The next time you vote, please take a minute to imagine that you are the parent of a border agent who was killed by illegal guns made available by our government. Restore constitutional values to our government.
A review of the school calendar revealed 179 scheduled days with 11 scholastically empty half days and four if-needed snow days. Factor in those days preceding major holidays and the first introduction to the school year, can anyone say the taxpayers and children get their money’s worth?
People are not aliens or Immigrants. They are here trying to help there families back home or have a family here.They are hard workers and very reliable and helpful to there employers.

Restoring fairness to the tax code by making real-estate investors follow the present tax laws would help.

I am so amazed that the City of Plattsburgh can’t bring in anything to promote more entertainment for the local people, but they can sure put a bar at the City Beach. Don’t you think there are enough DWIs now? Wait for a Drowning While Intoxicated.
When will people learn how to drive through a traffic circle? Today, I was well into the circle on U.S. Avenue when a woman came charging into the circle from the Air Base. I almost broadsided her. The car in the circle has the right of way.
