Pass GENDA

I was thrilled to see Darienne Lake on the cover of City, and love City even more for showcasing her talent (“The Lake Effect”). I am an avid fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race, and love drag entertainment. However, I would be even happier to see more real heroes who fall somewhere outside of the “normative” gender spectrum showcased in City. GENDA, the Gender Expression NonDiscrimination Act is still pending in New York. The real heroes are trans* people who fear losing their jobs, housing, or other things due to their gender identity and expression. Let’s start celebrating some of these folks on the cover of City and get GENDA passed, already! TREVOR G. GATES, ROCHESTER

The fight against the Common Core The massive resistance to the Common Core travesty, by concerned parents, teachers, and their unions, has finally moved New York State Regents, legislators, and the governor to backpedal. But this is only the first step in this struggle, for the Common Core juggernaut won’t roll over that easily. After all, the Common Core is the culmination of more than 25 years of a well-financed campaign by opportunist politicians seeking a standardized silver bullet for education and by corporate profiteers seeking a national education market for their ventures and wares. Their antidemocratic intrusions of standards, curricula, tests, and management schemes have been distracting schools and educators from authentic improvement for decades. 2 CITY

MARCH 5-11, 2014

We in Rochester ought to recognize this decades-long campaign, since one of its key instigators and power brokers all along has been Marc Tucker, whose wellheeled National Center on Education and the Economy decamped here in the late 1980’s to use the city schools as its laboratory. Since then, NCEE and its subsidiary America’s Choice have played a pivotal role in Common Core standards development. Tucker’s goal then and now is, in his words, “to remold the entire American system” of education and workforce development into “a seamless web that literally extends from cradle to grave,” using “international benchmarking as a lever for policy reform.” Back in 1989, a coalition of parents and educators spoke out against the Center’s corporate management style and “benchmarks of student performance.” One D&C op-ed from April 10, 1989, decrying the undue influence of the Center on city school district policy that was harming minority children, was cowritten by a coalition founding member, Bolgen Vargas. Fast forward 25 years, and Bolgen Vargas is now district superintendent. Curiously, despite his earlier concerns about outside influence on school policy, he, too, seems to have swallowed the Kool-Aid. Despite the current debates and growing refusal by other districts to use Common Core curriculum modules (all of which are “optional”), the city school district is, by all accounts, strictly enforcing and monitoring the use of this scripted, “teacher-proofed” material, much of it wildly inappropriate. District teachers laugh when I remind them that these state materials are optional. Not here. They tell me their hands are tied; one veteran teacher told me that district teachers are the “most fearful I’ve seen in 25 years.” What’s going on here? Why does the city school district

insist on forcing its teachers into a lockstep embrace of this house of cards, even as its shoddy facade has begun to crumble statewide? Does the district think that enthusiastic, autonomous, and unafraid teachers are somehow not essential to a good education? Is it really convinced that Common Core curriculum standards will somehow address the grueling concentration of child poverty that is the real source of poor student performance? It’s time for some answers, right here at home. DOUG NOBLE, ROCHESTER

Unions and poverty

Mr. Popper raises some fantastic points (“The Real Solution to Rochester’s Poverty,” guest commentary). We don’t live in a nation that is poor. We live in one of the wealthiest moments that this country has ever seen. Massive concentrations of wealth exist in very few hands. We don’t have a resource problem; we have a distribution problem. Unions are the major way to ensure that wealth is distributed more fairly to working people, who are essential to the creation of that wealth in the first place. If we continue to legislate away workers’ ability to organize, then we shouldn’t be surprised by the growing rates of poverty in our community. COLIN O’MALLEY

Poverty is hardly “manmade,” but rather is the natural condition of humankind. We overcome that wretched condition only through industriousness and ingenuity (which qualities are usually inimical to labor unions). Economic growth and development are the only antidote for poverty. New York State, unfortunately, already struggles with one of the most fiercely anti-growth environments in North America. Needless to say, increased unionization would only make our area’s

prospects that much more hopeless. The poor won’t be better off (though the union bosses sure would be). BDG

National labor law is based on the right to collective action by workers for purposes of collective bargaining or other mutual aid and protection. The right to strike was considered essential to balance power between employer and employees. Previous generations used that right to create a vast middle class. Will our generation be able to maintain those gains? The employer-consultant industry that shows employers how to best deprive workers of their lawful rights does a great disservice to us all, by leaving workers impoverished. Taxpayers then must subsidize with public benefits those impoverished workers. Instead, workers should be fairly compensated by employers who profit from their work. The right to collective bargaining and concerted action must be restored. Collective action will be needed for that, as is evident from our shared history. JEFF NIEZNANSKI

Addicts seek relief, not a high

Thanks for taking issue with the shameful D&C editorial, “What’s Fueling the Drug Culture?” (“The Roots of Addiction,” Urban Journal). Addiction is indeed an illness, often related to depression and other mental illnesses. For the D&C to suggest otherwise shows a shocking lack of knowledge and fuels prejudice against those with mental illnesses. Addictions, be they alcohol or heroin, often reflect a tortured soul for whom constant hopelessness and helplessness and emotional pain becomes unbearable. For these people, the attraction of the intoxicating substances is not the high that they provide. The high cannot hold a candle to the

immediate cessation of pain that comes from the swallow or injection or inhalation. Effective treatment for the underlying illnesses, when they prove chronic and unresponsive to medication and cognitive therapy, is sadly lacking in our society. And so their pain grinds on, unrelenting, day after day after day. The individual tries and fails again and again and again until they stop believing that any help exists and they begin believing that no matter what they do they will continue to suffer. Please hear this: People who suffer from these illnesses do not experience the world in the same way that healthy people do. The D&C concludes, as do too many members of the public, that these people are weak, lazy or otherwise lacking in character. This indicates their ignorance of their suffering. If you think I am incorrect, then you are fortunate indeed, because you and your family have escaped this pain and the terrible, terrible toll that it takes. Be thankful. The rest of us will continue struggling to find some help, some relief, and we will endeavor to hold our heads high despite what you think about our loved ones afflicted with mental illness. GARY R.

Metro services

On county charter committee’s study of redistricting and road patrol costs: Clearly, this

isn’t an abstract conversation since it costs real dollars to field a police force in any of our area municipalities. I’d love some conversation about regionalizing our police and fire services here. In its present state, it is fragmented and creates turf issues. Traveling on Empire Boulevard toward Ridge Road, you have a unified commercial area that spans two municipalities. If there’s a need for service, I doubt that anyone looks at the logo on the side of the police car or fire truck responding. MATT MCDERMOTT

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER

Religious freedom and our other rights Americans may not be massacring one another because of religion, but we sure can use it to do plenty of harm. Many of us held our breath last week while Arizona Governor Jan Brewer tried to decide whether to veto a “free exercise of religion” bill. The bill’s critics charged that it would legalize discrimination against LGBTQ people. Supporters insisted that it was no big deal: that it simply clarified existing state law. But the bill was a big deal. In Arizona, individuals already have the right to discriminate against other people if they’re acting out of religious beliefs (except in Phoenix, Tucson, and Flagstaff). The new bill would have broadened that protection to cover businesses, associations, and other organizations. And clearly, LGBTQ people were the target. Writing recently on the Cato Institute website, Cato Fellow Ilya Shapiro noted that the law’s purpose was to protect businesses from being sued or fined if they denied service to someone based on religious belief. Shapiro mentioned two cases, one in New Mexico and one in Oregon, in which businesses refused to provide services or goods for a same-sex marriage or commitment ceremony. Other articles by conservative writers have also cited cases involving same-sex ceremonies. Arizona’s not the only state that’s been considering that kind of bill. And coincidentally or not, the push has been taking place as same-sex marriage has become more accepted nationally. In the end, Brewer vetoed the bill. But Arizona came close to having it on the books. Both houses of the state legislature had approved it. This is serious business. Bills like Arizona’s tell the public that the objects of the discrimination are lesser beings, not worthy of service – or protection. Brewer managed to pull her state back from that disaster, but her veto won’t have changed anybody’s mind. Prejudice will live on, in Arizona and elsewhere. Religious freedom is also at the heart of Sibelius v. Hobby Lobby, a case being heard this month by the Supreme Court. This time, the religious belief of a business owner is pitted against the needs of his women employees. Hobby Lobby provides health insurance for its employees, but it doesn’t cover contraceptives. The Affordable Care Act requires that coverage, and Hobby Lobby owner David Green, who is a Catholic, says that forces him to violate his religious beliefs. (Green’s employees are free to buy contraceptives on their own, obviously, but even the least expensive

Are all religious beliefs important enough to be protected? Whose beliefs are valid? How can government decide?” contraceptives can be a financial burden for low-income women.) Link anything to religious rights, and the issue becomes very complicated. Many of us are forced to do things that are against our religious beliefs. When the death penalty was legal in New York State, my taxes helped pay for executions, which I oppose based on religious grounds. My taxes helped pay for the Vietnam and Iraq wars, which I opposed. When public-school teachers teach about evolution and climate change, or about contraception, they are teaching things that violate some taxpayers’ religious beliefs, and yet those taxpayers are forced to contribute to their salaries. Are all religious beliefs important enough to be protected? Whose beliefs are valid? How can government decide? Why are the beliefs of “established religions” more worthy of protection than those of highly ethical atheists? And is an individual’s religious belief more important than the provision of quality, affordable health care? Religious faith is important to many of us, and the Constitution provides great protection for us to practice it. But the Constitution doesn’t give us the right to impose our religious beliefs on other people. And it shouldn’t give us the right to cause very real harm to others. Given the conservatism of this court’s majority, though – and its pro-business tilt – a pro-religion ruling wouldn’t be a surprise. And it won’t be a surprise if Arizona legislators find another way to legalize discrimination.

Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown said in a recent interview with the Buffalo News that he is seriously considering mayoral control of the city’s public school system.

PUBLIC SAFETY | BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN

Westside neighbors want summer safety plan Questions about a recent triple homicide were dealt with quickly at a meeting of the 19th Ward Community Association last week, but that wasn’t what many residents wanted to talk about. Police say there is no threat to the broader community as a result of those killings. What the residents at the association’s Public Safety Committee meeting were more concerned about is how the Rochester Police Department plans to prevent a recurrence of the violence the Chili-Avenue-Thurston Road area experienced last summer.

Conflict between two rival street groups made for a tumultuous summer in the neighborhood last year. Wayne Harris, commander of the RPD’s west patrol office, said that part of the solution is reaching youth when they’re still in elementary school. By the time they’re in their teens, he said, it’s often too late. He also said that the pending reorganization of the RPD should put more officers out on the streets. Harris said that youth seem quicker to resort to violence than he’s seen at any point during his long career.

The willingness of some young people to use violence represents a failure of the entire community, one resident said. Another resident said that much of the responsibility for solving the problems begins at home. The young men who are shooting each other are the sons of the people who live in the neighborhood, he said. And their daughters are dating some of these young men, he said. “Parents, take back your home,” he said. “Take back your kids,” repeating it as a chant as he left the room.

DEVELOPMENT | BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN

Drive-throughs proposed for CityGate A proposal to add two drive-throughs to the CityGate project in the southern edge of the City of Rochester is adding to complaints that the $200 million canal-front development is too suburban in layout and design. The City Planning Commission will consider the application for the drive-throughs at a meeting on Monday, March 10. CityGate is a 45-acre project that will include a hotel, 300-unit apartment complex, a Costco store and other retail, and office space at the intersection of East Henrietta and Westfall Roads. No one from Anthony J. Costello and Son, CityGate’s developer, was available to comment on this story. There doesn’t appear to be organized opposition to the project, and CityGate has the enthusiastic endorsement of the Upper Mount Hope Neighborhood Association. “The neighborhood, we’re all excited about this,” says Dan Hurley, the group’s president. Hurley says the developer has repeatedly reached out to the neighborhood, the business association, ”anybody and everybody, to let them know step by step, detail by detail, what [its] plans are.” The attacks on the project seem to be coming mostly from social media. Comments on one site, for example, refer to CityGate as a “suburban-style

nightmare,” and say the project is not connected to the larger neighborhood. Mitch Rowe, the city’s director of planning and zoning, says that there will be pedestrian routes throughout the site and that the drive-throughs would be screened. Developer Anthony Costello has said in the past that his aim is to make CityGate a destination akin to Park Avenue in the city or Schoen Place in Pittsford. The project’s retail component would take the form of a street of shops, Costello said. And Hurley says the design concepts he’s seen feature brick and stone exteriors. “So I think there are a lot of positive aspects,” Rowe says. “I can appreciate people’s concerns about drive-throughs and a larger retailer [Costco], but on balance, everybody who’s been involved in reviewing

and approving this thinks it’s a great project.” CityGate also represents a significant investment in the city, he says. Costello hasn’t named prospective tenants for CityGate beyond Costco, but city documents say the drive-throughs would be for a food operation and a retail operation in the northwest corner of the project. The drive-throughs have permission to operate from 6 a.m. to 2 a.m. The City Planning Commission meeting is at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, March 10, in City Council chambers at City Hall, 30 Church Street. Commission members will hold a staff meeting prior to the meeting, at 5:30 p.m., in conference room 223B at City Hall. Both meetings are open to the public.

The Preservation League of New York State has named three Olmsted pedestrian bridges in Genesee Valley Park to its “Seven to Save” list for 2014-2015. The list identifies what the league considers to be the state’s most threatened historic resources. The concrete bridges were designed by the Olmstead Brothers landscape design firm and built in the early 20th century. A 2011 study by the State Department of Transportation found that the bridges have structure deficiencies, erosion issues, and other concerns, the league says. The league blames the condition of the bridges on limited funding, deferred maintenance, and uncertainty over who is responsible for the bridges’ care. Wayne Goodman, executive director of the Landmark Society of Western New York, says in a press release that the bridges are a community asset “and a highly visible feature in one of our most important historic landscapes, Genesee Valley Park.” The league’s goal is to cooperate with other concerned parties to save the bridges.

Cycle tracks aren’t on-street enhancements

like bike lanes or sharrows, which are mostly set apart through striping and markings. And unlike bike paths, cycle tracks aren’t detached from the roads. In simple terms, cycle tracks resemble scaleddown, bike-only streets. The typical cycle track runs adjacent to a roadway, and the Elmwood-College Town project will follow that model. 6 CITY

ELMWOOD AVE / COLLEGE TOWN CYCLE TRACK Though the corridors are physically separated from streets, they tie into them at driveways and intersections. A cycle track’s pavement is usually wide enough to accommodate bike traffic travelling in two directions. The pavement for the Elmwood-College track will be approximately 10 feet wide, striped down the center, and marked to indicate two directions of travel. The Elmwood-College Town track will also likely have its own traffic signal system, a feature common to cycle tracks. The project has generated some public curiosity, since it’s a first for Rochester. But it’s not the only cycle track the city has in the works. The $28.5 million Inner Loop East project, where the city will fill in a portion of the Inner Loop, also calls for a cycle track. That bike corridor will start at the Chestnut-Monroe intersection and follow Howell Street to Union Street. From there it will follow Union to University Avenue. City officials expect to complete the project by early 2017. Frisch says it’s likely that future city road projects will be evaluated to see whether cycle tracks make sense. Ultimately, the cycle tracks provide

bicyclists with infrastructure for comfort and safety, say McIntosh and Frisch. But there’s a bigger picture, too. As city officials have planned out bike lanes, sharrows, and now cycle tracks, McIntosh says, they’ve focused on making a

The stretch of Elmwood Avenue that runs along the University of Rochester Medical Center campus is a crucial corridor. For many drivers, it’s the way they access the UR. More than 20,000 motor vehicles travel the segment of Elmwood between Mt. Hope Avenue and the Genesee River every day, according to State Department of Transportation data. But hundreds of people also bike through the corridor, says Richard DeSarra, president and co-founder of the Rochester Cycling Alliance. And the cyclists are often squeezed onto the corridor’s sidewalks, he says. “Even your most experienced cyclists will tell you Elmwood’s not a great place to ride,” says Erik Frisch, a transportation specialist with the City of Rochester. The high volume of traffic is only part of the problem. The road has narrow lanes, DeSarra says, which means the motor vehicle traffic is dense. The density, combined with cars changing lanes and making turns, makes many cyclists uncomfortable. City officials say they want to make the street more hospitable to cyclists, and to accomplish that goal they’re trying an approach that hasn’t been used in Rochester. They’re going to build a cycle track along Elmwood between Mt. Hope and the river. When it’s completed, the track will give cyclists a dedicated passageway through the corridor without using an inch of Elmwood’s pavement. The city plans to build the .75-mile track next year. Earlier this year, the city received a $1 million state grant to fund most of the $1.5 million project; College Town’s developer is chipping in $250,000 for the project. Over the past couple of years, the city has worked to make its streets more accommodating to cyclists. Crews created bike lanes and laid down shared use markings — sharrows, for short — on many city streets. But Elmwood doesn’t have room for bike lanes or sharrows, which is why the cycle track is the most promising option, says city engineer Jim McIntosh. “It will be used by a lot of people who work on the River Campus,” DeSarra says.

network that mimics the road network that motor vehicles use. The Elmwood-College Town cycle track fits that philosophy, although it may not be immediately apparent. The track project directly ties in to planning and projects that have come out of Brighton. The town’s Bicycle Master Plan proposes bicycle accommodations — potentially including shared-use lanes — for the entire Elmwood Avenue corridor, from Twelve Corners to the city line. The town and the city are also working together on the Highland Crossing shared-use trail, which

would connect a town park off Westfall Road with the Genesee Riverway Trail north of the University of Rochester campus. So the Elmwood-College Town cycle track is the start of what could be a longer bike corridor. The corridor could someday funnel residents from a few neighborhoods and communities to their jobs or classes on the University of Rochester campus, to new retail on Mt. Hope, or over to the Genesee Riverway Trail, which extends into downtown.

t’s hard to think of another local institution that has more successfully reinvented itself than Monroe Community College. Not long ago, if you were going to MCC, it was often cynically assumed it was because you couldn’t get into a “real” school. MCC has successfully jettisoned that image, and a good deal of the credit seems to belong to MCC President Anne Kress. In the relatively short time she’s been in office, Kress has helped to significantly elevate MCC’s stature. MCC is increasingly seen as a smart choice — a reliable pathway to a rewarding career and-or a four-year college, minus the high tuition. MCC is in a unique position at an unusual time in higher education when many students are concerned about accumulating debt in an uncertain economy. And even though MCC doesn’t have a huge endowment to work with, Kress is able to offer students affordability and value. Just weeks ago, Vice President Joe Biden used MCC as a backdrop to talk about job preparation for a global economy. Since her appointment in 1999, Kress has quickly embedded herself in the Rochester community. She serves on the boards of several nonprofits and on Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Regional Economic Development Council. And she recently returned from a trip to Washington DC with Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren. The pair lobbied for economic aid to make the Rochester region an advanced manufacturing hub. And Kress has shown she can handle herself in a tough, politically charged debate. Shortly after arriving at MCC, tensions sparked over where to relocate the college’s downtown campus. After a lengthy search for a suitable site, Kress and MCC’s trustees opted to purchase vacant property from Eastman Kodak near High Falls. Former Mayor Tom Richards opposed the idea, and unsuccessfully tried to convince Kress and MCC officials to stay closer to East Main Street’s downtown development. Kress says the decision to move the Damon campus to the Kodak site has been made and she’s moved on. And Kress has not been timid about stepping into a broader discussion about city schools and the importance of K-12 education. MCC leads more than 20 programs with the Rochester City School District ranging from preventing summer learning loss to increasing college readiness. Kress talked about the challenges facing community colleges, MCC’s relationship with the city school district and Superintendent Bolgen Vargas, and how to prepare students for the new skills-driven economy in a recent interview. She also talked about Vargas’s controversial strategy to have colleges 8 CITY

Anne Kress and the reinvention of MCC

INTERVIEW BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

take over the management of some city schools. And she shared her concerns about Rochester’s poverty rate and how it impacts city schools and the area’s colleges. The following is an edited version of that discussion.

CITY: What are your plans for the new Damon campus? How many students will attend and what programs are planned?

Kress: We anticipate when we open in 2017 we’ll have about the same enrollment that we have right now at Damon — between 2,800 and 3,000 students. One of the biggest benefits of that campus is that we’ll be able to add programming that will draw even more students to Damon. We have room for about 20 percent growth built into the facility we’re developing. And when we look at the programs we’ll be bringing there, it’s a really nice mix. Certainly we’ll move everything that we already have at Damon, but we also have what we call our “program clusters.” For example, we’ll have our pre-college programs there under one roof. Upward Bound helps students who are underrepresented in higher education. They come from low-income families, firstgeneration families, and it helps them get a leg up on going into college. Maybe two years ago, MCC was one of the few community colleges that received funding for an Upward Bound STEM program, which has a special focus on science, technology, engineering, and math. We’ll also have work force development programs, career and technological education programs, and we’ll continue to look at how we can expand our college partnerships as far as transferring institutions. Right now, Keuka Community College is the only transfer partner we have at the Damon campus, but we’ll have room to grow so that students could potentially complete their entire four-year degree at the new campus. And then we’ll be able to bring MCC’s Corporate College under one roof, which is for both credit and noncredit instruction typically for non-degree seeking students. Many already have a degree and they’re working; they’re just seeking to advance certain skill sets. We’ve heard a lot from communitybased organizations and the nonprofits who may want training and academic programs directly related to preparing for occupations in those fields. How do you effectively lead a community-based organization? How do you manage a nonprofit? If we could create a two-year program that could lead to a transfer to a four-year program, that would be fantastic. We’ve also been approached by some community agencies to expand in the academic areas that we already have at

EDUCATION Damon. Human services is a good example. We’ve been approached about expanding [human services] to include specific training for dealing with child abuse victims. Nursing would stay at the Brighton campus?

Yes. We don’t want to duplicate incredibly high-cost, capital- intensive programs. Nursing was created in a building that was specifically built for it. It models a hospital, and that would be hard to duplicate somewhere else. We do have a grant proposal out there to create the Workforce Development Center, which would be very flexible. It would be sort of a quick response training center so that when businesses came to us, we could gear up really quickly, recruit students, get them in, and get them trained. How much of the space at Damon will be available for START-UP NY? (Some of MCC’s Damon campus space could be available to business partnerships resulting from Cuomo’s plan to attract businesses to the state with taxfree zones. All of SUNY’s community and four-year colleges qualify as tax-free zones for business developers.)

We acquired 547,000 square feet, and we’ll use roughly half of that. The other half of the facility we’ve provided to START-UP NY to essentially be part of that broader program. There’s about 200,000 square feet that START-UP NY is marketing and there’s also some land that is owned by the [MCC] Foundation that we’ve put up for START-UP NY that could [potentially] be used for an advanced manufacturing plant. We hear that there are thousands of jobs in the area that are not being filled because employers can’t find skilled applicants. Yet we also hear that there are no jobs. What’s going on?

Here’s the challenge: the jobs are there, but what skill sets are people bringing to the work force? Optics is a good example and it sort of fits into the conversation around advanced manufacturing. I think the issue is that advanced manufacturing today isn’t what it used to be; it’s a very specific skill set. Let’s say you have a bachelor’s degree in finance; it doesn’t necessarily qualify you to be an optics systems technologist. Yes, you may have a four-year degree, but what the employer is looking for is someone with a relatable two-year degree. This question shows the challenge with our economy right now in that employers are far less focused on degrees per se, and much more interested in skill sets. And middle skill sets is a good way to describe them because those skills are taught at the community college level and they don’t necessarily involve earning a twoyear degree. Maybe they need noncredit instruction or certification, because when someone is hiring, they’re not hiring the degree. They’re hiring the skills. This is a fundamental shift that’s hard for some people to understand. It doesn’t seem like we should have an employee gap because we have so many people coming out of college with degrees and we have so many people unemployed. But the challenge is, has their background prepared them for the new economy? There are all sorts of jobs out there that few of us understand because they didn’t exist when we were applying to college or preparing for a career. Mechatronics — I had to have that field explained to me several times because I had never heard of it. And I still don’t know if I could explain it properly, but I know there’s a big demand for mechatronics degrees. (Mechatronics is an emerging field that combines mechanical engineering with several other types of engineering.)

How do you balance courses that students find interesting and courses they’ll need for the job market?

If there’s one thing that we’re all trying to find the secret recipe for, it’s that one. I have a liberal arts degree and I value the liberal arts. But I had to laugh when President Obama wrote a letter of apology to art history teachers after the comment he made recently about majoring in art history. It was fascinating that focus was on art history and not what the president actually said. I don’t think this society has had difficulty valuing traditional college degrees. In fact, we’ve had difficulty valuing nontraditional degrees. There’s no shortage of art history programs across this country, quite honestly. But there is a shortage of programs in mechatronics. There’s a shortage of programs in clinical laboratory technology. There’s a huge gap between the number of employees we have and the number we need, and you see that when we have to bring in people from other countries to fill those jobs. But in terms of creating programs, I would split this between typical transfer programs and the way we look at career technical education programs. When somebody comes to MCC and enrolls in one of our CTE programs, there’s kind of an implicit promise in the very title of those programs: When you graduate you can find a career. When we can’t promise that anymore, we sunset those programs. We did that with massage therapy a few years ago. Students enjoyed studying it, and everyone here really liked it because the students did their field work on employees. But when [students] came out of school the most they would get was part-time work. We look at real labor data from the state and national levels that forecast where the jobs will be, and we try to create programs to meet local need at the level it really exists.

For example, we don’t grow the dental hygiene program any bigger because we’re meeting the local need. On the other hand, one of the reasons we started the accelerated machining program was because the local demand is so much bigger than the number of graduates produced. We had to make it go faster. On the transfer side, we look at a much bigger picture of where our students go. For example, we make sure that our students have access to programs that will allow them to transfer into another college or university. Sports management is a good example. We noticed around the state that several institutions added four-year degrees in sports management. Students at MCC didn’t have a pathway into those programs, so we’ve added a sports management associate’s degree program. So the model of community colleges as a feeder to working-class jobs and four-year colleges as the feeder to the professional class doesn’t apply anymore?

Absolutely not. Something like 70 percent of our students are in transfer programs. And they transfer into everything from anthropology to nanotechnology. We have a young woman, Elizabeth Kennedy, who I would say is one of our stars because Elizabeth transferred into Cornell University where I believe she’s studying chemistry. I ran into her not long ago and she has three other MCC students in one of her biology classes. That’s pretty extraordinary. At a recent event you said that K-12 education is everybody’s responsibility. What did you mean? For instance, what is the relevance of universal prekindergarten to MCC?

College readiness doesn’t start in high school, especially if you enter high school at a reading level that’s not at ninth grade — or eighth, seventh, or sixth. That’s a serious challenge. continues on page 10

continues from page 9

You’ve got to close a lot of gaps in a short period of time. So college readiness really does begin at pre-k because from the very beginning you need to be adding all of these steps together. And that’s what I meant when I said I think it’s everybody’s business — not just higher education leaders and not just the school districts. It’s a concern for business leaders and community leaders. Every taxpayer should be concerned about the quality of K-12 education because we all pay for it one way or another. And we pay twice when there are deficits because when students can’t make it through the system, they end up somewhere. And that’s usually not a very productive place. My interest in this subject has to do with my years of working in community college and seeing what happens when students have to start with remedial work. We can call it whatever we want so it doesn’t sound so bad, but the truth is far too many are beginning by doing remedial work; it’s pre-college work that they should have already mastered. And they’re far less likely to be successful than if they were to start college-level classes on day one. It’s terrible for them. It’s terrible for all of us. And there’s not a single institution that will tell you anything different.

What are we doing right at the elementary and secondary levels and what are we doing wrong?

Students are more likely to succeed the more we can make their outside school experience as positive as possible. We need to reinforce the message that learning is important. They’re more likely to succeed when they get that message across the continuum — not just from their classroom teacher, but from somebody at the community center, from somebody on their block, or in their church.

We talk a lot about how MCC students really are on every block, even the most challenged blocks in this community. And when you think about it, what a powerful force that is, to look next door and see that girl, your neighbor friend, is going to college. That sends a message, ‘If she’s going to college, I can, too.’ One of the most powerful things for me at commencement is seeing parents graduating from college because it sends a message to their children: they can do it, too. And it’s never too late to get your education. What we need to do now as a community is say that it’s never too early. Also, we talk a lot about our failing schools. We need to think about what message that sends. We can be honest about our situation, but think about what that says to a kid [who] is going through incredible odds just to show up at a failing school. Some research suggests that when more than 50 percent of students in a classroom come from low-income households, there’s a corresponding drop in test scores. Is that true in the community college setting?

I think it’s relevant. We acknowledge that many of our students are from low-income families. That’s in front of us every day. It impacts every community college. It impacts retention. It impacts success. Students carry with them everything from outside when they come into class. If they haven’t eaten, if they’ve got trouble at home, if they don’t have a home, if they’re a returning veteran dealing with significant re-entry issues or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, I mean all of that comes into the classroom. So one of the big challenges that almost all community colleges face is, how do you serve the needs of this remarkably diverse student population?

At an education-related event recently you said that Rochester is a community rich in programs to support the city school district and that we don’t need more programs. What did you mean?

At some point we have to come together and say, ‘These are our collective goals.’ If we say we want city school children to be more successful, then we need to leave all that other stuff on the side. And a lot of stuff will be programs. There’s a great graphic that we use sometimes in presentations that shows every single program in the community intended to help the city school district. When you look at that, it’s a gestalt moment because it quickly becomes clear why none of this is adding up. The problem is that it’s not about the programs. It’s about alignment. We have this real tendency to begin these sorts of boutique programs that serve these 10 students here and these 20 students there. One community college researcher calls it “piloting ourselves to death.” We have all of these pilot programs going everywhere. And when you add them together, they do a fantastic job for the 300 students out of the 15,000 you serve. But what about the other 14,700? How do you scale that up? The only way to scale that up is by not starting any new programs and by looking at the ones you already have, seeing what works, and finding a way to bring those programs out to the entire student population. You really need to pause and look at the programs that are already out there and figure out what’s the evidence behind them. It seems like it would be easier to get funding for something that exists and has evidence supporting it.

I would say that is a really big shift in the nonprofit world. What we’re seeing more

There are all sorts of jobs out there that few of us understand because they didn’t exist when we were applying to college or preparing for a career.

and more is that funders don’t want you to start something new. They want you to take something that’s proven and scale it up. To use that cliché, they realize that re-inventing the wheel isn’t a good use of funding. Rochester schools Superintendent Bolgen Vargas has proposed having area colleges take over the management of some city schools. Are you considering his proposal? Would MCC ever take over a city school?

I think we’re in some ways already doing that. We’re one of two partners — the other being St. John Fisher — with the Early College High School. But I think for us, the most exciting thing going forward is P-Tech or Pathways in Technology Early College High School. It’s not MCC taking over a high school because I would be the first person to say that we’re a community college, not a high school. But this is a reconceptualization of what high school is. It’s a [grade] 9 through 14 high school, which means that students sort of graduate twice from the same institution. They graduate with a high school diploma and two years later with a two-year college degree. It’s based on the Brooklyn P-Tech model. Ours has a focus on two different pathways — information technology and information systems. And it’s not just four years of high school and two years of college. It’s really an intermingling of the two. (MCC received state funding in 2013 to create the joint-venture with the city school district.) It’s a whole new animal, if you will, in education. And it has extended day,

extended year, and strong business partners around internships and mentoring so that students come out and are ready to go to work. It’s free all the way through, and that’s pretty amazing if you think about it. Critics of traditional urban public schools say that too often poverty is used as an excuse for low student performance.

My concern when we talk about poverty and how it intersects education is that I do think that it starts to absolve the rest of us to address the issue of poverty. It’s not like the only people who are poor are kids in school. It seems like there should be two parallel conversations, and it relates to expertise. I know how to run a community college, but I am not a social policy person. And the same is true of the superintendent [Bolgen Vargas]. He’s not a social policy person. It seems like there should be some way of addressing these foundational issues so that students can go to school, teachers can focus on teaching, and community colleges can focus on providing access to higher education and careers. And there should be other discussions and actions around helping people so they can be productive in these settings. That’s a conversation about everything from substandard housing to hunger to health care and transportation. We’ve been throwing all of this into one bucket and I think we need to start unbundling this.

Dining Steak out Mac’s Philly Steaks 71 N. MAIN ST., FAIRPORT | 377-0033 76 S. MAIN ST., CANANDAIGUA | 394-7080 DAILY 11 A.M.-10 P.M. (BOTH LOCATIONS) MACSPHILLYSTEAKS.COM [ REVIEW ] BY LAURA REBECCA KENYON

In Philadelphia, the cheesesteak is not just a sandwich. It is an iconic obsession. The city is filled with places to get them, from pizzerias to delis to standalone shops; even gas stations get in on the action. The most renowned cheesesteak purveyors in Philly, however, are Geno’s Steaks and Pat’s King of Steaks. Like boxers eyeing each other from opposite corners of the ring, they face each other at the intersection of South 9th Street and East Passyunk Avenue. On a nice day — meaning only that there isn’t a blizzard or monsoon raging — a line of people snakes around each building. The people in the queues might order “one wiz wit” — a cheesesteak topped with Cheez Whiz and fried onions — or “one provolone widout” — a one cheesesteak made with provolone and no onions — or some other variation on the theme. I’ve stood in line at Geno’s and Pat’s, side by side with locals and fellow tourists, eager to eat an authentic Philly cheesesteak. Both were good: meaty, cheese, drippy, satisfying. But, you know what? I like Mac’s cheesesteaks better. And you only have to go as far as Fairport or Canandaigua to get one. A cheesesteak at Mac’s starts with a hoagie-style roll from Amoroso’s Baking Company. Based in South Philly, Amoroso’s has been family-owned and -operated since it opened in 1904. “Amoroso rolls are what make cheesesteaks world famous,” says Mac’s owner Ryan MacNamara. “It is the only way to create a true cheesesteak.” At Mac’s, a full-sized roll is 16 inches long, a shade lighter than golden brown, with a bottom lightly dusted with cornmeal. It’s soft bread; there are no shards of crust that chip off when taking a bite. But for all its softness, it holds up against the ingredients stuffed inside. Inside the bread is sirloin beef, prepped throughout the day and flavored with an inhouse seasoning. (MacNamara didn’t specify the blend, but my guess is that it includes salt, pepper, and garlic powder.) The beef is sliced thinly, chopped, and cooked on a flat grill. Though it is cooked until any pink is gone, its thinness keeps the meat tender.

Mac’s cheese of choice is white American, but triangular slices don’t top the sandwich fillings. Instead, the cheese is melted and blended in with the beef, lightly coating each piece. More than anything, this adds moisture and creaminess. While wars of words are fought in Philly over what kind of cheese is the right kind of cheese — Cheez Whiz, provolone, and American are all standards — Mac’s is more diplomatic. It will top a steak with Swiss, mozzarella, and cheddar in addition to the other cheeses mentioned. Round out the sandwich with grilled onions, a traditional topping. Opt in or out of the grilled peppers or mushrooms, but don’t skip the onions. They’re grilled until translucent, but no further, which takes out the full impact of the onions’ sulfurous bite but preserves some of the onion’s punch. Cheesesteaks at Mac’s are $3.79 for a 4-inch sandwich, $6.59 for an 8-inch, and $10.59 for a full, 16-inch sandwich. For added heat, the Philly Hots sandwich ($3.79, $6.59 or $10.59, depending on size) tops a traditional cheesesteak with hot sauce and hot peppers. Plain steak sandwiches and chicken cheese steaks are available, too.

Sides are key. Cheez Whiz isn’t a culinary darling, but it’s damned good on an order of cheese fries ($3.29). It’s not gloppy or thick; there is just enough to cover all of the fries, which soften under the Cheez. Shake on some extra pepper and salt for an added pop. Onion rings ($3.29) have a sturdy shell that’s fried to a deep, golden brown. They have a hefty crunch and manage to keep the onion from slithering out, maintaining a breadingto-onion balance in each bite. Macaroni salad ($2.29) is made in house daily. Elbow pasta stays firm and is blended with mayo, diced carrots, red onion, celery, and eggs. The egg and mayo add richness, with the raw vegetables bringing brightness and crunch. Rochester, like Philly, has its own iconic dish in the Garbage Plate. You probably know that Nick Tahou’s Hots has trademarked the name (U.S. Patent and Trademark Office registration number 1708448), which is why other establishments call their versions trash plates, dumpster plates, sloppy plates, or, in a high-low cultural stroke of branding, “Plat du Refuse.” At Mac’s, there are Mac’s plates ($9). A choice of two cheeseburgers, two Zweigle’s hot dogs, pulled BBQ pork, or one burger and one dog sits on top of pile of French

fries and macaroni salad. It’s then topped with Mac’s meat hot sauce, crisscrossed with ketchup and yellow mustard, and scattered with raw, chopped onions. Rochester probably argues about what makes a good plate as much as Philadelphians debate cheesesteaks. A well-made plate hits sweet, sour, salty, and umami tastes, which Mac’s accomplishes. The meat hot sauce is especially good; it incorporates cinnamon and, cryptically from MacNamara, “other spices.” There is more of an emphasis on the cinnamon than in other versions of the sauce I’ve tasted, and I think there’s a hint of clove, too. It’s not a thick sauce, nor is it greasy. The Philly plate ($9) blends the best of both plates and cheesesteaks: a bed of macaroni salad, French fries, and onion rings are topped with chopped steak or chicken blended with melted American cheese. The pile is then doused with Frank’s Red Hot and served with an Amoroso roll on the side. Both the Mac’s and the Philly plates are available in monster sizes — double the amount of food for $17. In the spirit of Philadelphia being the city of brotherly love, take along a friend and tackle it together. rochestercitynewspaper.com CITY 13

He’ll be heard with RPO Laureate Conductor Christopher Seaman this week in Beethoven’s witty “Concerto No. 2.” On Sunday night, the Society for Chamber Music in Rochester offers Parker’s prowess in the meltingly lovely “Piano Quartet in E-flat, Op.47.” — BY DAVID RAYMOND

I first caught Lydia Loveless upon Wayne “The Train” Hancock’s urging. Consequently, I listened to her with honky-tonk ears, or at least with some degree of rural expectation. When I saw her live, she played alone, accompanied by her lone guitar and a bold assertiveness amidst a noisy crowd. I admired her for her lack of drama and pretty voice (when I could hear it). I wanted more. So now at last, I sit beneath my headphones, and it’s just Loveless, her new CD “Somewhere Else,” and me. There’s definitely a twang, but it isn’t overly countrified. Loveless isn’t afraid to dig beyond the dirt and drawl and go straight to the asphalt and urgency of a more balls-out rock sound. It’s a bit like influence once removed, as Loveless takes nods from bands that were initially influenced by American roots and a dive-bar aesthetic, but which promptly went their own way. And if you were going to say, “Yeah, kind of like The Replacements,” I beat you to it. Loveless is lyrically more direct than Westerberg, but just as honest. Classic rock ’n’ roll themes of love and longing and love lost dominate “Somewhere Else,” simply because — more than anything else — this is a rock ’n’ roll record. And it’s a good one, too. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

its love of surf, its hate for The Beatles, and revealed that there actually is a surf scene in Rochester. An edited transcript of the conversation follows. City: How did RoarShark begin? Brian Gemme: Craigslist.

[ INTERVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE

Just replace the ink from a Rorschach test with some saltwater, and visualize surfboards and sharks and sandy beaches instead of the imagined, tell-tale images of hidden psychosis and genitalia, and you’ve got RoarShark. Or better still, assemble four Rochester rock ’n’ rollers into a tight, guitar-driven onslaught. Then add volume, liberal amounts of reverb, a strong back beat, and sit back and watch the aforementioned genitalia (backsides, anyway) boogie to the twang-centric rhythm of crashing waves. RoarShark has played excellent surf rock with a sci-fi, exotic-lounge undertow and a splash of mystical whimsy since it first washed ashore in 2010. Live, it’s a no-bullshit affair. Sure, there are fezzes and loud Hawaiian shits, but for the most part it’s just guitarists Brian Gemme and Josh Reiner, bassist Neil Bourke, and drummer Gary Yanni, and a few cheap TV sets piled on stage to paint the picture amidst the quartet’s modest Fender tweed back line. The foursome has been hard at work in both ACME and Saxon studios, laying its first full-length album to tape, with the working title “It Came From Lake Ontario.” RoarShark stopped by to discuss

No, seriously. Gemme: Seriously. I put up an ad on

Craigslist and these three guys answered.

Kind of like musicianmingle.com? Neil Bourke: It was the first ad I saw, and

the first one I responded to. I said, “I’ve got a Super Reverb, I can use it for surf.”

Who knows what kind of band you would have wound up in if you had scrolled down the list further — polka, klezmer... Josh Reiner: I can play klezmer. I have

an accordion.

Did you start off with covers, or did you dive right in to the original pool? Gemme: Our first few songs were covers, of

course. But we started writing pretty quickly thereafter. I would just come up with a basic riff and chord structure, and everyone just kind of jumped in. It felt natural.

Besides the obvious big Kahunas like Dick Dale and The Ventures, what influences the RoarShark roar? Reiner: Obviously Bach. My big influence

is Roy Buchanan. I’m just obsessed with instrumental music, that type of thing. I hate The Beatles because of what they did to it.

Let’s see, there’s The Isotopes, The Seabreezers, The Huckleberry Finns, and RoarShark. What do you know? It looks like there is a scene after all. Gemme: Yeah, I think it’s really catching on What do you think is surf rock’s appeal? Gemme: There are no words or story to

get in the way, basically.

So no plans to add a RoarShark singer to the on-stage equation? Would it take away from the instrumental simplicity? Bourke: I think if someone had the talent

as a singer it wouldn’t diminish the music, but often when you have the talent, you have the attitude. Sometimes there isn’t talent, and there’s still the attitude. Gemme: We structure songs as if we were planning to include lyrics, but we never put words to them. Maybe not vocals, but other instruments perhaps? Bourke: That’s something on the docket;

adding other instruments. There’s been talk of a sax, maybe a cello. We’re all pretty much multi-instrumentalists.

Without an assigned front man, what is the show part of RoarShark’s biz? Gemme: We do have “nitrous vision” —

a series of old black-and-white TVs on stage that show loops of old surf and sci-fi movies.

So you’re pretty much a straight-ahead surf outfit Reiner: Yeah, we haven’t strayed too far

from the A-minor, straight-beat type of surf sound. Who knows, maybe that would work well with klezmer. Gemme: Maybe…

POP/ROCK | THE FLESHTONES

Garage rock and those who park in that garage have come and gone, blasting out in full revival mode here, exacting its influence there. It’s no longer a mop-top throwback; hasn’t been for years. Within its ebb and flow remains one constant: The Fleshtones, baby. I first caught the band at Scorgies and it changed my life. With a discography that goes back to cassette-only release days, the band just rolled out its newest record, “Wheel of Talent,” in February on Yep Roc Records. It’s more of the organ and guitar-driven drive and mayhem we’ve all come to love. This NYC powerhouse promises and delivers. It’s borderline chaos and a goddamn riot. One of the most righteous live bands ever. The Fleshtones play Thursday March 6, 9 p.m., at Abilene Bar & Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. $12-$15. abilenebarandlounge.com. — BY FRANK DE BLASE Jimkata.

ile Russell was one of 500 hopefuls when he auditioned for the awardwinning, avant-garde dance company Pilobolus in 2009. He had been in New York City for a few years already, had danced with several small companies, and had started one of his own. He was looking for a new avenue for his creativity, a means of digging deeper for a voice to express what he wanted to say through movement. The directors painstakingly winnowed down the prospects over the course of several months, and Russell was one of two men chosen to join the company that year. “When I saw all the dancers auditioning I was already packing my bags mentally,” he told City in an interview last week. “I was floored when I eventually made it into the company. It’s been the biggest challenge of my life, and the most rewarding.” Russell says that the Pilobolus audition process mirrors the company’s collaborative creative process. When he auditioned, it began with large group, loose choreography (run, jump, turn) to see how the dancers moved through space. Then it went on to short, individual improvisational exercises, and then to combining bits of that improv work with those of other dancers. Eventually, a handful of these dancers were selected to take summer workshops at the company’s home base 22 CITY MARCH 5-11, 2014

in Washington Depot, Connecticut. And then finally the final cuts. “Pilobolus is about mining your creativity — physically, intellectually, spiritually, and emotionally,” Russell says. “We’re always pushing toward something new, whether it works or not. We take a road until the path is no longer there.” Thirty-one years old and a native of Baltimore, Russell is now a dance captain with Pilobolus, a liaison between the company and its directors. He schedules rehearsals, teaches master classes, and otherwise ensures that things are running smoothly both on and off the road. This Saturday, he will perform in four of the pieces that Pilobolus will present at Nazareth College Arts Center. It is the third time that the company has performed at Nazareth; the other two shows sold out. Pilobolus bills itself as a dance company,

but falls into that crossover zone between dance and theater because of its inclusion of gymnastics, shadow play, video imaging, juggling, magic, and other elements. The dancers’ movements are extreme — high octane, daring, and athletic. Company members have to possess great strength and flexibility to execute the moves. The group is known for the high level of physical interaction between dancers. They intertwine their bodies so intimately that it is often

difficult to gage where one body ends and another begins. They create unlikely human sculptures then rebound out of them with super-powered energy. Darren Stevenson, co-founder and director of local group PUSH Physical Theatre, has collaborated with Pilobolus members in workshop situations. He spoke to City recently about the way the company has impacted dance. “Pilobolus was pooh-poohed by the dance world for a long time,” Stevenson says. “In a lot of classical people’s minds, it wasn’t dance. PUSH gets the same thing. We’re not really dance and we’re not really theater. People try to put you in a box. I think Pilobolus’ genius is that they were able to drop all their own perceptions of what dance should be and begin from the ground up.” One of the pieces to be performed this weekend, “Ocellus” (1972), is the second work the company ever created (its repertoire now includes more than 115 pieces) and incorporates close contact between a quartet of men, Russell being one of them. This connecting of bodies to create new forms was something that was largely unexplored in the dance world until Pilobolus headed down that road. (By the way, program notes warn that the performance “may contain nudity.” “May” refers, apparently, to personal interpretation of the word

“nudity.” In any case, this is the work that may or may not contain it.) “Licks” (2013) also has me curious. Publicity photos from this work show a woman dancer looped, bondage style, with rope, and the piece is described as sexy, fantastical and full of hijinks. Sounds like fun to me. Russell says that it is his favorite piece to perform, and explains that the intent is for the rope props take on a life of their own, so to speak. “How do we give them life, energy? The hope is that the ropes aren’t seen as being held by us in the end, but have come to life,” Russell says. Stevenson offers his own audience advice for viewing Pilobolus’ work: “Audiences should keep in mind that although what they do looks difficult already, it is actually so much more difficult than it even looks. So much harder than you would think. Insanely difficult.” continues on page 30

DANCE | “AN AFTERNOON OF WINTER FANCIES”

In support of Writers & Books’ “If All of Rochester Read the Same Book” program and this year’s selection of “The Snow Child” by Eowyn Ivey, Hochstein School of Music and Dance (50 N. Plymouth Ave.) is hosting a day packed with family-fun winter activities. The event titled “An Afternoon of Winter Fancies” begins on Saturday, March 8, at 3 p.m. with a Creative Movement Workshop. Held in the dance studio, this event brings the Hochstein dance department’s faculty and students on the dance floor to lead you and your family through improvisational dancing. The event will be accompanied by Hochstein music students performing a variety of tunes to fit the snowy weather. This event is open to ages 3 and older. After the dance workshop, pirouette your way to the Performance Hall for “Flight of Winter Fancy,” a collection of winter-inspired dance pieces performed by the school’s dance faculty, students, and friends. The show, beginning at 4:15 p.m., will feature Mariah Maloney, an Alaska native and assistant professor of dance at SUNY Brockport, as the headliner. The show is open to the public and both activities are free of charge. For more information, visit hochstein.org or call 454-4596. — BY TAYLOR WHITE [ SAT., MARCH 8 ] Second Saturday.

THEATER | “STRANDED ON EARTH”

Playwright Eric Coble continues his “Alexandra” trilogy with “Stranded on Earth,” the next production on the Geva Theatre Nextstage (75 Woodbury Blvd.). This play tells the missing tale between “A Girl’s Guide to Coffee,” where audiences first met Alex, a vivacious 20-something with her whole life ahead of her, and “The Velocity of Autumn,” where we again meet Alex, now in her 80’s, desperately holding on to her world when everyone around her is telling her to let go. “Stranded” finds Alex as a 40-year-old woman wrestling with the choices she’s made in life. Despite being the written third in the trilogy, “Stranded” is the second play in the series. Geva favorite Brigitt Markusfeld plays Alexandra in this production. The show previews on Thursday-Friday, March 6-7, at 7 p.m. and Saturday, March 8, at 2:30 p.m., and officially opens Saturday at 7:30p.m. Shows continue through March 23. Ticket prices start at $30.

SPECIAL EVENT | LATTE ART THROWDOWN

I think I can speak for all us Western New Yorkers when I say that we ready for spring. Regrettably, we still have a few more weeks of this frigid season to overcome. In the meantime, warm up at Joe Bean Coffee Roasters (1344 University Ave.) at its Latte Art Throwdown this Thursday, March 6, at 7 p.m. as part of the weekly Nexus Nights series. The theme for this particular throwdown will be “Legendary Luchador,” which encourages competitors to dress in costume or wear capes for added fun. The event is open to all local baristas and costs $5 to participate (winner takes home the pot). Spectators are welcome and it is free to view the coffee-making kerfuffle. Food and drink specials will be available throughout the night. This time around, guest judges will be Amber from Eat Me Ice Cream, who will be joined by fellow ice-cream aficionado, Cate. The duo just returned from a trip to Nicaragua, and will be sampling ice cream inspired by the trip, including one made with Joe Bean’s Don Roger coffee.

Terror in the air “Non-Stop”

(PG-13), DIRECTED BY JAUME COLLET-SERRA NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA

Although it fits quite obviously into that broad, vague category of the cinematic thriller, the new movie “Non-Stop” actually contains an unusual combination of elements. It takes place almost entirely inside an airplane flying across the Atlantic from New York to London, establishing a setting and situation naturally fraught with a certain tension, even before the action reveals the presence of a killer and a bomb on board.

That tightly controlled enclosure provides other threads of action and meaning that demonstrate additional possibilities in a location perhaps all too familiar in both film and life. Liam Neeson plays Bill Marks, an ex-cop, now a federal air marshal assigned to the flight, along with a colleague, Jack Hammond (Anson Mount), apparently a routine pairing of the two. Marks starts his assignment with a shot of booze in his coffee, providing the first hint of an alcoholism that influences much of the ensuing action. On board he confesses his dislike of flying, an odd problem considering his profession, to his seatmate, Jen Summers (Julianne Moore), who helps him through the takeoff, initiating a relationship that develops in several unexpected directions throughout the flight. The film’s central problem arises when Marks receives a text message on his supposedly secure phone, informing him that someone on the flight will die in 20 minutes, and others 20

minutes after that, a promise that the sender fulfills right on schedule. The sender, who texts Marks throughout the film, demands $150 million to be placed in a special account, threatening more killings if he doesn’t get the money. When Marks communicates the threat to his supervisor in Washington, the boss, like so many of his ilk, refuses to support the agent, and then later betrays him. As the tension progresses and the killer continues to carry out his threats, Marks’s quest for his antagonist grows increasingly desperate. Frantic and puzzled, he begins to suspect everybody, from the flight attendants to the co-pilot, implying a paranoia that perfectly suits both the situation in the airplane and his own personal history, involving a tragedy in his past. On their seat televisions the passengers see the news stories about their plight, all of which, thanks to his supervisor, accuse Marks of hijacking the plane. With all its shocks and twists, its ingenious notion of a pursuit within the claustrophobic confines of an airplane and the necessarily heightened emotion of danger at 35,000 feet and 500 miles an hour, the movie sustains a terrific level of tension. Once it establishes the basic situation, it never allows the suspense to diminish, then complicates it with several back stories and the reactions of various passengers. Aside from the frequent episodes of quite brutal violence, when Marks struggles with several different passengers who question his

Fight or flight “The Wind Rises” (PG-13), DIRECTED BY HAYAO MIYAZAKI NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW

authority and his methods, the film actually resembles a classic detective story. Its enclosed, isolated setting resembles those snowbound hotels or grand country houses where a clever sleuth searches for a murderer among a limited cast of suspects; in fact, both Agatha Christie and John Dickson Carr wrote novels about a murder on an airplane. Like any fictional detective, in “Non-Stop” Bill Marks sorts through a number of possible culprits, deals with false clues, follows red herrings, and ultimately solves a couple of murders through the same cerebral methods as the investigators of those novels, a Hercule Poirot or Henry Merrivale. He even discovers that the murderer employs the same modus operandi as the villains in those classic novels. Following Neeson’s starring roles in the two very successful “Taken” movies (apparently another is in the works), the media commentators suggest he is now another action hero, lumping him in the same category as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Jason Statham, or Vin Diesel. As a number of his performances suggest, however, Neeson possesses a great deal more versatility and depth than that crew of muscular mesomorphs. A big man with a powerful screen presence, he recalls a great star like Burt Lancaster, a strong man with a strong man’s gentleness, a strong man’s dignity, even a strong man’s vulnerability. His craggy features are marked by pain and confusion, his strength tempered by a measure of melancholy.

When legendary Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki announced in September of last year that “The Wind Rises” was to be his final film, it was hard not to feel a sadness at what audiences would be losing without any more of his imaginative, lushly animated films. True, the director has promised retirement several times in the past, only to eventually reconsider. Visually stunning and morally complex, his supposedly final film is a fantastic achievement. If it does turn out that his retirement sticks this time, “The Wind Rises” would make for a fitting end to a remarkable career. Though the film contains none of the more fantastical elements that the filmmaker behind “My Neighbor Totoro” and “Spirited Away” is known for, it’s clear that the story he’s telling is a deeply personal one. There’s a wistful, occasionally mournful finality to the film that feels very much like a farewell. “The Wind Rises” tells a fictionalized version of the life story of Japanese

Mr. Caproni and Jiro Horikoshi in “The Wind Rises.” PHOTO COURTESY TOUCHSTONE PICTURES

aeronautics engineer Jiro Horikoshi. As a child at the dawn of the 20th century, he dreams of flying, but his poor eyesight prevents him from becoming a pilot. He decides that if he can’t fly planes, then he’s going to make a career out of designing them instead. He’s a genius engineer, always looking for ways to improve his work and create beautiful aircrafts, like the ones he sees in his dreams. Jiro lands a job working for the Mitsubishi corporation, and it’s there that his obsessive pursuit of perfection ultimately leads him to design the A6M Zero bombers used by the Japanese army during World War II, most infamously in their attack on Pearl Harbor. Miyazaki’s film has not been without controversy, with a number of critics accusing the film of whitewashing history by glossing over the deadly results of Jiro’s work. But to make that argument seems to miss the point of the film entirely. The conflict at the heart of the film is whether or not realizing one’s dreams is worth it, if the results will cause harm to a great many people. Jiro is a genius who wants nothing more than to create something beautiful. The rising tide of war creeps around the edges of his life; he’s always aware of it, and knows how his work is being put to use. But he chooses to focus on the beauty and purity of his creations instead of the destruction they’ll bring. Miyazaki’s film most clearly lays out these ideas during several dream sequences, as Jiro imagines himself in conversation with his boyhood idol, Italian engineer Giovanni Caproni. It’s Caproni who tells Jiro early on that “the dream of aviation is cursed,” with the wonder of flight constantly being perverted and twisted into something that’s so often used for evil. It’s hard not to flash back to those indelible images of 9/11 and realize how much truth there is in that statement. It’s in these dreams that we’re allowed to see the inner conflict Jiro keeps suppressed. “I choose to live in a world with pyramids,” Caproni

says, with the implication being that those wonders wouldn’t have been made without the manpower of an enslaved people. As with the similar criticisms raised against Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street” — that that film was glorifying the depraved behavior of its characters — people seem to have a problem when directors opt not to spell out for audiences exactly how they should feel. The film depicting the ways in which Jiro willingly puts blinders on when it comes to how his creations are being utilized in the real world is very different from Miyazaki himself ignoring those effects. Miyazaki is above all a humanist; he doesn’t ask us to agree with Jiro, but he does attempt to get us to understand him. The director’s work has always contained strong environmentalist and anti-war messages, and “The Wind Rises” is no different. The last third of the film shifts gears slightly, allowing a love story that’s introduced early in the film to gradually take center stage. Jiro develops a relationship with a young woman named Naoko. Jiro learns that Naoko has tuberculosis, and though that doesn’t stop the two from falling in love, Jiro remains focused on his work even as her sickness progresses. The love story feels underdeveloped, but it’s easy to see how Jiro’s tunnel vision allowing his career to trump his personal life may have personal resonance with the Miyazaki. The version of the “The Wind Rises” playing in American theaters is dubbed in English and produced by Disney. As with the American releases of many of Miyazaki’s previous films, the dubbing process was overseen by John Lasseter, Pixar’s chief creative officer, and it is impeccably done. The American vocal cast includes Joseph Gordon-Levitt, John Krasinski, and Emily Blunt, and while they all contribute fine work, they also have recognizable voices. That occasionally distracts as viewers try to mentally place whose voice they’re hearing.

DINE IN & TAKE OUT

Award-winning dance company Pilobolus has sold out its previous performances at Nazareth College Arts Center. It returns this weekend for a third engagement. PHOTOS BY GRANT HALVERSON

Pilobolus was founded in 1971, the unlikely brainchild of a group of Dartmouth College students with little dance background. The group’s name comes from a fungus that grows on cow dung and propels its spores with extreme strength speed and accuracy. By 1977, Pilobolus was performing on Broadway in limited engagement at the St. James Theater. Arlene Croce of The New Yorker called the members “six of the most extraordinary people now performing.” Today, Pilobolus artistic directors Renee Jaworski and Matt Kent are the faces of the company, creating alongside original founder Michael Tracy. Pilobolus has given more than 5,000 performances in more than 64 countries, and appears regularly on television. Appearances include the 2007 Academy Awards, “60 Minutes,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” “Sesame Street,” and “Oprah.” The company is also adept at commercial application of its movement design and production. Its 30 CITY MARCH 5-11, 2014

television spots include commercials for Mobil, Ford, Toyota, Procter and Gamble, and an Emmy-nominated spot for the NFL Network. Pilobolus is even in the Guinness Book of World Records for fitting the most people into a Mini Cooper. Among the numerous prizes and awards Pilobolus has been awarded, the 2010 Dance Magazine Award for lasting contribution to the field of dance stands out. Never before had the magazine honored a collective rather than an individual, a fitting tribute for a company that is based on creating through an innovative group creative process. “All choreography, all movement is from the bodies of the dancers,” Russell says. “It is created through improv, theater work, playing around in the studio. The directors are driving the cars with the original ideas, but we create the landscape they drive through.”

Stepping up the entrance at the side of the house, you enter into a vestibule lined with coat hooks and pass through the first set of leaded glass doors. From the front hall you can see up a polished wood staircase glowing with light from a row of windows on the first landing. To the left of the entrance hall is a large living room with an enormous bay window that looks out the front of the house. At the other end is a brick fireplace with a gas insert set between built-in bookcases with leaded glass doors—a cozy spot for reading. From this room a door leads to a neat, three-season porch, surrounded by windows. Back through the entrance hall, which has a roomy coat closet and a discreet powder room, you will find another set of leaded glass doors to an elegant dining room. To the

back of the dining room is a smaller room that may have been a pantry at one time but is now an inviting sitting room or office. Also off the dining room is the entrance to the newly remodeled eat-in kitchen. White cabinets complement sleek black counters and new appliances. Bright light pours in from a south-facing window and a door that leads out to the deck and fully fenced backyard. With a landscaped in-ground pool, you’ll need go no further than your own background for relief and relaxation during the hottest days of summer. On the second floor, the graceful master bedroom spans the entire front of the house and has its own set of leaded glass doors to a dressing room and a pair of closets. A full bath and two more bedrooms with an enclosed sleeping porch complete this level. The third floor offers a spacious fourth bedroom, a full bath and plenty of closets for storage. This home is conveniently located a short walking distance to both Cobbs Hill Park and to all Park Avenue has to offer, for an asking price of $299,000.
