Train your brain: communal education It’s unlikely that a single adult Rochesterian hasn’t at least heard the phrase “brain drain,” that bleak term we use to describe the phenomenon of our fresh college graduates fleeing the area in search of better prospects. The amount of educated, driven individuals in Rochester far exceeds the city’s limited amount of ready-made opportunities. But one thing that we haven’t fully taken advantage of yet is the wealth of our communal expertise, skill sets, and initiative.
Organizations like Rochester Brainery, Rochester Free School, and Rochester Makerspace are beginning to pool this communal knowledge and offer it to the public at little or no cost. We checked out some of these new independent, collective, community-education offerings and learned where you can go to gain a skill, teach a skill, use the kinds of tools found in a professional workshop, or just to get inspired by local makers and thinkers, and find out how you can help them with their endeavors.

Feedback Lessons from the CO2 level
People, whether they are elected officials or regular citizens, are remembered for both what they do and what they do not do (“A New CO2 Record,” News Blog). When I remember President Ronald Reagan, only one thing comes to mind. When faced with the emerging HIV/AIDS crisis, he did absolutely nothing. Just recently, the world was presented with information that the concentration of CO2 in Earth’s atmosphere had reached a distressing milestone of 400 parts per million. The question I have is this: What will YOU do now? I contemplate environmental issues every single day and ask myself what more I can do to help. And honestly, there is not much more I can personally do. My carbon footprint is small. I have been on a self-imposed gasoline limit of five gallons per week for over two years. But bigger questions loom right now that must take into consideration the 400 parts-per-million milestone. Considering development of new fossilfuel resources is insane. President Obama needs to stop Keystone XL, and Governor Cuomo needs to ban fracking in New York. Elected officials in general need to stop lying. There is no such thing as clean coal. Natural gas is not a bridge fuel to the future. It is a detour around efforts to develop and convert to renewable, sustainable, and truly clean energy sources. Natural gas is also a U-turn to old thinking. Gas companies and their spokespeople in elected office repeatedly tell us we are sitting on huge reserves of cheap natural gas, and this in turn leads back to thinking Americans have energy to waste. Four hundred parts per million is serious. Elected officials and citizens must take decisive action now and demand that even more
action be taken all around the world. How we respond to the news of 400 parts per million will decide what type of future Earth will have... or whether we have a future. TOM JANOWSKI
Reading Dave Frantz’s letter, “Government and Freedom” (Feedback, May 15), I was struck again by how absent facts are from conservative ideology. Assertions and generalizations are seldom backed up with substance. Conservatives have long been the major obstacle to rights and freedoms. Whether it was Jim Crow laws, denial of the vote for women, the blacklists of McCarthyism, or the spying and disruptive tactics against the antiwar movement of the ‘60s and ‘70s, conservatives have led the way. Today they remain largely opposed to gay marriage, and in states run by Republicans they’re pushing trans-vaginal probes and fetus videos on women seeking abortions, which they want to outlaw. They’re for torture and for wars that enable the state to take on greater repressive powers. And the antigovernment rhetoric leads to obstructionist tactics in Congress, blocking much needed efforts at gun control or infrastructure repair (which could create a couple of million new jobs). Alternative systems like fascism arose in the 20th century because people lost faith in their own democratic or republican forms of government. Government by megacorporations, secret police, and military are what you get when you destroy liberal government by for the people. Of course it is flawed, but as long as reform is possible it can work. The right-wing ideologues are stifling that possibility, and they are the ones with the starkest authoritarian profile.

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
What if we’re investing in the wrong education? A couple of weeks ago, I quoted data from the grim new report, “The State of Black Rochester.” The book, published by the Rochester Area Community foundation, lays out the growing crisis in the city’s black community: the poverty, the abysmally low achievement in school, the incidence of illness, the incarceration rate, all of which are much worse than for white Rochesterians. This is what Rochester is today. Without an intensive effort, things will get worse. And as Superintendent Bolgen Vargas writes in “The State of Black Rochester,” if we don’t make that effort, “the Rochester community can’t prosper, given that a significant proportion of the future growth of the population is projected to be largely African American and Latino.” Much of the problem is linked to education, and this community has tried repeatedly to deal with that, through charitable giving, school reform initiatives, business partnerships with schools, mentoring, tutoring, you name it. But a growing amount of research indicates that we’re waiting way too late to act. In a New York Times article last month, “Misdirected Investments in Education,” Eduardo Porter put it more bluntly: we’re spending our money and exerting our effort on the wrong things, he said. By the time children enter school, Porter wrote, the learning gap between children of well-educated mothers and those of poorly educated mothers – between rich and poor children – is so great that the latter will never catch up. School, said Porter, has barely any effect at all. Barely any effect at all. Porter cites research by Nobel laureate James Heckman, a University of Chicago economist who for more than a decade has studied early childhood education and development. But numerous other studies have shown the same thing: what happens during the first years of a child’s life – the stability of the child’s family and neighborhood, how much the child is spoken to (and how), the educational and cultural enrichment the child is exposed to – have a profound, lasting effect. It’s sometimes possible to counter the deficit children start school with, but I think Heckman and others are right: the longer we wait, the harder it is. By age 5 or 6, it seems to be nearly impossible. Even age 3 is late for intervention. Programs like the Nurse-Family Partnership, which works with new mothers from pregnancy on, have been shown to help, but those programs don’t get enough support to reach every family that needs help. Most of our effort and our money, locally and nationally, is focused on older children.
It’s sometimes possible to counter the deficit children start school with, but the longer we wait, the harder it is.

Porter cited a study by Julia Isaacs of the Urban Institute showing that in 2008, “federal and state governments spent somewhat more than $10,000 per child in kindergarten through 12th grade.” “By contrast,” Porter wrote, that year “3- to 5-year-olds got less than $5,000 for their education and care. Children under 3 got $300.” Early childhood development isn’t the only area we need to focus on. We do need to insure that children have excellent teachers; that pubic school dollars are spent wisely; that schools are excellent facilities; that all children have access to music, art, and other enrichment programs; that school-age children have access to health care. We can’t abandon our efforts to help school-age children do better, learn more, and have a bright future. And James Heckman’s critics say his studies are too limited to be taken as a repudiation of our K-12 efforts. Maybe so. On the other hand, they would certainly explain why our expensive, relentless efforts in education are having so little effect. And they would point us toward an effort that offers real promise. And so I am fixated on one quote from Porter’s article in the Times: The education gap “is there before kids walk into kindergarten,” Heckman told Porter. “School neither increases nor reduces it.” How much longer, then, can we put most of our effort into remediation? rochestercitynewspaper.com

Supreme Court to hear Greece prayer case
The US Supreme Court will consider a lawsuit challenging the Greece Town Board’s practice of holding prayers before meetings. The suit was brought by Greece residents Linda Stephens and Susan Galloway. It says that the board doesn’t require prayers to be “inclusive and nonsectarian,” and that the prayers have almost always been Christian, says a press release from a legal advocacy group assisting Stephens and Galloway.

No more mounted patrol?
Rochester Mayor Tom Richards has proposed a $482 million budget for 2013 to 2014 that cuts the city’s mounted patrol, closes the 311 service during the overnight hours, and defers a chunk of the city’s pension obligation. Parking fees in downtown garages would go up. The property tax rate would remain flat, but because of other factors, most tax bills would go up. Hearings on the budget will be held on June 4 and June 11. City Council will vote on June 18.

ENVIRONMENT | BY JEREMY MOULE
Emerald county With camping season set to begin, it’s time to talk firewood and its role in preventing the spread of the emerald ash borer, a destructive invasive species that has been found in Monroe County. Members of the Monroe County Emerald Ash Borer Task Force are trying to reinforce a simple message: don’t transport firewood from one part of the state to another. That’s a practice essential to preventing the spread of invasive insects like the ash borer to new parts of the state, they say. “We can stop this thing pretty much in its tracks,” says June

Summers, president of the Genesee Valley Audubon Society and a citizen member of the task force. Monroe County had its first confirmed emerald ash borer infestation in 2010; it’s one of several New York counties where the beetle’s presence is certain. The first Monroe infestation was found in the Town of Chili. Walt Nelson, the horticulture leader at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Monroe County, says the infestations are radiating out slowly from Chili’s southeast corner. There are active infestations in Riga, Chili, and Henrietta, Summers
says. And in 2011, the City of Rochester found and addressed an infestation at a park on St. Paul Street. But most of New York’s forests haven’t been hit by the ash borer. And state environmental regulations prohibit moving untreated firewood more than 50 miles from its source; treated firewood is heated to kill any hangers-on. The regulations are meant to protect against several invasive species including the emerald ash borer, Asian longhorned beetle, Sirex woodwasp, and hemlock woolly adelgid.

Lej fights intensify
The relationship between Republicans and Democrats in the Monroe County Legislature was strained before, but now the two sides are engaged in open warfare. The latest salvo was fired by the GOP, which wants to chop funding for the Democratic office by 10 percent. By Republicans’ logic, the funding should reflect the makeup of the Legislature, where the GOP has a 19 to 10 majority. But Democrats say the proposal is retaliation for several perceived acts of impertinence. The evidence: the legislation came out just after an acrimonious May 14 Legislature meeting. Barbs were traded and, at one point, a piece of pending Democratic legislation was suddenly brought up by Republicans and passed. The Republican majority then hijacked the legislation by ramming through its preferred appointments. Some sort of conflict was inevitable since it was the first time the Legislature met since County Executive Maggie Brooks fired Todd Spring as executive health director at Monroe Community Hospital. A state report said Spring mistreated a patient. During the May 14 meeting, legislators unanimously confirmed appointments to a newly reconstituted oversight board for the hospital — something Democrats have been wanting for years. Democratic Legislator Justin
Wilcox asked Lej President Jeff Adair, a Republican, why it didn’t happen sooner. Adair replied simply that now is a good time and that he’s “not going to dwell.” Also during the Willie Joe Lightfoot. meeting, Republicans PHOTO BY MARK voted to appoint CHAMBERLIN Republican Legislator Fred Ancello to the county’s fire advisory board, replacing Democratic Legislator Willie Joe Lightfoot. Lightfoot’s term expired in 2009, but it’s not unusual for the county to keep people on boards after their terms expire. Republicans also voted against reappointing Lightfoot to the Monroe County Airport Authority board. He could remain on the board, however, due to technicalities in the state law establishing the authority. Lightfoot has questioned the authority board’s independence and recently criticized two other proposed appointments to the board; he said the candidates are too close to the county government. “This is all just retaliation,” Lightfoot said after the May 14 meeting.
Planned Parenthood of the Rochester/ Syracuse Region will merge with the western New York affiliate. The new organization will be called Planned Parenthood of Central and Western New York. | The merger should be effective on January 1, 2014, pending approval of state officials since Planned Parenthood’s facilities are treated under law similarly to hospitals, says Jim Stewart, President and CEO of the Rochester/Syracuse Region. | The merging organizations have 10 health centers between them, Stewart says, none of which will close. Combined, the centers served 36,000 patients last year — and officials expect that number to grow, Stewart says. | The organizations will undergo some administrative consolidation. Stewart is retiring, and Karen Nelson, CEO of Planned Parenthood of Western New York, will head up Planned Parenthood of Central and Western New York. | Stewart says the merger will better position and prepare the organization for full implementation of the Affordable Care Act. In short, more people will have access to health care coverage, so Planned Parenthood expects to see an influx of new patients.

to Fulbright scholar One of Nangyalai Attal’s earliest memories is of watching foreign aircraft bomb the Afghan countryside. “I remember the people running and screaming,” he says. “I don’t remember if it was being done by the Soviets or the mujahideen who were trying to expel them. But I can still remember the horror of it.” And while many of his childhood friends never made it to adulthood — many fell victim to land mines — Attal has just celebrated his 25th birthday. A room at the RIT Inn and Conference Center overlooking the parking lot has served as Attal’s dorm for the last twoand-a-half months. A desk has almost disappeared under a heap of half-eaten snack foods, fruit, and the remains of a gift basket. And a small sign taped to the wall says, “Keep Calm and Carry On.” Attal has been a television reporter for an English news broadcast in Afghanistan, worked briefly for the United Nations, and is now earning his master’s degree at the Rochester Institute of Technology through a Fulbright scholarship. But in 2002, Attal’s life was completely different. He worked as a shepherd, herding sheep near his family’s home, south of Kabul, Afghanistan. Attal says he is still adjusting to living in the United States and its completely open culture after coming from an extremely closed society. But in many ways, Attal is emblematic of the contradictions and harsh extremes that are today’s Islamic Republic of Afghanistan — a country nearly calcified in tradition struggling to find its way to modernity. Even though much of Afghanistan has been in turmoil for years, Attal says he’s convinced that a new, more stable country is emerging. And after he finishes his education, he says he wants to return home to support that transition. While he’s in the US, however, Attal says he hopes to educate more Americans about Afghanistan. Even though the war in Afghanistan is the longest in US history, Attal says most Americans know relatively little about the country. Modern Afghanistan arose from an ancient society dating as far back as 3000 BC. The country, which connects the Middle East to the Indian subcontinent,
Fulbright scholar Nangyalai Attal says that despite a long and costly war, US citizens still don’t know much about Afghanistan. PHOTO BY MARK CHAMBERLIN
has long been a human migration route between early civilizations. Afghans were a mainstay in the Silk Road trade route to the Far East. After countless wars waged by everyone from Genghis Khan to the Soviet Union, Afghanistan has remained a largely tribal culture. Many things in Afghanistan culture have been done the same way for thousands of years, Attal says. In the US, children often leave home when they turn 18. “But in Afghanistan, we all live together with the parents,” Attal says. “Daughters will get married and they will leave to go to another household. But the sons and their families will stay until the parents decide when they should go.” Education is another issue where tradition is clashing with the aspirations of many young Afghans, he says. Attal’s father, like some older Afghans, didn’t envision an education for his children, especially his daughters, much beyond traditional schools where religion is a core subject. Attal says it was his strong-willed mother who supported the children’s education by making and selling handcrafted items and raising chickens. But public schools in Afghanistan after the departure of the Soviet army were not entirely about education. The Taliban, which had gained control of the country, would essentially raid rural schools for young boys to enlist in fighting, Attal says.
One period of violence was followed by another, he says, and the young boys were sent to a variety of fronts. “They [Taliban leaders] would come into the room and they would look and check for the moustache,” he says. “With no discussion and no decision on your part, they would say, ‘this is what you must do.’ My classmates, many of them were taken and never seen again. I was fortunate since I did not have the moustache, yet.” While most textbooks in his school were in Arabic, Attal managed to learn rudimentary English using a worn book titled “Beginner English 1.” The title still makes him grin. Attal says he studied English partly out of his interest in public speaking. “In my heart, I’ve always had the confidence of speaking to the people, and to go further,” he says. And a strange set of circumstances eventually gave him an opportunity in 2002 when he heard someone speaking English in his village. The Western media were following the US response to September 11. “Some foreign journalists came to our valley, and all these people were curious about who they were and what they were doing there,” Attal says. He surprised a woman by asking her name in English. Their immediate friendship and correspondence, which continues to this day, encouraged Attal
to find work as a translator and to advance his education. While the US-led coalition crushed the Taliban-run government and gained control of most of Afghanistan’s major cities, the Afghans’ initial jubilation was replaced with a new terror, particularly in the mountainous countryside. Taliban insurgents began a brutal assassination campaign. “The insurgents began hanging the public notices and warnings everywhere,” Attal says. If you knew English, he says, you could be targeted. In a matter of a few short years, Afghans went from dancing in the streets, grateful for their newfound freedom to having the doors to their homes busted down. Taliban insurgents searched homes for Western supporters and coalition forces searched them for Taliban supporters. “When you break into someone’s home, you’re breaking down the door to an entire culture,” Attal says. “You’re breaking the spirit.” Attal says there are many encouraging signs of redevelopment in
Afghanistan that don’t receive much attention from Western media — girls attending school and a virtual explosion of non-state-controlled media are among them. Education remains a critical ingredient to a prosperous and secure Afghanistan, Attal says. While the country sits on one of the world’s largest reserves of rare minerals essential to the creation of many high technology products, Attal says that many young Afghans lack the necessary skills to find employment. “I can tell you personally that if people [Western governments] spent $2 billion helping to create employment, the insurgency will drop dramatically,” Attal says. “If people have some kind of income to support their families, why would they turn to violence?”

The ol’ College Town try [ CHOW HOUND ] BY DAYNA PAPALEO
Well, a crucial chunk of the Inner Loop is offlimits for the next few months, traffic circles are apparently the new cupcake, and where Mount Hope and Elmwood avenues meet is being hacked to bits so that College Town may rise. But no amount of minor inconvenience is going to keep a true Rochesterian from good food, especially not if there’s a burger with fries and a milkshake at the end of that road. OK, maybe some gravy on those fries, too. And while we’re at it, let’s spike that milkshake. Bunga Burger Bar, from Bob St. George and Pittsford Pub owners Brad and Denise Sluman, isn’t the first restaurant to open in the blossoming College Town area, but it is the first locally owned one to avail itself of a newly built structure. The facade consists of tall windows that open completely, the fresh air, relaxed atmosphere, and vivid surroundings bringing to mind a really comfortable picnic as you cozy up to something from Bunga Burger Bar’s refreshingly unfussy menu. There are several salads, four chicken-wing preparations, a handful of sides (including yummy sweet potato fries glistening with honey), and sandwiches like classic beef on weck ($9.95), seared ahi tuna with yogurt-wasabi sauce
($12.50), or a balsamic-marinated portobello mushroom ($8.50). Of course there are burgers, each a halfpound of aged beef available with myriad toppings and sauces created by executive chef Tony Carvalho. Selections include the Pineapple Jack ($10.25), with bacon, mozzarella, and pineapple-rum salsa; and the Bourbon Street ($9.25) with BBQ sauce, onion strings, and aged cheddar. Bunga Burger Bar also offers 16 beers on tap along with a full bar that makes its way into the “adult shakes” ($9), such as a creamy-smokysweet bourbon-caramel milkshake that confirms summer is totally here. Bunga Burger Bar is located at 1370 Mt. Hope Ave. It is open Monday-Thursday 11:30 a.m.-11 p.m. (food served until 10 p.m.) and Friday-Saturday 11:30 a.m.-2 a.m. (food served until midnight). Food prices range from $4.25 to $12.50. For more information, call 360-4949 or visit Bunga Burger Bar’s Facebook page.
“There’s free dinner in the woods,” Olga Tzogas says with a laugh, but the head of Smugtown Mushrooms is very serious about her passion for foraging, a longstanding
practice that not only results in fresh, gratis grub, but one that Tzogas believes to be about community, sustainability, and DIY empowerment. Since its inception last year, Smugtown has been quietly building a following, and 2013 brought with it an increase in Smugtown’s educational offerings, many of which feature collaborations with other local artisans. Tzogas is also formulating plans for a retail space in Smugtown’s home base near the Rochester Public Market at 127 Railroad St., where it is currently cultivating its own mushrooms. And on the subject of mycology, Tzogas is truly ardent, waxing about the medicinal properties of mushrooms and other fungi. “Penicillin is a mold,” she says. “We pop it in pill form and we don’t even think about it.” So if you too are interested in the art and science of foraging, Smugtown will host a Mushroom and Herb Walk in Seneca Park on Saturday, May 25, at 4 p.m., and you can learn more about fascinating world of mushrooms at the Radical Mycology Meetup at Ellison Park on Tuesday, May 28, at 7 p.m. To participate in either event, visit Smugtown’s Facebook page, its website (smugtownmushrooms.com), or email firstname.lastname@example.org
As if there weren’t enough compelling reasons to wind through the Finger Lakes eating and drinking, now there’s the Sweet Treat Trail, which helpfully maps out places that you and your sweet tooth might enjoy visiting. Choose from apiaries, bakeries, fruit farms, and ice cream spots — or, actually, don’t choose, and just stop by all of them. First, though, do a little advance work at tourcayuga.com.
Ravioli Shop owner Bill Kenny has
announced the closing of his two retail spots on Saturday, May 25; until that time, both the North Winton Road and Courtney Drive locations will be selling their inventories of gourmet foods at 30 percent off. But filledpasta lovers, take heart: the wholesale business will continue, with Ravioli Shop creations available at places like Red Bird Market, Pittsford Farms Dairy, R’s Market, and, beginning June 1, Captain Jim’s Fish Market. Visit theraviolishop.com for more details.
Park Avenue creperie Delish Bakery is now closed after just more than a year in business. Rochester lost a couple of Indian restaurants in the last few weeks. Taste of India (3047 W. Henrietta Road) shut its doors, and Royal India (368 Jefferson Road), also closed, but the latter location is rumored to be the site of an upcoming resurrection of Monroe and Alexander’s much-missed Raj Mahal.

t’s unlikely that a single adult Rochesterian hasn’t at least heard the phrase “brain drain,” that bleak term we use to describe the phenomenon of our fresh college graduates fleeing the area in search of better prospects. The amount of educated, driven individuals in Rochester far exceeds the city’s limited amount of ready-made opportunities. But one thing that we haven’t fully taken advantage of yet is the wealth of our communal expertise, skill sets, and initiative. Various groups and organizations are beginning to pool this communal knowledge and offer it to residents
at little or no cost, and in turn, individuals and groups are beginning to shape the future of this city in a very doit-yourself manner. We checked out some of the newest independent, collective, community-education offerings and learned where you can go to gain a skill, teach a skill, use the kinds of tools found in a professional workshop, or just to get inspired by local makers and thinkers. Take a class on logo creation or fancy hula-hooping for $15, or get advice on a project you’re working on for free. This is a mere sampling of local alternative learning spaces.

Open for just a little more than two months, the grassroots Rochester Brainery hit the ground sprinting, now holding classes and events just about every night of the week. Offerings include everything from themed dinner workshops with Lento owner/chef Art Rogers on third Wednesdays (a threecourse meal including tip and wine for $50), film screenings, and monthly non-profit fundraisers (Girls Rock! Rochester will be featured on May 25; Habitat for Humanity is next up), plus a monthly day-long Brainery Bazaar that features 20 different local maker vendors each time. Rochester Brainery founders Danielle Raymo and Stephanie Rankin, who both work in marketing, believe that learning should be fun, affordable, and accessible. “Stephanie and I don’t have a lot of money to do extra things. We’re still paying back
10 CITY MAY 22-28, 2013
our college loans,” says Raymo. The duo were inspired by Brooklyn Brainery’s model, which offers a variety of inexpensive classes and creates social and professional connections amid the community, and wanted to offer a similar organization in Rochester. The local Brainery offers single-session, interactive classes that typically run two hours and cost between $15 and $30. Teachers are paid $25 per hour, or they may teach in exchange for two free class passes. Teachers are often local business owners who benefit from promoting their work while sharing skills with others. Past offerings have included everything from DIY graphic design to the basics of swing dancing, “Understanding Your Teen” parenting courses, social-media skills, jugband music classes, and “How to Save Money on Organic Foods.” Anyone who wants to teach may propose a class, and even if you don’t want to teach, you can propose a class
and the organizers will pursue finding a teacher for that area of interest. The organization is based in a chic little two-room unit in the Village Gate on North Goodman Street, has the capacity to host two classes at once (seating for up to 70 people), presentation amenities such as a projector and sound system, chalkboards and easels, and free sign-language interpretation services. The space is also rentable during the day (at $30 per hour, plus a $20 amenities fee) for business meetings, bridal showers, and other events. Rochester Brainery is located at 274 N. Goodman, suite B134. Classes cost $15-$30; check the website for a calendar of classes and events. For more information call 730-7034 or visit rochesterbrainery.com.
Located inside a sizable industrial building in the St. Paul district, Rochester Makerspace
offers 4,000 square feet of raw but beautifully managed space that houses a large, open workshop, a slightly smaller wood shop, and a growing collection of hand-made work surfaces, plus saws, routers, electronics, 3D printers, welding apparatuses, sewing machines, and more. The organization was cofounded by Rob Roll, who works in telecommunications but whose hobby is machining, and Wyatt McBain, an artist and third-year information-technology student at RIT. Though plans have been in the works for almost a year, the Makerspace has been operational for just over a month, and it offers membership and a sense of community, access to tools that would be too pricey for most individuals to have in a personal workshop collection, as well as classes that have so far included artistic cast concrete, woodblock printing, and stained glass. Roll and McBain have been working on the space for more than a year. Their initial interest in creating a communal area for creators and builders stemmed from the practicality of such a collective endeavor, to which they know others will be able to relate. “I’m a college student, I live in an apartment. I don’t have space to build anything, nor do I have money for the tools,” says McBain.

“The best part about the Makerspace is the sense of community,” says Roll, who says he has repeatedly witnessed the “really smart, extremely experienced people here” lend a hand to one another when they are stuck on a particular issue. Rochester Makerspace draws inspiration from a network of other makerspaces based around the country, such as Artisan’s Asylum, located outside of Boston, which grew from 1,000 square feet to 40,000 square feet within three years, and offers private work areas and artist studios in addition to classes and access to tools. Since Rochester Makerspace’s site went live, the organizers have received inquiries about renting studios and workspaces, and Roll and McBain plan to expand to include such rentable spaces as soon as it’s feasible. The organizers wish to offer a full spectrum of introductory courses and invite proposals from potential instructors for any kind of classes, whether industrial, electronic, fine art, or even wine-making. Introductory membership rates are $40 per month, whether individual or family, but rates will increase as the space becomes more settled and the founders have assessed the long-term needs of the space. Once members have taken the safety certification course to use the tools, they receive a key card and access to the building and use of those tools daily from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. (eventually cardholders will have 24/7 access). Classes range from $10 to $20 per hour, and the space offers free open nights on Thursdays beginning at 6 p.m., which function as an introduction to the space’s offerings, or as an opportunity to work on a project or help the organizers work on the space, and to connect with other creatives. Rochester Makerspace is located at 850 St. Paul St. (park in rear lot). Open hours are Monday & Thursday, 6-10 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Membership $40, classes range $10-$20/hour. For more information call 210-0075 or visit rochestermakerspace.org.
The Icarus Sessions
If you’re shy about getting your own creative endeavor started, want feedback from the community on something you’re working on, or just want to hear about what other creative Rochesterians are up to, attend The Icarus Sessions, which are a series of super-lightning talks held each third Wednesday night of the month at Hanlon-Fiske Studios on Elton Street. The concept came from Seth Godin’s book “The Icarus Deception,” which posits that while our industrialized society avoids the danger of flying too close to the sun, it has been skimming the water, afraid of taking creative chances. That dooms us just as well, says writer and artist Aprille Roelle Byam, local organizer of the Icarus Sessions.

Anyone who is interested may attend one of the events, at which they may choose to speak for 140 seconds about a particular project they are working on, even if it is stuck in the conceptual stage, and receive feedback from the audience. Attendees are not obliged to speak, and Byam says that many returners simply want to listen and offer support and advice. The first local iteration of the Icarus Sessions took place in January at a different venue before finding a permanent monthly meeting space at the Neighborhood of the Arts studio of photographers Michael Hanlon and Teri Fiske. Byam, Hanlon, and Fiske aim to provide a space where community creatives feel safe discussing their projects, and are enthusiastic about the resulting connections being made among individuals and groups who have shared. One of the most exciting aspects of the Sessions, says Hanlon, is putting likeminded people, who may not know each other, in a room together, and seeing what results. So far, the Icarus Sessions have featured photographers, writers, visual artists, and social-media specialists. The organizers have also added a keynote speaker to each session; presenters have included artist John Magnus, balloon artist Larry Moss, and 1975 Gallery owner Erich Lehman. The Icarus Sessions take place at 7 p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month at HanlonFiske Studios, 34 Elton St. Admission is continues on page 12

The band’s remaining members toured as The Other Ones and The Dead, or formed new groups including Furthur, RatDog, and Phil Lesh & Friends. Ex-Dead drummer Mickey Hart is no exception, and has kept on truckin’.Hart first perked my ears with his 1991 world-percussion “Planet Drum” CD that was one of my bachelor-pad soundtracks back in the day.

[ REVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
The Slackers are just so cool. The Bug Jar
was like a Frigidaire when these Brooklyn cats rolled through town to rock steady last Thursday night. The band’s groove is punctuated by an understated beat; it hits your hips and feet but never clobbers you over the head. And sure the groove is a solid, mid-tempo, pulsing ska, but elements like David Hillyard’s funky phrasing hint at much more. Friday afternoon marked my first plunge of the year into the sea of flowers and fried dough that is the Rochester Lilac Festival. Mikaela Davis was on stage with her abbreviated band and her mysteriously captivating sound. Davis’ harp dwarfed its diminutive master as she coaxed a wash of electric, eclectic color from the instrument. It was further complemented by some colorful guitar accents and trills that in spots sounded psychedelic. Her overall sound was gentle and sweet. This is what I imagine lilacs sound like. After Davis’ dewy delights, came the sweat, leather, and denim of the upstate troubadours in The Brian Lindsay Band. As I’ve said many times before, Lindsay is
our version The Boss — imagine “Darkness on the Edge of Smugtown.” Lindsay and his tight band of outlaws were loud and solid and rocking with a set of hardhitting Americana, celebrating where we stomp, hang our hats, pick up our women, and brag about all of it. And there’s just something about a Telecaster turned up and banged on and twanged on by a man with something to say. Power-chord masters from New Jersey The Smithereens followed with a cool set of hits opening with “Only A Memory” and closing with “A Girl Like You” with plenty of nods to The Beatles and The Who, along with the band’s own lengthy catalogue in a generous 90-minute set. Made it back to the festival one more day to see Big Sandy and his Fly-Rite Boys play some perfect Western swing. Dressed in Hawaiian shirts and cowboy boots, the band was the stylistic equivalent of the sound on stage. Guitarist Ashley Kingman was on fire as the band wove through its 25year catalogue, playing for the rug-cutters who adapted to the grass and dandelions.

It was a lopsided split when local band Boneyard disbanded last year. Cloudbusting singer JJ Lang went one way, while guitarist Mick Ditko, bassist Doug MacDonald, and drummer Brian Donnelly went another. Lang went on to form The JJ Lang Band and keep with his former band’s heavy, Southern gothic grind and wail. The other three added garage-rock guitarist Keith Suhr, tuned the guitars back up from Hell to A440, and went the more straight-ahead route to form Rock-n-Roll Social Club. Eardrums would never be the same. Rock-n-Roll Social Club is big and loud, no doubt. But it’s more hard than heavy. Perhaps it is the band’s hooks and acceleration that keep it out of the sludge that so many bands get stuck in when things get heavy. It’s simple: you start with a good song, find a band of musicians that get along (good luck), and then press “play.” Rock-n-Roll Social Club is currently in the studio located in the bowels of the House of Guitars, recording live, reelto-reel, warts and all. The band plans on emerging with an album this summer. The guys all sat down to fidget and kick each other under the table while fielding a few questions. An edited transcript of the conversation follows. CITY: The Boneyard split was amicable? Brian Donnelly: There’s no animosity at
all. Some people just wanted to go in a different direction and we wanted to tune the guitars up and have a different feel, just be more straight-up rock ’n’ roll, less of a Southern-rock feel. But it doesn’t sound all that different. Mick Ditko: It’s not that drastic. It’s not

like when JJ [Lang] left we went in an opposite direction. It’s just been a natural progression. We were drop C, and it was really difficult to keep the guitars in tune; it was all garbled together. You really had to struggle to hear different guitar parts. So you’re losing some of the weight? Donnelly: The way Keith plays is a little
different than any of us has experienced, so

we’re molding our style more toward that. It works and personally we’re the same. A lot of bands say that. Keith Suhr: It’s all a matter of perception.
We have nothing in common musically.
So how does a band that has nothing in common write material? Doug MacDonald: This is a band. It isn’t
one person bringing a song in. It’s got to be four guys writing and compromising and writing the best song possible. No one likes to be told their part or what to do? Suhr: I don’t care as long as it’s great. MacDonald: If it doesn’t work, it doesn’t work.
It’s got to fit Rock-n-Roll Social Club.
Could you all have embraced this cooperative spirit 20 years ago? Would Rock-n-Roll Social Club been able to exist? All: No! Ditko: It wouldn’t have worked. I have a
feeling Doug and I would have clashed.
Why is that? Ditko: Because Doug was the guy in the
bands he played in 20 years ago, and I was the guy in the bands I played in 20 years ago. MacDonald: When I was 27 I couldn’t compromise like I can today. Even If someone brought in a song and it was a good idea, my ego would get in the way. There’s no “the guy” in Rock-n-Roll Social Club Donnelly: Now I’m the guy.
So, older but wiser? Suhr: We’re candid with each other. Once
you’re over 40 you can say or hear anything. Also, nobody’s beating their head against wall for waiting for success. Ditko: Nobody’s worried about that. What constitutes a good song? Suhr: It’s got to shake asses. It’s got to
make feet move. MacDonald: I still want to rock ’n’ roll, but the older I get, the more I want to write stuff with some depth and meaning. Does recording live in the studio help maintain live-show energy and combat studio sterility? Suhr: I don’t like the studio at all; I’m
relieved we’re going to do it this way. Would the rockers you were 20 years ago hang out with the rockers you are today? MacDonald: I think I’d like the guy I am
now, but I wouldn’t hang out with him. I’d be out drinking and partying.

POP/ROCK | ALKALINE TRIO
True to its name, the foundation of Alkaline Trio consists of three musicians, albeit taken in different formations over the years. Despite different members having rotated in and out, frontman Matt Skiba remains the consistent force urging on the outfit. Formed in the mid-90’s, the punk rockers anchored Vagrant Records during its perch at the forefront of the emo surge in the early 00’s. The band subsequently moved on to major labels. Eschewing the brand of music usually associated with the emo tag, Alkaline Trio brought a darker brand of punk that’s all catchy riffs and satisfying propulsion; it’s pop/punk with a bit of an edge. Alkaline Trio plays Saturday, May 25, 7:30 p.m. at the Water Street Music Hall, 204 N. Water St. $19-$23. Waterstreetmusic.com. — BY DAVE LABARGE Ted Nicolosi and Shared Genes.

[ POP/ROCK ]
If you love Joywave, and have seen the band perform at least once within the past couple of years, you are likely to recognize the members of New Archery, previously known as Doctors. The two bands have played side-byside in many past local line-ups. However, the recent name-change has ushered in an entirely new identity, and sound, for this familiar band. As Doctors, the band’s sound was catchy, melodic, and pop-driven. As New Archery, the band has ditched the feel-good, structured, dancey sounds for music that has a much greater depth of feeling and a much looser approach to melody and structure. New Archery’s new knack for experimentation has allowed the band’s music to mature into something truly noteworthy and sincere. New Archery performs with Mikaela Davis, The Michael Valada Trio, and Par 6 on Saturday, May 25, 8 p.m. at The Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $6-$8.

Robert Harling’s “Steel Magnolias” has remained consistently popular since making its stage debut in 1987. Bolstered by a successful, star-studded film adaptation a few years later, the play continues to be staged at numerous theaters across the country and just last year was adapted again for a made-for-TV movie featuring an all-African-American cast. The play’s enduring relevancy likely stems from a combination of its strong female characters, its themes of the power of sisterhood, and its witty, memorable script. The show includes some powerful emotional moments that can border on melodrama, but Harling’s script balances out the pathos with some wickedly funny lines. The challenge with staging a show that has been turned into an iconic film is that, fairly or not, the production is going to be compared to the best-known version of the work. The production currently on stage at Blackfriars Theatre should please fans of the film (and the play itself) and includes some different wrinkles that add new interest to the work. The play is remarkably similar to the 1989
film version. Much of the dialogue from the movie was lifted from the play — including basically all of the choice zingers — as was
the entire plot. Six Southern women gather to discuss their various personal lives, with a particular emphasis on the complicated relationship between bride-to-be Shelby and her mother, M’lynn. The main differences between the film and the play are that the action of the play takes place entirely in Truvy’s beauty salon, and that none of the male characters ever appear — they are only mentioned in dialogue. The strict focus on the relationships between the women is a strength of the play, and allows some of the secondary characters to shine more brightly. Beautician Truvy’s mentor-turned-surrogate-mother role with odd duck Annelle is explored a bit more, as is recent widow Clairee’s discovery that life has much more to offer than simply being a small-town mayor’s wife. Director John Haldoupis has a talented cast, and one of this production’s greatest strengths is the easy, believable chemistry between all of the characters — these women really seem like lifelong friends. While every actor in the cast performs well, there are a few standouts. Mary Tiballi is breezy and natural as Shelby. The character is complex, because while Shelby is plucky and sweet (pink is her signature color), she’s also immensely stubborn and, arguably, a bit of a brat. Tiballi doesn’t shy away from any of Shelby’s negative characteristics, but brings a natural lightness to the role that makes us forget all about them as soon as she flashes that coquettish smile. Cara D’Manuele has the show-stealing role of Ouiser, and she commands the stage
as soon as she barges through Truvy’s screen door. D’Manuele’s Ousier is loud, brash, and liberal with licks from her acid tongue, but also believable in those moments when her carefully hidden humanity gets dragged out of her. D’Manuele also demonstrates excellent comic timing and body language. I found the most interesting portrayal in the show to be Alexa Scott as M’lynn. Scott appears younger than you might expect for a mother-of-the-bride role, and more importantly she’s more reserved than the sugary-sweet M’lynn from the film. This take makes more sense as the show goes along, given the complicated-yet-loving relationship she has with her daughter. Scott does an especially good job in the third scene, when M’lynn and Shelby hide an unspoken secret from the ladies in the salon. I worried that the more staid approach to the character might be problematic in the play’s final scene, which calls for M’lynn to have an emotional meltdown, but Scott cranks it to 11 in a raw, evocative performance. She’s clearly capable of hitting all the emotional notes, but needs to work on connecting the dots. M’lynn is in an unstable state by the end of the play, but there’s still a narrative disconnect for a woman to be wailing to the heavens one moment and giggling like a school girl the next. Director Haldoupis’s set features a
Spanish-moss backdrop that instantly sets the play in the swampy South, and the beauty-parlor interior makes full use of the Blackfriars stage. But the layout created some issues. One of the virtues of the current Blackfriars space is its quasi-in-theround setup. The actors in the show moved as they would in an actual salon. But depending on where they were standing when delivering their lines, some sections of the audience missed entire exchanges. For example, toward the end of the play Annelle takes a seat at the hair-washing station, with her back to half of the audience; I literally had no idea what she said at that point. Similarly, in the show’s emotional climax, several key lines were impossible to hear as the women swarmed around one another, including Clairee’s classic “Take a whack at Ouiser!” speech. Lana Momano also deserves praise for her costume and wig designs. Given that the show takes place in a salon, the look is important. Momano’s hairstyles range from substantially different looks for each scene for some of the characters (Shelby) to minor but still apparent changes for others (Truvy), all of it done between scene changes.

ART | “MORTAL: A PORTFOLIO OF WOODCUTS BY KIKI SMITH”
Meditations on mortality gain gravitas when we are faced with the finite nature of our mothers and fathers. The decline and death of a parent truly brings home the bittersweet fleetingness of our time here together. This is the driving theme in a body of work by American artist Kiki Smith, which will be shown at Memorial Art Gallery, beginning this week. On Friday, May 24, Memorial Art Gallery’s Lockhart Gallery (500 University Ave.) will open a new exhibition, “Mortal: A Portfolio of Woodcuts by Kiki Smith,” which explores the final stages of life of the artist’s mother. Simple, sparse lines etched into the wood form the fragile negative-space portraits of Smith’s precious kin; the gentle countenance of this elder is swathed in an undeniable field of inky darkness.

LITERATURE | LOU GRAMM BOOK SIGNING
I was enjoying a lively night at a local bar with friends recently when “Hot Blooded” shuffled on to the bartender’s eclectic playlist. One of our number, who is not from around here, made a face at the transition and hollered, “What is this music?” Without missing a beat, and as-cold-as-ice, the bartender quipped back, “You got a problem with Foreigner, you got a problem with yourself.” Such is the love that Rochesterians have for the British-American rock band, which counts among its members Rochester’s own Lou(is) Gramm(atico). The singer and songwriter is currently on a tour of a different sort, promoting his new book, “Juke Box Hero: My Five Decades in Rock ‘N’ Roll,” which was co-authored with Scott Pitoniak. You can meet the man himself at one of these local book signings, which begin this week. On Thursday, May 23, 7 p.m., Gramm and Pitoniak will be present at the Greece Barnes & Noble (330 Greece Ridge Center Drive), followed by a signing on Friday, May 24, 7 p.m., at Pittsford Barnes & Noble (Pittsford Plaza, 3349 Monroe Ave.). The authors will be present June 1, 5 p.m., at House of Guitars (645 Titus Ave.). Admission to each of these events is free. On July 26, Gramm is scheduled to sing the National Anthem at the Rochester Red Wings game at Frontier Field (1 Morrie Silver Way) at 5:45 p.m. He will also sign books in the concourse, and tickets to the game are required for this event.

Gender studies “Venus in Fur” THROUGH JUNE 2 GEVA THEATRE NEXTSTAGE, 75 WOODBURY BLVD. TICKETS START AT $27 | 232-4382, GEVATHEATRE.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY ERIC REZSNYAK
“Venus in Furs” is not pornography. We are told this several times by Thomas, the playwright appearing in the play “Venus in Fur” (note the singular), now playing on the Geva Theatre Nextstage. In Geva’s “Venus,” Thomas is the writer and director of a theatrical adaptation of the controversial 1870 novel “Venus in Furs” by Austrian writer Leopold von Sacher-Masoch — the book and writer that inspired the term masochism, as in sadomasochism, or S&M, the sexual kink involving domination and submission. But the book, and the play about the book, and the play about the play, aren’t about S&M. Not really. The play about the play, at the very least, is about men and women, how men see women, and how little has changed in the nearly 150 years since the source material was published. The play is set in modern times, opening with Thomas the playwright-director (Todd d’Amour) bemoaning to an unidentified character on the other end of a cell phone about his failure to cast the lead in his stage version of “Venus in Furs.” None of the several-dozen women he auditioned were 24 CITY MAY 22-28, 2013
right for the part of Wanda, who in the book is begged by dilettante Severin to dominate and degrade him to fulfill his sexual desires. Thomas explains to the person on the other end of the line that all of the actresses were too young, too old, too stupid, too inexperienced, or came dressed as “sluts or dykes,” and not one of them displayed even a hint of oldworld femininity. Suddenly another actress, Vanda (Veronica Russell), bursts into the studio, supposedly hours late for an audition Thomas can’t even find on the books. First impressions suggest that Vanda embodies all of the problems Thomas has found casting the play — she’s crude, loud, unprofessional, and comes dressed in a corset and leather skirt. Thomas casually insults her and tries to shoo her out the door, but Vanda cajoles Thomas into letting her audition. She produces an 19th-century-style gown from a bag full of props, puts on an astonishingly convincing performance, and slowly reveals that she is quite familiar with both the source material and Thomas’s play — and Thomas has no idea how she got the full script. Both Thomas and the audience realize that there is much more to Vanda than she’s letting on, and she sets about putting Thomas through a series of mind games that mirror the complicated power dynamic in the original novel. All the while she forces Thomas to explain his personal thoughts on women, and how they are presented in a play that, in the end, leaves
Playwright David Ives has crafted a complicated meta-fictional structure that makes for fascinating viewing. One of the most interesting things about the play is that different people will likely have wildly different interpretations depending on the personal baggage they bring to the theater. The characters switch from the director-actor dynamic seamlessly into reenacting scenes from the play and book, and then back to analyzing the subtext of what’s going on before diving back into the next scene. Gender roles are dissected as Vanda explores not only Wanda, but also the goddess Venus herself, and Thomas takes on the role of Severin. In the end, the roles are reversed, and the naked truth of Thomas-Severin’s take on female sexuality is made fully apparent. The cast features only two actors. Veronica Russell is truly sensational as Vanda, bringing to life at least three nuanced characters, slipping between them easily and fully. She delivers a remarkable range of emotions and affectations, and there’s not a moment of the performance that feels unbelievable. Her assured performance makes the last-second twist more believable, even possibly inevitable given the context of the show. Todd D’Amour initially overplays the role of Thomas, all twitchy and manic, but his take ultimately rings true to a creative mind with an ego problem. He becomes much more interesting once he starts acting in the role of Severin, and it’s fascinating to watch his justifications crumble as he becomes completely intoxicated by the livewire in front of him. Director Aimee Hayes keeps the play moving forward as the two characters engage in a dance in which the partners deliberately step on one another’s toes. There are times where the circuitous logic of the play becomes repetitive, but that’s kind of the point. As Vanda tries to come at the material from multiple angles, Thomas continues to either dismiss the criticisms or try to rationalize his stance. He simply doesn’t get it. And as anyone who has tried to argue the point of female sexual equality in a stillpatriarchal society can attest, that is not at all uncommon even in 2013.

RECREATION | RED WHITE AND BLUE BALLOON RALLY
I’m not afraid of heights, I just don’t particularly enjoy moving too quickly too far above ground level (rock climbing and motorcycles are just fine, go figure). That’s what I tell my buddies when they try to get me to join them for a day of riding rollercoasters. Never mind that flying in airplanes doesn’t faze me at all — I think it has something to do with the goal of travel, versus the pointlessness of a thrill ride. Whatever. If you’re a combination-velocity-altitudephobe like me, or if you just fancy the idea of viewing the gorge-ous vistas of Letchworth State National Park from above, take part in the Red White and Blue Balloon Rally, to be held at the park in Castile this week. Thirty hot-air balloons will ascend from the Letchworth gorge, piloted by professionals from several states. Bring your cameras! The balloons will launch from the Archery Field Overlook on the main park road at the Castile Entrance, about one mile north of the Glen Iris Inn. Launch times are approximate and are weather-dependent. To participate as a balloon passenger, call 493-3340 to book a flight soon, as spaces fill up quickly. Six scheduled balloon flights will take place daily from Friday, May 24, through Monday, May 27.

The creators and several cast members of the successful production “Hide the Moon: Based on Salome,” which debuted at the premier Rochester Fringe Festival in 2012, are reuniting with a new show on Friday, May 24. MuCCC (142 Atlantic Ave.) will host one performance of “TALK/RADIO,” a music and theater performance project by Eastman School of Music students featuring several different historical radio genre scripts. The 8 p.m. show will feature “fresh, modern underscoring, using a different musical style to fit each radio station,” says co-creator and Eastman faculty member Alison Moritz. Four of the featured songs in the show have been “crowd sourced” via Kickstarter — the first four people to donate $50 got to choose any song, from any genre, that they wanted to hear. The Kickstarter page provides the following info on the production, which is inspired by the works of David Lynch: “If ‘Hide the Moon’ explored the shocking, sexy underbelly of opera, then ‘Talk/Radio’ aims to rediscover radio in a similar fashion, creating nostalgia for something you didn’t even know you missed.” Admission is free, and the evening includes a casual postshow jam session featuring nostalgia and kitsch by The Weldon Ukelelists.

Back to the past via the future [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA
“Star Trek Into Darkness” (PG-13), DIRECTED BY J.J. ABRAMS NOW PLAYING
Decades after the famous TV show and its several sequels, after numerous feature-length adaptations, after wearing out generations of crew members, including the most famous captains, Kirk and Picard, the “Star Trek” franchise continues to boldly go where it has gone many times before. For the latest addition to the franchise, “Star Trek Into Darkness,” the director, J.J. Abrams, chooses the easiest route to other galactic destinations by simply
repeating a good deal of the original show and some elements from previous entries in the series, a very bad decision indeed. Most of the cast from the last film, released in 2009, returns for the new one, which continues the prequel’s story of the young James Kirk (Chris Pine) and his friend Spock (Zachary Quinto) teaming together to fight some new enemies. Those enemies in fact look strikingly familiar — the chief antagonist is a genetically engineered superman named Khan, originally played by Ricardo Montalban back in1982, now impersonated by Benedict Cumberbatch. With the assistance of a traitorous admiral (Peter Weller), Khan attempts to resurrect his crew, all supermen cryogenically frozen 300 years earlier, and of course wage war on the Federation and rule the galaxy or some large area of outer space. That situation grows increasingly complicated when the script dusts off some old material, like problems with the starship’s core reactor, which naturally might blow up at any minute,

an encounter with those nasty Klingons, and all the internal wrangling between Kirk and Scotty (Simon Pegg), Kirk and Bones (Karl Urban), and Kirk and Spock. The relationship between the captain and his first officer follows the usual dialectic of friendship versus duty, emotion versus logic, humanism versus Vulcanism; the new element from the previous movie, the unlikely romance between Spock and Uhura (Zoe Saldana), continues to develop. The strangest feature of “Star Trek Into Darkness” stems from its blatant appeal to nostalgia. All the cast not only plays all our old friends — Scotty, Sulu, Chekov, Bones, etc., — but they simply imitate the actors who played them in the original series. Simon Pegg plays not only Chief Engineer Scott but also James Doohan; Karl Urban plays not only Dr. McCoy but also DeForest Kelley; Anton Yelchin plays not only Chekov but Walter Koenig, and so on, resulting in a weird, extended exercise in impersonation. Naturally the two major actors also attempt a kind of impersonation, so Chris Pine, who looks a little like the young William Shatner, utters Shatneresque lines and strikes Shatneresque attitudes. Zachary Quinto, who looks very like young Leonard Nimoy (the original pops up in an odd cameo, by the way), simply keeps his face frozen and speaks in the Spocky dry, cold, affectless manner. Beyond their appearance, the behavior of the two principals follows a predictable path,

Sowing discontent [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
“At Any Price” (R), DIRECTED BY RAMIN BAHRANI OPENS FRIDAY
with Spock insisting constantly and tiresomely on the logic of his actions and reactions, while Kirk warmly endorses the primacy of human feeling: most touching. Otherwise Kirk remains a horny young man, boldly going where few have gone before with a number of attractive young women, landing in trouble through insubordination, and violating the Prime Directive all over the galaxy. The director’s fidelity to the original extends not only to the appearance of the starship “Enterprise” and the interior design, but even to the cast’s uniforms. The male actors all wear those cheesy pajamas first modeled back in 1968, while the females dress in very short miniskirts that look like the costumes of high-school cheerleaders. Since this “Star Trek” is filmed in 3D, the director shows various objects flying at the audience — starships, equipment, space debris, and crew members — and a long fight between Spock and Khan with the two characters jumping off high buildings and battling in midair on flying platforms. The vocabulary remains the same, however, with the usual references to photon torpedoes, phasers set on stun, dilithium crystals, and so forth, which may comfort the huge body of fans around the globe and perhaps the galaxy. Like most Hollywood blockbusters of whatever level of quality, “Star Trek Into Darkness” will probably succeed at the box office, pleasing Trekkies and Trekkers; it may also induce in many others a kind of Trekinosis.
When we first meet Henry Whipple, the farmer and seed salesman played by Dennis Quaid in Ramin Bahrani’s “At Any Price,” he’s crashing a funeral with his reluctant son, Dean (Zac Efron), in tow, hoping to take some land off the hands of the dead man’s poor, bereaved family. It’s not the sort of introduction that inspires much sympathy from the audience and, for the most part, the film never attempts to turn Henry into anything resembling a likeable human being. Still, Quaid is an actor of such charisma that he nearly makes it possible to care about what happens to the man. Nearly. Henry is a moderately successful salesman for the Liberty seed company, as well as the owner of Whipple Farm, a family business passed down through four generations, and one that he hopes to eventually leave to his sons. The future of the business is in question, however. His eldest son, Grant, has chosen not to return home after graduating from Iowa State, opting instead to climb mountains and explore the world. Meanwhile, Dean is more interested in racing cars and dreams

of one day making it to NASCAR. The script never delves too deeply into the family’s past, but it’s clear that Henry’s intense need for more (land, money, respect) has had the effect of driving his sons away from him. Henry is all but on his own, frantically attempting to hold off Jim Johnson (Clancy Brown) and his sons, the most successful salesmen in the state, who are quickly encroaching on Henry’s territory. Then Liberty gets tipped off that Henry may have been washing and reselling their genetically modified seeds (which is evidently very much illegal) to other farms in the area, and the company launches an investigation, with the possible result of criminal charges. There’s a Willy Loman-esque desperation to Henry’s need to climb the rungs of fortune; he’s taken the Liberty company motto, “Expand or Die,” to heart. He’s more than willing to sell his soul in exchange for growth and prosperity. He does receive some support from the women in his life, including Dean’s girlfriend, Cadence (Maika Monroe), who discovers she’s got a knack for the seed business. This development allows her character to develop beyond the role of simply “the girlfriend,” and Monroe is a talented enough actress that Cadence quickly becomes one of the film’s most compelling characters. Henry’s wife, Irene (Kim Dickens, HBO’s “Treme”), has a limited role, but her handful of key scenes prove that she’s a real source of strength within the family. Finally, there’s also Henry’s mistress, Meredith (Heather Graham), but calling her role underwritten would be putting it mildly. She exists as a plot point, only around to provide a source of conflict between Henry and Irene, then later, once she decides to start chasing after the younger Whipple man, between Dean and Cadence. Quaid is the center of the film, and he turns in a remarkable performance.
He makes the bitter, dishonest, and often weasel-like Henry into a fascinating character, even as the script continuously lets him down. Efron is fine, despite not being entirely convincing as a hottempered, hard-drinking race-car driver. I give him credit for continuing to shed his Disney movie image by choosing interesting roles, even if he doesn’t yet quite have the chops to pull them off. As the events of the film turn ever darker, I found myself not only uninterested in the Whipples’ success, but actively hoping for their downfall. I’m all for movies about people who aren’t entirely sympathetic, but I detected more than a hint of disdain from Bahrani for his characters. He seems to be judging them for compromising their integrity, which may be appropriate, but dramatically it isn’t very interesting. As the film progressed, it was hard not to imagine him wagging his finger at these characters from behind the camera lens. But the film is always impeccably crafted; the vast, green fields of crops are lovingly and artfully photographed by Director of Photography Michael Simmonds. Bahrani has designed the film to function as an indictment of the state of agriculture in our country today, and by extension, society as a whole. This aspect of the story is clearly where Bahrani’s interest lies, but for some unknown reason his script (Bahrani shares writing credit with Hallie Elizabeth Newton) welds it together with a plot that wouldn’t feel out of place in a retro, 50’s-style melodrama. He’s a director known for gritty, microbudgeted films with a sharply drawn and precise sense of place: “Man Push Cart,” “Chop Shop,” and “Goodbye Solo.” But “At Any Price” marks his first attempt at a “Hollywood” picture with major stars, and it feels as though he didn’t trust a more mainstream audience to stick with him without some overblown dramatic pyrotechnics to hold their interest.

leading to a small sleeping porch overlooking the yard. The master bedroom, which has white painted trim, spans the width of the house and boasts two closets. The dark red bathroom, with its black and white checkered floor, has a lovely original pedestal tub. Nicely painted stairs lead to the finished attic. With windows on three sides, pale painted wood floors, and a multitude of ceiling angles, the attic is bright and attractive. It could be used as an office, play space or guest bedroom, and has a generous adjoining storage room. The .11 acre property has a fully-fenced backyard and attractive plantings. Next to the single detached garage is a square brick patio under a grape arbor and a small pond with waterfall. This is the perfect setting for summertime meals outdoors or sitting by a fire pit on cool nights. This house is located in the Culver-WintonMain neighborhood, within walking distance of a variety of businesses and restaurants. The house offers 1,823 square feet of living space and is listed at $117,900 with taxes of $3,661.

High school senior Kyndra Vaught won this year’s Miss Snake Charmer, wearing jeweled boots one night for her country-western ballad, then Kevlar boots and camouflage chaps the next as she took on dozens of rattlers in the wooden snake pit. Vaught expertly held up one serpent, offered its tailend rattles for a baby to touch, then helped hold, measure, milk and skin a buzzing, slithery serpent. A Los Angeles Times dispatch noted that Vaught hoped to be on her way soon to the Berklee College of Music in Boston. [Los Angeles Times, 4-12-2013]
The Continuing Crisis
— That there are flea “circuses” is bizarre enough, but in March a cold spell in Germany wiped out an entire troupe of “performing” fleas, requiring the flea whisperer to secure replacements (because, of course, the show must go on). Trainer Robert Birk reached out to a university near Mechernich-Kommern for 50 substitutes, which he apparently worked into the act over one weekend. (Fleas, with or without training, can pull up to 160,000 times their own weight and leap to 100 times their own height.) [The Independent (London), 3-31-2013] — The owner of a restaurant in southern Sweden told authorities in March that the former owner had assured him that “everything had been ap-
proved,” apparently including the appliance the restaurant used for mixing salad dressings and sauces -- which was a table-model cement mixer. When health officials told the owner that it certainly was not “approved,” he immediately bought another, “rustfree,” mixer. (Health authorities had come to the restaurant on a complaint that a screw had turned up in a customer’s kabob.) [The Local (Stockholm), 3-30-2013]
— Chad Pregracke, 38, a Mississippi River legend, spends nine months a year hauling heavy-duty litter out of waterways with his crew of 12. He told CNN in March that he has yanked up 218 washing machines, 19 tractors, four pianos and nearly 1,000 refrigerators -- totaling over 3,500 tons of trash -- and has collected the world’s largest array of bottles with messages inside (63). [CNN, 4-18-2013] — Eliel Santos fishes the grates of New York City seven days a week, reeling in enough bounty to sustain him for the last eight years, he told the New York Post in April. The “fishing line” Santos, 38, uses is dental floss, with electrician’s tape and Blue-Touch mouse glue -- equipment that “he controls with the precision of an archer,” the Post reported. His biggest catch ever was a $1,800 (pawned value) gold and diamond bracelet, but the most popular current items are iPhones, which texting-on-the-move pedestrians apparently have trouble hanging onto.

[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 34 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Get out and join in community events that will help you meet new people and make new friends. Share your stories, knowledge and expertise, and you will attract someone who has as much to offer as you. Don’t be afraid to show your emotions. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Keep life simple. If you backpedal, you will discover that nothing has changed. Leave old flames in your past. Deception and disillusionment are prevalent if you let sob stories override your common sense when it comes to relationships that left you in a
hurt and vulnerable position. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Play the game of love. Take a chance and put your heart on the line. Love is in the stars, and the partner who can offer you the excitement and commitment you are looking for steps up — you just have to acknowledge the persistence and devotion this person has for you. CANCER (June 21-July 22): What you see and what you get are probably not going to be the same. Take a reserved approach to someone trying to push you into a commitment. Set your standards high, and make sure that you call the shots when it comes to love.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t get angry, get busy. The more you do to boost your ego and build your confidence, the better you will do when it comes to love and romance. Don’t settle for less when you can have so much more. Experiment and explore your options, and you will find the perfect partner. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t make a promise prematurely. Not everyone will be honest regarding feelings and future propositions. Make whomever you are attracted to win your heart. Settling for less will not lead to a long-lasting union. Bide your time and explore all
avenues before you make a commitment. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The more you get out and interact with others, the better your chance of meeting someone special. Travel, attending conferences, online dating and signing up for something you think you might enjoy will all lead to love and romance. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’ll attract partners of a very unusual nature. Take precautions when it comes to money. Joint ventures mixed with love and romance will turn out to be costly. A creative and imaginative approach to love coupled with a
strict budget is the way to go. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll attract too many partners, and this can cause a problem for you if you aren’t open and honest about the way you feel and the number of people with whom you are spending time. The way you choose to proceed will determine the caliber of partner you end up with. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’ll attract someone who is off-limits. Be careful not to mix business with pleasure or to allow someone you work with to ruin your reputation. Move forward cautiously, and keep your distance from anyone appearing to be erratic,
unpredictable or impulsive. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Put your heart on the line, and be ready to share your feelings with someone just as adventuresome and experimental as you. Love at first sight can lead to a fast-paced relationship that ends in a live-in situation. Do your background checks first. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Not everyone you encounter will be honest with you. Expect someone to portray an image of what you want and expect rather than what the person is actually like or has to offer, and don’t try to fool yourself into thinking you can change to suit someone’s needs.
