This week's cover

Go fly a kite — or two. Brian Paul found the perfect spot in Robbins Park on Saturday afternoon to fly his two super-sized kites. He flew his Trilobite16 (54 square feet with 42-foot long tails) and an octopus kite (26 feet long) while sitting back in a lawn chair. He was forced to leave his relaxing post when it came time to reel the kites in. Paul first discovered this hobby while attending a recent kite flying festival in Naperville. (Jim Slonoff photos)
