Summer 2015: Today’s Gardner

A few tried and true tips to grow healthy tomatoes

Columnist Brian Hallett

Columnist Brian Hallett

Few of us plant vegetable gardens out of need any longer, unless you count the need for a sun-warmed tomato. You can grow tomatoes in a pot on the patio or a half-acre vegetable patch. Either way, the rewards are great. All the clichés about tomatoes warm from the sun from grandmother’s garden can’t take away from the fact that no tomato tastes quite as good as one fresh from the vine, eaten with your feet still standing on the soil covering the roots. Here are some tips for coaxing the best out of your tomato plants. [Read more…]

Summer 2015: History

Region takes flight

Capt. Frank Burnside, far right, was the first to successfully pilot an airplane in Northern New York. His flights occurred at the Jefferson County Fair in September 1913. A crowd of more than 3,000 witnessed  as Capt. Burnside and his Thomas airplane took off from the exhibition field, soared to a cruising altitude of 2,000 feet, and reached an astounding 50 mph, before safely landing on the makeshift airstrip.

Capt. Frank Burnside first to pilot north country skies

By Lenka P. Walldroff

It may surprise some visitors to learn that the north country boasts a number of international airports. Here in Watertown, the “International” in “Watertown International Airport” has raised a few eyebrows, but small as it may be, our humble airport gets the job done, ferrying passengers to and from Northern New York to destinations around the world. Eyebrows and square footage aside, north country airports are but a whisper in the region’s long-standing relationship with aviation. [Read more…]
