Endorsements and DA race preview Our general-election coverage is in two parts this year. In this issue are our endorsements for Monroe County executive, County Legislature, City Council, and the Rochester school board. There’s also a preview of the district attorney race. In next week’s issue (November 2) will be interviews with the contenders for county executive: Democrat Sandra Frankel and Republican incumbent Maggie Brooks. (Brooks’ schedule determined how we planned our coverage.) In the races for school board and City Council, we urge you to keep the incumbents in office. In the

races for county executive and County Legislature, we urge you to vote for Democrat Sandra Frankel and to return the Lej to Democratic control. Frankel has good ideas for addressing the county’s most pressing issues, and she has significant experience as an elected executive. She’s also shown that she can turn a government’s finances around. But Frankel will need a Democratic Legislature to make the dramatic changes the county needs.

Is Rochester risk-averse?

On Urban Journal’s “Riskaverse Rochester” (October 12): More hand-wringing

and “oh-woe-are-we”-ing. What’s the point? It doesn’t add anything worthwhile to the discussion about appropriate risk-taking. You always trot out the same wrong examples, leading with your prime one, the fast ferry. It’s long past time to recognize that that project was an unmitigated disaster because Bill Johnson et alia were so enamored of Burnham’s “make no small plans” notion that they abandoned any effort at due diligence. They believed that it was an idea that was too big and important to fail. Wrong: too big to fizzle, just right to collapse catastrophically. Of course FF opponents crowed loudly when it failed so spectacularly. And of course the failure dimmed chances for similar projects. Don’t blame intelligent people for being skeptical. If the Johnson administration had examined the issues with care instead of blind zeal, we might have a rightsized ferry operating now between here and Toronto, and might have had one since 2004 with plenty of ancillary benefits as well. And why blame this area for Xerox’s inability to capitalize on personal computers? They developed their contribution to that technology at the Palo Alto Research Center. And the corporate decision not to pursue it was made in Stamford, Connecticut. That screw-up bears no imprint from local thinking. Kodak is the premiere local example of self-defeating, risk-averse corporate decision-making. Their thinking was completely clouded by their long-term, self-coddling monopolistic  City

position. They couldn’t identify an appropriate direction in which to take the enormous skill set they’d developed, much of it in chemistry. They weren’t willing to replace that skill set with one based on physics and microelectronics to be able to take the lead in digital image-making. And they deluded themselves that the huge markets that were expanding in Asia would be content with the old technology long enough to let film processing supply them with whatever milk money they needed to make whatever transition they needed whenever they got around to making a decision. Despite the Kodak fiasco, the issue has never been whether people in this area are willing to take risks. Plenty have been, are now, and ever will be. The real issue is the extent to which countervailing impediments defeat them. Forget the nonsense about a defective local mindset. To the extent that you see one, it’s yours. Instead, seek out the locals who are taking appropriate risks, and find out what they see as the significant impediments to their efforts. Finally, wake up to the fact that the Burnham quote is crap. Make lots of small plans. Make some big ones, too, but vet them honestly and intelligently. Never expect the world to accommodate you or wait for you. Pay attention and make adjustments as necessary and appropriate. When the general direction of events is obvious, don’t dither and hope to slow things down. Use what you know, and get moving to a position where you can positively affect the direction of change. STEVE MURPHY, ROCHESTER

“Risk-averse Rochester” calls to mind an RIT student of mine 10 years ago. The assignment was to write a manifesto (rant), as opposed to a reasoned argument. One student complained that RIT needed a roller coaster to deliver students from the dorms to the

OCTOBER 26 - NOVEMBER 1, 2011

campus across the notoriously cold and windy Quarter-Mile in order to arrive quickly and joyously to class. Steve Jobs and others have rewardingly asked “why not?” My students have asked “why not?” Yet today’s government and job market are more apt to ask “why?” Few of my former students are still in town. Why not? Are you listening, city planners? MARIL NOWAK

Opting out of testing

On the growing emphasis on standard tests in school:

For every parent, there are times when you know the path the bureaucracy has chosen for your child is wrong and you are motivated to right it. Now is such a time for each parent in our community. Whether you live in the suburbs or the city, our children’s curriculum — what they study each day — is driven by the New York State Education Department’s desire to have all of our kids “get smart” in the same way at the same time. Parents know that individual children learn at different rates. Yet if children don’t demonstrate specific tasks in concert, the State Education Department threatens to fire teachers and close schools. These tests produce a single test score on which to make these monumental judgments. This is like judging a beauty contest based on the contestants’ driver’s license photo. A snapshot on any given day cannot assess all that a child knows. Since the tests do not feed back information about how each student did, no individual student’s curriculum can be improved by the tests results. Requiring these tests is wrong, and most teachers will tell you so (if given immunity, perhaps). Now John King, commissioner of the State Education Department, is lobbying to spend more money on testing to ad-

dress his concerns about cheating. I tell my students who feel paralyzed by our political system that you vote with your time and your energy and your money. The time is now to just say no. No more time taken away from instruction for test-taking, no more curricula hijacked by the mistaken need to get each child to perform the same way on the same day, and no more money spent on the tests. Each child can opt out of taking these punitive tests. She needs only check a box on the test booklet. Encourage your child to opt out of standardized tests and join me in the community-wide conversation about how to make our schools better through the Community Education Task Force. (communityeducationtaskforce.rocus.org)

I worked for many years in a Rochester school. The lies and cover-ups were blatant and appalling. I have a lot of respect for most teachers. They do the best they can, despite the many socio-emotional problems they encounter in their students. However, it seems that the administrators that were the least supportive of their teachers, the administrators that lied the most to covered their backs, were the ones that were promoted. I know there are some honest and dedicated administrators, for whom I have a lot of respect, but from what I have seen, they are not the majority. The students’ educational and emotional needs are not being met largely due to this politicking.

ELIZABETH LAIDLAW,

Once again I read an article about the problems in our schools (“The ‘Testification’ of Schools”). And once again, after questioning different systems and programs and pointing fingers and wondering what the teachers or principals or administrators or the government or corporate America can do for our children, I see one word that is blatantly missing in this article as well as many others. The word is “parent.” Are we under the rules of political correctness and are not allowed to point fingers at “poor” parents because they are exempt from participation in the schooling system? Why is it that parents are never blamed for their children’s progress or behavior? Are they so far removed from the process that all these studies don’t even detect them anymore? Where are the parents?

What will help children learn?

On Jeffrey Linn’s guest commentary, “The ‘Tes-

tification’ of Schools in America” (October 5): I’m a recipient of the education of one of the smaller European countries. In my country, there were no rich or poor schools. Every school got what it needed. I took it all for granted until I came to the US. The corporations were not as powerful in my country. And they were definitely not considered “people.” They didn’t buy politicians to push testing on us. Some might have tried. I believe that my people would have seen through the hypocrisy that is so rampant in the politics here. I agree with Linn that the testing does nothing to help the kids learn. It fills the pockets of the corporations that bought the politicians. One thing I want to add to the article is the negative effects on the students of the politics in the City School District.

2011 ELECTION SPECIAL

Frankel for exec, Democrats for Lej Monroe County needs a dramatic change in government. The community has tremendous resources and potential, but Republican administrations, current and past, have either set their sights so low, or have been so cynical, that without change we see little hope for the region’s future. For those reasons and more, we are endorsing Democrat Sandy Frankel for county executive, and we urge voters to elect a Democratic majority to the County Legislature. Frankel has good ideas for addressing the county’s most pressing issues, and she has significant experience as an elected executive. She’s also shown that she can turn a government’s finances around: an important consideration since the county faces annual multimillion-dollar budget deficits. When Frankel took over as Brighton supervisor 20 years ago, she inherited a serious deficit. Through a combination of measures — rolling back her own pay, freezing spending, eliminating redundant positions, and raising taxes — she closed it. Brighton’s budgets have been healthy since, and that, Frankel says, has allowed town officials to focus on things like improving sidewalks and creating parks. (Frankel did receive regular pay raises once the town’s finances improved: hardly unusual behavior for an elected supervisor.) Having fresh eyes go over the county budget wouldn’t hurt, either. Frankel says that if elected she’ll have the county audited to root out unnecessary spending. She says she would submit the budget in October so it’s out before the election, and she’d also establish a budget advisory committee made up of volunteers with diverse financial or operational expertise. By trimming some areas, like the amount of property it rents, the county could better fund other things, like day-care subsidies and home lead inspections, Frankel says. And Frankel’s focus on open, transparent government is important. During her time as supervisor, she and the Brighton Town Board formed citizens committees to address or examine pressing issues, including the budget. They also established four committees within the Town Board to deal with specific functions like public safety and public works. The county needs to increase oversight on its local development corporations and Frankel’s plans are a good start. She proposes

putting legislators on the boards and requiring legislative approval of LDC budgets. Those measures would provide a greater level of public accountability and transparency. Local development corporations are not-for-profit entities formed by a government or for a government’s benefit. This paper has long been concerned with the way the county industrial development agency distributes tax breaks. Too often, the benefits go to businesses that are simply moving from one part of the county to another or that create few jobs. The subsidies granted to retail and hotel projects are also troublesome. Frankel describes COMIDA’s policy as “a giveaway to anyone who walks in the door.” She says she wants a focused strategy, like targeting the most promising businesses for incentives. That process should follow the work of the Finger Lakes Regional Economic Development Council. In temperament, incumbent County Executive Maggie Brooks, a Republican, has certainly been a relief from her predecessor, Jack Doyle. But her administration has faced several scandals, including the former airport director’s questionable business expenses, and Robutrad. That county-labor partnership fell apart after a county supervisor falsified pay records of continues on page 6

Monroe ahead in job growth

Job growth in Monroe and four surrounding counties was the highest in Upstate New York State. The Rochester region far outpaced Syracuse and Buffalo, adding more than 10,000 jobs between September 2010 and September 2011. Most of the jobs were in business services, education, health care, and manufacturing.

Activists protest police

Local activists demonstrated outside City Hall to protest the police shooting death of Columbia Avenue resident Hayden Blackman. Blackman was shot and killed after, police say, ignoring police commands to drop the knife he was holding.

Congel in court?

The Irondequoit Town Board voted to pursue legal action against Medley Centre developer Scott Congel. Little has happened at the project site on East Ridge Road, and town officials say that Congel hasn’t kept up with promised payments. The developer has argued, however, that he doesn’t have to pay until he starts construction or demolition work on the site.

AG subpoenas UTC

Plan released

The Finger Lakes Regional Economic Development Council released an incomplete draft of its strategic plan. It highlights several priority industry clusters: higher education; advanced health care and life sciences; optics, imaging, and photonics; energy innovation; advanced manufacturing; business services, software, and telecommunications; agriculture and food processing; and tourism and the arts.

Charlotte group supports port plans Team Charlotte, an offshoot of the Charlotte Community Association, is overwhelmingly supportive of the city’s plans to redevelop the Port of Rochester, says Kathleen Strauss, a co-chair of Team Charlotte. The group consists of neighborhood block groups, churches, and businesses. “We can’t wait to get rid of the mystique of ‘the beach with the parking lot,’” Strauss says. “That’s what we’re known as in the boating community.” Port plans include a 157-slip marina and residential, commercial, and retail development. The project should begin next year and be

completed in the spring of 2014, says a city press release. Team Charlotte has put together a statement affirming its support of the project, as well as outlining some concerns. Some people are worried the new buildings may be too high and block lake views, Strauss says. And there’s also some concern, she says, that there won’t be enough parking in the summer or for special events. (Team Charlotte’s full statement can be found at www.rochestercitynewspaper.com ) City Council member Carla Palumbo, whose district includes the port, says she, too, has heard mostly positive things about the

redevelopment project. “Some people don’t want anything done, and some people say the project is not for the average person,” Palumbo says. “But I think the majority of people like the plan.” A public hearing on the project is at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, November 1, in City Council Chambers at City Hall, 30 Church Street. Display boards with renderings of what the redeveloped port could look like will be posted in the City Hall atrium beginning at 5:30 p.m. the day of the meeting.

Redesign for Young Mothers program?

Super search sharpens

The city school district’s Young Mothers program was created to prevent students from turning a questionable decision into a lifetime of difficulty. About 130 students or half of the district’s pregnant teens entered the voluntary program last year. Young Mothers helps the teens stay in school and graduate, but school board member Willa Powell says the program needs to be redesigned to be more effective. Powell plans to propose an overhaul of the Young Mothers program at the school board’s October 27 meeting. Powell says she wants to move the program from 30 Hart Street to Dr. Freddie Thomas High School at 625 Scio Street. And she says she wants to convert Young Mothers into a multi-year mother-and-child support system. The Montessori School, which has an infant and toddler program, is moving into the Scio Street building. By making the Montessori School with onsite daycare available to pregnant teens, the Young Mothers program could become a robust educational environment, Powell says, with a birth-to-elementary school pathway. The Young Mothers program provides students in grades 7 to 12 an environment that combines academic support with prenatal care and parenting training.

2011 ELECTION SPECIAL Frankel for exec, Democrats for Lej contracted trades workers. The workers got paid for doing private jobs on county time. Brooks says, rightly, that when problems were brought to her attention, she acted. But that action has not been as strong or decisive as it should be. And the fact remains that these problems stem from a lack of oversight. Take the most recent scandal, which involves Upstate Telecommunications Corporation, an LDC. The county farmed out its technology upgrades to UTC, whose board members are appointed by the county executive. The problems with the relationship were outlined in a state comptroller’s report, which says the county hasn’t effectively managed the contract with UTC and is likely overpaying for the equipment. The report also suggests that the contractor who ended up managing UTC had inside information. But Brooks says the report’s timing — coming out shortly before the election — is suspicious, and its strong language is atypical. She suggests politics may be to blame. And the idea that UTC is a scandal has been manufactured by Democrats, she says. Ultimately, the report comes down to a dispute over the county’s projected savings, Brooks says. There are advantages to LDCs. They can be useful single-purpose tools, especially since they are exempt from things like competitive bidding requirements. But when abused, the disadvantages outweigh the advantages. Specifically, LDCs often lack transparency and oversight. They’re also exempt from Comptroller’s Office audits. The county has outsourced several functions to LDCs: Monroe Newpower owns and operates a former county power plant,

continued from page 3

Civic Center Monroe County owns and operates a former county parking garage, and Monroe Security and Safety Systems owns and is upgrading public safety communications equipment. Brooks says the public-private partnerships operate with private-sector efficiency and public-sector oversight. But the same small circle of people have their hands in these LDCs. Attorney Michael Townsend set them all up and he remains involved with them, while also serving as attorney for the county’s industrial development agency. Hank Stuart, a financial advisor, serves as president of all of their boards. Greece town attorney and former Republican County Legislator Ray Di Raddo serves on all of the LDCs, as well. Attorney Aaron Sperano serves on all but Monroe Safety and Security, which has several additional members. Anthony Feroce, the county controller, is Brooks’ non-voting representative on all of the LDC boards. The connections continue beyond the boards. Dick Mackey was deputy county executive at the time the UTC deal was approved, and he advocated for it. Soon after the deal went through, he left county government and started consulting for UTC. And Stephen Gleason, a former county finance director, is chief operating officer of Navitech, which has management contracts with UTC and another county-created LDC: Monroe Security and Safety Systems. This small circle of people, who are loyal to the county executive and the Republican Party control millions of dollars in assets and contracts. At minimum, that presents a problem of perception: it perpetuates the feel of a closed government. And when combined

with the controversies surrounding the LDCs, questions about favoritism or sweetheart deals are only natural. And the people involved in the Brooksera scandals aren’t just a couple of low-level employees gone rogue. For example, the former airport director was wooing clients with expensive cigars or at strip clubs. And there was Brooks’ reluctance to get involved when Republican appointees on the Monroe Community College board tried to install a former county legislator as college president. The need for change is clear and compelling. But Frankel alone will not be able to make the changes Monroe County needs. She’ll also need a Democratic majority in the County Legislature. Democrats say they see themselves as watchdogs and a check on the executive, no matter which party holds the office. While Democratic legislators may share Frankel’s philosophies and goals, they say they’ll still offer critical examination of administration proposals. As it is, Democrats offer the only meaningful discussion of administrative actions, and all too often Republicans try to stop that discussion. Rarely do Republican legislators offer any critical examination of administration proposals, at least not publicly. That’s because the legislators and Brooks are philosophically aligned, says Republican Majority Leader Dan Quatro. “It isn’t that we’re a rubber stamp,” he says. “We just work well together.” On the recent LDC and airport authority scandals, Republican legislators have deferred to Brooks and they’ve killed Democratic proposals aimed at increasing LDC oversight. The same pattern played out after Robutrad.

Republicans bury practically every Democratic proposal — Quatro says Democratic legislation is often meant simply to generate partisan division — and appear unresponsive to many of their concerns. And it’s not just the Democratic legislators they’ve ignored. They rammed through Brooks’ FAIR plan despite community concerns. And several years ago they muscled their way through the appointment of a public defender, even though many minority, faith, legal, and academic leaders fought for an open, independent process. By their actions, Republicans are denying representation to many county residents. And every city legislative district has a Democratic representative, so the city’s voice is stifled. The GOP has hurt the city in other ways, too. Republican administrations have slowly cut the amount of funding given to the city for things like downtown police patrols. And they’ve altered the way Monroe Community College is funded, shifting more of the burden to city residents. Democratic Leader Ted O’Brien says his caucus would be willing to let Republican legislation into committees for debate. No one person knows how to fix the county’s problems, he says, and Democrats want to work with Republicans. That’s the sort of spirit the current Legislature lacks. Government is supposed to be deliberative: ideas need open discussion. That doesn’t happen when one side systematically shuts down the other. Even the all-Democratic city government has open debates about proposals and issues. It’s time for a new way of doing business in Monroe County.

For City Council: McFadden, Palumbo, Spaull The races for City Council this year have taken place mostly below the radar. But though they lack the drama of the city school board races or the visibility of the county executive race, they are nevertheless critically important. The next Council has the future of Midtown and the continued revitalization of downtown to deal with, while making sure neighborhoods don’t get short shrift — some neighborhoods seem poised to go either way: they could rebound or suffer further deterioration. There’s the possibility that mayoral control of the  City

school district may resurface, the transit center will probably get built, and the first phase of a massive development project at the port will get under way. Many say downtown is at a tipping point in terms of housing, and that means more developers could begin looking this way. It will be up to Council and the administration to guide that growth, while finding real ways for the poor in the inner city to share in whatever prosperity may result. Rochester’s 2010 poverty rate was 29.4 percent, according

to a state report. The city, the report says, has more than 20,000 children living in poverty. This is all happening, by the way, against a backdrop of declining resources: health-care and pension costs continue to skyrocket, and some say the economy is headed back into recession. The city will almost certainly face another good-sized budget gap next year. In short, this is no time or place for amateurs. Some may argue for fresh faces and young blood, but keep in mind that a majority of Council members have been there

less than five years. And Council has a good mix of younger and older members. For November’s general election, City endorses Democratic incumbents Adam McFadden, Carla Palumbo, and Elaine Spaull for City Council. Council President Lovely Warren is running unopposed.

Adam McFadden, South District

McFadden is easily the most unpredictable member of City Council: speaking out on the


Trick or Treat and are essential in a city like Rochester. The city has to find ways to balance the needs of business owners and residents, both. It’s interesting, too, that White didn’t bring up issues that the inner-city poor are concerned about, given the composition of the South District. (White has posted a short video on his ideas for fighting crime in the city on YouTube, www.youtube.com/user/AlexWhiteforrocheste.) McFadden may be a divisive figure, but there are many in the city who feel he, of all the Council people, truly speaks for them. That representation is too important to lose.

lack of minority representation on the police force one minute, and speaking tenderly about Rochester’s inner-city youth the next minute. McFadden surprised some people earlier this year when he voted with the Council majority to hold a special election for mayor. Some who felt shortchanged by the lack of a Democratic primary accused McFadden of self-interest, or even betrayal. But McFadden was back in agitator mode when he took on the Rochester Police Department following two high-profile and controversial arrests earlier this year. He publicly accused the RPD of being out of control. McFadden seems to have been able to channel that outrage, however, into productive action. He formed and is one of the leaders of a commission to review the police oversight system — a sign, perhaps, of the more seasoned, cooperative politician that his colleagues say McFadden has become. There are concerns, however, about the transparency and makeup of the commission. McFadden faces Alex White of the Green Party and Diane Watkins, who has the Working Families line. Watkins lost to McFadden in the Democratic primary and has been pretty quiet since. As a teacher in the city school district, Watkins has said that, if elected to Council, she could help improve the relationship between City Council and the school board. But in our interview, Watkins sometimes displayed a lack of understanding in how Council and city government works. White has some good ideas, including his plan to start a citywide association for small businesses — businesses on the scale of a pizza parlor, for example. These startups could use help navigating through red tape. White complains about regulations and zoning restrictions — and it’s fair to ask if they’re overly burdensome — but they grew out of years of intense, lengthy public involvement

Palumbo says she likes to work behind the scenes, but it’s clear she’s not afraid to speak her mind, either. After City Council approved legislation enabling the Mortimer Street transit center to proceed and moved into discussions about design, there were those still trying to get Council to stop the center all together. Palumbo essentially told them to move on — the best way to have an impact is to help with the design, she said — and not everyone appreciated the reality check.

Palumbo pushed for the creation of a master plan for the JOSANA neighborhood to make sure development there isn’t slipshod or sporadic. And after hearing concerns from the community, Palumbo says she helped ensure that renovations planned for School 17 included space for public use. There are those — including Palumbo’s Republican challenger, Andy Rau — who say Palumbo isn’t as present in the neighborhoods as she should be. But people in the Charlotte Community Association praise her. They say Palumbo is an excellent continues on page 8 rochestercitynewspaper.com

representative and that she was invaluable in keeping the Charlotte library open when city budget problems put the library on the chopping block. Rau is engaging. He’s heavily involved in the Maplewood Neighborhood Association, sitting on its board of directors and chairing the infrastructure committee. He seems knowledgeable about a wide variety of city issues, the history behind those issues, and could be a good Council member. It’s gratifying to hear him say there needs to be closer examination of tax breaks and incentives given to businesses that simply move from one part of the city to another, for example. But Council members say it takes at least a full term to get up to speed and become a fully functioning, contributing member. Given the critical spot the city’s in and the fact that Palumbo says this is probably her last

term, the city should take advantage of her knowledge and experience while it can. Palumbo is also challenged by write-in candidate James Muscatella. Muscatella is a longtime member and president of the People of Dutchtown neighborhood group, and sat on various government boards during the administrations of Bill Johnson and Bob Duffy. He says many residents feel disenfranchised from city government and that he wants to bring the voice of average people back into the decision-making process.

Elaine Spaull, East District

Interviewing Spaull is kind of like hanging on to the side of a bullet train while occasionally yelling out things like, “But how do you feel about mayoral controoolllll?” She moves fast, talks fast, and if you’re not on your game you’ll be left behind. Spaull is Council’s vice president and a staunch advocate for Rochester’s youth. She

When you pick your district Council people next month, you will also have the chance to vote on the process to fill vacancies in the mayor’s office.

claims to have the energy of a 13-year-old boy, and watching her, you believe it. She’s well-known in the district and beyond, and seems to show up everywhere, whether it’s a neighborhood meeting, a rally downtown, or spending time with crime victims and their families. Spaull initiated a partnership between her agency — the Center for Youth — and the city school district to open New Beginnings — a school for troubled boys trying to get their lives back on track. She announced recently that the school would expand. Spaull also helped start an “aging-in-place” retirement community in Browncroft. The members of the neighborhood groups we spoke to say Spaull is a hard worker, responsive to neighborhood needs, a regular attendee at meetings, and doesn’t see government as the answer to every problem. One of Spaull’s latest projects is working as a liaison between the police department and East End bar, club, and other business owners over concerns about police coverage. The city is grappling with ways to keep sufficient police presence in the East End’s bustling night scene while resources are shrinking. Spaull says some form of publicprivate partnership may be the answer. Spaull’s opponent is Republican Rich Tyson, a young up-and-comer. Tyson is enthusiastic and has good basic knowledge of city workings,

but seems to lack depth in some areas. He criticizes city regulations and taxes, for example, while at the same time calling for more services and more investment in neighborhoods. To his credit, he is honest about the fact that he is not well-versed in such topics as the city’s state-aid situation or its Maintenance of Effort agreement with city schools. Tyson could make a good Council person down the line, but again, at this critical point, the city needs experience at the helm.

ENDORSEMENTS | BY CITY EDITORIAL STAFF

For Rochester school board: Evans, Powell, and Campos On November 8, voters in Monroe County will choose many of the people who will run local government, preside over the courts, and determine school policy. It is no exaggeration to say that the four Rochester school board seats on city voters’ ballots are among the most important. Eight candidates are running for those four seats: incumbents Malik Evans (on the Democratic and Independence lines), Willa Powell (Democratic and Working Families), and Melisza Campos (Democratic and Independence), and non-incumbents Mary Adams (Democratic and Green Party), Howard Eagle (Green), Wallace Smith (Green), Mia Hodgins (Working Families and Rochester’s Parents United), and Glenny Williams (Working Families).  City

OCTOBER 26 - NOVEMBER 1, 2011

All but Williams and Hodgins were candidates in the Democratic primary in September. As we did before that election, we’re endorsing only three candidates for the four seats: incumbents Evans, Powell, and Campos. A strong and broad coalition is pushing for widespread reform in the district, and its members are urging that most of the incumbents be voted out of office. We strongly disagree. The problems the district faces —low student achievement and graduation rates, a high dropout rate — are not the fault of the school board. They are rooted in poverty and in parental and cultural problems. And despite the non-incumbents’ enthusiasm, long-time dedication, and obvious, sincere commitment to helping the children of Rochester, we don’t believe that

they bring strengths that the incumbents lack. And several of them have a history of such angry disruptiveness that we’re concerned that they would do more harm than good as board members. As we said in our primary endorsement, Evans, Powell, and Campos are smart and committed, and they understand the role of an elected official. They have a depth and maturity that most of the others lack. They have been solid board members and deserve re-election. The other candidates: You can find our

Smith are passionate, committed activists, but too often their efforts on behalf of Rochester’s children are marked by emotional outbursts, shouting at and trying to humiliate board members and school district staff. This board has experienced enough of those problems from a couple of current members; the last thing it needs is more volatility. Regarding Glenny Williams: Anyone who

attends city school board meetings with some regularity will probably know Williams. An engaged parent and grandparent of city school students, Williams can be a sharptongued critic and a touchingly eloquent advocate. He has strong views about the district’s many problems and about the Rochester community that hasn’t been able to solve them during the last 20 years. For instance, Williams is not a big believer of poverty’s influence on the district’s educational outcomes. He believes instead that Rochester’s low graduation

rate has more to do with the attitudes and low expectations of some teachers, parents, and students. Not having higher

Willa Powell. FILE PHOTO

expectations suggests that we believe that African American and Latino students are intellectually inferior, Williams says.

Williams says previous superintendents have cut their teeth on Rochester — gotten the experience that they came here lacking and then moved on. The school board should hire someone who is committed to staying in Rochester longer, he says, and the board needs to be more rigorous in holding superintendents accountable for their performance. While Williams is caring and committed, his knowledge about the difficult challenges facing this district — and the possible solutions — is not as deep as that of the incumbents. Williams correctly says the answer to many of the district’s problems is increased parent involvement. But he tends to underestimate how hard it’s been for the district to encourage basic parental responsibilities like attendance. And while he insists that he could work collaboratively with other board members, we’re not sure he would.

ELECTIONS | BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN

DA race: Doorley vs. Taylor Both candidates for Monroe County district attorney say the race to replace Mike Green is about experience. For Democrat Sandra Doorley, that means 20 years with the DA’s office, beginning as an assistant district attorney and eventually becoming that office’s second in command. For Republican Bill Taylor, it means a career that includes time as an assistant DA in the county office, Monroe County attorney, and counsel to County Executive Maggie Brooks. This more diverse path, Taylor says, makes him a better candidate for the DA’s job. The DA’s race has been unusual this year because of the Mike Green wrinkle. The Democratic DA is up for a federal judgeship, but after approval by a Senate committee, his confirmation by the full Senate seems stuck in political purgatory. (Green says he can’t talk about his confirmation.) Dems, wanting to keep the DA door open as long as possible for the popular Green, were slow to name a candidate, giving Taylor a significant advantage in fund raising and in courting time with voters. “It’s changed the nature of the campaign,” Doorley says. Both Doorley and Taylor say that politics has no place in the DA’s office. Taylor probably has a little more to prove on that front, given 10 City OCTOBER 26 - NOVEMBER 1, 2011

his connection to a county administration prone to scandals mired in allegations of cronyism and political favoritism. “Our office is to seek justice, not to be an arm of county government,” Doorley says. “You’ve got to make an independent judgment based on the facts. And you shouldn’t be aligned with any party.” Based on Taylor’s career history, Doorley says she questions his ability to be independent. But Taylor says his motives are pure and he’s disappointed that Doorley would challenge his integrity. “I want to do this job so much because I know that I can help our community,” he says. “Politics will have no place. It hasn’t as county attorney, and it won’t when I’m the district attorney. No matter what the situation is, it would be handled in a fair and impartial manner. You owe that to the people you work for.” Taylor is easy to like. He has a youthful charm and energy and is so eager to be DA that to deny him the chance almost seems mean. Doorley is worldlier and projects calm confidence, talking about an embezzling granny and Doorley’s successful prosecution of cross-dressing killer Brian Woodall as if she’s relaying the plot of a movie she’d seen the night before.

The district attorney’s office handles between 30,000 and 35,000 cases a year. In 2010, it handled 5,525 felony cases and 29,790 misdemeanor cases. Sandra Doorley joined the DA’s office as an

assistant district attorney in 1992. She was a litigator in several bureaus, including DWI, Domestic Violence, and Major Felony. She received her first supervisory position in 2004, when she became chief of the Felony DWI Bureau, which handles all of the felony DWI cases in Monroe County. She later became deputy chief of the Major Felony Bureau and then in 2008 moved rapidly from second assistant district attorney to first assistant district attorney — second only to DA Green. Doorley is currently chief of the Appeals and Homicide Bureaus, supervising all homicide prosecutions and showing up at every homicide scene in the county. “Every time there’s a homicide, I get the phone call from 911,” she says. Doorley has prosecuted more than 1,000 felony cases, more than 30 of them homicides. She’s won more than 25 of those cases. She repeatedly emphasizes her experience and points out that Taylor has never tried a murder case. “My first murder case occurred before he was even admitted to the bar,” she says.

“When I joined the DA’s office, he was in junior high.” “The DA must be a leader,” Doorley says. “Sometimes you’ve got to make decisions quickly at 3 in the morning when you’re standing over a body. You can’t be calling someone else to say, ‘Hey, what do I do in this case?’ My 20 years is invaluable, and it can’t be replaced.” Doorley has also prosecuted and won several high-profile cases, including that of

Greece cop Nick Joseph and former Greece Police Chief Merritt Rahn. As DA, Doorley says she would create a Citizens Advisory Board to “open the lines of communication” with the people the office serves. Board members would also offer feedback on the office’s performance, she says. Doorley says she’d also like to create separate bureaus for domestic violence and childabuse cases. The cases are together now in the Domestic Violence Child Abuse Bureau. “Studies show that a domestic-violence victim needs different and separate resources than a child-abuse victim,” she says. “They need separate and distinct tools and investigators and social workers.” Doorley says she’s working to prevent backlogs in the DA’s office by making sure cases keep moving through the system. “My goal is to know where every single case is at every single minute of the day,” she says. Doorley says she noticed that a growing number of white-collar financial crimes were beginning to overwhelm the County Court Bureau, so she formed a special unit to deal with those crimes. “In this economy, it’s a growing area,” she says. Bill Taylor was an assistant district attorney in

the DA’s office for four years before becoming deputy county attorney and then chief deputy county attorney. He was county attorney from 2009 to 2011, overseeing Monroe’s law department. Currently, he’s counsel to County Executive Brooks, offering legal advice to Brooks and other county department heads. Contrary to Doorley’s assertions, Taylor says he qualified to handle any case that comes the DA’s way. “I’ve dealt with the most serious criminaljustice issues out there: homicide cases, depraved-indifference murder cases, deathpenalty cases,” Taylor says. “So I understand the legal issues related to homicide. And I’ve also tried a number of cases. I’m very comfortable handling any kind of case.” Having practiced law outside the DA’s office gives him a unique and invaluable point of view, Taylor says. “I bring something that no one’s ever brought in the sense that I have an insideoutside perspective,” he says. “To really understand and lead an organization, I think you have to understand it from the inside and understand it from the outside so you can make changes to improve the office. My breadth of experience is something that my opponent just doesn’t have.”

The county attorney is also secretary of the airport authority — a position Taylor held from December 2009 to May 2011. It was during this time that then-airport director David Damelio resigned after it was revealed he had charged questionable expenses to the county, including expensive cigars and visits to strip clubs. Taylor says that as secretary, all he did was keep meeting minutes. “When the situation came to light, I worked very hard with the county executive and her team to draft policies to make sure it would never happen again,” he says. The best way to keep track of expenses, Taylor says, is to attach credit-card statements to the minutes of every meeting. In terms of initiatives, Taylor says he wants to create a special-victims unit in the DA’s office to handle elder abuse, sexual assault, and childabuse cases. The victims of these crimes are especially vulnerable, Taylor says, so the people working with these victims need special training. Taylor says he also wants more resources devoted to getting illegal guns off the streets. He says he would look at combining a few bureaus so the gun bureau would have the resources it needs to more effectively prosecute illegal gun cases. Taylor says he would work closely with police agencies so his office has the latest information on what’s going on with different gangs, for example. And he would work on crime prevention by talking to kids in schools about the danger of gun violence and the importance of making good choices. And he says he would encourage his assistant district attorneys to do the same. “They should all feel lucky to have the job and feel a debt of service to the community,” he says.

When brothers Fausto and Massimo Albano opened Lemoncello Café and Lounge (137 W. Commercial St., East Rochester) a year and a half ago, it was with the dream of being a part of East Rochester’s reawakening. Many people would argue that the pair has been successful in that goal. Now the duo, along with new partners Giovanni Castelli, Jr. and Gianluca Isopi, plans to do the something similar for newly booming Farmington with the new venture Prosecco Italian Restaurant and Jazz Bar (named for the Italian sparkling white wine), which opened earlier this month in the space formerly inhabited by Carmen’s Ice Cream and Miniature Golf. “Carmen’s owner came to Lemoncello and he loved what we did there,” Massimo says. “So he asked us to take over and renovate the Carmen’s space. He was so excited about Farmington that he made us really excited, too.” While the neighboring areas of Victor and Canandaigua have many fine-dining establishments, Farmington itself has only a handful by comparison. And yet, Farmington is a convenient location for Rochester residents to stop for a meal on their way to destinations in the Finger Lakes. With an authentic Italian menu (influenced by its owners, all four of whom hail from Italy)

National chain Wings Over [Insert City Name Here] has opened its first area location — Wings Over Rochester — in Henrietta, in a space formerly inhabited by a KFC. The chain is known for its large variety of wings and selfproclaimed “jet-speed” delivery service. The menu features regular and boneless wings with a choice of more than 20 sauces (including unique choices like spicy teriyaki, citrus chipotle, and sweet onion barbeque), ribs, burgers, and salads. Wings Over Rochester is located at 2973 W. Henrietta Road. Prices for single diners range from $5 to $16, though family combos and larger orders of wings cost up to $120. The restaurant is open Monday-Wednesday 4 p.m.-1 a.m., Thursday 4 p.m.-3 a.m., Friday-Saturday 11 a.m.-3 a.m., and Sunday noon-1 a.m. For more information, call 272-9464 or visit wingsoverrochester.com.

Farm aid and an ambiance that exudes casual elegance, Prosecco may just become a destination itself. The menu features a wide range of appetizers, salads, pastas, entrees, and pizzas with notable selections in every category. There’s arancini (fried risotto balls), made fresh daily by co-owner and executive chef Castelli with rotating ingredients; fettuccine con funghi with oven-roasted mushrooms sautéed with shallots, tarragon, and asparagus in a light truffle cream sauce, topped with goat cheese; and Castelli’s specialty, cioppino, which combines shrimp, clams, mussels, and scallops in a light tomato broth served over spaghetti. Co-owner and pizza chef Isopi, who owned a pizzeria in Abruzzi, Italy, for years, also does his part by offering a dozen varieties of pizza, including the frutti di mare topped with clams, shrimp, and anchovies; the Italiana made with prosciutto cotto, grape tomatoes, arugula, and shaved parmigiano-reggiano; or the ligure topped with chicken, pesto, caramelized onions, and sun-dried tomatoes. The restaurant’s interior is dressed in coowner Fausto’s adept decorative handiwork (he also renovated Lemoncello’s interior), with a gorgeous cement-top community-style table, inlaid stone and tiles on the floors and walls, and a raised, semi-circle stage adorned with a large decorative curtain rod for the restaurant’s daily live music. Outside, the restaurant has two patios (one on either side) for eating

alfresco in nicer weather and, remaining from its previous incarnation, a miniature golf course that the owners intend to keep running in the spring and summer. “It makes a great waiting area for adults with children,” says Massimo. Prosecco Italian Restaurant is located at 1550 Route 332 in Farmington. Prices range from $8 to $26. It is open for lunch Monday-Friday 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. and for dinner MondayThursday 5-10 p.m., Friday-Saturday 5-11 p.m., and Sunday 4-9 p.m. For more information, call 924-8000 or visit proseccoitalianrestaurant.com.

Brunch-alicious

Wegmans-owned Next Door Bar and Grill is now serving brunch on Sundays 11 a.m.-2 p.m. The brunch menu includes appetizers, salads, sandwiches, specialty brunch entrees, and drinks. Notable items include fried organic green tomatoes served with tomato jam, jumbo lump crab, arugula salad, and herbed ricotta; deviled eggs benedict served with country ham and Cajun hollandaise; duck confit salad with arugula, frisée (curly endive), sunchokes, currant mustard vinaigrette, and crispy shiitake mushrooms; and shrimp and grits served with a trio of peppers, applewood-smoked bacon, and sharp cheddar cheese. Drink choices include bloody marys, mimosas, screwdrivers, and a

Dressing up like a ho for Halloween in order to score cheap food is a bad idea, but dressing up like a hoe for the same purpose is wholly encouraged. In fact, if you show up on Halloween (Monday, October 31) to any of the three area locations of the national chain Chipotle Mexican Grill (3349 Monroe Ave.; 640 Jefferson Road; 1360 Mount Hope Ave.) dressed in a costume inspired by family farms you’ll receive one of its design-your-own burritos for only $2 (typically $6.45-$6.85). Plus, you’ll be entered into a costume contest with a chance to win $2,500, $1,000, or a burrito party for 10. And if that’s not enough reason to dress as a garden tool or farm animal while noshing on a burrito, all proceeds (up to $1 million dollars) also benefit the Chipotle Cultivate Foundation and FarmAid, both of which support family farms. For more information, visit chipotle.com.

Closing

After more than four years in Corn Hill Landing, Virtu (284 Exchange Blvd.) closed suddenly earlier this month. The popular upscale restaurant was known for its seasonally updated bistro menu that featured tasting and sharing plates, pastas, and entrees ranging from braised short ribs to pan-seared ahi tuna. Attempts to reach owner David Alkaher went unreturned, but a legal summons has been posted on the restaurant’s door and the restaurant has been lights out since its appearance on October 7. rochestercitynewspaper.com City 13

Road to Morocco [ review ] by frank de blase

Maybe they couldn’t find a babysitter. Or maybe they just sound good together and wanted to bring it to the people. Regardless, the Tedeschi Trucks Band is a gale force of classic rock fortified with the blues, with a little r&b tossed in as well. Saturday night the band filled the Auditorium Theatre to the brim. The band is big — big enough to do just about anything — yet sleek enough not to get in its own way. The two drummers thing? I don’t get it. I don’t mind it, I’ve seen it before (Allman Brothers), but don’t get it. Two guitars? I get that, and we all got it by the Tedeschi Trucks load Saturday night. Tedeschi’s singing just gets better and better, mightier and mightier. Her playing style is a little more reserved, especially in contrast to her hubby’s freight-train-on-greased-wheels style. Everything takes a step back when this guy’s on stage, or it risks getting flattened. Saturday’s show was the most I’ve ever seen Trucks move. Usually he just stands there like a cigar-store Indian. It’s not like broke into a soft-shoe number or duck walk a la Chuck — though for some reason I think it would be cool for

Trucks and Tedeschi to both break into “The Road To Morocco” right in the middle of a concert. The band played a generous set and proved this is more than simply an indulgence on its namesakes’ parts. Besides, they don’t need no stinkin’ babysitters. Bring the brats on the road. Let them see exotic locales, like Rochester. Bands have been griping to me lately about how it’s hard to fill venues with bodies that want to hear original music, what with all the competition from TV shows like “Hoarders” and internet porn. But I think the solution is to break up, wait a while, then put on a kick-ass reunion show just like Snaggletooth did Saturday night at Monty’s Krown. The band dissolved a few years back after releasing just one album (I believe). Newly reunited, the band hasn’t lost a thing, other than some dreadlocks here and there. It played a powerful set in the stoner-thrash vein. It was actually more of a groove than merely a beat, just louder and in a lower gear. It was savage, sweaty, and sweet. Hope this wasn’t a one-off affair.

Music largely adoring females. “We know how the bills get paid,” says Downing. “This is who I sing to; this is my target audience. I’m talking about things they want to talk about.” He’s currently working on a new project, three EPs, “Yesterday,” “Today,” and “Tomorrow.” “Yesterday” will be all remakes, “Today” contemporary songs As for “Tomorrow,” “I haven’t figured that out yet,” Downing says. Downing now controls his career, but it wasn’t

Soul survivor Will Downing Sunday, October 30 Kodak Hall, Eastman Theatre, 60 Gibbs St. 7 p.m. | $25-$85 | 263-7938, newjazzforthepark.org [ PROFILE ] BY RON NETSKY

Will Downing is a member of an endangered species: storytelling soul stylists who can really sing. Three decades ago similar vocalists like Luther Vandross and Peabo Bryson took songs to the top of the charts. In the rap/hip-hop era, Downing’s music is consigned to urbancontemporary radio. Downing, who headlines the Jazz For The Park benefit for Wilson Commencement Park Sunday, believes much of today’s music leaves listeners aesthetically malnourished. “We’re living in an era of fast food,” says Downing. “It tastes great going down but an hour or two later you’ve forgotten that you’ve eaten. We don’t value artistry anymore. People don’t want to take the time to write a real song anymore because it’s not appreciated.” The youngest of four children, Downing was raised on the music his parents and siblings brought home — artists like 16 City OCTOBER 26 - NOVEMBER 1, 2011

Ray Charles and Earth Wind & Fire. By comparison, he says today’s music resembles The Emperor’s New Clothes. “Everyone knows the guy’s naked but everyone’s afraid to say it. There’s no substance to it. There are decent singers out there but the songs aren’t that great. It just breaks your heart because I’m looking at this whole thing crumble and fall apart right in front of my face.” Stars of the past were Downing’s role models.

He remembers watching the Jackson 5 on TV. “I’d see my sisters going crazy over Michael or Jermaine. I’m thinking, I can do that. Or James Brown. I’d start dancing around the house. I can do that. I pretty much did that my whole life until I did that.” While in high school he began making demos for songwriters. If they needed a smooth voice to approximate the sound of a particular artist he’d sing for $25 or $50. When a song he demoed was recorded by Freddie Jackson, “that made me feel like I was somebody,” says Downing. Around that time his greatest role-model was emerging. The first time he heard Vandross was on an Army commercial: “Be All That You Can Be.” “I remember thinking, man, that guy can sing. Then I heard his

voice with the group Change. But when you bought the album there was no picture. No one knew what he looked like. I went to a concert and they start playing their hit. This big guy walks out and we’re like no, that’s not him, get out of here. Then he opens his mouth and it was him.” It wasn’t long before Downing met Vandross in person. They were recording in different studios at Manhattan’s Media Sound. During a break he was playing Space Invaders when he looked over at the Pac-Man player next to him. “I’m thinking, that’s that guy,” says Downing. “Years later we really met.” Storytelling is so important to Downing that

he refers to his latest album, “Lust, Love & Lies,” as an audio novel. “I wanted to tell a story from top to bottom,” says Downing. “We follow a relationship from the first time these people meet.” The album got a strong response, especially from the ladies. “Women dictate what you’re going to do,” says Downing. “They’re more openminded and creative. They would listen to it from the moment the needle dropped, including all the little vignettes that were spoken. They got into it.” His wife — formerly his background singer — understands that his fan base is

always that way. In the mid-1980’s his first producer had an idea: take John Coltrane’s “A Love Supreme,” arguably the most spiritual composition in jazz history, and turn it into a love song. Instead of being about God, it would be about a woman. “We turned it into a club thing,” says Downing. “At the time house music was the rage, so we decided to do a house-music version. We ended up writing a lyric, we got [saxophonist] Stanley Turrentine to play on it, we spent a lot of money.” “Then come to find out, we had to get Alice Coltrane’s permission. We played it for her and she said, ‘I hate it.’ We were like, ‘You’re kidding!’ We went back and fixed it and played it for her again. I don’t think she liked it any better, but by this time they were probably in her ear — just let them do it, no one’s going to hear it anyway,” he says. “Back then, I didn’t realize the importance of the song. It was one of those things where it’s: OK, this guy’s got the money, he’s got the pull, this is what he wants, let’s just do it.” Today Downing’s greatest challenge comes from polymyositis, a muscle disease he has dealt with for five years. “I have my good days; I have my not-so-good days,” says Downing. “I thank God that it’s not where it was. It’s a rollercoaster. It’s kind of creepy. You feel it coming on. Here it comes, there’s nothing you can do about it. For a period of time you’ve just got to hold on, maintain, and catch a little bit of hell.” The disease has not slowed Downing, who maintains an active performance schedule. His greatest thrill comes when he starts singing and people start singing along. “It’s a great feeling to know you did one thing that everybody gets,” he says. One of the songs audiences go nuts over is Downing’s remake of the 1970’s hit “I Go Crazy,” a tune he almost didn’t record. “I hated ‘I Go Crazy’,” says Downing. “I’m not talking about dislike — I hated it! But I got a call from the label president; he said he wanted me to sing it. I listened to it and said, ‘You’ve got to be kidding!’ I said, ‘Let’s get this thing over with.’” It turned out to be one of his biggest hits.

CLASSIC PUNK | Hugh Cornwell of the Stranglers

Without bands like The Stranglers, filmmakers like Guy Ritchie and Jonathan Glazer wouldn’t have soundtracks. The Stranglers’ 1977 hit “Peaches,” full of innuendo and entendre, was one of the few songs to rival the Sex Pistols’ “God Save The Queen.” The band started out in Surrey in 1974 as a pub-rock outfit. “Punk” hadn’t made it into the lexicon just yet, though The Stranglers’ rough and raw sound helped pave the way for a lot of UK punk bands. The group rarely stuck with any one style. But as it started to sound perhaps too pop, front man Hugh Cornwell bailed in 1990. Cornwell made it to Rochester last year to put on one of the best shows of 2010. Can he do it again? Count on plenty of Stranglers gems at this show, along with cuts off his new “Totem and Taboo.” Hugh Cornwell of the Stranglers performs Friday, October 28, 8 p.m. at Lovin’ Cup, 300 Park Point Place. $10-$20. lovincup.com. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

BLUEGRASS | Clinton’s Ditch

The Ditch started as an acoustic trio in 2009, showcasing the songs of guitarist and lead singer Joe Burge. Sean O’Connor, an accomplished banjo artisan, and Chris Platania on bass, added the missing dimensions and the group began playing live together with a bevy of creatively adapted covers (The Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, Flogging Molly, etc.) and some new music for intrigued fans and friends. Since then they have filled out the sound with a fourth member (Max Snajder) and moved from living rooms to venue stages. This is a truly original blend of that jam-band feel and an Americana aesthetic that the band calls “Western outlaw roots rock.” So come with your six-shooter, a bottle of rye, and your dancing boots.

Art Daughter,” made of $1 bills cut and reassembled into a life-sized nude woman. The currency’s filigree, foliage, and feathers are re-imagined and formed into a statue standing in an ornate reliquary. Wagner exercised a brilliant use of the single material, from slicing the dollars lengthwise to give them curves, to forming a realistically bushy bush, creating a Venus birthed not from the surf but from legal tender; an ornate portrait that plays on the old method of stowing money away in valuables, such as artwork. Other portraits in the show were rendered in

“Firework Drawing No. 9,” by Rosemarie Fiore, is part of the “Extreme Materials 2” exhibit, now at Memorial Art Gallery. PHOTO PROVIDED

Outside the orthodox box “Extreme Materials 2”

Through January 15 Memorial Art Gallery, 500 University Ave. $5-$12 | 276-8900, mag.rochester.edu Wed-Sun 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Thu 11 a.m.-9 p.m. [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

Creative minds see potential everywhere, but in this economy, frugality is key. The Memorial Art Gallery’s second edition of the “Extreme Materials” exhibit reminds me of the challenge issued once a month by the now-kaput DIY magazine, Ready Made: make something artful or useful from this junk. Many visitors to this show will geek out over the shocking use of unexpected art supplies. Others will philosophize about mass production and clever forms of recycling. From blood to bone, bullets to BandAids, and cereal to circuitry, this exhibit features work by artists who creatively re-envision the overlooked into new items and meanings.

Viewers get their first taste of the exhibit when they pass through the glass doors in the MAG atrium. The public was invited to watch the installation of “Ecosystem,” a swirling pattern made from mass-produced plastic soup spoons, by Nick Kozak on October 13-15, generating excitement over the reprisal of the beloved “Extreme Materials” exhibition (the MAG presented the original in 2006). The swarm of familiar objects circle and sprout, seeming to nod to baroque plaster-relief sculptural design, and is an extreme version of a creative reuse of items we encounter daily but inevitably deep-six. In the Grand Gallery space, viewers immediately encounter the garishly colored “Firework Drawing No. 9” by Rosemarie Fiore, which is a mammoth work made from lit firework residue on paper. The varying, shimmering gun-powder marks made by the pyrotechnics were trimmed and pieced together to create a work that is reminiscent of Jackson Pollock’s kinetic style, if Jack The Dripper had worked in a more combustible medium. Mark Wagner created one of the most interesting pieces in the show, “Fortune’s

a variety of materials, including the Shroud of Turin-like rust-on-paper “Opal Brunner” by Esther Solondz, the lit-from-behind packing-tape wonder “Lydmila” by Mark Khaisman, the screws, paint, and phone book pages in “An Artist’s Winter” by Andrew Myers, and the masterfully painted (with the artist’s own menstrual blood) “Corpus Regis” by Jess von der Ahe. Other “shocking” body-related materials include a dress made of condoms and a wedding cake made of tampons, but those left me feeling underwhelmed. More interesting are two other potential gross-outs that were totally engrossing. “Negligee #2 (Serotonin)” by Laura Splan, which is a gossamer dress made of cosmetic facial peel, a gel that retains impressions of pores and hairs, and is embroidered with the molecular structure of serotonin, the neurotransmitter associated with feelings of well-being, sleep, and sex (hence the nightie). This delicate work had me wondering how many ripped samples the artist must have gone through before perfecting one garment. Jennifer Sirey’s “Albino and Dream” is a thin, upright glass slab filled with water, vinegar, monofilaments, and populated by a slumbering, cloud-like skin of bacteria. The watery microcosm is pale and lovely, born of remnant wine and set to sleep in water: “the final piece is alive,” says the artist, “but in a state of hibernation.” Emotionally stirring works include “The Wave”

by Tom Deininger, which in its swirling mass of discarded items more than hints at the abundance of plastic waste in the oceans, and gives onlookers the feeling of being swallowed up. Mary Giehl’s “Crystal Dress” and “Crystal Vest” face one another, garments based with plastic drawer liners, alum, and monofilaments, but ultimately covered in chunky pale crystals the artist coaxed to grow over her armatures. The statement reports that Giehl is “deeply affected by the victims of child abuse placed in her care” as a pediatric intensive-care nurse. Lit from within, the garments relay her hope that “purity of the mistreated has survived at the deepest level.” I considered the strange association from the concept to the artist’s own act of manipulating something that was growing, unconscious of that manipulation. Also moving is Suzanne Broughel’s flesh-tonemandala, “40 Acres of Bandaids (Every Shade of Bandaid for Sale Within 40 Acres of the African

Burial Ground, NYC).” The adhesive bandages are arranged in a geometric pattern, moving in bands of color toward the dark center. “By using these to create a ‘black hole’ at the center of her mosaic of skin colors,” says the infocard, “she references not only the fate of those consigned to the unmarked graves in lower Manhattan, but also the ways in which African-American consumers have often been disregarded by the manufacturing industry.” The other edge of the sword, of course, is caught up in the lack of genuine patches for our ailing race-relations history and present. Jennifer Angus’s “Creature Comforts” is possibly

the star of the exhibition, and is a show unto itself. Angus’s installation is not housed in the Grand Gallery, but given its own room in the smaller Lockhart Gallery, where viewers will find hundreds, perhaps thousands of colorful beetles and bugs, beeswax, and other media. Angus nails it when she speaks of insect life as simultaneously attracting us with its beauty and diversity, and horrifying us because of how outnumbered we are by their legions and alien nature. In the provided statement, the artist says she hopes to call attention to the important role that insects play, which would seem ironic in that her art deals in their demise. But the statement also claims that Angus works with “reputable specimen dealers” and reuses the insects in many installations. The vibrant greens and blues of the bugs are set off glowingly, pinned to bright yellow and orange walls. Beetles form the shapes of a sea monster and two skulls, from the mouths of the latter flow giant, beautiful flies. A low, narrow shelf holds beeswax shaped into skulls, flowers, coral, and various animals, in colors from black to pale yellow. Pinned below the shelves are large insects that could effectively disguise themselves as leaves, about 6” to 8” long, with leathery hides and spiny legs, as well as jewel-like, egg-shaped beetles. Dozens of circular cases, glass bubbles jutting out from the wall, hold what are surely artistassembled hybrids: large beetles with butterfly wings; tiny beetles with heavy, elongated butterfly wings trailing behind them like peacock tails; and giant, legless grasshoppers that resemble fish. Two Victorian dollhouses are populated by countless pinned-up beetles, tintypes of bugs (a nod to Rochester’s photo history), and real bug heads and arms adhered to frilly wax dresses. Both times I viewed this work, I wondered whether this ongoing industry for collections and artwork would ever get the same sort of protests that the impending Otterness installation at the MAG is receiving. To avoid damage and retain maximum malleability, the brutal “killjar” method is employed to suffocate insects. Do these deaths have less of an impact on many of us because the insects are more alien, more pestlike, less amicable than a dog? This installation inevitably brings up questions about the hierarchy of animal importance, why the suffering of some disturbs us more than the suffering of others.

ART EXHIBIT | “Connotations”

Glass work has always fascinated me. Whether the artist is working with a torch, or sculpting in a hot shop, there is something intriguing about watching melted glass manipulated into whatever shape the artist chooses. Artists at More Fire Glass Studio (80 Rockwood Place) have a current exhibit filled with fascinating glass pieces. Entitled “Connotations,” the show features work by studio directors Elizabeth Lyons and Jennifer Schinzing, and resident artist Mahine Rattonsey. Show hours are Monday-Friday 11 a.m.-4 p.m., and the exhibit runs through Friday, November 11. For more information visit morefireglass.com. — BY ERIC LACLAIR Walton, and Bev Owen.

Ed Popil and Jake Purcell in “The Mystery of Irma Vep” at Blackfriars Theatre. PHOTO PROVIDED

A penny dreadful for your thoughts “The Mystery of Irma Vep” Through November 5 Blackfriars Theatre, 795 E. Main St. $17-$27 | 454-1260, bftix.com [ REVIEW ] BY ERIC REZSNYAK

If the vaunted Internets are to be believed, at one point in the early 1990’s Charles Ludlam’s “The Mystery of Irma Vep” was the most-produced play in the United States. I find that astonishing. Not that the play is bad — it frankly defies such simple categorizations as “good” or “bad.” I am just amazed because it is such a niche work with a very specific, acquired-taste humor. But I imagine that the show must be like catnip to ambitious, talented theater folks because it is such a demanding piece that requires its cast and crew to be something like performance decathletes. The on-stage duo and the behind-the-scenes wizards involved in Blackfriars’ current production of “Vep” bust their asses bringing to life one of the weirdest shows I have ever witnessed. And their contributions often elevate the intentionally baffling script. There is honestly no point in recapping the plot of the show. I’m not sure I even could. “Irma Vep” is a ridiculous mélange of Victorian melodrama, camp, suspense, and who knows what else. The story involves saucy servants, mysterious deaths, werewolves, vampires, and even a motorboating mummy, making it, as one audience member pointed out, a perfect choice for Halloween. 26 City october 26 - november 1, 2011

But really, all of the over-the-top trappings are just fodder for the main conceit of the play: two actors portray every character in the show, requiring lightning-quick costume changes and an intense amount of concentration and versatility on the part of the performers. In the Blackfriars production those actors are Ed Popil (as Nicodemus, Lady Enid, Alcazar, and Pev Amri) and Jake Purcell (as Jane, Lord Edgar, and the intruder). The pair of actors creates clearly defined, totally different characters, and attacks each of them with gusto and not even a hint of subtlety. (This play practically exiles subtlety from the first flash of the strobe light.) Popil may be familiar to local audiences from

his recent turn as Max Bialystock in JCC’s “The Producers,” or as his alter ego, drag performer Kasha Davis. His performance in “Irma” is truly a tour de force, as he switches from a snarling, lusty servant to a fretful former stage star to a tiny wisecracking Egyptian guide. Again and again Popil proves himself to be a clever, intuitive performer, making the most of the show’s puns and arch humor. He’s also a gifted physical comedian, milking his pratfalls and grand dramatic gestures. My one note of criticism is that Popil throws himself a bit too much into Nicodemus’s thick “downstairs” accent, as nearly half of the servant’s lines were impossible to understand. Purcell holds his own in the show, especially nailing the stuffy, forlorn Lord Edgar. In the talkback session after the performance I attended, Purcell explained the cinematic

and literary references he used to inform his characters, as well as the way he altered his physicality for each role (grand silent-movie gestures for Edgar, close jittery movements for Jane). That level of thoughtfulness was evident throughout his performance. The talkback session also revealed that the script allows for the cast and crew of each production to add their own spin to the show, through the staging of the open-ended chase sequences, fights, etc. It is a credit to the Blackfriars group that the best parts of this production are elements it added. Modern pop-culture references, audience interaction, and some smart slapstick sequences helped to liven up what was intermittently a languorous first act that didn’t really come to life until the bizarre-but-too-brief trip to Egypt. This show requires a strong and inventive backstage crew to pull off all the tricks. The costumes and sets designed by John Haldoupis are filled with interesting details (and in the case of the costumes, lots of Velcro) that surprise and charm. Director Danny Hoskins mixes in a variety of recognizable sound cues to go along with the creaky floors. And special credit to dressers Donna Accorso and Sue Accorso, who helped to transform the actors in literally seconds. As referenced earlier, the show’s unique brand of humor will not be appreciated by everyone. My advice: don’t bother trying to follow the plot (it’s fairly pointless anyway) and instead focus on the superlative theater craft going on both behind and in front of the set. How they pull it all off so seamlessly is a mystery unto itself.

THEATER | “Million Dollar Quartet”

What do you get when you put Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins all together in the same room? Perhaps some of the best rock-n-roll music ever created. Known as the Million Dollar Quartet, these four were brought together at Sun Records in 1956 for a one-time jam session. Although Lewis is the only one still with us today, you have a chance to see what it was like that night in the studio through a Broadway musical recreation named after the group. Reenacting the promises, secrets, and of course music from that great recording session, “Million Dollar Quartet” hits the stage at the Rochester Auditorium Theatre (885 E.

S. Anderson insouciant interpretation of European history Now playing beyond the fanciful inventions of Dumas. Before the major action begins, the film opens When Alexandre Dumas wrote “The Three in Venice where the soldiers of the title, Athos Musketeers,” and later, “Twenty Years After” (Matthew Macfadyen), Porthos (Ray Stevenson), and “The Vicomte de Bragelonne” (a trilogy and Aramis (Luke Evans) collaborate with the I cherished in my lost youth), he bequeathed treacherous Milady de Winter (Milla Jovovich) to Hollywood the material for one of the great to steal the plans for one of Leonardo Da Vinci’s examples of franchise cinema.

Taken together, the movies It then resumes with the familiar story of D’Artagnan (Logan Lerman), the young bumpkin from the provinces, traveling to Paris to win honor with the Musketeers, and immediately challenging all three to consecutive duels. He ends up allied with them against the Cardinal’s Guards, who serve Logan Lerman, Luke Evans, and Matthew Macfadyen in “The Three Musketeers.” [ REVIEW ] by George Grella

the head of the French church, Cardinal Richelieu; whatever the facts, the antagonism between the Cardinal’s Guards and the King’s Musketeers represents some aspects of the power struggle between church and state that defined European political history for decades. The cunning, devious Cardinal Richelieu (Christoph Waltz) orchestrates an elaborate plot that involves the amazingly acrobatic Milady stealing the queen’s diamond necklace and bringing it to the Duke of Buckingham in order to convince King Louis (Freddie Fox) of her infidelity. That whole preposterous undertaking grows even more fantastic with the Duke’s arrival in the Da Vinci invention, a gigantic blimp carrying an actual sailing ship across the English Channel to the royal palace. The Musketeers eventually engage that vessel in a battle in the skies with their own ship, an extended set piece full of stunts and fireworks, ending with a crash and a puncture on the spires of Notre Dame, a sequence that departs entirely from the novel but defines the spectacular nature of this particular interpretation. This “Three Musketeers” in fact combines the basic elements of the novel and its many adaptations with the familiar spectacle of the Hollywood blockbuster. The filmmakers’ notion of a 17th century version of contemporary technology negates any gesture in the direction of plausibility. Among other anachronisms, the picture features such unlikely devices as a long row of automatically fired cannons that guard Da Vinci’s airship plan,

Shock value [ REVIEW ] BY DAYNA PAPALEO

“Paranormal Activity 3” (R), directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman Now playing

a circle of revolving cannons that Athos fires like a machine gun, a flamethrower, and of course the airships themselves, graceful galleons that sail the skies as if they were traversing the oceans. Most of the actors provide satisfying interpretations of their familiar characters. Although he cannot match the romantic, debauched disillusionment of Oliver Reed, the best Athos of them all, Matthew Macfadyen conveys some of the complexity of the most interesting character in the whole trilogy. Christoph Waltz once again displays his line in sinister elegance, suggesting his villainy with a glance, a smug curl of the lip, a raised eyebrow, and clearly enjoying himself throughout. The greatest disappointment in this otherwise original and entertaining adaptation sadly derives from its major character, D’Artagnan himself. An undersized, callow youth, with a weak voice and a single facial expression — a self-regarding smirk — Logan Lerman, whoever he is, hardly seems the man to defeat Captain Rochefort of the Cardinal’s Guards in a swordfight on the roof of Notre Dame. He and King Louis XII, a petulant fop, become friends, an appropriate pairing of adolescents masquerading as grownups. This “Three Musketeers,” however, the most spectacular version ever filmed, and in 3D as well, retains the sense of adventure and the sense of fun of most adaptations. It neglects the darkness of some previous cinematic translations, sacrificing fidelity to the text for some terrific effects, a common practice in our time.

I’m sure that we all pause on occasion to daydream about achieving stratospheric success, but it’s unlikely that “Paranormal Activity” creator Oren Peli had any clue that he was about to unleash a moneymaking juggernaut as he filmed a little $15,000 horror movie over seven days in his own home. Released in the fall of 2009, “Paranormal Activity” would go on to make nearly $200 million worldwide and, more importantly, rescue the Halloween box office from the torture-porn dungeon. (Thanks for nothing, “Saw.”) Employing the first-person POV shooting style used previously in watershed flicks like “The Blair Witch Project” was Peli’s masterstroke; with the cinematic field of vision confined, our twisted psyches are free to imagine terrors far scarier than anything a special-effects department could conjure up. And even when all is calm, we’re still wound so tightly that the slightest fright could send that $65 bucket of popcorn skyward.

Chloe Csengery and Jessica Tyler Brown in “Paranormal Activity 3.” PHOTO COURTESY

But two chapters — and countless parodies — later, can the faux-foundfootage construction still work its magic? The short answer is yes, but mind those seams. Like the first prequel, “Paranormal Activity 2,” “Paranormal Activity 3” furthers the “PA” storyline by delving into events of the past. This time we’re waybacked to 1988 thanks to a trove of VHS tapes Katie stashed in her sister Kristi’s basement just before Katie’s well-documented possession. (Katie Featherston and Sprague Grayden have quick but satisfying cameos.) Little girls Katie (Chloe Csengery) and Kristi (Jessica Tyler Brown) are living in Carlsbad, CA, with their mom, Julie (Lauren Bittner), and her boyfriend Dennis (Christopher Nicholas Smith). Conveniently, Dennis happens to be a wedding videographer, so when things at home start getting spooky, he sets up a few camcorders in hopes of sussing out the cause. Co-directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman (they made last year’s controversial, riveting documentary “Catfish,” a discussion for another time) don’t deviate from Peli’s triedand-true blueprint; the shocks are patiently administered, and no matter how prepared you are to be frightened, you’re usually not ready at all. Dennis’s brainstorm (by way of returning screenwriter Christopher Landon) is to affix a video camera to an oscillating fan, which enables him to monitor both the kitchen and the living room while simultaneously ratcheting up our dread as we notice subtle (also: not-so-subtle) changes in the scenery. And we finally get a clearer picture of just what we’re dealing with here. Julie and Dennis initially tolerate what they believe to be Kristi’s imaginary friend — she calls him Toby, speaking to him with a mix of affection and unease

— but as Toby gets more aggressive, well, “PA3” gets more interesting. The kids do some rather unaffected acting, especially the young Brown and her eerily natural performance, but it’s impossible to watch kids being terrified in the name of make-believe and not wonder if they’ve crossed the line from pretend-scared to real-scared. Again, “PA3” is less action than reaction, as the now-traditional suburban family in peril gradually gets wise to the supernatural entity in the crawl space. (And Teddy Ruxpin is still creepy.) So it’s pretty much the same film as its predecessors, which isn’t technically a crime since the jolts remain quite potent. But now that we know what to expect, it leaves our common sense free to roam and poke holes in the mythology, wondering why some of these prequel events haven’t been mentioned before. How come adult Katie and Kristi were so surprised by their own unearthly visitations; did they completely block out what happened? One more question: where does the “Paranormal Activity” franchise go from here? The $54 million opening weekend for “PA3” certainly calls for a fourth installment in the series, as does its manic, disturbing finale, though Peli and Co. may have backed themselves into a corner chronologically speaking. Most people didn’t have the means to obsessively document their lives before the 80’s, which rules out additional found-footage prequels. But there’s definitely some chilling stuff left to explore; Dennis finds a freaky old photo which may point in a narrative direction, and let’s not forget about the famously dangling Katie thread. As far as we know, she’s still out there with Hunter, and probably even her old pal Toby. Whatever; somehow, this diehard horror hater is perched on the edge of her seat.

EDWARD SCISSORHANDS Wednesday, Oct. 26, 8 p.m.

In his final role, Vincent Price is the loving inventor who breathes life into his creation Edward (Johhny Depp), but passes on before he can complete his transformation. Alone in his gothic castle until a well-intentioned Avon saleswoman (Dianne Wiest) tries to incorporate him into her suburban life, Edward quickly becomes the toast of the town. But when he falls in love with her beautiful daughter (Winona Ryder), Edward learns how fickle people can be. Preceded by Tim Burton’s short Vincent, his tribute to the legend himself.

Roman Polanski surprised many by adapting Ira Levin’s novel about witchcraft in contemporary Manhattan. Its themes, however, are pure Polanski: urban alienation, creeping paranoia and incipient madness, this time involving a young New York City housewife (Mia Farrow) who, shortly after moving into a strange apartment building filled with oddball tenants, discovers she’s pregnant. Who’s the baby daddy? The devil, probably. (Roman Polanski, US 1968, 136 min.)

A Historic House Restored in Palmyra 221 West Jackson Street Palmyra, “Queen of Erie Canal Towns”, looks

that includes a pocket door separating the

very much as it did in the Victorian era. The downtown business district is lined with 19th century buildings and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

living room from a small office space and back stairs. A remodeled powder room is tucked beneath the stairs. The modern eatin kitchen is nearby, easily accessible from the back stairs. A small pantry leads to the dining room where guests can eat under the reproduction chandelier and imagine that it is lit with flickering candles.

In 1871 Alvin Newton, a hardware merchant, built a large brick house in the then-current Italianate architectural fashion, on West Jackson Street in the village. Eight years later he traded his Palmyra house for a farm in Wolcott. In 2000, a young couple became the new owners of that house, 221 West Jackson St. What they thought they saw eleven years ago was a well built, historic brick house that needed a few interior upgrades. Ultimately these upgrades included all new electrical and plumbing systems as well as restoration throughout. “It was,” the current owner remarked, “as if the house showed us what to do.” Today the architectural features typical of the Italianate style–the rounded arched windows, the brackets under the roof overhang, the porch columns and the distinctive cupola—remain. Step through the double front door into the hallway to find a home restored for comfortable modern living. Note the original narrow floorboards patterned in the corner joinings. The front staircase rises gracefully with turned balusters and a solid newel post. Imagine greeting guests here and leading them through the French doors into a cozy living room. Here a failing beam was replaced with a new bearing wall

Upstairs, space was reconfigured to provide four bedrooms complete with large closets as well as two luxury bathrooms and a laundry room. A ladder leads to the cupola where the space is limited but the view is expansive. The large lot, 1.4 acres, is well landscaped. A two-story former carriage barn offers extra finished space for many possible uses. Palmyra is located just six miles from the Thruway and about thirty minutes from Rochester. The original (1825) Erie Canal ran through Palmyra; today the New York State Barge Canal runs along the edge of the village and provides a focus for community activities. For detailed information about the community and events visit www.palmyrany. com. The list price for this historic house is $189,000. To experience this piece of history contact Steve Vaisey at 585-223-7000 or SteveVaisey@remax.net. by Lea Kemp Lea is Librarian/Archivist at Rochester Museum & Science Center.

[ news of the weird ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD

London Fashion Week usually brings forth a shock or two from cutting-edge designers, but a September creation by Rachel Freire might have raised the bar: a floor-length dress made from 3,000 cow nipples (designed to resemble roses). Initial disgust for the garment centered on implied animal abuse, but Freire deflected that issue by pointing out that the nipples had been discarded by a tannery and that her use amounted to “recycling.” The 32-year-old Freire, who has worked with mainstream entertainers such as Christina Aguilera, was kept so busy with the animal-abuse angle that she was largely spared having to explain another issue -- why anyone would want to wear a dress made with cow nipples.

The Entrepreneurial Spirit! — Death is big business in Japan, with 1.2 million people a year passing away and overtaxing the country’s cemeteries and crematoriums. With the average wait for disposal at least several days, and space running short in funeral homes, “corpse hotels” have opened in many cities, with climate-controlled “guest rooms” renting for the equivalent of about $155 a night, with viewing rooms where relatives can visit the bodies daily until cremation is available. — The world’s real economy may be flagging, but not necessarily the makebelieve economy of online multiplayer games, according to reporting by The Wall Street Journal (July) and the website Singularity Hub (August). For example, entrepreneur Ailin Graef’s Anshe Chung Studios is worth “millions” of real U.S. dollars, earned mostly by managing rentals of make-believe real estate and brokering make-believe money

transactions in the game Second Life. Graef also commands top (real) dollar for her designs of make-believe fashions for players’ game characters (avatars). Two other companies are suing each other in federal court in San Francisco over the copyright to their lucrative business models of creating make-believe animals (horses, rabbits) that sell very well to players who take them on as game pets for their characters or breed them to make other make-believe animals. — No sooner had Anthony Sowell been convicted in August of murdering 11 women in Cleveland and burying their remains around his property than entrepreneur Eric Gein of Florida had hired someone to fill sandwich bags of soil from Sowell’s property so that he could sell the souvenir dirt for $25 a gram on the Internet. (Gein follows well-publicized salesmen who have famously collected the pubic hair of New York prostitute-killer Arthur Shawcross, the crawlspace dirt from the house of John Wayne Gacy, and the “fried hair” of Ted Bundy -- that fell on the floor as he was executed.)

DMV Is a Dangerous Place

(1) The Department of Motor Vehicles office in Roseville, Calif., was closed for a week in July after a driving school student crashed into the building and left a five-foot hole in the wall. (2) A young man taking a test at the drivers’ center in Brisbane, Australia, in August lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a bench outside the building, hitting his mother, who was waiting for him. (3) A 56-year-old DMV driving tester was killed in July when the woman she was evaluating ran off the road in Williamsburg, Va., and struck a tree.

[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 33 ]

[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Either you or the person to whom you are attracted will not be able to make a commitment. Ulterior motives may be the problem. Question why and who you really want to spend time with before moving forward. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Romantic opportunity is right in front of you. It may be someone from your past who still has strong feelings for you. Emotions are skyrocketing, and sharing your feelings will bring you closer to someone special. Honesty may initially cause a rift, but in the end, it will be appreciated.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t get too friendly with someone at work. It’s OK to share thoughts, ideas, etc., but when it comes to intimacy, it is best not to get involved with anyone who has the potential to affect your professional position. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Get out and mingle, network or participate in an event or activity you enjoy, and you will meet potential partners. Expect someone to meddle in your affairs or to give you false information. Don’t let gossip deter your plans to explore a new relationship. LEO (July 23-Aug 22): You may want to settle down, but don’t do

so just for the sake of not being alone. You need more time to figure out what you really want and with whom you want to share your goals. Now is not the time to be a chameleon. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Look at past relationships to figure out what type of person you want to be with. Conversations with people who have the same goals as you are the ones to gravitate toward. Love is in the stars, but you have to make it happen. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Money and possessions can make or break a relationship. You have to decide what you want -- love,

security, friendship or all three. Not everyone you meet can give you everything you desire, but at least give love a chance. Don’t deny someone the chance to make you happy. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): A little charm, along with honesty, integrity and straightforwardness, will capture the heart of someone very special. Don’t procrastinate if you see an opportunity to make a worthwhile commitment. Make a move that will not leave any uncertainty regarding what you want and expect. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You are likely to be enticed by

someone who isn’t the best for you. Make sure you find out the status of anyone with whom you decide to become intimate. Chances are, you are being fed information that is not accurate and can lead to hurtful situations. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The individual who can intelligently discuss everything that is important to you will win your heart. Love is highlighted, and making a bold move to capture and entice this person will bring excellent results that lead to a bright future. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Love can cost you emotionally,

mentally, physically and financially if you aren’t careful. Not everyone you meet will be honest. Sorrow is present, and caution must be taken regarding the signals someone is sending you. Avoid anyone who is currently involved with someone else. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You can reunite with someone from your past or make a commitment to someone who wants the same things you do. Discuss your goals and start making plans that allow you to explore the possibilities of moving forward romantically and with regard to joint ventures.
