It took more than 300 years for the Church to admit that Galileo was right and to clear his name of heresy. On April 13, 1742, George Friedrich Handel's "Messiah" premieres in Dublin. Although singing the oratorio'has become a Christmas tradi- tion, the "Messiah" made its world premiere during the Christian season of Lent. Handel composed the score for "Messiah" in just 24 days. On April 15, 1865, President Abraham Lincoln succumbs to a gunshot wound inflicted by an assassin the night before, and he is pronounced dead at 7:22 a.m. During the autopsy, Mary Lincoln sent the surgeons a note requesting they cut a lock of Lincoln's hair for her. * On April 14, 1912, just before midnight in the North Atlantic, the RMS Titanic fails to divert its course from an iceberg, ruptures its hull and begins to sink. The Titanic's hull was divided into 16 compartments that were presumed to be watertight, and the ship was considered unsink- able. * On April 16, 1947, in Texas City's port on Galveston Bay, a fire aboard the French freighter Grandcamp ignites ammonium nitrate, causing a mas- sive blast that destroys much of the city and takes nearly 600 lives. The fire department tried to douse the flames, but the ship was so hot that the water from their fire hoses instantly vaporized. On April 17, 1964, the Ford Mustang is officially unveiled by Henry Ford II at the World's Fair in Flushing Meadows, N.Y. The car debuted that same day, and almost 22,000 Mustangs were immediately snapped up by buyers. Named for a World War II fighter plane, the first models carried a starting price tag of around $2,300. On April 18, 1983, Joan Benoit wins her second Boston Marathon in the women's division with a time of 2:22:43. The inaugural Boston Marathon was run on April 19, 1897, and was a men-only event until 1972, when women were officially allowed to compete. (c) 2010 King Features Synd., Inc.

TIE YA FeLT M A SENIOR NL:WS LINE By Matilda Charles It doesn't take much for my genealogy bug to rise again, and I'm not the only one. What's re- ignited my interest this time is a quotation I found online: To forget one's ancestors is to be a brook without a source, a tree without a root. Going on vacation to hunt for our roots is becoming very popular among seniors, but a genealogy vacation isn't something you can do on the spur of the moment. You need to plan far ahead, For a successful trip, have a goal in mind, whether it's to research a certain person or just to see what other family information you can find. Look into genealogy-specific tours, especially if you're going to a foreign country. Transla- tors will come in handy, and they'll know de- tails about the area. Check the genealogy tours by European Focus (www.europeanfocus.com). It will even do the photography for you! Elder- hostel, now called Exploritas (www.exploritas.org), sponsors trips around the world. Also consider a visit to the National Archives in Washington, D.C. If you go, take copies of all of your records, not the originals. That name jotted on a scrap of paper might be the key to your research. Also, take along two digital cameras with extra mem- ory. Take a handful of memory sticks and put the photos on those as duplicates. Mail them back to yourself, just in case. If it's not possible for you to travel, or if your family tree is already completed, there are still ways for you to stay active in genealogy and help others at the same time. Consider teaching a how-to genealogy class. Hunt for genealogy books at flea markets and yard sales. Look at the index: Is your family listed? When complete records are unavailable, sometimes it's enough to go visit the general area where our ancestors once lived. 894-9007 Clearwater Lodge Weekly SUDOKU Deep Cleaning Carpet & Fabric Protection Tile & Grout Cleaning Area Rug Cleaning Most Furniture Moved by Linda Thistle 4 7 2 3 4 6 2 5 5 7 9 5 7 8 1 3 6 9 2 4 8 7 8 3 9 3 1 4 Place a number in the empty boxes in such a way that each row across, each column down and each small 9-box square contains all of the numbers from one to nine.

LAFF - A - DAY "I'd marry him in a minute if it weren't for my pride-I just can't get myself to ask him!" DOLLARS & SENSE By David Uffington If fears about the economy have kept you and your family from taking summer vacations for the past few years, you're not alone. But many families now are ready to take short, inexpensive vacations. Consider spending a few days or a week at a nearby state park. Many parks have cabins, lodge rooms or even yurts to rent for less than the price of motels. They might have signups for dates far in advance, but camp- sites are generally more readily available. Check Web sites for individual state parks, as not all state parks are alike. The Web sites will include infor- mation on the surrounding area and special park activ- ities, such as bike/run events, volunteer day and certain amenities that might not be available each day due to maintenance. Check the amenities offered. Some parks are rural and rustic with few amenities. Some have swimming, hiking, water skiing and even golf. Those with lakes often have boat or fishing gear rentals. Many have historic displays in learning centers, and rangerqed programs such as wildlife photography and tracking. Look at Google satellite maps to get an idea of the park's available space and layout If there's consider- able open space, think about taking sports equipment, such as baseball gear, a croquet set or badminton net. Are there biking trails? Take bikes for everyone. Look to thrift shops if you don't have these, or borrow from a neighbor. The same with tents and sleeping bags if you'll be camping -- acquire them as inexpensively as you can. Call the park directly instead of making reservations online, especially if you want more deluxe accommoda- tions such as a cabin or lodge room (Most online reser- vation sites will charge you a fee to reserve through them.) If the accommodations for your chosen dates aren't available, ask to be put on a wait list. Or ask for other accommodation suggestions. You may have to put down a deposit in advance If you live near your state line, don't forget to check the parks in your neighboring state. Find out whether your credit union or auto club has any special discount coupons for state parks, or ask the park. One of the best parts of vacationing at a state park: You'll save on gas as you won't have to drive long distances to reach your destination. (c) 2010 King Features Synd., Inc.
