Weston native is young inventor

WESTON

Weston native Nicholas Powley was two years old when his parents put him on one of those octopus-style amusement park rides.

His parents worried something was wrong when he sat rigid, staring at nothing.

But when they asked him if he was all right, he slowly declared: "I know how it works!"

The young inventor who runs a business called Open Forum Design is profiled today in the Pioneer Press of St. Paul, Minn.
