Fort Drum's Rt.26 plans worry neighbors

As deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan wind down, soldiers are getting more time at home. That means a growing population around Fort Drum near Watertown, and more traffic.

One particularly clogged road is State Route 26, a publicly accessible road that divides the Army base in two. It separates Wheeler-Sack Airfield and some training areas from the main part of the base.

Army planners are considering putting controls on the free-flowing traffic on Route 26. And that worries nearby towns. Joanna Richards reports.  Go to full article

Carthage Teen Awaits Confirmation of ?Near-Impossible? Bowling Feat

A 17-year-old in Carthage may very well be one of the best young bowlers in the world. Or - he's a cheater who some say should be banned from the sport for life. It all started in December. Robert Mushtare bowled a 900 series. That's three perfect games. Or 36 strikes in a row. Only 8 bowlers have ever done this - officially, anyway - since 1997. That's when tthe US Bowling Congress or USBC first started sanctioning 900 series. No youth has ever been recognized for the feat. Mushtare not only bowled a 900 series - he did it three different times. Each time at the Pine Plains Bowling Center in Carthage. But there's a problem. The USBC has refused so far to sanction any of the series. The first was thrown out on a technicality having to do with league signups. The other two are still being investigated by the USBC. Bowling chat rooms are abuzz with rumors about whether Robert did or didn't bowl the 900. Meanwhile the high school student waits for the official ruling. The US Bowling Congress is not commenting publicly on the case. A spokesman told the Watertown Daily Times only that it was still "under investigation." Gregory Warner spoke to Jeanne Layhee, manager at Pine Plains Bowling Center.  Go to full article
