Rafting, camping, dreaming in the Grand Canyon

We'll take a break from the cold and snow and listen as Adirondack teacher and rafter Becky Pelton talks about a recent trip on the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. Pelton is Long Lake Central School's speech pathologist. She and her husband, Nate, also run the North Creek Rafting Company. They are avid rafters and paddlers. She kept a journal and blogged during the trip and will share photos and videos with Long Lake students and the community later this year.

Becky and Nate joined six friends on a 280-mile journey down the Colorado in late November and early December. Todd Moe spoke with Becky about the trip, which she described as a three-week trek at the bottom of the "Big Ditch", with lots of red sand, Great Blue Herons and rough rapids.  Go to full article

Preview: "Dancing at Lughnasa" in North Creek

North Creek's community theater troupe is prepping for its fall production of Dancing at Lughnasa. The play, set in Ireland in the 1930's, opens Friday, October 19th at Tannery Pond Community Center. It's a memory play loosely based on the lives of playwright Brian Friel's mother and aunts who lived on the west coast of Donegal. Set in the summer of 1936, the play depicts the late summer days when love briefly seems possible for three of the Mundy sisters and the family welcomes home the frail elder brother, who has returned from a life as missionary in Africa.

Our Town Theatre Group director Colleen Potter tells Todd Moe that the play won a Tony Award for Best Play. She says it's a show she has been eager to bring to the region.  Go to full article
