How Does Jumping Into Icy Goodyear Lake Feel?

How Does Jumping Into

Icy Goodyear Lake Feel?

Haven’t you asked yourself that question? This year, reporter Parker Fish took one for the team, taking part in the Goodyear Lake Polar Bear Jump and returning safely to share his experience with the rest of us landlubbers. Also in this week’s Hometown Oneonta & The Freeman’s Journal, Managing Editor Libby Cudmore and her husband, photographer Ian Austin, took a side trip to Oneonta Falls during a trip to Portland, Ore., expecting a pristine vista; instead, they found 42,000 charred acres that burned last September. Read their report from the scene. And much more exclusive material in the week’s newspapers, on newsstands this afternoon.
