Buses

In the typical North Country non-leadership model, the CCPT’s answer to losing $33,000 after getting millions in grants to operate the bus system is to cut service to people who need the bus. Face it, Clinton County, nobody cares. 

 

CO2

Were the high C02 concentrations in Earth’s atmosphere 60,000 years ago due to factories and automobiles too?

 

War

I wonder how many people could of been saved from hunger, globally, if we would of bought food instead of going to war. 

 

Farms

Thank God to our hard-working farmers, but please clean-up your beautiful farmland and dispose properly the plastic hay wrap. We see it piled on stonewalls and scattered everywhere. Why not build a hay barn? The wrap is expensive. A barn would pay for itself in a few years.

 

Private

Could parents of Redford teenagers please read the laws of the power lines. See This is private property that NYSEG has a right-of-way to. If it is posted, then you are trespassing. Thank you.

 

Football

I’m hoping that some of the young men at PHS will consider joining the football team in the fall. What a great way to experience teamwork, commitment and dedication for a youngster. If you’re on the fence, give it a try. Be part of something special.

 

Leashes

That time of year again when some pet owners let their dogs run around off their leashes. Folks, there is a leash law in the City of Plattsburgh. Obey it. Dogs need to be leashed when you take them for walks or even when they are outdoors, unsupervised.

 

Interest

It’s obscene for the federal government to charge 7 percent interest for student loans. Especially when the prime rate is about 2 percent and a 30-year mortgage is 4.4 percent. Sen. Elizabeth Warren should run for president.
