2 die in


weekend


crashes

By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.comrn
Two Columbia County resi-
dents were killed, and a Branford
woman seriously injured, in sep-
arate wrecks over the weekend
on area roadways.
Sunday night a pedestrian
along U.S. Highway 441, William
Anthony Price, 44, of Lake City,
was struck and killed by a vehi-
cle.
The accident occurred
around 7:55 p.m. Sunday on
U.S. Highway 441 north of
Interstate 10 when Price was
struck by a vehicle driven by
Brittany Elizabeth Law of Lake
City. Law, 21, was not injured in
the crash.
According to Florida Highway
Patrol reports, Law was trav-
eling north on 441 in a 1999
Chevrolet Tracker. Price was
walking south on the roadway's
east shoulder, toward traffic,
on or around the white painted
line.
Law did not see Price and her
vehicle struck-him.
Charges are pending comple-
tion of an FHP investigation,
reports said.
Saturday morning a Lake
City man was killed and the pas-
senger in his vehicle sustained
serious injuries after a head-on
collision in Dixie County.
Michael Joyner, 56, of Lake
City was killed. His passenger,
Donna Tucker, 49, of Branford,
was taken to an area hospital
with serious injuries.
The driver of the other vehi-
cle, Brandon Blanchard, 21, of
Bell, suffered minor injuries
and was also taken to a local
hospital.
The wreck occurred around 7
a.m. Saturday on State Road 349
in Dixie County, about three-
tenths of a mile south of NE
753rd Avenue.
FHP reports said Blanchard
was traveling north on State
Road 349 in a 2006 Chevrolet
C1500 pickup truck. Joyner and
Tucker were traveling in a 1998
Dodge D-150 pickup truck with
a boat and trailer in tow, head-
ing south.
Reports said Blanchard's
vehicle crossed the center line
into the path of Joyner's vehicle
which led to a head-on collision
in the southbound lane.
After the collision, Tucker
was thrown from the vehicle
onto the roadway's grass shoul-
der and Joyner was trapped in
the truck as it became fully
engulfed in flames.
Blanchard .and Tucker
were taken to Shands at the
University of Florida for medi-
cal treatment.
Joyner was pronounced dead
at the scene by Dixie County
Fire-Rescue personnel.
Charges are pending comple-
tion of the FHP crash investiga-
tion.
No one in either vehicle was
wearing a seat belt, reports
.said.


Water group focuses first



on organizational issues


By GORDON JACKSON
gjackson@lakecityreporter. corn
Representatives from 14 counties and
cities met formally for the first time
Monday to organize an interlocal group
that will address concerns about exces-
sive water use that may be jeopardizing
springs and rivers in the region.
While many of the more than 100
people in the audience at the Columbia
County School Board Administrative
Complex in Lake City were ready to dis-


cuss the issues and possible solutions,
they quickly learned those discussions
weren't going to happen at the meeting.
Before the group can discuss the issues
and possible solutions, members were
told they had more immediate consider-
ations. They had to choose a name for the
organization, funding, selecting officers,
hiring staff, autonomy of board members,
drafting a mission statement and bylaws,

More claims of unfair


treatment at City Hall


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter. corn
A renewed call for the re*
ignation of Lake City Police
Department Chief Argatha
Gilmore was made at the city
council meeting. Monday night
when a dozen or more citizens,
calling themselves "supporters
of Jake Hill," questioned recent
activities within the Lake City
police department. Monday's
meeting lasted about 20 min-
utes.
During a previous city
council meeting this month,
Councilman Jake Hill com-
plained that there appeared to
be a discrepancy in the way
black officers at the depart-
ment were disciplined com-
pared to white officers.
Although after the earlier
meeting he said he would cast
.a vote in favor of Gilmore's


being terminated, he said he
would not make a motion to
terminate her.
During Monday night's
council meeting two residents
addressed council about recent
happenings within the Lake
City Police Department and its
officers.
At the beginning of the
meeting, Mayor Stephen Witt
informed the audience that
city council members would
not be making any statements
regarding personnel issues
because of pending litigation.
Myron Carter and for-
mer Lake City Police officer
Rudolph Davis addressed
council members with ques-
tions about leadership in the
police department and accusa-
tions of wrongdoing by white
officers who faced little or no
discipline for their actions, in
comparison with black offi-


cers who were terminated. '
Carter asked how was it
possible that the city manager
rather than the police chief
suspended officers and he
also questioned when addi-
tional information would be
released about a wreck involv-
ing a police officer where a
woman was seriously injured.
He also requested findings
from a incident at the Cedar
Park Apartment Complex
where several people, includ-
ing teens, were arrested.
Following Carter's remarks
Davis addressed the council,
reading off a list of allegations
of misconduct by white offi-
cers. Davis, who was terminat-
ed by Gilmore, has a pending
lawsuit in federal court, where
he said he was unjustly fired
because of discrimination and

Early


voting


off to


quiet


start

By GORDON JACKSON
gackson@lakecityreporter.com
Early voting for the Florida
Republican Primary hasn't exactly
kept poll workers busy in Columbia
Cofinty since it began on Saturday.
"Ift's been really slow," Supervisor
of Elections Liz
Horne said. "This
is very disappoint-
ing that we haven't
had a better turn-
out, so far."
It's unclear if
the low turnout
by registered
Republicans is Horne
because they are
uninspired by the slate. of candidates
or undecided about who to support.
Most voters traditionally wait until
the day of the primary election to
cast their votes.
But Horne said the lackluster
early voter turnout may only be
temporary. It's possible they are
waiting for Rick Santorum to cam-
paign in Lake City on Thursday. He
will speak and greet supporters at.

most prominent national public.fig-

memory was Vice President Dick
Cheney when he made a campaign'
speech at the Columbia County
Fairgrounds in 2004, she said.
"I hope it will spur people a little
bit," Horne said. "I think people will
turn out. I'm looking forward, to it.".

Romney pressing
reset after loss
ORMOND BEACH -
Mitt Romney is pressing
reset.
After a crushing loss to
Newt Gingrich in South
Carolina, the former
Massachusetts governor
made clear Sunday that he
plans to attack his chief
rival's character, release
his tax returns this week
and try to right a cam-
paign he acknowledged
had been knocked off
kilter.
"It was not a great week
for me," Romney said dur-
ing an interview on "Fox
News Sunday."
And at a rally here, his
first event in Florida after
the loss, Romney assailed
the former speaker's lead-
ership abilities. 'We're not
choosing a talk show host,
alright?" he said. "We're
choosing a leader."
Romney now turns to
Florida at what is possibly
the most critical moment
of his campaign, after two
weeks of sustained attacks
from his opponents and
a series of self-inflicted
errors that erased any
notion that he would be
able to lock up the nomina-
tion quickly by winning
this state's Jan. 31 primary.

Civil Rights Hall of
Famers inducted
TALLAHASSEE -
A pioneering teacher, a
Baptist preacher and a
U.S. congressman have
been named inaugural
inductees of Florida's new
Civil Rights Hall of Fame.
Gov. Rick Scott named
Mary McLeod Bethune,
the Rev. C.K. Steele and
Claude Pepper to the hall
on Monday. They will be
honored with plaques to
hang on a wall of honor in
the Capitol rotunda.
Bethune established
the school now known
as Bethune-Cookman

a boycott that ended seg-
regation on Tallahassee
city buses. Pepper was
best known as the nation's
foremost champion of the
elderly.
The Florida Civil Rights
Hall of Fame honors indi-
viduals who were born
in Florida or adopted the
state as their home.

FAMU dismisses
charged students
TALLAHASSEE The
four students charged last
week with hazing pledges
of a Florida A&M march-
ing band club known as
the Clones have been dis-
missed from the university.
The move was
announced Monday during
a FAMU board of trustees
meeting. The students will
have a chance to appeal
their dismissal before a
student judicial committee.
The four band members
face misdemeanor haz-
ing charges after reports
that other students were
punched and paddled
during an initiation. Last
week's arrests are the lat-
est in a scandal'that has
rocked the university and
its famed Marching 100
band.


The four students arrest-
ed were: Denise Bailey, ,
22; Brandon Benson,
23; Hakeem Birch, 21
and Anthony Mingo, 22.
According to a police
report, all denied that haz-
ing occurred or said they
didn't know about it.

Chimp, 73, has

back surgery
LOXAHATCHEE -
Veterinarians recently
operated on a 73-year-
old Florida chimpanzee
believed to be the oldest of
its kind in captivity.
Medical staff at
Lion Country Safari in
Loxahatchee operated on
Little Mama to treat lower
back wounds and remove
damaged teeth.
The two-hour procedure
was a rare opportunity to
perform exams like x-rays
and sonograms.
Famed anthropolo-
gist Jane Goodall met
Little Mama in 1972. The
chimp is believed to have
performed with the Ice
Capades in the 1940s.
Veterinarians say Little
Mama did very well under
anesthesia despite her
advanced age. She took
antibiotics for two weeks
and has healed well.

Romney looks to hit back at Gingrich in Florida


By STEVE PEOPLES
Associated Press

TAMPA Rocked in South Carolina
over the weekend, an increasingly
aggressive Mitt Romney looked to
take the fight to Newt Gingrich in
debate Monday night as the-combative
Republican presidential contest shifted
farther south to Florida.
The fireworks began before they
walked onto the debate stage.
Romney began running an ad that
said Gingrich "cashed in" with home-
loan giant Freddie Mac while Floridians
were being crushed in the housing
crisis.
Gingrich mocked Romney as some-
one campaigning on openness "who
has released none of his business
records."
Gingrich, the former House speaker,
has suddenly seized the nomination
momentum, following weak finishes in


Iowa and New Hampshire with the solid
victory over Romney Saturday in South
Carolina. And recent Florida polls sug-
gest he may have erased Romney's
lead here.
While the fight has largely become
a two-man contest, they will share the
stage with former Pennsylvania Sen.
Rick Santorum and Texas Rep. Ron
Paul.
The GOP rivals were clashing at
the University of Southern Florida
Monday night and will meet again
Thursday night in the run-up to the
Florida primary on Tuesday, Jan. 31.
The winner of the nomination will face
Democratic President Barack Obama
in November.
. Before the Tampa debate started,
Romney went after Gingrich in person
and on the Florida airwaves.
At a campaign stop, Romney likened
Gingrich to a pinball machine and
suggested the former House speaker


engaged in "potentially wrongful activ-
ity" in his consulting work over the
past decade.
Romney then released his first nega-
tive ad of the campaign.
"While Florida families lost every-
thing in the housing crisis, Newt
Gingrich cashed in," the TV ad says,
noting that the former speaker made
more than $1.6 million working for
Freddie Mac. "Gingrich resigned from
Congress in disgrace and then cashed
in as a D.C. insider."
Gingrich never registered as a lob-
byist, but said he was a consultant
for Freddie Mac, the federally backed
mortgage company that played a sig-
nificant role in the housing crisis.
It remains to be seen if Romney can
effectively use his newly aggressive
stance on the debate stage, a forum
in which Gingrich has excelled so
far. Underfunded and overmatched by
Romney's massive ground game across


the country, Gingrich has relied upon
strong debate performances to build
support.
It appears Romney has brought in
outside help to improve his debate
technique.
Veteran debate coach Brett O'Donnell
was spotted at a Romney campaign
stop on Monday. He previously advised
President George W. Bush and GOP
nominee John McCain and was a senior
adviser and speech writer for Michele
Bachmann's abbreviated campaign.
Gingrich, meanwhile, is showing no
signs of backing down.
During an appearance on ABC's
"Good Morning America," he referred
to Romney as "somebody who has
released none of his business records,
who has decided to make a stand on
transparency without being transpar-
ent." After initially balking, Romney
is set to release personal tax records
today.


WATER: Working group holds organizational meeting, sets groundrules
Continued From Page 1A


Law requirements, open
meetings laws, and how
long the organization will
exist.
Columbia County
Attorney Marlin Feagle
said there were a num-
ber of ways the group can
organize. He recommend-
ed an interlocal agreement
that is approved by the
municipality of each rep-
resentative in the group.
Feagle recommend-
ed all meetings be pub-
lic, with the same legal
requirements for adver-
tising as any government
body. The Sunshine Law
will apply to anyone serv-
ing on the group, even
if they are from different
cities and counties.
"Once you serve on the
same board, you have to
follow the rules," he said.
Later in the meeting,
Feagle said it would take
about a week to draft a
."boiler plate" set, of. pro-
posed bylaws that he will
send to every representa-
tive in the group. The pro-
posed bylaws are simply
a starting point for the
group to discuss the rules
and regulations that will
govern the organization.
The working group
came about after a meet-
ing between elected.
county officials from the
Columbia, Hamilton and
Suwannee counties on
Nov. 29 in Lake City. At,
the meeting, they dis-
cussed the problem and
possible legal action to
block'a permit issued by
the St. Johns River Water
Management District
allowing Jacksonville
Electric Authority to
pump as much as 155 mil-
lion gallons a day from the
Floridan Aquifer.
But they decided not to
pursue a lawsuit after a


Jacksonville environmen-
tal lawyer said they had
no legal standing to chal-
lenge the permit because
there was no science
available to determine the
cause of falling water lev-
els in the region.
Elected officials from
each county agreed to
form a working group to
get answers that could
help them prove exces-
sive pumping of water
from the aquifer is caus-
ing record-low levels in
springs, creeks and rivers
throughout the region.
Columbia County com-
missioner Ron Williams
said everyone at the meet-
ing has similar concerns
about water issues.
"We have one objec-
tive, .to save our water,"
he said. "Our water is the
most important resource
we have."
Williams urged rep-
resentatives, to convince
elected officials through-
out the region to support
the group both philo-
sophically and financially.
Columbia County com-
missioners have already
approved $250,000 in seed
money to establish the
group.
"We've got a water war
going," he said. "We're
going to stay focused."
Lafayette County
Commission member Jack
Byrd said the water issue
is a serious concern.
"Someway or another,
we're going to have to
change," he said. "I'm
here to try to preserve
everything for our chil-
dren and grandchildren

Romney, Ron Paul and John
Huntsman as the remaining

nomination.
Members of the North

arranged for Santorum to visit
Lake City. He will leave imme-
diately from Lake City for a
presidential candidate debate
at the University of North
Florida in Jacksonville. His
staff hasn't announced what
Santorum will discuss during
his appearance in Lake City.
Horne said the only com-
plaint she has heard about
Santorum's visit is when hell

want to hear him speak will
not be able to leave work,
she said.
"Some people are complain-
ing about the lime, but he had
no other option," Horne said.

"Right now, you are only
talking about representa-
tives from government
bodies," he said.
Columbia County man-
ager Dale Williams said
the size of the group is
not limited and other
local governments who
want a representative on
the group are welcome
to join. Once officers are
elected and the mission
statement and bylaws are
approved, the group will
decide how environmental
groups and concerned cit-
izens will participate. But
he assured them they will
have an important role.

agreed, at least for the time
being, to name the orga-

OPINION


A flight

from

Romney,

not to

Gingrich

Mitt Romney's
campaign for
the Republican
presidential nom-
ination suffered
its first real setback, aresound-
ing loss to Newt Gingrich in
Saturday's South Carolina pri-
mary.
The former House speaker's
first victory is the latest mani-
festation qf the trepidation GOP
conservatives and Tea Party
activists have for the former
Massachusetts governor. Still,
Republican voters in South
Carolina were not flocking to
Mr. Gingrich; they were running
from Mr. Romney, who carried a
double-digit lead a week ago and
wound up losing by more than.
12 points.
Much as the Romney cam-
paign may try to spin the loss as
a one-off, Mr. Gingrich has the
wind at his back for now. But
both candidates have much work
to do if they intend to inspire
and capture the enthusiasm of
a volatile and scorned GOP vot-
ing base. Voters appear not to
be thrilled about either of the
choices.
Attacks by Mr. Gingrich
worked, especially as Mr.
Romney stumbled in debates
when questions were raised
about releasing his tax returns.
(Mr. Romney said.Sunday that
he would release his 2010 return
this week.) The Gingrich cam-
paign has found a compelling
weapon, painting Mr. Romney as
an unethical capitalist, a moder-
ate, who's too elite and out of
touch with ordinary Americans.
Republicans in Florida, whose
voters will be counted Jan. 31,
can expect to see and hear more
of the same.
Although Rick Santorum and
Ron Paul have given no indication
of quitting, the GOP nomination
contest now is a two-man race,
with many primary voters distrust-
ing one option and disliking the
other. Both men face the challenge
of gaining credibility in the eyes of
conservatives and, looking beyond
the nomination battle, the general
electorate. On to Florida.

If Michelle Obama is


angry she has right to be


I read Jodi Kantor's new
book, 'The Obamas."
First lady Michelle
Obama is described as
a strong-willed, highly
intelligent spouse who works
behind the scenes to protect the
president's agenda. It shows a
loving mother trying to ensure
that her two daughters remain
as normal as possible while
living in Washington's harsh
spotlight
I put down the book with
higher regard for Michelle
Obama and a better understand-
ing of the family's struggles as
the first African-Americans to
occupy the White House.
Predictably, right-wing talk,
show hosts immediately started
using'the book as an excuse to
return to a poisonous theme:
Michelle Obama is "an angry
black woman." '
"I see Michelle Obama's mad
while saying she's not," Rush
Limbaugh said.
Radio host and tea party activ-
ist David Webb, who is black,
told The Hill that "Michelle
Obama comes from a very
angry, black nationalist back-
ground."
He further suggested that the
first lady, who rose from mod-
est means with the benefit of
America's enormoust opportuni-
ties," should mind her words,
that in her role as first lady,
"it's un-American" for Michelle
Obama to bring up racial issues
at all.
'The majority,of Americans
do not like that approach,
this underhand way of doing
things," Webb said.
The shocking surprise is that
instead of holding her tongue,
as she has done until now,
the first lady is striking back.
During a recent interview with
Gayle King of CBS News about
Kantor's book, Michelle Obama
attacked the right wing's por-
trayal of her: 'That's been an
image people have tried to paint
of me since the day Barack
announced, that I'm some kind


Bill Maxwell
maxwell@sptimes.com
of angry black woman. ... There
will always be people who don't
like me."
Most conservatives, such as
Limbaugh and Webb, are out-
raged that the first lady has the
gall to stand up for herself and
confront race so forthrightly,
to use the words "angry black
woman." Many Democrats
are afraid the first lady's new
approach will give Republicans
yet another blunt weapon to use
as the presidential campaign
heats up.
Here is my take. The first
lady and the president have
been models of civility and
restraint in dealing with matters
of race. They are loath to play.
the so-called race card. In fact,
the Obamas always have been
forced into racial confrontations.
This reticence, although
admirable in some ways, dis-
tresses many blacks who want
the Obamas to be more open
and forceful. They believe
the Obamas helped to create
the early pipe dream that the
United States finally will enter
a post-racial era. The reality, of
course, is that race never went
anywhere.
If the first lady is an angry
black woman, she has every
right to be. Conservative white
and black Americans are hypo-
crites if they say otherwise.
They need to remember that
Michelle Obama was born on
Chicago's South Side in 1964,
the year the Rev. Martin Luther
King Jr. won the Nobel Peace
Prize. King won the prize as
a fighter for civil and human
rights, not in the Soviet Union,
not in China or Iran, but in


the United States the land of
the free, the world's model of
democracy and justice. During
that same year, Congress
passed the Civil Rights Act that
prohibits discrimination in pub-
lic accommodations. The first
lady grew up knowing this his-
tory, coming of age in a world
that had not fully shed the racial
injustice and brutality King had
battled.
And change was slow to come
as Michelle Obama matured.
She and her brother knew
that their father, a carpenter,
was denied union membership
and shut out of lucrative con-
struction jobs because he was
black. Although intellectually
gifted in high school, Michelle
Obama listened to an adviser
discourage her from applying
to Princeton University. She
graduated from Princeton with
honors. When she applied
to Harvard Law School, race
became an issue again when
counselors told her she would
never make it at the premier
school. She excelled at Harvard.
We all are aware of the right
wing's relentless and not-so-
subtle effort to discredit the
first African-American first
lady. National Review maga-
zine described her as "Mrs.
Grievance." Her young daugh-
ters, Malia and Sasha, have
been ridiculed as being unin-
telligent. The family has been
caricatured as monkeys. The
first lady has been referred to
as "Obama's baby mama," and
her husband has been called
the "food stamp president," sug-
gestive of race.
Michelle Obama feels the
hurt of race, not to mention gen-
der, every day. It is an unavoid-
able part of her life. If she is an
angry black woman, she earned
it the hard way right here in the
United States of America.

To the Pentagon,
they're "equip-
ment" But to the
U.S. troops who
have served with
the military's working dogs,
they are the unsung heroes of
the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
More than 600 U.S. war
dogs have served in those
combat zones, commonly in
multiple tours, and, though
precise figures are closely
held by the military, at least
three dozen have been seri-
ously injured or killed. At
least 30 have suffered what
some call canine post-trau-
matic stress disorder.
Most of the war dogs serve
as detectors of homemade
bombs, and they are esti-
mated to have found thou-
sands of pounds of the deadly
explosives, which have been
responsible for the bulk of

combat casualties. A back-of-
the-envelope estimate used
by war-dog handlers is that
each canine saves about 150
lives during its combat ser-
vice.
Even so, the Pentagon is
adamant that the dogs are
forbidden from receiving any
official medal or commenda-
tion for their service and sac-
rifice because they are "non-
human" and "equipment."
Ron Aiello, a former


Vietnam War dog handler
and head of the U.S. War
Dogs Association, has been
lobbying for eight years to
persuade the military to give
formal recognition to the
dogs by, for example, creat-
ing a medal specifically for
them. Current and former
U.S. dog handlers have given
their wholehearted support.
But the Peniagon says it is
bound by law to reserve any
such honors for people.
A glint of hope emerged
this past week, when Sen.
Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn.,
promised to introduce a mea-
sure that would provide legal
permission for the U.S. mili-
tary to honor K-9s judged to
be especially courageous or
meritorious, as well as with
those killed in action.

Listen to

what Paula

Deen isn't

saying

So Paula Deen has
Type 2 diabetes.
You know that,
don't you? It has been
repeated on every
newscast and in every daily
newspaper in the English-speak-
ing world. Paula Deen-the
queen of Southern cooking
who deep-fries cheesecake and
flavors her quiche with a pound
of bacon, the stories say-has
Type 2 diabetes.
I know what they're doing.
They're implying that, see there,
if you cook the way Paula Deen
cooks, you're going to come
down with diabetes and no tell-
ing what else. You just can't put a
pound of butter in a cake, eat it all
and expect to win points at your
next Weight Watchers meeting.
But couldn't you have a very
small piece of it?
"I've always said, 'Practice
moderation, y'all," Paula Deen
says in her finest Savannah
voice.
Paula Deen-who's being
treated like a serial killer-
knows you can't eat high-calorie,
high-fat food every meal without
suffering the consequences.
Many Southerners know that
and live accordingly.
I say many Southerners
because there are folks down
here who. think that milk gravy
is a vegetable and eating healthy
means nibbling the lettuce that
comes with their triple-decker,
double-cheese, super-sized
hamburger. Its their rear ends
that show up on TV every time
there's a story on obesity.
But, health issues aside, you'll
have to admit that the South
turns out better food. Take fried
foods, for example. I don't know
if it was Native Americans or
African Americanrs or Caucasian
Americans, but somebody in
the South discovered that cer-
tain foods are not good unless
they're fried.
Okra is one of them. I believe
that God-who obviously *
loves the South-made okra
to be rolled in cornmeal and
fried until it's almost burnt He
wouldn't eat it any other way.
And just because we eat a little
fried okra-remember, "Practice,
moderation, y'all"-doesn't mean
we're going to come down with
diabetes tomorrow. We just need
to temper our enthusiasm for
frying by consuming leafy, green
vegetables and fresh fruits and
grains and drinking pomegranate
juice, if we can get it down. You
know the spiel-you hear it and
read it every day.
Fact is, we are bombarded
with stuff about food: the recipes,
the cookoffs, the Iron Chefs.
Americans, not just Southerners,
are obsessed with food. And we
can't help it if most of the obses-
sign and good things come from
the South. Success breeds suc-
cess, and Southerners do a lot of
breeding.
So, back to Paula Deen, who
has Type 2 diabetes. Look, I'm
not making light that Miss Paula
is now diabetic. Two of my first
cousins died from complications
of diabetes. My sister, Elaine,
has been a diabetic for 50 years,
since she was 12.
But my sister is a wonderful
Southern cook who knows the
importance of a good diet And
when she makes a batch of her
delectable cinnamon rolls, she
eats one, not four.
She knows Paula Deen is
right "Practice moderation,
y'all."

Giants winin OT


Late fumble sets
up NewYork for
Super Bowl berth.
By JANIE McCAULEY
Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO In a
season of fabulous finishes,
Eli Manning and the Giants
had another one in them.
And now New York is
headed toward the ending
that matters most: another
trip to the Super Bowl.
Five plays after the 49ers'
Kyle Williams fumbled
a punt, Lawrence Tynes
kicked a 31-yard field goal
in overtime, sending the
Giants to the Super Bowl
with a 20-17 victory over
San Francisco in the NFC
championship game on
Sunday.
"Guys never quit, never
ever have any doubts,"
Manning said. "They keep
believing and fighting until
the very end no matter
what the circumstances are.
I think everybody knew we
were going to get a break,
we were going to get a
chance to win this game."


In another tight contest
in this decades-old post-
season rivalry, both
defenses made key, stops
before New York capital-
ized on a rare mistake in
San Francisco's resurgent
season. Williams' blunder
put the Giants in perfect
position for another sensa-
tional finish in a season full
of them.
The first three posses-
sions in overtime ended
in punts before Williams
fumbled. The Giants won it
moments later and silenced
- for good this time the
towel-waving, poncho-wear-
ing sellout crowd at cold,
rainy Candlestick Park.
"It was one of those situ-
ations where I tried to turn
it upfield and it just didn't
work out," Williams said.
Devin Thomas put the
Giants in position by recov-
ering his second fumble
of the game after Jacquian
Williams stripped the ball
from fill-in return man Kyle
Williams, who also fumbled
earlier to set up a New York
touchdown.
"It's my second NFC
championship game, my


second game-winner,"
Tynes said of his kick 7:54
into overtime. "It's amaz-
ing. I had dreams about this
last night."
' Manning went 32 of
58 for 316 yards and two
touchdowns and overcame
six sacks in his record
fifth road playoff win, New
York's fifth in a row overall.
Manning orchestrated five
fourth-quarter wins during
the regular season.
He threw a go-ahead
17-yard touchdown pass to
Mario Manningham with
8:34 remaining after Kyle
Williams fumbled for the-
first time.
The Giants challenged
that the ball touched
Williams' right knee and
Thomas recovered with
11:06 left and coach Tom
Coughlin won, giving the
Giants the ball back at the
29.
"That was a tremendous
football game for those that
really enjoy football at it's
very basic element," said
Coughlin, who matched for-
mer Cowboys coach Tom
Landry for most road play-
off wins with seven.


Paterno loses fight with cancer


By GENARO C. ARMAS
Associated Press
STATE COLLEGE, Pa.
- Other than family, foot-
ball was everything to Joe
Paterno. Itwas his lifeblood..
It kept him pumped.
Life could not be the
same without it.
Paterno, a sainted figure
at Penn State for almost half
a century but scarred forev-


H d er by the
scandal
involving
Shis one-
time heir
appar-
ment, died
Paterno Sundayat
age 85.
His death came just 65
days after his son Scott said
his father had been diag-
nosed with lung cancer.


The winningest coach
'in major college football
with 409 victories, Paterno
roamed the Penn State
sidelines for 46 seasons, his
thick-rimmed glasses jet-
black sneakers as familiar
as the Nittany Lions' blue
and white uniforms.
His devotion to what he
called "Success with Honor"
made Paterno's fall all the
more startling.


Brady struggles,,
but New England
scores 23-20 win.
By BARRY WILNER
associated Press

FOXBOROUGH, Mass.
- Imagine this: The New
England Patriots i'ake yet
another Super Bowl, and
Tom Brady is not the main
reason.
By his own assessment,
Brady wasn't v.ery good&
in the Patriots' 23-20 AFC-
championship game vic-
'tory over the Baltimore
Ravens on Sunday. *
Vintage Brady doesn't
need much assistance
in such settings, but he
got plenty of it from the
Patriots' much-maligned
defense, and from Ravens
kicker Billy Cundiff shank-
ing a 32-yard field goal with
11 seconds remaining.
Oh, yeah, Brady's 1-yard
touchdown dive in which
he' soared over the Ravens'
touted, defensive line, pro-
vided the winning points,
with 11:29 remaining.
"In some ways, you
always beat yourself up,"
Brady said after throw-
ing for 239 yards, with
two interceptions and, for
the first time in 36 games,
no TD passes. "I've been
doing this for quite a while.


I'm glad we won, I'm glad
we're moving on. Hopefully
I can go out there and do
better in a few weeks."
That would be on Feb.
5 in Indianapolis in a
rematch of the 2008 Super
Bowlt- Brady and coach
Bill Belichick's only loss
in the big game after three
.wins!: a 17-14 shocker at
the hands of the New York
Giants "when the Patriots
were going for a perfect
season.
The Patriots ,probably
wouldn't have won their
10th straight game if not
for their defense's new-
found stinginess. New
England (15-3) ranked
31st in defense this sea-
son, but played just as well
as Baltimore's highly rated
unit for most of Sunday.
-The Patriots shut. down
Ray Rice, the league's
total yardage leader, who
was limited to 78 yards.
Brandon Spikes made a
fourth-quarterinterception
of Joe Flacco, who played
well before that and threw
for two touchdowns.
It's most critical play
came from backup corner-
back Sterling Moore, who
stripped Lee Evans of the
ball on what could have
been a winning TD catch
in the dying moments.
Cundiff then botched
his kick.

Russia's Ekaterina Makarova returns to Serena Williams during their fourth round match at
the Australian Open tennis championship in Melbourne, Australia, on Monday.



Serena Williams joins


list of ousted Americans


By DENNIS PASSA
Associated Press

MELBOURNE, Australia
- Novak Djokovic briefly
looked vulnerable. Serena
Williams just'looked lost.
Djokovic, the defend-
ing champion, dropped six
straight games to Lleyton
Hewitt in losing his first set
at the Australian Open but
kept his composure and
won 6-1, 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 late
Monday night, ensuring all
of the top five men reached
the quarterfinals.
"It's obviously the first
match that I've been tested,"
the top-seeded Djokovic
said. "It was against the
player that I expected to be
tested."
Numbers told the story
of Williams' stunning
6-2, 6-3 fourth-round loss
to Russia's Ekaterina
Makarova: seven double-
faults, including four in one
game; 37 unforced errors,
and a first-serve percent-
age of just over 50 percent
had her convinced "maybe
I should have started
serving lefty."
Williams has played
43 singles matches at
Melbourne Park since she
won the first of her five
Australian Open titles in
2003, and Monday's loss
was just her third. She's
54-7 since playing, here for

the first time in 1998, and
she hasn't gone out this
early since 2006.
"I'm not physically 100
percent, so I can't be so
angry at myself, even
though I'm very unhappy,"
said Williams, who played
on a still-sore left ankle. "I
know that I can play a hun-
dred times better than I did
this whole tournament."
Without Williams, who
injured her left ankle in
Brisbane two weeks ago,
the only major winners
still in contention were
Maria Sharapova, defend-
ing champion Kim Clijsters
and. Wimbledon winner
Petra Kvitova.
Sharapova earned the'
right to play Makarova in
the quarterfinals when
she beat Sabine Lisicki of
Germany 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 in
a night match. The 2008
champion blew a 3-0 lead
in the opening set, needed
three set points to win the"-
second and advanced on'
her second match point
despite making 47 unforced
errors and eight double-
faults.
"A lot of ups and downs
today fortunately I fin-
ished on a. high note,"
she said. "Even though I
didn't play my best tennis
I fought to the end and
sometimes that's what gets
you through."

Top-seeded Caroline
SWozniacki, still in search of
her first Grand Slam title,
was to play Clijsters in the
quarterfinals on Tuesday.
Kvitova had some trouble-
late before beating former
top-ranked Ana Ivanovic
6-2, 7-6 (2) Monday and will
next play Sara Errani of
Italy, who beat 2008 semi-
finalist Zheng Jie 6-2, 6-1.
In the final night match,
Djokovic reached the
quarterfinals for the fifth
straight year with the
win over Hewitt, ending
Australia's participation in
the singles draws.
The loss for former U.S.
Open and Wimbledon
champion Hewitt ended his
16th Australian Open.
Earlier, two-time run-
ner-up Andy Murray was
leading 6-1, 6-1, 1-0 when
Mikhail Kukushkin retired
from their fourth-round
match with a hip injury.
Murray will next play
Kei Nishikori, who had a
2-6, 6-2, 6-1, 3-6, 6-3 win over
sixth-seeded Jo-Wilfried
Tsonga, the 2008 finalist
The 22-year-old Nishikori
became the first Japanese
man in the last eight at
the Australian Open in 80
years, and only the second
man from his country to
reach a Grand Slam quar-
terfinal since the. Open era
started in 1968.

DEAR ABBY


Dad's patient instruction gave

teen confidence behind wheel


DEAR ABBY: Like "I'd
Rather Walk in Houston"
(Nov. 12), I learned to
drive as a high school
senior. My father taught
me in a local park. As I
learned to operate the
car, I gained confidence,
but I was still not ready
for street traffic. He said I
was a "slow learner," but
didn't force me onto the
streets. After several more
rounds in the park, I was
able to face traffic. Yes,
I was uneasy, but having
Dad in the passenger seat
boosted my confidence.
I drove with supervision
for several months to get
accustomed to the controls
and learn to avoid other
cars and curbs.
My solo drive was prom
night By the time I arrived
at my date's home I felt as if
I had showered in my tux!
After the dance, miraculous-
ly, I felt relaxed and com-
fortable behind the wheel.
My supervised driving
was a big help. Talking
about safe driving and
seeing videos may not
have the same effect
as driving with a critic
in the passenger seat -
DRIVING SINCE '59 IN
CLARKSVILLE, TENN.
DEAR DRIVING:
Everyone and I mean
EVERYONE seems to
have an anecdote about
their early driving experi-
ences. My newspaper read-
ers' comments:
DEAR ABBY: I also
struggled with an unbear-
able fear of driving. I took
cabs and walked, even
though I had a car and a



ARIES (March 21-April
19): A disciplined approach
to what needs to be done
will enhance your reputa-
tion. The people who gravi-
tate toward you will have
something to contribtite
that will help you reach
your goals. Push hard and
success will come your
way. ****
TAURUS (April 20-May
20): Not everyone will be
honest with you, but if you
listen carefully, you Will be
able to weed out who is on
your side and who isn't.
Remain moderate in all
that you do or say and you
will come out on top. **
GEMINI (May 21-June
20): Put greater enthusi-
asm into whatever you do
and you .will draw atten-
tion. Your ability to utilize
your imaginative original-
ity, as well as your ability
to bring logic and reason
to whatever you do, will
be most impressive today.

CANCER (June 21-July
22): Put love first and don't
allow uncertainty to creep
in, causing insecurity and
doubt about what you have
worked so hard to achieve.
Self-doubt will be your
enemy, so muster up a
little bravado and you will
run the show. ***

valid license. I declined invi-
tations when they meant I
would have to drive. It only
got worse after I moved to a
larger city.
I finally sought help and
was diagnosed with an
anxiety disorder that mani-
fested behind the wheel.
I now take medication
and have learned coping
skills to handle my feel-
ings. I agree with you that
"Rather" should see a ther-
apist who can show her
techniques to calm herself
before and during trips. -
CAUTIOUS DRIVER
DEAR ABBY: I had
many of the same fears. I
was afraid something bad
would happen if I was driv-
ing alone in the car. Even
though I was 18, I didn't
feel old enough or respon-
sible enough to be driving.
Once I got my license, I
loved driving! If I had real-
ized earlier what a sense
of freedom and maturity
getting my license would
give me, I would have got-
ten it the day I turned 16.
ALSO A LATE DRIVER
DEAR ABBY: "Rather"
has good reason to fear
driving: Motor vehicle
crashes are the leading
cause of death among
U.S. teens. In 2009, about
3,000 teens ages 15 to 19

You are on a roll and
nobody can stop you. Your
ideas are unique and work-
able, and your ability to
make a profit will push you
to the head of your class.
Enjoy your good fortune,
but don't go overboard or
all will be lost. ***
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Emotional deception
can cause problems when
dealing with colleagues,
peers and institutional mat-
ters. Keep things simple,
and refuse to let anyone
lead you down the wrong
path. Call the shots and
avoid questionable people.

LIBRA (Sept 23-Oct.
22): Interacting with
other creative people will
bring interesting results.
Diversity is essential, and
the more you bring to the
table the more valuable
you will become. Don't
let a personal matter slow
your professional progress.

SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov.
21): Not everyone will
understand what you are
trying to accomplish. Stick
to the people who get what
you are doing and you
will receive input that will

in an urban area with side-
walks, bicycle lanes and
good public transit and
minimize or even elimi-'
nate the need to drive.
People who walk are
less likely to experience
many health problems.
They are not the ones who
should consider talking
to a therapist Rather, it is
those drivers who account
for the 65 percent of trips
under a mile that are taken
by car. PROMOTING
TRANSPORTATION
SAFETY
DEAR ABBY: If "Rather"
wants to drive and just
needs to get past the initial
fear that comes along with
the enormous responsibili-
ty, then your advice was on
target for how to get over
her insecurity. However, if
she just prefers to walk, I
can tell her from personal
experience that a person
can function just fine, espe-
cially in a large city.
I took driver's ed when
I was 16 and never got
comfortable driving, nor
did I feel the need to get
my license. I am now 33,
living in a large city. I walk
to my job, the grocery
store and anywhere else
I need to go. If I choose
to venture farther, there
is public transportation..

SAGITT1ld US (Nov0
22-Dec. 21): Taking atrip,
whether it's a short or long
distance, will result in reju-
venation and a better view
of what you want to do in
the future. Now is the time
to contemplate so you can
move forward with clarity.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19): Money matters
may have to be handled
in an unorthodox manner.
Separate your personal and
professional goals to see
your assets and liabilities
clearly. A change at home
will help you ease any stress
you've been feeling. ***
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): Emotions will be
difficult to hide. You can
help eliminate your prob-
lems if you share your con-
cerns with a partner, close
friend or confidant. Open
up and you will find a way
to turn any negative you
face into a positive. ***
PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20): Give help and get it
in return. The guidelines
you set up now will help
you accomplish your goals.
Keeping things equal will be
the factor that will allow you
to continue to work in part-
nership with others. ***

other books of their choos-
ing. The swap will continue
