Morgan would work for community on Canton Town Council
To the Editor:
I am writing to support Michael Morgan for Canton Town Council. I have known Mike for over 20 years and during that time he has served the community as a Fireman, Fire Chief, Planning Board Chairman, and a businessman.
Mike listens well and as a result, is a good problem solver.
As an active member in the Canton Community there has never been an ulterior motive for his participation.
Mike's approach has always been, what could he do to make his community better.
Vote Scott Sutherland for county legislator
To the Editor:
We encourage you to vote for Scott Sutherland as your county legislator. Scott will provide the leadership to our district that has been missing since we lost Lloyd Moore.
Scott is a lifelong resident of St. Lawrence County. He served more than 33 years as a police officer within the Sheriff’s department, as well as more than 10 years on a local school board. His experience and common sense are what we need to represent our towns within the county government. He is eager to use his knowledge to benefit the county.
Candidate mailers a waste of money
What would the state's budget look like if we took all the money that is poured into the campaign and apply it towards the deficit? Even if we just took all the negative ads they put out. I took 9 mailers out of my mailbox in two days. A bit excessive? If the candidates can spend money like this, what are they going to do when elected?

Be more understanding
Re: “Parenting Classes Needed” (Oct. 20-26), When people are quick to call Child Protective Services for child abuse and try to tell others how to parent, it is understandable why parents do not discipline in public. Suggesting people take parenting classes because their child misbehaves and they don’t spank them is a stretch. Those parents whose initial reaction is to smack their child need to take parenting classes and anger management. There are better solutions to deal with problem behaviors; leaving the store is also not one of them in my opinion.
I travel a road to work in Canton almost everyday. I have to stop in front of house almost every time to wait for their ducks, chickens, goats and even peacocks to get out of my way. The fence that is supposed to hold these animals is completely destroyed. Why is it that this residence is able to get away with letting their herds of animals run loose? I know if it were my dog, the dog warden would be on my tail in a snap of a finger. Is there anyone out there that can clean this mess up? One of these poor little creatures is going to be seriously hurt!
