No Cape Air flights from Lake Clear to White Plains, for now

Correction: the title and opening paragraph of this story have been changed to reflect the fact that Cape Air is still exploring ways to fly passengers to New York City.

Cape Air will continue flying passengers between Boston's Logan International Airport and the Adirondack Regional Airport in Lake Clear; but it won't add flights to White Plains, NY -- at least not yet.

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has awarded the Hyannis, Mass.-based airline a four-year, $1.8 million annual subsidy. The money will allow the company to continue providing three daily round-trip flights between Boston and Lake Clear.

Elected officials, a group of local residents and the major employers in the Tri-Lakes region had pushed for additional flights between Lake Clear and White Plains, but DOT rejected that proposal.  Go to full article

TUPPER LAKE, N.Y. (AP) State police investigators say they're hoping to speak to the person or persons who would have had contact with an 18-year-old college student who disappeared in the Adirondacks while home on spring break two years ago.
