    Father of skier evacuated with stroke

     NAGANO, Japan (AP) -- The father of a member of the U.S. cross-country ski team was to be airlifted from the Olympics after suffering a stroke, officials said.
     Dr. Terry Weaver, the father of skier Patrick Weaver, would be taken from Nagano back to Boston Saturday for continuing treatment at Massachusetts General Hospital, the U.S. Olympic Committee said.
     The elder Weaver, of Lenox, Mass., was stricken while watching freestyle aerials early in the week. Details of his treatment in Japan were not disclosed.
     USOC spokesman Mike Moran said Weaver would be flown by helicopter from Nagano to Matsumoto Airport, then taken by plane directly to Boston's Logan Airport.
