“We advocated strongly

MAXTON — A 19-yearold Rowland teenager died
Friday in a Charlotte hospital
hours after sheriff’s deputies
pulled him from the waters of
a Maxton pond, according to
the Robeson County Sheriff’s
Office.
Devonte Adrian Montgomery
was swimming on Thursday
with friends in a “very deep”
pond at 521 Blackfoot Trail
when he suffered an asthma
attack and went under water,
Robeson
County
Sheriff
Kenneth Sealey said. He said
Montgomery became caught in
the root of a plant in the water
and was unable to reach the
surface for air.
Deputies Stan McNeill and
Gary Altman responded to
an emergency call at about
6 p.m., according to Sealey.
Montgomery had been underwater for “a couple of minutes”
when deputies arrived, he said.
Sheriff’s Maj. Randy McGirt
said Montgomery was treated at Scotland Health Care
System before he was taken
to Charlotte Mecklenburg
Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 3:25 a.m.
Friday.
Sealey said Montgomery’s
friends had tried to save him
by throwing a chain into the
pond for him to hold on to, but
they could no longer see him
after he had submerged.
Montgomery is the second
Robeson County resident to be
pulled from the water in less
than a week. A Lumberton man
drowned in White Lake while
swimming on Monday.

LUMBERTON — Residents on
Beulah Church Road woke up to an
unexpected visitor Friday morning —
a 12-foot-long alligator.
Minnie Odum, who spotted the
animal in a neighbor’s backyard at 6
a.m., said it’s not the first time she’s
seen an alligator in the neighborhood,
and she occasionally spots them crossing roads to find water in dry weather.
State Trooper Ray Harris said it was
the biggest alligator he’s seen in his 14

years working in Robeson County.
Harris said the animal weighed close
to 400 pounds, and could be between
60 to 80 years old.
Harris said the animal had most
likely just fed because it did not
appear to be vicious or dangerous
towards the small crowd of people
that had gathered around it. He said
the animal seemed content resting in
the shade.
A state Wildlife officer was called
to capture and relocate the animal,
Harris said.

Bill legalizes gaming nights for nonprofits
RALEIGH (AP) — Nonprofit
groups could host fundraisers in
the style of a Las Vegas casino
night under a bill in the North
Carolina House.
The measure in the House
Judiciary Committee would
allow fundraisers to include
poker, craps and other games
at hotels, restaurants and other
locations.
Charities, trade and union
organizations, social welfare
groups and others could apply
for permits with North Carolina
Alcohol Law Enforcement to
host gaming nights that give
out non-cash prizes. Nonprofits
would be limited to four events
per year, and facilities couldn’t
host more than two fundraisers
per week.
Commercial and charitable bingo is legal in the state.
Gambling is also legal at a
Cherokee casino in the western
part of the state and through the
North Carolina lottery.
The bill is backed by the
North Carolina Restaurant and
Lodging Association as well as
the NC Center for Nonprofits.
They argue it provides thorough
regulation for an activity that
benefits both groups and already
goes on in many parts of the
state.
Christian and family-values
organizations oppose the bill,
saying it could lead to wider
gambling and the social ills that
come with it.
Whitney Christensen, a lobbyist for the restaurant and lodging group, said the bill helps
clarify confusion among hotel
owners about whether they can
host events that are already in
demand. She argued it tightly
regulates the practice by including limits on the frequency of
events and another provision
that says expenses not related to
food and beverages can’t exceed
50 percent of event proceeds.
“We think these safeguards
really make it a balanced bill,”
she said.
Christensen said the bill
is scheduled for a committee
debate Wednesday.
Rep. Tom Murry, R-Wake and
a main sponsor of the bill, noted
that the groups aren’t handing
out cash prizes.
“It’s limited in time, scope and
number, so I think it’s another
tool in the toolbox for these
legitimate nonprofits to help
raise money for good causes,”
he said.
The NC Center for Nonprofits
supports the bill, but its director
of public policy, David Heinen,
said the group’s 1,600 members
have been somewhat ambivalent.
“There wasn’t a significant outcry for us to push for this,” he
said. “There hasn’t been a significant outcry to oppose it, either.”
Thousands still without power in wake of storm
RALEIGH (AP) — Gov.
Pat McCrory is praising first
responders for their swift
response to powerful thunderstorms that swept across North
Carolina, killing three people
and leaving thousands without
power.
“My condolences go out to
the families and friends of the
three people that lost their lives
as a result of the storm,” he
said Friday. “I also want to
commend the first responders,
law enforcement and emergency management for their swift
response.”
Duke Energy has requested
additional utility crews from the
Midwest and South Carolina
to help restore service to its
138,000 customers still without
power Friday afternoon. They
were among more than 243,000
customers of all utilities without power.
Thursday’s storm toppled
trees and downed power lines.
A 20-year-old woman was
killed when she was hit by a
falling tree in downtown Chapel
Hill. Xuezhou “Julia” Nan, 20,
of Cary, was trying to get home
at about 5:15 p.m. when a large
oak tree fell across the front
yard of the Chi Omega sorority
house, in the 300 block of East
Franklin Street, and landed on
top of her on the sidewalk.
Emergency Medical Services
Director Jim Groves says another person pulled the 20-year-old
woman from beneath the tree
but she was unresponsive. She
was pronounced dead at UNC
Hospitals.
UNC-Chapel Hill Chancellor
Holden Thorp identified the
student as Xuezhou “Julia” Nan,
a senior from Cary.
Two Wilkes County residents
also died, including a volunteer
firefighter who was electrocuted
after responding to a small fire
caused by a tree that fell onto
power lines.

WASHINGTON
—
The U.S. economy is on
sounder footing than it
was a year ago but is still
being restrained by government spending cuts
and tax increases, the
International Monetary
Fund said Friday.
The IMF’s annual report
on the U.S. economy noted
that the underlying fundamentals are gradually
improving: Home prices
and construction are rising, household finances
have strengthened and
employers are steadily
adding jobs. The outlook
was much more optimistic
than IMF’s 2012 report.
“There are signs that
the U.S. recovery is gaining ground and becoming
more durable,” Christine
Lagarde, the IMF’s managing director, said in a
written statement.

Crews say they were better prepared
COLORADO SPRINGS,
Colo. (AP) — Crews battling the most destructive
wildfire in Colorado history say they were better
prepared to take on the
flames because of lessons
learned fighting last year’s
Waldo Canyon Fire, a
similarly devastating blaze
that devoured hundreds of
homes and killed two people only a few miles away.
When the thickly wooded rural region north of
Colorado Springs known as
the Black Forest began to
burn this week, authorities
swiftly evacuated tens of
thousands of people from a
swath of land larger than the
Denver metropolitan area.
They immediately began
hand-counting destroyed
houses to get information
out to nervous homeowners. And they rushed federal troops and aircraft into
action, cutting the red tape
that had grounded those
resources a year ago as
smoke clouds billowed over
Colorado.
Within an hour, El Paso
County had its emergency
operations center up and
running and summoned aircraft from nearby Peterson
Air Force base. Rep. Doug
Lamborn called the federal
center in Idaho that coordinates western firefighting
to speed up the process of
clearing the planes. Gov.
John Hickenlooper mobilized the Colorado National
Guard, and troops began
to help secure the rapidly
growing evacuation zone.
“We’ve done it all before
and so there was no question,” said Nicola Sapp, El
Paso County budget officer.
“Everybody jumped right
in.”
The cause of the blaze is
under investigation.
Before the fire got out of
Officers, commissioned warrant
officers, cadets and midshipmen
convicted of rape, sexual assault,
forcible sodomy or attempts to commit those offenses also would be
dismissed. Enlisted personnel and
noncommissioned warrant officers
convicted of similar crimes would be
dishonorably discharged.
The bill also would strip military
commanders of the power to overturn convictions in rape and sexual
assault cases.
Duckworth and several other
Democratic women made a last-ditch
effort to change the bill to allow a
victim to choose whether the Office
of Chief Prosecutor or the commander in the victim’s chain of command
decides whether the case would go
to trial. They argued that the bill did
not go far enough.
Their effort failed, 225-194, but in
an emotional moment on the House
floor, a wheelchair-bound Duckworth
received kisses, hugs and handshakes
after her plea.
Despite last-minute lobbying by
Obama counterterrorism adviser
Lisa Monaco, the House soundly
rejected Obama’s repeated pleas
to shutter Guantanamo. In recent
weeks, the president implored
Congress to close the facility, citing
its prohibitive costs and its role as a
recruiting tool for extremists.

An insult
to teachers
T
alk about adding insult to
injury.
Legislation that went
before the House Education
Committee recently would have raised
teacher-license fees by between $15 and
$40 a year, depending on the license
sought.
The committee rejected the bill.
The bill would not have applied to
most current teachers who apply for
license renewals through their school
districts. It would have applied only to
those applicants who are new teachers,
changing jobs or are out of teaching but
are maintaining their licenses nonetheless.
The N.C. Association of Educators had
pushed the bill, hoping that the revenue
raised would allow for development of
an online license management system
to take electronic applications, the N.C.
Insider newsletter reported.
The higher fee, even if it would
not have applied to most teachers,
rubbed legislators the wrong way. Both
Republicans and Democrats complained
that teacher morale is very low in light
of the long stretch during which teachers have gone without a pay raise, just
one small raise in the last five years.
And North Carolina teachers are now
among the lowest paid in the nation.
We agree with the committee. If the
state can’t afford to give teachers raises
and maintain their salaries in the face
of inflation, then the state should not
be charging higher fees for work-related
services. This proposal smacks of the
awful decision made by some state agencies and universities several years ago to
raise employees’ parking fees during the
recession.
The NCAE and others make a good
argument for the need to move licensing onto the Internet. The Department
of Public Instruction processes 50,000
of these applications every year, mostly
between May and September.
But the need for a better system does
not create a logical basis for the argument that teachers must pay for it. If the
system is truly needed, then the legislature should find the money. It would
probably improve DPI efficiency.
While this bill may be inactive now,
the idea behind it could end up in law a
number of other ways. That should not
happen.

Turkish PM urges protesters to leave Gezi Park
ANKARA, Turkey (AP) —
Turkey’s prime minister on
Friday urged a small delegation
of protesters to persuade hundreds of others occupying an
Istanbul park to withdraw.
Turkish activists leading a
sit-in were considering a promise by Recep Tayyip Erdogan to
let the courts and a potential
referendum decide the fate of
the much-despised Gezi Park
redevelopment project — a
plan that has sparked Turkey’s
biggest protests in decades.
The pledge was made during
last-ditch negotiations after
Erdogan had issued what he
called a “final warning” to protesters.
The two-week standoff has
damaged Erdogan’s international reputation and led to
repeated interventions by riot
police. After initially
inflaming tensions by
dubbing the protesters
“terrorists,” the prime
minister has moderated
his stance in closed-door
talks in the last few days.
But Erdogan told
party members Friday
that the protesters in the Erdogan
park had “stayed long
enough.”
“’Go and speak to them ...
Don’t let us be forced into
reverting to different measures,’” Erdogan said he had
told the protesters’ representatives.
Earlier in the day, Erdogan’s
ruling party announced that
the government would
suspend its plan to cut
down trees in Gezi Park
and install a replica
Ottoman barracks until
the courts could rule on
its legality. And even if
the courts sided with the
government, a city referendum would be held
to determine the plan’s
fate, officials said.
It remained far from clear,
however, whether the overtures
would work.
Erdogan has pledged to end
the two-week protest but has
also urged his supporters to
rally in Ankara and Istanbul
this weekend. Those demonstrations could raise tension
between his conservative,
Islamic base and the people
occupying the park who are
mostly — but not all — liberaland secular-minded.
As night fell Friday, a festive mood pervaded the park,
and the crowd of thousands
swelled. Many sang songs or
snapped photos of makeshift
barricades erected by protesters.

BEIRUT
(AP)
—
Hezbollah’s leader vowed
Friday that his militants
would keep fighting in
Syria “wherever needed”
after the U.S. agreed to
arm the rebels in the civil
war, setting up a proxy
fight between Iran and
the West that threatens to
engulf more of the Middle
East.
President
Barack
Obama has deepened
U.S. involvement in the
conflict,
authorizing
lethal aid to the rebels
for the first time after
Washington said it had
conclusive evidence the
Syrian regime had used
chemical weapons. Syria
accused Obama of lying
about the evidence, saying he was resorting to
fabrications to justify his
decision to arm the rebels.
The opposition forces,
which have suffered key
battlefield losses in recent
weeks and were facing
heavy fighting Friday
in Syria’s largest city of
Aleppo, appealed for the
weapons to be sent to
them as soon as possible
to swing the momentum
to their side.
The 2-year-old conflict, which the U.N. estimates has killed more
than 90,000 people and
displaced millions, is
increasingly being fought
along sectarian lines, pitting Sunni against Shiite
Muslims, and is threatening the stability of Syria’s
neighbors.
Sheikh
Hassan
Nasrallah, chief of the
Shiite Hezbollah group
in Lebanon, appeared
unwavering in his support
for the regime of Syrian
President Bashar Assad.
He signaled for the first
time the Iranian-backed
militant group will stay
involved in the civil war
after helping Assad’s army
recapture the key town of
Qusair in central Homs
province from rebels.

Dishing up trash: New look for sustainable seafood
Michele Kayal
Associated Press
Most people have only ever
seen a scorpion fish in an
aquarium. Unless they dine at
Carolina Crossroads Restaurant
in Chapel Hill, N.C., where
they’ll find the spiny, venomous
creature on the menu.
It’s called trash fish dining,
and it’s catching on with chefs
around the country searching
for fresh ways to fill their menus
with sustainable — and delicious — seafood.
“The fishermen would be like,
‘This is all trash, junk,’ but I
said, ‘I’ll pay fair price for it
if you’ll bring it back to the
dock,’” says James Clark, the
restaurant’s executive chef. “Eat
some butter-poached scorpion
fish and you’ll swear it’s lobster.”
Chefs such as Clark go beyond
the usual recommendation to
eat small, lower-food-chain
fish like sardines, and instead
delve full force into little-known
local catches that many anglers
regard as nuisance or “trash”
fish. Clark’s menu also offers
triggerfish, drum, white grunt
and other obscure species.
Meanwhile, New Haven,
Conn., sushi restaurant Miya’s
features invasive species such
as shore crabs and moon snails.
At San Francisco’s Incanto, chef
Chris Cosentino serves sea slug,
tuna spines and roasted fish
heads. And at Arrows restaurant in Ogunquit, Maine, awardwinning chefs Mark Gaier and
Clark Frasier built a “Trash Fish
Dinner” around whiting, mackerel and other less desirable
species.
Besides introducing the public to lesser-known fish, these
top chefs also are promoting
a broader concept of how to
eat sustainably from the ocean,
a concept that conservation
experts say could help secure
the world’s seafood supply. Just
three fish — shrimp, canned
tuna and salmon — account
for more than half of all U.S.
seafood consumption, according to the trade association the
National Fisheries Institute.
“We have created a system
based on demand, rather than
on what the oceans supply,”
says Barton Seaver, a former
chef who is now director of
Harvard University’s Healthy
and Sustainable Food Program.
“We’re so busy trying to make
salmon sustainable that we forget to ask what’s available.”
Better management of the
world’s fisheries also is part of
the equation. Two-thirds of the
world’s wild fish come from the
coastal waters of just nine countries and the European Union,
says Andy Sharpless, author of
“The Perfect Protein” and head
of the ocean conservation organization Oceana.
These countries have the legal
authority to manage the fisheries off their shores without the
hassle of international agreements that govern the high seas
and the fish that swim in them
— the tuna and other large,
popular species. The United
States, Chile and the European
Union already have viable plans
to protect nurseries and manage catch limits, Sharpless says.
Getting the remaining seven
countries on board, he says,
would double the world’s available seafood by 2050.
“The oceans can play a very
big part in making sure people
have healthy and good food to
eat between now and 2050,”
Sharpless says. “The goal of
restoring those oceans to abundance is more achievable than
people have generally understood.”

“I am no stranger to

while in the first grade
due to the inability to
read,” she said. “Through
the manipulation of index

“We fought hard to
get this in the budget,”
Graham said. “The center
is showing a good revenue stream and having
success. We’re getting a
good return for our buck.
“We are talking jobs
and economic opportunities here,” Graham said.
“This is important to
our citizens and our tax
base.”
Graham said that a
strong point of the proposed House budget is
that it is restoring funding for the N.C. Rural
Center. Funding for the
center had been cut in
both the governor’s proposed budget and the
budget proposed by the
Senate.

“The Rural Center does
a lot to help rural North
Carolina with infrastructure and other projects
that promote economic
development,” Graham
said. “There are a lot of
representatives in the
House from rural counties and they know how
important the center is to
rural areas.”
The proposed House
budget through mid2015 received final
approval
Thursday.
House Republicans contend the budget advances
reform and responsibility. Democrats say that it
recklessly harms people.
The overall House
budget spends almost
exactly the same amount
as the Senate proposal,
$20.6 billion. The Senate
proposal passed late last
month.
The two chambers differ in many ways on how
to spend state funds.
Negotiations
should
begin next week, with the
goal of reaching a compromise by the end of the
month that can be sent to
McCrory. The governor
will also participate in
final budget negotiations.

NBA
Kobe eyes 2 more seasons
Associated Press
LOS ANGELES — Kobe Bryant
set off a mild panic among Los
Angeles Lakers fans Friday afternoon when he selected “The Last
Chapter” as the slogan that best
represents his comeback from a
ruptured Achilles tendon.
“The Last Chapter” sounds a lot
like “The Last Stand,” the quote
Phil Jackson gave when he decided
to return for his final season with
the Lakers in 2010-11 and seemed
to imply Bryant was thinking of
retiring after next season.
Far from it.
Bryant wants to be “back next
season with a vengeance,” a source
told the AP. And he wants “two
more cracks at it to win seven NBA
titles at least.”
In other words, it’s highly unlikely next season will be his last.
Bryant and Derek Fisher lead all
active players with five NBA titles,

although the Spurs’ Tim Duncan
could tie them if San Antonio beats
the Miami Heat in this year’s Finals.
Bryant has always publicly maintained that he will play only while
he’s able to perform at an elite level.
Next season is his final one under
contract with the Lakers. A source
with knowledge of the Lakers’
thinking told ESPNLosAngeles.com
that the team was planning to open
extension talks with Bryant as soon
as it was allowed to under NBA
rules, which ironically came right
after he ruptured his Achilles in a
game against Golden State on April
12.
Both sides would love to see
Bryant retire as a Laker, sources
said. But the Achilles injury complicated the issue, especially the
timing of talks about an extension.
It would be difficult for the Lakers
to bring Bryant back at his current salary of $30 million a year
with the salary-cap restrictions in
the new collective bargaining agreement. But the team is determined
to treat Bryant well and with the
respect befitting his contributions
to the franchise during his career,
the source said.
Bryant is still in the early stages
of recovery from his injury, but
he is determined to return by the
start of next season and be just as
good as he was this season, when
he averaged 27.3 points on 46.3
percent shooting, 6.0 assists and 5.6
rebounds a game, all higher than his
career averages, at the age of 34.
At 34, Kobe
Bryant is coming off one of
his best statistical seasons
as a pro and,
despite rupturing his Achilles
during the final
month, expects
to be back by
the start of
training camp.

Billy Horschel became the first U.S. Open golfer since 1992 to hit all 18 greens during Friday’s second round. He’s tied atop the leaderboard with Phil
Mickelson at 1-under.

Associated Press
ARDMORE, Pa. — It didn’t take long
to figure out who was winning the U.S.
Open on Friday: Merion.
The historic course in suburban
Philadelphia rose up and put down any
thought it could be manhandled, with
perhaps some help from the United States
Golf Association.
Despite a week’s worth of rain and soft
conditions that many figured would make
the East Course vulnerable, scoring was
in line with the typically high numbers
often seen at the year’s second major
championship.
Only two players got to the clubhouse
Friday under par through 36 holes: Firstround leader Phil Mickelson and Billy
Horschel, who hit all 18 greens in regulation in a 3-under 67 that was the round of
the tournament. They are at 1-under 139.
Steve Stricker, Luke Donald and Justin
Rose also got to the clubhouse before
darkness halted the second round, finishing a stroke back.
Some 68 players must complete the sec-

ond round on Saturday morning before a
36-hole cut, expected to come at 8 over,
is made. Play will begin at 7:15 a.m. ET.
Mickelson was on the 18th hole when
the horn sounded to signal that play was
suspended. The rules allow a player to
complete the hole, and Mickelson had
rifled a second shot from 240 yards onto
the left side of the green. He rolled in the
20-footer for his only birdie of the day,
salvaging a 72 after a frustrating day on
the greens.
“It felt great. I wasn’t expecting birdie
there,” Mickelson said. “It’s a very difficult hole. I got shut out today. I played
really well. Even though I shot 2 over, it
was the birdie opportunities that I didn’t
capitalize on. Had I made one on 2 or
that birdie on 8 or 9 or 11, I would have
changed kind of the momentum of the
round. I played well today even though I
didn’t feel the score was what I thought
it should be.”
He wasn’t alone.
Merion was a beast Friday, averaging
more than 74.6 strokes and inflicting its
share of pain. Of the rounds completed,
only three were under par and 10 were
in the 80s.
Tiger Woods, dealing with a problematic left elbow, was one of just five players in
the morning wave to shoot par or better

BROOKLYN, Mich. — Brad Keselowski
was asked to pick one word to describe a
lap at Michigan International Speedway.
“Fast,” the defending Sprint Cup champion said. “This is, to me, the fastest track
we have — and it might be in speed, but it
definitely is in feel.”
MIS is in its second year with a newly
paved surface, and drivers are again making 200
mph laps look almost
routine. Carl Edwards
topped Sprint Cup qualifying Friday with a lap of
202.452 mph.
That run came a year
after Marcos Ambrose
won the pole at MIS at Carl Edwards
203.241 mph — the first
time since 1987 the 200 mph mark was
broken during qualifying for NASCAR’s
top series.
“The new track is super fun to race
on,” Edwards said. “The pavement seems
like it has aged more in a year than a lot
of new track surfaces have, and hopefully
we can keep developing a Goodyear tire
and keep making it softer and softer to
where it becomes the old Michigan here
in a year or two. I think that is going to
be awesome.”
Edwards topped qualifying for the first
time this season. He had the pole in May
at Talladega as well, but that was because
qualifying was rained out and the field
was set by practice speeds. He’s second
in the Sprint Cup standings.
Kurt Busch was second in qualifying, followed by Kasey Kahne. Points
leader Jimmie Johnson was 17th, one
spot behind Keselowski.
Edwards started second last weekend
at Pocono, but finished 18th. Now, his
No. 99 Ford looks capable of a big weekend.
“The engine is a big part of it, and
today the engine group came through
huge,” Edwards said. “You can’t hide a
bad engine out there on that racetrack.
That is a big racetrack where big power
means something, and same thing with
the aero program. We have to keep moving forward but that is cool. There is not
a faster car in the place than our car today
and that is a big deal.”
Fedora, UNC hope to turn corner
Take another leap forward in mindset for Tar Heel football players
Aaron Beard

CHAPEL HILL — North
Carolina coach Larry Fedora
saw his first team set school
records for scoring and total
offense, win eight games and do
enough to win a division title
they can’t officially claim due to
NCAA sanctions.
As he prepares for his second
season, Fedora plans to push his
players for more.
“That’s not the bar for us,”
Fedora said in an interview
with The Associated Press. “We
don’t feel like we’ve maxed out
by any means. We feel like we’ve
just got a start.”
To Fedora, the Tar Heels (8-4, thing happens, you know you’re

points and 35.1-point average of
the 1993 team.
UNC also finished with 5,817
yards of total offense, good for
an average of 484.4 yards per
game. That total was nearly
600 yards more than the school
record set by the 1993 team in
one fewer game played.
The Tar Heels faced a oneyear postseason ban from the
NCAA for improper benefits and
academic misconduct dating
back to 2008. That denied them
a fifth straight bowl appearance
in Fedora’s first year as well as
what would’ve been an appearance in the ACC championship
game against Florida State.
The Tar Heels tied Georgia
Tech and Miami atop the
Coastal Division, but would’ve
owned the three-way tiebreaker
had it not been for the NCAA
penalty. Still, Fedora set the
goal of winning what amounted
to an unofficial division title,
then presented his team with
rings for reaching that goal.
“I wanted to reward those
seniors and that class for what
they accomplished,” he said.
“I knew that a lot of people
wouldn’t agree with it, but I
wasn’t concerned with everybody else. I was more concerned with that team and those
seniors.”

in Tuesday’s fight, it might

the longest handled out by
the league for on-field conduct since Chicago Cubs
catcher Michael Barrett was

Kennedy is appealing the

trying to set an example,” he
said before Arizona’s game
in San Diego on Friday
night.
four straight.
“U.S. Opens get harder as
the week goes on,” Donald
said. “The pins today were a
lot more tucked. They were
tougher to get to. A few were
on little hills or slopes. It’s
very difficult to make those
putts when the ball is breaking
so much.”
Horschel, 26, won his first
PGA Tour event earlier this
year at the Zurich Classic, culminating a stretch of four top10 finishes. He is playing in
just his second U.S. Open.
“I was not in the zone, trust
me,” Horschel said. “The golf
course, even though it’s soft,
is still a tough golf course. I
know what in the zone is for
me. I don’t get nervous. I just
see the shot and go. And I saw
the shot and went with it, but
I was still nervous with a lot of
them. Your misses here can be
bad if you miss in the wrong
spots.
Not from behind, and certainly
not with an elbow inflammation that seems to bother him
most on his worst shots.
Woods says otherwise, and
after a marathon stretch of play
Friday that helped him creep
into contention at Merion Golf
Club it’s still possible he could
be the one having the last say.
Trying to break a winless
streak in major championships
that now spans five full years,
Woods played 25-plus holes
in a respectable 1-over-par to
move up the leaderboard on a
day when many other players
were going the other way.
It wasn’t good enough to get
under par, or even crack the
top 10. But he was just four
shots back and in prime position to make a move on the
weekend on an Open course
that is playing much tougher
than a lot of people expected.
Asked if he liked his chances, Woods didn’t hesitate to
answer, “Yes.”
Woods had some issues on
a day that began for him in
the early morning and didn’t
finish until mid-afternoon. He
missed some putts he might
ordinarily expect to make,
barely moved a chip a few
inches forward, and guessed
wrong on a couple of shots.
But that’s U.S. Open golf,
and the best player in the
world stood at 3-over 143 after
two rounds — the same as
playing partner and budding
buddy Rory McIlroy.
“I just made a couple of
mistakes out there today, but
I really played well,” Woods
said. “Maybe I could have gotten one or two more out of it,
but it was a pretty good day.”
The night before, Woods
underwent some treatment on
his left elbow, which he shook
several times after hitting bad
shots in the first 11 holes of a
rain-delayed round. He said he
hurt the elbow at the Players
Championship and that it was
painful at times, though on his
good shots it didn’t seem to
bother him at all.
“It is what it is,” Woods
said.
McIlroy said he didn’t even
notice Woods was having difficulty with the elbow.
“I haven’t seen anything
wrong with him,” McIlroy said
after finishing with his own
73-70.

par or better on the 6,996yard course that is hosting the
U.S. Open for the fifth time.
His even-par 70, which had
its share of miscues, nonetheless kept him in the tournament. He is tied for 17th, four
strokes back.
“It’s hard with the wind and
the pin locations,” said Woods,
who never has been over par
through 36 holes of a PGA
Tour tournament and gone on
to win. “They’re really tough.
We knew they were going to
be in [tough] areas, but we
didn’t think they were going to
be as severe as they are.”
Among the casualties at
Merion were a slew of major
champions.
Graeme McDowell, a pretournament favorite, was 13
over through two rounds.
David Toms was 12 over. Jose
Maria Olazabal shot 81 on
Friday. Jim Furyk finished at
16 over. Angel Cabrera, who
lost in a playoff to Adam Scott
at the Masters, and Darren
Clarke were 15 over.
Donald, who took the lead
outright at one point at 4

bogeys in six holes, including

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday,
June 15, 2013:
This year you work on your
patience. You will experience a lot of
frustration as you discover the difficult
nature of this virtue. Sometimes your
frustration evolves to anger. Be careful. You have a lot of self-discipline —
use it appropriately. If you are single,
expect many ups and downs in a new
relationship. The person who indulges
you needs a second look. If you are
attached, be more patient with your
sweetie. There is no need to have
futile disagreements. VIRGO gets the
job done, even if it is too slow for your
taste.
The Stars Show the Kind of Day
You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive;
3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
HHH Others might wonder what is
going on, as you seem to fuss about
nearly everything. Go out and handle
what you must, and you will feel a
great sense of relief. Others will smile
to have the sunnier side of your personality appear. Tonight: Invite others
to your place for a party.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
HHHH You generally feel uptight
about spending; however, you likely
will accept a costly invitation. Honor
your needs first, because that is the
only way something will work. Make
yourself at ease, and everyone will
become far more jubilant. Tonight:
Kick up your heels.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
HHH Whether you’re snoozing
or getting into a project, you can be
found at home. It might be a good
idea to attend a gathering later in the
day. You also could ask a friend to
help you with a project. You don’t do
well without company for any length of
time. Tonight: Make it easy.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
HHHH Keep conversations moving. Your naturally nurturing ways
draw others out. Do not feel like you
have to fix a situation or come up with
a solution. Others simply like to be
with you; they thoroughly enjoy your
feedback and upbeat personality.
Tonight: Catch up on others’ news.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
HHH Do not stress yourself out.
Relax with friends, and worry less
about the potential problems in your
life. Stay present, and before you
know it, you will be enjoying a quirky
friend. This person almost always
chooses to head in the opposite direction of the crowd. Tonight: Your treat.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Horoscope
HHHH Refuse to get involved in a
power struggle or an angry exchange.
You could find a workable solution,
but you might decide that it just isn’t
worth getting in the middle of an
uncomfortable situation. Tonight: As
you like. Someone is only too happy
to please you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
HHH You might want some free
time to be by yourself right now. To
be fair, you have pushed very hard
in the past few weeks. A loved one
also would appreciate time alone with
you. Know that you probably will not
be good company right now. Tonight:
Indulge yourself.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
HHHH Keep reaching out to
someone you care a lot about. Avoid
getting involved in an argument with
others, as there appears to be a tiff
going on among several close friends
or loved ones. Flex with the moment,
and life will be more exciting as a
result. Tonight: Where your friends
are.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
HHH Tension builds as you start
thinking about an older relative or your
many responsibilities. Handle what
you must; otherwise, you won’t be
able to relax. You might discover that
you have to deal with an unexpected
cost. Use your skills to talk the price
down. Tonight: Out late.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
HHHH Your ability to get past a
problem usually is strong, but right
now you could find yourself having
words with a neighbor or relative.
Is there another way? Revise your
thinking, and try to take a different
approach. You just might see a new
path. Tonight: Join friends for dinner.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
HHHH Listen to feedback, and
know full well what will be necessary
to make a situation work. You are
exuberant and sure of yourself. Still,
make it a point to cater to others a bit
more. At times, you might take on a
defiant attitude. Tonight: Love the one
you are with.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
HHHH Others clearly need and
want to have control right now. You
have nothing to lose, so resist getting
tense or looking for answers. Just
go along for the ride. You might gain
more understanding of the person you
are with if you do. Tonight: People
surround you. Enjoy!
