Mr. Bendo-Sioux Falls, SD

http://www.roadsideamerica.com/tip/4196 Our own 'Mr. Bendo', has had a tough year in 2010. Long about St. Patty's Day, Mr. Bendo's leg was broken when a drunk driver drove into him. The townsfolks were happy to see Mr. Bendo back in commission over the summer.

Jazz guitarist Herb Ellis dead at 88.

Acclaimed jazz guitarist Herb Ellis is dead at the age of 88. Contrasted to B.B. King's grittier Delta blues, Ellis' style showed the more 'Happy & Bright' side of the 'Gibson', making for a nice, mellow listen-to. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TL9HPYu0NKs http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herb_Ellis
