Question of the Day
The golfer, at the Shady Canyon Golf Course in Irvine, landed a shot in the rough Saturday.
On his next swing, his club snagged a rock, causing a spark that lit the rough ablaze and eventually attracted 150 firefighters to the scene.
Officials said the fire burned through the rough, into vegetation next to the course and over two dry, brushy hillsides.
No charges were filed against the golfer.
Court upholds permit for wind farm
BOSTON | Massachusetts’ highest court has rejected claims by opponents of a wind farm off Cape Cod that the project sidestepped proper permitting.
The Supreme Judicial Court on Tuesday backed a 2009 decision by the state Energy Facilities Siting Board to grant the Cape Wind project permission to build power transmission lines through state waters.
A different finding could have threatened the entire project, which would be the nation’s first offshore wind farm.
The court said that would have wrongly given the board power to reject the whole project.
