“She is very distraught and
is not taking it very.well,”
according to a close friend.

Rajish Cox, the’ baby’s
father, was teary eyed after
visiting with his baby’s moth-

er in the hospital. He was
accompanied by several peo-
ple, including his sister, who
was wiping tears from her
eyes.

“I don’t know what hap-
pened, but I was told that my
son ‘is dead,” he said.

Firefighters were called toa -

BIC DEAL OPPONENTS IN TOP JOB FOR FOREIGNER CLAIMS

NOELLE NICOLLS

OPPONENTS of the Cable and Wireless
Communications (CWC) takeover of the
Bahamas Telecommunication Company
(BTC) are claiming an advertised senior posi-
tion in the company will be going to a for-
eigner, and not a Bahamian.

And they say this is an example of how
CWC will not be committed to using Bahami-
an talent.

However, a seniot cwc official refuted
the allegations and explained that the adver-

~ tised salary for an interim head of communi-

cations post with the company in the
Bahamas is “incorrect.”

Lachlan Johnston, CWC communications
director, said the salary quoted as $975 per
day is a “mistake,” and he gathers “it is being
addressed. right away.”

Climate change a major threat to Bahamas, Say Greenpeace activists

By CELESTE NIXON
Tribune Staff Reporter
cnixon@tribunemedia.net

GREENPEACE activists, cur-
rently docked in Nassau on one of
the environmental group’s ships, say
climate change is a major threat to

. the Bahamas.

According to Joel Stewart, a 22-
year veteran of the organisation and
captain of Greenpeace’s “Arctic

Sunrise” icebreaker ship, climate

change is very serious issue for a
maritime state like the Bahamas.
The Arctic Sunrise, docked in the
harbour for maintenance and crew
changes, allowed The Tribune

aboard to discuss Greenpeace’s envi-

ronmental campaigns and the possi-
ble impact of global warming on the
Bahamas. -

Climate change, which is attrib--

uted to global warming, is an

increase in the average temperature —
of Earth's near-surface air and

oceans caused by increasing con-

centrations of greenhouse gases like
carbon dioxide (CO2), which scien-
tists and activists say results from
human activity such as the burning
of fossil fuels.

Specific effects of climate change

that could impact the Bahamas
‘include: rising sea levels; increase in

the intensity.and frequency of hur-
ricanes; coral bleaching; and acidifi-

‘ cation of the atmosphere and in turn,

the ocean. .
According to.Captain Stewart,
plankton absorb CO2 from the

~ atmosphere and release oxygen into

the water making it more acidic. The
acidic water dissolves the shells of
carbonic animals such as crabs, oys-
ters and more important to the
Bahamas, corals and reefs,

He said: “Climate change is a.

severe threat to global security — we
must find a new energy methods i in
order to reduce CO2 emissions”

It is important for the’ Bahamas
to phase out the use of fossil fuel
and invest in clean energy sources

such as salar and wind power, both
of which are abundant in the
Bahamas, said Cpt Stewart.
Increasing the volume of marine
reserves would also be a logical step
in the protection and conservation of
the Bahamian marine environment.
Regulating the reserves in par-
tially sensitive sea areas (PSSA),

which makes them off limits to large

fishing boats, cargo and cruise ships,
would decrease potentially damaging

human interaction with the fragile

marine life.
Recycling
Cpt Stewart went on to suggest

the creation of a recycling system.
He said: “Recycling is easy.and can

‘be mutually beneficial. It would be a
_ way to reduce the country’s carbon

footprint and is an easy way to save
money in the disposal of garbage
and waste”.

He emphasised the point that it is
not too late to reverse the effects of

climate sian: the key being a

proactive approach to the environ-
ment.

“There is a road map/plan that
will phase out the use of fossil fuels
and introduce clean alternative ener-
gy sources without destroying the:
economy; everyone just needs to get
on board” he said.

The main goal is to reduce atmos-
pheric CO2 to 350 parts per million.
The atmospheric CO2 is currently
387 parts per million, which com-
pared to the pre-industrial age’s 280
parts per million, is a huge increase.

Once atmospheric CO2 reaches a
certain level, the effects will be irre-
versible.

He said: “Just because the
Bahamas is a small country does not
mean it cannot make a difference
and have a global impact”.

Cpt Stewart explained that the
Bahamas may also be effected by
the Deepwater Horizon oil spill (also
known as the BP oil spill), as dis-
bursement agents were used on the

.

some 205.8 million pallons of crude
oil that was released into the ocean
over a three month period.

He said: “It will probably be 10
years before we can understand the
full environmental effects of that dis-
aster and the possibility of the cur-
rents pushing the oil into Caribbean
waters is very real.”

The Arctic Sunrise and its crew
were recently at a United Nations
Climate Change Conference in Can-
cun, Mexico liaising with other Non-
Governmental Organisations.

Prior to the Cancun conference,
the ship was in the Gulf of Mexico
assisting with scientific research on
the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the
largest accidental marine oil spill in
history. .

_ The ship is scheduled to leave
Nassau Harbour on ‘Tuesday, when
it will set sail for the United States
and begin 'a US tour campaigning
for the close of old coal-powered
power plants that are not up to cur-
rent EPA air emissions standards.

Polarised Congress as US seeks pragmatism

WASHINGTON (AP):— There's an inher-
ent conflict in the country's new political real-
ity: a much more polarized Congress must
answer to an increasingly powerful centre of
the electorate that abhors partisanship or risk
its wrath in 2012.

Much like President Bill Clinton after his
party's disastrous 1994 elections, President
Barack Obama now has the chance to shift to
the middle as leaders on Capitol Hill struggle to
strike a balance between the desires of ideo-
logical purists in their ranks and the indepen-
dent, centrist voters who played a significant
role in electing them.

-For Republicans and Democrats, that task
began Wednesday when the new Congress was
sworn in; Republicans assumed control of the
House and padded their numbers in the Demo-
cratic-led Senate. "There's going to be polli-
tics. That's what happens in Washington. They
are going to play to their base for a certain
period: of time. But I'm pretty. confident that
they're going to recognize that our job is to
govern. My hope is that John Boehner and
Mitch McConnell will realize that there will
be plenty of time to campaign for 2012 in 2012,"
President Obama said this week about GOP
leaders in the House and Senate, casting him-
self as the compromiser in chief even while
manoeuvring for his upcoming re-election.

The president's tone was in stark contrast to

his first two years when he leveraged large
Democratic majorities in Congress — and
thwarted Republicans — to enact sweeping
laws, including an economic stimulus measure
and revamps of the health care and financial
regulatory systems, that independents greet-
ed sceptically if not derisively. After backing
him heavily in his presidential bid, they pun-
ished him in November by ending one-party
rule in Washington. ‘

Now, with no serious Democratic primary
challenger- emerging to siphon support from
his liberal base, Obama already has begun
moving to the centre. As 2010 ended, he com-
promised with Republicans to reach biparti-
san deals on tax‘cuts that paved the way for a
rush of end of year legislation, including repeal-
ing the ban on gays openly serving in the mili-
tary as well as a new nuclear treaty with Russia.

It's clear the 2012 elections are in every-
one's sights with obvious objectives: Obama
needs to win back middle-of-the-road voters,
and Republicans need to keep them happy, or
at least not anger them.

. Their power was strongly felt in the last
three elections. If 2006 and 2008, indepen-
dents furious with Republican governance. gave
Democrats power in Congress and the White
House. By 2010, these, voters had grown disil-
lusioned by Democratic rule and sided with
the GOP. And their sway is only growing.

Today; more Americans are identifying
themselves as independent while majorities of
the country view both the Democratic and
Reputlican parties unfavourably. Disaffected
Republican and Democratic operatives are
forming groups to advocate on behalf of — if

not organize — unaffiliated voters, indicating
that momentum may be building among the
centre for increased political action.

So, given all that, how did the Republican
and Democratic caucuses in Congress end up
so much more conservative and liberal?

The two-party American political system
produces polarization in Congress. Both the

Republican and the Democratic parties hold '

primaries to choose general election candi-
dates. Those nominating contests are domi-
nated by the most vocal, active party mem-
‘bers — conservatives and liberals who tend to
support like-minded people.

Last year, that situation was even more pro-

nounced as the tea party coalition roiled GOP. |

primaries and produced Republican nominees

who were far more conservative than usual.
Now, the House Republican roster includes

some seven dozen tea party-backed lawmakers

and other staunch conservatives. And moder- -

ate "Blue Dog" Democrats are virtually extinct;
‘scores lost their swing-voting districts.in a coast-
to-coast GOP wave. "It's a. more polarized
House representing an electorate that is really
seeking moderation," said Matt Bennett, a for-
mer Clinton aide and a vice president of the
ceritrist Demociatic group Third. Way.

The Senate is arguably less polarized than
the House; Democrats succeeded in limiting the
number of GOP takeaways to six.

From the outset, it's clear that Boehner is
trying to strike a balance between his con-
stituents and his members. »

Still, in a nod to his caucus' right flank, he

scheduled a vote next week on repealing the |

health care law. Republicans don't expect.to
kill it. It makes sense for them not to; the GOP
wants to run against health care-in 2012 and
that important constituency — independents —
prefer that the law be changed, not repealed.
House leaders facing demands from the right to
immediately cut spending also indicated they

wanted to;cut»$100«billion from*the federal:

budget. But it didn't take long before GOP
leaders bowed to the reality. of governing and
scaled back their goal. Come February, during
debate over a massive spending bill to keep

the government running, the country will see |

how successful Boehner has been at keeping
the right in line and how much Qbama is will-

. ing to compromise. The challenge for Boehner

is to avoid what happened after the 1994
Republican Revolution when the GOP took
control of Congress.

Back then, House Speaker Newt Gingrich
failed to keep his rabble-rousing conservative
warriors in line, leading to a government shut-
down. Clinton came out on top, and handily

_ won re-election in 1996: Obama already has sig-

naled a desire to go the route of Clinton, sig-
naling a willingness to work with Republicans
on several issues. On Day 1 of the new. Con-
gress, the fight for middle-of-the-road voters
was well under way. It won't end until Novem-
ber 2012.

how can any suitor make an

am ashamed listening to some

of the rhetoric of the officials |

of the FNM government.and
persons who hold appointed

Baha Mar - Oh how many
months and weeks this was

ister makes sure Baha Mar
pays all their outstanding bills
before we sign-off on the

two political personalities to
take their final bow and move

on, but, oh Lord, dem are so

stubborn.

Freedom of Information —
if there is one single item of
legislation that is required it is
this — in the upcoming Gen-

2011 we further need to vote
on a Constitutional Amend-

power of the voter to remove
his/her MP with a vote of 50 +
1 per cent of the number of
voters who voted at the elec-
tion. The budget should be
required by law to be a bal-
anced budget so as to finally
stop deficits and wild bor-
rowings.

There is a further major
issue: We have no alternative ©
but to reduce the cost of living
— doing business and the so-
called services we offer:

Will 2011 bring an
improved Bahamas? Yes it

«will. I doubt the murder will’

drop too much; but it will be a

bour Island elected council.
Dear Sirs,
Are you all really going to
stand by and watch Harbour
Island be ruined by constant

power outages and now ram- ,

pant crime?

Is it possible that none of
you really care about this (what
used to be the jewel in the

crown) island and are more.

interested in your own agen-
da's than in the health and wel-
fare of the Bahamian people

_and foreigners who live here?
Ihave lived here for 11 years ~

now and have seen this island
through two governments go
down hill. .With all of the
growth and foreign investment
that has gone on here in those
11 years we should not be suf-
fering with electricity going off
four and five times an hour.
We should not have to put
up with the-few electrical appli-

|}. ances that some can barely
- afford being burned up.

We should not have to put
up with a less than efficient
police force and an even worse
chief inspector.

We should not have to put
up with the dreadful local court
system with a magistrate that
allows repeated postponements

of trials and gives bail t:: repeat
offenders of robberies.

I am beyond sick of being
ignored like an outside child.
The only time we see any of
our elected officials, including
the Prime Minister and MP
Alvin Smith is during regatta
or near election time when they
decide to show up and parade .
around shaking the hands of
the poor people who seem so
glad to have a bone thrown to
them.

Mr. Prime Minister I was
recently in Nassau and have
never seen it look so good. Is
there some reason this island
with a large tax base can't be as
well taken care of?

Do all of you plan to contin-
ue ignoring us until the next
election when.you might need
our votes?

In the meantime watch the
foreign investment and foreign
home owners slip away.

IT CAN HAPPEN, HERE.

ly disgusted resident and home-

Questions about Junkanoo

EDITOR, The Tribune.

Has Junkanoo become “a tale of two rivals,” namely, the Val-
ley Boys and the Saxon Superstars?

Are the Valley Boys and the Saxons really “head and shoul-
ders” above the rest or do we have serious discrepancies with-

7 in our judging system?

Have we completely exhausted over 500 years of a nation’s
history and culture or has Junkanoo been secretly “for-

eignized?”

By its constant presentation of alien themes is Junkanoo in
danger of losing its place as the nation’s premier cultural fes-

tival?

How did the Boxing Day Junkanoo Parade themes promote
or enhance Bahamian history or culture?
Did the judges rob One Family and/or the Valley Boys in

favour of the Saxons?

BisHopP SIMEON HALL TAKES AIM AT POLITICIANS FROM BOTH MAIN PARTIES

‘Time to lift Majority Rule
Day to proper national level’





OUTSPOKEN Bishop Simeon Hall
has, chastised politicians for prevent-
ing Majority Rule Day from living up
to its true meaning and importance.

‘In a statement issued yesterday, the
former Christian Council president
lamented the fact that the concept of
Majority Rule has not been allowed
to “rise above” its association with the
PLP — the party which led in its
achievement.

He added: “It is equally unfortunate
that the governing Free National
Movement continues to ignore or fails
to recognise the factuality and efficacy
of this defining historical event in
Bahamian History.”

Bishop Hall emphasised that Major-
ity Rule helped all Bahamians.

“The black masses and the white

minority were all freed from the awk-"

ward inequities of our ruthless, ungod-
ly, evil, colonial past, ” he said.
“While there is still more land to be
possessed we have come a long way.
“Regardless of the transient. political

labels we presently wear, we ought to

all recognise that January 10, 1967 was

indeed the defining moment in our life-
time, politically, socially and econom-
ically. It is time to lift this day to its
proper national level.”

Bishop Hall acknowledged that for-
mer prime minister Sir Lynden Pin-
dling is to be.credited and celebrated
for doing “far more for the psycholog-
ical ‘liberation of Bahamians.. . than
any other politician: — past and pre-
sent.”

Hurdle

In fact, he said, political parties con-
tinue to be “the major hurdle to bring-
ing about a spirit of One Bahamas”.

Meanwhile, the opposition PLP’s
Grand Bahama branch announced that
it will once again commemorate Major-
ity Rule Day-with a series of events
on that island.

These will begin on Stiriday, Janu-



ary 9, with a prayer breakfast to be
held at the Our Lucaya Resort at
7.30am. Party official Carolyn
Kinglocke said: “Majority Rule is the
singular event in Bahamian history that
played a significant role in shaping the
modern Bahamas we experience today.

“The significant events: leading up
and emanating from Majority Rule
must become permanently etched in
the Bahamian historical landscape as
these events define us as a people,
reveal what we believe in as Bahami-
ans, and serve as a constant reminder
to us of our vision and values.”

Mrs Kinglocke said that the history
of Majority Rule and what it means
for Bahamians today will be among
the topics discussed on Sunday.

On Monday, January 10 in Nassau,
the‘Bain and Grants Town Advance-
ment Association will host a Majority
Rule Day Service at St John’s Native
Baptist Church on Meeting Street,

. beginning at 7.30pm.

BEC team to investigate and repair power outages in Harbour Island, North Eleuthera

A BEC team from New
Providence has been sent to
Eleuthera to get to the bot-
tom of and repair the causes
for the power outages which
have been plaguing Harbour
Island and North Eleuthera.

The Corporation said it is
currently conducting an
island-wide review of its dis-

tribution and generation sys-.

tems to correct the causes of a
series of power outages which
occurred between Saturday,
January 1, and Friday, Janu-
ary 7.

A team from New Provi-
dence is currently in

Eleuthera troubleshooting the °

systems along with the on-
island team, BEC said.
Over the Christmas and

New Year’s holidays, business
owners and residents of Har-
bour Island said they were
plagued by frequent power
outages due to problems at
the BEC’s North Eleuthera

_ plant.

Although most hotel prop-
erties on the island used their
back-up generators and there-
by were able to prevent a loss
of business, power outages
have been a nuisance to resi-
dents for many years now.

Having explored the causes
for last week’s outages, BEC
reported that on Saturday,
January 1, a circuit breaker
tripped around noon, causing
an island-wide power outage
that also affected Harbour
Island. BEC’s on-island team

BA
BUSINESS
OUTLOOK

corrected the problem and
electricity was fully restored
by 4.30pm. Between Monday,
January 3 and Friday, January
7 there were a series.of gen-
erator trips at the Hatchet
Bay power station and the
Harbour Island power station.

This resulted in numerous
outages, mostly affecting res-
idents and businesses in North
Eleuthera and Harbour
Island, BEC said.

Feeder

Distribution problems were
exacerbated by the failure of
the north feeder breaker at
Hatchet Bay.

With this feeder inopera-
ble, most of the island



depended solely on the south
feeder at Hatchet Bay and
when challenges on this par-
ticular feeder occurred, wide-
spread outages were the
result. BEC said it intends to
repair the north feeder break-
er within the next two weeks.
_ As it concerns the island-
wide outage on Boxing Day,
BEC said a catastrophic mal-
function of one of four new
generators was to blame.
“As the Hatchet Bay Pow-

er Station is still going through _

its reliability testing phase, the
manufacturers of the genera-
tors are already on-site and
should be responsible for the
failed generator’s subsequent
repair or replacement.

“The failure of this particu-

2.0.4 4

lar generator is unrelated to”

any of the sporadic outages

- experienced since January 1.

Similarly, the failed genera-
tor has not hampered the gen-
eration of adequate electrici-
ty to the North Eleuthera and
Harbour Island areas,” BEC
saidinastatement. — .

BEC said they would like
to ensure. its customers in
Eleuthera that they are work-
ing quickly to resolve the
issues. “The corporation is

requesting the patience of

Eleuthera residents, especial-
ly those in North Eleuthera
and Harbour: Island, as it
takes corrective measures to
return a continuous electrici-
ty supply to its Eleuthera cus-:
tomers.”

advocates of professional standards within the marketing
profession and have extensive experience of senior busi-
ness leadership, academia or marketing consulting, the
TACMP said.

The participation in the Council enables members to

Internationally Accepted Marketing Standards (IAMS)

Handbook which will contain a description of internation-
ally accepted marketing practices.

Leaders of the Council will be Dr Sofia Daskou of
Greece; Dr Phi Van Nguyen of Vietnam; Dr Sofiane Achi

FATAL FIRE: Firemen and police are seen at a residence in the Sunset Subdivision where fire
claimed the life of a one-year-old toddler on Friday morning. Police received a call shortly after 8am
and dispatched a two fire units to the scene.

tant Superintendent Loretta Mackey said the

fire was confined to the wash room which was

situated in the front, east side of the house.
“After the fire was extinguished, the body of

a child was discovered by firemen on the floor,

near tlie wash room door,”

ASP Mackey said police have not officially
released the child’s identity. She said an autop-
sy will be conducted to determine the cause of
death. Investigations are continuing into the
cause of the tragedy.

TRADE UNIONS CONGRESS T0 MARK 1958 GENERAL STRIKE

ation of the Labour Depart:
ment.

It is also Gétlited with influ-
encing Allan Lennox Boyd,
then Secretary of State for the
Colonies, to order the first
constitutional steps toward
Majority Rule for the
Bahamas.

While the NCTU’s state-
ment made no mention of the
government’s current plan to
sell BTC to Cable and Wire-
less, several union leaders
have threatened to protest the
deal by orchestrating a strike
rivaling the 1958 upheaval.

This week, State Finance
Minister Zhivargo Laing hit
back at these union bosses,
saying their threats display
their “arroganet



extent of a threat of national
strike, to the extent of going
down to Bay Street. They say,
'I know better than the whole
country, I know better than
' the prime minister and the

government, we Know what
is good and right'.”

He also noted that the
unions are. decrying the deal
but declined to meet with
David Shaw, CEO of the pur-
chaser Cable and Wireless,
for discussions late last year.

As for BTC's privatisation,

Mr Laing reasoned that the
sale is crucial in order for

BTC to compete in a com-
pletely open telecommunica-
tions sector. -

"In terms of BTC, privati-
sation of telecommunications
is fundamental to pushing ‘us
toward, realising our poten-

-tial. This is what we have to
‘get, the big gain to the





Bahamian population,"

Bahamian people is in a lib-
eral telecommunications sec-
tor. Liberal meaning no law of
the Bahamas bars a Bahami-

an from providing a telecom-

ni cations: service to the
said
Mr Laing.

"When we liberalise it, you
and others get to compete to
serve the Bahamian public.
That competition makes you
better off, that liberalising

also provides the economy
with more products and ser-
vices at levels that allows the

enterprises in it to compete.

better and make the econo-

_my of the Bahamas more

competitive."

BTC's markets will become
fully liberalised after the expi-
ration of its cellular monopoly
three years from the date-of
privatisation.

According to Mr Laing, if
the industry were to be com-

pletely liberalised today,

BTC's assets would plummet.

"We have an asset called
BTC, if I liberalise the sector
today that asset will be deci-
mated in BTC's current situ-
ation. There is no question
about that, even BTC's own
internal research tells them —
forget privatisation, in a lib-

eralised environment you will. ....
have to instantly reduce your -

staffing by the order of 25:to

30 per.cent in order to be able

to compete. So that is why pri-
vatisation has to be pursued
before (liberalisation)," he
said.

Sands has Pinder in his election sights

FROM page one

recent addition to the House '

of Assembly for his “national
campaigning,” Dr Sands claims
Mr Pinder has failed to provide
any proper representation for
the people of Elizabeth.

“Tf he is unwilling or unpre-
pared to do that task, I would
imagine that the people of Eliz-
abeth will put him aside. It is
my goal that he will set a record
for the shortest tenure in the
House of Assembly,” Dr Sands
said yesterday.

In response to Dr Sands, Mr
Pinder told The Tribune yes-
terday he has been representing
the people of Elizabeth fully
and has provided a number of
opportunities for them in his
short time in office.

“T ‘have defeated Dr Sands
in the by-election when all the
odds were against me, and I will
certainly defeat him again when
the general election is called, ”
he said.

Having lost the by-election
by a razor-thin margin of only
three votes, Dr Sands said he
has taken full responsibility for
the loss. However, he assured
the public he has learned from
this exercise and is working tire-
lessly to counteract any of the
perceived or learned challenges
that they had.

“Ultimately, I think the mes-
sage I have gotten from many
people is that they want to
know you care, that you are
concerned, and that you will do
what you can do to intercede
on their behalf. So I have been
doing that.



“I can

an effort to
help thent access the job mar-
ket. I had the good fortune of
being able to congratulate a
young lady who was able to
secure a job, and I think that is
what itis all about. It’s effort
directed at people,” he.said.
Currently, Mr Pinder is per-
ceived by many within the PLP
as having the largest new-found
public appeal in the party, and

as such, has shot up through .

the ranks of the organisation.
He can often be seen at vari-
ous social or political events
with the “top brass” of the par-
ty in tow.

Noting this manoeuvre, Dr
Sands said he thought that pol-
itics in the Bahamas had moved
beyond this type of showman-
ship.

_ “There is probably a bit of a_

role for that, but what is your
primary function? Your prima-
ry function is representation of
the people that put you in the
House of Assembly. If you lose
sight of that prize, the people
will remind you in very short
order that you have taken your
eye off the ball.:

“I certainly believe he has

many detainees took part in the incident, but police were said to
have a Cuban man and two Haitians in custody last night.

Guards fired a number of warning shots in the air before fir-
ing rubber bullets at those thought to be the main offenders.

A Haitian man was hit in the back, the senior officer said,
and a Cuban man “in the buttocks.”

The only damage caused by the fight was to a pipe running to
the main water heater, which staff were said to be repairing last

night.

while that has provided me with
a strategic advantage I am dis-
appointed, because the people
in Elizabeth were really count-
ing on a different kind of poli-
tics, a different kind of repre-

sentation, and I think they have —

been short changed once
again, ” he said. ;

To his criticisms of “show-
manship” Mr Pinder said politi-
cians today must realise that
not every voter will visit an
MP’s office and as such they
should venture out to the peo-
ple to meet and greet them
wherever they may be.

Grand Bahama schools may pull S'U®8s

‘out of BAAA upcoming events



P § there some type of con-
‘spiracy brewing between
New Providence and Grand
Bahama?

Two major sporting bodies are
reportedly ; going to be affected by the
absence of teams from Grand Bahama
as they. express their disappointment in
the manner‘in which they have been
treated.

The Grand Bahama schools have
reportedly decided that they won’t come
to town to participate in any Bahamas
Association, of Athletic Associations’
school'events, namely the National High
School Track and Field Championships
that is scheduled for March.

‘. The reason being: The schools col-
lectively are voicing their disapproval in
the BAAA’s:suspending two of their
coachés for what they called an infrac-
tion of the rules at the Penn Relays last
year in Philadelphia.

:“sBut before that, the schools have also
_ voiced their grievances in the'manner in
which. they have been treated at the
prestigious Hugh Campbell Basketball
Classic and have jointly indicated that
they. won't be ‘coming here in Febru-





ary.

“ Nobody, thelading the organisers and
the fans; who pay their money, want to
come out:to an-event and not get to see
the best athletes in action from through-
out the country.

‘There should be no argument, but
anytime in t any, event that you don’t




have the participation of Grand
Bahama, it takes away from the luster of
the competition.

In the case of the Hugh Campbell
organizers at the AF Adderley Junior
High School, they will have to find a
way to ensure that there is some partic-
ipation from Grand Bahama in oe tour-
nament.

The invitational tournament, which,
serves as a fundraiser for AF ‘Adder-
ley Jr. High, does‘not attract all of.the
top private schools in New Providence
and to have the Grand Bahama pull
out will definitely diminish the level of
competition.

For years, the schools from Grand
Bahama have complained about the
make up of the pools and the fact that
they don’t receive enough compensation
from the organisers.

The schools, however, have to realise
that.the tournament is an invitational
one and the organisers have the right to
provide remuneration to the partici-
pants if they so desire.

Hopefully, some compromise can be
worked out between the parties con-
cerned so that the tournament continues
to be a success and a delight for the
fans to enjoy.

- As for the dilemma between the ‘

‘BAAA and the Grand Bahama schools,

it’s a pity that the latter is taking the
stance to boycott any team events
because of the coaches’ suspension.
The BAAA may not be as adversely
affected like the Hugh Campbell

because there is sufficient talent on dis-
play from the participating schools in
New Providence.

But for the continued growth and
development of any sport, you want to
see the best talent on display at all times.
The BAAA’s Nationals is no excep-
tion.

Let’s hope that whatever: the differ-
ences between the parties concerned in
New Providence and those in Grand
Bahama, a meeting of the minds will
take place with the view of resolving
them.

In the case of both the Hugh Camp-
bell and the National High School
Championships, it’s the athletes who in
the long run will suffer because they
won't get the opportunity to display
their skills against the best that the
country has to offer.

Addition to all of that, the Govern-
ment Secondary Schools Sports Asso-
ciation have indicated that they intend
to indefinitely suspend its sports pro-
gramme if their coaches are not paid
for their after-school services.

That would certainly be a shame
because the move could have a trickling
effect on events like Hugh Campbell
and the BAAA’s Nationals in the long
run.

It’s only one week gone so far in the
new year, yet there are so many prob-
lems brewing that one only have to
wonder if there are any alternative
motions in the works.

We will wait and see.

wanted the Bahamas Gov-
ernment to do for them.

He noted that they asked
to pay,a Courtesy Call on
Governor General, Sir
Arthur Fawkes, they wanted
the team’s photo mounted on
the Wall of Fame at the Lyn-
den Pindling International
Airport and they wanted
Yamacraw Beach Way
renamed Freedom Farm
Highway or Freedom Farm
Road.

Maynard said while Free-
dom Farm was given the
opportunity to take advan-
tage of the initial request,
they’re still working on ful-
filling the other two.

“The celebrations contin-

e,” Maynard stressed. “I

_ don’t think the celebrations

should just be a:one day
affair. I think it should be an
on going event.

“This type of event, in
terms of the accomplishment,
is something that is going to
inspire generations of young
people behind them, so we
have to continue’ to hold
them up high.”

Before the unveiling of the
van, Cash Sr. presented Bur-
rows Sr. with a cheque to
assist with the further devel-
opment of the programme at
Freedom Farm.

Lowe’s Wholesale, accord-
ing to Burrows Sr., was the
initial sponsor of the pro-.
gramme when he got it start-
ed and he’s delighted that
even now as they are attain-
ing international success, the
company is still supporting
them.

“The best ways of trying to’ .
keep these young people from
going astray is through sports .
and so’"we want to continue
to do our part to help in their
development,” Cash Sr. said.

Burrows Sr., calling Lowe’s
Wholesale the mother of
Freedom Farm (in terms of
their sponsorship), said when
there was nobody else to turn
too, they came.to his, rescue.

“Every time Mr Cash see
us, he helps us out. So we’re
hoping that his son, William
Jr., will try it going because
‘they understand the youth
idevelopment and they have’
‘been doing that for years.”

Looking at the final prod-
uct on the van, Burrows Sr.
said it’s the first time that he’s
seen a local company cele-
brated a team’s feat and they
are now Lowe’s Wholesale is
a part of history, just as Free-
dom Farm.

Cash Jr said they watched
Burrows Sr’s persistence in.
developing Freedom Farm
and that was one of the main
reasons why they:continue to
support the programme and
putting the team in the fore-
front.

Burrows Jr. said they are
thankful that people are still

a showing their appreciation to

the team because “they
deserve it and I hope they
continue to relish the
moment as days go by.”

Like everybody present,
including workers at Lowe’s,
parents and family members
of the players, along with
baseball players, Burrows Jr
and Cox expressed their
delight in the way the van was
displayed.

“It’s very positive. It was
wonderful to see corporate
Bahamas get involved the
way they did,” he said. “I
think this. will contribute to
the future generation fulfill-
ing their dreams.”

Freedom Farm have vowed
that all of the accolades they
have received so far will only
inspire them to continue to
press on to achieve bigger
and better things in the
future.

ire Evans helps Kings rout gels |

Sacramento Kings’ Francisco Garcia, left, and Jason Thompson during the first
halt of an NBA basket gamne in Sacramento, Calif., UISG ad dan. 6; 2011. (AP)

SACRAMENTO, Calif.
Associated Press

TYREKE Evans has found his
game.

The NBA rookie of the year last
season, the Sacramento guard had 27
points and a season- high 12 assists to

help the Kings rout the Denver’

Nugeets 122-102 on Thursday night.
' Evans has struggled for much of
the season with foot problems and
admitted last month that some family
issues were a factor as well. Against
the. Nuggets, he played effectively

throughout, a flashback to his rookie °

season when he was difficult to stop
_ ona nightly basis.

Evans frequently penetrated the

soft Denver defense on drives and
made 11 of 18 shots, hit all five free
throws and added five rebounds.

"It was one of my best games. I
came out and was aggressive," Evans
said. "I was attacking and definitely
had them on their heels."

- It was second consecutive game
where Evans demonstrated his unique
ability to get the basket and finish in
traffic. He had 29 points and eight
assists Tuesday night in a loss to
Atlanta.

"Tyreke looked like he had his
quickness back for the second game in

a row," Kings coach Paul Westphal:

said. "He's making a conscious effort
to move the ball and himself quicker.
It shows in the quality of shots the
team is getting."

The Kings had a 23-2 run midway

through the second half to build a 21- .

point lead in their highest-scoring
game of the season. They shot 56 per-

cent and gave Westphal his 300th~

career victory.

The Kings (8-25) beat a team with a
winning record for the first time this
season and left Cleveland (8-27) with
the NBA's worst record.

"We don't believe we're a bad team
even if we have a bad record," West-

phal said. "We played with energy -

and poise for 48 minutes tonight."

DeMarcus Cousins scored 20
points, Beno. Udrih had.17, Carl
Landry 14 and Omri Casspi 13 for the
Kings.

Carmelo Anthony had 26 points for.

$35,000 by NFL

NEW YORK
Associated Press

THE NFL fined Indianapo-

lis Colts linebacker. Gary
Brackett $35,000 Friday for his
hit on Tennessee Titans long

snapper Ken Amato in last

Sunday's game..

Brackett was called for an E

illegal blindside block on

Amato as the linebacker ran. |

toward thé Colts' goal line and
hit the long snapper from the
side in springing Antoine

Bethea for a return off a

missed field goal. Titans coach
Jeff Fisher called the hit
"vicious" and said it cracked
Amato's helmet.

Brackett has now been fined

’ three times this season for ille-

gal hits.

The Colts practiced Friday,
but there was no media avail-
ability...

defended ‘the play, saying, "I
don't think it was malicious at

all. I think it was just a football °

play, and I still think I hit him
with my shoulder first and the
head was secondary." '

The NFL announced sever-
al other fines Friday:

— Baltimore linebacker
Terrell Suggs was fined
$15,000 for striking Bengals
wide receiver Jerome Simp-
son in the face after a play.

_ — New England nose tack-

— Oakland defensive line-
man John Henderson was

fined $7,500 for roughing

As for Brackett's hit, the
competition committee
approved the blocking rule in
March 2009, partially as a
result of a hit Steelers receiver

-Hines Ward made against
Bengals linebacker Keith
Rivers. Rivers broke his jaw
on the play. It is considered
illegal if the blocker hits anoth-
er player in the head or neck
area with the helmet, forearm
or shoulder.

Clearly, Fisher, who serves |

‘on the competition commit-
tee, thought officials got it
right.

"It was probably one of the
most vicious hits that I've ever

15 points and nine assists and the Thunder took |

advantage of the absence of Mavericks scoring
leader Dirk Nowitzki for a 99-95 victory Thursday
night.

Nowitzki is day-to-day and there had been spec-
ulation that he might try-to play against the Thun-
der. The nine-time All-Star, averaging 24.1 points,
has been shooting at practices. Dallas also is miss-
ing No. 3 scorer Caron Butler, out for the season
after tearing a tendon in his right knee:

Jeff Green had 16 points and nine rebounds,
and Serge.Ibaka added 13 points.and eight

. rebounds to help the Thunder avoid their first

three-game losing streak of the season. |

"When you lose two games in a row, it kind of
snowballs and you don't want that to happen,"
Durant said. "And this team (the Mavs) is good at
home, and they didn't have Dirk, their best player,
or Caron, but.they're a fast team and players

stepped up. So. you had to be locked. in fromthe

SNawenty

beginning : and not take this team for sranted, and
I think We did a good job of that." ~

Shawn Marion had a season-high 25 points for
the Mavericks, who were without Nowitzki for a

‘career-high sixth straight game with a sprained

right knee.

Tyson Chandler added 14 points and matched a
season high with 18:rebounds. Jason Terry had 19
points for Dallas, 2-4 during Nowitzki's absence.

"We definitely miss him," Chandler said about

Nowitzki. "Not only down the stretch, but he

changes the entire game. When he's in the game, he
stretches the floor. Guys aren't as willing to help off
of him, he's a big body. He plays great team
defense."

The Mavericks scored only 40 second-half points,
and Dallas' defense:had trouble stopping Okla-
homa City's inside game in the final minutes. The

_ Thunder held a 16-6 fourth-quarter paar in points

in the paint.

"We struggled defensively in the second half,
we struggled on the boards, and (the Thunder' s)
second-chance points were our undoing down the
stretch," Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said.

The Mavericks won the first two matchups

_ between the teams this season, both in Oklahoma

' SEATTLE

ASSOCIATED PRESS

A YEAR ago, the New Orleans
Saints rode the raucous enthusiasm of
the Superdome through the NFC play-
offs to the first Super Bowl title a fran-
chise history.

Hope they waved goodbye to the
Superdome on their way out of town
earlier this week. There's a good chance
if these Saints are going to get all the
way back to the league's title game,
they'll be asked to do it on the road.

‘The first stop on their postseason
road trip, begins Saturday in Seattle,
against the Seahawks in the first round
of the NFC playoffs.

It doesn't quite seem right the

’ defending champs and an 11-win team

this season would be asked to travel
2,000 miles on a short week to face the

first division champs in league history »

with a losing record — and a team the
Saints beat 34-19 in Week 11.

"We all have a formula for getting in.
We all know ahead of time. No one
was upset about it or complaining
about it before the start of the season,"
Saints coach Sean Payton said. "I think
that value of winning your division
means something. Just as a season ago
when the postseason began, the teams
that are in now really are 0-0. That's
just the truth. I think our players under-
stand that more than anything."

But the task in front of the Saints

as the No. 5 seed in the NFC became

seemingly more difficult as the week °

progressed.

There's the second consecutive short
week having played at Atlanta on Dec.
27, losing at home to Tampa Bay last
Sunday and taking off Thursday after
practice to make the five-hour flight

.to Seattle. There's the Pacific North-

west weather, where rain and even a
chance’ of some light snow are being
forecast for Saturday.

There's the Saints history, which tells
the story of a franchise that has never

won, let alone played well, away from -
the Superdome in the playoffs. New ,

Orleans lost 16-6 at Chicago in 1991;
34-16 at Minnesota in 2001; and 39-14
at Chicago in the NFC championship
game four years ago.

Then there's the injuries. Already
this week, the Saints placed. their top
two running backs — Chris Ivory and
Pierre Thomas — on injured reserve.
Only Reggie Bush and Julius Jones
remain as the Saints healthy running
backs from the regular season.

The injury concerns stretch beyond
the backs. Marques Colston, who had
eight catches for 113 yards and two
touchdowns in the first meeting against
Seattle, is listed as probable, but under-
went knee surgery less than two weeks
ago. Safety Malcolm Jenkins is out,
thinning a secondary that allowed 366
yards passing to Seattle earlier this
year.

sisters who will share seay ~oleased



‘

PEARL, Mississippi
Associated Press

TWO sisters whose life sentences
were suspended on the condition that
one donate a kidney to the other were
released from a Mississippi prison on
Friday after serving 16 years for an
armed robbery.

Jamie and Gladys Scott waved to
reporters and yelled,."We're free!"
and "God bless y'all!" as they left the
Central Mississippi Correctional Facil-
ity in a sport utility vehicle.

The sisters are moving to the Florida
Panhandle, where their mother and
grown children. live. Still, the women
have an uncertain future. They still
have to make sure they are a compat-
ible match for the transplant. And they
have to find a way to pay for every-
thing: Their attorney said they will try
to get government-funded Medicaid
insurance to pay for the transplant and
for 36-year-old Jamie Scott's dialysis,
which officials said had cost the state
about $200,000 a year.

First, though, they want to eat a
good meal, said their attorney, Chokwe

WASHINGTON

Lumumba.

"And you know how women are.
They want to get some clothes," he
said, speaking in an open field used
for law enforcement training just across
from the prison on a cold winter morn-
ing.

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour
agreed to release Jamie Scott because
of her medical condition, but 38-year-
old Gladys Scott must donate the kid-

ney within one year as a condition of _

her.release.

However, National Association for
the Advancement of Colored People
President and CEO Benjamin Todd
Jealous has said the governor's office
assured him the transplant condition of
release won't be enforced. —

Barbour's spokesman did not imme-
diately respond Friday to a question
about that. When asked last week if
Gladys Scott would be sent back to
jail if she is not a match or if she
changes her mind, Barbour responded
in a statement: "All of the ‘What if'
questions are, at this point, purely
hypothetical. We'll deal with those sit-
uations if they actually happen."





A few doctors
have expressed
interest in per-
forming — the

there are no firm
plans yet,
Lumumba said.

Some medical
experts said the
arrangement for
the sisters'
release raises
legal and ethical
concerns, but their supporters say
Gladys Scott wants to try to save her
sister's life.

For instance, the condition could be
interpreted as trading an organ for
freedom, which could violate federal
laws against selling organs, said Arthur
Caplan, director of the Center for

Jamie Scott

Bioethics at the University of Penn-

sylvania.

The American Society of Trans-
plantation. called Friday for Barbour
to issue a formal statement saying the
transplant will no longer be tied to the
women's early release from prison.

"The decision
to donate an
organ should be
a truly selfless
act, free from
coercion and not
conditioned on
financial or any
other material
gain," the
group's presi-
dent, Dr. Maryl
R. Johnson, said
in a statement.

The sisters' freedom will allow not
only for a reunion with family, but also
with each other. The two women have
been held recently in different parts
of the prison, and it's unlikely they had
much interaction in the sprawling com-
plex of 13 housing units on 171 acres
(69 hectares) along a rural stretch of
highway in central Mississippi.

US nriest
accused of
pedophilia dies
in Martinique

FORT-DE-FRANCE, Mar-
tinique
Associated Press

A FORMER Roman
Catholic priest who vanished
twice amid accusations that he
sexually abused more than
two dozen children in the
U.S., including in Connecti-
cut, has died in the French
Caribbean island of Mar-
tinique, a hospital official said
Friday.

Laurence Brett died at the
Pierre Zobda Quitman hospi-
tal in the capital of Fort-de-
France on Christmas Eve, said
Joelle Louisor, a hospital
administrator.

Louisor said she did not
know the cause of death. The

' Hartford Courant newspaper

in Connecticut reported he
apparently fell down stairs and
injured his head. The Courant
said he was 73.

Brett disappeared in 1993
and was found by the Courant
in 2002 on the Dutch
Caribbean island of St.
Maarten. The newspaper
reported that he was living in
a villa by a lagoon and that he
had identified himself to
acquaintances as a writer, a
businessman and a CIA agent.

Brett then vanished again.

Two other priests later pub-
licly apologized for keeping
secret Brett's location.

Brett, who was defrocked,
was accused of sexually abus-
ing two dozen altar boys and
others in Connecticut, New
Mexico, California and Mary-
land. The accusations date

back to the 1960s.

The Archdiocese of Balti-
more did not immediately
return a message for comment
but posted a statement on its
website.

"The prayers. of the Arch-
diocese are with the victims

- of Laurence Brett and with all

victims of sexual abuse," it
said. "The Church reiterates

NEWLY discovered documents
have revealed a bizarre footnote to
the history of the Second World
War: a Finnish mutt whose imita-
tion of the Hitler salute enraged the
Nazis so deeply that they started an
obsessive campaign against the dog's
owner.

Absurdly, a totalitarian state that
dominated most of Europe was
unable to do much about Jackie and
his paw-raising parody of Germany's
Fuehrer.

In the middle of World War II —
months before Hitler ordered some
4.5 million troops to invade the Sovi-
et Union — the Foreign Office in
Berlin commanded its diplomats in
the Nazi-friendly Nordic country to
gather evidence on the dog, and
even came up with plans to destroy

pany of its owner.

Historians had not been aware of
the episode before some 30 files con-
taining parts of the correspondence
and diplomatic cables were recently
found by a researcher at the political
archives of the German Foreign
Office.

Klaus Hillenbrand, an expert who
has written several books on the
Nazi period, was contacted by the
historian and examined all of the
documents for an article to be pub-
lished Saturday in daily newspaper
Die Tageszeitung.

In an interview with The Associ-
ated Press, Hillenbrand called the
entire episode "completely bizarre."

"Just months before the Nazis
launched their-attack on the Soviet
Union, they had nothing better to do
than to obsess about this dog," Hil-

New documents: Hitler-mocking dog enraged Nazis

Finland cooperated with Nazi
Germany but the relationship
between the two countries was
strained.

Finland allowed the Nazis to take
over the northern part of the coun-
try after the Finns suffered heavy
casualties and lost 10 percent of their
territory to the Soviet Union in
1939-1940.

After an intense Soviet attack and
heavy bombing of its territory,
including of the capital Helsinki,
Finland made a pact with Germany
in 1944 that lasted two months. Fin-
land then annulled the pact and
made a truce with Moscow that lat-
er led to a peace treaty with the
Soviet Union.

The dog, Jackie, was a mutt
owned by Tor Borg, a businessman
from the Finnish city of Tampere.
Borg's wife Josefine, a German cit-
izen known for her anti-Nazi senti-

ments, dubbed the dog Hitler
because of the strange way it raised
its paw high in the air like Germans
greeting the Fuehrer with a cry of
"Heil Hitler!"

On January 29, 1941, German
Vice Consul Willy Erkelenz in
Helsinki wrote that "a witness, who
does not want to be named, said ...
he saw and heard how Borg's dog
reacted to the command ‘Hitler’ by
raising its paw."

Borg was ordered to the German
embassy in Helsinki and questioned
about his dog's unusual greeting
habits.

He denied ever calling the dog by
the German dictator's name, but
admitted that his wife called the dog
Hitler. He tried to play.down the
accusations, saying the paw-raising
had only happened a few times in
1933 — shortly after Hitler came to
power.

Palestinians: Israeli troops mistakenly kill man

HEBRON, West Bank
Associated Press

ISRAELI troops mistaken-
ly shot and killed a 65-year-
old Palestinian man Friday
during a pre-dawn raid to
arrest a Hamas militant in the
West Bank, Palestinian offi-
cials said.

Late Friday, four Israeli sok: .

ders were wounded in a gun-
battle with Palestinian mili-
tants on the Gaza border,
- Israeli media reported. Israel's
- military confirmed the casual-
ties, but would not elaborate.
Palestinian security and res-
cue officials in the West Bank
city of Hebron said Israeli
troops shot and killed 65-year-
“old Omar Kawasmeh, who

lived in the.same building but
on a different floor as the
Hamas militant targeted in the
raid. The officials spoke on
condition of anonymity
because no official announce-
ment was made.

Associated Press Television
footage showed a bloodstained
bed and shell casings in. the
man's bedroom.

_ The Israeli military said in a
statement that it "regrets the
outcome of the incident" and
was investigating. It said the
wanted militant had been
involved in planning suicide
bombings before his arrest by
the Palestinian Authority two
years ago.

The raid targeted one of six
Hamas fighters released from

ern-backed Palestinian
Authority, the Palestinian offi-
cials said. The militants, who
had launched a hunger strike
to protest their incarceration,
were freed following a series
of high-level contacts between
Hamas officials and Palestin-

. ian Authority officials, as well

as an intervention by the emir
of Qatar.

The Israeli military said five
of the freed militants —
including the target of the raid

in which the man was killed .

— were arrested overnight.
The Western-backed Pales-
tinian Authority has cracked
down on Hamas in areas of
the West Bank under its con-
trol. Hamas, an Islamic group
backed by Iran, runs a com-

in the Gaza Strip.

Hamas regularly condemns
the Palestinian Authority for
its cooperation with Israel,
and did so again after the
man's death Friday. Sami Abu
Zuhri, a Hamas spokesman in
Gaza, said the Palestinian
Authority and Israel were
"equal in their responsibility"

The violence later Friday
along the Gaza border broke
out after Palestinian gunmen
used the cover of heavy rain
to plant bombs along the fron-
tier and then ambush Israeli
soldiers on guard there, Israeli
media reported.

No Palestinian militant
group took responsibility for

two years ago. The campaign
aimed to end years of Pales-
tinian rocket attacks on south-
ern Israel, but rocket fire and
border clashes still occur occa-
sionally. ©

Germany halts nork, egg sales in (lioxin scare

BERLIN ;
Associated Press

GERMANY froze sales of poultry,
pork and eggs from more than 4,700
farms Friday to stem the spread of
food contaminated with cancer-caus-
ing dioxin, as fears grew that farmers
could have been using tainted live-

‘stock feed for months..

South Korea and Slovakia on Fri-
day banned the sale of some animal
products imported from Germany,
while authorities in Britain and the

Netherlands were investigating |

whether food containing German eggs
— like mayonnaise or liquid egg prod-
ucts — was safe to eat.

Prosecutors in the northern state of
Schleswig-Holstein launched an inves-
tigation into the German firm Harles
& Jentzsch GmbH, suspecting the
company knew but failed to tell
authorities that fat it had produced
for use in feed pellets was tainted with

8-16 knots

dioxin. The state agriculture ministry
said Friday it had information that the
company had been producing taint-
ed fat for months — a declaration that
shocked federal officials. ,

"Tf it is confirmed that the company
knew since March that its fat was taint-
ed but it did not inform authorities
than that is highly criminal activity,"
Agriculture Minister Ilse Aigner told
n-tv television.

‘Test results published Friday by the
Schleswig-Holstein agriculture min-

istry showed that some of the fat con-_

tained more than 77 times the

approved amount of dioxin. Out of _

30 samples tested so far, 18 contained
more dioxin than legally allowed, it
said.

Dioxins are contaminants that often

. - result from industrial combustion and

other chemical processes. Exposure
to dioxins at high levels is linked to an
increased incidence of cancer. Dioxin

New Israeli military technology speeds up warfare

SHIVTA ARTILLERY TRAINING
SCHOOL, Israel
Associated Press

INTENSE winds scraped sand from
the desert floor, clouding the view and
leaving the Israeli soldiers scarcely
able to see each other as they prac-

ticed blasting artillery shells at distant

targets.

In a nearby armored vehicle, com- -

manders armed with small screens
could easily monitor every cannon,
jeep and target involved, ordering
strikes with the tap of a finger. Their
weapon: a sophisticated communica-
tion system that compiles battlefield
information in an easy-to-use, video
game-like map interface, helping mil-
itaries make sense of the chaos of bat-
tle.

The Associated Press was given rare
access to the exercise by a military
eager to reclaim some of the deter-
rence it held in the region when tech-
nologically inferior Arab armies were
the main threat against it.

That deterrence has eroded in
recent times, as guerrilla warfare
became more prominent and left con-
ventional armies — here as elsewhere
— looking clumsy and vulnerable.

In a monthlong war in 2006,
Lebanese guerrillas with felatively
simple rockets knocked out Israeli
tanks, and Israel's high-tech military
was powerless to stop a barrage of
primitive, unguided -Katyusha rock-
ets on northern Israel.

The latest computerized gadgetry
is designed to knock down the mili-
tary's response time. Troops on the

ground can add new targets as soon as
they spot: them — like militants on
foot, a rocket squad or a vehicle —
to the network for commanders to see
instantly and hit.

Strikes that used to take 20 or more
minutes to coordinate now take just
seconds, said Maj. Hagai Ben-
Shushan, head of the C4I section for
Israel's artillery, "It doesn't take much,
then shells are going to the target,"
he said.

Israel is among several nations har-
nessing digital and satellite technolo-
gy to develop C4I systems — short
for "command, control, communica-
tions, computers and intelligence"
that integrate battlefield information.

The goal is to have "all the elements
of a force ... seeing the same tactical
picture, and you can move information

from one to the other completely

‘seamlessly," said Britain-based Giles
Ebbutt, who studies such systems for .

Jane's Information Group.

C4I systems are operational in the
United States, which started develop-
ment in the 1990s, as well as France,
Singapore, Germany, the United
Kingdom and Italy, among other
countries, Ebbutt said.

Israel's version — being developed
over the past decade or so — is "a lit-
tle bit further down the road than
some people ... because they have a
focus on the problem, they are con-
stantly operationally alert, and they

need to be as operationally developed

as they can," Ebbutt said.
The army says it started using the
first, basic version in 2005, but it did

The latest, completed in 2009 and in
training since last March, allows all
forces on the ground to communicate
instantaneously.

"Visually, now everything is on the
map, so it's much easier to coordi-
nate," said the battalion commander
whose men were being trained. "You
can easily understand the map and
the position of forces." He spoke on
condition of anonymity under mili-
tary rules.

On a stretch of sand near the army
base at Shivta, deep in Israel's south-
ern Negev desert, six artillery cannon
stood with their barrels aimed at tar-
gets about 4 miles (6 kilometers) away.
Commanders in a nearby armored
vehicle stared at two screens, watching
all movement on an interactive satel-
lite map.

LONDON

BRITAIN'S Scotland
Yard has written to the

* country's top-selling Sunday

tabloid to ask if it has any
evidence to support claims
that the paper spied on
celebrities, politicians and
other high-profile figures.
But the police force —

: which has been accused of

sweeping the allegations
under a rug — refused to
explain why it was asking the

+ powerful paper to volunteer

potentially incriminating evi-
dence about itself.
The force also refused to

say whether it had ever’

sought such evidence before,
or say what would happen if
the tabloid didn't comply
with its request.

The News of The World
has been at the center of the
tabloid phone hacking scan-
dal since a reporter and a





private investigator
employed by the Rupert
Murdoch title were caught
illegally eavesdropping on
the phones of the British
royal family’ s entourage.
The pair were convicted in
2007, but the News of the
World has long insisted that
they were the only ones
responsible for the sophisti-
cated phone tapping opera-
tion — a claim dismissed as
implausible by the paper's
critics.

The issue is particularly
sensitive because the
tabloid's former editor,
Andy Coulson, who stepped

‘down in the wake of the

scandal, now serves as
British Prime Minister David
Cameron's communications
director. Coulson has long
insisted he knew nothing of
the illegal goings-on at his

Police have come in for
harsh-scrutiny too. The
Times quoted several
unnamed detectives as say-
ing that they felt internal
pressure to curtail their
investigation into The News
of The World, which turned
up thousands of numbers of
potential phone tapping tar-
gets.

Police have denied that
claim, but launched a fresh
investigation amid public
outcry.

Earlier this month, prose-
cutors said they had found

newspaper, which has, also
ageressively investigated the

"If The Guardian can find

numerous News of the

one of its reporters wrote
following the news.

ACCRA, Ghana
Associated Press

THE president of Ghana on
Friday said his country is not
able to send troops to oust the
leader of Ivory Coast who is

‘unwilling to cede office after
losing presidential election in

late November.

The announcement could
complicate a move by a region-
al bloc of 15 nations in West
Africa to mount a military
intervention in order to allow
the internationally recognized
winner of the election Alas-
sane Ouattara to assume his
functions. He and his staff are
barricaded inside a hotel, his
exits blocked by soldiers loyal
to Gbagbo. ,

ECOWAS, the Economic
Community of West African
States, has twice sent a dele-
gation to try to persuade

‘ Gbagbo to step down.

After the second attempt
failed this week, the group
began deliberating the military
option. The move is contro-
versial, however, since it could

entail civilian casualties as well
as reprisal attacks against expa-
triates from ECOWAS mem-
ber countries living in Ivory
Coast. |

Ghanaian President John
Atta Mills said he backs
ECOWAS, but said his troops
are already committed to oth-
er peace missions around the
world — including in Ivory
Coast

"Ghana's position is that
even though we support the
decision by ECOWAS to send
a force to Ivory Coast, Ghana
finds itself unable to contribute
troops," because they are over-
stretched, he told reporters at a
press conference in Accra, the
capital of Ghana. "Currently,
Ghana has 500 soldiers on
United Nations missions in
Ivory Coast who are guarding
Mr. Alassane Ouattara."

The international communi-
ty has been uncharacteristical-
ly united in their decision to
not recognize Gbagbo because
the results were carefully
reviewed and certified by'a
special United Nations elec-
tion unit. °

Giving the ax isn’t
always the answer

Excerpted from Tom Weir's Halftime
_commentary post in the Game Qn! blog:

In my bid to make 2011 more paper-
free, I spent a good chunk of a thrilling
weekend cleaning the attic. That meant
diving into boxes filled with my newspa-
per clips from yesteryear and parting
ways with nostalgia.

I laughed when read a story about
how the NFL really, really wants to get rid
of concussions. J wrote
that one in 1994, And’
it also was funny to
read a diary Lance
Armstrong once wrote
for USA TODAY, saying how he hoped
1995 finally would be the year he was
able to complete an entire Tour de France.

But the story that caught my eye was a
column from Cleveland on Nov. 22, 1993.

> That was the day |
thought I might
get trampled, or
worse, while on
the job at a
Browns game.

The Browns had
just dropped a
third consecutive
game, and their
fans were irate that
a Native son of
Ohio, Bernie Kosar,
had been benched.

In those days at
the old Mistake on
the Lake, the
Browns had their

- coach hold his
postgame news conference in a trailer
under the stadium. To get there, the
coach had to pass through a gantlet of ~
fans lined up behind steel barriers.

It was the angriest mob of fans I've ever
seen. Almost none of the words coming
out of their mouths were printable. Tom
Archdeacon, the excellent columnist from
the Dayton Daily News, and | compared
strategies on which direction to run if the
barriers tipped and the fans rampaged in
our direction. It was spooky.

And who was the coach?

Bill Belichick. Think the franchise
would like a mulligan on that one?

So as fans around the NFL clamor for
coaches’ heads, remember that. It’s one
thing to scream for a Plan B, it’s quite an-
other to execute it.

Halftime

Tom Weir



US Presswire

Booed: Browns
fans were hard on
Bill Belichick.

shot: | don’t have a problem
with the Seattle Seahawks being in the
playoffs with a 7-9 record. I just think the
NFL should steal a page from the NCAA
tournament and make the Seahawks sur-
vive a play-in game against a comparable
team. Like TCU.



Morris’ Hall bid looks grim

With the Hall of Fame scheduled to announce
voting results Jan. 5, Daily Pitch examined 11 play-
ers on this year’s ballot, such as right-handed pitch-
er Jack Morris:

Case for: Morris had a 254-186 record, includ-
ing a decade-leading 162 wins in the 1980s. In
the 1991 World Series, he pitched what might be
the greatest game in history, beating the
Braves 1-0 in 10 innings in Game 7.

,. Case against: Morris’ career ERA of 3.90
would be the highest among Hall of Famers. Mor-
ris was also first in hits (2,212), earned runs
(998) and home runs (264) allowed in the 1980s.

How USA TODAY voted: Bob Nightengale and
Tom Pedulla voted for Morris, while Mike Dodd
and Seth Livingstone did not. -

All signs point to: Not this year and probably
not ever. Morris reached 52.3% last year. He has
four more tries to get to the magic number of
75%, and it seems unlikely. — Peter Barzilai

Sitting pretty



~ 142 Patriots remain

team-first, first-class

These are not exactly your father’s
New England Patriots ... even if
dear old dad was born after the new
millennium.

The AFC’s freshly playoff-minted,
No. 1-seeded Patriots have blended
_ more “off-the-street” free agents and
castoffs than usual to produce one of
coach Bill Belichick’s prototypically ©
selfless, resilient squads. .

Consider this: Twenty-one of the
53 players on the Patriots’ active ros-
ter went undrafted. -

The hoodie-wearing, football-
junkyard specialist often rummages
around for other teams’ discarded
parts. Belichick continues to stock
the Patriots’ roster with versatile
players who embrace the team con-

’ cept and. demonstrate a no-frills,
blue-collar work ethic.

“I think when you get to the final
cut, there's certainly a significant
pool of players that, for whatever
reason, aren't on a roster in Week 1
or Week 2 that are good players,”

- Belichick recently said to news re-
porters. “Part of it is opportunity and
part of it is situation. | don’t know
that there’s any formula or some
kind of historical percentage.”

Belichick, of course, plays the per-
centages. He knows there will be in-
juries, so he requires that players
sometimes learn multiple positions.

“It’s a whole different team. We're
built differently,” says Vince Wilfork,
who earned Pro Bowl honors at de- -

‘_fensive tackle and end. “(We) just

" keep grinding. No matter what is go-
ing on around us, we always finda °
way to keep going forward.”

The free agent list includes the
team’s top two backfield producers
— BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Danny
Woodhead, the New York Jets’ reject
running back.

What does it all mean?

“I guess it means we should have
drafted some of those players,” Nick
~ Caserio, the Patriots’ director of play-

er personnel, said recently. “It is a
credit to them. Obviously, the odds
were stacked against them a bit.”

Whatever it means, the Patriots
appear to have found their Super

Bowl mojo.



The Patriots file

Who's hot: Tom Brady. The
quarterback has thrown an
NFL-record 335 consecutive
passes without aninterception.

Who's not: Fred Taylor. With
14,000-plus career rushing-re-
ceiving yards, the veteran run-
ning back with the turf-toe is-
sue is an afterthought.

Key injuries: RB Danny
Woodhead (concussion); LB
Jermaine Cunningham (calf); DL

’ Brandon Deaderick (shoulder);
OL Dan Connolly (concussion);
TE Aaron Hernandez (hip).

Rankings: Offense: eighth
(ninth rushing, 11th passing).
Defense: 25th (11th vs. rush,
30th vs. pass). F

Why Patriots should make

- teams nervous: Belichick has
won.75% of his playoff games
(1555).

Why they may not: Hmmm. |

Bodog.net’s odds of win-
ning Super Bowl XLV: 2-1



They finished the regular season |
14-2, winning the division for a sev-
enth time in eight seasons. They
charge into the playoffs having won
eight in a row and 13 of their last 14.

Elite coach and quarterback

They have the league’s generally
recognized pre-eminent coach.

They have the NFL's hottest if not
premier quarterback in Tom Brady.

They have overcome adversity, in-
cluding a rash of season-ending in-
juries and contract issues. In the off-
season, they fixed their locker room
chemistry issues, which included lax
leadership, and they reloaded during
the season, discarding disgruntled

‘Randy Moss and acquiring his re-

placement, Deion Branch.

Perhaps most importantly, as the
AFC’s No. 1 seed, the Patriots can get
to Dallas in February without leaving
Massachusetts. They need to win



Naticnal Football League

only two games to advance to their
seventh Super Bowl.
Strange as it seems, it has been

five seasons since the Patriots hoist- -

ed the Lombardi Trophy.

_ Ayyear ago, the Baltimore Ravens
dispatched the Patriots 33-14 ina
first-round playoff game. That dispir-
iting defeat left most preseason prog-
nosticators to forecast that the Patri-
ots, at best, would vie for runner-up
in the AFC East behind the much-
hyped Jets, who beat the Patriots 28-
14 in Week 2. :

Brady led the team to its seventh
playoff appearance in the last eight
seasons, winning three AFC titles.
The last was in 2007, when New
England finished 16-0 in the regular

. season and won two playoff games

before losing to the New York Giants
in the Super Bowl.
The league's leading MVP candi- .

~

Four teams earned what everyone shoots for in
the NFL: first-round playoff byes. USA TODAY’s Jon
Saraceno looks at the teams who have a week off:

date, Brady finished with 3,900
yards and 36 touchdown passes.
“I’ve always been fascinated with
his ability to get them in the right
(pass) protection,” Miami Dolphins
coach Tony Sparano said. “To have
that kind of player on the field is like
having a coordinator in the huddle.”

Free agency works for Pats

Lesser-known contributors, such

_ as Montana State’s Dane Fletcher,

came as a result of the franchise’s
forays into free agency. Not all of the
acquisitions have panned out over
the years, but two recent examples
who did are defenders Eric Moore
and Rob Ninkovich.

Moore, 29, a graduate of the Unit-
ed Football League, was acquired last
month. Playing for his fifth NFL fran-
chise, Moore made an immediate

Something to shout about: Tom Brady, the NEL’s MVP in 2007, put up spectacular statistics again this season, throw-
ing for 3,900 yards and 36 touchdowns. He had a league-high 111.0 passer rating and was intercepted only four times.

impact as he started two games and
registered 11 tackles and two sacks.

Ninkovich, 26, a defensive lineman
and a long snapper in New Orleans .

‘before the Saints cut him in 2009,
starts at outside linebacker.

The Patriots’ underappreciated
and improving defense, young and
relatively inexperienced, is playing at
a higher level than it did during
mistake-filled start.

Itis a big, physical unit.

Three other Patriots defenders in
addition to Wilfork were voted to the
Pro Bowl — linebacker Jerod Mayo,

-Safety Brandon Meriweather and
rookie cornerback Devin McCourty.

“We are happy about the progress
we've made,” McCourty said. “We
felt like we made a lot of mistakes
(early in the season) ... but being
able to see our performance get bet-
ter and better is really exciting.”



In a season full of controversy, ad-
versity and throbbing pain, the Pitts-
burgh Steelers stride into the playoffs
with two of their most important,
and hobbled, players leading the
charge — and with rather large chips
on their shoulder pads.

Ben Roethlisberger, the Steelers’
big, resilient gunslinging quarter-
back, and Troy Polamalu, the pesky,
hard-hitting safety, have been areas
for concern because of lingering in-
juries.

Both played major roles as the
Steelers (12-4) wrapped up the AFC
North title and a much-needed bye,
when they pasted the Cleveland
Browns 41-9 on the final weekend.
That means Pittsburgh will play at
least one playoff game at Heinz Field.

The Steelers have overcome a lot
in 2010: Roethlisberger’s four-game
suspension; season-ending injuries
to offensive linemen Max Starks and
Willie Colon; the dust-up over the re-
lease of veteran kicker Jeff Reed; Po-
lamalu’s sometimes-absence from
the starting lineup; and the hullaba-
loo regarding multiple fines given to
linebacker James Harrison for hel-
met-leading hits that the league
deems gratuitous.

“(But) it-hasn’t been a roller-coast-
er season,” Steelers coach Mike Tom-
lin said after the Browns game. “We
knew what was in front of us; we
knew the obstacles; we knew that
some of the adversity was created by
us, but we (met) it head-on. We're
Still in the process of doing it.”

After winning the Super Bowl two
years ago, the Steelers failed to make
the playoffs last season. A loss against
the Browns would have sent them
on the road. “Our whole season
came down to this game,” tight end
Heath Miller said.

Pittsburgh appears well equipped
regarding its mission of capturing an
unprecedented seventh Super Bowl
championship.

Steelers players remain edgy and
upset over what they say has been
unfair treatment by the NFL, partic-
ularly regarding penalties. Polamalu
has been outspoken in his criticism
of Commissioner Roger Goodell.
How far has it gone? The players re-
fuse to speak to the NFL Network on
camera.

Rocky road to Dallas

The Steelers have a core veteran
group that includes 16 starters (or
regulars) from their title team of two
seasons ago. They also know that the
road to Dallas, host to this season’s
Super Bowl, could get rocky; it might

Adversity spurs rather than stifles Steelers’ resolve

the second play from scrimmage.

Roethlisberger knows something
about fighting through injury, but
against the Browns, he was feeling
no (obvious) pain. Wasting no time

Falcons no longer
flying under radar

The Atlanta Falcons, who seemed
to escape public detection for most
of the season, soar into the playoffs
as the NFC’s No. 1 seed after winning
nine of their last 10 games.

A Week 16 loss to the defending
champion New Orleans Saints halted
an eight-game winning streak but ul-
timately might better serve the Fal-
cons’ Super Bowl aspirations.

Yes, the proverbial wakeup call.

“It’s not a bad thing that we lost —
you can turn it into a positive,” Pro
Bowl tight end Tony Gonzalez said of
the 17-14 setback, the Falcons’ lone
home loss in 2010. “Sometimes you
have to screw things up to get it
right. At least it happened now in-
stead of later. This is something we
can learn from — it is going to make
us a better football team.

“When you win, you kind of brush .

over things. When you lose, you
have to face them. Offensively, we
have to play better.”

For the first time in 30 years, the
Falcons clinched the conference's
coveted best record (13-3) by drub-
bing the overmatched Carolina Pan-
thers 31-10 on the last weekend of
the season. That gave Atlanta a first-
round bye before it returns home to
the Georgia Dome. Quarterback
Matt Ryan has won 90% of his starts
in his loud indoor backyard. ~

“It’s really important, especially
for us,” Pro Bowl wide receiver Rod-
dy White said of the home-field ad-
vantage. “We rarely lose in this build-
ing. The crowd will be excited, and it
will be a playoff atmosphere. The
tempo of the game will pick up, and
we'll pick up with it.”

It was the first time the Falcons
won the NFC South since 2004. “It
feels great — division champs,” run-
ning back Michael Turner said. °

Playing it close

But Atlanta rarely dominated its
- Opposition in 2010 — at least on the
scoreboard. Seven of the Falcons’
victories were by seven points or
fewer, including four by four points
or fewer. They split overtime games
_against the Pittsburgh Steelers (lost)
and the Saints (won).

That sort of math led many pun-
dits to pan the Falcons during most
of the season, despite their success. .

“I know that’s a term — ‘flying un-
der the radar’ — (but) we really don’t
concern ourselves where we are and
what the perception is,” Atlanta
coach Mike Smith said.

There also is the feeling the Fal-

cons have yet to play a complete

The Falcons file

Who's hot: WR Roddy White
posted franchise single-season
records for catches (115) and
yards (1,389).

Who's not: RB Michael Tur-
ner has not rushed for 100
yards in his last three games,
and he has two red-zone fum-
bles in his last two.

Key injuries: CB Brian Wil-
liams (knee) and LB Sean With-
erspoon (shoulder).

Rankings: Offense — 16th
(12th rushing, 15th passing).
Defense —16th (10th vs. rush,
22nd vs. pass). ;

Why the Falcons should

are a football coach’s dream —
capable in all three phases.

_Why they might not:

or defense.

game in all three phases this season,
despite wonderful special-teams play
led by Pro Bowl pick Eric Weems,
the first Falcon to return a kickoff
and a punt for TDs in the same sea-
son. Kicker Matt Bryant made 28 of
31 field goals. :

At home, the Falcons retain a sig-
nificant advantage. “Defend the
Dome” is Atlanta’s motto— only the
New England Patriots, the AFC’s top-
seeded team, have won more home
games (21) over the last three sea-
sons than the Falcons (20).

The Falcons were steady, if not
spectacular, during the regular sea-
son. They lost one game after
Oct. 17. With a league-high seven
Pro Bowl players, including Ryan,
Turner and White, the Falcons are a
talented, tough and well-coached
bunch.

Ryan.threw for 3,705 yards, 28
TDs and nine interceptions. His 33
career victories tied him with Hall of
Famer Dan Marino for most by an
NFL quarterback, since the merger in
1970, in his first three seasons, Tur-
ner scored a team-best 12 TDs and
Tushed for 1,371 yards. White post-
ed his second season with more than
1,300 yards receiving (1,389) and set
a franchise record for catches in a -
season (115), best in the NEL.

Smith calls his quarterback —
nicknamed “Matty Ice” for his cool
leadership style — one of the tough-
est players he has been around.

But in the New Orleans loss, Atlan-
ta’s offense fluttered and sputtered.

Happy at home: Falcons wideout Roddy White, celebrating a touchdown Oct. 24 at the Georgia Dome, says having the
NFC’s home-field advantage is huge. “It’s really important, especially for us,” he says. “We rarely lose in this building.”

The Saints stuffed Turner, limiting
him to 48 yards rushing. Then New
Orleans took White out of the game
with a clever scheme and left Ryan
with few options that worked. He
finished with 148 yards passing.

‘Learning from loss

Ryan, who has a 20-2 record at
home, called the game a learning ex-
perience that would serve to further

motivate the Falcons. :
White said, “We just have to be
more consistent (on offense) and
play a little faster.”
The Falcons defense could not be

. blamed for the loss to the Saints; it

held quarterback Drew Brees to his
second-lowest passer rating of the
season (77.1).

“We like to fly around,” defensive

end Kroy Biermann said.
~ Smith preaches four fuvianiave.

tals: Winning time of possession,
controlling the clock, protecting the
ball from turnovers and guarding
against penalties, especially on third
down in the fourth quarter.

The Falcons, no longer the stealthy
underdog, are 26-1 over the past
three seasons in games they led at
the start of the fourth quarter.

“If we can play like we're capable
of playing,” Gonzalez said, “we can
beat anyone.”

Unpredictability makes
Bears mystery to many

Lovie Smith said what was on the
minds of many who have tracked the
up-and-down meanderings of the
Chicago Bears in 2010.

“When you have a player like Matt
Forte,” the Bears head coach recently
asked of the news media, “why
wouldn’t you want to run the foot-
ball?”

Fair question. The answers: Mike
Martz and Jay Cutler.

Martz, the Bears offensive coor-
dinator, is a noted wizard in the
passing game. Cutler, the cocksure
signal-caller with the cannon, can
make any throw look easy.

Of course, any Bears head coach
worth his down-stuffed parka must
also account for the weatherman.
For decades, inclement late-season
weather has dictated the franchise’s
“Monsters of the Midway” defen-
sive-oriented philosophy. As Smith
noted in the height of obviousness,
“In Chicago, you have to be able to
run the football.”

Finally, the Bears are.

For the first time in four seasons,
the oft-underestimated and under-
appreciated Bears are in the playoffs
as the unanticipated No. 2 seed. But
they remain a mystery team with
multiple football personalities — “the
Chicago Sybils,” according to one Chi-
cago Tribune columnist.

Are the real Bears the potentially
explosive team that posted a com-
bined 78 points against the Minneso-
ta Vikings and New York Jets in
weeks 15 and 16? Orare they the
error-prone bunch that almost det-
onated their quarterback in a 10-3
loss at the Green Bay Packers in

Experts weigh i in



The Bears file

Who's hot: RB Matt Forte.
His 91 rushing yards Sunday
gave him 1,069 for the season.

Who’s not: WR Johnny Knox.

_ He missed the 1,000-yard re-
ceiving mark with no catches in
the finale.

Key injuries: WR Earl Ben-
nett (ankle) and LB Pisa Tinoisa-
moa (knee).

Rankings: Offense — 30th
(22nd rushing, 28th passing).
Defense — ninth (second vs.

fense; Mike Martz the mad sci-
entist.

erratic play of the offensive line
and quarterback:

Bodog.net’s odds of win-
ning Super Bowl XLV: 12-1.



Week 17?

In the loss to the Packers, an old
enemy reappeared: lack of pass pro-
tection. Quarterback Jay Cutler was

sacked six times and clobbered eight

more times.
“It’s nothing we can’t handle,” .
Cutler said afterward.

Leaky offensive line

56 sacks this season, a worrisome
statistic entering the playoffs. The of-

Back to old tricks: The Bears’ Devin Hester had three return touchdowns in
2010 after going the last two seasons without one. He had four receiving TDs.

fensive line was wracked by injuries
and positional switches.

It was the Bears’ offense — not
their vaunted defense — that led to
wins in seven of their final nine
games.

It was not via Cutler’s arm as
much it was Forte’s legs. During No-.
vember and December, Chicago was
the only team in the league that ran
the football more than it passed.

Forte had averaged 5.7 yards a
carry over the previous five games
before the Packers game.

“Matt right now is just outra-
geous,” Martz.said.

The offense, trying to master
Martz’s schemes, averaged one
touchdown a game in five games be-
fore the the Bears’ Oct. 31 bye but
produced 23 TDs in the last nine

games. -

Chicago has been running more
effectively, throwing it more effi-
ciently and protecting Cutler better.
Martz also begari moving Cutler out
of the pocket and calling for plays to

~ get the ball out of his hands quicker.

Martz was hired by Smith before
this season to maximize Cutler’s
considerable abilities and cut down
on his league-worst 26 interceptions
in 2009.

The Bears have developed a nicé
downfield passing game, and, with
more balance, the offense has gained
traction. Entering the Packers game,
the Bears had.averaged 28 points
over their last five games, during

- which Cutler cut down on errant

throws and poor decisions.
But against the Packers, he threw a



pair of interceptions and finished
with a passer rating of 43.5 — his
fourth time below 60 this season.

“This doesn’t change anything,”
Cutler said. “As an offense, we are
still very confident in our ability to
move the ball and score.”

No letting up by Smith

There was the predictable debate
about whether Smith would dial it
back for Green Bay after Chicago
clinched a bye in the first round after
the Minnesota Vikings stunned the
Philadelphia Eagles. He did not —
and with good reason.

“Even though we have played our
best football as of late, you can’t say
we have peaked yet,” Smith said be-
fore the game. “There are still some
areas we need to improve upon.”

While the special teams live up to
their name, particularly with Pro
Bowl returner Devin Hester, the de-
fense slipped in recent weeks.

For the season’s first 22 months,
Chicago had allowed the fewest
points in the NFL. Before Week 17,
the Bears allowed 26 points a game
the previous five weeks, despite the
presence of Pro Bowl linebackers
Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs and
defensive end Julius Peppers.

So, who are these Chicago Bears?

Many say the 11-5 Bears are over-
rated — just as some observers
thought after they raced to a 3-0
start before permitting 10 sacks by
the New York Giants, who knocked
Cutler out of the game in a brutal
loss in Week 4:

Hall of Fame receiver James Lofton
isn’t one of them.

“It looked like a mess,” said the
Westwood One radio analyst who
worked the Giants game. “After-
ward, everyone was saying, ‘The
Bears aren't for real.’ | don’t think
anyone is saying that now.”

Saints running back has right mentality

Running back Chris Ivory thought the Cin-
cinnati Bengals would draft him in the late
rounds of the NFL draft and was bitterly dis-
appointed when he was not selected.

But that disappointment quickly turned to
hope when the New Orleans Saints signed
him May 3, a move that helped both parties
more than they could have imagined.

When Pierre Thomas and Reggie Bush suf-
fered early-season injuries, Ivory produced
one of the most remarkable individual success

stories of the season. He ultimately led the de- .

fending Super Bow! champions in rushing
yards (716). He accounted for five of New Or-
leans’ nine touchdowns on the ground before
a foot injury forced him to leave Sunday’s 23-
13 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The player

Height: 6-0. Weight: 222.

Hometown: Longview, Texas

College highlights: Injuries limited him to
22 games in three years at Washington State.
He carried 91 times for 534 yards and four
scores. He was dismissed from the team after
a July 2009 altercation and transferred to Di-
vision II Tiffin (Ohio) University, where he had

39 rushing attempts for 223 yards before tear-

ing a ligament in his left knee.



But Chuck Cook, US Presswire

Big addition: The Saints helped Chris Ivory
turn disappointment into exhilaration.

Scouting report: Ivory is a bullish runner
who does his best work between the tackles,
but his deceptive speed also allows him to get
to the edge. He will run through arm tackles
and is very difficult for one man to bring
down. He needs to work at becoming more of
a factor in the passing game, and his pass pro-
tection can also improve.

Quotable: “He’s surprised a lot of people in
our building with his speed and ability to pull
away from the pack as he comes around the
corner.” — Saints quarterback Drew Brees

The person
Biggest adjustment: “Everybody in the
league is fast. ... You’ve got to have some

speed to get around these guys. It’s almost
like an all-star ganue every week.”

Role model: “I would say my mom, Judy.
For a while she was my mom and dad. She al-
ways had positive things to uplift me. When |
wasn't in my greatest moments, she had
something to make me feel better about the
situation and continue to strive for my goals.”

Greatest strength: “I would probably have
to say my mentality. I have a mentality that |
will not be denied.”

Greatest weakness: “One of my weak-
nesses is trying to please everybody, because
you can’t please everybody.”

Playing in New Orleans: “What | like
about it most is the fans. They show a lot of
love. I have plans to do a lot of great things for
the community.”

Brees: “He always has something extra to
give to you to make you better, whether it’s in ~
football or life.”

NFL dream: “] would like to be able to say I
used my celebrity to help those who might
not have had the things they wanted in life. I
just want to know that | did good deeds.”

A: When you're out of it, you say, “So, that’s
what my kids look like.” You end up going to
lunch with your wife or golfing. It’s a different
lifestyle.

Jets: OLB Jason Taylor

Can the wily veteran spearhead a pass
rush to get Peyton Manning out of sorts?

> TV announcers: Al Michaels, Cris

> Keys to the game: When Jets CB
Darrelle Revis smothered WR Reggie
Wayne in last season’s AFC Championship -
Game, QB Peyton Manning turned to
Pierre Garcon, Austin Collie and TE Dallas
Clark for a combined 22 catches for 309
yards and three touchdowns. Manning
was also sacked just twice as he repeat-
edly burned the Jets’ blitz by beating
man-to-man coverage. Three big differ-
ences this time around are CB Antonio
Cromartie starting opposite Revis, and
Collie and Clark both being on injured re-
serve. With protection not as strong in
front of Manning much of the season, it’s
more critical for Indianapolis to establish
some semblance of a ground game. The
Jets running game will play an even big-
ger role. QB Mark Sanchez will essentially
have had two weeks to rest his sore right
shoulder, but his decision-making the
second half of the season.was often poor.
The Colts are often pegged for having a
soft front seven against the run, but Indi-

record with nine consecutive playoff ap-
pearances.



_ Who will win and why

The Bodog.net line: Colts by 3

The Colts battled their way into
the playoffs with inspired playin -
recent weeks, but this isn’t the
dominant team of years past. At
the same time, the Jets struggled
more than expected in man cov-
erage this season and don’t get to
the quarterback enough to easily
win a tough road playoff game.

By Jim Mclsaac, Getty Images

Cover man: Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis.








Who has the edge?

When the Jets ...
- > Run the ball

New York must establish its strength early vs. an Indi-
anapolis defense that permitted 127 yards a game on
the ground or the Jets risk forcing the game onto the
tired arm of second-year QB Mark Sanchez. RBs LaDai-
nian Tomlinson and Shonn Greene should be fresh after
getting Week 17 off to rest. Edge: Jets

> Pass the ball -

Indianapolis’ banged-up secondary must contend
with a potent trio of wide receives in Braylon-Edwards,
Santonio Holmes and Jerricho Cotchery. And don’t for-
get TE Dustin Keller and Sanchez hooked up for scores
in all three Jets’ playoff games after the 2009 season.
Still, Sanchez’s health could be an issue. Edge: Jets

When the Colts ...

> Runtheball .

Their 29th-ranked attack eclipsed 100 yards six
times in 2010, though it did hit that mark in each of the
last three weeks, and Joseph Addai finally might be ;
healthy enough to be a major factor. The Jets had the
third-stingiest run defense in the league, but they
sagged in December, ceding 117 yards a game in the
month. (Slight) edge: Jets

> Pass the ball .

Though not a banner campaign by his standards, QB
Peyton Manning is not someone any defense looks for-
ward to facing. His dissection of the Jets in last year’s
AFC Championship Game was one of the signature per-
formances of his checkered playoff career. New York
has more capable cover men this time around, but can
the Jets generate the pressure to disrupt Manning be-
fore he solves their schemes? Edge: Colts

The Jets’ Brad Smith is one of the game’s moredan-

> TV announcers: Jim Nantz, Phil Simms
> Keys to the game: The Ravens-enter the
playoffs riding a four-game winning | streak be- -

~ cause they returned to a more physical style of
_ play after a Week 13 loss to the Pittsburgh

Steelers that essentially cost Baltimore the AFC
North crown. Now the Ravens offensive line is
run-blocking better, and RB Ray Rice has-aver-
aged 23.8 carries the last four weeks. The
Chiefs don’t stand out against the run or pass.
But they did have a plus nine turnover margin
during the regular season, and maintaining of-

’ fensive balance is important for Baltimore be-

cause Kansas City will come out looking to con-
trol the tempo with its own ground game. RB
Jamaal Charles averaged 6.4 yards a carry dur-
ing the regular season. Thomas Jones led the
team with 245 carries and often employs his

bruising style to soften up defenses for light- -

ning-fast Charles, The tandem also sets up ex-
cellent pass protection for QB Matt Cassel, who
threw 15 touchdown passes to Pro Bowl WR ~
Dwayne Bowe. Cassel is highly efficient work-
ing off play-action, and the Ravens surrendered
52 completions of 20-plus yards during the
regular season.

> Matchup to watch — Ravens DL Haloti
Ngata vs. Chiefs C Casey Wiegmann and RG.
Ryan Lilja: There might not be'a more dom-
inating all-around defensive lineman than Nga-
ta, who is 6-4,350 pounds. He doesn’t rack up
big sack or tackle numbers, but he often push-
es around double teams and has surprising up-
field quickness for his size. He has even been

~ known to effectively drop into pass coverage in

a short zone. Wiegmann and Lilja are savvy
(though smallish) veterans who will often be
responsible for preventing Ngata from giving
the Ravens’ swarming linebackers free lanes to
attack Charles.and Jones at the line of scrim-
mage and Cassel behind it.



By Kirby Lee, US Presswire

Chiefly speaking: Matt Cassel had a career-
high passer rating-of 93.0 this season.

> Player spotlight — Ravens LT Michael
Oher: In his second season, Oher has one ef the
quickest first steps in the game — sometimes too
quick, as he has eight false starts among 12 pen-
alties this season. His quick trigger will be put to
the test with Chiefs OLB Tamba Hali (AFC-high

14% sacks) attacking. Oher could also be ham-

pered by several nagging leg injuries.

> Fast facts: The Ravens are a wild-card team
for the third consecutive season. ... Baltimore
QB Joe Flacco has reached the playoffs in all three
of his NFL seasons. He has won three of his first
five postseason starts. ... The Chiefs:won the

Saints

> TV announcers: Tom Hammond, Mike
Mayock, Alex Flanagan ;

> Keys to the game: The Saints rolled up
494 yards in total offense ina 34-19 victory
against the Seahawks in Week 11. QB Drew
Brees completed 29 of 43 passes for 382 yards
and four touchdowns while RB Chris Ivory
rushed for 99 yards on 23 carries. Essentially,
New Orleans moved the ball at will while the
outcome was in doubt. The good news heading
into Saturday for the Saints is they rested sev-
eral key players last weekend. The bad news is
they weren’t sharp in a loss to the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers and must travel cross-country-on a
short week. Seattle might not decide between
QBs Matt Hasselbeck (ribs) and Charlie White-
hurst until late in the week. But Seahawks of-
fensive coordinator Jeremy Bates was creative
in Sunday's NFC West-clinching win against the
St. Louis Rams in getting RBs Justin Forsett and
Leon Washington involved in the short passing
game for an offense that struggles to run the
ball. Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch churned

- out 75 yards, giving the team some semblance |

of balance.
> Matchup to watch — Saints WR

Marques Colston vs. Seahawks CB Marcus

Trufant: Colston was a matchup nightmare in
the first meeting, catching eight passes for 113
yards and two touchdowns. But he had arthro-
scopic surgery on his right knee last week, and
his availability could be in question even
though he sat out Week 17. Whoever starts on
the right side for Seattle will be a popular target
for Brees. Trufant is considered the Seahawks’
top cornerback but was beaten for three touch-
downs in Week 16 and repeatedly tested on
quick passes by the St. Louis Rams.

That's not an option against
the Saints, as the regular-sea-
son meeting proved, even
though the Seahawks get help
at Qwest Field.

» Our pick: Saints 30-20



Who has the edge?

When the Saints ...

> Run the ball

Injuries largely negated a once-stout Seat-
tle run defense, though it has held three of
its last four opponents below 100 yards. It
might not be an issue with New Orleans RBs
Chris Ivory and Pierre Thomas hobbling.
Edge: Even

> Pass the ball

With or without WR Marques Colston
(minor knee surgery), expect QB Drew
Brees to keep his cross hairs on the second-
ary. He completed at least 20 passes to 10
receivers in 2010, so he has no problem
spreading the wealth, especially given a
group with such complementary talents.
Keep an eye on WR Lance Moore, especially
if Colston sits. (Major) edge: Saints

When the Seahawks ...

> Run the ball

Despite the midseason acquisition of RB
Marshawn Lynch, Seattle was the second-
worst running team in the league, though a
patchwork offensive line shoulders much of
the blame. But Lynch and Co. managed 141 -
yards Sunday vs. the St. Louis Rams, and
they might have to assume a larger role if QB
Matt Hasselbeck can’t go. Edge: Saints

> Pass the ball

Seattle will catch a break if Saints FS Mal-
colm Jenkins (knee) can’t go. But reliable
Darren Sharper will step right in otherwise,
and the league’s fourth-ranked pass defense
might not suffer, especially if the Seahawks
must turn to QB Charlie Whitehurst to make
his third NFL start. Edge: Saints

Special teams

Seattle KR Leon Washington could be a
great equalizer. New Orleans is struggling to
replace injured Courtney Roby. Olindo Mare
is a deadeye kicker who excels at getting
touchbacks. Edge: Seahawks

Coaching ;

Sean Payton is playoff-tested and almost
always has his team ready to play. Pete Car-
roll hasn’t coached an NFL playoff game in
12 years and has several game-management
gaffes on his résumé this year. Edge: Saints

NFC wild-card matchup

NFC East champion

Philadelphia
Eagles

NFC wild card

- Green Bay
_ Packers:



> TV announcers: Joe Buck, Troy Aikman,
Pam Oliver

> Keys to the game: Either offense can look
more than capable of leading its team through
the NFC playoff bracket on any given day. But
they’re also both highly inconsistent. The Pack-
ers struggled to move the ball against the Chi-
cago Bears’ Cover 2 shell last weekend and

" managed 10 points and 284 total yards. And

though the Eagles play a different base scheme
defensively, Philadelphia does rush the passer
well and picked off 23 passes during the reg-
ular season. Considering Green Bay’s inability
to run the ball consistently, QB Aaron Rodgers
is going to have to be highly efficient playing
against a ballhawking secondary expecting to
see a fairly one-dimensional offense. The Ea-
gles hope sitting QB Michael Vick last weekend
will be the equivalent of hitting the reset but-
ton. Teams blitzed Philadelphia heavily down
the stretch, and Vick took a beating with the
blocking schemes regularly failing to make’
proper adjustments. Green Bay registered 47
sacks during the regular season, but Philadel-
phia will combat that with a variety of screen
passes to RB LeSean McCoy, who executes the
play as well as any back in the league.

> Matchup to watch — Packers WR Greg
Jennings vs. Eagles CB Dimitri Patterson:
Patterson kept his starting job last weekend
over CB Joselio Hanson, who was rested. But
Patterson struggled in a Week 16 loss to the
Minnesota Vikings and rookie QB Joe Webb,
who was making his first NFL start in that
game. Jennings was targeted 10 times by
Rodgers last weekend and closed the regular
season with a 16.6-yard average on 76 recep-
tions. While Rodgers looks to WR Donald Driv-
er for first downs, Jennings is the big-play tar-
get coach Mike McCarthy likes. z

> Player spotlight — Eagles LB Stewart
Bradley: He has missed the last three games
with a dislocated elbow but will test it in prac-
tice this week. Philadelphia coach Andy Reid





By Andrew Weber, US Presswire

- Big-play target: The Packers’ Greg Jennings

has three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons.

said Bradley's return for Sunday might be a
stretch. And even if Bradley does manage to get
back on the field, it could be on the strong side
with rookie Jamar Chaney playing well in the

. middle. He made 23 tackles in two starts after

replacing Bradley. .

‘> Fast facts: The Packers beat the Eagles 27-
20 in Philadelphia to open the regular season. '
Vick threw for 175 yards and a touchdown and
rushed for 103 yards after Kevin Kolb left the
game with aconcussion. ... Vick has turned

the ball over eight times in his last five starts. He

didn’t turn the ball over once in his first seven
games.



Who will win and why



Hopeful: Eagles linebacker Stewart Bradley, right, is questionable.

The Bodog.net line: Eagles
by3 -

As lackluster as the Eagles
looked in consecutive losses
to end the season, coach Andy
Reid will get his team pre-
pared. Philadelphia will be

~ better rested, at home and —
able to jump on a Green Bay
team that can become too
one-dimensional offensively.

> Our pick: Eagles 27-24

Who has the edge?

> Run the ball

They struggled to find a feoacenent for
RB Ryan Grant, who went down for the
year in Week .1 in Philadelphia. But the Ea-
gles have surrendered at least 100 rushing
yards the last six weeks, and the status of
injured MLB Stewart Bradley is iffy. _
- Slight) edge: Eagles

QB Aaron Rodgers missed Week 15
(concussion) and had the game of his life

the New York Giants in Week 16. Look for
him to steer clear of CB Asante Samuel and
use a deep receiving corps to exploit the
Eagles secondary. Edge: Packers

> Run the ball

In multidimensional RB LeSean McCoy
and QB Michael Vick, Philadelphia has per-
haps the: most versatile and dynamic com-
bination of runners in the league. But both
are on the small side, and they could wear
down quickly. Edge: Eagles

> Pass the ball

The Packers boast arguably the league's
best secondary with NFC Pro Bowl starters .
in CB Charles Woodson and S Nick Collins.
CB Tramon Williams is an up-and-comer.
The Eagles counter with game-breaking
WRs DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin,
who spearhead an impressive array of op-
tions for Vick. Green Bay OLB Clay Mat-
thews must get to Vick quickly. Edge: Even

Special teams .

The wild card is Jackson, who essentially
ruined the Giants’ season with his game-

. ending punt return TD in Week 15. But is

he healthy? Eagles K David Akers has been
to five Pro Bowls. Edge: Eagles —

Coaching -

The Eagles’ Andy Reid and the Packers’
Mike McCarthy should enjoy matching
wits amid two high-powered passing
games featuring, arguably, the conference's
best quarterbacks. Expect cagey Green Bay
defensive coordinator Dom Capers to cook
something up, too. Edge: Packers

Elusive: Can the Packers defense wear
down Eagles quarterback Michael Vick?



14. JANUARY 5-11, 2011 - USA TODAY SPORTS WEEKLY







| Fitzpatrick,
Jackson give

cause for hope

_ Despite a 4-12 record and a 38-7
season-Closing loss to the New York
Jets, there is a sense that the Bills
‘might finally be heading i in the right
direction.

If that is true, they will need a big
offseason in terms of high-quality
free agent signings and draft picks,
especially with the No. 3 overall

pick. ~

> What went right: The Bills fi-
nally got competent play from quar-
terback Ryan Fitzpatrick. One of
the biggest decisions the team has
in the offseason is figuring out if .
Fitzpatrick is the long-term answer
at the position or whether a quar-
‘terback should be drafted.

-Fred Jackson stated his case to
be the No: 1 running back as he
nearly achieved his second 1,000-
yard season, falling 73 yards shy. .

> What'wentwrong:The ~
switch to the 3-4 defense did not go
smoothly. The Bills had primarily
4-3 personnel on the roster, and the
only free agent additions were DE
Dwan Edwards and LB Andra Da-
vis, who both finished the season
on injured reserve. Several players
had to learn new positions, and the
Bills struggled all season to get their

assignments down. The run defense -

rated last in the NFL at 169 yards a

gam

The Bills were banking on their
deep secondary to carry the load for
the defense, which had nine inter-
ceptions as a unit. .

-On offense, rookie RB CJ. Spiller
had a disappointing year. ©

Bills MVP: QB Ryan Fitzpatrick

His ascendance to the starter’s chair in Week 3
helped Buffalo become.a more competitive football
team, winning four of Fitzpatrick’s final seven starts.
Before that resurgence, Buffalo lost three consecutive
games by three points each to the Baltimore Ravens,
Kansas City Chiefs and Chicago Bears — all playoff
teams. Fitzpatrick saw his streak of 15 consecutive
games with a touchdown snapped in Week 16, leav-
ing him three shy of Hall of Famer Jim Kelly’s fran-
chise record. The former Harvard signal-caller was
also the first Buffalo passer to throw for 3,000 yards
since J.P. Losman in 2006 and the first to reach 20 ©
touchdown passes since Drew Bledsoe in 2004.

> Runner-up: WR Stevie Johnson — The 2008

seventh-rounder emerged’as a 1,000-yard receiver,

and his 10 TD grabs were one shy of the team record.

Dolphins MVP: OLB Cameron Wake

The two-time Canadian Football faistie defensive

player of the year blossomed in his second profession-_

al season south of the Canadian border and proved he
could compete for the NFL's version of the award.
Wake finished third in the league with 14 sacks and

justified Miami's decision to part with veteran pass

rushers Joey Porter and Jason Taylor in the offseason.
Wake left plenty of havoc in his wake, finishing fourth
on the team with 57 tackles and forcing three fumbles
for the Dolphins’ sixth-ranked defense.

> Runner-up: T Jake Long — The No. 1 overall
pick of the 2008 draft garnered his third Pro Bowl se-
lection in three NFL campaigns while weathering a
debilitating left shoulder injury over the latter half of
the season.

Predictions
e

by owner fail
to pan out

Looks like Steve Ross went
0-for-2.

June 6, during the excitement of
team awards week, the Dolphins
owner made.a pair of bold procla-

mations.
One, he expected this team to

reach the Super Bowl.

Two, he said he hoped fellow

‘Michigan alum Chad Henne would

go down as the greatest quarter-
back in Dolphins history.

> What went right: First-year
coordinator Mike Nolan’s defensive
tweaks paid off in a big way. The
Dolphins climbed from 22nd in the
league in total defense under fired
Paul Pasqualoni to sixth under No-
lan. They put together a six-game

- stretch in which they allowed an av-

erage of 14.3 points and did not al-
low an opponent to score more than
17. ; 2

The Dolphins also became road

warriors, finishing 6-2, even after

getting routed 38-7 on Sunday at
the New England Patriots. Two clubs
in franchise history (1972 and 1984)
had as many as seven road wins.

‘> What went wrong: The Dol-
phins couldn’t win at home. In fin-
ishing 1-7, they matched the 2007
and 1968 teams for fewest home
wins in a season. :

Henne regressed; finishing his
first full season as the starter with
15 touchdowns and 19 intercep-
tions. Worse, he was publicly bick-
ering with wideout Brandon Mar-

Team stayed
hot right up
to the end

The Patriots, the NFL’s hottest
team in the second half of 2010,
kept that ball rolling Sunday as Tom
Brady and the bulk of New Eng-
land’s healthy starters took care of
business to dispatch the Miami Dol-
phins 38-7 to finish the season 14-2.

With Wes Welker the only
healthy scratch, the Patriots were
intent on closing the door ona suc-
cessful regular season before open-
ing up the bye week and a potential
run at another Super Bowl. “We'd
hate to come out here and not finish
the season the way we all expected
to,” Brady said simply of his two-
plus quarters of action in which he
extended his streak without an in-
terception to 335 pass attempts
while also notching his ninth con-
secutive game with at least two
touchdowns and no interceptions.

> By the numbers: Patriots wins
in 2010 totaled 14, the fourth sea- _
son of 14 or more wins in the Bill
Belichick era. Belichick became the
first coach in NFL history with four
14-win seasons (2003, 2004, 2007,
2010). The only other coaches with
multiple 14-win seasons are the San

‘Francisco 49ers’ George Seifert
(three) and the Washington Red-
skins’ Joe Gibbs (three), the Chicago
Bears’ Mike Ditka (two) and the Mi-
ami Dolphins’ Don Shula (two).
Each of the previous three times
Belichick teams won 14 games his
team advanced to the Super Bowl.

> Lineup watch: With tight end
Aaron Hernandez (hip) out the last
two games, Julian Edelman had
three catches for 72 yards Sunday.

Patriots MVP: QB Tom Brady

_No-brainer. The prohibitive favorite for eau MVP
honors has been the constant for a team in transition
and led the league with 14 victories. He paced the
NFL with 36 touchdown passes and QB rating (111.0)
while throwing a league-low four interceptions. He
finished the season throwing 335 consecutive passes
without a pick, breaking Bernie Kosar’s record. Brady
also nudged aside Brett Favre in the record books and
has won 28 consecutive regular-season games in Gil-
lette Stadium. And he did it all while overseeing an of-
fense that lost constants such as Kevin Faulk and Ran-
dy Moss but never missed a beat while Deion Branch,
Danny Woodhead and rookie tight ends Rob Gron-
kowski and Aaron Hernandez made their marks.

Play off loss
VS. Colts a big.
motivation

As if the Jets didn’t have enough
motivation heading into the playoffs,
they also will have revenge on their
minds in the first round.

The Jets (11-5), who scored a
meaningless 38-7 rout of the Buffalo
Bills (4-12), are the sixth seed in the
AFC playoffs and will visit the AFC
South champion Indianapolis Colts
(10-6) in a first-round game Satur-
day. The Colts beat the Jets 30-17 in
the AFC title game last January.

“It’s an opportunity to get back at
them,” tight end Dustin Keller said.

- “We owe them one. They got us in-

the second half last year, and if we
can go out there and (play) a full
game, we'll be all right.”

In the Colts’ win last January, Pey-
ton Manning carved the Jets up for
377 passing yards and three touch-
downs, although he doesn’t have all
the weapons he had back then; with
wideout Austin Collie and tight end
Dallas Clark out for the season.

> Lineup watch: The Jets expect
injured safeties Eric Smith (concus-
sion) and James Ihedigbo (ankle,
knee) to be available Saturday.
Smith, who likely would start,
missed the last three regular-season
games, and Ihedigbo sat out the fi-
hale.

> By the numbers: Rookie Joe
McKnight’s 158 rushing yards on
32 carries marked the first 100-yard
game by a Jets running back since
Week 4, also against the Buffalo
rushing defense. LaDainian Tom-
linson had 133 yards, and Shonn
Greene contributed 117 in a 38-14
win vs. the Bills on Oct. 3.

The Jaguars’ season ended with-

from Week 8 to Week 14 were a major reason the.
Jaguars were on the cusp of the AFC South crown.
‘The nagging knee injury that short-circuited Jones-
Drew ina crucial Week 15 loss to the Indianapolis
Colts and kept him out of the final two games was the
primary reason Jacksonville couldn’t close the deal

Flacco aims
to step up.
his game

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is
looking to make more of an impact
in the playoffs.

He has won three playoff games
in his first two seasons, but Flacco
hasn’t produced stellar perfor-
mances. He never has thrown for
- more than 190 yards, and he has

completed more than half of his
passes once.”

Flacco will try to find his playoff
footing Sunday when the Ravens
play at the Kansas City Chiefs in the
first round.of the postseason.

But Flacco didn’t end the regular

~ season on a strong note. He has av-
eraged 133 yards passing in his last
three games. .

“We're going to the playoffs for
bigger and better things,” Flacco
said after the Ravens’ 13-7 win vs.
the Cincinnati Bengals. “That’s the
important thing right now.”

> Trending: Ray Rice did not
fumble during the regular season.
The Ravens’ running back didn’t put
the ball on the ground on 370
touches. Rice fumbled once in his
rookie season and none in the first

_ 11 games of 2009. But his ball secu-
rity came into question at the end of
last season, when he fumbled in
three of the last five regular-season

‘games. The Ravens set a team rec-
ord for fewest turnovers in a season
with 20.

> Lineup watch: Free safety Ed

Reed injured his ribs on his second
interception just before halftime last
week. Reed is considered question-





















able for Sunday’s game at Kansas |

Ravens I MVP: ILB Ray Lewis

Who else? His bio says he’s 35, but the 15-year
veteran never seems to age much, whichis why he’s
been a Pro Bowler a dozen times. Lewis finished
sixth league-wide with 139 tackles, his highest total

. since 2004. He also had a pair of forced fumbles, a

couple of sacks and two interceptions. But Lewis has
never been aman to be measured by numbers, and
the emotional fuel he continues to provide his team
was a vital component in its 12-win campaign.

> Runner-up: QB Joe Flacco — Quietly but steadi-
ly improved, turning in his best season (3,622 passing
yards, 25 TDs, 93.6 rating — all career bests). _

> Honorable mentions — Despite missing the
first six games, FS Ed Reed led the league with eight
interceptions. Pro Bowl K Billy Cundiff boomed 40
touchbacks and made 26 field goals.



Despite red flags — including a DUI arrest and ques-
tions about his drive — the Bengals took Dunlap in the
second round of the draft (54th overall) and were re-
warded for their faith in the former Florida Gator. His
9% sacks were second among rookies, trailing highly
touted Detroit Lions DT Ndamukong Suh, who had 10.
Dunlap’s effort is even more impressive considering
he didn’t play in four of the team’s first five games,
never started and didn’t bag his first quarterback until
Week 10. He appears to be a building block for a team
that will likely need them.

> Runner-up: WR Terrell Owens — He had 72
catches for 983 and nine TDs in 14 games, proving the

tank is far from empty ... even if his presence didn’t
produce a return trip to the playoffs.

Rookies.
impress in
losing season

The Bengals, who many predicted
would make back-to-back playoff
appearances for the first time in 28
years, capped the most disappoint-
ing season in the club’s 43 seasons
with a 13-7 loss to the Baltimore
Ravens.

Coach Marvin Lewis’ contract
expired after the game.

It marked Lewis’ third losing sea-
son in four years.and second in —
three with double-digit losses. The
season included a 10-game losing
streak that tied the 1992 team for
the longest inaseason. .

> What went right: Jermaine

’ Gresham set a team record for
_ catches by a rookie tight end (52)

and had four touchdowns. Defen-
sive end Carlos Dunlap (91 sacks)
was the first rookie to lead the team
in sacks since James Francis in 1990,
and wide receiver Jordan Shipley
led AFC rookies in catches (52) and -
yards (600). Defensive tackle Geno
Atkins also showed fase of pro-
gress.

> What went wrong: Terrell
Owens ended up leading the team
in receptions (72) and touchdowns
(nine), but his addition changed the
dynamic of the offense. The running:
game struggled because Owens and
Chad Ochocinco were weak run-
blockers. Ochocinco had 67 recep-
tions and four touchdowns. He had
two 100-yard games, but both
came when he got his yards in the





second half of blowouts. :

The Bengals ended up having 16
players on injured reserve; the big-
gest impact came on defense.

Mangini
takes the fall
for faltering

The Cleveland Browns fired coach
Eric Mangini after a second consec-
utive 5-11 season.

Mangini went 10-22 with the
Browns and finished his second sea-
son with a four-game losing streak.
Cleveland went 2-6 after an upset of
the New England Patriots on Nov. 7.

The Browns have lost 10 or more
games seven of the last eight years.

> What went right: Rookie QB
Colt McCoy showed enough to give
team President Mike Holmgren
and fans hope the Browns might fi-
nally have a starting quarterback to
build around. His statistics weren’t
off the charts, but he showed lead-
ership.

Peyton Hillis emerged as a legiti-

_ mate No. 1 running back. ~

> What went wrong: The
Browns had trouble closing games.
They finished in the top half of the
league defensively in three major
categories — points allowed, take-
aways and red-zone defense, yet.

they gave up fourth-quarter leads to

the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Kansas
City Chiefs, Baltimore Ravens:and
Jacksonville Jaguars.

Linebacker Scott Fujita, signed in
free agency, suffered a season-end-
ing knee.injury vs. the New York Jets
on Nov. 14. The run defense was
never the same.

The right side of the offensive line
is old with Floyd Womack at guard
and John St. Clair at tackle.

Josh Cribbs suffered a foot injury
vs. the Jets and for the first time in

_ his six-year career did not score a
touchdown.

Who knew Cleveland was committing highway
robbery by acquiring Hillis and two draft picks from
the Denver Broncos for disappointing QB Brady Quinn
last March? The people in Denver certainly feel swin-
dled. Hillis became the only Browns running back
outside of Hall of Famers Jim Brown and Leroy Kelly
to rush for 11 TDs in a season, though Hillis was quick
to dismiss such comparisons as absurd. He also ran
for 1,177 yards and caught 61 balls for 477 more. He
might not rival Brown’s talent, but for the time being
he’s rivaling his popularity in a city in need of folk he-
roes after LeBron James’ departure.

> Runner-up: T Joe Thomas — This offensive
cornerstone has been a Pro Bowler in all four of his
NEL seasons and provided many of the holes Hillis ran
through:

You don’t need to know much more than this:
Pittsburgh is 6-7 over the last two seasons in games
Polamalu has missed. The Steelers are 15-4 over the
same span when he has played. And who can forget
Polamalu timing the snap and vaulting the line of

scrimmage to tackle Tennessee Titans QB Kerry Col-

lins in Week 2? How about his crucial interception at -

the Buffalo Bills in Week 12? Then there was the
fourth-quarter strip sack of Baltimore Ravens QB Joe
Flacco in Week 13 that paved the way for the win that
largely secured a division title for Pittsburgh.

> Runner-up: WR Mike Wallace — Losing Santo-
nio Holmes didn’t hurt so much, as Wallace continued
to stretch defenses, racking up 1,257 yards on a mere

60 grabs (21-yard average).

Squad back
in familiar
territory

For the second time in three sea-

’ sons, the Steelers wrapped up the

No. 2 seed in the AFC playoffs and
will open at Heinz Field on Jan. 15
with the chance to go to their fifth
AFC Championship Game in the last -
10 years. »

It is the third time in their four
years under coach Mike Tomlin
that they have won the AFC North
and the 20th time they’ve won a di-
vision championship since the 1970
NFL merger, the most in the league.

“We've been saying for a couple
weeks now that it’s playoff time,
and now it really, really is,” quarter-
back Ben Roethlisberger said. “It’s
good to get that bye, guys get a little
rest, and playing at home i is always a
good thing.”

The Stealers held the.No. 2 seed
in 2008 and won the AFC Champi- -
onship Game at home after the top-
seeded Tennessee Titans lost their
first game. They went on to win

‘their sixth Super Bowl.

They fully expect to be playing at
the New England Patriots for the ti-
tle this time, provided they win

" their first game at home.

> By the numbers: The Steelers
had 21 interceptions this season,
their most since they had 23 in
1996. Troy Polamalu led the team
with seven, a career high.

> Trending: Mike Wallace ;
caught a 56-yard touchdown pass
from Roethlisberger on Sunday. It
was the eighth time those two com-
bined for a scoring play of 40 yards

~ ormore, which is a team record.

Front office
has its work
cut out for it

. Denver closed its worst-ever sea-
son at 4-12 with a 33-28 loss to the
San Diego Chargers.

“There’s a coaching search.
There’s the draft. There’s free agen-
cy. These next four months are huge
for our franchise,” said general man-
ager Brian Xanders, whose powers
are expected to increase with John
Elway soon to be his new boss. “We
want to make the right decisions
and move forward.”

> What went right: Wide re-

- ceiver Brandon Lloyd came out of
nowhere to have one of the most
dynamic seasons in franchise histo-
ry. In the eighth season of what had
been a journeyman career, Lloyd
led the NFL in receiving yards
(1,488) while averaging 18.8 yards a
catch and making 11 touchdown
grabs. ;

> What went wrong: Coach
Josh McDaniels was canned a
month before finishing his second
season as coach. ’

Denver's 471 points allowed were
two shy of the franchise high set in

‘1963. The 2,473 rushing yards al-
lowed were also second worst all-
time, and the 26 touchdowns on the
ground tied for first (2008).

An additional 3,780 passing yards
allowed were the fourth-worst
showing in team annals.

It adds up to a total yardage yield
(6,253) that represents the most
ever by a Denver team, coming on
an average gain of 5.9 yards — third

highest ever.
And the Broncos were last in the
NFL with 23 sacks.

Broncos MVP: WR Brandon Lloyd

Maybe departed coach Josh McDaniels knew what
he was doing when he dealt disgruntled WR Brandon
Marshall in the offseason. Lloyd stepped into the void
and emerged as a first-time Pro Bowler in his eighth
season. He piled up spectacular catches on a weekly
basis on his way to an NFL-high 1,448 yards through
the air. Eleven of Lloyd’s 77 receptions produced
touchdowns, and he maintained his production with
Kyle Orton dnd rookie Tim Tebow under center.

> Runner-up: CB Champ Bailey — Even at 32, he
proved he’s still among the game’s elite at his posi-
tion — just ask Kansas City Chiefs Pro Bowl WR
Dwayne Bowe, who was shut out by Bailey in
Week 13. But Bailey might play elsewhere in 2011 af-
ter the Broncos pulled a contract extension off the ta-
ble during the season.



Only the Houston Texans’ Arian Foster outrushed
Charles in 2010, though Foster received 97 more car-
ries and only outdistanced Charles’ 1,467 yards by
149. Charles’ 6.38 yards a carry rank second only to
Hall of Famer Jim Brown’s 6.40 average in 1963. In ad-
dition to powering the NFL’s top rushing attack (164.2
yards a game), Charles employed his sprinter’s speed
through the air, catching 45 passes for 468 yards; his
1,935 yards from scrimmage trailed only Foster's
2,220.

> Runner-up: QB Matt Cassel — For Chiefs fans
questioning whether he’s a franchise quarterback,
Cassel made a compelling case in 2010 with 27 touch-
down passes vs. seven interceptions. Kansas City lost
31-0 in the only game Cassel missed (appendectomy).

Loss brings
No. 4 seed,
Ravens

There might have been too much
looking ahead by the Kansas City
Chiefs as they closed out the regular
season with a 31-10 spanking by the
Oakland Raiders.

They game was only about playoff
seeding for the Chiefs, and by losing
and the Indianapolis Colts winning,
the Chiefs dropped from the third
seed in the AFC bracket for the play-
offs to No. 4. That will bring the Bal-
timore Ravens to Arrowhead Stadi-
um on Sunday for a wild-card game.

“We've got to be ready to go and
take advantage of the opportunity to

- play more games, especially having

one here at Arrowhead,” coach
Todd Haley said.

> By the numbers: Running
back Jamaal Charles was 0.02
yards away from tying or breaking a
47-year-old NFL record held-by Jim
Brown. In the 1963 season, Brown
averaged 6.40 yards a carry for -
1,863 yards on 291 carries. That’s
the highest average per carry in any
season for a runner with at least 150
attempts. Charles finished the 2010
season with 230 carries for 1,467
yards, an average of 6.38 yards a
carry. Charles had the record until
his final run, when he lost 1 yard. If
he had stopped at 229 carries for
1,468 yards, his average would have
been 6.41 yards a carry.

> Trending: This will be the first
postseason home game for the
Chiefs since 2003, and they have not
won a. home game in the playoffs
since the 1993 season when they
beat the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Key injuries,
poor de efense
spoil season

Instead of Dallas becoming the
first team in NFL history to play in -
and win a Super Bowl in its home
stadium — as owner Jerry Jones
predicted before the 2010 season
began — it became the first Cow-
boys team to go from first place in
the division one season to last the
following year.

Jones has already zeroed in on
~ promoting Jason Garrett from in-

terim head coach. —

> What went right: As far as
players are concerned, the team’s
_ decision to go with Doug Free at
left tackle in place of fired Flozell
Adams was a wise one. It was Free’s
first year as.a starter, but he proved
to be the team's best offensive line-
man in 2010.

> What went wrong: Franchise
quarterback Tony Romo suffered a
broken collarbone and missed the
_ last 10 games. Rookie wide receiver

Dez Bryant was slowed in camp ©
with a sprained ankle, and then,
when he showed he was ready to
take off and be the team’s prime
playmaker, he was lost for the sea-
son with a broken ankle. The offen-
sive line, namely guards Kyle Ko-
-Sier and Leonard Davis and right
tackle Marc Colombo, crumbled
because of injury and old age.

One year after finishing ninth in
the league in yards allowed and sec-
ond in points allowed, the Cowboys
broke team records for most points,
yards and passing touchdowns al-
Jowed in a season. Eight receivers
topped 100 yards against Dallas; and

Ware's three-sack performance in Week 17 gave
him his second sack title in three years as he finished
with 151. He has been a constant, never missing a

game in his six-year career while averaging 0.83 sacks -

a game over the duration. But he was a rare bright

spot in 2010 on a defense that undermined the Cow-

boys for much of the year and allowed the most
points (436) in the NFC.

> Runner-up: TE Jason Witten — He earned a
seventh Pro Bowl nod and eclipsed 1,000 receiving
yards for the third time in four years. Witten also
caught 94 balls for the second consecutive season,
pacing the team even though Dallas was forced to
start three quarterbacks in 2010. He also reached the
600 plateau for career catches, becoming the fourth
tight end to do so. .

With Michael Strahan and Antonio Pierce gone,
Tuck has become the primary physical and vocal pres-_
ence on the Giants defense, which ranked seventh
overall in 2010. Teammates credited Tuck’s halftime
speech for spurring a come-from-behind win against
the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 12. He tied Osi
Umenyiora for the team lead with 11% sacks but also
chipped in with 76 tackles, quite a high figure for a

- defensive lineman.

> Runner-up: OL Rich Seubert — He tore up his
knee in the regular-season finale, but Seubert was a

reliable cog on an offensive line that was constantly in .

flux. He started all 16 games and smoothly shifted
from left guard to center amid Shaun O’Hara’s season-
long injury woes. |

Late flops
overshadow
10 victories

As far as the Giants are con-
cerned, their 10-6 record, capped
by a 17-14 win against the Washing-
ton Redskins in the regular-season
finale, was the good news.

However, their 10-win season
probably will be overshadowed by
68 minutes of late-season play in
which, despite having a chance to
win the NFC East and secure a play-
off berth, they failed to get it done
twice.

“To win the 10 games is nice, but
we wanted to win the 10 games so
we could get a chance to play next
week as well,” coach Tom Cough-
lin said. “I told (the players) to enjoy
the win and not worry about the
other part of it, because they had
earnedit.” _

> What went right: After a di-
sastrous 2009 season, the Giants de-
fense rebounded fairly well under
first-year coordinator Perry Fewell.

In particular, New York's run de-
fense shut down'some of the ;
league’s best running backs, such as -
the Minnesota Vikings’ Adrian Pe-
terson and Houston Texans’ Arian
Foster. The defense also improved its
sack total from 32 a year ago to 46

- and posted 38 takeaways.

Sizzling QB
Rodgers a big
challenge

The Eagles head into Sunday’s ©
first-round playoff battle against the
Green Bay Packers with the second-
highest scoring offense in the NFL.

But if they hope to get past the
Packers, they're going to have to fig-
ure out a way to slow down red-hot
Aaron Rodgers, who will be taking
aim at a defense that allowed a fran-
chise-record 31 touchdown passes
this season.

“We've got to do extra studying,”
cornerback Joselio Hanson said.

The Eagles have faced Rodgers
once this season. They lost 27-20 to
the Packers at home in Week 1.
They held Rodgers to 188 passing
-yards and intercepted him twice.

But injuries have taken their toll

on coordinator Sean McDermott’s

young defense. It has a rookie sev-
enth-rounder at middle linebacker
(Jamar Chaney), a rookie seventh-
rounder at free safety (Kurt Cole-
man) and a twice-waived journey-
man with nine career starts (Dimi-
tri Patterson) at one cornerback
spot. To make matters-worse, their
other corner, Asante Samuel, is
playing on an ailing knee.

> By the numbers: The Eagles,
who committed nine turnovers in
the first nine games, have turned
the ball over 16 times in the last~
seven games. .

> Lineup watch: Middle line-
backer Stewart Bradley, who has
missed the last three games with a
dislocated elbow, is expected to re-
turn Sunday.

Eagles MVP: QB Michael Vick

He's better than ever, thanks to a renewed dedica-
tion to the game after his two-season absence fol-
lowed a dogfighting conviction in 2007. Vick is gar-
nering serious league-wide MVP consideration after
his prodigious talent and newly revealed leadership
launched the Eagles to an NFC East championship.
Despite missing four games, he established career .
bests in passing yards (3,018), touchdown passes
(21), completion percentage (62.6%), passer rating
(100.2) and TD runs (nine). Not bad for a guy who
began the year as Kevin Kolb’s backup.

> Runner-up: RB LeSean McCoy — He appeared
to learn a thing or two from former teammate Brian
Westbrook. McCoy led the Eagles (and all NFL backs)
with 78 receptions to go with 1,080 rushing yards
and nine total TDs for the NFC’s No. 1 offense.



Slim pickings on a team that seemed to be in dis-
array from Day One. Hall didn’t ingratiate himself to
the coaches after griping he should have been locked
up with Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson, who al- .
most single-handedly beat Washington in Week 2. But
credit Hall for his competitive spirit and the tide-turn-
ing efforts he provided in wins vs. the Dallas Cowboys
and Chicago Bears. Hall tied for fifth in the league with

’ six picks, and he returned one of his four in Week 7 at

Chicago for a touchdown. He was the Redskins’ lone
Pro Bowl rep, though SS LaRon Landry might have
had a strong case had his Achilles not betrayed him.

> Runner-up: WR Santana Moss — The offense’s
most reliable player (93 receptions for 1,115 yards
and six TDs).

— Nate Davis

New faces
but another
losing year

Plenty has changed for the Red-
skins as they finished another losing
season. Under coach Mike Shana-
han, the quarterback was Rex
Grossman. The running back was
Ryan Torain.

> What went right: The Red-
skins started off strong under Sha-
nahan witha 4-3 record. .

Cornerback DeAngelo Hall (six
interceptions, two touchdowns)
made the Pro Bowl. Santana Moss
had a career-high 93 catches. Tight
end Chris Cooley bounced back
from a broken ankle to give the Red-
skins three targets with at least 800
yards for the first time since 1989.

> What went wrong: Jim Has-
lett’s 3-4 defense allowed 389.3
yards a game. The Redskins lost .
again to the Detroit Lions as well as
to the Houston Texans, St. Louis
Rams and Minnesota Vikings and
failed to take the Tampa Bay Bucca-
neers to overtime because of a
botched extra-point attempt. The
ballyhooed trade of two draft picks
for six-time Pro Bowl quarterback
Donovan McNabb failed when he
struggled, and the Shanahans decid-
ed he couldn't run their offense.

The switch from the 4-3 defense
ticked off Albert Haynesworth so
much that the biggest free agent
signee of 2009 skipped the offsea-
son and never became more than a
spare part. -

Clinton Portis beat out veteran
challengers Larry Johnson and Wil-
lie Parker to remain the No. 1 back
but then couldn't stay healthy and is




likely to become an ex-Redskin.

Season in review
NFC South





Squad happy
to be at home
for postseason

After defeating the Carolina Pan-
thers on Sunday, coach Mike Smith
has guided the Falcons to the play-
offs for the second time in three sea-
sons. They won the NFC South and
secured home-field advantage
throughout the playoffs.

The Falcons will see the New Or-
leans Saints in the divisional round if
the Saints can handle the Seattle
Seahawks and the Philadelphia Ea-
gles take care of the No. eee,

| Falcons MVP: WR Roddy White

With his fourth consecutive 1,000-yard receiving -
season, White is earning widespread recognition as
one of the game’s elite wideouts. He topped the NFL
with a career-high 115 receptions and paced the NFC
with 1,389 yards. And who can forget his game-sav-

- ing strip of San Francisco 49ers CB Nate Clements af-

ter he picked off Falcons QB Matt Ryan in the waning
minutes of Atlanta's Week 4 win? Ryan subsequently
drove Atlanta to a game-winning field goal.

> Runner-up: Ryan — A tough.choice as he’s one
of six other Falcons ticketed to join White in the Pro
Bowl. But Ryan had his best statistical season.(3,705
yards, 28 TD passes, 91.0 passer rating) on his way to
driving Atlanta to the top seed in the NFC playoffs,
which bodes well, given cher dominance at the Geor-
gia Dome.



By Otto Greule Jr., Gey idge’
Go-to guy: The Falcons’ Roddy White caught 10
touchdown passes during the regular season.

Points, wins
‘prove scarce
during 2010

The Panthers have a long way to
go to regain their status as one of
the elite teams in the NFC.

Carolina finished with the NFL’s
worst record at 2-14 and set a fran-
chise record for fewest points
scored (196) and lowest passer rat-
ing (56.9) in a season, leading to the
organization’s decision to fire coach

~ John Fox and his staff.
- If Stanford’s Andrew Luck comes
out, it’s believed the Panthers will

“Familiarity is always good,” ° even though they just invested a

“But there is a good chance, a

really good chance, that we're going .

‘to play somebody that we've al-
ready played once before. That will
bea fun next month. That’s how we
are looking at it as a coaching staff
and as an organization.”

The Falcons don’t have any major ~

injuries but welcome the bye week
to help them rest.
> By the numbers: Wide receiv-

er Roddy White ended the season ~

with 115 receptions, breaking Te-

Trance Mathis’ team record of 111

set in 1994. White set his second.
- franchise record of the afternoon -

Maybe he won’t make Carolina fans forget long-
gone Julius Peppers, but Johnson stepped up with
11% sacks —.tied for seventh in the NFL — while fill-
ing the breach. Peppers produced eight in his first sea-
son with the Chicago Bears, though at a much loftier
price tag than Johnson. The pressure Johnson provid-
ed helped the Panthers finish 11th in pass defense, a
small positive for a team that had little to smile about
in a 2-14 debacle of a season.

‘> Runner-up: T Jordan Gross — He rebounded
from a broken leg in 2009 to earn his second Pro Bowl
invite. Gross also helped the running game get on
track late in the year despite a pass-challenged offense
that lost RB DeAngelo Williams and RT Jeff Otah to
season-ending injuries. :

Injuries,
errors cause
for concern

The Saints (11-5) will have to go
on the road Saturday to take on the
NFC West champion Seattle Sea-
hawks (7-9) at Qwest Field with a
spot in the divisional playoffs on the
line.

With three offensive starters and
two other key players already sitting
on the bench last weekend because ”
of injuries, coach Sean Payton
watched three more leave in the
first quarter against the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers as starting free safety
Malcolm Jenkins, tight end Jim-
my Graham and running back
Chris Ivory went out.

Besides the injuries, the Saints
committed three turnovers and
played sloppily in all three phases of
the game, which could be a recipe
for disaster in the playoffs. .

“I thought we did a lot of things
that prevent you from winning
games,” Payton said, “some things
that we'll have to clean up if we're
to have any type of success in this
second season.”

> Lineup watch: Ivory’s injury
could leave the Saints with Reggie
Bush and Julius Jones at halfback
for the wild-card game.

> By the numbers: One is the
number of postseason games New
Orleans has won away from home
in its 44-year history. The only vic-
tory for the Saints, who will have to
play on the road in the wild-card
round Saturday and in the divisional -





























round if they make it that far, came
last February when they took a 31-
17 win against the Indianapolis Colts
in Super Bow! XLIV in South Florida.

The Super Bowl XLIV MVP earned a Pro Bowl
ticket for the fourth time in his five-year New Orleans
tenure. Brees topped 400 completions for the third
time (no one else has done it twice) and again led the
league by completing 68.1% of his passes. His 22,918
passing yards with the Saints are the most ever over a
five-year stretch. Most important, he put New Or-
leans in position to defend its title.

> Runner-up: FS Malcolm Jenkins — He sup-
planted 2009 all-pro Darren Sharper as the starting
free safety and top defensive player. Jenkins made 64
tackles and — in Sharper-esque style — returned one
of his two interceptions 96 yards for a score. With
Jenkins’ ability to play center field and cover slot re-
ceivers, the Saints are hoping he can overcome a
Week 17 injury and return for the playoffs.

He doesn’t garner the coverage of fellow 2009 first-
round picks Matthew Stafford and Mark Sanchez, but
Freeman could end up being the best of the bunch
with his 25-touchdown, six-interception season as
evidence. Freeman, 6-6, 248 pounds, led the Bucca-
neers to 10 wins and the cusp of a playoff berth,

- thanks in large part to his ability to pull out wins in
the fourth quarter. With emerging rookies LeGarrette .

Blount and Mike Williams, Tampa Bay has an impres-
sive offensive core that could score big in future years.

> Runner-up: MLB Barrett Ruud — He gets over-
shadowed by Patrick Willis and Brian Urlacher in the
NEC, but he’s the glue to an underrated defense
(ninth-fewest points allowed) and topped 100 tackles
for the fourth consecutive season.

10 wins not
uite enough
or playoffs

When coach Raheem Morris’
told his young team they were going
to be in a race to 10 wins, it was met
with a lot of snickers. But Tampa
Bay won its 10th game of the season
by defeating the New Orleans Saints
23-13 Sunday. ;

“We were just young enough and
just dumb enough to believe it,”
cornerback Ronde Barber said of
Morris’ proclamation.

But the Bucs won't be in the play-
offs.

Tampa Bay became the first NFC
team since 1991 to post double-dig-
it victories and not earn a spot in
the postseason when the Green Bay
Packers defeated the Chicago Bears
10-3 at Lambeau Field.

> What went right: Quarter-
back Josh Freeman is the real deal.
In his second season, Freeman was
spectacular. He finished with 25
touchdown passes and six intercep-.
tions, matching a club record.

Running back LeGarrette
Blount, who bulled his way to 66
yards on 19 carries Sunday, finished
with 1,007 for the season despite
Not seeing extensive playing time
until the final 11 games.

Mike Williams, who led all roo-
kies in receiving, had 964 yards and
caught his 1 1th touchdown pass
Sunday.

> What went wrong: The Bucs
had too many injuries. They lost six
starters in a span of three weeks
and eight starters over five weeks.

They also failed to finish close: -

Bye provides
time to fix .
ailing offense

Coach Lovie Smith acknowl-
edged the Bears weren't playing for
much against the Green Bay Pack-
ers, but he kept his starters in for
the entire game as he had hinted he
would do during the week.

“Knowing that we had the bye.
week, we wererrt playing for an aw-
ful lot,” Smith said. “But we wanted
to just keep momentum going. We
hadn't peaked yet. We still thought
there were some things we could
improve upon, and that’s what we _
went into the game to do.”

Two interceptions and six sacks
helped keep the Bears out of the
end zone in the 10-3 loss. The in-
ability of the offense to move for
much of the day has to be a concern
for the Bears as they prepare for a
home playoff game Jan. 16.

The Bears hope the bye week will
provide time to rehab an offense
that managed 227 total yards.

> Trending: After being the only
team in the NFL to run the ball more
than it threw it in the eight weeks
leading up to the season finale, the.
Bears slipped back into the airborne
ways that nagged them during a43
start, with 45 dropbacks and 20
running plays.

> By the numbers: RB Matt
Forte continues to get stronger. His
91-yard rushing effort on 15 at-
tempts last weekend for a 6.1-yard
average marked the fifth time in six
weeks he averaged 4.9 yards a carry
or more.

Season in review

Bears MVP: DE Julius Peppers

Chicago's $92 million man proved worthy of the
investment in 2010. Though he tied for the team lead
with eight sacks, his impact was wide-ranging and
trickled down on a unit that will send LBs Lance
Briggs and resurgent Brian Urlacher to the Pro Bowl
with Peppers — assuming the NFC North champions
don’t reach Super Bowl XLV. The Bears ranked fourth
in points allowed (286) and takeaways (35), major

improvements from 2009.

> Runner-up: PR-WR Devin Hester —

He re-

emerged as the game’s top return man, setting a sin-
gle-season record with a 17.1-yard average on punt
returns. Hester took three back for touchdowns, giv-.
ing him 14 combined punt- and kickoff-retugn scores
in his career, the most ever. He also chipped in with
AO catches for 475 yards and four TDs on offense.

Lions MVP: DT Ndamukong Suh

After years of barren drafts, Detroit got it right by
grabbing Suh with the second overall pick in April. He
justified his predraft hype with 10 sacks — most
among rookies — and 66 tackles, tops. among fresh-
man defensive linemen. He also picked off a pass and
sealed a Week 8 win against the Washington Redskins
by returning a fumble 17 yards for a touchdown. He's
one of the many reasons the upcoming decade could
be the opposite of the one the long downtrodden
Lions are putting behind them.

> Runner-up: WR Calvin Johnson — “Megatron”
transformed into a Pro Bowler in 2010, compiling his
second season in the last three with 75-plus catches,
1,100-plus yards and 12 TD grabs. Imagine what he
might do if QB Matthew Stafford ever stays healthy.

Wins lead
to renewed
optimism

This season, the Lions took what
might seem like baby steps to other
franchises, but they mark a major
turnaround as Detroit learned how

. to win.

Gone is the NFL-record 26-game
road losing streak. Gone is the 19-
game losing streak within the NFC
North. They closed the season with
a four-game winning streak, the first
since 1999.

“We want to give this city a win-
ner,” C Dominic Raiola said.

> What went right: With a
good mix of veterans (Kyle Vanden
Bosch, Corey Williams, Cliff Avril)
and dynamic young players (Nda-
mukong Suh, Sammie Hill), the
Lions had one of the best defensive -
fronts in the league.

The offensive line, intact for a sec- -
ond full season, also came together.
The Lions allowed the fewest sacks
in the NFC. Despite injuries to RBs
Jahvid Best and Kevin Smith, the

-Tun game finally started to churn.

> What went wrong: There is
no telling how different the season
might have gone had franchise
QB Matthew Stafford remained
healthy. He started three games this
season. The Lions won the one game
he finished and were ahead in the
other two before he injured his right
shoulder.

That they managed to cobble to-

gether six wins and stay competi-

tive while playing backups Shaun
Hill and Drew Stanton proved re-

markable.

Season in review
NFC North



Eagles will
start Vick at
QB this time

The Packers, who have a league-
high 15 players on injured reserve
(including six starters), needed to
win their final two games to qualify
as the last team in from the NFC.
They will play at the Philadelphia
Eagles in a wild-card game Sunday.

The rematch between the Pack-
ers and Eagles comes four months
after Green Bay prevailed 27-20 in
the Sept. 12 season opener at Lin-
coln Financial Field.

Michael Vick didn’t start that
‘game, but the league MVP candi-
date gave Green Bay’s defense fits °
with his arm (175 passing yards)
and legs (103 rushing yards) in
nearly rallying the Eagles from a
20-3 deficit in the second half.

“I think they're a different team
now,” Green Bay quarterback Aar-
on Rodgers said. “Obviously, Mi-
chael is playing at a very high level.
He’s a tough guy to scheme

Packers MVP: OLB Clay Matthews

The second-year player earned a Pro Bowl return
and is a leading candidate for defensive player of the
year honors after registering 134 sacks — fourth in
the league. With seven sacks in the first four games,
Matthews quickly established himself as the defender
offenses had to account for, though it really wasn’t a
difficult decision on a defense riddled with injuries.
Green Bay allowed the fewest points in the NFC (240)
and ranks fifth overall heading into postseason.

_ > Runner-up: QB Aaron Rodgers — He was
probably the most notable Pro Bowl snub, though it’s
tough to discount Michael Vick, Drew Brees and Matt
Ryan in the NFC. Rodgers turned in another outstand-
ing season and has helped set the stage for a Green
Bay playoff run despite losing supporting players such
as RB Ryan Grant and TE Jermichael Finley.

Vikings MVP: RB Adrian Peterson

His 1,298 rushing yards ranked sixth in the NFL,
though it was the lowest output of his four-year ca-
reer. Peterson battled injuries in the second half of the
season and a sputtering offense for most of it yet man-
aged to garner Pro Bowl accolades for the fourth time.
And he vastly improved in one area, fumbling once in_
2010 after coughing up the ball 20 times in his first



By Morry Gash, AP.

One to watch: Second-year player Clay Mat-
thews could win defensive player of the year.



Frazier to stay
after season

of discontent

The Vikings announced Monday
that they were removing the in-
terim tag from coach Leslie Fra-
Zier’s title. He took over Nov. 22
when Brad Childress was fired, and
the Vikings went 3-3 under the 51-
year-old after a 3-7 start.

The defensive coordinator under
Childress and a former Chicago
Bears cornerback, Frazier drew pos-
itive reviews from the players for his
steady approach. Frazier is the
eighth coach in the franchise’s
50-year history.

> What went right: Pro Bowl
running back Adrian Peterson
rushed for more than 1,000 yards
for the fourth time in his four NFL
seasons. He lost one fumble after
losing 13 of 20 fumbles in his first
three seasons.

> What went wrong: Brett
Favre went from having one of his
best seasons to one of his worst.

What ultimately cost Childress his
job — along with winning three
times in the first 10 games — was
his decision to jettison wide receiv-
er Randy Moss from the roster with-
out first getting approval from own-

three seasons.

> Runner-up: OLB Chad Greenway — The NFC’s
top tackler with 144 stops, Greenway could be in for a
huge payday in the coming months following the best
season of the 2006 first-round pick’s five-year career.
On a team loaded with potential free agents, he’s one

against.”

> Lineup watch: Defensive end
Cullen Jenkins, who missed the fi-
nal four games because of a calf
strain, hopes to be ready for the
playoff opener. The Packers didn’t



take any chances in rushing Jenkins
back after he aggravated the injury
Dec. 5. Jenkins has a career-high
seven sacks.
> By the numbers: The Packers
have lost two consecutive games in
the playoffs, both in overtime. They
lost 51-45 at the Arizona Cardinals
in the wild-card round last season
and 23-20 at home to the New York
-Giants for the NFC championship in
the 2007 season.

ership to make the move:

The Vikings had spent a third-
round draft pick to obtain Moss in
October, but after four games Chil-
dress decided he had seen enough
of the mercurial receiver.

While Frazier brought stability to
the situation when he was named
to the job on an interim basis, the

Vikings’ season reached the be-

yond-belief point Dec. 12 when the
roof of the Metrodome collapsed.

Drop-off was
steeper than.
expected —

The Cardinals lost important play-
ers off their playoff teams of 2008
and 2009, but they thought they
had enough promising youngsters
to compensate enough to compete
in the NFC West.

Instead, the losses proved to be
overwhelming. There was no re-
placing quarterback Kurt Warner,
who retired. Defensively, the Cardi-
nals missed inside linebacker Karlos
Dansby’s versatility.

> What went right: Center Lyle
Sendlein and guards Deuce Lutui
and Alan Faneca formed a reliable
core. Spee

The most encouraging develop-
ment for the Cardinals was the play
of their rookie class, nearly all of
whom contributed.

> What went wrong: At quar-
terback, coach Ken Whisenhunt
didn’t believe in Matt Leinart, pro-
moting Derek Anderson to the
starting job. But as he was while
with the Cleveland Browns, Ander-
son was maddeningly inaccurate. He
didn’t get much help, but he also
consistently missed open receivers.

Strong safety Adrian Wilson
played poor pass defense all season.
Defensive end Darnell Dockett had
a down season, as did cornerback
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
All three were Pro Bowlers in 2009.

Running back Chris “Beanie”
Wells, a first-round pick in 2009,
hasn't established himself. And de-
fensive end Calais Campbell, who
has the ability to make the Pro







Bowl, took a step backward.

Somehow he managed to reel in 90 catches for
1,137 yards and six touchdowns while toiling on an
abysmal offense that never remotely recovered from
the offseason retirément-of QB Kurt Warner and ©
didn’t have WR Anquan Boldin to occasionally draw
coverage away from Fitzgerald. And in a league
pocked with chirpy wideouts, Fitzgerald never
groused while playing with scattershot QB Derek An-
derson‘and two rookie signal-callers.

> Runner-up: Returner LaRod Stephens-Howl-

- ing — He did all he could for an offense in dire need of

help, averaging 27.2 yards on kickoff returns while -
taking two of them the distance. In 13 games, Ste-
phens-Howling also pitched in with 224 yards on 39
touches from scrimmage and imade four special-

teams tackles.

. The battle-scarred back produced a sixth consec-
utive.1,000-yard season despite being the component

opposing defenses usually focused on negating. A few
more touches in the regular-season finale against the
Seattle Seahawks — Jackson had 11 carries and four

receptions in a tight game

— might have propelled the

Cinderella Rams to the NFC West crown. His steady-
ing presence was a key to the development of rookie.
QB Sam Bradford and a major reason St. Louis man-
aged seven wins in 2010 after totaling six the previous

three seasons.

> Runner-up: Bradford— The top pick of the -
2010 draft produced one of the most remarkable roo-
kie seasons by a quarterback, sparking the team’s sur-
prise resurgence while proving his durability,

Team looks
to build on

2010 success

It was not the way the Rams envi-
sioned their regular season ending.
After winning six games over the
last three seasons, including one in
2009, the Rams were intent on.
showing the NFL they were a wor-
thy NFC West team by beating the
Seattle Seahawks and entering the
playoffs with.an 8-8 record.

But the Rams were held to 184
total yards in a 16-6 loss, sending
Seattle to the postseason as the NFC
west representative with a 7-9 Tec-
or
__ > What went right: At the top of
the list is quarterback Sam Brad-
ford, who set rookie records for
pass attempts (590) and comple-
tions (354) and had the second-
most passing yards ever by a rookie
(3,512). He took every offensive
snap and established himself as a
leader.

The offensive'line, which had
been an unstable group for several
seasons, did a solid job.

In the second season of coach
Steve Spagnuolo’s defensive sys-
tem, significant improvement was
made. Defensive ends Chris Long
and James Hall had outstanding
seasons, as did defensive tackle
Fred Robbins and middle lineback-
er James Laurinaitis.

> What went wrong: The lack
of consistent playmakers at wide re-
ceiver reduced the offense to run-
ning back Steven Jackson banging
frequently against eight in the box
and a large number of short passes

- by Bradford. He often-had (6 check

down to underneath routes.

Season in review
NFC West



Questions
remain at
quarterback

Whoever takes over as 49ers

head coach will find a roster that’s
-full of talent, arguably more so than
any other team in the NFC West.

The 49ers ended the regular sea-
son with vacancies at head coach
and general manager, but there will
be dozens more openings on a ros-
ter that might not be as set as it ap-
pears.

> What went right: Before the
season began, the 49ers signed their
two best players, linebacker Patrick
Willis and tight end Vernon Davis,
to long-term deals. The team also
revamped its offensive line by draft-
ing two linemen, tackle Anthony
Davis and guard Mike lupati, in the
first round. rs

On defense, the 49ers did not al-
low a 100-yard rusher in any games
during 2010.

The core of the defense is solid
with players such as Willis and de-
fensive end Justin Smith, both of
whom will go to the Pro Bowl for
the second season in a row.

> What went wrong: As solid as

. the roster is in other areas, three of
the four quarterbacks on the roster
aren’t under contract next season.
Departed coach Mike Singletary
rested the season on Alex Smith's
shoulders but then didn’t give Smith
the start in the most critical game of

49ers MVP: ILB Patrick Willis

He remains on track as Ray Lewis’ heir apparent as
the league’s premier inside linebacker. However,
2010 was a disappointing season for Willis as injuries
limited him to a career-low 128 tackles and forced
him to miss the first game of his career (though he
was still honored as a Pro Bowler for the fourth time
in his four-year NFL career). Worse, the 49ers tanked
despite widespread expectations that they'd break an
eight-season playoff drought by assuming control of
an NFC West weakened by the retirement of Arizona
Cardinals QB Kurt Warner.

> Runner-up: TE Vernon Davis — Despite a rota-
tion at quarterback and the September firing of coor-
dinator Jimmy Raye, Davis managed respectable
numbers, leading the club with 56 catches for 914
yards and seven scores.

Seahawks MVP: WR Mike Williams

Just when the 10th pick of the 2005 draft seemed
out.of chances, he received a lifeline when his college
coach, Pete Carroll, took over in Seattle. Williams re-
‘sponded by getting in shape and displaying the poten-
tial‘he last showed at Southern California. Injuries cost
him two games, but Williams caught 65 passes for
751 yards — easily outpacing his career totals before
the season ~ and used his 6-5, 235-pound frame to
become the possession receiver Carroll sought.

> Runner-up: Returner Leon Washington — He
bounced back from a gruesome broken leg suffered in
2009 to re-establish himself as a top returner. Wash-
ington averaged 25.6 yards on kickoffs, and two of his
league-high three touchdowns in that phase came in
an upset of the San Diego Chargers in Week 3.

Seahawks statistics



‘Ups and
downs, but
we're here’

It wasn’t pretty, but the Seahawks
are the party crashers in the NFC
playoffs.

Seattle became the first team in
league history to make the postsea-
son with a losing record during a
non-strike year with a 16-6 win
against the St. Louis Rams at Qwest
Field. ~

Both teams finished 7-9, but Seat-
tle advanced to the postseason be-
cause it had a better division record
(4-2 vs. 3-3). But don’t ask Sea-
hawks players:about their record.

“It was a lot of ups and downs,
but we're here,” kick returner Leon
Washington said. “And we're going
to see what happens.”

The Seahawks won their fifth NFC
West division title. And as division
champions, they host the fifth-seed- _
ed New Orleans Saints on Saturday.

The Seahawks played the Saints
earlier this year, losing at New Or-
leans 34-19, so they are looking for-
ward to facing the champs again.

> Lineup watch: Tyler Polum-
bus made his first career start at left
guard and helped the Seahawks

*Twas the season of waiver-wire finds

Back in late August, think about the status of
the players in this lineup: Michael Vick, Peyton
Hillis, Darren McFadden, Brandon Lloyd, Steve
Johnson and Marcedes Lewis.

Not on any of your old draft lists? Didn't
think so. They were either not on anybody's
tankings or were so far buried that you would
jraft them very late, if at all.

It turns out that the first few weeks on the
waiver wire were more important than many
draft picks, because that group of players
turned into a virtual all-star team.

A look at the best and worst of the 2010 fan-
tasy season. ;

NFL
fantasy

By Matt Pitzer

For how he came out of nowhere and his in-.

credible stats, Vick gets this award. Consider
that of the 10 games in which he played from
start to finish, the Philadelphia Eagles quarter-
back failed to hit multiple touchdowns only
once. And for those leagues that reward rush-
ing TDs more than passing, Vick ran for a score
in seven of his final eight games.

Those stats from his 10 complete games will
spark one of the most important debates for
2011: Should Vick be the No. 1 overall pick?
Based on his production this season, the an-
swer seems to be yes. But if you're looking for
a quarterback to play more than 12 games, it’s
probably no.

The secret is out on Vick, As he took a
pounding while the season wore on, the mis-

_takes piled up and the Eagles were a fourth-
quarter miracle away from losing three of
Vick’s final five starts.

If you draft Vick, you will have to draft Kevin
Kolb (if he returns to Philadelphia); Kolb is a_
nice player but nota first-rounder.

Quarterback

Among quarterbacks who were closer to -
full-timers, Tom Brady was the best with his
league-leading 36 TD passes against a league-
’ low four interceptions. Brady had at least two
TD passes every game from Week 9 on and
strapped many fantasy teams on his back.

Also valuable: Philip Rivers (except for
Week 16), Aaron Rodgers (except for missing
Week 15) and old reliables Peyton Manning
and Drew Brees.

Bust: Hard to get past Brett Favre, because
the last season of his career was the worst (11
TDs, 19 interceptions) by a considérable mar-
gin. You also would not have.been happy with
Tony Romo playing six games for the Dallas
Cowboys before getting hurt or with Donovan









By Howard Smith, US Presswire

Fantasy explosion: Eagles quarterback Michael Vick sat on the waiver wire in many leagues to "
start the 2010 season. He might be the No. 1 overall pick to start the 2011 season.

McNabb’s disastrous year with the Washington
Redskins in which he threw his fewest TD
passes (14) since his rookie season.

. Names to remember: Vick is the most sig-
nificant, but keep track of Tampa Bay Bucca-
neers second-year star Josh Freeman, the Buf-
falo Bills’ Ryan Fitzpatrick and, of course,
late-season phenom Tim Tebow with the Den-
ver Broncos.

Running back

Arian Foster started.to emerge as a sleeper in
preseason, so the Houston Texans’ league-lead-

ing rushing campaign and 18 overall TDs were —

not a total shock. Getting him, as you could
have, in the fourth or fifth round made him the
most compelling back, because he also led the
league in yards from scrimmage. Along with
Hillis and McFadden, unsung BenJarvus Green-
Ellis and his 13 TDs were a great find in the late
rounds or off the waiver wire.

The other elite backs also were incomplete.
Jamaal Charles had the yards but not the TDs;
Chris Johnson and Adrian Peterson did not

dominate as high first-rounders should; Mau-

tice Jones-Drew had a good half-season; and
Ahmad Bradshaw was frustrating because his
fumbling problem led to erratic playing time.
Bust: Injuries always plague this position,

and some of the big ones were to Frank Gore,
DeAngelo Williams, Ryan Grant and Knowshon
Moreno. Considering how great the Green Bay
Packers offense was, Grant could have been
brilliant. Williams, with 361 yards and one TD
in six games, was on his way to being a bust
before getting hurt.

‘Names to remember: Think about whether

¢ PLAYER NAME (BEN ROETHLISBERGER)

McFadden’s season was legitimate — he was
great when he played but still dealt with inju-
ries. While rookies Jahvid Best and Ryan Math-
ews had their struggles, each also could be in
position for substantial improvement.

Wide receiver

In point-per-receptions leagues, beating
Roddy White and his league- -leading 115 catch-
es is tough to do. White also finished second in
yards and had a respectable 10 TDs. It was
White’s consistent production that made him
valuable. But despite five 100-yard games, he
was over 111 only twice.

Brandon Lloyd was a big surprise — leading
the league in receiving yards with 1,448. And
Dwayne Bowe was tough to beat at his best. He
had 14 of his league-high 15 receiving TDs be-
tween Weeks 3 and 12 but was nearly worth-
less in Weeks 13-15.

Bust: It was a bad season for many big -
names. Larry Fitzgerald was done in by the Ari-
zona Cardinals’ quarterback problems, and
Miles Austin never was the regular threat he
was in 2009. Randy Moss torpedoed plenty of

‘hopes, in fantasy and around the NFL, while

Brandon Marshall never got the consistent
quarterback play he needed.

Names to remember: How the Broncos
proceed in the offseason will help determine
Lloyd's future. Hakeem Nicks proved if he stays

healthy, he can be a top-10 receiver; and the
Pittsburgh Steelers’ Mike Wallace does not
catch a lot of passes (60) but still finished fifth
in the NFL in receiving yards (1,267) thanks to
his 21.0 yards a catch average.

Tight end

Antonio Gates was on his way to one of the
best seasons in tight end history before injuries
ruined things and kept him to 50 catches for °
782 yards and 10 TDs in 10 games. While there
was no other dominant tigkt end, the Cow-
boys’ Jason Witten was second best thanks to a
late-season surge. Lewis had eight touchdowns
for the Jacksonville Jaguars in the first 11:
weeks, two after that.

Bust: Injuries kept Dallas Clark and Owen
Daniels from their typical production. Clark
was the biggest bust considering he was a high
draft pick. Visanthe Shiancoe was a flop, going
from 11 TDs to two. And Vernon Davis wound
up with decent numbers but was tough to start .
with the inconsistent San Francisco 49ers; he
had seven games with 36 yards or fewer.

Names to remember: The New England Pa-
triots’ rookie duo of Rob Gronkowski (10 TDs)
and Aaron Hernandez (six TDs) is one to watch
for years. The problem will be if the presence
of both hampers the value of each. Brandon
Pettigrew also started to emerge as a top talent

for the Detroit Lions.

Kicker

Kickers are easy to rate because the only
thing that matters is points, and David Akers
with his league-leading 143 points for the Ea- _
gles was tops. Hot on his heels, though, was
perhaps the biggest surprise of the season at
any position — the Oakland Raiders’ Sebastian
Janikowski, with 142 points. Not many owners
had the courage to start him regularly.

Bust: Hard to count busts at this position,
because most people invest so little in kickers
in terms of draft picks and because it is so easy
to switch off a disappointment, but several top
picks were disappointing. With 109 points,
Nate Kaeding had-the worst season of his ca-
reer for the San Diego Chargers. The Minnesota
Vikings’ Ryan Longwell went from 127 and 132
points the last two seasons to 81, and the Patri-
ots shut down Stephen Gostkowski after eight
games because of a thigh injury.

Defense/special teams

_. The best fantasy defense was nowhere’close
to the best real defense. Arizona had an incred-
ible 12 total return TDs (seven fumbles, three
interceptions, two kickoffs) despite allowing
27.1 points a game. New England manufac-
tured nine return TDs and led the league in in-
terceptions, while Pittsburgh was first in points .
allowed and sacks.

Bust: The Vikings were a regular fantasy
start during their run to the NFC title game last
season but were one of the worst units in 2010
as their season went down the drain. Also dis-
appointing were the New Orleans Saints and
San Francisco, while the Baltimore Ravens
showed — except for a couple weeks — they
are past their prime.

News from around the majors

Orioles’ Simon arrested in
‘New Year’s shooting death |

Alfredo Simon, who posted 17 saves for the Baltimore Orioles
last season, is in his biggest jam yet.

Simon surrendered to police in the Dominican Republic on
Monday and faces an involuntary manslaughter charge after a



New Year’s Eve shooting that killed his cousin and wounded an-

other man in the northeast
coast town of Luperon.

Simon’s lawyer said he was
firing celebratory shots in the
air in the moments leading up
to the new year.

Simon was accompanied to
the police station by Julio Lugo,
his teammate with the Orioles
last season.

“He is scared because he rec-
ognizes that he fired shots, al-
though they went into the air,”
Lugo said. According to the As-
sociated Press, Lugo advised Si-
mon to surrender after he had
fled the scene.

Simon’s cousin, 25-year-old
Michel Castillo Almonte, was
struck in the chest, possibly by
the same bullet that injured his 17-year-old brother, Starlin, in
the right arm.

Police initially said they would charge Simon with murder,
but public prosecutor Victor Mueses told the AP that evidence
and witness accounts would likely dictate the involuntary man-
slaughter charge, which carries a sentence of up to two years in
prison.

Simon, 29, was 4-2 with a 4.93 ERA for the Orioles last sea-
son. Although manager Buck Showalter eventually went with
Koji Uehara as his closer, Simon was expected to factor in Balti-

* moere’s bullpen picture this spring.

Simon isn't the first promising ballplayer to encounter legal
trouble in the Dominican Republic.

Angel Villalona, a corner-infield prospect for the San Francisco
Giants, was accused of murder in a September 2009 shooting
outside a nightclub. He was released on bond, and the victim's
family asked for charges to be dropped after he paid them in ex-

‘cess of $138,000.

However, prosecutor Jose Antonio Polanco said although civil

charges had been dropped, he still intended to bring criminal
- charges against Villalona, who received $2.1 million to sign with

Baseball world lost many giants

The Dec. 28.death of former Detroit
Tigers executive Bill Lajoie closed the list
of those in the baseball world who we
lost in 2010.

For all of its magic, the year was
marked by too many moments of si-
lence and memorial patches as several

giants of the game passed away: Hall of

Famers, iconic voices, executives who
shaped their teams and the game.

Baseball Almanac names 91 former -
major league players who died in 2010;
Baseball-Reference.com includes a long-
er list with managers, executives and
media.

Three Hall of Famers passed in 2010:
Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Robin Rob-

erts, 83, the symbol of the famed Whiz

Kids pennant-winning team in 1950;
Cincinnati Reds and Tigers manager
Sparky Anderson, 76, the first to win a
World Series in both leagues and the
only one to lead two franchises in career
wins; and Cleveland Indians pitcher Bob
Feller, 92,.a World War II hero who was
the most dominant pitcher of his era.

New York Yankees owner George
Steinbrenner passed away the morning
of the All-Star Game at 80. -

“He was, and always will be, as much
of a New York Yankee as Babe Ruth, Lou
Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, —
Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford and all of the
other Yankee legends,” baseball Com-
missioner Bud Selig said.

Three other prominent members of |
the Yankee family passed: public address
announcer Bob Sheppard, 99; manager
Ralph Houk, 90; and infielder Gil
McDougald, 82.

The Chicago Cubs lost All-Star third
baseman and broadcaster Ron Santo, 70,
and the National League MVP from-1945
— the year of their last pennant — Phil
Cavarretta, 94. Santo was one of three
beloved voices of the game silenced last
year, with Hall of Famers Ernie Harwell,
92, who called Tigers games for 42 sea-
sons; and Dave Niehaus, 75, the Seattle
Mariners announcer since the birth of
the franchise in 1977.

“Someone will succeed them, but no
one will replace them,” said author Curt
Smith, a leading historian of baseball
broadcasts.

Bobby Thomson, the man responsible
for one of the all-time great radio calls —
(“The Giants win the pennant! The Gi-
ants win the pennant!”) — died at 86
about two months before the team won
its first World Series title in San Francis-
co. His home run for the New York Gi-
ants against the Brooklyn Dodgers in the
deciding game of the 1951 three-game
playoff for the NL title has been called
the “Shot Heard Round the World.”

Three more members of the Boys of
Summer, the legendary Brooklyn Dodg-
ers team of the 1950s, also died: pitch-

ers Billy Loes, 80; Ken Lehman, 82; and
Danny McDevitt, 78. McDevitt started
and finished the final game at Ebbets
Field. ©

Two sudden deaths of young men not
far removed from their playing days
shocked the baseball world: 1999 All-
Star pitcher Jose Lima, 37, died of cardi-

ac arrest, and former Houston Astros

pitcher Jeriome Robertson, 33, was
killed in a motorcycle crash.

Oakland Athletics

Beane’s recipe:
Just add bats

GM hopes Matsui, trades bring
offense up to par with pitching.

By Jorge L. Ortiz

OAKLAND — At a time when the small-
market Athletics are ready to spend money,
they've found players reluctant to take it.

Adrian Beltre was'not swayed by their five-
year, $64 million offer. Lance Berkman turned
down.their two-year, $16 million overture to
take half that much from the St. Louis Cardi-
nals. Japanese pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma, for
whom the A’s paid a $19.1 million posting fee,
did not accept Oakland’s four-year deal for
about $16 million and returned home (the
team got the posting fee back).

So Oakland executives were positively giddy .

when a better-known Japanese player, one
who could make a bigger impact, made it clear
he wanted to join their club, and for a relatively
paltry $4.25 million on a one-year contract.

New designated hitter Hideki Matsui, 36,
came into town with a robust eight-year résu-
mé in the majors, not to mention a large en-
tourage of Japanese reporters who chronicle
his every move, suddenly making Oakland a fo-
cal point in the Far East.

More significantly, he brings a still-potent, if
aging, bat to a lineup that finished second-to-
last in the American League last season in slug-
ging and home runs and 11th in runs scored.
Matsui’s 21 homers for the Los Angeles Angels
in 2010 were five more than anybody on the

-A’s hit} and his 84 RBI would have easily led his
new team as well.

“It was nice to have someone reciprocate the
same interest in playing here as we have in him
as a player,” general manager Billy Beane says.

“The last few years, drawing players here has
been tough, but I have to remind people, ‘Lis-
ten, talk to some of the guys who were here a
few years ago, and they'll tell you it’s still one
of the funnest places to.play when we're win-
ning.’ So, ultimately, we hope to get to that.”

The A's should have a legitimate chance to
contend for the AL West crown next season be-

plentiful — stacks up with any in the league.

the Washington Nationals.

They join forces with Coco Crisp and Ryan
Sweeney in a suddenly crowded outfield that
also includes Conor Jackson. Like Willingham,
Jackson bats from the right side, lending some
balance to a lineup that leans toward the left.

The projected first four batters in the order
— Crisp, first baseman Daric Barton, DeJesus
and Matsui — all swing from that side, al-
though Crisp is a switch-hitter who's typically

more effective right-handed.

Nofié among Matsui, Willingham or DeJesus —
qualifies as the big bopper the A’s would have
liked to add, but their addition might be — '
enough to support that gifted pitching staff.

“It's a deeper lineup,” Beane says. “There are
shortcomings, but I think our offense is better.”

Not quite picture perfect: The Athletics’ Daric Barton drove in 57 runs and had a .405 slugging
percentage last year, less-than-ideal power numbers for a first baseman.

Where the Athletics
stand at each position

Catcher

In the best of all worlds, Kurt Suzuki would
bat second or toward the bottom of the lineup,
where his occasional power — 28 home runs
over the last two seasons — would be a wel-
come boost. But Suzuki hit in the middle of the
order all of last-year and, with few hitters
around him toshare the load and a new con-
tract to justify, struggled te duplicate his num-
bers from the previous year, Suzuki is quick
and athletic behind the plate, though his per-
centage of runners caught stealing (22%) is be-
low average.

First base

After years of hype, Daric Barton established
himself as a major league first baseman. The
next step is to become a preductive one. Bar-
ton, 25, led the league with 110 walks, but he
drove in only 57 runs while playing in 159
games and had a slugging percentage of .405.
That won't cut it at first base.

Second base
Mark Ellis remains a rock defensively — he
committed three errors in 116 games — while

contributing offensively. Last season marked
the first time Ellis did not reach double figures
in home runs since 2003, but his .291 average
was the second-best mark of his career. Versa-
tile Adam Rosales serves as an energetic back-
up for Ellis and just about anyone else who
needs a day off.

Third base

Kevin Kouzmanoff used to have awful first
halves followed by torrid second halves. In
2010, he never got really hot, and this time he
fell off the map after the break, batting .216
with a.251 on-base percentage. It made for a
disappointing first season in Oakland, after he
had wildly inconsistent but more productive

- years with the San Diego Padres.

Shortstop ‘

Cliff Pennington, the Athletics’ first-round
pick in the 2005 draft, had moments of de-
fensive brilliance in a first full season marred
by his 25 errors. Pennington played in ail but
six games and might have worn down in the
season's final couple of months, wherrhe bat-
ted .235.

Left field

Josh Willingham has averaged a shade over
20 homers in his five full seasons, which for the
A's qualifies as a power boost. He’s also a pro-

fessional hitter who will work the count and
has a career on-base-plus-slugging percentage
of .841. Last year he was sidelined after Aug. 15
by a knee injury, which required surgery.

Center field

Coco Crisp was a nice offensive catalyst
when he played, stealing 32 bases and posting
a.779 OPS. But for the third consecutive sea-
son, he played in fewer than 120 games, this
time 75, because of injuries. It says something
about Crisp's defensive abilities that, on a team
with three center fielders, he’s the one chosen
for the position.

Right field,

‘David DeJesus was batting a career-high
.318 for the Kansas City Royals when he went’
down with a season-ending thumb injury

July 22, killing his trade value at the time. The
A's see him as an offensive and defensive up-
grade — he is a career .289 hitter capable of -
playing the three outfield positions — although
he won't provide the power of a typical corner
outfielder, Ryan Sweeney also figures in the
mix here and in center.

Designated hitter

Hideki Matsui’s 21 home runs last season
were five more than anybody on the A's hit, so
he’s a more-than welcome addition. Matsui is
36 and no longer the “Godzilla” of years past,
but he had a terrific second half (.309 average,
11 homers, .955 OPS in 60 games) after a slow
start with the Los Angeles Angels. =

Starters

was sidelined twice by forearm and elbow

and the fastball-curveball combination of Gio
Gonzalez. They went a combined 40-23 last

_season and, considering none is older than 25, .

only figure to improve. In addition, Dallas Bra-
den brings a third left-handed arm, leadership
and terrific pitching know-how. Candidates for
the fifth starting spot include Josh Outman,
who's coming back from Tommy John surgery.

Bullpen

, The A’s had the best bullpen ERA in the
league in 2009 at 3.54, and last year they post-
ed a 3.83 mark, good for sixth in the AL. Mi-
chael Wuertz’s return to health after an injury-
plagued year should help, because he'sthe ~
most likely candidate to pitch the eighth in-
ning, and Oakland added former phenom Rich
Harden for relief help. Craig Breslow and jerry
Blevins are available from the left side.

Closer

After winning the 2009 American League
rookie of the year award, Andrew Bailey hardly
skipped a beat, except for a rib-cage muscle
strain that cost him a month and an elbow is-
sue in September that required surgery. His
ERA was 1.47, and he converted 25 of 28 saves.

Prospect report
Position

players
ag behind

pitchers

Oakland has enjoyed recent success with
homegrown pitchers Trevor Cahill and Andrew
Bailey and also has bolstered its farm system
by trading the likes of Dan Haren and Nick
Swisher to obtain promising young starters
such.as Brett Anderson and Gio Gonzalez.

The development and acquisition of position
players haven't gone as well, as highly touted

outfielders Michael Taylor and Chris Carter
(who also plays first base) have yet to make an
impact in the majors.

Some of the club’s top prospects:

> SS Grant Green: Green’s fielding is far
from polished — his 37 errors led-the California
League by plenty — and at 6-3 and 180 pounds,
the 23-year-old might not remain at shortstop
for the long term. But that size and his power
potential — he had 20 home runs, 87 RBI anda
.520 slugging percentage with high-A Stockton
(Calif.) — make the 2009 first-round pick a
high-level prospect.

> OF Michael Choice: The 10th overall pick
in the 2010 draft has an explosive bat and the
ability to handle it for more than just home
runs. Choice, 21, displayed some of those skills
in his 30-game pro debut season but also
struck out 45 times in 109 at-bats, an indica-'
tion of how raw he is.

> OF Chris Carter: Carter, 24, might be due _

#5 More seasoning, considering he began his
“major league career with a 0-for-33 skid. He
banged out three homers in his next 37 at-bats
and had a big second half at Class AAA Sacra-
mento. Strikeouts, however, figure to dog him.
He fanned 156 times in 2008 at Stockton, 133
~ times in 2009 while splitting time between
Sacramento and Class AA Midland (Texas) and
159 times last season.
> 2B Jemile Weeks: He is not as powerfully
built as his brother Rickie but has been just as
bedeviled by injuries early in his career. The
“younger Weeks, 23, has been unable to play
more than 80 games in a season because of leg
and hip ailments. When healthy, the switch-
hitter has shown nice pop for his size and a dis-
cerning eye at the plate. He posted a .782 OPS
(on-base plus slugging percentage) between
Seeckton and Midland in 2009 but was limited
to 67 games at Midland in 2010.
>- RHP Tyson Ross: Ross, 23, was sharp
early on after surprisingly making the club as a
reliever, but his command issues eventually
caught up to him. With a fastball that can reach
the high 90s and a deceptive slider, he projects
as a starter, especially if he can tighten his un-
usual mechanics.

Potential power
team pulls fade

_GM makes move to get club
back in contention in 2011

By Jorge L. Ortiz

In 2007, the Arizona Diamondbacks won the
National League West with a youth-laden team ~
hailed as a likely power for years to come. They ©

finished last the past two seasons and are be-
ing restructured by new general manager Kev-
in Towers.

In 2008 and ’09, the Dodgers won the NL .
West with a youthful club that had the mak-
ings of a perennial playoff participant. Last sea-
son, Los Angeles failed to crack the .500 mark,
raising the question of whether it will follow
Arizona’s path.

GM Ned Colletti has taken several steps he
hopes will return the Dodgers to contention,
shoring up the pitching staff by bringing back
free agent starters Ted Lilly, Hiroki Kuroda and
Jon Garland and adding Matt Guerrier to the
bullpen. The Dodgers also signed power-hit-
ting infielder Juan Uribe.

None of those moves created big headlines
comparable to the signings of Cliff Lee by the
Philadelphia Phillies or Carl Crawford by the
Boston Red Sox, but Colletti thinks they were
significant steps in the right direction after an
80-82 season and a fourth-place finish.

“We needed to fill out a lot of different holes,
and while we haven't made that really big
splash, we've improved the club,” Colletti says.
“Uribe adds a lot to us, both with his postsea-
son experience and his upbeat (personality).”

Perhaps that will energize a club that

middle of the NL-pack with a 4.01 ERA, the of-
fense stumbled, scoring 113 fewer runs than in
2009. Los Angeles hitters connected for 120
home runs, the second-lowest total in the
league and a drop of 25 from the year before.



2006 2007 2008 2009 2010



By Kirby Lee, US Presswire

An off year: Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp was a 100-RBI man in 2009, but he came up short of
that standard in 2010, one factor in Los Angeles’ struggles during the season.

Part of the downturn could be attributed to
Manny Ramirez’s limited contribution in 66
games, but much of the blame goes to a core of
young veterans who did not improve and in
some cases regressed.

Outfielders Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier —
both 100-RBI men in 2009 — failed to live up
to their previous year’s standard. First baseman
James Loney essentially duplicated his 2009
season, although his slugging percentage
shrank for a fourth consecutive year. Mean-
while, catcher Russell Martin continued his
steady decline before a broken hip ended his
season in early August. He was let go after the
season and signed with the New York Yankees.

“If the key players don’t produce, you're go-
ing to struggle,” Colletti says. “The bright spot
for us is we have seen them do well. We're not
wondering if they can produce. We've seen it.
We've seen Gold Glove. We've seen Silver Slug-
ger. We've seen great things.”

Especially from Kemp, who followed his

breakout 2009 with a lackluster 2010, al-
though he still had 28 homers and 89 RBI. The
Dodgers think new first-base coach Davey
Lopes, one of the franchise’s mainstays in the
1970s, will serve as a positive influence on
Kemp. Lopes is tight with Kemp’s agent, for-
mer star pitcher Dave Stewart. ~

Although the team ownership remains un-
settled because of the ongoing legal dispute be-
tween Frank and Jamie McCourt, the Dodgers
have defied predictions by making free agent
investments this offseason, and they’ve said
the payroll would increase.

It will be up to rookie manager Don Matting-
ly to get his players to live up to their potential
after a season of underachievement in 2010.

“| think his rapport with everybody on the
club is very, very strong,” Colletti says of Mat-
tingly. “The way he played the game, which
was at a very high level, very disciplined, fo-
cused, | think the club will continue to take
that lead from him.”

oi .
Other side of rivalry: Juan Uribe, a hero in the Giants’ march to the World Series title in 2010,
has joined their chief rivals, the Dodgers, and will switch from shortstop to second base.

Around the horn

Rotation can turn heads ~

Where the Dodgers
stand at each position:

-Catcher

: Russell Martin’s departure prompted the

‘ Dodgers to re-sign Rod Barajas, a serviceable
catcher with a power stroke but low batting
average, and to add former Los Angeles farm-

. hand Dioner Navarro, a switch-hitter who was

_ non-tendered by the Tampa Bay Rays. Barajas
. is the putative starter, but they might split the
position. AJ. Ellis also figures into the mix.

First base

James Loney’s lack of power for the position
— 36 total home runs in the last three seasons,
12 of them at Dodger Stadium — drives his
critics bonkers. He hasn't cracked the .800 OPS
mark the last three years, and in the last two
his slugging percentage has been below .400.
Loney made $3.1 million and probably will get
a raise through arbitration in 2011. From that
position and with that inflation, the Dodgers
need more. ws

Second base

Free-swinging Juan Uribe, one of the sparks
in the San Francisco Giants’ unexpected run to
the World Series title, brings his loud bat and
lively clubhouse presence to Los Angeles.
Uribe’s chief defensive asset, a powerful arm, is
a bit lost at second base, but he can still pick
‘em, and his versatility isa huge plus.

Third base :

Casey Blake, 37, is entering the final season
of his contract and last year showed signs of
wearing down, batting .234 with a .298 OBP af-
ter the All-Star break. Blake has played multiple
positions and could move around to other
spots, especially first base, with Uribe spelling
him at third. With no top prospect waiting in
the wings, Uribe could spend the last two years
of his contract at the hot corner.

Shortstop

For the second time in three years, Rafael
Furcal played in fewer than 100 games. He was
productive offensively, but that only makes his
absences more notable. He's 33, and his field-
ing has slipped, as evidenced by his 19 errors
last year. Jamey Carroll and Uribe might get
starts here. :

Left field -

Jay Gibbons made a nice comeback last sea-

son after two years away from the majors, but

the only way he reminds Dodgers fans of Man-
ny Ramirez is in his fielding, and that’s not a
good thing. Los Angeles will look to platoon
him with a righty-hitting outfielder. Tony
Gwynn Jr. was non-tendered by the San Diego
Padres and snapped up by the Dodgers, but he
figures to merely back up all three positions.

Center field

Judged strictly by numbers, Matt Kemp had
a fairly productive 2010, with 28 homers and
89 RBI. In the context of his breakout 2009,

though, he was a major disappointment. Not
only did Kemp fail to improve, but he regressed
in nearly all areas of his game and seemed dis-
tracted. His formerly Gold Glove fielding was
ordinary, and the lack of focus on the base-
paths returned. He was caught stealing in 15 of
34 attempts. Kemp, who finished 10th in the
MVP race in 2009, is 26, and the Dodgers think
he’llbounce back. ~ ,

Right field
Andre Ethier seemed to have escaped the

malaise that afflicted his teammates, as he was
leading the majors with a .392 average in mid-.
May when he was sidelined for two weeks by a
broken pinkie. He was never the same, batting
.260 the rest of the season. Like Kemp, Ethier is
a year removed from a breakout season, but his
.233 batting average vs. left-handers in 2010 —
he’s at .247 for his career — is.'a concern.

- Starters

By bringing back Ted Lilly, Hiroki Kuroda and
Jon Garland — an ex-Dodger who pitched for
the Padres in 2010 — Los Angeles has put to-
gether a solid rotation capable of eating up in-
nings and taking pressure off the bullpen. The
key to the quintet's overall performance will be

~ the progress of Clayton Kershaw and Chad Bil-

lingsley, neither of whom is a true ace yet;.al-

though Kershaw, 22, seems to be maturing into
the role. The Dedgers re-signed Vicente Padilla,
Jast season's opening-day starter, who was lim-
ited to 16 games because of injury, He is initial-
ly slated for the bullpen — he has made two re-

lief appearances since 2002 — and adds depth
to the rotation as well. Garland, 31, has pitched
for five teams the last four seasons but has _.
been consistent and durable. He was 14-12
with a 3.47 ERA for the Padres last year.

Bullpen ee

With an abundance of closer options — Jona-
than Broxton, Hong-Chih Kuo, Kenley Jansen,
even Padilla — the Dodgers will also have sev-
eral candidates to bridge the gap from the
starter to the ninth inning. However, uncertain-
ty of roles sometimes leads to unrest. General
manager Ned Colletti says Padilla will be the
bullpen’s “wild card,” because the longtime
starter could fit into any role from middle re-
liever to closer, and he has the stuff to blow
away hitters in short stints. Adding Matt Guer-
rier — who signed a three-year, $12 million
deal — as a setup man will also help. Guerrier
led the American League in appearances in
2008 and 2009.

Closer - ;

Colletti says this will be Broxton’s job to lose
going into the spring. Broxton, 26, was a stud
in 2009 but faltered badly last season, when
his ERA soared from 2.61 to 4.04 and he lost
his confidence, as well as the closer role while
blowing seven save chances. Jansen overpow-.
ered hitters (41 strikeouts in 27 innings) ina
25-game audition, and left-hander Kuo (1.20
ERA, 12 saves) looked sharp as well.

USA TODAY SPORTS WEEKLY - JANUARY 5-1 1; 2011 - 37



Prospect report
Top pick,
pitcher Lee,

prime part
of hopes

There’s been a noticeably fallow period since
the emergence of players such as Matt Kemp
and Clayton Kershaw. Chris Withrow and Eth-
an Martin, the Dodgers’ two first-round picks
in the next two years after Kershaw (2006),
hac’ERAs of 5.97 and 6.35, respectively, last
season in the minors. Withrow spent his first
full season at Class AA Chattanooga (Tenn.),
while Martin was a 21-year-old pitching in the
high-A California League for Inland Empire (San
Bernardino).

Not all of the news was grim. The Dodgers
managed to sign top draft pick Zach Lee, who
was strongly expected to accept a football
scholarship to LSU. They lured Lee, a right-
handed starter, with a club-record $5.25 mil-
lion signing bonus. He’s considered very ad-
vanced for a highschool pitcher, though it fig-
ures to be a few years before he pays
big-league dividends.

Five of the Dodgers’ top prospects:

> SS Dee Gordon: Speed is his calling card,
as Gordon, 22, stole at least 50 bases for the
second year in a row, this time at Class AA. The
son of ex-big-league pitcher Tom “Flash” Gor-
don still needs to improve his fielding (37 er- .
rors, three more than the previous season) and
work on his ability to get on base.

> OF Trayvon Robinson: Speedy Robinson,
23, continued to improve his plate discipline
(.404 OBP at Class AA) while remaining a
threat to occasionally go deep. Now it’s a mat-
ter of finding out whether his performance will
carry over at a higher level. “Trayvon Robinson
and (Jerry) Sands have really come on-in the
last year,” general manager Ned Colletti says.
“They're not that far away.”

> RHP Rubby De La Rosa: The Dominican
native showed he’s ready for more as he
thrived (1.41 ERA in 51 innings) when moved
up from Class A to AA. De La Rosa, 21, still has
to improve his command, but now he’s done
enough to catch the brass’ attention.

> 1B-OF Jerry Sands: This former 25th-
round pick also has forced his way onto the
Dodgers’ radar by posting a .981 OPS last sea-
son, when he split time equally between:

Class A and AA. The 23-year-old’s 35 homers,
93 RBI and 18 stolen bases are hard to ignore.
> 2B-SS Ivan de Jesus Jr.: A broken leg that
sidelined him for most of the 2009 season de-
layed his progress, but the son of the former
major leaguer of the same name bounced back
strong by hitting .296 with 70 RBI at
Class AAA. De Jesus, 23, could wind up com-

peting for a middle-infield backup spot.

er in the hospital. He was
accompanied by several peo-

was wiping tears from her
eyes.

“I don’t know what hap-

son ‘is dead,” he said.

Firefighters were called toa -

BIC DEAL OPPONENTS IN TOP JOB FOR FOREIGNER CLAIMS

Tribune Staff Reporter

OPPONENTS of the Cable and Wireless
Communications (CWC) takeover of the
Bahamas Telecommunication Company
(BTC) are claiming an advertised senior posi-
tion in the company will be going to a for-
eigner, and not a Bahamian.

And they say this is an example of how
CWC will not be committed to using Bahami-
an talent.

However, a seniot cwc official refuted
the allegations and explained that the adver-

Congress of Trade Unions
has decided to commemorate
the historic general strike
which brought Nassau to its
knees for several weeks in
1958.

NCTU general secretary
Robert Farquharson
announced that a rally and

voter registration march will
be held on Monday begin-

Climate change a major threat to Bahamas, Say Greenpeace activists

By CELESTE NIXON
Tribune Staff Reporter

GREENPEACE activists, cur-
rently docked in Nassau on one of
the environmental group’s ships, say
climate change is a major threat to

. the Bahamas.

According to Joel Stewart, a 22-
year veteran of the organisation and
captain of Greenpeace’s “Arctic

Sunrise” icebreaker ship, climate

change is very serious issue for a
maritime state like the Bahamas.
The Arctic Sunrise, docked in the
harbour for maintenance and crew
changes, allowed The Tribune

aboard to discuss Greenpeace’s envi-

ronmental campaigns and the possi-
ble impact of global warming on the
Bahamas. -

Climate change, which is attrib--

uted to global warming, is an

increase in the average temperature —
of Earth's near-surface air and

oceans caused by increasing con-

centrations of greenhouse gases like
carbon dioxide (CO2), which scien-
tists and activists say results from
human activity such as the burning
of fossil fuels.

Specific effects of climate change

that could impact the Bahamas
‘include: rising sea levels; increase in

the intensity.and frequency of hur-
ricanes; coral bleaching; and acidifi-

‘ cation of the atmosphere and in turn,

the ocean. .
According to.Captain Stewart,
plankton absorb CO2 from the

~ atmosphere and release oxygen into

the water making it more acidic. The
acidic water dissolves the shells of
carbonic animals such as crabs, oys-
ters and more important to the
Bahamas, corals and reefs,

He said: “Climate change is a.

severe threat to global security — we
must find a new energy methods i in
order to reduce CO2 emissions”

It is important for the’ Bahamas
to phase out the use of fossil fuel
and invest in clean energy sources

such as salar and wind power, both
of which are abundant in the
Bahamas, said Cpt Stewart.
Increasing the volume of marine
reserves would also be a logical step
in the protection and conservation of
the Bahamian marine environment.
Regulating the reserves in par-
tially sensitive sea areas (PSSA),

which makes them off limits to large

fishing boats, cargo and cruise ships,
would decrease potentially damaging

human interaction with the fragile

marine life.
Recycling
Cpt Stewart went on to suggest

the creation of a recycling system.
He said: “Recycling is easy.and can

‘be mutually beneficial. It would be a
_ way to reduce the country’s carbon

footprint and is an easy way to save
money in the disposal of garbage
and waste”.

He emphasised the point that it is
not too late to reverse the effects of

climate sian: the key being a

proactive approach to the environ-
ment.

“There is a road map/plan that
will phase out the use of fossil fuels
and introduce clean alternative ener-
gy sources without destroying the:
economy; everyone just needs to get
on board” he said.

The main goal is to reduce atmos-
pheric CO2 to 350 parts per million.
The atmospheric CO2 is currently
387 parts per million, which com-
pared to the pre-industrial age’s 280
parts per million, is a huge increase.

Once atmospheric CO2 reaches a
certain level, the effects will be irre-
versible.

He said: “Just because the
Bahamas is a small country does not
mean it cannot make a difference
and have a global impact”.

Cpt Stewart explained that the
Bahamas may also be effected by
the Deepwater Horizon oil spill (also
known as the BP oil spill), as dis-
bursement agents were used on the

.

some 205.8 million pallons of crude
oil that was released into the ocean
over a three month period.

He said: “It will probably be 10
years before we can understand the
full environmental effects of that dis-
aster and the possibility of the cur-
rents pushing the oil into Caribbean
waters is very real.”

The Arctic Sunrise and its crew
were recently at a United Nations
Climate Change Conference in Can-
cun, Mexico liaising with other Non-
Governmental Organisations.

Prior to the Cancun conference,
the ship was in the Gulf of Mexico
assisting with scientific research on
the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the
largest accidental marine oil spill in
history. .

_ The ship is scheduled to leave
Nassau Harbour on ‘Tuesday, when
it will set sail for the United States
and begin 'a US tour campaigning
for the close of old coal-powered
power plants that are not up to cur-
rent EPA air emissions standards.

Polarised Congress as US seeks pragmatism

WASHINGTON (AP):— There's an inher-
ent conflict in the country's new political real-
ity: a much more polarized Congress must
answer to an increasingly powerful centre of
the electorate that abhors partisanship or risk
its wrath in 2012.

Much like President Bill Clinton after his
party's disastrous 1994 elections, President
Barack Obama now has the chance to shift to
the middle as leaders on Capitol Hill struggle to
strike a balance between the desires of ideo-
logical purists in their ranks and the indepen-
dent, centrist voters who played a significant
role in electing them.

-For Republicans and Democrats, that task
began Wednesday when the new Congress was
sworn in; Republicans assumed control of the
House and padded their numbers in the Demo-
cratic-led Senate. "There's going to be polli-
tics. That's what happens in Washington. They
are going to play to their base for a certain
period: of time. But I'm pretty. confident that
they're going to recognize that our job is to
govern. My hope is that John Boehner and
Mitch McConnell will realize that there will
be plenty of time to campaign for 2012 in 2012,"
President Obama said this week about GOP
leaders in the House and Senate, casting him-
self as the compromiser in chief even while
manoeuvring for his upcoming re-election.

The president's tone was in stark contrast to

his first two years when he leveraged large
Democratic majorities in Congress — and
thwarted Republicans — to enact sweeping
laws, including an economic stimulus measure
and revamps of the health care and financial
regulatory systems, that independents greet-
ed sceptically if not derisively. After backing
him heavily in his presidential bid, they pun-
ished him in November by ending one-party
rule in Washington. ‘

Now, with no serious Democratic primary
challenger- emerging to siphon support from
his liberal base, Obama already has begun
moving to the centre. As 2010 ended, he com-
promised with Republicans to reach biparti-
san deals on tax‘cuts that paved the way for a
rush of end of year legislation, including repeal-
ing the ban on gays openly serving in the mili-
tary as well as a new nuclear treaty with Russia.

It's clear the 2012 elections are in every-
one's sights with obvious objectives: Obama
needs to win back middle-of-the-road voters,
and Republicans need to keep them happy, or
at least not anger them.

. Their power was strongly felt in the last
three elections. If 2006 and 2008, indepen-
dents furious with Republican governance. gave
Democrats power in Congress and the White
House. By 2010, these, voters had grown disil-
lusioned by Democratic rule and sided with
the GOP. And their sway is only growing.

Today; more Americans are identifying
themselves as independent while majorities of
the country view both the Democratic and
Reputlican parties unfavourably. Disaffected
Republican and Democratic operatives are
forming groups to advocate on behalf of — if

not organize — unaffiliated voters, indicating
that momentum may be building among the
centre for increased political action.

So, given all that, how did the Republican
and Democratic caucuses in Congress end up
so much more conservative and liberal?

The two-party American political system
produces polarization in Congress. Both the

Republican and the Democratic parties hold '

primaries to choose general election candi-
dates. Those nominating contests are domi-
nated by the most vocal, active party mem-
‘bers — conservatives and liberals who tend to
support like-minded people.

Last year, that situation was even more pro-

nounced as the tea party coalition roiled GOP. |

primaries and produced Republican nominees

who were far more conservative than usual.
Now, the House Republican roster includes

some seven dozen tea party-backed lawmakers

and other staunch conservatives. And moder- -

ate "Blue Dog" Democrats are virtually extinct;
‘scores lost their swing-voting districts.in a coast-
to-coast GOP wave. "It's a. more polarized
House representing an electorate that is really
seeking moderation," said Matt Bennett, a for-
mer Clinton aide and a vice president of the
ceritrist Demociatic group Third. Way.

The Senate is arguably less polarized than
the House; Democrats succeeded in limiting the
number of GOP takeaways to six.

From the outset, it's clear that Boehner is
trying to strike a balance between his con-
stituents and his members. »

Still, in a nod to his caucus' right flank, he

scheduled a vote next week on repealing the |

health care law. Republicans don't expect.to
kill it. It makes sense for them not to; the GOP
wants to run against health care-in 2012 and
that important constituency — independents —
prefer that the law be changed, not repealed.
House leaders facing demands from the right to
immediately cut spending also indicated they

wanted to;cut»$100«billion from*the federal:

budget. But it didn't take long before GOP
leaders bowed to the reality. of governing and
scaled back their goal. Come February, during
debate over a massive spending bill to keep

the government running, the country will see |

how successful Boehner has been at keeping
the right in line and how much Qbama is will-

. ing to compromise. The challenge for Boehner

is to avoid what happened after the 1994
Republican Revolution when the GOP took
control of Congress.

Back then, House Speaker Newt Gingrich
failed to keep his rabble-rousing conservative
warriors in line, leading to a government shut-
down. Clinton came out on top, and handily

_ won re-election in 1996: Obama already has sig-

naled a desire to go the route of Clinton, sig-
naling a willingness to work with Republicans
on several issues. On Day 1 of the new. Con-
gress, the fight for middle-of-the-road voters
was well under way. It won't end until Novem-
ber 2012.

can’t we operate a few sets of
Traffic Lights is beyond me?
Roads — well the Chinese
funded road.from LPIA to
Oakes Field finds that we

can’t find a Bahamian quali-

fied contractor for the pro-
ject, but Baha Mar issued a
$40 million road works con-
tract for the roads on Cable
Beach and over the hill to
Gladstone-Inner Field: Road.
We, government is borrow-
ing the money from the Chi-
nese it is no gift so why did
we accept the loan condition
the Chinese must build? Isn’t
this illegal? Road dumps
....One road next to the Coli-
na Financial Centre off West
Bay has about 8-10 road
dumps in less than a quarter
of a mile...over-kill or total
stupidity ?

Anyway crime and more
crime and no court system
that works and some even a
past Assistant Commissioner
of police doesn’t understand
the Constitutional’position on
the Privy Council and the
obvious — law is law. whoever
the judge may be.

Kudos certainly to the Doc-
tors in Emergency at Doctors

amas

and PMH - to the Commis-
sioner of Police for doing
their utmost best — sad so
many still have not a clue how
to resolve a lot of our trou-
bles — the majority sit in a
building on the corner of Bay

_and Parliament who are

unable to make a speech with-
out a speech writer having
written the text.

When national politicians
don’t see when it is time to
remove themselves from pub-
lic office — the people en
masse are dying for at least
two political personalities to
take their final bow and move

on, but, oh Lord, dem are so

stubborn.

Freedom of Information —
if there is one single item of
legislation that is required it is
this — in the upcoming Gen-
eral Election which will be in
2011 we further need to vote
on a Constitutional Amend-
ment which will install the
power of the voter to remove
his/her MP with a vote of 50 +
1 per cent of the number of
voters who voted at the elec-
tion. The budget should be
required by law to be a bal-
anced budget so as to finally
stop deficits and wild bor-
rowings.

There is a further major
issue: We have no alternative ©
but to reduce the cost of living
— doing business and the so-
called services we offer:

Will 2011 bring an
improved Bahamas? Yes it

«will. I doubt the murder will’

drop too much; but it will be a
better year. Long term
beyond 2011 a slow improve-
ment, but only if costs. of
doing business are reduced.

bour Island elected council.
Dear Sirs,
Are you all really going to
stand by and watch Harbour
Island be ruined by constant

power outages and now ram- ,

pant crime?

Is it possible that none of
you really care about this (what
used to be the jewel in the

crown) island and are more.

interested in your own agen-
da's than in the health and wel-
fare of the Bahamian people

_and foreigners who live here?
Ihave lived here for 11 years ~

now and have seen this island
through two governments go
down hill. .With all of the
growth and foreign investment
that has gone on here in those
11 years we should not be suf-
fering with electricity going off
four and five times an hour.
We should not have to put
up with the-few electrical appli-

|}. ances that some can barely
- afford being burned up.

We should not have to put
up with a less than efficient
police force and an even worse
chief inspector.

We should not have to put
up with the dreadful local court
system with a magistrate that
allows repeated postponements

of trials and gives bail t:: repeat
offenders of robberies.

I am beyond sick of being
ignored like an outside child.
The only time we see any of
our elected officials, including
the Prime Minister and MP
Alvin Smith is during regatta
or near election time when they
decide to show up and parade .
around shaking the hands of
the poor people who seem so
glad to have a bone thrown to
them.

Mr. Prime Minister I was
recently in Nassau and have
never seen it look so good. Is
there some reason this island
with a large tax base can't be as
well taken care of?

Do all of you plan to contin-
ue ignoring us until the next
election when.you might need
our votes?

In the meantime watch the
foreign investment and foreign
home owners slip away.

IT CAN HAPPEN, HERE.

This is signed by an extreme-
ly disgusted resident and home-

Questions about Junkanoo

EDITOR, The Tribune.

Has Junkanoo become “a tale of two rivals,” namely, the Val-
ley Boys and the Saxon Superstars?

Are the Valley Boys and the Saxons really “head and shoul-
ders” above the rest or do we have serious discrepancies with-

7 in our judging system?

Have we completely exhausted over 500 years of a nation’s
history and culture or has Junkanoo been secretly “for-

eignized?”

By its constant presentation of alien themes is Junkanoo in
danger of losing its place as the nation’s premier cultural fes-

tival?

How did the Boxing Day Junkanoo Parade themes promote
or enhance Bahamian history or culture?
Did the judges rob One Family and/or the Valley Boys in

favour of the Saxons?

BisHopP SIMEON HALL TAKES AIM AT POLITICIANS FROM BOTH MAIN PARTIES

‘Time to lift Majority Rule
Day to proper national level’





OUTSPOKEN Bishop Simeon Hall
has, chastised politicians for prevent-
ing Majority Rule Day from living up
to its true meaning and importance.

‘In a statement issued yesterday, the
former Christian Council president
lamented the fact that the concept of
Majority Rule has not been allowed
to “rise above” its association with the
PLP — the party which led in its
achievement.

He added: “It is equally unfortunate
that the governing Free National
Movement continues to ignore or fails
to recognise the factuality and efficacy
of this defining historical event in
Bahamian History.”

Bishop Hall emphasised that Major-
ity Rule helped all Bahamians.

“The black masses and the white

minority were all freed from the awk-"

ward inequities of our ruthless, ungod-
ly, evil, colonial past, ” he said.
“While there is still more land to be
possessed we have come a long way.
“Regardless of the transient. political

labels we presently wear, we ought to

all recognise that January 10, 1967 was

indeed the defining moment in our life-
time, politically, socially and econom-
ically. It is time to lift this day to its
proper national level.”

Bishop Hall acknowledged that for-
mer prime minister Sir Lynden Pin-
dling is to be.credited and celebrated
for doing “far more for the psycholog-
ical ‘liberation of Bahamians.. . than
any other politician: — past and pre-
sent.”

Hurdle

In fact, he said, political parties con-
tinue to be “the major hurdle to bring-
ing about a spirit of One Bahamas”.

Meanwhile, the opposition PLP’s
Grand Bahama branch announced that
it will once again commemorate Major-
ity Rule Day-with a series of events
on that island.

These will begin on Stiriday, Janu-



ary 9, with a prayer breakfast to be
held at the Our Lucaya Resort at
7.30am. Party official Carolyn
Kinglocke said: “Majority Rule is the
singular event in Bahamian history that
played a significant role in shaping the
modern Bahamas we experience today.

“The significant events: leading up
and emanating from Majority Rule
must become permanently etched in
the Bahamian historical landscape as
these events define us as a people,
reveal what we believe in as Bahami-
ans, and serve as a constant reminder
to us of our vision and values.”

Mrs Kinglocke said that the history
of Majority Rule and what it means
for Bahamians today will be among
the topics discussed on Sunday.

On Monday, January 10 in Nassau,
the‘Bain and Grants Town Advance-
ment Association will host a Majority
Rule Day Service at St John’s Native
Baptist Church on Meeting Street,

. beginning at 7.30pm.

BEC team to investigate and repair power outages in Harbour Island, North Eleuthera

A BEC team from New
Providence has been sent to
Eleuthera to get to the bot-
tom of and repair the causes
for the power outages which
have been plaguing Harbour
Island and North Eleuthera.

The Corporation said it is
currently conducting an
island-wide review of its dis-

tribution and generation sys-.

tems to correct the causes of a
series of power outages which
occurred between Saturday,
January 1, and Friday, Janu-
ary 7.

A team from New Provi-
dence is currently in

Eleuthera troubleshooting the °

systems along with the on-
island team, BEC said.
Over the Christmas and

New Year’s holidays, business
owners and residents of Har-
bour Island said they were
plagued by frequent power
outages due to problems at
the BEC’s North Eleuthera

_ plant.

Although most hotel prop-
erties on the island used their
back-up generators and there-
by were able to prevent a loss
of business, power outages
have been a nuisance to resi-
dents for many years now.

Having explored the causes
for last week’s outages, BEC
reported that on Saturday,
January 1, a circuit breaker
tripped around noon, causing
an island-wide power outage
that also affected Harbour
Island. BEC’s on-island team

BA
BUSINESS
OUTLOOK

19 92

corrected the problem and
electricity was fully restored
by 4.30pm. Between Monday,
January 3 and Friday, January
7 there were a series.of gen-
erator trips at the Hatchet
Bay power station and the
Harbour Island power station.

This resulted in numerous
outages, mostly affecting res-
idents and businesses in North
Eleuthera and Harbour
Island, BEC said.

Feeder

Distribution problems were
exacerbated by the failure of
the north feeder breaker at
Hatchet Bay.

With this feeder inopera-
ble, most of the island



depended solely on the south
feeder at Hatchet Bay and
when challenges on this par-
ticular feeder occurred, wide-
spread outages were the
result. BEC said it intends to
repair the north feeder break-
er within the next two weeks.
_ As it concerns the island-
wide outage on Boxing Day,
BEC said a catastrophic mal-
function of one of four new
generators was to blame.
“As the Hatchet Bay Pow-

er Station is still going through _

its reliability testing phase, the
manufacturers of the genera-
tors are already on-site and
should be responsible for the
failed generator’s subsequent
repair or replacement.

“The failure of this particu-

2.0.4 4

lar generator is unrelated to”

any of the sporadic outages

- experienced since January 1.

Similarly, the failed genera-
tor has not hampered the gen-
eration of adequate electrici-
ty to the North Eleuthera and
Harbour Island areas,” BEC
saidinastatement. — .

BEC said they would like
to ensure. its customers in
Eleuthera that they are work-
ing quickly to resolve the
issues. “The corporation is

requesting the patience of

Eleuthera residents, especial-
ly those in North Eleuthera
and Harbour: Island, as it
takes corrective measures to
return a continuous electrici-
ty supply to its Eleuthera cus-:
tomers.”

encing Allan Lennox Boyd,
then Secretary of State for the
Colonies, to order the first
constitutional steps toward
Majority Rule for the
Bahamas.

While the NCTU’s state-
ment made no mention of the
government’s current plan to
sell BTC to Cable and Wire-
less, several union leaders
have threatened to protest the
deal by orchestrating a strike
rivaling the 1958 upheaval.

This week, State Finance
Minister Zhivargo Laing hit
back at these union bosses,
saying their threats display
their “arroganet



extent of a threat of national
strike, to the extent of going
down to Bay Street. They say,
'I know better than the whole
country, I know better than
' the prime minister and the

government, we Know what
is good and right'.”

He also noted that the
unions are. decrying the deal
but declined to meet with
David Shaw, CEO of the pur-
chaser Cable and Wireless,
for discussions late last year.

As for BTC's privatisation,

Mr Laing reasoned that the
sale is crucial in order for

BTC to compete in a com-
pletely open telecommunica-
tions sector. -

"In terms of BTC, privati-
sation of telecommunications
is fundamental to pushing ‘us
toward, realising our poten-

-tial. This is what we have to
‘get, the big gain to the





Bahamian population,"

Bahamian people is in a lib-
eral telecommunications sec-
tor. Liberal meaning no law of
the Bahamas bars a Bahami-

an from providing a telecom-

ni cations: service to the
said
Mr Laing.

"When we liberalise it, you
and others get to compete to
serve the Bahamian public.
That competition makes you
better off, that liberalising

also provides the economy
with more products and ser-
vices at levels that allows the

enterprises in it to compete.

better and make the econo-

_my of the Bahamas more

competitive."

BTC's markets will become
fully liberalised after the expi-
ration of its cellular monopoly
three years from the date-of
privatisation.

According to Mr Laing, if
the industry were to be com-

pletely liberalised today,

BTC's assets would plummet.

"We have an asset called
BTC, if I liberalise the sector
today that asset will be deci-
mated in BTC's current situ-
ation. There is no question
about that, even BTC's own
internal research tells them —
forget privatisation, in a lib-

eralised environment you will. ....
have to instantly reduce your -

staffing by the order of 25:to

30 per.cent in order to be able

to compete. So that is why pri-
vatisation has to be pursued
before (liberalisation)," he
said.

any proper representation for
the people of Elizabeth.

“Tf he is unwilling or unpre-
pared to do that task, I would
imagine that the people of Eliz-
abeth will put him aside. It is
my goal that he will set a record
for the shortest tenure in the
House of Assembly,” Dr Sands
said yesterday.

In response to Dr Sands, Mr
Pinder told The Tribune yes-
terday he has been representing
the people of Elizabeth fully
and has provided a number of
opportunities for them in his
short time in office.

“T ‘have defeated Dr Sands
in the by-election when all the
odds were against me, and I will
certainly defeat him again when
the general election is called, ”
he said.

Having lost the by-election
by a razor-thin margin of only
three votes, Dr Sands said he
has taken full responsibility for
the loss. However, he assured
the public he has learned from
this exercise and is working tire-
lessly to counteract any of the
perceived or learned challenges
that they had.

“Ultimately, I think the mes-
sage I have gotten from many
people is that they want to
know you care, that you are
concerned, and that you will do
what you can do to intercede
on their behalf. So I have been
doing that.



“I can
tell you that

ken to at
least five or

an effort to
help thent access the job mar-
ket. I had the good fortune of
being able to congratulate a
young lady who was able to
secure a job, and I think that is
what itis all about. It’s effort
directed at people,” he.said.
Currently, Mr Pinder is per-
ceived by many within the PLP
as having the largest new-found
public appeal in the party, and

as such, has shot up through .

the ranks of the organisation.
He can often be seen at vari-
ous social or political events
with the “top brass” of the par-
ty in tow.

Noting this manoeuvre, Dr
Sands said he thought that pol-
itics in the Bahamas had moved
beyond this type of showman-
ship.

_ “There is probably a bit of a_

role for that, but what is your
primary function? Your prima-
ry function is representation of
the people that put you in the
House of Assembly. If you lose
sight of that prize, the people
will remind you in very short
order that you have taken your
eye off the ball.:

“I certainly believe he has
taken his eye off:the ball. And

a crowd, some of whom became involved. It is unclear how
many detainees took part in the incident, but police were said to
have a Cuban man and two Haitians in custody last night.

Guards fired a number of warning shots in the air before fir-
ing rubber bullets at those thought to be the main offenders.

A Haitian man was hit in the back, the senior officer said,
and a Cuban man “in the buttocks.”

The only damage caused by the fight was to a pipe running to
the main water heater, which staff were said to be repairing last

night.

while that has provided me with
a strategic advantage I am dis-
appointed, because the people
in Elizabeth were really count-
ing on a different kind of poli-
tics, a different kind of repre-

sentation, and I think they have —

been short changed once
again, ” he said. ;

To his criticisms of “show-
manship” Mr Pinder said politi-
cians today must realise that
not every voter will visit an
MP’s office and as such they
should venture out to the peo-
ple to meet and greet them
wherever they may be.

The salary quoted in the

; some members of the public.

“For that kind of salary, I

: don’t think the top three peo-
: ple at BTC would earn a

The executive job search

firm circulating the advertise-

“acquired” BTC.

In several instances, the job
description references a
“leading telecommunications
organisation in the
Caribbean” and its “newly
acquired organisation.”

While it does not name
CWC and BTC specifically,
Bradley Roberts, Progressive
Liberal Party chairman, said:
“Tt is very clear what the ad is
for; it clearly says the location
is the Bahamas. Even a blind
man would see (they are talk-

“The head hunting compa-

ny (Archer Wtathigeon) is an
accredited agency and they
are operating at the request
of the company who engaged

.them to do the search,” he

said.

There have been no inter-.
views for the job so far, as
CWC is not in receipt of any
applications, said Mr John-
ston.

One political commentator
insisted: “If you were adver-
tising for a Bahamian, you
would advertise in the local
newspaper.

Grand Bahama schools may pull S'U®8s

‘out of BAAA upcoming events



P § there some type of con-
‘spiracy brewing between
New Providence and Grand
Bahama?

Two major sporting bodies are
reportedly ; going to be affected by the
absence of teams from Grand Bahama
as they. express their disappointment in
the manner‘in which they have been
treated.

The Grand Bahama schools have
reportedly decided that they won’t come
to town to participate in any Bahamas
Association, of Athletic Associations’
school'events, namely the National High
School Track and Field Championships
that is scheduled for March.

‘. The reason being: The schools col-
lectively are voicing their disapproval in
the BAAA’s:suspending two of their
coachés for what they called an infrac-
tion of the rules at the Penn Relays last
year in Philadelphia.

:“sBut before that, the schools have also
_ voiced their grievances in the'manner in
which. they have been treated at the
prestigious Hugh Campbell Basketball
Classic and have jointly indicated that
they. won't be ‘coming here in Febru-





ary.

“ Nobody, thelading the organisers and
the fans; who pay their money, want to
come out:to an-event and not get to see
the best athletes in action from through-
out the country.

‘There should be no argument, but
anytime in t any, event that you don’t




have the participation of Grand
Bahama, it takes away from the luster of
the competition.

In the case of the Hugh Campbell
organizers at the AF Adderley Junior
High School, they will have to find a
way to ensure that there is some partic-
ipation from Grand Bahama in oe tour-
nament.

The invitational tournament, which,
serves as a fundraiser for AF ‘Adder-
ley Jr. High, does‘not attract all of.the
top private schools in New Providence
and to have the Grand Bahama pull
out will definitely diminish the level of
competition.

For years, the schools from Grand
Bahama have complained about the
make up of the pools and the fact that
they don’t receive enough compensation
from the organisers.

The schools, however, have to realise
that.the tournament is an invitational
one and the organisers have the right to
provide remuneration to the partici-
pants if they so desire.

Hopefully, some compromise can be
worked out between the parties con-
cerned so that the tournament continues
to be a success and a delight for the
fans to enjoy.

- As for the dilemma between the ‘

‘BAAA and the Grand Bahama schools,

it’s a pity that the latter is taking the
stance to boycott any team events
because of the coaches’ suspension.
The BAAA may not be as adversely
affected like the Hugh Campbell

because there is sufficient talent on dis-
play from the participating schools in
New Providence.

But for the continued growth and
development of any sport, you want to
see the best talent on display at all times.
The BAAA’s Nationals is no excep-
tion.

Let’s hope that whatever: the differ-
ences between the parties concerned in
New Providence and those in Grand
Bahama, a meeting of the minds will
take place with the view of resolving
them.

In the case of both the Hugh Camp-
bell and the National High School
Championships, it’s the athletes who in
the long run will suffer because they
won't get the opportunity to display
their skills against the best that the
country has to offer.

Addition to all of that, the Govern-
ment Secondary Schools Sports Asso-
ciation have indicated that they intend
to indefinitely suspend its sports pro-
gramme if their coaches are not paid
for their after-school services.

That would certainly be a shame
because the move could have a trickling
effect on events like Hugh Campbell
and the BAAA’s Nationals in the long
run.

It’s only one week gone so far in the
new year, yet there are so many prob-
lems brewing that one only have to
wonder if there are any alternative
motions in the works.

We will wait and see.

wanted the Bahamas Gov-
ernment to do for them.

He noted that they asked
to pay,a Courtesy Call on
Governor General, Sir
Arthur Fawkes, they wanted
the team’s photo mounted on
the Wall of Fame at the Lyn-
den Pindling International
Airport and they wanted
Yamacraw Beach Way
renamed Freedom Farm
Highway or Freedom Farm
Road.

Maynard said while Free-
dom Farm was given the
opportunity to take advan-
tage of the initial request,
they’re still working on ful-
filling the other two.

“The celebrations contin-

e,” Maynard stressed. “I

_ don’t think the celebrations

should just be a:one day
affair. I think it should be an
on going event.

“This type of event, in
terms of the accomplishment,
is something that is going to
inspire generations of young
people behind them, so we
have to continue’ to hold
them up high.”

Before the unveiling of the
van, Cash Sr. presented Bur-
rows Sr. with a cheque to
assist with the further devel-
opment of the programme at
Freedom Farm.

Lowe’s Wholesale, accord-
ing to Burrows Sr., was the
initial sponsor of the pro-.
gramme when he got it start-
ed and he’s delighted that
even now as they are attain-
ing international success, the
company is still supporting
them.

“The best ways of trying to’ .
keep these young people from
going astray is through sports .
and so’"we want to continue
to do our part to help in their
development,” Cash Sr. said.

Burrows Sr., calling Lowe’s
Wholesale the mother of
Freedom Farm (in terms of
their sponsorship), said when
there was nobody else to turn
too, they came.to his, rescue.

“Every time Mr Cash see
us, he helps us out. So we’re
hoping that his son, William
Jr., will try it going because
‘they understand the youth
idevelopment and they have’
‘been doing that for years.”

Looking at the final prod-
uct on the van, Burrows Sr.
said it’s the first time that he’s
seen a local company cele-
brated a team’s feat and they
are now Lowe’s Wholesale is
a part of history, just as Free-
dom Farm.

Cash Jr said they watched
Burrows Sr’s persistence in.
developing Freedom Farm
and that was one of the main
reasons why they:continue to
support the programme and
putting the team in the fore-
front.

Burrows Jr. said they are
thankful that people are still

a showing their appreciation to

the team because “they
deserve it and I hope they
continue to relish the
moment as days go by.”

Like everybody present,
including workers at Lowe’s,
parents and family members
of the players, along with
baseball players, Burrows Jr
and Cox expressed their
delight in the way the van was
displayed.

“It’s very positive. It was
wonderful to see corporate
Bahamas get involved the
way they did,” he said. “I
think this. will contribute to
the future generation fulfill-
ing their dreams.”

Freedom Farm have vowed
that all of the accolades they
have received so far will only
inspire them to continue to
press on to achieve bigger
and better things in the
future.

ire Evans helps Kings rout gels |

Sacramento Kings’ Francisco Garcia, left, and Jason Thompson during the first
halt of an NBA basket gamne in Sacramento, Calif., UISG ad dan. 6; 2011. (AP)

SACRAMENTO, Calif.
Associated Press

TYREKE Evans has found his
game.

The NBA rookie of the year last
season, the Sacramento guard had 27
points and a season- high 12 assists to

help the Kings rout the Denver’

Nugeets 122-102 on Thursday night.
' Evans has struggled for much of
the season with foot problems and
admitted last month that some family
issues were a factor as well. Against
the. Nuggets, he played effectively

throughout, a flashback to his rookie °

season when he was difficult to stop
_ ona nightly basis.

Evans frequently penetrated the

soft Denver defense on drives and
made 11 of 18 shots, hit all five free
throws and added five rebounds.

"It was one of my best games. I
came out and was aggressive," Evans
said. "I was attacking and definitely
had them on their heels."

- It was second consecutive game
where Evans demonstrated his unique
ability to get the basket and finish in
traffic. He had 29 points and eight
assists Tuesday night in a loss to
Atlanta.

"Tyreke looked like he had his
quickness back for the second game in

a row," Kings coach Paul Westphal:

said. "He's making a conscious effort
to move the ball and himself quicker.
It shows in the quality of shots the
team is getting."

The Kings had a 23-2 run midway

through the second half to build a 21- .

point lead in their highest-scoring
game of the season. They shot 56 per-

cent and gave Westphal his 300th~

career victory.

The Kings (8-25) beat a team with a
winning record for the first time this
season and left Cleveland (8-27) with
the NBA's worst record.

"We don't believe we're a bad team
even if we have a bad record," West-

phal said. "We played with energy -

and poise for 48 minutes tonight."

DeMarcus Cousins scored 20
points, Beno. Udrih had.17, Carl
Landry 14 and Omri Casspi 13 for the
Kings.

Carmelo Anthony had 26 points for.

Brackett fined
$35,000 by NFL

NEW YORK
Associated Press

THE NFL fined Indianapo-

lis Colts linebacker. Gary
Brackett $35,000 Friday for his
hit on Tennessee Titans long

snapper Ken Amato in last

Sunday's game..

Brackett was called for an E

illegal blindside block on

Amato as the linebacker ran. |

toward thé Colts' goal line and
hit the long snapper from the
side in springing Antoine

Bethea for a return off a

missed field goal. Titans coach
Jeff Fisher called the hit
"vicious" and said it cracked
Amato's helmet.

Brackett has now been fined

’ three times this season for ille-

gal hits.

The Colts practiced Friday,
but there was no media avail-
ability...

defended ‘the play, saying, "I
don't think it was malicious at

all. I think it was just a football °

play, and I still think I hit him
with my shoulder first and the
head was secondary." '

The NFL announced sever-
al other fines Friday:

— Baltimore linebacker
Terrell Suggs was fined
$15,000 for striking Bengals
wide receiver Jerome Simp-
son in the face after a play.

_ — New England nose tack-
le Vince Wilfork was fined
$10,000 for roughing the pass-

— Oakland defensive line-
man John Henderson was

fined $7,500 for roughing
Kansas City's. Matt, Cassel: by
slamming him to the ground.

As for Brackett's hit, the
competition committee
approved the blocking rule in
March 2009, partially as a
result of a hit Steelers receiver

-Hines Ward made against
Bengals linebacker Keith
Rivers. Rivers broke his jaw
on the play. It is considered
illegal if the blocker hits anoth-
er player in the head or neck
area with the helmet, forearm
or shoulder.

Monday night, Colts vice pres- .

ident and general manager
Chris Polian said he believed it
was ihe first time the penalty
had been called. He did not
argue the call.

Clearly, Fisher, who serves |

‘on the competition commit-
tee, thought officials got it
right.

"It was probably one of the
most vicious hits that I've ever

seen, and then to come in .

Earlier. this week, Brackett... a

15 points and nine assists and the Thunder took |

advantage of the absence of Mavericks scoring
leader Dirk Nowitzki for a 99-95 victory Thursday
night.

Nowitzki is day-to-day and there had been spec-
ulation that he might try-to play against the Thun-
der. The nine-time All-Star, averaging 24.1 points,
has been shooting at practices. Dallas also is miss-
ing No. 3 scorer Caron Butler, out for the season
after tearing a tendon in his right knee:

Jeff Green had 16 points and nine rebounds,
and Serge.Ibaka added 13 points.and eight

. rebounds to help the Thunder avoid their first

three-game losing streak of the season. |

"When you lose two games in a row, it kind of
snowballs and you don't want that to happen,"
Durant said. "And this team (the Mavs) is good at
home, and they didn't have Dirk, their best player,
or Caron, but.they're a fast team and players

stepped up. So. you had to be locked. in fromthe

SNawenty

beginning : and not take this team for sranted, and
I think We did a good job of that." ~

Shawn Marion had a season-high 25 points for
the Mavericks, who were without Nowitzki for a

‘career-high sixth straight game with a sprained

right knee.

Tyson Chandler added 14 points and matched a
season high with 18:rebounds. Jason Terry had 19
points for Dallas, 2-4 during Nowitzki's absence.

"We definitely miss him," Chandler said about

Nowitzki. "Not only down the stretch, but he

changes the entire game. When he's in the game, he
stretches the floor. Guys aren't as willing to help off
of him, he's a big body. He plays great team
defense."

The Mavericks scored only 40 second-half points,
and Dallas' defense:had trouble stopping Okla-
homa City's inside game in the final minutes. The

_ Thunder held a 16-6 fourth-quarter paar in points

in the paint.

"We struggled defensively in the second half,
we struggled on the boards, and (the Thunder' s)
second-chance points were our undoing down the
stretch," Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said.

The Mavericks won the first two matchups

_ between the teams this season, both in Oklahoma

' SEATTLE

ASSOCIATED PRESS

A YEAR ago, the New Orleans
Saints rode the raucous enthusiasm of
the Superdome through the NFC play-
offs to the first Super Bowl title a fran-
chise history.

Hope they waved goodbye to the
Superdome on their way out of town
earlier this week. There's a good chance
if these Saints are going to get all the
way back to the league's title game,
they'll be asked to do it on the road.

‘The first stop on their postseason
road trip, begins Saturday in Seattle,
against the Seahawks in the first round
of the NFC playoffs.

It doesn't quite seem right the

’ defending champs and an 11-win team

this season would be asked to travel
2,000 miles on a short week to face the

first division champs in league history »

with a losing record — and a team the
Saints beat 34-19 in Week 11.

"We all have a formula for getting in.
We all know ahead of time. No one
was upset about it or complaining
about it before the start of the season,"
Saints coach Sean Payton said. "I think
that value of winning your division
means something. Just as a season ago
when the postseason began, the teams
that are in now really are 0-0. That's
just the truth. I think our players under-
stand that more than anything."

But the task in front of the Saints

as the No. 5 seed in the NFC became

seemingly more difficult as the week °

progressed.

There's the second consecutive short
week having played at Atlanta on Dec.
27, losing at home to Tampa Bay last
Sunday and taking off Thursday after
practice to make the five-hour flight

.to Seattle. There's the Pacific North-

west weather, where rain and even a
chance’ of some light snow are being
forecast for Saturday.

There's the Saints history, which tells
the story of a franchise that has never

won, let alone played well, away from -
the Superdome in the playoffs. New ,

Orleans lost 16-6 at Chicago in 1991;
34-16 at Minnesota in 2001; and 39-14
at Chicago in the NFC championship
game four years ago.

Then there's the injuries. Already
this week, the Saints placed. their top
two running backs — Chris Ivory and
Pierre Thomas — on injured reserve.
Only Reggie Bush and Julius Jones
remain as the Saints healthy running
backs from the regular season.

The injury concerns stretch beyond
the backs. Marques Colston, who had
eight catches for 113 yards and two
touchdowns in the first meeting against
Seattle, is listed as probable, but under-
went knee surgery less than two weeks
ago. Safety Malcolm Jenkins is out,
thinning a secondary that allowed 366
yards passing to Seattle earlier this
year.

sisters who will share seay ~oleased



‘

PEARL, Mississippi
Associated Press

TWO sisters whose life sentences
were suspended on the condition that
one donate a kidney to the other were
released from a Mississippi prison on
Friday after serving 16 years for an
armed robbery.

Jamie and Gladys Scott waved to
reporters and yelled,."We're free!"
and "God bless y'all!" as they left the
Central Mississippi Correctional Facil-
ity in a sport utility vehicle.

The sisters are moving to the Florida
Panhandle, where their mother and
grown children. live. Still, the women
have an uncertain future. They still
have to make sure they are a compat-
ible match for the transplant. And they
have to find a way to pay for every-
thing: Their attorney said they will try
to get government-funded Medicaid
insurance to pay for the transplant and
for 36-year-old Jamie Scott's dialysis,
which officials said had cost the state
about $200,000 a year.

First, though, they want to eat a
good meal, said their attorney, Chokwe

WASHINGTON

Lumumba.

"And you know how women are.
They want to get some clothes," he
said, speaking in an open field used
for law enforcement training just across
from the prison on a cold winter morn-
ing.

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour
agreed to release Jamie Scott because
of her medical condition, but 38-year-
old Gladys Scott must donate the kid-

ney within one year as a condition of _

her.release.

However, National Association for
the Advancement of Colored People
President and CEO Benjamin Todd
Jealous has said the governor's office
assured him the transplant condition of
release won't be enforced. —

Barbour's spokesman did not imme-
diately respond Friday to a question
about that. When asked last week if
Gladys Scott would be sent back to
jail if she is not a match or if she
changes her mind, Barbour responded
in a statement: "All of the ‘What if'
questions are, at this point, purely
hypothetical. We'll deal with those sit-
uations if they actually happen."





A few doctors
have expressed
interest in per-
forming — the
transplant, but
there are no firm
plans yet,
Lumumba said.

Some medical
experts said the
arrangement for
the sisters'
release raises
legal and ethical
concerns, but their supporters say
Gladys Scott wants to try to save her
sister's life.

For instance, the condition could be
interpreted as trading an organ for
freedom, which could violate federal
laws against selling organs, said Arthur
Caplan, director of the Center for

Jamie Scott

Bioethics at the University of Penn-

sylvania.

The American Society of Trans-
plantation. called Friday for Barbour
to issue a formal statement saying the
transplant will no longer be tied to the
women's early release from prison.






‘4

"The decision
to donate an
organ should be
a truly selfless
act, free from
coercion and not
conditioned on
financial or any
other material
gain," the
group's presi-
dent, Dr. Maryl
R. Johnson, said
in a statement.

The sisters' freedom will allow not
only for a reunion with family, but also
with each other. The two women have
been held recently in different parts
of the prison, and it's unlikely they had
much interaction in the sprawling com-
plex of 13 housing units on 171 acres
(69 hectares) along a rural stretch of
highway in central Mississippi.

The Scotts were convicted in 1994 of
an armed robbery in central Mississip-

according to court records. The rob-
bery didn't net much; amounts cited
have ranged from $11 to $200.

US nriest
accused of
pedophilia dies
in Martinique

FORT-DE-FRANCE, Mar-
tinique
Associated Press

A FORMER Roman
Catholic priest who vanished
twice amid accusations that he
sexually abused more than
two dozen children in the
U.S., including in Connecti-
cut, has died in the French
Caribbean island of Mar-
tinique, a hospital official said
Friday.

Laurence Brett died at the
Pierre Zobda Quitman hospi-
tal in the capital of Fort-de-
France on Christmas Eve, said
Joelle Louisor, a hospital
administrator.

Louisor said she did not
know the cause of death. The

' Hartford Courant newspaper

in Connecticut reported he
apparently fell down stairs and
injured his head. The Courant
said he was 73.

Brett disappeared in 1993
and was found by the Courant
in 2002 on the Dutch
Caribbean island of St.
Maarten. The newspaper
reported that he was living in
a villa by a lagoon and that he
had identified himself to
acquaintances as a writer, a
businessman and a CIA agent.

Brett then vanished again.

Two other priests later pub-
licly apologized for keeping
secret Brett's location.

Brett, who was defrocked,
was accused of sexually abus-
ing two dozen altar boys and
others in Connecticut, New
Mexico, California and Mary-
land. The accusations date

back to the 1960s.

The Archdiocese of Balti-
more did not immediately
return a message for comment
but posted a statement on its
website.

"The prayers. of the Arch-
diocese are with the victims

- of Laurence Brett and with all

victims of sexual abuse," it
said. "The Church reiterates

Office.

Klaus Hillenbrand, an expert who
has written several books on the
Nazi period, was contacted by the
historian and examined all of the
documents for an article to be pub-
lished Saturday in daily newspaper
Die Tageszeitung.

In an interview with The Associ-
ated Press, Hillenbrand called the
entire episode "completely bizarre."

"Just months before the Nazis
launched their-attack on the Soviet
Union, they had nothing better to do
than to obsess about this dog," Hil-

New documents: Hitler-mocking dog enraged Nazis

Finland cooperated with Nazi
Germany but the relationship
between the two countries was
strained.

Finland allowed the Nazis to take
over the northern part of the coun-
try after the Finns suffered heavy
casualties and lost 10 percent of their
territory to the Soviet Union in
1939-1940.

After an intense Soviet attack and
heavy bombing of its territory,
including of the capital Helsinki,
Finland made a pact with Germany
in 1944 that lasted two months. Fin-
land then annulled the pact and
made a truce with Moscow that lat-
er led to a peace treaty with the
Soviet Union.

The dog, Jackie, was a mutt
owned by Tor Borg, a businessman
from the Finnish city of Tampere.
Borg's wife Josefine, a German cit-
izen known for her anti-Nazi senti-

ments, dubbed the dog Hitler
because of the strange way it raised
its paw high in the air like Germans
greeting the Fuehrer with a cry of
"Heil Hitler!"

On January 29, 1941, German
Vice Consul Willy Erkelenz in
Helsinki wrote that "a witness, who
does not want to be named, said ...
he saw and heard how Borg's dog
reacted to the command ‘Hitler’ by
raising its paw."

Borg was ordered to the German
embassy in Helsinki and questioned
about his dog's unusual greeting
habits.

He denied ever calling the dog by
the German dictator's name, but
admitted that his wife called the dog
Hitler. He tried to play.down the
accusations, saying the paw-raising
had only happened a few times in
1933 — shortly after Hitler came to
power.

Palestinians: Israeli troops mistakenly kill man

HEBRON, West Bank
Associated Press

ISRAELI troops mistaken-
ly shot and killed a 65-year-
old Palestinian man Friday
during a pre-dawn raid to
arrest a Hamas militant in the
West Bank, Palestinian offi-
cials said.

Late Friday, four Israeli sok: .

ders were wounded in a gun-
battle with Palestinian mili-
tants on the Gaza border,
- Israeli media reported. Israel's
- military confirmed the casual-
ties, but would not elaborate.
Palestinian security and res-
cue officials in the West Bank
city of Hebron said Israeli
troops shot and killed 65-year-
“old Omar Kawasmeh, who

lived in the.same building but
on a different floor as the
Hamas militant targeted in the
raid. The officials spoke on
condition of anonymity
because no official announce-
ment was made.

Associated Press Television
footage showed a bloodstained
bed and shell casings in. the
man's bedroom.

_ The Israeli military said in a
statement that it "regrets the
outcome of the incident" and
was investigating. It said the
wanted militant had been
involved in planning suicide
bombings before his arrest by
the Palestinian Authority two
years ago.

The raid targeted one of six
Hamas fighters released from

ern-backed Palestinian
Authority, the Palestinian offi-
cials said. The militants, who
had launched a hunger strike
to protest their incarceration,
were freed following a series
of high-level contacts between
Hamas officials and Palestin-

. ian Authority officials, as well

as an intervention by the emir
of Qatar.

The Israeli military said five
of the freed militants —
including the target of the raid

in which the man was killed .

— were arrested overnight.
The Western-backed Pales-
tinian Authority has cracked
down on Hamas in areas of
the West Bank under its con-
trol. Hamas, an Islamic group
backed by Iran, runs a com-

in the Gaza Strip.

Hamas regularly condemns
the Palestinian Authority for
its cooperation with Israel,
and did so again after the
man's death Friday. Sami Abu
Zuhri, a Hamas spokesman in
Gaza, said the Palestinian
Authority and Israel were
"equal in their responsibility"

The violence later Friday
along the Gaza border broke
out after Palestinian gunmen
used the cover of heavy rain
to plant bombs along the fron-
tier and then ambush Israeli
soldiers on guard there, Israeli
media reported.

No Palestinian militant
group took responsibility for

two years ago. The campaign
aimed to end years of Pales-
tinian rocket attacks on south-
ern Israel, but rocket fire and
border clashes still occur occa-
sionally. ©

Germany halts nork, egg sales in (lioxin scare

BERLIN ;
Associated Press

GERMANY froze sales of poultry,
pork and eggs from more than 4,700
farms Friday to stem the spread of
food contaminated with cancer-caus-
ing dioxin, as fears grew that farmers
could have been using tainted live-

‘stock feed for months..

South Korea and Slovakia on Fri-
day banned the sale of some animal
products imported from Germany,
while authorities in Britain and the

Netherlands were investigating |

whether food containing German eggs
— like mayonnaise or liquid egg prod-
ucts — was safe to eat.

Prosecutors in the northern state of
Schleswig-Holstein launched an inves-
tigation into the German firm Harles
& Jentzsch GmbH, suspecting the
company knew but failed to tell
authorities that fat it had produced
for use in feed pellets was tainted with

8-16 knots

dioxin. The state agriculture ministry
said Friday it had information that the
company had been producing taint-
ed fat for months — a declaration that
shocked federal officials. ,

"Tf it is confirmed that the company
knew since March that its fat was taint-
ed but it did not inform authorities
than that is highly criminal activity,"
Agriculture Minister Ilse Aigner told
n-tv television.

‘Test results published Friday by the
Schleswig-Holstein agriculture min-

istry showed that some of the fat con-_

tained more than 77 times the

approved amount of dioxin. Out of _

30 samples tested so far, 18 contained
more dioxin than legally allowed, it
said.

Dioxins are contaminants that often

. - result from industrial combustion and

other chemical processes. Exposure
to dioxins at high levels is linked to an
increased incidence of cancer. Dioxin

New Israeli military technology speeds up warfare

SHIVTA ARTILLERY TRAINING
SCHOOL, Israel
Associated Press

INTENSE winds scraped sand from
the desert floor, clouding the view and
leaving the Israeli soldiers scarcely
able to see each other as they prac-

ticed blasting artillery shells at distant

targets.

In a nearby armored vehicle, com- -

manders armed with small screens
could easily monitor every cannon,
jeep and target involved, ordering
strikes with the tap of a finger. Their
weapon: a sophisticated communica-
tion system that compiles battlefield
information in an easy-to-use, video
game-like map interface, helping mil-
itaries make sense of the chaos of bat-
tle.

The Associated Press was given rare
access to the exercise by a military
eager to reclaim some of the deter-
rence it held in the region when tech-
nologically inferior Arab armies were
the main threat against it.

That deterrence has eroded in
recent times, as guerrilla warfare
became more prominent and left con-
ventional armies — here as elsewhere
— looking clumsy and vulnerable.

In a monthlong war in 2006,
Lebanese guerrillas with felatively
simple rockets knocked out Israeli
tanks, and Israel's high-tech military
was powerless to stop a barrage of
primitive, unguided -Katyusha rock-
ets on northern Israel.

The latest computerized gadgetry
is designed to knock down the mili-
tary's response time. Troops on the

ground can add new targets as soon as
they spot: them — like militants on
foot, a rocket squad or a vehicle —
to the network for commanders to see
instantly and hit.

Strikes that used to take 20 or more
minutes to coordinate now take just
seconds, said Maj. Hagai Ben-
Shushan, head of the C4I section for
Israel's artillery, "It doesn't take much,
then shells are going to the target,"
he said.

Israel is among several nations har-
nessing digital and satellite technolo-
gy to develop C4I systems — short
for "command, control, communica-
tions, computers and intelligence"
that integrate battlefield information.

The goal is to have "all the elements
of a force ... seeing the same tactical
picture, and you can move information

from one to the other completely

‘seamlessly," said Britain-based Giles
Ebbutt, who studies such systems for .

Jane's Information Group.

C4I systems are operational in the
United States, which started develop-
ment in the 1990s, as well as France,
Singapore, Germany, the United
Kingdom and Italy, among other
countries, Ebbutt said.

Israel's version — being developed
over the past decade or so — is "a lit-
tle bit further down the road than
some people ... because they have a
focus on the problem, they are con-
stantly operationally alert, and they

need to be as operationally developed

as they can," Ebbutt said.
The army says it started using the
first, basic version in 2005, but it did

The latest, completed in 2009 and in
training since last March, allows all
forces on the ground to communicate
instantaneously.

"Visually, now everything is on the
map, so it's much easier to coordi-
nate," said the battalion commander
whose men were being trained. "You
can easily understand the map and
the position of forces." He spoke on
condition of anonymity under mili-
tary rules.

On a stretch of sand near the army
base at Shivta, deep in Israel's south-
ern Negev desert, six artillery cannon
stood with their barrels aimed at tar-
gets about 4 miles (6 kilometers) away.
Commanders in a nearby armored
vehicle stared at two screens, watching
all movement on an interactive satel-
lite map.

LONDON
Associated Press

BRITAIN'S Scotland
Yard has written to the

* country's top-selling Sunday

tabloid to ask if it has any
evidence to support claims
that the paper spied on
celebrities, politicians and
other high-profile figures.
But the police force —

: which has been accused of

sweeping the allegations
under a rug — refused to
explain why it was asking the

+ powerful paper to volunteer

potentially incriminating evi-
dence about itself.
The force also refused to

say whether it had ever’

sought such evidence before,
or say what would happen if
the tabloid didn't comply
with its request.

The News of The World
has been at the center of the
tabloid phone hacking scan-
dal since a reporter and a





private investigator
employed by the Rupert
Murdoch title were caught
illegally eavesdropping on
the phones of the British
royal family’ s entourage.
The pair were convicted in
2007, but the News of the
World has long insisted that
they were the only ones
responsible for the sophisti-
cated phone tapping opera-
tion — a claim dismissed as
implausible by the paper's
critics.

The issue is particularly
sensitive because the
tabloid's former editor,
Andy Coulson, who stepped

‘down in the wake of the

scandal, now serves as
British Prime Minister David
Cameron's communications
director. Coulson has long
insisted he knew nothing of
the illegal goings-on at his
paper while he was in
charge.

The issue burst back on to

ACCRA, Ghana
Associated Press

THE president of Ghana on
Friday said his country is not
able to send troops to oust the
leader of Ivory Coast who is

‘unwilling to cede office after
losing presidential election in

late November.

The announcement could
complicate a move by a region-

intervention in order to allow
the internationally recognized
winner of the election Alas-
sane Ouattara to assume his
functions. He and his staff are
barricaded inside a hotel, his
exits blocked by soldiers loyal

ECOWAS, the Economic

States, has twice sent a dele-
gation to try to persuade

‘ Gbagbo to step down.

After the second attempt
failed this week, the group
began deliberating the military
option. The move is contro-

Ghanaian President John
Atta Mills said he backs
ECOWAS, but said his troops

"Ghana's position is that
even though we support the
decision by ECOWAS to send

finds itself unable to contribute
troops," because they are over-
stretched, he told reporters at a
press conference in Accra, the
capital of Ghana. "Currently,
Ghana has 500 soldiers on
United Nations missions in
Ivory Coast who are guarding
Mr. Alassane Ouattara."

The international communi-
ty has been uncharacteristical-

not recognize Gbagbo because
the results were carefully
