Katharine Lee Bates, you’ve certainly Page 5sung it. While visiting Colorado’s Pikes Peak in 1893, the 34-year-old professor of English at Wellesley College was so moved by the view, she wrote a poem entitled “America,” which was published two years later. A church organist and choirmaster, Samuel A. Ward, composed the music, and in 1910, it was released as “America the Beautiful.” • The words to another patriotic song were penned by an August baby, Francis Scott Key. During the War of 1812, as British troops invaded Washington, D.C., Key, the city’s 35-year-old district attorney, stood watching the attack on Fort McHenry in the midst of the Battle of Baltimore. After the smoke from the bombarding cleared, the American flag could be seen waving above the fort. On his way back to Baltimore after the battle, he began writing a poem on the back of a letter, words which would later become “The Star-Spangled Banner.” • Terry Gene Bollea gained fame using the stage name Hulk Hogan. We know him as the star of the World Wrestling Federation, but baseball was his first love. As a high school student, he was considered the best pitcher in the Florida school system, and was being considered for the pros. He majored in business management in college, then, prior to entering the ring, spent 10 years as a professional guitarist in several BABIES (continued): bandsAUGUST and as a studio musician.

• Film director M. Night Shyamalan was born Manoj Nelliyattu Shyamalan in India but was raised in a wealthy Philadelphia suburb and educated at a private Episcopal Academy. He was born to a physician father and a physician mother, and his wife is also a doctor, as are nine other family members who are either MDs or Ph.Ds. Noted for movies with a strange twist at the end, he makes a cameo appearance in each film. He cites “Raiders of the Lost Ark” as his own favorite film. • Melinda French Gates met her future husband while employed by his company, Microsoft. She had earned degrees in computer science and economics from Duke University before going to work at Microsoft, where she participated in developing some of their most celebrated products, Publisher, Encarta and Expedia. Bill and Melinda Gates met in Manhattan at a Microsoft press event. She left her job behind to raise their family. • There was much more to Jimmy Dean than pork sausage. After serving in the U.S. Air Force in the late 1940s, he became a country singer, moving into variety show television in 1957. He frequently sat in as substitute host of “The Tonight Show.” He moved to acting in the mid1960s and appeared in the James Bond film, “Diamonds Are Forever.” He and his brother started up the sausage company in 1969, with Dean appearing in the TV commercials. They sold to the Sara Lee Corporation in the ‘80s, but Dean continued in the ads until the corporation dismissed him in 2004, claiming that the 76 year old was too old for the job. When he died in 2010, he was buried in a 9.5-foot-long (2.7-meter), piano-shaped granite mausoleum (a $350,000 item) on his estate on the banks of the James River.

P D ! Is it really better to use plastic bags instead of paper at grocery stores? Not really. The monetary cost may be less, but the environment suffers when so many plastic bags get loose. Most of us have seen plastic bags flying in the wind, ending up on fences or in trees, littering otherwise attractive natural surroundings. One alternative is to use cloth bags.
