The march of the charters Josephine Horton says she would have moved her family to the suburbs if her son, Daunte, hadn’t been accepted at Urban Choice Charter School (pictured above). But Horton’s biting her nails anticipating the time her son grows out of Urban Choice. If the school doesn’t expand beyond 8th grade, she says she’ll reconsider moving to the suburbs. Horton, like so many parents around the country, didn’t trust her child’s education to a traditional public school, so she turned to one of Rochester’s charter schools. There are seven charters in Rochester — if Rochester Preparatory’s two middle schools are
counted separately — and more are scheduled to open in the fall. But charter schools are at the heart of a heated debate about how to fix the country’s faltering urban school districts. Many parents view charters as the answer to their prayers. But critics raise important questions. Are charters really public schools? Have they discovered the secret to higher achievement, or do they “cream” the best students from the district? And are charters destroying the traditional public education system? City looks at these and other issues this week in the first of an occasional series on charter schools.

The Bug Jar’s importance
I understand that the recent events at the Bug Jar were tragic and jarring to our beautiful city. I hope that the cause of this incident is sorted out and dealt with in a timely fashion. I also want to express deep sympathy to the families and friends of those victimized by such a needless act. Rochester’s music, art, culinary, and cultural diversity make it a magnet for those of us who live in and around the area and appreciate these things. A vast majority of performance groups, art collectives, etc., owe many of their accomplishments to the few venues in town that take chances on original and unique musical acts, art installations, etc. These venues are an integral part of the Rochester experience and provide an unparalleled outlet for creativity and entertainment here. The importance of this outlet cannot by denied. It beckons many people to put down roots and remain in the area when there could be other options for career and family. We have been embraced by a very open and nondiscriminating environment and are proud to call Rochester our home for this reason. I urge city officials to consider the history and importance of the Bug Jar as it relates to a very large demographic in Rochester over the course of their investigation into the violent act that occurred recently. The venue is an integral part of our community and has been for a long time. The Bug Jar offers the opportunity to experience music, art, and beauty every City
day that it opens its doors to the people of Rochester. We’re a much better city having them stay open. MICHAEL MUNN, ROCHESTER

The bus monitor and human nature
We all need someone to blame. Kids have been shockingly cruel since I can remember; they say deeply hurtful things to each other, they kill small animals for fun – we just haven’t always had iPhones readily available to capture it. I don’t blame “today’s kids.” We say “shame on their parents.” Yes, parenting is a strong factor in a child’s behavior. But then again, many serial killers come from perfectly “normal,” responsible, disciplined homes. And most great people I know came from messed up childhoods. Is it a new thing for humans to act out as youngsters, go against what is taught and expected of them, rebel against their parents’ plans for them? Until I’ve met these parents and observed how they raise their children, I’m not going to pass harsh judgment on them as so many have. “Blame society”? Good luck with that one. We all make up the same population – so, does that technically mean you blame yourself, too? So who do we blame? Maybe the human species for being cruel by nature and doomed to repeat our mistakes for the duration of our existence. So then I guess you can blame Who or whatever it was that created us. But just as parents can’t control their children’s future, Who/whatever created us probably didn’t intend on us being so selfdestructive, either. As proactive as we try to be, unexplainable acts of cruelty will continue to happen, and it’s how we react to them that defines us as humans. After 9/11, American humans beat the shit out of innocent Muslim-Americans. An innocent bus monitor gets verbally assaulted by children.

Meantime, their parents are showered by hundreds of comments about what terrible people they are and how their kids deserve to be murdered and raped. The Greece kids are the owners of their actions and need to be punished appropriately. And the punishment needs to come from their parents; no use blaming the Greece school district or the police for not “doing something.” Preferably the punishment should actually serve the bus monitor: a summer’s worth of chores for her, a sincere apology (not an immediate reaction to all the media hype, but a hand-written reflection after they’ve had several weeks to think about the chaos they’ve caused), and maybe a nice gift, like a day at the spa while she’s on her vacation of a lifetime. And to those of us who respond emotionally and irrationally to cruelty, therefore perpetuating the very thing that we protest: I don’t blame you, either. You’re just a human. WILLY O’RILEY, ROCHESTER
Women, abortion, and the church
The Catholic bishops have declared June 21-July 4 as the “Fortnight for Freedom,” supposedly to highlight the importance of religious freedom. In Brazil, a 9-yearold girl was raped by her stepfather, and both she and the doctors who performed her abortion were excommunicated. The church has not taken steps against the stepfather; the archbishop for the region was quoted as saying that although the stepfather had committed a heinous crime, the abortion was more serious. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been spent by the church to settle pedophilia lawsuits. Every week, hard-working Catholics put money in the collection basket that the church then uses to protect pedophile priests and launch campaigns to create false controversies that are political in nature. Until women are given full equality in the
Catholic Church, the male hierarchy will continue to cling to their power thru any means necessary. Shame on them. Pursuit of power in the name of Jesus is obscene. PATRICIA MEGERLE, ROCHESTER
I was at the Pittsford Library trying to complete coursework from my graduate-school program when for the third time this month, the library alarm went off. While exiting the building, I grabbed the recent City News to read, in case I was going to be stuck outside for a long time. I flipped to the movie reviews and started reading Dayna Papaleo’s hilarious review of “That’s My Boy” (June 20). I was literally laughing out loud. Of course, the picture next to it, with Adam Sandler and, more important, Andy Samberg’s classical doofus face, made me envision all the things she was describing. Dayna, thank you for the entertainment. It was what I needed after a truly horrible week and a half of reading and writing papers. You may wish to reconsider being a reviewer and consider moving to Hollywood and pitching your own screenplay. With your skill, we could have another “Bridesmaids.” LIZ SERLING, ROCHESTER
Helping students in city schools
Thank you for continuing to be a thorn in the side of our community by correctly insisting that it is our lack of meaningful commitment to the children of Rochester that perpetuates the cycle of under-educated urban youth and the continuation of a permanent and growing underclass (Urban Journal, June 13). I especially appreciate your response to those who fail to recognize that concentrated poverty means something different today than it did when their fore-
bearers arrived in America. And let’s not forget that most of these folks did not arrive in shackles. Denial of the roots of the problem or worse, blaming the parents and then just walking away, are what keeps me grinding my teeth at night. I want to believe that the people of the Greater Rochester area are better than this. There are pockets of hope and initiatives that help a small percentage of those in need, but until suburban leadership has the courage to integrate, I fear nothing will change. LINDA LOPATO, ROCHESTER
Mr. Moule apparently hasn’t taken a good look at the American Electorate lately. (“Obama and Romney Shouldn’t Trivialize the Presidential Campaign,” News Blog.) If he had, he might have noticed that they aren’t out in the streets demanding that the two candidates engage in serious debate. Nor are they complaining that they’re being short-changed. What they ARE doing, when they do anything at all, is responding favorably to the “small” style of campaigning epitomized by the use of useless (for this purpose) technologies such as Twitter, Farcebook, etc. A candidate would be a fool to waste his/her time and money trying to hammer a lengthy or detailed message into the heads of those who live in a world bounded by such short-attention-span activities as texting and nattering on cell phones. You want to blame somebody, Mr. Moule, then blame the “consumers,” not the “suppliers.” The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our candidates, but in ourselves! CHAIM DELOYE

What I saw in Detroit It’s risky to visit a city for a few days, see only part of it, and then draw conclusions. But you can’t visit Detroit – as we did earlier this month for our alternative news media convention – and not be stunned by the devastation: the result, physical and human, of years of abandonment by residents, by manufacturing, by investment. City block after city block of empty, weedy lots, boarded-up houses, fire-scarred apartment buildings. Spectacular, thriving downtown buildings nearly cheek to jowl with tall, hauntingly empty ones. Signs in a middle-class neighborhood announcing that it is patrolled by a private security force. Concern about crime so serious that convention-goers were warned, by the convention hosts, to take a cab, not walk, from our hotel to the MGM Casino five blocks away. (Online, I’ll include links to some Detroit photo websites.) Detroit has a lot going for it. The Detroit Institute of Arts’ Diego Rivera murals alone make the museum worth visiting. The city’s rich collection of important architecture includes Mies van der Rohe’s beautiful Lafayette Park and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Dorothy Turkel House (recently privately restored). And despite challenges that would snuff out the hope of many Americans, Detroit is fighting its way back, in big ways and small. Campus Martius Park becomes a lively, people-filled, downtown community center over lunch hour. Quicken Loans founder Dan Gilbert not only had his company build a new headquarters downtown but has been convincing other companies to follow his example. Renaissance Center, the sports stadium, restaurants, hotels: there’s a lot going on downtown. There’s plenty going on in Detroit neighborhoods, too, led by residents themselves: community gardens, neighborhood preservation, outdoor art…. The afternoon we went to see the Turkel House, it was hosting a fund-raiser for the Woodward Avenue Action Association, a neighborhood group whose work focuses on everything from public safety, street beautification, and code enforcement to community organizing. What Detroit residents and community leaders are doing is impressive. And yet Detroit has lost so much. Its population is now less than 750,000 – down from a peak of about 2 million. The result includes residential blocks where well over half of the houses have been demolished, commercial strips dominated by deteriorating buildings, a high poverty rate, and a city government that strains to provide basic services.
Detroit is simply a particularly stark example of what happens when a nation decides that cities are no longer important.”

What has happened to Detroit is unconscionable. And Detroit is not alone, of course. It is simply a particularly stark example of what happens when a nation decides that cities are no longer important and that their decline has no consequences. (“Syracuse Will Be Broke Within Three Years,” read a recent Syracuse Post-Standard headline.) Detroit’s effort to survive and thrive, against soul-killing odds, is inspirational. But I have to admit that it was really, really good to get back to Rochester, where the decline has not been as severe (relatively, at any rate) and the odds against recovery aren’t quite as large (relatively). A few days after we got home, we went to the kick-off party for the Jazz Festival, which this week is again packing downtown streets and concert venues with ecstatic people of every age and ethnicity. (Look what we’re doing in Rochester! Success!) At the kick-off party in the Eastman Place atrium, the Jazz Fest’s founders talked about this year’s event while across Main Street, men were rhythmically leaning and straining, pulling on ropes and raising the festival’s Big Tent by hand. That is how America’s cities are being saved, by individual people leaning and straining and pulling by hand. This nation has abandoned its cities, emotionally, financially, morally. Cities are having to survive on their own, because we have no urban policy, not at the federal level, not at the state level, not at the county level. And the work for Detroit, Rochester, Syracuse, and far too many others – the work for their residents, their business owners, their public officials – gets harder, not easier. Because we have decided that cities are no longer important. rochestercitynewspaper.com

the moratorium is needed because there hasn’t been sufficient research into the impact of fracking in urban areas, and that the process “may pose a significant threat to the health, safety, and welfare” of residents and visitors.
Demolition began on the old Cataract Street brew house. The building was the subject of a fierce preservation battle earlier this year, but in the end, the city agreed to let North American Breweries tear down the historic building to construct a museum, microbrewery, restaurant, and other amenities on Cataract Street in the city’s St. Paul corridor.
Deal reached on teacher evals
State lawmakers agreed to provide the public with limited access to teacher and principal evaluations. The decision has been controversial, since some lawmakers supported full disclosure of all information pertaining to the evaluations. But Democrats and Republicans agreed on a version introduced by Governor Andrew Cuomo that makes scores available on the State Education Department’s website.
The City of Rochester received $15 million from the feds to construct the first phase of the intermodal station on Central Avenue. It would replace the existing Amtrak station and house trains and intercity buses. There are questions, though, about the need for the new station. The main justification is to prime the city for high-speed rail, but the concept seems to have lost momentum in some circles, including Congress.
SOTA students sentenced
Students who were involved in vandalizing the School of the Arts were allowed to graduate, but they had to complete 10 hours of community service first. The punishment followed an investigation by school officials into damages that included spray painting SOTA’s entrance.

Bug Jar breakdown The Bug Jar may have to change the way it operates as a result of a shooting death outside the club last week. City Hall asked the owners of the iconic bar to temporarily close after Deavoughn Hernandez-Ruffin of Rochester was shot and killed following a fight inside the club. Some people have focused on the fact that a “rap battle” concert was taking place at the time of the fight. But Mayor Tom Richards says don’t blame the music. “There are all kinds of music where people get riled up and do things they shouldn’t do,” he says. “We’re after the violence. We’re not after the hip hop.”

Richards says that before the Bug Jar can reopen, he wants a plan in place to prevent similar incidents. And the city might end up putting conditions on the Bug Jar’s entertainment license, he says. Those conditions can range from increasing security to reducing maximum occupancy, Richards says. “It might entail not doing the kind of concert they did before because they can’t control it, or because they’re unwilling to put in the kind of investment to control it,” he says. “That’s a relatively small venue, and maybe this just isn’t the kind of thing for them to do there.”
“It’s a funky place and it attracts a funky crowd, but not a violent crowd,” Richards says. “There’s nothing wrong with being funky. There’s nothing wrong with being hip hop. It’s just, you can’t shoot each other.” The Bug Jar will likely be assigned nuisance points as a result of this latest issue, says city spokesperson Gary Walker. But nuisance points rarely lead to a place being permanently shut down, he says. The city was also required by law to report the incident to the State Liquor Authority, Richards says.
Do property tax breaks for retail make sense? The answer isn’t simple, though critics and some researchers generally say they don’t. Tax breaks for retail often amount to government subsidizing one store or restaurant at the expense of another, they say.
DEVELOPMENT | BY JEREMY MOULE

Tax shopping The County Industrial Development Agency has some thinking to do. After the Greece Central School District protested a property tax break for Greece Ridge Mall, COMIDA delayed a decision on the deal. The school district says it stands to lose at least $6 million in tax money over 25 years, based on a study it commissioned. COMIDA has a different analysis that says the district won’t lose money. The tax breaks would come through a payment in lieu of taxes agreement. But there’s a broader question: Do property tax breaks for retail make sense? The answer isn’t simple, though critics and some researchers generally say they don’t. Tax breaks for retail often amount to government subsidizing one store or restaurant at the expense of another, they say. Retail businesses are dependent on the market. They locate where they think they’ll draw enough customers to be profitable, and they generally draw from a fixed spending pool, says Kent Gardner, president of the Center for Governmental Research. In other words, if a store locates in a mall, it’s pulling from the same group of customers as other local stores. For that reason, new retail isn’t likely to increase total retail spending in the Rochester region. The exception: if it taps into markets that aren’t served at all.
Kent Gardner. FILE PhotO
Dennis Wilmot, an executive with the mall’s owner, Wilmorite, told the COMIDA board that renovation plans for the mall’s former Bon-Ton store won’t proceed without the PILOT agreement. Wilmorite plans to redevelop the former store into smaller spaces. The company is trying to keep the mall viable and attractive to tenants, Wilmot said. To that end, a PILOT may actually help, not necessarily because of the lower taxes but because of “tax certainty,” Gardner says. Wilmorite would know exactly what it’ll pay in taxes for, in this case, the next 30 years. That allows the company to tell potential tenants what their lease payments will be years in advance. But even then, there’s still a question of whether the tax breaks will give the mall an unfair competitive advantage over other plazas and retail spaces.

Lead picture improves Last year, Monroe County had fewer reports of children younger than age 6 with elevated levels of lead in their blood. | Specifically, the number of children with blood-lead levels of 10 micrograms per deciliter dropped from 290 in 2010 to 222 in 2011, according to statistics released recently by the Coalition to Prevent Lead Poisoning. In Monroe County, 10 micrograms is the blood-lead threshold that triggers intervention by public health officials. | The 2011 figure is significantly lower than it was in 1999, when 1,698 children had bloodlead levels above 10 micrograms per deciliter. | “We have been making tremendous progress over the years in reducing the amount of lead poisoned children,” says Dr. Andrew Doniger, director of the county Health Department. | Earlier this year, the Centers for Disease Control recommended a lower intervention threshold of 5 micrograms per deciliter. There were 993 Monroe County children under age 6 who exceeded that threshold in 2011.| Mel Callan, a nurse practitioner with Highland Family Medicine and co-chair of the Coalition to Prevent Lead Poisoning, says more frequent inspection of older one- and two-unit buildings would help bring child lead poisoning numbers down further.

This is the first in an occasional series on charter schools in Rochester. Preparations for this series included visits to every Rochester charter, classroom observations, and interviews with administrators, parents, and others.
The future of Josephine Horton’s family depended on whether or not her son, Daunte, got into a charter school. Josephine applied to two on her son’s behalf, and Daunte was accepted at Urban Choice Charter School. Horton says she was not only overjoyed, but relieved. Now her family could stay in the City of Rochester, instead of packing up for the suburbs. “I felt like I won the lottery,” she says. And she did. Most charter schools, including Urban Choice, use lotteries to admit students. Daunte finished fourth grade this year, and Horton says she couldn’t be happier with his performance or the school. And why wouldn’t she be? Josephine Horton says she felt like she won the lottery when The school’s small parking lot her son, Daunte, was accepted at Urban Choice. off of Floverton Street hums Photo by MATT DETURCK with cars and buses by 8:30 in the morning.

june 27 - JULY 3, 2012
Are they really public schools? Have they discovered the secret to higher student achievement, or do charters “cream” the best students from the district? And are charters draining resources from traditional public schools, or are they causing teachers and administrators to think more competitively? There’s also what critics describe as the “charter school mystique.” The allure of charters is almost overpowering for some parents, critics say, causing those parents and their children unwarranted emotional duress. Even though the verdict is still out on whether charter schools can deliver better results than traditional public schools, one thing is certain: parents in Rochester and in school districts across the country want more of them. The history of the charter school movement
can be traced to the 1970’s when innovation became a theme for improving public school outcomes in some of the country’s largest and most troubled school districts like New York City, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, and Chicago. As urban public schools produced fewer and fewer college-ready graduates, educators, parents, and community leaders began questioning whether a one size fits all approach to education still worked. But it wasn’t until 1991 that Minnesota approved the first charter school legislation in the US, with the first school opening a year later. New York passed its charter school legislation in 1998. Though charter schools are the subject of considerable debate, they’re definitely not a fad, as some critics say, that will burn out in a few years. Despite the country’s bitterly partisan political environment, charter schools seem to draw support from both Democrats and Republicans. The cap on the number of charter schools is being raised in many states. And in some states, the cap is being eliminated all together.
The number of students attending charter schools has risen by 76 percent over the last five years, according to the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools. Student enrollment in charter schools jumped from 1,165,200 in the 2006 to 2007 school year, to 2,035,261 in 2011 to 2012, says the NACPS. Over the same period, the number of charter schools in the US grew from 3,999 to 5,627, with more than 520 new schools opening this year. Locally, more than 2,200 Rochester students were enrolled in seven charter schools at the beginning of the 2011 to 2012 school year, say Rochester school district officials. And at least two more charters are expected to open in the city in September. The demand is high. Most of the Rochester schools have waiting lists for students who didn’t win a lottery, but are called when vacancies occur. Charter schools are public schools financed with public funding. The framework for approving and operating charter schools is usually determined at the state level. In New York, for example, applications for new charter schools can be approved by either the Board of Trustees for the State University of New York, or New York State Board of Regents. And nearly embossed on the schools’ charter documents is the right to autonomy from local school district authorities, oversight, and regulations. “There is a Perestroika happening in education, where you’re not having only the top-down model,” says Steve Mancini, a spokesperson for the Knowledge is Power Program. KIPP has 109 charter schools in 20 states and Washington, D.C., serving 33,000 students. But does this emphasis on autonomy explain why so many parents are attracted to charters? No, but autonomy lays the ground work, since the schools’ founders are free to
adopt an existing education model, or to innovate and create something new. And that provides parents with choices: the real engine driving the charter school movement. “Parents are often the first to recognize the needs of their children, and usually know best when it comes to identifying a learning environment that would allow their children to thrive,” says Michelle Rhee. The fiery former chancellor of Washington, D.C.’s schools is founder and CEO of StudentsFirst, an education advocacy group. “Public charter schools help to empower parents with public school choice, so they can select the school environment that is best for their children,” Rhee says. People are just beginning to understand charter schools, says Marci Weber, a parent at Urban Choice. Weber says parents need more high-quality education options for their children and charter schools help fill that need. They’re not the regimented, standardized testing hives that critics have portrayed, she says. Weber’s son, George, is in third grade at Urban Choice, where he’s taking fourth-grade math and doing fine, she says. “It should be your choice where you send your child to school based on what you think they need,” she says. “Every kid doesn’t fit neatly into every school. Every kid is different, and I think you as a parent need to find out what’s out there.” But charter schools offer more than just an
alternative to traditional public schools. One of their key advantages is their self-styled approach to education. Parents have a range of choices, even among charters in Rochester: from relaxed schools with fewer restrictions, to schools with highly structured environments. For example, the Genesee Community Charter School, a K to 6 school, uses the Expeditionary Learning model, which is based on the work of German educator Kurt Hahn. Students engage in interdisciplinary research, often on issues relevant to the community. And they frequently venture into the community to conduct field work, which becomes the basis of their publications and presentations. Tours of Genesee Community are often lead by the students, and the school’s leader, Lisa Wing, probably wouldn’t be able to hire a better promotional team. Their carefully thought out and earnestly delivered descriptions of the school’s activities could close the deal with even the most skeptical parents. Genesee Community has two teachers to a classroom with as many as 30 students, which allows teachers to break students into smaller learning groups. “One teacher may have a small group of five who need some intervention, while the other teacher takes the other 25,” Wing says. “That co-teaching model allows for flexibility in meeting kids’ needs. And it allows us to really be where the child is.”
at a glance
Charters are public schools that operate autonomously of the district in which they’re located. There are seven that are part of the Rochester school district.

It also allows teachers to deal with discipline issues without interrupting the entire class, Wing says. But is Genesee Community a good fit for every child? “I think kids who need a lot of structure, a lot of predictability from day to day, and less stimulation around them, it’s probably not right for them,” Wing says. “But that’s not that many children.” University Preparatory Charter for Young Men, an all-boys middle school, offers something entirely different. Long gone is the rustle of nuns’ robes, and the alcoves that once dressed the hallways with statues of saints are bare. But University Prep’s dress code is a reminder of the building’s beginnings as a Catholic school. “Boys wear uniforms,” says Joseph Munno, the school’s principal. “Shirt and ties, dress pants, and shoes are required every day. No sneakers, no head gear, and no jewelry are allowed.” Munno says he doesn’t take anything for granted, including that the young boys know how to dress professionally. “I want them to understand as early as 7th grade that your appearance is everything,” Munno says. “Your cleanliness counts. When you enter the world of work, when you’re applying for college, you need to impress the other person you’re meeting before you even open your mouth to speak.” Munno, a former principal at Rochester’s John Marshall High School, says he’s often asked why University Prep is for boys only. “When we decided to open a charter school, we said, ‘What’s the neediest population?’” Munno says. “It’s the boys. Every strike is against urban boys. Their truancy is higher, their dropout rate is higher, and their getting into trouble is higher. And with all respect to the females, eliminating the girls from the school brings out the best in the boys. They participate. They speak and read out loud. And they don’t make fun of each other.” The school focuses on three things: reading, writing, and math.
“The rigor here is not just to be able to get into college,” Munno says. “This is the thing that hurts urban kids. We can find a college for them. We can even get them in. But so many of them don’t have the skills needed to survive as a college student. That’s our focus here.” Even more highly structured is Rochester Preparatory, which has two middle schools and an elementary school in Rochester. The schools are managed by Uncommon Schools, which has 28 charter schools in New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts. Long strips of tape mark the hallway floors to show students where they should line up and stand after leaving their classrooms. Students quickly form a tight and straight line and wait for the next direction, their feet barely making a sound on the floor. Their teachers walk past them, almost like an inspector. A gentle reminder will draw students’ heads up straight and eyes to the front. “We believe that learning should be fun, but that doesn’t mean it’s a laugh riot,” says Anna Hall, Rochester Prep’s chief operating officer. Eugenio Maria de Hostos is another example of the diversity of Rochester’s charter schools. The K to 7 school has taken what is sometimes a controversial approach to education by offering a dual language curriculum with instruction in Spanish and English. But its founders say the approach is critically important because a lack of communication skills can lead to isolation and low student achievement. Having a school like Eugenio Maria de Hostos empowers parents in Rochester’s Latino community, says Julio Vazquez Sr., president of the school’s board of directors. It’s hard enough to engage parents, but it further intimidates them when they come to a school and don’t understand what’s happening, he says. “Bilingualism is not a disadvantage,” Vazquez says. “It’s an asset for our students.”

CHARTERS continues from page 7
For example, they tend to be small schools, having fewer than 1,000 students. Some of Rochester’s charters are still growing into their full capacity, and currently have enrollments of several hundred students. Some will stay at fewer than 500 students by design. But it’s mostly a myth that charter schools have smaller classes. Genesee Community, for example, has as many as 30 students to a classroom. But charter schools frequently have more teachers and adults working with those students. Charters tend to open in poor neighborhoods in large urban school districts. Though they typically give preference to city students from lowincome households, suburban families can apply, too. And most charters have longer school days and longer school years, with less vacation and seasonal breaks. Some charters have Saturday classes or tutoring. “The average low-income student entering kindergarten has a significant word deficit,” says Rochester Prep’s Hall. “So what I would argue is that you cannot address that with the typical repertoire. Our elementary students go to school from 7:30 [a.m.] to 4:30[ p.m.]. And elementary students don’t have naps and recess. We believe school is for learning.” University Preparatory has longer school days, too. And it doesn’t stop there. “I have after-school tutoring and Saturday morning tutoring,” Munno says. He also arranged for his students to go to St. John Fisher College for 20 days of intensive preparation for their Regents exams “I think we’re putting in the support needed to succeed, and the boys know that,” Munno says. The longer hours of instruction and intense academic workouts pay off in better student outcomes in some charter schools, but not all. Some charters are showing higher student achievement than others, and some are struggling to improve student performance, just like their colleagues in city schools. Rochester has also seen two of its charters close due to poor student performance. “We have outperformed the district in every test, in every grade, in every year we’ve been open,” says Rochester Prep’s Hall. Though Hall is correct, there’s a caveat. The district’s low graduation rate — less than 50 percent again this year — and its low student test scores are well known. But comparing the performance of a small charter school to the performance of a district of many schools is unfair, say advocates of traditional public schools. There are excellent schools within the district, too. And a better comparison might be a charter school to a similar city school. City

For example, School 58 offers an Expeditionary Learning model similar to some charter schools, and 58 is extremely popular with parents. Perhaps the most controversial characteristic shared by charter schools is that, in most cases, teachers and administrators are not represented by a labor union. Charter school leaders tend to view this as a big advantage. “Teachers in this school work extremely hard,” says University Prep’s Munno. “They work at the pleasure of the principal. It’s more difficult to work with an at-will contract than a collective bargaining contract. It just is. You’re held more accountable.” If a teacher isn’t a good fit, he or she is out, Munno says. Not only can charter school leaders identify an ineffective teacher quicker, it’s also easier to identify a teacher who isn’t right for the school’s culture, or doesn’t excel at the style of teaching the school promotes. That teacher can be terminated and replaced relatively quickly. Months and in some cases years of haggling over the nuances of an employee’s performance — a major criticism of most traditional public schools — is not an issue for the typical charter school. The lack of a union dynamic is also in keeping with the autonomy factor that is so important to charter schools. Charter school leaders say they have a nimbleness and flexibility that allows for quick decisions. Bargaining units add another huge layer of bureaucracy to central offices in large urban districts that are already anchored with too many rules and regulations, they say. Simple decisions like purchasing a copier or taking students to a movie or on a field trip become mountainous in traditional public schools, says John Bliss, CEO and founder of Urban Choice. And that discourages teachers and principals, he says. Charter schools also tend to have some
criticisms in common. The most frequent is that they “skim” or “cream” students from their districts, which gives them an unfair advantage
when it comes to student performance. And they do it in a variety of ways, critics say. The fact that parents fill out an application to a charter indicates to some critics that the parents are more involved in their child’s education. That child is therefore likely to come from a more stable surrounding, and the parent is more likely to cover the basics, like making sure the child is rested and that homework is done, critics say. But advocates of charter schools say this is nonsense. Parents have to complete an application to enroll their child in any school, they say. And some of the leaders of Rochester’s charters say that they struggle with parent involvement in their schools, too. And much of it is for the same reason teachers and principals cite in city schools: many city parents are poor, and they don’t have jobs with flexible work schedules. But teachers and principals in charters seem to place a huge emphasis on forging partnerships with parents. University Preparatory’s Munno says he is constantly networking with parents. And parents don’t need appointments to meet their child’s teachers. Between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., University Prep’s door is always open to them, Munno says. “I say, ‘You can come any day in those hours and I will bring all of your kid’s teachers to the table,’” he says. And Munno says he asks parents to visit often, and not just when there are problems. “I absolutely believe in celebrations for achievement,” he says. “And I tell them, ‘When I celebrate your child’s success, you need to be here and do it with me.’ And they come out.” Hall at Rochester Prep says that her teachers spend a lot of time changing parents’ perceptions about education. “A lot of families have had a pretty negative school experience,” she says. Critics who say that charter schools have an advantage because of more involved parents are only looking at one aspect of what that means, Hall says.
“The flipside to that argument is that people can leave,” she says. The more involved and borderline middle class parent can be more discerning and demanding, Hall says. “They know they have options,” she says. “Their only tool is advocacy and they will use it. If you’re a hammer, everything is a nail.” But critics say charter schools also cream by not accepting every student. Children with severe behavioral problems, learning challenges, or physical handicaps can be turned away, more or less “cleansing” the pool of students. The criticism stings some of Rochester’s charter school leaders, and they all insist it isn’t true, with a bit of qualification. Their lotteries typically don’t reveal much about the child’s capabilities. And each of the charters enrolls students with issues ranging from socialemotional to autism, they say. But students with severe physical handicaps can receive more services at the city school district, say the charter leaders. “I do disagree that we cream,” says Rochester Prep’s Anna Hall. “We do take every child. If a child has some behavior problems, then he’s a child. All children make bad decisions. But we do not have the capacity to work with the most physically handicapped children, nor do I think we’re the best place for them. Just the same way, if you want a bilingual program, we’re not a bilingual program. And if you want an arts focused program, we’re not an arts focused program.” But at least two of the charter schools’ leaders say that parents are not always dissuaded. Sometimes the charter school environment is more important to them than the district’s services, they say. The most inflammatory criticism of charter schools is that they’re sabotaging traditional
public schools. The legislation that created charter schools was often sold as a way to provide school districts with “incubators” for experimentation; their autonomous nature
would provide lessons to help improve traditional public schools. But instead of helping public schools, charters are draining them of their resources, critics say. And charter schools are permitted to operate like private schools, while being underwritten by taxpayers. “I think the charters’ position is sufficiently well thought out,” says Adam Urbanski, president of the Rochester Teachers Association. “It helps the few.” Charter critics say the schools have opened the door to privatization, and their backers’ real interests are in making money on everything from textbook publishing to real estate. And they warn that the country is witnessing the slow death of the traditional public school system. Millions of dollars are being diverted away from ailing urban schools, which have become portals for money to pass through to other organizations, they say. And it’s more than just the money that public schools receive from the state. Funding for educational grants is being diluted, and there are rising hard costs to bear, too, such as energy. Another example: in Rochester, the city school district assists charters with transportation, which is one of the district’s biggest budgetary expenses. And the loss of city students to charter schools could make it difficult to plan for future infrastructure, manpower, and programs, some school officials say. But education reformers say the “draining resources” claim is an over the top response to healthy and much needed competition. Traditional public schools have learned plenty from charter schools during the last 20 years, they say, such as the need for extended hours of instruction and having more educational choices. But it’s up to school boards, administrators, and unions to apply these lessons, they say. When Fed Ex began offering nextday delivery, nobody thought the postal service could compete, says KIPP’s Steve Mancini. “Not only did other groups come in and offer next-day mail, but you saw the US Postal Service offer next-day mail,” he says. “And I think that’s what we’re seeing.” Thirty years from now, education historians will say that charter schools did for poor urban families what Ralph Nader did for US consumers: gave them better options, Mancini says. “Demographics should not dictate destiny,” he says. When charter school critics say that public schools are losing money and students, the big question is why, Mancini says. “You can figure it out or wage war with these schools,” he says.

only one of these that has any English on it at all advertises “House Special Dumplings,” suggesting that the other notices are for similarly exciting and tasty dishes. While the menu looks like any other pan-Asian place in town, offering an array of Chinese, Thai, and Vietnamese dishes along with terrifically good bubble tea and dim sum, there are several hints that this is not at all a typical restaurant.

A taste of Chinatown White Swans Asia Caffe 798 S. Clinton Ave. 270-4431 Sunday-Thursday 9 a.m.-9:30 p.m., Friday-Saturday 9 a.m.-10:30 p.m. [ review ] by JAMES LEACH
In the restaurant industry, you often hear about “turn-key operations.” These are businesses in which the owner (or his creditors) sell the entire restaurant — everything from the tables, chairs, kitchen appliances, and pots and pans on down to the dishes, silverware, and linens — for one price. All the new owner, theoretically, has to do with his new restaurant is sweep up a bit, change the sign, turn on the lights, and open the doors. The property at 798 South Clinton Avenue is such a restaurant. Over the past several years it has been a Mediterranean restaurant and then a short-lived pan-Asian place opened up by the former chef at the South Wedge Diner who struck out on his own, and
then struck out in early April 2011. Rui Hunag Mai, the new owner of the property, opened White Swans Asia Caffe only about a month after South City Garden closed last year, and there’s every indication that he’s going to be there for a long time, offering very good panAsian cuisine at what he accurately describes as among the first of a “new generation of Asian restaurants” in the Rochester area. Those who dined at South City Garden won’t notice any significant changes in the interior of White Swans. The dining room still has a vaguely Miami nightclub-café sort of feel to it, with a smattering of Chinese figurines — dragons, a laughing Buddha, a frog with coins in its mouth — and bamboo plants scattered here and there. Right inside the front door are two things worth noting, though: a monumental red-lacquer shrine carefully tended to by the staff each morning, and a display case full of Chinese breads, cakes, and pastries. Observant diners will also notice an array of hand-written signs — in Chinese characters, alas — tacked up behind the cash register. The
bubble-tea craze has pretty much peaked in our area, but most places that sell it use powders and concentrates rather than fresh juices in making the drinks (that’s what gives them their vivid hues and one-dimensional flavors). White Swans uses fresh fruit, pureed to order for each drink (I once glimpsed a waitress wrestling a huge watermelon out the kitchen door and over to the blender). The results speak for themselves. The colors aren’t as bright, but the flavors are the essence of fresh fruit punctuated by the pleasant pop of black-tea-soaked tapioca pearls. While enjoying your bubble tea, look closely at the menu. You’ll immediately notice that English is really the second language here. Chinese — Mandarin, for the most part — is the lingua franca, and that’s how most of your fellow diners communicate their orders to the wait staff. Ignore the traffic on Clinton Avenue outside, and you could just as easily be in Chinatown in New York City or Toronto. For many diners, the big draw at White Swans is the dim sum. There are only a handful of places in the city that offer this a la carte dining experience, and an even smaller number that offer it every day (it’s mostly a weekend thing). At White Swans, dim sum is available daily and the menu is a good one, offering the usual steamed and fried dumplings along with flat noodles wrapped around shrimp or beef, congee, and “chicken paws” (stewed chicken feet — a dish that, presumably, you have to grow up with to have a taste for).
Mai is both the owner and the chef at White
Swans, and he makes everything that he can from scratch. Trained in kitchens in China and in New York City (he worked in Chinatown for several years before coming up to Rochester because the air was better up here), Mai makes his own dim sum skins. That means that the “shells” of fried dumplings come out lighter and almost translucent, and the skins on steamed dumplings have an almost fluffy texture to them. Of particular note are the “House Special Dumplings” ($4.50). Available both steamed and fried, these pork, shrimp, leek, scallion, and water-chestnut dumplings are enclosed in wheat-and-egg-based skins and served with a dish of soy sauce mixed with red vinegar and a whisper of chili oil. Although you would do well to let them cool just a bit before biting into them (this is true of the fried ones in particular), the flavors pop in your mouth, the pork and shrimp distinct, tasty, and well complemented by the oniony goodness of leek and scallion. Mai also makes his own noodles. In my mind, I pictured him stretching and twisting balls of dough as I’ve seen it done on the very cool extra features included in the DVD version of “Kung-Fu Panda.” But Mai disabused me of the notion: if your wheatflour noodles are square, they’ve been rolled out and cut, not bounced and stretched. The results, showcased best in his version of dan dan mien (literally, “peddler’s noodles”, $7.50), are sublime — the noodles substantial and pleasantly stretchy, making them fun to slurp and bite. Mai’s version of the dish is topped with a spicy mixture of ground pork with a subtle black-bean sauce funkiness and a “salad” of shredded snow peas, carrots, celery, and cabbage. It is both filling and refreshing, the veg a cool counterpoint to the spicy meat sauce. Regardless whether, as Mai asserts, his recipe is traditional, it makes a delicious and inexpensive lunch for one that could easily serve two in a pinch. rochestercitynewspaper.com City 11

Dispatches from the Jazz Blog [ REVIEW ] BY WILLE CLARK, FRANK DE BLASE, AND RON NETSKY
I’ve often wondered if Diana Krall was as cool as she comes off, or just bored. I’m here to say she’s cool, daddy-o. As Krall strolled out of the backstage darkness at Kodak Hall and over to the piano on Friday night, every Raymond Chandler description of a woman poured out of me like sweat. Not only is Krall breathtakingly beautiful, but that voice — it’s pure seduction and invitation. Krall tackled songs by artists like Nat “King” Cole and Tom Waits. I was told that the show was sold out, but there was nobody there except for Krall and myself as she sang and completely unglued me front and center. I bounded out of there in love like Pepe le Pew. Le sigh! (FD) Earlier Saturday evening I caught Tom Harrell’s Debussy & Ravel Project at Kilbourn Hall. Both Impressionist composers are favorites among jazz musicians due to their experimentation with unconventional harmonies, melodies, rhythms, and voicings. So when Harrell and his superb band played an hour and 20 minute set of (and in the spirit of ) the composers’ music, it just seemed like cerebral jazz.
Harrell, who suffers from schizophrenia, never made eye contact with the audience. He walked slowly with his head down, every movement deliberate. But when he picked up his trumpet or flugelhorn he came to life. And he got better as the set progressed, with the last three tunes (two of them by Harrell, one by Ravel) the best. His ensemble, enhanced by violin and cello, boasted some top players. Especially strong on solos were Wayne Escoffery on tenor sax and Charles Pillow on various woodwinds. (RN) Things got hot hot hot with Monophonics under the Big Tent Sunday night. The group blends psychedelic rock with funky, funky funk, and just enough soul to keep things hopping. The group was loud — very loud — but that was the way the musicians wanted it: the trumpet and saxophone player kept telling the sound guy to bring the instruments up. With soaring electric guitar solos, a tight horn section, and that lovely spin of the organ, Monophonics had the crowd up and dancing in no time. I can’t remember the last time I saw a dance pit at a Jazz Fest show, but Monophonics lit fire under people’s seats. (WC)

have to say my biggest influences are Sufjan Stevens and Elliott Smith. How has the Crane School helped you grow as a songwriter?
I took a little musical theory in high school, but it was only when I started at Crane that I began to understand how to utilize it as a way to approach the construction of songs. It geared me toward starting with the chord progression, and then laying the melody over that. But I am really self-conscious about my lyrics. Whose lyrics do you like?
Joanna Newsom’s lyrics are amazing. Or someone like Josh Netsky, who I’m actually going on a short tour with in July; his lyrics are like beautiful poems. I’ve seen you play solo a couple of times, but your upcoming show is with your band. How is the chemistry?

Harp condition Mikaela Davis Saturday, June 30 Skylark Lounge, 40 S. Union St. 9 P.M. | $8-$10 | 270-8106 purevolume.com/MikaelaDavis [ INTERVIEW ] BY DAVID YOCKEL JR.
If heaven has an orchestra of harp-strumming angels, someone should probably take a head count. Twenty-year-old Mikaela Davis began playing the harp in third grade. Since then she has studied with Grace Wong, the principal harpist of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, and she now attends the Crane School of Music at SUNY Potsdam. She has used that musical pedigree to conjure a sound that picks the indie-folk genre up from its roots and lets it loose into an ethereal jet stream. In addition to her studies and regular live performances, Davis has just put the finishing touches on her debut self-titled album with the help of Brian Moore at Redbooth Studios in Rochester. Moore says of Davis, “It is artists such as [Mikaela] that inspired me to open Redbooth. Not only does she have a beautiful voice, but she plays harp without skipping a beat. She makes the intricate balance of fluttering vocal folds and fingers on strings appear effortless…Simply magical.” 14 City june 27 - JULY 3, 2012
City recently had a chat with Davis to discuss her burgeoning musical career, as well as video games and vegetables. An edited transcript of the conversation follows. CITY: What inspired you to take up the harp? Mikaela Davis: They actually offered harp
lessons at my grammar school in Penfield, and from the first time I heard a note, I knew that it was the instrument for me. Also, I was extremely close with my grandmother, who had recently passed, and I could picture myself playing under the skylight in my living room, and her watching me practice. What are some of your musical influences?
My taste in music has definitely evolved as I’ve grown up. When I was in grammar school I listened to the Dixie Chicks and Britney Spears. In middle school I really got into Vanessa Carlton — you know, like, cheesy piano pop music. But it was also around that time that I started to write my own material. When I was in sixth grade, my dad moved to California and I wrote a song about how it made me feel. I think that’s when I learned that songwriting could be such a rewarding and therapeutic experience. I had an art teacher tell me once that some of my songs sounded like Fiona Apple, so I started listening to a lot of her stuff, as well as bands like The Beatles and The Kinks. I love Dinosaur Jr. and Beach House. But I would
It’s great. Alex Coté, who plays drums and adds some back-up vocals, has been my friend since childhood. Our new member, Cian McCarthy, who plays keyboard and guitar, has fit right in. Both are in the jazz performance program at SUNY Purchase, Alex for drums and Cian for saxophone. Having the guys behind me gives me a sense of security and I love the extra sounds. It is truly a collaborative enterprise. You have your album coming out soon. What was the recording experience like?
Absolutely fantastic. Brian Moore, the recording engineer at Redbooth Studios, made us feel right at home. I was really nervous about it at first, but the whole experience was so comfortable, very relaxed. We didn’t feel any pressure and we just trusted his judgment. I am so happy with the way it turned out. The release party will be at Lovin’ Cup on July 31. Stoney Lonesome and Josh Netsky will help us celebrate. What would you say is the weirdest thing about you?
When I was a younger, kids used to make fun of me because I absolutely love artichokes or Brussels sprouts; you know, anything that kids usually hate to eat. Also, I posted a video of me playing “Great Fairy Fountain” — theme music from “The Legend of Zelda” — on YouTube and have received a ridiculous amount of positive feedback. What are your future plans?
I would like to eventually get my masters degree, but ideally I would like to be able to support myself by touring. I’d like to see where the music takes me.

ALTERNATIVE | Anthony Green
While Anthony Green’s voice is immediately recognizable as the lead singer of Saosin and currently Circa Survive, his work as a solo artist only hints at the angst and vocal-cord wringing of those groups. To be fair, “Beautiful Things” takes its influences from seemingly everywhere. The record, released in January of this year, cascades through Green’s varied genres and emotions from start to finish. While the troubadour touch of longtime collaborators Good Old War permeates tracks like “Moon Song” or the a cappella gem “Do It Right,” guitarand vocal-driven tracks such as “Get Yours While You Can” remind fans of Green’s heavier, sweatier origins. Anthony Green performs Thursday, June 28, 7 p.m. at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N. Water St. $16-$18. waterstreetmusic.com. — BY JARED BENNETT

POP/ROCK | Get the Led Out
Bands may come and go, but reverence for Led Zeppelin hangs in there like white on rice. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers formed in the late 60’s and went on to influence everyone from the typical (Aerosmith, AC/DC, Van Halen) to the sublime (Dread Zeppelin, Lez Zeppelin, P. Diddy). Remember Diddy’s “Come With Me”? If you close your eyes, Philly septet Get The Led Out plays it legit and will transport you to Knebworth or Madison Square Garden or the 1971 concert at the Rochester War Memorial Auditorium.

HOUSE/DJ | Mark Farina
HEAVY ROCK | Melvins Lite
JAM ROCK | Dave Matthews Band
If you feel lost gazing in that sea of jazz that continues to crest over Rochester, fear not. While at first glance Mark Farina seems to be a House DJ, it readily becomes apparent that his output has a very definite jazzy streak to it, which should go well with the other musicians that will be all over the East End this weekend. But Farina’s tunes are also different enough to give you a break. Just listening to the tracks on the internet brought back memories of racing around San Andreas. If you like House Rhythm Radio, this is an easy yes. Paul Kuenzi and NickL will be starting the night with some ambient tracks, so it’ll be pretty chill by any standard.
To keep fans guessing — or on edge — The Melvins have just released “Freak Puke” under the moniker Melvins Lite, a three-piece version of the band. But don’t worry; it’s still the Pacific Northwest band’s gloriously heavy, sometimes sludgy dirge we’ve all come to expect and use liberally as an adjective. The current line-up includes Buzz Osborne, Dale Crover, and Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk). The band is trying to set the record for the world’s fastest tour in the Guinness Book Of World records by playing virtually every night from September 5 to October 25 Staring in Anchorage, Alaska, and ending in Honolulu, Hawaii.
A Dave Matthews Band concert is a summertime ritual. Each year, Matthews and band hit the road, winding their way across the United States, performing their radio-friendly jam rock to masses of fans, ranging from fraternity bros in cargo shorts to families bonding over a shared musical experience. Matthews hasn’t released any new material since 2009’s “Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King,” but he’s been playing new songs live in anticipation for an album to be released in the fall. Expect a set of crowd-pleasing, sing-along songs from his extensive back catalog mixed with some soon-to-be favorites. Brandi Carlisle opens the show.
Mark Farina performs Friday, June 29, 10 p.m. at Pearl Nightclub, 349 East Ave. $12, 21+. Check Facebook for details. — SUZAN PERO

@ROCCITYNEWS Midge Marshall is the only actor in the cast
Alex Black and Midge Marshall in “The Sand Box,” one of the Edward Albee one-acts currently on the stage at MuCCC. PHOTO BY ANNETTE DRAGON
The loneliest number An Evening of Albee By John W. Borek Presents Through June 30 MuCCC, 142 Atlantic Ave. Thu-Sat 7:30 p.m. | $10-$20 | 234-1254, muccc.org [ REVIEW ] BY ERIC REZSNYAK
Edward Albee might not be the most accessible playwright, but he’s found a kindred spirit in local director Michael Arve. In the past few years Arve has staged three of Albee’s most well-known works — “The Zoo Story,” “A Delicate Balance,” and “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” — and he and producing partner John Borek are committed to ongoing explorations of the American writer’s work at community performance space MuCCC. Currently on stage are three of Albee’s one-acts. Although very different, they show off some of Albee’s signature traits and give some insight into his life and struggles. Of the two one-acts, the first two — “The American Dream” and “The Sand Box” — are performed consecutively, using the same actors. The two pieces have similar themes and, according to Arve’s program notes, are informed heavily by Albee’s own upbringing as an adopted child in a severely dysfunctional upper-class family, his main source of emotional support
coming from his maternal grandmother. In “The American Dream,” a married couple waits impatiently for the arrival of a mystery guest — one whose identity and purpose they can’t remember. Meanwhile, the woman’s mother makes plans for a surprise of her own while intermittently squabbling with her daughter and bemoaning society’s treatment of the elderly. In “The Sand Box,” the same three characters (or very similar variations of them) are transported to the beach. Or maybe not. Both plays contain strong elements of absurdity and massive metaphors, as well as some breaking of the fourth wall. But don’t let that distract you from what Albee’s really saying. There are some powerful messages in both plays, and the pain, the loneliness, and the desperation he must have felt growing up in such an environment (from his perspective, at least) is practically palpable in the first. The third work, which follows intermission, is titled “Listening.” In it, three characters — The Man, The Woman, and The Girl — meet in a dilapidated garden and ask questions of, and make judgments about, one another. It’s an interesting, artistic play in which almost nothing is spelled out for the viewer, and careful attention must be paid if you hope to have any clue about what is going on. It is riveting in moments, but also undeniably self-indulgent on Albee’s part, relying heavily on some of his more grating habits as a writer (see: the constant repetition of the same lines).
to appear in all three plays, and she does an excellent job throughout. In the first two pieces she plays Grandma, wise, wily, and sweet but tough. She finds a perfect balance of sugar and vinegar, never overplaying the sass or the pathos so that either devolves into shtick. If her portrayal of the character is anything like Albee’s grandmother, it explains an awful lot about him as a writer. In the last play, her Woman is a totally different creature. She’s cunning, manipulative, resentful, and extremely sharp. Not quite opposite ends of the spectrum, but the fact that Marshall is so deeply rooted in both roles on the same night is truly impressive. Joining her in the first two plays is Kevin Sean Sweeney as Daddy. For a role that’s fairly limited — Daddy is an emotionally neutered, browbeaten shell of a man — Sweeney brings surprising range. He doesn’t waste a single line, although a lot of his acting in this role is in what he doesn’t say. He plays opposite Nancy Fancher as Mommy, a frigid, vapid, cruel woman with apparently zero redeeming qualities. Fancher has the entitled ice-queen act down, but her line delivery was consistently flat. I debated whether the bored-sounding affectation was an intentional part of the performance, but if so, it made it seem like Fancher was acting while everyone else on the stage was fully in character. Musician Cristina Dinella also performs as part of “The Sound Box,” while “The American Dream” also features the funny, natural Denise Bartalo as Mrs. Barker and Alex Black as The American Dream. Black also appears as Young Man in “The Sand Box,” in which he spends the entirety of the play doing calisthenics in nothing but his underpants. Let’s get this out of the way: Black is a stunning physical specimen. Tall, muscular, blonde hair, chiseled features — he’s practically Olympian. But the important thing is, he can act. His program bio states that he’s a relative newcomer to the stage, but he does a good job handling an emotionally charged monologue in “Dream” and he hints at some solid comedic instincts in both plays. In addition to Marshall, “Listening” features Jim Valone as The Man and Meredith Powell as The Girl. As alluded to earlier, “Listening” is an extremely challenging piece, both for the audience and the performers. Timing is crucial, and the play’s circuitous dialogue and labyrinthine logic (if it can even be called that) must have put all three talented local actors through their paces. The fact that the play works as well as it does can be attributed almost solely to the presence of the actors and the work Arve did with them.

COMEDY | Charlie Murphy’s Acid Trip Tour
It can’t be easy to come from a family where one sibling has made it big in the profession you too have chosen. But even though Eddie is the better known name of the Murphy clan, big brother Charlie holds his own as an actor, comedian, and writer and performer, perhaps best known for his work on Comedy Central’s beloved “Chappelle’s Show.” That’s where I first saw Charlie Murphy, and I still fondly remember his hilarious skit about the time that he and his friends played basketball with Prince and The Revolution at Paisley Park. Catch Charlie Murphy’s Acid Trip Tour stop in Rochester on Thursday, June 28, at the Auditorium Theatre (885 E. Main St.). Murphy will be accompanied with special guests Faizon Love and Freez Luv. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. (doors at 6:30) and tickets cost $49-$69, available by calling 800-745-3000 or by visiting ticketmaster.com.

KIDS | Space Travel at RMSC
It was only a matter of time before even space travel became democratized. Well, OK, it’s still not upon us, and it definitely won’t be accessible to everyone, but soon humans won’t need to be ordained astronauts to breach the atmosphere. Commercial spaceflight is in the works in a serious way due to entrepreneurs such as Richard Branson of The Virgin Group. A new family-friendly star show at Rochester Museum & Science Center’s Strasenburgh Planetarium (657 East Ave.) will explore the next generation of space travel. “Astronaut Mission: The Future” explores the topic through high-definition visualizations of the new generation of space vehicles from NASA, as well as private companies such as SpaceX and Virgin Galactic. The show will “help visitors imagine themselves flying in one of the new spaceships now under development or on the drawing board,” says Steve Fentress, director of Strasenburgh Planetarium, per a press release. “Astronaut Mission” considers asteroids, other planets, and their moons as possible targets of exploration, and touches on such popular topics as warp drive and faster-than-light travel. The show opens Monday, July 2, and will be shown throughout the summer. Admission is $7 for adults, $6 for seniors, college students, and kids ages 5-18, and free to RMSC members.

Besides, if zombies “Abraham Lincoln: can inhabit the placid rural landscape of Jane Vampire Hunter” Austen’s novels, surely a horde of vampires can (R), directed by Timur Bekmambetov ravage 19th-century America and mount a Now playing threat to the Union. Despite those admittedly tenuous Two of the most frequently filmed characters justifications, the concept of Honest Abe roaming in the history of cinema, Abraham Lincoln around decapitating vampires — his frequent and Count Dracula, probably deserve some practice throughout the movie — seems so common treatment, which might explain absolutely silly that it should make the immortal both the original novel and the blockbuster count revolve dizzily in his coffin (only in daylight, adaptation of “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire of course). As the expensive set pieces, the Hunter.” The Rail Splitter, after all, knew spectacular special effects, and the innumerable something about wooden stakes, those stunts demonstrate, however, the filmmakers sovereign remedies for vampirism, and his proceed entirely seriously through the viscous nonsense of their version of history. Perhaps they don’t realize the complete idiocy of their project. The film posits that the young Abraham vowed to avenge the death of his mother at the hands (or rather, teeth) of a vampire, a quest that drives him Benjamin Walker in “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.” PHOTO COURTESY 20TH CENTURY FOX

throughout his life. The grown Abe (Benjamin Walker) meets Henry Sturges (Dominic Cooper), an experienced vampire hunter who understands the young man’s obsession and tutors him in the history and practices of the breed and the art of hunting and killing them. Given a choice of weapons, Abe naturally decides on an axe, which Sturges coats with silver, the only metal that in this movie, at least, proves fatal to the undead. Once he masters his lessons, the young man sets out for Springfield, Illinois, to encounter his destiny. There, as every schoolchild knows, he meets and marries Mary Todd (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and debates Stephen Douglas. Before launching his political career, however, Lincoln stalks the monsters who pose as respectable citizens, slaughtering half a dozen with that lethal axe and burying their headless bodies in the surrounding prairie. The movie shows that Honest Abe was actually a serial killer: who knew? Pursuing its bizarre version of history, the picture skips rapidly through Lincoln’s ascent up the ladder of American politics all the way to the White House, where with the help of Sturges and childhood friend Will Johnson (Anthony Mackie), he continues his campaign against the hated monsters. The movie shows that the most important event of Lincoln’s presidency, the Civil War, actually coincided with his lifelong pursuit of the undead. The vampires, led by their chief, Adam (Rufus Sewell), control the South, enslaving black

people for nutritional purposes, as a supply of fresh blood; Adam even cuts a deal with Jefferson Davis to fight for the Confederacy against the Union, a perfect emblem of the conflict. At Gettysburg, the climactic battle of the Civil War, where the Confederate troops and the vampires prevail at first, the cause seems lost until Lincoln’s ingenuity and the efforts of his brave staff carry the day; even Mary Todd Lincoln, bless her heart, shows up at the battle, instructing the Union troops in the tried and true method of dispatching the hated creatures. Since a vampire killed her beloved son William, she bears a special sorrow and a resolve that matches her husband’s, and like him, she exacts her own revenge. Although it seems passing strange that a picture about the most revered president of the United States should rise to such flights of fancy and fraudulence, the notion that vampires took a hand in the bloodiest conflict in American history suggests at least a touch of ingenuity and perhaps even an explanation for slavery itself. It seems even stranger that, thanks to the magic of the cinema, Abraham Lincoln should fight with the graceful, acrobatic agility of a gymnast and twirl a large axe like a drum majorette at halftime. In our childhood we all learned that our 16th president was a good man, a brilliant thinker, a great president, but I’m sure no one suspected the true nature of his passions or his possession of such remarkable abilities. Again, who knew?
The filmography of Wes Anderson is not like a box of chocolates, because at this stage of the game you pretty much know what you’re gonna get: a tale of how parents don’t understand their children told through meticulously whimsical production design and a soundtrack teeming with often obscure 60’s pop. Anderson’s second film, 1998’s “Rushmore,” was his first big success, and it’s easily one of my five favorite movies ever. As the years have passed, though, Anderson has simply done variations on a theme. That it’s his own weirdly wondrous theme is definitely a saving grace, but what once seemed fresh and inspired has come to feel trite, derivative, and — please know that this hurts me more than it hurts Wes Anderson — dull. “Moonrise Kingdom” is Anderson’s latest, and though I’ve already essentially

outlined it, a few specifics probably won’t kill me. The year is 1965, and a bespectacled 12-year-old Khaki Scout named Sam (newcomer Jared Gilman) has bolted from a vaguely New England-y summer camp to rendezvous with the young lady who bewitched him in her raven costume during the local church’s reenactment of the Great Flood. Her heavy eye makeup evoking a younger Margot Tenenbaum, Suzy (Kara Hayward in her film debut) is fleeing an unsatisfying home life headed up by two miserable parents (consummate pros Frances McDormand and Bill Murray). We flash back to Sam and Suzy’s adorable courtship through exchanged correspondence, and we tag along as they run off together, batteryoperated record player and stolen library books in tow. The adults are, of course, concerned; besides Suzy’s mom and dad, the search party includes the perpetually underrated Bruce Willis as New Penzance’s lone, lonely cop and a delightful Edward Norton as Sam’s well-meaning but mildly incompetent scoutmaster. (The opening scene, an intricate, unbroken dioramarama in which the scoutmaster inspects the camp, is typically bravura Anderson.) Telling details about their emotional lives emerge as the smitten runaways set up housekeeping at a peaceful little inlet, while unexpected entanglements among the adults come to light, too. As usual, nobody’s happy, and the deadpan script, written by Anderson and Roman Coppola (they also collaborated on “The Darjeeling Limited”) and veering between twee and wise, allows its characters to work through their issues a bit too efficiently. With his thick glasses and calmly officious attitude, Gilman can’t help but bring to mind “Rushmore” hero Max Fischer. (Sam on the dangers of turtles: “They’ll bite you if you put your fingers in their mouths.”) Gilman and Heyward are the thumping heart of “Moonrise
Kingdom,” and both thankfully refrain from coming across as precocious despite trying to navigate grown-up situations. Otherwise, it’s the Anderson status quo: expressive music, carefully crafted sets, and Robert Yeoman’s vivid, matchless cinematography. So maybe it’s greedy, in the face of all those artistic riches, to wonder whether there’s anything else. Anderson has made seven films — some OK, some amazing — and they’ve all been more or less the same. My hope is that one day soon, he will surprise me again. Sometimes, when watching youngsters act,
it’s painfully obvious that they’re reciting lines written by some middle-aged guy. The other option might be to let the kids improvise, but that sounds as though it could test the patience of even the saintliest saint. So I’m not sure how Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda was able to coax such natural, lived-in performances from the largely pint-sized cast of the lovely and heartwarming “I Wish.” It no doubt helps that the two main characters are siblings in real life; Koki and Ohshiro Maeda play Koichi and Ryu, brothers evenly divided between estranged parents, at least one of them hoping for a reconciliation. The introspective Koichi’s plan is to wish for a volcanic eruption that will force him and his mother back to the home where the noisy and madcap Ryu still lives with their father. This hinges on the wish being made at a very specific time and place, and “I Wish” follows Koichi and Ryu separately in the days leading up to it. The film drags a bit when it’s just adults on screen, probably because Kore-eda — he also worked with a bunch of talented children in 2004’s wrenching “Nobody Knows” — traffics so effectively in the seemingly throwaway but beautifully crucial elements of being a kid, like cleaning your room, getting sidetracked by some dazzling flowers, and the quiet contemplation of life’s unfolding mysteries.

Craftsman Curb Appeal
394 Cedarwood Terrace Residents of the Culver-Winton-Main neighborhood are blessed with an urban community convenient to restaurants, shops, and open space. They enjoy a short downtown commute and an easy walk to Tryon Park, 80 undeveloped acres belonging to the Monroe County Parks system. While farmhouses once dotted this southeast quadrant of the city, most of the current houses in the neighborhood were constructed in the early 20th Century. The 1920 Craftsman style house at 394 Cedarwood Terrace was built during this period of growth. Located on a 40 by 135-foot lot on one of the neighborhood’s tree-lined streets, this city gem exudes curb appeal. Wide eaves that shade the second floor, decorative brackets, character-rich original windows, wood shingle siding, and an inviting porch give the house its unique appeal. Two sets of columns support the gabled roof of the red-trimmed expansive front porch, the exterior’s most charming feature. Hanging baskets of ferns and a trellised rose make this a serene spot to spend a summer afternoon. A red brick walk and steps lead you in. Inside, you notice the house’s impeccable details: gleaming hardwood floors, natural gumwood crown and floor moldings and archways. In the living room cabinets with leaded glass doors flank the brick fireplace, and a large bay window overlooks the front yard. Another bay window in the spacious dining room overlooks the partially fenced backyard. Beyond the swinging door, the updated eat-in kitchen has a convenient center
island, abundant cabinet storage space, and a pantry. A side entranceway and a foyer closet complete the first floor. Upstairs all three tastefully decorated bedrooms are spacious with hardwood floors and generous closet space. The bath is updated with subway tile and marble flooring but retains its original medicine cabinet. Another stairway off the upstairs hall leads to the finished third floor that provides additional space for a fourth bedroom, den, or home office. The full basement is home to the laundry and the house’s mechanics as well as a convenient half bath. In back, a detached garage has room for two cars. Modern shops and restaurants on Winton and Culver Roads surround this period house. Elementary schools of the Rochester City School District are within walking distance as is East High School. The Winton Branch Library and several houses of worship are nearby. Two community associations serve the neighborhood. Northeast Area Development provides services such as a neighborhood watch, and the North Winton Village Association works to improve the area’s quality of life. The 2,000 square foot house is listed at $109,900 with taxes of $3,194. For a tour, call Lanie Bittner of Nothnagle Realty at 329-0479. by Bonnie DeHollander Bonnie is a Landmark Society volunteer.

[ news of the weird ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD Chinese media reported that on May 4th, at the Xiaogan Middle School in Hubei province, high school students studying for the all-important national college entrance exam worked through the evening while hooked up to intravenous drips of amino acids to fight fatigue. A director of the school’s Office of Academic Affairs reasoned that before the IVs were hung, weary students complained of losing too much time running back and forth to the school’s infirmary for energy injections. After the media reports, there was a public backlash, but less against the notion that China was placing too much importance on the exams than against reports that the government was subsidizing the cost of the injections.
Can’t Possibly Be True
— Desmond Hatchett, 33, was summoned to court in Knoxville, Tenn., in May so that a judge could chastise him for again failing to make childsupport payments. Official records show that Hatchett has at least 30 children (ages 14 down to “toddler”) by at least 11 women. He said at a 2009 court appearance that he was “through” siring children and apparently has taken proper precautions since then. (In Milwaukee, Wis., in April, Sean Patrick was sentenced to 30 years in prison for owing more than $146,000 for 12 children by 10 mothers, and the city’s Journal Sentinel newspaper reported that, before being locked up, two convicted pimps, Derrick Avery and Todd Carter, had fathered, respectively, 15 kids by seven women and 16 children with “several” mothers.) — The Associated Press reported in May that Kentucky prison officials were working behind the scenes to
resolve the thorny question of whether inmate Robert Foley deserves a hip replacement. Normally, a prisoner in such extreme pain would qualify. However, Foley, 55, is on death row for killing six people in 1989 and 1991, and since he has exhausted his appeals, he is still alive only because a court has halted all executions while the state reconsiders its lethal-injection procedure. Furthermore, all local hospitals queried by the prison to perform the procedure have declined to take Foley because the prison considers him dangerous. — Chilean artist Sebastian Errazuriz recently created “Christian popsicles” made from wine that Errazuriz obtained by trickery after a priest consecrated it into “the blood of Christ.” The popsicle’s stick is actually a figure of Jesus on the cross, as sort of a reward for finishing the treat. (Also, The Icecreamists shop in London, England, recently began offering a popsicle made with absinthe -- and holy water from a spring in Lourdes, France, which many Catholics revere for its healing powers. The “Vice Lolly” sells for the equivalent of about $29.) — The official class photo of Eileen Diaz’s second-grade kids at Sawgrass Elementary School in Sunrise, Fla., was distributed this spring with the face of the front-and-center child replaced by a dark-on-white smiley face. Apparently there was miscommunication between the school and the photographer about redoing the photo without the child, whose parents had not given permission for the shot. (Another child without parental authorization was easily edited out of the photo, but the front-and-center student could not be.)
