Both men were charged for back taxes by the IRS in 1956, and both were forced to sell their homes and film rights to cover the debt. Paid for by Don & Carol Smidt.

• Bonnie Parker was just 19 years old and already married to an imprisoned murderer when she met 21-year-old Clyde Barrow in Texas. During the Great Depression, the outlaw couple reportedly was responsible for at least 12 bank robberies, countless smaller burglaries and 13 murders, including those of nine police officers. On the day their lives of crime came to an end in 1934, Bonnie and Clyde were driving a gray V-8 Ford, which was ambushed by the law in Louisiana. Officers fired a total of 167 bullets, killing the pair and halting a three-year spree. Over the next several years, carnival and fair goers viewed the Ford for 25 cents. The car was later purchased by Nevada’s Primm Valley Resort and Casino for $250,000 and can now be seen at the facility just outside Las Vegas.

FAMOUS DUOS (continued): • Meriwether Lewis was 29 years old and cocommander William Clark was 33 when they were commissioned by President Thomas Jefferson in 1803 to explore the Louisiana Purchase all the way to the Pacific coast. Lewis and Clark were both Virginia-born veterans of Ohio Valley Indian wars. Their expedition included more than 40 other men and their Shoshone guide Sacagawea as they wound their way up the Missouri River. Over a period of two years and four months, the group traveled over 8,000 miles (12,875 km), using a 55-foot-long (17-m) keelboat and two smaller boats, all the while making maps and studying the rocks, soil, plants and wildlife they encountered. After the expedition, Jefferson appointed Lewis Governor of the Louisiana Territory. At age 35, on a journey to deliver his journals to a Washington, D.C., publisher, Lewis died from multiple gunshot wounds, generally accepted as a suicide, although some believe he was the victim of an assassin. Clark served as Governor of the Missouri Territory and finally as Superintendent of Indian Affairs. • Barbie and Ken were the creations of Ruth Handler, wife of the Mattel toy company cofounder. Ruth named the couple after her own children, introducing Barbie in 1959 and Ken in 1961. Barbie (full name Barbie Roberts) has had more than 125 careers, including architect, astronaut, doctor and racecar driver. Ken Carson, who has had at least 40 occupations, first appeared with a molded plastic haircut with felt hair. In 2004, Mattel announced a breakup of our favorite couple, implying Ken’s reluctance to get married, but rekindled the romance in 2006 in conjunction with a makeover for Ken. Barbara Handler Segal is now a 70-year-old Los Angeles mother of two. Her brother Ken passed away at age 50 in 1994 of a brain tumor.

TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH By Paul G. Donohue, M.D.

Inner Ear Often Cause of Dizziness

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am 82 and in pretty good health except for a recent problem. During the day everything is fine, but when I lie down to go to sleep, the room starts to spin. It lasts about 10 seconds. Then if I turn my head to look at the clock, the dizziness returns. In the morning when I wake and turn my head again, the room spins. Do I have an inner-ear infection? How can this problem be fixed? -- J.C. ANSWER: Although I can't give you 100 percent assurance, I can say on solid ground that you have benign positional vertigo, BPH. Vertigo is dizziness. BPH is not an inner-ear infection. It comes on just as you have written, with a change in the position of the head -- lying down, turning to the side or looking up to a cupboard shelf. The attacks are brief but disrupting. Crystals normally found in one part of the inner ear have migrated to another part. Moving the head activates the displaced crystals, and they send a message to the brain that brings on dizziness. The inner ear is not only for hearing; it's also for balance. You can bring the crystals back to their original site through a series of movements called the Epley repositioning maneuvers. Sit on the side of a bed and bend your head to the shoulder on the side that triggers dizziness. Let's make it the right side, so you can follow the instructions. If it's the left, just change the direction. With the head turned to the right, lie down so your head projects off the other side of the bed. When dizziness stops, turn the head to the left side, with the left ear facing down. Next, roll over on your left side so the head faces down for 10 to 15 seconds. Finally, return to the sitting position with your head bent slightly down in front. You might have to repeat the procedure more than twice. If this is too confusing, have your family doctor or an ENT doctor put you through the motions. The booklet on vertigo explains the common causes of it and their treatment.

Down a Few Pegs

What a difference a year makes for Kurt Busch. A year ago he was driving a yellow Dodge from the legendary stable of Roger Penske and getting ready to win the Budweiser Shootout. Now he's stuck trying to make the best of it with the middling team of James Finch. Finch's Phoenix Racing has had its moments -- such as Brad Keselowski's upset victory at Talladega in 2009 -- but it's not a place Busch could possibly have planned to be. Busch's wounds, by his own admission, were self-inflicted, but they had nothing to do with his driving prowess, which is considerable. The Las Vegas native, whose career rivals his brother Kyle's in terms of both success and controversy, berated his crew chief and others via in-car radio. He had spats with writers. But what brought him down was an amateur video Kurt Busch is starting over with Phoenix of his profane and snarky confrontation with beloved ESPN Racing next season. At age 33, the older reporter Jerry Punch in the garage area of Homestead-Miami of the Busch brothers has plenty of time Speedway. to rebuild his racing career It went "viral" on YouTube, and Kurt Busch learned the (John Clark/NASCAR This Week photo) negative version of that particular cliche. Who would've believed that a talent as prodigious as Kurt Busch could be undermined mainly by words and not deeds? NASCAR is part of the sporting mainstream now, and with it comes unexpected consequences. Corporate image holds much more sway now than it did in, say, 1986, when the late Tim Richmond was in his prime. Nowadays a driver must not only be successful, but also marketable. Kurt Busch now says he has learned lessons he failed to learn earlier in his career. Corporate NASCAR's response? "Prove it." When Busch needed friends, he found he didn't have many. Now he has to start over from somewhere near square

one. He has to rebuild a career. At age 33, he still has plenty of time. If he can somehow lift Phoenix Racing's performance in a tangible way, it will impress his detractors, even if it doesn't convert them. Monte Dutton covers motorsports for The Gaston (N.C.) Gazette.

Color Cues

want to work that color into your palette, or at the very least, choose a complementary palette.

You recently got engaged, and the excitement is brewing. You can’t wait to start the wedding planning. One of the first decisions you’ll face is selecting a color palette. There are so many shades to choose from. How do you decide?

Location and season can also provide color cues. Check out the venues you have selected for the ceremony and the reception. Do any of the colors there appeal to you? If you are getting married in a gazebo surrounded by yellow tulips, perhaps a cream palette with accents of maize and gold would work well. Season can also make a difference. Winter colors differ dramatically from summer colors. Maroon and silver might serve a November wedding well, but not a May wedding.

By Tresa Erickson

While some brides have no trouble selecting a color palette, others struggle with it. The good news is that there are many facets from which you may take your color cues, starting with your color faves. What colors are you drawn to? Gold? Orange? Red? If you love red and can’t picture yourself getting married without it, then you have already won half the battle. All you need to do now is select one or two more colors, and you will have your palette. If the red is rather intense, you might opt for some neutrals like white, silver, black or gray. Don’t have a favorite color? No problem. Look to your choices in apparel for your color cues. Start shopping for bridesmaid dresses, and once you select a style and color, take your cues from it. If the dresses are purple, you’ll want to make sure you work in some shade of purple into your palette. The same goes with the tuxes. If the groom has chosen gray tuxes, then you’ll want to make sure gray is either part of your palette or goes well with it. Flowers also provide important color cues. What flowers are in season and what are you hoping to incorporate into your wedding? If you have your eye on a lot of pale pink blooms, then you will definitely

Still having trouble selecting a color palette? Consider current trends. A couple rounds of shopping should clue you in to these. Check out any supplies you might already have on hand, such as some tablecloths you borrowed from a friend who just got married. Think about all of the items you have selected thus far from the wedding dress to the wedding cake. If you’ve got a lot of ivory and cream going on, you might want to select a color that pops. Keep in mind that just because you select a color palette early on doesn’t mean it will work. Be willing to make some changes the deeper you get into the planning. That pale green you chose for your accent color might turn into forest green once you select the invitations. Light green lettering doesn’t show up nearly as well on crisp, white paper as dark green does. Whether you choose the color palette or let it choose you, be open to change. You never know. That burgundy you’re hoping for might serve your April wedding better as fuschia.
