1892 Golf Predictions

By Gene Bleile
In my quest for new and interesting topics to write about, I thought we would take a trip back to the future. (Just for the record, I never really cared for the movie "Back to the Future," which first came out in 1985, or the two which followed later).

So if you are under the age of 25 and wonder what Back To The Future, I II or III were about, go to Wikipedia and enlighten yourself. “Back to the Future” is a mixture of science fiction and Rip Van Winkle, based on a book written by J. McCullough in 1892, “Golf In The Year 2000 (Sub heading: What We Are Coming To).”

Jack McCullough was a professional Scottish golfer in the late 1800’s who made some pretty good futuristic predictions I will quote or shorten in a paraphrase format, so you can get back to happy hour or take a swim in the ocean.

Make a splash at Jawsfest

Local artists are diving into The Blue Line Challenge to help raise money for frontline workers at Beebe Healthcare. Anyone who wants to participate can pick up a comic art board Friday, Aug. 14 or Saturday, Aug. 15 from noon to 5 p.m. at the comic shop next to the Milton library.

The collaboration began with a conversation between Fred Giovannitti of Ink & Energy Tattooing and Justin "Ogre" Sinnott of Ogre’s Grove. Sinnott features seasonal art exhibits in his shop, but he hasn't been able to host a reception since the pandemic started. When he told Giovannitti that Ogre's Grove would be vending at Jawsfest, Giovannitti pointed out it would be a great opportunity to showcase artists who haven't been able to share work at their usual venues.
