Flight pattern Local birders have long known about the birding hotspots near Lake Ontario — wisdom gained through long hours on the lens and guided by intuition. These are the places that migrating birds use to recharge before crossing the lake in the spring, and after crossing back in the fall. A recent study by several conservation groups backs up the old assumptions with hard data. The study shows that migrating birds do take respite in green space near the lake. And what’s more, it shows
that the same migrants — birds like the blackpoll warbler and the white-crowned sparrow — often use green spaces inland, too. To complete the study, the organizations relied on expert, volunteer birders to conduct counts on public and private properties. They were able to identify spots where migrating birds congregate and to pinpoint other likely hotspots. The organizations hope their work encourages public and private preservation of migratory bird habitat.

Fracking and foreign affairs
Arguments about fracking are usually cast in economic vs. environmental terms, but there are enormous potential benefits to our international relations, which have received less attention. Energy independence will allow us to be consistent about our values and to protect our allies. For example, our need for Saudi oil has made us almost mute about human relations in Saudi Arabia. We project the values of democracy and equal rights in very powerful ways around the world, yet quite hypocritically, the force with which we promote those issues in Saudi Arabia is greatly attenuated. The place of women in Saudi society is especially problematic. If we were not dependent on Saudi oil, we could be consistent in our international push for democratic ideals and human rights. Again using Saudi Arabia as an example, the Saudis require that we sell them large quantities of advanced weaponry. When the Arab awakening comes to Saudi Arabia, the new leadership may threaten Israel with some of our best military hardware. Energy independence would allow us to say no to such sales. Our American values and our commitments to our ally Israel would both be well served by energy independence, and fracking will help us achieve that goal. These benefits must 2 CITY

be added to the economic ones when weighing the advantages of fracking against the disadvantage of the environmental risk. VICTOR POLESHUCK
The challenges to the RPD
When incidents of police brutality occur, many in the Rochester activist community foolishly condemn the entire Rochester Police Department. I can only guess how dismayed the “good cops” feel when they are called “pig” or “thugs” after laying their lives on the line every day for me and all Rochester Citizens As a Neighborhood Watch Captain on the northwest side of Rochester, I had the opportunity to work closely with the RPD as well as with church and community leaders. The cophaters can curse me if they want, but I have nothing but good things to say about the RPD personnel with whom I worked during that time. When some cops betray the uniform they wear and the oath they’ve taken, certainly justice needs to be done. An effective and empowered community police review board should be created to participate as an equal partner with the RPD, City Council, the Monroe County district attorney, and the state attorney general in removing uniformed criminals from the ranks of honest and dedicated police officers Chief Sheppard has as his mission the protection of his personnel as well as the preservation of law and order in the City of Rochester. It is downright dangerous for a police officer to tolerate disrespect in the street. He or she must at all times command all situations, especially ones that may turn dangerous. If a mentally ill individual reaches into his coat for a crucifix upon an officer’s “freeze!” command, he is likely to be shot by the officer. The alternative for the
officer is to hesitate and risk making his wife a widow. Let’s take care not paint all RPD officers with the same broad brush that we use on uniformed criminals who do not deserve to be called police officers. LEE LONDON
Leading the school district
On our News Blog on a school board candidates’ forum (“Rochester School Board Candidates See Only the Tip of the Iceberg”): What the hell does a declining student population have to do with the fact that the Rochester school district has proven to be incompetent when it comes to educating Rochester’s children? The declining population is a symptom of the problem, not the cause. I was at the forum, and I found it to be both a robust and entertaining discussion. It’s time for a new approach to educating our children. What we’re doing now isn’t working. VINCE FELDER
Funding the schools
One additional dilemma faced by the Rochester school district is that city residents do not vote on the school budget like residents of suburban districts (“The RCSD’s Grant Dependency,” News). Many residents likely vote to increase property taxes if these increases support additional funds for the schools. The system in place in Rochester and several large cities in the state uses the elected Board of Education members as the proxy for direct voting on the budget by the citizens. And we all know how effective the elected board members are. CONCERNED CITIZEN
Obama and terror On Urban Journal’s “War, Policy, and Obama”: Oh, so that’s how you end the war on terrorism: declare victory and go home. REGGIE
@Reggie: We are neither going home nor declaring victory, although at least this president has decimated al Qaeda. He’s also made us more hated in Pakistan than India, an ominous situation with a country that is producing nuclear weapons by the dozens. It is time, though, to wind this war ‑ whatever you want to call it - down. It’s also time to wind down the war on drugs, after how many hundreds of billions of dollars? And with what results? But is now in 115 countries. 115 countries! That’s the definition of insane. This “war on terrorism” lexicon is nuts, too. Are we really at war with, for example, Shining Path? The military wing of the Irish Republican Army? Does anyone recall Franklin D. Roosevelt declaring war on carrier-based airplanes on December 8, 1941? TROLL WHISPERER
Community of Churches and Baptist ministers several years ago: They want safe spaces for respite open 24/7 so they don’t have to be involved in chaotic situations outside of school and home. Disorganization at home often means absent parents out working sub-par jobs to keep the family going – a pressure imposed by society. Jobs pay less, and what is left of the social safety net is under attack. Things will not get better, and the young people will keep becoming vulnerable to gang activity. Don’t blame the kids and their families. Look further. These people, my neighbors, are under tremendous social and economic pressure. It’s a powder keg. I found Shepard and Warren’s responses shallow. But the reporting of the conversations may have ignored anything substantive either of these officials said. LOUISE WU, ROCHESTER
This would have been a great speech, had Obama made it in 2009 as part of fulfilling his campaign promises, or rather his implied campaign promises. Four years later, however, it’s stale, trite, disingenuous, and way too late. MJN
The state of the city
On “Sheppard, Warren Events Stress Dire Need,” News Blog: I live in the area this article talks about. The parents of the children mentioned here are working two to three sup-par paying Mcjobs. Blaming the parents for “not taking responsibility” is an invalid argument. We are in an economic race to the bottom. Employment figures go up, and so do the number of people on food stamps. That tells you that old jobs are being replaced by even worse jobs. So don’t count on things getting better anytime soon. Here’s what the kids told the Greater Rochester
Unfortunately, we’re all responsible to one degree or another for the sorry state of Rochester. The suburbs provide too much of a buffer for whites to get it, and the wealthy and well-educated in Brighton, Pittsford, Mendon, Rush, Webster, and the east side of the city who are largely the power brokers in this community are too insular and selfinterested to really care. Without the crippling concentration of crime, poverty, illiteracy, in their communities to motivate people in Greece or Chili or Pittsford to action, the problem is largely going to stay the same. Likewise the citizens of Rochester are often too passive and/or submissive to the status quo, or thwarted by previously mentioned elites, who wish to maintain a certain community appearance. Rochester was called the Image Centre in the ‘50s and ‘60s. Unfortunately it is still the Image Center, for the Smugtown crowd. STEVE

Our tone-deaf governor: Cuomo and the cities Our governor is one tough guy. He is Getting Things Done. And as he reminds us frequently, he plans to Get Lots More Things Done. One of the latest things he’s doing is ending the financial crisis in the cities of New York State. “Let’s stop talking about the issue,” he said when he announced his Distressed Cities plan last month, “and let’s start doing something about it.” You might think that’s a tough challenge, given our cities’ problems, but the governor knows how to Get Things Done. When he announced his plan, some officials gushed. “This is the first time I can say there has been an overall recognition and attempt to understand the deep seeded [sic] structural economic problems the cities in particular and local governments in general across the upstate region have been facing for multiple generations,” said Jamestown Mayor Samuel Teresi. In his announcement, the governor named some of those problems: exploding retirement costs, shrinking population, shrinking property values, the recent national financial crisis. But all except the national financial crisis are long-term facts of life for cities. They’re not things we can just ride out by patching a few things here and there. We need substantial, long-term solutions. So what does the governor recommend? That we take our medicine: Cut. Reorganize. Live within our current means. No money, though. “More money,” Cuomo said, “is not the solution to help local governments solve their fiscal issues.” Cuomo figures we just have to get better at managing the money we have, no matter the cost. There’s no need to preserve and strengthen cities. This is a callous, pass-the-buck approach, made all the more callous by the fact that the governor is a smart man whose previous jobs include service as US Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. He knows cities. He knows that they house the state’s neediest citizens: people who need their city’s services, and whose ability to pay taxes is small. This is an intolerable situation, one that will eventually starve the cities to death – and cause irreparable damage to the surrounding suburbs. Here’s what the governor offers as help: • A Financial Restructuring Board, which would help “fiscally distressed governments” draw up a restructuring plan so they could cut costs. Board members would be the state budget director, the secretary of state, the state attorney general, the comptroller, and a “private-sector restructuring professional.” • Money to help city governments restructure. And governments accepting
Cuomo is a smart man who knows cities. But his plan to help us is a callous, passthe-buck approach. the money would be bound by the recommendations of the Financial Restructuring Board. • The board’s service in union negotiations, which — if the cities and the unions agree – would act as an arbitration panel in negotiations with police and fire unions. Rochester Mayor Tom Richards had a temperate but wry official response after Cuomo made his big announcement: He thanked Cuomo for “his attention to our situation and for another opportunity to make our case to the state.” “We will anxiously look into the proposed board,” he concluded, “to see if there are new ideas, strategies, and perhaps funding to help Rochester.” When I called Richards to ask him for more thoughts, he repeated what he had said in his official statement — and what he has said numerous times: We need a better way to finance cities. We can’t cut our way out of this. We’ve already cut. The problem, as Richards says, is that the city has to rely too heavily on the property tax, and that’s an outmoded, unsustainable way to finance cities today. Does the governor just not understand? “I think he thinks we can substantially reduce the problem through efficiencies,” Richards said. We can’t. While he said he wishes the governor’s plan were “a little more concrete in terms of directly helping us,” Richards said he’s happy that Cuomo is at least paying attention to the plight of the cities now. “And,” said Richards, “some of the people who are on the commission – the comptroller’s office, even the budget director – are farther along on this issue than he is.”

Investigators search LDC contractor
Investigators with the Attorney General’s Office seized records during a search of the offices of Navitech, a local company that contracts with two local development corporations formed by Monroe County, reported the Democrat and Chronicle. The search is part of an ongoing investigation by the office, though officials haven’t given details. A Comptroller’s Office report released last year said Navitech received favorable treatment by the Monroe Security and Safety Systems LDC during bidding. The FBI is also involved in the investigation, the D&C says.

Compared to some past budget deliberations, the city school district’s budget for 2013 to 2014 passed without much fuss. But to close a $50.2 million budget gap, Superintendent Bolgen Vargas made a cut that has some students, teachers, and parents worried. Even some board members are apprehensive about the cuts they approved. The new budget cuts about 10 jobs in the Student and Family Support Centers to save slightly more than $1 million. The cuts are extremely sensitive, since the centers provide what is widely recognized as much-needed mental health counseling and guidance for city students. According to a year-end report from the department, the center’s counselors and social workers saw more than 5,000 students in the 2011 to 2012 school year. In some schools like East High, more than 40 percent of the students received support. Large numbers of Charlotte, Douglass, and Franklin students were seen, too. The issues of greatest concern to students, the report says, were academic problems, relationships, and family matters. But the counselors worked with students on everything from anger management to teen pregnancy and parenting. There’s also a strong correlation between mental health support and improved academic
A new report from the New York Public Interest Research Group says that state legislators representing the Rochester region relied heavily on campaign donations from lobbying and special interest groups in 2012. | The report says the 18 legislators representing counties in the Rochester region brought in $2.1 million from lobbying firms and their clients, business groups, trade associations, union political action committees, and nonprofits. The analysis includes districts in Monroe, Orleans, Genesee, Wyoming, Livingston, Ontario, and Wayne counties, according to a NYPIRG press release. | NYPIRG says it’s not implying “a causeand-effect relationship between campaign donations and legislative or other government action.” | But the contributions do help donors gain access to elected officials.

District officials say the cuts are not to the programs or the professional staff who treat students. It’s the coordinators’ positions, the professionals who link and refer students to the specific agencies that were cut. “The change is in how the students are connected to the agencies that help them,” said district spokesperson Chip Partner in a written statement. “They will be referred by school social workers and counselors or [students will] approach the providers directly.” Partner says there has never been a question about the need for the services or the work the staff does. It comes down to money, he says.

The Village of Brockport has three “problem” relationships stretching back years and seemingly impervious to reconciliation. They are the relationship with its police department, with SUNY Brockport, and with the landlords who operate in this picturesque western Monroe County village. All three have twisted together to form the narrative for this year’s village election, which is on Tuesday, June 18. Embattled mayor Maria Castañeda is seeking a second term, running against Margaret Blackman, a current village trustee and retired professor of anthropology at SUNY Brockport. Blackman is joined by newcomer Valerie Ciciotti, and incumbent trustee Carol Hannan on the Revitalize Brockport party. Castañeda’s running mates on the Taxpayers First party line are Rick Ross and write-in candidate Kristina Telles. (Castañeda’s original running mate, Danny Blackburn, dropped out too late to be taken off the ballot.) But whatever issues you think might be relevant in a village election — capitalizing on the canal, beautifying Main Street — Brockport’s current political scene is primarily about one subject, and that’s Castañeda herself. The mayor was arrested and “charged with 14 counts of official misconduct and two counts of falsifying business records stemming from the alleged illegal rental of rooms at her home in the village,” writes Kristina Gabalski in the May 26 Westside News. The rooms allegedly housed students from SUNY Brockport. Castañeda has pleaded not guilty and says her arrest was politically motivated with the intention of ousting her from office “and to intimidate others like me [who] are concerned about the high cost of living in the village.”
But Castañeda’s critics, who include at least two members of the village board, say the mayor is working a not-so-secret agenda to dissolve the village. The theory is that eliminating village
government, including the police department, would result in relaxed code enforcement on Brockport’s many rental properties. Castañeda has never said publicly that she wants to do away with the village, although circumstantial evidence exists. Brockport’s 2010 dissolution vote — voters rejected disbanding the village 959 to 662 — was driven by landlords. And Castañeda has said publicly that the reason the vote failed is because the village lacked a specific dissolution plan, and that another vote is inevitable. “At one meeting, I felt I had to set the record straight,” says Brockport Trustee Bill Andrews. “She uses the statement, ‘Everybody who is against dissolution, it was because we didn’t have a plan.’ So I felt it was necessary to say that was not the reason I was opposed to dissolution. I was opposed to dissolution because I am opposed to dissolution.” Castañeda has also called for a public vote on whether to keep the police department, and urged the village to apply for a state grant to study consolidation of
Mayor Castañeda’s responses were submitted via e-mail and, because of her legal situation, with the approval of her lawyer. Her replies have been excerpted here. resources, with an emphasis on dissolution, Andrews says. Via e-mail, Castañeda said her opponents are trying to control her platform and that only Brockport residents, not the mayor, can decide whether or not to keep the village intact. She said her priority is sound fiscal management and affordable and efficient government, pointing out that Brockport has the highest tax rate of any village in Monroe County. Regarding the police department, Castañeda said she’d love to offer residents an abundance of services, but that ignores the fiscal reality. “How much longer can residents afford to pay about $100,000 a year plus benefits to police officers?” she said. “How long before this cost plus the retirement costs crush the village financially?” The village was on the receiving end of a tough state audit a few years ago. But Trustees Andrews and Blackman say the village has bounced back and is now on solid financial footing. They credit several measures with contributing to the village’s recovery, including the hiring of a grants writer, and collecting on delinquent, unpaid parking tickets. “Everybody agrees the finances are much better,” Blackman says.
You’d think the tumult around Castañeda’s legal issues and the
forthcoming elections would make for some raucous village board meetings, but Blackman and Andrews say village business is proceeding relatively smoothly. “You have four trustees now who are all basically on the same page. And the mayor who is not generally on the same page as us,” Blackman says. “Occasionally something comes up where words are exchanged between somebody and the mayor, but I think it’s been much better.” One exception, they say, is the lack of nominations for people to serve on village boards and committees. The way the process works is that the mayor nominates, and the village board approves. Andrews and Blackman say there are several vacancies on various boards and at times these boards lack the necessary quorums to conduct business. “We work around it, but it’s not a very good situation,” says Andrews, who is also on the village’s Historic Preservation Board. Trying to get to the bottom of the vacancies turns into a he said, she said muddle. Castañeda says she has nominated many competent candidates, but the village board rejects them. She says her political opponents are trying to stack boards and committees with their allies. But Castañeda’s opponents and critics make the same argument about the mayor. When good candidates apply, Castañeda seems to go out and recruit counter candidates, Blackman says — people who support her agenda to dissolve the village. That’s why the village board rejects the names Castañeda brings forward, Blackman says. The tension may have a small impact on village business, Andrews and Blackman say, but it is affecting village life. Brockport seems to have had more than its share of scandal, they say, and people are weary. “I certainly get it going door to door,” Blackman says. “Sometimes I get the sort of leftover stuff, ‘Ah, I’m fed up with the village board.’ And I’m thinking, ‘I don’t think you’ve watched village board meetings for a while.’”

Flight pattern about the birding hotspots near Lake Ontario — wisdom gained through long hours on the lens and guided by intuition. Now those assumptions are backed by hard science. A recent study conducted by the Nature Conservancy of Central and Western New York, Audubon New York, and the New York Natural Heritage Program has found that green space near the lake is heavily used by migrating birds. But that’s not all. Researchers for the Lake Ontario Migratory Bird Stopover Project also conducted bird counts farther inland, learning that migrating birds like the magnolia warbler and ruby-crowned kinglet also make stops at urban and suburban islands of green space. Those include parks, preserves, and private woodlots. “They are using the entire landscape,” says David Klein, senior field representative for the Nature Conservancy of Central and Western New York. The Rochester area is important to migrating birds because of its proximity to Lake Ontario, which is basically a big obstacle to birds in flight. In the spring, many northbound species stop in the area to rest and to wait for good weather before making a nighttime flight across the lake. In the fall, the Rochester area is the birds’ first stop after they cross the lake while heading south for the winter.
The blackpoll warbler is one of those birds and makes an impressively long journey. It starts its spring voyage in South America, originating as far south as the PeruBolivia border area. It stops over near Lake Ontario’s southern shore on its way to the boreal forests of Canada and Alaska, where it breeds. (This year’s northbound spring migrants, including the black-throated blue warbler and the Swainson’s thrush, have mostly passed through the area by now, but will come back through in the fall.) “What’s key for them is that when they’re tired or when their energy reserves are depleted, or bad weather comes in and forces them down, they need to find a hospitable place to land,” says Mike Burger, Audubon New York’s director of conservation and science. That’s where the forest patches dotting the Rochester and Finger Lakes region’s landscape come into play. Some of the tree and shrub habitat that supports the migrating land birds has been lost over
the years — chewed up or fragmented by sprawling development. “The remaining patches of forests and shrublands in this area have become increasingly important to migrating birds, which rely on them for food and shelter,” says the report from the Lake Ontario Migratory Bird Stopover Project. The report is based on data collected over a three-year period by 55 volunteer, expert birders. They made multiple visits to 60 publicly- and privately-owned sites, which were randomly selected from properties known to have significant tree and shrub cover. Birders methodically conducted counts within clearly defined segments on each site. The report’s conclusions echo what many people already know: that preserving green space can have important benefits for wildlife. But the report also pinpoints actual migratory bird hotspots, and researchers were able to use that data, including landscape characteristics, to predict other sites that might attract migrating land birds. The report’s authors say they hope by showing the location of actual and likely hotspots, they can encourage public and private acquisition and protection of some of the properties. They say they also hope the study encourages landowners — public and private — to manage their properties in ways that attract and support the birds.

John Bolton tries to make his 70 acres of
land in Parma hospitable to wildlife. Bolton Farms grows greens for area restaurants and markets, but the land also includes ponds, pine groves, and marshes, which attract deer and wild turkey. Bolton’s noticed blackbirds and flickers hanging around, too. “It’s a very unique location with a lot of habitat,” he says. When organizers of the stopover study approached him about using his property, Bolton says he readily agreed. As a result, he learned his land supports more birds than he realized. After the counts were finished, study organizers provided Bolton with a report detailing the birds they saw or heard on his property. There were over 100 species on the list, Bolton says. Bluebirds and several types of hawks stuck out. “I would say that probably a third of the list of what they gave me, I didn’t realize were on the property or flying by,” Bolton says. Bolton purchased the property in 1983 and has used a maintenance plan developed by the Monroe County Soil and Water Conservation District to make the land friendly to wildlife. It involves tasks like cutting vines out of trees so the trees let in more light, which creates better nesting areas for ducks and geese. Bolton says he appreciates the wildlife that’s around his property and intends to keep the land as farmland and habitat.

Magnolia warbler Ornithologist Alexander Wilson discovered the species in magnolias in Mississippi, which led him to use magnolia in its scientific name.
The groups involved in the study say they
want to encourage other private landowners — individuals and corporations — to follow Bolton’s example. Every private landowner can play a role in developing a welcoming habitat for migrating birds, says the Nature Conservancy’s Klein. The birds often prefer larger woodlots, and owners of those properties can use several management approaches to make them welcoming to the birds. For example, they can selectively harvest timber, while retaining trees and shrubs of different sizes and heights and keeping tree buffers along streams. The study also suggests allowing woodlots to have gradual, meandering edges instead of abrupt transitions. But it’s not just multi-acre woodlots that support migrating birds; backyard bird habitat is important, too. “All of us can play a role here in our lawns,” Klein says. The simplest way to improve backyard bird habitat is through native plantings, especially shrubs like honeysuckle and serviceberry, Klein says. But there are myriad other things people can do in their yards. The Audubon Society has a page devoted to developing backyard and neighborhood bird habitat: http://athome.audubon.org. Federal, state, and local governments often own large tracts of land used by migratory
birds. Frequently they are parks, which already serve, at least to some extent, as wildlife habitat. New York City’s Central Park may sound like an unlikely draw for migrating birds, yet it’s a well-known bird-watching site. The city is on a migratory pathway and the park is a green oasis in a large area of concrete, glass, and asphalt. If a bird is passing through and the sun is coming up or the weather is turning, it’s going to take refuge there. Washington Grove in Rochester’s Cobbs Hill Park is a migratory bird hotspot for similar reasons. Like Central Park, it’s an urban green space in a migratory pathway. These spots may not provide ideal habitat — though volunteers and the city have been working to rid Washington Grove of some invasive trees so that the natives can thrive — but it works. Audubon’s Burger likens stopovers at these urban-suburban green spaces to travelers stopping at convenience stores. Conservation ecologists frequently employ that analogy. “If you’re really hungry and looking for a good meal, it’s not your first choice necessarily,” Burger says. “But if you’ve got to drive 20 more miles to get to a decent restaurant, you’ll probably stop.” Other larger local parks also get a lot of use by migrating birds. And several of them are close to the lake, which adds to

their importance. Researchers found that migrating birds concentrate in the county’s Webster Park, as well as an area in Seneca Park near the Genesee River. Hamlin Beach State Park is another significant migratory bird stopover site, Klein says. The groups involved in the study say they hope their findings encourage protection of more sites. But like private property, the way these sites are managed is also important. And they generally encourage public

landowners to take the same steps as private landowners, which means managing the land in a way that provides attractive habitat and food for the migrating birds. And with parks and preserves, there’s an added bonus to bird-friendly management. Nationally, bird-watching is a growing hobby, and parks and preserves provide the public with a place to do it.

Cuomo and the cities continues from page 3
“Although I don’t think we’re as high up on his priorities as I wish we were,” Richards said, “if I can convince these guys on the commission, then we’ve made some progress.” Even before Cuomo announced his plan, Richards said, Rochester had made some progress: both the Senate and the Assembly approved an increase in our Aid to Municipalities funding. “In Albany, that’s how it has to happen,” Richards said: “Get it started, chip away at it, and then it becomes the norm.” Cuomo has been making a big deal out of his regional economic development programs. They’re needed, Richards said, because economic development in Upstate New York is a big problem. “But that will not fix cities,” Richards said. “There are two different problems here,” he said, “needing two different solutions. And we’ve got to solve them both.” Economic development, he said, “isn’t going to produce this big tax base.” “We are essentially dependent on the real estate tax,” Richards said. “That’s the only revenue we control. We can only tax this contained area we have.” “The real property tax was invented in feudal times in England,” Richards said. “It was. We need a different base, and a broader base.” Richards doesn’t criticize the entire Cuomo
plan. He thinks changing the system of arbitration with police and fire fighters could be important. Under the current system, when the public-safety employees and their city can’t agree on a contract, it goes to binding arbitration. The intent was good: Public-safety municipal employees can’t strike, so they need a way to get their employer to settle contract disputes. But Richards and others complain that arbitrators haven’t considered cities’ ability to pay, forcing them into contracts that, over the years, have become excessive. Richards doesn’t begrudge police and firefighters their salary or their benefits. And he praises Rochester’s unions for agreeing to small salary increases and changes in benefits. Negotiations with Rochester police and firefighters haven’t gone to arbitration for about five years. “These people don’t have high salaries,” he said. And, he said, “Fundamentally, providing benefits is a good thing.” The problem is that the city’s ability to pay has changed. When Cuomo announced his Distressed Cities plan, he made a big point of its not being a one-size-fits-all plan, meeting the specific needs of individual cities. The implication: in the past, the state treated all of the cities the same. But that’s decidedly not the case. The governor’s press release about his new plan showed the disparity: Buffalo got nearly twice as much Aid to Municipalities money this year as 10 CITY JUNE 5-11, 2013
The real property tax was invented in feudal times in England,” says Mayor Tom Richards. “We need a different base.” Rochester did: a little over $161 million compared to our $88 million. AIM aid represents 33.21 percent of Buffalo’s budget this year, compared to 18 percent of Rochester’s. Buffalo, said Richards, “is an example of the principal that you only respond to a crisis.” Unlike Buffalo, Rochester has managed over the years to cut services, cut staff, keep employee raises low – “doing things,” as Richards puts it, “to keep us out of trouble.” And, by the way, Rochester contributes much more to its school district’s budget than Buffalo does. The reward from the state: the conclusion that Rochester doesn’t need much help. How much difference would it make to
Rochester, I asked Richards, if the state’s aid to cities was more equitable and we got our fair share? “It would come close to eliminating the problem for us,” he said. Rochester has managed to hang on, avoiding Buffalo’s fate of getting into such a hole that it had to have a control board. But if the state doesn’t reform the way cities are funded, Richards said, “we’ll eventually get in trouble.” And at some point, we’ll have to cut services so deep that people no longer will want to live in Rochester. Even if it’s still a decent place to live, when you keep cutting services, “inadvertently, you send a message,” Richards said. Years ago, having the property tax as the base of cities’ revenue made sense. Cities housed the region’s wealth. But the nature of cities has changed. New York State government seems to have recognized that change with respect to urban school districts, notes Richards: As the population of city schools has gotten poorer and the propertytax base has dropped, the state has boosted its aid to schools substantially. It needs to get its mind to that point in its treatment of cities. Richards says he’ll keep preaching his message to state officials. I asked him whether he’s optimistic. “I am,” he said, “because I think it’s really in nobody’s interest for these places to fail.” “You gotta believe,” he said. “I think the danger is less that they’ll not do something but that they won’t do it on time.”

“This is so far removed from Flour City Diner cooking,” says chef Jerry Manley, who recently put his popular comfort-food repertoire on the back burner in order to try his mano at Mexican cuisine, which involves a bevy of ingredients that Manley hadn’t worked with professionally... until now. Lucky for us, the results of this intriguing career shift are now being served up at Wylie Chayote’s Fine Mexican Food & Cantina, Manley’s new venture with former Chilango’s co-owner Donna Heiller. So while you’ll find a number of familiar dishes, like queso fundido, tortilla soup, tacos, and nachos, you’ll also encounter Manley’s twists on what might wind up being new favorites. Beef brisket, for example, becomes Wylie Chayote’s barbacoa after being braised in rioja with ancho chile, while flank steak bathes in lime, ancho, and Dos Equis on the way to its destiny as carne asada. The fish tacos, available deep-fried, grilled, or blackened, are market price based on whatever’s fresh, and the caesar salad gets returned to its Tijuana roots. The chorizo is made in house, as is the cotija cheese, which gilds a south-of-the-border spin on Chicken French. This is Rochester, after all.
Wylie Chayote’s will celebrate its grand opening Saturday, June 15, with a mariachi band and bar specials. Meanwhile, lunch service is in the works, along with plans to amass a huge assortment of top-shelf tequilas. Currently there are nearly two dozen, one of which could make its way into Wylie Chayote’s delicious signature margarita, brazenly spiked with jalapeño. Chilango’s fans will be happy to know that Heiller is still making the desserts, such as flan and tres leches cake, and there’s more good news: Flour City Diner devotees can still get their fix on the weekends. That’s when Manley breaks out the whole FCD breakfast menu, augmenting it here and there with fresh Mexican flavors. “It’s exciting to use new products.” says Manley. “And of course I like tequila.” Wylie Chayote’s Fine Mexican Food & Cantina is located at 42 Nichols St., Spencerport. Dinner is served Sunday-Thursday 5-9 p.m. and Friday-Saturday 5-10 p.m.; brunch is served Saturday-Sunday 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Food prices range from $5 to $24.

[ REVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
It was damp and cool within the Bug Jar’s walls Wednesday, May 30, as a damp and hot Clockmen banged on the beautiful crowd like a brass-knuckled Basilio with a body bag. I’ve seen these cats a number of times, and this show’s particularly ragged onslaught was one of the best. The band’s superiority is a result of its raw imperfections. At one point the bass and drums seemed to be playing at different time signatures. If this wasn’t on purpose, it still sounded pretty cool. The set was loud and urgent, and slightly celebratory as it was announced that a little Clockman is due in November. After the Clockmen set the four members of Fox Force 5 took the stage for the band’s highly anticipated world debut. All musicians know that you can only have one first time. You can have a pile of crappy shows, a pile of great shows, but that vertigo-inducing belly flop you get from popping your bandstand cherry only happens once. I was thrilled to see and feel this new punk outfit’s utter glee as it raged through its raunchy set. The tightening up I was initially going to say the band needed

It was like an open jam in a brew master’s living room: intimate and hoppy. Jimmie Highsmith was there, Herb Heinz was there, and I even ventured a meager stab at the spotlight with Heinz’s guitar just to prove — to myself, mostly — that I still got what it takes, and can still take what it’s got. Michelle Younger has got what it takes, especially when that happens to be a pretty voice and a banjo. Younger’s picking was tight and her voice plaintive and sweet as it struggled beneath the inebriated din of copious Casanova come-ons, desperate diatribes, salacious soliloquies, and witty repartee. But it was Bogs’ night as he and his Visionary Orchestra re-drew the borders between artistic expression and interpretation. It involved colors you could hear played by instruments you could taste.

CLASSICAL/ROCK | MUSICA SPEI
We think of early composers of sacred music as having a clear line to heaven and hell. But, what if Renaissance sacred music was actually inspired by the music of the masses being sung, hummed, and whistled on the streets? Join the a cappella group Musica Spei for a performance of Renaissance sacred music influenced by popular tunes. The program includes portions of Giovanni Palestrina’s setting of the “Song of Songs,” Orlande de Lassus’ “Tears of St. Peter,” and movements from Clément Janequin’s Missa. The Missa titled “La Bataille” (The Battle) borrows melodies from Janequin’s popular song “La Guerre” (The War), including the sounds of battle.

CHAMBER POP | RA RA RIOT
JAZZ VOCAL | TESSA SOUTER
Ra Ra Riot hails from our neighboring Syracuse, and the band has made a name for itself on the indie-rock scene. The band plays a brand of pop music that is made distinct through a heavy use of string orchestrations. Recently, the band released the album “Beta Love,” which is perhaps its most accessible, mainstream album to date. With the departure of cellist Alexandra Lawn this past year, the band has embraced less of a chamber-pop aesthetic, and more of a synth-based, dance vibe. “Beta Love” is the type of album that could rocket Ra Ra Riot past its major underground success, toward widespread popularity. Ra Ra Riot performs with The Static Jacks on Wednesday,
Beethoven, Brahms, Schubert, and Chopin may not be known for jazz standards, but, then again, they didn’t live long enough to meet Tessa Souter. A captivating singer whether performing standards or originals, Souter made a bold move with her latest album. She took some of the greatest melodies in the history of classical music, wrote lyrics to them, and performed them in jazz arrangements. Amazingly, it worked; these tunes feel like standards. Souter has enchanted sold-out crowds at three Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festivals. When she takes the stage at Lovin’ Cup, she will be accompanied by the excellent John Nyerges Trio.

ALTERNATIVE | BLIZZARD BABIES
Chicago-based Blizzard Babies is a likable outfit that hangs loose and mixes up equal parts surf punk and girl power. So when the quartet rolls into Roc City — presumably on snow machines — at least the group will be performing at the right venue. Blizzard Babies sounds downright familiar with its garage-pop vibe, albeit with a twist: band member Pamela Joy plays an electric ukulele. Blizzard Babies sings about kittens (“Kittens!”) and barbarians (“BaBaBarians”). That eclectic spirit is also what makes the Bug Jar a special place; a never-ending line-up of alternative up-and-comers that never ceases to amaze your brain. Chika & The Wolves and The Fevertones also play this show.

Dance Finding the center Fabo Collabo 2013 SATURDAY, JUNE 8, 8 P.M. & SUNDAY, JUNE 9, 4 P.M. SCHOOL OF THE ARTS, 45 PRINCE ST. $20-$25 ($10-$15 STUDENTS) | 733-3157 FABOCOLLABO.BROWNPAPERTICKETS.COM FACEBOOK.COM/FABOCOLLABO [ PREVIEW ] BY ALEXANDRA CARMICHAEL
In January 2012, several of Rochester’s leading dance groups came together to create a collaborative performance known as Fabo Collabo. Geomantics Dance Theater, the Bill Evans Dance Company, FuturPointe Dance, BIODANCE, and Push Physical Theatre shared the Geva Nextstage. Now, Fabo Collabo is back, but in a very different way. This year, it is more of a mini-dance festival than a single performance. Starting on June 4, master classes took place for students at School of the Arts. Dance majors at the school got a firsthand look at how the various groups create and perform their pieces. This weekend, June 8 and 9, Geomantics, Bill Evans Dance, FuturPointe Dance, and BIODANCE will perform at the school. (Note that Push Physical Theatre will not be a part of this year’s Fabo Collabo due to scheduling issues.) Fabo Collabo’s involvement with SOTA holds significant meaning for many of the professional dancers involved. Bill Evans, creator of Bill Evans Dance, says that the school’s large stage was only part of the reason it was chosen as a new venue for the event. “We were talking to people at SOTA, and they thought it would be wonderful to get the students involved,” says Evans. “We noticed that a lot of the students do not see local dance companies perform, which is really sad. We wanted them to have this inspiration that would get them interested in the local dance groups
and would help us get to know them, and we could then invite them to see the concerts.” Evans says that part of the lack of student involvement in local dance groups may be financial, but it’s more than just that. “Young people are so digital and they have access to the whole world on their tiny screens,” he says. “Live performances are so much better and so different than on a screen, but I don’t think many of them realize that.” Guy Thorne, founder of FuturPointe Dance, agrees that working with SOTA students is one of the most important aspects of this year’s version of the event. “We will get to connect with future audiences, show them what they are going to see and even do in the future,” Thorne says. “These kids are going to be either future artists or future patrons.” Rochester audiences can expect a wide
range of performances this weekend. Each group’s unique style influences its choreography, music, and set pieces. “The great thing about this show is that the works of each group are pretty dissimilar from each other,” says Missy Pfohl Smith, the artistic director of BIODANCE. “That makes for a great show.” Smith’s group will be performing one of multiple world premieres at Fabo Collabo. The piece is titled “Letter to the World (1.5),” and was choreographed by guest artist D. Chase Angier. It deals with the growing isolation in our society, and how technology can keep people from connecting with each other, Smith says. BIODANCE will also perform “No Dancing Allowed,” choreographed by Smith. “The piece is set in the 1940’s, so it has some lindy hop, some swing dance, but it’s also about recycling American history,” says Smith. “It focuses on how gender roles changed during the war when women had to go to work.”

Another world premiere being shown at Fabo Collabo is Bill Evans Dance Company’s “For Jaime,” which Evans choreographed to Johannes Brahms’ Piano Quartet. On Saturday, the group will perform “Tres Tango.” On Sunday, this piece will be replaced by “The Field of Blue Children,” a Rochester premiere. Geomantics Dance Theater will be performing “Dear Abbey Suite” and “Shadow Light,” both choreographed by artistic director Richard Haisma. FuturPointe Dance will be performing what founder Guy Thorne describes as a “reggae ballet.” The piece, titled “Mother Gooseland,” was choreographed by trop member N’Jelle Gage. The group’s second piece is called “Urban Fissure,” and was choreographed by Christopher Walker. “It’s about the immigration of West Indian people to America, the struggles and triumphs they experienced, and their assimilation into American culture,” says Thorne. “It looks at how Caribbean culture navigated that experience.” A few days after Fabo Collabo, FuturPointe will be traveling to New York City to perform at New
York Live Arts, a venue that showcases cutting edge, socially conscious dance groups. In a small but arts-filled town like Rochester,
this kind of collaboration is vital. More and more, artists are beginning to work together to overcome some of the financial setbacks facing arts groups. Rochester’s theater groups have already seen success through collaboration — the TheatreROCs organization features 22 different local groups working together to build their audiences. “I hope local arts groups in Rochester keep collaborating,” says Evans. “Rochester is fortunate in that we’re so small but there is so much dance here. Collaboration is so important, because it creates awareness of all the great groups that are here. It creates excitement, it builds our audiences, it helps to get people interested.” By sharing everything from websites and marketing to stages and audiences, artist collaboration can benefit artists and art lovers alike. How else would you be able to see nearly all of Rochester’s dance groups on one night?

RECREATION | LANDMARK HOUSE & GARDEN TOUR
As a perpetual renter and dreamer-of-my-future-home, I often admire the more beautiful, well-kept homes of others as I walk through the city streets. It’s thrilling to catch a tease of a gorgeously maintained garden, or witness a home evolve over time as owners solidify their tastes and invest in the nest. If you’ve ever wondered about the interiors and what is found beyond passer-by visibility, take part in the Landmark Society’s 43rd Annual House & Garden Tour, held this weekend. This year’s event features 10 homes and an architecturally significant school around the Park Avenue area, including Westminster Road, Canterbury Road, and other streets that provide quiet residential retreats just minutes away from bustling city culture. The tours take place Saturday and Sunday, June 8-9, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. each day. Tickets are $22, or $18 for Landmark Society members, and may be purchased at landmarksociety.org or at Parkleigh, on the corner of Park and Goodman. For more information, call 546-7029, or visit landmarksociety.org. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY Picture Frames, 6/22 Garden Art, 6/29 Patriotic Pinwheels Free. 377-1982. grossmans.com. Kids Paint Out.

DANCE | STOMPOLOGY VIII
Learning to dance is a great way to stay fit while having fun and being social — and you won’t dance awkwardly in circles or sit sidelined at this summer’s many weddings. Learn vintage dances such as the Charleston, tap, blues, and more at Stompology, Groove Juice Swing’s 8th annual solo jazz-dance weekend, to be held Friday, June 7, through Sunday, June 9, at Rochester Museum and Science Center’s Eisenhart Auditorium (657 East Ave.). The event will feature dance workshops, performances, competitions, and social dancing with live music from the Careless Lovers of Seattle (Friday 8:30 p.m.-midnight at the RMSC, $12-$15), and the Low Down Sires from Asheville, North Carolina (Saturday 8:30 p.m.-midnight at the Memorial Art Gallery, 500 University Ave., $12-$15); and a Sunday dance and BBQ, 7:30-10 p.m. at the Robach Community Center (180 Beach Ave., $10-$12). The organizers expect to draw more than 300 dancers from all over the world, seeking to learn from six expert instructors from France, Seattle, Austin, and New York City. The classes at this event are appropriate for people at all levels of dancing, and no partners are required. Lessons cost $12-$15, and walk-ins are welcome, or you can purchase a day-pass for $75 to attend all four classes either Saturday or Sunday, or both for $175.

SPECIAL EVENT | TONY AWARDS LIVE
Even though I’m not an avid watcher or awards shows, the fact that the adorable Neil Patrick Harris is again hosting this year’s Tonys is a particularly tempting factor. RAPA’s East End Theatre (727 E. Main St.) will host a Tony fundraiser, including a live screening of the Tony Awards, on Sunday, June 9. The evening begins at 7 p.m. and will feature wine and beer, a silent auction, hors d’oeuvres, and special performances by RAPA’s Roc City Singers. Bring friends and bicker over the Broadway plays and musicals that will or will not take home a Tony. “The Anarchist” or “Breakfast at Tiffany’s?” “Matilda” or “Motown”? You’ll recognize stars from the silver screen in the nominee line-up. Will the Tony go to Scar-Jo or Pacino? Or will they favor Alan Cumming’s ambitious turn as almost every character in “Macbeth”? In addition, you’ll get to review the gorgeous costumes, set designs, and orchestrations that went into the productions. Tickets for the event cost $45 or $80 for a couple, and registration is required. For more information, call 8511997 or visit rapatheatre.org. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY N.

Apocalypse all over again [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA
“After Earth” (PG-13), DIRECTED BY M. NIGHT SHYAMALAN NOW PLAYING
Despite the end of the Cold War, the collapse of the Evil Empire, the empty fears about Y2K, the uneventful coming and going of the millennium, the film industry regards the future with a love for both panic and profit. For some decades now, the post-apocalyptic vision has dominated science fiction movies, and when Hollywood imagines the future, it dreams dark dreams.

The latest addition to the genre, “After Earth,” stars Will Smith — he’s been there before, in “I Am Legend” — whose name appears all over the credits, and his son Jaden, playing, yes, a father and son in the distant future. A perfunctory, implausible voiceover narration informs the audience that humans have destroyed the environment, allowing alien beasts from somewhere or other to dominate, killing any humans they encounter. Will plays Cypher Raige (really), a general in a military force called the Ranger Corps, who masters “ghosting,” the shutting down of any fear, which is the only way the beasts locate their enemy. Jaden is his son Kitai, who tries to live up to his mostly absent father’s strict measures and join the Rangers himself. Father and son journey from the new human home, Nova Prime, on a galactic voyage, but their space ship breaks up in an asteroid storm and crashes — wouldn’t you know it? — back on Earth.

High school senior Ariel Small's triumphant journey to spread awareness re: Tourette Syndrome
Q&A TO FOLLOW!
A SISTER'S CALL Tues, June 25 @ 7 pm Award-winning documentary about a sister's mission to save her brother after 20 yrs. of homelessness & schizophrenia.
FILMMAKER IN PERSON!
Cypher and Kitai, the only survivors, must activate a beacon for rescue, so Cypher sends his young son, guiding him with electronic communications through the dangerous landscape, to find and activate the beacon. That adventure and its predictable perils become the real subject of the film, a story of Kitai’s battles with all sorts of dangers, his mastery of fear, a kind of coming of age, and his battle against the most dangerous beast, a monstrous crustacean called an Ursa. The plot shifts back and forth between Kitai’s adventures and his father’s constant advice on coping with all the dangers he faces. It also intersperses flashbacks to some tragic events in the past that explain some of the attitudes of both father and son. Cypher lost his daughter to an Ursa, an event that burdens Kitai’s conscience with a heavy load of guilt. Despite the attempts at a Zen-like profundity in Cypher’s instructions to his son in controlling his terror to thwart the Ursa’s sensory abilities, and the inspirational quality of the relationship between father and son, “After Earth” fails on a number of levels. The various ordeals that the plot visits on Kitai accumulate like a series of bad jokes — changes in temperature, a paralyzing infection from an insect bite, a fight with a band of tiger-like cats, an encounter with a giant eagle that carries him to her nest, and the final battle with the Ursa.
Magic show [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
“Now You See Me” (PG-13), DIRECTED BY LOUIS LETERRIER NOW PLAYING
Perhaps the strangest and indeed the silliest element in the movie concerns the weapons that Kitai and the Rangers deploy against the monsters. Any devotee of science fiction naturally expects the people of the future to arm themselves with ray guns, blasters, atomic pistols, even our old friends, the phasers. But these guys use a sort of Swiss Army knife of a weapon, a rod that turns into a lance, a sword, a hook, whatever, a most primitive device for a race that travels between the stars. With his name appearing as a producer and supplier of the original story, Smith apparently intends the movie as a celebration of his star power and maybe even as a promise of developing into an auteur in his own right. The disappointing emptiness of the script and the direction of M. Night Shyamalan, whose work displays ever-increasing absurdity and deterioration, suggest that such ambitions may never result in any kind of success. The performances pretty much match the film in their level of failed ambition. Will Smith hardly convinces as the stern martinet and further suffers the handicap of remaining supine throughout the movie, living vicariously through his young son’s adventures. Poor little Jaden simply looks scared and lost most of the time, and certainly not physically impressive enough to withstand all the dangers the script creates for him. “After Earth,” finally, makes the apocalypse and its aftermath a most disappointing business.
Bank-robbing magicians is the basic idea behind “Now You See Me,” and it’s such a ridiculous and yet ingenious premise for a movie that it’s a wonder it hasn’t been done before now. The marriage of magic to the heist film genre is a natural fit; both require a fair amount of misdirection, sleight-of-hand, and a nimble touch from the orchestrator of the proceedings. French director Louis Leterrier (“The Transporter,” “Clash of the Titans”), as his filmography might suggest, doesn’t quite possess the light touch necessary to get away with the trickery he’s trying to pull here, but still delivers an entertaining, zippy ride — so long as your brain remains locked securely in the off position. The film begins with introductions to four separate magicians, each masters in a different variety of magic. First up is Daniel Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg, channeling his “Social Network” performance), an exceedingly cocky street illusionist. Then Merritt McKinney (Woody Harrelson), a somewhat down-on-his-luck mentalist; Henley Reeves (Isla Fisher, “The Great
Isla Fisher in “Now You See Me.”
Gatsby”), an escape artist; and finally, Jack Wilder (Dave Franco, “21 Jump Street”), a young pickpocket, who is the greenest and most unproven of the bunch. The four tricksters are brought together by an unseen benefactor to form a kind of superteam of illusionists. The purpose behind the union is a mystery that may or may not have something to do with an ancient cult of magicians known as The Eye. The team, collectively known as The Four Horsemen, attract the attention of the authorities, both international and domestic, when their first act together is to publicly rob a bank in Paris from the stage of their live show in Vegas. FBI agent Dylan Rhodes (Mark Ruffalo) is assigned to the case and tasked with a rookie partner from Interpol, Alma Dray (Mélanie Laurent, “Inglourious Basterds”). The agents must solve the puzzle of how and why The Four Horsemen and pulling off their heists, entering into a game of cat and mouse with the band of thieves, who promise two more acts in their master plan. Also factoring into the fun is Arthur Tressler (Michael Caine), the Horsemen’s financier, and Thaddeus Bradley (Morgan Freeman), a professional debunker of magician’s trade secrets who is out to expose the tricks of The Four Horsemen for his own personal gain. It’s obvious that every member of the cast is having a ball, and they’re all skilled enough performers to make their rather hastily sketched characters engaging. Even the distinct skill set of each magician grows increasingly muddled as the film goes on. For example, by late in the film we’re apparently meant to surmise that the Franco character’s sleight-of-hand talents would naturally translate into significant martial arts skill. The actors all have a nice dynamic together, especially the members of
the Horsemen, though of the four, Fisher is sadly given the least to do. The script (attributed to three writers: Ed Solomon, Boaz Yakin, and Edward Ricourt) never allows her character to properly demonstrate her talents after a memorable introduction where she’s seemingly devoured by a pack of hungry piranhas. Ruffalo and Laurent actually become the main protagonists of the film, and they’re quite good in their roles, but the film keeps trying to mash the characters together in a romance plot line that’s never really convincing. Caine and Freeman, meanwhile, are allowed a number of scenes where they sit around and drolly taunt one another, which is actually pretty fun to watch. “Now You See Me” is a mindlessly diverting B-movie entertainment before it gets bogged down in its third act, trying to provide explanations for the endless plot twists. The fact that it’s the rare summer film that isn’t a remake or a sequel is something to be at least mildly respected in and of itself. It doesn’t quite live up to the potential of the premise, but it’s a fun ride while it lasts. The over reliance on CGI for a number of the tricks is a little disappointing, especially with a credit list that includes at least two “magic consultants.” But Leterrier keeps the movie moving at a fast-enough pace that it speeds by without allowing viewers the time to really consider the plot, which doesn’t hold up if you spend even a moment thinking about it after the credits roll. Although, I suppose every magic act requires an enormous suspension of disbelief on the part of the audience. As Eisenberg’s character repeatedly remarks, when it comes to illusions, the closer you look, the less you’re likely to see. The line also unfortunately acts as a fairly accurate description of the movie itself.
