General Events:
Newspaper Carrier Day
September 4, 2015 in the USA
Newspaper Carrier Day takes place on September 04, 2015. Newspaper Carrier Day is celebrated in the United States and honors Barney Flaherty, the first newspaper carrier (or paperboy) hired in 1833, as well as all current newspaper carriers. It is celebrated on September 4, the anniversary of Flaherty’s hiring by Benjamin Day, publisher of the New York Sun. It is also observed by The Armidale Express, NSW, Australia.
Newspaper delivery is the last stage of newspaper circulation consisting of distributing newspapers to those who are interested in owning a paper. One method of distributing newspapers is selling newspapers on the street, or in favorable locations, either by a “newsboy” or at a news stand, or in vending machines, but newspaper delivery generally refers to delivery to subscribers on a regular route, usually by bicycle or automobile.

National Wildlife Day
September 4, 2015 in the USA
National Wildlife Day, founded in 2006, serves to bring awareness to the number of endangered animals nationally, as well as globally, that need to be preserved and rescued from their demise each year, but also to acknowledge U.S. zoos and outstanding animal sanctuaries and organizations for everything they do to help preserve this planet’s animals and educate the public about conservation – especially to children….our animal’s future caretakers and conservationists.
National Wildlife Day will also encourage citizens to stand up and fight for animals that need a voice, visit their local zoo and donate to worthy wildlife rehabilitation sanctuaries and organizations that make a difference in the lives of our beloved wild animal friends.

Wisconsin State Cow Chip Throw
September 4-5, 2015 in Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin
he first pioneers that settled in the Plains faced Indians and unfriendly land. The desire to own a home and land to raise a family gave the settlers the determination to brave the difficult conditions. The scarcity of water and timber for fuel and shelter, plus extreme weather conditions, made life hard and lonely. Bitter winters found the settlers desperate for fuel.
Buffalo hunters had found that buffalo chips could be used for fuel. Most of the buffalo were gone by the time the settlers came, so they had to rely on the “cow chip” for furnishing fuel to cook their food and warm their homes.
When dry, the chips were odorless, gave a clean, bright flame and burned with intense heat, without soot. Chips were gathered and stored for the winter as autumn approached. The cow chip was a life-sustaining utility and was often used in trade for food or anything the pioneers needed.
Giant Cow Chip In 1975 the Sauk Prairie Jaycees, recognized the Sauk Prairie Area as the Cow Chip Capital of Wisconsin and organized the first State Cow Chip Throw. In 1989 the Wisconsin State Legislature proclaimed the cow chip the Unofficial State Muffin.
