Court of second chances Darryl Ballard (pictured) says he knows he’s lucky that he’s not in prison. Ballard cussed out a Rochester police officer two years ago while the officer was engaged in an altercation with Ballard’s best friend. Ballard was arrested, too, and charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. But it could have been much worse. “I could have been charged with a felony and I could have done real time,” he says.
And that might have been Ballard’s fate if not for the Rochester Teen Court. Ballard is one of more than 1,000 area teens who have participated in the court since it began 15 years ago. Ballard says that the court helped him get counseling to control his anger, and he credits it with giving him a second chance. “If it wasn’t for Teen Court, I don’t know where I’d be right now,” he says. “My life wasn’t going well.”

Where’s City’s anti-war voice?
I’ve been in the anti-war movement since the Vietnam days. One thing on which we could always rely was the loud and continuing support of liberals – until now. President Peace Prize has involved America in more foreign military adventures than any president in history, and your near-silence is deafening. Obama, Hillary Clinton, and John Kerry, formerly anti-war activists, have sold their souls for political power and today are among the most hawkish figures in public life. What’s City’s excuse?

Warren can bring important change
You stated that “Richard’s withdrawal turns the focus to the changes ahead under a Warren or White administration – in schools and development” (“Theories and Questions for a Post-Richards Race”). I think City News misses the significance of Rochester’s first black woman mayor. Lovely Warren could be a game-changer on a spiritual level. She does not fit the mold of a city manager. We have problems that go deeper than simple fixing, with poverty, crime, racism, education, etc. Rochester needs change from within, but we the people seem unwilling to get involved. Maybe Rochesterians are just too conservative, too resistant to change for their own good. I am one who resists change. But maybe a Mayor Lovely Warren can awaken the spirit of change. This could be the beginning of a new era for the city and the region. Think of all the
ideas that need to be heard. Think of all the potential involvement of our people. Perhaps she can kindle a flame that can spread throughout Monroe County. HARRY S. PEARLE
The path to health care reform
“The discoveries of healing science must be the inheritance of all. That is clear. Disease must be attacked, whether it occurs in the poorest or the richest man or woman simply on the ground that it is the enemy; and it must be attacked just in the same way as the fire brigade will give its full assistance to the humblest cottage as readily as to the most important mansion. Our policy is to create a national health service in order to ensure that everybody in the country, irrespective of means, age, sex, or occupation, shall have equal opportunities to benefit from the best and most up-to-date medical and allied services available.” – Winston Churchill, 1947. Most European countries have national health services that cover all citizens and even residents. And they’ve done so for decades. I know: I’ve lived in England, Germany, Greece, and Portugal. What is our problem? Looks to me like it’s a combination of classism and racism: “if you’re not making enough to pay for medical care, it’s because you’re lazy – and besides, you’re probably African-American or Latino-American.” Surely it’s not an accident that the Tea Party is largely European-American. One solution would be an effective multi-party system – Tea Party, Republicans, Democrats, Socialists, etc. – that really worked, like, say Germany. Of course, neither of the two ruling parties would support that. If we can’t have that, how about elections where candidates don’t have to sell themselves to wealthy contributors and lobbying groups, then repay them with legislative favors? In Mexico, that counts as corruption. In the US, it’s legal – and has become essential if you want to get elected.
And if the rich can buy your vote, they might not want you to raise their taxes to support those lazy folks who don’t work hard enough to deserve health care. So what’s left? You might consider moving to Canada. Or Europe. If we don’t like the way things are going and want to stay in the US, we have to work to change the system. PACHO LANE
Behavior issues, in school and out
While responses with “aggression and defensiveness” might unfortunately be relevant to the culture of some students in their neighborhoods, it is not appropriate for schools, and when it becomes disruptive to the learning of other students it is unacceptable (“School Board Members Don’t Trust Suspension Data,” News Blog). [School Board member Cynthia] Elliot seems to justify behavior that is harming the ability of all students to learn. Inside a school building it is a pretty easy objective to measure, independent of racial/gender/ cultural factors, when behavior of some students creates a roadblock to the learning of the majority of students by disrupting learning and instruction. If Ms. Elliot is not aware of some of the ridiculous behavior that is displayed by some students on a regular basis that merits suspension, she might want to spend a little more time in school buildings to earn some of the $20K+ she’s earning yearly as a school board representative. RCSD PARENT
The mayor should call a press conference and call out the so-called black community (Richards Demands Plan to Stop Youth Fights,” News Blog). It’s a community issue (home, community, then all else), a “cultural crisis.” As an AfricanAmerican grassroots leadership advocate, I am disheartened, disgusted, and embarrassed over the so-called black community’s inability to manage its future.

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
Teenagers, fights, and downtown Rochester You’ve read the stories: As hundreds of teenagers change RTS buses downtown after school, fights erupt, crowds gather, chaos ensues, and the police try to restore order. The fights don’t happen every day. But they happen often enough to be a serious problem. And last week, the chaos had a new element: somebody fired a gun. Nobody was hurt, but that’s the only piece of good news out of this mess. Downtown office workers feel intimidated. Business owners, restaurateurs, rental agents, and developers are worried. Mayor Tom Richards issued a stern warning to school district officials: The district’s current student transportation system, which deposits several hundred high school students on Main Street every afternoon, is “unacceptable and cannot continue.” So school district officials are talking to transit officials, whose buses highschool students ride to and from school. Bus routes will change, presumably. The district will assign personnel to be present downtown during the transfer periods. And the Rochester Police Department will, in Richards’ words, “continue to deploy significant resources to deal with problems that may arise.” And everybody will cross their fingers, I guess. This is such a delicate time for downtown Rochester. You can see the little spurts of new life: more people living there, new businesses opening, new apartments and condos under way. And the arts and entertainment offerings downtown are simply exploding. This didn’t happen by accident. The city has offered strategic incentives, and developers have responded with major investments. But these are little steps forward – important steps, to be sure, but little steps. And it won’t take much to reverse them. Government officials, school district officials, transit officials, and business leaders will continue to huddle and try to figure out what to do about the convergence of crowds of teenagers downtown after school. I hope the conversation continues after the bus routes are changed. Because the bus routes aren’t the problem. They make it easier for the problem to break out, by depositing large numbers of people in one area, but they’re not the problem. Remember the Memorial Day when Seabreeze amusement park closed because of
Something’s going on among Rochester teenagers that we need to understand. And rerouting buses deals with the end result, not the cause. rumors that fights were being planned over social media? Remember the fights at this year’s Lilac Festival? Remember the fights last month at the Regal Cinema in Irondequoit? These had nothing to do with bus transfers on Main Street. (And then there was the day when police were alerted to a crowd of teenagers headed downtown, walking, from East High School.) Something’s going on among Rochester’s young people that we need to understand – and find a way to deal with. And rerouting buses simply deals with the end result, not the cause. The fights are like boils erupting. That doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t redo the bus routes. We should. The convergence of hundreds of teenagers on Main Street downtown has created a condition in which fights can not only break out but can make the area unsafe, for other students and for people who work, live, or visit downtown. Students have the same right as everyone else to be downtown. But no group of people can, by their numbers and their actions, so intimidate others that they take control of the space. The number of students involved in the fights is small. But the crowds that gather around them are not. That magnifies the intimidation, and the danger. This is a complex issue, but that hasn’t stopped people from pointing fingers and shifting responsibility: It’s the school district’s responsibility to fix this! It’s the cops’ responsibility! And, of course: It’s the parents’ fault! Heidi Zimmer-Meyer, president of the Rochester Downtown Development Corporation, took a different tack when I talked with her late last week. continues on page 7 rochestercitynewspaper.com
[ NEWS FROM THE WEEK PAST ]
The family of former Monroe Community Hospital patient Samuel Condello has filed a lawsuit against the county. Todd Spring, the hospital’s former chief administrator, allegedly took away Condello’s wheelchair as a disciplinary action. Spring was eventually terminated. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.
We’re No. 2
The state Comptroller’s Office released its list of fiscally stressed municipalities, and former list-topper Monroe County dropped to No. 2. The county was surpassed by Rockland County. The Comptroller’s Office’s scoring takes into account several factors, including debts, operating deficits, fixed costs, population demographics, employment base, and sales tax revenues.
Camera suit heard
A written decision in the lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the City of Rochester’s use of red light cameras is expected in November. Arguments were heard by State Supreme Court Justice Scott Odorisi last week. Local attorney Lawrence Krieger filed the suit, claiming that the cameras violate the Fifth Amendment right to due process.

FOOD TRUCKS | BY JEREMY MOULE
The hots for Henrietta A proposed law would clear the way for food trucks and carts to operate on private properties with industrial or commercial zoning in the town of Henrietta. But the law would also require permits for the owners of the “mobile food vehicles,” as well as for the property owners who host the vehicles. The latter permit would include specific areas on the sites where the vehicles can park. Any changes to the permits would have to be approved by the Town Board.
BE OUR TWEET-HEART Follow CITY on Twitter!
Town Board member Bill Mulligan says that the dual permits are meant to keep the food trucks and carts from “bouncing around” the town. The Town Board will hold a public hearing on the proposal at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, October 2, at Town Hall, 475 Calkins Road. The impetus for the law was the Brick-N-Motor food truck, which started making lunchtime stops at Eagle’s Landing Business Park on Jefferson Road earlier this year. Paul Vroman, who co-owns and operates Brick-N-Motor, says that

the proposed law is a good start, but that property owners shouldn’t have to get a permit. Food truck operators should be responsible for identifying potential sites and securing the necessary approvals, he says. “There are too many steps to be taken to get a spot,” he says. Vroman says he agrees that food truck and cart proprietors should get the owner’s permission to operate on a property. But the process of adding spots should be simpler, he says.

Rochester school board members got some good news recently about suspensions. According to a new report, short- and longterm suspensions in the school district have dropped significantly, from 11,000 in the 2007 to 2008 school year to 5,500 in 2012 to 2013. But most board members don’t trust the data. District officials concede that the way disciplinary problems are reported varies from school to school. And they say that even data from as recently as two years ago isn’t thorough. Board members are trying to determine if suspensions are effective or if they just remove students from classrooms and reduce instruction time. Board members Cynthia Elliott, Van White, and Mary Adams say that they are also concerned that the disciplinary actions are more severe for African American and Latino students than they are for other students. Elliott questions whether teachers, who are largely white and female, fully understand and have been trained on how to respond to some behaviors that may seem inappropriate, but are culturally relevant. Many city students respond with aggression or defensiveness, she says, because they need to protect themselves in the neighborhoods where they live. And she questions whether policies rooted in zero-tolerance ideology are actually contributing to problem behavior.
In a long-awaited report, the world’s top climate scientists say that there’s no longer room to doubt or deny that climate change is happening and that human activity is the largest contributing factor. | While scientists were already certain that human activity is driving global warming, the report concludes that “It is extremely likely that human influence has been the dominant cause of the observed warming since the mid-20th century.” | Since preindustrial times, atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations have increased by 40 percent, largely because of fossil fuel emissions and land-use changes. The oceans have absorbed about 30 percent of the emitted carbon dioxide, which is causing ocean acidification. | The report says that by the end of the century, global average temperatures will likely increase by 1.5 degrees Celsius, and a 2 degrees Celsius increase is more likely than not. Scientists consider a 2-degree increase to be the tipping point beyond which serious changes will happen on a global scale. | The report also says that Arctic sea ice will very likely continue to shrink. Increasing atmospheric carbon concentrations are also likely, the IPCC says, and that’ll lead to increasing ocean acidification.
White says that parents need to be better informed about their legal rights when it comes to school discipline. Most parents don’t appeal suspensions, he says, because they don’t Cynthia Elliott. know that’s an option. PHOTO PROVIDED And Adams says that she has requested more information from the Rochester Police Department about its contact with city students. Monroe, Wilson Commencement Academy, East, School of the Arts, Charlotte, and School 17 had the most suspensions last year. Most are short-term, in-school suspensions for incidents involving minor altercations, disruptive behavior, and assaults that caused physical injury. Bringing weapons to school, and possessing and selling drugs were other leading causes for suspensions. Suspensions occurred in nearly every grade last year, but the majority was clustered in grades 7 through 9. While Superintendent Bolgen Vargas has renewed emphasis on data collection, school officials say that it’s not easy. A fight, for example, could be reported a few different ways.

CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY | BY JEREMY MOULE
Conscience incorporated When Liz Brenna got serious about starting her own consulting firm, she decided it would be as focused on the greater good as it is on turning a profit. But she couldn’t find a suitable option under the state’s business laws. So Brenna worked to get her company, Socially Good Business, certified as a B Corporation. The nonprofit B Lab administers the certification, which requires companies to meet rigorous workplace, social, and environmental criteria. It also requires them to make ongoing improvements in those areas to retain their designation. “It’s basically saying that our ability to sustain ourselves as a business, to create a profit, is equal to our desire as a business to conduct ourselves in a way that benefits society and the planet,” Brenna says. Socially Good Business helps its clients integrate positive social and environmental practices into their companies’ cultures and branding. It was the first B Corp — the B stands for “Benefit” — in the Rochester area, though recently Staach and Brand Cool have also been certified. The three local businesses are part of a growing national movement of companies that place equal emphasis on profits and fulfilling social and environmental missions. Nationally, the B Corp ranks include Method, which makes non-toxic cleaning products; the Cabot dairy cooperative; the worker-owned King Arthur Flour Company; and Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. To get certified, each company has to complete a detailed assessment of employee pay, benefits, and working conditions; energy conservation and renewable energy use; and community-focused efforts like employee volunteer programs. The assessment scores are listed at www.bcorporation.net. The companies also have to make sure that their legal documents include environmental and social commitments as part of their corporate structure. “It puts sustainability into the DNA of the company so that when it grows, brings in outside capital, plans secession, has new leadership or management, that core commitment remains,” says Katie Kerr, a spokesperson for B Lab. Brenna spent several years working in
marketing for Ben & Jerry’s and says she saw a company that integrates social and environmental values into everything it does. As a company, Ben & Jerry’s is known as much for its progressive campaigns on marriage equality, climate change, and election finance reform as it is for its ice cream. Brenna started Socially Good Business as a way to take the practices she learned at Ben & 6 CITY

Jerry’s and to help other companies apply them. She calls her business a societal and environmental integrity development agency. Its staff helps companies set up and follow through with things like Fair Trade certification, employee volunteer programs, vendor social and environmental standards, and responsible sourcing initiatives. Brenna says that corporate social and environmental responsibility shouldn’t be a marketing gimmick. “To truly do it the right way you have to incorporate it into every nook and cranny of your business,” she says. Like Brenna, Brand Cool CEO Sue Kochan was looking for a better model of running a business — one where profits and doing “something good and valuable in the world” are on equal footing. So as the business went forward, Kochan says, the company made sure that there were policies and programs in place to benefit staff and the community. Brand Cool was certified as a B Corp in August. On its assessment, Brand Cool scored highest on the employee and community impact categories. Kochan says that was a welcome affirmation of the company’s values and practices. Brand Cool does pro-bono work, including an upcoming Ad Council of Rochester campaign meant to increase organ donor registrations. It also has programs for its employees to serve on volunteer boards and marketing committees. And each time it gets a new client, Kochan says, the company makes a donation to Foodlink. When it comes to taking on clients, Brand Cool sticks with companies that are in line with the Brand Cool’s social and community values, Kochan says. “We want to work with clients that are really making a difference in the world and really paying attention to how they do business, if they’ve adopted responsible business practices,” she says. One of the company’s clients is Sodexo, a massive global firm that provides everything from institutional
food and laundry services to employee benefits programs. Brand Cool is building a wastereduction toolkit for the company’s food, cleaning, landscaping, and janitorial services sites. The idea is to build an interactive, engaging program that encourages site managers to embrace waste reduction, not just do the bare minimum. Kochan says that the B Corp approach has worked well for Brand Cool. The company’s revenues are up, she says, and it is adding staff. Last year the company was No. 15 on the Rochester Top 100, a list of the region’s fastest-growing private businesses. Staach manufactures furniture, placing an emphasis on
environmentallyfriendly practices. Seth Eshelman, an RIT grad, founded Staach as a small design studio. He says he figured that he could design products and subcontract out the Liz Brenna owns Socially Good Business. PHOTO BY MARK CHAMBERLIN manufacturing. But he says that he had difficulty finding someone to The company has a living wage standard produce the products to the quality and for employees, and when it’s looked for environmental standards he wanted. facilities, Sherman says, it’s tried to find places “I ended up realizing, ‘Well, OK, if I can’t find someone else to do it, I might as well just that are well-lit by daylight, because it creates a more pleasant work environment. try to do it myself,’” Eshelman says. But the idea for Staach to pursue B Corp One advantage of the B Corp certification is that it builds consumer and client certification came from Anne Sherman, the confidence, Sherman says. It shows that company’s director of sustainability.

Sherman says that almost all of the business Staach receives is because of its environmental standards. The company’s furniture is made from Forest Stewardship Council-certified wood, and Staach also uses water-based paints, which are less toxic than other paints, Sherman says, and healthier for the company’s employees.
Teenagers, fights continues from page 3
“The adults in this community have failed these young people,” she said. And she means everybody: parents, schools, government, politicians, businesses, institutions…. Everybody has to take responsibility, Zimmer-Meyer said. “We can not run away from it.” As we talked about the fights, Zimmer-Meyer also brought up the low graduation rate in Rochester schools, most of whose students are black or Hispanic – and the high incarceration rate of black men… and poverty. Zimmer-Meyer is right: these are all related. We can’t talk about problems like graduation rates and Main Street fights in isolation. We have to address them all, and all at the same time. What should we do? Zimmer-Meyer cited the need for jobs, for job training, for the school district to do a better job…. But she also honed in on the key issue: the poverty that we have allowed to grow in the core of this community. Many of the city’s schools have student poverty rates of more than 90 percent. We can keep denying that this concentration has an effect, we can keep blaming teachers or police or city officials or parents – or we can take the gunshot downtown last week as a wake-up call. Obviously we have to stop the fights – on Main Street, in movie theaters, and elsewhere. But insisting that the school district and police bear the sole responsibility for doing it is a lazy bit of buck-passing. Where are the school parents’ groups? The ministers? The staffs of the settlement houses and rec centers? The neighborhood groups? And by the way: stopping the fights downtown will be futile if that’s all we do. The teenagers and young adults for whom violence is now part of the culture will find other venues for their score settling. It isn’t that we haven’t tried to do something for Rochester’s young people. Every time you turn around, you see news of another initiative: in education, in health care, in childhood development. We have to keep doing those things, and strengthen them. But what are we doing about the poverty and the culture it is breeding? That is a much harder thing to tackle – hard even to talk about. But until we start, we’ll keep treating eruptions of the boils, not the underlying cause.

Darryl Ballard says he knows he’s lucky that he’s not in prison. A short young man with a slight build and dreadlocks pulled back from his boyish face, Ballard says that, two years ago, he cussed out a Rochester police officer while the officer was engaged in an altercation with Ballard’s best friend. Things got out of hand, Ballard says, and he was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. “At first, I couldn’t believe it,” he says. “I had never been arrested before.” Ballard, who’d recently returned to Rochester, spent the night in jail because, he says, he father couldn’t afford bail. “It was frightening,” he says. “I was in there with all these older guys who’ve done all kinds of stuff. And I didn’t know what they were going to do. It was scary. I just stayed up all night.” But it could have been much worse, he says. His scuffle with the officer could have easily turned into a far more serious charge. “I could have been charged with a felony and I could have done real time,” he says. And that might’ve been Ballard’s fate if not for the Rochester Teen Court, which offers some young offenders an alternative to the traditional criminal justice system. Ballard’s misdemeanor charge and his clean record made him eligible for the court, and he got his second chance. “If it wasn’t for Teen Court, I don’t know where I’d be right now,” he says. “My life wasn’t going well.” Ballard is one of more than 1,000 area teens who have participated in the court since it began 15 years ago. Ballard says that the court helped him get counseling to control his anger. Though he’s good in math and technology, Ballard says that he wants to go to Monroe Community College to pursue music and art. He says that prior to his experience with Teen Court, going to college wasn’t a priority.

If Teen Court shut down, the impact would be felt most by teens like Ballard, who are among the area’s most vulnerable and at risk. The cost to taxpayers could climb, and an opportunity for many young people to become productive citizens would be lost.

The Rochester Teen Court was created under former mayor William Johnson. A small contingency of professionals involved with young people and Family Court traveled to Galveston, Texas to learn about that city’s teen court. The group was led by Van White, who was special counsel on crime initiatives in the Johnson administration and now sits on the Rochester school board, and US District Court Judge Frank Geraci. “Our response to crime was comprehensive,” White says. “It was a three-pronged approach: prevention, intervention, and interdiction. The teen court Rochester modeled after Galveston’s was about both prevention and intervention.” The concept of youth justice dates back to the late 1800’s, and the special courts are sometimes called “youth” or “peer” courts. Prior to the 19th century, children over the age of 5 were considered mature or miniature adults, writes DeMica Robinson, in a study for Wilson County, Tennessee concerning the effectiveness of teen courts. Back then, children who got into trouble were usually placed in work situations under apprenticeships or subjected to church discipline methods, where they often received public whippings and floggings. There are about 4,000 teen courts operating in cities throughout the US, and there are several different versions. The Rochester Teen Court is a voluntary option for youth ages 16 to 19 who have committed low-level, nonviolent, first-time offenses. It doesn’t cost them anything, but the offer comes with some rules.
CITY NEWSPAPER | COVER STORY
First, the court is a sentencing court. When a City Court judge offers a teen defendant the option of going through Teen Court, it’s with the clear understanding that the teen acknowledges guilt. The case is heard by the presiding judge, and the defendant’s attorney and a prosecutor are present for some training and technical guidance.
But the defendants are represented by peer attorneys, and it’s the job of peer prosecutors to seek the sentence they think is appropriate from a jury composed of the defendant’s peers. Some of the jurors and all of the peer attorneys are volunteers, often motivated by their interests in criminal justice or law. In exchange for completing the terms of the sentence, the defendant’s record is sealed.

Sentencing might include community service, a presentation or written essay about the crime and its impact on others, and an apology to those who were hurt. Defendants may also be required to receive counseling for drug or alcohol dependency or anger management, and they have to agree to serve as teen jurors in at least three cases.
Most teens who qualify for Teen Court do
choose that option, says City Council member Elaine Spaull. Spaull is also director of the Center for Youth, where much of the Teen Court program is administered. “The goal here is to make this first offense the last one,” she says. “This is serious. This isn’t a game we’re playing here. If you don’t complete the sentence, you’ll go right back to the regular court. And that’s not going to be good. You’re not going to like what happens there.” When the program hit a financial hurdle this year due to severe budget cuts by the Rochester school district — one of its biggest funders — Spaull scrambled to fill the gap. “Ask anyone who knows about youth and criminal justice in this city and they’ll tell you this program works,” she says. The Rochester Police Department gave Spaull informal data showing that teenagers who go through the court have an approximate 15 percent recidivism rate. The data isn’t perfect because the RPD is unable to track teenagers who leave the area, Spaull says. But she says that’s a small number. That falls in line with recent studies on youth courts. A report funded by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention and the Urban Institute followed 500 young people in four states who went through youth courts. A year later, the recidivism rate was in the single digits. That’s dramatically lower than it is for teenagers who go through the regular system, Spaull says. Recidivism for that group in most cities is roughly 39 percent, she says. The vast majority of the youth who go through Rochester’s Teen Court are city school students. But the court is seeing more students from the suburbs, Spaull says. And the students are a mix of males and females, she says.

The crimes are what you might expect from the average teenager, says Justice Frank Geraci, a big supporter of the Teen Court. Shoplifting, trespassing, stealing, drug possession, and minor fights and altercations make up the majority, he says. Sometimes called “gateway crimes,” they’re often symptoms of bigger problems in a young person’s life, Geraci says. “If we could deal with the underlying problems, we could reduce crimes overall,” he says. The judge or teen attorney may ask questions like, “What is your home life like? What is your GPA? How many days of school have you missed so far this year? Do you use marijuana? When was the last time you used it?” The idea is to slow the justice system down, Geraci says. Judges normally don’t have the opportunity to learn all of the extenuating circumstances that might be influencing a young defendant’s life, he says. As an example, Geraci cites a case that, he says is never far from his mind. “One young woman wasn’t going to school, and when she was, she would get into these fights,” he says. “But we found out that she was taking care of her two young siblings and dealing with a drug-addicted mother. We were able to identify the problem she was having — a lot for a young person her age to be dealing with. But we were able to hook her up to the resources to not only help her, but begin to address the problems her mother was having.” Studies show that the other reason youth courts work has to do with the teenage peers. Contrary to the impression that many people have — that youth courts are a slap on the wrist or “kiddie” courts — teenagers can be especially tough on their peers. And they understand, perhaps better than almost anyone else, what may be happening to the teenager sitting across from them, says city school board president Malik Evans. Evans was one of the first students to volunteer as a teen attorney. He says that there’s often a dynamic that happens between teens. They know when they’re being conned, he says, and they’re not afraid to call the person on it.
But they also know what questions to ask and where to look for problems, Evans says. They’re able to communicate with one another in ways that adults, including parents and family members, sometimes find too difficult, he says. And Teen Court offers an incredible educational opportunity for students, Evans says. “You learn how to speak in front of others and present your ideas to make your point,” he says. “And you learn about the judicial system.” Kashii VanHook just finished volunteering as a teen attorney. The 17-year-old senior at Greece Athena High School says that she is giving serious thought to going into law, and Teen Court gave her the opportunity to see how the criminal justice system works. “It’s a learning experience for everyone involved,” VanHook says. “I could see that it really helped them [teen defendants] to open their minds and turn themselves around. It helped me because I am interested in psychology, social work, and the law. And I learned that sometimes people deserve a second chance. I really don’t think most of them will make the same mistake again.”
Sometimes it takes an event like this for some young people to know that people care about them, she says. “When they’re there in the courtroom, they’re frightened because they don’t want to go to jail,” she says. “Nobody wants that. But sometimes it takes something like this for them to realize that people are trying to help them.” VanHook remembers one young girl who was caught shoplifting. “Her mother was there in court with her,” she says. “The mom really loved her child and was trying everything she could to help her. In fact, I never found one situation where the mom wasn’t there fighting for her child. When you see that, that’s powerful.”
It’s ironic that youth courts like Rochester
Teen Court fall prey to budget cuts because most research shows that they are one of the most cost-effective tools available in the criminal justice system, says former mayor William Johnson. This year’s budget for Rochester Teen Court is about $100,000. The adult attorneys and continues on page 10

judges involved with the court often donate their time. “This is a special court that doesn’t need a lot of money,” Johnson says. “Think about it. Incarcerating one teen for a year can cost up to $150,000. And all we’re trying to do is keep minor offenses from turning into major problems.” “Almost every college campus today has something comparable when issues come up,
And once they enter into the criminal justice system, even for minor offenses, they are passengers in what many sociologists and judicial experts call the “cradle to prison pipeline.” Each year, New York’s criminal courts see 16 and 17 year olds — as many as 50,000 — who face the possibility of prosecution as adults. And more than 74 percent of the time, according to the Children’s Defense Fund,
“I learned that sometimes people deserve a second chance. I really don’t think most of them will make the same mistake again.” like cheating or plagiarism,” he says. “They try to find a solution before this disrupts your whole college education and career. What good would that do any of us? And I look at Teen Court in a similar way.” But keeping young people out of the criminal justice system even for minor incidents is harder than you might think. Society’s attitude toward juvenile crime has changed over the last 30 years. Not long ago, if a young person got into minor trouble, he might have to work a couple of weekends to pay for the neighbor’s broken window, for example. That’s not the case today, particularly in urban environments where people often don’t know their neighbors well. Even a minor schoolyard fight can have unintended consequences. A 16-year-old can be tried as an adult in North Carolina and New York. Advocates of the “Raise the Age” program want the age limit raised to at least 18 because, they say, teens often can’t control their impulses and they make poor decisions as a result. 10 CITY OCTOBER 2-8, 2013
it’s for misdemeanors. Most of these young people are black and Latino. “What changed about a dozen or so years ago was we adopted programs with zero tolerance,” says Judith Kaye, former chief judge of the New York Court of Appeals. Most often these teenagers are from poor households, she says. They need guidance, Kaye says, and for a variety of reasons, they aren’t getting it. These are the same young people who get stopped and frisked, she says, and they’re also the ones most likely to drop out of school. Even a minor brush with the law can be a critical junction in the life of a young person, Kaye says. While there must be consequences for minor crimes, she says, the goal needs to be intervention that prevents escalation. “If we drop them, we’re putting them on a path to prison,” she says. “And our prisons are already filled.”

A taste of Asia in the midst of Fairport Bistro Han PERINTON HILLS SHOPPING CENTER, FAIRPORT 223-7333, BISTROHAN.COM MONDAY-THURSDAY 11 A.M.-9 P.M., FRIDAY-SATURDAY 11 A.M.-9:30 P.M., SUNDAY 4-9 P.M. [ REVIEW ] BY LAURA REBECCA KENYON
The first items arriving to our table from Bistro Han’s kitchen were the braised pork belly steamed buns ($5). Two to an order, perched on a small plate, these were fit-inthe-palm-of-your-hand-sized sandwiches: thick slabs of browned pork encased in snowy, white dough. The pork belly and the belly of the bun were painted lightly with hoisin sauce and topped with scallions and shards of peanuts. A burst of flavors and senses exploded with the first bite: Wonder Bread softness; unctuous and fatty pork; caramelized sweetness; sharp oniony greenness; salty, peanuty crunch. Conversation at the table halted. These were too good for us to keep talking, too good not to focus all our attention on the food.
We ordered some more. If the only delicious item on Bistro Han’s menu was the pork belly bun, it still would be worth the trip. Luckily, however, there are lots of dishes that beg to be sampled and savored -- the goal of the owners (who wish to remain publically anonymous). “We like to cook the food the way we eat it,” writes one of the co-owners and moderator of Bistro Han’s Facebook page in a private message. “It’s authentic and traditional cooking that we like to share.” It’s a little surprising to find such quality, and
dedication to quality, in a shopping plaza. Neighboring a nail-art studio, bank, and gym, Bistro Han is unassuming from the outside. But once inside, it becomes clear that the restaurant is serious about providing a good dining experience to its customers. The dining room is long and narrow. The palette is stark: charcoal grays and soft whites are punctuated by nail-polish-red Chinese characters translating to “Han.” Wispy paper chandeliers hang from the ceiling, drawing the eye up and around to a long chalkboard mural. Spare and abstract, the chalk lines suggest water and steam swirling around
a piping hot bowl of noodles. The effect is understated and calm, perhaps to help focus diners’ attention on the food. All your attention - and time and appetite - can be spent lingering over the small-plates menu. While there aren’t carts wheeled around the room as in a dim sum-only establishment, those flavors and that style can still be found at Bistro Han. The cumin beef ($5) marries plump hunks of flank steak with cumin and chili pepper. It’s like a deconstructed Tex-Mex chili, but with flavors that are purer and more evocative. Tidy squares of pepper flakes add heat and beauty to the beef, coloring the ends of wooden chopsticks a sunset orange. Mini cuttlefish ($5) are gingery with a spicy hit, thanks to Szechuan peppercorn oil. There’s a touch of smokiness, almost as if from a flame’s char, but there’s no visual evidence of fire applied to the fish. Legs are present — and dangle jauntily from the end of a fork. Roasted duck ($8) is finger-licking delicious. Chopped into two-inch pieces, the soft skin and yielding meat wrap around the bones, demanding full attention and dexterous fingers. Roll the each piece in the
with crisp bottoms, a mild pork filling, and a vinegary dipping sauces that balance out the dumplings’ slight sweetness. Even the crab rangoon ($4 for six), not something I typically like, is done well at Bistro Han. It’s light, crunchy, and creamy, and paired with a mango-chili dipping sauce that starts sweet but leaves a subtle tingle on the tongue. To cleanse the palate before moving on, eat the daikon radish ($3). It’s crunchy and fresh like a fall apple but is sweet and sour, not sweet and green. Elsewhere on the menu are larger plates, some with the familiar American take on Chinese cuisine, and others that remain truer to their origins. Spicy General Chicken ($11) falls firmly into the former camp but, like the crab rangoon, is prepared with more thought, care, and flavor than in many other Asian establishments. It’s made with chicken that manages to be both white and moist — not the easiest task to manage in the kitchen. The dish’s sauce, which coats each piece of chicken, is a little sweet, a little spicy, and pretty much everything you could want from a plate of General Tso’s chicken. The Tangy Sesame Chicken ($11) is similarly prepared, and tempting. It leaves the spice of the General Chicken behind, but the sesame seeds add a toasty nuttiness. More traditional items, made with an emphasis on offering “healthy, traditional Chinese meals” are found under the menu’s “House Specials.” They include gingerscallion cod ($13) and Spicy Chuan Jiao Pork ($9). The cod is mild and subtle, with a slightly spongy mouthfeel; carrots, snow peas, and mushrooms add depth. But it all takes a backseat to the occasional slices of thin ginger, which add pops of bracing freshness. The pork is fiery and fragrant, tender and smoky. Brightly colored carrots and peppers attract the eye and perk up the dish. My visits to Bistro Han only scratched the surface of what’s offered; even when I brought several guests, there was only so much we could taste at one sitting. There’s still crispy squid to eat, Tom Yum soup to sip, and Dan Dan noodles to slurp — and three other varieties of steamed buns to taste. I’ll be back.

The Seabreezers performed Saturday, September 28, at Skylark Lounge. PHOTO BY FRANK DE BLASE
You ever see a show so good you lose track of time? Me too. And it happened Friday night. I missed The US OH! Show that was part of the Fringe Festival at MuCCC. Now, I know what you’re thinking: But Frank, there were burlesque dancers. Boobs and legs and come-hither and all that. What gives? Hillbilly boogie done right, that’s what gives. The plan was to poke my head in Abilene for a minute — just a minute — to check out Chuck Mead and his Grassy Knoll Boys. What I saw was a full-octane rockin’ hillbilly wingding to-do. Perched beneath a hat that looked like Junior Samples (saaa-lute!) had sat on it, Mead and his boys had the place boilin’ and hoppin’. The band swung and switched it up effortlessly from swing to two-step to an awesome flipped-time push beat that had the crowd going nuts and musicians like Dang’s Tim Clark vowing to go home and burn their instruments. It was about then that I realized it was 10:30
p.m. and there were women nearby bumping and grinding. And I wasn’t there to see them. Rochester is hopelessly land-locked, and when the surf is up, the waves… well, it’s a far cry from the opening to the original “Hawaii Five-O.” Don’t tell that to The Isotopes. Don’t tell that to The Tombstone Hands. And now, l don’t tell that to The Seabreezers, either. This relatively new surf band on the scene has built quite a following with its Ventures-infused fun-in-the sun, instrumental boogie. I caught the band at Skylark Saturday night and though I was on a pinball losing streak, the band kicked my ass with Dick Dale, Ventures, and Ramones selections. The band was tons of fun all around, though I think it should probably stick to instrumentals, or agree on a key when it comes to singing. So the sangin’ needs some work, but the twangin’ was righteous, rambunctious, and raunchy. Surf ’s up, land ho.

Music “I think the rock stuff is a bit simpler than the stuff I was doing before,” he says. “Most people know me from a funk/ soul/jazz background, even though Filthy Funk did some rock stuff. And when I sat down to write songs for this, it kind of felt like a return to my roots, which was bands like Zeppelin, Cream, The Yardbirds, Hendrix. And I found myself feeling much more comfortable, writing songs with my guitar, playing a simple chord and just kind of going from there.”

John Viviani certainly knows his way around a fingerboard. You’ll blow out your eyeballs trying to get a bead on his fleet digits as the music expands your ears and mind. The Rochester guitarist is better known and responsible for the sophisticated drive behind the funked-up, jazzified jump of the now-disbanded Filthy Funk. Viviani led the band’s get-up-andget-down crusade for roughly 10 years, but found himself getting comfy, relaxed in his own talent and ability to challenge himself. “I’m known mainly as a guitar player,” Viviani says. “I’ve been playing around town for years. When Filthy Funk wrapped up, I wanted to do something different and I had always kept singing at arm’s length. I had always found someone else to do that. I had only focused on the guitar.” So he reached back into his initial rock roots for material and decided to sing, 14 CITY OCTOBER 2-8, 2013
not as a default, but as a trip to a frontier he hadn’t set foot on (or opened his mouth in) — and to get that old creative uneasiness and discomfort back. That led to Viviani’s new outfit, Blue Falcon, and its sterling debut EP, “First Flight.” “First Flight” bristles with an understated intensity clearly based around the guitar’s initial hook. The disc opens with the ominous laying-in-wait slow groove of “Slow Drag” before moving into the minor-keyed minimalism of “Telling Lies.” By the time “Growing Up American,” with its self-deprecating jingoistic lyricism, starts to spin, the band is hitting on all eight. “Internet Celebrity” is pure power pop and the closer “See Ya Self ” is a forgotten soul classic that never was. Vocally speaking, Viviani doesn’t sing like
the guy in the band who lost the coin toss. His vocal ease is a perfect fit, even for a newbie. “I was like, ‘Man, I gotta give this a try’. So I took a couple of vocal lessons. It was a new thing for me to explore, a new challenge,” he says. Often the voice gets dismissed with musicians in the band winding up with
mic duty by default. “It’s a different instrument,” says Viviani. “I have gained a lot of respect for it. There’s no doubt about it, it’s the original instrument, besides beating on stuff with sticks.” Viviani’s background being strapped to a guitar helped him translate, decipher, and adjust. “I think the guitar helped me a lot as far as melodies and having a sense of pitch, my intonation,” he says. “It definitely helped. There are so many aspects to the voice, the technique involved, and the aspects of tone and all the different shades. When you write a song you have to figure out how to sing it and how to get in character for that song.” Viviani’s still a bit bashful about it, even at home. “As long as no one’s around when I’m recording it, fine,” he says. “If the wife’s upstairs and I’m working on something, I tend to be more reserved. I like the fact that it makes me a little nervous, because with the guitar I was comfortable.” So Viviani, along with drummer Devon Tramell and bassist Ben Stephanus, set out on the Blue Falcon odyssey, clutching his guitar and a microphone while adjusting his approach and defining his identity without simplifying or dumbing down, as some might assume.
Blue Falcon clearly isn’t a dumbing down of Viviani’s extensive riff and chops vocabulary but rather the addition of a more immediate aggression and dynamic edge. It packs more of a direct wallop. Still, taking on this new project required a little letting go for the guitarist. “When you’ve been in a band for a long time,” he says, “you’ve got a network of people you’re really tight with and comfortable with, and you have a lot of chemistry, you can bounce ideas off them… This project came back down to me starting from scratch and having to rely on myself to some extent in order to finish these songs. I think that it’s been good for me.” For fans of Viviani’s work, there’s still plenty for them here. Blue Falcon isn’t a radical about-face departure or detour. Besides, Viviani still gets his funk fix in the cover band Shine. “I’m not looking at this as I’m not playing funk/soul music anymore,” he says. “This is exciting and interesting enough to me that I feel like I’m going to be doing this for a while. Even though this started out as a blues-rock thing, I think there’s going to be room for those other [funk/jazz] influences. Over time, once I’ve gotten more independence playing while singing, I think some those influences will come back. The people that were into Filthy Funk, I think there’s something for them here with Blue Falcon. And I think a lot of them are finding that. The people that were into the hip-hop end of Filthy Funk, that aspect of it, maybe can’t connect.” Perhaps they should embrace the pioneer wonder and un-ease that Blue Falcon preaches. “Anything you get comfortable with for too long, you get stagnant,” Viviani says. “It’s like eating the same cereal for breakfast every morning. I don’t want to have Chex ever morning.”

How many performers have starred in a film like “Boobsville Cabaret” and recorded a Wanda Jackson tribute album? I’ll go out on a limb and say one: Candye Kane. Kane’s oeuvre is the stuff of which sitcoms are made. Before she was an actress in the Golden Age of Porn, Kane was accepted into the University of Southern California’s junior opera program. She quickly decided against this path and became a somewhat prominent figure in the early 80s punk scene, starting several country punk outfits. Kane eventually shed the dog collar after discovering the gritty blues of artists such as Etta James and Bessie Smith. Now she’s become one of the most recognizable voices (and faces) in blues and jazz today. Candye Kane performs Wednesday, October 9, 8 p.m. at Abilene Bar & Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way, $8-$10, abilenebarandlounge.com. — BY DAVID YOCKEL, JR. The Swooners.

In the spirit of angry and edgy punk, like The Buzzcocks, The Dickies, or even Stiff Little Fingers, The Spits play it classic, lean, and raw.

AMERICANA | DAVID WAX MUSEUM
Boston-based duo David Wax Museum is not just an Americana band, but a Mexo-Americana band, borrowing heavily from the Mexican tradition. The duo cites folk legends such as Dylan, Cohen, and Tom Waits as major influences to its sound; while member Suz Slezak even cites classical and Irish music as having been part of her musical development. With the onset on the album “Knock Knock Get Up” this past year, the duo further developed its ability to explore and combine different, and even opposing, musical qualities.

Ad Hoc presents “Songs My Mum Used to Sing.” Doesn’t that just say it all? The minute someone with any English or Irish connection hears “Mum,” we’re taken into a small, cozy kitchen, potatoes peeling, and a Cadbury’s biscuit jar to sneak into and get scolded. Ad Hoc’s new artistic directors Boon Hua Lien and Matt Osika have scheduled a lovely concert, complete with selections from Benjamin Britten’s “Folksong Arrangements” (with texts of the British Isles and W.B. Yeats) and “Lincolnshire Posy” by Percy Grainger. Both works will feature wind/piano octet orchestration by Osika. Ad Hoc performs Saturday, October 5 (7:30 p.m.) at Christ Church, 141 East Ave, $5, and again on Wednesday, October 23 (noon) at Hochstein School of Music & Dance, 50 North Plymouth Avenue, free (also airing live on WXXI’s “Live from Hochstein” series), 474-2420, adhoc-music.org. — BY PALOMA CAPANNA [ JAZZ ]

Pot references “History in the Making VII: Ceramic Traditions, Contemporary Objects” THROUGH NOVEMBER 3 FIREHOUSE GALLERY AT GENESEE POTTERY, 713 MONROE AVE. 244-1730, GENESEEARTS.COM MONDAY-FRIDAY 10 A.M.-5 P.M., THURSDAY 10 A.M.-9:30 P.M., SATURDAY NOON-5 P.M. | FREE [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY
Creative work doesn’t exist in a vacuum, and artists often draw influence and inspiration from history and from the world around them. The work presented in the Firehouse Gallery at Genesee Pottery’s current show, the 7th Annual “History in the Making” exhibit, offers a sample of contemporary vessels, figurative works, and decorative objects that were created with some influence from past ideas, aesthetics, and methods. Each year, the folks at Genesee Pottery place an ad with Ceramics Monthly to call for art for the “History in the Making” exhibit. This year, 26 entries were selected for the show by Jean Schallenbarger, associate 20 CITY OCTOBER 2-8, 2013
professor at School for American Crafts at RIT, who juried the show only from images of work sent in from all across the country with names and artist statements withheld. Genesee Center was proud to learn that works by two of its current artist residents, Sarah Heitmeyer and Katie Carey, as well as Genesee Pottery studio manager, Peter Pincus, were juried into the show. Each of the works is accompanied by an artist statement that explains influences and inspiration, and often includes images of sample objects that influenced their works. Pincus’ sleek work is represented here with two entries: “Cup Set” is a pair of colorblock-striped vessels, the painting contrasting with the organic slump at the bases, and “All or Nothing,” a duo of flattened bulb shapes standing upright and painted with a spectrum of grays on one side and colors on the other. The provided info states that the artist’s primary inspiration was the solid, bold works of color theorist and Bauhaus Professor Josef Albers. In particular, “Cup Set” was inspired by a wall drawing by Sol LeWitt, and “All or Nothing” was drawn from an Emilio Pucci dress, which were both influenced by Albers. Genesee Pottery director Kate Whorton says that the show always offers some
element from history that she hadn’t encountered before. This time, the gem of human culture came in the form of “Doctor’s Doll: Muscular System,” by Carrie Anne Parks of Alma, Michigan. Parks drew her influence from the Chinese “doctor dolls,” which served as patient surrogates in the 17th through 19th centuries, when decorum demanded that a female patient point out the source of an ailment to a doctor rather than allow him to examine her body directly. The full-grown female figure is perhaps the size of an infant, and reclining coyly on a wooden stand atop a pedestal. She is glazed white and marked all over in blue, detailed brushwork that denotes her muscular system, and coated with a hard, glossy glaze, “rendered safely decorative and impervious to touch,” per the artist statement. Another figurative work included in the mix is “Busted,” Elmira, New York, artist Colleen McCall’s child-high portrait of her son that borrows elements from a Greek image of “an idolized trophy child that appears among illustrations of force and destruction” in the Parthenon. The concept of forcing a child to learn self-control amid such uncivilized behavior is an ironic one, then, and especially now in an age where children
that vary vastly in style and purpose. Miami, Florida-based artist Daniel Listwan’s striking “Biohazard Jasperware: Black Basalt Edition” series is an homage Josiah Wedgwood’s Black Basalt line. Listwan’s set of seven vessels resemble the influence in their velvety black surfaces and detailed relief pictures. But instead of depicting the neoclassical scenes, the gods and heroes of Wedgwood’s wares, Listwan’s subjects are skulls and magnified, fearsome life forms, including ebola, anthrax, yersinia pestis (Black Death), H5N1, and other biohazards, and the vessels themselves are tools of scientific research that might be seen in a lab. Tony Wright, of Mobile, Alabama, created his “Olmec Face Jug” to demonstrate to his students a folk pottery tradition with roots in the Southeastern United States. The artist is also intrigued by stylized figurative sculptures of the Olmec culture in ancient Mexico, “several stone-carved figures depicting a shaman going through a process of transformation from human to jaguar,” says Wright in the provided statement. The resulting vessel is a highly glossy, bronze head with cat ears, ferocious fangs, and an expression that seems to say, “Go ahead…steal my whiskey.” Dallas, Texas-based artist Brian Molanphy’s “Bowl” nods to the delicately marbled clay wares developed by the French Moulin brothers in about 1776, which derived their decorative element not from the glaze but from the complex patterning worked into the clay body. Molanphy’s beautiful, simple vessel is crawling with swirls of brown and white clay, and finished with a transparent glaze. Pottery resident Katie Carey’s “105 Bowls” is not what it sounds like — enough stoneware for a small community takes up the space that one large punch bowl might. The artist’s statement says she wished to “strip the bowl of its inherent association in order to re-examine the simplistic form that has been passed down for nearly 10,000 years.” Carey created dozens of bowls on the wheel, squished them, and pressed them together into a rippling half-sphere mounted on the wall, almost resembling a sun-bleached sea anemone — or the potter’s equivalent of a writer’s balled-up and cast-away pages.

ART | “MEMORY THEATRE”
The Memorial Art Gallery continues to celebrate its centennial with the new exhibit, “The Memory Theatre,” opening Wednesday, October 9. The exhibit examines the ways in which memory functions in the structuring of personal and cultural identities while also taking a look at the role of the museum as a repository for memory — a “memory theater.” A museum exhibit that examines the museum, you say? So meta. The exhibit will feature work by Barton Benes, David Maisel, Will Barnet, and others, and will run through December 29 in the MAG’s Grand Gallery. There is also a member’s opening party on Sunday, October 6, which will feature a lecture by Judith G. Levy, the creator of the exhibit’s “memory cloud” installation. Admission is the standard entrance fee for the MAG ($5$12). The museum is located at 500 University Ave. For more information visit mag.rochester.edu. — BY COLIN MCCOY Agencies serve tens of thousands with special needs each year. 4424102 x8944. alsigl.org.

THEATER | “RACE”
The riveting drama “Race” comes from critically acclaimed writer David Mamet. The play tells the story of two white lawyers working to defend a wealthy white executive accused of raping a black woman. The racial tensions that lurk under the surface come to a boiling point over the course of the trial as the play investigates the still-volatile subject of interracial relations in America. Limelight Productions presents “Race” Thursday, October 3, through Saturday, October 12, at Multi-use Community Cultural Center (MuCCC), 142 Atlantic Ave. Shows take place Thursday-Saturday 8 p.m., with a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday, October 6.

contemporary guy flick, but later becomes something quite different. (R), WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY In a voiceover accompanying a montage of JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT the items, the actor tells the audience his major NOW PLAYING interests in life — his car, his apartment, his body, his family, his buddies, his church, and [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA pornography. The movie sticks faithfully to that list, showing numerous shots and scenes of the Joseph Gordon-Levitt might possibly regard protagonist, Jon, driving, cleaning his place, “Don Jon” as his Orson Welles achievement working out, dining with his Italian family, — after all, he wrote, directed, and stars in going to Mass on Sundays, and most important, the movie, a Hollywood trifecta. The picture watching pornography. Although a terrific success may perhaps rank somewhat below “Citizen with women — his victorious forays in nightclubs Kane” in quality, but we all know that earn him the sobriquet of the title — Jon standards everywhere have declined. Rather describes, in most graphic terms, exactly why he than an American epic, it begins as an ordinary needs the videos he watches on his computer, even directly after sex with one of his conquests. Jon confesses his sins weekly, enumerating how many times he masturbated since his last confession, and of course continuing the practice. Despite the movie’s extremely foul language and its outrageous subject, it manages quite a few laughs, most of them generated not by Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Scarlett Johansson in “Don Jon.” PHOTO COURTESY

his addiction but by the weekly family dinners, where his father (Tony Danza) shouts and swears and his mother (Glenne Headly) constantly nags him about finding a girl and settling down. When to the amazement of his buddies, Jon actually falls in love with Barbara (Scarlett Johansson) a flashy, pneumatic blonde, his life changes. When she discovers him enjoying his pornography after they make love, he promises to abandon his practice, enroll in a night course, and become a better person. In the class, naturally, he breaks his promise and watches porn on his phone, capturing the attention of an older classmate, Esther (Julianne Moore), who explains the meaning of his addiction. Although Jon’s problem, which he does not regard as a problem, surely exists, his version of it seems entirely preposterous; surely pornography acts as a substitute for sex rather than something better than actual sex. The fact of his addiction nicely defines his utter narcissism but never suggests any particular reasons for it — when a healthy young man finds masturbation more satisfying than intercourse, something seems weirdly wrong, which even Esther never stresses in her analysis. With the entrance of Esther, ”Don Jon” changes from a guy flick to something very like a chick flick, presumably the intention of the writerdirector-star; the transformation hardly convinces, however, even when the cinematography moves from bright and hard-edged to soft and fuzzy

On the right track “Rush” (R), DIRECTED BY RON HOWARD NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
and Jon’s narration moves from obscenities to emotional statements. The change strikes a false and sentimental note in the picture’s silly, raunchy tone, as unreal as most of the rest of the work. Although Jon drives a flashy muscle car, lives in a roomy, attractive apartment, spends most of his nights in clubs on search-anddestroy missions with his buddies, we never see him making the money to support his happy hedonism. He claims to earn his living as a bartender, a job the movie never shows at a place we never see, which somehow allows him to enjoy the rich activity of his night life. One of the several distasteful notes in “Don Jon,” the presentation of an Italian American workingclass family, here in New Jersey, echoes the familiar Hollywood stereotypes, following the exaggerations of gangster comedies and films like “Lovers and Other Strangers,” and “Saturday Night Fever.” The movie might entertain fans of the obnoxious television “reality” show, “Jersey Shore,” which incidentally never inspired the protests that followed the popularity of “The Sopranos.” Tony Danza provides most of the funny lines, most of which grow out of his simple, bad-tempered obscenities. Given its subject, its language, its graphic descriptions, the dozens of sex scenes both on Jon’s computer and in his bedroom, “Don Jon” richly deserves its R rating and actually qualifies as a kind of pornography itself. Its view of porn, oddly, amounts to its own kind of sentimentality, an odd thing in a purported guy flick.
I’ve always considered Ron Howard a talented director, but never one who gets me excited when I see his name attached to a movie. I think it’s because, while he is responsible for a lot of good movies (some, like “Apollo 13,” I’d even call great), he’s also responsible for cinematic travesties like “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” Now Howard reteams with his “Frost/Nixon” screenwriter Peter Morgan for the thrilling and stylish “Rush,” the story of the real-life 1970’s rivalry between British Formula One racer James Hunt and Austrian driver Niki Lauda, and delivers one of his best films. The film begins with the two men meeting early on in their careers while in the Formula Three racing division, and they take an instant dislike to one another. Hunt (Chris Hemsworth, “Thor”) is a preening, charismatic rock star of a driver who’s prone to taking risks on the track while boozing and womanizing his way through life off the track. Lauda (Daniel Brühl, “Inglourious Basterds”), on the other hand, is self-disciplined,

determined, and decidedly prickly (he’s described as an asshole by several characters throughout the course of the film). Despite his dangerous occupation, he avoids unnecessary risk at all costs. Both men are incredible drivers, and soon secure themselves high-profile sponsorships, Lauda with Ferrari and Hunt with British car manufacturer McLaren. They rise through the ranks, and it’s not long before they’re the top-seeded competitors in Formula One racing, ultimately leading up to the 1976 Japan Grand Prix where they compete against one another for the world championship title. Though I’m sure the film has exaggerated their differences for dramatic effect, Hunt and Lauda’s frequently antagonistic relationship ultimately pushing them both into greatness makes for a fantastically entertaining story. The actors playing the two men fully inhabit their roles, each turning in exceptional performances. If he hasn’t already, Chris Hemsworth proves he’s a movie star with this role. His magnetic screen presence comes in handy for Hunt’s larger-than-life personality, but he also finds the character’s hidden vulnerability. He’s also, as the archival footage at the end of the film proves, a dead ringer for the real James Hunt. Brühl has the more challenging role in the film, making us care about a character who is at times distinctly unlikable. The handsome actor is fitted with a prosthetic overbite to echo Lauda’s somewhat rat-like appearance, and despite these obstacles, he manages to win us over. Both actors’ work is crucial to the film, which spends just as much time with the men off the track as it does on. Lauda’s relationship with his wife, played by Alexandra Maria Lara, is handled quite well. Though she does inevitably end up worriedly looking on from the sidelines (though she never asks her husband to give up racing), their scenes together offer a unique depiction of the marriage that feels
true to the script’s depiction of Lauda: all business and serious-minded nearly to a fault. They clearly love one another, but it’s not a warm-and-fuzzy sort of love. Olivia Wilde plays Hunt’s wife, but unfortunately for the actress, her role doesn’t really add much of anything to the plot. Going into the film, I knew less than nothing about Formula One racing, so I admired the way Morgan’s script gives just enough information for the audience to understand and follow what’s happening without resorting to having a character actually sit down and provide an expository infodump about the rules of the sport. The film doesn’t spend a second on anything that’s unnecessary to the plot, so the pace never lags. There’s a confidence to Howard’s direction of “Rush” that feels unlike any of his previous work. He often has an impulse toward schmaltzy sentimentality, but outside of an occasional clunky moment, he manages to sidestep that tendency almost entirely. The film’s racing sequences are thrillingly staged and exhilarating to watch — when crashes occur, you truly feel them. The entire film looks fantastic. Anthony Dod Mantle’s stunning cinematography is equally as invaluable to the success of the film as either of its stars. Aping the visual style of 70’s film stock, with its overly saturated, high contrast, grainy look, the film appears as though it could have been filmed in the era it’s set. Mantle’s work, along with the Daniel P. Hanley and Mike Hill’s editing of the film, deserve to be remembered come Oscar time. I also appreciated that the film doesn’t overdo it on the period trappings, especially the soundtrack, which isn’t just a jukebox of 70’s rock nostalgia. A welcome change of pace for its director, “Rush” is a heart-pounding action film fused with a satisfying human drama that delivers on the sensation promised in its title.

Parkside Living in Highland 80 Reservoir Avenue Looking for a secluded, park-like environment that also features all the conveniences of city living? You’ll find it here in the charming Dutch Colonial Revival house located at 80 Reservoir Avenue in the city’s Mt. Hope/Highland neighborhood. With Highland Park and Warner Castle’s “Sunken Garden” as its next door neighbor, this distinctive 1911 residence boasts a spacious, three-story interior that is enhanced by many architect-designed features. Constructed during the early 20th century, this brick-and-shingle- clad house reflects the era from the 1880s to 1920s, when Americans celebrated “all things Dutch.” Nicknamed “Holland Mania,” this movement featured art and architecture that took many of its cues from historic Dutch design. The distinctive gambrel roof of this house reflects details found on early Dutch houses from the 17th century in the Hudson Valley. From the large and inviting front porch, step into the spacious entry hall, with elegant staircase, leaded glass windows, inglenook bench, and arched entrances into the living room and kitchen. Hardwood oak floors and extensive wood trim and crown moldings are immediately evident throughout the interior. The gracious living room includes a Colonial Revival style mantel and fireplace, with tile hearth, built-in bookshelves and large picture window. With ample windows and distinctive details, the dining room features a built-in corner cabinet and breakfast nook, which overlooks the backyard. The spacious, eat-in kitchen retains the original pantry area, wood cabinetry, and rear porch overlooking the backyard.
Upstairs are three bedrooms, each with generously sized closets. The master bedroom extends across the front of the house and has two large closets. A door from the master bedroom leads out onto the open sleeping porch, which is located above the front porch. A full bath completes the second-floor layout. Continuing upstairs to the third floor reveals a huge living space that features ample storage areas and a high-ceilinged, finished room with leaded glass doors, which could be used as a fourth bedroom, playroom, home office, or studio. The large basement of the house features utilitarian areas for washer, dryer, storage and workspace, as well as a large recreation room with tile floor and knotty pine walls. Located adjacent to Highland Park, this lovely, early 20th century house is remarkable for the many original details that remain and that await a new owner whose rehabilitation will reveal the outstanding beauty of this singular property. The tree shaded lot includes numerous deciduous and coniferous shrubs and trees, which afford many opportunities for an enthusiastic gardener. With 2,368 square feet, the house at 80 Reservoir Ave. is listed at $179,900. For more information, contact Richard Sarkis at Nothnagle Realtors at 585-756-7281. by Cynthia Howk Cynthia is the Architectural Research Coordinator at The Landmark Society.

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 servicecapacity 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

Legal Ads > page 34 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. 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. Projectgenerated 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 noise-sensitive 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-foot-high 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 “With its neatly cut lawns and luscious tropical vegetation,” wrote a BBC News reporter in July, Miracle Village, Fla., is an “idyllic rural community” of 200 residents -- about half of whom are registered sex offenders, attracted to the settlement near Lake Okeechobee because laws and ordinances elsewhere in Florida harshly restrict where they can live (e.g., not within a half-mile of a school or park). Incumbent residents might have been apprehensive in 2009 when a pastor started the local rehabilitation ministry (one even called it a “nightmare on Elm Street”), but since then, no one could recall a single impropriety involving an offender, and lately, 10 to 20 more applications arrive each week (screened to keep out diagnosed pedophiles and those with a history of drugs or violence).
Can’t Possibly Be True
— Dana Carter’s debut as principal of Calimesa Elementary School in California’s San Bernardino County was quite inauspicious, as parents quickly objected to his August policy of requiring kids to drop to one knee when addressing him. One parent said her daughter was forced to kneel while awaiting his attention and then to rise only when he lifted his arms. Carter said he would discontinue the policy and insisted he had instituted it for “safety” and not because he imagined himself as royalty. — Many consumers already distrust food imports from China, but the U.S. Department of Agriculture nonetheless announced recently (and “quietly,” according to NPR) that it
would exempt four Chinese companies altogether from USDA inspections of their processed chicken exports. The changes are part of the department’s money-saving streamlining that also cuts back domestic regulation -- proposals that have already drawn criticism from the Government Accountability Office because they would replace many on-site USDA inspectors with employees of the food-processing plants themselves. — It was a tough sell for performance artists Doug Melnyk and Ian Mozdzen to defend their controversial show at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival in July. (Wrote one reviewer: “What I saw (on the stage) were not one, not two, but three mayonnaise enemas. (I) do not need to see any more mayonnaise enemas for the rest of my lifetime.”) Explained Melnyk, to a Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reporter in July, if all you’re trying to do is “figure out what people want and you make it for them, that’s not art. ... (Y)ou’re just a shoemaker.”
(1) A 40-year-old woman was killed in a near-head-on collision in August in Spring Lake, Fla., while joy-riding on a back road at night on her dirt bike. She was accidentally hit by her husband, who was also joy-riding, in his all-terrain vehicle, and who also died. (2) A 50-year-old man in Berne, N.Y., was killed in August when, driving an all-terrain vehicle, he virtually decapitated himself on nearly invisible wire strung across a road as one of a series of booby traps he had installed to protect his marijuana plants.
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 32 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Go out and have fun. Getting too attached to anyone will lead to jealousy, uncertainty and an inability to get things done. You are better off seeing what’s out there and enjoying the company of those interested in sharing common interests. Fickleness will lead to an unsavory situation. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): A passionate encounter is in the stars, but before you decide to become too intimate, you are best to play the waiting game and find out what intention the person you are attracted to has, if any. Too much too fast can lead to an empty offer.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You are likely to run into trouble if you fall for someone you meet through work. Protect your reputation and your emotional well-being. The impression you are given isn’t likely to be accurate. A secret affair will develop if you are too trusting. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’ll have no problem attracting attention. Love is on the rise, and getting up close and personal with someone special is likely if you get out and socialize. Don’t discount someone who comes from a different background. Someone unique will make you happy.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Keep your mind on what’s important and your emotions under control. Someone will read more into your flirting than what you are offering, leading to an awkward and difficult situation. Don’t lead on anyone or make a promise that you don’t plan to keep. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Call the shots and make plans. The more control you exhibit, the more likely you are to attract someone eager to be your sidekick. Share personal information and your intentions, and you will mesmerize someone who has been searching for someone just like you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your indecisiveness will work against you when it comes to personal relationships. If you cannot make up your mind or make a commitment, you are likely to send a message that tells anyone interested in you that you are not in the market for a long-term relationship. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Open up about your likes and dislikes, and share your interests and concerns. You won’t please everyone you meet, but someone who is as experimental and willing to travel down a unique and passionate path will take you up on your offer and add to your suggestions.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Be careful what you wish for when it comes to passionate encounters. You may think you are a wild and aggressive lover, but you are likely to meet someone who is willing to give you a run for your money. Protect your body, mind and soul. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Focus on the partner who offers a deep, passionate, mysterious persona, and you will have met your match. Don’t waste time or you may give someone else the opportunity to make a move, missing out on the chance to find everlasting love. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Double-check motives when
it comes to love. What you want will be a far cry from what you get if you lower your standards. It’s better to be alone a little bit longer than to settle for someone who cannot hold your interest or make you happy. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Look for unusual pastimes and destinations, and you will find love. What you have to offer will intrigue someone who is looking for a lifestyle change. Make an emotional decision that will lead to a solid commitment and an interesting new beginning. Live, love and laugh.
