Your Turn: Fired Principal, West Carthage Fire & Snow-Buried Home.Posted: Updated:
The Beaver River school board decided to fire high school principal Joshua Stamp. Stamp is under investigation by the Lewis County Sheriff's Department, which says the investigation involves a foster child who was in the care of the Stamp family last summer.
Paul Montpetit: ”Isn't this a bit rash? What if the investigation turns up nothing?"
Nicole Roes Greene: "Guess it is guilty before proven innocent, what a shame how far this school has come away from how it used to be."
Elise Lehman Herzig: "Unless you have been or currently are a BOE member, you have no clue what happened and they can't tell you. I support the BOE, it must have been a difficult decision."
Firefighters in West Carthage battled both a fire and bitter cold last week to put out a fire in a machine at Carthage Specialty Paperboard.
Katie Camidge: "Great work firefighters. It's so cold couldn't imagine fighting a fire!"
A home in southern Jefferson County was buried by snow last week. Volunteer firefighters and a front-end loader had to rescue the woman inside.
April Beckstead Ashley: "We do get a lot of snow in NY."
Angela McPherson: "Wow."
