When Howard Robertson took aim on No. 9 at the University of Southern Mississippi golf course, he knocked a big hole in the Hattiesburg Sertoma Club budget. "It happened during our June 11-12 benefit golf tournament," said club member Joel Johnson. "This is our biggest money-raiser annually, and part of the package to attract golfers was we would give an $18,000 car to anyone who made a hole in one."

In a report published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences , a team of environmental and biological scientists examined 27 melting permafrost sites in Alaska and found that bacteria converted dissolved organic carbon materials into the greenhouse gas CO2 40% faster when exposed to ultraviolet light.

Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe, while visiting Santa Monica, made this discovery: "Back home in Boston, Mo Vaughn dominates the news. Mo this. Mo that. Say it ain't so, Mo. Mo Vaughn--moving on.

After the discovery last week of a cross-border tunnel between Mexicali and Calexico in the Imperial Valley, officials are more convinced than ever that the drug- and people-smuggling business has gone underground, literally. The tunnel was the 10th discovered in California and Arizona since federal officials tightened security at the border after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The 10 tunnels in two years compare to just 15 tunnels discovered in the previous 12 years.

All you need to know about this year's watershed Nissan Open is that Chad Campbell took the second-round lead at nine-under 133 on Friday and Adam Scott grabbed a share of the second-round lead ... on Sunday. In what may go down as the drippiest PGA event since Noah's BC Open, players squeezed out two rounds of golf in four days and will return today to see if anything more can be salvaged. For now, Campbell and Scott share the 36 (sink)-hole lead at nine-under 133.

We are hearing a lot of irresponsible talk about our military bases in the Philippines being "essential" or "indispensable." We may well find ourselves forced out of those "indispensable" bases. But even if we are permitted to stay, there are better alternatives. The bases can be judged essential only in short-term military considerations. They also have political liabilities. They will be leverage in the hands of either the wily President Ferdinand E.

"Choose me," read the sign on each of three gleaming new cars at the Glendora Country Club golf course during April's Glendora Chamber of Commerce-sponsored amateur tournament. All anyone had to do to win the Ford, Dodge or Chevrolet was sink a hole-in-one on the 163-yard, par-three seventh hole. James (J. C.) Higgins, a 41-year-old Covina bartender, did. He picked the 1986 Camaro Z-28 IROC. He said the Lord told him, "This is your car, Jim."
