THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
A SUNY Potsdam professor received two threatening notes last week that included racist and homophobic remarks and violent threats. The threats prompted 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?
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?

'Another wonderful spring wildflower. This plant is one of my favorite because it is so unique,' Canton photographer Natalie Aldrich said. 'The flower is vase-like with a lid. This plant is about 5 to 6 inches high but some can grow to over a foot high. The Remington Trail has them but I took this photo behind my house. In the fall it has a cluster of brilliant red berries on the top where the flower used to be.'View enlarged photo.
