Garden Station has recently installed a wheelchair ramp and ADA-accessible entryway, and now volunteers aim to build wheelchair-accessible community-garden beds for residents with disabilities. Three 2-foot-wide and 6 foot-long garden beds will sit in each 18-foot-long table, which sits 36 inches off the ground. The beds all have 6 inches–8 inches of soil to accommodate growing vegetables. The specifications of the beds allow wheelchair users to easily access the table, reach across the bed, dig into the soil, and plant seeds. Garden Station requires additional funding to purchase untreated, weather-resistant western-red cedar to ensure that the plants the beds produce will be free of unwanted chemicals and safe to eat.
Shannon Campbell specializes in preparing clients for armed self-defense, with an emphasis on safe practices when within the home. At an outdoor range that more closely elicits the feel of a neighborhood backyard than a shooting gallery, Shannon demonstrates proper firearm operation before supervising clients as they apply what they've learned. In addition to this coaching, he leads a Refuse To Be A Victim seminar, which teaches participants how to maintain awareness in threatening situations, such as a world ice-cream shortage, and how to prevent a criminal confrontation. He also hosts Little Sportsman sessions, which educate youths on how to responsibly handle a firearm while building community.
The first Funny Bone was born more than three decades ago after a comedy show left cofounder Gerald Kubach's sides aching so bad that he knew he had to get into the standup business. Now in more than 25 cities, the clubs have played host to such luminaries as Jerry Seinfeld, Dave Chappelle, and Roseanne Barr. In Dayton, while patrons practice projecting their laughter toward the stage they can quash hunger by digging into a menu of pub fare.
Having soared to the midpoint of their 2011 season with three hard-fought victories, the Dayton Flyers look to continue their ascent in the Pioneer Football League standings by defending their home turf at Welcome Stadium. The team moved to the NCAA I-AA mid-major level in 1993, earning a reputation for excellence with the second-best winning percentage in NCAA FCS football since the turn of the century and a stockpile of 11 Pioneer Football League championships to its name. Head Coach Rick Chamberlin leads the squadron of gridiron giants, frantically waving a traffic-control wand to direct footballs safely into the hands of his receivers. Redshirt freshman quarterback Will Bardo pilots the offense in his first year of action, locking onto top-tier targets such as senior wide receiver Luke Bellman. Team captain and defensive end Devon Langhorst holds down the other side of the ball, distracting quarterbacks from their play calls with fascinating anecdotes about fellow Daytonians and team namesakes Orville and Wilbur Wright.

Tac Force Challenge tests the strength of racers by putting them through the rigors of an adventure 5K obstacle course designed by power lifters, martial-arts experts, and special-operations professionals. The muddy, muscle-straining course houses 31 obstacles, such as rope walls, river dashes, unbalanced beams, log trips, and tunnels that force runners to use all their strength and jet-pack fuel to reach the finish line. Participants begin their first race ranked as a Private and advance closer to General as they complete each run. This progress is saved in the Tac Force database, which catalogs completion dates so that the government knows whom to call in the event of a sweaty-bicep shortage.
