Your Turn: Your Feedback On Teachers, Detour, Lottery & More


Teachers say too much time is being spent on testing and not enough on teaching. Thousands took that message to Albany over the weekend:


It's ridiculous the amount of testing kids go through today! Thank you to the thousands of educators who are standing up to the state for our children!

Road construction workers in Canton are being put in danger by motorists who aren't using a recommended, but voluntary detour:

People, who choose not to use the detour, are self-centered and feel that they should not have to be "put out" by the construction.

If they were so worried about putting people in danger, maybe they might make it a mandatory detour.

A Heuvelton-area man is being hailed as a hero after rescuing his young son from the family's burning home last week:

We should all be that lucky to have such bravery in a time of need where an individual puts another life before his own!
