THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
The Ogdensburg Bridge and Port Authority has plans to extend the runway at Ogdensburg International Airport enough to allow an airline with jets to offer passenger service there. Since then, Massena Town Supervisor Joseph Gray has said he would like a similar arrangement at Richards Field.
Would you favor development at one or both of those airports?
Results will be posted Monday, July 28.
LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:
Residents of Canton and Potsdam school districts will have the final say on possible merger.
