Richard Leonard was an EMT for many years with Indian Lake Volunteer Ambulance Squad. It would be impossible to count the number of four-hour ambulance trips to the Glens Falls Hospital he accomplished.
Many times he undertook t ...

Ice fishing is becoming a way of life for some
By Dick Nelson

If you think these days of winter temperatures aren't fit for man or beast, you don't know the caliber of ice fishermen. They've been out there taking all the nasty stuff Old Man Winter has to offer full in the face and coming back for more.
It's not exactly a parade of fishermen making their way across the frozen expanses, but there are enough out there to make you sit up and take notice.
During the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend snowmobiles and bundled-up ice anglers were noticeable on ...

Ice fishermen ignore the c-c-c-cold
By Dick Nelson

You would think any self-respecting angler would spend the winter preparing for the opening of trout season. Well, if you thought that way you thought wrong.
Even during the coldest days, when numbing temperatures and winds are strong enough to tear the scales off a walleye, area lakes and ponds are dotted with anglers. Apparently many of those fishermen are as cold-blooded as the fish they're trying to catch.
As for me, I no longer have ice running through my veins. Seems I thawed out around th ...

Even more, they were demonstrating their hope of assuring a Happy Birth Day for 11,000 American babies born each day, 700 of whom came into this world with birth defects that disfigured, disabled or killed.
During the traditional Mothers March for the March of Dimes, the women would enlist their neighbors' support and contr ...
