urban journal | by mary anna towler

Urban schools’ challenge: a community dialogue Over several weeks in May, my column focused on the crisis in Rochester’s schools – what I believe has caused it and what I think we ought to do about it. A number of readers responded with their own thoughts, creating an important dialogue on what I believe is the most important issue facing the Greater Rochester community. Their comments have touched on the role of “culture” and poverty, the influence of unions, the role of volunteers, and their own experience in Rochester classrooms. This is a discussion taking place in urban school districts throughout the nation – because these district have two crucial things in common: tragically low student achievement and a tragically high level of concentrated poverty. It’s a valuable discussion, one that ought to continue, and ought to be broadened. Providing urban students with a quality education is vital, for the students, their cities, and the future of their region. And we won’t be able to

We won’t be able to provide a quality education unless we take a hard look at the complexity of the problem.

do that unless we take a hard look at the complexity of the problem and deal with all of its contributing factors. I’m turning over my column space this week to a selection of those comments, beginning with a letter from someone with firsthand experience in city classrooms: a retired teacher. Next week, I’ll wrap up this expanded series with a few comments of my own.

Since then, I have volunteered by doing read-alouds and history presentations at my former school. I have tried to be a good representative of urban teachers and have praised them and defended them. But I’m thinking about giving up. Why? Because the people who have any realistic chance of turning urban education around are so stupid or blind that things keep getting worse. Governors, education commissioners, politicians – even the president has it wrong. All it would take is for them to spend a week in an urban school to see what all urban teachers know: It’s not the teachers, the programs, the curricula, or how many times we test the students. It’s the poverty, the homes, and the neighborhoods that these kids go home to every night. Many come to school angry, hungry, and scared, with little home-taught basic knowledge or nurturing.

They don’t know common things suburban kids know. Most are not read to when they are little and are not taken places that would expand their knowledge. They do know things at young ages that suburban kids don’t know, however. They know that you survive by being tough and fighting if you have to. They know to hit the floor if you hear gunshots. They know that only the strong survive. This year my volunteering has been done in a fourth grade. I read books and then attempt to have the children discuss the themes and write about them. Here’s how that has gone: The regular teacher usually has to remove a couple of students who are so angry about previous issues that they will not allow others to listen. A couple more sleep through the session. A few are routinely not in school. Seven or eight of the 20 to 25 students do pay attention and respond.

After the first book I read, I gave the students instructions on how to write a response. The next time I came, seven kids had bothered to do the assignment. This is the norm in urban classes, not the exception. In a primary class, the teacher has a parent conference with a mom who is 24 and has five children. They are sometimes homeless. The teacher says that the child is angry. A boy comes to school every day smelling of urine. Child Protective Services goes to the home and finds 10 pit bulls. A mother comes to school “in her fighting clothes” to “rip the teacher’s hair out.” Every urban teacher can tell stories like these. They can also tell of bringing kids food and buying clothes with their own money. They can tell of kids who beg them at the end of the day: “Please don’t make me go home.” What is the political response to all this? “Why are the schools failing the children? We need more


Feedback evaluation of the teachers. Test the children more.” There is a simple reason why politicians do this: it’s easy. It’s not easy to attack the issue of poverty. Poverty, crime, teenage pregnancy, ignorance, and hopelessness are getting worse, despite years of so-called civil rights improvement and even electing an African-American president. Until someone in charge slays that many-headed monster, urban schools where those children of poverty grow up are going to continue to struggle and fail. DAVE REILLY, FAIRPORT

Many of the ideas suggested to help city schools in the

May 16 Urban Journal are good. Some are grossly impractical, such as the revisiting of a Rochester Children’s Zone, which sadly failed in spite of generous state support. But why disparage worthy efforts to provide resources and programs to help city students? When you say that efforts to provide mentors and volunteers for students, books and other resources to city students “do little except make us feel that we are doing something,” you do your own passion for improving the lives of city school students a disservice. I implore you to embrace two tracks of action. One – the track endorsed in your editorial – features the “Big Plan” efforts for change. The second – the track we support at Rochester Education Foundation – is the “it takes a village” track, which enables all of us in the community to make a difference by supporting city students today. There is room – and a need – for both. Mentoring works. Students’ lives are changed for the better through their relationships with the mentors they work for as part of our National Academy Foundation summer internships program. By working at quality employers such as ESL Federal Credit

Union and the Rochester Red Wings, students acquire role models – and nearly double their chances of graduating from high school compared to the general city school population. We also know that when a student gets the chance to play one of the more than 800 musical instruments REF and the community have given to city schools, this opens a door to a life of creativity and joy as a music-lover. Given the dearth of resources in schools, we are proud to give city students new books, which fuel innovative school activities such as book clubs and parent-student reading events – and then are sent home with students to build home libraries. Everyone can do something to help city students – but there is no reason to stint on what we offer. Let’s work on the “Big Plan” issues – and not forget that our students need all we can offer to give them the best chances at success. PATRICIA BRAUS, ROCHESTER

Braus is executive director of the Rochester Education Foundation. It seems your premise is that poverty is the root cause of low student

achievement. How then would you rationalize the story of my father’s cousin? Immigrating to this country as a boy, not speaking the language and with 50 cents in his pocket. He told of sleeping in stables next to the manure piles for warmth. Yet he died as an old man, a multi-millionaire. Or my father, also coming to the United States as a young man without language skills. Unfortunately for me, he did not die a millionaire, but he did raise seven children. He cut our hair, made our clothes, mended our shoes. I can recall when the main course at an evening meal was stale bread sprinkled with water to soften it, drizzled with a little olive oil, some salt, and

oregano. If lucky, there might be a couple of poached eggs on top. I guess you could call this poverty. But none of the seven were ever arrested or truant. All graduated from high school; two went on to college. The story is not unique to the families from a myriad of ethnic backgrounds raised in the Fifth Ward in the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. Many of us became doctors, lawyers, or musicians, or made other contributions to society by being good citizens. And yes, a few went to jail. Was poverty the cause of our success or our failures? I think not. ROGER ACETO, ROCHESTER

I consider myself a liberal person but like many, many

of the middle class, I’m resistant to the notion that we should bear guilt for the appalling self-destructive culture of large portions of the inner city and that we have a major responsibility to “cure” this culture. And like it or not, justified or not, fear (one could say healthy fear) is at the heart of much of the suburbanite’s avoidance of the city. Crime and violence, the perception of crime and violence, are not exactly draws. The burbs are not perfect. Screwed up families, questionable values abound. BUT. Huge dropout rates and accepted violence do not. Until folks perceive the city (and its schools) as safe as the burbs, I think the “distance” will remain. My late father, greatestgeneration, hard-working, twojobs father, in the early ’60s moved us from our Jefferson Avenue house to Greece. He wasn’t escaping anything. The neighborhood was safe, and the schools (Catholic) were good. Gunshots never rang out, and kids graduated from high school, and many were the first in their family to attend college. I think we sometimes blur the line that separates government leaders from everyday folk. Government can help, neighborhood

groups can help, but ultimately it’s up to the individual. It’s up to the individual dropout-druggiegangbanger to say, “This is stupid; school is not. It may be hard, tedious, or boring, but education can give me a better life.” RICK TADDEO, WEBSTER

I am a volunteer tutor in an elementary school on the

east side of the city. Many of these students don’t have many life experiences that allow them imagination, creativity, or even reading about experiences that aren’t relevant to their lives. There are very few city students attending the MAG Creative Workshop or the Eastman Community School of Music. Go into any suburban middle school and almost all the kids play a musical instrument. The city school I am in has an instrumental instructor one day a week. Scholarship money is available but family support and commitment (getting the child there regularly) are not. RSCD needs to return to the neighborhood school for elementary school at least. If there is to be increased involvement by parents, they need to be closer to the action. AL

Our school systems were designed in an industrial age

to operate like an assembly line. Put a 5-year-old in at one end and get a high school graduate prepared for college or the trades at the other end. A standard-issue 5-year-old came well-nourished and repeatedly exposed to reading and writing. He or she had a parent who worked and another who stayed home to “raise” the children. Parents bought flash cards. Parents hired tutors. Teachers worked after class. We believed that all children could learn but not always at the same level and in the same amount of time. Behind the façade of mass production was customization to meet the

needs of individual children. When public school didn’t work, parents reached out to private and parochial schools. We did whatever worked. Now we have school systems based on the belief that all children can learn the same curriculum, in the same amount of time, and at the same level. We ignore that not all children have highquality nutrition, stimulating homes, and extensive learning opportunities prior to entering school. Bottom line, although it is difficult to accept and even more difficult to admit, children in the United States do not have equal opportunities to succeed. What does work is changing the culture of one school at a time. In our attempts to fix everything, nothing gets fixed. Follow the data. Find the schools that do it right. Learn from what works. And never underestimate the power of a principal with strong leadership skills and a vision for excellence. MICHAEL R. PERLSON, PH.D

A significant number of the children who are failing now

were not exactly succeeding in the ‘50s, ‘60s or ‘70s. The “Good Ol’ Days” weren’t. We segregated out special ed kids, and had a few other less-thanRegents options for students who did not reach the Regents standard. We also had employment opportunities at a living wage for those without diplomas. The best social programs for the lower class are jobs at living wages. Want kids to stay off the streets and off drugs? Give them a reason. Want parents home with their kids to help with schoolwork, or just growing up? Give them the means. Until Wegmans, McDonald’s, and Walmart start paying $12 an hour (or until we manage to get the tax burden to the point that we can attract manufacturing), school achievement will remain relatively stagnant.

Monroe faulted on power plant sale

A State Comptroller’s Office report said that Monroe County didn’t break the law when it sold the former Iola Campus power plant to a quasi-governmental local development corporation in 2002. The county did, however, skirt borrowing laws, the report said. The county responded that the Comptroller’s Office should push for changes to state laws governing the corporations.

Something’s up at the crime lab Monroe County crime lab director Janet Anderson-Seaquist has been put on paid administrative leave. A county spokesperson wouldn’t say why. John Clark, the lab’s firearms section supervisor, is acting administrator.

DOMA unconstitutional

The 1st Court of Appeals in Boston ruled that the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional. The three-judge panel’s unanimous ruling upholds a 2010 ruling by a lower court. Most observers say the issue will probably go to the Supreme Court.

Kodak sues city

Eastman Kodak is suing the City of Rochester to get its property valuation reduced by $17 million. The court action challenges the assessments of 16 parcels, including the company’s State Street headquarters. The city values the parcels at $69 million, while Kodak says the value is closer to $49 million. Kodak, the city’s second-highest tax payer, got the city to reduce its assessments by $22 million four years ago. The company has since entered into Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings.

Any borrowing that the City of Rochester does for the Rochester school district’s massive renovation project will not add to the annual amount the city must give the schools. That is the essence of a bill signed into law by Governor Cuomo. Confusion about the city’s obligation caused a rift between the district and the city last year, nearly bringing the $1 billion renovation project to a halt.

Downtown district may grow Downtown is a unique location that differs not only from the rest of Rochester’s neighborhoods, but also from the downtown of 10 years ago. As a result, it may be time to reinvent the Downtown Enhancement District, city officials say. For a fee, property owners within the district benefit from enhanced services including frequent landscaping, litter and graffiti removal, and bench repair. The district is centered on Main Street, with the north-south boundaries at Church and Broad streets, and the east-west boundaries at Chestnut Street and Plymouth Avenue.

City Hall and the Rochester Downtown Development Committee have formed a group to study expansion of the district. Two big questions: where the new boundaries would be and what services would be offered. “I have encouraged them to start small and grow,” says Mayor Tom Richards, “so we can prove to people the value of it and work out the kinks.” Richards says property owners won’t be charged extra for services they should receive as a matter of course. “It’s one thing to have an enhancement because there’s something unique about your area or you’re imposing a unique burden,” he says.

Now

“It’s another thing to say, ‘somebody gets a cop and somebody doesn’t.’” Another question is whether or not to continue the Red Shirts program, Richards says. The Red Shirts, made up of retired and offduty police officers, provide an extra layer of public safety downtown. But with a new police substation in the Sibley Building, the Red Shirts may no longer be necessary, Richards says. A proposal for a new district could be ready by the end of summer, he says. Any plan would need the approval of City Council and a majority of property owners within the proposed district.

Steady lake levels have hurt coastal wetlands, which rely on variable water levels to maintain species diversity, says Jim Howe. The new plan calls for some variability, which would help the wetlands and let beaches and dunes rebuild.

Meetings set on lake levels

Rochester to ban fracking?

Balance is key when it comes to artificially raising and lowering Lake Ontario’s water levels. For 50 years, the levels have been managed to favor shipping, hydropower, and lakeside property, while ignoring environmental concerns. That would change under a new plan proposed by the International Joint Commission, which was formed via treaty between the US and Canada. The commission sets policies governing the water levels of Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence Seaway. The IJC will hold two local informational meetings this week on the proposed plan. The first is at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 6, at Quest Elementary School’s auditorium, 225 West Avenue, Hilton. The second is at 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 7, at Williamson High School’s auditorium, 5891 Route 21. The current plan keeps Lake Ontario’s water levels relatively steady, though the lake naturally fluctuates. That stability has hurt coastal wetlands, which rely on variable water levels to maintain species diversity, says Jim Howe, executive director of the Nature Conservancy in Central and Western New York. The new plan calls for some variability, which would help the

wetlands and let beaches and dunes rebuild, he says. “I think the plan is, overall, a much more balanced plan than is already in place,” Howe says. The Nature Conservancy is Jim Howe. FILE PHOTO one of several prominent environmental groups backing the plan. But there is opposition from a group of lakeside property owners and some elected officials. Dan Barletta, who is active with the Lake Ontario Riparian Alliance, says the plan would cost private and public property owners money. Barletta lives along the lake in Greece and says that erosion-preventing break walls along the lakeshore are designed with existing water levels in mind. The new plan’s upper-level target would leave homeowners susceptible to wave damage, he says. This week’s public meetings are the beginning of a long process. Any new plan would need the approval of the US and Canadian governments before taking effect.

During its June meeting, the Rochester Planning Commission will discuss a oneyear moratorium on hydraulic fracturing in the city. | City Council member Loretta Scott is sponsoring the proposal, which has been referred to the Planning Commission for review. | Rochester sits on top of the Utica shale formation, which is thought to contain large natural gas reservoirs. But it’s not likely that drilling companies would target the city. Rather, the moratorium would be a way for city officials to show they are concerned about fracking. A moratorium would, however, allow the city to prepare should drilling interest develop, Scott says. | The moratorium would apply to city permits and approvals that would be necessary for drilling. And Scott says she also wants it to cover supporting industries, such as manufacturing or storage of fracking fluids. Those operations could locate in the city’s industrial zones. | The Planning Commission meets at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, June 11, at City Hall, 30 Church Street. The commission will make a recommendation to City Council, which should vote on the moratorium at its June 19 meeting.

TOURISM | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

Selling Rochester and the region Rochester’s freeways aren’t dotted with signs pointing the way to warm sandy beaches. We don’t have a plethora of sprawling theme parks, and you can’t swim with manatees or dolphins in Lake Ontario. “We’re not a travel destination like Orlando, Florida. And we never will be,” says Ed Hall, the president and CEO of VisitRochester, the agency that promotes tourism for Monroe County. But Hall, who is retiring after 15 years, says Rochester and its surrounding region still pack a powerful punch for travelers. Thousands of people visit the region every year for a wide range of reasons, making a significant contribution to the local economy. But despite the industry’s health and opportunities for growth, some officials say our travel and hospitality business is underappreciated. Hall says he’s often asked why anyone would visit Rochester. “You find that reaction from residents in almost any community,” Hall says. “It’s sort of human nature to ignore the good things in your own back yard. Most of us when we think of a holiday or small break think of going to a different place. Our mindset is to go away from here, not to come here.” Millions of people live within a 50 to 150 mile radius of Rochester, and many come from much smaller communities. The diversity of what Rochester has to offer those travelers is significant, Hall says. “We can’t be all things to all people,” he says. “And we don’t try to be. But we’re darn good at some things. And we deliver value for the money.” The travel and hospitality industry is

complex, multifaceted, and it has evolved over the last 30 years. Rochester’s travel business mirrors many of those changes. For many years, people tended to think of travel in terms of long-distance trips to Europe or warm getaways. But that definition has changed dramatically. “The worldwide definition of a visitor in the context of tourism today is anyone who travels 50 miles or more in one direction to do anything other than commute to work,” Hall says. “Someone who lives 51 miles away from Rochester and goes to Eastview Mall to shop, we count that person as a visitor.” Rochester’s and Monroe County’s travel and hospitality business employs 15,000 workers, more than some of our major employers, Hall says. And the area drew roughly 1.8 million visitors in 2010, according to the tracking firm Tourism Economics. The numbers for 2011 haven’t been released yet, but Hall says he expects to see about a 3 percent increase.  City

june 6-12, 2012

The economic impact of those visitors is impressive. Visitor spending in Monroe County before the recession reached a high of $1 billion in 2007, according to data from Empire State Development. After a slight dip in 2008 and 2009, Rochester and Monroe County nearly topped $1 billion in 2010, generating $58 million in state taxes and $63.5 million in county taxes. When the Greater Rochester-Finger Lakes Region is taken into account, tourism revenue for 2010 was $1.3 billion. Knowing who these visitors are, why they come to this area, how long they stay, and where they spend their money is the lifeblood of VisitRochester. “One of our strongest cards is our familyfriendly offerings,” Hall says. With institutions like the National Museum of Play at the Strong, Rochester Museum and Science Center, Memorial Art Gallery, Eastman House, and the Seneca Park Zoo, Rochester delivers on that promise, he says. The National Museum of Play draws nearly 600,000 visitors annually, says Suzanne Seldes, a spokesperson for the museum. While many of the visitors are local, the museum draws visitors from all over the world. But the family visitor is just one segment of Rochester’s market, Hall says. The convention and meetings market is significant, too, he says. “We’ve been very successful in the meeting business because of the quality of our convention center,” Hall says. “Business people who hold their meetings here are very, very happy, which is demonstrated by the fact that we get an awful lot of re-bookings.” With more than 80,000 college students and 18 colleges in the Greater Rochester area, college visitors are another segment of the Rochester market. There are also market niches, such as wine and history enthusiasts, Hall says. Mt. Hope Cemetery, the Susan B. Anthony House and Museum, and the Erie Canal are popular with the latter group. “Let’s not forget the festivals, either,” Hall says. The Xerox International Jazz Festival, for example, drew 182,000 people in 2011, many from outside the area.

The National Museum of Play exemplifies Rochester’s family friendly destinations.

“Because they sell their tickets online, we know exactly where they come from,” Hall says. “Last year they came from 20plus countries and 30 states. That’s pretty remarkable for something that started only 11 years ago.” The Lilac Festival, which drew about 400,000 visitors this year, attracts people from southern Ontario, Canada, to Pennsylvania and beyond. Visitors who come to Rochester can also take affordable day trips to regional attractions like the Finger Lakes wineries, Letchworth State Park, Corning Museum of Glass, and Niagara Falls. “If you’re a foodie and you’re interested in locally grown food and wineries, again we have a story to tell you,” Hall says. “Come and see where our world-class Rieslings are grown and enjoy that during the day time. Then come back at night [to the city] and dine at one of our many white tablecloth restaurants or take in a play at Geva.” But Hall is quick to point out that the motor coaches that pull up with busloads of visitors to Highland Park for the Lilac Festival, for example, don’t

usually show up on their own. Marketing and selling Rochester is VisitRochester’s main responsibility. VisitRochester works with about $3.2 million in annual funding: about 84 percent coming from Monroe County. A portion of the county funding is derived from the hotel tax. Much of the rest comes from the support of VisitRochester’s 425 member firms to support promotional programs like “Rochester Made for Living” and “Cold Rush.” VisitRochester receives no funding from the city. Much of the marketing consists of educating and persuading potential customers. And overcoming customer objections and concerns is part of that process. Oddly, Rochester’s winter weather, though often viewed by locals as a detriment, is not a big concern, Hall says. “There’s a whole band of the country that has the same weather we do,” he says. “It’s kind of a straw man objection.” But there are obstacles that VisitRochester does have to work at overcoming, Hall says. Though downtown is safe, perceptions about crime and safety are a challenge. And downtown construction is a visual concern that

may make the center city seem unattractive or confusing to some visitors, Hall says. “We’ve tried to work with our partners in the city to put up some visual images so that people understand that something is happening, and while it looks this way now, progress is being made,” he says. Another problem for many cities is the lack of retail downtown. Major retail lives in the suburbs, but visitors tend to stay downtown, Hall says. Lack of reasonably priced airline flights in and out of Rochester is also a concern, says the Strong’s Seldes. “New flights are supposed to be coming in, and that’s good news,” she says. “If you’re thinking about marketing a region, it’s critical. [Rochester] is only a 45-minute flight from New York City. Can’t we make it convenient?” Michael Marsch, the general manager at the Radisson Hotel Rochester Riverside, says his guests are usually upbeat about what Rochester has to offer. And he has nothing but praise for VisitRochester’s efforts. The industry is extremely competitive and every marketing tool is needed to capture new business, he says. “You need to be aggressive and turn over every stone,” Marsch says. The hardest part is getting visitors here, he says, but once they come here, they come back. The trend in travel and hospitality marketing is to take a regional approach, which provides opportunities for crosspromotions between hotels and various attractions, for example. Promoting the region also gives people more reasons to visit. VisitRochester provides training to frontline service personnel such as hotel

clerks and taxi drivers on answering questions and responding to negative comments. If a visitor makes a sour comment about Kodak’s financial troubles, clerks and drivers are trained to respond with a positive comment, such as noting all of the benefits of Kodak’s presence in Rochester. But Hall says he is disappointed in the state’s lack of support for tourism, especially for the Upstate cities. “They have not been providing us with the larger marketing umbrella that we need,” he says. “They look at New York City’s numbers and they say, ‘We’re doing just fine.’ Well, in New York City, they are. The rest of us need some help.” The “I Love New York” marketing campaign is widely recognized for revolutionizing how travel and hospitality is marketed. But the state’s program has been dormant due to budget constraints, Hall says. “The first series of television ads that went nationwide was amazing,” he says. “It was something none of us in this business had ever seen before and it was extremely effective. To go from that to where we are today is a problem.”

The event is at 929 South Plymouth Avenue.


Dining sorbet, as well as a subtly spicy orange-curry ice cream that Odhner reports will be soon making an appearance at local farm markets between a pair of freshly baked cookies. The idea behind Eat Me is to offer one type of sandwich each week for $3.50, featuring small-batch ice cream plus two harmonious cookies, made in both dairy and vegan-friendly coconut-milk versions. Future creations are scheduled to include sweet-corn ice cream and candied jalapeño shortbread, as well as classic vanilla bean alongside chocolate-chip cookies. Also available from Eat Me, which operates as part of the Small World Food Collective, is a 12-week summer-ice-cream share for $75, consisting of one imaginatively yummy pint every week made from local, organic products. Only daring palates need apply. Eat Me Ice Cream Sandwiches can be found Thursdays 4-7 p.m. at the South Wedge Farmers’ Market, Saturdays 8 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Public Market, Sundays 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Brighton Farmers’ Market, and Wednesdays 4-7 p.m. at the Monroe Village Farmers’ Market beginning June 13.

The scoop on new, local ice cream [ CHOW HOUND ] BY DAYNA PAPALEO

There’s nothing quite like an ice-cold treat on a hot summer day, and this town will soon be serving up plenty of both. Chances are that you have your favorite neighborhood icecream haunt, as well as a couple places worth a leisurely evening drive. But maybe you’re in the market for a new spot? Or perhaps you’re interested in exploring frozen alternatives beyond ice cream? I thought that might be the case, which is why I traipsed around Rochester and risked a case of chronic brain freeze in order to bring you the scoop on some luscious new options. When Jennifer Posey and Zahra Langford moved Hedonist Artisan Chocolates to its lovely new South Avenue storefront, they found themselves blessed with an abundance of space. So, after kicking around a couple of ideas, they settled on Hedonist Artisan Ice Cream. “We can incorporate the ingredients we love,” Posey says, and the synergy between Hedonist’s confections and its ice cream is unmistakable. The dark-chocolate sorbet, for instance, is intense (and dairy-free), while the sublime whiskey-fig ice cream, which incorporates little bits of goat cheese, smacks of the same inventive decadence that inspires Hedonist’s truffles.

Hedonist sources local ingredients from purveyors like Pittsford Farms Dairy and Hurd Orchards, keeping a seasonal rotation of eight ice creams and sorbets priced at $4 a scoop. (Pints are available for $10, quarts for $16.) Yet as satisfying as the flavors are on their own, Hedonist also offers an array of lily-gilding toppings (an additional 25 cents to 75 cents). Drizzle some gloriously boozy bourbon caramel over that whiskey fig, or add some crunch to the juicy strawberry ice cream with a scattering of waffle cone flakes. Or — wait. You’ll figure it out. Hedonist Artisan Ice Cream is located at 672 South Ave. It is open Sunday-Thursday 10 a.m.-9 p.m. and Friday-Saturday 10 a.m.11 p.m. For more information, call 461-2815 or visit hedonisticecream.com. It’s tough for parents who want to indulge tiny sweet teeth, but find that their choices are loaded with food coloring and high-fructose corn syrup. That dearth of healthy summertime treats is what prompted Jessica and Michael Toner’s year-old Snow Daze. Housed in an adorably revamped 1964 Shasta camper, Snow Daze serves up fluffy shaved ice splashed with a choice of syrups made from fresh local fruit and organic evaporated cane juice; cones cost $4 apiece. The local growing season dictates the

flavors. June constants include tart cherry and Concord grape, with strawberry-rhubarb and watermelon-hibiscus in the rotation as well. Between raising young twins and working for her father’s Flour City Pasta (plus, of course, shaving ice), Jessica Toner finds time to add to Snow Daze’s repertoire by putting its all-natural syrups to other uses, with new offerings such as 10-ounce sodas ($2), along with to-go liters for guiltless home indulgence. (Toner is also busy testing recipes for Snow Daze’s upcoming line of frozen pops.) Oh, and Snow Daze is also available for private events if you’d like your next party to be cool, both literally and figuratively. Snow Daze can be found Thursdays 4-7 p.m. at the South Wedge Farmers’ Market, Saturdays 8 a.m.-2 p.m. in the Object Maker’s Lot by the Public Market, and Sundays 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Brighton Farmers’ Market. For more information, call 248-2974 or visit facebook.com/roccitysnowdaze. When Amber Odhner and Cate Augustyn of Eat Me Ice Cream Sandwiches threw an old-fashioned ice-cream social last month, everyone in attendance received schooling on how to properly push an envelope. Delicious seasonal flavors like lilac and asparagus shared the stage with a refreshing strawberry-rhubarb

The astonishing variety at YoTality, Pittsford’s new frozen-yogurt spot, is almost enough to distract you from the brilliant simplicity of its self-serve execution, which puts you in complete control of your experience. Choose from 12 rotating flavors, such as cake batter or sea-salt caramel pretzel, toppings that run the gamut from gummy bears to fresh blackberries to toasted flax seed, and traditional sauces like marshmallow and chocolate. Then bring it to the weigh station and pay 52 cents an ounce for however much or however little you decided upon. Next, enjoy. YoTality is the brainchild of Gene and Suzy O’Donovan, founders of Montana Mills Bread Company and Pittsford parents of three who developed YoTality with wholesome eating habits in mind. The frozen yogurts — there are currently about 40 in play, with more on deck — are all kosher, either low- or non-fat, and occasionally sugar-free, meaning that you can afford to get a little naughty with add-ons like M&Ms and brownie pieces. Or you can keep it nice thanks to a variety of fresh fruits, nuts, and grains, which, when paired with YoTality’s plain Euro Tart, make you feel like the world’s healthiest person. So go ahead and tuck a couple of Butterfinger chunks at the bottom... you know, for dessert. YoTality is located at 6 S. Main St., Pittsford. It is open daily 11 a.m.-10 p.m. For more information, call 967-3938 or visit yotality.com. Chow Hound is a food and restaurant news column. Do you have a tip?

Wednesday, June 13 Abilene, 153 Liberty Pole Way 8 p.m. | $8-$10 | abilenebarandlounge.com [ ALT-COUNTRY/BLUES ] Scott H. Biram is eloquent

and to the point. He’s lyrically profane and socially vulgar. He opened his last show here in Rochester with the words, “Who wants to fuck?” And his music is equally salacious; a hybrid of Delta blues and violence. Biram is a one-man band of sheer insanity and wit, with the relentless kick-drum drive of classic rock ’n’ roll. It’s like if the Dead Kennedys ever did a field holler, or if Seka worked for Planned Parenthood. It’s a righteous riot, a hellacious hullabaloo.

[ review ] by frank de blase

[ Southern Rock ] Molly Hatchet crawled from

the swamps of Florida three decades ago to round out the first wave of Southern rock, joining industry icons like Lynyrd Skynyrd and .38 Special. After flirting with obscurity for years, the1979 hit “Flirtin’ with Disaster” solidified Molly Hatchet’s place as one of the definitive groups of the decade. While the line-up may rotate along with the venue, Molly Hatchet will always offer equal parts nostalgia and timeless rock and roll. This is the first concert in the 2012 Party in the Park series. — BY JARED BENNETT

Boom Chick Sunday, June 10 Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way 8:30 p.m. | $5-$7 | abilenebarandlounge.com [ Blues Rock ] Boom Chick plays a special Sunday

night show at Abilene to remind us of two universal truths: summer is hot and rock music should be loud. With songs like “When I Don’t Love my Rock ‘n’ Roll” or “Ghost of Bo Diddley,” it’s no secret that the group pays homage to the golden age of American music, but the distorted guitar and fuzzy vocals of Frank Hoier over the no-frills percussion of Moselle Spiller, emulate those rock legends beyond surface-level tribute. While Boom Chick calls Brooklyn home, Abilene is probably the best place to see this upbeat act; it’s a place where elbows rub and, above all else, music reigns. — BY JARED BENNETT

Bar & Grill

For all its allure and promise, the music business tells a lot of lies through sharp teeth. It is duplicitous, fickle, and cruel. It’s worse than cheerleader tryouts. So any young artist that truly takes a stab at it has my support, and my sympathy. Rochester-by-way-of Ft. Myers, Florida, tween-pop newbie Ryleigh made her debut in a showcase at Hochstein School of Music and Dance on Wednesday, May 30. It was also the debut of her video for the song “Txt Me” — a high-end production with choreography, lighting, the works. But what I find particularly interesting is who is behind this new act: Zazu Pitts. Pitts is the charismatic front man and the brains behind Bitter Flesh Thing, a rather heavy and dark zombiecyborg industrial metal outfit a la Nine Inch Nails. Makes for an interesting dichotomy, to say the least. Ryleigh sang “Txt Me,” along with a couple of other covers I could have done without, showcasing her strong voice and a charming presence. Tween pop is a narrow market and I wish her luck. She’s got a catchy tune and the goods (and a producer) to give it a solid go. Thursday night The John Payton Project got down and extra funky

at Dinosaur Bar-B-Que. The band transcends its jam roots by, well, jamming. I guess it’s the saxophone’s jazzy honk or the guitar’s dogfight-over-Britain attack. And man, you should have heard Payton’s drum solo that night; it was pure harnessed thunder pounded out with mucho gusto by arms the size of legs. Headed out Saturday night for more tween pop at The Firehouse, a relatively new live music joint. I stuck around for a couple of the bands on this multibilled affair. I hadn’t seen The Grinders in forever and wallowed in the comfort of each song’s familiarity and precarious stance. It was reckless and fun and extremely loud. At his point The Grinders — a band that still puts out 45s — are an institution. Or maybe they should just be institutionalized. This was barroom rock ’n’ roll at its primal best. Pink Elephant followed with its tight, seething indie-rock. The band’s twinguitar attack created a jagged sonic wall within the accelerated and sometimes syncopated time signatures. Nobody in Rochester is doing this right now. Not this well, anyway.

Wednesday, June 6

that spark, something that gets me excited. Some days it’s current issues and on other days it’s more traditional things, like love and relationships, life and death. What are some of your early influences?

Initially it was a wide mix of country singersongwriters, folk guys… Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, Jimmy Buffett, Jim Croce, Kris Kristofferson. What was it about these artists that struck you?

Troubadour Hayes Carll has received critical acclaim for his music, including accolades from American Songwriter magazine and the American Music Association. PHOTO PROVIDED

Living to tell Hayes Carll w/Davey O, Jack and the Bear Monday, June 11 Abilene, 153 Liberty Pole Way 7 p.m. | $20 | abilenebarandlounge.com Hayescarll.com [ INTERVIEW ] By Frank De Blase

The world is full of singer-songwriters who are cosmically put in place to make sense of life with their keen observations, glib humor, and unwavering honesty. Their work serves as our narrative. It can be revealing, humorous, beautiful, painful, and painfully honest. Texas troubadour Hayes Carll is one of these beacons. He shines with honesty dressed in irony, and steeped in a simple beauty. And those that dig Carll aren’t alone; his song “Another Like You” was voted No. 1 song of 2011 by American Songwriter magazine, and his album “KMAG YOYO” was the American Music Association’s top album. Carll’s name also found its way onto best-of lists for Rolling Stone, Spin, and The New York Times. Whether it’s fronting his rollicking, twang-tastic band, the Gulf Coast Orchestra, or waxing honky-tonk a la carte, 12 City june 6-12, 2012

They were storytellers. And guys like John Prine or Dylan or Kristofferson — who are probably my top three — they were writers, but they weren’t classically trained good singers. They just sounded like guys who had really lived life, and lived to tell about it in a real, believable way. That really gave me hope when I started singing. I was like, “If my voice sounds authentic or unique in some way, I don’t have to hit all these amazing notes.” Those guys turned me on a lot early on. A lot of it was just the storytelling aspect, the having been places and seen things that I hadn’t seen at that point in my life. I was very desperate to go out and have adventures of my own to write about. What’s your favorite song of yours and why?

Carll is truly a remarkable songwriter. He took few minutes out of some family time in Houston to chat about the irony in irony, his favorite songs, and if he’s ever had a girl leave him for Jesus. An edited transcript of the discussion follows.

I don’t know, man. I’ve got my favorite songs. I don’t know what the best one is. I guess it just depends on my mood or how long I’ve been playing it. I’ve got this song “Arkansas Blues” off of my first record that I like a lot. And then there’s a couple off the second record, “Long Way Home” and “Wish I Hadn’t Stayed So Long.”

CITY: Are your songs more observations or comments? Hayes Carll: I guess it depends upon the

Any you don’t like?

song. Generally they’re more observations than comments or critiques.

As far as anything I’m ashamed of, if you went through my office there’s a lot of stuff I’d never want to see the light of day. But I’m pretty proud of everything I’ve released.

You certainly observe a lot of irony.

Has a women ever left you for Jesus?

There’s a lot of irony in life in general. It tends to show itself when you’re looking at stuff a lot, whether it’s everyday life, politics, or religion. One of my favorites, Ray Wylie Hubbard, said the problem with irony is not everyone gets it. You run that risk sometimes. How do you go about writing a song?

It’s changed over the years. When I first started it was if I could find a rhyme. That was pretty much the criteria. It’s changed from record to record. Whatever catches my interest, I just run with it, looking for

No. We didn’t know what kind of life [“She Left Me for Jesus”] would have, or what a common phenomenon it was. I’ve literally met 200 people who have come up, “Oh by the way, my girlfriend/boyfriend, wife/ husband left me for Jesus.” There’s actually a little undercurrent of people who’ve gone through that.

FOLK | Rochester Women’s Chorus

There is a familiar ring to XVSK’s sound. Maybe it’s lead singer-cellist Trevor Exter’s vocals that suggest artists like Jack Johnson. Imagine “Brushfire Fairytales” driven by a cello instead of an acoustic guitar and this may partially paint the XVSK picture. Formed in 2009, the Bethlehem, Pennsylvaniabased duo’s musical roots are diverse. Drummer John Morgan Kimock is a second-generation rocker whose father performed with several Grateful Dead-affiliated bands. Exter is influenced by the world beat of Argentina and Brazil. Together the members of XVSK (Exter vs. Kimock) are purveyors of a fine blend of indie cello blues rock that should get you in the mood for the upcoming Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival.

There’s something easy about warm weather and days with long light. It turns me around from the depths of Russian classical masterworks into folk, blues, guitars, and campfires. Here’s a concert that sounds just right for this time of year, put on by the Rochester Women’s Community Chorus. The evening will feature songs about friendship, community, and hope. Don’t sing along too loudly to programmed works like “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “Lean on Me,” and “We are Family.” Also on the program is a folksong, “Igraj Kolce” (“Come and Dance in a Ring”) by Slovenian composer Jakob Jez. A portion of the concert proceeds will benefit the Gay Alliance Youth Program.

POP | 98PXY Summer Jam

The 98PXY Summer Jam has become an annual rite of the warmer months, with past performers ranging in scope from Destiny’s Child to Aaron Carter. This year’s iteration of the Jam doesn’t feature any bona fide superstars, but if you should recognize at least one of each of the artists’ songs. From the maddeningly addictive (Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe”) to the silly (Wallpaper’s “F**king Best Song Everrr”), each of this year’s artists can lay some claim to being The Next Big Thing. Whether or not you appreciate 98PXY’s taste in music, it’s difficult to deny that its finger is on the collective pulse of the pop landscape. In addition to the two mentioned, Breathe Carolina, Neon Hitch, Chiddy Bang, DEV, Karmin, and local product Gym Class Heroes all perform. The 98PXY Summer Jam kicks off at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 12, at Frontier Field, 1 Morrie Silver Way. $30-$50. 98pxy.com. — BY ANDY KLINGENBERGER

Textual tension “Reversing the Catastrophe of Fixed Meaning” By Scott McCarney Through July 9 Visual Studies Workshop, 31 Prince St. Thu 5-8 p.m., Fri-Sat noon-5 p.m. 442-8676, vsw.org [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

The ways in which we realize that we are powerful beings through sexual expression are manifold and complex, but can probably be filtered down into two groups. The most basic, of course, is yielding to the undeniable animal drive to eject our genetic material (more immediately for men, then later for ladies, via birth). The other is the magnificence of sharing this connection with another human being who we care for deeply. Over the years the potential for the individual to actualize this power has been minimized through body shaming. Cultures began putting names and categories to certain actions and relationships, telling us that some are off-limits, filthy, evil. Bookmaker Scott McCarney’s work deals with the long, difficult path toward making sense of, defying, and even mocking these imposed limitations. His current show at Visual Studies Workshop serves not only to transform old definitions into new narratives, but also to deal with past and ongoing fear mongering as expressed in religious and political realms. In “Reversing the Catastrophe of Fixed

Meaning,” McCarney doesn’t mince words even 16 City june 6-12, 2012

as he literally dices up old texts, transforming encyclopedias, bibles, and other printed documents that have attempted to pin human culture to permanent modalities. In the case of religious guidebooks, the modes have never really fit everyone, and they exerted the same shackles on past human beings that they attempt to exert today. In his works of textual deconstruction, McCarney mimics what gays must literally do: rearrange existing structures to redefine the space for themselves within the broader culture. In “Gay Courage,” a window is cut in a book cover to reveal layers of cut paper and a fit young boxer busting through bars of text. Through his silhouette, we glimpse a couple of young men locked in a kiss in front of a crowd. Many of McCarney’s works are embedded with bits of pornographic imagery and suggestive fragments of text, “ornamented with the most superficial and easily decoded allusions to gay sexuality — just as the campiness that was the hallmark of gay culture is eroding as our visual environment has become saturated with explicitness,” says guest curator Cyril Reade, professor of art history at Rutgers-Camden and director of the Rutgers-Camden Center for the Arts. “The New Wonder Book Cyclopedia of World Knowledge Vol. XI (SPA-TRE)” is mounted to the wall, its binding a phallic explosion of a rocket, train, and the surging prow of a ship. The covers contain circular cut-outs, revealing bits and pieces of orifices, fingers, eyes, and all manner of erogenous zones, while bits of text peek through and speak of sublimated yearning. The whole work transforms the viewer into voyeur. Other works, such as “Multiple Orgasm,” are more symbolically erotic. The open text’s

expressed in an altered Book of Mormon, as well as “Bible for Terry Jones,” named for the Qur’an-burning pastor and presidential candidate. The book is covered with matches that form a cross, and is propped on a metal case. A row of altered books bring humor back into picture. In “Dickheads,” the faces of Adolf Hitler, General Douglas MacArthur, and others are replaced by flesh mushrooms. Nearby is “Types of Helmets,” in which a grid of headgear illustrations where penis heads have replaced all of the faces is flanked by two works entitled “CMen.” The left side is a grid of text with eyes peeking through cut holes, the right side with one-eyed-willies doing the same. McCarney’s show also includes blasts at homeland security and political fearmongering, with works that mimic elevated terrorist risks, and “Safe,” a flipthrough exploration of how American culture and government has minimized our capacity and willingness to trust and care for one another. The latter comes with a dedication to the artist’s partner for being his sanctuary. This year, perhaps more than any other, is proving to be the year of the gay voter and consumer, and everyone from President Obama to JCPenney is making sweet, commercial love to a portion of the population whose tides of support are at last rushing in to drown its detractors. McCarney’s works go for the throat of religious politicians who pretend to preserve the family, but his silence regarding the gay marriage-supporting incumbent presidential candidate indicates his preference. McCarney’s oeuvre is representative of our quickness to trust seemingly progressive politicians. “Knowledge is not bound to the medium that distributes it,” writes curator Reade. In many ways, human culture insists upon clinging to obsolescence. Reject outdated manuals and write your own. Or, if we must look to a guide, take a page from Darwin’s book: survival of the fittest means that those who adapt best to change — inevitable change — will endure. Scott McCarney will join curator Cyril Reade in conversation Thursday, June 28, 7 p.m., as part of the Photo-Bookworks Symposium at VSW (June 28-30). For more information visit vsw.org.

RECREATION | Finger Lakes TRYathlon

We could all use a little more activity in our lives. If you’re having trouble getting started, ease into physical fitness in the gorgeous scenery just southeast of Rochester with the Finger Lakes TRYathlon. See that emphasis on the “try”? The smart endeavor, which will take place on Saturday, June 9, encourages people to get out and sample a variety of activities to enhance your health. Kicking off at 8 a.m. with registration and healthy breakfast items at Dryer Road Park in Victor, the day will feature a guided hike, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding, and a bicycling expedition. TRYathletes will also be treated to a healthy lunch at the Canandaigua Wegmans. The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required by calling 394-3915. Participants must bring their own bicycles and helmets. For more information visit visitfingerlakes. com/natures-health-club/finger-lakes-tryathlon. Also taking place on Saturday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., is the 15th Annual Genesee Valley Chapter of the Adirondack Mountain Club’s Outdoor Expo, where you can learn more about being active in the great outdoors.

Theater “Showcasing new work helps us avoid a trap,” Sayles says. “Most theaters believe they should try to appeal to everyone, but that’s how you lose your identity. Our core audience loves the big classic musicals, but we’re hoping to draw different groups for different kinds of shows.” The decision to mount so many plays in just under six months is possible only because three theaters are already available, making for a set up that is reminiscent on a smaller scale of the Shaw and Stratford festivals in Canada. The Merry-Go-Round Playhouse is currently the largest of the theaters involved with the Musical Theatre Festival, with 501 seats, and it will house six of the shows. The 200-seat Auburn Public Theater is in the center of town, and Theater Mack, with 100 seats, is a newly reconditioned carriage house. “Every time we’re successful,” says Sayles, “we start looking for the next thing to do.” Among other things, the Playhouse has been working with Cayuga Community College on “the most gorgeous 386-seat theater” that opens in 2013 and will give the Festival a fourth stage.

Another opening, another show Finger Lakes Musical Theatre Festival Through October 20 Merry-Go-Round Playhouse, and other venues in Auburn, NY $20-$48 | 800-457-8897, fingerlakesmtf.com [ PREVIEW ] BY MICHAEL LASSER

Even if some of his neighbors don’t know what the word means, Ed Sayles has a lot of chutzpah. Now in his 31st season as producing director of Auburn’s Merry-GoRound Playhouse, Sayles and the staff have reinvented the Playhouse’s four-musical summer season as the first annual Finger Lakes Musical Theatre Festival. It will mount 29 shows between now and the end of October. Among the titles in the Finger Lakes Musical Theatre Festival’s opening season are Broadway warhorses like “My Fair Lady” (July 25-August 15), “Kiss Me, Kate” (through June 20), and “Cabaret” (August 22-September 8); the funny but edgy recent musical “My Mother’s Lesbian Jewish Wiccan Wedding” (July 5-28); an off-Broadway hit in “Nunsense” (October 3-20); a not-especiallysuccessful show that may deserve a second 20 City june 6-12, 2012

look in “9 to 5: The Musical” (June 27-July 18); and short runs of 20 new shows that no one has ever seen or maybe even heard of, under the umbrella title of “The Pitch” (June 14-August 18). While nine of the musicals are more-orless familiar and will almost certainly draw the largest crowds, the 20 in “The Pitch” are probably closest to the festival’s heart. In other words, the most popular shows will be helping to pay for new musicals, some more innovative and controversial than others. Performed for three days in 45-minute condensed versions, these new shows have the potential to be the most innovative and exciting part of the festival because they represent what Sayles calls “the next generation of playwrights and composers.” Aside from having a chance to revisit a musical you love or maybe see one you missed, audiences for “The Pitch” also have a chance after each performance to talk about the future of the musical in conversations with writers and other members of what Sayles calls the “creative team.” “One of our goals,” says Sayles, “is taking what is happening with musical theater all across the country and bring it to a place so people who would never go below 42nd Street can see it.” Among the musicals in “The Pitch” are “Salamander Leviathan,” in which the

loneliest man in the world makes a deal with the devil, trading his soul for a wife and family; “The Life of a Mob Wife—A Mafia Comedy,” about the mishaps and misunderstandings in a marriage between a mob boss and his wife; “Dogwood Days,” in which the government hires a writer to retell narratives from exslaves; and “Off with Her Maidenhead,” in which a 16th century nunnery is fined, incorrectly, for being a brothel. One of Sayles’ major challenges is breaking

even on an ambitious not-for-profit festival set in a small Finger Lakes city. Auburn has fewer than 30,000 residents but Sayles is quick to point out that, between them, the Rochester and Syracuse areas have close to 1 million people. He believes that a show like “My Fair Lady” will draw well even though it is revived frequently. “We make that kind of decision based on our location,” he says. “Nobody here is putting on a big musical but us.” Sayles also knows that Auburn won’t provide enough audience members for the lesser-known shows, but they will be in small theaters, and “that’s where we hope people from outside the area will come.” The range of shows suggests that he wants to draw both bus tours and repeat theatergoers, but also appeal to different kinds of audiences.

The Playhouse has come a long way in

what started out as a 12-sided building for a merry-go-round. In 1958, a few years after the ride closed down, Sue Riford started doing children’s shows there and, in 1972, added musicals to the mix. By 1978, what had taken on the name of the Merry-GoRound Playhouse was doing only musicals because, Riford had noticed, “Every time we do a musical, we sell out.” The Playhouse had also signed an agreement with Actor’s Equity, the professional actors’ union. Currently, MGR uses a minimum of seven Equity actors in each production. If you have never seen any of the classic musicals on tap this summer, here’s a chance to catch up to them, all with professionals in the lead roles. If you like something smaller and slightly off the beaten track (though hardly controversial), you can choose “Nunsense,” the first and best of the numerous musicals that make fun of the clergy, or “Fingers and Toes,” a Judy-and-Mickey-puton-a-show kind of show. I’d choose that one because I haven’t seen it and I’m a sucker for good tap dancing. I would also try to time it to get to “The Pitch.” It wouldn’t matter what was playing; it would let me peek into the future and hear how audiences react to it. Asked to characterize the potential audience for all these shows, Sayles says, “Look at your neighbor. It’s whoever comes. These are Upstate New Yorkers, from lawyers to steel workers.” But, he adds, “Mainly, we need to keep costs down so regular people can afford to come.”

The witch, the mirror, the dwarfs back again [ REVIEW ] by George Grella

audience — no doubt recognize the familiar plot and characters in the new version. The producers of “Snow White and the Huntsman,” however, “Snow White and transform much of that material into something the Huntsman” quite different from the brilliant Disney classic or (PG-13), directed by Rupert Sanders its many sequels, remakes, and imitations, which Now playing include by the way, a porno version (shameful). The movie begins with a back story, Told and retold for centuries in many different accompanied by a voice-over narration, explaining cultures, even the most familiar fairy tales the history of Snow White’s birth, introducing the undergo a wide variety of permutations. The witch Ravenna (Charlize Theron), and recounting latest cinematic retelling of the Snow White story, Ravenna’s rise to power. The witch first marries, the second to appear this season, demonstrates then kills, Snow White’s father, taking over his some of that potential for variation. Most viewers kingdom, imprisoning Snow White (Kristen familiar with the basic content of the story — and Stewart), oppressing the populace, and turning that must include just about everyone in the the countryside into a wasteland. She maintains her ageless beauty by vampirically sucking the vitality out of a series of young women; when her magic mirror informs her that she no longer qualifies as the top looker in the kingdom, she sends her creepy brother, Finn (Sam Spreull), to bring her the princess. Snow White escapes the clutches of the evil siblings Chris Hemsworth and Kristen Stewart in “Snow White and the Huntsman.”

and spends most of the movie fleeing Ravenna’s magic and coping with the supernatural terrors of a nightmare landscape in a place called the Dark Forest. The script thus transforms the material of the fairy tale into something like a medieval epic, heavily influenced by the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, showing an episodic journey of the young maiden through countless perils, with several interruptions for combat with swords, maces, and axes. That combat mostly involves the huntsman of the title (Chris Hemsworth), hired to find Snow White because Ravenna cannot work her magic in the Dark Forest; he falls for the princess and becomes her protector and defender. He swings his axe against Finn’s supernatural cavalry, then later against Ravenna herself, who dissolves into a flock of crows and flies away. The Dark Forest resembles the sylvan landscape of “The Lord of the Rings,” a dangerous, metamorphic place, with trees that move and menace, vines that turn into serpents, and an apparent chunk of earth that rises up as a monstrous troll. The screenwriters constantly throw in more plot, more characters, more monsters, more battles, ultimately dissipating much of the charm of the familiar story. They retain the magic mirror — much spookier in this film — the poisoned apple, and even the seven dwarfs, who are not exactly the lovable gang of the animated feature. Although the crew in this incarnation doesn’t include anyone named

Shock and awe [ REVIEW ] BY DAYNA PAPALEO

“The Innkeepers” (R), written and directed by Ti West Screens Saturday and Sunday at the Dryden

“First Position” (NR), directed by Bess Kargman Opens Friday

Sneezy, Sleepy, Dopey, or Doc, most of them seem pretty grumpy most of the time; they also, however, join with Snow White and the Huntsman to fight against Ravenna, Finn, and her dark army of supernatural warriors. The remarkable special effects and the terrific cinematography overwhelm just about all the actors, who seem themselves dwarfed by the landscapes, the monumental interiors, and all the wonderful metamorphoses. Charlize Theron rages hysterically in most of her scenes, screaming her lines, delighting in the evil she inflicts, and chuckling lewdly when she sucks the life out of her young victims. The cornball dialogue limits the other actors, like Chris Hemsworth, who frequently mutters indistinctly, and Bob Hoskins as the blind leader of the dwarfs, who pronounces words of deeply sentimental nonsense. The greatest problem of “Snow White and the Huntsman,” unsurprisingly, resides in the person of the protagonist. Kristen Stewart demonstrates that her awful performances in the “Twilight” series were no fluke, since she reproduces almost exactly the facial expressions, the mannerisms, the attitudes of her previous starring role. Whatever the situation — an attack, a monster, a death, a rescue, etc. — she expresses a kind of muted anguish, like a prom queen who’s misplaced her tiara. An actor of ineffable insipidity, who robs a frame of power as soon as she enters it, Stewart just about ruins the picture.

Less is more, they say, and this holds especially true when it comes to horror flicks. Of course, there will always be those directors who rely upon crimson spatter and miles of intestines, trafficking heavily in the shock value brought about by Grand Guignol gore. Then there are those filmmakers who appreciate the similar-sounding but very different value of shock; they’re patient and disciplined to a maddening degree, and they understand that what you’re not able to see — what you’re forced to only imagine — is often much more terrifying than anything they might come up with. That minimalist approach also lends itself to resourceful, low-cost moviemaking; not for nothing is “Paranormal Activity” the most profitable film ever made. Writer-director-editor Ti West is part of that new breed of horror auteur, unafraid

to pay attention to such things as character development and cinematography in the middle of a scary movie. His last film, 2009’s “The House of the Devil,” was an homage to the babysitter-in-danger movies of the 1980’s, and his latest blends the haunted-hotel conceit with an honest-to goodness workplace comedy. Shot on location, “The Innkeepers” takes place at Torrington, Connecticut’s Yankee Pedlar Inn over its final weekend in business. The apathetic owner, we are reminded from time to time, is in Barbados, leaving the hotel in the care of its final two employees. Aimless 20something Claire (Sara Paxton, excellently wide-eyed) and her jaded co-worker Luke (the deadpan Pat Healy) are alternating 12-hour shifts, and when they’re not goofing around during their overlap, each takes a turn manning the audio equipment that they hope might record evidence of the Yankee Pedlar’s alleged ghost, a suicide victim from a hundred years ago. The inn’s last remaining guests include a creepy old guy who demands a room on the shuttered third floor, as well as TV-star-convenientlyturned-psychic Leanne Rease-Jones (it’s Kelly McGillis from “Top Gun”!). Leanne is the one who gets to utter the classic horror-movie warning about not going into the basement, which is, naturally, where everyone’s headed. West takes his time in parceling out the terror; most of the early jolts occur because we’re on edge and trying to steel ourselves for what’s to come. Just accept that West is firmly in control, and when he’s not ratcheting up the dread (with the able assistance of composer Jeff Grace’s sustained, Hitchcocky strings), he’s eavesdropping on a normal day at work, with random topics of conversation, inside jokes, and that weird intimacy that usually exists between those in the same trench. (That admittedly non-sequitur scene of Claire trying to get a heavy, leaking garbage

bag in the Dumpster is hilarious...and all too familiar.) West also achieves suspense thanks to deft POV tracking shots that limit our field of vision. That restraint reaches its apex during a trip to the basement, where only Claire can see the ghost and we’re left watching the fear on Luke’s face. But the double-edged sword for a horror filmmaker is you have to deliver a money shot eventually, and it will almost always be anticlimactic. (“The Blair Witch Project” remains a notable exception to this rule.) But forget the destination and enjoy the journey, with its technical elegance, comforting cliché (has anyone ever deployed an inhaler without it becoming a plot point?), and lived-in performances all around. Pat Healy, who you may remember from such arthouse favorites as “Great World of Sound” (and such brothers as former Dryden curator Jim Healy), will be on hand for Saturday evening’s screening. When I see documentaries like

“Spellbound” or “Wordplay,” I can’t help but wonder how the filmmakers decide which proverbial horses to bet on. In the case of “First Position,” perhaps director Bess Kargman went by personality; she follows six exceedingly likable young ballet dancers as they compete in the Youth America Grand Prix, which awards scholarships to prestigious schools or contracts with renowned companies. We meet, among others, 11-year-old Aran, who shows off both his foot stretcher and his BB gun, and we spend time with 14-year-old Michaela, an adoptee from Sierra Leone whose beauty-filled present stands in stark contrast to her horrifying beginnings. There’s nothing particularly groundbreaking about the film, and it seems to gloss over downsides like racism and anorexia, but it’s impossible not to get caught up in the passion of young artists chasing their dreams.

THE LONG DAY CLOSES

Friday, June 8, 8 p.m. & Sunday, June 10, 2 p.m. After the death of his brutal father, shy, daydreaming Bud (director Davies’s alter ego) comes of age in this continuation of the themes masterfully illuminated in Davies’s previous work. Here life’s small details — a mother’s favorite song, a hot cup of cocoa, a joyful trip to the cinema — are crafted into a sublime and personal evocation of time and place. (Terence Davies, UK 1993, 85 min.)

THE INNKEEPERS Movies for movie lovers, 6 nights a week. New 35mm print!

Saturday, June 9, 8 p.m. & Sunday, June 10, 5 p.m. Amateur ghost hunters (Sarah Paxton and Pat Healy) are determined to crack the Yankee Pedlar Inn’s supernatural secrets during its closing weekend. West’s follow-up to his acclaimed The House of the Devil shows him to be as adept at classical scare scenes as he is at character development. Healy will introduce the film and take questions from the audience afterwards. (Ti West, US 2011, 100 min.)

Hidden Gem in Monroe Neighborhood Enclave 37 Wilmer Street This year’s theme for National Preservation Month in May was “Discover America’s Hidden Gems,” a title that could easily apply to many of the historic houses that are tucked away in pleasant residential enclaves in Rochester. One of these local “hidden gems” is the house located at 37 Wilmer Street, just a few steps from the vibrant Monroe Avenue and the picturesque park mall on Oxford Street, with its clouds of magnolia blossoms each spring. Situated on a quiet street enhanced by beautiful front-yard gardens, this residence was the home of Rochester philanthropist Daisy Marquis Jones for many years. Built in 1910, the 2-1/2-story, Colonial Revival house is remarkable for the extensive original details and distinctive building materials that remain intact on both the exterior and interior. The pristine exterior features both Colonial Revival and Artsand-Crafts detailing, including diamond-edged shingles, curved brackets, bay windows, and a spacious front porch with decorative railings. Step inside to the cozy vestibule, with its original tile floor and Lincrusta Walton wall covering. This opens into the large reception area, with beautiful hardwood floors and original, varnished chestnut woodwork that comprises the main staircase, pocket doors, window seats and window and door surrounds throughout the house. The living room includes a wide bay window and window seat, wood burning fireplace with classically inspired wood mantel, and one of several distinctive stained glass windows seen throughout the home. With a

pair of chestnut pocket doors, the dining room also features a beamed ceiling with original light fixtures and distinctive alcove for a sideboard, above which is a lovely stained glass window. The kitchen has been sensitively renovated for modern living, but the adjacent pantry retains its historic wood cupboards, glass-fronted doors, and even the original ice box! With a wide landing lit by a large stained glass window, the main staircase is distinctive for its “split” design: one section leads to the kitchen, the other to the front hall. The second floor includes four spacious bedrooms with closets, a revitalized bathroom with original tub, and two linen closets. The large porch on the rear of the house provides a bird’s eye view of the neighborhood. The finished third floor includes new carpeting and a separate storage area. The distinctive landscaping on this attractive property features Japanese maple, smoke bush, tree peonies, and a wide variety of perennials. The 2,193 square foot house is situated on a 40’ x 125’ lot with an asking price of $172,500. Visit rochestercityliving.com/property/R181200 for more information. To see this lovely residence for yourself, contact Dawn Lambrix at Nothnagle Realtors at (585) 721-9370. by Cynthia Howk Cynthia is the Architectural Research Coordinator at The Landmark Society.

[ rehabilitating mr. wiggles ] BY neil swaab

[ news of the weird ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD

Compelling Explanations

Lame: (1) Madison County, Ind., council member David McCartney admitted to the Herald Bulletin newspaper in March that he had exchanged “sexually explicit” emails with a female official in another county but would not resign. In fact, he said, he had engaged in the exchanges not for hanky-panky but in order to “expose corruption.” He has not elaborated. (2) Chris Windham, 27, was charged with improperly photographing a 57-year-old man in a men’s room in Trinity, Texas, in March after Windham, using a stall, allegedly snapped a cellphone photo of the man standing at the adjacent urinal. Windham explained that typically he braces himself with one hand on the floor while he wipes himself, and this time the hand on the floor was holding his cellphone. — Maureen Raymond, 49, said her roadside DUI test administered in January was unfair. According to records cited by Scripps Media, she told a deputy in Port St. Lucie, Fla., that she couldn’t walk a straight line “with her big boobies,” which she said makes “balancing” difficult. The deputy reported that Raymond helpfully offered to show him the evidence but that he stopped her.

Things People Believe

— She is not the typical gullible victim. Ms. Priti Mahalanobis is a college-educated mother of two who ran a franchised restaurant in Avalon Park, Fla., near Orlando, but when her health, her brother’s marriage and her business experienced problems, she bought a $20 psychic reading from “Mrs. Starr” (also known as Peaches Stevens). The Orlando

Sentinel reported in January that, over the next seven months, Mahalanobis lost about $135,000 in cash, jewelry and gift cards to Mrs. Starr. Astonishingly, neither Mahalanobis’ health nor her restaurant business noticeably improved! Among the remedies that Mahalanobis accepted: buying seven tabernacles ($19,000 each) to “vanquish (her family’s) negativity” and putting $100 bills and a piece of paper with her relatives’ names written on it under her mattress along with a grapefruit (which, as everyone knows, attracts and then isolates the evil).

Things Leaders Believe

— Though recently elected Councillor Simon Parkes told the Scarborough Evening News in March that his work on the Whitby (England) Town Council would not be affected, he has famously (in a YouTube video) reported lifelong “horrific” invasive encounters with extra-terrestrials, including many visits from a 9-foot-tall, green “mother”like being who sends him “messages” through his eyes, down his optic nerve to his brain. — Arni Johnsen, a member of Iceland’s Parliament, survived a serious 2010 automobile crash -- a stroke of good fortune he has since attributed to a family of elves (three generations, in fact, according to an “elf specialist”) who live in a boulder near the crash site. Iceland’s Morgunbladid newspaper reported that Johnsen recently had the 30-ton boulder relocated to his own property, which he said affords the elves a better view than at their previous home. (Another elf “authority” told reporters, however, that relocating the family was bound to bring Johnsen bad luck.)

[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 29 ]

[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your flirtatious style will attract interesting-yet-serious partners who aren’t likely to joke about relationships. If you detect someone is more into you and you don’t plan to reciprocate, set him or her free before it’s too late. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Practicality coupled with quality will attract someone who has similar values; however, make sure that whomever you choose can bring an equal amount to the relationship so you don’t end up feeling used. Empty promises can leave you getting the short end of the stick.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Passion won’t be a problem, but hooking up with someone who is possessive and overly aggressive can lead to a situation that is difficult to handle. Take note: If someone is hanging on to you too tightly, move on quickly before it’s too late. CANCER (June 21-July 22): When it comes to love, secrets will be a problem. Don’t settle for halftruths or someone evading important issues. Ask questions and get to the bottom of any problem that develops between you and someone you love before it leads to an unnecessary argument.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t let an old flame confuse you. Remembering the past will help you realize what you’ve got going now and what direction you should take when it comes to love, commitment and your future. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Get out, meet people, have some fun — but don’t slip into a relationship with someone because it’s easy. You can do better than what’s being offered, and you should continue to follow your dreams, strive to reach your goals and explore new interests. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ll attract someone special

if you attend events or activities that interest you. Don’t let someone demanding or trying to dump responsibilities in your lap hold you back when it comes to being a participant and finding love. Travel and communication will lead to romance. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): A change of heart may cost you financially. Proceed with caution if someone you are attached to plays mind games with you. Don’t share private information that might incriminate you. Take a wait-and-see approach when it comes to love.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’re hot and extremely changeable when it comes to relationships and what you think you want. Love is highlighted, but honesty will be the problem that keeps cropping up when it comes to making a commitment. Don’t promise what you cannot deliver. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t let temptation overcome you. Mixing business with pleasure will not end well. Your serious attitude will attract someone who is demanding and looking to be taken care of financially. Don’t be fooled by the affection you are showered with -- it’s just a lure.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You can turn heads with your dynamic personality and outlook regarding love, romance, experimentation and what you want out of a relationship. Keep talking and before you know it you will be engaged in a one-on-one connection that will lead to unique commitment. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll attract the wrong type of individual. Neediness will start to show as well as the multitude of differences you have from the person to whom you are trying to conform. Don’t be a chameleon or pursue someone who is mirroring you. Disillusionment is apparent.
