For those who keep coins around, there's an opportunity coming up to learn whether that old penny is worth a dime.

From Tuesday through Saturday, the International Coin Collectors Association will be at the Hampton Inn, 377 Cedar Court in Craig, hoping to find rare coins and old currency, among other items.

Experts at the event will pay for nearly all coins, vintage jewelry, bullion, Krugerrands and paper currency from the early 1800s and 1900s, according to a news release from the ICCA.

The ICCA will also purchase gold items, including necklaces and earrings, or old class rings.

The organization will be at the Hampton Inn from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

McDonald's opens revamped Playland

The Playland at McDonald's reopened last week, and it is rockin' — literally.

With the exception of the slide, much of the old Playland equipment is gone, replaced by interactive equipment shaped like musical instruments.

Items include a slide based on a piano, an oversized xylophone and guitar on the ground, and a piano to walk on.

The really cool part? The equipment makes the sounds of those instruments.

"It's all designed to keep the kids healthy and active," owner Chris Nichols said.

The slide from the old Playland remains and has been modified to be more handicap accessible.

The new equipment is produced by Englewood-based Playtime LLC.

Check it out at 1080 W. Victory Way.

TMH Medical Clinic offering Botox

The Memorial Hospital Medical Clinic, 785 Russell St., started offering Botox injections last month.

"Craig's never had any ability to seek that kind of treatment before, and so now you're not only able to get those injections, but you're able to receive them from a surgeon," TMH spokeswoman Jennifer Riley said.

The injections are being given by Dr. Stan Pense, who has been trained to administer the injections, Riley said.

Most injections require one clinic consultation and one follow-up appointment, although some people may need multiple consultations, the hospital said.

There is a special introductory price of $99 for the first consultation.

TMH Medical Clinic can be contacted at 826-2400.
