    By Ellen Samsell Salas

    “It was an adventure. I can’t believe we did this,” says Canton native Ken Locke, who with his wife Amanda has accomplished a mighty feat.

    Fifty states. Fifty marathons. Together. In only eight years.

    Amanda downplays their feat saying, “It wasn’t pretty. We didn’t train. We didn’t eat right. We are not fast. We just went out there and did it.” Our attitude was, “let’s enjoy it,” says Ken. With times from four to eight hours,

    A New American Outlaw

    By John Midkiff

    Cody Bolden is as American as they come — a fan of country music, tasty pie, and good whiskey. He grew up in Georgia but spent every other weekend with his father on his family’s property in Alabama, affectionately referred to as “the farm.”

    When asked what that was like, Bolden said, “Georgia is home; it always will be, but it was nice to get back there. It was like camping with power, sitting at the pond, which

     by Jessica Asbell

    Alicia Berenson, famous painter, killed her husband. That much is clear. But why?

But she did make a statement in a painting.

    While under house arrest and awaiting trial, Alicia painted a self-portrait titled Alcestis. A little-known Greek tragedy,
