Spring 2005

Dear Readers,

As spring approaches, replacing ice-capped treetops with lavish buds and blossoms, sit back and enjoy our biggest issue ever. Our staff here at All Points North is growing rapidly, bringing in a slew of new story ideas and perspectives. So kick your feet up, relax, and enjoy some of our springtime stories.

Think this winter was chilly? Read about some local penguins who took the big plunge for charity. Take a trip back in time and experience the 1980 Winter Olympic Games in Lake Placid. Brush up on your bird watching skills and discover the marvel of the bluebird. Read why some Vermonters put away their fishing poles and load up their guns each pike season. And when you're done with that, check out why this county jail needs a 30-million dollar makeover.

As All Points North's new Editor in Chief, I look forward to hearing any feedback from you about our stories. And as always, enjoy!
