Woman, 101, sets paraglide record
SALT LAKE CITY - A 101-year-old Utah woman who ushered in her birthday with a tandem paraglide ride last year soared into the record books Tuesday.
Mary Hardison, of Ogden, has been officially recognized as the "Oldest Female to Paraglide Tandem" by Guinness World Records. She has supplanted a 100-year-old woman from Cyprus who took her flight in 2007.
Hardison, a great-great-grandmother, flew with an instructor last Sept. 1 while four generations of her family watched and cheered. The flight went smoothly and even included a few tricks that Hardison encouraged.
Hardison said she wanted to paraglide because her 75-year-old son began doing it as a hobby. "I didn't want him to get too far ahead of me, so I decided that I'd go too," she said Tuesday.
Hardison previously rode all the adult rides at Disneyland to celebrate her 90th birthday. - AP

Just minutes after the commission meeting, which attracted an overflow crowd of supporters and opponents of the name change, airport receptionists began welcoming callers to the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport. - AP
