It is about time we allow all Americans to serve without fear of discharge because of their sexual orientation.

As a high school senior who just joined the Air would be very uncomfortable to serve knowing that there could be another man looking at me in ways that can and will impair my military performance.

Matthew House

President Obama needs to focus more on bigger issues in the world and less on gays in the military.

Inspectors with the New York State Labor Department paid a visit to the St. Lawrence County Highway Department. That, after workers spoke out about the health and safety concerns they say have fallen on deaf ears.

Here's a sampling of your responses:


It is in the best interest all employers to see that all their employees are properly trained in safe job procedure. Should we not expect more from those in charge?

Bryan Brooks

This is just payback by the workers because they were told to stop spending so much time on their personal cell phones.

Sue Smeby

It is interesting to hear how quickly the legislators want to dismiss the complaints.

Donald Warner

The reconstruction of Breen Avenue has been pushed back for years, and this year, lawmakers say there might not be enough money for it again.

This is what some of you had to say:


In these times of money shortfalls, I don't think $2 million for one street is a wise choice.

James Lucas

It is the city of Watertown's responsibility to fix the road, period!

James Mack

The city could start paying for damage to folks' vehicles that the road causes.
