Two California cities make National Trust's top 12 U.S. destinations - latimes.com
Two California towns have earned a place on the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s list of top heritage destinations for 2011. The nonprofit organization each year selects a Dozen Distinctive Destinations that "boast a richness of character and exude an authentic sense of place," according to a statement released Tuesday. The coastal town of Eureka on Humboldt Bay was singled out for its Victorian homes and nearby old-growth redwood forests. Sonoma too was recognized for the town's wine-country roots that reach into the early 19th century. Many Californians, who likely already know these tourist spots, might consider revisiting, with a focus on their architectural and cultural qualities. Other destinations that made the 2011 list include Alexandria, Va.; Chapel Hill, N.C.; Colorado Springs, Colo.; Dandridge, Tenn.; Muskogee, Okla.; New Bedford, Mass.; Paducah, Ky.; San Angelo, Texas; St. Paul, Minn.; and Sheridan, Wyo.

Confessions of a coonskin cap kid: R.I.P. Davy Crockett aka Fess Parker, 1924-2010 | Top of the Ticket | Los Angeles Times
The problem for many of us is that we cannot separate Davy and Fess or vice versa. The link to politics here is that Davy actually served time in Congress, 1826-1835, back before the U.S. House of Representatives consisted of two partisan herds. Davy didn't like Jackson's Indian Removal Act of 1830, which was basically a land grab that resulted in the forcible eviction of tens of thousands of Indians from Southern and Eastern lands and their removal to the West. Davy didn't rightly see that as fair, seeing as how the Indians were there first and thought they had a bargain with the U.S. government and all. For his outspoken opposition to the White House Davy was defeated in 1834 and stormed off to Texas to join its Revolution. He died at the Alamo, either swinging an empty Old Betsy at Mexican troops or, according to another version, while enduring later torture. Eighty-eight years later Fess was born in the then-state of Texas and grew up in San Angelo, only 200 miles from the Alamo.
