The kids are back in school and lots of adults are back at work today after a long weekend. But if you've got an open day, the skating's free at Ashland's ice rink.

The Ashland Rotary Centennial Ice Rink is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Winburn Way, across from the playground at Lithia Park in downtown Ashland. Entry's free for the day, although skaters who need to rent their blades will have to come up with $2.50.

The outdoor rink is open through February, weather permitting. A schedule is available at www.mailtribune.com/ashlandicerink.
