Re: “Joint Schools Construction Board pushes back on rumors

Very serious allegations where made against the RJSCB. It draws suspension, scrutiny and breaks down public trust for infrastructure spending. That it alleges financial misappropriation occurred for the spending of resources for children makes it potentially reprehensible and warrants criminal investigation.
If the truth involves false allegations the time and resources spent investigating defending in order to return to building schools for children then those involved also warrant investigation and legal prosecution.
Clear this matter quickly and return to the task at hand.

Re: “Rethinking Irondequoit

The Town of Irondequoit has missed the boat on taking control of the mall. The Irondequoit Town Hall, the library, a Senior Center, a Community Center, the Police Department all should be located at the prime centralized mall location. There are also other thriving entities in the area such as Rochester General Hospital that the town could have partnered with to utilize the area for a satellite location. Too bad previous town leaders did not have the vision to grow into this space.

Re: “Dems want county to designate rooms for breastfeeding

I have felt for a long time that the Republican majority ignored the minority party , frequently without good reason. However, if this is the most consequential thing the Dems can propose, when the county already provides facilities on an as needed basis, then there is no reason for the Reps to pay attention to the Dems. Andrews is simply not a serious representative.

Re: “CHOW HOUND: Bar food, turned up to 11

Hi George and Rochester Musician,

Technically, Chow Hound is City's dining (restaurant) news column, and is usually more news style in coverage and focuses on newer businesses in Rochester. George, you bring up an important point - and we are currently looking at how we can better differentiate our reviews from our newsy Chow Hound. In the case of Marshall Street, writer Katie Libby wanted to revisit the restaurant since she recently saw a considerable uptick in talk around the bar's food. But, like I said, we're re-evaluating if Chow Hound was the proper column for that. Thank you for your comments.

Re: “CHOW HOUND: Bar food, turned up to 11

It doesn't, Rochester Musician. And that's my point. This is the Chow Hound column, which is traditionally for dining news, not reviews. That's why it says "restaurant news" at the top of this page.

Re: “Dems want county to designate rooms for breastfeeding

For God's sake !!! What is next ? A private room with a lock to get ones' self pregnant ? Can't Carrie find something better to provide in services to Monroe County Employees ? I thought I had heard and seen most things but this seems to be one of the most unimportant issues that I have read about in years.

Re: “CHOW HOUND: Bar food, turned up to 11

George, where does it say that a restaurant or bar must be new in order to be reviewed? And just because you know about the restaurant doesn't mean that there might not be a lot of people who don't.

If you wish you could ignore the Middle East's problems, then tell Cuomo to get rid of the stupid fracking ban.

Re: “Education is big business in Rochester

Another big business is the prison system. Many dropouts from city schools end up there. Another big business is the gun industry. It's shameful that money and jobs are so often put ahead of the common good.

Re: “Rethinking Irondequoit

I just hope as we grow that we keep our green areas that make Irondequoit beautiful. Revitalize old buildings instead of cutting down trees and clearing lots to make new. And please no more dollar and discount stores, we definitely have enough.

Re: “Education is big business in Rochester

No, the government school monopoly is not a business. It is a political entity that confiscates resources from the real economy, where people and businesses would put them to more productive use, in order to line the pockets of political interests. A business will soon disappear if it doesn't meet people's needs efficiently, but the government school monopoly responds only to politics. Once upon a time, one at least could argue that government schools did produce a productive local workforce and citizenry. After decades of declining performance, those days are long gone.

"Marshall Street Bar and Grill is not new. "

That's correct. This bar is great and all, but shouldn't the DINING NEWS column try to actually report on something we don't already know about?

Once they get rid of unions, labor laws will be the next target. Private workers, you're next.

Re: “Education is big business in Rochester

Charlotte high was "modernized" they didn't put air conditioning in, they have just 1 and a half restrooms for adult female staff( the 3rd floor bathroom is out of order often). They gave been trying to fix the back door so that the work badges could work. I've seen people coming in ALL year to try to fix it. When accountability is lacking, the results are shoddy, ill planed and wasteful.

Re: “Rethinking Irondequoit

Sea Breeze could use lots of help. The town really messed up when they ran that expressway extension behind the town, on very desirable and scenic property that could have been used for a park and housing, helping to create a walkable village and more shops and restaurants. Instead, that road bypasses the village. Dumb.

Re: “Film Review: "Citizen Koch"

wow. I post a fact, that one of the Koch bros donated $100,000,000 to a hospital in NYC and get 6 negative comments (so far). I remember watching on the news as people were protesting that gift...???????????

Imagine a world without rich people. We would all starve to death.

And BTW, a corporation IS people. Imagine again a corporation without one employee. What product would it produce? Who would write the checks, especially the tax bill? When the government increases taxes, or regulations, it's people who get laid off.

If unions can contribute to politics, then by all means a business should be able to. The union I belong to has donated faaaaar more money to politics than the Koch Bros. Much of the money the unions get is illegaly stolen from the members who don't approve of their dues being spent that way
