Video: Interior Secretary Sally Jewell kayaks on RI's
Blackstone Secretary of the Interior Sally
Jewell made easy work of kayaking a stretch of the
historic Blackstone River Friday as three of Rhode
Island's Democratic congressmen paddled close behind.
But with financing and staffing cuts reported this year
at national parks around the country -- one result of a
federal budget standoff -- the question is whether
designating a Blackstone national historic park in
northern Rhode Island and Massachusetts will prove a
tough row through rough rapids.
