This was a daily newspaper puzzle that someone gave me to solve, and I'm stuck, too. What am I missing?

Code:

+--------------+--------------+------------+
| 69  4   1    | 37  367  8   | 5    39  2 |
| 7   5   69   | 2   1    36  | 39   8   4 |
| 3   8   2    | 5   4    9   | 1    7   6 |
+--------------+--------------+------------+
| 5   1   3679 | 4   3679 367 | 2367 23  8 |
| 4   2   367  | 8   367  1   | 367  5   9 |
| 8   69  3679 | 379 5    2   | 367  4   1 |
+--------------+--------------+------------+
| 19  3   5    | 6   2    4   | 8    19  7 |
| 16 679 4    | 79  8    5   | 29  12 3 |
| 2   79  8    | 1   379  37  | 4    6   5 |
+--------------+--------------+------------+

I see a skyscraper of 3's in columns 4 & 8, and a skyscraper of 9's in rows 4 & 9.

Excellent explanation of skyscrapers and strong links here:

TexCat,
Thanks. I didn't expect to see a skyscraper in a daily newspaper puzzle.
