Baseball is right around the corner, so on Sunday, Tony Bolden in Linden, Texas, has his son Bentley, 7, out running with a parachute behind his back to build leg strength. Tony should know about running. In 2007, he set the Queen City High School record in the 100-meter dash. "My record's since been broken," he said.
Professional painter Will Head is sprucing up a storefront on the Linden, Texas, town square. The building's owner is Weldon Corbett, and when all the renovation work is done, the store will be for rent. Linden's Garden Club and others keep the flower boxes filled around the square.
When the sun comes out, so do the children in the Linden City Park. From left, David Chambers, 10, Rachel Chambers, 5, and Alice Thompson, 9, are using nature's materials to simulate the Minecraft game, their parents said.
