Reporter Eerily Discusses McKinley Assassination on 22 Nov 1963 This is a freaky clip. It shows the crowd in Fort Worth, Texas awaiting the arrival of President Kennedy on November 22, 1963 for a luncheon hosted by the chamber of commerce. A reporter from the local ABC affiliate mentions the security requirements that accompany all presidential appearances. He also discusses how security was botched in Buffalo in 1901 when President McKinley was assassinated.

Featured Member- LProud aka Lori Proudman-Brown Hi to my friends at YRT! My name is Lori and I was born in upstate NY in June of 1968. I was adopted at 6 months of age and grew up on a dairy farm about an hour southwest of Albany. I love all animals so this was the perfect place for me. My parents worked hard to give me an ideal childhood and succeeded. I would often sneak out of the house as a young child to go visit my "friends" in the barn. I love to read my paternal Grandma's diaries... "Lori was up first thing this morning with toys in one hand and a cat in the other." (1972) I think it was my childhood and the wonderful & comforting memories of it that make YRT such a favorite of mine. I have 3 children, Brianna - age 19, Devon - age 16 & Kayleigh - age 11. I wish they could have grown up when I did. It seems it is more difficult for kids now. There's so much negative stuff for them out there. As much as I love the internet (making new friends, traveling to far off places without leaving home, etc) I think I had a better childhood because of not having it as part of my life. I originally went to college for journalism and dropped out because it wasn't for me. I am not one who is able to always be objective and I don't like the way you have to invade other people's privacy for the sake of a story. I went back to school in for Community/Human Services and now I work as Medicaid eligibility examiner at the Department of Social Services. I like bird watching (raptors) & before I was working full-time I would volunteer with DEC to monitor bald eagles so they could time when to band the eaglets in the Spring. I would accompany them for the local bandings which was always a thrill for me. My other hobby is weather, a real "weather-weenie" as my friends like to call me. I'm a meteorologist-wannabe who was to frightened of physics and math to pursue it as a career. I like to bowl, go fishing and am a pop-culture junkie. I have been told I have a wealth of useless information and take it as a total compliment. I stumbled upon YRT from doing a search for 70s pop culture sites and have been visiting here daily ever since. I love the way a post will prompt my memory of something else and it goes on and on. The people on this site are very welcoming and it feels like "home" on the net. Thank you Steve for the wonderful site and to all of you who help me "go back in time" every day.

Terry Fox Marathon of Hope 1980 Terry Fox was arguably the most heroic figure in Canadian history. On April 12, 1980, the 21-year-old Fox, who had lost his right leg to cancer three years earlier, began a mind-boggling cross-Canada run from Newfoundland to British Columbia with the aid of a prosthesis to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society. For the next four months Fox averaged 25 miles per day as Canada became captivated by his exploits. Unfortunately, Fox had to abandon his 'Marathon of Hope' near Thunder Bay, Ontario on September 1 because the cancer had resurfaced in his lungs. Fox had run 3,339 miles! He died nine months later. This nine-minute feature was produced by ESPN in 2005.

2002 Breeders Cup Betting Scandal On October 26, 2002, Christopher Harn and two buddies masterminded one of the most talked about betting scandals ever. The annual Breeders Cup races are often called the Super Bowl of horse racing. Six races are run. The popular Pick Six wager requires a bettor to select the winners of all six races prior to the first race being run. The payoff can be enormous if anyone achieves the feat. As an employee of the computer company that handled off-track betting, Harn used his technical know-how to attempt to beat the system. On Breeders Cup day he placed a routine bet using a friend's off-track account. Then, after four races had been run, Harn took advantage of his knowledge of when the results were transmitted. Harn went to his office and altered his friend's original bet to give him the first four winners of the Pick Six. Then he 'boxed' the last two races, ensuring a winning ticket regardless of which horses happened to win the last two races. The payoff was an astounding $3 million. Unfortunately for Harn, the payoff was too rich for his own good. The bet was immediately flagged as suspicious because of the odd betting sequence and because too many longshots had won that day. Eventually investigators pried a confession out of Harn and his co-conspirators. They were convicted of fraud.

Kenny Nolan I Like Dreamin A good Valentines Day musical selection from 1977: Kenny Nolan sings I Like Dreamin'. It's always been a favorite of mine. (Somebody put a great deal of effort into putting the music and the fantastic art montage together!)

Farrah Fawcett Update I was sad to learn that things are not looking to good about Farrah's health. Long time partner Ryan O'Neill. Ryan tells People Magazine "The treatment has pretty much ended," that the cancer has pretty much spread throughout her body and "She stays in bed now," O'Neal said. "The doctors see that she is comfortable. Farrah is on IVs, but some of that is for nourishment." Farrah also lost her all of her golden hair. While O'Neal is trying to stay hopeful, he is also dealing with the possibility of living without Fawcett. O'Neal's candid interview comes just as Fawcett prepares to talk about her illness in "Farrah's Story." The two-hour documentary, shot by Fawcett and good friend Alana Stewart, airs next Friday, May 15. "It was never meant to be a documentary," said Stewart. "Farrah just took her little hand-held camera to the doctor one day."

Tighten Up LIVE - Archie Bell and the Drells Tighten Up LIVE - 1967 Tighten Up by Archie Bell was recorded during the time when Bell was drafted into the Army to serve in Vietnam. While on a short leave, he recorded the single "Tighten It Up" with musical backing by The TSU Tornadoes. Issued in December 1967, "Tighten It Up" became a huge hit in Houston and was picked up for distribution by New York-based Atlantic Records. "Tighten Up," written by Bell and Billy Butler sold more than three million copies, holding both the #1 R&B and the #1 Pop spot for two weeks on Billboard's charts in spring 1968. The Tighten Up LP hit #15 R&B and #142 Pop in summer 1968. Unfortunately, Bell was stationed in Germany while all of this was happening.
