  • North Country lawmakers are livid that Joyce Mitchell, who pled guilty to her role in the escape of two inmates from Clinton Correctional last month, will continue to receive her state pension.

  • Essex County Democratic Election Commissioner Mark Whitney issued a belated ruling on specific challenges to petitions on Thursday, June 30, a procedure required by state law to weed out violations. But he did it behind closed doors with the head of the Essex County Democratic Committee, a process that stunned county officials, including Republican Commissioner Allison McGahay.

  • Point Positive, a group of local investors, is seeking new projects to fund. Since their launch 18 months ago, the Saranac Lake-based outfit has funded three startup companies, including Wholeshare, an online purchasing service that allows customers to form co-ops and purchase items in bulk. Nature’s Real Food Market in Tupper Lake, pictured above, is part of Wholeshare’s Tupper Lake Real Food Cooperative. Visit pointpositiveadk.com for more info.

  • Joyce Mitchell is escorted out of Plattsburgh County Court on Tuesday, July 28 after pleading guilty to a pair of charges related to last month's escape from Clinton Correctional.

  • The race to unseat Essex County Clerk Joseph Provoncha (R) has entered the courtroom. Plaintiffs Win Belanger and Provoncha filed suit against challenger Luke Hudak (D) and the Essex County Board of Elections on Thursday, July 23 on the grounds that 92 of the signatures Hudak collected to gain ballot access are invalid.

  • Lake Placid resident Marc Galvin addresses officials at the Common Ground Alliance forum in Long Lake on Wednesday, July 15. Young people want to stay in the Adirondack Park, said a panel of young professionals. It’s just a matter of providing the opportunities to keep communities vibrant.
