A model for a new East High
Now that the future of East High School lies partially in the hands of the University of Rochester’s Warner School, a suggestion to position the school for success is to reorganize it into a K-12 community school serving the eastside neighborhoods. There are several reasons why a community school-based model is worthy of consideration: 1) Educational research indicates that a school with a community-based culture can connect to the local neighborhoods and improve community ownership. When ownership increases, so does student attendance, and eventually academic achievement. 2) Having 500 high school, 500 middle school, and 500 elementary school students would be more manageable than 1,500 high school students embroiled in cross-city rivalries. A K-12 setting would also enhance long-term parental connection throughout their child’s elementary and secondary school years. 3) The school’s Teaching and Learning Institute would benefit by having younger students in the building so that high school students could learn to teach and read to them. Such a situation would enrich a college partnership in developing future teachers for the district. One thing is for certain: finding solutions to the present dilemma at East High School will require an imaginative mindset – both within the local community and from outside. The combined efforts of all those interested in the future of East High School and its students will assuredly result in an organization that puts
community ownership at the top of the priority list.
When dorks grow up
The fees for parking at the University of Rochester Medical Center are outrageous and way out of line. The University of Rochester, which the URMC is a part of, has nearly $2 billion in its endowments. That’s “billion” with a “B.” Charging outrageous fees for parking adds to the burden of the poor and middle class. It is just one more thing to worry about when you have a member of your family as a patient at URMC. The high costs of medical care are enough of a shock – and then add on the daily costs of parking. Perhaps the next time a multi-millionaire wishes to give a substantial amount of money to the URMC, they should direct the money to subsidize the parking fees. Or better yet, direct some of the $2 billion in the endowments to finance the parking garage. As a side note: parking at Unity Hospital is free.
Kimberly and Beck are dorks – and I use “dork” as a term of endearment. A cousin of “nerd” and “geek,” “dork” carries with it an understood sweetness and innocent aloofness. Dorks are harmless and many times fun, but still not cool enough to hang with the A crowd. Sometimes this is of their own design; more often than not, they’ve been ostracized. I was something of a dork during my formative years, and I still remember episodes of contempt or scorn. They hurt, yes. But they shaped me for the better. When I look at that publicity photo of Kimberly and Beck, that’s the one thing that comes to mind: they’re dorks-with-acapital-D. I can’t help but look in their faces and see dorkier teenaged versions of themselves. I’d bet that they’ve felt the sting of being left out – that on more than one occasion they were ridiculed by those higher up on the social food chain. So I can’t wrap my head around their mean-spiritedness, the vitriol with which they attack people that they perceive as being “below” them. There were a few times, after I found my social niche, that I attempted to turn that scorn around on to people that I perceived to be below me on the social ladder. As an adult, I look back on those times with shame, regret, and humility. I can’t imagine adults not feeling a twinge of disgrace after publicly mocking someone the way that that these two did. I realize that this is their schtick; they’re crass and “edgy.” Controversy brings in listeners. But even if it is an act – “Hey, c’mon, it’s just a joke” – is this how you want to be entertained? This point-and-laugh mentality? This lowest common denominator tripe at the expense of an alreadymarginalized swath of society? Let’s not be so lazy with our humor. Let’s not go for the kneejerk bullying-for-a-laugh. Even if you disagree with the issue at hand, you can still make your case without ridicule. Come on, Rochester. Even if it’s “just a joke,” we’re better than this. Even – and especially – the dorks.

Do we need another theater?
It is proposed that a quartermillion dollars or more be devoted to a study about the need for a downtown performing arts venue. Maybe it is difficult to find places on the calendar when the Eastman Theatre is available for booking. However, there is a vast history of this stage presenting plays, musicals, operas, and special productions. It should also be recognized that except for blockbuster shows, particularly those with special effects, touring theater no longer exists. As demonstrated especially by the Rochester Jazz Festival, the city and surrounding towns have a great number of spaces for music, drama, dance, recitals, and productions. Except perhaps for yet another “Phantom” tour, has any producer gone on record that Rochester is bypassed because there is no venue? MARTIN FASS

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
The urban balancing act: residents vs. developers For many of us, Rochester’s neighborhoods – their character, their collection of old houses, their lawns and trees and sidewalks, their small commercial areas – are a big reason we decided to live in the city. And city residents have been fiercely protective of their neighborhoods, fighting for zoning changes and code enforcement, for police presence, for architectural preservation. City residents and their neighborhood groups create parks and community gardens, raise money to care for old trees and plant new ones, promote public art, hold block parties and pancake breakfasts and festivals, push for bike lanes and speed bumps and stop signs, and protest everything from street-light design to changes in library hours. In a very real sense, Rochester’s neighborhoods are a key attribute of the city as a whole. The health of the city and the county are closely linked to the health of city neighborhoods. And since that health is often reliant on the activism of neighborhood residents, it’s worth paying attention when neighborhood residents get upset about something. And right now, residents of several neighborhoods are upset. Really upset. In Charlotte, the concern is a plan to build a hotel, condos, townhouses, and space for commercial uses and offices. Charlotte residents are questioning the size of the project, which they worry will change the character of their neighborhood. In the Mt. Hope-Elmwood area, the concern is the Psychiatric Center’s plan to create a regional treatment center for “forensic adults”: people with mental illness who, in the state’s words, have been “involved in the justice system.” In the Highland Park neighborhood, it’s an expansion plan by UR Med Center affiliate Highland Hospital. The hospital, which is surrounded by a residential area, wants to build an addition on what is currently a hospital parking lot. And it has bought a nearby house to use as office space. Cities are living things, and they change. And the residents of a neighborhood can’t have veto power over change. They’re part of the larger city, and elected officials are responsible for the health of the entire city. But residents have to be listened to – and sometimes developers and important institutions have to be told “no.” These three neighborhood-focused conflicts pose particularly difficult dilemmas. The need for forensic treatment facilities is real, but few people will welcome one in their neighborhood. The Psych Center neighbors’ concerns are understandable.
The residents of a neighborhood can’t have veto power over change. But sometimes developers and institutions have to be told ‘no.’” Hospitals need space, and Highland was built at a time when Rochester had several small hospitals – virtually neighborhood hospitals – and nobody could foresee the changes ahead in medicine. The Med Center’s growth is important, and it can be good for Rochester. It can create jobs. But any further expansion at Highland will have a serious impact on its neighbors. And in Charlotte: We’ve known for years that Rochester doesn’t capitalize enough on its waterfront areas. But Charlotte residents have worked hard to keep their community healthy. It is Charlotte residents, in fact, who have led the fight for a stronger focus on the river and lakefront. And frankly, I worry that developers and city officials are more than a little naïve about the potential for things like condos and a hotel in Charlotte. Sometimes in situations like these three, officials can find a compromise that leaves everybody reasonably happy. Often they can’t, though, and I’m not sure how optimistic residents can be in these cases. I want more development. And I want the City of Rochester to stop shrinking. To grow, though, we need to attract new residents, not drive people away. The problems of the city school district are a tough enough obstacle; the city needs to do all it can to foster the health of its neighborhoods. During her campaign, Mayor Lovely Warren promised to focus strongly on city neighborhoods. In three neighborhoods right now, she has a chance to ensure that residents are a key part of that focus. rochestercitynewspaper.com

Rochester named a Manufacturing Community
The New York Finger Lakes region, including the City of Rochester, has been designated a Manufacturing Community by the US Department of Commerce. The designation gives selected communities preferential consideration for up to $1.3 billion in federal funding. The Obama initiative targets communities still struggling to recover from the recession.
Eastman House, grounds to be evaluated
The George Eastman House and grounds will undergo a historic site condition survey by local firm Bero Architecture. According to a press release, Bero will assess the current state of the house and garden structures, and prioritize areas that need restoration and/or repair. The results will be used to support fund-raising efforts, the release says.
Future of Psychiatric Center is unclear It looks like the state is easing up on its plans for the Rochester Psychiatric Center. The state had intended to convert the center into a regional facility that would serve
only patients who’ve had contact with the criminal justice system. But concerns raised by neighbors, coupled with the significant investment happening in the area have the state rethinking its plans.
LPGA will leave Rochester

Medley owner is suing everybody
Bersin Properties, owner of Irondequoit’s Medley Centre, is suing the County of Monroe Industrial Development Agency, Monroe County, the Town of Irondequoit, and the East Irondequoit school district. Bersin argues that the penalties imposed on the company for missing investment milestones on the Medley project are not enforceable. Bersin principal Scott Congel agreed to the milestones and the penalties when he signed a tax agreement for the project in 2009.
Scott Fearing, executive director of the Gay Alliance of the Genesee Valley, wants to create a onestop-shop for the region’s LGBTQ communities. FILE PHOTO
The Gay Alliance of the Genesee Valley is planning to move out of its headquarters on the fifth floor of the Auditorium Theatre and into a transitional space that will give the organization a higher profile and the momentum to kick off a larger project, says Scott Fearing, the alliance’s executive director. That project could include providing offices for various LGBTQ organizations, including a new permanent home for the Gay Alliance, he says, as well as a community center. The group’s current headquarters is cramped, he says, and nearly invisible to the community. “It’s just not accessible,” Fearing says. He says his goal is to create a one-stop-shop for the LGBTQ communities. The Gay Alliance of the Genesee Valley is an LGBTQ advocacy organization serving Monroe and surrounding counties. In addition to its administrative offices, the Gay Alliance used to have a community room in the Auditorium Theatre, on the first floor. But the room didn’t get a lot of use, Fearing
says, so it closed last fall. He says he’s embarrassed that the Gay Alliance doesn’t have a community center to serve the LGBTQ population. “We’ve got one of the oldest organizations in the country,” Fearing says. “We have a really long history of doing amazing work in this town, and the community doesn’t have a center to turn to or to find themselves.” Looking farther down the road, Fearing says he’d love for the Gay Alliance to help bring LGBTQspecific senior housing to Rochester. Nationwide, housing for LGBTQ seniors is becoming a trend. Minneapolis, Philadelphia, and San Francisco are among the cities with senior LGBTQ housing projects. Research shows that many LGBTQ individuals go back into the closet when they move into senior housing, Fearing says. It’s not just about discrimination, he says, but also about finding a place where they can be themselves. “The person may not know if they really can talk honestly about their life,” Fearing says.

Monroe County Family Court saw a 6 percent increase in annual petition filings from 2003 to 2013. In 2003, 24,410 petitions were filed with the court, according to information from the statewide Universal Case Management System. Last year’s petitions totaled 25,962.

Adding to the family Family courts across New York, dealing with a steady rise in caseloads, should soon get some help. When New York lawmakers passed the 2014-15 state budget, they included $5 million to fund 20 new Family Court judges. But that’s only part of what the Legislature needs to do. It also needs to pass legislation to create the positions, and then Governor Andrew Cuomo must sign the bill into law. The Senate and the Assembly are currently negotiating the necessary legislation, says Assembly member Harry Bronson. But they need to act fast. The new judges are supposed to take office in January 2015, which means that upstate voters will elect the judges this November. (The New York City judges will be appointed.) Petitioning for political party ballot lines has already begun. It ends on July 10. New York State Bar Association President Dave Schraver sent a letter to legislators, urging them to move quickly. “With each passing day, there is less time for qualified candidates to obtain a position on the ballot,” said Schraver, an attorney in Nixon Peabody’s Rochester office.
Until Assembly and Senate leaders pass the necessary legislation, it’s uncertain which counties will get additional judges. But Monday, the Assembly passed a bill introduced by Helene Weinstein, chair of the chamber’s Judiciary Committee. The legislation would give Monroe County one new Family Court judge. Albany, Broome, Chautauqua, Erie, Nassau, Oneida, Oswego, Schenectady, Suffolk, and Westchester counties would also get one each. Nine of the new judges would go to New York City. Weinstein’s bill, however, does not have a match in the Senate. Other legislators have introduced county-specific bills, which predate the 2014-15 budget. For example, Bronson and State Senator Joe Robach sponsor a bill that would increase the number of Monroe County Family Court judges from six to eight. Monroe County Family Court saw a 6 percent increase in annual petition filings from 2003 to 2013. In 2003, 24,410 petitions were filed with the court, according to information from the statewide Universal Case Management System. Last year’s petitions totaled 25,962.

But the last time the Monroe County Family Court received an additional judge was in 2000. Schraver says the volume of Family Court caseloads leads to delays. The courts handle a broad range of matters, such as domestic violence, child custody, child abuse and neglect, juvenile delinquency, and adoptions.

Recently, and quietly, the State Board of Elections declared its yearly overall contribution limits unenforceable. But limits on contributions to individual candidates remain in place, according to an Associated Press article. Prior to the decision, a person or limited liability corporation could only donate a maximum of $150,000 to a combination of candidates, political parties, and independent groups. The Board of Elections’ decision wipes out that cap. Donors can now give the maximum donation to as many candidates and party committees as they want, and then give more still to independent groups or political party housekeeping accounts without fear of running into a cap on their overall political spending. The AP story says that the board members took the action in response to a Supreme Court decision and another decision in a Manhattan-based federal court. In April, the Supreme Court ruled that aggregate caps on political contributions violated the First Amendment. (SCOTUSblog has a page devoted to the case, McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission.) The board’s decision and the Supreme Court ruling it’s based on could result in a new flood of spending in this year’s state elections.

Schools modernization project is in trouble Since work began in 2006, the Rochester school district’s $1.2 billion project to overhaul and modernize its buildings has been scaled up and whittled down. It’s gone through four superintendents and three mayors. Design plans have been started, stopped, changed, and started again. Undoubtedly the biggest challenge in a construction project this size is keeping it from becoming silage for political and financial mayhem. Rochester may not have succeeded in that goal. It came out last week that there’s an FBI investigation into the project’s $325 million first phase, and there are growing differences of opinion about whether the second phase should be postponed as a result. A delay would have multiple ramifications, but it’s fair to say that most of the misfortune would be borne by the people who the project is supposed to help: city students and their families. “It took seven years and four superintendents to get the first phase going,” says Rochester schools Superintendent Bolgen Vargas. “I’m hoping this doesn’t take another seven years.” State legislation authorizing the project’s second phase has been drafted, but not submitted. And with only days left in the current legislative session, time is running out. Indications that the project was in trouble surfaced shortly after Mayor Lovely Warren took office earlier this year. Internal audits of the project’s first phase raised serious questions about costs and supervision. Warren and other city officials charged the Rochester Joint Schools Construction Board with shoddy oversight. And City Council President Loretta Scott asked the State Comptroller’s Office to investigate whether the project was meeting compliance standards for hiring women and minority contractors. The comptroller’s office did not pursue the matter, and it’s not clear what exactly the FBI is investigating.
School board President Van White says it would be prudent to temporarily put the legislation for phase two of the project on hold. (The school board has no involvement with the schools modernization project.) “We should at least know what’s gone wrong so we don’t repeat those mistakes,” he says. But Vargas says a delay would cause serious problems for the district. “I can’t be left in limbo here,” he says. “I do respect the concerns that others may have, but we need to move forward for the sake of our students, our families, and this city.” According to the district’s website, there are nine city schools in the project’s first phase that are in various stages of construction. Some, such as School 58 and School 28, are expanding with major additions. Construction on others such as School 50 is complete. And there are more than 20 schools slated for major renovations in the second phase of the project. Some schools will straddle multiple stages of construction before all of the work is completed. The entire project consists of four phases. Delaying the second phase would undoubtedly drive costs up; costs have increased dramatically since the project began. Delaying

would also open the door to yet more costly design changes. For example, School 16, while not originally part of phase two, was added after aggressive lobbying by residents. And a delay would create a logistical nightmare for district administrators, parents, and students since many students are attending school in alternative locations while their home schools are being renovated. But more than anything else, Vargas says, the modernization program is critical to keeping students and families in the city by providing schools that are modern, clean, and designed to support math, science, music, art, and sports. Since the district has become the principal source of meals for many city students, modernizing kitchens and food preparation areas is long overdue, he says.

Vargas wants All City High extended Rochester schools Superintendent Bolgen Vargas says he wants to continue offering All City High as an alternative for students who need it. The school primarily serves overage students who don’t have enough credits to graduate. “What do you do with students who are entering ninth grade when they are 15, 16, 17, and 18, and sometimes older?” Vargas says. “These are often students who are reading at a much lower level. This is the only district that I know of that doesn’t 6 CITY

have some kind of non-traditional school for these kids.” Technically, All City is not a school; it’s a program that Vargas created in 2010 as a way of re-engaging students enrolled in schools that were being phased out: Edison, Franklin, and Jefferson. Vargas says that as those schools were closing, many of the students were either drifting or dropping out. “Those students were slowly losing all of their services,” he says. “They were losing
administrative help, losing counselors, and losing supportive teachers.” Vargas says the number of pupils enrolled at All City turned out to be much lower than originally anticipated — about 800 students. Many of the students who district officials thought would go to All City turned out to be “phantom” pupils. Many were not attending school in Rochester anymore. Some weren’t even living in New York, but their home schools had lost track of them. Vargas says that 351 All City students have graduated, and that the program, which
And even Vargas’s strategy to improve student achievement through expanded learning would be undermined with another delay, he says. Many students are now in school for longer hours, and will attend school during the summer months. “I’ve insisted that we have air conditioning in those buildings because our kids need it during the summer months,” he says. Most city schools do not have air conditioning. Vargas says that one of his main goals as superintendent is to increase stability in the district. The district’s parents have had to cope with a school environment that has been in a state of constant flux for years, he says. “I have to give our students more stability,” he says. “You do that through building renovations that protect the interests of our students.”
was supposed to be temporary, works. But with changes imminent at East High and several other schools, he says, the district continues to need an alternative school. “We still have so many kids that are overage and under-credited,” he says. Some principals are not pleased with the way All City operates. Students who attend All City are technically still enrolled in their home schools. Their success or failure reflects on their home schools’ records even though they do not receive instruction there. The school board would have to approve any plan for All City to continue to operate. Board President Van White says he wants to see more data showing the effectiveness of the program.

Like family [ CHOW HOUND ] BY KATIE LIBBY
The enthusiasm that Tom Joy has for his new business is contagious. Walking through the door of Park Ave Paninoteca, my friend and I were greeted like family — which makes sense because if you wander in on any given day, you’ll see Joy’s brother, sister, wife, or another member of the family helping out. Joy’s father-in-law, Stefano Accordo, is a co-owner of the business, and the menu is sprinkled with his family recipes he brought with him when he moved to the U.S. from Sicily. Joy’s vision is a classic Italian deli with old family recipes from his father-in-law with some new twists. It's seen through the variety of paninis that Joy has created. This is the first venture into the restaurant business for Joy and Accordo — Accordo still works at Kodak, and Joy was a bartender for years. The seating area is tiny — only three hightop tables are available inside — however outdoor seating is available. The space itself is small, with a large deli case in the back and a giant chalkboard menu. A cooler contains a varied selection of San Pellegrino and sodas. We decided to start with one of the paninis. I’m a fan of olive tapenade, so my friend and I ordered the Roma Panini ($8.25) which also
included porchetta, salami, roasted red peppers, arugula, olive oil, and cacio di roma cheese. Paninis can often be hit or miss. The bread can sometimes be too saturated with butter or oil and become soggy, or it can be warmed just enough to get the grill marks on it, but you feel like you’re eating a half-grilled sandwich. Thankfully, that was not my experience at Park Ave Paninoteca. The bread was crisp on the outside, not greasy at all, and nice and chewy on the inside. Joy said his favorite panini is the The Sicilian ($8.75), a savory combination of marinated eggplant, mushrooms, artichokes, salami, sundried tomatoes, provolone cheese, and spicy olive oil. We also tried the Arancini ball ($2.50), a deep-fried rice ball with cheese and peas in the middle. The ball was served with the restaurant’s homemade sauce on the side — truly the star of the show as my friend commented she would be content just eating the sauce with a spoon. The sauce is also used to make the Pasta al Forno ($6). The Beef Braciole ($8) — thinly-sliced, grilled beef rolled around mozzarella and covered in bread crumbs — was served on a skewer and came with two sides. We chose the sautéed rappi and the caponata. Rappi is a dish made with rapini (or broccoli rabe) and seasoned
with garlic, olive oil, and red pepper. Rapini has somewhat of a bitter taste to it but the seasoning cut the bitterness a bit. For someone that is not a huge eggplant fan, I was pleasantly surprised to enjoy the caponata, a cold salad dish featuring diced eggplant, olives, onions, and herbs. Joy explained that menu items like the caponata, rappi and Beef Braciole are older Sicilian recipes that may be unique to find in Rochester. I recommend checking back to see what other tasty imports Joy and Accordo put on the menu. The Park Ave Paninoteca is located at 266 Park Avenue and is open Monday through Saturday, 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Food prices range from $1.75 to $9. For more information, Park Ave Paninoteca can be reached at 270-5601 and online at Facebook.com/PaninotecaRochester.

The band’s sound can range from faithful folk to twangy country to 70’s Southern rock ‘n’ roll — however, the band itself asserts that its music has “lovingly” been referred to as being “Rocky Mountain Whoop-ass.” Blitzen Trapper recently released its seventh LP, simply titled "VII."

Richard Buckner SUNDAY, JUNE 8 BUG JAR, 219 MONROE AVENUE 8:30 P.M. | $8-$14 | BUGJAR.COM; RICHEARDBUCKNER.COM [ SINGER-SONGWRITER ] Since 1994, Richard Buckner has remained a mysterious focal point of altcountry and avant-folk. Rooted in traditions like Townes Van Zandt, he somehow manages to veil his music with expansive, tranquil arrangements. His lyrics and playing style paint images that float in and out like mist hung over morning forest floors. There is a precise sensitivity to his vocals, both raw and refined, with a bared vulnerability that is shown as his voice drifts just high enough to touch a breath, before coming back down to some foreboding narrative. — BY ERIC WITKOWSKI
Rob & Gary Acoustic.
Like so many bands today, Silver Creek Attractions’ latest CD is an EP — direct and to the point, no fat, no fluff; just a five song punch in the gut. After one spin you’ll already have a pretty clear idea of what this young Rochester quartet is capable of. There are plenty of minor-keyed push and pull and intensity like the opening track “Leave Me Hollow” which cruises with a lyrically seasoned introspection that goes beyond the just-out-of-high school-band’s collective ages. “Fading” bristles just below its duplicitous surface before busting free of its dynamic restraints. “Third From The Sun” is an apocalyptic adventure swirling in the ether with a pop flourish. The Band takes it to the edge with every cut without going over. But over and above the musicianship and talent, it just sounds f***ing cool. Wanna hear more? Put this down and pick up Silver Creek Attractions. — BY FRANK DE BLASE
Gianni Gagliardi “Nomadic Nature” BROOKLYN JAZZ UNDERGROUND giannigagliardi.com
Gianni Gagliardi’s “Nomadic Nature” begins with a crash of thunder followed by the most eerie, upper-register saxophone wail. The wail may at first sound like the squeaks beginner players produce when they first navigate the instrument, but in Gagliardi’s oeuvre, it is completely under control and adds significantly to the language of the instrument. In fact, along with his rich vocabulary of more traditional tenor tone, the ghostly wail is a leitmotif of sorts, an otherworldly voice that comes and goes throughout the album. Born in Barcelona, Spain, Gagliardi is now a rising star on the Brooklyn jazz scene. Gagliardi’s unique approach to the sax is matched by Gilad Hekselman’s prowess on guitar. Every time Hekselman solos over Gagliardi’s unpredictable changes, gorgeous lines flow from his fingers. Some of the best moments come when the two interweave their solos as they do on “Macanudo Man.” Gagliardi’s other three band-mates — Luke Marantz, piano; Alexis Guadrado, bass; and Mark Ferber, drums — are also well chosen. With excellent arrangements on a variety of challenging compositions, all of which were written by Gagliardi. “Nomadic Nature” is a most impressive debut. — BY RON NETSKY

The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra concluded its 2013-14 season last weekend with a performance of Gustav Holst's "The Planets." PHOTO PROVIDED
On your imaginary forces work [ REVIEW ] BY DAVID RAYMOND
In its opening speech, the Chorus in Shakespeare’s “Henry V” exhorts the audience to use its imagination to recreate the numerous English and French settings of the play — hence the quote that gives this review its title. For its concluding concert of the 2013-14 season, performed Thursday, May 29, and Saturday, May 31, the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra highlighted imaginative musical canvases by two British composers, with a British conductor (Michael Francis) presiding, and a British actor (Malcolm Ingram) lending his Shakespearean expertise. The “Suite from Henry V” adds Shakespeare’s words to musical highlights from William Walton’s splendid score for the titular 1944 Laurence Olivier film. Though the words and music are equally colorful, this large-scale piece — cobbled together by British composer and author Christopher Palmer — came off as less than the sum of its parts. Malcolm Ingram’s reading of most of the famous bits for Henry and Falstaff was compelling enough, but without Shakespeare’s dramatic context, they don’t quite land. Walton’s music, however, does just fine on its own. He found just the right brassy, regal swagger for Henry’s music. But the most memorable portions of this score are 12 CITY JUNE 4-10, 2014
two brief, quiet sections scored for strings alone: “”The Death of Falstaff” and “Touch her Soft Lips and Part.” These were delicately paced by Michael Francis and exquisitely played by the RPO strings, but the full orchestra also gave Walton’s festive moments the snazziness they require — the “Agincourt Song” pealing out in the brass near the end of the work almost made me feel British. “The Planets” is so familiar now, and has been pilfered by other composers so often since its premiere in 1920 (it was written between 1914 and 1916), that it can be difficult to realize how original a work it is. Gustav Holst’s “imaginary forces” were strong here: he translated the astrological qualities of the then-known seven planets into innovative music, almost singlehandedly creating the “outer space” sound world — and making many later movie soundtrack scores possible, from Vaughan Williams to John Williams. Familiar it is, but if performed with energy, virtuosity, and a sense of adventure, “The Planets” can still be thrilling. And last Thursday night’s RPO performance was indeed pretty thrilling. Michael Francis brought out every one of the myriad moods and orchestral colors in this suite, and had some interesting interpretive ideas of his own, starting with a ferocious “Mars, The Bringer of War.” This was taken at a tremendous clip — arguably too fast, though
Holst’s tempo marking is a simple “Allegro”. (Holst himself conducted a recording of “Mars” at nearly as fast a pace, but probably to fit the piece on 78 rpm record sides.) The music seemed like a baleful, impersonal machine with a life of its own, just a step or two away from running amok. This may not have been exactly what the composer had in mind, but it was definitely exciting. The orchestra sounded sensational at each planetary stop: whether in the rapid-fire gossamer woodwind writing of “Mercury” (definitely a “winged messenger” in this performance), the hearty string and brass writing of the “great tune” in “Jupiter,” or the rackety, deliberately noisy scoring of “Uranus” — which was as intriguingly unsettling and impersonal as “Mars.” As befits his subject, Holst seldom goes for the warm-and-fuzzy in this work. The conclusion of “The Planets,” “Neptune,” features the most famous of Holst’s much-copied musical effects: a small women’s chorus sings two chords over and over, gradually fading away to nothing. Concentus Women’s Chorus (led by Gwendolyn Gassler) had this deceptively simple assignment, and gave those chords a shivery, glassy sound that I think would have delighted the composer. Performances like this RPO presentation of “The Planets” make you realize why warhorses become warhorses — and why warhorses keep getting performed.

ROCK | MODERN BASEBALL
Modern Baseball’s music recalls sounds from the early years of indie rock. The Philadelphia quartet has drawn comparisons to cult-favorite American Football — and Modern Baseball admits the band inspired its name — and it doesn’t take more than a few songs to hear why. Its debut album “Sports” was well-reviewed, and its latest release, “You’re Gonna Miss It All,” has been doing even better, because of lyrics that are easy to relate to and atmospheric acoustic guitar work. Many of the album’s lyrics relate to the title, and themes of regret and longing are present throughout — “I hate worrying about the future as all my current problems are bases around the past” is just one example — but despite the not-always-cheery content, the music’s still effortless to rock out to. Modern Baseball plays with Tiny Moving Parts, The Hotelier, Sorority Noise, and California Cousins on Tuesday, June 10, at Montage Music Hall, 50 Chestnut Street. 6 p.m. $12-14.

When we think of large, multi-octave voices, singers like Mariah Carey and the late Minnie Riperton come immediately to mind. But for those who are familiar with her singing, Rachelle Ferrell is a charter member of that exclusive club. After graduating from Berklee College of Music, Ferrell sang back up for Lou Rawls, Patti LaBelle, and Vanessa Williams. When she stepped into the spotlight herself, she became an international sensation. So emotional and expressive is her delivery, she can even steal the show from a great performer like George Benson.

Titus Andronicus — the Shakespearean play — is amongst the author’s most violent and least respected works, and thus a fitting name for a New Jersey-based punk band. Titus Andronicus — band, not bard — indeed can be violent at times both in instrumentation, as well as within honest lyrics cynically spit out in an airing of latest grievances. The respect factor is where things deviate. With three critically adored records and a well-earned reputation for entertainingly raucous live shows, the band is proud to wear its home state’s influences on their sleeves sporting Springsteen-esque rhythms and rollicking anthems. Best experienced within tight confines for an intimate and enveloping gathering, Rochester and the Bug Jar seem a perfect match. Titus Andronicus plays with Baked and Taking Meds on Friday, June 6, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 9 p.m. $10-$14. Bugjar.com; titusandronicus.net. — BY DAVE LABARGE

“The Flying Lesson,” by Joy Adams, is part of “Mad Sally with Things on Strings,” currently on view at Axom Gallery. PHOTO PROVIDED
We’re all mad, here “Mad Sally with Things on Strings” by Joy Adams THROUGH JUNE 28 AXOM GALLERY, 176 ANDERSON AVENUE, FLOOR 2 WEDNESDAY-SATURDAY, 12 P.M.-5 P.M. | 232-6030 X23; AXOMGALLERY.COM [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY
Many people who are labeled “eccentric” are simply living their lives defiantly unencumbered by meaningless norms — and in doing so, may find more soulfulfilling ways of moving through this strange trip. And these types can teach the rest of us a thing or two. The current exhibit at Axom Gallery showcases the engaging work of Joy Adams, who uses her remarkable artistic talent to tell the story of Mad Sally, and to peer at what’s found at the bottom of the garden. Though Adams serves as the model for her own work, the paintings aren’t really of her. A statement provided by the gallery informs viewers that Adams’ recurrent, madcap character, “Sally,” is partly autobiographical, “representing a composite of English characters from Adams’ childhood during WWII.” 16 CITY JUNE 4-10, 2014
Adams grew up outside of London with working class people — “bawdy, blowzy and laughing together in the face of adversity and hardship.” According to the statement, the depictions of Sally are “a theatrical narrative of Adam’s experiential observations.” The British-born artist had an early career as a Vaudeville performer with her brother, was a war bride who emigrated to the United States, took up painting in her 30’s, studied at SUNY Brockport, taught at Ithaca College, and is now retired, living and working in a renovated barn in Trumansburg. The pieces included in this show were created between 2003 and 2013, and many have been exhibited before in various venues, including at the Memorial Art Gallery’s inaugural Biennial Exhibition in 2004. Outside of the gallery space, we’re introduced to Adams’ work with the large painting, “Mad Sally Showing Me Her Big Pink Dress,” in which the childlike character is rendered mid-curtsey, also wearing black patent leather Mary Janes and her nearly-ever-present leather aviator cap. Staged within a spotlight in the inky darkness, Sally and a belland-bow-adorned pug wear the same expectant expression.
Nearby, two smaller paintings, “Tumbler” 1 and 2, are dark dreams of naked, broken dolls positioned awkwardly. Two formal-looking portraits of pups are also included right at the entrance of the gallery, including “Best Mac Daddy Vibes” featuring a prissy looking dog laying on his back, the red bow in his hair juxtaposing hilariously with its erection and lolling tongue. Inside the gallery space, “The Night Garden” depicts the complex, savage, utterly lovely world underfoot. The eyes are led around the picture through repetition of form — spiny caterpillars and the jagged leaves of thistle weed, fluttering petals mirroring moth wings, undulating worms and curling tendrils of grass. From the dark, bits of life wend toward the light; would-be prey navigate safely into shadow. A series of mammoth paintings follow, showcasing a subject not usually paid tribute to in such large canvases, which were traditionally reserved for royalty and other dignitaries. Here, we peek into a little old lady’s rich inner world, where memory and dream collide and form flowing vistas rife with private symbolism. In “A Long Wait,” Sally sits atop a brown paper package as if incubating a great egg. She’s holding a book and a sleeping pup in her lap, and wearing a far-inward expression. Bright shoelaces and bursts of violet blooms break up the field of faded colors, and Sally is thistle-haired herself, her witchy look underscored by a subtle broom set down in the weeds. A great span of time is represented in this pastoral landscape under an industrial sky — a factory brews its fumes in the distance, a dilapidated house leans in the middle ground. Everything about these works is intimate, our view zeroed in on emotional experience and a quirky, singular pathway. Unframed canvases leave the raw edges visible, with daubs of paint and notes scrawled on them. In the show’s namesake work, “Mad Sally with Things on Strings,” our heroine is simultaneously robust and fragile. Her monumental stature and sturdy feet are planted on the ground, her unabashedly soft flesh and veined legs bare. A slight smirk twists her gentle face, and Sally dominates well into an overcast sky. The strings are rings on Sally’s fingers, making her a sort of grandma puppet-master pulling the dewy spider threads which tether winged misfit toys, a goat, an insect, and an infant. continues on page 24

Comedy FILM | “JUST GENDER” DOCUMENTARY
In an effort to put pins in complicated reality, humans have learned to categorize everything, and we tend to understand things through opposites. But cultural constructs, such as gender, create false dichotomies which are ultimately exclusory. Complication resists our reins when people’s physical realities don’t match their inner experiences or inclinations. In light of the recent public debates about the City of Rochester adding transgender health benefits for employees and their families in the city medical plan, the Gay Alliance and Trans* Alliance of Greater Rochester invite the community to attend a screening of the documentary film “Just Gender.” This film seeks to put a human face on the spectrum of individuals within the transgender community, and to challenge viewers to question their notions of what it means to be male or female. The film, which is narrated by Tony and Emmy awardwinner Bebe Neuwirth, describes the broad range of gender expression within the transgender continuum, and the struggles and challenges experienced by transgender individuals. The screening will take place on Thursday, June 5, at The Little Theatre (240 East Ave.) at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 or $5 for students/low income.

SPECIAL EVENT | HUNTER DERBY
Held in the tradition of a vintage derby, the Genesee Country Village & Museum’s Hunter Derby gives horse and rider the same challenges as what might be found in the field on a traditional hunting trip. Courses are built to imitate hedges, banks, ditches, and gates. The museum’s Great Meadow will be transformed for the National and International Derbies. The GCV&M Derby is only one of two stand-alone derbies in the East that incorporates a meadow course — the other is The Chicago Hunter Derby.

A dark Texas tale “Cold in July”
(R), DIRECTED BY JIM MICKLE NOW PLAYING AT THE LITTLE [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA
Film noir has ascended from its murky origins in the dark past back in the 1940’s to high cinema fashion in our time, when any crime story of any kind earns the trendy term. Detective films, gangster movies, horror flicks, everything but romantic comedies, no matter their style or content, huddle under the great critical umbrella of noir. The term is so common that in fiction it separates into French

noir (of course), Norwegian noir, Swedish noir, Irish noir, and so on ad infinitum. “Cold in July” represents yet another version of the form, which it may actually deserve: Texas noir, a film inspired by Cormac McCarthy’s dark vision. It resembles “No Country for Old Men,” “The Counselor,” even “Killer Joe” in its location, its people, its violence, its pervasive sense of criminality, its bleak view of life. Because of its geographical location, like others in the group it also retains a strong connection to the Western. The movie begins with a single act of violence, then proceeds ineluctably down a strange twisting path of tension and fear, finally ending in a bloodbath. Like many classic thrillers, it places its protagonist, almost by mere chance, in a dark, scary mystery that ultimately instructs him in the ways of a world he’d never known before, lifting the cover off life to give him a look inside at the real workings of the universe. Set in East Texas in 1989, the movie

Remember your Dad on Father’s Day Sunday, June 15th
opens with Ann Dane (Vinessa Shaw) waking her husband Richard (Michael C. Hall) to tell him she hears a noise. He shakily loads a revolver and creeps downstairs to find an intruder with a large flashlight examining his living room. He challenges the man, who turns around, shining that bright light in his eyes, which somehow forces the frightened Richard to shoot him. From that moment Richard’s life changes
dramatically; shaken and sickened by his act, he rejects the congratulations of acquaintances, who cannot understand his feelings of guilt and sorrow. The detective lieutenant, Ray Price (Nick Damici), reassures him that the dead man was a known felon with a long record, which provides him little comfort. He encounters the man’s father, Russel (Sam Shepard), also a felon, who utters veiled threats about Richard’s own little boy, plunging him into a panic. Just when the plot appears to settle into a familiar thriller pattern, with the innocent protagonist fighting off the attacks of a vengeful criminal, it shifts into another gear, suggesting that a more complicated scheme lies beneath the primary situation. Richard discovers that the police follow a different agenda and that Russel amounts to more than he seems. When an old friend of Russel’s, a flamboyant cowboy private eye named (what else) Jim Bob (Don Johnson) enters the movie in a red Cadillac, the
Wicked games “Maleficent” (PG), DIRECTED BY ROBERT STROMBERG NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
three men embark on a quest to find the truth about the burglar, the police, and what appears to be an official cover-up of a more serious crime; in the process they unearth evidence about the Dixie Mafia, snuff films, and a painful truth about Russel and his son. As the plot grows darker and more complicated and the emotions move in unexpected directions, Richard changes in ways he never expected, committed to a new kind of vengeance for reasons far beyond his initial decision. In a sense he grows up, but because “Cold in July” shares common ground with both the thriller and the Western, his maturation occurs through violence, reflecting the manhood ritual that defines the trajectory of the Western. The three major actors create a strange trio of characters. A generally passive actor, Michael C. Hall reflects the transformations in his character mostly through silences and facial expressions, a difficult task for an actor without a great deal of presence. Lean, leathery, and laconic, the grizzled Sam Shepard looks rather like Clint Eastwood’s (slightly) younger brother, expressing some devastating emotional stress with grim understatement. Don Johnson, who’s not been around much lately, is simply terrific as Jim Bob, a vital, colorful contrast to the two morose men around him; he also appears to be enjoying the hell out of the movie and his part; he makes this tough, brutal little thriller more than worthwhile.
When it comes to all-time great movie entrances, you can’t do much better than the first appearance of the sorceress Maleficent in Walt Disney’s 1959 animated masterpiece, “Sleeping Beauty.” With a bolt of lightning, the witch appears, crashing a royal christening to deliver a promise of certain death to an infant, seemingly because the king and queen neglected to send her an invitation to the party. One of Disney’s most iconic villians, Maleficent is a figure of pure malevolence who seems to delight in her own wickedness. In Disney’s “Maleficent,” a revisionist fairy tale in the vein of Gregory Maguire’s “Wicked,” screenwriter Linda Woolverton and director Robert Stromberg recast the character as a wounded woman out for revenge against a patriarchal society that has wronged her. The film is an origin story, though it devotes the majority of its run time to retelling “Sleeping Beauty” from Maleficent’s point of view. As the film tells it, Maleficent was once a young, horned and winged orphan living in the peaceful kingdom of the fairies. One day, she meets, befriends, and eventually falls in love with Stefan, a human boy who

wanders into the realm from the nearby kingdom of men. He continues to make visits to her as they grow older, but he always leaves to return to the land of men. The human king covets the fairy realm, and on his deathbed vows that whoever can slay Maleficent (now played as an adult by Angelina Jolie), the realm’s protector, and win the kingdom in the name of men, will be his successor. Stefan (Sharlto Copley, in an oddly stiff performance) sets out to do just that, but finds he can’t bring himself to kill Maleficent. Instead, in a disturbing scene, Stefan drugs her, lies with her, and cuts off her wings while she sleeps, leaving Maleficent to wake up the next morning horrified to discover her body has been violated. It’s a thinly veiled rape metaphor, which is a rather questionable choice for what’s ostensibly a family film, but Stefan’s betrayal sets the stage for Maleficent to be reborn as the baby-cursing villain we know and love. But here, Maleficent continues to watch over Aurora (Elle Fanning) as she grows up under the care of the three “good” fairies (hideous, miniaturized, CGI versions of actresses Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple, and Lesley Manville), portrayed here as negligent caretakers who would have allowed the child to die if Maleficent wasn’t around to intervene. For years, Maleficent apparently has nothing better to do than skulk around the forest watching Aurora age, allowing the young girl to come to think of her as a fairy godmother. In theory, it makes sense to give Maleficent a backstory, fleshing out her character to give her motive, but there’s a reason the bad guys are always more fascinating characters than the heroes. Turning her into a spurned lover robs her of any mystique she once had, to say nothing of the fact that after “Oz: The Great and Powerful,” Disney is apparently operating under the assumption that the only possible explanation for why a powerful woman might turn evil is to get back at a boy. The source of Maleficent’s villainy didn’t need explanation, and by
rewriting her character to strip her of those villainous tendencies feels as though the filmmakers doubted audiences could root for a female antihero. The way she’s presented, it’s a stretch to even call her an antihero, and by the time she’s filmed astride her noble steed, rearing up against a golden sunset as she races to stop her own curse from being carried out, it’s pretty clear she’s a straight-up hero. Plus, she doesn’t even turn into an effin’ dragon! Becoming a dragon is Maleficent’s coolest power and she doesn’t even get to do it — instead her shape-shifting companion Diaval (Sam Riley) gets that ability. This is Stromberg’s first turn in the director’s chair after serving as production designer on films like “Alice In Wonderland” and “Avatar,” and as you might expect, he excels at the visuals, but seems lost in most other areas. His lack of directing skill is most egregious during the poorly staged final battle sequence. Thankfully, Angelina Jolie is perfectly cast. She looks fantastic in the part, and she clearly relishes playing devious, but she looks constrained much of the time. She only gets to cut loose during the christening, which is the film’s best scene and little surprise, it’s the one that’s lifted practically verbatim from the animated film. With her sweet nature and infectious smile, I had little trouble buying Fanning as a Disney princess, and her character’s relationship with Maleficent functions as a sweet, rather potent metaphor for adoptive motherhood. As Prince Phillip, Brenton Thwaites is given nothing to do whatsoever, though I did appreciate Woolverton’s addition of Phillip’s reluctance to kiss Aurora without her consent. Disney’s “Maleficent” emerges as a fundamentally misguided interpretation of the title character, one that seems to misunderstand what drew people to her in the first place. As a fan myself, it’s hard to imagine another film this summer being as overwhelmingly disappointing a viewing experience.

“A Long Wait,” a work by Joy Adams, is included in the current show at Axom Gallery. PHOTO PROVIDED
Mad Sally is the master again in “The Flying Lesson,” a giantess seeming to call a cacophony of birds to her outstretched arms. They come to her from great distances through a rural, heavily overcast sky, flocking to her loving, wistful face, clinging to her, settling down at her feet. A tiny policeman on the road witnesses the disorder perplexed, standing like a stiff toy. Amid so many busy pictures, the glisteningly pale “Government Issue Bride” heads up one end of the gallery space. With a composed expression, Sally stands centrally, wearing an ornate dress which flows smoothly into the drifting snow. A soldier’s personal trappings, including a compass, helmet, watch, clipboard, and a newspaper, poke up from the snow drifts. Curiously, a child’s hand pokes up from the snow as well. War planes wheel above, scarring the sky, and a lone parachute is almost lost in the billowing clouds. In “Belly,” Sally has stopped, barefoot on a snowy path, preoccupied and grasping her midsection. Many shapes in the landscape echo the fullness of her form — the pale moon, the round boulders lining the path, a spotted ball situated close by. Footprints in the drifts lead back to a dog, following behind. Unlike most of the other open, airy landscape settings, here Sally — and the viewer — is unable to look back very far, as the curve in the path follows around a massive stone. 24 CITY JUNE 4-10, 2014
This calm scene is positioned next to the more turbulent “Sally’s Folly,” in which our furious-looking heroine threatens to swing a broom at something locked in her vision but off-scene, perhaps within the dark ravine above which she stands. Ominous symbols abound: a package rests on a stack of rocks, and behind, an empty carriage idles. In the distance, an excavator is parked in a muddy field. An airplane soars above, and birds have settled on the ground near Sally, who seems to never be without wildlife attendants. A few of Adams’ lush, gouache- and pastel-on-paper works are displayed in Axom’s office area. “Plight of Ganymede” re-envisions the myth of the beautiful shepherd boy who was whisked away by an amorous Zeus disguised as an Eagle. Here, a baby’s legs trail from a swarm of butterflies, the child spirited away from a garden which scrambles after the babe, stems winding around his ankle to hold him. A snake rears up to strike at lower left. A penciled swarm of insects fills the air, creating an almost audible clamor, and above, thick dark clouds give way to bright rays of the sun.

Mid-Century Modern Marvel 103 Glenview Lane, Irondequoit Along the western ridge of Irondequoit Bay, an enclave of small mid-century houses line secluded curved streets that ultimately lead down to the water’s edge. Sited prominently on a corner lot, the home at 103 Glenview Lane makes a statement of subdued mid-century modern style. The low-pitched gabled roofs with large eaves sit atop a strikingly modern composition of light brick, vertical wood siding and large swaths of glass.
wrapping around the chimney to the kitchen. The unique space-age light fixtures and floor to ceiling windows provide plentiful visual interest. The large kitchen completes the loop of space around the chimney and provides access to the finished basement and the covered breezeway to the two car garage. The plentiful cabinets, counter space, and unique built-in oven are well lit by two of the several original skylights in the home.
Built and reputably designed in 1960 by the home’s original owners, Stanley and Ann Gordon, the owners distilled the best of the era’s residential design with their own unique needs. Stanley Gordon, who many may recognize as one of Rochester’s most esteemed painters in recent memory, ran his painting studio out of the home up until the day he sold it to the current owner in 2003. Not surprisingly, the artist’s desire for light is evident throughout the home’s open flowing space.
A mahogany paneled hallway, lit by a space-age light and another skylight, leads to the three bedrooms and full bath, each with plentiful storage and high ceilings. The basement provides a large paneled rec room with an imposing ledge-stone fireplace in addition to a finished bonus room, storage rooms, and half bath.
Entering through the front door one is immediately struck by the beamed cathedral ceilings and the series of large open spaces, each arranged around a massive yet sleek central brick chimney. To the right of the entry is the living room area, filled with light from the several windows and abundant with midcentury design flair with its mahogany paneled walls and large open hearth. The dining room area beneath the peak of the cathedral ceiling flows from the living room,
The quality and purity of this mid-century home’s design is rare in that it was appreciated and not lost to the passing tastes of time. The sheer openness of the design makes it hard to fathom that the main floor comprises only 1,272 square feet, for it truly feels much larger. Listed by Bob Finocchio of Nothnagle Realtors, you can live out your “Mad Men” lifestyle for $134,900. For more information call (585) 3291251 or search the MLS number R246205. by Christopher Brandt Christopher is a Landmark Society Volunteer and continues to be fascinated by Rochester’s under-appreciated mid-century designs.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD
Gigadollars and Cents
In April, Anton Purisima filed a claim in Federal District Court in New York City that the Lowering The Bar blog calculated was for the largest monetary demand ever made in a lawsuit — “$2,000 decillion” (or 2 followed by 36 zeroes, which of course is many times more money than exists on planet Earth). Purisima’s lawsuit names Au Bon Pain, Carepoint Health, Kmart, the New York City Transit Authority, and LaGuardia Airport among the parties allegedly causing him so much distress (by fraud, civil rights violations and even “attempted murder”). Lowering The Bar also noted that “$2,000 decillion” could also have been accurately nominated as “$2 undecillion” or even “two octillion gigadollars.”
The Continuing Crisis — Only in Florida — (1) Calvin
Rodriguez was arrested in Port St. Lucie, Florida, in May as the man who had been using a shaved key to steal a series of cars from parking lots. His spree came to an abrupt halt as he sped away from police in a stolen Honda Civic only to crash into a huge alligator in the road. (2) On May 1st, a wildlife trapper called to Pine View School in Osprey, Florida, south of Sarasota, removed four alligators (one of which was 8 feet long) from the campus while classes were in session (but without disruption). (3) Beachcombers in the Gulf of Mexico town of Redington Beach, Florida, were treated on May 17th to the sight
of a full-grown elephant treading water about 20 yards offshore. (The animal had made its way to the water after being unloaded for a commercial birthday party appearance.) — Democracy in Action — (1) During a regional session of Spain’s parliament in February, a photographer from the newspaper El Diario Montanes captured a shot of legislator Miguel Angel Revilla looking at a picture of a nude woman (in a magazine otherwise concealed inside a folder). (He explained later that he was of course just reading the articles.) (2) In May, U.S. Rep. Joe Garcia of Florida was captured on a C-SPAN camera during a House Judiciary Committee hearing casually eating his earwax. In the sequence, described on a Time magazine blog, he dug into his ear, inspected the results, placed them in mouth, then went “back for seconds.” (Rep. Garcia explained later that he was actually dealing with a “hangnail.”) — One of the leading theories as to the cause of a radiation leak at a nuclear waste dump near Carlsbad, New Mexico, in February is the facility’s recent, unanticipated switch to “organic” kitty litter. Previously, an inorganic variety had been used to absorb liquid in the waste drums shipped to the facility from bomb-making plants that had been temporarily storing the waste pending creation of a permanent nuclear waste storage site.
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 29 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): You will attract pushy suitors looking for a commitment. Don’t feel obligated to move too fast if you aren’t feeling reciprocal. Be cautious about how you proceed in order to avoid a nasty response. Protect your belongings and your reputation. You deserve to be treated with respect. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You will make a karmic connection if you get involved in a cause. Helping those less fortunate or taking a course that deals with inner strength, meditation or something you feel passionate about will lead to a magical connection with someone very special.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You will be a human magnet this week. Potential partners will gravitate to your side, wanting to be a part of your busy schedule and exciting lifestyle. As long as you exude joy and participate, so will everyone around you. Choosing a partner, however, will not be as easy. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Consider your motives when it comes to picking a partner, or you will end up with the wrong person. What you need and what you want may not coincide. Confusion always leads to poor choices. Align yourself with someone who shares your likes and interests.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Participate in events that can help you upgrade your technology, broaden your philosophic outlook or get you moving physically, and you will meet someone special. Don’t be too quick to make a commitment. Time is on your side when it comes to love. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’ll be surprised how much interest you get if you join a dating service, but don’t be eager to make a connection. Relationships are best build on friendship, common interests and getting to know more about someone’s background. Love is in the stars; slow down and enjoy the moment.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You won’t go unnoticed in social settings, but make a point to listen and observe. Keep your personal plans and comments a mystery until you have more information about any love interest you encounter. Disappointment will surface if you aren’t selective. Better to be safe than sorry. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Romance is your ticket to a long-lasting connection with someone you find unique, interesting and as passionate as you. Don’t shy away from someone with a different background or who lives at a distance. Exploring the possibilities and making
future plans will be fun and revealing. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You have to make personal changes and alter your current situation in order to move forward with someone new. Put the past behind you and take an honest look at what you want and what you have to offer before you set your sights on someone new. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You won’t be thinking clearly when it comes to affairs of the heart. Listen to someone who knows you well before making an impromptu move that can disrupt your life emotionally, mentally and financially. A charismatic love-at-first-sight
encounter will lead to disappointment. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’ll have all the right moves and the gumption to act on your instincts. Getting in touch with someone from your past will make you realize the type of partner you want to settle down with. Don’t be surprised if you have a change of heart. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll draw serious interest from someone special who will lead to a commitment. Speak up and let your true feelings be known, and it will bring about plans that will map out your future and help you reach your personal goals. A joint venture looks prosperous.
