Your Turn: Your Feedback On Post Office, Cemetery Issues and License Plates


By Kris Rusho

The U.S. Postal Service says 50 Watertown post office employees will lose their local jobs as mail processing operations shift to Syracuse.

Here are some of your emails:


The post office is not looking at the whole picture. They are looking at the immediate benefits and not the long term goals!
Craig Luther
North Country, your mail will be delayed even longer so that USPS management can keep their FAT SALARIES!

It is sad and normal for the Postal Service to treat employees this way.

Most of our mail this week is about the removal of items from the graves of Brookside Cemetery in the town of Watertown.

Here's a sampling:


I would like to know why the cemetery did not inform people they were removing things or give the families the opportunity to remove them.
Rhonda Glover
Shame on the cemetery association for doing this.
Dorry Mcintosh
I was very upset to find my parents' Virgin Mary missing. It was close to the stone and not in anyone's way. Where is the respect for the families and the deceased?
Ruth Clough
We should all get together and protest this outrageous act. We have paid good money for our loved one's resting place. We consider this act as bad as an act of vandalism.
Gary Biosi
There is talk about a petition or class action suit against Brookside. This is the only way we have to show our love to the ones we lost.
Robert Booth
Good for the cemetery association.  They must look out for the good of all people that have loved ones in the cemetery.
Ben Trafficana
People don't understand the difficulty of trying to maintain a cemetery when all of these items are placed around the stone. I maintain a few cemeteries, and when something gets broken, people complain and it costs me money to replace the item.
Brian Reape


Start saving now - the state is making new license plates and will require you to get them at a cost of up to $45.

Here's a sampling of your messages:

Just another tax even though they do not come right out and call it that.
Jeff Hampson
No wonder everyone wants to move out of this state. Enough is enough.
