In Canton, North Country-made antique fishing lures on display

Just in time for fishing season, Traditional Arts in Upstate New York is celebrating the art of antique hand-made fishing lures. In the 19th and early 20th century, anglers were able to purchase lures manufactured in small shops in communities from Old Forge to Lake Clear to Clayton.

Norwood collector Ray Bartholomew grew up fishing in Jefferson County and has been collecting old-time fishing tackle for more than 30 years. Some of his favorites will be on display at TAUNY in Canton starting this Saturday.

School leaders seek answers on bomb hoaxes

The Newtown shootings and the Boston Marathon bombings have left all of America asking questions about security. But schools have been particularly on edge.

Another bomb hoax caused an early dismissal at Norwood-Norfolk central schools on Tuesday, according to NorthCountryNow.com. It's the third in recent weeks at the school. A fake bomb threat forced the evacuation of Madrid-Waddington schools last week.

In St. Lawrence County, there have been at least half a dozen bomb hoaxes at schools in the last month. They've forced school leaders to walk a tightrope between safety and maintaining a normal school day.  Go to full article

Lake and rivers recede, but flooding still problem

A mostly rain-free weekend has brought much needed relief to the flood-stricken North Country. But for people whose basements are inundated or whose houses are surrounded by water, the danger isn't over. And the recovery is just beginning.

Lake Champlain has receded slightly to 102.9 feet at Rouses Point. Flood stage is 100 feet. In the town of Champlain, crews were bringing sandbags and supplies over the weekend to families isolated by flooding. Highway superintendent Allen Racine told the Plattsburgh Press-Republican "it's like a war zone."

The Raquette River drew down below 10 feet over the weekend. But some homes in Colton, Potsdam, and Norwood are still under water. David Sommerstein spoke with St. Lawrence County Emergency Services director Marty Hassett this morning.  Go to full article
