Golson Elementary school



workday set for Monday
BY' DEOA BUCHATE


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER

,he Golson Elementary
School PTO is inviting ev-
eryone in the community
to roll up their sleeves and
put in a few hours of labor
to get the school ready for
.the start of the academic
year.
A painting, decorating
and clean-up day is setfor
Monday, from 1-8 p.m. Al-
though the workday will
be driven by the PTO, the
entire community is wel-
come to take part. Helpers
can show up at any point


throughout the day if they
don't think they can put in
a full 1-8 p.m. shift.,
New PTO President
CassieWillis said the group'
took the job on at the re-
quest of Dr. Jennifer Haw-
thorne, the new Golson
principal. The event will
provide participating high
school students an oppor-
tunity to earn community
service points they can
use to boost their college
scholarship applications.
Bulletin boards need to
be decorated, yards need
to be raked, and some in-


terior painting is needed,
and those are among the
last minute touches that
volunteers Will help with,
Willis said.
Willis said this is the sec-
ond PTO project she has
participated in as presi-
dent of the' Organization;
she took on thar role JLuly
15 and is, shepherding
through a rehab task that
began earlier; the PTO is
helping Golson refurbish
its swing sets. The organi-
zation provided money to
sandblast and re-paint the
frame of the swing sets,


which will soon be outfit-
ted with 50 new swings.
Those are already on cam-
pus and ready to be hung.
In addition to the satis-
faction that comes with
knowing they've helped
make the school a bit
brighter for Jackson Coun-
ty's youngest students, the
helpers will get a special
thank-you on their day of
work. They'll be treated to
a hot dog supper at 6 p.m,
That event will follow a
short PTO meeting at 5:30

ing an effort, to change
the grade for a top GOP

]l..he director of national intelligence announced
| on July 19 that a court had renewed one of the ,
l government's most controversial surveillance .
programs-- the collection of a vast database of so-
called metadata from Americans'phone calls. The.
phone metadata effort does not appear to be an obvi-
ously unconstitutional abuse of civil liberties. Yet at
least two things should bother Americans about it.
First is that the government is gathering.so much '
phone call information to track what should be a rela-
tively small number of targets. Collecting and keeping
the country's phone records results in a very powerful
surveillance toolthat, if ab used, could give govern-,,
ment agents insight into how all sorts of Americans are
conducting their lives. .;
The government argues that it is very careful; it con-
suits with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court
and meets strict standards, only looking at the informa-
tion when investigators have reasonable, documentable
suspicion to believe they are on to a terrorist group. But
it is often up to the National Security Agency to apply,
those standards to itself, with outside review coming-
after the agency has accessed the metadata. 1;
Second, and related, are the justifications for amass-
ing all of that'information. Section 215 of the Patriot Act
allows the government to obtain records, such as phone
-metadata, as long as they are relevant to a terrorism
investigation. Government lawyers argue that detecting
patterns of communications those whom suspects
call and even associates of those associates has yield-
ed information that has contributed to foiling potential
terror plots. In order to produce those benefits, they say,
they must have, somewhere, the whole universe of this
sort of metadata, which communications firms don't:
keepthemselves. '" :
Bythat logic;, nearly every record anywhere coud be
considered relevant. Other huge collectionsofsurveil-
lance metadata though ht of communications .
content,:which is governed by different standards
could exist. If misused, they would also pose a threat
-to Americans' privacy., .. ... ,,
The House last weekk considered an amendment to
a defense funding-bill thaLwould scale back the NSA's
wholesale gathering of phone or other metadata. The.
amendment didn't pass and rightly s: T'gldking it onto
an appropriations bill is hardly the way to hash out
complex national security policy. That is not the end
of the debate. Earlier this month, Rep. James Sensen-
Sbrenner, R-Wis., told intelligence officials that Congress
might not renewthe Patt f ct's Seoelon 2t, unfess'-
they change their collection procedures. ..-:
The focus of any politically realistic reform should t
be on ensuring that government Agents use only bits
of metadata when they must. One idea is for Congress
to require communications companies to store their
records separately and force investigators to approach
those firms to gain access. If lawmakers did that, they
would also have to require companies to develop fast,
ways of transferring information to the government,
and they sa -theives thosecompaes

good reasons to examine a particular phone number,
bringing them to ajudge.forapproval hardly seems out-
rageous. From there, the courtmust carefullymornitor
the NSA's success'at minimizing Americans' exposure.

Massive explosions rock Tavares gas plant


The Associated Press

TAVARES After hearing two
explosions, maintenance worker
Gene Williams looked outside to
see a 20-by-20 foot fireball rising
Above an outdoor storage area at
the Blue Rhino propane plant.
Moments later, a forklift work-
er stumbled into the building
with flesh hanging off his hands.
His legs and face'were burned.
Exploding 20-pound canisters
of propane began raining down
around them during the series of
explosions late Monday night.
Bright orange flames would
grow as high as 200 feet, 'fueled
by the exploding canisters that
shot through the air like fire-
works. Houses nearby shook
and residents, awakened to the
sound of "boom after boom after'
boom." '
No one died, but eight work-
ers were injured, including one
worker who was hit by a car on a
nearby road while fleeing the ex-
plosions. Officials said the dam-
age could have been significant-
ly worse if three 30,000-pound
propane storage containers had
caught fire'at the plant that re-
fills propane tanks for gas grills
and otherhome uses. About 50
nearby houses were temporar-
ily evacuated, though none was
ultimately damaged.
If the large tanks had exploded,
"it would have wiped us out,"
said Lake County-Battalion Chief
Chris Croughwell, one of thefirst
responders to the explosions in
the town northwest of Orlando:

liams said it appeared to begin
about 100 yards from the load-
ing dock in an area where some
of the plant's.53,000 20-pound
propane canisters are stored on
plastic pallets.
Tavares Fire Chief Richard
Keith said possible causes of the
explosion may be either/equip-
ment malfunction or human er-
ror. Sabotage was not suspected.
The plant's two-dozen workers
were preparing to go home when
the explosions started Monday

"'I did what they told
me to do, and then this
happened.'"
S Gene Williams,
plant maintenance worker in reporting what
he said an injured forklift operator told him
after the propane plant explosions

said Tuesday he was surprised to
learn the hoses at the plant had
to be manually activated. If Blue
Rhino reopens the plant, Wolfe
said he plans to ask that the
hoses be activated automatically
by computer. "That way, it's fail-
safe," Wolfe said. "We're lucky
those tanks didn't explode."
Blue Rhino is a subsidiary of
Kansas-based national propane
provider Ferrellgas. Spokesman
Scott Brockelmeyer said Tuesday
he didn't have specific informa-
tion available about the safety
water hoses but added that
the company follows industry
standards.
"It's as sobering a situation
as you can possibly imagine,"
Brockelmeyer said.
Ferrellgas paid a '$2,295 fine .
in November 2011 following an
OSHA inspection that found a
component at the end of an air
hose used in the consumer tank
refurbishing process was not
present.
Brockelmeyer said the compa-
ny corrected the issue and added
that "the process is performed in
area away from where the tanks
are.filled."
Four workers were listed in crit-
ical conditions at area hospitals.


Blackbear sightings
on rise in Panhandle
NAVARRE -Wildlife
officials say the number
of black bear sightings is
on the rise in the Florida'
Panhandle.
Since January, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commis-
sion has logged 360 calls
about bear sightings in a
four-county area. That's
up from 249 during the
same period last year.
The increased number
of sightings prompted
wildlife officials and state
Rep. Doug Broxson to
schedule a public work-
shop to discuss saferV
measures forresidents.
Broxson told the Pen-
sacola News Journal a
black bear ran in front of
him during a recent bike
ride.
At last count, there
were at least 3,000 black
bears living in Florida,
according to FWC. -
'Astowns develop.
and new developments
open up, it's a situation
where we've seen across
the state people who
are moving into wildlife


habitats; and now, they're',
face to face with the crea-
tures that inhabit them,"
FWC spokesman Stan
Kirkland said.
So far, FWC has not
received reports of
injuries or significant
property damage among
humans from the'bear
encounters. ',..
The bears, however,
haven't fared quite as
well. According to.wildiife
officials, four bears have
been fatally struck by
vehicles this year, includ-
ing one along US. 98 in
Navarre lastWednesday.

The Associated Press

MIAMI A toddler who
drowned in a dirty swim-
'ming pool two weeks after
he'd been found wandering
near his home is the latest
child to die of abuse or ne-
glect after a state worker
deemed them safe.
The Miami Herald re-
ports 3-year-old Dakota
Stiles died July 25 in the
pool that a Department,
of Children and Families
worker had described as
"exceptionally unsafe."
In, mid-July, tan investi-
gator found that' Dakota's
parents "appear to be
paralyzed in parenting the
children." But the chil-
dren remained in the Vero
Beachhome. -
"These conditions, and
the parents' flat reaction
to the child victim getting
out of the home," an in-
vestigator wrote, "pose a
significant risk of harm" to
Dakota.
Nevertheless, DCF did
nothing to protect Dakota


as it continued to inves-
tigate his parents. "At this
time," a report said, "there
does not appearto,be an
immediate negative, im-
pact on the victim's safetyy"
The Herald reports Da-
kota became the seventh
' child to die under DCF's
watch and the second to
die since interim secretary
Esther .Jacobo took over
from David Wilkins,, who
resigned two'weeks ago.
Jacobo said she's out-
raged by Dakota's death.
Another death con-
nected to DCF is that of
Cherish Perrywinkle, 8.
The 'Jacksonville girl was..
raped and strangled by a
registered sex offender her
mother had befriended,
police said. Her family had
been investigated by DCF
multiple times'in the years
leading up to her death.
The sex offender, Donald
James Smith, was indicted'
on June 21 on charges of
first-degree murder, sexual
battery and kidnapping.
He faces the death penalty.

Prices ir' Dallas and high. low mortgage rates, have Gudell said.


Gudell said higher mort-
gage rates and a likely in-

homes for sale in' the com-
ing months, should slow
the pace of ;price gains
and 'stabilize the, housing
market. '
The index covers roughly

sures prices compared

The May figures are 'the
latest available. They are
-not adjusted foriseasonal
variations, so the month-
ly 'gains reflect, more
'buying activity over' the
summer.
Despite the recent gains,
home prices are still about
25 percent below the
peaks they reached in July
2006. 'Thats'akey reason'


the supply of homes for
sale remains low, as many
homeowners are waiting
to recoup their losses be-
fore putting their houses
on the market..
Dallas and Denver, the
two cities that reached re-
cord highs, were not hit
hard by the housing bust
and therefore didn't ex-
perience, the sharp price
swings like cities in Ne-
vada,. Arizona, California
andFlorida.
SIn Dallas, prices fell, only
11.2 percent from their
previous peak in June

T om ast Chipoliqgr
frompas Chipola graduate Mary Margaret Obert Tuesday
j. Jduring th&Associate'Degree Nursing Program graduation.


Tubers
From Page 1A'
When the Chipola River
gets just above 13 feet, it
backs into the creek,, stop-
ping the normal current
that would have allowed
the tubers to continue
through the creek into
the river downstream. In-
stead, theywere left to idle
in a still pool that the cir-
cumstance created. .
' The party included 10
people, but the,10th in-
dividual disembarked
from the creek shortly
after 'the group went in.
Realizing that they'd failed
to drive a vehicle down to
Magnolia Landing, where
they planned, to termi-
nate their creek and river
trip, he got out of the wa-
ter and drove one to the
landing. He waited forhis
friends six hours, then
"called for help. They had
been .due at the landing
roughly 3.5 hours after
theywent in.'
A team from the Jackson
County Sheriff's Office
went in aboard a motor-
ized boat;, found them,
and brought them out in
two batches around 6:30
'p.m. '
Major Donnie Branch
of the Jackson County,
Sheriff's Office said the
tubers did the right thing
in that they stayed put,
rather than trying towalk
out through the-shallower
waters of the swamp sur-
rounding the creek; some,
others who found. thern-
selves in the same pre-
dicameInt in the past tried'
' to walkdiut. They got lost,


exhausted, and mosquito-
bitten and had to be found
and rescued.
But they did the wrong
thing by entering the wa-
ter in the first place, he.
said.
One ofthetubers, Andrea
Jeannot, said that no one
in her party saw any signs
warning that the launch
was closed because of
high water, although she
acknowledged that some
yellow caution tape, was
,up. Not' interpreting that
as a warningtotubers, she
saidi/they scooted under
the tape and went in. She
said that three members
of her party had tubed
the route many times in
past summers and had
nevei; p ,countered the, di-
lemma they would face on
this trip. They'd planned
to rent tubes from a local
provider, but bought some
in towni instead when they
arrived at the rental outlet
and found it closed.
The county, had ,closed.
the. launch Saturday and
it was still closed on Mon-
day, according to Jackson
County Recreation Direc-
tor Chuck Hatcher. Know-
ing that people sometimes
tear the' tape and remove
the signs that are put up
in times like these, he said
he checked the launch site
Monday and' found the
tape torn. He tied it at
the bieak, but didn't say
whether the sign was still
Up and visible. Hatcher'
said he is exploriting. ideas
for a more sturdy closure
device, 'perhaps a chain
linkfence, and more prom-
inent and sturdy signs that:
might be more difficult to


remove; The ones used
now are similar, to' tem -'
porary political signs. He
urges everyone to heed the
tape and sign. "Going in
when that tape is up is like
going into the Gulf with
double red flags," he said.
"We'll try to get better at
this, but people need to
leave the signs and the
tape alone and they need
to take. the warning. They.
don't want to be in this
situation."
As for the status of the
launch, it was. still closed
as of Tuesday and proba-
bly won't be opened again
until Friday or later; the
river is falling, but not low
enough to allow the cur-
rent to flow normally. It
crested at. roughly 17.4 feet
but had fallen to 16 ;feet
on Monday, and was at,
14.6 feet mid-morning on
Tuesday. It was expected
to reach 13 feet sometime
Thursday or early Friday.,
Despite her Iexperience..
Monday, Jeannot said she
will be'back' for another
go at the river and thinks
that most or all of the
others will be game for a
return trip as well. All '10
are college students, some
from FSU and some from
FAMU.
She said no one suffered
any injuries in the mis-
'adventure, although she
commented that her back
was sore Tuesday because
she swam a good distance,
trying' to reach the river,
after the current stalled."
,After that failed, she
turned back and rejoined
her parry. "It was' one
(heck of an) i adventure,".
she said.

Jewel heist on Riviera raises security questions


The Associated Press
PARIS. The diamond
show was staged on the
ground floor of a hotel
that thieves had targeted
before and which, in
fact, had featured in Alfred
Hitchcock's high-karat
classic "To Catch a Thief."
The guards were few and
unarmed, and nobody
thought to tell the police
about the tens of millions
worth of gems on display
formore than a month.
As more details emerged
Tuesday, questions grew
about how the collection
was so vulnerable, and
how a single thief with a
handgun could make off
with one of the biggest
hauls in history- a total
of $136 million in jewels
- without firing a shot.
It was the second time
.in a week that unarmed
guards were overwhelmed
by jewel thieves. At a Swiss
prison near the French
border, a member of the
notorious "Pifik Panther"
gang escaped after accom-
plices rammed-a gate and
overpowered unarmed
guards with bursts from
Kalashnikovs.
Private security guards
are generally prohibited
from carrying weapons in
France asnd Switzerland
- that's reserved for po-
lice but special autho-
rizations can be granted
when high-value assets are
at stake.
"The public carrying of
weapons -even by secu-
rity guards and police offi-
cers is much less visible
throughout Europe than it
is in parts of North Amer-


heists during the Cannes
Film Festival.
"For security in a ho-
tel that was housing such
a collection, it's more a
question that can be asked
of the victim and its in-


surer than of police ser-
vices," said Cmdr. Bernard
Mascarelli, head of the
judicial police in nearby
Nice, whose Bureau for the
Repression of Banditry is
leading the investigation.


The owner of the col-
lection, Israeli billionaire
Lev Leviev, has said little
about the theft, but said in
a statement Tuesday that
the company was working
with police and insurers.


Police outside the Carlton hotel, in Cannes, southern France,
the scene of a daylight raid, Sunday, July 28. A staggering
40 million euro ($53 million) worth of jewels and diamonds
were stolen Sunday from the Carlton Intercontinental Hotel in
Cannes,


ica," said Keith Krause,
program director of the
Geneva-based Small Arms
Survey, a nonprofit that
monitors global views of
weapons.
"Given that civilian pos-
session of weapons is
much less available, they're
unlikely to have weapons
because they're unlikely
to be facing people with
weapons."
Zakaria Rami, a union
representative at- the Carl-
ton Intercontinental Hotel
in Cannes who has worked
there for 16 years, said
show organizers didn't for-
mally advise police of the
show. Only a few guards
hired by the jeweler pro-
vided security in a hotel
showroom site where the
robber struck on Sunday.
"If police knew there was
$100 million in jewelry, I
think they would have put
a patrol car out there," he
said.
MThe show was far from
inconspicuous: One-story


tall, bright pink banners
covered the front facade
of the Carlton, one of the
most famous hotels on
La Croisente Cannes'
best-known seaside
promenade. .
Rami wasn't at the Carl-'
ton in 1994 when a gun-
man opened fire at the
hotel, injuring a guard
before making off with
$45 million in jewels. That
robbery prpmpted the
city tW sugpeBdi-thegegi
shows that draw jewelers
to the French Riviera each
summer, hoping to catch
the eye of travelers with
money to bum. The ban
expired years ago, and the
'shows resumed.
The jewels on display
routinely catch some un-
wanted attention. Rami
said he can think of four
or five other major robber-
ies in his time 'in Cannes,
which appears to be a fa-
vorite target this year in
May it was struck by other
two, highly publicized

Crash kills Texas A&M lineman, Utah recruit


The As ,oco ledlPre.-.:
Damontre Moore helped recruit Polo
MNlanukainiu to Texas A&MNI and remem-
bered the day the twvo met.
MNanukainiu was still in high school,
even then a fearsome figure at 6-foot-
5 and some 275 pounds. Beneath that
mammoth frame, though, was a young
man with sweet and caring personality,
a huge smile and kind words for every-
one fortunate enough to know him.
"He was this huge kid.'; Moore toldThe
Associated Press in a phone interview
from New \ork Giants training camp.
"I'd been in college already for like rwo
years and he was this huge monster

Phil Mickelson waits for his playing partners to catch up
on the 14th hole during practice for the WGC Bridgestone
Invitational on Tuesday at Firestone Country Club in Akron,
Ohio.

Lefty still pinching


himself after Open
T j'' elfaft /


The Associated Press

AKRON, Ohio '-Phil
Mickelson has no doubt
what will be most remem-
bered from his career.
""It will '.always, be the
'04 Masters and showing
off my Olympic jumping
ability," he cracked of his.
celebratory hop, which
will never be mistaken for
Michael Jordan leaving
the launch pad.
But there's also no ques-
tion in his mind Of what
he thinks is his most sig-
nificant victory..
"For me, personally,
(winning) the British
Open is the greatest ac-
complishment I could
ever get in my.career," he
said .Tuesday, nine' days
after capturing the claret
jug at Muirfield with a stir-
ring final-round flourish.
After, 'a week off, pre-
paring on Monday for
next weels P.GA Cham-
pionship and now trying
to focus on this week's
Bridgestone Invitation-
al, Mickelson remains
stunned that he actually
won an event he thought
would always be out of his'
gasp.
He still isn't convinced
he actually did it..
"I'm looking forward
to in the coming years
looking back and re-
membering 'Muirfield,
remembering the '13
Open and remembering
all the things- that hap-
pened 'on that back nine,"
he said during prepara-,
fions for the.Bridgestone
Invitational.
Mickelson always felt


an', affinity for Augusta
National and the Masters,
where he won in 2004, '06
and '10. He erased all the
speculation of whether he
would ever win a major in
.2004, when he rolled in
the clinching birdie putt
on the 18th and "leaped,"
his, spikes barely leaving
the ground.
"I always knew that I
was going to win the' Mas-
ters because I had played
well there for,, so many
years," he said.
He: also believed he
could win a PGA Champi-
onship, which he crossed
off his list in ,2005 at
Balthsrol.
Sure; there was the lin-
gering heartache of con-
tinually being a brides-
maid at the U.S. Open
- a record six times. But
at least he was a threat to
win it many years.
The British Open,'how-
ever, was never his cup of
Earl Grey. He floundered
in the wind and sideways
rain, struggled in the
heather and high weeds,
fell apart while others
made late charges, He
was seldom even near the
leaderboard;. ,
But that all changed at
Muirfield. He's still pinch-
ing himself.
"It was so difficult for me
to ilay my best golf in the.
British Open under those
.conditions than any other
tournament he said. "To
Win that is the greatest ac-
complishinent for me in
my career."'
Now he's tryingto focus
on what's next, instead
of, what just' happened.

GM:. Panthers


want to build


around Newton


TheAss9clated.Press

SPARTANBURG, S.C.
- Panthers general man-'
ager Dave Gettleman said
quarterback Cam Newton
is a player he can build the
franchise
around.,
BitGettle-
man is quick,'
to add "'but'
now it's time
to win."
.'In Gettle- Newton
mans view, N
Newton has had the best
first two' seasons of any
QB in NFL history, but said
that gets lost on people
"because of the elephant
in the room, which is his
13-19 record" as a starter.
In two seasons Newton
has throWn for 7,920 yards
and 40 touchdowns with 29
interceptions. He's also run
for 1,447 yards and 22 TDs. -
He was named AP Of-
fensive Rookie o1 the Year
in2011, l
Newton's -contract runs
through the 2014 season
and Carolina has an option
to pick up another year in
2015. The Panthers would-
also have the option to use
the.franchise tag on New-
ton in 2016 if they haven't
Reached along-term agree-
ment prior to that point ..
.Gettlemarn saidthe Pan-
thers are, i no .hurry; to
extend Newton's contract
.right-now.: .
"Technically you have
rights to him for sixyears,"


Gettleman said. "... I'm a
big believer in letting na-
ture take its course. Things
will happen naturally."
Newton has .taken a
good bit of criticism for his
leadership ability during
his first two seasons, but.
Gettlerman doesn't seem
concerned about that. '
He believes Newton will
mature into an outstand-
ming quarterback and team.
leader.
"It will take time," Get-
tfleman'said."I'Tm new and
I've made some mistakes,
too. I've had days' here
whire I wanted to punch'
myself. (But) he is bright.
He works his fanny. off.
There's no reason that he
can't -continue to ascend
and I think he will."
' On the field, Gettleman
said he couldn't be more
impressed with Newton,
who has dropped about
12 pounds in preparation
for this season.
SNewton had a rough day
on Tuesday, throwing a
pair of interceptions dur-
ing team drills but other.,

Coach Ron Rivera said

Swimming

U.S. dominates at

world championships


The As'o,:,ated Pre4s-
BARCELO Spain
- Missy F tt e
AmericanT TT: ". Then
Katie Ledecky ly fired
em u p. ..' .' .
By the en :of the bright,
theU.S. team
was awash
in medals
at the world
swimming
champion-
ships.
Franklin Franklin
and Ledecky
each won
her second.
gold medal
of the meet,
Matt Grevers
led a ,.1I2,
American
claedefinish in the
Ledecky backstroke,
and there was plenty of rea-
sonto celebrate for the red,
white and blue on Tesday.
"We'vehad an absolutely
incredible evening," Frank-
linsaid. "I'm so proud of all
my teammates."
IIn all, the Americans
aimed three golds, two
silvers and a bronze -* a
strong meet for most na-
tions, certainly quite a haul
in a mere two hours.
"A big night for us," said
Bob Bowman, head coach
ofsthe U.S. means team.
Everyone was raving
about Ledecky, only 16 but
already-well on herway to
becoming one of the coun-
try's great, distance swim-
mers. She obliterated the
world record in the 1,500-
meter freestyle, which may
be a non-Olympic event for
the women but did nothing
to diminish the magnitude
of her accomplishment.
After going stroke for
stroke with Denmark's
Lotte Friis most of the
race, with both well un-
der world-record pace,
Ledecky really -umed it on


over the final 200 and beat
the mark by more than 6
seconds. Friis also went
under the old record, and
all it got her was silver.
"Itwas motivatingwatch-
ing Katie destroy the world
record from the ready
room," Grevers said. "That
really got us psyched."
Franklin cruised through
Demanding double, easily
winning the 100 backstroke
before returning about,
an hour later to post the
second-fastest time in the
semifinals of the 200 free.
"It's tough, but it's fun," the
18-year-old said. "I'm super
happy with my 100 back. It
really got me pumped up
for the 200 free."
Grevers touched ahead of
teammate David Plummer
in the 100 backstroke, and
there were Americans on
the podium in all five finals.
Conor Dwyer picked up a
silver behind France's Yan-
nick Agnel in the 200 free,
and Jessica Hardy chipped
in with a bronze in the 100
breaststroke won by Lithu-
ania's Ruta Meilutvte.
The only disappoint-
ment for the U.S. was Ryan
Lochte, who labored to a
fourth-place finish in the
200 free.
"'It wasn't my night," the
three-time Olympian said.
"But I have to put it behind
me because I still have
many races to swim."
He hopes to compete in
seven events in Barcelona,
despite not being able to
train as much as usual this
year while taking part in
his reality television show,
"What Would Ryan Lochte
Do?"
"It was kind of a tough
swim for him," Bowman
said. "He .has obviously
not had a season with his
characteristic preparation.
But he's racing tough. He'll
be back tomorrow. He'll be.
fine."

With history in sight, Park keeps cool


ST. ANDREWS, Scotland
Tnbee Park once felt she could
walk down the streets of Seoul
as the No.1 player in women's
golf without being recognized.
That was two months ago.
Now she can't even make it
through a toll booth.
The week before she set out to'
make history at St. Andrews, the
25-year-old Park
"went home to
South Korea to,
visit family and
friends. She was
surprised by the
Doug number of people
EbrS ,;9on who met her at
K ,,-,,--f- the airport, and
who looked her
way when she was out in public
dressed in regular clothes. '
"I was driving by the toll gate
and some lady was giving me a toll
. ticket and she was like, 'Oh, are you
Inbee Park?' And she was stopping
my car," Park said. "So there was a
lot of episodes there.".
It helps to be on the verge of do-
ing something no other golfer in
this Royal & Ancient game has ever
achieved.
Slam or not, Park has a shot at,
something grand.
On an Old Course that even in
sunshine is dripping with history,
she goes after an unprecedented
fourth straight major this year at
the Women's British Open. Park is
the heavy favorite at St. Andrews,
much like Tiger Woods when he
won on the Old Course in 2000 to
complete the career Grand Slam.
The gray old town doesn't have
the same energy level as when a
claret jug is on offer, though Park's
name is part of every conversa-
tion. Woods (2000-01) and Mickey
Wright (1961-62) are the only
players to have won four straight

Inbee Park will try to become the first women's golfer to win four straight majors
in one year this week at the Women's British Open.


professional majors, though never
in the same calendar year.
The debate is whether to call it
a Grand Slam if Park were to win.
The LPGA Tour added a fifth major
this year, the Evian Championship
in France. The modern version of
a Grand Slam is about four majors.
The original version of the Grand
Slam is about winning.them all.
It's a nice problem to have, and it
doesn't need any definition except
to note that it has never been done.
What's amazing is how quickly
Park reached this point.
Turn back.the calendar two
months, and Park already was satis-
fied with her season. She won the
first LPGA Tour major of the year
at Kraft Nabisco Championship,
which helped her to regain her spot
at No. 1 in the world ranking.
But the dominant player of her
sport?
She sure didn't look that way,


especially if anyone happened to
be watching a stretch of holes at
the Bahamas Classic. On a 145-yard
hole, her tee shot was 10 yards short
and 20 yards wide of the green. On
the next hole, a longer par 3 over
a pond and into the breeze, Park
fanned a 4-iron so badly that it
landed in the middle of the lake.
She missed the cut. She didn't
break par in any .round of her next
tournament and finished middle of
the pack.
Since then?
Park looks to be somewhere be-
tween unstoppable and unbeatable.
She won the LPGA Champion-
ship in a playoff over Catriona
Matthew, and then became made
it three straight majors by making
the toughest test in golf look like a
breeze in her U.S. Women's Open
victory at Sebonack Golf Club.
