I am an avid deer hunter in St. Lawrence County. My view of the current deer situation is the herd is down considerably in most areas. Why? The seasons are too long, the DEC has tried to please everyo...

The proposed tax increase in Ogdensburg not only unfairly burdens homeowners, but it causes rent to increase. Landlords don't get the STAR program for school taxes and must increase rent to compensate...

About the toilet displays in the Village of Potsdam. They are nothing but demolition garbage that our village leaders have allowed to be left outside with ugly plastic flowers. If the mayor and town l...

I agree that the deer numbers are down and the DEC is in my opinion completely backwards about managing our deer herd. We need antler restrictions, shorter seasons and strict doe management to help br...

Hunters have been killing off all the big bucks for many years now. I am surprised if I see a buck with more than spikes and then some hunter shoots it. The herd near my home used to number upwards of...

As people in Ogdensburg know, winter is here. People need to get out and clear the snow off of their sidewalks. If they do not, people who rely on wheelchairs, scooters, or power chairs can't use the...

The DEC is so stupid: first they don't give out any doe permits to St. Lawrence County. Next they tell hunters that are lucky enough to see bucks to not to shoot them, but to pass on them for more mat...
