I've worked in the table games department in two different casinos. I am a table games supervisor. I worked for the Seneca nation for years. Sure, you get your regulars that come in. So what? You people that think bringing a casino into town is gonna devastate the area and make everyone poor is crazy. First, it brings construction jobs...than thousands of jobs that follow to operate it. I love what I do. People come for fun... and above all else the thrill of winning money. Why lose out on the money to other states when you can have your own. I can assure you that 95% of these people come to get away from there regular lives looking for nothing more than entertainment and fun. I would imagine your property value going up as well. As more jobs are created...
Alex, how did I not know this? This is critical information.
Don't forget that H.P. Lovecraft, commonly considered the father of modern horror, has many paternal ancestors that were buried in Mt.Hope before the family moved to Rhode Island (his father was born and raised in Rochester).
Look for story soon to break that Vacco's services are terminated by Monroe County. due to major scandal in Vacco's background. While he was US Attorney in Buffalo (1988-1993), Vacco refused to prosecute the NYAG's office for corruption.also involving the district court there ( despite having evidence that guaranteed convictions). Schneiderman knows all about the scandal and knows that Vacco can demand favors because of his prior protection of NYAG Abrams who was forced to resign his office in 1993 before the completion of his term, as was NYS Comptroller Ed Regan. email firstname.lastname@example.org
Sean, working people use food stamps.
Tom DiNaploi, state comptroller, has said that LDCs are ripe for fraud and abuse because they do not have to go through the same procurement process as the government. While we have to wait the review of all evidence by the courts to see if this investigation is politically motivated or a serious breech of the public trust, we do know that there is a history of favoritism with this county administration. Keeping property taxes level while adding to future pension costs may look better on paper than in reality.
Perhaps people who are so weak they need to take public money could try earning their living rather than being made weaker.
Rather interesting thing to say Ms. Towler, given that you were one of her critics when Mayor-Elect Warren laid plans to run nine months ago.
The latest unemployment rate in Atlantic City was 12.6%. The most recent unemployment rate in Las Vegas was 9.2%. The most recent unemployment rate in PA was 7.7% and drum roll please...the unemployment rate in NY was 7.6%.
I mentioned Atlantic City and Las Vegas because of their high profile status as casino gambling meccas. I mentioned Pennsylvania because of the fracking's promise of jobs. These unemployment figures kind of shoot down the lies told about fracking and casinos as job saviors. Yes, of course they create jobs, but many things create jobs.
And have you been to Atlantic City lately? It is still the tale of two worlds...on one side, there is the glitz of the casinos and right across the street are the homeless in extreme poverty.
Fracking and casinos are not solutions, they are problems and threats.

Also, I hope some of Mr. Northrop's sarcasm and wit (and dare I say self-awareness of his elevated mental faculties as compared to other born slaves) come through, though that might be even harder to translate into the film.
Right on. I read the book and it was. .. difficult to stomach. I hope the film captured some of Mr Northrop's ingenuity and his pondering over the nuances of cotton-picking talent and effective sugar cane harvesting (two topics of which I can scarcely imagine), his descriptions of which were really practical; a learned man indeed that heaps of injustice nearly broke.
There is much misinformation written and or quoted in this article. Lima has always been a bedroom community of Rochester. Storefronts will never thrive in the village because of the lack of parking. The last major business development built in the village was in 1975. A new supermarket was built with ample parking on West Main Street. On East Main Street a "historical" house was moved to outside the village and a new diner was built with ample parking No, the new buildings did not match the "architecture", but it did bring many people into the village maybe because of the "ample parking" and modern buildings.
The Dollar General store repeatedly mentioned is 3/4 mile north of the village business district. The store sits among industrial buildings with steel roofing and steel/brick siding. The store fits the " architecture" that surrounds it. The print edition of this newspaper shows a good picture of the Dollar General storefront with many cars parked with the store's ample parking. Business is doing good there the picture shows
Lima's village storefront businesses slowly disappeared with the US recession in the 1970's/80's and never returned. They never will.
The pharmacy closed not because of the "big box" pharmacy in the next town. The bank closed not because of the lack of business. The hardware store (Western Auto) and dry cleaners closed 30 years ago.
Let's face it the modern living today will never bring retail business back to the storefronts in the village. The storefront signs say "No Parking".
Looks like you are more of a Sesame Street live person. Sorry the show was beyond you.
A Republican spin that has brainwashed many. Just because the tax rate stays the same doesn't mean your property taxes are not going up. Maggie and her Republican friends need to stop talking about the tax rate and be honest about are taxes.
Let us all bow our heads for a moment of silence for the most cryptic piece of graffiti in the Rochester region, which once adorned this building:
"In 1999, the Euro was created..."
So the self-proclaimed Duffy Era "Dream Team" will be coming to an end. It began with such braggadocio. I recall Walker, et al, taking Mike Caputo, then at WXXI, to task for questioning their bold claim. As always, history will be the true judge of their success.
What was it Gary that you called Mike? Oh that's right, a “nattering nabob of negativism.”
I voted for Lovely becasue she truly wants to be the Mayor of Rochester. Before the primary, I had never even heard of... now Mayor-Elect Warren. I just assumed that Tom Richerds would win and get my vote. But Richards didn't want the job and said " Of course, if I win... I will continue to serve as Mayor. Thanks, but NO!! We need a Mayor who actually wants the position. As a city resident, I am so glad that Lovely Warren is our new Mayor.
Jim, City Resident
This is a wonderful show with a really nice variety of artists!
