The holy war next door The images of dismembered fetuses seem to sear into the sidewalk in the 100 block of University Avenue. Anti-abortion advocates, some carrying signs, others holding religious objects like crucifixes and rosary beads stand on both sides of the entrance to Planned Parenthood’s Rochester office. When a blue pickup truck pulls out of the lot, a protestor yells at the driver and passenger, “If you had an abortion, you just murdered your baby.” The
startled driver says that they were only there for a medical exam and birth control. “From people who kill babies?” the protester says. “Why would you go to a place that kills babies for that?” Such exchanges — and much worse — are common outside Planned Parenthood’s facility. Officials at Planned Parenthood say that they are used to the demonstrations. But it’s not just the facility and its clients that are affected.

RIT is partnering with RCSD
Reporter Tim Louis Macaluso is right: RIT should be partnering with the City School District to improve educational results (“How About Partnering With the District?” News). In fact, we have been partnering with them for years, and will continue to do so, even as we partner with Uncommon Schools in the development of a new charter high school. Our RIT Science and Technology Entry Program provides academic enrichment and college and career exploration to 7-12 grade students. Our Middle College program offers college readiness skills to academically eligible 9th through 12-graders; our Rochester City Scholars Program covers full tuition for financially eligible City School District graduates who are admitted as freshman to fulltime study in baccalaureate programs at RIT. Since its inception in 2010, 74 scholars have come to RIT, 81 percent are still in the program, and 42 percent have earned a 3.0 grade point average or higher. The first class of scholars is expected to graduate in May 2014. Our move to support development of a charter school comes from our experiences with these programs and our strong belief that we need to do more. I wish we had four times as many City Scholars, 2 CITY
but frankly, not enough city students are getting the academic preparation to graduate with the necessary grades, let alone succeed in the academically rigorous university setting. It’s true, we have a vested interest. Universities need a stronger pipeline of future students who are prepared for college. Until higher education contributes constructively to righting the K-12 ship, it will continue to founder and the futures that await our urban youth will continue to dim. To say, as Macaluso did, that this partnership “does not rise to the level of being innovative” shows a misunderstanding of how unique such a partnership is, even at the national level. And it underestimates our commitment, which includes participation from our faculty and students as well access for these students to the university’s classrooms, laboratories, and other facilities. Uncommon Schools’ Rochester Prep has a proven track record of improving learning results for its students. We want – and need – to support that. Rather than quibbling over where a student is enrolled, we must find ways to cultivate academic success among children who live within the city of Rochester. BILL DESTLER

Tap and Table on our review
I am sorry that Ms. Kenyon didn’t enjoy her time at my restaurant, and I do not feel that the overall article is a fair assessment of the food (Dining Review: Tap and Table). We put a strong emphasis on serving world-class beer and pairing it with the dishes on our menu. We make recommendations for a beer with every dish. There is a hugely diverse range of flavors in craft beer and we
SEPTEMBER 25 - OCTOBER 1, 2013
feel they enhance the meal. This is a major part of what sets Tap and Table apart from other restaurant experiences. I wish Ms. Kenyon had explored this area that is obviously an important part of our identity. While there was no mention of the service in the article, I hope that Ms. Kenyon enjoyed my staff. They provide a knowledgeable, friendly and professional experience. I receive many compliments in this area. Our goal is not “reinvent and reimagine,” as Ms. Kenyon suggests. We prepare dishes with the finest ingredients that are available at the time and strive to keep the food simple and elegant. We hope that the quality and essence of the ingredients are able to shine through. While Ms. Kenyon may believe that we do not “fully reflect Rochester and its surroundings’ unique food bounty,” readers can enjoy a locally sourced food experience that is made possible through our current relationships with the following New York farms: Seven Bridges Farm (Lima), Bolton Farms (Hilton), Cayuga Produce (Cayuga), Lively Run Goat Dairy (Interlaken), Oink and Gobble (Interlaken), Pittsford Dairy (Pittsford), Red Jacket Orchards (Geneva) Mason Farms (Williamson), Old Ridge Farms (Williamson), Grassland Farms (Ovid), and Lagoner Farms (Williamson) JOE MCBANE

Do black teachers make a difference?
Regarding your “Classroom Chaos” article: The consensus for some time now, including that of the dozen ministers mentioned in the article, is that one of the more attainable solutions to improving the dismal graduation rates and “out of control” behavior
of city school students is to increase the number of African-American teachers, especially males. That’s either common sense or an assumption, and if the later, how safe an assumption? For one thing, more and more of non-white teachers are born or raised or live in the suburbs and may have little in common with their students other than the color of their skin. I once asked a popular black teacher at Franklin High School, who has since died, what difference he felt his race and gender had on his students; his response: “Ask my students.” Seems to me there should enough data now supporting this assumption; how are kids performing and acting with primarily African-American (male) teachers? Otherwise, assumptions abound. JIM GRAHAM
I first thought Mary Anna Towler’s “Slim Progress on Racism” was a satirical piece (Urban Journal). Slim progress? Really? We have a black president, a black attorney general, and roughly 20 percent of the federal workforce is black while only 14 percent of the US population is black. Forty-plus percent of all federal entitlements go to black Americans – three times the rate that go to whites and five times the rate that go to Hispanics. I laughed out loud when Towler referenced “the assault” on voting rights. You need an ID to drive a car, cash a check, take out a library book, and buy a beer, but requiring an ID from someone if they want to vote is racist? Yes, racism still exists in our country today, but not Jesse and Al’s version of racism from yesteryear. Today’s racism has created an atmosphere that makes it ok for blacks to “expect” (and receive) better treatment than whites and to receive compensation without
obligation. It’s also created a massive population of selfloathing white Americans (the mainstream media, politicians, actors, musicians, professors, and in many cases our own children and grandchildren) who are taught to be ashamed for sins they did not commit (slavery, bigotry, etc). Towler didn’t mention the white kid on the bus who was nearly trampled to death; three black teenagers have been charged. Or how about the World War II (white) vet who was beaten to death and blacks have been charged? Or the Australian baseball player in Oklahoma who police say was killed by black kids because they were bored? Articles like Towler’s are not only completely false, they are also counterproductive. I’d like to think blacks who suffered the tragedy of slavery would equally be offended by the reverse racism that exists in our society today. I believe that they only wanted to be free and be able to have the same opportunities that every other American has. Unfortunately, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Obama don’t want equality for blacks. They want a leg up, a free pass, a guarantee of success, happiness, etc. Our Constitution clearly states that all people have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This is not a guarantee of happiness, riches, etc. It’s a guarantee of the right to pursue it, and your success or failure falls entirely on your shoulders, based on your work ethic, ingenuity, intellect, etc. Slavery would never have ended if not for the brave (and just) actions of millions of white Americans, many of whom paid the ultimate price for the freedom that black Americans enjoy today. There are no more debts to be paid or reparations to be had. Slim progress? No, massive progress that basically has eliminated racism as it was once known. TOM BAGLIO

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
The gun carnage grows. How much do we care? Is there anything left to be said about guns and violence? Charles Blow got it right in the Times following the terror in the Washington Navy Yard last week. “Another mass shooting,” Blow wrote. “Another round of shock, sadness, and outrage. Another pitched discussion about rights and responsibilities, mental illness and background checks. And then nothing.” And then nothing. Americans own vastly more guns than the people of any other country – “simply too many guns in this country,” Blow wrote, “to ever ensure that some portion will not fall into the hands of the criminally inclined or the violently insane.” And Blow doesn’t mention other categories of gun users: the child who gets hold of a parent’s gun and fires it by accident or in play, for instance, or the adult who is neither violently insane nor criminally inclined but who – because of anger-management issues or too much alcohol – momentarily loses control and fires his weapon. Or the teenager who ends his personal pain by turning a gun on himself. Since the Navy Yard shooting, much of the media commentary has focused on mental illness. Certainly this country needs to give much more attention to mental health – not just because a small minority of people afflicted with mental illness become violent, but because too many people suffer from it and we need much more research and much more affordable treatment. As important as that issue is, though, narrowing the discussion to mental illness diverts our attention from the broader problem. And that is the lack of adequate gun-control laws. As Blow says, there are simply too many guns in this country. The resulting violence is a terrible public health menace. We know what we should do about it. But we have let gun manufacturers, the NRA, and an exaggerated fear of crime paralyze us into inaction. In his Times article, Blow notes a troubling change in the United States: the reason people say they own a gun. According to a Pew Research Center poll, Blow says, hunting is no longer the main reason for gun ownership. It’s self protection. Many gun owners have convinced themselves that they are not
Narrowing the discussion to mental illness diverts our attention from the real problem: the lack of adequate gun-control laws.”

safe in their own homes unless they own a gun – and that if they carry guns wherever they go, they’ll be able to step in and prevent tragedies like the ones in Aurora, Colorado. And Newtown, Connecticut. And Washington, DC. And gun-rights radicals go after legislators who support even the mildest restrictions on gun ownership. A tragedy like the Washington Navy Yard shootings “ought to be a shock to us all as a nation and as a people,” President Obama said in his tribute to the Navy Yard victims on Sunday. “It ought to obsess us. It ought to lead to some sort of transformation. That’s what happened in other countries when they experienced similar tragedies.” But, he said, “sometimes I fear there’s a creeping resignation that these tragedies are just somehow the way it is, that this is somehow the new normal.” “No other advanced nation endures this kind of violence – none,” said Obama. “Here in America, the murder rate is three times what it is in other developed nations. The murder rate with guns is 10 times what it is in other developed nations. And there is nothing inevitable about it. It comes about because of decisions we make or fail to make. And it falls upon us to make it different.” So far, though, we haven’t developed the will to make it different. “Our hearts are broken – again,” said Obama. “And we care so deeply about these families. But the question is, do we care enough?” Apparently not. And at this point, I can’t imagine that we ever will. If the slaughter of 20 little children in a Connecticut elementary school last year didn’t spur us to action, I can’t imagine what will.

Ministers intervene for Hardaway
The United Christian Leadership Ministry is coming to Brenda Hardaway’s defense. Hardaway was arrested and charged after a hostile encounter with a Rochester police officer last month. She was subsequently indicted by a grand injury on six charges, including two felonies. The UCLM, a coalition of local ministers, says it will file a judicial complaint against State Supreme Court Justice Francis Affronti for raising Hardaway’s bail. The group also wants City Council to investigate the incident, which went viral in a YouTube video and shows an RPD officer striking Hardaway in the head, and has started a petition for a US Department of Justice investigation.
COMIDA board’s busy day
The Monroe County Industrial Development Agency board approved incentives for two E. J. Del Monte Corp. hotel projects, for an expansion at the Genesee brewery, and for Fee Brothers to add more warehouse space. One of the Del Monte hotels is in Greece, the other will
be part of College Town on Mt. Hope Avenue. The COMIDA board also approved incentives for the expansion of a multi-use building in a Greece office park and for NOHMS Technology, a lithium sulfur battery technology development company in Eastman Business Park.
EPA proposes power plant rules
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency proposed regulations that would rein in carbon emissions from new power plants, via the Clean Air Act. In a press release, EPA also said it’ll start working with state, tribal, local government, industry, and labor officials, as well as nonprofits to establish carbon pollution standards for existing power plants. Congressional Republicans have vowed to fight the new standards.
City students will have fewer standardized tests to contend with this school year. Superintendent Bolgen Vargas and Rochester Teachers Association president Adam Urbanski reached an agreement to eliminate most locally created tests. State-mandated tests are still required.

POLITICS | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO
The slavery effect White Southerners living in the former Cotton Belt are more likely to have negative attitudes toward African Americans than other Southerners, according to a new University of Rochester study. And they are more likely to be Republican and to express opposition to social and economic justice policies such as affirmative action, the study says. Researchers Avidit Acharya, Matthew Blackwell, and Maya Sen say that the study provides quantitative evidence of the longlasting effects of slavery on political attitudes in the South.
The research doesn’t suggest that slavery is the root cause of racism in contemporary America. But it does show that there is a link between the cotton plantation economy of the Old South — and its reliance on slave labor — and stronger racial bias in the region. And the repression of black Americans after emancipation encouraged the persistence of these attitudes. The researchers conducted a county-by-county analysis of census data and opinion surveys of more than 39,000 Southern whites. The “slavery effect” accounts for up to a 15
percent difference in political parties. About 30 percent of whites in former plantation areas identify as Democrats, compared to 40 percent to 45 percent in counties where slaves were less than 3 percent of the population. The South, in political terms, might look similar to the North if it hadn’t been for the South’s dependence on slavery, according to the study. The study also showed that there was a correlation between racial violence and economics in the Cotton Belt. Post-slavery lynching rates were highest in the Cotton Belt compared to other parts of the South.

GOP’s Latino love
Reign of error
Political parties at all levels, including in Monroe County, are reaching out to Latinos — an increasingly influential voting bloc. Over the summer, former New York State Assembly candidate Peterson Vazquez founded the Latino National Republican Coalition of Monroe County. It’s a local affiliate of the Latino National Republican Coalition, which aims to build GOP support among conservative Latinos and also focuses on getting them to run for office. Monroe County’s Latino population grew from 39,065 in 2000 to 54,005 in 2010, according to census data. The community’s voting power has grown as well, though it leans Democratic. But Vazquez says that Republican Party policies would benefit the Latino community and that their values often align. Some Latino voters may reject the GOP because of myths and misunderstandings about its positions, he says, and he wants to make sure that voters understand the Republican position on complex issues like the minimum wage. “It’s not that a Republican candidate, for example, doesn’t want to solve the issue of poverty,” Vazquez says. “We just have different views.” Vazquez says that he also sees an opportunity to increase the broader public’s
awareness and engagement in the electoral and political processes, as well as to increase understanding of the origins and positions Peterson Vazquez. PHOTO BY LARISSA COE of parties. Those efforts could be bipartisan and geared toward younger voters, he says, so when people cast a vote, they understand why they’re casting it. “We have to educate everybody, not just the Latino community,” Vazquez says. The Latino National Republican Coalition of Monroe County is holding a launch event at 8 a.m. on Friday, October 4, at Georgie’s Bakery and Cafe, 857 South Clinton Avenue. State Assembly member Peter Lopez, a Republican from the Village of Schoharie, will be the guest speaker and state Republican Committee chair Ed Cox is attending as a guest. Tickets are $15 and available at www.lnrcmc.org/donate.
It’s a gross understatement to say that Diane Ravitch is a lightning rod for politicians, teachers, and education reformers. Once a marshal of former President George W. Bush’s No Child Left Behind education law, she later rejected NCLB and the reform model it energized as completely wrong. | Charter school and education reform advocates say that Ravitch is nothing more than a postliberal hack whose main agenda is to defend unions and to protect incompetent teachers. | But Ravitch is hardly an excuse-maker for teachers and unions. She does, however, anger many by pointing to the country’s often lessthan-lucid understanding of concentrated poverty and institutional racism. And she dares to challenge the market approach to solving these problems. | Salon’s Sara Scribner interviewed Ravitch about her new book: “Reign of Error: The Hoax of the Privatization Movement and the Danger to America’s Public Schools.” In the interview, Ravitch talks about Teach for America’s teachers, education reform leader Michelle Rhee, and the new curriculum called Common Core. | Mostly what Ravitch describes is a government and business partnership that’s pulling apart public education in urban centers without addressing the source of failure in those communities: poverty.

Aided by August’s scorching heat, the sienna- and iodine-colored images of dismembered fetuses seem to sear into the sidewalk in the 100 block of University Avenue. Anti-abortion advocates, some carrying signs, others holding religious objects like crucifixes and rosary beads stand on both sides of the entrance to Planned Parenthood’s Rochester office. When a blue pickup truck pulls out of the lot, a protestor yells at the driver and passenger, “If you had an abortion, you just murdered your baby.” The startled driver says that they were only there for a medical exam and birth control. “From people who kill babies?” the protester says. “Why would you go to a place that kills babies for that?” Such exchanges — and much worse — are common outside Planned Parenthood’s facility. Almost every week, regardless of the weather or the time of year, as many as a dozen anti-abortion advocates gather at the facility’s borders to protest. Officials at Planned Parenthood say that they are used to the demonstrations. But it’s not just the facility and its clients that are affected. Neighbors, including some residents of the pricey Grove Place neighborhood, have to live with the demonstrations taking place right outside their doorways. The protests are also just blocks away from the YMCA and the Eastman School of Music. Customers of businesses from University Avenue to East Main Street regularly pass by the sometimes-volatile scene.

risk of viewing the disturbing photos. (The school is undergoing construction and is currently vacant.) Attitudes toward the anti-abortion protesters
from nearby residents and business owners range from extreme anger to indifference. Some say that they are exhausted by the protesters and don’t want to rile them. One resident who has lived in the Grove Place neighborhood for several years says she’s fearful that she might hit one of the protesters when she backs out of her driveway. Some residents say that while they don’t like the protests, they understand that the protestors are exercising their rights. One resident new to the neighborhood says that she doesn’t agree with the protestors’ views on abortion or women’s rights. They have right to protest, she says, but “What about our rights as homeowners? Don’t we have a say in this?” An owner of a newly built town house says that she was aware of the protests

before she bought the property. She and her husband moved from the suburbs to be near the city’s nightlife and downtown restaurants. She has no regrets about purchasing the town home, she says, but she might feel differently if she had small children. Grove Place resident Jim Martin says that the protests are part of the urban landscape, and that they aren’t as bad as they used to be “This might seem strange to someone used to living in the quiet of the suburbs, but this is the city,” he says. “Ninety-nine percent of them are not a problem. They’ve got a point of view they believe in fervently. Most of the time all they do is pray. Sometimes on Saturday mornings they’ll sing Ave Maria. How can you be upset about that?” Two local real estate brokers, who asked not to be identified, say that even though they’re not required to disclosure the situation, they might tell potential buyers to proceed cautiously. It might not be easy to re-sell the property, they say, even though Grove Place is considered a highly desirable neighborhood in the city. There are many options for buyers looking in the $200,000 to $300,000 price range, they say, that won’t come with protestors attached. Some businesses have also been adversely impacted by the protests. One employee of a business close to Planned Parenthood says that some customers with young children won’t come when the protesters are out because of the graphic images displayed.
Planned Parenthood officials say that they
have tried to be good neighbors, but that there’s only so much they can do. “We can do what is in our control,” says Planned Parenthood spokesperson Erin Cabral. “We do our best to communicate with our neighbors. If we know something is going to happen, we want to limit the chaos for them.” When the national anti-abortion group Operation Save America held a conference in Rochester in late July, officials at Planned Parenthood expected them to join forces with local anti-abortion protesters. So they alerted neighbors about the possibility for largerthan-usual protests, Cabral says. Planned Parenthood doesn’t encourage counter-protesting, she says. The main objective is to manage their business effectively, Cabral says, which includes providing a safe environment for clients and employees. But that has taken decades and has involved long and complicated legal responses. “They [protesters] are not allowed to block access, they can’t be in our driveway, and they can’t trespass,” Cabral says. During heated public demonstrations in the early 1990’s, some protesters tried to physically block access to Planned Parenthood. A federal district court injunction attempted to strike a balance between the protesters’ First Amendment rights and the rights of women and reproductive service providers in Western New York. The injunction created a buffer zone

PSYCHIC’S THYME preventing protesters from being any closer than 15 feet from doors, driveways, and walkways to Planned Parenthood’s Rochester office. But the injunction also allowed up to two protesters at a time, often referred to as “sidewalk counselors,” to access the sidewalks within the buffer zone. A new injunction issued in July 2000 removed all access to the sidewalk closer than 15 feet from Planned Parenthood or any other reproductive-related medical facility in Western New York. It remains in place today. But protestors are permitted to use a megaphone one day a week. On Thursdays they can be heard rallying against Planned Parenthood, and calling to people in the parking lot. They often peer through bushes along the fence as clients and others get in and out of their cars. Added to the scene are the drivers along University Avenue. Some honk their horns in support of the protesters, while others flip their middle finger and curse. “We’re not going away,” says longtime protester, Mary Jost. “We’re in a battle. We’re in a war to save lives.” Jost is the director of Focus Pregnancy Help Center, located just a few doors away from
Planned Parenthood. The nonprofit collects used children’s clothing, toys, books, and sometimes food and baby formula to donate to pregnant mothers.
Jost, like many of the protesters, is a devout Roman Catholic who says life begins at conception. Planned Parenthood kills human life, she says, while her organization confirms and celebrates human life. The focus center provides free pregnancy tests, Jost says, and counseled more than 1,000 pregnant women last year — trying to convince them to have their babies. “We provide emotional support,” she says. “If you have a problem, we’ll try to solve it.” Jost says that many mothers return to the focus center to show her their baby or toddler. They thank her for talking them out of the abortion, she says. “They show me the child that they almost didn’t have,” she says. “People don’t realize that when you have an abortion, you kill generations of people. And they would be members of your own family.” Jost is not apologetic for the disruption that the demonstrations may cause nearby residents and businesses. She says she wouldn’t want continuous demonstrations outside her home or business, but “I would never live near a place that performs abortions.”

THE PARK AND RESURRECTION

ochester scored a win a couple of years ago when New Jerseybased Natcore Technologies moved its solar cell research and development work to Eastman Business Park. Eastman, which is the former Kodak Park, beat out several competitors in the company’s nationwide site search. And recently, state and Natcore officials announced that the company plans to expand at the park. The company’s decisions show that Rochester is a serious contender when it comes to attracting and retaining promising tech companies. Natcore’s innovations in solar cell materials and production could eventually mean cheaper, more efficient cells. The company’s choices have also meant jobs for the region. Natcore has six research and development employees at Eastman Business Park and plans to hire another five or six employees soon, says Natcore President and CEO Chuck Provini. And all of the engineers, scientists, and research and development workers hired by the company have been Kodak employees. “One of the things that we noticed with the Kodak people that work with us, they’ve got a basic instinct to look at something that’s in the laboratory and if they cannot see a direct path to commercialization, they throw it out,” Provini says. “They focus on ‘What do we have? Do we see a direct path to commercialization? And let’s follow that path,’ which was a great help for us.” A few years ago, Kodak executives decided to remake the former Kodak Park into a 8 CITY

multi-tenant technology and industrial center; Natcore is one of approximately 50 businesses in the park. The executives realized that the park’s infrastructure, equipment, and expertise could attract companies in several growing industries, officials say. But efforts to remake the park stumbled last year when Kodak filed for bankruptcy. Now that Kodak has emerged from Chapter 11, company and economic development officials see renewed promise for the park. They say that it’s fertile ground for technological innovation — the kind that will lead to a new generation of American manufacturing and more jobs for Rochester. Currently, about 6,500 people work at Eastman Business Park. Initially, Natcore planned to work with Kodak to jointly manufacture flexible
solar cells in roll form, Provini says. The partnership seemed logical because of Kodak’s experience with coating flexible materials, he says. Photo and motion picture film is, after all, a base material layered with light-sensitive chemicals.
They ran into some obstacles, however, and the initial plan didn’t work out, though Provini says that Natcore is still pursuing the technology. But during that process, Natcore officials discovered a tremendous facility in Eastman Business Park, Provini says. The company now leases 20,000 square feet in a Kodakowned building in the park. Some 16,000 square feet to 17,000 square feet of Natcore’s facility is clean room space; comparable facilities would have cost the company about $30 million to build, Provini says. “We would never be in a position to build a clean room like that,” he says. “So what we have as a small company now is a wonderful, state-of-the-art R&D facility that we could never afford to have.” The company also has access to other specialized infrastructure, including a de-ionized water supply, steam, and toxic waste disposal infrastructure. And the facility is equipped with important basics, like phone lines. The result: the company has been able to focus on its research and development work, Provini says. The money that it would have had to spend outfitting a facility instead goes into buying tools and equipment, he says, and hiring. Kodak Park, as many still call it, has long been a vital part of the local economy. It’s been a place for generations of Rochesterians to find jobs — though gone
are the days when you could walk from your high school graduation and into a wellpaying job at the park. The jobs now tend to be more specialized. Workers at Kodak and the park’s other companies bring home $550 million a year in wages. And the park also pumps millions of property tax dollars into the Rochester, Greece, and Monroe County governments. The 16-million-square-foot complex starts in the City of Rochester at the intersection of Lake Avenue and West Ridge Road. Some local economic development officials call it a megasite, and the park’s marketing materials refer to it as “a city within a city.” When Kodak opened the site to outside tenants, the company also rebranded the park as Eastman Business Park. The idea was born out of necessity, officials say, since the shrinking company had increasing amounts of vacant space, even after demolishing approximately 6 million square feet of buildings. Kodak occupies 9 million square feet in Eastman Business Park, and the park has between 1 million and 1.5 million square feet of vacant space and approximately 150 acres to 175 acres of developable land, says Michael Alt, director of Eastman Business Park. Some park property has been sold off, including a 625,000 square foot building to LiDestri Foods in 2009. The company operates a manufacturing and product development facility there.
“I THINK CERTAINLY WE’RE MOVING AWAY FROM CRISIS MODE AND WE’RE NOW IN GROWTH MODE.” MARK PETERSON, PRESIDENT AND CEO OF GREATER ROCHESTER ENTERPRISE
Eastman Business Park Director Michael Alt.
Other space has been leased to companies like UniPixel. The company makes touch screen sensors in the same building where Kodak makes its motion picture film. Alt says he expects that UniPixel’s production will grow as Kodak’s film production declines, which means that over time, the building’s use will change. The uncertainty caused by Kodak’s bankruptcy was an obstacle to progress at the park, Alt says, because it kept some potential tenants from committing. But the company’s emergence from bankruptcy last month resolved several of those issues, he says. In a settlement with New York State, Kodak agreed to set aside $49 million for an environmental trust fund. In return, the state said it wouldn’t hold any tenant other than Kodak liable for historic pollution at the site. The bankruptcy court also gave Kodak the all-clear to sell the park’s complex utilities system to Illinois-based Recycled Energy Development. “I think certainly we’re moving away from crisis mode and we’re now in growth mode,” says Mark Peterson, president and CEO of Greater Rochester Enterprise. But at least one issue remains unsettled:
Who will own Eastman Business Park in the future? And that question doesn’t have a simple answer. As part of the company’s agreement with the state, Kodak committed to
maintaining a substantial presence at the park. But Kodak is now a company focused on providing printing and technology services to other companies. It’s not a real estate developer or broker. Alt says that Kodak doesn’t have a clear plan to remain a landlord or become a tenant. Rather, it plans to “play the opportunities that become available to us,” he says, regarding ownership of the park. Company officials are working with local leaders, visiting other industrial sites, and networking with industrial developers, Alt says. “Everybody is interested in creating the best site in the Northeast, if not the country,” he says. “We’re really in uncharted waters. There’s no roadmap that you can take from other facilities this size because it’s just such a unique facility.” But local economic development officials are more direct. A couple of days before the Finger Lakes Regional Economic Development Council’s August meeting, Kodak received court approval of its bankruptcy exit plan. During the meeting, council co-chair and University of Rochester President Joel Seligman said that the council’s vision of transferring the park to a new developer is “now achievable.” The council’s purpose is to guide state economic development investments and incentives for the region. (Seligman was a member of Kodak’s Board of Directors until the company emerged from bankruptcy.) Greater Rochester Enterprise’s Peterson, who also serves on the regional council, says that the ideal arrangement is to sell the park to a single developer who would make money by promoting the park and bringing in new tenants. Some companies, developers, and investment firms specialize in industrial parks and are experts at running them, he says. And a dedicated, deep-pocketed developer would be able to continue investing in park infrastructure such as roads and railroad spurs, he says.
“There’s no doubt that the path going forward is more heavy utilization of the Eastman Business Park and more businesses in it,” Peterson says. “The question is, is it going to be done piecemeal or wholesale in one unit? And the market’s going to dictate what’s actually going to happen.” For now, Kodak and economic development officials have identified and targeted three
industries that they want to attract to the park: • Functional films, which are thin, flexible materials coated to make things like circuits, touch screen sensors, or battery components. Eastman Business Park has a commercialization center for the films and is home to several businesses built around the technology. • Energy storage, or in layman’s terms, batteries, fuel cells, and solar technologies. Natcore falls into this category, as does NOHMS, a company developing advanced lithium battery technology. The park is also home to a battery commercialization center operated by NY-BEST, a consortium of businesses, utilities, universities, and government officials focused on advancing energy storage technology. • Biomaterials, a category that includes biochemical companies like the DuPont subsidiary Genencor; Novomer, which makes polymers out of carbon dioxide waste streams; and biofuels operations like Sweetwater Energy, which is led by Paetec founder Arunas Chesonis. (All of those companies have a presence in the park.) Those three industries build on Kodak’s history as essentially a materials science and chemical manufacturing company. They use the same lab, manufacturing, and industrial equipment and infrastructure that Kodak traditionally used. Businesses at the park are essentially taking Kodak’s processes and adapting them for their needs, Peterson says. And officials say that by offering companies access to people with knowledge of the equipment and the commercialization process, they can attract and retain high-tech companies.
Greater Rochester Enterprise President and CEO Mark Peterson.
And by locating in the Rochester area, the companies can also draw on the experience and knowledge of former Xerox and Bausch and Lomb employees, as well as experts at the University of Rochester and Rochester Institute of Technology. “If we were just offering space, we probably couldn’t compete,” says Alt, the park’s director. “We want to offer the ability to solve your technical problem and then give you one of the best places in the US to do your manufacturing.” For the third consecutive year, the Finger Lakes Regional Economic Development Council has listed the park as its top priority, which means that the park and its tenants get some welcome extra attention from the state. That can include assistance with regulatory compliance or tax credits for companies moving into the park. In a statement issued in response to several questions, Empire State Development officials say that they want to attract research, development, and advanced manufacturing facilities, including start-ups and large companies to Eastman Business Park. With the company’s bankruptcy resolved, state and local officials can put their efforts toward attracting new businesses, the statement says. “This will require a tremendous amount of focus, creativity, and effort,” say ESD officials.

The sweet spot [ CHOW HOUND ] BY DAYNA PAPALEO
If you’re not already happy when you cross the threshold, walking into a bakery can instantly put a person in a good mood. The atmosphere is typically homey, the smells are always heavenly, and the display cases are packed with vivid nibbles that are almost too pretty to eat — but there ain’t no way you’re leaving emptyhanded. Paternico’s Bakery is one of those places: the sun streaming in on a recent early autumn afternoon bathed the welcoming space in a golden glow, and oodles of Italian cookies, many with those irresistibly swirly tufts of colorful frosting, competed for my attention with such offerings as key lime pie, red velvet cake, and pumpkin-pecan cheesecake, as well as cannoli shells patiently waiting to be filled with pastry cream or sweetened ricotta. Maybe you’ve indulged in some goodies from Paternico’s before; Steve and Sheri Paternico operated the business out of their home for 18 years, selling through word of mouth and at the Rochester Public Market before planting roots at their new North Winton Road location. So why take the plunge now? “I don’t know; maybe I’m a little crazy,” Steve says with a laugh. Though it’s fair to assume that
mixing butter, sugar, flour, and eggs is a bit less stressful than the law-enforcement career from which he retired in 2011. The goods at Paternico’s are made from family recipes that have been perfected over the years, along with new formulas that the Paternicos have tweaked to their tastes. Steve and Sheri are hoping to get back to the Public Market soon, but before then Paternico’s will celebrate its grand opening on Saturday, September 28, with deals and samples. And anyone hoping to learn a few of Paternico’s sweet secrets might be interested in Steve’s class at Vella Culinary Center on Monday, November 11; visit rochesterculinary.com for the details. Paternico’s Bakery is located at 272 N. Winton Road. It is open Tuesday-Friday 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; and Saturday-Sunday 9 a.m.-3 p.m. For more information, call 288-1199, or visit paternicosbakery.com.
The interior of the newly opened Shui Asian Fusion (236 University Ave., 546-6525)
shows absolutely no trace of the seemingly bombed-out KFC that once preceded it; it’s a charming, tranquil spot that provides a fitting
backdrop for Shui’s pan-Asian menu, one with a decided emphasis on Thai flavors. You’ll find an interesting selection of starters (I particularly dug the khao neow gai [$5.50], which stuffed chicken and vegetables in sticky rice then wrapped everything in banana leaf) along with a roster of classic dishes like papaya salad, panang curry, pad thai, and much more. There are also a few traditional Chinese restaurant options that allow you to choose the sauce and the protein, including tofu, and weekday lunch deals that won’t break the bank. Want more information? Visit Shui Asian Fusion’s Facebook page.
Saturday, October 5, the Good Food Collective will host A Good Night, a celebration of local food that will raise money for GFC’s social advocacy projects, which help to make fresh produce available to those who might not be able to afford it otherwise. The event, to be held from 6-10 p.m. in the Zeppa Auditorium at 315 Gregory St., will feature finger foods with local beer and wine pairings, a cash bar, and live music. Tickets are $25 (kids under 12 free); visit thegoodfoodcollective.com to learn more.
At this rate, by 2015 we will each have our very own self-serve frozen yogurt shop. Until then, however, we’re gonna have to share new places like the national chain Yogurt City (3300 West Henrietta Road, 413-1552, yogurtcity.com), and Yotini Frozen Yogurt Bar (2105 Five Mile Line Road, Penfield, 6625327), locally owned by the Vacchetto family and found on both Facebook and Twitter. They’re carving shawarma over at Sultan Lebanese Restaurant & Bakery, now open at 1659 Mount Hope Ave. Besides spitroasted meats, Sultan offers vegetarianfriendly favorites like falafel and tabouli, as well as manakeesh, pizza’s Levantine cousin. Call 241-0082 for more information.

Intronaut performed Sunday, September 22, at Montage Music Hall. PHOTO PROVIDED
The first time I saw The Fevertones was during an impromptu set at the Rochester Public Market, so it was high time that I caught the band at a proper gig. Singersongwriter Emma Lane opened up Friday night’s show at the Bug Jar with a solo acoustic set. I couldn’t tell if Emma Lane was one word or two, but the Hilton native was charismatic with stars in her eyes as she announced plans to record in Nashville. After a quick changeover, The Fevertones took the stage and dug deep into its dustbowl-era songbook of original tunes. By the time the quartet rolled into its third and fourth numbers, the growing crowd was feeling it too. This young outfit (sans drummer) was spirited and snappy, comprised of upright bass, fiddle, harmonica, guitar, and trombone. These kids sure have old souls. White Woods rounded out the night. The triple ax jingle jangle of this alt-country quintet had the audience dancing in harmony with its barnburner “I’m Your Man.” I caught folk singers Lucy Kaplansky and Lisa Bigwood at Café Veritas on
Saturday. Lisa Bigwood’s performance was enjoyable and she had great chemistry with the packed house. Manhattan-resident Lucy Kaplansky mixed originals with deeply personal covers of artists, including Townes Van Zandt. Kaplansky owned the night with songs like Eliza Gilkyson’s piano tune “Sanctuary.” Both ladies left me feeling serenaded, made only better by the warm and peaceful ambience of Café Veritas. On Sunday night my earplugs and I headed to Montage Music Hall to check out Los Angeles-based prog metal outfit Intronaut. I accidentally stumbled upon the group’s album “Habitual Levitations” a couple of weeks ago and dug it. This was an early show and I caught the band midset, but from what I saw, Intronaut was flawless. The back end of Danny Walker (drums) and Joe Lester (bass) crushed it. There never seemed to be a moment of silence; the space between songs was filled with smoke and noise. Intronaut shifted gears between stormy and ethereal so many times that I felt dazed. It left me satisfied.

BLUES | BUDDY GUY
Chicago blues pioneer Buddy Guy is 77 years old and still on stage schoolin’ fools and kickin’ ass. He’s a legend that lives up to the title. The call-and-response style he has with his guitar is provocative and evocative. The man will make you move. Turned on by Muddy Waters, Guy landed in Chicago in 1957 and fell in with cats like Magic Sam and Otis Rush. Stevie Ray Vaughan and Eric Clapton are clearly disciples. The Grammy Award-winning Guy was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005. Not bad for a poor kid from Louisiana who got his start on a two-string diddley bow.

ROCK | RED JUMPSUIT APPARATUS
Despite parting ways with its record label, Florida-based Red Jumpsuit Apparatus continues to release material and is still going strong in part due to its social-media outreach. The quintet flirts with Christian themes, infuses pop to hardcore music, and packs an emotive lyrical punch that is common among groups of its ilk. The result has earned Red Jumpsuit Apparatus more than 1 million likes on Facebook in addition to a coveted Top 40 hit (“Face Down”). Lead singer Ronnie Winter’s screams will make you smile as the rest of this model modern-day rock band creates cohesive and raucous energy. With War Generation, Eversay, The September Campaign, Battle Beneath, and FORTE.

POP/ROCK | DARWIN DEEZ
For Darwin Deez, a sense of whimsy goes a long way. Frontman Darwin Smith in particular is but one part of the quirky image the band is striving for/achieves. Smith’s hipster perm, hippie headband, and astoundingly long neck above which that curly mop hangs all serve to convey an indelible image that meshes well with the band’s alarmingly catchy pop roots. It’s a wonder songs from the band’s eponymous debut never became more ubiquitous than being featured in a few random commercials. On the band’s latest effort, 2013’s “Songs For Imaginative People,” Deez takes a step forward, softening a bit of the catchiness with altered song structures and dimmer lyrics to obtain a more mature sound, while retaining the jangly guitars early fans are sure to recognize. Darwin Deez plays Saturday, September 28, 5 p.m. at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. Skirts and The Big are also slated to perform. $10-$15. Bugjar.com. — BY DAVE LABARGE La Selva.

More than filling the gap Get to know the guest conductors for the RPO’s 2013-14 season [ FEATURE ] BY PALOMA CAPANNA
When I first realized that the 2013-2014 season for the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra would consist of 13 guest conductors plus one concert with Conductor Laureate Christopher Seaman (March 6 & 8), I worried about plunging ticket sales and musicians without an anchor. But then I got to thinking about the opportunity this would create for the audience to sample leading conductors of the world, and for the musicians to anchor into each other while welcoming the guest conductors. It was with these two, completely different thoughts in mind that I undertook to interview the entire line-up of guest conductors in a three-day marathon. My reaction upon finishing the last interview is to be sure to tell you that — even if you never have before — it’s time for you to buy season tickets. There isn’t a single RPO concert this season that you will want to miss. What can I say about the 13 guest conductors as a whole? They are all men. They are all self-confident and they directly answered every question I asked. They all have a clear sense of how they want to approach the podium, the musicians, and the audience. They are all well-credentialed, and their resumes include multiple spots as guest conductors. It is going to be a thrilling season, and I hope that you will join City Newspaper as we cover the RPO for the 2013-2014 season (look for reviews of each main-season classical concert at rochestercitynewspaper.com). If there is any one thing that each and every guest conductor had to say, it was high praise for the RPO and its ability to tackle some of the greatest symphonic works ever written.
20 CITY SEPTEMBER 25 - OCTOBER 1, 2013
Guest conductor: Jun Märkl WEBSITE: JUNMARKL.COM BORN: MUNICH, GERMANY CURRENT HOME: FLORENCE, ITALY RPO CONCERT DATES: SEPTEMBER 26 & 28 PROGRAM: MAHLER, MENDELSSOHN, AARON JAY KERNIS (B. 1960) GUEST SOLOIST: JENNIFER KOH, VIOLIN
“It was the Americans who first really appreciated Mahler,” says conductor Jun Märkl. “It took a long time before he became as popular in Europe as he was in the States.” Märkl describes Mahler as being “clear in colors, vivid, extremely emotional” and using “stories as the background for his compositions.” He adds, “Maybe too much so, but he’s dealing with feelings.” As to the upcoming performance of the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E-minor, Märkl calls it “one of the most beautiful violin concertos ever written.” “It is very classical in form,” he says. “It has an early romantic feeling. It is a tender, sophisticated piece that the audience will love.” Märkl prepares not only by studying scores; he has been to Mendelssohn’s house to “soak up” the tradition and style, and to reflect upon the composer’s Jewish heritage and its role in placing him “on the outside of his homelands in Germany/Austria.” And then, Märkl pulls his thoughts through the filter of his own life, consciously, of being German-Japanese and being “a little outside society” and “having to find my own way.” Märkl adds, “The outsiders see it better than those on the inside. And, even though they long to belong, they refuse to belong 100 percent.” It is not only core Germanic repertoire through which Märkl exhibits his strengths. He is also attracted to Debussy, Ravel, and Messiaen, having served as music director for the Orchestre National de Lyon (2005-2011), recorded a nine-CD set of the complete orchestral works of Debussy, and received the prestigious Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres from the French Ministry of Culture.
Guest conductor: Bernhard Gueller WEBSITE: GUELLER.COM BORN: STUTTGART, GERMANY CURRENT HOME: HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA, CANADA RPO CONCERT DATES: OCTOBER 17 & 19 PROGRAM: BRAHMS, BARTÓK, JENNIFER HIGDON GUEST SOLOIST: JONATHAN BISS, PIANO
Conductor Bernhard Gueller comes to the RPO to conduct a program chosen by the orchestra, which he calls “quite substantial,” “difficult,” and “big.” “I’m quite interested to see how your audience will react,” says Gueller. “How conservative is your audience?” It is an appropriate question, and the same one I had the first time I walked into the Eastman Theater to review a concert with Hungarian composer Béla Bartók on the program. Gueller calmly says, “It’s not a piece one has to be afraid of. It is tonal, wonderful, very melodic, rhythmically very interesting. It is based on Hungarian melodies and folk tunes.” Gueller started his musical career as a cellist and played in orchestras for more than 20 years before changing to conducting. He enjoys the connections he makes through youth orchestras. “It’s very fresh,” says Gueller. “They are hungry to learn. I can remember, myself, how exciting it was the first time I played the Beethoven 5th Symphony.” During his conducting career, Gueller has been music director/principal conductor of the Nuremberg Symphony Orchestra (Germany) and the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra (South Africa). Gueller led the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra on behalf of the continent of Africa in the 16th International Festival of Music in the Canary Islands.

MANUEL DE FALLA
Larry Rachleff really makes the case for composer Samuel Barber’s “The School for Scandal” as being one of the century’s “most significant compositions.” He points out that it’s a “very early piece” for Barber, written when he was only 21 years old, and yet it already reflected Barber’s “compositional craft and language.” Rachleff says Barber’s work is “all-American,” reflecting “the 1930’s, the jazz influence, the mix of incisive rhythms and colorful orchestrations.” Rachleff describes Copland’s “Appalachian Spring” as “25 minutes of the most powerful connection.” He expanded on why we share that experience, listening to Copland’s music, comparing it to Russians hearing Rachmaninoff or Germans hearing Bruckner. “With Copland, we know where he walked in Tanglewood in the summer and what jazz clubs he went to in Manhattan. Copland, Ives, Barber, and Gershwin were all soulful composers who were richly connected to the American experience.” “This kind of program requires an enormous range from the orchestra,” says Rachleff, “the flavors of Copland, the rhythms of Barber, the style of Piazzolla, and the wild aroma of Falla.” As a champion of public-music education, Rachleff sees that responsibility continuing into our job as the public to attend concerts. “Yes, there are war horses,” says Rachleff, “but we must find a way to be motivated by our own unique connection to the dramatic message of the piece.”
From Austria to Julliard, Columbia, and Yale, and then on to more than 100 orchestras on five continents, conductor Christoph Campestrini looks for the depth in every work. “It is important to know it stylistically and it is equally important to feel it; you must juxtapose both,” says Campestrini. With the RPO, he’ll take on an interesting program that includes a work written by Stravinsky, inspired by Tchaikovsky, and a major work of Tchaikovsky. “This is a double bonus,” says Campestrini. “You have a great composer of the 20th century, looking at a great composer of the 19th century, being performed in the 21st century. It’s all layers. It’s all part of one great tradition and cultural heritage of gorgeous musical and artistic concepts.” Campestrini finds it “most gratifying to reach a communion of emotion as one with the musicians and to communicate that to the audience” and he credits the RPO with the “innate ability to plunge into the emotional message right away, paired with the technical ability to execute the work.” He previously conducted the RPO in 2012.
Although conductor Junichi Hirokami was not available to participate in these interviews by press time, we can take from his website his studies of conducting, piano, musicology, and viola at the Tokyo College of Music. He also had the opportunity to collaborate with legendary Russian pianist Vladimir Ashkenazy, including a tour of Japan with the NHK Symphony Orchestra (Tokyo). Since 2008, he has been the chief conductor of the Kyoto Symphony Orchestra (Japan).
Nir Kabaretti is a man of the world. He was born in Israel, studied in Vienna, has lived also in Madrid, calls Florence his current home, and is based part-time in the United States, where he is the music & artistic director of the Santa Barbara Symphony. He speaks Hebrew, German, Spanish, Italian, and English. Kabaretti calls it “fulfilling” to live his life on three continents every year. Kabaretti considers it a “plus” to “speak the language,” “to read in the way they wrote it,” and to “get into the head” of the composers. He considers this true whether he is interpreting the composition or he is selecting works for audiences. “What we would program in the United States is probably not what we would program in Tokyo or Argentina,” he says. “It helps to know the milieu where you are working.” Kabaretti conducted the RPO as part of the “Summer Serenades at Hochstein” series in 2012. He considers the RPO “up to any challenge.” Kabaretti says he is “extremely excited” to prepare musically and mentally for the upcoming performance, and he hopes to work with the RPO to bring the audience a performance that is “relevant to today, specific to the composer, and unique in its delivery.” continues on page 26

FESTIVAL | APPLEUMPKIN FESTIVAL
Unfortunately, appleumpkins are not a real thing (I know, this crushed my hopes and dreams, too). Regular old apples and pumpkins will have to sate our fall produce needs. But the AppleUmpkin Festival IS real, and is taking place this Saturday and Sunday, September 28-29, in the historic Gaslight Village in Wyoming, NY. With plenty of vendors, live music and dance performances, and a good old-fashioned baking contest, this is a great opportunity to get away from the normalcies of city/suburb life and step into an old-timey environment, plus to celebrate those aforementioned fall treats. The festival runs 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, and it’s free to get in. Check out appleumpkin.com for more information. — BY TREVOR LEWIS Through Oct 25.

Wrinkles in time “Transmutations: Photographic Works by Carl Chiarenza” THROUGH OCTOBER 12 AXOM GALLERY, 176 ANDERSON AVE., SUITE 303 232-6030 X23, AXOMGALLERY.COM WEDNESDAY-SATURDAY NOON-5 P.M., AND BY APPOINTMENT | FREE AND SPECTRUM GALLERY AT LUMIERE PHOTO, 100 COLLEGE AVE. 461-4447, SPECTRUMGALLERYROC.COM TUESDAY-FRIDAY 10 A.M.-6 P.M., SATURDAY 10 A.M.-2 P.M. | FREE [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY
Of the transmission of experience through art, poet Robert Frost wrote, “No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader. No surprise in the writer, no surprise in the reader.” Though renowned photographer Carl Chiarenza creates abstract works that are purposefully open to viewers’ interpretations, the crystallized emotional experience of the artist is present in his works and resonates powerfully within each image. In honor of Chiarenza’s 78th birthday, Axom Gallery and Spectrum Gallery are co-presenting a look at his prolific oeuvre, the result of decades of playing amid the environs of his subconscious mind. “Transmutations” is a selection of Chiarenza’s work pulled from a body curated by photography historian Robert Hirsch for an exhibition that took place at the University of Buffalo’s Anderson Gallery in late 2012. The show chronicles Chiarenza’s photography since the pivotal year of 1979, when he shifted from documentary-style photography to creating photographic images entirely within a studio setting, creating collages from scraps of various materials and photographing them with Polaroid-type film. In fact, the last image that Chiarenza shot outdoors, “Rockland 2,” is included in the Spectrum Gallery portion of the show. When the artist was teaching a workshop in Maine in 1979, he spotted and snapped a few pieces of warped plywood. Though his artistic approach changed drastically after he made this image, his familiar aesthetic sensibility is present in the serpentine curve of the boards, the bright highlights along the edges of the textured wood, and the lush, dark abyss tugging at the viewer’s focus. Chiarenza’s images are rife with stark chiaroscuro and a rich scale of silvers set
against a void, hinting at moonscapes or landscapes painted by moonlight. What the artist accomplishes by catching light in the crinkles and folds of layered cast-off materials is astounding. The photographs suggest tangible elements of this
world — at Spectrum Gallery, in “Woods 529,” delicately rendered trunks and branches emerge glittering from manifold creases in a papery surface, revealing the artist’s mastery of generating forms from tiny piles of rubbish. At Axom Gallery, a crisp envelope lip in one work “Untitled #126” is part of Carl Chiarenza’s photograph show now on becomes the clear sky display at both Axom Gallery and Spectrum Gallery.

EXHIBITION | “ALIENS AND ANDROIDS”
We’ve all asked the question at some point: are we alone? Then somebody near you says “I’m right here,” and you give an angry rebuttal on how you were talking about alien life. If the concept piques your interest, the Rochester Museum and Science Center has the exhibit you’ve been waiting for. “Alien Worlds and Androids” explores if we are truly alone by showcasing the works of scientists looking for alien life. It also examines the robots and androids that are so popular in Hollywood films, and some will even be there in the form of full-size models (C-3PO and Iron Manm just to name a few). The exhibition opens Friday, September 27, is free with regular museum admission, and will run through December 22, so there are plenty of opportunities to make it. The RMSC is located at 657 East Ave. Go to rmsc.org for more information. — BY TREVOR LEWIS Walking on Sunshine. 9:30 a.m. Ontario Beach Park, 4799 Lake Ave. Form a team and raise money and awareness for Mary Cariola Children’s Center 271-2897 x1610. lrosenbaum@ marycariola.org. crowdrise.com/ walkingonsunshine.

Guest conductor James Feddeck will come into Rochester to conduct the “Magnificat” by J.S. Bach. What else could you need to know? Some works are simply so seminal in the history of Western classical music as to define the conductor. Feddeck, however, identified his challenge as delivering an audience experience in the modern concert hall that is as intimate as it would have been when originally presented in a church or royal court setting. Feddeck says, “I am facilitating the orchestra and singers to come together to create something greater than either by itself. There is an extraordinary feeling that comes from a true collaborative process for a performance like this — a unification of forces that brings this about.” Feddeck is a sponge, having pursued multiple majors at Oberlin and “loving all music and styles and periods and performing them all.” On this same program, Feddeck will take to the harpsichord for the J.S. Bach Orchestra Suite No. 3 in D Major, so that the performance will be in the way it was conceived. “The evolution of a conductor as being at the front of an orchestra was a rather late concept,” says Feddeck. “At the time this music was written, the conductor was not that figurehead leading at the front; he was, instead, leading from within.”
Hugh Wolff was born in Paris, spent his primary school years in London, was Harvard educated, and did graduate studies in Paris. He started as a composer and a pianist, and in college he progressed into conducting when students, eager to put on concerts, needed “somebody waving his arms.” Wolff talks of theory, history, and composition, and he finds studying orchestral scores to be “fascinating” in their layers and details. Although Wolff has spent more than 30 years primarily as a conductor, he points out he doesn’t play an orchestral instrument. He has, however, sung in all the big choral pieces, including the Beethoven Ninth Symphony, which he will be conducting in the upcoming RPO program. He is also a pianist and a composer. Wolff’s approach will be to send the parts ahead to the RPO and the Rochester Oratorio Society, with his notes, to save time. “With an orchestra as good as the RPO, no part will be challenging,” says Wolff, who engages in guest conducting all over the world, traveling from week to week.
GUEST SOLOIST: PHILIPPE QUINT, VIOLIN
“I’m French and the RPO asked me to build a program with my roots,” says conductor Fabien Gabel about his upcoming concert with the RPO, titled “An Evening in Paris” and featuring works of Debussy, Ravel, SaintSaens, and…Stravinsky? “Stravinsky lived in Paris,” Gabel says. He had his biggest successes there. He composed his masterworks in Paris — ‘Le Sacred u printemps’ (‘Rite of Spring’), Petrushka, ‘L’oiseau de feu’ (‘The Firebird’).” It is the “Firebird Suite” that will be on the RPO program. Gabel spoke to rehearsals as being a critical part of his strategic approach to concerts in the role of guest conductor. “Rehearsals can define it,” he says. “It is not possible to play the same piece the same way twice. Everywhere I go, even if I have already conducted a piece several times, I treat it as if it were my first.” And, yet, Gabel suggests that giving the musicians “some freedom” is precisely what can bring success to the performance of a well-known piece like Debussy’s “Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune” (“Afternoon of a Faun”). Gabel says, “You can’t give a nice beginning to this work with a gesture. It has to be organic. It is a very difficult part for the flutist to play, and I have to let her start and find her inspiration.”
“Ellington is in a class by himself,” says Michael Morgan, who will be conducting the RPO in an all-American concert. “It takes some extra musicians. It takes some extra expense. But ‘Harlem’ is a great work by Ellington and it is basically unknown.” Even Morgan apparently conducted a number of other Ellington pieces before he discovered “Harlem,” but he has fought for the budget to put on this work ever since. Morgan feels similarly about the Gershwin piano concerto that is on the program. “It is a masterpiece, but it doesn’t get its due,” says Morgan. “Gershwin has a reputation for being a pops composer, even after he wrote the opera ‘Porgy and Bess.’ He had a very hard time being taken seriously.” The way Morgan talks about Ellington and Gershwin, you would think that every American would have a natural ability to perform works by American composers. “Certain styles, we hear and are around, and it’s like osmosis. An American orchestra is going to be well-suited for this program of American music.” You also have Price, who Morgan says was “a hero to everybody as a composer and an arranger of spirituals for orchestras and singers at a time when women barely had a voice.” And you have Schwantner, whose work puts great music behind the best speeches by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and others, “elevating both things to new heights,” he says. continues on page 30

performed poorly enough to be expelled, until his father enrolled him at Valley Forge Military Academy, of all places, which formed both his character and his literary ambitions. He later studied with the famous Whit Burnett and began sending short stories to several of the many magazines that published fiction back in the 1930’s, and hung around with a gang of writers and editors, chiefly A. E. Hotchner, one of the most prominent talking heads in the movie. Although some of his work was published, he sought above all to be accepted by The New Yorker, whose editors systematically rejected his submissions. His wealth enabled him to mingle with what was known as high society in those days, where he met and fell in love with the beautiful Oona O’Neill, daughter of Eugene O’Neill, who ultimately married Charlie Chaplin. He enlisted in the army in 1942 and served in the Battle of the Bulge, surviving 299 days in combat and consequently suffering a nervous breakdown. The experience of war, the personal encounter with a concentration camp, and his work in the denazification of post-war Germany, according to those who knew him, created his most famous character, Holden Caulfield of “Catcher,” and in a sense, created Salinger as well. All the people interviewed, especially those engaged with literature, admire the man, his work, and his extraordinary integrity, but most confess their own bafflement over his

“Ballin’ at the Graveyard” DIRECTED BY BASIL ANASTASSIOU AND PAUL KENTOFFIO OPENS FRIDAY AT THE LITTLE [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
self-exile and his silence. The personal reactions suggest another, not entirely surprising and not entirely attractive aspect of a writer obsessed with innocence and children — romantic attachments to young girls, the most famous of whom of course is the writer Joyce Maynard. The picture’s revelations include the fact of his amazing and quite illegal marriage in Germany to a young Nazi, whom he divorced a short time after bringing her to America. The delicious irony of The New Yorker repeatedly rejecting his stories several years before he became closely identified with the magazine indicates the not-uncommon obtuseness of editors. The utter foolishness of one publisher refusing “The Catcher in the Rye,” which almost immediately became a remarkable best seller, praised by critics everywhere, should comfort any writers experiencing the usual difficulty in finding a place for their work. “Salinger” provides a great deal of previously undisclosed information, which shows the diligence and creativity of its researchers; it also promises that the author stipulated that certain stories and novels, including the whole saga of his famous Glass family and a work on Buddhism, will appear on selected dates. The film may also introduce a major author to a new generation and confirms his place in American literature; it’s an important study of an important figure, who spoke to and for millions of readers (I am one of them).
With the release of Denis Villeneuve’s chilly, David Fincher-esque procedural “Prisoners,” this year’s Oscar season has officially begun. Boasting several award-worthy performances from its A-list stars, a twisty plot, gorgeous cinematography, and an epic length, the film seems like exactly the sort of thing the Academy loves to reward. Still, the dark, often unpleasant subject matter and tone of the film may end up scaring away voters when ballots come around. “Prisoners” is set in a blue-collar suburban Pennsylvania neighborhood (though, oddly, filmed in Georgia). As the film begins two families are getting together for Thanksgiving dinner, as is their tradition. Keller Dover (Hugh Jackman), his wife, Grace (Maria Bello, “A History of Violence”), and their teenage son and 6-year-old daughter walk down the block to the home of Franklin (Terrence Howard, “Lee Daniels’ The Butler”), Nancy (Viola

Davis, “The Help”), and their daughters. After dinner, the two youngest girls go outside to play, but never return. It isn’t long before the families panic and the police are involved, but the girls seem to have vanished without a trace. Detective Loki (Jake Gyllenhaal) is assigned to the case, and turns up a suspect, Alex (Paul Dano, “There Will Be Blood”), a mentally challenged young man who is found driving an old RV the girls were last seen playing near. But with insufficient evidence, the police are forced to turn him loose. Finding that the investigation isn’t moving quickly enough, and knowing that the longer the girls are missing, the less likely thy will be found alive, Keller takes it upon himself to get some answers. His desperation leads him to kidnap Alex and hold him hostage. As Loki continues his quest for the truth, Keller begins to brutally torture Alex for information about the whereabouts of his daughter. The script (which made it onto the Black List, an industry list of the best unproduced screenplays) does a good job filling out the complexities in a story that might otherwise have turned into another vigilante-justice genre exercise. Alex has exhibited just enough suspicious behavior to make it seem possible that he may be guilty. A father driven to extremes, Keller Dover is a showy role, and Jackman sinks his teeth in, tapping into some of that Wolverine berserker rage. It’s a performance that’s always threatening to go over the top, but somehow manages to never cross that line. Terrence Howard (providing the silenced conscience of the movie) and Viola Davis play secondary roles, but capably convey the moral dilemma their characters face as they eventually learn of Keller’s actions. Melissa Leo is also quite good in the crucial role of Alex’s protective mother. Villeneuve loads the film with an almost unbearable sense of dread. The constant tension makes for a thrilling, but exhausting viewing experience. “Prisoners” is not
without its problems. The first two thirds of the film are masterful, but when the film finally gets around to providing a solution to its central mystery, it doesn’t quite live up to the build-up that preceded it. The film is also long — more than two-and-a-half hours. I was always enthralled, but became more conscious of the length as the running time wore on… and on. Roger Deakins, the cinematographer behind “Skyfall” and nearly all of the Coen Brothers’ films, turns in typically masterful work. He makes the gray dreariness of the late-fall-into-winter setting somehow always look beautiful. Produced in Upstate New York, the
documentary “Ballin’ at the Graveyard” posits that every city has one particular basketball court that everyone wants to play on, and functions as a hub in the subculture of urban pickup basketball. The film focuses on one such court, in Albany’s Washington Park, known as the Graveyard. Director Basil Anastassiou, himself a frequent participant in the pick-up games that occur there, along with his co-director Paul Kentoffio, let us observe the players, allowing us to get a sense of the community that has been built up around the court. Some of these men have been playing ball there for decades. They demonstrate the complex rules of life at the Graveyard, including how to decide who’s got next and the fine art of trash-talking. We learn about some of the players’ lives off the court, but not until a self-contained segment late in the film that presents all of their backstories one after another. It’s an odd structural choice, and one that deprives the film of a central narrative thrust for the audience to latch onto. But “Ballin’ at the Graveyard” works as an effective, even moving portrait of a location and the strong personalities who inhabit it. The opening night showings of “Ballin’ at the Graveyard” on Friday will include a Q&A with the directors as well as several players from the film.

Conductor Michael Christie will be the one to take the RPO to Carnegie Hall next spring to perform Howard Hanson’s lyrical opera “Merry Mount.” But first, he’ll deliver it to the home crowd. Christie is from Buffalo. Hanson (1896-1981) was director of Eastman School of Music 1924-1964, and his “Merry Mount” was commissioned by the Metropolitan Opera in 1933. Christie has been studying Hanson’s portfolio of works and considers the lyric opera to “use up all the colors that Stravinsky brought to the beginning of the 20th century, and then add the reverence and grandeur of America. There are big, sweeping build-ups. It’s such a different American voice. There was Copland and Bernstein, and Hanson was just as individual.” The work will be a not-insubstantial challenge. Christie anticipates added rehearsals, and a need to ensure the stamina of the orchestra and the vocalists for this 90-minute work. He credits the RPO and ESM for taking “such an enormous cast of characters to Carnegie.” “The Merry Mount” apparently involves a “really big chorus plus individual characters and an orchestra.” Listening to Christie, who has conducted American operas and concert operas for more than 20 years, one gets the impression that he is comfortable with big — big scores, big groups of musicians and vocalists, and big sound. Perhaps it has something to do with the view he can catch in between conducting engagements around the United States, as he pilots his own single-engine, four-seat, Mooney airplane.
ALEXANDER ARUTIUNIAN SOLOIST: DOUGLAS PROSSER, TRUMPET (RPO PRINCIPAL TRUMPET)
As soon as he says, “Hello,” there is a certain laid-back quality that comes across from conductor Thomas Wilkins that makes you want to pour a cup of coffee and sit down to chat with him. He begins the conversation by reflecting on his largess about life coming into focus for a work as big as the Shostakovich Tenth Symphony. Wilkins has known he wanted to be a conductor since he was 8 years old and first heard a live symphony concert. He was captivated by the sound, and by the man standing in front who he called “the first participant in the creation of the sound.” By seventh grade, he made it to the podium before a student ensemble, where it “didn’t go well,” but he felt the encouragement of his teacher, and continued to find others with a guiding hand as he went through his studies at Shenandoah University and then the New England Conservatory of Music. Wilkins sees being a high-profile conductor as an opportunity to serve as God’s hand to shape the world around him, one individual at a time. And it may be that the story he tells that will most resonate with us is that of a college student who came up to him after a concert, asking what it meant that she had found herself in tears at the end of a Copland piece, when she had only attended the concert as a course requirement.

Conductor Michael Francis could just as easily be a narrator or actor from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. It’s not just that he’s English. He’s a natural storyteller, which makes his presence at the podium for the RPO season finale particularly sweet. He’ll be conducting two significant works that reflect stories, William Walton’s “Suite from Henry V” and Gustav Holst’s “The Planets.” Francis describes the “Henry V Suite” as “really strong,” and it’s worth noting that it has been used in everything from a 1946 LP with Laurence Olivier narrating to the 1989 movie “Henry V,” starring Kenneth Branagh. Our conversation on “The Planets” is more involved. A work in seven movements, written between 1914 and 1916, it cycles through the astrological concept of the influence of the planets upon the psyche. “The timing for Holst was so poignant,” says Francis. “The terrible war, the end of the Golden Era, a time shown in ‘Downton Abbey,’ and a sense of innocence eroded.” Francis’ preparation is a journey of “finding the human qualities behind the music.” What does it mean? What does it tell us? Francis notes that there is a “tremendous psychology” on how a conductor communicates with the orchestra. “They are a collective of people. They may have played the work before and with a better conductor. There are the technical details,” says Francis. After a pause, he continues, “And then, there is the overall vision of the piece I bring to the podium, while giving the musicians the permission to fill in the gaps.”

Twenties Triumph on Trafalgar 148 Trafalgar Street Boasting a rich heritage as one of Rochester’s largest residential neighborhoods, the 19th Ward, with its towering trees and impressive homes, enjoyed its heyday from 1910 to 1930 when it emerged as a streetcar community. Fine homes filled with natural woodwork, hardwood floors, leaded and stained glass were built to accommodate doctors, professors and skilled laborers. Today there are still many shining examples of this earlier time of craftsmanship, comfort and elegant living. One has only to walk up the driveway and enter the eastern brick portico of 148 Trafalgar Street to take a trip back to the luxury of 1920. Transitioning from present to past, pass through a tiled entryway adorned with a double layer of original leaded glass and pull open the gumwood door. Allow yourself to be enveloped in the buttery warmth of the foyer’s original parquet floors. To the left, a gleaming colonnade draws the visitor’s attention to the wide wooden entryway to the living room. Stained glass windows and modern recessed lighting illuminate built-in bookshelves, an original working fireplace with gumwood mantelpiece, and the loveliest parquet hardwood in the house with an intricate diamond weave border. Heading to the front of the house, look up to see a decorative wooden spoke-and-wheel design embellishing the entryway to the enclosed porch with its three walls of windows—a perfect sunroom, media room, or rec room.
Ryan Smith 585-201-0724
This abundance of glass is mirrored to the right of the foyer in the lovely leaded glass pocket
doors leading to the dining room. Gorgeous tulip leaf lighting decorates the four corners of the coffered ceiling. An ornate chandelier provides just the right amount of lighting for elegant dining or relaxing on the padded window seat. At the back of the house is the large eat-in kitchen, with tiled countertops, unique woodpaneled walls, and, tucked off to the side, a first floor laundry. Venture out the door to the backyard and imagine having a barbeque on the wooden deck after parking your car in the detached two-car garage. From the foyer, proceed upstairs past the colorful drop-pendant stained glass window. You’ll find four bedrooms and a full bath. Each of the bedrooms features hardwood floors, closet, ceiling fan and baseboard heating. Located just down the street from Joseph C. Wilson Magnet Commencement Academy, 148 Trafalgar Street is also within walking distance of the Arnett Branch Library, two elementary schools, and Aberdeen Square Park. Also nearby are Genesee Valley Park, the University of Rochester, downtown Rochester, the airport, and Interstate 390. Offered by Oktay Kocaoglu of Nothnagle Realtors, 148 Trafalgar Street has 1,976 square feet of space and is listed at $159,900.

Legal Ads [ NOTICE ] BRIEF SYNOPSIS OF DETERMINATION AND FINDINGS PURSUANT TO ARTICLE 2 OF THE NEW YORK STATE EMINENT DOMAIN PROCEDURE LAW The Rochester Genesee Regional Transportation Authority (“RGRTA”) shall acquire certain parcels of real property by eminent domain for the construction and operation of the Main Street Campus Improvement Project (the “Project”), a development project that will improve RGRTA’s operations at its existing campus in the City of Rochester, County of Monroe and State of New York. Copies of the determination and findings will be forwarded upon written request without cost. PROPERTY TO BE ACQUIRED RGRTA is proposing to improve operations at its existing Campus. The Project will include renovations to and expansion of the existing Operations Building; construction of a new Maintenance Warehouse Building; developing new indoor and outdoor bus parking spaces and staging areas for buses waiting for maintenance; construction of a new Service Building; providing a new employee parking area to replace the parking displaced by the new Maintenance Warehouse Building and Service Building; and other site improvements. The Project will require RGRTA to acquire twenty-one (21) parcels of private property on Hayward Avenue and Chamberlain Street and will require the City of Rochester to de-map a portion of Hayward Avenue. The properties which shall be acquired or condemned are identified by the following Tax Map Parcel Numbers: 107.61-3-37 107.69-1-32 107.69-1-33 107.69-1-34 107.69-1-36.001 107.61-3-36 107.61-3-35 107.69-1-19 107.69-1-20 107.61-3-34 107.61-3-33 107.69-1-21 107.69-1-37 107.69-1-22 107.61-3-32 107.69-1-23 107.61-3-31 107.61-3-30 107.61-3-29 107.69-1-38 107.69-1-39. PROCEDURAL HISTORY Section 1299-ii of the Public Authorities Law authorizes RGRTA to acquire or condemn real property to carry out its purposes pursuant to the Eminent Domain Procedure Law (“EDPL”). In accordance with Article 2 of the EDPL, RGRTA conducted a public hearing on May 29, 2013 to determine the need to obtain the necessary real property interests required
for the construction and operation of the Project. Notices of the public hearing were published as required under the EDPL. Property owners and other interested parties also were given advance notice of the hearing by mail. At the hearing site, copies of the maps of the property interests to be acquired by RGRTA were posted and made available to the public. All oral and written comments received during the public hearing, and in the written submission period, have been reviewed, made part of the record and given due consideration. PUBLIC NEED, USE AND PURPOSE The current configuration of RGRTA’s campus, which was constructed in 1974, results in a number of challenges to RGRTA’s operations, primarily related to inadequate bus storage and staging space and bus servicing capacity. These parking and service-capacity constraints in turn result in inefficient operations at the campus that also adversely affect the nearby residential neighborhood. Moreover, RGRTA is aiming to increase ridership each year, which will require a larger fleet over the long term. With anticipated future growth, RGRTA will have further difficulties accommodating additional fleet at its Campus in its current configuration. Therefore, RGRTA is proposing an overall reconfiguration of the East Main Street Campus to facilitate more efficient and safe operations currently and in the future. RGRTA finds that the Project will greatly improve bus servicing and maintenance capabilities at the campus with the new Service and Maintenance Buildings and expanded Operations Building. It will also greatly improve bus parking and storage at the campus by providing an adequate number of designated bus parking spaces for the fleet and by substantially increasing the number of parking spaces located indoors. These changes will improve operational efficiencies and decrease operational costs by eliminating the need to search for and shift buses from undesignated parking spaces throughout the day. Designated parking spaces will also reduce the risk of bus-to-bus and car-to-bus accidents. These changes will also allow for sidewalks and pedestrian crossings thereby providing for safe pedestrian circulation within the campus. In addition, the changes will reduce any impact of RGRTA’s operations on the nearby residential community by reducing the need for earlymorning bus starts during cold weather, the need for overnight bus servicing, and the number of buses parked at the eastern and southern perimeters of the campus.
36 CITY SEPTEMBER 25 - OCTOBER 1, 2013
In addition, the new perimeter landscaping and higher perimeter wall will create a new buffer between the campus and the surrounding residential neighborhood. Overall, these improvements will make RGRTA’s Main Street Campus operations more efficient, less intrusive, and better able to accommodate future growth in bus operations. LOCATION AND REASONS FOR SELECTION The proposed location for the Project is preferable to an alternative location because it is adjacent to RGRTA’s existing campus and is more compatible with existing RTS operations and route structures. In addition, RGRTA considered alternatives where varying amounts of land would be acquired. During the course of its evaluations, RGRTA determined that it could not meet its operational needs within the footprint of its existing campus because several critical needs would not be able to be met. RGRTA also considered acquiring only 1.4 acres of land, but again the area was not large enough to accommodate all the needed functions, including providing adequate employee parking. ENVIRONMENTAL AND LOCALITY EFFECTS The Project will not have a significant adverse impact on the environment or the community, and any adverse impacts that will occur can be mitigated. The land to be disturbed for purposes of development of the Project is located in an urban area occupied by residential structures and yards, which will be demolished and removed as part of the Project. The building and construction of the Project will be performed as quickly and efficiently as possible. Construction activity generally will be limited to daylight hours. The contractors undertaking construction activities will implement appropriate measures to avoid or minimize excessive noise, vibration, air quality impacts, and impacts from stormwater run off and erosion. Upon completion of the construction of the Project, there will not be any significant adverse impacts to the Project site or to any areas adjacent thereto, including adjacent and nearby residential areas, associated with mobile source emissions or stationary source emissions. The Project will not significantly change the number or timing of vehicle trips arriving at or departing from the Campus and will not change the numbers of buses entering and exiting the Campus or their schedules. Therefore, no significant changes to existing traffic conditions are anticipated as a result of the Project. Project-generated noise levels will be well below the FTA impact
threshold levels, indicating that the Project will not result in significant adverse noise impacts at nearby noisesensitive uses. Further, the small change in vehicle trips will not affect existing noise levels at the Campus entrance. Moreover, the Project includes several improvements that will reduce presently existing noise impacts to the surrounding neighborhood including expansion of indoor bus storage that will reduce noise associated with the early morning cold bus starts; increase in servicing capacity to allow servicing to be completed much earlier in the evening; and installation of a new 10-foothigh pre-cast, decorative concrete wall around the perimeter of the expanded campus that will improve security and create a visual and noise buffer between the campus and the surrounding neighborhood. Given its location, the Project will not result in any impacts to water resources. As with existing conditions, stormwater discharged from the Project site will enter a combined sewer that is treated at the City of Rochester’s sewage treatment plant and, thus, no significant adverse impacts to groundwater are expected. Further, as part of the Project, drainage structures, primarily located along the eastern boundary of the Campus, will be replaced as will the storm sewer piping, catch basins and trench drain. The Project will not have a significant adverse impact on historic or archeological resources. The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (“SHPO”) confirmed that there are no State/National Register eligible/listed properties on or within the immediate vicinity of the Project site; thus the Project will not affect any historic properties. The Project will involve subsurface disturbance on the residential properties west of the existing campus that have been identified as potentially archaeologically sensitive. Therefore, Phase IB archaeological testing will be conducted in these areas to test for the presence or absence of archaeological resources. The archaeological testing will be implemented when RGRTA has control of the properties, in advance of construction of the Project on those portions of the site. The Phase IB surveys will be undertaken in compliance with applicable standards and guidelines for archaeological surveys, including those promulgated by the SHPO, New York Archaeological Council, and the U.S. Secretary of the Interior. At any locations where archaeological resources are encountered, additional archaeological study will be undertaken in consultation with the SHPO. This will
include determining the National Register eligibility of any resources or sites encountered. If any sites are determined to be eligible for the National Register, then mitigation measures would be implemented for those sites, which could include avoidance or data recovery prior to any project construction at those locations The Project site is not in an area encompassed by agricultural uses, nor is it known to have been devoted to such uses previously. Further, the Project site is not known to be used for recreational purposes, nor is it known to be used as an open space by the community, nor does the Project site contain any views deemed important to the community and, thus, development of the Project will not have any detrimental effect on such views. Moreover, the Project site and associated area is not located in a statutorily defined “critical environmental area” under New York law, nor is the Project site designated or proposed as a “critical habitat” in accordance with federal law. The project will not result in any impacts to threatened or endangered species. There will be minimal impacts to the local infrastructure, including public safety, solid waste and energy. The Project will not create a material conflict with the community’s current land use plans or goals. The Project will continue the present transportation use of the existing Campus site. The twenty-one (21) residential properties that are part of the Project site will be acquired and converted from residential use to transportation use. The enlarged campus will continue the same transportation use that presently exists adjacent to an existing residential neighborhood. Although, the Campus site is being enlarged, the larger campus is proposed to accommodate the existing level of use; no increase in the transportation activities is proposed. As a result, the transportation uses on the enlarged campus will be similarly compatible with the surrounding residential neighborhood. In fact, the improvements proposed as part of the Project, ranging from installation of a new wall, to moving bus servicing indoors, as well as the adequate provision of employee parking on campus, will serve to improve the quality of life in the surrounding neighborhood. The Project will not result in significant adverse impacts to visual and aesthetic conditions. The Project would not result in any significant adverse socioeconomic impacts, including such impacts that would disproportionately effect low-income and minority populations.
DETERMINATION The foregoing represents the RGRTA’s Determination and Findings under Section 204(B) of the Eminent Domain Procedures Law. The parcels identified above are needed to construct and operate the Project RGRTA is satisfied that, as required under Section 204(B) of the Eminent Domain Procedures Law : (1) the public use, benefit, or purpose of the project has been established in the record; (2) the approximate location of the proposed public project has been established and an explanation of the reasons for the selection of that location has been provided; and (3) the general effect of the proposed project on the environment and the residents of the localities in which the project will be located has been comprehensively examined. Accordingly, RGRTA finds that the necessary justification exists to proceed to condemn the parcels identified above. Copies of the determination and findings will be forwarded upon written request without cost.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD In the public libraries of Seattle (as in most public libraries), patrons are not allowed to eat or sleep (or even appear to be sleeping) or be shirtless or barefoot or have bad body odor or talk too loudly -- because other patrons might be disturbed. However, in Seattle, as the Post-Intelligencer reported in September, librarians do permit patrons to watch hard-core pornography on public computers, without apparent restriction, no matter who (adult or child) is walking by or sitting inches away at the next screen (although librarians politely ask porn-watchers to consider their neighbors). Said a library spokesperson: “(P)atrons have a right to view constitutionally protected material no matter where they are in the building, and the library does not censor.”
— Japan and Korea seem to be the birthplaces in the quest for youthful and beautiful skin, with the latest “elixir” (as usual, based on traditional, centuries-old beliefs) being snail mucus -- applied by specially bred live snails that slither across customers’ faces. The Clinical Salon in central Tokyo sells the 60-minute Celebrity Escargot Course session for the equivalent of about $250 and even convinced a London Daily Telegraph reporter to try one in July. (Previously, News of the Weird has informed readers of Asian nightingale-feces facials and live-fish pedicures.) — Unclear on the Concept: Among people earnestly devoted to palmistry (the foretelling of the future by “expert” examination of the inner surface
of the hand), a few in Japan have resorted to what seems like cheating: altering their palm lines with cosmetic surgery. According to a July Daily Beast dispatch from Tokyo, Dr. Takaaki Matsuoka is a leading practitioner, preferring an electric scalpel over laser surgery in that the latter more often eventually heals over, obviously defeating the purpose. He must be careful to add or move only the lines requested by the patient (e.g., “marriage” line, “romance” line, “money-luck” line, “financial” success line).
Squirrels Gone Wild
Smithsonian magazine detailed in August the exhaustive measures that military officials have taken to finally block relentless Richardson’s ground squirrels from tunneling underneath Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana and interfering with the Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missiles on 24/7 standby. For example, officials had to use trial-and-error to plant underground screens deeper into the ground than the squirrels cared to dig. A day after that report was published, a bus driver in Gothenburg, Sweden, crashed into a tree (with six passengers requiring hospital treatment) after swerving to avoid a squirrel in the road. On the same day, a New York Times reporter disclosed that his own news monitoring for 2013 revealed that squirrels have caused 50 power outages in 24 states in the U.S. since Memorial Day after invading electric company substations.
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 34 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t fight the inevitable when it comes to love. Go with your heart, and you’ll work out the little kinks as you go along. Nothing in life is perfect, but what you share with someone can be close enough to make you happy. Embrace the rush of love. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Share the way you feel and what your intentions are. So much can be sorted out if you ask questions. Love is on the rise, and a serious commitment can be made. Do your best to entice the one you love with your best offer. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You may be interested in someone
you work with, but if the person you want to be with is already attached, you must restrict making a move that has the potential to ruin your reputation or cost you your job. Don’t flirt with danger. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Get out and attend functions that are diverse and will introduce you to people from all walks of life. The chance to indulge in activities and events that sponsor different cultures will bring you in touch with someone unique and alluring. Love is in the stars. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Passion will be your middle name, but unfortunately, it will be
coupled with trouble. Together, that can lead to a provocative situation that ends up costing you emotionally and financially. Don’t put your reputation at risk. Keep your distance from anyone who takes advantage of your generosity. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Participate and join in on the fun. Getting out and socializing will lead to love. A blind date or meeting someone at a convention or through a reputable dating service will work well for you as long as you don’t let your emotions take over. Slow down -- true love takes time. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ll be tempted to take a backward
step when it comes to love. Remember the reason why the relationship didn’t work the first time around. Control issues are likely to arise along with indulgences that were not easy to deal with in the past. Look before you leap. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Good fortune and personal gains will come with the right relationship. Sharing your goals with someone as unique as you will enable you to build a wonderful, long-lasting relationship that enhances what you are both trying to achieve. Love and commitment are in the stars. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Fickleness will be the culprit
that makes a relationship difficult for you. An inability to be monogamous or to be honest regarding your true feelings is likely to lead to an emotional roller coaster ride when it comes to love relationships. Don’t make promises you don’t intend to keep. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You will attract equality when it comes to your personal relationships. Your confidence will attract partners who can match you every step of the way. The person who has the most in common with you and similar life goals will go the distance. Together you will find satisfaction and happiness.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Steer clear of anyone trying to railroad you into a commitment. You need time to discover friendship and to experiment with love before you make a promise that will tie you up mentally, physically and financially. Be honest as to what you have to offer. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Display your passion along with whatever else you have to offer, and you will attract partners ready to meet you halfway. Don’t let distance deter you from choosing the right partner. Someone closer may not be as into you. Make your choice based on love, not convenience.
