Making the most of the snow

The Ithaca Journal reports that Hammond Hill was busy Saturday, as the Cayuga Nordic Ski Club held its 25th annual 10K ski race for club members, as well as a 5K race and a children's race.

The night before, the news was darker. Police arrested a Freeville man in Groton "suspected of shooting and wounding a South Carolina convenience store clerk in December."

There's also a broad article on Marcellus Shale gas drilling in Pennsylvania and its future in New York.
