Heard Up North: A storm-tossed ferry ride

Lake Champlain figures prominently in many North Country stories. It's become a kind of character who allows - or sometimes prevents - narrow escapes. One of the most well known instances involves the pivotal moment during the American Revolution when Benedict Arnold barely got away from the British Navy. In modern times, it's not an invading force but weather that can make for a treacherous crossing of the Lake.

Controversial ABC documentary filmed in Vermontville sparks lawsuit

In her suit, Kyle Nelson claims that the network should have alerted authorities to abuse that they captured on film in her Vermontville home five years ago. The physical abuse was recorded while ABC was working on a documentary for the program "Primetime." The show's producers never contacted the police or social welfare agencies.
