THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:

A SUNY Potsdam professor received two threatening notes last week that included racist and homophobic remakes and violent threats. The threats a rally, vigil and community-wide petition signed by hundreds people. In response, Watertown Mayor Jeff Graham says SUNY Potsdam officials overreacted and need to 'toughen up.'

Do you feel SUNY Potsdam officials handled the threats appropriately?

Take the NCNow Survery.

Results will be posted Monday, May 11.

LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:

Massena school district’s director of food services says the school is owed nearly $18,000 in unpaid lunch charges and the district needs to limit how many meals students can charge. In grades seven through 12, they can charge $10. After that, students get an austerity meal, consisting of a peanut butter sandwich, cheese stick and fruit cup. Potsdam and Ogdensburg schools limit charges at all levels.

How do you think St. Lawrence County schools should handle charges of school lunches?
