    MAN OF STEEL
    Was it a bird? A plane? No, it was the man of steel — Superman!
    On any given morning at Aultman North, you never know what might happen. One thing’s for sure, the morning group in the fitness/cardiac department has its share of fun and, let’s say, interesting times.
    Take one day a few weeks ago. Jim Langbein of Lawrence Township celebrated his 69th birthday. One of the morning group members, Mike Miller of Green, gave him a pair of Superman shorts to celebrate. To know Jim is to love him, say others there. He is like the Energizer Bunny, always on the move from one machine to another, and always smiling and talking to others. So, when Miller gave him the shorts, it was too much for Langbein to resist. He knew what he had to do — put them on over his outfit and wear them for aerobics.
