Summer 2019 Preview Even though I’m pretty sure we still have one good snow storm on the horizon, on paper, it appears that summer just around the corner. While this means trips to the beach, days out at the ballpark, and yard games galore, it also means that another summer movie season is upon us. While I am looking forward to blockbusters like GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS (May 31), ROCKETMAN (May 31), THE LION KING (JULY 19), and THE KITCHEN (AUGUST 9), the three films below rest securely at the top of my list. TOY STORY 4 (Opening June 21) If there is any chance of a film coming close to the numbers that the latest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is going to do at the box office this summer, there is no doubt that it

will be TOY STORY 4. The latest venture from Pixar brings back (arguably) the most iconic characters from their catalog (with the possible exception of the FINDING NEMO crew) and there’s little doubt that folks will come out in droves. Though it certainly doesn’t come as a huge surprise that the franchise is getting another installment, I thought that the third film ended on such a perfectly sweet, emotionally draining (yet beautifully rewarding) note, that there really was no point in heading back to the land where Pixar began. At the same time, Buzz, Woody, Rex, Ham, Jessie, and their pals are so endearing, and so familiar and welcome, that it’s a joyous surprise to know that we’ll get to see them once again. The introductions of new characters worked in TOY STORY 2 (Jessie, Bullseye, Stinky Pete) and Toy Story 3 (Lotso and Ken) and it looks like there’s going to be a number of additions this time around as well. New cast members include Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks, and Jordan Peele (among others) and it will be entertaining to see how they all fit in with the litany familiar favorites. What’s particularly interesting, is that the TOY STORY brand has traveled well beyond the realm of mere family entertainment. The audience is no longer a collection of kids and the parents who tag along, but a sampling of all ages and demographics who show no shame in letting their laughter bellow, and their tears flow.

SPIDER-MAN: FAR AWAY FROM HOME (Opening July 2) We are only a few months removed from witnessing the devastating events of AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR, and as this article goes to print, the blockbuster is still raking in the cash at the box office. Standing as one of the biggest movie events in the history of the medium, you would think it would be difficult for any comic-book adventure to follow in its footsteps. Though the future of a few Marvel Cinematic Universe characters is certainly in question, there’s little doubt that Spidey will still be flying high. Standing as arguably the most beloved character in the MCU, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man is a likable, hilarious, relatable superhero who, along with Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther, likely stands as the future of the studio. With the intriguing addition of Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio, FAR FROM HOME will give us our first glimpse of the aftermath of INFINITY WAR, and will certainly provide an indication of where the MCU goes from here. It will also test the public’s interest in the continuation of the Marvel saga. While I doubt that SPIDERMAN will do AVENGERS numbers at the box-office, I do believe that it has a shot to be the biggest hit of the summer, and will

help solidify young Holland as a top-notch Hollywood talent. ONCE UPON A TIME … IN HOLLYWOOD (Opening July 26) Though it seems almost impossible to fathom, as of this October, it will have been 25 years since PULP FICTION was originally released. The incredible, groundbreaking, staggeringly entertaining film not only emerged as one of the greatest films of all time, but established Quentin Tarantino as an instant legend. His first film, RESERVOIR DOGS, was phenomenal in its own right, and then subsequent ventures such as KILL BILL VOLUMES 1 & 2, INGLORIOUS BASTERDS, and DJANGO UNCHAINED further cemented his status as a fearless, auteur filmmaker who defied conventions and obliterated boundaries. Initially rumored to be Tarantino’s “Charles Manson film,” early indications point to a much more subversive experience that explores the Hollywood Golden Age that came to an abrupt end in the late 1960’s. Though the heinous crimes perpetrated by Manson’s family is a specter that hangs over the story, much of the film follows Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) an aging TV star who still longs to find success, and Dalton’s stunt double and pal Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt.) The story of the two friends converge with the grim and sordid Quentin Tarantino tale of Dalton’s next door neighbor, Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie). Any Tarantino film immediately becomes one of the most anticipated productions of the year, and this one is certainly no exception. With the promise of dramatics, humor, and horror, it is bound to be original and controversial, as each and every one of his previous films has been. A true artist whose unparalleled productions tread the fine line between B-grade and brilliance, Tarantino is a Mount Rushmore candidate with cinematic style to spare.

Sounds Of Syracuse

by CHUCK SCHIELE

Jack Bocchino: Present! Jack was one of the first people to make me feel welcomed when I moved here and butted my way into the bustling music scene. As he approached me to say “hello,” and introduce himself, he had the look —yes there is a look— that told me he knew that I was new around here. We shook hands and chatted a bit. He had and still has the social grace of an ambassador. Then, I became aware that he was writing “this” column. And, I became a reader. And, by now as I see him out on the town —which is more than routinely— as a comfortable presence and positive energy in our scene. And that’s why I’m writing about Jack, this month.

As far as I’m concerned a music scene consists of two equal parts: Music makers and music lovers. Without either, the whole thing is just a great big “so-what.” And when my groups play out, the most important people in the room are not us guys in the band. It’s the people who come to see us. And I am very happy whenever I see Jack at shows. Hell, I bet if I went to five venues in one night, I’d see Jack at all of them. You, again. It wouldn’t matter the style or genre … he appears to dig it all. He’s grown to be such a part of it that he was honored very appropriately in this past year’s SAMMYs with a Lifetime Jack, camera in hand, out and about Achievement Award. I was particularly happy to see this happen because, even though Jack isn’t a musician Jack has been a contributing staple in the scene for a very long time. Thus, we owe a part of the success that the scene enjoys now to guys like Jack. And especially to Jack. Chuck Schiele: Thanks for doing this interview, Jack. It’s good to see you back in this column. Jack Bocchino:  Thank you, Chuck. In a way, I miss writing this column, but thought it could be better served being written by a musician. CS: For how long have you been following and supporting Syracuse music? JB:  First time … 1970. But, marriage and kids caused me to take a break around 1980 and happily spend time with the kids. Then I started to explore the local scene around 1995 with my 3 kids; each developing their own tastes in local and national musicians. I

was able to get them access to shows that were not considered “All-Ages” events when they were teens. Again, this was a highlight for me, to be able to share the local music scene with my kids. CS: Are you, yourself a musician? JB: No, Chuck. -Simply a music lover. ‘Had my opportunities to take lessons, but never took the leap. CS: What are your favorite aspects about the music in Syracuse? JB: Diversity. We have greats at every position in every genre. I’m happy to add that there seems to be an upswing in the diversity of venues as well. I love it all, but I do tend to gravitate to songwriters; especially younger ones. Give them a listen. They truly have much to say. CS: (Yes! What Jack said. Everybody go and discover a new songwriter.) When you were the writer for this column, what did you enjoy most about it? JB: The back stories. Musicians had so many reasons for wanting to do what they do, how they got there and the levels at which they chose to do it. I always felt that many continued on pg 6

Jack Bocchiino: Present! continued from pg 5 musicians in this town could take it to the next level, but they had their own personal reasons for staying where they’re at. For some, music is a part time thing. One person even said he was told by his Dad not to quit his day job, even though his talent and work ethic could surely carry him through a career in music. CS: Yeah, my Dad was a professional musician. He told me once, insightfully, how music was “a lousy way to starve.” (laughs) You recently received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2019 SAMMY’s. Tell us about it and what it means to you. JB: I was totally in disbelief and tried to resist the award. They stressed to me that it was not “one-note.” Not just for photography. Not just for my time writing this column. Not just for my attendance and attentiveness. But, a spirit that embodies a positivity about Syracuse and the music community. CS: Yup. JB: That was overwhelming, to say the least. CS: I’m always glad to see you out there, man. Even if you’re flirting with my chick. (laughs) Share with us a quicklist of the top ten artists from Syracuse that have become bookmarked into your brain over the years. JB: Oh my. Only 10? Well, I was a Dove groupie in 1970. (Can I list Larry Arlotta, Howie Bartollo, Rick Cua, Dave Hanlon, and Larry Serafini separately as 5 of my top 10?) Jamie Notarthomas and the Karen Savoca/Pete Heitzman duo because they ushered me back into local music, having seen them open for Greg Lake at a concert to benefit the Sara Anne Wood Rescue Foundation and made me realize the talent level in this town. Forgive me, but the rest of the list keeps changing, the longer I think about it. So here goes: Mike Powell Sara Bullis 22 State St.,Tully 315-696-5219 Stephen Douglas Wolfe Clothing Colin Aberdeen Toys Maureen Henesey Jewelry Edgar Pagan And every damn musician that I’ve taken the time to see more than once. (First time might have been out of curiosity, but if I reHousewares turned for a second listen, you are in my list of tops) Gift Certificates CS: Well, then, “Thank you.” I know you think music is important to our city and for our city. Why? JB:  It’s a mood-altering escape for me. For the city? It’s culture. It takes place in ways and in venues that allow audience members to gather with friends and strangers alike and have a commonality for a moment. With summer on the way, the festival season is

beginning. Some of these festivals have music as the main theme. And for some, the music is secondary. But, in any case, there will be no shortage of music lovers at the festivals. CS: If you could play an instrument, which one would you choose to play? JB: I mentioned that I had opportunities to take lessons. In one of those opportunities, my uncle offered to buy a sax from one of his good friends and my Dad offered to arrange for lessons. So, I’d have to say saxophone. CS: What advice might you have for up-and-coming artists? JB: Take it all in. You might be committed to a genre, but get out and listen to other styles of music. You might be young and want to seek out the knowledge and wisdom of the elders in the scene, but don’t discount the knowledge and wisdom of some of the younger musicians. They have much to offer. CS: What advice might you have for up-and-coming music fans? JB: Ha. Take it all in. Don’t get hung up on genre titles or that the age and life experiences of the musicians are similar to those of yourself. Take it all in. CS: What’s in your music future? JB: Being out most nights listening to music has worked well for me. So, I see no reason to change that in the future. Admittedly, I’ve been gravitating to earlier shows and fortunately we have venues that cater to that. CS: Well, I will look forward to seeing you out there, my friend. And as far as I can tell, so will everyone else. Thank you, so much, for the part you play in this music scene. And thanks for doing this interview. JB: Thank you, Chuck. My pleasure.

In addition to all of these successes, there was also a mini-series that aired this couldn’t be further that is one of the best that I can remember in recent memory. Unrelentingly intense and from the truth. Right from shockingly unsettling, CHERNOBYL took a look at one of the worst man made disasters the opening minutes, the to befall the planet. production highlights the The first time we see the explosion at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, it is from sheer absurdity of the blind a distance. It’s April in 1986, and from the window of Lyudmilla Ignatenko’s (Jessie faith and foolishness of the Buckley) apartment, we see the night sky light up. Shortly thereafter, a phone rings, and Russian regime. Even in Lyudmilla’s firefighter husband Vasily (Adam Nagaitis,) gets called in to assist.

Meanwhile, in the control room of the facility, Anatoly Dyatlov (Paul Ritface the facts at hand, and ter) attempts to keep his employees calm, and the fire contained.

Without visual confirmation of what has happened, he continues to accident. While lethal chemicals flow into the atmosphere, he and his bureaucratic counterparts blindly insist that everything is under control. When Valery Legasov (Jared Harris) gets a call stating there had been an incident at Overlooking Beautiful Otisco Lake Chernobyl, he is immediately concerned. After reviewing the summary of the incident itself, he instantly realizes that the hours that had unfurled since the incident had resulted in unimaginable contamination throughout the area. Despite the many bureaucrats, including the head of the Bureau for Fuel and Energy Boris Shcherbina (Stellan Skarsgard) that everything appeared to be under control, Legasov insisted that immediate action needed to be taken.

Dining Out by Kerilyn E. Micale

Picture this: You are outside under a pergola, sipping on a delightful glass of wine and snacking on a delicious charcuterie board. The sun is shine and a warm summer breeze is blowing gently on your face. You can sit at the cozy table or move into a comfy Adirondack chair near the fire pit. From either location you will be surrounded by a beautiful view of the trellises of bountiful vines that are growing the grapes in the wine you are enjoying. Now, does this sound like heaven or what? If you think you’ll have to go on vacation to get this experience think again! All you need to do is head over to the Greenwood Winery & Bistro at 6474 Collamer Road in East Syracuse. They are open Wednesday and Thursday from 11:30am to 8pm, Friday from 11:30am to 9pm, and Saturday from 2pm to 9pm. Be sure to stop by every Friday May through September to check out some of the areas greatest bands perform live! Kyle and I arrived at Greenwood Winery & Bistro on a sunny Thursday evening and we were immediately greeted and seated in the Bar area with a view of the grape vines and fire pit. Since we were at a winery we decided to order a flight so that we could sample several vintages. With so many great options to choose from we asked our friendly and informative server for suggestions and went from there! We tried the Seyval Blanc (a little and crisp white with attractive aromas of apricots, peaches and nectarines, R.S. 1%), Vidal Blanc (a slightly sweet and light white with a fruity finish and sweet grapefruit and pineapple aromas R.S. 1.6%), Baco Noir (A deeply pigmented wine, fruit-forward, with aromas of black fruits and caramel R.S. .3%), and Perplexity 2013 (an complex, yet refreshing red with a harmony of flavors including hints of blueberry, black cherry, spices, chocolate and vanilla. R.S. 08%.) We also absolutely had to try a glass of their delicious Collamere, which is their estate grown blend of five different varieties of American and French American hybrid including The Greenwood Greens Seyval, Riesling, Diamond,

A beautiful view, a relaxing setting, and a flight of wine.. what could be better? Traminette and La Crescent blends. R.S. 1% and ohhh sooo good! Either we made great selections or, more likely, every wine at Greenwood Winery is delightful because we enjoyed ever sip! We started our meal with Greenwood Greens, their take on a CNY favorite made with escarole, hot cherry peppers, large pieces pancetta and topped with bread crumbs and aged parmesan. This dish has the perfect balance of flavor and spice and it is sure to please any “Greens” lover! We also couldn’t pass up an order of their Crispy Calamari, a gigantic serving of fresh, hand breaded calamari lightly fried and served with a side

I would also note that the steamed clams were very popular at other tables and they looked scrumptious! We were then served a loaf of warm, baked bread with a fantastic crispy crust and olive oil dipping sauce. Fair warning, you will be tempted to fill up on bread but try to resist the temptation because your entrée will also be amazing! Kyle ordered Bistro Shrimp (six large shrimp sautéed in a garlic butter wine sauce and served over angel hair pasta) for his entrée. This dish was packed with flavor and he completely cleaned his plate! I ordered the Linguine with Clam Sauce (Fresh chopped baby clams, simmered in a garlic & white wine cream sauce topped with little neck clams). This dish was divine! The clams were cooked and seasoned absolutely perfectly. This may be the best linguine with clam sauce I’ve ever had (sorry mom!)! We were both stuffed but decided to split two freshly made truffles and we took home a deliciously perfect piece of lemon berry mascarpone cake! Greenwood Winery and Bistro is an unexpected oasis, just minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the city! Their serene and relaxing atmosphere is the perfect getaway without having to actually go anywhere. In addition to their beautiful bar (featuring a mouthwatering display of their hard crafted dessert) and dining room they have outdoor seating.

Chernobyl continued from pg 8 quickly understand that a national nightmare is unfolding, and in order to save their beloved country, many men (including themselves) will likely have to die. As smoke, ash, and chemicals relentlessly pour into the atmosphere, they are forced to formulate a plan based on hope and sacrifice, in an attempt to limit the fallout and save millions in the process. The mini-series is broken into five spectacular installments, and is easily one of the best productions in film and/or television this year. Though the story is a part of the not-so-distant past, it is based on a cataclysmic event that has somewhat faded from memory. While it was difficult to track and exact death toll that was directly attributed to the disaster —the Russian government officially stated there were only 31 deaths— whatever that number may be, it could have been infinitely higher. The majority of the characters in the series were based on real life individuals, and many of these men and women are to thank for limiting the damage as much as they did. Had men like Dyatlov continued to bury their heads in the radioactive sand, millions more could have been affected. The entire continent could have been affected. It’s staggering to imagine, and almost impossible to comprehend. RATED: TV-MA CHERNOBYL feels stunningly authentic in terms of visuals and storylines, and each and every performance is award worthy. And, though RUN TIME: 60-72 minute episodes there is no denying its brilliance, it’s not exactly an easy series to watch. Beyond the infuriating actions of those in charge, much of what unfolds on screen is absolutely horrifying. Presenting an extremely graphic and unflinching look at what happened to the first responders GENRE: Drama, History who did everything within their power to save their country, the images that unfold are impossible to forget. The sacrifice these men and STARRING: Jared Harris, Stellan women made in the face of limitless pain and agony is simply staggering. You see men who are literally dissolving before your eyes, and Skarsgård, Jessie Buckley you can feel their burning flesh from your seat at home.

Business of Interest by NANCY ROBERTS

Ponchito’s Taqueria & Cantina Ponchito’s Taqueria & Cantina 3rd Location Opening Soon! 1022 W. Fayette Street, Corner of Geddes Some years ago, Frank Mignacca went on a trip, visiting Belize and Guatemala. On that trip, he learned, as his bus tour stopped at the many roadside food trucks and shacks popular in Mexico and Central America, that “Mexican” food wasn’t quite what we Americans are used to. Among other things, until you have sampled the cuisine fresh, with local produce and un-processed, no-preservative meats and fish, you really haven’t tasted its rich, complex flavors.  With 10 children —5 boys and 5 girls— heading for working age and a dream to open an eatery, his first thought, he said, was “Open a pizza place. 2007, we were ready to go.”  The trip, and the food, changed his mind. “It was when I saw the way they made breakfast, Mexican style, with the fresh soft tacos, beans, eggs. I wanted to try that.” And his first restaurant turned out to be a taquiera, something along the lines of Central American fast food. “Mission style,” Mignacca explained, “is as close as we can come to the ‘real thing,’ since we can’t get the same fresh ingredients you’d find there. They call it ‘gringo food,’ but that’s in no way to suggest it isn’t delicious.” In fact, Mignacca has found, in his travels to Central and South America, that food is one of the things that most quickly and happily blends cultures, and introduces us to one another. “In Peru,” he told us,”there was a time when they were building railroads, and a lot of Chinese came over to work on the construction. They brought their cooking style with them, and now they have a kind of fried rice there, for example, that is how they would make fried rice at home, but using the ingredients they could get in Peru. It’s good – very good.” Mignacca’s goal, then, became to make the best Mexican dishes he could, using the ingredients found locally, and tailored to a Central New Yorker’s palette. In 2007 he opened his first taquiera at 3800 New Court Ave. Several years later he added a second

Ponchitos, more than just Mexican Food! location at 410 W. Seneca Turnpike, and then a food truck for events, and catering for private parties. “It’s all your favorites —tacos, burritos, quesadillas— for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And now with this third restaurant, we also have a cantina.” A cantina, he explained, serves all three meals but also serves adult beverages – so domestic and imported bottled beers, local drafts, and specialty drinks with a south-ofthe-border style will be featured at the cantina’s bar. Speaking of the bar, Mignacca indicated the metal-sided structure over at the side of the comfortably spacious room. He proudly showed us the bar top, a patterned surface continued on pg 15

Beer Education continued from pg 12 more advanced classes including Recipe Development, and Water Chemistry. Another class that is offered for anyone, at any level, is the “Brewer for a Day” class, which literally runs from 10am to 5pm. You’ll spend an entire day being hands-on with the brewers during one of their actual brewing days, gaining behind the scenes knowledge and experiencing every step in the brewing process along the way through hearing, smelling, seeing and tasting, from beginning to end. The cost for the day is $100 per person or $175 per couple and includes lunch, pints and/or flights, and a half-gallon of the finished beer product when it’s finished fermenting and ready for consumption. The Salt City Brew Club (SCBC) is “an organization of Home Brewers and beer aficionados in the general Syracuse area” who’s purpose is to “share ideas, recipes, techniques, and stories all in the effort of helping each member in brewing his or her own best beer.” Members typically meet each second Tuesday of the month at 7pm at IBU Brewing. Meetings are structured and have three parts consisting of a Lecture/Discussion, the Style of the Month, and a Tasting. Further detailed information about the meetings can be found on their website at www.saltcitybrew.org. SCBC membership information can also be located there as well. If you’re all-in on forging a career in the craft beer industry, you might want to pursue formal education in order to make that leap, and look no further than SUNY Morrisville, located nearby in Morrisville, NY. The college has a brand-spanking-new and still-evolving brewing curriculum and boasts a Brewing Institute program at the Copper Turret Restaurant & Brewhouse. This new Bachelor’s degree program concentrates in the areas of brewing science and technology, agricultural marketing, and food science. The curriculum includes 10 brewing courses, 4 practicum classes, several other courses involved in the brewing process and science of brewing and at the very end, students will pursue an internship for an entire semester at a brewery. Just last year, in 2018, SUNY Morrisville was named the Best Beer-Brewing College in North America at the U.S. Open College Beer Championship! During this event, SUNY Morrisville agricultural business development BBA students Mary Cosenza, of Colden, New York, and Josh Alley, of Liverpool, New York, earned a gold medal for their Bavarian German-Style Pilsner named “The Crop,” a silver medal for their Madison County Hopped IPA, “The Arsenal,” and a bronze for “Belgian Draft Horse,” a Belgian-style Tripel. SUNY Morrisville and their program directors pride themselves as an agricultural college by using 90-100% of malts and hops grown directly in Madison County, where the college is located, to produce these award-winning beers. Other semi-local colleges and universities that offer brewing and brewing-related degrees and certificates include: Schenectady County Community College, Niagara County Community College, Erie County Community College, SUNY Cobleskill, Hartwick College Center for Craft Food & Beverage, The Culinary Institute of America: Hyde Park, Cornell University, & Paul Smith’s College. Whether it be on the small scale or at a grandiose level, learning about craft beer and brewing has never been easier to reach out, grab, and make your own. Cheers to beer education!

Ponchitos Taqueria & Cantina continued from pg 13 done all in pennies. “The bright ones are after 1982,” he said, “and the dark ones, they’re older, they’re all copper.” It had been his collection, and one of the renovators from Home Headquarters suggested using them as a unique way of decorating an otherwise utilitarian surface. The effect is striking, and fun. If you have ever visited the location in any of its previous incarnations, you’ll be surprised to find a completely renovated space that will offer take out or table service, and that is now a bright spot of color on the near west side. Your adventure will begin as soon as you park —a beautiful mural featuring faces, birds, and a tropical sky covers one wall, and a broad front deck will welcome you— and perhaps serve as summertime seating in months to come. “I went to Boston,” added Mignacca,” and saw Anna’s Taquiera. That was a real inspiration.” A staple of all Ponchito’s locations is take-out and delivery. “That was one of the things that made me think of a taquiera instead of a pizza place,” said Mignacca. “When you think of getting take-out or delivery, it’s pizza or Chinese. I thought, why not Mexican? So we made some tacos, three of them, put them in a delivery type styrofoam container, and waited a while, then tasted them to see if the flavor held up. And it was good, very good!” At this latest Ponchito’s, partly because you’ll be able to sit down and eat as well as take out, Mignacca plans to expand the menu beyond the menu to some specialty sandwiches and dishes. “We’ve got a sandwich we call El Chapo. It’s pork with grilled pineapple, jalapenos, sauteed spinach and grilled red onion, a special sauce. And we’ll have Cuban sandwiches, burgers, specials, other things I discovered when I traveled.” Not long ago, Mignacca held a hiring day, and made it a priority to hire from the neighborhood. A meet and greet will be held with the new staff shortly, and not long before this article goes to print, the town will welcome its newest restaurant with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. “From that point on, 7 of my kids will be working in the business, and my oldest son will be running this place. My plan is to relax and enjoy, and we hope you all will, too!”

My Mind To Yours

by DEBRA MERRYWEATHER

Love and Power From 2005 until 2009, in the village of Manitoba, Bolivia, a group of Mennonite men raped and sexually abused at least 130 Mennonite girls and women within their tightknit religious community. Among the reasons the assaults continued for so long is that the girls and women being assaulted didn’t know they were being assaulted while they were being assaulted. The rapists anesthetized the girls and women, aged 3 to 60, with a belladonna spray normally used to sedate livestock. When the victims could no longer ignore the evidence of sex, church leaders attributed the women’s suspicions to overactive imaginations, demonic attacks and ghost sex. Mythology, world religion and anthropology suggest that when confronted with human behavior and natural phenomena people can’t or don’t want to explain, people blame evil spirits, demons, and people from other cultures for causing trouble in the neighborhood. Heroic war stories grab more attention than lectures about public policy. Love’s passion plays better than love’s patience. Truth can be more disturbing than fiction and fictional tales generally end with some resolution a reader or viewer can perceive at a distance from themselves. Fictional characters reveal their characters and sometimes ours. I did not watch Game of Thrones until this season; still, what I saw resonated with my

thoughts about myth, history and interpersonal dynamics. In what I did see, I heard characters theorize that duty is the end of love, and love is the end of duty. Protagonists argued the risks and benefits of gaining power through instilling love or fear in their followers. And, spoiler alert here, after the final battle between Cersei Lannister and Danaerys Targaryen for the Iron Throne, and after the intrafamilial love/duty conflict between Danaerys and Jon Snow, it was Danaerys’ fire-breathing dragon, Drogon, who, left to its own instincts, and with autonomy, did the absolutely best thing. Many religions teach that we are supposed to love and forgive. Game of Thrones seems to ask, is dutiful love really love? And, when forgiveness is Belladonna compelled, is forgiveness really forgiveness? Like the writers of Game of Thrones, writer Miriam Toews delves into these questions and other questions concerning power in her novel Women Talking. Women Talking is fictional imagining of what might occur if illiterate Mennonite rape victims, born into a religion that requires that they obey and forgive, decided to demand a safer and better life for themselves and their children in their village or else start anew elsewhere. Women Talking maps the evolving autonomous consciousness of women, some of whom wonder if they themselves are not simply livestock, in a cult-like society nestled in present day South America. The women meet in secret in a hay loft to avoid the attention of their rule following

religious community. Because the women can’t read or write, the women enlist the help of a once shunned Mennonite male to take notes for the record. The note-taker, August, teaches young men in the community to read and write so they can conduct business in the outside world. August has his own story, a story which looms large in the village’s power dynamics. Ona’s story also looms large. Ona is pregnant by a rapist, suffers from morning sickness during the meetings, clearly anticipates that her child, once born, will be taken from her likely to be raised by the father’s family, and still believes love is the answer. Because Ona is unmarried and pregnant, one of Miriam Toews author of Women Talking the married rape victims denounces Ona as a “whore.” In their effort to achieve consensus, the women organize their options under pictorial headings symbolizing three possibilities. A picture of a horizon symbolizes staying and doing nothing; a woman and man facing each other with knives means “fight,” and the rear end of a horse symbolizes leaving. August sees that a horizon can also symbolize moving toward change and that the rear end of a horse could symbolize watching someone else leave. August feels conflicted about interjecting his thoughts and experience; the women disagree about whether they should trust his input. What the women ultimately decide to do reflects the sort of quick efficiency demonstrated by some characters in the series finale of Game of Thrones. The times, ideology and gender politics of Game of Thrones and Women Talking differ greatly. The politics of individual people within individual families within individual communities all over the map, despite our connectedness, seems to differ greatly. The end games of Game of Thrones and Women Talking both suggest that while individual stories end, the interrelated love and power struggles continue to unfold. Nothing is resolved once and for all happily ever after. We keep talking.

Beauty & Fashion by ERIN REIMEL

Keeping Beauty Simple This Summer Lately I can’t scroll through Instagram or walk to work without seeing girls with super harsh contours, highlights you can see from Mars, and matte liquid lipsticks that look as dry as the Sahara. The makeup-obsessed have officially gone Kardashian crazy and while there is never a look I won’t try once or even a dozen times, I am not feeling the cakey trend this summer. As the sun starts beating down on me, my main concern is having a good SPF and makeup that is not going to melt as soon as I leave the comfort of my own AC. As a beauty girl I do tend to wear quite a bit of makeup, but I’ve decided to replace a few of my key products with summer-friendly alternatives that won’t leave me wishing there was still three feet of snow on the ground. If you’re in need of some tips to simplify your look this summer, I’ve got you covered:

Skin

Replace your foundation with a tinted moisturizer or opt for no coverage at all.

Foundation can feel so uncomfortable when it’s just sitting on top of your skin and by the end of a hot and humid day you can start to look like your face has melted off. If you’re not ready to ditch the coverage all together, a tinted moisturizer can be your best choice for a successful heat-proof look. Just swipe a thin layer over your face and it’ll sink into your skin and feel totally weightless. Make sure you’re still wearing SPF to protect your skin from those harmful rays!

Eyes

Ditch the liner and go for an all-over shimmer. I’m a huge fan of the smokey shadow and black cat-eye liner but when I’m sweating all the time I just don’t want to worry about if my shadow is creasing or if my liquid liner is flaking off in the heat. Instead just grab a fluffy shadow brush and a shimmery shadow that matches your skin tone and apply it all over your lid. It’s quick and easy while still looking put-together enough for any occasion.

Cheeks

Do away with the contouring and give yourself a flushed blush. Heavy powders feel awful when you’re out in the sun and there’s no need to look perfectly sculpted at all times. Give yourself a break and pick up a creamy blush that matches the color you skin has when you naturally blush. Something soft and simple is perfect. Pat it into your skin and you’re left with a natural look that gives you a healthy glow.

FOREVER YOUNG

Lips

at LaFace Salon 3140 Erie Blvd, East Dewitt, NY 13214

Forget the liquid lippies and opt for something moisturizing. As a self-proclaimed lipstick addict I find myself constantly reaching for the most pigmented products but when the weather is getting into the 80s I just want to swipe something hydrating on and go. Try a lip oil or a sheer lipstick with vitamin E for extra moisture without sacrificing color. Lipstick is the finishing touch to any look but you also want something lowmaintenance and comfortable in the summer.

Around the Green by J. BRIAN KEITH

Finding The Perfect Golf Clubs The following article lists some simple, informative tips that will help you have a better experience with golf clubs. If you think any old golf clubs will do, you haven’t been on the course trying to compensate for a club that’s simply too long or two short. Besides making a shambles of your golf game, ill-fitting clubs can leave your body aching after the game. If you’re spending all your time compensating, you probably aren’t shooting your best or even enjoying the time on the course. So does that mean that you’re going to spend hundreds of extra dollars on a set of clubs with a custom fit? While custom clubs are one answer, most people can find what they need from a well-stocked golf store. But there are some things to keep in mind. Length of the club is important, but it’s not everything. The pros say that the size of your golf club’s grip should be comfortable for your hands. That’s why clubs for younger players and women often have a smaller grip. If you should

decide to go for a set of custom clubs, what is the process? It’s nothing like being measured for a suit. The point is not only to make the club reach from the point of your outstretched hand to the ground, but also to make the most of your body – your strengths and your weaknesses. So don’t go for your custom golf club fitting session expecting to spread your arms and stand still while someone uses a tape measure. A good custom fit will probably take place both inside and outside. The best custom fit clubs will be tailored so that your swing is taken into account. Sound expensive? Possibly. While some major golf club manufacturers will charge (dearly) for the actual “fitting,” many offer up this service for free, with your commitment to buy clubs from that company. While custom clubs are more expensive than clubs purchased “off the shelf” from your local golf supplier or even from an outlet store or individual, the results will probably show themselves right away on the golf course. Consider the shots that you may have been compensating for all your years of playing golf. If you’re taller or shorter than the “typical” golfer, or even if you have continued on pg 21

Finding the Perfect Golf Clubs continued from pg 19 some muscle strengths or weaknesses that make your game a bit more of a challenge, custom clubs can help you compensate. But what if you want the clubs immediately? Do you have to go with “off the shelf” clubs? Actually, many manufacturers who provide custom golf clubs promise delivery within just a few days, a week or two at most. Among the few negatives of custom golf clubs is the potential for offering them up as a surprise gift and the potential for resale. But at the same time, the golfer who is going to receive the custom clubs will likely gladly give up the “surprise” and most who go to this expense and trouble aren’t going to offer the clubs for sale. Only you can decide whether custom golf clubs are a good investment for you. If you’re going to spend a bundle of money for an awesome set of clubs, you may very well take the extra step to get custom clubs. There’s a lot to understand about golf clubs.

The Write Stuff by NANCY ROBERTS

Living the Braveheart Life Finding the Courage to Follow Your Heart Finding the Courage to Follow Your Heart By Randall Wallace “As long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under English rule. It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours, that we are fighting, but for freedom – for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself.” - Declaration of Arbroath 1320 Scotland “Fight and you may die. Run, and you’ll live … at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they’ll never take … OUR FREEDOM!” - Braveheart - Screenplay written by Randall Wallace

The conceit of the book is that the life lessons Randall Wallace offers us are all drawn from his insights (real or imagined) into William Wallace – with whom he shares a surname, if not a traceable kinship. Before the film project is even a twinkle in Mel Gibson’s eye, Randall travels to Scotland where he quickly learns that Wallace is considered by many as one of the greatest, if not the greatest legendary hero of the nation. He also notes that Wallace and Robert the Bruce —first and much revered King of the Scots— appeared to have lived at the same time. The story also goes that The Bruce betrayed Wallace, yet he goes on to become a great king. Was there something, he wonders, about Wallace that inspired transformation? How do we become better people, he asks, and what, who, can bring out the best in us? This “best” is what Wallace calls “the Braveheart life.” In Randall Wallace’s telling of it, William’s story begins with a father who dies when William is just a boy. But his uncle becomes the Since 1972 mentor, the parent, that William loses while still Fine Dining young. Someone, writes the author, must teach us – be the parents, the concerned elders who show us “How Make Your Father’s Day Reservations Now! to use this” (our head) and “this” (our swords, which is to say our talents). With these weapons, we’ll be prepared to handle the Let us take care of your rehearsal dinner inevitable: our wounds.  or small wedding reception with our award Another telling event for

It’s difficult to watch a film like Braveheart, hear a speech like that, and not be at least a bit thrilled. And while, as most readers of my book reviews will know, my first choice genre isn’t self-help, it was definitely intriguing to be given a book written by the man who wrote those stirring words, and who now undertook to write a book on living a better, nobler, more courageous life. I tend to read such books with a bit of dismissal: oh yeah? Show me how well you lived your life before telling me how I should live mine! And the writer doesn’t shy away from admitting that his own life, while in some ways enchanted (he got to write  Braveheart, didn’t he?) was in most other ways ordinary (a small town Tennessee boy with a divorce in his future) and full of the heartaches we generally experience. But if you examine some of the rest of his oeuvre: We Were Soldiers, Pearl Harbor, Secretariat and Heaven is for Real, you’ll see a couple of themes running through them – heroes, faith, spirit and inspiration. And because he has clearly spent so much continued on pg 25 time dwelling upon the people who challenged those qualities, perhaps, est Voted B tore I thought, he’d picked up ok S some wisdom.

Preventive Medicine by DR. BARRY

Down On Deodorants Well I seem to be going through a personal care phase … last month I commented on sunscreen and this month its deodorants. In full disclosure I have always avoided antiperspirants. -Most deodorants are combined with an antiperspirant but I have always

want to stink up the place. As I have studied more about the very chemical nature of our existence and the vast array of chemical reactions that occur in every cell in our body continuously I have naturally become more aware of how the chemicals in our environment can screw up these reactions. Every chemist will tell you the end product depends on the exact chemical makeup of the reagents – the amount, the purity and the conditions

Besides the antimicrobial chemicals most deodorants contain parabens (listed under the names butylparaben, ethylparaben, isobutylparaben, methylparaben, and propylparaben). Parabens are a known endocrine disruptor and can produce adverse developmental, reproductive, neurological, and immune effects. thought the idea of blocking natural sweat was unhealthy and I was probably troubled by the not proven link between the aluminum in the antiperspirant and Alzheimer’s so I have used only the deodorant for years. If you know me you know I am a sweater – just ask the guys at the gym or the dojo. Get the poisons out is my motto but I really didn’t

under which the reactions take place. Every time we add strange chemicals to our bodies we are affecting natural processes. -’Nothing new or controversial in that statement. Have you looked at the ingredients in your toothpaste … your shampoo … or your skin care products? Since I am a Neanderthal I don’t use skin care products but I do use toothpaste and until recently have used deodorant. I say “until recently” because I have stopped with the deodorant several months ago and no one seems to have noticed. I had thought my wife might notice but even she has not commented. That says something about the state of my hygiene or the state of my marriage. I do shower at least once a day so that helps. My staff would probably tell me if I were stinking up the office and they have not said anything either. Why have I given up on rubbing or spraying my armpits? After all 95% of the population uses deodorants and it’s an 18 billion dollar a year industry. I worry about the chemicals. I worry about the Aluminum. Even if it doesn’t cause Dementia it does build up in your body and is difficult to eliminate and can affect your bones and kidneys. Why do you think the label says “check with your doctor before using if you have kidney issues”? The main antimicrobial chemicals used are either triclosan continued on pg 41

Living the Braveheart Life continued from pg 23 each of us is what Randall Wallace calls The Moment, or the Calling. The time when we figure out what it is we were meant to do, to be. It may be great, it may be humble, it may be something we would never have expected. Sometimes, he adds, it is our friends —our brothers and sisters— who help us reach our understanding of who we are and what we are meant to do, to be, to become. They may come to us as literal brothers and sisters, or as companions for a time, but whomever they are – they are there for us, and we are there for them. If you saw the film, you know that William Wallace had several friends of different kinds, each helped shape him into the man he needed to be, and he in turn, helped them along their path. Friends, then, are another essential part of living the Braveheart life. Much of what Randall Wallace offers isn’t new, precisely, but because he has embodied it in the study of an historic, and heroic, figure, it is easier to actually see the challenges, the risks, the virtues, playing out. So honor, self-knowledge, failure and recovery, faithfulness, purpose, even humor – these things have been displayed for us many times and in many ways as qualities and experiences we should seek to live our lives to the fullest.  But it never hurts to revisit them from time to time – and this time, with a Scottish accent.

It is hard to believe it has been 40 years. I met the D.A. long before Bill Fitzpatrick became the District Attorney. He and his friend, Mike Price, recently out of law school, befriended me at a time when such friendships meant a lot and helped me to get back on a good path. It was a difficult time for me and there was no reason to befriend me except out of clear kindness. I mention this up front so as I proceed you will have an idea the kind of leadership that

What I hope to convey is that when you are writing the truth about one of the talented few, the truth is humbling.

William J. Fitzpatrick continued from pg 26 you get to know Bill Fitzpatrick you soon find that he is in charge of what he does and is a force and fairness and right are clearly seen. The mighty know this and have come to understand that right and wrong will be equal determinants for rich and poor. The DA does not fear power nor resentful repercussion, political or otherwise, from unjust thinking. I offer the following for you to apply to this kind of expertise: When one possesses extraordinary leadership ability an amazing high value exponential course of positive events falls into place that touches every segment of their mission and charge. Extraordinary leaders choose extraordinary individuals to work with them. In this case an entire staff of extraordinary elite individuals are in place. This in turn promotes an elite and contagious professionalism wherever they go. The end result is an entire staff of elite professionals like no other. This has taken place in the Onondaga County District

Currently, he serves as a member of the NDAA Executive Committee. New York State Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman appointed D.A. Fitzpatrick in 2010 to the New York State Permanent Sentencing Commission.

Attorney’s Office resulting in one of the finest of its kind in the United States. This exponential transfer of expertise from the District Attorney, to his Staff, to the Community is an absolutely awesome representation of one of the talented few and every individual that has an encounter with The District Attorney’s Office is the beneficiary of justice and fairness at its’ finest. His office is indeed a beacon and Bill Fitzpatrick has shared this expertise over the years. I urge you to read his biography at https://da.ongov.net/bio/. It is a brief, yet extraordinary read well worth your time. Here are few excerpts: In 2007 Bill Fitzpatrick was appointed New York State Representative to the National District Attorney’s Association. He was sworn in as President in July 2015. Currently, he serves as a member of the NDAA Executive Committee. New York State Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman appointed D.A. Fitzpatrick in 2010 to the New York State Permanent Sentencing Commission.

The DA is also extremely active in the community and has been involved with Vera House Foundation (a local shelter for battered women), McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Center, the Ronald McDonald House, the Make-A-Wish Foundation and several other community groups. I would be remiss if I did not mention Bill Fitzpatrick’s son, Danny. I have had the opportunity to come to know Danny Fitzpatrick. Danny is the Town Supervisor of Lafayette, N.Y. Over the years I have had the opportunity to witness the integrity and extraordinary efficiency of Danny. The expertise he demonstrates in the Town of Lafayette clearly reflects he is his Father’s son. One of the talented few. Like his Dad, as you come to know him, you realize a rare and special individual is in the arena and we the people, are the beneficiaries. As Danny has come into his own, he will continue to be a rising star ensuring that posterity will also be the beneficiary of the justice and quality of his Dad. There are too few such individuals in the arena. It is to us to recognize, especially the talented few. It is to us to give them “The Torch, to hold it high,” so we can rest in trusted hands. It is with great regard for the District Attorney, and appreciation for his dedication to “right” in its finest sense, that I urge you to vote for Bill Fitzpatrick for District Attorney of Onondaga County in November.

Be Successful at Eating Healthy One of the biggest issues people have with food – is how they look at it. For years, my clients have told me how difficult it is to eat healthy. Now I always try to be compassionate when having these conversations, but I just don’t agree. Nowadays if you want to eat healthy, it’s really not that hard! The quote “abs are made in the kitchen – not in the gym” fits perfectly into this paragraph. We know that most Americans have a weight problem because of a bad diet, and as a result a lot of health issues. It seems like everywhere we look someone we know is struggling with their weight. Obesity continues to be an epidemic as we are seeing a steady increase in heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and other health related disorders. The truth is, most of us could stand to lose a few pounds. So how do we learn to look at food differently? How do we learn to make better food choices? Here are a few tips to get you started.

with healthier ingredients. It may take a week or two to adjust, but before you know it, it will become a habit.

Make “On-the-Go” Healthy

As parents, we often think that healthy food for our children can’t be “on-the-go”, but that’s not necessarily true. Keep bottled water and nonperishable snacks such as organic Start with small, easy changes to keep yourself motivated as your work towards your animal crackers, whole-grain pretzels, raisins and nuts on hand at all times. This way goals. For example, if you’re trying to cut down on soda, and drink more water, substitute there will be no excuse to stop at a fast food restaurant. water once a day for soda. If you can’t live without chips, look for a no salt alternative

Plan Ahead

The decision to eat healthier must involve the whole family. That means that you, as a parent, have to commit to new eating habits as well. A recent study found that children whose parents weighed more and had a higher body mass index (BMI), weighed more and were more likely to have a higher BMI themselves. Your family’s eating plan should be specific as to what you plan to do, such as eat at home more often or have more vegetables with each meal. Decide ahead of time how you will keep track of your progress and make sure there is a reward with each goal that is met.

Make It Fun

Healthy eating doesn’t have to be boring! The trick is to make it fun, diverse and age appropriate. There are so many healthy recipes out there that taste good! Choose recipes that the whole family can participate in making. It’s a great way to spend time with the kids and familiarize them with the kitchen!

A Family Affair

of

Involve the whole family in the food planning, purchasing, and preparing process. Take them on a trip to the grocery store or farmers’ market. If you get them started young it will become a part of their lifestyle as they get older.

We Offer

Make a Shopping List

Never go to the store empty handed! Before you leave home, make a list or better yet take a picture of your refrigerator and pantry. What are you missing? Is there anything that you can change to a healthier option?

Eat from the Rainbow

If you are making a pasta dish, double the number of veggies you throw in. This will fill you up with good nutrients and prevent your dishes from being so calorie dense. Choose vibrant colored veggies and fruit. The more color, the more antioxidants.

Use Smaller Plates

Plates seem to get bigger and bigger! If the plate is smaller, you can finish everything on there without feeling guilty. You can also avoid taking in too many calories.

Out of Sight, Out of Mind

Keep all junk food out of sight. If you don’t see it you won’t be tempted to eat it! Better yet just don’t bring it into the house! Keep healthy food like a bowl of fresh fruit, sliced veggies, or a dish of unsalted nuts in the kitchen at all times. You will be amazed at how much this helps you cut down on the amount of junk food you eat. Food prep and quick easy meals is key to your success. Prep your food weekly and be diligent about making meals easily assessable. Here are a few ideas:

Droning On About a year ago, this column featured a story about the NYS Fair Drone Film Festival, a relatively new undertaking that aims to bring the wonders of drone filming and films about what drones can do to New York State via the NYS Fair as its showcase. The field of drone technology has nowhere to go but – up, of course! Central New York is a hub of drone activity, largely due to a state program that designated a 50-mile corridor between Syracuse and Griffiss International Airport in Rome, NY, the “Drone Corridor.” Within this corridor, strategic investments will accelerate industry growth by supporting emerging uses of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) in key industries, including agriculture and forest management,

transportation and logistics, media and film development, utilities and infrastructure, and public safety. The area was already populated with technology firms that were poised to fly: Raytheon, SRC/ Gryphon Sensors being two you’ll no doubt recognize, but new industries and ventures are taking off all the time. NUAIR, The Northeast UAS Airspace Integration Research Alliance, along with 200+ partners, works to advance unmanned aircraft systems research and to accelerate UAS industry economic development in the region. NUAIR manages operations at one of seven federally-designated UAS test sites in the United States, and is at the forefront of public policy development, commercialization and safe integration of UAS into the National Airspace System.

SkyOp, in Canandaigua, NY, offers comprehensive courses in everything from the basics of drones to certifying and licensing pilots, and is continuing adding to its extensive course list. Start-up organizations, with seed money from GENIUS NY, is the world’s largest business accelerator for unmanned systems. GENIUS NY awards five drone startups a total of $3 million in investments, and has been instrumental in bringing multiple high-tech, drone-centered organizations to the CNY region. When we think of “drones,” it used to be a word quickly followed by “strikes.” As with so many technology developments, it did spring from the idea of controlling combat from a distance. The whole concept of a drone is a flight instrument that is “unmanned,” but not “unpiloted.” The pilot controls the device from afar, using video and GPS (and now tethered controls in some cases) to

maneuver the drone up, down, sideways, hovering, flying slow or astoundingly fast. New innovations are adding to the drones’ carrying capacity, flight time, and programming at such a rapid pace that even if you follow the industry it’s difficult to stay current. Drone “swarms” are comprised of tiny drones programmed to fly almost like a “murmuration,” a flock of birds that fly in what appears to be an orchestrated dance. In the case of the drones, it is orchestrated, each drone communicating with the others as well as the programming controlling their pattern and objectives. What’s most exciting about drones is that, as with many advances first conceived of for combat advantage, smart people quickly saw the ways in which the technology could be put to good purpose – and soon drones were being used to pollinate fruit groves when bees didn’t show up; to find people lost in the woods, or trapped inside a burning continued on pg 42

In Conclusion:

Embrace a fresh start! Set goals, create a plan and take small steps to achieve them! Stick to the plan and make sure you exercise daily. Yes, we sometimes eat too many cookies, binge on reality television shows and skip out on our workouts. It’s not what we do once in a while; it’s what we do every day. Good luck to you! I have been a personal trainer for over eighteen years and I absolutely love what I do. I honestly feel that I have one of the best jobs out there! The most rewarding part of my profession is helping one of my clients succeed at reaching their personal fitness goals. Making a difference in someone’s life makes it all worthwhile. I am currently certified by the National Sports Conditioning Association, Apex Fitness Group, and the International Sports Science Association.

Down on Deoderants continued from pg 24 or polyhexamethylene biguanide. Just type triclosan into the web browser for an eye opener. Hint: it’s listed as a pesticide by the EPA. Besides the antimicrobial chemicals most deodorants contain parabens (listed under the names butylparaben, ethylparaben, isobutylparaben, methylparaben, and propylparaben). Parabens are a known endocrine disruptor and can produce adverse developmental, reproductive, neurological, and immune effects. There MIGHT also be a relationship between underarm deodorants containing aluminum and breast cancer. As reported in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry November 2013 in an article entitled “Aluminium, carbonyls and cytokines in human nipple aspirate fluids: Possible relationship between inflammation, oxidative stress and breast cancer microenvironment.” There is an alarming increase in aluminum in breast tissues in women with breast cancer. So maybe think twice before dousing yourself with more chemicals and affecting your skin biome in a negative way. There are many websites promoting “natural” deodorants … rubbing yourself with salt rocks, etc. but I am going to stick with plain soap and water and risk offending you in other ways than I do on the radio. You can find more on this topic and Dr. Mercola’s website or at www.ewg.org. That’s Environmental Working Group … not European Working Group as I mistakenly named it in the last article. The web site is correct: www.ewg.org. Until next month … get well … stay well. (ed.

Droning On continued from pg 39 building; to manage traffic from above; to transport needed medical and life-saving supplies to people who were otherwise out of reach; and to create art. Flying shots have long been a staple of filmmaking – think of that long, long tracking shot at the beginning of The Shining, how it follows a car winding its way through the mountains, and sets the tone for the rest of the film to come. Shots like that were once an enormous and expensive undertaking. With a properly equipped drone, these shots can be used to great advantage by filmmakers big and small – there’s even a GENIUS NY project to map a space in 3D so that a filmmaker can plan a shot, hire a local pilot, and watch from afar as his shot is perfectly executed by a camera equipped drone. The NYS Drone Film Festival, which will be taking place this summer at the New York State Fair on August 25th, each year recognizes top filmmakers in 8 categories, plus a “Best in Show” award —and yes, there is a category for students, so don’t let age or lack of experience deter you!— with medals and a showing of their prize-winning film. Most categories require the majority of the short film to be shot using a drone, but one category is reserved for films about drones – the ways in which drones are being used throughout the world and in so many ways to save money, time, and even lives. If you’re an amateur or professional drone filmmaker, or you have a story to tell about drones, go to https://filmfreeway.com/NYSDroneFilmFestival for all the details, or visit www.dronefilmsfest.com. The entry deadline is July 15, so there’s still time to get your masterpiece recorded. And who knows? You may just win!
