FEATURED WEB SITE  

   Think you have trouble spelling "Sacagawea"?  This week's featured 
   web page is from the official Lewis and Clark Expedition web site. 
   It gives some historical background on the subject of the new U.S. 
   dollar coin, and the woman's name, which is found spelled at least 
   fourteen different ways in the explorers' original manuscript journals. 
   "Although their flair for inspired spelling created some interesting 
   variations, in every instance, including three additional spellings on 
   Clark’s maps, all three of the journalists who attempted to write it 
   were consistent in the use of a "g" in the third syllable."
