LAKE PLACID - It looks like the village of Lake Placid - its residents and businesses - survived the planned nine-hour power outage the night of Monday, Nov. 13, and some even had fun doing so.

Staff Writer Griffin Kelly stopped by the Lake Placid Pub and Brewery to check out the blackout party and talk to residents and visitors during the early hours of the outage which was needed to fix some electrical lines.

In other news, it looks as though winter weather has settled into the Adirondack Park as temperatures continue to be cold enough for the Whiteface Mountain Ski Center to make snow around the clock. That's good news for skiers. On Wednesday, Nov. 15, the state Olympic Regional Development Authority announced, through the governor's office, that the Whiteface and Gore mountain ski centers will open early this year, on Saturday, Nov 18. The originally planned opening date was Friday, Nov. 24.

In our Eye on Education feature, Griffin stopped by the Lake Placid High School Tuesday night, Nov. 14, to report on the student athlete appreciation ceremony.

In addition to other news stories from around the Olympic Region, we also have columns from Naj Wikoff (On the Scene), Martha Allen (Martha Sez) and Frank Shatz (World Focus).



Last week was a busy week in the local sports world as the fall high school season came to a close as the World Cup bobsled and skeleton season kicked off in Lake Placid.

The high school teams were on the road to take on the best athletes in the state. The Bombers' magical boys soccer season ended in the state semifinals with a 6-0 loss to Byron-Bergen in Middletown. Lake Placid also had a large contingent of runners at the state meet in Wayne. Full reports from both events can be found in this week's LPN.

Back on the home front, the highest level of international bobsled and skeleton was on display at the Olympic Sports Complex at Mount Van Hoevenberg. The Americans held their own and collected several medals throughout the two days of competition.



Columnist Joe Hackett shares his deep, dark secret to hunting down those elusive whitetails: Get out in the woods and stay there.

Also on this week's Adirondack Expeditions page, Outdoors Writer Justin Levine offers a few family-friendly suggestions for getting outdoors between now and when full-blown winter descends on the region.
