LAKE PLACID - 'Tis the season for giving, and this week in the Lake Placid News, we have a report on a local church youth group raising funds for two mission trips next year.

In our monthly Giving Back feature, Staff Writer Griffin Kelly speaks with the leaders of the Adirondack Community Church youth group in Lake Placid planning mission trips to Delaware and Cambodia next year. It's their way of giving back, and residents can help them by donating to their cause.

In other news, we have coverage of last weekend's Holiday Village Stroll, the state Department of Environmental Conservation's $13.1 million plans to create a recreation complex and "Gateway to the Adirondacks" at the former Frontier Town theme park at North Hudson, the judge's dismissal of a controversial Adirondack snowmobile trail lawsuit and the new owners of WNBZ-FM.
