Lorna and Neil Miles are ahead of their time.

For 13 years they’ve been going on walking tours that have taken them away from crowds and to less frequently trod trails.

The retired San Jose couple — she worked as a nurse and he an engineer — have hiked in more than half-a-dozen countries as well as Yellowstone National Park.

They’re keeping their fingers crossed that they can go on two tours this fall with Vermont-based Country Walkers: one in Acadia National Park in Maine and the other in Nova Scotia. (The latter depends on whether Canada opens its borders to U.S. travelers.)

A big attraction for them now is the apparent safety of hiking or walking outdoors in the time of COVID-19. They say their friends’ interest in their foot-powered adventures

Cheektowaga native Ryan Ciminelli, one of the last Western New York natives competing full time on the Professional Bowling Association Tour, has announced his retirement as a full-time pro.

When Ciminelli began on the PBA Tour, he was one of several Western New York natives or residents bowling full time, joining Tom Baker, Jack Jurek, Brad Angelo, Joe Ciccone, Liz Johnson and John Szczerbinski.

Ciminelli, 34, recently made the surprise announcement on Facebook:

“The time has come in my family’s journey for me to retire as a full-time professional,” he wrote. “This comes with a heavy heart, as I have put my heart and soul into this game for 30 years.
