Would someone please give me a hot link, or the url address for the daily mining gazette. Every search I've tried (Google, Yahoo, MSN ) will not work. I was told they changed the url lately, but how do I find it? Thanks in advance if anyone is able to help me.

Thanks for the quick feedback on the bikes.
I am trying to decide whether to bring mine or not, but look forward to miles of scenic riding along the shore.
Thanks again

My wife, Nadine Simonson Hoffman ('56) and I will be attending yet another wonderful all school reunion again this summer. We always look forward to these great events, giving us a chance to renew acquaintances and make new ones.

That being said, does anyone know of a fly fishing guide (trout) in the area and a place where I might rent a bike? One last request, will there be any handball players attending?
Look forward to being there
