Folks at the Countryside Adult home on Schroon River Road would like family members and friends and former neighbors to stop by for a visit anytime.

A caller this week requested more political opinion articles like Adirondack Journal Executive Editor John Gereau wrote several weeks ago. Folks up here loved his critique of the Adirondack Park Agency and they'd like to see more articles like this.

Another caller asked a question on the figures quoted on the March 9 special school vote on the three buses to be leased for a five year term at an annual cost of about $48,200. The $48,000 is the total cost for all three buses per year.
