Your Turn: feedback on non-binary student, automated farm & fire department distinction
WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - A St. Lawrence University student who identifies as non-binary is challenging a decision made by a national sorority to kick them out due to their gender assigned at birth:
Beyond disgusting. I hope they’re ok.
Get your 15 minutes of fame!
Happy to see the national sorority stand up and say no.
A farm in LaFargeville has turned to robots to feed and milk its cows. The owner says production is up and the cows are happier:
The range of changes happening in the industry is really fascinating.
As jobs on farms and many other jobs are taken over by automation, where are the workers supposed to go to earn a paycheck?

You can’t find people to do manual labor; farming is 4 a.m. to sometimes 7 p.m.
The Watertown Fire Department has received a rare distinction for its preparedness. Fewer than 1 percent of fire departments nationwide have achieved it:
WFD has always done a great job. It’s nice to see them recognized for that.
Well deserved. Just need more people in charge of the city to support the police and fire.
