Former county legislator claims Massena Memorial Hospital is discouraging use of new competitor next door
Thursday, November 18, 2010 - 2:42 pm

MASSENA – A former county legislator and Massena resident is calling Massena Memorial Hospital officials "bullies" for their alleged efforts to deter patients from using a new urgent care clinic that opened next door to the hospital.

Charlie Romigh, former legislator and current chair of Massena’s Republican Committee, claims in a letter to the editor also signed by his wife Karen, that the hospital is engaging in “blatantly hateful behavior” toward Mountain Medical Urgent Care, a Lake Placid/Saranac Lake-based clinic that opened on Hospital Drive last week.

Massena Memorial Hospital is 'bullying' new urgicare
Thursday, November 18, 2010 - 1:37 pm

To the Editor:

Since when is a hospital in the business to bully?

I always thought a hospital was in the business to heal.

In Massena, our beloved hospital has decided to bully a brand new urgicare clinic that has opened its doors for a brand new badly needed service in this area: urgent care.

This hospital has decided to place signs forbidding patients of Mountain Medical Urgicare from parking in their municipally owned parking lot.

Additionally, the hospital has informed their staff not to refer any patients to MMUrgicare under any circumstances.

Potsdam Farmers’ Market finishes a good year
Thursday, November 18, 2010 - 12:24 pm

To the Editor:

The Potsdam Farmers’ Market underwent a lot of changes and challenges this year. Despite a bumpy start in the early season due to our relocation, the market ultimately grew stronger as the season progressed. For this, we have a multitude of people to thank in their various roles in helping the market to succeed and flourish.

During the opening ceremony, Jim Dear’s alpacas drew much interest and enjoyment. Evans & White loaned their Igloo beverage jug to us for our fruit punch.
