St. Lawrence County Legislator John Burke, R-Norfolk, wants to prohibit the sale of tobacco products for those under 21, but County Legislative Chair Kevin Acres, R-Madrid, says the proposed law is “government overreach.” St. Lawrence County legislators agreed to hold a public hearing in June on a resolution that would raise the age requirement on purchasing tobacco products. Burke says the law would include prohibition of sales of e-cigarettes to those under 21 as well.

Parishville planners recently drafted a wind power generation zoning law that would put strong limitations on construction of towers in the town limits. However a state law, known as Article 10, gives state officials the final say over where a proposed tower can be erected.

Who do you think should have the final say on wind projects?
