Working Here: Need for nurses growing — Not everyone facing a terminal illness is cared for in a hospital. Some get a visit by a nurse making house calls to help with medications, coordinate services, answer questions for worried family members and more. When Jason Kowalski visits patients, they are often facing a grave diagnosis.

Clausen: Lima worker rescues unresponsive man — Ben Luft was driving down Meadowlark Drive in Avon, Livingston County, when he saw someone down on the ground. At first, he thought the elderly man had tripped over something, but as he pulled closer, something wasn't right. He stopped the truck, jumped out and checked on Don Polle, a 84-year-old who had collapsed on the road.

Working Here: Serious shortage of skilled auto techs — Ryan Lynch saw a perspective of Hollywood not many got a chance to see when shooting for "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" took over downtown Rochester two years ago. The Rochester resident saw it from inside a black BMW, as police cars screamed by in pursuit of a runaway truck for the opening scenes of the movie.

Urban League getting $1M+ job training grant — The Urban League of Rochester will receive more than $1 million to prepare youths with a criminal background enter the workforce upon release, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. The $1.05 million grant was announced on Thursday by the Department of Labor.

Bottled water recall includes 14 brands — A recall that saw Wegmans Food Markets pull some of its bottled spring water over potential E. coli concerns also includes several other grocers, according to Canadian-based water supplier. Niagara Bottling LLC said it issued the voluntary recall of spring water produced at its two Pennsylvania plants from June 10 to 18after being informed that there was evidence of E.

Volunteers of America closing area 11 thrift stores — The Volunteers of America Upstate New York will close several thrift stores and other operations to refocus its efforts on programs that serve more than 6,000 people annually, according to a statement by the agency. "Unfortunately, most people don't really know about our programs, because the first thing that comes to mind when they think of Volunteers of America is our stores," JoAnne M.

Allegiant adding nonstop Rochester flights — Snowbirds leaving Rochester are getting another travel option. Nevada-based Allegiant Travel Co. will start nonstop service from the Greater Rochester International Airport to Fort Lauderdale, Florida beginning on Oct. 9, the company announced in a press release.

ViewSport lands big deal with U.S. Army — All sweat, no regret. The motivational messages on ViewSport T-shirts are meant to be bold, eye-catching and inspire hard work. They also are designed to appear through patent-pending sweat-activated technology woven into textiles manufactured at Tiny Fish Printing on Garson Avenue in Rochester.

Clausen: Restroom choice eased for transgender workers — Picking which bathroom to use at work just got a little easier for members of the transgender community. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration recently issued a four-page guide on restroom access for transgender workers, stating that everyone should have access to the facilities in the workplace that correspond to their gender identity.

M&T adds microchip technology to debit cards — M&T Bank customers are getting new debit cards with microchip technology designed to fight fraud and increase security. The Buffalo-based bank already is issuing the new cards to customers and expects to issue them to current customers when their current debit card expires.
