Your Turn: Your Feedback On Saturday Mail, Governor, Rough Roads & More


Most of the emails we received over the past week are about the Gouverneur woman accused of leaving her seven month old son home alone for hours each day while she went to work in another county.

Because of the nature of many of your messages, we're only able to share a couple of them:


I hope that little boy is safe, wherever he is.

Dana Bray

This is sad and my heart goes out to the baby boy.

There are more calls for embattled Governor David Paterson to resign.

Here's a sampling of your messages:


Whether or not he violated any laws, the appearance of misconduct alone ruins his credibility. It's time for him to resign.

Bruce Webber

This is getting to be a bit much.  I sincerely feel he should step down and stay out of politics altogether.

Watertown City Council decided to move ahead with the $2.3 million Breen Avenue reconstruction project. The decision delights the people who live there, but others in the city are asking, "What about my street?"

This is what some of you had to say:


Have you ever driven down Cedar St.?  It's a mess!

Chana Fay

North Hamilton Street is also horrible.  When will it be repaved?

Mindi McMains

How about S. Pleasant St.?  You get seasick driving down the street.

Roberto Elizondo

For the amount of money we pay in taxes a year CITY STREETS SHOULD BE PAVED IN GOLD!
