Baby blues: Rochester’s young police force Rochester Police Chief Jim Sheppard calls rookies “young bloods” — and there are a lot of them. Fortyfour percent of Rochester’s police officers have less than five years on the job. Sheppard says it’s a natural cycle, given that officers can retire after 20 years. But police union President Mike Mazzeo says officers might stick around longer if there were more career-development opportunities. The consequences of a force full of less-experienced cops are significant. Generally, newer officers are wellsuited to the physical demands of the job, Sheppard says, but they lack maturity.
Neighborhood leader Eugenio Cotto says younger officers tend to have a more rigid, aggressive style that puts them in conflict with some residents. (This observation may be relevant to the case of activist Emily Good. Good was arrested in May while videotaping a young officer performing a traffic stop. The charge has been dismissed. The case has drawn national attention, with many people accusing the officer of acting overzealously. Police are investigating the incident.) Pictured: RPD rookie Jon Laureano.

urban journal | by mary anna towler
When a bill legalizing same-sex marriage went before the State Senate in 2009, word was that Rochester-area Senator Jim Alesi would provide a vote that could help assure its passage. Instead, as the roll call began in the Senate, Alesi, his head in his hands, voted “no.” On Friday night, the Republican-dominated Senate finally did the right thing and, with the governor’s quick signature, gave important civil rights to the state’s LGBT citizens. It was a historic vote, to put it mildly. It was a victory for the statewide LGBT coalition, for Democrats in the Assembly and Senate, and for Governor Andrew Cuomo, whose first-year leadership grows increasingly impressive. And it was an important victory — and an important step — for the Republican senators without whose vote the marriageequality bill would have failed: Stephen Saland of Poughkeepsie, Mark Grisanti of Buffalo, and Jim Alesi. In a time when politics has become fractious, partisan, and narrow minded, their courage (and I believe it was courage) offers a lesson in what the political process can — and should — be like. I was fascinated by an interview with Alesi earlier this month on YNN’s Capital Tonight. Alesi said that he had supported the right of same-sex couples to marry in 2009, but that the vote had come up “at the worst possible time,” right before an election. His vote then “was really a political vote,” he said. In 2011, he said, “I am now voting from my heart.” As grateful as I am for Alesi’s vote, I can’t help wondering: Did Alesi feel that this year, a “yes” vote wouldn’t jeopardize his seat, either with his constituents or his own party? Some of his fellow Republicans apparently still didn’t think they could put conscience ahead of politics. Near the end of the Capital Tonight interview, Alesi was asked if he thought there were enough Senate Republican votes to pass the equality bill. Alesi’s answer: “I think that if we did not have to worry about the politics of this, if we did not have to worry about getting re-elected — and this is the world we live in — if we were out in everyday normal life, you would probably see 12 or 14 more votes than you will see when the final vote is cast.” If 12 or 14 more senators supported equal rights for LGBT people but felt that they couldn’t vote for the bill politically, on what issues would they risk their seats? For Alesi, and for many of us, the right to marry is an issue of equality. For many Americans, of course, it’s not an
The vote was important, not just for New Yorkers in the LBGT community who want to get married, but for everyone.” issue of equality at all. It’s a religious issue — specifically, of the very word of God on the subject of homosexuality. And some (much?) of the anti-LGBT sentiment is also rooted in homophobia — and in discomfort not only with homosexual sex but with sex, period. But it’s clear that Americans’ opinions have been changing, slowly. Research has bolstered common sense, showing that attraction to people of the same sex is innate, not learned (or indoctrinated). And the passage of time itself is helping. Younger Americans are far less likely than older ones to be concerned about someone’s sexual orientation. This, too, will pass, in other words. Eventually. But the pain of discrimination and the deprivation of rights, the attacks, the suicides continue. We cannot wait until discrimination and homophobia age out. And so the New York vote on Friday night was important, not just for New Yorkers in the LBGT community who want to get married, but for everyone. “I think we are coming to a point where if we are going to live in a country that is based on freedom and equality, that freedom and equality have to exist for everyone,” Alesi said in the YNN interview. “It’s just a matter of equality,” Alesi said. “It’s America. You can’t see it as anything other than that.” I hope he takes that message to the leaders of his party in Washington.

Wait for inquiry before protesting videotape issue
I sincerely thank all the people who have corresponded with me on the Emily Good - police recording controversy over the last few days. However, to those of you calling me to the front line: I will not be attending any rallies, protests, or action committees in the foreseeable future. Within 12 hours of the video being posted on IndyMedia, Police Chief Jim Sheppard released a statement and launched an internal investigation. Given our government’s reputation for lethargy, this is a massive victory for efficiency, if not for civil rights. I believe that at this early stage any organized protesting or “taking to the streets” would be an unwarranted act of aggression. If you are unconvinced, please consider: We are winning. An internal investigation is exactly how this should proceed. I’d be a great deal more concerned if we had a chief of police who was ready to fire someone moments after watching some video on the Internet. And yes, it is just that. It’s some video on the Internet. It is out of context, and it is a single device’s account of an event. Its users had a clear bias. It warrants an investigation, not immediate action. I advise concerned citizens (and don’t get me wrong; you should be concerned) to join me in what I postulate to be the most appropriate response: Write a letter to Jim Sheppard or Mayor Tom Richards. Let them know you’re upset. Convey your views and reactions clearly and rationally. Ask questions, request results. Right now, communication is our strongest tool. Aggression will get you nowhere. Wait to rally until a decision is made. Don’t throw any bricks unless there’s an absolute injustice.
I empathize with those of you who are furious, those of you who are searching for a place to direct your energy. I have done a great deal of useless protesting in my life. But I am done with it. I challenge you to forsake the mob that is Rage and join me on the side of Efficiency, for that is how we will accomplish change. It is okay to be angry. Do something about it. Here are phone numbers and addresses for the two people you should be voicing your concerns to, as listed on cityofrochester.gov: Police Chief James Sheppard, email@example.com, 428-7033; Mayor Thomas Richards, info@ cityofrochester.gov, 428-7045. SPENCER CHRISTIANO, ROCHESTER
Want vision? Frankel has it
In her June 15 article, Mary Anna Towler doubted the creativity and vision in today’s candidates. She has not looked carefully at Sandra Frankel, who is running for County Executive. Sandy brings integrity, leadership, and vision to a county that has been mismanaged and as a result suffers from economic stagnation resulting in public cynicism. As Brighton Town Supervisor, Sandy was able to translate ideas into action. She rolled back her salary, closed the deficit, created a town-wide park system, enlarged the library, instituted an aggressive infrastructure maintenance program, supported environmental policies, and was instrumental with help for new housing and commercial projects. She will do the same for Monroe County. Sandy is a candidate of action. She speaks about the culture of corruption that is rampant in Monroe County, but her words lead to policy. She is the only chance we have of restoring a sense of trust and hope to county government. Sandy intends to institute an Office of Integrity to investigate and oversee problems of honesty in government, which will establish a long-lost sense of trust. In addition, she will hire the best qualified people regardless of their political affiliation. Sandy believes in participatory government and will establish a business roundtable to help plot a strategy for future economic success. She will be honest. Maggie Brooks has raised taxes seven times in seven years but claims she has not. Individuals have paid more taxes every year of the current Republican administration.
In Monroe County, we have the talent and the drive to bring our region back if we have a visionary leader like Sandy Frankel who has a plan as well as a commitment to work openly with others rather than in secret with a cadre of friends. If you get to know Sandy and the policies she advocates, it is clear that change is possible in Monroe County. BARBARA LOVENHEIM, ROCHESTER
Mary Anna Towler’s response: Your letter seems to help me make my case. Instituting competent, trustworthy, ethical government isn’t visionary; it’s the least we can expect from public servants. And as I noted in my column, the challenges facing local governments right now are so enormous that even the most ethical, professional government is hard-pressed to do much more than keep its head above water.

On Rochester teachers’ new contract: Seven percent pay hike over
two years? It must be nice. The private sector will never see that kind of pay increase.... but hey, they don’t have unions and the liberal agenda backing them. DANIEL
That liberal agenda....riiiiight. That liberal agenda got you the five-day work week, eight-hour days, ending the exploitation of children, social security, unemployment insurance, etc. Private sector corporations wouldn’t survive without exploiting their workers, so instead of having to account for their behavior, they pit their workers against public workers. Because there’s no way people who have to have six years of higher education for their job shouldn’t be paid a decent wage. A decent wage, which by the way, the liberal agenda wants for everyone. Oh, and there’s no money to pay them, but there’s money to give tax breaks to every developer who comes along waving campaign contributions to build houses our new mayor says we don’t even need. And there’s money to send me countless 79cent postcards to tell me about the ribbon cutting at new restaurants. DAVE ATIAS

Sabres and Amerks, together again
Buffalo Sabres owner Terry Pegula bought the Rochester Americans. The move restored the Amerks status as the Sabres farm team, an arrangement that was prized by Buffalo and Rochester hockey fans. Prior to 2008, when the two teams parted, the Amerks had a 29-year relationship with the Sabres.
Schools project dodges a bullet
The showdown over the $1 billion schools modernization project was resolved at the 11th hour, and work on the first phase of the project should continue as planned. A dispute over competing bills in the State Legislature was reportedly resolved by the State Education Department.
Vote on teachers contract postponed
Members of the Rochester Teachers Association approved a new contract with the city school district that would increase teachers’ salaries by 3.53 percent in 20112012. Out of the district’s 3,500 teachers, about 91 percent voted in favor of the agreement, said RTA President Adam Urbanski. Concessions in the agreement could help to restore about 100 of the 400 teachers who have received layoff notices. The contract needs to be approved by the city school board, but a scheduled vote on it Monday evening was postponed. RTA members have been without a contract for more than a year.
Rochester is hiring
The Rochester metro is number one in state job growth. According to the State Labor Department, Rochester added 11,600 private-sector jobs for the 12-month period ending in May 2011. The last time the area saw this level of job growth was in the mid 1990’s. Despite the growth in the private sector, however, government jobs are still being cut.

Finally: Marriage equality in NYS It is destined to be one of those “Where were you when…?” moments. With a one-vote cushion, the New York State Senate approved same-sex marriage last week, 33 to 29. Thirty-two votes were needed to pass the measure. (The Assembly had already approved a bill by the time the Senate voted.) The vote came late Friday night following more than a week of agonizing starts and stops, rising hopes followed by crushing disappointment. It wasn’t clear until the last minute whether the GOP, which has the majority in the Senate, would even bring the bill to the floor for a vote.
Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the bill shortly after the vote, officially making New York the sixth, and largest, state in the nation to allow gay couples to wed. Cuomo said that by approving the bill, New York had lived up to its reputation as a bellwether for progressive issues. The Rochester community celebrated the historic moment with a gathering in Washington Square Park on Saturday afternoon. Local activists Bess Watts and Anne Tischer were married in the park several years ago “in an act of civil disobedience,” Watts said Saturday. The couple legally wed in Canada and now plan to renew their vows in New York State, she said.
“We’re going to have the reception we never had,” Tischer said. Rochester City Clerk Dan Karin said he’s waiting for guidance from the State Department of Health on how to implement the new law, which goes into effect on Sunday, July 24. Once a couple fills out required paperwork, he says, they have to wait 24 hours to get married. The license expires in 60 says. Karin said that as of Monday afternoon, he had received two phone calls and one e-mail inquiring about the process.

Lovely Warren’s re-election bid is worth noting because she’s been talked about as a possible choice for deputy mayor. Warren could always run for re-election and then step down if given the appointment, but it’s difficult to believe that Mayor Tom Richards would wait that long to appoint a deputy.

City Council races shaping up
For a minute there it looked like the City Council races were going to be tedious compared to the races for school board this year. But things are picking up. Seeking re-election are district Council people Carla Palumbo (northwest), Adam McFadden (south), Elaine Spaull (east), and Lovely Warren (northeast). Warren’s bid is worth noting because she’s been talked about as a possible choice for deputy mayor. Warren could always run for re-election and then step down if given the appointment, but it’s difficult to believe that Mayor Tom Richards would wait until November to appoint someone to the number-two slot. Here’s what is known so far: Diane Watkins, a teacher in the city school district, is petitioning to primary McFadden. McFadden has traditionally played the “agitator” role on Council, but some wonder if he’s losing his edge. Critics still fume over McFadden’s decision to support Richards and the special election for mayor. Also known: James Muscarella, long-time president of the Dutchtown Neighborhood Association, intends to primary Palumbo for the northwest district seat. Less certain is a possible primary challenge to Palumbo from Tom Brennan.
Emily Good is a free woman. The Rochester resident was arrested in May while videotaping police conducting a traffic stop. The video recently went viral, bringing national attention to Good’s case and significant outcry against the Rochester Police Department. Good’s supporters said the police officer who arrested Good acted overzealously. | The District’s Attorney’s Office dropped the single misdemeanor charge against Good earlier this week, citing a lack of evidence. | Good’s arrest touched on an ongoing national debate over citizens’ rights to record police. | “We want to make clear that it is not the policy or practice of the Rochester Police Department to prevent citizens from observing its activities — including photographing or videotaping — as long as it does not interfere with the safe conduct of those activities,” said a statement issued by Mayor Tom Richards, City Council President Lovely Warren, and Police Chief James Sheppard. | The police department is continuing two internal reviews, one related to the original incident and another relating to officers ticketing cars outside of a meeting of Good’s supporters. | The traffic stop in question began when officers pulled over a car with a group of people known to the police department, Sheppard said, and police had information that weapons could have been in the car.

(Brennan could not be reached for comment.) Brennan is a former Rochester school board member and ran an unsuccessful bid for City Council in 2009. And frequent candidate Harry Davis says he’s petitioning to force an east district primary against Spaull. Looking ahead to the general election: former mayoral candidate Alex White says he will seek the Green Party’s designation for McFadden’s Council seat (south district), and Republicans Andreas Rau and Rich Tyson are running in the northwest and east districts. They’ll take on whoever wins the primaries for those seats, currently held by Palumbo and Spaull, respectively.

JUSTICE | BY JEREMY MOULE
Building a good defense Two young attorneys will serve three-year fellowships in the Monroe County Public Defender’s Office: part of a new national program focused on training newer attorneys in public interest law. Katherine Higgins, a Cornell Law School graduate, and Felipe Alexandre, a graduate of the Indiana University School of Law, will start in the defender’s office in August. They’re part of the Public Defender Corps, a new program developed by Equal Justice Works and the Southern Public Defender Training Center. That Higgins and Alexandre were chosen for the program speaks to their talents and dedication to providing legal services for the poor. That the county Public Defender’s Office was selected as a host speaks to the office’s reputation. “We’re really just hoping that the next wave and next army of public interest lawyers and public defenders can really get their feet wet, really make a difference in the communities they’re helping, and serve as assets in the public defender offices that they’re in,” says Becky Brand, an Equal Justice Works spokesperson. The program and the fellowships also touch on deeper issues. Public defender offices across the country are underfunded and their attorneys carry excessive caseloads. And few public defender training opportunities exist — a problem partly attributed to funding. Funding and caseloads are wellknown issues, while public defender training has received less attention. In 2006, however, a state indigent defense commission report explicitly identified lack of training as a problem. The report relied on testimony, research, and previous reports. “We learned that very few institutional providers have in place viable training programs, and that access to training is inconsistent across the state,” the report says. The state Defenders Association offers training programs, but overworked public defenders are often not able to participate, it says. Monroe Public Defender Tim Donaher
offered his office as a fellowship host the first time he heard about the program. The mentoring, in particular, got his attention. “I can name 15 to 20 attorneys off the top of my head in this office who would be perfect mentors to teach these young men and women,” Donaher says. Higgins and Alexandre will handle and try cases in the town court bureau. City
JUNE 29 - JULY 5, 2011
Donaher says that will enable him to move an experienced attorney out of that bureau and into city courts, which will help reduce caseloads there, too. Newer attorneys start in the town court bureau and work their way up through other bureaus, which handle cases in higher courts. The office’s more experienced attorneys mentor lessexperienced defenders, and attorneys in the town or city bureaus occasionally help other attorneys with felony cases. The 60 attorneys in the Monroe County Public Defender’s Office handled more than 29,000 cases in 2010. Higgins and Alexandre have a deep
interest in helping low-income people who need legal services. Alexandre says he wasn’t initially going to pursue criminal defense or public interest law in school. As an undergraduate he earned a degree in Asian studies and wanted to be a business lawyer. He speaks Chinese and wanted to use that skill in his work. He landed an internship in China, but says he soon realized that the work lacked something. He’d previously worked as a court interpreter and, during that time, realized that he liked the idea of going up against the system for people. He had also come to the conclusion that some, though not all, criminal defendants are “good people who made bad choices,” he says. Alexandre has completed internships working in employment law for a legal aid group in Boston, immigration law in New York City, and in a public defender’s office when he was in law school. “I wanted to do work that was more meaningful to me,” he says. Higgins says that a criminal conviction or incarceration can change a person’s life and that’s what drives her interest in working as a public defender. The consequences of a conviction can last a lifetime, she says, and may lead to

Program organizers and participants expect
broader benefits beyond caseload relief. They say they hope the fellows spread out through public defender offices across the country and share what they’ve learned to improve the quality of public defense and public interest law. Nationwide, there are 18 fellowships happening in roughly one-dozen offices, and that number could grow in future years of the program. When the fellowship ends, the attorneys can stay in the office in which they’ve served if jobs are available, or they could spread out. They could go to offices in large cities, or they could go to work in underserved rural areas. Donaher offers one possibility: post-Hurricane Katrina
New Orleans is in desperate need of qualified public defenders, he says. By putting highly qualified public defenders out into the world, Monroe County will have done a small part, Donaher says, to improve the representation of the indigent in other areas of the country. Another benefit of the program is to combat the stereotype that public defenders are lawyers who couldn’t get a better job. The classic scenario is the defendant who says, “I want a real lawyer.” These fellowships show that public defenders do the work because they are passionate about it: that it’s what they want to do, Donaher says. That the program aims to pull in the best and brightest young attorneys interested in public interest law will help. “My dream is to just walk into the courtroom and the prosecutor just knows that my presence there means something,” Alexandre says. “He knows that I’m not there to play around. I’m not there to negotiate so I can close a file. He knows I’m going to fight it to the end.”
difficulty getting housing or a job. She’s worked with people experiencing those problems via her fellowship at a legal aid group in Ithaca. “Without having passionate, competent, trained attorneys to help them, they’re just going to be run over by the justice system and the government,” she says. Higgins went to law school planning to do public interest work, and has interned at the criminal division of the Legal Aid Society in Manhattan. She’s currently completing a fellowship with a legal aid organization in Ithaca, and she’s taught constitutional law to inmates at the Auburn Correctional Facility.

BABY blues Nail clipper, toothbrush, aspirin: this guy’s a walking medicine cabinet. Rochester Police rookie Jon Laureano, who’s searching the man, lets the stuff spill out onto the ground. But the guy seems to have an inexhaustible supply of pockets and hidden compartments, so the search takes awhile. “I ain’t gonna steal no car,” the man says. “I ain’t got time.” But that’s not why the cops are there. Laureano and his field training officer, Matt Klein, were called to this corner on South Avenue for reports of a man trying to sell drugs. “You can’t be down here serving people up,” Klein says. “People are going to call. There are a lot of good people down here.” They don’t find drugs, but they do find something that Klein says he suspects is “burn” — essentially imitation crack — in an aspirin bottle. “Whatever you’re doing with your aspirin — look at me. Look at me in the eyes — you’re not going to do it down here no more,” Klein says to the man. Laureano cuts a lean, energetic figure in his blues, but he lacks the command presence that flows naturally from Klein. That will come with experience, Klein says. “When you’re new, you’re going from point A to point B, and you’re just happy to get to point B,” Klein says. Rochester Police Chief Jim Sheppard calls rookies “young bloods” — and there are a lot of them. Forty-four percent of Rochester’s police officers have less than five years on the job. Sheppard says it’s a natural cycle, given that officers can retire after 20 years. But police union President Mike Mazzeo says officers might stick around longer if there were more career-development opportunities or places for officers to go once they’ve “burned out” on the streets. He points to the elimination of support positions, the reorganization of the RPD to a two-section 10 City JUNE 29 - JULY 5, 2011

There are cultural consequences, too, to The consequences of a force full of lesshaving a less-experienced force. A young, experienced cops are significant.

But it had a bad day.’ You don’t feel challenged does take some adjustment from residents
who are used to parking their cars on their lawns or playing basketball on the street and not being called to task on it. “The newer officers will follow their procedures to a ‘T,’ when more seasoned officers may look at it from a different point of view,” says Cotto, who is executive director of the Group 14621 Community Association. “It’s a different culture. It’s a totally different culture.” Expect the RPD to keep getting younger, too, at least for awhile. To help close its budget gap, City Hall is offering a one-time, $15,000 retirement incentive to certain senior employees this year. Sheppard says he won’t know until September how many officers will take the incentive, but approximately 64 are eligible. City Hall is also eliminating funding for police overhire, where the RPD hires more officers than necessary in order to prepare for future openings. “You can have more cops than you need so as people retire, you’re actually staying at the staffing level that you’re supposed to,” Sheppard says. About 20 to 25 people leave the RPD every year, he says, so without overhire, there will be more vacancies. “You’ll always be catching up,” Sheppard says. “It means younger officers and fewer officers.” RPD recruits spend six months at the police
academy, do their field training, and then go back to the academy for two weeks. New York State requires that recruits receive 15 weeks of training, but the RPD has historically exceeded that, training recruits for 24 weeks. In field training, a recruit is matched with different veteran officers for varying
lengths of time. The variety is important, Chief Sheppard says, so new officers observe different policing styles. Recruits return to their primary field training officer for the last two weeks of training. “Each phase you’re doing a little bit more,” Sheppard says. “When you come back, your primary FTO is in plain clothes, and it’s on you to do the work. He’s almost invisible.” Field training is an extremely important duty, says John Klofas, criminal justice professor at the Rochester Institute of Technology. “Historically, they really augment the academy training,” he says. “People learn one set of experiences and skills in the academy, and then to go out and practice those is a very different experience for them.” Rookie Laureano agrees. The main difference between the academy and field training is that everything happens much faster on the streets, he says. “There’s no room for error,” he says. “At the academy, if I make a mistake, it gets written on a form somewhere. In reality, if I make a mistake, it could cost a fellow officer dearly.” Field training came under scrutiny in a 2004 report compiled for then-Mayor Bill Johnson by a commission headed by the Rev. Lawrence Hargrave and former Family Court judge Michael J. Miller, with help from the Center for Governmental Research. The report criticized the relatively short amount of time required for an officer to become a field training officer – three years – saying it creates a “young training the young” situation. Field training officers have to be highly recommended by supervisors familiar with their work, and they have to undergo 40 hours of state-mandated training. They also have to be in good standing with the department. “It means that there’s no discernible pattern of disciplinary problems or moral ineptitude,” says Officer Stephen Scott, the RPD’s spokesperson. The RPD has 118 field training officers, he says, and they range in experience from three years to more than 20 years on the force. FTO Klein and Klofas say that time matters less than character. Some officers will be ready to train after three years, they say, and others will never be ready. “Time is significant, but there are other characteristics that are significant, also,” Klofas says. “How does the person carry himself? How does he handle himself? You don’t want the wrong people doing this, clearly.” Just as important as field training, Klofas says, is having shifts and assignments that encourage frequent interaction between rookies and more experienced officers. The new officers benefit from the guidance, he says, and from observing the vets at work. “The thing that people have to be concerned with is making sure that there are senior people around to help guide new people,” Klofas says. “Generational differences are significant in policing, probably more important than most other occupations:
how do you relate to people on the street? Police have powers that average citizens don’t have around the use of force, so how do you judiciously use those powers? How do you interact with people in the neighborhoods to strengthen those neighborhoods instead of causing additional strain?” “The nature (above) Third-platoon of policeroll call at Patrol Divisio n West of the RPD on Jay Street. community (right) Rochester Police Officer Matt Klein say relations is very, s he enjoys his interaction with new officers.

(This The new officers need that neighborhood base, Mazzeo says, to effectively move up into should be less of an issue going forward, he says, due to budget cuts.

He uses the with a young criminal. As you age, the technician’s unit, which collects evidence at individuals you’re dealing with stay crime scenes, as an example. the same age, but you’re getting older.
“Does that person need to have a gun? No. The crime’s done. So we’ve civilianized those jobs,” Sheppard says. “It makes sense from a moneymanagement point of view to have cops where you need cops, which is out there fighting crime. And then in those support positions where you don’t necessarily need a cop, to have a civilian.” Sheppard says he understands Mazzeo’s point about burnout, but that it clearly doesn’t affect everyone since there are long-time officers still out on the streets. “If you really love your job, you love your job,” Sheppard says. “I don’t think you make positions to satisfy that need, or [for] people not wanting to work where they’re working.” The fact that the RPD is a young force isn’t
going unnoticed in the neighborhoods. Cotto, from Group 14621, says he’s heard concerns from residents, leaders of block clubs, and others about how the young officers conduct themselves. “It’s how you perceive it,” Cotto says. “They’re aggressive, yeah, and they want to do a good job. It’s just a question of the folks getting accustomed to having young officers out there: to get the message to the people, ‘This is how the police department is doing business.’ And we all have to try to work with residents so that when we do have the newer officers, people understand that they’re going to come in with this hunger to help and do their job.” The RPD is aware of the cultural divide, Cotto says, and has stepped up community outreach under Sheppard. Officers have been showing up at business association and block club meetings, and elsewhere. “I think that’s a very good move, to get their faces out there, and it’s been one of the things the chief has talked to us about,” Cotto says. “That definitely is something that works.” Sheppard says you can train younger officers to keep their cool in stressful situations, but once they’re out on the streets, the adrenaline tends to take over. Self-control usually improves with age and experience, he says. “I get complaints from constituents: ‘These young guys, they’re different.’ They are different,” Sheppard says. continues on page 12 rochestercitynewspaper.com City 11

More experienced officers tend to have a command presence that rookies generally lack, says RIT’s Klofas. And it takes new people a while, he says, to really hone their observation and human-relations skills. One person who has nothing but praise for the current RPD is Kyle Crandall, president of the Beechwood Neighborhood Coalition. Response times have improved greatly over the last five years, he says. Response times in the past were “completely unacceptable,” he says, “but that trend has completely turned.” “I have not seen a lack of performance from the RPD due to the fact they have a young force. I’ve seen just the opposite,” Crandall says. “To me, I would rather have a young police force who has been trained, who know their job, who are out there doing the best they can even if they have less experience, as long as they are getting to the scene quicker. I have a much better feeling about the RPD.” If response times are slow, people don’t feel safe, Crandall says. And if people don’t feel safe, he says, they’ll move. Crandall’s observation about response times probably has more to do with increased staffing, however, than the age of the force. The RPD grew under former Mayor Bob Duffy and former Chief Moore. Back in early May, RPD rookie Jon Laureano
was in his third phase of field training, the last before he returned to his primary FTO for the final stage. Law enforcement is encoded in Laureano’s genes: his father was a police officer and his mother is a corrections officer. His father was a little put off by his son’s career choice, Laureano says, but he’s come around. “He didn’t want me to see some of the things he’s seen,” he says. “But now, he’s proud. It kind of worked out.” Klein and Laureano have a busy Friday evening. In just a few hours, they respond to two car accidents, reports of a knife fight, a brewing girl-brawl on East Main Street, and several other calls. Laureano makes a couple of mistakes: missing an unlocked door on a home with the burglar alarm going off, and not ordering the passenger at a traffic stop to roll down his tinted window. Still, nothing seems to dent his enthusiasm. “Every day I work, I get a little more comfortable,” he says. “It gets just a little easier.” When they have no calls for service to answer, they can choose to play back-up on other calls. Reports come over the radio or on the computer, and Klein looks over at Laureano to see what he wants to do. “Well?” he says. “I want to go,” Laureano says, every time. “Let’s go.”

FROM OUR BLOGS The State Legislature has approved a new law governing where power plants can be located. It will also streamline the permitting process. The old law helped expedite plant siting and permitting which, in turn, saved the power companies and the state money and resources. Title X takes the same approach, but with some differences. The old law predated New York’s
wind-farm boom and consequently didn’t cover those facilities. Title X does, as long as they have a generation capacity exceeding 25 megawatts. That would exclude some small power plants or small wind towers at homes and businesses. But the threshold is low enough that it would cover some smaller wind farms and possibly solar power projects. — JEREMY MOULE
Dining pastry, allowing the meaty mixture within to steam in a fragrant bath of cinnamon, garlic, and perhaps a bit of cumin, along with tomato and onion ($5.95). For me, however, there is really only one appetizer at Sinbad’s, a cross between a salad and vegetable stew called balila ($5.75). A simple combination of chickpeas, fava beans, scallions, garlic, cumin, and tomato in a lemon-and-olive-oil dressing, balila is served warm rather than cold (I’ve noticed in the winter that it is actually served hot) — a strange move for something that appears to be a salad, but an inspired one. Heating the dressing softens the beans a bit, and releases all sorts of delicious aromas making the dish simultaneously comforting and invigorating, comfort food at its very best. Almost everything that can be served in

Think outside the pita Sinbad’s Mediterranean Cuisine 719 Park Ave. 473-5655, mysinbads.com Daily 11 a.m.-10 p.m. [ REVIEW ] BY JAMES LEACH
Ziad and Imad Naoum, co-owners of Sinbad’s Mediterranean Cuisine on Park Avenue, want you to make a mess. They don’t say it in so many words, but their menu tempts you to abandon knife, fork, and a bit of decorum and dig in with your hands and a chunk of pita. Diners at this 18-year-old Park Avenue institution can get the usual Greek restaurant fare — gyros, falafel, hummus, and tabouleh. But they can also find dishes, particularly appetizers and salads, that are less familiar staples of the Lebanese cuisine that the Naoums grew up with: kebbe, balila, maza, and farrouj (the last item is a golden-brown, herbflecked roasted hen that puts the carnal back in carnivore). Summer was made for food like this, for dishes that hover on the edge between healthy
and louche. And the patio at Sinbad’s is one of the best places to satisfy your Greek jones and enjoy some of the best people-watching in town at the same time. Sinbad’s makes a great gyro, the juicy
and fragrant meat — a mixture of finely ground lamb and beef with garlic and herbs — sliced thick and wrapped in a fresh, hot pita with tahini, tomato, and onions ($5.95). Served wrapped in a twist of waxed paper, it’s a perfect sandwich for a quick lunch or a picnic in the park, especially if you add a salad or appetizer to the mix. My only complaint is that Naoum’s gyros tend to be less abundant than the ones served at Greek diners and restaurants closer to New York City. They are still messy and delicious, but I always find myself wanting more. This is easily remedied if you know to ask for a double portion of meat. Of course, even if you don’t order double meat, you can order a gyro plate and get not only all the meat you will ever want, but also salad greens, garlicky sauteed mushrooms, feta cheese, and a side of a creamy garlic and herb dressing that would be good spread on anything and everything ($10.25).
But if you really want to get a sense of the breadth and depth of Lebanese cuisine, you should (reluctantly) skip the familiar and explore the other offerings on Sinbad’s menu. Start with a bowl of rich, brown lentil soup, redolent of garlic and lemon and full of escarole and chunks of potato ($3.50). Or, if your taste runs toward cold soups, a bowl of cacik, a mixture of yogurt, cucumber, and mint reminiscent of tzatziki might fit the bill ($3.50). Nice as a soup, it’s even better as a dip for chunks of pita or a falafel ball. You could default to the familiar hummus. The Naoums make a particularly velvety version with lots of garlic and lemon, and a nice finishing splash of fruity olive oil ($5.50). Or you could opt for baked pita stuffed with feta and scallions (maza, $5.50), or kebbe, ground beef and bulgar (cracked wheat or buckwheat) mixed with pine nuts, tomatoes, and onions served with pita wedges in lieu of a spoon ($6.75). If you’d rather use a knife and fork, and you don’t mind potentially getting tasty grease all over your shirt, consider ordering sfiha. Sfiha (also known as lamajun) are usually open-faced combinations of pita, ground beef or lamb, and feta akin to pizza. Zaid Naoum folds his into a triangular
a pita — gyros, falafel, shish kebob, and grilled chicken — can also be served as an entrée, and most of these come with a side salad of your choice. You could opt for the familiar Greek salad topped with feta cheese and olives, or the house salad, but that lacks imagination. Instead, consider Sinbad’s excellent tabouleh, long on parsley and short on bulgar (as Zaid Naoum assures me it should be) with a bright lemony dressing to pull it all together ($6.50). There’s also malfouf, a sort of Lebanese coleslaw of shredded cabbage and tomato dressed with a Greek dressing in which oregano plays a starring role alongside a healthy dose of garlic ($5.95). Malfouf, I’ve found, makes a stellar companion for grilled and roasted dishes, providing crunch and an herbal blast to seared meat. The one dish you should not miss, though, is Zaid Naoum’s roasted cornish hen, farrouj ($12.50). There’s something eminently satisfying about attacking a roasted chicken with your bare hands, and here there’s no other way to do it. Marinated in olive oil, herbs, and a whole lot of tasty garlic, and roasted until the skin is a gorgeous golden brown, Sinbad’s farrouj is a poultry masterpiece — a pleasure to dismember and an invitation to wrestle with your dinner. Sprinkled inside and out with a mixture of fresh herbs, and so juicy that the flesh weeps at the slightest touch, this is not a neat dish to eat, and you’ll be very grateful that it is served atop a pita slathered with that wonderful garlic dressing. Meat juices, herbs, and garlic make an intoxicating combination that makes the last bite just as good, if not better, than the first. Although it might seem like excess, one hen a person is probably the right quantity to order, and even then you may find yourself casting greedy glances at your companions’ untended drumsticks. rochestercitynewspaper.com City 13

Grace Potter and The Nocturnals performed Friday, June 24, at Water Street Music Hall. PHOTO PROVIDED
Grace jones [ REVIEW ] BY DAVID YOCKEL JR.
Grace Potter was barely old enough
to order a drink when she first began blowing away crowded bars with her bluesy vocals. Since her debut album in 2004, the Vermont native continued to grow as both a singer and songwriter. She brought her wide range of talents and her band, The Nocturnals, to Water Street Music Hall on Friday night as they tour in support of their acclaimed, self-titled album. Fellow Vermonters Chamberlin opened the show. This five-piece outfit played a smooth set, including some polished versions of tracks off the band’s debut disc, “Bitter Blood.” And in just about a year, Chamberlin has put together some well-thought-out, well-executed, genre-defying anthems. It is a unique blend of true rock-androll energy with a funky folk sensibility. The resulting sound is extremely modern, placing the band in the same category as Fleet Foxes and Bon Iver. But the teeming room was definitely there to see Potter, and she and The
Nocturnals did not disappoint. From her first moment on stage, an energetic Potter commanded the audience with her seductive sonic style. I immediately thought of a young Stevie Nicks or the Heart sisters as Potter and her super-tight band ran through a catalog sprinkled with everything from R&B, folk, soul, country, jazz, and blues, to funk, reggae, and even hard rock with moments of ethereal, improvisational jams. The band opened the show with “Medicine,” a rollicking tune from its most recent release. As Potter sang, “She got the medicine that everybody wants…,” the crowd wholeheartedly agreed. She was completely entrancing. Her unbelievable vocal range, her harmonious work on her Hammond B-3, and her respectable chops on an axe perfectly mixed with a truly spotless group of backing musicians. Potter was playful with the audience and extremely interactive. At continues on page 19

Music that day on, it was me and my brother. And from there we went with James Brown a couple years later. How cool was that?
First he sent us out on the road with Hank Ballard and Marva Whitney as a test. And by the time I got to be 18 he put out the call to have us come in and be The JBs. What do you think your influence has been on those who came up listening to your stuff?
Wow, I’ve never looked at what my influence has been. But a lot of cats look up to you.

CITY: This is your first tour in 16 years. What’s been keeping you? Bootsy Collins: Oh man, I just had to wrap my
[ INTERVIEW ] By Frank De Blase
Bootsy Collins is the master of the one — that all-important downbeat that makes booties shake and funk funky. Funk’s swagger and style can also be attributed to this man, who grins behind star-shaped shades while swinging his space bass in platform boots and enough spectacle and glitter to make a Mardi Gras parade look like a funeral procession. Coming up on the heels of his brother — the incredible, late Catfish Collins — Bootsy Collins has thumped and thundered for the past 40 years, developing a trademark style that has spawned and influenced countless fourstring wizards in his wake. As a teenager, he was invited to play in James Brown’s band after Brown caught wind of the Collins brothers’ session work for King Records. As a member of Parliament-Funkadelic, he has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He has also fronted projects like Bootsy’s Rubber Band, The Sweat Band, and Praxis. Collins has a new album out, “Tha Funk Capital of the World,” and is embarking on his first tour in almost two decades. The man gave us a ring (on the one) and talked about taking care of business, his influence, 16 City JUNE 29 - JULY 5, 2011
head around it. A lot has changed, a lot is going on and touring is not as easy as it used to be. It’s a different thing now. It takes a lot more money. There’s a lot more of taking care of business. Everything is so exposed now. So I really had to prepare myself to go out and try and take care of business. It’s a big operation and I’m not a business person; I love music and you get cursed with having to take care of business. It’s horrendous and sickening… I hate that part. And you’ve got a big operation just on stage. It’s a big band.
I’ve always had to do that. I have to bring the people — the whole “P” and nothing but the “P.” And why should I skimp now just because the economy’s screwed up? The people don’t want to hear that, they want to hear some funk and they want to get down. I made sure I got exactly what they want, what they need: the core members of Parliament-Funkadelic, Bernie Worrell, Frankie Cash, Razor Sharp Johnson, who started with me back in the day in Bootsy’s Rubber Band, Blackbyrd McKnight, T.M. Stevens, has got my back… So I’ve got a core group within about 13 members. How do you blend the old-school funk with the new?
It’s like making a stew, a gumbo; just putting
it all together and making it taste good. We took two weeks of rehearsal, defining and re-defining, getting together, making sure we were all on the one. That’s why I call it the Funk Unity Band, because I wanted to be sure we were all on the one. Who first influenced you?
My brother Catfish, who was 8 years older. Since we had no father in the house, he was the one I looked up to. He was the one I wanted to be like. He played guitar, so I wanted to play guitar. He had all the chicks. He would rehearse around the house. I was like 9 years old and it was all very appealing to me, you know? He started getting a reputation around Cincinnati, and I’m like, “I want to be like him.” So I started playing guitar. Then I started listening to people like Lonnie Mack and those instrumentals that he did. And the next one on the scene was Jimi Hendrix and my little cosmic mind just opened up and soaked it all in. That pretty much sealed it for me. How’d you wind up on the bass?
My brother had a gig where his bass player couldn’t show up and I was like, “I can do it.” He was like, “You don’t even have a bass.” And I said, “If you get me four bass strings I can do it.” He gave me four bass strings. And just to show you how the funk works — the funk makes something out of nothing — I put those bass strings on my guitar, my $29 guitar, and I said, “Bam! I got a bass. I’m ready to play with you tonight.” And from
I suppose it’s like that. And that’s a good thing. They can talk to me. They can do things in front of me they couldn’t have done in front of James Brown. Because with James Brown, he was more of a father figure than an uncle. George Clinton was more my uncle figure — I could get in the back seat and throw down with a chick in front of him. I couldn’t do that in front of James Brown. And these kids can get away saying things they couldn’t say to their fathers, and that’s a good thing. I get a lot of people coming to me telling me how I influenced them. Take for instance Victor Wooten — I mean the baddest bass player on the planet — telling me I influenced him, and all I could do was laugh because this cat is so incredible with the technique he’s developed. And it’s like, yeah, OK, I can hear a little bit of this, that, and the other, but these performers today are just taking it way over the top. We were just starting out, creating something out of nothing. Things are more common today than they were back in the day. Bass was not a cool instrument back in the day. Guitar players had all the chicks. You’d go up to a chick and say, “I play the bass,” and she’d be like, “Where’s the guitar player?” You made it cool.
Yeah, I kind of helped make it cool. What’s next?
I’m looking forward to expanding on the Funk University — the online school that we have. We just finalized the second semester and signed on Larry Graham, Stanley Clarke, Verdine White, Jack Bruce, Ron Carter… C’mon man, it don’t get better than that. One last question: is groove really in the heart?
Oh, yeah. Groove definitely starts right there in the heart. If you get your groove on, it’s in the heart.

FOLK-ROCK | Accordion Babes
Most bands sell t-shirts and CDs at concerts, but Renee de la Prade and Amber Lee Baker, a.k.a. the Accordion Babes, also sell a calendar. The 2011 Accordion Babes Album & Pin-Up Calendar features the Babes and some of their cohorts, all West Coast female accordionistas, posing in burlesque style with strategically placed squeezeboxes. It’s all part of the Accordion Babes mission: to sex up your grandma’s favorite musical instrument. This may sound like an uphill climb but the Accordion Babes, both veterans of the San Francisco scene, are undaunted and have embarked on a five-week tour. In addition to their local show, part of the 14 Fridays summer concert series at the Village Gate, the Babes are gigging in such accordionfriendly places as San Antonio and New Orleans.

CLASSICAL | RPO: “Red, White, and Boom!”
It’s a red, white, and blue spectacular as the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra brings us its grandest-scaled concert of the year. Michael Butterman conducts a program that includes “Rhapsody in Blue” by George Gershwin, the “1812 Overture” by Tchaikovsky, the “Stars and Stripes,” and other patriotic tunes to salute the armed services. Leading the charge will be percussionists Jim Tiller from the RPO, Mark Hodges from the Buffalo Philharmonic, and Bradley Fuster from Buffalo College (pictured). The Russian influence will extend to the keyboard with pianist Ilya Yakushev, who is not shy about making a big sound.

one point in the show, Potter played a song that was requested via Twitter. She also sang the chorus to Nelly’s mega-hit “Hot in Herre” while, unfortunately, keeping most of her clothes on. The set was laced with songs from the new album such as “Goodbye Kiss,” “Only Love,” “Low Road,” and the single “Paris (Ooh La La).” But “Hot Summer Night” was absolutely smoking, and could have been the highlight of the show. The encore began with a cappella standout “Nothing But The Water I,” a gorgeous gospel narrative from The Nocturnals’ first record. “Nothing But

Classical in the country, according to Michael Heaston, director of the Young Artists Program and head of the music staff. “Everybody knows Glimmerglass,” says Heaston. “It doesn’t matter where I go, people know Glimmerglass.” For the Young Artists Program, Heaston receives approximately 750 applications from singers per year. He sorts through them to select roughly 250 applicants who give live auditions during his two-week tour across the country each fall. Only 30 to 35 singers are selected — less than 5 percent of those who applied. “These are the cream of young artists,” says Heaston, who was himself part of the program in 2006. “These are students and recent graduates from Juilliard, the Met, the Chicago Lyric Opera, and they come in residency to us for three months. They are the heart and soul of the company.” The young artists sing minor roles in each production and are the understudies for every major role. They perform two 75-minute concerts, on July 17 and August 19, and they present “Meet Me at the Pavilion” concerts.

The shimmer of Glimmerglass Glimmerglass Festival July 2-August 23 7300 State Highway 80, Cooperstown $26-$126 (single tickets) | 607-5472255, glimmerglass.org [ PREVIEW ] BY PALOMA CAPANNA
Located at the base of Otsego Lake, about three hours’ drive from Rochester, is Cooperstown. And, when the evening weather is just so, the walls of what could be mistaken for a gigantic barn roll back and the sounds of singers and musicians float along with the fireflies and the crickets. Take a step closer, and you’ll see a stage facing 914 seats. Welcome to the magic of the Glimmerglass Festival. This season Glimmerglass will present four major productions: one well-known opera, one lesser-known opera, one American musical, and one or two new works. This year’s billings include “Carmen” by Georges Bizet, “Medea” by Luigi Cherubini, “Annie Get Your Gun” by Irving Berlin, and a double bill of “A Blizzard on Marblehead Neck” by Jeanine Tesori and Tony Tushner, and “Later the Same Evening” by John Musto and Mark Campbell. 20 City JUNE 29 - JULY 5, 2011
During the festival more than 60 performances will be staged. Throughout August, you can spend a weekend at Glimmerglass and see all four productions in two days. Founded in 1975 and first known as
the Glimmerglass Opera Festival, the organization’s name changed to simply the Glimmerglass Festival at the request of its artistic and general director, Francesca Zambello. Zambello, who assumed the position in September 2010, arrived with ideas that expanded the festival offerings to include American musical theater. “I wanted to present classic American musicals heard the way that we first heard them,” says Zambello, “and that meant no amplification. We present everything with a full orchestra, 40 pieces, and with big voices.” This year’s production of “Annie Get Your Gun” features Deborah Voigt, an internationally renowned opera star. Voigt will also be the artist-in-residence for the 2011 festival, working with young artists throughout the season and serving as a mentor for them. Glimmerglass first offered an American musical in 2008, Cole Porter’s “Kiss Me Kate.” “We had so many new people who
came for the first time because of the musical production,” says Brittany Lesavoy, director of public relations. “And they came back, saying that they had so much fun.” For Zambello, becoming the artistic and general director allows her to oversee “very unique, individual productions that you wouldn’t see anywhere else,” she says. She adds, “We are very much about high-levelquality theater music, offering interesting productions for our audiences, who welcome diversity and want a chance to see an unusual opera like ‘Medea,’ as well as a classic opera like ‘Carmen.’” Zambello’s credentials could pave the road from Rochester to Cooperstown. She’s been awarded the Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres by the French government for her contribution to French culture, as well as two French Grand Prix des Critiques. She was given the Russian Federation’s medal for Service to Culture and has won a Russian Golden Mask. She’s won three Olivier Awards and two Evening Standard awards in England. And she’s won a Palme d’Or in Germany and a Green Room in Australia. To achieve its musical offerings,
Glimmerglass includes a Young Artists Program that is one of the most prestigious
In addition to the singers in the Young Artists Program, Glimmerglass takes in approximately 70 interns in production, administration, and management. Zambello says, “There’s a huge learning curve for kids here. They get to see leadership by example.” According to Heaston, Cooperstown is part of the magic of Glimmerglass. “I’ve been in this community six years,” says Heaston, “I know everybody’s name; the community is warm and welcoming.” Cooperstown is also home to the Fenimore Art Museum, where a special exhibition of works by American painter Edward Hopper (1882-1967) will be on display to coincide with the Glimmerglass production “Later the Same Evening,” which has a storyline that brings to life several figures from Hopper’s paintings. Lesavoy says, “People have so much fun with the entire experience, picnicking, walking the grounds, enjoying the gardens.” Glimmerglass is situated near the Glimmerglass State Park and the Robert Woodruff Nature Center, and the Glimmerglass Queen offers boat tours of the nine-mile Otsego Lake. The theater itself was designed by New York City architect Hugh Hardy and opened in 1987. Lesavoy says, “One of the things that he kept in mind in designing the theater is our location, among the hills and the rural farmland. We just had a couple stop in last night and say, ‘What is this place?’”

With all that glitters in the digital age of music, I sometimes wonder what little girls in this day and age have to marvel at anymore. Sure, the Madonnas and Boy Georges of my youth were a tad controversial, but they never insisted on going all the way or getting drunk the way Katy Perry does today. Thankfully there is a repackaging movement happening via cover versions of these megahits on viral video. Julia Sheer of Caroline County and Tyler Ward fame, along with former Rochesterian Kait Weston, are at the forefront. They offer up kinder, gentler renditions of the mass-market hits that you and your little pumpkin would hate to miss. Check Sheer’s website for details on VIP packs that include a meet-and-greet.

Art each time. Part of the concept of creating an installation of a city, says Mr. Prvrt, was to encourage viewers to engage with it the way new residents would, exploring and getting to know the buildings and avenues. Bits of interest balance all levels, from a sort of secret underground at foot-level to the ropes of starry white lights below the rafter sky. Rizzo’s feral, child-faced rats and raccoons (bearing the likeness of her muse-son and his friend) stand or crouch on the floor, provoking the viewer to get down and peek into their hiding spaces. Mr. Prvrt and St. Monci’s work dominates the street level, and higher up, Lehman’s old-timey advertisement signs recall an age that perceived itself as innocent. Rutherford’s lamp-lit, ghostly hot-air balloons float above, bearing baskets of feathers and keys. The group’s goal with this installation

Blink and you’ll miss it “Welcome to Sweetsville” By The Sweet Meat Co. Through July 2 280 N. Union St. North, 3rd Floor (Above Flour City Bakery at the Public Market) Tue & Thu 9 a.m.-2 p.m., Sat 9 a.m.-3 p.m., or by appt. SweetMeatCo.com [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY
Local art collective Sweet Meat Co. combines an obsession with old, built-tolast items and a penchant for using them to create impermanent art. The short-run installations by its members are viewable for a limited time only, before being dissolved again into chaos (and some for-sale sections). The newest endeavor, “Welcome to Sweetsville,” is on display on the third floor of Flour City Bakery at the Public Market. But you can only check it out this week: Sweetsville, like Atlantis, is doomed. Though it’s been more than a year since all five members of the group exhibited artwork together in their “Extravaganza!” 22 City June 29 - july 5, 2011
installation at the Hungerford Building, each artist has kept their fans sated with individual shows or collaborative exhibitions by different pairs from the group. But recently, teasers for a new installation appeared on the group’s blog, including photos that captured the soul of the progress with fittingly dreamy, nostalgic-looking images. Entering the space, viewers will find that
the installation is not on the walls, but in a central towering island of stacked and painted wooden boxes and other found and created detritus. These form the buildings of an imaginary city quadrant for the lost and the stray. The installation bears many familiar themes beloved by the group “exploded out into 3D,” says member artist Sarah Rutherford of the sculptural work. “We’re all traditionally 2D artists, taking installation to a new level. It was 2.5D last time, this time, it’s 2.75D.” The bones of the makeshift city are salvaged materials (the group trekked all over abandoned spots to procure material); paintings by Mr. Prvrt, St. Monci, and Erich Lehman create the setting, and the place is populated by Rutherford and Lea Rizzo’s painted people and creatures.
Reminiscent of Charles de Lint’s stories of Newford, the installation forms a sort of every-city place marked by industrial decline and offering glimpses of mythic creatures that perhaps only a few of the residents can detect. The ramshackle urban setting contains child-animal hybrids, old cars, compartmentalized dwellings, brokendown hovels, and plenty of magic. Monci’s abstract monochrome works read as splinters of wood, shards of glass, or light and shadows, but also perhaps the edges of pointier graffiti tags on the sides of buildings. His work lends a gritty feeling of place to Mr. Prvrt’s array of stenciled automobiles, windows, and barrels. Rutherford constructed a bum’s sanctuary half hidden under the stack, with blankets and feathers, and a largerthan-life gypsy woman guarding over the space. Box reliquaries with windows reveal wee residents, or are shuttered against the circling, giant voyeurs. Having the show at the Public Market
brought in a diverse crowd from all over the city during its opening on Friday, June 24. The piece is so packed with nuance that I took several laps around the tiny city at the reception, discovering overlooked elements
was to do something entirely different than its last project, and to dash the expectations viewers might have based on past Sweet Meat endeavors. For Rutherford, the experience of collecting forgotten treasures, of bringing attention to spaces and things most people don’t know exist, and of working with the others in such an intense way are just as crucial as the end result. It can be a challenge to mesh five different styles in such as collaboration, not to mention five different schedules. This requires not getting attached to everything you contribute, and being flexible with what will and won’t work, especially when working with a limited palette of salvaged material. As work progressed, the tiny city came to life, in that it would shift and grow as each member added to it, left, and returned to find it changed by the other artists. Creation and installation of the work took place over the past three weeks, and toward the end there was a sort of “feverishness to it,” says Rutherford. The group is grateful to the photo documentation of the process by Hannah Betts Moncibiaz that appears on the Sweet Meat blog, because the flurry of working created a sort of “forest for the trees” scenario, says Mr. Prvrt, and the photos provide an opportunity to reflect on the process. Note that the show is only open on Market days this week, Tuesday and Thursday 9 a.m.-2 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m.-3 p.m., or by appointment.

“Rheumatoid Arthritis prevents me from carrying out my daily routine.”
ART EVENT | FIRST FRIDAY
Many of the major galleries and museums are between shows for this edition of First Friday, giving you the opportunity to focus your attention on the smaller spaces and alternative venues you might not normally check out. The monthly, city-wide gallery night is held by non-profit, university, and commercial and indie art venues in Rochester, where we all trot about from station to station, filling our eyes and ears with what’s new and exciting in our community. On Friday, July 1, 6-9 p.m. (and sometimes later) you can check out art openings, poetry readings, and musical performances in various locations. Visit firstfridayrochester.org for a list of this month’s participating venues, and check our online events calendar at rochestercitynewspaper.com for more receptions and exhibits. July’s featured artist at The Gallery @ Equal Grounds (750 South Ave., 242-7840) will be Tim Mack, who presents his wildly patterned and whimsical “Collection of Curiosities” 7-9 p.m. More creative strangeness can be found in the surreal works of Sean Madden, presented by Art to Zen Tattoo (4363 Lake Ave., 621-3515), which kicks off at 8 p.m. and will also feature live music by The Freakness.
The Next Step in
Rheumatoid Arthritis If living with rheumatoid arthritis makes normal activities more difficult, consider joining a clinical research program. We are looking at whether an investigational medication is safe and effective in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis when given in combination with regular rheumatoid arthritis medications.
To participate in the study, you must: • be 18 years of age or older • have been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis after the age of 16 • have painful, stiff, or swollen joints despite taking a rheumatoid arthritis medication

E Main St.), many artists and groups will have their studios open for the public to view the work and speak with them. The Main Street Artists (Door 2, Suite 458, 233-5645) will feature work by Sandy Grana Kesel, among other member artists, at a 5-9 p.m. reception.

Theater For those seeking a musical that’s more modern in style than “Camelot,” the 1971 rock musical “Jesus Christ Superstar” already possesses a good-sized dose of the bombast for which Andrew Lloyd Webber either became a) famous or b) notorious. I’ll go with b. McKenna also brings back “Shakespeare’s Will,” which she first played in 2007. On

The principle of something-for-everyone 2011 Stratford Shakespeare Festival Through October 30 Stratford, Ontario, Canada Stratfordfestival.ca [ PREVIEW ] By MICHAEL LASSER
Maybe operating on the principle of something for everyone, the Stratford Shakespeare Festival provides enough variety in 2011 so that anyone who sees all 12 plays will come away excited by some and irritated by others. Not only by the smashes and flops that are part of any theatrical season, but by the choice of plays as well: four by Shakespeare, two musicals, another of the many Moliere productions over the years, a modern classic, a couple of new plays, and some star power thrown in for good measure. The four by Shakespeare range from one of his very best comedies, to two tragedies (including his goriest), to a comic romp that returns Sir John Falstaff to the stage for a memorable final appearance. The most innovative casting this summer is for Shakespeare’s historical tragedy, “Richard 26 City June 29 - july 5, 2011
III.” This one is especially worth seeing for
the gifted actor who plays Richard: it’s Seana McKenna, transforming the murderous hunchback into a “trouser role.” Even more violent than Richard is “Titus Andronicus,” a horrific tale of revenge unleashed. One of Shakespeare’s earliest plays and long considered a minor work, it has begun to intrigue audiences over the last decade and a half — based partly on Julie Taymor’s 1999 bloodsoaked movie adaptation, “Titus.” Stratford has mounted so many productions of the popular comedy “Twelfth Night” over the last two decades that it’s hard to justify another production — unless you run the box office. It sells tickets. Even though it’s one of Shakespeare’s most winning plays, I wonder how badly I need to see it every five years. Here we go again with the story of Viola, who, washed ashore in a foreign land after a shipwreck, dons male attire to serve — and fall in love with — lovesick Duke Orsino. What makes this new production worth seeing is the star power of Brian Dennehy as rambunctious, unruly Sir Toby Belch, matched in folly by Sir Andrew Aguecheek, played by the brilliant Stephen Ouimette. Ben Carlson takes on the always-intriguing task
of defining the character of Feste, sometimes played as a working-class clown. Although “Twelfth Night” with this cast could be memorable, Stratford is doing too much of this sort of thing: mounting a popular play, waiting a few years, and mounting it again with a new cast. I expect more productions of “Twelfth Night” than, say, the three parts of “Henry VI,” but with the whole range of theater to choose from, they fill too many slots with plays they have recently revived. So, aside from money, why in the world would Stratford do Frederick Loewe and Alan Jay Lerner’s “Camelot” even though the last production was in 1997? In the aftermath of “My Fair Lady,” when Loewe and Lerner tried to create a second great musical, they went as far afield as they could, to the court of King Arthur. But the wonder was missing. The result was a romance weighed down by a long, clunky book. The score has some marvelous songs, though, and director Gary Griffin has loaded the cast with such stalwarts as Brent Carver as Merlin and Geraint Wyn Davies as Arthur to try to keep things moving. Ticket sales aside, it remains to be seen if the production can overcome the show’s turgidity.
the eve of Shakespeare’s funeral, his widow, Anne Hathaway, thinks about their lives together and apart in this one-woman show by Vern Thiessen. After seeing the original production, I wrote that its dwelling on domestic matters would have little interest had the woman involved not been Shakespeare’s wife. For those interested in a play they haven’t seen recently, the ones to consider include “The Homecoming,” by 2005 Nobel Prize laureate Harold Pinter; Shakespeare’s comic romp “The Merry Wives of Windsor,” starring Wyn Davies again, along with Lucy Peacock and Tom McCamus; and John Mighton’s “The Little Years,” about a young woman in the 1950’s with an interest in physics and a brother who earns a reputation as a writer. I don’t know “The Little Years,” but it sounds interesting. I’m also eager to see the other two plays. The problems in Pinter’s play begin with Teddy’s return to London after living in America for six years. His arrival leads to a power struggle within the all-male household of father, uncle, and brothers. Meanwhile, the delectable chaos of “Merry Wives” derives in good measure from a Falstaff who is courting two wealthy women at the same time. When he sends the identical love letter to both of them, complications, as they say, ensue. In many of these plays, familiar worlds turn upside down; at the very least, common assumptions come apart — in “The Homecoming” as well as in Moliere’s “The Misanthrope” and Frank Galati’s dramatic adaptation of John Steinbeck’s novel, “The Grapes of Wrath.” In “The Misanthrope,” things go awry in a comic way when Alceste can’t keep his mouth shut, while in “The Grapes of Wrath,” the lives of ordinary people border on the tragic when the Great Depression shatters lives and one family, the Joads, fights to survive. As I read through the casts of these dozen plays, the same names recurred in important roles — McKenna, Carlson, Wyn-Davies, Ouimette, McCamus, but also Brian Bedford, Peter Donaldson, Martha Henry, Sara Topham, Mike Shara, and many more. Who knows how the productions will turn out, but an ensemble company that can pull off so many different kinds of plays in a single season is what defines a place like Stratford at its best.

RECREATION | ROCHESTER PARKOUR
Ever had one of those dreams where you’re running through an abandoned city, bounding over pavement, up concrete steps in three leaps, and from landing to landing in staircases? Maybe you’ve been watching too many spy flicks with intense chase scenes, or maybe your intuition is telling you to check out parkour. Also called freerunning, parkour is “the physical discipline of training to overcome any obstacle within one’s path by adapting one’s movements to the environment,” per the Rochester Parkour website. The practice is mighty useful for everyone from the balance-challenged to those who want to push the limits of what their bodies can do. Rochester Parkour has existed since 2006, and in April of this year opened the only gym in New York state dedicated to teaching parkour. You can take classes at the gym, or attend one of the group’s special events that involve a set course at the gym (121 Lincoln Ave.), such as this weekend’s “ninja warrior” event. On Saturday, July 2, at 5 p.m., participants will get two shots at running the course. Your goal is to complete the course as fast as possible with as few scratches (falls) as possible. Participants must RSVP to email@example.com and pay $10, but the event is free to watch. For more information on this weekend’s event, the organization, or parkour in general, visit rochesterparkour.com. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY tangocafedance.com, localvisionaries.weebly.com. 7-10:30 p.m. $10-12.

THEATER | SHAKESPEARE IN THE BOWL
Long before we had high-budget dramas played out on the silver (and smaller) screens, humanity had theatrical performances to help them reflect upon the crazy and creative ways that people manipulate and mistreat each other. William Shakespeare’s perception and wit about human folly is captured in his works, which will likely forever be respected and performed. The Bard’s popular tragedy “Othello” deals with ambition, jealousy, revenge, doomed love built on the shaky foundations of hero-worship and vanity, and cunning manipulation. The interracial relationship between the title character and a senator’s daughter was shockingly modern for a play written in 1603. The Shakespeare Players, a program of the Rochester Community Players, will present “Othello” as its 15th annual free Shakespeare program at the Highland Bowl (1200 South Ave.). The production is directed by Stephanie Roosa and produced by Patrick White, with co-sponsorship by the Monroe County Parks Department. The all-local cast consists of Jonathan Ntheketha as Othello, Jeffrey Jones as Iago, and Samantha Mehnert in the role of Desdemona. Twelve performances will take place July 1-July 16, each Friday through Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday, at 8 p.m. All performances are free, though donations are requested. Bring a lawn chair or blanket, and insect repellent is strongly recommended. Light refreshments and beverages will be sold on site.

Terrence Malick and the universe [ REVIEW ] by George Grella
the other a kind of Western. He followed those successes with a couple of overpraised failures, the romanticized adaptation of James Jones’s gritty “The Tree of Life” war novel “The Thin Red Line” in 1998, and the (PG-13), written and directed by story of John Smith and Pocahontas, “The New Terrence Malick World,” in 2005. Now playing And that’s it: four movies over four decades, each seemingly longer and more lavish than its Terrence Malick occupies a special place in predecessor, and each generally pleasing the more contemporary cinema, attracting the sort of intellectually inclined critics with its grandeur high-minded praise customarily accorded to and pretension. Now his fifth film, the eagerly masters of his or any other art. He initially anticipated “Tree of Life,” quite accurately established his reputation as a brilliant filmmaker constitutes an epitome of his whole career, possessing a highly individual narrative sense and reflecting and repeating most of his now-familiar a stunning visual style, with two outstanding themes and techniques. The content and style pictures, “Badlands” (1973) and “Days of of “The Tree of Life” underline the director’s Heaven” (1978), one an unusual crime movie, self-absorption, his interest in what I am sure he regards as Deep Thoughts, and a confusion of narrative methods that, alas, recalls the bogus artiness of David Lynch. The picture employs a strange combination of visual and verbal narrative, with a sporadic voiceover, usually mumbled Brad Pitt and Zach Irsik in “The Tree of Life.” PHOTO COURTESY fox searchlight pictures

almost unintelligibly, commenting on the action. It uses its ostensible subject, the O’Brien family, in 1950’s Texas, for excursions into other areas — oh, simple, humdrum matters like time, space, and the cosmos, punctuating it all with whispered utterances about loss, grief, and life. Brad Pitt plays the father, a bitter man who once dreamed of a musical career and out of his frustration treats his sons, especially the oldest, Jack (Hunter McCracken), with a peculiar alternation of brutality and kindness. His wife, played by Jessica Chastain, attempts to protect the boys from their father’s capricious tyranny, which pretty much sums up the central conflict of the plot. To show her relationship with the boys, the camera constantly focuses on her suffering face in long, tight close-ups, often filming her play with her sons from some odd placement at shoulder height, one of many examples of a repetitive artiness. Apparently unable to fill up the movie with that small story, Malick keeps adding confusing and irrelevant content, moving impressionistically back and forth in time to show many repeated moments of Pitt’s behavior and the reactions of the mother and sons. He also jumps forward to show the grown Jack (Sean Penn), an architect, moping around his spacious office in a grand glass tower of a building. Apparently still mourning the death of one of his brothers — the source of the grief in the film — he

wanders through a dream landscape that now and then turns into a surrealist painting. Beyond all that Malick frequently interrupts the tedious narrative to deal with some much more bizarre subjects. In a long silent sequence he shows something apparently intended to depict the origin of the universe, then proceeds through some of the early stages of evolution, complete with dinosaurs. The whole thing looks like a lyrical version of a National Geographic documentary combined with the portentousness of “2001: A Space Odyssey,” and a brief visit to “Jurassic Park.” In much of his previous work Malick often focuses intently on some small object or action — a leaf dripping water, blades of grass blowing in the wind, a curtain billowing through a window — creating a symbolism without signification. He continues the practice in “The Tree of Life,” repeatedly dwelling on bits and pieces of nature in the many interruptions of the drab realism of the O’Brien family’s life. To maintain some interest in the story he shoots the people from all sorts of odd and meaningless angles, with a particular fondness for filming the actors from behind, as if we were peeking over their shoulders into their lives. The movie begins with a quotation from the Book of Job, providing a useful warning that the director hopes to examine the mystery and meaning of life’s tragedies. Unfortunately, “The Tree of Life” bores its audiences long before it reaches its pat, sentimental, and utterly false solution.
Bold are the writers willing to make their central character, the person with whom their audience is ostensibly meant to empathize, a selfish, amoral crotch like Elizabeth Halsey from “Bad Teacher.” Stuffing that nasty soul into the arguably flawless body of Cameron Diaz is another brash move, one that could potentially alienate the fairer, ticket-buying sex, who typically prefer that their hot women at least be nice human beings. But this is Hollywood, so we know that no matter how awful a protagonist is, they’re approximately an hour and 40 minutes away from redemption. Also, this is Diaz, who, genetic jackpot notwithstanding, really does seem like a cool chick, and definitely someone who deserves better than the crude, lazy, and — perhaps worst of all — unfunny misogyny of “Bad Teacher.”

When we first meet Diaz’s Elizabeth, she’s bidding an insincere farewell to her fellow teachers at John Adams Middle School on the eve of her wedding, only to arrive home to a wealthy fiancé who dumps the aspiring trophy wife without warning. So she skulks back to JAMS, where her lesson plan consists of parking the students in front of inspirational-educator movies like “Stand and Deliver” and “Dangerous Minds” while she nips from a tiny bottle or naps off a hangover after a night spent gold-digging. Elizabeth’s ultimate goal of breast implants is galvanized upon meeting nerdy-cute sub Scott Delacorte (Justin Timberlake), heir to a wristwatch fortune. But she needs 10 large for new boobs, because, as her mousy co-worker Lynn (scene-stealer Phyllis Smith, “The Office”) observes, “You gotta get two of ‘em.” So cue various get-rich-quick schemes, from a car wash worthy of a Whitesnake video to standardized-test cheating, as Elizabeth’s frenemy Amy Squirrel (British actress Lucy Punch, “You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger”) looks on with a mix of professional indignation and personal jealousy. “Bad Teacher” then consists of escalating one-upmanship between Elizabeth and Amy, with a couple of lame subplots designed to show Elizabeth the error of her profane, self-serving ways. Now, what this means, of course, is that we’re somehow supposed to root for the carelessly mean Elizabeth to prevail over Amy, a cheerful kook whose only crime seems to be that she honestly respects both kids and justice. But screenwriters Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg (the atrocious “Year One”) take way too long to endear Elizabeth to us, and by then it’s way too late. R-rated studio comedies headlined by women are very rare; coming this soon on the heels of the refreshingly raunchy “Bridemaids,” the (inadvertent pun alert!) broad-based caricatures of “Bad Teacher” feel like a small step backwards off a big
cliff. Yeah, it’s obvious that director Jake Kasdan (“Walk Hard”) was going for an unapologetic “Bad Santa” vibe, but it takes a little truth, not simply cuss words and a rampant id, to earn that third-act absolution. Shame, too, because the cast is aces: Diaz, a reliably go-for-broke comedian, does what she can with her thanklessly written part, as do the hilarious Punch and the slightly skeevy Timberlake. The best part is the deadpan Jason Segel as Russell, the gym teacher; he actually represents us, appreciating the obvious brains that enable Elizabeth to be so crafty and wishing she’d grow up already. There aren’t many directors who move
with such ease between the documentary and narrative genres, which is why most film fans are on board with whatever Werner Herzog does. The latest from the prolific German filmmaker takes us deep into the Chauvet cave of Southern France to allow us a glimpse of Paleolithic drawings, astonishingly well-preserved for being 30,000 years old. And Herzog makes excellent use of 3D, the technology getting the stalagmites to pop and conveying how these ancient artists used the undulating walls to bring their depictions of horses, rhinos, lions, and woolly mammoths to life. Balanced with scientific facts about the Chauvet cave drawings and their creators are sweetly weird ruminations from Herzog, who narrates in his typical pensive but crabby way, blindsiding the scientist interviewees with abstract questions like “Did they cry at night?” So expect a cryptic denouement involving albino crocodiles, as well as a funereal cello score, which, in concert with the hypnotic images, could lull you to sleep. But just power through, because the interior of the Chauvet cave is something you will likely never see in person. Few things can connect us to an unknowable ancestor more than art for art’s sake.

Tudor by the Park
99 Gregory Hill Road A curved stone pathway leads to the stucco, brick and wood Tudor Revival-style house, located on a quiet corner lot just a stone’s throw away from the woods of Highland Park. On one side sits a massive copper beech tree; on the other, a secluded screened porch and driveway. Built in 1934 for a doctor, the current owners have lovingly maintained this property for 54 years. From the main hall, archways open to the dining and living rooms. Randomwidth pegged oak floors run throughout the first floor, some carpeted. The living room has creamy yellow textured walls with multi-paned windows, a wood burning fireplace, and a desk nook between built-in bookshelves. The bright, generous dining room connects to the screened porch. The kitchen has original painted wood cabinets and vintage mid-century Formica, all in good condition. Kitchen doors lead to a generous pantry closet, the attached garage, and stairs to the basement and second floor. In the basement you will find a workroom, half bath, and laundry. The main stairs, with elegant wrought iron balustrade, pass a stained glass window on the landing. A powder room is nestled beneath the stairs. Upstairs are four bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The master bedroom has double closets flanking an arched built-in vanity. The bedrooms have generous closets and attractive builtin storage cupboards. The fourth bedroom
is reached via the back staircase. It has a walk-in closet and its own bathroom with claw-footed tub, making it an optional master suite or private guest room. The bathrooms all have original tile floors and some original pastel-colored fixtures. This house is located in the Highland Park Neighborhood, named for the spectacular park designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, now home to the annual Lilac Festival. The park and neighborhood are built on the land of the Ellwanger Barry Nursery, a leader in the seed and plant industry in the 1800s, contributing to Rochester’s nickname “The Flower City.” It is a short walk to the playground at Meigs and Linden Streets, the historic Cinema Theater, the Highland Park Diner, and myriad ethnic restaurants. For more, see highlandparkrochester.org. The house at 99 Gregory Hill Road remains as elegant and well-built as it was 80 years ago. The period features in the kitchen and bath would delight the lover of vintage details, or offer new owners the chance to add their own touch. At 2,174 square feet, on .16 acres, it is listed at $159,500.

Latest Religious Messages — Unclear on the Concept: India’s Ganges River has become famously polluted, in part by reverent Hindu pilgrims who toss “offerings” (such as clothing, statues and the cremated ashes of loved ones) into it in hope of prosperous lives and holy afterlives. Hindu immigrants in New York City, without access to the Ganges, have called upon Jamaica Bay as a stand-in. The formerly quiet waters adjacent to JFK International Airport now ebb and flow with similar offerings that ultimately litter the bay’s federal recreation area shoreline. Hindu community leaders in New York, with only mixed success, constantly urge greater environmental sensitivity. — From time to time, clever rabbis suggest ways of bypassing ancient Talmudic laws that restrict observant Jews’ behavior on the Sabbath (a day of “rest”). In April, Rabbi Dror Fixler, an electrooptics expert from Bar-Ilan University in Israel, said he could foresee a day when even driving a car might be permitted on the Sabbath. The driver would wear an encephalography helmet that could catch brain signals and transmit them to a car’s operating and steering system, removing the need for “action” on the driver’s part (thus theoretically leaving him “at rest”).
The Continuing Crisis — Mattel revealed that its best-selling fashion doll in the last year, for the age-6-and-up market, has been the teen werewolf “Monster High” model, Clawdeen Wolf, who comes with heavy makeup, a short skirt and high boots, and who supposedly spends her time “waxing, plucking and shaving.” (Says Clawdeen, in promotional materials, “My
hair is worthy of a shampoo commercial, and that’s just what grows on my legs.”) Though Mattel claims the doll celebrates girls’ imperfections, a counselor told Fox News she was appalled that the company tells young girls they “need to sculpt, tweeze, wax and ... change their bodies” to attract men. — Cyber Making-Out: Tokyo’s Kajimoto Laboratory has created a tongue-kissing machine to enable lovers to suck face over the Internet, according to a May CNN report. At separate locations, the pair place special straws in their mouths and mimic a deep kiss, which is recorded and transmitted to each other’s straws. Researcher Nobuhiro Takahashi sees profit in “celebrity” tongue-kissing applications, but said more work is needed to establish individual taste, breathing and tongue moistness. (Another team of Japanese researchers, using a harness-type device, reported making similar advances -- in Internet “hugging,” with sensors that mimic lovers’ heartbeats and even their spine’s “tingling” and stomach’s “butterflies.”) — Tacky: (1) The Columbus, Ohio, school board accepted principal Kimberly Jones’ resignation in May following revelations by The Columbus Dispatch that she, though earning $90,000 a year, swore on federal forms that she made just $25,000 -- so that her own two children would qualify for reduced-price school lunches. (2) Prime Healthcare Services, with a reputation for rescuing financially failing hospitals, reported that two new acquisitions, in Victorville, Calif., and Redding, Calif., somehow curiously experienced rates about 40 and 70 times the state average in patients with a rare Third World Ghanian sickness that, conveniently, qualified the hospitals for enhanced Medicare reimbursements.
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 37 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Make a move if someone you meet intrigues you. Interest will grow quickly if you are proactive in finding ways to engage your love interest in activities you enjoy regularly. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Someone from your past will be intent on getting back together with you. Proceed with caution; it is likely that the same problems that cropped up before will eventually surface again. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You will attract plenty of potential partners if you participate, volunteer or get involved in a cause
you believe in. Your determination to make a difference and to help the underdog or the planet will invite someone who admires your propensity to bring about change for a cause you share. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You will be inclined to fall for someone who is already attached to someone else. Avoid being sweet-talked into a love triangle that isn’t in your best interests. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your vast interests, coupled with your generosity and kindness, will lead to some rather interesting proposals from potential lovers. Being receptive but noncommittal will
put you in the driver’s seat when it comes to picking and choosing the partner who is right for you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Someone will outsmart or outmaneuver you when it comes to cash and affairs of the heart. Don’t be too willing to spend your hard-earned cash on someone you want to impress. Money cannot buy love. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Back away from anyone trying to strong-arm you into an intimate relationship. You can do so much better if you focus on friendship and someone who enjoys the same pastimes as
you. A long distance romance may seem taxing but it also can lead to positive change. Consider making a move. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You need to get along with someone mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically in order for a relationship to turn into something promising and long-term. Anything short of sharing common interests, goals, ethics and morals will not withstand the test of time. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You can change your whole world by hooking up with someone who offers you challenge, intrigue, excitement and
adventure. Look for the person who best fits these qualifications and don’t let go. Without that sort of stimulation, you are likely to become bored and move on. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Set down some ground rules when it comes to love before you begin your courtship. It’s important that you don’t overlook characteristics in a partner that you don’t like just because you are mesmerized by a potent physical attraction. Your partner’s mind must also be in sync with yours. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You need to network and enjoy
the company of people who share your interests. Someone who is as innovative and inventive will tweak your imagination and be willing to engage in activities that only a partner who is right for you would consider. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): What you think you are getting and what you attract will not be one in the same. If someone is too accommodating, be careful not to fall into a relationship too quickly. Chances are good that as time passes you will be disappointed with the way this relationship unfolds.
