The residents of the Highland Hospital Family Medicine Program are deeply saddened by the recent violence in our community. Some of us have been part of the Rochester community our whole lives, while others have just joined it, but each one of us now calls this city our home. We are grieved by the loss of three young lives outside of the Boys & Girls Club and the loss of a police officer in the line of duty.
Highland Family Medicine and Brown Square exist to serve our community. As part of that commitment, we support respect for each other and stand against violence. Cry! Shout! Sing out against the violence in our community. We all have voices that deserve to be heard.
During difficult times like this, it is natural to feel grief, fear, anger, despair, or numbness. The doors of these offices are always open to those who would like to speak to someone about this or any other experience. We encourage you to use your physician as a resource in your community. We are here for you.
Highland Family Medicine honors the lives that were lost and we continue to serve the family and friends they left behind.

I'm savvy enough to know I'm screwed. Can't save for retirement or invest if all your money is going to student loans.
NETFLIX AND CHELA
Count me OUT as to blaming the victims for their own plight in Rochester. That is bullshit, in my opinion. White people BUILT the ghetto.
The Rochester City School District wants to lower the standards for students so they are not suspended. This is ridiculous. They should be held to higher standards because THAT is what will be expected of them in the work force. It may not be fair, but it is reality. We shouldn't accept, "Well, he is from the city, so that is why he acts this way."
PAT CRESSY MASSA
I was at the opening night as I have several friends in this production. It was a great night. I actually heard people talking during intermission about the dancing, saying that the bar had been raised at Geva. I also know some inside scoop through my friends in the show that there were many non-dancers in the cast. I didn't notice that at all, which is further testament to how well choreographed this was; he was able to seamlessly incorporate them into the numbers.
Regarding Bernie Sanders' electability: First they laugh at you, then they attack you, then you win. As I wrote to the DNCC: DON'T TORPEDO his campaign in favor of your "anointed chosen." Since the attacks have, in fact, commenced, I think we're well on the way to the White House.
