Climate change: upsetting the balance Nature is an intricate and finely-tuned balancing act. Mess with one aspect of it, and big — and unanticipated — changes can occur. Climate change is altering the balance of nature. It’s driving up temperatures and forcing shifts in precipitation patterns. These changes, in turn, are causing changes in ecosystems. Many of the changes are subtle, for now. But animals and plants could shift their ranges, disappearing from places they’ve historically called home. And new invasive plants, insects, and pathogens could move in to territories they’ve previously found inhospitable.
Earth has experienced climate shifts before, but they’ve historically occurred over thousands of years. Temperatures are now increasing at an unprecedented rate. And human activities are at least partly responsible, especially the consumption of fossil fuels, which emit greenhouse gases. The animals and plants that have evolved over many generations for current conditions are facing substantial changes in less than a century. And each potential change hinges on other factors which, themselves, are variable. This is the first in an occasional series on the regional effects of climate change.

Housing in College Town
“If City Council insists we must have affordable housing, let it be for medical students or young professionals trying to pay off student loans” (a southeast resident’s comment in “Affordable Housing Dogs College Town”). While this may sound reasonable, I think it verges on illegal discrimination. You can’t pick and choose who can move into a particular neighborhood. If you can decide which poor people you want to live in your community, then why not just decide which race? Or which religion? Illegal is illegal, regardless of what rationale you use to justify it. Kudos to Lovely Warren for fighting for the people of Rochester.

There’s a saying that “you are liberal because you can afford to be.” College Town is a highprofile project; let’s charge full market rate and pay back any loans or invested dollars as quickly as possible. This is not the place for “affordable” housing, which is “subsidized” housing. We have provided that in our city for all our citizens of need. Not everyone who reads City Newspaper is hung up in the 1 percent bull. Life is not always on a level playing field, and we have gone way too far with subsidies that don’t return the investment.

(On “State Report Shows Little Progress in City Schools,” News Blog) One major problem with reports like this one (and the subsequent reporting on the reports) is the emphasis on math and English. While math and English
are important subjects, the schools are emphasizing them to the detriment of other subjects that can compliment math and English – but only if they’re respected. At many middle schools, it is common knowledge that students do not need to pass science or social studies to pass the grade. As long as their English and math grades are good enough, the administration will move them on to the next grade. The result is the extraordinarily high failure rates in ninthgrade science and social studies. Students arrive in high school only caring about math and English scores and not realizing how important other subjects are in high school. We can tell them until they’re blue in the face, but until they experience failure, too many don’t realize, and at that point the damage is done. Whatever the positives or negatives this report has to say about the district, the (over)emphasis on math and English is damaging in the long term to the students we seek to help. YUGOBOY

The search for a superintendent
This was a “search” like the first search for MCC’s presidency in ‘08. And surprise, surprise, the interim is doing one heck of a job! Why bother going through this whole thing? We’ll just drop the “interim” part. It angers me that the board allowed Vargas to apply; the interim was NOT supposed to be able to. But I doubt enough people care, and even if they did, it’s irrelevant, because they don’t get a vote. But never let it be said that only Republicans think of Rochester as Smugtown. SEAN
Posted on rochestercitynewspaper.com This was not an open process. The board LIED to this community. You said that the interim would not be allowed to apply, and you told candidate after candidate that inquired about this that if they applied they would not be eligible for permanent job. Had you been forthright in the beginning, when hiring the interim, saying that the interim would be allowed to apply, other candidates probably would have applied for that position. The person sitting in the chair always gets the advantage. LISA JOHNSON
Posted on rochestercitynewspaper.com
One of the reasons to hire a search firm is to identify potential candidates and approach them about applying for the position. This is how the search can be opened up – by finding people who might not actively be looking for a position but who would be a good fit for the RCSD. Two candidates, with one the interim, is not a choice. It’s more important to get it right than to meet a deadline. The search committee must reconvene and the search firm must do its job, or they should find another firm. LAUREN VICKER

Tom Richards’ first year
Well, Tom Richards managed to make a big controversial mess out of the Paetec-Midtown project, wasting millions in taxpayers’ hardearned money (“Year One: How’s He Doing?”). There is some good news about something being built by a company on the site, but no one is clear as to what is going to go in the remainder of the Midtown site. Crime is another big issue; the mayor has not explained in full detail what he is going to do, especially in the area of gang-related murders. Overall, he is doing ok and not an outstanding job. DAVID BERGMANN
Posted on rochestercitynewspaper.com Midtown was a dying white elephant. Someone was going to have to pay to get rid of the asbestos and take it down. The city was in no position to do that; the state was. The “deal” with Paetec brought the state money in, not a bad result for the city. We now have land that can be developed rather than an abandoned white elephant loaded with asbestos. XCTRAVELER
Posted on rochestercitynewspaper.com The only structural problem the city has is how we give away our tax base with all these Pilots and other agreements. The loan College Town wants would be paid for by the reduced property taxes the project would pay. We’re broke but giving away $20 million in tax revenue? The rewatering of Broad Street isn’t dead; they are still planning it, along with the marina in Charlotte. Our financially strapped city would be flush with money if they’d stop the give-aways and get out of property development. DOWNTOWNDUDE

GUEST COMMENTARY | BY RICHARD S. GILBERT
Tax facts and just taxes One of the missing dimensions in the debate over the federal budget is justice – simple fairness. I believe that good fortune obligates. Those who have fared well in our economy have a moral obligation to contribute more to the common good, not as a punishment for success, but as a responsibility to our community: our fair share. Congressman Paul’s Ryan’s reverse Robin Hood budget, granting more tax cuts to the rich by cutting programs for the poor, takes a different approach. Ryan has confessed admiration for the philosophy of the late Ayn Rand, whose Atlas Shrugged protagonist John Galt said, “I swear – by my life and my love of it – that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.” Rand once said: “Capitalism and altruism are incompatible. They are philosophical opposites; they cannot co-exist in the same man, or in the same society.” Adam Smith’s “invisible hand” is sometimes shaped like the fist of capitalism’s “creative destruction.” Our vaunted free-market ethic is the “devil take the hindmost.” Our no-holdsbarred society becomes increasingly fractured in the yawning gap between rich and middle class, and middle class and poor. Yet some call Ryan “courageous” for this proposal. What astonishes me is the whining I hear about our tax burden as Americans. We are one of the least taxed of the industrial democracies; only Chile and Mexico have lower federal tax burdens as a percentage of GDP. As a share of the nation’s economy, we pay the lowest federal taxes since the 1950’s. Marginal tax rates for the wealthiest have plummeted from 90 percent under a Republican president to 35 percent on earned income, but only 15 percent for capital gains. The tax rate paid by all Americans since the beginning of the recession in 2007 has fallen 26 percent; one-third of the often-vilified stimulus package went for tax cuts. Many wealthy individuals and profitable corporations exploit loopholes and pay nothing. Yet we have developed a victimhood mentality, fed by politicians who have never seen a tax cut they didn’t like or a tax hike they didn’t hate. Tax cutting has become an article of religious faith. Tax cuts are virtuous; tax increases are sinful. I think of the tombstone inscription, “Born a man; died a taxpayer.”
We have a stark choice: a winnertake-all policy, which further splinters our already fractured society, or a policy based on community responsibility.” When you count only the federal income tax, the wealthy pay a lion’s share; they have most of the money. But when you take state and local, property, sales, FICA, and other mostly regressive taxes into account, people pay approximately proportionate to their incomes. The share of total taxes paid by the richest 1 percent (21.6 percent) is almost identical to that group’s share of total income (21 percent). The share of total taxes paid by the poorest fifth of Americans (2.1 percent) is only slightly less than this group’s share of total income (3.4 percent). The total effective tax rate for the richest 1 percent (29 percent) is only slightly more than the total effective tax rate for the middle fifth of taxpayers (25.2 percent). Overall we are very close to a de facto flat tax. These are tax facts to contemplate as we pay our taxes this election season. And there are just taxes we ought to support: a fair tax policy based on ability to pay. We have a stark choice before us: a winnertake-all policy, which further splinters our already fractured society, or a policy based on community responsibility, in which we understand our obligation to the common good. Poet T. S. Eliot puts it well: “When the Stranger says: ‘What is the meaning of this city?’ … What will you answer? ‘We all dwell together to make money from each other’? or ‘This is a community’?” Richard S. Gilbert is a retired Unitarian Universalist minister and is president of Interfaith Impact of New York State. Mary Anna Towler’s Urban Journal is on break and will return next week.

Brooks out-raises Slaughter
Reports filed with the Federal Elections Commission show that Republican Maggie Brooks has so far received more in campaign contributions than Democrat Louise Slaughter. Brooks is challenging Slaughter for the 25th congressional seat. Brooks reported that she took in more than $250,000 to Slaughter’s $205,000. But Slaughter has more cash on hand, $529,800, compared to Brooks’ $252,000.
Dems want to end intercept
County Legislature Democrats have introduced legislation to end Monroe’s participation in a Medicaid-sales tax swap. This year’s state budget has a provision that would let the county opt out. The reason: the state is phasing-in a takeover of counties’ Medicaid cost growth, which should be fully implemented in 2015.

Group pledges to end cancer by 2020
The cardiac team at the University of Rochester Medical Center implanted an artificial heart in 49year-old Gaetano Orlando. Orlando played hockey with the Rochester Americans and Buffalo Sabres. The device is a bridge for transplant patients who suffer from some forms of end-stage heart failure, but a transplanted organ isn’t an immediate option. There are more than 3,100 people waiting for heart transplants in the US. The URMC is one of 30 sites in the country offering the technology.
The American public needs to demand more results and accountability for our cancer research dollars, says Gary Mervis, founder of Cancer Mission 2020. PHOTO BY MIKE HANLON
It’s been decades since former President Richard Nixon declared war on cancer. Enormous strides have been made in preventing and treating the disease, but 11,000 Americans still die from cancer weekly. And cancer is now the leading cause of death in Monroe County, surpassing heart disease. Cancer Mission 2020 got its start in 2010 when Gary Mervis met with a group of community leaders and together they vowed to wipe-out cancer by the end of the decade. It may sound like a daunting challenge, but Mervis, a long-time children’s health advocate and founder of Camp Good Days and Special Times, disagrees. He took on the challenge after picking up three major daily newspapers in the Tampa airport. “Between these three dailies, there were nine pages on the swine flu epidemic, and not even a word about cancer,” Mervis says. “We have the ability to do this, but we have got to get the American people to put cancer on the front burner.”
By increasing public awareness, Mervis says he hopes CM2020 can create a sense of urgency and accountability. The organization has convened several meetings involving city, county, and congressional leaders as well as oncology specialists to draft federal legislation to help fund and expedite cancer research. For instance, more clinical trials are needed and adult cancer patients need greater access to the trials, Mervis says. “Surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy: we’ve had the same options for years now,” Mervis says. “We need to go to the next level.” Mervis says he hopes the bill will be introduced in Congress in January 2013.

4,485 US servicemen and servicewomen, 318 Coalition servicemen and servicewomen, and approximately 106,247 to 116,068 Iraqi civilians have been killed in Iraq from the beginning of the war and occupation to April 13. No American casualties were reported after November 14. IRAQ TOTALS —
Affordable housing dogs College Town Rochester City Council President Lovely Warren says she will not sign-off on a $20 million loan for College Town on Mt. Hope unless the Lovely Warren. project includes affordable housing. FILE PHOTO “I know that they have to find some sort of balance as far as the numbers are concerned,” Warren says. “But I don’t think that it should be all market-rate apartments when the entire city is going to be footing the bill for this. If you’re putting in city money, then the city should be able to say to the developer, ‘some of these apartments should be affordable.’” College Town is a 500,000-squarefoot project planned for 16 acres on Mt. Hope. Part of the purpose is to bring the University of Rochester, the UR Medical Center, and the surrounding neighborhoods together. Plans for College Town include a Barnes and Noble bookstore, grocery, hotel and conference

center, fitness center, transit station, and shops and restaurants. Plans also include 150 market-rate apartments. Rochester Mayor Tom Richards wants City Council to approve a $20million loan to get College Town moving. It would be a federal loan repaid by the city with money it receives from a tax agreement with College Town’s developers. Richards says the loan is a good investment because College Town would create around 600 permanent jobs. And he says he understands Warren’s point. “There’s a market for moderateincome people over there,” Richards says. “If you’re a beginning nurse at Strong hospital, you are, in some cases, a lowincome individual. Everybody over there is not a neurosurgeon.” Although it’s ultimately the developers’ decision whether or not to include it in the project, Richards says College Town should have affordable housing. Where Warren may run into trouble is with the neighborhood. Dan Hurley, president of the Upper Mount Hope Neighborhood Association, is urging neighbors to contact Council members
about the affordable housing issue, whether they’re in favor or opposed. “If City Council insists we must have affordable housing, then let it be for medical students or young professionals trying to pay off student loans,” Hurley wrote in a letter to neighbors. “[Or] patients with high medical costs in need of some form of financial assistance.” Hurley says the neighborhood is trying to come up with progressive ways to meet affordable housing needs, “instead of just the traditional, ‘Well, let’s just let anybody who’s HUD or Section 8 or whatever move in.” Warren says that Hurley doesn’t get to choose who lives in College Town and who doesn’t. “He wants to be able to choose what poor people live where, and you don’t get that choice,” she says. “I don’t think that’s logical. And I don’t think that’s fair.” Richards says he expects Council to vote on the $20-million loan at its April 24 meeting. Groundbreaking for College Town is expected in November of this year.

The superintendent finalists speak After a long and somewhat controversial search, two finalists are vying to become the Rochester school district’s new superintendent. City recently interviewed the candidates: Andre Spencer, an administrator with the Houston Independent School District, and Bolgen Vargas, a former counselor at Greece Arcadia High School and the RCSD’s interim superintendent. Edited versions of interviews with Spencer and Vargas follow. The complete interviews are at rochestercitynewspaper.com.
Bolgen Vargas. FILE PHOTO
CITY: What are the biggest problems facing students, parents, and the community in the Rochester school district?
Vargas: The district needs to be proactive with children at a very early age. By early age I mean being school ready and continuing to provide them with the social and emotional support they need to have a developmental trajectory that leads to high achievement. We do know from research that when you do not have an early intervention program and you try to intervene in middle or high school, it becomes more difficult to get students to achieve. So, the district needs to make sure that every child is reading at least at the third-grade level by the time they reach that grade. That is a fundamental goal for me, reading. Why? Because we know that if that child is not reading proficiently at the third-grade level, that child has a 74 percent chance of falling behind. If you consider our dropout problems, research and our experience tell us that City
APRIL 18-24, 2012
unless you provide strong intervention in literacy and math early on, many students get stuck by the time they reach ninth grade. We have a high level of retention in ninth grade because kids come to high school without the skill set they need. If you want student achievement to be measured by graduation rates, college readiness, and career readiness then you’re going to have to strengthen intervention services and support at the elementary level. And that cannot be done, in my view, unless you extend the school day. The fact is that too many of our students need extra support. Imagine if we said to that child and that parent that we are going to step up and provide the support you need, and the week or day you fall behind, we have support available for you. A highly trained individual will help you catch up. At the same time you have to provide social and emotional support with music, arts, and sports. The second challenge is proper allocation of resources. We have to make this organization more effective and efficient in order for us to provide the kind of service and support our children need. Every dollar we spend has to be well-spent.
support to our students, teachers, and principals who try to do the hard work that we’re asking them to do. Evaluations have to be fair. Their aim has to be continuous improvement and a continued learning approach. And unless you’re fair, teachers and parents won’t trust you or follow your lead. We were one of the first five districts in the state to meet the standards for teacher evaluations. How do you increase parent involvement?
We’re trying to improve communication. That is critical. We’re doing better, but we have so much more to do. I want students to know what classes they are going to have by the time they go home for summer break, and I want teachers to know where they are going to be teaching by June. We’re going to have a strong orientation program in each school for parents, to help them set expectations for children. High expectations can’t be a slogan; it has to be demonstrated with support.
We have many schools that the state says are either failing or are in need of improvement. What are the reasons schools fail, and what can you do about it?
We need to be more proactive: you don’t wait for the State Education Department to notify you that your children are failing. We should know way in advance and we should be coming to the situation with a response. Is it possible to support tougher teacher evaluations and still be supportive of teachers?
Great companies provide support, nurturing, and benefits for the people who work for them. And I believe this district will only be great if we provide tremendous
Andre Spencer. PHOTO PROVIDED
CITY: What are the two biggest problems facing students, parents, and the community in the Rochester school district?
Spencer: One would be the graduation rate. I think that is a significant challenge. Another challenge I think Rochester has is really giving students and parents a quality experience in all of its schools.
We can only do that if we make sure students are in attendance every day. The attendance piece is extremely important because we can set goals for graduation, but attendance is going to determine if kids are actually going to graduate. And I would add making sure that the kids are reading, and that they can read at the appropriate level. We have a high number of schools that the state says are either failing or in need of improvement. What are the reasons schools fail, and what can you do about it?
It’s important to look at a variety of factors regarding why a school isn’t doing well. A big piece is the allocation of resources. To give you an example: in Baltimore and Houston, the groups that are struggling the most with reading are our African American and Hispanic boys. When we began to allocate resources, we made sure that we targeted our resources at those two groups. African American and Hispanic boys have the highest dropout rate, the lowest graduation rate, and the highest retention rate. Those are the kids that typically are moved into special education for a variety reasons. Improperly allocating resources is what keeps schools from making the improvements they need to make. The second thing is having quality and effective teachers. Looking at the most important factor critical to a child’s education, it’s the teacher. We need to make sure the teachers we have in front of kids are trained, supported, heard, and that we’re providing them with the resources they need to do the job. We also have to make sure the exact same thing is happening with the principal. There has to be an effective leader at every campus, and that leader has to be visionary, and they have to understand how to use data to support where the resources need to be allocated. What is your view on teacher tenure? Is it something that should happen somewhat automatically? Or should it be reserved for the best teachers?
I’ve worked with unions and negotiated with bargaining units. And I think it’s important that we have fair evaluation systems for teachers, and that teachers are supported in the work that they do. We also need to hear from students, parents, and teachers, and get some
perspective. It’s really important to zero in on the performance level, and how to identify pathways. If we have a teacher who is doing extremely well, that teacher can be on one pathway. If we have a teacher who is struggling, we need to provide support for that teacher. A big problem that happens, especially in urban education, is we have a significant amount of turnover. With that turnover comes a lack of consistency, and we then have a breakdown. We have to make sure that we’re supporting teacher quality and teacher professional development. That doesn’t mean that every teacher will be effective. We’ll have some ineffective teachers and we’ll have to transition them out. When we’ve done all that we can do and provided all the support possible, but a teacher is still an ineffective teacher, we have to transition that teacher out. What would you do to increase parent participation?
To mobilize and engage parents starts with learning about what parents want to see: what’s important to parents? You can do that in a variety of ways. One way is through a parent advisory group. I work with my principals and schools on what is pretty much a survey sheet that spells out as a parent coming into this school, what would you like to engage in? How would you like to help? Parent involvement doesn’t always mean that they have to be in the building. Many working-class parents can’t come to the school mid-day to help out. But they can work to get resources directed into their school.

This is the first of an occasional series on climate change. It focuses on the effects that changing temperature and precipitation trends will have on ecosystems. Nature is about balance and climate change is already knocking finely tuned systems out of whack. Future installments will look at the effects on agriculture, the economy, and energy. Pity the painted turtle in our warming world. Anyone who’s spent time around a pond or marsh is familiar with the species, which is common in New York. They’re the turtles you’re likely to see basking on rocks near water. But like many reptiles, painted turtles are temperature sensitive, which means that warmer weather can have profound effects on them. In some cases, that’s not necessarily bad. For example: the turtles grow faster and reach sexual maturity sooner when temperatures are higher, says a landmark report on climate change published earlier this year by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority. But research cited in the report also says that warmer temperatures correlate with a higher ratio of female turtle hatchlings. And decreasing snow cover can reduce hatchlings’ winter survival rates. So even if the turtles are growing faster and reproducing earlier, hatchling sex ratios and winter survival rates would still affect the viability of turtle populations. Turtles are predators and prey, so their decline would, in turn, affect food webs. This is what climate change does: it knocks natural balances out of whack. Rising average temperatures and changing precipitation patterns are causing shifts in ecosystems and putting native species at risk. The painted turtle is only one example. But the climate is not the only issue that will affect painted turtle populations in the future: development is eliminating or fragmenting some of the turtles’ habitat. “Climate change, in many ways, makes a lot of the stresses on systems potentially an even bigger deal,” says Kristin France, a senior conservation scientist with the Nature Conservancy of Central and Western New York.

Consider invasive species and pests, which are already causing problems for native plants and animals. Changes in climate are enabling them to grow faster or to expand their range. Some insects are also emerging earlier, which has implications for the migratory birds that rely on the region as a stopping point on their journey. Historically, the influx of insects has been timed with the influx of birds that eat them, says June Summers, president of the Genesee Valley Audubon Society. “If we don’t supply them that food because we’re not in sync with their migration, they’re not going to make it,” she says. Earth has seen climate shifts before, but they’ve historically occurred over thousands of years. Now, however, temperatures are increasing at an unprecedented rate. Starting in the 1970’s, average temperatures across New York have been increasing by 0.6 degrees Fahrenheit each decade, says the NYSERDA report. Winter average temperatures are increasing by more than 1.1 degrees Fahrenheit each decade, it says. The same report says that by the 2050’s, annual average temperatures in the Rochester area could be 3 to 5 degrees higher than they were in the 1970’s. The projected increase rises to 4.5 to 8 degrees in the 2080’s. Human activities are driving these rather rapid changes, and the main culprit is carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions associated with fossil fuel consumption. Carbon dioxide levels are higher now than they’ve been at any time in the past 650,000 years, says a fact sheet from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. And now, the animals and plants that have evolved for current conditions over many generations are facing substantial environmental changes in less than a century.
The hitch is that nobody’s absolutely certain what those changes will be; each potential change hinges on other factors which, themselves, are variable. But scientists have developed many credible predictions of what’s likely to happen, given certain changes. Many of those predictions are based on trends that are already unfolding. The Rochester area is already seeing shifts in precipitation:
how intensely rain and snow falls and when. For example, researchers predict that the Rochester region will have more late-summer dry periods and droughts. And the area is already experiencing more downpours, which tend to be more intense than they were in the past. Eastern hemlocks, like the ones at the Gosnell Big Woods pre Downpours generate surges serve in Webster, could face a growing threat from the hemlock wooly adelgid due to the effects of climate change. of storm water runoff, which wash contaminants into streams, PHOTO by jeremy moule vital protection from predators: the previously ponds, and lakes.

one or both beaches to swimming, and algae are occasionally at the root of the decision. Algae clumps can be breeding grounds for bacteria, and high pathogen counts can lead to beach closings. Algae can also cloud up the water. Water clarity is another major factor in whether or not you can swim. There are a few factors driving algae growth in the lake: nutrient runoff is one, although local and state environmental and health officials have worked hard to address it. In late March, county health department analyst Charles Knauf told the audience at a Color Brighton Green forum that algae also tends to be worse in years without big winter storms to disrupt growth. The just-passed mild winter could mean that algae blooms will be a bigger problem than normal when the weather warms up, he said. The mild winter and warm early spring aren’t the result of global warming — at least not entirely. Weather patterns fluctuate from year to year, sometimes significantly. Longterm trends are what’s significant. But some experts say the warm winter and spring could be a preview of the region’s future. The Great Lakes’ winter ice cover has declined by more than 70 percent since the 1970’s, says a study published in the February edition of the Journal of Climate. The study says that Lake Ontario has lost 88 percent of its ice cover since 1973 — a rate higher than any of the other lakes. Because of the ice-cover trends, the Rochester area can expect heavier and wetter lake-effect snowstorms, says Mark Lowery, a climate policy analyst with the State Department of Environmental Conservation. “That’ll likely be the trend through about mid century,” he says. “But by mid century it will be generally too warm to have snow, and so those late-winter lake-effect snows will become later winter-early spring heavy rains,” Lowery says. And those rains will, in turn, lead to floods, which will pose threats to aquatic species’ habitat, he says. Other local water bodies are also impacted by climate changes, including Allens Creek, a
tributary of Irondequoit Creek. In 2010, the Town of Penfield commissioned a report on the conditions of Allens Creek, specifically streambank and erosion problems. Land-use changes in the creek’s watershed and development in its floodplains have contributed to those issues, the report says. But the report also says that changes in climate patterns, specifically higher intensity storms, have led to more flooding along the stream corridor. The flooding exacerbates erosion which, like runoff from higher intensity storms, will affect water quality.
Allens Creek is a cool water stream that provides habitat for some trout species as well as spawning salmon. The stream is an important and sensitive ecosystem. Trout are one of the first species to leave a water body when water quality suffers. In general, trout statewide are expected to suffer from the effects of climate change. Warmer air temperatures will translate to warmer water temperatures, forcing the fish out of their historical habitat. In turn, the trout will try to move to cooler water, perhaps in deeper areas of lakes, says the NYSERDA report. The brook trout is of special concern to state officials and angler groups. It’s the state fish and it is especially intolerant of warmer water. Brown and rainbow trout, which aren’t native to New York, will tolerate slightly warmer water than brook trout, though they too prefer cooler temperatures. At the least, climate change may knock some popular sport fish out of their previous habitat. But trout are an important predator fish, and it’s tough to know exactly how their absence will affect the natural balance. Their former habitats could become more attractive to warm-water fish like bass — which, like trout, are predators — and that could also change the ecological balance. Trout could also fall victim to cascading effects, where one problem facing one species snowballs into a group of problems affecting several other species. For example, trout are vulnerable to the loss of eastern hemlock trees, which often grow beside streams and shade the water, keeping it cool. The trees could help offset warmer average temperatures, but they are facing troubles of their own. The eastern hemlock is a common tree
in New York that in the Rochester area is often found mixed in with some common hardwoods. However, warmer summer temperatures — researchers expect more summer heat waves in the future — could stress the trees: weakening, damaging, or even killing them. Drier soils and more frequent droughts could also be harmful to the trees. But the trees are also vulnerable to the hemlock wooly adelgid, an invasive insect that attacks the trees and can eventually kill them. Stress from heat, drought, or other pests can hasten that process. The adelgid is native to Asia and, like other invasives that are wreaking havoc on this continent’s trees, has no North American predators. Infestations have been found in Monroe County, but they’ve been eradicated, says Linda Vera, a spokesperson for the Department of Environmental Conservation Region 8. The last reported infestation was four or five years ago, she says. Warmer temperatures, however, may make it easier for the hemlock wooly adelgid to
expand its range, making it a bigger threat. Other invasives, pests, and pathogens may find warmer temperatures favorable too, and could expand their ranges or populations. “One of the things that’s very helpful for areas that have fairly cold winters is that the freezing controls a number of invasive species,” says Peter Debes, a naturalist and vice chair of the Rochester group of the Sierra Club. Historically, Rochester’s winters have been cold enough to hold back or kill off invasive plants and insects. But warmer weather — especially winters without prolonged deep freezes — puts New York at risk for invaders. For example, diseasecarrying ticks may become more prevalent. Or new invasive plants that aren’t here yet, like kudzu vine, could move in and choke out native plants. Kudzu vine is already in Pennsylvania. One way that animals and plants might adapt to changing

climate and environment is to move. Literally. For example, species like brook trout that are at the southern part of their natural range may try to head north. But habitat fragmentation could make that difficult. It can be tough enough for a speedy deer to cross a road, let alone a turtle to cross an interstate. Environmental officials and organizations recognize this fact. The Nature Conservancy, for example, is trying to establish or improve connections between its larger preserves, says the Conservancy’s France. The Conservancy is especially focused on its Tug Hill Plateau and Adirondacks properties, since many species in those areas — plants and animals — are at the southern edge of their range. The state, too, is trying to improve habitat connections. State fish and wildlife staff are making sure that lower stream sections are connected to cooler upper-stream sections so that trout and other cold-water fish can move if they want to, says the NYSERDA report. Those efforts include designing culverts, bridges, and abutments that allow the fish to swim through. The state and environmental groups are also continuing efforts to address storm water runoff. And they’re scrutinizing land-use policies: development can contribute to runoff problems as well as habitat fragmentation. The Nature Conservancy is working with the state and other partners to diversify its forests and other important forest areas, so if one
tree species disappears, another native tree can replace it. That’s an approach that land stewards will have to take with other species, too. The NYSERDA report says that ecosystems will have to be managed to encourage biodiversity, not necessarily to “maintain indefinitely the exact mix of species present today.” Ultimately what’s necessary is a long-term approach centered on drastically reducing human-caused greenhouse gas emissions. The state is trying to do that through several efforts, whether it’s home energy efficiency programs or participation in a regional capand-trade program for power plant emissions. The current political climate makes it unlikely that any sort of serious, sustained national effort to cut greenhouse gas emissions will occur, however. If the government won’t act, there are changes people can make in their own lives: most being centered on reducing energy consumption. They aren’t new ideas: walking or biking instead of driving, hanging the laundry out to dry instead of using the dryer, and turning down the thermostat and minimizing the use of air conditioning. “We know there are a lot of things that people can do that involve a little bit more human effort that could seriously reduce the amount of carbon emissions we’re producing and reliance on the energy that’s contributing to that,” says the Sierra Club’s Debes.

If Rochester’s restaurant community has an old guard, Charlie Scanio, more popularly known as “Charlie Brown,” is one of its charter members. Having worked in what he describes as the “hospitality industry” since he was in high school, and as the original owner of that restaurant landmark Charlie Brown’s on Goodman Street, Scanio has been a fixture in the restaurant world for going on 50 years. Even catching up with him to get a quick summary of his life as a restaurateur is a challenge. He recently described himself as a “nonstop perpetualmotion person,” a “long-distance runner” who can — at an age when most folks are considering retiring — be found at his newest restaurant venture, Peaches Café in Webster, from early in the morning until “at least 9 or 10 each night.” To say that Scanio is a busy man is an understatement. To say that he’s good at what he does damns him with faint praise.
Peaches Café is something of a departure for Scanio. Charlie Brown’s humble digs on Goodman Street were always clean and pleasant, but not flashy. Peaches, on the other hand, has the look and feel of a restaurant in which every detail has been carefully considered and coordinated, where a vast space has been thoughtfully divided into a series of manageable dining rooms without making the whole seem cluttered. Its aesthetic may owe a bit to Scanio’s brief foray into the restaurant business in Las Vegas, where he went in 2007 after selling Charlie Brown’s. That business was, unfortunately, a victim of the Great Recession, but Vegas’ loss was Webster’s gain. Scanio returned to the area and opened Peaches in January 2009 after spending months micromanaging every aspect of the transformation of the space from what he described as “a vanilla box” into something warm, friendly, and appealing. At its heart, though, Peaches Café is still a family restaurant in the best sense of that term. With a voluminous menu embracing everything from breakfast through dinner, waitresses clad in identical black-and-white uniforms, a rotating display case full of carefully wrapped slices of pie (the wrap kept off the topping by a judiciously placed frilly toothpick), a glass counter up front full of candy and mints, and Scanio himself — always wearing a carefully pressed shirt and tie — at the front of the house playing the gracious and sometimes garrulous host, Peaches is an updated set piece and a model of its kind. On any weekend day, but

particularly on Sunday, Peaches Café is packed. The after-church crowd on a Sunday creates lines that snake out the door, and even on weekdays it’s not at all unusual to encounter a bit of a wait at lunchtime. It’s the sort of place that you’d expect to see members of the Rotary Club or perhaps members of the PTA or the local hospital auxiliary getting together for a working lunch (there’s a set of tables up on a riser at the rear of the dining room that often seem to get called into service for this sort of thing). What are they eating? Everything you can imagine. The first time I was presented with Peaches Café’s menu I nearly broke out laughing. The thing weighed about two pounds and it came with a couple of appendices — a list of specials, and a kids menu. It reminded me of the
screens that my friends and I used when we played Dungeons & Dragons in high school. In fact, when stood up on the table, the menu was so high that I couldn’t even see my companions over it. I found myself itching for a handful of colorful dice. I could have used them, too: the number of choices available to diners at Peaches is so bewildering that I could have used a good d-20 roll to narrow things down a bit. Peaches is known for breakfast food, and does an excellent job of serving up the kind of stick-to-your-arteries food that is so appealing on a weekend morning. With so many offerings featuring either gravy or hollandaise, it’s almost mandatory to throw caution (and your diet) aside and dig in. A plate of sausage gravy and biscuits ($6.99) is a good, if somewhat basic, introduction to the good things Peaches has to offer. Creamy, and studded with bits of zesty, meaty sausage, the gravy is ladled over a plate of flaky biscuits so full of butter that it seems a miracle that they hold together at all. More imaginative is something like the Cordon Bleu Skillet: three eggs over easy atop a mix of home-fries, diced chicken breast, and ham smothered in Swiss cheese and hollandaise ($7.99). You may find yourself groaning and vowing never to eat again after you finish it (and finish it you will, even though the portion is easily enough for two or even three to share), but the combination is frankly addicting and entirely wonderful. If you want something a bit on the lighter side, one of Peaches’ scrambles might be the way to go, if only because they tend to be topped only with cheese rather than cheese and hollandaise. When I was a boy, I used to think that the club sandwich was the height of sophistication. But over the years I’ve been bitterly disappointed by soggy, floppy, ill-cut versions of this king of sandwiches. At Peaches, consummate restaurant veteran Scanio gets it just right. Starting with excellent bread toasted just so (he’ll happily tell you that it costs him 23 cents a slice), and layering on both ham and turkey cut right from the bone, crispy bacon, and surprisingly good tomatoes along with the usual lettuce and a generous quantity of mayonnaise, this is hands down the Platonic ideal of the club sandwich ($8.29). Served with house-made, thick-cut potato chips and a tart pickle, this club is the standard against which all others should be measured.

Swallowing Cookie Monster [ review ] by frank de blase
James Hunter and Jesse Dee made for a
dream co-bill Tuesday, April 10, at The Club at Water Street. Dee got things rolling with just his guitar and his broken heart. I can’t quite figure out his haircut, but the man can sing as sorrowful as a toddler with melted ice cream. After that James Hunter commandeered the bandstand like he owned the joint. Hunter is a master vocalist in the way he works around a phrase, and as a guitarist the man is aces. He worked his Les Paul Jr. into emitting a mumble-sting full of percussive energy and urgency. He dug in deep into his album “The Hard Way” and teased the crowd with a handful of newbies in the same mambo/shuffle vein. As I was watching Cannibal Corpse pummel the crowd Friday night at Water Street Music Hall, a question came to mind: if the singer forgot any of the words, would anyone notice? The vocals sounded as if the frontman swallowed Cookie Monster. But trust me, it fit the overall sound. This band is pure rhythmic mayhem. Its riffs are so in sync that
the twin guitar, bass, drums, and vocal onslaught takes on the feel of a singular, unified percussive output. It may be a bit much to take, but the band is relentless as it plays incredibly heavy and fast. It was so fast, it was slow. It was so loud, it was silent. The head-bangers reveled and collided like cars at an intersection with green lights all around. And they sang along to words that were anyone’s guess. St. Phillip’s Escalator made it back up to the Rochester floor with a packed and sweaty show at The Bug Jar Saturday night. The band remains rough and raw despite the new — and tres cool — material creeping into the set. This band has always played with a bluesy bigness, not quite as out of control as the MC-5 or as loud as Blue Cheer, but definitely from the same church. It was loud but appropriate and discernible. The show peaked for me when the trio pulled off thundering versions of “Tobacco Road” and “Ramblin’ Rose.”

From stripper poles to the octagon A Thousand Shades of Cold reverbnation.com/atsoc [ INTERVIEW ] By Frank De Blase
Since 2005, A Thousand Shades of Cold has dominated the local music scene with a sound straight out of the progressive dark. And where others in the genre lean into a post-numetal sound, ATSOC teeters on the precipice — yet it does not succumb to the stock thunder and scream. ATSOC endures as a unique, fivepiece powerhouse. Members Jake Gissin (vocals), Juan Calixto (drums), McCue Greene (bass), Dan Vanderostyn (guitar), and Randy McLeod (guitar) embrace the dynamic darkness with a progressive edge. They’ve committed the sound to disc twice; on the first self-titled album and ATSOC’s
latest, “Darken The Daylight,” which is slated for national re-release on Spectra Records this July. On top of that, the band is hobnobbing with ultimate fighters and video-game geeks. Gissin and Calixto recently came down to CITY to brag and explain. An edited transcript of the interview follows. CITY: Did A Thousand Shades of Cold arise from the ashes of other bands? Jake Gissin: The band formed in the summer
of 2005. Me and Juan had worked together before in bands that never came to fruition. Juan Calixto: They just sort of led up to A Thousand Shades of Cold. What about this line-up clicked? Gissin: It’s just that everybody brought
something to the table, the guitarists were bringing riffs we wanted to use, and Juan was playing the drums we wanted to hear, and I was coming up with some vocal ideas everyone was happy with. So we just ran with it. Calixto: There was a lot of room to grow. We all saw the potential. ATSOC is a heavy outfit, sometimes considered metal. You don’t agree? Gissin: We’re not really
a metal band. People say we’re a metal band, but we’re really not. I just think nowadays metal is a term that’s thrown around loosely. So is rock ’n’ roll. Gissin: Exactly. I
consider us really heavy alternative rock with progressive influences. So it’s easier to say metal… Gissin: It kind of sucks,
Local band A Thousand Shades of Cold has recently had several of its songs licensed by the Ultimate Fighting Championship, and will have its music used in video games. PHOTO PROVIDED 16 City APRIL 18-24, 2012
because you want to say something quick, but then you get lumped in these categories.
The heaviness has paid off commercially though, right? Calixto: Yeah. We just started working with
the Ultimate Fighting Championship. They wanted bands to contribute to all their live events and they picked up eight of our songs. It’s cool that the UFC is picking nonmainstream bands. What was the reasoning behind this? Calixto: It’s just a mixture of good music
in general. I guess they see the potential and gave us a shot. Our manager, Tommy [Casserino], knows their licensing guy and pitched us on a whim.
Did you guys specifically write material for the UFC Gissin: The only time we’ve written a song
with something else in mind — other than just writing a song — was for this TV pilot about a DJ at a strip club. What happened to that song? Calixto: That’s one of the eight UFC
So what’s good for the stripper pole is good for the octagon…and the gaming console. Gissin: Yeah. We just licensed music to
“Supremacy MMA,” it’s a mixed-martial-arts fighting game; it’s on Xbox 360, PS3… What makes this band so dark in the light of its budding success? Gissin: Our music is our release. We may not
seem that aggressive, but everybody’s going to have a side like that to them. And this is our outlet. We just let it breathe, we let it go. That’s where all our frustrations come out. That’s why sometimes our music is angry or down-driven or depressing at times…just lots of energy. We bounce around between slow grooves and intense, high-speed stuff. Calixto: I definitely think it’s a good fit with aggressive stuff like UFC. So as the band continues to grow, how will that change the sound? Or will it at all? Gissin: Just more progressive. It’s kind of
like expanding what we already do. We’re not really throwing any curveballs; we’re just refining what we do.

POP/ROCK | Sports
Sure, I’m biased; I love the Rochester rock ’n’ roll. But I challenge anyone to find me a more perfect pop band than Sports. This band embraces pop from the no-wave era — that period between punk and new wave that had the former’s anger and intensity and the latter’s hooks and fun. The comparisons to Elvis Costello are unavoidable, what with the band’s Attractions-style instrumentation and singer Ian Proper’s halting phrasing and drama. Son of the Sun, The Admirers, and Josh Netsky add to the fun. Sports performs Saturday, April 21, 8 p.m. at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $7-$9. 454-2966, bugjar.com. — BY FRANK DE BLASE Naked Grey.

Barry Snyder, Rose Grace, and Elinor Freer (left to right) practice Mozart’s Concerto for Three Pianos, which will be performed Sunday. PHOTO BY PALOMA CAPANNA
Three is a magic number Rochester Chamber Orchestra David Fetler, conductor w/Barry Snyder, Elinor Freer, Rose Grace, pianos Sunday, April 22 Hochstein School of Music & Dance, 50 N. Plymouth Ave. 7 p.m. | $10-$25 | 442-9778, rochesterchamberorchestra.org [ PREVIEW ] BY PALOMA CAPANNA
How often do even hear of pianists performing on three concert-grand pianos during the same work? The odds are few, considering that the musical choices may be limited to Mozart, Bach, George Antheil, Morton Feldman, Steve Reich, and some Stravinsky transcriptions. On April 22, the audience at the Hochstein School of Music & Dance will be treated to the rare sight and sound of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Concerto for Three Pianos and Orchestra in F Major, K. 242 (also known as “The Lodron Concerto”). Performing the first piano part will be Barry Snyder; the second, Elinor Freer; and the third, Rose Grace. The Rochester Chamber Orchestra will be under the baton of conductor David Fetler. 22 City april 18-24, 2012
“It’s an early piece and shows some of the great genius of Mozart,” says Snyder, a pianist, and a professor of piano at the Eastman School of Music since 1970. Snyder won three prizes at the 1966 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition: the silver medal, the Pan American Union Award, and the Chamber Music Prize. Snyder understands the modern reputation of Mozart’s music, particularly among young piano students. “It is relatively simple music. It can be pretty easy. It’s not as dramatic as, maybe, Shostakovich,” says Snyder. “But with Mozart, it’s the little things that come into play, the musical jokes, and those are maybe not so apparent when you’re young.” For second pianist Elinor Freer, interest in the concerto is not a problem. She’s an unabashed fan of Mozart. “I’m biased because I happen to think Mozart is one of the greatest composers ever,” says Freer. “Anything he wrote — he’s just such a genius. Even his most simplistic pieces, or his so-called lesser works, you’re already starting at an incredibly high level.” Also an accomplished pianist, Freer holds degrees with honors from the Cleveland Institute of Music and the University of Southern California. Freer was awarded a performer’s diploma from the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht (Netherlands), and
among her European performances is the Concertgebouw (Amsterdam). Rose Grace, the third pianist for the concerto, is drawn to the second movement of the concerto, which she describes as “charming” and “revealing of [Mozart’s] inner soul.” Grace and Freer will consider minor rearranging of their parts to make the third piano a more active role, perhaps, for example, sharing the credenzas. As Grace pointed out, in Mozart’s day, scores were not viewed with the exactitude they are today; musicians routinely rearranged scores to suit themselves and their instruments. Grace is fond of Mozart concerti, and has written about them during her academic career. She received her doctorate in piano performance from the Eastman School of Music, her masters of arts in musicology from the University of Chicago, and a bachelors of music in piano performance and musicology from the Oberlin Conservatory. Now a teacher at Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach, Florida, Grace has launched a publicschool music-outreach program. Freer is anticipating that the three pianists
will have to take the inherent volume of the modern concert-grand piano into consideration when balancing the sound of the pianos with the orchestra. But, she points
out that Mozart was “very smart” when he prepared the score, because in many sections the three pianos play without orchestra. Freer says, “The score takes care of the balancing.” While the naming of this work as the “Lodron Concerto” could not be singlesourced, various resources brought together tell the story. In the 1770’s, Mozart traveled from one location in Europe to the next to perform concerts, teach students, and win commissions for new works. At the time, classical music for hire to the nobility was the bread and butter of many a classical musician, including Mozart. In 1776, when Mozart was just 20 years old, the Countess Maria Antonia Lodron commissioned Mozart to write a piece for herself and two of her daughters, Aloisia and Josepha. The Countess lived with her husband and eight children at the grand Palazzo Lodron of Nogaredo, where a weekly salon with an amateur orchestra performed on Sundays. The three instruments for the original concert would have been much different than the modern 9’ concert grand pianos, each weighing more than 1000 pounds, made with metal harps of cast iron. Instead, the “piano” instrument of Mozart’s day would have been the “fortepiano,” a predecessor to the modern “pianoforte,” or, “piano.” The fortepiano might only have weighed 100-150 pounds, being made primarily of wood. As Grace points out, “The orchestra will be playing on modern instruments, too; not Baroque or early period instruments with less volume.” Just as Countess Lodron and her daughters would have been knowledgeable of each other’s skills and sensitivities, Snyder, Freer, and Grace know each other as pianists. Snyder taught both Freer and Grace earlier in their careers. “We’re three individuals with slightly different personalities,” says Snyder. “How much each of our approaches to the piece will be the same is a question we’ll have to work out.” Snyder, Freer, and Grace will begin rehearsals at the Eastman School of Music, where special accommodations are being made to bring together three pianos, before the trio shifts over to the pianos at Hochstein. Freer explained that there was a certain amount of logistical challenge in planning the performance as venues were sought with three concert grands, plus a stage that could also accommodate an orchestra. In separate interviews with City, the one word used by all three pianists to describe the Mozart triple piano concerto was “spectacle.” “These three and four monster piano concertos are so unusual that there’s an element of spectacle, acrobatics; the pianists interacting, tossing phrases between the pianos,” says Freer. “It’s incredibly exciting. Whether you are young or old, this piece is attractive.”

Life in the back seat “Leaving Iowa” Through May 13 Downstairs Cabaret Theatre, 3450 Winton Place $25-$36 | 325-4370, downstairscabaret.com [ REVIEW ] BY ERIC REZSNYAK
While considering “Leaving Iowa,” the new comedy at the Downstairs Cabaret Theatre’s Winton Place location, the words that kept coming back to me were “quaint,” “American,” “identifiable,” and “universal.” The DCT website references a review that places the play in “Mitch Albom territory.” That’s a good summation of the show. It’s a wholesome, relatable piece that will seem familiar to anyone who ever burned his lower thighs on the Naugahyde-covered back seat of a station wagon on a long car trip, bored out of his mind, besieged by irritating siblings, and trying to parse the logic of squabbling parents. Although sometimes lacking in laughs, the comedy about family road trips has its charms. Perhaps fittingly, it finds its way as it gets closer to the end. “Leaving Iowa” starts with a quintessential American middle-class family in the car on its annual summer vacation, dealing with those quintessential American road-trip issues. Dad has no 26 City april 18-24, 2012
idea where he is. Brother and Sister whine and yell and get one everyone’s nerves. Mom tries desperately to hold on to order and sanity. Quickly, however, the show slips ahead in time, and the focus shifts to the now-adult son, who undertakes an entirely different road trip. Through flashes of adventures in both the family’s past and present we get a story of a young man struggling to balance familial obligations and personal goals. And that is where the play succeeds most, with the emotional undercurrents we can all understand. The circular ending to the show is a lovely final touch. Throughout the first act of the play, I assumed that the piece was autobiographical; all of the situations, humor, and characters felt very real to me. But a look at the bios of the co-writers Tim Clue and Spike Manton — neither of whom are from Iowa — suggest that this is in fact a work of fiction, informed by their own personal experiences. That the story is so natural and believable is a credit to them, and to the cast. Unfortunately that compliment is a bit of a double-edged sword. The family presented in the play is very much a typical American family, which is to say that it is also at times dull, irritating, and loud — very, very loud. There is a lot of yelling in this play, and while that fits the characters and situations (lots of families
as Don, the son. Schario is a likable lead, brings good energy to both the adult and child parts of his character, and delivers flawless, natural line reads. Richard St. George plays the unnamed father with a mix of excitement, pride, and that kind of gooberish energy that makes kids bury their palms in their hands and moan, “Oh, DAD.” As Mom, Davida Bloom veers between stern and chipper in the past portions of the show and slightly befuddled in the present. Kara Minute is given fairly little to do as Sis. Having only brothers, I had to ask my companion if sisters really are that whiny and annoying, and he replied in the affirmative. So good job, I guess. (I should clarify: Minute is not annoying; she simply does a good job bringing those aspects of the character to life.) Perhaps because much of the humor in the show is understated, the two supporting actors —Jackie Schram and Bradley J. Sumner — play their multiple incidental characters extremely large. Like, dialed-to-13 large. Schram and Sumner are both talented, and when they’re more reserved, such as when playing a couple of Kansas hog farmers, they are naturally charming. But in other scenes the overacting is just too much. During the portion where Sumner played a Civil War re-enactor, he was yelling so loudly that I actually felt assaulted. The co-direction by Eddie Urish and Tim Clue is slick; scenes that change from place to place and time to time flow smoothly from one to another. (They do frequently shatter the illusion that the cast is in a car when characters get up and move around, but given how much of the play occurs in a station wagon, that’s preferable to four people sitting transfixed on crates.) There are countless lighting and sound cues in this show, all of which went off without a hitch. And the projections used consistently throughout the play were well designed and implemented, and made the show stronger rather than distracting from the proceedings. I also enjoyed the Iowa facts that flashed on the screen prior to curtain time. Did you know Iowa has the highest literacy rate in the country? Perhaps it’s because all those kids have to pass the time doing something on those long summer car trips.

LECTURE | WALLACE SHAWN The name Wallace Shawn might not be immediately recognizable, but as soon as you see or hear the actor, author, intellectual, and humorist, you’ll realize you’ve known his work for years. Shawn not only wrote the well-regarded “My Dinner with Andre,” but he played unforgettable roles in such cult films as “The Princess Bride” and “Clueless,” is a recurring character on the CW teen soap “Gossip Girl,” and is a go-to voice actor for Pixar, having put his unmistakable pipes to use in animated films like “Toy Story,” “The Incredibles,” and “Monsters, Inc.” Shawn speaks Thursday, April 19, as part of the Rochester Arts & Lectures series. The lecture will take place at 7:30 p.m. at the Downtown United Presbyterian Church (121 N. Fitzhugh St.). A limited number of standing-room-only tickets will be available at the door for $15.

A new classic in horror [ REVIEW ] by George Grella

Honoring that tradition, in fact, the group meets a classic rural degenerate on the way to the cabin, a hostile, tobacco-chewing yokel who insults them and promises some cryptic punishment for their youth and high spirits. The other narrative intercut with the central story involves a group of scientists and technicians who operate in some huge, sterile factory, chatting amiably about mundane matters and some mysterious competitors around the globe, whom they watch on a battery of television screens. They also monitor and, as the picture slowly develops, manipulate the behavior of the young people in the cabin, more or less forcing them into various hideous scenarios, all constructed to end in the usual terror, mutilation, and dismemberment. The scenario they create for this particular group involves resurrecting a collection of dead rustics they call the Zombie Redneck Torture Family, who demonstrate that they richly deserve the appellation. As the family attacks the students, the army of employees viewing the mayhem on the television screens celebrates its success with a boozy party; they also watch a series of parallel scenarios from all over the world, which duplicate the familiar plots and characters of other horror flicks from Spain, Germany, South America, and most characteristically, Japan. The techies clearly enjoy the hell out of the spectacle and chat enthusiastically about their

accomplishment, particularly savoring the way they outdid their competitors around the globe. Not unexpectedly, their grand project begins to disintegrate as some of the students, despite a whole series of frightening episodes, manage to escape the attacks of the rednecks and fight back. Ultimately the two parallel plots intersect in a bizarre apocalypse that erupts into a really wonderful orgy of destruction featuring an amazing assortment of menaces and monsters of every kind from virtually every known horror film. Within this rich and fantastic series of events the endlessly inventive script provides a genuine sense of character in both groups, with the offhand ordinariness of the technicians contrasting with the melodramatic exaggeration of the horror plot. The cast at the cabin consists of a group of mostly unfamiliar performers who overact appropriately and scream with great professionalism. The most well-known cast members play the techies — Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford handle their parts with absolute conviction, and Sigourney Weaver, in her stern schoolmistress mode, turns up at the end to explain the whole incredible mess. “The Cabin in the Woods” includes references to a grand anthology of horror, which should delight any student of the genre. Unlike most of its kind, without parodying its tradition, it sparkles with witty allusions and funny dialogue, infusing a good deal of ironic self-awareness into its situations. A most unusual movie, it will probably (and deservedly) become a classic.
It’s the oldest continually held short-film festival in the world, and it calls our humble little city home. The Rochester International Film Festival — sometimes known as Movies on a Shoestring — marks its 54th year this weekend at the Dryden Theatre with another stellar lineup of pocket-sized narratives, documentaries, and animated pieces from around the world, all separated into four unique programs for your viewing pleasure. Admission, as always, is free, but donations are gratefully accepted. For more details, including the complete roster of films, pop on over to rochesterfilmfest.org. But first, a quick preview...
Thursday 8 p.m.
An unsupervised new hire in the Department of Human Fate needs to learn the ropes quickly in “Lunch Breaks,” a nicely rendered cartoon about a construction worker, his elusive sandwich, and the risks of the job. Iranian filmmaker Jafar Pashaee’s twisty and challenging “Depth of Field” tries to keep up with two lookalike footballers as they switch identities

in order to keep an eye on their respective women. In the intriguing French entry “Catharsis,” Alexandre, an aspiring director, destroys the fourth wall — and quite possibly his relationship with his frustrated girlfriend — in an effort to process what’s real and what isn’t when it looks as though he’s become part of a film himself.
Friday 8 p.m.
“Our only hope is to find the beat that moves us,” the narrator tells us in the heavyhanded but huge-hearted “My Angel, My Hero,” which stars director Faizan Sheikh as a former banker who becomes a street dancer and unwittingly changes the life of a young man with Parkinson’s Disease. In the dreamy drama “Luz,” a car-crash victim’s subconscious memories allow him to come to grips with his mother’s untimely death. The concise (and concisely titled) “There’s A Dead Crow Outside” wittily illustrates the life cycle through squishy sounds and animation that is black, white, and red all over. Benoit Blanc writes, directs, and stars in the dark comedy “Oops!” as a man, despondent over an apparently lost love, whose myriad suicide attempts go hilariously wrong.
Saturday 4 p.m.
The award-winning documentary “Carbon For Water,” by Evan Abramson and Carmen Elsa Lopez, chronicles the efforts of one company to bring potable drinking water to a village in Kenya’s Western Province, a powerful initiative that has implications that reach even beyond the basic human right to good health. “What’s my mother gonna say?” one woman wonders in “The Miracle of Life,” a sly French satire about four neighbors who all wake up very pregnant and understandably puzzled about it. A young Latino man who desperately wants to assimilate learns to embrace his traditional culture in Gloriana Fonseca-Malavasi’s touching “Historias,” which draws its inspiration
from Central American legend. Irish filmmaker Steve Woods employs the art and science of pixelation in the striking “Dutch Darkness,” which brings painterly images to life in the story of a woman, her maid, and the mysterious contents of a closet. Excellent performances highlight “Face,” a drama set in WWI-era France as a young boy waits for the return of his soldier father.
Saturday 8 p.m.
The American dream threatens to become a nightmare for a young immigrant in Brian Aramayo’s overacted but effective “Intercambios” once Cristina crosses paths with a bank teller who may be taking advantage of her. “Crescendo” boasts splendid period design as the story of an unhappy mother-to-be veers in an unexpected direction following the birth of her gifted son. What makes Jim Ed Wills’ “Trashland” worthwhile is the wildly inventive found-object surroundings of a grumpy old trash sculptor and the clichéd moppet who steals his heart. Belgian filmmaker Joachim Weissmann, who opened RIFF 2011 with “Le Négociant,” closes this year’s installment with “Kerosene,” an ambitious suspense flick about a young woman whose efforts to get over her fear of flying take an interesting turn... then another. But of the films I got to preview, two stood out. The festival opener, Agnès Caffin’s delightfully wry “Shéhérazade and the Kosher Delight” (Thursday), stars gorgeous Gallic treasure Fanny Ardant as a sharp-tongued Jewish restaurant owner bucking against hiring an illegal Palestinian immigrant to work in her kitchen. And the lovely feel-good drama “Prunelle and Mélodie” (Friday), by writer-director Mathieu Simonet, tags along with two best friends, one blind and one deaf, as they overcome limitations and apprehensions to embark on the road trip of their literal dreams.
THE NAKED ISLAND
Wednesday, April 18, 8 p.m. Kaneto Shindo called this almost wordless, documentary-style film a “visual poem” about the hard lives of a family scratching out a living on a barren and remote island in Japan’s Inland Sea. Directed, written, and produced by Shindo, this moving tribute to the human will to survive is considered his definitive work. (Hadaka no shima, Kaneto Shindo, Japan 1960, 96 min.)
MR. & MRS. SMITH Movies for movie lovers, 6 nights a week. Kaneto Shindo
Sunday, April 22, 2 p.m. Alfred Hitchcock and screwball comedy? Indeed! The match of director to genre might seem odd at first, but the master did possess a wicked sense of humor. Carole Lombard and Robert Montgomery wonder what life would’ve been like had they not married, only to find out that, thanks to a bureaucrat’s error, they were never wed! While the free-spirited Lombard faces the prospect of singleness with a smile, Montgomery just can’t stay away. (Alfred Hitchcock, US 1941, 95 min.)

499 Beach Avenue
Enjoy a home with beach access and views of Lake Ontario without the price of a waterfront property. The home at 499 Beach Avenue right in the heart of Charlotte is walking distance to what will feel like a vacation. The “Secret Sidewalk” across the street allows quick access to the beach on a hot summer day. Walk along the beach to Ontario Beach Park and enjoy an Abbott’s ice cream cone while strolling along the pier. After a day at the beach, relax with a book on the front porch while glancing up to see boats on the lake. The enclosed front porch is a large bright Florida room complete with a ceiling fan and many windows, perfect for warm summer nights. The rest of the home is filled with oak and pine floors, wooden bead board and wide door and window moldings. Each room has a ceiling fan to keep cool in the summer and radiators to warm the house in the winter. Each of these features come together to give the house a warm, summer cottage feel. The first floor consists of a wide open living room with large windows, bead board ceiling, oak floors and an electric fireplace. A small nook with a glass door tucked beneath the stairway provides a special space to showcase cherished items. Beyond the living room is a combination full bathroom/laundry room to the right and a large dining room to the left. Just off the
dining room is a small, peaceful room that’s perfect for an office. Located at the back of the house, the kitchen features modern cupboards, counters, a deep sink and recessed lighting. The cozy backyard features a garden that can be admired from the kitchen or the back porch. The garden leads to a private alley for parking that is plowed and maintained by the City. In the second floor hallway, a chandelier hanging from the hardwood ceiling welcomes one to a full bathroom and four bedrooms that add a unique charm to the home. One bedroom is completely surrounded in wood and boasts a sleeping porch that gives an amazing view of the lake. The master bedroom has extra storage areas that are hidden in the bead board walls. Another bedroom is long and bright with cathedral ceilings and a loft that allows for storage. A full attic and basement complete this charming, cottage style home built in 1900. The 1,913 square foot property is listed at $154, 900 and includes deeded beach access.

[ rehabilitating mr. wiggles ] BY neil swaab
[ news of the weird ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD As the U.S. government’s role in health care is debated, the French government’s role was highlighted in February with a report on Slate.com about France’s guarantee to new mothers of “10 to 20” free sessions of “la reeducation perineale” (vaginal re-toning to restore the pre-pregnancy condition, a “cornerstone of French post- natal care,” according to Slate). The sessions involve yoga-like calisthenics to rebuild muscles and improve genital flexibility. Similar procedures in the U.S. not only are not government entitlements, but are almost never covered by private insurance, and besides, say surgeons, the patients who request them do so almost entirely for aesthetic reasons. The French program, by contrast, is said to be designed not only for general health but to strengthen women for bearing more children, to raise the birth rate.
Compelling Explanations — Drill, Baby, Drill: U.S. Rep. Louie
Gohmert of Texas may have been joking, but according to a February Washington Post story, he seemed serious at a Natural Resources Committee hearing when searching for yet more reasons why the U.S. should support oil drilling in Alaska. Caribou, he said, are fond of the warmth of the Alaskan pipeline. “So when they want to go on a date, they invite each other to head over to the pipeline.” That mating ritual, Rep. Gohmert concluded, is surely responsible for a recent tenfold increase in the local caribou population. — In assigning a bail of only $20,000, the judge in Ellisville, Miss., seemed torn about whether to believe that Harold Hadley is a terrorist -- that is, did Hadley plant a bomb at Jones County Junior College? In February, investigators told WDAM-TV that the evidence against
Hadley included a note on toilet paper on which he had written in effect, “I passed a bomb in the library.” However, no bomb was found, and a relative of Hadley’s told the judge that Hadley often speaks of breaking wind as “passing a bomb.” The case is continuing. — John Hughes, 55, was fined $1,000 in February in Butte, Mont., after pleading guilty to reckless driving for leading police on a 100-mph-plus chase starting at 3:25 a.m. After police deflated his tires and arrested him, an officer asked why he had taken off. Said Hughes, “I just always wanted to do that.” — Melvyn Webb, 54, was acquitted in March of alleged indecent behavior on a train. An eight-woman, four-man jury in Reading (England) Crown Court found Webb’s explanation entirely plausible -- that he was a banjo player and was “playing” some riffs underneath the newspaper in his lap. “(S)ometimes I do, with my hands, pick out a pattern on my knees,” he said. (On the other hand, the female witness against him had testified that Webb “was facing me, breathing heavily and snarling.”)
Fine Points of the Law
Internal Revenue Service is battling the estate of art dealer Ileana Sonnabend over the value of a Robert Rauschenberg stuffed bald eagle that is part of his work “Canyon.” IRS has levied taxes as if the work were worth $65 million, but the Sonnabend estate, citing multiple auction-house appraisals, says the correct value is “zero,” since it is impossible to sell the piece because two federal laws prohibit the trafficking of bald eagles, whether dead or alive. (Despite the law, IRS says, there is a black market for the work, for example, by a “recluse billionaire in China (who) might want to buy it and hide it.”)
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 39 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): A sudden attraction will not come with all the bells and whistles you hoped for. Time is on your side, and someone less outgoing but more endearing is closer than you think. Let love grow slowly. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Get involved in new pastimes or groups of interest, and mingle with people who share your concerns. Finding common ground with someone will lead to an interesting partnership that encompasses both business and pleasure. A short trip will help determine a new lifestyle.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’ll attract plenty of partners, but the ones who interest you most will not be your best choice. Stay away from unpredictable, overbearing, forceful individuals trying to possess you and control your every move. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You may be enamored of someone, but before you get involved, find out his or her status. A secret affair will not satisfy your needs for very long. Take an all-or-nothing approach to love, and spare getting involved with someone who is unavailable.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Love and romance are highlighted. Someone unusual but with plenty to offer will fit into your world perfectly. A change of location, a pleasure trip or getting involved in a new project will bring you in contact with a variety of potential partners. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t mistake aggressive action for love. Ulterior motives are likely to be behind someone’s chummy attitude. Keep your guard up until you determine what’s expected of you in return. Be ready to back away if any financial implications
surface. Protect your assets and possessions. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Put everything you’ve got into love, happiness and working toward a relationship that is based on equality, common interests and plenty of chemistry. A commitment can be made and you can move toward greater domestic security. Now is not the time to procrastinate. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Someone from your past will come back into your life. You can reestablish a relationship, but do so slowly. This time, build a strong friendship and see where it goes. Maturity should
help you make a decision that protects you from disillusionment and disappointment. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t believe everything you hear, and don’t make promises you cannot keep. When it comes to love, if someone can offer you what you want in a long-term relationship, don’t mince words -- take action. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’ll be attracted to someone who is fickle in nature. Try to see past the games before you sign up for heartache. Stick to less flirtatious, more established partners interested in achieving a long lasting relationship
instead of a one-night stand. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’ve got what it takes to attract someone looking for the same quality of life you desire. Be willing to experiment with love and to take an unusual approach to relationships. Make a mind connection first and foremost, and the physical will fall into place. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Question anyone who comes on to you aggressively. Being captivated by someone’s dominance will lead to an unequal relationship. Falling in love with money will end in dissatisfaction. Don’t make a foolish mistake for all the wrong reasons.
