    Royal Portrush had all of Saturday morning to recover from the reality that Rory McIlroy is no longer part of this British Open. In a second round so packed with emotion that it felt like Sunday, McIlroy nearly recovered from his opening 79 by coming up one birdie short of making it to the weekend. McIlroy, one of three players from Northern Ireland celebrating the return of the Open after a 68-year absence, says he has never felt such support. And now for the rest of the show. Shane Lowry of Ireland and J.B. Holmes were tied for the lead at 8-under 134, one shot ahead of Lee Westwood and Tommy Fleetwood. Among those within three shots of the lead were Justin Rose, Brooks Koepka and Jordan Spieth. ___ More AP golf: https://apnews.com/tag/apf-Golf
  • Germany is marking the 75th anniversary of the most famous plot to kill Adolf Hitler, paying tribute to the conspirators who were executed for trying to assassinate the Nazi dictator. Chancellor Angela Merkel is on Saturday attending the annual swearing-in ceremony for some 400 troops before addressing a memorial event being held in the courtyard of the building where plot leader Col. Claus von Stauffenberg was executed. Von Stauffenberg tried to kill Hitler with a briefcase bomb on July 20, 1944, but a table blocked the full force of the blast and Hitler survived. Von Stauffenberg and his fellow plotters were executed within hours. Painted as traitors by the Nazis, they are now seen as heroes.
  • The Latest on developments related to tensions between the U.S. and Iran (all times local): 2:15 p.m. The Indian and Philippine governments say they're working to get Iran to release nationals from the two countries who were on board a British-flagged oil tanker seized by Iran in the Persian Gulf. India's foreign ministry spokesman, Raveesh Kumar, said Saturday its diplomats were 'in touch with the Government of Iran to secure the early release and repatriation' of the 18 Indian crew members on the Stena Impero. Manila's Department of Foreign Affairs also says its ambassador to Tehran is in contact with Iranian authorities to ensure the one Filipino crew member's safety and immediate release. Philippine Foreign Affairs Undersecretary Sarah Lou Arriola says there have been no reports of injuries among the crew. Iran's state-run IRNA news agency has said the other crew members consisted of three Russians and a Latvian. ___ 12:55 p.m. The chairman of Britain's House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee says military action to free the oil tanker seized by Iran would not be a good choice. Tom Tugendhat said Saturday it would be 'extremely unwise' to seek a military solution to the escalating crisis, especially because the vessel has apparently been taken to a well-protected port. 'If it has been taken to Bandar Abbas then that's an important Iranian military port and I think any military options will therefore be extremely unwise,' he told BBC. He also said it would not be useful to expel Iran's ambassador to the United Kingdom because it is important to keep talking. Other senior British figures have said military options should not be used. ___ 11:05 a.m. Iran's state-run IRNA news agency is reporting that the country's seizure of British-flagged oil tanker a day earlier was due to a collision with an Iranian fishing boat. Saturday's report says the British tanker caused damage to the fishing boat, then didn't respond to calls from the smaller craft. The fishing boat informed Iran's Ports and Maritime Organization, which notified the Revolutionary Guard. The report says Revolutionary Guard vessels directed the Stena Impero to the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas for an investigation Friday. Iran's attempt to offer a 'technical' explanation for seizing the tanker could signal a possible de-escalation of tensions in the strategic Strait of Hormuz, which has become a flashpoint between Tehran and the West. Another British ship was briefly detained by Iran on Friday before being allowed to go.
  • Veteran Hong Kong actor Simon Yam was stabbed in the stomach Saturday while attending an event in southern China, with police saying his injuries were not life-threatening. The motive was unclear. A suspect was detained following the attack in the Zhongshan Huoju Development Zone in Guangdong province, police said. The 64-year-old actor underwent a minor operation at a hospital in Zhongshan city, his manager Lester Mo said. 'He was stabbed in the tummy area and also got a cut on his right hand,' Mo said. He was still being treated for injuries to the four fingers of his right hand. Yam, who is also known by his Chinese name Yam Tat-wah, has appeared in more than 125 movies and 40 television series. He played the villain Chen Lo in the 2003 Hollywood film 'Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life.
  • The death toll in monsoon flooding in South Asia has risen to 152 as millions of people and animals continue to face the brunt in three countries, officials said Saturday. At least 90 people have died in Nepal and 50 in northeastern India's Assam state over the past week. A dozen have been killed in Bangladesh. Shiv Kumar, a government official in Assam, said 10 rare one-horned rhinos have died in Kaziranga National Park since the Brahmaputra River burst its banks, flooding the reserve. Some 4.8 million people spread over 3,700 villages across the state are still affected by the floods, though the frequency of rains has decreased in the past 24 hours, the Assam Disaster Response Authority said. More than 2.5 million have also been hit by flooding in India's Bihar state. Amid the flooding, 20-year-old Imrana Khatoon delivered her first baby on a boat in floodwaters early Friday while on her way to a hospital in Assam's flooded Gagalmari village, locals said. The woman and the newborn were brought back to their home without getting to the hospital. Community health worker Parag Jyoti Das, who visited the family, said there were no post-delivery health complications. However, the mother and the child were moved to a hospital on a boat to the nearby town of Jhargaon because of unhygienic conditions due to floodwaters, Das said. The health center in Khatoon's village was flooded and closed. 'I would have felt happier if the baby's father was here,' said Khatoon, whose husband works in a hotel in the southern state of Kerala. More than 147,000 people have taken shelter in 755 government-run camps across Assam, officials said. Authorities warned they would take action against suppliers who were reported to be distributing poor quality rice and other essentials to marooned people and inmates of temporary shelters at some places. 'We have ordered the arrest of those unscrupulous elements supplying substandard materials and playing with the lives of the affected people,' said Himanta Biswa Sarma, Assam's finance minister. In Nepal, the Home Ministry said about 36,728 families were affected by the monsoon rains. The flooding and mudslides forced some 13,000 families to flee their homes. In at least two of Nepal's districts, helicopters were used to transport emergency food supplies, while other transport means were being used to move tents and other supplies to the victims. South Asia's monsoon rains, which hit the region from June to September, are crucial for the rain-fed crops planted during the season. ___ Associated Press writer Binaj Gurubacharya in Kathmandu, Nepal, contributed to this report.
  • Officials in Hawaii said Friday that they will not call up additional National Guard troops or use force on peaceful telescope protesters blocking access to the state's highest peak. Gov. David Ige said that his priority is to keep everyone in the community safe, including the activists at the base of Mauna Kea. The 80 guard members on the Big Island since the start of the protests will remain, state officials said. 'We will not be utilizing tear gas, as some of the rumors have been (saying),' Ige said. 'We are looking for the best way forward without hurting anyone.' The governor said last week that National Guard units would be used to transport personnel and equipment as well as to enforce road closures. Ige said Friday no more troops would be called in to the Big Island, but he stopped short of removing an emergency proclamation that he enacted Wednesday. The emergency order broadened the state's authority to remove protesters from the mountain, including the use of National Guard for security. Big Island Mayor Harry Kim, who met with Ige Friday morning as about 800 to 1,200 activists gathered on the mountain, said he hopes the protesters and state officials will take some time to discuss a better way forward. 'We all need to step back a little bit,' Kim said. 'This is still our home, this is still our family. On both sides.' The move comes after some notable politicians weighed in on the issue Friday. U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii followed fellow Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in supporting protesters. She said in a statement that Gov. Ige should withdraw the emergency declaration and sit down with protesters to find a peaceful way forward. 'Trust must be earned — it is wrong that state leaders have approved the development of a new telescope on a new site on Mauna Kea, without first ensuring the timely removal of decommissioned facilities along with full restoration of those sites,' Gabbard said. 'This failure and a history of broken promises has resulted in the standoff that we are seeing today.' Earlier in the day, Sanders said in a tweet that has since been deleted: 'We must guarantee native people's right to self-determination and their right to protest. I stand with Native Hawaiians who are peacefully demonstrating to protect their sacred mountain of Mauna Kea.' Sanders' campaign didn't immediately respond to an email asking why the tweet was deleted. Protest leader Kaho'okahi Kanuha said protesters have been bracing for law enforcement to show up in force ever since Gov. David Ige signed the emergency proclamation. That was the day officers arrested 34 protesters. Hawaii Lt. Gov. Josh Green said he plans to meet with people about the issue. 'I believe that this struggle is more about the heart of Hawaii and our sense of self and dignity, especially for the Hawaiian people, than it is about a telescope. It is about cultural recognition and people's self worth,' he said in a Facebook post. It's the fifth day of protests at Mauna Kea in response to closing the road to the summit so that construction equipment for the Thirty Meter Telescope can be taken up. No trucks have gone up. The Thirty Meter Telescope obtained permits from the state to build after a decade-long review process. Last year the state Supreme Court ruled the permits were obtained legally, allowing construction to move ahead. There have been protests in other parts of Hawaii, including on Maui and at the state Capitol in Honolulu. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported protesters slowed traffic on Honolulu's main highway, the H-1, for a second straight day on Thursday. A caravan of vehicles and mopeds forced other cars to slow to a crawl for several minutes until police cars entered the freeway in front of the procession.
  • Iran and Britain appeared to signal Saturday that they are not seeking confrontation, a day after Iran seized a British-flagged tanker in the strategic Strait of Hormuz, a flashpoint in rising tensions between Tehran and the West. Iran's state news agency said it had seized the Stena Impero for an investigation after it had collided with an Iranian fishing boat — an explanation that avoided portraying the incident as a tit-for-tat move in the current tense climate. In London, Tom Tugendhat, the chairman of Britain's House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee, said military action to free the tanker would be 'extremely unwise,' especially because the vessel was apparently taken to a well-protected port. Tensions between Iran and the West had been rising since May, when the U.S. announced it was dispatching an aircraft carrier and additional troops to the Middle East, citing unspecified threats posed by Iran. The ongoing showdown has caused jitters around the globe, with each maneuver bringing fear that any misunderstanding or misstep by either side could lead to war. The seizing of the tanker late Friday was seen as a significant escalation. British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt initially said two ships were seized in the Strait of Hormuz, the second sailing under a Liberian flag. The owner of the Liberian-flagged tanker later said the ship was briefly boarded by armed guards before being allowed to go. On Saturday, Iran's state-run news agency IRNA said the British tanker had collided with an Iranian fishing boat, causing damage, and didn't respond to calls from the smaller craft. The fishing boat informed Iran's Ports and Maritime Organization, which notified the powerful Revolutionary Guard. IRNA reported that the Revolutionary Guard vessels directed the Stena Impero to an Iranian port for an investigation Friday, and that the crew remained on board the ship as per safety regulations. Stena Bulk, the owner of the tanker, said the vessel had 23 crew members of Indian, Russian, Latvian and Filipino nationalities and there were no reports any of them were injured. Britain has featured prominently in the recent tensions with Iran. There was a brief standoff between the British navy and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard vessels recently. The British navy said it warned three Guard vessels away after they tried to impede the passage of a commercial British tanker that the navy was escorting. Britain's Royal Marines assisted in the seizure of an Iranian oil supertanker on July 4 by Gibraltar, a British overseas territory off the southern coast of Spain. Britain has said it would release the vessel if Iran could prove it was not breaching European Union sanctions on oil shipments to Syria. However, on Friday, a court in Gibraltar extended by 30 days the detention of the Panama-flagged Grace. The current tensions have been escalating since Trump withdrew the U.S. last year from Iran's 2015 nuclear deal with world powers and imposed sweeping economic sanctions on Iran, including its oil exports. The sanctions have hit the Iranian economy hard. Iran's government has desperately tried to get out of the chokehold, urging the other partners in the nuclear deal, particularly European nations, to pressure the U.S. to lift the crippling sanctions. Meanwhile, crude oil prices climbed following Iran's announcement about the Stena Impero as traders worried the escalating tensions could affect crude supplies. Maritime security in the Strait of Hormuz has deteriorated in recent weeks after six attacks on oil tankers that the U.S. has blamed on Iran — an allegation the Islamic Republic denies. The U.S. has asked Mideast allies like Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates in past weeks to contribute financially and militarily to a Trump administration proposal called the Sentinel Program — a coalition of nations working with the U.S. to preserve maritime security in the Persian Gulf and keep eyes on Iran. Late Friday, officials said the U.S. is sending several hundred troops as well as aircraft and air defense missiles to Saudi Arabia as part of its increased military presence in the region. The move has been in the works for many weeks and is not a response to Friday's seizure by Iran of a British tanker. King Salman approved hosting U.S. armed forces in the kingdom 'to increase joint cooperation in defense and regional security and stability,' a statement in the state-run Saudi Press Agency said. ___ Batrawy reported from Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Associated Press writer Gregory Katz in London contributed to this report.
  • A look at what's happening around the majors today: BE CAREFUL The extreme heat gripping much of the country is having an effect around the major leagues. The Yankees and Rockies have called off most of the pregame activities for their afternoon game — New York is forecast to come close to its first 100-degree day since 2012. It is expected to be 100 in Baltimore, where the Orioles host Boston at night. And it was 94 at Target Field on Friday night — the second-hottest start in park's 10-year history, trailing only a 97-degree reading on July 16, 2012 — when Minnesota faced Oakland. Players appeared to have trouble at times gripping the ball. Twins starter Jake Odorizzi took off his glove during a mound visit in the first inning and peppered both arms with the rosin bag. 'It was only like pitching in a rain forest,' Odorizzi said. 'I was taking the rosin bag and going up and down my arms so I could stop the sweat coming from my hand because I was just pouring sweat. I changed my jersey after the first inning, my hat. I just took it all off and came back fresh. I was pretty drenched out there and I know a lot of guys were in the same place.' MOVING UP San Francisco is back to .500 and has surged into the NL wild-card race, thanks to a seven-game winning streak. Jeff Samardzija and the Giants try to keep it going at home, a day after a botched flyball in the 10th inning gave them a 1-0 victory over the Mets. ... The Indians have moved into playoff contention by winning six in a row. Adam Plutko starts for Cleveland at home against Kansas City. ALL SET The Brewers are expected to activate Gio Gonzalez from the 10-day injured list to start at Arizona. The 33-year-old lefty was 2-1 with a 3.19 ERA in six starts for Milwaukee before being sidelined by arm fatigue. Gonzalez made rehab starts with Class A Carolina and Triple-A San Antonio after going on the injured list May 29. WHAT A RELIEF Red Sox right-hander Nathan Eovaldi is ready to rejoin the Red Sox after missing three months because of elbow surgery. Although he appeared as a starter in all four of his games in April, the 29-year-old will return as a member of the bullpen, possibly the closer. Eovaldi is expected to be activated for the game in Baltimore. WELCOME BACK Journeyman catcher Ryan Lavarnway was a big hit in his return to the majors. With the Reds needing a backstop after a series of injuries left them thin behind the plate, they signed the 31-year-old on Thursday after he was released by the Yankees — he had batted .213 in a Triple-A backup role. Lavarnway hit two homers, doubled and drove in a career-high six runs as Cincinnati lost to St. Louis 12-11 on Friday night. Lavarnway had played a total of 12 games in the big leagues in the last four seasons. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
  • A week after the worst start of his career, Mike Leake came back with his best. Shockingly so. Leake took a perfect game into the ninth inning, losing his bid at baseball immortality when rookie Luis Rengifo hit a leadoff single as the Seattle Mariners beat the Los Angeles Angels 10-0 Friday night. 'It was fun,' Leake said. 'As you get closer, you get the shakes and you have to calm yourself down. Other than that, it's just a matter of making pitches.' There were hugs all around the clubhouse after Leake finished off a one-hitter and stopped Seattle's six-game losing streak. It was an amazing turnaround from his previous outing — the Angels tagged him for seven runs on eight hits in a walk last Friday while he got just two outs, the only time he's been pulled from a start without getting through the first inning. Seattle lost that game 13-0 as two Angels pitchers combined for a no-hitter on a day their club wore the jerseys of late teammate Tyler Skaggs. 'Wow,' Mariners manager Scott Servais said. 'It's baseball, it's just crazy. . Just five, six days ago, he was pitching and they were on everything. So you just never know what you're going to see when you come to the park.' Leake hadn't come close to giving up a hit before Rengifo sent his 79th pitch cleanly between the first and second baseman. He hadn't gone to a three-ball count on any batter and had reached two balls on just six until the ninth. The fans gave Leake a standing ovation after the hit and he quickly waved to acknowledge their cheers. 'I had confidence because we'd faced him two times in the game,' Rengifo said. After a walk to Kevan Smith, Leake (8-8) retired the next three batters, striking out Mike Trout on a full-count pitch to end it. Leake fanned six and walked one. Though all smiles, the bearded, 31-year-old righty admitted he was disappointed. He'd never made it past the seventh inning with a no-hitter at any level. 'Oh, yeah, to get that close,' Leake said. 'Hopefully there's another shot, though.' Leake threw his second career shutout, erasing the sting of his last start. 'I think a little bit more urgency,' Leake said when asked about the difference. 'They came out super urgent last game and I didn't want that to happen again.' Leake, who has been the subject of trade speculation with the rebuilding Mariners, improved to 101-95 in 10 seasons. This was his sixth career complete game, and second this year, in 284 starts. There have been 23 perfect games in major league history, the last by Felix Hernandez of the Mariners in 2012, who was in the dugout cheering Leake. Leake said his teammates began to drift away from him in the dugout as the game progressed. Toward the end no one was talking to him, though he would occasionally catch guys eyeballing him to see what he was doing. Daniel Vogelbach hit two three-run homers and drove in a career high-tying six runs against reliever Jaime Barria (3-3). Leake kept the Angels off the bases with a fastball that was right around 88 mph, along with a cutter, changeup and curve. 'He mixes pitches and mixes speeds,' Angels manager Brad Ausmus said. 'You've got the cutter and sinker moving in two directions. He's got the big curveball. He can sometimes drop his arm a little bit on that and make it sweep away from righties. He did an excellent job, threw strikes. Not a ton of strikeouts, but not a lot of solid contact by us as well. It was his night.' Seattle has six no-hitters in its history, the last by James Paxton against Toronto in May 2018. The Mariners hadn't won since before the All-Star break, a stretch that included their no-hitter loss in LA, and had lost 13 of their last 15. Vogelbach made it 3-0 with a homer in the fourth. He hit his 23rd home run in the fifth. TRAINER'S ROOM Angels: Albert Pujols sat out Friday's game as a precaution. The first baseman came out of Thursday night's game against the Astros with left hamstring tightness. Manager Brad Ausmus said the hope is Pujols will be ready for Saturday's game against the Mariners. . Reliever Keynan Middleton's rehab assignment at Triple-A Salt Lake City has been shut down due to numbness and tingling in his pitching arm. Ausmus said a test showed that Middleton's grafted UCL remains attached. There's no timetable for his return. Mariners: Closer Hunter Strickland will begin a rehabilitation assignment at Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday in his return from a right lat strain that's kept him out since March. Servais said he will need to make three or four appearances in Tacoma before returning to the major league roster to regain his endurance. But he can't get into the lineup soon enough with Seattle's struggles in the bullpen. ... Center fielder Mallex Smith left the game after the fifth inning with a sore right thumb he injured in the game. UP NEXT Angels: RHP Griffin Canning (3-5, 4.74 ERA) will make his first career start against the Mariners. Mariners: Seattle will send a pitcher to be determined to the mound for an inning before turning it over to LHP Wade LeBlanc (5-3, 5.15 ERA). ___ More AP baseball coverage: www.apnews.com/MLB and www.twitter.com/AP_Sports
  • As her campaign bus trundled along Interstate 80 toward the Michigan-Ohio border, Kirsten Gillibrand was offering wedding planning advice to one of her presidential campaign staffers who recently got engaged. The New York senator recommended a Christmas wedding, preferably on a Caribbean island, until a senior aide intervened — reminding Gillibrand that the staffer will be 'otherwise engaged at Christmas,' which is just six weeks before the Iowa caucuses. The good-natured exchange belied a larger doubt hanging over Gillibrand's 2020 bid: Will it really survive to the Feb. 3 caucus that kicks off the process of selecting a Democratic presidential nominee? Many of the candidates mired in the primary's lower tier have quietly begun asking similar questions. Plagued by anemic polling and underwhelming fundraising , some campaigns are falling into a spiral of perceived hurdles that are becoming increasingly self-fulfilling, making it hard to find money to build an expansive campaign organization. The anxiety is building ahead of September's presidential debate, which impose tougher qualification rules that will winnow the field from two dozen candidates. That's a humbling prospect for senators and governors who have spent their political careers building what they hoped would be strong resumes for a White House run only to face the reality that voters aren't interested or, worse, don't know who they are. Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan has run on bridging the divide between the party's liberal and working class wings, but is barely registering in the polls. Appearing recently at a Pizza Hut in Manchester, Iowa, there were five people on hand, three who came to see Ryan, and a woman and her son only there to eat. 'Who is that man?' the woman asked. Others are simply getting lost in the shuffle, especially in early voting states where White House hopefuls flock constantly. At a recent Iowa fundraiser for state Sen. Zach Wahls' birthday, even some of the most active Democrats weren't sure which White House hopefuls they'd seen. 'I think I shook (John) Hickenlooper's hand today,' noted Laura Bergus, a candidate for city council in Iowa City, referring to the former Colorado governor. Some of the most endangered candidates built their runs around signature issues that seemed sure to resonate with their party's base, but have largely fallen flat. Washington Gov. Jay Inslee's focus on climate change hasn't gained him much traction, even as some of his better-known rivals have successfully seized on the issue as the world's most urgent threat. Hickenlooper's pitch as a principled moderate has been largely overlooked and urgent calls for gun control couldn't keep California Rep. Eric Swalwell's now-defunct presidential bid afloat. Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey so far doesn't have much to show for his overarching message of unity-first optimism . Former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke and ex-Obama administration housing chief Julián Castro haven't ridden focuses on softer federal immigration policies to polling success and Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton's calls to impeach President Donald Trump haven't resonated. Gillibrand made advancing women's issues and championing the #MeToo movement the heart of her campaign, but more recently concentrated on showing she's strong enough to take on Trump with a two-day bus tour through Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan, key states for the president's re-election campaign. Gillibrand argued that the president reneged on campaign promises that won him those states in 2016 and she can accomplish what he couldn't, if elected. But her polling has continued to hover at or below 1%, far behind the likes of former Vice President Joe Biden and Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Kamala Harris of California and Bernie Sanders of Vermont. Asked in an interview during a stop in Flint if the bus tour will help her break out in a way her women's rights advocacy couldn't, Gillibrand didn't dispute the premise, but said, 'I think it's more than that.' 'I think I'm showing, by what I'm doing and saying and the ideas that I have, that I can beat President Trump,' she said at a small-plates restaurant in a city whose drinking water crisis became a national scandal. She insisted she's in the race for the long haul and rejects the notion that she's fallen into the Democratic primary's second tier. 'I'm different than other candidates,' Gillibrand said. 'I've taken on the fights that other candidates haven't.' Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, who struggled to get noticed during his 2016 Democratic presidential primary bid, said upcoming debates that exclude lower-tier candidates will necessarily trim the field. But he also said there will still be incentives for those trailing badly to hang on and hope for Iowa caucus shockers. 'The guy who's everybody's second choice can be the surprise,' O'Malley said. 'Iowans usually have a way of making a decision that's contrary to whatever the latest fashion is.' In the meantime, many low-polling candidates are standing by their core messages. Even amid her bus tour decrying Trump, Gillibrand noted during the interview that 'both parties have been compromising on women's health for decades.' At a town hall inside the Cleveland Public Library, she went further, asking about 20 attendees, 'Do we value women? Unfortunately, the answer in our society today is no.' 'It's why we don't prosecute sexual assault. It's why we don't have equal pay. It's why we don't have national paid leave,' Gillibrand said. The crowd seemed moved. A short time later, though, Kittie Warshawsky, a 51-year-old who works for a nonprofit, asked Gillibrand how she would 'get your name out there' given that she mostly failed to get noticed so far. Gillibrand said that was what the 'Trump broken promises' bus tour was all about accomplishing. Afterward, Warshawsky called Gillibrand 'terrific' but said of her chances in the primary, 'I don't have an answer yet on how she's going to get through.' ___ Associated Press writer Alexandra Jaffe in Manchester, Iowa, contributed to this report.
