If Neal Prather was around to see it, he'd be proud of the new playground at Logan-Hubble Memorial Park. The spiffy slide and climber combo is made of some 35,000 recycled milk jugs and comes with a 100-year guarantee. Kids will be whee-ing and laughing around it into the 22nd century. Prather, a Garrard County native, did not know his name would be attached to the playground when he died earlier this year.

They are neither hardcore hikers nor especially athletic. It's a kinder, gentler kind of hiking that requires mostly only a bottle of water and a desire to get out and go. My husband and I have one common interest. We like to walk. Now that the kids are grown and mostly out of the house, we felt the need to find something we could do together that we both enjoy.
