Results will be posted Monday, July 25.


As many as 1,000 people might be homeless in St. Lawrence County at some point each year, but there is no official homeless shelter here. ;Nobody wants it in their neighborhood,; said Jeffrey Reifensnyder, executive director of the Massena Independent Living Center (MILC).
