Your Turn: Your Feedback On Hoch Arrest & Grasshopper In Spinach


State police arrested former Lewis County Legislator Joyce Hoch for allegedly serving alcohol to minors at a party in November. A secretary at Lowville Academy, she is on paid administrative leave following an internal investigation at the school.

This is what some of you had to say:

I have known Joyce almost all my life. She is a very caring person and I would trust her with my life. I would like to know who is setting her up.

Yvonne Widrick

We all hope that this will alert other adults that are having parties and buying alcohol for minors.

Lori Hanno

It is about time that a situation like this is brought to the forefront.


Joyce was a very important part of the school to most of us kids. We all LOVE her and that will never change for me and most of the others. Did she make those kids drink the alcohol?

Cassie Bush

A north country woman says she found a grasshopper in her food after heating up a can of Del Monte spinach. She contacted a lawyer, but won't be able to take legal recourse.

Here are some of your emails:


Good luck getting anything other than coupons. I found a needle in my bowl of Cheerios, contacted the police and General Mills. All I got were 6 coupons for free cereal.

Dawn Biosi

It amazes me that everyone thinks they have the right to tie up our courts with lawsuits. This person was not harmed in any way.

Patty Forbes

A couple of years ago the same thing happened to me except it was a 2 inch beetle and a can of Popeye spinach.

Julie Davenport

I wouldn't worry about a harmless bug. Some countries dip them in chocolate.
