Appalachia North

        The Star Lake area is losing it's one grocery store, as Padgett's IGA closes in a few weeks.  That leaves the hamlet with a convenience store. 
         The southern portion of St. Lawrence County is scenic but depressed with vitually no jobs other than the usual government jobs.
          At this point, residents would probably prefer a grocery store to a rail line to Newton Falls.

It says he still butchers? What do they do...bring standing cattle in the back door?
This is just the one domino falling. Soon you will see the same thing in the rest of the county and in Jefferson county too.

Today's police blotter notes two arrests. The first, where a woman was charged with disorderly conduct for "yelling at another woman and disturbing neighbors". The other saw a woman charged for "aggressively walking" towards another woman and screaming at her.

If we keep making arrests like this we will clean Watertown up in no time.

If anything deserves state subsidy, it's this store. Look how far the people who live there will have to go to shop for groceries now. Want to do something good for business Andy, keep Padgett's alive.
