    In Rochester, New York, in early December of 2014, after considerable commotion from the city’s liberal religious, non-profit, university and political sectors, the police chief and police union president, in concert with the lieutenant governor, pressured a group of Americans not to exercise their constitutional rights of free speech and peaceable assembly. Weird, huh? And what did these several hundred Americans intend to do? Thank the police. And firefighters, and other first responders. Un-effing-believable. In a city which had featured four consecutive days of protests against the police, a rally for the police was deemed too dangerous. In “the interest...

    ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Jennifer Craig stared at her daughter’s fifth-grade math homework. It was a three-digit multiplication problem, and it seemed simple enough. But her 10-year-old was supposed to solve it by drawing a chart, breaking apart numbers, multiplying, adding and maybe more. “I’m lost,” said Craig, a 31-year-old stay at home mother of three. And that’s how she found herself in her daughter’s classroom Monday night, sitting alongside other parents in child-size chairs and listening as teacher Alyshia Thomas explained new math strategies. Most U.S. public school students are learning math very differently than their parents did, due to...

    UKIP is on course to crush the Conservatives in the Rochester and Strood by-election, according to a new poll last night. The Survation poll for the Unite trade union gave Ukip candidate Mark Reckless a 15-point lead over his former party. The lead has widened by six points since an identical poll last month, and suggests that a huge Tory effort to hold the seat is failing to gain traction. The poll puts support for Ukip on 48 per cent, with the Conservatives on 33, Labour, who came second in 2010, on 16 per cent, the Greens on two percent...

In the upstate New York post, the Providence-born, Rome-trained canonist succeeds Bishop Matthew Clark, who led the 320,000-member diocese for 33 years – a length of tenure practically unheard of in recent times – until his retirement was accepted last September, two months after his 75th birthday.

  • Disturbing Viral Video Shows Middle Schoolers Abusing & Threatening Bus Monitor

    Prepare to see a disturbing video of young people at their worst. This clip of middle schoolers allegedly abusing a bus monitor is so disgusting, so bothersome that it will leave many wondering what has gone awry in our society. Of course, it is merely one of the many tragic, anecdotal instances of human cruelty that we so often see today. The unbelievable clip is painful to watch, as it shows alleged students from Greece Athena Middle School in Rochester, New York (my hometown) take their abuse to horrific levels. The woman purportedly shown in the video, Karen Huff Klein,...

    It’s a first for Wegmans in this area. They’ve put up a sign asking customers buying pork or alcohol not to use a particular checkout line when a Muslim teenager is on duty as the cashier.

    My work is done. Those words were some of the last penned by George Eastman. He included them in his suicide note. They mark an ignoble end to a noble life, the leave taking of a truly great man. The same words could now be said for the company he left behind. My work is done. For all intents and purposes, the Eastman Kodak Company is through. It has been mismanaged financially, technologically and competitively. For 20 years, its leaders have foolishly spent down the patrimony of a century’s prosperity. One of America’s bedrock brands is about to disappear, the...

    (CNN) -- Prosecutors dismissed a charge Monday against a community activist who was arrested while filming a police encounter with her iPod camera because she was concerned it was initiated by racial profiling. "I'm feeling vindicated, I'm feeling energetic" Emily Good, 28, of Rochester, New York, said of the decision to have the charge dropped. Good had been charged with obstruction of governmental administration when she began videotaping the interrogation of a black man by three white officers in front of her house on May 12, she said. "Based upon the evidence, we could not make out the elements of...

    As uncertainty lingers over whether or not there will be a vote in the state senate on a same sex marriage proposal, Bishop Matthew Clark discussed the issue for several minutes today. The leader of the Rochester Roman Catholic Diocese said he's not opposed to extending equal human rights to homosexuals but stressed his belief that redefining marriage is not the way to do that. "(Marriage) is an institution so deeply ingrained in the human spirit that to redefine it in such a short time frame under the very wonderful rubric of human rights, which I thoroughly support, the two...

Young demonstrators were approached by a pro-homosexual man who knocked down and tore to pieces the group’s thirteen foot long...
