The benefits of traditional marriage

I am writing to express my support for marriage between one man and one woman. The fundamental building block of all civilizations is the family, which provides a foundation for a strong social structure in society. The foundation of the family is the institution of marriage between one man and one woman. Traditional marriage is unquestionably good for individuals, communities, and society. A healthy society is comprised of healthy families where a man and a woman are devoted to each other and are conceiving, bearing, and raising children. There are numerous benefits of traditional marriage that are welldocumented. In general, people that are married live longer lives, spend less time in the hospital, earn higher incomes, and enjoy greater emotional support. The benefits to children are very important as well. Children raised by both their mother and father are less likely to live in poverty or drop out of school. They are more likely to finish college, and they are also at lower risk for becoming sexually active in their teen years. Having raised three children of my own, I can tell you with certainty that my husband and I were able to help our children in unique ways because we were different. A father  City

and mother contribute different things to a child, both of which are essential to the child’s well-being. Children raised by both biological parents are better off than those who are not. While I recognize that there are cases where this is impossible, such as the death of the parent, it should be the goal of all of us to strive to give children what is best for them. I hope that our senators and assemblymen will consider the welfare of our children and future generations and support marriage between one man and one woman. DEBBIE SPAULDING, SPENCERPORT

From our website On our blog supporting a same-sex marriage bill:

Ultimately it’s not going to matter which states write discrimination against law-abiding, taxpaying gay couples into their constitutions, nor will it matter which states grant marriage equality, because it is the federal government that bestows most of the legal benefits, protections, and responsibilities that married couples receive. This is an issue that the Supreme Court will eventually have to tackle, and I’m confident that they will decided that there is no Constitutional justification for denying gay couples the same legal benefits that straight couples have always taken for granted. The main sticking point is the so-called Defense of Marriage Act, which was signed, to his eternal shame, by President Bill Clinton. DOMA is transparently unconstitutional, since it establishes differing legal standards for gay and straight couples. It would be preferable if Congress would simply repeal DOMA, but as cowardly as most of our elected officials seem to be, it will probably be up to the Supreme Court to declare DOMA unconstitutional. Consider: A straight couple legally married in Iowa is automatically enti-

tled to 1,138 legal benefits, protections, and responsibilities according to the Government Accounting Office. Many of those benefits have to do with tax law, Social Security, inheritance rights, child custody, and so on. But because of DOMA, a gay couple that is legally married in Iowa is still unrecognized by the federal government for those benefits. Consider, also, the “Full Faith and Credit” clause of the Constitution. Because of this, any straight couple can fly off to Las Vegas for a drunken weekend, get married by an Elvis impersonator, and that marriage is automatically honored in all 50 states, and at all levels of government. But thanks to DOMA, a gay couple that is legally married in Iowa becomes un-married if they relocate south to Missouri. The only real difference between a married gay couple and a married straight couple is the gender of the two people who have made the commitment. It has nothing to do with procreation, since couples do not need a marriage license to make babies, nor is the ability or even desire to make babies a prerequisite for obtaining a marriage license. So there is really no constitutional justification for denying law-abiding, taxpaying gay couples the same legal benefits, protections, and responsibilities that married straight couples have always taken for granted. This cannot be accomplished in a piecemeal, state-by-state fashion; it is the federal government which, through its own actions, has made this a federal issue. I encourage all gay couples to file suit to have DOMA overturned. Gay Americans have had it up to here with being treated like second-class citizens. CHUCK ANZIULEWICZ

On our June 8 article on the Rochester school district, “Eyes on Education”: My daughter went

to city schools and has

done well with her life, so I am a CSD supporter. But trotting out the super kids as illustrative of the district is deceiving. As a mentor of students in the district, I have seen what happens to the kids who are not the smartest, the super achievers, or the behavior problems. They go to school — even the non-IB portion of the Wilson institution — and then float through the day with no one taking any notice of them. They don’t cause trouble. They don’t ace tests. Because they are in the building they are considered in attendance even if they don’t go to class. And when they get to MCC because everyone tells them they have to go to college, they can’t read or write. Not everyone needs to go to college, but the school district continues to sell that dream, when certain skilled labor jobs continue to go unfilled. If we can begin to manage expectations, it could go a long way toward giving some kids a start to an independent life. Talk to some of those average students for the next story. KATH

Look at the problems illuminated by this article: poverty, lower expectations, systemic racism ingrained in the system (not the people), high rates of special ed/emotionally disturbed students, few role models of success in the daily non-school lives of the students. Most of this is well beyond the scope of what teachers can do. The things teachers can do are things that will garner us negative reviews from our administration: • Sending out every bad kid who acts up and distracts. • Holding high expectations and issuing a failing grade for those who fail to achieve it. I agree with the article’s findings that failure and holding back kids limits graduation. But we cannot just use this statistic to allow social promotions

and lowering of standards. We must be willing to let a couple of years of kids work through that indignity and succeed or fail as we ratchet up expectations to a level equivalent to the highest performing suburban schools. This would require a tremendous force of will and a heartbreaking willingness to watch kids fail, but these short-term agonies would serve the long-term future of our community and its children far better than the current system of low expectations and limited real achievement. At the moment, any diploma with RCSD printed on it is suspect. The 5 percent number isn’t going anywhere soon with superficial “reforms” and tweaking the edges. YUGOBOY

On our review of the Ray LaMontagne - Pariah Dogs concert at CMAC: I’ve

been going to shows at FLPAC / CMAC for 30 years, and I’m not thrilled by the changes I’ve seen. The venue used to be very music oriented and less commercial. Parking in the main lot was free, and there was one beer concession. Now, in addition to the several concession stands, vendors walk through the shell hawking beer. This of course leads to more drunks talking loudly and acting foolishly, and ruining the show for many of us. I’m not sure I will go back to CMAC. Even in my younger partying days, I never understood people spending good money on a show and then talking / partying through it and not only missing the show, but ruining the experience for the folks around them.

urban journal | by mary anna towler

Dreading this year’s election campaign Are we past the point where vision matters in Greater Rochester? Does it no longer make sense to propose big ideas? The fall election campaigns will kick into high gear pretty soon. And although I usually look forward to local elections, I’m eyeing this one with a heavy heart. It’s just hard to imagine that this fall’s election outcome will change much of anything. I doubt we’ll hear anything new from anybody. I doubt we’ll find much creativity or vision among the candidates — or, if we do, that the creativity and vision will lead anywhere. Among the offices on the ballot are county executive, all County Legislature seats, four of the seven seats on the Rochester school board, and four of the nine Rochester City Council seats. These are not insignificant offices. But look at what’s ahead: The races for county executive and County Legislature should be exciting; Maggie Brooks and her administration have given Democrats plenty of ammunition. But as long as the Republicans promise not to raise taxes, voters seem to ignore things like the Airport Authority scandal. And the Republicans’ money-raising dominance will ensure that their message overwhelms the Democrats’. Besides, even if the Democrats raise enough money to run a strong campaign, what will they talk about, besides the scandals? Our problems are just stupefying: a sluggish economy; enormous government costs compounded by state mandates and a fear of taxes; no population growth; a serious loss of talented young adults…. Somebody ought to talk about the need to raise taxes, to make up for the years in which county leaders cut them, despite rising costs. But nobody — no Democrat, no Republican — is willing to do that. Somebody ought to talk about consolidating governments — but nobody will. Somebody ought to talk about regional planning — but nobody will. Somebody ought to talk about eliminating the tax incentives we give to businesses that just move from one place in the county to another. Maybe the Democrats will bring this up, but if they do, I’d bet that voters will give it a big fat yawn.

I doubt we’ll find much creativity or vision among the candidates — or, if we do, that they’ll lead anywhere.”

Sadly, while the school board race is crucial, and this one could be fiery, I don’t see much hope here, either. The candidates will dispute this, but I’d almost guarantee that little will change. The forces against change are strong. And the school district can’t solve the enormous challenges of urban public schools by itself, even though the public expects it to. As for City Council: The city is trapped, with mounting costs and little way to cope with them other than cutting services and competing with its suburbs for new development. All we can expect of Council, then, is good oversight of the mayor and his administration. The most visionary Council members in the world would do us little good. We do have one vision success story for inspiration: the Jazz Festival, currently drawing a dizzying mass of people downtown every afternoon. Every year, as I join people standing in line for more than an hour to get into performances, and as I thread my way down Gibbs Street surrounded by a mob of happy, dancing people of every age, I feel a little spurt of hope. The festival is Greater Rochester as a real community. And it is proof that we really can do something big, that people can come up with big ideas and actually pull them off. But the festival lasts only nine days. It won’t convince young people to stay here if there are no jobs. It won’t overcome the divisiveness that our political parties and geographic boundaries have created. It won’t bring new industry to the region. And it won’t overcome the low expectations and the lethargy that all of this has bred. And so my question: Are we past the point where vision matters in Rochester and Monroe County?

Wegmans gets OK

Budget gap is real

Wegmans can move forward with plans for its new East Avenue store, thanks to approval from the city’s Zoning Board. The approval is contingent on a few minor conditions, including changing the size of some windows. The Zoning Board withheld its approval last month, asking for more design changes.

An independent audit of the city school district’s projected budget gap confirms what administration officials have been saying all along: the $76.5-million gap in the 2011-2012 budget is real, according to Buffalobased Lumsden & McCormick. Rochester Teachers Association President Adam Urbanski first called for the independent audit.

Lightfoot takes plea

Faucette to lead Syracuse schools

Monroe County Legislator Willie Joe Lightfoot pleaded guilty to misdemeanor driving while intoxicated. Other charges, including disorderly conduct and second-degree obstructing governmental administration, were dropped as a condition of the plea deal. Lightfoot will have to pay a fine, perform community service, and attend a victim-impact panel. Lightfoot says he took the plea only to keep his city firefighter job and that he’s innocent.

State plans changes at Industry

The State Office of Children and Family Services plans to close the Industry Secure Center and downsize the Industry Limited Secure Center, two juvenile justice facilities in Rush. Few other details were released.

Kim Dyce Faucette, the city school district’s chief of staff, has been chosen to head the North Syracuse Central School District. Faucette’s departure will leave the district without a senior-level operations administrator, since Vargas fired Deputy Superintendent John Scanlan.

Republican challengers emerge for City Council

Republicans Andreas Rau and Rich Tyson will challenge sitting City Council members Carla Palumbo and Elaine Spaull, respectively, this fall. Palumbo represents the northwest district and Spaull, the east district. A press release sent by Rau’s campaign manager says that the city is headed in the wrong direction and that City Council members are not listening to their constituents.

‘Mushroom house’ is on the market When architectural historian Jean France took her students on tours of 142 Park Road in Perinton, she had a “no giggling” rule. The ‘mushroom house,’ as it’s popularly known, has drawn a mix of curiosity, laughter, and cult-like adoration since it was built in 1970. It has recently been listed for sale, with an asking price of $1.1 million. Equal parts fantasy and function, the mushroom house looks like a collaboration between Hobbit author J.R.R. Tolkien and the 1960’s comic space-dwellers the Jetsons. With roofs that look like meringue peaks, the pod-like living quarters

seem to sprout from the earth with otherworldliness. “It was a difficult thing to achieve, but it’s a wonder to behold,” France says. The home, situated in a hollow near Powder Mills Park, was designed by architect James H. Johnson for his clients, Robert and Marguerite Antell. Johnson says the wildflower Queen Anne’s Lace was his inspiration for designing the four 80-ton pods and a balcony set on concrete and steel “stems.” The interior is just as animated as the exterior. Rooms are free-form with ceilings that look like the ribbed

underside of the wildflower. The intricate use of tile gives some rooms an underwater treasure-box charm, but it’s the calming treetop views that keep the design from becoming too fanciful. The property’s unique design would be difficult to re-create today, Johnson says. “The ‘60’s and 70’s were very different than today,” he says. “It was a time of great hope and freedom.” The mushroom house was designated a Perinton landmark in 1989.

Cost of War “We’ve seen childhood hunger definitely increase over the last two years. We know that summer is a time of serious food insecurity for a lot of children. They are unsure of when and where their next meal will come from.” [ JULIA TEDESCO ]

HUNGER | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

MARRIAGE EQUALITY | BY CHRIS FIEN AND JEREMY MOULE

Need for summer meals increases Nearly all of the city school district’s 32,000 students receive free or reduced-priced meals while school is in session. But during summer vacation months, nutritious meals become frighteningly scarce for thousands of students. Childhood hunger, particularly during the summer months, is a serious concern nationally and locally. About 30,000 Rochester city school students are eligible for the Summer Food Service Program, but only about 6,000 participated last summer. The SFSP is designed to eliminate childhood hunger. The city school district, the city, and Foodlink are the local SFSP meal site coordinators, and each organization distributes meals to a group of sites. All three organizations are trying to increase awareness about SFSP so more students participate. “We’ve seen childhood hunger definitely increase over the last two years,” says Julia Tedesco, a spokesperson with regional food bank Foodlink. “We know that summer is a time of serious food insecurity for a lot of children. They are unsure of when and where their next meal will come from.” Many students exhibit signs of malnutrition when they return to school in the fall, officials say. Foodlink served about 2,200 city school students last summer, and Tedesco expects that

number to surpass 3,000 this year at about 70 sites. The school district will provide meals to 30 sites for both summer school and citysponsored sites, says Dave Brown, the district’s food service director. Last summer, the district served about 4,000 students, but Brown says he expects to serve about 8,500 students this year. The SFSP also helps to keep kids in a safe, structured environment. In many locations, nutritious meals are coupled with academic or athletic programs. The program is funded by the US Department of Agriculture and administered through local government agencies and nonprofits. The summer meal sites are usually located in low-income neighborhoods. Children age 18 and under are eligible for a free meal, and parents looking for a nearby site can call the Summer Food Hotline at 1-800-522-5006.

So close The developments have come fast and faster this week and New York is the closest it has ever come to passing marriage-equality legislation. | Governor Andrew Cuomo introduced the legislation in the State Assembly and Senate on Tuesday afternoon. | The big news earlier in the week was that Republican State Senator Jim Alesi now supports the legislation. Alesi voted “no” in 2009, setting the stage for a unanimous chorus of “no” votes from the GOP side, which killed the bill. | In a television appearance on Monday, Alesi said his 2009 vote was political and that he regretted it. He’s now voting from his heart, he said. | It was also announced on Monday that three Democrats who previously opposed marriage-equality legislation are now on board. They are: Joseph Addabbo, Carl Kruger, and Shirley Huntley. So as of Tuesday morning, New York was two votes shy of having the necessary votes in the Senate. The Assembly bill will almost assuredly pass. | Meanwhile, some opponents of marriage equality are threatening primaries of Republican senators who support the legislation.

DEVELOPMENT | BY JEREMY MOULE

Tardiness will cost Congel Medley Centre developer Scott Congel has blown an important deadline: according to his tax-abatement agreement, Congel was supposed to have invested $90 million into the project by April 7. The agreement is between Congel, the county, the Town of Irondequoit, and the East Irondequoit school district. Local officials say they don’t know how much Congel has invested, but it’s not enough. Congel’s explanations to COMIDA officials have dealt more with spending commitments than actual spending, says Judy Seil, the agency’s executive director. “Nobody who looks at that project can believe he’s invested $90 million,” says John Abbott, deputy superintendent of the East Irondequoit School District. The building looks roughly the same as it did when it was closed to the public in 2009. That leaves the three governments with decisions to make, and everyone involved is in a tough spot. Officials don’t have evidence of progress to show an increasingly skeptical

public, and Congel now owes the three governments a penalty payment for missing the April 7 deadline. (The penalty will be erased if Congel does prove he invested $90 million by the deadline.) That investment target was established in a payment-in-lieu-of-taxes agreement approved by the parties in 2009, which grants Congel substantial property tax breaks, but also guarantees tax income for the governments. The agreement included three specific milestones meant to tie the tax breaks to specific investment. The $90-million investment was the first milestone. The next two milestones are also tied to Congel’s level of investment: next year he needs to have put a total of $160 million into the project, and $260 million the year after that. Missing the first deadline means Congel owes a supplemental payment — essentially a fine — to the town, school district, and county. The amount will depend on when or if Congel proves he did make the investment, but it would range from several hundredthousand dollars to more than $1 million. The formula for determining the payment is written into the agreement. Congel could have requested one of the two six-month extensions he’s entitled to via the agreement, but he didn’t and local officials say they don’t know why. Attempts to reach Congel’s attorney were unsuccessful. Congel has proposed

transforming the dead mall into a multiuse complex with apartments, offices, retail, hotel, and a large movie theater. But the project has progressed little, if at all, since the PILOT agreement was settled. One of the most troubling aspects is the funding: Congel has estimated the project will cost $260 million or more, but officials say he hasn’t secured that money.

He had funding lined up when he signed the PILOT, but the struggling economy caused the bank to withdraw its offer. Irondequoit and COMIDA officials say they believe that continuing economic sluggishness is the main reason why Congel hasn’t been able to line up funding. Congel made agreed-upon payments to the governments either late or at the last minute, and his firm, Bersin Properties, has been sued by contractors for the Medley Centre project who alleged Congel owed them money. (At least one of the lawsuits has been settled.) The irony is, the PILOT agreement was meant to discourage Congel from letting the property and the project stagnate. That’s the purpose of the clauses that require extra payments if Congel misses investment or jobcreation targets. “It seems to me that the county and the town cut a pretty tough deal with Congel,” says Kent Gardner, president of the Center for Governmental Research, which has studied area economic development trends and practices. The punitive supplemental payment will come due in January, which is when Congel is supposed to submit the next PILOT payment, says the school district’s Abbott. That extra obligation could mark the start of

a messy domino effect. If Congel misses the January payment — either some or all of the regular payment and the supplemental payment — then the town, school district, and county have the option to terminate the PILOT agreement. A revoked PILOT would put Congel on the hook for the property’s full taxes, which would be no small sum. If he can’t afford the taxes or doesn’t pay them in full, the governments can file liens, and foreclosure could be an eventual, though unlikely, option For example: the City of Rochester has substantial liens against the Sibley Building, which is owned by a Wilmorite sub-corporation that’s millions of dollars behind in taxes. The city hasn’t foreclosed, however, because then the city would own the building and be responsible for the cost of security, upkeep, and insurance. For similar reasons, the governments involved in the Medley Centre deal would be reluctant to take over the mall. “We’re kind of held hostage on something we’re not prepared to develop,” says Irondequoit Supervisor Mary Joyce D’Aurizio.

Regional planning — more specifically the

lack of it — has a role in this problem, too, as do regional economic development policies. Irondequoit Mall, the old name for Medley Centre, was built by Wilmorite to attract eastside shoppers. It worked for a while, but any chance the mall had at longterm success was crushed by misperceptions about crime and by Wilmorite’s decisions to expand its other shopping centers. The retail boom in Webster was salt in the wound. The local market for retail space isn’t improving. The region’s population hasn’t grown, yet new stores keep opening and other spaces — old and new — sit empty. The Rochester region’s retail vacancy has steadily increased since 2005, and right now the rate is 12.6 percent, says a commercial real estate market report from the firm C.B. Richard Ellis. The Rochester area is “over-retailed,” CGR’s Gardner says. Rochester’s retail, residential, and officespace glut could be a factor in Congel’s financing difficulties. It’s a simple equation from a bank’s perspective: if he can’t fill the space, then he can’t collect rent. Without rent income, he’ll find it harder to pay back a loan. And the reality is that even if Congel secures financing and opens Lake Ridge Centre — the new name he’s given the property — the area’s retail over saturation may hinder the project’s viability, tax breaks or not. That’s a problem since conventional wisdom holds that the mall is vital to the overall success of the East Ridge Road commercial corridor. “The property doesn’t stand alone,” Abbott says.

Linking skills to careers

Pointing to the Finger [ ROUND-UP ] BY DAYNA PAPALEO

There’s just not enough time for a vacation. The depressing word “staycation” makes you cringe. So how about a daycation? Remember that the magnificent Finger Lakes are right in your backyard. Or perhaps it’s in your front yard; I honestly don’t know which way your house faces. My point is that daycationers can find a great deal of unfamiliar diversion and beauty very close to home, along with enough good food to have you chomping through those glacier-etched digits like a locavore Pac-Man. But there are almost too many options for fun, so why not decide upon a restaurant, then explore the area around it? Below you’ll find some tasty starting points. Now, this is in no way meant to be a complete list of Finger Lakes eateries. So if you’d like to share your favorite, comment on this article in the Restaurants section at rochestercitynewspaper.com. Ever seen that mysterious sticker of a redspotted fish wearing a crown? It means that a lucky someone has experienced Maxie’s Supper Club, a New Orleans-style fish house sitting in the middle of Ithaca. Maxie’s serves up Southern staples like barbecue, jambalaya, and po’ boys, keeping the vegetarians in mind with meatless versions of each. Don’t miss the daily happy hour, which features freshly shucked oysters and clams for half-price. And while you’re tooling around Cayuga Lake, check out the nearby Museum of the Earth and learn a little about those fascinating bivalves before they slither down your throat. Maxie’s is located at 635 W.

State St., Ithaca. Entrees range from $10.50 to $22.50. For more information call 607272-4136 or visit maxies.com. “Local,” “sustainable,” and “seasonal” are not just buzzy lip service at Scott Signori’s Stonecat Café on the east side of Seneca Lake, the largest of the Finger Lakes. A rustic, funky space housed in a former fruit stand, the Stonecat Café’s menu is largely organic, sourced from nearby farmers, and complemented by a wine list that reflects the fruitful neighborhood. Signori smokes his own meat, poultry, fish, and vegetables, showcasing them in such dishes as tender pulled pork and maple-juniper sausage, as well as in such glasses as a smoked heirloom tomato Bloody Mary. Liquor aficionados ought to travel down the road a piece to the tasting room at Finger Lakes Distilling, where they conjure up craft spirits as varied as grappa and corn whiskey. Stonecat Café is located at 5315 Route 414 in Hector. Entrees range from $15 to $26. For more information call 607-546-5000 or visit stonecatcafe.com. A heuriger (pronounced hoy-rig-er) could be described as the Viennese equivalent of the better-known tapas bar: guests order a variety of little plates a la carte and nibble happily between sips of local wines. Dano’s Heuriger on Seneca claims to be the first such establishment on American shores, occupying a gorgeously airy building with a faith-affirming view of Seneca Lake. Chef Dano Hutnik offers customary Austrian fare like pork schnitzel and that luscious Liptauer cheese spread, as well as an array of salads, charcuterie, and a nicely priced wine list

heavy on the locals. Come to think of it, both Lamoreaux Landing and Wagner vineyards are right up the street. Dano’s Heuriger is located at 9564 Route 414 in Lodi. Entrees range from $10.95 to $14.95. For more information call 607-582-7555 or visit danosonseneca.com. You might not find Rio Tomatlan unless you were really looking for it; tucked away on a side street off of Canandaigua’s main drag, this cozy Mexican restaurant distinguishes itself with walls full of vivid art and an equally eye-popping selection of tequilas, most too nuanced to bury in a mere margarita. Sure, you can find traditional favorites like tacos, mole, and ceviche, but Chef Rafael Guevara’s pozole, a soup with pork and hominy, is a standout; sometimes it’s the spicy red guajillo pepper base, though if the stars align for you, it’ll be the subtle but complex tomatillo-jalapeño version. Why not stop here before your class at the New York Wine and Culinary Center? And maybe on the way back, too? Rio Tomatlan is located 5 Beeman St. in Canandaigua. Entrees range from $8 to $17. For more information call 394-9380 or visit riotomatlan.com. As daycations go, there are few jaunts lovelier than Trumansburg, home to Jonah and Christina McKeough’s Hazelnut Kitchen. Like any restaurant worth its salt, the menu changes frequently to reflect what’s fresh and abundant at that particular time, taking advantage of its proximity to the acres and acres of small farms in the area. As I write this the selections include chilled pea soup, shaved asparagus salad, and in-season soft-shell crabs,

as well as a heavenly selection of desserts. (Does anything sound more summery than lemon-lavender pound cake with ginger syrup and lemon sorbet? Nope.) And you can’t visit T-burg without grabbing a couple pounds of Gimme! Coffee and stopping off at majestic Taughannock Falls, the tallest free-falling waterfall east of the Mississippi. Hazelnut Kitchen is located at 53 E. Main St., Trumansburg. Entrees range from $13 to $20. For more information call 607-387-4433 or visit hazelnutkitchen.com. Yeah, you can get fried chicken and ice cream in Rochester, but somehow those treats are crispier and creamier (respectively, of course) when you’re away from home. Housed in a retro, blocky building bursting with charming kitsch, Seneca Farms divides itself into two sections: on one side you have to make a decision amongst the frozen custards, like pistachio and brownie batter, churned on site, while the other tempts you with roadside attractions like their famous beer-battered fried chicken, served with all the fixins. And if you happen to daycate to Penn Yan on a Saturday, poke around The Windmill Farm and Craft Market, selling fruits and veggies, plus all kinds of handmade thingamajigs that you didn’t even know you needed. Seneca Farms is located at 108 W. Lake Road in Penn Yan. Entrees range from $4.95 to $8.95. For more information call 315-536-4066. Oh! Don’t forget that while you shouldn’t have any reservations about travel, it never hurts to make one.

Lonely Boys is made up of three brothers who burn up the blues with a severe Ray Vaughan- and Gallagherinfused heat. The band’s self-produced new album, “Rockpango,” is stuffed with guitarist Henry Garza’s incendiary Strat work and the whole outfit’s funky jam and three-part vocals. This one isn’t just for the guitar nuts, but for those who just want to get down as well.

It was after hearing the music of the Reverend Gary Davis that Kaukonen really dove into finger style guitar — a style that gave unique color to his electric playing. He runs the Fur Peace Ranch, a music and guitar camp in southeast Ohio, and continues to tour with Hot Tuna. Barry Mitterhoff also performs. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

Dispatches from the Jazz Blog, Pt. 1 [ REVIEW ] BY PALOMA CAPANNA, FRANK DE BLASE, AND RON NETSKY

When I left the Natalie Cole concert Friday night, the first friend I ran into asked, “Was she OK?” Over the past few years when Cole’s been in the news it’s been about her kidney transplant. So people wonder. But Cole was way more than OK; she was phenomenal. Looking largerthan-life, with jewels all over her tall, thin body, she was in command of Kodak Hall from start to finish. Cole wisely divided her set into two distinct parts, saving her own hits for the end. During the first half of the show she established her jazz cred with standard after standard sung with superb inflection, phrasing and verve. From there she proceeded to her own career, transitioning with her jazzy hit, “Mr. Melody.” Soon after came “I’ve Got Love On My Mind,” and another great tune, “This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)” closed the show. (RN) Not every female in jazz is a chanteuse or a femme fatale. It’s just that we tend to romanticize their appearance and efforts. But nobody does it when it’s some old gargoyle in a sharkskin suit. So if you closed your eyes, Tia Fuller’s throaty saxophone would have hit you low and hit you mean, like the old gargoyles do. Open them up and see a beautiful woman chopping it hot and sweet and, well, that’s

an extra treat. Fuller’s approach during her early set at Max at Eastman Place Friday night was theoretically sound with dalliances in and around the core melody. It didn’t get too nuts, or maybe it did, and Fuller drove it so slick, nobody got that old Coltrane vertigo. (FD) Saturday night I caught the Fab Faux at Kodak Hall at Eastman Theater. The floor was rumbling as the five band members rocked the house with Beatles tunes like “Back in the USSR,” “Dear Prudence,” and “Help.” But here’s the thing: where is the artistry in driving every Beatles song with a hard pulse and a forte amp? For “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,” as John Lennon sang “Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes and she’s gone,” there was an airy vocal that pulled back on tempo to enhance what you knew was coming: the downbeat. By accelerating into the line, Fab Faux missed an opportunity to use variations in tempo and dynamic to enhance the impact of louder passages.

Music Orbison’s “Crying” and Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” virtually branding them as her own. She makes it look easy, but lang admits it can be a bit harrowing. “Yeah it’s always daunting,” she says. “Even if it’s not a song of great magnitude, any sort of interpretive work is daunting. It’s about really examining why the song means something to you, creating its own vignette or cinematic imagery in your mind, or subtext in your mind. I think it has to stem from a real relationship, a real chemical reaction to the song. And if you have a relationship, a purpose, a clear motivation, it makes it easier.” Except when tackling Joni Mitchell. “I think Joni Mitchell is the hardest person to cover. Because I think that her lyrics and her melodies are so intrinsically aligned. Just the way Joni delivers the lyric and the melody that she chooses, that it’s almost impossible to deconstruct it…and you end up sounding like Joni without changing the melody drastically.” Lang and the band wrote all the tunes on

Legendary singer k.d. lang often gets categorized as a singer of melancholy songs. But she considers her music “about sort of a reality and openness…very positive,” she says. PHOTO PROVIDED

Lang’s not lonesome k.d. lang Thursday, June 16 Part of the 2011 Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre, 26 Gibbs St. 8 p.m. | $55-$90 | rochesterjazz.com [ PROFILE ] By Frank De Blase

K.d. lang’s voice hovers in the twilight somewhere between heartache and desire. I pointed this out to her on the phone when she called for an interview a few weeks ago. I threw out words like lonesome, longing, and mournful before settling on ethereal. Yeah, ethereal. That’s it. Lang (who prefers her name to be represented in all lowercase) finally chimed in. “I’m kind of glad you sorted that out,” she said. “Because people always say ‘lonesome,’ and to me it’s not lonesome at all. To me, it’s a kind of openness, an understanding of impermanence. I guess people just misread my music as lonesome and longing, and it’s really just about sort of a reality and openness… very positive.” Despite what the artist says, there still is a little bitter in the 12 City JUNE 15-21, 2011

sweet to tug at the strings. After all, let’s not forget her monster hit, “Constant Craving.” K.d. lang and the Siss Boom Bang has a new CD out called “Sing It Loud.” This is the first time since her revved-up country days with the Reclines that lang has worked with her own band. “When I put this band together in the studio we recorded eight songs in three days,” she says. “It just became apparent that their sound was so much a part of this record that I had to call it ‘k.d. lang and the Siss Boom Bang.’” The Siss Boom Bang is lang’s road band as well. Lang began as a honky-tonk upstart in Alberta, Canada, playing twang-tastic classic country and revved-up honky-tonk with an unbridled enthusiasm. She released her first album, “A Truly Western Experience,” in 1984. Deemed irreverent by country fans, lang’s take was in reality more country than anything on the radio at the time. Perhaps they took issue with the whole lesbian-vegetarian thing, or her music’s punk-ish, cocky stance. But there was no denying those pipes. At the heart of the hoedown hijinks was lang’s voice, with its elastic range, creamy tone, power, and seduction. Once listeners got past

the fringe and the androgyny and gave her a chance, they were treated to what has become one of the finest crooners of this generation. A testament to this is “Shadowland,” her 1988 collaboration with countrypolitan studio wizard, Owen Bradley. “Shadowland” is an absolutely exquisite collection steeped in that aforementioned lonesome sound. I mean, ethereal. Whatever, it’s beautiful. The following album, “Absolute Torch And Twang,” went on to earn lang a Grammy in 1989. Over the years, after more than a dozen records

to her credit, lang has drifted from country, and could be considered out of the genre’s loop entirely were it not for the steel guitar. “I guess that would depend upon who’s listening,” she says. “If a real country fan is listening they would think I’ve never made a return to country or that I’ve abandoned country. And then some people think I’m too country… I don’t know. I think country music is definitely a part of my DNA, and I think it’s always in there. My favorite instrument is the steel guitar. I always put steel guitar in, even if I’m doing jazz.” She has flirted with pop and jazz, and has also tackled iconic standards like Roy

the new CD. Though the material is fresh and sticks its fingers in different pies, it’s still textbook k.d. lang. She is aware that musicians who enter the studio with her may already have a notion of her sound: flat-out country rockers and ballads that Roy Orbison never wrote on one hand, and that certain earthy, gentle magic that is usually reserved for lullabies on the other. “Hopefully they bring in a lot of themselves,” lang says. “But maybe it’s a combination of things, maybe I attract certain musicians, or maybe my music extrudes that out of musicians. The writing just came together. I mean, I had a vision of how I wanted the record to feel and the essence of it, and we just carved it out over a period of time.” “It really was so easy to make this record,” she says. “I think just the convergence of the people and the conditions, the musicians… we were all on the same page. We have a collective mindset and energy and positivity; love and respect for the music and each other. I mean, it happens, but in my 28 years in the music business I have to say this is the most creative and magical experience I’ve had. It was way beyond my expectations.” Simply put, the new album is a rock record. And lang refers to this period in her career as her “rock phase.” “For the last 10 years,” she says. “I was really studying my vocal approach and the emotional subtleties of the voice, and the crooning style. Before that it was pop. And before that it was my torch and twang days. I would have to say this is a more rock period…or Americana.” But not lonesome. “No,” she says. “Unpretentious, soulful, and uplifting.”

RESTAURANT GUIDE www.rochestercitynewspaper.com

Paola’s Burrito Place Mexican Grill

Hip-Hop | Digable Planets

Back in the 90’s, bands like Digable Planets blended the poetry of hip-hop with jazz grooves and created a new genre, acid jazz. At that time, the genre provided a cool alternative to gangsta rap and allowed jazz and hip-hop to flourish in a way that invoked comparisons to the Beat Generation. Along with artists like France’s MC Solaar, Digable Planets were arguably among the best of the bunch. Unfortunately, the group disbanded due to creative differences far too soon, nearly at the height of its popularity. Digable Planets reformed in 2005, although original member Mary Ann “Ladybug Mecca” Vieira is no longer with the band. Filthy Funk and U.G.O. Crew open.

ROOTS ROCK | Zach Deputy

Zach Deputy, a singer-songwriter from South Carolina, has been gaining speed in the underground-jam scene with a harrowing stage act, much like Keller Williams’s electronic-loop-enhanced solo symphony. But Deputy definitely has his own sound, positing performances that look like a one-man dance party powered with what he calls “island-infused, drum ‘n’ sass, gospel-ninjasoul.” His high-energy hybridization of folk, soul, R&B, and captivating calypso beats have found their way onto his upcoming album, “Another Day.” The effort was recorded in only five days and shows signs of an artist continually willing to grow, no matter how widespread his roots may already be. Be ready to move your feet. Arthur Fraser also performs. Zach Deputy plays Saturday, June 18, 9:30 p.m. at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N. Water St. $10-$15. waterstreetmusic.com. — BY DAVID YOCKEL JR. Alexander St. 730-5985. 10 p.m. $5 after 11 p.m. Old School DJ. Clarissa’s, 293 Clarissa St. 454-2680. 8 p.m. Free.

Let’s take this outside [ THE SCENE ] BY TODD REZSNYAK

Going out and enjoying a drink or two with friends is all fine and well, but when the sun is blazing, the joy of a good beer can be ruined by standing in a crowded bar, sweating with everyone else that’s struggling to get served a cold one. Thankfully the Rochester bar and lounge scene offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy these precious summer moments outside in the cool, evening air. Below is just a sampling of Rochester’s bar-patio options, but these eight locations (four in the city, four by the lake) are being recognized specifically for their outdoor scene. For those with an aversion to the smell of lake water, these gems are located right in the city: Abilene Bar & Lounge (153 Liberty Pole Way. 232-3230, abilenebarandlounge.com. Hours: Monday-Thursday, 4 p.m.-2 a.m.; Friday 3 p.m.-2 a.m.; Saturday 7 p.m.-2 a.m.; Sunday for special events) Abilene’s outdoor area is a big draw in the warmer months due to the large number of live musical acts hosted by the bar. There’s plenty of seating available, and the patio is partially covered in case of rain. Outdoor speakers located on the far end of the patio allow patrons to hear the music from inside the bar. Added bonus: during Jazz Fest the patio nearly doubles in size and is transformed into an excellent outdoor music venue, complete with a tasty food menu. Lux Lounge (666 South Ave. 232-9030, lux666. com. Hours: Monday-Thursday, 5 p.m.-2 a.m.; Friday 4:30 p.m.-2 a.m.; Saturday-Sunday, 9 p.m.2 a.m.) Lux may seem small on the inside, but its outdoor sitting area practically doubles its space. With picnic tables set out to accommodate a large number of people and an encased fire pit surrounded

by log benches to keep people warm on the clearer, chillier nights, Lux is a great South Wedge spot to spend a summer evening. On certain nights (check with the bar beforehand), patrons can be treated to a viewing of a cult-classic film projected onto a big screen. Make sure you get your picture taken sitting on the phallic-shaped wooden chair. One Restaurant & Lounge (1 Ryan Alley. 5461010, oneryan.com; oneclublife.com. Nightclub hours: Thursday-Saturday 10 p.m.-2 a.m.; restaurant hours: Tuesday-Saturday 5-10 p.m.) One is centrally located near the intersection of East and Alexander, and after 10 p.m. certain nights it transforms into a nightclub complete with outdoor bar and large, outdoor lounging area. The second-story deck offers a great view overlooking the popular nightlife district. It has classy, pleasant Apple Store-esque white décor, and seating options whether alone (at the full, outdoor bar), with a friend at an elevated two-seat table, or in a small group in a comfortable booth. One recently opened a second kitchen on the patio, meaning that getting food outside will be faster and more convenient. Vertex (169 N. Chestnut St. 232-5498. Hours: Wednesday-Friday 10 p.m.-2 a.m., Saturday 10 p.m.-3 a.m.) Vertex is a unique experience, blending equal parts dance club and chill, hang-out lounge (it bills itself as “Rochester’s underground nightclub”). Shoot some billiards, dance a little, or just enjoy the late-night air outside. Vertex’s laid-back but hip vibe draws an eclectic mix of patrons, all of whom mingle well in the large, well-lit outdoor area in the back. The patio is covered in case of rain, and the bar is never too far away. For those who enjoy the gentle waves and soothing sounds of the lake, consider Marge’s Lakeside Inn (4909 Culver Road. 323-1020,

margeslakesideinn.com. Hours: opens at 5 p.m. Monday-Friday, 2 p.m. Saturday-Sunday) Marge’s has cemented itself as one of Rochester’s best outdoor drinking and lounging destinations. While the bar itself has flair (quite a bit, given its narrow quarters), once you walk to the beachfront out back and hear the sound of the water lapping against the shore and feel the sand in between your toes (be sure to wear sandals), you’ll feel transported to a warmer, tropical place. Picnic tables comfortably seat small groups, while folding chairs provide solitude for those who just want to enjoy a beer in peace. And if the sand isn’t your thing, you can always sit on the deck and soak in a summer sunset over the lake. Nola’s Waterfront BBQ (4775 Lake Ave. 6633375, nolasweb.com. Hours: Wednesday-Saturday 4-11 p.m.; live entertainment Fridays and Saturdays until 2 a.m.) Nola’s outdoor area is enormous. Featuring a large stage to host bands and live acts throughout the summer, Nola’s has two distinct seating arrangements. The first, on the ground floor, are for those who have come to watch and listen to the band play, while the second, on the upper deck, features comfortable couches and coffee tables a bit further away from the stage, for people who want to listen to the music but don’t want to have to yell over it. A large, full outdoor bar makes getting drinks a breeze, and access into the restaurant itself for food is just a few steps away. Pier 45 at the Port (1000 N. River St. 8654500, pier45attheport.com. Hours: Opens at 5 p.m. Monday-Friday, 4 p.m. Saturday-Sunday; lunch 11 a.m.-2 p.m. weekdays) Pier 45 has a cozy, intimate feel. Located on the second floor, the outdoor patio gives bar-hoppers a terrific view overlooking Lake Ontario, as well as the fresh-air scent coming off the water. The patio is equipped to handle different needs; some two-person tables provide for a more private setting, while in another corner several plush couches provide seating for a large group of friends. The outdoor area is also partially covered, in case bad weather strikes, and attentive wait staff will take care of your eating and drinking needs with a fine menu. Schooner’s Riverside Pub (70 Pattonwood Drive. 342-8363, shumwaymarine.com/schooners. shtml. Hours: Sunday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-midnight; Friday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-1 a.m.) Schooner’s is a hidden treasure tucked away in the back corner of the docks near Pattonwood Drive. This bar’s outdoor scene puts you right on the waterfront. A small stage gives ample room for live music, while seating is plentiful in the open-air gazebos, particularly around the large outdoor bar. The pub also has canvas walls and gas heaters in case of poor weather. Getting food is quick and easy from the outdoor kitchen, and for those who may not want to be up close with the musical guest of the evening, there are tables placed downstairs right by the water that provide a more private atmosphere.

INDIE | Tape Deck Mountain

Not unlike fashion, musical styles return in waves. The resurgence of post-rock and shoegaze of the past couple of years has produced a swath of artists eager to carve out their own corners of the genres, borrowing from the time between waves to update it accordingly. San Diego twosome Tape Deck Mountain is no exception. Their reverb-drenched, swirling rock would have sounded equally at home alongside the progenitors of the genre as it does among their current counterparts. Tape Deck Mountain’s most recent EP, “Secret Serf,” was released back in January, and the band is currently on an extensive tour in support of it, winding their way across the country and back over the course of the next month. Friend Museum and Dotsun Moon open the show. Tape Deck Mountain performs Monday, June 20, 8:30 p.m. at Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $5-$7. bugjar.com. — BY ANDY KLINGENBERGER Mike & Sergei.

Lifestyles of the rich and miserable “A Delicate Balance” Through June 18 By John W. Borek Presents MuCCC, 142 Atlantic Ave. Thu-Sat 8 p.m. | $10-$20 | 234-1254, muccc.org [ REVIEW ] BY ERIC REZSNYAK

It’s tough being upper-middle-class and white. That’s the thought that kept running through my mind while watching the current production of Edward Albee’s Tony- and Pulitzer-prize-winning play “A Delicate Balance,” now on stage at MuCCC. There were times that I found myself fighting the urge to walk on stage, place my hand on the shoulder of one of the characters agonizing over their well-appointed but unfulfilling lives, and gently say, “Maybe try washing a dish. Or doing your own laundry. Something. Anything.” These people can’t even make their own coffee without tracking down the help to find the beans. While the characters’ idleness can be frustrating, that’s a terribly dismissive attitude toward a well-written play, and a well-acted production. Albee’s works frequently examine the hollowness of 20th-century American family life, specifically in older, well-off couples where the little (and big) fallacies and disappointments

add up over the years to full-on existential crises. (See also: “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” and “The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?”) “Balance” follows a similar path, as a family grapples with some of life’s Big Questions — issues of loss, fairness, fidelity, gender roles, what it means to be a lover and a friend — in between many, many trips to the well-stocked living-room bar. “Balance” primarily focuses on Agnes and Tobias, an older, married couple that has reached that stage of comfortable coexistence. They banter, they cajole, but mostly they seem settled. The drama in their lives stems primarily from Claire, Agnes’s sister who lives with them, who argues that she’s not an alcoholic, merely a willful drunk; and also from Julia, Agnes and Tobias’s grown daughter who returns home after walking out on her third disastrous marriage. Things take a peculiar turn when Edna and Harry, longtime friends of Agnes and Tobias, appear on their doorstep one night with a rather bizarre request. The first act (of three) starts out slow, the

pacing verging on laconic on opening night. However, director Michael Arve builds the tension throughout the play, and Act III features some really spectacular exchanges between the actors. Even as the show rambles a bit, and some of the lines get repetitive, there is an intensity and a focus to the proceedings, which is even more remarkable considering that none

of the characters allow themselves to focus on their actual problems. (Seriously, multiple times characters are asked very important, pointed questions, and they invariably change the topic to something mundane — like getting another drink, for instance.) Vicki Casarett has been a fixture on local stages for years, and that experience shines through in her fully realized performance as Claire, the black-sheep sister. Claire is probably the most fun character in the show. She gets all the best lines, including some Joan Collins-worthy putdowns. It’s mentioned several times that she’s an observer of life, which is treated in this play both as a positive — she’s smart and perceptive, and has a better grip on the big picture than anyone else in the show — and as a tragedy. If you’re an observer of life it means you’re not actively participating in it, and in Claire’s case, that’s not necessarily by choice (despite what she’d like you to think). Casarett beautifully flows from boozy digs to fascinated spectator to a likable yet obviously wounded confidante. Plus she gets to play an accordion, which is pretty awesome. As Tobias, Roger Gans makes the largest emotional transformation in the show. His character first seems like one of those kindly but detached husbands just plodding along through life, but by play’s end he is absolutely desperate to find meaning in all of it, to know that all his years of friendship and marriage haven’t been wasted. There’s one moment in the third act where he pleads with another character, repeating the same line over and over again, with just enough variation to make each reading fresh and gut twisting. It’s hard to watch in all the best ways. Meredith Powell plays Julia, the troubled daughter, with a mixture of melancholy, hysteria, and petulance (mostly petulance). Julia is treated brusquely in the script, but Powell more than holds her own among a cast of veteran stage actors. Denise Bartalo and Jim Valone play Edna and Harry, who could easily be wacky sitcom neighbors if their motives and actions weren’t alternately creepy and vicious. Finally, Midge Marshal plays Agnes, the matriarch. Marshal has some fantastic scenes, especially later in the show, when years of resentments and suspicions come boiling up and over. There’s a lot of honesty in those moments, and Marshal plays them deftly, never falling into melodrama. You get the sense that the latter part of the play was more rehearsed than the earlier — or perhaps the actors took some time to find their groove. On opening night Marshal had some noticeable issues with line delivery, especially in the early scenes. It’s understandable, as Agnes tends to speak in a series of segues within segues — those rhythms can’t be easy. Early in the show it was a real problem, but later Marshal nailed it with a dignified, moving portrayal of a woman trying to hold her family together to begin again, each day after day.

FESTIVAL | JUNETEENTH

It is hard to imagine that slavery in this country was still in existence less than 200 years ago. Although it is a shameful part of American history, it is important to never forget and learn from the mistakes of the past. Rochester has a rich anti-slavery history that includes figures like Frederick Douglass, Susan B. Anthony, and other abolitionists. Although the Emancipation Proclamation was signed on January 1, 1863, many slaves were not aware of their freedom until June of 1865. Juneteenth is held every June to commemorate emancipation and is the oldest known celebration of the ending of slavery, according to the Freedom Way Business Association. This free, annual celebration is held at Susan B. Anthony Square between King and Madison streets, on Saturday, June 18, 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Educational speakers will lecture on the history behind slavery, and African-American culture will be celebrated through food, music, and games.

RECREATION | MOUNT HOPE CEMETERY TOURS It’s hard to understand the kind of senseless vandalism that recently took place at Mount Hope Cemetery (about 70 headstones were damaged or destroyed the weekend of June 4), especially since the place is so dear to so many seekers of a peaceful, quiet space. Besides being a popular spot for strolling, biking, and running with the dogs, the cemetery is a scenic spot packed with stories. You can learn some Mount Hope history by joining one of upcoming the themed tours, which run through the summer and the fall. Meet at the North Gatehouse of the cemetery (791 Mount Hope Ave., opposite Robinson Drive) on Friday, June 17, at 7 p.m. for the Mischief, Murder, & Mayhem tour. Your guide will introduce you to the cemetery’s permanent residents who bend, broke, or enforced the law. On Saturday, June 18, at 11:30 a.m., join the Rochester & The Legendary Erie Canal tour, and learn about the waterway that made Rochester a boom town, New York the Empire State, and enabled westward expansion. You’ll also learn about people with canal connections buried at Mount Hope. Tours are $5 or free to Friends of Mount Hope. General history tours are also offered Saturdays at 1 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. each week through the end of October, free of charge. Twlight Tours take place Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. through August 11, and admission is $5, or free to members.

SPECIAL EVENT | GAY PRIDE PAGEANT

Traditional pageant girls can be so boring, with their cookiecutter answers and Barbie doll faces. Luckily, Rochester is bringing back one of its most fabulous pageants for a 12th year, and it is anything but dull. Fashion, glamour, tears — everything you love about pageants will be taken to a whole different level during the Mr. and Miss Gay Pride 2011 Pageant. Competitors will battle it out for the title and tiara, as well as a ride and performance during Rochester’s Pride festivities, running July 8-17. The event takes place Sunday, June 19, at One Restaurant and Ultra Lounge on Ryan Alley. The pageant will be hosted by Poison Waters, the winner of Miss Gay Pride 2009, and will honor last year’s winner, Vanity Faire (pictured). There will also be performances by past title winners. The doors open at 7 p.m., the show starts at 8 p.m. and admission is $5 for those 21+ and $10 for ages 20 and under. For questions, call Liza at 285-0119 or visit the pageant’s Facebook event page. — BY ALEXANDRA CARMICHAEL Rochester & the Legendary Erie Canal.

SPECIAL EVENT | IKEBANA INTERNATIONAL

I’m not disciplined enough to meditate. My mind refuses to shut up, constructing list upon list of things I should be accomplishing instead, and the mere idea of sitting still with my eyes closed, except to collapse in fatigue, makes me antsy. I know that’s not healthy, but welcome to America. If you’re like me, then you might want to try one of the brilliant “meditation in motion” techniques that the Japanese have invented. One such busy-hands, wandering-mind technique is ikebana, the ancient Japanese art of floral arranging. The Rochester chapter of Ikebana International will celebrate its 50th anniversary of “friendship through flowers” (the group’s motto) on Thursday, June 16, at Hubbell Hall of the First Baptist Church (175 Allens Creek Road), with a special event including an exhibit and ikebana demonstration. Gregory Williams, ikebana teacher of the Sogetsu School of ikebana in Toronto, will demonstrate the art from 9:30 a.m. to noon, and the event will also feature sales tables of pottery, ikebana-related materials, and international foods. Admission is $10 at the door. In the afternoon, Williams will teach a workshop to registered members of the chapter for $20; nonmembers may audit the course for $5.

A golden age in Paris [ REVIEW ] by George Grella

“Midnight in Paris” (PG-13), directed by Woody Allen Now playing

In addition to a long string of comedies and several pretentious pseudo-philosophical inquiries into ethical conduct, Woody Allen has occasionally, though rarely successfully, dabbled in fantasy. “The Purple Rose of Cairo” achieves some genuine complexity, but the tepid failure of “Alice” and the embarrassing classical interruptions of “Mighty Aphrodite” suggest the essential juvenility of his imagination. In “Midnight in Paris” he

mixes some of his previous interest in both the subject and the technique of fantasy with the smug preachiness of his recent works. The picture opens with a leisurely montage of familiar sights in Paris, by day and night, in sunshine and rain, recalling the lyricism of similar moments in “Manhattan,” and providing a visual promise of the action that follows. The protagonist, Gil (Owen Wilson), a screenwriter visiting the city with his fiancee Inez (Rachel McAdams), rhapsodizes about the Paris of the 1920’s, when the city sparkled with artistic brilliance; he tells Inez that he’d rather work on his novel in a Parisian garret than enjoy his present success as a “Hollywood hack.” Inez and her wealthy, obnoxious parents, with the couple in Paris, prefer a more practical approach to life, which translates as piles of money and a house in Malibu. Gil finds his dream turning into reality when he takes a solitary, inebriated walk in the city, and at midnight an antique automobile drives out of the past packed with revelers, including Scott and

Zelda Fitzgerald, who invite him to a party. There Gil finds himself in the time he longed for, with Cole Porter playing the piano, Scott and Zelda making merry and taking him to meet their friend Ernest Hemingway (Corey Stoll). From there the action proceeds with Gil traveling back and forth between the exciting past of his dreams and his present with Inez, her odious parents, and her friends, particularly a pedantic professor, Paul (Michael Sheen), who delivers a series of lectures on the various locations they visit. Somehow hanging around with his contemporaries pales beside conversations with Hemingway, discussions of his manuscript with Gertrude Stein (Kathy Bates), and his encounters with a number of the remarkable collection of artists in the Paris of the 20’s, including Djuna Barnes, Pablo Picasso, Man Ray, Salvador Dali, and even briefly, T. S. Eliot. In addition to all that, he falls in love with Adriana (Marion Cotillard), the former mistress of both Braque and Picasso. Oddly, the pompous professor accurately describes Gil’s obsession with the past as a kind of syndrome of failure, a refusal to deal with the present and therefore a retreat into some chosen golden age. Gil discovers that Adriana herself, unhappy in what he sees as the vibrant, exciting world of the 1920’s, yearns for her own golden age, the Belle Epoque of the 1890’s — go figure. As usual with recent Allen films, “Midnight in Paris” ultimately delivers a pat

RAINY AFTERNOON MOVIE REVIEWS

Production values [ REVIEW ] BY DAYNA PAPALEO

“Super 8” (PG-13), written and directed by J.J. Abrams Now playing

little moral lesson, in this case precisely derived from its depiction of its protagonist’s fantasies. Despite its appreciation of the beauty and history of the city and its celebration of one of the most richly creative moments in the history of Western art, the movie’s approach to that era rapidly becomes annoying. Woody Allen’s notion of the history he explores reveals a shallow and inadequate knowledge of the time, full of anachronisms and inaccuracies, incorrect dates, impossible connections between historical personages, a kind of sophomoric and superficial repetition of popular misconceptions. He also tries for a certain cuteness in turning Ernest Hemingway into a parody of the author, solemnly delivering lines he actually wrote in another time and another place. The actors who play all the famous people very closely resemble their originals, so that Picasso, Man Ray, Dali, et. al. are immediately recognizable. Aside from Kathy Bates’s most convincing portrayal of Gertrude Stein — coincidentally undergoing something of a revival these days — only Owen Wilson stands out from the mostly conventional performances of the rest of the cast. His wide-eyed enthusiasm and goofy charm quite nicely accord with the pervasive tone of “Midnight in Paris,” a beautifully filmed tribute to a most picturesque place, when as Wordsworth wrote in a different context, “Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive/But to be young was very Heaven!”

In an era when a person’s fierce desire to keep a secret is eclipsed only by another person’s palm-rubbing glee at being the first to splash it all over cyberspace, J.J. Abrams must have a goon squad of guardian angels. Somehow, the successful writer-director-producer has been able to maintain the mystery on his high-profile projects, from the genius marketing of 2008’s “Cloverfield” to TV’s enduringly twisty “Lost” to his latest, “Super 8.” To be honest, though, that hush-hush veil almost worked against Abrams on “Super 8”; the enigmatic trailers made it look like a mere Spielberg copy, albeit one with a slobbering and much-hyped kiss from the legend himself as producer. And you know what? It is a total knockoff, except way more fun. To give you an idea where I’m coming from, however, allow me to brazenly paraphrase Chuck D: “E.T. was a hero to most but he never meant shit to me.” Because while Spielberg

may be a supreme weaver of yarns, even as a kid I remember being turned off by his obvious reliance upon sugary, manipulative sap. Not so with the more disciplined Abrams, whose 15-yearold self was actually hired by Spielberg about 30 years ago to recut Spielberg’s own early Super 8 efforts. And just as Spielberg famously modernized the B movies of his youth into lucrative appointment cinema, Abrams cites his Spielberg influences but goes one better, taking thrilling advantage of the cutting edge in special effects as well as what might be the state-of-the-art genetic engineering of thoughtful kid actors. After a prologue that efficiently establishes time, place, and circumstance, we get to know Joe (first-timer Joel Courtney), a teenager still quietly coping with the loss of his mother four months prior. Otherwise Joe appears to live the typical late 70’s life in suburban Lillian, Ohio, as he and his tight gaggle of friends dedicate themselves to making a barebones zombie flick that they plan to enter into a film festival. The proverbial pot gets stirred when Charles (Riley Griffiths), Joe’s best friend and the movie’s pushy director, decides his main character should have a wife, so enter Elle Fanning (“Somewhere”) as Alice, a seemingly worldly girl from the wrong side of the tracks. It’s while out filming late one night that the kids witness a spectacularly shot train crash that doesn’t seem to be an accident. Soon the Air Force is swarming all over the no-longer-sleepy Lillian, where Joe’s reticent deputy-sheriff father (Kyle Chandler, TV’s “Friday Night Lights”) is now trying to figure out where all the dogs ran off to, who stole 20 microwaves, and why various residents have gone missing. Once our heroes get their film footage back from the photo lab (yes, children, you used to have to wait!),

they make the connection between the derailed train’s cargo and the surprising goings-on in town, as well as the reason that the Air Force personnel are using the most dastardly methods possible to cover everything up. The patient Abrams provides only tempting glimpses of that reason for an unnervingly long time, entwining the action thread through a lovingly rendered coming-of-age story about smitten kids, sad dads, and the abiding pull of home. Thanks to its careful attention to period detail, “Super 8” looks great; cinematographer Larry Fong (he also shot “300” and “Watchmen”) strikes an effective balance between Middle-America normalcy and eye-popping science fiction. But this is one of those rare summer CGI romps where the human relationships are more interesting. The naturalistic interplay between the kids is the heart of “Super 8”; the unaffected Courtney is quite the find, Ryan Lee steals scenes as the bracefaced firebug, and Fanning remains a preternatural pro. (That’s the underrated Ron Eldard as Alice’s despondent father, looking rather Depardieu-y with his muttonchops and floppy blond hair.) Courtney and Griffiths in particular enjoy some wise and resonant scenes together, especially when Charles drops the miniWelles act and opens up. Abrams’ funny, evocative script thrums with knowing nostalgia, the kind that makes you silently sigh in recognition rather than grimace at its rose-colored idealism. “Super 8” makes no effort to hide its Spielberg-ness, right down to the faux John Williams score (by way of Michael Giacchino, “Up”) with ominous orchestral swells that actually do nothing to minimize genuine shock. But it’s no crime to wear your inspiration on your sleeve, particularly if you’re going to put your own improved stamp on it.

Saturday, June 18, 8 p.m. Something strange shakes up the tumbleweed town of Perfection, Nevada. As the seismic readings skitter off the chart, a slithering menace picks off the townsfolk. Enter Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward as the town handymen. Can these unlikely heroes outsmart the wily creatures and save the town? Reba McEntire and Michael Gross add a comic touch as a gun-toting survivalists in this pitch-perfect monster movie. (Ron Underwood, US 1990, 96 min.)

Indoor and Outdoor Beauty in Maplewood 300 Maplewood Avenue The early 20th century saw the emergence of Maplewood as one of Rochester’s finest neighborhoods. Professionals, business leaders and entrepreneurs built grand homes along Lake Avenue and the surrounding streets. The house at 300 Maplewood Avenue is among them, a fine example of the Dutch Colonial Revival style with great attention to detail, lovingly preserved and enhanced over the years. The house is sited on a magnificent lot that backs up to the forever-wild Genesee River Gorge. The river is visible when leaves are off the trees and the crashing of water over the Lower Falls is heard all year. A full two-car garage is tucked behind the house, invisible from the street. The .19-acre property features shade plants such as azalea and hosta. The exterior color, light brown with tobacco trim, is accented with burgundy details. Handsome leaded glass windows and doors proliferate throughout the house, beginning with the arched window in the front door. Narrowplank “Rochester” hardwood floors unite most of the first floor. To the left from the foyer, through leaded glass French doors, is an unusually vast living room. The massive fireplace with white mantle features an arched firebox and small leaded glass cupboards. Picture molding and deep molding at the floor and ceiling add to the room’s comfortable formality.

room. Leaded glass windows and French doors complete the picture. The recently remodeled kitchen features beadboard cupboard doors and a light-filled eating area that leads to a large raised deck overlooking the backyard and River Gorge. The master bedroom on the second floor includes an updated bathroom and a screened porch that feels like a treehouse. A second full bath serves the other two bedrooms, one of which leads to a fourseason porch with leaded glass windows that can serve as another bedroom. The third floor features a bedroom, kitchenette and full bath. The large basement is also finished, with a rec room, office, laundry and wine cellar. The house’s 2,025 square feet does not include the attic and basement. For more information on the delightful house at 300 Maplewood Avenue, visit http:// rochestercityliving.com/property/R157684 or contact Bonnie Hunt, Nothnagle Realtors, at 421-5161. The property is listed for $149,900.

Beyond the living room, through a leaded glass door, is a charming year-round porch with leaded glass windows on three sides.

Historic Maplewood invites you to the Maplewood Rose Fest, June 18-19, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Enjoy activities for gardeners and the whole family as well as the 5,000 roses in bloom at the corner of Lake Avenue and Driving Park. Free admission.

[ news of the weird ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD

In Chinese legend, tea leaves picked by fairies using not their hands but just their mouths yielded brewed tea that would bring prosperity and cure diseases, and now the historic, picturesque Jiuhua Mountain Tea Plantation (in Gushi, Henan province) has promised to hire up to 10 female virgins to provide the equivalently pure and delicate tea leaves, picked with the teeth and dropped into small baskets worn around the women’s necks. According to an April report in London’s Daily Mail, only virgins with strong necks and lips (and a bra size of C-cup or larger), and without visible scars or blemishes, will be considered for the equivalent-$80-a-day jobs (an almost unheard-of salary in China, especially for agricultural field work). — Cliche Come to Life: The person in the news most recently for slipping and falling on a banana peel might be Ida Valentine, 58, who filed a lawsuit in February against the 99 Cents Only chain after slipping on one while shopping in its store in Fontana, Calif., in April 2010. The fall, she said, left her with a herniated disk and tissue damage. — News of the Weird has reported several times on the confusion many art gallery visitors reveal in evaluating “abstract impressionist” pieces when they compare them to random scribblings of toddlers (and animals, such as chimpanzees and elephants). In April, academic researchers at Boston College reported that, indeed, gallery patrons correctly differentiated serious works from squiggles only about 60 percent to 70 percent of the time. Commented one survey subject,

apparently realizing his confusion: “The chimpanzee’s stuff is good. I like how he plays with metaphors about depth of field, but I think I like this guy (Mark) Rothko a little bit better.” — The powerful suction of swimming pool filters can trap not only toddlers against the drain but a grown man in excellent physical condition, according to a lawsuit filed in May by the family of the late John Hoy Jr., who drowned when unable to pry himself loose from the vacuum drain of a hot tub at the Sandals resort in Nassau, Bahamas, in 2010. (The most notorious drain-pegging of all time was perhaps a 1994 incident at a Scottish Inn motel in Lakeland, Fla., when a 33-year-old guest’s penis became stuck in the drain, apparently as he was testing the filter’s suction. That story did not appear in News of the Weird, but several sources cite a July 1994 story in the Sarasota Herald Tribune.) — British welfare benefits are being reduced in two years, but for now, work-shunning parents who blithely navigate a series of government “support” payments can make a nice living for themselves. Kathy Black, 45, of East Hanningfield, Essex, with 16 children by six fathers thus qualifies for the equivalent of at least $1,000 a week (the take-home pay of someone earning the equivalent of $68,000 a year), and child support from one of the fathers adds even more to her account. Black’s second husband, her 17-year-old son and her 22-year-old daughter spilled secrets of her irresponsibility to a Daily Mail reporter in February.

[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 33 ]

[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take action rather than expressing your love verbally. A surprise visit or plans to do something unusual will get the sparks flying and give you a better understanding of what it takes to capture the object of your heart’s desire. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You will find it difficult to settle down, let alone recognize how someone truly feels about you. Overreacting can be expected, causing you to misinterpret the signals being sent. Don’t let an old flame waltz back into your life. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your fickle nature will cause emotional

indifference. Be careful not to discourage someone you like because you are too busy trying to get everyone to love you. Excitement and adventure may be your game but emotional stability will bring you better results. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Find out as much as you can about someone who interests you before you make your move. You don’t want to get involved with someone carrying too much baggage from a past relationship or who isn’t totally free to hook up with you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Control your physical urges, especially if

they concern someone you work with. Keep your professional and personal lives separate and focus more on what you can do for others. Volunteering your time and expertise will lead to an interesting connection with someone who brightens your life. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Loosen up or you will miss out on an experience that can change your life and status. Now is not the time to stagnate or move backwards emotionally. Stay away from past partners or anyone who is involved with someone else. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Actions will speak louder than

words, so don’t sit back being lazy waiting for someone you like to make the first move. By being engaging, you will capture the interest as well as the heart of the person you target. Love is highlighted, so don’t miss a great opportunity. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’ll have plenty of opportunity to meet someone of interest but be careful how you proceed. A cost is involved if you want to impress this person, so consider whether or not it’s a worthwhile venture. There should be no price tag involved in an affair of the heart.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll attract a lot of attention from people interested in getting to know you better but, before you jump in feet first, make sure that both you and the partner you choose have good intentions. A false impression is likely to lead to a big disappointment. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’ll have plenty of opportunity to show off and to attract someone who has all the qualities you are looking for in a partner. Don’t be too quick to make your move; first, discover how much you actually have in common.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Your carefree and easy-going attitude will attract a lot of partners. Avoid leading someone on if you only want to be friends. It’s important to clear time for the person who really fits your personality and future goals best. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll have trouble differentiating between who loves you for yourself and who loves you for what you offer. Don’t let the physical side of a relationship be the deciding factor. If you hold out, you will meet someone who can offer you equality — mentally, physically and financially.
