Park bridges must be saved
I can see from the article on the possible destruction of the historic Olmstead bridges in Genesee Valley Park that officials at the Department of Transportation are singing their old song again (“Bridges Make Save List,” News). They first started singing about destroying these Olmstead bridges in 1970 as an “economic necessity” to accommodate what was called the Outer Loop (now called Route 390), which crushed the heart of the park. The only reason these graceful additions to the old park still exist is because a little-remembered grassroots environmental group called ACTFORE – Action for the Environment – sprang up to save part of Genesee Valley Park from destruction by the combined forces of the DOT and the University of Rochester, which wanted to build a law school on 38 acres of the most historic, memorialized section of the park. That privatization plan was to be accompanied by the US Army Engineers, who proposed to wreck the meandering beauty of Red Creek through the park by confining it to a concrete ditch. The basic story back in the 70’s was about powerful public and private institutions running roughshod over users of a popular, inner-city people’s park. The preservation answer back then is the same as the answer now. People 2 CITY

should fight to preserve our historic park by leaning on the responsible agencies to make preservation of these beautiful bridges a higher priority than tearing them down using the excuse of public safety or insufficient money for repairs. HUGH MITCHELL, ROCHESTER
Whose rights are violated?
Mary Anna Towler claims that an Arizona bill would’ve discriminated against LGBTQ folks (“Religious Freedom and Our Other Rights,” Urban Journal). Actually, it discriminates against those who believe marriage is between one man and one woman, as the Bible states. Towler worries that the Arizona bill – which was not signed by Governor Brewer – would “impose religious beliefs on other people.” But it’s those who believe in traditional marriage who would’ve been forced to service gays/gay marriages who would’ve been discriminated against and would’ve had beliefs imposed on them. Towler writes about the protection of the Constitution. I wonder if this is the same Constitution that Obama has violated repeatedly. SAM PALERMO, ROCHESTER
Spend on repairs, not bus terminal
City and RGRTA officials are applauding the potential early completion of the downtown transit center. I, for one, cannot join in that acclaim. While officials praise the enclosure as a benefit to bus riders, they ignore the fact that routing buses in this structure will lengthen commute tine. It will also increase the walking distance of riders to their respective designations unless they are traveling to locations north of Main Street between Clinton Avenue and St. Paul Street. Riders were not happy last May when they had to walk
up to Broad Street to board the buses, which normally stopped on Main Street. Instead of millions of dollars for this structure, the best interests of bus riders would have been to enlarge and improve some of the current bus shelters and create additional ones where needed. I can cite at least a couple of locations on the Lake Avenue line where several riders wait without a shelter in adverse weather conditions. The price of these improvements would have been tens of millions less than this edifice. No study has cited the effect on Pleasant Street, the small side street just north of this structure. Further, there are plans to make Clinton Avenue and St. Paul Street two-way streets. Those streets are already congested and bottlenecked during rush hour. There is no space on either one for widening them. A recent television news report cited specifics wherein money collected through gasoline and other taxes was diverted and used for funds other than highway and structural maintenance. This report cited the woeful conditions of several bridges and roads in the Greater Rochester area. A newspaper report further cited the costs to motorists and taxpayers of the deteriorated infrastructure in this community. How much better if those funds had been spent repairing the deplorable bridges and roads in this county. If one of the purposes of building the bus terminal was to provide construction jobs, those jobs would have better served the community had they been focused on road and bridge maintenance. JAMES R. BOEHLER, ROCHESTER
Warren and the race issue
Mayor Lovely Warren’s missteps in her first few
weeks in office could simply be getting “off track,” as she said in her apology to city residents. Things seem to have settled down since then. Good luck to her as she tries to get back on track. What I find more troubling – as someone who covered the news in this town for 40 years – is her apparent view of the city as black versus white. Her campaign brought up race by suggesting that a white mayor like Tom Richards could not fully understand the needs of poor black folks. Then she said in an internet interview broadcast on radio that a black police officer is better at defusing tense situations involving African Americans. When you need a cop, does race really matter? Warren then waged class warfare by criticizing Richards for living in the Browncroft area – never mind that as former chairman of RG&E, he could afford to live in the fanciest house in the fanciest suburb, but chose instead to raise his kids in the city, where his father served as a minister to the poor. And this belowthe-belt attack was when Richards’ son was gravely ill. I wish Warren well. But she needs to demonstrate that as mayor, she is also capable of representing the 60 percent of Rochester that is white, Hispanic, and AsianAmerican – rich and poor. RAY LEVATO, IRONDEQUOIT

Unions and management
On a reader’s response to union leader Bruce Popper’s guest commentary (Feedback): It’s pretty
funny that this week in Rochester, of all weeks, there would be union bashing on these pages – this, the week it was announced that the outgoing CEO of Excellus Blues received a nearly $13 million compensation and
the CFO received nearly $11 million. (Ever wonder why America spends twice as much as the other Western nations on health care, and we’re stuck at Number 36 in quality?) Here is a classic example of modern American management. We have hundreds of other examples, easily, including some biggies here in Rochester. If we have ever needed more unions, it’s right now. The problem isn’t a well-paid work force, for cryin’ out loud; the problem is colossal greed and narcissism of modern American business management. We can easily go back to the dawn of the Industrial Revolution (a little over 200 years), when wealth creation took off, although mostly for management and owners. The unions gave us, you know, the weekend, the end of child labor, the minimum wage, paid vacation for workers, the 40-hour work week, workers’ safety, and a bunch of other things that we “couldn’t afford.” People were killed to get us those things – in our time. Funny what the wealthiest country in history can and cannot afford. And the secret to America’s post-war success, 1945 - 1973? A well-paid work force. TROLL WHISPERER

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
Casinos, casinos, casinos everywhere Sometime in the next decade, New York will be awash in casinos. I wonder if the politicians and business leaders who wanted them will be sorry. Casinos are a hot topic in Henrietta right now. The Seneca Nation announced last week that it has bought land off I-390 for a casino, and Henrietta residents quickly geared up for a fight. They turned out at a Town Board meeting on March 5, saying a casino would change the character of the town, breed crime, and hurt the residential neighborhood nearby. Two days later, Town Supervisor Jack Moore announced his own opposition to the casino, and he said he’ll introduce a resolution opposing it at the Town Board’s March 19 meeting. If the board approves Moore’s resolution, it’s not clear whether the Senecas will keep pursing the project in Henrietta. They released a statement expressing disappointment that they hadn’t had a chance to present their proposal to the community. But Henrietta officials and residents can’t, on their own, block the casino. A 1794 treaty gives the Senecas sovereign-nation status. The Senecas do have to get permission from state and federal officials, and that process will take time. I assume, though, that if the Senecas are denied a casino in Henrietta, they’ll be welcomed somewhere else locally. We’ll get a Seneca casino. And that’s not the only one in the planning stages. In a fit of wool-over-the-eyes madness last fall, New Yorkers voted to amend the state constitution and permit up to seven new non-Indian casinos: four in Upstate New York now and three more in the New York City area after seven years. So far, there seems to be plenty of competition, both for hosting the casinos and for operating them. State officials responsible for approving locations and operators will probably make their decision before the end of this year, according to the New York Times. It’s not as if New Yorkers lack places to lose their money now, right in the Empire State. We already have five casinos and nine racinos, smaller gambling establishments attached to racetracks. There are plenty of reasons to be concerned about casinos, including gambling addiction. But I’m becoming increasingly incensed by the duplicity of many of the supporters, who insist that casinos are guaranteed job creators. They’re not. In fact, they can do great economic harm. The warning signs are everywhere, in formal economic-impact studies and in places like Niagara Falls, New York, where the promised city revitalization is nowhere to be seen.
“I’m becoming increasingly incensed by the duplicity of many of the supporters, who insist that casinos are guaranteed job creators.”
Casinos aren’t just gambling halls. They’re designed as self-contained units, with hotels, restaurants, and retail shops. Casino operators want their customers to stay put, not wander off and do something else. So while a casino and its related businesses can prosper, nearby businesses aren’t so lucky. Adding to casinos’ competitive advantage: they often offer “points” or other incentives to get patrons to eat, drink, and buy within their complex. They make their real money, after all, on gambling. And by the way: business is a survivalof-the-fittest affair. If we get too many casinos, some will go out of business, leaving their host communities with a big empty complex, dashed hopes, unemployment, and money problems. Some job creator that’ll be. And I can’t resist passing this along: One of the big proponents of the constitutional amendment making all this possible was a group called NY Jobs Now, a coalition of gaming businesses, other business groups, and labor unions. NY Jobs Now spent $3.8 million promoting the casino amendment, according to the Albany Times-Union, and one of the big selling points was that new casinos would create jobs. The group cared so much about jobs for New Yorkers that when it looked for companies to handle the advertising and other promotion, it turned to… a company based in Washington, D.C., and Georgia and one based in Illinois.

Ciminelli has been filling the job on an interim basis since the retirement of former chief James Sheppard at the end of the year. The appointment needs the approval of City Council. Ciminelli will play a significant role in the upcoming reorganization of the police department. Mayor Lovely Warren wants the RPD to move from a two-section model to a quadrant-based model.

Dems push reforms
Democrats in the County Legislature proposed changes to the county charter, the laws governing the county’s organization and operation. Among the proposals: changing the composition of the commission that redraws Legislature district lines, and adding new oversight and recordkeeping requirements for county-formed local development corporations.
It takes more than bike lanes and sidewalks to make a community hospitable to cyclists and pedestrians. Law enforcement plays a big part, too. More people are walking and biking, so police officers need to have a comprehensive understanding of the laws governing pedestrians and cyclists. A March 17 and 18 training session for local police officers should help accomplish that task, says Pete Bucci, a public information officer for the State Department of Motor Vehicles. The training program is one of a few being held across the state this year by the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee and several local and state partners.
Henrietta Supervisor Jack Moore says he’ll introduce a resolution at an upcoming meeting stating the Town Board’s opposition to a possible Seneca Nation of Indians casino in Henrietta. The move would be mostly symbolic. The Senecas recently purchased land on Clay Road.

The training program will be held at Monroe County’s Public Safety Training Facility on Scottsville Road. Among the local agencies participating are the Brighton, Brockport, and Rochester police departments, as well as the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, Bucci says. The Genesee Transportation Council will be represented, and a few departments from neighboring counties are also signed up. (The registration deadline was last week.) A letter sent to local police chiefs says that the session will include training on the laws, how bicycle
and pedestrian crashes happen, how to investigate and report crashes involving cyclists or pedestrians, and ways to partner on safety efforts. And it says that the session is best suited to certain officers, including bike patrols, supervisors, training personnel, and neighborhood or community policing officers. “Not surprisingly, officers don’t enforce laws they don’t know and they don’t enforce laws they can’t defend,” the letter says.

Statewide environmental groups praise Governor Cuomo’s proposed changes to the brownfield programs. The credits were initially passed to encourage clean-up and reuse of contaminated properties in distressed communities, they said, but they haven’t fulfilled that goal.
ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE | BY JEREMY MOULE
Cuomo wants brownfields credit reform When Governor Andrew Cuomo presented his 2014-15 budget earlier this year, he called on the Legislature to renew and reform the state’s brownfield tax credit program. Critics say the help isn’t going where it’s really needed, to distressed communities. The program provides tax credits to developers who clean up and reuse contaminated properties. It’s set to expire in 2015, and both environmental groups and developers want the program to continue. Cuomo’s budget would extend the program for 10 years, but with substantial reforms. Tax credits for clean-up would no longer exceed what a developer spent to do the work. And brownfield redevelopment tax credits would only be available for priority economic development projects, properties that have been vacant for a decade or more, and sites that are worth less than the cost of cleaning them up. But a coalition of developers, consultants, and business policy groups is pushing back at the governor’s proposal. In a press release, the Developers Brownfield Alliance didn’t directly oppose Cuomo’s reforms, but said New York’s existing brownfield tax credit program should be a national model. Programs in other states often award credits only for clean-up work, not
construction, the coalition said. And New York’s program outperforms those programs in terms of investment, job creation, and project completion, it said. The group released a report to back up its assertions. The Erie Harbor development on Mt. Hope Avenue is one of many local projects to benefit from state brownfield tax credits. FILE PHOTO The report said that developers wouldn’t have happened without the tax have completed 142 brownfield projects credits, according to the report. statewide.

EDUCATION | BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN
RTA sues The Rochester Teachers Association has filed a lawsuit alleging that the new teacher evaluations are unfair because they fail to adequately account for the effects of severe poverty on students. Rochester is one of the poorest school districts in the state. The suit was filed in State Supreme Court by New York State United Teachers on behalf of the RTA and more than 100 Rochester teachers, says a NYSUT press release. The complaint names John King, commissioner of the State Education Department; the State Board of Regents; State Education Department; University of the State of New York; Rochester school district; Rochester Board of Education; and Rochester schools Superintendent Bolgen Vargas. The complaint asks the court to nullify the 2012-2013 teacher ratings, and to permanently prevent the parties named in the suit from taking “adverse employment action” against the plaintiffs based on those ratings. Nearly 900 Rochester city school teachers were rated ineffective or needs development under the new evaluations. RTA President Adam Urbanski says in a press release that the evaluations do not account for the effects of poverty and attendance on student performance. As a result, he says, “dedicated and effective teachers received unfair ratings based on student outcomes that were beyond their control.”

Bringing back Marketview Heights Scott Page states an obvious but bitter truth: Fixing up a few homes a year is nice, he says, but it doesn’t transform a neighborhood. For that, he says, you need drama. Page is the principal of Interface Studio, a Philadelphia-based urban planning and design firm. The City of Rochester hired Interface to create an Urban Renewal District plan for the Marketview Heights neighborhood in northeast Rochester. City Council got its first look at the draft plan during a meeting last week. Marketview Heights is named for the Public Market — one of the city’s most popular attractions and the place to go to boost your political profile or campaign for a cause. But the vitality of the market has had limited spillover to the surrounding neighborhood, which struggles with blight, low property values, crime, and other problems. City Council voted in 2011 to make the neighborhood an Urban Renewal District. The 60-acre district includes 13 blocks of Marketview that are a citydesignated Focused Investment area. The latter designation singles out an area for improvement through an extended, intense application of resources and services. Focused Investment revitalized houses on Woodward, Ontario, Scio, and Union streets, says Julie Beckley, senior community housing planner for the city. Union also received a massive infusion of development funds, Beckley says, through the Union Street Improvement Project. New development has also taken place through Focused Investment. And there have been other efforts to improve the area, including a master plan and planned improvement project at the Public Market, and an improvement project for the Union Street rail bridge. The Urban Renewal District is a way to build on the gains achieved through those other efforts, particularly Focused Investment, says City Council member Jackie Ortiz, who lives in Marketview Heights. But it’s not without controversy. “It allows the city certain rights, to be able to do certain things,” Ortiz says. “There are some things that will probably be controversial in regards to taking down houses — acquiring them and starting new development.” Historically, Urban Renewal has been controversial because, in the 1950’s and 1960’s, it involved large-scale demolition of neighborhoods and downtown areas, sometimes including historic buildings. Interface’s plan for Marketview includes removing blight; improving public areas through art, lighting, and other efforts; continuing residential infill development to
MARCH 12-18, 2014
help stabilize the neighborhood; and filling commercial vacancies on East Main Street. The latter includes a proposed pharmacy near the old Eastman Dental Dispensary. But the drama that Page talked about — the plan’s punch — comes from a proposed 75unit townhouse development on Lewis Street. “It’s a huge strip within our neighborhood that has been the source of many of the nuisances,” Ortiz says. “There is a widespread amount of drug selling, bootlegging, gambling — all kinds of things that are, unfortunately, the source of many of the problems.” The city would need to acquire 13 privately owned parcels and a parking lot belonging to Ametek Power Instruments — the lot would be relocated — to build the townhouses. The infill and rehab strategy for Marketview would require additional acquisition of private property. Page said that the people being relocated would have first shot at the new properties. The renewal plan calls on the city to have “preliminary conversations with individual owners of affected properties” to explain eminent domain and to talk about relocation expenses and possible buyouts. A seemingly minor element of the plan could also have a dramatic impact: the gating off of Marketview’s alleys. The alleys have become veins of criminal activity, officials say, and act as getaway routes for drug dealers and other criminals. Interface proposes gating the alleys so that only neighbors and first responders have access. Neighbors could also be recruited to beautify the alleys, the plan says. Creating density in the neighborhood overall would also improve public safety, officials say, because you’d have more eyes and ears on the streets. City Council members had several questions about Interface’s plan at last week’s

meeting. The city is trying to break up the concentration of poverty in its neighborhoods, including Marketview Heights, Ortiz said, and the townhouse development, with all affordable rental units, won’t achieve that. Page said that it’s what the market can support currently, but that could change down the line. Ortiz says the plan is also lacking in commercial development. “It’s got a couple of things for employment,” she says, “but not really as many as I’d like to see.” Council Vice President Dana Miller said a frequent challenge the city faces when undertaking economic development projects is convincing neighbors that they won’t be priced-out if and when property values improve. Officials at the meeting talked about ways to alleviate that concern, such as phasing in any resulting tax increases. It’s important to remember that there’s no
funding for the Marketview plan yet, and that the plan still needs the approval of City Council. The city’s Beckley says that the plan is a multi-year endeavor and that the city would look to the state and federal governments for funding. “Financing is its own journey,” she said. Another challenge: sustaining resident involvement. Marketview residents have been extremely involved in the development of the plan, Beckley and Ortiz say. But getting them to take ownership of their neighborhood is the key to a successful, sustainable transformation, they say.

The Marketview Heights neighborhood is named for the Public Market (pictured), but doesn’t share in the market’s prosperity.
“You just can’t turn to an outside party to make your life different in a given neighborhood,” Beckley says. “So I really would emphasize the human dimension in all of this. They don’t have to be best friends, but everybody has a common benefit when people come together and beautify a corner, turn it into a garden from a lot that’s just bleak. And that does call for organization and effort.” A good sign that Marketview residents are ready to take responsibility for their neighborhood, Beckley says, is the success of the Marketview Heights Collective Action Program. The citizens effort, which has been going for six years, consists of three actions teams: safety and security, housing and development, and beautification. The program recently received a $50,000 grant from the Greater Rochester Health Foundation, Ortiz says, which will be used to take an inventory of the neighborhood’s human assets. “Who lives in our neighborhood? What do they know how to do?” she says. “Are we really utilizing people who live in our neighborhood to the best of our ability? Everyone has something to contribute; sometimes you just don’t know it.” A public informational meeting on the Urban Renewal District Plan will be scheduled soon, Beckley says.

Dining Where food is worth eating [ ROUND-UP ] BY KATIE LIBBY
Much has changed in Webster since I left the suburb (back when there was only one Webster high school, kids). I currently live in the city, and usually proximity and convenience determine where I satisfy my culinary cravings. But a recent excursion through my hometown prompted several reactions — “That wasn’t there before!” “Where did Shoecraft Road go?” “I’m old!” — as well as some surprising foodie discoveries. What impressed me most about Webster 2.0 is the town’s now-thriving Main Street scene. My memories of Main Street in Webster were limited to the Burger King parking lot and Friendly’s. Now it is home to a variety of interesting, locally owned restaurants, bars, and shops. These are just some of the culinary offerings of the place “where life is worth living.” Do you have favorite Webster restaurants we neglected to mention? Add them to the comments section of this article at rochestercitynewspaper.com. When I walked into Barry’s Old School Irish Pub (2 W. Main St., 545-4258, barrysoldschoolirish.com) for the first time, I did not think that I would walk away having had the best lobster macaroni and cheese of my life ($17). But that is exactly what happened. Wooden-barrel tables with a combination of folding chairs and bar stools occupy the small bar and café areas. Patrons order from the café counter and can enjoy a pint (Guinness, duh) while they wait for their food to arrive. When the steaming crock of cheesy, lobstery goodness was placed in the middle of our table, jaws dropped to the floor. Large chunks of fresh lobster studded a combination of perfectly cooked macaroni and a cheese sauce that inspired thoughts of bowl licking. Owner Danny Barry informed us that this heavenly concoction is served most Friday nights. Also of note: Barry’s offers a Sunday breakfast buffet ($12 for adults, $6 for children) with homemade corned beef hash, fresh-baked Irish soda bread, and other breakfast fare that will definitely bring me back. If you haven’t been to the new(ish) AMC Theatre in Webster — the one with the giant, reclining seats — then you haven’t truly lived. Directly across the street from the theater you will find Maa’s Diner (2215 Empire Blvd., 671-9090) in the space formerly occupied by Fujiya Japanese Restaurant. Maa’s is a family-owned,

vintage-styled restaurant offering standard diner fare. The menu features giant burgers and something called The Hog Plate, its take on the infamous Rochester combination of mac salad, potatoes, meat, and hot sauce ($13.59). The twist here is that the thing is gigantic — it’s served on a tray because it won’t fit on a plate. If you have eaten a Hog Plate and survived to tell the tale, I have two questions. First, are you OK? Second, when you were getting toward the end, did you see a light? Please
leave your tale in the comments section. The Old Church Mall in Webster was a popular hangout during my high-school days, primarily because of Village Mall Video, Heavy Metal Records, and Maria’s Mexican Restaurant (75 W. Main St., 872-1237, mariasmexican.com). Maria’s has been serving authentic and delicious Mexican fare for more than 30 years. When I turned 21 I was able to enjoy Maria’s even more because of the heavenly margaritas. The menu includes standouts like the Hole
Mole, a generous portion of fresh tortilla chips covered in gooey melted cheese with a bowl of house-made guacamole ($9.95), and desserts like the tres leches cake, a combination of moist sponge cake topped with sweet milk and fresh fruit ($4.95), or traditional flan ($3.95). I’m a sucker for a good gyro. In the past, the Lilac Festival used to be an opportunity for me to appreciate the beauty of the lilacs and leisurely browse the arts and continues on page 18 rochestercitynewspaper.com
Rochester’s emergent community-radio stations
The current media landscape is a mess, riddled with corporate interests and commercialism. As people continue to shift their primary sources of information and entertainment to the internet, consumers are caught up in debates about media monopolies and the battle for net neutrality. But amid all of this noise, a subculture has been quietly emerging, resurrecting and reinventing a thing of the past: the indie radio station. In the fall of 2013, a legislative reversal resulted in an open application period for low-power FM radio broadcasting licenses. Several area groups seized the opportunity, and are now in the process of getting licenses, setting up shop, and honing their visions for community radio. At present, two groups — Rochester Free Radio, and what is informally being called Radio MuCCC (with a to-be-announced name that will be determined by its official call letters, once chosen) — have acquired station placement on the dial, as well as construction permits from the Federal Communications Commission. Three other groups within Rochester are in competition for a third frequency, which may result in the FCC’s decision to create a time-share situation. (Those groups are Rochester Community Television, the IberoAmerican Action League, and a group based out of Rochester Institute of Technology.) A Christian group in Fairport also applied for and acquired a station. With a legal ceiling of 100 watts,
low-power FM radio stations have a limited reach — roughly a 3.5-mile radius — but can be used to offer communities a broader range of niche content. Low-power stations in other 10 CITY MARCH 12-18, 2014
communities frequently highlight local music, politics, culture, and creative personalities. Although electronic devices continue to become ever slicker, the trend for nostalgic, homemade products continues to gain steam. Inkjet printers and e-cards made letterpress obsolete, but that art form has resurged due its aesthetic, and the time and care placed into the construction of the created objects. Musicians are releasing new music on vinyl for the depth and richness in sound. Similarly, an interest in indie, DIY community radio stations has been renewed. The difference is that broadcasting never really went out of popularity — it just became overwhelmingly commercial. “Radio is easy to produce and free to consume, and it is responsive in a really cool way,” says Radio MuCCC co-founder, Mike Yates, who is also a DJ for WITR. He says one of the unique elements about hosting a radio show is that it’s so immediate. “I came to the [WITR] station an hour before my show, and found out Lou Reed had died. Being in a radio station, I had this time, and a communal library to draw from, and I was able to put together a show in an hour to respond to something that had happened two hours before,” he says. American airwaves used to be clogged with pirate radio stations, says Rochester Community Radio co-founder Chuck McCoy. In the year 2000, then Federal Communications Commission Chairman Bill Kennard discussed the idea of regulating the spaces between commercial stations by allowing community groups to apply for low-power FM broadcasting licenses. The National Association of Broadcasters, a lobby group representing the interests of for-profit, over-the-air radio and television broadcasters, argued that these stations would interfere with commercial radio broadcasting. In response, the so-called Radio Broadcasting Preservation Act, which limited LPFM to rural areas, was passed in Congress and signed into law by President Clinton. Activism and petitions called for legislators to revisit the case for LPFM broadcasting in cities. “The FCC’s engineers are second to none, and they said it would cause no interference,” says McCoy. A new law passed in 2010 to allow cities in on the fun, but the FCC
dragged its feet for a while, McCoy says. The FCC announced it would hold a filing window for applications in the fall of 2012; a year later the public was given roughly 30 days to submit applications for LPFM licenses. The three founders of Rochester Free Radio are
no strangers to the airwaves. Jeff Moulton, who currently works for the Greece Central School District, has worked in radio and television since the 1960’s, with stints at WBEE, Channel 13, and other stations. McCoy has worked in and out of radio professionally, mostly as a DJ, since the 1970’s, and currently hosts the evening show at WLGZ Legends 102.7FM. McCoy plans to keep his show on the commercial station after the community station takes off this summer, and doesn’t see a conflict of interest. McCoy sees the need for both commercial and community radio. “The whole point of LPFM is to be an alternative,” he says. In fact, LPFM radio isn’t meant to compete with the commercial stations. The signal is very low power — enough to cover the city and parts of surrounding suburbs, but nothing compared to the reach of WXXI or any of the commercial stations. If someone gets into LPFM broadcasting looking to make a dent in the ratings, “they’re going to be deeply disappointed,” says McCoy. But ratings aren’t why he and his co-founders got into free radio. “We did this because we wanted to play disc jockey on our own station,” he says. The other Rochester Free Radio co-founder, Dave Sutliff-Atias, is assistant director of advocacy at Center for Disability Rights and has run for the Rochester City School Board twice and Rochester City Council on the Green Party ticket. McCoy says the trio has been kicking around the idea of developing a community radio station for years. They experimented with broadcasting on AM with low-power transmitters, but without very impressive results. Then in 2010, Congress changed the LPFM laws to include urban areas, and they knew the FCC would soon hold an application period for LPFM stations. That filing window took place between October 17 and November 14, 2013. Because there are only so many frequencies available
between commercial stations, the FCC has no plans to host another application period, “so this might have been an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” says McCoy. Rochester Free Radio and Radio MuCCC received their confirmation notices from the FCC within a day of one another, and both parties congratulated one another. McCoy says there might be ways in which the two groups will work together, and have already referred people interested in shows to one another. Radio MuCCC’s Mike Yates has been a DJ at
WITR 89.7 since the summer of 2008. Like the founders of Rochester Free Radio, Yates had been considering starting a community radio station for years. His interest was sparked in late 2009 when WITR’s bylaws were changed, requiring everyone working at the station to have some affiliation with RIT (though Yates was grandfathered in and continues to work at WITR). Witnessing this change at a station that had historically been a place where the wider community could participate in radio opened Yates’s eyes to the need for a place that would encourage community participation, he says. Yates tossed around ideas with a colleague that didn’t really go anywhere. In late 2012, Yates spotted a Facebook post by musician Matt Werts, a friend of some friends, expressing the desire to start a station. Yates contacted him, and soon brought in another WITR DJ, Johanna Buran. (The group also initially included Genevieve Waller, who was a DJ at WRUR 88.5 and gallery director at the University of Rochester’s Hartnett Gallery, but Waller has since relocated to another city.) Together, the group developed a vision for the free-form station: its identity would be created by the people who are creating the content. “We wanted something that would very actively pursue community engagement and something that would emphasize diversity of people, visions, voices,” says Yates. Yates and crew had heard about the reversal of the 2000 Radio Broadcast Protection Act, and knew the FCC would be taking applications last fall. But they had
neither a 501c3 status — a requirement for LPFM licensing — nor did they have enough time to acquire it before the application period closed. A partnership with an extant non-profit provided a solution. Yates met with John Borek, who is on the board at the nonprofit Multi-use Community Cultural Center on Atlantic Avenue, and determined that a partnership with MuCCC would be a good match, “MuCCC was a perfect fit,” says Yates, citing the parallel missions of the two groups. “MuCCC is a theater for people who don’t have a theater. They provide the space without editorial content, and they allow people to enact their visions, to share their talent and their passion,” he says. Radio MuCCC also received some assistance from Prometheus Radio Project, a non-profit organization in Philadelphia seeking to support the creation of community radio stations. Out of a national pool, Radio MuCCC was recommended for, and awarded, a scholarship for the Torch-Bearer program, through which Prometheus provides applicants with a case manager, and connects them with an engineer to help with the required engineering study the FCC requires before issuing a construction permit. (The study, among other considerations, ensures that the station’s signal won’t interfere with those of nearby commercial radio stations.) Radio MuCCC’s antenna was originally going to be placed on a tower atop the Anderson Alley building in the Neighborhood of the Arts, but is now slated to join North Coast Radio’s tower at the Fedder Industrial Park on East Main Street, where the Radio MuCCC studio will be located. The group will take over the space currently inhabited by Dave Anderson, who runs Saxon Studios, which is moving around the corner to Hayward Avenue. “It’s a recording studio, so it’s laid out well for radio, and it’s got a lot of history with so many great Rochester bands and national acts,” says Yates. “It’s a nice space to have the baton passed to us.”
Though founders of both stations plan
to present freeform programming, each group has a vision for the kinds of shows it would like to include. “We’re going to give people who want to do music shows free rein to put together diverse and idiosyncratically curated shows,” says Yates of Radio MuCCC. “We’re going to provide a space for people to do original, comedic, dramatic, and musical performances. We’re going to have a space for relevant and interesting talk, and a place for experimentation — a place for voices that are underrepresented in the Rochester media. And on the other side of that, we’re going to provide really engaging experiences for listeners. We’re going to expand the range of musical and cultural expression on the radio,” he says. Rochester Free Radio’s founders “pledged on our license to do eight hours minimum of local programming, but that’s only to start. It will be more,” says McCoy. The board of Rochester Free Radio also plans to give a voice to the voiceless of Rochester. Sutliff-Atias says they’re working on securing hosts for some programming on African culture and history, and reaching out to Rochester’s Latino community as well. They plan to feature local music,
curated music programs, student showcases, and talk radio, including in-depth conversations about local politics. Rochester Free Radio would like to give time slots to Rochesterians who are interested in reporting, too. “I know people who are at every City Council meeting. And they take that knowledge and take their perspectives and just go home with it,” Sutliff-Atias says. “They might complain on Facebook, but they don’t actually do anything with it.” Rochester Free Radio may be an outlet for such citizens to share what they’ve learned and gain more audience interaction. MuCCC’s board of directors will provide oversight for the radio station. Yates, Werts, and Buran are currently developing a fundraising strategy, developing an intake process for participants, and doing targeted outreach to that end as well. “It’s becoming more and more real every day,” says Yates. Though non-commercial radio has a wider, freer range of viable programming by nature, these new community stations won’t be without regulation. “We’ll be under the same restrictions as full-power stations,” continues on page 12

new waves continues from page 11
says Yates. “There’s no cursing, and there are legal restrictions against defamatory talk and things of that nature. But as long as we are reporting to the FCC in a timely fashion, keeping paperwork, and people aren’t broadcasting hate speech or obscene content, we’re basically free to do what we want,” he says. Rochester Free Radio organizers also want to promote free speech, but won’t tolerate vitriol. “Glenn Beck wannabes need not apply,” says McCoy. “We don’t want to get down in the mud. If you don’t like someone, you can give your opinion, but no attacks,” he says. “We don’t want people to come on air and say, ‘This person is corrupt,’” says Sutliff-Atias. “Now, if you want to say this person has done A, B, C, and make a case for it, that’s fine. There are a lot of reasons to be frustrated with the way things are, but we want to talk about solutions,” he says. Neither station is interested in religious programming. “That doesn’t mean you can’t talk about religion and its role in society, but we’re not putting your sermon on air. There are other outlets for that,” says Sutliff-Atias. The stations won’t consider infomercial-esque programming, either. You can talk about your expertise in line with your work, says Sutliff-Atias, but overt self-promotion is out. Aside from callers and donations, measuring
the success of the radio programming can be a tricky matter. In our online era, feedback is instantaneous (and sometimes hollow), but there isn’t a “Like” button on the radio dial. And commercial-free radio means the absence of a ratings system, by which stations prove to advertisers that a certain quantity of listeners are being reached. Both groups say they’ll gauge their success if they are financially solvent, and able to maintain creativity and diversity in their spectrum of programming. For Radio MuCCC, success means “bringing people onboard who get what we’re trying to do, and really thrive in the kind of environment we’re trying to create,” says Yates “And within those shows, reaching out to people, having bands on, doing interviews, creating original content that is interesting and evocative,” he says. An ultimate goal for Rochester Free Radio is helping to bring about positive change in our city, with regards to our segregation, poverty, expenditure of tax dollars, and issues with our schools, says Sutliff-Atias. “We’d also like to be an example — down the road, we’d like our radio station to be off the grid, in terms of its electricity usage,” he says. 12 CITY MARCH 12-18, 2014
Each group has received a construction permit from the FCC, which is a green light to begin installing an antenna and building a station. The LPFM broadcasting license is given after construction and an inspection are complete. Sutliff-Atias received confirmation that Rochester Free Radio will be based at the Main Street Armory, and the plan is to be on air by the end of the summer. Radio MuCCC organizers aim to be on air by the fall. Both stations will broadcast from the east side of town, and though the signal is meant to reach the whole city, it will need to pass through the buildings downtown, and will be weaker on the west side of the river. Funding remains one of the biggest challenges for both stations. Because we’re talking about ad-free radio, the groups’ options are limited to donations, grants, and considering underwriters without compromising the integrity of their mission. Costs to consider include rent, electricity, heat, equipment, an emergency broadcast monitor, publishing fees, service fees for online streaming, web hosting fees, and archiving costs. “To makes something like what we’re offering financially sustainable will be a challenge,” says Yates. The economic climate being what it is, asking people for donations is always a challenge, but Yates says he’s confident they are providing something that people will recognize the need for. “And we have been very lucky to work with people who want this to succeed,” he says. Radio MuCCC has been collecting second-hand equipment, which will go a long way toward cutting costs. At least initially, programming will be filled with radio hosts on a fully volunteer basis. “If you have an idea and want to put in the time, get in touch with us,” says Sutliff-Atias. Learn more and reach out at facebook.com/rocfreeradio and rochesterfreeradio.com. You can eventually tune in to hear the station at 106.3 FM. Yates says he isn’t looking specifically for people to fill a genre of music, “more like a genre of person: someone who is passionate and knowledgeable about music, who wants to share what they love,” he says. In terms of other programming, Yates is interested in a wide range of diversity in age, race, and background, and is conducting targeted outreach for contributors. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can eventually tune in to hear Radio MuCCC at 104.3 FM.
FAVORITE RADIO SHOWS The personalities of the new community stations are still undetermined, and will be shaped by programming and participants. But you can get a sense of what the founders are looking for through their descriptions of their favorite radio shows. Mike Yates (Radio MuCCC): “I wanted to get into radio because of WFMU, which is a station in Jersey City, New Jersey. They are one of the oldest free-form stations in the nation, one of the most famous ones. They have a huge range of people doing primarily music shows that are just adventures. A mix of new and rare and classic and crazy. Great music shows, great comedy shows, great interviews. There was one show, “The Best Show,” which was around for 13 years but just ended in December, and was hosted by Tom Scharpling and Jon Wurster, the drummer for Superchunk. They’re just so funny and weirdly moving sometimes. It’s the most important piece of entertainment in my life.” Archives: wfmu.org/playlists/BS. Dave Sutliff-Atias (Rochester Free Radio): “Vin Scelsa’s ‘Idiot’s Delight.’ It’s a radio show that has traveled all over the dial down in NYC for years and right now is on WFUV at Fordham University. You can hear the last two shows at wfuv.org/archives. Right now, Vin does two hours pre-recorded, but the show used to be four hours live and included live performances, interviews, etc. He would read prose on the show, play long sets of music...it was free form in earnest. Even now, I don’t necessarily like everything on there, but you can tell he plays what he likes and enjoys what he’s doing. That matters.” Chuck McCoy (Rochester Free Radio): “I used to enjoy listening to Don Imus when he was on the old WNBC in NYC (I don’t think he’s that funny anymore). There was a show I listened to up here off WHAS 840 AM in Louisville back in the old days, an overnight all-oldies show hosted by the late Joe Donovan. At 3 a.m. he would do an entire hour of odd and obscure songs. There was a very funny guy named Tim Kincaid (a.k.a. local TV’s Ranger Bob) who did mornings on the old WNYR 990 AM here in Rochester. I listened to him in Buffalo — his comedy voice character bits definitely inspired me to do the same. A couple other funny guys I could sometimes pick up early in the morning: Don Weeks/WGY in Schenectady and Fig Newton/WWWE in Cleveland. Of course, I’m very big into comedy, so I tend to gravitate in that direction.”

— BY DAVID RAYMOND
With the snide savvy of Jim Carroll and psycho-sexual swagger of The Cramps lost in the Delta, Hook Face’s eponymous debut dishes out some beautifully dark, dangerous rock ’n’ roll with a noir-ish splendor. It’s a bare-boned affair; there is not an ounce of fluff or fat to be found on any of the album’s generous 15 tracks. Hook Face is a classic line-up — essentially a re-tooled, less-sonic SLT, a Rochester band that rivalled The Stooges. Much of that comparison is inspired by Matt Sabo’s incredible voice; a voice drenched in blood and wisdom and a menacing sexuality. (“Well you know I stole more than kisses, she said I was going to hell,” he sings on “Well.”) “Hook Face” is varied in its consistency; this pony knows a few tricks. There are detours into the blues, hillbilly boogie, and garage rock, but it all maintains a minor-keyed, sweet mid-tempo drive ’n’ throb. It’s perfect for dancing when lights are low…or they are off altogether. — FRANK DE BLASE Hook Face celebrates the release of “Hook Face” with special guests Nod, on Friday, March 14, 9 p.m. at Monty’s Krown, 875 Monroe Ave. $4.

Deep into a conversation with Brandon Terzic, the question of identity comes up. Terzic has given it some thought. “I could go and live in Jordon, learn Arabic, wear a djellaba, convert to Islam and change my name to Kareem, but in the end I’m not going to get away from who I am and all the experiences and music that shaped what I’m doing,” says Terzic. “I am what I am.” What he is is an Akron, Ohio-born, Brooklyn resident with Irish, Croatian, and Hungarian roots. He also plays the ancient, 11-stringed, Arabic oud magnificently. When he visits the Bop Shop Sunday,
with kora (West African harp) player Kane Mathis, he’ll also be playing a Malian ngoni. Terzic traces his complex musical identity to the first time his father played him Jimi Hendrix. But at the age of 8, did he understand it? “One of the downsides of being a musician is you get so saturated with the technical, mechanical side of how the sound is produced that you lose the connection to the miraculous in the sound itself,” says Terzic. “When you’re a kid, it’s just the miracle of the tone. So in a lot of ways you can never really replace the first time you ingest music.” “The main thing I got from Jimi’s music was this sense of freedom,” Terzic says. “No matter how freaky you play, you can never be more of a freak than he was. It opened the door to me trying to digest heavy musical expression. From Hendrix I went to Coltrane and Beethoven.” By 17 Terzic was in a blues band covering Hendrix and Eric Clapton.
Though he admits lacking the musicality, he could play the riffs. That is until, at 19, he went to a Buddy Guy concert. “I came home and almost wanted to smash my Stratocaster,” says Terzic. “It was like an identity crisis. But I had the wherewithal to know that to grow musically, you have to grow personally. I felt like I had exhausted my inspiration in my hometown, doing the music I was doing. I was insanely restless. I felt that I couldn’t develop as a human being unless I got as far away as possible.” With some money he’d saved, he took off for London and stayed with his mother’s friend, Chrissie Hynde, from the Pretenders. But, Terzic says, “after five days she kicked me out because the guitar player from the Clash was coming.” He took off for Amsterdam and got robbed at knifepoint, but that didn’t dampen his wanderlust. Paris, Rome, Florence, Prague, Vienna, and Greece; Terzic covered the continent. But he did so without a guitar. “I had some ambition to be a literary man,” says Terzic. “I was reading Henry Miller. He had gone to Paris. All the ex-pat writers had gone to Paris. I had this idea to go over there and see what was up.” Terzic returned just in time for the late
1990’s Internet boom. With no college education but a knack for computing, he landed a job at a New York cableinternet company. “I could have been making six figures but I never had any ambition,” says Terzic. “I could never identify myself as this guy working at this company. I had an intellectual superiority complex; I thought I was above all this shit.” Meanwhile, he began taking lessons from double-neck guitar wizard Dave “Fuze” Fiuczynski. “I tried to study jazz. I wanted to be a cutting-edge virtuoso guitar player, but it was like a shoe that I couldn’t fit on my foot,” says Terzic. “Fiuczynski became my hero. Ironically, I became one of his disciples. I had a double-neck guitar that was fretless. I was trying to apply a Middle Eastern, Indian ethnic slant to downtown jazz.” But it didn’t work. So, there was only one thing to do. “I quit my job and I flew to the Middle East — Egypt and Israel,” Terzic says. continues on page 18

crafts booths, but it has now become solely about going directly to the food tent and purchasing a sloppy, glorious gyro. I inevitably drop most of it all over myself and then maybe stay and look at a lilac. The menu at Gyromania (1205 Bay Road, 6711080, rochestergyros.com) features a wide assortment of pitas, including three variations on the classic gyro, as well as classic Greek mainstays like pastitsio ($10) and moussaka ($10). The restaurant describes its rice pudding as “heaven in a cup.” You may very well have mixed feelings about ordering something called a “feed pan” when you go to BC’s Chicken Coop (9 South Ave., 265-1185, https://sites.google.com/ site/bcschickencoop), especially when you’re on a date. What the “feed pan” refers to at BC’s Chicken Coop are its sides. These include green beans ($3.25 for small, $4.25 for large) that are sautéed with garlic, tomatoes, and bacon; homemade macaroni and cheese; and mashed potatoes with homemade gravy — but those are only half of the options available. The main attraction, however, is the fried chicken, available in both family size (The Hen House, $29.50) and individual meal portions. Chicken and waffles are also on the menu ($12.50), along with ribs and the “highly ranked famous jumbo wings” ($10.80 per dozen). Brimont Bistro (24 W. Main St., 872-3170, brimontcateringcorporation. com) started off as a catering company, but now has a 50-seat restaurant location serving lunch and dinner. The lunch menu offers an assortment of sandwiches and salads, and all the options cost less than $10. The French bistro dinner menu is where Brimont Bistro really shines. The appetizer options include a duck confit ($10) and a goat-cheese Napoleon (phyllo dough, caramelized pear, and apple cider granite). The root vegetable beef bourguignon ($19) sounds like a warm haven from the bitter cold we experienced over the past few months. It features carrots, potatoes, parsnips, onions, and celery in a stew made with braised beef and red wine. Most of the dinner-menu offerings stay under the $20 mark.
He took up the cumbus, (a Turkish, fretless banjo-like instrument), and started busking in Jerusalem. It was a great way to meet people. They’d buy him coffee and food, even if they were surprised to find out that he was from Ohio. But there was still more to his quest. “I had reached a saturation point as a musician and person,” Terzic says. “I said, ‘Fuck it,’ and went to Morocco and to Senegal to study with a Griot family of oral historians. That was the most dramatic and dynamic experience.” The family had a lineage of court musicians dating back to the 12th century, Terzic says. “I had this romantic, exaggerated ideal of these stoic, virtuous musicians that are tranquil and angelic. The music is so beautiful. I get there and it’s a total…I’ve traveled to India, I’ve traveled to Brazil, Egypt; I’ve never been to place that was such a culture shock,” Terzic says. “I was in a slum outside Dakar, sleeping on a rooftop, living in the harshest conditions I could ever imagine. No personal space, and to top it all off, the day I get there the patriarch of the family died,” Terzic says. This sent the entire family into chaos and mourning. “I didn’t speak the language so I had no way of understanding what was going on. No one has a job. It’s a communal society, everyone eats together. It was a lot of embracing paradoxes,” he says.

Although he had gone to Senegal to learn
the repertoire, Terzic hardly touched an instrument. “I just survived, lived with the people, walked with them, went to parties, a pilgrimage… And I listened to them because they were playing nonstop,” Terzic says. “When I came back, people were saying, ‘You’ve changed, you’re playing so much better.’ So it was almost by osmoses, from being in the culture,” he says. “It’s like learning the meaning behind the gesture.” But ultimately, what does a Westerner bring to this ancient Middle Eastern/ North African tradition? “You’re not bound by the tradition,” says Terzic. “If you’re from that area and you try to innovate, you’re going to take a lot more heat. The beautiful thing about American culture is we’re so young, we’re not tied or bound to cultural ideas.”

INDIE ROCK | COTTAGE JEFFERSON
Rochester’s Cottage Jefferson describes its music with multiple tags, like rock, garage, indie rock, jangle pop, lo-fi pop, post-punk, and shoegaze. This makes the band a perfect fit for my new all-encompassing, genre-busting festival “Paloozafestoramastock A Go-Go.” This quartet adds dashes of sonic brilliance and urgency amidst its trip to all the styles it claims. I especially dig the lo-fi; the haphazard, care-free approach and attitude, not just the resulting sound. It’s kind of like attention to detail in reverse. Fuzzy, jangly, and most definitely cool.

BLUEGRASS | BLIND OWL BAND
CLASSICAL | NPR’S “FROM THE TOP”
The Blind Owl Band is a bluegrass act that embraces a wide variety of influences and sounds. Although the band’s sound and overall presentation may initially present itself as standard bluegrass, it is apparent through deeper listening that the band strives for a unique, multidimensional approach toward music-making. In fact, the band itself expresses that it uses the instruments of its ancestors, but plays music of its time that is influenced by everything that has happened in the musical world over the years. The Blind Owl Band has shared the stage with such noteworthy acts as Trampled by Turtles, Lucid, and Jatoba, and released its second full-length album, “This Train We Ride Is Made of Wood and Steel,” last year to critical acclaim.
When Christopher O’Riley sweeps into the Eastman Theatre on March 19 to host “From the Top Rochester,” it will be three hours packed with students from the Eastman School of Music and the Rochester Philharmonic Youth Orchestra. Sir James Galway will be on hand to perform with an ensemble of musicians from the RPYO. Local performers will include 19-year-old ESM student Emily Helenbrook, a soprano making her second appearance, and 16-year-old Hochstein School student Annie Jacobs-Perkins, cello, making her debut. “From the Top” airs Sundays at 5 pm on WXXI 91.5 FM. The March 19 performance will be recorded for later broadcast.
The Blind Owl Band performs on Friday, March 14, 10 p.m. at Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. $8. abilenebarandlounge.com. — BY LEAH CREARY Fairport. 377-2452. rocnroll. com. 8 p.m. Free.

The night Larry Kramer kicked me “The Normal Heart” THROUGH MARCH 23 JCC CENTERSTAGE, 1200 EDGEWOOD AVE. $18-$24 | 461-2000, JCCROCHESTER.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY DAVID RAYMOND
When it premiered in 1985 at New York City’s Public Theater, Larry Kramer’s “The Normal Heart” packed a considerable punch as the first successful mainstream play to tackle public attitudes toward the growing AIDS crisis. Time is not always kind to topical or polemical plays, but a recent Broadway revival reminded us that AIDS is still an epidemic, and that Kramer’s play is still a bracing kick in the teeth of complacency and prejudice. As JCC CenterStage’s splendid production of “The Normal Heart” demonstrates, it is also one of the most moving contemporary plays you’re apt to see. The play begins in July 1981, when the writer Ned Weeks, a thinly disguised Larry Kramer (played by Stephen Cena), first encounters a strange disease killing some of his gay friends. The disease’s origins are mysterious, but it is invariably deadly, and it 22 CITY MARCH 12-18, 2014
quickly takes an ever-increasing toll on gay men. Dr. Emma Bookner (Kerry Young), who is treating many of the afflicted men, believes the disease is passed by sexual contact, and urges Ned to tell the gay community that the only way to be sure of staying well is to practice abstinence — advice that many of his friends consider oppressive, especially since Ned recently published a controversial novel damning the New York gay community for its shallowness and sexual indulgence. Newspaper coverage of incidences of the disease is buried on back pages, and the mayor’s office is even less interested in the matter. Ned is confrontational and persistent, however, and eventually gathers the support of his brother Ben (Roy Wise), a wealthy lawyer who loves Ned but can’t accept him as an equal; Felix Turner (Carl Del Buono), a New York Times society reporter; and several other friends (Jake Purcell, Daniel Mejak, Darlando Eanon) who form a group devoted to informing gay men about the threat to their lives. Ned is so critical of their efforts, and so determined to spread the word on his own, that he is eventually rejected from the group and estranged from his brother.
He and Felix have become lovers, but Felix is soon struck by the plague. By the time the play ends, in May 1984, AIDS has started to receive mainstream media attention, the brothers are reconciled, and Felix is dead. “The Normal Heart” was up-to-theminute in the mid-80’s, and one of the surprising things about seeing it in 2014 is that, except for a few topical references, it might have been written yesterday. And it is much more than characters reeling off statistics about AIDS. Kramer’s characters embody the human toll of the disease, as they recount the horrible treatment of themselves and their loved ones, the ignorance and hatred of the outside world, and the fear that paralyzes them as they think they may be the next casualty. (And it should be noted, they’re often very funny; this is a surprisingly witty play.) Amid all of this is a very moving love story as Felix teaches Ned that despite all his rage and frustration, he does indeed have a “normal heart.” The JCC’s presentation of this demanding, rewarding play is simple, but sensational. It is ideally cast and directed so subtly and well by Brian Coughlin that it hardly
seems to be directed at all — it is simply life happening in front of you. The role of Ned Weeks is a physical and emotional workout; the character appears in every scene and plays a large part in most of them. Stephen Cena embodies the character perfectly, not just in his articulate anger, but in his early scenes with Felix — he is a man who can’t quite believe his good luck in finding romance. Carl Del Buono’s Felix, reserved yet funny, is a perfect match for Ned, and they play these scenes with a very winning delicacy. Roy Wise is convincing as Ned’s brother, especially when showing his affectionate wariness. As the closeted president of the group (which in reality became the Gay Men’s Health Crisis), Jake Purcell gives a terrific portrait of a man living in fear and denial, all shiftiness and hesitant delivery, and he has a harrowing monologue late in Act 2 about a hospital’s treatment of his lover’s corpse. Daniel Mejak and Darlando Eanon provide much of the play’s comedy in Act 1, but as the shadows lengthen, their characters display great fear and great strength. As the wheelchair-bound Dr. Brookner, who first discovers the plague and tries mightily to increase awareness of it in the medical community, Kerry Young is only in five scenes, but she is indelible, especially when she confronts an examining doctor who refuses her funding. Having recently seen most of these actors in comedic roles, I was delighted by their wonderfully rounded performances here. Playing the examining doctor mentioned above, and as a closeted official in the Koch administration, Peter Doyle is the very soul of arrogant officiousness. The cast is so strong that even the smallest parts — Jason Ford and Russell Allen as two of the earliest AIDS casualties, and Edward Prunella as a go-fer for the health collective — have an impact. This CenterStage production dispels any fears that “The Normal Heart” might be showing its age. Larry Kramer’s rage remains undimmed — the program book notes that he often stood outside the theater after performances of the recent Broadway revival, handing out letters reminding the audience that AIDS is still very much with us. And it is, not to mention any number of public problems stymied by apathy, politicking, and prejudice. “The Normal Heart” still provides a good and necessary kick, but I think this play’s passion and compassion are what will make it endure.

RECREATION | MAPLE SUGARING
I will admit to being pretentious when it comes to maple syrup. Mrs. Butterworth’s just doesn’t cut it for me (sorry to all you brand loyalists out there). Fortunately, living in New York allows us the privilege of buying pure maple syrup close to home. Beginning Saturday, March 22, RMSC’s Cummings Nature Center (6472 Gulick Rd., Naples) will return for its 36th season of maple sugaring. The event will allow participants to discover various processing techniques, sample pure maple syrup, and chow down at a pancake breakfast. The event takes place on Saturdays and Sundays, March 22-23 and 29-30, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. The pancake breakfast runs 9 a.m.-1 p.m. each day and meals cost $10 for adults and $8 for children (members are offered a discount). Program admission without the breakfast is $3 per person ($10 per family). For more information, visit rmsc.org or call 374-6160. Can’t wait that long for some maple sugaring fun? Visit the Genesee Country Village and Museum (1410 Flint Hill Road, Mumford) for its Maple Sugaring Festival, taking place on Saturdays and Sundays, March 15-23, 9:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Learn how to identify a sugar maple tree, try your hand at tools used when tapping trees, and look back in time at how the early settlers collected sap. The festival also includes a pancake breakfast every day from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Admission to the festival costs $9.50 for adults ($8.50 for the breakfast only), $7.50 for ages 4-16 ($6.50 for the breakfast), and free for children under 3.

THEATER | “BORING EVERYDAY THINGS”
We’ve always been taught not to judge a book by its cover. So keep that advice in mind when approaching the production of OFC Creations’ “Boring Everyday Things.” Despite the deceiving title, this performance is a unique cabaret show featuring a variety of pop and musical-theater numbers that range from comedic numbers to ballads to lively, upbeat pieces. “Boring Everyday Things” focuses on showing the audience the beauty in the ordinary of everyday life. Pieces include “What Kind of Girl Is She,” a quirky inner monologue, and “The Ballad of Sara Berry,” a dark, yet upbeat, ballad centering on the pressures of high school. The performance will be held on Saturday, March 15, at 7:30 p.m. at RAPA’s East End Theatre, 727 E. Main St. Tickets cost $10. For more information and to order tickets, visit rapatheatre.org or call 325-3366. — BY TAYLOR WHITE

Russia in the Great Patriotic War “Stalingrad”
27 million lives in World War II, more than all the other combatants combined, in the conflict (R), DIRECTED BY FEDOR BONDARCHUK that began when Hitler betrayed Stalin’s cozy NOW PLAYING agreement in their non-aggression pact. The greatest battle of that war, the subject [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA of several books and movies, most memorably 2001’s “Enemy at the Gates,” was the protracted, In light of the current tensions involving vicious fight for the city of Stalingrad, a place Russia and Ukraine, a movie about the Soviet of both strategic and symbolic importance. The defense of Stalingrad in 1942 provides some German army had bombed the city to rubble, relevant instruction in some of the history of which caused the Soviets to evacuate most of the that nation and its attitudes toward the rest of civilians, leaving in desperation a token, vulnerable Europe. Most viewers probably know little or population so that their forces would realize they nothing of the suffering the Russians endured were defending people, not simply ruins. in what they call, with some justification, the “Stalingrad” begins oddly, in Japan, showing Great Patriotic War. They claim to have lost the international rescue mission in the aftermath of the great tsunami and earthquake that struck the coast in 2011. A Russian physician speaks to a young German girl trapped in the rubble, soothing her with the tale of his mother’s experience in the battle of Stalingrad. He tells her he had five fathers, the handful of military men trapped in a Philippe Reinhardt and Mariya Smolnikova in “Stalingrad.” PHOTO COURTESY SONY PICTURES
building protecting his mother Katya (Mariya Smolnikova), a 19-year old survivor, who, like all of the men, had lost her family to the war. Once establishing that situation, the movie alternates between the Russian soldiers and the Wehrmacht unit opposing them, cutting back and forth between the two sides and their separate strategies. It also alternates between the two major male characters, the Russian Kapitan Gromov (Pyotr Fyodorov) and the German Kapitan Kan (Thomas Kretschmann). Like Gromov, Kan also tries to protect a woman, a Russian civilian named Masha (Yanina Studilina), thus nicely balancing personalities, motives, and actions. The many battle sequences between the two groups display the ferocity of the attacks and the desperation of the defenders. Outgunned and outmanned, the Russians improvise a number of strategies to withstand the repeated German assaults. They salvage machine guns and ammunition from a wrecked Luftwaffe airplane, fire their one cannon shell so that it bounces off a disabled tank and hits the enemy headquarters, set an ambush hiding under the bodies of German soldiers, etc. Aside from showing the gallant and pathetic efforts of the defenders to help and protect Katya, the director also focuses on the character of Kapitan Kan, distressed by the slaughter he conducts, sickened by his brutal colonel’s deliberate murder of a Russian civilian and her child, and, despite his orders and training, in love with Masha. Threatened
Gimme shelter “Short Term 12” (R), DIRECTED BY DESTIN CRETTON SCREENS SATURDAY AND SUNDAY AT THE DRYDEN [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
by his commander with execution if he cannot capture the Russians’ building, he shares some of his enemies’ desperation. Like many war movies, “Stalingrad” mixes its human stories with numerous battle scenes, showing not only the usual gunfights, grenade explosions, and cannon fire, but also a good deal of hand-to-hand fighting, with knives, bayonets, and even clubs. Kapitan Kan remarks on the ferocity of the Russians, whom he considers barbarians and savages, noting that they don’t want victory, but revenge, something he and his men cannot fully understand. The picture’s bloody violence against a background of rubble, filth, and damaged statues of Lenin, no doubt reflects the reality of one of the greatest and most important battles of World War II. Billed as the highest-grossing Russian film of all time, it probably appeals powerfully to the people of that nation, reminding them of a history they may have forgotten. After decades of Socialist Realism, when Soviet art concentrated on the class struggle, the corruption of capitalism, the evil of the bourgeoisie, and the nobility of the proletariat, replete with images of the happy Russian worker kissing his tractor, “Stalingrad” provides a healthy ambiguity about its subject: nobody fights for Comrade Stalin or the eventual dictatorship of the proletariat, but for themselves, for the city, and for Katya. Finally, like it or not, it shows that Russians express the same sentimental patriotism of so many Americans.
When it premiered at the 2013 South By Southwest Film Festival, Destin Cretton’s “Short Term 12” enjoyed about as successful a debut as any young director could hope. It generated deafeningly positive buzz before going on to win the festival’s grand-jury award as well as the audience award. Despite such auspicious beginnings, the film mostly flew under the radar of general audiences. Those who saw the film loved it, but without a national theatrical release, opportunities to see it were scarce. Now, thanks to the Dryden Theatre, the film finally gets its Rochester premiere this weekend, and it’s every bit as wonderful as I had hoped. Grace (Brie Larson, “21 Jump Street”) is the 20something supervisor at Short Term 12, a temporary foster care center for at-risk youth. At work, she regularly urges her charges not to bottle up their emotions, to share their feelings, but it’s advice she seems unable to heed herself. She’s in a long-term

relationship with her co-worker Mason (John Gallagher Jr., “The Newsroom”), and despite their closeness, she remains unable to open up to him fully. She cares passionately about the kids in her care, and the film shares her immense empathy for the damaged, but innately decent kids that reside at Short Term 12. Cretton gives his film a loose, observational structure, allowing us to get a sense of the rhythms of the daily lives of these characters, and the film is at its best when it allows us to simply take it all in. A plot does gradually emerge, as a new resident enters the facility, a young girl named Jayden (Kaitlyn Dever). Sarcastic and prone to violent outbursts, Jayden has a variety of defense mechanisms to protect herself from whatever trauma she has faced. Grace relates immediately to the girl, whose situation is far too familiar to Grace. Their connection forces Grace to confront her own demons, which she has been trying to ignore for much too long. Things get a little too tidy in the film’s second half, especially for a film so focused on the messiness of the lives of such damaged people. But by that point I couldn’t have cared less — I was deeply invested in what happened to these characters. Even when things turn somewhat screenwriterly, Cretton shows restraint, always underplaying the big moments and keeping them grounded in an emotional reality. “Short Term 12” was filmed with all the realism of non-fiction, so it comes as no surprise to learn that Cretton has experience working at a group home similar to the one depicted here. The documentary-like naturalism is aided by cinematographer Brett Pawlak’s lovely handheld camerawork, which
favors close-ups, but avoids feeling overly intrusive. The film also benefits from pitchperfect performances. Brie Larson, who for years has been doing interesting work in supporting roles in films like “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” “Don Jon,” and “The Spectacular Now,” is the wounded heart of the film and her performance is among the best of the year. John Gallagher Jr.’s role is even more subtle; he offers unyielding support, but makes it clear that patience does have its limits. As good as Larson is, Gallagher is every bit her equal. They’re also a part of a remarkable ensemble of child actors. These kids aren’t quirky one-liner delivery systems; they are fully developed, complicated individuals. Though most only get a line or two, there is a sense that the camera could have followed any one of them and found a compelling, richly detailed story. Special mention must be made of Kaitlyn Dever’s touching performance as Jayden, whose tough exterior barely covers a deep network of physical and emotional scars, and Keith Stanfield, who plays Marcus, the eldest resident of Short Term 12. The a scene in which Marcus performs a rap song, allowing the normally quiet and reserved boy to express the deep-seated fears and resentments he keeps bottled up, is one of startling emotional power. Perhaps the highest compliment I can give “Short Term 12” is that, in spite of its subject, it is never unbearably depressing. Destin Cretton’s film is ultimately hopeful, delivering an honest and moving portrait of a group of people most of society too often forgets, while paying tribute to the people who dedicate their lives to doing everything within their power to help them.

Originally built for the Rochester City School District as the George Clinton Latta School #38, the property built in 1916 was repurposed into 33 spacious and unique condominiums in 1984.

Mr. Latta was an important and influential contributor to the Charlotte community for most of the 19th century. One of his many successful business ventures was to create a ferry service from Rochester to various ports around Lake Ontario. While our latest ferry endeavor is now long gone, all of the splendors that Charlotte has to offer are easily and quickly accessible; literally minutes away by foot or by bike. From the two assigned parking spaces, you immediately notice the park-like setting of the former school grounds. With picnic tables and post-grills peppered throughout the shaded lawn and a gentle lake breeze, even in winter you can easily imagine the wonderful times that await with family, friends, and neighbors. As you enter the school through one of the secure, former main entrances, you are immediately welcomed into a spacious lobby that serves as a common area shared primarily by five units. Along the walls you’ll find tasteful works of art mixed with posters
depicting the Charlotte area as it was in the past. A spiral staircase leads to a network of interior access ways that lead to, among other things, a large basement community room capable of hosting 150 people and locked storage rooms available for each unit. This rarely available first floor condo introduces its 1,725 square foot floor plan with a wide hallway lined with closets, a hidden laundry room, a modern powder room, and a unique multi-purpose room ideal for storage, reading, or even a children’s play space. A short set of stairs leads to the loft area boasting two spacious bedrooms and an updated, separate full bath. An open area overlooking the downstairs could be used as a roomy den area or even a cozy reading nook. The main floor offers a spacious, contemporary floor plan that features ten foot ceilings with towering windows that flood the living/dining areas with natural light while offering a picturesque view. The abundant galley kitchen features updated wooden cabinets with glass fronts, newer appliances, and an ample walk-in pantry space. Unit 121 at 270 Latta Road is listed at $99,900 with Cathy Chrisley of Nothnagle Realtors. HOA fees are $266 per month.
