Teen, veteran clash at Open

OUT OF BOUNDS

U.S. Golf Association officials confirmed Friday that Danielle Ammaccapane, a playing partner of Michelle Wie, berated the teen in the scoring tent after Thursday's opening round of the U.S. Women's Open. Wie, 13, wouldn't disclose what was said. Wie's father, who caddies for her, also alleged Ammaccapane bumped the youngster on the 14th green during the round and said he was accosted by Ammaccapane's caddie during the round. Friction apparently began rising when Ammaccapane said Wie walked in her line as she prepared to putt. Wie said she was trying to go behind her to get to her own putt. B.J. Wie said Ammaccapane bumped or brushed his daughter on the green. "They play golf for a living," he said. "We don't know the tiny things." Ammaccapane declined comment, and no incidents were reported Friday.

Athens dogs saved

There were killings. Then rowdy street demonstrations, an international campaign and heated public debate over the fate of Athens' thousands of stray dogs. But Parliament is expected to pass legislation allowing dogs to be caught, vaccinated, neutered and registered before roaming the streets with Olympic visitors. In January, more than 60 dogs and cats were poisoned to death. Animal rights activists suspected an attempt to present Athens as a clean city for European officials and feared a similar fate was in store for the Olympics. Cats won't be caught because of high costs.
