Despite the money and politics that have turned the federal kidney dialysis program into a competitive business in America, doctors in Rochester, N.Y., have bucked the tide. Disgusted by fierce competition between hospitals for control of the lucrative dialysis business, doctors nine years ago urged the city's medical community to form a nonprofit corporation to administer dialysis. Now, all five clinics in Rochester are operated not-for-profit. Unlike most for-profit clinics around the country, none of the Rochester clinics reuses dialysis equipment, a controversial practice.

"Listen, kid," said Herb, giving me the Dutch uncle treatment, "you can talk all you want about museums, restaurants and theaters, but nobody is going to come to Rochester just because it's an interesting town. " This was a stunning concession from Herb, a native of Rochester who sometimes carries on as though the Athens of Pericles and the Vienna of Mozart were dreary backwaters compared to "the pearl of Lake Ontario. " "No, kid," he continued. "People are going to come to Rochester to see something they can't see anywhere else in the world.

Paul Rabil isn't as dominating in indoor lacrosse as Sidney Crosby is in the NHL. But he's trying to get there. Thanks to a blockbuster six-player trade with Rochester last month, Rabil will lead the Wings as they open their National Lacrosse League season Friday night against the Buffalo Bandits at the Wells Fargo Center. Rabil, 27, a 6-foot-3, 200-pound transition player, is regarded as lacrosse's best outdoor player, and his indoor game is improving. "Paul's the face of field lacrosse, but he's relatively new to the indoor game and still learning it," said Johnny Mouradian, the Wings coach and general manager.

Carmen Basilio, a genial onion farmer's son who wrested the world middleweight boxing crown from Sugar Ray Robinson in 1957 and lost an equally epic, razor-edge rematch six months later, died Wednesday at age 85 in Rochester, N.Y. Edward Brophy, executive director of the Boxing Hall of Fame in Upstate New York, said Basilio died at a Rochester hospital, where he was being treated for pneumonia. Mr. Basilio lived in the Rochester suburb of Irondequoit and was among the first class of Hall of Fame inductees in 1990, a group that includes Robinson, Muhammad Ali, Rocky Marciano, Joe Louis , and Jake LaMotta.
