THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
A Potsdam cemetery was recently criticized for taking down memorial items left on grave plots by friends and family of the deceased. Officials said they made decision to remove the memorabilia because the placement of items had gotten out of control.
Do you think families should be able to place memorial items on graves of loved ones?
Results will be posted Monday, June 6.
LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:
Massena village officials are looking at a “social host” law that would make it illegal for adults to host minors consuming illegal drugs and alcohol. The proposed law would punish adults with possible fines and jail time who “knowingly or unknowingly” allow people under age 21 to consume drugs on their property, according to the Massena Drug Free Coalition. An unlawfully dealing with a minor law already exists, but Massena Mayor Tim Currier says the law is “a lot more narrow.”
Do you feel a social host law is necessary?
