Former President George H.W. Bush was chosen to receive the Bob Jones Award from the U.S. Golf Association, its highest honor. The award is for distinguished sportsmanship in golf, and recognizes a person who emulates the golf attitude and spirit of amateur great Bobby Jones.
From Ain’t It Cool News.:
Word is flying fast & furious: Team Jackson, New Line, and MGM have made nice and are gearing up to launch 2 HOBBIT movies.
One will be an adaptaion of J.R.R. Tolkien’s THE HOBBIT. The second project is believed to be a bridge between THE HOBBIT and THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy – culled from the titanic amount of periphery/ancillary/notated material found in Tolkien’s works. Such material can already be seen in the exiting films.
Yeah baby! I’ve been hoping for this. Finally, something to look forward to at the movies!
From the Amazing but True Golf Facts Calendar:
On this day in 1971, golf great Bobbby Jones died in his sleep at his Atlanta home. Upon learning of his death, play on The Old Course at St. Andrews immediately ceased and the flag on the clubhouse was lowered to half-staff.
Vanessa was inducted into the National Honor Society last night in a ceremony at her high school. The society:
The National Honor Society (NHS), established in 1921, is a recognition program for American high school students who show achievement in scholarship, leadership, service, and character.
Students are selected for membership through an established school chapter in secondary public and accredited private schools by a five member Faculty Council. Candidates must meet the chapter’s requirement for scholarship, service, leadership and character in order to be selected for membership.
We are very proud of her! She’s worked very hard for many years at her school work, and also spends a lot of time doing service work around the community. Great job Vanessa!
