Changes in the administration of the STAR Tax exemption have reportedly caused problems for people who had to pay taxes up front, then wait for reimbursements from the state which have been delayed. The star exemption provides a significant savings in school taxes for property owners. In the wake of the problems Assemblywoman Addie Jenne has called for the state to revert to the former system in which the exemption was taken off the amount owed.

Do you agree with Jenne’s proposal?

An outdoor guide who came under fire for allowing hunting dogs to run where property owners don’t want them says reducing the coyote population in St. Lawrence County is important, even if people are irritated when dogs run on their land. The Department of Conservation allows dogs released on land where they have permission to hunt to legally cross onto other property where they are not wanted. But, the dog owner could be charged with trespassing if it is “foreseeable” that the dogs would go where they are not wanted, a DEC spokesman said.

Do you agree with the DEC law?
