Pentagon takes steps to stop leaks WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon announced on Thursday that it is taking new steps to try to clamp down on leaks of classified information, saying unauthorized disclosures undermine national security and in some cases rise to the level of criminal acts. Pentagon press secretary George Little said in a statement that Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has ordered him to join the Pentagon’s top intelligence
official in monitoring all “major, national level” news media reports for unauthorized disclosures of secrets. Panetta also reiterated guidance issued by his predecessor, Robert Gates, that the Pentagon’s public affairs office should be the only source of defense information provided to the news media in Washington. Little announced these steps after Panetta testified in closed
session before the House Armed Services Committee on the matter of recent leaks of classified intelligence information. Joining Panetta at the hearing was the Joint Chiefs chairman, Gen. Martin Dempsey, and the Pentagon’s top lawyer, Jeh Johnson. “The unauthorized disclosure of classified information jeopardizes national security and is a violation of department regulation, policy,
Busse set in new village role One of the things Mike Busse is looking forward to in his new position is getting out of the office to meet with local residents. Interacting with the public is something Busse has enjoyed since he was a teenager working at his family’s meat market in his native Fort Loramie. Just a few weeks into his new job as Covington’s first village administrator, Busse said he’s getting to know the staff and how things operate in the village. “We have a great team of employees,” Busse said. “They are very eager for new challenges and new ideas.They are hard workers.”

Rain too late for many crops A top federal farm official who spent two days touring drought-stricken Indiana farms said Thursday that most of the state’s corn crop is in such bad shape that this week’s rainfall likely won’t boost yields. U.S. Agriculture Department Undersecretary Michael Scuse told local farmers who gathered at Kelsay Farms, a seventh-generation family farm south of Indianapolis, that 71 percent of Indiana’s corn crop is in poor to very poor condition due to drought and heat stress. Scuse said rain this week provided little or no help because most of Indiana’s cornfields have already passed through the crucial pollination stage when kernels form on each plant’s young cobs, a process the drought and heat stunted.

and, in certain cases, a criminal act that should be prosecuted,” Little said in the statement. “The new actions directed by Secretary Panetta today, in addition to the many steps taken by department personnel in recent months, are aimed at ensuring that the department upholds the important requirement to safeguard America’s national security

natured boy his whole life,” the elder Myers said. When nominations for the program were being accepted between Feb. 1 and March 15, Myers and his wife, Becky, decided it would be a wonderful opportunity for Seth, who is the Myers’ biracial adopted son. After Becky’s father, who is now deceased, MYERS had a stroke, Seth went out of his way to care for his grandfather and the two bonded as a result of Seth’s care-giving, Myers said. Seth asked his parents about whether or not he was adopted and the discussion they had with
him had a profound effect, one that was highlighted when the 8-year old decided he wanted to help a child in Africa through donations. “He came home one day and asked if he was adopted,” Myers said. “It was a real awkward situation, but after he found out, he wanted to know if he was from Africa. That’s when his heart grew toward kids without parents. He wants to help kids in foreign countries. He wants to build houses for people in Africa and get them some help. That’s one of his goals in life.” In the aftermath of the Joplin, Mo., tornado the entire Myers family traveled to the storm-ravaged
region for 10 days to serve breakfast, lunch and dinner to the victims. “He was working as much as any 8-year-old boy could, cleaning off tables and serving food,” Myers said. In November, Myers will be traveling to Ethiopia for one month to serve as a guest instructor at a Bible college and Seth plans to go along on the trip with his father. “He wants to attend an African school,” Myers added. “I think it will help him with his mission.” Seth said he was excited when he received the award. “I loved it,” he said. “I got a lot of stuff.”

I still miss football — next week is when I would usually be reporting to training camp — and I’m sure I’ll miss it once it gets started, but it’s been worth it to be able to spend time with my family.” After an All-Ohio career at Troy and an All-Big Ten career at Indiana, Dielman played for the Chargers, earning four trips to the Pro Bowl as an offensive guard. For the past four years, though, he’s made his return to Troy to take part in the camp, which is part of the Troy Football Alumni Association Weekend. Tonight will be a flag football game featuring former Troy players — Dielman not included — and Saturday will be an alumni golf outing.

I’ll bring a couple of cans back with me.” Perhaps a few less cans than usual on this trip, however. Since retiring, Dielman has lost 40 pounds, dropping him down to 285 pounds. He said he’d like to lose a few more. “I think 270 is a good fighting weight for me,” Dielman said. “I probably won’t lose any more than that, though. I don’t want to be a small guy. I’m getting in shape. It’s kind of nice — I can get in shape, but I don’t have to get in football shape anymore. There’s a difference.” Dielman said he plans to spend his weekend seeing as many family members and friends as possible. “It’s always great to come back home to Troy,” he said. “I love it here.”

Among the 10 steps were better training of Pentagon personnel if they suspect a threat from an insider or observe a leak, clearer instructions on what constitutes a leak and an online reporting system for significant security incidents. The document also said that the undersecretary of defense for intelligence commissioned a working group in April 2012 to develop a strategy to prevent leaks. The House Armed Services Committee chairman, speaking after the closed briefing, said he did not believe the Pentagon was responsible for recent national security leaks. “I feel pretty secure they were not” from the Pentagon, Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon, R-Calif., told reporters after

the three-hour hearing. McKeon would not say where he believed the leaks came from, but some Republicans have speculated that the White House was responsible for the leaks to enhance President Barack Obama’s national security image and improve his chances of re-election. They have demanded a special counsel, removing an investigation of the leaks from two U.S. attorneys selected by Attorney General Eric Holder. The chairman said the officials “assured us they are proceeding to try to limit those leaks,” adding that the leaks have “the potential for causing serious harm.” He said all three officials agreed that the leaks have already damaged national security. The top Democrat on the committee, Rep. Adam Smith of Washington state, said he also was convinced the Pentagon was taking the issue seriously. Holder has appointed U.S. attorneys Ron Machen in the District of Columbia and Rod Rosenstein, who is based in Baltimore, to lead the investigation into who leaked information about U.S. involvement in cyberattacks on Iran and about an al-Qaida plot to place an explosive device aboard a U.S.-bound flight.

First lady Michelle Obama accompanied by Newark, N.J. Mayor Cory Booker, left, and other elected officials speaks during an event to discuss her Let’s Move! initiative to combat childhood obesity, at the Lenfest Police Athletic (PAL) Center, Wednesday.
First lady to lead new campaign effort WASHINGTON (AP) — Taking on a more prominent political role, first lady Michelle Obama is launching a nationwide effort to motivate every supporter of President Barack Obama to get more involved in his re-election campaign — and bring along somebody else, too. The “It Takes One” program urges supporters to make a difference in this election, and to “start by taking one action that will help grow our campaign,” Mrs. Obama says. In a three-minute video message to supporters that was released Thursday, the first lady tells supporters that with a tighter election than 2008 likely this fall, “in the end, it could all come down to those last few thousand votes in a single state.” “Every time you take action to move this country forward, we’re asking you to inspire one more person to join you as well,” she says. “That could be the difference between waking up

groups of women to ask them to volunteer and stopping by voter registration events. That represents a significant increase in the first lady’s role in the campaign. Already, she has been traveling the country to raise money for the campaign and making appearances at rallies designed to energize volunteers and supporters. Mrs. Obama, whose high favorability ratings are a big asset to the campaign, was known during the 2008 presidential race as “the closer” for her ability to persuade undecided voters to come on board and her success at motivating supporters to get more involved. The first lady planned to formally launch the “It Takes One” program during campaign stops Friday in Virginia, a battleground state in this fall’s election. The first lady will speak at a campaign event for women in Charlottesville and to grassroots supporters in Fredericksburg. Obama’s campaign also plans to launch local “It Takes One” efforts in battleground states to engage new volunteers.

Campaign officials said Mrs. Obama would be the face of the effort and personally participate in many “It Takes One” events as she travels the country, recruiting neighborhood team leaders, speaking to

Weâ€™ll probably only play three songs off the old album,â€? he said. â€œItâ€™s going to be a real high-energy show. We try to play most of our uptempo songs. Itâ€™ll be a lot of fun. I might even do my dances moves.â€? Two and a half years ago, having â€œfunâ€? seemed like a certainty for the Nashville-based band after its debut single â€œRunawayâ€? hit No. 10 on the country music charts. The song helped L&Tâ€™s album â€œWorld Wide Openâ€? reach No. 10 on the album chart, and provided the career boost the trio was looking for. It just didnâ€™t last. Lyric Street tanked in 2010, and then shortly before the band was supposed to put pen to paper for a new deal with Sony on the RCA Nashville label, Bandas bowed out. â€œBrian called us and said â€˜Hey, I donâ€™t want to do this anymore.â€™â€? Lilesâ€™ and Gundersonsâ€™ resolve never wavered. In fact, they were even more determined to make the bandâ€™s new dynamic work. â€œWe called an emergency meeting and said, â€˜Hey, Brian is quitting, but we still believe in this

Liles said the band went into the studio with a clean slate and permission to make the kind of album it aspired to create. â€œWe love the old album, but you only have so much say when youâ€™re starting out. Weâ€™re really excited about the way the new album sounds,â€? he said. â€œI like the way we go back and forth on lead a lot. Neither of us is the frontman. Weâ€™re a true duo. A lot of times my mom doesnâ€™t even know

We had a little more say in the way it sounded,â€? he said. â€œJosh Leo is such a killer producer. We meshed really well with him (and) we got to record the album the way we really wanted to. We wanted it to sound like we sound live. â€œWe had the band all together in one room live,â€? he continued. â€œWe overdubbed some stuff, but we wanted it to be more organic and breathe a little more. It was such a great recording process.â€?
â€œAngel Eyesâ€? jumped to No. 7 on the Billboard Country singles chart this week, fueling the bandâ€™s anticipation for next weekâ€™s album release. â€œWeâ€™re so stoked (for it to come out),â€? he said. â€œItâ€™s been a long time, and weâ€™re pumped.â€? â€˘ For more information about Love and Theftâ€™s appearance at the Shelby County fair, visit the fairâ€™s website at shelbycountyfair.com.

AS I SEE IT
Dave Fisher Troy Daily News Guest Columnist
Is America headed down the Bain drain? Mitt Ronmey has repeatedly cited his business experience at Bain Capital as his chief qualification to be president, claiming he would use it to boost the economy, create jobs, and reduce the deficit. But Mitt Romney’s business record isn’t one of growing companies and creating jobs. It’s one of a jobs faker and a middle-class breaker. In deal after deal, Romney and his partners tried above all else to make millions of dollars for themselves. And they didn’t care that it came at the cost of others — crippling companies by loading them up with debt and putting thousands of Americans out of work. Even The Washington Post reported that Mitt Romney’s investment firm, Bain Capital, was an “outsourcing pioneer” — investing in companies that specialized in relocating American jobs to China and India. You know folks, when I think about pioneers, I think about the Wright Brothers, Lewis and Clark, the men and women that set off in a wagon westward to make a better life for them and to build this country. Pioneer? NO, Mutineer? YES, Profiteer? ABSOLUTELY! The worst part is Romney’s practices at Bain, costing jobs right here in the Dayton area. In the late 1980s, Mitt Romney led his partners in buying up hundreds of successful small clothing stores and combined them to form Stage Stores. Bain quickly took the company on an expensive and expansive growth binge, increasing from 257 stores in 13 states to 607 stores in 24 states — including 26 stores right here in Ohio. (Is this what we have to look forward to with Romney as President? Is he a Looting Republican? Will he rob the middle class to give to the well off? You might call him “A Bizarro Robin Hood.”) Stage quickly went public on the New York Stock Exchange. Romney and his team loaded Stage with debt, using high-risk junk bonds to finance the original purchase. Bain used junk bonds from a company called Drexel Burnham Lambert. Several months before the Stage deal, in connection with insider trading scandals, the Securities and Exchange Commission had sued Drexel and the man who built its junk bond business, Michael Milken. But Bain Capital went ahead anyway. In 1997, after expanding the company to its near breaking point through debt financing and risky investments, Bain sold nearly all their shares at an enormous profit — bilking $180 million from a $10 million investment. In less than a year, the stock had collapsed by more than 58 percent, sending Stage Stores into financial crisis. By 2000, Stage was forced to declare bankruptcy — closing 26 stores all across Ohio — including locations right here in Troy and two others in Sidney and Urbana. When all was said and done, 5,795 workers at Stage Stores across the country lost their jobs. One Stage store in Troy or Urbana or Sidney might seem like insignificant collateral damage to Romney, but what he fails to understand is that for small communities like ours, the closure of a Stage Store is devastating. It hurt workers, it hurt families and it hurt our community. But one thing from this story is clear — we don’t need Romney’s economics in Ohio or the Miami valley. It’s the same old regurgitated policies we have dealt with before. America needs to keep moving forward. That’s what President Obama’s vision is all about.

Cheers to celebrating four years at the TDN Recently I celebrated more than four years as a staff writer here at the Troy Daily News. Four years. I’ve completed an entire presidential term here. And when I say completed, I really mean, survived. If you all can remember, I never went to college to pursue journalism in the first place. I did fall in love with the craft at Urbana University, but I never knew it would take me places I’ve never been. I also never thought I’d be here this long. I’ve been here more than 1,460 days. But who has been keeping track? Like Katie Yantis expressed last Wednesday: It’s a second family. Sometimes it’s like a mafia family, but still, it’s family. With this career I’ve been blessed to do some amazing things and meet great people. I’ve shook hands and met with national politicians such as Speaker of the House John Boehner, failed Republican candidate Rick Santorum and his son John, saw Mitt Romney stand on the back of a truck, sat across the table from Dick Adams. Let’s not forget Mayor Michael Beamish — he’s still pretty notable in my book. Through this gig, I’ve been able to also meet local heroes; most of them are teachers and students
Melanie Yingst Troy Daily News Columnist here in our private and public schools. I no longer take for granted our children’s education here in Miami County. It’s a daily battle with budgets, teacher requirements, resources and just getting kids from point A to point B in 180 days. It’s a science and all of our schools are making it work despite the odds stacked against them. You should thank a teacher daily for the wonderful job they are doing with our best resources – our kids. I’ve also been able to do some amazing things while here at the Troy Daily News. You see, you’d never guess that I was once shy and a little backward. Yes, I said shy. It was through this job that I
developed a backbone. Over time, I learned how to muster up the courage it takes to ask the tough questions, make those difficult phone calls and show up at less than friendly venues. It eventually spilled over into my personal life. Now I’ll accept all invitations to do something new and go someplace different and meet total strangers because, no matter how sweet or sour the experience, I’ll be a better person by the end of the day. Through those experiences, I’ve flown in an open cockpit WACO airplane over our county’s landmarks. I’ve felt the history blow through my hair. I’ve hugged countless World War II veterans and felt their leathery cheek next to mine. Once rushed to get in and out of ceremonies, I now usually cry as I leave, unsure if they would be able to attend another honorary breakfast the following year. I now linger to stop and talk with as many as I can. Yet, my favorite part of this whole gig is being able to share with you each week a little bit of humor and a slice of a single mother’s life in the city, now in the country, every Friday. Some weeks are easier than others — believe me. I thank you all so
much who have stopped me to tell me you enjoy these columns because you all seem to know just when I’ve needed that extra push to keep going. Thank you! I recently read an article which explained Rule #6. At the office door a successful therapist, every time someone rushed inside, screaming, crying, pulling their hair out, the therapist simply said, “Remember Rule #6.” Suddenly the frantic patient calmed down, wiped away their tears and walked out the door. What’s “Rule #6?” Don’t take yourself so seriously. Rule #6, coupled with your kind words, is how I’ve managed through the tough times these last four years. If we can’t laugh at ourselves, who can really laugh with us? There are no rules one through five either. Just Rule #6. And that is why I only shared the positive experiences with you today about these wonderful four years here at the Troy Daily News. Cheers! “Twin” Melanie Yingst appears on Fridays in the Troy Daily News. She carries an ace of hearts in her pocket because someone told her she isn’t playing with a full deck.

Busse set for position as village administrator BY TOM MILLHOUSE Ohio Community Media email@example.com One of the things Mike Busse is looking forward to in his new position is getting out of the office to meet with local residents. Interacting with the public is something Busse has enjoyed since he was a teenager working at his family’s meat market in his native Fort Loramie. Just a few weeks into his new job as Covington’s first village administrator, Busse said he’s getting to know the staff and how things operate in the village. “We have a great team of employees,” Busse said. “They are very eager for new challenges and new ideas. They are hard workers.” He’s also impressed by members of Covington Village Council and Mayor Ed McCord. “They really have a vision to make Covington the best community it can be,” he said of village leaders. “That’s one of the reasons why I took the position; that’s the kind of community I wanted to be in.” While he’s been busy learning how village operations function and catching up on budget matters, Busse, 47, said he has had a chance to meet some local residents and plans to have more interaction in the future. “The people I’ve met have been very nice,” he said. “Everyone has been so friendly and positive.” Busse said he realizes that since the village has never had an administrator, there is bound to be some opposition to the position. “I know that anytime you do something new, some people are going to question whether it’s necessary,” he said. “I’ve had a lot of people say ‘We’re really glad that we have a village administrator,’” Busse recalled of his conversations with local residents. Busse comes to Covington after serving 11 years with the village of Russia, the last three years as village administrator. In his Russia position, Busse also served as police chief and head of utility operations. Prior to that, he worked from 1986 to 2001 as security operations manager for Crown Equipment in New Bremen. Having grown up in Ft. Loramie, then working in New Bremen and Russia, Busse said he enjoys life in small communities. “I like working in small towns; people are friendly,” Busse said, noting it’s easier to get to know people in a small community than in a larger city. Busse said he takes pride in working with the public, something he grew to appreciate while working at his family’s meat market in Ft. Loramie, the former Busse’s Meat Market. “You would wait on customers and have a conversation while you were get-

Busse said the village will be conducting a study of the sewage plant starting later this year to determine what improvements will be needed in the future.
COVINGTON ting their order,” he said. “You got to know a lot of people.” With the hiring of the village administrator, the former Covington Board of Public Affairs was dissolved. As a result of that change, Busse said there has been a shift from having the utilities departments and other village functions operate separately to becoming more of a unified operation. “We’re working more together as a whole now,” he said. “Everyone is working together to get jobs done.” During his time with Russia, Busse oversaw the village’s utility operations, including the establishment of a water system. “Everyone used to be on wells,” Busse said, explaining he was involved in the creation of a water system from funding through design and construction. Busse said among these are a number of utilitiesrelated projects coming up in the village. Through a $15,000 grant, the village plans to hire an engineering firm to do a study of the sewage treatment plant. “We’re trying to be proactive,” Busse said, noting the village is not under orders from the Environmental Protection Agency to make immediate changes. The study will determine whether improvements are needed at the 30-year-old plant or if a new plant is needed, he said. A project currently underway is conducting smoke tests on village sewer lines to determine sources of storm water inflow into the system. Busse explained that when water leaks into the sanitary system during heavy rains, the clean water must be treated along with sewage, creating high flow to the treatment plant. “Typically you have a lot of little problems that add up to a big problem,” he said. The village also is mak-
ing changes in the utility billing system. Plans call for the shift from quarterly billing to monthly billing by the end of the year. “It’s going to help people budget their money better,” he said. Another project started earlier this year by the BPA is the gradual transition from manual reading of water meters to electronic reading. Busse said over the next four years, the village will be shifting to a system in which eventually all water meters will be read by devices that will receive radio signals as a village employee drives by a residence or business, instead of having a person walk from door to door manually recording the meter readings in a log book. “It will be a tremendous labor savings,” Busse said of the new system, noting when fully implemented, it would cut the time required to complete meter readings from 40 hours a month to just one hour. Other grants the village is pursuing are funding from the Ohio Public Works Commission for the planned first phase of the Spring Street reconstruction project and funding from the Miami County Health Department to raze dilapidated properties in the village. Busse said the fate of the Spring Street grant is not known yet, but some decaying properties in the village have been identified for possibly demolition through the county. Another challenge the new administrator is eager to pursue is assisting existing businesses and bringing new companies to the community. Busse said he plans to work with local and county officials to promote economic development in Covington. He and his wife, Beckie, have two grown children and three grandchildren. The Busses, who live in Russia, enjoy touring on his Honda Gold Wing motorcycle, and he also has a pilot’s license, but said high costs limit is flying time.

Dear Annie: I've been seeing "Bud" for a year. He lives in a trailer park and has a 23-year-old daughter who is on Bud's checking account and charge cards. This girl insists that her mother (Bud's ex-wife) spend weekends at the trailer, so Bud spends those weekends at my house. He will not tell his daughter no. This has put some stress on our relationship. His daughter often buys things for her mother, and Bud pays the bills. I find this a little strange. Bud doesn't understand my objections. He has no interest in saving for our future together. My friends say that Bud is using me because I have a nice house. If I were to marry him, I would make him sign a pre-nup, because otherwise he would give away everything I have. Am I being naive about our relationship? — Can't Take It Anymore Dear Can't Take It: You're not naive. You understand what's going on. But you don't seem to accept your limitations when it comes to changing the situation. A pre-nup won't solve your problem. Bud is going to continue to pay for his daughter's bills. He will continue to acquiesce to her requests, including having her mother stay at his place. And you will continue to be miserable playing second fiddle to his daughter. Your decision is how best to respond to this. Dear Annie: My husband is one of five sons. His parents recently passed away, and he is the executor of the estate and is in the process of selling their home. He got several estimates and selected the realtor he felt would do the best job. One brother tried to get my husband to pick a friend, but my husband was not impressed with her. Another has been really nasty, telling my husband he should try harder to get more money from the sale. My husband's niece would like to buy the house. She made a reasonable offer, and my husband was happy to keep the house in the family. He called a family meeting, but only two brothers showed up, one of whom was the niece's father. He said my husband should get the house appraised in case it was worth more money. When my husband pointed out that the niece might not be able to afford the house if it's priced any higher, her father said this is a business deal and to get as much money as possible. This is upsetting my husband, who would love to sell to his niece. The two brothers already have stopped speaking to him, and before this is all over, the family may fall apart completely. What is your take? — All in the Family Dear Family: When parents die, there is often fallout between siblings over money. But many times the real issue is the perception that one sibling was loved more than another. We suspect your husband was named executor because his parents thought he was the best choice to handle such things, which may also be the reason why he is getting so much resistance from his brothers. If the niece is offering a fair price for the house and your husband wants to sell to her, he should do so. Dear Annie: "Sterling, Mass." said, "Type 1 diabetes is an epidemic, and people with the disease aren't going to wait to eat." She should have said "Type 2." The CDC predicts that one out of every three people will have Type 2 diabetes by 2050. This form of diabetes is caused from a mixture of things, including heredity, eating and exercise habits. People with Type 2 diabetes may or may not use insulin. Fast-acting insulins can begin to work in 10 to 15 minutes, so the person needs to start eating fairly soon after injecting. Others might be able to inject the insulin up to 30 minutes before the meal. — Advanced Diabetes Nurse Specialist/Educator, Transcultural Nurse Specialist Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

HINTS FROM HELOISE
What is the proper way to file a TSA claim? Dear Heloise: I bought a pair of porcelain candleholders on a recent trip. I packed them carefully (in air-pocket wrap) in my checked luggage. Upon my return home, the candleholders were unwrapped, and one was damaged. What can I do? — A Reader, via email There is something you can do, and it’s good information for all of my readers. According to the Transportation Security Administration, travelers can file a claim for broken or damaged items if they believe the TSA is responsible. Be aware that there are more than a dozen airports that use other screening services
Hints from Heloise Columnist and do not accept TSA claims. To file a claim, you need to download or request a claim package from the TSA and submit all required paperwork. Download the packet at www. TSA.gov. The main phone number for the TSA is 866-289-9673, and the Claims Management Branch fax number is 571-227-1904.
Some of the things you may be asked for are: • Purchase receipt (credit-card receipt or, if not available, a bank statement). • Baggage tags or boarding passes. • Repair or replacement estimates. • Photographs of items (if you have them — Heloise). Mail or fax claim documents to the TSA Claims Management Branch. Within three weeks, you should receive an acknowledgment letter with instructions. But the claim itself can take anywhere from two to six months to complete. The TSA may not repack items as carefully as you had orig-
inally (if at all). So if something is important or valuable to you, put it in your carry-on or have it shipped directly to your house. — Heloise ART AVALANCHE Dear Heloise: I love my children’s artwork and have a hard time throwing anything away. I read in your column about scanning the artwork into the computer. Such a helpful hint! I have found that there are many websites (and even some drugstores) that can take your pictures and make them into a book. I did this with my kids’ work, and loved it so much that I made some for the grandparents. — Sheila, via email

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Friday, July 20, the 202nd day of 2012. There are 164 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 20, 1969, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin became the first men to walk on the moon after reaching the surface in their Apollo 11 lunar module. On this date: • In 1861, the Congress of the Confederate States convened in Richmond, Va.
• In 1871, British Columbia entered Confederation as a Canadian province. • In 1917, the draft lottery in World War I went into operation. • In 1942, the first detachment of the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps later known as WACs began basic training at Fort Des Moines, Iowa. The Legion of Merit was established by an Act of Congress. • In 1951, Jordan’s King Abdullah I was assassinated in Jerusalem by a Palestinian gun-
man who was shot dead on the spot by security. • Today’s Birthdays: Actress-singer Sally Ann Howes is 82. Rockabilly singer Sleepy LaBeef is 77. Senator Barbara A. Mikulski, D-Md., is 76. Actress Diana Rigg is 74. Rock musician John Lodge (The Moody Blues) is 69. Country singer T.G. Sheppard is 68. Singer Kim Carnes is 67. Rock musician Carlos Santana is 65. Rock musician Paul Cook (The Sex Pistols, Man Raze) is 56.
Rain too late for most of Indiana’s corn WHITELAND, Ind. (AP) — A top federal farm official who spent two days touring drought-stricken Indiana farms said Thursday that most of the state’s corn crop is in such bad shape that this week’s rainfall likely won’t boost yields. U.S. Agriculture D e p a r t m e n t Undersecretary Michael Scuse told local farmers who gathered at Kelsay Farms, a seventh-generation family farm south of Indianapolis, that 71 percent of Indiana’s corn crop is in poor to very poor condition due to drought and heat stress. Scuse said rain this week provided little or no help because most of Indiana’s cornfields have already passed through the crucial pollination stage when kernels form on each plant’s young cobs, a process the drought and heat stunted. “I don’t care how much rain you get. You can’t put kernels on that,” Scuse said,
holding up an ear of corn picked at Kelsay Farms that was virtually devoid of butter-yellow kernels. Although the corn crop can’t be helped, rain in the coming weeks could still help soybean fields, he said. Scuse’s visit to Kelsay Farms, about 15 miles south of Indianapolis, came a few hours after the release of the latest U.S. Drought Monitor report, which showed that almost 54 percent of Indiana is now in extreme drought. The lingering drought has led the USDA to declare a natural disaster for 80 of Indiana’s 92 counties. Scuse said he visited farms in Indiana, Michigan and Ohio this week partly to get a firsthand look at drought damage and speak to farmers about what the agency might do to help them. His Indiana visit, which included stops Wednesday in northern Indiana, was

also part of the Obama administration’s push for Congress to pass a five-year $500 billion farm and nutrition bill awaiting action in the House. Scuse said the bill contains provisions funding additional disaster pro-
grams that could help farmers, particularly dairy and livestock farmers suffering from the nation’s worst drought in 25 years. “We’re calling on Congress to act as quickly as possible,” he said. “The sooner we get the farm bill
passed the better it’s going to be for all of our producers.” Kelsay Farms is coowned by Merrill Kelsay, the father of Joe Kelsay, the director of the Indiana Department of Agriculture who showed Scuse around his family’s farm Thursday. Joe Kelsay said afterward that the amount of damage to crops across the state varies, depending on local conditions. Isolated rainfall in one field can totally miss others nearby. “Nearly everyone I’ve spoken to has some level of decline in their expectation for a crop. Some people we’ve talked to have a picture of a total loss or a near total loss of crop,” he said. Kelsay said his family’s farm received 2 inches of rain about a week and a half ago from a severe thunderstorm that also damaged some fields with high winds. That rain, and a half-inch that fell Wednesday, has
greened up the farm’s lawns. But only miles away, lawns and fields remain brown and in dire need of moisture, said Joe Rode, a beef cattle farmer whose family has farms in adjacent Morgan County and three other central and southern Indiana counties where they raise about 1,200 cattle. “This looks like paradise compared with the way it looks 10 miles from here,” Rode said. Months of drought and sweltering 100-degree conditions have saddled his business with higher feed costs for his cattle, including hay trucked in from Iowa that costs $180 a ton before the shipping costs, he said. Rode, 65, said some of the springs he draws on to provide water for his cattle have dried up. He’s hoping for rain soon to get those springs flowing again.
Argentina sees grains windfall from BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — America’s loss is Argentina’s gain. Record soy prices due to a punishing drought in the U.S. heartland are expected to create billions of dollars in new revenue for the South American country, which is the world’s third-
Trade, its highest prices since 2008. A punishing U.S. drought has reduced supplies of the very grains Argentina grows in abundance — mostly to China, which buys 80 percent of Argentina’s soy. Global grain supplies also are under pressure from lowered estimates in Russia and an “underperforming Indian monsoon” season, Barclays Capital said in its commodities briefing on Thursday.

The former chairman of the Penn State board of trustees resigned on Thursday, becoming the first board member to do so in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. Steve Garban was harshly criticized over his handling of the crisis that engulfed Penn State after Sandusky’s arrest last November, and he faced persistent calls from alumni and fellow board members to step down. An internal investigation by former FBI Director Louis Freeh found that Garban was briefed twice about developments in the Sandusky case but didn’t share what he knew with the entire

Walk in the park Scott grabs early lead at British LYTHAM ST. ANNES, England (AP) — Unlike the guys in charge of the weather forecast, Adam Scott got everything just about right Thursday in the British Open. Scott was determined not to take himself out of contention in the opening round at Royal Lytham & St. Annes, as he had done in the first two majors this year. Caddie Steve Williams gave him a pep talk to play the first hole like it was the last one. Even more inspiration came from the international flags posted above the massive grandstand down the left side of the first tee. They weren’t flapping. They were sagging.

I’m sure there’s going to be some weather elements thrown at us the next three days, so just going to have to knuckle down to handle that. But I’m confident. My ball striking is good. I think I can get it around no matter what the conditions are.” The proof was in limp flags and red numbers on the scoreboards.

Penn State ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 board, depriving trustees of a chance to prepare for the worst crisis in Penn State’s 157-year history. Freeh’s 267-page report portrayed a disengaged board that handed too much responsibility to the university president and failed to investigate deeply enough once it became aware of a grand jury probe. After the report’s release, trustees accepted responsibility for a failure of oversight and said they were “deeply ashamed.”
Board Chairwoman Karen Peetz, who announced Garban’s resignation, said at the time that no trustee would step down, however. While Garban is the first trustee to resign in the wake of the Sandusky scandal, he’s not the first board casualty. Incumbent trustee Anne Riley lost re-election last spring as alumni upset over the board’s handling of the crisis picked three new trustees all of whom campaigned on a reform platform to sit on the 32-member panel.
A 1959 Penn State graduate, Garban worked at the university for 33 years, the last 12 as treasurer and senior vice president of finance and operations. Alumni first elected him to the board of trustees in 1998, and he began his fifth three-year term in 2010. Some trustees felt he was too close to ousted university president Graham Spanier, according to the Freeh report. “Some trustees thought Garban’s history of being previously employed at
Penn State, where as (senior vice president) he reported directly to Spanier, hampered his ability to lead the board,” the report said. • Big Ten Commish May Get Power To Fire Coaches (AP) — In the wake of the scandal at Penn State, the Big Ten Conference is considering a plan to give its commissioner the power to punish schools with financial sanctions, suspensions and even the ability to fire coaches. An 18-page plan being
circulated among Big Ten leadership raises the possibility of giving Commissioner Jim Delany such authority, the Chronicle of Higher Education reported Thursday. The plan, which the Chronicle posted online, suggests that in certain circumstances requiring “immediate and decisive action,” the commissioner would have unilateral authority to “take any and all actions” in the best interest of the Big Ten. The league declined
comment when contacted by The Associated Press for comment on the plan titled “Standards and Procedures for Safeguarding Institutional Control of Intercollegiate Athletics.” “It is a working document intended to generate ideas, not draw conclusions,” according to an email sent from Big Ten headquarters to people in the league. “One provision in the document addresses ‘emergency authority of the commissioner’ — it is just one of many ideas.”

Tension high at opening ceremony
U.S. beats Britain by 40 MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Deron Williams was in, Carmelo Anthony out, and both were better for it. Of course, it wouldn’t have mattered what lineup the U.S. men’s Olympic basketball team used against an inexperienced and overmatched opponent. Williams and Anthony responded to a lineup change with 19 points apiece, and the Americans beat Britain 118-78 on Thursday in an exhibition game. LeBron James added 16 points and Russell Westbrook had 15 for the Americans, who built a 40point lead early in the fourth quarter and every basket from there seemed to be a dunk. Chicago Bulls All-Star Luol Deng scored 25 points for Britain against his former college coach at Duke. “He said they just had never faced that speed and quickness, so you can’t practice that,” Mike Krzyzewski said. “You can’t simulate that, so I thought it was a great experience for them. And us.” Krzyzewski inserted Kevin Durant for Anthony, and Williams for Chris Paul, and both Anthony and Williams flourished in their new roles. Williams, who couldn’t scrimmage with the Americans when they opened camp because he hadn’t signed his $98 million extension with the Nets yet, made 7-of-8 shots, going 5 of 6 from 3-point range and adding five assists. “I feel I adjusted pretty well,” Williams said. “I was a little worried about how my conditioning was going to be, just because I hadn’t played 5-on-5, but I just trained really hard coming in so I’d just be in the best shape possible, and I feel like I’m there.” Anthony came in for Durant in the first quarter — apparently unnoticed to the PA announcer, who credited Durant with the Knicks forward’s first basket — and shook off the change well after being a starter in three previous years with the national team and both exhibitions this year. He rebounded from a poor game in Washington by shooting 8 of 10 from the field. “It was fine with me, definitely fine with me,” Anthony said of the change. “(Krzyzewski) came to us this morning, me and Chris, asked if we were OK with it. I’m like, why wouldn’t we be? It is what it is. He want-
LONDON (AP) — Transforming the Olympic Stadium into a rural idyll is proving far from serene for Danny Boyle ahead of the opening ceremony. As he perfects next Friday’s curtain raiser, the Oscar-winning director is discovering that art and sport can be a volatile mix. London organizers have acknowledged tension between Boyle and Olympic broadcasters, while trying to downplay suggestions of a full-blown standoff. Boyle has already been forced to trim parts of the ceremony to ensure it finishes in time for spectators to get home before public transportation shuts down. And the “Slumdog Millionaire” director is now locked in negotiations with Olympic Broadcasting Services about camera positions. The cameras installed in the 80,000-seat stadium are in prime spots to capture
sports action. But Boyle wants his own cameras in place to capture a cinematicstyle “Isles of Wonder”themed show. “There are creative tensions in here,” London organizing committee spokeswoman Jackie Brock-Doyle said. “Right now the discussion is where cameras are going … In any kind of show you have got creative people all doing all different elements of it, getting towards that opening night I think people get a bit excited.” Adding cameras involves removing seating, although tickets for them hadn’t been sold. “Danny was very keen to make sure that the coverage of the opening ceremony was filmed, not from a sports standpoint, but to capture the way in which the ceremony was being played through,” said James Bulley, the director of venues for the organizing committee.

LeBron James of the USA hangs from the hoop after scoring during an Olympic Warm Up match at the Manchester Arena, Manchester, England, Thursday July 19, 2012. Competitors from around the globe are arriving in London to prepare for the upcoming London 2012 Olympic Games. ed to put a different lineup out there against this team, see some different things. He’s still trying to figure it out as a coach as well with this new group.” Britain’s home game was similar to the Americans’ opener against China in the Beijing Olympics, where plays for both teams were loudly cheered. The boos were brief, when a light “USA!” chant broke out in the fourth quarter. Basketball has little place in British sports, but with the national team returning to the Olympics this year as the games’ host, the sport got some attention with a visit from the powerful U.S. squad. In an unusual pregame scene, the crowd didn’t seem
interested in the home team’s strange set of pregame warm-up exercises, choosing instead to watch the Americans’ practice dunks, oohing and aahing along the way. The rules of the game were then written shown on the overhead video scoreboard and explained by the public address announcer before play began. The British, also including the Portland Trail Blazers’ Joel Freeland and coached by Houston Rockets assistant Chris Finch, hung with the Americans for 10-plus minutes before the visitors’ athleticism ran them off the floor. “We knew what kind of level we had to get to to
compete in the Olympics,” British forward Kieron Achara said. “This was a level higher than we were used to.” Krzyzewski went with an explosive lineup of Durant, Kobe Bryant, James and Anthony — four of the NBA’s top six scorers — and Paul late in the second quarter, and James scored twice on feeds from Anthony and set up Durant for another basket in an 8-0 spurt that extended a 10point lead to 18, and the game was never close again. “It doesn’t get more explosive than that and that’s the dynamic of our team,” James said. “We have an opportunity to do multiple things with our lineups and it’s a luxury we have.”

Brandon got us going.” Alfredo Simon (2-1) allowed one hit in 1 2-3 innings for the win. Logan Ondrusek and Sean Marshall combined to pitch a scoreless eighth and Aroldis Chapman pitched the ninth for his 15th save as the Reds salvaged a split of the four-game series and moved a halfgame ahead of idle Pittsburgh in the NL Central. The Reds improved to 2-2 in their first four games without All-Star first baseman Joey Votto, who underwent arthro-
scopic surgery on Tuesday to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. They also have 22 comefrom-behind wins. “The Reds are a very resilient team,” Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said. Phillips, who usually bats fourth, finally got going in Votto’s normal No. 3 spot. He was a combined 3-for-11 with one RBI in the first three games since manager Dusty Baker moved him up a notch. “Brandon can hit all over the order,” Baker said. “He’s the only guy we’ve got who can do that. This lets you know you can come back. It shows us what we can do without Joey. You’ve just got to keep doing what you can do.”

Upton hit a three-run double off Jimenez (8-9) during a four-run sixth that put the Rays up 5-0. After getting two outs, Jimenez loaded the bases before giving up Upton’s shot down the third-base line. “It was a slider that got too much of the plate,” Jimenez said. “He’s a really good hitter.”
Upton scored on Carlos Pena’s RBI single. Jimenez allowed five runs and seven hits in 5 2-3 innings. He struck out five and walked five. “He threw a lot better than the last outing, so we’re very encouraged by that,” Acta said. “I thought Ubaldo battled well for us. He gave us five innings to do something, to score runs, and we couldn’t do it.” Jimenez was coming off a start last Saturday in which he gave up eight runs in 2 1-3 innings in an 11-9 loss to Toronto.

â– CONTINUED FROM 15 Scott was among three dozen players with rounds in the 60s, a group that included Tiger Woods. Trying to end a four-year drought in the majors, Woods raced out to four birdies in seven holes to take the early lead, only to settle into a series of pars and one adventure through grass up to his knees for a lone bogey that gave him a 67. In his third Open at Lytham, Woods said it was as easy as he had ever seen it play. â€œThe wind wasnâ€™t blowing, and weâ€™re backing golf balls up,â€? Woods said. â€œThatâ€™s something we just donâ€™t see.â€? Lawrie won his British Open in nasty conditions at
BRITISH OPEN AT A GLANCE LYTHAM, England (AP) â€” A quick look at Thursdayâ€™s opening round of the British Open golf championship at 7,086, par-70 Royal Lytham & St. Annes. Leading: Aussie Adam Scott at a course record-tying 6 under. Pursuing: Former major winners Paul Lawrie (British Open), Zach Johnson (Masters) and big-hitting Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts at 5 under. Defending champion: Darren Clarke, who shot 76. Whereâ€™s Tiger?: Woods is lurking at 3 under, along with a half-dozen other golfers. Bouncing back: Rory McIlroy birdied two of the last three holes and climbed back to 3 under after his tee shot on No. 15 hit a spectator in the head, ricocheted out of bounds and resulted in a double-bogey. Notable: For the first time since 1998 at Royal Birkdale, no golfer shot 80 or higher in the first round. Quotable: â€œHe could have headed it the other way. It would have been on the fairway.â€? â€” McIlroy. Key pairings (all times EDT): 8:43 a.m. â€” Adam Scott, Alan Dunbar (amateur), Matt Kuchar; 10:10 a.m. â€” Darren Clarke, Ernie Els, Zach Johnson; 10:43 a.m. â€” Tiger Woods, Sergio Garcia, Justin Rose. Television (all times EDT): 4:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., ESPN.
Carnoustie in 1999, and the Scot showed he could handle the calm weather with equal aplomb. He ran off three
birdies over the last five holes. Johnson, who won the 2006 Masters in the wind and cold at Augusta
National, flirted with a major record-tying 63 until a bogey on the 17th hole. Colsaerts, the big hitter from Belgium, holed out with an 8-iron on the 481yard second hole for eagle and added four birdies for his 65. Brandt Snedeker was another shot behind at 66. â€œWe had a little wind early on the front nine, but it kind of calmed down the second half,â€? Snedeker said â€œThatâ€™s the best Americans are going to see over here.â€? Rory McIlroy was panned last summer at Royal St. Georgeâ€™s for saying he prefers calm conditions, so maybe this was more to his liking. He wound up in the group at 67 after a wild day
filled with great shots, bad luck and a bump on the head for a 16-year-old spectator standing in the wrong spot. McIlroy was at 3 under with four holes remaining when his drive on the 15th hole sailed to the right of the fairway. It plunked the teenager in the head and caromed farther to the right. The teen was OK. The ball settled a few inches beyond the out-of-bounds stakes near a corporate tent, sending McIlroy back to the tee to play his third shot. McIlroy gave the lad a glove on which he wrote â€œSorryâ€? with a frown face and â€œRory.â€? â€œHe could have headed it the other way,â€? McIlroy joked later. â€œIt would have been on the fairway.â€?
Wiggins closes on title BAGNERES-DELUCHON, France (AP) â€” Britainâ€™s Bradley Wiggins overcame the mountains and challengers to retain the yellow jersey, while Spainâ€™s Alejandro Valverde won the 17th stage of the Tour de France on Thursday. After the last hard ascent, Bradley maintained his overall lead and said he sensed â€œthat it was pretty much overâ€? with just three racing days left. Heâ€™s trying to become the first Briton to win cyclingâ€™s biggest race. Wiggins faces one last test â€” the individual time trial, his specialty â€” on Saturday. Flat stages await Wiggins on Friday and Sunday, which features the ride to the finish on the Champs-Elysees in Paris. Those stages arenâ€™t expected to alter the standings. He appears on pace to some history: make Wiggins would become the first Olympic track champion to become a Tour winner. He took the yellow jersey in Stage 7, and hasnâ€™t let go of it since. No rider has done that since Franceâ€™s Bernard Hinault held a lead from the same stage in 1981 all the way to the finish. An 89-mile ride from the southwestern town of Bagneres-de-Luchon to the ski station of Peyragudes on Thursday featured three hefty ascents in the Pyrenees and an uphill finish. Valverde, the Movistar leader who returned from a
Bradley Wiggins, wearing the overall leaderâ€™s yellow jersey, climbs Port de Bales during the 17th stage of the Tour de France over 143.5 kilometers (89.2 miles) with start in Bagneres-de-Luchon and finish in Peyragudes, Pyrenees region, France, Thursday. two-year doping ban this year, won his third Tour stage in a breakaway. Christopher Froome of Britain was second, and Wiggins was third, both 19 seconds back. Overall, Wiggins leads Sky teammate Froome in second by 2 minutes, 5 seconds, and Italyâ€™s Vincenzo Nibali trails in third, 2:41 back, after losing 18 seconds to them in the final ascent. A 2-minute lead after nearly 80 hours of racing and 2 1/2 weeks might not seem like much of a margin. But in stage races like the Tour, the strategy of success for a leader is keying on his closest rivals.
Wiggins wasnâ€™t much worried about any other riders. After Nibali and Froome, his next closest challenger was Jurgen Van Den Broeck, who was 5:46 back, a deficit almost impossible to erase without a collapse by Wiggins. Defending champion Cadel Evans of Australia, after dropping out of contention in the first Pyrenean day on Wednesday, lost more time and trailed by 9:57. Still, he rose to sixth overall, after Spainâ€™s Haimar Zubeldia lost nearly a minute to the Australian. American Tejay Van Garderen â€” a BMC teammate of Evans â€” rose a
notch to fifth, and was 8:30 back. Valverde, with tears in his eyes in the winnerâ€™s circle, had a rough start to the Tour with at least three crashes. He also sensed Wiggins and Froome closing on him at the end of the stage. â€œI went all out,â€? said Valverde, who also won stages in the Tour Down Under and the Paris-Nice races this year. â€œWhen I saw there were only 700 meters left, I was really really happyâ€?. One of Skyâ€™s dilemmas was exposed on Thursday: Froome entered the day clinging to an 18-second lead over Nibali, and he
was looking for any chance to gain time on the Italian. On the final ascent to the Peyragudes, Froome tried to gain time on Nibali, but also repeatedly spoke with Wiggins and even gestured with his hand for the Sky leader to come along. â€œChris encouraged me, saying â€˜Come on, come on,â€™â€? Wiggins said. â€œHeâ€™s really strong â€Ś he can win the Tour one day.â€? The fog-shrouded stage in the Pyrenees led the peloton, depleted by crashes and sickness, over three big climbs. Those included the Port de Bales, one of cyclingâ€™s hardest, and two lesser ones. The most â€œpanacheâ€? â€” the French cycling buzzword for flair â€” in the race came from the climbers, notably by Franceâ€™s Thomas Voeckler who, a day after winning Stage 16, fought hard to keep his polka-dot jersey awarded to the Tourâ€™s best climber. As Valverde sped over the Peyrsourde pass, the last climb before a small uphill spurt to the finish, fans poured into the road â€” many with Spanish or Basque flags. For bookmakers and Tour fans, seasoned Wiggins was always the pre-favorite. The main question was whether heâ€™d hold up in the mountains. The attacks against Wiggins in the climbs were relatively few. The biggest came from Nibali, to a lesser extent by Van Den Broeck, and less so by defending champ Evans.
BY JIM LITKE AP Sports Columnist LYTHAM ST. ANNES, England â€” Just before noon, the name â€œTiger Woodsâ€? popped up on the leaderboard at the British Open with a red â€œ-4â€? alongside it. Not long ago, that would have been a signal for everyone else to book the first flight home as soon as the tournament ended. They already knew who had reserved the best seat at the trophy presentation ceremony afterward. On this Thursday, though, no one in the field at Royal Lytham was so much as tempted to reach into their bag for a cellphone. They all know that 15 different golfers â€” including nine first-timers â€” have won the last 15 majors. And that follows a run during which Woods won six of the previous 15. What few can agree on is whether itâ€™s harder or easier to win one of the marquee events since Tiger went into the tank. â€œYou can argue it both ways,â€? rising star Rickie Fowler said, splitting the fairway with his answer. â€œI think itâ€™s fun going into the week knowing that thereâ€™s a full field of guys and almost anyone can win. Weâ€™re not saying, â€˜OK, thereâ€™s a 50 percent chance or so that this guy is going to win this week, weâ€™ll try to give him a run and if not, weâ€™ll play for second.â€™ â€œAs a player,â€? he added, â€œitâ€™s a lot more fun playing against a handful of guys for a championship vs. trying to beat down one guy.â€? Thereâ€™s no point asking that â€œone guyâ€? whether golf is more fun these days, nor debating whether the game is better off with the Woods dynasty less dominant. Hardcore fans might find the variety more interesting, but the TV networks and sponsors would argue otherwise, citing how much Woods moves the meter. As proof, Woods began the opening round with the largest gallery and then, like the Pied Piper, kept collecting followers with a birdie at No. 1 and three more in a fourhole stretch starting at No. 4. But instead of wilting, a collection of well-worn rivals and fresh faces put in a bid for attention with some fireworks of their own. Aussie Adam Scott wrested the outright lead from Woods by getting to 5-under, then 7-under, eventually settling for a 64. Two other major winners, Paul Lawrie (British Open) and Zach Johnson (Masters) passed him with 65s. By the time Woods signed for a 67, he had plenty of company, including three-time major winner Ernie Els and more recent champions Graeme McDowell and Bubba Watson. â€œAs good a starting field as youâ€™ve seen, maybe?â€? someone asked Woods. â€œI only saw a couple of guys,â€? he replied. Woods pursuit of Jack Nicklausâ€™ record 18 majors has stalled at 14, and no one bothered to ask whether heâ€™s worried that any of the names alongside his at Royal Lytham will get in the way this time. But he conceded earlier in the week: â€œMore guys now have a chance to win major championships than ever before, and I think it will just continue to be that way.â€? If itâ€™s harder than ever to dominate, Woods has only himself to blame. He started the game earlier than nearly all his predecessors, played more and trained harder. His quick success in regular tour events and majors convinced plenty of the kids who followed him into golf that there was no reason they couldnâ€™t jump the queue, too. â€œThat feeling of patience and the feeling of a tournament being like a marathon has gone away,â€? said Padraig Harrington, whose back-toback major wins at the 2008 British Open and PGA Championship wound up demarcating the so-far-Tigerless era. â€œBut I do, I think we were spoiled with Tiger winning 14 majors in 15 years,â€? he said. â€œPeople began to think that was predictable.â€?
