sit on a bus for 20 minutes and attend one of the better elementary schools in the state. Ask us what we prefer. But wait; can you? Do you know 10 or 12 families living in the city? Do you know any families living in poverty, people of color, who have school-age children?
Busing the students
On our interview with educator Bill Cala, “Regional Schools: Are They the Answer? Do We Have the Will?”: As a graduate of
“Do disadvantaged families really want to see their children bused all over the county in order to assuage liberal editorial writers’ white guilt?” (A reader’s comment on Urban Journal’s “Segregation Forever”). This is the neo-racism of 2014: When you hear “residency requirement” for schools, think legalized segregation. When you hear “those kids,” think the n-word or some other derogatory word for an immigrant or person of color. When you hear “students who are behavior problems,” think poor, disadvantaged, and voiceless. We have arrived at a point where our educational system is structured to keep community members who need the most and deserve the best (as we all do) separate from those living nearby who have the means to help. We have the answer to helping those in need: ending legal segregation in Monroe County. Integrate our schools. But parents do not currently have “choice” in this county. For clear, rational evidence on why this is a good idea, read “The Benefits of Mixing Rich and Poor” by David L. Kirp, posted in the New York Times on May 10. “Busing them all over the county”? Why don’t you ask us? Ask us if we would like our children to attend the neighborhood school put on the priority list, where it is not safe to walk to school, or if we would like to have our child 2 CITY
Education – city and suburbs
Monroe High School, class of 1987, I was so lucky to go to Rochester city schools back when there was a mix of races, of income levels. I took classes with recent immigrants from East Asia, with students who were Latino, with students who were African-American. I would love to see regional schools become a reality. I can understand the fear – but why not start small, work out the kinks, and take on growth slowly? Surely the city has nothing to lose – and surely the kids from the suburbs would have surprisingly so much to gain. JEROME JAMES O’NEILL
The big lie spewed by regional school proponents is that putting low-performing kids into suburban school districts is only going to have positive effects, with no negative effects. But the article features a quote that, in effect, refutes that: “Many years of research have confirmed what all parents know: kids learn from one another....” So what do you suppose suburban kids are going to “learn” from some of the gang bangers, punks, and disruptive individuals that overly compensated do-gooders like Bill Cala want to dump into suburban schools? You take these kids that are currently two, three, and four grade levels below their stated grade level and inject them into

suburban districts, and you end up screwing up the educations of hundreds if not thousands of kids in the process. No thanks. ANIMULE
I live in the city, send my kids to city schools, and teach in the Rochester City School District. Bill Cala is challenging everyone to think outside of the box. My students are not “gang bangers,” they are children: children who deserve a chance, and that is what Bill Cala is offering. Thank you, Bill Cala, from someone who gets it.

Ukraine and the US
On Doug Noble’s guest commentary, “Facts, Fiction, and Ukraine”: The author
in his anti-war activism not only repeats all the clichés of the Kremlin propaganda, but even goes beyond it. Not even the Kremlin takes the recent farce in eastern Ukraine seriously enough to call it “referenda” without quotation marks. Mr. Noble, if you spent some time researching the readily available information from Ukraine, you wouldn’t call the Russian aggression “alleged.” You wouldn’t repeat the myth about thousands of paid Maidan activists.

The author doesn’t say anything regarding the Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances. The Memorandum is a political agreement signed in Budapest, Hungary, on 5 December 1994, providing security assurances by its signatories relating to Ukraine’s accession to the Treaty on the NonProliferation of Nuclear Weapons. The Memorandum was originally signed by three nuclear powers: the Russian Federation, the United States of America, and the United Kingdom. China and France gave somewhat weaker individual assurances in separate documents. The memorandum included security assurances against threats or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of Ukraine as well as those of Belarus and Kazakhstan. As a result, Ukraine gave up the world’s third largest nuclear weapons stockpile between 1994 and 1996. Following the 2014 Crimean crisis, the US, Canada, and the UK all separately stated that Russian involvement is in breach of its obligations to Ukraine under the Budapest Memorandum and in clear violation of Ukrainian sovereignty and territorial integrity.

On 98.9 The BUZZ radio hosts Kimberly and Beck’s ridiculing of transgender people (News Blog): Maybe
I’m alone in this opinion, but they’ve been espousing the same abusive, bigoted, hateful comments for awhile now, whether it’s about a specific person or group of people. The show contributes next to nothing good. I can feel my IQ dropping any time I end up accidentally tuning into it on my morning drive. The entire show is an embarrassment to our city. A good quote that is widely attributed to Eleanor Roosevelt, currently disputed, sums my point up well: “Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people.” CHRIS OLIN
Freedom of speech applies to everyone. Don’t like what you hear? Change the station. And if someone wants to go from a he to a she and vice versa, then it’s an elective surgery. They should pay for it. Good for Kimberly and Beck stating something that most Americans are thinking, just too scared to say because people are too quick to be offended. SARAH BUMBARGER
Free speech means the government cannot stop you from expressing controversial opinions. It doesn’t mean that a private corporation needs to give a microphone to an idiot. In this case, two radio hosts embarrassed their employer enough to cost advertising dollars and be fired. Free speech has nothing to do with it. STEVE SMITH
So we all gather in the comments section of a news site and do exactly what Kimberly and Beck did: talk smack about people none of us have even met, riding high on our horse, stroking our egos, and pretending we have done something constructive by acting exactly like the people we profess so deeply to dislike.

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
Bigotry, shock jocks, and corporate ethics You can make plenty of money spreading ridicule and bigotry, and commercial radio and television companies have become masters at it. And so last week, a Rochester radio duo known as Kimberly and Beck did what their employer was paying them to do: they played to the baser instincts of their listeners. Taking an innocuous news item emanating from City Hall, they used it to launch 12 minutes of ridicule aimed at transgender people – and, along the way, at people with mental illness. The Kimberly and Beck show isn’t a place you’d go to find enlightened discourse about much of anything. Best I can tell from the few segments I listened to online, their favorite topics include sex, sex acts, and genitals. NPR it is not. So in that respect, maybe it wasn’t surprising that their eyes lit up when they heard that Mayor Lovely Warren was going to expand health-insurance coverage for city employees to include surgery and counseling for transgender people. It’s one thing, though, to be crude on the public airways. We don’t have to listen. Ridiculing people, and fostering bigotry and hatred, is quite another. This is not, as some have suggested, a question of political correctness. Bigotry is harmful. And the hatred it fosters has real – and too often, violent – consequences. The day after the Kimberly-and-Beck rant on The BUZZ radio station, their employer, Entercom, fired them, saying their comments “do not represent our station or our community.” And on Friday, the media received a press release bearing the “Kimberly and Beck” name, apologizing “for the hurt and pain we have caused anyone, especially those in the Transgender community and their friends and families.” It was a curious press release. It said that the two were sorry for their lack of “sensitivity and understanding of the Transgender people,” implying that they weren’t well informed about transgender issues. But it also said this: “Entercom has been and will continue to be a strong advocate for the LGBT community and we are proud to have been helpful in Entercom’s efforts over our 13 years with the company.” Proud to have been helpful in Entercom’s efforts in advocating for the LGBT community? I don’t know which would be worse: that Kimberly and Beck are as poorly informed and insensitive as they sounded during their rant against transgender people or that they did know the facts but didn’t care because they figured that is exactly what they’re paid to do: toss red meat to their audience.
Which would be worse: that Kimberly and Beck are as poorly informed as they sounded or that they knew the facts but didn’t care? (And, of course, on this particular topic, they had a red-meat two-fer: the news peg was a policy proposed by Rochester’s African-American woman mayor.) Kimberly and Beck weren’t the only media “personalities” using Warren’s new policy to fire up their fans. Predictably, Clear Channel’s Bob Lonsberry had a field day on his blog, ridiculing not only transgender people but the entire LGBT community – the “alphabet-soup community,” as he put it. In the past, Lonsberry has lost his job for things like this, but he always lands on his feet, gets back on the air, and gets right back at it. I assume the same will be true of Kimberly and Beck. Because fueling ridicule and bigotry draws listeners. It makes money. It’s important to speak out against the Kimberly-and-Becks and Lonsberrys and all the other shock jocks. Important, too, to make sure they become well informed, not only about LGBT issues but also about the real, very serious harm they do by spreading ignorance and bigotry. But it’s also important to remember that they’re not the only offenders. Their corporate employers know what they’re doing when they hire people like this. The corporations are the ones who encourage them to throw red meat to build audiences. They’re the ones who encourage the shock jocks to skate close to the edge. So far, those corporate apologies feel mighty thin.

Robert Slaughter dies
Robert Slaughter, husband to long-serving Democratic Congress member Louise Slaughter, died at age 82 in Washington, DC. The couple had been married 57 years. “Mrs. Slaughter and her family deeply appreciate the thoughts and prayers of the community as they work through this difficult time,” says a press release from Louise Slaughter’s office.
Radio hosts fired
Inflammatory comments made on air about transgender individuals led to a public outcry and the firing of two well-known Rochester radio hosts. Kimberly and Beck were co-hosts of “The Breakfast Buzz” on 98.9 The Buzz. Tweets from the Twitter account “98.9 The Buzz” apologized for the “hateful” comments and said that the remarks don’t represent the viewpoint of the station or the company. The Buzz is owned by Entercom.

Rochester wants money to study theater
The City of Rochester is asking the state for $270,000 to study the possibility of building a new performing arts center downtown. Mayor Lovely Warren says that the city has applied for funding through the Finger Lakes Regional Economic Development Council. The city would contribute $30,000 toward the study.
Hochul is the new Duffy
Governor Andrew Cuomo picked former Congress member Kathy Hochul as his running mate. Hochul, who’s from the Buffalo area, is a former Erie County clerk and is vice president of government relations for M&T Bank. She replaces Bob Duffy, who chose not to seek re-election as lieutenant governor.

The Auditorium Theatre is no longer adequate and is costing Rochester top-tier shows, say RBTL officials. FILE PHOTO
The study would look at the economic impact of a new performing arts center, best locations, how the center would fit with the rest of Rochester’s arts scene, what kind of subsidy would be required, and other factors, Warren says. If funded, the feasibility study would take place right away, she says. The city has also formed an exploratory committee to look at the possibility of a new performing arts center, she says. Warren has consistently advocated for an arts center downtown, and Rochester Broadway Theatre League would be the likely candidate to program it. RBTL owns and operates the Auditorium Theatre on East Main Street, but that facility is no longer suitable, say RBTL officials. The subpar
performance space keeps Rochester from getting top-tier shows, they say. RBTL had looked at the Medley Centre project in Irondequoit as a potential location for a new theater. But that project is mired in financial, political, and legal muck; it seems unlikely that it will ever get off the ground. The Finger Lakes council is one of 10 regional councils created by Governor Andrew Cuomo to compete for state funding based on long term regional priorities. Up to $750 million will be available in total this year, according to a state website. Applications for state funding are being accepted until June. Finger Lakes council members will prioritize the applications, and then send the whole package on to the state, which makes the awards.
In Monroe County, the number of dogs testing positive for Lyme disease has been increasing.

Lyme disease on the rise Dogs and ticks have a long history together. And because of that relationship, man’s best friend is a good indicator of how prevalent Lyme disease is in an area. In Monroe County, the number of dogs testing positive for Lyme disease has been increasing. So far this year, 550 Monroe County dogs have tested positive for the disease, according to the Companion Animal Parasite Council, a national veterinary advisory group. By comparison, 479 dogs tested positive in all of 2011. Human cases are rising, too. In 2012, Monroe County physicians reported 40 cases of Lyme disease, up from four cases in 2002, according to the State Department of Health. Lyme disease is a bacterial infection transmitted by deer ticks, which are also known as black-footed ticks. And growing tick populations in Monroe County and other parts of the state are the likely culprit behind the increase in Lyme cases, says Laura Harrington, chair of Cornell University’s Entomology Department. “If you zoom in and look at counties, we’re definitely seeing increases in
places where we haven’t seen it before,” Harrington says. Harrington says that through her research work she’s seen signs that the tick population has grown. Her lab is receiving more samples for identification from doctors’ offices, she says. And she’s been collecting more ticks in the field than she’s been able to collect in the past, she says. A few factors could be driving tick population growth. Monroe County and other areas are experiencing fewer extended periods of extreme cold weather, Harrington says, and that could mean more ticks are surviving through the winter. Other Cornell researchers say places with dense deer populations also tend to have more ticks. Ticks tend to hang out in wooded areas and shaded, grassy places, especially if those places are moist or near water. Public health officials offer a few recommendations to avoid bites, such as wearing pants and long-sleeved shirts, wearing insect repellent, and checking for ticks after outdoor activity. Pet owners should also check their dogs and cats for ticks. Cats and dogs can get Lyme disease, too.

Early signs of Lyme disease can include a bull’s-eye rash and flu-like symptoms. Left untreated, the disease can cause more severe problems like arthritis or neurological issues. More information on Lyme disease is available on the State Department of Health website: http:// www.health.ny.gov/publications/2813/.

Comcast-TW review The State Public Service Commission has started its review of the proposed Comcast-Time Warner Cable merger. The review should take about four months. The PSC will consider how the merger could impact state efforts to expand rural broadband Internet service, how it could impact state efforts to improve schools’ high-speed Internet access, and how it might affect pricing for consumer services. And New Yorkers may also benefit from a recent change in state law, which requires cable companies to prove that any merger is in the public interest. Previously, the state could only reject a cable merger if PSC staff and officials could show that it wasn’t in the interest of the public. Odds are that New York won’t reject the deal. Judging by the criteria they’re examining, however, PSC officials may require certain commitments from the new company. It’d make sense for regulators to require the new company to invest a certain amount in new rural broadband networks, for example. New York is one of several states that must approve the merger. But the Federal Communications Commission’s ongoing review will arguably be the most extensive and the most critical. Its decision, and any conditions that come with it, will shape national cable and Internet policy and competition.

PUBLIC SAFETY | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO
Building support for gun safety Signs opposing the SAFE Act appear along roadsides and front lawns in Monroe and surrounding counties like patches of clover. And chances are you’ve driven behind vehicles with bumper stickers calling for the law’s repeal. But signs supporting Governor Andrew Cuomo’s signature guncontrol legislation are harder to find. That doesn’t mean the controversial law, approved in 2013 and considered among the toughest gun-safety legislation in the nation, is unpopular with the general public. Far from it, says Lea Gunn Barrett, executive director of New Yorkers Against Gun Violence. Barrett will be in Rochester next month. A recent survey conducted by Sienna College Research Institute shows that 63 percent of New Yorkers support the SAFE Act, Barrett says, while 32 percent oppose it. Support is particularly strong among Democrats, women, and minorities. More than 60 percent of African Americans and 55 percent of Latinos support the law, Barrett says. Regionally, however, the numbers change sharply. Only 25 percent of upstate residents support the SAFE Act, the poll says, while a solid 70 percent oppose it. Barrett says that, in response to the poll, she’s visiting upstate cities to educate people about gun safety. She’s in the early stages of expanding her organization’s reach by forming new upstate chapters of the mostly downstate organization. “We’re working on developing a more robust presence in Rochester and Buffalo,” Barrett says. Formed in 1993 by a group of mothers galvanized by the shooting of a Brooklyn teacher, NYAGV was instrumental in the passage of the SAFE Act, Barrett says. The nonprofit has 10,000 members. The idea that the SAFE Act is largely a political response to gun violence in New York City is inaccurate, she says. “There is a problem here, but the problem is statewide and nationwide,” Barrett says. She’ll speak at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 17, at the First Universalist Church, 150 South Clinton Avenue. The event is free and open to the public. New Yorkers, like many people around
the country, are fed up with gun violence, Barrett says. More than 1,010 people died by guns in 2010 — the most recent year that numbers are available from the Centers for Disease Control, she says. The SAFE Act is reasonable and rational legislation, she says. And while there is some vocal opposition, she says, the law is working. 6 CITY
MAY 28 - JUNE 3, 2014
If you’re trying to reduce gun violence, you have to keep them out of the wrong hands.” L EA GU N N BARRET T
“It’s still in the early days; it’s only been 16 months,” Barrett says. “Yet we are seeing some good results from it. Incidents of gun violence have dropped by 4.5 percent since the SAFE Act was enacted.” More than 2,000 people were charged with crimes under the SAFE Act between March 2013 and April 2014; 77.6 percent were charged with criminal possession of a firearm. The SAFE Act elevates the offense from a misdemeanor to a Class E felony. Thirty-two people have been charged with possession of a weapon on school grounds — another Class E felony. But Barrett says that educating people about the SAFE Act is difficult because of intimation and misinformation by the gun lobby. Guns are the only consumer product exempt from regulation by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, she says, which is ironic considering their impact on public safety. This is why the SAFE Act is so vital, Barrett says. “The new law requires background checks of all gun sales, including private sales, which was not the case before the SAFE Act was passed,” she says. “It closes the private sales loophole so that any gun sales between private individuals except family members must be subject to the federal National Instant Criminal Background Check. And that is very significant. If you’re trying to reduce gun
violence, you have to keep them out of the wrong hands.” But the most controversial part of the law deals with assault weapons. Assault weapons owned before the SAFE Act went into effect in January 2013 had to be registered within a year and must be recertified every five years. The SAFE Act initially limited magazine capacity to seven, but the law was amended. Magazines can now have a capacity for 10 rounds, but can only contain seven at any time. “It’s important to limit the magazines so that if you are in a situation where an individual is committing mass murder, they will have to stop to change magazines,” Barrett says. “There’s an opportunity there to stop them from continuing the rampage.” The SAFE Act also requires background checks on ammunition sales and creates a database for sellers of ammunition. This helps law enforcement identify gun traffickers, Barrett says. And the “Webster provision” makes murder of a first responder a Class A-1 felony, with a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole. The name comes from a 2012 ambush in which two firefighters were killed. NYAGV is now focusing its support on new
bills, particularly those ensuring greater protection of children. Gun violence is the second leading cause of death among children and teens in the US, with one child killed or injured every 30 minutes, according to the Centers for Disease Control. NYAGV supports the Child Access Prevention or Safe Storage bill, also called Nicholas’s Law. In 2010, 12-year-old Nicholas Naumkin was shot in the head while playing at a friend’s house. The gun was not kept in a secure place, Barrett says. “We secure medicine cabinets and we put gates at the top of stairs for our children’s protection,” she says. “And yet the

one consumer product specifically designed to kill people is too often the one we don’t feel it’s important to secure.” Nickolas’s Law would require safe storage of all guns. The bill is at the committee level in the State Assembly, and there is no matching Senate version. Despite the opposition’s claims that the SAFE Act infringes on the Second Amendment and that its real purpose is to confiscate guns from law-abiding citizens, the law has withstood two court challenges. The SAFE Act is not about taking people’s guns away, Barrett says. It’s about protecting people, she says, and requiring responsible gun ownership. “The Supreme Court decision held that the Second Amendment says, ‘the individual has the right to possess a firearm irrespective of whether you’re in the military or not.’” Barrett says. “But they also said, ‘Like most rights, this right is not unlimited; it is not absolute.’”

Dining Vegan, served with a smile The Red Fern 283 OXFORD STREET TUESDAY-SUNDAY: 11 A.M. TO 10 P.M. | 563-7633; REDFERNROCHESTER.COM [ REVIEW ] BY LAURA REBECCA KENYON
Garbage plates, nachos, donuts, burgers: they hit our palates’ bliss points, but miss the good-for-us target entirely. Sating those cravings in a way that won’t result in a food hangover is no small feat. Yet this is what The Red Fern, the all-vegan and frequently gluten-free restaurant at 283 Oxford Street, aims to accomplish. “Often people have a preconceived notion of vegan and/or gluten-free, thinking it’s just salads, or it’s bland or dry, or it’s just some spicy brown mush,” says Andrea Parros, owner and operator of The Red Fern. “We set out to change those preconceptions.” It’s difficult to approximate the creamy lushness of cheese or the chew and pull of steak without using milk or beef. Still, The Red Fern is worthy of attention from vegans, carnivores, celiacs, carb-lovers, and eaters in between. The compost plate ($10) is the restaurant’s winking take on the Rochester staple. Like the original, it begins with a bed of sides: macaroni salad and sweet potato salad. The mac salad is faithful in flavor to the standard, swapping out vegan-friendly mayo and fusilli for elbow macaroni. The sweet potato salad is brightly peach-colored and creamy; it’s almost mashed, but there are enough hunks of flesh to give the salad texture. It’s slightly sweet but not much more than white potato salad, which gets its sweetness from the sugar added to commercially prepared mayonnaise. Topping the salads is your choice of protein. I chose the Italian sausage, which tasted and chewed like a typical pork version. The biggest difference was its moisture. With no pork fat, the vegan sausage isn’t juicy, though it is far from dry. On top of it all is The Red Fern’s version of hot sauce, which does an admirable job living up to the flavors of the original. It’s warm and tomatoey with kicks of what I think are cumin and cinnamon. On the whole, the compost plate is a good choice when you’re craving a garbage plate but don’t want to feel like garbage after the meal is over. The handful of breakfast items on the menu are served all day, including the French toast ($8.75). Three hefty slices of salted focaccia bread are cut on the diagonal and stuffed with a chocolate soy-based cream cheese. They’re
doused with a generous amount of local maple syrup and a dusting of powdered sugar. The French toast is just as filling and decadent as it sounds. Bring your sweet tooth, and perhaps someone with whom you can share breakfast. Kale chips ($3), one of the more on-trend ways to prepare the on-trend vegetable, are available, too. When my step-kids were small, they took to calling kale chips “popcorn lettuce” — not only is it light, crisp and salty, but you can’t stop at just one piece. The Red Fern’s kale chips are even better. They’re dusted with nutritional yeast which, to read, doesn’t sound that enthralling. Tasting makes all the difference; the yeast adds nutty, rich and cheese-like flavor notes. Combined with the kale’s light crispness, it’s a snack that is gobbled and gone before you know it. There are plenty of desserts to try, too. Immediately upon entering the restaurant, you are greeted by a bakery case of a rotating selection of cakes, cookies, truffles and donuts — all vegan, many gluten-free. The lemon ginger donut ($4) is redolent of the fruit’s and the root’s zingy flavors. Flecks of lemon zest are baked in, adding vibrancy and a touch of texture. The donut’s consistency is cake-like, but more moist and bouncy than a typical cake donut. It’s glazed, then dotted with chunks of candied ginger, which add up to a treat that is just sweet enough to balance out the tartness and prevent lip puckering. The restaurant’s decor is a bit rustic country, a bit grandma’s summer cottage as interpreted by Anthropologie. It is surprisingly light and airy for a space that is partially below street level. There is an ample use of warm whites, pale and unfinished woods, and grapevine and driftwood accents. Mason jar lights dangle from the ceiling, and tiny flower bouquets adorn tables. Parros said thrift stores and estate sales were scoured to find charmingly mismatched plates and glasses; my bill was presented on a floral saucer held in place by a diminutive pinecone. It would almost be too much, too twee, if the service and the food weren’t down-to-earth and friendly. The restaurant’s name is inspired by Wilson Rawls’ novel “Where the Red Fern Grows” and the Native American legend referenced within. “[The red fern] is symbolic of eternal love and peace,” says Parros, who wants that ethos reflected in her restaurant. “My hope is for people to leave satisfied and happy.” Whether you come for conversation, a glass of on-tap kombucha, or a hefty slice of nondairy cheesecake, you will likely leave gratified.

As Jamal Rossi was presented as the new dean of the Eastman School of Music earlier this month, both he and University of Rochester President Joel Seligman highlighted the school’s history. But they also addressed the task of operating in an increasingly changing music world. “Our challenge in the coming years,” Rossi said at the gathering announcing his appointment, “is to enhance that tradition while being bold and courageous enough to transform ourselves and our school into the most innovative music school for the 21st century.” While classical music isn’t the Eastman School’s only focus, it’s a strong one. And the troubles of symphony orchestras across the country have been well documented in recent years: shrinking audiences, loss of funding, bankruptcy. That’s the world many students at Eastman – where annual undergraduate tuition is $46,150 – will face when they leave. The need for classical music organizations to stay culturally relevant has spawned interesting ideas and conversations about the modern audience. “The concert hall with the twoand-a-half-hour concert is not what’s going to appeal 10 years from now, 15 years from now,” Dawn Lipson, who chairs the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra’s board, told the New York Times recently. The Times’ April 30 story, “Tested Out Upstate: Classical’s Future,” went on to mention the RPO’s “Video Games Live,” scheduled for next November and aimed at appealing to broader audiences.
10 CITY MAY 28 - JUNE 3, 2014
“Music is changing,” Seligman said in an interview last week. “Music teaching is changing. You need someone who can respect the great legacy of the Eastman School, but help the school with a transition into a brave new world.” Seligman said the University of Rochester appointed Rossi dean following a comprehensive international search. His hope, he said, was for a “visionary” who could keep Eastman as a leader in change and prepare its students to succeed in this new landscape. “For decades, if you went to Eastman, a lot of our graduates went on to symphony orchestras,” Seligman said. “Now there will be fewer positions in symphony orchestras in the future. For decades we were a school that prided ourselves on American music, but we also had the classical repertoire. The classical repertoire will endure, but it’s going to be alongside international developments in music and particularly increased focus on new technology and changing music. “When you ask where are the important jobs for graduates in the future, you see burgeoning opportunities in things like film and related scoring,” Seligman said. “Gaming has music. But you also see in many communities a vibrant desire to teach students in high school and college.” Before joining Eastman, Rossi was the dean of the School of Music at the University of South Carolina in Columbia for five years. In 2005, he became senior associate dean at

Eastman, and was executive associate dean from 2007 until September 2013. Following the illness and resignation of former dean Douglas Lowry (who died in October), he was named interim dean of the school. Rossi, a saxophonist and professor of woodwinds, oversaw the $47 million renovation of the Eastman Theatre and construction of the Eastman East Wing. He also founded RocMusic, a partnership of arts and education institutions in Rochester to provide a free afterschool music program for Rochester inner-city students. In a recent interview in his office, Rossi talked about the rapid evolution in the music world and how Eastman will charge straight into that future. Following is an edited version of that conversation. CITY: In your speech last week, you talked about the changing face of the classical music world and about Eastman needing to be innovative. Tell us more about your thoughts on the classical music world and where Eastman fits into that world.
When I think about where we’re heading, it’s important to start with where we are today. Quite frankly, I think the school is absolutely remarkable. It is one of the great schools of music in the world; there’s nothing broken. We have the most remarkable faculty; we have truly remarkable students. We have great
programs. Our undergraduate, our master’s, our doctoral degrees: these are the bedrock upon which most music degrees in the country have been built. Things are really healthy and very, very good. But there is no doubt that the classical music world is changing. It’s always changing; it always has been. I hope it always does. It’s changed in ways that are scary, and we saw in the last five years the number of symphony orchestras, opera companies, or other cultural institutions that have really struggled, and some have even closed their doors. With symphony orchestras shrinking in size, closing their doors, where do you feel the classical world stands today? What are the struggles they face to reach audiences?
It’s interesting, because when we talk about the classical musical world, that’s like talking about “the faculty” or “the students,” as if there is only sort of one body. But just as I look at our faculty and say there’s not just “a faculty” – I have 100 full-time faculty, all whom are very different and unique in their own ways and special – when we think of the traditional classical music areas, the first thing we think about are symphonies and operas. There is no doubt they have faced financial pressures in the past few years, most of them stemming from the economic troubles of 2008.
There was a bit of a perfect storm which impacted corporate giving, individual philanthropy, ticket sales, all of those things together threatened the financial vibrancy of a lot of institutions. But we would be foolish to think that the RPO or any other group has not had financial struggles in the past. It’s part of what goes on.
us in the future? It’s not necessarily saying that we’re going to change our direction, because we’re not; we’re still going to keep our focus on artistry and excellence. So those are the kinds of things we have responded to, and I think by and large it’s been both exciting and healthy to do that.
How did it affect the Eastman School?
Are there specific programs that you want to implement?
Our sources of revenue are primarily our tuition and our endowment. So like every other institution, every higher education institution, when that stock market trouble came, it impacted the value of the endowment, which ultimately means there’s less money to support the day-to-day operations. That put us in a challenging situation of saying, “How are we going to continue doing what we want to do if there’s less money?” At least for a period of years. It does come back and in fact has come back. It forced us to think about: What are additional sources of revenue that we could think about? How do we use technology for that? How can technology help solve this? Are there projects there that can further our mission, increase our visibility and create some revenue for us? If tuition is one of the keys of revenue, are there degree programs that might attract a different kind of student that might not have looked at us in the past but might look at
There are degree programs that we started formulating this year and will launch next year and the year after. We started with what we were calling a Bachelor of Music in Convergent Media. When you read the New York Times and see the groups that are really thriving on stage, they tend to be doing more than just music, or just dance. Our own students today take on these projects outside the curriculum because they’re intrigued by it. And so they do these amazingly creative things that I would have never conceived of. That has morphed into three degrees. One we’ve had on the books for years is a degree in Jazz and Contemporary Media. We have an amazing jazz program, but we haven’t really engaged in contemporary media. Even in the area of composition, our students study jazz composition, but we want to re-enliven film scoring, writing for games, writing for digital media. A second is a degree that we’ve had, but no one really knew about it, called the Bachelor of Musical Arts. This is for a student that has come to Eastman and they realize once they’re here, “You know, I came to be a trumpet player, but there’s so much more that I want to do.” We enabled students to really create their own degree. They still continues on page 12

have to be that trumpet major, but they can either merge it or create something new. The last one we’re going to do as a master’s degree, to make certain they already have a solid musical education, and it is tentatively a Master of Arts in Convergent Artistry. This is an idea where we will partner — and we’ve talked with some organizations, but we have a lot of work to do yet — we want them to be able to do a project with RIT or George Eastman House or with Garth Fagan Dance, or with Strong Museum, or any number of organizations where they can do a true collaborative project. You were talking about a performance with a lot of media going on. Do you see that as a trend in the music world entirely? People aren’t just going to see a performance, they’re going to see video, lights, a grand presentation outside of just the music.
I think part of it is people trying to understand how we enliven music. How can it thrive if some areas are struggling? In that sense I would say yes, it is changing — I’m not sure I’d say it’s a trend. But on the other hand, it really has been a part of music forever. If you think about the great works of Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky, much of their great music was written for ballets, with scenes, with dancing. Opera has always been a collaborative area where lots of things have come together. And even contemporary opera today: Many of the scenes are done digitally and projected. In some ways it’s always been part of the history of music, but I definitely see our students engaging in it more today than five or ten years ago.
Do you feel Eastman is doing enough to promote itself?
I think we work extraordinarily hard to get the word out all the time, and I think there’s always more you can do. The key is making sure you’re hitting the right targets and the right people. There are different audiences. A key audience is future students and their teachers. I think it’s important to realize how it is a student comes to music. My experience has been that a student comes to music because somewhere along the line — 6th, 8th, 10th grade — they’ve just experienced music in such a profound way, they feel they need to do this. At that point, what they’re looking for is the most outstanding teacher of their instrument, or their area. They may not know, but their teachers will have opinions about, “You should look at this school or that school, or this teacher or that teacher.” That’s one target, and we’re constantly getting word out. The other target is with things like big initiatives, when we’re going to do something that we want to engage in the
Have you found, here at Eastman, that people are open to this idea, or have some felt, “This is the way it’s been at Eastman. Why change?”
You should think of Eastman like you would think of any other community. Those communities I think are most vibrant have a wide range of opinions in them. A community where everyone thinks exactly the same [he laughs] — I don’t know: it’s not natural. I don’t care if you’re talking about a church, a softball team, whatever it is, you have different opinions. And I think in an academic institution it’s those people that have different opinions that make each other think. I embrace that. In this area here, most people are saying, “Absolutely, we should be thinking about this.” I would also say there’s some hesitancy about, “We don’t really know what it means — what does it look like?” I haven’t gotten a sense of anybody pushing back and saying no, this is just the wrong thing. My sense is, most communities are more open to embrace that change when it’s additive, meaning yeah, I can still focus on this. 12 CITY MAY 28 - JUNE 3, 2014
national or international community. That’s a very different thing. That’s not something a student is thinking about. But it’s very critical in terms of where we’re heading as a future in music and how we have that conversation. Things like holding a national or international conference in New York City with this very respected group, Chamber Music America: that’s the kind of thing where we want it known in big media markets. We want to get that word out. We’re constantly doing these two things: the big messaging and the “Hey, we have the world’s greatest saxophone instructor here and you as a saxophonist need to know that.” Is the introduction of the Eastman Presents series a way you see Eastman reaching out to a wider audience and saying “Hey, come see what we have going on”?
Absolutely. I think if we want people to care
about music and specifically classical music, they’re only going to care if we’re making a significant difference in their lives. Just giving concerts in the recital hall doesn’t necessarily touch people’s lives. Those who come enjoy it, but why should people come? People come when you make a difference in their communities. We just put together a site about a month ago: we have 26 community outreach programs, and there was no one place you could see all those things, and we’re growing those. The Eastman Presents: we can hopefully bring people in and they can have a fantastic experience. And I hope part of it is also is: “Wow! We should come back here for Jason Alexander, but maybe I’ll come for Peter Serkin with the Eastman Philharmonia.” It’s a way to cross-fertilize people’s interests. Should music schools approach teaching in a different way? Is there a need for innovation in teaching methods as well?
I’ve not thought about it in that way. One of the wonderful things about being in an
academic environment: there is change when hiring new people; new people come in with new ideas and ways of doing things. But it isn’t sort of like something has to change. I’ll give you an example I’ve used before, because I’m still trying to understand what the magic is. I’ve mentioned we have the world’s greatest saxophone professor, Chien-Kwan Lin — and I’m not kidding, we have the world’s greatest saxophone professor. So this fellow has been on the faculty for 10 years. He’s not doing a thing different than grade teachers have done for hundreds of years. But there’s something about it that his students are so incredibly fired up and they are performing at such a high level. There’s nothing new he’s doing, he’s just doing it in a way that’s incredibly inspirational. He’s set standards and expectations and the students are like: “Give me more.” I don’t think it’s new or different, or people need to change their ways. I just think people need to be exceptional at what they do, and that’s who we try to hire.
UPCOMING EVENTS With shrinking symphonies, do you see that there might be a trickle-down effect to music schools? Since there won’t be as many jobs, there won’t be as many students coming into schools?
accredited and another thousand that are not. I’m not sure if all 1,500 or 1,700 can thrive if the number of children studying music continues to go down in public schools.
Potentially, but I don’t think that’s where the issue is. I think the issue, even affecting the symphonies, is that we’re looking at the wrong end of the spectrum. To me the issue is what’s happening in the public schools, or more appropriately, what is not happening in public schools. Since the emphasis on STEM — science, technology, engineering, and math — arts programs in public schools have been marginalized more and more and reduced from the curriculum. I believe that has nothing to do with the fact they’re not valued, or there’s some terrible school board. I think it’s about money and the fact that those other programs are now mandated and most arts programs are not. So even those school districts that have great arts programs are being forced to cut them. For instance, in 1999 there were 1.1 million public school students in California in music programs. In 2004, there were 470,000. And with that was a reduction of about 1,000 music teachers. The reason I started RocMusic is that I believe every child has the right to make music — and making music isn’t the same as going to the symphony one time. It’s holding an instrument, struggling through it, learning how to play communally or sing. If children don’t do that, I don’t know why we think they would come to a concert when they’re 50 years old. When I think about the symphony struggling, for decades… I guarantee you I could find an article from the 1950’s called “The Graying of the Audience.”
How do you see making an Eastman education affordable for students who want to find a position where they can use their degree?
So this isn’t necessarily a new worry?
The graying is not an issue. I think there’s a natural flow. People who experience music but didn’t go into music, they go on to have careers; they raise their families; they’re earning; and at some point the kids leave home. They’re earning more money in their 50’s than they were in their 30’s, and wonder, “What do we do in our spare time? Well, I loved music.” And they start coming back. But if children don’t experience that, they don’t know that in 30 years they’ll come back. When I see struggles of symphonies, opera companies, or other things, it’s more a question about who cares. Does society care about these things? Those changes have created other dynamics in the way students are learning music, and I think some of the changes can be very good. I’m not sure how many music programs there are in the country — I think about 700 are
I think there are two separate questions. The affordable part is a huge issue. The cost of higher education has certainly been a big issue in the public eye the last three to five years. For me it is really a matter providing scholarship money and having a very focused effort on increasing our endowment and our scholarships. I want to make sure any student that’s accepted into Eastman and really wants to be here, that we’re going to find a way to make it affordable for them. That is really all a matter of how much scholarship money we have. For me that is a matter of finding those people who care about the future of music and want to partner with us and help us so that we can raise that money and have that money available for students. That’s the affordable part of it. The “What are they going to do with it when they leave?” is another.

Does Eastman provide services, counseling for career planning?
We have a vibrant career services office. It’s not a job placement service. Going back to the very first performance, music has been a competitive area. When the RPO has a position for a violinist, I don’t know how many applicants they’ll have. But let’s say they invite 50, 70, or 80 to audition. Only one person will get the job. It’s a focus on who is the best prepared, who has the most artistic excellence, who is the person that will thrive in that. Excellence prevails; we can’t move away from that. All we can do is prepare our students to be the most prepared and the most competitive for when they go out for jobs. It’s always been that way. There’s never been a time when there’s a violin opening and only four people showed up. Are there any changes you hope to continue as dean that were implemented by Doug Lowry?
He was a close friend, and there were so many things we worked on together. One of those things we worked on together is really having a presence in New York City. I’m committed to that. That’s where our greatest concentration of our alumni are; it’s one of the cultural capitals of the world; so I very much plan on continuing that and amplifying it greatly.

Rochester skanksters Mrs. Skannotto will keep you guessing with its new offering, “Outlier.” This band has always been much more than ska — what with its sinister punk energy, slick speed, and clever progressions. When the band does cop to a more ska-centric sound the entire band is painstakingly precise and deadon. Though Mrs. Skannotto seems to be outgrowing some of ska’s tight perimeters or moving one step beyond the genre’s limits with “Outlier,” the ska is still there at the heart of the rock and chaos. Songs like the title track — and CD opener — “Outlier,” that has more of a So-Cal power-pop-punk feel. The same with “Phantom Pain” if it weren’t for the awesome U-turn to the irresistible flipped beat thanks to Mrs. Skannotto’s most excellent horn section — which really shines on the intro to “Entropy.” There are subtleties and textures throughout this 11-song adventure that reveal themselves with every new spin. This is an excellent and extremely diverse record — there’s even a cool take on Peter Gabriel’s “Games without Frontiers,” a song I have hated for years up until now. Over all “Outlier” has something for everyone who likes it raucous, rowdy and fun. I dare you to try and sit still while listening to this one. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

16 CITY MAY 28 - JUNE 3, 2014
[ FEATURE ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
Just ask Austin-based country singing salvation Dale Watson and he’ll tell you. “Ameripolitan,” he says. “It’s a new genre. It’s what country used to be. And that’s what you’ll hear at my show. It’s honky-tonk, western swing, rockabilly, and outlaw.” That’s what it is, but Watson is quick to tell you what it isn’t as well. It may sound classic, but it ain’t retro, Jack. Don’t confuse the two. “It may be done in an older pattern,” he says. “But it’s new songs about new things. For instance, it’s trucking songs done in a way that best translates to the trucking music world. It’s not retro, it’s new music with something new to say. I mean we talk about GPS and ambient
sensors, you know, things that are new to truck driving.” Dale Watson and his Lone Stars burst on the scene with the release of “Cheatin’ Heart Attack” in 1995. And though the man doesn’t cotton to the word “retro” — crooning with a deep, honey-tone baritone under a towering pompadour, and twangin’ guitar work — Watson dished out the kind of country music that fans used to get in abundance. Now, with over 20 records to his credit and a little more snow on the roof, Watson still reigns as one of the best county singers … ever. High praise? Just give him a spin and you’ll hear pure American music done right. Growing up outside Pasadena, Texas, country music was played at home and just about everywhere according to Watson. It got in his blood. “Where I grew up, it was just part of the atmosphere,” he says. “You go in any store or walk in anywhere … it wasn’t on a sound system but just a little radio on the counter. It was good stuff back then, you know, George Jones, and Merle Haggard, Johnny

Cash. They were still being played on the radio. It was good listenin’.” Watson and his band are cut from the same cloth and wouldn’t sound the least bit out of place coming out of one of those old transistor radios back then. “We play what used to be country music,” Watson says. “It’s hard to get that anywhere else these days.” What isn’t hard is picking up on Watson’s distain for the Nashville starmaker machine; a vacuous, played-out plastic entity that has no use — or respect — for its roots or its authentic purveyors. Still, Watson is cool with its exclusionary practices and his outsider status. “Yeah,” he says. “I’m OK with it. Like you said, I’m an outsider, so I don’t get invites to a lot of these things that I don’t really care about anyway. CMA, ACM they’re all about the record companies and the money that doesn’t really make a difference.” Then again there are a few artists floating in the ether that he digs. “Amber Digby, she’s one of the best girl singers out there right now,” he says. “Rhonda Vincent, I think has a great voice. Of course, I like Dwight [Yoakam] — I don’t know if you’d consider him contemporary, but I think he is. But as far as the rest of the guys? Not in the mainstream. I don’t particularly like any of them.” For Watson, it all starts with a good song, a real song. “It’s just gotta be real,” he says. “Songs made up by three guys in a room in Nashville, just don’t cut it for me. I like hearing songs that are a little bit more personal.” Seeing Dale Watson and his Lone Stars live is a rare treat. There’s no Nashvegas flash, no glitz, no acheybreaky bullshit, just a straight up shot of Ameripolitan music. Folks leave rejuvenated, reinvigorated, their faith restored. I know, it’s happened to me. “Hopefully you’ll leave knowing you heard something you can’t hear anywhere else,” Watson says. “Leave with a feeling of what I think it was that made country music so appealing in the first place. Before it got polluted.”

A major force on the Brooklyn jazz scene, Garcia has played with Wynton Marsalis, Woody Allen, Anat Cohen, and many others. Preminger has lent his talents to Dave Holland, Fred Hersch, and Dave Douglas. The excellent group is rounded out by Dan Tepfer on piano and bassist Joe Martin.

HIP-HOP | AFROMAN
“Because I Got High” might be the greatest of all stoner anthems. Released in 2000 by California-born rapper-guitarist Afroman, it is easy to sing along to and funnier than, say, Black Sabbath’s “Sweet Leaf.” “Because I Got High” was actually modeled after one-hit-wonder “Don’t Worry Be Happy” and ironically the moral of Afroman’s story is that nothing good happens when he gets high. Afroman’s mega-hit is just the tip of an often humorous discography which draws from genres including gospel (“Hush”), blues (“You Ain’t My Friend”), and country (“Thank God I’m a Homeboy”). Afroman performs Monday, June 2, at California Brew Haus, 402 Ridge Road West. 7 p.m. $15. Ticketfly. com/venue/11621-the-california-brew-haus — BY ROMAN DIVEZUR [ JAZZ ]

REVIEW SECTION Publishes: June 25 Ad space reservations: June 20
On Hit the Lights’ 2012 album, “Invicta,” the Ohio pop punk band surged back after what seemed a frustrating mistake signing with a major label. The band ultimately worked with Razor & Tie Records for “Invicta,” and Hit the Lights came out with its most mature release to date. The album pushes the pop anthem to new heights with swelling, epic instrumentation and the catchy vocal hooks that are needed to make the live show really stick out. The band is working on new material for the fall.

Out of Pocket Productions’ presentation of “Well” plays at MuCCC Thursday, May 29, through Saturday, May 31. PHOTO BY ANNETTE DRAGON
Six characters in search of a cure “Well” THURSDAY, MAY 29, THROUGH SATURDAY, MAY 31 MUCCC THEATER, 142 ATLANTIC AVENUE 7:30 P.M. | $10-$20 | OUTOFPOCKETPRODUCTIONS.ORG; MUCCC.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY DAVID RAYMOND
I don’t know if it is postmodern, or meta-theatrical — or neither or both — but Lisa Kron’s “Well” is a clever, humane, and thought-provoking play. At the beginning of the show, Kron, who is the play’s writer as well as its main character, tells the audience they are in for a “theatrical exploration” of sickness and wellness, and I suppose that’s as good a description as any. “Well” is very theatrical, and it explores some interesting questions about what we perceive to be illness and health, and how we interact with the “characters” in our own life stories. Lisa Kron (Stephanie Roosa), prominent writer and performer, is presenting her latest theater piece, in which she poses the question, “Why do some people get sick and stay sick, while others get sick and stay well?” In the first category, Lisa puts her mother Ann (Vicki Casarett), who has suffered from debilitating allergies all her life, but managed to turn their 20 CITY MAY 28 - JUNE 3, 2014
Lansing suburban neighborhood into a fully integrated one in the 1960’s. In the second category Lisa definitely puts herself. Not only did she undergo successful treatment at an allergy clinic as a young woman, Lisa thinks that in leaving home to pursue an artistic career and her own interests, she has “cured” herself of her family and its ills. Of course, she’s wrong — and the play gets really interesting, as Ann (who is none too pleased with being a character in a play) interrupts the action to point out inconsistencies in Lisa’s retelling. The daughter keeps trying to take control of her play, but Ann eventually prevails; in fact the other actors in “Well” decide they prefer Ann’s story to Lisa’s self-justification, and leave in protest. Ann finally has her say at the end, when Lisa reads a moving little speech her mother gave to the neighborhood association. Lisa realizes that some questions about the lives of her family members will always remain unanswered. “Well” is difficult to describe, but
easy to follow in Out of Pocket’s production. This cerebral “we’re all in a play” approach to theater conventions, characters, and storytelling is at least as old as Pirandello’s “Six Characters in Search of an Author,” but Kron continues on page 27
ART | “POETIC PASSAGES”
Most makers don’t really retire. Nearly 14 years after closing his chapter as professor of painting, printmaking, sculpture, and figure drawing at Rochester Institute of Technology Lawrence “Judd” Williams is still creating. Williams’ playful, non-representational work is collected locally and nationally, and he was selected as one of six artists to participate in the Memorial Art Gallery’s 2010 4th annual Biennial Exhibition. Recently, a solo show of his drawings and sculpture was displayed at Axom Gallery in Rochester. In his work with found objects for his show at Axom, the artist said that his pieces were “inspired by the materials themselves, it’s like the object is a piece of language.” The dialogue with material continues Saturday, May 31, when Ock Hee’s Gallery (2 Lehigh Street in Honeoye Falls) will present Williams’ “Poetic Passages: Drawings & Collages.” A reception with the artist will take place that day from 1 to 5 p.m. The show will remain on view through July 12. Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and admission is free. For more information, call 624-4730 or visit Ockheesgallery.com. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

WORKSHOP | CONVERSATIONS ON RACE
Anyone who thinks that the issues of racial equity in our society were solved during the Civil Rights Era needs to take a good look around. Or even better: talk with some people outside of your usual chatter circle. Bearing witness to the experience of others — not just what talking heads have to say about those others — is essential. Programs meant to raise awareness about the impact of race in our everyday lives are held throughout the year in Rochester. Check out the calendar at Faceraceroc.org, and join your neighbors and other members of the community in open dialogues about race and its impact on all of us. Two opportunities to join the conversation will take place this week. On Thursday, May 29, Chili Public Library (3333 Chili Avenue) will host “Conversations on Race: A Process of Discovery.” The free event takes place 6 to 8 p.m. For more information, call 889-2200, or visit www.chililibrary.org. On Monday, June 2, Barnes & Noble (3349 Monroe Avenue in Pittsford) will host a Moving Beyond Racism Book Discussion, featuring “The Unquiet Grave” by Steve Hendricks. The free event takes place 7 to 8:30 p.m., and is open to all, whether or not you have read the book.

RECREATION | ROCHESTER MAP ADVENTURE
In an era of GPS and smartphone map services, getting your bearings the old fashioned way is unusual. Still, exploring your own city can lead to new discoveries or renewed interest in local gems that we tend to take for granted. On Saturday, May 31, Rochester Orienteering Club will host its 3rd annual urban orienteering event, the Rochester Map Adventure. This year, the event starts at Martin Luther King Jr. Park, 353 Court Street, at 11 a.m. (with registration opening at 10 a.m.), and includes locations throughout downtown, Corn Hill, the University of Rochester, Mount Hope, Main Street, and Cobb’s Hill. People may participate individually or in teams, on foot or by bike. Maps will be distributed 15 minutes prior to the start, and there will be 3- and 5-hour time categories. The maps have circles on them marking areas of historic interest; at the center of each circle is a question to be answered (easily, based on observation of the area). The object is to get to as many circles as possible and answer as many questions correctly within the shortest amount of time. Food and drink will be provided at the end of each time block. A pre-registration entry fee of $15 per adult ($10 for Rochester Orienteering Club members) and $5 for one or more children ages 18 and under (that’s as many children as a team has with them, not $5 per child). Participants are requested to register online by May 28, 10 p.m. An additional $5 fee is charged for registration on site, if space permits.

Portrait of a lady “Belle”
(PG), DIRECTED BY AMMA ASANTE NOW PLAYING AT THE LITTLE [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA
In addition to the countless films made from original scripts, the medium’s long history demonstrates a close relationship with other arts. Hundreds of movies grow out of plays, short stories, novels, poems, even popular songs, but the origin of “Belle” may be unique — it began with a painting. The painting, an 18th-century portrait of two beautiful, elegantly dressed young women, one white, one black, led the
screenwriter, Misan Sagay, to investigate the history of the painting and of the two women, orphaned cousins in the care of the Lord Chief Justice of England. The story begins with Captain Sir John Lindsay (Matthew Goode) placing his illegitimate biracial daughter Belle (Lauren Julien-Box) in the household of his uncle the Chief Justice (Tom Wilkinson), the Earl of Mansfield. Lord Mansfield and his wife (Emily Watson) raise the young woman along with her cousin Elizabeth (Sarah Gadon) as part of the family. The fact of her mixed ancestry and illegitimacy naturally conditions much of her life in the great house and in the society of lords, ladies, knights, earls, viscounts, and all the other tiresome titles of the awful aristocracy that ruled England. Most of the film deals with the young womanhood of Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu MbathaRaw) and her unusual position in the world of privilege and rank. Snooty visitors express shock at her acceptance in the family and the

obvious affection of her cousin and great uncle. Beautiful and exotic, she attracts the attention of some eligible young men; as the heiress to a handsome fortune, she also appeals to that classic English type, the younger sons of great families who will not inherit wealth or property. Aside from Dido’s personal story, the question of race enters the movie through her great uncle’s position as Lord Chief Justice. He must decide the legality of an insurance claim for a shipload of slaves cruelly drowned by the captain of the slave ship Zong. The case and his decision, according to the script, initiate the process of reform and abolition that ultimately leads to the outlawing of slavery in Great Britain. Despite the unavoidable presence of the racial issue, “Belle” addresses problems of class as much as race. The painful punctiliousness of behaviors and attitudes suffocates much of the characters’ simple humanity. The formal exactness of the dialogue, the scrupulous attention to particular acts, words, and gestures against the background of an oppressive propriety, turns the movie into a version of the novel of manners, rather like Jane Austen without the wit. Despite her heritage and race, Dido behaves with the same aristocratic decorum as everybody else, speaking in the same careful sentences, invoking the same social rules, enjoying the same privileges as her family and acquaintances. Her love for an idealistic young lawyer, John Davinier

Triple feature [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
“For No Good Reason” (R), DIRECTED BY CHARLIE PAUL OPENS FRIDAY AT THE LITTLE AND PITTSFORD CINEMA
(Sam Reid) shows her brave willingness to defy those rules and follow her heart. Stuck somewhere between a chick flick and a costume drama, with even a touch of the English country house mystery, the picture relies heavily on the decorative aspects of its time. The men wear wigs, stockings, and knee breeches, the women dress in colorful gowns that push their breasts up as if they were selling fruit, and the establishing shots of the great house should please any Anglophile viewer of public television (you “Downton Abbey” fans out there know what I mean). The highly inhibited social life, with its excessively polite conversation, its dreadful snobbery, and entertainment consisting of after dinner piano recitals by the young ladies makes the 18th century seem remarkably boring. Possibly in keeping with its time and place, “Belle” substitutes words for action in most of its important scenes, resulting in a sometimes tediously talky work. Its visual beauty, its stunning exteriors, and the quality of its cast compensate for some of its length and prolixity. The lovely Gugu Mbatha-Raw looks very like the now famous portrait and handles her part with precision and even some passion. As usual in English movies, the supporting cast, which includes Emily Watson and Miranda Richardson, performs with great competence and conviction, and the redoubtable Tom Wilkinson expresses a variety of emotions underneath that awful wig, and pretty much dominates every one of his scenes.
In “For No Good Reason,” director Charlie Paul delves into the work of English illustrator Ralph Steadman, whose splotchy, grotesquely caricatured art is probably familiar to you even if you don’t immediately recognize his name. He’s most well-known for his collaborations with Gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson, so it follows that the film focuses mostly on their partnership, but that decision winds up being a bit disappointing when it becomes clear that Steadman’s most interesting work was done solo. Steadman is an engaging subject, but Paul’s direction constantly calls attention to itself, distracting from the artist’s work with montages, split screens, still photography, and shifting film formats. That’s not even counting the animation segments, an overbearing pop soundtrack, and narration from Johnny Depp. The film’s best moments come when the camera rests long enough to let us observe Steadman’s process, which is fascinatingly freeform — he admits the end results are as unexpected to him as they are to his audience. It’s the sort of intriguing statement that the film is too hyperactive to properly explore.

“A Million Ways To Die In the West” (R), DIRECTED BY SETH MACFARLANE OPENS FRIDAY
“Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane has got to be one of the most frustrating entertainers working in Hollywood today. His projects tend to rely on the shock value of politically incorrect humor while pandering to the lowest common denominator with endless barrages of dick and fart jokes. But at the same time, he manages to slip in enough truly clever material to make it maddeningly obvious that he’s a lot smarter than he lets on. It’s a modus operandi that smacks of laziness, and his new western-comedy “A Million Ways to Die in the West” does little to break that trend. MacFarlane writes, directs and stars as Albert, a sweet-natured but spineless sheep farmer who discovers untapped wells of self-confidence and courage through his relationship with new-girl-in-town, Anna (Charlize Theron). Unbeknownst to Albert, Anna is on the run from her infamous outlaw husband, Clinch (Liam Neeson). With supporting roles for Amanda Seyfried as Albert’s ex, Neil Patrick Harris as the moustachery proprietor she shacks up with, plus Sarah Silverman and Giovanni Ribisi as Albert’s best friends, this is too talented a cast for there not to be a few laughs, and there’s some good silly fun to be had (particularly during a moustachecentric musical number). However, the tone veers so wildly from scene to scene that the film as a whole winds up being completely forgettable. MacFarlane isn’t an unappealing lead, and he has a nice, effortless chemistry with Theron — their scenes together effectively offer a few tantalizing hints at what a smarter, more ambitious script might have given us.
“Palo Alto” (R), DIRECTED BY GIA COPPOLA OPENS FRIDAY AT THE LITTLE
“Palo Alto” marks the debut of the third generation of filmmakers from the Coppola family, with the first feature from writer-director Gia Coppola. Her film takes inspiration from a collection of short stories by James Franco, but don’t let that scare you off, as Coppola delivers a remarkably assured depiction of aimless youth stumbling through life as they make an attempt to solidify what kind of person they’ll ultimately become. The film centers on April (Emma Roberts), a good girl with enough of a rebellious streak that her path isn’t immediately clear. The only one amongst her group of friends who’s still a virgin, she sets her sights on Teddy, played by Jack Kilmer (son of Val Kilmer, who appears in the film as April’s step-father), a generally sweet kid whose friendship with semideranged Fred (Nat Wolff) has a tendency to land him in trouble. When Teddy gets put on probation after a fender-bender following a party, he slides just enough out of the picture for April’s predatory soccer coach (played by Franco himself) to take advantage of the situation. Coppola’s film has a dreamy tone that’s more than a little reminiscent of her aunt Sophia, and the episodic plotting betrays its short-story roots, but she maintains a clear-eyed empathy with the protagonists that feels heartbreakingly real. As the teens let their insecurities guide them into making generally terrible decisions, it’s hard not to feel for them. Coppola’s compassion for her characters allows them to be alternately endearing and infuriating, and I can’t think of a better description of adolescence.

Theater continues from page 20
keeps the action funny and engaging — and eventually, quite serious. Director Cece McFarland keeps the constantly changing action clear, well-timed, and perfectly pitched. All of these theatrical head games are firmly anchored by the two female leads. As Ann Kron, Vicki Casarett gives a performance full of droll details, but presents a well-judged character arc, from supposed ditziness at the beginning to true moral and emotional stature at the end. I don’t think she raises her voice once in the play, but her quiet authority sets the tone of the show. Stephanie Roosa delivers many of Lisa’s lines with the right dryly, witty touch, and she is not afraid to play her less sympathetic moments honesty. The two women complement each other well; through some acting alchemy, they really seem like a mother and daughter, even though they look and act nothing alike. Casarett and Roosa are supported by an outstanding ensemble. These four performers play adults and children encountered by Kron in her neighborhood while growing up, a doctor and fellow patients in the allergy clinic, and themselves — the increasingly dissatisfied cast members of “Well.” Each of the four in the ensemble has their standout moments. Morey Fazzi plays an amusingly unctuous doctor, and Mickey Market is hilarious and a bit harrowing as Lisa’s roommate at the clinic, who seems to be allergic to life itself. Jacqueline Moe plays every third-grade girl’s loudmouthed classmate from hell, and turns around to play a clinic patient who describes herself as “sick of being sick.” Corwin Alexander creates a rounded character in just a few lines as the Krons’ drunken neighbor — and also plays his son. And I suppose it’s not amiss to say that all four of them play themselves very, well ... well.

NOTICE YOU ARE IN DANGER OF LOSING YOUR HOME If you do not respond to this summons and complaint by serving a copy of the answer on the attorney for the mortgage company who filed this foreclosure proceeding against you and filing the answer with the court, a default judgment may be entered and you can lose your home. Speak to an attorney or go to the court where your case is pending for further information on how to answer the summons and protect your property. Sending a payment to your mortgage company will not stop this foreclosure action. YOU MUST
RESPND BY SERVING A COPY OF THE ANSWER ON THE ATTORNEY FOR THE PLAINTIFF (MORTGAGE COMPANY) AND FILING THE ANSWER WITH THE COURT. The following notice is intended only for those defendants who are owners of the premises sought to be foreclosed or who are liable upon the debt for which the mortgage stands as security.

The name of the creditor to whom the debt is owed: JPMORGAN CHASE BANK, NATIONAL ASSOCIATION.

Upon your written request within said thirty day period, the herein debt collector will provide you with the name and address of the original creditor if different from the current creditor Note: Your time to respond to the summons and complaint differs from your time to dispute the validity of the debt or to request the name and address of the

TO THE DEFENDANTS: DONNA B HARRINGTON and KEVIN J HARRINGTON : If you have obtained an order of discharge from the Bankruptcy court, which includes this debt, and you have not reaffirmed your liability for this debt, this law firm is not alleging that you have any personal liability for this debt and does not seek a money judgment against you. Even if a discharge has been obtained, this lawsuit to foreclose the mortgage will continue and we will seek a judgment authorizing the sale of the mortgaged premises.

Attorneys for Plaintiff Main Office 51 E Bethpage Road Plainview, NY 11803 516-741-2585 Help For Homeowners In Foreclosure New York State Law requires that we send you this notice about the foreclosure process. Please read it carefully. Mortgage foreclosure is a complex process. Some people may approach you about “saving” your home. You should be extremely careful about any such promises. The State encourages you to become informed about your options in foreclosure. There are government agencies, legal aid entities and other non-profit organizations that you may contact for information about foreclosure while you are working with your lender during this process. To locate an entity near you, you may call the toll-free helpline maintained by the New York State Banking Department at 1-877-BANKNYS (1877-226-5697) or visit the Department’s website at www.banking.state. ny.us. The State does not guarantee the advice of these agencies.
