Aria Found in Cards from 1700s
BERLIN -- A previously unknown work by Johann Sebastian Bach has
been discovered in a crate of 18th century birthday cards removed
from a German library shortly before it was gutted by fire. Experts
say the aria for soprano and string or keyboard accompaniment composed
for a German duke's birthday is the first new music from the renowned
composer to surface in three decades.

may have painted path to missing da Vinci
ROME -- "Cerca trova" seek and you shall find
says a tantalizing 500-year-old message painted on a fresco in the
council hall of Florence's Palazzo Vecchio. Researchers now think
these cryptic words could be a clue to the location of a long-lost
Leonardo da Vinci painting and are pressing local authorities to
allow them to search for the masterpiece of Renaissance art. Maurizio
Seracini, an Italian art researcher, first noticed the message during
a survey of the hall 30 years ago, but his team lacked the technology
then to see what lay behind Giorgio Vasari's 16th-century fresco,
Battle of Marciano in the Chiana Valley.

splits 3-2 on arts group deal
ISLAMORADA, FL -- The amphitheater at Founders Park in Islamorada
got a new lease on life Thursday, as Islamorada Village Council
members agreed to a pact with a local arts group. The council approved
a contract with Islamorada Community Entertainment on a 3-2 vote.
Under the agreement, ICE members would raise $250,000 toward completing
the partially finished project. Islamorada would contribute another
$104,000, plus previously pledged money from the Tourist Development
Council, TIB Bank of the Keys and the Islamorada Friends of the
Arts. ICE volunteers then would manage and book the outdoor performance
venue for 90 days a year. The council can schedule events at the
amphitheater on 270 days a year, which include major holidays and
special events. ICE would cover production costs, but Islamorada
would pay routine maintenance, utilities and insurance for the amphitheater.
