SUPER BOWL SUPERFAN
WINFIELD, Pa. (AP) -- Super Bowl 49 will be the 49th for superfan Tom Henschel. Yes, he's been to every Super Bowl, starting with the first one in 1967 at the Los Angeles Coliseum. He plans to be at the University of Phoenix Stadium for Sunday's big game between the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots. The Pennsylvania man is one of just three people to have seen every Super Bowl. But the big game wasn't always such a big deal. Henschel tells the Valley News Dispatch there were only 30,000 fans in the stadium for Super Bowl 1. The 73-year-old says he plans to party like a 20-year-old in Phoenix this weekend.
HAMILTON, Mont. (AP) -- It was a citizens' arrest with the handyman's best friend -- duct tape. Authorities report a Montana man was taped-up by fellow bar patrons, after they say he tried to hit a bartender. Jeremy A. Estep was busted in front of the Rustic Hut in Florence, Montana. According to court records, Estep was kicked out of the place. Witnesses say he returned, began arguing with the bartender and tried hitting him with a glass. A female bartender told officers she grabbed his arm and other customers took him to the ground and duct-taped his wrists. The Ravalli Republic reports Estep now faces a number of charges, including felony assault.
RITA'S ITALIAN ICE-MIDDLE EAST
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- It's a cool dessert for the hot desert. Rita's Italian Ice is coming to the Middle East. The Pennsylvania-based chain say it's signed a deal to open nearly 50 stores in Turkey, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and five other Arab nations. Rita's contractor (Faysal Younes) says the region's climate makes it a natural for the sweet, frozen treats. The Mideast expansion is to take place over the next decade.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- There's something new to see and hear at the National Museum of American History. The Washington museum is hosting an exhibit called "Hear My Voice," focusing on early sound recording. The exhibit includes some of the earliest audio recordings made by Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone. New technology makes it possible to scan the groves in the wax discs made in the 1880s. The exhibit runs through October.
