Looking forward to summer slow-down in Potsdam, Canton
I just read the article, just posted about how business drops off for businesses in Canton and Potsdam when students go home for the summer.
Is this news? It's always been the pattern, it drops in summer and picks up in the fall.

I find it astonishing how many news stories here and from other local sources do nothing more than state the obvious and usually with horrible puns or cliche.
