This Week's Poll
The Rochester City Council has voted to require downtown business buildings to meet certain standards. Among them: brick or decorative masonry is to be used for exterior wall construction, historic ornamental elements are to be repaired or replaced with original construction material and any pitched roof visible from a street or alley is to be composed of one neutral color. Do these requirements strike you as reasonable or as an example of government sticking its nose where it doesn’t belong?

Please select one:
Makes sense to me. Rochester needs a unified, historic look.
No opinion.
I don’t like it. People should be able to do what they want with their property.

Zebras prepping for 2 Plymouth QBs
Plymouth 0-1

at Rochester 0-1

7 p.m.

The RHS pass defense had enough issues to go around during its 51-0 loss to John Glenn Friday, according to coach Joe Grant. The secondary was unable to stick with John Glenn receivers, and the pass rush was unable to upset the timing of Falcon quarterback Grant Borsch.

The solution is to try and simplify the defense further.

"I think the biggest thing is guys just doing their job and not worrying about everybody else," Grant said. "You need to worry about you first. We can sit here and try to tinker and correct and put in a bunch of different coverages, but if a guy runs straight by you, that's a lot of want-to right there."
