Educators in North Dakota, including one from Jamestown, recently talked politics with another nation’s leaders, toured behind-the-scenes at worldwide companies and saw a city that rose from ashes more than 60 plus years ago all during a trip to Germany.
Cody Mickelson, a German teacher at Jamestown High School, was part of a trip from June 26 to July 9 offered by Atlantik-Brücke and the North Dakota School Boards Association.
Geoff Ogilvy dropped into a three-way tie atop the Memorial leaderboard, giving up the outright lead by careless missing a par putt inside 3 feet.
The consolation for Ogilvy was a 7-under 65 and a share of the lead Thursday with Rickie Fowler and Justin Rose. They were two shots ahead of a group that included Phil Mickelson, who can go to No. 1 in the world with a victory at Muirfield Village.
Phil Mickelson’s Masters win, with Tiger Woods lurking but never really in contention, drew much higher television ratings than last year but fell far short of the record set by Woods’ first title at Augusta.
Sunday’s final round on CBS earned a 12.0 overnight rating and 25 share, up 36 percent from last year’s 8.8/21 for Angel Cabrera’s win in a two-hole playoff. But it didn’t come close to matching the 15.8/32 for Woods’ first Masters victory in 1997.

The evidence came not so much from the 5-under 67 he shot Friday at Bay Hill that put him into the thick of contention at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, rather a casual round earlier this week in the California desert.
Ping chairman John Solheim reminded the PGA Tour on Monday that it cannot make a separate rule to ban Ping Eye2 wedges, the 20-year-old clubs that led Scott McCarron to claim Phil Mickelson is “cheating” by using them.
Hours after McCarron said he would “not be silenced” over the grooves controversy, the PGA Tour’s situation became a little more muddled with Solheim’s gentle reminder.
AKRON, Ohio (AP) — The practice sessions have been a little sharper, his optimism much greater. Phil Mickelson isn’t sure how that will translate on the golf course, and he’s not sure that even matters at the moment.
Mickelson is simply thrilled to be back on the PGA Tour, for no other reason than he wasn’t expecting to play so soon.

It’s hard to imagine dirt track racing getting much better than Jamestown Speedway’s full-moon, Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular last Saturday night.
He won their hearts the last time, even though he couldn’t win their tournament. Tiger Woods stood in his way, as he so often does, but that didn’t stop New Yorkers from showing a lot of love for the swashbuckling lefty who kept grinning even as his chances of winning slipped away.
