PAUL SMITHS - Paul Smith's College will host a meeting next week on the future of the state Adirondack Park Agency's Visitor Interpretive Center in Paul Smiths, which Gov. David Paterson has proposed closing along with the Newcomb VIC.

PSC spokesman Ken Aaron said college officials have asked a wide range of people, including state Sen. Betty Little and Assemblywomen Janet Duprey and Teresa Sayward to attend Thursday's meeting. Representatives of the Adirondack Park Institute, which raises funds to support educational programs at both VICs, and any organizations interested in exploring ways to keep the Paul Smiths VIC open are also being invited.
