Communication "We are pretty certain
they are within about a quarter mile

circle, but that is still not entirely
precise when you consider the
conditions that we are in right now."
the three climbers have an electronic
locator with them... which is helping
pinpoint the search. They were
travelling with five others yesterday
.. when they fell about 100 feet from a
ledge and were forced to call for help.
Sot: Sgt. Sean Collinson/Clackamas
County Sheriff's Office "I do know they
are cold, I do know they are still able
to communicate, they are still in good
spirits and they are just hoping
rescuers find them soon." officials say
they landed on a plateau and there
isn't enough snow for them to make a
cave, but they have sleeping bags and
are huddling to stay warm. They also
have a Labrador retreiever with them.
This is the same popular mountain where
three climbers died in December after
getting caught in a brutal storm. This
time, rescuers are hopeful.. they'll
get the missing climbers down safely.

Each day during the school year,
Amazement Square has an educational
comic that runs in the Lynchburg News

The strip's main character is the
center's mascot, Scorpy Bug... inspired
by the background of the Square's
historical structure.

pre-Civil Way days and among other
things in recent times, served as a

In addition to Scorpy Bug, the

phrase "Death to bugs" lead to the

Together, Amazement Square's

to educate children with "The Amazing

Fireworks lit up the sky over
Victoria Harbour, on the second day of
the Chinese New Year.

The light show lasted over 20
minutes, ushering in the Year of the
Golden Pig.

There are 12 animals in the Chinese
zodiac, which runs in a 12- year cycle.

According to Chinese astrology,
people born in pig years are supposed
to be lucky, polite, honest,
hardworking and loyal.
