The Madison Club?s 18-hole, championship course develops over gently rolling hills and winds through trees for a layout engulfed in a spectacular setting that incorporates the natural landscape into course play. Multiple water hazards challenge the golfer, as highlighted on the interesting par 3 17th, a hole that forces golfers to carry a short-iron tee shot over open water and has been lauded as one of western Pennsylvania?s best public holes by both the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the fish that cheer on golfers from the green-protecting pond. Cut in to the rolling hills, holes are bordered with slopes and mounds that redirect errant shots back on to the carpet-like fairways. After a day at the links, guests can unwind with a light meal from the course restaurant or toast to the memory of broken golf tees with a drink from its full-service bar.
Silver Star Stables equips novice and advanced equestrians with the skills, mounts, meals, and guides to complete one-day or overnight rides through 10,000 acres of scenic trail territory. Like Santa, rides can be summoned seven days a week with the proper telephone call. During overnight family campouts, kith and kin congregate around Silver Star's on-site lake at 11 a.m. to set up self-provided tents or campers, before meeting for 30 minutes of individual riding instruction and equine mind-melding in the facility's indoor arena. Over the course of their stays, equestrians feast on provided dinner and breakfast, then depart at 9 a.m. the next morning for a one-hour trail ride to tearfully end romances with old oak trees.

In 1969, aficionados from six midwestern states formed the Midwest UFO Network?MUFON for short?to improve and organize their growing reports of UFO sightings. Now known as the Mutual UFO Network, MUFON's more than 3,000 members have formed chapters throughout the United States and various countries around the globe.
More than 900 of those members are trained field investigators who interview UFO witnesses and compose written accounts of sightings. Some of those findings, as well as the latest research findings, are showcased at MUFON's annual International UFO Symposium, which rotates through the United States and is sometimes held on Earth's second moon. MUFON runs similar events throughout the year, and prints more info about sightings and UFO science in its monthly journal.
If residents of Westmoreland County want to see a Broadway musical, they no longer have to tunnel to the famed street to do so. They can merely purchase tickets to seasons at Split Stage Productions, a local company that stages famed shows such as Hair and Avenue Q with area performers.
The artistic brains behind the operation are co-founders Rob Jessup and Nate Newell, both Western Pennsylvania transplants and theater veterans who were inspired by the region's need for thought-provoking, dynamic drama. "I think that the big thing is the risks that we're willing to take," Newell says when discussing what sets Split Stage apart. Those risks have paid off: a flagship production of Rent was, according to Jessup, "a success," and helped cement Split Stage's reputation as an up-and-coming company.
