Photographer Natalie Aldrich recently spotted this pair of birds on Brewer Road in Canton. "Introducing Mr. (on the left) and Mrs. American Kestrel (aka sparrow hawk)," Aldrich wrote. "They had a little dispute about who was going to sit atop the telephone pole, Mrs. won out. It seems every time you see birds lately they are paired up. Hummm, it is spring and we all know what that means."View enlarged photo.
THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
St. Lawrence County lawmakers have scheduled a public hearing for a new law that will put more pressure on those who don’t pay their taxes on time by making it easier for the county to remove residents from properties it acquires from back taxes. The law would allow the county to take legal action on individuals occupying properties that have been lost due to delinquent taxes.
Do you agree with this proposed law?
Results will be posted Monday, April 20.
LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:
Do you believe public schools in St. Lawrence County received enough aid from the state budget?
