Great day for a cable carry

North Country residents and some Boy Scouts participate in the Great Cable Carry Saturday a.m. They are reenacting the carrying of a huge rope from Oswego to Sackets Harbors 200 years ago. The rope couldn't be transported in Lake Ontario because the British still controlled the lake and the Americans could have lost the rope and other supplies if moving it by ship. So more than 100 men spent three days transporting the rope to Sackets Harbor, where it was used in building ships for the Americans.

Editor’s note: This is the ninth installment of stories about Fulton Families. The monthly series tells the stories of families that have either lived in Fulton for ages or perhaps only a short while — but the common bond will be they love the city and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.

“Can’t take the farm out of a country boy.”

That’s what Doug Hudson says about staying close to his roots.

Doug, who owns Hudsons’ Dairy, left Fulton only long enough to go to college. He and his three brothers, Dan, Eric and David, all returned to the city — or, more accurately, just outside it — to be close to their parents and help out on the farm in Granby.

“We’re lucky all the boys are around us,” Beverly says.

Through the Hudsons’ dairy business, community connections and deep roots, it seems that Fulton is lucky to have them around.
