Jersey divorce records are heading for the Internet
by Robert Schwaneberg
The court file in a typical divorce case is a gold mine of information, much
of it very personal, some of it embarrassing.
If the case has gone on for any time, the record is likely to contain a
wealth of financial information. Depending on the level of hostility between
the parting spouses, there may be unproved allegations of betrayal, sexual
peccadilloes or worse.
"I tell my students: If you get somebody's divorce records, that person's
life is open to you," said Ron Miskoff, an adjunct professor of journalism
at Rutgers University in New Brunswick.

Historical museum's oldest wing closes for upgrades
by Colleen Jenkins
GREENSBORO -- The Greensboro Historical Museum's air conditioning and
heating system soon will be history.
The old wing of the museum, built in stages during 1892, 1903 and the late
1930s, closed Aug. 1 for at least the next six months while the air
conditioning and heating equipment are renovated. That leaves only the
Summit Avenue buildings's newest wing, built in 1990, and the historical
buildings in the park adjacent to the museum open to the public.
"I've been very reluctant to close it all," said Bill Moore, director of the
museum. "I didn't want to lose momentum with the public. But it was really a

Businesses love e-signatures, but consumers need more protection
by Tom Woodruff
If you ask brokerages, banks, mutual fund companies and the like what they
think about electronic signatures, they'll say they're all for 'em.
E-signatures will save time, drastically cut down paperwork and reduce paper
consumption. In short, they'll be great for business.
BUT WHILE BUSINESS embraces the new world of commerce driven by paperless
signatures, consumer groups are still fearful that e-signatures will
generate sizeable fraud problems. Many do, however, recommend steps to
protect yourself, including taking advantage of a provision in the new law
that lets you simply decline to use an e-signature.

Chicago man's pictures document civil rights march
Pastor emeritus walked shoulder to shoulder with Martin Luther King
by Janis Shumac Wilder
Some 35 years ago today, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law the
Voting Rights Act allowing African-Americans living in the South to vote.
Months prior to the signing, members and supporters of the Southern
Christian Leadership Conference, led by the late Martin Luther King Jr.,
took to the streets in protest.
Hundreds of African-Americans marched from Selma, Ala., to the state's
capital in Montgomery to protest laws that prevented African-American
residents of Dallas County, Ala., from voting.
The Rev. Elmer Fowler, pastor emeritus of Third Baptist Church in Chicago's
Beverly community, was among those who walked with King.

Release of phone records has everybody talking
Ex-Fayette County official is linked to prostitution ring
UNIONTOWN (AP) -- The release of voluminous telephone records of calls into
an alleged Fayette County prostitution ring has increased the whispers and
gossip surrounding the case, an attorney said.
"I've never seen anything like it. It's all everybody is talking about. I
mean, this isn't a murder case or a federal building bombing," said Jack
Connor, attorney for former Fayette County Commissioner Susanne Teslovich,
Teslovich is charged with running a prostitution ring through First Class
Entertainment, an escort service purported to provide massages and
"sensational erotic entertainment."
Fayette County District Attorney Nancy Vernon last week made 365 pages of
phone logs, police reports and other documents part of the public record of
the case, saying that keeping them under wraps "would destroy public
confidence to the system as a whole."

Saving bits and bytes for history
As technology reinvents itself at ever-faster speeds, museums and collectors
are rescuing superstar computers abandoned after their moment of glory.
by Ashley Dunn
On a muggy autumn morning in 1985, computer scientist John Lee and a small
band of researchers gathered on a farm in Virginia and began grubbing
through a heap of rusted refrigerators, stoves and ancient radios tossed
there decades ago by a scrap dealer.
Buried somewhere in this pile of junk lay pieces of the only Harvard Mark
III computer ever built--a house-sized machine festooned with flashing
lights and whirring tape reels that Time magazine put on its cover in 1950
as a "thinking machine" that could have "more effect on mankind than atomic
Lee and his comrades uncovered their first piece in moments--an aluminum arm
with a dime-sized slug of steel that was used to read a Mark III memory
