THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:

Based off of news stories of testimony and closing arguments of the murder trial for Oral ‘Nick’ Hillary, who is accused of killing 12-year-old Garret Phillips of Potsdam on Oct. 24, 2011, what verdict do you think Judge Felix Catena will hand down?

Take the NCNow Survery

Results will be posted following the verdict.

LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:

New York State exempts heating fuels from their four-percent sales tax, but counties can charge sales tax, and St. Lawrence County does.

Based on the financial situation of the county and its residents, do you think St. Lawrence County should charge residents with sales tax on all heating fuels even though they do not have to?
