Catherine Lutz - Aspen Daily News Staff Writer
Sat 12/15/2007 10:00PM MST

Around the world, Israel defeated its Arab neighbors in the Six-Day War and the Biafran War of independence began to tear apart the fledgling nation of Nigeria.

Summit for Life Report

Hello Friends & Family,

I'm less than an hour away from attempting the 3,267' climb up Aspen Mountain with at least 200 others in the 2nd annual Summit for Life challenge to help promote education and awareness about organ and tissue donation. This event is the brainchild of my buddy Chris Klug, who I'm sure you all remember as an Olympic Bronze Medalist in the Parallel Snowboard GS in the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City and the first ever organ transplant survivor to medal in the Olympic games.

Aspen/Pitkin County Airport To Offer Free Wi-Fi

On December 3, the Aspen/Pitkin County airport will begin providing the public with free wireless internet service in the airport terminal building. For the past two years, the airport has had a paid wireless internet system operated under a commercial contract which expired in November. Under that system, users had to pay $9.95 per day for internet access.

Happy, Snowy December!
