DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – A new exhibition about cycling in Iowa and the annual RAGBRAI event will open this week at the State Historical Museum of Iowa.  Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds showcased the “Riding Through History” exhibition during a Monday news conference. The exhibition opens to the public on Friday, just before the annual RAGBRAI event begins Sunday.

RAGBRAI – which started in 1973 – is a week-long bicycle ride through Iowa sponsored by the Des Moines Register.

Perry finishes strong to win


July 15th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Kenny Perry has completed his comeback from 10 shots down after the second round to win the U.S. Senior Open. Perry shot a final-round 63 and won his second straight senior major by five strokes over Fred Funk. His 64-63 finish set a tournament record for the last 36 holes.

The 52-year-old Kentuckian started the final round two shots behind leader Michael Allen, but was in front to stay after he birdied the second and third holes and Allen bogeyed the third. Perry won the Senior Players Championship two weeks ago.

Teenager Spieth is youngest PGA winner in 82 years


July 15th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

SILVIS, Ill. (AP) — Nineteen-year-old Jordan Spieth outlasted David Hearn and Zach Johnson on the fifth hole of a playoff to win the John Deere Classic on Sunday, becoming the youngest winner on the PGA Tour in 82 years. Spieth hit a two-foot par putt to earn a spot in next week’s British Open. He is also the first teenager to win since Ralph Guldahl took the Santa Monica Open in 1931. Spieth forced his way into the playoff by holing out of the bunker from 44 feet on the final hole of regulation.

Spieth, Hearn and Johnson made par on the first four playoff holes, but Spieth made another par while Johnson and Hearn scored bogeys on the fifth.

Molina powers Cardinals to 10-6 win over Cubs


July 15th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

CHICAGO (AP) — Yadier Molina hit a three-run homer in St. Louis’ four-run ninth inning, and the Cardinals beat the Chicago Cubs 10-6 on Sunday night in the majors’ final game before the All-Star break.

Allen Craig lined a tiebreaking RBI single into left field before Molina drove an 0-2 pitch from Kevin Gregg (2-2) over the wall in left for his seventh homer. Craig and Molina tuned up for Tuesday’s game in New York with four hits apiece, helping St. Louis to a season-high 21 hits overall.

Chicago went up 4-3 on Darwin Barney’s three-run homer in the sixth and pinch hitter Cody Ransom had a tying two-run double in the eighth, but the Cubs’ bullpen was unable to hold off the NL’s highest-scoring team.
