Cyclist, 81, to ride 2,000 miles for charity
YUMA — An 81-year-old man has set off on a 2,000-mile bicycle ride around Arizona’s perimeter.
Bill Anderson of Yuma plans to complete the trip in 14 to 16 days. He is riding to raise money for Yuma’s Crossroads Mission, which provides shelter, meals, showers and clothing to the homeless.
Last year, Mr. Anderson rode from the Mexico border to Canada and back again to raise money. In 2004, he made two trips for the mission: one from Canada to Mexico and another from San Diego to Jacksonville Beach, Fla.
Mr. Anderson left Yuma on Tuesday in his most recent ride.
Power outage strands roller-coaster riders
HOT SPRINGS — A dozen riders on a roller coaster spent a half-hour hanging upside-down — 150 feet above the ground — after a power outage shut down the attraction.
It took about 30 minutes for the city fire department to rescue the riders using a ladder truck Saturday evening, said Aundrea Crary, a spokeswoman for the Magic Springs & Crystal Falls amusement park.
Spectators cheered when the riders were brought to the ground from the highest point of a loop on the X-Coaster, but one passenger vomited after reaching safety.
The X-Coaster was one of several rides brought to a halt by the outage that originated somewhere near the park. The park resumed normal operations, although the X-Coaster remained closed. Entergy Corp. was investigating, but crews found no faulty wiring.
