Your Turn: Your Feedback On Bank Robbery, Vandalism & Public Transportation


Community Bank in Hermon was robbed last week. It's the fifth unsolved bank robbery in the north country in the last three years.

Here are some of your messages:


It is a complete shame that our little town has turned to this. It really makes me wonder what else is going to happen.

Banks should have 2 guards in the doorways of all banks to prevent this problem in days to come. They have these set ups in other buildings like DSS and DMV.

It sounds like people are getting desperate. Create some jobs and maybe there won't be so many thieves.

Vandals used spray paint to deface numerous vehicles and buildings, including a church, in the Lewis County village of Lowville.

Here's what a couple of you had to say:


Good luck, law enforcement as you seek to find these criminals.

Florence Goodheart

When they are caught, they need to scrub the brick until their knuckles bleed.  They might think twice before they do it again.

The race to fill the 23rd Congressional District seat is heating up and political parties are already gearing up to spend big money to win.

This email says:


Why don't they save the money and put it to better use, such as helping the ones who really could use it - people who are unemployed, seniors who can't afford medicines, or someone about to lose their home.

Linda Smith


Public transportation is now available for the first time in Lewis County.

Here's what one person had to say:


Great job. With the growth happening in our areas, this is one area that has not seen growth - public transportation.
