Police: Bascom man sold cocaine to undercover officers
BY ANGIE COOK
Authorities on Tuesday wrapped up a lengthy investigation into the "cocaine distribution enterprise"
of a Bascom man, according to a statement Bowers from the. Jack-
son County Drug Task Force.
The result was the arrest of 36year-old Neporah"Tray" Bowers III and the execution of a search warrant at a Boomerang Road residence near Bascom. Information from community members about Bowers and the drug activity surrounding a residence on Malibu Road, also near Bascom, led task force
members to begin a series of undercover cocaine purchases from Bowers between August 2013 and January of this year. A total of five buys were made in that area from-Bowers. Based on the buys, authorities secured an. arrest warrant for Bowers, which investigators executed June 10 at.a residence owned by Bowers' mother on Boomerang Road.
During Bowers' arrest, a small amount of marijuana was recovered and probable cause developed to obtain a warrant to search the residence. That evening, during a search of the home and vehicles in the yard, the task force seized $8,426 in cash that was concealed throughout the search site.
That money, according to the
statement, was "indicative of drug proceeds."
In addition to the money, 23 firearms, including an AR-15style assault rifle with a loaded, high-capacity magazine: various shotguns and rifles: and semi-automatic and revolverstyle pistols were recovered. Authorities are still

Art '101: How to think
outside the cube
Local artist Richard Tabor sketches a cube in a two-dimensional space in a studio on Russ Street in Marianna Thursday. Behind hinm, Tabor's painting, "'Omen of Death, Catcher of Souls," stands against the wall. According to Tabor, mythology and folklore play a large part in the inspiration for his artwork.
Visiting artist offers free workshop on the subject
Are yoti an artist who has trouble with perspective or other relational aspects of creating? There's a free local workshop this Saturday that might be just what you need to get a handle on those issues.
The drawing workshop is called "Redefining the Cube." It's being put on at the library in Marianna by a recent University of West Florida graduate who has led several workshops on that topic and others, including his specialty of printmaking. The two-hour session starts at 9 a.m. in the conference center of the library on Green Street.

e he knows that
illions of teetotalling
Christians disagree, Father William Martin believes he can make a theological case for the moderate consumption of beer through a simple use of evangelistic math. "Beer is the universal beverage. If you want to sit down and have a friendly, personal conversation with about 90 percent of the people in this world, then that is probably going to take place over a beer - that is, if you want them to open up and level with you," said Martin, who is - logically enough - the author of a chatty book called "The Beer Drinker's Guide to God."
"Think about it. If you're serious about talking to ordinary people about God, are you telling me that you don't want a chance to sit down and connect with about 90 percent of the world?" Martin is aware that it's easier for an Episcopal priest to make this case than it would be for clergy in many, but, not all, doc-
trinally conservative Prot flocks. In an admirable d stration of restraint, he r the temptation to open hi with the old proverb that ever two or three Episcor are gathered together, "y always find a fifth." Inste ,went with Catholic wisdom St. Bridget of Kildare: "I like a great lake of the fin for the King of Kings." Then again, the great Pro Reformer John Calvin too of his salary in barrels of and the feisty German t gian Martin Luther was, be told, a German Luthera wrote classic hymn texts -

Since Martin grew up steeped
in the traditions of the Church of Christ in Texas, he is very familiar with conservative arguments against the use of alcohol and
hly e is quick to quote biblical injunctions against drunkenness.

- such "God has entrusted us with
many very good gifts that can be abused and that, if we make the wrong choices, can even be turned into addictions," said Martin, who has long worked with Alcoholics Anonymous to help parishioners and others wrestle with alcohol abuse. When doing premarital counseling, the priest is also open about the fact that he is divorced.
"Food, money wine, sex, sports and even religion are all good things - God made them all
- but they can easily be twisted and turned into obsessions that wreck people's lives," he said.
"When we are facing these kinds of issues we have to be honest and deal with all of that. We have to be tough and tell the whole and holy trith." While he is quick to joke about the theological significance of beer, Martin is convinced that a serious issue is looming in the background.
Far too often, he said, religious believers are less than honest with themselves as they consis-
tently try to divide their daily lives into things that are real and things that are religious. He noted this wisdom from the late Johnny Cash: "I am not a Christian artist. I am an artist who is a Christian."
"We have driven unnecessary wedges between spirituality and service, politics and piety, worship and work," argues Martin, early in'his book. "We have drawn lines in the sand between the sacred and the secular, the profound and the profane. We have opted for either the baptismal font or the watering hole, for approaching the altar rail or bellying up to the bar.We assume we have to distill out the goofy to reveal what is godly.
"God makes no distinctions. God made it all, blesses it all and uses it all to further God's living purposes in this world."
Terry Mattingly is the director of the Washington Journalism Center at the
Council for Christian Colleges and
Universities and leads the GetReligion.org project to study religion and the news.

Orlando's International Drive getting face lift
The Associated Press
ORLANDO - Joshua Wallack originally thought he was just buying a patch of land off Orlando's International Drive that would one day house a parking lot for his restaurant group's newest venture in. central Florida. But when several stakeholders opposed having a lot on the proposed site, he agreed to a new spot. There was just one problem.
"It was like, 'What the heck are we going to do with the land we were going to use to park cars on?" Wallack said.
A year later, he's now looking forward to being a major part of the latest face-lifts to one of Orlando's most visited areas. By 2016 the Orlando International Drive District, a first of its kind when it was established in 1993, will h9use two new entertainment complexes. Mango's Tropical Cafe Orlando, co-owned by Wallack and his father, David, announced plans this month to bring the world's tallest roller coaster 570-foot The Skyscraper
- and the $200 million, 495,000-square-foot Skyplex indoor entertainment
complex to I-Drive. It will join the nearby I-Drive 360 shopping, dining and entertainment complex being developed by Unicorp National Developments and including Merlin Entertainments, trio of attractions - the 400-foot Orlando Eye Ferris wheel, Madame Tussauds wax museum and Sea Life Orlando aquarium. Skyplex and I-Drive 360, which officials hope will be a new centerpiece for the well-traveled tourist vein, will also be joined by several new restaurants and projects, including a new Titanic: The Experience museum. "Other than Walt Disney World, every other major attraction is on International Drive," Joshua Wallack said. "There are about 60 million tourists and conventioneers coming every year to the Orlando tourist corridor, and if you have critical mass with your attractions, you're gonna get lots of customers. I think International Drive is in a renaissance period."
International Drive already employs about 32,000 people, and the Wallacks said the projects will add between 800 and
1,000 new jobs. Rosen Hotels President and Chief Operating Officer Harris Rosen said it is a welcome boon for an area that he's been affiliated with for 40 years. Rosen has seven hotels in Orlando, including five on International Drive. His Rosen Centre also just opened Harry's Poolside Bar & Grill last week. "It's really quite extraordinary what's going on," Rosen said. "We're really offering an abundance of fun activities. What it means is that we're going to be able to keep people on the Drive longer. Clearly, people will go to Disney, SeaWorld and other places ... But I think they'll also say 'Let's spend a day on International Drive and see all the amenities it has.'"
James Paulding, head of new openings for Merlin Entertainments North America, said the timing to be on I-Drive is perfect. "International Drive is having a new lease on life," he said. "We're not looking at taking a whole day of people's schedule. We're kind of trying to fit into people's vacation time and provide something for locals as well."
This artist's rendering provided by Mango's Tropical Cafe shows the 570-foot Skyscraper roller coaster expected to open in 2016 in Orlando, Fla. The Skyscraper coaster, owned by Mango's Tropical Cafe in Orlando and Miami's South Beach, will be part of a 495,000-square-foot Skyplex indoor entertainment complex.
Syrian-born artist now helps child war refugees
The Associated Press
TAMPA - When Lina Safar moved from her native Syria to Tampa with her U.S.-born husband in 2010, she assumed she would return occasionally, see her family, walk in her neighborhood and shop at her favorite markets. A year later, her country was engulfed by civil war, and Safar watched in horror from afar. Safar's father, a physician, was killed while helping the
-wounded. Her mother and ,brother fled and joined ISafar at her Tampa town home.
There's no way of telling when Safar will return for a visit, if ever. The 31-yearold children's book illustrator now remembers her country through her own paintings - and by helping Syria's displaced children. Safar recently illustrated a series of workbooks for Syrian refugee children as part of a program sponsored by Mercy Corps, a humanitarian aid
Mercy Corps spokeswoman Andie Long said Safar's illustrations will be
in books in English and in Arabic that train adults how to properly care for displaced children. There are also accompanying workbooks for the children.
According to UNICEF, some 5.5 million Syrian children have been affected by the war, with more than 1 million living as refugees in neighboring Mideast countries. "These are circumstances where "the number of people affected is so enormous," Long said. SSafar studied art in Damascus and met her husband there. She was working with international publishers on illustrating children's books while in Syria, and continued when she married and came to the U.S. She said work on the project for Syrian children affected her deeply "I was constantly thinking about Syria. But not only Syria today, not the present, the sad situation, but going through a lot of memories, going through and trying to.re-create the details of the everyday life I remember," she said. The book titled "My

Story" provides a way for the displaced children to write and illustrate their own histories, feelings and memories while giving them a -measure of control over their lives.
Safar's ethereal, colorful drawings frame openended questions such as, "My favorite animal is ..." "Our family traditions ..." or "My goals are ..." "It was very helpful for
me, to feel that I was able to contribute in one way . or another," she said. "This was just a small piece of me that I could send back to those children and the people of Syria." -
No charges for Kaepernick, 2 other players
The Associated Press
MIAMI - San Francisco 49ers star quarterback Colin Kaepernick and two other NFL players will not face charges in an incident involving a woman at a downtown hotel, prosecutors announced Thursday. A memo released by the Miami-Dade County State Attorney's Office said there was insufficient evidence that any crime was committed in the hotel room April 1. Tests indicated the woman was not sexually assaulted, and other evidence backed up the players' contention that nothing happened. In fact, the memo by Assistant State Attorney Laulra Adams described the woman as incoherent when police and firerescue officers responded to 911 calls to the room at the Viceroy Hotel.
- She had to be sedated in order to be taken to the hospital, where she was temporarily involuntarily committed for. her own safety, the memo says. "When she heard the
_officers' voices, the com-
plainant started screaming incoherently about Jesus and devils," Adams wrote.
A hotel security officer told police that when he arrived at the room, the woman began praying, "asking God to forgive her of her sins" and began screaming in. words the security officer couldn't understand, according to the memo.
She banged her
head against the walls and . started kicking uncontrollably. At the hospital, doctors noted that she was "severely agitated" and appeared to be inan altered mental state, although no evidence of drugs beyond marijuana was detected in her system, Adams wrote.
The woman had told police she and the three players had drinks and smoked marijuana earlier in the night.
Kaepernick consistently denied any wrongdoing. Earlier this month, the 49ers gave the 26-yearold a $126 million, sixyear contract extension that will keep him in San Francisco through 2020.
He was drafted in 2011 in the second round out of Nevada.
The other players in the room that night were 49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton and Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette. The prosecutor's memo says that an attorney for Kaepernick and Lockette told investigators they
met the woman about a year ago in Atlanta and that she and Kaepernick had sex.
The woman later told Kaepernick she was pregnant, and he cut off contact with her, including changing his phone number, the memo says. Eventually, she learned Kaepernick and Lockette would be in Miami and
made' arrangements to visit them, traveling by Greyhound bus. After the woman's behavior deteriorated, Kaepernick 'contacted a nearby friend and decided to leave the hotel. "I'm leaving right now I'm terrified," Kaepernick texted the friend, according to the prosecutor's memo.

Greening first enters the. tree via the jumping plant lice known as Asian citrus psyllids. The iice suck on leaf sap and leave behind bacteria. The bacteria starve the tree of nutrients, leading to sour fruit. The tree eventually dies. "Citrus production in Florida may be at a 30year low, but we're not ready to 'throw in the

Study: Teens are drinking less, texting more
The Associated Press
NEW YORK - American teens are smoking less, drinking less and fighting less. But they're texting behind the wheel and spending a lot of time on video games and computers, according to the- government's latest study of worrisome behavior.
Generally speaking, the news is godd. Most forms of drug use, weapons use and risky sex have been going down since the government started doing the survey every two years in 1991. Teens are wearing bicycle helmets and seat belts more, too. . "Overall, young people have more healthy behaviors than they did 20 years ago," said Dr. Stephanie Zaza, who oversees the study at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
SThe results come from a study of 13,000 U.S. high school students last spring. Participation was voluntary and required parerital permission, but responses were anonymous. SHighlights of the study, released Thursday:. SMOKING
Less than 16 percent of the teens smoked a ciga'rette in the previous month
- the lowest level since the government started doing the survey, when the rate was more than 27 percent. Another CDC study had already put the teen smoking rate below 16 percent, but experts tend to treat this
In this Aug. 20, 2012, file photo, Johnnae Morris, 16, a team manager for the Blue Springs High School football team, relaxes while texting in the press box at the end of practice at the school in Blue Springs, Mo. A study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released Thursday found a surge in number of kids who spent three or more hours on an average school day on screened electronics other than TV.
survey's result as the official number. It's "terrific news for America's health," said Matt Myers, president of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. Even so, there are still about 2.7 million teens smoking, he said.
The survey did not ask about electronic cigarettes, which have exploded in popularity in the past few years.
Meanwhile, more than 23 percent of teens said they used marijuana in the pre-
vious month -- up from 15 percent in 1991. CDC officials said they could not tell whether marijuana or e-cigarettes have replaced traditional cigarettes among teens.
Among teen drivers, 41 percent had texted or emailed behind the wheel' in the previous month. That figure can't be compared to the 2011 survey, though, because the CDC changed the question this time. The latest sury6y
gives texting-while-driving figures for 37 statesranging from 32 percent in Massachusetts to 61 percent in South Dakota. DRINKING
Fewer teens said they drank alcohol. Drinking of soda was down, too. About 35 percent said they had had booze in the previous month, down from 39 percent in 2011. About 27 percent said they drank soda each day. That was only a slight change from 2011 but a sizable drop from 34
percent in 2007. SEX
The proportion of teens who had sexin theprevious three months held steady at about 34 percent from 2011. Among them, condom use was unchanged at about 60 percent.
The percentage who attempted suicide in the previous year held steady at about 8 percent.
TV. viewing for three or more hours a day has 'stalled at around 32 percent since 2011. But in one of the largest jumps seen in, the survey, there was a surge in the proportion of kids who spent three or more hours on an average school day on other kinds of recreational screen time, such as playing video or computer games or using a computer or smartphone for something other than schoolwork That number rose to 41 percent, from 31 percent in 2011.
Health experts advise that teens get no more than two hours of recreational screen time a day, and that includes all screens - including Xboxes, smartphones and televisions. Although video gaming is up, particularly among teen boys, some researchers believe most of the screen-time increase is due to social media use. And it's probably not a good thing, they say. Through texts and social media, young people are doing more communicat-
ing and living in an online world in which it's easier to think they're the center of the universe, said Marina Krcmar, aWake Forest University professor who studies teen screen time. That can lead to a form of extended adolescence, she said.
It can also distract youngsters from schoolwork, exercise and other healthy activities, she said. FIGHTING
Fights at school fell by half in the past 20 years. And there was a dramatic drop in kids reporting they had been in a fight anywhere in the preceding year - about 25 percent, down from 33 percent two years earlier. The addition of more guards and other securitymeasuresmaybea factor, saidschoolviolence expert Todd DeMitchell of the University of New Hampshire.
Fighting may be down, but it's not uncommon, according to some teens at the High School of Fashion Industries in Lower Manhattan. Two students said they saw roughly one fight a w e e k . : , '
"It's like 'The Hunger Games,'" said 14-year-old Maya Scott. She said she had been in a fight during the current schoolyear. A few minutes later, as if to prove her point, three girls exchanged words and nearly came to blows outside the front entrance before a'school lunch worker stepped in and separated them.-
Political split outgrows the voting boothmin US
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON -Political polarization in America has broken out of the voting booth. SA new survey from the PewResearchCenter finds Americans are divided
-by ideology and partisanship not only when they cast ballots, but also 'in choosing where to live, where to get their news and with whom to associate.
And peaceful coexistence is -increasingly difficult.
According to the poll, the share of Americans who hold acros4-theboard conservative or libSeral views has doubled in the last decade, from 10 percent in 2004 to 21 percent today.
- Only39 percent ofAmericans have an even mix of liberal and conservative positions, down from 49 percent 10 years ago. . The numbers of ideological purists are larger among- the politically engaged than the general public, suggesting the ideological stalemates that have become more common in Washington and statehouses around the country arq likely to continue. ' One-third of those who say. they regularly vote in primaries have all-ornothing ideological views, as do 41 percent who say they have donated money to a campaign. And among partisans, ideological purity is now the standard. Majorities in both parties hold either uniformly liberal (on the Democratic side) or conservative (among the GOP) views.
The shift toward ideological purity has been more visible among Republicans due to the popularity of the tea party, seen most recently this week in House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's loss to a tea-party-based challenger in Virginia, but the survey found it's happen-ing in nearly equal measure among Democrats. I Those differences in vis-
ibility, are partly due to the Democratic holrd on the White House, adording to Pew Research Center Vice President Michael Dimock.
"Levels of alarm abOut the direction of the' nation, and about the'threat' the other party poses to the country, are substantially higher on the right than on the left right now, and at least in part this reflects the fact that Barack Obama is in the White House," Dimock said. But Democrats have expressed their share of distrust in the past, he noted in an email. "Democrats felt pretty passionately about George W. Bush and the GOP in his second termm" he said.
The survey used a battery of 10 questions on 'issues such as regulation of blisiness,. use of the military, the environment and immigration to assess ideological leanings. Across nine of the 10 issues tested, the views of Democrats and Republicans have grown further apart since 1994. These ideological shifts have been accompanied by increasing animosity across party lines, and those on opposite sides of the partisan-and ideological divide are now more apt to separate themselves . in their personal lives as well.
About eight in 10 Democrats say they have an unfavorable opinion of the Republican Party, and for 82 percent of Republicans, the feeling is mutual. This cross-party dislike has increased by double digits on both sides. Among those with ideologically consistent views in each party, many go further than dislike and say they see the other side as a threat to the nation's well-being.
Republicans with consistefitly , conservative views are more apt than Democrats with a strictly, liberal view to see the opposite party as a threat, however, 66 percent to 50 percent. .
Amid all this rancor,
partisans and those with clear ideological'Iatings are more ofter' htosf, ing to associate, only with those who hold views similar to their own. Two-thirds -of consistent consOrvatives:' and half of consistent liberals say most of their close friends, share their .political views.
Three in 10 on each side of the divide say it's important to them to live in a place where most peo-! ple share their political views.
And one-quarter of consistent liberals say they'd be unhappy if an immediate family member married a Republican, 30 percent of consistent conservatives say the same about a union with a Democrat.
The findings are based on a telephone survey of 10,013 randomly selected adults nationwide, conducted between Jan. 23 and March 16. Results based on the full sample have a margin of sampling error of. plus or minus 1.1 percentage points.
Smithsoman asksjudge's help with bug collection
T he Associated Press
A;'W" SING'ON- Cai J. Drake spent
life studying bugs, everything from aphids to water striders. When he died in 1965, the entomologist left his life savings and his vast insect collection to the Smithsonian. But now Drake'swill has become something of a pest. The Smithsonian Institution says that after nearly half a century, it's having a hard time carrying out Drake's wishes, includingfulfilling the mission he gave the institution for his money: Buy more bugs. So the Smithsonian is asking a federal judge inWashington fbr permission to modify Drake's will. The -Smithsonian says it's only had to ask to modify a will once or twice in the past half-century. But carrying out certain elements of Drake's will has "become impossible, impracticable and wasteful," Department of Justice law-yers wrote on the Smithsonian's behalf in asking a judge inlate April to approve the modifications it wants. SLawyers wrote that over the years the Smithsonian has used Drake's dollars to purchase about a dozen insect collections, but now buying new bugs is tough.
Lawyers wrote' that's because of changes to an environmental law made in the.1980s. Those changes increased the red tape surrounding insect collecting, such as documents needed to prove the collections were made legally. SThe Smithsonian wants to use the inrome from Drake's investment, which

That's the type of insects. Drake collected, a group that includes bedbugs and other bugs with mouths like hypodermic needles.
The Smithsonian also wants to be able to lend items from Drake's collection, a no-no according, to Drake's will because in his day, insects often broke during shipping.
And the institution wants to integrate Drake's collection into its collection as a whole.
Right now, Drake's approximately 250,000 carefully preserved specimens
- that's dead bugs to the uninitiated
- are kept in separate. cabinets at the National Museum of Natural.History, as he asked. But the Smithsonian says that taxes "increasingly scarce collection space" and is inconvenient for researchers who use the collection on the fifth floor of the natural history museum's east wing, a space not generally accessible to the some 8-million people who visit the museum every year.
There, rows of white metal cabinets hold wooden boxes that pull out like dresser drawers, revealing glass-topped cases of insects.
Some specimens are so small that several would fit on a pencil eraser. Others are closer to fist-sized. The space smells like the chemical in mothballs, which is used to keep living pests away.

Neymar leads Brazil past Croatia, 3-1
The Associated Press
SAO PAULO - Neymar gave Brazil a winning start to its home World Cup, scoring twice to lead the host nation to an unconvincing 3-1 victory over Croatia in the opening game on Thursday. Brazil had a disastrous start when defender Marbelo found his own net while trying to clear a low cross by Ivica Olicin the 11th minute, but Neymar then showed why the nation's highhopes are all pinned on him. The 22-year-old forward equalized in the 29th mini ute, clearing a defender in midfield before making a run toward the edge of the area and firing a perfectly placed low shot that went in off the post. The game turned on a controversial penalty awarded by Japanese referee Yuichi Nishimura in the 71st mintite when striker Fred went down inside the area under minimal contact fronim defender Dejan Lovren. Neymar scored from the spot and the Croatians were furious.
"If that was a penalty, we should be playing basket. ball," said Croatia coach Niko Kovac. "Those kinds of fouls are penalized there."
"That is shameful, this is not a World Cup referee. He had one kind of criteria for them and another for us. The rules were not the same," said Kovac. As Croatia searched desperately for an equalizer, Oscar added to the lead in the first minute of injury time with a toe poke from just outside the penalty area. Croatia had a few good chances toward the end and had a goal disallowed in the 83rd after the referee ruled Olic had fouled Brazil goalkeeper Julio Cesar. The host nation hasn't lost in the opening match in the last nine World Cups. South Africa was held by Mexico to a 1-1 draw four years ago. A draw would have been a huge disappointment for Brazil, which had won its opening match the last eight times. The five-time champion entered the home tournament having won 15 of its last 16 games, including

Kaymer seizes US Open lead with 65
The Associated Press
PINEHURST - Much to his delight, Martin Kaymer discovered that Pinehurst No. 2 was even more different than he imagined in the U.S. Open. This wasn't the beast of a course that Kaymer and so many other players were expecting.
This was a day for scoring.
Kaymer made six birdies Thursday afternoon, three on the final five holes, that sent the 29-year-old German to the lowest score in three Opens held at Pinehurst No. 2. He made a 6foot par putt on the 18th hole for a 5-under 65 and a three-shot lead. "It was more playable than I thought," he said. "I think that made a big difference mentally, that you feel like there are actually some birdies outthere, not only bogeys."
So much was made of the new look at No. 2, which was restored to its old look from more than a half-century ago. There also was plenty of talk that this U.S. Open would be as tough as any U.S. Open. When he finished his finaldayofpracticeWednesday under a broiling sun, Kaymer was asked what it would take to-win. "I said plus 8 because the way the golf course played on Monday,
Tuesday, Wednesday," he said. "But obviously, they softened the conditions a little bit so it was more playable. So hopefully, I'm not right with the plus 8. I1 would be disappointed." Former U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell took the conservative route on his way to a 68 that featured 15 pars, one bogey, one birdie and one eagle. He was joined by Kevin Na, Brendon de Jonge and Fran Quinn, a 49year-old who last played a U.S. Open in 1996, when Tiger Woods was still an amateur.
"This was a golf course where I spent the last few days just preparing myself mentally for the challenge, really, knowing that this golf course wasn't going to give much and it was only going to take," McDowell said. "I'm assuming they put some water on this place this morning. And we were able to take advantage of that a little bit early on and actually think about getting at some of those flags."
Brandt Snedeker, who had a chance at 30 on his front nine, had to settle for being'part of a large group at69 that included 20-yearold Jordan Spieth, Henrik Stenson, Matt Kuchar and Dustin Johnson. The 15 players to shoot in the 60s were the most for an opening round at the

"Last night I thought that it's going to be very, very firm in the afternoon," he said. "But actually, it was more playable than I thought."
Not everyone was able to take advantage. Defending champion Justin Rose had a 72, making his bid a little tougher to become the first repeat winner in 25 years.

3 feet, and a high draw with a 3-wood to bout 20 feet on the par-5 fifth for a two-putt birdie. A few longer putts at the end really dressed up the score. He hit a 6-iron at the flag on the 16th hole and made a 12-foot birdie putt, and then hit another 6-iron at the par-3 .17th to about 10 feet for birdie. Kaymer tied the course record with a 63 in the opening round when he won The Players Championship last month, ending a drought of some 18 months. That only boosted his confidence, and the 65 on Thursday only adds to it.
Even so, he realizes it's, only one round, and that the course probably won't be so kind or gentle the rest of the way. "I would have never expected myself to shoot such a low round at Pinehurst ... but it's a good round of golf," he said. "I wasn't expecting it. I'm not freaking out about it. It's the first round of a very, very important tournament. I put myself so far in a good position, but.we have three rounds to go. The golf course can change a lot.
"If other people want to make more out of it, it's fine," he said. "But for me, it's a great start into one of the most important weeks of the year."
Tempers flare as Rockies beat Braves in series finale
The Associated Press
DENVER - Corey Dickerson hit Atlanta catcher Gerald Laird with his backswing and tempers quickly flared, setting off a tense sequence and leading to several ejections Thursday as the Colorado Rockies beat the Braves 10-3. The Rockies led 8-3 in the eighth when Dickerson knocked off Laird's facemask with his swing - it appeared accidental. A stunned Laird was on the ground for several minutes before walking off the field under his own power and being replaced by Evan Gattis. With his next pitch, At-, lanta reliever David Carpenter hit Dickerson in the thigh and was ejected. Rockies manager Walt Weiss bolted from the dugout and began yelling at Carpenter, as well as in the general direction of Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez.

Brazil's Neymar (left) scores his second goal from the penalty spot during the group A World Cup soccer match between Brazil and Croatia in the Itaquerao Stadium in Sao Paulo, Brazil on Thursday. Brazil won 3-1.0
62,100 fans in attendance, Brazil got off to a slow start and allowed Croatia to threaten early. It opened the scoring with one of its first chances as Marcelo failed to clear Olic's cross. The ball got slightly redirected by striker Nikica Jelavic before the Brazilian defender touched it backward into the goal.
The crowd stayed behind the team despite the setback and Brazil started creating more chances. Midfielder Paulinho and
playmaker Oscar both came close to scoring, but it was Neymar who found the net with his wellstruck low shot into the far corner.
"I wouldn't say it was the best game, but it's the World Cup debut," said Oscar. "I'm representing the national team and I'm giving it my best. And I managed to do this."
The penalty kick was awarded when Fred appeared to be tugged inside

Hoyer 'securely ahead' of Manziel for job
The Associated Press
BEREA, Ohio - Johnny Manziel's No. 2 jersey has double meaning. He's behind Brian Hoyer. Browns coach Mike Pettine said Hoyer is "securely ahead" in the competition to be Cleveland's starting quarterback this season, but his lead over Manziel isn't "insurmountable." After the Browns ended their three-day mandatory minicamp Thursday, Pettine sized up the battle as a friendly fight that will heat up when the team opens training camp late in July. Pettine said Hoyer, who is recovering from knee surgery and has been limited during practices, still has a grip on the starting job - for now. "It's been hard to evaluate because Brian hasn't been able to take the 11-on-11l reps, but when we put phe depth chart together, Brian will be No. 1," he said. SPettine agrees with Browns general manager Ray Farmer's evaluation that Manziel, the wildly
popular 2012 Heisman Trophy winner and firstround draft pick from Texas A&M, has some catching up to do.
Manziel is trailing Hoyer, but maybe not by much. "I don't think it's insurmountable," Pettine said. "Brian is securely ahead of him right now, but we will compete and we will decide. The issue for us as a staff is finding the right time to name a starter. If you wait too late, then nobody's ready for the opener, if you do it too soon, then it wasn't a true competition.
"That will be part of our discussions as well as far as OK, here's the plan, here's a date that we want to go ahead and name him." During recent workouts open to the media, Manziel has shown some of the flashes thatearned him the Johnny Football nickname in college. But there have also been moments where" he looked like another lost rookie.
Pettine made it clear the Browns have not made any

decisions and the competition is still in its infancy. "We haven't really been in the mode of thinking, 'He's this far ahead today. How much was the gap closed?'" Pettine said. "They're still learning the basics of the offense. The rookies haven't been here very long. They're playing catch-up from a play-
book standpoint. So at this point, we really weren't keeping score." Pettine kept Hoyer and Manziel off limits to reporters this week, hoping to contain a story that's expected to only grow. In the next few weeks, Pettine and his staff will decide how to best divide the snaps between Hoyer
and Manziel. Pettine said it's safe to assume the duties will be shared. "I don't know how even we'll get it, but there will definitely be times when Johnny will be with the ones (starters)," Pettine said. "It would be hard to evaluate if we didn't that. If there wasn't a competition, then it would just be strict-
ly ones and ones, twos and twos. We haven't met to go over that."
Pettine also plans to play Manziel with Cleveland's starting offense in exhibition games.
"If a guy has a chance to be a starter, I would think that you'd want to expose him to a starting defense if he was going to be the guy opening day," said Pettine. Manziel has made some headlines with his offthe-field antics in recent weeks. He partied poolside in Las Vegas with Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski and was filmed spraying champagne on patrons in a nightclub. Last weekend, he was in Austin, Texas, where he was photographed lying on an inflatable swan raft in a pool, drinking champagne. Pettine won't micromanage Manziel or any of his players as long as, they're not involved in anything that's criminal -or affects their jobs. But with a long break coming up, he's hoping all the Browns steer clear of danger.
Newton says his focus on ankle, not contract
The Associated Press
CHARLOTTE - Cam Newton said his focus is on getting back on the football field, not a new contract. The, Panthers quarterback said Wednesday he's happy for San Francisco's Colin Kaepernick, who recently signed a six-year, $126 million contract. He even sent a congratulatory text message to Kaepernick, who beat Newton and the Panthers in the NFC divisional playoffs 2310 in January.
The Panthers have talked about along-term contract for Newton but no deal has been completed. "For me, that's the last thing that's on my mind," Newton said.
Newton didn't practice Wednesday as he continues to rehab his left ankle following surgeryin March, but spoke to the media inside the stadium afterward. He said he wants to participate in next week's three-day minicamp, but isn't sure if he'll be ready. Newton and Kaepernick are linked in manyrespects because they came out of college the same year.

Buccaneers sign 1st-round draft pick Mike Evans
TAMPA - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed first-round draft pick Mike Evans. The 6-foot-5, 231-pound,. receiver from Texas A&M was the seventh overall pick in the draft and is expected to move into the starting lineup for an offense that ranked last in the NFL in yards gained last season. Evans was Johnny Manziel favorite target in
college, finishing with 151 receptions for 2,499 yards and 17 touchdowns in 26 games.
He notched the two highest single-game receiving performances in Texas A&M history with a 287-yard outing against Auburn and 279-yard day against Alabama. The Bucs announced the signing Thursday, the final day of the team's mandatory minicamp. Evans attended the workouts, but did not participate in drills because of a hamstring strain.

Jaguars get WRs Sanders, Brown back at practice JACKSONVILLE - Jacksonville Ja'guars receivers Ace Sanders and Mike Brown have returned from injuries.
Sanders (hamstring) and Brown (groin) missed more than a week of organized team activities. The Jaguars were down seven receivers because of injury last week, leaving them with four healthy ones. Sanders says it was "the most depressing thing
in the world. And then you've got the other four out there taking reps for the is, 2s and the 3s, and they're gasping for air. They're looking at you and I'm like, 'I want to help you, but I can't."'
Receivers Cecil Shorts III (calf), Marqise Lee (ankle) and Allen Robinson (hamstring), Tandon Doss (calf) and Lamaar Thomas (knee) remain sidelined.
They could be out for next week's mandatory, three-day minicamp.
From wire reports
kle. He's also been throwing passes on the side during six of the team's last nine OTA practices.
He said he's still experiences some pain in his ankle that reminds him he's not quite 100 percent. The team's three-day minicamp begins Tuesday.
"Physically I'm coming along fine and I'm on page right where I expected to be, but mentally I'm bored," Newton said. Newton said he's spent the last seven weeks pouring over game film from Last year and practice film from OTAs..
He acknowledged that while the extra time in the film room has been bentfiI ---'--- -saga"g'gg
cial, he said it has become "a little monotonous." ' When he returns to the field Newton will be looking to develop some chemistry with an overhauled corps or wide receivers. . The Panthers cut ties with their top four wide receivers from last year, including Newton's go-to guy Steve Smith.
The team added free agents Jerricho Cotchery, Jason Avant and Tiquan Underwood and drafted Kelvin Benjamin in the first round. While Newton wasn't ready to say this year's group of receivers is better than last year's, he did say they have a chip on their shoulders.

Dear Annie: I am in my mid-20s and hav been with my husband for seven years. Last year, whil I was attending school and working, my husband started an affair. I also discovered information about his cheating datingback three years. I have found texts, social-media messages and even a secret phone. My husband doesn't know that I am aware of his affair. We have a toddler, and I don't know what to do. I cannot believe the man I love has been unfaithful for so long and I just found out about it. I am seriously contemplating divorce, but I feel as if there is more to it. I think my husband may be a sex addict. This
is how his father treated his.mother for years, and maybe it's all he knows. I want to get him the help he needs, but I'm not sure how to handle the situation.
- A NURSE IN NEED Dear Nurse: This must be a terrible time for you, but you are making an awful lot of excuses for your husband's behavior. You need to tell him what you know and ask him to go with you for counseling. If he is a sex addict, he can get help. But if he refuses to do the necessary work to repair your marriage, you will have some tough decisions to make. Please get counseling on your own so you can do what is best for you and your child.
Jef Mallett, the "Frazz" cartoonist, said, "Writing well means never having to say,, 'I guess you had to be there.'" When the defenders play perfectly, declarer is sometimes unable to make his contract. On other deals, though, a defender will fail to find the killing play. Then declarer needs to take full benefit. In this deal, West cashes three club tricks against four hearts. He then shifts to a diamond. How should South continue?
A four-heart opening bid usually indfcates an eight-card suit. However, South decided to tell a small white lie because he was nonvulnerable and the opponents were vulnerable. West wondered if his side could do well, but he had too few points to act at the four-level. North and East had easy passes. WhenWest had to guess which suit to lead at trick four, he decided that South would be more likely to pre-empt when very short in the other major. Hence his diamond lead. (As you can see, a spade switch would have been lethal.) Now let's look at South's predicament. He needs to take three pointed-suit tricks to go with his seven trump winners. Should he finesse in spades or in diamonds?
Either is a pure guess. But he can slightly improve his chances. He should win with dummy's diamond ace, ruff a diamond in his hand, cash the heart ace, play a heart to dummy's nine and ruff another diamond.
Here, the king comes tumbling down. So South can draw trumps and claim. But if the diamond king does not appear, declarer can run his trumps, planning to fall back on the spade finesse.

No charges for Kaepernick, 2 other players
The Associated Press
MIAMI - San Francisco 49ers star quarterback Colin Kaepetnick and two other NFL players will not face charges in an incident involving a woman at a downtown hotel, prosecutors announced Thursday. A memo released by the Miami-Dade County State Attorney's Office said there was insufficient evidence that any crime was committed in the hotel room on April 1. Tests indicated the woman was not sexually assaulted and other evidence backed up the players' contention that nothing happened. In fact, the memo by Assistant State Attorney Laura Adams described the woman as incoherent when police and fire-rescue officers responded to 911 calls to the room at the Viceroy Hotel. She hid

Baseball Hall of Fame celebrates 75th anniversary
The Associated Press
- All that was missing was the Bambino - and the
On a rainy, late-spring
day that forced the festivities inside, the Baseball Hall of Fame celebrated its diamond anniversary on Thursday with more than 300 people gathered in the museum's showpiece
"It's a significant birthday. It's well worth celebrating," Cal Ripken said before he and fellow Hall of Famer Phil Niekro helped cut a piece of a huge birthday cake made for the occasion with the Hall of Fame's 75th anniversary logo in the middle. "It is
the history of baseball."
Stephen Clark, a Cooperstown native and grandson of one of the founders of the Singer Sewing Machine Co., and National League president Ford Frick were the main movers behind ihe creation of the Hall of Fame, and they champibned the idea based on the myth that Abner Doubleday invented baseball in Cooperstown.
SThe first sports hall of fame in the world opened in 1939 and has morphed from a one-room building into a 50,000-square-foot shrine with 40,000 artifacts and a library featuring 3
"We are baseball's vers'gion of the Smithsonian and the Library of Congress, all in one," said Hall of Fame Chairman Jane Forbes Clark, granddaughter of Stephen Clark. "It has made an indelible mark on this region and all of baseball. What a visionary my grandfather was, taking Cooperstown andgiving it things that would carry it
into the next century.
"Even though he saw the vorld in a much longerterm fashion than most, I think even he would be in awe of what's happened," she said,
The first class of inductees was elected in. 1936
- Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson, Christy Mathewson,, Honus Wagner and Babe Ruth - and the Hall of Fame opened three years later - 100 years after the Doubleday idea was born. Ruth was the centerpiece of that first class, and he attended the Hall of Fame's official opening on June 12, 1939. He was the last person to speak before Commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis officially opened the museum. "They started something here and the kids are keeping the ball rolling," Ruth said that day on the front steps of the Hall of Fame as 15,000 fans craned their necks to get a glimpse of Jthe Bambino. "I'm very
glad that in my day I was able to earn my place. And I hope youngsters of today have the same opportunity to experience such feeling."
Ruth, who made his major league debut nearly a century ago - on July 11, 1914 - would be 119 today, and yet his impact remains as profound as ever. And he was on the mark with his observation. The Hall of Fame has had nearly 16 million visitors since its opening day, and to help mark its milestone birthday a new Babe Ruth exhibit will operf on Friday.
The 180-square-foot display-"Babe Ruth: His Life and Legend" - will feature artifacts that tell his whole story, including a trophy presented to him by his socalled "Baltimore admirers" on May20, 1922. That's .the day Ruth returned to the Yankees after being suspended by Landis for the start of the season. for illegally barnstorming after the 1921 World Series. Fans from his hometown made the trip north to New York just to welcome him back. Also to be included in the revamped exhibit is a recently discovered film
showing Ruth at spring training in March 1920. It's believed to be the earliest known footage of Ruth in a Yankee uniform. Ruth was a figure larger than life, and his impact on the Hall of Fame has been like no other. The Babe Ruth Room opened in 1992 and quickly became the museum's most popular exhibit. The Hall of Fame library has an 8-inch-thick research archive about his life and 140 books that recount his story. Ruth donated a uniform, spikes, glove, and a
special bat from 1927 with 28 hand-carved notches around the trademark. It was whittled in the dugout for each home run he hit with the big wooden stick that record-breaking season of 60 home runs. Also featured in the new exhibit will be: the agreement that transferred Ruth, Ernie Shore and Ben Egan from the Baltimore Orioles of the International League to the Boston Red Sox in July 1914; the typewritten notes - including "To say'Babe Ruth' is to say'Baseball'" - used by American League
president Will Harridge for his speech on Babe Ruth Day at Yankee Stadium on April 27, 1947; and Ruth's jersey from June 13, 1948, when his No. 3 was officially retired.
Hall of Fame officials say research has determined that the jersey is the one Ruth wore throughout his retirement, starting with his cameo appearance in "Pride of the Yankees" in 1942. He died of cancer in August 1948 at age 53. Ruth and HankAaron are the only players to have exhibits devoted solely to them in the Hall of Fame.
