Jashayla Markayia Hopson went missing tuesday from her elementary school. The state of Mississippi has issued and Amber alert for her return. As journalist it is important that we bring awareness to the media so I feel obligated to do my part in an abduction so close to home.

Ice Harvesting!

leave a comment »

This is a video about ice harvesting for the winter. They would cut the ice from a frozen pond or lake and ship it to the stock room where it is kept cold for the selling to others. Farmers would really need the ice back then for milk that they got from a cow and they even used it for ice cream. This ice main use was for food and keeping it cold back then.

Ice Harvest Festival: Tully, NY

leave a comment »

We use ice nearly every day and I don’t think I have ever considered the process of ice harvesting. Today we have ice makers. But “back in the day” large blocks of ice were used to keep refrigerators cool to save milk and other things. This video shows and explains the process of ice harvesting. This was in February 2009 during an Ice Harvest Festival in Tully, NY. Gordon Howard is the narrator. The ice has to be scored, which basically makes a grid in the ice so you know where to saw. Large saws are used to cut along the scores or grid. Once the ice squares are removed they are guided, using special tools, onto horse drawn sleighs. Then they are transported to the ice house where they are packed in saw dust, which keeps the large ice blocks from melting. All videography and reporting was done by Peter Chen. And all editing was done by me, Jana Edwards. And with this being my final project, I’m ready to graduate next week!
