Admission is $7. Children under 10 are free. Dollar hamburgers and hot dogs will be sold all day.

Prammanasudh 12 back
at LPGA Founders Cup
PHOENIX (AP) — Jee Young Lee birdied three of the last four holes to take a one-stroke lead over Ai Miyazato on another hot day at the LPGA Founders Cup.
Lee, the South Korean player who won the tour’s 2005 South Korean event, had a bogey-free 8-under 64 on Friday to reach 15-under 129 and break the tournament 36-hole record. She played in the morning wave before the temperature climbed into the low 90s at Desert Ridge.
Enid’s Stacy Prammanasudh shot a 72 to be at 141 after 36 holes. Miyazato bogeyed her final hole for a 67 a day after shooting a tournament-record 63. The Japanese star is playing her first event since sustaining a whiplash injury three weeks ago in a five-vehicle crash in Thailand.
Third-ranked Stacy Lewis, coming off a victory two weeks ago in Singapore, was four strokes back after a 65.

Jackson signs with Mid-America Christian
Jemarcus Jackson signed a letter of intent to play basketball on a scholarship at NAIA Division I Mid-America Christian University in Oklahoma City on Monday, ending a long wait for the Enid High senior, and a longer one for his nerves.
Jackson already was sweating thanks to a weighty training session just before his signing ceremony at the Enid High School food court, but that wasn’t the only reason he was “sweating like a dog” as he filled out the paperwork.
