Former Dave Clark 5 singer Mike Smith has passed away.

His death at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, north of London, came just two weeks before the Dave Clark Five was due to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in New York.

The Dick Tracy Museum in Woodstock, Ill., is shutting down.

The museum guest book hasn't been signed in weeks. The shelves are lined with unsold Dick Tracy pens, yellow fedoras and coffee mugs. And on a recent February morning, a broken furnace kept museum director Jim Johnson shivering until closing time. Only a few visitors stopped by, one of them a repairman who got the heat turned back on.

With attendance plunging, museum officials have decided to close the 1,000-square-foot shrine to the comic-strip detective and his creator -- longtime Woodstock resident Chester Gould. The decision was difficult for Gould's daughter, Jean Gould O'Connell, who said her father's estate could not keep funding it. The doors will close in June.
