1877, Chief Crazy Horse of the Oglala Sioux Indian tribe surrenders to U.S. Troops in Nebraska. He lived a very interested life before meeting a questionable demise in a Nebraska while trying to imprison him. Read more about him here—> Chief Crazy Horse

1889, the Eiffel Tower is officially opened in Paris to the public, it was built as an entrance way to the 1889 World’s Fair. The Eiffel Tower is the most-visited paid monument in the world. I went there on a school trip in high school, I only went to the second level because the elevator wasn’t running, even from there the view was amazing.

1937, The German zeppelin Hindenberg catches fire and crashes in Lakehurst, New Jersey. The huge vessel was destroyed in one minute, 36 people died. I’ve attached a video of the event below.

1954, Roger Bannister became the first person to run the mile in under four minutes. Hicham El Guerrouj is the current men’s record holder with his time of 3:43.13.

1998, then 20 year-old Kerry Wood, of the Chicago Cubs, strikes out 20 batters in a nine inning game to tie Roger Clemens MLB record. Speaking of MLB, don’t forget to come see Doc Gooden, Jose Canseco, and more MLB legends at the Legends Night Super Show on this Thursday, May 8th at 6:30 pm at the Palace Theater.

Life Insurance



Is your family properly protected against your untimely death? It is not a pleasant subject but it is a necessary one to discuss. Everybody’s situation is different, people have different family types, mortgages, assets, income, or just different philosophies and preferences. In some cases life insurance can even be used as an investment vehicle. What my job is, and I do it well, is to sit down with each individual or family and work with them to figure out what’s in their best interest. Consultations are always FREE. Please give me a call, it would be my pleasure to sit down with and help you find a way, that fits in your budget, to give you the peace of mind of knowing your loved ones will be taken care of in the event of an untimely death. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you…Kurt (860)458-9366
