Wright leads effort to assess /P QMBOT gang presence, impact Of all youth referred to Onondaga County Probation Department:

23%

Source: Onondaga County Sheriff’s Department

While many individual agencies have collected information over time to suit their needs, an accredited comprehensive assessment is required for some federal grants Wright had hoped to apply for last spring. “We have lots of data, but we didn’t really have full community assessment,� Wright said. So the next step was to get other agencies on board. The group has met twice so far, Wright said, and is looking to involve even more local agencies in the effort. “It is a very, very complicated and complex issue,� she said. “From the impact of poverty, the involvement of drugs and drug trafficing, the accessibility of guns, and the hopelessness young people feel while surviving poverty.� Like any public health issue, Wright said, gaining a full understanding of Syracuse’s concerns, issues and obstacles will require “everybody’s commitment to make a change.� “A full understanding of what our community concerns are is a good start, but it’s not like we’re going to bulid one perfect strategy,� Wright said. “We can’t jump start and stop short-term plans over time, it’s got to be really concentrated effort.�

Long before gang violence in Syracuse killed 20-month-old Rashad Walker Jr., a group of agencies had already begun the long, tedious process of creating a comprehensive assessment of gang presence in the Syracuse community. It’s an effort Linda Wright hopes will lead to grant money to help authorities address gang-related issues specific to Syracuse – issues that have never been comprehensively looked at. Wright is the executive director for professional and community services at the Salvation Army of the Syracuse Area. “Law enforcement, the schools, and agencies all have data,� Wright said. “But we need to pull it together and look at a comprehensive report that we can take to funding sources and say, these are our issues, this is what we have to address, and these are the needs we have.� Wright has spearheaded an effort that has so far included Syracuse police and probation officers, schools and city officials, the United State Attorney’s office, Mothers Against Gun Violence, Weed and Seed, and law enforcement statistics Finn Institute to establish an assessment of gangs in Syracuse. The assessment will look at both hard data and statistics, like the number of shots fired in each city neighborhood, as well as the community feeling toward violence and gangs. “There’s not just hard data, there are also issues and feelings and sorting out the perspectives from the whole community,� Wright said.

Viewpoints Our view

Think local, buy local... party local Holiday shoppers are out in full force now, coincidentally just as SyracuseFirst approches it’s formal one-year anniversary celebration. SyracuseFirst, a nonprofit whose motto is “think local, buy local, be local,” has gained serious noteriety and momentum in only a year (and a half), since founder and executive director Chris Fowler sprang the intensely local-first philosophy on Syracuse. Though it was technically founded in June 2009, SyracuseFirst will hold a “Buy Local Bash” to mark the end of its first full year of operations at 6 p.m. Wednesday Dec. 15. The shindig is hosted by Orange Line Gallery, at the gallery’s most recent home at 106 Montgomery St., next to Miss Syracuse Diner. Attending the Buy Local Bash is a great way to support local business, but an even more long-term opportunity is to take SyracuseFirst’s pledge -- an informal promise to the organization and community that you will redirect 10 percent of your spending to locally owned and operated businesses and producers. Ten percent? This month, that could be one Christmas gift bought from Eureka Crafts instead of the Hallmark Store, or one lunch enjoyed at SparkyTown instead of Panera. Think you can do it? We challenge you, and ourselves, to take the pledge -- and to choose the high-spending holiday season to do so! Visit theeaglecny.com for more information about SyracuseFirst and the Buy Local Bash.

Another candlelight vigil? With increasing frequency local news programs have shown candlelight vigil after candlelight vigil for victims of violence in the city of Syracuse. I have to respectfully say that perhaps we’re lighting the candles but putting them in the wrong place. How many people have to die before someone realizes that this problem has been aging and fermenting like an old wooden cask of Jack DanJackson iels? When I look at where the young people live, especially young African Americans, there is little to no economic activity. The small shops that traditionally employed neighborhood children are now extinct. Face it -- your chances of seeing a prehistoric raptor in Syracuse are greater than economic justice for the inhabitants of our most challenged neighborhoods. Funds have been invested in Little Italy, Tipp Hill, Armory Square and downtown. Business districts in Eastwood and on Westcott Street are ever-changing to meet the needs of their neighborhood clients. Look at how upscale a few of the restaurants on Westcott Street have become. If you live in a challenged neighborhood

Perspective

there are no stores, there are no services. There are no job opportunities for these young people. Field trip suggestion: drive down South Salina Street from the old Sears Roebuck to Valley Plaza. As you head south gaze from your window at some of the buildings that appear as though they’re about to topple with the next severe weather outbreak. It’s as if entire swathes of this city were ignored when it came down to the fair and even development and maintenance of schools in poorer neighborhoods, amenities like quality of shopping and retail shopping choices. The 2005 MetroEdge report presented results of a study that showed the potential economic impact of business development within the black community and how many millions of dollars in consumer purchasing actually escape the South Side as people take their money and go to the suburbs for their goods and services. The reason the MetroEdge study was hidden from the public is that if people knew they were going to be uprooted to take down the highway and expand the university they’d raise hell. If they knew the real economic impact of those shoppers being able to buy goods on South Salina Street instead of going out to a mall, they’d understand that hawking

that report as a catalyst for development would have attracted some developers to establish businesses in these neighborhoods. In the meantime, as hopelessness escalates along with outrage, we light another candle, and another, and then another. The only way I’d participate in a candle light vigil is if we could light the candle under the asses of those whose responsibility it is to lead and govern this city and county. I’d light a candle under the Common Council for failure to deal with this growing cancer in our neighborhoods. I’d light a candle under the Onondaga County Legislature’s butts, too, and let us not leave out the Syracuse City School Board for just providing the uneven distribution of education resources that have historically negatively impacted the African American community. What would happen if people who held candles at these vigils showed up at the Common Council Chamber or lit a candle under the seats of the Onondaga County Legislature? Something would get done. Do you think Ken Jackson has the right idea? Do you disagree? Let him know at urbancny@cnylink.com.

“You’ll shoot your eye out with laughter!” is the tagline for this year’s holiday season production at Syracuse Stage, “A Christmas Story,” a theatrical adaptation of a popular film based on another story by humorist Jean Shepherd. But this production consciously aims to smuggle in deeper feeling about family relationships, what we remember and what endures, than might be apparent from some of Rhodes nancykeeferhodes@ the slapstick press photos.

WEIGHT GAIN STRESSES NEW AND OLD KNEES Conventional wisdom holds that kneereplacement surgery removes a significant barrier to exercising regularly, but recent research undermines this notion. A study of 106 knee-replacement patients shows that, two years after their procedures, two-thirds of the group had put on an average 12 pounds. (The remaining third lost an average of four pounds.) Moreover, the knee-replacement patients who gained weight also displayed weakened quadriceps (thigh) muscles. Increased body weight and weakened quadriceps muscles place added stress on both newly replaced and non-operated knees. To avoid the likelihood of having the other knee replaced, knee-replacement patients are strongly urged to follow their rehabilitation and exercise programs. Being sedentary and overweight

also raises the risk of heart disease and other cardiovascular problems. Knee replacement surgery is very successful, but the success of the procedure is partly due to the rehabilitation period that follows the surgery. Rehabilitation after knee replacement begins immediately. The emphasis in the early stages of rehab is to maintain motion of the knee replacement and to ensure that the patient can walk safely. If you or a family member needs physical therapy, please call our clinic at 315-476-3176 to schedule an appointment. We are proud to offer highly trained and experienced professionals to serve you. Our office is located at 207 Pine in Syracuse. Happy Holidays! P.S. If knee-replacement patients experience discomfort while exercising, they can try swimming, water aerobics, or upper-body exercises to get needed aerobic exercise.

What is flamenco?

No, not “flamingo,” although that’s a common mispronunciation. Flamenco is a high-energy dance and the performers need the audience to be energized too, so they can vibe off of their energy. “When you have an audience that’s really into it and clapping, it’s amazing the energy you can get from them,” Gúzman said. In addition to dancers, a typical flamenco performance often involves the following elements: flamenco guitar (classical, Spanish-style), cantaores (singers), palmas (a term for the variety of hand-clapping techniques), and cajon (a wooden boxshaped percussion instrument).

of flamenco By Gina Colonette The Eagle Intern

Syracuse is filled with arts programs and dance troupes of all kinds, but if you are looking for a flamenco group, you will only find one: Puente Flamenco. “I really didn’t think anything was going to happen, I was like, flamenco in Central New York?” said flamenco dancer Marisa Gúzman. “I didn’t realize the interest that was around for it.” But a year and a half ago Puente Flamenco began forming when Shander Bawden, a flamenco dancer, contacted Lonnie Chu and asked if they could get together to talk about the possibility of bringing flamenco to Syracuse. “The group kind of came together through the Internet, otherwise I don’t know how we would have found each other,” said Puente Flamenco manager Lonnie Chu. No one really knew what was going to come out of that Internet connection, but today Puente Flamenco has seven active members: Lonnie Chu, manager, singer and palmas; guitarists David Chu (also Lonnie’s husband), and Andy Culpepper; dancers Gúzman, Joan Dear-Houseman and Anna Rupert; and David Colegrove, cajon/percussionist and Gúzman’s husband. A variety of talents and backgrounds Each member brings a unique talent to the group, and they didn’t necessarily learn the traditional way. As Lonnie Chu says, when it comes to flamenco in Syracuse, you have to get it where you can. Gúzman’s first experience with flamenco came at age 14 when her father entered her into a competition. She learned choreography from a videotape sent by her aunt, a former professional flamenco dancer in New York City. She used her aunt’s videos to learn flamenco dancing until she went to New York City at age 21, where she studied flamenco dancing with Andrea del Conte. Although most of the group members didn’t know each other before joining, they have learned to work together and capitalize on each individual’s skills.

Marisa Gúzman dances at Laci’s Tapas Bar, where Puente Flamenco performs the first Friday of each month. For more photos and video of the performance, visit theeaglecny.com. Even having two guitarists in the group has proven convenient. David Chu said it’s a pleasure to work with Culpepper because of how talented he is. “It’s not always easy to work with other guitarists because we all have our strong preferences and/or egos,” David Chu said. “But it’s just a joy working with him because we just both enjoy each other’s playing and companionship.” Culpepper plays guitars and makes them too. His specialties are Flamenco and classical guitars. The current Flamenco guitar he plays is the first one he made, it took him three months. His second guitar took one month – that’s the one David Chu plays.

making any money, Everyone has a day job, or for some, a night job. Gúzman teaches dance classes at night, but her main priority is taking care of her three young daughters. “It’s not easy sometimes. The group has been really great about meeting here at my house,” Gúzman said. Dedication is something that comes easily for group members. Culpepper’s weekly hour-long drive from Ithaca to Syracuse doesn’t bother him; he has to go to practice. Gúzman danced while she was seven months pregnant. And David Chu spent 12 long hours to compose a song for the group to perform to. But it’s all for the love of flamenco.

Supporting the habit Puente Flamenco is somewhat of a hobby according to Lonnie Chu. They aren’t really

Just the beginning So far, there have been many positive reactions to Puente Flamenco. Lonnie Chu recalls

when an older man came up to the group and praised them for their performance. “He said, ‘I haven’t heard that kind of music in decades and you just brought me back to Spain’,” she said. Flamenco dancing is certainly hard to come by in Syracuse. Dan Ward, entertainment coordinator for the Syracuse Arts & Crafts Festival, said he had been trying to find flamenco performers in the area for years, and to have a Flamenco troupe that is able to perform here is a “tremendous asset.” “I think it gives people a lot more opportunity to be exposed to it. I think they are top-shelf,” Ward said. In its year-and-a-half existence, Puente Flamenco has already performed at a number of places, including the Syracuse Arts & Crafts Festival, Mohawk Valley Community College, Onondaga Community College, Mundy Library and their monthly spot, Laci’s Tapas Bar. And this is only the beginning for Puente Flamenco. The troupe has future goals for flamenco in Central New York; David Chu said he’d like the group to get involved in teaching. Having another regular gig is on Lonnie Chu’s mind. She said it’s a matter of seeing how much the people want it. Either way they will keep performing for themselves and the education of others. “It’s something brand new for a lot of people here and we’d just like to go out and give them a taste,” she said. Get a taste of Puente Flamenco and tapas every first Friday of the month at Laci’s Tapas Bar, 304 Hawley Ave. “Flamenco Fridays” include two shows by Puente Flamenco, one at 6:30 p.m. which requires reservations, and another at 9 p.m. Call Laci’s at 218-5903 or visit lacistapasbar.com for more information.

The bolden-toned scat singer vocalizes on “The Island” and “Invitation,” two tunes that blend the group’s Cuban folk rhythms with some straight-ahead swing. Ten more tracks showcase Russo’s fascination with rumba, mambo and cha-cha-cha. Roll back the rugs and let’s dance! Visit craigrusso.com.

‘Songs for Tipperary Hill’

Twelve tunes dedicated to Syracuse’s West End Irish neighborhood combine to create a special sense of community. Produced by Ed Zacholl, Joe Henson and Mike Lounsberry, the tracks include Zacholl’s “Tipp Hill Town” and the Z-Bones’ “Everybody’s Neighborhood.” Joanne Perry contributes “Song for the Stonethrowers,” Dennis Heaphy explains “That’s Why It’s on Top,” and the Tipp Hillbillies celebrate a “Box of Wine.” The venerable vocal group, the Tom Dooley Choraliers sing “Billy Barry” while Heaphy and Joanne O’Connor Balduzzi harmonize on “St. Patrick’s High School Alma Mater.” Visit tipphillmusifest.org.

Seneca Federal is not an average mortgage originator requests and pride ourselves as local underwriters with timely commitments.” Seneca Federal has never used credit scores as a basis for loan approval but rather base loan commitment on actual consumer credit history. This ‘traditional’ and time-tested practice has worked well for the Association, which has a foreclosure rate near zero percent. “A low foreclosure rate sometimes leads people to ask me if we are risky enough with such a low default rate,” said the president, adding that the low default rate has more to do with the rapport they have made with their customers during the underwriting process and less to do with not taking risk. “Our loans are often tailor-made to our customer’s specific needs and we build a rapport with them from the beginning, indicating that we are on the ‘same side’. We are very thankful when a customer is willing to approach us when they are having difficulty and before the loan is in default and we are able to work with finding a solution to get them through a rough time such as a job loss,” added Purcell. At Seneca Federal you always have the ability to speak directly with experienced loan underwriters

who assist you in your mortgage loan application process from start to finish, including servicing throughout the loan. The lending team is carrying on with the philosophy of individualized lending that community banks thrive on. “We are imbedded in our communities and want to offer competitive mortgage, consumer and commercial loan rates for the benefit of our customers,” said Purcell. “We aren’t a ‘cookie cutter’ secondary mortgage market lender. We understand the needs of our communities and want to provide a competitive product.” The mortgage servicing is always retained by us so our customers are assured they will work with us for the life of the loan. One example of a loan that is often tailor-made to a customer’s needs is the construction to permanent financing mortgage loan with one loan closing and a rate that is determined at commitment, before the construction phase. This loan is popular since the rate can’t change when it ‘converts’ to permanent financing later and closing costs are only paid once, upon commitment. The risk of a higher rate later after the house is constructed is removed. Another such tailor-made loan

includes a mortgage where a customer is purchasing a house in which projected renovations are included. The purchase and renovation costs are wrapped into one mortgage loan. Other features which add to Seneca’s appeal as a mortgage lender include no flood certification fees and no underwriting fees. “This culture of personalized service was instilled into us by our predecessors, so that Sen-

“Seneca Federal Savings and Loan Association is not an average mortgage originator but it IS an average community bank,” said Katrina Russo, presidentCEO of Seneca Federal Savings and Loan Association. Sound community bank mortgage lending practices are not the source of problems that have turned the economy on its ear. Rather, the “big” banks who took part in the sub-prime lending with less than qualified applicants is what has contributed to the downturn of the economy. “It’s not all about making a quick buck,” said Russo. “Mainstream America has to start thinking beyond the all mighty buck and remember what is really at the heart of this nation, which I believe is what all communities bank’s thinking boils down to. The dream of homeownership is a dream we help make happen and it can be done in a conservative manner and still render positive results to many.” Seneca Federal is proud to provide traditional, local home town lending with competitively priced mortgage rates. “We look to competitors daily, in part, to decide where to price our mortgage rates,” said Tammy Purcell, VP–lending. “We also respond quickly to pre-qualification

Syracuse Crunch

Of its first 23 games in the 2010-11 American Hockey league season, the Syracuse Crunch have had 17 games decided by one goal. While the close calls can be encouraging, the bad news is that of those 17 decisions just six have gone in favor of the Crunch. One came Sunday Dec. 5, in Charlotte, N.C. as Crunch center Stefan Chaput (shaPOO) tallied the game-winning goal with 2:23 left to play against his former team, the Charlotte Checkers, for a 3-2 victory. Left wing Patrick Maroon added a goal and an assist and center Trevor Smith scored his third goal in two games. Smith had netted a pair of goals Friday, Dec. 3, against the Rochester Amerks at the Blue Cross Arena, but the Crunch dropped that one – you guessed it! – by one goal, 6-5. In Rochester, Crunch Coach Mark Holick lifted rookie goalie Timo Pielmeier after the German-born netminder allowed three goals on nine shots. Veteran J.P. Levasseur didn’t do much better, allowing three more Amerk scores on just 13 shots. At least the Crunch offense was firing on all cylinders, taking 41 shots at Amerks goalie Jacob Markstrom, who rejected 36 of them. On Sunday in North Carolina, Pielmeier returned to his stellar self between the pipes, turning away 34 of 36 shots and was named the game’s first star for his winning effort.  Chaput, the hero of the third period, started the season with Charlotte but was traded

along with Matt Kennedy from the Carolina organization to the Anaheim organization in exchange for Ryan Carter on Nov. 23. It looked as if Sunday’s game was headed to overtime until Chaput swatted in a rebound from a Nicolas Deschamps shot during a pileup in front of the cage with 2:23 left in regulation.  Charlotte pulled goalie Justin Pogge for an extra attacker with just more than a minute to play, but the Crunch held on for the win.  Syracuse returns home to War Memorial at 7:30 Friday, Dec. 10, to take on the lastplace Adirondack Phantoms, and will face off here against the Binghamton Senators at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 11. Ticket prices range between $13 and $22; 473-4444; syracusecrunch.com.

Sample wine Saturday When the Syracuse Crunch take on the Bridgeport Sound Tigers this Saturday, fans 21 and over will have the opportunity to sample Riunite Lambrusco and Riunite D’Oro wines. Riunite Wine Sampling Night will take place beginning at 6:30 p.m. Saturday Dec. 11, when doors open through the second intermission outside of Memorial Hall located on the first floor of The Oncenter War Memorial Arena.
