BACK SO SOON?

Many students at Tramway Elementary, Lee County’s lone year-round school, like being back on campus even though their neighbors are at home By ALEXA MILAN amilan@sanfordherald.com

SANFORD — The majority of Lee County students are sleeping in, heading to camp or taking a family vacation, but it was back to school Monday for the kids at Tramway Elementary, Lee County’s year-round school. The last day of school for Tramway students was June 9, around the same time as schools on the traditional calendar. But after a five-week summer break, the Tramway classrooms are filled with students and teachers once again. Second-grade teacher Robin Beeker said people who are more familiar with the traditional calendar frequently ask her how she likes teaching on a year-round schedule.

Kamron Jaleel laughs with classmates as they eat lunch on the first day of classes at Tramway Elementary School. “I think that year-round school is sometimes a difficult concept for people to get until

they’re in it,” Beeker said. “But I think overall it revitalizes the teachers and gives them a

Weekend fire destroys 3 Horner businesses

SANFORD — A large fire late last week has left a decades-old Sanford structure in ruins. The fire, according to Sanford Fire Department Chief Wayne Barber, destroyed a building at 936 N. Horner Blvd. that housed three businesses. Barber said officers for Monarch mental health, Freedom Income Tax Service and an insurance company were leveled by the multi-floor blaze, which was reported at about 12:30 a.m. Friday. Nobody was hurt in the fire,

and the investigation is ongoing into what touched off the flames, firefighters say. “It just got up in the roof areas and we just couldn’t get to it,” Barber said. “When it was spotted, it had already had a good head start.” Barber said the building had been a mainstay on that section of Horner Boulevard, once serving as an early office for local convenience store company The Pantry. Firefighters were forced to call in aerial support to contain the blaze, Barber said, remaining at the scene until

breath of fresh air.” Tramway students are taught the same basic curriculum as students on the traditional calendar, and they are in school the same number of days. But instead of having one long summer break, the calendar is divided into nine-week quarters with three-week breaks, or intersessions, between quarters. “I like it because when you need a break, you get a break,” Tramway fifth-grader Thomas Rouse said. Parents who decide Tramway is the right fit for their children have to fill out enrollment forms in late January or early February. Tramway often has a waiting list because more students want to

SANFORD — Lee County commissioners voted unanimously Monday to ax a new ethics guideline that would have targeted at least one current board member. The paragraph in the still in-the-works ethics code called for a ban on commissioners holding Shook office in a political party at the same time as they serve on the board, stating that serving in both offices might place the commissioner in a “position where they could serve the party over the good of the entire county.” If passed, the text would impact Commissioner Linda Shook,

SANFORD — The Lee County Board of Education will kick off its monthly meeting today with the induction of three new board members and the announcement of a new board chairman. During the meeting, the board is expected to pick a new chairman to replace sitting board member Bill Tatum, who announced earlier this year he would not seek reappointment. Before that, Susie Thomas, the Lee County Clerk of Court, will swear in Mark Akinosho, John Bonardi and Linda Smith. “They’ll have their families with them and stand, and there’s an oath that the board

Almanac Today is Tuesday, July 20, the 201st day of 2010. There are 164 days left in the year. This day in history: On July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin became the first men to walk on the moon after landing their lunar module. In 1810, Bogota, the capital of Nueva Granada (present-day Colombia), declared independence from Spanish rule. In 1861, the Congress of the Confederate States began holding sessions 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 1944, an attempt by a group of German officials to assassinate Adolf Hitler with a bomb failed as the explosion at Hitler’s Rastenburg headquarters only wounded the Nazi leader. President Franklin D. Roosevelt was nominated for an unprecedented fourth term of office at the Democratic convention in Chicago. In 1954, the Geneva Accords divided Vietnam into northern and southern entities. In 1960, a pair of Polaris missiles were fired from the submerged USS George Washington off Cape Canaveral, Fla. at a target more than 1,100 miles away. In 1976, America’s Viking 1 robot spacecraft made a successful, first-ever landing on Mars.

HEADACHES Within a matter of several weeks, the treatment my son received at Ammons Chiropractic ended his severe headaches. All through childhood, my son experienced occasional headaches, usually occurring suddenly, and sometimes severe enough that sleep provided the only relief. At age 15, he began to have headaches more frequently, sometimes several times in a day, and three to four times a week. Conventional medical blood tests revealed no clues, an eye exam and an MRI showed nothing abnormal, but the headaches continued. My son could feel a difference seconds after the ďŹ rst treatment, and within two weeks experienced no more of the debilitating head pain. He also has peace of mind instead of fear of a headache striking at any time. After seeing the beneďŹ ts to my son, I also received orthogonal treatment for neck pain and tightness, a sensation of “crimpingâ€? that I never seemed able to stretch out, and which had plagued me for probably 25 years. One treatment was all it took to relieve the neck tightness – and after a year, my neck remains comfortable and correctly aligned. Ammons Chiropractic personnel are consummate professionals, careful, methodical, gentle and absolutely committed to seeking solutions. Judith Edmonds Although we cannot guarantee results or predict how fast a patient will respond, Atlas Orthogonal care is profoundly effective in treating these conditions. Why suffer when help may be just a phone call away? Call not for an examination to see if speciďŹ c upper cervical care might beneďŹ t you.

Raven Rock experience enhanced Our View Issue: The opening of a new visitors’ center at Raven Rock State Park on Saturday

Our stance: Though the park is already home to a natural wonder, the center should do nothing but enhance tourists’ experience there

The Raven Rock State Park experience has improved dramatically with a new visitors’ center open at the Harnett County landmark. With exhibits and displays and information about the park, Raven Rock Park Superintendent Kristen Brigner notes, “It really gives people a good starting point. It ties the whole experience together for the visitor.” The park obviously is a popular place to visit, as evident by its 47 percent jump from attendance from 2008 to 2009. Charlie Peek, public information officer for North Carolina State Parks, said, “It’s a tremendous park, and suddenly it has a new face. It has a new personality. It’s

coming into its own. For all the people that have been connected with the park over the years, it’s very gratifying.” It is a tremendous park and a tremendous attraction for both Central Carolina area residents and visitors alike. And Raven Rock is just one of the various outdoor recreation gems that can be found in the Central Carolina area. Jordan Lake State Park is another that draws much attention. And, it’s hard to beat the picturesque San-Lee Park, which is so ably operated locally. And there’s the Deep River and the Cape Fear River. There’s also the local Old Gilliam Mill Park, which is operated

by a non-profit organization. Then there’s the House in the Horseshoe property, which is a State Historic Site. There are other outdoors sites, no doubt, within our Central Carolina area that are wonderful places to visit. We should consider ourselves fortunate to have such a plethora of outdoor wonders that give us the opportunity to enjoy nature and explore our surroundings. Raven Rock State Park is a nature wonder, which has now become even better with its new visitor center. What was a great experience now becomes an even greater experience.

G

auging the historical significance of the moment isn’t an easy task. So, perhaps the political upheaval and scandal in North Carolina over the past five or six years will turn into just a footnote in the state’s political history, blotted out by future events. I don’t think so. Criminal investigations that send a state House speaker off to prison, lead to the indictment of a top lieutenant of a former governor and put that former governor under threat of indictment are not historical norms for North Carolina. That’s not to suggest that politics and scandal of one sort or the other haven’t always gone together. ... Until recently, state contracting was where political scandal usually reared its head in North Carolina. That’s no longer the case because of shifts in money and power. It’s no coincidence that Jim Black became just the second House speaker to serve more than two terms, the first Democratic speaker to oversee a modern-day, multi-million dollar fund-raising operation, and the first to be sent to prison. It may be no coincidence that Mike Easley was just the second governor to enjoy veto power and the first to use it, and is now the subject of a serious criminal investigation. These scandals have only happened as political power has become more concentrated among the governor, House speaker and Senate president pro tem. They’ve only happened as the money moving through legislative campaigns has gone from a dribble to a torrent. Obviously, some people have performed better under this test of power than Black or Easley. That doesn’t mean that the test hasn’t become tougher. But the test could also become easier in the future. Defenders of Black and Easley would say that one of the reasons that they ran into trouble is because the rules weren’t so clear. Whether you agree with that assessment or not, prior to 2005, North Carolina’s laws to ensure that elected and appointed officials kept it out of the ditch didn’t contemplate six-figure legislative campaigns and modern-day fund-raising operations in which legislative leaders raised millions. Three separate batches of ethics reform laws passed by the legislature over the last five years are an inevitable response to that money and the need to draw brighter lines in the fray around it. State lawmakers passed the latest ethics reforms in the wee hours of Saturday morning, just before adjourning for the year. Like their earlier efforts, the legislation will make for better government. It makes criminal penalties tougher for exceeding donation limits by giving in the name of an employee or someone else. It requires that more fund-raising activities be disclosed. It allows the public to know more about state worker raises, promotions or firings. The latest laws draw those clearer lines. And they do something else: They seek to restore some equilibrium to a state of politics that’s been missing it for some time.

The life of Stalin I

n 1931, during the liquidation of millions of kulaks, Josef Stalin granted an audience to George Bernard Shaw and Lady Nancy Astor. Astor bluntly asked: “When are you going to stop killing people?” To which Stalin replied: “When it is no longer necessary.” Stalin found it necessary to the end of his days. He was a hardworking dictator, often in the office 16 hours a day. It takes considerable effort to cause the deaths of perhaps 20 million human beings. And death was Stalin’s primary political instrument. Statues and busts of Stalin were once mass-produced in Russia as icons of a political cult. Few can now be found on public display outside his hometown of Gori, Georgia, where some people remain perversely proud of a local boy made bad. But a newly cast memorial bust of Stalin now stands at the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford, Va., accompanying sculptures of Franklin D. Roosevelt, Charles de Gaulle and Winston Churchill. A plaque recounts Stalin’s practice of “eliminating” his opponents. But Stalin would doubtlessly be pleased by the likeness and its setting. Others are not so pleased. The Bedford County Board of Supervisors, the local congressman and the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation have called for the bust’s removal. Americans have sometimes viewed Stalin with more ambivalence than, say, Adolf Hitler. For a period during World War II, “Uncle Joe” was an ally. Roosevelt sent about $11 billion worth of war materiel to Stalin under Lend-Lease. But Stalin had previously been an ally of Hitler as well, both inspiring and admiring Nazi methods. Following Hitler’s purge in 1934 known as the “night of the long knives,” Stalin told a meeting of the Politburo: “Some fellow that Hitler. Knows how to treat his political opponents.” One reason that Stalin has sometimes gotten more favorable treatment than Hitler is the conviction, mainly found on the American left, that communism is less evil than fascism. Stalin may have been a monster, but at least he was not a genocidal racist. His methods were barbaric; but the goals of Soviet socialism — economic equality and justice — were nobler than National Socialism. This attitude once turned some Western leftists into Stalin apologists. The durable belief in communist good intentions led, according to historian Robert Conquest, to “feminists applauding women who were bowed down by hundredweights of coal, Quakers applauding tank parades.” But Stalin authored racial atrocities of his own. Historian Andrew Roberts notes: “Stalin also committed seven major acts of racial genocide, against the Ukrainians in 1930-32, the Poles, Balts, Moldavians and Bessarabians in 1939-41 and 1944-45, the Volga Germans in 1941, the Crimean Tatars

in 1943, the Chechens and the Inguches in 1944.” Stalin and Hitler were moral equals in nearly every respect — the slave labor camps, the mass graves, the night arrests, the sadistic and sycophantic circle of enablers. Stalin added forced famine — in which millions of lives were taken like a scythe takes wheat — along with show trials and purges. Stalin’s lieutenants would act out for his entertainment the pleadings of old colleagues about to be executed. “The greatest delight,” Stalin once said, “is to mark one’s enemy, prepare everything, avenge oneself thoroughly, and then go to sleep.” The main difference between Hitler and Stalin is that one lost a war and ended with a bullet in his head. The other gets a bust at the National D-Day Memorial. Officials at the Bedford memorial respond to the controversy with typical museum-speak about their “educational mission” to examine “global contexts and consequences” while being a “catalyst for serious discourse.” The former president of the memorial compared criticism of the Stalin bust to criticism of a statue depicting FDR in a wheelchair. It is extraordinary how people dedicated to the preservation of history can so effectively trivialize history by denying its emotional and moral content. How would a Pole whose father or grandfather was murdered in the Katyn Forest massacre be educated by walking past a memorial bust of Stalin? How is Russian sacrifice in World War II honored by the image of a man who treated Russia to endless, unnecessary sacrifice? For most Americans who fought in World War II, it was not merely a historical event; it was a cause. They temporarily shared an alliance with Stalin, but they fought for principles he hated. His presence at their memorial is not educational; it is offensive.

Letters to the Editor Nightmare in the Gulf isn’t over just yet To the Editor: The fragile Louisiana coast has endured so much in the past five years — horrifying death from hurricane-driven flood waters and desolation of entire beach communities. The summer of 2010 was going to be different. The New Orleans Saints had won the Super Bowl. The rare mangroves were beginning to grow again and protect their shy, unseen tenants. Louisiana finally had enough surplus in the budget to rebuild the ravaged beaches flattened by Hurricane Ivan. At last, the Cajun music could again lift the spirits and proclaim the rebirth of South Louisiana. The nightmare of the past five years was officially over. Then more than 80 days ago, the unimaginable happened — an oil platform off the Gulf coast exploded and burst into flames. Men jumped into the water, praying for safety and instead found a fiery death. The rig crumbled, livelihoods were wiped away and families destroyed. Lurking two miles below — the worst was yet to bubble to the surface. Oil was now silently streaming up towards the gleaming coast. In the aftermath of the disaster, millions of gallons were now seeping quietly upward and crawling across the Gulf of Mexico. Without a sound, the oil’s long spindly fingers formed a death grip on the fragile coastline, each minute drawing a few inches closer. The lack of personal responsibility exhibited to the world by British Petroleum is purely criminal and the United States government should respond accordingly. British Petroleum — the leafy green logo on all of their gas and grocery marts even symbolizes Mother Nature, how convenient. I spent a lot of time today researching British Petroleum and their corporate philosophy. The chief executive officer, Tony Hayward, claims on the British Petroleum website, “BP delivers safe, responsible and reliable operating activities. We also create a platform for sustainable improvement, allowing BP to capture additional value through efficiency. Ultimately, this delivers sustainable excellence in operating.” I have to choke on the fact this company can even present this on their current website considering their involvement in this disaster. There seems to be no sense of remorse or resolution to the crime, only business as usual. I am more than angry, not only at British Petroleum, but at the United States government. If the Potomac River coastline and historical cherry trees were about to be decimated, would President Obama react? If the blue shell crab men off the coast of Maryland all lost their livelihood, would that hit closer to home? What does it take for this administration to recognize a national threat? Unlike the 911 tragedy, the disastrous oil spill gave us fair warning. The most powerful nation in the world has the technology to save the Louisiana coastline, but we sat, watched and waited. This country has relied on a foreign conglomerate to save our own natural shores. Where are our elected officials and this country’s personal responsibility to protect our own coastline? The Democratic system was designed to insure chosen officials would represent the needs of the American people. Until those elected officials fully understand their elected responsibility, the black oil continues to creep silently, inch by inch, toward into the coast — where the inhabitants believe the nightmare is over.

pointed that someone was listening to political advice from the peanut gallery,” Shook said. Lee County Manager John Crumpton declined to name the commissioner or commissioners who suggested adding the provision to the ethics code, although board Chairman Richard Hayes, a Democrat, indicated Monday that he supported the wording. The ethics code, which touches on a variety of potential conflicts for commissioners and lays out plans in case commissioners call for disciplinary action, is required by state statute, Crumpton said. It includes orders that commissioners uphold state law, avoid improprieties and conduct public business in an open forum. He said state lawmakers

did not recommend that counties include a paragraph banning members from serving offices in a political party. Shook was voted in as GOP chairwoman after she was elected to the Board of Commissioners, members said. Hayes said he believed the language was “no reflection on” Shook, but a necessary precaution to avoid the perception that commissioners are implementing the will of a political party instead of county voters. “You are here to serve all the people of the county,” Hayes told Shook Monday. “I cannot help but believe that your thought processes are sometimes driven by the party of which you are chairman.” Shook blasted Hayes’ argument as “unconsti-

tutional,” adding that the board would be circumventing the voters that put her in office if they approved such a policy. “You’re speaking for 33 million registered voters in Lee County,” Shook told Hayes. “That’s a big chunk to chew off.” Hayes eventually voted with the board to remove the provision after several commissioners, including Democrats, cited reservations. “I believe that anybody, no matter what they do, should be allowed to be a county commissioner,” said Commissioner Jamie Kelly, a Democrat. Another Democrat, Commissioner Robert Reives, said he has not heard calls from the general public to place such restrictions on commissioners.

enroll than the school can accommodate. “I think it creates a positive atmosphere that parents choose for their children to come here,� Assistant Principal Andrea Sloan said. In her experience, Sloan said the year-round calendar contributes to less burnout among teachers and students because of the more frequent breaks and better retention of the previous year’s material because of the shorter breaks. The intercessions also allow students to learn any material they might have missed during the school year rather than waiting to attend summer school. “During the intersessions, the kids get the opportunity to play catch-up so they don’t get too far behind,� Sloan said. Most of the students who attend Tramway Elementary remain at the school from kindergarten through fifth grade. Beeker said occasionally it can be a struggle at first if a student has to go back to school while a sibling on the traditional calendar stays at home. But for the most part, her students don’t complain about it. “The kids are really excited to be back, and I love that,� Beeker said. Fifth-grader Abri Gross, who has attended Tramway since kindergarten and has a sister in first grade at the school, said she didn’t mind having a shorter summer vacation because she was ready to see her friends again. “Me and my sister just love the schedule and our teachers,� Gross said. The year-round schedule with frequent breaks also appeals to the students’ parents. Tina Har-

MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) — A former North Carolina youth basketball coach faces prosecution in New York on charges he had sex with a 16year-old autistic girl who played on his team. Freddie Lamont Wilson was released from a North Carolina prison in February after pleading guilty in 2009 to having sex with a minor. He has been sent to New York’s Long Island to face charges related to the

same case. Nassau County prosecutors say he had sex with the teenager while in Elmont, N.Y., in 2008 for a basketball tournament. The 62-year-old Wilson is being held without bail following his arraignment Friday on third-degree rape charges. Wilson’s defense attorney could not immediately be reached for comment on Monday.

Half of state-chartered banks ‘troubled’

Lottery sets records for sales, education funds

Marshall has less than $200k in campaign cash

RALEIGH (AP) — New weekly jackpot drawings and more retail locations helped North Carolina Education Lottery ticket sales increase by 10 percent last year compared to the year before. The lottery said Monday sales grew to more than $1.4 billion during the 12 months ending June 30. The record sales helped send more than $419 million in net profits to education programs. That’s also the highest annual transfer since the first tickets were sold in 2006. The lottery began selling tickets for the multistate Mega Millions game in January, with drawings on Tuesday and Friday nights. North Carolina already participated in the Powerball drawings.

RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Elaine Marshall has less than $200,000 in campaign cash. That’s $6 million less than her Republican opponent, Sen. Richard Burr. Marshall’s campaign said in its filing to the Federal Election Commission that she had $163,000 in cash on hand at the end of June. The reporting period ended just days after she won a June 22 runoff for the Democratic nomination. Marshall spokesman Sam Swartz said Monday the nomination battle forced the campaign to drain funds. He says the campaign feels good about the fundraising since she won the runoff.

Medical-device maker plans new warehouse

2 NC-based Marines killed in southern Afghanistan

FOUR OAKS (AP) — A global medical device maker plans to expand in North Carolina, building a new East Coast distribution center in return for a promised state gift of $600,000. Gov. Beverly Perdue’s office said Monday that Becton Dickinson will add nearly 190 jobs by 2015. The Franklin Lakes, N.J., company would pay an average salary of nearly $29,000 a year plus benefits, below Johnston County’s average annual wage of $31,000.

CAMP LEJEUNE (AP) — Department of Defense officials say two North Carolinabased Marines have been killed in Afghanistan. The Department of Defense said Monday that 21year-old Cpl. Dave M. Santos of Rota, Marianas Islands of the Pacific, and 27-year-old Staff Sgt. Justus S. Bartelt of Polo, Ill., died on July 16 in Helmand province. Santos and Bartelt were assigned to 2nd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division at Camp Lejeune.

CHARLOTTE (AP) — Nearly half of the 86 banks chartered in North Carolina and overseen by state regulators are troubled institutions hurt by sliding real estate values, overdue loans and weak loan demand, regulators said. The state-chartered banks considered troubled have increased to 40 from 23 in October, The Charlotte Observer reported Monday. Regulators are barred from naming troubled banks or their ratings to prevent a run on deposits that would worsen their ability to resolve problems. But seven state-chartered banks are identified by the state banking commission and federal regulators’ records as having significantly deteriorated financial conditions. One of those most-distressed banks, The Bank of Currituck, was bought Friday by a Virginia bank in a deal expected to close this fall.

State-chartered banks are typically community, midsize and regional banks. North Carolina’s largest is Winston-Salem-based BB&T Corp., which passed the federal government’s worst-case scenario stress test last year and repaid federal bailout dollars. National firms such as Bank of America are not regulated by the state and so would not be on its troubled list. Since the credit crisis began in 2008, two North Carolina have failed. Both happened last year in Wilmington. Deposit insurance protected customers from losing money, although investors were wiped out, state Banking Commissioner Joseph Smith said. “If you’re over the insurance deposit limits, get under them,� Smith advised bank customers. “If you’re under, you’re safe.� The last time North Carolina had so many troubled banks was 1990, when 18 of 44 were

on the state regulators’ watch list. That was 41 percent of the state-chartered tally, compared with 47 percent now. Just one bank failed at the time. Harry Davis, an economist for the North Carolina Bankers Association, said he doesn’t expect a large number of banks to fail. “The reason there are so many problem banks right now isn’t because they were poorly managed,� said Davis, who is also an Appalachian State University banking professor. “It’s because the absolute bottom has fallen out of the economy.� The most troubled banks are all smaller and were most likely to concentrated their lending nearby. The banks also are less likely than large banks to have revenue from other services, such as fees from investment banking, to make up for consumer and small business slumps.

For example, Bank of Granite is concentrated in Caldwell and Catawba counties, which have been hurt by job losses in the furniture and textile industries. The bank was once praised by Warren Buffett as one of the nation’s best-run community banks, but it has operated since August under a regulatory order to take specific steps to improve its financial health. Some states have seen many more banks fail. Georgia has accounted for 41 of the 288 failures nationwide since Jan. 1, 2008, according to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. Two South Carolina lenders failed on Friday. First National Bank of The South in Spartanburg and Woodlands Bank, a thrift near Hilton Head, brought the state’s tally of failed banks to three. All were federally chartered, including the Myrtle Beach bank that failed in April.

BENTONVILLE

National group hopes to widen battlefield BENTONVILLE — A national preservation group is trying to raise money to expand the site of the Civil War’s last major battle. The Civil War Preservation Trust is prepared to buy about 240 acres around the site in the Johnston County community of Bentonville and add it to the 1,350acre state-managed site, The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Monday. The 1865 battlefield covered about 6,000 acres. More than 80,000

troops fought at the battlefield where Union Gen. William T. Sherman defeated the forces of Confederate Gen. Joseph E. Johnston. Sherman’s troops had burned their way across Georgia and were marching to capture an important railroad junction at Goldsboro. Confederate General Robert E. Lee’s surrender ended the war less than three weeks later. The Bentonville site is ideal for preservation because it is well-managed and historically

significant, said Mary Koik, a spokeswoman for the trust. “It’s a site where there is that willingness in the community, among the landowners, to see it protected,� she said. The new property will include land where troops fought on the first and third days of the battle, including woods, farmlands and fields, said Donny Taylor, manager of the historic site. The trust has signed contracts with landowners to buy four tracts at Bentonville and is

waiting on the money to make the buys, Koik said. The planned purchases are the kickoff for a larger, $2.2 million North Carolina Legacy Campaign the trust hopes will spur donations from its 55,000 members. A federal grant program will match all donations. The money would be used for land purchases instead of overhead costs, Koik said, though in most cases donations will be spread among North Carolina property purchases rather than strictly at Bentonville.

Oil, gas leaking again from well cap

NEW ORLEANS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Oil and gas are leaking from the cap on BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ruptured oil well but the cork will stay in place for now, the federal governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s point man on the spill said Monday. The leaks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which started late Sunday night â&#x20AC;&#x201D; arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t â&#x20AC;&#x153;consequential,â&#x20AC;? retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen said, relieving concerns that they are a sign the cap is creating too much pressure underground. That could mean the cap thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stopped oil since Thursday would have to be opened. Allen said BP could continue evaluating the cap and keeping it shut, for at least another 24 hours. He said BP must keep rigorously monitoring for any signs that this test could worsen the overall situation. If there was a quick rise in pressure, the well would be vented immediately to keep from creating leaks deep underground, Allen said. The next step isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t clear. Allen seemed to budge on his previous stance that the cap would eventually be hooked up to a mile-long pipe to pump

That would mean flooding oil back into the sea for a few days. Unless larger problems develop, he said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not inclined to loosen the cap. But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also not sold on leaving the cap in place until the well is permanently plugged, which is what BP wants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not prepared to say the well is shut in until the relief well is done. There are too many uncertainties,â&#x20AC;? he said Monday. The government and BP spent two days disagreeing over what to do with the undersea ma-

chinery holding back the gusher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had some concerns ... about commitments that BP had made that we did not feel that they were adequately living up to in terms of that monitoring,â&#x20AC;? White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said earlier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was dealt with last night on a call that lasted late into the evening.â&#x20AC;? The company very much wants to avoid a repeat of millions of gallons of oil spewing from the blown well for weeks, watched live across the country on underwater

video. If the valves are kept closed, as BP wants, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible that no more oil will leak into the Gulf of Mexico. Work on a permanent plug is moving steadily, with crews drilling into the side of the ruptured well from deep underground. By next week, they could start blasting in mud and cement to block off the well for good. But the government is worried that the cap on the well is causing oil and gas to leak out elsewhere, which could make the sea floor unstable and cause the well to collapse. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why federal officials want to pump the crude to ships on the surface. That would require opening the well for a few days to relieve pressure before the pipes could be hooked up, letting millions more gallons of oil spill out in the interim. Allen said other options are also being developed to control the oil until it can be plugged from below, including pumping mud from the top of the cap. The idea is similar to the failed top kill plan that couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t overcome the pressure of the geyser streaming up.

Clinton urges review of Lockerbie bomberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s release WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Obama administration has asked the governments of Scotland and Britain to review the decision last summer to release the Libyan convicted in the Lockerbie airliner bombing. In letters to U.S. lawmakers, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said the U.S. was encouraging the Scottish and British authorities to review the circumstances leading to the release of Abdel Baset al-Megrahi. Four senators wrote Clinton last week, questioning whether oil giant BP played a behind-thescenes role in the decision. In her response, Clinton wrote that she remained deeply troubled by the Libyanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That al-Megrahi is living out his remaining days outside of Scottish custody is an affront to the victimsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; families, the memories of those killed in the Lockerbie bombing, and to all of those who worked tirelessly to ensure justice was served,â&#x20AC;? Clinton wrote.

Abortion groups denounce decision to deny coverage WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Abortion foes have won a round in the first test of how President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health care law will be applied to the politically charged issue. Meanwhile, traditional allies of the administration are grumbling about a decision to ban most abortion coverage in insurance pools for those unable to purchase health care on their own.

The Catholic bishops â&#x20AC;&#x153;welcome this new policy,â&#x20AC;? said Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, although he added the organization remains concerned that other parts of the health care overhaul will promote abortion. NARAL Pro-Choice America called it â&#x20AC;&#x153;inexplicable and wrongheaded.â&#x20AC;? Abortion politics flared up after at least one state â&#x20AC;&#x201D; New Mexico â&#x20AC;&#x201D; initially decided to allow coverage of elective abortion in a new federally funded program to provide coverage for high-risk uninsured people turned away by private carriers.

Insiders get gun permits for access to Texas Capitol AUSTIN, Texas (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Everyone from lobbyists to lawyers and journalists is rushing to get permits to carry guns inside the Texas Capitol, where legislators already often tote pistols in boots and purses or stow them away inside their desks. A unique loophole in a new security procedure means a gun permit is like a special-access pass into the domed building, allowing people who are certified to carry a gun to bypass lines at the metal detectors that were set up after a shooting incident earlier this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nobody wants to be the one standing in line behind three hundred kids wearing the same colored T-shirt,â&#x20AC;? said University of Texas political scientist Jim Henson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to get in and out really quick and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be choke points, well, people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to have to deal with that.â&#x20AC;?

Lohan faces Hilton treatment in jail By DERRIK J. LANG AP Entertainment Writer

LYNWOOD, Calif. — Inside a nondescript two-story building next to a busy freeway in an industrial neighborhood far removed from Hollywood is where Lindsay Lohan will likely spend several weeks as part of her punishment for violating her DUI probation. Lohan is slated to begin her sentence Tuesday at the bleak, 16-year-old Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, Calif., just south of downtown Los Angeles. The actress would be housed in the 2,200-bed facility’s special needs unit, where she would live in isolation for her own safety. Thanks to jail overcrowding and a state program that credits inmates for good behavior, nonviolent female misdemeanor offenders such as Lohan typically serve only about 25 percent of their sentences, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Steve Whitmore. That means Lohan’s 90-day sentence could be reduced to about three weeks and she could be out of jail in time for the premiere of “Machete,” the action-thriller opening Sept. 3 that stars Lohan as a nun.

The interior of a typical jail cell at the Century Regional Detention Facility in the Los Angeles suburb of Lynwood, Calif, where Lindsay Lohan will serve her sentence. It won’t be Lohan’s first time inside the lockup, which has served as Los Angeles County’s only all-female jail since 2006. The actress spent about 84 minutes there in 2007 for a drunken driving offense, reduced from her already trimmed daylong sentence because of the overpopulation issue. She was searched, fingerprinted and placed in a holding cell but allowed to keep wearing her street clothes. This time, with a much longer sentence, the 24year-old “Mean Girls” and “Georgia Rule” star will most certainly have to trade her sparkly Pamella Roland jumpsuit — or whatever ensemble she decides to wear going in — for a jail-issued orange one. Lohan will also be

asked to arrive emptyhanded and must surrender any jewelry. Besides the jumpsuit, Lohan will also be given a set of simple toiletries that all inmates receive: toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, comb, deodorant, shampoo and shaving implements. Paris Hilton received one for her own secluded 23-day stay in 2007 for reckless driving charges, according to Whitmore. Like other inmates in the special-needs area, Lohan will be served her meals in her cell and will be allowed outside the 12-foot-by-8-foot space for at least an hour each day. With only a public pay phone at her disposal, the frequent micro-blogger will likely be silent on

Twitter during her incarceration. Cell phones and computers aren’t allowed inside. Alexis Neiers, the reality TV starlet from E!’s “Pretty Wild,” is currently serving a six-month sentence in Lynwood after being implicated in a break-in at Orlando Bloom’s home. Neiers’ mother, Andrea Arlington, has criticized the jail’s conditions on Twitter, suggesting the water made her daughter sick and that Neiers wasn’t receiving items ordered from the commissary. Neiers’ lawyer, Jeffrey Rubenstein, said the 19year-old aspiring model had a difficult time at first adjusting to her solitary life, from eating “really bad food” like noodles and apples to being woken up throughout the night. Rubenstein, who visited Neiers last Tuesday, said the folks inside the facility are buzzing about the potential arrival of Lohan. Other celebs who have been housed at the jail include Daryl Hannah, who spent a few hours there in 2006 after being picked up for trespassing during a tree-sitting demonstration. Nicole Richie and Khloe Kardashian both spent less than a day there in 2007 and 2008 for their respective drunken driving charges.

Zsa Zsa Gabor recovering from hip surgery LOS ANGELES (AP) — Zsa Zsa Gabor’s husband thinks she’ll be watching “Jeopardy” again in no time. Prince Frederic von Anhalt, the 93year-old actress’ eccentric husband, Gabor told a throng of reporters gathered outside their Bel-Air home Monday that Gabor underwent successful surgery to replace her right hip, which she broke over the weekend while watching her favorite game show. He said she tumbled to the floor when she tried to answer the phone. “It’s just bad luck,” von Anhalt said. “It could happen to anyone.” Gabor, who has to use a wheelchair after being partially paralyzed in a 2002 car accident, was in surgery for 3 1/2 hours at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, according to von Anhalt. He said she remained heavily sedated but in good spirits Monday and would likely be recuperating in the hospital for four or five days before returning home. The 65-year-old socialite entered California governor’s race as an independent in the primary but has not yet filed to run in the general election. His platform includes legalizing marijuana and prostitution and lifting the ban on Cuban cigars, then taxing them all. He said he would hold off

on his campaign if Gabor’s condition does not improve. “If my wife doesn’t recover the way I would like to see it, he said, “then I will skip it.” His 1986 marriage to Gabor was his seventh and her ninth. Before von Anhalt met her, he worked as a bank clerk, screenwriter and sauna manager, acquiring his royal title along the way. After his parents died, he said he was adopted by a German princess who gave him the title of Prince Frederic von Anhalt of Munich, the Duke of Saxony.

Cherry Jones to make Broadway return in Shaw play NEW YORK (AP) — Tonywinning actress Cherry Jones returns to Broadway in a revival of George Bernard Shaw’s “Mrs. Warren’s Profession.” The controversial 19thcentury family drama examines the tension between a mother and daughter after a family secret is revealed. It is regarded as one of Shaw’s greatest plays. Jones plays Kitty Warren, a woman forced to make terrible sacrifices for her family. Golden-Globe winner Sally Hawkins makes her Broadway debut as Kitty’s daughter, Vivie.

Teenage singer Charice gets Botox for ‘Glee’ debut MANILA, Philippines (AP) — Baby-faced teen singer Charice says she prepared for her debut on the hit Fox TV show “Glee” by getting Botox and an anti-aging procedure “to look fresh on camera,” but her publicist said the Botox was for muscle pain, not for cosmetic reasons. The 18-year-old Filipino singer with a booming voice, who recently released her self-titled debut album, saw her career skyrocket after appearing on Ellen DeGeneres’ and Oprah Winfrey’s talk shows. She underwent a 30-minute Thermage skintightening procedure and Botox injections to make her “naturally round face” more narrow, celebrity cosmetic surgeon Vicki Belo told ABSCBN television. However, Charice’s publicist, Liz Rosenberg, said in an e-mail Monday the Botox was “absolutely not cosmetic,” and added said the treatment was for muscle pain in her jaw.

the Senate act on the legislation â&#x20AC;&#x201D; after a vote already had been scheduled for Tuesday â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and blasting Republicans for the holdup. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The same people who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any problem spending hundreds of billions of dollars on tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans are now saying we shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t offer relief to middle-class Americans,â&#x20AC;? Obama said. Republicans say they do favor the benefits but are insisting that they be paid for with spending cuts elsewhere in the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $3.7 trillion budget. After initially feeling heat when a lone GOP senator, Jim Bunning of Kentucky, briefly blocked a

benefits extension back in February, the GOP has grown increasingly comfortable in opposing the legislation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What the president isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t telling the American people is that many of us in the Senate are fighting to make sure our children and grandchildren arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buried under a mountain of debt,â&#x20AC;? said Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we are going to extend unemployment benefits, then letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s do it without adding to our record debt.â&#x20AC;?

Though the economy is said to be slowly recovering, the jobless rate remains painfully high at 9.5 percent. And Obama, putting a human face on those hard times, brought three unemployed people to the Rose Garden with him on Monday. An increasing number of people, however, have been out of work for so long that they have exhausted their eligibility for benefits, which ends at 99 weeks in most states. This measure wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help them.

Abducted girl placed with foster family LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A 7-year-old girl who was snatched from California as a toddler and raised in Arizona has learned her true name and was being given therapy to cope with the trauma of leaving the only family she remembers, an investigator said Monday. Amber Nicklas was placed with an undisclosed California foster family until authorities can determine where she finally will live, Los Angeles County sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Capt. Patrick Maxwell said. He had no immediate word on how the girl was acclimating after being taken weeping last week from the home of a Phoenix couple who run a palm-reading business. The family called her Sandra.

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The stock market is fulfilling predictions of an uneasy trek through second-quarter earnings season. Stocks ended a choppy day Monday with a moderate rebound that sent the Dow Jones industrial average up 56 points. Analysts said the advance was due in part to investorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; regaining their optimism about earnings. But that change in sentment was fleeting: After the market closed, IBM reported revenue that fell short of expectations, and investors were back to selling in after-hours trading. IBM Corp. did issue a more upbeat forecast for its 2010 earnings that in the past would have lifted stocks. But with investors increasingly on edge about signs of trouble in the economy, many decided not to share in IBMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more confident view of the future.

Democratic state Assemblyman Dave Jones, who is running for state insurance commissioner, said some of the same practices being corrected by the recently enacted federal health care overhaul are being used by companies that issue pet insurance. Jones has introduced a bill, AB2411, that would make pet insurers post detailed information on their websites so consumers can see exactly what is covered.

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; With a new face and a 60th vote for breaking a Republican filibuster, Senate Democrats are preparing to restore jobless checks for 2.5 million people whose benefits ran out during a congressional standoff over deficit spending. President Barack Obama says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to do whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right.â&#x20AC;? But first, Obama and his Democratic allies are pressing for maximum political advantage, blaming Republicans for an impasse that halted unemployment checks averaging $309 a week for those whose eligibility had expired. Obama launched a fresh salvo on Monday, demanding that

BRAVES’ VENTERS, COX SUSPENDED BY MLB NEW YORK (AP) — Atlanta Braves pitcher Jonny Venters has been suspended for four games and fined by Major League Baseball for throwing consecutive pitches at Milwaukee’s Prince Fielder last weekend. Baseball’s vice president in charge of discipline Bob Watson also said Monday that Braves manager Bobby Cox has been suspended for one game. Cox will serve the suspension during Tuesday’s game against San Diego. Venters will start his penalty Tuesday unless the players’ association appeals. Both were ejected for their actions Saturday. Cox’s ejection was his record 156th and third this season.

NHL HURRICANES SIGN NASH TO ENTRY-LEVEL DEAL RALEIGH (AP) — The Carolina Hurricanes have signed center Riley Nash to a three-year contract. The entry-level deal announced Monday will pay Nash $550,000 next season, $600,000 in 2011-12 and $700,000 in 2012-13 at the NHL level. He will earn $65,000 per season if he plays in the American Hockey League. The 21-year-old Nash completed his third season at Cornell, finishing with 12 goals and 23 assists.

TENNIS WTA: SERENA MAY MISS OPEN AFTER SURGERY (AP) — Serena Williams is questionable for the U.S. Open because of her recent foot injury, according to the WTA Tour. Williams cut her right foot on broken glass at a restaurant shortly after winning Wimbledon. The tour said last week she needed surgery and would miss three tournaments leading up to the Open. On Monday, tour spokesman Andrew Walker said Williams is questionable for the final Grand Slam of the year. Because of the injury, Williams is missing the entire World Team Tennis season with the Washington Kastles. Her team said she cut the bottom of her foot and needed stitches.

TITANS, JOHNSON AGREE TO REVISED DEAL

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Chris Johnson’s agent says the running back and the Tennessee Titans have agreed on a revised deal that should ensure he reports with the rest of the team for training camp. Agent Joel Segal confirmed the deal Monday in a text to The Associated Press. The deal pays Johnson incentives this season that he was due to be paid in 2012. It’s not the minimum $30 million guarantee The AP 2009 Offensive Player of the Year says he wanted after becoming just the sixth back to run for at least 2,000 yards.

hen a major golf championship begins with its earliest tee time on Thursday, one of two things is going to happen. Either a world class player will move up a rung of golf’s elite, or some middling player of modestto-little staying power is going to rob the game of further glory after four days of unexpected success. One or the other. This season of major championships has proven to be the norm in golf over the past few

years. After a stirring Masters victory by one of the game’s greats, Phil Mickelson, players with substandard Q ratings have taken the U.S. Open (Graeme McDowell) and now, after lapping the field at St. Andrews, it’s Louis Oosthuizen at the Open Championship. Such major mediocrity is nothing new. Since 2003, 31 major championships have been played in nearly eight full golf seasons. Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson have won nine of them — a whopping 29 percent. Pad-

raig Harrington, the one player outside of Lefty and Tiger in the last five years to forge his legacy by virtue of major wins, has won three championships. That single triumvirate boasts 12 major wins. Beyond a third major by another great, Vijay Singh (2004 PGA Championship), and two fluky wins by Angel Cabrera, there has been little separation from what is a “major winner” and a “fledgling, journeyman pro”.

Reality sets in for Oosthuizen By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland — Louis Oosthuizen never let the silver claret jug out of his sight as he celebrated into the morning hours at the Jigger Inn across from the 17th fairway at St. Andrews. If his seven-shot victory in the British Open felt like a dream, reality arrived when he awoke Monday. “I put it next to my bed last night, and I woke up this morning and I looked at it, and I immediately grabbed the phone and text Chubby Chandler, my agent, saying, ’I’ve got this funny old jug next

to my bed.’ “Man, oh, man,” he said. “That was special waking up next to it.” Equally special was his victory at the home of golf, a performance so pure that he never trailed over the final 48 holes and hit into only one bunker on the Old Course, on the 14th hole Sunday when the championship had already been decided. Oosthuizen became the fifth player in the last six Grand Slam events to win his first major, and the question sure to follow is whether he is capable of winning more or if

Wade apologizes for ‘World Trade’ comparison MIAMI (AP) — Dwyane Wade issued an apology Monday to those who may have been offended by his use of the phrase “World Trade” while answering a question about the upcoming Miami Heat season. The All-Star guard made the remark Sunday before the annual charity basketball game he co-hosts with Alonzo Mourning. Standing at his locker before a group of reporters, Wade said:

“There’s going to be times when we might lose one, two games in a row, maybe two games, three games Wade in a row, you never know. It’s going to seem like the world is crashed down. You all are going to make it seem like the World

Trade has just went down again. But it’s not going to be nothing but a couple basketball games lost and we’ll have to get back on track.” On Monday, before leaving on a flight to Los Angeles for some television appearances — he was previously booked to talk with Jay Leno — Wade issued an apology through the Heat. In the statement, Wade said: “In an interview yesterday, I

attempted to explain how some people may view the Miami Heat losing a few basketball games in a row during the upcoming season. It appears that my reference to the World Trade Center has been either inaccurately reported or taken completely out of context. I was simply trying to say that losing a few basketball games should not be compared to a real catastrophe.”

Place in NBA secured, Redick looks to now become a starter By ANTONIO GONZALEZ Associated Press Writer

ORLANDO, Fla. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; As if emotions arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t high enough on a honeymoon, J.J. Redick was on edge awaiting word in Europe on whether the Orlando Magic would match an offer Chicago made for the restricted free agent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My gut feeling changed about seven times during that week,â&#x20AC;? Redick said. It was only fitting that the culmination of his remarkable NBA turnaround would occur in such fashion. After all, nothing has come easy in the NBA for Redick. But the work has paid off. The former Duke standout is getting more than $19 million for the next three seasons to remain with the Magic, the same team that once benched him. Now with Vince Carter signed for only one more season, Redick will likely have the opportunity in the coming years to be a starter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think I can start on a lot of teams. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll start on this team (now), and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m OK with that,â&#x20AC;? Redick said Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be lying to say that I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to start at some point.â&#x20AC;? The latest journey couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have begun at a stranger time. Redick was in Rome with his newlywed wife, Chelsea, when he learned the Bulls would be making him an offer. They were eating dinner the following day in Florence when the

CAMP Lee County hosting Future Stars camp SANFORD â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Lee County football team is hosting its annual Future Stars football camp beginning on Monday at Lee County High School. The camp, which will last until Thursday, July 29, is open to kids between the ages of 8- 14. It is for players of all positions. The camp begin at 8 a.m. and will last until noon. The cost of the camp is $60, which includes a T-shirt and a team lunch on the last day. The lunch will be provided by the camp. For more information, contact Lee County football coach Burton Cates at (336) 266-5383.

Orlando Magic general manager Otis Smith said Friday that the team will retain J.J. Redick (right). The Magic matched a $19 million, three-year offer sheet that the Chicago Bulls made for Redick. offer became official. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the people at the restaurant must have thought I was crazy or I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like my wife because I was literally getting up like every 10 minutes and going out to the square and pacing around. I pace when I talk on the phone,â&#x20AC;? Redick said, chuckling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We went back to the hotel and played the fax game. There was some stuff that was lost in translation with the hotel employees, but we got it done.â&#x20AC;? Then came the stressful wait. Because Redick was a restricted free agent, the Magic had seven days to decide whether to match Chicagoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offer. The Redicks would have to wait all seven. A week later on a

Barcelona beach, phone calls started to trickle in that Redick would be staying with the Magic. They scurried into the first restaurant they could find â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a shoddy place, as he recalled â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to try and get official word. Not exactly an ideal location. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We walked in and it was an old lady behind the counter and like four chairs,â&#x20AC;? Redick said, laughing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And then we just did some stuff to kill time. I got back, and my phone was lighting up and I saw that I was coming back to the Magic. Those couple hours, I tried to get out of place, out of mind.â&#x20AC;? Now begins his next journey, one that comes after a tough four years. After being selected

with the 11th overall pick in the 2006 draft, Redick was relegated from college star to seldom-used reserve. He struggled so much early on that by 2008 the shooting guard and his agent went public with the frustration, asking to get more minutes or be traded. That memory has faded. Redick has become a significant contributor for the Magic. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more of an all-around player now and not just a strong shooter, and he is no longer a defensive liability. Redick averaged 9.6 points per game off the bench last season. He also came up big in the Eastern Conference finals against Boston, averaging 11.2 points in the series while Carter struggled.

SANFORD â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Lee County Parks and Recreation will be holding its annual basketball camp on Tuesday in the gymnasium at B.T. Bullock Elementary.

he happened to play his best golf during an important week. The margin of victory is what makes this stand out. Until his conservative play on the 17th to make bogey, Oosthuizen was poised to tie the Open record over 72 holes with an eight-shot victory, last achieved by Tiger Woods a decade ago. Seven shots is no less impressive. In the 150 years of major championships, only 14 players have won by seven shots or more (Woods has done three times, Jack Nicklaus twice). Of those players, only two â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Fred Herd in the 1898 U.S. Open and Willie Smith in the 1899 U.S. Open â&#x20AC;&#x201D; never won another major. Where does Oosthuizen fit in? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think based on the margin of victory, his demeanor on the golf course, the quality of his game and steady progress that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been making in the world rankings and in tour events, I think very much mark him as a player on the rise,â&#x20AC;? Royal & Ancient chief executive Peter Dawson said Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every great Open champion has to win for the first time.

And I for one would not be surprised to see him win again.â&#x20AC;? That would be the plan for the 27year-old South African. In this age of players turning pro earlier and winning tour events immediately, from Ryo Ishikawa to Rory McIlroy to Anthony Kim, Oosthuizen might be a late bloomer. Ernie Els noticed his skill immediately when he invited Oosthuizen to be part of his foundation, which helps promising juniors who need financial assistance. Oosthuizen wears â&#x20AC;&#x153;57â&#x20AC;? on his sleeve, the name of his own foundation, as a tribute to the score he shot on his home course of Mossel Bay along the Garden Route in South Africa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The wind blows so hard there that the sea gulls walk,â&#x20AC;? Chandler said. Yet the self-belief was lacking until Oosthuizen won the Andalucia Open in Spain earlier this year, his first European Tour victory. And while he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have predicted a victory in the British Open, he knew he was capable. He figures the seven years he spent on the European Tour toughened him up, and winning in Spain for his first European Tour title did nothing but boost his confidence.

who has seven PGA Tour wins and 14 European Tour wins, won his second major in this period at the 2004 U.S. Open.) Take the 14 â&#x20AC;&#x153;high-majorâ&#x20AC;? wins away â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Woods, Mickelson, Harrington, Singh and Goosen â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re left with 17 major titles among 15 major-championship winners. This is where we use the term â&#x20AC;&#x153;majorâ&#x20AC;? lightly. Greatness seems only to come to only about half of the actual major champions. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a look at each player who has won a single major since 2003: Mike Weir (â&#x20AC;&#x2122;03 Masters) Eight career wins on the PGA Tour, Weir has won just twice on Tour since donning the green jacket. He has not won since 2007, or finished better than sixth in a major since 2006. Jim Furyk (â&#x20AC;&#x2122;03 U.S. Open) The best player of the most recent â&#x20AC;&#x153;single winners,â&#x20AC;? Furyk has won 15 times on Tour, including seven times since he won the Open. But he has thrown away chances at a second major win on several Sundays in the last three years. Ben Curtis (â&#x20AC;&#x2122;03 British Open) He was ranked 396th in the world when he played in and won his first major

tournament, the Open at Royal St. Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s won twice since, but both came in 2006. He was second at the 2008 PGA and made the Ryder Cup team. Shaun Micheel (â&#x20AC;&#x2122;03 PGA) One win. You know which one. Todd Hamilton (â&#x20AC;&#x2122;04 British Open) Hamiltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other PGA Tour win at the Honda Classic came four months before he beat Ernie Els in a playoff at Royal Troon. He hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t won since, but does claim 11 wins on the Japan Tour. OK, then. Michael Campbell (â&#x20AC;&#x2122;05 U.S. Open) A series of injuries have derailed Campbellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s won only once since holding off Woods in Pinehurst. At the time of his Open win, though, Campbell had won seven times in six years on the European Tour. Geoff Ogilvy (â&#x20AC;&#x2122;06 U.S. Open) Though his major was gift-wrapped by Mickelson, Ogilvy is more Furyk than Hamilton. Ogilvyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s won seven times on Tour, four of which have come since his major victory. Two of those wins include World Golf Championships. Zach Johnson (â&#x20AC;&#x2122;07 Masters) Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s close to joining the next-level group with Furyk and Ogilvy. Johnson has won seven times on Tour, with five of the victories coming after Augusta. Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s won three times since January 2009, but has just one top-10

finish in a major since winning. Trevor Immelman (â&#x20AC;&#x2122;08 Masters) Better before than after: two wins on the PGA Tour, three other wins on the Euro Tour, though none of them have come since 2004. He hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t finished better than T-19 in 10 major starts since his win. Lucas Glover (â&#x20AC;&#x2122;09 U.S. Open) Only other Tour win came in 2005 at a late-season event at Walt Disney. Stewart Cink (â&#x20AC;&#x2122;09 British Open) In his 15th year on Tour, he has six wins. Cink hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t finished better than T-40 in his last four majors since winning. Y.E. Yang (â&#x20AC;&#x2122;09 PGA) The one guy to come from behind to beat a leading Woods in And heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also already 38 years old. Graeme McDowell (â&#x20AC;&#x2122;10 U.S. Open) McDowell is on par with Johnson already. Before winning at Pebble Beach, McDowell had claimed five Euro Tour victories in a span of eight years. Louis Oosthuizen (â&#x20AC;&#x2122;10 British Open) Quite a year for the 27-year-old. He won on the Euro Tour in March and finished second as well. Before his triumph Sunday, though, Oosthuizen had made just one cut in eight previous major starts, finishing 73rd at the 2008 PGA. After the hits and misses over the last eight years, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just say the juryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still out on the new Open Champion.

DEAR ABBY

BRIDGE HAND

Some employees work hard while others hardly work DEAR ABBY: I understand the frustration of “Takes My Job Seriously” (June 1), the supervisor who complained about her female employees requesting time off for kids’ school and sports events or beauty appointments. Over the last few years I have noticed a decline in work ethic across the board. Phone calls go unreturned, workers stand around idle and errors are made on important forms. People seem to do the minimum necessary to make it to the end of the day, and supervisors aren’t much different — they allow this behavior. Years ago, people worked hard for their money. Now they hardly work. — GETTING THE JOB DONE

HOROSCOPES Universal Press Syndicate

Happy Birthday: You can let down your guard a little and open up to new friends or lovers this year. The people you meet will contribute to your creative drive and motivate you to follow through with plans you may have walked away from in the past. Love is in the stars and, with a little planning, you can impress someone to whom you are attracted. Your numbers are 11, 18, 24, 29, 30, 36, 47 ARIES (March 21-April 19): There won’t be much you can do to control your current situation, but you can prepare for what you hope to see happen in the future. Don’t share your plans, ideas or thoughts with someone who doesn’t understand your reasoning. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your relationships take an emotional turn if you are the least bit difficult to get along with. Don’t argue when what works best is collaborating and working hand-inhand toward a common goal. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Take the initiative and make things happen. Sitting back, waiting for someone to do things for you, will mean you fall behind. Don’t lose enthusiasm because of the way someone reacts toward you or what you are doing. Jealousy will be the cause. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take on a task at home you’ve been putting off and you will find it gets rid of some of the pent-up tension you’ve been feeling. The way will be paved for exciting, new developments. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): It will be difficult to hide your feelings, so face any controversy and put it behind you. Once you have gotten rid of some of your anxiety, you should make plans to visit a place you enjoy. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.

WORD JUMBLE

22): You can sign a deal or settle a difference that puts more cash in your hands. Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want. You have plenty to offer. Love is present but won’t develop unless you send the right signals. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You can expect to face some challenges, brought on by someone who doesn’t want to see you advance. But you can handle it with ease. Do note, however, who is and who is not your friend and ally. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t believe everything you hear, especially from someone who wants to manipulate a decision you must make. Love is on the rise and working together with someone who shares the same goal as you will pay off. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Show your dedication and loyalty. Complaining or showing dissatisfaction will work against you. The more diplomatic and complimentary you are, the easier it will be to get others to do things your way. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): You cannot go wrong as long as you stay on track and manage your money with care. Someone you are fond of will want to work alongside you, offering all sorts of perks as well as genuine help that will ensure your success. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Keep a close watch and you will know who is on your side and who isn’t. You may be surprised to discover that someone who has always been there for you is still standing in the background to catch you if you fall. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll have to make a tough call. Make sure you know what’s being asked of you before moving forward. You may end up in an emotional mess if you don’t take care of your own responsibilities first.

DEAR GETTING: Your letter was one of many I received filled with interesting — and varied — comments on this topic. Read on: DEAR ABBY: I am the owner of a recruiting company, and I agree with the writer’s views on the quality of today’s work force. I hear from many frustrated clients seeking employees who actually want to work for their paycheck. We have turned into an entitlement society. No one wants to take responsibility for his/her work or life any longer. And they expect big-time money for no responsibility. — VALERIE IN GEORGIA DEAR ABBY: “TMJS” fails to take into consideration the evolution of the work force. Not only are there more women working now, but we

usually work far beyond the regular 9-to-5 grind. As a single mom, I need flexibility in my schedule to get everything done that’s demanded of me at work and at home. I take my laptop home every night and work after my son goes to sleep. “TMJS” may feel superior because I’m not in the office as much as she is, but I’ll bet I work more hours per week. Technology now allows us the flexibility of choice. — BONNIE C. DEAR ABBY: I supervise several younger women. Studies have shown that while these employees want to do a good job, they find it equally important to have “work/ life” balance. I actually think they are smarter than we are. We tend to overwork and feel guilty if we take a day for ourselves. If they take the time they have earned and use it for what they enjoy — good for them. — WORKAHOLIC IN FORT COLLINS

DEAR ABBY: “TMJS” should update her management training. While we mourn the loss of the way things were, there have been positive changes as well. Understanding diversity in the workplace is imperative for a successful manager. My 20-year-old would be shocked at the concept of staying in one job for 45 years — but that was the norm in my dad’s day. In this global economy, “different” does not equal “bad.” — PATTY IN LANCASTER, PA. DEAR ABBY: “TMJS” must have entered the work force when companies still took care of loyal, longtime employees by providing good benefits and job security. It paid to go the extra mile for your employer because you knew your company would return the favor when needed. In recent years this has changed. Workers today realize that sacrificing their personal life for their professional one does not necessarily reap any benefits. The so-called breakdown of the family unit may be the result of workers dedicating themselves more to their jobs than to their home lives. — FAMILY FIRST IN TEXAS DEAR ABBY: I supervise young, highly paid federal employees and expect them to work hard for the money taxpayers pay them. They seem to think their personal problems should be mine. I disagree. A job is a privilege too many people fail to appreciate until it’s gone. — SERIOUS, TOO, IN THE SOUTHWEST

ODDS AND ENDS Police: Handcuffed man opened car door, escaped ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) — Police in central Florida say a man who was handcuffed somehow managed to open a police cruiser’s door and escape after complaining he was claustrophobic and couldn’t breathe. Altamonte Springs police say the officer had opened the windows slightly for 19-year-old Ridgh Genesis Achille, who had been arrested Friday night on a shoplifting charge. On the way to the jail, the man somehow opened the door from the outside and took off running. The Orlando Sentinel reports that officers, police dogs and even a helicopter were still trying to find Achille on Saturday morning.

Mass. releases ‘great places’ list — with errors BOSTON (AP) — It turns out that some of Massachusetts’ greatest places aren’t so great after all. To promote tourism, the Legislature last week released a list of the state’s top 1,000 attractions. But the Boston Herald reports that some sites don’t exist any more, some are closed to the public and some are listed in the wrong towns. The list also actually has 996 places. The list includes the Baker Robinson Whale Oil Refinery in New Bedford, which has been gutted to make way for a hotel; and Worcester’s African Cultural Center and Ashland State Park, both of which are closed. St. Stanislaus Kostka Church in Pittsfield was closed by the Springfield Diocese two years ago. Tourism officials acknowledge some mis-

1,000 runaway plastic ducks need to be rounded up FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — A child advocacy agency is hoping to get all its ducks in a row after more than 1,000 plastic entrants in a charity duck race floated to freedom in northeast Indiana. Stop Child Abuse & Neglect says 17,000 plastic ducks were dropped into the St. Joseph River in Fort Wayne during the June 19 fundraiser but that only 15,000 were retrieved that day. Spokeswoman Jennifer Boen says about 1,000 of the rogue ducks have since been recovered, and that some of the others have been spotted as far away as Ohio. The group says it is working with the Fort Wayne Water Department to catch the remaining ducks and that it wouldn’t do anything to jeopardize the beauty of the river.

Ohio to test Chia Pet-like sound wall on highway CLEVELAND (AP) — Ohio plans to build a sound barrier made out of soil and plants in the state’s first eco-friendly attempt at muffling highway noise. A spokesman for the state transportation department says the 12-foot high wall will be like a Chia Pet: Workers will water bags filled with soil and seeds and watch it grow. The transportation department says the noise wall will be built this fall. It will span 400 feet along a westbound stretch of Interstate 70 near Columbus.

Suddenly, I’ve realized I’m getting older, and I wonder if I’m headed in the right direction. I haven’t paid much attention to God, but is it too late to change that? -- K.C. A: I’m thankful you’re thinking about your life and where you’re headed, because this is one of the most important questions you’ll ever ask. Tragically, many people never ask it until it’s too late and their lives are over. The Psalmist prayed, “Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom” (Psalm 90:12). No, it isn’t too late for you to turn to God and discover His plan for the rest of your life -- and I strongly encourage you to do so. You may have forgotten God -- but God hasn’t forgotten you, because He loves you and wants to help you discover the joy of knowing Him. The only life worth living is the life that puts God at its center instead of self. And this can happen, because God loves us and wants us to walk with Him every day. How do I know this? I know it because God sent His Son into the world to bring us back to Himself. You see, only one thing separates us from God, and that is our sin. No matter who we are or how good or bad we’ve been, we are all sinners, and we are all separated from God. But Jesus Christ came to erase our sin and guilt, and reconcile us to God.
