A brother remembers CPL Henry Bogrette

A plane carrying the body of a marine from St. Lawrence County was scheduled to land in Watertown at four this afternoon. Corporal Henry Bogrette of Richville was killed last Thursday while conducting combat operations in Anbar province in Iraq. He was 21. A family member contacted us to remember his life. They put us in touch with Henry's brother, Jeff Bogrette. Jeff was busy running errands and picking up family. He spoke with David Sommerstein on his cell phone. He's today's Heard Up North.

Calling hours are Sunday from 6 to 8pm and Monday from 10am to 1pm at French's funeral home in Gouverneur. Henry Bogrette will be buried in his hometown of Richville at Maple Grove Cemetery.  Go to full article

Quebec voters turn politics turvy

Politics in Quebec has long been dominated by the question of sovereignty - whether the French-speaking province should split off from Canada to become its own country. The leading parties reflected the divide: Federalism under the Liberals, or nationhood with the Parti Québécois. This week, voters delivered a stinging rebuke to both parties - the Liberals barely held on to power and must now lead Quebec's first minority government since 1878. The Parti Quebecois fell to third in the voting. The big winner was the L'Action Democratique party. The ADQ went from 5 seats to 41 and now replaces the PQ as the official opposition. Martha Foley talked about the implications with Dr. Robert Thacker, who teaches Canadian Studies at St. lawrence University.  Go to full article
