  2. Does anyone have an IRA with Wells Fargo? If so, are you able to get electronic statements? I'm being told by Wells Fargo that they have to send me paper statements via snail mail, and that getting an electronic statement via email isn't an option. They claim a hard copy sitting in my mail box is more secure???
  3. Most Americans can name at least one of the Mercury 7 astronauts who were the first to fly into outer space, but what about the women who were considered for this endeavor? Wally Funk had “the right stuff” but was denied the possibility of traveling into outer space because of her gender. In the early 60s, 13 women endured secret tests to determine if they could become astronauts. The Mercury 13, as they are now known, underwent and passed the same rigorous mental and physical tests as the men of Mercury 7. Featured on the BBC, NPR and Netflix, Ms. Funk is in high demand as a speaker. An aviator for over 63 years and a member of the Mercury 13, she will share her story 3:00 p.m. Saturday, June 29, at the Allen Public Library. Women lobbied the White House and Congress for inclusion of women in the astronaut program, even appearing before a congressional committee. The highly respected playwright Clare Booth Luce wrote an article for LIFE magazine publicizing the Mercury 13 women and criticizing NASA. Ms. Funk will reveal the “excuses” given as to why women could not be selected. As a result of this bias, the Soviet Union beat America in 1963 with the first woman in space, Valentina Tereshkova. This could easily have been Wally. Sponsored by the Allen Public Library, the program is free. The library is located at 300 N. Allen Dr. Call 214-509-4911 for additional information.
  4. Texas has 254 counties and each county courthouse has a unique history. Come take a guided tour through the courthouses of Texas from the comfort of the Allen Public Library’s auditorium at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, June 27. Allen residents John and Anne Gifford will share their experiences and photos taken on their journey to visit all of the Texas courthouses. From the majestic edifices of Bexar, Comal, Caldwell, Dallas and Tarrant counties to modern construction, each courthouse has a story to tell, such as: Hudspeth County contains the only courthouse with an adobe exterior. When asked about their favorite courthouse, their response was unanimous—Caldwell County because of its beauty, see photograph. Anne and John are members of the Allen Heritage Guild. A retired schoolteacher, Anne is a board member of the Texas Lakes Trail and assists the Collin County Historical Society with grant writing. Sponsored by the Allen Public Library, the program is free. The library is located at 300 N. Allen Drive. Call 214.509.4911.

For a special treat, Michele Guess and Marcela Mercer, granddaughters of the famed vocalist and actor Smith Ballew will introduce the concert. Smith Ballew recorded the song As Time Goes By for The Columbians Dance Orchestra in 1931. The song achieved legendary status when Sam (Dooley Wilson) performed it for the classic film Casa Blanca.

The Singapore Slingers has performed at the Sons of Hermann Hall, Kessler Theatre, Pocket Sandwich Theatre and a host of festivals throughout the nation.
