Your Turn: Your Feedback On Carr, Valehaven & Howitzers
Former Jefferson County prosecutor Aaron Carr, who resigned this week after a drunk driving arrest, apologized to the community. He admits he's an alcoholic and says he's getting help:
I was the first to think this would get swept under the rug. I am happy to see he is facing up to it and with class! Best wishes!
As a professional who has been in your shoes with my opiate addiction, get help and get on with your life. It is possible to live sober. Good luck.
He 'manned-up' and I respect him for that.
I hope Mr. Carr can overcome this and regain everything he had. He is a good attorney and a good person.

The problem with Valehaven and others yet to come started in Washington.
Some Fort Drum soldiers broke out the big guns for training. The troops were in the field last week working with howitzers:
I've been close enough to feel the shock wave from them. All I can say is...WOW!
I love it. It sounds like freedom and I feel safe knowing they are training to keep us protected.
