The Rev. Geraldine W. McClellan was
the keynote speaker during the Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr. 82nd Birthday
Celebration Wednesday.

Reverend: Remember King, and act

Keynote speaker
says King preached
more than dreams.
The legacy of Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr. was not just to
dream or celebrate and remem-
ber him, said the Rev. Geraldine
W. McClellan.
"Sometimes we dream too
long," the pastor of Mt. Pleasant
United Methodist Church in
Gainesville said. "It's all right
to celebrate and remember, but
we've got to act."
McClellan, who is also

"We might not be able to eradicate the
racism, sexism, classism and other isms,
but we can speak up and speak out against
it. It shows even right here such behavior
is not accepted or tolerated."

Rev. Geraldine W. McClellan
Keynote speaker

a chaplain with the Veterans
Administration Hospitals, was
the keynote speaker during
the Dr. Martin Luther King
Jr. 82nd Birthday Celebration
Wednesday at the Lake City VA
Medical Center.
Act is an action word, she
said. An aunt once told her, "You

can talk a lot of stuff, but if you
don't put stuff into action you
might as well be quiet."
People in the community
come from different races, reli-
gions or socioeconomic status,
McClellan said. Hostility instead
of love is often shown to each

"Many of us, if not all of us,
recoil or shrink back from some-
one different," she said.
Differences should be looked
at as an opportunity to show
love in order to build up the
community, McClellan said.
People must educate each other
with factual information and not
by being silent.
Speaking up opens doors, she
said. Everyone has been called
to speak out when an injustice is
being done.
"We might not be able to
eradicate the racism, sexism,
classism and other isms, but

Last January,
an earthquake
devastated Haiti.
The country is still
trying to recover.

agonzalez@lakecityreporter. corn
I t's been a year since
the earthquake that
ravaged Haiti in
2010, and the rubble
has only lately
begun to be cleared out,
said Louis Joseph, pastor
of FirstHaitian Baptist
Church of Lake City.
Louis and his wife,
Marie Joseph, natives of
Haiti, said they were deep-
ly affected by the incident
in their homeland a year
"It was horrible what
happened over there," said
Louis Joseph. "But it is
really sad to say that after
one year, everything is still
the same."
Marie Joseph said that
the rubble that lined the
streets has finally begun
to be cleared out, but the
people are still living in
tents and the buildings
haven't even started to be
rebuilt. She added that it
was partly because the
presidency has not yet
been decided, even though
last November's elections
remain undecided.
Louis Joseph said,
"There is a lack of leader-
ship in Haiti and they need


The Josephs console one another after reflecting the state that Haitians are in a year after the
Caribbean country was struck by an earthquake. Marie Joseph (right), who visited Haiti last
year, said that very little has been done since the natural disaster.

a leader so that people
might know what to do."
Since the earthquake,
Marie said she has visited
her homeland and seen
the ruins the people still
live in. She said, '"We sent
some items over there,
donated clothing and food,
and we are working on
establishing a feeding pro-
gram in Haiti."
Though Louis said their
plans for the upcoming
year include continuing to

send aid in monetary form,
as well as food and cloth-
ing, he added, "We strong-
ly believe that no one can
help Haiti, except God."
Prayer, according to
Louis, is still needed for
the country and the people
of Haiti. "My prayer for
Haiti is that the Lord
guides (it) and helps (it)
in a way man cannot," he
said. "We are very excited
about our plans for the
future. We have projects

right now to go down to
Haiti and build schools,
take clothing, and feed
people. Especially the chil-
Louis and Marie said
the events a year ago bur-
dened their hearts, but
they know that God was in
control. "God knows what
happened," said Louis,
"and the only thing we can
count on now is for God to
rebuild this country, even
when men won't."

Lake City residents Marie and Louis
Joseph (left) read Bible scriptures in
remembrance of those who perished in
the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that hit
Haiti last year. The Josephs have donat-
ed clothes, food and supplies to families
like the one in the photo above.

dents involved in the com-
munity, she said. The pro-
gram shows their apprecia-
tion to King.
"We're all benefiting
from the things he made
possible," Bernice Presley
said. "He was a great man,

Captain America fights suicide


Captain America's latest
foe is deadlier than the
Red Skull: suicide.
The character armed
with his trademark
shield faces off against suicide in
a new story that publisher Marvel
Entertainment released Wednesday
for free through its website and app.
The toll-free hotline for the
National Suicide Prevention Lifeline
is featured in the work, too.
The 11-page story "Captain
America: A Little Help" is written by
psychologist Tim Ursiny and'illus-
trated by Nick Dragotta.
In it, a despondent youth is poised
to jump off a building when he spies
Captain America facing a bevy of
villains on a nearby roof. The fracas
keeps him from going over the edge,
literally and figuratively. ,
There is no dialogue, save for the
end, which ends with the b6y saving
both the hero and, in the process,
"Super heroes fight a lot of battles,
but there are few more important
than combating suicide," said Tom
Brevoort, Marvel Entertainment's
senior vice president of publishing.
"That's why we're making 'Captain
America: A Little Help' available for
free via our digital comics outlets,"
he said in a statement "If even one
person calls this number instead
of doing something very tragic, we
know that means we succeeded."
Besides being available for free
digitally, the story is featured in the
fifth and final issue of the "I Am An
Avenger" limited series, which was
also released Wednesday.

2" star Eddie Furlong has been arrest-
ed in Los Angeles for violating a court
order to stay 100 yards away from his
estranged wife.
City attorney's office spokesman
Frank Mateljan said the 33-year-old
actor was in court Tuesday for a hear-
ing on the three-year restraining order
obtained by Rachael Kneeland when
the judge ordered his arrest He was
released on $75,000 bond about three
hours later.

People magazine was first to report
the arrest, which came a day after
the premiere of "Green Hornet" The
movie is in theaters Friday.
Kneeland and Furlong, the parents
of a 4-year-old son, are involved in
divorce proceedings.
Prosecutors said Furlong pleaded
no contest in November to violating

ing Tuesday determined he violated

Not charged for
shooting teen
TAMPA A pistol-pack-
ing jogger in Florida won't
be charged for shooting
and killing a teenager who
attacked him during a mid-
night run.
Prosecutors said Tuesday
they are convinced Thomas
Baker acted in self defense
when he fired eight shots at
18-year-old Carlos Mustelier
near Tampa in November.
Prosecutors said Florida's
"stand-your-ground" law
was a factor in their deci-
sion. The law, passed in
2005, gives people the right
to use deadly force as long
as they "reasonably believe"
it is necessary to stop
another person from hurt-
ing them.
Baker told police he
reached for his gun when
the teen punched him in the
face. Baker has a concealed
weapons permit

2 charged with
sexual assaults
men have been charged
with assaulting teenagers
in a church, thanks to a
whistle-blower's tip.
The lawyer for 56-year-
old Paul Keith Groover and
45-year-old Darrell Vincent
Moore declined comment

Tuesday after his clients
pleaded not guilty to sexual
assault charges.
Officials said Groover's
father is a church leader at
Greater Refuge Temple.
Moore is accused of rap-
ing several girls, including
one at knifepoint Arrest
warrants said Groover
molested a boy for several
years and texted him loca-
tions in the church to meet
him for sex.
Both are charged with
sexual battery. Moore is
also charged with lewd and
lascivious conduct

voters are

waking up


S40-year-old mem-
A ber of our editorial
board observed dur-
ing our meeting
L Friday that he was
impressed with voters' enthu-
siasm and conviction for the
election process and the politi-
cians they support.
He noted that his generation
had pretty much skipped politi-
cal activism. He compared his
generation's political apathy to
the sometimes violent passions
expressed by young adults'
civil demonstrations during the
Vietnam War era of the late
1960s and early 1970s.
He believes some of that
passion about politics returned
in 2008 when now President
Barack Obama enlisted young
voters to boost him into office,
and that political vigor has been
countered and accented over the
past year by the Tea Party and
its loosely-knit members.
If we look at each of those
specific groups Vietnam War
era, Obama youth corps and Tea
Party we see they all followed
different strategies for express-
ing their points of view.
Vietnam protests were anti-
war demonstrations orches-
trated by college students that
mutated into urban riots. Those
protests turned deadly in May
1970 when four students were
killed by National Guardsmen at
Kent State University.
President Obama harnessed
the power of the Internet to
communicate with young voters.
The tech-savvy voters embraced
a candidate who Twittered and
Facebooked first before using
conventional communication
methods to enlighten the rest
'of us.
But like the Vietnam era pro-
testors, their enthusiasm faded.
Now we have the Tea Party
taking their platform to the vot-
One thing is evident from the
Nov. 2 election, more Americans
are paying attention to what is
going on in Washington and to
what our elected officials are
doing, and that's a good thing.

A shout-out for moderation

Ever since the hor-
rors of 9/11, wd
have been sounding
a global call urging
millions of moder-
ate, caring Muslims to rise up
and speak out against those
who hijacked their faith to jus-
tify murdering innocents of all'
We have been led in this
decade-long global shout-out
for moderation by prominent
figures from our politics and
news media. But here on the
home front, many of those same
leaders have gone the opposite
way on moderation and civility,
just when a politics of hate has
hijacked our politics.
We have long needed another
shout-out this one beamed at
our own domestic political forc-
es of the left and right, forces
that aren't sinister but have
become sadly cynical.
Yet for years, many of those
leaders who so importantly
pushed for moderation half a
world away failed to hear or
heed calls to reduce their hate
rhetoric at home. Until some-
thing horrifying happened.
After Saturday's horror in
Tucson, Ariz., talking heads
have debated the motive of
the would-be assassin who
gravely wounded Rep. Gabrielle
Giffords (D-Ariz.), killedisix oth-
ers and wounded a dozen more:
Was the gunman motivated by
hate-filled rhetoric that came
largely from the right? But that
mainly missed the point about
what is so wrong with the poli-
tics of hate.
Our discussion must not be
about the specific motive of
this specific shooter. It must be
about whether we as a society
will continue to reward those
on the left and right, in politics
and the media, who seek our
attention and backing by being
calculatedly inflammatory.
So far the mainstream news

Martin Schram
media has been awash with
political and media figures extol-
ling moderation of sorts while
indulging 'i what we'd normally
categorize as reflective intro-
spection. Except it was actually
something we should start call-
ing reflective "extrospection"
- for the talking heads were
mainly decrying failings of those
outside their political own circle,
while ignoring or minimizing
abuses from inside their own.
Talking heads and bloggers
from the left called the hate-
filled. rhetoric from the right
- especially guns and bullets
rhetoric a reason for the
murders before even know-
ing the shooter's name Oared
Loughner, age 22).
Those from the right, mean-
while, found that leftist line
ridiculous but got laryngitis
when asked about their own
side's wrong-speak. Indeed, a
Republican I've long respected,
Sen. Lamar Alexander of
Tennessee, went through
contortions on CNN to avoid
uttering the slightest sound-bite
criticizing Sarah Palin's verbal
and visual excesses: Her "Don't
retreat, reload," which Palin
proudly repeated after health-
care reform was enacted. And
her website map with gun sight-
like crosshairs over districts of
representatives who voted for
healthcare, including Giffords',
We don't know whether
Saturday's shooter would have
attacked even if Palin never
existed or her role were played
by Mary Poppins. But the news
media had the duty to raise

Palin's role because after her
website crosshairs appeared,
someone had shot out Giffords'
office window. That led to the
news clip of Giffords saying
symbols like Palin's gun sight
have "consequences."
Now we can only hope we will
be able to hear Gifford's voice
again, as she fights for life after
her would-be assassin fired his
bullet through her brain.
We must remember that we
are talking about politicians
from the left and right and
.also media celebrities and the
networks that pay them to per-
form as they do (for the ratings
they get).
Chris Matthews, the MSNBC
host (whom I'Ve known for
decades), attacked rightwing
radio icon Rush Limbaugh
in October 2009 by using an
indefensible James Bond movie
reference: "At some point some-
body's going to jam a C02 pellet
into his head and he's going to
explode like a giant blimp." In
2006, MSNBC's liberal commen-
tator Keith Olbermann put an
image of Limbaugh's face over
people shooting automatic weap-
ons. And way back in 2005, con-
servative commentator Glenn
Beck talked at length about how
he wants to murder leftwing
documentarian Michael Moore.
We, as citizens, reward them
and their networks when we
give them the attention they
seek. And let's admit it: we, in
the pundit biz, don't attack them
because we like being on their
shows and networks.
Let us hope Gabrielle Giffords
recovers to enjoy a new reality:
That America's voices of mod-
eration have finally spoken out
and taken back our democracy
from those who hijacked it for
Martin Schram writes
political analysis for Scripps
Howard News Service.


If you can't take the heat, why run?

The commissioners'
non-decision in ref-
erence to cutting
back on the tubing
on the north end of
the Itchetucknee River certainly
smacks of political cowardice.
I didn't vote for my commis-
sioner to only make decisions
that are safe, but to make the
* hard calls, too.
If you can't take the heat,
then why run? It is not sup-
posed to be a safe or popular
position, it is to do the right
things. Some might argue that
the commissioners are defer-
ring to bureaucrats with more
knowledge of science.

If the commissioners can't
take the time to read the
science and make a decision,
I don't want them in office.
I want to have a politician
accountable for whatever action
is taken, and not some bureau-
crat beholden for his/her job to
somebody I can't even find out
This is not "open" govern-
ment and we deserve better
from out public officials.
I hope you will have some
follow up that proves me wrong
and explains how their non-deci-
sion was the right thing to do.

at best, tells

us where

we're going

Perspective, they say,
makes all the differ-
I don't know who
"they" are, or what
possessed them to say it, but I
think they may be right.
Take the perspective, or point
of view, that I see from my desk.
When it changes, I change, too.
I Years ago, when I worked as a
reporter in a newsroom, I wrote
in a cubicle that was, I swear,
smaller than the crate that holds
my son's two yellow Labs.
Unlike Chloe and Abbe, who
have ample room to romp and do
so with abandon, I had to roll my
chair straight into my desk and
- back out without turning.
Not that I minded. I've never
needed much room to write.
Mostly, I just need a deadline.
But a view makes a difference.
After my column became
syndicated, I was free to work at
home in my pajamas, at a desk
in a bay window overlooking
the backyard. Instead of staring
at the wall of a cubicle, I looked
out on a postage-stamp view of
Monterey Bay, glittering silver
and blue in the distance; and
down below, I kept watch on the
basketball court where my three
children shot hoops, terrorized
the dog and tried to maim them-
selves and their friends.
There was never any shortage
of topics to write about
I wrote happily for years from
that vantage point, until the dog
grew old and the kids grew up
and their dad died of cancer.
Then I learned how to be alone
in a four-bedroom house with
five sets of dishes, shelves filled
with Little League trophies and
faded photo albums and a cat that
didn't like me.
Honestly? I wrote pretty hap-
pily from that view, too. Well,
except whenever the cat bit me.
Happiness is not so much about
surroundings. It's more about
what's within.
When I remarried and moved
with my new husband to the last
place on Earth I ever expected to
live Las Vegas he insisted
that the view from my desk
needed to be one that made me
feel at home. So he spent hours
(and nearly lost his religion) fill-
ing a wall in my office with family
photos shots of my kids and
their dad, my parents and grand-
parents, different places, different
times in my life.
I wish you could see it it
reminds me of where I've been
and all the people I've come from.
It tells me who I am.
I love that wall. But I am not
looking at it today. Today, I have
a whole new perspective.
Lately, we've enjoyed a wave
of visitors. My three children,
their others and my 4-month-old
grandson were here for four days
at Christmas. And my husband's
two boys and their girlfriends
arrived today.
Our house is fine for two. For
six, it's like a refugee camp. To
make room, we moved my desk
temporarily from my office to the
bay window in our bedroom.
So instead of seeing my usual
wall of familiar faces, I'm looking
out across the desert to moun-
tains covered in snow.
It's easy to stick with what's
familiar, to look at things the way
we've always seen them. But
we'll never know what we may be
missing until we open our eyes to
a different view. Perspective tells
us where we have been, but at
best it tells us where we're going.
At worst, it'll tell you what it told
me: Your windows could use a
good wash.

Williams and Scarlet
Frisina dissenting to make
the IDA a county depart-
Dale Williams, county
manager, said while the
transition became official,
daily operations for the
department went as usual

"No, nothing is different,"
he said, "and it shouldn't
be. This transition's going
to go real easy. Jim's been
here a long time and wheth-
er he's been underneath
these (county) policies or
not, he's familiar with them

and the IDA had already
mirrored them. This isn't
going to be a huge learning
curve for anybody."
The new Economic
Development Department
will continue using its
current office space on
Northwest Madison Street
in the Bank of America
building, Williams said,
because there is no space
for it in the county annex

The county commission
unanimously approved Jan.
6 creating a nine-mem-
ber economic development
board of seven citizens
and Commissioners Rusty
DePratter and Stephen
Bailey. Citizens comprising
the board will also serve as
the IDA board when indus-
trial revenue bonds need to
be issued. Any current IDA
board member wishing to
serve on the new economic

development board will be
seated on it, a motion also
unanimously passed by the
Williams said no IDA
board members have
yet expressed interest in
moving over to the new
board. Two of those mem-
bers have expressed that
they will not request to be
placed on it, he said.
"Now it didn't have any-
thing to do with the change

in the board," Williams said.
"These were decisions they
were making because of
their private lives and other
things they were involved
in, but the door's open to
them. If they change their
mind, they are more than
welcome to stay also."
A letter inviting all cur-
rent IDA board members
to join the new economic
development board is being
drafted, Williams said.

against diarrhea?

I I,-Im

GOTT: I am
a 98-year-old
man. I have
been read-
ing your column and am
getting tired of hearing
about people having trou-
ble with diarrhea. So I
am writing to tell you and
all these people the best
remedy I learned about
more than 70 years ago.

you get the first signs of

it. This is not a scam, and

Diarrhea can be the
result of a number of
causes, including bacteria
in food, viruses, para-
sites, ingesting an exces-

for prevention include a
teaspoon of apple-cider
vinegar mixed with a
teaspoon of honey in
water 30 minutes before
each meal, bismuth sub-

an attack, the juice of a
freshly squeezed lemon
in a glass of water up
to four times a day, 6
ounces of red wine, psyl-
lium capsules, bee pollen
taken several times'each
day and last but not
least several fresht or
frozen blackberries. The
whole berries can be sub-
stituted with blackberry
juice, a shot of blackber-

Business as usual for

underclassmen in draft

Associated Press

As college football under-
classmen from Stanford
quarterback Andrew Luck
- staying in school to
LSU cornerback Patrick
Peterson leaving for
the pros weigh whether
to head to the NFL, it's
clear they're aware of the
league's impending labor
Still, that does not appear
to be influencing many deci-
sions ahead of Saturday's
deadline to declare for the
"I don't think the looming
potential of the lockout is
affecting decisions," agent
Peter Schaffer said in a tele-
phone interview. "I really
don't believe the uncertain-
ty of the labor situation is
skewing decisions one way
or another in any significant
proportion. It's pretty much
been business as usual."
Indeed, the NFL expects
the number of underclass-

men eligible for the draft to
fall within the range estab-
lished over the past decade.
An average of 46 players was
granted what the NFL calls
"special eligibility" each draft
since 2001, with a low of 35
that year and a high of 53 in
both 2008 and 2010.
While Saturday is the
last day an underclassman
can put his name up for
the draft, he then has 72
hours to change .his mind.
The NFL will announce the
early entry candidates next
The current NFL labor
deal expires in early March,
and the players' union is
convinced the owners are
planning to lock them
out. Even if that happens,
April's draft will go on as
scheduled, although rook-
ies wouldn't be able to sign
contracts until a new collec-
tive bargaining agreement
is in place.
Among the factors under-
classmen might consider:
N It's possible there won't

be a 2011 NFL season at all,
so players leaving college
could wind up sitting out an
entire year.
Even if an agreement
is reached in time for next
season to be played, the.
timing of a deal might
result in shortened training
camps or no minicamps, so
"your development might
be stunted a little versus
years past," Schaffer said. A
rookie would have less time
to learn his new team's sys-
tem and prove he deserves
to start- or, in some cases,
even make the roster.
M Owners are intent on
having a rookie wage scale
be part of a new CBA.
wrote about "the outrageous
sums paid to many unproven
rookies" in a recent letter
sent to fans about the labor
situation, and such a change
could apply to the 2011 draft
Entering the pros

NFL "clock" sooner, mov-

ing him closer to his second
contract and free agency,
which could be particularly
attractive if a rookie wage
scale is created.
"The labor situation in the

each one of these guys had
to evaluate as reality of how
it could affect their develop-
ment," Alabama coach Nick
Saban said last week, when
Heisman Trophy winner
Mark Ingram and two other
juniors opted to enter the
draft. "I think every guy did
From what players mak-
ing _their announcements
have said, it sounds as
though plenty of more tra-
ditional factors are playing
roles: how high they expect
to oe drafted; what the
expectations are for their
college teams next season;
whether an injury in col-
lege could set them back;
whether they think there
is room to rise in the draft
with another good college
season, etc.

Fox. finally makes it to

Denver for interview

Associated Press

brought his spiffy new
orange tie to Denver along
with a proven blueprint for
resurrecting a downtrod-
den team.
Fox finally arrived in
Denver early Wednesday
afternoon to meet with
the Broncos about their
head coaching vacancy
after his flight out of North
Carolina was delayed three
times this week by winter
Fox then met with John
Elway, who is leading the
team's second head coach-
ing search in two seasons,
to see if he was a good
fit with the Broncos, who
are coming off a franchise-
worst 4-12 season.

It's not my first rodeo, so
, to speak," Fox said. "So, I
think I do have a blueprint
to do it. We've had success,
some years more than oth-
ers. But you know the full
body of work I think holds
a blueprint for success."
Fox has built a team from
the ground up before.
"When I went into the
Panthers we were 1-15 and
it was very similar, a sec-
ond (overall) pick, much
the same situation," he
Fox's contract wasn't
renewed by the Panthers
following an NFL-worst
2-14 season. He is the fifth
candidate the Broncos
have interviewed to replace
Josh McDaniels, who
was fired Dec. 6 amid the
team's worst slide in four
decades and the embar-
rassing Spygate II video-
taping scandal.
Fox said his interview
was as much about him get-
ting a feel for the Broncos
to see if the fit was right.
"This is going to be two-
sided," he said. "I want to
see what direction they
want to go, and whether
or not I can be a benefit
to that. We'll find out and
that's why I'm here."
Although fellow can-
didates Eric Studesville,
Perry Fewell and Dirk
Koetter have interim head
coaching experience and
Rick Dennison has deep
organizational knowledge
after spending 24 years
with the Broncos as a play-
er and an assistant, none
of them have the coaching
credentials that Fox does.
Fox, 55, spent the last
nine seasons as Carolina's
coach, going 73-71 and win-
ning five of eight games in

Former Carolina Panther coach John Fox reacts during the
first half against the Atlanta Falcons at the Georgia Dome
in Atlanta on Jan. 2. Fox met with the Denver Broncos on

three trips to the playoffs.
The Panthers were coming
off a 1-15 season when he
took over in 2002 and ,led
them to a 7-9 mark in his
first year before guiding
them to the Super Bowl in
his second season.
"I think the rebuild (in
Denver) probably is going
to require a little bit more
on defense than offense
but you know, I think I
have a blueprint that we
executed in Carolina and
I don't see any reason why
it wouldn't work here in
Denver," Fox told report-
ers at Denver International
Airport before heading to
Dove Valley.
General manager Brian
Xanders has said the
team's top priority is fix-
ing the last-place defense,
-which will be the focus on
Denver's draft, and Fox's
background is steeped
in defense. He spent 13
years as a defensive assis-
tant with the Steelers,
Chargers, Raiders, Rams
and Giants, including
seven seasons as defensive
coordinator, before taking
over the Panthers.
Fox said he wouldn't have
a problem if the Broncos
want to stick with the 3-4
defensive scheme they've
employed since 2009 even
though he mostly used a
4-3 look in Carolina.
Another advantage for
Fox is his deep roots in the
NFL, which would allow
him to build a strong staff.

Fox's Panthers teams
averaged nearly nine wins
a season in his first eight
years in Charlotte, -but
Carolina was the only team
with a worse record than
Denver in 2010.
Fox insisted he wasn't
beaten down by last year's
difficult season or by the
grind of being an NFL
head coach for nearly the
last decade.
"I still have a big passion
for it," he said. "I'm excited
about this opportunity, the
Broncos' tradition. I think
getting John involved is
critical. And I just want to
get a chance to visit these
guys and see what their
plan's going to be."
Elway said last week
when he was hired as the
team's new chief football
executive that his new
coach should be willing
to work with rookie quar-
terback Tim Tebow. And
Fox said he's a big believer
in the former Florida star
who started Denver's last
three games.
"Well, I'll say this: I had
dinner with the young
man in Gainesville in the
evaluation process and I
know he'll do whatever it
takes to be a great player,"
Fox said. "He's got a lot of
the intangibles I look for
and where that goes, it's
hard to predict. He's in
the development stage for
sure, but I think he has the
makings to be as good as
he wants to be."

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis leaves the stadium after an NFL AFC wild card
football playoff game against the Chiefs Sunday in Kansas City, Mo. The Ravens play at
Pittsburgh in the second round of the AFC playoffs on Saturday.

NFL: Ravens could pull road upset

Continued From Page 11

AFC title game for the
second straight year. Bill
Belichick and his Patriots
(14-2) are no match in the
war of words.
Where they are a tough
matchup is at Gillette
Stadium. The last time the
Jets came calling, they left
battered and silenced, 45-3
losers on Dec. 6.
"We moved past that
game," Jets coach Rex Ryan
said, "but we'll certainly
look at it and try to improve
on it. When you're down
100 points, you'll probably
make mistakes."'
New England is a 9-point
favorite for its first playoff
game since the Ravens
came into Foxborough and
routed them 33-14 in the
first round a year ago. Hard
to believe that Tom Brady
has won 28 consecutive reg-
ular-season home games,
but hasn't won a postsea-
son contest at Gillette in
three years after going
8-0 in home playoff games
since becoming a starter
in 2001.
He's raring to go Sunday.
"Not that you need any
more satisfaction to win
a game like this because
it's the biggest game we've
played all season," Brady
The Jets won the first
meeting, back in Week 2,
28-14, befuddling Brady
with blitzes and pressure
in the second half. These
Patriots are a much dif-
ferent and improved team
from the one that vis-
ited the Meadowlands in
Yes, the Jets are better,
too. Not nearly enough,

Green Bay (plus 1%) at
If Green Bay (11-6) had
been able to run the ball in

the 20-17 loss at the Georgia
Dome on Nov. 28, it likely
would have won. But the
Packers were held to 77
yards rushing, with quar-
terback Aaron Rodgers the
leader with 51. That's never
a good thing on a pass-ori-
ented team.
Rodgers also was 26 of 35
for 344 yards with one TD
and no interceptions in that
game. He did have a key
fumble near the Atlanta goal
line in the second quarter.
"That's definitely some-
thing I remember from that
game," he said.
The Falcons had a few
games like that this sea-
son, close affairs that they
won with clutch defense or
timely scoring. In going 13-
3 for home-field advantage
in the NFC, they ranked
just 16th on offense and
16th on defense, but the
Falcons led the NFC with
a plus-14 turnover margin,
including a conference-low
17 giveaways.
Green Bay should have
plenty of impetus from win-
ning three straight when
one loss would have ended
their season. The Pack
is capable of building on
the wild-card victory at
PACKERS, 23-20

Baltimore (plus 3%) at
If every AFC North meet-
ing between the Ravens and
Steelers is smashmouth,
what is a playoff game
between the bitter foes?
Mega-smashmouth? Super-
"We both finished 12-
4," Baltimore linebacker
Terrell Suggs said. 'That's
why, I think, the stakes are
so much higher, the two
best teams in the NFL. You
can argue Atlanta and New
England ... but anyone can
argue the winner of this

game will most likely to go
on to win the Super Bowl."
Perhaps. But first there
is the spiciest matchup
of this weekend, at Heinz
Field, where the Ravens
have never won in the
postseason. They did edge
the Steelers there 17-14 on
Oct. 3, but Steelers QB Ben
Roethlisberger still was
serving his four-game sus-
Pittsburgh won the
rematch in December, 13-
10 in a classic defensive
battle. This one also should
be low-scoring, physi-
cal and, at times, brutal.
With Baltimore's upgraded
offense capable of moving
the ball through the air,
Steelers star safety Troy
Polamalu's contributions
become even more inipor-
Suggs and company take
one more step toward that
Super Bowl.
RAVENS, 17-16

Seattle (plus 9%)/ at
Yes, the Seahawks (8-9)
have the momentum after
becoming the first team
with a losing record to win
a playoff game, a 41-36
stunner over the defending
champion Saints. Seattle
can't take the 12th Man
with it to Chicago, where
the elements will be more
of a factor than in their reg-
ular-season victory.
Awaiting the Seahawks
is a Bears team that has
improved throughout the
year, particularly in the
final two months of the
schedule. Chicago's 11-5
record is no fluke, while
Seattle's advancement prob-
ably was.

Wife takes weight loss

to a dangerous extreme

DEAR ABBY: My wife
went on a diet a year ago and
lost a tremendous amount of
weight The problem now is
she won't quit. Every time
I suggest she stop and put a
few pounds back on, she gets
angry and won't speak to me.
My wife isn't anorexic, but
I have a feeling she may be
headed in that direction. She
has no health concerns that
either of us is aware of, and
when I say anything she just
says, "You wanted me thin, so
now I'm thin!"
Please tell me what I should
do before her dieting gets out
of control and becomes a se-
rious threat to her health. -
Your wife may have worked
so hard to lose the weight
you urged her to lose that she
hasn't figured out how to sta-
bilize and maintain it. Because
you are worried that she may
have gone off the deep end,
the two of you should make
an appointment with her doc-
tor to discuss what a healthy
weight is for her and possi-
bly get a referral to a licensed
nutritionist who can help her
establish a healthy mainte-
nance plan.
DEAR ABBY: My hus-
band's sister, "Irma," has hurt
us with her words and actions
many times. When the drama
is over, she will suddenly send
an e-mail saying she "misses"
my husband and me. I do not

Abigail Van Buren
want to seem like an unforgiv-
ing person, but I'm tired of
this repeated behavior. My
husband and I feel we're bet-
ter off not socializing with her
and my bother-in-law, but if I
respond to her e-mail, it just
opens the door for yet anoth-
er incident. How can we clear
the air but not leave ourselves
open for another attack?
feelings are understandable,.
but this is your sister-in-law
- so you can't dodge her
forever. This doesn't mean
you must see her often. When
you do, take an emotional
step backward and treat her
with the same respect and
degree of closeness that
you would any other acquain-
tance. When she acts out, ab-
sent yourself.
The woman appears to
have poor impulse control
and a high degree of volatility.
And that's a subject that your
husband might approach
(privately) with his brother-
in-law and you should stay

away from. Your brother-in-
law might be more receptive
to the message if he hears it
from his wife's brother.
DEAR ABBY: I have been
spending more time than usu-
al in doctors' offices now that
I care for my elderly father.
Lately, a lot of these offices
have added TVs to their wait-
ing rooms.
The sets are invariably
tuned to 24-hour news chan-
nels on which combative
* people yell at each other. I
think this is a bad choice for
sick people. Subjecting them
to this kind of programming
can only raise their blood
pressure. If the televisions
have to be there, they should
show calmer programming,
like shows about food and
cooking, homes and gardens,
science or history.
I have tried making this
point to the various health
care professionals, but they
look at me like I'm from Mars.
Am I overreacting? TIRED
ING HEADS: Yes, you are.
The next time you encounter
this situation with your father,
ask the receptionist to please
change the channel and I'm
sure you will be accommo-
