THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
Due to an extremely warm winter, many winter activities and events have been put on hold or cancelled, including the annual St. Lawrence River Walleye Association Northern Pike Challenge event.
What winter activities do you miss doing most as a result of a warmer North Country winter?
Results will be posted Monday, Feb. 15.
LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:
Police and emergency responders who administered Naloxone to people suffering opiate or opioid overdoses in St. Lawrence County have saved at least five lives since 2014. The drug neutralizes the effect of narcotics like morphine, fentanyl, oxycodone and heroin, but some police agencies in the county do not carry it.
Do think all law enforcement officers and emergency responders should be trained to administer Naloxone?
