Panel Discussion: Iraq?where to from here?

As the the fourth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq approaches, a community forum was held at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Canton to explore a question on the minds of most Americans, regardless of political stripe: "Where to from here?" Panelists included Karl Schonberg and Assis Malaquias, both on the faculty of St. Lawrence University, Dan Bradburd of Clarkson University, and Capt. Jim Wilkes (ret.) of Angel Tracks, a support organization for returning soldiers and their families. The discussion was moderated by NCPR's news director Martha Foley, and was followed by audience Q & A.  Go to full article

Farb unveils iconic photographs of the Summer of Love

Photographer Nathan Farb is most famous in the Adirondacks for his large-scale wilderness scenes. But as a young man, Farb spent three years documenting life on New York City's Lower East Side. In 1967, when the Summer of Love swept over Tomkins Square Park, Farb captured the revolution on film. There are photographs of New York icons like Andy Warhol and Diane Arbus. But there are also powerful, intimate images of everyday people whose lives were being transformed. For the first time, Farb's Summer of Love photographs can be seen in his new exhibition, called "A Photographer's Journal." The show is being mounted at the Richard F. Brush Art Gallery at St. Lawrence University. To talk about the project, Nathan Farb met recently with Brian Mann in Tomkins Square Park. Brian sent this audio postcard.  Go to full article

A panel of mental health professionals would review each case. The details include treatment and annual reviews, as well as security and tougher parole standards. Up to 80 of these sex offenders will spend their confinement in a newly remodeled facility in Ogdensburg. The building offered public tours last weekend. Jonathan Brown reports that, despite the open house, questions remain.  Go to full article
