Your Turn: Your Feedback On Bus Rules, Cider Prices & More


There are new rules for students in the Watertown City School District when it comes to riding the bus. That's after a YouTube video featuring a student bullying a driver went viral last June:


Children should not be allowed to act like this on the bus.  Their parents should teach them some manners and they should know better.

Kids need to be able to fight back without fear of punishment. This new soft world made of puppies and rainbows and hugs is getting annoying.

Watertown took over seven houses for back taxes and the city code inspector says most of them could be rehabilitated. Rather than putting the properties up for auction, the city could use a Neighbors of Watertown program to fix them and sell them to first-time home buyers:

Let the city...fix them up and sell them. If they go in auction, you'll only get slum lords looking to purchase them and rent them out and do nothing to them.

Watertown has enough going on that they already can't keep up with. They should just sell the houses.

The city should try to get the houses repaired and back on the tax rolls. Neighbors of Watertown would be a good solution.

A shortage of apples is driving prices up. As a result, the Burrville Cider Mill is charging 30 percent more for apple cider compared to last year:


I will buy it all season long no matter what they charge for it.  It's a tradition I won't do without.

Will not pay that amount.

It's just like gas - you've got to have it!
