The debate over the future of public schools in St. Lawrence County has expanded in the wake of the defeat of a merger plan for Potsdam and Canton school districts. Many believe alternatives to the current system must be considered to keep costs and property taxes down, while many others fear losing educational value.

Which would you prefer for St. Lawrence County public schools?

 Take the NCNow Survery.

Results will be posted Friday, Dec 26.


The Massena Neighborhood Center recently refused to accept donations from the proceeds of a drag show. A neighborhood center official says it is due to what they believe to be the show’s sexually explicit content. One of the show’s organizers, Massena native Michael Cameron, who performs female impersonation under the name Amber Skyy, says the show is mainly cross-dressed men and women lip-syncing songs with comedy sprinkled in.

Should charitable organizations reject donations based on how the money is raised?
