This Week's Poll
Poll Result

Estimates of the number of American Civil War casualties are growing – from the conventional 618,222 to something closer to 750,000 – as demographic historians deploy increasingly sophisticated computer models. Similarly, estimates of the number of North Vietnam/Viet Cong soldier and civilian deaths in the Vietnam war vary considerably, but are generally placed at about 1 million or more. The American death toll is put at 58,315. Which side won the Vietnam War?

1. – North Vietnam won. It drove Americans from the field of battle.

2. – Don’t know.

3. – It was a stalemate, something along the lines of the War of 1812, which ended largely because a distracted super power got tired.

4. – America won. It left on its own terms, not those of Vietnam.

After 2 ransoms, Woodlawn beefs up
Twenty-nine bitcoins, or $25,700. That's what it cost Woodlawn Hospital to get its hacked computers unlocked in the past year.

But the word "terrorists" is a better way to explain the people who were able to lock the hospital out of a good portion of its servers and computers, said Hospital IT Director Travis Albright.

Geier: Stretch wheel tax
Fulton County Highway Superintendent John Geier has plans to stretch funds for road repair and maintenance projects much further this year.

He told the Fulton County Council Tuesday more than $765,000 has been collected through the county's wheel tax and excise surtax, which went into effect on Jan. 1, 2016. In a partnership with the city of Rochester later that year, 13th Street from Park Road to the bypass at U.S. 31 was repaved. It was the first time the county dipped into the wheel tax fund to complete a road repair project.
