Norwood Library mug contest a success
To the Editor:
The Norwood Library Board of Trustees wish to thank all those that participated in the Fill-A-Mug Contest recently held at the Norwood Library.
Over 30 mugs were received and the creativity shown in filling each of those mugs was outstanding.
We received everything from a first aid mug to pet mugs to a handy man mug. The mugs are now on sale at the Old Market Gift Shop in Norwood.
We appreciate the support the library is receiving from the community as shown by the success of this contest.

Enough is enough
Well here we go again. A third trial for Wayne Oxley. One verdict overturned, a mistrial, and now another try. When this is done, the taxpayers of St. Lawrence County will easily have over $500,000 invested in this whole thing. I feel for the Trickey family but what happens if there’s another mistrial. Do we keep going until the D,A. gets the verdict she wants? I for one say enough is enough.
