‘Drug-free’ plan: pro and cons
On City Councilmember Adam McFadden’s proposal for drug-free zones in Rochester (News Blog):
I cannot fully express how bad an idea I think this is. And it’s illegal – not just on constitutional grounds, but I believe an illegal use of zoning codes. DAVE ATIAS
What a great idea! Adam McFadden is a visionary leader. FRED MULDOON
How about some real solutions, like ending the Drug War and a serious conversation on ending the school-to-prison-pipeline? DREW LANGDON
The last thing we need is another war on petty, street-level drug dealers. We know what that has reaped over the past four or five decades: jails and prisons filled with mainly black and Hispanic youth, many of whom are literally slinging drugs as a means of survival. In many cases they have little to no education, no job skills, and often, no hope – while the real culprits behind the multitrillion dollar, illegal drug industry continue to go free. It IS time for a war on drugs (a real one): on the big-shot, super-wealthy, mafia-types who ship drugs into the harbors and fly them onto the private airstrips of this corrupt nation, by the ton-loads. How is it that young children in our neighborhoods can tell you where the illegal drug spots are but the Rochester Police Department, Monroe County Sheriffs, New York State Police, FBI, CIA, ATF, Secret Service, Homeland Security, and other law enforcement agencies that we 2 CITY

have probably never even heard of can’t seem to find the illegal drugs that flow through Rochester and other urban communities like water flows from High Falls? I would propose as an alternative that y’all (city and county leaders) help pull people together who are sick-and-tired-of-being-sickand-tired of our neighborhoods being flooded with illegal drugs and weapons, and develop a comprehensive plan by which we make a concerted demand that those listed above do more to solve the problem now – by going to the root, as opposed to continuing to fiddle around the edges. We need a movement. HOWARD EAGLE
Assessing the D&C
While I completely agree with the principles you articulated on what makes for good journalism, I completely disagree with your overall negative assessment of the newly launched and designed Democrat and Chronicle (“The New, ‘More,’ D&C,” Urban Journal). In a time when so many local newspapers are folding, shrinking, or eliminating any semblance of deep reporting, we should applaud the D&C for its expanded commitment to quality local investigative journalism, its expanded coverage of New York state politics, and the smart decision to focus on Rochester innovation and business. Its inclusion of USA Today is a logical move too, since due to the Internet, national news has become more a commodity. And while there is a downside to relying on a single publisher’s reporters, reading stories from Gannet’s journalists is far better than the D&C plugging in prepackaged national wire service stories, as many other local newspapers now must do to save on reporter salaries. Yes, some of the local stories highlighted on the front page seem minor and are given disproportionate attention. And the new editorial page design leaves something to be desired. But these are quibbles. The bottom line is that the D&C has survived the very treacherous transition to the
new digital media world – and did so while expanding its commitment to local, regional, and investigative reporting. And that’s a good thing for the community. ROBERT BERKMAN
I’m inclined to be more supportive of the D&C than you are in your column. I give them credit for experimenting with business model changes that keep the paper in print at all –going all electronic (as many peer newspapers have done) is a sorry capitulation. Perhaps your frustration is more appropriately aimed at the readers, not the publishers. There is no newspaper without readers. To your closing question – what do research scientists, etc., read – I think they are doing what I do: read the New York Times online and subscribe to The Economist, The Atlantic, etc., and skim the D&C for local coverage, including the investigative stuff (which I agree is important and often quite good). I generally don’t bother with USA Today when given free in hotels and I don’t read it now – but USA Today does offer more attractive coverage of nationalinternational news than the D&C has been providing. Maybe, just maybe, more of the readers who don’t seek out more robust coverage will be captured to read a bit more of this kind of news than they did under the old model. KENT GARDNER

ROCHESTER GENERAL ELECTIONS 2013 COVERAGE CONTINUES ON PAGE 6
Still the best candidate for mayor: Tom Richards ENDORSEMENTS BY CITY’S EDITORIAL STAFF
Officially, the campaign for Rochester mayor has narrowed to two candidates: City Council President Lovely Warren, who won the September Democratic primary, and Green Party candidate Alex White. Before the primary, we endorsed incumbent Tom Richards, but Warren won, handily, and she now has the backing of her party for the November 5 general election. Richards is still on the ballot on the Working Families and Independence Party lines, because the deadline has passed for removing his name. A week after his primary loss, however, he announced formally that he was ending his campaign, and he has not been seeking votes as a third-party candidate. We are still convinced that Richards is the far better candidate. He has kept the city financially stable through an exceptionally difficult economic period. He has encouraged new business and residential development. He has worked with employee groups to keep labor costs down and worked with unions and contractors to insure jobs for city residents on public projects. He is experienced, progressive, and pragmatic, and he is uniquely qualified to lead Rochester in this challenging time. For the general election, then, we’ve been faced with a difficult decision: do we endorse Richards, even though he is not campaigning for re-election; endorse someone we feel is not qualified for the job; or simply not endorse? The members of our editorial staff who determine our endorsements have been divided on that question. Some argued for no endorsement at all rather than endorse a candidate who isn’t running. But Richards is on the ballot, and that does give voters a choice. Since we believe strongly that Richards should serve another four years, we are endorsing him. On Alex White: Running for mayor for the second time, White is an energetic, interesting, often entertaining candidate. But he lacks the experience and knowledge that is essential for the mayor of a city Rochester’s size. And while some of his ideas sound appealing, they’re often naïve and based on the thinnest of research. A prime example: He would give the Rochester school district all the money it says it needs, and he says the city could finance the increase by not giving tax incentives to
Experienced, progressive, and pragmatic, Richards is uniquely qualified to lead Rochester in this challenging time.” developers. As much as this newspaper objects to tax incentives, the City of Rochester is in intense competition with its suburbs and with other regions for development. He says that redevelopment at the Midtown Plaza site would have happened without incentives. Where was White during those years when Midtown was emptying out and multiple attempts to lure development led nowhere? Tax incentives don’t last forever, and new development provides new taxes. And it frequently spurs other new development. White says that our inner-city deterioration and street-corner drug sales are the result of giving incentives to developers rather than investing in education and jobs. No, they’re not. They’re the result of sprawl and concentrated poverty, and without new development in the city, those problems will get worse. On Lovely Warren: As we said in our
endorsement of Richards in August, Warren certainly has strengths. She has been a strong advocate for Rochester’s poorest, most vulnerable residents, pushing for better housing, better schools, better neighborhoods, and more jobs. She has pushed for more minority hiring by the police and fire departments, and she personally helped recruit candidates. She has become an eloquent, charismatic public servant, and her primary win was impressive. It does not erase our concerns about her, however. Some of her initiatives will be expensive, and we think she’s naïve about how they can be paid for, given the city’s financial challenges. She wants city government actively involved in education, and her plans to help

South Wedge crime fighters
A day after the Independence Party of Monroe County called for city voters to cast their ballots for Mayor Tom Richards in the general election, the Democrat and Chronicle reported that two prominent city staffers are behind the effort. The D and C says that Gary Walker, the city’s communications director, and Molly Clifford, the city’s director of fire administration, colluded with Independence Party chair Steve Corryn in an attempt to get Richards back into the race. Richards lost the Democratic primary for mayor to City Council President Lovely Warren, but is still on the ballot on the Working Families and Independence lines. Richards hasn’t campaigned, though, and it’s unclear if he would serve even if he won in November.
Some residents of Rochester’s South Wedge are forming an anticrime group to address what they say is poor police response and follow-through, as well as a failure by the local media to report the truth about crime in their neighborhood.

“The people of the South Wedge are left with little recourse or remedy except to organize among ourselves, to track and monitor the frequency and location of violent assaults on our streets, take measures to protect ourselves and, finally, to devise measures that would help prevent their occurrence,” says an invitation to the group’s first meeting. The meeting is later this week. Statistics provided by the Rochester Police Department do not show a surge in what are called “part I crimes,” such as murder, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault. The South Wedge has had three rapes so far this year, 23 robberies, three incidents of aggravated assault, and 20 burglaries.

with previous years, going back to 2008. The exception is burglaries; there were 60 in total last year. But one of the organizers of the South Wedge group says that there’s suspicion that the numbers are underreported. And the group seems to be responding to anecdotal reports of assaults and other confrontations. “Personally, I’m afraid to walk home alone at night,” says Wendy Painting, a group facilitator. “We want to know what we can do. I don’t know if the answer is to drop more cops on the street. I don’t know if the answer is to put more cameras on the street. I almost think it’s not. But information would go a long way.”

As head of the RBA, Bob Duffy would be the face and the voice of Rochester’s business community. Duffy certainly knows the economic and financial topography here, so in that sense, he’s a good match for the RBA. But in the past, his attacks of indecisiveness and impulsivity have been counterproductive.
POLITICS | BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN
The rumor that Bob Duffy will depart the Cuomo administration to head the Rochester Business Alliance when current RBA leader Sandra Parker retires is sprouting legs. Neither Duffy nor Cuomo has done anything to quash the speculation. Instead, Duffy’s refusal to discuss it has stoked the buzz into a near roar. (It’s unclear how Parker’s decision to delay her retirement affects things.) Duffy’s selection as lieutenant governor was likely meant to burnish Cuomo’s appeal upstate. But downstate drives Albany’s machinery and some say that the cognoscente didn’t know how to take this too-tall ex-cop with the nasal “a.” Rochesterians consoled themselves for the loss of Duffy with the knowledge that at least their former mayor would have the governor’s ear — whatever that meant. Duffy’s tenure as Cuomo’s right-hand man hasn’t been particularly remarkable — though it’s tough for a lieutenant governor to stand out. Duffy has been a traveling salesman for Cuomo’s budgets, and he chairs all 10 Regional Economic Development Councils, though the councils’ locally based representatives seem to do the heavy lifting there. Duffy hasn’t hurt Cuomo, either, though his intrusion into Rochester’s mayoral race was ill-conceived — a fact he later acknowledged.
(Duffy told the Democrat and Chronicle in January that Lovely Warren should stay out of the mayor’s race. Warren entered the race anyway and wound up winning the primary Bob Duffy. FILE PHOTO election. And Duffy got dinged for opening his mouth.) As head of the RBA, Duffy would undoubtedly do a lot of courting of investors — a task that he’s very familiar with and for which he is well-suited. He would also be the face and the voice of Rochester’s business community. Duffy certainly knows the economic and financial topography here, so in that sense, he’s a good match for the RBA. But in the past, his attacks of indecisiveness and impulsivity have been counterproductive. Duffy’s relationship with Warren is another question. He has been one of Warren’s strongest supporters, but it’s not clear if his ill-timed remarks about the mayor’s race damaged that bond. If Duffy does get the RBA job and he and Warren are able to mend fences, it could help settle the business community’s stomachs over a possible Warren administration.

GREENS BY JEREMY MOULE Truthfully, Democratic mayoral candidate Lovely Warren doesn’t have much to gain by debating her opponent, the Green Party’s Alex White. With the exception of a few elected officials at the county and state levels, the City of Rochester is a Democratic lock. By agreeing to debate, Warren would elevate White to an equal — a worthy competitor. (Warren has said that she won’t debate White.) But for the local Greens, the whole point of running is to be taken seriously, both by candidates and by voters. “It’s about sending a message to the people of Rochester that we’re legitimate, we’re here, and we’re here to work for you,” White says. And if the party can get at least one candidate elected this year, the Greens say, it’d send an even stronger message. The Green Party of Monroe County’s slate consists of White; City Council candidates David Atias, Drew Langdon, and Dorothy Paige running for three of five open seats; city school board candidate Lori Thomas running for one of three open seats; and Monroe County sheriff candidate Emily Good. Conventional wisdom casts third parties such as the Greens as agitators who exist on the political fringe and can’t really win elections; influencing the debate is the best that they can hope for. But local Greens vehemently reject that thinking. The Greens are running to win, Atias says. And when the candidates are competitive, he says, they force their opponents and the public to pay attention to issues that they may otherwise ignore. The Greens generally focus on topics such as protecting the environment and creating an economic structure that emphasizes communities and local enterprise over the wealthy and over large corporations. This year, local Greens have been particularly critical of the city’s approach to development, especially the tax incentives given to deeppocketed developers to build upscale housing. The Greens also say that they provide inter-party opposition and competition that’s otherwise absent in the City of Rochester. The Greens are running more people for office this year than the GOP, which has fielded few candidates in recent city elections. 6 CITY

In recent local elections, the number of votes received by Green candidates vastly outperformed the party’s enrollment
(This year, Mia Hodgins is running for city school board on the Republican line.) “We are Rochester’s second party, perhaps disproportionate to our membership,” Langdon says. And while the sheriff’s race is countywide, Republican incumbent sheriff Patrick O’Flynn wouldn’t have a challenger if not for Emily Good.

It’s difficult to measure the influence that
the Greens have had on local elections. The media haven’t paid a lot of attention to their campaigns, and the candidates haven’t spent a lot of time courting media attention (although White has held press conferences on education, crime, and other issues). The Greens did get some coverage, however, when City Council was considering selling Midtown Tower to a partnership of Buckingham Properties and Morgan Management for $2. Green candidates protested by showing up at the City Council meeting and making their own offer for the property. (Council went ahead and approved the Buckingham-Morgan sale.) The stunt was part of the Greens’ broader campaign opposing tax breaks and loans for large residential developments. In addition to earning some news coverage, it put the campaigns of Lovely Warren and incumbent mayor Tom Richards in a position where they had to explain or defend the sale. Former Rochester mayor Bill Johnson, a Democrat, says that the Greens do give voters a choice in city elections and that they encourage discussion around issues. Johnson, White, and Richards waged a three-way mayoral race in 2011. During that campaign, White pushed the idea of a municipal power company. Richards didn’t support the idea, but at least the public got to hear the discussion, Johnson says. Johnson says that the Greens field thoughtful candidates who bring solid ideas to their races (though he’s clear that he’s not endorsing them). But Johnson also says that sometimes, the Greens rail against problems without addressing underlying issues. He says that while the Greens have attacked tax incentives for developers, he hasn’t heard specifics about how they’d address vacant properties. (The Greens have
Total votes cast: 46,253 Green Party registration: 179 talked about implementing homesteading programs and creating community gardens to address those issues.)
Some issues raised by the Green candidates
don’t seem to have gained traction with the other candidates in the races or with the public. For example, sheriff’s candidate Good is raising substantial issues related to mass incarceration. Good is a well-known local activist who’s been particularly vocal about police misconduct and accountability. Good entered the public eye after she was arrested while filming a Rochester police officer conducting a traffic stop; the charges were eventually dropped. She’s also been arrested at protests, which means that she’s spent some time — albeit minimal — in the county jail. What she saw was a dehumanizing booking and holding process, she says. For example, she says, one women’s holding cell is directly in front of a deputies’ workstation and has a transparent front. Some women are in jumpsuits and have to strip down to use the toilet’s cell, Good says. Good is also concerned about the medical care at the county’s jail facilities. And she questions why the county has maintained its jail health services contract with Correctional Medical Care. Earlier this year, the Albany Times Union published a lengthy article highlighting ongoing concerns from the state Commission of Corrections about forprofit jail health care companies, including Correctional Medical Care.
The Times Union obtained a state report about a 2009 inmate death at the county jail, which included a recommendation that the county terminate its contract with CMC. But the contract persists, according to CMC’s website. (O’Flynn’s campaign did not respond to requests for comment.) Good says that she also wants the sheriff’s office and the courts to make more use of restorative justice programs. And that she wants to replace the DARE programs in local schools with programs that teach conflict resolution skills. Good says that as sheriff she’d advocate for drug law reform at the state and federal levels. But Good’s campaign has been relatively low-profile. She’s made appearances at forums and events, and has talked to bus riders waiting at stops downtown. But she says that she doesn’t have a large number of volunteers or a significant campaign operation to work on her behalf. “The people who I do manage to talk to, I have really great conversations with the majority of the time,” she says. And Good’s campaign hasn’t had a perceptible influence on her opponent. O’Flynn has also kept a relatively low profile.

WHITE WANTS a Rochester `for us, by us´ BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN Alex White, the Green Party candidate for Rochester mayor, is fired up about Costco. But not in the way you think. Costco, a membership-only warehouse store, will be part of the CityGate development planned for the intersection of East Henrietta and Westfall roads. Costco received property tax abatements from the county’s industrial development agency worth $3.6 million for its new store. And that’s what has White riled up. That money could have been used to rebuild vacant houses in the city, he says, or to educate students in the Rochester school district. And the store will be redundant, he says, because the site is close to a Tops supermarket. “It will take business away from other places in the area,” White says. “It will be almost commercial-neutral to the general area. Are we really hurt by not developing that area? Is there really a burning need to put something down there? I don’t think there is.” White, who has run for mayor and City Council in recent years, owns the gaming store Boldo’s Armory on Monroe Avenue, and is a director of the Good Business Association of Rochester. He lives on South Clinton Avenue in Rochester South Wedge neighborhood. White is a longtime critic of the incentives given to developers by COMIDA and by city government. And he’s made it the main thrust of his mayoral campaign this year. White will face Democrat Lovely Warren in the general election on Tuesday, November 5. Incumbent Tom Richards has the Working Families and Independence lines, but is not actively campaigning. The argument for incentives is that few projects would get done without them, and that at least the municipality will get some tax money from the completed project. A vacant building doesn’t generate any tax revenue and has a deleterious effect on the surrounding area. But White says that private investment might step up if the city and COMIDA leveled the playing field. Smaller investors can’t compete with the big guys and their multimillion-dollar incentives, he says, so they don’t even try. “And I don’t buy the premise that if we don’t give the money, nothing will ever happen,” White says. “That’s absurd.”
But White’s critics point to projects like the Academy building, which has undergone a beautiful renovation with assistance including a $700,000 bridge loan from the City of Rochester. The building languished for years and was visibly deteriorating until the city found a way to make the financing work for a developer. Now the building has 21 market-rate apartments. By helping to finance housing projects,
the City of Rochester is picking winners and losers, White says. The population of the region is not growing, so every time a new house is built, he says, a vacancy is created somewhere else — most likely in a neighborhood that can ill afford it. “But more importantly, without this influx of new housing, we would have the possibility to fix up and fill the vacant houses in the neighborhoods, which is an incredibly important part of the problem because that’s driving down property values,” he says. And low property values make it difficult for people to get home-equity loans to maintain their property, White says. The city could, instead, invest its money to rebuild vacant houses using local labor, he says. And once the houses are fixed, the city could implement an urban homestead program, White says, which would build owner-occupancy in neighborhoods, create jobs, and boost property values. “This is an alternative way that we could use our money to actually create jobs and build wealth,” he says. Rochester did have an urban homesteading program at one time in which people bought vacant houses for $1 and were then given a set amount of time to make repairs. The new homeowners were on their own to find financing for the overhaul. The problem in many cases was that the cost of repairs was more than the houses were worth on the market once they were fixed up. Where Rochester’s program worked, say people who were involved in city government at the time, was in neighborhoods with decent property values like the 19th Ward and the South Wedge.
Lovely Warren, City Council president and the
Democratic candidate for mayor, has made education the keystone of her campaign. White,

by design, hasn’t had a lot to say about education or the Rochester school district during his run. “I’m running for mayor of Rochester,” he says. “I’m not running for school board. And the only way the mayor has any say over education other than the financing of education is if we go to mayoral control, which I am completely opposed to.” White does say that the way that Rochester provides its share of funding to the school district is backward. Instead of finding out how much the district needs from the city to properly educate students, White says, the city gives the district the base amount required by state law, and then the district figures out how much education it can afford with the money provided by the city, state, and other sources. “We need to find a way to pay for what the school district tells us they need,” he says. On policing, White has said several times that if elected, he would replace Police Chief James Sheppard. Sheppard is good on outreach, White says, but poor on management and supervision. He cites a few

examples to make his case, including the rampant “fixing” of parking tickets uncovered by the Democrat and Chronicle last year. “I see officers behaving in a way that indicates they are poorly supervised,” White says. “It may be in the culture. It may be difficult to fix. But [Sheppard’s] not doing it.” White has also released a 10 p.m. plan to combat street-corner drug sales. Young people would be given jobs through the summer, and then paid to stay in school during the academic year, as long as they meet “acceptable standards for student attendance.” White says his vision is a Rochester that invests in itself and lifts itself up — the whole city, not just a privileged few. “I have a vision of a for-us-by-us Rochester, and that we are building the things we need, making the stuff we need here in Rochester to lift ourselves up,” he says. “I did not grow up in the lesser Rochester, but that doesn’t mean I can’t understand it. And I have gone to a great deal of effort to come up with solutions, rather than just talk about my experience growing up.” rochestercitynewspaper.com
Greens take aim at tax incentives BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN The Green Party of Monroe County is fielding three candidates for the five open seats on Rochester City Council. David Atias, Drew Langdon, and Dorothy Paige will face Council incumbents Carolee Conklin, Dana Miller, Jackie Ortiz, Matt Haag, and Loretta Scott (all Democrats) in the November 5 general election, as well as Working Families candidate Marlowe Washington. Washington also sought the endorsement of the Democratic Party, but lost to the incumbents in the September primary. The Green Party’s candidates have a common message: they want to stop government from giving tax breaks and other incentives to big-ticket developers. They say it’s unfair, and that the city could use those millions of dollars to begin addressing child poverty, the underperformance of the Rochester school district, vacant housing, and Rochester’s many additional persistent problems. Profiles of the Green Party’s Council candidates are below. Profiles of the five incumbents and Washington ran in the August 21 issue. Dorothy Paige
Dorothy Paige has worked extensively with the underprivileged in Rochester, so her concern for them comes from an authentic place. Paige, who was born in New York City, has spent much of her adult life working with the disadvantaged, particularly the homeless. She spent two years working in an overnight shelter in the South Wedge through AmeriCorps. Paige also worked with homeless women at the YMCA, homeless children at the Center for Youth, and for a federally funded job training program for senior citizens. Paige, who lives in the Dutchtown neighborhood in northeast Rochester, is currently unemployed and has spent two years looking for work. “My unemployment ran out, so I’m living on my savings,” she says. If the city or the county Industrial Development Agency is going to give incentives to developers, Paige says, they need to make sure that they get something equal out of the deal. 8 CITY

“We just give away too much stuff,” she says. “It’s really unbalanced.” Another issue: vacant properties. City officials aren’t doing enough, Paige says, to rein in absentee landlords. The city should be able to take properties from negligent landlords, she says, and then work with nonprofits to rehab the houses to increase home ownership in troubled areas of the city. Paige also talks about the need for more job training programs for city residents, and for developers to provide job training and jobs for city residents in greater numbers. David Atias
David Atias is a local activist, longtime member of the Green Party, and has twice run for Rochester school board. A former teacher, he is currently the assistant director of advocacy for the Center for Disability Rights. City officials like to trumpet the investments they make in Rochester’s neighborhoods, Atias says, but much of that is for roads and other infrastructure. The city should invest in locally owned businesses, he says, which can serve as the nucleus for a neighborhood’s rebirth. Rochester needs jobs less than it does wealth creation, Atias says. The city’s many empty lots can be converted into for-
profit urban farms, he says, and attendant businesses will spring up to support and serve the farms. And the assets would stay in the community, Atias says. Atias also talks about exploring single payer health care coverage for city residents, and creating a municipal energy company as a way to attract business. City residents have been hearing only one party’s ideas — Democrats — for too long, Atias says, and it’s time to bring diversity to city governance. “There needs to be different kinds of dialogue,” he says. “Lots of people don’t believe in the direction we’re going.” Citing tensions between police and the African-American community, Atias says that Police Chief James Sheppard needs to be replaced. And he says that the city needs a fully independent review board to ensure police accountability. Drew Langdon
Drew Langdon works in sales and merchandising for Lord & Taylor in Eastview Mall, but says that’s just to pay the bills. His main occupation, he says, is activism. Langdon participated in statewide campaigns for marriage equality and the passage of the Gender Expression NonDiscrimination Act, and he’s a founder of
the Rochester Organization for Workplace Democracy. The latter promotes an alternate form of economics where the workers own the company, Langdon says. “No fat bonuses for failing CEO’s,” he says. Langdon formerly ran for State Assembly against powerhouse incumbent David Gantt, a Democrat. Langdon opposes the incentives awarded to developers who “only create minimal jobs.” He advocates for locally owned cooperatives to build wealth and create opportunities. “The big-business model is all about profit and enriching the few,” he says. Langdon says he pushed to convert the men’s clothing store Hickey Freeman into a cooperative before it was sold earlier this year. Langdon also says that the city needs a level of government that’s closer to the people than City Council. Council members’ territories are too vast, he says, and constituents have limited access to their representatives. Neighborhoods or quadrants could have their own councils, he says, that control everything from speed limits to zoning. Langdon also calls for citizens to have more influence into the city’s budgeting process.
Many choices remain for school board BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

There are three seats available on the Rochester school board this year, and incumbents Van White, Cynthia Elliott, and Jose Cruz are asking voters to return them to office. Our profiles of the candidates who ran in the September Democratic primary appeared in the August 21 issue. Though all three of the incumbents were able to fend off their primary challengers, some of the challengers are still in the race and will appear on the ballot in the November 5 general election. Candice Lucas is running on the Working Families Party line. And both Howard Eagle and Ronald Hall are running on the Freedom line. All are registered Democrats. Lori Thomas is a Green Party candidate and Republican Mia Hodgins will also be on the ballot. Their profiles are below.
Thomas says that her biggest concern with the district is the lack of accountability, particularly at the administrative level. “Failure fuels funding,” she says. “You don’t get money [in urban education] unless you fail.” The near total absence of parental engagement and oversight has allowed the oversight problem to become systemic and system-wide, Thomas says. She says that her first priorities as a board member would be to cut the number of cabinetlevel positions that the superintendent can hire, and to dissolve the administratorlevel union contract. Giving management cover through a union contract doesn’t make sense, she says. “Everyone talks about how teachers can’t be fired,” Thomas says. “No, no, no; administrators can’t be fired. They mess up and they just move them to a different school.” Thomas says that she is bothered when people say that 85 percent of the district’s budget goes to salaries, because that assumes that the money is going to pay teachers. But the district is top-heavy with highly paid administrators, she says. And she says that many never have meaningful contact with students, teachers, or parents — something she finds preposterous. “That’s why we have to change the system,” Thomas says. “We can’t reform it.”
Lori Thomas is a retired teacher in the city school district and a Green Party candidate for school board. She spends much of her time writing blogs about education and advocating for changes in local, state, and national education policies. Teaching is a second career for Thomas, who was born in Batavia, raised in Rochester, and graduated from James Madison High School. She earned her undergraduate and graduate degrees after working for the City of Rochester for 18 years as an environmental services operator. Thomas is an outspoken critic of the district and the school board. She regularly attends school board and community meetings armed with a battalion of questions and comments that often challenge central office administrators.
Mia Hodgins is assistant director of alumni relations at Rochester Institute of Technology. This is her second run for school board, but this time she’s running as a Republican. continues on page 10 rochestercitynewspaper.com

The county’s approximately 1,100 registered Greens equal less than 1 percent of either registered Republicans or Democrats. Since the end of 2011, however, the party’s enrollment has been growing, marking an important shift after several years of declines. And in recent elections, Green candidates have performed at levels disproportionate to the party’s enrollment. White received 2,221 votes in the 2011 mayoral special election — approximately 9 percent of the 25,726 cast. And in a 2012 challenge against Democratic Assembly member David Gantt, Drew Langdon received 4,498 votes, or almost 10 percent of the 46,253 cast. The Greens say that they hope that running fuller slates, as they are doing this year, will convince more people to enroll as or to vote for Greens. And that’ll be crucial headed into the 2014 gubernatorial elections. The Green candidate has to receive a certain number of votes for the party to keep its official state recognition for the subsequent four years. That recognition makes it easier for the party to get its local and statewide candidates on the ballot. But to grow the Greens ranks, the party also has to do outreach, which is where campaign tactics come into play. And while the Greens say that they are frustrated by their exclusion from mediasponsored debates, they are encouraged that community groups are inviting their candidates to forums and meetings. “They want to hear our ideas,” Council candidate Atias says. “Will some of the folks who were there vote for us? I don’t know. I think so.” And former mayor Johnson also has some advice for the Greens on growing their party and influence. He says that they need to keep speaking out on issues after the elections are over.
In recent local elections, the number of votes received by Green candidates vastly outperformed the party’s enrollment
2011 mayoral special election TOM RICHARDS, DEMOCRAT 12,471 votes (48.5%) BILL JOHNSON, WORKING FAMILIES/INDEPENDENCE 10,732 votes (41.7%) ALEX WHITE, GREEN 2,221 votes (8.6%) NONE OF THE ABOVE 44 votes (<1%) Total votes cast: 25,726 Green Party registration: 302 The big-party candidates have many paths to reach voters, such as paid advertising and polished websites. They also harness substantial volunteer networks to knock on doors and to staff phone banks. But many outreach efforts require money, and in that, the Greens are lacking. Instead, this year’s slate is running campaigns that are, in a sense, more traditional. The candidates knock on doors and talk to anyone who will listen. They also go to community gathering places like the Public Market to engage potential voters. And they’ve embraced social media as a means to connect with voters and to spread their message. But they’re also trying their hands at an unconventional approach. Over the summer, the Greens began holding interactive Livestream events, where candidates had free-wheeling
conversations devoted to various issues. Viewers could join in the discussion. For example, Good and Langdon held a Livestream in August devoted to criminal justice and public safety issues. The candidates continue to hold Livestreams each Tuesday — an approach that gives them a direct connection to voters, sans filter. The Greens say that they want to win elections, but that they also have different ways of measuring success. Increasing the number of registered Greens is one measure, they say, and keeping their state recognition is another. In the longer term, building a party that is an active and meaningful participant in city elections would be an important milestone, they say. “A victory is going to look like people having better lives,” White says. “That’s what success in politics should be.”
Choices remain for school board continues from page 9
Hodgins has a 10-point plan to improve student performance and raise the district’s graduation rate: increasing parental involvement, improving reading proficiency, and providing more arts, music, and sports to help feed students’ interests and keep them from dropping out. She says that she supports Superintendent Bolgen Vargas’s efforts to give students more instruction time through expanded learning programs, and that she wants to help provide more training and development for teachers. 10 CITY OCTOBER 23-29, 2013
One of Hodgins’ biggest concerns is making the best use of the district’s resources, she says, and maximizing the district’s $780 million budget to the fullest extent. “Without drastic cuts in the budget, huge tax increases, or a dramatic increase in state aid, the way we manage funding of our schools is unsustainable,” she says. Grants, partnerships, sponsorships, and collaboration with other organizations offer innovative opportunities for developing new funding, she says.
Bright, young, and congenial, Hodgins clearly wants to help city students and her community. She says that she strongly believes in the value of community service. Even though the city is heavily Democratic, Hodgins says that her values are not confined to one party. And she says that she doesn’t believe that running on the Republican Party line will hurt her chances of winning a seat on the school board, though clearly there are limitations given the city’s current political landscape.

charter schools will undoubtedly undercut the efforts of the Rochester school district. As we said in our pre-primary article, Warren is eloquent when she talks about Rochester’s problems. She is less strong when it comes to having realistic ways to attack them. And most important, she does not have Richards’ deep management experience and his broader view of what Rochester needs. As Warren has noted repeatedly, Rochester is very much two communities:
one is “growing, prosperous, and has a bright future.” The other, “often invisible Rochester,” she says, “is characterized by high rates of unemployment, crime, poverty, and despair.” The residents of both of those communities – but particularly those of the poorest and most vulnerable – need and deserve the best mayor possible. We remain convinced that Tom Richards is that person.
Rochester City Council
and Working Families lines; and Howard Eagle and Ronald Hall on the Freedom line. As we did for the Democratic primary, we endorse Cruz, White, and Lucas. The school district’s challenges are enormous, and its options for improvement are limited, given the poverty in which most of its students live. That doesn’t mean teachers and administrators can’t improve; they can and must. But their effectiveness and morale are under almost constant siege as officials at the district, state, and federal level come up with one initiative, change, and demand after another. A high-quality school board is crucial, and the current one isn’t as strong as it should be. But the board isn’t the reason Rochester’s children aren’t doing better in school. Every one of the board’s seven members is intensely committed to those children and the schools that serve them. Jose Cruz and Van White have played valuable roles on the board and deserve to be re-elected. Cynthia Elliott is one of the community’s strongest advocates for Rochester children. And she has toned down the harshness and combativeness she was known for in her first years on the school board. But our endorsement for the third seat goes to Candice Lucas, who lost her primary bid but is continuing to campaign on the third-party lines. Lucas has served as president of the district’s parent council, advocating for increased parent engagement and working both with parents and guardians and with district personnel. That experience has given her valuable knowledge of the district, its finances and operations, and its challenges. Mia Hodgins and Ronald Hall are well intentioned but don’t have the strength and insight necessary for the board. Lori Thomas and Howard Eagle are knowledgeable and dedicated, but their combative style – for which neither apologizes – would cause serious problems on the school board.
Council’s five incumbents – Carolee Conklin, Matt Haag, Dana Miller, Jackie Ortiz, and Loretta Scott – won the September Democratic Party primary for their at-large seats. In the November 5 general election, they face Marlowe Washington on the Working Families line and three Green Party candidates: David Atias, Andrew Langdon, and Dorothy Paige. Ortiz and Haag also have the Working Families line, and all five of the incumbents are listed on the Independence line. No other third-party candidates or Republicans are running. Atias and Langdon are good candidates, and they have an important activist role to play pushing some of the Greens’ stronger positions. But both, like Paige, have a narrow, fairly simplistic view of government and its challenges, and Paige lacks the knowledge to serve in this important position. Washington has important ideas, including creating zones of distressed neighborhoods and singling them out for intense public-private investment. But he hasn’t made the case for unseating any of the incumbents. The five incumbents have broad experience, both on City Council and in their careers. They bring expertise in finance, technology, and public service, and they represent a broad urban constituency. With a new mayor likely taking office in January, their experience on Council will be invaluable.
Rochester school board Eight candidates are on the November 5 general election ballot for the three open school board seats. All three incumbents – Jose Cruz, Cynthia Elliott, and Van White – are running for another term on the Democratic Party line. Cruz and White are also running on the Independence and Working Families lines.

ENDORSEMENTS BY CITY’S EDITORIAL STAFF
Of the six proposals on the ballot in the November election, we are focusing on the most controversial: the measure permitting more casinos in the state. If voters approve the proposal, the state could get as many as seven new casinos. The first four would be in Upstate New York, but none would be in Rochester or elsewhere in western New York, where Indian tribes have exclusive rights to operate them. (Discussions continue about the possibility of an Indian-run casino in the Rochester area.) Promoters of the casino ballot measure – including the governor, state business leaders, and, of course, casino interests – have been lobbying hard for its passage. They promise at least 10,000 new jobs – and hundreds of millions of dollars for the state and for counties throughout the state (including Monroe), distributed from taxes on casino proceeds. And, the supporters say, the casinos will boost the state’s tourism economy by drawing out-of-state visitors and by appealing to New Yorkers who have previously gone elsewhere to gamble. If experience is a guide, new jobs will indeed be created. And the casinos will generate new tax revenue, which could lower local taxes and help pay for schools and local government services. So what’s not to like? A lot, frankly. First, we should take those job-creation and revenue figures with a big grain of salt. New York already has five Indian-operated casinos (with possibly more to come) and nine racinos: race tracks with electronic gambling. They’ll compete with the new gambling venues. Supporters of the casino ballot measure note that many New Yorkers now frequent out-of-state casinos. Why not have them spend those gambling dollars in New York State? And presumably, many of those folks will indeed start gambling closer to home. But at some point, unless there is an endless appetite for gambling, we’ll reach a saturation point. New casinos will draw business from existing ones, and job growth in a new one will cause job loss in older ones. As for New York’s casinos boosting tourism by attracting gamblers from other states: New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Ohio already have casinos.
Some casino supporters think casinos will help nearby businesses. That’s a pipe dream. Casinos are one-stop entertainment, dining, and stay-over venues, designed to keep gamblers contained within their walls. They’re far more likely to suck business out of other restaurants, entertainment venues, and hotels – closing some of them and lowering local tax receipts. A third concern: the social costs resulting from the increased gambling and gambling addiction that casino expansion will bring. Nobody disputes that this will happen. And then, given the amount of money involved, there’s no end to the avenues for corruption. Gambling interests have already been spending money to influence public officials and New York voters. And as the New York Times noted earlier this month, the casino industry would almost certainly try to influence the officials who will decide where the casinos are located and who operates them – and to press for continued expansion. It did not lower the smell factor when the governor and state legislators revised the legislation calling for the casino expansion. Initially, it had barred casino developers from giving campaign donations to state officials. Suddenly, and quietly, that ban was taken out. The opportunity for corruption is enormous. And New York has no lack of history, talent, and inclination in that area. There are better ways to raise money for important government services than gambling, better ways to boost economic development, better business sectors to focus on: better industries for our vision of what New York can become. New Yorkers should vote no on the casino ballot proposal.

The dwindling daylight reminds us that the 2013 harvest is drawing to a close, but that doesn’t mean locavores can’t still find homegrown vittles. Our region is teeming with talented and enterprising individuals who are committed to crafting good things for us to eat, often with ingredients that they too have scored in our big, shared backyard. This is the third installment in an occasional series that spotlights locally made edibles. Is there an area food company you’d like to put on our radar? Then do it! Add a comment to this article on rochestercitynewspaper.com, Tweet at us @roccitynews, or e-mail food@ rochester-citynews.com. The Abbey of the Genesee, a wee bit northeast of Geneseo in Piffard, New York, is home to about 30 Trappist monks who avoid the problem of idle hands by immersing them in dough. Since 1953 the abbey has been making Monks’ Bread, now available throughout much of Western New York in that very familiar packaging. Among the current varieties are stone-ground whole wheat, cinnamon-raisin, sunflower with rolled oats, and caraway rye, with seasonal holiday breads on deck. The monks’ baking repertoire has expanded to include cookies
and cakes, and ordering directly from the abbey allows you to personalize gift boxes with handcrafted products from other monasteries. Call 877-264-6785 to learn more, or visit monksbread.com. Totally employee-owned, Nunda, NY’s Once Again Nut Butter has been roasting and grinding since 1976, with fair-trade and sustainability models that go back much further than the recent wave of consciousness. Once Again produces a number of peanut butter (think old-fashioned, organic, crunchy, no-salt) along with variations on cashew, almond, sesame, and sunflowerseed butters, plus packaged roasted nuts and the Dawes Honey line. You can find Once Again at places like Abundance Coop and Lori’s Natural Foods, or online at onceagainnutbutter.com. Geulah’s “Claim to Flame” Spicy Tomato Spread is the creation of Geulah von Perlstein, owner of Geulah’s Café and Deli at the Jewish Community Center. A versatile and all-natural condiment co-starring garlic, cumin, and crushed red pepper, the spread takes advantage of the tomato’s inherent umami to enliven whatever it’s used on or in, be it chili or a rice cake. Look for Geulah’s “Claim to Flame” Spicy Tomato Spread at shops like Parkleigh, Lipman’s Kosher
Market, and Lombardi’s Gourmet Imports, or just pop by Geulah’s Café. Check geulahs. com for more info. If you visited an area farmers’ market over the summer, you may have encountered Jennifer Brake slinging herb-and-spice mixtures under the banner of VonBrake Spices, a family business devoted to handblended rubs and seasonings. VonBrake spice blends include cajun, jerk, thai, and garam masala, along with prosciutto and pastrami rubs, plus the intriguing espresso blend and a poblano mole that did wonders for my Dr. Pepper barbecue sauce. VonBrake provides recipe ideas as well; follow the company on Facebook to see where it’ll pop up next, or visit vonbrakespices.com. South Bristol’s Arbor Hill Winery has a lot on its proverbial plate, and most of it is grape-related. There are, of course, a number of wines, but Arbor Hill has been offering a line of gourmet foods since 1980, such as jams and preserves, flavored vinegars, finishing sauces, and Healthy Purple grape-pie filling, plus addictive grape gummy bears and licorice twists. Look for Arbor Hill products at shops like Red Bird Market and Aman’s Farm Market, or visit thegrapery.com to order online. Glenn and Marcia Litwiller’s Mountain Rise Organics is a farm in the hills of Naples,
NY, that makes herb blends, herbal soaps, and Mountain Rise Granola, a hearty combination of whole grains and other goodness, like cocoa in the Chunky Cocoa version, or raisins, cinnamon, and ginger in the Spice of Life blend. A few of the granolas in the Mountain Rise line are vegan, and all are baked and packaged in Mountain Rise’s nut- and peanut-free bakery. Get your granola on at places like Abundance Co-op and Wegmans in Canandaigua and head to mountainrise.com for more details. You’re told that when life hands you lemons, you make lemonade. But this is Western New York, and when you’re confronted with a pile of grape guts, you make grape seed oil. Romulus, NY’s Seneca BioEnergy cold-presses the byproducts from a couple dozen wineries to make Finger Lakes Grape Seed Oil, a light-bodied oil that’s excellent as both an ingredient (it contains the “good” kind of cholesterol) and a cooking fat thanks to its relatively high smoke point. You can find Finger Lakes Grape Seed Oil at retailers like Casa Larga Vineyards and Pittsford Wegmans; visit fingerlakesgrapeseedoil.com to learn more. “Do you dukkah?” the flyer salaciously wondered at Allens Hill Farm’s booth at the Brighton Farmers’ Market. From the Arabic word meaning “to pound” (which really doesn’t help to make it any less dirtysounding), dukkah is actually a nut-andspice concoction of Egyptian origin that’s traditionally used as a topping or mix-in. The Bloomfield, NY, farm sells a few varieties of dukkah, along with baking mixes, granolas, sea salts, and owner John Loveland’s applecider molasses. Look for Allens Hill Farm products at shops like Red Bird Market, or visit allenshillfarm.com to order online. Confession time! At last month’s gutbusting Festival of Food, there was one vendor I visited twice, and that was Happy Earth Tea, the thoughtful infusions of owner/operator Niraj Lama helping to both warm and soothe on a long, brisk night of indulgence. Lama — a native of Darjeeling, India, if you’re looking for bonafides — offers organic, single-origin black and green teas, as well as various herbal blends and chais. The Happy Earth Tea website provides gorgeous photos and tempting descriptions of flavor profiles, along with instructions for brewing.

Weekend SATURDAY, OCTOBER 26 THE BUG JAR, 219 MONROE AVE. 9 P.M. | $10-$12 | BUGJAR.COM [ POP/ROCK ] San Francisco-based band Weekend
delivers a wash of ambient, 80s New Wave influenced post-punk with a relevant, contemporary edge. The songs on its recently released album “Jinx” present a sound that is clearly influenced by New Wave acts such as Joy Division and The Smiths, complete with the pop sensibility of both bands and many others within the genre. Like its shoegaze and new wave predecessors, Weekend takes a raw, punk rock sound and places a soft filter over the surface.The end product winds up, creating a wall-of-sound, each part coming together to create a haunting, hazy tribute to the bands that came before. — BY LEAH CREARY

[ REVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
Ed Roland’s Sweet Tea Project rolled into town Tuesday, October 15, not to steep, not to brew, not to percolate, but to rock the joint like a diesel-powered Dixie-fied deep fryer. The man’s music is instantly recognizable, thanks to seven No. 1 hits with his band, Collective Soul — and so is his voice. What’s new and not something you would necessarily pin on Roland is the instrumentation behind Sweet Tea Project’s sound. It’s pure Americana; not too honky, not too tonky, with just the right amount of dirt, dust, and twang. You can thank the exquisite application of lap steel and the banjo, an instrument which admittedly isn’t often known for its exquisite application. The band filled the newly revamped Richmond’s to the walls on Tuesday. It was hot and sticky, sweet and sweaty as the steam heat from the eager bodies shoehorned in to dig the scene, mingled with that of the fry cook cranking out those hot wings. The band plowed through material off its debut “Devils ’n’ Darlins” with a Man in Black detour and a Collective Soul encore. The five-piece band seemed right at

home playing authentic barroom rock ’n’ roll in an actual beer joint, with the crowd piled in almost nose to nose with the band. We’ll be talking about this one for a while. Is it adios to Audio Influx? With the exit of key members Chris “Hollywood” English and MDot Coop, you’ve got to wonder. But everyone in the band’s camp says no. A new drummer has already been rehearsing with the remaining players. Now I’m not saying the band should hang it up, but those are some big shoes to fill. Anyhow, it was a farewell gig of sorts at a packed Dinosaur Friday night, where the band jammed its hip-hop-soul for the kids. The band was incredibly tight with a soulful vocal tag team attack over its thick groove ’n’ grind. Slid over to Richmond’s once again for North Carolina hard-rockers Blanco Diablo. This band is loud with a borderline ferocity that threatened to blow the lid off the joint. Digging this band in this size joint was like watching a Panzer park in a phone booth. I’d seen the trio once before and it seems like it has moved in a slightly more metal direction, at least in its guitar attack. Ain’t nothin’ wrong with that.

The hearts and influences of its members are visible on its collective sleeve. Clearly a pop vehicle, MoChester jams effortlessly outside the safety of pop’s sugar walls with apparent, and perhaps some not-so-apparent, roots. There’s reggae, there’s jazz, even some darker leanings toward the blues. But the band’s gentle song-based aesthetic gives it a unique edge in a scene that doesn’t necessarily acknowledge or embrace unique. MoChester is pop, but more than pop, too. Singer-guitarist Brandon Sheffer calls it “Pop with a reggae twist,” he says. “It started out less reggae, more pop… a little jazzy at times, maybe a little more acoustic driven.” Flashforward to today and you’ve got a MoChester with its 3-year-old line-up — Sheffer, his brother John Sheffer on guitar and keyboards,
drummer Alex Melville, and Ben Overmyer on bass — a rock band of substance and subtlety, of tangibility and mystery. The Sheffer boys had been playing music together since their early teens, growing up in Webster. “John and I started MoChester when I was 13 or 14,” Brandon says. “It started out singer/ songwriter. I just played acoustic guitar for years.” It wasn’t until 2005, while recording some demos, that the man went electric. Melville and Overmyer played together in Livid, which morphed into Small Time Criminals, which used to share the bill every now and then with MoChester. The collision of these two sets of talent ramped up the MoChester sound, cranking up the intensity up a bit. John blames Melville. “I think when Alex joined us,” he says, “he put a heavier modern-rock element, kind of an edge, to it.” With the release of this year’s “Lost and Found” — the band’s follow-up to its 2011 debut “Stop and Go” — MoChester proves it is growing more into its music and how it approaches the added spice of genres outside mainstream pop and rock. For example, MoChester’s members
love reggae. They use it as a bridge, a detour, a dance-floor lure. But when does the influence become no longer a dash or twist, but the dominant strain? Brandon takes a stab. “I think if the whole song has upstrokes, it’s a reggae song,” he says. But generally, based on the band’s output to date, reggae is just one of the many grooves and slants the band takes. It’s a juxtaposition that drives home the myriad surrounding sounds. “Like when the chorus is a little more rockdriven before it busts back into a reggae verse,” says John. And Brandon points out his left-ofpop-center leanings as well. “I use jazz chords a bit as opposed to the standard bar chord,” he says. “Something with a little flavor — G7 instead of G M — something a little prettier. I think a misconception is that we’re overall pop, that we’re looking for a sound that appeals to everyone. I think our goal in songwriting is to please ourselves first, and if other people enjoy it, that’s a bonus.” John says, “There have been times in practice where we’ve written a song that we’re excited about. And we want to save it for a big show or something, and the minute we get to the first show after writing it, it’s like, ‘We gotta play it.’”

POP/ROCK | GROUPLOVE
If you prefer a lesson in environmental responsibility to go along with your music, perhaps the Campus Consciousness Tour may be up your alley. Visiting college campuses across the nation, the CCT’s aim is to combine popular music with social consciousness in educating students about the environment; in both message and touring practices alike, the hope is building towards a more sustainable future. Helping deliver that message in the 2013 iteration is LA based alternative pop-rockers Grouplove, alongside NYC electronic duo The Knocks. Grouplove, for the uninitiated, dabble in electronic tinged rock with more than a dash of pop, resulting in what is pretty much the exactly formula needed for gracing an iPod commercial, which its track “Tongue Tied” actually did. The band is touring in support of its sophomore record, “Spreading Rumours,” released earlier this month. The Campus Consciousness Tour featuring Grouplove, The Knocks and Saints of Valory, takes place Tuesday, October 29, 7 p.m. at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N.

Genesis P-Orridge of the proto-industrial group Psychic TV once made the controversial statement that “all music is innately psychedelic.” Whether you agree with him or not, it can certainly be said that some types of music are just more focused on consciousness expansion than others. Rochester’s Neuroceptor creates unabashedly psychedelic music utilizing both electronic tools, as well as more traditional “organic” instruments. Favoring dubby downtempo grooves and various ethnic influences, Neuroceptor paints explosively colorful, lavishly textured soundscapes reminiscent of popular EDM acts like Shpongle. Harmony Flo also bring its brand of dub-psy trance to the bill.
Minnesota based singer-songwriter Mary Cutrufello has spent over 20 years in the music business. This Yale-educated country crooner’s forceful approach to Americana has garnered her respect throughout the genre and landed her spots playing with a list of legendary longhorns such as Jimmie Dale Gilmore and Billy Joe Shaver. She’s been on the Tonight Show and toured with The Allman Brothers, Susan Tudeschi, and Gov’t Mule. Although she is considered a honky-tonk wonder woman of sorts, it is her ability to rock that sets her apart. Cutrufello has said that “rock and roll is where I’m from, and as much as I love country, I have to give that part of me its voice too.” Well, thank God for that, because the resulting dialogue is rather divine.
Nick Young grew up during the grunge era but cites a connection with alternative country bands like Uncle Tupelo as creating a foundation for his interest in picking up the guitar. Young’s father introduced him to the group and that set the wheels in motion for a self-described shy kid to front a power-pop/alt-country outfit (Burning Daylight) and eventually throw his hat into the acoustic singer-songwriter ring. Now as a solo performer, Young has toured the lower forty eight with pal Chris Trapper (formerly of The Push Stars) and released a twang-infused debut album “Truth Is.” Young will make a hometown tour stop at Abilene with a CD release party for his latest “South Lima.” Brian Ayers opens.

20 CITY OCTOBER 23-29, 2013
“Darling, there are no other stars.” That line is ascribed to Bette Davis in “Me and Jezebel,” the opening production in Blackfriars Theatre’s 64th season. The show tells the allegedly true story of what happened when Davis — the legendary movie star who won two Academy Awards for Best Actress, received 10 Oscar nominations, and who was the first woman to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Film Institute — came to a fan’s house for dinner. That fan was Elizabeth Fuller, an author who eventually turned the story of Davis’s visit into a novel, which was adapted into a one-person play, which turned into a two-person show that successfully mixes comedy and drama. The production at Blackfriars is a charming piece that should be of interest to anyone with an interest in Old Hollywood, or who perhaps has a house guest who simply will not leave. The story is set in the early 1980’s, prior to Davis filming the pilot of Aaron Spelling’s “Hotel” but after the debut of Kim Carnes’ chart-topping pop song in her honor, “Bette Davis Eyes.” Fuller eagerly tells the story of what happened when she accidentally became acquainted with her childhood cinematic idol and had her over for dinner, which somehow led to Davis staying for a night or two. Which then became three or four. Which somehow turned into two weeks, and then subsequently zipped past that deadline. As the movie star and her host become closer, the two share their lives. Davis wrestles with the publication of her daughter’s “Mommie Dearest”-style tell-all while Fuller navigates an increasingly exasperated husband and relives memories of her late grandmother. She also takes more than a few pages out of Bette Davis’s diva playbook. The play nicely balances the serious emotional notes with some very funny lines, most of them stemming from Davis ragging on various celebrity contemporaries or dishing the dirt on her past projects. Humphrey Bogart and Paul Newman get
called out a few times, but Davis’s arch-nemesis, Joan Crawford, gets the most frequent licks from Davis’s acid tongue. If you’re not familiar with the stars or the movies in question most of the jokes won’t land, but when they do they’re hilarious. And it’s interesting to get a fading A-lister’s take on the nature of American celebrity. (“Once they stop asking for your autograph you’re finished,” Davis says in the play; Miley Cyrus just gave an interview to Rolling Stone that eerily echoed that sentiment.) Many stagings of “Me and Jezebel” feature men

in drag in at least the Bette Davis role. This makes sense, because Davis was essentially a drag queen trapped in a woman’s body — larger than life, in your face, and ready to let you have it. For the Blackfriars production, director John Haldoupis cast two of Rochester’s top female illusionists, Ed Popil (a seasoned veteran of local stages, both as a man and in his female alter ego Kasha Davis) and Tom Smalley (better known as local drag diva Aggy Dune). The two of them perform frequently in the Big Wigs show at various venues, and their chemistry and comfort with each other shines through consistently. Popil has the larger role as Fuller. He also has to take on several secondary roles, ranging from a 4-year-old child to a wizened Irish grandmother, which he communicates effectively through mannerisms and voice (no costume changes). Popil has a natural warmth about him, and Kasha’s “celebrity housewife” vibe works well in this show. He also looked absolutely stunning in the performance I attended, especially in the va-va-voom dress sported in the second act. Popil tripped over lines on occasion, but immediately got back on track. Smalley has the flashier role as Bette Davis, and he does the screen siren proud. There are times when the light hits Smalley just right and he very much approximates Davis herself (no make-up, wig, or costumer designers are listed in the program, but they
are terrific across the board). Smalley does an exaggerated take on Davis’s mannered speaking so that it comes across over the top, but still instantly recognizable as Bette Davis. And he is so funny. His Davis is bitchy, dismissive, arrogant — yet still quite vulnerable at times — and Smalley is fully committed to the role all the way through to the final bows. The program bio suggests that Smalley is interested in doing more local acting work. Let’s hope we see him on the stage again soon. The direction by Haldoupis keeps the show moving quickly from one area of the set to another. The show includes numerous audio and lighting cues, all of which were flawlessly executed. I went into the show already familiar with Bette Davis from “All About Eve” and “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?” and afterwards found myself desperate to see more of this unconventional, gutsy woman’s work. I was especially interested in seeing her Oscar-winning turn in 1938’s “Jezebel.” I was chagrined to discover that only two of her films are available on instant streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime (one is “Of Human Bondage,” which gets a great reference in “Me and Jezebel”). I wonder what Ms. Davis would have to say about that….

ART | “BEING” BY OLIVIA KIM
In her studio in the Hungerford Building, Olivia Kim creates masterful figurative sculptures of cast glass and metals, stone, clay, or plaster, capturing the balance and grace of the human form in motion, and creating human portraits of desire or the dawn with deeply detailed, expressive countenances. Kim’s pursuit of art studies has taken her from Rochester’s School of the Arts, to Alfred University, to the Florence Academy of Art in Florence, Italy. Sculptures and drawings from Kim’s new body of work, “Being,” will be featured at Ock Hee’s Gallery (2 Lehigh St., Honeoye Falls) on Saturday, October 26, with a meet-the-artist reception taking place noon-5 p.m. And as a bonus, perfectpairing to the artwork, the reception will feature a special dance performance by FuturPointe at 1 p.m. Olivia Kim’s work will remain on view through November 25. Gallery hours are Monday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m., and admission is free.

RECREATION | FALL SKY RIDES
Take advantage of the beautiful fall weather before the snow starts to appear and head to Bristol Mountain (5662 New York 64, Canandaigua) for the last weekend of Fall Sky Rides. Obviously you can’t ski yet — well you could, it just won’t go that well for you — but you can take a ski-lift ride to the base of the mountain and get an eyeful of the fall scenery. With the unpredictability of Rochester winters, this could be one of the last chances to observe the area’s beautiful fall foliage. If the weather is clear you might be lucky enough to get a glimpse of Canandaigua Lake. Rides cost $6-$10 per person, and children 2 and younger ride for free. Sky rides run noon-4 p.m. Visit bristolmountain.com or call 374-6000 for more information. — BY TREVOR LEWIS Exhibit and Works in Progress. Through Oct 28. 319-5279. joebeanroasters.com.

LECTURE | NATIVE AMERICAN LECTURE SERIES
As empires, and other human activities, cause different groups of people to clash or brush against one another, individuals caught up in the cultural shifts have dealt differently with the changes. In North America, many Native groups strive to maintain an identity separate from but coexistent with the decedents of colonizers and new immigrants alike. Friends of Ganondagan has teamed up with Nazareth College to present a fall lecture series that focuses on the identity politics surrounding “Adoption and Adaptation.” The lectures will explore instances in which nonNatives have been adopted into Native cultures, and in which Natives have been adopted into non-Native culture. Two lectures in this series remain, and each will take place at 7 p.m. at Nazareth College’s Shults Center (4245 East Ave.). On Thursday, October 24, the subject will be “Adopting ‘In’: Preserving Iroquois Traditional Community,” featuring speakers G. Peter Jemison (pictured), Ganondagan site manager and eighth-generation descendent of Mary Jemison; and Dr. Sally Roesch Wagner, executive director of the Matilda Joslyn Gage Foundation. Using the historical examples of Mary Jemison and Matilda Joslyn Gage, these speakers will delve explore variations of adopting “in,” part of an ancient Native tradition that preceded European arrival. On Thursday, November 21, speakers Ronnie Reitter, Ganondagan site interpreter and former foster child; and Jack T. Ericson, Native genealogy expert, will discuss “Adopting ‘Out’: Researching and Reclaiming Identity.” Reitter will share her personal story about finding family, and Ericson will address resources and strategies for searching out one’s roots. Individual lecture prices are $15; $10/Friends of Ganondagan members; $5/students with ID. Tickets will be available beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the event. For more information, visit ganondagan.org/events.html or call 742-1690. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

Bullying and bloody revenge “Carrie”
(R), DIRECTED BY KIMBERLY PEIRCE NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA
Back in 1998 Gus Van Sant directed a remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic horror flick “Psycho,” which simply duplicated the original almost shot-for-shot, without adding to or changing or reinterpreting the material. Kimberly Peirce accomplishes much the same result in her new picture, “Carrie,” a remake of Brian De Palma’s 1976 film; like Van Sant she pretty much copies the first movie without any significant changes

in plot, characters, or theme. Why both directors should choose such a route remains a mystery, known perhaps only to Hollywood insiders. Based on Stephen King’s cleverly constructed breakthrough novel, “Carrie” represented a kind of breakthrough for De Palma as well. His relatively straightforward adaptation collected a number of positive reviews and performed well at the box office, especially with the teenage audience that embraces horror, and in effect launched two successful careers. King must now be one of the most productive and not incidentally one of the richest novelists in the world, while De Palma has created a string of brilliant Hitchcockian thrillers. Aside from a weird and grisly prologue and a slightly different epilogue, Peirce’s “Carrie” closely follows the original. The action proper opens with Carrie White (Chloë Grace Moretz), a shy loner and a misfit, cowering timidly, isolated from everyone else in her high-school gym class. In the showers she experiences her first menstrual period and, knowing nothing about her body or anything

involving sexuality, panics and screams, which provokes the scorn of her cruel classmates, who mock her and pelt her with sanitary napkins. The humiliation more or less accidentally initiates the first inklings of Carrie’s special gift of telekinesis, which takes her a while to understand and master. Carrie’s home life explains her difference from her classmates and her consequent loneliness; her mother, Margaret (Julianne Moore), is a religious fanatic who prevents her daughter from participating in anything like the normal life of a high-school kid. She constantly quotes (actually misquotes) the Bible, dwelling on evil and punishment, and when she thinks her daughter has sinned, locks her in a closet to pray for forgiveness. When Sue (Gabriella Wilde), one of Carrie’s classmates who regrets her participation in the taunting, persuades her boyfriend Tommy (Ansel Elgort) to invite Carrie to the prom, the cruelty of her classmates brings on a terrible climax. Her chief tormentor, Chris (Portia Doubleday), suspended for her attack on Carrie, along with a crew of louts, hatches a scheme of bloody revenge. Carrie’s telekinetic powers inspire her to respond out of anger and despair with her own act of ultimately apocalyptic vengeance. Although the movie follows its model closely, perhaps because of familiarity with the original, it lacks the edge, the emotional impact, and of course the shock of De Palma’s work. Although no

longer than its predecessor, it seems to drag slowly toward its entirely predictable climax, then provides a most perfunctory commentary on the action. The whole work suggests that its makers really didn’t care too much about their picture and had no interest in trying anything novel or original. The exaggeration of the performances contrasts with the lackluster repetition of just about everything else. Prettier than Sissy Spacek, Hollywood’s greatest waif, who played the original Carrie, Chloë Grace Moretz pretends too obviously to be the plain shrinking violet, and when she blossoms at the prom she glows as Spacek did not. Julianne Moore, looking uncharacteristically unattractive and behaving hysterically most of the time, grows very tiresome very early in the movie. The rest of Carrie’s classmates look far too old to be in high school, some of them appear to be pushing 30, a just a bit aged for the senior prom. Remakes grow out of a long tradition in the film industry and despite conventional wisdom, don’t always fail to match up to or even improve on their originals. Some in fact achieve their own excellence — “Invasion of the Body Snatchers,” for example, or, much earlier, “The Thief of Bagdad.” Those pictures actually reinterpret the material from the past and make something new, different, and entirely satisfying out of a proven success, no mean achievement. In her remake, Kimberly Peirce, on the other hand, only repeats the past, a most unrewarding endeavor.
For nearly the entire year leading up to the release of “The Fifth Estate,” WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has actively campaigned against the film, which depicts the creation of his controversial online organization. He’s done everything he can to ensure the film’s failure; supposedly he even met with Benedict Cumberbatch early on to implore him not to accept the lead role in the film. WikiLeaks, with its mission of fighting against government corruption by forcing transparency through the release of classified documents, and the impact it had (and is still having) on the landscape of modern journalism, is a subject ripe for exploration. That the film opened this weekend with the lowest debut of any wide release so far this year may be related to the factual inaccuracies that so angered Assange, but more likely has to do with the ways it squanders an interesting subject to emerge as a timely, but ultimately bloodless biopic. Beginning in the early days of WikiLeaks and culminating with the Iraq War Logs and then the release of hundreds

of thousands of U.S. State Department diplomatic cables, the film uses computer hacker and technology activist Daniel Domscheit-Berg (author of the book of one of two books screenwriter Josh Singer credits as source material) as the audience conduit into Assange’s world. At first a devoted acolyte of Assange’s mission of governmental transparency, Berg (sensitively played by Daniel Brühl, “Rush”) effectively puts his life on hold to assist Assange in making WikiLeaks into the powerful political force it eventually became. While the site becomes a phenomenon, the differing ideologies between the two men over how exactly the site will divulge the information it receives creates an irreparable rift between the colleagues. The conflict boils down to Assange maintaining that any documents they release should be done so without any editing on their part, while Berg argues that any information that could trace back to the anonymous individuals who provided the documents should be redacted for their protection. Setting aside any debate about how closely the film hues to the facts (these arguments get dredged up any time a film sets out to tell any sort of real-life story), it fails to properly dramatize why these events matter. It attempts to do so, occasionally checking in with Laura Linney and Stanley Tucci as State Department officials dealing with the fallout of the cable leaks, but their scenes are so haphazardly presented that they barely register. Singer’s script also seems undecided on its feelings about Assange himself, spending the first half of the film championing his cause, then demonizing him in the second. The script fails to offer up any real insight into the man and his motivations. I won’t even get into the way it dismisses whistleblower Chelsea Manning (then known as Bradley Manning) as a soldier
whose role in the leaks was revealed as a result of online “bragging,” a harmful bit of misrepresentation of the actual circumstances. Director Bill Condon has previously shown great skill in translating complicated individuals to the big screen, in biopics “Gods and Monsters” and “Kinsey,” but here seems at a loss for how to add urgency to a subject that is not inherently cinematic — there’s only so many ways to make actors hunched over laptops exciting. He resorts to relying on flashy motion graphics and a propulsive techno score (courtesy of composer Carter Burwell) as a source of excitement. Condon repeatedly uses metaphorical representation of WikiLeaks’ online network, depicted as an endless expanse of desks and monitors, so the actors can wander around in a more visually interesting environment, but it comes across as gimmicky and more than a little silly. Another method, mercifully discarded early on in the film, involves projecting the typed words onto the actors; a tactic that’s straight out of early 90’s techno-thrillers like “Hackers” and “The Net.” Benedict Cumberbatch is quite good as the enigmatic Assange, even managing to overcome the fact that in his white wig he looks exactly like Tilda Swinton, but his performance isn’t enough to overcome the script’s deficiencies. Brühl also does what he can with his character, but as the audience surrogate he’s somewhat of a blank slate, leaving the film without a compelling lead to care about. “The Fifth Estate” ends on a rather odd note, with Cumberbatch, in character as Assange, discussing his displeasure with the film and advising the audience to seek out the truth for themselves. It’s hard to argue with his statement, and those who are interested in the story of WikiLeaks, and Assange himself, will likely be better off doing exactly that.

History and Charm Abound in Swillburg
342 Field Street
The small 20-block Swillburg Neighborhood in Rochester’s southeast quadrant has a compelling history. The area was once home to trails used by Native Americans. In the early 1800s the path of the old Erie Canal was the southern boundary of the neighborhood where lock 66 was constructed. And when the canal bed was replaced by the city’s trolley and subway lines, Swillburg became an important stop on the line. German and Irish immigrants settled in the neighborhood at the turn of the 20th century and built homes—most of which are still here, like the American Foursquare at 342 Field Street. Located on a picturesque lot that overlooks neighboring Pinnacle Hill, the red-tinted cast concrete front porch of this 1910 home welcomes you. And inside, you notice the original details of this period home— hardwood floors, wide floor and window moldings, and a Craftsman staircase. From the sunny foyer an archway opens to the spacious living room where freshly painted walls in a lovely shade of cream and crisp white trim coordinate well with the oak hardwood floors. The same décor and hardwood floors continue in the elegant dining room. The bay window with stained glass panes and an elegant chandelier make it a pleasant place in which to dine. The updated kitchen is stunning. And it’s all new--tile flooring, cabinets, and countertops. But its crown jewels are the new stainless
steel appliances. Ample pantry space completes the renovated space. Upstairs you find more oak floors in the three bedrooms—all have closets. The fourth smaller bedroom could work nicely as an office or nursery. An updated bath with new fixtures retains its original medicine cabinet. A stairway off the upstairs hall leads to the full attic, and the full basement below contains the home’s mechanics as well as the laundry and additional storage space. Outside, the fully-fenced backyard adds privacy and a great entertaining space. A driveway to the right of the home leads to plenty of off-street parking. Modern shops and restaurants on South Clinton Avenue surround this period home. The Cinema Theatre and the Highland Park Diner, two of Rochester’s venerable institutions, are located here. Park Avenue, Highland Park, and Cobbs Hill Park are within walking or biking distance. The active Swillburg Neighborhood Association organizes events such as the annual Swillfest and the holiday decorating contest. 342 Field Street is in the Rochester City School District, and several houses of worship are nearby. The 1,406 square foot home is listed at $124,900 with taxes of $4,577. Call Sharon Skivington of REMAX/Plus at 269-8901 for a tour. by Bonnie DeHollander Bonnie is a Landmark Society volunteer.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD A 61-year-old Texas man admitted to a hospital not long ago appearing to be falling-down-drunk, even though denying having had even a single drink, was discovered to be unintentionally manufacturing beer in his stomach. With “auto-brewery syndrome,” stomach-based yeast automatically ferments all starches (even vegetables or grains) passing through, converting them into ethanol. Normally, natural stomach bacteria control the yeast, but if, for example, antibiotics had inadvertently eliminated the bacteria, the yeast would prevail. The case was reported in a recent International Journal of Clinical Medicine.
Government in Action
— Update: As several additional states debate permitting marijuana use by a doctor’s prescription, Irvin Rosenfeld presented his own experience in August to a packed house at Kentucky’s state capitol. Rosenfeld suffers from painful bone tumors (diagnosed, with a poor prognosis, in 1963) and began smoking dope in the federal government’s Compassionate Investigational Drug program in 1982 -- since then consuming 130,000 government-supplied joints (12 per day, carefully measured), which he said absolutely had prolonged his life. “I didn’t ask for my bone disease,” he said. “All I asked for is the best medicine possible.” — While Congress struggled recently to pass a budget or an increase to the national debt limit, one program made it through rather easily, according to a September New York Times report: farm subsidies for inactive “farmers.” The subsidies were renewed, based on a
2008 law, virtually assuring that more than 18,000 in-name-only farmers (who received $24 million last year) will not be cut off. Included, according to a 2012 Government Accountability Office report, were recipients at 2,300 “farms” that had not grown a single crop in five years (including 622 without a crop in 10 years). — “Close Enough for Government Work”: The security contractor USIS, which does $2.45 billion worth of background checks for the National Security Agency and other departments (and had cleared file-leaker Edward Snowden and the Washington Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis), gets paid only for completed files. However, full background checks often require months of work, and at some point, reported The New York Times in September, when USIS needed cash, it would “flush” stillopen files, treating them as completed, and submit them for payment -- as happened with the files of Snowden and Alexis. In both cases, reported the Times, subsequent, crucial information failed to make it into the flushed files.
(1) A 68-year-old hiker with a broken ankle was killed in Mansfield, Australia, in August following his “successful” lift from the bush by an Ambulance Victoria helicopter. Moments after he was raised, airborne, about 30 yards off the ground, he fell to his death. (2) A 52-year-old man was killed in an explosion in Rowan County, Ky., in July when he lit a cigarette while hooked up to an oxygen supply. The man had already survived three explosions under the same circumstances.
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 35 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Emotions will be topped up, and excitement will mount this week due to an encounter you have with someone unique. Don’t show signs of possessiveness or you may send the wrong message. If you are fun to be with, that special someone will want to be with you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Not everyone will be open with you when it comes to personal involvement, commitment or current romantic situation. Don’t let anyone sweep you off your feet or talk you into intimacy without knowing the potential for your relationship growing into something long-term.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’ll attract lovers but also find it difficult to settle for just one partner. Don’t lead anyone on. As long as you are honest, you will have no regrets. Give whoever interests you the option to play the game of love with you or to take a pass. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take part in activities and events with the intent of being a social butterfly. Go out and have a good time and meet interesting people. One of the friendships you develop will have the potential to turn in a very special and rewarding union.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ll be like a kid in a candy store when it comes to love. Your charm will dazzle whoever you meet, guaranteeing plenty of partners. Action may be excellent, but be wary of someone coming on too strong. Don’t make a promise you don’t intend to keep. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Looking for what someone has to offer or trying to impress someone with what you have will end in disaster. Let whoever interests you come to you for the right reason. Building a relationship must be based on common interests, chemistry and similar life goals.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): A long-distance romance is likely to sprout if you travel or sign up for an online dating service. Before you decide it’s too much work, give love a chance. It may open doors to all sorts of unique possibilities that can change your life in a positive manner. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Keep your money in a safe place, and refrain from giving anyone the impression you are looking for a commitment. Approach love with a sense of freedom and fun. Take time to get to know how much you enjoy being with someone before you let possessiveness take over.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may be obliged to make some sort of promise if you have moved too quickly when it comes to being intimate with someone you just met. Before you travel down that path, make it clear that your playful action does not mean you are making a commitment. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Secret affairs are apparent. Before you decide to pursue someone, ask questions that confirm availability. Avoid being put in a vulnerable position that can end up costing you emotionally, financially or physically. Do your best to protect your assets, your reputation and your heart.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’ll be tempted to mix business with pleasure; however, before you do, consider how it can alter your life, direction and financial security. Take it slow and listen carefully to what’s actually being offered. You may want to take a pass. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your emotions will play games with you. What you think you are heading into and what you end up with are not going to resemble one another. A reality check will be required if you want to avoid a situation that is based on ulterior motives and lies.
