Speakout: Jan. 4, 2013


It’s nice to see Bombardier, Inc. win a recent $1.85 billion contract to sell 40 planes to Delta with options to buy 30 more later. Although Bombardier in Plattsburgh is a different branch, hopefully that will help solidify the financial health of the company overall.


Schools are so different now. Every two to three years they change their programming to fit the philosophy of the current principal. How about just letting teachers teach how they want and do what works for them and their students?


It kills me when people keep trying for their “boy” or “girl.” Just be blessed you are able to have a healthy child because some people do not get that.


I have a big problem with these officials who give out permits for these protesters to close down streets and freeways; all they do is cause problems and fights.


I have never in my 71 years seen people against the police like it is now-a-days. But look who are the ones complaining all the time; who do they call when they need help?


A huge debt of gratitude to whoever found my husband’s wallet in the Wal-Mart parking lot on Nov. 27 and brought it to Plattsburgh Police Department. Thank God for the good people in the North Country!


Coat Drive For North Country has helped my family keep warm this winter free of charge. You can visit them on Facebook. Such a wonderful thing to do for residents of the North Country.


A natural gas 46 miles long is being built from St Lawrence County through Franklin County to Chateaugay. No gas line for the village of Keeseville. It would be less than 2 miles to the nearest existing gas line.


Wood smoke/cigarette smoke: same offensive smell. All you have to do is wash your coats once in a while. Your kids deserve the same treatment; they are the innocent victims.
