little boys will grow up to live in our jails? We don’t owe him anything when he can only hope his son will live to be an adult? When black on black crime is only his problem? When his son’s access to college is more difficult if not impossible? When some police in our communities target him? When we don’t have black teachers to teach our black children? When his DNA is covered in the centuriesold blood of hangings and explosions and beatings? We don’t owe him anything when Bernie Sanders, who calls himself a socialist, leaves him out of the conversation? When Hillary Clinton does not mention racism as an ingrained evil in our society, pulling us all down? When no Republican candidate talks about black lives? When the Supreme Court reverses almost everything that historically has been done to improve his life: reversing basic tenants of the Voting Rights Act, allowing voting laws that discriminate against the poor and the elderly, failing to correct the problems of district gerrymandering, and destroying affirmative action? When the trickle-down of Reaganomics emblazes a larger path to poverty for the already disenfranchised? When his history is ingrained in that which we do not want to discuss? We don’t 2 CITY

Praise for RPO’s upcoming season

I think next year’s concert schedule, like this year’s, presents an appealing, thoughtful balance of familiar and less familiar music. I am especially pleased with two selections: Ron Nelson’s “Savannah River Holiday” and the “Prelude and Quadruple Fugue” by Alan Hovhaness. Both had their premiere performances in Rochester, in the 50’s, at the American Composers’ Concerts. Quite a good number of American orchestral works had their first performances here. Now the orchestra will have a chance to blow the dust off of some good music that’s not played that much anymore and to shed light on a fascinating bit of local history as well. Our music director should be commended for bringing us such exciting, creative programming initiatives. DAVID BYRNE

Beethoven 7 is one of my favorite pieces of workout music. The fourth movement gets you going on the treadmill or rowing machine! Just when you need it! ELIZABETH RICE

I am so excited for the new season. Ward Stare is an amazing conductor! PATTY SAYERS PATTERSON

The real reason Duffy left Albany?

Bob Duffy was on the Dem ticket to deliver Upstate votes, which he did. I’d bet Duffy saw the Moreland Commission train wreck coming and decided to bail out. I can’t blame him. Besides, I don’t think Bob Duffy bought in to the liberal Cuomo agenda. BART

March is National Women's History Month

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER

Could Scalia’s death offer a chance for healing? Antonin Scalia’s death may have been a surprise, but Congressional Republicans’ swift declaration – that Obama shouldn’t nominate a replacement – certainly wasn’t. Voters should “have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court justice”? They did, when they elected Barack Obama president. Twice. He was elected to serve for four years, not three. If he shouldn’t appoint justices now, should he give up all of his other duties? I suppose Democrats would have done the same thing if a Republican were in the White House. It’s not so much a Republican thing as it is one more example of the deep division in Washington. And that’s a reflection of how deeply divided Americans are. Obama’s not taking Republicans’ advice, so we have an interesting year ahead of us. Seems like Republicans are taking a big risk by digging in their heels. What if Obama nominates someone they’ve already approved for a lower court? Won’t they have a hard time insisting that that person isn’t qualified? And if they insist on delaying the nomination until the country has a new president, they risk having that president be a Democrat – and having a Democraticcontrolled Senate vote on the nominee. They could have far less voice in choosing the next justice than they have right now. They’ll also have ramped up the partisanship in Congress, fed the division and anger in the country, and further eroded the public’s trust in government. Earlier last week, before Scalia’s death, Obama gave a lengthy speech to the Illinois General Assembly specifically addressing those issues. And the speech contains a good citizenship lesson for all of us. Reflecting on his own days in the Illinois Assembly, Obama noted that because legislators had a chance to get to know one another, they could become friends and could disagree without being hostile. And by talking with constituents, Obama said, he learned “that if you were willing to listen, it was possible to bridge a lot of differences.” He learned that if politicians “just approached our national politics the same way that the American people approach their daily lives – at the workplace, at the Little League game, at church or the synagogue – with common sense, and a commitment to fair play and basic courtesy, that there is no problem that we couldn’t solve together.”

The Republicans’ reaction is one more example of the deep division in Washington – and in the country.”

For the country to prosper, Obama said, we have to have “citizenship and a sense that we are one.” But the “poisonous political climate” of today, he warned, pushes people away and lets the most extreme voices and interests take over. Harsh disagreement, corruption in politics, deeply polarizing differences aren’t new, Obama said, citing Teapot Dome scandals, Watergate, Vietnam, the Civil War. “We’ve been arguing since our founding over the proper size and role of government, the meaning of individual freedom and equality; over war and peace, and the best way to give all of our citizens opportunity,” he said. “We’ve always gone through periods when our democracy seems stuck,” he said. “And when that happens, we have to find a new way of doing business.” We have to do that now, Obama said, and we have to start by acknowledging that we have a serious problem: “the nature and the extent of the polarization.” A willingness to listen, a sense of fair play, common sense, basic courtesy: not a bad set of guidelines for elected leaders and candidates. Not a bad list of ideals for the country. But in this political climate, distrust, anger, and outright insults have become the norm. Scalia’s death, and his open seat on the Supreme Court, could give the members of the Senate of both major parties a chance to show real leadership by working together on this vacancy. They could change the tone of discourse in Congress, and set an example for all of us. Sadly, we’re seeing no sign of that happening.

LDC case is done

Daniel Lynch, the final defendant in a bid-rigging case centered on county-linked local development corporations, took a plea deal. He faced 18 charges, far more than any of the other defendants, and pleaded guilty to four felonies. Lynch will likely get jail time when he’s sentenced on April 8.

Chairs clash over cash

The chairs of the Monroe County Republican Party and county Democratic Committee got into a backand-forth over contributions the parties received from people and companies connected to a bid-rigging case. Both chairs criticized the other party for taking the contributions. The difference: the county GOP received vast sums more than the Dems.

LGBT radio program debuts Brian Hurlburt’s obsession with radio programming began when he was a child. He and a neighborhood friend pretended to have their own show where they interviewed each other and played their favorite music. After a long career in broadcasting, Hurlburt now creates and hosts his dream program in Rochester. Hurlburt and co-host Michael Lill have a music and talk radio program geared toward Rochester’s LGBT community. Rainbow ROC is on Mondays on WAYO 104.3 FM from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. The program can also be accessed online at wayofm.org and through the app TuneIn.

Hurlburt says that he plans to pull from many music genres, including rock, pop, country, blues, jazz, and a little Broadway. “The four things I look for in music are LGBT artists, an LGBT band member, artists and bands that are supportive of the LGBT community, and sometimes artists that I just like,” he says. He is especially interested in bringing attention to lesser known LGBT artists, he says, such as Steve Grand, a country singer and model, and Toya Delazy, a South African singer and musician. Lill drives much of the talk segment

of the show and says that news and events important to Rochester’s LGBT community are priorities, but that they will talk about everything from health to politics. Their biggest concern is making sure that Rainbow ROC is inclusive and relevant to every segment of the LGBT community, they say, and welcoming to straight listeners, too. Rainbow ROC is not the city’s first gay-themed radio program. “Lesbian Nation” and “Green Thursday” aired in the 1970’s. The latter’s title was a historical reference to an era when gay men wore something green to discretely reveal their identity to other gay men.

“Ideally, the town, school district, or both will find a way to acquire and preserve the golf courses, or the community will find a buyer who will keep the land for recreational use. It’d be even better if Dolomite donated the land to the town” [ KATE MCARDLE, PENFIELD RESIDENT ]

DEVELOPMENT | BY JEREMY MOULE

Penfield weighs options in sale of golf courses The Dolomite Group’s plan to sell two Penfield golf courses caught town officials by surprise and has them scrambling to exert some control over the future of the properties. The Town Board will consider enacting a temporary moratorium on development of the land at an upcoming meeting. Dolomite put Shadow Lakes and Shadow Pines on Atlantic Avenue up for sale last month. It’s marketing the 200acre Shadow Pines course for residential development, but trying to sell Shadow Lakes, also 200 acres, as an operational golf course. Most people in Penfield assumed that the properties would always stay golf courses, says Penfield Supervisor Tony LaFountain. The moratorium, which would last a minimum of six months to a year, would give the town time to pursue options for the properties, he says. It could alter zoning laws, LaFountain says, pursue a buyer or buyers who would continue operating the sites as golf courses or other recreational uses, try to convince Dolomite to donate the land, or explore the purchase of the property. The Town Board will put together a committee of residents and officials to work through the options, he says.

In a letter to Penfield officials, a Dolomite executive says that the company is willing to sell the land to the town. The properties are zoned to allow residential use, and half-acre lots, LaFountain says. And residents say they’ve heard that a developer wants to build as many as 290 houses on the Shadow Pines land. But Kate McArdle, who is part of a group of town residents organizing against development of the land, says that the courses are essential green spaces in the center of Penfield. Residents worry that a large housing development could exacerbate existing traffic congestion in the area, she says, place a substantial burden on the Penfield school district, and cause environmental damage. Town officials echo those concerns. They’re also worried about the impact on storm and sanitary sewers, as well as other infrastructure, LaFountain says. Ideally, the town, school district, or both will find a way to acquire and preserve the properties, McArdle says, or the community will find a buyer who will keep the land for recreational use. It’d be even better if Dolomite donated the land to the town, she says.

At minimum, the town should revise zoning laws to limit the number of houses that can be built on the sites, she says. A public hearing on the moratorium will take place at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 2, at Penfield Town Hall, 3100 Atlantic Avenue. The Town Board will vote on the moratorium during its March 16 meeting.

Shooter seminar Once you may have worried about getting caught stealing pens from the office supply closet. Now you have to worry about getting shot at your desk. In a depressing reflection of the state of the country, two area business groups will hold a seminar next month on how to respond if someone walks into your office with a grudge and a gun. The active shooter seminar is from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, March 9, at Nazareth College’s Callahan Theatre Arts Center, 4245 East Avenue. The program will cover the steps that businesses can take to prepare in case of an active shooter. It is organized by the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce and the Better Business Bureau of Upstate New York and is free and open to all. You can register online at greaterrochesterchamber.com. Chamber spokesperson Dan Smith says that interest in the program is high; the chamber received about 100 responses the same day it put out the invitation. Presentations will be made by representatives of the Rochester Police Department, Monroe County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team, FBI, and the state Division of Homeland Security Emergency Services. US Attorney William Hochul will make opening remarks. A panel discussion and question-and-answer period follows the presentations.

EDUCATION | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

Nothing ‘interim’ about Cimusz’s agenda Interim school superintendents are often thought of as placeholders: people who keep the lights on and the buses running until a permanent leader is found. That’s not a description that fits Linda Cimusz, who was thrust into the interim job with the Rochester school district after a health crisis felled the school board’s pick. Though understated and reserved, Cimusz has a thorough grasp of the district after only a few weeks on the job. At this point in her career, Cimusz is what you might call an education interventionist. She gets “911” calls to help struggling school districts that find themselves without leadership. Considering that her administrative experience dates back to the 1990’s, it’s not as if Cimusz hasn’t had opportunities to be a permanent superintendent. But says she’s never wanted the job. “My eyes have always been on teaching and learning,” she says. “When you’re superintendent, you can’t possibly get down to the teacher-student level.” Cimusz has an incredibly full agenda. The board handed her a list of priorities that include finalizing the budget for the 20162017 school year, supporting the second phase of the schools modernization program, negotiating labor agreements for teachers and administrators, and developing plans for receivership of schools. The latter are low-achieving schools identified by the State Education Department. Under a new state law, superintendents can make bold decisions to improve these schools, or the SED can intervene.

“There are many balls in the air here and I don’t want to drop anything,” Cimusz says. But she says that she also doesn’t want to go off on a tangent that makes the job more difficult for her successor. Cimusz, who was involved with receivership in Buffalo’s schools, says that Rochester is ahead of Buffalo because some of the remedies that superintendents can use under receivership, such as forming an educational partnership with a college or university and expanded learning, are already happening here. But Cimusz says that she wants more flexibility from teachers and administrators during labor negotiations; it’s necessary to improve student achievement, she says, and to reduce the number of schools in receivership. She says that she’ll keep up the districtwide push to improve attendance and reading proficiency: initiatives that began about three years ago. Like many educators who work in urban school districts, Cimusz is especially concerned about students developing reading and language skills as early as possible. She’s encouraged by the district’s pre-kindergarten program for 4 year olds, she says, and its more recent effort to enroll 3 year olds. She’s also encouraged by the reception she’s received from teachers and principals. “I haven’t talked to one person who is discouraged,” she says. “No one has said to me, ‘There’s nothing else we can do.’ It’s just the opposite.”

HEALTH | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

Childhood trauma shown to have long-lasting impact Acing an exam is usually a good thing, but when it involves research into adverse childhood experiences, it’s a very different matter. These experiences can have serious consequences on children’s performance in school. About 200 health and education professionals met last week at Monroe Community College to learn more about research into adverse childhood experiences, exposure, and how that trauma influences development and behavior. An ACE refers to a potentially harmful or traumatic experience in the early years of life such as sexual abuse, being a witness to violence, homelessness, substance abuse in the home, or parental divorce. For example, in the updated report “Monroe County Youth Risk Behavior 6 CITY

FEBRUARY 17-23, 2016

Survey” from the Monroe County Health Department, 23 percent of students in the county who were surveyed answered yes when asked if they have “ever lived with anyone who was an alcoholic, problem drinker, used illegal street drugs or prescription drugs to get high, or was a problem gambler.” The health department surveyed more than 1,800 students ages 13 to 18 throughout Monroe County during the 2014-2015 school year. The students were asked a series of questions about potentially traumatic experiences. According to the report, 21 percent have had someone in their household go to jail or prison; 19 percent said that they have witnessed someone get shot, stabbed, or beaten in their neighborhood; and 42 percent

said that they do not live with both parents. The theory driving the research is that children’s brains are still developing and when they’re stressed, they can’t learn. Research shows that more than 50 percent of students who are failing in school have four or more adverse experiences. Higher ACE scores can mean permanent problems with memory, reduction in problem-solving ability, and increased defiance and fighting. And that’s just the beginning. ACE research began in the 1990’s after doctors probed patients who had certain health conditions about their childhood experiences. They found that exposure to adverse childhood experiences increases the risk of alcoholism, depression, heart disease, cancer,

and suicide. Six or more experiences can reduce life expectancy by as much as 20 years, according to research that has been duplicated multiple times. Nancy Sung-Shelton, who has long been a community activist and child advocate, took the discussion one step further last week and talked about the adverse impact of discrimination based on class, race, sexual orientation, and gender identity. Children learn to mask their pain because in some communities exposing their emotional trauma is seen as a sign of weakness, she said, and can put them in danger of physical harm. “A lot of these children do not believe they will make it past 21,” Sung-Shelton said.

Babies can’t talk, but they have a lot to share about how our brains develop

CHILD DEVELOPMENT | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

A

melia Smith sits on the floor of a newly remodeled wing of the University of Rochester’s department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences. The 8-month old wears a headband of cottony roses, and tiny bubbles form in the corner of her mouth. She’s completely entranced by the commotion around her. Though few adults in the room can resist oohing and aww-ing, little Amelia is not there to be fawned over. She’s there to work. Researchers at the UR’s Baby Lab want to know what she’s thinking, what she’s learned so far in her young life, and how she learned it. But there’s a problem: Amelia can’t talk yet. Like her older sisters, Adeline, 4, and Eloise, 5, Amelia is a research participant. She and her mother, Andra Smith, are taken into a small room where they sit together in an area resembling a dark dressing room. It’s quartered off with a curtain that looks like a black robe. Directly in front of Amelia is a computer screen. Lab manager Holly Palmeri, who is on the other side of the curtain, faces a wall of computer screens. The study, which will measure Amelia’s attention, begins with Amelia watching a small, red, emoji-like character moving vertically on the screen. The sound of a baby rattle is in the 8 CITY

FEBRUARY 17-23, 2016

background and as the character continues moving up and down, the rattling switches to a squeaking sound. Amelia doesn’t take her eyes off the moving image. She is mesmerized for about four minutes. When Amelia finally looks away from the screen, Palmeri interrupts the moving character with soft music and starts the program from the beginning. Amelia becomes engrossed again and at one point she gets so excited that she bursts into laughter and reaches for the character. Then she abruptly looks away again. The process repeats several times until it’s obvious that Amelia’s interest has shifted and that she’s getting restless. Amelia is one of about 15,000 children observed by UR researchers since the Rochester Baby Lab was formed in 1984 by Richard Aslin, a professor and the lab’s director. On average, most of the children, newborns to 12 year olds, visit the lab a total of three to four times for each study, he says. Most visits take less than an hour. The studies can last from three months to nine months. The lab, with its mix of peach and what Aslin calls toothpaste green walls, is a stark contrast to the rest of the university’s psych department, which is decidedly neutral.

There’s a large playhouse to one side of the room, complete with working windows and a door big enough for children to walk through. It’s a major attraction for toddlers and slightly older children. The lab has little difficulty finding volunteers, Aslin says. Parents of babies born at Strong and

Highland hospitals receive a letter shortly after their children are born asking if they’d like to participate in various studies. Most parents aren’t afraid of the research, Aslin says, because at least one parent will be present and there’s no diagnostic component to it. Parents are paid a nominal amount for their time. Safety and privacy are critical to everyone involved, Aslin says. “All of the experiments, the design, the entire project has to be approved by the Research Subjects Review Board, which operates out of the University of Rochester Medical Center,” says Celeste Kidd, an assistant professor and researcher. “It’s a governmentmandated review board that makes sure that we’re behaving ethically.” Andra Smith knew about the Baby Lab because she’s a UR graduate and says that she likes the idea of participating in research that may help children. After Amelia finishes with her part in the study, she returns to the lobby where one of her older sisters is enjoying the play house. “Really, the hardest part about this whole thing is leaving,” Andra Smith says.

Research involving young children is not new. There’s always been a subcomponent of the field of psychology interested in early childhood development, Aslin says, and the research is frequently associated with schools of education. “There were some famous labs in Germany back in the 1800’s and there was one at Yale that went on for years in the 1930’s and ‘40’s,” he says. “But most of that work was done on children who were 3 years old and up, children who could talk.” More than mere curiosity drives the research, he says. “Imagine you’re a parent,” he says. “The first thing you want to know is whether your child is normal, whatever that means.” Researchers needed to establish baselines before credible comparisons could be made. But there were no tools to work with babies, Aslin says, other than just watching them. “If you wanted to understand how kids learned to walk, you turned on the camera and recorded what they did,” he says. “To learn how kids acquired language, you turned on a bunch of tape recorders and recorded what they said.” But researchers began to see a gap in childhood development, Aslin says, because babies learn some amazingly sophisticated things much earlier than when they start to walk and talk, which is generally somewhere around 12 months. “In that first year of life, they are acquiring a lot of information,” he says. “But we didn’t really understand what they knew.” Although adults tend to take talking and walking for granted, Aslin says, both are monumental achievements in terms of child development. “There are about 150 muscles in your throat that have to work together in just the right way

The issue hasn’t been which questions researchers want to ask babies. The challenge is finding ways that babies can answer them. to produce an intelligible sound,” he says. “In order to produce a behavior, you have to have already processed information. You have to learn something before you can control that behavior. It’s a pretty complicated thing to acquire.” The same is true for walking, says Michael Goldstein, director of Cornell University’s Behavioral Analysis of Beginning Years Lab. He says that for an infant learning to walk, leg strength is a big issue. It’s a lot like having a weight connected to a large spring, he says. “Watch a baby on their back and you’ll see them kick,” Goldstein says. “And they can do that because there’s no weight on them.” The issue isn’t which questions researchers want to ask babies, Goldstein says. The challenge is finding ways that babies can answer them. His lab has drawn on Cornell’s bird research, which is some of the most extensive in the world. “It’s been really helpful,” he says. “There are a lot of similarities between the way birds learn to sing and babies learn to talk.” Breakthroughs in research coupled with

advances in technology since the 1990’s have led to an explosion in the field of infant research, says the UR’s Aslin. Prior to the 1960’s, there were maybe 10 research labs in the world studying infants, he says. Now many major universities have research facilities devoted to some aspect of the field.

Sophisticated equipment to track eye movement, heart rate, and brain activity are used in many labs, including the UR’s. Most of the research is funded through grants. UR’s baby lab is largely funded through grants from the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health, as well as local and national private foundations, Aslin says. Research across the field tends to fall into distinct categories. “There’s all sorts of medical research around autism for one example,” Aslin says. “There’s a lot of work going on right now that involves trying to diagnose autism many months before it is typically diagnosed at around 2 to 3 years of age.” If the diagnosis could occur at around 9 months, Aslin says, it may provide an opportunity for more effective treatment. Education is another line of research. Aslin and Kidd are particularly interested in how children learn and how their research findings could impact curriculum and classroom instruction. And Kidd says that there’s a huge set of questions out there about how our cognitive system works. Adults can walk into a house they’ve never visited, for example, and figure out where the kitchen is located based on previous experiences, she says. They hardly think about it.

“That whole process, we know how incredible it is, but we don’t know how we come to have it,” she says. Aslin cites a different example. Longstanding research shows that children from lower-income households receive less spoken language than middle- and upperincome children, he says, and they tend to enter school with a smaller vocabulary or what some educators call a “word gap.” There are efforts around the country to resolve this, Aslin says, but the jury is still out on what works. Getting at that kind of information is the daily grind for behavioral researchers. And it takes time before those findings can be applied outside the lab, Aslin says, which is exciting and a little frustrating. “Science moves incrementally,” he says. “There are always variables in what we find, but eventually the work moves forward.” During one of the UR’s more recent efforts, the research team revisited an earlier study that involved exposing 8-month-old babies to a set of random speech sounds. “We knew what the underlying structure was, but the babies had never heard it before,” Aslin says. The experiment was successful in that the babies were able to learn the new sound structure, he says, but the research team still didn’t know how they learned it. So they revisited the experiment, but this time it involved shining a light into the baby’s head. “If you held a flashlight up to your fingers, your fingertips would glow red, and if you looked in great detail, you can actually see your heartbeat in your finger,” Aslin says. “The continues on page 22 rochestercitynewspaper.com

Dining

Fiorella doesn't try to add crazy twists to its food. Rather, the restaurant relies on simplicity and quality to bring its dishes - like (left) the gnochi special, (middle) the eggplant sandwich, and (right) the baby kale salad - to life. PHOTOS BY MARK CHAMBERLIN

Superb simplicity Fiorella 5 PUBLIC MARKET 434-5705; RESTAURANTFIORELLA.COM WEDNESDAY AND FRIDAY: 11 A.M. TO 2 P.M.; 5 P.M. TO 10 P.M. THURSDAY AND SATURDAY: 10 A.M. TO 2 P.M.; 5 P.M. TO 10 P.M. [ REVIEW ] BY CHRIS LINDSTROM

After the visits my wife and I made to Fiorella, one word stuck in my mind and defined almost everything about the restaurant: simplicity. Simplicity resonated through the entire experience, from start to finish. Walking through the door for dinner, the combination of the low lighting and the tastefully decorated white block walls gave some atmosphere without making the room imposingly dark. The Staach-designed chairs, tables, and benches brought contemporary, light wood designs that contrasted with the older aspects of the space. The simplicity carried over to the joyfully concise Italian menu, which features local and house-made ingredients. A focused menu is a great indicator that the restaurant doesn’t overextend the kitchen’s ability to store and create high-quality food. What struck me was that each dish had a relatively

limited slate of ingredients, but it rarely felt like more would have made an improvement. Since Fiorella doesn’t have a full liquor license, the only cocktail available was a wine-based Americano that toed the line between sweet and bitter. This played nicely within the confines of a restaurant serving only beer or wine. The delightful bread and butter ($3) was no more than a Flour City Bread baguette and salted butter. The texture of the bread and the cultured flavor from the butter stood out here. A baby kale salad ($7) was coated with a creamy cacio e pepe dressing that was savory without becoming overwhelming. The Bolton Farms greens weren’t overdressed, and their delicate flavor worked well with the ground pepper, seasoned breadcrumbs, and plenty of grated Parmesan cheese. Fried brown rice with house-cured guanciale ($9) was a playful and satisfying take on the Chinese takeout favorite. The vegetables were diced small, the sunny-side egg popped on top, and the seasoning was subtle. The weekly gnocchi special ($20) was the epitome of less being more. Pillowy potato dumplings were bathed in a San Marzano tomato sauce and served with a meatball and sautéed greens. The balance with the ingredients eaten in one bite was striking: strong beef mixed with bright sauce, a touch of funk from the greens, and

the creamy gnocchi. I was left shaking my head and smiling with how much I enjoyed the combination. The guanciale showed up again with the Roman style spaghetti ($16) along with softened onions and parmesan cheese. This was a heavier dish that needed something to brighten it up a bit. The texture of the pasta was notable in that it was made in house, and each piece was perfectly al dente. I’m looking forward to trying more pasta dishes to see how the other versions stand up. One of my food passions is Neapolitan style pizza, and Fiorella seriously stepped up to the plate with the Rosso pie ($13) that my wife and I shared. The well-seasoned crust had a puffy cornicione (outer crust) and a slightly crispy and chewy texture that can only be found with a wood-fired oven running at a very high temperature. The four-day natural fermentation (no added yeast) brought sourdough-like flavors into the crust and helped make this a fantastic Neapolitan pizza base. The toppings were a minor tweak on the Margherita that I use as a baseline for this style of pizza: San Marzano tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, basil, oregano, olive oil, and some diced garlic. No issues there. If I’m being nitpicky, I’d prefer a touch more sauce, and I’d like to see the oven a few degrees higher to get some blisters on the cornicione,

but that is more personal taste than anything else. This is a top-notch offering after only 6 months working with the oven, and I can’t wait to get back for more. On the sweet side of things, the chocolate olive oil cake served with a citrus crema and a warm ganache would be a good option to satisfy the chocolate lover in your dining party. We enjoyed the chocolate and vanilla gelatos alongside a strawberry sorbetto each for different reasons. The chocolate was rich enough without being too dark, the vanilla bean flavor was more subtle but pleasant, and there was a concentrated hit of strawberry in the sorbet without being jelly-like. I finished off my experience with a vegan eggplant sandwich ($7.50) served on Flour City Bread that never felt like it was missing meat. Roasted eggplant with a salty bean puree and some white balsamicdressed tomatoes gave this plenty of depth of texture and flavor and provides a good reason to stop in for lunch while roaming around the Public Market.

Curtis Nowosad “Dialectics” Cellar Live curtisnowosad.com

Eleanor Friedberger SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 21 BUG JAR, 219 MONROE AVENUE 9:30 P.M. | $13-$17 | BUGJAR.COM ELEANORFRIEDBERGER.COM [ ALT-ROCK ] Enigmatic, melodic — there are many

words that can describe Eleanor Friedberger’s other band, The Fiery Furnaces. Lead singer Friedberger’s own music however is conventional compared to the sprawling weirdness of the Furnaces, a brother-sister act that has played at the Bug Jar. With the band on hiatus, she has embarked on a solo career that has seen her tour in Europe and release a third album, “New View.”  The record references vintage West Coast folk that is made even better by Friedberger’s creative mind. Icewater opens the show. — BY ROMAN DIVEZUR

“Adventurous Italians” THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 18 MEMORIAL ART GALLERY, 500 UNIVERSITY AVENUE 7:30 P.M. | FREE WITH MAG ADMISSION PUBLICKMUSICK.ORG [ CLASSICAL ] An early music all-star team is getting

together for the next Publick Musick concert, this time as part of the Memorial Art Gallery’s “Third Thursday” concert series. The star is probably the gallery’s splendiferous Italian Baroque organ, which will be played by Eastman School of Music faculty member Edoardo Bellotti and student Naomi Gregory, but there is splendiferous baroque music by “Adventurous Italians” on hand as well. — BY DAVID RAYMOND

Drummer Curtis Nowosad has enhanced the bands of Dave Douglas, Miguel Zenón, Donny McCaslin, and others. Now he’s showcasing his own musical vision on his excellent debut album, “Dialectics.” The CD sleeve is modeled after a record cover from the late 1950’s, complete with small-print liner notes and a boxed track list worthy of time travel. The good news: the album is a furious blowing session worthy of that golden-years-of-hard-bop connection. The session kicks off with the front line of saxophonist Jimmy Greene and trumpeter Derrick Gardner on a rousing rendition of Wayne Shorter’s “Speak No Evil,” one of three covers. On those and the six original compositions by Nowosad, pianist Will Bonness and bassist Steve Kirby fill out the group, supplying superb accompaniment and the occasional solo. Echoing the greats of the 1950’s, Nowosad bases many of his tunes on the chords of standards. The album reminds us that no one has found a formula better than the traditional one used here: a catchy head played by the horns, followed by blistering solos, all supported by a relentlessly swinging rhythm section. — BY RON NETSKY

Violet Mary “All That We Seem” Belly of the Whale Music http://www.violetmary.com

In an era where bands are releasing more abbreviated EPs or forgoing hard copies of a recording altogether in lieu of downloading, comes Rochester rockers Violet Mary with its fourth and latest offering All That We Seem, a double album. That’s right: two discs. Though the packaging is a little cumbersome, it still is reminiscent of so many gatefolds that preceded it. Disc 1 kicks off heavy and doesn’t let up until Track 4, “Breathe in Deep,” with its mellow power, endurance, and overcast lyricism. In fact, Disc 1 is the darker half of “All That We Seem’s” night-and-day dichotomy. But it isn’t all doom and gloom. Singer Mel Muscarella’s vocals are stern, strident, and secular despite the spirits she evokes. Hints of the Flaming Lips (just dig the cut “Hill Town”) tinge the band’s less traditional treatment of its otherwise traditional roots. That’s particularly true in the guitar department, where also-producer Mike Muscarella’s guitar shreds and shrieks as if he were a less pop-goofy Rick Nielsen. Violet Mary’s accessibility may keep some from realizing that this is not only a hard-rock band, but also one of dimension and weight. Both discs are loaded with a limitlessly big-sky atmosphere. They take you on a sublime trip you won’t want to return from anytime soon. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

With The Occasional Saints, pianist Paul Nunes is reaching into the Deep South for jazz and pop. PHOTO BY FRANK DE BLASE

Occasional Saint Paul [ FEATURE ] BY FRANK DE BLASE

Paul Nunes’ hands dance effortlessly up and down the 88’s in a powerful polydactyl boogie. It’s a sound of big ease, of Louisiana bump and sparkle with dashes of jazz and pop mirth. It’s beautiful; it’s sanctified. But a saint, he ain’t. Nunes has finally hit the scene with his new outfit The Occasional Saints, a band he’s dreamed of creating for years. The time was right; he just had to purge his soul and prepare for the judgment. “The concept of an occasional saint is heresy,” he says mid-grin. “As a lapsed Catholic, I at least remember this. The Catholic Church doesn’t want you to be an occasional saint. The goal is to be a saint. An occasional saint means bad things.” Bad things that sound pretty goddamn good. “I love New Orleans piano,” he says. “The style and groove really talks to me. I’ve been thinking of this band 8 to 10 years… thinking about it. It was a big jump to actually do it.” Nunes wasn’t necessarily a reluctant saint; other priorities had to be addressed. Family obligations, jobligations, health issues including his own cancer scare, one daughter moving

to England, the other launching a music career. The man was spread thin. He couldn’t pull the trigger. “Other life forces began to move,” says Nunes. “There were these other priorities, and I didn’t have the bandwidth to do it.” It was a few years later that Nunes stumbled upon a virtually abandoned old Steinway at Java’s at the Public Market. It was barely in tune and as Nunes puts it, “beat up and left for dead.” Nunes took pity and since it wasn’t going to play itself, started banging away at it. He did this every Saturday morning for a spell, and folks started to congregate. Other musicians gradually started coming out of the woodwork to sit in. The Public Market Band was born, but Nunes still couldn’t commit to the time required. Flash forward: today. His kids are squared away – one is married, the other is ukulele sensation Julia Nunes – his wife is on the mend, and he has more time to commit to his music. Besides The Occasional Saints, Nunes is also the children’s entertainer Vincent. But for the big kids, he’s written over 30 songs full of swampy boogie and lackadaisical charm and has secured a solid line-up, too.

The Occasional Saints isn’t the impish, cloven-hoofed line-up you’d expect. Guitarist Carmen Verzillo, drummer Michael Verzillo, and bassist Ernie Santoro surround Nunes as they all collectively serve the song. There’s no brassy fanfare or histrionics, just appropriate, spot-on renderings as required. They don’t show off. At the center is Nunes, as he nurses a narrative full of New Orleans nectar from the piano like a less sardonic Randy Newman or Tom Waits on a chocolate milk bender. He sings matter-of-factly and prefers to showcase the band than to be considered the front man. He lets the songs speak for themselves. And though they possess their own individual tales, there is a common thread throughout. “A good time,” he says. “I want to bring something positive to the party. I try not to write dark songs. There are many gifted songwriters and performers who can go to the dark edges. I choose not to. Other folks can cover that territory; it’s just not me.” Anywhere is perfect for a song to strike, according to Nunes. At the piano, driving, walking, or in something he calls lucid dreaming. “There’s kind of this twilight when you’re waking up,” he says. “Somewhere between dreaming and waking up – where you’re conscious enough to control what’s in your mind. I find I can write songs in that space. But then you have to write it down. There are times I’ve gotten up, buck naked, in my kitchen at the counter writing down the lyrics. Before they go, I’ve gotta write them down – before, like the bats of night meeting the sun at dawn, they flutter and fly away.” With the line-up solidified and hitting on all eight, Nunes plans on opening the doors up to canonize more Occasional Saints by showcasing guest musicians each show. The band is in the studio now with a completed EP in its sights, and Nunes continues to write naked in his kitchen. If you stop by, you’d better knock first.

ZYDECO | CURLY TAYLOR AND ZYDECO TROUBLE

POP | NATALIE WEISS

A lot of musicians throw zydeco in the mix as an accent or a spice. Conversely, for Curley Taylor it’s what’s in the pot to begin with. This squeezebox squeezer uses soul, gospel, and hip-hop to spice up his spice. You’ll even pick up hints of the blues while you flail away on the dance floor.

YouTube phenom and Broadway vet Natalie Weiss has certainly racked up the accolades as a performer. Though seemingly comfortable in a cabaret setting, this young lady’s pipes threaten to bring down the joint with their elegant largess. Weiss will wow you with her bold take on Broadway selections and pop standards. Simply beautiful.

Bond’s conquests “Taryn Simon: Birds of the West Indies” THROUGH MAY 15 GEORGE EASTMAN MUSEUM, 900 EAST AVENUE TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY, 10 A.M. TO 5 P.M.; SUNDAY, 11 A.M. TO 5 P.M. $5-$14 | 271-3361; EASTMAN.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

Currently on view at Eastman Museum, Taryn Simon’s “Birds of the West Indies” is a two-part undertaking that connects Ian Fleming’s famous character with the American ornithologist whose name Fleming borrowed. In her oeuvre, Simon links the real James Bond’s captured birds with 007’s pursuit of “birds,” she becomes a hunter herself, and invites her audience to get in on the action. The first room of the main galleries holds Simon’s, “Field Guide to Birds of the West Indies.” “In this part of the series, she becomes an ornithologist of the James Bond movies,” says Lisa Hostetler, curator in charge of the Department of Photography at Eastman Museum. In 2012, Simon watched 24 Bond films, and painstakingly isolated each and every scene that a bird or birds appeared. As many of the scenes were filmed outside, the appearance of most of the birds was unanticipated, scenic white noise. Simon snagged a still from each of these chance-sightings — the birds 16 CITY FEBRUARY 17-23, 2016

are often only specs, smudges, or blurs against architecture or an empty sky — and organized the scores of black and white prints into frames, organized by the country in which the film took place. So each frame might hold dozens of birds from different films, but from the same country, grouped the way an ornithologist would. There is some play of artifice, here, as the story’s setting doesn’t necessarily reflect the filming site. Though the stills are detached from their context, these happenstance captures trip us into the world of these stories, where real-life creatures flew onto fictional sets, unaware of the narrative, and interacted with the players. “00:04:06 Istanbul, Turkey, 2012” in particular perfectly conveys this tension between reality and fiction: hands emerging from off-frame aim a gun at a ducking, blurred crowd, and a flock of birds, likely disturbed by the shot, rises away in a panic. Simon refocused the viewer’s gaze away from the Bond franchise’s alluring agents to her own desiderata, and only the vaguest whiff of luxury, power, violence, or sex is present in these largely unassuming images. In the center of the room, a long, sleek display case holds images of some of the bird skins the real James Bond collected, copies of some of his letters and lists, and other archival materials related to the ornithologist. While the work in the first room of the exhibition is presented in a categorical,

scientific, understated manner, the images in next room speak of sleek drama. This other half of Simon’s exploration of Bond, “Birds of the West Indies,” presents another photographic inventory, this time of the women, weapons, and vehicles — the key, interchangeable elements featured in the Bond films from 1962 to 2012. “That’s sort of the power of this series,” Hostetler says. “They continually engage us with this combination of familiar tropes that we see.” A single line of identical black frames rings the entire space, with Simon’s own shots of the glamorous Bond women, who she tracked down and asked to pose against a white backdrop. The frames are empty in the cases where the actress rejected the invitation to participate. Some images of the ladies repeat, labeled with different dates for their different appearances in films. Simon also hunted down and photographed iconic weapons and vehicles against a black background. She assigned a number to each image, and runs the numbers through a randomizer that changes the order of the images for each showing of the work. Viewers are thus engaged in their own hunt for their favorite Bond girl among lethal weapons and stylish automobiles. This collection also includes Simon’s film, “Honey Ryder (Nikki van der Zyl), 1962,” which documents the most elusive (in a sense) of Bond’s “birds.” From 1962 to 1979, van der Zyl, was an unseen and uncredited performer who provided voice dubs for more than a dozen major and minor characters in nine Bond films. Here, Simon presents the woman reading her lines on camera for the first time. In the third room of the main galleries, visitors can sit and peruse all of the books that Simon has produced. This portion of the show shouldn’t be overlooked — each of the books are absorbing in their own right, and each present that uneasy tension of reality and fiction that Simon so loves to explore. Taryn Simon will give a talk at Eastman Museum on April 27. The Dryden Theatre will host a James Bond film series through April and May to complement the exhibition.

“I am the designated mourner. I have to tell you that a very special little world has died, and I am the designated mourner.” That’s also the title of Wallace Shawn’s unsparing, unsettling three-character drama, which tells of “a very special world” in which lives and art are unraveling, under siege in an unnamed but politically incendiary country. “The Designated Mourner” is raw and intellectually challenging — it’s the very opposite of a “feel-good” play, but it’s an affecting one. And while the play, directed by Roger Gans, is undoubtedly the thing, it won’t hurt a bit that the three characters will be played by three of Rochester’s best and most experienced actors: Michael Arve, Vicki Casarett, and Peter Doyle. You have only this weekend to see a show that should not be missed. “The Designated Mourner” will be performed Thursday, February 18, through Sunday, February 21, at MuCCC, 142 Atlantic Avenue.

RECREATION | HEAVY METAL YOGA

Maybe you’re interested in the health and sanity benefits of yoga, but the thought of spending a precious hour stretching to modern mystical tunes gives your style the cramps. For something completely different, check out Jesse Amesmith’s Heavy Metal Yoga, which is held Monday nights through July 25, 6 p.m. to 7:15 p.m., at Yoga Vibe (80 Rockwood Place). “Heavy Metal Yoga is pretty much just ‘regular yoga,’ without the flutes and waterfall sounds,” Amesmith says. “I like to get creative with my playlists, so it’s fun to have a space where it’s okay to combine my love of heavy music and bodywork.” The music selection includes heavy metal, punk, hardcore, sludge metal, dark ambient, drone, and noise, “pretty much anything that I feel like,” she says. The class is an open vinyasa flow, and is open to all levels of experience — Amesmith offers modifications and alignment cues along the way to keep it accessible — but it’s an active and higher impact class, so expect to sweat. Heavy Metal Yoga is $15 per session (dropins welcome).

She’ll put a spell on you “The Witch” (R), DIRECTED BY ROBERT EGGERS OPENS FRIDAY [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW

Writer-director Robert Eggers makes a masterful feature debut with his chilling period horror fable, “The Witch.” Boasting the subtitle “A New England Folk Tale,” the film takes on the quality of a legend people of the 17th century might have told around a roaring fire; a grim lesson for their youngest generations to obey the word of their elders. The film chronicles the circumstances surrounding

a family of Puritan settlers: William (Ralph Ineson), Katherine (Kate Dickie), and their five children, banished from their New England settlement (we never learn the exact cause of this punishment, though we get the sense William isn’t exactly against the decision). The family withdraws from the relative safety of civilization to strike out on their own, eventually settling on a stretch of land on the edge of a foreboding wood. Completely isolated in an unfamiliar place, the cracks in the family’s bond begin to show. Young Caleb (Harvey Scrimshaw, who is excellent) already has a close connection with his older sister, Thomasin (a phenomenal Anya Taylor-Joy), but her budding womanhood has begun to stir lustful feelings within him — certainly the work of the devil himself. William’s desperation grows as winter nears and the soil refuses to yield a healthy crop. Meanwhile, mischievous twins Mercy and Jonas (Ellie Grainger and Lucas Dawson) begin to claim that the family’s he-goat, Black Phillip, has been whispering

evil words to them. It all adds up to some rather tense conditions around the old homestead. Then baby brother Samuel disappears while under Thomasin’s watch — though she’d only taken her eyes off him for an instant during a game of peekaboo — and things really start to go sideways. It doesn’t take much to fan the flames of suspicion and the family rips apart at the seams amid a flurry of accusations and recriminations, largely directed at young Thomasin. Periodically, we get glimpses of the grisly activities carried out by a mysterious figure living deep in the woods, which may or may not be the imagined supernatural fears of the family made flesh. Eggers ambitiously strives for period authenticity in costuming, production design, and most notably, dialect (a postscript tells us that much of the film’s archaic dialogue was drawn directly from 17th-century documents, stories, and diaries). In combination with the thick English accents, the dense language sometimes makes dialogue difficult to understand — I had trouble with Ineson’s throaty rumble in particular — though the general meaning always remains clear. He cultivates an unnerving mood of barely contained repression that gradually bubbles over into religious hysteria and paranoia. Unlike “The Crucible,” this isn’t meant to be taken as a parable for contemporary society, though Eggers touches on evergreen issues such as our

culture’s fear of female sexuality and the darker effects of religious fundamentalism. “The Witch” drops us in a period (decades before the witch trials of Salem) when society turned to superstition and religion to find meaning in the frightening unknown. Puritanical threats of eternal damnation and everlasting hellfire lead the population to be consumed with a need to atone for their sinful natures, and the setting envelopes us in an atmosphere that’s ripe with religious fervor — one which only builds in intensity. Jarin Blaschke’s stark, oppressively gloomy cinematography uses natural lighting to create a striking visual style (though Black Phillip help anyone who watches the movie at a theater that makes a habit of dimming its projector bulbs — with all the film’s inky black shadows, you’re bound to miss a great deal). The insistent score from Mark Korven adds to the feeling of dread; a howling, wordless female choir isn’t just thematically appropriate, it also keeps us constantly on edge. Feeling like an instant classic of the horror genre, “The Witch” marks Robert Eggers as a major talent. Its larger aspirations may make it a tougher sell to the multiplex crowds, but in skillfully weaving historical authenticity with spine-tingling genre thrills, takes its place as the year’s first great film.

amount of oxygenated blood in your finger is going to vary with your heart rate. The same thing is true in your brain.” The brain recruits oxygen to areas that are more active, he says. In the experiment, the babies wear a cap fitted with a set of fibers that deliver beams of light to the outer regions of their brains. The babies look like they’re getting a space-age permanent. But the procedure is non-invasive and harmless, Aslin says. The researchers pair the sounds with a

visual, and the babies have to learn this pairing while the researchers assess which regions of the babies’ brains are activated. The findings are important because the research shows that babies as young as 8 months have brain function similar to adults. In simple terms, when sounds are paired with visual stimuli, sound will predict the visual even when the visual has not been presented. The brain is making an assumption based on past experience. “It’s like a signal is going to that part of the

brain saying, ‘I expect something to be there even when it’s not,’” Aslin says. In another UR study, dubbed “the Goldilocks effect,” researchers examined babies’ attention patterns using eye-tracking technology. They discovered that babies will ignore information that is too simple and too complex. But they’ll tune in when it’s just right. This is important, researchers say, because how babies make decisions about sights, sounds, and movement has broad implications. It could be especially useful to develop tools for earlier diagnosis and treatment of attentionrelated conditions such as ADHD and autism. Funding for research is an increasing concern; there isn’t as much grant money in the US as there used to be for all of the researchers who need it. And historically, medical research tends to get the big money. Aslin says that it takes at least $200,000 annually to run a baby lab. And while the Rochester Baby Lab doesn’t have trouble finding volunteers, Aslin and Kidd say that most of the children appear to be from households with middle incomes or higher. They acknowledge that there is some self-selection in their volunteer pool. “We know there are parents who find it hard to participate because they don’t have the time to get here,” Kidd says. “They’re working jobs that don’t allow them to be here. And transportation can be an issue for many.”

They’re doing outreach at sites such as the Rochester Public Market to increase awareness about the lab and to increase the diversity of their volunteers. And though they say that they almost never get “guinea pig” complaints from people who may be concerned about how the babies are treated, occasionally some people may not take the work seriously. There is sort of a cutesy nature about the business that usually goes away when people find out more about the lab, Aslin says. But even with advances in technology and more discoveries, one factor remains constant: babies can’t talk. So how reliable is the information gained from the studies? The UR’s Kidd says she believes it’s more reliable in some ways than research involving adults. “I trust infant data more than a lot of adult data in one very important way,” she says. “Adults know when they’re in a psychology study. And adults are doing all these high-level computations: ‘What’s expected of me?’ ‘What should I be doing?’” Infants don’t do that, she says. They’re not filtering information. “If you tell an adult to sit in front of a screen and not give them any further direction, they’ll sit there and try to figure out what they’re supposed to do,” Kidd says. “But infants do one thing exceptionally well, and that’s whatever they want.”

Cozy Cottage on Caroline 544 Caroline Street Imagine for a moment those evenings when you really, really don’t want to prepare dinner. And you really, really don’t want to get in the car to go somewhere. What better place to live than at the cusp of the South Wedge and Swillburg neighborhoods? Steps away from Rooney’s, a very short walk to the ethnic restaurants of South Clinton Avenue, the Highland Park Diner, the cozy bars of South Avenue. And, later, a half block to the Cinema Theatre for a double-feature. For those lazy nights, and for many other reasons, 544 Caroline Street is a house whose time has come. Built in 1890 as a worker’s cottage, this 1,000 square foot house survived periods of abuse to be reborn as a delightful starter home. One of a row of mostly well-kept homes on a quiet one-way street, 544 sits close to the road with coveted off-street parking for two cars and a fenced backyard. Among the twisty-turny streets of the neighborhood, this end of Caroline is one of the most charming. Follow the brick path past the cherry tree to the canopied front door (with ornate brackets attesting to its pedigree) and enter directly to the spacious living room with its built-in corner cupboard. It is immediately apparent that a full rehab has taken place, resulting in all new wood flooring throughout, many new windows, new furnace, hot water heater and appliances, and new roof. Light blue-gray paint with white trim unifies the first floor. This 1.5 story house is in move-in condition.

Listed as a three bedroom house, it is perhaps more fun to imagine it as a onebedroom that enjoys a large dressing room and first-floor den. A brand new kitchen is at the center, with minimal storage but a gas stove and room for a table and additional shelving. Exposed brick complements butcher-block style counters and white subway tile backsplash. Here, a vaulted ceiling opens to the second floor, giving the illusion of a much larger space. And, hopefully, warm air rises. A den/bedroom follows with a tall, sloping ceiling and a closet, plus a convenient door to the backyard. Between kitchen and den lies the full bath with pedestal sink, marble tile floor, subway tile and clawfoot tub. A sliding barn door maximizes the space. Upstairs are two charming spaces under the eaves, with recessed shelving in between. Original casement windows provide ample light on two sides, with a third side overlooking the kitchen below. The laundry is in the basement, with new washer and dryer and a utility sink. The house sits on 0.05 acres, and is listed for $99,900 through Tina Zwetsch of Nothnagle Realtors, 585-347-1853 or tzwetsch@ nothnagle.com. by Elizabeth M.

You should immediately contact an attorney or your local legal aid office to obtain advice on how to protect yourself. SOURCES OF INFORMATION AND ASSISTANCE The State encourages you to become informed about your options in foreclosure. In addition to seeking assistance from an attorney or legal aid, there are government agencies, and non-profit organizations that you may contact for information about possible options, including trying to work with your lender during this process. To locate an entity near you, you may call the toll-free helpline maintained by New York state Banking Department at 1-877-Bank-NYS or visit the Department’s website at www.banking.state. ny.us FORECLOSURE RESCUE SCAMS Be careful of people who approach you with offers to “save” your home. There are individuals who watch for notices of foreclosure actions in order to unfairly profit from a homeowner’s distress. You should be extremely careful about any such promises and any suggestions that you pay them a fee or sign over your deed. State law requires anyone offering such services for profit to enter into a contract which fully describes the services they will perform and fees they will charge, and which prohibits them from taking any money from you until they have completed all such promised services.

company who filed this foreclosure proceeding against you and filing the answer with the court, a default judgment may be entered and you may lose your home.

SUMMONS AND COMPLAINT You are in danger of losing your home. If you fail to respond to the Summons and Complaint in this foreclosure action, you may lose your home. Please read the Summons and Complaint carefully. You should immediately contact an attorney or your local legal aid office to obtain advice on how to protect yourself. SOURCES OF

INFORMATION AND ASSISTANCE The State encourages you to become informed about your options in foreclosure. In addition to seeking assistance from an attorney or legal aid, there are government agencies, and non-profit organizations that you may contact for information about possible options, including trying to work with your lender during this process. To locate an entity near you, you may call the toll-free helpline maintained by New York state Banking Department at 1-877-Bank-NYS or visit the Department’s website at www.banking. state.ny.us FORECLOSURE RESCUE SCAMS Be careful of people who approach you with offers to “save” your home. There are individuals who watch for notices of foreclosure actions in order to unfairly profit from a homeowner’s distress. You should be extremely careful about any such promises and any suggestions that you pay them a fee or sign over your deed. State law requires anyone offering such services for profit to enter into a contract which fully describes the services they will perform and fees they will charge, and which prohibits them from taking any money from you until they have completed all such promised services. Section 1303 NOTICE YOU ARE IN DANGER OF LOSING YOUR HOME If you do not respond to this Summons and Complaint by serving the copy of the answer on the attorney for the mortgage company who filed this foreclosure proceeding against you and filing the answer with the court, a default judgment may be entered and you may lose your home. Speak to an attorney or go to the court where your case is pending for further information on how to answer the Summons and protect your property. Sending a payment to your mortgage company will not stop this foreclosure action. YOU MUST RESPOND BY SERVING A COPY OF THE ANSWER ON THE ATTORNEY FOR THE PLAINTIFF (MORTGAGE COMPANY) AND FILING AN ANSWER WITH THE COURT.
