A connection to an amazing American Memorial has died…..

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — The last living worker who helped construct Mount Rushmore National Memorial in South Dakota’s Black Hills has died.

Donald “Nick” Clifford of Keystone, South Dakota, was 98.   His wife, Carolyn Clifford, says he died Saturday at a hospice in Rapid City.

At 17, Nick Clifford was the youngest worker hired to work at Mount Rushmore.   He operated a winch that carried workers up and down the mountain where the faces of Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln were carved, and he drilled holes for dynamite.

Mount Rushmore sculptor Gutzon Borglum and his son, Lincoln, decided in 1938 to field a baseball team and hired Clifford, who already was a veteran pitcher and right fielder, the Rapid City Journal reported.

Clifford worked on Mount Rushmore from 1938-40, earning 55 cents an hour. Between 1927 and 1941, nearly 400 men and a few women worked on the memorial, which is now visited by nearly 3 million people annually.

In 2004, Clifford and his wife wrote his story in a book, “Mount Rushmore Q&A”. He would sign copies at the memorial’s gift shop.

“I feel like Mount Rushmore was the greatest thing with which I was ever involved,” Clifford said in a 2016 interview. “It tells a story that will never go away — the story of how America was made and the men who helped make it what it is today.”

Don’t mess with any 82-year-old woman named Willie, especially if she works out at the gym…..

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) – An intruder in Rochester, New York likely never expected his break-in to take such an unexpected turn.   That’s because few 82-year-old women are expected to pack the kind of punch Willie Murphy does.

She works out nearly every day at the gym and can deadlift 225 pounds.   That meant the intruder didn’t stand a chance with Murphy’s muscle and nerves of steel.  

Murphy says the man pounded on her door and said he needed an ambulance.   She called police but wouldn’t open the door.   It’s unclear if the man really needed medical attention when he knocked, but he sure did after he broke in.

Murphy clobbered him with a table before pouring shampoo in his face.   When police arrived, they found Murphy whacking the man with a broom.

Fake Frogs?!?!

NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. (AP) – Fake frogs?   It’s a real thing.   

A high school in Florida has begun using synthetic frogs for students to do classroom dissections.   J.W. Mitchell High School in New Port Richey began using the fake amphibians last week, becoming the first school in the world to use them.   The frogs are made of water, fibers and salts _ and can be reused.   They are made by SynDaver and cost $150 apiece.

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals provided some of the funding to develop the synthetic frogs.   PETA says 3 million
frogs are killed for use in classrooms each year.
