“Keep Moving Forward”


BALLSTON SPA – For most of us, learning to drive is a particular rite of passage during our teenage years. The excitement of receiving a learner’s permit from the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is second only to passing your official road test. For Ben Ekland of Juniper Lane in Ballston Spa, passing the permit exam was the culmination of three years of hard work and preparation. Though Ben has his challenges, his determination and positive attitude should serve to remind us all what we’re capable of when we put our minds to it.

King Pin

On a Friday afternoon at his favorite bowling alley, Macallan Gagné picks up his ball, a swirling red and black six-pounder, and makes his way to the lane. His focus is on the 10 pins that stand 60 feet in front of him. He begins his delivery, stopping just short of the foul line to release the ball on its path. The ball rolls slowly, hooking just enough to knock down nine pins. It’s a decent roll for an experienced bowler and an even better attempt for the more casual bowler. For a 4-year-old, who’s playing without bumpers, it’s practically unbelievable.
