Feathered Friends: What’s coming to your feeding station?

The eastern towhee is a very common spring and summer bird, rather secretive, and prefers the thickets and wood margins. So "Feathered Friends" columnist Hans Kunze was surprised to find one near his bird feeding station last month.

If you feed the birds, you are likely having great results during the last month or so with several snowfalls and overall cooler weather that February has brought us.

Our Story

An award-winning weekly newspaper and community website providing a voice for Livingston County and the Western Finger Lakes since 1989.

Since its founding, The LCN has evolved into a media company with video production, digital platforms that include its website and social media platforms; and niche publications devoted to local business and agriculture, along with multiple annual special sections. The staff has been recognized with multiple awards for writing, photography, and advertising

The Livingston County News debuted May 4, 1989, after a hectic six week run from design to startup. The front page reported on then Livonia Town Supervisor Daniel C. West's resignation to take an appointment as head of the Rochester region office of the state Workers Compensation Board and a measles outbreak at SUNY Geneseo. There was also a heart-tugging feature on the local dog pound.

Oh, yeah, there was also a story introducing the Livingston County News -- it was not yet referred to in shorthand as The LCN.

At the time, starting a print newspaper was a bold move. In the late 1980s and into the early 1990s, newspapers were faced with skyrocketing newsprint costs. Then -- as many print papers are doing now in the face of a saturated media world, declining revenue and increasing newsprint costs -- papers were looking for ways to contain expenses.

But a marketing study found that Livingston County residents wanted more local news and the Johnson Newspaper Corp., which has been the paper’s only owner, obliged.

The first few years were admittedly a struggle to build circulation and recognition. By the mid-1990s the paper was beginning to take off and at one point saw circulation double in less than a year.

In the not-so-old days, a weekly newspaper was published once a week. But in the digital era, where social media drives so much of people's newsgathering, even a weekly publication can have a daily presence. LCN maintains a frequently-updated website, www.thelcn.com, has an active Twitter feed that publishes links to the day's headlines, and a page that shares stories of interest to Livingston County and allows readers to interact with the paper and each other.

The LCN has established itself as the leading news source in Livingston County. The publication is well respected by readers and other media. The LCN has been voted the county’s favorite media three years in a row in a Livingston County Area Chamber of Commerce poll.

The paper’s success is attributed to a desire to feed the community's demand for news by providing information and quality journalism from journalists who are familiar with the community.

What's up with all the police on main street mt. Morris yesturday.. Why no coverage
My husband and I were hiking at Letchworth State Park near Mt. Morris when, around 4:45 pm, we heard several sirens. The police scanner indicated emergency personnel were being summoned for a gorge rescue near the police headquarters at the park. We later drove by and saw emergency vehicles there, but haven’t been able to find any news yet about it. Does anyone have any info on this? Thanks.

What happened on East Lake Rd in Livonia last night? My wife heard a gunshot around 2:30 this morning that woke her up. Then there were about 5-6 sheriff cars they're all night with the house "scene taped" off. I was shrugged off when I asked what happened and are we safe.
