In almost any other city in the United States, Terrence Ricci, 39, would have lost his access to affordable medical care soon after he suffered three strokes late last year. Unable to work and no longer eligible for health insurance at a group rate, he would have been caught between two impossible alternatives: purchasing a high-priced individual health insurance policy or paying for his expensive therapy and medicine from his own pocket.

Ever since a 127-year-old condom was found in a time capsule behind the cornerstone of Rochester's City Hall, the Rochester Museum and Science Center has been flooded with calls. "I just haven't been able to figure it out," said Debra Jacobson, the museum's public relations manager. "For whatever reason, people seem fascinated by it. We've even gotten calls from Berlin, Germany." Maybe it's the realization that, between 200 BC and AD 2000, few things have changed as little as the condom.

Marilyn Gonzalez worried that her 2-year-old was coming down with an ear infection. Rather than miss work for a doctor visit, the 25-year-old single mother of two dropped her daughter off as usual at day care and went to work. Little Jaeda was examined soon afterward by a University of Rochester pediatrician and given antibiotics. Using telemedicine tools wielded by a day-care staffer, the diagnosis was done over the Internet.

A prankster in 1873 added a surprise to the city's time capsule filled with seed catalogs, maps and coins: a century-old condom. The condom, made of sheep intestine, was found in an envelope tucked into a book. The envelope was addressed to "The person who opens the box." The capsule, which was buried under City Hall, and its contents, including the prankster's contribution, will go on display at the Rochester Museum and Science Center Feb. 19.

I live at the beach. I counted. I'm six small apartment buildings--that's 14 driveways, a few shrubs and one lamppost--away from a set of stairs that takes me to the sand and sea. Can you tell that living at the beach thrills me? I come from Rochester, N.Y., where the summers are hot and humid and buggy, and the closest manifestation of water is a neighbor's sprinkler or polluted Lake Ontario that my mother never allowed us to go to.
BUSINESS

A judge temporarily barred a national penny-stock brokerage house from soliciting new business in New York state Tuesday after the state attorney general said there was evidence that it had defrauded millions of dollars from thousands of investors. Atty. Gen. Robert Abrams said records showed that Power Securities Corp. of Las Vegas participated in "a massive fraud and swindle" that involved manipulating stock prices, creating artificial markets and marking up stock prices by 100% or more.

Cathy Turner, who helped her teammates to a silver medal Thursday, helped herself to a gold Saturday night. But only after she had first helped herself. Turner of Rochester, N.Y., lost in depression brought on by an identity crisis until four years ago, took her self-discovered cure, speedskating, to its highest level, winning the women's 500-meter short-track race by 0.04 seconds over China's Li Yan.

His skills and appearance are anything but flashy and his name is as generic as they come. Mark Smith has neither the gracefulness of Mike Devereaux, the Beverly Hills 90210 sideburns of Brady Anderson, the speed of Jeffrey Hammonds nor the baseball lineage of Damon Buford, all of whom have played outfield for the Baltimore Orioles this season. But Smith will likely play in the major leagues, if not this season, then next.

Jim Murray, who won the Pulitzer Prize for commentary Thursday, has often said that his job is to make Los Angeles laugh, and for doing that, he has more than earned his pay. But it has not been all yuks and chuckles and shouts of glee. Murray has also dispensed insight and compassion along the way, while putting the pompous in their place and the seemingly profound in perspective.

When Donald Vanhaneghem moved back from California a year ago to be with his family "for the time I have left," he figured it would be impossible to get health insurance, because he has AIDS. But to his astonishment, Vanhaneghem became eligible for a health maintenance organization plan offered by Blue Cross-Blue Shield of Rochester simply by paying $50 to join an insurance purchasing group sponsored by the local Chamber of Commerce.
