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?

SUNY Canton's Student Government Association (SGA) revealed a new monument Feb. 2, the Memorial Rock, in the campus Peace Garden. The plaque on the rock says, 'Forever Remembered, Forever Missed.' 'Student Elliot Mullings passed away days after the spring 2014 semester was over, so we began a new academic year with the loss still heavily lingering in everyone’s mind,' said SGA President Khaina Solomon. Mullings, a junior studying criminal justice, was very active and well known on campus. He died in May 2014. Students plan to use the rock for Sept. 11 ceremonies and as a possible practice area for funeral services administration students. From left, Devine Pearson, Khaina A.
