Meet Rex!

Meet Rex! Rex is a ten-month-old Pit Bull mix who was brought to the shelter because the landlord wouldn't let him stay. If you're looking for a happy, sweet, and social young dog then Rex is your match! Rex has a beautiful black and white coat, and weighs in at 55 pounds. He's a very lovable dog, and starts to wiggle when you give him attention. He has lots of energy since he is only 10 months old. Rex does get a bit nervous sometimes when being handled so he may take time to warm up to new situations. Training classes would help Rex to build confidence as well as perfect his doggy manners. Lollypop Farm recommends that Rex go to a home with children 6+ and he must meet any dogs already living in the household as he has a bit of a physical play style. If you’re looking for a wonderful dog, come meet Rex at Lollypop Farm in Fairport. This happy boy would make a great addition to any family.

Parents raise concerns over Jeremiah's Tavern proposal in Penfield

Some have voiced their concerns about a proposal to build a new Jeremiah’s Tavern in Penfield, saying it could create problems due to its proximity to a child care facility.

Jeff Reddish, owner of the restaurant, presented his tentative plan to build the restaurant on Route 250, next to Doodlebugs Day Care Center and Preschool during a public hearing before the Penfield Town Board on Wednesday, January 23. If approved, this would be the restaurant’s third location in region.

“I want to stress very clearly that we are definitely not a bar,” said Reddish, saying the establishment has had an “impeccable record” at its Rochester and Gates locations, referring to behavior from customers. “We have gone through great lengths to make sure Jeremiah’s Tavern is family friendly.”
