Here’s a review of this week’s questions:
- What is the name of the historic cemetery in Covington, KY, originally consecrated in 1843?
- What Cincinnati Bengals receiver caught two touchdowns in 1982’s Super Bowl XVI?
- What is the name of the continuous truss bridge built in 1995 that replaced the Cincinnati-Newport Bridge?
And here are the answers:
- As part of Renaissance Covington, Linden Grove Cemetery offers walking tours that provide a glimpse at its long and illustrious history. As a certified Level One Arboretum, you can also see a wide variety of plants and trees, including several very old Pin Oak Trees. In 2001, it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the US Department of the Interior.
- Despite the Bengals’ heartbreaking 26-21 loss to the 49ers, Dan Ross had a stellar game. The Tight End, drafted in the second round by Cincinnati in 1979, had played college ball at Northeastern University and finished his NFL career in Green Bay in 1986. He held the record for receptions in a season until it was surpassed in 1995. He appeared in the Pro Bowl in 1982, and sadly passed away in 2006 at age 49.
- The Taylor-Southgate Bridge has four automobile lanes, an 850-foot central span, two approach spans of slightly different lengths, and two piers in the river. Pedestrian paths flank either side of the bridge, and the east walkway connects, via a staircase, with the U.S. Bank Arena (originally Riverfront Coliseum) Plaza. The Cincinnati-Newport Bridge became a pedestrian-only bridge and is now known as the “Purple People Bridge.”
