A vision for a new mayor
To the next mayor of Rochester: I am the highly mobile, widely coveted 25- to 29-year-old, college-graduate, young professional your city is in desperate competition for. I don’t do things the way my parents did. Remember the house with the picket fence and two cars? F-- that. I’m social to the extreme, and I want to live in a city. I want to LIVE… in a CITY! I want to wake up and hear the buzz of the street. I feed off of it. I want to walk down the block for some coffee and wi-fi. I want to ride my bike to work — every day— because it makes me feel good. If I’m helping the environment too… awesome. I want the freedom to live carfree. That’s not a social statement. It’s a preference. I want choices. I want a choice for dinner and I want a choice in how I get there. Dollar menus don’t impress me. I sure as hell am not impressed with dollar bus fares if that bus is taking me 40 minutes out of my way to get across town. Real cities have transit systems, not bus-only systems. Real cities attract new businesses with smart investments in infrastructure, not cheap parking. I’m full of wild dreams and new ideas that will change the world faster than Facebook. I’m not following the jobs; I create them. Where I go, others follow, and I won’t wait around for your city to catch on. Austin, Dallas, Denver, Minneapolis, Portland, Pittsburgh, Providence, Seattle… they get me. So when you take office and they tell you how perfect Rochester’s transit system is, remember me. When they tell you what this city needs is more parking, remember me. When they tell you it’s not the city’s responsibility to have a vision plan for its own future, remember me. I’ll be gone.

Rich, poor, and the ideal country
In “Isn’t It Rich?” (Urban Journal, March 2), you refer to the aptly-named Charles Blow of the Times, who notes that the US “has the third highest rate of income inequality among advanced economies, behind only Hong Kong and Singapore.” Well, since those two “little tigers” are in East Asia, perhaps your glance may catch sight of what might be your ideal country: North Korea. In that real-life Orwellian nightmare, outside the Kim Jong Il clique everyone is equally starving. No one, on the other hand, starves in Hong Kong or Singapore or, for that matter, in the US, except by choice, like anorexic people. And, as the situation at our porous southern border attests, or the contents of ship containers in West Coast ports at times confirm — we’ll disregard the sight of people in the shark-infested waters of the Florida Straights trying to escape the twin hells of Cuba or Haiti — people go to extraordinary lengths to enter our disgraceful land of inequality. Go figure! Perhaps we need more inequality, not less. Do you not understand, Ms Towler, that this myth of l’égalité, propounded by intellectuals from Rousseau to Pol Pot, has led to the highest piles of corpses since the Mongol armies raided Baghdad and established the Golden Horde empire in Eastern Europe? Inequality is part of the human condition, while the deadly, remorseless logic of equality, pace your supposed good intentions or those of Barack Obama, leads to a gun pointed at your head, the Gulag, and the killing fields of Cambodia. Inevitably! Either in sudden convulsions imposed by the toothless grins of armed, uniformed thugs or step by step by the placid smiles of government bureaucrats. ITALO SAVELLA, GREECE
Go on; leave!
The letter “Socialism and Extinction” (The Mail, March 2) suggests that taxing the wealthy
of New York will only prompt them to leave. I say, “Let them leave” and take Tom Golisano with you! It isn’t taxes that are driving the wealthy out of New York. Many wealthy people and corporations in New York pay no taxes at all (nor, by the way, have they done much to create jobs). It isn’t about taxes. The wealthy will go anywhere and do anything to anyone to grab all the wealth they can from everyone else. If there is profit in bombs and bullets, they will be there. After all the stockbrokers, money changers, and land speculators have left this country, maybe the “too poor to leave” can finally afford a home, a plot of land, and a water buffalo, and then, finally, be able to make a living. I would like to burst the author’s Grand Old Party fantasy and point out that our nation’s government grew the most and went into the deepest debt, with GDP and per-capita income steadily sliding, under Republican administrations, beginning with Ronald Regan. Remember the billions of dollars spent on “Star Wars”? If our 7-figure a year political leaders, corporation owners, bankers, brokers, real-estate agents, etc. don’t want to be patriots, please leave! The rest of us “little people” will be fine. We may even profit by it. CW KASTNER, HENRIETTA
Peter the Terrible
We read about the hearing in Congress, listen to the radio, watch TV, as America is destroyed. The great misnomer, War on Terror, was finally laid to rest after President Barack Obama took office. Now a King named Peter has brought it home from the outside world where it wreaked havoc and could have destroyed us, only to unleash it in Washington. Someone in Washington must explain to Representative King what could result from his procedures. Then he will surely stop what he is doing. BYRNA WEIR, BRIGHTON

ENDORSEMENT | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
For mayor: Tom Richards In the March 29 special election for mayor, Rochester has two experienced, highly qualified candidates — former Mayor Bill Johnson and key Duffyadministration official Tom Richards — and a thought-provoking challenger, the Green Party’s Alex White. Our choice is Tom Richards. This has not been an easy decision. We have enormous respect for Bill Johnson. We endorsed him, repeatedly, for mayor. We urged him to run for county executive and endorsed him when he did. And he served Rochester well as mayor. But we have believed for months — long before Johnson decided to run — that the Duffy administration had embarked on important initiatives that needed to continue. Duffy had a strong team in place when he resigned only a year into his second term. And a key member of that team, corporation counsel Tom Richards, seemed the ideal person to serve for the remainder of the term. Our endorsement is based on more than our concern about continuity, however. Richards is exceptionally qualified to be mayor at this moment in Rochester’s history. The city faces enormous problems, in finances, in economic development, in education. Richards is smart, tough, thoughtful, passionate about the City of Rochester, and an excellent administrator. His experience in business — derided in some quarters — gives him knowledge and a pragmatic approach that is crucial right now. He is experienced in the details of city government — and, significantly, of important initiatives already under way. He is — to a remarkable degree — the right person to head and to lead Rochester at this crucial time. Johnson said initially that he was running because he thought voters needed a choice in the special election. More recently, he has expanded that message, saying he is running to “make amends” for endorsing Bob Duffy in 2005, as his own term as mayor wound down. He mistakenly believed that Duffy would continue the programs of his administration, he says. But the Duffy administration did continue some Johnson initiatives. It kept others but made revisions. (Johnson is particularly concerned — as are some neighborhood leaders — that Duffy abandoned his strong grassroots approach to neighborhood development.) The Duffy administration also ended some Johnson initiatives — most significantly, of course, the ferry. Nobody
He is — to a remarkable degree — the right person to head and to lead Rochester at this crucial time.” could have been sorrier about that than we were. We still believe that a ferry could bring substantial benefits to the Rochester region. And it’s possible that if Johnson had recognized and explained the need for ongoing public financial support, the big ferry could have become a viable operation. Johnson has been blamed unfairly for many of the ferry’s problems. His administration did not create the ferry. When the private owners got in trouble, local business leaders had enough faith in its potential that they urged the administration to try to rescue the project. Johnson’s administration made some serious mistakes, however, including a reliance on shaky business and marketing plans and the $1-ayear, long-term lease on the ferry terminal. While both men recognize that a certain amount of risk-taking is important for cities, particularly in economic development, Richards’ hard-nosed pragmatism would likely have kept us out of those problems. The Johnson administration made great contributions to this city. So has the Duffy administration, particularly in downtown development. In some respects, it’s a shame that the next mayor can’t have the best qualities of both candidates: Richards’ pragmatism and Johnson’s vision and strong neighborhood concern (although we believe Richards is more committed to neighborhoods than Johnson implies). Rochester is also fortunate in that the two are among the most ethical, honorable public servants we have known. This is no small qualification when increasingly, politics in New York is known for its scandals. Regarding Green Party candidate Alex White: White knows much more about city policies and the city’s challenges than “outsider” candidates usually do. And some of his ideas are worth pursuing in some form. We hope he and the Greens continue to press them. But he has nowhere near the knowledge and the experience to run the City of Rochester.

County gets new lobbyist
Republican legislators gave the green light to County Executive Maggie Brooks’ proposal to hire a new lobbyist, Capitol Public Strategies. Democrats voted against the proposal, saying that it’s not a wise use of taxpayer money, given the economic climate. The county will pay Capital Public Strategies $60,000 each year for five years.

Legal lessons for Rochester from Brockport
Bad review for city schools
A consultant’s review gave the Rochester school district an extremely low grade. The standards of teaching are not rigorous, management skills of principals vary, and the human resources department is essentially broken, the report says. Superintendent Jean-Claude Brizard authorized the review, which was conducted by Rachel Curtis, consultant and former assistant superintendent for Boston Public Schools.

The Village of Brockport and the City of Rochester have each faced legal challenges to inspection-related search warrants. Judges recently ruled in Brockport’s favor in its case, and that could have implications beyond the village’s borders. Rochester and Brockport have laws that allow code-enforcement officials to obtain administrative search warrants when landlords won’t consent to rental property inspections. Inspections are required to obtain certificates of occupancy, which are legally required to rent out a residence. The certificates must also be renewed on a regular basis. Both municipalities have faced lawsuits arguing that the laws regarding the search warrants violate constitutional search-andseizure protections. But State Appellate Division justices upheld Brockport’s law. In their decision they said that letting officers apply for the warrants doesn’t violate constitutional probable cause requirements.
City of Rochester Corporation Counsel Jeff Eichner says the court’s decision is good legal precedent for the city’s case. David Ahl, a city landlord who chairs the legal issues committee of a state property owners’ association, says Rochester is being sued for issuing administrative warrants against two properties. A challenge to a warrant for a third property is also possible, he says. Each warrant raised questions, he says, about probable cause. Ahl says the Rochester plaintiffs might have a better shot at winning their cases than the plaintiffs in Brockport. Unlike the Rochester cases, Brockport’s lawsuit occurred before any enforcement actions were taken, Ahl says. A court is more likely to rule that a specific act is unconstitutional, he says, as opposed to a broad law that hasn’t yet been enforced.

Officials at City Hall have already warned the school district not to come to them for financial help with the facilities modernization project. And the district may want to think twice before going to Democratic State Assembly member David Gantt. “It’s not my problem,”Gantt said in a telephone interview from Albany. “I did my job. I did what I was supposed to do.”

4,439 US servicemen and servicewomen, 318 Coalition servicemen and servicewomen, and approximately 99,980 to 109,230 Iraqi civilians have been killed in Iraq from the beginning of the war and occupation to March 14. No American servicemen and servicewomen were reported killed after February 17. IRAQ TOTALS —
There is some debate about what the reimbursable amount would be. Jerome Underwood, the district’s senior director of operations, says the amount would be about 85 cents Willa Powell. FILE PHOTO on the dollar, or 15 percent of the project’s costs. A substantial amount of that money, Underwood says, could be paid through a combination of state funds totaling $16 million, and about $10 million realized in energy savings from the renovations. But Powell says the amount is probably closer to 80 cents on the dollar, or 20 percent of the project’s cost. Though the local share would not be due for several years, Powell says, some of the money would undoubtedly come out of the district’s operating budget. The district could be faced with the choice between keeping teachers in the classroom, Powell says, and the cost of making desperately needed renovations to schools — some that are nearly 100 years old. But the real question, Underwood says, is should the district commit to the project or not? “This is one of those things that we can’t stop in the middle of,” he says.

FMP: Where will the money come from? Concern is growing that the $325-million first phase of the city school district’s facilities modernization program could face financial trouble. A morass of fiscal problems at the state and local levels, say officials say, may threaten the much-celebrated renovation project. The FMP legislation authorizes the Rochester Joint Schools Construction Board to borrow money on behalf of the school district for the construction work. The state would later reimburse the money so the district can re-pay the debt. But the law was written to promote renovations directly linked to classroom instruction. This work receives the highest reimbursement, with other work eligible for less reimbursement or none at all. The nonreimbursable costs are usually referred to as the “local share,” and the city school district is on the hook for that money. The problem is, looking long term, the money for the local share isn’t there, says Rochester school board member Willa Powell. And she says she’s frustrated that no one is addressing the concern even though it’s obvious, since the district is facing an $80-million budget shortfall just for the 2011-2012 school year. “We’re essentially buying a house and buying into a mortgage trusting we can grow into it,” Powell says. “Belief that your income tomorrow is going to be greater than it is today isn’t a good thing.”
Cost of War
The funding shortage, Powell says, is due to the state’s history of making commitments to provide extra funding for “high-need” urban districts, and then reneging on those promises. Superintendent Jean-Claude Brizard acknowledges Powell’s concerns. But he says the project is critically important to the school district and the city. The district has to find the money, he says. “How many times will we get this kind of opportunity?” he says. But officials at City Hall have already warned the district not to come to them for financial help. And the district may want to think twice before going to Democratic State Assembly member David Gantt for help, too. “It’s not my problem,” Gantt said in a telephone interview from Albany. “I did my job. I did what I was supposed to do.” Gantt wrote the FMP legislation. The $325-million first phase is part of a $1-billion, 15-year project. Brizard has more immediate concerns about the project, too. The district and the school board have not been able to reach an agreement on swing space. The space is needed to relocate students until work on their school is completed. “I’m worried someone is going to put the brakes on this because each time we kick the can down the road some more, we risk losing the funding,” Brizard says.

RUMBLE IN THE ROC:
RICHARDS VS. JOHNSON
Tom Richards finished up his explanation of why former Mayor Bob Duffy — Richards was corporation counsel under Duffy — shut down the Fast Ferry. It’s a case he’s probably made a hundred times: continuing money losses, a $40-million debt, a “functionally bankrupt” ferry company. It was then that former Mayor Bill Johnson turned to face his opponent, crossed his arms, and looked Richards right in the eye. “I think that this is probably one of the most disingenuous arguments I’ve ever heard,” Johnson said. And that was just the beginning. Instead of standard interviews, City invited mayoral hopefuls Richards, the
THE FAST FERRY It was clear that Johnson arrived fully armed and eager to defend the project that to some people, rightly or wrongly, has come to define his legacy as mayor. He deflected any attempt to change the subject until he was ready. “I’ve been sitting on this for five years,” he said. The ferry, he said, wasn’t given enough time to succeed. And, he said, the city couldn’t have foreseen the spike in the cost of fuel, engine problems, and lower-thanprojected passenger levels. He conceded, however, that marketing was deficient. And, Johnson said, while Richards and other members of the city’s business community publicly praised the ferry, he was somehow the only person blamed after its failure. It’s true he hoped the ferry would work, Richards said, but the project was losing approximately $1 million a month. And the city had planned to borrow $15 million — on top of the $40 million the ferry company owed, which was guaranteed by the city — to keep the project going. “I’m not sure that some of the people City
MARCH 16-22, 2011
who were involved understood what it meant to default on a $40-million guarantee,” Richards said. But Johnson said there was no threat that that the lenders were going to call the loan. They were partners in the ferry project, he said, and “had a clear, compelling business reason to establish the validity of ferry traffic on the Great Lakes.” (Johnson’s former finance director, Vince Carfagna, agrees with Johnson. There’s no indication that the $40-million loan was going to be called, he says. The city was, in fact, negotiating to borrow the additional $15 million from the same company, Carfagna says.) Johnson also said that Richards publicly supported the ferry and urged people to have patience if it didn’t succeed in the first year. But Richards said there’s also the matter of the 40-year, $1-a-year lease on the terminal building given to the original ferry operators. And there is the long-term lease in Toronto, which required a $250,000 annual payment from the City of Rochester even if the ferry stopped running.
Democratic candidate, and Johnson, who is endorsed by the Working Families and Independence Parties, to have a one-on-one conversation on a broad range of issues. The men challenged each other on the state of Rochester’s neighborhoods, City Hall’s plans for downtown, the failed Renaissance Square project, and, of course, the Fast Ferry. It was a tense, informative, sometimes funny, sometimes openly hostile two hours. (The responses below have been edited for brevity and clarity. And you can find their responses to additional questions, submitted to them by e-mail, on our website, rochestercitynewspaper.com.)
been blamed for running this into the ground. I didn’t run the Fast Ferry. City Council hired an independent operator. When the City of Rochester took over the ferry, it was done open and above board. It was done with the public knowledge and public approval. And before we made our plans public, we spent a month doing due diligence. We went to Toronto. We met with the Port Authority, we met with the mayor of Toronto, we went to Ottawa and met with the provincial leaders. All of the apparent obstacles that CATS (the original operators) had run into, we wanted to resolve those before we decided to go into that venture. We eliminated all of those obstacles. This was a long-term venture. There was a business plan developed for 10 years. The financing was for 20. It was not set up to run and succeed in the first year. What you did, sir, was go against your own advice: Do not jump to hasty conclusions if it loses money in the first year.
issue here was recognizing the fact that the ferry was not going to succeed and had gotten the city into a case of financial extremis that it couldn’t afford
to continue. It’s true that we all hoped it would work. In fact, it would be nice if a ferry came up in the future. But it would have to be much smaller, and it would have to be run by private enterprise so we wouldn’t have the city’s money involved. We were stuck in a situation where we couldn’t go forward, where we had extreme risk. And it didn’t fail once; it failed twice. If we could’ve lost $500,000 a year, it might’ve been a good venture. But we were talking millions and millions of dollars. That’s the difference. I don’t think to this day that everybody understands how bad that situation was. I’m not here to accuse you of doing anything. I’m sorry it failed. I really am.
Johnson took the conversation from the ferry to Midtown, asking Richards the difference between those two projects. The financial risk with the Midtown redevelopment is limited, Richards said, but the ferry could’ve just kept losing money until the project was halted and the ship sold. And if the Paetec project at Midtown failed, Richards said, the city would still have the property. But the original ferry operators were given a 40-year lease on the terminal regardless if that project succeeded or not. The redevelopment of Midtown will have collateral benefits, Richards said. It helps convince people, including other potential developers, he said, that something is happening downtown. But Johnson questioned why the city was willing to take a risk on the Paetec project but not on the ferry and not on Ren Square. And, he said, the city bought Midtown from a private operator — the same way it bought the ferry. And Richards, he said, is not in a position to bring up the $1-a-year terminal lease considering the $1 land-transfer deal City Council did for Christa-Morgan to redevelop Midtown Tower.

I disagree with your formulation. If that were true, what you were saying about the Midtown block, you wouldn’t have been so quick to kill the Renaissance Square deal. The same declining values, the same factors that are forcing the decline in downtown and affecting the Chase Tower, Bausch & Lomb, Frontier, all of those buildings — that same poison spills over from that block. You want patience and understanding. You stood before a forum at the Rochester Downtown Development Corporation and said we need at least 10 years to see the fruition of Midtown. And you were only willing to give 10 days on your watch to the Fast Ferry. In your world, everything’s got to be certain. In our community, the only way we’re going to get out of this free-fall is by willingness to take some risk. The only way we’re going to attract young families is to offer them the amenities that will make them want to live here, even to the extent that taxpayers may have to subsidize some of that for awhile. But in your world, that’s bad. You’re a bottomline guy: it’s all got to end in black ink. Any red ink? No good, no go. You want us to take a risk with the Midtown site. But we didn’t take a risk with Renaissance Square: $23 million of government money up in smoke.
what they will have at the end of that is better than what they had when they started.
We’ll have a completely cleared site ready for development. And we’ll have the garage rebuilt so it can be used. And that is better than what we had before, which was a complex that was 80-percent vacant. The tower had been closed for years. The Bausch & Lomb building is assessed for less than it was built for. And one of the reasons that’s true is because Midtown was derelict and dragging down the property values. It had to be cleared up. And it’s better over time as a clear site than it was before. One of the things I was most concerned about with that ferry arrangement is that it would scare us out of taking risks. The idea, though, is to confine the risk so you know you can pay for it. And then design the transaction so if the people you enter into it with fail, you can get it back.
my point: All economic development is a risk. You want to call my risk-taking a mess, but you got money from the state to demolish and abate Midtown. I heard nothing in there about money to build. I don’t care where the money comes from. You say, “Oh, it comes from the state,” like we don’t pay state taxes. People in this city are going to be on the hook for a project whether it’s paid for by local, county, state, or federal funds.

The aftershocks of the failure of the Renaissance Square project continue. MCC is still without a site for its downtown campus, there was great division in the community over the location and design of the bus station, and the theater component of the project struggles to find money and support. Ren Square also, some say, renewed a rift between county and city government. And the long-troubled block at Main and Clinton will remain troubled, at least for the foreseeable future. Though Duffy said that developers and projects were in the wings, just waiting for Ren Square to be resolved, none have materialized, at least publicly. Who’s to blame for the death of Ren Square? Richards said it’s hard to determine who bares the responsibility. But the city is busy, he said, picking up the pieces: the transit center is in its final design phase — a design that was substantially modified, he said, based on community input. And MCC, Richards said, is committed to remaining downtown. The theater, he said, is another story. No money has been raised to build it, he
said, and it will run an operating deficit no matter what RBTL says. Main and Clinton is a priority, Richards said, but nothing will happen there until the transit center is built and the buses come off Main, which will “open up” the street. Johnson said he would’ve urged City Council to vote in favor of Ren Square. “As long as I’ve been in the city, we’ve been trying to make something happen on that block,” he said. “I can tell you that during my 12 years in office, we exhausted every possibility, to no avail.” There’s no evidence, Johnson said, that either the city or the county was willing to compromise to make the project happen. At least the money spent on Midtown will clear the site, he said. But $23 million was spent on Ren Square, he said, with nothing to show for it.
One of the chief criticisms Johnson has lodged at his successor is that the Duffy administration focused too much on downtown and let the city neighborhoods languish. Johnson said the administration was too heavy-handed when it came to neighborhood planning, shutting residents out of the process. But Richards said what the Duffy administration did was to focus on implementation, so people could see improvements actually happening in the neighborhoods. Johnson bristled at what he took to be an accusation that all his administration did was plan. Anthony Square, Newcroft Park, the Carter Street recreation center, and the Upper Falls shopping center are only a few of his administration’s many accomplishments in the neighborhoods, he said. Richards defended the Duffy administration’s record, as well. Downtown gets a lot of media coverage, he said, which feeds the perception that the neighborhoods are secondary. Eighty percent of the city’s economic development and housing money goes to the neighborhoods, he said. And the

end up with a new, reconfigured MCC. But we’re also going to end up with that block of East Main Street still standing there looking like a part of Saigon. I joined (County Executive) Maggie Brooks in Albany and Washington to lobby for funds for Renaissance Square, so I know how hard it was to raise that money. I don’t think we could just cavalierly let it go away. If it were physically and politically impossible for Brooks and Duffy to come together, they should have called on the people in this community — we used to be able to do this — and got people together. Let’s find a compromise. I saw no evidence that any of that ever happened. And in this current environment, how are we ever going to get that much money? I think we have to go out of our way to make these deals work.
There’s a disagreement here about the level of neighborhood involvement and the way we do it. I don’t accept that we’ve abandoned it. I do accept that we’ve done it differently. Neighbors Building Neighborhoods [a Johnson-era program that encouraged citizen-based planning] worked great in some areas, and other areas it didn’t. That’s true for any program. But some people were very frustrated because they had gone through this long process and nothing had happened. So we felt it was necessary to move from this broader planning process, a lot of which was good, to implementation. We do have a program now, Focused Investment, where we go into individual neighborhoods and go through a process that includes visioning — which is soliciting people’s random ideas for the

neighborhood — then going into a design phase, and eventually into implementation. We need to combine the visioning — what we would love to have — with the practical elements of the market: what’s going to be sustainable here? What can be built, practically speaking? If Bob Duffy was anything, he was out and about. He had Mayor’s Nights Out where he’d go to various neighborhoods. The budget process itself was designed to take citizen input. We had meetings all over the city. When they did the surveys with respect to how Duffy was performing, one of the highest ratings he got was his commitment to the neighborhoods.
didn’t invent Focused Investment. We started that concept. They may have improved on it. I think, to some degree, they narrowed it by saying upfront, “We’re only going to do these four neighborhoods. The rest of the city is going to have to wait.” I think people
money for the transit center and MCC. The money for MCC is still in place, and the transit center has $72 million. Those two projects will be different, and they won’t have as dramatic an impact on that block, I agree with that. Some of it was wasted, no question about it. One of the reasons it was wasted was because they designed the thing three times. So some of that money was gone no matter what we would’ve built over there. But that block, as bad as it looks, is manageable. Midtown was unmanageable. No private entity would ever take Midtown and try to do something with it. We can’t do everything at once. I think if we do Midtown and if MCC goes into the Sibley Building, then we will have made significant improvements in downtown. And at some point in time we would be in a position to have that block redeveloped. One of the reasons it’s derelict is because everything around it is derelict.

are frustrated by that, and I think they feel that they’ve been shut out of the process. What we did through NBN was a process of negotiation and consensus building. Those residents felt empowered, and it took a long time to build up that feeling among them: that they were not wasting their time. ArtWalk is a classic example. That started as nothing more than a street construction plan. And residents got involved, started talking about the assets of the neighborhoods, how they could slow down traffic. Those residents said, “Not only will we bring you ideas, but we will try to develop support for these ideas.” And they went out and they lobbied their state officials to bring in earmarked money for that project. When I listen to this discussion here today and in the past, downtown is pretty much elevated as something that’s apart, above and beyond the rest of the city. Downtown is just one more neighborhood in the City of Rochester. Its interests should not supersede the interests of any other neighborhood. Nor should its interests be subordinated.
Comment on this and our additional coverage online at
The City of Rochester is struggling to close a significant budget deficit in the upcoming fiscal year. The projected figure is upward of $50 million. While police and fire have been exempt from cuts in previous years, Acting Mayor Carlos Carballada has made it clear they cannot be spared this time; the problem is too severe. Richards said he’d use a three-step process to address the problem: assess the situation and the city’s available resources, than find ways to conserve without affecting critical services, and, he said, a tax increase has to be on the table. Johnson agreed that a tax increase may be necessary, and people understand that, he said, if they’re told why and what the money is paying for. He also argued for a countywide fire department.
JOHNSON: A countywide fire department would give the city $50-million plus in relief. I think we need to look at ideas like this. And I think this is something that is not as threatening to suburbanites as talking about consolidating their towns and villages. The outlying suburban areas are having a hard time finding enough volunteers. And we should take the opportunity to restructure our costs. There are things that we
MAINTENANCE OF EFFORT
probably shouldn’t be doing, and I think we need to have a community conversation about that.
RICHARDS: The fire
issue: we agree on that. Everything has got to be on the table. The budgeting, in the past, has started with a whole bunch of things getting exempted from cuts. By the time you finish, there’s very little to touch, and you wind up closing a rec center because the rec center hasn’t got a union, which is not what we want to do here. We’re not going to be able to tax our way out of this problem. Whatever we do there would be relatively small and an attempt to keep the situation from getting worse. With pensions, that’s a problem the State of New York is going to have to help solve. They control it. I think this whole thing has gotten out of control in terms of demonizing people. Of course there are some abuses. There is in any large system. But if you got every single abuse you could think of out of there, you’d still have a problem. The average worker for the City of Rochester is not abusing the system. They’re fairly but modestly paid, and their pensions are not huge. And by the way, we promised it to them.
Former Mayor Duffy took every opportunity he could to criticize the 2007 Maintenance of Effort law, which prevents City Hall from lowering its monetary contribution to the city school district. That number is currently set at $119 million a year. And there has been some news recently in this area: State Assembly member David Gantt says he’s writing legislation to repeal or change the law.
RICHARDS: The MOE is a problem. And this is the year it’ll come home to roost. Think about the city’s budget circumstances. And even though I’m sure we can get that deficit down, this is the year we will do something in the city because we have a MOE. In other words, we may lay off a policeman because we have to give them the MOE. We may close a rec center. The point is, we’re not making a judgment there. That’s being dictated to us. And it doesn’t allow the city to take into consideration the circumstances and what is best. That’s just bad public policy.
The MOE was horrendous. And I think that’s something that ought to be re-examined and remediated, because I think that there’s a way that the school district’s interests could be taken care of without putting a noose around the neck of the city. In 2004, which was another horrendous budget year for us, we put everything on the table. We did not exempt police and fire from budget cuts. And we also took $7 million back from the school district because I said to the superintendent: “You’re getting all kinds
of money out of Albany. You’ve got to help us out here. You’re part of this problem, as well.” Now with the MOE, we could never have that discussion.

MAYORAL CONTROL Mayoral control of the Rochester school district was the big story of 2010, but fell almost completely off the radar when its chief advocate, Bob Duffy, left for Albany. A bill did pass in the State Assembly, but without the support of local Senators Jim Alesi and Joe Robach, both Republicans, the issue hasn’t gone anywhere in the State Senate. And it doesn’t seem likely to. Johnson is against mayoral control, and Richards appears lukewarm at best. Without active lobbying from the next mayor, mayoral control is unlikely to happen, at least in the short term. The good thing about the discussion the community had about mayoral control, Richards said, is that it focused attention on the problems at the school district. The bad thing, he said, is that it poisoned the relationship between City Hall and the district. The two bodies need to get along, Richards said, because their futures are inextricably linked. Johnson said running the schools would be an extraordinary undertaking — too much for City Hall to handle in addition to its traditional duties. He agreed that City Hall and the school district need to establish better collaboration and partnership.
JOHNSON: I don’t
think mayoral control, the way it was designed and the way it happened in other communities, really gets to the core of the problem. I think that we’ve got a more immediate issue now, given the war that both the president of the union and the
interesting thing about mayoral control is that a lot of people in the city
think we already have it. They blame the mayor, because “he’s the mayor.” I supported mayoral control when it came up. And I support it because I felt that it’s dramatically important for us to change the situation at the school district. I saw mayoral control as a way to shake up the system. What I am committed to do is push to improve the relationship with the school district. And I support [city schools Superintendent] Jean-Claude Brizard. I don’t think we should be chasing him out of town. I think that’s a mistake. If we chase people out of town every two years just because we decide we don’t like them, we’re never going to make any progress. I’m sure I don’t agree with everything he does, but that’s not the point. The point is we’ve got to stick with something for awhile, give it a chance to be successful, and the city needs to support it. And if you have to have mayoral control to do it, fine. But I don’t think you necessarily do.
superintendent have declared on each other. And it’s going to be the last man standing. That’s not healthy for this community, and my intention is — even before I’m elected mayor — to try to bring those two people together. They’ve got to cease and desist in the inflammatory rhetoric they’re using against each other. It’s not healthy. It’s not productive. I said to Bob Duffy: “Let me tell you something: I had a person in my office — when I was mayor — whose job was to field complaints. Sixty percent of the calls he got every week were, ‘My child didn’t get on the bus.’ ‘My child had this problem with a teacher.’ Sixty percent of his time was spent referring these calls over to Broad Street (the district’s central office).” I don’t think anybody at City Hall appreciates how running the schools can just disrupt their day-to-day business because of the intensity people have about what goes on with their children. So we need to really keep those two bureaucracies separate. And I think that given the fact we invest $119 million into that enterprise, we need to have more say about how that money is spent than we currently have.
THE DUFFY RECORD
Duffy may be at the state capital, but his ghost is everywhere in Rochester: Midtown was his project, he’s the one who got the mayoral-control ball rolling, some people blame indecisiveness on his part for the collapse of Ren Square, and he was behind Zero Tolerance — a controversial and expensive police crackdown that took effect after two particularly brutal killings in the city. Richards said Zero Tolerance is no longer in effect, but Johnson said the repercussions of the program continue, including heightened tensions with the minority community. The special election, too, is a referendum of sorts on Duffy. Richards was Duffy’s corporation counsel and will undoubtedly be evaluated on the former mayor’s record. Johnson, on the other hand, says he regrets endorsing Duffy — who was police chief under Johnson — and that he wants to roll back many of the changes Duffy made after Johnson left office.
focused and much more disciplined than he is. The other side of it is, in terms of developing enthusiasm, he’s probably better than I am at it. I stand by the Duffy record. I’m proud of it. I think that the priorities that are there, the projects that we’ve started, those are the things I’m going to try to finish. But I think even if Bob Duffy were here today, he would be a different mayor. The circumstances facing the city are significantly different from when he originally took office. One of the things he was most successful at was increasing our aid from the state. And he was able to get the money for Midtown because of his effectiveness in that regard. That’s not where we are today. I don’t care how effective he was, he wouldn’t get those things. He would be faced with a significant set of financial problems that would require us to manage differently. And it would require us to focus and finish much more than we did before. With all due respect to Duffy, I personally think I’m better suited to do that, just because our personalities are different.
RICHARDS: I want to confess upfront that I’m a different personality than Bob Duffy. I am much more 10 City MARCH 16-22, 2011
JOHNSON: He’s acting like Bob Duffy was mayor years ago. He was mayor 60 days ago. Let me make clear there are things on the Duffy record I will not continue. I will not continue mayoral control, I will not continue this ambivalence toward the neighborhoods, I will not continue Zero Tolerance. The residuals of Zero Tolerance are still there; the residuals of hiring and pushing people out on the street before they were property trained. It’s about new ideas. It’s about taking new approaches. The voters have a clear choice. If they want the status quo, they choose Tom Richards. They want change, they choose Bill Johnson.
RICHARDS: Well, I
guess another way of saying that is if you want to go backward, choose Bill. If you want to go forward, choose me.

Alex White, the Green Party candidate for Rochester mayor, says a local-labor requirement and more apprenticeship programs would help lift people out of poverty. Photo by matt deturck
Green Party’s Alex White wants ‘a better Rochester’ Alex White (alexwhiteformayor.com) has the distinction of being the only person on the ballot for mayor who hasn’t already been mayor. So if you’re looking for a fresh face, White says, he’s your only choice. White is a small-business owner and the Green Party candidate for Rochester mayor. He looks like a hybrid of Michael Moore and Bill Gates and claims to be incapable of having a flattering photograph taken. His green scarf — green for the Green Party, with “White for Mayor” stitched in white, of course — is a gift from a supporter who couldn’t afford to give cash. The scarf is a good symbol for White’s campaign. Rochester, he says, needs to build from the ground up. He repeatedly talks about requiring the use of local labor and creating more apprenticeship programs on public construction projects in the city. It would help lift people out of poverty, he says, generate more spending, raise sales-tax revenue, and improve the city’s bottom line. “As a small-business owner, you really want to help me? Have my customers have more money,” he says. “It’s a cyclone that lifts everyone.” And as a small-business owner (he owns Boldo’s Armory on Monroe Avenue), White says that the city’s regulations are a bureaucratic nightmare. He says that among other changes, he wants to streamline the process for obtaining permits and licenses. White also says he would “recognize the primacy of business activity
and not be held hostage by the complaints of nearby homeowners.” White says he wants to create more mixed-use neighborhoods by zoning through “function,” which means situating businesses not by residential and commercial classifications, for example, but by characteristics like hours and car usage. Under function zoning, for example, residential areas might allow businesses with minimal car use and no additional parking requirements from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. That would be a good match for a child day-care center, White says, but not a bar. The zoning change, he says, would create more vibrant, walkable neighborhoods. The biggest issue facing the city is its
$50-million budget deficit. Raising taxes, White says, is not an option. He has a long list of ideas and attaches a budget figure to each one: for example, consolidations with the city school district in the law, human resources, and other departments would save the city about $10 million, he says. White opposes consolidation of the city and county water systems, unless the county comes through with a price approximately 10 times of what the city department grosses every year. “I believe that 50 years from now, water is going to be the Number 1 asset of any community,” he says. “And to jeopardize or trade away an asset that I feel is going continues on page 12

to continue to increase in value I think is ridiculous.” To raise revenue, White says he would — reluctantly — look at things like increasing parking fees or a “small increase” in water fees to improve the city’s aging water system. White says the city will have to reduce its police budget, and he says he’d try to do that without cutting jobs, if possible. The money saved would be invested in recreation services, he says, to extend hours and to station social workers and others at rec centers to help children and families. White is right in line with Rochester Police Chief Jim Sheppard when he talks about a return to community policing. Cops should be out in the neighborhoods, he says, fostering relationships with residents and business owners. “Crime needs to be approached from a holistic level,” he says. “We need to look at the causes, and we need to look at the way we treat crime at the end. We need to look at things like drug treatment and prison rehabilitation as part of the way we reduce crime. And we need to look at youth and find ways in which we can use employment and recreation as ways to give alternatives to crime, because the kids are either bored or poor.” White does not support the city’s Focused
Investment strategy, in which resources are brought together in an intense effort to improve targeted neighborhoods. The program has not improved the city as a whole, he says, and is inherently unfair. He says it’s difficult to justify to residents of the struggling 14621 neighborhood, for example, the use of their tax dollars to improve some other area. White says a better strategy is to concentrate development money on transportation systems. That would link neighborhoods, he says, and create “corridors of development” throughout the city. Rochester could create an intermodal station, he says, and work to get away from the “hub-and-spoke” bus system and build multiple, smaller hubs throughout the city. That would encourage broader development, he says. White proposes a number of ideas related to energy. He wants to create a
public utility in the city to help reduce energy costs for residents and businesses. (Democratic candidate Tom Richards has raised questions about the idea’s feasibility and said at a recent forum that since RG&E is one of the city’s biggest taxpayers.) Although he says it’s not a long-term solution to energy problems, White says that as much as possible, city government should convert its fleet to electric vehicles, 12 City MARCH 16-22, 2011
and there should be a charging station in at least one city parking garage. Although there’s not an overwhelming demand for electric vehicles at the moment, White says, there’s no chance they will ever catch on without the availability of charging stations. White also wants to implement a symbolic ban on hydrofracking in the City of Rochester and to lobby for “the strongest possible protections” for Hemlock and Canadice Lakes and the surrounding land. The city sold the property around the lakes to the state, but still owns the water. “This is our water supply,” he says. “Hydrofracking around that can pollute our city’s water supply.” White suggests using city residents to
rehab vacant houses for resale. The city has approximately 2,800 vacant structures — residential and commercial — and about 200 of those are on the demolition list. Demolition is a complicated, expensive process, and some properties sit vacant for years before they are torn down. Population across the region isn’t growing, however, and Rochester’s population has been declining for years, which is why there is a surplus of housing stock. “We do have a surplus of housing,” White says. “We also have a surplus of homelessness. Perhaps we could put these two together through the Rochester Housing Authority. I believe it’s worth looking into.” White opposes mayoral control of the city
school district, but says as mayor he might encourage voters to oust some current school board members. “I have attended school board meetings,” he says. “They are some of the most dysfunctional groupings that I have ever been privileged to witness.” Many members are dedicated and knowledgeable, White says, but as a whole the board seems unable to work together or compromise. White says he also wants Superintendent Jean-Claude Brizard out. Brizard, he says, has lost the confidence of teachers and staff. His reforms are doomed to failure, White says, because of that lack of support. And White objects to Brizard’s support for charter schools and accuses Brizard of fostering the privatization of public schools. White’s mayoral run seems like a long shot; he faces powerhouse candidates Tom
Richards, the Democratic Party’s candidate, and former mayor Bill Johnson, who is endorsed by the Working Families and Independence Parties.
In addition, some of White’s ideas seem simplistic or unrealistic. For example, while the Rochester school board is polarized, as he says, its members are still able to work together on many issues. The polarization has not brought district business to a complete halt. And there’s no guarantee that new school board members wouldn’t behave in the same way, or worse, than current members. White insists that his proposal to rehab rather than demolish city homes would be cost-neutral, but it would take a significant investment to bring these homes back. Many of them are in deplorable shape: damaged, vandalized, and stripped of everything down to the wires. Many are on small lots and lack driveways, which makes them undesirable to potential buyers. And while White says the city’s Focused Investment program is unfair, the financial noose is tightening at every level of government. The argument could be made that it’s better to target money to the neighborhoods where city officials believe it will do the most good, rather than spreading it out so thinly that it makes no appreciable difference anywhere. In other neighborhoods, the compatibility of business and residential uses is a sore point, and some residents may question White’s insistence that business activity “not be held hostage by the complaints of nearby homeowners.” White’s not alone in arguing for an end to the hub-and-spoke bus system. But since the Rochester Genesee Regional Transportation Authority is in the final design phase for the new Mortimer Street transit center, it doesn’t appear that huband-spoke is going anywhere soon. And
although Rochester’s mayor appoints two members to the transit authority board — and can argue publicly for change — the transit authority controls the system, not the mayor, and the authority continues to support the hub-and-spoke system. All that said, White says his campaign is about more than winning: it’s about creating change. If his advocacy for local labor helps get a local-labor requirement for the transit-center project or the massive city schools renovation project, to cite two examples, he says, that’s a victory. “I believe in democracy so strongly that I believe that multiple people having more discussions can only help us come up with solutions,” White says. And maybe some of the things he’s pushing for, like using LED lighting in the city, will happen sooner rather than later because he’s talking about them. A major difference between White and his two opponents is his lack of experience running a major business or institution. Despite that, White says he’s ready, qualified, and wants to be mayor. And, he says, you can hire experience. “I believe if you want things to be better, I’m the person,” he says. “Previous governmental experience has in many ways gotten us to the place where we’re sitting now. Is Rochester better? I’m talking about new things. I’m talking about the future. I’m talking about a better Rochester for all of us. That’s not what my opponents are talking about.”
The write-in candidate Ann Lewis is the sole write-in candidate for the March 29 special election. Dean Wojtcazak dropped out on Monday. Lewis has a master’s degree in public administration. She’s concerned about the financial waste she says she sees in the city budget, and she is disturbed by the racial and economic inequalities that exist in city neighborhoods. She is also quick to challenge the records of candidates Tom Richards and former Mayor Bill Johnson. “It’s interesting to me that Bill Johnson is complaining about Tom Richards and the Duffy administration, but he helped to create that administration when he endorsed Bob Duffy over Wade Norwood,” Lewis says. The city, Lewis says, needs new blood. The biggest problem facing the city, she says, is lack of revenue. She is not in favor of raising property taxes, but she would explore a commuter tax and a regional tax on fastfood companies. And she says she supports raising personal income tax on New York’s high-income earners. — Tim Louis Macaluso

Stop and smell the Rosey’s [ CHOW HOUND ] BY SUSIE HUME
After 14 years of serving affordable, authentic Italian food, Rosey’s Italian Café became something of an institution for downtown diners, many of whom were saddened earlier this month when they found their lunchtime spot of choice vacant. Fortunately for those regulars (and for the as-of-yet unacquainted), Rosey’s Italian Café has not vanished — it has just relocated. After being unable to come to a new lease agreement with their downtown landlord, Rick and Rosey Vitale immediately began searching for a new space in the city to house their beloved restaurant. Feeling as if they could not find an equivalent place (in terms of space, parking availability and cost) in Rochester itself, the Vitales eventually chose to move the restaurant to their own neighborhood of Penfield, in the space formerly occupied by Rigatoni’s Italian Café. The tried-and-true menu has been kept essentially the same, featuring both Rick and Rosey’s family recipes (Rosey’s parents own another well-known downtown Italian food haven, Mama Rosa, on Norton Street). Some of the restaurant’s most popular choices include lasagna, chicken and eggplant parmesan, manicotti, and gnocchi, as well as appetizers like greens and beans and fried calamari. The new location has also allowed the casual
Italian café to offer dinner hours, something it previously only offered on Fridays and occasional Saturdays in the city (dinner menu selections and prices are the same). “We really miss downtown,” says Rick Vitale. “This was a big move for us after so many years, but we’re really hoping for the best.” Rosey’s Italian Café is located at 2133 Five Mile Line Road in Penfield. Prices range from $6 to $12. It is open Tuesday-Saturday 11 a.m.-9 p.m., Sunday 4 p.m.-8 p.m. and closed on Monday. For more information, call 3855600 or visit roseysitaliancafe.com.
Puerto Rico comes to Maplewood
In the last Chow Hound column, we announced the relocation of Dark Horse Coffee to Village Gate from its former Maplewood location. That spot is now home to El Coqui, a Puerto Rican restaurant helmed by Samantha Merced-Nieves, which is set to hold its grand opening on Friday, March 18. The menu features a wide variety of Puerto Rican foods (recipes that MercedNieves credits to her grandmother), including some familiar options like rice and beans, plantains, and meat empanadillas, as well as some harder-to-find selections like octopus or codfish salad, sancocho (a hearty, traditional Puerto Rican soup), and potato bowls
(mashed potatoes formed into bowls with a choice of meat cooked into the middle). In addition, Merced-Nieves is serving up kidfriendly options like pizza empanadillas. El Coqui is located at 1182 Dewey Ave. Prices range from $3 to $9. It is open Tuesday-Saturday 11 a.m.-8 p.m. For more information, call 458-9828 or visit its Facebook page.
Monroe’s on Monroe
Pittsford’s historic Spring House — built as a hostel and spa for Erie Canal travelers in the late 1820’s — is now home to the aptly named restaurant Monroe’s, which held its grand opening earlier this month. The ItalianAmerican restaurant is situated in the space formerly occupied by Northfield Food and Drink, which closed in late 2009. The owners, Katherine Mott and Kenneth Nozik, also own the bakery-cafe Katherine’s Gourmet Creations, which was formerly located in Bushnell’s Basin, but has now been moved to the basement of the Spring House, below the new restaurant. Monroe’s offers a wide selection of antipasti, salads, paninis, flatbread pizzas, pastas, and entrees. Some notable offerings include chicken panini with arugula, red onions, grana padano (an Italian hard cheese somewhat akin to a mild parmesan), and lemon-parsley aioli; anchovy, Spanish onion, and olive flatbread
What do bobcats and beer have in common? They’ll both be the center of attention on Wednesday, March 23, for the second annual Bobcat Challenge 2.0 between Tap and Mallet (381 Gregory St.) and Lovin’ Cup (300 Park Point Drive). It started last year, when both establishments approached Sly Fox Brewery to create a house brew; Sly Fox obliged and a small team from each venue went down to the brewery’s headquarters in Pennsylvania to help craft their specialty brews. With their respective beers launching within just one day of each other, Tap and Mallet co-owner Joe McBane and Leslie Zinck, Lovin’ Cup coowner and director of marketing and special events, decided to host a “barrel race” at Tap and Mallet, wherein each restaurant tried to rally their troops to drain their keg the quickest. The aforementioned bobcat was the “booby” prize for the losing bar — last year it was Lovin’ Cup — which had to prominently display the taxidermy horror. This year, Lovin’ Cup has the home-field advantage and will be serving up its new brew, TW Fearless Pale Ale, while Tap and Mallet will serve SlyPA No. 2 (a revamped version of last year’s brew). If Lovin’ Cup succeeds this year, “Bob” the bobcat will be moving to Tap and Mallet until next year’s keg race. The race begins promptly at 8 p.m., but those interested in supporting their favorite brew are encouraged to arrive at 7 p.m. so that they can buy drink tickets for the race. Drink tickets cost $3 per 12 oz. pour and are limited to two per person. For more information visit lovincup.com or tapandmallet.com. Do you have a food or restaurant tip for our Chow Hound?

Philharmonic Orchestra, with Music Director Christopher Seaman, will be joined by guest violinist Joshua Bell, in his hands a 1713 Gibson ex Huberman Stradivarius violin with a late 18th Century bow by Francois Tourte.

Bell is a Grammy Award-winning artist, having recorded more than 35 CDs. He has not only played with the New York Philharmonic, he was elected to the group’s Board of Directors in 2010.

Dick Tracy on Easter Sunday [ review ] by frank de blase
Remember when going to a concert was an event? You got your hair done, made a play for a chick completely out of your league, made the dinner plans, the after-party plans, and laid out your outfit in your head a week before? Well, if you’ve checked out any of the recent 70’s Soul Jam concerts that have blown through town, you’ve found yourself smack in the middle of a stylin’ and profilin’ scene. We’re talking gentlemen in suits looking like characters from a Dick Tracy strip on Easter Sunday, sporting arm charms that had been poured into their dresses without anybody saying when. But these are far from simply being look-see affairs; the music is incredible. Saturday night at the Auditorium Theatre, a near-sell-out crowd piled in to hear The Manhattans, The Stylistics, The Delphonics, and Cuba Gooding, Sr. do their thing. As with a lot of these groups, members have come and gone over the years. In the case of The Manhattans, Sonny Bivins is the only original cat from the group’s inception in 1962. Who cares? The group sounded incredible. The harmonies were on the mark, and the moves were as smooth as the members’ electric-blue suits. They killed on hits like “Kiss and Say Goodbye” and “Shining
Star,” frequently bringing the crowd to its feet before bringing it to its knees, street corner a cappella style. Cuba Gooding, Sr. — the one remaining Main Ingredient — wailed through a tight set featuring the group’s 1972 hit “Everybody Plays The Fool,” his voice sounding exactly like it did on the record. The whole bill was outstanding, and even the sound, which can sometimes be a little bottom heavy in the Aud, was aces. Do yourself a solid and check out the Soul Jam the next time it comes through. I’m already laying out my clothes. It was a triple bill at The California Brew Haus later that night with Methanol, The Fallen, and Rainline. I caught the majority of Rainline’s set. The band was tight and punchy and eager to dish out several new numbers. The music is brash and modern melodic rock with the occasional progressive detour and stomp on the accelerator. Instead of digging into the bag to pull out what you’d think were appropriate covers, the boys opted to give the hot ’n’ heavy treatment to Cyndi Lauper and a Flock Of Seagulls. Perhaps they were showing their true colors? (Screw you, I’m not apologizing; that’s some funny stuff right there).

Wednesday, March 16
Do you write from the drums up? West: Yeah, there’s always a drum thought
process right off the bat. It’s about the drums first. We write songs specific to drummers. When we get a new drummer we write to their skills and then the band grows; what they’re good at, we become good at. You all come from metal backgrounds. Why not more metal in the band? West: We’re not good enough to be metal,
Did you set out to be as grunge band per se? West: We definitely decided early on that we
wanted to be a grunge band. We wanted to have indie influences. When we talk about indie influences, we’re talking about early 80’s ones like Dinosaur Jr., Black Flag, stuff from those grunge-founding labels like Sub Pop. Although the three primary members of local band Anchorage Nebraska all have drumming backgrounds, the band cannot keep a steady drummer in its line-up. PHOTO PROVIDED
Rock on, pissed off Anchorage Nebraska w/Bad Kids, Dead Catholics Saturday, March 19 Monty’s Krown, 875 Monroe Ave. 9 p.m. | $3 | 271-7050 [ INTERVIEW ] By Frank De Blase
You can flap your yap about punk’s chaos, emo’s ethos, and grunge’s dirge all you want. But without the right attitude, or any attitude at all for that matter, it all falls short. Anchorage Nebraska — a grungecentric band from our dirty little city along the mighty Genesee — has an attitude. But what is really striking about this band is the nihilism and self-deprecation brewing within its raucous rock ’n’ roll. There’s a genuine recklessness and hopelessness about it. The band rocks on pissed off, and it sounds great. Vocalist-guitarist Dusty West, bassist Matt Tharp, and guitarist Phil Tharp all have drummer and metal backgrounds. But for the last three years metal has just been one of several components tossed in the Anchorage Nebraska mix. Straight-ahead rock ’n’ roll collides with pop hooks, grunge tones, alternative structure, and the myriad influences each member brings along — including that attitude. The band has a new album out, “So What So What?” and is burning up the I-90 blacktop from Albany to Buffalo. Its members sat down with City to shed some light on the music and the attitude. Here’s an edited transcript of what was said. 18 City MARCH 16-22, 2011
CITY: What’s with the name? Dusty West: We made a list of 100 of the
best possible band names ever in existence, or made up. We wanted to pick the best one. Led Zeppelin was taken, so we took No. 2: Anchorage Nebraska. How did the band get started? West: It started with Dusty West demos. I’d
played drums for 15 years and was sick of playing drums, so I started a new band with only drummers. Everybody is a drummer. Do you all switch up? West: We get to trade spots here and there. Tharp: I stay on the bass pretty much, but
when we get a new drummer, since we’re all drummers, it’s easier to show them. It’s ironic; the band is all drummers yet you can’t seem to hold on to a steady drummer. Tharp: That’s the Anchorage curse. West: We don’t want to stop gigging, so we
keep hiring drummers. As long as we have drummers we’ll be able to play. How about hiring another multiinstrumentalist, another utility player? West: No. Tharp: Too much ego to control. I think
there’s a shortage of good drummers for the type of indie, underground, grunge sound we’re trying to go for. To be honest, there are great drummers out there, and they’re usually metal drummers.
Grunge didn’t even exist at that point. West: That’s true. Bands like Dinosaur
Jr. and Sonic Youth were using multiple influences. They were going for that heavy sonic-distortion, crappy-guitar sound and that ended up under the moniker of grunge. We have all these influences but we’re using the tonal range of grunge. What are some other influences Anchorage Nebraska brings in? West: Country and metal. You guys come off more rock ’n’ roll than anything else. West: Grunge or emo or anything like that, it’s
all rock ’n’ roll when you take out all the fluff. What’s unique about this band? West: We’re more pissed than most bands.
Most bands get up there and they’re ready to have a good time. We’re not. We’re ready to be pissed. About what? West: About anything. If it’s not pissed, I can’t
listen to it. Tharp: He broke his guitar last show. West: I smashed it. I hated everyone there. I got pulled over by the cops. There were mostly 40-year-olds there — no offense to 40-year-olds. Tharp: It was the wrong type of 40-year-olds.
How old are you? West: 32 Tharp: And when he turns 40 he’s going to be
even more pissed.

DISCO BE-BOP | The MacPodz
Melding the concepts of the disco-driven “four on the floor” bass beats with fast-tempo improvisational harmonics that classify “be-bop,” the MacPodz are sure to please most any eardrum. Made up of poets, social activists, and beat fanatics, this Ann Arbor quintet features keys, bass, percussion, trumpet, and spoken word. The music sounds a bit like if Charlie Parker had scored “Saturday Night Fever,” and the film was enacted with every character in roller skates instead of platforms. Bring your good vibes and ride the electric slide for a memorable mix of music and performance.

ROCK | Red Hot Chili Pipers
Straight out of Scotland, The Red Hot Chili Pipers have been playing rock music with bagpipes since 2002. They call it bagrock. I know, I know — I laughed my head off when I first heard the term, too. But this shit is good, jack. Often maligned along with the ukulele, banjo, and jaw harp, bagpipes are an acquired taste. These Scots may very well be the instrument’s salvation. Queen, Deep Purple, AC/DC, and everyone in the audience will never be the same. Lochside Celtic shares the bill. Red Hot Chili Pipers play Friday, March 18, 7 p.m. at Main Street Armory, 900 E. Main St. $15-$20. rochestermainstreetrmory.com. — BY FRANK DE BLASE [ Classical ] Composers Sinfonietta.

SPECIAL EVENT | The Emerald Party
In nearly every large to mid-sized city you’ll find a place to experience the burlesque phenomenon. Beautiful, sexy, strong women doing tasteful, creative dance routines whilst showing a little skin. The Roc City Diamonds (pictured) dance company brings flavor and flair and that special something that borders on the line of burlesque. They are hosting a green party that is a bit more rock ‘n’ roll than your traditional Irish holiday celebration. These sassy dames will share the stage with such local acts as The Cheetah Whores, Designer Junkies, and hip-hop violinist Svet. Whether emeralds or diamonds, this is sure to be a stunner in more ways than one.

CLASSICAL | Sa Chen
The 2010-2011 Rochester classical season has been a bounty of gold-medal pianists: Ilya Itin, Leeds International Piano Competition (1996); Olga Kern, VanCliburn International Piano Competition (2001); Jon Nakamatsu, also VanCliburn (1997). Next week, Sa Chen will perform in Rochester, having been a finalist in the Leeds (1996), the Chopin International Piano Competition (2000), and the Van Cliburn (2005). It’s not to define the piano as a sport instrument, where only the Tchaikovsky or the Rachmaninoff 2nd is worthy of City’s preview space. It is to say that you should take advantage of the exceptional talent that is gracing our halls. Born in Chongqing, China, Chen was educated at the Sichaun Conservatory of Music, the Shenzhen School of the Arts, the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and the Hochschule fur Musik und Theater. Chen’s program will include three Scarlatti sonatas, Ravel’s “Gaspard de la nuit,” and three Liszt pieces, including a Ballade and a Hungarian Rhapsody. Sa Chen plays Tuesday, March 22, 8 p.m. at Kilbourn Hall, 26 Gibbs St. $10-$20. 274-1100, esm.rochester.edu. — BY PALOMA A. CAPANNA Elise Hughey, cello.

JAZZ | Stanley Clarke Band, Victor Wooten Band
Bass fans rejoice: a double bill with two of the world’s greatest low riders! Stanley Clarke (pictured) helped revolutionize the electronic bass over three decades ago as a member of Return to Forever. He’s still on top of his game, enough to have won the 2011 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Jazz Album. His record, “The Stanley Clarke Band,” is full of beautiful textural explorations that go well beyond the standard use of the instrument. Wooten, who is well-known for his work with Béla Fleck & The Flecktones, is a brilliant musician with dazzling technique. When he leads his own band, he’s got more room to slap out his distinctive, awe-inspiring solos. The concert takes place Monday, March 21, 8 p.m. at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N.

Pictured, left to right: Amanda Jacobs, Kathleen Suher, Sarah Ioannides, and Elizabeth Roe. The musicians, composers, and conductors agree that there are still many challenges for women in classical music.
Where are the women? 2011 Women in Music Festival Monday, March 21-Friday, March 25 Many different venues FREE | esm.rochester.edu/wmf [ PREVIEW ] BY PALOMA CAPANNA
Next week, the Eastman School of Music will host the 7th Annual Women in Music Festival. Described as “a celebration of women involved in all aspects of music,” the event is free and open to the public, and includes concerts and lectures by women composers like Amanda Jacobs and women-directed groups like Cordancia. (See sidebar for schedule.) Inspired by the event, I interviewed several women and selected four narratives as vignettes of women’s journeys in the field of classical music. While each journey is unique, there are interwoven threads of shared experiences, a desire to get beyond gender labels, and a spirit of collaboration and networking. We are not always a unified force for progress. Many times this season I felt I was the only person asking, “Where are the women among composers and conductors?” But it was actually a man, Arild Remmereit, the incoming music director for the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, who would steal the thunder with last week’s announcement that the RPO’s 2011-2012 season would feature women composers, many of whom he aptly characterizes as “lesser known.” And so women, at least here in Rochester, now face the more challenging questions: will we put in the time to go to these and other concerts to support our fellow women? Will we put in the energy to juggle yet one more activity into our day to do it? And will we spend the money to buy the tickets to fund the organizations that offer us this opportunity to advance? 24 City march 16-22, 2011
Amanda Jacobs, Composer: Jacobs earned her
Bachelor of Music degree in piano performance from Wesleyan College (Macon, Georgia, 1984) and her Master of Music in piano performance and pedagogy from Georgia State University (1988). Jacobs lives in Rochester, and is working on her doctorate in educational psychology through Capella University with an emphasis in music and the arts. “What it basically comes down to is my philosophy that you’re going to compose or you’re not,” says Jacobs, who collaborated with Lindsay Warren Baker to create the music and libretto for “Lily, a Musical Portrait,” based upon Edith Wharton’s 1905 novel, “The House of Mirth.” The first public reading of Lily will be presented on Wednesday, March 23, with the Empire State Lyric Theatre at the Memorial Art Gallery as part of the Women in Music Festival. Jacobs and Baker previously created “Pride & Prejudice, a Musical.” Jacobs credits her education at a women’s college with giving her the confidence to be anything that she wanted to be. “I don’t concentrate on gender because I know that my work goes beyond the obstacle,” she says. Even so, Jacobs describes a gender-awareness moment she encountered during an all-male board meeting in 2008. “On Broadway, there are almost no women orchestrators,” Jacob says. “I had always orchestrated my own work because of my classical training and background. The questioning of whether I was good enough to orchestrate my own work [“Pride & Prejudice”] was preposterous to me.” Jacobs’ advice to other women is, “Surround yourself with people that believe in you and keep making art.” She points to collaborating with women, networking with women, and taking advantage of opportunities created for women. “Eventually, we will meld,” says Jacobs. “We have the opportunities to study. We have the right to vote. I am optimistic about it.”
Kathleen Suher, Oboist: Suher, together with
Pia Liptak, is a co-director of Sinfonietta Cordancia, which gave its first performance in 2010. Suher is principal oboist for the University of Rochester Symphony Orchestra. She earned her Bachelor of Arts from the University of Rochester (1990) and her Juris Doctor from Syracuse University (1993). Suher is also an attorney. She resides in Penfield. When she recently saw RPO guest conductor Sarah Ioannides, Suher was struck by the realization that she had “rarely if ever played under, or even seen, an orchestra conducted by a woman.” She says, “It’s not something I had thought about before, which might seem surprising for a female musician.” Suher thinks of herself as a musician or, more specifically, an oboe player. Suher says, “To me, it feels like it takes something away from the person as a composer or musician to specify that they are a woman. If they are good, they are good.” Cordancia’s participation in this year’s festival came about through networking with women, Suher says, and the festival will provide Suher with the opportunity to rehearse and perform works by guest composer Hilary Tann, including her “Shakkei” and “Walls of Morlais Castle.” “It’s exciting for me to have an actual conversation with a composer,” says Suher. Sarah Ioannides, Conductor: Sarah
Ioannides is music director of the El Paso Symphony Orchestra and Spartanburg Philharmonic Orchestra. She was the only female guest conductor of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra during its 2010-11 season. Ioannides earned her Bachelor of Arts and her Master of Arts in music from Oxford University (1993) and her Masters of Music in orchestral conducting from the Juilliard School (2000). She was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship in 1996. “I have two really, really huge jobs,” says Ioannides. “Both are extremely complicated
for different reasons. One enhances the other to be able to be doing both.” Ioannides was speaking about the jobs of being a conductor with an international, yearround schedule and being a mother of three children under the age of 5. She notes the simple truth that it is only relatively recent for women to be working full-time out of the house, in a way that has been customary for men. She credits having great role models, both female and male, but acknowledges there are few women conductors, particularly at the top. “We haven’t made enough progress to be off the subject of women,” she says. For Ioannides, women conductors and women composers are issues that people need to be consciously aware of, and “a gap that needs to be rectified.” Ioannides tries to program two or three works by women composers per season. “Everybody knows women have as much potential,” says Ioannides. “We have to see this not as a competition, but as a partnership. When one excels, the other excels. There is room for everybody.” Elizabeth Roe, Pianist: Roe earned her
Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from The Juilliard School on full scholarships in 2004 and 2006, respectively. Roe teaches at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts, in addition to performing across the country. Roe performed at the 2010 Canandaigua Lake Music Festival as part of a piano duo with Greg Anderson. Roe starts by saying that being at Smith College means she is “constantly thinking about ways for women to have a voice in any field, including music.” “I feel thankful to be in a field like the arts, where in terms of expectations and what defines an artist, is a little bit more fluid than another field, like business or science or politics,” says Roe. “I haven’t encountered a lot of blatant opposition or resistance, but when
you do see the roster of great conductors or composers, I feel that it is a little bit uneven.” Roe, who last month performed Clara Schumann’s Piano Trio on a program that included work by Clara’s husband, Robert Schumann, noticed gender in the wording of compliments like, “Clara Schuman was such an interesting woman composer” — not just, “such an interesting composer.” And Roe hears it in the compliments paid to her own performances. “They say, ‘You play like a man,’ or ‘Your sound is so big’ — I’ve heard those phrases several times in a way that’s supposed to be complimentary. This is interesting. It almost seems to state that women should just be delicate or poetic,” says Roe. “I am powerful. I go for it.” Roe’s advice is that “any artist or any creative person really needs to tap into the feminine archetype and the more male archetype. It’s part of who we are as humans, to have this duality, and to find ways to bridge it and marry it and transcend who we are.”

SPECIAL EVENT | GardenScape 2011
Though our beloved city is busy oscillating between spewing the remnants of winter at us and dousing the winter-dirty streets with rain, you can escape to an indoor Eden this week. GardenScape, the annual flower and garden show, will transform the Dome Center (2695 E. Henrietta Road) into instaspringtime Thursday, March 17, through Sunday, March 20. “Rock the Garden” is this the theme of this year’s show, produced by the GardenScape Professionals Association, at which you can enjoy beautifully landscaped gardens on display in the main area of the Dome Center, the live landscaping design challenge at 11 a.m. each day, musical performances, seminars, and more than 100 vendors of gardening wares in the adjoining Minett Hall. And for the kids there’s an interactive garden featuring the boulder-filled yard of a prehistoric home, dinosaurs, and a make-and-take project. A special preview party titled “A Taste of Spring” will be held on Wednesday, March 16, 5:30-8 p.m., and will allow guests to stroll the gardens while enjoying live music and refreshments. Tickets are $50 (advance only) and may be purchased online at epilepsy-uny.org; proceeds will benefit the Epilepsy Foundation. Early-bird breakfast tours, which include breakfast and a leisurely viewing the of the gardens with master gardeners as guides, will be offered at 7 a.m. Friday, March 18, and Saturday, March 19, for $25 per ticket. Regular show hours for “Rock the Garden” at GardenScape are Thursday to Saturday 9 a.m.-9 p.m., and Sunday 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Tickets cost $10-$12; children ages 12 and under are admitted free with parents. Purchase tickets at Wegmans locations and online at rochesterflowershow.com. For more information on the show, call 265-9018. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

By now, many of us understand that when it comes to recorded histories, we cannot take anything for granted. History is nearly always penned and presented by the victors (or victorious cultures), who wish to be remembered in the best, most heroic of lights. Even individuals who are sympathetic to a situational underdog 28 City march 16-22, 2011
cannot truly portray, or even clearly see, the culture as it is, without including elements of their own particular motivation. But it is also a difficult matter to entirely disregard the intention of the subject, especially when confronted directly with the depth of expression. So is the case with the opus of photographer Edward Curtis, whose controversial documentation of the vanishing indigenous North American cultures is the focus of a fascinating new exhibit at the University of Rochester’s Rush Rhees Library. “Theatres of Memory” is the project of co-curators Carlie A. Fishgold and Alex B. Marr, students of the UR’s visual culture studies program, with commentary by UR faculty and Rare Books Library staff. “I’m especially interested in how we can see changing temporalities of indigenous communities in their visual production,” says Ph.D student Marr, adding that this project “was a rare and
cultures were on the brink of extinction, in 1904 Edward Curtis traveled from Seattle to New Mexico to begin work for what became his 20-volume opus “The North American Indian,” which sought to document, in photographic images and ethnographic writing, more than 80 ethnic groups residing west of the Mississippi River. Endorsed by President Theodore Roosevelt and financed by J. P. Morgan, the three-decade undertaking resulted in 4,000 text pages, 1,500 bound images, and 720 folio sheets of loose photogravures. Curtis sold subscriptions to libraries and the wealthy, including Hiram Watson Sibley, who donated his copy to the University of Rochester. “Curtis’s photographic practice,” states the curators’ essay, sought “vestiges of ‘traditional’ Indian life to present a picture of pre-contact culture.” But arriving on the scene far too late for this, the photographer orchestrated scenes and spun false realities for his subjects, dressing them up in traditional garb from his trunk (photo pairing reveals the repeated use of certain articles, clothing that was at the time discouraged to hasten assimilation), posing them, and spinning nonexistent realities by omitting evidence of integration. One particular photo is retouched to burn out an alarm clock. In 1982, author Christopher Lyman accused Curtis’s oeuvre of flagrant “imperialist nostalgia,” states the curators’ essay. The first portion of the exhibit, “Deconstructing Stereotypes,” considers Lyman’s critique, with groupings of sepia tone photogravure prints that reveal the artist’s hand in posing the subjects wistfully reflecting or riding away, indicating the departure of their presence in this land. Some “contaminating traces of settler populations,” as the curators call them, remain in the images: beaded leather and exotic piercings preside above calico dresses, and headdresses incorporate Chinese coins, providing evidence of globalized commerce. In other images, warrior-men pose proudly with medallions bearing the images of American presidents, elements that “puncture the purity of Curtis’s vision,” according to the curators’ text. “‘Theatres of Memory’ is significant in that it
contributes to a more current discussion on
the legacy of Edward Curtis,” says Fishgold, “not drawing on the ‘invalidity’ of the work’s staged and altered nature, but instead drawing from the self-representation exercised by Curtis’s Native subjects.” In the second part of the show, the curators ask the viewer to consider, historic authenticity aside, treating the images “as historically embedded performances” consciously enacted by the subjects. Though the individuals presented in the photographs did not truly exist in the way that Curtis meant us to see, viewers may detect an authenticity nevertheless. “What is enacted in these photographs — these ‘theatres of memory’ — is not some imperialist fantasy,” argue the curators, “but rather the desires of indigenous peoples to maintain a diverse set of relationships with the past” by drawing on cultural memories, and defining “the contours of future memories.” “This is a capricious topic, as some of the ancestors of the peoples featured in his work view these images as an integral and collaborative aspect to knowing their cultural past, such as our guest lecturer Joe Horse Capture,” Fishgold says of the individual who led the roundtable discussion at the exhibition’s March 2 opening reception. Joe Horse Capture is the great-great grandson of Horse Capture, one of Curtis’s subjects who is featured in the show, whom Fishgold describes as someone who exhibited “an astoundingly distinct amount of agency in the way he posed for Curtis.” Similarly, in “Upshaw – Apsaroke,” Alexander Upshaw willingly withholds his own personality as he dons Curtis’s costume and poses stoically for the camera, playing a role which the curators call “a willing collaboration with a form of salvage.” Included in the exhibit are display cases of books and more images and anecdotes from the subjects’ descendants about the importance of the photographs as objects of memory, as well as objects bearing Curtis’s images, such as postcards, t-shirts, mugs, and calendars. Both the images of ancestors, held dear by the descendants, and the presence and popularity of the latter group of commercial items, marketed for consumption by white descendants of this land’s invaders, indicate an awkward cultural hunger, a strong urge to possess what was destroyed. The exhibit is presented in conjunction with a six-week-long Humanities Project and series of visiting scholars entitled “The Parallax Effects: Representations of Native North Americans Then and Now,” which explores the ways in which documentaries, photographs, and literature have helped shape the public’s perceptions of Native Americans throughout history. Film screenings and lectures will continue through April 10; for more information, visit rochester.edu/college/humanities.

Special Events ART/LECTURE | “Persepolis: Culture Carved on Stone”
It makes far more sense to celebrate the New Year in the springtime than in the dead of winter, as we do. Nothing about the cold and the dark of January makes me feel fresh; I’d rather greet the New Year, blossoms, buds, and running streams all at once. Pretend that we’re as logical as Persian cultures — they celebrate the New Year with Nowruz, held on the spring equinox — by attending a special event this Saturday, March 19, at the Memorial Art Gallery (500 University Ave.). In addition to an educational slide and video presentation about Nowruz given by Shahin Monshipour, cultural anthropologist and director of the International Culture & Arts Network, you can hear docent Kitty Jospé speak about an ancient “Tribute Bearer” sculpture from the ruins at Persepolis, listen to a presentation on the vernal equinox by astronomer Steve Fentress, and enjoy live traditional music of Iran, Turkey, and Central Asia. At 4 p.m., join a reception featuring Persian tea and sweets, and a “Haftseen” table of artifacts related to the New Year. The event runs 1:30-5 p.m., is free, and includes museum admission. The Creative Workshop will also hold its spring open house 11 a.m.-4 pm that day, which is free and open to the public.

SPECIAL EVENT | Pretty Things Peep Show
Where can you see a mustachioed man willingly snap his tongue in a mouse trap, a buxom little person strut her stuff as well as the big girls, and a lady not only survive the sawed-inhalf act, but emerge from the box nearly nude? In Rochester, of course — but only for one night at Nola’s BBQ (4775 Lake Ave.). On Thursday, March 17, the Pretty Things Peep Show will thrill you twice over with its signature simultaneous sideshow and vintage burlesque act. Ten bucks gets you in the door at 8 p.m., providing that you’re 18 or over, and the show starts at 10. The Pretty Things press release promises you sword swallowing, song and dance, whip-cracking, glass-eating, and “splendiferous specimens of the female form.” The troupe has performed with Motley Crue, Ozzy Osborne, AND Foreigner. Ya heard? And that’s just a few highlights of its 300 shows. Discounts are available for roller-derby members (visit prettythingsproductions.com/RDdiscount.html to sign up).

The sands of Santa Monica [ REVIEW ] by George Grella
“Battle: Los Angeles” (PG-13), directed by Jonathan Liebesman Now playing
Another casualty of the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union, the alien-invasion film, once a staple of science fiction, appears only sporadically these days. Lacking the Red Menace, the form longs for solid subtexts. Way back in 1996 “Independence Day” substituted spectacular special effects and horribly embarrassing acting for anything like intelligent meaning, while the 2006 remake of “The War of the Worlds” added little to the illustrious history of film adaptations of the

works of H. G. Wells. Only “District 9” (2009) extracted some surprising and significant intellectual and emotional content from its weird story of the segregation of beings from another world. Following contemporary fashion, the new invasion flick “Battle: Los Angeles” employs a documentary approach to establish some plausibility, showing numerous news reports of clusters of meteors landing in the waters near the great coastal cities of the world. Soon those reports show a series of devastating attacks emanating from the meteors, actually space ships, blowing up those cities, killing thousands of citizens. In Southern California, under the threat of annihilation, the authorities evacuate the coast, and assuming they can defeat the aliens from the air, resolve to level Santa Monica with a bombing raid and thus destroy the invading forces. A squad of Marines at Camp Pendleton receives orders to rescue a group of civilians hiding in a police station in Santa Monica before the bombs fall, a mission that occupies most

of the length of the film. As soon as that endeavor begins, the picture pretty much abandons the notion of science fiction and settles into the patterns and formulas of another familiar genre, the war movie. The group of Marines displays a contemporary version of Hollywood military diversity, a sort of microcosm, with Hispanics and African Americans (and even an actual African), for example, replacing the usual Italians and Jews, a member from New Jersey instead of the required Brooklynite, but nobody, surprisingly, from Texas. From the beginning one Marine is identified as the youngest and most innocent of the squad, which any veteran of the form knows will seal his doom. To provide some complexity within its simple story, the script establishes a few emotional issues among the group. The most important involves the main character, a staff sergeant on the verge of retiring from the Corps, played by Aaron Eckhart, who bears a heavy burden of guilt and a measure of hostility from the other Marines, because he lost several of his men in an ambush in Iraq. Following the standard pattern, through competent leadership and acts of extreme courage he will of course redeem himself in the eyes of the men and change his mind about retiring. Moving in through an endless series of encounters with the aliens, all of it filmed with a jumpy, hand-held camera, the squad suffers

considerable attrition in their attempt to rescue the civilians and fight their way back to the base. Although they capture a wounded enemy and perform some impromptu vivisection to locate a vulnerable spot, the script otherwise barely confronts any important questions about the origins of the creatures or the technology that enabled them to attack the planet. The beings themselves, featureless bipeds with globular heads and a mechanical kind of articulation, apparently fire weapons very like the guns the Marines employ, nothing at all fancy like, for instance, our old friend the death ray. A scientist on TV new show concludes that the aliens journeyed to Earth for its water, which they use as fuel for their vessels, a statement that constitutes the film’s only gesture toward actual science fiction. Although the tale of brave men fighting their way to safety against great odds through enemy territory enlivens a great many narratives — the best remains Xenophon’s “Anabasis” — the utterly predictable narrative of “Battle: LA” adds nothing to that tradition. As a science-fiction film it hardly bothers with that form’s usual preoccupations; as a war flick it falls far short of such classics as “Battleground” or “The Sands of Iwo Jima.” The movie finally seems like a vehicle for Aaron Eckhart, who speaks throughout in a hoarse whisper and displays a steadfastly tightlipped grimace on his craggy, cleft-chinned, chiseled face, a poor man’s John Wayne.
Whenever a film captures the imaginations (read: wallets) of the American public, the movie studios shift into overdrive as they try to cram a second bolt of lightning into that mercurial little bottle. On occasion, they are successful; “Die Hard” begat “Passenger 57” and “Speed,” for example, and we’ve spent the last 15 years or so up to our eyeballs in rather decent Jane Austen adaptations. But a well can easily run dry, especially when it’s kind of shallow to begin with. Take the teen juggernaut “Twilight,” which told of a lonely young woman who falls in love with a sparkly emo vampire. It’s a modernday fairy tale, so why not plunder an old-school fairy tale for some new inspiration? And quality be damned, by the way; you chumps are paying to see the movie, not to enjoy it. So meet “Red Riding Hood,” whom you only thought you knew.
Amanda Seyfried in “Red Riding Hood.” PHOTO COURTESY WARNER BROS.
Apparently her given name is Valerie (Amanda Seyfried, “Letters to Juliet”), and she lives with her family in a vaguely wintry medieval village that looks like a sugar-dusted Renaissance Faire. (Seriously, I half-expected a camera pan to reveal the turkey-leg booth.) Valerie hints in voiceover at her rebellious streak, made manifest by her secret romantic connection to local bad boy Peter (the surly and boring Shiloh Fernandez). Their plans to run off together are thwarted by her sister, who dies following a vicious attack by the region’s werewolf. Don’t be sad, though; her death is more plot facilitator than family tragedy, allowing Valerie and her parents (Virginia Madsen and Billy Burke, b/k/a Bella’s dad) to bounce back quickly. Besides, Valerie has bigger issues, most notably her involuntary engagement to local rich boy Henry (the kindly and boring Max Irons), whose escalating game of just-whipit-out-already with Peter takes a back seat to the arrival of Father Solomon, werewolf hunter and, as played by the great Gary Oldman, scenery chomper. Solomon brings with him an elephantshaped torture chamber as well as a Rainbow Coalition of guards, many of whom are forced to fight the werewolf when it returns... for Valerie. But not to eat her; the werewolf seems more smitten than hungry, and Valerie’s ability to communicate with the beast causes her fellow villagers to denounce her as a witch before they use her as bait. This, unfortunately, just makes the werewolf ’s offer to whisk Valerie away seem like a pretty good offer. Now remember, unlike the storytime wolf most of us are familiar with, “Red Riding Hood” features a werewolf, meaning that the
beast typically takes human form by day. So who is he? Or she? Director Catherine Hardwicke (she directed the first “Twilight” before being unceremoniously dumped) posits her version as a whodunit, smacking us in the face with brown-eyed herrings at every turn. Maybe it’s Peter; he’s naughty already. Or perhaps it’s the toadying cleric channeled by Lukas Haas, who deserves much better. Or what if Valerie’s grandmother is the werewolf? She’s played by the eternally foxy Julie Christie, putting the “sex” in “sexagenarian” and hopefully cashing a big check. Too bad that Hardwicke is unable to sustain any real interest in the answer, and once screenwriter David Leslie Johnson finally gets to make those famous observations about the size of Granny’s eyes, ears, and teeth, even that seems forced. This is probably the part where I should touch upon the yarn’s welldocumented symbolism, with the bite of a predatory wolf a thinly veiled substitute for sexual penetration and that flowing scarlet cape representing both the onset of female fertility as well as virginity’s end. OK? So that’s done; I’m reluctant to look too deeply into something so flimsy. But kudos to the stunning Seyfried, incidentally; she does the very best she can with the laughably simplistic script (it features many, many dumbed-down speeches explaining why who did what), and her willingness to take the material in earnest might be the only thing that redeems the film. It likely sounded great on paper, with “Red Riding Hood” positioning itself to supplant “Twilight” in the capricious hearts and minds of teenage girls. The problem? No bark, and no bite either.

In line with the best British comedy of recent years, Four Lions takes on an unlikely subject: terrorism. Focusing on the bumbling attempts of four Muslim fundamentalists to wage violent jihad, satirist Chris Morris mocks their absurd incompetence — buying 12 bottles of peroxide disguised as a bearded woman, for example — while also acknowledging the sad, misguided tragedy that underlies their actions.

You Too Can Go To Harvard 1059 Harvard Street Built in 1930, this Colonial Revival house is modestly sized, beautifully restored, and invitingly ready to move into. Its carved front door opens to a tiny, tiled vestibule. The main hall and living room have warm, original wood trim, and golden wood floors run throughout. To one side of the main hall, the narrow living room has a wood-burning fireplace framed by leaded windows. Along one wall, French doors open to a porch that spans the front of the house. The wooden porch swing hints at pleasant summer evenings to come. Across the hall, sliding pocket doors with ornate leaded glass lead to the blue dining room with its white-coffered ceiling, built-in corner cabinet and bay window. The kitchen, crisply painted in grey and white, has sharp stainless steel appliances and an eating nook with corner windows. A powder room with vintage sink and corner medicine cabinet is off the hall. The basement has laundry and workshop areas, and new glass block windows. Upstairs are four bright bedrooms. The master bedroom is graced with a sunny bay window; a smaller bedroom has its own tiny sleeping porch. All have closets. The tastefully remodeled main bath is cheery yellow with a black and white tile floor and new white fixtures. The third floor features a small, wonderful main room with exposed wooden beams and slanting ceilings, ideal for guests
or an office. Also here is a private bathroom with claw-footed tub, and some unfinished attic storage space. The back yard is fully fenced and has a paver patio with a stone retaining wall. Steps lead up to a garden with trees against the high back wall. The houses along Harvard St. back onto what is now Highway 490, but was once the bed of the Erie Canal until 1920. When this house was built, the Rochester Subway was operating in the same location, and had a stop at nearby Colby Street (for a view of this station, go to www.vintageviews.org/vv-tl/ Photos/pages/colby_station.html). 1059 Harvard Street is located among the “ABC streets” of the quiet eastern end of the Park Avenue neighborhood.

New York University arts professor Wafaa Bilal had his camera surgically removed in February — the one that was implanted in the back of his skull in November to record, at 60second intervals, the places he had left behind (beamed to and archived by a museum in Qatar). The camera had been mounted under his skin, braced by three titanium posts, but his body very painfully rejected one of the posts, and his temporary solution is to merely tie the camera to the back of his neck (even though that work-around is unsatisfactory to him because it represents a lesspersonal “commitment” to the art). In the future, he said, communication devices like his will routinely be part of our bodies.
The Entrepreneurial Spirit — Till Krautkraemer’s New York City beverage company MeatWater creates dozens of flavors of water for the upscale market of hearty gourmets who would like their daily salads, or shellfish, or goulash from a bottle instead of from a plate. Among his new flavors introduced in January, according to an AOL News report, were poached salmon salad water and a Caribbean shrimp salad water that can double as a vodka mixer. Old standbys include Peking duck water, tandoori chicken water, bangers ‘n’ mash water, and Krautkraemer’s favorite, German sauerbraten water. — Sell What You Know: In December, a company in eastern Ukraine (a country known for hard drinking) announced a “drinking buddy” service in which, for the equivalent of about $18, it would
supply a barroom companion for the evening, “qualified” to discuss politics, sports, women, etc., and even to offer psychological counseling if appropriate. — Not Your Father’s Scotch: (1) The Panamanian company Scottish Spirits recently introduced a straight Scotch whisky in 12-ounce cans, for a market of mobile drinkers who prefer not to invest in a whole bottle. The international Scotch whisky trade association expressed alarm. (2) At Clive’s, of Victoria, British Columbia, Glenfiddich Scotch whisky is only one ingredient in the signature cocktail “Cold Night In,” which, according to a January New York Times review, combines “molecular mixology” and comfort food. An especially buttery grilled-cheese sandwich is soaked overnight in the Scotch, along with Mt. Gay rum and Lillet Blanc wine. Following a brief freeze to congeal any remaining fat, and double-straining, it is ready to serve -- with a celery stick and other garnishments. — “Vulva Original,” from a German company, VivaEros, is the “scent of a beautiful woman,” reported in Harper’s magazine in August 2010, and selling as a fragrance concentrate for the equivalent of about $35 for a small roll-on container. (Its promotional video is of a lavishly photographed gym scene, with a handsome male, observing a beautiful female working out on a stationary bike, followed afterward by the male’s gently sniffing the seat.) “The female smell of intimacy,” promised VivaEros, “triggers sexual attraction and desire,” which men can address “more intensely during self-stimulation.”
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 37 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Get involved in an unusual event or activity and you will attract lots of attention. Someone looking for a serious relationship will stick close to you. You’ll know instantly whether or not this per son is right for you. Prospects are looking exceptionally good. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Live and learn. The type of partner you meet this week will end up disappointing you. Expect an overrated opinion, coupled with a great storyteller to sweep you off your feet initially. Unfortunately, the truth will not measure up to what you’ve been led to believe.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’ll have more than one partner who interests you this week. As long as you are honest about who you are seeing and what you are looking for, there won’t be a problem. However, if you mislead someone who is truly interested, you aren’t likely to get a second chance. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Brag ging on your part or on the part of the person you are attracted to will not bring you closer together. Listen and question rather than boast about what you have to of fer. Quiet pursuit and passionate innuendos are all it will take to attract true love.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Nothing will stand between you and an adoring partner, mesmerized by your charming and enter taining personality. This is the perfect time to meet someone who can match you on every count spiritually, emotionally, mentally and financially. Pre pare to make a promise. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Get out socialize and stop worrying about find “the one” for the time being. It’s when you aren’t looking that someone will waltz into your life and sweep you off your feet. Have fun with friends and engage in the types of activities you enjoy the most.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The more involved you are with something you feel strongly about or want to reform, the better your chance will be of finding someone who shares your beliefs and values. You need a compatible partner in order to maintain the perfect balance necessary to your emotional well-being. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t feel pressed to find someone or you are likely to be taken advantage of. Work at building a friendship first and slowly work your way into a one-on-one relationship, if it appears that the person you are with is genuine. An insincere gesture is apparent.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Host a party and you will meet someone tagging along with an acquaintance or neighbor. What you have to offer will be out in the open, so focus on what the person who draws you the most has to bring to the table. Instant romance is in the stars. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Nothing will fall into place when it comes to love this week. A misunderstanding will lead to a change of heart or the realization that there are too many obstacles to over come to make a go of it with the person you meet.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Someone from your past is likely to want you back. Set some ground rules before you open up emotionally. The sec ond time around it has to be for all or nothing. If a commitment is not included in the deal, it’s best to take a pass. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You may be tricked into a secret affair. Make sure you know the status of the person you meet before you get too involved to back away. Your work and responsibilities will suffer if you get caught up in a love triangle. Spare your heart and move on.
