THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
Superintendents at Canton and Potsdam schools say a study of merging the two schools districts shows a joint school district could reduce tax rates and offer more educational opportunities to students. Costs for transportation and time students will spend riding buses would remain close to the same. More programs and sports teams could be added if the merger passes but competition for spots on sports teams would likely increase.
Do you feel the merger is in the best interest of both schools?
Results will be posted Monday, Oct. 27.

"Recently as I was driving home from work, the sky presented interesting contrasts. Overhead, it was ominous, but off in the distance, it was clear and blue, with wispy clouds," said photographer Don Straight of Winthrop. "I could even see the mountains far off! The line of autumn color and the green grass in the foreground completed the somewhat strange image, and I had to stop and capture it," he said. The picture was taken on U.S. Highway 11 near Winthrop.View enlarged photo.
