Essay/Richard Hermann: Washington reprises the old shell game

In 1991, the national debt was $3.665 trillion and the debt-to-GDP ratio was 60%. The percentage of the debt owed to foreigners was skyrocketing. Economists, the media and the handful of politicians who purported to care about debt were freaking out. How, they asked, were we, our children and grandchildren ever going to pay this off? The hand-wringing over the out-of-control red ink was intense.

Olympian Meghan Musnicki is a profile in perseverance

She rowed, rowed, rowed her boat vigorously rather than gently down the stream, teaming with crewmates to win Olympic gold in London in 2012 and in Rio de Janeiro four years later. And she very well could add a third precious medal to her collection this week in Tokyo. But...

CANANDAIGUA — A painting by a Canandaigua Academy student has been selected for a Community Reading Partnership poster to promote the upcoming Children's Book Fest. Ninth-grader Madison Telarico’s winning entry was based on the book, "A Long Walk to Water" by Linda Sue Park.

Essay/Joel Freedman: Thoughts on chickens, turkeys and other abused ‘food animals’

In my March 4 Daily Messenger essay, “Abraham Lincoln was devoted to animals,” I wrote that the Lincoln White House became a sanctuary for animals — cats, dogs, goats, rabbits and horses. When a turkey arrived at the White House destined to become a holiday meal, Lincoln’s son Tad befriended the turkey and named him Jack. Tad interrupted a Cabinet meeting to plead with his father to spare the turkey’s life. The president complied and Jack became a White House resident.

'They're the future': Why Rochester lacrosse is making a comeback in city schools

Jahmeir Warfield was like most kids on the west side of Rochester, spending his days on Genesee Street playing different games and sports. Basketball was popular and he was serious enough about football to play Pop Warner ball with the Baden Street Bulldogs and the Flower City Panthers. But a visit as a fifth-grader to his aunt’s house in Canandaigua brought a glimpse of something new.

Two-time gold medalist Meghan Musnicki ready to compete in Tokyo

Meghan Musnicki couldn’t shake it — though after winning her second Olympic gold medal in 2016, she needed a break. Retirement from rowing didn’t last long, however. “I knew I had to take a year or two off, but the whole time I had the itch to go back,” said Musnicki, 38. A Naples native and Canandaigua Academy graduate, Musnicki began her rowing career at Ithaca College nearly two decades ago. She won gold with the women’s eight crew in the 2012 London Olympics and went on to earn a second gold when the women's eight took its third-consecutive Olympic title in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro.

Essay/Richard Hermann: A better way to select an Olympic team

Donovan Brazier, hands down America’s best-ever 800-meter runner, won’t be going to Tokyo for the Olympic Games. He finished a shocking last in the 800 track trials final at boiling hot Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon. Only the top three finishers at trials make the Olympic team. One race on one day was determinative, despite Brazier’s consistently stellar performances over the last five years, which included a collegiate record, a world championship and an American record (the old record had stood for 34 years).
