    Excellent point, RP. It's 470,000 barrels a day. We've added that to the story. Thanks!

    Re: “Cameras will help 'stranded' cyclists

    Brian, the first one is only two miles. The city says it will do four or five miles this year in coordination with its annual street maintenance program. They don't have a timeline for the whole 53 miles.

    Re: “New ad campaign touts Rochester -- or Warren?
