Food trucks seek their space Though chuck wagons are by no means a new way of grubbing up, sometime in 2008 the modern breed of food trucks rolling around New York and Los Angeles began garnering oodles of attention thanks to inspired menus and a canny mastery of social networking that enabled them to attract ravenous throngs with a mere tweet. Then the media chimed in with reality-TV shows and breathless articles about innovative chefs creating their own opportunities outside the restaurant realm.
After the phenomenal success of this year’s two Food Truck Rodeos at the Rochester Public Market — the October installment boasted the participation of more than a dozen of these wheeled meal dealies — at this point it’s fair to say Rochester officially has a scene. The popularity of local food trucks is no longer in question. The major issue now, for both food-truck owners and City of Rochester officials, is defining locations where the trucks can do business.

Give students a voice
We are MAD, Making a Difference, a youth group of Rochester School District high school students. We are not lab rats. We’d like the school district to stop trying new ideas on us. We understand that there are needs for improvement but wish they were not thrown at us all at once. This year, when some schools were closed or reorganized, many of us were forced to change schools, take a different bus, learn new scheduling, and meet new faculty. Some of us were taken out of our comfort zone. After years of becoming familiar with the students and staff of our high schools, we had to start over and build new relationships. For future reference, we feel we should have a say before decisions to close or change our schools are finalized. Since these decisions affect us, we wish the district could take the time to ask how we feel. Here are some questions district officials should consider: What do students need? What are students interested in? How do students feel about our school’s neighborhood? How do students like the food? Do students feel safe? Do students have a voice when it comes to education? We hope the district tries to understand our perspective before making any future changes. REBECCA PEREZ, SHEARLY MADERA, BIANCA MARTINEZ, JUANITA VALAZQUEZ, ROCHESTER

The fights downtown
As much as I agree with sending students to schools within their neighborhoods, I don’t understand how it can happen when a number of students come from nomadic households (“Fights Return to Downtown,” News Blog). A student may live on Genesee Street at the City

start of the school year but by the end of the school year he/she has had three different addresses in three different zip codes within the city. As for mass numbers of students downtown and the fights that take place because of it, maybe the district should go back to busing students back to their neighborhoods on school busses instead of using RTS. I also say that many students fight downtown because they believe they can get away with it. If the district would begin deploying school officials who know the students to the downtown area during these student transitions, the students will be less likely to fight because they can be identified.

Fixing the US voting system
I agree with the strategy to change the US Constitution to defang rampant corporate abuse of power (“America for Sale,” News). But I would go further and bring the US voting process and technology into the 21st century. For the same reason that we have federal standards for our national highway and railway systems, our nation can and must nationalize its voting system. Like 32 other democracies in the world, the USA can “mandate” that its citizens exercise their democratic right to vote. Remember the no-smoking mandates and seatbelt mandates that we thought could never happen here? Until they did, and saved many lives. To eliminate waiting lines, the voting process must be re-engineered as an on-line application, like what the DMV and IRS provide to citizens today. Models of efficient on-line voting systems can be found in the Netherlands, Australia, and Canada. The net effect of a more efficient voting system will be to eliminate the need for exorbitant tax-dollar funding, volunteers, and voters’ time required to exercise our voting obligation. And it virtually guarantees that every citizen has an opportunity to vote; no more excuses. It also eliminates the lure of partisan politicians and vendors to “game” the system. Is this “mandate” too draconian for American sensibilities? Consider that the bi-annual Rube Goldberg system that hobbles US voters today is exponentially
more draconian. We can shed this albatross before we are forced to endure one more election debacle. JOHN JONGEN

Politics and transit
I had the opportunity to visit two upstate train stations this past year, one in Utica and the other in Syracuse (“Runaway Train Station?” News). The Utica station is a beautiful, old-school station reminiscent of Grand Central. It even has pillars saved from the Grand Central renovation. It’s located in the heart of downtown and is a cornerstone in the community and serves both bus and rail passengers. The Syracuse station is located at the Syracuse Regional Transportation Station, a brand new, modern intermodal facility. It is nestled next to the rail line and Route 81 near the regional market, baseball stadium, and Carousel Mall, which makes it very accessible to the community. There are ample parking and services, and it too serves both bus and rail passengers. Years of squabbling over Renaissance Square, a project that never made sense, held Rochester back for a long time when it comes to a bus terminal. Once Renaissance Square was rightfully tabled, the RTS Transit Center on Mortimer Street came into play, even when Louise Slaughter and Tom Richards were calling for a intermodal station a half-mile away that would serve both bus and rail passengers. How, as a community, did we let this happen? Partisan politics and lack of vision by some of our leaders and RGRTA seems to be the answer. We need to get beyond the politics and do what is right for the community. I hope it’s not to late for a Rochester Intermodal Station. While Mayor Richards is right in backing the intermodal station, he’s part of the problem when it comes to moving forward with MCC moving to State Street, where there is plenty of parking and space to grow, not to mention the boost it would give to the High Falls. I hope we can get beyond the politics and squabbling and drop the notion that MCC belongs in the Sibley Building. It’s time to move forward and not repeat the mistakes of Renaissance Square.

The next four years The 2012 election provided plenty of reasons to celebrate, Barack Obama’s re-election only one of them. A record number of women in the Senate. The first openly gay Senator. A House of Representatives with more Latinos, more Asian-Americans, three new openly gay members…. Also worth celebrating: the stunning dedication of voters, some of whom stood in line for six hours – until 1 o’clock in the morning – continuing to stand and wait even though the election’s outcome was clear. In areas hit by Hurricane Sandy, storm-traumatized people found their way to makeshift voting precincts and voted. By candlelight. Wonderful, wonderful stuff. But the election also left some very troublesome debris. Among the problems: the amount of money spent on campaigns. It’s a hoot that the efforts of Karl Rove, Sheldon Adelson, and the like bore so little fruit. But that’s in part because Democrats and their supporters spent plenty of money themselves. The money that went into campaign advertising was unconscionable, and there’s little reason to hope for change. Second: this was the ugliest campaign I can remember. We might dismiss the pronouncements of people like Donald Trump, but Mitt Romney’s lies weren’t coming from the fringe. Nor, locally, were the direct-mail pieces aimed at Democrat Ted O’Brien, painting a decent, honorable man as siding with people who sexually abuse women and children. But a third problem may be more serious, and will be harder to overcome: that is the deep, deep division in the country. The scene captured by television cameras at the Romney and Obama Election Night rallies in Boston and Chicago said it all. The Romney supporters were almost exclusively middle-aged and older. And white. The people cheering and crying in McCormick Center in Chicago were young, old, black, Hispanic, Asian, white…. This, of course, is how the vote broke. America is a multi-racial, multi-cultural nation – in some places. The red-blue voter map seems to get more startling with each new election. With a few exceptions, the blue states flank the shores of the Atlantic (north of the Mason-Dixon line) and Pacific Oceans. Except for the Midwestern cities, the vast expanse of the interior and southern United States is heavily red. And even in solidly blue states like New York, get very far out from the cities and you’re in red country. We are a nation at once diverse and segregated, a nation that both prides itself on
We are a nation at once diverse and segregated, a nation that both prides itself on its melting-potted nature and fears it.” its melting-potted nature and fears it. This is not new, nor is the outright hatred that some Americans feel for others. But it is a serious problem, and it will make it more difficult for the president and Congress to face the enormous challenges that are ahead. Wealth disparity, infrastructure decay, education, climate change, energy, health care: a divided nation can’t deal successfully with these. Shortly after midnight on Election Night, columnist Eugene Robinson, an African American, posted this on the Washington Post website: “The GOP and Mitt Romney ran a campaign designed to capture a huge share of a shrinking segment of the electorate: white men. Sorry to be so blunt, but that’s the demographic Republicans tried to capture, with their incessant talk of ‘taking the country back’ and their long-running attempt to portray Obama as somehow alien and threatening.” “Note to the GOP: It’s our country, too,” Robinson wrote. “And no, you can’t have it back. We all have to share.” There ought to be a way to reach all but the most extreme in this divided nation. We ought to be able to celebrate our diversity rather than fear it. But the divisions we saw in the 2012 election campaign, and the intractableness we’re seeing among House conservatives in these early post-election days, show us how tough it will be to move forward. If Barack Obama can pull most of us together, if he can use his immense oratorical skills to point the way to common ground, it could be an accomplishment that dwarfs anything else he does in eight years.

Carpenter gets Water Authority job
The Monroe County Water Authority board appointed Pittsford Supervisor Bill Carpenter as deputy executive director, with a $137,000 annual salary. The Republican Carpenter will resign as supervisor, a position he’s held since 1994. Critics say Carpenter’s appointment is another example of patronage in Monroe County.
City to start land bank
City Council was expected to approve legislation Tuesday night to establish a land bank. The entities are meant to help governments address vacant properties. But to establish the land bank, the city has to file an application with the state, and that deadline is November 30. The application requires a copy of the local law establishing the land bank.
Windstream’s profits drop
Windstream Corporation, the company that purchased Perinton-based Paetec Holding Corporation in 2011, caught financial analysts’ attention when its stock value dropped. The drop was due to a weaker end-of-
year forecast from Windstream CEO Jeff Gardner, who told the Wall Street Journal that the company’s profitability will be about 1 percent less than originally forecast. A new Windstream facility is supposed to open in the old Midtown site in downtown Rochester sometime next year.
Kodak deals with bondholders
NEIGHBORHOODS | BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN
Eastman Kodak has reached a $793 million deal with bondholders that could keep the company alive. According to the Wall Street Journal, Kodak needs to sell $500 million in patents to ensure the company gets the financing it needs to emerge from bankruptcy.
The plan is in its infancy, but City of Rochester officials may take a program designed to increase owner-occupied housing downtown and replicate it in the city’s neighborhoods. Which neighborhoods, when, and exactly how the program would work are still open questions.
Fire chief chosen
Rochester has a new fire chief. Salvatore Mitrano III replaces former chief John Caufield, who left earlier this year to take a position outside the city. Mitrano, who has been with the Rochester Fire Department since 1987, has been the city’s interim chief since March. His annual salary is $126,584. Mitrano takes over a department of 476 uniformed and 23 civilian personnel, with a $42 million annual operating budget.

“There are no decisions, just ideas at this point,” says Bret Garwood, the city’s director of business and housing development. “We’re still just talking about it.” The Core Housing Owner Incentive Exemption offers propertytax exemptions for the creation of market-rate owner-occupied housing in the downtown area. The exemption applies to increases in property value. If you make improvements that increase the value of your home, the subsequent increase in your tax bill is phased in over a 10-year period. The CHOICE program also applies to units converted from other uses to owner occupancy. Garwood says CHOICE encourages developers to build more owneroccupied units, and makes the housing more affordable. Homeowners are typically more invested in their
properties and their communities than renters, officials say, and can help stabilize troubled neighborhoods. A logical place to replicate the CHOICE program may be in one or more of the city’s four Focused Investment neighborhoods, Garwood says: Beechwood, Dewey-Driving Park, Jefferson, or Marketview Heights. The city has singled out these areas for intense investment. All four areas have a high percentage of rentals, and the FIS plans for each include increasing owner occupancy. “I think it makes sense to do it where there are opportunities to create owner-occupancy units where they don’t exist now,” Garwood says. The CHOICE program helped the Capron Street Lofts conversion, he says, as well as the construction of North Plymouth Terrace at North Plymouth Avenue and West Main Street.
Maggie Brooks made tactical errors. She delayed talking about national issues — some would say she never did address them satisfactorily — choosing instead to run on her record as county executive. She seemed to think that her considerable star power combined with the public’s disgust with Congress would propel her to victory.

POLITICS | BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN
Presidential election boosts local candidates Local political observers say they’re not surprised that incumbent Democrat Louise Slaughter beat Republican Maggie Brooks, the Monroe County executive, in their Congressional contest. But they are surprised, they say, by Slaughter’s margin of victory. According to unofficial results from the Monroe County Board of Elections, Slaughter bested Brooks by about 15 percentage points, 166,342 votes to 124,585 votes. The final poll in the race, released less than a week before the election, had Slaughter up by 10 points. It’s not a “trouncing,” as some media have reported. (For a real trouncing, see US Senator Kirsten Gillibrand’s victory over attorney Wendy Long.) But Slaughter’s victory was solid. Slaughter was certainly helped by the presidential election. The Obama-Romney contest brought out the city vote, which went heavily for Slaughter. Turnout for the City of Rochester was about 71 percent. To put that in perspective, in 2010, an “off” year, city turnout was approximately 43 percent. And Slaughter’s numbers in the 25th District race are nearly identical to the ObamaBiden ticket’s margin of victory over RomneyRyan in Monroe County. Beyond the numbers, though, Brooks made tactical errors. She delayed talking about national
issues — some would say she never did address them satisfactorily — choosing instead to run on her record as county executive. She seemed to think that her considerable star Louise Slaughter. power combined Photo by MATT DETURCK with the public’s disgust with Congress would propel her to victory. She may have underestimated voters’ affection for Slaughter, too. Slaughter’s campaign went early, hard, and heavy on the county’s scandals and its reputation for cronyism and patronage under Brooks. It’s tough to tell how much of an impact that had. The strategy has never worked for Dems in local races, but they’ve never had Slaughter’s money and political machine working for them, either. So, what’s next? Some people say the loss damaged Brooks’ viability as a future candidate. Not necessarily. She’s relatively young, still popular locally, a prolific fund-raiser, and now continues on page 6
PRESERVATION | BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN
Dollar store is poor fit Although their opinion is not binding, Rochester Preservation Board members are unanimously opposed to replacing a historic former church at 660 West Main Street with a Dollar General. | Board members offered remarks on the proposal at a meeting last week, but did not take a vote. Their comments will be taken into consideration when the Zoning Board decides the church’s fate on November 29. | Owner Marvin Maye wants to tear down the vacant, 19th-century church and an adjoining house to build the Dollar General and two additional commercial spaces. The church is in the Neighbors United neighborhood in southwest Rochester, bordering the Susan B. Anthony Neighborhood and Bulls Head. | Some neighbors and neighborhood groups say Maye’s proposal doesn’t fit with the revitalization happening in that area. They want to find a new use for the church, such as for an indoor mall or west-side performance space. | Preservation Board members said last week that the scale and form of the church fit the character of the neighborhood, according to a city spokesperson, but Maye’s proposal does not.

League focuses on Lake Ontario The Rochester League of Women Voters has decided that its advocacy work will include protecting Lake Ontario and addressing issues affecting the lake. During a meeting last week, the group adopted a position drafted by the Lake Michigan League of Women Voters, an interstate organization of league chapters around Lake Michigan. The position spells out specific concerns applicable to the Great Lakes system as a whole. It calls for limiting the use of fragile shoreline areas, controlling the spread of invasive species through non-toxic measures, protecting water quality, and strengthening land-use management within the lake basins. The position also opposes inefficient and excessive water use, destruction of wetlands, toxic discharges into the air and water, and new or increased diversions of lake water outside of the basins. The Lake Michigan organization developed and adopted the position in the 1970’s and has updated it several times since. The Rochester league is applying it to Lake Ontario. “We can, through our committee work, begin to explore where we go with that,” says Georgia DeGregorio, president of the Rochester league. The Lake Michigan League of Women Voters has asked league chapters in Great Lakes states to support its position. Great Lakes issues are impacted by local, state, and federal policies and advocacy work is necessary at all levels of government. So the idea is to get leagues to support the position and engage on appropriate issues. “It’s just a way of encouraging advocacy and protecting and preserving the Great Lakes,” says Suzanne Dixon, director of natural resources for the Michigan state League of Women Voters and a board
member of the Lake Michigan League of Women Voters. Of particular importance is advocacy for federal Great Lakes Restoration Initiative funding. Congress committed to providing money for ecological preservation projects and anti-pollution efforts in the Great Lakes, but after the first year started backing away from its promise. Lake Ontario has had its environmental success stories, and SUNY Brockport professor Joe Makarewicz likes to talk about those first when he discusses the Great Lakes ecosystem. For example, efforts to reduce phosphorous pollution have paid off, he says. And pesticides like DDT and mirex aren’t nearly as prevalent in Lake Ontario as they used to be. But the lake still has environmental problems, such as invasive species. Makarewicz laid out some of the lake’s issues for Rochester league members in a presentation last week. One of the most visible issues has been near-shore water pollution, particularly nutrient pollution which feeds problematic algae blooms, he says. Local, state, and federal agencies have been trying to identify and address sources of the pollution.
While some of Lake Ontario’s environmental problems have improved in recent years, it still has water-quality problems near the shore. PhotoS BY MATT DETURCK
And there’s an emerging issue that could also affect near-shore water quality. Because of the state’s booming yogurt industry, Governor Andrew Cuomo says he wants to make it easier for dairy farmers to increase the size of their herds. To do that, he says he wants to relax the threshold for farms that have to comply with state regulations for concentrated animal feeding operations, which are essentially farm operations with several hundred head of livestock. But CAFO regulations require farmers to develop plans for managing
manure, which can serve as a source of nutrient pollution in water bodies. Larger unregulated herds could result in increased nutrient pollution within the Genesee River watershed and the Lake Ontario basin, Makarewicz says. DeGregorio, of the Rochester League, says that local members expressed interest in exploring the CAFO issue further. They’re also interested in examining ballast water regulations for ocean-going ships entering Lake Ontario, she says.
The group targeted O’Brien with vitriolic and, in some cases, outright false ads. So was O’Brien’s victory a rejection of those tactics? Maybe. But like Slaughter, O’Brien was bolstered by the citywide turnout, more than tripling Hanna’s total, unofficially. And not having an incumbent in the race — former Republican Senator Jim Alesi chose not to run again — left the door wide open for O’Brien. Democrats also have an enrollment edge in the district.
Republican Joe Carbone. One probable factor: ballot lines. Aldersley had one to Carbone’s four, including the Working Families Party line, which usually goes to Democrats. The Aldersley outcome could have interesting implications. If the County Legislature delays its vote on bonding for MCC’s new downtown campus until Carbone takes office in January, it means Republicans would only need one Democratic vote to approve the borrowing. Rochester Mayor Tom Richards opposes the attempt to move MCC, and so far County Lej Dems have supported his position. Is there a Democrat willing to break ranks? And who would that be?

has the experience of a national campaign under her belt. We’ll see her name on a ballot again, and probably soon. She could, for example, run for State Senate in two years, knocking out Democrat Ted O’Brien. And that would give another Republican a year of incumbency in the county executive job. (Brooks has three years left before she’s termed out.) Speaking of which, where should we look for Brooks’ heir? We’re hearing buzz about Anthony Daniele, Republican majority leader in the County Legislature. And a couple of town supervisors seem to be interested. As for Slaughter? Who knows how long she’ll stay in Congress. But at 83, she shows City

little sign of slowing down. Speculated future candidates for Slaughter’s seat include Lieutenant Governor Bob Duffy and state Assembly member Joe Morelle. And Brooks could make another run. The Sean Hanna-Ted O’Brien State Senate race was one ugly, expensive
mess. With control of the State Senate at stake, the race attracted money from several outside interest groups, including an anonymous group that ran ads against several Democratic state Senate candidates. (Control of the Senate still hadn’t been settled as of this writing.)

KEEP ON TURNING The emerging food-truck scene tries to find its place in Rochester FEATURE BY DAYNA PAPALEO 1
PHOTOS BY MATT DETURCK
1 Lizzie Clapp, owner of Le Petit Poutine; 2 Food trucks like Hello Arepa and Marty’s Meats occasionally set up shop at the Object Maker’s Lot near the Public Market; 3 A breakfast arepa stuffed with black beans, egg, and goat cheese from Hello Arepa.
t wasn’t long after her army-green Le Petit Poutine truck hit the road in the spring of 2011, slinging the Canadian staple of hand-cut fries, savory gravy, and cheese curds, plus a scattering of thyme, that I approached Lizzie Clapp about doing a story on Rochester’s food-truck scene. But there was just one little hitch: Rochester didn’t actually have a food-truck scene at that point. Though chuck wagons are by no means a new way of grubbing up, sometime in 2008 the modern breed of food trucks rolling around New York and Los Angeles began garnering oodles of attention thanks to inspired menus and a canny mastery of social networking that enabled them to attract ravenous throngs with a mere tweet. Then the media chimed in with reality-TV shows and breathless articles about innovative chefs
creating their own opportunities outside the restaurant realm. Of course, longtime locals understand that it can take a little while for things to catch on in cautious Rochester, with trends typically saturating both coasts before seeping inland. But after the phenomenal success of this year’s two Food Truck Rodeos at the Rochester Public Market — the October installment boasted the participation of more than a dozen of these wheeled meal dealies — at this point it’s fair to say Rochester officially has a scene. “It was awesome,” Clapp says of the October 4 gathering, which drew hundreds of hungry Rochesterians. “It’s so helpful for us in the food-truck community.” The popularity of local food trucks is no longer in question. The major issue now, for both food-truck owners and City
of Rochester officials, is defining locations where the trucks can do business. You’ve probably noticed the ubiquitous hot-dog carts downtown; the City of Rochester has earmarked about 50 different spots for the carts, with around half of them in use, and typically just during the more temperate months. By contrast, there are only two spaces set aside for trucks in the downtown area; one is at East Avenue and Alexander Street, the other near Manhattan Square Park. This dearth of opportunity frustrates the food-truck owners who would love a chance to feed lunch to the estimated 55,000 people working in Center City. City officials say they’re interested in finding a solution that addresses zoning and safety issues, but the food-truck owners are eager to sell their wares downtown sooner rather than later. continues on page 10 rochestercitynewspaper.com

Since debuting their food truck Brick-N-
Motor at the October rodeo, Paul Vroman and Nathan Hurtt — who met on the line at Max of Eastman Place — have found resourceful ways of providing customers with fresh salads, soups, and hand-ground burgers. Whether it be a lunchtime pop-up at Eagle’s Landing Business Park in Henrietta or as part of an occasional mini-rodeo Saturday mornings at the Object Maker’s Lot on Railroad Street with fellow trucks Le Petit Poutine, Marty’s Meats, and Hello Arepa, they’ve found opportunities to operate. But, says Vroman, “I’d like to get downtown.” “We’re down in the suburbs, and we see the skyline of the city; we want to at least broaden the view and get more exposure downtown,” Vroman says. So what’s the hold-up? Why hasn’t the city done everything in its power to revamp an outdated system and use the popularity of the food-truck movement to bring a little taste of progress to an often static downtown? “Basically what it comes down to is the safety concern,” Vroman says, citing the City of Rochester’s requirement that trucks not block the sight line of moving traffic. That’s generally not an issue for food carts, which are not only smaller but, unlike trucks, able to set up on the sidewalk. City Clerk Dan Karin says that he has met with several food-truck operators about new vending spots, and that there is support for this growing business niche on City Council. But in addition to the public-safety issues, the city also has to make sure any new truck spots won’t detract from existing brick-and-mortar businesses, or impact residential areas. He says
he’s interested in working on a pilot program that he hopes to have going by the spring that would address the need for more downtown truck spaces. He also has an eye toward the promised public space in the still-evolving Midtown redevelopment process, which might offer some permanent spaces for food trucks. “I think there’s room to work within what’s already set up, and it’s really exciting,” says Le Petit Poutine’s Clapp. “But in order to get things done, we’ve got to supply the information, supply the demand. Really paint a picture for them, and just kind of make some compromises and let [city officials] see, over the evolution of how this is going to work, that it will.” Which brings us back to that gonzo October
Food Truck Rodeo, an experience that Arthur Rothfuss III of Hello Arepa likens to “learning to swim by being tossed in the deep end.” After discussing with his Venezuelanborn wife the notion of doing something in Rochester with a traditional Latin-American dish known as arepas, Rothfuss decided this past spring to get in the food-truck game. By the end of September Hello Arepa was serving what the side of the truck describes as “a grilled then baked corn-flour patty stuffed with tastiness,” with fillings that include barbecued tofu or black beans and feta. Besides the Railroad Street gig, Hello Arepa occasionally sets up at Roc Brewing Co. on Union Street, and Rothfuss is optimistic about working with the city. “They want us to be able to do business like everyone else,” he says. “It’s hard to change regulations, but I’m confident we’re going to work something out. We just want to make sure it doesn’t get swept aside.” Like any good entrepreneur, Clapp did her homework when she made the decision
last year to secure a curbside spot for Le Petit Poutine, eventually settling on the space outside of Lux Lounge on South Avenue, where she serves on select evenings (the South Wedge falls outside of the downtown business corridor, and it is subject to different zoning regulations). But she describes a veritable “Who’s On First?” routine upon trying to convey her wishes to the powersthat-be, eventually going so far as to e-mail the code-enforcement officer cell phone photos of the required measurements. “I didn’t hear from him for two weeks,” Clapp says. “I thought maybe I overstepped my bounds by being a little overbearing, but I really wanted this to happen.” “They have a lot of work to do,” says Clapp of city officials. “Maybe the budget isn’t as much as it should be for people in those positions. But in order for Rochester to be cooler, or improve in any way, it’s going to sometimes be more work. And I think from our end, as food-truck owners, the more of that research and help that we can give to them, the more they’re going to want to work with us.” The Rochester scene isn’t alone in its
growing pains. The Buffalo News recently reported on what it called “the Amherst food-truck controversy,” which jeopardized Buffalo’s Best Food Truck Contest, an outdoor event at the Boulevard Mall that doubled as a benefit for Buffalo City Mission. At issue was Amherst’s 1993 “peddling and soliciting” law requiring “a retail or wholesale business conducted from a temporary structure or tent, truck, van, or trailer” to pony up a $100 permit fee (per truck and per location) that would only be good for 90 days.
Food-truck owners essentially argued that the repeated permit fees were prohibitive, while town officials countered that they could not legally waive the fees, even for a fundraiser. The October 6 function went on after one of the mall’s tenants covered the $700 in fees, and the Town of Amherst is said to be updating and revising its peddling and soliciting law, with plans to create a new permit specifically tailored to food trucks. Those kinds of laws are usually meant to protect the businesses around where a mobile vendor sets up, and that is one of the concerns mentioned by City Clerk Dan Karin. But Vroman says that he doesn’t see a lot of pushback from the traditional Rochester restaurant community. “We know enough people who own or operate or work in brick-and-mortar establishments that are probably more excited about food trucks than anyone else in the city of Rochester,” he says. Besides, says Chowder UP’s Tim Gorie, any nearby restaurant would be able to offer amenities that trucks can’t, like ambience, tables, and restrooms. “If they’re not serving substandard food, they have nothing to worry about,” he says. Gorie, who has been cooking seafood in different jobs for the last 35 years, made plans to open Chowder UP after realizing that there were no chowder houses in Rochester. “I basically offer what I like,” he says of his steamed-and-sautéed seafood menu, which includes classic lobster rolls, crab sandwiches, fish tacos, and of course clam chowder. Gorie is encouraged by the ongoing dialogue between the city and the foodtruck owners, some of whom have recently begun meeting as a Food Truck Alliance. “We’re very cognizant of the fact that we

We are business owners, and I can’t see why the city wouldn’t want more businesses downtown.” Morgan Stanley’s loss is the food truck scene’s gain, as O’Sullivan left a career in finance upon noticing a lack of food trucks. (Fun fact: he also played hoops for the Rochester RazorSharks over the 2008-09 season.) “A lot of people probably thought I was insane,” O’Sullivan says, but he knew food, having cooked at Coppergrass Bistro under Max’s Ryan Jennings and dabbled in catering for family and friends. Naturally, O’Sullivan put his business acumen to work as well. After designing his truck, he says, “The first thing I did was find locations to do business. I read the rules, I read every town code.” And that strategy paid off in spades, with Marty’s Meats on the road nearly every day, doing breakfast or late night at RIT’s Park Point, or bringing lunch to the hungry workers at Tobey Village Office Park in Pittsford. It’s worth underscoring that the food being
churned out by many area food trucks goes
far beyond the hot dogs and street meat being offered by more traditional mobile vendors. O’Sullivan tailors his protein-centric menus to the particular clientele on a given day; brunch on Railroad Street features egg sandwiches and meats on a stick with sophisticated flavor combinations, while the aprés-midnight crowd has access to tacos, tater tots, and plates. Lunch brings out the salads and an impressive array of sandwiches, like the Thanksgiving, consisting of smoked turkey, house-made stuffing-flavored potato chips, and cranberry mayo. “I think that you can put the same quality of food out of a truck that you can get out of a fine-dining restaurant, minus the high overhead, the high cost that you have to pass on to the consumer,” says Vroman, who knows a thing or two about upscale eateries from his most recent job as executive chef at Max of Eastman Place. Vroman’s Brick-N-Motor, which Clapp describes as “a dream kitchen on wheels,” recently offered a wild mushroom risotto with pork belly, fennel salad, and maple gastrique for $8. Mobile food sure ain’t what it used to be. “I think that’s the hard part, is breaking the stereotype of the hot-dog vendor, and then what we’re doing,” says Brick-N-Motor partner Hurtt. “We respect what they’ve been doing for years now, and we’re not trying to take their territory. We’re just offering a different opportunity to get some food to enjoy the city outside, and that’s the beauty of this.” The intimacy of the food truck also offers the opportunity to subvert another cliché, that of the surly cook skulking around the back of the house. “I don’t think you ever really see a relationship between someone that’s making

the food and the customer that close,” says Hurtt. “When you’re working in a kitchen you never get to see the customer.” For Rothfuss, the set-up combines the best of both worlds. “It’s really, really fun. I love arepas, and I love chatting with people,” he says.

BEST NEIGHBORHOOD BAR A UNIQUE NEIGHBORHOOD BAR!
Last Thursday’s concert by the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra with conductor Jeff Tyzik had all the right elements: a cohesive program, modern American composers, an amazing soloist, a world premiere work, and Tyzik at the podium with the RPO. Each one of the four featured compositions was by a contemporary American composer: Michael Daugherty (b. 1954), Leonard Bernstein (19181990), Aaron Copland (1900-1990), and Tyzik (b. 1951). There is a certain je ne sais quoi about great American orchestral works that reflect our nation’s huge landscapes, our smoke-swirled jazz influences, our own non-homogenized rhythms and ways of moving about. I want to jump right into some comments on the Tyzik composition, “Images: Musical Impressions of an Art Museum.” The work is a suite of seven pieces, each one inspired by a work of art at Rochester’s own Memorial Art Gallery. If I have a comment about “Images,” it is about the order of the pieces and the inclusion of one that seemed misplaced for the suite and the program. First, the sequence of the program insert showing the artwork should
have been in the same sequence as the performance. The art was being used to illustrate the impending orchestral performance; it shouldn’t have just been tossed on a page to advertise the art. Second, if you look at the art and you read through Tyzik’s extensive program notes, the piece “Harlem Street Scene” might not belong in the overall composition. It’s the one place in the “Images” work and, indeed, the entire program, where Tyzik used the word “fun.” It’s a fabulous little piece; a Dorsey-esque, get-you-in-the-aisles-and-dance, feel-good number. But the four pieces before it and the piece immediately after it were intense works about killing, horror, nightmares, and the living moving with an urn of ashes. Final word, and it’s on Tyzik as a conductor. He’s superb. Every bit of his 19 years working with the RPO came rushing through during Thursday night’s performance. Tyzik clearly knows what he wants to hear and how to shape the RPO to achieve that sound. The RPO clearly knows what to expect when Tyzik is at the podium, and the musicians look and sound comfortable and confident under his leadership.

Saxophonist Charles Pillow has found success in his jazz arrangement of the classical piece “Pictures at an Exhibition.” “It just seemed to be perfect for jazz. I added a few chords here and there but mostly stayed true what the melody was,” he says. Photo PROVIDED
Tonal palette Charles Pillow w/Roberts Wesleyan Jazz Ensemble Thursday, November 15 Hale Auditorium, Roberts Wesleyan College, 2301 Westside Dr. 7:30 p.m. | Free | 594-6008, roberts.edu [ PROFILE ] BY RON NETSKY
The theme is so grand, it’s almost as well known as the first four notes of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony. It arrives a long way into the piece, but just about everyone knows “The Great Gate of Kiev” from “Pictures at an Exhibition.” Still, you’ve probably never heard it the way it will be performed by the Roberts Wesleyan College Jazz Ensemble with guest saxophonist/ arranger Charles Pillow. Pillow has written a new big-band arrangement transforming Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky’s 1870’s piece into Miles Davis, 1970’s style jazz. “In his re-imagining of ‘Pictures at an Exhibition,’ Charles has used this rich, familiar material in a powerful and meaningful way,” says band director Russell Scarbrough, who will conduct the work. “The ensemble, which is a young group this year, will really be challenged and stretched by this this experience.” 14 City November 14-20, 2012
Pillow says it wasn’t too much of a stretch to turn this classic into jazz. “The opening theme is a pentatonic [five-note] scale, which is very much used in jazz and blues music,” says Pillow. “And the theme of ‘The Old Castle’ is in E-flat minor for alto saxophone, the same key as parts of ‘A Love Supreme’ was for tenor sax. And it’s a very similar melody.” The big-band arrangement Pillow has written (based on his 2004 small-group version) is the latest in a long history of transformations for this venerable composition. Ever since the 10-movement piano suite was written by Mussorgsky in 1874, “Pictures at an Exhibition” has been reinvented in myriad ways. In fact, the orchestra version most people know is not the original piece. While Mussorgsky’s composition remains a major vehicle for keyboard virtuosos, the most popular version of “Pictures” is an orchestral arrangement by French composer Maurice Ravel. (And Ravel’s is only one of many orchestral arrangements.) It does not end there. “Pictures” has had dozens of incarnations over the decades, including a hit album by British rockers Emerson, Lake & Palmer in the 1970’s. Pillow became enamored of the piece while attending Loyola University, where he
played the Ravel arrangement adapted for concert band. “I was just enthralled with the music,” says Pillow. Mussorgsky was inspired to write the work when he attended an exhibition of paintings by his friend Viktor Hartmann, an artist and architect who died in 1873 at the age of 39. The evocative titles of the piece’s movements refer to the images, many of which were based on Hartmann’s travels. Only a few of the original pictures survive. At some of Pillow’s performances of “Pictures” an artist creates images behind the band as it plays. At Roberts Wesleyan, the college’s art department will be projecting images during the performance. Pillow earned his master’s degree at the
Eastman School of Music, where he studied jazz with Ray Ricker and Bill Dobbins and worked on arranging with Rayburn Wright. Wright “was really a master arranger,” says Pillow, who now teaches at Eastman. A top New York session player, Pillow spends a great deal of time playing other people’s arrangements. He has appeared on a variety of albums by artists ranging from Van Morrison and Ray Charles to Amy Winehouse and Joss Stone. He usually doesn’t work directly with the artist.
“We normally work with the producer,” says Pillow, “but I recently did a session with Donald Fagen [of Steely Dan] and he was there directing everything.” Another recent project was Paul Simon’s latest album, “So Beautiful or So What.” “[Simon is] very demanding; he knows exactly what he wants,” says Pillow. “He would have us do different things almost like he wasn’t sure what he wanted. But then when he heard it he knew what he didn’t want. He’d say, ‘You play this down an octave, you play this up an octave, try it this way.’ Then they would orchestrate it right on the spot.” Pillow says Fagen and Simon have the luxury of a lot of time in the studio. That’s not the case when Pillow records original cast albums for Broadway shows, like the revivals of “Gypsy” and “Kiss Me, Kate.” “Cast albums are done in one day,” says Pillow, “one or two takes and you’re done.” A versatile musician, Pillow has also played in pit bands on Broadway. Before I knew his name, I remember marveling at the ability of one musician to pick up and play one reed instrument after another in the pit band when I saw “Sweet Smell of Success” on Broadway in 2002. Turns out it was Pillow. Of course he’s also in demand for straightahead jazz sessions with top artists like Ron Carter, Michael Brecker, and Maria Schneider. He especially liked working with guitarist John Scofield on an album titled “Quiet.” “It’s one of the coolest projects I’ve worked on,” says Pillow, “I like his quirky style. He played acoustic guitar with a small horn section behind him. He played so great and relaxed. The charts had a kind of Gil Evans influence.” Pillow was also thrilled to work with one of his idols, Joe Henderson, on a big-band project. “He’s one of the all-time saxophone greats. Just to be in the same room with him was great,” Pillow says. After the success of his “Pictures” album, Pillow came out with a jazz arrangement of Gustav Holst’s “The Planets.” Then he recorded “Van Gogh Letters,” an interpretive project in which he invented melodies based on the artist’s letters to his brother Theo. That’s not far from Mussorgsky’s method when he wrote “Pictures.” “I was fascinated by Mussorgsky’s notes about ‘Goldenberg and Schmuyle,’” says Pillow, referring to a movement of the work based on two of the few surviving pictures. “He described two people: one rich, one poor; two people, two melodies. I took the overall melody for the theme of the piece and used his other melody for a bass line so, in a way, I was de-orchestrating his original.” As for the future, “My next project might be a blowing session,” says Pillow, “something simpler than a gargantuan project.”

FUNK | Ocupanther
This outfit takes its name from the ocular panther, a strange mythological beast that can apparently enter one’s being through mere eye contact, “hypnotizing the mind and terrorizing the soul.” The Rochester-based quartet hopes that its intelligent and progressive take on funk does the same amount of wreckage between your ears. The group’s talented pair of guitarists, Mikey Pantano and Collin Jones, takes cues from old-school prog-rock as well as the modern improvisational jam scene, while bassist Jason Gilly and drummer Matthew Blauvelt constitute a formidable rhythm section that grounds some seriously smooth grooves. Put it all together and you’ve got an impressive musical animal with a predatory sonic approach.

Suher is an oboist. Liptak, a violinist. On Friday night, with David Harman at the podium, Cordancia brings in organist Bruce Frank for a performance of classical works under the title “Vintage to Modern.” The concert includes some of the music Stravinsky used as his inspiration for his ballet “Pulcinella,” as well as an organ concerto by Handel.

DJ/Electronic | The Quadratic Trio
FOLK/ROCK | Greg Klyma
Have you ever heard an album that made you swear you were under the ocean when you shut your eyes and listened? If you’ve spun The Antlers’ recent release “Undersea,” or the Tears Run Rings masterwork “Distance,” then you know exactly what you’re in store for with The Quadratic Trio. This band takes that spacey music and raises it to the nth degree with “Aquatexture.” Using a quadraphonic sound system and synths, the performance is meant to not only create the mental image of being underwater, but maybe even trick you into feeling it. There will be all the aquatic noises you’d expect, and maybe a few you wouldn’t, which should serve well to keep you from “floating off” the narrative arc of the performance. If nothing else, this will go splendidly with the snowy weather undoubtedly on its way, and it should certainly be all kinds of relaxing.
Buffalo-based, blue-collar troubadour Greg Klyma grew up the son of a garbage man. This hard-nosed work ethic has informed an extensive catalog and a tireless touring schedule. As much a storyteller as he is songwriter, Klyma utilizes a slew of instruments (guitar, mandolin, harmonica, piano) to color his narrative approach. Sarah Craig, from Caffé Lena in Saratoga Springs, says his “stories blend seamlessly into songs, evoking a flavor of Mark Twain, Woody Guthrie, and David Sedaris.” His sound, influenced by the likes of Merle Haggard, Tom Petty, and Waylon Jennings, would be right at home at folk festivals and random campground jams. As his website boasts, he’s “a home-cooked meal and a Vaudeville show, in a fast-food, karaoke world.”

Theater — had the audience howling at the performance I attended. Again, much of the credit for that goes to Moore and the way she commands the audience, and her off-the-cuff comments. Even before the nativity section, she would go out into the audience to confront poorly behaved patrons. At one point she talked to a young woman who had been the May crown queen, and at the end rebuked her for talking while chomping on a piece of gum the whole time. One particularly noisy audience member got branded a troublemaker, and later was drafted into the nativity scene. And another made the cardinal sin of leaving his cell-phone ringer on during the play, and Sister confiscated it. (Good on her; maybe we need nuns patrolling every theater audience.) The way Moore dealt with all the distractions was honestly funnier than most of the show’s actual material. Colleen Moore in “Sister’s Christmas Catechism,” playing this holiday season on Geva’s Nextstage. PHOTO PROVIDED
O come, all ye faithful “Sister’s Christmas Catechism” Through December 9 Geva Theatre Nextstage, 75 Woodbury Blvd. Tickets start at $35 | 232-4382, gevatheatre.org [ REVIEW ] BY ERIC REZSNYAK
Christmas items started infiltrating stores before Halloween. Holiday music is already on the radio. Thanksgiving is next week. I know, I know; it’s depraved. The holidays are upon us, and it’s safe to say that none of us is ready for the mad rush that accompanies the end of another year. But ready or not, here it comes, and Geva is perhaps a little ahead of the pack with one of its holiday offerings, the Nextstage comedy “Sister’s Christmas Catechism.” It’s a small, cute show that is smart counterprogramming to the main-stage family spectacle “A Christmas Carol,” which begins in a few weeks. It’s also refreshing in the way that it deals with the tension between Christmas’s religious origins and its modern consumerist-dominated nature, and manages to have a bit of fun with Catholic dogma while still taking it seriously. “Christmas Catechism” comes from the same team that did “Late Night Catechism,” 18 City november 14-20, 2012
which had a popular run on the Nextstage last year. Reprising the one and only role in the show is Colleen Moore as Sister, an alternately wistful and brusque Catholic nun leading a catechism class (you’re the students), this one specifically focused on Christmas. Moore is so convincing in the role that I honestly thought she might have been a nun (apparently not, but she did come up through Catholic schools). Her low, affect-free voice underscores her nononsense presence, although she lights up whenever she talks about her own Christmas memories, mentions the baby Jesus, or one of her students gets an answer right. The writing in “Christmas Catechism”
frankly isn’t all that strong. The material is fine, but hardly laugh-out-loud funny. It’s Moore’s delivery that makes the show work, and especially the way she relates to the audience. Typically I cannot stand shows that require audience participation. “Catechism” practically requires that every person in the theater get involved with multiple question-and-answer sessions (the lucky winners get “quality prizes”), sing-alongs, and at least one pop quiz on spelling. The second half of the show involves nearly a dozen audience members being brought up on stage to participate in a living nativity scene, and the casting process — and costuming transformations
What is commendable about the play
itself is the way that it handles religion and comedy. Religion — just about any religion — is filled with so many ridiculous concepts and stories that it’s easy to get laughs by cynically poking fun. You get the feeling that the folks that wrote “Christmas Catechism” are believers, or at least people who genuinely respect those who have faith. Only one of the jokes in the show even came close to being insulting, and that was more inferred than expressed. (For the record, it was the story about how Joseph ended up with Mary, which involved a bunch of old guys touching their staffs until something white shot out of the end.) Whether you’re religious or not, you have to appreciate people’s views being treated with dignity, especially when it’s so easy to rip them down. A final note: make sure to get to the theater early. The Friday show I attended was supposed to start at 7 p.m., but the doors to the theater were closed minutes earlier. I had to wait, along with several other people, until the opening choir number was finished before I was allowed to enter, and Sister threw a little school-marm shade at the “latecomers.” (Sorry, we weren’t late; you were early.) Even more people came in after that and got even worse ribbing. So unless you want to get sassed at a Christmas show, make sure to take your seats a good 15 minutes before show time.

FILM | Warren Miller’s “flow state”
As I write this Rochester has only received the softest dusting of snow for winter 2012-2013. But we know more is coming, so the showing of Warren Miller Entertainment’s new film “Flow State” seems particularly well-timed. On Tuesday, November 20, at 7:30 p.m. at the Auditorium Theatre (885 E. Main St.) Warren Miller’s 63rd film will feature footage of skiing and snowboarding on some of the world’s most breathtaking peaks. The scenery includes mountains abroad in Japan, Norway, Austria, as well as domestically in Colorado, California, Alaska, and Utah. Along with picturesque landscapes of bright blue skies set against vast, white mountains, the film will highlight professional skiers such as Julian Carr, X Games Champion Colby James West, and Olympic gold medalist Ted Ligety, among others. Though many dread the winter months in Rochester, perhaps this film will inspire anticipation for the upcoming season and the unique beauties that accompany it. Tickets to the screening cost $20.

SPECIAL EVENT | MuCCC Benefit Show
The thing about community spaces for the arts is that there isn’t nearly enough funding to support them. The thing about buildings is that they require a lot of maintenance. The Multiuse Community Cultural Center has been a boon for indie and emerging theater groups, variety shows, and performances of all sorts, since it debuted in 2009 and now it needs your help raising funds for much-needed repairs and improvements. Show your love on Saturday, November 17, at 8 p.m., by attending “A Benefit Show for MuCCC’s Benefit, Benefitting MuCCC.” The event will showcase an ensemble cast of seven actors in a witty revue featuring original humorous shorts and theater classics with a twist, singing, dancing, and tributes to giants of the theatrical and literary worlds, including Shakespeare, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Edgar Allan Poe, Charles Dickens, and Alan Jay Lerner. MuCCC is located at 142 Atlantic Ave. Doors open at 7 p.m. for a reception, silent auctions, and raffles. Tickets are $10, $15 per couple in advance, of $15 each at the door.

SPECIAL EVENT | Celebration of the Kahn Church
Though we’re not always aware of them, Rochester has some pretty special architectural gems. For example, I once spoke with an Italian exchange student who was delighted to see in person the First Unitarian Church (at 220 S. Winton Road), which he had seen in slides in an art-history course back home. The building was designed by internationally renowned architect Louis Kahn, who created the unique sanctuary space in 1962. It was described as one of “the most significant works of religious architecture of the century” in the New York Times by Paul Goldberger, a Pulitzer-Prize-winning architectural critic. Its exterior and ceiling are characterized by fascinating details that allow indirect natural light into the space. A celebration of the 50th anniversary of the building will take place at the church on Friday, November 16, at 6:30 p.m. The event will feature guest speaker and architect Terrance Goode, who will speak about Louis Kahn and the building, as well as commentary by Cynthia Howk of The Landmark Society. An exhibit on floor plans and materials relating to construction of the building will be on display in the church’s gallery. The event is free to attend.

Fifty years on the Bondwagon [ REVIEW ] by George Grella
“Skyfall” (PG-13), directed by Sam Mendes Now playing
Apparently smashing all box office records for a James Bond flick, “Skyfall,” the latest addition to what essentially has become its own genre, follows most of the conventions the series has established while adding a few new devices and concepts. After 50 years of Bondage, audiences know pretty well just what to expect — fisticuffs and shootouts, spectacular chases in a variety of vehicles, the display of gimmicks and gadgets, exotic locations, an evil archvillain, and of course

a couple of comely young women. “Skyfall,” however, also exhibits a contemporary interest in the debate over human intelligence and hightech espionage, which provides something like an intellectual subtext to the actions and characters. The picture opens with the usual introductory bang, this time in Turkey, with Bond (Daniel Craig) discovering a group of his colleagues murdered, which initiates his pursuit of the killer, who has stolen a computer record of NATO undercover agents. The extended sequence involves the familiar amazing camerawork, stunts, and some brilliant ingenuity — Bond not only rides a motorcycle over the rooftops of Istanbul but winds up on top of a train, where he uses a construction crane to scoop off the roof and catch his quarry. When his fellow agent Eve (Naomie Harris), aiming at the bad guy, accidentally nails 007, he falls off the train, off a lofty bridge, hundreds of feet into a fastmoving river, the sequence ends and in effect, the movie proper begins. The head of MI6, the irascible M

(Judi Dench), writes Bond’s obituary, inspiring the extended discussion of the value of people versus machinery in an age of computers, satellites, electronic surveillance, and global tracking systems. That argument reaches its climax when everything explodes as she testifies before a Parliamentary committee inquiring into the disastrous loss of the NATO agents. The archvillain this time around, a former British agent named Silva (Javier Barden), in fact manipulates computer technology so well that he hacks into any system at will, including the supposedly impervious machinery of the intelligence service. Unlike most Bond villains, he seems uninterested in the usual world dominations — these criminal masterminds harbor grand ambitions — but seeks revenge for M’s betrayal of him in the past. His motives reveal a most unpleasant side to M, who apparently traded him for some other agents, blithely consigning him to torture and death. When Silva captures Bond — another long story — he suggests a weird Oedipal subtext, hinting at a filial love for the old termagant, a terrible sadness over her betrayal, and further fueling his revenge, a consequent sibling rivalry for her dubious affections with Bond himself. That strange emotional component makes Silva a most unusual Bond villain, and Barden’s campy, juicy performance underlines his difference from that figure in the past. His apparently limitless assets, like an army of

heavily armed assassins, a helicopter gunship, and his ability to escape any confinement, however, connect him with a host of his predecessors. Perhaps reflecting the deeper, darker emotional aspects of the story, much of the movie takes place beneath a variety of surfaces. Bond sinks in that Turkish river (the script never explains his resurrection), falls through the ice in a Scottish pond near the end, and in between finds himself in a number of subterranean locales — MI6 sets up shop in an old underground airraid bunker, he pursues Silva through ancient passages underneath London, a disused subway tunnel, and escapes an attack in a crude tunnel at his ancestral estate, appropriately named Skyfall. Daniel Craig once again demonstrates a pleasingly understated toughness in his impersonation of James Bond, with fewer of the juvenile double entendres and silly throwaway lines that apparently amuse so many viewers; he also wears the nifty suits and the obligatory tuxedo quite well. He sips at least one martini, though without the business of shaking rather than stirring (trust me, a real martini drinker would not want to bruise the booze). His rugged visage contrasts with the smooth good looks of, say, Roger Moore or Pierce Brosnan and his physical presence in general deserves comparison with the archetypal movie Bond, Sean Connery. Craig is an exemplary Bond and “Skyfall” one of the better films of this late, decadent stage of the form.
The Rochester Polish Film Festival, sponsored by the Skalny Center for Polish and Central European Studies at the University of Rochester, writes its 15th chapter this year, with eight features and four shorts that explore the myriad aspects of the Polish experience. Guest artists who will be on hand to present their work include veteran filmmaker Leszek Wosiewicz (“Totentanz: Scenes From The Warsaw Uprising”), writer-director Jan Komasa (the acclaimed “Suicide Room” is his narrative feature debut), and co-producer Arkadiusz Wojnarowski (the animated documentary “Crulic: The Path to Beyond”). But first, a peek at a few of this year’s selections, all of which are in Polish with English subtitles. Visit the festival’s website for more details. Ki is an unmarried mother with a weaselly boyfriend who does more pouting than their adorably towheaded little boy, even going to far as to storm out right when Ki

needs to leave for work. We’re certain this loser is holding her back, and we’re psyched when she kicks him to the curb. But as “My Name Is Ki” continues, it becomes pretty clear that Ki’s problems are largely of her own making, through an unwillingness to take responsibility, a petulant sense of entitlement that taxes even her most generous friends, and an inflated opinion of her artistic self. (Not to mention a nasty, vengeful streak.) Director Leszek Dawid’s keenly observed drama watches as Ki learns about standing on her own without the assistance of a man, and he’s blessed with a brave and beautiful central performance by young Rebecca De Mornay lookalike Roma Gasiorowska as Ki. Gasiorowska is not afraid to paint the very human Ki in truthful strokes, and, as we all know, the truth often hurts. (Saturday, November 17, 3 p.m.) “Courage” seems to be something that
the macho Fred thinks he possesses; he collects antique firearms, races oncoming trains, and has a cowboy attitude toward the future of his internet company. Fred’s brother Jerzy is the tentative one, advising a more sensible path in business and objecting to Fred’s reckless ways. But it ain’t Fred who steps up when thugs harass a young woman the train, a move that leaves Jerzy on life support and Fred weaving a web of lies over the fact that he was unable to muster up the guts to help his brother. Fred’s shame takes the form of outright panic when it look as though everyone, from his family to his friends, will learn the truth about his inaction, and “Courage” unfolds as Fred comes to terms with inadequacies that he’d been burying underneath blustery bravado. The stoic Robert Wieckiewicz anchors the film as Fred, opting not for big, noisy epiphanies that ultimately ring false, but a gradual self-awareness of harsh realities. (Saturday, November 17, 6:30 p.m.)
Imagine the swoony holiday ensemble romance “Love Actually” transplanted from London to Warsaw and you’ve got Mitja Okorn’s predictable but lovely “Letters To Santa,” which takes place on Christmas Eve amongst a gaggle of attractive lonelyhearts. Chief among them is Mikolaj (the charming Maciej Stuhr), a radio DJ and widowed dad with a cute moppet of a son who spouts encouraging albeit questionable statistics like “Six out of five women agree to go on a date with a stranger.” That particular stranger is Doris (Roma Gasiorowska from “My Name Is Ki”), getting ready to spend the holiday alone when she’s pelted with one of Cupid’s snowballs. There’s also a childless couple, an unhappy family, a couple of neglected kids, a mean Santa, and — oh, you get it. It’s fluffy, it’s fun, and there’s never any doubt about the happily-ever-after, which is sometimes exactly what you need. (Sunday, November 18, 3 p.m.) Poland’s official Best Foreign Language Film submission for the upcoming Academy Awards is Waldemar Krzystek’s “80 Million,” a gripping, fact-based story set in 1980 Wroclaw, just before Communist military junta leader Wojciech Jaruzelski declared martial law in his showdown with Lech Walesa’s pro-democracy Solidarity movement. The film revolves around the daring efforts of four young activists to withdraw — and, just as importantly, stash for future use — 80 million zlotys in Solidarity funds before the account got frozen by the opposition. I’m not gonna lie; “80 Million” isn’t always easy to follow, and it takes a while to figure out who’s who, what they’re up to, and why. (A casual familiarity with these true-life events wouldn’t hurt.) Once you’re on board, however, it’s like a tense heist film, a cat-and-mouse game between the two sides, with a double agent or two thrown in for good measure. (Monday, November 19, 7 p.m.)

One of the most endearing and internationally renowned films of all time, My Neighbor Totoro is a deceptively simple tale of two girls, Satsuki and Mei, who move with their father to the countryside to be nearer to their ailing mother. The girls soon befriend a family of Totoros, gentle but powerful creatures that live in the surrounding forests. Beneath the film’s playfulness and narrative simplicity lie depths of wisdom — as with much of Miyazaki’s work, at its core this film is about humankind’s relationship to the earth.

childhood favorite of hers from trips to her Canadian dad’s cottage near a little village where the comfort food is sold, Clapp says, from “broken-down buses, little shacks, all run by families.” It was her sister-in-law and former partner, whom Clapp credits with giving her the confidence to take the plunge into small business, that first planted the idea of replicating the poutine experience a little further south. “If I did it alone from the beginning, that whole start-up process — all the paperwork, figuring out where the truck’s coming from, and just putting the money up — I would have been too afraid,” she says. Clapp eventually bought her partners out. “The things that were working were starting to make money. Val and Seamus had a young family and couldn’t do that kind of schedule, and I got a taste of it and I loved it. And I didn’t want it to go away.” “I’m just getting the hang of this whole thing; ordering, keeping things in line,” Clapp says. “I think poutine’s done really well, but within doing well I’ve made improvements to the truck that make poutine easier and safer. That’s the next — can I say that? That’s the next truck. I want to do poutine with country gravy and an egg over easy. I want to do Le Grand Poutine.” With Rochester’s cold weather looming,
other food-truck owners are thinking about their futures, too. For Marty O’Sullivan, 2013 involves the branding of Marty’s Meats, bottling his sauces for retail, and maybe even launching another truck. Tim Gorie is securing high-profile gigs for Chowder

UP, though he acknowledges, “It’ll be a lean winter.” Many food trucks are available to cater private events. And all of them are waiting to see what the city’s next move might be. “Obviously there needs to be regulations,” says Vroman. “We don’t want to just be able to drive around the city and stop wherever we want to stop. But at the same time we don’t want to be given the spots that are so far away from everything where it’s not feasible for us.” Says Clapp, “The whole beauty and purpose of being on wheels is to go to underserved areas, to bring a little something special to a spot that might not be available otherwise; that’s the part about it that’s exciting and could be used as a really great tool for the city. But I think they’re just very caught up in all the details, which is their job — but let us help answer those questions. Let’s have a conversation about it, not a conflict.” This article contains additional reporting by Eric Rezsnyak.

Colgate is Calling You
63 Colgate Street
Curb appeal abounds at 63 Colgate! This tree-lined street is a quiet dead end, but the traditional ease of access of the 19th Ward neighborhood is just moments away—close to both I-390 and downtown Rochester. The fresh, bright blue paint of this Arts & Crafts bungalow is cheery and inviting as you walk up to the large front porch. The leaded glass door opens into a foyer lined with the original ceramic tile floor. Immediately to your right the original wood floors of the living room gleam. The room is chock full of beautiful original details, including the front windows, leaded glass windows flanking the brick fireplace, and a built-in bookcase. The new gas fireplace is perfect for the impending winter nights! Original double, leaded glass doors open into the dining room. Incredible beams span the ceiling and original details adorn the walls. At some point during the home’s history the butler’s pantry off the dining room was converted to the quaintest of home offices—with space for dueling desks and a garden view into the backyard—while retaining the original leaded glass door. The dining room leads conveniently into the kitchen, where a sunlit addition off the back of the house improves storage capabilities with a full pantry wall and space for what could be a perfect breakfast nook. Out the sliding glass door, steps lead down into the fully fenced backyard, complete with a patio at the rear and lots of lawn.
Head through the hallway from the kitchen, and loop back to the foyer where the staircase leads up to three bedrooms and one full bath. Gorgeous hardwood floors, unpainted woodwork, and original wood doors continue on the second floor. The updated bath is modern with lots of storage but still retains its character with the original claw foot tub and hexagonal tile floor. In the hallway the original linen closet offers charming details and practical space for extra bedding and towels. There are two goodsized bedrooms, plus a master with double closets. One is the walk-in closet only of your dreams—until now! The 19th Ward neighborhood is the largest residential enclave of the city, popular for its diversity, convenient location and excellent housing stock. The 19th Ward Community Association is incredibly involved, working to foster a strong neighborhood spirit though various community activities, from neighborhood gardens to a neighborhood newsletter. Recreation options abound with close proximity to the Genesee River and Erie Canal trails and pathways. This 1,532 square foot house is large with charm but small on price, listed at $74,900. For more information visit rochestercityliving.com/property/R194578 or contact Danielle Riley with Nothnagle Realtors at 585-339-3965. by Anika Lindquist Anika is a Landmark Society volunteer.

Fun [ news of the weird ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD
The Continuing Crisis
— Doctors Just Want to Have Fun: (1) Navy medical examiner Dr. Mark Shelly was notified of disciplinary action in July after admitting that he let his children handle a brain (and pose for photos with it) that he was transporting for autopsy to Portsmouth, Va. (2) A 15-year-old Swedish student, working at Malmo University Hospital on a “practical work-life” internship, was allowed by a doctor to make part of the incision for a cesarean section childbirth and to examine the patient vaginally. One alarmed cesarean patient alerted news media after reading about the orientation program in May and wondering if she had been a “hands-on” patient. — IRS agents, investigating tax-fraud suspect Rashia Wilson, 26, turned up “thousands” of identification numbers in a September home search in Tampa. Wilson had already laid down a challenge in May, when she wrote on Facebook: “I’m Rashia, the queen of IRS tax fraud. (I’m) a millionaire for the record. So if you think that indicting me will be easy, it won’t. I promise you. I won’t do no time, dumb (expletive unpublished).” The search also turned up a handgun, and since Wilson is a convicted felon (with 40 arrests), she was jailed, and denied bail in part because of the Facebook post. — Many visitors to San Francisco’s historic Castro neighborhood are shocked at the city’s culture of street nudism (virtually all by males). Only if the display is “lewd and lascivious” (with the purpose to arouse) is it illegal, but a September report in SF Weekly suggests that the nudity must be total -- that calling any attention at all to the genitals may suggest lewdness, such as by rings worn around the scrotum.
Way Too Many Apps: (1) The Swiss com-
pany Blacksocks offers an iPhone app that utilizes radio frequency identification chips inserted into socks so they can be automatically sorted. (2) The iPoo app, reported Wired magazine in November, “(l)ets you chat with your fellow defecators from the comfort of your own toilet.” (3) “In development” now, according to Harvard freshman Olenka Polak, is a “Code Red” app that creates an exchange network so that women and girls who find themselves unexpectedly spotting can locate an emergency source for a tampon or pad.
America now has about 700 pet “aftercare” facilities, providing funeral services to the nation’s companion animals, according to a September NBC News report. Oakey’s, in Roanoke, Va., performs 800 to 900 pet cremations annually and provides about 20 customers a year with pet caskets, part of the estimated $53 billion America spends on pets (higher than the Gross National Products of more than 100 countries). The basic charge of Heartland Pet Cremation of St Louis is $275 for a private cremation, including a “basic” urn and memorial video slideshow. (For the more upscale, other facilities offer deluxe urns, taxidermy, freeze-drying pets and creating a synthetic diamond out of pet ashes.)
People Different From Us
Gareth Lloyd, 49, admitted that he is the one who made about 5,800 random phone calls (over a 90-day period -- averaging 64 a day!) to people just to listen to their reactions when he told them that his penis was stuck in a household object (usually jars or a vacuum cleaner). A Flintshire, Wales, court sentenced Lloyd only to probation (with restrictions on telephone use).
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 30 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Crank up the excitement in your life. Travel, explore new pastimes and let spontaneity lead to good times and new acquaintances who share your dreams, hopes and wishes for the future. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Serious-minded, loyal action and dedication to your beliefs and concerns will attract someone with a similar mindset who is willing to go the distance and share your vision.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your desire for change and excitement will make it difficult for you to stick to one partner unless that person shares your values, outlooks and diverse number of interests. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Let your intuition lead the way when it comes to finding the right partner. You will instinctively gravitate toward someone who is intense, passionate and into you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ll attract partners who challenge you. Back away at the first sign of domination, control or desire to change the way you are. Avoid being overly generous or compromising. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Experience will be key regarding an affair of the heart. Let past relationships help you weed out individuals who aren’t likely to give back as much as you offer.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your eclectic vision and interests will attract lots of attention from partners with varied backgrounds. Enjoy the experience and the knowledge you gain, but be wary of your differences. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Express your desires and talk about your future plans. You’ll be surprised how much interest you get from potential partners wanting to be a part of your life and your future.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Secrets will be prevalent. Ask questions and make suggestions that will allow you to see what makes the partners who interest you tick. Avoid exaggeration and evasiveness. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t base love on looks alone. Take your time and see if you enjoy interests as well as humor and life goals with whomever you meet before becoming intimate.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’ll have trouble deciphering the mixed messages you are getting from potential partners. Back away from anyone being secretive. Ulterior motives are present. PISCES (Feb. 19-March. 20): Money may influence a personal decision. Don’t choose someone based on what that person has accumulated. A commitment can be made, but only if you are truly in love.
