I think Abby Wambach's accomplishments are great, but I wonder why she gets so much attention? People seem to forget that Rochester has produced a number of athletes just as accomplished as her. I get the fact she is the best female soccer player and I respect that. But look at some of the other athletes who have come from here, this town has produced TWO NHL team CAPTAINS. And they're both captains of two of the most storied teams in the league, the NY Rangers and the Montreal Canadiens. In fact, this town has produced more pro hockey players than any other kind of athlete. I can think of six guys from here who have played in the NHL in the past 10 years. Again, nothing against Abby Wambach, but I think winning a Stanley Cup is a bigger deal than pro women's soccer.

Please drop "Pittsford's" in future posts. The town would prefer not to be identified with her.

You should call the Town of Pittsford immediately and protest this - if you think it is unfair, if you are a resident.

They passed an amendment at the March, 2013 open meeting distancing the town from her. There were a couple of protesters, but it passed 7-2.

If they actually passed that amendment, it speaks volumes about them, NONE of it good! Distancing the town from her? She's FROM there, there's nothing they can do about that! WHAT is their issue?

The Town was contacted by a number of concerned citizens who felt that Ms. Wambach (and her promoters) would use her links with the town to further her career. As a political entity, we , of course, cannot allow this to happen - because it clearly violates our town charter, Section IV, subpart B&C [pursuant to New York State penal law].

We voted on the matter at our open meeting on March 22, attended by all board members and about 200 interested residents. This action was taken in an open public forum, and was reported in our minutes, which are available to any interested parties.

This action was widely circulated to the local news agencies. If you feel the need to discuss it, and you are a resident of Pittsford, please call our office.

The restaurant is in deep cr@p.
Bad service, bad environment, bad food.
and those pesky bills & taxes keep getting in the way.
Inability to pay one's bills is a great recipe for: FAIL!!
I predict a closure SHORTLY after the PGA.
