Re "Outdoor gyms aim to reduce health woes," Dec. 28 Los Angeles County is heading in the right direction by installing outdoor fitness centers at some parks. Because the centers are too costly to put in all parks, the county ought to consider the outdoor gymnastic apparatus that the city of Los Angeles has had in most of its parks for 60 years.

She didn't want to jinx herself. An exhausted Danni talked to the media Tuesday and said she has not decided how to spend the money, save one small splurge: She and Jeff, who were the only two guaranteed finalists going into Monday night's competition, made a pact that the winner would take the other one along on a vacation to reward all their hard work.
