Golfing legend Arnold Palmer, 87, dies

Palmer rose from a blue-collar background to become part of the sport’s royalty – he was colloquially known on the PGA tour as “The King” – and frequent playing partner of U.S. presidents. He left an indelible mark on the world of golf in the form of nearly 300 signature – designed courses, and Arnold Palmer Enterprises, which handled his endorsements and other ventures, helped make Palmer the first golfer to make his name a worldwide franchise.

A farewell to golf legend Arnold Palmer, who died Sunday

For the last several decades of his life, Arnold Palmer had shown up at golf tournaments without much of a game and no chance to win. He would shoot his 80’s and 82’s, frown at the bogeys and smile at the crowds, and we would nod and say, “Good for you, Arnie.” The fact is, if he shot 90 or 100, he was still Arnie and that’s what we came to see. Him, not his birdies.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said last week that he will invite the U.N. chief and European Union officials to investigate his bloody anti-drug crackdown, but only if he can question them in public afterward to prove their human rights concerns are baseless. Duterte disclosed the offer in a speech in which he again lashed out at critics of his crackdown, including President Barack Obama and European countries. More than 3,000 suspected drug dealers and users have been killed since July and more than 600,000 others have surrendered for fear of being killed in Duterte's crackdown.

Fancy, a 14-year-old member of the critically endangered Visayan warty pig species, gave birth to healthy piglets at the Brevard Zoo.
