BEAUFORT, N.C. (AP) - A former presidential yacht dating to the 1930s is stopping in North Carolina to go on display.
The Friends of the North Carolina Maritime Museum in Beaufort is scheduled to host dockside tours of the Honey Fitz on Saturday. Proceeds from the tours benefit the Friends of the Museum.
The 92-foot Honey Fitz was christened in 1931, passed from private hands to the U.S. Coast Guard in 1942. It saw service during World War II. President Dwight Eisenhower renamed it the Barbara Anne.
When John F. Kennedy took office in 1961, he renamed the presidential yacht Honey Fitz. It was the nickname of his maternal grandfather. It was sold during the Nixon administration and has been in private hands ever since.
KINGSTON, N.H. (AP) - A memorial service is planned in New Hampshire for the mother of the gunman who killed 20 students and six educators at a Connecticut elementary school before turning the gun on himself.
Adam Lanza shot his mother to death at their home just before his December rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.
The police chief in Kingston, N.H., where Nancy Lanza once lived, says a memorial service is planned for her Saturday at First Congregational Church. He says only friends and family are invited.
A private funeral for Lanza was held in town less than a week after the Dec. 14 shootings.

Five people died during the storm, which struck the Oklahoma City area during rush hour, trapping many people in their cars along Interstate 40.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - An exhibit of drawings of fallen Illinois soldiers on display in Springfield has been extended for another month.
The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum announced Friday the "Portrait of a Soldier" exhibit will remain open until after July 4. The display originally was scheduled to close Friday.
The new closing date will give more visitors a chance to see the traveling display of hand-drawn portraits of Illinois soldiers killed since Sept. 11, 2001.
Artist Cameron Schilling of Mattoon has drawn all the portraits. He began drawing them in August 2004.
Gov. Pat Quinn says the exhibit honors Illinois heroes. The free exhibit is at the library portion of the museum campus.
