Briefs: Jesse James Rides Again


Hollywood offers a new spin on the legend of Jesse James with "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford," starring Brad Pitt as James. If the movie, which opened Friday, sparks your interest in the famous outlaw, there are plenty of places in Missouri where you can learn more about his life, his gang and the era in which they lived.

In the countryside just outside Kearney, you can visit the James family home, where his mother, Zerelda, began giving tours not long after he was assassinated in 1882. Today it's known as the Jesse James Farm and Museum. Ten miles away, in Liberty, you can visit the Jesse James Bank Museum, where a bank robbery was carried out by James' gang in 1866. The museum is designed to look like the bank looked the day of the crime. And in St. Joseph, you'll find the house where James was killed, and the courthouse where two men were tried for his murder.

Cedar Point scares up HalloWeekends

Haunted houses, four spooky outdoor walk-through attractions, shows, and a new parade are all part of the Halloween celebration at Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky, Ohio. The newest addition to the fearful fun is the Monster Midway Invasion Celebration Parade, in which more than 70 characters, six floats, a hearse, gypsies, a giant spider, and a coffin roadster entertain park guests beginning at 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. The parade is designed to be fun for the family, so you don't have to worry about scaring your little ones.

The park's HalloWeekends events will run through Oct. 28. Hours are 6 p.m.-midnight Fridays, noon-midnight Saturdays and 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Sundays (until 10 p.m. Oct. 7). Some rides will be closed Friday nights, and the outdoor attractions will be closed on Sundays except for Oct. 7.

Grand Central spa

Grand Central isn't exactly known as a temple of tranquility and relaxation. But from Oct. 31-Nov. 3, when the Spa Experience comes to the landmark train station, busy commuters and visitors to the city will be able to chill out a little and sample a massage before running for the 5:17 train.
