Rising Oil Prices Mean High Heating Costs

With energy costs rising substantially for a second year, and oil prices hitting new record highs, home heating bills are expected to soar. Heating oil prices in the North Country are already up 6% this month, to $2.34 a gallon. That's 80 cents higher than last September. Propane and natural gas prices are also skyrocketing.

The price of heating oil is of particular concern in the region, since the North Country uses a disproportionate share statewide of heating oil. In rural districts, far from gas pipelines, some families will bear the winter in old housing stock. At these prices, that spells trouble.  Go to full article

Alpacas: The Next Generation

Back in February, we brought you the story of an alpaca farmer: Angel Dunkelberg, of Angel Knoll Alpacas in Waddington. The alpaca is a Peruvian cousin of the llama. It comes from the Andes Mountains. Alpacas like climates cold and dry--rather like it is here in the North Country--most of the time.

We revisited Angel to find out how her alpacas were taking the heat. Not too badly. Angel sprays water on their bellies to keep them cool. She's dragged fans to every corner of the barn. The heatwave has sped up the birth process, though. Angel now has 10 new alpacas, the youngest two days old. Her biggest problem now is what to name them all.  Go to full article
