Your Turn: Your Feedback On Rifle, Teacher, Alcoa & Owens


Alcoa announced it's shutting down the Massena East plant.  More than 300 workers are affected according to the company's advance layoff notice:

Terrible, terrible news.

Jane Fischer

I watch commercials from New York state claiming it is the place for business. Perhaps no one told Alcoa.

Larry Swift

So what happens now, when they committed to the "Big Expansion?" No wonder Bill Owens is leaving.

Paul Willer

That's right, Bill Owens is leaving Congress.  The Democrat announced he's not seeking re-election after being in office since 2009:

Very disappointed! He was a good representative for the north country!

Storm Cilley

Good riddance.  Let's not forget it was his vote that stuck us all with Obamacare!

Greg Locke

The biggest story of the week came from Indian River High School. Officials say a 15 year old student brought a loaded rifle to school and planned to use it:

So glad no one was hurt or killed.

Shari Gerber

What drove the kid to bring the weapon to school?  This is the question that needs to be asked and answered.

J Erik Hondo Hondusky

Boy, Gov. Coumo's SAFE Act is really working isn't it?

Andrew Tyner

There should be a trained, armed person with an office at each school.

Ronnie Durand

It's time for metal detectors in our schools.

James Wilson

The teacher who grabbed the rifle away from the student is Bob Kuba.  He says he's no hero, but many of you disagree:

My grandson was in the class where this happened so to me he is a hero. Thank you Mr. Kuba !

Kathy Reichel

Your reaction was quick, decisive and very heroic. Because of that, no one has to say "what if."

Debbie Williams

It was a brave and very dangerous thing he did.
