Love on the ...

It was eight years ago when Jean, an elementary school teacher here in the Kansas City area, saw one of my flyers about The Great Saunter.  Being physically active she decided it was something she wanted to do.  Inviting her boyfriend, knowing that he was not as physically active, she was surprised by his quick and affirmative response.   You see Jim decided this would be a great opportunity to propose marriage  while on their trip to NYC for the Saunter.  He proposed to her at the top of the Empire State Building.  Thus, had Cy Adler never started this event, this would never have happened at such a grand location.  It is interesting how one event can lead to others, and am sure there are many other interesting stories that have happened because of this great event.

Rock Fall on the Palisades

A 500-foot rock face came crashing down from the Palisades cliffs along the Hudson River in Alpine, N.J. on Saturday night, shaking the ground for more than half a minute and dumping a fresh layer of boulders over a 100-yard strip of parkland below State Line Lookout. The shaking was strong enough to be registered by a seismic station a mile and a half away, at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, but no one was injured.
