New Website Showcases Utica’s Beauty

Recently, USA Today took America on a photo tour of Utica titled "Tough times in Utica". It depicted Utica in an apparent state of disrepair highlighting graffiti and old buildings--the pictures were also taken on a cloudy day nonetheless. The photos were not only seen by USA Today readers, but also readers of the Albany Times-Union saw the photos with the title "Utica struggles". Now, a few days after those photos were published, a new website has emerged to not show the "though times" in Utica, but rather, it embraces the beauty Utica has to offer.

Today: Celebrate with a Limerick

Today is Limerick Day. Yes, a day to celebrate the form of poetry with a very distinct rhyming scheme. A limerick follows this pattern: AABBA. Meaning, the last words of lines one, two and five have to rhyme and the last words in lines three and four have to rhyme. So, to test out my poetry skills, I have decided to celebrate today by writing a limerick about Utica.

Zach’s Thoughts On Using Turn Signals In The Utica Roundabout

Love it or hate it, the Utica roundabout is here to stay, with the finishing touches being added to it daily. I travel Genesee Street on a daily basis and encounter the roundabout every day, as well. Personally, I like the roundabout. It's a change. Although, at times, it can slow down traffic a bit, it's aesthetically pleasing and, I personally feel, it makes things look more open. Now, with that being said, there is something negative I have been noticing, not so much with the roundabout itself, but with the drivers using it. Nobody uses their turn signal. I'm not talking about getting on the roundabout, as it's only one-way; I'm talking about exiting the roundabout.
