About David Hartman

When he was a teenager, the gift of a Brian Setzer album from his godmother led him to sing jive and jazz standards. David was joined by Kyle Tupper on drums, Alex Jenseth on bass and Tim Savage on an old upright piano.  Go to full article

Fluctuating temperatures raise concerns over farming

That's according to this year's confidence survey conducted by the Thousand Islands International Tourism Council. Director Gary DeYoung says the annual survey, now in its 7th year, is an attempt to gather information from the small--and often independent--businesses that cater to tourists. He tells Jonathan Brown that respondents are looking to Pennsylvania as a possible new market for the Thousand Islands. Many in the industry are still hurting, though, from last summer's wet weather, tightened border security and high gas prices.  Go to full article
