Waiting on order to ‘move or remove building’
Wednesday, July 28, 2010 - 12:03 pm

I honestly love how after three years away, I can pick up a North Country This Week or visit NorthCountryNow.com and read the Letters and Sound Offs and feel like I never left: the noise of motorcycles; whether Mr. Robar should get rid of his protest-art (though the decor changes: cornfield, more/less toilets, new paint, etc); whether the signs for “55 on Rt.
