Heard up North: "Inundation Day"

So, what's it like to watch your town go underwater? Gregory Warner spoke with Jane Craig. She's director of the "Lost Villages Museum" in Ault (ALT) Park, Ontario. It's a museum for the 10 Canadian villages lost on July 1st, 1958, "Inundation Day," when the hydrodams went up and the Seaway expanded. It's kind of a theme park where you can find the actual buildings rescued from the villages. There's a working general store, log cabin, barber shop, schoolhouse, resource centre, blacksmith shop, corn crib, railway station and church. If anyone was mourning the loss it would seem to be Jane Craig. But she says it was kind of exciting.  Go to full article

Poetry: Friends are like vegetables

It's harvest season. Earlier this year we began a string of conversations and stories about gardening and art. We visited a West Potsdam gardener and artist on her farm - one of many places in the North Country where everything comes together--nature and art. And in November, we'll meet a Massena man who turns sweet potatoes into art. Max Coots is Minister Emeritus at the Unitarian-Universalist Church in Canton. He's also a sculptor, gardener and poet. He's the author of a poem about the joy of friends and the garden harvest.  Go to full article
