How have you entertained yourself while quarantined? | Contributor Q&A

I’ve avoided boredom during the pandemic by doing lots of hiking (while practicing social distancing, of course)! My boyfriend and I made it our mission to see as many waterfalls as possible, so we’ve been regulars at nearby state parks and state nature preserves. I’m sharing a couple of our favorite Stark County walks and hikes in this month’s “Summer in Stark” section on Page 27. We usually follow up that hiking with cooking dinner or baking a treat, and it’s made for some pretty great days off.

Letter from the Editor: June 2020

I’m not a big fan of summer weather in Ohio. It’s muggy, sweaty and many times, it feels like you’re wading through a swimming pool when leaving the air-conditioned office on a humid day. As someone who has naturally frizzy hair—think Monica from “Friends” when she visits Barbados—I’m not big on dealing with humidity. I prefer to spend my time indoors when the weather gets that torturous.
