  • James Arness of 'Gunsmoke' fame dead at 88--video extra

    It takes a special kind of lawman to carry on for 20 years in the Wild West of TV.

    Matt Dillon, the mythical marshal of Dodge City, stood tall — all 6 feet, 6 inches of him — on "Gunsmoke" from 1955 to 1975. He outlasted dozens of other Western heroes while making history on TV's longest-running dramatic series, a record that held until NBC's "Law & Order" tied the CBS Western's record in 2010.

    Through all those gunslinging years, James Arness, who died Friday, kept Marshal Dillon righteous, peace-seeking and, most of all, believable.

  • Founder of Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta dies at 77

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Sid Cutter, who founded the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta almost 40 years ago that has turned into one of the city's signature events, died Saturday. He was 77.

    Officials with the Balloon Fiesta said Cutter died in his sleep after a long battle with stomach cancer.

    The Albuquerque-born Cutter is credited with organizing the first Balloon Fiesta in 1972.
