Reigning in rural sprawl Lima is at a crossroads. The village got its start as a stop on a welltraveled cross-state road, a section of which is the modern Routes 5 and 20. A village landmark from the era, the American Hotel, still sits at the corner of that corridor and what’s now Route 15A. The hotel and the brick storefronts that surround it represent the Lima that residents and officials say they want to protect.
But just north of the village on Route 15A is a Dollar General. The store’s block walls, nondescript roof trim, and parking lot frontage stand in stark contrast to the architecture and feel of downtown. It doesn’t fit with the town’s 10,000-plus acres of active farmland, either. Over the past five years, the town and village have changed the way they approach planning to protect the village downtown and the town’s large amounts of high-quality farmland.

In an October 22 column in the New York Times, Thomas Friedman reports that in addition to extensive ongoing teacher training in Shanghai primary schools, there is also “parent training.” One teacher contacts “the parents of each student two or three times a week to keep them abreast of their child’s progress.” Friedman goes on to note that the teacher says, “I tell them [the parents] not to beat them [their children] if they are not doing well.” Rochester parents shouldn’t beat their children either, but this bespeaks the intense involvement of the parents with their children’s weekly progress in school. The biggest contributor to the failure of the Rochester primary educational system is likely the lack of constructive involvement of all parents with their children’s education. As corroboration, an earlier article in City noted that some young children failed to appear in a free summer school program even though door-to-door transportation and meals were provided. The failure of young children to participate in such a program can only be the failure of their parents. TERRENCE L. FINE
Mary Anna Towler decries the possibility of Republicans getting rid of Obamacare (“Games Republicans Play,” Urban Journal). She doesn’t have a thing to worry about, but what if it was true?

law, is part of the Constitution, and was codified at least twice by the Supreme Court. Ms. Towler writes that the 2012 election was a referendum on the new law. Then the 2010 election was a referendum against it, especially since the election came shortly after it became law. By the way, Obama repeatedly changed the law after it became law, which is unconstitutional. Only Congress can do that. SAM PALERMO
The Democrats created Obamacare all by themselves because (at the time) they had complete control of the government (“Romneycare’s Launch Wasn’t Successful, Either,” News Blog). They didn’t want or need any input from Republicans on how to cover the small percentage of Americans who didn’t have health insurance. The Democrats opted for the Big Government Solution and would have preferred the Single Payer Plan if they could have gotten all of their members to agree. Instead of allowing free-market insurance competition across the country, they created governmentcontrolled “exchanges,” raised taxes, expanded Medicare, and forced mandates on everyone, creating the mess we are witnessing today. The creation of Obamacare was unilateral. Opposition to it was bipartisan. Now the Democrats want the Republicans to help “fix” and “implement” their disaster called Obamacare. However, the Democrats own Obamacare in its entirety. The Republicans won control of the House in response to the Democrats’ creation of Obamacare. They weren’t elected to help perpetuate a bad solution. The good news is that eventually the country comes to its senses. Prohibition was once “the law of the land” as Obama proclaims Obamacare to be. But prohibition was repealed when people saw it was bad legislation. BART

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
Greece and the Supremes When I was in seventh grade, math class in our public school opened the same way every Monday: with the teacher asking us to raise our hand if we had gone to Sunday school and church the day before. Good little girl that I was, I went to Sunday school and church every week. So I always raised my hand. The grilling made me nervous, though. And the teacher’s stern, authoritative personality didn’t help. What if a Monday came and I hadn’t gone to church? What did the teacher think about students who didn’t raise their hand? Technically, the teacher wasn’t coercing us. I don’t remember him ever saying anything about the students who didn’t raise their hand. He just went on with the class. But boy, the whole thing felt like coercion. The issue of prayer in a public setting, and the question of whether it involves coercion, is being argued this week before the Supreme Court. In the spotlight: our very own Town of Greece, whose Town Board has had a practice of opening its public meetings with prayer. And not just any kind of prayer. Before 1999, the board’s meetings had opened with a moment of silence. But in 1999, the board began inviting members of the clergy from the town to give a prayer. All of the clergy were Christian, and some of the prayers had specific Christian references. In 2007, after some citizens complained, the board started inviting representatives of other religions. But that lasted for only four months. Then it was back to solely Christian clergy. So two Greece residents took the board to court. They didn’t ask that the board stop opening its meetings with prayer; they just wanted the prayers to be nondenominational. A federal Court of Appeals sided with them, and now the case is before the Supreme Court. Prayer before legislative sessions has already been found constitutional; in a 1983 ruling, the Court said that the practice is “deeply embedded” in the nation’s history. And the Court said that in the case before it, a chaplain’s prayers before Nebraska legislative sessions didn’t proselytize or advance a particular religious view. Although the Greece Town Board insists that its prayers don’t advance a particular religion, I’m not sure how it argues that with a straight face. Besides, prayer – whether of a specific religion or not – is a religious act. Why should we want any governmental body to begin its public sessions with a religious act? If individual legislators want to have a prayer breakfast, a Bible study group… if

they want to get together in private before a meeting and pray for religious guidance, that’s their business. But by starting legislative sessions with prayer, they are injecting religion into public business. (And by the way, as any good Biblereading Christian knows, according to the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus himself told us not to pray in public. Here are the words attributed to Jesus: “And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men.... when thou prayest, enter into thy closet and when thou has shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret....”) In a 1984 case, Justice Sandra Day O’Connor warned that when a governmental body endorses a religion, it sends a message that non-believers are “outsiders, not full members of the political community.” This is not a question of over-sensitivity to expressions of religious faith. It’s a question of the rights of others, particularly those with minority views. The Greece case is significant: if the Court rules in favor of the Town Board, it could open the door to broad expansion of religious intrusion into the public sphere, including religious displays on government property and aid to parochial schools. The Court could rule narrowly, of course. But given its conservative majority, I wouldn’t bet on it.

D and C’s new digs
The Democrat and Chronicle plans to locate its new offices in leased space at the Midtown site downtown. The new building will be at the corner of South Clinton Avenue and Main Street, in front of the Windstream building. The D and C space will also be home to parent company Gannett’s U.S. Community Publishing East Group.
Union rejects Wegmans deal
Members of Teamsters Local 118 have once again rejected a contract offer from Wegmans. Neither the company nor the union has publicly indicated a next step. By rejecting the contract, the Teamsters authorized a strike, but there’s been no indication that a strike is imminent. The Teamsters represent approximately 900 Wegmans truck drivers and warehouse employees.
New RPO board members
The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra appointed six members to its board of directors: Lauren Dixon, Steven Feldon, Sandra Parker, and Stephen Rosenfeld. James Boucher is returning to the board, and former
RPO board chair Suzanne Welch was named an honorary board member. Everyone but Welch faces election in January.
State Supreme Court Justice Scott Odorisi ruled that the city’s use of red-light cameras is constitutional and that there are ample due process protections in place. Local attorney Lawrence Krieger filed the suit after being fined for failing to properly stop at a red light in 2012. In a statement following the ruling, Mayor Tom Richards said that the red-light program will continue in full effect.
Morgan plans takes another step forward
Morgan Management received permission from the city’s Planning Commission to build a 99-unit apartment complex at 933 University Avenue. The site is in the East Avenue Preservation District and opponents, led by the George Eastman House, say that the project is too big for the site and doesn’t belong in a preservation district. Commission members disagreed. The proposal now goes to the Preservation Board for final approval.
Would using a private contractor for snowplowing save Penfield money? FILE PHOTO
SUBURBS | BY JEREMY MOULE
Penfield may privatize plowing The Town of Penfield may start using a private contractor to plow some of the town’s subdivisions in the winter. The rest of the plowing would still be done by Penfield’s public works employees. Officials want to know if the move would save money, says Town Supervisor Tony LaFountain, through reductions in overtime and equipment wear and tear. Officials are reviewing bids to see how they compare to the cost of using town employees to plow the roads. LaFountain says that it’s a matter of meeting residents’ demands for stable taxes. But the town will also consider
bidders’ experience and equipment to make sure potential contractors are qualified and capable, he says. “We can’t just look at the bottom line,” LaFountain says. “We’ve got to look at the full package.” The Town Board would review the results at the end of the winter, he says. The City of Rochester contracts out snowplowing for residential streets. But LaFountain says he’s not aware of any Monroe County towns that do so. Flo Tripi, western region president of CSEA, the union that
represents Penfield’s public works employees, says that contracting out snowplowing is a bad idea. She says she doubts that a private contractor would be cheaper. And the town has capable employees with years of experience clearing Penfield’s roads, she says. Contractors won’t have that knowledge, she says. And she questions whether they’d have the same commitment to the job. That will be especially important, she says, if the area has a rough winter. “He’s [LaFountain] willing to sacrifice that,” Tripi says.

Highland Market’s new life
Money in the bank
Owner Danny Stefanou says that he intends to reinvent the Highland Market in the South Wedge as the go-to place for quick and easy access to fresh, healthy foods. Stefanou has owned the market at the corner of Linden and South avenues for more than 30 years, leasing it out for the last 21 years. But the building and the property are not in the best shape, neighbors say. “There are people who have not been happy with the maintenance of the property,” says Chris Jones, president of the Business Association of the South Wedge Area. “It does need paint. It needs paving.” Stefanou plans to turn the market, previously a typical convenience store, into a full-line grocery store that he’ll run himself. “Where you can go in and buy everything to make a meal,” says Peter Siegrist, preservation planner for the City of Rochester. “So we want vegetables. We want meats. We want fruits.” The original plan was to rezone the property from residential to commercial, but public outcry caused the Planning Commission to reject the proposal. Some neighbors were concerned about the site’s future under commercial zoning if Stefanou ever decides to sell, says Mike Mahoney, chair of the Highland Park Neighborhood Association.
The state Attorney General’s Office has awarded Rochester’s land bank $2.78 million, which the city will use to acquire and rehabilitate houses over the next two years. | The AG’s Office made $20 million from the state’s share of a national mortgage settlement available to New York land banks. And in September, the Rochester Land Bank Corporation submitted an application seeking $3.3 million to purchase, rehab, and re-sell 50 homes through the Greater Rochester Housing Partnership’s HOME Rochester program. The program rehabs houses and sells them at market value to first-time homebuyers. The land bank also planned to use some of the money to cover staff costs, including a full-time real estate specialist. | A fact sheet for the Rochester land bank says that the $2.78 million award will fund the full-time staff and its 50-house plan. The city’s application also sought funding for some new construction, but the fact sheet doesn’t mention that. | The fact sheet does say that the investment will be matched by $3.7 million in private financing and $2.3 million in city and state subsidies. All new construction will meet national green building standards for energy efficiency.

“Does he in 10 years sell it to CVS?” Mahoney says. “And there’s nothing we can do at that point.” The new proposal keeps the residential zoning, allowing the market as a nonconforming use. Siegrist says that the site’s former use as a gas station and myriad other factors make it undesirable for housing. “Here’s an opportunity to get a brand new building, get rid of the stuff that’s there now, and provide a service to the neighborhood,” he says. “From our standpoint here, I don’t know that you’re going to do any better.” Stefanou needs approvals from the city’s Zoning Board and the Planning Commission. An open house on his new proposal is from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday, November 18, at the market, 830 South Avenue. The Zoning Board’s meeting on the plan is at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, November 21, in room 223B at City Hall, 30 Church Street.
ENVIRONMENT | BY JEREMY MOULE
Plastics pollution Researchers have released a new paper on microplastics in the Great Lakes. In it they say that in many cases, the concentration of plastic fragments exceeds the concentration found in the world’s oceans. | The paper was written by researchers from the 5 Gyres Institute and SUNY Fredonia and covers samples from Lakes Superior, Huron, and Erie. Erie had the highest concentrations of plastics. Researchers also found aluminum silicate — coal ash, which is a coal power plant byproduct — particles in the Erie samples. | Researchers have said that they are concerned about the impact that plastics pollution, particularly microplastics, could have on the health of fish and other marine wildlife. They’ve identified microplastics — tiny beads often found in personal care products like exfoliating face washes — as a particular problem, since water treatment plants do not appear to filter them out of waste water. They’ve convinced several large consumer goods companies to phase out the use of microbeads in their products.

“I’m good in math,” Bermudez says. “It just comes easy to me.” His prowess on the basketball court could earn him a college scholarship. He says he’s already been approached by a scout. Their classmate, Joshua Richmond, also 15, says he’s considering a career in law enforcement, although he really likes to play baseball. All three teens are like many boys their age — tall, gangly, and crossing that footbridge between childhood and young adulthood. Their career ambitions are practical, if somewhat vague. Cooper, Bermudez, and Richmond all have a passion for sports, but their knowledge about the jobs available in professional sports is limited. Bradley Reiss, a young account executive with the Rochester Rhinos, says he wants to change that. A high-energy sports fan himself, Reiss nearly buzzes at the prospect of working with the boys. All three teens are sophomores at Rochester Career Mentoring Charter School and Reiss has offered to be their mentor. “I’m not looking to turn them into superstar sales executives,” he says. “But through this experience, they’re going to get a taste of what it’s like to work in professional sports.” The high school, located at 30 Hart Street, began with a freshman class of about 80 students last year, and plans to grow, says Dennis Francione, the school’s founder.
Charter schools tend to be thematic in nature. And Francione, a former teacher and principal with the Rochester school district, says that his school’s mission is to provide city students with a strong academic program that leads to a Regents diploma. Nurturing students’ career interests along the way is a motivational strategy, he says, to help keep the students in school. And it’s practical, he says. Many city students need help figuring out what they’re good at and what they like to do, Francione says. And they know even less, he says, about attainable careers that combine the two. 6 CITY

“We don’t just tell them about the career opportunities out there,” Francione says. “We show them and we help them focus. It doesn’t matter whether it’s cosmetology and fashion or something in the health care field.” RCM connects its students to professionals in those fields through a mix of internships and mentoring relationships. The students get to explore their career ambitions early in high school, and they learn about the education and training they’ll need to land a job they want. Some students are preparing for college, Francione says. Others are preparing for technical training or an apprenticeship. The Rhinos’ Reiss says that his relationship with the teens is in the early stages, but that he foresees Cooper, Bermudez, and Richmond experiencing everything from game-day operations to customer service. “They’re going to be so close to the action,” Reiss says. “We’re going to put them in situations where they’re going to interact and touch every person who comes in.” The students will learn time management, communication skills, and how to take direction and feedback, he says. “This is a good way to take every slip up and fall and turn it into a learning moment,” Reiss says. “I’m hoping they’ll get the goose bumps like I do, but maybe they’ll discover that they don’t want to work in an environment like this. That’s important, too.” RCM is one of the first charter high schools
in the area to follow a career-building model. “We have a 95 percent attendance rate,” Francione says. “Our students want to be here and they know we want them to be here.” The teacher-led school has had no students drop out and no staff turnover, he says. Cooper, Bermudez, and Richmond say they’re thankful they’re going to RCM. “Gangs are inside and outside some [city school district] schools,” Cooper says. “Sometimes you have a bunch of dudes

who think that a street is their street. If I’m going home and I see six or eight dudes who are coming toward me, I might take a different way because they might jump me or something.” Bermudez says there aren’t as many boys right now at RCM and the boys who are there are friends. “We all know each other and we get along,” he says. Parent engagement is also strong, Francione says, and school functions are well attended. Though there are no school counselors at RCM, each teacher is an advisor to roughly 13 students on everything from getting extra help on a particular subject to dealing with personal problems. “You’ve got to deal with the whole child,” Francione says. “Some of our students have behavior problems, but we work with them. You can’t leave their socialemotional issues outside the school.” But academically, RCM’s test scores haven’t been stellar. And Francione acknowledges that he’s facing a challenge. Some research suggests that how well new charter schools will perform becomes clear within their first 24 months of operation. To improve student performance, Francione has invested in technology for the classrooms, and has created tutorintensive remedial programs for students
who are behind in some subjects. As many as five tutors work with a single classroom teacher to help bring students who are having academic problems up to speed. Francione favors this approach over summer school, which he says isn’t as effective. The school’s future may rest on how well Francione and his staff are able to match business and trade professionals with RCM’s students. While mentoring can take many forms, Francione says that giving students the opportunity to try different types of work is critical. It’s also one of his concerns about the current push toward college readiness. Many students don’t know why they’re going to college, he says, and some feel uncomfortable saying they want to be mechanics, for example. “What are we doing?” Francione says. “That’s nonsense. We need our mechanics and plumbers and electricians.”
RU R A L S P R A W L DEVELOPMENT | BY JEREMY MOULE
Lima is at a crossroads, literally and figuratively. The village of approximately 2,100 people got its start as a stop on a well-traveled crossstate road, a section of which is the modern Routes 5 and 20. A village landmark from the era, the American Hotel, still sits at the corner of that corridor and what’s now Route 15A. Built in 1840, the well-kept, creamy yellow building still provides lodging and meals — drawing patrons from well beyond Lima’s boundaries. The hotel and the brick storefronts that surround it represent the Lima that residents and officials say they want to protect. But just north of the village on Route 15A sits a Dollar General. The store’s block walls, nondescript roof trim, and parking lot frontage stand in stark contrast to the architecture and feel of downtown. It doesn’t fit with the town’s 10,000 plus acres of active farmland, either. Sprawl is largely seen as an urbansuburban phenomenon. But rural communities like Lima are fighting their own battles against the sort of development, enabled by automobiles, which can sap the life out of downtowns and eat up farmland and open space.

“We see that in other communities where you end up having all of these new buildings, some of them with the designs that fit a national chain, and you have very solid older buildings within your community that are just sitting empty,” says George Gotcsik, chair of Lima’s combined town-village Planning Board. Residents and officials in the town and village of Lima recognize the potential threat and are taking action. Over the past five years, the town and village have changed the way that they approach planning and have made fundamental efforts to protect the village downtown and the large amounts of high-quality farmland in the town. And they have received important recognition for those efforts. This summer, the National Endowment for the Arts’ Citizens Institute on Rural Design announced a $42,000 grant for a community design workshop in the Village of Lima. The workshop, facilitated by the Rochester Regional Community Design Center, was held during the last weekend of October. The grant, which was awarded to only four communities this year, has a bigpicture purpose: to help rural communities
learn from each other’s successes. But the workshop had practical benefits for Lima in that it included a two-day charrette, which is basically an in-depth public input, brainstorming, and planning session, for the community. The RRCDC will use the information from the charrette to help the town-village community develop a long-range vision plan, which will articulate the community’s identity and pinpoint consistent projects and development approaches. The idea is to have an intentional approach to development without unintentional consequences.
Some of the issues facing Lima are unique,
while others are examples of national trends. The town and village populations have been relatively steady at approximately 4,300 people. But over time, more of the community’s residents have begun commuting to jobs in Rochester or Rochester’s suburbs, says Gotcsik, the Planning Board chair. And since most of the commuters spend their disposable income on the way to and from work, Gotcsik says, that means less money for Lima. As a result, the village has lost its hardware store, bank, pharmacy, and dry cleaner, he says.
Retail growth in Honeoye Falls — Honeoye Falls is a short drive from the Village of Lima’s downtown — also competes with Lima’s businesses. Among the businesses that have opened in Honeoye Falls over the past few years: a Rite Aid Pharmacy and a Tractor Supply Co. (National chains and big-box retailers pose a particular threat to the viability of independent, locally-owned hardware stores and pharmacies.) Gotcsik says that Honeoye Falls’ demographics may make it more attractive to developers right now. But commercial and residential developers could start looking for land and opportunities in Lima, he says. The Town of Lima is primarily an agricultural community, which is why farmland preservation is important. Heading east out of the village center, just past a feed business and a stone company, the view gives way to uninterrupted fields, some still full of the year’s corn crop. Houses, barns, and silos pop up occasionally, but that’s the extent of development. But farming, as an industry and a way of life, is subject to the influence of many complex factors. Some of those issues are broad, such as commodity prices or

the reluctance of the next generation to take over the family farm. But some are local. And Lima’s farmland protection plan identifies steps that the town can take to preserve the land and to encourage agriculture. Recommendations include purchasing farmland development rights and limiting the extension of water lines into the town. And the town has a minimum residential lot size of 2.5 acres, Gotcsik says, which discourages subdivision development. Lima residents and officials say that they’re not interested in stopping growth, only
in making sure that it happens in healthy, appropriate, and smart ways. Most of the current efforts grew out of the 2008 town-village Comprehensive Plan. The document prioritizes farmland protection and downtown development, and also says that community businesses are more desirable than suburban-style big-box stores. But one sentence from the introduction forcefully summarizes the plan’s goals: “Lima should not become another suburban bedroom community,” it says. The plan calls for balanced development and does leave room for commercial and industrial growth in the town and village. But the town won’t zone additional land for commercial or light industrial development until land currently zoned for these uses is built up, Gotcsik says. The town has also taken a critical eye to the Route 15A corridor approaching the village. Earlier this year, the town and the Rochester Regional Community Design Center convened a charrette on the corridor.
The resulting vision plan lays out ways to make the corridor safer and more attractive. On the simple end, it recommends new welcome signs. But the vision plan also recommends the use of cluster development along the corridor — an approach that would require less land. And the resulting development would be more walkable. The plan also recommends developing a parallel multi-use path from the village line to an intersection about a mile-and-a-half north. The town has developed building design standards for Route 15A, too. So if the Dollar General were being built today, Gotcski says, its design would be a better fit with the architecture of the rest of the town than the current store is. Similarly, the village has developed design standards for new construction in its downtown, Gotcsik says. And the village pursued and received a $315,000 grant from the state’s community renewal agency to rehab downtown buildings. Other rural communities are experimenting with
ways to breathe life back into their downtowns, too. So while Lima may be a test case, it could also learn from efforts in those communities. The Village of Perry is one example. Perry Mayor Rick Hauser spoke during Lima’s recent community design workshop. In 2007, Hauser’s Perry-based architecture firm, Insite Architecture, tried a novel approach to buying and rehabbing a commercial building in the village downtown. It formed what Hauser calls a Main Street LLC — a concept that combines building ownership with the old adage “Many hands make light work.”
Hauser says that about 20 members of the Perry community bought a share of the for-profit company. In some cases, people with specialized skills, such as lawyers and plumbers, contributed work in exchange for a stake in the project. The initial investments helped raise the resources necessary for the project. The rehabbed building attracted businesses, and once it started generating income, the investors began receiving their shares. Federal tax credits may also be available for people who invest in older or historic buildings. The approach is a way for people with long-term interests in the downtown — residents and business owners and employees — to ensure downtown’s vitality, Hauser says. It’s also a way for communities to fix up or redevelop older buildings in need of significant investment. Opera houses, theaters, and department stores are all good candidates, Hauser says. Perry has since used the approach on another building. And community members in the nearby Village of Attica have replicated the strategy. “It’s kind of a bottom-up model,” Hauser says. Lima’s in a better position than some other villages, since its downtown core still has
good bones, distinctive architecture, and people dedicated to preserving both. Nationally, cities of varying sizes are seeing people move back downtown, says Roger Brown, an architectural and urban design consultant and president of the Rochester Regional Community Design Center’s board. They’re looking for vibrant,
walkable places to live, Brown says, and villages may benefit from the same shift. “They have to build on a sort of momentum that is going on out there where people are starting to live in these small communities,” Brown says. Gotcsik says that the Village of Lima has begun to see some residential growth, including the construction of new houses. He says that young families, in particular, are moving in. They are attracted to village living and to the quality of the Honeoye Falls-Lima Central School district, he says. But Brown says that the communities need to develop strong identities. Local leaders need to market their towns and villages, he says, and to come up with ways to attract visitors to their downtowns. He says that those efforts have been important to the success of areas such as Skaneateles and Cazenovia. “Granted, these are gorgeous places,” Brown says. “But they market their places.” Gotcsik says that’s exactly what the Lima community wants to do, and that the successes of places such as Skaneateles and Cazenovia are encouraging. And Lima has its own natural beauty, he says. Continued community discussion and planning are critical, Gotcsik says, and the follow-through must be there. Lima is fortunate, he says, because the town and village work well together. “If you have a plan then you can make very good, strategic decisions in a very, very complex environment,” he says. “Without a plan, you just approach your decisions as they arise.

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and its clear-cut identity, one that typically involves perfectly cooked eggs, fluffy pancakes, and crisp bacon, might be the reason it’s the only meal with actual, devoted fans. Take Ed Schram, for instance. “I love breakfast,” says Schram, who recently demonstrated his affection for traditional morning food by opening Harvest Café with his son Andrew, who owns the nearby Nathaniel’s Pub. Now Corn Hill-billies like myself have a neighborhood spot at which to fuel up for the busy day ahead, or just grab a latte to go and watch the wandering river. It was while helping out Andrew at Nathaniel’s that the coffee-loving Schram noticed a dearth of good joe in the area, and when New Taj Indian Cuisine closed in Corn Hill Landing, the Schrams decided to fill that niche. “Fresh, fresh, fresh” is how Chef Drew Greenfield describes the offerings at Harvest Café, which opens its doors at 6 a.m. to serve what Schram calls “a little bit of an upscale breakfast.” That means such options as customizable egg dishes (organic, cage-free eggs are available), whole-grain waffles, brioche
French toast, housemade sausage, and various Benedict preparations. Oh, and cookie-dough pancakes, lest things get too highbrow. Named in honor of Schram’s farmer parents, Harvest Café also serves lunch, with the midday meal receiving the same attention to detail as the morning one. Roasted chicken and vegetable consommé is the signature soup, while the sandwiches include a ratatouille meat-loaf burger ($11); an Ultimate Grilled Cheese featuring sharp cheddar, Muenster, crumbled blue, and fresh mozzarella; and The Colonial ($8), with smoked turkey breast, cucumbers, Swiss, greens, and fresh raspberry chutney on multigrain bread. There are salads, too, made with locally sourced ingredients whenever possible; I’m actually writing this between bites of my takeout Orchard Salad ($8), which mingles peppery arugula, tart green apple, bright mandarin orange, crunchy candied walnuts, and earthy goat cheese, all kissed with apple-cider vinaigrette. Schram is particularly proud of Harvest Café’s coffee, offered in the usual fusions but comprised of specific blends and grinds of Moak beans that Schram helped to create. Future plans for Harvest Café include extended
hours and a liquor license, with an eye toward serving light dinners, desserts, and cocktails. Meanwhile, Schram and his staff are tweaking the restaurant mechanism and testing recipes. Says Chef Greenfield, “It’s a fun process.” Harvest Café is located at 298 Exchange Blvd. in Corn Hill Landing. It is open daily 6 a.m.-3 p.m. Prices range from $3 to $13. For more information, call 730-4604 or visit harvest-cafe.com.
Beers aged in bourbon barrels take center stage at The Old Toad as part of Bourbon and Blues, going down on Friday, November 8, beginning at 6 p.m. In addition to live music by Eric and the Bluesbirds, the evening will also feature bourbon-centric food specials, bourbon flights, and a bourbon cocktail menu. Get further details by calling 232-2626 or visiting theoldtoad.com. Restaurants like Cravings on Main, Good Smoke BBQ, Next Door, and Mise En Place are scheduled to compete in the 10th Annual Firehouse Chili Cookoff on Saturday, November 9, 4:30-7:30 p.m. For $30 you’ll get unlimited chili samples (meat, vegetarian, and vegan creations), a beer, a handmade ceramic bowl, and the satisfaction of helping
Sai Gon Restaurant, now open at 2171 W. Henrietta Road in the space that once housed Portofino (and most recently Thai Time), is a solid addition to our city’s growing number of Vietnamese eateries. The menu features warming bowls of pho and other soups, vermicelli and rice dishes, stirfried noodles, light salads, appetizers, and bubble tea. A beer and wine license is in the works; call 730-8178 for more information. Newly open at 716 E. Ridge Road in the former Six Pockets (and before that Beefsteak Mining Company, and before that Steak Stockade) is Blue Water Seafood and Steakhouse, serving — you guessed it — steak, seafood, chicken, chops, and all the trimmings. Call 286-9115 for details. Devotees of Seabreeze’s much-missed Churi’s Ice Cream Parlor and Authentic Thai Cuisine will be happy to hear about the opening of Churi’s Coconut Tree, now offering timeless Thai dishes at 1930 E. Ridge Road. Call 339-9299 to learn more. Bar Louie recently opened in the Mall at Greece Ridge; the national chain describes itself as an “eclectic urban bar,” which basically means it offers interesting cocktails and classy bar food like beer-braised mussels and truffle-butter popcorn. Don’t believe me? Visit barlouieamerica.com. Or just visit the mall.

Phil and Don in space [ REVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
It’s funny; a lot of psychedelic era or music influenced by the psychedelic era doesn’t sound that psychedelic to me. I think in many cases these were in essence garage bands on psychedelic drugs. Minds are still getting explored and bent, but the sounds frequently aren’t all that mind-bending. Exception: Rochester’s psychedelic sonic sensation The LSD Enigma, a duo the works in intensity, swirling color, and depth, and is just a couple of clicks away from being weird. The band played Friday for the art-crawling set for First Friday festivities at the Record Archive. The band adheres to the genre’s folk-story roots but splashes in tons of slap-back and reverb over an infectious go-go beat. It was the delay and dimension created by the reverb that gave the show a truly psychedelic twist and shout over the otherwise organic strain of the choppy acoustic guitar, snappy, treble-tight drums, and harmonies reminiscent of Phil and Don in outer space.
I’ve preached and pontificated and pleaded the case for classic bar bands. I’m talking about artists that play hard, performing music for scooting around the joint with your hands around something cold and your arms around something warm. Bands like The Nightstalkers. Honestly, there are few better. I’ve been going to see this band since when the late Marshall James roamed the earth and fronted the band with his soulful pipes and dry wit. I made my way to Sticky Lips Juke Joint Saturday night as the band was laying down its badass blend of bluesy boogie, rock ’n’ roll, and jazz. There is something so cool about a blue-collar, working-man’s band that relies on zero frills while delivering the thrills for the working-off-their-dinner crowd. It was a moment in time of varying significances — first date, last date, beers with buddies — depending on who you ask. When you have a bar band as tight and rockin’ as the Nightstalkers, regardless the outcome, it sounds alright.

Music So did The Runaways.
Yes, yes we did. We were teenagers. That had never happened. That had not been done. Talk about a crash course; we were out there on the road without any parental supervision and we counted on each other for support. A lot of us had never been away from home. What’s a highlight from that time for you?
I think it was always walking on and walking off stage. As the audience grew for The Runaways we really realized we were doing something extraordinary. What is a lesson learned that you still apply today?
I certainly don’t do drugs and drink anymore. I’m far more cautious than I was back then. And that just comes with life. I’m just not a reckless human being. No? You carve life-size mermaids out of wood with a chainsaw. Cherie Currie was lead singer of the groundbreaking all-female rock band The Runaways. She has returned to the music industry, and also creates art via chainsaws. PHOTO PROVIDED
Cherry bombs and chainsaws Cherie Currie W/METHANOL UNPLUGGED, AMANDA ASHLEY SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 10 LOVIN’ CUP, 300 PARK POINT 6:30 P.M. | $25-$30 | LOVINCUP.COM CHERIECURRIE.COM [ INTERVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
In 1975 an all-teenage-girl band was basically unheard of. Sure, there were female artists kicking around. But for the most part they were plugged into bands with dudes. Enter The Runaways: brash, ballsy, raw, rocking, and all female. The band was formed by drummer Sandy West and guitarist Joan Jett after producer and rock ’n’ roll impresario Kim Fowley put them in touch. The band began hitting the Los Angeles club circuit as a power trio with bassist Micki Steele (later of The Bangles). Steele soon split to be replaced by Jackie Fox. With the addition of guitarist Lita Ford and singer Cherie Currie, the band exploded on the scene with its eponymous debut for Mercury Records in 1976. Despite three more releases, and shows in which they shared the stage with acts like The Ramones, Cheap Trick, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and Van Halen, creative differences plagued the band, and The Runaways hung it up for good in 1979. 14 CITY NOVEMBER 6-12, 2013
Look around today and you’ll still see remnants of The Runaways. Sadly, West died in 2006, but Lita Ford and Joan Jett are both guitar-slinging household names, Fox is a writer and entertainment lawyer, and Currie…Currie wields a chainsaw. Yup, she’s still in rock ’n’ roll, but divides her time between performing and creating some gorgeous wood sculptures rendered with a chainsaw. If you want a piece, you’ll have to get on a year-plus-long waiting list, as Currie is back in the studio with Fowley (an album is slated for release early next year) and on the road again. She called up to say hi, compared the dangers of rock ’n’ roll with using a chainsaw, and to tease us with the possibility of a Runaways reunion. An edited transcript of the conversation follows. CITY: What’s new and exciting in your world? Cherie Currie: Yesterday was an amazing day
in my life. Lita and I did our first professional photo session for the Christmas duet we did, which she wrote. It is coming out next month. It was an absolute joy to spend time with her. How long had it been?
Well, Lita and I have been seeing a lot of each other lately. She asked me to do this fantastic Christmas single with her called “Rock This Christmas Down.” People are gonna love it. Things have just been positive and wonderful. Lita and I have been talking a lot about touring and coming up with a show that the Runaways
fans will love, how to incorporate our wonderful drummer Sandy West — God rest her soul — into the show. And we’re reaching out to Joan to see if she would like to jump on board and have some fun. Why the resurgence? What got you back in the game?
I’ve always continued writing music. After the movie came out [2010’s “The Runaways,” based on Currie’s memoirs], my manager, Kenny Laguna, who was also Joan’s manager, asked me to open for her at the Pacific Amphitheater in 2010. It was really a great show. I was offered a record deal that night, and I realized, hey, why not? How is the music industry different today?
Well, my gosh, it’s so easy today, with the internet. You still have to rely on television and radio and journalists. But nowadays you don’t even need a record company — you need a distributor — but you can make your own records and you don’t need to be under that thumb of the record company. And women in rock ’n’ roll are no longer a novelty.
Of course. That has changed dramatically. When The Runaways were happening we had Heart and Fanny and Suzi Quatro, who really blazed a trail.
That I do. I was so afraid of that chainsaw that I had to overcome that fear and listen to my intuition, which so many people don’t do out of fear. I’ve never been hurt by the chainsaw, thank god, and I’ve been doing this now for 12 years. How did you ever get into chainsaw sculpture?
I just happened to pass some guys on the side of the road on my way to the beach one day. They had a little gallery there and they were carving. I couldn’t get it out of my head. At that time I was a two-dimensional carver, carving wall hangings and tabletops. But this voice in my head said I had to go back, you can do this. So I went back and asked if they would let me be their apprentice. And they taught me how to not kill myself with a chainsaw. Your work is absolutely beautiful.
Thank you so much. My third piece was accepted into the Malibu Art Expo, which is really difficult to get into. But it can’t replace rock ’n’ roll?
Chainsaw art doesn’t scratch a musical itch for me, no. I keep writing and participating in music because it’s something that I’m meant to do. What’s next for you?
Lita and I are going to do more stuff together. Every day seems to be a surprise. Be still my beating heart…a Runaways reunion?
Well, we’ve put it out to Joan. Lita and I are going to do something together and we’d really love to have Joan with us because we’re just having such a great time doing it.

Fri. 1-7pm, Sat. 10am-5pm, Sun. 10am-4pm On the grounds of Granger Homestead in Canandaigua ACOUSTIC/FOLK | VANCE GILBERT
Vance Gilbert’s finger style guitar playing is as storied as his lyrics; telling tales of where his sound began. It’s certainly not cluttered, but it’s a far cry from the old folksy down and up. And the man’s voice — a gut wrenched, emotionally drenched tenor — serves as a salve to his acerbic rapid-fire wit. Just dig his song “My Bad.” This Philly-based artist is hysterical, endearing, enchanting, and mesmerizing. You can listen for hours.

Early in 2013, Canadian quintet Young Galaxy released its fourth album, “Ultramarine,” one which ultimately landed itself high on the short list of Polaris Prize nominees announced midyear. Featured on the album is song of the year candidate “Pretty Boy,” an astounding opening track and perfect introduction to the band’s superlative electro-pop. Front woman Catherine McCandless is a worthy arbiter of the band’s clear talent, and confident enough in her vocals to let the music step forward and carry much of the weight at times. With tropical rhythms and bold grooves, expect great things here in town, as well as in the future. Young Galaxy performs with Mister Lies and Hawker M.

AMERICANA | JOSHUA POWELL & THE GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY
Indiana-based Joshua Powell & the Great Train Robbery embraces an Americana-based sound: a genre that is well-known for lyrics infused with both strong storytelling and togetherness. Combined with that knack is a true affinity for Southern rock and roll, oftentimes employed to electrify a typically placid sound. On the recently released “Man Is Born for Trouble,” the band continues its exploration of genres, while still retaining the Americana sound that it embodies so well.

Classical of vocal music). Their music, consigned to oblivion for several hundred years, is slowly inching its way back into the repertoire — not as special pleading, says Deborah Fox, but simply because their music is good. “Why do it? Because it’s there,” she says. “I always ask myself, ‘Can you tell if it’s by a woman?’ And of course, you can’t. Each of these women had her own style, and their music is certainly worthy of being known.”

Early musick for an eager publick [ FEATURE ] BY DAVID RAYMOND
When Deborah Fox first decided to study lute in Rochester in the 1980’s, she had a tough time of it and ended up studying privately. Fast forward a couple of decades or so, and Deborah Fox is pleasantly surprised to find herself not only a busy professional lutenist, but also the director of a very successful producing organization, Pegasus Early Music. “Early music” used to be thought of as music written before J.S. Bach or Handel, and the province of specialists. Even a nowubiquitous composer like Antonio Vivaldi was nearly unknown until after World War II. In the last couple of decades, interest in preBaroque music has exploded, as has research into performance practices of music from 18 CITY NOVEMBER 6-12, 2013
many different areas. Composers like Johann Pachelbel, Dieterich Buxtehude, and Tomaso Albinoni are no longer dusty, forgotten names, as intelligent performances of their music have revealed its beauty and liveliness. Rochester’s music scene reflects this change in thinking, and it is evident this weekend, when you can see and hear a lot of early music excellently performed. Sunday brings the second concert of the season by Pegasus Early Music, a revelatory look at the many excellent women composers active in 17th and 18th century France and Italy. They were not anonymous, but women with active public lives as composers, performers (Barbara Strozzi and Francesca Caccini were noted singers, and Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre was a keyboard prodigy encouraged by Louis XIV), and in at least one case, a nun (Isabella Leonarda, a prolific composer
“I don’t think of ‘early music’ as a time period,” says Fox, “but more of an approach to music, seeing it in its context and in its times. The question that moves me is, ‘How can I find out what these composers were thinking?’” Modern musicians often need to re-think their approach to the details of performing to make early music “sound” correct, she adds; “I think of it as investigative reporting.” There are many ways to do that. Before recording was even thought of, pre-20thcentury musicians were extremely verbal about their art and craft. “There are many writings and publications available to study,” says Fox. “Singing treatises, guides to every instrument, guides to ornamentation and instrumental techniques. Travelers’ accounts of concerts in different countries can be very helpful in showing different national approaches to style.” For example, ornamentation — the addition of trills, grace notes, rapid passages, and other effects to enhance the musical expression — was approached very differently in France, Italy, and Germany. In fact The A=440 pitch we take for granted now (that’s the note an oboist plays to start the tuning up at a symphony concert), was lower centuries ago, and could vary from country to country, and even from theater to theater. Even ledgers and payment records from churches and concert venues can be useful in showing how many musicians took part in a performance. Fox adds that in their spontaneity, the best performances of early music have a lot of the same appeal as the best jazz: “You have to have a flexibility and openness about performing, and an interest in exploration. A lot of the details that make the music live are not on the page — that is where their research comes in.” Pegasus Early Music is now in its ninth
season, and it would be accurate to say it was a success from the start. “We started our performances at the Academy of Medicine,” Fox says. “We expected about 30 people for our first concert, and we got 80. The audience response was beyond my expectation from the beginning.” She quickly learned that “Rochester audiences are unusual — they’re educated and they’re interested, and willing to try music they’ve not heard before.”
As it has grown, Pegasus has broadened its range of repertoire, reflecting the gradually growing interest in applying musicological research to later music. The historically informed approach has gradually moved up to include music by Romantic composers — later this season, Pegasus welcomes the Australian chamber group Ironwood for a programs of music by Brahms. The line-up also includes an authentic early-music star, lutenist Paul O’Dette, who just happens to live in Rochester and is a longtime faculty member of the Eastman School of Music and director of its Collegium Musicum. A winner of a Grammy Award and numerous other recording prizes, O’Dette is also a busy conductor and director of the Boston Early Music Festival. Pegasus is the tip of a large iceberg: early-music performers (or more accurately, performers whose versatility includes expertise in performing early music) are everywhere in Rochester now. This Friday’s Rochester Early Music Festival won’t include Deborah Fox, but it will present lots of other musicians interested in historically informed performance. This musical smorgasbord is being presented for the 13th year by Musica Spei, the group dedicated to performances of Renaissance and Baroque choral music, at St. Mary’s Church. Musica Spei will perform serene vocal works by Lassus and Josquin, as well as one of Renaissance music’s greatest hits, a raucous vocal evocation of a military victory by Clément Jannequin. The festival lineup includes lutenist Christopher Wilke, as well as music for an ensemble of viols (forerunners of the cello that come in several different sizes and are often performed in a group), instrumental music by J.S. Bach, and performances by the brass ensembles Baroquen Bones and by Publick Musick (another durable Rochester early-music ensemble, now directed by Rochester Philharmonic cellist Christopher Haritatos), among others. Eastman School voice students and Collegium Musicum will present excerpts from Handel’s opera “Serse” (“Xerxes”), which the school will stage in February, under the musical direction of Paul O’Dette. Musica Spei presents the 13th Annual Rochester Early Music Festival, “Gods and Heroes,” Friday, November 8, at 7:30 p.m., St. Anne Church, 1600 Mt. Hope Ave. Tickets cost $13$15 ($5 for students).

FILM | “DIRTY WARS”
America’s activity in the world is complex and shadowy, with compartmentalized access to information and bought-andpaid-for media outlets. Too few genuine journalists exist, who take it upon themselves to pursue answers, and to drag the truth, kicking and screaming, into the light of day. These heroic people find little support and are in danger even after they leave the battlegrounds behind. And many Americans are content with blissful ignorance about what is done in their name, with the greenback fruits of their labor.
If you’re the type who needs to know more, visit the Cinema Theater (957 S. Clinton Ave.) on Tuesday, November 12, at 7 p.m., for the Rochester premiere of the film “Dirty Wars.” The award-winning film is a guerrilla-style, in-the-trenches investigation of U.S. covert operations that co-writer Jeremy Scahill discovered while he was reporting from Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Nigeria, Yemen, and the former Yugoslavia. Scahill became aware of clandestine operations taking place, including drone strikes, night raids, and U.S. governmentcondoned torture, which generated civilian casualties. In this film, Schahill and director Richard Rowley trace the rise of the Joint Special Operations Command, the most secret fighting force in U.S. history, exposing operations carried out by men who do not exist on paper. Following the screening, Rowley will join the discussion on the theater’s big screen via skype. General admission tickets to this event are $10 and may be purchased at RCTV (21 Gorham St.), via phone at 325-1238, or depending on availability, after 6 p.m. at the Cinema Theater Box Office on the night of the screening. This film is being hosted by RCTV in association with Metro Justice, Rochester Indymedia, and Rochester Against War.

THEATER | “CALAMARI SISTERS”
The Calamari Sisters are back with another show, and like their other ones this should be put on your don’t-miss list. Equal parts drag-show and cooking-show parody, the Calamari Sisters musicals have been getting rave reviews wherever they go. Since the sisters got married in their last show, and the new show is called “Bun in the Oven: Contractions with the Calamari Sisters,” you can get a fair idea of the plot of the latest installment. If you want a better understanding of what the show may entail, just go to the show’s website (thecalamarisisters.com) and read the ridiculous bios of the sisters, Carmela and Delphine. The show continues through Sunday, November 10, at RAPA’s East End Theatre (727 E. Main St.), and tickets range from $25 to $45.

The salad days are over “Julius Caesar” BY THE SHAKESPEARE PLAYERS THROUGH NOVEMBER 9 MUCCC, 142 ATLANTIC AVE. $14-$19 ($9 FOR AGES 25 AND UNDER) MUCCC.ORG ROCHESTERCOMMUNITYPLAYERS.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY ERIC REZSNYAK
The current production of “Julius Caesar” at MuCCC marks two milestones for Rochester Community Players and its Shakespeare Players shingle. It is the start of the 20th season for the Shakespeare Players. (It’s worth noting that the company’s Shakespeare offerings have only increased in recent years, including the return of its Shakespeare for Young Audiences program later this season.) And it kicks off the 90th season for RCP itself, which is no small feat. Chances are just about everybody knows the basic gist of “Julius Caesar.” You likely read the Shakespeare play in high school or college, or you got the broad strokes somewhere along the line in life. Beloved Roman war hero and statesman Caesar maybe started to believe 24 CITY NOVEMBER 6-12, 2013
his own press a little too much. His ambition perhaps got the best of him. A cabal of fellow senators conspired to take him out before he ascended to what they feared would be an unassailable position of power (and, coincidentally, diminish their own influence). Halfway through March in 44 B.C. Caesar was assassinated, ending his reign and sparking bitter civil wars in Rome. The story is nothing new, but the Shakespeare Players’ staging of it offers something different than what viewers may be accustomed to. Director Peter Scribner has incorporated a number of what are termed “original practices” by Shakespeare scholars in order to recreate as closely as possible the initial 16th century productions of the play. When you think “Julius Caesar” you likely think togas and Doric columns. In this play, the actors are largely in Elizabethan garb, with Roman flourishes. There are no scene changes, the action never stops, and all of the sound effects are produced acoustically by the cast and crew. The audience is seated in a 3/4 round, so that its members can watch one another as they watch the play. (This led to one hilarious moment where an actor referred
dismissively to a group of “wenches” while gesturing to three women in a MuCCC pew; the looks on their faces were priceless.) The house lights remain up for the entirety of the show, so that the actors can see the audience — as they would have via candlelight in Elizabethan parlors and salons. Most important, the actors are encouraged to interact with the audience. The leads in particular make actual eye contact with members of the audience while delivering impassioned speeches. That last element helps to transform a historical play into something that feels fresh and relevant to today’s political situation. Perhaps it was the “original practices,” or perhaps it’s because I haven’t read the play in more than a decade. Regardless, I came away from this production with a very different take on “Julius Caesar.” Specifically I came away with different opinions of Cassius and Brutus, the two lead conspirators in the plot to murder Caesar. Whereas the obvious interpretation of Cassius would be that he is conniving and self-serving — and that’s definitely there — there is also a nobility to the character, especially in his final moments. Brutus is regarded as one of history’s great patsies, but this production
Shakespeare Players are communitytheater troupes. As such, there is a wide range of acting ability in their productions. While several of the minor cast members in the show struggled — including Caesar himself, Ed Scutt, who wrestled mightily with his lines especially in the beginning of the show I attended — there is some absolutely wonderful work being produced by several of the lead actors. Bill Alden is the center of the show as Brutus, and he brings gravity and heart to a deeply conflicted man. Alden turns in an assured performance, and one that is buoyed by the direction to speak directly the audience. His soliloquy in the orchard is genuinely inspiring, and his reactions to the quickly deteriorating situation later in the play feel natural and oddly logical. This is a case of perfect casting: an actor fitting just right into a complicated role. Alden plays many of his scenes off of Roger Gans as Cassius, who similarly does an excellent job justifying the unjustifiable. It’s impossible to make Cassius someone to actually root for — he’s a schemer and blatantly corrupt — but Gans at least makes him three dimenstional. His argumentative scene with Alden in Act II features terrific acting from both men. Zak West has a fascinating arc as Mark Antony. For the majority of Act I he just kind of floats around the stage hugging people with a blissed-out look on his face. I assumed the take was something akin to Antony permanently tripping on Ecstasy. But after Caesar’s death, West’s Antony comes to life and delivers some electrifying speeches as well as a few sharply barbed zingers. Strong work from this young actor. The sparse but effective set, eyecatching costumes, and general theatrical efficiency throughout the production are in line with the original Shakespearean practices. But that doesn’t make Scribner’s directorial restraint any less laudable. The current production of “Julius Caesar” is interesting and evocative, and shows that there is a lot of vitality left in a 2000-yearold story, a 400-year-old play, and a 90-year-old community-theater company.

RECREATION | ROWING CLASSES
Don’t let the increasingly frigid temperatures take away the equally fun and physically grueling workout of rowing. Starting Thursday, November 7, Genesee Rowing Club begins the first of three indoor rowing programs that will take place over the coming winter. Sure, you could use one of those rowing simulator machines at your gym, but why do that when you can row row row in an actual boat on water? Yes, it is indoors, so the boat won’t move, but you can’t get much closer to the real thing until the weather warms up again. And we live in Rochester, so who knows when that will happen. The first session begins Thursday and runs until Thursday, December 19. Classes are held at the Pittsford Rowing Center (2800 Clover St.) Monday through Thursday, and also Saturday of every week. Package options include once, twice, or three times per week. Experienced rowers are welcome to drop in. Check out geneseerowingclub.com for class times and pricing information. — BY TREVOR LEWIS

[ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA
Geneseo Square Mall, 243-2691, rochestertheatermanagement.com
The ambiguity of its title reflects some of the same quality in the content of “Ender’s Game.” Ender Wiggin, the protagonist and intermittent narrator, plays numerous advanced versions of video games throughout the movie, some of them forming an integral part of the action; at the same time, as the script puns on his name, he accomplishes a sort of end game that creates the climax and even promises a sequel.

Based on a novel by Orson Scott Card, the film posits a future in which 50 years before, a horde of extraterrestrial aliens attacked Earth, killing millions of people, only to be defeated in a great air battle by a legendary commander named Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley). Since then the world government has recruited specially gifted children to defend against any future attack, on the grounds that only young people can absorb all the complex information and skills to command the technology of maneuvering spacecraft against an alien force. The most brilliant and talented of those children, Ender (Asa Butterfield) also suffers a number of internal conflicts connected to his equally gifted siblings. His brother Peter (Jimmy Pinchak) and his sister Valentine (Abigail Breslin) both washed out of the space program, Peter for his psychotic tendency to violence, Valentine for her soft-heartedness. Ender combines both qualities, which wage a kind of war against each other in his psyche and often break out in moments of crisis.
Asa Butterfield and Harrison Ford in “Ender’s Game.” PHOTO COURTESY
Despite its action in the future, its location in various space stations, and its concentration on the most advanced technology imaginable, most of the movie resembles one of those basic-training flicks familiar to any fan of the war film, a futuristic version of “The Sands of Iwo Jima,” “Battle Cry,” “Full Metal Jacket” “Heartbreak Ridge,” or a score of others. It comes complete with a large, loud sergeant (Nonso Azonie), a relentlessly demanding commanding officer, Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford), and a platoon of obnoxious recruits. Colonel Graff believes intensely in a kind of Darwinian selection, so he encourages all the trainees — called launchies — at the space stations to compete vigorously against each other in every area, from classroom performance to hand-to-hand combat. Since he is the best and the brightest, most of his peers hate Ender, which pleases the colonel mightily, because it will temper and harden the weapon that his favorite recruit will become. Ender’s worst battle pits him against one of the most obnoxious little punks in cinema, a rival named, of all things, Bonzo (Moises Arias). Despite his gifts and accomplishments, throughout that hardening process Ender suffers a good deal of self-doubt and both emotional and physical pain. His fellow students ostracize, insult, and abuse him — the picture positively overflows with bullies of all kinds — which leads him to some violent retaliation that he

later regrets, but which the colonel finds most gratifying. Ender must overcome a host of problems to become commander and eventually admiral of the space fleet, pretty good, if a touch incredible, for a wispy little kid of 14. Poor Asa Butterfield must carry most of the picture on his narrow shoulders, a heavy task for a short, skinny, rather unimpressive young boy, whose constant frown and occasional teariness grow just a bit tiresome. In a disappointing comedown from his terrific performance in “42,” Harrison Ford mostly sticks to one gruff note as Colonel Graff; his second in command, played by Viola Davis, offers something of a sympathetic foil to the recalcitrant, permanently angry colonel. The picture itself follows a most predictable trajectory of action, but employs its visual effects brilliantly. Although unlike “Gravity,” filmed in the traditional two-dimensions, “Ender’s Game” displays a remarkable array of special effects, particularly in its many sequences of weightless travel and mock combat. The actors float and soar in a kind of lyrical space ballet, free of all limits, free of the normal constrictions of physics, in a really quite beautiful series of images. Although the concept of a futuristic war against aliens from another planet directed and fought by a bunch of pubescent kids hardly seems likely, we should recall the ages of those thousands of soldiers and sailors lost in two world wars, Korea, Vietnam, and the Middle East. Wars are fought by children.
The Rochester Polish Film Festival, sponsored by the University of Rochester’s Skalny Center For Polish and Central European Studies, celebrates its 16th incarnation this year. The festival will be screening eight feature-length films, along with two shorts, at the Little Theatre (though Opening Night selection “Roman Polanski: A Film Memoir” will screen at the Dryden Theatre), each shining a spotlight on Polish culture in its myriad forms. Guests at this year’s festival include director Ryszard Bugajski, actress Maria Mamona (“The Closed Circuit”), director Kordian Piwowarski, and poetry translator Anna Piwowarska (“Baczyński”). What follows is a selection of films from this year’s line-up. All the films are in Polish with English subtitles unless otherwise noted. Visit the festival’s website (rochester.edu/College/PSC/CPCES/ events/fall13/pff13/pff013/films.html) for a complete schedule and list of events. Based on real events which occurred in Poland in 2003, “The Closed Circuit”

(Thursday, November 7, 7 p.m.) has the feel of a taut, 70’s-era political conspiracy thriller as it follows an underhanded scheme by a corrupt group of government officials to wrest control of a recently established electronics company from its founders, by any means necessary. A manipulative district prosecutor Andrzej Kostrzewa (Janusz Gajos, in a chilling performance) leads the campaign, teaming up with high-ranking public officials, and convincing an ambitious junior prosecutor to file trumped-up charges of fraud and money laundering against the young entrepreneurs for what, the film gradually hints, are dubious personal reasons. In Andrzej Jakimowski’s genial film “Imagine” (Friday, November 8, 7 p.m.) a young professor (charismatic English actor Edward Hogg) is hired to teach the children at a Portuguese institute for the blind. Blind himself, he subscribes to the philosophy that the visually impaired can be fully independent, advocating his pupils to use their remaining senses to become aware of their surroundings and ultimately walk without the assistance of a cane. His devil-may-care attitude rankles the school’s administration, but his students find themselves inspired to venture out and take exhilarating new risks. Mostly in English, Jakimowski’s script combines aspects of a “Dead Poets Society”-esque inspirational teacher drama with a sensitive love story, as the professor catches the eye of a shy, pretty German patient at the school. The film manages to blend these familiar elements into something unique, that also feels authentic and treats its subject with an admirable respect. Also noteworthy is the impressive sound design that allows the audience to enter the mindset of a visually impaired person and see the world as they might experience it. Acclaimed Polish jazz musician Michał Urbaniak acquits himself quite well in his
first screen-acting role as Włodzimierz Starnawski, an elderly former professional clarinetist whose life is thrown into upheaval after his wife, Barbara, leaves him for another man, in the bittersweet family drama, “My Father’s Bike” (Saturday, November 9, 6:30 p.m.). After Włodzimierz ends up briefly hospitalized, his son Paweł (Artur Żmijewski), a successful classical pianist, and teenaged grandson, Maciek, travel to see him. Though Paweł wants nothing more than to dump his father off in a nursing home, Maciek, who lives with his mother and barely sees Paweł at all, convinces him otherwise. Instead, the trio end up setting out North, hoping to locate Barbara and convince her to come back home. Staying at a rental home while they search, the three generations of men immediately butt heads, unsure how to deal with one another now that they’re suddenly under the same roof. Years of simmering hostilities and resentments are exposed, and the stage is set for some good old-fashioned familial healing. This might have all come across as a bit sappy, but happily, director Piotr Trzaskalski (along with co-writer Wojciech Lepianka) keeps a tight rein on the tone, adding a droll sense of humor and never allowing the film to descend into mawkishness. Natalia (Magdalena Berus), the protagonist of writer-director Katarzyna Roslaniec’s gritty “Baby Blues” (Sunday, November 10, 3 p.m.), is a self-involved 17-year-old struggling to raise an infant son, Antek, while remaining committed to her shockingly irresponsible lifestyle. After her own mother packs her bags and leaves town, Natalia is forced to try to make things work with the baby’s slacker father, Kuba, despite the fact that neither one is cut out to be a parent. That the film works at all is largely thanks to authentic (if not exactly sympathetic) performances from its brave cast of first-time actors.

Stunning Center Hall Colonial ideally located in the Maplewood area by Genesee River Trail. This turn-key home features hardwood floors, leaded glass, french doors and a wood burning fireplace. Other highlights include new kitchen with cherry cabinets and a new 2nd floor bath. New tear off roof, furnace, and paint. 3 bdrm, 2 bath, 2012 sq.ft. List Price: $134,900.
Good bones: it means the fundamental qualities of a house are in place, leaving only the cosmetics to be updated to suit the preferences of a new owner. The size and configuration of the rooms, the quality of construction, the original details that give a house its character - when a house is lucky enough to retain these essential features, that’s when it has “good bones.”
small laundry chute harnesses gravity to simplify that household chore.
The house at 341 Rugby Avenue is a great example. Its welcoming Craftsman-style porch, complete with its original, lovingly stained beadboard ceiling and a patterned balustrade, is a clue to the care that went into its construction. The vestibule features an original tiled floor and compact coat closet. The first story feels surprisingly spacious, in part because of the expansive eat-in kitchen, featuring plentiful storage and counter space - uncommon luxuries in an early twentieth-century house. Also rare in a house of this vintage is a good-sized powder room, located off the dining room. Throughout the first story are classic, simple Craftsman-style moldings; the hardwood floor in the dining room is a clue to what likely lies beneath the current carpet on the living room floor, ready for restoration. The living room features a bay window and an arch over the side staircase.
The back yard is sunny and cheerful, with a patio and space for a vegetable plot, swing set, fire pit, or whatever form of outdoor living your heart desires. With a full two-car garage, another rarity in a house of this vintage, you can give up the chore of sweeping off your car in the morning this winter.
On the second story, you’ll find three generously sized bedrooms, all with hardwood floors. A built-in linen closet in the hall offers convenient storage, while a
The walk-up attic offers a surprise: vintage wallpaper, indicating this room was used as living space, probably early in the twentieth century. It remains partially finished and could easily be converted into a usable family room or office again.
Located in the desirable Sibley Tract, one of the most appealing sections of the centrally located Nineteenth Ward, the house is in one of the city zones eligible for the University of Rochester’s homeownership incentive programs; find out more at www.rochester.edu. If you’re looking for a sound, well-made house where a little TLC will go a long way to bringing back its sparkle, this 1,692-squarefoot house could be the one for you. The house is offered at $89,900. For more information, contact Deborah Craig of North Star Real Estate at (585) 328-7827.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD Norwegian public television (NRK), which introduced the now-legendary continuous, live log-burning show (12 hours long, with “color commentary” on the historical and cultural importance of fire), scheduled a new program for this week in its appeal to serenity (labeled “Slow TV”). On Nov. 1, NRK was to televise live, for five hours, an attempt to break the world record for producing a sweater, from shearing the sheep to spinning the wool and knitting the garment (current record: 4:51, by Australians). (In addition to the log, NRK viewers have been treated to live cams on a salmon-fishing boat and, for five days, on a cruise ship.) Said an NRK journalist, “You would think it’s boring television, but we have quite good ratings for these programs.”
The Entrepreneurial Spirit — Extract of cockroach is a delicacy
among some Chinese, believed able to miraculously reduce inflammation, defy aging and cure tuberculosis, cancer and cirrhosis. Quartz reported in August that Yunnan province is a Silicon Valley-type business center, where pulverized roaches can sell for the equivalent of about $89 a pound, and five pharmaceutical companies have contracts with ranches that have formed the Sichuan Treasure Cockroach Farming Cooperative. (In August, a start-up farm in Jiangsu province was, police suspect, vandalized, allowing at least a million cockroaches being prepared for market to flee to adjacent neighborhoods.) — When entrepreneur Michelle Esquenazi was asked by a New York Post reporter in September why her all-female crew of licensed bounty hunters
(Empire Bail Bonds of New York) is so successful at tricking bail-jumpers into the open, she offered a five-letter vulgar euphemism for a female body part. “It’s timeless,” she continued. “Of course he’s going to open his door for a nice piece of (deleted). ... The thing about defendants is no matter who they are (of whatever color), they’re all dumb. Every single last one of them is stupid.” — Hipster Haven: Two fearless entrepreneurs inaugurated services recently in faux-fashionable Brooklyn, N.Y. Lucy Sun, a Columbia University economics major, began seeking work as a $30-an-hour “book therapist,” to help readers find the “right” book to read or give as a gift, with attention to clients’ “specific situations.” In Brooklyn’s Greenpoint neighborhood in September, the stylish Eat restaurant began reserving certain nights’ meals to be experienced in total silence. On opening night, a Wall Street Journal reporter noted one throat-clearing and a muffled sneeze, but barely any other human sound. Some diners were won over; another said it felt like “being 50 and married.” — It’s expensive to go broke in America. Detroit, which most acknowledge acted wisely in filing for bankruptcy protection in July (in the face of debts estimated to be at least $18 billion), will nonetheless be on the hook for bankruptcy legal fees that could total $60 million under current contracts (according to an October New York Times report), plus various expenses, such as the $250,000 to Christie’s auction house to price and sell some assets. A fee examiner has been hired to keep the expenses in line, but he charges $600 an hour.
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 33 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Find your passionate wild-child side, and explore new people and places. Your fearless nature will attract a fabulous partner, but having a built-in caution and a flirtatious but coy persona will be what attracts someone very special and endearing. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Stop thinking so much and wasting so much time when you should be out looking for love. You can meet the person you’ve been dreaming about if you get out and attend a conference, exhibit or social event. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’ll attract partners who
don’t want to let go of a past relationship or are looking for a replacement for someone they’ve been involved with in the past. Look for someone ready to move forward instead of living in the past. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You will stand out and attract all sorts of personal attention. Your body language will be seductive, and your ability to reel in someone you are totally enamored with will prove that you are heading in a very positive direction with plenty of wonderful years ahead. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): When it comes to your personal
relationships, confusion is likely to strike. A lack of trust will surface. Ask questions and find out exactly where you stand before you waste more time. Cut short any connection that doesn’t make you feel good about you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You can strike it rich when it comes to love and companionship. Interacting with people who share your interests will lead to a deep and long-lasting relationship. Be open and receptive, and you will win someone’s attention and love. Let your intuition guide you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You will be confused by the actions of potential partners. Don’t look at what someone has when it’s who he or she is that counts. Maintain your high standards, and don’t give in to someone promising you monetary gifts instead of affection, honesty and integrity. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Just get on with it. You are in a perfect position to meet someone who is tuned in to you. Your insight is phenomenal, and your desires are easy to read. Make your move and don’t look back. Look and you will find true love. Proceed with confidence.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Keep some secrets if you don’t want to frighten someone you are interested in with your past shenanigans. Bide your time and get to know any love interest before you take a leap of faith and make a promise you’ll regret. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Strut your stuff, and prepare to have some fun. You don’t have to make a move or a commitment to anyone. Let lovers come to you, and you can take your time to pick and choose who you want to spend time with.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You are confused; stop trying to turn a friendship into something it’s not. You have to give love a chance by getting out, meeting new people and having fun. Love will find you when you stop looking for it. Look for respect and stop being a pushover. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll have plenty of suitors. Check everyone out and consider what’s being offered and what’s expected of you in return. Equality should be a factor when it comes to a long-term union. Don’t let your heart jump too quickly, or you may pick the wrong partner.
