Latino Rochester: pride and power City Commissioner Carlos Carballada represents one end of the spectrum of the Rochester area’s rich Hispanic-Latino community: immigrants and their first-generation children, many of whom have attained nearly every measure of success. They’ve become CEO’s, doctors, engineers, attorneys, and politicians — often leaving the city to join the middle class in the suburbs. But a large portion of Rochester’s Latino community still struggles in poverty, often filling low-paying jobs in construction, agriculture, and food service.
Rochester’s second-largest-and-growing minority group has made enormous strides, but some Latinos say the community needs a new crop of leaders who will fight for much-needed improvements, especially in the area of education. But the community is clearly an important factor in the city’s diversity and economic success. The challenge for many Latinos is to move further into mainstream America while retaining their vibrant cultural legacy. Pictured: Melisza Campos, Jackie Ortiz, and Jose Cruz.

Austerity or jobs?
The national mythology about the economy given by the mainstream media can be summarized as a discussion whose terms are “austerity” and ... “austerity.” Not “versus full employment” or “jobs” but how much austerity, when, and for whom. We all need to share in the sacrifice... Riiight! The media choose to forget that during the 30’s Depression Franklin Roosevelt saved capitalists from themselves, in part by applying the Keynesian economics of deficit spending to overcome unemployment. When driven to sufficient levels by World War II, it worked as it was supposed to work. (The part we forgot recently was to pay back the deficits during the boom times. That, of course, would require responsible governance.) Thus the government became the employer of last resort and repaired some crumbling infrastructure. It was goodbye and good riddance to the regressive, extremely counterproductive economics of Hoover and Coolidge. Don’t you wish! Doing its part to ignore history and regress fatally we have, for example, the March 3 Democrat and Chronicle editorial suggesting a truly regressive Simpson-Bowles like “compromise,” i.e. givebacks on Social Security and the federal Med programs (which “reasonable” Democrats need to learn to accept). How is austerity working out for those who have already been force-fed this prescription in the Euro Zone? More jobs or fewer? Increasing debt ratio or decreasing? The news is consistently bad, predictable, and well known. But this is not part of our polite conversation in the media. Why not?
The actual but unmentioned issue is whether to get all austere, or confront unemployment. Which problem is most urgently pressing right now? The “gotta reduce deficits now” argument is dishonest on its face, since by the only significant measure, deficits are going down as a percent of GDP in the US, but will, as in the Euro Zone, become larger as a percent of GDP when we copy the Euro austerity mania. So even though Paul Krugman columns are printed in the New York Times, where is the discussion of his Keynesian economic ideas versus austerity? I want the austerity mongers to have a discussion with Nobel and other economists like Krugman, Joseph Stiglitz, and Richard Eskow, to name several of the widely ignored. Enough echo chamber already. How about an honest conversation and debate? But of course I am dreaming. Conservative scolds have already drowned Keynesian economics in the bathtub by never acknowledging its existence or successful history. As far as I can tell, neither do liberal politicians who are fighting to “save” Social Security. If this is as big a trump card as I believe it is, why not? MIKE CONNELLY, ROCHESTER
The Greens and development
On a Green Party supporter’s comment on city development and the campaign for mayor: “This development would have happened due to market demands regardless”? This is the essence of the Green Party fantasy. What market conditions are you citing? The worst economy since the Great Depression? Declining population and further concentration of poverty? The Green Party loves to compare the tax impact of actual development to the possible tax impact of magical fantasy projects that don’t exist (rather than to the non-revenue producing decay that they replace) without factoring in any of the other benefits of these projects. If Apple moved its corporate headquarters to downtown Rochester, built an architectural wonder on an abandoned
parking lot, but was given tax breaks to do so, (Green mayoral candidate) Alex White would be decrying the move. You don’t compare the deal to a perfect non-existent one; you compare it to the abandoned parking lot. White seems almost completely unaware of the almost generations of divestment from the city. Pretending that private equity is fighting to spend money on urban development and that tax incentives are needless give-aways is frighteningly divorced from reality. It’s cheap, and it attempts to turn complex economics into bumper sticker politics. GOODGOV

‘Whipping Man’s’ a must-see
Thank you, Geva, for yet another winning show. With its well-crafted script, powerful performances, and engaging story, Geva’s newest is “The Whipping Man.” We are season subscribers, but I have to admit I wasn’t sure, given the title, if this would be too violent a story for me. Despite its intensity, however, the play did not show violence as much as help the viewer imagine the resulting pain that damaged these men’s lives. The stormy, crumbling scenery was like a fourth character in setting the haunted mood. The twists in the story, from comic to tragic, left the audience gasping at times. I walked away feeling like I had learned something and can’t stop thinking about it. That’s the sign of a great production. With all the talk about race in Rochester lately, “The Whipping Man” is absolutely a must-see. CATHY ANDERSON, IRONDEQUOIT

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
Missing March Madness In our house, March used to be a great month, the NCAA basketball championship a happy break after slogging through the worst of winter. And as alumni of a Southeastern Conference school, both of us raised in a state where University of Tennessee loyalty bordered on fanaticism, there was a special attraction: even if our men’s basketball team didn’t get past the early rounds, our women’s team always did. Always. And even when Tennessee men didn’t do well, we let March Madness take over our evenings as winter turned to spring. But last year, after reading Taylor Branch’s “The Shame of College Sports” in the Atlantic, I stopped watching NCAA games. And the work of people like the Times’ Joe Nocera and NPR’s Frank Deford has deepened my concern. At too many American colleges and universities, aided and abetted by the NCAA, sports has become something ugly. Winning and money have overshadowed what sports and college should be about. You know about the really big scandal involving Penn State, Jerry Sandusky, and Joe Paterno. This year, as March Madness headed toward the final rounds, Rutgers fired basketball coach Mike Rice after a videotape became public showing Rice shoving players, throwing basketballs at them, and yelling homophobic slurs. Rutgers’ athletic director says when he saw the videotape four months ago, he wanted to fire Rice, but others in the university wanted him kept on and “rehabilitated.” So he was. Rice, whose salary was $700,000, was fined $50,000, but because he finished the season at Rutgers, he earned a $100,000 bonus. Nocera, Deford, and others have reported the numerous small scandals – and the illogical rules, power, and vindictiveness of the NCAA. (Among Nocera’s examples: A University of Connecticut player who was suspended from the team because the NCAA objected to an “improper benefit” that his mother had received. The benefit? A friend had bought an airline ticket for her so she could accompany her son to the schools he was considering attending.) Then there’s the advantage the schools and the NCAA take of “student-athletes”: The players don’t get paid. But the NCAA does. The schools and the coaches do (and some assistant coaches make more than $1 million a year). The NCAA’s take from March Madness in 2011, Branch writes: $771 million: “threequarters of a billion dollars built on the backs of amateurs – on unpaid labor.”
Everybody makes money but the students. And the biggest scandal is the damage done to the system of higher education.
That’s just the start: the NCAA sells DVD’s of past games – years and years afterwards. It sells video games, T-shirts. The athletes whose images are featured get nothing. But the biggest scandal is the damage this is doing to the system of higher education. Journalists reporting on all this tell of promising young athletes being admitted to universities when they are all but illiterate, of “student-athletes” being eased into meaningless courses, of grades being changed to protect their eligibility. Coaches’ pay often dwarfs that of faculty members. Academic programs face cutbacks while sports programs and facilities thrive. And too many schools seem more interested in being known for how their football or basketball team fares than for the quality of education they provide, the research their faculty and students do, the contributions to medicine, literature, science, and economics their alumni make. And there may be no starker example of how sports has corrupted higher education than the University of Kentucky, where basketball coach John Calipari recruits players with the open acknowledgement that they have no intention of finishing college. To keep talented athletes from dropping out of high school, NBA rules bar them from joining the NBA until they’re 19. Calipari recruits them to spend their 18th year helping Kentucky win games. Last year all five starting basketball players left school for the NBA. Three were freshmen. Two were sophomores. What, then, is the purpose of a university? What’s the purpose of college athletics? And, by the way: whatever happened to that quaint old phrase, “It’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you play the game”?

High Falls visitor center closing The Center at High Falls, the museum-gift store-gallery for visitors to the area, will close in June, according to city officials. The center, which was reporting financial losses, may have fallen victim to a change in occupancy and commercial use for many of the buildings in the area. The city once imagined High Falls as a tourist and entertainment draw, but the area became more of an office-apartment location instead.
I-Square construction starts
Developers Mike and Wendy Nolan broke ground on I-Square, a seven-building, mixeduse development in the Town of Irondequoit. Crews are doing utility work at the site this week, says a post on the I-Square website. The project is proceeding after disagreements between the Nolans and the town over a tax incentive agreement, which have since been resolved.

Politicians behaving badly
Two separate bribery cases set the state capital on edge. Senator Malcolm Smith, a Democrat, was arrested and charged for allegedly paying several New York City Republican leaders to support his mayoral candidacy; those leaders were also arrested and charged. Democratic Assembly member Eric Stevenson was also arrested and charged for allegedly accepting money to introduce specific legislation. The New York Post reported that Governor Andrew Cuomo and his aides planned to use the scandals to oust Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver from his leadership position, and that Assembly Majority Leader Joe Morelle was their favorite to replace him. But Cuomo said it’s up to the legislative bodies to select their leaders and he wouldn’t interfere.

College Town’s window problem When Marcia Barry, the City of Rochester’s director of planning and zoning, meets with College Town developers this week, they’ll talk windows. Last month, the city’s zoning board gave College Town, a 16-acre mixed-use development planned for the west side of Mount Hope Avenue between Elmwood Avenue and Crittenden Boulevard, leeway on some zoning requirements. The condition is that developers add “transparency” to the street fronts of the project’s planned grocery store and its hotel.
The hotel would be located on Elmwood, and the grocery would front the newly created Celebration Drive. Celebration would bisect Mount Hope between Elmwood and Crittenden Boulevard. Barry has to give final approval to the project’s site plan and says she’ll work with developers to see if more windows can be added to the first story of the grocery store and hotel. Or if windows aren’t feasible, she says she’ll press them on alternatives like showcases or display space. Prior to last month’s zoning board meeting, College Town’s developers submitted a plan that included
street-level blacked-out windows for the grocery and the hotel. Barry recommended rejecting the plan, so developers revised it to include more windows, she says. Developers added windows to the hotel facade in what would be a conference area, and they added display areas in front of the kitchen space. They also added windows in front of the grocery store, though Barry says there is still room for improvement. Barry says she expects revised designs to be submitted to the city after she talks to developers.

Rochester Mayor Tom Richards wants to keep the city’s Focused Investment program operating in the same four neighborhoods for at least two more years, saying the program needs more time to work. The city started Focused Investment about four years ago, singling out four challenged neighborhoods for intense investment of time and resources: Marketview Heights in the northeast, Beechwood in the southeast, DeweyDriving Park in the northwest, and Jefferson Avenue in the southwest. Federal grant money and other resources have been used to rehab homes, for demolition, and many other efforts. The goal was to see marked improvement in the selected neighborhoods within three to five years. But Richards now says that, despite many gains, it will take longer than expected for the city to realize its objectives. Richards called for the extension following the release of a progress report on the FIS program, put together by the city’s Department of Business and Housing Development. The report says that although the overall health of the neighborhoods seems to be improving, “the distressed nature of these neighborhoods makes it difficult to achieve results quickly.” Through FIS, the report says: rehabs had been completed or are under way at 137 residential and 18 commercial properties,
and a total of 44 vacant structures have been or are going to be demolished. But the neighborhoods continue to suffer from lower property assessments, higher Lovely Warren. crime rates, higher FILE PHOTO rental rates, and higher vacancy rates. City Council President Lovely Warren, who is running for mayor this year, says she supports FIS, but a critical component is missing. The program doesn’t include individualized support for people living in the FIS neighborhoods, such as connecting them to needed services. “We were supposed to do more,” Warren says. “When you’re talking about making the kind of investment we’ve made in these FIS neighborhoods, you have to help people sustain it. You can’t do the improvement and walk away and think that things in the neighborhood are going to change.” City spokesperson Gary Walker says City Council has approved a pilot community building program for Beechwood, and that programs are planned for the other three neighborhoods, as well.

LATINO ROCHESTER: PRIDE AND POWER
COVER STORY | TIM LOUIS MACALUSO
Don’t be too hard on yourself if you don’t remember, but the City of Rochester has already had its first Latino mayor. City Commissioner Carlos Carballada filled the office for a blink-and-you-missed-it period of time in 2011, when everyone was arguing over the legal process to replace former Mayor Bob Duffy. (Duffy won election as lieutenant governor and eventually a special election was set to select his replacement). Carballada says he’s proud of his Spanish and Peruvian heritage, but that he didn’t give the milestone a thought until a reporter brought it up. Though Carballada grew up in a household with deep ethnic roots, assimilation into a largely Anglo-American society was what his mother wanted most for her two sons. She pushed them to speak proper English. “She would say, ‘Work hard today and tomorrow will take care of itself,’” Carballada says. “It’s still the best advice I’ve ever received.” Carballada represents one end of the spectrum of the Rochester area’s rich Hispanic-Latino community: immigrants and their first-generation children who 6 CITY

have attained nearly every measure of success. They’ve become CEO’s, doctors, engineers, attorneys, politicians, and teachers — often leaving the city to join the middle class in the suburbs. But a large portion of Rochester’s Latino community still struggles in poverty: living in crime-ridden neighborhoods, and filling low-paying laborious jobs in agriculture, construction, food service, and housekeeping. For many Latinos, the move to the continental US mirrors the path taken by earlier European immigrants: a journey from humble beginnings in chaotic homelands. And even though some Latinos say Rochester’s second-largest minority group has made enormous strides, others say the community needs new leaders who will inspire and drive much-needed change. Either way, Rochester’s Latino community is clearly a significant factor in the city’s diversity and economic success. But the community’s struggle to move further into mainstream America while retaining its unique cultural identity presents a challenge for young and old. Rochester’s Latino community is obviously not as large as some cities in the Northeast or

Southwest, but its growth reflects a national trend occurring in many urban areas. According to the US Census, the number of Monroe County residents identifying as Latino or Hispanic in 2000 was 39,065 or 5.3 percent of the population. The community not only grew to 54,005 in 2010, but it increased to 7.3 of Monroe County’s total population. Most Rochester-area Latinos, nearly 35,000, live in the city. And the majority, nearly 28,000 according to the 2010 Census, is Puerto Rican. Some arrived on the US

mainland in the late 1800’s, but the migration began in earnest in the 1940’s and continued through the 1990’s, according to Julio Saenz, author of “Images of America-Rochester’s Latino Community.” Rochester school board member Jose Cruz’s family left the island in the 1950’s when he was 18 months old. Before moving the family to Buffalo and then to Rochester, Cruz’s father found work on a Florida farm operated by food giant Campbell. “My story is pretty typical of many, many [Puerto Rican] families who came here at that time,” Cruz says. “We were able to create this hybrid culture where kids like me grew up in two worlds. We’d be having a regular day in school, and then go home and have rice and beans. And never the two shall meet.” Puerto Ricans, who were American citizens by then, were hindered by many of the same challenges faced by other immigrant communities, Cruz says, and self-reliance was akin to survival. “We looked different from everyone else, we ate different foods, and we had different customs,” he says. “[And] there weren’t as many agencies to help people like there are today. There weren’t many
Latino doctors or lawyers, so you really had to develop this matrix of people who could provide these services.” The interdependence within the community grew out of necessity, Cruz says. He says his family was fortunate because his father learned to speak English. “My father had this knack, he was actually very proficient in English,” Cruz says. “So people like business owners and farmers would ask him to help with translation.” The Spanish language is something Latinos have in common regardless of where they are from, Cruz says: language acts as a unique bond. “It’s important to remember that ‘Latino’ is a very broad brush,” he says. “We come from many places and we’re not the same. But one of the things that really helps our communities — whether it’s Puerto Rican, Dominican, Cuban, or one of the Latin American countries — is that we’re all bound by the same language. So you could go to any one particular house, it doesn’t matter where we’ve come from, and we’re able to communicate with each other almost 100 percent of the time.”
“It’s important to remember that ‘Latino’ is a very broad brush.” - Jose Cruz
Rochester City Council member and businesswoman Jacklyn Ortiz was born in
the continental US, but her mother was born in Puerto Rico, and her grandmother was Mexican. She says that the Latino community in Rochester has had several periods of growth, and that the community today is definitely in transition. “At this moment, we’re on the rise again,” Ortiz says. “And it’s not just from a population standpoint; it’s happening from a cultural awareness standpoint, too.” Ortiz says the wider public is much more familiar with Latino foods, customs, music, and artists than it used to be. Rochester school board member Melisza Campos says her mother was the only member of her family who graduated from college. But more first- and second- generation Latinos are earning college degrees, running businesses successfully, and assuming positions of higher responsibility today. “I think our community is progressing economically and politically,” Campos says. Many Latinos organized support for former Mayor Duffy’s election, she says, and the community can become a game-changer when it’s engaged. “I think we have to harness this opportunity we have and make it even more powerful,” she says. “And we can do that by raising our voices where there is an issue.” One extremely sensitive local and national issue for many Latinos is immigration. Immigration reform became a highly contentious political issue during the 2012 presidential election, with Democrats supporting a path to citizenship for the approximately 12

million noncitizens living in the US. The majority are believed to be Latinos, many living here discretely for decades. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said during the campaign that people who are here illegally should voluntarily deport themselves. Romney later conceded that the comment probably alienated many Latino voters. “I think honestly it’s horrendous,” Ortiz says. “How many people in this country can say that they or their families, or however you want to describe it, were here from the beginning? Rarely can anyone say that.” Ortiz and many Latinos say it’s a matter of fairness. Ortiz says she has trouble understanding why millions of Europeans were allowed to come to the US years ago, and when Mexicans and other Latinos come here for the same reasons — searching for a better life — they’re treated differently. “What is the difference?” she asks. “Who are politicians to say, ‘Sorry, the doors are now closed. I got mine. My family is here.’ I don’t care how long you’ve been here and how many generations [of your family] are here, you have no right to say that it was OK for my descendants and family to come here, but yours can’t.”
Former Monroe County Legislator Saul Maneiro, whose family came to Rochester from Puerto Rico by way of Brooklyn, likes to say he’s a “New Yorican.” And he says he’s especially proud that a lot of Puerto Ricans are at the forefront of immigration reform efforts. Maneiro says he’s concerned that earlier groups of people who came to the US seem to have forgotten what that experience was like. “They were once in that position where people distrusted them and there was fear and xenophobia,” he says. “You know there was a certain point when pizza and bagels went from being ethnic cuisine to being on every other corner.” Equally concerning to many Rochester Latinos
is the community’s ongoing struggle against poverty. While it’s true that many Latinos have achieved success in almost every area of the private sector, politics, and academia, some city officials say the Latino community is the Rochester area’s poorest. In a 1989 report, 37 percent of Monroe County’s Latino community lived at or below the poverty line, compared to 32 percent of the AfricanAmerican community, and 7 percent of whites. And according to a 2011 US Census American Community Survey, the situation is still grim. The median family income for
Latinos living in Rochester at that time was about $27,000. More than 1,300 Latinos under age 18 had no health insurance. And more than 5,000 between ages 18 and 64 were not covered. Poverty seems to create more poverty, Maneiro says. And ironically, it’s expensive to be poor, he says. “The cost of things tends to multiply when you’re poor,” he says. “If a person has bad credit, everything becomes more expensive to them. When you have a person with bad credit coupled with low income, their resources are extremely strained.” A major contributing factor to the Latino community’s challenges with poverty, says school board member Campos, is lack of education. When immediate family members have a college education, it changes the trajectory for the next generation, she says. Campos recalls a conversation she had with a group of young Latinas in a city school fifth grade. “I asked them what their goals were,” she says. “They all had the same goals as you would expect from girls that age: going to college, having a great career, getting married, and having a family. When I asked what gets in their way, one young Latina stood up and said, ‘I can’t even do my homework because I’m too busy watching my brother and sister.’” The mother worked nights, so the young girl had to do the cooking, cleaning, and laundry. The young girl is resilient, Campos says, but the distraction from her homework and the lack of educational support at home for all three children put them at risk for a life of poverty. And many parents take their children out of school to return to Puerto Rico to visit family for a week or more, Campos says, not realizing how far it can put their children behind academically. While the graduation rate for students in city schools hovers around 50 percent, it’s even lower for African American and Latino males. A major problem waiting for these students is continues on page 8 rochestercitynewspaper.com

the transformation under way in the US economy, says city schools Superintendent Bolgen Vargas. (Vargas came to the US from the Dominican Republic when he was in his teens.) There was a time when a young person with a limited education could get a decent job, Vargas says, but today even most entry level positions require some math and computer skills.

Those efforts resulted in the introduction of bilingual education into the city school district’s curriculum and the creation of the Ibero-American Action

up. But the Rev. Laurence Tracy is among the community’s most highly regarded figures. For about 50 years, the Roman Catholic priest has worked and lived in what he calls the city’s east-side barrio. The walls of Tracy’s small apartment off North Clinton Avenue near Upper Falls Boulevard are covered with small plaques in both Spanish and English recognizing his community involvement. Tracy says he’s deeply concerned about the city school district’s low graduation rates. He has worked with multiple generations of Latinos who have struggled with poverty, often from cradle to grave. And he attributes some of the problem to a lack of new leadership in the Latino community. “In the 1960’s and 1970’s, we had some charismatic people,” he says. “We don’t have that kind of leadership today.

League. The human service agency remains at the heart of the community. He says the difficulty for many activists and community leaders is that upward mobility sometimes leads to a disconnect from the community. And he includes his own work in the criticism. “What’s hard is not being clinical and detached,” he says. “I challenge myself to be personal and compassionate to a lot of people who are in pain and suffering. You’ve got to remain involved with advocacy. You deal with tragedy by dealing with the structural causes of that tragedy.”

Pittsford Y proposal comes down to cars The high volume of traffic at Pittsford’s Clover Street-Jefferson Road intersection is a sensitive issue for nearby residents. The intersection, which brings together two heavily traveled state roads, was last in the public eye several years ago when the state Department of Transportation expanded the intersection to address its above-average rate of collisions. DOT representatives say that at least anecdotally, conditions have improved. But the intersection and its heavy traffic volumes are getting attention once again, this time in the context of a proposed YMCA building. The YMCA of Greater Rochester wants to build a 90,000 square foot to 130,000 square foot facility on the northwest corner of the Jefferson-Clover intersection. The facility would be the new home for the Southeast YMCA, which is currently located on East Jefferson Road just outside of the Village of Pittsford. The property is zoned to allow up to 180,000 square feet of office space, but YMCA representatives are asking the Town of Pittsford to add an allowed use. YMCA officials declined comment on this story. “We will refrain from providing any comment regarding this matter until the Pittsford Town Board acts on our application and our board of directors has an opportunity to review it and make a decision,” wrote Jennifer Lesinski, the organization’s vice president for marketing and mission advancement, in an e-mail last week. The Town Board has delayed its vote on the Y’s request. Board members wanted time to
consider public comments, says Pittsford Supervisor Sandra Zutes, and to examine the project’s potential impact on traffic. The Southeast YMCA draws users from Pittsford and the surrounding communities.

Port work should begin this fall City of Rochester officials learned the hard way that Rochesterians don’t care to go to the lake in the off-season. Pier 45, the city-subsidized restaurant at the terminal building, had to stop operating in the winter because of steep financial losses. So what makes officials believe that they can transform the port from a summer spot to a year-round destination, as they plan to do with a massive project that includes a marina, public promenade, housing, and possibly stores, offices, and restaurants? Mark Gregor, who is managing the port redevelopment for the city, says
getting Rochesterians to think of the port area as something more than a fairweather friend will always be a challenge. He says the key will be in the services and amenities the port offers. “If we start to see development proposals that include year-round uses from a retail and commercial standpoint, that’s kind of what we’re looking for,” Gregor says. The 30-acre project is a mix of public and private investment. The city expects to start work on its share, a $30 million marina plan that could eventually include 157 slips, sometime after Labor
Day this year. The marina would be built in two phases and include, in the first phase, 30 slips for “transient” boaters — people who need a slip on a temporary basis. Visitors to the port area will probably see some activity this summer, Gregor says, but nothing that will disrupt use of the lake or the beach. RG&E will be doing work in the area, he says, and the city may start removing some fencing, light poles, and other features. The other part of the project is three areas of private, mixed-use development. Gregor says there would be between 280
to 430 housing units when the site is fully developed over a period of several years. “We think we’re probably creating a market that really doesn’t exist too much on Lake Ontario,” Gregor says. “And that’s new market-rate housing associated with a marina or very close to Lake Ontario.” The goal, he says, is to create a destination for the boating community, as well as providing a new housing and living option for people who are attracted to city living but want a more resort, smaller-town setting.

Until cloning becomes more affordable, I can’t be everywhere at once. That’s why I rely upon a stealthy network of well-placed informants for food intel, along with intriguing tidbits submitted by hungry readers like you. But reporting on the recent avalanche of new restaurants has left little room for me to empty the ol’ tip jar here at Chow Hound HQ, so this week, let’s stuff your face with facts. First, though, a quick snack at the Penfield Pour House, which opened February 28 at 1665 Penfield Road, settling into the building that formerly housed J.G. Crummers. All the televisions give the Pour House a sportsbar feel, but on a recent visit the place was also packed with families happily chowing down at that intersection where bar food meets comfort food. Think housemade pizza logs, peel-and-eat shrimp, and pot roast, along with salads, sandwiches, pasta, and a few daily specials. There are big burgers, too, and as someone who loves bacon but not its inevitable flavor domination, I totally appreciated the Pour House’s signature burger, topped with a subtle but delicious grilled bacon and cabbage hash. Call 264-1665 for
more info, or do some advance work at the Pour House’s Facebook page. Palmer Food Services, Rochester’s oldest family-owned-and-operated business, is once again celebrating our dining scene with its Savor Local Restaurants promotion, going down this year April 18-28. What this means is that dozens and dozens (and dozens) of eateries will offer special deals over those 11 days, including places like Bad Apples Bistro, Nathan’s Soup & Salad, Six50 Black Oven Cooking, Castaways at the Lake, and the Marshall Street Bar & Grill. The list of participating restaurants truly is massive; check it out at savorlocalrestaurants.com. Park Avenue’s Café CiBon detours from its usual Italian flavors to throw a “Springtime in Paris” wine dinner on Monday, April 15, featuring Chef Ashley Swan Abramson’s take on classic French dishes like vichyssoise, escargot, spring lamb stew, and crème brûlée. The $75 price includes four courses plus dessert, along with wine pairings. Call 4612960 to make reservations, and take a gander at the full menu on CiBon’s Facebook page. The word on the street is that the wildly popular Food Truck Rodeo will return to
the Rochester Public Market on Wednesday, May 29, 5-8 p.m., with installments planned through August on the last Wednesday of each summer month. There will be live music and a fleet of mobile food vendors, and if past rodeos are any indication, everyone you’ve ever met will likely be in attendance. Get more details at the Public Market website, cityofrochester.gov/marketevents. Westside pizza mecca Fiamma, 1308 Buffalo Road, has expanded its hours to include weekend brunch and lunch, as well as dinner service on Sundays. Call 270-4683 for more information, or visit fiammarochester.com. Nirupama and Rahul Laroia’s Amaya Bar & Grill, 1900 S. Clinton Ave., is spicing things up with new menu items courtesy of Manhattanbased chef/consultant Tuhin Dutta, who brings to the table a knowledge of the incredible diversity of flavors found on the Indian subcontinent. The debuting dishes include Poppy Ka Seekh, a vegetarian kebab with a poppy-seed crust, and braised lamb shanks done Awadhi style; check out amayabarandgrill.com to learn more, or call 241-3223. The Rochester Winos are hosting a light wine-and-food pairing at Banzai
Sushi & Cocktail Bar, 682 South Ave., on Wednesday, April 24. Tickets are $30; pick ‘em up at rochesterwinos.com. Looks like now might be the time for a move to East Rochester: Good Smoke BBQ, 326 W. Commercial St., East Rochester, is now doing weekend delivery within a three-mile radius of the restaurant. Newly expanded menu, too; visit goodsmokebbq. com or call 203-1576. Wanna learn something new? Highlights of the spring schedule for classes at the Culinary Center at Vella include both artisan cheese and sausage making, as well as Mexican-style food with John and Jeana Roth from John’s Tex-Mex. Call 421-9362 or visit vellaculinarycenter.com to see what else Vella has in store. Oh, and make sure to check out the lineup at the new Rochester Brainery in Village Gate on Goodman Street; upcoming classes include “Get Hip with the Dip” on Monday, April 29, and “Brewing Methods: Tea” on Tuesday, April 30. Rochester Brainery is also teaming up with Lento for Third Wednesdays, featuring culinary instruction followed by a meal; the theme for April 17 is pasta. Visit rochesterbrainery. com for more info, or call 730-7034. Just in time for Finger Lakes road-trip season, Il Posto Bistro & Wine Bar, from the former owners of Bacco’s on Park Ave., is now open at 137 S. Main St. in Canandaigua. The Italian-influenced menu encompasses a variety of starters, salads, pizza, and pasta dishes, plus unexpected entrées like lamb tagine. Call 905-0535 or visit Il Posto’s Facebook page for more details. Located at 3177 Latta Road, Soho Yogurt Café is the newest addition to this city’s growing roster of self-serve froyo spots. Besides an array of frozen treats and toppings, Soho also serves coffee drinks, tea, and baked goods, with gluten-free options available. To learn more, visit sohoyogurtcafe.com or call 225-0786. There have been a flurry of restaurant closings in the past couple weeks: Eros Restaurant & Bar, 37 Charlotte St.; Baked & Carved, inside Salinger’s at 107 East Ave.; Thai Time Cuisine, which opened this past November at 2171 W Henrietta Road; and LaRosa’s Italian Kitchen + Bar, 800 Pittsford-Victor Road, which closed along with the Brookwood Inn.

in the fall of 2007, AudioInFlux has since evolved into an exhaustive — and exhausting — live concert experience. This Rochester quintet is one of the most aptly tagged troupes around.

The group originally made its name as a four piece, with occasional help from a formidable horn section, before adding MC Marcus Mdotcoop, the last brick in an impressive funk fortress.

[ ALTERNATIVE ] San Francisco’s Deerhoof has been at it since the mid-90’s, crafting its unique noise-pop over the course of multiple albums and singles, with numerous compilations and one-off tracks littered throughout. The foursome remains democratic, shifting attention equally amongst its parts. Despite the equality in the ranks, what most often stands out is the vocal stylings of lead singer Satomi Matsuzaki. With her lilting, child-like delivery of lyrics and wordless choruses both nonsensical and charmingly coy, you may forget something far more mature is unfolding. — BY DAVE LABARGE

In an attempt to see Methanol’s extension project, The Atomic Swamis, I stumbled upon Buffalo bar-room heavyweights The Heavenly Chillbillies instead. I landed at Sticky Lips Juke Joint on Friday as the band was plowing through Dave Alvin’s tribute to Hank I in “Long White Cadillac.” So naturally I warmed to these guys in a hurry as I slammed back a couple of chocolate milks. The band hit heavy on the blues without overdoing it, and stuck close to blues-heavy rock with a spicy dash of the South like a punch in the mouth. Next I hustled over to Lovin’ Cup to catch This Life wind down its set, which was reminiscent of neon-free alternative bands like The Modern Lovers. Bogs Visionary Orchestra came out next and played like a four-man carnival full of ironic lyrical and musical quirks. The bearded Bogs led the parade on guitar and slide banjo (you heard me, slide banjo) in a suit that featured as many colors as his musical palette. He copped the stance of Zappa (or was it Beefheart?) playing the part of a barker pitching the ballyhoo on the midway.

It was Tin Pan Alley on Easter Sunday. It was country-ish twang on account of the rhythmic 2/4, it was klezmer-esque on account of its accelerated percussion and groove, and it was just straight-up out of sight. I hung out and hung on every word. GZA couldn’t be bothered to show up for his Water Street show Saturday night, and the rumor is he played a whopping 10 minutes the night before. But there was zero pretense on the club side as The Meat Puppets played a fat and sonically soaring set that frequently detoured into monstrous guitar melees, especially on the excellent and extended free-fall free-for-all on “Lake of Fire” and the set-closing “Backwater.” Making the Water Street scene a little late caused me to miss the mellow indie shot-in-the-arm from The World Takes, a cool new band from Philadelphia that features DJ Bonebrake of the seminal L.A. punk band, and one of my all-time faves, X. Bonebrake was floating about and stopped to chat as I made a serious effort to not sound like a squealing bobby soxer. What a great night, what a cool dude.

While driving to Petco the other day, I shoved the Ginger Faye Bakers’ boss disc, “Feast,” into my dashboard, cranked the volume, and did a double take. I could’ve sworn I heard the ghost of Ron Asheton haunt the speakers amidst this Rochester band’s heavy jam. The Ginger Faye Bakers rock harder than a lot of bands that consider themselves heavy in the first place, aligning itself with breakthrough and exploratory artists like Pavement, Wilco, and The Flaming Lips. So maybe heavy isn’t the right word. Let’s swap it out and say intense. The band — Nate Baker, guitar/vocals; Tim Sadue, bass; and Billy Martin, drums — has been burning with melodic intensity since 2009. Both Baker and Sadue grew up outside Watertown, a “cultural and economical armpit,” according to Baker. “There’s nothing going on. People there fuck and fight and drink and that’s about it,” Baker says. Amidst all the fornicating, fisticuffs, and fluid intake, the boys found
themselves surrounded by musicians. “It seemed that all the friends we had played in bands,” Baker says. “Which, for a small town, is kind of weird.” After college, Baker and Sadue both landed in Rochester. Baker initially lent guitar work to the indie-leaning group Cavalcade, “but it really wasn’t my thing,” he says. It was around this time in 2009 that he and Sadue began playing and writing, creating what would be The Ginger Faye Bakers. Drums — or more specifically, drummers — were a bit of an issue. What is it with drummers? “One dude was a student and he was gone at the end of May,” Baker says. “Another was a lost soul and he just decided to move to Alaska.” Finally, along came Martin. “Billy’s the best drummer we’ve played with,” Baker says. “In terms of the band’s sound, it’s gelled more, the songs have become more focused. The feeling before was just a grab bag of songs. Before I’d write whatever, and we’d do it. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn’t.” The Bakers’ live shows are a constant and
consistent cataclysm of tones and beats that give a heavyweight punch on flyweight legs. This is where Baker cuts loose. The studio, however, is it a bit daunting for the group — especially when it comes to singing. “It was pretty intimidating for me, because I’m a little self-conscious at times,”
says Baker. “You’ve got to be in the right place to do it. It’s easier to sit in my basement for three days when no one’s around. Say, ‘Let’s do this,’ and wail it out, scream it out, instead of people looking at you. ‘Let’s do it again, that wasn’t quite right.’ It’s a weird dichotomy. I think it’s because of the pressures. ‘OK, this is it. This is what everyone’s going to hear, documented for the rest of our lives. It’s going to last forever.’” Forever didn’t take long in the studio, though. The band had done its homework and banged out “Feast” over the course of a weekend at More Sound Studio in Syracuse. “We did the whole record in two days,” says Baker. “Everything was rehearsed and had been demoed, so it wasn’t that much of a stretch. We tracked it all — bass, guitar, drums — live. Prior to that everything we’d done was in my basement. It was the first time I’d been in a real studio.” Though it took relatively no time to produce, it took a while before Baker could comfortably sit down and enjoy it. “Upon reflection, I love it,” he says. “I spent a whole three weeks before I listened to it again.” It’s definitely good enough for forever — or at least for the next generation. “I’d like to have my daughter pull it out and take it to show and tell,” says Baker. “And maybe she’ll turn on some other kids. ‘Wow, your dad’s in a band? Wow, you have a record. What’s that?’”

FOLK/ROCK | SOUNDRABBIT
BROADWAY/CLASSICAL | LOTTE LENYA COMPETITION
Sound ExChange is a group based out of the Eastman School of Music that explores alternative ways of presenting tunes to audiences by re-imagining the traditional concert experience. This program is designed to transform ARTISANworks into an interactive concert hall. You can take Sound ExChange out of the theater, but don’t expect to take the theater out of Sound ExChange. Creating your own music through a family-dinner-style arrangement of music by color, and original compositions set to sign language, are among the presentations scheduled to take place in the venue’s immersive galleries.
Shortly after the group’s formation in 2007, SoundRabbit was awarded “Best Pop/Rock Release by a New Band” by the Mile High Music Store in Denver for its debut album, “This Room Becomes a Crowd.” The buzz continued to grow around the Boulder band and its fusion of folk, jazz, rock, and world music as it landed supporting gigs for acts such as The Avett Brothers and TV on the Radio in September 2008. Aside from being heralded for its ability to blend a multitude of musical styles, the band is also known for its Backstage Community program which, with the help of fans, has made hefty donations to charity organizations like the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless.
Find your way over to the Eastman School of Music this weekend for the 15th Annual International Lotte Lenya Competition for the rising stars of musical theater. The 24 semi-finalists who auditioned in New York City in midMarch have now been narrowed down to 12 finalists. Hailing from Ireland, Australia, China, and the United States, these actor-singers have credentials ranging from roles on Broadway to the Metropolitan Opera House. They will compete for top prizes of $15,000, $10,000, and $7,500. The competition is sponsored by the Kurt Weill Foundation for Music, Inc., which promotes an understanding of his life and work, as well as the career of his wife, actress-singer Lotte Lenya (pictured).

Anyone who heard the Sultans of String at one of the group’s high-energy performances at last year’s Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival can easily understand why the group is one of the hottest on the Canadian world music/folk scene. Spanish Flamenco, French Manouche, Arabic folk, and gypsy jazz are just some of global strains that merge seamlessly into the Sultans’ unique sound. And talk about cranking it up a notch: four strings are never enough for leader/violinist Chris McKholl. His fiddle has six.

Boname Family Benefit Concert: The Weight We Carry w/Tugboat, Sports, and Alberto Alaska. Bug Jar, 219 Monroe
GROUP AND PRIVATE LESSONS FOR ALL SKILL LEVELS My first dose of Pittsburgh’s Instead of Sleeping was the band’s song “Two Chords,” which is made of, you guessed it, two chords (Am and C, to be exact). Beneath the soft intensity of the quartet’s swirling dynamic — and plenty more chords — is a tantrum in waiting, a bristling urgency that aptly suits its neo-folk leanings. Instead of wasting its time thinking up a name that begins with “The” and ends with the letter “S,” Instead of Sleeping has expertly mastered a multi-instrumental approach, including two drum sets, to blow its sound beyond limitations and expectations. A good time, for sure. Silverfish, Alberto Alaska, The September Campaign, & There I Say is Lightning also appear.

Dolfish — one Max Sollisch — is quirky in his astute observations of the otherwise mundane. His delivery is hysterically deadpan, and his haphazard strokes across distorted strings are appropriate and somewhat epic and basically just really freakin’ cool.

A healthy helping of bad news “Eat It: Artists Explore Food & Consumption” THROUGH MAY 12 ROCHESTER CONTEMPORARY ART CENTER, 137 EAST AVE. 461-2222, ROCHESTERCONTEMPORARY.ORG WEDNESDAY-SUNDAY 1-5 P.M. | $1 [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY
During the Industrial Revolution, we moved systematically away from traditional, deliberate ways of feeding ourselves. And as this basic element of survival slipped from ours into bureaucratic hands, we became less reliant on our communities for genuine needs, and our relations grew brittle for lack of practice. There are attempts to reverse this, but we are mostly isolated, rabid consumers, unaware for the most part of where our goods come from, what goes into making them, and under what conditions they are created. The new show at Rochester Contemporary showcases contemporary artists who address these issues through diverse methods and media. At the front of the gallery space hang several large, colorful prints from the “Garden of Eden” series by Ontario, Canada-based photographer Andrzej Maciejewski, whose opulent images of food allude to Dutch Master painters both in subject matter and aesthetic. These altar-like, lush wonderlands of ripe fruit, legumes, and simple, sturdy tableware glow softly as they emerge from 20 CITY APRIL 10-16, 2013
obscure backgrounds, marked here and there with the ubiquitous round stickers that name dubious, exotic origins. The works speak at once of our detachment from those origins and the beauty and goodness of real food. The fact that we even need a photo session to point out the dignity involved in accepting help is a crying shame. But here we have Rochester-based Brady Dillsworth, a seasoned photographer who has turned his focus on the crucial issue of food security in Rochester. The artist teamed up with Foodlink for its capital campaign, putting faces and stories to the beneficiaries of the Rochester-based hunger-relief organization. Dillsworth visited Foodlink partner Calvary St. Andrews on Averill Street to create portraits of families and individuals who are struggling with food shortages. Each subject stands proudly, presenting bags and mini-carts full of needed goods. Some are working hard to support families through unexpected hard times. One single man simply holds a carton of eggs and a pineapple, taking no more than he needs to supplement his menu, and trusting that the assistance will remain. Some people being helped also volunteer there. The subjects were enthusiastic about sharing their stories and ensuring that supporters know they are making a huge difference, says Dillsworth. Other images show families enjoying the autumnal outdoors at the Foodlink farm stand on Conkey Avenue, which for the past few years has offered fresh, real food to residents who don’t otherwise have access to produce.
In the alcove at the rear of the gallery, a video
by New York artists Stefani Bardin and Brooke Singer, collaborating as “The Counter Kitchen,” underscores our pitiful understanding of food ingredients and chemicals. In “Market Research,” people on the street respond to the challenge to pronounce the ingredients of foods we eat as they are listed on the labels. Baffling chemical names overwhelm the straight-forwardsounding ingredients, and confounded faces are amused, embarrassed, or startled. One of the lingering questions is what the U.S. Food and Drug Administration means by “modified.” Perfectly paired with the previous video and sharing the space is “Commodity Cropism,” another work by Bardin in which a pair of hands shed the natural wrappers of various foods to reveal embedded images of the products of which they are a part of in a modified form. Viewers gain an idea of the vast collection of names soy, sugars, and corn hide under, and learn a bit about modified foods that are subsidized to be produced at alarming rates, tinkered with in countless ways, and slipped into our out-of-balance diets. If you’re grossed out by the playful works of Geneva, New York-based artist Christine Chin, which showcase imagined hybrids of inanimate objects and perfected biological elements, look into the disturbing, long history of humans tinkering with the life forms that we consume. This exhibit features works from Chin’s current project, “The Sentient Kitchen.” Countless creatives have envisioned the future of humanity aided (or tormented) by sentient
robots who take on unsavory tasks, thereby enhancing human life. In Chin’s clinical photos of biological/tool hybrids, she imbues manmade objects with complex biological qualities meant to perform a simple specific task that depreciates the user in value. A few of the specimens encourage laziness in developing tastes, or deny the ability to overindulge. “Sensitive Salter” is a shaker capped with a mouth that the photo boasts “dispenses salt to provide consistent gustatory salinity,” while the “Tasting Spoons” are familiar pieces of flatware, the bowl of each a limp, wet muscle covered in taste buds, which guarantee “gustatory sophistication,” according to Chin. The “Shuttling Shakers,” which hold parmesan cheese and have a clump of fingers at their bases, make manners obsolete by responding to simple commands. The artist really kicks you in the teeth with wisps of hair growing from the fleshy bits of each work. Also included are glossy mock cookbook pages with recipes such as “Eavesdrop Soup,” a dish which features aurally sensitive greens, complete with anecdotes and preparation directions. New York artist Tatiana Kronberg links
our relationship with food to other kinds of consumption in a satirical video. The infomercial-style work, “Cooking Chanel,” markets a kit for creating a cast of a designer handbag using gelatin and meat stew ingredients, in a mold of the iconic quilted purse. Accompanying the video are two queasy-making photographs of finished works, molded to perfection down to the stitching and double Cs of the brand. The useless bag provokes countless associations, including pouring resources into fashion, with disgust toward the lack of meaning behind these empty status symbols and their dubious origins. How easy is it to feed yourself from the leavings and rejected edibles of Rochester? How safe is it? You can find out by joining an experimental scavenge-for-dinner and installation event to be hosted at Rochester Contemporary on May 3 by national research and design collaborative Spurse. The group organizes public events and exhibitions that bring together diverse stakeholders in the urban environment. The Spurse installation at RoCo builds upon its recent project, “Eat Your Sidewalk,” and includes deceptively simple diagrams and charts that delineate courses of action toward shifting our resourcedistribution paradigm, as well as a grid of organized inedible objects scavenged from the Rochester landscape. Much of what we fear is what we have yet to attempt. To RSVP for the limited-space dinner call 461-2222. Learn more about the project at thecivilappetites.org.

ART | ALLIE HARTLEY “NOCTURNAL DEVOTIONS”
Talented Rochester-based artist Allie Hartley returns to the Record Archive (33 1/3 Rockwood St.) this week, presenting a body of new drawings under the title “Nocturnal Devotions.” Hartley has also recently shown her work at hell-themed hipster haven Lux Lounge on South Avenue. Her stark, graphic works are darkly romantic and reminiscent of old Hollywood mysteries and horrors. Hartley’s wee works in black and white at times boast stained-glass-esque bursts of color, and feature vamps and sisters weird who dally with demons, and skeletal sirens swooning while contemplating the eternal mysteries swirling around them. Each panel resembles a film still starring bedroom-eyed, glamorous film stars, felines, serpents, and angels, if they belonged to Aleister Crowley’s cult. A reception for “Nocturnal Devotions” will be held on Friday, April 12, 6-9 p.m., and the show will remain on view through the month of April. The event is free to attend.

For the slaves of Richmond, the Whipping Man is, likewise, memory and metaphor. He is the unseen brute to whom their masters sent them to be whipped and scarred. As they drink “liberated” wine and chew hardtack in place of matzoh, the characters’ conversations and conflicts take on an ethical dimension that gives the play scope despite the bluntness of its irony. What nuance the play has resides largely in the character of Simon, played by David Alan Anderson. He is the play’s wise old black man — a stereotype eased by Anderson’s humanizing embodiment of his decency, capacity for both hope and cruelty, and rock solid practicality. He seems to know almost everything as he waits for the return of his wife and daughter. The cast of “The Whipping Man,” now on stage at Geva Theatre Center.

Bearing the scars “The Whipping Man” THROUGH APRIL 28 GEVA THEATRE CENTER, 75 WOODBURY BLVD. TICKETS START AT $25 232-4382, GEVATHEATRE.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY MICHAEL LASSER
“The Whipping Man” by Martin Lopez begins in desolation and ends with not much more than a speck of hope — a meager sense of opportunity if the characters can somehow overcome years (even centuries) of experience (and history). Despite its refusal to provide easy answers for the many ethical and personal conflicts it portrays (though doesn’t necessarily illuminate), the play is almost unfailingly intense, dropping emotional bombshell after emotional bombshell until its final quiet 10 minutes. The 2006 play begins late at night on April 13, 1865, four days after Lee’s surrender at Appomattox and one day before Abraham Lincoln’s assassination. Caleb, a wounded Confederate soldier and the son of once-wealthy Jewish parents, returns home to Richmond. The family’s house is in ruins, shattered by artillery and fire, and picked bare by looters. It is deserted except for two slaves, the elderly but still vigorous Simon and the younger, less settled John, who need to teach their young master that things have changed. 22 CITY APRIL 10-16, 2013
If you think that sounds melodramatic and a little too neat, you’re reading me right. After a friendly reunion in which Caleb fails to recognize that he can no longer give orders, no matter how pleasantly, Simon realizes that the young man’s wound is gangrenous, and he and John must remove the leg. The preparation for the amputation makes for some harrowing moments but also gives the play its emotional marker. The dark secrets that tumble out thereafter — from desertion to miscegenation — are sometimes shocking but also sometimes predictable and even obvious. To reveal them in any detail would be unfair. Suffice it to say that just behind the story lurk an upstanding moral father who sells two slaves because one of them is pregnant, and an all-too-familiar sexual relationship between master and slave that is also (implausibly) romantic. Does that make the plot sound like a cousin
to a mystery story? In a way, yes. It parcels out suppressed information and then watches what happens — except there’s no easy solution at the end. What gives the play resonance is the unusual fact that the family and its slaves are Jewish. The three men celebrate a makeshift Seder that is more important to Simon and John than to Caleb, who lost his faith at Petersburg. The irony is dramatic but also obvious: Jews, for whom the liberation from slavery is the essential historical event and metaphor of their faith, now own slaves.
Rather than resisting the play’s melodramatic elements, director Tim Ocel apparently chose to emphasize them through a series of poses and gestures that feel larger and more mannered than called for by reality. He also lets two set pieces about eating go on too long. More importantly, Tyler Jacob Rollinson as John is capable of ferocious intensity but Ocel indulged his often-studied performance. The task was to keep the one while weeding out the other. Caleb, played by Andrew C. Ahrens, is the least fully developed character of the three even though he has the most to learn. His set speech to open Act 2 consists of a letter we learn about within the play, itself. Kendall Smith’s bleak light sheds little warmth within the ruined house, a strong set designed by Erhard Rom. The play will have more than 15 professional productions this season alone. I can understand why. It’s the kind of substantive melodrama that used to thrive on Broadway from the 1930’s through the 1950’s — such plays as “The Children’s Hour” (1939), “I Am a Camera” (1951), and “Inherit the Wind” (1955). I don’t mean that negatively. “The Whipping Man” is a well crafted, strongly written, accessible play that engages its audience emotionally. Its concern for ethical imperatives and conundrums after the dust settles are reassuring in a time of empty spectacle, even if the play sheds little new light on the inner struggles its characters bare and bear.

KIDS | COOL KIDS ECOFEST
The last few generations of humanity did a pretty good job of messing up the environment for the rest of us. So it’s up to the next generation to learn from our mistakes and start having a more positive impact on our planet. On Saturday, April 13, kids can learn what’s cool about green living at the 8th Annual Cool Kids EcoFest, held in The Forum at Genesee Community College (1 College Road, Batavia). From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., kids and adults can get a fun, free, hands-on education in the practices of recycling, eco-living, and sustainability. Outside, in the parking lot and plaza, there will be Pump ‘Em Up, a national tire-pressure check program with Dunn Tire; a Mercury Switchout drive-through with AAA; and recycling drives for agricultural plastics, plastic nursery stock, and e-scraps like computers, phones, printers, televisions, wirings, and much more. (In fact, it’ll take everything every except for personal or kitchen appliances.) Indoor activities include a book drive for American soldiers, a sneaker recycling drive, and more than 60 eco-vendors with green games, activities, demos, and art exhibitions. There will also be pizza party at 12:30 p.m., and a Wildlife stage show at 1 p.m. For more information on the EcoFest, call 637-3984 or go to genesee.edu. — BY JASON SILVERSTEIN Portraits of Pastries.”732-0036. firstname.lastname@example.org. shoefactoryarts.com.

LECTURE | ART AS ACTIVISM
There are many daunting challenges that we face as individuals, and as citizens in this wide, weird world. We can easily be overwhelmed by the magnitude of crucial matters that require our attention, and these matters are ever competing with numbing entertainment diversions. Some politically and socially conscious individuals choose to broach crucial subjects through artwork, at once seizing the attention of others and attempting to spark interest and initiative in them. On Friday, April 12, 5:30-7:30 p.m., University of Rochester’s Students for a Democratic Society will host an “Art as Actvism” evening in Morey Hall, room 321 on the River Campus. Panelists will share their thoughts on the intersection between art and activism and reveal how the combination is demonstrated through their art. Speakers include Heather Layton, UR senior lecturer in art, who created an18-foot rhinestone-encrusted drone replica as part of a recent installation exhibit in Massachusetts; Tara Najd Ahmadi, a visual and cultural studies graduate student and artist who is interested in the role of art in political activism; Erich Lehman of 1975 Gallery; and others. The discussion will be followed by an audience Q&A session. The event is free to attend, and free parking is available in the Rush Rhees Library lot after 5 p.m. Contact krickert@u. rochester.edu with questions or for more information. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY Ethics and Vaccine Denial: Medical Myths, Lies, and HalfTruths” by Dr. Steven Novella.

The cast of “Wicked,” currently on stage at the Auditorium Theatre through April 21. PHOTO COURTESY JOAN MARCUS
A broom with a view “Wicked” THROUGH APRIL 21 PRESENTED BY THE ROCHESTER BROADWAY THEATRE LEAGUE AUDITORIUM THEATRE, 885 E. MAIN ST. TICKETS START AT $37.50 | 800-745-3000, RBTL.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
Since opening on Broadway in 2003, “Wicked” has had smashing success, breaking box-office records and becoming one of the most beloved modern musicals. It has a large, devoted fanbase and inspires the sort of passion in people so that they are eager to see it time and time again. That at least partially explains why the show is back in Rochester for the third time in the past six years, still playing to a packed — and very enthusiastic — house, as evidenced by Thursday night’s performance at the Auditorium Theatre. One of the longest-running shows currently on Broadway, “Wicked” is often mentioned in the same breath as “Phantom of the Opera” and “Les Miserables,” though what that means depends entirely on your personal feelings about those shows. The timing of the show’s return to Rochester also happens to capitalize on the revived interest in the magical land of Oz, thanks to the current success of “Oz The Great and Powerful” at the cinematic box office. If you’re bothering to read this review, it’s likely you’re already aware of the musical’s 24 CITY APRIL 10-16, 2013
basic plot. The story is loosely based off of Gregory Maguire’s novel, which cleverly invented a complex backstory for the “Wizard of Oz”’s Wicked Witch of the West, here known as Elphaba. The novel was born out of a desire to humanize one of the most famous villains of all time, though the story seen in the musical adaptation is significantly simplified and often altered outright in order to keep things light and ensure a happy ending for all of its major characters. The main focus here is on the friendship between Elphaba and Glinda that begins after they’re assigned to be roommates at Shiz University. The two women are total opposites. Elphaba is fiercely intelligent but misunderstood and feared due to her green skin, while Glinda is a bubbly social climber, drawn to wealth and popularity. The musical follows the ups and downs of their relationship over the course of several years, showing how they were each formed by their experiences into the women we recognize from the most famous Oz story, “The Wizard of Oz.” There’s a lot of plot crammed into the show, which makes it feel condensed and extremely rushed; that’s odd considering that so much of it was invented just for the stage. The problem is particularly obvious at the end of the first act, when Elphaba goes from honored guest of the Wizard to undesirable No. 1 awfully quickly. Any production of “Wicked” is only as
good as its Elphaba and Glinda. The two leads in this touring company (Jennifer
DiNoia and Hayley Podschun, respectively) are phenomenal. DiNoia has a powerhouse voice, and Podschun nails the infectiously bubbly energy that the role of Glinda requires. The downside of playing these parts, however, is that the two actors who originated them on Broadway — Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth — were so good in their roles that everyone cast since is tasked with the duty of simply duplicating their performances. As a result, no actress is ever given the chance to make the part her own. So as good as DiNoia and Podschun are, I found myself constantly thinking, “Wow, they sound just like Kristin /Idina.” It left me curious about what the parts could have been if the actors had been allowed to put their own stamps on them. But that will never happen with audiences expecting to get precisely what they hear every time they listen to the soundtrack. The show looks fantastic. The sets, the costumes, the lighting and effects all add up to an impressive theatrical experience. But too often, it feels like spectacle for the sake of spectacle. Even the choreography has the feeling of dutifully rolling out the occasional dance number because this is a musical, and that’s what’s expected. But the empty glitz is best exemplified by the iron dragon that resides the top of the stage. Despite its light-up eyes, flapping wings, and smoke pouring from its nostrils, it serves no purpose in the show whatsoever. Stephen Schwartz’s score boasts a few legitimately great songs, but far too many that come across as generic and instantly forgettable. There’s a reason that most everyone is familiar with “Popular” and “Defying Gravity,” whether they’ve seen the show or not. The only other song that stuck with me at all was “The Wizard and I.” Still, I wasn’t humming a single one as I left the theater. Like the novel it is sourced from, the musical version of “Wicked” raises some thoughtful questions about the nature of evil, and whether people are born bad. But the musical constantly casts them aside in favor of more bright lights and shiny objects. Given some thought, it’s a little unseemly that a show that is critical of those who are so wrapped up in appearances that they’re unable to look beyond the surface of things is itself so consumed with the desire to be beautiful and popular.

RECREATION | PHILBRICK PARK GUIDED TOUR
As of press time, Rochester seems to be actually resembling spring — there are decent temperatures outside, lots of sunshine, and we haven’t had any freakish snowstorms for at least the last day or two. So we advise that you soak up the warm weather before things get weird again. One way to make the most of the great outdoors this week is the Penfield Trails Committee’s guided tour of Penfield’s Channing H. Philbrick Park (1 Linear Park Drive, off of Route 441) on Saturday, April 13. From 10 a.m. to noon, hikers will be lead through the 19-acre park that has several waterfalls, trails along the Irondequoit Creek, and remains of the old mills that once bustled along the creek banks about 200 years ago. The hike is free. Participating hikers are asked to pre-register by calling Penfield Recreation at 340-8655, and will meet at the kiosk on the north side of the bridge by the park (keep an eye out for the “Hike” signs). — BY JASON SILVERSTEIN

The Bible of the Beat Generation [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA
“On the Road” (R), DIRECTED BY WALTER SALLES NOW PLAYING
For reasons no critic quite comprehends, Neal Cassady commanded the attention and indeed the love of most of the major members of the Beat Generation, dominating their literature and their lives. The Beat saint, the holy goof, a car thief, street hustler, speed freak, and prodigious womanizer, he even accomplished the odd transition from one literary generation to another, joining Ken Kesey’s Merry

Pranksters, immortalized in Tom Wolfe’s “The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test.” The first true cinematic adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s “On the Road” (a superficial sketch of the characters, “Heart Beat,” appeared in 1980) adheres reasonably closely to the book, one of the important American novels of the 20th century and perhaps the best representation of the first modern counter culture. Anyone who knows the novel, the period, or even the literary chatter about it recognizes that the work is a roman á clef, a novel with a key, populated by fictional versions of well-known people, which makes the movie something of an exercise in identification. All the famous figures appear — Carlo Marx (Allen Ginsberg), Bull Lee (William S. Burroughs), Sal Paradise (Kerouac), and of course Dean Moriarty (Cassady). The movie begins abruptly without prologue or title, showing Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund), an inspired driver, parking cars in New York, then meeting Sal Paradise (Sam Riley) and Carlo Marx (Tom Sturridge) and launching the

famous friendship. From that point, the plot roughly follows the pattern of the book, with Sal narrating the story of his travels, initially leaving Ginsberg’s “nowhere Zen New Jersey” to journey back and forth across the country, periodically meeting up with Dean and his various wives and lovers. Now and then in his travels, hitching rides, working various jobs, Sal experiences something of the vast landscape of America, a Whitmanesque vision of the people and places that constitute the real spirit of the nation. Although it appeared in 1957, the novel actually deals with the previous decade, which the movie captures with a genuine sense of authenticity — the music, the clothes, the cars (especially the cars), and the general mood of a delayed post-war exuberance, which itself may account for the phenomenon of the Beats. In the great tradition of the picaresque, Sal, Dean, and their companions constantly travel and constantly stay one step ahead of the law, stealing food and gasoline, cadging money, freeloading from various friends, and collecting speeding tickets from unsympathetic highway patrolmen. In the same tradition, the film sometimes falls into a dull, repetitive pattern when the characters stop moving — as Dean says in the book, “The road is life.” The characters themselves display a kind of behavior perhaps more shocking in their time than now, including the use of heroin, marijuana, and Benzedrine (probably the key to Cassady’s

boundless energy) and some unusual sexual arrangements. Sal sleeps with Dean’s wife, Marylou (Kristen Stewart), while Dean looks on, and Dean has sex with anybody and everybody, including his two wives, some other women, Carlo Marx, and a weird salesman (Steve Buscemi). Though physically suited for the role of Dean Moriarty, Garret Hedlund runs out of dialogue, so that like the silly scenes of him jumping up and down in front of a hand-held camera, he seems confined to repeating himself over and over. Sam Riley is far too callow and passive for Sal Paradise, who after all is older than Dean and a man of some experience; instead, Riley looks like an adolescent worshipping the high-school football star. Amazingly, Kristen Stewart, the insipid princess of the “Twilight” saga, performs quite creditably both in and out of her clothes, showing a whole new possibility and some previously hidden talents. Too much of “On the Road” literalizes the novel, with characters delivering lines they’ve already written—Ginsberg quoting “Howl” before he even writes it, and Paradise writing the novel as he lives it. Like Kerouac’s book, the script finally runs out of steam, ending with a downbeat scene of farewell between Sal and Dean. It also includes, in Sal’s final voice-over narration, some of the lovely lyrical coda that almost compensates for the disillusionments of Dean’s various manipulations and betrayals. The road is life, but the end of the road turns out to be something else.
With 2012’s “Cabin in the Woods” still so fresh in the minds of moviegoers, Fede Alvarez’s new remake of Sam Raimi’s horror classic, “The Evil Dead,” has its work cut out for it. It has to find a way to make fresh the tropes of the now wellknown story that “Cabin” so cleverly sent up, as well as distinguish itself from the glut of poorly received horror remakes churned out over the past several years. Alvarez’s solution seems to be doing away with the quirky tone of Raimi’s film and amping up the gore to near absurd levels. But he manages to strike the right balance between staying true to the spirit of the original while still giving modern horror buffs exactly what they crave. In “Evil Dead,” five friends travel to a remote, yes, cabin in the woods to stage an intervention for their drug-addicted friend Mia (Jane Levy, the clear standout amongst the meat puppets) and help her kick the habit cold turkey. While there, they

stumble across a book, bound in human flesh, entitled “The Book of the Dead,” and naturally decide to read from it. No surprise, reading from this book awakens some demonic entities, allows them to possess the living, and generally makes things unpleasant for everyone in the cabin. The new film diverts from the plot of the original in some major ways, but a couple of early changes have the effect of making this group of kids out to be severely stupid when compared to those in Raimi’s film. The most significant of these changes is the characters actively deciding to read from the book as opposed to accidentally playing a recording of the demon-unleashing incantation. They’re also possibly a little too slow on the uptake regarding the tipping point between detox and demon possession. Helpful hint: trying to boil one’s own face off with scalding hot water is not typically a side effect of heroin withdrawal. The new Exhibit No. 1 in the argument that you can put as much violence and bloodshed into a film and still get an “R” rating, just so long as there’s no sex, “Evil Dead” is saturated with gooey, sticky gore. Alvarez’s decision to use mostly practical effects instead of CGI adds a tactile quality that adds to the throwback feel of his film. Some of the most cringe-inducing moments, however, come from the sounds of actions happening off-camera. If there is any justice in the world, “Evil Dead” will be an Oscar nominee next year in the categories of make-up and sound design. I’ve heard complaints that the new “Evil Dead” lacks the tongue-in-cheek humor of the original. Re-watching the first movie, I was struck by how straight it plays the material (for the most part). The goofiness everyone associates with the film doesn’t really come in until the campy sequel, and it apparently seeped over in everyone’s memories. Nearly all of the humor in the original is the byproduct of its inventively low-budget effects and unpolished acting.
What struck me most about the remake is its ability to maintain an atmosphere of fun while taking the material seriously. Lacking is the air of cynicism that I associate with a lot of recent horror, like the “Saw” franchise. Alvarez’s main concern is that his audience has a good time; you watch the mayhem unfolding onscreen, squeal, and try to cover your eyes, but you laugh your head off all the while. In 1988, the Chilean government was
forced to enact a referendum wherein the population would vote whether to keep then president/dictator Augusto Pinochet in power. A “yes” vote meant he stayed, “no” meant that democracy would win out and an election would be held to elect a new leader. “No,” Oscar-nominated last year for Best Foreign Film, tells the story of ad executive René Saavedra (Gael García Bernal, in one of his best performances), who was recruited to spearhead the No campaign. The film shows how Saavedra cannily used the language of advertising to turn the tide of the campaign and overthrow a fascist regime. Instead of depressing the public by focusing on the atrocities committed under Pinochet’s regime, Saavedra saw that the way to victory was by packaging happiness itself. His campaign highlighted the positivity that would come with the freedom of democracy by creating ads that resembled soda commercials more than anything else, complete with a catchy jingle. Though “No” is actually the final entry in director Pablo Larraín’s trilogy about the Pinochet regime, following 2008’s “Tony Manero” and “Post Mortem” in 2010, it’s not necessary to have seen those film to appreciate “No.” Larraín keeps the film light and funny enough so the two-hour running time zips by. Half historical drama, half satire, “No” documents the point when the Venn diagram of marketing and politics officially became a circle.

Mind Body Spirit
Restored with love in the 19th Ward neighborhood, 333 Inglewood Drive offers both vintage charm and mechanical updates. This early 20th century American Foursquare home is located on a picturesque residential street – you’re greeted by stately trees and ample front yards as you pull up to the home. Mature plantings around the property itself offer a chance to stretch your gardening muscles and the backyard, with a two car garage, could easily accommodate a patio/lawn combo.
coming onto the enclosed porch. This porch would make a perfect four-season room with the addition of a space heater or wood stove.
Entering the house from the side door brings you into the kitchen, which has decorative tin work and original cupboards that offer plenty of storage. A handy coat closet passes all the way through the wall to the front foyer for a lot of storage options or the possibility for a cozy first floor powder room. A pass-through to the dining room offers a breakfast bar/seating area that can be used in either room. Hardwood floors begin in the dining room, which also features a large picture window that lets in the sunlight and provides a view of the backyard. If you’re a bird watcher this would be an excellent place for a feeder or two. Hardwood floors and unpainted, original woodwork continue throughout the first floor.
The attic and basement are both unfinished so they can function as storage or be converted into more living space. The basement does have plumbing and has in the past held a full bath so the possibility of a rec room/living area for a growing family is definitely there.
The living room holds the crown jewel of the house, a fireplace flanked by book cases in the original gumwood trim that adorns the entire first floor. The front foyer holds the other end of the pass-through closet for coats and boots. Guests who enter the home from the front door have shelter from the weather by
The second floor has three bedrooms, each with decent closet space. The bathroom is good sized and gives the new homeowner an opportunity for a double sink and other updates while still maintaining space with a large linen closet right in the room for convenient towel access.
333 Inglewood Drive is listed at $79,900 and offers 1200 square feet of living space. It is just minutes away from shopping and dining on Chili Avenue and Thurston Road. The 19th Ward neighborhood also offers superb housing stock, the active 19th Ward Community Association (www.19wca.org), a diverse population, and convenient access to downtown, the University of Rochester campus, and the picturesque Genesee Valley Park.

I am an attorney licensed by the State of New York, and I am a member of Chamberlain D’Amanda Oppenheimer & Greenfield LLP, attorneys for the plaintiff. 2. I make this affidavit in support of a motion for summary judgment in lieu of complaint based upon my personal knowledge, the plaintiff’s records, and the records of the original forum. 3. This is an action to convert a judgment entered in favor of the plaintiff, Linda J. Stewart, against defendant James F. Stewart, Jr., on October 2, 2012 in the Circuit Court of the Eighth Judicial Circuit of Illinois, Adams County, the Honorable Scott E. Walden presiding, into a New York State judgment. 4, Attached as Exhibit A is a court authenticated and exemplified copy of the Illinois default judgment. It bears the stamp “Filed October 2, 2012.” The inside of the cover bears a certification from Lori R. Geschwandner, the Clerk of the Circuit Court, that she has compared the default judgment attached as Exhibit A with the original judgment on file and that it is a true copy. 5. The cover backing also contains the certification by the Honorable Scott H. Walden, a Judge of the Court, who granted the default judgment against defendant James F. Stewart, Jr., on October 2, 2012, that Lori R. Geschwandner’s signature in her certificate
is true and genuine, and that on the date of her certificate, February 4, 2013, she was the duly elected Clerk of the Court, and that full faith and credit are due to all her official acts. 6. Finally, the cover backing contains a certificate by Lori R. Geschwandner that Scott H. Walden’s signature is true and genuine, and that at the time of his signing, February 4, 2013, he was a duly qualified and acting Judge of the Circuit Court of the Eighth Judicial Circuit of Illinois in and for Adams County, and that full faith and credit are due his acts. 7. As a judgment of a sister state, it is entitled by the United States Constitution to full faith and credit by New York State. Since it was obtained by default in appearance by defendant James F. Stewart, Jr., however, the summary enforcement filing procedure of CPLR Article 54 cannot be used. Accordingly, the procedures of CPLR Section 3213, motion for Summary Judgment in Lieu of Complaint, are being used. The default judgment is unsatisfied in whole, the amount of $652,133.45 plus interest from October 2, 2012 remains unpaid, and enforcement of the judgment has not been stayed. 8. The judgment debtor is James F. Stewart, Jr., and his last known address is 95 Sandcastle Drive, Rochester, New York14622. WHEREFORE, deponent requests that summary judgment be granted: 1. Making the State of Illinois judgment into a New York State judgment entitled to all enforcement procedures as a judgment of the Supreme Court of the State of New York. 2. Allowing the entry of judgment against defendant James F. Stewart, Jr., in the amount of $652,133.45, plus Illinois expenses and court costs in the amount of $574.40, plus interest from October 2, 2012, together with the New York costs and disbursements of this action.

The Continuing Crisis
— Professor Peter Froehlich, who teaches computer science classes at the highly competitive Johns Hopkins University, contractually grades “on a curve,” automatically marking the highest grade an A, with other grades trailing based on their proximity to the class’s best. One clever student tried to organize the entire class for December’s final exam, to persuade everyone to do no work at all -thus rendering the “highest” grade a zero, meaning an A for everyone. (Of course, if a single student broke ranks, everyone except that student would receive an absolute zero.) Fortunately for the students, according to InsideHigherEd.com, the class held together, and a shocked professor Froehlich nonetheless honored his contract, giving everyone an A (but subsequently closing the loophole). —Thieves broke into the home of Earlie Johnson in Muskegon, Mich., in February and made off with several flat-screen TVs, but what really irked him was that they also stole his entire DVD pornography collection, consisting, he said, of the films of every African-American porn star since the 1970s. (“I’m not no scum bag guy, pervert, or nothing like that,” he told WZZM-TV. “I just thought it was cool to own my own porn collection. It keeps my relationship (with his fiance) fresh and tight.”) As soon as the news of Johnson’s misfortune spread, several adult video companies donated DVDs to help restore the collection. —Sex Is Dangerous: (1) Officers from the Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority reported in March that a lion had attacked a couple having sex in the bush, killing the woman and sending the man dashing down a road wearing nothing but
his condom (which reduced his chances of receiving help from motorists). (2) Near Daytona Beach, Fla., in February, Ms. Asia Walker, 30, driving her boyfriend around, could not resist his amorous advances and soon lost control of the car. It left the road and plowed completely through a vacant house. She was briefly hospitalized, but her boyfriend was not hurt.
Fine Points of the Law
Even though the British government refused to grant trademark protection to the Italian maker of “Jesus Jeans” because it would be “morally offensive to the public,” the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office had no such qualms and approved the application in 2007. Since then, according to a February Wall Street Journal story, the company has prevented a dozen other companies from using such clothing names as “Jesus First,” “Sweet Jesus,” “Jesus Couture” and, most recently, “Jesus Surfed.”
People Different From Us
A persevering Brooklyn, N.Y., high school teacher, Ronald Grassel, finally relented and submitted himself to a psychiatric evaluation that had originally been ordered in 1997 after he angrily and overenthusiastically dumped teachers’ union literature in his principal’s office. Grassel had refused the exam and been benched, and for 14 years was neither fired nor paid while he filed a series of unsuccessful legal actions to overturn the decision. According to a March New York Post report, when he finally submitted to an exam in 2011, he was declared fit (his world-class obstinacy apparently not counting against him) and in September 2012 was back on the job.
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 32 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): A passionate encounter is in the stars, but before you decide to get up close and personal with someone, make sure you know your partner well. Aggressive behavior and jealousy appear to be present and can lead to a relationship that is questionable. Avoid unpredictable, overindulgent partners. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll attract plenty of interest. Before you enter into a relationship, make sure the person you are considering is no longer attached to someone else. Secret affairs are prevalent and will eventually lead to heartache. Keep everything out
in the open and platonic until you are certain. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Forward motion will help you forget the past and move on from heartbreak. Put greater emphasis on finding someone who shares your interests and values. It’s difficult to make a relationship work when you don’t share the same standards regarding what a relationship should entail. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Spare your heart from the aggravation that will transpire if you let someone take advantage of your kind and loving personality. Think twice before you do too much for someone eager to take without giving back. Equality will
be necessary if you are to find true love and happiness. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Put your best foot forward and get involved in challenges, events and activities that will bring you in contact with admirers. Love at first sight is in the stars, and once the love bug bites, there will be no turning back. Follow your heart and enjoy the moment. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You may be eager to find love, but you are likely to overlook some of the fundamental requirements you have when it comes to a partnership. Don’t jump into a relationship for the wrong reasons. It’s just as lonely being
in a poor relationship as it is being single. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Opposites do attract, and that’s exactly what’s in store for you. Don’t look for a mirror image of you when the one who will hold your interest has a broad spectrum of the things you aren’t likely to experience on your own. Compromise mixed with adventure equals love. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You can talk your way into anyone’s heart with your passionate expression and unique and captivating knowledge and experience. Share your thoughts and desires, and before you know it, someone just as creative and
imaginative as you will want to share your world. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll have trouble making up your mind when it comes to love. Before you get into trouble, make sure you don’t make suggestions or promises that will compromise any of the potential relationships that interest you. Honesty will buy you the time required to pick your partner. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You may know what you want when it comes to a personal partner, but don’t count on the person you are interested in being as sure as you. An unexpected change of heart is likely to leave you feeling baffled,
confused and uncertain how or if you should respond. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Getting back to basics will lead to a solid love relationship with someone with whom you share history, interests and common ground. Altering your current living arrangements will seal the deal. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll be attracted to someone who can offer you comfort, security and a practical lifestyle -- though once you have what you think you want, you are likely to feel a lack of freedom to explore the unique and unusual adventures that you desire. Be careful what you wish for.
