With the New York State Labor Board likely to approve a $15 minimum wage increase for fast food workers, including those in St. Lawrence County, how do you feel about this proposal?

 Take the NCNow Survery.

Results will be posted Monday, Aug. 3.


Potsdam businessman and zoning protester Hank Robar unveiled the latest of his toilet ‘gardens’ recently at 28 Pierrepont Ave. After he didn’t get a zoning reclassification for property he owns at 82-84 Market St., the first porcelain protest appeared there about a decade ago. The village sued him, unsuccessfully, to remove it. Then another ‘garden’ popped up along Maple Street. Now this latest one has village officials concerned by the negative reaction of neighbors.

How do you feel about Robar’s toilet ‘art’ display?
