St. Lawrence County legislators voted to allow the sale of sparklers and a few other small fireworks in St. Lawrence County for July 4 and New Year’s celebrations. Sales are permitted from June 1 through July 5 and from Dec. 26 to Jan. 2, each calendar year.

Did you purchase fireworks in St. Lawrence County this year?

 Take the NCNow Survery.

Results will be posted Monday, July 5.


Both the Ogdensburg and Massena International Airports are looking to expand their facilities to allow airlines to land at their airports. In Ogdensburg, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) last year approved the city’s request to extend the runway at the airport there by 1,200 feet. Hoping for flights to Myrtle Beach and Florida, the Massena Town Council began creating an advisory committee in May for the Massena International Airport.

Should the Potsdam Municipal Airport, also known as Damon Field, pursue FAA funding so that airlines can land at the facility?
