Not all the news coming from local government is quite so serious. From the county comes a notice of winter sports fun in the realm of cross-country skiing. For only S2, área residents can learn the art, and even use free ski equipment on loan from local merchants. Unlike the more familiar downhill skiing, cross country is generaliy an inexpensive pasttime. Once equipment is purchased (at about half the cost for downhill stuff), skiers can take advantage of the new trails set up in county parks, like the ones out Huron River Drive. Lessons start January 7, and more info can be obtained from the Washtenaw County Parks and Recreation Commission.
