T-Swift Takes On Apple

Apple changes its tune because of Taylor Swift!

Apple Music wasn’t going to pay artists during the first three months of its new streaming service, which it’s offering to customers for free.

Taylor Swift wrote an open letter on her Tumblr saying she would hold back her 1989 album if they did that. She thought new artists or bands would be financially hurt.

Apple will now pay.

Jordan Spieth Wins U.S. Open

The end to the U.S. Open, as well as the course itself, were strange and bizarre.

Jordan Spieth, 21, won his second major championship of the year when Dustin Johnson choked on a putt 12-feet from the last hole.

Spieth is now the first player since Tiger Woods to win the first two men’s majors in a year.

It wasn’t easy – players called the course at Chambers Bay “weird and dumb.”

The Minnesota-based ice cream chain opened its very first store on this day in 1940 in Joliet, Illinois.

Dairy Queen is now headquartered in Edina, and that’s where the party is Monday night at  8 p.m.

There will be free ice cream and giveaways!
