  It’s never easy to talk about race in our community.  Several Syracuse arts organizations are collaborating to bring together exhibits and performances about Apartheid, civil rights and identity to help that conversation.

With a name like Winterfest, you've got to expect a certain amount of snow and cold in Hanover Square for the annual Chili Cook-Off.

Syracuse kept chipping away at Pittsburgh's nine point lead, turning another disappointing showing into a dramatic comeback.

But like so often this season for the Orange, it came up just a little bit short.

A last minute comeback was derailed by a illegal screen call on Rakeem Christmas with 35.1 seconds left and the Pittsburgh Panthers escaped the Carrier Dome with a 65-61 win to sweep the season series and bolster their NCAA Tournament resume.

In this edition of Jazz Journeys, you'll hear my interview with legendary pianist and composer Ramsey Lewis who will be celebrating his 80th birthday in 2015.  He discusses everything from his album of all original material to exuding class on stage.

The last two Syracuse point guards are both headed to Milwaukee as part of a three-team trade, according to an ESPN report.  Michael Carter-Williams and Tyler Ennis were traded to the Bucks on Thursday, along with center Miles Plumlee.  The ex-Orange stars will play for former point guard Jason Kidd, whose team has a 30-23 record this season and sits at sixth place in the Eastern Conference.

Not all students in Onondaga County are truly taking a full winter break. Instead, twenty-four students were seizing the opportunity Thursday and Friday to get introduced to medical career fields. The 13th annual MASH camp has been held at Upstate University Hospital's Community General Campus every year.  It’s a chance for Rural Metro’s Ed Moser to provide them first hand-experience. 

"My job is to teach them what it's like to be an EMT or a paramedic so we get to play with all the toys here today. Everyone wants to see how their heart rate is."
