People of color much worse off here, report says

New energy for a city being reborn

For City Council: Gruber, Juda, Lupien, Ortiz, Scott

Rochester responds to Charlottesville

A 20-year-old white supremacist named James Alex Fields Jr. rammed a car into a group of counter-protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer and injuring dozens of others. Rochester community members swiftly responded to the tragedy with solidarity gatherings held on both Saturday and Sunday nights in Washington Square Park.

Rush preserve plan allows hunting

Down near the Rush-Avon border sits a state-protected swath of prairie-like land, where grasses, hedges, and wildflowers are interspersed with oak trees. It's an oak opening, and there used to be places just like it all across the Midwest and this part of New York.
