Developer: I-Square about 5 years from completion — When there isn't much room for new buildings, old ones get knocked down and bigger and better ones get built. Take the I-Square project in Irondequoit, which saw another tenant open recently. While very much in the early stages of development, the seven-building redevelopment project is transforming a popular area of town near Titus and Hudson Avenues and surrounding the iconic House of Guitars.

Leadership Rochester recruiting 2014 class — Recruitment has begun for Leadership Rochester, a program that helps emerging leaders develop problem solving and critical thinking skills while tackling broader community-based issues.

Instagrammers in Rochester join global InstaMeet — Today anyone with a smartphone and desire can snap up images of our fair city, and on Saturday a group of about 25 photo enthusiasts set out to document their own interpretations of Rochester.

D&C journalists part of Ad Council event — Two journalists from the Democrat and Chronicle Media Group will be panelists Tuesday during a session on advertising, social media and working with the media at an upcoming event by the Ad Council of Rochester.

Rochester has the happiest workers -- really? — Apparently the folks over at CreditDonkey saw Shawn Dunwoody's Happy Rochester edition of Pharrell Williams hit song, or maybe they simply decided to ignore all the complaining over our long-harsh winter. Regardless, the financial services firm recently named Rochester as the happiest city in America. Buffalo was No. 2.

At all costs, keep the Bills in Buffalo — We knew Ralph Wilson wasn't going to live forever, but when news spread of his death last week everything else seemed to stop for me. It's not that I ever met him in person, except for the time I saw him getting a ride in a golf cart after a game, or the time I went to Canton, Ohio, to see him get inducted in the Pro Football Hall of Fame with Bruce Smith.
