POLITICS | BY JEREMY MOULE | PAGE 8 | ILLUSTRATION BY MAX SEIFERT

Bye bye unions? For decades, labor unions have had significant influence on American politics and elections, whether it’s the presidency or a local town board seat. But a recent election in Wisconsin may signal a shift in that relationship. Unions worked to get a recall election against Governor Scott Walker after Walker stripped public employees of most collective bargaining rights. But Walker survived the election, and many commentators cast his victory as a serious defeat for labor. Unions have seen membership declines in recent years and as a result, they face a diminished voice in

politics. They also run the risk of being drowned out by well-funded opposition that can now spend freely to influence elections, thanks to the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. But labor’s political prospects are not all doom and gloom, says Jim Bertolone, president of the Rochester and Genesee Valley Area Labor Federation. He says labor is working with like-minded groups on common issues, like a raise in the minimum wage. And unions have also had recent successes, including Congress member Kathy Hochul’s special election win last year.

Marvin McMickle’s guest commentary (“On Rights and Rites in the Same-sex Marriage Debate,” May 30) was the best article written in a very long time. It was calm, logical, and sane, and should be mandatory reading by everyone in this country. Thank you, Dr. McMickle. CANDICE ROGERS, ROCHESTER

Support plan for Northeast Prep

This school year I had the opportunity to substitute teach in the Rochester school district. I crisscrossed the city. Thirty-eight schools. All grades, all subjects. From stately Neo-Classical Jefferson to Colonial Revival Nathaniel Hawthorne to the elegant Collegiate Gothic of John Charles Carroll to Charlotte’s stunning Art Deco to the atomic age International Style at East to the poured concrete 1960’s Brutalism of John James Audubon to Freddie Thomas’s 1990’s award-winning Post Modernism. I petted an RPD police dog and watched Xerox retirees demonstrate dry-ice experiments at Roberto Clemente, helped an RFD lieutenant time hydrant maneuvers during firefighter class at East and field tripped to the George Eastman House with media students from Northeast. Of all the schools in which I taught, Northeast was the most frequent. As has been widely reported, starting in September Northeast will hold school 11 months a year, 11 hours a day with Saturday half-days. Ideally, the additional time will provide enriching experiences. Community members will act as men City

tors and tutors. There will be mini-courses like yoga and cooking taught by volunteers. Job shadowing with potential employers. Increased field trips, including visits to local colleges and universities. More extracurriculars. Expanded sports participation as the athletic facilities are renovated. Based on my observations as a substitute, Northeast’s model should be paid attention and strongly supported. Substitutes like to think of themselves as multifaceted resources: teacher in the classroom, tutor in a free period, one-on-one mentor. Sadly, we often face resistance and suspicion. Of course, there are the universal hijinks: fake names, feigned discomfort for the coveted Bathroom Pass, every encounter with a waste basket an opportunity to practice jump shots. But it is more. Too many students seem unused to positive, everyday dialogue with unfamiliar adults. As one substitute colleague says, sometimes it feels like you need to make an appointment to have a conversation – even if just talking about last night’s NBA game. Fundamentally, the Northeast initiative exposes students to enhanced adult interaction that is often missing. To Principal Mary Aronson, the aim is bringing the community into the school and the school into the community. In school, students will build relationships with volunteer teachers, tutors, mentors, and coaches; outside, with prospective employers. Aronson imagines a future Friday night at Northeast where the community – students, parents, and fans – join to watch a football game or school play. Let’s give it a chance. DAVID KRAMER, BRIGHTON

Fracking in the Finger Lakes

Hemlock and Canadice State Forest watershed are currently under attack by adjacent landowners to the north of Hemlock Lake who have signed leases with horizontal hydrofracking gas compa-

nies (“Questions on Care of Hemlock Land”). Once DEC issues permits to allow fracking to proceed, the toxic flowback from this mining process will inevitably and adversely affect the quality of Monroe County’s entire drinking water supply. DEC has already indicated that they lack the resources to enforce hydrofracking regulations, so the Monroe County Water Authority and the City of Rochester will need to test and monitor for any toxic effects on the county’s water supply. Btw, hydrofracking flowback water contains an additional 500+ Halliburton chemicals, including carcinogens, endocrine-disruptors, radiation, dioxin, and other toxins that are not tested by the MCWA today. These non-organic toxins cannot be removed using existing water purification technologies. Since water treatment plants cannot accept this flowback brine, the gas industry has become very creative in making it “disappear” as alternatives to road treatment for ice and dust control, and by incenting farmers to spread it on their agricultural lands. J JONGEN

Posted on rochestercitynewspaper.com Dammit Cuomo, if we wanted a freaken Republican in office we would have voted for one (“Cuomo Plan Would Allow Marcellus Shale Fracking in Some Counties”). You better hope that this fracking process is as safe as the gas companies contend (or is it “pretend”) it is, because if our water supply gets messed up, there is no turning back. JIM GRIEPENBURG

Posted on rochestercitynewspaper.com A very wise choice (“Cuomo Plan Would Allow Marcellus Shale Fracking in Some Counties”). Keeping fracking out of the Great Lakes Watershed is imperative. On the other hand, regulated fracking in the selected Southern Tier Counties will permit it where pro-drilling forces are most interested, and in places that can really use the economic boost. Having local control as a fail-safe is another wise

feature of this decision. Once again, on economic issues the Cuomo administration shows the wisdom in listening to all sides and acting in a reasonable way. R SHAHEEN

Posted on rochestercitynewspaper.com I want to commend Loretta Scott for her leadership and the Planning Commission for its unanimous vote to recommend a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing and related issues. I hope that City Council will support this recommendation in order to give the City time to consider what steps it may want to take to protect the community’s water resources, infrastructure, public health, and quality of life. Last year, the Town of Brighton enacted the first moratorium in Monroe County, and others have followed. It’s not just about drilling and water consumption; it’s also about disposal of drilling waste and waste water that contains toxic and hazardous material, about damage to roads, about water contamination, and about the impact on property values and quality of life in problem areas. All of Monroe County lies over the Utica Shale, which may become an attractive source of natural gas in the future depending upon the market and other factors. New state Department of Environmental Conservation regulations will apply to us as well as to the Finger Lakes and Southern Tier communities in the Marcellus Shale. Note that we get some of our drinking water from Hemlock Lake. Local governments are wise to adopt a moratorium to protect their communities until we know that the process and related activities are safe. SANDRA L. FRANKEL

Unions and Wisconsin

The debate in Wisconsin and other states has nothing to do with “everyday workers” or unionization generally (“Walker’s Roadmap to Silencing the Democratic Party,” News Blog). The

workers in question are on the taxpayer payroll and supposedly are public servants. By definition, they seek to organize AGAINST the public interest. As for Walker’s campaign money, it’s hilarious hearing the contradictory interpretations offered by the moonbat far left, often in the same breath: On the one hand, money made all the difference, but on the other hand, that same money made hardly any difference, compared with Walker’s election two years ago. In any event, the American free enterprise system hardly needs to be “sold” like cigarettes. It has attracted generation after generation of poor people from every corner of the globe, and made them and their descendants rich beyond their imaginations, thanks to their own ingenuity, character and productivity — and no thanks to unions and left-wing kooks and cranks. J.A.M.

Posted on rochestercitynewspaper.com To J.A.M.: Regardless if they are public servants or not, they are entitled to fair working conditions. If you like a five-day work week; safe working conditions; fair pay, not slave-labor rates; a vacation, then thank unions. People gave their life for those working conditions. Historically, union employees earned less, so they can receive better benefits. In Wisconsin, they agreed to concessions; then Walker gutted their union anyway. Walker’s win was bought and paid for at a ratio of 25:1, not 7:1. Walker’s office has had six of his aides and associates that have been charged with 15 felonies and three misdemeanors in the ongoing John Doe investigation. The idea that organized labor is to blame for the country’s debt and unemployment problems is absurd. What’s hilarious is that people believe it, but if you spend enough money you can get people to believe anything. I don’t and I’m conservative. TOBY

urban journal | by mary anna towler

War, counterterrorism, and the presidency Republicans have been howling about a recent New York Times article, “Secret ‘Kill List’ Proves a Test of Obama’s Principles and Will,” charging that Obama insiders leaked highly sensitive information to Times reporters to make the president look strong. Boy, “looking strong” isn’t the message I got from the article. This is a very troubling look at Obama and our counterterrorism efforts. Among other things, journalists Jo Becker and Scott Shane laid out a key part of the administration’s counterterrorism tactics: its apparently broad definition of a terrorist suspect, and the determination, by President Obama himself, of which suspects should be killed and when. We are in a new kind of world, with a new kind of enemy. And as we prepare to vote in another presidential election, we need a national discussion about how we deal with the enemy before we go much farther down this road. An increasingly important part of our war on terror is the use of Special Forces and drones to slip in and kill people we believe are a threat. And not just in Afghanistan. So far, according to this report and others, the policy seems to be breeding terrorism, not quashing it. We may kill everyone on Obama’s hit list, but that won’t prevent other terrorists from rising up. And, Becker and Shane wrote, “Pakistan and Yemen are arguably less stable and more hostile to the United States than when Mr. Obama became president.” And while drone strikes are highly targeted, they are also killing civilians, “collateral damage” with consequences far beyond the death of innocent people. Ibrahim Mothana, an activist and writer in Yemen, argued in the Times recently that our use of drones in Yemen is “leading to the Talibanization of vast tribal areas and the radicalization of people who could otherwise be America’s allies in the fight against terrorism in Yemen.” And then there are the constitutional concerns. Take the case of Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen and Al Qaeda propagandist living in Yemen. Awlaki had not only “helped inspire a dozen plots, including the shootings at Fort Hood,” Becker and Shane wrote, but had “gone ‘operational,’ plotting with Mr. Abdulmutallab and coaching him to ignite his explosives only after the airlines was over the United States.”

Democracies do not make war on the basis of legal memos locked in a DOJ safe.”

FORMER CIA DIRECTOR MICHAEL HAYDEN

We found him and killed him: killed a US citizen, in a foreign country, without a trial to determine his guilt or innocence. The Justice Department’s legal counsel “prepared a lengthy memo justifying that extraordinary step,” wrote Becker and Shane, “asserting that while the Fifth Amendment’s guarantee of due process applied, it could be satisfied by internal deliberations in the executive branch.” L’etat, c’est moi. The Obama administration hasn’t released the Justice Department’s memo. Michael Hayden, a former CIA director who is a Mitt Romney advisor, says the Obama strategy should be made public. “The program rests on the personal legitimacy of the president,” he told Becker and Shane, “and that’s not sustainable.” “Democracies,” said Hayden, “do not make war on the basis of legal memos locked in a DOJ safe.” (I’m not the only one who is noting that if George Bush had done this, Democrats would have been up in arms.) It’s not enough to say that terrorism is a real threat, demanding a new response. It’s not acceptable to say that this issue is too complicated, and too sensitive, for public discussion. We are not at war with Yemen. We are not at war with Pakistan. But we are singling out people in those countries and killing them. What are the rules governing this? If we trust Barack Obama to decide whom we will target, will we trust Mitt Romney to do it? How should we respond to terrorism? Who should be involved in the decision-making? How much should the public know? Will we discuss this during this presidential campaign? We’d better.

SOTA vandalism

Rochester police arrested 28 School of the Arts students for crimes such as criminal mischief, graffiti, and trespassing. Students allegedly defaced the SOTA building in a senior prank that got out of control, school officials said.

Xerox wants tax cuts

Xerox Corporation is seeking a reduction in the assessed value of its properties in Webster. The company wants a $60 million reduction that, if approved, would cut the town’s tax revenue by more than $2 million. Xerox also wants the City of Rochester to reduce the value of its downtown office building from $13 million to about $10 million.

Kodak can sell patents

Kodak wanted approval to sell patents, some of which are the subject of an ownership battle with Apple and Flashpoint Technology. Though the court did not fully approve Kodak’s request, the judge outlined ways the company could le-

gally proceed with selling the patents. Kodak needs to sell about 1,100 patents to raise badly needed cash.

Groundhog daze The City of Rochester is marshalling resources to tackle a persistent and vexing problem. Open-air drug markets? Truancy? Yes, but this time they’re also talking about groundhogs. “We’re not getting taken over, but we have a groundhog issue,” says City Council President Lovely Warren.

Autopsy for the crime lab

County officials said that, at the request of the State Commission on Forensic Science, they’ll conduct a thorough review of the crime lab’s policies and procedures. County officials will report back to the commission in six months. The State Inspector General’s office recently released a report that was highly critical of some lab officials’ actions, and the county fired the lab’s director as a result.

Eating his way through Rochester: City Council President Lovely Warren wants a plan for tackling Rochester’s groundhog invasion. Photo PROVIDED

The hungry herbivores are helping themselves to residents’ gardens, she says, and their burrowing is undermining the stability of homes, garages, and other structures. The problem seems to have started last year, Warren says, and she’s gotten a handful of complaints so far this season. What’s behind the invasion? Habitat destruction, she says. Walt Nelson, agriculture and horticulture program leader with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Monroe County, says it’s simply nature at work. “If there’s ample food and the weather’s good, the breeding goes on and the numbers start to increase,” he says. “So it goes up and down, sort of like a roller coaster.” Warren has instructed Rochester Animal Services to come up with a plan to deal with the critters. But Nelson says that will be tricky because

as well as being excellent diggers, groundhogs can climb. “If he wants to get into your back yard, he’s going to get there,” Nelson says. “You just have to make life uncomfortable so that they decide they want to move on.” If you set a fence deeply into the ground, for example, that might discourage a less determined groundhog, he says. Warren says some residents trap the groundhog, and then Rochester Animal Services will take the creature to the end of the driveway and release it. But that’s not a solution because the animals can come back, and they’re usually part of a family. And Animal Control Services staff have warned against taking the animals to wooded areas, Warren says, because that would upset the balance in individual ecosystems.

Penfield resident Joyce Herman says she has compassion for the Southern Tier’s struggling small businesses and small farms. But she worries that fracking could cause problems of its own, especially given the growth in popularity of organic and local food and wine.

FRACKING | BY JEREMY MOULE

POLITICS | BY JEREMY MOULE

Fracking plan attacked Governor Andrew Cuomo’s administration has floated a plan to allow high-volume hydraulic fracturing in the deepest parts of the Marcellus Shale. And critics are speaking out. The New York Times reported on the plan last week, crediting anonymous senior Department of Environmental Conservation officials as sources. The plan would allow high-volume hydraulic fracturing in portions of the Marcellus Shale deeper than 2,000 feet, which would effectively limit fracking to the Southern Tier. The plan is meant to limit the risks of groundwater contamination while allowing some natural gas development, the Times said. The plan would ban fracking in state parks, the Catskill Park, aquifers, and national historic districts. It would permit fracking only in communities that approve of the technique; quite a few communities have passed moratoriums or bans. Many critics are concerned about the effects fracking could have on water bodies and supplies, and whether it could harm air quality. Nedra Harvey, co-founder of the local anti-fracking group R-CAUSE, criticizes the proposal. A few people shouldn’t be allowed to decide “the water situation for the entire state,” she says. Penfield resident Joyce Herman says she has compassion for the Southern Tier’s struggling

small businesses and small farms. But she worries that fracking could cause problems of its own, especially given the growth in popularity of organic and local food and wine. “It doesn’t seem like a rational solution to a real problem,” Herman says. Brighton has passed a one-year moratorium on fracking and related activities. During that time, the town will review zoning laws and enact permanent protections, says Supervisor Bill Moehle. Brighton’s long-term comprehensive plan does not call for heavy industry, he says. Moehle says his concern with the plan reported by the Times is that once fracking gets a foothold in the state, it’ll be increasingly difficult to prevent its spread. “You never know what a trial balloon really means,” Moehle says.

Both received contributions from individuals — including business owners and executives — and political action committees. | Brooks, who is Monroe County executive, is challenging Slaughter, the incumbent, for the newly-drawn 25th Congressional District seat. | For the two-month reporting period, Slaughter outspent Brooks $82,907.42 to $70,086.86. She also had more cash on hand: $688,558.16 to $367,582.72 for Brooks. | Both candidates’ finance reports show that the campaigns are gaining steam. Brooks and Slaughter have hired campaign staff and consultants, and they’re spending money on fund raising. Both candidates have also spent money on polling firms: the Brooks report shows a $21,759 payment to the Alexandria, Virginia-based Tarrance Group, while Slaughter’s report shows a $13,140 payment to Washington, D.C.-based Lake Research Partners. | During the previous reporting period, which covered January 1 through March 31, Brooks outraised Slaughter $252,195.41 to $205,070.55. Slaughter had significantly more cash on hand, however. She had approximately $529,800 in her account while Brooks had a balance of about $252,000.

NEIGHBORHOODS | BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN

Busy Maplewood library needs a new home Maplewood Community Library gets so busy that staff members sometimes have to clear the building, either because the fire code has been exceeded or just because they need to settle things down. “It’s not a situation where there are any problems going on,” says Rochester Library Director Patty Uttaro. “It’s just because it’s such a small space, and we get so many kids and young adults in there. It can sometimes get loud and very, very crowded.” The door count at Maplewood from January through April was 72,761, compared to 37,000 at the Winton Branch and 36,000 at Lincoln. Most of the other branch libraries were in the 20,000 range. All of the branch libraries are between 6,000 and 12,000 square feet in size, Uttaro says. “Maplewood is our busiest library, visit for visit,” she says. “It’s really quite amazing what they see over there.” Maplewood, which is on Dewey Avenue, is also a busy library for GED and English as a Second Language programs. “The branch manager, Shelley Matthews, has a waiting list for all of those programs because she can only accommodate about 10 to 12 people at a time there,” Uttaro says. Bill Collins, head of the Maplewood Neighborhood Association, says use of the library has grown gradually, and is largely

EDUCATION | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

Vargas proposes longer days at schools Superintendent Bolgen Vargas is focusing on extended school hours and a longer academic year in his attempt to reform the Rochester school district. The new All City High School, which opens in September, will have a longer, more flexible school day. And it will be open on Saturdays. Now Vargas says he wants longer hours and a longer year in at least eight more schools by the fall of 2013. Making that work, however, will require the support of the Rochester Teachers Association. And critics doubt that will happen, beyond a possible pilot school or two. But Vargas says he’s confident teachers will agree. “Teachers want this,” he says. “They recognize that our students need this.” The pathway for a deal has been in place for years. A 2005 agreement signed  City

june 20-26, 2012

by former Superintendent Manny Rivera and RTA President Adam Urbanski created a mechanism for tweaking the teachers’ contract by allowing for the creation of “School Level Living Contract Committees.” The committees would be comprised of teachers and principals at the schools where changes to the existing contract are proposed. Teachers could negotiate to work longer or staggered hours, or maybe a combination of both, Urbanski says. At least 80 percent of the teachers at the school would have to agree to the proposed change. “It essentially gives teachers the ability to negotiate an agreement for that school that automatically trumps the master plan,” Urbanski says. “It’s the opposite to a one-sizefits-all approach. It’s quite revolutionary.”

The concept has gained traction. Teachers at All City High School will work staggered hours. And teachers at Northeast College Prep almost unanimously approved a change in hours. Vargas says he also wants to implement longer hours at Monroe High School. Monroe, like East and Charlotte, is on the state’s list of schools in need of improvement. District officials got state approval to try to improve student performance at those schools instead of phasing them out. Vargas says his approach to reform starts with extended hours because he agrees with those experts who say that poverty is an obstacle to student performance in urban schools. But it’s increasingly clear that those students can reach performance standards if they’re given more time to learn, he says.

But city students also need “wraparound” support at the school level, Vargas says. At least some of the added time needs to go to intervention and support services ranging from counseling to help with core subjects, he says. The third leg of Vargas’s reform plan is to make city schools more interesting to students and families. That could include more music, sports, and arts programs. But it could also include a dual language program, depending on the needs of students and families in that school. Vargas says his reform approach shifts attention away from the district as a whole and emphasizes the unique needs of students in each school. “Now when people say to me, ‘I want to do something to help the district,’ I say, ‘What can you do to help this particular school?’”

POLITICS | BY JEREMY MOULE

Bye bye unions? By many accounts, the Wisconsin gubernatorial recall election was an omen for labor, indicating its future role in and influence on American politics. The state’s Republican governor, Scott Walker, angered unions by leading a legislative push that stripped most collective bargaining rights from some public employees. Unions and their supporters fought back by passing petitions to force the election, which became something of a proxy battle between pro- and antiunion forces. Walker won, and many commentators said the result was a dire sign for labor. “Labor is getting weaker,” the Washington Post’s Ezra Klein wrote the morning after the election. “And corporations, in part due to Citizens United, are getting much stronger.” (The Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision opened the door for corporations to spend unlimited sums to influence elections, as long as they don’t give directly to candidates.) For decades, labor unions have had significant influence on American politics and elections. They could help make or break a candidate, from the president and Congress members on down to your local town board candidates. But across the country, union membership has steadily declined, with a pronounced drop after 1980. In the 1950’s, one out of every three workers belonged to a union. In 2011, less than 12 percent did. In the 11-county area from Rochester to the Pennsylvania border, union membership has dropped from approximately 100,000 to 90,000 in the past decade, says Jim Bertolone, president of the Rochester and Genesee Valley Area Labor Federation. Approximately one-quarter of New York’s workforce is unionized, the highest rate of any state. The shrinking number of union members could ultimately mean a loss of political influence. To counter that, labor groups are reaching out to like-minded people  City

and organizations. For example, they’ve worked with clergy and progressive groups to promote a minimum wage increase, Bertolone says. And unions have also worked alongside NAACP and the Occupy movement, he says. “We’re not just talking to our members anymore,” Bertolone says. “We’re reaching out to all kinds of working people and coalitions.” But unions also face a second political numbers problem: money. Simply put, they’re outgunned by their wealthy, corporate opposition. The Citizens United ruling opened the door for corporations to spend massive amounts of money to influence elections. And though they can’t give directly to candidates, they can buy ads and give to large political action committees which don’t have to disclose their donors. Some liberal commentators have used the money issue to push back against the unionsare-dying narrative. They say that the unions scored a victory of sorts in Wisconsin. Walker spent seven times more than his opponent, and 70 percent of that money came from

out of state donors. Yet Walker won by only 8 percent of the vote. And they highlighted another recall race in the Wisconsin Senate, where a Democrat unseated the incumbent Republican to flip control of the chamber. Bertolone says that after the Great Depression, the public stopped listening to the bankers, corporate executives, and railroad trusts. And he says he hopes that today’s voters will begin to resist the current corporate influence in politics and government. A couple of days after the election, Bertolone, who’s also president of the local postal workers union, sat down to discuss the labor movement’s current and future role and influence in politics. The following is an edited version of that conversation. CITY: What did you take away from the results in Wisconsin? Bertolone: I’m thinking that any meaning

may be overplayed and overstated as part of the news cycle. Exit polling shows the majority of Wisconsin supports collective bargaining, but 70 percent were against recall

unless there was some kind of malfeasance or criminal activity. And I think that’s why Walker got back in: partly because they [Wisconsin voters] just thought the recall procedure was wrong. There were tens of millions of dollars that came in from out of state groups and PAC’s. That, to me, is the biggest thing that you can take out of here: that this could be a microcosm of what we’re going to see on a grand scale. The majority is going to come from these Citizens United PAC’s, most of which are representing the 1 percent, and that can really skew our political system. How do unions counter the money that labor’s opponents spend on political races?

When we endorse a candidate, some of our unions’ PAC’s will donate to their campaigns. And again, you hear all over the media how much union dues were spent in Wisconsin. It’s against the law to spend union dues in these political campaigns. The members must voluntarily contribute to the political action fund. So those are voluntary contributions.


YOU GOT SOMETHING TO SAY?

TWEET AT ME, BRO!

But they don’t seek labor’s endorsement just to get money from our PAC’s. It’s because of the volunteer hours that if they had to pay for, would be huge. The labor walks that we do going door to door dropping their literature, the phone banks we do, the mailings we do to our members and to union households. Karl Rove ain’t going door to door; he’s hiring people and he’s paying for commercials. We actually go out and we try to engage our families and our members in the workplace, in our newsletters, on our bulletin boards. That is the value. Even though, nationwide, we’re about 12 percent of the workforce, and when I was growing up in the 1950’s and 60’s one out of three workers in this country were union, if you check the last few national elections you will see that union households turn out [to the polls] at a much greater rate than nonunion households. Union membership is declining nationally. Is the pattern the same for Rochester-area unions?

Pretty close, but I think most of our losses in manufacturing were years ago. At the same time, some of the service jobs — hospital workers, who are unionized — and public employee unions, they tended to go up. With the cutoff of federal stimulus, I think this is the third year in a row we’ve lost [union jobs]. Teachers have been laid off, firefighters and police have been reduced. So we’re starting to see it in the public sector. Has declining union membership had an effect on the labor movement’s political strength?

[It has] on a national basis and in some states. New York still has close to 25 percent union density; we’re the most union-dense state in the country. It’s had some effect, but I don’t think it’s had a huge effect. Can we still win? I think we’ve proved that. We had a special election here that was the focus of the whole country, and everybody’s forgetting that, and that’s Congress [member] Kathy Hochul. Republicans outnumbered Democrats in that district by more than a two-to-one margin; they [Republicans, PAC’s, and interest groups] spent millions of dollars to keep [the seat] after Chris Lee had to resign, and we won it: Western New York labor, Rochester labor working together. I can’t remember in an election — and we work hard in Greece — where labor took the Town of Greece. It was close, but we actually took the Town of Greece for the Democratic candidate. [Greece is in Hochul’s district.]

You haven’t had a nationwide cycle since then; it’s been mostly the special election-type things. That tells me that it can be done, but the bar is going to really be high because of the super money involved. Is there anything labor can do to counteract the effects of the Citizens United decision?

[We can] organize at the grassroots and raise our own money. But it’s a constant battle just to try to get what we see as the truth out there. If they reduce a public employee’s pension or dozens of teachers get laid off, if you can tell me how that’s improved your life or increased your income, let me know. This will be the first full-blown election cycle with the president and Congress and everything post Citizens United. So it’s going to be interesting. This election cycle I think will be a key to see how much damage they [PAC’s and corporations] can do and how much power they have with that money to get people to vote against their own interests. People are upset with public employees and their unions, seemingly because tax dollars are going to provide someone with benefits, early retirement, and a guaranteed pension. Is this an issue that unions need to address?

We have just been beaten over the head. What you’ve had for 30 years is cutting the money from the federal government to the states and localities as you’ve lowered the taxes on the rich, which puts the burden on local taxes. Could there have been excesses in the system? Yeah. But I think what magnified that is it was taken away from everybody else. It used to be that if I got my union members another paid holiday or an extra week in vacation, non-union workers would say “Great, I’ve got a chance to get it.” Kodak was non-union, [so] when the unions got something, to attract the most productive and the best workers, they raised the bar, too. They were competing for skilled work and good labor. Once you destroy the unions, it’s different. The rich are playing on, “If you don’t have it, they shouldn’t have it.” The Wisconsin recall was ostensibly about public employees’ collective bargaining rights. Why should the average person care about the right to unionize?

Historically, in the 20th century, unions had been the most effective check on the excesses of the 1 percent and corporate power. And as we’ve been attacked and the power of unions has declined, it’s not a coincidence that Glass-Steagall [a 1933 law that separated commercial and investment banking] went away, and that

Karl Rove ain’t going door to door.” we deregulated energy and that gave us Enron. Has anybody’s energy costs gone down since we deregulated energy? We were the check and as our power has declined and our power to elect like-minded people has declined, they [corporations and the wealthy] can do just about anything. And they’re selling this same notion from the late 19th and early 20th centuries that they shouldn’t be regulated at all: “We know best, we create the jobs.” Some say unions obstruct progress. That’s a common criticism tossed at the city schools’ teachers union. How do you change that mindset?

It’s part of the same thing of privatizing, offshoring, and deregulating everything. There are billions and billions of dollars in education, and they [the private sector] want a piece of it. That’s what privatizing and charter schools are all about. I’m sure there are people in charter schools who really want to improve education, but a lot of these charter schools are owned and run by corporations, and people like the Waltons [the family that founded and controls Walmart] are involved. They’re trying to get the tax dollars and make a profit. From post World War II to 1980, when unions had more power, this country created more wealth for more people than any society in history. As the power of unions has been attacked and reduced, all working Americans’ standard of living has gone down.

Dining

“Cocktails and food” [ CHOW HOUND ] BY DAYNA PAPALEO

At this particular time in culinary history, it’s become pretty much standard practice to needlessly complicate something as simple as sustenance with hip buzzwords and lofty concepts. Dan Martello bucked that trend by explaining the focus of his new restaurant Cure to me in exactly four syllables: “Cocktails and food.” But even though he’s already made an indelible mark on the Rochester dining scene as the chef and coowner of the successful Good Luck, Martello worried his response might not cut it: “Wait; is that a bad answer?” Nope, especially since Cure’s inspired cocktails and superlative food do all the talking. Having opened its doors earlier this month at the Public Market, the casually stylish Cure embraces Good Luck’s notion of sharing, but in a more laid-back atmosphere and with offerings that bear a distinct French influence. Charcuterie, a descriptor that encompasses Cure’s selection of pâtés, terrines, and sausages, as well as a wide variety of cured meats, is the undisputed star of the menu. The gorgeous, generous assortment platter ($16) might include thinly sliced prosciutto, bresaola, and guanciale alongside wholegrain mustard, seasonal pickled vegetables, and hunks of Flour City Bread Co.’s peerless loaves. The bread also accompanies Cure’s luscious chicken-liver mousse ($7) and a trio of piquant, vegetarian-friendly tapenades ($9).

A few entrée-type items are also available, as Martello takes advantage of the open-air market in his literal front yard via dishes like a startlingly black cavatelli served with tomato confit, fava beans, pesto, and pecorino ($16), plus a succulent citrus-and-herb-roasted half-duck atop a bed of grilled radicchio and frisée ($24). The seasonal bounty also makes its way into some of Cure co-owner Chuck Cerankosky’s craft libations, like the refreshing Chrysalis ($8), made from Karlsson’s vodka, Root liqueur, orange bitters, and fresh fruit. (Mine recently featured rhubarb’s last hurrah; look out for summer berries.) And while the humble Public Market isn’t really known for its evening action, it boasts secure, well-lit parking, and plenty of it. A future scene? Perhaps. But for now, cocktails and food. Cure is located at 50 Public Market. It is open Wednesday-Sunday from 5 p.m. until late. Food prices range from $3 to $26. For more information, call 563-7941 or visit curebar.net.

Dear dairy

The appropriately folksy exterior of Pittsford Farms Dairy & Bakery’s brand-new building doesn’t really prepare you for the wonders inside of it. But take a second to dig the natural wood, whimsical milk-bottle chandeliers, and vintagejug seating at the common table before you make a beeline for... well, it honestly might be a little hard to decide. On the one hand, the store

still carries an array of local products from places like Baker Street Bakery and the Ravioli Shop, as well as Pittsford Farms Dairy’s own acclaimed line of vat-pasteurized milks and creams, most notably a decadently thick chocolate milk that sends many into fits of bliss. But to the left of the front entrance is where you’ll find Pittsford Farms Dairy’s latest temptations. The dairy has made its own ice cream for some time, and now the Corby family is offering that ice cream, in flavors like Blue Moon and Cookie Monster, scoop by yummy scoop ($3.50 for a regular size, including frozen custard and frozen ice). And those pastries no doubt catching your eye are by the renowned Jean-Claude Carvin, most recently the pastry chef at Oak Hill Country Club. Tender, flaky viennoiserie — think croissants and turnovers — share the spotlight with French favorites like napoleons and tropezienne, made from buttery brioche gilded with a Grand Marnier syrup and filled with pastry cream. Sure, traditional American baked goods are also available, but why have apple pie when you can have tarte tatin? Pittsford Farms Dairy & Bakery is located at 44 N. Main St, Pittsford. It is open daily 7 a.m.-9 p.m. For more information, call 586-6610 or visit its Facebook page.

Sunday, June 24 Lovin’ Cup, 300 Park Point Drive 7-9 p.m. | Free | lovincup.com [ Jazz ] How many things can you do with a five-string

bass and a human voice? If you’re Dino Dinicolo the answer is an infinite amount. On the bass he runs the gamut from Jaco Pastorius-like harmonics to Victor Wooten-esque rhythmic slapping. As far as his voice goes, singing is merely the start. His beatboxing seems to include a full drum set. A host of other special effects seem to come from somewhere deep inside. And when he combines a bizarre vocal sound with an unusual bass pattern, the effect can be otherworldly. Dinicolo may look like a mild-mannered man, but he’s really a one-man heavy-metal jazz band. — BY RON NETSKY

DMX Friday, June 22 Water Street Music Hall, 204 N. Water St. 11 p.m. | $25-$30 | waterstreetmusic.com [ Hip-Hop ] If DMX was an Olympic athlete, he’d be

Michael Phelps or the Dream Team or a boxer so dominant that he’s never lost a fight. Up until the East Coast rapper’s sixth album, “Year of the Dog,” DMX never knew what it was like to come in second place. The Yonkers, NY native’s first five albums all debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts. By the numbers, DMX is the king of hardcore rap. Like his best-known single, “Party Up (Up in Here),” DMX is loud, profane, and rambunctious. His highly anticipated seventh album, “Undisputed,” is scheduled to drop on June 26. — BY ROMAN DIVEZUR

Scott Biram performed at Abilene on Wednesday, June 13. PHOTO BY FRANK DE BLASE

Melt your face [ review ] by frank de blase

Certain guitars beg to be played certain ways. A Gibson J-200 wants to be strummed, while a Les Paul is there to reward your efforts with miles of sustain. You pick up a Gretsch 6120, and you can practically hear it say, “Chicken pick me, fool.” So when Bloodshot beauty Lydia Loveless took to the Abilene floor on Wednesday, June 13, and strapped on an old Gibson ES-125, I expected some rootsy, bluesy thump and twang; some rural plank-spank. Instead, this abbreviated young lady standing stock-still and statuesque in high heels strummed the hell out of the thing as she sang gentle and urgent. Her upright bass-slapper was a torrent of hair and percussive bottom end, and the duo struck me a lot like Lone Justice or The Del Fuegos — two roots-rock acts from the 1980’s that got filed under punk because Americana hadn’t been invented yet. Loveless was captivatingly cool, though her lyrics got plowed under a bit by the loud mix in the tiny room.

Headliner Scott Biram, on the other hand, was heard loud and clear as he howled his homicidal blues through a megaphone and a mic to a by-thenpacked house. The man makes crazy a viable option. The set was full-bore, fouron-the-floor rock ’n’ roll. Moho Collective was doing the loadout mambo when I walked into Sticky Lip’s Juke Joint Friday night. The joint was jumping and kept up a steady bob and bounce during Subsoil’s substratashaking hip-hop jams. MCs Mooney and Laz are a thrill to watch as they mug and exaggerate the lyrics like they’re in a hip-hop soap opera. I know: we could call it “Days of our Rhymes” or “As the Word Turns.” Roots Collider (High Times Magazine’s unsigned band of the month) closed out the night, opening its set uncharacteristically slow but still with its trademark weight. Soon it was up to light speed and the dance floor responded in kind. This band can melt your face.

Pop goes the techno Silent Auction Opens for Freezepop Sunday, June 24 Water Street Music Hall, 204 N. Water St. 7 p.m. | $10-$15 | waterstreetmusic.com silentpro.com [ PROFILE ] By Frank De Blase

Within the loping synthetic gallop of Silent Auction’s music lie elements of impish fun dusted in pop sugar. But it’s not all sunshine and lollipops; this is a serious beat-centric strain with relentless drive, created by an arsenal of virtual instruments that jettison the music’s darker, heavier tones. It’s a beautiful dichotomy that the band used to call “future pop��� once upon a time. Now it gets tagged as hybrid pop. Or you could just call it dance music, what with all its shameless shimmy and shake. Labels notwithstanding, Silent Auction — Brendan Bulson (drums), Jason Barbero (vocals, programming, keyboards), and Terri Barbero (vocals, keys) — in some ways is a band out of tomorrow, given its eclectic mix. And there isn’t a booty at rest on the dance floor when this Rochester trio is on stage. Jason started the group as a project with Jason Rowe back in 1997. The duo was deeply influenced by heavy industrial and heavy rock like Wumpscut, Haujobb, and Marilyn Manson. “For us,” Jason says. “It was all about making noise and making it make sense somehow. It was a mix of darker and Orbitalish stuff. And we still had some teenage angst 14 City june 20-26, 2012

stuff to work with.” He attributes the initial line-up’s lack of liftoff to naiveté. “We really didn’t know how to get things going,” he says. “So we’d just do a lot of recording and discussing. We’d record something like a trash compactor and bring it into Audition, stretch it, make some instruments out of it, and then we’d talk about it.” The next step eluded them. “We didn’t know how to collaborate.”

With all its checks and balances, and stylistic rigidity, Silent Auction flexes its freedom in its live shows while staying true to the various compositions. “We try to keep it as similar to the recording as possible,” Jason says before Brendan weighs in. ‘”If we feel a song has been played too many times, we’ll do a completely different version,” he says.

Flash forward to 2004, when Terri — now

to TV. The band has licensed material to 14 shows on networks like The Discovery Channel and MTV. And it’s even got greenbacks rolling in from a Bulgarian broadcast network that has licensed the band’s Christmas tune, “Mistletoe.” Silent Auction is currently in its home studio whittling more than 30 tunes down to the cuts that will make up its seventh album, due sometime this fall. And though the studio is Jason’s first love, he’s developed a taste for the stage as well. “I used to see live shows as a necessary evil,” he says. “Getting stuff done in the studio now is inspired by wanting to showcase it live.” “We have a fan base now,” Terri says. And the audience gets into it, which makes the shows that more exciting. It’s so fun to see the audience singing along, especially when they know all the lyrics.” And, according to Terri, the audience has a fresh view of the music that sometimes surprises the band. “They may hear things like hip-hop influences in there,” she says. “That we don’t.”

Jason’s wife — brought her coquettish trill to the group. With Terri in the ranks, Silent Auction was able to take a stab at more accessible pop without sacrificing its menacing undertone, and found the motivation to move forward. Jason and Terri found each other, and found each other to be on the same page emotionally and musically. “On our first date — which I didn’t know was a date — we just sat and played piano,” Jason says. “I asked Jason, ‘How do you do what you do?’” says Terri about industrial/techno music. “I didn’t understand how it was made, but I loved it. He comes from a more industrial synth-pop background and I’m coming from pop. But I wanted to write what he was writing.” The same went for Jason. It was mutual intrigue. “What ends up happening now,” says Terri, “is I write something edgy and angst-y but it still has a pop feel to it.” When the two Barberos come to an impasse, Bulson serves as the tiebreaker. “It’s all checks and balances,” says Bulson.

Silent Auction’s pop-feel appeal has spread

BLUES | Peter Novelli

New Orleans guitarist Peter Novelli starts with the blues and ends with the blues. In between those indigo goal posts the man throws in zydeco and swamp boogie. He shreds thick and heavy, funky and mean. He’s like a cape-less guitar hero one minute, or a gently strumming Delta troubadour the next, and then he careens into live polyrhythmic jams. It’s red hot throughout. He has shared the stage and the studio with cats like Dr. John and Chris Thomas King (“O Brother Where Art Thou?”) to name a few. Genuine road-burnin’ blues.

WORLD/ELECTRONIC | Balkan Beat Box

Combining eclectic saxophone playing with electronic beats and world rhythms, Balkan Beat Box is a seemingly natural fusion of traditional world-musical styles and catchy danceinspiring tunes. Formed by Ori Kaplan (of Gogol Bordello fame) and Tamir Muskat (formally of Firewater), and rounded out by Tomer Yosef, the trio blends saxophone, drums, and electronic programming, sampling and mixing, resulting in a multicultural rave of ethnic proportions, and one wild dance party. The group opens for Lauren Mann & The Fairly Odd Folk and Rusted Root. Balkan Beat Box performs Thursday, June 21, 5 p.m. as part of Party in the Park at the Riverside Festival Site (Exchange Boulevard). $2. rochesterevents.com. — BY WILLIE CLARK

Songwriting changes are made to broaden signature sounds, and lyrics begin to tackle more serious subject matter than girls and booze. Minnesota’s Motion City Soundtrack is not exempt from this process. While not completely eschewing its catchy brand of straight-forward, fourchord pop-punk songs, on the band’s fifth studio album “Go” — released this month — MCS has tied together the travails of a life on the road into an album the band members’ former selves wouldn’t have been able to complete. As is often the case, that life on the road, constantly playing shows and building audiences, is how a band is able to last so long. Lives and songwriting material may change, but the shows are constant. Motion City Soundtrack performs Tuesday, June 26, 8 p.m. at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N.

Classical For McLoughlin there’s a very real challenge associated with his current work. Among the McLachlan songs fans can look forward to for the CMAC concert are “Sweet Surrender” and “World on Fire” — mega hits the audience is sure to know, and know well. McLachlan has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide, won two Grammy Awards, four Juno Awards (Canadian music awards), founded the Lilith Fair to showcase female musicians, and launched a nonprofit music school. Her fans have very real expectations. “Sarah had a permanent smile after the first time we played through these arrangements last year. I have no doubt the audience will feel the same,” says McLoughlin. “You’ll experience Sarah’s songs in new ways. Especially for longtime Sarah fans, it will be like hearing it for the first time, all over again.” McLoughlin’s career is definitive as a

Singer/songwriter Sarah McLachlan’s familiar catalogue of songs will be arranged for a classical orchestra for her current tour, coming to CMAC next week. PHOTO PROVIDED

“The way to pull something off like this is to do your homework before you get on the stage and to hire great symphonies. These [orchestras] are all A-list players that are used to sight reading and playing things right the first time. It’s not a typical rehearsal schedule.” So says Sean McLoughlin, the conductor and arranger for the upcoming tour of pop star Sarah McLachlan, which comes to the Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center (CMAC) on Tuesday, June 26. McLachlan’s

2012 symphony tour opens June 22 in Toronto and travels through 13 locations in three weeks. McLachlan hired the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra to share the stage for the CMAC concert. McLoughlin (the conductor/arranger) got his first chance to work with McLachlan (the singer/songwriter) in 2011, when McLachlan was scheduled to perform a concert with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, with which McLoughlin has been involved for several years. Both McLoughlin and six-time Grammy award winning arranger Vince Mendoza created arrangements that McLachlan performed in four concerts in 2011, and McLoughlin also conducted McLachlan in concert in Ottawa. “Nothing is worse than having a real lame arrangement,” says McLoughlin. “I try to keep in mind both of those worlds [of classical and pop] and take it to a very high level.”

Originally from Syracuse, McLoughlin earned his bachelor’s degree in music education and composition from Syracuse University in 1995, and his master’s degree in music composition from the New England Conservatory of Music in 1997. After graduation, he tapped a few contacts, moved to Los Angeles, and started pounding the pavement, working from the ground up. McLoughlin says that he’s “not quite sure how it all happened,” but he found a way to merge his classical training with popular music. McLoughlin has since worked with country star Martina McBride and the Boston Pops, as well as joint performances with jazz singer Diana Krall and classical violinist Itzhak Perlman. He’s also worked for music icons from Adele to Natalie Merchant to Cheap Trick. Essentially, McLoughlin’s day job has him surrounded with some of the top musical artists on the planet, allowing him to stretch his own talents. “I try to write engaging arrangements, so it’s not just instruments holding notes while the singer is singing. I’m reimagining what that song can sound like with all the possibilities that a classically trained orchestra has to offer,” says McLoughlin. McLoughlin takes an approach to arranging that draws from the history of classical music. “If it is a slower, more somber song, then I apply dark scoring typical of Mahler or the Russian masters like Tchaikovsky and Rimsky-Korsakov,” says McLoughlin. “For a lighter song, I will draw upon the scoring of Copland or something along those lines. For a mix of both, I gravitate toward the French style, like Ravel and Debussy.”

He also draws from modern rock and pop examples of artists with orchestral creations, like The Beatles or the Moody Blues. McLoughlin explained that a concert such as McLachlan’s begins with MP3 recordings of works an artist wants to have arranged for a particular concert, tour, or setting. The recording is often live, and he often starts by creating a written score from the sound recording of the live performance. McLoughlin uses Finale computer software to create the score and then his arrangement. He then uses the program to generate an electronic sound recording of the arrangement to transmit back to the artist. “I talked to [McLachlan] at length about reinventing some of her songs, about conforming orchestral parts around how she sings, her passion, and her sensitivity,” says McLoughlin. “She was not a passive collaborator; she was very active in the process. In some cases she asked about converting a line from the piano to the oboe. [McLachlan] loves the sound quality of the oboe — its somber, sweet longing — so sometimes the arrangement pares down to a soaring oboe on top of the strings.” In some ways, McLoughlin’s work draws the essential elements from great works of music, and uses them as a launching point, much the same way writers might start with a quote from another writer. “I start by mapping out each song with the vocal line and chords,” says McLoughlin. “Then, I drop in elements like bass line and some initial counter-melody ideas I may have. Then I dig in and work through each section.” McLoughlin is not impervious that the arc of his crossover career is also a reflection of the current growing pains within the classical-music industry. “The options seem to diminish with each passing year,” says McLoughlin, well aware of the 2011 collapse of the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra. “As long as I’m working on music — no matter what it is — it’s a positive thing. To think you’re going to get hired as a court composer like Mozart is a thing of the past.” A natural byproduct of crossover is that McLoughlin brings fans of two genres together: fans of Sarah McLachlan will hear the RPO, and fans of the RPO will hear Sarah McLachlan. “This is art at its highest level,” says McLoughlin. “When I was approached by Sarah’s management to do this, I jumped. This is just as important as a Mahler or a John Adams symphony, and it’s performing with players of the highest caliber in a great setting. If it happens to merge pop with a classical symphony, it’s still at the highest level. I don’t dumb it down just because the two genres are otherwise clashing.” rochestercitynewspaper.com City 21

ART | Dragonflies & Damselflies

If you visit Rochester Museum & Science Center’s Cumming Nature Center (6472 Gulick Road, Naples) this weekend, you’ll encounter a world of dragons and damsels. OK; add “flies” to the end of each of those words, and it’s a bit more accurate, but no less amazing. The macro photo exhibit “Dragonflies and Damselflies” by RIT professor Stephen Diehl and Indian River Lakes Conservancy environmental consultant Vici Zaremba celebrates the “spectacular hues and amazing details of these flying jewels that existed more than 350 million years ago,” per the press release. The exhibit opens Saturday, June 23, offering a continuous slide show in the Riedman Theater of dragonfly and damselfly images, 2-4:30 p.m., as well as a nature walk devoted to the wee beasties (weather permitting) 3-4:30 p.m. The exhibit will continue through September 2. Admission is $3 per person, $10 per family, and free to RMSC members. For more information, call 374-6160, or visit rmsc.org. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY Coach Street Clay 39 Coach Street, Canandaigua.

ART EVENT | Nicktoons Figure-Drawing Party

If you remember Doug’s adventures as Quail Man, the hijinks of Ickis, Oblina, and Krumm, or you ever called your sibling “football head,” you probably hail from a specific generation that enjoyed a little afterschool Nicktoons indulgence. We’re all grown up now, but you can reminisce about those animated days at the upcoming Dr. Sketchy’s Rochester Throwback Nicktoons Figure Drawing Party. Originated by artist Molly Crabapple in 2005, Dr. Sketchy’s Anti Art Parties are held in different cities internationally, and include themed “dames, drinking, and drawing” nights for adults, flash mobs in museums, and more. The Rochester branch, run by Greg Caggiano, will host an event on Friday, June 22, 7-10 p.m., at The Space (Hungerford Building, 1115 E. Main St.), featuring some of your favorite Nicktoons characters. For $10, the organizers promise contests, prizes, and boobs, but you have to BYOB. Obviously, this is an adult party. Free slime shots are included, for all you true fans of Nickelodeon. For more information visit thespacerochester.com/mission. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

DANCE | Scene & Herd: a Carnival of Animals

The term “carnival” most commonly brings up associations of bratty kids blowing their parents’ money on terrible food, tricky games, plastic souvenirs, and nausea-inducing rides. If you’re slightly more cultured, you might recognize Carnival as the festival season that takes place before Lent, perhaps best known for the Brazilian celebration of the more, shall we say, unbuttoned, Dionysian side of human nature. Between the masquerade and the parade, the celebration is about shedding our daily, constructed identities and embracing the wilderness that lives inside each of us. The origin of the word carnival is disputed — the two parts, carne and vale, are generally interpreted to indicate “a farewell to meat” at the onset of Lent, or “a farewell to the flesh,” as in letting go of yourself. I think the sultriness of summer is the most fitting time for these themes, and I am apparently not alone. On Friday, June 22, two days after the solstice, Erika Ruegemer and One Dance Co. will present “Scene & Herd; a Carnival of Animals,” at 7 p.m., beginning at Rochester Contemporary Art Center (137 East Ave.). The performance will make its way outside among the Jazz Festival revelers, to the corner of East Avenue and Scio Street. The artists invite the audience to experience the “structured improvisation” up close or from afar, and photography is highly encouraged. Admission to the performance is $1, payable to Rochester Contemporary; for more information, call 461-2222, or visit rochestercontemporary.org. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY margaret.bernay@hws.edu or kvaughn@hws.edu for more information.

You can live the life you like “Chicago” By Pittsford Musicals Through June 23 NTID Panara Theatre, RIT campus, 52 Lomb Memorial Drive Friday-Saturday 8 p.m. | $15-$22 | 586-1500, pittsfordmusicals.org [ REVIEW ] BY ERIC REZSNYAK

John Kander and Fred Ebb’s musical “Chicago” has been popular since it debuted on Broadway in 1975, but it wasn’t fully cemented in the mainstream consciousness until its 2002 Oscar-winning film adaptation. That makes the show a bit of a double-edged sword for local theater troupes. The good news is, it practically sells itself — most Americans are familiar with the story of murderous, melodious chorines and those undeniable songs. The bad news is, most people have the recent film firmly etched in their minds, leaving live productions with big bowler hats to fill. So it is a testament to the strength of Pittsford Musicals, and to Rochester’s community-theater scene in general, that the company is currently putting on such a successful staging of “Chicago” at RIT’s 26 City june 20-26, 2012

Panara Theatre (great venue, by the way). Three especially strong leads, a more-thansolid ensemble, and lots of little surprises make this a show worth seeing, even for diehard fans of the film. The gist: It’s Chicago in the 1920’s. The booze is flowing, the morals are loose. Roxie Hart’s side piece dumps her, and she responds by shooting him dead and trying to pin the murder on her putz husband, Amos. Roxie soon finds herself in prison with a bunch of other deadly dames, including doublehomicide-dealing Vaudevillian Velma Kelly. But more than that, Roxie finds herself all over the papers due to the salacious nature of her case. She finally has the fame she’s always desired, and all she has to do to embrace it is beat that pesky murder charge. She hires slick defense attorney Billy Flynn, and the two conspire to manipulate the press, the jury, and of course the truth so that Roxie can live that great, American dream: to be rich and famous despite having little or no talent. You cannot pull off “Chicago” without equally

strong actors in the roles of Roxie and Velma, and director Lorie Dengler Dewey has found them in Adell Cuminale Cecconi and Abby Adair Reinhard, respectively. What’s especially impressive is that the two women — and

Roy Wise in the lead male role of Billy Flynn — bring a different flavor to the characters than you might expect. As Velma, Reinhard takes immediate control of the show in “All That Jazz.” She’s a talented vocalist, capable of both belting the big notes and emoting convincingly in the smaller moments, as in the coda to “I Can’t Do It Alone.” Reinhard also appears to be 90 percent arms and legs; her long, lithe limbs and graceful movements make her a striking dancer. Her Velma is a bit more of a bitter kitten, but still sexy and likable. Cecconi’s Roxie took a few numbers to warm up the night I saw the production: her breathy rendition of “Funny Honey” and early scenes hovered on the surface of the character instead of delving fully inside it. But by the time she got to “We Both Reached for the Gun” and “Roxie,” she was on fire, singing and dancing with megawatt intensity. This may have been an intentional acting direction — like her character, Cecconi blossomed throughout the show. Her charming, almost giddy turn as Roxie reminded me of Kristin Chenoweth’s character from the late, lamented “Pushing Daisies.” Roy Wise’s booming voice is a fantastic fit for Billy Flynn’s big songs. Beyond that, his snark-filled delivery of even the most

strong ensembles, and that’s no exception here. I can’t even imagine the amount of rehearsal time that must have gone into some of those big group numbers, because songs like “We Both Reached for the Gun,” “Roxie,” and “Me and My Baby” were very nearly flawless. The challenging “Cell Block Tango” was well executed, with each of the six merry murderesses making the most of their individual bits, and “Razzle Dazzle” became a circus, with little side acts all over the stage. Singing is one thing, but dancing is — let’s be honest — typically the death of many a community-theater musical number. That’s especially true when you’re taking on a show like “Chicago,” associated with iconic steps by Bob Fosse. Choreographer Shelly West Thompson attacked the challenge, and has created dynamic, multifaceted sequences that offer something different for each number. And lest I forget, Harold McAulliffe leads a terrific pit orchestra. Most of the criticism for this production comes down to the nittiest of picks. Timing repeatedly popped up as an issue, everything from some slightly too long scene changes to dancers not quite being in synch to rhythms occasionally falling off in a few songs. Additionally, in Act 2 the show struggled to maintain the intensity that it built up over the second half of the very strong first act. Lastly, some members of the ensemble, and even one or two of the secondary leads, occasionally looked uncomfortable with their characters’ actions on stage. It’s understandable. Anyone might grimace when being asked to grind his hips in front of an audience that possibly contains his loan officer, or to slide across the floor in a low-cut top in front of her kid’s second-grade teacher. But one of the strengths of “Chicago” is how effectively and immediately it transports us back to the 1920’s, a world full of booze hounds and jazz sluts. The audience enjoys that suspension of reality, and the actors should, too. So to the cast I say: embrace your inner jazz slut, and work those fishnets with abandon.

SPECIAL EVENT | GirlsRock! Screening/ Instrument Drive

This weekend affords you two opportunities to support women in music. On Saturday, June 23, The Little (240 East Ave.) will screen “From the Back of the Room.” The film chronicles female involvement in the DIY punk scene over the last 30 years, proving that the mid-90’s Riot Grrrl movement was not the be-all end-all for women. By attending the screening you’ll also be helping girls reach their musical dreams. Tickets for the screening are $9, and proceeds will go to Girls Rock! Rochester, an organization trying to start a summer camp to empower girls age 8 to 17 through rock music. Attendees of the film will get the chance to meet the Girls Rock! team, and learn more about its mission. To further support Girls Rock, you can take part in its Gear Drive Sunday, June 24, noon-3 p.m. at NeedleDrop Records (304 Gregory St.). Help area girls learn how to rock by donating any old instruments you have laying around. The film screening starts at 12:30 p.m. For more information visit about Girls Rock, visit girlsrockrochester. com.

Sex and drugs and rock and roll [ REVIEW ] By George Grella

“Rock of Ages” (PG-13), directed by Adam Shankman Now playing

The musical comedy, that great American film form, seems these days just about as moribund as another great American form, the Western. Despite a cast full of big names, innumerable extras, some apparently expensive production values, and an array of songs from the 1980’s (really), the new movie “Rock of Ages” will, alas, likely do nothing to revive the genre. Although set against the rather unusual temporal background of 1987, the picture

follows a most familiar pattern, the story of the small-town girl who journeys to the big city — in this case, Los Angeles — with dreams of becoming a star — in this case, a singer. It opens with the sweet, innocent Sherrie Christian (Julianne Hough) on a bus from Oklahoma to California, singing about her aspirations, with the whole bus, including the driver, joining in the song. The director uses that device several times throughout the story, turning normal conversations, even political speeches, into song, often with a soloist belting out a most forgettable set of lyrics backed up by a chorus of onlookers. When Sherrie arrives in the big city she experiences the usual culture shock: a series of encounters with some dubious citizens, culminating in a mugging. A young lad who works in the allegedly famous Bourbon Room on Sunset Strip, Drew Boley (Diego Boneta), rescues her and persuades his boss, Dennis Dupree (Alec Baldwin), to give her a job there as

well. Naturally, after several duets, the nice young people become a couple, enjoying the city, the Bourbon Room, and each other, and accompanying their romance with a series of ballads that all sound very much alike. The real fun of the movie involves Dennis Dupree’s efforts to save his club — sound familiar? — with a free appearance from Arsenal, the most famous heavy-metal band in the world, and particularly its star, Stacee Jaxx (Tom Cruise). The plan works after a fashion and for a short while, but the plot device itself enables Cruise to hijack the picture, turning the sappy love story into an excursion into rock-star arrogance and dissipation that, for all its comic exaggeration, reflects historical reality. Stacee Jaxx is the man who haunts a parent’s nightmares, a debauched, depraved degenerate who sleeps with a quartet of groupies, drinks Scotch by the bottle, and sends young women, including Sherrie, into swoons at his approach. He prances around the stage half naked, partially clothed in leather, displaying a veritable Sistine Chapel of tattoos, screaming out his songs, and galvanizing his fans into hysteria. He sneers at everyone around him, speaks only in mumbles and whispers, and associates mostly with a horrible pet monkey named Hey Man. Stacee’s entrance on the scene ignites a bundle of other plots, one involving the manipulations and betrayals of his oily manager Paul Gill (Paul Giamatti), another the

Word to your father [ REVIEW ] BY DAYNA PAPALEO

“That’s My Boy” (R), directed by Sean Anders Now playing

romance between Dennis Dupree and his loyal assistant Lonny (Russell Brand), another the determination of the mayor’s wife (Catherine Zeta-Jones) to clean up Los Angeles, shut down the Bourbon Room, and kill rock and roll. All of that business (and more) clogs up the smooth path of true love between the blond Sherrie and the bland Drew. Appropriately, the movie features several big production numbers employing a great many performers. One shows Sherrie working in a strip club, singing a song that moves through several different scenes, with all the other characters singing the same song, so that the music acts as a kind of transitional method to link all the plots and people. Aside from the very loud climactic performance by Arsenal and Stacee Jaxx, a couple of others stand out — Catherine Zeta-Jones leading a chorus of upper-class ladies in a frenetic song and dance in a church, where they vow to destroy the music of the Satanic Jaxx, whose picture they sacreligiously place on the altar (all the while the mayor himself is enjoying mildly perverted sex in the sacristy with his lovely aide). The two alleged principals of “Rock of Ages” and their silly love story simply fade into the background whenever the secondary characters appear and do their shtick. When Cruise, Baldwin, and Brand take over the picture it becomes quite funny, otherwise it remains, frankly, quite horrible.

In “AWESOM-O,” one of my favorite episodes of “South Park,” a disguised Cartman gets Butters to think he’s a robot, and, following a gauntlet of typically weird events, the robot ends up pitching movie ideas to an eager bunch of studio suits. About 800 of these pitches star Adam Sandler, including one where he’ll inherit a billion dollars if he can become a boxer, as well as one where he’s trapped on a desert island and falls in love with a coconut. Now, I totally believe Cartman’s spontaneous riffing illustrates how more than a few Sandler flicks have gotten made, and I’m also pretty sure that anyone who isn’t actively profiting from the man has little to no respect for the majority of his artistic choices. Then again, so what? Adam Sandler isn’t making movies for his peers, or the critics. His movies are for the ticket buyers of this world, or, more accurately, their lowest common denominator. And Sandler reaches

a new low with “That’s My Boy,” an obvious, idiotic, inappropriate, misogynistic, and often very funny comedy that continues to preach the simple Sandler gospel: try not to be too much of a dick. Unfortunately, the premise of “That’s My Boy” is more than a little problematic. It’s 1984, and 13-year-old Donny Berger (Justin Weaver) scores — and scores — with his hot, willing teacher (a go-for-broke Eva Amurri Martino), leading to 30 years in the slammer for her, a standing ovation for him, and one baby named Han Solo Berger. Jump forward to present-day Boston; his infamy not yet completely faded, Sandler’s Donny is a mulleted loser (complete with rusty Fiero sporting a Rush emblem) who must come up with $43,000 in back taxes or face prison. A sleazy TV guy (non-sleazy TV guy Dan Patrick) promises him 50 large for a jailhouse reunion with his teacher and their child, causing Donny to track down his son, a hedge-fund manager now calling himself Todd Peterson (Andy Samberg) since cutting all ties with a dad who fed him lollipops for breakfast and made him the designated driver at 8 years old. Todd is days away from marrying into a well-off family and securing a sweet promotion, so naturally that’s when Donny shows up. And like most Sandler movies, “That’s My Boy” isn’t about Donny straightening up and flying right; it’s about everyone around him removing the poles from their asses and being a little bit more fun. So cue semen, barf, urine, old-age jokes, genital jokes, a lot more semen, and fat jokes as Sandler heads for relatively uncharted R-rated territory. He’s having a grand old time with Donny’s nailson-a-chalkboard Southie accent, his inexplicable appeal to women (of all ages), and his astonishing ability to keep a beer

from spilling. Donny’s anachronistic ways extend to his close friendship with a scene-stealing Vanilla Ice, salvaged despite Donny’s inadvertent indiscretion with Uncle Vanny’s mother: “It’s not like her last name was Ice!” Would reversing the genders of Donny and his teacher make this a completely different film? Oh, yeah. But director Sean Anders (2008’s “Sex Drive”) and screenwriter David Caspe (ABC’s underrated “Happy Endings”) aren’t too interested in addressing the long-term effects felt by adult victims of statutory rape anyway, and Todd’s entrenched issues, like anxiety, diabetes, and the spare underwear, are all played for laughs. (To be fair, they are all a teeny bit funny.) Then, just when you think things can’t get any cruder, Anders and Caspe throw a third-act curveball that takes “That’s My Boy” from hilariously crass to downright uncomfortable. And I’m not even referring to the delightfully obscene cameo by Martino’s Oscar-winning mother as the present-day teacher. So, no, “That’s My Boy” isn’t a good film, and may even fall into the category of potentially irresponsible. But if you bother to see it — and looking at the opening weekend numbers, most did not — you will almost certainly laugh, and that’s probably all Sandler & Co. were aiming for. So ignore any nagging moral qualms that may try to surface and enjoy the fleeting things, like James Caan’s brawling Irish priest, much-missed SNL players like Rachel Dratch and Ana Gasteyer (but no Rob Schneider!?), 89-year-old Peggy Stewart as Tony Orlando’s plucky cougar mom, a stripper who eats her breakfast hanging upside-down from a pole, and this film’s singlehanded revival of the obnoxious catchphrase “Waaazzuuuup?”

Brockport, Canandaigua, Culver, Eastview, Geneseo, Greece, Tinseltown, Vintage ATTENBERG (2010): The award-winning second feature by Greek writer-director Athina Rachel Tsangari is a coming-of-age drama about a socially detached 23-year-old virgin living in a small town with her dying father and experiencing relationships between mammals through nature documentaries. Dryden (Sat, Jun 23, 8 p.m., and Sun, Jun 24, 5 p.m.) BRAVE (PG): Finally, a Pixar heroine: Kelly Macdonald (HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”) voices Merida, a willful Scottish princess who must rely on her archery skills to undo a curse brought about by her reckless defiance.

Brockport, Canandaigua, Culver, Eastview, Geneseo, Greece, Pittsford, Tinseltown, Vintage THE FILMS OF THE NICHOLAS BROTHERS: Film Forum’s Bruce Goldstein will be on hand to present a cinematic

tribute to the legendary (and truly mindblowing) dance team of Fayard and Harold Nicholas. Dryden (Fri, Jun 22, 8 p.m.) MOONRISE KINGDOM (PG-13): Wes Anderson’s first liveaction film since 2007’s “The Darjeeling Limited” is also his first period piece, romantic 60’s-era whimsy in which two young teens run off together, prompting a town-wide search party. With Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Bruce Willis, and Edward Norton. Little, Pittsford, Tinseltown ON THE TOWN (1949): For his filmmaking debut, Stanley Donen and star Gene Kelly co-directed the big-screen adaptation of the Broadway musical about a trio of sailors on leave and looking for love in New York City.

Dryden (Tue, Jun 26, 8 p.m.) SEEKING A FRIEND FOR THE END OF THE WORLD (R): The directing debut of screenwriter Lorene Scafaria (“Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist”) stars the odd-couple pairing of Steve Carell and Keira Knightley in a road-trip tale about a man who goes looking for an old flame with his neighbor in tow and an asteroid threatening their planet. Canandaigua, Culver,

Eastview, Greece, Pittsford, Tinseltown WHISKY GALORE! (1949): From the famed Ealing Studios comes this comedy about what happens when WWII hits home for residents of a Scottish island who have run out of whiskey. Dryden (Wed, June 20, 8 p.m.) [ CONTINUING ] 21 JUMP STREET (R): Jonah Hill co-wrote the script for this tacky-looking 80’s redo, in which he and Channing Tatum go undercover at a high school to bust a drug ring.

With Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, and everyone else. Culver, Eastview, Greece, Pittsford, Tinseltown, Vintage BATTLESHIP (PG-13): Director Peter Berg had better find a way for someone to say “You sunk my battleship,” otherwise this Hasbro action flick, in which a naval fleet takes on, you know, aliens, will officially be deemed a miss.

Movies 10 THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL (PG-13): Dame Judi Dench leads a stacked cast in this ensemble piece about a gaggle of British seniors who travel to India in search of exotic sights, discount medical care, and inexpensive retirements.

Movies 10 DARK SHADOWS (PG-13): Tim Burton directs the comedic revamp of the cult TV show, with Johnny Depp hamming it up as Barnabas Collins, an 18th-century vampire who emerges from his tomb in the very different 1970s and must save his wacky descendants. With Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, and Eva Green. Cinema THE DICTATOR (R): Sacha Baron Cohen resumes his sly, scenery-chewing ways in this fish-out-of-water comedy as the ruthless leader of an oil-rich African nation who travels to New York City to take on the UN. With Anna Faris and Sir Ben Kingsley. Cinema HYSTERIA (R): Hugh Dancy, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Rupert Everett lead the cast of this truth-based period comedy about Mortimer Granville, a physician in Victorian-era London who made it easier for doctors to treat female hysteria via pelvic massage with — OK; enough euphemism. This dude invented the vibrator. Little THE INTOUCHABLES (R): Toothy Dustin Hoffman lookalike François Cluzet (2008’s “Tell No One”) stars in this feel-good

French import as a wealthy paraplegic who hires a charismatic Senegalese hustler from the projects as his caretaker.

Jones, and Tom Cruise star in this big-screen adaptation of the smash Broadway musical about a small-town girl and a city boy who pursue each other as well as their dreams in 1987 Los Angeles. Brockport, Canandaigua, Culver, Eastview, Geneseo, Greece, Tinseltown, Vintage PROMETHEUS (R): Ridley Scott returns to sci-fi territory with this loose prequel to 1979’s “Alien” in which a crew of scientists seek the origins of humanity but instead discover a threat that could cause the extinction of the human race.

Canandaigua, Culver, Eastview, Geneseo Greece, Pittsford, Tinseltown, Vintage SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN (PG-13): This alternate version of the fairy tale finds our heroine (Kristen Stewart) trained in warrior ways by the man who was sent to kill her at the behest of the Evil Queen (Charlize Theron).

A Foursquare for You

50 Navarre Road

If you have children, you know exactly where Navarre Road is: directly opposite the entrance to the Seneca Park Zoo off St. Paul Boulevard. Navarre Road is one of the sweetest streets in the city, tree lined, with well-kept properties behind well-tended gardens. The historic Olmsted-designed Seneca Park is a short walk away as is the recently completed El Camino: ButterholeSeneca Park Trail, a multi-use pedestrian greenway that was adapted from an old railroad line.

and crown molding. Leaded glass windows abound in this room and several others on both floors. Leaded glass French doors lead to the ample front porch.

Behind a massive blue spruce sits the classic American Foursquare home at 50 Navarre Road. The three-season porch facing the street enjoys a southern exposure and privacy provided by the spruce. A semicircular awning protects the main entrance, which is on the side, off the driveway. Mature plantings of hosta, fern, clematis and hydrangea line the walk.

The wide second floor landing features built-in storage, laundry shoot, and stairs to the large attic. A sleeping porch that overlooks the backyard is entered through a bedroom. The master bedroom has a walk-in closet, perhaps fashioned from an earlier nursery.

The 3-bedroom, 2.5 bath house was built in 1922 and sits on a manageable (60’x 140’) lot with a two-car detached garage and a pleasant backyard. It is in move-in condition, newly renovated and painted in contemporary colors. Hardwood floors are found throughout the house, with ceramic tile in the kitchen and foyer. Upon entering, drop off your coat in the “Harry Potter” closet under the stairs. Then turn left to the huge living room with 9-1/2 foot ceilings

A curved archway leads to the equally generous dining room. A wall of windows brightens the space, which has room enough to host 8 to 10 guests. Another archway goes to the updated kitchen with a breakfast nook, granite-topped island on wheels, and powder room.

The house seems much larger than the 1,860 square feet would indicate, due to generous windows, high ceilings, the partially finished attic and basement (which includes a laundry and second full bath), and the efficient use of space that comes with any Foursquare. The property, which is one block south of the West Irondequoit town line, is listed for $129,900 through Mary Jo Karpenko of Nothnagle Realtors. She can be reached at 585 389-4059 or 739-5204. by Elizabeth Teall Elizabeth is a Landmark Society volunteer.

[ news of the weird ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD Norway is home to perhaps the most inmatefriendly prison in the world (as mentioned previously in “News of the Weird”), but the correctional system has an imminent crisis, as Anders Behring Breivik (the confessed killer of 77 people last year) is nearing formal conviction and sentencing. Officials fear the sociopathic Breivik will try to kill inmates to add to his toll, yet Norwegian law forbids solitary confinement as cruel. Consequently, according to a May report by Norway’s Verdens Gang newspaper, the officials have begun a search to select, hire and train appropriate “friends” to hang out with Breivik behind bars to win his trust and prevent further mayhem. Among Breivik’s favorite recreational distractions: chess and hockey.

— Collections of comically poor translations are legion, but the Beijing municipal government, in sympathy with English-speaking restaurant-goers, published a helpful guidebook recently of what the restaurateurs were trying, though inartfully, to say. In an April interview with the authors, NBC News learned the contents of “Hand Shredded A$$ Meat” (sic) (merely donkey meat) and other baffling English descriptions (all taken from actual menus), such as “Cowboy Leg,” “Red-Burned Lion Head,” “Blow-up Flatfish With No Result,” and the very unhelpful “Tofu Made by Woman With Freckles” and “Strange Flavor Noodles.” — Competitive facial-hair-growers are revered in some countries, with Pakistan and India featured in recent reports. Pakistani Amir Muhammad Afridi, 42, whose handlebar lip hair extends in an arc almost to the top of his head, told reporters he had to move from his rural home to the more secular Peshawar because of threats that his pride and joy was un-Islamic. And the Guinness Book recordholder, Ram Singh Chauhan, 54, of India, offered grooming tips in an interview with BBC News, revealing that he keeps his 14-foot-

long moustache conditioned by cleaning and combing it for an hour each day (treated with coconut-based hair oil) and lamented that he must wind it around his neck to keep it from interfering with his daily activities. — In the spirit of the empowerment of dissidents around the world, activists in Ukraine and South Africa recently erected downright disrespectful statues lampooning leaders. In Kiev and the western city of Lvov, Ukraine, activists unveiled 5-foot-high statues of former Soviet dictator Josef Stalin urinating. (Police in both cities took them down quickly, however.) And South African artist Brett Murray museum-exhibited a red, black and yellow acrylic painting of President Jacob Zuma (“Hail to the Thief II”) with his genitals exposed, an allusion to Zuma’s having beaten a rape charge in 2006. (The Goodman Gallery in Johannesburg, which first resisted pressure, agreed in May to remove the painting.) — Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare announced in April that it would begin a national inquiry over the alarming number of bathtub deaths in 2011 -- nearly three times the number of those killed in traffic accidents. News reports pointed out that many Japanese workers relax in tubs at the end of the day, even when they have overimbibed and are vulnerable to drowning.

Wait -- That’s Illegal?

(1) In Kent, Washington, in May, Yong Hyun Kim, 21, was charged with assault at a movie house. Annoyed by a group of kids in the row behind him who were constantly talking, laughing and throwing popcorn during “Titanic,” Yong slapped the nearest boy, bloodying his nose and knocking out a tooth. (2) In Pirmasens, Germany, in May, a 61-year-old woman was fined the equivalent of almost $1,000 for assault. Frustrated by telemarketers’ constantly cold-calling her, she took it out on one by blowing a whistle into the telephone, allegedly causing permanent damage to the telemarketer’s hearing.

[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Prepare to compromise if you don’t want to upset your life in the romance department. A couple of changes on your part can make all the difference in the world when it comes to getting up close and intimate. Saying less and showing more affection will work wonders. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t allow an old flame to confuse you. Stick with the person who treats you best, not the one who has broken your heart in the past. Talks about improving your home life will bring good results and greater

intimacy to you and someone who loves you. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Be honest when it comes to your true feelings. Your motives may not be based on love, but on what you stand to gain. Truth sometimes hurts, but it’s better to face facts and get on with life. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Stick to the people you know and trust. Not everyone will be forthcoming with personal information. Don’t fall for someone in a relationship. You owe it to yourself to be with someone free and clear of a commitment to someone else.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A love connection will result in commitment. Make a promise to someone you care for, and you will be rewarded mentally, physically and emotionally. Love is on the rise. Whether it’s a relationship you are already in or one that’s just beginning, good results can be expected. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Trust your heart when it comes to sizing up someone professing to love you or be on your side. If it doesn’t feel right or if you are suspicious that perhaps you are being played, back away and protect your assets.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You are ready to take the next step. Don’t limit your chances of sealing a romantic deal because you are procrastinating and refusing to make a decision that can stand between you and a lifelong relationship with someone who compliments you in so many ways. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Share your emotional thoughts with someone you want to have in your life for a long time. Speaking from the heart and opening up will help you move forward. The response you receive will be the signal you need to make your next move.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Make changes in your love life that will help you mentally, emotionally and physically. The choices you make now will help ward off future trouble with someone who has been making your life difficult. Take a positive step to a better relationship. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t limit what you can achieve because you won’t share your true feelings with someone who needs to hear how much you care. Enhance your love life by showing you care. Don’t lose a good connection because you want the up-

per hand. Equality is essential. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Love is highlighted, and moves can be made that will improve your connection to someone who shares your goals and wants to spend more time with you. There is strength in numbers, so joining forces with someone you love will bring you high returns. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Do your homework. If someone appears to be too good to be true, chances are good you are hearing an embellished version of what’s really being offered to you. Don’t commit until you know what you are getting into.
