Grateful Dead exhibit extended in Cleveland

The Grateful Dead exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland has gotten a reprieve.

The exhibit opened in April and was scheduled to wrap up by year's end. Now, the rock hall says, the exhibit titled “The Long, Strange Trip” has been extended through March 24.

The exhibit features manuscripts, handwritten notes, five Jerry Garcia guitars, a custom-painted drum kit and promoter Bill Graham's “Father Time” robe.

Several members of the Grateful Dead have toured the exhibit and participated in related programs, including Mickey Hart, Donna Jean Godchaux, Tom Constanten and Bill Kreutzmann.

The rock hall says the Grateful Dead were at the epicenter of the sweeping culture of San Francisco in the 1960s.

Delta Air Lines hiring up to 400 flight attendants

Delta Air Lines is looking for up to 400 flight attendants, many of them for overseas flights for next summer.

Roughly one-third of the hires will be people who speak the language in some of the overseas cities where Delta flies. It's looking for speakers of Portuguese, Japanese, Mandarin and Hindi.

Delta says it has received 22,000 applications. CEO Richard Anderson says in a message to employees that Delta is getting two applications every minute.

Delta plans to begin interviewing applicants in January, with training beginning in the spring.

Starting two years ago, Delta added 1,000 flight attendants, including recalling 425 from furlough.

The hiring doesn't mean Delta is growing. It has said it will do the same amount of flying next year as it did in 2012.

The newest guide to where to go and what to do in North Carolina is available.

The North Carolina Division of Tourism, Film and Sports Development has unveiled “The Official 2013 North Carolina Travel Guide.”

Two covers help promote the guide, which lists more than 800 attractions, nearly 4,000 accommodations and travel resources in every county.

One cover features mountain kayaking in recognition of the Nantahala Gorge, site of the 2013 International Canoe Federation's World Freestyle Kayaking Championships.

Asheville's Grove Park Inn graces the other cover to mark its 100th anniversary.

The digital edition, available for Android and iOS, will switch between the two images.

Also, VisitNC.com is offering a chance to win a trip to Asheville and Bryson City with a Travel Guide Sweepstakes that runs through January.
