GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — As customers hauled off the dwindling inventory of discounted pianos and guitars, Buster Lipham proudly laid out souvenirs on the glass display counter, evidence of his contribution to rock 'n' roll history.

There's the black-and-white photo of a teenage Tom Petty and other kids sitting in Lipham Music when it was on North Main and 10th streets in the mid-1960s.

There's the Allman Brothers Band records At Fillmore East and Idlewild South that list Buster Lipham and Lipham Music in the "thanks to" album credits after he fronted the band $13,276 worth of gear on credit, minus about $6,000 for trade-in equipment.

There's the autographed album "to Buster" from Iron Butterfly.

NSC backs disclosing software vulnerabilities PDF  | Print |  E-mail

WASHINGTON (AP) — Disclosing vulnerabilities in commercial and open source software is in the national interest and shouldn't be withheld from the public unless there is a clear national security or law enforcement need, President Barack Obama's National Security Council said Saturday.

The statement of White House policy came after a computer bug called "Heartbleed" caused major security concerns across the Internet and affected a widely used encryption technology, the variant of SSL/TLS known as OpenSSL, that was designed to protect online accounts. Major Internet services worked this week to insulate themselves against the bug.

The NSC, which Obama chairs, advises the president on national security and foreign policy matters. Its spokeswoman, Caitlin Hayden, said in a statement Saturday that the federal government was not aware of the Heartbleed vulnerability in OpenSSL until it was made public in a private sector cybersecurity report. The federal government relies on OpenSSL to protect the privacy of users of government websites and other online services, she said.

Ohio begins pushback against college player unions PDF  | Print |  E-mail

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — State pushback against a movement to unionize college athletes has begun in Ohio, the football-loving heart of a heated anti-labor campaign in 2011 and home to one of America's highest-grossing collegiate franchises, the Ohio State Buckeyes.

A measure approved by the state House on Wednesday, two weeks after a federal agency said football players at Northwestern University could unionize, clarifies that college athletes aren't public employees. The proposal appears to be the first of its kind to clear a state legislative chamber; it heads next to the state Senate.

The opposite is happening in Connecticut, where lawmakers are looking at clearing the path for college athletes to unionize. Some observers, though, think other states are more likely to follow Ohio's lead.

"This is a pre-emptive move," said John Russo, a union organization expert who formerly directed Youngstown State University's Center for Working-Class Studies.

Six Flags theme park planned for Dubai PDF  | Print |  E-mail

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Dubai could soon have some new roller coasters to go with its man-made islands and the world's tallest skyscraper.

Newspapers in the Middle Eastern emirate reported Sunday that local property developer Meraas Holding has reached a deal with Six Flags Entertainment to build a theme park in the city's largely industrial outskirts.

The park will be in the Jebel Ali area, which is home to the region's biggest port and aluminum smelter. It is expected to open in 2017. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Dubai previously had a deal with Six Flags and several other companies to build multiple theme parks in a different area known as Dubailand. Plans for that Six Flags park were scrapped in the wake of Dubai's financial crisis, which came to a head in 2009.
