By Meghan Rubado Staff writer One of several bullets fired into a Syra- cuse home early Saturday struck a 2-year-old boy as he slept in his first-floor bedroom, Syracuse police said. Nyquest Golden was in critical condition Saturday at University Hospital, said Sgt. Tom Connellan, spokesman for city police. Nyquest's mother, Rodneshia Golden, and her boyfriend also were home when the home was attacked at about 4 a.m., Connel- lan said. They were not injured. The house at 135 Wall St. definitely was the target of the shooting, police Chief Gary Miguel said. "It's clear this wasn't someone shooting at somebody on the street and having stray bullets hit a Miguel said. The Syracuse police crime scene unit worked at the scene near the comer of Wall Street and Richmond Avenue, labeling and photographing evidence, including at least nine shell casings. Connellan said there were more shots fired but did not give an exact number. Miguel said city police are "very famil- iar" with a man living at the address. He de- clined to identify the man.

ByMarkWeincr Staff writer The big, hairy nightmare began about three weeks ago at Charles Woodwork's camp on the south end of Skaneateles Lake. First he heard them. Then he smell- ed their droppings. Finally, he saw evidence of their destructive behav- ior: A 90-foot oak tree that shaded the lakeshorc for 70 years was stripped bare in a week. Days later, the oak's twin suffered the same fate. "They took the oaks first, and then they took the Woodworth said. "Then they moved on to the beech and everything else. The whole ground was covered green from little pieces of leaves." With summer two days away, parts of Woodworth's heavily wooded camp near New Hope in Cayuga County look like the start of spring a barren, leafless landscape.

Military jobs still missed. By Peter Lyman Washington bureau BRAC base realignment and closure is a four-letter word that has inspired govern- ment and business leaders in New York and across the nation to launch multimillion-dollar lobbying efforts to keep their military posts open. The goal of such efforts is to save johs and protect the local economy.
