Blanchard on administrative leave "due to
the nature and extent" of the allegations,
according to Johnson's Jan. 20 letter sus-

Johnson has not speci-
fied the allegations against
Blanchard.
Blanchard was hired

ment, Blanchard had been assigned to

tor. He was the department's Interim
Patrol Commander and Interim Patrol
Lieutenant before being promoted to
captain in October 2010. ,
According to LCPD, Blanchard submit-
ted his resignation by letter to Gilmore.
LCPD's other captain, Robert Smith,

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS



Super Bowl gets dose of star power


INDIANAPOLIS Indiana the
place where Peyton Manning, Larry
Bird, the Hoosiers and more have cre-
ated the stuff of legend is undoubt-
edly a sports mecca.
A celeb magnet however? Not so
much. "
But that will change over the next
few days as Madonna and an assort-
ment of stars from film, music and
TV arrive for four compact days of
entertainment and partying tied to the
Super Bowl.
"It doesn't even matter what state
or what city it's going to be in, people
are going to come
and they're going to I
party and they will .
enjoy the game," said
rapper-turned-celeb-
DJ D-Nice, who is
spinning at the ESPN
Next party hosted Madonna
by Carolina Panthers
quarterback Cam
Newton and featuring a performance'
by chart-topping rapper Drake.
Alec Baldwin is hosting the "NFL
Honors," which will features celebs
like Lenny Kravitz; Snoop Dogg, Nas
and J. Cole are expected to perform
separately at various parties; Steven
Tyler and Carrie Underwood are
performing for "CMT Crossroads"
on Super Bowl eve; and "Late Night
With Jimmy Fallon" is planning a,
broadcastt after the Super Bowl with
scheduled guests to include Taylor
Lautner, Tracy Morgan, Tim Tebow
and Maroon 5's Adam Levine. Playboy
is, having its annual Super Bowl party,
as is Maxim, which has a superhero
theme. Both promise curvaceous
beauties and celebs.
,Its looking to be a strong celeb
turnout, dispelling some initial con-
cerns that the choice of Indianapolis
might lead to weaker participation
from stars than in previous years,


when the Super Bowl was held in
sunny, celebrity-friendly cities like
Miami and San Diego.
Tracy Kessler, an event planner who
has curated the Maxim party for the
last seven years, says it helps that the
San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore
Ravens collapsed in the final minutes
of the AFC and NFC Championship
games, leaving the Super Bowl to the
New England Patriots and the New
York Giants.

Letterman celebrating 30th
year hosting late night TV
NEW YORK As David Letterman
and Howard Stern can attest, a
30-year anniversary celebration is a
ripe opportunity to cringe at geeky
haircuts.
Letterman marked three decades
in late-night TV on Wednesday on
CBS by bringing Stern, one of his
favorite guests, onto his "Late Show."
They congratulated each other on age
improving their looks.
Then Letterman proved it, display-
ing a picture of them from when
Stern first appeared on the then-NBC
show in May 1984. Letterman had a
bushy head of hair. Stern had a mus-
tache.
Letterman said about Stern's old
picture: "It looks like a guy who was
on to talk about a career of writing
bad checks."
Stern advised burning the picture
but recalled how grateful he had been
for the invite.
"Back then, the fact that you asked
me to be on a national television show
was mind-blowing to me," he said.
i letterman also brought some of
his long-time employees onstage to
present,the 'Top Ten Things Staffers
Would Like to Say to Dave on his
30th Anniversary in Late Night"
One of the cleanest, and most suc-


cinct, entries came from veteran exec-
utive producer Rob Burnett "You're
incompetent"

Billy Ray Cyrus signs deal
to work with Amazon
NEW YORK Billy Ray Cyrus is
the latest celebrity to sign up with
Amazon.com
The singer of "Achy Breaky Heart"
and father and former co-star of Miley
Cyrus has a memoir, "Hillbilly Heart,"
coming in spring 2013.
Amazon.com, which has been
aggressively expanding its publishing
operation, announced Thursday that
Cyrus would discuss with "great can-
dor" everything from his early years
to life as the parent of a teen super-'
star. Cyrus and his daughter starred
together in the hit TV series "Hannah
Montana."

Bankrupt Kodak wants
name off Awards home
BUFFALO, N.Y. Eastman
Kodak Co. wants to end its contract
for naming rights to the glamor-
ous Los Angeles theater that hosts
the Academy Awards as it tries to
improve its financial position enough
to move out of bankruptcy.
The photography pioneer's financial
advisers say the benefits of having
the company's name on the 3,300-
seat Kodak Theatre aren't worth the
contract's cost according to a motion
filed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court this
week.
Under the contract with CIM Group
of Los Angeles, details of which
were not disclosed in the court fil-
ing, Kodak "pays a significant annual
amount for, among other things, the
naming rights related to the Kodak
Theatre," which opened in 2001.

Towel used to
incriminate suspect
BRADENTON A towel
used by a robbery suspect
to cover his head gave
Manatee County Sheriff's
, investigators the clue they
needed to find him.
Deputies say 36-year-old

snatch a customer's purse
at a convenience store
last May. He dragged the
victim a short distance

go of the purse. He finally
pulled the purse from her
grip and ran out the door.
The woman's son ran after
him and tried to get the
purse back. But the sus-
pect pulled a gun and fled.

results in a national data-

match for Jackson. He was
arrested Monday.

Commissioners modify water bill policy


By GORDON JACKSON
gjackson@lakecityreporter.comrn

When Columbia County start-
ed estimating all water bills on
the 20th of each month recently,
it created a problem for several
new water customers.
The computer billed six new
customers for an entire month,
even though they were only
hooked up a few days before the
billing period ended.
Commissioners at Thursday's
meeting, voted to repay the six
customers at total of $28.18 for


water and billing fees they should
have never been charged.
Commissioners also voted
unanimously to prorate all water
bills for new customers who hook
up after a billing period begins.
After discussing whether to
wait until the first full billing
period to send new customers
their first bill, commissioners
chose to send a prorated bill for
the first month, regardless of the
number of days they are hooked
up to the system.
Adding the prorated amount
to the first full monthly bill could
present a hardship for some,


commissioners said before the
vote.
Customers will still be required
to pay a $50 refundable deposit,
county officials said.
New qualifications for fire chief
were also approved at the meet-
ing. Department head qualifica-
tions are always reviewed when
commissioners prepare to hire
a new department head. They
are looking for a replacement
for Tres Atkinson who resigned
to take another fire chief's posi-
tion in South Carolina, where he
spent most of his career.
Commissioner Ron Williams


encouraged county staff to con-
sider three existing fire depart-
ment employees who meet the
new criteria approved unani-
mously at the meeting before
considering applicants from out-
side the department.
"I encourage us to promote
from within," he said.
Commissioners also gave
reports from their visits to
Tallahassee earlier this week,
where they met with state leg-
islators to discuss local legisla-
tion.
Scarlet Frisina, commission
chair, said she went to Tallahassee


on Tuesday night and met with
state Rep. Elizabeth Porter.
"I felt like we got all of our
issues out there," Frisina said.
But some didn't feel the trip
was productive.
Williams, who visited the state
capital Monday, said Tallahassee
is "completely shut down" over
the debate on privatizing prisons.
Commissioner Rusty DePratter
agreed with Williams' assess-
ment.
'Tallahassee is in gridlock," he
said. '"The prison issue is making
people paranoid. Nothing else is
being discussed."

The report said Broom
was traveling at an estimated
speed of 76 mph in a posted
45 mph speed zone when the
crash occurred.
"He (Broom) did not have
any blue lights going," said
Lt Pat Riordan, FHP Troop
B public affairs officer. "No
blue lights, no siren and
he was not responding to a
call."
The traffic citations stem
from a Sept 6 accident in
which Broom and local busi-
nesswoman Ruby Earline
Parker suffered serious inju-
ries when their vehicles col-
lided at the intersection of
Sisters Welcome Road and
U.S. Highway 90.
FHP reports said Parker
was traveling west on U.S. 90
in a 2006 Cadillac at an esti-
mated speed of 16 mph when


from noon- midnight "Black
history should be celebrated
by America, because it dem-
onstrates the improvements
,that have been made," said
Ron Williams Sr.
Saturday's film festival will
feature the Blindside starring
Qinton Aaron and Sandra
Bullock. Invictus starring


she turned left onto Sisters
Welcome Road and into the
path of Broom, approaching
from, the east in his LCPD
cruiser.
The front of Parker's
vehicle struck the front of
Broom's 2008 Ford Crown
Victoria nearly head-on. Both
cars spun after the impact
with Parker's vehicle coming
to rest in the right lane of
U.S. Highway 90. As a result
of the impact, Broom's cruis-
er traveled onto the south
shoulder of U.S.. Highway 90
where its left side struck the
traffic signal support pole
and dislodged a fire hydrant
Broom pleaded not guilty
to both citations after initially
entering a plea of no contest.
Court officials will schedule
a full hearing at a later date
before Collins.

"40!'


TEACHER: Director hits right notes

Continued From Page 1A


Imogene Miller, a retired Columbia
County teacher and 1990 Teacher of
the Year. Miller was Keen's elemen-
tary music teacher. She once visited
Keen's classroom and said the students
were disciplined and interested. "He's
very concerned about every child," she
said.
"It's a neat experience," said Keen of
teaching in an area where he was once
a student. "A lot of times I think about
what it was like for me."
Keen said students respect' him
because he takes a personal interest
in their lives and doesn't talk down to
them. "I show that I care. I'm friendly.".
Keen said he likes to joke around with
his students, but counters that with
hard work. "I'm pretty strict. In order
to have a good product you have to do
that."
Principal Bessie Whitfield said it is
amazing how much Keen can teach
students, some who have never picked
up an instrument, in just a few months.
Keen's bands have won district and
regional awards, she said. Band is a
popular class at Richardson and often.
there are more requests for the class
than seats, she said.
Keen was a student at Fort White
High School while Whitfield was an
assistant principal. "It's amazing see-
ing him go from band member to band
director," she said.
Whitfield said Raymond Macatee,
who passed away in January, would
have been proud. He worked hard to
provide students with instruments
through his Scrap to Music program,
she said. He gave many students at
Richardson, a Title 1 school, a chance
to play in the band. "We are dearly


going to miss him."
Many of Keen's fellow Richardson
teachers attended the program to show
support.
Former students that are now in high
school sometimes return to play under
Keen's direction during middle school
football games, said Cricket Morgan,
a sixth grade teacher at Richardson.
Cindy Jarrell, a sixth grade teacher,
said Keen has an energetic and positive
attitude.
Alvin Davis,. 2012 Florida Teacher
of the Year, gave a keynote speech
encouraging teachers to do their best.
"Educators are nation builders," Davis
said. "Our children only deserve the
best and brightest."
Keen said he appreciated the sup-
portive staff, faculty and administra-
tive members who nominated him and
ensured he has what he needs in his
classroom.
Trevor Tyler, 2012 Teacher of the
Year, said Keen treats all students with
respect and former students think high-
ly of him. His ability to touch his stu-
dents' lives made Keen stand out from
other nominees, Tyler said.
Tyler served on the Teacher of the
Year selection committee along with
Dottie. Knight, of Columbia Public
Schools Foundation; Betty Sauls,
middle level Columbia Teachers
Association representative; Debbie
Harris, elementary level CTA repre-
sentative; Kitty McElhaney, director of
curriculum, assessment and account-
ability; Celeste Levy, community mem-
ber; Ronnie Brannon, county tax col-
lector; Alvin Murphy, retired teacher;
and Steve Nelson, school board chair-
man.

OPINION

ONE
OPINIO


Europe

has high


hopes for

new treaty

On Jan. 1, 1999, 11
members of the
European Union
took what seemed
to be the next logi-
cal step in European unity by
creating a common currency
zone. Three years later, the
old national currencies were
replaced by new coins and ban-
knotes, the euro.
As constructed, the eurozone
had one glaring deficiency:
There was no effective means of
setting, and enforcing, common
fiscal policy.
Now Greece is effectively
bankrupt, and several other
nations are faced with deepening
debt
But on Monday, thanks to
goading by German Chancellor
Angela Merkel, who has
emerged as Europe's strongest
financial leader, 25 of the 27 gov-
ernments in the EU (Britain and
the Czech Republic being the
exceptions) and all 17 eurozone
members signed a new fiscal
compact that imposes tighter
budget discipline backed by fines
of up to 0.1 percent of GDE
Analysts note that the compact
has exceptions and waivers and
that the eurozone has a long way
to go to meet the agreement's
optimistic goals. Only three euro-
zone nations fall within the new
deficit limit of 0.5 percent of GDP
and only five within the debt limit
of 60 percent of GDP
A key test of the eurozone's
new unity will come in mid-
March, when Greece must
come to an agreement with its
bondholders over $270 billion in
debt it can't repay. If it can reach
agreement, probably by requir-
ing the bondholders to settle
for 50 percent of what's owed,
Greece is eligible for a $170 bil-
lon bailout from the permanent.
$660 billion rescue fund the com-
pact created.
The eurozone negotiations
must seem all rather remote
and abstract to the average
American, but the success of this
compact may have a great deal to
do with preventing Europe from
sliding into recession with nega-
tive consequences for our own
fragile economic recovery.

The healing continues


t's been a little over a
year now since my friend
"Denise" (not her real
name) discovered her
husband's long-standing
infidelity. Married over 20 years
with children still at home, she
experienced the betrayal like
one might a hurricane.
But more than a year later,
she and her husband are still
standing. And they are doing it
together.
Early on, Denise asked me
to walk with her in this trial,
and also gave me permission to
anonymously share her story
hoping it might help others. I
first wrote about her and her
hitsband last March. She told
me then about the emotions
she was experiencing. She
shared with me something she
had written in her journal: "...
I have never been so tested in
my life. I just keep trying to
stay focused on how I want this
sad story to have a happy end-
ing, especially for my children."
She did stay focused, and
fought for her marriage.
Thankfully, her husband
decided to do the same. By
August, when I wrote about


Betsy Hart
betsysblog.com


Denise again, things had really
turned a corner. Her husband,
who had taken steps to end the
affair and prove to her it was
over and that he had changed,
had been (and still is) consis-
tent about counseling for him-
self and them:
So where are they now?
Wisely, and in contrast to
what the popular culture often
preaches, they both believe that
she does not bear any respon-
sibility for the affair. (After all,
every married person has a
flawed spouse who does not fully
meet his or her needs that's the
only kind of spouse there is!) But
now, as she sees him committed
to the marriage, she's freer to
enjoy pleasing him as a wife. And
to ask in turn for what she needs
from him as her husband.


She said that her marriage
has new rhythms. He's always
enjoyed the outdoors and now
she is joining himr in many of
those pursuits, including hiking
and biking. She's letting him
know, much more vocally and
consistently, that he is appreci-
ated.
So, does she trust him?
"Yes," she told me. But she also
knows she could be wrong. The
healing continues.
I asked Denise if she's angry
at her husband, not just about
the betrayal but the time ifs
taken to heal from it over the
last year. Knowing Denise, I
wasn't surprised when she said,
"No because I've learned so
much and grown so much. I'm
a better mom and we have a
better marriage." Is it all rosy?
No. But another friend asked
her recently: "Why are you put-
ting yourself through this for
this guy?" And blessedly, she
told me, she was able to hon-
estly respond: "Because ifs so
worth it"

If Newt can onl make it to


the 1858 Illinois debates


Reporters covering
the Republican
presidential cam-
paign note that Mitt
Romney's every
move is scripted and that Newt
Gingrich's top aides frequently
don't know where he is.
Early in his campaign,
Gingrich abruptly took off on
a luxury cruise of the Greek
Islands. When he returned, his
then-top aides were gone.
Like his staff, the news media
is curious about what the former
House speaker will do next
What he would like to do is more
debates, and with 19 of them so
far, the Republican Party is doing
its best to accommodate him and
exhaust the public's patience.
But Gingrich has become
increasingly finicky about the
kind of debates hell attend. (No
one in politics seriously believes
he'll skip one if he can't get his
way.)
First, a member of the press
can't be the moderator, even
though in South Carolina Fox's
Juan Williams and CNN's John
King fed him his best lines.
Gingrich says rather mysteri-
ously, "We don't need a second
Obama person at the debate."
If the first Obama person qui-
etly slipped into the back row at
these debates, King, Williams
and indeed the whole press
corps fell down !: illi t r badly on
the job. Not %:niiloimw to unfairly
characterize the audience at the
South Carolina debates, a black
person would have been hard


Dale McFeatters
mcfeattersd@shns.com

to overlook, especially if he was
president of the United States.
Secondly, Gingrich wants an
audience that will whoop and hol-
ler, but in a friendly venue where
the crowd will whoop and holler
for him.-
Thirdly, his debating partners
have to be honest He does not
think Romney is honest "You
cannot debate somebody who is
dishonest You just can't," said
the first speaker of the House
ever censured for, among other
things, providing the ethics com-
mittee "false information."
Gingrich gets his next chance
to debate Feb. 22, in Arizona, and
assuming he hasn't been busted
on a perjury rap for an offense
we don't know about, Romney
will be on the stage.
What strategy for the fall cam-
paign Gingrich has articulated is
a plan to follow Barack Obama,
challenging him to a series of
three-hour Lincoln-Douglas-style
debates. It's a curious choice.
Perhaps in his role as histo-
rian at Freddie Mac, no execu-
tive ever called and said, "Hey,
Newt, were those Abe Lincoln-
Stephen Douglas debates for


the presidency?"
And Gingrich, being an actual
historian, replied, "No, they
were for a U.S. Senate seat from
Illinois."
Gingrich, who undoubtedly
identifies with Lincoln, surely
knows that the great rail-splitter
lost the election. Moreover, the
debates were hardly high points
of American oratory.
Re-creating those 1858 debates
would be an interesting exercise
in American history. There were
no microphones or loudspeakers,
so Gingrich and Obama would
have to shout for the whole three
hours.
Moreover, the huge audi-
ences that turned out for political
debates in those entertainment-
starved days quite often arrived
at the venue drunk and got
drunker as the debate wore
on. The spectators shouted,
whooped, interrupted, heck-
led, talked over the speakers
and generally carried on in a
roughhewn, frontier-style way,
descriptions no one would apply
to Gingrich or, for that matter,
Obama.
Before that happy day arrives,
Gingrich first has to win the
Republican nomination. After his
damaging Florida loss, his sup-
porters held up signs saying, "46
States To Go." That's not a plan, a
strategy or even a morale booster
- more like a dire warning.

ANO

THEIR
E W


FAA deal


only took


Congress


five years

T" he Federal Aviation
Administration
bill was delayed
23 times, but the
agency finally has a
law giving it $63 billion and full
operating authority for the next
four years. For those of you
counting, that's only one year
less than the five years it took
Congress to enact the measure.
For the air traveler, the
key portion of the bill
is funding to continue
the FAA's migration to
its Next Generation Air
Transportation System, one
based on GPS technology
that is now standard almost
everywhere except with the .
FAA.
The FAA still relies on
radar that, while greatly
improved, is basically the
same system used to direct
air traffic since World War
II. The vast increase in air
travel and the tendency of
the system to come to a halt,,
over single events like a
snowstorm in Chicago make .,
the new system imperative.
One of the toughest
hurdles was a weak attempt
to reform the Essential Air
Service program that sub-
sidizes air service to rural
communities. Curiously,
many of these communities
tend to be in the districts
of influential members of ;
Congress.
A notorious example was
the airport in Johnstown,
Pa., the hometown of the
late Rep. John Murtha,
chairman of an influential
defense subcommittee, that
received $200 million in
subsidies over the years
for a facility that handled
six flights a day, coinci-
dentally all round trips to
Washington.
The subsidy came out to
about $150 a passenger, and
most days Transportation
Security Administration
personnel outnumbered pas-
sengers.
The EAS did not take a
great hit -- going from $200
million a year to $190 mil-
lion a year -- and the pro-
gram will be limited to the
150 communities already in
it.
But communities that are
within 175 miles of a hub
airport and average less
than 10 passengers a day
over a year would lose their
subsidized service.
The bill also contains
a provision that makes it
harder for airline and rail-
road workers to unionize --
the two groups are covered
by different labor laws than
other workers but not as
hard as Republicans wanted
to make it last summer
when they forced a partial
shutdown in the agency at
a cost to the government of
$350 million in lost ticket
taxes.
Democrats had wanted to
write into the law certain
passenger rights -- such as
being kept sitting on the
tarmac for no longer than
three hours -- but oppo-
nents argued, with some
justification, that the same
goals had already been -met
through regulations.
Maybe it says something
about bipartisanship that
the two parties were finally
able to come to a deal, but it
says nothing good about the:
spirit of compromise that it
took them five years to do
it.

183 trail miles


make for some


good hiking


LIVE OAK Andre Marcil, a member of the Florida
Trail Association Suwannee Chapter, knows a good hiking
trail when he sees one. He has planned guided hikes and
helped maintain the Florida Trail for nearly 30 years eight
of those in this neck of the woods.One of his favorites in
north-central Florida is along the Suwannee River corridor.
The terrain is hilly, with elevations of 50 feet in some areas,
he says. There are creeks to cross. It is good exercise.
"I was at Holton Creek recently," he said. "I felt like I
could be some place up north."
Marcil describes the woods as "God's cathedral."
"Hiking is a good way to connect with nature; it is good
for the body and soul; some say it's cheaper than therapy,"
he said.
The Suwannee
Chapter of the Florida
TrailAssociationhelps
organize guided hikes
and camping and
canoeing trips, some
of which take place
on lands owned by
the Suwannee River
Water Management
District (District).
They also help main-
tain the Florida Trail,

trail that extends the
length of the state.

METH: Memorable bust

Continued From Page 1A


Civic headed northbound
on Interstate 75 traveling
82 mph in a 70 mph zone.
During a search of
the vehicle, deputy Matt
Grinstead found a plastic
storage container contain-
ing a white,. crystalline
type substance. Officers
believedthe substance was
methamphetamine and a
test of the substance con-
firmed the fact, reports
indicate.
Dam and Cardona were
taken into custody without
incident and transported
to the Columbia County
Sheriff's Office to be inter-
viewed.
Authorities say the men
were returning from a trip


to South Florida when they
were stopped for speed-
ing.
The methamphetamine
weighed approximately
1,216 grams nearly a
kilogram of finished meth-
amphetamine.
Sgt. Ed Seifert, Columbia
County Sheriff's Office
public information officer,
said the street value of the
seized methamphetamine
is estimated to be over
$150,000.
In a press release Seifert
characterized the seizure
as the largest by CCSO "in
recent memory."
Deputies Jesse Cieslik
and Jimmy Finnell assisted
in the case, Seifert said.


Clay Electric approves $5.25 million refund


KEYSTONE HEIGHTS -
Clay Electric Cooperative's
board of trustees has
announced -a $5.25 mil-
lion capital credits refund
to entitled members of the
co-op who received service
between 1987 and 2010.
General Manager/CEO
Ricky Davis said the trustees
considered a variety of finan-
cial and economic conditions
before deciding to make
the refund. This will be the
cooperative's 38th consecu-
tive refund of capital cred-
its. Capital credits are one of


many benefits of belonging
to an electric cooperative,
along with democratic mem-
ber control.
Clay Electric is a not-for-
profit cooperative, so any prof-
its left over at the end of the
year after expenses are paid
are assigned to members on a
pro-rata basis, to be refunded
at a later date as capital credits.
Last year, the co-op refunded
$5 million in capital credits
to entitled members. These
refunds help offset the cost
of power for members of the
cooperative.


Current members of the
cooperative who are entitled
to a refund will receive a
credit on their March bills.
The refund is determined
by the amount of electric-
ity used and by how long a
customer has been a mem-
ber of the co-op. The aver-
age credit amount is $19.


Members entitled to a refund
but who are no longer receiv-
ing service from the co-op
will be mailed a refund check
in mid-March. The average
check amount for these for-
mer customers is $28.56.
'The refund of capital
credits is a tangible and
unique benefit of receiving


service from a not-for-profit
electric cooperative," Davis
said. "Other utilities that
have margins left over after
expenses are paid return
these funds to stockhold-
ers as dividends. Municipal
utilities return their mar-
gins to the city government
coffers."


Capital credits are a
source of equity for coopera-
tives. Capital credits enable
cooperatives to reduce
the amount of money they
must borrow for a variety
of projects and purchases.
This means less borrowed
money and fewer interest
payments.

Peyton Manning casts large shadow over Super Bowl


By MICHAEL MAROT
Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS For
a Manning who isn't in the
Super Bowl, this one sure is
making headlines.
It happened again
Tuesday, when Colts quar-
terback Peyton Manning
denied whispers that he
was pondering retirement.


"I have no plans on doing
that," he said.
It's the strongest indica-
tion that, despite having
his third neck operation
in September, he hopes to
play in the NFL when the
new season kicks off later
this year something the
league is happy about.
"My plan hasn't changed,"
he said. "I'm on track with


what the doctors have told
me to do, and I'm doing
that. I'm rehabbing hard."
The NFL would prefer
to keep the focus on this
week's juiciest story lines
- Giants quarterback Eli
Manning trying to outdo his
older brother by winning a
second Super Bowl; Patriots
quarterback Tom Brady
and coach Bill Belichick


chasing their fourth titles
and maybe exacting a little
revenge for their loss to
New York four years ago.
But as everyone knows,
this is Peyton's place,
his town, and fans hang
on every detail of his
recovery.
"It's not the way it should
be," he said earlier Tuesday
in a taped interview with


ESPN.
The Colts ended their
most tumultuous month in
more than a decade with
another flurry of moves.
Team officials confirmed
Tuesday that they had hired
Bruce Arians, Manning's
former quarterbacks coach,
as offensive coordinator,
and Harold Goodwin as
offensive line coach.

Giants D-line a key vs



Brady in Super Bowl


By TOM CANAVAN
Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS The
Giants defense will do
everything it can to pres-
sure Tom Brady, and the
way the front four has been
playing lately it's more a
matter of what happens
when the pass rush closes
in on the Patriots quarter-
back.
"I think it starts with hit-
ting him, even when you
don't actually get sacks, just
keeping people around him
so he can't step up," defen-
sive end Justin Tuck said
Tuesday at media day. "I
think he gets a little frus-
trated when he has to go to
his second or third receiv-
ers. You can kind of con-
fuse him sometimes with
our coverage. I think there
are a lot of things that can
get him rattled, but it just
seems like not too many
people are able to do that."
The Giants have the people
to make ithappen in Sunday's
Super Bowl. In beating the
Patriots four years ago in the
NFL title game, the Giants
sacked Brady five times, hit
him nine other times and
forced a fumble in their 17-
14 upset
In turning around their
season with a five-game win-
ning streak to make it to
Indianapolis, the Giants (12-
7) have allowed a total of
67 points, 13.4 per game,
and produced 20 sacks with
no opposing quarterback
throwing for more than 251
yards including Aaron
Rodgers of the Packers.
"'To be honest, I think our
confidence is very high,"
said second-year defensive
end Jason Pierre-Paul, who
led the Giants with 16'h
sacks in the regular season.
'We know what we have
to do and what's at stake.
This is our last game, and
we're in the Super Bowl.
We have to go out and give
it our all."
In their 24-20 win over the
Patriots iq early November,
the Giants sacked Brady
twice and had two inter-
ceptions. One sack led to
a fumble recovery that set
up a score.

that disrupted his tim-

tor Perry Fewell said. "We
caused him to stay jittery
in the pocket. Hopefully we
can do that again."
A lot of changed since
that game. Tuck was play-
ing hurt at the time. Osi
Umenyiora was still not
healthy after missing the
start of the season with a
knee injury and the defense
was still giving up too many
big plays.
Now, everyone on the
defense is healthy. The sec-
ondary is covering receiv-
ers and the line has finally
meshed and is playing its
best.
Umenyiora has no doubt
the Giants will get to
Brady.
"They're going to definite-
ly do some things to keep us
off of him, max protections,
short throws, quick throws,
but they can only do that for
so long," Umenyiora said.
"Whenever we have oppor-
tunities where he does hold
the ball, we're going to have
to get to the quarterback."
Center Dan Connolly
said the Patriots need to
keep Brady upright.
"Keeping him from
being hit is our No. 1 goal,"
Connolly said. "If he can
stand back there and do his
job, we'll be OK."

lyst Warren Sapp says the
Patriots better establish a
running game if Brady is to
be successful.
"There is no way they
can drop Tom Brady back
40 times and expose him
to this rush," Sapp said.
"Whoever controls the line
of scrimmage wins this ball-
game. It's always that sim-
ple. If New England can get
a run game going, we have
a ballgame, If they expose
him to the rush when it's
third-and-6, third-and-7 and
third-and-8, look out. You
can't let a defensive line-
man pin your ears back."
And once the Giants' line
starts getting to the quar-
terback, it's contagious.
"You know, the adrena-
line is pumping," Pierre-
Paul said. "You just have to
get there, and like a dunk,
you've just got to dunk the
ball. Once you do it, you
just want another one. Like
a sack, once you get one
sack, you just want more.
The guys on my front line,
if Osi gets a sack, I want
two sacks, because if I get
two sacks, Justin Tuck is
going to want three sacks."
That's what happened
in 2008 when a few of the
names were different, with
the obvious absence being
Michael Strahan.

BEETLE BAILEY


DEAR ABBY


Bride wants to keep friend's

lecherous husband off guest list


DEAR ABBY: Over the
years I've stayed in touch
with my childhood best
friend, "Claire." We talk
a few times a year and I
attended her wedding 10
years ago.
In the intervening years,
her husband, "Kirk," has
cheated on her multiple
times and was once arrest-
ed by an undercover cop
when he tried to meet a
14-year-old for a sexual liai-
son. Despite it all, Claire
has chosen to stay with
him. I have made peace
with the fact that it is her
decision and, because she
lives in another state, it
hasn't affected my life in
any practical way until
now.
I am being married
next year, and Claire has
expressed excitement at
attending my wedding.
I'd like to invite her, but
not Kirk. I think he would
be too much of a distrac-
tion for me. There will be
enough people keeping
an eye on the kids, but I
know if I see him talking
to my niece or nephew, it
will make me extremely
uncomfortable. God forbid,
if he did something inap-
propriate, it would end my
friendship with Claire.
Am I worrying too
.much? I don't want to hurt
my friend, but I also don't
want to put any child in
harm's way or have my
memory of the day marred
with scanning the crowd to
make sure Kirk isn't doing
anything suspect. Your


Abigail Van Buren
www.dearabby.com
opinion would be helpful. -
- APPREHENSIVE BRIDE-
TO-BE
DEAR APPREHENSIVE:
You need to be up front
and sort this out with
Claire before issuing an
invitation. It is possible
that her husband is legally
enjoined from having con-
tact with minors and could
not attend your wedding
even if invited. If you pre-
fer that he not attend, you
need to have the courage
to say so. It probably won't
be the first time she has
heard it. But safety of the
young people, not to men-
tion your peace of mind,
must come first.

DEAR ABBY: A few
months ago I joined a
small church. It had a
sign-up sheet for people
to bring food to an event.
The information requested
included my name and
email address. The person
in charge of the church
email added me to the
announcements list, and
sent every email as a cc
instead of a blind copy.
Now people I never gave
my email address to (and
would not have given it to)
are replying "all," sending


messages to everyone and
mailing me directly. It
bothers me that they do
this. I'm not sure how to
approach them about this
problem. I guess the rest
don't have issues with it,
but I do. E-PEEVED IN
OKLAHOMA
DEAR E-PEEVED:
You have two choices:
Go through the hassle
of changing your email
address and notifying your
friends and family or sim-
ply hit "delete" when one
of those emails pops up. I
vote for the latter. As you
stated, it's a small church.

DEAR ABBY: I have
been in a relationship with
"Danny" for two years.
He's smart, charming
and funny. However, after
we argue I'm always the
one to start talking to try
to come to a solution or
a compromise. Danny
never takes the initiative.
I think he has a problem
communicating with me
about his feelings. What
should I do? TALKER IN
PORTLAND, MAINE
DEAR TALKER. If after
two years your boyfriend
is unwilling or unable to
resolve disagreements in an
adult fashion, you should
suggest couples counseling.
It could avert serious prob-
lems in the future if you
decide to invest more time
in this relationship.

www.DearAbby.com or
P.O. Box 69440, Los
Angeles, CA 90069.


HOROSCOPES


ZITS


B.C.


FRANK & ERNEST


ARIES (March 21-April
19): Careful how you treat
others. You will end up
getting what you dish out
if you are too critical. It
may be difficult, but you
are best to do a great job
with as little complain-
ing as possible. Personal
change will be enlighten-
ing. ****
TAURUS (April 20-May
20): Apply what you dis-
cover to a project you are
working oA. A service you
can offer will reach a new
outlet if you find a way
to adjust your program
to people in higher posi-
tions. Shoot for the stars.
Romance is highlighted.

GEMINI (May 21-June
20): Expand your interests
and share your thoughts
with people you feel can
benefit from what you have
to say. Interaction will be
your best means to devel-'
op and propagate what you
feel passionate about. Put
your heart and soul into
your work. ***
CANCER (June 21-July
22): Dealing with people
in high places will bring
you additional benefits. A
chance to work with young
and old will open up a new
platform for what you have
to offer. Control your finan-
cial situation, rather than
letting it control you. ***


THE LAST WORD
Eugenia Last

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):
Show off your skills, offer
your services and befriend
those who have some-
thing to offer in return.
Give-and-take will turn
into a prosperous venture
with someone striving to
reach similar goals. Make
personal and emotional
improvements. ****
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Kick back and enjoy
getting together with peo-
ple who share your inter-
ests. Avoid anyone playing
emotional mind games
with you. Do your best
work and walk away from
anyone who belittles your
efforts or tries to affect
your productivity. **
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): Take on any challenge
that comes your way with
confidence. You have what
it takes to dazzle onlookers
and attract interest, both
personally and profes-
sionally. Self-improvement
projects will bring stellar
results. *****
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov.
21): Choose your battles
wisely. Not everyone will
see things your way. Don't
let anger stand in the way
of resolution. Honesty and
integrity will be the issue
at the end of the day. Call


it as you see it and move
on. ***
SAGrITARIUS (Nov. 22-
Dec. 21): Judge your situation
carefully before you make your
move. Not everyone will buy
into your way of thinking or
the changes you want to make.
An emotional situation can lead
to a change in lifestyle or living
arrangements. ***
CAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19): Expand your
interests and your circle
of friends. The more you
diversify, the greater your
opportunities will be.
Balance and equality will
be key to making a rela-
tionship work. Practicality
plus innovation spells suc-
cess. ***
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): You can stabilize
your personal life by mak-
ing some positive changes
in the way you handle your
money and interests. Don't
let a personal relationship
with someone overshadow
what you feel is the right
thing to do. *****
PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20): Show your true colors.
Being honest about what
you want may not please
everyone, but it will help
you move forward with
your plans. Being sneaky
to avoid an inevitable con-
frontation will add to your
stress and make matters
worse. **
