A pioneering aviation enthusiast who helped found two early aircraft industry companies and a technical training school has died in her Pasadena home. Blanche Wilbur Hill, an Idaho-born philanthropist and socialite who obtained her pilot's license in 1931, when few women had even been in an airplane, was 85. She was first married to George Randolph Hearst, the eldest son of publishing tycoon William Randolph Hearst, and later married Cortland Taylor Hill, grandson of railroad magnate James J.

IT really was a dark and stormy night. On March 1, 1910, after six days of ceaseless snow up in Stevens Pass in the craggy Cascade Mountains, warmer temperatures brought in the rain. And the preternatural winter lightning. And the rumbling thunder. Off to the side of the main Great Northern Railway tracks, perched above a steep canyon and below a sparsely wooded, snowpacked mountainside, rested two trains -- the Seattle Express and the Fast Mail.

Bicyclists complain about hills but secretly admire them. The steepest are probably called grades for a reason: They offer a test of ability and will. Fortunately, passing marks are given for style as well as speed. And style, in the case of a difficult 10-mile climb such as Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park, means reaching the Continental Divide at 6,664 feet above sea level without surreptitiously hanging onto the tailpipe of a passing Albertan's camper.

As Republicans prepare to gather here a week from today to nominate you as their presidential candidate, allow me to draw upon nearly five full days of boots-on-the-ground experience to offer a few Twin Cities visitor tips. The natives are known as St. Paulites and Minneapolitans.
