The time-honored sledding reputation of Memorial Park drew Jacob Dahl here, where the slipping and sliding fun is now at its peak thanks to recent snowfall. Dahl lives in Illinois but is on a work assignment in the area. He said his friend Amanda Gray of Muncie, pictured at the top of the hill, recommended the park site. The Paul Simon lyrics of his hit song ring true: “You know the nearer your destination ...The more you’re slip slidin’ away.”
