Fun fact: What happened on July 9, 2002? If you guessed a birthday for Rich Hauer, Tom Hanks or the late Nikola Tesla, congratulations. You win and score a point. If not, no worries. Perhaps you said it was the anniversary of Johnny Cash’s signing with Columbia Records in 1958, or the last Grateful Dead concert in 1995? If so, score another point for each correct response. However, if you guessed this was the date that emerald ash borer (EAB) was first positively identified in the Michigan region of the United States, you are the winner.
