Man allegedly takes child from mother


From staff reports

A Russellville, Ala., man was
arrested on Dec. 3 after allegedly
taking a five-month-old child
against the will of the mother.


James T. Keenum Jr. was
charged with interference with
custody.
A disturbance call was placed
to the Jackson County Sheriff's
Office around 9 p.m. from an


America's Best Value Inn on Hwy
71 South. Officers were told Kee-
num had taken the child and
threatened the mother if she
called for help. Keenum is be-
lieved to be the child's father, but


under Florida Law if the parents
have never married and paternal
custodial rights have not been
defined by the courts, the moth-
er has custody of the child.
A Be on the Lookout or BOLO


was given to local law enforce-
ment. Keenum was spotted by a
deputy on Magnolia Road and a
traffic stop took place.
The child was found uninjured
and given back to the mother.


MUSIC OF THE SEASON



School bands performing



for the Christmas season


Members of the Sneads'High School Band practice for their Dec. 12 Christmas conceit Monday afternoon.

Marianna, Sneads and Cottondale high schools to hold concerts Dec. 9,12


BY LAUREN DELGADO
Idelgado@jcfloridan.com

School bands have been practicing
for weeks some months for their
iChristmas concerts, most of which are
taking place in the next week.
Marianna High School will kick offthe
Christmas concerts at 7 p.m. Dec. 9, at
the school's auditorium. Band Booster
Secretary Mary Starling said the 90-
member band has been practicing a
set list that includes "Rockin' Around
the Christmas Tree" since November.
"This is the culmination of all the fall
and winter music that they've been
practicing," Starling said.
Although the MHS Concert itself is
free, the band will hold a spaghetti
dinner fundraiser from 4-6 p.m. in the
school cafeteria. All the funds will go


toward paying for the mileage to get to
events and the band banquet.
"It's for the community to come out
and just enjoy the music and get ready
for the holiday season," said Starling.
The Sneads High School band will
celebrate the season at 5:30 p.m. on
Dec. 12, in the school auditorium. This
free performance will feature songs like
the "Ukrainian Bell Carol."' Band direc-
tor Jenny Parmer said the 20-member
band has been practicing for about
two or three weeks.
. "The kids are there to have fun and to
just enjoy the Christmas season," Par-
mer said.
About 90 students will perform at
Cottondale High School's Christmas
concert at 7 p.m. on Dec. 12, at the
school's gymnasium. Performances
by the sixth, seventh and eighth grade

bands members and the high school

er Rebecca Dilmore said some of the
groups have been practicing since the
beginning of the year.
"My students have been working
hard and they're looking forward to
performing in front of an audience,"
Dilmore said.


State News

Gov. goes slowly on changes to pension


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE Heading
into a crucial election year,
Florida Gov. Rick Scott won't
be pushing any further chang-
es to the state's massive $100
billion plus pension plan.
Scott is releasing his budget
proposal for 2012 later this
week and the governor will
ask for a small amount of tax
cuts, enough money to avoid
potential cuts to schools and
higher health insurance pre-
miums for state workers.
While he has not said much
about it so far, Scott has said it
will be a "tight budget" given a
nearly $2 billion shortfall.


"We should all expect our
government to be efficient, so
I've asked all our agencies to
tighten their belts just like all
Floridians have," Scott said on
Monday. "We're going to have
make choices."
But emails obtained by
The Associated Press show
that while Scott wants more
changes to the state pension
plan, he and his staff agreed
to wait until 2013 before pur-
suing them.
That's a remarkable turn-
around from earlier this year
when Scott pushed for exten-
sive changes to the Florida
Retirement System that cov-
ers roughly 900,000 current or


retired firefighters, teachers
and other public employees.
Shortly after he became
governor, Scott said both local
and state pension plans were
a "ticking fiscal time bomb."
Back in February the gover-
nor wanted to shut down the
main pension plan to new
employees, and he wanted
public employees to contrib-
ute five percent of their salary
to help cover pension costs.
Legislators instead settled
for a three percent contribu-
tion rate that public employee
unions are now challenging in
the courts. The lawsuit con-
tends that the changes vio-
lated contract and collective


bargaining rights guaranteed
by the state constitution.
Brian Burgess, a spokesman
for Scott, said Monday that
governor remains committed
to making the pension plan
"fiscally sound" and looking
for a "path forward on pen-
sion reform."
The main pension plan,
worth $114 billion at the end
of September, does not right
now have enough money to
cover all current and future
benefits for public employ-
ees. It is about 13 percent
underfunded though still
considered healthy by many

Goodwill


building


apartments


in Chipley

New complex will house

people with disabilities

BY LAUREN DELGADO
ldelgado@jcfloridan.com

Goodwill Industries will be building a
15-unit apartment complex in Chipley
for people with disabilities. Adminis-
trators are hopeful the construction
will start this coming summer and the
apartments will be available by April
2013.
"Families or individuals can now
move out of living with their parents or
wherever they're forced to live because
of accessibility issues," said Fred Shelf-
er, Goodwill Industries Big Bend, Inc.,
President/CEO.
"It's very important td open up units
in different communities so people can
be close to family and friends, their sup-
port system," said Brook Lochore, Vice
President of Public Relations.
Jackson County residents are eligible
to apply for this housing. As the open-
ing date nears, Goodwill will release in-
formation on how to apply.
Five of the units will have two bed-
rooms, and 10.will be one bedroom
apartments. The resident manager
will live in one of the two-bedroom
apartments.
The apartments will be set up to be
handicap accessible. The doorways and
hallways will be wide enough for wheel-
chairs, all the appliances will have the
switches and knobs in the front and
there will be roll-in showers.
"Those little things that we take for
granted are so important for people
with issues of mobility," Shelfer said. *
To ensure its residents have easy ac-
cess to shopping and amenities, the
complex will be located near Washing-
ton Square'Shopping Center in Chipley.
The complex will cost about $1.4 mil-
lion and will be financed through U.S.
Department of Housing and Urban
Development. Over 400 people in the
Big Bend area are housed by Goodwill
Industries Big Bend, with seven apart-
ment complexes in North Florida and
four in South Georgia.

Chipola biology students visit Apalachicola Bluffs


Special to the Floridan

Chipola College biology
professor Dr. David Hilton
and 14 students from his
conservation biology class
recently hiked the 3.75-
mile Garden of Eden Trail
at the Apalachicola Bluffs
and Ravines Preserve near
Bristol.
The students were able
to observe steephead
ravines, some of the rarest
of freshwater habitats.
Dr. Hilton said, "These
unique features are the
only places on earth
.where two rare ever-
greens, the Florida torreya
and Florida yew can be
found."
The trail begins in a,
longleaf and wiregrass


upland and ends with a
spectacular view at Alum
Bluff, 135 feet above-the
Apalachicola River.
The hike is moderately
difficult as hikers climb
down into and then out of
two of the ravines.
The 6,295-acre preserve
is owned and main-
tained by the Nature
Conservancy.
Several restoration proj-
ects are currently under
way, from the re-introduc-
tion of native species to
the control and removal
of invasive, non-native
species.
The Nature Conser-
vancy also provides land
management assistance
for neighboring Torreya
State Park..

Obama prods GOP



on payroll tax cut


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON President Barack
Obama accepted a move by Senate Dem-
ocrats to scale back iis Social Security
payroll tax cut extension on Monday, then
prodded Republicans to support it de-'
spite a requirement for the very wealthy
to pay more taxes.. .
Obama.also called on lawmakers to re-,
:new a program of extended unemploy-
ment benefits due io expire on Dec. 31.,
He said the checks, which kick in after six
months of joblessness, are "the last line
of defense between hardship and catas-
trophe" for some victims of the recession
and a painfully slow recovery.
The president made his remarks at the
White,House as Republicans and Demo-
crats in Congress said a holiday-season
package was beginning to come into fo-
cus that'could cost $180 billion or more
over a decade. Elements include not only
the payroll tax cut and unemployment
benefit renewals, bit also a provision to
avert a threatened 27 percent reduction
in fees to doctors who treat Medicare
patients.
\Whiile there are differences over the de- "
tails of the three principal components-
many Republicans are reluctant to extend
the tax cut there is at least as much
disagreement between senior lawmakers
in the two political parties over ways to
cover the cost so deficits don't rise.
Officials said that to offset the two-year,
$38 billion price tag of the Medicare pro-
vision, House Republicans want to cut
funds from the year-old health care leg-
islation that stands as Obama's signature
domestic policy accomplishment. Some-
Democrats want instead to count defense
funds approved bui unspent for the wars
hn Iraq and Afghanistan a proposal that
man\ GOP lat-wmakers deem an account-
ing gimmick.
The Medicare proposal enjoys strong.
popularity among lawmakers in both.
parties. House Republican leaders sig-
naled last week they intend to include it
in the overall package as a sweetener for
members of the parry's rank and file who
are unhappy at the prospect of extending
the payroll tax cut.
GOP critics say there is no evidence that
the currenttax cut has helped create jobs,
and also say they fear the impact of are-
newal on the deficit and on the fund that


pays Social, Security benefits. A majority
of Republican senators voted last week
against a plan backed by their own lead-
ership'to extend the cut.
But Obama noted House Speaker John
Boehner, R-Ohio, has said that the reneiv-
al would help the economy, and said the
parry's Senate leaders had made similar
comments.
"I couldn't agree more. And I hope that
the rest of their Republican colleagues
, come around-and join Democrats to pass
these tax cuts and put money back into
the pockets of working Americans," the
president said.. '
Obama also added; "I know many .Re-
publicans have sworn an oath never to
raise taxes as long as they live. How could,
it be that the only time there's a catch is
when it comes to raisingtaxes on middle-
class families? How can you fight tooth
and nail to protect high-end tax breaks
for the wealthiest Americans; and yet
barely lift a finger to prevent taxes going
up for 160 million Americans who really
need.the help?" ,
. He spoke as Senate Democrats unveiled
revisions that cut the cost of the admin-
istration's proposal by one-third, to an.
estimated $179 billion. As rewritten, it
deepens the current Social Security pay-
roll tax cut and extends it until the end
of 2012, but jettisons Obama's request to
give businesses relief at the same time.
Republicans were critical despite the
changes.
"Frankly, the only thing bipartisan
about this latest political gambit is oppo-
sition to the permanent ta\ hike on small
businesses to pay for temporary one-year
taxpolicy," said Sen. Otrin Hatch, R-lJtah,
the senior Republican on the Senate Fi-
nance .Committee. Republicans often
refer to the proposal as a tax increase on
smallbusiness owners in hopes of recast-
ing Democratic claims that it would fall
on "millionaires and billionaires."
Advanced by Sen. Bob Ca:ey, D-Pa., the
revised proposal also scales back the sur-
tax on seven-figture earners that Demo-
crats had originally proposed to cover the
bill's entire cost, from 3.25'percent to 1.9
percent. Also included are higher fees for
consumers whose mortgages are from
Fannie NMae and Freddie Mac, as well as
a GOP proposal from last week to make
sure millionaires don't receive unemploy-
ment benefits o0t food stamps. ..


Feds will allow the use of


Medicare data to rate doctors


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON Picking a specialist
for a delicate medical procedure like a
heart bypass could get a lot,easier in the
not-too-distant future.
The government announced Monday
that Medicare will finally allow its exten-
sive claims database to be used by em-
ployers, insurance companies and con-
sumer groups to produce report. cards
on local doctors and hospitals.
By analyzing masses of billing records,
experts can glean such critical informa-
tionas how often a doctor has performed
a particular procedure and get a general
sense of problems such, as preventable
complications.
Doctors, will be individually identifi-
able through the Medicare files, but
personal data on their patients willre-
main confidential. Compiled in an eas-
ily understood format and released to
the public, medical report cards could.
become a powerful tool for promoting
quality care..


"There is tremendous variation in
how well doctors do, and most of us as
patients don't know that. We make our
choices blind," said David Lansky, presi-
dent of the Pacific Business Group on
Health. "This is the beginning of a pro-
cess to give us the information to make

Parents: Doctors don't sayif childish overweight


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON Pe-
diatricians are supposed
to track if' youngsters
are putting on too many
pounds but anew Study
found less than a quarter
of.parents of overweight
children recallthe doctor
ever saying there' was a
problem.
Does thatmean doctors
aren't' screening enough'
kids, or aren't frank
enough in these tough
conversations? Or is the
real story parent denial?
The research published
Monday can't tell,. but
makes it clear the mes-
sage too often isn't getting
through. '
"It's tricky to say, and it's
Sticky to hear," says lead
researcher Dr. Eliana Per-
rin of the University of
North Carolina. She ana-
lyzed government health
surveys that included
nearly 5,000 parents, of
overweight children from
1999 to 2008.
.Parents tend not to
realize when a weight

on their children. When
almost a. third of U.S.
children are at least over-
weight, and about 17 per-
cent are obese, it's harder
to notice that there's any-
thing unusual about their
'own families. Plus, chil-
dren :change as they grow
older.
The new study suggests
when parents do recall a
doctor noting the prob-
lem, it'sbeengoingonfor a
while. About 30 percent ot
the parents of overweight
12- to 15-year-olds said a
doctor had alerted them,
compared with just 12,


percent of the parents of
overweight preschoolers.
.Even among the parents of
very obese children, only
58 percent recalled a doc-
tor discussing it, says the
report published Monday
by the journal Archives of
Pediatrics & Adolescent
Medicine.
"Many pediatricians
don't worry until children
are very overweight, -or
until ,they're much older,"
says Perrin, whose team
has created stoplight-col-
ored growth charts to help
doctors explain when a
problem's brewing.

Obama fights for Jewish


support amid GOP attacks


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON Presi-
dent Barack Obama and
his Republican opponents
are clashing over U.S. pol-
icy toward Israel as each
side jockeys for support
from Jewish voters, who
could be critical in the
2012 election.
Aiming to cast Obama
as unfairly harsh toward
Israel and soft on the,
Palestinians, Republi-
can presidential hopefuls
Mitt Romney. and Newt
Gingrich have called on
the president to fire his
ambassador to Belgium.
The envoy, Howard Gut-
man, had. said that some
anti-Semitism stemmed
from tensions between Is-
rael and the Palestinians;
Romney and Gingrich
say his remarks unfairly
blamed Israel.
The White. House says
Obama has a strong record
on support for Israel, and
quickly fired back with a
statement condemning
"anti-Semitism in all its,
forms." The State Depart-
ment said Gutman would"
remain in his job.
SRepublicans also chal-
lenged Obama's assertion
at a fundraiser last week
that "this administration
has done more in terms,
of the security of the state
of Israel than any previous
administration." Romney
said Obama has "repeat.-
edly thrown Israel under
the bus" -' an accusation
the Republican Natiohal
Committee, repeated
Monday.
Firing back, Demo-"
cratic National Commit-
tee Chairwoman Debbie
Wasserman Schultz called
Romney'scomments"out-
Tageous" and questioned
hisownpolicies.
The White House cited
military aid to Israel and
support at' the United.
Nations, and pointed to
statements from Israeli of-
ficials backing up Obama's
assertion._
The. fiery debate will
likely continue Wednes-
day when the GOP presi-
dential candidates attend
a Washington forum host-
ed by the Republican jew-
ish Coalition.
Obama campaign offi-
cials say they will be ready
to respond. And the next
day, Jewish leaders will
be at the White House for
briefings on Israel and a,
Hanukkah parry, followed
by an Obama speech next'
week to an expected audi-
ence of nearly 6,000 at a
conference .of the Union
for Reform Judaism.
Such attention is all be-
ing paid in recognition
that Jewish voters, though*
comprising only 2 percent
of the electorate nation-,
wide, are an important
part of Obanma's base and
could make the difference
in battleground states in-
cluding Florida, Pennsyl-
vania,; Ohio and Nevada
in a close election. More-
over, the Jewish com-
munity is an important
source of donations, and .
Obama campaign sup-
porters want to maintain .
that support as much as
Republicans want to chip
away at it.
-'This campaign takes
the Jewish vote very, very
seriously," said Ira For-
man, the Obama cam-
paign Jewish outreach di-
rector. "I'm confident this
will be the most compre-
hensive effort in presiden-
tial campaign history."
The White House out-
reach has increased since
May when Obama caused
a furor by calling for Is-,
rael's 1967 borders, with
agreed-upon land swaps,
as a basis for resuming
negotiations toward a


two-state solution with
the Palestinians. Israeli


In this Dec. 2 photo, President Barack Obama speaks at the
Interior Department in Washington.


Prime minister Benjamin
Netanyahu rejected the
'67 borders as indefensi-
ble and largely disregard-
ed Obama's emphasis on
land swaps to account for
current conditions.
Republicans seized on
the dispute. And while
Obama supporters say his
argument was widely mis-
characterized,. damage
was done. Now the Oba ma
campaign and its backers
say they are determined
to respond rapidly to such
criticism in future.
!"We are trying to re-
sponsibly respond to all
of these unsubstanti-
ated or false allegations,
but there are so many of
them, and they are so fre-
quently recited despite
the fact that the people
who are spreading them
have to know that they're
false, that it's hard to
'keep up with them," said
A.lan Solow. an Obanma
fundraiser and longtime
associate.
The effort involves using
surrogates including Vice
President Joe Biden. and
use of the president's own
time in public appearanc-
es and private talks with
donors and religious lead-
ers, such as a conference
call between Obama and
rabbis ahead of the lewish
New Year this fall.
.The Obama campaign
also is going on the of-
fense against Republican. '
In conversations about
the Je\wish vote, Obama
backers are quick to bring
up comments by Romney,
Gingiich and Rick Perry at,
a debate last month sug-
gesting they would start
foreign aid for all coun-
tries at zero.
Obama supporters say
that would imperil fund-
ing for Israel, ev en though
the candidates also sought
to affirm their support for
the Jewish state. .
Democratic candidates
typically enjoy a big elec-
toral advantage among
Tewish voters. Obamawon
78 percent of the Jewish
vote in 2008, compared
with 21 percent for Re-
publican John McCain.
.But Galliup has found
that Obama's approval
rating among, Jews has
fallen from 83 percent in
January 2009 to 54 per-
cent in late summer and
early fall of this year. Still,
that figure is much higher
than his overall 41 percent
approval rating, and the
drop-off in support was
about in line with other
voter groups.
Sid Dinerstein, chair-
man of the Palm Beach


County Republican Party
in Florida, predicted that
Obama would be. limited
to around 60 percent of
the Jewish vote in 2012.'
Obanma backers say that,
won't happen, but it could
mean a potentially deci-
sihe difference of tens of
thousands of votes in key
states.
A candidate's position,
on Israel may hot be the
top issue for most Jewish
voters, who like others are
more motivated by jobs
and the economy.
But it's important to
many, and. Republicans
see an opening, given'
die consternation over
Obama's 19,67 borders
speech, 'his administra-
tion's rebukes of Israel
for building settlements
in disputed areas, and a
recent incident in which
Obania was overheard ap-
pearing to endorse critid-
cism of Netanyahu from
French President Nicolas
Sarkozy. : .
"The realiry is that the
lewish community under-
stands that on a number of
critical issues this admin-
istration has undermined
not only the U.S.-Israel re-
lationship, but has made
Israel more vulnerable,"
said Matt Brooks, execu-
tive director of the Repub-
lican Jewish Coalition.
Brooks points to the re-
cent upset in New York's
special election Jto re-
place Democratic Rep.
An tho n y Weiner, in which
Republican Bob Turner
.won 'in the heavily Jew-
ish district. Brooks says.
this was a warning sign to
Obama on his stance on
Israel. Obama supporters
say other factors were at
play, including the heavily
Orthodox and more con-,
serxati\e makeup of the
district.'
But even strong sup-
porters are disappointed
that Obama has not yet
traveled to Israel in his ca-
pacity as president, after
delivering a major speech
in Cairo early in his ad-
ministration. An Israel
trip had been rumored to
be in the works but seems
unlikely to happen prior
to the 2012 election.
Democratic Rep. Steve
Rothman said he remains
hopeful a trip will happen,
in the next year.
"No president has been
perfect on every subject,.
though history will record
that Obama has been the
best president for Israel
when it comes to military
and intelligence support,"
said Rothman of New
Jersey.

EiEmails' show that Scott wanted back
in October to send a letter to the state's'
120 legislators about the pension plan.'
He wanted to point out them there are
.more than 3,165 retirees receiving, more
than $75,000 per year in retirement pay-
ments and the pension plan has an $18
billion shortfall that would require a 12
percent return over 30 years to become
fully funded.
"How does this compare to the returns
you are getting on your bank savings?"
the draft letter reads. "As you know, I.re- .
ceive $.01'per month in compensation.
I am not a participant in the state pen-
sion plan. My concern is for the thou-
sands of Floridians who are relying on the
state pension plan, which is significantly
underfunded."
Around the same time Scott was draw-,
ing lip the letter he was making appear-
ances on television and editorial boards

Costello, the governor's legislative, af-
fairs director, asked other top officials in
the governor's office to think twice be-
fore sending out the letter to legislators.
Costello noted that Scott was "hot about
pensions the other day and I am not sure
he considered what this may signal when
he sends it."
In another e-mail Costello wrote: "Since
we don't plan on tackling this in 2012 we
are telegraphing a fight that we don't even
want to have, furthermore (budget direc-
tori lerry (McDaniel) has indicated that
in our budget we likely can fund no more
than normal cost, meaning we won't be;
showing any leadership in our budget
on closing the funding gap. I think this
is something we tee up post session and
then push for further reforms in 2013."
Costello on the same day sent another
email: "Spoke with gov. He agrees it prob-
ably isn't the right time to send the letter
out."
Sen. Jeremy Ring, D-Margate and one of
those deeply involved in last year's pen-
sion reform legislation, said that Scont is
making the Tight move to wait for now. '..
Ring said state lawmakers need to see
what happens if the courts rule against
the Legislature on the changes adopted
this past spring.
"We put a lot of effort into it last year, we
made same reforms," Ring said. "We will
have to see what happens there."

Postal cutbacks to delay st-class mail


The Associated Press,

NEWYORK Utility bills are paid, legal
briefs are filed and'the Christmas shop-,
ping all get's done online. But for maga-.
.zines, clothing catalogues and movies,
the mail still matters.
For some mail-dependent businesses,
quick and cheap first-class mail service
from the U.S. Postal Service is still the
best way to reach prospective customers
and subscribers. And for many, it's still an
important way to get paid.
The Postal Service, which has been los-
ing money for five years, said Monday
that it is, shuttering more than 200 mail
processing centers, adding at least a day's
wait for many first-class deliveries. The
news was met with concern and frustra-
tion from some businesses and shrugs
from others that long ago stopped relying
on the post office.
"It's less of a disaster than it would have
been 10 years ago, but it'll be a cash flow
crunch for some companies," said Todd
McCracken, president and chief execu-


tive of the National Small Business Asso-
ciation. "It'll be longer to getyour invoice,
andjonger to get a check back."
First-class mail is supposed to arrive
at U.S. homes and businesses in one to
three days; about 42 percent of it arrives
in one day. The cutbacks will back up de-
liveries to two to three days; periodicals
could take up to nine days.
Most Netflix customers who subscribe
to the company's DVD-by-mail service
watch movies on: the weekends and
should still be able to return movies Mon-
day and have new ones on Friday, accord-
ing to Michael Pachter,'an analyst at the
investment firm Wedbush.
- Netflix one of the Postal Service's
biggest customers, with expenses of up
to $600 million a year has repeatedly
warned in regulatory filings that any Post-
al Service cutbacks that delay its DVD-by-
mail deliveries will make it more difficult
to keep subscribers happy.
But for many companies, the changes
will have no effect. Some have already
stopped relying on the Postal Service.

Protesters accuse Putin's party of rigging vote


The Associated Press

MOSCOW Several
thousand protesters took
to the streets Monday night
and accused Prime Minis-
ter Vladimir Putin's party
of rigging this weekend's
parliamentary election in
which it won the largest
share of the seats.
Itwasperhaps the biggest
opposition rally in years
and ended with police de-
taining about 300 activists.
A group of several hundred
marched toward the Cen-
tral Elections Commission
near the Kremlin, but were
stopped by riot police and
taken away in buses.
Estimates of the num-
ber of protesters ranged
from 5,000 to 10,000. They
chanted "Russia without
Putin" and accused his
United Russia party of
stealing votes. In St. Pe-
tersburg, police detained
about 120 protesters.
United Russia won about
50 percent of Sunday's
vote,' a result that opposf-
tion politicians and elec-
tion monitors said was
inflated because of ballot-
box stuffing and other vote
fraud. It was a significant
drop from the last elec-
tion, when the party took
64 percent.
Pragmatically, the loss
of seats in the State Duma
appears to mean little-be-
cause two of the three other
parties winning seats have
been reliable supporters of
government legislation.,
Nevertheless,: it was a
substantial symbolic blow
to a party that had become
virtually indistinguishable
from the state itself.
The. result has also ener-
gized the opposition and
poses a humbling chal-
lenge to Putin, the coun-
try's dominant figure;, in
'his drive to return to the
presidency.
Putin, who became
prime minister in 2008 be-
cause of presidential term
limits, will run for a third


term in March, and some
opposition leaders saw the
parliamentary election as
a game-changer for what
had been presumed to be
his easy stroll back to the
Kremlin.
More than 400 Com-
munist Party supporters
also gathered Monday to
express their indignation
over the election, which
some called the dirtiest in
modern Russian history.
The Communists finished
second with about 20 per-
cent of the vote.
"'Even compared to the
2007 elections, violations
by the authorities and the
government bodies that
actually control the work
of all election organiza-
tions at all levels, from lo-
cal to central, were so ob-
vious and so brazen," said
Yevgeny Dorovin, a mem-
ber of the party's central
committee..
Putin appeared subdued
and glum even as he in-
sisted at a Cabinet meet-
ing Monday that the result
"gives United Russia the
possibility to work calmly
and smoothly."
Although the 'sharp
decline for United Rus-
sia could lead Putin and'
the party to try to portray
the election as genuinely
democratic,, the wide re-
ports .of violations have
undermined that attempt
at spin.
Boris Nemtsov, a promi-
nent figure among Russia's
beleagueredliberalopposi-
tion, declared that the vote
spelled the end of Putin's
"honeymoon" with the-na-
don and predicted that his
rule will soon "collapse like
a house of cards.",
"He needs to hold an
honest presidential elec-
tion and allow opposition
candidates to register for.
the race, if he doesn't want
to be booed from Kam-
chatka to Kaliningrad,"
Nemtsov said on Ekho
Nloskvy radio.
NMany Russians have


come to despise United
Russia, seeing it as the en-
gine of endemic corrup-
tion. The balloting showed
voters that they have pow-
er despite what election
monitors called a dishon-
est count.
"Yesterday, it was proven
by these voters that not ev-
erything was fixed, that the
result really matters," said
Tiny Kox of the Council of
Europe's Parliamentary
Assembly, part of an inter-
national election observer
mission.
Other than the Com-
munist Party, the socialist
Just Russia and the Lib-
eral Democratic Party are
also expected to increase
their representation in the
Duma.

faith to hire me. I enjoyed my


time here."

Meyer's past, present give Notre Dame, No. 25 FSU


Gator Bowl, marquee matchup meet in Champs Sports Bowl


The Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE Ur-
ban Meyer's former and fu-
ture teams will play in the
Gator Bowl.
Florida (6-6) and Ohio
State (6-6) were chosen
Sunday to meet in the
Jan. 2 game in Jackson-
ville, a marquee matchup
between once-proud pro-
grams that slipped sig-
nificantly this season. The
teams last played in the
2006 national champion-
ship game, which Florida
won 41-14.' -
Meyer's hiring earlier
in the week in Columbus
makes the rematch even
more intriguing.
But both sides insist it
won't be a distraction,
even though Meyer already
has lured highly regarded
strength coach Mickey Ma-'
rotti away from Florida.
"I don't know that this is;,
going to make it any more
difficult for me," Ohio
State interim coach Luke,
Fickell said on a confer-
ence call Sunday evening.
"I don't know that it could
get more difficult. It might
be a unique situation for
the other people involved.
But for our coaches and
our players, I don't know.
that they'll knowmuch of a
difference.... (We're) trying
to do the best job we can to
end the season on a good
note with all the ups and
downs we've had."
Meyer won vwo national
tides in six years with the
Gators. He left Gainesville
after last season, citing
health concerns and a de-
sire to spend more time
with his family, and be-
came a college football an-
alyst for ESPN. He walked


"Urban did a great job during his time at the
University of Florida. I'm very appreciative of
what he did, but we've moved on and we're looking
forward to playing the game."
Will Muschamp,
','lorida head coach


away from the network last
weekend and was officially
introduced Monday.
Fickell, who took over
when. Jim Tressel was.
forced out for breaking
NCAA rules, will lead the,
Buckeyes through the-
lbowl. Meyer has retained
Fickell as an assistant,.
Will Muschamp, a former
defensive coordinator at
Texas, replaced Meyer last
December and has strug-
gled to pick up the pieces.
The Gators lost six of their
last eight games, and had
to rally to beat lower-divi-
sion Furman last month.
"Based on what I know,
Urban won't coach the
game," Muschamp said. "I
don't think it would be any,
distraction. We've moved
on. Urban did a great job
during his time at the Uni-
versity of Florida. I'm very
appreciative of what he
did, but we've moved on
and we're looking forward
to playing the game."
Nluschamp called his
team "soft" following a 21 -
7 loss to rival Florida State
last. weekend, :but added
that fans shouldn't blame
"who was here before."
That would be Meyer,
who has come under fire
for seemingly leaving be-
hind a team that lacks tal-
ent and depth.
NMuschamp has insisted
repeatedly that the Gators
are close to getting back
to an elite level, basically


where Meyer had them in
2006, 2008 and 2009.
Meyer won national
championships in 2006
and 2008 at Florida. He
stepped away to take care
of his health and spend
more time with his fam-
ily, including two daugh-
ters who play college
volleyball.
But he was the. obvious
choice at Ohio State, even
though his return has an-
gered many Florida fans.-
Meyer takes over a pro-
gram that is likely facing
NCAA sanctions and was
crippled by the forced res-
ignation .of Tressel. The
Buckeyes completed their
only season under Fickell
with a 40-34 loss to Michi-
gan last weekend that
snapped a seven-game
winning streak against
their rivals.
Ohio State lost its final,
three games.
"I don't know that you
could get any more dis-
tractions than what we've
had," Fickell said. "I think'
our guys are just so excited
to have some clarity about
what's going to happen in
the future so they can put
those things behind them.
I don't think this will be
nearly as hard on them ....
That you're playing Flori-
da, all the other stuff with
coach Meyer and that's
where he came from. to
me, won't have an effect on
our guys."


The Associated Press

ORLANDO, Fla. Two
of the nation's most storied
college football programs
will match up when Notre
Dame and No. 25 Florida
State meet in the Champs
Sports Bowl Dec. 29.
The Seminoles and
Fighting Irish bring a
high-powered matchup
to the Florida Citrus Bowl
thanks to a pair of second-
year coaches that have
energized their respective
fan bases.
* The schools have met six
times previously 'with the
Seminoles holding a 4-2
edge. FSU also beat Notre
Dame 31-26 in the 1996
Orange Bowl.
The Champs is nor-
mally a matchup of ACC
and Big East schools, but
has the option of select-
ing the independent Irish
(8-4) one time over the life
of, the current four-year
contract.
The Seminoles 18-4.),
representing the Atlantic
Coast Conference. came
into the year trailed by
talk of possibly making
a national tide run. But
after some early and late-
season stumbles, coach
Jimbo Fisher is focused
on ensuring his team ends
the year on a high note as
it prepares to reload this
offseason.
Fisher said his team is
already embracing that
mindset.
"I think it's a big thing of
how you finish." he said on
a teleconference Sunday
night. '.It's just ending on a
great note, no matter what
diversity you faced during
the season."
FSU is looking for its

fourth consecutive bowl
victory,and is making its
third appearance in; the
Champs. FSU beat Wis-
consin 42-13 in the 2008-
Champs, and beat Penn
State in 1990 when it was
known as the Blockbust-
er Bowl and playing in
Miami.
The Irish (8-4) are mak- -
ing their first trip to Or-
lando and is looking for its
second consecutive bowlI
win after beating Miami in
the Sun Bowl last season.
"Anytime you open up
the season, you always
have high expectations,"
Notre Dame coach Brian
Kelly said. "Our football
team had high expecta-
tions coming in. When
some of things don't go
yourway, you look towards
senior leaders and how
they're going to respond.


We're really proud of this
football team and the way
they've responded after a
0-2 start, similar with Jim-
bo's team."
It's. already been a busy
news cycle for Kelly the
last few weeks.
Starting quarterback
Tommy Rees was shaken
up in the Irish's season-fi-
nale loss to Stanford. And
this week, former starter
Dayne Crist asked for per-
mission to transfer after
injuries cost him his start-
ing job in the preseason.
"He knew he wanted to
continue to play, and he
was going to get that op-
portunity probably some-
where else," Kelly said of
Crist.
Kelly said Rees will start
the bowl game with An-
drew Hendrix getting time
as well.

Santo elected into Hall of Fame by veterans panel


The Associated Press

DALLAS Ron Santo always
kept rooting for the causes dear-
est to him for his Chicago
Cubs to win the World Series, for
doctors to find a cure for diabe-
tes and for him to reach :the Hall
of Fame. .
On Monday, Cooperstown fi-
nally came calling.
The barrel-chested third base-
man who clicked his heels in
victory was elected to the Hall,
overwhelmingly chosen by the
Veterans Committee nearly a
year to the day after he died hop-
ing for this very honor. .
"It's really exciting because so
many years that we had parties
over to his house in spring train-
ing saying this is the year, I'd tell
him this is the year you're going
in," said Hall of Fame teammate
Billy Williams, a member of the
voting panel.
"The one thing,, of course, is
he's not here to enjoy it, but his
family will. He long awaited this,
and we're all happy. I know I'm
happy, his family is happy, the
fans, of Chicago are happy," he
said.
Santo was a nine-time All-
Star, hit 342 home runs and won
five Gold Gloves. He was a Cubs
broadcaster for two decades, be-
loved by the home crowd for the
way he eagerly cheered for his
favorite team on the air, holler-
ing "Yes! Yes!" or "All right!"'after
good plays and groaning "Oh,
no!" or "It's bad" when things


went wrong.
Shortly after the announce-
ment, Santo's flag white with
blue pinstripes, plus his name
and No. 10 was flying from the
center pole atop the scoreboard
at Wrigley Field.
"I've got tears in my eyes writ-
ing this: congrats to the Santo
family on Ron's election to MLB
Hall of Fame. A good day to be a
Cub fan," tweeted Chicago-area
rocker Billy Corgan, frontman for
the Smashing Pumpkins.
, Santo breezed in with 15 votes
from the 16-member panel that
met at baseball's winter meet-
ings. It took 75 percent 12
votes-- to get chosen.
Santo died Dec. 3, 2010, from
complications of bladder cancer
at age 70. He had diabetes, which'
eventually cost him both legs
below the knees, and worked
tirelessly to raise millions for re-
search into the disease.
Williams was on the line when
Santo's widow, Vicki,.got the con-
gratulatory phone call.
"Ron has passed, but it was al-
ways his dream, to even have this
come to him after his passing. It
just shows you can't give up,"
she said during a conference call
from Arizona.
"Al'l he said (was) I hope I get in
in my lifetime, that's certainly a
reasonable request for anybody
who gets an honor as special as
this one. Unfortunately, it wasn't
meant to be," she said. "With his
lifetime every disappointment
that came along, he was very


disappointed."
Santo joined former Cubs
teammates Ernie. Banks, Fergu-
son Jenkins and Williams in the
Hall. That famed quartet did
most everything
at the Friendly
Confines through
the 1960s and
early 1970s except
bring a World Se-
ries to the ivy-
Santo covered ballpark.
Sno"With Ernie,
myself and Fergie. those players
he playedwith... to hear this kind
of news today that he's' inducted
in the baseball Hall of Fame is re-
ally gratifying because so many
times that we talked about it, it's'
a place he wanted to be," Wil-
liams said.
Santo will be inducted into
Cooperstown on July 22, along,
with any players elected by
members of the BaseballWriters'
Association of America on Jan. 9.
Bernie Williams joins Jack Mor-
ris, Barry Larkin and others on
that ballot.
"This is a great day for baseball
and for,Cubs fans everywhere,"
Commissioner Bud Selig said in
a statement. "Ron was a staple of
the Cubs' experience every single
day for decades."
. "I always admired Ron's cour-
age and loyal ty, and I miss him
very much," he said.
Jim Kaat was second with 10
votes, Gil Hodges and Minnie
Minoso each drew nine and Tony
Oliva got eight on the 10-person


Golden Era ballot. Buzzie Bavasi,
Ken Boyer, Charlie Finley, Allie
Reynolds and Luis Tiant each re-
ceived under three votes.
Santo never came close to elec-
tion during his 15 times on the
BBWAA ballot, peaking at 43 per-
cent- far short of the needed 75
percent in his last year of eligibil-'
ity in 1998.
Santo had gotten closer in pre-
vious elections by the Veterans
Committee. The panel has been
revamped several times in the
last decade, aimed at giinga bet-
ter look at deserving candidates.
Since his final swing in 1974,
Santo's numbers on the field
never changed. The perception
of what he meant to the game
did, though. ;
"From the discussion yester-
day, we kind of got in depth,"
Williams said. "We really, really
talked about each individual and
some things were brought out, I
imagine that wasn't brought out
last time, in so far as what he'd
done for the game of baseball,
the $60 million he raised for (ju-
venile diabetes research), all the
other stuff we knew."
"This was the case of Ron San-
to. We talked about it, we had.
good discussions on it and it,
happened," he said.
Hall of Fame third baseman
Brooks Robinson was also part of.
the panel that voted on Santo..
"I kept thinking that he would
get in then, then, then and finally
.he got in, but it's a little too late.
for him to be there," he said.


"He's just a terrific guy, he's
baseball through and through,
he's done a lot for the game of
baseball in his career, and he's
been though a lot of hardships
physically and he was just a ter-
rific player," he said. "He certain-
ly belongs in the Hall of Famre. A
long time coming. No one knows
the reason he didn't get in when
the writers were voting, but this
process we have has been the
fairest, I think."
Santo is the 15th third base-
man in the Hall, including three
from the Negro Leagues. He
was a career .277 hitter and hit
at least 30 homers every season
from 1964-67.
Santo made his debut at 20
with the Cubs in 1960 and played
his whole career with them un-
til finishing with the crosstown
White Sox in 1974.
Like Banks, Santo never got to
play in a World Series. They came
close in 1969, overtaken in the
stretch by a New York Nlets team
managed by Hodges, the former.
.Brooklyn star first baseman.
That year, Santo liked to jump
and click his heels after wins. It
was also the season a fateful pic-
ture was taken,. showing .Santo
with on a bat on his shoulder in
the' on-deck circle at Shea Sta-
dium as a black ,cat scampered
past.
"The '69 team was so very; very
close, and the joy that they had
not only as players, but to the.
dayhe passed, and they're still so
very close," Vicki Santo said.


Salaries on




the rise


The Asssociated Press

DALLAS, The .average,
major league salary in-
creased 2.7 percent' this
year to nearly $3.1 mil-
lion, the largest rise since
2008
The 913 players on Aug.
'31 rosters and disabled
lists averaged $3,095,183,
the Major League Baseball
Players Association said
Monday in its annual re-
port, up from $3,014,572
last year when the .aver-
age topped $3 million for
the first time.
The average figures
to go up next year, with
the minimum salary ris-
ing from $414,000 to
$480,000 under the new'
labor contract.
The New York Yankees
had the highest average
salary for the 13th con-
secutive season, but at
$6.54 million it declined .
for the second straight
year, down from a peak of
$7.66 million. when they
won the World Series in
2009. .
Philadelphia was sec-
ond at $6.44 million, fol-
lowed by Boston ($5.21
million), the Los Angeles
Angels'. ($4.58 million)
and the World Serie.s
champion St. Louis Car-
dinals ($4.47 million). AL.
champion Texas was 15th
at $3.01 million.
Among other playoff
teams, Detroit was ninth


at $3.96 million, Milwau-
kee llth at $3.41 million,
Arizona 22nd at $2.12 mil-
lion and Tampa Bay 28th
at $1.54 million. Com-
missioner' Bud Selig has
pointed out several times
that changes to baseball's
labor contract in recent
years have increased
competitive balance.
Kansas City was last at
$1.34 million, just behind
San Diego at $1.35 mil-
lion. Pittsburghi; which
-was last in 2010, rose to
27that $1.73 million.
Among regulars at posi-
tions, designated hitters
took over as the highest
average at $9.3 million,
followed by first basemen
at $8.9 million. With the
Yankees' Alex, Rodriguez
spending time-on the di-
abled list and failing to
play 100 games at third
base, that position's av-
erage dropped from $6.5
million to $5.2 million.
Outfielders were at $5.6
million, second base-
,men $5.2 million, start-
ing pitchers $4.9 million,
shortstops $3.9 million,
catchers $2.6 million,
and relief pitchers $1.9
million.
"The commissioner's of-,
fice, will 'not determine
its final figures for a few
weeks. Management's
numbers usually dif-
fer ,slightly because of
different methods ,of
calculation.


Reye signs with Marlins, is



Pujolsor Fielder next?
*ji e r *. *.1, n ... *, '


T hi ".::i:-i:d FPri,

DALLAS All-Star
shortstop Jose Reyes and
the Miami Marlins provid-
ed quite a warmup for the
winter meetings.
A day before the annual
swap session! officially
began, the NL batting
champion and the Marlins
reached agreement on a
$106 million, six-year deal,
a person familiar with the
negotiations told The As-
sociated Press on Sunday
night.
The person spoke on
condition of anonym-
ity because the free-agent
deal had not yet been
announced.
The 28-year-old Reyes
had spent his entire career
with the New bYork Mets.
But the Marlins courted-
him hard, even though
they already had All-Star'
shortstop Hanley Ramirez.
Reyes will join another key
free-agent acquisition.
All-Star closer Heath Bell,
when. the Marlins .move
into their new ballpark
next year.
Reyes, Albert Pujols and
Prince Fielder were the top
free agents available going
into the weekend, all with
a chance of finding a land-
ing spot for the future. Gil
Hodges,. Ron Santo and
Minnie Minoso could lock
up a legacy forever this
week.
Baseball's four-day gath-
ering starts in earnest
Monday, and speculation
about more moves was


rampant.
Will the Newv York.Yan-
kees work out a swap for
'Cubs pitcher Matt Garza?
Will some bullpen add A's
All-Star closer Andrew Bai-
ley?WMllC.J. Wlson or Mark
Buehrle strike riches?
'A couple of trades have
already been' made since
Pujols -and the St.! Louis
Cardinals won the World
Series. Huge swaps, not
yet.
Going into the weekend,
Mets general manager
Sandy, Alderson had a the-
ory on why there had been
a lack of movement.
*"It may have something
to do with the top free
agents not having moved,
Pujols and Fielder and
Jose Reyes," Alderson said
then. "It may just be the
tension not the tension,
but the dynamic between
clubs and free agents. The
free agents would like to
think that a certain mar-
ket exists. And the clubs, at
this point, are holding out
some hope that that mar-
ket doesn't exist."
"But, it can all change in
three days in Dallas," he.
said. ..
As Alderson's team dis-
covered, it can happen
even faster than that.
Surely, there were other
general managers itch-
ing to get busy. Six teams'
have hired new GMs, and
Houston will become the
seventh.
A big name who will
be available, if any team
wants to take the risk:


Free agent Albert Pujols figures to cash on his historic numbers
over the past 10 years, all with the St. Louis Cardinals.


NManny Ramirez.
Major League Baseball
announced. Sunday the
All-Star slugger had ap-"
plied to be reinstated from
the voluntary retired list
and his drug suspension
had been cut.
from 100 games to 50.
MLB and the players'
union agreed to trim the,
penalty because he sat out.
most of last season, when
he played a week for Tam-
pa Bay. He turns 40 in May
and has 555 career home
runs.
Detroit manager Jim
Leyland was among the
early. arrivals Sunday at
the 1,606-room Anatole,
a familiar baseball site.
The hotel is hosting the
meetings for the sixth
time inside its walls in
2000, more than, a half-bil-,
lion dollars iWas spent in a
hurry as Alex: Rodriguez,
Manny Ramirez and Mike
Hampton each got nine-


figure contracts.
Last year's meetings got
off to a rousing start, too,
when free-agent outfielder
JaysonWerth and theWash-
ington Nationals reached a
$126 million, seven-year
deal. The agreement came
on a Sunday, a day before
the official:, opening. In
fact, workmen were still
assembling the podium
when the Nationals and
agent Scott Boras walked
into the press room to
make the announcement.
Also in town early this
year were former Atlanta
Braves and Washington
Nationals president Stan
Kasten, and Chicago White
Sox special assistant Den-
nis Gilbert, both part of
groups lining up to bid for
the Los Angeles Dodgers in
U.S. Bankruptcy Court.
Kasten is, aligned with
former Los Angeles Lakers
star Magic Johnson and in-
vestor MarkWalter.

Dear Annie: [remember all of the letters
about how to hang the toilet paper. I, "
have a different question on the subject.
Several of my friends just prop the roll
of toilet paper on top of the cylinder
in,,tead of sticking the roller through the
hole in the paper. People then pick up
the roll with their hands and remove as
much as they need. This might not be so
bad, except that some people use the roll
more than once on the same bathroom
\isit. Also, sometimes the toilet paper
is dropped on the floor before being
re:propped.
Several times Ihave made remarks
regarding how unhealthy this habit may
be, but they just laugh. Although they are
otherwise hygienic, these people seem
to haxe more upset stomachs than our
other friends.
When I visit their houses, I carry folded
toilet paper in my purse in order to avoid




W\,est leads the club jack against sLx no-ti
How should South plan the play? DidWesi
a more effective lead?
After South opens two clubs, strong, art
and forcing, I like North to respond two s
showing five or more spades and eighi
points.

out, if declarer takes the first trick, cash
spade ace, plays a diamond to dummy's
and discards his low club on the spade kit

trick, he cashes the spade queen.
That would be the right play in sevel
trump, but not here.
After taking the first trick and unblockir
spade ace, declarer should lead a low diary
and put in dummy's eight. East takes the

South wins his return, crosses to dummy

West defeats the contract if he leads hi

'using their well-handled rolls. They
tease me for being germophobic, saying
everyone washes their hands before
leading the bathroom. But what if they
first brush the hair out of their eves or
touch their mouths before washing their

ONE WHI-O WANTS THE TISSUE
.HUNG PROPERLY

Dear Tissue: This seems less an issue
S. hygiene than one of laziness. We are
unaware of any studies that differentiate
between using a propped-up roll of toilet
paper versus one on a roller. But we can
tell yotu that the probability of having
the roll fall on the floor lor in the toilet)
Stakes it automatically less sanitary than
using the roller.Andbytheway, itis
highly unlikely that all those who use the
bathroom wash their hands with soap
and water before leaving.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) Today's good as-
pects could offer you more
ways than usual to further
your ambitious interests.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19)- A positive attitude re-
garding your involvements
with others will work won-
ders for you. With the right
mindset, you'll be a bit
bolder and will reach high-
er than usual.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19).- By consistently en-
visioning positive results
for all your .undertakings,
there's a good chance your
hopes will be fultfilled.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) ,- Some important
news might be coming
your way. After studying it
closely, you're likely to dis-
cover that it's much bigger
and far more valuable than
.you e\er anticipated.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
- Something good could
happen to you that would
immediately ease a finan-
cial burden. A friend is
likely to be the one who
brings this about.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
- Even if things have been.,
a bit unimpressive for you
lately, matters could sud-
denly, totally change.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
- Should your intuition
start telling you that some-
thing good is about to
bloom, don't treat it lightly.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
- In case you haven't real-
ized it yet. you'll soon have.
proof just how valuable
your friends are.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -
Obstacles that have preli-
ously been impeding your
progress could suddenly '
be replaced with bridges.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
- It won't be b- accident
that your hopes and plans
begin working g out far more
successfully than the- did
previously. It'll be because
your thinking is now much
more practical.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
- Someone born under the
sign of Sagittarius could
offer you some advice that
should turn out to be ex-
tremely valuable.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)
- The genuine show of car-
ing you have for others will
evoke a warmer response
from someone who's been
frosty toward you.

Penske racing splits with Kurt Busch


The Associated Press
CHARLOTTE, N.C. Kurt
Busch and Penske Racing parted
ways Monday after six bumpy
seasons, a' split that clouds the
former champion's future in NAS-
CAR as he embarks on a personal
journey to reclaim his passion for
racing.
Both the team and driver said
ending the relationship was a
"mutual agreement," but most
believe Busch was fired in the fall-
out of yet another embarrassing
incident. A fan caught Busch on
video verbally abusing an ESPN
reporter during last month's sea-
son finale, and Busch was fined
$50,000 by NASCAR after the clip

forward from here."
Busch admitted last week dur-
ing activities surrounding the
season-ending awards ceremony
that he began seeing a sports
psychologist about two months
ago to address what he called
"personal issues."
Known for both his intensity
and notorious meltdowns during
in-race communications with his
race team, die 2011 season was
particularly brutal for Busch.
Although he won two races and
made the Chase for the Sprint
Cup championship, he had an
epic tantrum over his in-car ra-,
dio at Richmond in May that set
the tone for the season.'
