Bell was pronounced dead at the scene. Police responded to an area near Tanyard Cove Road and Marley Neck Boulevard shortly after 4 a.m. on Sunday, when they found two suspicious vehicles on a dirt road: one empty, and the other occupied by a male and female.

Barreling along Virginia's back-country roads almost an hour west of Richmond, I'm beginning to doubt we'll ever reach Farmville. It's been nearly three hours since we crossed the Woodrow Wilson Bridge in Washington and plowed down I-95, though the last 30 miles have been lovely. A gothic-looking railroad bridge rivaling a Roman aqueduct crosses the James River, then it's rolling green countryside and woods. But I'm ready to shop. A friend who is about to open an interior design business has heard about Green Front Furniture, an import business in rural Farmville that offers a huge selection of higher-end furniture, accessories and especially Oriental rugs at up to 50 percent off regular retail prices, and she is eager to check it out. I want to cover a roomful of bare floor without spending the equivalent of the national debt.

Tiger Woods might be the favorite to win the 100th U.S. Open, but here are five players with a good chance to beat him. Phil Mickelson: When he turned pro for the 1992 Open, most figured that Mickelson would win his share of majors. When he turns 30 this week, he will still be looking for his first. But after finishing second to Payne Stewart last year and having won three times this year, Lefty seems ready. Colin Montgomerie: Many figured he had won the Open the last time it was at Pebble Beach when he came off the course at even-par and the winds were kicking up to 50 mph. He finished third, and has come close a couple of other times, most recently at Congressional in 1997.

Eighteen suddenly seems like an awfully large number, like Roger Maris' 61 and Hank Aaron's 755. Those figures towered over baseball until sluggers began injecting power into their veins. But Tiger Woods won't be able to ingest his way to Jack Nicklaus' record for major championships. If there existed a pill to help make 12-footers, we all would have taken it by now. Just 81/2 months ago, around the time Americans were pouring gravy on their stuffing and dark meat, Woods seemed an absolute cinch to reach 18. Not yet 34, Woods had claimed 14 majors, one by 15 strokes (the 2000 U.S. Open)
