Quirky quote of the day
“There are only three things women need in life: Food, water, and compliments.” — Chris Rock
Today in history
On this day in 1968, 21-year-old Oregonian Dick Fosbury wins gold — and sets an Olympic record — when he high-jumps 7 feet 4 1/4 inches at the Mexico City Games.
It was the international debut of Fosbury’s unique jumping style, known as the “Fosbury Flop.”
Here’s the rest of the story:
Today — Sunny, with a high near 75. North wind between 5 and 15 mph.
Tonight — Clear, with a low around 41. East wind 5 to 10 mph becoming north.
