City beat Greyhound Canada introduces Ottawa to Syracuse service By Ami Olson Looking to get away Friday? Hop on a bus and be in Ottawa by dinnertime. Greyhound Canada announced Jan. 20 that direct bus service on Fridays and Sundays would begin the following morning. The routes will run from Syracuse Hancock International Airport to Ottawa on two schedules every Friday and Sunday. Leaving Syracuse, travelers will depart the airport at 1:30 p.m. Fridays and Sundays and arrive in Ottawa at 5:15 p.m. Coming home, the bus leaves Ottawa at 7:30 a.m. Friday and Sundays and arrives back in Syracuse at 11:15 a.m. Previously, to ride Greyhound from Syracuse to Ottawa meant an 11- to 16-hour trip with several transfers, according to the Greyhound website. The longer route traveled through Rochester, Buffalo and Toronto before arriving in Ottawa. The new, direct route cuts travel time significantly to just four hours and 15 minutes. One-




THE way tickets for the trip cost $96, the same cost to take the trip on the longer routes. Crossing the border requires a United States passport or enhanced driver’s license. Travelers were able to purchase tickets for the new direct line on the Greyhound website beginning Friday Jan. 21. Visit for ticket and scheduling information. --

Corbett won’t seek ninth term By Ami Olson Onondaga County Legislator James Corbett (R) announced last week that he will not run for a ninth term in the legislature. Corbett represents the 8th district, which includes parts of Solvay, Geddes and Camillus, and currently serves as chair of the Environmental Protection Committee and vice chair of the Ways and Means Committee.

He entered politics in 1989 when he was elected a town councilor for the Town of Geddes. In 1995, he was appointed to fill the legislature seat by then-County Supervisor Nick Pirro. Corbett was re-elected and to the post for seven subsequent terms.

Armory Square renovation will create 12 apartments By Ami Olson First things first: Don’t worry, Al’s will continue to operate throughout construction. Now onto the news. A $2.7 million construction loan will be used to renovate the vacant space of the South Clinton Street building that houses Al’s Wine and Whiskey Lounge in Armory Square. The Community Preservation Corporation recently announced it would gut and rehabilitate the historic five-story building at 315-319

S. Clinton St., creating 12 new two-bedroom residential units that would lease for $1,000 to $1,700 a month. The now vacant retail space on the ground floor will also be renovated and remain commercial retail. The project is in the hands of Robb Bidwell and Doug Balle, the team responsible for converting unused space into 15 loft-style apartments at 121-129 W. Fayette St., just a block north of the new project location. That project was also funded through the CPC. In addition to the CPC loan, Bidwell and Balle received a $600,000 Restore New York grant and $150,000 in construction financing from the city of Syracuse to renovate the property.

Since September 2010... It all adds up!

Salt City DISHES links artists with community to fund projects By Ami Olson Only one of the nine project proposals would walk away with the $1,000 minigrant from the debut Salt City DISHES dinner on Sunday, but the intangible benefits, the networking and exposure each project gained from the event were just as invaluable. And that was the goal all along. DISHES debuts Held in the beautiful Saint Clare Theater on the North Side, the DISHES dinner offered a little bit of everything: a sophisticated meal, an informal community gathering, a concert, a networking opportunity and the chance to award one of nine proposed public art projects with a $1,000 minigrant, generated by the $10-$15 admission price each participant paid. A huge group of volunteers and vendors joined forces to make DISHES possible, beginning with co-founders and organizers Rachel Somerstein, Briana Kohlbrenner and Stasya Panova. Their efforts were validated by a sell-out crowd of 135 people. Organizers announced Saturday that the theater would be at maximum capacity, and tickets they had planned to sell at the door would not be available. “Once we knew that it was sold out and that people had gotten tickets in advance we all felt comfortable knowing it was going to be really successful,” Panova said. “It met my expectations, even though my expectations were set high and I was hoping for a really amazing turnout and something outstanding.” The future of funding? With money tight all around and arts taking an especially hard hit in every budget process, are community generated funding systems like DISHES the future of public art? Kohlbrenner and Panova think so. The DISHES event was modeled after the FEAST program already popular in cities throughout the country, and the reception Syracuse gave the inaugural is a positive sign. “I think this trend got teed up with the recession, there has been a lot of pullback in funding

DISHES organizers Stasya Panova and Briana Kohlbrenner, above, introduce the debut event to the 135 attendees Sunday Jan. 23. Presenters Mark Povinelli and Brendan Rose personify the clash between art and science. for the arts in a lot of cities across the county,” Kohlbrenner said. “People don’t want to wait around for corporate things going on outside the city, they’re saying ‘we should focus our energy right here,’ and they’re throwing the gloves off.” “This idea of DIY economy is growing in all aspects … I think that as the economy does worse and worse people are taking things into their own hands more,” said Joel Weissman, part of the team who won the first DISHES minigrant. A method that uses small amounts of seed money given directly by community members is an idea that can be applied in a lot of ways, Kohlbrenner said. Weissman called it “DIY philanthropy.” By asking for support from the community, artists can get the word out about their ideas and communicate with one another about common goals – often a problem for artists in Syracuse, Panova said.­ Kohlbrenner said she was - Briana Kohlbrenner, surprised to see how many of Salt City DISHES co-founder the submitted proposals were

“You think Syracuse is so small, and you think you know about everything that is going on, then you realize it’s really bigger than we’re all claiming it to be.”

SUBPAR sets the bar By Ami Olson

The project that won over the crowd at Sunday’s debut DISHES dinner was Tonja Torgerson and Joel Weissman’s proposal to create art that is also activism as part of their collaborative called SUBPAR, or Syracuse Urban Beautification Public Art Resistance. Both graduate students at SU, (Minneapolis native Torgerson is studying print making student; Weissman, from Montana, ceramics), the idea for SUBPAR originated in a class last semester. The classmates were charged with developing a project that would combine their two mediums in a public and meaningful way. They chose to create street art installations, “forcing beauty into urban surroundings,” and SUBPAR was born. The SUBPAR proposal will create “unconventional street art”

using hand-made, screenprinted ceramic tiles mortared permanently into place in an otherwise unused, unnoticed public space. “Imagine a series of tiles that add a splash of color on a drab grey wall or boarded up window,” the team said during their presentation Sunday. The project received 30 votes. Like many of the ideas presented at DISHES, Torgerson and Weissman had plans to realize maren guse their project and agreed they Joel Weissman and Tonja Torger- would have it to fruition with or son present SUBPAR. without DISHES funding. “We were planning on actualizing the project no matter what, but DISHES allows us a lot of leeway in what we’re going to do,” Weissman said.

projects already being realized. Several of Sunday’s presenters made it clear that their projects would become a reality with or without the DISHES funding. The extra cash, they said, would allow them to take their art to a new level. “I found that really exciting,” she said. “These projects are going on right now, and I don’t even know about them. You think Syracuse is so small, and you think you know about everything that is going on, then you realize it’s really bigger than we’re all claiming it to be.” To see more of Maren Guse’s photos from the DISHES dinner, check out the gallery at Upload photos of your own or tell us about your experience at DISHES there, too! That extra $1,000 certainly opens some doors for the artists. “A couple hundred dollars can make a big difference,” Torgerson said. “A lot of artists aren’t looking for a lot of money, they just need a little help. And people who like the arts feel like they can help the artists.” Their presentation included examples of similar projects by other artists, a detailed tentative timeline for completion and an estimated budget. Though the other eight presentations were delivered in a variety of formats, from improvisational comedy exercise to well-rehearsed skit, co-founder and organizer Stasya Panova said anyone who submitted a proposal had to also submit a budget and project outline. “This is a pretty interesting approach to granting money,” Panova said. “I’m not sure that every artist in the world could make a presentation for their work.” In the runner-up spot with 25 votes was Daniel Aguilera’s Syracuse Community Cookbook Series project.

Viewpoints Our view

Activate and create We’ve heard this word being tossed around before in certain arts-centric circles, and it was prevalent again at Sunday’s Salt City DISHES dinner: activate. We weren’t sure exactly what that meant, so we had to ask. Brianna Kohlbrenner, one of the co-founders of the DISHES program and a North Side entreprenuear, agreed that the A-word is a popular one, and she tried to help us nail down what it means. “A lot of people are feeling like it’s their civic duty to activate these spaces that aren’t being utilized,” she explained. As in “activate the space,” with art, energy and meaning. Give something underutilized, neglected and forgotten a purpose by activating it. That was certainly a theme among the nine presentations delivered at Sunday’s dinner. From installing public art on bare, neglected exterior surfaces to creating short-term galleries and event spaces in empty storefronts, all of the projects up for consideration Sunday aimed to, yes, activate. There’s just one catch: only one project won the DISHES minigrant, $1,000 to invest in the winning idea. There is a second DISHES dinner scheduled for May 1, but from the energy present at last week’s event we wonder if the community can really wait until May. The other eight projects still need your support. We’ve outlined all of the proposals given at the DISHES dinner online at If you’re interested in helping those projects be realized, we want to help connect you with the people trying to complete them! Whether you have time, money or knowledge to share, these projects are hungry for help. Contact us at editor@theeaglecny. com, 434-8889 ext.335 or at facebook. com/ for help in supporting these worthwhile projects.

Your voice Editor’s note: We got a great response from readers about last week’s feature article, “How coupons got cool,” (The Eagle, Jan. 20, 2011). Your feedback was so informative and useful that we’ve included it in this week’s edition to share it with other readers. “Using Groupon has actually boosted our E-commerce. Groupon customers clicked through to our site quite a bit. It was a significant loss however in my “margins.” One always hopes that these deals pan for the long term. One thing that would help is if Groupon sent me the check right away instead of in 3 monthly installments.” - Matt Godard, owner, Cafe Kubal -“Lauren’s site has been such a blessing to my family. Learning how to properly use coupons to save my family the most money has helped us to stick to a grocery budget, and pay down debt. These two sites can

really change a person’s life, and their whole outlook on shopping! Great article!” - Laura M., online reader -“Andrea’s is great the weekly ad match-ups help me maximize my coupons at stores like Rite Aid!” - Christi, online reader -“Because of the space limitations of my apartment, I don’t stock up much, (also because my husband would rather I not buy unneeded items simply because they are on sale). I will buy almost anything that is free unless I absolutely have no need for it (like men’s Rogaine) and things that are very cheap, if I will use them in the next three months. At drugstores, most of my purchases are for items like toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo, dish soap and cough drops. I keep an extra of all of these under my sink cupbord and if I have the opportunity to get another for free before I use it, I

give it away. My family usually won’t refuse an offer like that. When it comes to food, I stock up as much as I can, but those opportunities are fewer and farther between. I can more easily justify to myself buying an extra box of cereal or can of soup on sale when I know it will be eaten soon and would cost twice as much to wait until my cupboards were empty.” - Sarah Hallock, reader who answered the question, “How do apartment-dwellers, with limited space to stock up, take advantage of coupons?” Have a question or comment about something in this issue of The Eagle?

Best Bets: Music SSO hosts local dancers Saturday Mike Powell at Jazz Central

‘Rent’ opens at Syracuse Stage Last Friday night the weather outside was just like that last scene in McCabe and Mrs. Miller when Warren Beatty freezes to death in the blizzard. But inside Syracuse Stage, things were sizzling. Based on Puccini’s beloved La Boheme, Jonathan Larson’s rock opera Rent won the Pulitzer Prize for best drama and took home four Tony Awards in 1996, updating the age-old story of young Bohemians intoxicated by the theatre life even in the midst of big city hardships. Directed and choreographed by Anthony Salatino, this production is a joint venture by Syracuse Stage and SU’s Drama Department. It runs through Feb. 13 and is way better than the ill-fated movie version of a few years ago.

from giddiness to rage to tears. Mrs. Hayes’ counterpart is Mrs. Collins (Binaifer Dabu), the angry mother of Adam (Adam Perabo) whose promiscuous lifestyle led to his affliction, though his imminent death fails to quell his capacity for love. Even the perfunctory doctor and nurse (Darian Sundberg and Kate Metroka) display human qualities with which we can all identify. Most entertaining, however, are Elliot’s fellow patients. Maha McCain plays the spirited Maha, whose final wish is a meal at McDonald’s. Muscular Brett Davenport embodies the macho Nick, who blindly denies that he’s even infected. Best yet is Temar Underwood as Resean. His bosomy transvestite is quick with a ribald riposte at every turn, but also connects deeply with Elliot as she becomes Athena to his Odysseus. Nathan Young appears in a late dream sequence as Elliot’s departed boyfriend, but Young makes the most of his small role, reminding us that – despite its dire circumstances – “Odysseus DOA” is more about love than death. Go see this show! “Odysseus DOA” continues at 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday Jan. 27 to 29 at the Red House, 201 S. West St., on the outskirts of Armory Square. Tickets cost $25 or $20 for students and seniors; 425-0405. The Red House cast and crew will take “Odysseus” to Manhattan March 16-20, to the Lion Theatre on 42nd Street. The play is a co-production of Red House and the Adirondack Center for the Arts at Blue Mountain Lake, where playwright Stephen Svoboda is the director.
