Consumer Investigation: This Rochester Renter had a soccer ball-sized hole in her ceiling. She says the city did little

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — If you live in the Flower City, chances are you're renting your home. And half of Rochester renters live in substandard housing. This is an issue I’ve been investigating for months. While touring rentals I've seen everything from rodents to roof leaks to rotting floors. Some renters tell me they've been trying to get their homes repaired for years, and the city has done little more than cite violations and issue fines.

Jumping, hungry ‘snake worms’ are here to make life hell

When gardeners say, “Jump!” these worms say, “How high?” Experts at the California Department of Food and Agriculture are warning gardeners about “aggressive” snakelike worms called Amynthas agrestis, or the Asian jumping worm. But “jumping worm” is putting it nicely. The squirming monsters are known to jump up to a foot off the ground. “True to their name, they jump and thrash immediately when handled, behaving more like a threatened snake than a worm, sometimes even breaking and shedding their tail when caught,” the CDFA said in a report, adding that they have been known to jump off the ground or out of bait cans. They also have a big appetite and are “extremely active and aggressive,” the CDFA warned in the report. The worms hail from east Asia, particularly Japan and the Korean Peninsula, and entered the US in the 1900s through the soil in potted plants, according to the US Department of Agriculture. Since then, the invasive nibblers have been spotted in 34 states, most recently in California. The tweet above from last year shows jumping worms found along Irondequoit Creek in Webster, New York.

An Ode to Brooklyn Hots, the Best Place to Eat Dive-y Food and Drink Natural Wine in New York City

Next door to Clinton Hill’s beloved bottle shop, Radicle Wines, you’ll find the team’s unexpectedly magical BYOB restaurant called Brooklyn Hots. The menu highlights the indulgent regional cuisine of Rochester, N.Y., through a hero dish, the Trash Plate, which — according to the Brooklyn Hots team — is what you eat after a night of binge drinking Bud Heavies or working a long shift. It usually features macaroni salad, fries, and two cheeseburgers, all slathered in ketchup, mustard, onions and meat sauce, lovingly slopped together in a styrofoam to-go box.
