Who produces our news? Does it make a difference?

There's a wealth of news available – far more than 30 years ago. But we have to look for it. And we're impatient.

Rochester supercharges its riverfront plans

Trails, bridges, parks: The city hopes to capitalize on the presence of the Genesee River in some very creative ways.
