Today in History
Today is Tuesday, Jan. 13, the 13th day of 2009. There are 352 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History: On Jan. 13, 1794, President George Washington approved a measure adding two stars and two stripes to the American flag, following the admission of Vermont and Kentucky to the union.

Ten years ago: President Bill Clinton's legal team dispatched a formal trial brief to the Senate, arguing that neither "fact or law" warranted his removal from office; House officials sent the Senate all public evidence in the case.

Watercooler Talk
TINLEY PARK, Ill. (AP) - A suburban Chicago couple really believes it's never too late for love. Dorothy Taylor, 84, and Duane Williams, 82, were married Saturday at a Tinley Park independent living center after what family members describe as a "whirlwind" courtship.

The octogenarians have been friends and bridge partners for about a year, but the romance started to bloom around Christmas, according to 84-year-old best man Walter Urbanik.

That was when Williams got the nerve to kiss Taylor. The two decided to marry within the week.
News of the engagement came as a pleasant surprise to family.

"The courtship was very whirlwind and very unexpected," said Debbie Laneve, one of Taylor's five children. "But we're very happy for her."
