Palomares Academy Unveils Joint Use Fitness Area

The vertical press, primarily a shoulder and arm exercise, allows two people to exercise simultaneously. The apparatus allows users to lift variable amounts of their own body weight. The equipment offers a great range of exertion, from jocks testing their strength to seniors looking for moderate resistance exercise. The four-person leg press (background) is among the equipment that facilitates social interaction, motivates group exercise and lets friends and acquaintances chat while they work out.

Support Your Local Trees

Watching the Grass Grow . . . or Walking Your Mountain Lion on the Treadmill

The Fulton Mall in downtown Fresno, Calif., one of the first outdoor malls ever built, opened to fanfare and great optimism in 1964. Montgomery Ward's, one of the mall's anchor stores, moved out in 1970. To paraphrase Louis XV, "Apres Montgomery Ward's, le deluge." Today the "ghost mall" suffers years of maintenance neglect, evident in its broken fountains, crumbling sculptures and overgrown shrubs. Office buildings on the mall are 71 percent vacant. The city's solution: use $16 million from the U.S. DOT to build a road through the mall in an attempt at revitalization. No Fresno general fund money
will be used.
