Your Turn: Your Feedback On School, Mural & Potholes


St. Marguerite D'Youville Academy in Ogdensburg will be closing at the end of the school year.  The decision was based on declining enrollment and rising costs at the Catholic school:


My son attended SMDA from kindergarten until he went to OFA and it was the best scholastic experience he could have had. What a great loss!

Gina Hurteau

No surprise to me. They are too far behind public schools, academically anyway.

The new owner of the rear portion of Watertown's Empsall Plaza says the mural on the side is an eyesore and says its days are numbered. Our story touched off a lively debate:


I have to agree with the new owner.  I find it embarrassing that something hasn't been done about that eyesore way before this time.

James Kendricks

Leave our flag and soldiers alone.

Sandra Jetke

A new mural promoting our appreciation of Fort Drum would be great. The orange needs to go.

Karen Spooner

I'd love to enter a competition to get a chance to paint a new mural!

Cindy Tyler

When the new owner took over the building, it became her property. It is none of our business what she does.

It's pothole season in the north country. And, try as you might to avoid them, you just can't. People from all over the region let us know where the worst ones are:


Try all of Alex Bay.

Georgia Weathers

The village of Massena is one big pothole.

Josh Denney

Every street in Gouverneur. Even a giraffe would get lost in them.

Shannon Way

Probably be a lot easier to narrow it down by asking - are there any streets that you have noticed don't have any potholes?
