City Newspaper runs a Best of Rochester poll each year. Most of those years I took a pass, reserving, of course, the right to be outraged at the results. But I saw a Tweet about the 2013 poll the other day and decided it was time I supported my favorite restaurants, retail stores, and sexy tattoo-artist bartenders with more than just my patronage. About 67 categories in, I found something I felt was even more important to support. …
Nancy Roberts, a board member of the North Winton Village Association, passed away June 11, 2013. She will be missed.
“Here in Rochester she enjoyed serving as a board member of the North Winton Village Association – most recently as organizer of its annual plant sale.”

St. John the Evangelist Church Hall
Be Safe, Be Heard, Make a Difference.
In collaboration with Browncroft Neighborhood
Association (BNA) and North Winton Village Association
(NWVA), RPD Chief James Sheppard will be bringing his “Chief on
the Road” to the neighborhood on Monday, April 23rd at St. John the
Evangelist Church Hall on Humboldt Street. (Access to the Church
Hall is via downstairs or elevator from the back parking area door.)
All are welcome.
6:30 P.M. The event’s format will start with Chief Sheppard’s 30-
minute presentation on several relevant topics affecting the neighborhoods
including a brief Q&A. This will be followed at
7:00 P.M. by TWO parallel activities, either:
1.) Chief Sheppard is having private 5 minute (one-on-one)
meetings with individuals who have pre-scheduled for one of the
available time slots until 8:00 P.M. Sign up for a private (one-on-one)
meeting will be by email request to: firstname.lastname@example.org;
Phone: (585) 482-2441; or at the door. (Please supply name, address,
and phone.) Slots will be assigned in the order received – first come
first serve. A short waiting list will be created for any new openings.
2.) Concurrently, our sector’s Crime Prevention Officers
(CPO) will provide a presentation on prevention, security check opportunities,
and introduce some of our Patrol Officers serving the
area. This program portion will end around 7:45 PM with refreshments
and some social time.
8:00 P.M. The Chief will give a closing wrap up of the evening’s
sessions highlighting any follow up activity he wishes to do.
UPDATE: Judge Nasser gave one week for the attorney of the accused to further explain the options to him. The accused remains in custody. The next court appearance is Friday, Oct. 21 at 10 a.m.
We wish the best to the RPD re: the break-ins as another one happened recently on McBeth Street.
The North Winton Village Association Safety Committee will be going to family court Friday, October 14 for the appearance before Judge Nasser of a young person who has terrorized the East High School area.
The North Winton Village Association, East High School, RGRTA, and the Central Office of the Rochester Central School District have been working together to see that students are supervised after school waiting for the bus. The Association also expects students to be in school and not roaming the neighborhood–East High School has a closed campus during school hours.
