Your Turn: Your Feedback On Lamphere, Sales Tax & Theater


He's well known for owning a trucking company. But now Dean Lamphere is accused of running a second, much more sinister business - a prostitution ring which may have involved dozens of women. One woman says Lamphere repeatedly forced her to have sex to pay off a debt:

There may be good news for a historic, yet deteriorating building in Sackets Harbor. One man says he wants to purchase the old theater at Madison Barracks so that it won't be torn down:


We have already lost too many historic buildings in this area! The theater is a gem in the rough and I would love to see it restored!

If someone is willing to take the time and the money to restore a piece of history, then why not let him? Should be a no-brainer.
