Matthew Peacock, who took the photo, said the array’s size is "very impressive." Clarkson says the university plana on getting 10 percent of its electric needs from the solar farm, maybe as soon as November. See our story from last year.View enlarged photo.
THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
The Massena Village board may consider limiting the number of dogs one can own. Police Chief Tim Currier told the board that there is nothing on the books restricting the number of canines one can own. He said there is only a ban on kenneling.
Do you think towns or villages should be able to cap the number of dogs a person can own?
Results will be posted Monday, Sept. 29.
