WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - The state mandates that people wear masks in indoor public places. It applies to New Yorkers age 2 and older:

I’m definitely not doing this.

Joseph Richter

You’re being told to wear a mask so our hospital systems don’t collapse...Grow up.

Cait Elizabeth

Why did I get the vaccine then?

Christi Lynn Caldwell

The more people balk at this the longer it is going to take to get it under control. If we don’t, you can expect to have another lock down.

Tina Morrison

Farm workers earn regular pay until they reach 60 hours. That’s when overtime pay kicks in. But some state leaders want to lower that threshold to 40 hours a week. Farmers say it’s a bad idea:

If you work over 40 hours, you should be getting overtime regardless of job title.

Ashley A Hazelton

Farmers simply can not raise their price to meet expenses. The added labor cost must be absorbed by the farm owner.

Ron Robbins

Through his lawyer, Tony Arquiett says he will continue to serve as a St. Lawrence County legislator even as others call for his resignation. Arquiett faces drunk driving and cocaine possession charges following a crash:

How does someone in his position get to hold his seat after this?

Francine Griffin

They all walk anyway! That’s the new norm; nobody is held accountable.
