Development foes are obstructionists Regarding potential investment and development at the Port of Rochester area (“The Urban Balancing Act,” Urban Journal): Could it be that the “residents” identified in the article would wait another 50 years for actual redevelopment of this longneglected section of the City of Rochester? This lakefront neighborhood should be a crown jewel of the entire city and county, rather than the private reserve of a few obstructionists. Has anyone noticed that the expansive parking lots are largely empty for eight months of the year? Or that the so-called “character” of the area, especially along Lake Avenue, is rather dilapidated and devoid of people with a few notable exceptions like Mr. Dominic’s? And as for Towler’s “worry” about the feasibility about condos in the proposed development, I would point out that the homes along Beach Avenue are not exactly subsidized housing. The expressed worry by Towler and some Charlotte residents, to me, is more of the inferiority complex shared by too many Rochester residents. And where was the outcry about the two high-rise, Sovietstyle apartment buildings that already dominate the Charlotte skyline? And I take exception with the concept of “residents vs. developer” that sets the tone of the article. Certainly, developers must be held to high standards. So must city government, which has often made serious blunders regarding redevelopment, such as the present construction of 2 CITY

a marina, which is unneeded, and the realization of the Lake Ontario Resource Center, which is needed but has been neglected. And what about a serious effort to bring Great Lakes cruise ships into the port? Enough is enough. Let’s finally move forward to a yearround, vibrant, and attractive Port of Rochester. Sea gulls should not be the only predictable activity in the area! WILL CONDO
How much of the growth in use of solar power comes from the fact that the rest of us are paying for 75 percent of the investment cost? (“Sun Gods”: Why Solar Power Isn’t Just for Hippies Anymore”) Talk about subsidies. For drivers of electric cars, the subsidies do not stop with the capital investment. A significant part of the price of gasoline and diesel is represented by state and federal taxes to be used to maintain roads. Electric cars pay nothing; is that fair to the rest of us? MIKE
Doing the math on the B + L building
“Never work for a company that’s building a multi-story headquarter tower – a sign of outdated management” (paraphrase: Tom Peters, international business guru). A tiny band of us argued this point and others as the City of Rochester gave away the money vault to “keep Bausch & Lomb” downtown and prevent them from (horror!) building their new headquarters building in the suburbs. Not a move to Georgia but a move to – gasp! – Perinton. Maybe. And so the City: • Condemned a perfectly good apartment building with 137 tenants; • Bought and cleared the property and “helped transfer” (read: paid moving expenses) all tenants to new
space, i.e. other apartments that the city heavily subsidized in part to make this deal happen; • Bought and leveled a dry cleaners site that proved contaminated and required bushels of money to remediate, then helped “transfer” (as above) said dry cleaners to another site in the city; • Agreed to build a new parking garage connected to B&L headquarters totally at taxpayer expense. What else? A little digging will reveal a bunch more “incentives” – all on the taxpayers’ checkbook. B&L used that building for maybe 18 years? I’m guessing (conservatively) that the city taxpayer subsidy amounted to more than $1 million per year. So the building has just been sold for $15 million. Who gets to keep the money? And who gets to hold the empty bag? I’m sick of hearing the City and RDDC proclaim that “it’s all good” when these deals usually stink to high heaven. In what universe do such incentives work?

A good idea for East High
Douglas Llewellyn’s “A Model for a New East High” (Feedback) has merit. A K-12 community-schoolbased model is a chance to forge a new partnership that will benefit students and parents. If implemented properly, it could become a model for urban school reorganization throughout the district. Hopefully, the leaders at the University of Rochester Warner School and the Rochester City School District will not waste this opportunity, simply changing schedules, modifying curriculum, and adjusting the length of the school day. The students, faculty, and parents at
East High School deserve something more creative for the future. A K-12 community school is definitely a step in the right direction. One area that Llewellyn did not touch upon was student diversity. As with many urban schools, East High School has become segregated by race and poverty. Did we not learn from Brown v. Board of Education, passed 60 years ago, that “separate educational facilities are inherently unequal”? What we have at East High School is de facto segregation. Implementing a K-12 community school may be a way to restore racial balance. So let me raise my voice for real change. Consider establishing a K-12 community school at East that reflects the multi-racial make-up of the City of Rochester: 42 percent white, 40 percent African American, 14 percent Hispanic, and 4 percent Asian, Native American, and other. A school where parents, students, teachers, and administrators would elect to become part of a community school for students in grades K-12. The 500-500-500 plan that Llewellyn suggests for elementary, middle, and high school students has many benefits for all concerned. Much is said and written about the power of community; here is a chance to bring that power to life. DONALD BARTALO
The advantages of banning the box
I agree with Jamie Dougherty’s assessment of the limited impact banning the box might have on the “employment landscape” (Better Odds for Exoffenders,” News), but as someone who has worked in the employment and training field for 25 years, I say try it. Such a ban should improve one’s chances of
obtaining the all-important interview, since no one gets hired without one – keeping in mind all the time that before you call sell yourself in person, you have to sell yourself on paper. As someone who has been on both sides of the table – interviewer, interviewee – I’m sympathetic. HR staff and recruiters regularly confront the daunting task of reading and ranking numerous applications (and resumes and cover letters). Given the nature of this job, it’s not surprising that they look for reasons to screen out, not in. A conviction, especially a recent one and especially a felony, is often one of those reasons. Asking a stranger to provide such potentially damaging information raises the bigger question of how long any of us must be penalized for our mistakes. (“You can spend the entire second half of your life recovering from the mistakes of the first half,” wrote Saul Bellow). The older worker is at a disadvantage, too, by volunteering his or her age, which is also hard to avoid with the emergence of online applications. Once I show up live and in color for the interview, my age will be apparent, but at least now I have a chance to counteract bias, if there is one. My age, criminal history, or reason(s) why I left my last job will come out; I just want them to come out as late in the process as possible. Inevitably, the hiring process is a mixture of the objective and the subjective. Most of us give a fuller, more nuanced picture of who we are, as a person and prospective employee, in person rather than on a “just the facts” application. The interview provides context and gives the applicant a better opportunity to make his or case, which sometimes includes mitigating or putting in the best possible light poor decisions and bad luck.

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
National security: the US, Obama, and Iraq Here we go again. Another country far away is blowing itself up. And once more, here in The Homeland we’re debating whether we should get involved. That the blow-up is taking place in Iraq adds to the complexity (and the heat) of the debate. In the Washington Post, Fareed Zakaria warns that aiding the Iraqi government would be “defending the indefensible.” The New York Times urges that the US “simply cannot be sucked into another round of war in Iraq.” Lashing out from the other side, predictably, is Arizona’s John McCain, who says President Obama is to blame. The reason: Obama pulled US troops out of Iraq in 2011. According to Politico, in a recent MSNBC interview “McCain said repeatedly that the US ‘had the conflict won’ after the 2007 troop surge, with Iraq maintaining a stable government and Al Qaeda extremists largely defeated.” But when Obama had US troops come home without leaving a residual force behind, McCain said, he let the situation in Iraq deteriorate. Now, McCain insisted, “this has turned into one of the most serious threats to American security in recent history.” America seems very tired of war, and I don’t think the hawks in Congress will find much support for more military action in Iraq. But that doesn’t mean we’ll be united. President Obama’s supporters will applaud his caution; his opponents will take this as one more example of incompetence. But the opponents are ignoring history. The violence we’re seeing now, in Iraq and in other countries in the region, grew out of centuries of conflicts within these countries – quite a bit of it abetted by decisions made and boundaries established by outsiders like, well, the United States. It also seems clear that the current blow-up in Iraq stems from the treatment of Sunnis by Prime Minister Nouri alMaliki and his Shiite supporters. But Americans’ conviction that we can fix everything persists. David Brooks and others insist that if we had kept a small force in Iraq, we would have been able to, as Brooks put it, “restrain Maliki’s sectarian tendencies.” How long would it have taken, and how many lives would it have cost, to “restrain Maliki’s sectarian tendencies”? It was a struggle while we were there. Would we have really been able to force him to have a more inclusive government? Would
If we had a small, ‘restraining’ force there now, what would it have done in the face of the militants’ onslaught?” he ever have done enough to satisfy the Sunnis and the militants now wreaking havoc in Iraq? If we had a small, “restraining” force there now, what would it have done in the face of the militants’ onslaught? And, by the way, the US had no choice when it pulled out the troops. Go back and read the news reports from 2010 and 2011. Maliki wanted us out, and we had signed an agreement pledging to leave by the end of 2011. The Obama administration, increasingly worried that Iraq wasn’t stable enough for us to leave, tried to get an extension. Maliki refused. In a lengthy interview with the Wall Street Journal in late 2010, Maliki insisted that his government and Iraqi security forces were able to handle things on their own. Americans would leave at the end of 2011, as the US and Iraq had agreed. “This agreement is not subject to extension, not subject to alteration,” he told the Journal. “It is sealed.” An October 2011 Atlantic article quotes some strongly pro-American Iraqi leaders saying we needed to go. “We have serious security problems in this country and serious political problems,” former Iraqi Prime Minister Ayad Allawi told The Atlantic. But, he said: “Keeping Americans in Iraq longer isn’t the answer to the problems of Iraq. It may be an answer to the problems of the US, but it’s definitely not the solution to the problems of my country.” continues on page 7 rochestercitynewspaper.com

Developer has new plan for West Main site
Developer Marvin Maye has a new plan for his property at 660-668 West Main Street. Maye is seeking permission from the City of Rochester to tear down a historic church and vacant house on the land to construct a grocery store with parking and loading space. Maye initially proposed a Dollar General for the site, but met with resistance from preservationists and residents.
Two local sites nominated for historic lists
First Unitarian Church in Rochester and North Star School No. 11 in the Town of Hamlin have been nominated by Governor Andrew Cuomo for inclusion on the State and National Registers of Historic Places. Being on the list can make property owners eligible for preservation programs and services, such as state and federal tax credits.
Complaint alleges bus station damages
The owner of the H.H. Warner building downtown is suing the Rochester-Genesee Regional Transportation Authority as
well as two local contractors over the new transit center. In the complaint, H. H. Warner LLC says that construction on the center has damaged the Warner building. The transit center is scheduled to open later this year.
COMIDA says pay up
The Monroe County Industrial Development Agency filed a lawsuit against EBaum’s Webster Ventures, seeking $297,101 in outstanding payments from a tax incentive deal that COMIDA terminated a few months ago, reported the Democrat and Chronicle. COMIDA says the company hasn’t made required payments since 2012.
Phase two of FMP challenged
A last-minute agreement between Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren and state lawmakers including Assembly member Joe Morelle saved the second phase of the modernization project in the Rochester school district. Funding for the second phase was in jeopardy after Warren said she would not support the bill. Warren says that changes she pushed for have been included in the bill, though it's not yet clear what those changes are.

TRANSPORTATION | BY JEREMY MOULE
Seeking bus converts Fans of mass transit often talk about how hard it is to convince people to give public transportation a shot. But for the past few years, some local mass transit advocates have tried to have a little fun with the task. The result is ROC Transit Day, which happens this year on Thursday, June 19. For the event, the Rochester Genesee Regional Transportation Authority provides Reconnect Rochester, the group that organizes ROC Transit Day, with free bus passes. The group distributes the fare
cards to participating businesses, which give them to employees who want to try riding the bus. “We’re targeting people who typically drive and have not used public transit before,” says Mike Governale, president of Reconnect Rochester. As an added incentive, the group has arranged for busker performances at some bus stops, a swing dance on the Rundel library building steps, a treasure hunt with prizes, and other activities. People can also get deals at participating businesses by showing their fare
cards. A list of the businesses and information on the events is available at www.roctransitday.com. ROC Transit Day started in 2011 when Governale and like-minded people got between 50 and 70 people to give the bus system a try. They gave participants a UFO pin; the image was chosen because every $1 spent on gas is a $1 sucked out of the local economy, Governale says. The next year, the RGRTA got involved and began providing complementary fare cards. And 152 people participated in ROC Transit Day in 2012, Governale says.

“There was a time when a teacher could get fired for becoming pregnant, school board members could hire their friends and relatives, or a teacher could get fired because of their sexual orientation.” [ ROCHESTER SCHOOLS SUPERINTENDENT BOLGEN VARGAS ]
EDUCATION | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO
Teachers’ rights challenged The recent anti-tenure decision by a California Superior Court judge shocked many teachers and their union leaders across the country. The court ruled that teacher job protections in that state, such as tenure, are unconstitutional because they impede students’ rights to a good education. But education reformers and many business leaders and politicians couldn’t be happier. And some predicted that the case would spawn similar legal battles in other states. Considering how poorly most of the city’s schools perform, should Rochester’s teachers worry about a similar legal challenge? And what does the California case, which is going to be appealed, mean for New York? “I think every state is vulnerable, but there are degrees of vulnerability,” says Adam Urbanski, president of the Rochester Teachers Association. Tenure legislation is not the same in every state, he says, and some states, including New York, have been making adjustments to the law. “My hope is that the net effect of all of this will be continued improvements in tenure laws, not elimination of tenure,” Urbanski says.
He says he supports finding ways to reduce the time and cost to deny tenure and to dismiss ineffective teachers. Urbanski, like many labor leaders who have looked at the California case, says that the court ignored the impact of poverty and inadequate school funding on student performance. And he says that wealthy business leaders are funding legal fights, including the one in California, to reduce the influence of unions, and to further their own agenda for privatization of public education. Both Urbanski and Rochester Superintendent Bolgen Vargas say there’s a lot of confusion about tenure. While both support it, they have different views on the problems with tenure and what to do about those problems. Urbanski says the public tends to believe that tenure guarantees a job for life, but in reality, he says, “it’s only a guard against unfair and arbitrary treatment by school administrators.” And Rochester’s system of peer mentoring and review is designed to identify teacher effectiveness problems early — before tenure is even an option, Urbanski says. Vargas firmly believes, however, that tenure has to be earned for doing
an exceptional job; that it shouldn’t be awarded based on time served or meeting minimum standards. He says that tenure can inhibit the flexibility needed to manage an organization such as the city school district, particularly when it comes to turning around poorly performing schools. “I personally do believe we need to revisit tenure and adjust it to meet the needs of the current times,” Vargas says. “There was a time when a teacher could get fired for becoming pregnant, school board members could hire their friends and relatives, or a teacher could get fired because of their sexual orientation.” State and federal laws have reduced those problems, he says. But Vargas says the biggest challenge with worker protection laws has more to do with the district’s culture than with the laws themselves. He says there’s an inherent contradiction with tenure because the district’s culture doesn’t include an incentive for denying it. That would involve holding people at all levels accountable to a higher standard, he says. And tenure tends to be incorrectly perceived as an issue solely with teachers, he says. Management tenure needs adjustment, too, Vargas says; accountability starts at the top.

In his roughly two years on the job, Vargas has denied tenure to 12 administrators — more than any of his recent predecessors. And he’s only approved tenure for 75 administrators, considerably fewer than former superintendents Manny Rivera or Jean-Claude Brizard. That has fueled tension between Vargas and district administrators. A fairly public confrontation with the Association of Supervisors and Administrators of Rochester, the union that represents principals and school administrators, underscores that point. Earlier this year, ASAR members voted “no confidence” in Vargas as superintendent of Rochester’s schools.

PHOTO BY MARK CHAMBERLIN (right) Irondequoit and Webster officials say that they would like to find a long-term alternative to the Irondequoit Bay swing bridge, which is closed to vehicles for part of the year. PHOTO BY MARK CHAMBERLIN
Irondequoit is the town with the Medley Centre problem. And for the past few years, the community has grown deeply frustrated with the owner, who’s made no visible progress on redeveloping the idle mall. But the Depot Plaza, located a few long blocks to the west on East Ridge Road, sits in stark contrast. The plaza’s owner recently completed a $14 million overhaul of the property, and businesses are starting to open. One of them is a new Tops store, which relocated from its old site on North Goodman Street. The new store is bigger, employs more people, stocks a wider selection of products, and uses a new design that the company is testing out. The plaza will soon have the Rochester area’s first Sonic fast-food joint. And much of the community is thrilled with the project. The property’s owner, Morgan Depot LLC, didn’t just update the plaza’s façade; it changed the layout and connected its parking area with the neighboring Home Depot lot, says Irondequoit Supervisor Adam Bello. “It improves the whole area right there,” Bello says. “And I think that can be a catalyst for other development.” Irondequoit officials want to see more projects like Depot Plaza, and to make that happen, they plan to start reaching out to and recruiting other businesses and developers. But before they start, they want to develop a long-range vision for the town, one the Irondequoit community buys into. They want to be able to show anyone who might invest in Irondequoit the type of development and businesses they want, where they want them, and what they want them to look like. To that end, Irondequoit officials are developing a new comprehensive plan for the town. They hope to release a draft to the public in July, collect public input in August, and adopt a final plan in September, Bello says. 6 CITY
JUNE 18-24, 2014
The draft will be based around work done during a previous comprehensive-plan process, which started in 2008 but was never finished. Officials haven’t adopted a townwide plan since 1985. Ultimately, the document will lay out some broad objectives around development. The draft will advocate for more seniorfriendly housing, explain how the town’s waterfront could be better used, and push for more consistency among signs and building facades in the commercial areas, Bello and Nick Weatherbee, the town’s director of development, say. The draft plan will also include some key goals for the town, including new sports fields and bike lanes that connect key destinations in the town. Irondequoit is an older inner-ring suburb
and, at approximately 51,600 residents, it’s the second-largest town in Monroe County. It’s defined as much by its pleasant, stable neighborhoods as it is by the Seabreeze area or its evolving commercial districts. And despite being almost totally built out, the town is going through perhaps its largest growth period in recent history, says Fred Squicciarini, president of the Irondequoit Chamber of Commerce. He rattles off a few projects as examples. On Titus Avenue, Irondequoit residents Mike and Wendy Nolan are preparing to open the first building of their I-Square mixed-use project, Squicciarini says. The town has begun building a new Irondequoit Public Library. And a slew of businesses, including a Chipotle and a new Starbucks, are opening on East Ridge Road. Much of the comprehensive plan’s focus will be on revitalizing and rebuilding the town’s commercial areas, especially the East Ridge Road corridor, Bello and Weatherbee say.
“We don’t have a lot of vacant land left in Irondequoit, but that shouldn’t limit our opportunities for development,” Bello says. “And I think Depot Plaza proved that you can reinvest in the development of some properties and see significant results.” The East Ridge strip developed without any long-term guidelines, and as a result it feels disjointed. In one area, a big-box Home Depot store is separated from the sidewalk by a parking lot. Across the road, a collection of smaller businesses operate out of converted houses, which butt up against the sidewalk and have their parking around back. Bello says the comprehensive plan will include recommendations on issues such as placement of storefronts and sign standards, which over time should help the corridor have more consistency. As part of the plan, town officials will catalog the existing business, available properties, and vacant land in its commercial areas. That information will be useful once they start trying to recruit new developers and businesses. Squicciarini, who has met with officials on the comprehensive plan, is encouraged. By having a comprehensive plan, the town offers certainty to developers and businesses with an interest in Irondequoit, he says. “We do want a good-looking town, we do want some uniformity, and we feel that it’s also in the best interest of businesses and future businesses of the town to set them off on the right foot,” Squicciarini says. But a comprehensive plan should also look
at a community’s assets and ways to bolster them, says Ann Burns, co-chair of Helping Irondequoit Plan for Progress, a grassroots group focused on the Hudson-TitusCooper area. Residents often tell her that they value the town’s walkable neighborhoods, she says. The comprehensive plan should emphasize
the importance of connected sidewalks and old-growth street trees, she says. It should also recommend the addition of pedestrianfriendly features to streets. A plan for the Hudson-Cooper-Titus area calls for a median on Hudson Avenue at Titus, so it would be easier for people to cross the street, she says. “The town has done a really fine job the last few years putting in additional sidewalks, so it would just be a matter of continuing that,” she says. Weatherbee and Bello say the draft will include a healthy neighborhoods section, which will focus, in part, on ways to make the town more bike and pedestrian friendly. Likewise, Irondequoit officials and Squicciarini say the town’s waterfront is a unique asset, though one that the community hasn’t taken full advantage of. The comprehensive plan will have a section devoted to some key waterfront areas in the town. And that part of the plan will explain what the community wants to see in each area in terms of businesses, development, or public access, officials say. The plan’s waterfront section will likely speak to an issue that’s long frustrated people in the Seabreeze area and a neighboring part of Webster: the Irondequoit Bay swing bridge. The bridge closes to vehicle traffic from April to November, which cuts the northwest corner of Webster off from Seabreeze, Route 590, and Culver Road, and vice versa. Bello says he and Webster Supervisor Ron Nesbitt have talked about working together to find a long-term solution to the problem. In particular, they want to find funding for a study that could identify some options. “I do think it’s good that boat traffic can go through, people can utilize the water,” Bello says. “But it also hurts business up there, particularly Seabreeze as a tourist destination.”

It’s hard to read about the disaster
unfolding in Iraq, hard look at the photos of families fleeing their homes, carrying their frightened children. But the United States cannot police the world. Nor should it. And when we try – whether for misguided but wellintentioned reasons or for unsaid selfish reasons (oil often among them), we often do more harm than good. Maybe the hawks shouting for involvement in Iraq should read a bit of the history of that part of the world. And maybe they should reread some of the newspaper articles about our foreign policy debates. For example: During the Republicans’ primary fights in June 2011, Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan, a proud Republican, noted that even some of the most conservative candidates were reconsidering their party’s militaristic foreign-policy approach. The party, she wrote, seemed to be “inching its way back from 10 years of un-Republican behavior, from a kind of dreaminess about the world: ‘Everybody wants to be like us.’” “Actually,” Noonan wrote, “everyone doesn’t.” And Noonan wrapped up her column this way: “The problem with Afghanistan, and Iraq for that matter, is not only that after 10 years our efforts have turned out to be – polite word – inconclusive. We are spending money we don’t have for aims we cannot even articulate.” Obama’s careful study and cautious behavior isn’t sexy. And it’s not as adrenalin producing as a gun-blazing policy of shock and awe. But it’s not a policy of isolationism. It’s a policy of informed realism. And it’s a darned good national security policy.

And while some Kurdish leaders wanted us to stay, Kurdish legislator Mahmoud Othman told The Atlantic this: “Personally, I no longer want them to stay. It’s been eight years. I don’t think having Americans stay in Iraq will improve the situation at all. Leaving would be better for them and for us. It’s time for us to go our separate ways.” Clearly, President Obama has set us on a new path in foreign policy. It’s not the path George Bush and Dick Cheney had us on, and it’s not the path Mitt Romney would have had us on. But it’s a sensible path.

Marshall Street Bar and Grill beefs up its bar menu with offerings like a Double Bacon Chicken Cheeseburger (a cheeseburger, bacon, and chicken fingers on a roll) with mac salad (left); and Irish Nachos made with waffle fries and topped with jalapeño-queso, onions, tomatoes and jalapeños (middle and right).

Bar food, turned up to 11 [ CHOW HOUND ] BY KATIE LIBBY
Marshall Street Bar and Grill is not new. They opened officially on October 1, 2010, in the space formerly occupied by Damian’s Pub on the corner of Monroe Avenue and Marshall Street. Over the last year, however, a certain buzz has grown around them. In recent conversations I've had regarding Rochester food, many have voiced that Marshall Street is the destination for the best bar food in town. Owner Don Bush is a familiar face on Monroe Avenue. Bush worked at Acme Bar and Pizza for 10 years before venturing out on his own. Choosing the location wasn’t an easy decision — Bush and his wife Kelly looked at other neighborhoods in Rochester before deciding on the Marshall and Monroe location. “I’ve lived on Monroe Avenue since I was 16,” Bush says. “I wanted to give people a reason to come down to this end of Monroe Avenue and then have it become a destination for them.” To his advantage, Bush’s experience in the restaurant and bar business informed what he would and wouldn’t want for his own place. “I wanted a place where people felt
comfortable, a real neighborhood bar and grill where my customers feel at home.” And the space really makes you feel comfortable; from the Christmas tree that is up year round — and seasonally decorated — to the wall of board games. The televisions even have at least one educational program playing on one of the screens at all times (“That’s for me,” Bush says). Marshall Street’s menu is bar food on amphetamines. You won’t want to order just a burger — although you can — you’ll want a Double Bacon Chicken Cheeseburger ($8), a cheeseburger with “bacon, chicken fingers, and more bacon.” You won’t get a typical version of a garbage plate, you’ll find the volcano plate, of which there are three different varieties. Pay attention to The Kilauea ($16.50), which includes your choice of two meats plus chicken fingers, Marshall Street’s homemade Sloppy Joe mix, and the standard fries, mac salad, cheese, and hot sauce. The Flying Pig Sandwich ($7.50), the “younger brother” of the Double Bacon Chicken Cheeseburger, is a heart-pumping combination of pulled pork, chicken
fingers, crumbly blue cheese, and BBQ sauce. The Fried Bologna sandwich ($4.50) is a personal favorite, thick slices of fried bologna served on grilled Texas toast. Bush says his current favorite menu item is the Breakfast Burger ($7): a cheeseburger with bacon, egg, and sweet molasses glaze on Texas toast. Vegetarians need not fear the meatheavy menu. There are Vegetarian Battered Hot Dog Bites ($5.75), a Veggie Burger ($6.50), and even a meatless version of a Sloppy Joe ($5.50) available. My vegetarian friends started to salivate over the Irish Nachos ($5.50) which consist of waffle fries, Marshall Street’s own jalapeño queso, onion, tomatoes, and jalapeños. Bush has a philosophy that he models his business after. “If you try to be something that you’re not, you’re not going to succeed. Have a vision, and don’t waver from that,” he says. Marshall Street Bar and Grill is located at 81 Marshall Street. It is open Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 2 a.m., and Sunday, 12 p.m. to 2 a.m. Menu prices range from $2.50 to $16.50. For more information, visit marshallstreetbarandgrill.com.
Zeppa Bistro (315 Gregory Street) will
hold a wine pairing dinner with courses featuring fresh ingredients from Hilton’s Bolton Farms on Tuesday, June 24, at 7 p.m. The dinner is $70 per person. Call 563-6421 to make a reservation. Tavern 58 at Gibbs (58 University Avenue) will host a Brazilian Themed Pig Roast Pairing Feast in celebration of the World Cup on Thursday, June 19, at 6:30 p.m. Reservations are $40 per person and can be made by calling 546-5800. The Downtown Batavia Public Market has a new location in the Bank Street and Alva Place parking lot. The market is open every Thursday, 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., June 19 through September 25. The recently-opened second location of The Soup Spoon, 1378 Mt. Hope Avenue, is now serving alcohol. Chow Hound is a food and restaurant news column. Do you have a tip?

THURSDAY, JUNE 19 STICKY LIPS BBQ JUKE JOINT, 830 JEFFERSON ROAD, HENRIETTA 9 P.M. | NO COVER | 292-5544; STICKYLIPSBBQ.COM; THEMODERNELECTRIC.COM [ POP ] If you’re looking for something a little different before diving into the Jazz Festival, you might want to check out pop band The Modern Electric at Sticky Lips. The Cleveland-based quartet creates ambitious, hook-driven pop music slightly reminiscent of bands like Spoon but with a piano-guitar balance. Lead singer Garrett Komyati is a fine vocalist that delivers his lyrics in a mix of poise and passion. The songwriting starts with Komyati, but his band takes the skeletons and turns them into full-bodied songs worthy of speaking straight to your heart. — BY ROMAN DIVEZUR

It shames me to admit, I have yet to catch the band live. That will change soon, or I’ll have to start parting my hair and turn in my cool kid badge. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

I know, I know, it’s tough to balance lush and simple with the temptations of the studio. That’s not to say it can’t be done, but an artist with a singular focused message can’t afford to bury it. Like I said, it’s a balance, and Laura Aiisha’s debut offering, “I Am,” has achieved it wonderfully. With her exquisitely smooth alto, she also balances secular accessibility with an irresistible spirituality and a way cool splash of old school soul. Just dig the track “Complete Me,” a beautiful Marley in Motown mix. The expectations I had — Aiisha singing exclusively in the one drop style from her time in Mosaic Foundation — were pleasantly shattered as this artist has blossomed exponentially to embrace so much more of the world and its music. I’ve got a feeling there’s more splendor to come from Laura Aiisha.

[ PSYCHEDELIC ROCK ] Drippers has become a
local legend over the last few years, with a lineup that evolves as much as its music does. The band’s sound is psychedelic, swampy, and full of hooks that make you feel like you are suspended in a gravity deprivation chamber. Not many bands it breathe and grow. Just when you think Drippers! is peaking, the band kicks it in to overdrive and elevate you further. As much atmospheric as punk, they hold a unique place in Rochester’s scene. RAT FIST! will also play.

WATER STREET 8 P.M. | $13 | 325.5600; WATERSTREETMUSIC.COM; THEFELICEBROTHERS.COM [ FOLK ] Since The Felice Brothers formed back in 2006 — with its members hailing from the upstate New York area — the band has continued to evolve, coming to embrace a Dylan-meets-bluegrass aesthetic, presenting listeners with a rustic sort of charm. The band’s humble, back-woods beginnings can be heard in each and every song, through a love of rich, acoustic instrumentation and warm, simple melodies. The Felice Brothers released its fifth full-length, and first ever studio-produced album, “Favorite Waitress,” on June 9. — BY LEAH CREARY
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
“How to Train Your Dragon 2” RELATIVITY MUSIC Howtotrainyourdragon.com
Composer John Powell’s score to “How to Train Your Dragon 2” musically achieves what we hope from all sequels: incorporating established themes while expanding them with new elements that are just as strong. It’s a delicate line to tread, but it’s one that Powell faces with aplomb. The now-familiar melodies from his Academy Award-nominated score for the first “How to Train Your Dragon” are augmented through new orchestrations, lending a sense of grandeur. But there is also a deepened, more serious tone to this outing. Jumping from marching band rhythms to minuet-esque buoyancy — and backed by a choir whose direction was clearly to be as epic as possible — the music varies its influences, while still consistently highlighting Celtic tones with bagpipes, penny whistles, and a bodhran (an Irish drum). Primarily, though, the music is Classical with a capital “C,” giving it that strong sense of timelessness (it’s great that in 2014, a score can still sound more “Star Wars” than Skrillex). The fantastic opening track “Dragon Racing” acts as an overture of sorts, flying through every major theme from the first film’s score in high-energy summary. Powell also introduces several new themes, the best being for Hiccup’s mother, which gets a grand rendition in “Flying with Mother,” featuring sparkling percussion and female choir. Also noteworthy are “Should I Know You?” for the orchestra’s virtuosic performance, and “Toothless Found” which features tense, vibrating strings reminiscent of Steve Reich. The album’s final track, “Where No One Goes,” a song collaboration between Powell and Icelandic artist Jónsi, mixes ethereal vocals, driving percussion, and several themes from the score woven in for a finale that’s equal parts awe and excitement. — BY MATT DETURCK

The Cheetah Whores have endured. The Rochester band has endured the thankless hardship of being in a band. It’s endured the senseless murder of one of its members, bassist Shalonda “Pearl” Simpson. And it’s endured the Cheetah Whores — its own drunken antics, mania, and onstage volatility. Despite the madness, the members of The Cheetah Whores are humble and glib. They’re not self-aware or contrived. It ain’t no put-on. This is the first band I’ve interviewed while the drummer breastfed the band’s tambourine player (her infant son). The band pushes out real, tres cool punk energy and briny surf shake with a girl-group sashay and coo — like the Shangri-Las with brass knuckles. The arrangements are raw and comfortably loose. The songs are catchy rock ‘n’ roll little ditties that sound as at home blasting out of a little transistor radio as they do thundering off a stage — where the band’s lipstick-smeared sneer and walking-on-a-broken-stiletto-heel-bravado frequently threaten to derail the whole affair. Now that’s entertainment. And the Whores — Liz O’Brien, vocals; Therese O’Brien, steel guitar; Meg Austin, guitar and backing vocals; Joey Pitts, drums; 12 CITY JUNE 18-24, 2014
Zeke Lightning, tambourine; and Gary D. Archer Jr., bass — have gone Hollywood. The Cheetah Whores have inadvertently wound up on a number of B-grade flick soundtracks starting with the title track for Roger Corman’s “Sharktopus” in 2010. By its own account, the band has grown up considerably, with a renewed focus on the music it plans on burning to tape for its upcoming second CD, “Whore Amore,” to be released sometime in the fall of 2014. In the meantime, catch The Cheetah Whores live. Heads up: the shows are still potential slug fests where there’s a good chance of getting hit in the head with a shoe or a flying drumstick. The fuse is always lit. The Cheetah Whores popped in for a quick chat with City to discuss, soundtracks, busy versus lazy, and stardom. An edited transcript follows. City: So what all’s happened in the four years since we’ve talked? Liz O’Brien: We got Joey pregnant. Was this a career move? Joey Pitts: Yeah, we need somebody to buy our
stuff. When they’re in high school, spread the word, get the kids to buy our music.
So you’re pumping out fans, not band members? How many have you got planned? Liz O’Brien: We decided to only have one. It was
a big decision. We talked about it.
Why Joey? Liz O’Brien: Her uterus was the only one that
wasn’t a desolate wasteland. Pitts: I’m the Navy Seal of the band, I’m the “toughian,” the ruffian.

[ HIP-HOP/RAP ] ROCK | WEEZER
COUNTRY | WILLIE NELSON
The best part about Weezer’s most recent album was that Hurley from “Lost” was on the cover. It just didn’t live up to the band’s normal standards. But when you have the track record that the accessibly mature dorks of Weezer do, it can be hard to match past efforts. The band’s debut album “Weezer,” — or “The Blue Album,” as it is referred to — is arguably one of the most influential alternative rock albums of all time. Chances are you’ve heard one of the many successful singles off that album — “Buddy Holly” and “Say It Ain’t So” among them — but the deep cuts aren’t anything to shake a stick at either. And that’s just one of the band’s nine albums. If one thing’s for sure, it’s that Weezer’s live shows aren’t short on variety.
As an American country music icon, Willi Nelson stands as one of the few remaining country stars in a genre that has, in many cases, sold its soul. And at 81, this red-headed stranger shows no signs of slowing down. When Nelson played Kodak Hall last summer, his sparse arrangements, rendered by an equally sparse backing band (Kevin Smith, we love you baby), repeatedly brought the crowd — not just country fans — to its feet with the music’s beguilingly lush splendor and twang. Willie Nelson always has been, always will be.

Part of “Al-Mutanabbi Street: Start the Conversation,” presented at Central Library through September 2, is “Create/Destroy” by artist Martha Hayden of New York City. PHOTO PROVIDED
New leaves from fire and ashes “Al-Mutanabbi Street: Start the Conversation” THROUGH SEPTEMBER 2 LOWER LINK GALLERY, CENTRAL LIBRARY, 115 SOUTH AVENUE MONDAY-WEDNESDAY & FRIDAY: 10 P.M. TO 6 P.M.; THURSDAY: 11 A.M.-7 P.M.; SATURDAY 10 A.M.-5 P.M.; SUNDAY 1-5 P.M. | 428-7300; LIBRARYWEB.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY
Some sensitive, yet profoundly brave individuals respond to horrific events by setting unflinching gazes upon complex subjects when so many others would avert their eyes toward simpler matters. Through September 2, Central Library’s Lower Link Gallery is hosting a traveling exhibit of books and prints created in response to the 2007 attack on Al-Mutanabbi Street, the heart of Baghdad’s historic literary district. Though no one has claimed responsibility for the car bombing, we can hardly say that the structural breakdown resultant from Western meddling in the Middle East didn’t have a violent impact on the area. The environment and context in which this event transpired was the bloody midpoint of America’s unprovoked “War on Terror,” which devastated Iraq’s infrastructure. The general understanding is that the attack was a targeted act of censorship, 16 CITY JUNE 18-24, 2014
or more simply put, a way to make Iraq’s literary crowd too afraid to gather and discuss ideas. The explosion destroyed the historic Shahbandar coffeehouse — a cultural hub for generations of Iraqi writers and intellectuals — and killed 30 people, wounding a hundred more and reducing the street to rubble. In an act of solidarity with Iraqi booksellers, San Francisco-based poet and proprietor of second-hand book store, Great Overland Book Company, Beau Beausoleil, almost immediately responded with a collaborative project called “Al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here.” The Al-Mutanabbi Street project seeks to counterbalance horror with love and solidarity. From the ashes of a chaotic, destructive act, a flurry of focused creation has arisen. Compassion swells and confronts ignorance. Artists and writers constructed messages of hope and pleas for peace, angry cries for unforthcoming answers, and meditations on our commonalities. Whether outrage or sorrow or powerful resilience is expressed, the common thread throughout the collection is empathy. “We’re trying to see ourselves on that street, shoulder-to-shoulder with ordinary Iraqi civilians who have suffered so much over these years,” Beausoleil says. If you try to consider everything that’s happening around any particular situation, “you can become completely paralyzed,”
Beausoleil says. “One of the key things in this is seeing some specific event that resonates with who you are on a very personal level. For me, as a poet and a bookseller, the bombing of Al-Mutanabbi Street was exactly that, because I knew immediately, that’s where my bookstore would be. As a poet, that would be my cultural community. So the distance between myself and the Iraqi people just dropped away.” One of the display cases at Central Library holds works by seven Rochesterarea artists. In “Shadow of Loss,” by Kristine Bouyoucos, a series of contemplative silhouettes stand frozen, as if uncertain what to do, and the author’s words personally connect the horror of the Al-Mutanabbi bombing with a bombing in her hometown of Oslo, Norway. The wideopen covers of Barbara Fox’s “That Day on Al-Mutanabbi Street,” reveal fragments of an empathetic poem of fury and despair, printed in both Arabic and English: “Weep. Do Weep. Pain Becomes Hate. You pull your hair and roll in ashes.” “Al-Mutanabbi Street — A Vicious Circle,” by Denmark-based artist MetteSofie D. Ambeck stands upright, cracked slightly open. Each page contains a central circular cut out, ringed with intricately cut patterns that progress from architecture, people, coffee pots and hookahs to guns, gas cans, and bombs. The final hole is simply ringed in scorch marks, razing everything
that had been built up previously. This is about all I could spy through the meager opening of the book, which also teased with a narrow glimpse at an essay in the front, seemingly about Al-Mutanabbi’s history. I’ll admit, I feel pretty frustrated each time
I view a show featuring artist books locked under glass, with only their covers or a few pages exposed. I understand the reasoning behind this — their delicate nature pawed by many oily and fumbling fingers doesn’t make for a lasting object — but I long to explore the full contents of the creation. How can I talk about something of which I have only gained a vague understanding? And with a subtle ping of illumination, I rolled my eyes at myself as I grasped the perfect irony of the situation. There I stood in Rochester’s largest public library, amid a range of sensitive reactions to a violent attempt at restricting access to information, lamenting my lack of access to these particular books. Some simpler works are much easier to view in their entirety, such as the section of letterpress works displayed in the long hallway of the gallery. One unique work, “The Diameter of the Bomb,” by Oakland-based duo Bill Denham and Kim Vanderheiden, replicates the mere 30 inches which caused so much destruction, with paper strips radiating outward, like a negation of the sun. A destroyed street continues on page 24

FILM | “HOME AGAIN”
As a part of its Caribbean Film Series, the Baobab Cultural Center will screen “Home Again” on Friday, June 20. The film stars Tatyana Ali (The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air) as one of three young people deported to their homeland of Jamaica after growing up abroad. The deportees, from the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, find themselves in Kingston with no one to guide them as they attempt to forge new lives in a foreign land. Based upon real interviews conducted with Jamaican deportees, “Home Again” takes a realistic and intimate look at the difficult lives of people who often become an afterthought in the lands they are removed from. The Caribbean Film Series, presented by the Rochester Jamaican Organization, screens films rooted in Caribbean culture in celebration of Caribbean Heritage Month. Films are shown at the Baobab Center Cultural Center, 728 University Avenue, every Friday in June at 6 p.m. “Home Again” runs on Friday, June 20.

revelations about the dangers of fracking, Michael Moore’s films, “The Tillman Story,” even the docudrama “Fair Game.” A common theme unites these works, a sense of outrage in reaction to the abuses of some powerful and corrupt entity. That outrage lies behind the new film, “Citizen Koch,” an examination of the influence of the billionaire Koch brothers on state and federal elections. It begins with a quotation from their father, a founder of the John Birch Society, asserting that “the colored man” represents the threat of Communism in the United States, and proceeds throughout its length to show, almost casually, the extent of the racism that now sweeps the country, most of it energized by the virulent rhetoric of right wing politics. Sarah Palin spews hatred before a crowd of Tea Party followers waving Confederate flags and posters of Barack Obama with a bone through his nose; armed yokels turn up at presidential events; Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and Fox News hammer their vicious talking points, and so on ad nauseam.

The movie traces the sources of the systemic corruption of wealth back to the infamous Citizens United decision of the blatantly biased, activist Supreme Court, which asserted that money equals speech, and therefore, presumably, rich contributors to political causes earn the right to more free speech than anyone else… It suggests a concerted, long-ranging scheme to undermine the power of the people in favor of an oligarchy whose presence already exerts considerable influence in the present system. Most of “Citizen Koch” concentrates on the
work of Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin and his Republican-led legislature to weaken the power of public service employee unions. The governor, who asserted that Ronald Reagan’s defeat of the air traffic controllers won the Cold War, succeeded in abolishing those unions’ right to negotiate matters of salary, pensions, health care, etc., which inspired the failed attempt at a recall. That failure, the filmmakers suggest, resulted from money poured into the state by — guess who — the Koch brothers. Aside from its archival footage of speeches, press conferences, television news reports, etc., much of it familiar but still quite compelling, most of the movie, in the uninspired tradition of contemporary documentary, employs talking heads, which translates into many interviews with the same people. Most of those heads belong to Wisconsinites who apparently voted for Scott
Imagine dragons “How to Train Your Dragon 2” (PG), DIRECTED BY DEAN DEBLOIS NOW PLAYING
“The Rover” (R), DIRECTED BY DAVID MICHÔD OPENS FRIDAY AT THE LITTLE [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
Walker regretting their choice and lamenting their governor’s actions … too little, too late. The film shows the amazing growth of antiunion sentiment and action, which only begins with Wisconsin, but spreads throughout the Midwest, with states like Michigan of all places joining the movement to pass a right to work law and thereby castrating the state’s once powerful unions. It only touches on the real causes of the Koch brothers’ victories and the workers’ defeats — the fact that since at least 1980, union members have voted for union busting politicians, only to wake up and whine about the plight of the worker: power is not taken away, it’s given up. Though repetitive, unbalanced in its structure, too often literal-minded and artless, “Citizen Koch” inadvertently adds to the growing realization that the America we inhabit no longer exists as a concept, an ideal, a beacon to the world. This country never waged unprovoked attacks on another nation, never practiced torture, never arrested people without warrants, charges, or trials, then imprisoned them indefinitely, never kidnapped suspects off the streets of other countries and sent them to foreign prisons, never tapped the phones of all its citizens, and never established the means for a small group of enormously rich people to wage war on the worker and control the governance of the nation. The movie suggests that quite soon the growing influence of wealth will create the destiny of the country: God help us all.
Released in 2010, the first “How to Train Your Dragon” movie has proven to be a singular entry in Dreamworks Animation’s filmography. The studio’s animation division is “The House That Shrek Built” through and through, and the majority of its output has been modeled on that first massive success: jokey tales laden with pop culture references, and featuring voice casts heavy on recognizable stars. But by forgoing most of those characteristics, “How to Train Your Dragon” felt different. Combining breathtaking animation with a straightforward adventure story about the friendship between a young boy and a dragon, the film delivered something more resonant than the lightweight diversions found in films like “Shark Tale” or “Madagascar.” Director Dean DeBlois, flying solo after Chris Sanders — his writing and directing partner on the first film — left to make
Hiccup and Toothless in “How to Train Your Dragon 2.” PHOTO COURTESY DREAMWORKS ANIMATION
“The Croods,” has stated in interviews that “The Empire Strikes Back” served as a major influence on the film, and the comparison makes sense. Part of a planned trilogy, “How to Train Your Dragon 2” expands the established universe in ways that feel like a natural storytelling progression and does so with a more sophisticated, slightly darker tone. Though the series has matured, it’s still in every way a worthy follow-up to the first “Dragon” film. Set five years after the events of the previous film, the sea-side Viking village of Berk no longer lives in fear of dragon attacks, and its citizens coexist in mutually beneficial harmony with the fire-breathing beasts. Now a young adult, Hiccup (again excellently voiced by Jay Baruchel) is under pressure from his father, Stoick (Gerard Butler), to take over for him as village chief. Uncomfortable in a leadership position, Hiccup would rather be off with his faithful dragon, Toothless, discovering and mapping out unexplored territories beyond the borders of Berk. It’s on one of these excursions that he runs into a dragon trapper named Eret (Kit Harington, showing more personality here as a voice actor than he has in “Pompeii” and all four seasons of “Game of Thrones” put together), who’s been rounding up dragons to deliver to fearsome warlord Drago Bludvist (Djimon Hounsou). Drago has been raising an unstoppable dragon army to aid in his power-hungry quest to conquer the world, and his plans threaten to bring destruction to Hiccup’s peaceful homeland. Hiccup also meets Valka (voiced by the phenomenal Cate Blanchett), a mysterious dragon rider who’s been living amongst the creatures as their Dian Fosseyesque protector. The sequence introducing her character is the highlight of the film, and features some fantastic character design work from the animators. The film isn’t perfect: the film’s more adult storytelling sometimes clashes with the humor, making the jokes seem more juvenile than they should. There’s some oddly clunky
dialogue throughout, and I would have liked a bit of development for Drago’s character, but “Dragon 2” succeeds in both broadening and deepening its world while delivering jaw-dropping, gorgeous animation. Director David Michôd’s bleak, post-
apocalyptic neo-western, “The Rover,” begins with a title card explaining that it takes place in Australia 10 years after “the collapse.” No more detail is given about how or why this collapse occurred, and it isn’t really necessary. It’s enough to know that all that remains is the dregs of society, engaged in futile efforts to survive in a world without order. Working from a story he conceived with actor Joel Edgerton, Michôd’s film follows Eric (Guy Pearce), a solitary man of few words, as he ruthlessly chases after his car, stolen from him by a band of criminals fleeing a deadly heist. He finds Rey (Robert Pattinson), the simpleminded brother of one of the bandits (played by Scoot McNairy), who’s been left behind to die. Rey begins as Eric’s hostage, but gradually becomes a partner as the two grow to depend on one another to navigate the Outback wasteland and its ever-present threat of violence. The film has been compared to “Mad Max,” but those expecting amped up action are going to be disappointed. The story plays out at more of a slow-burn, with its share of tense moments, but focused more on mood than outright thrills. Pearce gives a performance of cold-blooded intensity, with a sadness behind his eyes that shows how long ago he gave up any hope for humanity. He’s great, but I was even more impressed by Pattinson, who finds complexity inside what could have been a clichéd role. Cinematographer Natasha Braier contributes starkly beautiful compositions, constantly framing the characters so they’re dwarfed by the immense, harsh landscapes surrounding them. The deliberate pacing does sometimes border on inert, but the performances, along with a great, rueful punchline of an ending, stick with you.

scene is printed black-on-black, beneath a translated poem by Yehuda Amichai about the far-reaching impact of the act. I had noted none of the art books shown at Central Library were created by Iraqi artists. Their eventual inclusion is another goal. “I completely understand if no Iraqi artists want to work with us on this project, considering the person who started this project is from the country that invaded them and occupied them for eight years,” Beausoleil says. “Slowly, we’re making contacts, and I think the time will come when we’ve won both the respect and the trust of the Iraqi cultural community and they might want to work with us.” The bombing can also be seen as an attempted denial of Iraq’s cultural history. “In the earliest maps of Baghdad, which was founded in the 8th century, you can see an area of the city called the ‘scribes’ quarter,’ which has always been an area associated with books and writing, and places to buy books,” Beausoleil says. Named for a poet, “Al-Mutanabbi Street is just the latest iteration of that. The street as we know it now has been there more than a hundred years, but that quarter of the city has always had streets like Al-Mutanabbi.” But defiantly, and undeniably, resilient regrowth reaches toward the light. AlMutanabbi Street was reconstructed and reopened in 2008, and in part due to Beausoleil’s efforts, the world is still discussing what transpired there. Several Rochester organizations are holding events in collaboration with the exhibit. For more information, visit Libraryweb. org.

Elegant in Edgerton
525 Dewey Avenue The house at 525 Dewey Avenue has a fascinating story to tell. It was built c.1908 by Charles Huber, a stone mason, who is said to have worked on the Kodak Tower, George Eastman’s house, and the Eastman Theatre. He may have built this house. If so, he was a master in selecting and working with quality materials. The exterior, a fine example of an American Foursquare, features multi-colored bricks on the first floor and wood shingles on the second floor. The sturdy front porch has curvaceous cast-concrete balusters and elegant wooded pillars with Ionic capitals.
balustrade and a rear servant’s staircase— meet at a landing that leads to the second floor. The four roomy bedrooms have large closets. A second full bath features a built-in medicine cabinet, laundry chute, and small linen closet. Beyond are more storage areas and windows with a splendid view of the rear gardens. A staircase leads to the open attic with dormer windows, waiting for conversion into a working space. The basement contains six rooms including a laundry, storage and “ice room” when blocks were regularly delivered.
Stepping inside the spacious entry area, one cannot help but admire the gleaming wood floors, refinished by the current owner who was born here, as well as the chestnut trim, also restored by the owner. A wide, colonnaded opening leads into the living room, which has an unusual, wide decorative plaster ceiling cove of flowers, that were once multi-colored. The dining room beyond is also impressive with its multi-layered molded plaster ceiling with an original light fixture at each of the four corners.
The macadam driveway leads to a garage and the gateway to an exceptional fenced garden “room” that encompasses the entire backyard, the rear portion of which was once part of the old subway bed. A terraced area with a wooden pergola overlooks perennial beds, ornamental trees and shrubs, a large fish pond, a wooden bridge leading to covered swings, and more gardens.
The kitchen area consists of several spaces all recently upgraded by the owner’s husband with new counters with wood trim, a handsome tiled backsplash, and a new island complete with sink, stovetop, large working counter, and cupboards. A small den and a full bath complete the downstairs.
Located in the Edgerton neighborhood in the northwest quadrant of the city, the house is a short walk to the Edgerton Community Center and Park, a 42-acre park with many recreational opportunities. This wellmaintained dwelling with elegant detailing has 2,526 square feet and is offered at $74,900. Contact Linda Wilson of Nothnagle Realtors at 585-750-5034.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD
Eyes of the Beholder
— Alarmed that its internal rating system
Thirty thousand spiders, led by members of the British Tarantula Society, gathered in Coventry on May 18 for the annual BTS exhibition, with a Socotra Island blue baboon spider taking Best in Show for first-time entrant Mike Dawkins. According to news reports, judges ignore spiders’ personalities and make their selections by objectifying the body — seeking “shiny coats, correct proportions, an active demeanor and proper stance” (which means that “all eight legs should be upright and perfectly poised”). Veteran judge Ryan Hale said winning does not necessarily make a spider more valuable, but is likely to enhance the keeper’s reputation in the tarantula-training community.
Government in Action
— Susan Coppinger, 47, was promoted by the city of Boston in January to a job paying $38,800 in the Inspectional Services Department — even though a month earlier she had been arrested for bank robbery. In fact, police said it was her second robbery of the same Santander Bank in nearby Quincy. Apparently, the city’s human resources office does not monitor mugshots on MassMostWanted.com, but in April, the city finally secured Coppinger’s resignation. — For panicking drivers headed in an emergency to University Hospital in Tamarac, Florida, ready to turn left into the ER because of bleeding, shortness of breath, etc., the city still requires patiently waiting for the traffic light to turn green — no matter what — and has a $158-per violation red-light camera perfectly aimed, according to a WPLG-TV investigation reported in March. The station noted that the traffic magistrate handling appeals serves at the pleasure of the city and so far has not relented on tickets involving even provable emergencies.
revealed that some employees actually perform better than others, the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau announced in May that it was scrapping the system. Agency director Richard Cordray expressed dismay that the system failed to reveal worker disparities that matched up on the basis of age, race, union status and longevity with the agency, and said that until they find a system that proves, for example, that union members work just as well (or badly) as non-members, all employees will be paid as if they were doing excellent work.
— Weird Japan: When Ayano Tsukimi, 64, moved from Osaka back to her home village of Nagoro, she found a population of only 37 people and set out to “replace” those who had died or moved away — by creating life-size stuffed dolls, with unsettling facial features, which she positions around town as if to suggest a larger population. Tsukimi estimates that she has created about 350 “inhabitants,” and, reported Global Post in May, “imagines a future where she’s outlived all her neighbors and only dolls remain.” — Food trucks are ubiquitous in many urban areas, bringing ethnic foods to street corners, and now in the New York City neighborhoods of Williamsburg and Soho, art impresarios bring stage presentations to the insides of 24-foot trucks parked on the street. Typically, ticket-holders (fewer than 20) climb in for a 30-minute play, followed by a 15-minute “intermission” a few steps away at a neighborhood bar, and then it’s back in the truck for another half-hour. One art-truck producer blamed outlandish New York City real estate prices for the turn to mobile sites.
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 29 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): You just want to have fun. Get involved in community events or activities that require fast thinking and agility. Your charismatic personality will stand out and attract someone who is spellbound by your vitality. Jump into action, and make the first move. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): A chance to meet someone new will develop if you sign up for a course or take a short trip. Interacting with new people from different walks of life will have its rewards and lead to an interesting connection with someone quite special.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You will attract attention, but a lack of interest will soon set in if the object of your desire isn’t as diverse and dynamic as you. Hold out until you meet someone who challenges you mentally, physically and emotionally. CANCER (June 21-July 22): A passionate approach to life, love and happiness will bring suitors to your side. Be careful not to settle for someone for the wrong reason. Bide your time, get to know the person who interests you most and see how much you really have in common before committing. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Try your hand at something differ-
ent or go somewhere you have never been before. Reaching out for something new and exciting will lead to a worthwhile encounter with someone who will fit into your future plans perfectly. Personal change is heading your way. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Love and romance are on the rise. Getting involved in courses, events or activities that interest you will lead to an emotionally spellbinding encounter. Be prepared to listen, share thoughts and explore the possibilities that can develop if you decide to enter into a long-term relationship. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t give in too easily if someone
puts the moves on you. The sweet and charming personality that is displayed will not be indicative of the person. Take a step back and observe. Emotional deception is prevalent, and caution must be taken. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): A serious discussion with someone you think is pretty special will lead to a commitment or a change with regard to your current living arrangement. A unique plan should be put into play, allowing you to spend more time to discover what you have to offer each other. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Too many promises will lead
to problems when it comes to love and romance. Emotional deception and promises based on false information will lead to a lack of satisfaction. Honesty must be at the root of any relationship. Ask questions, and prepare to give answers. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your intuition will not let you down when it comes to finding true love. Someone from your past or who comes from a different background will intrigue you and get you thinking about love, marriage and a future together. Don’t be afraid to make a commitment. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You will be hard to resist.
Your changeable, fun-loving, adventuresome nature will attract partners who can match your every move mentally and physically. Plan a week full of fun, games and toying with the possibility of getting into an experimental relationship to see where it will lead. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Self-deception is likely to cloud your vision when it comes to affairs of the heart. Don’t settle for less than what you want because you are lonely or unhappy with what you’ve got. Spend time building a friendship with someone who interests you, and see where it leads.
