Santa to lead the way for Canton 'Holiday of Lights' on Friday
CANTON – Thousands of tiny twinkling white lights will mark the way as Santa Claus rolls down Main Street escorted by a Canton Police cruiser during Canton’s annual Holiday of Lights. This year’s event will be celebrated Friday, Nov. 26, on the village green.
Brad Mintener, event organizer, says the white lights have special meaning in Canton.
“We started the tradition of decorating downtown with little white lights, and now about 20 communities in the North Country do it,” he said.

Dean touched many veterans’ lives
To the Editor:
This morning I woke shocked to see the passing of Warren Dean of Knapp station. For those of you that knew Warren or had the opportunity to listen to him we all share in this loss.
My first encounter with Warren was in 1984 after being injured in the military. Warren was working for St. Lawrence County Veteran’s services.
I really did not know what to expect. I was a 19-year-old reckless, hell raiser.
Kudos to shot clinic
In response to “Flu Shot Hassle,” (Nov. 17-23) I also attended the flu shot clinic in Canton. Those ladies were extremely busy and the amount of people that took advantage of the clinic caught them off guard. So how would you have liked to wait double the amount of time by combining steps one and two and then find out because of your allergies and/or health problems that you were not a good candidate for the flu shot and then sent home without a shot?
