of non-profits, such as the NRA. The NRA is a grassroots organization (not a front for gun manufacturers, as many like to claim), and is a way for ordinary citizens to fight to protect their Second Amendment rights. Thus, the idea that corporate political speech could be limited by laws was really a way to limit the free speech of regular citizens. The only way regular citizens can engage in speech on the same level as big companies is through forming organizations, often structured as corporations, that can raise money to spend on ads and fighting for the cause. The NRA does this regarding gun rights. I am unsure regarding this current decision, and I don’t believe there shouldn’t be any laws regarding control of money in politics (for example unlimited donations to individual politicians). But not all legislation meant to control money in politics has been good, and if anything has been shown to do the opposite. (For example: McCain-Feingold – which Citizens United struck down – which limited organizations like the NRA in their ability to engage in political speech during campaigns). For those who don’t like the NRA, keep in mind it’s the principle that is important, i.e. the ability of people, via grassroots organizations, to fight for causes and rights that they consider important. Other such issues can be LGBTQ rights, environmental issues, abortion rights, privacy rights, etc.

Press politicians to act on climate
Great article by Jeremy Moule on the Sierra Club lecture dealing with voluntary plans on lowering local emissions that are causing climate change (“Climate Change: It’s All Up to You.”) The article rightly advises that local governments will take voluntary action to reduce greenhouse emissions and promote climate change adaptations when constituents “push their elected officials.” The same is true for Congress, which has dragged its feet for decades because constituents have not pushed them hard enough. The most recent IPCC report says global emissions can be reduced enough to curb climate, and can be controlled at little cost, if governments act immediately. Waiting longer will drive up costs. Congress won’t act until readers push their representatives to support climate change legislation. Please urge Representative Tom Reed to acknowledge the hardships that climate change will present to his constituents, and to support national climate change legislation.

The benefits of Citizens United
Citizens United did not do damage; it ended what was a blatantly antifree speech law (“Democracy for Sale,” Urban Journal). The original purpose of so-called “campaign finance reform” was to restrict the ability of the National Rifle Association to run ads critical of politicians during campaigns. Democrats saw it as a way to get gun control-oriented politicians elected without the NRA being able to run ads critical of them. What everyone forgets is that corporations are not just big companies, but a legal structure that is also used by a great deal 2 CITY

Smoked out at bus shelters
Every morning I visit my mother in hospice at St. John’s Nursing Home on South Avenue. I take the bus to and from. Many times I am forced to inhale second-hand smoke from St. John’s employees who use the bus shelter as a weather-safe place to smoke. I do not smoke and I have never smoked, and it is inconsiderate and a danger to my health for these employees to be smoking in my space. But they are not doing anything “wrong,” because RTS has no smoking policy for their bus shelters. Inconsiderate smokers who fill these shelters with smoke, endangering non-smoking bus
patrons’ rights, can and do do this. The bus shelters become littered with smoke butts, ironically, because these employees are not allowed to bring the negative effect to those where they work. St. John’s doesn’t even have a place for these employees to put their cigarette butts, and in fact doesn’t even have a garbage litter can there. The bus company should place “no smoking” signs on all bus shelters, for the health and safety of its non-smoking patrons. GEORGE ROSSI
The costs of the tech park
On locating the Science, Technology, and Advanced Manufacturing Park in rural Genesee County: Not to mention,
if 1000 news jobs are created (which I doubt) you will now need schools, fire, police, etc. for over 1000 new people. I highly doubt the tax revenue generated will cover those costs. If this project was built at either the Eastman Kodak site in Rochester or on an old brownfield in Buffalo, there are already all these services in place. MICHAEL AMADORI
This textbook example of location inefficiency makes the RIT campus or Xerox Webster look brilliant by comparison. The people at GCEDC in Genesee County are on a huge and undeserved ego trip, and the leaders of Rochester-Monroe have allowed the tail to wag the dog. The reasons given for building STAMP in remote Alabama are all easily refuted. No available cheap land in Monroe County? BS; ever been to Ogden? No cheap power and water in Monroe County? BS; all it takes is the governor’s signature. Chip fab plants need to be far from infrastructure that generates vibrations? Bullpucky; take a look at Intel in Hillsboro, Oregon. For the money we’re throwing away on STAMP, we could have assembled a fine site in Monroe County, closer to the people, the homes, the schools, the services, and the infrastructure required to support such a large venture. Even in “success,” this project will be an abject failure. It is emblematic of a community with no vision. MAT

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
An Earth Day wish: move the tech park With a name like Finger Lakes Regional Economic Development Council, you’d think we’d get some actual regional planning. Instead, the goal seems to be insuring that every area in the region gets a share of state money. All right: I’m being snarky. The council does have representatives from throughout the Rochester-Finger Lakes region working together to improve the area’s economy. But the Council’s plan for a high-tech park in Genesee County is exasperating. Forgive my focusing on the same subject in two consecutive columns, but this a really good illustration of how we perpetuate sprawl, which is bad both for our urban areas and for the environment. The park will be located in the Town of Alabama, an area that right now, as City’s Jeremy Moule noted earlier this month, is “blanketed with farms and protected wild areas.” Genesee County and Development Council officials hope the facility will attract big nanotech companies and create jobs. Less than an hour away, of course, are two highly developed areas: Rochester to the east, Buffalo to the west. If New York embraced the principles of sound regional development – if we wanted to protect the environment – that tech park would go in one of those developed areas, which already have much of the infrastructure and public services it would need. And, by the way, it would be more likely to have – or to attract – the skilled workforce that high-tech businesses need. Instead, state funds will help create a high-tech industrial park in a rural area, possibly changing that area dramatically. And employees will either have to have housing built – and the public will have to provide new services like schools and utilities – or the employees will live in Rochester and Buffalo and drive back and forth to work. The tech-park plan, then, is a perfect example of government-induced, environmentally destructive sprawl. This is what happens when there is no regional vision. Open space, farmland, woods, lakes, streams: they’re among Upstate New York’s most important attributes. Planning together, we could strengthen developed areas and protect the less developed land. And we could devise tax structures and tax-base sharing so that the need for tax revenue didn’t spur development in the wrong places. But no. State Assembly member Joe Morelle called the Alabama project “a transformational opportunity.” He’s half right. It’s transformational, all right. But it’s a smart-growth opportunity lost.

Planning together, residents and officials in the Rochester-Finger Lakes area could strengthen developed areas and protect the less developed land.” good. The sign-up numbers beat Obama’s goal. The number of young adults looks good. That gives Democrats a chance to tout what the law provides, and last week, Obama challenged them to do just that. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, Americans have gained plenty: no more denial of coverage for pre-existing conditions; no more loss of insurance if you get a serious illness or lose your job; no more lifetime cap on your health-insurance coverage. For Democrats, that’s been a winning message all along, but they let Republicans control the discussion and scare them away from the legislation. Now Republicans plan to make the health-care plan a centerpiece of their midterm election campaigns. This is not a small issue. Political analysts are predicting that Republicans will keep control of the House in this year’s election and that they have a reasonable chance at getting control of the Senate. That would pretty much insure that Obama will accomplish little in his last two years. Republicans will set the agenda, and Obama will be forced to accept it or be content with veto after veto. Obama critics like Darrell Issa will relish the prospect of hearings into administration actions. And Republicans will be able to block any significant Obama appointments – including to the Supreme Court. It’s way past time for Democrats to get their courage back. Maybe the healthcare enrollment numbers will strengthen their spine. rochestercitynewspaper.com

Rochester adds jobs
The economy of the Rochester area is improving, ranking fourth in upstate job growth in March. The state’s Department of Labor reports that the region gained 2,900 private-sector jobs and 2,200 non-farm jobs. The Rochester metro includes Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Orleans, and Wayne counties. The Buffalo area also showed job growth, though Syracuse lost jobs.
A large fight broke out in front of the Main Street Armory, 900 East Main Street, around 2 a.m. on April 20. Multiple police officers from different agencies responded, and a sergeant with the Rochester Police Department suffered a minor injury, according to an RPD spokesperson. Three disorderly conduct arrests were made, the spokesperson says.

The Wayne County town of Williamson could begin powering its municipal buildings almost entirely with solar energy as early as the fall. The electricity will come from a 1.5 megawatt solar farm, which will be built on the closed Williamson landfill. Compared to the 580 megawatt Ginna nuclear plant, the generation capacity is small. But it’ll be much more powerful than smaller home systems, which often have capacities of a few kilowatts. Williamson won’t own the solar facility at first, but will have the option to buy it six years after it comes online. For the time being, it’ll buy the electricity under a 25-year contract with plant owner Distributed Sun, of Washington, D.C. “It’s renewable, clean energy and it has some savings to us,” says Supervisor Jim Hoffman. He estimates the savings at about $1.5 million over 20 years. Williamson may be the first government in the state to get nearly all of its power from a single solar

farm, says Hoffman, who’s also chair of the Wayne County Board of Supervisors. Williamson has smaller solar arrays providing power for its Town Hall and its waste water treatment plant, he says. Sustainable Energy Development, which is based out of Ontario in Wayne County, will build the solar farm. Company representatives say they should start construction work this summer. Currently, they’re finalizing agreements with Rochester Gas and Electric as well as the State Department of Environmental Conservation. The solar panels will produce about 1.75 million kilowatt hours a year, which is enough to cover close to all of the town government’s electric consumption, says Kevin Schulte, the founder and CEO of Sustainable Energy Development.

“The majority of the people that make their living on Monroe Avenue want [the turn]. The city wants businesses in the city. They want people to come to Monroe Avenue. And we want it to be made easy.” [ MOIRA LEMPERLE, PRESIDENT OF THE MONROE AVENUE MERCHANTS ASSOCIATION ]

Monroe merchants fight Inner Loop plan A recent change made to the plans to fill in a portion of the Inner Loop is upsetting members of the Monroe Avenue Merchants Association. Specifically, vehicles would not be able to make a left turn onto Monroe from the new Howell Street. The street would be created by combining the current Howell and Pitkin streets into a single, two-way street. A pedestrian island would also be added on Howell. Merchants Association President Moira Lemperle says that the plan would hurt businesses in that area of Monroe Avenue and that it runs counter to everything the city is doing to draw people and business to Rochester. “The majority of the people that make their living on Monroe Avenue want [the turn],” Lemperle says. “The city wants businesses in the city. They want people to come to Monroe Avenue. And we want it to be made easy.” But city project manager Paul Way says that there are many alternate routes available, that very few people would turn left at that intersection, and that the city wants to open the Monroe-Chestnut-Howell intersection for all users, not just cars. “This is a transformation project,” he says. “We’re trying to transform

what is an expressway right now into a multimodal street that works for all users. The island announces to every driver that’s going through that intersection that this intersection is important for pedestrians.” The City of Rochester received a $17.8 million federal grant to fill in the loop between Monroe Avenue and Charlotte Street. The city is contributing approximately $6 million to the $27 million project. Built decades ago to help people get around downtown, the loop has subsequently been an object of derision for cutting up neighborhoods and separating downtown from the rest of the city. The project will make a significant amount of land available for development.
The Monroe Avenue turn will be discussed at a 7 p.m. meeting today (Wednesday, April 23) at the Center for Youth, 905 Monroe Avenue. It is one item on a longer agenda. There is also talk of setting a meeting specifically on the left turn issue, but that hadn’t been settled as of this paper’s deadline. One of the final meetings on the Inner Loop project as a whole is on Tuesday, May 6, in the lodge at Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park, 353 Court Street. There will be two sessions: 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The city’s Way says that the latest project designs will be on display.
POLITICS | BY JEREMY MOULE
Morelle out Joe Morelle will step down as chair of the Monroe County Democratic Committee when his term ends in September. He made the announcement at a press conference on Tuesday morning. Members of the county Democratic Committee will elect a new chair after Morelle steps down, although Morelle refused to speculate on who that person could be. Morelle became party chair in May 2005, when Democrats were struggling financially and bitterly divided among different factions, he said. Morelle said he tried to bring a sense of purpose and direction to the organization, worked to improve fund raising, and moved the party into a new headquarters. And Democrats’ countywide enrollment advantage has grown. In 2005, Democrats had about 8,000 more people enrolled than Republicans, according to records from the State Board of Elections. As of April 2014, that margin had grown to approximately 46,000 voters. “Our party is on the ascendancy,” Morelle said. Morelle said he’s stepping down because of his new duties as the State Assembly’s majority leader. His decision is not the result of the 2013 mayoral election, where he backed incumbent Tom Richards over eventual winner Lovely Warren, he said.

Can parents save the schools?
Carrie Remis: parents would get involved in schools if they had the means and the opportunity. PHOTO BY MARK CHAMBERLIN
Few people not directly employed by the Rochester school district are as nimble at navigating local policies, labor agreements, and state education law as Carrie Remis. In 2006, Remis co-founded the Rochester Fund for Educational Accountability, an all-volunteer organization that provided technical assistance and training to parent groups on federal education law (the group has since dissolved). And in 2009, she founded the Parent Power Project to help parent organizations develop the skills to break through school bureaucracies. Her efforts have earned her friends in high places. They’ve also earned her some enemies. Critics say Remis pushes a particular brand of support for parents popular with politicians and the business community. And they say she’s anti-teacher and anti-union — little more than another white do-gooder in a largely black and brown school district who doesn’t really understand the communities she’s trying to help. But Remis has no problem defending herself. She is bright, contemplative, and not afraid to speak her mind. When Lovely Warren launched her mayoral campaign last year, Remis was at her side. And she was one of Warren’s campaign education policy advisors. When Rochester Teachers Association President Adam Urbanski challenged Warren to a debate on education issues, the Warren campaign offered Remis instead. The debate never took place, but Remis says she was up for the job. From day one, Warren seized the education platform by offering an alternative to the city’s failing school system. It’s not surprising that Warren recently appointed Remis to co-chair her Early Learning Council. The other co-chair is Joanne Larson, an education professor at the University of Rochester’s Warner Graduate School. 6 CITY
APRIL 23-29, 2014
Warren wants to engage the community in a robust conversation about Rochester’s dire educational situation, Remis says. “She’s got a bolder vision of family involvement,” she says. Empowering students and parents is a guiding
principle shared by Warren, Larson, and Remis. Larson recently published “Radical Equality in Education, Starting Over in US Schooling.” She takes the position that the current public school model is broken and obsolete, and that a new model involving greater student and parent participation for the purpose of learning rather than strictly job prep is needed. Remis says the changes needed in Rochester’s schools and in many urban districts could have come sooner if parents had the resources. But in many urban districts, she says, parents lack the time, education, and resources to comb budgets, policies, and curriculum the way their suburban peers can. The power dynamics are different, Remis says, and for urban parents, engagement is frequently relegated to volunteering as lunchroom monitors and other less important tasks. Arming parents with knowledge does not make her anti-teacher or anti-union, Remis says. And she says she won’t make scapegoats of the teachers union or its president, Adam Urbanski. “First of all, I come from a family of public educators,” she says. “But I do think there is a difference between teachers and union leaders. I would never say teachers shouldn’t be represented. I know the history.” But Remis took a much more strident tone when she addressed a hearing of the New York State Senate Education Commission last year. She accused unions of stifling education reform.
“Special interests — namely the New York State United Teachers and their surrogates — are strategically taking advantage of parents who feel excluded, amplifying our concerns and distorting the issues,” she said. Remis says she was trying to stress that union representatives frequently wrap their public conversations in terms of what’s best for students and parents, though they represent neither. And parents need to have their own autonomous voice, she says. Remis says there needs to be greater transparency to labor agreements, and that parents and the public should have some say in what goes into them. Decision-making between the superintendent and union bosses behind closed doors has diluted what should be a more democratic process, she says. Though Remis doesn’t advocate for the elimination of tenure, she says the standards for awarding it are low and uneven. That keeps younger teachers from developing into strong professionals, she says. The combination of tenure and seniority, which allows senior teachers to displace newer teachers, has become a serious management issue for some school administrations. The really troubling issue facing the city school district — one that illustrates the problems with the current teachers’ contract — is how the district will handle inevitable layoffs as enrollment declines, Remis says. “It’s just a matter of time,” she says. “When you look at the total overall studentto-teacher ratio, we have the lowest in the state. And that’s not sustainable.” The current contract would prevent the district from making thoughtful employment decisions in favor of simply cutting the newest teachers, Remis says. And Remis is particularly bullish on the idea of clarifying talk around accountability and autonomy — favorite buzzwords in the education reformers’ lexicon. There should be less emphasis on central office governance, she says, while teachers should have more autonomy at the school level to make decisions about everything from hiring to curriculum. It’s an approach that Boston’s Pilot Schools have taken with some success. In terms of accountability, Remis recommends having student and parent surveys become part of the professional evaluation of teachers and principals. The concept, which is not uncommon in higher education, is permitted under state education law, she says. But it didn’t make it into the local evaluations. Test results and graduation rates matter, Remis says, but there’s a difference between
how parents and the government view accountability. The government tends to be more data driven, she says, while parents expect clear and timely communication. And parents become frustrated when calls go unreturned or their questions get passed from voice mail to voice mail, Remis says. Sometime in June, the Early Learning Council
will make recommendations to Mayor Warren about strengthening parents’ educational hand. Remis says the council has been focused on pre-k, and figuring out how many children need access to it, since not all enroll through the city school district. She dismisses the criticism that Warren’s limited influence over the school district means she won’t be able to follow through on a campaign pledge to increase educational opportunities for Rochester’s students and families. Remis says Warren can fill information gaps, one of the central barriers to meaningful parent involvement, through easy- to-understand guides like school report cards that fully describe each school in the city, including private schools and charters. They would include key information about each school to help parents make the best choices, she says. Remis also criticizes the district’s cumbersome enrollment process. She says she favors a citywide application that could be used for pre-k on up and even include the city’s public charter schools. That would deflate the narrative of charter parents being more engaged because they’re motivated enough to fill out the applications, Remis says. Remis says all public schools should compete for students and the funding that goes with them — what some policymakers refer to as backpack funding. “That shifts the conversation away from whether parents have the motivation to fill out forms, to parents choosing schools that are a good fit,” Remis says. “That shifts the responsibility to the schools to start building those relationships with parents early.” Perhaps the most important thing Warren can do is apply the necessary political pressure to drive change in Rochester, Remis says. She can use her position to keep education on the front burner — something that Remis says Lieutenant Governor Bob Duffy started to do when he was mayor. Rochester is stuck in talking mode about its education problems, Remis says, but little discernable action comes out of it. “If Susan B. Anthony operated this way, I wouldn’t have the right to vote,” she says.

A west side story [ CHOW HOUND ] BY KATIE LIBBY
La Marifinga started out as an idea for a food
truck, but eventually evolved into a restaurant serving Spanish and American food on the west side. Edgar Gonzalez, the current Sous Chef at Rocco, opened the restaurant with his wife, Diana, who is at the restaurant seven days a week — an admirable feat when you have four kids at home. The Gonzalez family wanted to open a neighborhood restaurant where everyone felt welcome to come in, see familiar faces and get some good, authentic food. With a menu that stays under the $12 mark, that’s an easy thing to do. And La Marifinga does a steady take out business due to the amount of industry and factory workers in the area. The restaurant space itself is small, with only four or five booths and a counter where you can order take out. A few pictures hang on the wall and lively music is piped in through speakers. However, you don’t have to spend a lot of time and energy on decorating when you can let the food speak for itself. Appetizers include empanadas with chicken ($2) or beef ($2.25), and alcapurrias ($2.50), a deep-fried green banana fritter filled with crabmeat. A selection of the entrees include a generous portion of Arroz & Abichuela (rice and beans) that can be served with pork (small for $6.90, medium for $8.90 or large for $10.90) or beef (small for $7, medium
for $9 or large for $11); rotisserie chicken ($9 or $16); and a pork sandwich ($6.75). We tried the Sandwich Marifinga ($8.50), reminiscent of a Cuban sandwich, with pulled pork, Dominican salami (kind of like a bacon/ pork belly hybrid), cheddar cheese, ketchup, honey mustard and cilantro. On the side, the sandwich came with plump sweet potato fries. We paired the meal with cocktail fruit juice ($3) — a combination of papaya, grapes, cantaloupe and something called red fruit. La Marifinga is located at 624 Lexington Ave. It is open Monday-Sunday, 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Food prices range from $2.00-$12.00. Delivery is available. For more information, call 458-6111 or follow La Marifinga on Facebook.

New wheelchair rugby team gaining momentum in Rochester In one swift motion, Jerremy Lorch snatches a volleyball out of the air, plops it on his lap and whizzes off down the basketball court — a strong breeze following his wheelchair as he speeds down the sideline. But Lorch doesn’t get far. Another man in a wheelchair rams into him with spectacular force, nearly toppling both players to the ground. The ball pops loose — and it’s a free-for-all. More players huff as they hustle their chairs toward the ball. It’s a frantic dash. Arms are nearly knotted until a man finally grabs the ball and hurls it across the court. Chris Hilderbrant reaches for it, the tips of his fingers just able to knock it down, but he doesn’t have a chance. Another chair rams him, knocking Hilderbrant to the floor. Now on his side, his shirt is suddenly readable: “If you can read this, tip me back up!” Someone from the sidelines rushes onto the court and pops Hilderbrant back upright on his wheels. 10 CITY APRIL 23-29, 2014
“Nice hit, Craig!” Hilderbrant shouts. “But you better watch your back now!” Craig Mills rolls over, pats Hilderbrant on the back with a knowing grin, and tosses the ball into his lap. This cacophony of grunts and clashing metal-on-metal echo off the walls of the Pieters Family Life Center’s gym several times a month as the Western New York Wreckers get into competition shape. The Western New York Wreckers is a relatively
new wheelchair rugby team in the area. With about a dozen players from the Buffalo and Rochester area, the team is looking to gain momentum and players in order to compete with athletes across the country. In August 2013, Jerremy Lorch and Chris Hilderbrant connected with Luther Vucic of Buffalo. The three had a mutual interest in creating a wheelchair rugby team, but there weren’t enough players from either city to form a full team, so they combined forces. The team has since recruited about 10 more regular players and a handful who practice with the team sporadically.
“We’re amateurs,” Lorch says modestly — the WNY Wreckers is technically a professional team under the US Quad Rugby Association. “There aren’t a whole lot of levels in quad rugby,” Lorch adds, but it’s evident the players are passionate about their sport and are growing in skills practice by practice. Wheelchair rugby was developed in Canada in the late 1970’s by a group of quadriplegic athletes who were looking for an alternative to wheelchair basketball. A popular sport among paraplegics, wheelchair basketball requires a wider range of arm and hand functions that can be troublesome for some quadriplegic athletes. The International Wheelchair Rugby Federation formed in 1993 and has since governed the sport. Wheelchair rugby — or quad rugby as it is officially known in the U.S. — is often branded as the only fullcontact wheelchair sport in the world and is now played in 26 countries, becoming a Paralympic summer sport in 2000. The sport combines elements of rugby, basketball, and handball, with players competing in teams of four to pass and carry a volleyball-sized ball across the opposing team’s goal line. Every 10 seconds, players must either pass or dribble the ball. The team has 40 seconds total to get the ball across the court — usually a regulation basketball court — to score points or it’s a turnover. “It’s a pretty high scoring game because of the quick turnover in play,” Lorch says. Contact between wheelchairs is not only permitted, it’s a key part of the game, as players maneuver and crash into one another to block and hold opponents. Wheelchair rugby was initially called ‘Murderball’ because of its hard-hitting nature. “It’s really almost just, ‘Kill the carrier,’” Lorch says. “Hitting is an essential part of the game. At times, your role is not even to handle the ball, it’s just to hit people.” At a recent practice, no sooner has Dave Sprout gotten his hands on the volleyball, he shouts “Kat, go deep!” to a woman halfway down the court. He hurls the ball. As it arcs gracefully in the air, the rest of the players haul down court to catch up. Just as it lands in Kat’s hands — SMASH! Craig Mills, who was guarding Kat to begin with, slams into her chair. Pretty soon there’s an
eight-chair pileup near the end zone, as players try to maneuver their chairs through tight spaces to get the optimal position to score. Despite all the hitting, the Wreckers haven’t had any major injuries since they started practicing. So far, the worst injuries have been bruises and sore arms when the players head home after a long practice. “We had a few pinched fingers in the beginning,” Lorch says. “But that’s because we were using our everyday chairs and the wheels were right up against one another up top.” Part of what got Lorch interested in starting a team was the aggressive nature of the game, combined with the camaraderie and understanding of his fellow players. Lorch was paralyzed in a diving accident four years ago while out on a friend’s boat. He thought he was in deep water — and while one end of the boat was, the other was hovering just above a sandbar, which he dove into headfirst. “I swam in high school, so I should have known better than to dive that way,” Lorch says. After more than a year in the hospital and painful physical therapy, Lorch was looking for something to do to stay active. Most popular sports have been adapted for the handicap community, including basketball, hockey (played on specialized ice sleds), football, fencing and cycling (handcycling). For Lorch, it was initially wheelchair basketball. “Everybody starts out playing wheelchair basketball, it’s a good gateway to other wheelchair sports,” Lorch says. “I liked watching basketball, but it held no appeal to me whatsoever to play it.” Chris Hilderbrant, one of the other founding members of the Wreckers, felt the same way. He too had been in a diving accident. “I wanted to find some sort of sport for myself, and most of the sports I like tend to be more ‘hitting’ sports; I like hockey, I like football. I was never a big basketball fan,” he says. Quad rugby gained popularity and prominence following the 2005 Oscarnominated documentary “Murderball,” which focused on the rivalry between the U.S. and Canadian teams leading up to the 2004 Paralympics games in Athens, Greece. The film was noted for scene after scene of continues on page 12

wheelchairs zooming across courts and flipping over — in a spectacular ballet of metal-onmetal carnage. Even more notable, every player had a grin from ear to ear as they were flipped upright again on the court — before speeding off after their next opponent. The joy can be seen in the Wreckers’ practices — even when the players are taking hard hits. After a goal for the other scrimmage team, Dave Sprout tosses the ball to his teammate, Kat. She isn’t handicapped, but helps the team practice. She’s not as comfortable in the chair, and is quickly rammed by Craig Mills, who has raced from the opposite side of the court in one blink. Kat laughs, shrugs off the hit and tosses the ball to Sprout, who’s wheeled himself halfway down the court. “I think that in terms of hitting and aggressiveness, there’s typically very little of that in the disability community,” Hilderbrant says. “And people who can play quad rugby can’t necessarily play other disability sports, so it’s really giving them an outlet to find their competitiveness.” “I definitely think the hitting appeals to a lot of people — I know it does to us. Good way to get some aggression out,” Lorch adds. Wheelchair rugby athletes go through a series
of tests given by International Wheelchair Rugby Federation-approved testers to determine the strength, flexibility, sensation and tone in their arms, legs, and trunk (upper body). These factors play into the players’ classification score, which range from 0.5 to 3.5. At any given time, teams are not allowed to have a collective classification value higher than 8. Assessors also watch the athlete’s execution of ball and wheelchair handling on court to make a final determination of the athlete’s class. 12 CITY APRIL 23-29, 2014
Hilderbrant recently underwent training for the team, allowing him to assign classification scores. Most players have spinal cord injuries with full or partial paralysis of the legs and partial paralysis of the arms, while others have diseases like cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy or other medical conditions that have left them partially paralyzed. “Diving accidents seems to be the popular way to get on the team,” Lorch jokes. That’s the reason the team’s coach, Brian Weber, is also in a wheelchair. Weber was paralyzed from the neck down after a swimming accident on Lake Ontario. While he can’t play with the team because he uses a motorized wheelchair — that’s against the rules — he knows a thing or two about coaching. Weber coaches the Gates-Chili High School football team. Just like any sport, warm ups are key. From stretching to throwing drills to “suicide sprints” back and forth across the gym, the Wreckers are pushing as hard as they can — striving to get better at the game they’ve fallen in love with. “Make sure you’re focused on your target,” Sprout says to Hilderbrant during drills. Hilderbrant is in the hot seat, facing six teammates lined up against the wall. With three balls in play, Hilderbrant is throwing to his teammates, one at a time. At the same time, they’re hurling them right back at him. “We’re not what most people think of when
you hear ‘quadriplegic,’” Lorch says, adding that many people immediately think of Christopher Reeve. The team defies any preconceptions – whizzing up and down the court with ease, turning with air-tight precision and sending the ball soaring with strength and style.
“There’s definitely a stereotype that comes with that word that, ‘Oh, you’re fragile,’ but that’s not the case. If we were fragile, we wouldn’t have gotten ourselves into these situations.” At one of the team’s first practices in new chairs, Hilderbrant hit Lorch hard — causing the back of the chair to snap. “Hitting is pretty much what it’s all about,” Lorch says. “It actually has very little to do with regular rugby. I think they chose the name simply because of the hitting and the roughness of the game.” Players must use manual wheelchairs, which have several key modifications, including a front bumper to help with hits; wings, which are positioned in front of the main wheels to make it more difficult to hold opponents; spoke protectors to prevent damage to the wheels; and an anti-tip guard on the back. The wheels are slanted inward toward the player, so hands are less likely to get caught on another chair during game play, and players have more mobility and agility in the chair. The seat also dips down a bit in the back, almost like a bucket seat in a sports car. “The hits look pretty intense, and they are, but the balance is so much better on these [chairs],” Hilderbrant says. “You’re lower to the ground, the wheels are hammered in. You’re like a little cannonball.” The Wreckers’ current game chairs were donated from a team that had already used them for several seasons. While they’re worn, they work much better than everyday chairs. “We’re very grateful to have these chairs, but they don’t really fit us particularly well, so we’re always trying to figure out which chair best fits who and what pieces we can put together to make a whole chair,” Lorch says. The Wreckers held a fundraiser on Monday, April 21, to raise money for new chairs, which run about $5,000
apiece. If you missed it, the team accepts check, cash or PayPal donations. Visit Wnywreckers. com for more info. The team is slowly gathering “groupies,” many of whom are friends, family, or just fans of wheelchair rugby who help the team out with flat tires or when players flip over in their chairs. “They’re kind of like our own personal pit crew, like in NASCAR. You roll onto the sidelines, get a new tire and roll right back onto the court,” Lorch says. Unlike most sports, wheelchair rugby is pretty
much a year-round sport, without a real season. There are about 20-30 teams across the U.S. and parts of Canada, many of which will host regional tournaments throughout the year and invite several teams to play. The WNY Wreckers currently practice most Saturdays and some Mondays and is looking to up its practice schedule to twice a week. Even though quad rugby is a specialized sport, the team is welcoming. “We’re always looking for new people, even those who just want to try it out.” The team plans to start traveling to play games against other teams in the league this spring and summer. “We’ll probably be destroyed the first few games,” Hilderbrant says. “He’s wheeling circles around you, you can’t let him!” Sprout shouts across the practice. He wheels over to show a teammate a maneuver. With a swift flick of the wrist, Sprout spins his right wheel backward and his left wheel forward, spinning the chair 360 degrees so fast it could seemingly cause whiplash. “I think most people who see it are a little freaked out at first, like ‘Oh my God, that looks scary,’” Lorch says. “But I think people pretty quickly realize ‘Oh, this is pretty cool.’”

the first word that comes to mind is funk. It flavors an extensive array of other self-identified, stylistic influences found in the band’s music, and keeps you locked in. Jazz, soul and hip-hop are all equally represented in the Rochester-based outfit’s eclectic output, but mostly serve as accoutrements to that core aesthetic. Touting the show with mentions of new music and members, stop by to see what they have in store. — DAVE LABARGE
Fox 45 is uber referential on its self-titled debut EP. Every style, hook or riff the band cops to, it does unabashedly. It’s nothing particularly new, but it’s good — damn good. Sure the Sabbath riff on the opening track “Gehenna” is obvious, but who gives a sh*t? It’s cool, and that’s what matters. And Fox 45 (with three skirts and one bloke) is cool, baby, drenched with metal weight and cocky punk swagger. The rest of this 4-song EP is a dynamic mid-tempo dirge full of the kind of grinding usually reserved for the second date when the folks aren’t home. You might even call it stoner rock except for the band’s adherence to get in, get out, song-lengths. An excellent soundtrack for banging your head — or the gong — slowly. — BY FRANK DE BLASE
Jerry Falzone “Liar’s Moon” SELF-RELEASE Jerryfalzone.com
Each of the 10 cuts on Jerry Falzone’s excellent new “Liar’s Moon” would do just fine as simple guy-with-a-guitar-and-something-to-say vignettes but Falzone uses his simple strum and croon as a catapult to launch into a lush atmosphere of classic rock. Lush — perhaps a tad lonely even — but not overdressed for the occasion. Still, the production is big and bright, even in the face of lyrical melancholy and darkness, achieved with an impressive line-up of musicians to color in and out of the lines. The themes are universal — Falzone’s reactions and implementations are those we all have, though we may not be honest enough to admit it. Falzone is as guilty as the rest of us, heart on his sleeve, hence “Liar’s Moon.” I think there’s going to be one tonight. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

Johnny Bauer has performed music for 39 of his 42 years on earth. It started in the crib — if not the womb — and quickly moved to the stage with his family’s band, Bauer Power. “It consisted of my mom, my dad playing guitar,” Bauer says. “My oldest brother playing keyboards and bass, my brother Danny played drums, and my sister and I sang duets together.” The band entertained at American Legion Halls and Moose Lodges in and around the region, playing a mix of country, pop, and standards. But, according to Bauer, the country didn’t run too deep. “We were more on the Engelbert Humperdinck side of things than Johnny Cash,” he says. Then the wee Bauer got all shook up. “At age five, I started impersonating Elvis Presley,” he says. “My parents brought me to
a seamstress who made me the jumpsuit with the flared-out pants and a beautiful cape with the satin inlays.” But by age seven, Bauer had graduated to impersonating KISS. “‘Dr. Love’ was my hit back then,” he says with a laugh. The family band rolled with the changes through the 1980’s, but by the 1990’s Bauer was getting disillusioned. Contemporary rock left him cold. “Rock ‘n’ roll in the 90’s took a turn for the worse,” Bauer says. “So I kinda got back into the country scene which kinda vibed the 80’s. I got into the singer-songwriter thing, the acoustic…” Bauer started sharpening his songwriting skills; he had been writing songs since age 11 and to date has amassed a catalogue of over 250 tunes — showcasing his talent as a musician as well as a composer. “I said ‘It’s hard to find good musicians,’” he says. ‘”So I’ve got to be the best at what I do. I started honing in on the guitar.” But over time, he started coming back to the lyrics. “In the 80’s I didn’t care what the words were,” he says. “I cared more about the guitar parts. In the 90’s I started realizing a song should take you somewhere lyrically. And now I love it all.” Bauer says most of his songs are about love and relationships. They are gentle vignettes,
glimpses of life and light with an intuitive, singer/songwriter view. When played with his band, Johnny Bauer and Great Escape, the fleshed-out sound, including some slick vocal harmonies, is more of a nascent country strain. When Bauer flies solo, there’s a definite and palpable rawness and urgency. But the man doesn’t rely on drama or stunts. It’s just his plaintive voice amidst the rhythm and color and tone of his looped guitar. This is what Bauer loves. “There’s nothing like stripping down a song and just playing it with acoustic guitar and a voice,” he says. “I mean, I like big production too.” His fourth and latest CD with the band, “Roads That Lie Ahead”— due to drop in early May — was recorded at both Red Booth and Holt studios. It’s a sweet, swinging pop/ county affair. The reigns get pulled before it gets too twangy and the parts that skirt rock ‘n’ roll do so appropriately and effectively without going overboard. “Roads That Lie Ahead” is the perfect blend of just enough. Bauer prides himself in its originality, something he’s passionate about. “I do covers,” Bauer says of his three to four weekly gigs. “But I’ve always stuck to my guns and done at least a third originals wherever I play … even some weddings.”

Duke Jupiter will perform and will feature appearances from original members Don Maracle and Dave Hanlon. Gene Cornish and Lou Gramm will lead The House of Guitars Rock ’n’ Roll All-Stars for a performance as well. What’s rather confusing is the number of performers with no ties to our city. C’mon, there’s plenty of talent in town that could’ve been called upon for the Rochester Music Hall of Fame. Rochester Music Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be Sunday, April 27, 7 p.m. at the Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre, 60 Gibbs St. Tickets are $20-$35.

There’s no denying the impact of Rochester’s music scene on our culture here and abroad. Joining the ranks of the previous two years’ inductees — like bluesman Son House, Cab Calloway, Young Rascal Gene Cornish, Lou Gramm, Mitch Miller, DJ Nick Nickson, and many more — will be this year’s honorees Duke Jupiter, David Hochstein, Emily Sibley Watson, The House of Guitars, and radio station WDKX. Grammy award winning producer Ethel Gabriel, and musician and businessman Peter Morticelli will receive the Special Merit Award, a first for the RMHF.

Bluegrass and rap sound like two genres that should probably never meet — we’ve all seen how country and rap has fared — but Brooklyn-based group Gangstagrass somehow found the golden balance. Anyone familiar with the FX series “Justified” and its opening credits will recognize the band’s track “Long Hard Times to Come,” which earned an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music in 2010. The six-person band, headed by producer Rench, is now touring off its third album, “Broken Hearts and Stolen Money,” an engaging album that proves far-out ideas can often work with genuine talent and a careful pace.

HIP-HOP | TECH N9NE
Rapper Aaron Dontez Yates, better known by his stage name Tech N9ne, has been in the rap game for more than 20 years, and his longevity can be accredited to the simple fact that this guy can spit fire. His “chopper” style of rap is equal parts speed and technicality — kind of like a cross between Eminem and Kendrick Lamar. His last studio album, 2013’s “Something Else,” features Lamar, Wiz Khalifa and B.O.B., and Tech N9ne is gearing up to release his 14th full-length, “Strangeulation” on May 6. Some notable tracks to check out — and watch the videos if you can, they are a real treat — are “Am I a Psycho?” “E.B.A.H,” and the one that best shows off his speed rapping skills, “Fragile.” Tech N9ne performs with Krizz Kaliko and Jarren Benton on Tuesday, April 29, at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N.

Rochester musicians will celebrate International Jazz Day in a most appropriate way: making it up as they go along. Here’s how it works: Musician one plays solo for five minutes and then is joined by improvising musician two.

Theater What kind of a statement is that making? Stalkers and mass murderers are swoon worthy, so long as they have sadness in their heart and sing well? Yikes. But that’s a problem with the story
The cast of “Phantom of the Opera” performs the song “Masquerade” in a scene from the musical. Presented by RBTL, the touring production runs through Sunday, April 27. PHOTO PROVIDED
Masking the flaws “The Phantom of the Opera” PRESENTED BY ROCHESTER BROADWAY THEATRE LEAGUE THROUGH SUNDAY, APRIL 27 AUDITORIUM THEATRE, 885 E. MAIN ST. TICKETS START AT $37.50 | 222-5000, RBTL.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY ERIC REZSNYAK
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “The Phantom of the Opera” has been a musical-theater blockbuster since its debut in 1986. It has grossed more money worldwide than any other musical, and continues to pack houses in major cities and on global tours. That’s all the more remarkable when you consider that — real talk — the story isn’t really very good. Apologies to French author Gaston Leroux, on whose novel the show is based, but the plot is thin, the characters behave nonsensically even by musical-theater standards, and the supposed “romance” between the lead characters is actually quite disturbing. And yet “Phantom” is massively successfully, likely because of Webber’s signature mix of undeniable, soaring songs 22 CITY APRIL 23-29, 2014
and his love of spectacular set pieces. When you think of “Phantom,” you think of the chandelier, the “Angel of Music,” the underground boat ride, and “Music of the Night.” The plot and the dialogue are tertiary at best. I first saw “Phantom” nearly 20 years ago at the Pantages Theatre in Toronto, and even then the show felt dated, even clumsy in parts. But the new touring production currently playing at the Auditorium Theatre surprised me. Producer Cameron Mackintosh gave the show an overhaul in honor of its 25th anniversary, and what resulted is a gorgeous, well paced, and at times even nuanced (yes, nuance in “Phantom of the Opera”) staging. The major failings of the basic plot are still there, but almost every other facet of the show has been improved to make for a much more satisfying experience. That troublesome plot: Christine Daae is
a member of the ensemble at the Opera Populaire — and possibly an undiagnosed sufferer of Stockholm Syndrome. Christine has secretly been training her voice with what she believes to be an angel sent to her by her dead musician father (oh, Christine…), but which is actually a deformed genius who lives
in an underground lair and has a penchant for sending passive-aggressive notes. He is also totally insane, and has been wreaking havoc in the opera house for some time with apparently no attempts to stop him — in fact, he pulls in a cushy salary for his lifethreatening shenanigans. One of those stunt-queen antics leads the opera’s prima donna, Carlotta, to walk out ahead of a big performance, and Christine takes her place. Christine is beloved by everyone, especially her recently rediscovered childhood sweetheart, Raoul, and that crazy guy from the sewers, referred to as The Phantom. A love triangle of sorts emerges, but only if you consider “love” to be a guy kidnapping a young woman, physically assaulting her, and threatening her multiple times. He then murders several people while implementing his elaborate schemes, and yet she’s still maybe, kind of into him. Seriously, that is messed up. And yet, at the performance I attended, the audience was still rooting for The Phantom, even as he strung up innocent after innocent in his physics-defying noose contraptions. You can make a case for The Phantom being a tragic character, certainly, but sympathetic? A legitimate love interest for the female lead?
itself, not this production. And this tour does many things right. First off, it is a great-looking show. The costume designs by Mario Bjornson are stunning. The set by Paul Brown makes clever use of a central rotating turret to create a variety of locales, from a rococo theater office to The Phantom’s dank hideaway. The various special effects fully realize The Phantom’s attacks — particularly impressive for a road show. Although the story is set in the late 19th century, this production feels contemporary. The first act moves along briskly, and director Laurence Connor has added numerous small “moments” throughout the show that capture the audience’s attention, but don’t distract from the overall story. That thoughtful approach is also reflected in the way he presents certain secondary characters, specifically Carlotta (Jacquelynne Fontaine), who is historically portrayed as an annoying shrew. Here we are reminded that she is actually a victim in the story, and is sometimes quite charming even as she is forced to perform in a situation that any rational person would find terrifying. As for the leads, the standout is Julia Udine as Christine. Udine is almost ideally cast in the role. She is a gifted singer and projects a delicate innocence. Once she is pressed into the various mindboggling scenarios she seems on the verge of madness — something this production makes seem like a very real possibility for the character. I found Cooper Grodin less successful in the role of The Phantom. He worked much better in the second act, but in the first he failed to convey the menace that should be associated with the character — he seemed more like a fussy proctor. He is a strong singer, but his vocal approach is less aggressive than most of the singers’ associated with the role. That was especially true of his upper register, which verged on lilting at times. I suspect that Grodin’s softer approach to the character was deliberate to make The Phantom appear more romantic, and less horrifying. It apparently worked, as the audience with which I saw the show gave the actor, and character, rapturous applause. Maybe arias speak louder than actions.

Barbara Biddy is an actor, director, and teacher who has been an influential member of the Rochester theater community since 1973. Along with her husband, Fran, Biddy was a founder and longtime artistic director of Shipping Dock Theatre, which opened in 1980. Through Shipping Dock, Biddy put on dozens of productions featuring a wide range of local actors. Shipping Dock selections were often smart, insightful, and challenging — it was the first local theater to stage the AIDS drama "The Normal Heart" in the 1980's, which facilitated discussion about the disease that was still widely misunderstood at the time. Shipping Dock also staged plays that tackled issues such as racism and antisemitism — as well as frothy comedies like "Noises Off" — and was a home for original works by local playwrights. Shipping Dock shut down in 2008, but remains well regarded by the local theater community and its fans. "We did do lots of challenging work to make people feel, think, and go out and maybe make some kind of difference in the world," Biddy says. "I like to be challenged, too. As it turns out, a lot of people did. And we all worked very, very hard." Biddy has continued to teach acting and occasionally directs local theater, most recently helming "The Year of Magical Thinking" at Blackfriars Theatre in 2012.

Art “Bones’ work reminds me of old skateboard graphics, the things I used to love growing up in the 1980s skate scene,” Lehman says. “It just has this rich, organic, slimy feel to it, and it looks so alive.” Through Wall Therapy, a host of local and international artists have created more than 50 murals, transforming Rochester’s buildings in the Market District, the East End, the St. Paul Quarter, the South Wedge Neighborhood, the El Camino Trail, and other various spots around the city. “We will be focusing our efforts for Writes of Spring on the Atlantic Ave corridor immediately north of the freight train yard,” Wilson says.

Urban texture [ PREVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY
Last autumn, Rochester witnessed the annual summer street art festival, Wall Therapy, bust out of its regular July programming with an off-season “Fall Therapy” mural-making series. After a dormant winter, Wall Therapy will present yet another break-out painting session this week. “Writes of Spring” will focus specifically on letterform graffiti, and will feature an international group of artists representing various styles and different traditions within the genre. If anyone expected Wall Therapy’s continuous projects to grow stale once the original shine of its novelty wore off, think again. In the past, events have showcased a variety of muralists working in a range of styles. Moving forward, organizers plan to host highly curated events focused on different themes. This mini springtime fest, held Friday-Sunday, April 25-27, will spotlight artists working specifically with typography, but this provides an opportunity to showcase the wide gamut of styles and traditions within that constraint. This textural manifestation of the festival is particularly close to the hearts of two of Wall Therapy’s main men. “I grew up among writers and above the Pitkin Ave Subway 26 CITY APRIL 23-29, 2014
Yard in East New York, Brooklyn,” says Wall Therapy founder, Dr. Ian Wilson. “My older brother was an active writer on the ‘A’ and ‘CC’ subway lines during the early- to mid- 1980’s, so I’ve always been aware of graffiti since about age 6. I remember being absolutely in awe of the lettering.” That fascination with graffiti lettering, and with the culture itself, has only grown. “I first tried my hand at writing around 1987, however it wasn’t until college in New Orleans that I really explored all aspects of the art as a writer.” he says. “In many ways, curating this Wall Therapy event around type and letterforms represents a nod to the roots of the culture that I love.” The enthusiasm of Erich Lehman, lead festival organizer and director of 1975 Gallery, comes not from a personal background in graffiti, but from his education and work as a designer, and his fondness for the history of letterform. “I’m a type nerd through and through, so I’m really excited about this,” he says. Six artists will paint the town this weekend. New York-based Queen Andrea is a typographer who crafts unique letters and often communicates the wit of hiphop culture in her work, Wilson says. Max Ripo, a New York transplant to Barcelona, “depicts lettering interwoven with iconic
and graphic motifs, which gives his letters a unique texture,” Wilson says. Wilson brought Italian painter and sculptor Peeta to Rochester in summer 2011. Peeta painted a wall on North Clinton Avenue (which has since been repainted) at the annual B-Boy BBQ hosted by Rochester’s FUA Crew. His skill at imbuing his highly abstracted lettering with dimensionality constantly tricks the eye, and his paintings look nearly as three-dimensional as his kinetic, neo-Futurist sculptures. “With a technique that is inimitable in its precision and detail, New York-based Faust is arguably one of the premier letterers of our generation,” Wilson says. The artist is known worldwide for his impressive hand-style, “which he often translates to a large format without loss of detail,” Wilson adds. According to Wilson, Niels “Shoe” Meulman is perhaps the foremost proponent of ‘calligraffiti,’ who renders calligraphic letters on a large scale as if he was wielding a pen. His work reaches all the way back to European Medieval history, pulling forward the calligraphic forms on a totally radical scale, Lehman says. The featured local artist is Bones, a member of Rochester’s 25-year-old FUA crew, whose hand at letterforms, Wilson says, is technically superb and disciplined.
Though this special event focuses on the art of graffiti writers and text, breaking from the past focus on muralists and images, many building owners have learned to trust the quality of work offered by Wall Therapy. “The approach to property owners was the same as we’ve used previously,” Wilson says. “We show examples of an artist’s work and if there is a positive resonance, we give a new life and purpose to walls.” “I’d be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge the fact that what’s perceived as ‘graffiti’ is appreciated differentially. In other words, it doesn’t have the same appeal of previous Wall Therapy art,” Wilson says. “One of my sincere hopes for Writes of Spring is to foster an appreciation for art which is textbased, possibly graffiti, and produced by artists whose technical skill rivals anything we’ve seen thus far.” Besides adding to the city’s growing collection of murals, there is an opportunity for education here. Writes of Spring “is a demonstration of the range of art that is promoted by the Wall Therapy team,” Wilson says. “Unbeknownst to many in our community, some of the best artwork in the public space exists along North Clinton Avenue,” and was created by home-grown artists, he adds. Wall Therapy aims to prove that the artwork created during Writes of Spring can viably exist in other quadrants the city, as well. This is only the top of mural season, and the beginning of what could become a year-round endeavor. “What you’ll see this summer and beyond is more thematic work,” Wilson says. For example, the July festival will focus on portraiture. The aim is to ultimately create murals throughout the year, as weather permits. In addition, Wall Therapy organizers would like to sponsor artist talks and otherwise engage the community with local and visiting artists.

Humanity versus the machine “Transcendence”
(PG-13), DIRECTED BY WALLY PFISTER NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA
Since the Industrial Revolution, a succession of mechanical innovations represents the ambiguous gifts of progress: the power looms of the early 19th century, the locomotive later in the same century, the automobile for most of the 20th century, and the computer in our own time. Beginning with “Colossus: The Forbin Project” back in 1970, a number of movies deal with the menace of a sentient computer — “Demon Seed,” “Westworld,” for example, and most famously,
Stanley Kubrick’s “2001.” Now “Transcendence” takes the concept further, suggesting a new dynamic between mechanism and mankind. The picture begins in Berkeley, Calif., showing a shabby street patrolled by armed soldiers, with vegetation sprouting from cracks in sidewalks and buildings, and a shopkeeper using a laptop to prop open his door. Prose on the screen then announces a flashback to five years earlier, showing a sequence in which a brilliant computer scientist, Will Caster (Johnny Depp), explains to an adoring audience his creation of a computer that can cure diseases, end poverty and hunger, and establish a new, peaceful world. Immediately after his presentation an organization of violent Luddites whose motto is “Evolution Without Technology” attacks his laboratory, killing workers and blowing up computers full of information; worse, one of the group shoots Caster with a poisoned bullet, a wound that will kill him in a month. Caster persuades his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) and his partners (Paul Bettany and Morgan Freeman) to undertake a daring procedure,

transferring the contents of his brain via electrodes to his supercomputer so that he can live on and complete his invention. Naturally, the experiment succeeds, and Caster achieves the transcendence of the title, entering the computer itself and overseeing the construction of an enormous array of electronics in the middle of a desolate prairie; from there he can control the future according to his vision. After a good deal of talky exposition and a number of scenes showing the fulfillment of Caster’s plans, the scheme unsurprisingly turns sinister. When his computers apparently start repairing DNA and thus curing the lame, the sick, and the blind, they also turn the patients into the scientist’s minions, a circumstance that forces the action into something like warfare. The group of Eco terrorists, along with the government and Caster’s former colleagues, stage some failed armed assaults on his gigantic computer compound, finally deciding on an ingenious solution to the problem that, like Caster’s creation, appropriately combines the necessary elements of the human and the mechanical. After its intriguing beginning and despite its exploitation of some fascinating concepts, the picture grows increasingly confused and confusing and Caster’s ideas grow fuzzier as his computer self becomes more defined and powerful. Though opposed to technology and in favor of natural process, the Luddite group, for example, practices some shocking brutality and employs a considerable

Triple feature [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
array of mechanisms to achieve their goals. The slow pace of most of its plot suddenly explodes into the sort of bombing and shooting that usually appears in the familiar comic book blockbusters rather than an ambitiously cerebral science fiction flick. In the great tradition of its form, however, the film continues not only the long history of cultural ambivalence about technological progress, which needn’t constitute a simple Luddite hostility, but also celebrates the grand character of our old friend, the Mad Scientist. Will Caster descends in his hubristic way from all those great creative rebels of myth and literature who break the rules, commit the forbidden deed, and transcend indeed their original state — Prometheus, Faust, and of course, Victor Frankenstein. With his slow, flat, careful diction, and an unwavering composure whatever the circumstances, Johnny Depp never displays anything like the kind of hysteria that so often afflicts the scientists of literature and cinema, but his dreams, like theirs, suggest an overreaching ambition that almost inevitably results in disaster. Whatever their tone or their outcome, pictures like “Transcendence” also indicate more than the ambiguity of technological progress; they hint at the widespread distrust of intelligence and learning in the culture at large, where pressure groups prevent the showing of films on evolution or the history of the universe, and political figures spout unimaginable ignorance to their constituents; not every scientist, after all, is a Mad Scientist.
“From the Rough”
“Under the Skin”
(PG), DIRECTED BY PIERRE BAGLEY SCREENS FRIDAY AT THE LITTLE THEATRE FOLLOWED BY A Q&A WITH CATANA STARKS AND PRODUCER MICHAEL CRITELLI
(PG-13), DIRECTED BY FRANK PAVICH OPENS FRIDAY AT THE LITTLE THEATRE
(R), DIRECTED BY JONATHAN GLAZER NOW PLAYING AT THE LITTLE THEATRE
In telling the behind-the-scenes story of 70’s-era cult director Alejandro Jodorowsky’s failed attempt to adapt Frank Herbert’s sci-fi epic, “Dune,” into a movie, filmmaker Frank Pavich documents one of Hollywood’s most legendary tales of “What if?” Told largely by Jodorowsky himself, through ceaselessly entertaining talking head interviews, the director explains how he’d hoped his film would act as a “prophet,” by recreating the experience of taking LSD, expanding the imaginations of audiences around the world and altering the art form of filmmaking forever. So, you know, he had only minor ambitions for his work. At 84 years old, Jodorowsky is a lively and energetic speaker as he explains how, with the help of French producer Michel Seydoux, he went about recruiting a band of “spiritual warriors,” who would help him translate his vision to the screen. These collaborators would include everyone from Pink Floyd, to H.R. Giger, Mick Jagger, Orson Welles, and Salvador Dalí. Pavich supplements these interviews with all the concept art, storyboards, and character sketches which Jodorowsky and Seydoux had commissioned to be bound into an enormous coffee-table book (of which there are now only two in existence) to distribute to studios in order to garner interest in the project. The effect is to create for audiences a concrete picture of what the film could have looked like. Though the film was never made, Pavich shows how, by growing into Hollywood lore, it allowed Jodorowsky’s dream to live on, planting the seeds that would go on to influence the next generation of great science fiction filmmakers.
It’s been 10 long years since director Jonathan Glazer’s last film (2004’s genredefying romance, “Birth”) but his latest proves to be every bit worth the wait. Based loosely on the novel by Michel Faber, “Under the Skin” stars Scarlett Johansson as an alien in human form, prowling through Scotland looking for unassuming men to lure back to her lair, and ultimately to their doom. With a plot like that, the film could easily have been a mindless B-movie à la “Species,” but Glazer transforms it into something significantly more unusual: a shockingly affecting story about lust, loneliness, and human nature. Enigmatic to the point of abstraction, the film contains minimal dialogue, crafting a narrative completely through its starkly beautiful images. It’s a masterpiece of visual storytelling. When we follow Laura (named only in the credits) as she goes on the hunt for victims, we’re put directly into her headspace. The men speak in impenetrably thick accents, forcing us to rely on visual cues and body language to gauge what’s being said (supposedly the naturalism of these scenes was achieved through the use of hidden cameras, and the men are all non-actors who were only told what was happening afterwards, if the interaction went well). Johansson anchors the film with a subtle, chilling performance that ranks among the actresses’ best, and Mica Levi’s harsh, atonal score adds to the unnerving tone of the film, inspiring dread in even its few mundane moments. Haunting, challenging, and certainly not for everyone, “Under the Skin” is one of the most provocative and original films of the past year.
The High Falls Film Festival is still six months away, but this Friday, April 25, the festival will host a special screening of the sports drama “From the Rough,” at the Little Theatre. The film tells the story of Dr. Catana Starks (Taraji P. Henson, “Hustle and Flow”), the first AfricanAmerican woman to coach a Division 1 athletics team, as she leads the men’s golf team of Tennessee State University to its first national title. Friday also marks the film’s national release following a lengthy battle between director Pierre Bagley and producer Michael Critelli (a Rochester native) over artistic control of the movie. Originally completed in 2011, the film has supposedly changed shape over the years, and what’s emerged is a wellacted — the cast also includes Michael Clarke Duncan and Harry Potter’s Tom Felton — pleasantly formulaic story that sticks to a standard story trajectory, as a dedicated coach fights to mold a ragtag group of youths into a winning team.

Among the many trends and influences throughout American architectural history, perhaps one of the most transformative was the Arts and Crafts Movement. What began In England as a rejection of the mass production consumerism of the Victorian era during the late 19th century became an all-encompassing reevaluation of how we designed, produced and built everything from table linens to pottery, furniture to houses, and more. Thus, it comes as no surprise that there are several homes scattered among our streets that have varying degrees of “Craftsman” style. The home at 32 Calumet Street, built in 1911 for Frederick W. Van Bergh, president of the Van Bergh Silver Plating Company, and designed by Foote and Headley, is perhaps one of our very best examples of Craftsman style. The glazed Roman brick and cedar shake walls surmounted by wide overhanging roof eaves, embellished by shaped rafter tails, make for an undeniably Craftsman style exterior. Walking under the grand corner porch along the side of the house, you are greeted by an imposing glass paneled wood door. The vestibule beyond is a feast for the eyes with its shoulder height mahogany wood paneling, tiled floor and original slag glass wall sconces. Passing through another mahogany and glass door, the grand foyer with its distinctive mahogany staircase, quarter-sawn oak floors, oversized mahogany trim, and elaborate leaded glass French doors sets the wow-factor tone that carries throughout the house. The large living room occupies the full width of the house and is defined by plentiful light from the large
double hung windows, the spectacular Fulper tile fireplace surrounded by built-in bookcases, original light fixtures, extensive mahogany woodwork, and coved plaster ceiling. French doors lead out to the porch. The dining room is the crown jewel of the house with mahogany paneling, large bay window, beamed ceiling, concealed builtins, and stained slag glass chandelier with six matching minor lights. The large kitchen provides ample amounts of storage and counter space, and includes a section of the original butler’s pantry. The second story provides four light filled bedrooms (one with its own tiled fireplace), which impress with their original brass light fixtures, ample closets, two shared bathrooms, and full width sleeping porch. The bedrooms are arranged around the grand stair hall, which boasts two linen closets, coved plaster ceiling, and more mahogany woodwork. The finished attic provides two additional bedrooms and a full bath. The basement has an unusually high ceiling and provides a root cellar, several storage rooms, and large laundry. This 3,684 square foot home provides a rare opportunity to own a Craftsman style showpiece that would make your friends in Pasadena, California jealous. Make it yours for $284,900.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD
Down on the Deer Farm
The billion-dollar deer-farming industry in America produces generations of bucks growing progressively larger racks of antlers mainly for eventual bragging rights by the so-called “hunters” who will pay large fees to kill them in fenced-in fields just so they can hang the grotesque antlers in their dens. Even before the farm-raised deer are stalked (reported The Indianapolis Star in March in its multipart investigation), bucks’ necks habitually slump from the weight of the freakish antlers. Most states allow such “hunting,” and in some, the activity is lightly regulated, lacking the safety rules and more-humane conditions required by open-forest hunting laws and agriculture protocols. The Indianapolis Star also highlighted several captive-deer diseases that doctors still worry might jump species to humans (as “mad cow” disease did).
— News of the Weird has several times chronicled the sad saga of India’s holy but severely polluted Ganges River, on which millions of Hindus are dependent -- through hands-on worship -- for worldly success and for salvation. Now, recent reports reveal that the second-holiest river, the Yamuna, is suffering the same fate even though the government has invested nearly $1 billion in programs to clean it up. Currently, for example, more than 400 million gallons of untreated sewage, plus various industrial chemicals, enter the river from Delhi, but still, motivated worshippers come to “bathe” for glory. — Stories That Never Get Old: Dayton, Ohio, bus driver Rickey Wagoner, 49, survived a three-bullet shooting in February that, police said, was probably a gang initiation that randomly targeted him as he worked on his bus’s engine. A police
sergeant told the Dayton Daily News that Wagoner “should probably not be here” and survived the attack only because two of the bullets were blocked by a copy of “The Message” (a contemporary version of the Bible) in Wagoner’s shirt pocket. — The most recent “monument” offered by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals would be its proposed 10-foot tombstone along U.S. 129 in Gainesville, Ga., to honor the “several” chickens that were killed when a truck overturned in January. No humans were hurt in the collision, and had the chickens survived, they would have shortly been slaughtered. (The Georgia Department of Transportation rejected the proposal.) — Allowing dogs as “witnesses” in court cases in France has become “something of a recent trend,” reported the Paris edition of the European news site The Local in April. A 9-year-old Labrador retriever (Tango) took the witness stand in the city of Tours so the judge could observe how he reacted to the defendant, on trial for killing the dog’s owner. (For due process of law, a second dog, Norman, took the stand later, as a “control group.”) Ultimately, the judge said he learned nothing from the dogs and dismissed them. — “Zero Tolerance”: Yet another questionable school suspension was handed down in March, in Virginia Beach, Va., when the sixth-grader who had prevented a classmate from intentionally harming himself was punished for her altruism. Adrionna Harris had convinced a boy to hand over the razor blade he was threatening himself with, and she immediately discarded it. According to the principal, that transaction meant Harris “possessed” a “dangerous weapon,” albeit for a brief time, and she was suspended for 10 days, according to school policy. (After WAVY-TV’s “On Your Side” reporters got involved, the school relented, and Harris returned to class.)
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 35 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t keep love a secret. If you have feelings for someone, share your thoughts and make your intentions clear. Kind and considerate gestures will win the attention of someone you are pursuing, but aggressive behavior will put a wedge between you and the one you love. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Get involved in a cause or pastime that is unique and draws your attention. The people you meet who share your sentiments will offer an emotional connection with the potential to grow into a loving, long-lasting, committed relationship. Turn on the charm and pursue your personal dreams.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Be careful what you wish for when it comes to love. Your heart will be blind to the defects someone possesses. Proceed with caution, and refrain from doing things you wouldn’t do under normal circumstances. Protect your honor, reputation and physical well-being. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’ll shine in social settings, so get out, have fun and interact with people from different backgrounds. You will be drawn to creative, imaginative and passionate people. Share your plans, and you will be surprised by the suggestions and offers you receive to join you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your outgoing nature may work against you when it comes to love. Settle down and listen to what others have to say and offer. You may be surprised to discover that someone knows you and your likes almost as well as you do. Let relationships unfold naturally. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Get involved in courses, fundraisers, events and activities that interest you. Your ability to rise to the top no matter what you attempt to do will attract someone intrigued by your ability and attracted to your strength, courage and desire to conquer whatever comes your way.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ll have difficulty making up your mind when it comes to love. Before you make a promise to someone, question your true feelings. You are better to remain friends and refrain from leading someone on that you may not want to be intimate with in the future. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’ll be difficult to resist, and you’ll attract unusual and intriguing partners who will vie for your attention. Discuss your likes, dislikes and plans, and you will instinctively know who is a good fit for you and who is not. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec.
21): Don’t play with fire when it comes to love and romance. Deception, disillusionment and dishonesty will all play a major role in the way any romantic connection plays out. Don’t make promises you don’t intend to keep. Your word will be what counts and what saves your reputation. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t overpower or outdo in order to make an impression. You will look bad if you don’t give others a chance to meet you halfway. Look for someone to share with, not someone to own. The perfect partner will be the one offering the most, not a minion.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Aggressively seek someone who thrives on experimentation as much as you. The rush of love will hold your interest for a short time, but the person who can match you every step of the way mentally, physically, emotionally and financially will be the one to keep. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Share your secret desires, and you will attract someone with similar needs. A strong, passionate encounter will lead to a long-lasting connection that will bring you the security and stability you need to feel safe. Reveal your intentions, and suggest a plan for the future.
