Kingdom Ventures International Marketplace - Week 4!

Time is running out! There are only FIVE DAYS left to shop our International Marketplace in Gates! We've marked down a number of items by 30%. These are items such as carvings, plates, and cushtions, that are too difficult to take with us on our "traveling road show". It's time to move these items "out" to make room for now, so YOU get the benefit!!

Don't forget, we're only open until 6pm THIS COMING SUNDAY (11/28) and we're closed on…

Monroe County Pop Warner Champs

I am happy to announce that the Rochester Rams are the MONROE COUNTY CHAMPS-Pop Warner Football! Several past players are now coaches for the team. Couldn't get D & C or news channels to report/cover it. I'm sure if one of the boys had committed a crime it would have been front page news! Southwest Colts gave em a run for their money...............GO KIDS!

Early-morning Shopping Anyone?

We just entered Week 3 of Kingdom Ventures' International Marketplace (Westgate Plaza in Gates)!

We have a Special Opportunity for those of you who are early risers! TOMORROW (Tuesday 11/16) you can shop our store starting at 6am! Why, you ask? Because YNN (Cable Channel 9) will be taping segments tomorrow to use on their Early Show. They'll be here with their truck at 5:45 and go on the air at 6am!

Car Chase in PLEX Neighborhood

Some of you may have noticed some intensive police activity in the neighborhood last night. I e-mailed Kris Runyon, the southwest's principal Crime Prevention Officer, about it, and here's what she told me:

Plain clothes officers spotted a vehicle that had been stolen in a gun point robbery earlier that day. They called out on the radio with it and planned to just…

Attempted car jacking on Elmdorf and Woodbine

"About 6 yesterday afternoon 11/7/10. An elderly neighbor getting out of her car and walking to a party on Elmdorf was intercepted by two men. One in front and one behind. They took her keys from her (not her purse). They attempted to start her car, but the alarm went off. They then fled on foot. Police response was quick but the dogs lost the trail. It would seem that…

Congratulations to Mayor Duffy!

Congratulations on the Cuomo/Duffy win in the elections! Was there any question who the best candidates were? No!

Let's hope Lt. Gov.-elect Duffy can fulfill promises to help upstate NY and Rochester rebuild and reach some of its potential. I look forward to seeing him work to do more for Rochester in his new position than he could as Mayor, as has been said. It was heartening to hear Cuomo reiterate this thought tonight after the election. We can only…
