Oct 18, 2005 — Heating prices will hit record highs this year. New York State legislators are wondering what to do about the problem. Hillary Clinton and other Senators are calling on President Bush to do more on the federal level. Meanwhile, St. Lawrence County recently eased the burden slightly--they suspended all home heating fuel taxes for this winter. What more can people on the local level do to help themselves?
Last week a diverse group met in Canton to address that issue. Energy providers, church leaders and community advocates from St Lawrence County had a brainstorm session.
