• Mary Queen of Scots is reportedly the one who brought the word “caddy” to the game. She used French cadets to assist her on the course. “Cadet” is the French word for “student,” pronounced “cad-DAY”, giving us our modern term. • Early golf balls were created from hard leather, but around 1724, the composition was changed to a thin leather stuffed with feathers. These remained popular until 1848 when the gutta percha ball was introduced, a solid ball made from the dried sap of a Sapodilla tree. Strips of the sap were softened in boiling water, then molded by hand, and placed in cold water to harden. In 1901, the Haskell golf ball made its debut, a rubber-cored ball that traveled farther than the gutta percha ball, with the added benefit of a much cheaper cost to produce. The dimples in today’s golf balls decrease aerodynamic drag, allowing the ball to fly farther. A smooth golf ball would travel about half as far as a dimpled one. A golf ball has between 300 and 500 dimples, each about 0.010 inch deep. • What is recognized as the world’s first organized golf club was founded in 1744. Established as the Gentlemen Golfers of Leith, the group would later become known as the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers, a group that was responsible for drawing up the first set of official rules for the game. • Golf came to the U.S. via two Scotsmen, who first demonstrated the game in 1888, and set up a golf club that same year in Yonkers, New York. The U.S. PGA was formed in 1916, with the first PGA tournament held that year.

• The world’s oldest golf tournament is The Open Championship, better known as the British Open. It was first played in 1860 at Scotland’s Prestwick Golf Club, and played there until 1870. The Open is always played in Scotland, England, or Northern Ireland. The Open is one of the four major championships in men’s pro golf. The other three – The Masters, The U.S. Open, and PGA Championship – are all played in the United States. All four championships together are called the Grand Slam.

• Although the Grand Slam has never been accomplished in a single year, five golfers have won all four during their career. At age 32, Gene Sarazen captured his final Grand Slam tournament in 1935, followed by 40-year-old Ben Hogan in 1953. Gary Player was 29 when he wrapped up the Grand Slam in 1965. Jack Nicklaus has won three Grand Slams, the first at age 26 in 1966. Tiger Woods came close to winning the four tournaments in one year, but finished his first Slam over two years at age 24. Tiger has since won two more Slams, and holds the record as the youngest golfer to complete the feat. • Since its inception in 1934, The Masters has been played at Augusta, Georgia’s National Golf Club, and is the only major tournament that is played at the same course every year. During World War II, the course was closed for three years, and used to raise cattle and turkeys in support of the war effort. • Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida’s Sawgrass Stadium Course is the permanent home of the PGA Tour’s The Players Championship. About 125,000 golf balls are hit into the water every year on the courses’s famous 17th “island” hole. ...continued

• On Aug. 1, 1498, Italian explorer Christopher Columbus sets foot on the South American mainland for the first time, at the Paria Peninsula in present-day Venezuela. Thinking it an island, he christened it Isla Santa and claimed it for Spain. Columbus, a deeply religious man, believed that Venezuela was the edge of the Garden of Eden. • On Aug. 4, 1927, the Father of Country Music, Jimmie Rodgers, is recorded for the first time during the legendary Bristol Sessions. A talent scout had set up a makeshift recording studio in an empty warehouse in Bristol, Tennessee, and recorded numerous then-unknown acts during the 12-day marathon. • On Aug. 2, 1943, future President John F. Kennedy is serving as commander of a torpedo boat in the Solomon Islands when his ship is rammed at night by a Japanese destroyer, cutting it in two. Kennedy's heroics led to the rescue of the survivors from an island six days later. • On July 30, 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson signs Medicare, a health insurance program for elderly Americans, into law. Former President Harry Truman was enrolled as the first beneficiary and received the first Medicare card. • On Aug. 5, 1957, "American Bandstand" goes national on television, hosted by 26-year-old Dick Clark. He pushed hard for a 3:30 p.m. time slot, when teenagers were out of school and most likely to watch. • On Aug. 3, 1988, Soviet authorities free Mathias Rust, the daring young West German pilot who landed a rented Cessna on MoscowÕs Red Square in 1987, from a labor camp as a goodwill gesture to the West. • On July 31, 1990, Nolan Ryan wins the 300th game of his career. A believer that pitching power, as well as consistency and endurance, comes from the legs, not the arms, Ryan ran every day. © 2018 Hearst Communications, Inc. All Rights Reserved

• How well do you know golfing terms? Most folks know that each hole is classified by its par, which means the number of strokes a golfer should require to complete the hole. The minimum par is three – a stroke from the tee and two putts. One stroke under par is called a birdie, while two strokes under par is an eagle. Three strokes under par can be a double eagle or an albatross. The term condor refers to four strokes under par, an almost-impossible score to achieve. Only four condors have been recorded, all of which were a hole-in-one on a par-5 hole. Golfers who go over par might record a bogey (one stroke over), a double bogey (two strokes over), or a triple bogey (three strokes). • American golfer Ab Smith had an excellent shot back in 1899, and he described it as a “bird of a shot,” giving golfers the term “birdie,” one under par.

• When a golfer sinks the ball into the cup on the first stroke from the tee, it’s a hole-in- one, also called an ace. The casual golfer’s odds of making a hole in one are about 12,500 to one, but change considerably for a golf pro to 2,500 to 1. Those who hope to make two holes in one during a single round are looking at odds of about 67,000,000 to 1. • Golf shots have various names, depending on how far the ball needs to be moved. The “drive” or “full swing” is the initial shot on a hole when the ball is to be moved a long distance, and typically shot with a long-shafted, large-headed wood club known as a driver. For medium distances, the “approach” or “3/4 swing” is used. Golfers use the “chip” or “half-swing” for relatively short distances near the green. Once the ball reaches the green, the golfer “putts” the ball into the hole.

WEST NILE VIRUS RISK INCREASES JULY THRU SEPTEMBER Most human West Nile virus cases in North Dakota occur from late July to mid-September. People infected with this disease typically develop syptoms between 2 and 14 days after the infected mosquito bites them. Protect yourself from mosquito bites and West Nile virus. North Dakota - West Nile Virus Cases By Date 2002 - 2017

Number of Cases

Highest risk in August

Weekly Data 2002 - 2017 Total Human Cases in ND - 1,704

West Nile Virus Symptoms: • Most people (70-80%) infected with West Nile virus will not develop any symptoms, or the symptoms may be so mild that they won’t seek medical care. • About 20% of the people infected will have a fever with other flu-like symptoms such as headache, body aches, joint pains, vomiting, diarrhea, or rash. Most of the people with this type of WNV will have a complete recovery, but fatigue and weakness may last for weeks or months. • Less than 1% of the people infected will develop the more severe neurological form of this illness. The symptoms of neurologic illness can include headache, high fever, neck stiffness, disorientation, coma, tremors, seazures, or paralysis. • Serious illness may occur in people of any age but people over 60 have the greatest risk for the severe form of this illness. People with certain medical conditions, such as cancer, diabetes, hypertension, kidney disease, and people who have received organ transplants are also at a greater risk of getting the severe form of this disease. • Recovery from the severe form of this disease may take several weeks or months and some of the neurologic effects may be permanent. This disease is fatal for about 10% of the people who develop neurologic infection. For information about West Nile virus and mosquito control visit our website at www.gfmosquito.com

• You probably won't be surprised to learn that it was Albert Einstein who made the following sage observation: "A clever person solves a problem. A wise person avoids it." • Ever wonder why blue jeans are blue? When they were first designed by Levi Strauss, the people most likely to wear them were those who did a great deal of manual labor. Strauss rightly assumed the work was likely to be dirty, so he dyed his new trousers indigo to help hide stains. • Statistics on sporting events show that 17 of the 20 sporting events with the most attendees every year are NASCAR races. • Before horror author Stephen King became famous for novels such as "Carrie," "The Stand" and "The Shining," he wrote four novels and 60 short stories that failed to be accepted for publication. • Historians report that Napoleon Bonaparte, when he wasn't busy conquering, enjoyed ice skating. • Do animals grieve their own? Perhaps so -- at least, some animals. When an elephant dies, other elephants in the herd will cover the body with leaves and branches and often will stay with it for days. • You may be surprised to learn that a Boeing 747 jet is longer from wingtip to wingtip than the distance of the Wright Brothers' first airplane flight. • If you're enjoying summer picnics, you might want to keep in mind the fact that there are 1,500 known species of fleas and 9,500 known species of ants. Then again, that might be a factoid you'd rather forget. *** Thought for the Day: "Strike an average between what a woman thinks of her husband a month before she marries him and what she thinks of him a year afterward, and you will have the truth about him." -- H.L. Mencken © 2018 King Features Synd., Inc.


• Although ranch dressing is the most popular dipping sauce for chicken wings, bleu cheese isn’t far behind. Frank’s Red Hot Sauce was the sauce used in the first batch of wings. • Each chicken wing has three sections attached by two hinges. One section contains the humerus bone and is called the drumette because of its resemblance to a mini-drumstick. The flat section contains the ulna and the radius, which contain less meat, but a better flavor, according to many, perhaps because of a greater concentration of fat. • The popularity of wings took a huge jump when the Buffalo Bills football team appeared in four consecutive Super Bowls from 1963 to 1966. About 1.33 billion wings are consumed nationwide on that day, enough to circle the Earth nearly three times. Wings are the second most popular snack on that Sunday (dips and spreads are #1), and about 23% of viewers eat wings.

• The well-known restaurant chain Buffalo Wild Wings didn’t get its start in Buffalo, but rather in Columbus, Ohio. But the two founders Jim Disbrow and Scott Lowery were former Buffalo residents who loved chicken wings. After a move to Ohio in 1982, the pair opened up their first restaurant, a franchise that has grown to having an outlet in every state in the Union. They dish up about 21 million wings each week, although on Super Bowl Sunday alone, that number is close to 8 million. A typical weekend at Buffalo Wild Wings has sales of about 6,000 wings at each restaurant, but that number jumps to 13,500 on Super Bowl Sunday. • Every year on the Friday before the Super Bowl, Philadelphia plays host to the Wing Bowl, a competition for chicken wing eating. Competitive eater Molly Schuyler has nabbed the prize for three out of the last five years. In 2018, she broke the previous record by gobbling down 501 wings in 30 minutes. • Buffalo, New York, holds its own National Buffalo Wing Festival each year, attracting more than 50,000 visitors annually. This festival supports local charities and has donated more than $345,000 to local causes since its founding 17 years ago.

Answer

• Legend has it that Buffalo wings trace their origins back to 1964 at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York. Owner Teressa Bellissimo cooked up a latenight snack for her son and his friends by deep-frying chicken wings and tossing them in a hot sauce and butter sauce. She added some celery and bleu cheese to the platter, and before long, the dish was in high demand. In 1977, Buffalo’s mayor Stan Makowski declared July 29 as the day to honor the popular appetizer. Today, more than 70,000 lbs. of chicken wings are served up at the Anchor Bar every month.

Weekly SUDOKU

Did you know that July 29 is International Chicken Wing Day? Let’s commemorate the day by studying up on these facts.

• The average wing-eater consumes about 12 wings in one sitting, with the average American eating 90 wings a year. Those wing fans aged 18 to 24 munch about 61% more wings than any other age group. People in the South eat more wings than any other region, even edging out the Northeast where the wings originated. The Pacific Northwest eats the least.

• “For gorgeous biscuits, add a bit of sugar to your biscuit mix. They brown well and have lovely golden tops. To add depth to your sausage gravy, add a tablespoon of strong coffee just before serving. My granny did both of these, and her biscuits and gravy were famously good.” — J.R. in Alabama • “Tape pool noodles together to form a long line and secure across the width of your backyard pool to partition off an area just for the little kids. It’s not about safety, since you should be watching your kids every minute. We do this so that the bigger kids — who like to splash and dive — don’t run into the littler ones who are just floating or practicing swimming.” — W.L. in Florida • “When my children were little, they liked to do puzzles. We had quite a lot of them. So we wouldn’t get them mixed up, as soon as we opened the box, I would put a color on the back of all the pieces. Each puzzle had a different color, of course. It saved a of time and energy.” — P.H. in Pennsylvania • “How to bring the squeak and shine to glassware: Put 1 tablespoon of white vinegar into the water and dish soap. Try it and you’ll see it works!” — T.G. in New York • Try a toilet brush from the dollar store to clean the gunk and dirt off your tires the next time you wash the car. It has stiff bristles that go in all directions, and a handy holder, to boot! • Need to organize your ratchet wrenches? Use a tie rack or belt hanger and hang it off a nail on your shop wall.

MORE GOLF BITS

• Lady golfers got into the scene in 1893 when the Ladies’ Golf Union was formed in the UK, and the inaugural British Ladies’ Amateur Golf Championship was held. The U.S. Ladies’ Professional Golfers’ Association was founded in 1950, although Babe Didrikson was already a famous lady golfer by that time, having been the first American to win the British Women’s Amateur title in 1947. Although Didrikson attempted to qualify for the U.S. Open in 1948, her application was rejected because the event was open to men only. She had already won two Olympic gold medals and one silver in track and field and was an All-American basketball player before turning her attention to golf, where she won 10 major LPGA championships. • The first person to play golf on the moon was astronaut Alan Shepard while a member of the Apollo 14 crew. In February, 1971, Shepard took a six-iron and two golf balls aboard the spacecraft with him, and attempted two drives, the second of which went more than 200 yards.

NUGGET OF KNOWLEDGE

Although the United States has the highest number of golf courses, numbering well over 15,000, the country with the highest number of golf courses per capita is Scotland, with one course for about every 9,400 people. New Zealand is second, Australia is third, followed by Ireland. The name Richard Lewis might not be familiar to you, but he holds the record for the most number of holes of golf played in a single year. In 2010, Richard played 11,000 holes, all at the Four Seasons Resort and Club in Irving, Texas.
