New York man charged in local musician’s fatal stabbing


ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — A New York man accused of fatally stabbing a 78-year-old musician was charged with murder Friday morning.

Pedro Santiago Sr. was found bleeding in the front doorway of his Rochester home Wednesday afternoon, Rochester Police Investigator Frank Camp said

Authorities charged 30-year-old Jose Sanchez with second-degree murder in connection with Santiago’s death, the Democrat & Chronicle reported.

“We are better off as a community as a result of his dedication to our music, tradition and culture,” said Orlando Ortiz, president of the annual Puerto Rican Festival of Rochester.

He added, “His passion for Puerto Rican music was evident throughout many, many different parts of the Rochester community.”

El alcalde Warren recuerda a todos los residentes que practiquen el distanciamiento social


(Jueves, 19 de marzo de 2020) - El alcalde Lovely A. Warren les recuerda a todos los residentes que el distanciamiento social debe practicarse en todo momento, incluso en lugares al aire libre.


"Durante estos tiempos difíciles, la prevención de la propagación de COVID-19 siempre debe estar en nuestras mentes y en nuestras acciones", dijo el alcalde Warren. "Si bien debemos continuar funcionando y vivir nuestras vidas, debemos hacerlo mientras ejercemos la máxima precaución, y eso incluye practicar el distanciamiento social para mantener a salvo a nosotros mismos, a nuestras familias y a nuestros vecinos".


Con las escuelas y universidades cerradas, y un número creciente de lugares de negocios y entretenimiento del área que cierran temporalmente sus puertas, reducen el personal o permiten que los empleados trabajen desde casa, muchas personas recurren a actividades al aire libre para evitar el aburrimiento y hacer algo de ejercicio.


Los residentes deben recordar que mientras visitan parques públicos, playas u otros tipos de instalaciones recreativas al aire libre, el distanciamiento social todavía juega un papel fundamental para detener la propagación del Coronavirus. Por lo tanto, es mejor evitar las zonas abarrotadas, las actividades deportivas que requieren contacto corporal cercano y las áreas de juego con un gran número de niños.


"Como comunidad, sé que superaremos esta crisis", concluyó el alcalde Warren. "Pero hasta que llegue ese momento, debemos hacer todo lo posible para garantizar la salud, la seguridad y el bienestar de todos nuestros ciudadanos".


Mayor Warren Reminds All Residents to Practice Social Distancing

(Thursday, March 19, 2020) – Mayor Lovely A. Warren is reminding all residents that social distancing should be practiced at all times, even at outdoor venues.

“During these challenging times, preventing the spread of COVID-19 should always be on our minds and in our actions,” said Mayor Warren.   “While we must continue to function and live our lives, we must do so while exercising the utmost caution, and that includes practicing social distancing to keep ourselves, our families and our neighbors safe.”

With schools and colleges closed, and a growing number of area business and entertainment spots temporarily shutting their doors, reducing staff or allowing employees to work from home, many people are turning to outdoor activities to ward off boredom and get some exercise.

Residents should remember that while visiting public parks, beaches or other types of outdoor recreational facilities, social distancing still plays a critical role in stopping the spread of the Coronavirus.  Therefore, it is best to avoid crowded areas, sports activities that require close bodily contact and play areas with large numbers of children.

“As a community, I know that we’ll get through this crisis,” Mayor Warren concluded.  “But until that time arrives, we must do all that we can to ensure the health, safety and well-being of all of our citizens.”
