Boehlert announcement Friday

Will Congressman Sherwood Boehlert retire? That's been a popular question in political circles for years, but it looks like we'll finally have an answer tomorrow. Boehlert's made a decision and shared it with President Bush, but won't announce it formally until tomorrow at 3:00pm in Utica.

Four Democrats and a Republican are already running for Boehlert's seat, and the article also mentions the prospects for State Senator Jim Seward to run, though apparently he doesn't live in Boehlert's district.

There's also an article on Irish heritage in Groton that mentions St.Patrick's Church in McLean, which "was disbanded in the 1950s."
