City group seeks tough action on drugs

A group of city residents is asking state and local law enforcement to take a much tougher approach to eliminating illegal drug sales and use in Rochester, which they say is out of control.

Religious liberty talk set

President Trump has talked repeatedly about building a wall on the US border with Mexico, but he's been mum on the institutional wall he's been tearing down: the separation of church and state.
