The Dreaded Pothole!

(MEDIA GENERAL) – Potholes are everywhere in western New York, in part, because we had such frigid temperatures the ground froze deeper than most winters. That means now that the thaw is here, those potholes are popping up all over the place.

There are a few easy steps you can take to try to avoid the broken asphalt from destroying your car. A tire expert suggests drivers do these things:

 

  1.       Never brake or speed up when going over a pothole
  2.       Slow down before you hit the pothole, then release brakes – reducing the speed will soften the blow. Driving over a two inch pothole at 50 miles per hour is about the same as dropping your car from five to 10 feet up in the air.
  3.       Properly working shocks and struts will act as cushions upon impact
  4.       Make sure tires are properly inflated; tires that are not properly inflated are more susceptible to pothole damage
  5.       Have your vehicle’s suspension and steering checked to make sure they are working properly
  6.       Make sure your headlights are clean and working. If you can’t see it, you might hit it.

 

If you do these six things, you may avoid further damage to your car during pothole season.

If you are an unlucky driver and hit a pothole,  you should pay attention to how your car feels. If it’s shaking, vibrating or an indicator light is going off, you’ll want to get it checked out immediately. Tire patches you can buy at the store are unlikely to help with a pothole problem. They are made to repair punctures not tears.

However, if you get a puncture, break, bulge or any other damage, have a repair shop or tire store check it out to see if the tire can be fixed instead of having to replace it completely.

1865 Bent's Opera House in downtown Medina
Dear Friends,

In pursuit of our revival of the 1865 Bent's Opera House in downtown Medina, the Orleans Renaissance Group commissioned a professionally produced promotional video.  

It depicts a grandmother figure, Helen Zelazny of Medina, who, having celebrated her wedding at the Opera House in 1951, finds herself rediscovering the space where she spent one of the most important days of her life.  Making this video was special to Helen, as she would have celebrated her 60th anniversary this year, but for her husband's recent passing.  Original photos of her actual wedding at the Opera House are featured in the video. 

The video was produced by Andrew Manzano, a Rochester-area film maker. 

The story is compelling, the imagery and music beautiful, and the overall effort a work of art.  This video highlights not just our vision for rebirth of the building, but also our focus on promoting the arts and media in all its forms, every step of the way.  I hope you enjoy it, and please share!  


Bring it Back!

This short film featuring the Greycliffe String Quartet shows the emotional connection that we can establish with the places where the cherished moments of our lives unfold. The grandmother in the story actually had her wedding reception in Bent's Hall, in Medina, NY, sixty years ago. We see in this short journey the rich history of this treasured structure intertwined with the magic that this place can hold for the coming generations.

Thanks
