Hermon-DeKalb Cub Scout Pack 144 will make history as the first northern New York pack to allow girls into the Cub Scout program. The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) decided October 2017 to officially allow girls into the traditional boys’ program of Cub Scouts starting September 2018, with the plans of allowing older girls to join the Boy Scout program in 2019.

The long-discussed issue of improving road transportation across the North Country gets its next airing Jan. 30 in Canton at an information meeting hosted by the state Department of Transportation on their latest effort, the North Country Access Improvements Study.

This latest study, being generated by a Stakeholder Advisory Committee of village, town and county officials, business leaders and transportation professionals, is concentrating on ideas around improving U.S. Rt. 11 between Canton and Potsdam, possibly with bypass features for both villages.
