Water Cooler: Augusta’s first women, Octagon Miller, Tom’s bull, ShoeZeum

Here are a few things in news, sports, entertainment and pop culture that caught our eye last week.

■ The Augusta National Golf Club admits its first female members. Way to go, guys. Only one more century to go before you’re finally caught up with the rest of us.

■ The ShoeZeum, a museum featuring more than 2,500 pairs of limited-edition sneakers, will open at Neonopolis. The hard part was finding a drugstore that had 2,500 pairs of Odor-Eaters in stock.

■ Nevada Secretary of State Ross Miller wins his first mixed martial arts fight and then retires. Deciding elections in the octagon would make politics way more fun to follow.

■ A bull owned by Clark County Commissioner Tom Collins escapes and sends a woman to the hospital with minor injuries. Usually, a politician’s bull just injures our wallets.
