Book review: "Without Grace" by Carol Hoenig

In Carol Hoenig's novel Without Grace, rural poverty forces many of the characters to make difficult choices. Set in Churubusco in the 1970s, the book chronicles the coming of age of Vicky Finley, a farm girl who fights against tragedy to become a strong North Country woman. While some of the book's characters leave the North Country, staying put is a struggle for many. Betsy Kepes has our review.  Go to full article

Winter comes back to the North Country

Winter finally returned to the North Country today with snow, freezing rain and wintry conditions that have mostly been a no-show this season.

Tree limbs and power lines are snapping. In Saratoga County, an estimated 40,000 people are without power. It's not expected to be restored until tomorrow.

The Red Cross is opening a shelter and warming center for area residents at the Maple Avenue Middle School between Six and Seven tonight.

Western and central New York metro areas are also reporting up to a half-inch of ice on roads, trees and power lines. As a result, almost 40,000 homes in the Syracuse area are without power - more than 50,000 homes around Rochester.

Roads are tied up because of snow, accidents and even some fatalities across the region.

A harried officer at the State Police headquarters in Ray Brook said, "There are more accidents than I have time to count." He warns that all roads are now snow-covered and slippery.

To get a better sense of the weather system that has moved in to the area, Jonathan Brown called the National Weather Service in Burlington, Vermont. Meteorologist Brook Taber, says things are just getting back to normal.  Go to full article

In Cranberry Lake, a feud over trail rights

Snowmobile riders have complained for years that their trail network in the North Country is fragile. It depends on a patchwork of agreements with local and state governments, as well as dozens of private landowners.

In the northern Adirondacks, a snowmobile club is feuding with hunters over a trail that crosses land leased by the Cranberry Lake Fish & Game Club.

Sledders with the Cranberry Lake Mountaineers have used the route for years to reach the lake. But it was closed this season following a dispute over money.

We talked about the simmering disagreement with a member of each club, Bill White and Tom Morley - who reads from a prepared statement.  Go to full article
