Hi South Westerners, and Location 19er's!
For those of you that remember us, Anthony and I are returning! After four years away from Rochester, we have decided to come "home". I have accepted a wonderful job in Fairport, and we will be back in the city by the end of July. Currently I am staying with a friend in the Beechwood neighborhood, and Anthony is still in Binghamton until we move.
Anthony is doing better, but stills manages with extreme pain throughout… Continue

Hey Location19er's! I just wanted to give you all an update as to what and where Anthony and I are up to. Many of you may remember that Anthony was not feeling well as we were planning our move out to Seattle in June. Well about 2 weeks before we were to drive across country he took a turn for the worse. We ended up moving to Binghamton NY where we have been staying with family for the last month and a half.
Anthony is doing better, due to medication, but is still in pain, and can not… Continue

Dear Location19 members,
I have been worrying about how to tell
you all this for sometime, and as many of you have noticed, Anthony and I
have listed our house for sale. I will be graduating at the end of May,
and for employment and educational reasons, we have decided that we
will be relocating to Seattle, WA this summer.
This was a hard
decision to make, and we have been debating the idea since I started
school in 2006. But as you may know, the economy… Continue

From the 19th Ward Community Association:
As many of you already know, Bill Sullivan (son of Barb & Bill, husband to Juliet and father to daughters Molly & Josie) suffered a massive hemorrhage in his brain early yesterday morning. He has survived surgery to relieve the pressure and this morning has shown a couple of small but encouraging signs of responsiveness. His condition is still quite grave, however, and the family would like their friends and… Continue

Ask for a tree and, within an hour, you have offers of 2 artificial and one real tree. You have to love the 19th Ward! The Library is now well treed. Thank you to our generous neighbors!
The Arnett Branch Library’s Christmas tree was destroyed in a basement flood last spring. The kids really look forward to decorating, and I was wondering if anyone has a tree languishing in their attic that they aren’t using. It would have a… Continue

When I sit in the front windows at Boulder I have seen to many near misses. And have been subject to a near miss crossing the street in that area as well. My thoughts and prayers to the victim.
