    The Rochester Board of Public Works and Safety on Thursday approved the hiring of two full-time firefighters.
    Fire Chief Tom Butler told The Sentinel he was surprised by the board’s decision, as he was only looking to fill one open spot. The vacancy on the Rochester Fire Department was left by Dan Melton, who retired from the department in early April after 29 years of service.
    The works board met in executive session prior to its regular meeting Thursday to interview Brandon Cody, of Mentone, and Jamie Gagnon, of Akron, for the position.

    HELSINKI (AP) — President Donald Trump arrived in Finland on Sunday for a closely watched one-on-one summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, hours after telling an interviewer that he was going into the meeting today with “low expectations.”

    On the way to meet with a leader who has cracked down on the press in his country, Trump tweeted that the U.S. news media is the “enemy of the people” and complained that “No matter how well I do at the Summit” he’ll face “criticism that it wasn’t good enough.”
