In Lake Placid Women Jump For a Shot at Olympics

Hundreds of athletes are getting ready for this Winter's Olympic games in Torino, Italy. But around the world, a small group of women ski jumpers are busy preparing for the next Olympics, which will be held in Vancouver, Canada, in 2010.

Arsonist Hits Adirondack Camps

Last month, an arsonist set fire to another historic hunting cabin owned by the Adirondack League Club in Old Forge. The Club owns more than fifty thousand acres in Hamilton and Herkimer Counties. The organization, with four hundred members, is seventh-largest landowner inside the blue line. Since 2000, six of their most remote cabins have burned mysteriously. The Club's general manager, Egan Willard, spoke with Brian Mann. He says there have been two attacks this year.

Anyone with information can call the state police in Herkimer at 315-866-7275. State police and the Department of Environmental Conservation are also investigating an unrelated case of possible arson in Franklin County, where two bridges were damaged on the former Champion timberlands.  Go to full article
