NCPR intern finds memory and grief just outside Lac-Megantic disaster zone

Our Adirondack bureau chief Brian Mann has been reporting in Lac-Mégantic Quebec over the last week on the one-year anniversary of that town's terrible train derailment that left 47 people dead.

Joining him on this trip has been Monique Cornett, one of NCPR's interns, part of our effort to bring new, young journalists into public broadcasting.

Cornett, from Potsdam, is a 21-year-old student at Oswego and is spending the summer working with NCPR.

While on assignment with Brian, she found a new shop on the town's main street that's helping the community remember and celebrate what was lost in last July's disaster.  Go to full article
