Trash talk In five years, Monroe County’s Mill Seat landfill, which takes waste from the county and the City of Rochester, could be full. But county officials want the Riga landfill to last another 25 years, so they’ve applied to the Department of Environmental Conservation for permission to add 118 acres to the current 95-acre landfill. County officials say they expect the approval process to take about three years. The expansion wouldn’t mean the landfill would accept more trash. Instead, officials need the extra
space to keep handling the current amount of trash, since the landfill is nearly full. Officials say the landfill is a reliable, cost-effective, and environmentally sound way to meet the disposal needs of the county and the City of Rochester. But the county’s desire to keep the landfill running has implications beyond the costs and logistics of having a place to put residents’ garbage. It is also an environmental matter that touches on complex issues like waste reduction, reuse, and recycling. And landfills also play a role in climate change.

DOES SEX HURT? Are you between 18 and 50 years of age and have pain with intercourse and tampon insertion? The University of Rochester is conducting a double-blind placebo-controlled research study sponsored by the National Institute of Health to determine the effectiveness of Gabapentin compared to placebo in reducing intercourse pain. Participants will receive Gabapentin one half of the time and placebo (inactive treatment) one half of the time, study-related care at no cost, and $50 per visit, or a total of $300 if all six visits are completed.

The military’s bond of trust
Regarding the letter from Mr. Gregorio concerning rape in the military, specifically his reference to the female officer who was gang raped while passed out at a party of officers (Feedback): What did she expect? What every person in the service should expect: to be protected by her or his fellow officers. All of the men in our family have served in the military, and my son-in-law is currently in the Army. Now that women are serving alongside the men, they deserve, and should demand, the same protection from their peers that the men receive. Military personal need to blow off steam; it is a stressful calling. Drinking can be part of that process. If fellow servicemen are too drunk to drive or try to do something that can harm themselves or others, the other people with them stop them and help. If these people go into battle together and are supposed to watch each other’s back, how can they justify raping anyone that serves with them? It is a bond of trust beyond the everyday friendship type of relationship. The female officer’s passing out is beside the point. Yes, these men should be punished. They attacked a helpless comrade-in-arms, someone who may be charged with protecting them in battle. If she fails her duty to do that because of the crime these men committed, she will be held accountable; so should they now. Rape is not an act of passion; it is an act of violence that degrades the very humanity of another person. And for someone serving in the military to attack another soldier is a worse crime, not a lesser! CHAR HACKER
Thank you so much for Tim Louis Macaluso’s piece, “After Marriage: 2 CITY

the Future of Gay Rights” (News). While I agree that the repeal of Section 3 of DOMA marks significant progress for the United States, to say “after marriage” is really a misnomer. The Supreme Court decision mostly benefits those who are fortunate to live in the 13 states (and other jurisdictions) that have marriage equality. The other states can go on denying marriage equality and other civil rights to LGBTQ communities. Employment discrimination is another significant issue, both for socially at-risk communities and other LGBT people. As a country, we have failed dismally at protecting the rights of all LGBT communities. Why is discrimination OK in Oklahoma but not in New York? This disparity is unacceptable and defies logic. We need a federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act (or, better yet, modify existing federal employment laws to include sexual orientation, identity, and gender expression). I applaud City for its fair and balanced coverage of the marriage equality decisions – but indeed, there is still a lot of work to do to make sure that everyone is treated with dignity and respect through our laws.

Thanks for highlighting this, Mr. Johnston (“Passing the Bucks: Cuomo’s Latest Give-away,” guest comment). It’s a shame that the courts seem to have overruled the constitutional ban. But I hope we all remember that voters can be a powerful force as well. As you said, in 1979, this policy would be considered scandalous. I think with better understanding of the costs of these policies, maybe it will seem scandalous again. That’s why a knowledgeable voice like yours is so important. VIRGINIA BORDEN MAIER
D&C on the move
Gannett began to diminish its footprint in downtown Rochester years ago, despite the D&C editorial page articles on downtown revival, first moving to Roslyn, Virginia, and then out to the
sprawling, grid-locked outer burbs of Fairfax, Virginia, and the D&C printing facility to a suburban office park in Greece (“Historic Gannett Building for Sale,” News). They are hardly still a Rochester company, as identified by local television media during their daily stock market reports. Second, make no mistake about it: an empty building will make a very large hole at a critical downtown intersection. There is no mention of the proposed Rochester Canal District, where the Gannett Building is located. This area designation might just help give a marketing edge to any new tenant should the Canal District plan ever be adopted by the City of Rochester and a strategic planning and investment effort gain momentum.

Whatever George Grella was paid to watch “World War Z,” it is not enough (Film). I am almost zombificationized from the ads on TV during the baseball games. I cannot wait to NOT see it. They would have to pay me CEO wages including special health insurance coverage to recover loss of brain matter. Mr. Grella is to be congratulated for his lenient review. It deserves a Nobel Prize for diplomacy. My three questions are: When a person is transformed into a zombie, is the proper adjective for the resulting creature “zombied,” “zombified,” or “zombificationized”? Is it true that watching this film will result in partial loss of brain matter? Which part? Surely not the sense of humor. Perhaps the sense of smell. The thought of a sequel conjures up visions of a biography of the ex-decider, who is not conceived by copulation but geeksterized. Instead of being propped up for president, he is employed at a carnival, biting the heads off chickens. People used to pay to watch this just as they pay to watch WWZ, professional wrestling, or Jerry Falwell. HELPPP!!! BILL MCCOY

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
The Zimmerman verdict The not-guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman trial wasn’t a surprise, at least not to me. I hadn’t expected anything else. Proving beyond reasonable doubt that Zimmerman didn’t act in self-defense seemed a steep climb. Was Trayvon Martin beating Zimmerman, beating him so severely that Zimmerman was afraid for his life? Zimmerman said he was. Trayvon couldn’t give his side of the story, and there were no witnesses aside from Zimmerman. Who started that altercation? Zimmerman said it was Trayvon, and Trayvon couldn’t give his side of the story. Who was heard screaming for help? When did Zimmerman pull out his gun? Did Zimmerman set out to hurt Trayvon? We have only Zimmerman’s word to go on. Trayvon couldn’t give his side of the story. And during the trial, did the prosecutors do the best job they could? Did they have the best expert witnesses they could find? The trial ended with a lot of unanswered questions. But one thing is not in doubt: as Trayvon Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old boy, walked down a street in a Sanford, Florida, neighborhood after buying snacks at a 7-Eleven, a private citizen decided he looked suspicious, followed him, and after a struggle with him, shot and killed him. That should not have happened. And it did not have to. And here are a few other things that are not in doubt: 1) The verdict sets a terrible precedent, making it likely that Stand Your Ground laws like Florida’s will lead to more tragedies. 2) This tragedy would not have happened had Zimmerman not been carrying a gun. Trayvon Martin was minding his own business, walking in a neighborhood in which he had every right to be. Given that Zimmerman thought he was suspicious, he certainly would never have followed him had the gun he carried not given him a sense of security. 3) It may have been hard to prove Zimmerman guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, but it is too big a stretch to say that race played no role, in Trayvon’s death and in the trial, where the jury included no African Americans. The uncomfortable truth is that race colors our thinking about one another. And people of color are paying the price. We cannot consider Trayvon’s death without taking race into account. It’s also too big a stretch to think that Zimmerman would have thought Trayvon was suspicious if Trayvon were white. Zimmerman’s suspicion and Trayvon’s death were not anomalies. A slide show on theroot.com has photos of unarmed black teenagers and men killed
The uncomfortable truth is that race colors our thinking about one another. And people of color are paying the price. because somebody thought they were acting suspicious. Stories of black men and boys – minding their own business, like Trayvon – being stopped and questioned by police are common. Many black parents say they train their sons about how to act if police stop and question them. And many black parents are terrified that what happened to Trayvon will happen to their own sons. Shortly after Trayvon’s death, the Washington Post’s Eugene Robinson referred to “the bull’s-eye that black men wear throughout their lives – and the vital imperative to never, ever, be caught on the wrong street at the wrong time.” Early this week, Post columnist Robert Samuels recalled Michelle Obama saying that “her husband, as a black man, could be shot and killed indiscriminately at any time — so she needn’t worry greatly about attempts to assassinate the man who would be the first black president.” White Americans do not experience this. “Though Florida’s ‘Stand Your Ground’ law contributed significantly to Zimmerman’s acquittal,” Roxane Gay wrote on salon.com, “the root of the problem reaches far deeper and stretches all across these United States. We must forget the convenient narrative that racism only thrives in the South. Racism is an American problem.” Racism continues to eat away at the fabric of this country. It flourishes, in Rochester as well as in Sanford, Florida. And the George Zimmerman trial won’t be the last time we’ll try to pretend that racism wasn’t a factor in a tragic death.

Former RPD commander sues
A former high-ranking law-enforcement officer in Rochester has filed suit against the city and some of its top officials. The suit, filed in U.S. District Court by Samuel Farina, former westside commander of the Rochester Police Department, specifically names Mayor Tom Richards, Police Chief James Sheppard, and Deputy Chief Michael Wood. Farina resigned from the RPD in 2011, but according to the Democrat and Chronicle, “claims he was blackballed by the mayor and police chief over incidents surrounding the arrest of activist Emily Good.”
Farash Foundation supports charters
The Max and Marian Farash Charitable Foundation will provide up to $1 million in grants to Rochester-area charter schools. The grants can be used to expand existing charters or to create new schools. The foundation was established in the late 1980’s.
Wegmans makes insurance changes Wegmans told some of its part-time employees
that, starting in 2015, they will not be eligible for health insurance through the company. Only employees working more than 30 hours per week will be eligible, say media reports. Wegmans insisted through a statement that it wouldn’t do anything to hurt its employees.
Xerox pursing tax breaks
Xerox officials appeared before the Monroe County Industrial Development Agency board to talk about a possible expansion of the company’s toner plant in Webster. Xerox hasn’t decided on a site for its toner operations, but it could invest $5 million in the building and $30 million in equipment. Webster Supervisor Ron Nesbitt objects to COMIDA incentives for the project.
Lej passes ethics law
The Monroe County Legislature approved a proposal prohibiting county employees and officials from accepting gifts from anyone doing business with the county. Republicans offered amendments to the proposal, which was introduced by Democrat Josh Bauroth, to say that the county would use the state ethic law’s definition of gifts.
Bike boulevards will help Rochester cyclists bypass inhospitable roads in favor of safer, alternate routes. PHOTO PROVIDED
TRANSPORTATION | BY JEREMY MOULE
Bike boulevards for Rochester Some Rochester streets are friendly to cyclists. They have bike lanes or good shoulders, they aren’t heavily traveled, and their intersections are relatively easy to pass through. Other streets are inherently difficult — even dangerous — for cyclists. They may have heavy traffic or little room between lanes of moving cars and lines of parked ones. But they still serve as routes to get people to important places. It’s with the second set of streets in mind that the City of Rochester is looking to the concept of bicycle boulevards: side streets that could

serve as alternate, parallel routes for major, tough-to-bike roads. The city plans to hire Alta Planning + Design to develop a bicycle boulevards plan. City transportation specialist Erik Frisch says the plan should take between nine months and a year to put together, and that the city hopes to move quickly on the plan’s recommendations. The first step will be to identify some of the tough-to-bike roads as well as parallel routes, Frisch says. He uses Clifford Avenue as an example of a road that’s inhospitable
to cyclists, but where an alternative may exist. Clifford has two busy 12-footwide lanes and two well-used 8-footwide parking lanes. But Fernwood Avenue, a less-traveled street, runs parallel to Clifford between North Goodman Street and Portland Ave. The city could identify Fernwood as a bicycle boulevard, Frisch says, and determine whether there are changes that would make Fernwood more hospitable to cyclists and less attractive, potentially, to cutthrough drivers.

Infant death study
Infant mortality is a serious issue in Monroe County, and it’s about to get some added attention. County officials will work with the Perinatal Network of Monroe County to study the causes of death in local children less than a month old. Last week, the County Legislature approved a measure allowing the study to go forward. Data compiled by ACT Rochester shows that the local infant mortality rate regularly exceeds the state figure. In 2010, 6.9 Monroe County children under age 1 died for every 1,000 live births, compared to a 5.1 rate statewide. The county had 59 infant deaths that year, the data says — 44 of which occurred in the City of Rochester. And Act Rochester’s statistics also show that minorities experience higher infant mortality rates. Approximately three-quarters of local infants who die each year are less than a month old, says Carrie Andrews, minority leader in the County Legislature. Andrews and County Executive Maggie Brooks worked together on the study proposal. The legislation says that there’s a lack of data and knowledge about the causes of death in children less than a month old. The county and the network will analyze infant mortality data from several sources, including county
and state Health Department records. And they’ll use the data to develop recommendations for reducing the number of deaths. The legislation says that the county Carrie Andrews. has made progress in FILE PHOTO addressing mortality among older infants. Many of those deaths are due to unsafe sleep environments and are preventable, the legislation says. The county is involved in campaigns to help prevent those deaths. The legislation is a victory for Legislature Democrats, though in a way it’s a victory for Brooks, too. Democrats had been holding up borrowing for two county bridge projects to try to get traction for their ideas in the Lej. They were particularly interested in passing legislation dealing with infant mortality. Now, the Dems and Brooks get credit for an infant mortality study. And because Democrats also voted to pass borrowing for the bridge projects, the administration gets what it wants, too.
The petitions are in, and it looks like the City of Rochester will have Democratic primaries for mayor, City Council, and school board. The Town of Henrietta will see a Republican primary for the supervisor’s office between incumbent Michael Yudelson and current Town Board member Jack Moore. | Yudelson also has the Independence and Conservative lines. | As expected, Rochester City Council President Lovely Warren has filed petitions to challenge incumbent Mayor Tom Richards in a Democratic primary. Richards also has the Working Families and Independence lines. | Green Party candidate Alex White has filed petitions to run for mayor in November. He won’t have to run in a primary. | Nine Democrats filed to run for five City Council seats, and 10 Democrats filed to run for three seats on the Rochester school board. | The Green Party has filed to run candidates for City Council, school board, and sheriff. | Not all of the races are set, because a couple of petitions are being challenged — a common tactic in elections.

Restore Rochester fights for the Fourth The reason former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover stayed in power so long despite his reputation as a ruthless bully is because he knew where all the dirty underwear was buried. Secrets are power, and they can be abused. History is rife with examples. Part of the pushback against the recently leaked government masssurveillance programs has been the birth of a national movement called Restore the Fourth. The movement sprang to life with July 4 rallies in cities across the country, including Rochester, with the ultimate goal of ending warrantless mass surveillance in the United States. Former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden showed that warrantless intelligence-gathering in the US is much more widespread and intrusive than previously known. The NSA is collecting and monitoring massive amounts of data, including the phone records of millions of Americans, to look for ties to terrorists abroad. Restore the Fourth organizers say that the surveillance programs are in direct conflict with the probable-cause threshold set out in the Fourth Amendment. “There’s certainly a role for intelligence and data-gathering,” says Kevin Wilson, a coorganizer of the Rochester chapter of Restore the Fourth. “It’s just a matter of keeping it limited, constitutional, and accountable.” More than 50 people showed up at the local Restore group’s July 4 march and rally that began at Washington Square Park and ended at the Federal Building, Wilson says. And there are more than 100 subscribers to the group’s Facebook page, facebook.com/ rochesterrestorethefourth. The challenge now, Wilson says, is to keep together the diverse factions that make up the local movement — it includes people from the Green Party, Libertarians, International Socialist Organization, We Surround Rochester, Tea Party, Rochester Red and Black, and other activist groups — and to identify priorities and tactics. “We are very much a nonpartisan movement,” Wilson says. “[We’re] bringing people together from all over the political spectrum who are concerned about their constitutional rights — who want to stop warrantless mass surveillance on the American people. Spying on American people is unacceptable.” One of the group’s bigger tasks — perhaps
the biggest — is education, organizers say. Wilson and local Restore co-organizer Dan Cole say that they are aware of the polls showing that a majority of Americans are OK with the surveillance programs. 6 CITY
JULY 17-23, 2013
But Cole says the wording of the questions is a significant problem and skews the outcomes of the polls. The reporting was largely based on the results of polls conducted in early June by Pew Research and ABC/Washington Post. But the Internet news site PolicyMic says the polls were “wildly misleading and have since been flatly contradicted by the overwhelming majority of relevant polling data.” Those early polls did not, for example, distinguish between surveillance of terrorism suspects and surveillance of ordinary Americans, PolicyMic says. Cole points to a June CBS News poll showing that 58 percent of Americans disapprove of the government collecting phone records of ordinary Americans, while 75 percent approved of monitoring people suspected of terrorist activity. “We just need to continue our campaign of education,” Cole says. “This is data that is private, that you don’t want out in the world — that you didn’t consent to have out in the world. And privacy violations like this, spying like this has been used to oppress people around the world.” Top Left: Rochester Restore the Fourth co-organizer Dan Cole.

n five years, Monroe County’s Mill Seat landfill, which takes waste from the county and the City of Rochester, could be full. But county officials want the Riga landfill to last another 25 years, so they’ve applied to the Department of Environmental Conservation for permission to add 118 acres to the current 95-acre landfill. County officials say they expect the approval process to take about three years. To be clear, county officials say they don’t want to increase the amount of waste the landfill takes in on a daily basis, which is capped at 1,945 tons. Instead, they need the extra space, they say, to keep handling the current amount of trash, since the landfill is nearly full. “We’re really requesting a continuation of operations,” says Mike Garland, the county’s environmental services director. Garland says the landfill is a reliable, cost-effective, and environmentally sound way to meet the disposal needs of the county and the City of Rochester. In particular, the county needs to dispose of the sludge from the VanLare water treatment plant; the water treatment byproduct accounts for approximately 10 percent of the waste entering Mill Seat. Garbage from the city amounts to about another 20 percent. The landfill is operated by Waste Management, via a long-term lease with the county. The company also operates, through a separate contract, the county recycling center. But the county’s desire to keep the landfill running has implications beyond the costs and logistics of having a place to put residents’ garbage. The Mill Seat

expansion plan is also an environmental matter that touches on complex issues like waste reduction, reuse, and recycling. And landfills also play a role in climate change. The decomposing wastes, particularly organic materials like yard trimmings and food, emit methane, which is a potent greenhouse gas. Extending the operational life of a landfill can also increase the amount of methane that landfill emits. Mill Seat currently captures about 70 percent of the landfill gas and burns it in generators to produce electricity, which cuts down on the landfill’s methane emissions. Officials have applied for permits to add generators, which would burn off additional landfill gas. New York has tried to address some of the
complex issues around landfills by requiring “planning units” — a term that includes counties or groups of counties — to develop solid waste plans. The plans are supposed to take a holistic look at waste management, with a focus on minimizing what gets landfilled. And they’re supposed to include public- and private-sector operations. Monroe County started an update to its plan in 2009, but is still working with the state to finalize it. The final plan should include a study of the composition of the county’s waste and where those materials are ultimately going — information that can be used to develop public education programs about proper disposal, recycling, or reuse of different wastes. But the county’s Garland says the plan also incorporates several initiatives that have either been implemented or are in the works.
Ecopark in Chili is one example. Waste Management and the county jointly operate the facility, which serves as a drop-off point for certain recyclables and household wastes. Another example: the county’s 2011 decision to accept more varieties of plastics for recycling. The county is in the process of switching its recycling center to a single-stream system — part of the solid-waste plan. Once that changeover is complete, many residents won’t have to sort their recyclables before putting them at the curb. “We believe that through single stream, it’s going to be easier for the resident to recycle, ultimately,” Garland says. “There will be less confusion.”
Americans are generating more waste
than in the past, so landfills, unpopular as they may be, are a necessary evil. The Environmental Protection Agency says that in 2011, the average American generated 4.4 pounds of waste a day. That figure has risen steadily since 1960, when the average person generated 2.7 pounds of waste per day. The numbers have fallen slightly since around 2000, however. But of the 4.4 pounds of waste that the hypothetical average person generated in 2011, 1.5 pounds or 35 percent was recycled or
composted. In 1960, approximately 6 percent of the trash a person generated was recycled or composted, according to the EPA. Approximately 90 percent of the waste in the Mill Seat landfill comes from within Monroe County, though under the host community agreement with Riga, the landfill can accept waste from across New York, excluding the five boroughs of New York City. The agreement stipulates that the landfill won’t accept out-of-state waste. Should the expansion be granted, officials say, those conditions won’t change. And there’s no pressure from Riga residents or officials to shut down or curtail the landfill. In fact, as part of the host community agreement, which was amended in 2011, the town has agreed to cooperate with the expansion process. Landfill owners and operators commonly enter into agreements with the communities in which the facilities are located. The agreements spell out operating conditions for the landfill and often include various payments to the community. Riga Supervisor Robert Ottley likens the landfill to a major industry in the town, and says it hasn’t been a bad neighbor. Waste Management and the county have a good relationship with the town, he says, and they’ve responded quickly to local complaints, most often about odors. The $2 million that Riga receives from the county through the host community agreement means that town residents don’t pay property taxes. They also get free garbage and recycling pickup. “The landfill’s here and it’s not going away,” Ottley says. “That pile of trash is
going to be there forever. And so with that understanding, we need to make the best of the situation we’re in.”
Since the county owns Mill Seat, it
can negotiate favorable terms for the landfill’s use, says Garland, the county’s environmental services director. Ultimately, lower fees to use the landfill mean lower garbage collection costs for county residents. But lower rates can also discourage waste reduction and dampen recycling efforts, says Frank Regan, chair of the Rochester Sierra Club’s Zero Waste Committee. Higher disposal costs act as incentives for keeping waste out of landfills, Regan says. A regional sustainability plan, prepared for the Finger Lakes Regional Economic Development Council, also identifies low landfill-use fees as an obstacle to waste reduction. The Rochester-Finger Lakes region has several large landfills, and the availability of disposal space keeps fees down, the plan says. The sustainability plan identifies several strategies to address the effects that low landfill fees may have on recycling or waste reduction. One proposal is to tax packaging that isn’t recyclable, reusable, or compostable. Another is to charge residents for waste pickup based on how much they throw away — an approach known as “pay as you throw.” Regan says he’d like to see mandatory diversion of materials that could be composted, like food waste. He also says he’d like to see local laws passed that would require festivals and events in Rochester to send as little garbage to landfills as possible.
“The county’s desire to keep the landfill running has implications beyond the costs and logistics of having a place to put residents’ garbage. The Mill Seat expansion plan is also an environmental matter that touches on complex issues like waste reduction, reuse, and recycling.” Recycling, reuse, and other forms of waste diversion can help extend a landfill’s life,
although not drastically. But the programs do help keep some of the more undesirable wastes out of landfills. Plastics, for example, don’t break down easily. And electronics, which under state law are now supposed to be recycled, often contain toxic materials. They also contain valuable materials that can be reused. Some environmentalists say that they have asked about the county’s recycling rate and haven’t received a satisfactory answer. In particular, they want to know how much isn’t being recycled that should be. Garland says that, according to an audit, 69 percent of county households participate in recycling, while 53 percent of Rochester residents participate. About 40 percent of the waste generated in Monroe County is recycled, Garland says. That includes curbside recycling, construction debris, yard waste, industrial recycling, and institutional recycling, he says. The county does expect some reduction in the amount of landfill-
bound waste once it gets single-stream recycling in place. Garland says he expects the recyclables volume to increase by as much as 10,000 tons per year. That’s on top of the 35,000 tons of recyclables that are already being brought to the county recycling center annually. “It’s diverting materials that would have otherwise gone to the landfill, and that’s the goal,” Garland says.

The daily grind [ CHOW HOUND ] BY DAYNA PAPALEO
“I think Rochester has the potential to be the new Portland or the new Seattle as far as coffee goes,” says Tony Colón, who is doing his part to make his prediction a reality. Along with wife his wife, Renée, Tony co-owns Fuego Coffee Roasters, Rochester’s newest bean merchants and one of a few local artisans at the vanguard of this city’s contribution to coffee’s Third Wave. Renée explains: “Third Wave is to the coffee industry what craft brewing is to the beer industry. The young 20somethings are really trying to be coffee connoisseurs.” Adds Tony, “They’re looking to get away from the bigger industries like Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts and they want to support local things that are made artisanally and small-batch.” The Colóns both hail from the northern reaches of New York State; Renée came to Rochester for school, then Tony moved here to be with Renée and to explore a career in coffee. And after seven years apiece working at and eventually managing college outposts of Java’s, Tony and Renée decided to strike out on their own, purchasing a coffee roaster this past January with plans for a retail space at least a year down the road. But things quickly began
falling into place, and Tony’s victory under the Fuego banner in Joe Bean’s most recent Latte Art Throwdown helped to raise their profile. “The cafe was putting itself together and we were trying to keep up,” says Renée. Located downtown across from the Harro East building --- it’s that brightly painted little building with the coffee-centric mural; you cannot miss it --- Fuego Coffee Roasters is a cozy spot where the Colóns roast and serve organic, fair-trade, Rainforest Alliance coffee sourced from all over the world (including beans from Yemen, a rarity ‘round these parts). Because flavors deteriorate soon after grinding, the barista grinds coffee to order and brews individual cups via the plunger-based AeroPress. But by late August the Alpha Dominche Steampunk should be in play at Fuego; it’s a state-of-the-art system that can efficiently replicate different brewing processes, such as French press, pourover, and vacuum siphon. The cold brew is a bit less high-tech, involving cheesecloth, a five-gallon bucket, and a daylong steep that mellows the acidity. Fuego is teaming up with Rohrbach’s to keg the cold coffee, the nitrous giving it the velvety consistency of a Guinness. Plans are underway to also serve tea along with baked goods and other snacks (vegan and
gluten-free options, too), and the Colóns intend to host art shows, public cuppings, and latteart classes. Tony and Renée also hope to offer internships to high-school students interested in learning both barista and business skills. They’re currently working with the Enactus branch at Renée’s alma mater, Roberts Wesleyan College, which provides support to small-business owners while enabling the RWC students to get an upclose look at real-world entrepreneurship. And while Tony and Renée seem to be having a blast experimenting with their roaster and seeing what flavors can be coaxed from the beans (Renée likens coffee’s complexity to that of wine), they’re not losing sight of the fact that many humans really just want a simple cup of coffee. “When it comes to making someone’s drink,” says Tony, “you’re making someone’s day. They might be having the worst day in the world, but when they come in, you serve them with a smile, and you can really make their day.” Fuego Coffee Roasters is located at 167 Liberty Pole Way. It is open Monday-Friday 7 a.m.-4 p.m. (Weekend hours TBD.) Prices start at $1.75. For more information, call 315-244-2415, visit Fuego’s Facebook page, or follow Fuego on Twitter at FuegoRoasters.

A State of Grace [ REVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
Spent a hot Thursday at the steamy Highland Park for The Big Rib BBQ & Blues Fest. The only thing that could have made the combo of food and music any better was if they had a burlesque floor show. Then I could die with a saucy grin on my mug. I rolled up as Steve Grills’ unmistakable guitar was bouncing off the trees and sky along with the fireflies. Walter “Wolfman” Washington followed with some shuffling, Big Easy boogie woogie and funkified soul. I ate too much. On Saturday I saw The Grace Stumberg Band rock the Gazebo stage at the 45th Annual Corn Hill Arts Festival under a canopy of trees. This band from Buffalo rocked classic and stellar songcentric with a cool, casual air and some incredible guitar work from guitarist Grace Lougen. You could say the band was full of grace. I left as Herb Gross & The Invictas (The Hump) were unleashing its classic 60s rock ’n’ roll with the verve and balls of a band a fraction of their age Continued with the Corn Hill Fest on Saturday, seeing The LPs and its classic
rock ’n’ soul and Todd East and the Hot Sweets (does this cat sound like Stevie Wonder or what?). It was another beautiful afternoon in the historic neighborhood’s cathedral of trees. Does it seem like I’m rushing to this part of the review? Well, you’re right. The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion played what I predicted was going to be the best show of the season Sunday night at the Bug Jar. I missed Rochester’s Ginger Faye Bakers, but I got there in time for Canada’s Catl; a two-man dynamo that rocked low-fi and creepy and crampy like Hasil Adkins and, well, The Cramps. Just two drums drove the primal point home. The group will be back in September; fuckin’ go! Next up, The Blues Explosion exploded the blues like a ruptured vein all over the packed Bug Jar and sounded just simply fantastic. Dipping into its generous 20 year catalogue the band was sweaty, raw, and relentless as is righteously rocked for almost two hours. The tone and overall sound was sexy and loud, but I could not get enough. I want more.

It’s Turning Colors’ turn Turning Colors SATURDAY, JULY 20 STICKY LIPS JUKE JOINT, 830 JEFFERSON ROAD 10 P.M. | FREE | STICKYLIPSBBQ.COM REVERBNATION.COM/TURNINGCOLORS [ PROFILE ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
Despite a protracted absence from the glow of the live stage’s limelight, Turning Colors always was, and always will be. And though guitarist Bob Olson slings guitar all over the Rochester musical-genre map in numerous outfits like Anonymous Willpower and the John Payton Project, Turning Colors will always be his home. That’s not to say those other bands don’t give him a wide berth, but if Olson played the way he’s supposed to play --- the way he plays with Turning Colors --he would steamroll the whole affair. Olson is a guitar monster with a soul. Turning Colors sprang from the loins of the late 80’s guitar-centric group Blue Axis, in which Olson played bass. Turning Colors originally lasted from 1993 to 1995. When Olson found himself having to commit to increasing gig demand with yet another group, the Mysterious Blues Band, 14 CITY JULY 17-23, 2013
Turning Colors went dark. But only kind of sort of. “Marc DeSalvo [drummer] and I were still getting together and songwriting straight through,” Olson says. “We just weren’t actively gigging.” For the past 15 plus years, that’s how it’s been. Olson would play with any number of Rochester bands --- including a stint in the Buddhahood --- while still writing and jamming with DeSalvo. And though his current dance card is full, it started to feel like Turning Colors needed to be heard again. The boys in the band --- Olson, DeSalvo, and bassist Dan Brewer -- were poised to play. “So we said, ‘Lets do it,’” says Olson. “‘Lets make this a unit that plays some gigs.’ We had such a backlog of material.” Though Olson is an appropriate and driving
force in Anonymous Willpower, what with the band’s stratospherically sensational, stinging soul, and also a solid contributor to The John Payton Project’s polyrhythmic locomotion and groove, you’ve got to hear the man out front. “I’m kind of a chameleon,” Olson says. And whether you see him in Turning Colors or as a “hired gun with lots of freedom,” as he puts it, Olson rates with classic guitar heroes

like Pat Travers, Johnny Winter, Mahogany Rush, or Little Charlie Baty. They’re all raw, rocking musicians who do it best live. That may cause concern when Olson drops hints of more production going into and onto the band’s impending EP (the July 20 show is a release party for the project). But don’t forget that this is a band that rages righteously live on stage; it’s in your face. Olson assures that that spirit will remain despite a little studio polish. “The new one is going to be a little more produced with overdubs and stuff, throw some little guitar things, atmospheric, ambient things, in there,” Olson says. “We just got a digital recorder so we can get stuff down a little faster. We want to be more self-sufficient.” And though the music may be different in bands like Anonymous Willpower, Olson finds plenty of room to move and groove. “I don’t feel like I’m ever constrained,” he says. “Especially playing with Anonymous Willpower, which is completely different from anything else I’ve done. We’re doing a Dee Dee Warwick Tune or something from Chaka Khan and they end up being my favorite ones to play. When I hear that stuff it affects the way I approach my songs. It’s like, ‘Wow, those changes…I wanna use that.’”

SURF | DICK DALE
With its blurred staccato of rapidly picked notes, its rhythmic thunder, and the roar of its reverb-drenched volume, the music of surf-guitar godfather Dick Dale is full-on primal, savage, and untamed. It’s the call of the wild, the scream from the jungle. It’s big, bad, and menacing. This mastery of the Stratocaster’s rhythm, volume, and musical imagery have made him one of the greatest and most influential guitarists of all time. As with all rock ‘n’ roll, Dale blames it on the beat. “I got all my rhythms from Gene Krupa,” he told me in an interview last year. And since his debut in the late 1950s, Dale has not lost one ounce of his power. But rumor has it this is Dale’s last tour. This may be your last chance to witness the man harness the lightening. Great White Caps opens. Dick Dale performs Friday, July 19, 7 p.m. at Water Street Music Hall, 204 North Water St., $25-$30, waterstreetmusic.com. — BY FRANK DE BLASE Thirsty Thursday’s. TC Riley’s,

FOLK | ERIC TAYLOR
Eric Taylor was born and raised in Georgia, but the bulk of his musical education took place in Texas. While working at a club in Houston in the 70s, Taylor was exposed to the soulful blues of artists like Lightnin’ Hopkins and Mississippi Fred McDowell. His own unique guitar style — combining elements of Americana and country — and a penchant for storytelling have made him one of the most important, and underappreciated folk artists of his generation. Southern blues singer-songwriter BeJae Fleming also performs. Eric Taylor performs Saturday, July 20, 7 p.m. at Abilene Bar & Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way, $20-$22, abilenebarandlounge.com. — BY DAVID YOCKEL, JR. Luca Foresta & Electro Kings.

There may be an ocean separating Newfoundland from its rich Irish heritage, but this critically-renowned rock group has spent the past twenty years building a great big bridge between the two. Great Big Sea has sold over ten million records in Canada and has been nominated for multiple Juno awards. It has built its ever-improving reputation on dynamic live performances and reeling rock and roll interpretations of traditional Celtic folk songs and sea shanties. So fill up a flask with some good ol’ grog and get yourself down to the Party in the Park. Carbon Leaf and Sisters of Murphy also perform.

Classical Caplet’s composition, “In the style of his contemporaries Debussy and Ravel, Caplet wrote an incredibly rich score in one, continuous movement that tells the whole story.” Poe’s story, as it were, is that of Prince Prospero, who invites all of his guests into his palace to wait out the plague. Of course, the Prince differentiates between his invited guests and the uninvited commoners. With the ticking of the clock toward midnight, a masked figure appears, and, although the story reaches a predicable ending, Poe captures the allegory of fate that reduces us all to our base vulnerability. Klorman says that this is the third year
Musical-theater performer Tommy Labanaris will return to the Canandaigua LakeMusic Fest this weekend to narrate a chamber-music adaptation of one of Edgar Allan Poe’s greatest works. PHOTO BY KRISTIN DONNELLY
For whom the bell tolls “Gypsy Strings and The Masque of the Red Death” PART OF THE CANANDAIGUA LAKEMUSIC FESTIVAL FRIDAY, JULY 19 FLCC CONCERT HALL, 3325 MARVIN SANDS DRIVE, CANANDAIGUA 7:30 P.M. | $15-$180 | 690-1220, LAKEMUSICFESTIVAL.ORG [ PREVIEW ] BY PALOMA CAPANNA
Anything written by Edgar Allan Poe is memorable, not the least of which is “The Masque of the Red Death.” First published in 1842 in Graham’s Lady’s and Gentleman’s Magazine, it has been adapted into everything from heavy metal by Crimson Glory to a film starring 20 CITY JULY 17-23, 2013
Vincent Price to the literary spice of Stephen King’s “The Shining.” So why wouldn’t Poe’s short story also make its way into the imagination of classical composers and musicians, both his contemporary and ours? Tune in on July 19, when the Canandaigua LakeMusic Festival presents a concert titled “Gypsy Strings and The Masque of the Red Death.” It turns out that French composer Andre Caplet composed a musical portrayal of Poe’s eerie tale of the pervasive reach of death that he titled “Conte Fantastique.” Now, at this year’s festival, a harpist, a string quartet, and an actor will create a modern adaptation of the score and add narration to create a unique performance. According to Edward Klorman, coartistic director of the festival, Caplet was not a very well known composer, and he died when he was young (Caplet lived 1878-1925). Klorman says of
that the festival will feature a concert that is an original adaptation of music and literature. The festival is in its ninth year overall, and two years ago the first of these performances was based upon Beethoven’s “Kreutzer Sonata” for piano and violin, which inspired Leo Tolstoy’s novella of the same name. Then, last year, the festival created a performance of “The Song of Love Triumphant” by Ivan Turgenev, which Tchaikovsky later set to music. And, for the third year, actor Tommy Labanaris will serve as the narrator. Klorman says, “Labanaris is a lot of fun. It takes someone pretty daring to jump in with a bunch of musicians and figure out how to make music and words into a show.” Labanaris describes these creations as “a really beautiful chance to have the story told in many different ways. It’s also a way to tell a story to music lovers who come to hear music. They [Klorman and co-artistic director Amy Sue Barston] were taking a chance a couple years ago, and it paid off.” Among his many credits, Labanaris has toured with “Rent” (Japan), “The Full Monty,” “A Year with Frog & Toad,” “Copacabana,” and “I Get a Kick Out of Cole.” His credits in New York City theater include “Babes in Toyland” (Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall) and “Granola! The Musical” (New York Fringe Festival). His roles in regional musicals have spanned everything from Che in “Evita” to Jesus in “Godspell.” As the storyteller, Labanaris says the challenge is not to give away everything. “Poe doesn’t do that either,” says Labanaris. “He takes readers through a whole cycle of joy and beautiful lush rooms in the palace, and safety inside the walls of the abbey, in a continuous flow of emotions.” Labanaris will find his way through the challenge as each layer of the
creative process is completed. A few days before the performance, Labanaris and the musicians will sit down and do read-throughs and play-throughs, concentrating on the transitions between words and music. “When all of the pieces are in the same room, it really tells us what the beast will eventually come out to be,” says Labanaris. Another layer is added when lighting is turned on. Then he throws in costuming. Then, of course, the audience is brought in. “It’s really born at the festival,” says Labanaris. “It’s a very unique presentation that not only surprises the audience – it’s only been two years that they’ve been watching – but for us, too. We’re very inspired by it, and that’s why I’ve been drawn back every year and why they decide to do it. It is another way of bringing these classical pieces to life, tightening them up, and creating a different picture to the ear and the eye.” Klorman says the balance of the program
will include other Central European folk music. The concert will open with a duet arrangement of Béla Bartók’s “Romanian Folk Dances,” which were originally written for solo piano. Klorman describes the pieces as “Peasant songs, unwashed music of the people.” The program ends with Antonín Dvořák’s String Quartet, Op. 51, which Klorman describes as “slow, soulful Czech dumka dance music, growing from the same earth as the Bartók.” Listening to Klorman talk about the festival in general, and this upcoming concert in particular, one might find his mood the opposite of Poe’s dour outlook. “Chamber-music festivals are a different animal than a symphony orchestra or a record label,” says Klorman. “It’s all about community and community building. A lot of people from our audiences who have been to the prior concerts have raved, saying that they haven’t been to a performance like it.”

RECREATION | JUNGLE JOG 5K
When I need a little extra motivation to push my running routine, I pretend there’s a giant, truck-sized tarantula pounding the pavement after me. It works, because I have a very vivid imagination. You could dream up similar motivations this weekend at the Jungle Jog 5K, which takes runners (safely) through lower Seneca Park and past the actual wild animals of Seneca Park Zoo (2222 St. Paul St.). Just picture the lions and wolves licking their chops as the tasty morsel that is you trots by, marinating in your own salty juices. The Sunday, July 21, race is family-friendly and includes a few different events for different skill levels and ages groups. The 5K begins at 8:15 a.m., and costs $20 to register ($30 day-ofrace). The Seneca Park Mile starts at 9:30 a.m., and costs $13 to register ($15 day-of-race). A free Kids’ Fun Run for ages 1-7 will take place at 10 a.m. All runners can take advantage of free Zoo admission this day only by showing their race number or T-shirt at the Zoo’s Front Gate. Guests of runners must pay regular Zoo admission ($8-$11, free to members ages 2 and under). To register, or for more information, call 336-7200 or visit senecaparkzoo.org. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

There is plenty of captivating work to appreciate at the Memorial Art Gallery’s 64th Rochester-Finger Lake Exhibition, currently on view in the Grand Gallery. Guest curator Alex Nyerges, the director of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, was tasked with selecting 100 works from the 623 submitted. Eighty-one artists are represented, 31 of whom are new to the Rochester-Finger Lakes Exhibition series. The show offers a great window into the current interests and concerns of some of Western and Central New York’s most talented artists from a wide range of ages and many walks of life. The full circle of blooming nature and its remnants are explored by Rochester-based writer and artist David Dorsey, whose work is represented here in three striking paintings. The first two in the line, “Eggplant and Bok Choy” and “Still Life with Pocket Door,” are painted so vividly with almost unreal, vibrant colors that they seize viewers’ attention, enticing with beautiful freshness. The living is cast against the long departed with his third painting, “Skull Unearthed Circa 1930,” a stark work of a pale room washed in clean light with a weathered skull propped atop a cardboard box. The quietude of the work is enhanced greatly by the single black audio speaker sitting silently on a shelf and the nearly toothless, gaping maw of the human remains. Plenty of artists in the show celebrate and showcase the concept of form in diverse ways. Inanimate objects take on their own life and personality in Christine Sullivan’s big, bold painting, “The Cardinal,” which with highly textured impasto strokes depicts mostly white and one single red piece of laundry on the line, undulating upon the invisible tides of the air. In Lee Hoag’s “Capsule Dream” and “Dream Drill,” glass and earthenware vases, metal Jello molds, and other manmade objects flow together to create new, elegant objects of imagined utility. 22 CITY JULY 17-23, 2013
Christopher McEvory’s mixed-media “Release
of Form” explores what a lack of order might look like. His work is a panel filled with what appears to be a field of ever-shifting waves of matter and energy, the reflective surfaces referring to each other part of the whole. Similarly, Jack Wolsky’s “Ain-Yesh #3” is an encaustic work that refers to the mystical Judaic (and Buddhist) concepts of Being and Nothingness. Wolsky, who has now participated in 22 Rochester-Finger Lakes Exhibitions, quite effectively captured the look of open, vibrating space, golden and shimmering with potential. Jonathan Merritt’s two large black-and-white photographs, “Solace 1” and “Solace 3,” are also an homage to thresholds, each attempting to replicate the emptiness and revelations found in the low light and loneliness of traveling at night. Merritt captured what seem to be empty, cold spaces, in which indeterminate objects and forms begin to arise from the dim world. “I want viewers to stand before these images and become lost in the visual confusion, to find consolation in the stillness of an undecided world,” says the artist in a provided statement. For the first year, Jonathan joins his father Stephen Merritt, who is a Rochester-Finger Lakes Exhibition vet. The elder Merritt’s fine forms are found in public and private collections all over the country. This show includes his “Cairn Study,” a slip-glazed, balanced stack of terra cotta discs and other shapes, which refer to the way people have always marked graves and commemorated places of importance with stacked stones. John Griebsch also explores the way humans have marked the earth, by photographing evidence of industry from his 1952 Cessna. If you think your photography supplies are pricey, imagine factoring in gas for enough flights to get the shot right. In “Steel Mill and Water Truck — Gary, Indiana USA,” Griebsch captures the rusty maze of a steel mill, cut with a fluffy puff of smoke that actually seems clean by comparison. In his two other photographs, of quarries, he captures the shadowed-and-lit patchwork of dissected land, the stitches of tire tracks, and dried trails from the flow of water which reveal something of the topography. It would not be difficult to write an entire review
exploring Syracuse-based artist Meredith CantorFeller’s enigmatic “American God of Domestic Excess,” which can be viewed as a commentary on how we have become led so astray by all that is marketed to us. A seemingly discontented woman sits in her undergarments with a faraway gaze, amid balloons with “CLEARANCE” on them, with a horse bit around her neck. She is surrounded by staging devices: curtains and a photo of an exterior that are weakly posted to the

wall behind her, and hang as limply as her posture. The unhappy lady seems utterly resigned, waiting for the uncertain to arrive. Donalee Peden Wesley of Marcellus is among the few artists in the show who dip into the dystopian. In the mixed media work, “Better Living Through Chemicals,” three men sit outdoors wearing coverall suits and birdfaced plague-doctor masks (made theatrical by Venetian dramas), each with black birds perched on their bodies and around them, vigilant. In the field behind them, animal skulls and remains are hung on posts and on wires “The drawing speaks of our reliance on chemicals to solve our problems, be they real or imagined,” says the artist in a provided statement, citing that industry has told us we need modified food, dangerously extracted gas, and factory farmed animals treated with antibiotics to be kept “alive in squalor.” The work is filled with a patient sense of doom, and in the artist’s words, these combined scenarios are “a prime condition for the next plague.” First-timer Dale Klein offers perhaps the most hope-filled piece in the show, an absolutely gorgeous aquatint and etching print of “Hadang,” who is the Senegalese matriarch of the family that hosted Klein’s daughter when she studied abroad. In her artist statement, Klein touches on the hospitality as well as the fiercely defended independence of the people, both of which are present in the stance the subject. A global family was acknowledged and celebrated in this work, after gratitude moved Klein to travel and embrace the woman who cared for her own kin.

SPECIAL EVENT | FULL MOON FLASHLIGHT TOURS
The United States is a baby country, and we don’t have the abundance of thousand-year-old structures that Europe does. (It’s unlikely that we ever will, considering our shortsightedness in knocking down cultural feats of architecture, such as our Claude Bragdon-designed train station.) Organizations such as The Landmark Society of Western New York seek to preserve structures when possible. Such is the case with the Stone-Tolan House Historic Site (2370 East Ave.), part of which was built in 1792, making it the oldest place in the county. The 200-year-old structure was once a farm and tavern, and provides a good idea of what the original tavern room, kitchen, parlor-bedroom, summer kitchen, orchard herb and kitchen gardens, smokehouse, and privy were like. The site is open for tours April through December, Fridays and Saturdays, noon-3 p.m. Regular tours cost $5 for adults and $2 for children. This week, partake of a Full Moon Flashlight Tour, which provides the opportunity to tour the tavern room, kitchen, and other spaces, stroll the grounds and the kitchen garden, and a look at the late 18th century barn, and 200-year-old lawn games and toys. The evening wraps around the campfire (bring a chair or blanket, benches provided) for stories and games and complimentary campfire-popped corn. There is an extra charge for s’mores kits. The event takes place Tuesday, July 23 (and again on August 20), 7-8:30 p.m. This special event costs $8 per person or $18 for families ($6 and $15 for Landmark Society members). Reservations are not required, but for more information, call 546-7029 x12 or visit landmarksociety.org. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY 1150 Winton Rd S This year on June 30 the market will temporarily move to the parking lot at Temple B’rith Kodesh, 2131 Elmwood Avenue (across the street and slightly west of Brighton Town Hall) 242-5046. brightonfarmersmarket.org.

Humans, robots, monsters [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA
“Pacific Rim” (PG-13), DIRECTED BY GUILLERMO DEL TORO NOW PLAYING
The fact that the great beast from the depths of the sea haunts the human imagination may account in part at least for the appearance of “Pacific Rim,” perhaps the most excessive blockbuster of the season. The sea monster that threatened Andromeda, the mother and son duo that Beowulf fought, Moby Dick, the great white shark that wants to eat Long Island in “Jaws,” and of course all those Godzilla flicks, derive from the same racial memory. The
myth, however, reaches some kind of zenith in the hands of Guillermo del Toro, who, with the assistance of state of the art technology, transforms it into a science fiction apocalypse. A wordy exposition by the protagonist, Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam) recounts the history of sporadic attacks on West Coast cities by Kaiju; huge, almost unstoppable creatures who emerge from the depths of the Pacific and stomp, crush, and kill everything in their path. When tanks, cannons, and jet planes prove largely ineffective against them, the military creates Jaegers, gigantic robots inside which a pilot, working in tandem with another pilot — the machines require two skilled handlers — fight the Kaiju with a whole arsenal of weapons. Beyond that basic situation, which naturally allows for a great many interminable fights between machine and beast, both of them about the size of a skyscraper, the script introduces a further, very strange element. To manipulate the Jaegers, the pilots must form a mental connection, called a “neural handshake,”

(really) which allows them to enter each other’s mind, a sort of melding and bonding, in which they share perceptions, memories, and reactions, a situation they call “The Drift.” After all that back story, the picture proper begins, showing the Kaiju increasing their devastating attacks on seacoasts all over the world, as humans keep losing the battles against them. The government establishes a base, populated by an international crew of the best Jaeger pilots, armed with the latest machinery, only to discover that the Kaiju keep getting larger, more vicious, and more varied in form. The commander of the base, Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba), recruits Raleigh Becket to operate a gigantic robot called — they even name these things — Gipsy Danger (again, really), which introduces the human side of the story. After some tiresome business about conflicts with a fellow pilot, Raleigh persuades Stacker to team him up with the most promising cadet, a Japanese woman named Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi). They go through the whole neural handshake, mind meld, Drift business, which explains a good deal about Mako’s past and Stacker’s role in saving her life, and of course solidifies the romantic relationship that has been developing with painful obviousness throughout the movie. For those who like that sort of thing, “Pacific Rim,” provides a sort of paean to machinery, celebrating its technology, computers,

weaponry, and showing Raleigh’s affection for good old Gipsy Danger. Its enormous monsters look like a compendium of every frightening creature from every previous movie; amalgams of shark, octopus, snake, dinosaur, pterodactyl, with bits of our old friend Godzilla added here and there. Since all the battles take place at night in heavy rain, the picture never shows a whole beast clearly, a cop-out for its technicians and special effects wizards. Despite all the spectacular effects, the Drift, and the repeated battles between Kaiju and Jaegers, the script solves the puzzle of the monsters’ attacks through the inspiration of a couple of geeky scientists. Though not long on logic, the movie needs some kind of explanation beyond the persistence of myth for the appearance of the beasts and the means to defeat them. The actors tend to shout at each other a lot, possibly an appropriate method in so loud a motion picture, but hardly distinguish themselves in any way. Charlie Hunnam and Rinko Kikuchi perform in the functional manner demanded in a film that depends on nonhuman elements for its stars. As Stacker Pentecost, Idris Elba provides the only really impressive performance in the movie, projecting a most convincing sense of authority and a hint of emotional depth. Otherwise, “Pacific Rim” belongs with the rest of the Hollywood summer spectaculars and may qualify as the most extreme, the most violent, and the loudest of them all.
According to Jewish tradition, a child comes of age once they turn 13. This is known as becoming a bar (or bat for girls) mitzvah, and it means that they’re now mature enough to truly be considered a part of the community. And usually, their parents throw a big party to mark the occasion. It’s a pretty sweet deal. Anyway, with that in mind, I’ll say “mazel tov!” to The Rochester Jewish Film Festival for having reached its milestone 13th year. Headed by returning festival director Lori Michlin Harter, the RJFF is presenting a record 26 films this year, coming from all around the world. What follows is a preview of just a few of the films being screened this year. Visit rjff.org for the complete schedule of films and ticket information. Tickets can also be purchased over the phone at 461-2000. Renowned photographer Rudi Weissenstein chronicled the early history of Israel. For more than 40 years, the extensive archive of his photographs was housed in Pri-or Photohouse, a small shop in Tel Aviv run by Weissenstein’s

adorably curmudgeonly 96-year-old widow, Miriam, and her grandson, Ben. “Life In Stills” documents what happened when Miriam and Ben learned that the building where the shop resides is set to be demolished by the city in order to make way for new construction. Given that the Israeli institution was home to nearly 1 million negatives, moving was a nearly insurmountable task. What starts as a quest to save their family’s legacy ultimately becomes a bittersweet and moving tribute to Ben and Miriam’s bond. (Screens Sunday, July 21, 7:30 p.m., Dryden Theatre) Among the many stories of courage and bravery amidst the horrors of World War II, that of Aristides de Sousa Mendes (Bernard Le Coq) is one of the more obscure. “Disobedience: The Sousa Mendes Story” admirably seeks to rectify this. The Portuguese consul in Bordeaux, France, Mendes was instructed by his government to deny Jewish refugees and other “undesirables” visas that would allow them passage across the border. Instead, he defied the Nazis, as well as his own president, and went ahead and issued the visas anyway. In total, he issued nearly 30,000, saving countless lives in the process. Though the film forgoes some complexity and nuance, it tells a simple, but touching, story of heroism in the face of seemingly crushing odds. (Monday, July 22, 8:30 p.m., Dryden Theatre) The absorbing biopic “Hannah Arendt” focuses on the period during which the titular philosopher and political theorist covered the 1961 trial of former Nazi officer Adolf Eichmann for The New Yorker. The film is perhaps most gripping when we see Arendt -- herself a survivor of a French prison camp -- watching and scrutinizing Eichmann as he’s questioned. Instead of the monster everyone expected, he was instead a bureaucratic “nobody” claiming that he was simply following orders. Barbara Sukowa gives a remarkable,
Oscar-worthy performance as Arendt; she allows the audience to see a great mind at work, wrestling with the horrifying capability of humanity at its worst and uncovering “the banality of evil.” (Thursday, July 25, 1 p.m., JCC Hart Theatre) A young Russian violinist named Sasha (Philippe Quint, himself a Grammywinning violinist) finds himself caught between the world of classical music and the more soulful music he sees performed on the streets of New York City in the amiable musical dramedy, “Downtown Express.” Sasha’s father dreams of his son becoming a successful classical musician, and with a scholarship to Juilliard, it seems his son is well on his way. But when Sasha sets eyes on a pretty busker named Ramona (singer-songwriter Nellie McKay) and her band, Downtown Express, he discovers a music that’s more exciting to him than the kind heard in stuffy concert halls. The plot is somewhat formulaic and McKay comes across as overly stiff when she’s not singing, but the story is skillfully told and director David Grubin’s documentary background lends the film an appealing observational quality. Plus, the music is fantastic. (Saturday, July 27, 7:30 p.m., Dryden Theatre) “Hava Nagila” is a musical staple at Jewish celebrations, so it’s fitting that the bar-mitzvah-year installment of the festival comes to a close with “Hava Nagila: The Movie,” a fun, frothy little documentary tracing the history and oddly murky origins of the song that’s all but inseparable from Jewish culture. Director Roberta Grossman keeps things moving briskly, packing the film with relevant clips from all areas of pop culture, and interviews with everyone from Harry Belafonte to Leonard Nimoy. But be prepared: after watching, it’s more than likely you’ll have the tune stuck in your head until just around the time next year’s festival rolls around. (Monday, July 29, 7 p.m., Dryden Theatre)

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD
Government in Action
— Suspicions Confirmed: A warehouse in Landover, Md., maintained by a company working on contract for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, contained “secret rooms” of furniture and equipment described as “man caves” for company employees. The EPA inspector general announced the discovery in May, and the government confiscated TVs, refrigerators, couches, personal photos, pin-ups, magazines and videos that the contractor’s personnel brought in while ostensibly “working” on agency business. — Scotland’s Parliament was revealed in May to be considering, as part of its Children and Young People Bill, guaranteeing that specific, named persons would be appointed for every Scottish child at birth, charged with overseeing that child’s welfare until adulthood. A Daily Telegraph story acknowledged that the bill is “remarkably vague” about the duties and powers of the designated persons and thus it is unclear how the law might affect typical parent-child relationships. — Update: “(Supermodels) is the one exception (to U.S. immigration policy) that we all scratch our heads about,” said a Brookings Institution policy analyst, speaking to Bloomberg Businessweek in May. Foreign-born sports stars and entertainers are fast-tracked with American work permits under one system, but supermodels were excluded from that and must thus compete (successfully, it turns out) with physicists and nuclear engineers to earn visas among the 65,000 slots available only to “skilled workers with college degrees.” As such, around
250 beauties are admitted every year. (The most recent attempt to get supermodels their own visa category was championed in 2005 and 2007 by, appropriately, then-U.S.-Rep. Anthony Weiner of New York.) — In Lytle, Texas, in May, just 33 people voted for candidates for three openings on the school board, including the only voter who cast a ballot in District 1. Christina Mercado was the 1-0 winner, but someone else voted for her. Mercado cannot vote for District 1 candidates because she does not live there, and neither does the one candidate who opposed her. However, according to Texas law, Mercado can legally represent District 1 on the school board.
Creme de la Weird
Whitby, U.K., town councilman Simon Parkes, 58, confessed to a reporter in June that he had had an extramarital affair -- in fact, an extraterrestrial extramarital affair -- with the 9-foottall Cat Queen, and that she had born him a child. Parkes said the Cat Queen is biding her time until technology is available to bring her and the child to Earth. Said Parkes, “There are plenty of people in my position who don’t choose to come out and say it because they are terrified it will destroy their careers.” Parkes said his wife knows about his periodic meetings with the Cat Queen and is “very unhappy, clearly.”
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 29 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): You’ll attract lovers, but you’ll also make someone jealous. Make sure a friendship you have with someone isn’t going to affect the way someone you like feels about you and the relationship you have with an ex or a possessive friend. Keep your feeling out in the open. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Stick to the one you know, trust and can count on, even if someone entices you to get involved in intimate experimentation. Consider the consequences, and make a decision based on doing what’s right for everyone involved. Question the morals of anyone who doesn’t respect your situation.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Explore your options with someone you fancy. Address living arrangements and what you would like to see unfold. Taking control of your personal situation will show your intent and your desire to make a commitment. Act on your feelings and secure your position. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Enjoy the things you love to do, and take pleasure in meeting new people who share your interests. Give new relationships a chance to grow and develop into something substantial. You’ll experience far more pleasure building intimacy slowly but surely. Let your intuition guide
you to a commitment. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ll attract secret affairs and must be cautious with the signals you send. Not everyone will consider your flirtatious and friendly demeanor as a passing fancy, and possessiveness is likely to develop, which will stifle your fun. Don’t play games. If you aren’t interested, don’t lead someone on. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Engage in projects and pastimes that interest you. Offer your expertise, and you will attract someone with plenty to contribute personally, emotionally and with regard to your goals. Mixing business with pleasure will bring
a whole new concept to the way you move forward. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ll attract someone who mimics who you are and what you like. Be careful moving forward, or you may end up with someone who hasn’t been honest with you about likes, dislikes, dreams, hopes and wishes. Question anyone who appears to be too good to be true. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your heart is in the right place, and what you have to offer will be inviting. An unusual lifestyle that promises to be intense, passionate and full of mystery and suspense will be engaging enough to capture your heart and lead to
a lifelong commitment. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Honesty will be a must when dealing with potential partners. Ulterior motives are present, and sending signals that do not portray what’s being offered will backfire. You may desire change, but what you see and what you get are not likely to coincide. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t change your mind midstream when it comes to personal matters. Follow through with your plans until you come to a conclusion that allows you to make a choice that you will not regret. A partnership that is unpredictable will not lead to long-term happiness.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Make sure your heart is into a relationship before you make a promise you may regret. You can enjoy experimenting with someone you are attracted to as long as you are honest about the way you feel and what you are currently offering. A change of heart is apparent. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Size up your personal situation, and make the choice that will bring you the most fulfillment emotionally, physically and financially. Without these components, you are likely to grow dissatisfied with the prospects that develop. Don’t make a commitment until you are certain.
