Column: Hey, wake up and smell the roses

You already know I have a bitter taste about President Trump. Besides being an extensive liar and cheat, he has all but ruined alliances and eventually the economy. Much like dictators of the past, Trump used public frustrations to gain power and has lead the trail of confusion and finger pointing to bolster his followers […]

Governor Cuomo, Mark A. Knapp is dead because of you!

All too often, government makes and pushes new laws through without thinking about the consequences. What sounds good on paper, may not pass the smell test in reality. Such is the case of Heriberto R. Perez- Velasquez. Due to some of the new reforms to the New York State Criminal Justice System, the family of […]

Column: That Night at Frontier...

Imagine sitting at Frontier Field on May 19, 2010 and someone from the future whispers in your ear, “You’re watching a future World Series MVP on the hill tonight.” That’s all you’d need to hear to make your night worth while.  Back in 2010, Stephen Strasburg pitched to a sold-out crowd at Frontier Field. Wednesday […]

Column: Disappointment and Desperation

The NFL season isn’t even halfway, and two cities with great expectations are already panicking.  No, not the Dolphins. Part of the reason Adam Gase is coaching in New York and not Miami is because he disagreed with the franchise’s idea to tank the 2019 season. Enter former New England Patriots defensive coordinator, Brian Flores, […]

Three Point Stance

Isn’t it fascinating that only three of baseball’s ten highest-paid players are still playing in October? Two of them are pitchers and one will have played fewer games this past season than your average starting NFL edge rusher.  If you guessed Clayton Kershaw, the ageless Justin Verlander, and the useless Giancarlo Stanton, you’d be correct.  […]

The History...the breakdown

I attended a luncheon this past week and it was mentioned that probably 90% of Wayne County residents, especially of the millennium age, know ‘Jack Squat’ about Wayne County. For instance, Wayne County is named for American Revolutionary War hero and American statesman., General Anthony Wayne (AKA Mad Anthony) Wayne died in 1796 while on […]

This writer has a new streaming show called “Overtime” on Roc Sports Network. You can “like” Roc Sports Network on Facebook and catch the show Monday nights at 7. Longtime comic and political satirist, Bill Maher, has hosted a show called “Real Time” on HBO for well over a decade and not only has an […]

I love you honey, but...

On Tuesday night Wife Patti and myself went to see the musical La Cage aux Folles at GEVA Theater. Before the show we went to Kaino’s Greek Restaurant, located on the Genesee River at 284 Exchange Boulevard in Rochester. The restaurant bills itself as the Only Authentic Greek/Mediterranean Cuisine with some American Flare. Trust me, […]

Dramatic soybeans (9/8/19)

Soooo, what could I possibly write about soybeans? That innocuous little bean that has such an impact on our lives. Admit it, while growing up, did any of us know anything about soybeans? According to soybean history, they originated in China and in 2853 Emperor Sheng-Nung of China named five sacred plants – soybeans, rice, […]

Conscience

Play along with me here. Imagine a child, alone in a room, just standing there. Okay, now put that in the back of your mind and I will continue. These are some   Facebook notifications I have received recently. Why should we fund immigrant health care, while our veterans suffer with poor health care? Actually, […]
