MOORHEAD — Florence Klingensmith was a woman ahead of — actually, above — her time. The female aviator, called an aviatrix in the late 1920s and early '30s, grew up just north of Moorhead and started her flying career with the Fargo Aeronautics Club. She gained national fame as a stuntwoman-turned-aviator whose daring tendencies were matched by her boundless ambition. Nearly 85 years ago, Klingensmith earned acclaim as the first woman to participate in an air race against men, flying at top speed around pylons in Chicago during Labor Day weekend air races.

Across the country, people will don green clothing today and make plans to imbibe some green beer or feast on bangers and mash (or, mistakenly, Lucky Charms) to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Parades commemorating the day will take place in 30 countries, including a weeklong festival on the Caribbean island of Montserrat. The island of more than 5,000 people will celebrate its Irish heritage as well as an unsuccessful slave uprising that had been planned for March 17, 1768.
