Women's Crisis Shelter Opens In Southern Franklin County
Women and children in southern Franklin county have a new refuge if they're suffering
from domestic violence. An organization called Comlinks unveiled a safe house
on Sunday May 1, 2005 that will offer emergency shelter. In the past, women were
forced to drive fifty miles. As Brian Mann reports, advocates say the home will
offer families a chance to start over away from the threat of abuse and intimidation.

makes gift of valuable domain names to Prescott College
Saranac Lake and Adirondacks.com join forces to help preserve historic buildings
throughout Saranac Lake.
Rob Grant '75
of Rob Grant & Associates in Saranac Lake, recently made a
gift to Prescott College in the form of educational domain names
designed to drive Internet traffic to the Prescott College Web site.
"I am especially excited about
the potential for domains like www.
.com that would allow Prescott College the opportunity to
create a major portal dedicated to environmental concerns
and showcase the many achievements of Prescott's faculty and
Grant worked closely with the college exploring and developing a
unique online network of educational Websites through his Internet
consulting firm Adirondacks. com.
Grant said his company worked with Rachel Yoder, director of alumni
relations, and Kevin Beyer, Web administrator, to make the domain
"These education domains represent a wonderful opportunity
for Prescott College to build-out and create a unique network of
dedicated 'vertical' sites that can showcase the College's unique
academic programs online and attract potential applicants to the
college admissions process," Grant said.
"This is especially important in today's highly competitive
environment where private colleges are struggling to attract students
and maintain enrollment. Very few, if any, private colleges have
such a powerful network or online admissions platform."
A recent survey conducted by Peterson's Educational Guide found
that more than 35 percent of all U.S. students used the Internet
to search for schools and apply online.
The domains Grant donated to Prescott College include:
This means that a potential student anywhere in the world who types
one of these URLs will be routed to the Prescott College Web site.
Grant said that by branding these various education domains and
building sites around them, Prescott College will benefit from search
engine traffic and from intuitive searches.
"A student looking for www.EnvironmentalScienceDegrees.com
will default directly into one of Prescott College's education sites,"
Grant said. "This is why major companies like Peterson's Guide
own important domains like www.BoardingSchools.com.
These domains generate highly qualified leads to the company's educational
directory. In turn, schools pay Peterson's significant dollars to
advertise on their site and gain exposure tothese potential applicants."
Grant said a domain essentially has two components of value: a brand
value and an intuitive value. "The more descriptive and memorable
a domain is, the higher its brand value is in the eyes of the consumer,"
"This is especially true if a domain translates well across
a variety of media including print, TV, radio, the Internet, etc.
Generally, the more highly targeted a domain is, the more valuable
its brand appeal is. A good example of this is a premier domain
like www.CatholicSchools.com." Intuitive value is created when
a computer user types in a specific name or topic followed by the
dot-com extension. "These domains represent the most valuable
assets in the industry and command staggering prices," Grant
said. "Recent sales of significant domains include business.com
for $7 million, wine.com for $3 million, and autos.com for $2.2
The gifted domains to Prescott College are valued at $60,000. Grant's
company has been acquiring domain properties since 1996. The process,
he said, is complicated and depends on a variety of factors. "I
have many fond memories of Prescott and the many wonderful and highly
unusual friends I made during the late 70s," he said. "My
hope is to help the college as much as I can. The Internet is a
good first step."
