Canton has a new librarian! Read the Watertown Daily Times profile here.

The Champlain Valley town of Westport is working to become an arts destination — and they’re asking for public input at a hearing.*

Governor Cuomo directed flags to half-staff today to honor victims of Flight 527, the American Airlines flight that crashed in Queens 12 years ago.

He also announced $4 million in grants to local governments to help lower their costs. The biggest share of the grant: $600,000 to the Hamilton County Fuel Consolidation project.

Ever wonder why there’s an actual slash between along the U.S.-Canadian border? 7 Days has the answer.

Coming up tomorrow on the 8 O’Clock Hour:
Another sign of winter: thousands of crows descend on Watertown…and the city isn’t happy.
One of the biggest steps in buying a home can be making the downpayment…especially for first-time buyers. Tomorrow/today: How North Country counties are trying to help.
Also, Brian Mann sends an audio postcard from a late autumn hike to Grassy Pond near Racquette Lake.
And, Andy Flynn talks with at Adirondack Architectural Heritage director Steven Engelhart  about an endangered historic property in the Adirondacks — Aiden Lair.  It’s located in the town of Minerva, and was one of the way stations Teddy Roosevelt used during his night ride to the presidency in 1901.

*Correction: The Westport public hearing is next Tuesday, November 19. We originally wrote that it was this week.

    I’m not sure if this is the point to ask the question, but what will be done about the fuel on-board the drone that crashed into Lake Ontario? It’s all very well to say there were no injures, but that presumably only refers to people. What about the Lake and its inhabitants?
