Mount Hope Cemetery: a buried treasure Mount Hope Cemetery, dedicated in 1838, holds in its 196 acres more stories and mythology than many of us in the Flower City would guess. Over the past 175 years, the cemetery has become the final resting place for a variety of interesting people, and continues to serve as public burial grounds today — it is still owned and operated by the City of Rochester. Many know Mount Hope as the final resting place for notable Rochesterians like Susan B. Anthony,
Frederick Douglass, and others. But countless other interesting facts and legends surround the burial grounds at Mount Hope. In celebration of the cemetery’s 175th anniversary, which took place in October, members of the nonprofit group Friends of Mount Hope Cemetery shared some of these lesserknown points with City. Read on to find some of the most interesting things you may not know about Mount Hope Cemetery.

On Irondequoit’s library plans
A recent letter to the editor misleads the public about the Irondequoit library proposal (“The Issues in Irondequoit,” Feedback). In April, Irondequoit voters overwhelmingly approved a proposal to build a new central library on the Town Hall campus. Shortly after, an anti-library lawsuit was filed. In lieu of wasting money on litigation, a re-vote has been scheduled for December 14. Currently, Irondequoit operates two library branches less than three miles apart. This results in costly duplication in expenses. Combining our limited resources into operating a new central library is a much better use of taxpayer dollars. Building new is more cost effective, as the current library branches would require expensive construction, which costs more than the current proposal to build a new central library. Furthermore, building on the Town Hall campus will put property back on the tax rolls. The McGraw branch, assessed at over $1 million, could be sold, while the Evans branch reverts back to the West Irondequoit School district with the potential for the district to sell it and put it back on the tax rolls. While there is not yet a final design, both the Library and Town Boards have publicly vowed that the new library will complement the Town Hall building. Both boards have also said that any 2 CITY
trees that are salvageable will be moved to other parts of the Town Hall campus and new trees will be planted. Parking will not be an issue, as additional spots will be added and DPW staff will shift their parking. The Farmer’s Market and Fourth of July Festival will continue, and all operations will be coordinated so as to not cause parking issues. The cost of the project is $29 per year for the average $100,000 home, which includes interest. Grants, fundraising, and the sale of the McGraw property will offset as much of the costs as possible. I urge Irondequoit residents to get the facts at www.libraryproposal.com and attend the upcoming public information meetings. Dates will be finalized soon. STEPHANIE A. SQUICCIARINI

The fallacy of our Best of Rochester
I look to your paper for insight, commentary, and current local events and issues. However, I was dismayed (again) this year by the winner’s of the Best of Rochester ballot. I appreciate the brief preface/caveat provided by the editors; it helped to soften the foreboding sense of disappointment. After several years of taking part in the survey, I have taken a recreational interest in following local businesses and start-ups, tracking trends, and listening to discussion with many “stakeholders” in the area. As such, I assumed that I understood the popular opinion of businesses, blogs, restaurants, arts and the like in Rochester at any given time. If there is no malpractice involved, the only logical conclusion I have arrived at is that the survey sample has 1) no clue what comprises good aesthetic, quality, or taste or 2) formed opinions or decisions based on inexperience or lack of aptitude.
NOVEMBER 13-19, 2013
Your caveat states the survey is a glorified popularity contest; I understand this statement. What I do not understand is why City Newspaper promotes the survey as legitimate. Businesses often use the survey as a promotion; if the survey is a glorified popularity contest, how much merit can one assume by winning the ballot? Winners of the survey should be suspect based on the survey sample. I personally believe that the standard should be set higher for media outlets such as yourself, and that the City Newspaper name should be behind an actually qualified and deserving winner. Why doesn’t City Newspaper promote a survey where “qualified” foodies, socialites, experts, artists, musicians look at all entities fairly, unambiguously, and authoritatively? I would pay for such a survey; a Zagat Survey of Rochester. Thank you for your time and 51 weeks of great coverage. JOSEPH JACOBS
A feature (Best of Rochester) whose introduction incorporates both an apology and a disclaimer has clearly reached the end of its useful life span. What was once an interesting concept has deteriorated into an e-mail- influenced, skewed contest, influenced by how many employees one can “encourage” to vote in one’s behalf. Pit a pizza chain with over 40 outlets against unique pizzerias? An Italian restaurant with four seatings of over 100 people nightly open seven days a week and employing at least 100 people against a sixemployee restaurant? Equally important, responses represent both the distribution of City Newspaper itself (did you drop any off in the inner city 14621 area? GatesChili?) and (nightmares for Occupy Rochester!) the income demographics of our city.
Time to revamp, to restore both interest and relevance. NEIL R. SCHEIER
From the editors: For the record, we have numerous distribution sites in both the 14621 and Gates-Chili areas.
I participated in the charrette and presented our group’s findings at the end of the day (“Reining in Urban Sprawl,” News). There were some statements in presentations by folks who participated that tended to lean on some gentrification of the two mobile-home parks in the village. I intend to participate further. I hope we can do so without resorting to gentrification. LIMA CITIZEN
Gambling is good for you!
I’ve seen the TV ads. I’ve read the newspaper endorsements and the political mailings. I’m convinced; gambling will be good for me. If fact, it’s hard to find any down side. We will keep millions of dollars in New York State, have more money for education, create jobs, and even lower taxes! My God, gambling is the medicine that will cure all our economic ills! Why didn’t we do this sooner? Why, right here in Rochester alone there will be many opportunities and advantages. Without doubt, the greatest beneficiary of more gambling will be our colleges and universities. St. John Fisher College might open a School of Casino Management. Nazareth College could extend its art major to include Vegas Style Choreography and Dance. MCC will be a big winner with new courses in bartending, dealing, security, floor walking, and valet parking. RIT could add a College of Gambling Software to work in conjunction with its animation and digital programming departments. Much of the next
generation of gamblers will likely play hybrid videogame/slot machines, where the choices of the characters will be determined by a pull on the handle. Local schools with nursing programs will increase enrollments as new specialties arise in the treatment of chronic carpal tunnel syndrome, respiratory diseases, and depression. New hospitals will be needed to treat the cancer and asthma that employees will acquire working in dense, smoke filled rooms. That also means more doctors and perhaps, if we’re lucky, a new world class Cancer Treatment Center. Government employment will expand as well as more public housing for the elderly who have squandered their retirement savings will be needed, and Rochester can finally get back that suicide hotline that was eliminated due to lack of funding. Pundits have long bemoaned the brain drain of local college grads moving where there are more jobs. With increased gambling, this trend should be reversed. There will be jobs galore in the arts, in technology, in the sciences, in health care, in the “service class,” and especially in mental health services treating addiction. Perhaps new slot machine manufacturers will locate in the Kodak Business Park. It will be just like the old days! Prosperity for all! And the beauty is, no product must be produced, no damage to the environment. (They have fantastic cigarette-smoke scrubbers now!) Gambling is a godsend. It will put people to work, improve our schools, lower taxes, build new businesses, and fix the local economy. Why did we wait so long? It’s just too bad we can’t do the same thing with heroin and crack! Boy, then none of us would have to work anymore. PETE TONERY

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
A BURST OF
Lovely Warren’s next campaign Even if she hadn’t won last week, Lovely Warren would deserve credit for focusing relentlessly on the existence of “two Rochesters” during her campaign for mayor. Dealing with poverty and its consequences in Rochester’s inner city is the most important challenge this city faces. In less than two months, Warren will be responsible for leading the community in meeting that challenge. I don’t know anybody who thinks government can do that by itself, but certainly government can do many things. Warren believes City Hall can do more that it has done, both on its own and by leveraging private and non-profit resources. And in her campaign, she outlined numerous programs she wants to pursue, all of them aimed at problems that so far, we haven’t been able to solve. But each of her proposals has its own set of challenges and, in some cases, risks. To focus on a few: Jobs: Warren hopes to reduce the poverty of inner-city residents through job creation and training. The challenge, though, will be to develop jobs that last longer than a construction project, jobs that pay well and will provide a stable future – and to match those jobs with Rochesterians whose education is woefully inadequate and who have little employment experience. Education: While she says she won’t pursue mayoral control, clearly Warren wants to involve City Hall much more actively in education. And while she says she will support the efforts of the Rochester school district, she also wants to provide funding and other support for charter and private schools. All of us share her distress over the academic level of Rochester’s children. But if Warren is successful in some of those initiatives – expanding charter schools, for instance – the community should understand what will happen: the Rochester school district will continue to lose students and state aid. And it will be left with the students with the most problems and with less money to teach them. Crime: Warren is convinced that her administration can do a better job reducing crime – which is concentrated in the inner city – than the Richards administration has. And she has pledged to have police be more aggressive in going after drug dealers and other criminals. The challenge will be to do that without violating the rights of Rochester residents – and without sucking more African-American youths into the criminal justice system.
Warren believes City Hall can do more that it has. But each of her proposals has its own set of challenges.”

Development: Warren is not antidevelopment. Her record on City Council proves that. But she will have different priorities than Tom Richards has had, and she may offer less aggressive incentives to developers, particularly downtown. If Richards was correct in believing that the incentives were necessary, we could see the pace of downtown development start to slow. That will hurt not only downtown interests but also the neighborhoods that Warren most wants to help. Warren may very well turn out to be the very person Rochester needs right now. Clearly, the majority of Rochesterians who voted last week believe she is. And if she runs City Hall as intelligently and successfully as she and her supporters ran her campaign, she’ll prove that her critics (myself included) were wrong to worry that she wasn’t up to the job. With her campaign focus on the terrible human consequences of concentrated poverty, she did the entire community an important service. And with her election, she has brought hope to a lot of people in Rochester’s poorest neighborhoods. Early in her campaign, when critics suggested that she wait four more years to run for mayor, Warren said Rochester’s poorest residents couldn’t wait any longer for change. She can’t work miracles, though; Rochester’s problems are too large to be solved quickly. One of her biggest challenges, then, will be to avoid betraying the hopes of those who elected her. The first step will be to appoint exceptionally qualified people to her administration. We probably won’t have to wait long to learn how she does in that area.

Members of Teamsters Local 118 voted to accept a contract proposal from Wegmans. The deal was the same one that Wegmans and union officials agreed to during an October 12 meeting and includes a switch from a union pension fund to Wegmans’ own retirement plan. The contract also gives workers an 18 percent raise over its six-year life and a $1,000 lump-sum payment for full-timers.

The four, including Brooks’s husband, Robert Wiesner, face felony charges as a result of the state Attorney General’s probe into two countylinked local development corporations. The Attorney General’s Office outlined its case against the four defendants in an indictment, which was unsealed by acting county court Justice Robert Noonan last week. The AG’s Office alleges that the four defendants all had a hand in a scheme to rig bids so that favored companies would get contracts with one or both of the LDC’s in question: Upstate Telecommunications Corporation and Monroe Safety and Security Systems.
The history of the LDC controversy is complicated, with roots in two critical state Comptroller’s Office audits related to UTC and M3S. In short, the AG’s Office alleges that, in addition to manipulating the contracts, two officers of the corporations used fake contracts, inflated subcontracts, and falsified invoices to steal money from LDC projects. The allegations — all four men have pleaded not guilty — are troubling, of course. And they reinforce years of criticisms leveled by government watchdogs and some state and local politicians. continues on page 7

Food benefits decreasing
In Monroe County, food stamp cuts come at a time of growing need. In January 2011, 108,078 people in 55,220 Monroe County households received Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits, according to the state Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance. In August 2013, the number had risen to 120,332 recipients in 63,973 households. The current decrease, which took effect this month, is related to the 2009 federal stimulus. The legislation included a boost in SNAP funding, more commonly known as food stamps. But that funding expired at the end of October. After the cut, SNAP benefits average less than $1.40 per person, per meal, says the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, a national think-tank that focuses on issues affecting low- and moderate-income people. “For most of the families we talk to, SNAP doesn’t meet all of their food needs,” says Sue Segelman, nutrition education and outreach coordinator for Legal Assistance of Western New York. Many SNAP recipients rely on local food pantries and soup kitchens for additional assistance, she says, particularly toward the end of the month. And those organizations may see an increase in clients as a result of the cuts. Foodlink has already seen increases in the number of people it serves through its
A former gas station at the intersection of Jefferson Avenue and Fairport Road in Perinton had been a vacant eyesore on a busy corridor for at least a decade. So when the building was finally ready to come down, the town let the property’s neighbors vent their pent-up frustration by giving them a sledgehammer and letting them swing away. The demolition party took place last Saturday. | “We decided to have a little fun with it,” said Perinton Supervisor Jim Smith. | The site sat idle for so long because the former owner, Amerada Hess Corporation, was doing cleanup work; gas stations often leave behind substantial soil and ground water contamination. But the building deteriorated over the years. This is a common problem with contaminated sites (brownfields), which often can’t be redeveloped or reused until they are cleaned up. | The town now owns the site and will ultimate use it to relocate O’Connor Road, Smith said. The move will allow the road to use the traffic light currently shared by Jefferson Avenue and Fairport Road. | O’Connor intersects with Fairport Road just below Perinton Park and does not have a traffic light.

organizations, says Foodlink’s SNAP outreach and assistance coordinator, Jerome Nathaniel. In 2010, Foodlink served 125,000 people — a number that rose to 150,000 in 2012, he says. The organization distributes food to pantries and soup kitchens in 10 counties surrounding Rochester. Foodlink has also seen growing interest in a program that helps first-time SNAP recipients apply for benefits. It served 45 people in March, Nathaniel says. But in September it assisted 92 people, he says. Local low-income nutrition program coordinators are worried about the next set of likely cuts, which are contained in House and Senate farm bills. In the House, the Republican majority drafted and passed legislation that would cut SNAP funding by $40 billion over 10 years. The Senate’s proposal, drafted by the Democratic majority, would cut $4 billion from the program over a decade. Senate and House negotiators are currently trying to reconcile the bills.

POLITICS | BY CITY NEWS STAFF
Elections fallout: What happens next? Two Monroe County suburbs and the City of Rochester will see big changes at the top as a result of last week’s elections. But despite the Rochester school district’s poor performance and the fact that the winning mayoral candidate campaigned on a pledge to bring more charter schools to the city, voters awarded all school board incumbents another term. Mayor-elect Lovely Warren, a Democrat, scored a decisive victory over incumbent mayor Tom Richards, who ran on the Independence and Working Families lines, and Green Party candidate Alex White. White, who has run for City Council and mayor in the past, fared poorly — earning only about 5 percent of the vote. But this was an unusual election, and he may have gotten lost in the noise between Warren and Richards. All five City Council incumbents breezed to re-election. The question now is how many, if any, Council people are in line for jobs with the Warren administration. Council Vice President Dana Miller and Council member Adam McFadden, both Warren supporters, are rumored to be in the running. More questions: Who will take Warren’s seat on City Council, and who will Council elect as its next president? The makeup and the leadership of Council will be important as Warren attempts to implement her agenda. Council’s cooperation — as well as its watchdog function — will be critical. According to the City Charter, Council has the authority to appoint a person to fill Warren’s seat to hold office until January 1, 2015. That person would run in the November 2014 general election to serve the final year of Warren’s term. As is common with a new administration, Warren will likely want to assemble her own leadership team. She must get City Council’s approval for most of the appointments, but some can be made unilaterally. The latter includes deputy mayor and the heads of the city’s communications bureau and the Office of Public Integrity.
Rochester school district
Voters returned Jose Cruz, Cynthia Elliott, and Van White to the school board of a
district that is by almost every account the worst performing in the state, with some reports ranking it near the bottom nationally. The board’s critics, including some candidates who challenged the incumbents, argued that the Rochester school district has shown no signs of improvement and has even worsened under the tenure of Cruz, Elliott, and White. Still, voters chose the incumbents. White says that there’s a growing understanding among voters and the 6 CITY
NOVEMBER 13-19, 2013
community at large that the district’s problems existed before the incumbents arrived. “They don’t blame us because they know we’re not responsible, but the majority do trust us with the responsibility of fixing the district,” he says. “And that is going to take more time.” And he says it will require greater communication and collaboration between the district, City Hall, and the county. But Mayor-elect Warren, who made education the centerpiece of her platform, says that parents can’t wait for the city school district to get its act together. Parents need better choices now, she says, and that’s why she supports charter schools. Warren’s stance could damage the fragile relationship between City Hall and the school district. Richards has taken steps to heal the rift after years of animosity between the two entities. But there are ways that Warren could help the district. She could continue to showcase her personal story, for one, which speaks to the importance of making a personal commitment to success. Warren has risen from humble beginnings to an impressive career in politics. She knows as well as anyone that Superintendent Bolgen Vargas’s efforts to increase attendance and improve reading proficiency are critical. Warren’s enchantment with charter schools could also encourage her to help begin the transfer of charters’ most effective practices to city schools, which was the original intent of charter school legislation. A recent study by Mathematica Policy Research and the Center on Reinventing Public Education showed that charter management organizations attribute their success to three practices: smaller schools, reduced classroom sizes, and strict behavioral conduct. Could Warren use the influence she says she has in Albany to support such reforms? If she did, she’d likely be embraced by both the district and the school board. And the city could avoid an upheaval that will

only drive more middle income families out of city schools to suburban districts — something that would further shrink the city’s tax base.
The county’s most contentious suburban races happened in Henrietta and Irondequoit. And in both towns, the incumbent supervisors lost. In Henrietta, Republican Town Board member Jack Moore narrowly defeated sitting Supervisor Michael Yudelson. Moore ran an aggressive and visible campaign, and spent a lot of time knocking on voters’ doors. Ultimately, that may have given him the edge. Democrats swept Irondequoit’s supervisor and Town Board elections, which means that come January, the Town Board will be entirely Democratic. Adam Bello defeated sitting Republican Supervisor Mary Joyce D’Aurizio, while Dave Seeley and Lorie Barnum beat Republicans Paul Marasco — a current Town Board member — and Bill Brongo. During their campaigns, Bello, Seeley, and Barnum charged that the town’s leadership hasn’t been aggressive enough in enforcing the terms of a tax incentive agreement for Medley Centre. Developer Scott Congel has made slight progress on redeveloping the mostly vacant mall. But Irondequoit has had little recourse, due to the constraints of the tax incentive agreement. And Democrats will have to work within that same agreement. While Congel may have missed some deadlines, he’s hasn’t defaulted on the agreement. The town can’t terminate the deal, anyway. That
ability lies solely with the Monroe County Industrial Development Agency. The Democrats recognize the problem, but said they’d aggressively advocate for COMIDA to terminate the agreement, since Congel hasn’t lived up to expectations. They also said that the town needs to do a better job of holding the developer to town code requirements, such as keeping the grass mowed. Two County Legislature seats were also on
the ballot. Sitting Democratic Legislator Joe Morelle Jr. kept his 17th District seat, which covers parts of Irondequoit. In the 19th District, which covers parts of Greece and Parma, voters chose Republican Kathleen Taylor to replace fellow Republican Jeff McCann, who is leaving the Lej because of term limits. Oddly, the results of a few town races will generate more turnover in the Legislature than the direct Lej races. Three Republican legislators won their respective bids for town seats, so they’ll have to give up their Legislature seats. In Perinton, Mike Barker was elected supervisor and Ciaran Hanna was elected to the Town Board. And in Greece, Rick Antelli was elected as the new receiver of taxes (he’ll succeed County Legislator-elect Taylor). Once the seats are officially vacated, Legislators will have to appoint Republicans to fill them. So come January, the 18-member Republican caucus will have four new members in total. Whether Barker, Hanna, or Antelli will resign their seats before year’s end remains to be seen.

Legislature Democrats have been particularly critical. The LDC’s operate with inadequate oversight, which makes them fertile grounds for abuse, said Legislature Democratic Minority Leader Carrie Andrews during a press conference last week. And Andrews reminded reporters that Democrats have tried to pass reforms aimed at preventing the sorts of problems contained in the indictment. When the proposal to create M3S came through the Legislature, Democrats offered a measure that would have required all contracts to come back to the Legislature for approval. Republicans shot that, as well as other oversight measures, down. The legislation creating the LDC ultimately passed, but only Republicans voted for it. Wiesner, who served as director of security
for the Monroe County Water Authority from 2011 until earlier this year, faces two felony bid-rigging charges. The indictment doesn’t say exactly what the former Rochester police captain did; it only includes a general accusation that he was part of the scheme. Also facing charges are Nelson Rivera, the county’s former chief information officer, and John Maggio, president of Navitech Services Corp. Daniel Lynch, president of Treadstone — a Navitech subcontractor that also has Maggio as an officer — and a former sales executive for Siemens Building Technologies, was charged a few weeks ago in connection with the probe. But the indictment unsealed last week expanded on those allegations, and Lynch now faces a slew of additional charges; he’s named in all 25 counts of the indictment. The two LDC’s contract with Navitech for management services and Navitech has, in turn, subcontracted out various services and equipment acquisitions. Upstate Telecommunications provides information systems, including phones and computers, to the county. Monroe Safety and Security Systems owns the county’s emergency communications infrastructure and leases it to the county. It’s currently upgrading the system — which is the purpose that the LDC was created. The indictment alleges that Maggio and Lynch, with assistance from Rivera, used a complex system of fake contracts, inflated subcontracts, and falsified invoices to steal money from LDC projects over a period of years. Rivera faces two charges of falsifying business records, in addition to bid-rigging charges. Maggio and Lynch face some of the most serious charges including grand larceny, criminal conspiracy, and money laundering. As for the immediate fallout, County
Executive Maggie Brooks asked the two LDC boards to terminate their contracts with Navitech. In July, Brooks hired former state Attorney General Dennis Vacco to conduct an
internal review of the LDC’s. During a press conference in Brooks’s office last week, Vacco said that he recommended terminating the Navitech contract, as well as cancelling any subcontracts with entities implicated in the attorney general’s office investigation. Brooks said that the two local development corporations help the county perform important functions in cost-effective ways. She regularly calls the LDC’s public-private partnerships — framing them as innovative ways for financially stressed governments to serve taxpayers. As for the charges facing Wiesner, Brooks didn’t say much. “There’s two things I don’t talk about: personnel issues and personal issues,” she said at the press conference. But Legislature Minority Leader Andrews called for Brooks to step away from the investigation and for the Legislature to assume oversight of Vacco’s review. Andrews said that she hadn’t heard any of Vacco’s findings or recommendations until his press conference with Brooks. Vacco should report his work to the Legislature, she said, which should then lead the investigation of the LDC’s. “I think that the county executive has a clear conflict of interest, and that’s the bottom line,” Andrews said. During a separate press conference last week, Wiesner read a brief prepared statement, while his attorney spoke at some length on his behalf. Both said that Wiesner had no role in any part of UTC’s bid request or selection process. They also said that he had no involvement in the M3S contract process or selection. (The indictment says that the Water Authority has an agreement with the county to update its safety and security equipment. That work is part of the county’s contract with M3S.) They said that Wiesner’s prosecution is political. To support that criticism, they pointed to the way that last week’s arrests and arraignments were handled. Officials with the state attorney general’s office marched Wiesner and the other defendants — in handcuffs — across Exchange Boulevard to the city’s Public Safety Building, before the indictment was unsealed. A deputy press secretary for the AG’s office had tipped off some local media to what’s commonly called a “perp walk.” “In my 30 years in law enforcement I have never treated a defendant as I was treated yesterday,” Wiesner said at the press conference. “It was a blatant and calculated act by the attorney general’s office to embarrass me, embarrass my wife, and prejudice the case.” The deputy press secretary who tipped off the media has been suspended. And Wiesner’s attorney, James Nobles, says that the attorneys for all four defendants are considering legal action.

Dining and pureed eggplant, tahini, olive oil, garlic, and herbs. Though pureed, the eggplant isn’t an unappealing mush; there are small, toothy strands reminding you of the vegetable’s earlier form, and it’s a pleasure to feel the contrast of that against the silkiness from the tahini and oil.

Route 31F is a busy thoroughfare, particularly the section south of the 590 ramp and north of the Pittsford village. It’s a suburban, commercial juggernaut. Get a bestseller fix at Barnes & Noble, a bag of frozen Parisian carrots at Trader Joe’s, a whimsical serving platter at People’s Pottery, a Pomeranian-sized Christmas sweater at Petco — all of it, and more, is located within a mile-long strip of road. And then there are the restaurants. If you were particularly hungry, or training for a major-league competitive eating event, there are few places in the Greater Rochester area with a retail-space-to-calorie-ratio as dense. You can get surf ‘n’ turf at Black & Blue, Thai at Mamasan’s, carrot-cake-cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory, burgers at Five Guys, Italian at Mario’s, Benucci’s, and Pomodoro. And that’s not even considering a slew of fast-food joints. At the northern end of this strip, across the street from Clover Lanes and neighboring
a Comfort Inn, is Rumi’s Grill & Cafe. Its namesake is Rumi, the 13th Century Sufi mystic and poet, and the restaurant’s ethos comes from this quote attributed to him: “Come, come, whoever you are. Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving. It doesn’t matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair. Come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times. Come, yet again, come, come.” “We would like [the community] to eat all under the same roof, regardless of race, religion, creed, etc.,” says owner Ahmet Nukyen. “Put all differences aside and have meals together.” Nukyen seems successful in this: his restaurant attracts people of all ages, skin tones, and, it seems, varying zip codes. If you can look past the architecture of the restaurant (it resides in the bones of a by-gone Pizza Hut) and a few items perhaps designed to cater to more American palates (“Original Cheesecake Xangos™”) you may find it to be one of the least commercial, most authentic eateries in the Pittsford commercial zone. Rumi’s features cuisine from across the Mediterranean, but there’s a particular emphasis on Turkish foods. Take, for example, ayran ($2.49), a salty, acerbic yogurt drink packaged in a small blue-and-white plastic bottle; mercimek ($3.95), a soup made from
red lentils; and lahmacun, a thin, flat bread topped with spiced, ground beef ($2.95). The restaurant shines brightly when it focuses on traditional preparations, a number of which you can sample in the Mediterranean antipasta platter ($12) featuring dolmades, eggplant in tomato sauce, hummus, olives stuffed with almonds, and artichoke hearts drizzled with balsamic vinegar. The grape leaves used in the dolmades are soft with the tiniest snap, stuffed with a yielding, almost creamy rice flavored with mint and dill. The hummus is thick and rich, with a pronounced sesame flavor. It’s hearty; not as smooth and loose as other versions. When you swipe a rectangle of the focaccialike bread served with your meal through the hummus, it parts in the center but stands tall and firm — the Red Sea of dips. The best part of the antipasta platter, however, is the eggplant with tomatoes. Chunky bits of custardy eggplant are surrounded by a tomato sauce spiked with red vinegar and garlic. There’s just the right balance of flavors: sweet toward the tip of your tongue, then a tangy, slightly acid finish. The eggplant can be ordered on its own as an appetizer special; look for the Mediterranean eggplant ($8). Eggplant stars again in Rumi’s baba ganoush ($6.95), classically made with roasted
The adana ($14.95), which comes with a choice of sides, is a blend of seasoned and finely chopped lamb and beef. The adanas are formed into long, cylindrical patties around skewers before being grilled. The lamb’s flavor is rich but mellowed by the beef. There’s a touch of char and a slightly spicy finish. Similarly satisfying are the lamb ($17.95) or beef ($15.95) shish kabob platters, which are also served with a choice of sides. Both are simply prepared — a few seasonings before being flame grilled — and hit the spot. The beef is cut from filet mignon (this cut comes from the smaller end of a beef tenderloin) and retains that appealing tenderness. The lamb is mild, tender, and sweet; if you like lamb, this is a good way to enjoy it. The BBQ lamb ribs special ($18.95) — a Flintstones-sized rack of ribs — is not as successful. The rich gaminess of the meat doesn’t jibe with the sweetness of the sauce. The service at Rumi’s, while warm and friendly, can be uneven. Empty dishes lingered on the table too long, and water glasses occasionally remained unfilled. But your server will happily answer any questions you may have about the menu, help you choose dishes that suit your tastes, and remember you when you come back to dine again. There are Mediterranean and Middle Eastern flourishes in the decor and atmosphere — brightly colored paisley wallpaper; photographs of the landscape; nazar amulets designed to ward off the evil eye — but not quite enough to shake the feeling that you’re eating in a former Pizza Hut, which you are. Nukyen says he is working to make his restaurant to more comfortable for diners, and improvements in this area are forthcoming. One thing that I hope does not change is the kunefe ($8.95), a dessert good enough to transport you from Monroe Avenue to its origin site in Turkey. Served on a small, hot metal plate with a one-inch lip, the kunefe sits in the middle, slightly domed, sprinkled with crushed, roasted pistachios and drenched in a honey-based syrup. Use your fork to part the layers of shredded phyllo and eat quickly. It’s important to enjoy the kunefe while hot so that the cheese tucked inside — sweet and mild like an unsalted mozzarella — remains supple. It stretches a few inches from the plate to the fork, then gently snaps as you bring it to your mouth. The contrasts of crisp and chewy, sweet and salty, all underscored by heat, is lovely. rochestercitynewspaper.com

TREASURE fascinating facts about the 175-year-old
MOUNT HOPE CEMETERY ount Hope Cemetery, dedicated in 1838, holds in its 196 acres more stories and mythology than many of us in the Flower City would guess. Over the past 175 years, the cemetery has become the final resting place for a variety of interesting people, and continues to serve as public burial grounds today â€” it is still owned and operated by the City of Rochester. Its dynamic landscape off Mount Hope Avenue is home to 82 mausoleums and many awe-inspiring architectural landmarks.
More recently in its storied history, a non-profit organization called the Friends of
Mount Hope Cemetery has dedicated itself to helping to maintain the site. Founded in 1980 and currently headed by Marilyn Nolte, FOMH seeks to restore, preserve, and encourage public use and enjoyment of this cultural landmark. Its tour program, which runs from May through October, offers guided tours through both the south and north sections of the cemetery, as well as themed tours. (For more information visit fomh.org.)
Many know Mount Hope as the final resting place for notable Rochesterians like Susan
B. Anthony, Frederick Douglass, and others. But countless other interesting facts and legends surround the burial grounds at Mount Hope. In celebration of the cemeteryâ€™s 175th anniversary, which took place in October, Friends of Mount Hope Cemetery member Dennis Carr shared some of these lesser-known points with City. Below find some of the most interesting things you may not know about Mount Hope Cemetery. 10 CITY NOVEMBER 13-19, 2013
Between 1832 and 1834, Rochester saw a significant cholera outbreak. Reportedly 110 people in a city of roughly 10,000 at the time were affected and died. This outbreak caused a sudden need for more burial space, and was one of the most significant factors in the opening of Mount Hope Cemetery. Initially, the cemetery was located a mile and a quarter beyond the city limits. Since then the city property line has expanded outward to include it.
Beyond the need for more burial space, the cemetery was also built to function as a public attraction. Rochester — one of America’s first boomtowns — was at the heart of the Industrial Revolution. As the population rapidly expanded at the rate of nearly 300 people per day in the early 1830’s, the City of Rochester built Mount Hope Cemetery to enhance the quality of life for people who settled here. The site became one of the first public park-like cemeteries in the United States, and people and families often visited it for leisure time and activities. To enhance the cemetery’s appeal as a public attraction, the graveyard was purposely built on a challenging landscape. Formed by glaciers during the last ice age, the location features hills, valleys,
swamps, and heavily wooded areas. The cemetery itself is modeled after Mount Auburn Cemetery, a 170-acre graveyard in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Today, Mount Hope Cemetery continues to serve as more than just an interment site — it’s a precious green space in an urban area that’s been overtaken by concrete. According to the most recent census information, the population of the City of Rochester stands at just more than 210,000. There are more than 350,000 people buried at Mount Hope Cemetery. Yes, that’s right — more people are buried at the Cemetery than are currently living within Rochester city limits.
Most Rochesterians know that historical figures Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass are buried at storied Mount Hope. However, they are just two of many notable people who have been laid to rest at the cemetery. For example, Ida Jane Anderson was a nurse at Rochester General Hospital when it was located on West Main Street. Anderson was a forward-thinking woman who was concerned with standardizing nursing
practices. In 1903, she was appointed to a commission set up by the governor of New York State to identify licensing requirements for registered nurses. As a result, Anderson was issued the first nursing license in New York State.
Similarly, progressive public-health nurse Lillian Wald is also buried at Mount Hope. Wald was a contemporary of Jane Adams, who ran the Henry Street Settlement in New York City, which provided services to new immigrants and the poor. When the flu epidemic struck in 1918, Wald developed the concept of public-health nursing, and coined the term. One of the most prominent millwrights in history, Robert Dalzell, is buried at Mount Hope. Dalzell came to Rochester in 1826, and built 18 flour mills between then and the 1850’s. One of these mills, built in the 1830’s, was the first in the world to incorporate a mechanical grain elevator. It was one of the most technologically advanced mills in the United States at the time, and helped Rochester earn its “Flour City” nickname.

Mount Hope is where our city’s namesake, Nathaniel Rochester, is buried. Rochester traveled here from Maryland with his business partners in 1803, buying acres of land near Dansville. When Rochester and other settlers in that location began to be harassed by the British during the War of 1812, they moved north into the beginnings of what would become Rochester. On Rochester’s family plot, it says in Latin, “If you would behold this monument, look around you.” (This same inscription can be seen in St. Paul’s Cathedral in London, referring to architect Sir Christopher Wren.) While suffragist Susan B. Anthony herself is indeed buried at the cemetery, many others involved in her 1872 arrest and trial for illegal voting are also buried on the grounds. They include Elisha Keeney, the U.S. Marshall who arrested her; Henry Selden, her lawyer; Beverly Jones, the registrar who registered Susan B. to vote and was later jailed for it; and Commissioner William Storrs, to whom she was summoned when she was arrested. They are all buried quite close to her.
Beyond those related to our local history, some who are buried at the cemetery were involved in famous historical events. Stanley Fox was a gear salesman with Gleason Works who traveled to England on business. When Fox finished his job across the pond, he turned his thoughts homeward and boarded a little ship known as the Titanic. He died in the infamous disaster in April 1912, and his body was sent to Halifax to be identified and claimed by his family. A woman named Lydia Fox arrived to claim Stanley’s body, and the casket was loaded onto a train to travel home with her. Shortly after the train’s departure, a telegram was received from Cora Fox — Stanley Fox’s wife — saying that Lydia was an impostor trying to commit insurance fraud. The body was recovered from the train at the
next station without Lydia’s knowledge, and returned to Rochester to be buried in the family plot. As one might imagine, Mount Hope Cemetery has its share of creepy stories. One in particular stands out. Edward Crone was a student at Geneva’s Hobart and William Smith Colleges in the early 1940’s. He was studying to be an Episcopal priest, but enlisted in the army when World War II began. During his time in the service, Crone was taken prisoner by the Germans and held in Dresden in a building that had been a slaughterhouse — Slaughterhouse-Five. Imprisoned alongside Kurt Vonnegut, Crone became unhinged when the Germans prisoners were made to recover bodies after the Allies bombed Dresden. He stopped eating, and starved to death in the camp. His parents eventually recovered his body, and it was brought back to Rochester to be buried at Mount Hope Cemetery. Vonnegut used Crone as the model for Billy Pilgrim, the main character in his famous novel, “Slaughterhouse-Five.”
Mount Hope’s many tales do not all relate to pivotal movements in American history. Some are just good old-fashioned love stories. Harvey Foote and Margaret Peterson — a medical student and nurse during the Civil War, respectively — are buried there together. The two met in 1864 at St. Mary’s Hospital, where they both worked.
12 CITY NOVEMBER 13-19, 2013
They quickly fell in love, and planned to marry. Soon after, a smallpox epidemic took hold. Foote decided to inoculate both himself and his lover. Sadly, the vaccine he used was contaminated and Peterson died. Foote was so distraught that his own health failed, and he too died shortly after. Both were in their early 20s when they died.
While the cemetery is the resting place for hundreds of thousands of unrelated individuals, several large organizations own plots of land within its borders. The University of Rochester purchased a large plot just two years after its founding in 1850 so that important members of the University community could be buried there. Among many others, UR presidents Martin Brewer Anderson — the University’s first president — and Rush Rhees are buried at Mount Hope.
Though it’s now known as the Hillside Children’s Center, the Rochester Orphan Asylum was founded in 1837. The institution purchased a plot at Mount Hope Cemetery shortly after its founding. After half of its building burned down in a fire in 1901, the 29 children who died in the fire were buried at Mount Hope. Over the years, many children who died at the asylum were buried in the organization’s plot at the cemetery.
Mount Hope Cemetery’s cultural relevance extends beyond the bodies buried there. The cemetery features 83 mausoleums and is home to many significant architectural works, one of the most impressive being its Victorian Gothic gatehouse, located near the cemetery’s north entrance on Mount Hope Avenue. The gatehouse at Mount Hope was constructed in 1874. Designed by architect Andrew Warner, the structure was intended to complement the Gothic chapel and Moorish gazebo in place on the grounds.
Indeed, many of the architectural landmarks at Mount Hope are what continue to draw visitors to the grounds. One of the most popular structures is the Florentine castiron fountain, which was built in 1875 to create a more impressive entrance at Mount Hope. Egyptian Revival was also an early architectural style at the cemetery. The obelisk, a symbol of the Egyptian sun god Ra, is prominent throughout the earliersettled parts of the cemetery. The early popularity of this type of architecture in the United States is indicative of what the Friends of Mount Hope refer to as a sort of “national inferiority complex.” At the time these landmarks were built, art from old-world cultures was considered high class. This is one of the reasons Greek and Roman influences can be seen prominently throughout the cemetery.
Want more creepiness? Of course you do. Carr tells the story of Rochester’s first murder case: both the victim and the perpetrator are buried at
Mount Hope, and in quite close proximity to each other in the old single-graves area near Elmwood Avenue. In 1837, 19-year-old Octavius Barron murdered William Lyman, a bookkeeper and manager at one of the flour mills. Barron learned that Lyman had been stealing money from the mill, and shot him in the back of the head in an attempt to steal the $5,000 Lyman had taken from the mill that night. He took Lyman’s billfold out of his coat and ran to a nearby saloon. When looking through the billfold, however, he realized that it contained very little money. It was later revealed that Lyman had stored the money in a hat he was wearing, which rolled away when he was shot. Barron was eventually tried and hung at Monroe County Jail. One final murder tale from Carr should sate your appetite for cemetery legends. Marion Ira Stout, known to most as Ira, came to Rochester in 1857 after being released from a Pennsylvania jail. He learned that his sister Sarah was being beaten by her reportedly alcoholic husband, Charles Littles. Together, Ira and Sarah hatched a plan to murder Littles. One day, Ira told Littles that Sarah was going up to High Falls to meet a lover. When Littles pursued her there, Ira followed and smashed his skull with a hammer, eventually pushing his body over the falls. However, the body landed on a ledge. When Sarah and Ira climbed down to push it over, they injured themselves and left behind personal belongings that made it easy to connect them to the crime. They were tried, and convicted. Ira was eventually hung and buried at Mount Hope Cemetery.

[ POP/ROCK ] Little Big League, based in Philadelphia, makes music that recalls the pop-punk sound of the 90s and early 2000s, when the genre was heavily influenced by the burgeoning indie-rock scene. Reminiscent of artists like Tegan and Sara and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the band combines a pop-punk inspired love of melody and structure with hazy, distorted instrumentation and a relaxed tempo. The band’s music serves as a revival of the indie-rock that defined the genre some ten years ago: a revival that feels fresh, as it contrasts greatly with the majority of the music in both the indie-rock and post-punk scenes today. — BY LEAH CREARY

Solace and release [ REVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
I don’t know about you, but I dig an eclectic bill. I once saw Junior Brown open for Mudhoney at Brownies in NYC. I once saw a ska band share the bill with The Jesus Lizard. My own rockabilly band actually played on the same bill as Limp Bizkit and The Deftones. Seriously, I like bills that make no sense. But I also dig ones that do; perfectly symmetrical, genre-related, kissingcousin triple bills like the one I caught Friday night at the Zeppa Auditorium (formerly the German House Theatre). What you had was a celebration of exuberant and original roots-rock with Watkins & the Rapiers, The Dan Eaton Band, and The Mighty High and Dry. Each band is fiercely original with shades of their roots and influences pinned on their sleeves. Watkins & the Rapiers write with a stark elegance and a wry smirk and one toe dipped in the Liverpool. The Dan Eaton Band plays like Graham Parker with flashes of anger and love. The songs go from full-on blasters to folky lullabies with equal amounts of solace and release. The Mighty High and Dry comes off as a team of Muscle Shoals session men on a whisky
[ BLUES ]
jag. The music threatens to overtake the musicians as it washes over them, as well as the audience. Now, in order to be original in the rootsrock church you have to not necessarily genuflect, but at least acknowledge the roots. Roots that, in delivering their comfort and familiarity, may limit an artist. The only way to get wings is in the personal stories, the words, the lyrics. And according to rumor, Rochester country great Jeff Riales has suggested that bands all write a song all using the line “Don’t go drinking on an empty heart.” Each band turned in its stab Friday night, and it came off great. Later that night at Lovin’ Cup, hips were twitching and spines were getting cracked. It was a boisterous band — the new lineup for AudioInflux — paying tribute to producer J Dilla and the Godfather of Soul, James Brown. The band played with a deadly horn section, DJ Tim Tones, and a completely over-the-top singer in Chaz Bruce. Bruce conjured JB’s ghost with his raunchy vocals and theatrics. The groove was so deep you could smell Chinese food.

Stretching boundaries 10³²K FEATURING FRANK LACY, KEVIN RAY, AND ANDREW DRURY SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 17 BOP SHOP RECORDS, 1460 MONROE AVE. 7 P.M. | $10 DONATION REQUESTED BOPSHOP.COM
There’s no mistaking it when Ku-umba Frank Lacy really gets going. He lifts his trombone to the sky and then plunges it back to the ground in a split second. Up and down the long horn goes while the note he’s suspending spreads far and wide. “I’m into a sort of rarefraction of the sound,” says Lacy. The opposite of compression, rarefaction waves expand with time. (I looked it up.) In terms of Lacy and his trombone, “I expand the instrument in kind of an arc, going up and down and the sound spreads out.” Did I mention that Lacy’s first degree was in physics? When I suggest that this is an innovation, Lacy says, “I’d shy away from the word ‘innovation.’ ‘Unique’ would be the more logical term for it.” Lacy performs Monday evening at the Bop Shop with a band whose name is also unique: 10³²K. 16 CITY NOVEMBER 13-19, 2013
“It’s the Planck temperature at which matter disappears — ceases to exist,” says Lacy. But don’t fear that you will disappear if you attend the concert. “It’s an organic process with the band. We interact in a way where we have form and we don’t have form.” In other words, the trio might begin with the structure of a composition by Albert Ayler or Charles Mingus, tunes featured on the group’s debut album, “That Which Is Planted.” “We use this as a launching point,” says Lacy. “From there we go free, free-form, and free-informed.” The group’s drummer, Andrew Drury, explains further: “The free area is a place to get into a kind of dream time, a zone of deep internal flow where potentially anything is possible. We are very attuned to each other. One guy makes a move and the others are right on it, offering immediate rebuttals, counteroffers, support, jokes, etc. And everyone reacts to those. Without any one person making an executive decision the music takes whatever shape it seems to want to go.” Lacy thrives on the unpredictability of free jazz. In fact, several years ago he took on the name Ku-umba, the Swahili word for “creative.” “Playing with Frank is inspiring and challenging; he’s a stunningly creative guy,” says
bassist Kevin Ray. “When I first heard him with the Mingus Big Band in ’93, I felt that this was a guy playing music the way I want to play music. He has a breadth of knowledge and an attention to detail that’s just mind blowing.” Lacy grew up in Houston in a creative family. His father was a math teacher who played guitar in a style reminiscent of Charlie Christian and Wes Montgomery. In fact, “He and Wes Montgomery did some practicing together,” says Lacy. “I remember one time Wes coming by the house.” His mother is a singer who had an additional talent. “She sings gospel music, but she was such a strong basketball player she would have been in the WNBA if it existed when she was young,” Lacy says. After earning a degree in physics at Texas Southern University Lacy headed for Boston’s Berklee College of Music in 1979 where he encountered a “Who Will Be Who” of future stars. “A lot of us were there at the same time,” says Lacy. “We didn’t know we would be some of the ones who would shape jazz to come. Greg Osby, Jeff Watts, Branford Marsalis, Dave Douglas, Kevin Eubanks, Cindy Blackman, and Wallace Roney were all there.”
Next stop was Rutgers University in Newark, New Jersey, where his classmates included future greats like Steve Nelson, Terence Blanchard, and Ralph Peterson. After graduating, Lacy headed to Europe, where he found an active expatriate community of jazz musicians. “People say jazz is so democratic in America but I don’t know,” says Lacy. “I’m reluctant to give that trophy to America until jazz musicians can tour America like they can Europe.” He lived in a variety of European cities until the Euro became the common currency and the exchange rate got high. Lacy moved back to America, where he fell in with the New York avant-garde scene, playing with Oliver Lake, Henry Threadgill, Julius Hemphill, and Lester Bowie. It was when he started playing with Bobby Watson’s Horizon that he came to the attention of jazz legend Art Blakey, who asked him to join the Jazz Messengers. Lacy served as arranger for Blakey’s band in the late 1980’s. But Blakey’s music was straight-ahead bebop, a far cry from the avantgarde. What did Lacy’s more experimental collaborators think? “They encouraged it,” says Lacy. “They thought it was a good thing that someone from their sphere had the ability to play with Art Blakey. It gave their music credibility in a certain way. I straddle both sides, avant-garde and bebop.” He has continued to crossover. In the 1990’s he played on Roy Hargrove’s “Habana” CD with a Cuban band. The album won a Grammy Award. And he’s occasionally ventured into R&B territory, playing with artists like D’Angelo and Erykah Badu. Lacy plays euphonium, tuba, and frumpet, a darker, flugelhorn-like variation on a trumpet. But his main instrument remains the sometimes under-appreciated trombone. “The trombone isn’t as popular an instrument as the piano, guitar, or tenor saxophone, but it’s kind of a shame because some of the greatest arrangers were trombone players: Slide Hampton, JJ Johnson, Bob Brookmeyer,” Lacy says. “Trombonists have a special ear for arranging music because they sit in the center of the big band.” But Lacy doesn’t waste time bemoaning a lack of respect. He’s had an unforgettable life because of music. And he’s seen the importance of improvisation in more than music. “Playing with Threadgill, Blakey, and Bowie, I traveled a lot of places. I went to Eastern Europe before the Berlin Wall fell. I remember going through Check Point Charlie. I was invited to come to a family’s house in Romania when Ceausescu was in power. The state would cut off the electricity at a certain time of night, but with candles they were able to create a lot of light in the house.”

POP/ROCK | EDDIE SPAGHETTI
Growing up in Tucson, Eddie Spaghetti did everything he could to shield himself from the country twang which surrounded him. In 1988, heavily influenced by punk and metal, he helped form the widely influential, incomparable garage rock outfit, The Supersuckers. The following year the band found itself in Seattle, and part of a burgeoning underground music scene that would soon become the nexus of the rock and roll universe. But, despite Spaghetti’s immersion in grunge city, the music of his childhood eventually made its way back into the catalog. The Supersuckers have recorded with the likes of Willie Nelson and Steve Earle while releasing a cowpunk album of its own. And, Eddie’s first solo album, this year’s “The Value of Nothing”, is wrought with the raw honesty of down-home country rock and the in-your-face, gut-wrenching power of punk and metal. The songs are unlike anything you’ve heard before. I guarantee it.

ALTERNATIVE | HERZOG
What would “sunshine” pop sound like if it grew up on the west side of Cleveland, informed by the bitter winds of Lake Erie? Simple: Herzog. Nick Tolar and company’s mesmerizing power pop is driven by extremely well-crafted melodies echoed by chugging, warped guitars. The songs are colorful and urgent, bright with their moments of bloodthirsty. It’s Brian Wilson alone in a garage with a copy of “In Utero” and a fuzz pedal. It’s wonderful and quite paradoxical; slacker rock with a purpose. Herzog performs Thursday, November 14, 8:30 p.m., at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave., $6-$8, bugjar.com. — BY DAVID YOCKEL, JR.

Rootsy rocker Stephen Kellogg has 86’d his band The Sixers but soldiers on regardless. His newest foray into songwriter fame is an epic stab at Thanksgiving with his opus “Thanksgiving.” The tune brings to mind another extrapolated seasonal tradition, Arlo Guthrie’s 1967 round-a-bout look at the war in Vietnam, “Alice’s Restaurant.” Timely, huh? I mean there’s still a war going on, right?

Art signature, as they are sometimes the ones to paint these backdrops and other murals in the common areas. Another photo features an armored knight on horseback in a checkerfloored court, pointing a lance at the viewer. I found myself comparing them to the equally cheesy, fanciful backdrops used for family portraits at mall photo studios, where mundane reality is replaced with grasps at dramatic nature or absurd fantasy. Emdur framed her portraits of the backdrops with their surroundings: the cold linoleum, cinder blocks, barred windows, and harsh lighting of the true prison environment. In any actual portraits taken with these backdrops, there would be no traces of the context; here, they are revealed. I wonder if any prisoners shun the fantasy, and request the bare rooms for a backdrop. If so, are they granted their request? The use of these backdrops belies a strange covenant created between prisoner and prison to deliberately obscure the environment of the facility.

Without the few wall-mounted paragraphs, which provide minimal information about each of the artists and their corresponding projects featured in the show, the current exhibit at Visual Studies Workshop would merely be a collection of baffling pictures unattached to meaning, an almost alien encounter. “Of the Ordinary” is made up of photographic imagery, largely unshackled from its own contexts; images never intended to be experienced in the context of a gallery. Here, seven contemporary archivist-artists 22 CITY NOVEMBER 13-19, 2013
blur and transgress the boundaries of public and private, revealing what was once hidden and concealing what was seemingly plain. Stripped of most contexts, these appropriated images raise that persistent question of whether a photograph can accurately represent reality — much less convey an accurate story — without a linguistic explanation of the circumstances. The only images in the show that retain their own context are found in Alyse Emdur’s “Prison Landscapes,” which represent some of Emdur’s documentation of backdrops used for pop-up portrait studios for prisoners and their visitors. In one photograph, we seem to be peering through manor walls to a sunny pond scene, with a stone-domed and -pillared gazebo on an outcropping of green land. An actual backdrop is present in the gallery: a mammoth painting of a waterfall and woods, signed “Van ’10,” which may be a prisoner’s
Ofer Wolberger’s larger-than-life scans of books hail from his “Photographic Book Project,” in which he explores injuries as well as casts and other apparatuses used to support the human body as it recovers from trauma. With only titles and a few stamped images on the five jacket-less, cloth-bound book covers, we must make our own associations regarding the frayed edges of these overlooked surfaces, now intimately naked and nuanced. I found Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin’s “People in Trouble, Laughing, Pushed to the Ground,” to be among the most tricky to tackle. The duo drew the images in this series from The Belfast Exposed Archive, which was founded in 1983 “as a response to the concern over the careful control of images depicting British military activity in the 1970’s and 80’s in Belfast, Ireland,” per the provided information. Once included in the archive, circular stickers were placed over faces, hands raised at a rally, a swarm of balloons, and a vehicle spurting flames. Present here are the circular images that were formerly blocked off, but removed from context of the greater image, their significance remains in obscurity. The archivists know more than we do, but they aren’t talking. Similarly, Ron Jude’s archive of contextless images teases and baffles. The shots are drawn from the Alpine Star, a local newspaper in central Idaho, but without the accompanying stories, the history of a community is reduced to ordinary images, hinting at silliness and dire situations, or entirely impenetrable.

24 CITY NOVEMBER 13-19, 2013
itch of piecing back together the meanings behind Broomberg/Chanarin and Jude’s image collections is at first greater than the desire to examine how the images stand alone, or what story they may collectively tell. In the winter of 1958, Charles Starkweather
and 14-year-old Caril Ann Fugate murdered 10 people, including Fugate’s family, over a three-day period across the state of Nebraska. This is the tragic series of events that inspired Christian Patterson’s “Redheaded Peckerwood” project and book of the same name. Patterson’s archive reads like a deliberate dream state, like walking through the fragmented memories of the incidents themselves, held captive in photographic evidence sourced from the case file, or recreated in scenes staged by Patterson, and in images of pure allusion, pointing toward the places the story guided the artist’s imagination. But Patterson stops short of specifying which are which, though some are easier to detect than others. “I’m interested in history, and whether it can poke through to the present,” Patterson said in an interview with City earlier this month. He says he feels the life contained within the images and objects he’s collected, “charged with the lingering presence” of the events. Though many of the images in the show are quite engaging, a centrally situated, glass-topped case of packages and envelopes tugs at the viewer’s attention like a black hole. Jason Lazarus put out a call for people to send him images that are “Too Hard to Keep” for a project of the same name. After the exhibition, the packages will travel to Chicago, where they will be opened, sorted, and filed among the thousands of others that have amassed over the past three years. I wonder about this small anti-exhibit, still sealed within these few parcels, silently waiting to join a new family of condemned memories. What has been given up, sliced voluntarily from its origins, and why? Do the packages contain letters, explaining stories behind the photographs? It is easy to see how such a project could take on the nature of a confessional. One image used to advertize this opportunity to part with pain is of a seemingly battered young woman with deep bruises, with steely wariness in her blackened eyes. It is not likely that all of the submitted images will be as extreme, as dramatic. Some will seem mundane, yet bear the burden of private significance.

KIDS | ROCHESTER CHILDREN’S BOOK FESTIVAL/ IN ANOTHER GALAXY WEEKEND
Books can catapult your imagination to otherwise unreachable heights, and make you smarter in the process. As Dr. Seuss put it, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” This Saturday, November 16, do your child a favor and bring him or her to the 17th Annual Rochester Children’s Book Festival at Monroe Community College (1000 E. Henrietta Road). With books to browse and children’s authors on hand, there’s no better way to show your kid the wonderful world of books. The festival runs 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Go to rochesterchildrensbookfestival.com for more info. Another thing I couldn’t have lived without during my youth was “Star Wars.” Heck, I still can’t. Kids will have another fun opportunity as the National Museum of Play (1 Manhattan Square Drive) is holding In Another Galaxy Weekend this Saturday and Sunday, November 16 and 17. Kids will have the chance to meet members of the 501st Legion (Darth Vader’s first), the Rebel Legion, and see robots built by the R2-D2 Builders Club, among other things. Dressing up as your favorite science-fiction movie character is encouraged. In Another Galaxy Weekend is included with general admission. The event runs Saturday 11 a.m.-4 p.m., and Sunday 1-4 p.m. Call 263-2700 or visit museumofplay.org for more info. — BY TREVOR LEWIS Ann Bavis, Ruthie Cummings, Nancy Radzik, and Nicole Rogers.

If watching “Dancing with the Stars” is your idea of taking in a dance performance, I’m here to tell you there are much better ways to get your dance fix. There are two live acts coming to Rochester this Friday, November 15, to open your eyes to the possibilities of the artform. The first act is world-renowned, award-winning Shanghai Ballet, which will perform at Nazareth College Arts Center (4245 East Ave.). With a wide-ranging repertoire that includes classical ballet, Chinese ballet, and contemporary dance, Shanghai Ballet doesn’t need any words to communicate a whole story to its audiences. This will be evident when you watch the dancers perform “The Butterfly Lovers” (pictured) on Friday. The show begins at 8 p.m., with a pre-dance lecture at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $50-$65. Call 389-2170 for more info or visit artscenter.naz.edu. The other act, Galumpha Dance, goes in a bit of a different direction, as it is a company of acrobats who use physical comedy and inventive choreography to create a show that’s as impressive as it is funny. Galumpha takes the stage Friday at 7:30 p.m. at Stuart Steiner Theatre at Genesee Community College (1 College Road, Batavia), and tickets range from $5 to $10. Contact the GCC box office for more info by calling 343-0055, ext. 6814 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. — BY TREVOR LEWIS

SPORTS | ROLLER DERBY/AMERKS HOCKEY
Being a mega-fan of baseball, I’m saddened every year once the season’s over, because that means the days of enjoying live sports outside are pretty much over for the year. There’s nothing like sitting outside in the summer weather watching the Red Wings play while eating a Zweigle’s and drinking a Rohrbach. Sure, you can go catch a Bills game at the Ralph, but cold weather and overpriced tickets make watching from your couch a better experience. If you’re like me and can’t put up with the weather, there are still some exciting sports to take in, and the good news is they take place indoors. Head to the Dome Arena (2695 E. Henrietta Road) this Saturday, November 16, to watch the Roc City Roller Derby league as three teams — the Rottenchesters, 5-H8-5s, and the Midtown Maulers — compete in a round-robin-style tournament. Doors open at 5 p.m. and the action begins at 6 p.m., with tickets going for $5-$20. Check out rocderby.com for more information. If you’re unable to make it to a Sabres game this season, why not catch the future Sabres by going to see an Amerks game? The team’s next home game will be Wednesday, November 20, at 7:05 p.m. when they take on the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins at the Blue Cross Arena (1 War Memorial Square). Ticket prices range from $25.40-$29.40. Visit amerks.com for more info. — BY TREVOR LEWIS

LECTURE | COLUM MCCANN
To award-winning Irish author Colum McCann, being a small part of humanity’s long storytelling legacy is a privilege, and the only thing that can trump life itself. “I love the fact that our stories can cross all sorts of borders and boundaries,” the author said in a recent interview. His works of fiction have done just this, holding a lens to various topics of crisis and culture clashes around the world, including homeless people in the subway tunnels of New York, the Troubles in Northern Ireland, the effects of 9/11, and the life and culture of the Roma in Europe. McCann received the National Book Award for his novel, “Let the Great World Spin.” McCann will visit Rochester this week, to speak as part of this season’s Arts & Lectures Uncommon Voices Series, on Thursday, November 14. The event will be held at Downtown United Presbyterian Church (121 N. Fitzhugh St.), at 7:30 p.m. Standing-room-only tickets will be sold for $15 on a first-come, first-served basis, beginning at 6:45 p.m. For more information visit artsandlectures.org. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY Fight for Air Climbs. 9 a.m. One Bausch and Lomb Place. $15$50 666-1402.

THEATER | “EXIT, PURSUED BY A BEAR”
Sometimes just the title of a play is enough to intrigue you into snapping up a ticket. How can you not want to see what happens when “Exit, Pursued by a Bear” plays Thursday, November 14, through Sunday, November 17, at MuCCC (142 Atlantic Ave.). The description of Lauren Gunderson’s play on the MuCCC website is as follows: “A contemporary Southern revenge comedy that disarms stereotypes of abuse with wild humor.” The play concerns Nan, who turns the tables on her abusive husband, Kyle, after years of putting up with it. Presumably a bear is involved, as well as exiting. This performance by the Lady Parts troupe features wellregarded local actors Carl del Buono, Erin-Kate Howard, Marcy J. Savastano, and Kevin Sean Sweeney. Show times are at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets cost $10-$15, and more info can be had by calling 244-0960 or going to muccc.org. — BY TREVOR LEWIS Neighbor Next Door: Living with Alzheimer’s Early Stage, Part III. 6:30 p.m. Seymour Library, 161 East Ave., Brockport Free. 6371050. seymourlibraryweb.org.

An American story “12 Years a Slave”
Based on a true account, the memoir of Solomon Northup, a free black man living (R), DIRECTED BY STEVEN MCQUEEN in Saratoga, New York, in 1844, the picture NOW PLAYING chronicles a not-uncommon practice that continued until the end of the Civil War. A [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA respectable citizen, perfectly integrated into the community, Solomon (Chiwetel Ejiofor) One of the most important movies to appear in plays the violin, earning enough to support the current season, “12 Years a Slave” provides his wife and two children.

him with a group of slaves down the river to Louisiana, where he discovers the terrible reality of his situation in a variety of environments. Aside from the constant brutality, he witnesses the breaking up of families, children taken from their mothers to be sold as valuable investments, the absolute power that white slave owners enjoy over their property, what happens when a man believes he has the right to own another human being. Sold to a relatively enlightened master (Benedict Cumberbatch), Solomon works with his fellow slaves at the hard labor of lumbering, harvesting sugar cane, and picking cotton. His skill with the fiddle occasionally allows him to enjoy a few moments of respite from his work, but also increases his despair; witnessing the freedom and luxury of the plantation owners reminds him of the life he lost. He suffers a great deal more pain when his owner must sell him to a psychotic plantation owner, Edwin Epps (Michael Fassbender), who sleeps with some of the women he owns and orders vicious whippings for what he perceives as disobedience or laziness. Constantly attempting to escape or communicate with people in Saratoga, Solomon finds himself betrayed at every turn by those he believed would help him. After the long and terrible saga of his suffering, his salvation, when it comes, seems almost anticlimactic. Aside from the obvious horrors of the peculiar institution, the picture shows some

Chain lightning “Thor: The Dark World” (PG-13), DIRECTED BY ALAN TAYLOR NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
of the deeper complexities that slavery created in Southern society. The various financial transactions involving the slaves reveal something of the precarious and complicated economic structure of a culture based on a single crop needing enormous amounts of cheap labor. More important, it illustrates all over again the truth of William Faulkner’s perception that slavery not only brutalizes and demeans its victims but also debases and corrupts the owners, that owning a human being robs the owner of his humanity. “12 Years a Slave” runs a bit too long, mostly because the director, Steve McQueen, repeats himself needlessly and often holds his shots after they achieve their meaning, thus occasionally weakening some of his strongest moments. In several painful scenes he shows unflinchingly the bloody violence, the sheer sadistic brutality of some of the punishment the slaves must suffer, and the special cruelty of a master forcing one slave to whip another. The picture serves an instructive function in our time, not only for its portrayal of the horrors of slavery in the 19th century, but also as the source for some contemporary phenomena. It explains the hatred of Barack Obama in all sectors of the right wing, the “birther” theories of preposterous fools like Donald Trump, the pictures of the President of the United States with a bone through his nose, and the sickening image of conservatives waving the Confederate flag outside the White House.
The latest chapter in Marvel Studios’ everexpanding big-screen universe, “Thor: The Dark World” picks up not long after the events of 2012’s “The Avengers” to check in on the continuing adventures of the heroic Norse god. Much like how “Iron Man 3” found Tony Stark in a darker place, suffering from PTSD after his near-death experience, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is feeling a little glum because he really misses his girlfriend, astrophysicist Jane Foster (Natalie Portman). He’s back in Asgard, keeping the peace between the nine realms with the support of his merry band of warrior friends, the rather unimaginatively named Warriors Three. Back on Earth, Jane has attempted to move on with her life, but is still searching for signs of Thor’s return. While investigating some bizarre anomalies in the fabric of space and time, Jane discovers and inadvertently absorbs an alien energy/ deadly weapon known as the Aether, which was used thousands of years prior by dark elf Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) in a plot to plunge the universe into

darkness when the nine realms aligned, in a rare event known as the Convergence. The reemergence of the Aether reawakens Malekith, who immediately sets out to do what he had failed achieve all those years ago. And damn the luck, the Convergence is about to happen once again. Thor learns of Jane’s infection with the Aether and brings her back to Asgard in the hopes of extracting the force before it kills her, as well as keeping it out of Malekith’s hands. Of course, Thor’s plan to destroy the Aether and defeat Malekith eventually requires him to partner up with his brother, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), who has been imprisoned on Asgard in response to his evil deeds in the Avengers film. That’s an incredible amount of plot crammed into a film in which most of it ultimately doesn’t matter. What audiences have really come to see are the interactions between the characters they’ve come to love throughout the course of the previous Marvel films, and in that regard, “Thor: The Dark World” is a huge success. As with “Thor,” the executives at Marvel Studios have shrewdly chosen a director who is most comfortable working with the overly theatrical setting of Asgard. Kenneth Branagh, who directed the first film, had a background in Shakespeare, while this film’s director, Alan Taylor, is a veteran of HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” In his hands, Asgard feels like a real, lived-in place, and the scenes that take place there are among the film’s most successful. Despite working with a plot that’s significantly less streamlined than the original’s tale of brotherly jealousy and betrayal, Taylor manages to find a balance between complicated story and huge number of characters while delivering a number of satisfying and exciting action set pieces. He develops the worlds that were introduced in “Thor” in new and exciting ways. I also appreciated the screenwriters’ (Christopher Yost, Christopher Markus, and Stephen McFeely) decision to
maintain the goofy sense of humor that was established in the first film; “Thor: The Dark World” is a far funnier film than I had any reason to expect. Hemsworth still makes for a hugely appealing hero, but after learning the value of humility in the first film, I found myself missing Thor’s cocky swagger this time around. I understand why it had to happen, but without it he loses a bit of his distinctive personality and starts to fall into that more traditional brand of stoic heroism. Hemsworth and Hiddleston are great together, and the scenes where Thor and Loki verbally spar with one another are all fantastic. Portman is also quite good; likeable and charming, but most impressively, makes for a fairly convincing scientist. Taylor does a good job of allowing most of the actors to have their moment, aside from Eccleston, who is buried under pounds of makeup. Unfortunately, Malekith isn’t much a character, a problem that has plagued just about all of the Marvel’s film villains aside from Loki. It’s pleasing to note that the film boasts four unique female characters, giving it the rare distinction of being a superhero film that can actually pass the Bechdel Test. Aside from Portman, Kat Dennings’ scenestealing Darcy returns, as well as Jaimie Alexander’s Lady Sif. Thor’s mother, Frigga (Rene Russo), even gets something to do, demonstrating that she’s just as much of a warrior as the men in her family. “Thor: The Dark World” ends on as much of a cliffhanger as we’ve had yet from the Marvel films (though with films’ increasing interconnectedness, we’ll likely be getting that more and more), leaving little doubt that we’ll be returning to Asgard soon enough. Thankfully, as long as the next film continues to be as entertaining as the first two, I won’t mind returning to that world.

Expansive Rooms and Views 100 Lakecrest Avenue This attractive and well-maintained home is located at the quiet end of Lakecrest Avenue, a residential street that runs east off of Lake Avenue in Charlotte, just north of the Charlotte Library located at the corner of Lake and Britton. The street ends at River Heights, a short road that parallels the Genesee River and features spectacular views of the river and its wooded banks at Turning Point Park. The 1,662 square foot house was built in the 1930s in the Colonial Revival style, a popular mode throughout the first half of the 20th century. The symmetrical faĂ§ade features triple windows flanking the center entrance on the first floor, with paired windows above on the second floor. The colonnaded front entrance porch is reached by a curving brick walk. Inside is a small vestibule with a tiled floor and a door with leaded glass that opens into the front hall. One immediately notices the warm gumwood used on the doors, window and door trim and the staircase newel post and bannister. Among the many recent upgrades to the house are the laminate floors on the first floor that replicate wide wood floor boards. To the right of the hall is an expansive living room that includes an alcove that was likely once a sunroom now incorporated into the room. A brick wood-burning fireplace is crowned by a heavy, bracketed wood mantel that wraps around the chimney wall and becomes the top shelf for the flanking built-in bookcases with leaded-glass doors. Above the cabinets are handsome leaded glass windows.
To the left of the front hall is the dining room, which contains a built-in corner cabinet. The large kitchen has been completely remodeled with cherry cabinets and a wonderful porcelain double sink. The eating area at the far end overlooks the backyard patio, the wood-fenced yard lined with perennial beds, and the one-car garage. The second floor features original hardwood floors, gumwood doors with glass knobs, a laundry chute, and plenty of closet space in each of the three bedrooms. The large master bedroom contains two closets, each with a leaded-glass window. The upgraded bathroom has its original tiled walls and built-in gumwood linen cupboard and drawers, and a new tiled bath and shower. A door and staircase lead to the partiallyfinished attic space. The Charlotte community offers a number of desirable amenities, the most obvious are its natural resourcesâ€”Lake Ontario and the Genesee River. The 16-mile Genesee Riverway Trail runs through Turning Point Park on its way from Rochester to Ontario Beach Park and the Charlotte village with its varied shops and restaurants. This very special property is offered at $108,900. Contact Ginny Hronek (585-241-3020) at Nothnagle Realtors. by Ann Parks Ann is a Landmark Society volunteer.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD
— “For Japanese boys, the train driver sits alongside footballer, doctor and policeman as a dream job,” according to a September Agence France-Presse dispatch, and consequently, the system for the Tokyo metro area (covering 35 million people) runs with the “precision of a finely crafted Swiss watch,” where delays, even for as long as a minute, seldom occur. (When they do occur, operators repeatedly apologize and hand out “notes from home” to commuters to present to their bosses to excuse the tardiness.) Among the system’s drawbacks is the still-irksome groping of females on packed rush-hour trains, when operators routinely shove as many as 300 riders into cars designed for 150. — Among the surprising legacies of the oppressions of communist East Germany is modern-day Germany’s commonplace “clothing-optional” lifestyle (FKK, or “Freikoerperkultur” -free body culture). A September Global Post dispatch counted “hundreds” of FKK beaches across the country and referenced a turned-up snapshot (not yet authenticated) of a young Angela Merkel frolicking nude in the 1960s or 1970s. Foreigners occasionally undergo culture shock at German hotels’ saunas and swimming pools, at which swimsuits are discouraged (as “unhygienic”). — In December China joined only a handful of countries (and 29 U.S. states) by strengthening the rights of elderly parents to demand support from their adult children -- not only financially (which has been the law for more than a decade) but now allowing lawsuits by parents who feel emotionally ignored, as well. An October Associated Press feature on one rural extended
family dramatized China’s cultural shift away from its proverbial “first virtue” of family honor. Zhang Zefang, 94, said she did not even understand the concept of “lawsuit” when a local official explained it, but only that she deserved better from the children she had raised and who now allegedly resent her neediness. (A village court promptly ordered several family members to contribute support for Zhang.)
Questionable Judgments — Los Angeles Animal Services has
proposed that the city be established as a Sanctuary City of Feral Cats and that cats should be an exception to property owners’ right to evict animals causing damage. Under the L.A. City Feral Cat Program, reported OpposingViews.com, felines “will gain an inherent right” to be on residential or commercial property. Animal Services believes that an enhanced spaying program will eliminate most feral-cat problems, including somehow their toileting excesses and their killing of neighborhood songbirds. — “You hired a convicted prostitute and thief to handle state money?” asked an incredulous Connecticut state legislator in September when he learned that Suki Handly had been employed from 2008 to 2012 passing out welfare benefits in the state’s Manchester distribution center and that $44,000 was missing. Furthermore, Handly and two others had been found guilty of theft in Connecticut in 2010, yet word of her prostitution and 2010 convictions were not known to state investigators until a chance audit in 2012. (State hiring offices of course promised to strengthen background checks.)
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 37 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your restless nature will get you into trouble when it comes to love and romance. Fickle and fancy-free, you are likely to meet partners with little to offer. Go out and have fun, but don’t take anyone with mega-promises too seriously. Bide your time. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll attract plenty of interest, but before you think about letting anyone take hold of your heart, give him or her the third degree. As favorable and inviting as someone might be, the baggage that tags along with most partners you meet won’t be worth the aggravation.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Motives are likely to be all mixed and emotional. Before you make a move on someone you fancy, question if you are ready to indulge in a fullfledged relationship. If you aren’t sure, opt for a friendship, nothing more. Don’t ruin a chance at love because you aren’t quite ready. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You won’t have trouble in the romance department unless you get involved with more than one person. You may have the opportunity, but you will end up losing someone special if you don’t play fair. Pick and stick to the partner best suited to you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You are meant to party and have fun, not settle down right now. Enjoy your freedom and keep things open and honest. As long as you don’t renege on a promise and you are fair in your personal dealings, you may as well enjoy the company of whomever you please. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Go for practical and nurturing, and, of course, a little chemistry thrown into the mix. You’ll have plenty of choice, so do your due diligence and be sure to pick the partner best suited to you, not the one trying to be what you want.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Just when you think you’ve found true love, you are likely to second-guess your choice. Avoid embarrassment by keeping all your relationships out in the open until you are ready to make a choice. The partner willing to indulge you while you make up your mind is a keeper. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’ve got the moves and will grab positive attention from serious contenders. Your passionate body language will be difficult for anyone you pursue to resist. Make your move, and before you know it, you will be in love and on the road to commitment.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You know what you want, but you’ll attract someone possessive and clingy. Before you think about going down that path, consider how difficult it will be to get the freedom you need in a relationship in order to be happy. Look for someone as easygoing as you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You know what you want and where to find it, but your emotions will lead you astray. Wanting excitement and desiring the chase will not end in satisfaction or happiness. Love is there for the taking, but your choices are likely to be misguided.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You need a change of pace and a pick-me-up that will boost your ego and bring you back into the game of love. For now, you must only dabble if you want to avoid being consumed by someone overbearing and controlling. It’s time to experiment, not make a commitment. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Take your position and make your offer firm. When it comes to love, your negotiating skills are masterful, and you can dazzle and charm whoever brings you the rush you are searching for. There are plenty to choose from, but only one that will fit just right.
