Copeland, 84, lived for adventure, challenge
"He spent most of his childhood picking cotton on his family farm, but after the Depression, Copeland's family lost almost everything.

But that visit ended tragically Thursday morning when Uber, a 55-year old mother of four, was killed by a rampaging elephant while visiting a wildlife park with her husband and daughter.
Uber, of Point Breeze, suffered internal injuries when she was knocked down by the elephant, which suddenly charged at the group from a distance of about 40 feet, said Ned Uber."

"It's like a rock concert for 2-year-olds," says Klein of "Barney's Colorful World," which rolls into the Sovereign Bank Arena in Trenton today for a three-day stay.
