LOCAL FOOTBALL SCORING UPDATES PRESENTED BY THE HUNGRY HOBO:

Day in history for July 12, 2001

1876 -- 125 years ago
The C.R.I. And P. engines at Davenport have to come to Rock Island to turn around, as the turntable there is out of repair.

1901 -- 100 years ago
There were 18 entries for the fourth preliminary match for the women's handicap golf cup to be played for on the Arsenal golf links.

1926 -- 75 years ago
Arrangements have been perfected for the unveiling of a bronze marker at the intersection of 9th and 12th streets, Rock Island, the site of the western-most battle of the American Revolution.

1951 -- 50 years ago
Approximately two hundred and fifty persons are expected to join this evening in honoring East Moline's Mayor B.H. Ryan, president of the East Moline State Bank and recently elected president of the Illinois Bankers Association, on the occasion of a testimonial dinner being held for him by the East Moline-Silvis Association of Commerce at the Ship's Wheel on Campbell's Island. Following the dinner a brief program will be held.

1976 -- 25 years ago
John Lister, the golf pro from ``Down Under,'' was ``down under'' par more than enough to win the 1976 Ed McMahon Quad-Cities Open at Oakwood County Club. The 29-year-old New Zealander, who never had won in six years on the United States tour, showed few effects of taking the lead into the final day and parlaying it into a $20,000 first prize check with a four-under 67 round and a tournament record tying 268 total, 14-under par.

  Today is Monday, Sept. 22, the 265th day of 2014. There are 100 days left in the year.

1864 -- 150 years ago: The board of education has granted Thursday as a holiday for the children, with the expectation that parents who desire to have their children attend the Scott County Fair will do so on that day and save irregularity the rest of the week.
1889 -- 125 years ago: The guard fence around the new cement walk at the Harper House has been removed. The blocks are diamond shape, alternating in black and white.
1914 -- 100 years ago: The Rev. R.B. Williams, former pastor of the First Methodist Church, Rock Island, was named superintendent of the Rock Island District.
1939 -- 75 years ago: Abnormally high temperatures and lack of rainfall in Illinois during the past week have speeded maturing of corn and soybean crops.
1964 -- 50 years ago: Installation of a new television system in St. Anthony's Hospital, which includes a closed circuit channel as well as the three regular Quad-Cities channels, has been completed and now is in operation.
1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
