Benton gets busy

Second Beatle in Benton, Ill.
Tickets are being printed, a poster is in the works and a Web site has been created for the Oct. 4 Benton George Harrison Beatle Festival.
Committee members met Wednesday to continue plans to bring a second Beatle to Benton.
Committee chairman Jim Kirkpatrick said the news is certain to put Benton on the map.
“We have confirmation that Pete Best, an original member of The Silver Beatles, will perform that evening,” he said. “The Pete Best Band: Best of the Beatles will perform at 8 p.m. in the East Gym of Benton Consolidated High School. A visit from Pete Best follows another member of The Beatles. George Harrison visited his sister, Louise, in September 1963, before he was ‘fab.’ I even wrote a book about the visit.”
