THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
A number of towns in St. Lawrence County will host Memorial Day parades, ceremonies and observances this year. "Do you plan to attend local Memorial Day activities?"
Results will be posted May 29.
LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:
The Hopkinton Town Board will be powerless to override the St. Lawrence County Planning Board should it make a recommendation on the proposal to not expand the wind overlay zone. That’s because two councilmen are abstaining from all wind related issues coming before the governing body because members of their families are leaseholders with the wind company proposing a wind farm. Local boards can override county planning board recommendations, but only with a supermajority vote, or four out of five possible votes on the town board, which is not possible in this case. For more, see story.
How do you feel this situation, and similar circumstances in the future, should be handled?

Pictured are the April Students of the Month, Siara Vebber and Chase Sweeney. They were chosen student of the month for “Think Win-Win,” the fourth character trait from the book "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens" by Sean Covey. This trait is so important that the school did a school-wide activity in the high school and nominated students based on these activities.
