  • The Ideal Diet to Combat Climate Change

    Oct 25, 2018

    You may be aware that a plant-based diet can make you healthier by lowering your risk for obesity, heart disease and Type 2 diabetes. Now, a study suggests there’s another good reason to regularly eat meatless meals. By filling your plate with plant foods instead of animal foods, you can help save the planet. Traditionally and culturally, the Haudenosaunee diet was a predominantly plant based diet, interspersed with seasonally available protein; whether it be fish, venison, or moose meat. A study, published in the journal ‘Nature’, found that...

  • Voter Suppression is Rampant Across the U.S.

    Oct 25, 2018

    Voter suppression is alive in well in the United States, when it comes to voters rights and the right to vote, the United States has a long history of racially biased suppression. On the very soil which is ours, Native Americans were not allowed to vote until 1924. The relationship between Native American Tribes and Nations were formal agreements between two sovereign nations, based on this, the government saw no need for Native Americans to vote, and the feeling was reciprocal. Native American viewed voting in a foreign government as taboo -...

  • Head of the Class

    Oct 25, 2018

    By Paul Hetzler, Horticulture and Natural Resources Educator, Cornell Cooperative Extension of St. Lawrence County When the topic of animal intelligence comes up, we might argue whether a crow or a parrot is the more clever, or if dolphins are smarter than manatees. Seldom do we ascribe smarts to life-forms such as insects, plants or fungi. And it is rare indeed that we question our intellectual primacy among animals. It is true that no other species can point to monumental achievements such as the Colosseum, acid rain, nerve gas and atomic bom...

  • Wink, the Lazy Bird, and the Red Fox

    Oct 25, 2018

    Continued from last week Wink resolved to watch for Fox and follow him into the woods to find what treasure he had concealed in his den. Wink crept cautiously into the woods and along a ridge of rock, where he found the lair of old Red Fox. He looked carefully and saw that Red Fox was none other than the stranger who had borrowed his canoe. Wink crouched down in the leaves and listened. Someone was singing: Wink digs here and Wink digs there, Wink digs almost everywhere. And where Wink digs, the worms all come, Where worms all come, the birds a...

  • The Legend of Jack-O'-Lantern

    Oct 25, 2018

    By Richard Gast, Cornell Cooperative Extension Franklin County Perhaps the single-most-recognizable symbol of the Halloween season is the traditional hollowed out pumpkin carved into a smiling or ominous, illuminated-in-the-dark face. But, “Why,” I’ve often been asked, “is it called a jack-o-lantern?” While much of what’s known is ambiguous at best, the first widely-accepted mention I can find dates back to the five classes of fairies in Cornish lore: the Small People, the Brownies, the Spriggans, the Buccas, Bockles, or Knockers, and the Pis...
