The gas industry objects to the recent Duke University study in Pennsylvania and New York about methane in water wells, because there have been no “base line” surveys of wells in the hydrofracking vicinity done before drilling the wells. The baseline survey is the responsibility of the gas industry. Not having done it, we must then rely on the testimony of the water-well users who have been damaged by the hydrofracking. If the drillers were confident of the outcome, I would think that their counsel would have advised them to do a pre-drilling water-well survey to defend against false claims, or as a basis for compensating damaged neighbors. It is high cheek to assert that the neighbors would be obligated to do a survey before drilling, at their own cost. RON JOHNSON, PITTSFORD
Working for rights
Thank you for your insightful editorial on justice in the Presbyterian Church (USA) (“Justice Being Done,” May 18). I too am a grateful Presbyterian. Various organizations and dedicated individuals helped bring this about: Covenant Network, More Light Presbyterians, That All May Freely Serve, and others. In particular, TAMFS was founded locally by the Downtown United Presbyterian Church and its first Minister Director, the Rev. Janie Spahr. Its current Minister Director, Lisa Larges, is hoping to finally be ordained after being rejected by the various Presbyterian courts for 25 years. Janie Spahr will visit Rochester and preach at Downtown Presbyterian on June 12. JIM REES, PITTSFORD

recent decision to ordain gay and lesbian ministers and lay leaders (Urban Journal, “Justice Being Done,” May 18). But Towler has not mentioned some lingering prejudices still harbored within her own church. In 2000, the Presbyterians launched a campaign to divest themselves from five US companies (Caterpillar, Motorola, ITT, United Technologies, and CitiGroup). They claim that these companies, which operate in Israel, are complicit in that country’s mistreatment and suppression of the Arabs. The United Church of Christ has taken similar action, and the Episcopalians are considering the same course. Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East, is thankful that John Paul II was the first Pope in two millennia to set foot in a synagogue and to visit Israel. The Israelis are also very grateful that American Evangelical Christians continue to provide unwavering support for their country and to visit Biblical sites in the Holy Land. It seems that Towler may still have another item to address on her church’s “Justice being done” list. GERALD W. GRUMET, BRIGHTON

On the Monroe County and state Bar Associations’ backing of marriage equality: Maybe this is
why less than 1/2 of the licensed attorneys in Monroe County are members of the county Bar Association, and why far less than 1/2 of the licensed attorneys in NYS are members of the NYS Bar Association. The Bar Associations took a serious turn to the Left in the 1990s and have essentially become liberal advocacy organizations. They no longer represent the views of the lawyers in the county or the state. B SARBANE

On our article on Mayor Tom Richards’ proposed city budget:
“It also eliminates 140 positions, a figure that could include as many as 80 layoffs. Of the position cuts, 51 will come from the police department, 28 will come from the fire department, 23 will come from the Department of Environmental Services. Other positions are being cut from business development, libraries, and housing and code enforcement.” So how many positions are being cut from the mayor’s office? How many department heads or similar senior administrators are being eliminated or their salaries cut? What about the support staff for the City Council? In addition, given the millions of scarce city tax dollars that have been used to sweeten the Paetec deal, can Mayor Richards provide the citizenry with revenue projections for the Midtown project? In other words, when will that investment start showing a profit and how much will that profit be? CITIZEN CANDY KANE

Reproductive justice: back to the bad old days?
448 WEST BLOOMFIELD RD. Pittsford, NY 14534 586-3850 OrientalGardenSupply.com
The year was 1969 — before New York State legalized abortion, before Roe v. Wade, before the war on Planned Parenthood. I was minister at the First Unitarian Church of Ithaca when I joined the Clergy Consultation Service, a counseling service for women with unwanted pregnancies. We developed a discipline to provide effective consultation while protecting ourselves legally should that become necessary. We engaged in “all options counseling.” If the woman wanted an abortion, we sought to determine if she qualified for a legal therapeutic abortion in New York; that was possible only if two doctors determined that the life of the woman was threatened. We maintained a list of safe and legal abortion services outside New York. Our caseload grew quickly. I counseled with 50 women in our 15 months of operation, 17 in one unusually hectic week. Women from all over the state and beyond called us. They were a microcosm of the nation’s social problems: from a young college coed fearful of her sexually repressive parents, to a couple both near 40 who already had five children and could not afford more, to a Native American woman who had failed to obtain a legal abortion and left my office threatening suicide when I could not help. I learned that an unwanted pregnancy was only a symptom of much larger problems. From the outset we combined counseling with advocacy of legal abortion. Republican Assemblywoman Constance Cook introduced legislation to repeal the restrictive abortion law. The debate on the Assembly floor was bitter, and the vote was close. The legislation passed when Auburn’s George Michaels changed his mind, risked his career, and cast the deciding vote, legalizing abortions in New York as of July 1, 1970. In the next election he was swept from office. With a sense of relief, we disbanded in June 1970. We assumed that the new law would make our consultation service unnecessary. Our relief turned to hope when the Supreme Court handed down its 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade. We thought naively that our work was done. The 2010 election has done collateral damage to the reproductive justice movement: 49 more anti-choice votes in
Thanks to the 2010 election, there are 49 more anti-choice votes in the House and a slim pro-choice margin in the Senate. the House, a slim margin of pro-choice votes in the Senate. Twelve states switched from pro-choice to anti-choice governors. New York still has in its criminal code that 1970 law. The Women’s Reproductive Rights Act has been proposed to update that law and place it in the health code where it properly belongs. It would essentially embed in law the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. The threat to reproductive freedom brought on by the 2010 election makes its passage imperative. I wish those who oppose reproductive freedom could have been with me in 1969 and 1970. I wish they could have looked those troubled women in the eye and told them that they have no right to control their own body; I wish they had been there to tell them that because some people have religious views opposing abortion, they may not have one; I wish they could have been there to help these women cope with the overwhelming problems they faced with a pregnancy carried to term. But they weren’t, and they aren’t. They are out there picketing Planned Parenthood, which helps prevent unwanted pregnancies; from pulpits, they are proclaiming that their moral values should become a law controlling the behavior of others. They are protesting embryonic stem cell research with its lifegiving promise. They seek a return to a time when troubled women had to seek out sympathetic clergy in the desparate hope that they might maintain their reproductive rights. Having been at the vortex of the battle over abortion in 1970, I pray we won’t return to those bad old days.

This is no typical election year for Brighton Democrats. The reason: there will be five open seats for town and county offices. Long-time Supervisor Sandra Frankel isn’t seeking re-election and is instead running for Monroe County executive. Town Board member Ray Tierney — who’s advocated regionalism and has been a critic of the county industrial development agency — is stepping down, as is fellow board member Sheila Gaddis. Travis Heider, who represents part of Brighton in the County Legislature, isn’t seeking re-election, either. Town Clerk Susan Kramarsky didn’t seek nomination for the job, says Brighton Democratic Leader Jim Vogel. That leaves five elected positions wide open. And races without an incumbent are riskier for the party that previously controlled the seats. Brighton is heavily Democratic, however, so Democrats has a low risk of losing the seats. To replace those stepping down, the Brighton Democratic committee has nominated:
• Town attorney William Moehle for supervisor • Parks and recreation advisory board member Christopher Werner for Town Board • Town Zoning Board of Appeals member Jason DiPonzio for Town Board • Deputy clerk and deputy receiver of taxes Dan Aman for town clerk • Legislative staffer Justin Wilcox for the County Legislature’s 14th District seat. Brighton Republicans have nominated Brian Callahan for supervisor and David Rizzo for Town Board. Taxes and town operations are stock issues in local races, but Brighton candidates are likely to talk development and land use, too. Two recent development proposals — an already approved residential development and a pending commercial project — have faced considerable public criticism. The projects would eliminate open space and important animal habitat, and could change neighborhood character, some residents say.

Reaction mixed to city school district cuts
Watkins weighs in
Barely two weeks in office as the city school district’s interim superintendent, Bolgen Vargas made heads turn with his decision to fire three top administrators last week. John Scanlan, deputy superintendent of administration; James Fenton, chief of strategy and planning; and Tom Petronio, chief of communications were dismissed without explanation. “My objective as interim superintendent is to create an administration that is both more effective and more efficient,” said a written statement provided by Vargas. The statement did not mention the employees by name, and Vargas would not comment further. Reactions to the firings have been mixed. To critics who see the district’s central office as a bloated behemoth employing a lot of high-salaried paper-pushers, the cuts to administration are viewed as a necessity. Others think the cuts are part of a strategy to help get negotiations restarted with the Rochester Teachers Association. As concerns grew over how to close the district’s $76-million budget gap, some teachers and parents demanded to see more cuts from the administration and, in particular, the Superintendent’s Employee Group — a group of employees generally making six-figure salaries. The cuts were one of several prerequisites issued by the teachers union before concessions could even be discussed.

She cites as examples the delay in the new East Avenue Wegmans store, and the decades it took to bring the Brooks Landing project to fruition. | Bureaucracy and red tape also make it difficult, she says, for people to start businesses. And while the city grants incentives to big businesses like Paetec, she says, there never seems to be enough money for things like getting small businesses off the ground or to fixup homes “that are falling apart around us.” | Watkins opposes mayoral control of the city school district, but said that given the amount the city gives the school district every year — about $119 million — City Council needs a “tried and true educator” among its ranks.
School board President Malik Evans has said that one of Vargas’s directives is to improve communications between the district Malik Evans. and its many Photo BY MIKE HANLON stakeholders, which may at least partially account for Petronio’s dismissal. But the district’s communications problems were not exactly about how the message was delivered. Many of former Superintendent Jean-Claude Brizard’s critics simply disagreed with the message, and there is no indication that they have changed their opinions. Some board members are baffled by the cuts. “A strategic planner can be couched as an unnecessary expense at this time, I suppose,” says board member Willa Powell, referring to James Fenton’s position. But Fenton’s role involved quality assurance and control, which saves the district money in the long term, she says.

INTERVIEW | By TIM LOUIS MACALUSO AND CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN
Bolgen Vargas: a dramatic beginning Bolgen Vargas repeatedly used the word “trust” in an interview last week. The interim superintendent of city schools is convinced that one of the district’s biggest problems is a severe lack of it. There is a lack of trust between the district and teachers, parents, employees, community leaders, and even the media, he said. You could almost hear a collective sigh of relief when the city school board picked Vargas to lead the district on an interim basis after former Superintendent Jean-Claude Brizard left for Chicago. Vargas was on the Rochester school board from 1996 to 2003, serving as president for part of that time. And he is known outside of Rochester’s education community. Vargas describes his leadership style as someone who listens and collaborates, and he said he’s approaching all four of the district’s bargaining units in an all-out effort to mend fences. The district’s communications failures are at least partly to blame for the scarcity of trust, he said, and his success depends on how well he can rebuild that trust. And he has taken strong action. Just two weeks into his new job, Vargas fired three of the district’s top administrators: Chief of Communications Tom Petronio, Deputy Superintendent John Scanlan, and Chief of Strategy and Planning Jim Fenton. Some people are questioning the timing and rationale behind those cuts, and they raise a more important question: Does a counselor from the Greece school district have the administrative chops to manage a district with 32,000 students and a budget of nearly $700 million? It’s a question that Vargas dislikes being asked, and he almost flicks it away. His doctorate was in education leadership and organization, he said, and his oneon-one experience with students is an asset, not a weakness. Still, there is concern about his close relationship to RTA President Adam Urbanski. Will Vargas pull back from some of the reforms important to his predecessor, such as greater teacher accountability, merit pay, and enforcing higher standards for receiving tenure? Or will he cave to pressure from the teachers union? Vargas said he has no plans to dramatically change the district’s current course, intimating that he is more of a place-holder than a person who is charged with returning the district to its pre-Brizard days. And he seems to agree with many of Brizard’s ideas. Though he never criticized Brizard directly, Vargas said implementing great ideas is much more difficult than envisioning them. City

And the district has long had problems with implementation, he said, even when it comes to fundamentals like recording attendance. Vargas is likeable, but his popularity will be tested when he has to make decisions that are less populist than cuts to top brass; cutting teachers will be a different situation. And he may soon discover that some of the district’s communications problems have more to do with the unpopularity of the message, and not how the message is delivered. And some board members, he may also learn, have their own approach to communications with the public — one that has not always been supportive of the superintendent. In a recent interview, Bolgen Vargas talked about his respect for teachers, poverty’s influence on education, and the importance of arts, music, and physical education programs. The following is an edited version of that discussion. CITY: What is your charge as the interim superintendent? Vargas: As an interim you do a lot of assessment
and you make sure you don’t lose any ground when it comes to the education of our kids. You make the most out of each day with instruction in our schools. One thing you don’t do is bring large new initiatives. I’m putting my energy into making sure that whatever we do we are guided by three principles: one is the needs of our students, and then there are the needs of families in our community, and definitely you have to pay attention to the needs of the organization: the needs of our staff, our teachers, and so on. Those are the fundamental things that you keep in mind. And then — in my view at this time — we need to concentrate very specifically on no more than three to five to seven objectives. In other words, you need to stay focused?
Yes. You have to make sure that the kids who are on track to graduate, that they do graduate from high school, for example. Make sure that the summer school program goes into effect to serve the needs of our kids. Make sure the opening of the school year is effective; that you examine everything that you need to make sure that the schools are in the position to serve the needs of our students.

And those are challenges because we do have a budget challenge in place. Those are easier said than done. But you’ve got to at least know what you’re focused on. My top priority and I think my biggest contribution at this point is to make sure that you provide some stability, because this is a very unstable time. My biggest challenge is to build trust, because I’m running an organization where there’s a lack of trust everywhere. The reality is that our families and the staff sometimes don’t trust what’s going on in central office. So how do I begin to build trust? For example, one of the first things that I did was try to bring all the bargaining units together. The conversations were not going as well as we would like them to be prior to my arrival, and I think we’ve got to shift that. How do you do that?
I began meeting with each one of the bargaining units — not just the RTA. Basically my approach is, “What do you need?” And I asked my teachers, “What do you need to educate kids?” I tend not to lead by telling people what to do. I like to lead by telling people, “What do you need to do the best job you can?” So teachers will tell you a lot of reasonable things, like for example, “We want our
kids to have music and art.” That seems reasonable to me. What has been the saddest day for me was a Thursday night when I went to East High School and I was told that they were performing the first play in about 20 years. I saw teachers there, administrators, and parents. Let me ask you about your predecessor, JeanClaude Brizard, and his approach. He was a supporter of charter schools, for example. What is your opinion of charter schools?
We have done a lousy job as educators explaining to this community this whole reform movement. Education, in particular urban education, is driven by the federal government, both through cash and policies. All the reform initiatives that were put in place, so-called Brizard reform initiatives, are required and in many cases we enter into an agreement with both the federal government and the state education department, because there’s a large intrusion on the part of both. For example, many of our schools have been listed [by the state] as schools in need of improvement. When you miss the target for a couple of years you’re given four choices. One of them is to close low-performing schools and open charter schools. As a superintendent, I have to do the best I can under the current system. Now [RTA
President] Adam Urbanski and a whole group of us believe that charter schools are a way to innovate and could be very helpful. However, Rochester’s experience teaches us that we have to be very cautious, and I’ve got to make sure that we have quality schools at all levels. On the plus side, we have some charter schools that do pretty well, like True North. Who would be against those good schools, which keep parents in the city? But we had two charter schools that were closed because of low performance. So what happened to those students? That would be an interesting piece of research. There is strong resistance to charter schools in some pockets.
When it comes to charter schools my position is that all the tools to educate, including if it is a way to innovate through charter schools, you do it measurably, thoughtfully, and utilize that. The challenge that you have to be careful of is, when it comes to the charter-school movement, people either call you procharter or anti-charter. You can’t put me in one camp or the other. I believe that charter schools could make a contribution to the public-education menu. But you have to work with people. If you bring people together, you have hope and people feel empowered. Take all the division that goes on in this community. It’s not going to help us if I just continue to say, “Let’s get together.” You have to show by example what working together means. Let’s talk about teacher evaluations.
As an educator I believe that a teacher’s work matters. And I believe you can measure the contribution that a teacher’s work makes to the teaching and learning process. Teacher evaluations are extremely important to me. That’s a priority. Teaching has so many components. You have curriculum, instruction, and assessment. I call it the “C.I.A.” Most people talk about teacher evaluations just in terms of the individual. What if I give my teachers a lousy curriculum? In terms of input, my education experience tells me that teachers want, for example, to have input into the curriculum. And let’s talk about what part teachers play in delivering this curriculum. And I think there are ways that both teachers and administrators could agree on assessments. Whether you like tests or not, that’s the world we live in. So I would tell even those that argue with tests: philosophically, you may be talking about education as you would like it to be. But as a superintendent, I have to look at both: the world as it is for education and the world as I would like it to be. There are many factors that go into the educational outcome of our children. One of them is the quality of teachers; I don’t think anyone would discount that. The other thing is, how much support do teachers have? What is the quality of the school?
So what does a good school look like?
They engage kids in all kinds of things. In Greece for example, we have as much music, art as School of the Arts. That should be the norm. So we’ve been talking in Rochester, how do you engage all of these groups? If you provide a good menu of activities, that helps engage not just the students, but the whole school community. This community’s very blessed that we have a lot of talented people and a lot of people who want to do well for our kids. But we haven’t found ways to come together and work with each other. You see the mistrust, even in the school district. It appears that central office, for example, is removed from the schools. Now the question you need to ask me as a leader is, “How the heck are you going to reform the schools if there’s an appearance you’re removed from the schools?” That’s a legitimate question. Sometimes it’s as simple as going to a school and helping the principal get the kids off the bus. What is your view on the relationship between concentrated poverty and student performance?
Children in poverty face multiple challenges. Poverty is a range of things. If you’re poor and you come from a working parent, it’s very different, let’s say, than if you’re poor and you’re in foster care. I would love to look at the challenges that kids face and then match them with mitigating factors. Let’s say you have a situation where a family’s economics don’t allow a kid to be wellclothed in the winter time. I do believe that if this community comes together, we can make sure that all our kids are well-clothed. We know that children in poverty have fewer books in their homes. Can we match those kids with library cards for them and their families? What I’ve found in Rochester is that our kids’ challenges are poverty plus multiple adverse factors, and in order to mitigate them, common sense would tell us that you have to have multiple protective factors.
My biggest challenge is to build trust, because I’m running an organization where there’s a lack of trust everywhere.” B O L G E N VA R G A S
How the heck can you bring people together when they don’t trust each other? We have to break our own barriers. We have great barriers between administrators and unions, central office and the schools, the schools and the communities. You hear, “The school doesn’t respond to our needs.” You hear that constantly. We have signs of hope. There are a lot of good things going on. But we need to be more collaborative, more precise, and more targeted as to what we want our kids to know by the end of 12th grade. We have the capacity, but we have to find a way to use it more effectively and efficiently than we have. I do believe this community can improve education if all of us would concentrate and make sure that kids come to school, make sure they put in some effort, and make sure that they behave. Is the in-school suspension program effective?
I believe it’s much better than the alternative: release the kid with no program or anything. Do I believe that it could be improved? Anything could be improved. How do you build or maintain an organization when there’s the possibility of hundreds of teachers being let go? How do you keep teachers from fleeing?
employees. If all these cuts go on, Adam will have about 3,000, about half. So that would be a terrible mistake to make him a co-manager. I don’t think that it would be the best way to run a district. But we’re asking teachers what contribution they can make to student learning. Well, don’t you think it would be a fair question to ask, what contribution does central office make to student learning? Now that’s an uncomfortable question for both sides. But as a leader I want to ask that question. It is unfair to say that only teachers matter. And it’s equally unfair to say that only the superintendent’s work matters. And sometimes people who occupy this position have this superhero thing, “I will change things.” I can tell you I won’t change one thing unless I can bring people together and break down the mistrust. What’s your view on mayoral control of the city school district?
I’ve got no time in terms of paying attention to that right now. As a superintendent, I work for the school board. I will do the best job I can for my school board. I’m interested and I believe that Mayor Richards and his administration are and continue to be supportive of this school district. I know that they are open, willing, and ready to help if we ask. Is yours a political position as well as an administrative position?
It’s a leadership position. I think the reason I got the job is because I can bring people together. I’m very collaborative and also have strong convictions. I have the ability and a willingness to be open-minded, to work with people on behalf of students. I don’t look at political persuasion. If [County Executive] Maggie Brooks were to call me and say “Hey Bolgen, what can I help you with…?
You can work collaboratively with the union in order to help us. For example, Adam [Urbanski] and I met and discussed this very issue. We came up with ways in which methodically, measurably we make sure to create some stability. That’s part of my charge. That’s what I want to do. You do that even by example. The fact that Adam and I can sit at the same table and talk about collaborating on some of these issues, it may have a ripple effect and give confidence to the teachers that in September, things might be much better.
What would you ask her for?
But we’ve had so many different efforts aimed at getting those people together. How do you make that connection?
A lot of people believe [RTA President] Adam Urbanski helped chase Brizard out of Rochester. And many see Urbanski as a comanager of the district. Are you concerned about his influence?
You need to break the barriers to trust in this community. You saw it in the budget process.
I don’t believe that Adam is a co-manager. I don’t see him as such. I have 6,000-plus
If I do a couple of things right and I can make a contribution to Rochester – I am committed to this community – I wouldn’t mind ending my career here. Do I have other opportunities? Yes, I do.
It sounds like you believe the ideas are there, the understanding is there, but the implementation has been problematic.
We educators need to take responsibility for the educational outcome of our students, but we also have a responsibility to say, “Here are the factors that are getting in the way.” So when we pick up the phone, we’re more targeted, more deliberate about what we need from our social service agencies, from our families, from the business community, from our neighborhoods, from City Hall.
Can we expand summer school? Can we persuade the business community that we need more summer jobs for kids? Maybe she can help. A leader can collaborate. I never met a Republican or a Democratic kid. Most of them just like to play on the playground. All this fighting is about adults. Children look at their teacher like, “Does she care about me? What is she teaching me? Am I enjoying it?” Do you want to be the permanent superintendent?

Dining sauce in which his scallops of veal luxuriated had the right balance of sweet and savory, and just enough of the wine’s bouquet to keep it interesting.

(Marsala available as either chicken for $16, or veal for $19.) McCall is even a dab hand with a deep fryer, turning out light, tender calamari ($10) served with a brightly flavored cup of marinara that’s quite good. Paired with one of his well-composed salads, it’s big enough to make a meal. Even though it reminded us forcefully of its heyday back in the late 1990’s, we particularly enjoyed McCall’s grilled Caesar salad: two hearts of romaine, brushed with olive oil and walked across a hot grill before being dressed with a smoky and creamy dressing and served with two crunchy slices of crostini ($8).

Italian dressing Joey’s Pasta House 1789 Penfield Road 586-2426, joeyspastahouse.com Mon-Thu 11:30 a.m.-10 p.m., Fri 11:30 a.m.-11 p.m., Sat 4:30-11 p.m., Sun 4-9 p.m. [ REVIEW ] BY JAMES LEACH
Pick up the phone to make a reservation at pretty much any restaurant on a Monday night and you are likely to get a lot of answering machines. Monday is the traditional restaurant “weekend” — the chef ’s day off — when all but a handful of places tend to be closed. Joey’s Pasta House in Penfield is the exception to that rule: on a recent Monday evening at 5:30 p.m., its parking lot was packed to capacity with SUVs and minivans. Apparently every family in Penfield had decided to go out for an early dinner. Crowding the downstairs dining room to capacity and spilling over into the upstairs dining area, a noisy and basically happy crowd of moms, dads, and kids enjoyed mammoth plates of pasta, substantial and fragrant entrees, and endless baskets of bread. My family fit right in, even though the hostess
— who was effusively helpful and friendly on a second visit — seemed less than thrilled to see us, and even less happy when we declined the four top crowded between the hostess stand and server’s station. Joey’s Pasta House has been open for about nine months now. Its popularity stems from a winning combination of reasonable prices and large portions of familiar Italian food served in an atmosphere that can support everything from a casual family meal to a semi-formal soiree. That wide appeal makes Joey’s a convivial neighborhood place, often full of regulars who make it their restaurant of choice again and again. The atmosphere at Joey’s and the reasonably
efficient servers keep diners happy, but it’s the food that’s clearly the draw here. Executive Chef Joe McCall has been a feature in the Rochester restaurant scene for more than 13 years, and for a significant part of that time he’s been honing his take on Italian-American classics with a Rochester twist. His food is reliable, sometimes even great. But it is food without risk. Eating at Joey’s is like watching a tightrope walker doing his act three feet off the ground rather
than 30: it’s clear that there’s a lot of skill going into the act, but there’s no sense that he’s pushing his limits. That’s actually a great part of this restaurant’s appeal. You always know what you are getting when you sit down, and you can be certain that pretty much everyone at the table will like it. Chef McCall displays substantial technical skill in his cooking. His stocks are rich and flavorful, forming an excellent base for a thick, hearty lentil soup packed with nicely cut vegetables, a tomato Florentine soup that will ruin you for any other, and even a cream of broccoli soup whose velvety texture was a real pleasure to experience. (Soups $5 a bowl.) For my 6-year-old dining companion, the soup might have been the highlight of our meal — we ended up vying for the right to finish the Florentine after he’d already harvested every morsel of carrot, celery and spinach in the broth. His mother and I grudgingly shared the lentil soup, enjoying the complex flavor of a soup built on a welldeveloped vegetable base thickened with parmesan cheese rinds — an old-school cooking trick that I strongly endorse. Likewise, McCall’s marsala sauce is a model of its kind. The glossy and fragrant
technical skill, Joey’s falls short on its namesake pasta. I was looking forward to the homemade pappardelle and tagliatelle, about which I’d heard so much. But on two visits both were sadly overcooked and more than a bit gummy. The pappardelle (pappardelle Bolognese, $13) particularly reminded me of the thick dumplings my grandmother used to make with chicken. Dishes made with dried pasta fared much better: both the mountain of spaghetti under our meatballs and the penne enrobed in vodka sauce ($12) were pleasingly al dente. The penne was particularly gratifying: it actually stood up on the plate rather than slump into a slippery mass, as too often happens. Italian restaurants often live or die on their red sauce, and it’s fortunate that chef McCall is such a good chef that his cream and brown sauces could carry the restaurant by themselves. Compared to countless other excellent examples in our area, McCall’s sauce is too tomatoey, more acidic than it needs to be, and lacks the complexity of sauce that’s been left to simmer for hours on end. Usually, it’s possible to taste a bit of meatiness, as well as some herbs and garlic in a good red sauce, but that was not the case here. It was fine sauce that wouldn’t offend even the most timid of palates, and it played nicely with both meatballs and pasta, but it sadly wasn’t up to par with the rest of the chef ’s solid repertoire.

[ CLASSICAL ] Does it really seem possible that this is
the 13th and final season with Christopher Seaman as the music director of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra? Aren’t we used to his long legs, striding across the stage, tails flying out behind him? Haven’t we laughed during his pre-concert chats when his sense of humor came burbling through, piqued with his Canterbury-intoned British accent? And haven’t we been spoiled by his outstanding command of repertoire and of the baton? Although we are promised that Seaman will return as conductor emeritus on an annual basis, what we know is that this final concert of this season will be special. On the program are the Maestro’s favorite composers, Vaughan Williams, Elgar, and Brahms. Singers from Mercury Opera will highlight the “Serenade to Music” by Williams. When I interviewed Seaman last September for City, he was already looking forward to these musical selections. I may be giving away the ending when I say, just try to stay in your seats during the fourth and final movement of the Brahms Symphony No. 2 in D. It’s marked “Allegro con spirito” and is the perfect marking with which to mark this most special occasion. — BY PALOMA A CAPANNA PHOTO COURTESY Gelfand-Piper

Dine on swine [ review ] by frank de blase
Abilene’s air conditioner was put to the test Thursday, May 26, as Big Sandy and his Fly-Rite Boys put on a hot show in the packed room. It was weeknight but everyone was dancing and drinking as if it were Saturday night with no end in sight. Whittled down to its quartet fighting weight and scooping generously into virtually all of its albums, the band played slick and tight with those frayed edges I dig so much. It jumped, it jived, it swung. Rusbo Sloan and The Brothers of Rock had people pouring into Pineapple Jack’s Friday night as it poured hammers and nails outside. Pineapple Jack’s is a way-cool rock room with a big stage and a sound system that can be heard from space. Sloan and his crew used all the notches on the volume knob (yup, even the 11) with their heavy, heavy — but not quite metal — rock. It was solid, vicious, and fun. These cats are seasoned and it shows. Splished and splashed my way out of there to catch the tail end of The Spacelords’ set at the Bug Jar
(incidentally, happy 20th anniversary to the folks at the Jar). The show could’ve used a few more bodies to soak up the high end, but the band still delivered the goods. Spacelords are another example of hard and heavy that, despite myriad influences and lots of talent, really just comes down to good ol’ rock ’n’ roll when all is said and done. Hung out all day Saturday at Ontario Beach Park for the Roc City Rib Fest. Blues and barbeque is all you really ever need. People were lined up for miles at the various booths to dine on some swine while bands like The Dirty Bourbon Blues Band wailed from the gazebo. The Dirty Bourbon boys rock and are a lot of fun, but there’s a sinister streak in there, too. Deep Blue Dream rocked the fest as well. I can’t say enough about singerkeyboardist Lauren Faggiano’s voice. She positively burns up the blues- and soultinged rock her band serves up with pipes that go from blast furnace to purr. Great music for getting’ it on with your honey, or some honey-smoked meat. And really, what’s the difference?

Great white hope Great White Plains w/The Greener Grass Band Saturday, June 4 58 Main, 58 Main St., Brockport 9 p.m. | Free | 637-2383 Reverbnation.com/greatwhiteplains [ PROFILE ] By Frank De Blase
With a stomp and a howl, Great White Plains rocks with a savage bravado. Stripped down to the bare necessities — guitar and drums — GWP brings the heat, the beat, the sweat, and the threat. It’s blues that will leave you black and blue. Though just barely out of the gate, this Medina duo is strong with the comeon, light on the polish. It plays the brand of blues championed by lo-fi artists that hold the blues in high regard. Artists like The Black Keys, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, The Revelators, ’68 Comeback, Black Top, the late, great White Stripes, and Great White Plains all take base elements of the blues and keep the music raw, creating a sidecar for white blues musicians, who otherwise would just be borrowing from or visiting this black phenomenon. It isn’t the Delta, but you can get the blues in Medina. “For me,” says Great White Plains’ singer-guitarist Alex Fieg, “it’s universal. Blues…you can find it in everything. Every song on the radio you can break down to four chords. And I’m doing songs you can break down to three chords, maybe even two. And 12 City JUNE 1-7, 2011
that’s what drew me to it; it’s so simple, yet so powerful at the same time.” Necessity also kept the ranks at a deuce. Fieg and drummer Corey Berger were tired of pieces of the puzzle that didn’t fit. “We couldn’t find anyone congruent to our idea,” Berger says. “We were like, ‘We just want you to go along with what we’re doing because we’ve already figured it out,’” Fieg says. “I wanted to play blues guitar and slide guitar and fill up the sound with that — there wasn’t need for bass, there wasn’t need for a rhythm guitar. I’m satisfied just playing with a drummer.” Though rock duos are in the minority, groups like Great White Plains make you wonder why. There’s nothing missing. The beat is big and bad and driving, all the sonic bases are covered. The only thing missing is clutter. “There’s beauty in the silence and the space,” says Fieg. “It’s so raw, you can hear the emotion of the song. And my voice isn’t covered up with bullshit. People miss out on that — especially in music now. There’s so much going on.” Great White Plains’ sound is a simple-yet-
clever volley between its two members. Berger applies the loping thunder as Fieg switches off, playing simple runs and slide fills so ferocious it sounds as if he’s playing with a rusty hunting knife. The vocals are plaintive, matter of fact, and honest — the blues sans the hyperbole and histrionics, despite the lyrical weight. “It’s about struggle and it’s about heartache,” Fieg says. “I’m not going to try and write a song to make people escape reality, like a Lady Gaga
thing. I’d rather write something where you start with a problem, get it out, and it doesn’t even have to be resolved necessarily. It’s getting your problem out, it’s venting. A lot of our songs have love as a topic. Love is the universal answer, but there are different ways people use the word love. In today’s music they’ve given it a bad name.” Fieg and Berger make their own music; there’s not a lot of outside influence or distraction in their battle cry. The radio in their van doesn’t work; they don’t have Pandora. “I don’t listen to new music that much,” Fieg says. “I just want to be who I am.” Who he is still manages to take songs by contemporary artists like Cee-Lo Green, Gnarls Barkley, and Moby and paint them with a great white blues brush. The sugar pop may reel them in, but GWP’s blues keeps them there. The band has one album, “Heavy Dose,” produced by the extraordinary Calvin May. Another is in the works, again with May at the helm, and due sometime this summer. Meanwhile the band digs deeper and deeper into its own groove. Of course there is the odd pop cover that pops up every now and then. The band has noticed some dudes in the audience scratching their heads over this while their girlfriends dig it. This is why bars have ladies’ night, after all. Fieg agrees. “It’s always ladies night,” he says. But Berger stresses the No. 1 thrill is their own. “A lot of people can play most of the songs we’re playing,” he says. “But it’s the places you pick out and where you put yourself into the song. That makes it so special at that moment. There’s no other place I’d rather be.”

FOLK | Todd Snider
A CAPPELLA | Ball in the House
Singer-songwriter Todd Snider’s style crosses through and between Americana, alt-country, and folk. The 44-year-old Portlander owns his own record company (Aimless Records) that has recently released a double-disc live album, “The Storyteller,” featuring tracks that span Snider’s 17year career. The collection is vintage Snider, and captures many of the narratives that the folk-rocker has been known to share at his intimate shows. Thursday’s show is sure to be another penetrating experience filled with quirky anecdotes and wholesome, beautifully written music.
Taking its name from an episode of “The Brady Bunch,” Boston’s Ball in the House may be the only a cappella group in history whose work is referenced in the online Urban Dictionary. The band is behind the Cool Whip jingle, and the related game where points are scored if you can get people to sing along. The members of the group take inspiration from genres like old-school R & B and contemporary pop. The five voices singing in harmony create some catchy originals and unique versions of familiar songs. Despite no instruments, look for founder Jon J. Ryan to lay down a solid foundation of vocal percussion. It all works like a charm.

Rock/Pop | East End Festival
FOLK-ROCK | Ray LaMontagne
The East End Festival celebrates its 21st anniversary this year and continues to push for a more family-friendly atmosphere by focusing on music, food, fitness, and fun. I definitely agree with three of those. For anyone new to town, this is the first of three East End Festivals to be held this summer; the others take place July 8 and August 12. Highlights for the June outing include 13 bands on five stages with headliners Uncle Plum, 50/50, Something Else, Thousands of One (pictured), and Joe Beard Band. New this year is an optional VIP ticket, which grants holders a special entrance to the festival, food by some of the neighborhood’s best restaurants, a bathroom trailer, free parking, and beer and wine tickets.
Ray LaMontagne decided on a career in music after hearing “Treetop Flyer” by Stephen Stills; the former shoefactory worker has since seen his debut 2004 release, “Trouble,” go gold, and sold more than 1.5 million copies of his albums. Known for his sensitive songwriting and distinctive raspy vocals, LaMontagne is touring on the back of his Grammy-nominated 2010 release, “God Willin’ and The Creek Don’t Rise,” along with the band The Pariah Dogs. Brandi Carlisle and Secret Sister open the show.
The first East End Festival of the season takes place Friday, June 3, 5-11 p.m. on East Avenue, from Mathews to Gibbs streets. Regular admission is $4; $40 for VIP tickets.

Madrigalia’s upcoming concert will feature music by Schumann, Elgar, and Camille Saint-Saens. PHOTO PROVIDED
Singing of night, sleep, and Madrigalia Madrigalia Friday, June 3, 7:30 p.m. St. Mary’s Church, 15 St. Mary’s Place Sunday, June 5, 4 p.m. Downtown Presbyterian Church, 121 N. Fitzhugh St. $20 ($5 students) | 230-2894, Madrigalia.org [ PREVIEW ] BY PALOMA CAPANNA
“Draw On, Sweet Night,” the title of Madrigalia’s upcoming concerts, is drawn from a poem by John Wilbye (1574-1638) set to music by John Rutter (b. 1945). The 17 voices of Madrigalia will present their chamber-choir concert featuring songs about night, sleep, and dreams twice this weekend, Friday at St. Mary’s Church and Sunday at Downtown Presbyterian Church. “It’s interesting how you can think about ‘night’ so differently — you’re dreading it, you count your blessings — so many composers have found this inspiration from night and have found different ways to express it across time,” says Dan McInerney, the administrative and concert manager for Madrigalia. In these days leading up to the concerts, McInerney is reflecting on the lyrics of the songs for the program, which gets him into the poetry of the works. The program list uses such words as “sweet night,” “threshold of night,” “sun goes down,” “shining night,” and
“golden slumbers.” Madrigalia uses themebased concerts to tie together a range of genres and composers. Madrigalia was conceived as a music group
in 1975 after a performance of “Camelot” in the Opera Under the Stars series in Highland Bowl, and it has sustained as a Rochester-based chamber choral group for more than 30 years. The timing of these concerts in June, at the end of the traditional performance season, was an intentional effort to fit the mood of the music to the lightening mood of the days. The pieces were selected by Lee Wright, Madrigalia’s music director. “Lee did a great job of selecting the work. When I get to June, I think about the fact that the daylight is long, the solstice is coming, and we can stay outside to 9 o’clock,” says McInerney. McInerney is particularly taken by the work “Zigeunerleben” (“a Gypsy’s Life”) by Robert Schumann, which he says is “all about gypsies — in the woods, bonfires lit, dancing, cymbals clashing, wild abandon.” McInerney says, “Schumann did a whole series of these gypsy songs using mid-19th century poems. You might look at them and ask, are they really true? It’s not something that we would think about in Rochester.” The selections about sleep and dreams, says McInerney, involve a work titled “Sleep” from American composer Eric Whitacre (b. 1970). The work is a poem, for which Whitacre wrote a score that was recorded
by singers around the globe. The singers recorded the parts and electronically sent them to Whitacre, who put them together into a “virtual chorus” of 200 voices from 58 countries. “We were talking about that at rehearsal, and we’re pretty interested to sing this work,” says McInerney. The selections about the “not-so-calm” part of the night include a piece titled “Serenade” by English composer Edward Elgar (1857-1934). “He talks about dreams as being all too brief — that if you wake up, they’re gone,” says McInerney. He describes the mood of the piece as coming from a contrast between the three lower parts (alto, tenor, bass) while the sopranos glide above them in a completely fluid melody. Finally, what McInerney characterizes as songs for the “calm” part of the night come from pieces titled “Sure on This Shining Night” by American composer Morten Lauridsen (b. 1943) and “Calme des Nuits” (“Calm of the Nights”) by French composer Camille Saint-Saëns (1835-1921). Madrigalia belongs to the Greater Rochester
Choral Consortium, which includes more than 25 groups as members, from the Bach Children’s Chorus to the Genesee Valley Orchestra & Chorus, to the Rochester Oratorio Society. McInerney says that several members of Madrigalia also sing with other choral groups in the area, and that Madrigalia also collaborates in showcase concerts, such as the annual Early Music Festival hosted by Musica Spei. McInerney credits the unique sound that Madrigalia brings to the Rochester choral scene as “performances with the forces that the composers had in mind when they wrote.” What he means by this is that many of these and other choral works were originally composed for small groups, sometimes even just a quartet. “When you start to double up on different parts, you get a different sound,” says McInerney. “By the time you get up to the size of the Rochester Oratorio Society, you have 30 to 40 voices on a part and it becomes a voice orchestra.” McInerney, who also sings as a soloist in churches as well as in Rochester Oratorio Society and Voices, says that there are some familiar faces at concerts for Madrigalia and other groups. “But I do also see people at some concerts that I don’t see anywhere else,” he says. “Sometimes we forget how profoundly we can touch somebody in that audience or that congregation, and maybe only two to three times a year that person walks up to you who says that you touched them,” says McInerney. “In every audience you look until you find that one person who is clearly looking at you and you sing to them and that makes it worth it.”

ART EVENT | FIRST FRIDAY
It’s June, which means a few things for the arts community. Many — but not all — of the local college galleries have gone on vacation. It’s the sixth month, which means Rochester Contemporary’s super successful, annual “6x6” show and sale is back. And finally, the weather allows you to fully enjoy your First Friday art trek. The monthly, city-wide gallery night is held by non-profit, university, and commercial and indie art venues in Rochester, where we all trot about from station to station, filling our eyes and ears with what’s new and exciting in our community. On Friday, June 3, 6-9 p.m. (and sometimes later) you can check out art openings, poetry readings, and musical performances in various locations. Visit firstfridayrochester.org for a list of this month’s participating venues, and check our online events calendar at rochestercitynewspaper.com for more receptions and exhibits. You can preview Rochester Contemporary’s “6x6x2011: Global” exhibition Wednesday-Friday, June 1-3, 1-10 p.m. (as well as online at roco6x6x.org). The actual opening party and artwork sale takes place Saturday, June 4, 6-10 p.m., and admission is $5. By now you know the drill: buy numbered stickers for $20 each, stalk your favorite pieces, and at the signal, claim them. Online purchasing follows on June 6 at 10 a.m. At the Record Archive (33 1/3 Rockwood St., 244-1210), a group of Rochester artists will pay tribute to another in “Declan Ryan: An American Icon,” with a variety of works by Trudy Feikert, The Professor of Rap, the Family Storms, and more. Over at the Hungerford Building (1115 E. Main St., thehungerford.com), The Rochester Art Club Studio (Door 2, Suite 437, 439) will feature work by Kathleen Hanney and Phil Bliss at a 5-9 p.m. reception. Stop by Crocus Clay Works (Suite 225, 414-5643, crocusclayworks.com) to check out “Graffita: Not Your Average Brazilian Post Card, Sabbatical Artwork by Kaaren Anderson,” also 5-9 p.m. For one night only, 6-9 p.m., you can visit post-apocalyptic “Museum of Future Past” (Door 2, Suite 129), which through artifacts and Marvel comic story arcs will bring viewers into the mythos of superhero and super-villain characters no longer with us. “The age of heroes has come to an end,” says artist Chris Wells, “but hope still remains.” Studio 215 in the Anderson Alley Building (250 N. Goodman St., 966-5953) will host “School’s Out for Summer,” a collaboration with students who want to express themselves outside of the art room. Artist and educator Heather Erwin will be on hand to aid with exploring the creative process, and supplies will be provided while they last. Over at the Firehouse Gallery at Genesee Pottery (713 Monroe Ave., 271-5183), take in “Intake,” an exhibition of new work by artist and Nazareth College professor Mitch Messina. The Renaissance Art Gallery (74 St. Paul St., 423-8235) will hold a reception 6-8 p.m. for “Through the Artist’s Eye,” (pictured) a show of new oils and watercolors by Judy Soprano. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

of what had by the mid-50’s come to be known as the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical. Most of these shows were adaptations of other works, so it’s fitting for Shaw to choose a musical based on Shaw’s “Pygmalion,” the story of Eliza Doolittle and Henry Higgins set to music by Frederick Loewe and Alan Jay Lerner. Benedict Campbell plays Higgins, and the often-underused Neil Barclay as Alfred P. Doolittle finally has a role worthy of his talents. Nonetheless, isn’t it also time to give the show a rest? There are so many good musicals that deserve to be revived, but every “My Fair Lady” and “Camelot” (see the 2011 schedule for the Stratford Festival) keep them from the stage for at least one more year. Other productions worth considering: “Maria Severa” is the season’s second musical, a new

With a little bit of luck 2011 Shaw Festival Through October 30 Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada 800-511-SHAW, shawfest.com [ PREVIEW ] BY MICHAEL LASSER
The Shaw Festival’s roster of plays for 2011 looks like any other recent season, but for some reason it feels hard to get excited about most of Artistic Director Jackie Maxwell’s decisions even though this is the Shaw’s 50th anniversary season. There’s the usual mix of plays by George Bernard Shaw and his contemporaries, a couple of musicals, and two current plays that have become part of Maxwell’s approach to programming even if they have little to do with the festival’s mandate. Yet most of the choices feel more-or-less perfunctory, although some of them do raise a question or two. The three plays by Shaw this summer include “Candida,” Shaw’s entertaining take on love and marriage, and the monumental “Heartbreak House,” a difficult play for actors, directors, and audiences alike. Written in 1919, it’s a long, brilliant, not-always-easyto-follow examination of the upper class’s failure to understand the lessons of World War I as Britain slouches toward disaster in its own self-satisfied way. The third Shaw play this summer, “On the Rocks,” is a political comedy about a prime minister who goes from having no ideas (George W. Bush?) to having too many (Newt Gingrich?). I’ve never seen this rarely produced work, but will I actually be seeing it? Maxwell has had the moxie — or more likely 22 City June 1-7, 2011
the effrontery — to hire Canadian playwright Michael Healey to write a new version of the play. It’s the perfect conceit for a postmodern world where only shifting perceptions matter because there is no objective reality. So anything you write is fair game for somebody else to rewrite. It’s the start of a new project for the Festival — as if Shaw is no longer good enough to stand on his own, assuming he has an “own” of his own to stand on. So what’s to look forward to? For me, it’s not the plays by Shaw but rather J.M. Barrie’s “The Admirable Crichton” and Lennox Robinson’s “Drama at Inish — A Comedy.” Barrie is one
of those appealing English playwrights whose work keeps showing up at the Shaw. This season, it’s “Crichton,” a 1902 social comedy that tests the convictions of a British aristocrat who argues that class distinctions are artificial. When he and his family find themselves stranded on an island, their butler Crichton takes over. But what happens when they’re rescued? This is the kind of revival that the Shaw was put on this earth to do; the festival should be able to pull it off…admirably. The other play I’m eager to see is “Drama at Inish,” by a playwright who is often overlooked even though he was part of the Irish theatrical renaissance with Lady Gregory, O’Casey, Synge, and Yeats. In fact, Shaw has never done any of Robinson’s plays before. It looks at what happens to a happy town when a repertory company shows up one summer to perform plays by the likes of Ibsen, Strindberg, and Chekhov, and then takes their melancholy truths to heart — a comedy about theater itself. True, “My Fair Lady” is one of the towering American musicals, perhaps the finest example
work by Jay Turvey and the Shaw Festival’s musical director, Paul Sportelli, based on the story of the eponymous mother of fado, Portugal’s street music, as she moves from the slums of Lisbon to become a world-famous singer. For moviegoers, Tennessee Williams’ “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” conjures up memories of Elizabeth Taylor or Paul Newman. Both were gorgeous in the 1958 movie version, but Hollywood’s production code was still in effect. The result is significantly different from what Williams originally wrote. It remains to be seen if Moya O’Connell and Gray Powell as Maggie and Brick can make an audience forget Taylor and Newman for a couple of hours, even though the always-powerful Jim Mezon will be there to fill the stage as Big Daddy. After its great success as the noontime play in 2008, Ferenc Molnar’s “The President” returns. In less than 45 minutes, be prepared to encounter a bank president, a young heiress, her secret marriage to a Commie taxi driver, and the very funny way the president solves the problem the marriage raises. The cast is close to a Shaw dream come true, including the wonderful William Vickers and Michael Ball. Americans old enough to remember it will recognize the story from its 1961 movie adaptation, “One, Two, Three,” directed by Billy Wilder and starring James Cagney. Finally, if there are exceptions to my carping about the season back in the first paragraph, they may lie in the two new plays in the new Studio Theater, located in the Production Centre behind the Festival Theatre building. The plays this year are “When the Rain Stops Falling” by Andrew Bovell, the Shaw’s first try at a work from Australia, and “Topdog/Underdog” by Suzan-Lori Parks, about two con-artist brothers whose father named them Lincoln and Booth as a joke. Bovell’s sprawling work begins in 1959 and ends 80 years later, having told the story, mainly, of a single family. Parks’ profane take on the Cain and Abel story won the Pulitzer Prize for drama in 2002.

“Whether you like it or not, Dudes are emerging as the new, self-determined Class in 21st C. America,” explain the authors of “Contemporary Dude Theory” on their blog. Now in its second edition, this compendium of 21st century Dude science helps readers navigate the tricky strata of Dudes, Folks, Dicks, and Monsters, and is penned by Lou Joseph, Mary Lewandowski, and Ian Downey. You might recognize the latter two from The Bloody Noes, the hyper-intelligent and highly entertaining performance art duo who, along with friends, brought the Saturnalia Pageant to Rochester audiences this past December. CDT “concerns itself with the cataloging and observation of the social class of 21st-Century Dudes,” and the authors would like to point out “21st-Century Dude is not the same as (but incorporates) the 20th-Century Dude model, a blend of Jeff Lebowski and the common ‘Bro.’” The long-awaited First Dude Theory Symposium will commence at the Flying Squirrel Community Space (285 Clarissa St.) on Sunday, June 5, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., followed by a group discussion, final thoughts, and closing address. The event will feature a multimedia presentation of material by serious and amateur Dude theorists, and perhaps even you, if you answered the authors’ call for submissions last month. “Our knowledge will not be complete without additional data and perspectives provided by a range of persons,” say the authors in a recent press release. Further investigation into dude-related topics will be conducted through community discussion and debate, and pizza will be provided. The symposium is free to attend. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit flyingsquirrel. rocus.org or dudetheory.blogspot.com, where you can also access the Contemporary Dude Theory booklet. Copies of the second edition are also available for $8; send requests via email. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY [ Friday, June 4Saturday, June 5 ] Sulpher Springs Festival.

Fundraiser for adults only. SPECIal EVENt | SkatE Park rally
There’s a lot to be said about skate culture, including the incredible sense of self and independence (not to mention coordination) it lends many developing kids. For the past few years, efforts have been in place to create a space for skaters and BMX riders to play, in a projected park beneath the east side of the Frederick Douglass/ Susan B. Anthony Memorial Bridge. Some doubted, and many nay-sayed, claiming that Rochester is full of half-pipe dreams. But with the recent announcement of $2 million dollars reserved in the city budget for the Roc City Skatepark, those dreams are closer than ever to becoming reality. On Saturday, June 4, efforts to actualize the dream continue, and you can help out while you get a taste of the fun to come. From noon to 6 p.m., join other supporters for the Rally for the Roc City Skatepark, which will feature an outdoor skateboarding and BMX biking experience, exhibitions by pro skateboarders and BMX riders, contests, all-ages physical activities, family activities, music, an art exhibit, silent auction, video-game lounge, a parent-oasis area, and delicious food. Announced pro athletes include Marcus McBride, Jackson Curtin, Lenny Rivas, Zered Basset, and Tony Hamlin. The rally is free to attend (pre-register and collect sponsorships to ride), but activities and refreshments are available for purchase. The rally will be followed by a VIP event hosted by Max at High Falls (260 Browns Race) 6-8 p.m. The $50 tickets include beer and wine, hors d’oeuvres, and a cash bar with music, an art exhibit, and silent auction. Purchase tickets at Marshall Street Bar & Grill, Record Archive, Park Ave. Bikes, RASP, and KRUDCO. Visit roccitypark.org for more info. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY Antique Appraisal Fair and Book Sale.

Rochester seems to be made up of 100 unique communities and cultures. Many of these communities celebrate their identity throughout the summer with small festivals. Rochester’s Greek Festival will kicks off the 2011 celebrations, running Thursday, June 2-Sunday, June 5. Greek Fest has become a Rochester favorite for its delicious Greek food and desserts, live music, and dancing. Admission to the festival is free. Slides and a rock wall will be provided for kids’ entertainment, while parents can shop at Greek boutiques. The festival is located at 962 East Ave. and will take place from Thursday-Saturday 11 a.m.-11 p.m. and Sunday noon11 p.m. Visit rochestergreekfestival.org for more information. The 19th Ward will also hold its annual Square Fair Saturday, June 4, to celebrate the diversity shared by the 19th Ward community. The festival will feature a garage sale, flea market, used book sale, and children’s games. Located at Aberdeen Square Park, the festival begins with a pancake breakfast at 8 a.m., a parade at 12:30 p.m., and food vendors and live entertainment will continue throughout the day.

Hundreds of artisans and vendors will gather along the Erie Canal to sell everything from food to jewelry and pottery. There is also a battle of the bands and the famous Fairport duck race, where 5000 rubber ducks are dumped into the canal and race to the other side.

THEATER | “WEST SIDE STORY”
“West Side Story” is regarded as one of the greatest Broadway shows and songs like “Maria,” “I Feel Pretty,” and “Somewhere” give it one of the most memorable scores of all time. The Rochester Broadway Theater League brings the Broadway tour of the classic show to the Auditorium Theater now through Sunday, June 5. Based on the plot of “Romeo & Juliet,” “West Side Story” revolves around the rivalry between two teenage street gangs in 1950’s New York City. Protagonists Tony and Maria fall in love despite being connected to opposing gangs. The play was Steven Sondheim’s big Broadway break, and has continued to gain attention since its opening in 1957. The new Broadway cast album won the Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album in 2010. Note that the recommended viewing age for this performance is 13 years or older. The show runs Wednesday-Thursday 7:30 p.m., Friday 8 p.m., Saturday 2 & 8 p.m., and Sunday 2 & 7 p.m. Ticket prices range from $32.50 to $67.50. The Auditorium is located at 875 E.

A strange Passover in Mexico [ review ] by george grella
“Nora’s Will” (NR), directed by Mariana Chenillo Now playing
Once produced in significant numbers by a thriving industry and exported around the world, Mexican movies nowadays pretty much amount to a rarity in this country. Whatever happens in motion pictures down there, very little of it crosses the border, which makes the importation of the new picture, “Nora’s Will,” originally released more than a year ago, a special occasion. Adding to that special quality, the movie, a seriocomic exploration of a most unusual subject,

deals with a world and a culture that I am sure few North Americans knew existed. The movie begins with a sequence in a posh apartment, where a woman, the Nora of the title, whose face we never see, methodically packs up what seems a good deal of her life. She writes out a series of envelopes addressed to various people, locks up some photographs and diaries, posts notes on numerous containers of food, and even spells out a series of recipes for a Passover dinner. As her ex-husband, José Kurtz (Fernando Luján), who lives across the street, soon learns, all those arrangements constitute a careful preparation for suicide. Once he discovers her body, he calls her doctor, who is also his friend, and his son Ruben (Ari Brickman), who in turn calls Rabbi Jacowitz (Max Kerlow), and then the fun begins. Although Jewish law demands that Nora be buried within 24 hours of her death, he explains, the observance of Passover precludes a funeral until after the ceremonies are over. The rabbi calls
in a crew of assistants, who pack Nora in dry ice to preserve her for five days, and a devout young officer of the temple, Moisés (Enrique Arreola), to recite the appropriate prayers. A nonbeliever, José seethes over the situation, which he regards as another example of his ex-wife’s ability to manipulate people, even posthumously. Impatient with Moisés’s piety, the rabbi’s Talmudic hairsplitting, and his son’s obsequious regard for his father-in-law, a rich member of the congregation, he embarks on a series of insults. He shocks them all by ordering a pizza with bacon, ham, and sausage, and making some separate funeral arrangements, including flowers, religious items, and a cruciform casket, with a Catholic organization. The movie constantly oscillates between the serious matters of loss, faith, and grief and the frequent comedy of José’s determination to thwart his ex-wife’s plans and the rabbi’s theology. A dropped photograph leads him to the discovery of her infidelity and an angry search through her secret papers, where at the same time, his two young granddaughters find their grandmother’s sizable vibrator, which they mistake for a flashlight. The rabbi revenges José’s insult by invoking Jewish law against burying suicides with other family members in the main area of the cemetery, which naturally enrages him more. His own solution to the dilemma awakens a spirit of forgiveness and leads to a final and

International incidents [REVIEW] BY DAYNA PAPALEO
“The Hangover Part II” (R), directed by Todd Phillips Now playing
“Incendies” (R), written and directed be Dennis Villeneuve Opens Friday
essentially comic reconciliation with all the disparate forces he opposes throughout the film. “Nora’s Will” should surprise most audiences north of the border, who I am sure would never expect a Mexican film to deal with Jewish culture and customs. It shows the presence of an obviously large, affluent, and devout Jewish population in a nation many of us probably regard as violent, impoverished, and very Catholic. With a few changes, the whole movie in fact could very easily be mistaken for the work of Woody Allen. The director, Mariana Chenillo, exhibits a good deal of skill in her management of the small cast, mostly within the limits of Nora Kurtz’s apartment, without ever allowing the action to sink into staginess or claustrophobic dullness. She handles the rhythms of the narrative with ease, balancing the comical and the emotional without a hint of exaggeration in either direction, allowing the situation to generate the appropriate responses. Aside from the deft confidence of the director, the real triumph of the movie belongs to Fernando Luján, who provides an almost impeccable performance. He underacts so thoroughly and naturally, mostly through a series of small gestures and expressive facial reactions that the film hardly needs its subtitles. The camera focuses constantly on him, but he never allows it to magnify his emotions or his personality — he virtually carries “Nora’s Will.”
So “The Hangover Part II” closed out that long holiday weekend with a staggering box-office haul quite north of $130 million, which means that a) a third “Hangover” installment will be in motion before the ink on the deposit slip dries; and b) many, many people spent 102 minutes not laughing through an alleged comedy that isn’t so much a sequel as it is a remake of “The Hangover,” except darker and uglier. And please know that I totally dug the original, a cleverly constructed blend of bawdy raunch and often surreal humor, with a soupçon of genuine surprise. But “The Hangover Part II” is merely a stale Mad Lib of the first film, lazily replacing a few of the nouns and verbs but pushing any so-called shock value into squirmy territory.
Zach Galifianakis and Ken Jeong in “The Hangover Part II.” PHOTO COURTESY WARNER BROS. PICTURES
“It happened again,” Bradley Cooper’s Phil actually says as “Hangover II” opens, setting up the exact same outline as the Wolf Pack tries to piece together the hazy pre-wedding events that caused them to misplace yet another person. This time we’re invited as Ed Helms’ Stu prepares to marry an irrelevant woman (in this particular universe, they all are) whose convenient Thai heritage gets everyone in closer proximity to the hedonism of Bangkok. It’s not spoiling anything to say that Phil, Stu, and Zach Galifianakis’ whacked-out Alan convene one evening for a low-key beer to toast the impending nuptials, only to regain consciousness in a scummy hotel the next morning with no memory of what happened to the bride’s teenage brother Teddy (Ang Lee’s son Mason) or why he would have left his class ring behind with his finger still in it. Now, here’s how this sequel works: instead of a missing tooth, Stu wakes up with a tribal tattoo on the side of his face. And instead of an adorable baby, Alan totes around a cute monkey. And instead of Ken Jeong’s manic Mr. Chow, the answers lie with — oh, wait; it’s the crowd-pleasing stereotype Chow again, attending to his criminal activity in the Far East as Alan’s plus-one for the wedding. And instead of marrying a stripper, Stu... well, let’s just say that you’re in Bangkok now. Chow jumps out of confined spaces, Stu screeches, and Phil works the phones, trying to buy time as they hunt for Teddy. Alan’s job is to be the passive-aggressive man-child, and for this he’s rewarded with the funniest lines, like being “a stay-at-home son.” But “funniest lines” is a relative term at best, since the phoned-in script isn’t really funny at all, despite following the blueprint of the first. If anything, the banter in “Hangover II” is angry, even threatening, so much so that I honestly thought that we might be headed into a “Midnight Express” sort of situation
here. Cooper plays Phil self-serving and resentful (his vulgar tirade at the IHOP bachelor brunch is more unsettling than comical), while Alan has obvious and serious psychological problems. Stu even cops to a hooker-loving dark side, though all this disturbing confession does is finally earn him the respect of his father-in-law, who had previously compared him to weak rice pudding. Then, of course, Mike Tyson shows up, and what was simply lame becomes completely embarrassing. Their late mother’s specific wishes are
to be buried face-down, naked, and with neither marker nor stone. “No epitaphs for those who don’t keep their promises,” reads Nawal’s will. Her executor then slides two envelopes across the table to her adult children, Jeanne (Mélissa Désormeaux-Poulin) and Simon (Maxim Gaudette), with delivery instructions to the father they never knew and the brother they never knew they had. Thus begins Québécois filmmaker Denis Villeneuve’s “Incendies,” a moving, Oscar-nominated drama that unfolds as a daughter combs the still-bruised present day for clues about her mother’s mysterious past. Basing his film on the play by Wajdi Mouawad, Villeneuve weaves the narrative from Nawal’s early life in an unnamed Middle Eastern country (presumably Lebanon) through Jeanne’s efforts to both carry out her mother’s final request and learn more about her in the process. It’s no surprise that the most resonance lies with Nawal’s twisty story; as played by Lubna Azabal (2005’s “Paradise Now”) in a subtle but powerful performance, Nawal is confronted with the extremism and patriarchy of her time and place. Unfortunately, as the resilient victim, Nawal never really comes into focus. Though, do we ever truly know our parents?
ALL ABOUT EVE
Thursday, June 2, 8 p.m. Bette Davis stars as legendary stage actress Margo Channing in this tour de force drama of jealousy, manipulation, and betrayal in the world of the theater. Anne Baxter plays Margo’s rival, ambitious wannabe Eve; the supporting cast includes George Sanders, Celeste Holm, and Marilyn Monroe. (Joseph L. Mankiewicz, US 1950, 138 min.)
WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE? Movies for movie lovers, 6 nights a week. Joan/Bette
Friday, June 3, 8 p.m. Baby Jane Hudson was once a hugely popular child star of the vaudeville stage. Now she’s a drunken madwoman (Bette Davis) “caring” for her sister (Joan Crawford), a movie star whose own career abruptly ended when she was crippled in a car crash that was no accident. Robert Aldrich’s scathing, shamelessly entertaining indictment of the exploitative star system makes brilliant use of these two real-life grand dames. (Robert Aldrich, US 1962, 132 min.)

Classic and Convenient in Park Avenue
324 Canterbury Road As the city of Rochester expanded outward from downtown at the turn of the last century, new neighborhoods were created wherever the street trolley lines were built. Neighborhoods such as the 19th Ward, Beechwood, Maplewood, and Browncroft experienced their major growth, with many handsome houses built in their respective tracts between the 1890s and 1920s. For house lovers who love to explore interiors of historic homes, the Landmark Society’s 41st Annual House and Garden Tour in the city’s Browncroft neighborhood this Saturday and Sunday will fulfill your desire to visit beautiful homes in a beautiful part of the city (for ticket information, call 546-7029 ext. 11). As you explore the Browncroft neighborhood, be sure to drive over to a beautiful historic gem at 324 Canterbury Road in the Park Avenue neighborhood. This handsome, c. 1910 Colonial Revival house awaits the owner who loves the challenge of restoring a pristine house whose original details, hardware, light fixtures, parquetedged hardwood floors, woodwork and layout await the “magic touch” that a sympathetic owner would bring to this lovely residence. The first floor features an enclosed vestibule that opens onto a spacious center hallway that extends the full width of the house. The large living room is entered via a colonnade and bi-fold wood doors with leaded glass. The room features original varnished woodwork, fireplace, and extensive bookcases with leaded glass doors. French doors open onto the large, front porch where many summer
evenings will be passed enjoying the view of the neighboring houses and gardens. To the north of the hall, one enters the dining room through another set of bi-fold wood and leaded glass doors. An unpainted coffered ceiling and built-in, floor-to-ceiling china cabinets lend the room character and elegance. The kitchen retains its original butler’s pantry with glassfront doors and pull-out drawers, as well as a 1940s stove and ceramic sink with washboard. Designed with Arts and Crafts detailing, the split staircase features varnished wood work, square newel posts, and spindles. Four spacious bedrooms are located on the second floor. The north bedroom includes a large, enclosed sleeping porch with original windows, perfect for enjoying morning coffee or an evening cocktail. The bathroom retains its original claw-footed bathtub. Lit by several dormers, the large attic includes two bedrooms and a full bathroom, in addition to ample storage space. The cozy backyard offers great potential for the gardener who appreciates mature trees and a shaded area where hosta, fern, and other shade-loving plants will thrive. This 1,848 square foot , 0.12 acre property is listed at $134,900 through Michael Dixon with Nothnagle Realtors, 585-300-9871.

[ news of the weird ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD Rights of women are severely restricted in Pakistan’s tribal areas and among Muslim fundamentalists, but the rights of the country’s estimated 50,000 “transgenders” blossomed in April when the country’s Supreme Court ordered the government to accept a “third sex” designation on official documents (instead of forcing a choice of “male” or “female”). The court further recommended that transgenders be awarded government job quotas and suggested “tax collector” as one task for which they are particularly suited, since their presence at homes and businesses still tends to embarrass debtors into paying up quickly (especially since many transgenders outfit themselves, and behave, flamboyantly).
(1) Homeless Charles Mader, a convicted sex offender in Albuquerque, was arrested in May for failure to report his change of address, as required by law. Mader had moved out of his registered address, which was a Dumpster, into a community shelter. (2) Robert Norton Kennedy, 51, was arrested in Horry County, S.C., in May and charged with assault and battery, despite the humble tattoo on his forehead referencing a Bible verse and reading, “Please forgive me if I say or do anything stupid.”
Occasionally (as News of the Weird has reported), patrons of art galleries mistake ordinary objects as the actual art (for example, solemnly “contemplating” a broom inadvertently left behind by a janitor), and sometimes the opposite mistake occurs. At the Boijmans van Beuningen museum in Rotterdam in May, a wandering patron absent-mindedly traipsed through a re-creation of Wim T. Schippers’ floor-level Peanut Butter Platform (a 40-square-foot installation of
creamy spread). (The museum manager had declined to fence in the exhibit, which he said would spoil its beauty.)
-- A college senior in Colorado complained long-distance in March to the Better Business Bureau in Minnesota’s Twin Cities because EssayWritingCompany.com, headquartered in Farmington, Minn., failed to deliver the class paper she ordered (at $23 per page). (The meaning of “academic dishonesty” is evolving, but it is still a sometimes-expellable offense to submit someone else’s work as one’s own.) -- Filipino Henson Chua, working in the U.S., was indicted in March for illegally bringing back into the country an American-made military spy plane and openly offering it for sale for $13,000 on eBay. Sophisticated equipment such as the RQ-11B “Raven” Unmanned Aerial Vehicle requires highlevel government approval to prevent acquisition by U.S. enemies.

(1) Sharon Newling, 58, was arrested in Salisbury, N.C., in April and charged with shooting at her stepson with a .22-caliber rifle. She denied shooting “at” him, but said she was just shooting toward him “to make him stop working on his truck.” (2) In April in Greensboro, N.C., Stephanie Preston and Bobby Duncan were married in front of family and friends at the local Jiffy Lube. (3) A 25-year-old man in Okaloosa County, Fla., was arrested and charged with misdemeanor trespassing after he entered the Club 51 Gentlemen’s Club, from which he had been banned after a February incident. The man told police that he knew he had been banned from a strip club but couldn’t remember which one.
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 33 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Review past relationships and why they didn’t work. Once you realize what qualities you want your partner to have, you will find it much easier to recognize who is a candidate for a long-term relationship and who isn’t. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Participating in community activity or attending an event or seminar of interest will draw people who share your principles and are likely to complement you emotionally, mentally and physically.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’ll be attracted to the wrong partners. Before you step into intimacy with someone, find out how available the person is. Avoid anyone carrying emotional baggage from a never-ending relationship. CANCER (June 21-July 22): True love comes only when it is unconditional and with no stipulations or promises. It is what it is and what makes it so great is that you both enjoy being together more than anything else in the world. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t
let someone’s charm fool you into thinking that if you give as much as you can, you will get the same in return. Not everyone is as generous as you and, if you don’t protect what you have worked to acquire, it could be in jeopardy. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Mix and mingle and find out what’s available. Love is in the stars -- all you need to do is be a participant. Look for the qualities you find most desirable, like honesty, integrity and, of course, a wellbalanced bank account.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You may be flying high when it comes to emotional encounters but, before you jump on a magic carpet ride, make sure it is going to land on solid ground. Ask the right questions before taking off. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’ll be drawn to someone who fills your dreams, hopes and wishes for the future. Enjoy the ride but make sure you do your part or, when things start to slow down, you will wake up to uncertainty and a desire for something better.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Your emotions may lead you in the wrong direction romantically. Don’t fall for someone you work with or for. It may lead to a compromising position, let alone unemployment. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Put your heart on the line. Don’t be afraid to spell out what you want and what you expect in return. Once you have determined what works for both you and the person you want to be with, the rest will be easy.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Before you give your heart to someone who doesn’t deserve you, think about past relationships that didn’t turn out so well. Spare yourself the anguish of dealing with someone who doesn’t measure up or have much to offer you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Believe in who you are and what you have to offer and you will attract someone as gifted and giving as you are. Use your head, not your heart, to deduce whether someone is being legitimate with you or not.
