A Squirrel that gathers causes On almost any day or evening, the Flying Squirrel Community Space is home to a potpourri of progressive artists, musicians, and social justice activists. The Squirrel is a meeting space. But it’s also an organization with its own members, who often describe it as a collective: a community that’s part of other communities. The Squirrel’s foyer is feathered with pamphlets and flyers about meetings on everything from reproductive rights to anarchy.
Located on Clarissa Street in one of the city’s early African-American communities, the Squirrel’s site was once home to one of the first black Elks clubs in the country. And in the mid-20th century, the building was at the center of Clarissa Street’s jazz scene. The Squirrel still honors the Elks’ tradition of community service and continues to host a robust music lineup of local bands. (Pictured: Rich Riggs and Taima Probst at the Squirrel's Whirly Wednesday dance night.)

Minimum wage and poverty
Our January 27 guest commentary, “Partisanship, Poverty, and Paychecks,” on the need for raising the minimum wage, set up a lively reader dialogue on our website. Some excerpts: Not true. Johnson spent over $200 billion on the Vietnam War. Reagan spent hundreds of billions on “ending the Cold War.” We have redistributed wealth upwards for four decades. There are more people living in poverty because the vast majority of economic gains have been in the top 1 percent of the population, who aren’t the “job creators” but are greedy. They are sitting on trillions in unused capital right now that they could be using to create jobs. We have also sent millions of jobs overseas for decades, because people in China and India don’t need health care or retirement plans (that’s sarcasm, by the way). We’ve spent very little fighting the war on poverty and a great deal expanding it. SETH
Exactly; in fact, at the height of the Vietnam War under LBJ, we were spending in three weeks on Vietnam what we were spending in one year on all of the Great Society programs combined. And under Reagan, aid to cities fell 59 percent, but the wealthiest 1 percent got 55 percent of Reagan’s tax cuts. TROLL WHISPERER
One of the biggest problems in this debate is the validity of both sides’ arguments. The 2 CITY
MARCH 6-12, 2013
system is not working to raise anybody out of poverty. And raising the minimum wage isn’t going to lift more than a few people out of poverty, and then not for very long. Continuing to fight a failed “War on Poverty” with the same weapons we’ve been using will result in more failed battles. Who are the impoverished, for the most part? Those without a college education, and frequently without a high school diploma. What jobs are being created here in America under the current “recovery”? High tech and service industry. The service industry isn’t growing fast enough or paying well enough to keep up with the “demand” for employment. High tech will continue to be out of reach of the undereducated. We need more jobs that pay a living wage that are also open to the undereducated. Whether this means we step back from some technologies and build products that can be repaired by people instead of being disposable, or we end incentivizing the off-shoring of jobs, or some other method, until we can employ all the employable, we will not solve this problem using either Democratic or Republican methods. Also, if/when we ever get those jobs back, we need to return to the days of significant unionization of the workforce. I have no idea why conservatives hate unions. They are voluntary assemblages of people working on behalf of their own selfinterest. I know no one who works in a union “shop” who wishes it were otherwise, and know plenty who would appreciate the benefits of having their entire company’s workforce behind them. Given the likelihood of either recommendation ever coming to fruition, I’m quite certain that the arguers over this issue will continue to argue over and past each other, solving nothing. Only big business and bankers benefit – as they always do when the people are getting screwed over. YUGOBOY

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
Before school and after school care available
What if we’re chasing the wrong ‘schools’ fix? One of the more thought-provoking articles I’ve read recently is Jerry Muller’s “Capitalism and Inequality,” in Foreign Affairs. The subject: the United States’ growing income inequality. Liberals and conservatives alike will find plenty to dislike in what Muller says, but some of his points are hard to argue with. We’re spending enormous amounts of money and energy trying to address the country’s growing inequality, he says, and it’s not doing much to erase the gap. In a capitalist country, says Muller, the problem isn’t equality of opportunity. In fact, he says, expanding opportunity tends to increase inequality, because some people are able to take advantage of the opportunity better than others. And that, he notes, stems both from our innate human potential – what we’re born with – and from how well our family and our community have nurtured that capital. And, he adds, it’s “hard to overstate” the importance of the family: “To use the language of contemporary economics, the family is a workshop in which human capital is produced.” Muller’s article covers a wide range of topics, but the one I kept going back to was education: the inequality of academic achievement among US students, what we’re doing to address it, and the influence of the family on that achievement. We’ve long believed that for the poor, schools offer the best route to a successful future. It’s a jolt, then, to come across Muller’s contention that rather than helping reduce the achievement gap between children, education is likely increasing it. It’s not that Muller thinks education isn’t important. But it is not, he insists, “a panacea.” And so we end up with lots of college students who can’t do college-level work, forcing colleges to offer remedial courses. We focus on boosting the achievement of students while they’re in high school – even though we know that the problem didn’t start there. We focus on elementary school, and on pre-school. And we come up with reforms: more programs, “school choice,” charter schools, “teacher accountability.” We argue about standardized testing. And we spend a lot of money. And not much changes. It’s not that these efforts aren’t important. They are. But they don’t address the core problem: the “capital,” as Muller puts it, that some children start school with and some do not. The most the reform initiatives can do is address the results of that lack of capital. Schools can’t work miracles.
Americans may think that schools can eliminate the achievement gap among children. But maybe it’s just making the gap worse. Bring up the issue of family influence, and you can be accused of blaming the parents. That avoids dealing with the issue. It’s not that inner-city parents don’t care about their children’s education and their future. But we are experiencing multiplegenerational poverty. That is having a real effect, on families, and on neighborhoods, and we can’t ignore that fact. Muller comes close to concluding that there’s not much we can do about inequality in education, that we just need to make sure we provide support for those left behind. In a recent Urban Studies article, Harvard’s William Julius Wilson and James M. Quane point down a better path. There are ways for inner-city children to overcome the negative influences of cities’ concentrated poverty, they write, and society needs to provide those ways: services for families, for children and adolescents, for ex-prisoners; job training and availability; decent wages…. Locally, individual segments of the larger community try to provide some of those things. But money is tight and likely to get tighter. And as a society, we haven’t faced the real problem and its magnitude. It’s easier to focus on easy targets like schools and parents, and blame them. Muller offers a reminder that schools cannot do the job we’re expecting them to do. We can blame parents if we like, but they can’t do the job themselves, either. And the longer we avoid dealing with the roots of our education inequality, the worse it will get.

GUEST COMMENTARY | BY MICHAEL BROWN AND ANA LISS
Two brains refuse to drain David Brooks made us mad. He did it in his January 24 New York Times column, “The Great Migration.” He did it by highfiving the demographic group we belong to while dissing the kind of city we call home. Brooks argues that American higher education “sucks up some of the smartest people from across the country and concentrates them in a few privileged places.” Freshmen may arrive at Ivy League dormitories from sleepy second-tier cities or small towns, but by the time they depart with degrees, they have been intellectually and culturally transformed such that only a life in Washington, San Francisco, or Boston is possible for them. “They learn how to behave the way successful people do in [these] highly educated hubs,” says Brooks. “There’s no economic reason to return home, and maybe it’s not even socially possible anymore.” In short, these young folks are ready to take their place among the economic, political, and cultural elite. They may return for Christmas. They may gather at bars to watch the sports team from back home. They may even linger over a vision of retiring to the place they grew up – on particularly hard days in what Brooks calls “the relentless quest for distinction.” But these are visions indeed, for Brooks’ column makes clear that there is only one reality: the inexorable, inevitable, and ultimately desirable tectonic shift whereby ambitious, credentialed, and creative people move to a few large cities while leaving behind communities that are fated to wither and die. Brooks might have saved several thousand keystrokes by simply declaring: “The strong cities will survive, and the weak shall perish – as they must!” For he is at bottom a Social Darwinist of place, whose admiration for this process is palpable. Brooks echoes Charles Tiebout’s theory of municipal sorting, which posits that individuals use their freedom of choice and unique sets of values to move from one place to another until they find the one that maximizes their personal utility. But the Tiebout hypothesis came up against criticism for ignoring the importance of pride of place, of family roots, and of cultural connectedness. These kinds of benefits accrue despite the presumed career booster of choosing a place like San Francisco over Flint, Michigan, for example. Urban theorist Richard Florida responds
to Brooks in a January 30 contribution to The Atlantic’s “Cities” called “More Losers than Winners in America’s New Economic Geography.” He doesn’t contest the account that Brooks offers or that Tiebout might, but he does dwell upon its downside. Florida shows that talent clustering in large metropolitan regions contributes to economic 4 CITY
MARCH 6-12, 2013
inequalities because the benefits of such clusters “flow disproportionately to more highly-skilled […] workers.” The considerably higher cost of living in knowledge-based metros is only offset by the income gains that the most highly paid workers in those areas receive. Less affluent folks are either priced out of the hub cities or are forced to stay there and take the hit in real income. While Florida warns of the costs of the “Great Migration,” Brooks sees it as something akin to Joseph Schumpeter’s “creative destruction.” The lifeblood – in the form of smart kids – from the wayside places must be drained so that it can feed the thumping heart of our biggest cities, which pump out the innovations that power our society. Brooks honors this process as “meritocratic,” one that allows the talented to become part of the “positive ecology” of large cities, where productivity is raised to a fever pitch. Such thinking stood behind Brooks’ appreciation of Mitt Romney, just as it stood behind the work Romney did at Bain Capital. Romney’s business model at Bain was to pick apart smaller companies, salvaging the divisions or assets that held market value while consigning the rest to unemployment statistics and bankruptcy courts. Some defended this practice on the grounds that it made the overall economy a leaner, meaner, productive machine. Now imagine Bain buying a small city instead of a small company. They fly in and extract the top 10 students from each high school, choppering them off to elite colleges and leaving the rest of the inhabitants to ultimately become recipients of the federal government’s redistributive largesse. (A major claim in Brooks’ column is that the Obama administration has embarked upon a fool’s errand to prop up the losers in our society – whether these losers are people or places. As he concludes, “meritocracy is overwhelming the liberal project.”) We read Brooks from a peculiar vantage point. In one sense, we’re the people he’s writing about. We grew up in the suburbs of Rochester, and we were indeed vacuumed up by elite

universities: Cornell, Penn, and the London School of Economics. We earned postgraduate degrees and we lived in big hub cities. But then we did something that Brooks’ thinking has no capacity to compute: we chose Rochester. There were many reasons to make that
call. We wanted to be with our families and to enjoy them. We wanted to enhance the quality of our lives, even if it cost us in quantity of status or power. We felt that Rochester did indeed have the “positive ecology” that Brooks and Florida envision in only a few key cities: opportunities for creative engagement, cultural ferment, and entrepreneurial innovation. And we thought it had an enriched ecosystem beyond what the hub cities might offer: a blend of compelling history and architecture with the palpable and beautiful presence of the natural environment. It has all of this at a dramatically lower cost of living, a cost of living that allows one to take risks – because you can take a risk and still make rent. Most crucially, we were attracted to Rochester by the presence here of thoughtful, committed people who share a sense that attaching their lives to the fate of their community is not something to be done out of duty; it is something to be done as a means of personal fulfillment. Rochester holds out a set of civic possibilities for us. It gives us the opportunity not just to live in a place, but to work for that place. It’s our hometown, and we’ll be damned if we’re going to let it go extinct. Brooks says that the culture of meritocracy “encourages you to go anywhere
on your quest for self-fulfillment.” We are on a quest too, even a quest for self-fulfillment. But we know that a fully realized life is one that includes a sense of civic participation, one that makes room for commitment to community. We each faced turning points in our lives where we had to decide whether to explore these ideals or abandon them, whether to continue rising in the “relentless quest for distinction” or to become relentless in our determination to forge a different path. We chose the second course, and we believe that there are millions like us who have done the same. What do these millions mean for Brooks’ “Great Migration”? Well, one meaning is obvious: that unlike migratory birds, migratory human beings have a choice. We can allow our lives to conform to the large patterns in our society, until those patterns take on a sense of inevitability, or we can recall that every large pattern is, at bottom, a composite of countless human decisions. If we make different decisions, we have the power to change the pattern. Once we realize that the “Great Migration” is no longer inevitable – and it’s certainly not – then we must ask, is it desirable? We’ve found an answer to that question for ourselves; we hope others will join us. Michael Brown and Ana Liss are the past and current presidents, respectively, of the Monroe County Young Democrats. Brown is earning his PhD. in history at the University of Rochester, studying the place of intellectuals in American political culture.

Towns focus on farmland the towns are contributing a total of $3,000. The area of Chili south of Black Creek, as well as parts of Wheatland, have fairly wet soils, says Chili Supervisor David Dunning. But they are also rich soils, so they make for productive farmland. In the past, valuable farmland within both towns, as well as in other communities, has been sold for development. “It’s something we need to look at and make sure that as our town grows or spreads out or things happen that we’re protecting that element,” Dunning says.
In Chili, nearly as much land is devoted to agriculture as is used for housing. And Wheatland, Chili’s neighbor to the south, actually has more farmland than residential acreage. Elected officials in the two western Monroe County communities have teamed up and are in the early stages of developing a plan to preserve their farmland. Currently, officials are searching for a consultant to help put the plan together. They’ve received a $50,000 grant from the State Department of Agriculture and Markets to assist with the costs and

The potential loss of farmland was identified as a priority issue in Chili’s comprehensive plan, which the town completed in late 2011. And the idea to develop a farmland protection plan grew out of that process. Chili and Wheatland officials want the plan to identify land for preservation, Dunning says, and to lay out approaches to do so. Other local towns have used a variety of approaches and incentives, from purchasing development rights to offering tax incentives for conservation easements.
The federal government considers married same-sex couples to be individuals. That means that one of the big financial advantages of marriage — filing joint statements with the federal government — is denied to these couples.
TAXES | BY JEREMY MOULE
LGBT | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO
Gay, married, and taxed Tax season isn’t something people usually celebrate, but many married same-sex couples are finding it even more of a grind. Married couples in New York State can file jointly or as individuals. They shouldn’t assume that one is better than the other, so preparers will likely review what the return would look like for both scenarios. But the problem for same-sex married couples is with the federal return. Even though New York recognizes same-sex marriage, the federal government does not because of the Defense of Marriage Act. The federal government considers the couple to be individuals. That means that one of the big financial advantages of marriage — filing joint statements with the federal government — is denied to same-sex married couples. “On the federal return, if you have a couple where one person is not working outside the home, the person cannot be filed as a dependent,” says Sheila Cahill, a licensed tax preparer in the Rochester area. Cahill has many LGBT clients and says the federal government fails to recognize that the wife or husband may be staying home to raise children, for example. Another basic difference has to do with tax rates. “A lot depends on the incomes between the couple and on the disparity between the
incomes,” Cahill says. “The first $20,000 of a single person’s income is taxed at about 15 percent, but for a married couple it would be roughly the first $35,000.” Cahill says samesex couples don’t always pay more than opposite-sex couples because there are a lot of variables; it depends on the credits and allowances permitted, she says. But many experts say that same-couple ILLUSTRATION BY couples are likely MATT DETURCK to be at a financial disadvantage in several areas including pensions, the gift tax, and the federal estate tax. Cahill says for simple filings, the commercial software programs are fine and are more up to date with the marriage law in New York. But if the returns have complications, she advises working with a professional tax preparer.

Zachary Ceru placed his toy hoop over his
head and stepped out on the dance floor. The brightly-colored ring glowed in the dark as it swung from Ceru’s neck with hooping’s familiar twirl. After a minute or two, Ceru let the hoop drop over his torso to his waste, where it rolled around his hips and abdomen with ease. Ceru was one of about 40 hoopers at a recent Whirly Wednesday, one of the Flying Squirrel Community Space’s most popular weekly events. By 9 p.m. most Wednesdays, the Squirrel’s second floor holds a hoard of mostly young hoopers, gyrating in the dark to thumping dance mixes. “I’ve been doing this for about nine months,” Ceru says. “It’s sort of like dancing, but it’s different.” The Flying Squirrel Community Space at 285 Clarissa Street is home to a potpourri of progressive artists, musicians, and social justice activists. If visitors weren’t interested in the carnival whimsy of Whirly Wednesday, for example, they could’ve joined a Take Back the Land meeting under way simultaneously on the Squirrel’s first floor. That night, about 20 Take Back the Land activists discussed how they could help a woman reacquire her northeast-area home of 30 years. The home had been foreclosed upon. The Squirrel is partly a meeting space. But it’s also an organization with its own members, who tend to describe it as a collective: a community that’s part of other communities. There’s a gritty sense of multiplicity about the Squirrel that’s immediately 8 CITY

evident once you’re inside the front door. The foyer is feathered with pamphlets and flyers about meetings on everything from reproductive rights to anarchy. And most of the building’s rooms serve multiple purposes: a meeting room can be transformed into a dining hall and a dance floor can be converted to a classroom. Rochester Indymedia, the Green Party, and Worker Justice — an activist group for low-wage workers — are some of the groups that meet at the Squirrel. But the groups change and new groups form. Last month, some members began forming the Free School, an information exchange with classes like building a solar oven and permaculture. The Squirrel also hosts a robust music lineup of local bands. Community dinners and neighborhood socials are popular events, too. In some respects, the Squirrel’s roots can be traced to the European salons of
the 17th and 18th centuries, which were sanctuaries for art, philosophy, literature,
central belief; often it was a return to an agrarian lifestyle, simplicity, and a rejection of consumerism. Some of those concerns bare an uncanny resemblance to the Squirrel’s “Principles of Unity,” the doctrine that binds members to the collective. It says community is the pathway to freedom, and that racism, sexism, heterosexism, and especially capitalism, are opposed. Conflicts are resolved, as much as possible, through alternative justice solutions that don’t rely on police intervention. The Squirrel began a few years ago with about nine founding members, says co-founder Dawn Zuppelli. Many of the founders knew each other from the now closed Storefront Antiwar Crisis Center, formerly at 658 Monroe Avenue. The principles are the members’ core values, Zuppelli says, and came about after a lot of discussion.
application forms, but members generally agree to volunteer some of their time each month toward some type of administrative or building maintenance need. What is less fluid, Zuppelli says, is how the Squirrel operates. “It is so horizontally structured,” she says. “All members are created equal.” Members only speak about the Squirrel from their own perspective, but no one speaks on behalf of the Squirrel or its members, Zuppelli says. And no one member makes decisions on behalf of everyone, she says. All decisions are made through reaching a consensus. “It can be more time-consuming, but it’s also more fun and creative,” she says.

“We don’t often get to experience this in the outside world.” Ted Forsyth, another Squirrel co-founder, says methodology is important to the members. “We trade-in expediency and efficiency for a sort of patience and accountability,” he says. “We don’t expect any one person to be a leader. We’re all leaders.”
Before purchasing the building on Clarissa Street, Forsyth says there were a lot of activist groups meeting in Rochester on issues ranging from education to homelessness. Meetings were held everywhere from cafes to shelters. The groups at the Squirrel are autonomous, he says, and their members aren’t necessarily members of the Squirrel. But the Squirrel serves more as a clearinghouse, Forsyth says, and what makes it dynamic is the opportunity to comingle, share ideas, and sometimes work with other activists and artists. “I wouldn’t call it [the Squirrel] a movement,” Forsyth says. “But it’s sort of facilitating movements.” The Squirrel’s location is significant, too,
says longtime member Ricardo Adams, because of Clarissa Street’s rich history as one of the main business and cultural arteries of Rochester’s African-American community. “This was a 99 percent, maybe 100 percent black community,” he says. “And it was a vibrant community. We had
everything from corner grocery stores and clothing stores to barbershops and entertainment. You didn’t really even have to leave Clarissa Street. It all happened right here.” Even the Squirrel’s building is historically significant, Adams says. In 1906, the Elks Lodge No. 91 Flower City Chapter and the Eldorado Temple No. 32 Auxiliary used the site for their meetings. The mostly African-American membership met there after being rejected by the Benevolent Protective Order of the Elks of the World, a largely white organization at the time. When the Squirrel’s founding members purchased the rundown and abandoned building for roughly $35,000, they decided to leave the old Elks bar as a reminder of their work, Adams says. And some of the Elks’ meeting minutes and notes have been archived, he says. “They really did a lot for this community,” he says. “They provided scholarships and they supported the people in a lot of different ways.”
Clarissa Street’s musical legacy is also well-documented. During the mid-20th century, jazz artists from all over the country played at the Pythodd Club, and what is now Clarissa’s night club. The latter is located next door to the Squirrel. These days, Adams and his wife, Rochester school board member Mary Adams, have resumed some of the Elks’ neighborhood work. They coordinate a community dinner at the Squirrel on the last Saturday evening of the month. “We’ve served as many as 70 people here,” Richardo Adams says. “And we do it without help from Wegmans or Foodlink or any of the big organizations. This is just people helping people.” Last month, Mary Adams made fish fry plates for about 30 people. Other volunteers brought Greek salad, rice and beans, and brownies for dessert. “By the last Saturday of the month, food gets low for a lot of families,” she says. “I do this because I believe building our community is the answer to most of our problems.”
I do this because I believe building our community is the answer to most of our problems.” MARY ADAMS
And the Squirrel is contributing to Clarissa Street’s musical legacy, too, says longtime Squirrel member Al Brundage. “When they [Squirrel members] said we need to have a manager on site if we’re going to be a music venue, I said, ‘I’ll do it,’ without giving it a second thought and I love it,” he says. Brundage says the Squirrel is an important music venue in Rochester, especially for younger musicians and band members. The Squirrel doesn’t serve or allow alcohol on the premises, which makes it easier for a band of underage musicians to play there. The policy also makes it easier for younger fans to come hear the bands. Most of the bands play some type of punk, and one band in particular, The Setbacks, got its start playing at the Squirrel, Brundage says. “Now they’re playing Buffalo and Syracuse, and all over the place,” he says. continues on page 10

But the Squirrel has had to clear some hurdles, too. In the Squirrel’s early
days, there were a few complaints from neighbors about the noise from the bands. But the Squirrel’s members have addressed those concerns, Brundage says. Amplified music ends at 10 p.m. and acoustic may go to 11 p.m., he says. Long-term funding was another issue that needed to be addressed. While the Squirrel accepts donations, it doesn’t apply for grants like most nonprofits. The members don’t want to become part of what they call the “nonprofit industrial complex.” Grants create a false sense of security, some members say, and often come with strings attached that dictate not only how the money can be spent, but how the Squirrel needs to operate to be eligible. So members came up with a promotion, “25@25: Keeping the Squirrel Alive.” Participants pay $25 a month for a year in exchange for the ability to hold two free events at the Squirrel, such as a birthday or graduation party. The money is just enough to handle repairs and emergencies,” members say. One of the Squirrel’s most difficult tests came when members decided that a particular activist group could no longer hold its meetings there. Individual
members of that group are still welcome at the Squirrel, but the group’s tactics and philosophy began to conflict with the Squirrel’s principles of unity, says cofounder Dawn Zuppelli. The decision was an emotionally charged one, she says, because the Squirrel was founded on inclusivity and engagement. “It’s not an exclusive club,” she says. One of the Squirrel’s more interesting challenges has been outreach to the Corn Hill neighborhood. Squirrel members and some of the groups that use the space oppose urban gentrification, but Corn Hill was one of the city’s early neighborhood gentrification successes. But the Squirrel seems to have earned the respect of its neighbors. “When certain neighborhoods become historic and trendy, whether intentional or not, it raises the value of the property and it hurts poor people, particularly people of color,” says Squirrel member Ryan Acuff. “I think you can have revitalization without gentrification.” Still, the Squirrel has gone out of its way to be part of the Clarissa Street and Corn Hill communities, he says. “Many of us are dreamers,” he says. “We’re building relationships around hope.”

PUBLIC SAFETY | BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN

Expect to hear the term “community policing” a lot this year in the runup to the September primary and the November general election. The fields for Rochester mayor and City Council are just beginning to gel, but the two challengers who have officially announced — the Green Party’s Alex White for mayor and the Rev. Marlowe Washington, a Democrat, for City Council — have put community policing at the top of their platforms. It’s not like community policing is a new idea for Rochester. For years, the deep divide between the police department and residents of the inner city, blamed for everything from the “no snitching” code on city streets to the police department’s difficulty solving homicide cases, has had elected officials, law enforcement, and others searching for ways to repair that trust. Community policing is often discussed in that context. There is no formal definition for community policing written down anywhere. The closest thing seems to be a paper by Community Oriented Policing Services, part of the US Department of Justice, which calls community policing a philosophy of using community partnerships and other proactive techniques to address conditions that give rise to public safety issues. In Rochester, however, community policing often gets tied up with the controversial reorganization of the police department several years ago; for more than a few people, community policing essentially means going back to the sevensection model. Under former Police Chief Bob Duffy, the RPD reorganized into two sections in a bid to save money, increase flexibility, and improve response times. (A third police section, to be located downtown in the Sibley building, will open this summer.) City Council member Adam McFadden, chair of Council’s Public Safety Committee, is one of the loudest and most consistent voices advocating for a return to the old seven-section model. The reorganization damaged the relationship between the community and the police, he says. “It’s made policing the responsibility of the police department and not of the community and the police department,” McFadden says. “The only time people come in contact with the police is if they’re calling them or having the police called on them.” But Mayor Tom Richards says those advocating for the old model are caught up in nostalgia. The seven-section system is cost-prohibitive, inefficient, and was created for a city that was much different geographically and demographically than it

is now, he says. And don’t forget, Richards says, that the highest crime rates in the city’s history happened when Rochester had seven police precincts. “It was not a nirvana, is my point,” he says.

John Klofas, professor of criminal justice at Rochester Institute of Technology, says
community policing is like apple pie in a no-one-can-say-it’s-a-bad-thing sort of way. It’s an easy promise for politicians to make because it sounds good, he says, and by itself, doesn’t really mean anything. “I think it’s the ‘chicken in every pot, pot in every tent,’ kind of thing,” Klofas says. “It rolls off the tongue easily, without much specificity. You can only be in favor of this sort of stuff, you know?” At the core of community policing is the idea that police cannot solve public-safety problems alone, says the COPS paper. Law enforcement must form partnerships with other government agencies, nonprofits, private businesses, media, and others. More responsibility for decision-making must be given to front-line officers, the paper says, and the entire structure of the police department must be aligned to support the community policing philosophy. Klofas and Mayor Richards say the RPD is already doing many things that can be considered community policing: more officers are walking beats instead of using their patrol cars; the number of officers stationed in the Neighborhood Service Centers has been bumped up; and Police Chief James Sheppard has engaged in numerous outreach activities, including media appearances. He’s a frequent presence at community meetings, works closely with youth groups, walks city streets in a regular “chief on the street” event, and has been holding weekly Twitter town halls, inviting the public to ask him questions over the social media forum. “Sheppard has done more than anybody in recent years to reach out [to] the community,” Klofas says. “You do have to sort of hand it to him for reaching out in new ways.” But Council member McFadden says that while Sheppard is well-known and well-liked, it doesn’t make up for the overall distrust of the police department.

“It’s not the same as when I call somebody and deal with that person,” he says. “The chief is not going to deal with disorderly conduct. The chief is not going to deal with drug dealing on the corner. Do people like the chief? Absolutely. But it has nothing to do with the relationship that we should have with our police department.” McFadden says the seven-section model should be the foundation for community policing in Rochester, not least because it represents a commitment to the public. But Richards says and Klofas agrees that a precinct system isn’t required for community policing. Rochester has more police officers — about 750 — than at any time in its history, Richards says, and the cost of policing the city works out to about $125,000 per person. “We shouldn’t have a situation where we’re already spending $133 million a year on the police department — more than we’re spending on anything else — and make it more expensive and less flexible,” Richards says. “The people proposing this stuff — more police officers, more officers on the street — they have to be specific about what they mean and how they’re going to pay for it. Two police officers equal one rec center. Two police officers equal one library. We can’t have the police department eat the city.”

Off the menu Brooks Landing Diner 904 GENESEE ST. 436-1234, BROOKSLANDINGDINER.COM MONDAY-SATURDAY 7 A.M.-4 P.M., SUNDAY 9 A.M.-2 P.M. [ REVIEW ] BY JAMES LEACH
Two eggs, home fries with green and red peppers, and pork sausage links, served with a side of kimchi and doused with Korean barbecue sauce. Something very interesting is going on at The Brooks Landing Diner on Genesee Street in the 19th Ward — and it’s been happening slowly and quietly at other diners in the area for a while now. The addition of Asian and Asian-inspired dishes to the American diner canon was in some ways inevitable, a function of the changing ownership patterns in the restaurant business. A few generations back, when immigrant and second-generation Greek families started to move into the restaurant business, Greek-ish food started to appear on diner menus. At the time, I’m sure that gyros and moussaka, Greek
salads, and spinach and feta omelets must have seemed exotic and new. Today, it’s hard to find a diner — Greek or not — that doesn’t at least have the ubiquitous Greek omelet on its menu. In recent years, enterprising Chinese, Vietnamese, and Korean restaurant owners have taken over or opened diners in challenging retail locations like the 19th Ward and started putting their version of comfort food on the menu in addition to standard diner fare. At The Brooks Landing Diner, that comfort food is Korean as interpreted by owner and cook Jung Choi, or “Sue” as she prefers to be called — a name she picked up from customers at a restaurant she owned some 20 years ago. Most recently the owner of Mitch’s on East Main Street, Sue is no stranger to a colorful and rough and tumble clientele, but this is the first time that she has put Korean food on the menu. That was done in part to attract students from the University of Rochester taking the footbridge across the river to snag a cup of joe at Boulder Coffee. While she admits she sells very little Korean during the week, when the vast majority of her clientele are interested in breakfast food
and the solid if unexciting lunch fare that Brooks Landing Diner offers, the weekends are a different story. On Saturdays and Sundays, the diner does a brisk business in bi bim bap, pork bulgogi, and sometimes dishes that don’t appear on the menu at all. In all, I visited Brooks Landing Diner three times, and I was glad that I did. The first time I visited the service was erratic, the atmosphere more than a little boisterous, and the bowl of bi bim bap ($11.99) I had tasty but not terribly exciting. All of the ingredients were fresh, the greens had a pretty emerald color, the beef was juicy and nicely seasoned, and the rice well-cooked. But I had to ask for kimchi and barbecue sauce, and my waiter — on that occasion Sue was behind the counter cooking for what quickly became a standing-room-only lunch crowd — seemed perplexed when I asked for them. On my second visit, Sue greeted me like an old friend and suggested that I try her “special” chicken bulgogi ($12.99) — she chops pungent kimchi into it to give the dish a spicy and pleasantly sour kick that nicely rounds out its intrinsic smoky goodness. She also told me
about the occasional special menus that she rolls out for the big groups of students that visit her on weekends. Apparently there’s a sort of informal and very occasional Korean brunch buffet that I long to try someday. On visit No. 3 I stopped in for some breakfast — a couple of eggs over easy, home fries, and sausage links with a cup of coffee ($4.99, plus $1.25 for coffee). I’ll admit that I was just being thorough; with Korean food on the menu a traditional diner breakfast didn’t have a huge amount of immediate appeal. But when Sue herself brought it to the table with a side of kimchi and the squeeze bottle full of barbecue sauce things started to look up. The home fries were some of the best I’ve seen in a while, the cubes of potato small enough to crisp on the outside without leaving the interior crunchy and raw, the onion and peppers sauteed just long enough to soften them rather than cooking them down into goo. The eggs were a tad overcooked, but it’s hard not to slightly overcook an over-easy egg, and there was still some runny yolk to redeem them. The sausage links were tasty but unremarkable. In short, each of the individual elements of my breakfast was a bit ho-hum. However, hack the eggs and sausage up, squirt on the barbecue sauce, mix in the kimchi, and stir, stir, stir them together with the potatoes — the way you would with the rice, veg, and meat in a bowl of bi bim bap — and a normal diner breakfast is transformed into something new and wonderful. It’s a fusion of cuisines akin to the discovery of how good peanut butter and chocolate are together. I was just tucking into my well-doctored
breakfast when Sue appeared at the table with the coffee pot — the coffee at Brooks Landing Diner is pretty good for diner coffee, but will probably still disappoint those who like their joe with a pedigree. She also brought a small plate with two pancake-shaped items on it. At first glance, they looked like some sort of hash browns or a potato pancake studded with scallions. But when I cut into them I discovered that they were actually kimchi pancakes — onion, spicy and pungent pickled cabbage, and scallion mixed with just enough flour and egg to hold them together in a creamy-textured pancake. Good by themselves, they were even better to use in place of the toast that came with my breakfast to mop stray bits of egg yolk and barbecue sauce. Sue told me that she doesn’t make kimchi pancakes all the time, and they aren’t on the menu, but that’s part of the appeal, and just one more reason why a trip into the 19th Ward is worth your while on a Saturday morning.

Mobile Deathcamp is a ferocious three-piece group out of Toledo, Ohio. This band is master of the genre and has dominated by not allowing distractions like showbiz schmaltz or crossover compromise to impede its mission. What stands out in particular with this trio is the amount of space and dynamics it exhibits within its relentless barrage. It’s one thing to make it heavy, it’s another to let it breathe.

[ REVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
Water Street Music Hall was hot and steamy for some multi-band, hard-rock hijinks on Wednesday, February 27. I rolled up as The Letter Black took the stage. The band was tight but the combo of female vocals and the band’s hard-rock struck me as a little stiff. Regardless, the audience loved ’em. Love and Death followed, and though nu-metal ain’t always my thing, these guys rocked. Front man (and former Korn guitarist) Brian “Head” Welch howled like a maniac sans the guitar for the most part, and other than the low-down rhythmic grind that chugged beneath the vocals, there wasn’t much in the way of soloing. It was compelling, riveting, and even a little fun when Welch donned a Devo flowerpot hat and tore through a rough and ragged version of “Whip It.” It had teeth. In my ongoing belief that a performer can say anything to an audience and get a positive, collective “Woooo!” Welch gave a shout out to Jesus and the crowd erupted. Thousand Foot Krutch followed with a slick, driving set for an audience that was clearly there for the band. Chants of “T-F-K, T-F-K!” preceded the band’s set.

[ INDIE ] What The Spring Standards loses in not sticking to such easy-to-pinhole things as a genre, it makes up for in pluckiness. Coming by way of Brooklyn, the band swings manically from country to folky Americana to — seriously — almost Springsteen. I would be confused if I weren’t amazed by the versatility, and how well the sounds all clearly harmonize. However, bill-mates Midnight Faces is by far my favorite of this line-up for being more 80’s easy-listening synth-pop than should be logical or necessary, especially coming from D.C. Rochester locals Cottage Jefferson and The Big will be opening.

It was loud and metal but had a lot of its own unique swirl and motion. Best show of the winter alert: The Deadstring Brothers served up an excellent set of honky-tonk barroom boogie Friday night, winding the packed house that Abilene built into a two-step frenzy. The band rocks out the country without losing sight of the actual country. It’s like a more rural, less collegiate Old 97s. The instrumentation was twangstastic and simple as it supported the tunes with their classic themes and lyrical depth. You’re not allowed to simply watch a Cowboy Mouth show. Drummer/singer Fred Leblanc simply won’t let you. The New Orleans band is an eight-armed, eight-legged party with Leblanc leading the charge from behind the kit. The fact that he has any body fat on him is amazing as he does not stop moving, pounding, howling, singing, berating, or cajoling during the band’s set Saturday night at Water Street. The audience was all arms in the air with a rabid response — and I don’t mean that in the stock music-critic parlance. I mean rabies. I saw one dude foaming at the mouth.

Music “Someone told me the other day one of the songs reminded them of an old Cars song,” Khuri says. “And I had never heard that song before. It just goes to show you everything reminds somebody of something else.” Besides the outside sources that tug at him, Khuri has an inner universe of songs waiting to be born. “I’ll come up with something, typically in the middle of the night in my bedroom,” he says. “I’ll work it and bring it to the band, and chances are it’ll take on a totally different form. Sometimes I have a vision of some parts, other times I have no vision at all, just a few basic components.” Kinsgley Flood then composes, performs, and wrenches on the music until it feels right. But sometimes “right” is hard to pinpoint. “I don’t think you ever know when it’s done,” says Khuri. “I wasn’t sure this record was done when it was. I could sit there and tweak things until kingdom come, but we’d also drive ourselves crazy doing it that way.”
The band Kingsley Flood could be classified as rock, or as Americana. But perhaps it shouldn’t be classified at all. This weekend the band will make its third stop in Rochester. PHOTO PROVIDED
Americana exile Kingsley Flood W/WHITE WOODS, MULER, AND LAST NOTE FRIDAY, MARCH 8 BUG JAR, 219 MONROE AVE. 9 P.M. | $6-$8 | BUGJAR.COM KINGSLEYFLOOD.COM [ REVIEW ] BY SUSIE HUME
Sure, it neatly sums up everything with a beard, a flannel shirt, at least one acoustic instrument, and an allegiance to Johnny Cash. But perhaps when you’re done reading this article you can join me in putting the term “Americana” to bed. Are you with me? Kingsley Flood’s Naseem Khuri is — or at least I think he is. He’s able to let go of the all-encompassing, driven-intothe-dirt tag, but won’t — like countless other contemporary musicians — let go of the all-time over-used, uber-vague “rock ’n’ roll.” Hail, hail to this Boston- and Washington-based band, which despite definitions, creates organically beautiful music that is at home under both used and abused headings. You may not be able to easily categorize its new disc “Battles” (it just dropped in February) but you’ll still enjoy the hell out of it. 16 CITY MARCH 6-12, 2013
“I don’t know if you can absolutely call it one specific genre,” Khuri says. “We’re not saying we necessarily want to make an Americana album. We just want to play songs that we like and record songs that we like and whatever they sit in, that’s fine. My favorite records are those that are hard to describe. ‘Exile On Main Street,’ ‘London Calling,’ ‘OK Computer’ — these are all the top three on my list. Granted, they’re on everybody’s list.” On the surface, the six-piece Kingsley Flood’s eclectic instrumentation may inspire premature conclusions. But if you dig past the rustic veneer, you get to the real subtlety and bristling joy of a surprisingly contemporary strain swimming in the perceived antiquity. “Yeah, we have a violin and a trumpet, and people look at that and say, ‘That’s Americana,’” says Khuri. “And I think that’s great. What the difference is, is we don’t think Americana means one specific thing; it’s an umbrella. Look at old blues records: that’s Americana. You can look at anything that Stax Records put out — soul and r&b — that’s Americana. We draw from all of those influences. The Kinks were a big influence on this album, The Clash was a big influence on this album. I’m a huge fan of r&b.”
If Americana is an umbrella, then it’s raining a lot around the band. Raining enough to cause, you might say, a Kingsley Flood. With the bombardment of influences all around it, the band maintains its nuanced identity without effort or compromise. Even in a world where, according to Khuri, there’s essentially nothing new. “I don’t know,” he says. “I think there’s very little original anything out there. And what is out there is derivative of something else. But the fact that someone else is doing it, is going to make it original. The fact that we have this kind of instrumentation. I have a specific kind of voice. George Hall plays a specific type of guitar. Jenee Morgan sounds a certain way on her violin… If we tried to duplicate The Clash, we wouldn’t sound like them, we would sound like ourselves. Do I like to think our songs are original sounding? Absolutely. Do I try and make an effort to make them original? Yeah. But I bet if someone sat there and picked them apart they could hear a million different influences.” And of those million points of inspirational light, some seem completely out of left field.
By the time “Battles” dropped, Kingsley Flood had itself, what with two prior releases to its credit (“Dust Windows” in 2010 and “Colder Still” from 2012) to be compared to, as well as others around them. Yet according to Khuri, there were expectations to live up to with the fans the band had already made. New fans were simply fresh ears, a clean slate. “We’ve been plugging away for the last three or four years just trying to build up fan bases in cities like Rochester, Boston, New York, Washington, DC,” he says. “So we definitely wanted to make it for fans that way. We do feel like this is the one time where all of the factors sort of came together well.” As the band forges ahead and adds new cities as home to its fans (including a stop at the prestigious Newport Folk Festival), the band is already in love with Rochester. This will be its third stop here. “Rochester,” Khuri says. “The people there are fantastic, they go nuts. We just love the Rochester crowd.”

CELTIC | THE TOSSERS
Just in time for the most sacred of Irish holidays, take a little trip to the Emerald Isle via a stopover in Chicago with The Tossers, returning to Rochester for the first time in more than five years. More traditional-sounding than its Celtic-rock contemporaries Flogging Molly and the Dropkick Murphys, The Tossers have more in common with The Pogues. The group plays drunken Irish music with the flair, flame, and fury of modern rock and roll, but with all the fiddle, mandolin, and tin whistle you could want. Continental and local Irish rockers 1916 help to start off your St. Patrick’s Day week festivities. The Tossers play Wednesday, March 13, 8 p.m. at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N.

JAMBAND | BIG LEG EMMA
HIP HOP | SEAN FORBES
Jamestown jammers Big Leg Emma are the rock ’n’ roll equivalent to a Swiss Army knife. This Western New York band expertly blends elements of country, bluegrass, folk, and straight-ahead rock, along with psychedelic sojourns and salvos. The band’s latest album, “Revival,” was awarded “Best Upstate Album of 2012” by Upstate Live Magazine.
Seeing as how I’ve walked out of more than a couple of shows at the Armory with my hearing temporarily impaired from the volume, it kind of makes sense that the venue has booked deaf hip-hopper Sean Forbes. This 30-year-old artist from Detroit plays quirky upbeat hiphop despite being deaf since birth. Forbes was signed by the Bass Brothers, who also discovered Eminem. In 2006 Forbes co-founded D-PAN —Deaf Professional Arts Network — a nonprofit organization seeking to make music and music culture accessible to the deaf and hard-of-hearing communities.

You’ve heard the faux Egyptian melody — the one that starts with “da na na na na” — but are you aware of Egyptian-themed death-metal band Nile? This American group is led by singer-guitarist Karl Sanders (ranked by Decibel magazine as one of the best death-metal guitarists of all time) and it is bringing its 20th anniversary show on the road. A Nile concert sounds like a perfect nightcap after a long hard day of rendering unto pharaoh. The quartet is prolific with albums including “Those Whom the Gods Detest,” which earned critical kudos en masse, although I’m of an “Annihilation of the Wicked” sort of guy myself. Nile is touring in support of its latest, “At the Gate of Sethu,” out on Nuclear Blast. With Order Of The Dead, Sleep Circadia, Within Creation, and Cthuhlu.

Art The persistence of “Comedy” “Salvador Dalí: Dante’s ‘Divine Comedy’”
on display at Brockport were prints at all and not, in fact, the original watercolors.
THROUGH MARCH 29 TOWER FINE ARTS GALLERY @ SUNY BROCKPORT, 180 HOLLEY ST., BROCKPORT 395-2805, BROCKPORT.EDU/FINEARTS MONDAY-FRIDAY 10 A.M.-5 P.M., SUNDAY 1-4 P.M. (CLOSED FOR ACADEMIC BREAK MARCH 16-24)
Very few of complete sets of Dalí’s “Divine Comedy” prints remain together today, as images were sold individually throughout the decades. The set shown at Brockport is on loan from the Ewing Gallery at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, and was donated by UT alumnus and businessman Gary Johnson, who wanted the suite to remain together in a university setting, according to provided information. The exhibit is straightforward, with the prints ringing the gallery in perfect order and grouped under titles reflecting the three “books” of the poem: Purgatory, Inferno, and Paradise. There is no interference to the flow of the images other than an introductory essay that provides some background information on Dalí and how the suite of prints came to be. I enjoyed the uninterrupted imagery, but more than once overheard another viewer say that the experience would be enhanced if each image was paired up with its corresponding verses, and I couldn’t help but agree. The unbridled imagination and vision of the Spanish surrealist is well suited to Dante’s beloved, bizarre trip through the allegorical mindscapes of Purgatory, the crucible circles of Hell, and the several spheres of Heaven. Dalí began his tribute to “Divine Comedy” with “Purgatory 1, The Reign of the Penitents,” which has a winged, broken creature absorbed in intense self-examination, expressed here through its peering into drawers that have slid out from folds of flesh. This motif of the living chest of drawers is just one part of the symbolic language found here that is echoed in other works by Dalí. Through his characteristic toying with spatial relationships, grotesque distortion of the body, and incredible imagery, Dalí perfectly conveys the depth of emotional experience as he guides us through Dante’s many encounters and revelations. In pieces such as “Purgatory 20, The Avaricious,” Dalí makes use of the surrealist style he called “paranoiac vision,” in which human features emerge from components of the landscape to leer at the traveling poet and the uneasy audience alike.
[ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY
Some stories seduce artists throughout the ages. There is a robust tradition of artistic interpretation of Italian writer Dante Alighieri’s epic poem, “Commedia,” known these days as “The Divine Comedy.” The work has been an irresistible subject for such visionaries as Sandro Botticelli, Gustave Doré, William Blake, Franz von Bayros, Tom Phillips, and Robert Rauschenberg. Even Disney and the cartoon “Futurama” have referenced the work, providing testaments to its lasting relevancy as a cross-cultural treasure. Through March 29, you can see a complete set of “Divine Comedy” illustrations created by the iconic surrealist artist, Salvador Dalí, at the Tower Fine Arts Center at SUNY Brockport. In anticipation of the 700th anniversary of Alighieri’s birth, in 1957 the Italian government commissioned Dalí to create a complete set of illustrations, one for each canto of the “Divine Comedy.” But soon after the artist began planning imagery for each of the 100 watercolor paintings, the government withdrew the commission under pressure from Italian citizens who were peeved that the job went to a Spanish artist rather than one of their own. Undeterred, Dalí continued the work, finishing the hundred works in nine years without funding or even a guaranteed publisher, trusting that support would come. Soon after, the images were painstakingly translated into a set of wood engravings by expert engravers overseen by Dalí and Jean Estrade, artistic director of Parisian publisher Les Heures Claires. This task required about 3,500 separate plates to be etched for the 100 prints, with 40 or 50 blocks for some of the more complex and colorful images, according to provided information. The skillful translation was so complete, capturing every brushy stroke and watery wash, that I marveled that the prints 20 CITY MARCH 6-12, 2013
As with much of the artist’s work,
Dalí offers up surprises in his many interpretations of the tale. His version of the intimidating ferryman seen in “Inferno 3, Charon” is not the mysteriously cloaked

wraith we have come to expect, but instead a robust, nude man who bears the souls across the Styx. In “Inferno 6, Cerberus,” the traditionally three-headed, beastly hound that guards the gates of Hell is a rearing, kinetic mass of inky circles that dwarf the poet. Under Dalí’s hand, The Furies are a mere suggestion of electrified streams of light attacking a body, evoking a strangely potent horror nonetheless. The scenes of Paradise are equally bewildering, and showcase Dalí’s skills in storytelling through what is fully formed and in focus, and what is left pointedly vague and thus subtly nagging, difficult to dismiss. No work of art is created in a cultural vacuum, and though these prints were
inspired by the poem that reflects Dante’s time and personal trials, Dalí’s own experiences are symbolically evident as well. The Spanish artist successfully tempted his wife and muse, “Gala” (Elena Ivanovna Diakonova) away from her previous husband and child, so I viewed the particularly graphic nature of the punishment of the subjects in “Inferno 15, The Seducers” with a keen eye. And I was intrigued to notice that elements of Dalí’s “Inferno 27, Lucifer,” bear a startling resemblance to “Saturn Devouring His Son,” a wrenching work by Dalí’s nearcontemporary and fellow Spanish painter, Francisco Goya.

KIDS EVENT | MERMAID THEATRE OF NOVA SCOTIA
The Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia, unfortunately, does not employ any mermaids. But it does have plenty of puppets, and that’s good enough, right? After swimming around the world with award-winning performances in more than a dozen countries, this traveling children’s theater company will drop anchor in the Callahan Theater of the Nazareth College Arts Center (4245 East Ave.) for two matinee shows on Saturday, March 9. The Mermaid Theatre will present an hour-long show with adaptations of two classic, bunny-themed children’s books: Sam McBratney and Anita Jeram’s “Guess How Much I Love You” and Jeram’s “I Love My Little Storybook.” The performances will feature original music as well as lots of bunny puppets, so prepare in advance for a cuteness overload. The Mermaid Theatre’s shows are at 2 and 4 p.m. Tickets are $15-$18, and can be purchased by calling 389-2170 or through artscenter.naz.edu, which also has a full list of upcoming events and shows at Nazareth College. — BY JASON SILVERSTEIN 1865-2012.

LECTURE | ROCHESTER CIVIC GARDEN CENTER SYMPOSIUM
We all know a beautiful garden when we see one. But there’s more to those gardens than meets the eye. They can represent artistic expression, provocative personal statements, and profound connections between the human arts and the natural sciences. Three guest speakers will open your eyes to what you’ve been missing in nature at the Rochester Civic Garden Center Symposium on Saturday, March 9, at the Memorial Art Gallery (500 University Ave.). Nationally renowned garden designer W. Gary Smith will give two lectures based on his newest book, “From Art to Landscape: Unleashing Creativity in Garden Design.” He will discuss the shared patterns in the arts and sciences and how to design elaborate gardens while remaining environmentally conscious. Pietro Furgiuele (pictured) will offer a lecture on unusual and provocative garden designs, titled “The CONCEPT Garden — Where Amazing Garden Concepts Sprout.” Finally, Mark Bayer of Bayer Landscape Architecture in Honeoye Falls will present a slideshow of the MAG’s new 2013 Centennial Sculpture Park. The symposium runs from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tickets are $58 for the public and $48 for MAG members, and allow all-day access to the gallery.

Arts Apply yourself for Fringe 2013 [ FEATURE ] BY ERIC REZSNYAK
It’s fair to say that nobody knew what to expect from the First Niagara Rochester Fringe Festival before it premiered in September 2012. But when more than 6000 people showed up at Manhattan Square Park on a Thursday evening to watch inaugural headliner Bandaloop dance on the side of One HSBC Plaza, “the penny dropped,” as Festival Producer Erica Fee put it. After that, thousands of people took in at least one of the 100-plus performances that went on over five days at the nearly two-dozen local venues, and more than a few local artists and performers likely found themselves wondering, “Why am I not a part of this?” For anyone who wanted to get involved in the Fringe Festival, now is the chance. The festival will return this fall, now expanded to 10 days — September 19-28 — and it is accepting show applications now through April 12 at its website, rochesterfringe.com. What separates Fringe festivals from other events is that they are open to all manner of performing arts, and more important, there is no centralized group determining the programming. Instead, acts apply online, and the venues decide what they want to host. Applications for 2013 opened on February 11, and according to Fee, within days festival organizers had received dozens of submissions, some from as far away as the Czech Republic. If the pace keeps up this year, Fee says she wouldn’t be surprised to receive 400 to 500 submissions. Because of that, Fee encourages would-be applicants not to wait. “Sooner is better,” she says. “It’s a rolling admissions process. It’s like applying to college: if you wait until the last minute to apply, and there are two spots left and 10 applicants — guess what?” A successful Fringe Festival application will
have a “clear vision of what the show is,” Fee says. That may start as something as brief as a synopsis, but should demonstrate a level of show-biz savvy. “How will you sell your show in the guide? Put it in brief, exciting terms that the venue can understand and grasp quickly,” Fee says. Last year, acts that stood out to venues included interdisciplinary collaborations, the mashing together of groups, and new works, Fee says. But each venue had its own preferences and processes. Mark Cuddy, artistic director of Geva Theatre Center, says that last year Geva 24 CITY MARCH 6-12, 2013
received about 80 Fringe applications for its Nextstage. A five-person committee went through them, trying to find what would work best for the venue; the focus ended up being on theatrical companies, both local and traveling. Although Cuddy says he is open to some dance or music performances this year, Geva’s 2013 Fringe schedule will still primarily favor theater. Cuddy gives the following advice to Fringe applicants: “It needs a hook — it has to stand out in originality. Two, you’ve got to be able to pull it off. We looked at some of the proposals and thought it was a great idea, but we weren’t sure of what the product was going to be. Videos are great; YouTube is really helpful.” He also suggests that performers consider applying to multiple venues. “Don’t put all your eggs in our basket,” Cuddy says. “Some applications said only Nextstage, only Geva. We had a bunch of ‘maybes,’ but if we said that this is not going to fit into our repertoire here, we let people know right away so that they could find another venue.” Writers & Books was another successful venue during the inaugural Fringe Fest. Director of Development Alexa Scott Flaherty had experience with the New York and Edinburgh Fringe festivals and, along with a committee, “We were looking for pieces that had some sort of tie-in to the literary arts, but that could be in a loose and flexible way.” Flaherty’s advice for new Fringe applicants is to “play; experiment,” she says. “This is the chance to make the project that only you can make. You don’t have to follow the rules. Pitch it from your heart and let us see what you want to create and how you plan on getting there. Remember, the original Edinburgh Fringe artists were renegades and self-enterprising. They moved away from the mainstream and did it themselves. That’s the spirit of Fringe.” That spirit is what appealed to Andrew
Pramuk and Alison Moritz, who with their partners presented “Hide the Moon: Based on Salome” at RAPA’s East End Theatre for the inaugural Rochester Fringe Festival. At the time, both were students at the Eastman School of Music and were intrigued by the collaborative, creative opportunities provided by the festival. “Andrew and I had worked together within the opera department, but wanted to do something less hierarchical,” Mortiz says. They went to one of the “Fringe 101” information sessions to learn more, knew they wanted to do a project, but weren’t sure how to proceed.
Erica Fee, festival producer for the First Niagara Rochester Fringe Festival (left), and Mark Cuddy, artistic director at Geva Theatre Center (right), both encourage interested local artists not to wait until the April deadline to apply for performance slots for the 2013 edition of the arts festival. PROVIDED PHOTOS
After working on all of the elements for months, both Pramuk and Moritz say the Fringe experience fulfilled their experimental goals. Pramuk says, “The play was 100 years old, originally in French. We did the English version, cut it to 20 minutes, filled it with music, had instrumentalists acting and actors singing. It was cross-disciplinary, with students fulfilling roles that weren’t usual to them in their student lives. It all developed organically. It was a rewarding experience.” “Hide the Moon” was a free performance, and the group putting it on generated funds to support the project through the crowdsourcing fundraising website Kickstarter. com. Figuring out the financial aspect of a Fringe performance is important. Applying to Fringe is not free. The festival — a nonprofit corporation — charges a registration fee of $100 to $150, and also takes 10 percent of box-office receipts to cover operation costs. The rest of the ticket price is split between venue and performer via differing costsharing agreements. Linda Starkweather was another performer at the inaugural Rochester Fringe. Her “Traveling With a Broken Compass” played at the Geva Nextstage to two mostly full houses, with tickets costing $15. And yet Starkweather says she concluded her first Fringe experience losing money after paying for application fees, rehearsal fees, insurance costs, promotional materials, and a lighting professional. However, she still sees it as a positive experience overall, because it gave her a “kick in the pants” — she created the show expressly to participate in Fringe.
“I now have a show,” she says. “The weekend after Fringe I performed at Cobblestone in Farmington, and the proceeds from that got me above water. The motivation from that got me on my feet, and it was a great launching pad.” Her advice to prospective Fringe performers is to “keep it simple. Make it about your performance,” she says, and keep your costs low. Festival Producer Fee agrees with that advice, and says that, “No one’s performing at Fringe to come home with bags of cash. You might. What many people are doing is putting new work in front of the public, to help develop it.” Fee encourages performers to “put your independent producer hats on when negotiating contracts with venues,” she says. Just because a venue offers a primetime slot, that might not be the right space for you. Perhaps it’s too large, or not as keen on your act as another venue. And make sure that when the time comes, you’re getting the word out. “PUSH Physical Theatre and ‘The Bicycle Men’ were out marketing their shows during the festival with pop-up street performances. That can affect the bottom line,” Fee says. Fee says the festival will again bring in big headlining acts, and those should be announced in May, with the entire festival schedule revealed in mid-July.

THEATER | “LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS”/“RE-INVENTED: A DRACULA-INSPIRED GOTH ROCK MUSICAL”
The theater has the power to lift our spirits, to carry us away with its magic, to enchant us with gorgeous sets and wonderful songs. It also has the power to gross us out and scare the crap out of us. If you prefer fake blood to fables and fairy tales, you’re in luck: There are two shows this weekend that will fill the stage with guts and gore, and perhaps a bit of humor on the side. The Rochester Association of Performing Arts presents its production of “Little Shop of Horrors” (pictured) at the East End Theatre (727 E. Main St.) starting on Friday, March 8. This adaptation of Alan Menken and Howard Ashman’s classic rock musical, about a florist who raises an evil plant that needs blood and flesh to survive, is directed by Judith Ranaletta and features choreography by Kris Ashley. “Little Shop of Horrors” runs at 7:30 p.m. on March 8, March 9, March 15, and March 16, and at 2 p.m. on March 10 and 16. Tickets are $20 for general admission and $15 for students, seniors, and groups of eight or more. Visit rapatheatre.org for tickets and more information on RAPA shows. In its transition from high-school productions to community theater, Wilson Magnet High School’s Drama/Video Club presents “Re-Invented: A Dracula-Inspired Goth Rock Musical” at the MuCCC (142 Atlantic Ave.) this weekend. For those who thought that the classic Dracula stories weren’t ghoulish enough already, this original musical remixes the old-fashioned scares for the 21st century, with love-struck teenaged characters and a soundtrack featuring music by the Cure, My Chemical Romance, and AFI. “ReInvented” runs on Thursday, March 7, Friday, March 8, and Saturday, March 9, with all performances at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $3 in advance, $5 at the door, and free to DVC donors and Wilson students.

Under the sea on a Russian sub [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA
— open at your local multiplex. Sometimes those flicks actually prove more satisfying than the heavily publicized biggies. “Phantom” “Phantom” seems an odd throwback of a (R), WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY movie, linked with some moments and some TODD ROBINSON pictures from the past. To begin with it’s a NOW PLAYING submarine movie, a minor genre that never quite disappears, and that includes such memorable This time of year, the odd hiatus that occurs films as “Silent Running,” “The Hunt for Red somewhere in between the competing distractions of the holidays, the Oscars, and the anticipation of October,” and “Das Boot.” The form provides a most propitious setting for Hollywood the new spring crop, often serves as Hollywood’s filmmakers. The limited space crammed with dumping ground. It’s the place on the calendar fascinating machinery creates some compelling where films that have languished on the shelf visual possibilities; the simple fact of submersion for one reason or another, films without studio in hundreds of feet of ocean makes for a constant support — or in the case of “Phantom,” films tension; the sheer claustrophobia intensifies all without an inch of advertising or a note of hype other emotions; the reminders of danger in the sweating crew and the pinging of the sonar, and the dialectic of both hunting and eluding enemy vessels convince even the most skeptical audiences of the inherent, unending terror of undersea warfare. Johnathan Schaech and David Duchovny in “Phantom.” PHOTO COURTESY RCR
The movie also looks back to a different time, 1968, the Cold War, when Soviet and American submarines, armed with nuclear devices, patrolled the oceans, stalking each other and threatening global destruction. Inspired, as the credits state, by a true story, “Phantom” shows the last cruise of an obsolete, diesel-powered Russian submarine, about to be retired, under a captain (Ed Harris) also about to be retired, sent on a secret mission to the South Pacific. Puzzled by his orders, Harris learns that most of his crew of replacements consists of sailors with no records, and that he must work under the supervision of an arrogant KGB agent (David Duchovny), who issues orders that imperil the ship and the crew. They sail too close beneath a tanker, stalk another Russian submarine, and head toward the American fleet. The phantom of the title is a device that masks the profile of the sub for detection, sending out the sonar signal of another ship. When Duchovny reveals the goal of the secret mission, the captain reacts in shock — the KGB plans for the sub to fire a nuclear missile under the guise of a Chinese launch, so that the Americans will retaliate and the two nations will engage in total war. The Soviet Union, he believes, will sit contentedly on the sidelines while their enemies destroy each other, emerging to rule the world. Assisted by the replacement crew and the political officer — always the most powerful member of any

Another look West [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
“West of Memphis” (R), DIRECTED BY AMY BERG OPENS FRIDAY
Soviet military unit — he takes over the sub and prepares to create World War III. Along with the multiple sources of tension, the movie exploits the captain’s emotional condition, a complicated mixture of sorrow, regret, and mental and physical exhaustion. He keeps remembering, through flashbacks and even hallucinations, a tragic accident from the past, a collision with another ship that killed a number of his crew and in effect doomed his career. The combination of his sense of duty, his guilt, and his horror at Duchovny’s plan, written on Ed Harris’s weary, lined, expressive face, epitomizes the movie’s central dilemma. While Harris and William Fichtner, who plays his executive officer, perform competently, David Duchovny as the brutal KGB agent turns in a most disappointing job. His offhand delivery and constant deadpan hardly suit the person he plays and the actions he takes; he works best in lighter roles and actually lacks the presence needed for the big screen. The movie never lets up its pacing, using the mission’s mystery as only one of the sources of suspense. Its shots of the several obvious, even necessary moments — the Russian submarine base, the visuals outside the submerged vessel, and of course, the crowded, claustrophobic interior — all look entirely authentic. Whether true or not, it also suggests that Soviet subs stocked a great many small arms and, surprisingly, a lot of liquor.
In May of 1993, the bodies of three 8-year-old boys were found naked, bound, and mutilated in a creek in a wooded area of West Memphis, Arkansas, known as Robin Hood Hills. The lurid nature of the crime led to rumors that the murders were part of a satanic ritual, incensing the local population to near hysteria, as they demanded for an arrest to be made. To say that the investigation conducted by the West Memphis police was poorly handled is an understatement. But nevertheless, three teenaged suspects were produced: black-clothes-wearing, heavy-metal-listening loners Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin, and Jessie Misskelley. In the heavily publicized trials that followed, the three boys were tried and convicted. Baldwin and Misskelley received life sentences, while Echols was sentenced to death. Filmmakers Bruce Sinofsky and Joe Berlinger documented the trial and investigation and made a case for the three boys’ innocence in their landmark HBO documentary, “Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills.” That film debuted in 1996, bringing national

attention to the case and inspiring a movement advocating for the release of the boys, now known as “the West Memphis Three.” Since then, Sinofsky and Berlinger have twice returned to the case, filming two sequels (the last installment, “Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory,” was released in January 2012) that documented the case all the way up through the boys’ ultimate release from prison at the end of 2011. That conclusion was the result of an unusual deal with Arkansas state prosecutors that allowed the three men to trade a guilty plea in exchange for their freedom. Now a new film produced by longtime West Memphis Three supporters Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh, and directed by Amy J. Berg (“Deliver us From Evil”), chronicles the entire ordeal all over again. The story of the original murders and the railroading of three likely innocent boys is fascinating, utterly compelling, and completely horrifying. But is there really enough reason to justify another movie when the case has already been so expertly documented? Somewhat surprisingly, the answer turns out to be “yes”. A main strength of the new film is hindsight, which allows Berg the opportunity to step back and view nearly the entire breadth of the case. The first two of the “Paradise Lost” films were made in the midst of the action, and the filmmakers had to do all their own investigating into the evidence as events developed. Berg had access to all that information right from the beginning. The investigation that “West of Memphis” wages also reaps the rewards of the significant financial backing of Peter Jackson. In addition to acting as producer, Jackson also appears on camera, detailing his interest in the case and exactly how he came to be involved. His funding allows this film to hire some of the country’s leading experts, as well track down and interview several people that those earlier films were never able to convince to appear on camera.
The “Paradise Lost” films focused a great deal on the boys themselves, but “West of Memphis” takes a different approach. Berg’s film is more clinical, digging deeper into exacting detail about the specifics of the case itself, sticking to the facts and delving less into character. While Damien Echols (who’s also listed as a producer on the film) gets significant screen time, the other two members of the West Memphis Three, Josh Misskelley and Jason Baldwin, are allowed to fade somewhat into the background. This film is lightly critical of “Paradise Lost 2,” specifically the way the filmmakers’ focused on John Byers, the step-father of another of the young victims, as a possible perpetrator. The “Paradise” filmmakers demonized the man, making a convincing case against him — though he was ultimately proven to be innocent. It’s hard not to see those criticisms as somewhat hypocritical: that film was working off the fairly solid evidence that was available at the time, and Byers, who was clearly fond of being in front of the camera, sure as hell acted guilty. Berg has access to new DNA evidence that didn’t exist years earlier, making her case much stronger. But she can’t resist utilizing some of the same questionable theatrics while making her case against her suspect, using menacing-looking footage of the stepfather of one of the other victims. “West of Memphis” provides a thorough overview of the case for those coming in cold, and manages to build an even stronger case for the innocence of The West Memphis Three while providing greater evidence against another suspect. In this way, the film works as a nice addendum to the “Paradise Lost” trilogy. If nothing else, the film is worthwhile for the emotional epilogue that concludes the film, as the three men journey into the outside world for the first time in nearly 20 years, enjoying their newfound freedom.

Ready for Revival
124 Macbeth Street The true character of a city home can be seen in what remains. As it passes from owner to owner, so much can change, but the hope is that some things never do. It’s the details around the edges--what you see when you look up and down--that reflect the true craftsmanship of a home’s original construction. And so it is for the hardy American Foursquare at 124 Macbeth Street in the Culver-Winton-Main neighborhood. Built in 1922, this house stands tall because its previous owners took care to preserve what really matters: the unique and delightful original features that give it personality. A spacious front porch, framed by terraced gardens, provides an excellent view. Once through the front door, the house’s carefully preserved original features immediately become apparent. The entrance vestibule retains its original tile and a well-crafted French door. It’s an inviting space that sets the tone for the rest of the home. Through the entryway, the brightly painted living room boasts a cozy brick gas fireplace, mounted with a thick wood mantle and flanked by an immaculate built-in bookshelf with glass doors. Combined with the hardwood floors and well-preserved woodwork, this room has all the character to make it a comforting space to relax each night. The ceiling beams in the dining room add charm, giving off a mellow glow from the ample sunlight that floods the room through the large picture window. A butler’s pantry connects the dining room and kitchen at
the back of the house. It also retains wellpreserved original features, including the original swinging wood door. The open kitchen is well-lit, with several windows, and is large enough to host a cozy breakfast table. The upstairs features a full bath and four equalsized bedrooms that offer plenty of space and even more original features. All the rooms retain their classic woodwork and have well-kept hardwood floors. Each has a nice-sized closet. A bonus feature in this home is a partially finished attic. It’s a bright, comfortable space that is ready to fulfill your personal needs, whether it be a play room, art studio, office, or extra storage. Outside, the backyard has plenty of space for landscaping, gardening, and a potential deck or patio area. All the key features of a classic city house are available in this home, lovingly preserved by previous owners and ready for its next renewal. 124 Macbeth Street sits in a central location near the bustling commercial areas of Main St., Culver Rd. and Winton Ave. It offers approximately 1,424 square feet of living space and is listed at $67,900. This is a short sale and is being sold in “as-is” condition.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD An Arizona appeals court ruled in February that someone can be guilty of driving under the influence of marijuana even though its psychoactive ingredient has long left his system. Since tests of marijuana measure both active and inactive ingredients, and since the active substance vanishes quickly but the inactive one remains in the body for weeks, a marijuana consumer may test “positive” even though not the least bit impaired. (In fact, since neighboring Colorado recently legalized some marijuana possession, a Colorado driver motoring through Arizona weeks later could be guilty of DUI for a completely legal, harmless act, as could the 35,000 Arizona medical-marijuana users.) The appeals court majority reasoned that since the legislature did not distinguish the inactive ingredient from the active, neither would the court.
— Richard Blake took the witness stand in Ottawa, Ontario, in January to deny that it was he who had invaded a home and stabbed two people numerous times. With a straight face, he had an answer for all of the incriminating evidence. He had the perp’s car because “a stranger” had just handed him the keys; he didn’t recall what the stranger looked like (but guessed that he probably resembled Blake, because for some reason Blake got picked out of the lineup); he donned the stranger’s bloody knit cap (abandoning his own cap); he handled the stranger’s knife and bloody glove, and that’s why his DNA was on them; he fled at the first sight of police, ramming a cruiser to escape (even though he had “done nothing wrong”); he fled on foot after the collision and hid in a tree (but
only to get away from a swarm of black flies). After deliberating politely for a day, the jury found him guilty. — A 61-year-old man in southern Sweden beat a DUI charge in February even though his blood-alcohol was five times over the legal limit. The man told the judge he is a hearty drinker and normally starts in even before work every day, with “no effect” on his performance. According to the Skanskan newspaper, that must have impressed the judge, who was so awed that he tossed out the charge.
— A longtime high school teacher of French and Spanish is suing the Mariemont, Ohio, school district for having pressured her to resign in the face of what she calls her phobia, a “fear of kids” disorder, which she says should be protected by disability-discrimination law. Maria Waltherr-Willard, 61, had been reassigned to teach some junior high students, but doctors said she suffered hypertension, nightmares, chest pains and vomiting when around the younger-age children. — Lisa Biron’s recent biography shows her to be a licensed lawyer in two states, practicing in Manchester, N.H., and also affiliated with a group of volunteer lawyers that advocates “religious liberty, the sanctity of life, and marriage and family,” and issues warnings about the “homosexual agenda.” (She recently represented a church in Concord, N.H., and served on the board of directors of a Christian school in Manchester.) In January, Biron was convicted in federal court in Concord on nine counts involving taking her teenage daughter to Canada and creating child pornography.
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 32 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t feel pressured by someone giving you an ultimatum or suggesting you move too fast when you aren’t ready. Love must be savored, and a relationship must be built on solid ground. Find out how much you have in common before jumping into intimacy. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll attract the coolest partners if you travel or get involved in an unusual event or activity. Someone from a different background will catch your eye and entice you into an interesting, exciting and adventuresome experience. Love
at first sight can happen. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Fickleness will stand in the way of true love. Whether it’s you or the person you choose, someone will not be able to make a decision when it comes to love. Don’t overreact or stretch the truth if you sincerely want to give this connection a fair chance. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Love, romance, intrigue, adventure and excitement highlight your week. Someone unusual will catch your eye and win your heart. Don’t be surprised if things move along quickly and a change of plans leads to a long-term commitment. Security,
stability and a passionate promise can be expected. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Be wary of anyone making demands or acting too possessive. Pushiness to move into a close, personal relationship must not be mistaken for unadulterated love. Control issues are present, and the chance of attracting someone who wants to own you is likely. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Put a little thought into the type of activities and events you attend. Your choice will make all the difference between finding that special someone or not. Love is on the rise, and with the right choice of entertainment, you will
discover someone who shares your interests. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your emotions will surface, leading to romantic confusion. Too much choice and not being given a true assessment of what someone you meet actually has to offer will throw you off guard and into a relationship that is likely to fizzle and fade away. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’ll be drawn to someone different from your usual choice of partner. Explore the possibilities that this union has to offer, and you will find common ground. A unique lifestyle will suit your needs and add to your creativity.
Embrace a new direction. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll be pushed to become involved with someone you are not quite sure you want to pursue. Being nice or not wanting to hurt someone’s feelings will lead to a bad emotional situation that can end only in disaster. It’s not cruel to be honest about the way you feel. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Revisit past relationships and consider whether you actually suited each other or if the timing was just not right at the time. Reconnecting with someone you have history with will revitalize you and put you at
ease. Make the first move. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Circumstances are likely to dictate who you are with. A practical outlook and a discussion mapping out the best way to proceed will help you realize what you must do. Don’t fold under pressure or the demands being made. Do what’s best for you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You are heading in the right direction when it comes to love. All arrows point to a solid and committed relationship with someone able to supply you with everything you need and want from a partner. Don’t waste time; seal the deal and get on with your life.
