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.”

School bus slides off road in Webster

Nearly two dozen students were aboard a Webster school bus that slid off the road Wednesday morning. It happened just before 9 a.m. on Monroe-Wayne County Line Road.

The school bus was on its way to Schlegel Road Elementary School, when it slid off the road into a ditch. No one was hurt and police tell News10NBC the weather was a factor.

A tow truck had to be called to help the bus out of the ditch. The students were taken to a group home to wait for transportation. Some students were picked up by parents and others were picked up by another bus and taken to school.

News10NBC asked the District why they didn’t close schools today and they said at that time, there was no snow and conditions did not lend themselves to closing. School officials say this was an isolated incident with unforeseen snow bursts.
