This week's cover - Up, up and away

Monroe School fifth grade teacher Matt Oldenburg took a ride on the giant swings with his daughters Elliette and Emelia during the school's annual Family Fun Fest. The event, sponsored by the Monroe School PTO, also featured a rock climbing tower, several bouncy houses and Dave's Traveling World of Reptiles. Several food trucks helped round out the evening of entertainment. (Jim Slonoff photo)
