The city should do an 'arts impact' study

The city should do an 'arts impact' study

City Council's big, ornate Chambers in City Hall was packed last week with people concerned about the future of the key downtown piece of real estate known as Parcel 5.

How to reduce poverty: Boost workers' wages

The statistics shouldn't be a surprise to any of us; many of them have been in earlier reports. But still, the numbers are staggering.

Police and community: The path to real reform

Police-community relations in Rochester have been under stress for decades. And that stress probably increased a notch this past weekend, when a Rochester police officer was shot while he was responding to an unrelated 911 call.

Trump camp takes aim at the arts, again

In times of political fever pitch, there's typically a witch hunt directed at the arts. It begins with defunding the arts as a whole, as though they were a mere frill — but the real goal is to snuff out important, critical art.
