  • Neighborhood Reacting After Three Shootings in a Week

    Share Button

    The 14621 Neighborhood Association says the responsibility lies not only on police, but also on the community to end the violence.

    Residents and community leaders that live in the northeast side of Rochester are talking about the three shootings that all happened within the week. The 14621 Neighborhood Association says the responsibility lies not only on police, but also on the community to end the violence.

    Ernest Flager grew up on the Northeast side of the city.

    “When we look at the neighborhood itself, we look at boarded up houses, you see kids down the street, and they got nothing to do. It kind of bothers me,” Flagler said.

    Flagler is the former board president of the 14621 Neighborhood Association.

    “You get tired of hearing about all the violence in the neighborhood,” Flagler said; a neighborhood where Flagler says violence occurs daily.

    “When you have drug addicts, kids, and gang members running around, you’re going to have problems,” Flagler said.

    Three young men accused of raping a 13-year-old girl last summer pleaded not guilty today in City Court.

    Dakota Hymes, 18, Jaquan Hymes, 20, and Malik Hymes, 19, all of Rockview Terrace, were arrested in connection with the incident this morning. Malik Hymes was charged with first-degree rape and second-degree rape, both felonies, according to City Court records. Dakota Hymes was charged with first-degree rape and Jaquan Hymes was charged with second-degree rape.

    So what’s your opinion…

    These three young men are guilty until proven innocent. But we can’t help but notice they grew up in the same household and share the same last name. Do you think that their behavior- if proven guilty- is a result of how they were raised? Or do you believe that your parents/ guardians’ ability to raise children have little to do with kids’ poor decision making?

    To be an Iron Chef, it doesn’t hurt to have a little molecular gastronomy at the ready so you can turn plain yogurt, sugar and alginate into spherified yogurt balls and surround them with fresh berries.

    The post-modern dessert helped Edward Rose take top honors at Friday night’s East High Iron Chef Competition, held in the school’s cafeteria. The rest of Edward’s spread included shrimp sliders and baked Cornish game hen with spaetzle.

    The handmade dumplings impressed judge Daisy Martinez. “I can’t believe he made it himself,” said the celebrity cookbook author and cooking show host.

    The first-place prize will help Edward continue his culinary arts education at Monroe Community College, where he now has a scholarship.
