THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
Last summer the average price for a gallon of gas in New York was around $2.89 and the price was over $3 per gallon the four years prior to that, according to GasBuddy.com. How has the drop in gas prices to about $2.35 gallon in St. Lawrence County this summer affected your travel plans?
Results will be posted Monday, July 25.
LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:
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). Also, in a county as huge at St. Lawrence, if only one shelter were built, it would be too far away to benefit most of the homeless, officials say.
Do you feel a homeless shelter or shelters should be built in St. Lawrence County, and if yes, how do you feel it should be done?
