When Jonathan Schuchman arrived at Westminster City Park on July 9, he knew it would be fun. "We got to bring all the balls down and play whatever we wanted to play," said the 12-year-old counselor-in-training for the City of Westminster's Department of Recreation and Parks.

Cherney said she has the goal to keep kids moving all year long, and to that end, she created the program Rec on the Move, last September.

The latest episode of "Parks and Recreation" did so many things to make me happy. Let's make a list. 1.) Acknowledged the rare and beautiful thing that is Ron and Leslie's deep friendship that has not a trace of romance to it, despite the fact that they are of opposite gender and both heterosexual. 2.)
