Chargers take Manti Te’o
in 2nd round of NFL draft

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Manti Te’o spent
Thursday night with his family in Hawaii,
watching the first round of the NFL draft and
expecting a phone call that never came.
That call finally came on Friday. San
Diego Chargers rookie general manager Tom
Telesco moved up seven spots in the second
round to draft the Notre Dame linebacker,
apparently not worried about a hoax involving
a fake girlfriend and a poor performance in the
national championship game that have dogged
Te’o for four months.
“I did expect to go in the first round. But
things happened and all it did was give me
more motivation to get better,” Te’o said in a
conference call with reporters.
“I don’t know if I have something to prove
but it definitely puts a huge fire under my butt
to just be better,” Te’o said. “Again, that’s the
best thing that ever could happen to me. I’m
already naturally a motivated person who just
wants to be the best. All yesterday did was just
give me more motivation and more fire to just
go out there and play football and do well at it.”
Asked if he dropped into the second round
because of the off-field issues and his flop in
the blowout loss to Alabama in the national
championship game, he said: “I really don’t
know. That’s a question that you’ve got to ask
the teams.”
One of those Crimson Tide stars, right tackle
D.J. Fluker, was selected by the Chargers with
the 11th pick overall Thursday night.
Two officials, each with a different team,
said their clubs passed on Te’o in the first round
partly because of his off-field issues. The men,
speaking on condition of anonymity because
team draft strategy is confidential, said the decision was not just because of a disappointing
combine performance or the linebacker’s poor
performance in the national title game.
Telesco traded with Arizona to move up
seven spots and select Te’o with the 38th pick
overall. The Chargers need inside linebackers
because Takeo Spikes was released and Demorrio Williams is a free agent.
“It’s a perfect scenario,” Te’o said. “My
parents can come and watch, I can go home,
it’s San Diego. We’re all excited. I can’t be
any happier. Just looking forward to getting up
there and getting this whole thing started.”
The Heisman Trophy runner-up became
the butt of national jokes after it was revealed
he was duped into an Internet romance he had
with a girlfriend he never met.
The too-good-to-be-true story began with
Te’o’s incredible performances after learning
his grandmother and what he believed was his
girlfriend had died within hours of one another

NEW YORK (AP) — Manti Te’o and Geno Smith provided
the sizzle previously missing from the NFL draft.
Te’o is headed to San Diego, Smith is a Jet, and Radio City
Music Hall shook with the kind of noise usually heard in stadiums when they were selected.
The theater rocked with two picks within minutes of each
other Friday night.
Te’o, the Notre Dame All-America linebacker, was chosen
sixth in the second round by the Chargers, drawing a loud roar
from the fans. One spot later, the Jets took the West Virginia
quarterback, drawing a raucous reaction of cheers and boos.
The big names had taken over from the bulk and beef of
opening night, when 18 linemen went in the first round.
Te’o, who led the Fighting Irish to the national championship game, was projected as a first-rounder last year. But his
poor performance in a rout at the hands of Alabama, some slow
40-yard dash times, and a tabloid-ready hoax involving a fake
girlfriend that became a national soap opera dropped his stock.
“I did expect to go in the first round,” Te’o said. “But things
happened and all it did was give me more motivation.”
When former Chargers defensive back Jim Hill was handed
the card to make the announcement by Commissioner Roger
Goodell, he was told, “You’re going to get a big cheer when you
announce this pick.”
It was more a mix of surprise and recognition of the most
talked-about player in the draft finally finding a landing spot at
No. 38 overall.
The Chargers traded up with Arizona to grab Te’o, the
Heisman Trophy runner-up. Te’o ran a 4.82-second 40-yard
dash at the NFL combine, slow for a linebacker. He did better
at Notre Dame’s pro day, but NFL teams already had plenty of
football reasons to doubt his worthiness as a first-round pick.
San Diego was willing to gamble on him.
“We did a lot of work on Te’o and I’ve seen him for a number
of years,” first-year general manager Tom Telesco said. “He
loves football. He’s passionate about it. He loves to practice. He
loves to play.”
Two officials, each with a different team, said their clubs
passed on Te’o in the first round partly because of his off-field
issues. The men, speaking on condition of anonymity because
team draft strategy is confidential, said the decision was not just
because of a disappointing combine performance or the linebacker’s poor performance in the national title game.
Te’o was the third linebacker chosen in this draft.

Notre Dame to play home
game at Cowboys Stadium
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Notre Dame is going to get
a preview of the stadium that will host the first championship
game in the new College Football Playoff.
The Fighting Irish will host Arizona State at Cowboys Stadium on Oct. 5.
That game is part of the school’s “Shamrock Series” in
which Notre Dame, last season’s BCS runner-up, plays home
games in different parts of the country.
The Irish’s game against Arizona State, a night game that
will be part of NBC’s package of Notre Dame games, will
come a season before Cowboys Stadium is the site of the first
title game under the new postseason system.
Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly is scheduled to be in North
Texas next week to get a first-hand look at the stadium.

Zimmermann blanks Reds
on one hit in Nats’ 1-0 win
WASHINGTON (AP) — Jordan Zimmermann was terrific in his second complete game
of the season and the Washington Nationals limited the Cincinnati Reds to one hit for the second
straight game in a 1-0 victory on Friday night.
Zimmermann (4-1) struck out four and
walked one while improving to 3-0 with a 1.36
ERA in five career games against Cincinnati.
The right-hander needed only 91 pitches to
record his third career complete game.
It was the first time the Reds managed just one
hit in consecutive games since July 5-6, 1900,
against Brooklyn, according to research by the
Elias Sports Bureau that the team provided. The
Houston Astros from Sept. 14-15, 2008, were the
last major league team with such a streak.
Xavier Paul led off the third with a single to
center for Cincinnati’s only hit off Zimmermann.
Homer Bailey (1-2) allowed one run and six
hits in seven innings for the Reds.
The Nationals’ only run came in the third.
Bryce Harper tripled to right and scored on
Jayson Werth’s single to right.
CARDINALS 9, PIRATES 1
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Carlos Beltran homered
from both sides of the plate and drove in three
runs to lead Lance Lynn and the Cardinals to
the victory. Lynn (4-0) struck out nine in seven
innings, allowing one run and two hits. The
right-hander improved to 9-0 with a 2.63 ERA
in his last 10 regular-season appearances.
Matt Carpenter and Beltran started the game
with home runs for the Cardinals, who have won
four straight and five of six.
Pirates starter Jonathan Sanchez (0-3) was
ejected in the first inning after he hit cleanup hitter
Allen Craig with a pitch. When manager Clint
Hurdle came out to argue, he also was ejected.
Pirates hitting coach Jay Bell was tossed in
the fifth inning when he argued with plate umpire
Tim Timmons after leadoff hitter Starling Marte
was hit by Lynn for the second straight time.
PHILLIES 4, METS 0
NEW YORK (AP) — Kyle Kendrick pitched
the best game of his career, throwing a threehitter for Philadelphia and getting home-run
help from Ryan Howard. The Phillies ended
their three-game skid and dropped the Mets
under .500 for the first time this season.
Kendrick (2-1) scattered three singles and
didn’t permit a runner beyond second base.
Philadelphia broke a scoreless tie in the sixth
inning when Michael Young hit an RBI single
and Howard followed with a long three-run
homer off Dillon Gee (1-4).
ROCKIES 6, DIAMONDBACKS 3
PHOENIX (AP) — Troy Tulowitzki hit a
bases-loaded double with two out in the fifth
inning, leading Colorado to the victory.
Michael Cuddyer had two-out, two-run
single in the first, and Wilin Rosario added a
solo homer in the sixth for the Rockies.
Juan Nicasio (3-0) pitched long enough to earn
the win, going five innings and allowing three
runs and four hits. Rafael Betancourt earned his
eighth save with a scoreless ninth inning.
Brandon McCarthy pitched six innings for
Arizona and was charged with six runs and nine
hits. He struck out seven but dropped to 0-3 on
the season with a 7.48 ERA.
PADRES 2, GIANTS 1
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Andrew Cashner
pitched six effective innings and contributed
a big hit at the plate, helping the San Diego to
the win. Cashner (1-1) allowed one run and five
hits, struck out five and walked one. He retired
the last 12 batters he faced, avenging a 2-0 loss
to Tim Lincecum and the Giants last Saturday.
Cashner also picked up his second major
league hit and scored San Diego’s first run in its
two-run third inning. Lincecum (2-1) struck out
nine and allowed six hits in seven innings. Huston
Street worked the ninth for his fourth save.
CUBS 4, MARLINS 2
MIAMI (AP) — Anthony Rizzo had two
home runs and four RBIs to power the Cubs to
back-to-back wins for the first time this season.
Rizzo’s second career two-homer game gave
him eight on the season, the most by a Cubs lefthanded hitter in April. Billy Williams (1970)
and Henry Rodriguez (2000) each hit seven.
Scott Feldman (1-3) allowed two runs in
6 2-3 innings, and Kevin Gregg recorded his
second save. Darwin Barney had three hits for
Chicago, which beat Miami 4-3 on Thursday
and had been 0-6 following a win.
Wade LeBlanc (0-4) gave up four runs in sixplus innings and Joe Mahoney hit his first career
homer for the Marlins.
DODGERS 7, BREWERS 5
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Adrian Gonzalez
drove in the tying and go-ahead runs with a twoout double in the seventh inning, Carl Crawford
homered and the Dodgers beat the Brewers.
Justin Sellers greeted reliever Burke
Badenhop (0-2) with a leadoff single in the seventh and advanced on a sacrifice bunt by Jerry
Hairston Jr. Nick Punto drew a two-out walk
from Michael Gonzalez, and Adrian Gonzalez
followed with a drive off the glove of center
fielder Carlos Gomez as Sellers and Punto
scored to give Los Angeles a 5-4 lead.
The Dodgers extended the margin to 7-4 in
the eighth on a run-scoring groundout by Hairston and an RBI single by Crawford.
Ronald Belisario (2-2) got the victory.
Brandon League gave up a run in the ninth, but
earned his seventh save.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Tim Duncan had 26 points and nine
rebounds, and the San Antonio Spurs pushed the Los Angeles
Lakers to the brink of first-round playoff elimination with
a 120-89 victory in Game 3 on Friday night, the worst home
playoff loss in franchise history.
Tony Parker had 20 points and seven assists as the Spurs
methodically seized control of the series by dominating their
third straight meeting with the short-handed Lakers, who played
without their top four guards due to injury.
Dwight Howard had 25 points and 11 rebounds, and Pau
Gasol added his first career playoff triple-double with 11 points,
13 rebounds and 10 assists, but the Spurs were far too much for a
team without Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash. Andrew Goudelock
scored a career-high 20 points in his first playoff start.
The Spurs can close it out in Game 4 on Sunday night.
The Lakers exceeded their 29-point home loss to Portland on
May 22, 2000, the previous worst home defeat for the 16-time
NBA champion franchise.
With Bryant and Nash joined by Jodie Meeks and Steve Blake
on the injured list, the Lakers started Goudelock and Darius
Morris, using a starting five that had never started together for
the second time in three games. Morris added 24 points, getting
12 in the fourth quarter of the historic blowout.
KNICKS 90, CELTICS 76
BOSTON (AP) — Carmelo Anthony scored 26 points and
New York moved to the brink of its first playoff series victory in
13 years, routing Boston in Game 3.
Quickly taking the crowd out of it in the first NBA game
here since the Boston Marathon bombings, the Knicks built a
16-point halftime lead and now are on the verge of taking out
the Celtics.
Raymond Felton added 15 points and 10 assists for the
Knicks, who haven’t advanced in the playoffs since reaching the
2000 Eastern Conference finals. They will go for the sweep here
Sunday afternoon.
They’ll have to hope they have J.R. Smith, who inexplicably
threw an elbow right into Jason Terry’s face with 7:06 left and
was thrown out of the game with a flagrant foul 2, an automatic
ejection. The league office will review the play and can fine or
suspend Smith.
Jeff Green scored 21 points for the Celtics, who will try to
become the first NBA team to win a series after trailing 3-0.
WARRIORS 110, NUGGETS 108
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Stephen Curry played through
a sprained left ankle to score 29 points and Golden State beat
Denver Nuggets to take a 2-1 series lead.
Curry also had 11 assists, Jarrett Jack added 23 points and
seven assists, and Harrison Barnes and Carl Landry each scored
19 points to help the Warriors rally from 13 points down in the
third quarter. Golden State still had to sweat out Andre Iguodala’s missed 3-pointer as the buzzer sounded, setting off a goldconfetti celebration throughout the announced sellout crowd of
19,596.
Ty Lawson had a career playoff-high 35 points to go with 10
assists, and reserve Corey Brewer scored 16 points as Denver
dropped its second straight game — and its grip on the best-ofseven series.
Game 4 is Sunday night in Oakland.

Duncan leads Spurs’ rout,
pushin’ Lakers to the brink
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Tim Duncan
had 26 points and nine rebounds, and the San
Antonio Spurs pushed the Los Angeles Lakers
to the brink of first-round playoff elimination
with a 120-89 victory in Game 3 on Friday
night, the worst home playoff loss in franchise
history.
Tony Parker had 20 points and seven assists
as the Spurs methodically seized control of
the series by dominating their third straight
meeting with the short-handed Lakers, who
played without their top four guards due to
injury.
Dwight Howard had 25 points and 11
rebounds, and Pau Gasol added his first
career playoff triple-double with 11 points, 13
rebounds and 10 assists, but the Spurs were
far too much for a team without Kobe Bryant
and Steve Nash. Andrew Goudelock scored a
career-high 20 points in his first playoff start.
The Spurs can close it out in Game 4 on
Sunday night.
The Lakers exceeded their 29-point home
loss to Portland on May 22, 2000, the previous worst home defeat for the 16-time NBA
champion franchise. Staples Center’s lower
bowl was half empty in the final minutes, an
unfamiliar sight in an arena used to celebrating
championships.
The Lakers haven’t lost in the first round
of the postseason since 2007, but they appear
unable to contend with the tested, veteran
Spurs. San Antonio led throughout the final 44
minutes, going up by 18 in the first half and 25
early in the fourth quarter with their smooth,
flexible offense.
Tiago Splitter limped to the Spurs’ locker
room late in the third quarter with a sprained
left ankle, but not much else went poorly
for San Antonio while silencing the Lakers’
enthusiastic crowd.
With Bryant and Nash joined by Jodie
Meeks and Steve Blake on the injured list, the
Lakers started Goudelock and Darius Morris,
using a starting five that had never started
together for the second time in three games.
Morris added 24 points, getting 12 in the
fourth quarter of the historic blowout.
After finishing the regular season with
a loss at Staples Center among their seven
defeats in their final 10 games, the Spurs took
control of the series with two methodical wins
in San Antonio. Nash was largely ineffective
after missing the final eight regular-season
games, and the Spurs’ veteran chemistry was
more than enough to finish off the Lakers.
The first half of Game 3 had the same
theme. San Antonio jumped to an 18-point
lead late in the second quarter with steady
offense from 10 scorers, while the Lakers had
an understandable lack of chemistry.
The Lakers’ tumultuous season appears to
be drawing to a merciful end, since they’re
nearly out of healthy players after beginning
the season with a star-studded roster and
championship aspirations.
Nine of the Lakers’ 15 players were on their
injury report for Game 3, and Metta World
Peace played despite getting fluid drained
from a cyst behind his surgically repaired left
knee.
Bryant attended the game, hobbling
through the Lakers’ locker room before the
game with crutches and a large walking boot
on his immobilized ankle, but didn’t join
Nash, Blake and Meeks watching in suits at
courtside.
The Lakers were forced to rely on Goudelock, their second-round draft pick from
two years ago who spent this season in the
D-League until Los Angeles signed him 12
days ago, and Morris, another second-year pro
who rarely left the Lakers’ bench this season.
Goudelock, the MVP of the NBA’s
D-League this season, put up plenty of points
with ample opportunity to shoot, but Parker
largely matched him while Duncan thoroughly
outplayed Howard and Gasol down low with
his timeless game as the Spurs pulled away.
Goudelock started slowly, but scored 10
points in a 2:25 burst late in the second quarter
to trim San Antonio’s halftime lead to 55-44.
NOTES: Gasol is the seventh player to post
a playoff triple-double in Lakers history. ... F
Boris Diaw, the Spurs’ only player with a significant injury, is running on a treadmill and
shooting in his comeback from the removal
of a cyst from his spine. He’s likely to play
2-on-2 with contact next week. ... World
Peace ran with obvious discomfort in his
knee. Before the game, he considered sitting
out, but didn’t feel he could miss a game with
the Lakers’ injury woes. ... Ashton Kutcher,
David Arquette, Jon Heder and “Mad Men”
creator Matthew Weiner watched from
courtside.

Yanks overcome
injuries to beat
Blue Jays, 6-4
NEW YORK (AP) — David Phelps struck out a career-high
nine in four innings after relieving the injured Ivan Nova, Chris
Stewart threw out two baserunners to quash potential rallies as an
emergency fill-in for Francisco Cervelli and the New York Yankees beat the wild Toronto Blue Jays 6-4 Friday night.
Lyle Overbay hit a go-ahead RBI triple and Vernon Wells had a
sacrifice fly off Aaron Laffey in an inning the fill-in starter for Josh
Johnson walked four, helping New York overcome two homers by
Edwin Encarnacion.
David Robertson yielded a long homer to Jose Bautista in the
eighth but Brett Gardner restored New York’s two-run lead with a
homer in the bottom half of the inning. Mariano Rivera loaded the
bases with two outs in the ninth but struck out Colby Rasmus to
end it for his eighth save in eight chances. Phelps (1-1) earned the
victory. Brad Lincoln (0-1) took the loss.
RANGERS 4, TWINS 3
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Adrian Beltre homered and rookie
Justin Grimm won his second consecutive start and the Rangers
beat the Twins. Lance Berkman, Nelson Cruz and Ian Kinsler each
had RBI doubles for the Rangers, who won for the seventh time in
their past eight games.
Grimm (2-0) followed up his career-best nine-strikeout effort
against the Seattle Mariners by shutting out Minnesota for seven
innings, allowing five hits and no walks with four strikeouts.
The 24-year-old right-hander, filling in for the injured Matt Harrison, has allowed just one earned run in his past 15 1-3 innings.
Rookie outfielder Oswaldo Arcia hit a three-run homer off Joe
Nathan in the ninth inning after Joe Ortiz allowed a pair of hits, but
he got Ryan Doumit to fly out to earn his eighth save.
Scott Diamond (1-2) gave up three runs and 12 hits in 6 1-3
innings as the Twins lost their third straight and were shut out for
the second time this season.
WHITE SOX 5, RAYS 4
CHICAGO (AP) — Jake Peavy pitched well into the seventh
and the White Sox supported him with three homers to rally from
a three-run deficit and beat the Rays.
Peavy (3-1) gave up home runs to Matt Joyce and Evan Longoria and fell behind 3-0 in the fourth, but the White Sox overpowered Rays starter Roberto Hernandez (1-4) for their first threegame winning streak of the season.
Peavy allowed three runs and six hits, with seven strikeouts, in
6 2-3 innings. Hector Gimenez, Tyler Greene and Conor Gillaspie
all homered for the White Sox.
RED SOX 7, ASTROS 3
BOSTON (AP) — David Ross cleared the Green Monster
twice with solo home runs and Ryan Dempster struck out 10 for
the Red Sox in a win over the Astros.
David Ortiz homered for the second straight night at Fenway
Park. The Red Sox are having one of the best Aprils in club history. Boston (16-7) is two wins short of tying the club record for
the month with three games remaining.
Erik Bedard (0-2) allowed five runs on eight hits over three
innings for Houston. The Astros lost for the fifth time in seven
games and fell to 0-5 at Fenway. Boston finished with 17 hits and
nine were for extra bases, including back-to-back homers by Will
Middlebrooks and Ross to open the fourth.
ORIOLES 3, ATHLETICS 0
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Wei-Yin Chen pitched eight strong
innings, giving up only two hits to help the Orioles beat the Athletics. Jim Johnson completed the three-hitter by getting the final
three outs for his ninth save. The Orioles have won seven of their
last nine games while the A’s have dropped seven of eight.
Chen (2-2) was brilliant, not allowing a runner to reach third
base. He struck out five and walked two.
The Orioles broke a scoreless tie in the seventh inning as J.J.
Hardy lead off against Tommy Milone (3-2) with a single that A’s
right-fielder Josh Reddick bobbled for an error allowing Hardy
to go to second. After an out, Steve Pearce drove him in with a
sharply hit ball past diving A’s shortstop Adam Rosales.
Baltimore added two runs in the ninth against Oakland reliever
Ryan Cook on an error and sacrifice fly.
ANGELS 6, MARINERS 3
SEATTLE (AP) — Hank Conger and Mark Trumbo each hit
two-run homers and C.J. Wilson worked out of a pair of basesloaded jams to help give the Angels a victory over the Mariners.
Wilson (2-0) went 5 1-3 innings, allowing seven hits and three
runs. He walked two and struck out a season-high nine.
Ernesto Frieri pitched the ninth for his third save in three
chances. The Angels would not let Mariners’ starter Aaron Harang
(0-3) settle in. They scored in each of the first three innings for a
5-0 lead, chasing Harang before the fourth.

Vikings 1st with 3
No. 1s since 2001

ball playoff series, Friday, April 26, 2013, in Los Angeles. ➧ Te’o time in San Diego, Smith to Jets…
Continued from page B1
“It’s a perfect scenario. My parents can come
and watch, I can go home, it’s San Diego,” said
Te’o, a native of Hawaii. “We’re all excited. I
can’t be any happier.”
With the very next pick, the Jets sent their
QB situation spiraling into further chaos. They
already have Mark Sanchez, who struggled
last season but was brought back in great part
because of a prohibitive contract. They still
have Tim Tebow, who almost certainly soon
will be cut. They signed David Garrard, who
hasn’t played in the NFL since 2010.
And now there is Smith, who waited futilely
throughout the first round, returned to the theater Friday and was rewarded.
“It’s extremely relieving. I withstood the test
of time,” he said. “It felt like forever in there.”
If Smith thought that was tough, wait until
he enters the cauldron overseen by Jets coach
Rex Ryan, where every move by every QB on
the roster is tabloid-Internet fodder for days.
“I’m a competitor and I’m going to accept
my role on the team, whatever is handed to
me,” Smith said, “but my job is to compete day
in and day out.”
Safety Johnathan Cyprien of Florida International was the first selection of the second
round. Cyprien was a standout in the Sun Belt
Conference and really solidified his stock with
an excellent performance in the Senior Bowl.
“He’s got a passion for the game,” coach
Gus Bradley said. “He is very animated. He just
enjoys it. He loves to play the game. I think he’s
going to add to what we have here and the attitude that we’re looking for.”
Arizona added some spice to the third round by
selecting former LSU cornerback-kick returner
Tyrann Mathieu. The Honey Badger was a 2011
Heisman Trophy finalist that LSU dismissed
from the team last August for failing a drug test.
He was arrested in late October after police said
they found marijuana at Mathieu’s apartment.
“He impressed me so much in my office one on
one, knowing at this point in time what he needs
to do in his life,” Cardinals first-year coach Bruce
Arians said. “I was really taken aback a little bit.
He knows what his problems are, he knows what
he has done to himself, but he also knows that
someone will give him a chance, that he knows
what he needs to make sure he succeeds.”
Other notable second-round picks Friday
were Tennessee wide receiver Justin Hunter by
the Titans, who traded up with San Francisco;
Stanford All-America tight end Zach Ertz by
Philadelphia; and North Carolina’s Gio Bernard,
the first running back chosen, by Cincinnati.
After no running backs were selected in the
first round, five were taken in the second. The
number of linemen dropped to five.
The presumed top-rated running back, Eddie
Lacy of Alabama, went with the next-to-last
selection of the round, to Green Bay.
NCAA record-setting RB Montee Ball of
Wisconsin was chosen by Denver. Tampa Bay’s
first pick this year was defensive back Johnthan
Banks of Mississippi State at No. 43 overall.
Washington, which traded it first-rounder last
year to draft Robert Griffin III, went for defensive back David Amerson of North Carolina
State at No. 51.
New England, known for trading early picks
for a bunch of later selections, chose linebacker
Jamie Collins of Southern Mississippi at No. 52.
Seattle, after trading down six spots with Baltimore, closed out the second round by taking
running back Christine Michael of Texas A&M.
Cleveland used its second-rounder, which
would have been 39th overall, in last year’s
supplemental draft to take wide receiver Josh
Gordon of Baylor, who made 50 catches for the
Browns in 2012.
New Orleans was stripped of its secondround pick in the bounty scandal. The final pick
of Day 2 was the Titans’ selection of Missouri
linebacker Zaviar Gooden.
Among those who didn’t go were quarterbacks Matt Barkley of Southern California,
Landry Jones of Oklahoma and Ryan Nassib of
Syracuse; South Carolina RB Marcus Lattimore,
who is recovering from a severe knee injury; and
two starters from national champion Alabama,
OL Barrett Jones and DT Jesse Williams.
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Vikings President Mark Wilf and brother Zygi were wrapping up an organization-wide meeting on Friday morning when the newest members of the team walked into the room. All three of them.
The morning after the Vikings became the first team since the
St. Louis Rams in 2001 to grab three players in the first-round,
Florida defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd, Florida State cornerback
Xavier Rhodes and Tennessee receiver Cordarrelle Patterson
were walking through the halls of team headquarters and delivering quite a jolt while doing so.
“You could just feel the energy in the building,” Mark Wilf
said. “Not just three first-round picks, but great players and the
kind of people we want as Minnesota Vikings in terms of on and
off the field.” The only other time in Vikings history the team
has had three players was in 1967. So take the usual pomp and
circumstance surrounding the arrival of a first-round draft pick
and multiply it by three, and there’s no wonder why so many
smiles could be seen on faces at Winter Park on Friday.
The Vikings chose Floyd, a highly-rated heir apparent to Kevin
Williams, 23rd overall. Then they took Rhodes, the kind of big,
physical cornerback needed to matchup against the likes of Calvin
Johnson and Brandon Marshall in the NFC North with the 25th pick.
And before the night was over, they traded back into the first round
to get Patterson, a raw but physically gifted receiver, at No. 29.
The three youngsters address three areas of need on a team
that made a surprising run to the playoffs last season, ramping
up expectations even further for 2013, when the team will break
ground on the new stadium that gained approval for public
funding last year.
The Vikings had to give up their second and third-round picks
as part of the package to move up and take Patterson, leaving them
without a selection on the second day of the draft. They also added
a fourth-rounder and a seventh-rounder. That was no problem for
Spielman because the Vikings had two fourth-round picks and
three seventh-rounders this year, leaving him with plenty of draft
picks in the final four rounds on Saturday to add depth.
“In a normal draft, if you have a first-round pick, a secondround pick and a third-round pick, was there any chance you
could get these three players? No way,” Spielman said. “So to
be aggressive and get these three first-round picks, which I’ve
never done in my entire career, it was kind of a unique opportunity that presented itself.”
The new players certainly felt the warm reception.
“The energy was ecstatic,” Floyd said. “Everyone was happy
and greeting us with open arms and we felt like we were part of
the family as soon as we walked into this (building). We’re just
glad to be here.”
Patterson will wear No. 84 in purple, a number previously
worn by star receiver Randy Moss. Patterson said he grew up
idolizing Moss and hopes to bring the same kind of juice to the
Vikings offense that Moss once did.
“It feels pretty good,” Patterson said. “It’s not usual to get three
first round picks. It hasn’t been done since 2001. It feels great, even
though they play defense I will have to go against them every day.
I know Xavier is going to bring it every day and I’m going to try
bringing it to him and try to get each other better.”
➧ Chargers take Manti Te’o…
Continued from page B1
in September. Te’o said it inspired him to play his best football
all season, and it was so compelling that it helped turn Te’o into
a Heisman Trophy contender as he was leading the Fighting
Irish to an undefeated regular season and into the national
championship game. On Dec. 26, Te’o notified Notre Dame
officials that he had received a call from his supposedly dead
girlfriend’s phone three weeks earlier.
The school investigated and on Jan. 16 — after Deadspin.com
broke the story of the fake girlfriend — athletic director Jack
Swarbrick announced at a news conference that Te’o had been
duped. Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, 22, later said he created the online
persona of Lennay Kekua, a nonexistent woman who Te’o said
he fell in love with despite never meeting her in person.
Te’o said everything he’s gone through has increased his
passion for the game because “that’s my sanctuary, that’s my
fortress where I’m most comfortable. All it has done is made
me look forward to when I’m back on that field again.”
“He’s a great kid,” Telesco said. “We did a lot of work on
Te’o and I’ve seen him for a number of years. He loves football.
He’s passionate about it. He loves to practice. He loves to play.
He’s a lot like D.J. in that regard. He’ll bring that to us.”
Needing another linebacker, “Te’o can step in,” the GM
said. “We thought he was the most instinctive and productive
linebacker in the draft. He’s going to fit in excellent with our
3-4 defense with how we’re going to play our linebackers. He’s
going to complement Donald Butler really well. We thought in
order to get him we had to be aggressive and go up and do it.”

it’s at in
American Samoa

Carolina is flanked by head coach John Fox, left, and Vice President John Elway at the NFL football team’s headquarters in Englewood, Colo., on Friday, April 26, 2013. (AP Photo/Ed Andrieski)
Going back to school
led to “NFL dreams”
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Sylvester
Williams took an unconventional path to the
NFL.
An enigma as both a late-bloomer and a quick
study, Williams started just one football game
in high school in Jefferson City, Mo., where
he admittedly wasn’t much of a student or an
athlete.
He twice got kicked off the basketball team
for poor grades and eventually was expelled for
ditching too many classes.
After high school, Williams went to work in
a factory making radiator parts and $400 a week,
good money for a 19-year-old. But the thought
of hearing those whistles announcing lunch and
cigarette breaks for the next four decades got
him to thinking about giving the gridiron and the
classroom another shot.
“I started getting a feeling that I could play
football in my future sometime and I really
wanted to go back to school and get a degree,”
Williams recounted Friday after donning a
Broncos cap at team headquarters.
While punching a clock, all those hours in the
classroom or on the football field didn’t seem so
bad, after all.
His life took a turn one weekend in the fall of
2008 when he and his high school strength coach
went to Lawrence, Kan., to watch a friend play
for the Jayhawks in their game against Texas
Tech.
While waiting for him afterward, Williams
realized he was looking eye-to-eye with all the
behemoth linemen who had looked so much
bigger to him on TV.
He started thinking that could be him.
“I realized they were around the same size
and height as me. I realized I had an opportunity
to play and I thought I had the ability so I thought
I’d give it a try,” Williams said.
He was pushing 370 pounds by the time he
showed up — unannounced, uninvited and
unwanted — at Coffeyville Community College
in Kansas, where coach Darian Dulin had taken
one look at his high school tape and told him not
to bother.
He promised to work hard and Dulin gave him
that second chance that made all the difference.
After soaking up instruction and sunshine that
spring and summer, Williams entered the fall
weighing in at 315 pounds and Dulin put him on
scholarship.
“When I went to Coffeyville, I told them I’m
going to start a new life,” Williams said. “I went
in there and gave them everything I had in the
classroom as well as on the field. It paid off; I
worked hard every day and did exactly what the
coaches told me. It helped me get to where I am
today.”
By the time his two years at Coffeyville
were up, recruiters were lining up at his door.
No longer did he have to go begging for a shot
but instead found himself sifting through several
scholarship offers from all the big schools salivating over this late-bloomer.
Williams chose North Carolina, where he collected a combined 96 stops, 20½ tackles for loss
and 8½ sacks the last two seasons.
On Friday night, the Broncos chose the
24-year-old with the 28th overall pick.
From punching a time clock to hitting the tackling sleds, it’s been both a long, winding journey
and a fast rise for the quick 6-foot-2, 313-pound
defensive tackle whom the Broncos envision
collapsing the pocket from the middle, helping
pass-rusher Von Miller get to the quarterback.
“Well, I think that’s a reason for his maturity,” Broncos coach John Fox said of Williams’
unconventional path to the pros. “The guy kind
of understands what a blessing it is to have that
kind of ability. He’s going to try to make the
most of it.”
All the stops on his journey have helped him
become one of the best players in a draft deep on
linemen.
“I worked at that factory, and I know exactly
what it’s like to do that, and that’s where I never
want to be at again in my life,” Williams said.
“This is the first step to better my future. I thank
the Denver Broncos and I promise you all I’m
going to continue to work hard because I’ve
been like that for my whole life.
“I worked in that factory, and it showed me
what hard work really is. Being able to play football as a job is a blessing.”
And the Broncos consider themselves fortunate that Williams slipped down the draft board,
which scuttled any plans to trade out of the first
round for a second straight year.
“We’ve been looking for a young anchor on
the inside for a long, long time and we really
believe we have found him,” Broncos boss John
Elway said.
The last defensive lineman selected with the
team’s top pick was Trevor Pryce, also at No. 28,
in 1997, and Pryce went on to become a fourtime Pro Bowler.
“This guy is a little better than Trevor,”
Elway said. “Trevor was more of a pass rush,
lighter type, quicker guy. Sylvester is very quick
and sudden ... I tell you: I hope he has the career
that Trevor had. Then we’ll be in good shape.”

Jones set to finally defend
his UFC title versus Sonnen
by DAN GELSTON,

No excuses. Jon Jones has
had months, not days, to prepare this time around for Chael
Sonnen. That doesn’t sound like
good news for Sonnen.
In a bout at least eight months
in the making, Jones will defend
his light heavyweight championship for a fifth time when he
fights Sonnen at UFC 159 Saturday at the Prudential Center.
Jones hasn’t lost since he beat
Shogun Rua, also at the Prudential Center, in March 2011 and
has established himself 1-2 with
Anderson Silva as the best MMA
has to offer. Jones’ reign was
besmirched only by his refusal
to fight Sonnen on eight days’
notice at UFC 151 in September
after contender Dan Henderson
was forced to withdraw because
of injury. Jones didn’t want to
risk his title against a last-minute
replacement in Sonnen, so he
balked at the fight.
UFC president Dana White
was forced to cancel a pay-perview show for the first time in his
tenure, igniting trash talk between
White and Jones before tempers
mellowed and the promotion’s
booming business went on as
usual. Now, it’s time to fight in the
octagon. Just how Jones likes it.
“This fight with Chael,” Jones said,
“it ties me in with pure peace.”
For all his prowess inside
the cage, Jones (17-1) is more
mellow when it comes to pushing
fights. Sonnen’s mouth is up
there with some of the greats of
pro wrestling when it comes to
cutting promos. Sonnen’s never
met a microphone or camera he
didn’t like and has perfected the
art of the sound bite to hype his
fights, something his critics say
has gotten him more title fights
than his record.
Sonnen (28-12-1) co-owns a
pizza place and named a special
pie — topped with chicken —
for Jones. There was a line on
Distracted
Driving
Awareness
Month
Office of
Highway Safety
the menu that told fans to order
fast, “before our chicken runs
out and we have to cancel.”
Jones, ahem, wouldn’t bite
on a volley. Focused on his title
bout, he refused to return any
bulletin-board quotes back at
Sonnen. Plus, he doesn’t need to
mouth off to push a fight.
Only Hall of Famer Tito
Ortiz has been more successful
in UFC history at keeping a belt
like Jones. Should Jones win,
he’d tie Ortiz for most consecutive successful title defenses
with five. After beating Rua,
Jones went on to beat Rampage Jackson, Lyoto Machida,
Rashad Evans and Vitor Belfort.
Jones said he’d like to set
the record of six straight title
defenses around November
before crossing weight classes
and moving on to a dream fight,
perhaps a record-payday bout
against someone like Silva.
Sonnen’s last two losses were
against Silva, including a competitive five-round bout in 2010
for the middleweight championship. His close calls have kept
him in the middle title picture
at two weight classes. But after
fighting Silva, and scouting
Jones, Sonnen said he knows
who is the best of the two.
“I think Jon is considerably
better than Anderson,” Sonnen
said. “Sometimes I hear that I
don’t deserve this fight or I’m not
the right guy, but then I hear that
Anderson could beat him. Well,
you’ve got to be kidding me? I
stomped Anderson Silva twice.”
Jones and Sonnen coached
against each other during the
recent season of “The Ultimate
Fighter” and gained a new respect
for each other.
Well, at least Sonnen did. “He
cared a lot about his team,” Sonnen
said. “He took coaching very seriously. He was on time every time.
And he inspired a bunch of guys
that really needed it.”
Again, UFC will put on a
showcase card in New Jersey
while it remains locked out
of New York. The New York
Senate approved a bill last month
to legalize and regulate MMA,
the combat sport that includes
boxing, judo, wrestling and kickboxing, and most states allow it.
The Assembly has blocked the
legislation for seven years.
Jones, an ex-college wrestler
and the brother of 2 NFL players,
said he’d love to represent his home
state of New York and fight like
idols Muhammad Ali and Mike
Tyson at Madison Square Garden.
Sonnen, who’s mostly heaped
praise on Jones, said the fighter
known as “Bones” would be a
perfect match for UFC’s possible
debut at MSG. “As great as Jon is,
I don’t think that he understands
how good he is,” Sonnen said.
“You know, for him to pay tribute
to Mike Tyson and Muhammad
Ali was a very nice thing for him
to do. The reality is Jon Jones
could beat up Mike Tyson and
Muhammad Ali in the same day.
And when he says he wants to
be the best ever, Jon, news flash,
buddy, you are the best.”

TELL ME A STORY: DANCE OF THE SACRED BIRD
(a Zuni tale)
“You can talk?” she asked softly.
upon a time there lived a young Zuni girl
named Liseli. She was one of the most
beautiful girls in all of New Mexico,
but she was terribly poor and all alone
in this world. No one paid attention to
her or recognized her inner or outward
beauty. She was always dressed in tattered clothes, her face streaked with
sweat and dirt as she worked day and
night herding turkeys.
Liseli did not mind her work. She
loved these creatures that her people
called “Earth eagles,” for they had
brought her people many blessings.
The turkeys taught the Zuni people how
to grow corn and fight off evil spirits.
They helped the people to recognize the
blessings of the Earth.
Liseli was humble and kind, and the
turkeys loved her and always followed
her lead. She seemed to have a magic
way.
One day, when she was 16, Liseli
was driving the turkeys to pasture when
she heard the village priest proclaiming
from his pueblo that in just four days
the village would celebrate the Dance
of the Sacred Bird. There would be
feasting and dancing.
“Wear your finest clothes!” the
priest announced. “We shall dance until
dawn.”
Liseli had never been to a festival.
She had never joined in the celebration
of the summer solstice. She had never
danced. Her heart sank; she longed
to go, but she did not have beautiful
clothing. She would never be welcomed looking the way she did after a
hard day’s work. And she had no one to
help her prepare.
Soon she began to dream aloud of a
time when she might dance, when one
day she might fall in love.
“Someday I’ll dance with a handsome young man,” Liseli sighed.
“Someday.”
At sunset, she led the turkeys back to
their corral and closed the gate behind
them.
“Goodnight, my friends,” she said.
At dawn, Liseli was once again
driving the turkeys out to pasture, and
she passed by many villagers preparing
for the dance. Women were cooking
big pots of food, and young girls fussed
with their sashes. They painted moccasins. Everyone in the village seemed to
be celebrating already.
A tear dropped from Liseli’s eye as
she realized that once again she would
be left out of the fun. But just as they
reached the farthest field, the largest,
oldest turkey, nearly 12 years old,
strutted up to her. This was a turkey
Liseli had known all its life. To her
amazement, the turkey began to speak.
“Maiden mother,” he said, “we all
talked about your dream. We want you
to enjoy the festival in honor of the
Sacred Bird.”
When Liseli had recovered from her
surprise, she bent down and looked the
turkey in the eye.
men of the village.”
Liseli’s heart filled with joy, but she
shook her head and said, “Why waste
your words to speak of the impossible?
There is no sense of talking nonsense.”
But the turkey stood his ground and
insisted, “We’ll dress you prettily, and
everyone will wish to dance with you.
But you must promise us you will never
forget us.”
Liseli stared in wonder and replied,
“How could I forget you? You have
been my life.”
The turkey shivered with happiness, but he went on: “You have been
a humble and hard-working girl, Liseli,
and you have always been kind. But
sometimes when people grow rich
in material wealth, they forget their
humble beginnings.”
“I could never forget you!” Liseli
said.
And so the turkey instructed her to
bring all her clothing the next day.
The next morning, Liseli brought

stepped forward one after another and
pecked at the pieces. They surrounded
those rags and shook their feathers, and
after a while, to Liseli’s astonishment,
items of clothing as beautiful as any
she had ever seen emerged from those
tatters. When she put on her deerskin
moccasins and her manta, a beautiful
dress wrapped with a sash, and pulled
on her deerskin leggings known as
puttee, she looked lovelier than any
woman had ever looked.
“Go now,” the turkeys said in
unison. “But leave the gate open in
case you forget about us. And return
before midnight or we will know you
no longer care.”
“I will never forget you, I promise,”
she said over and over, but at their
insistence, she left the gate open for
them and hurried to the dance.
When she walked into the gathering,
everyone turned at the sight of this
exquisite woman.
“She must be a princess.”
“Why has she honored us with her
presence?”
The young men of the village each
asked her to dance. All night long she
was not left alone, and as the night
wore on, Liseli grew happier and happier. Indeed, she started to wonder how
she could ever leave this life of joy and
fun for the company of turkeys.
And so she stayed and danced, and
the hours passed.
And she forgot about the time.
When midnight struck, Liseli suddenly remembered her promise. She
broke away from her partner and hurried back to her old friends, but by the
time she had reached the corral, the
turkeys were gone.
She ran out to the fields calling to
them, but they were nowhere in sight.
And as she stood there, her beautiful
clothing turned once again to rags.
Once again, she was left all alone.

MECHANIC SELLING
CERAMIC BRAKE
PADS KNEW WHAT
HE WAS really
TALKING ABOUT
BY TOM & RAY MAGLIOZZI
Dear Tom and Ray:
I recently needed to replace
my brakes, and the shop sold me
on ceramic brake pads. The pads
have a lifetime warranty, which
is very appealing. I also was told
that ceramic pads will generally
prevent rotors from warping, eliminating the pulsating affect that one feels when braking with warped
rotors. After making the purchase, I’ve been told by several people
that ceramic pads wear the rotors more evenly, preventing warping,
but they also wear the rotors far more quickly. In your experience, did
I save money by going with ceramic pads? Or am I actually spending
more money, both up front (on the pads) and down the road (on additional rotors)? -- Jared
RAY: Here’s the brief, sordid history of brake pads, Jared. The first
pads were made out of shoe bottoms. My brother remembers sticking
his foot out the door and dragging his shoe on the road until the car
either stopped or hit something.
TOM: Yeah. That was last week, in my ‘78 Fiat!
RAY: Brake pads in recent years have been made out of asbestos,
other organic materials, semi-metallic materials like steel wool and iron
and, most recently, ceramic compounds mixed with copper strands.
TOM: Each of these materials had its advantages and disadvantages. For example, asbestos brake pads were nice and quiet, but they
caused lung cancer. Non-asbestos,
organic pads were safe for humans
but didn’t always stop the car very
well. Semi-metallic pads performed well but made obnoxious
brake noises and left black brake
dust all over people’s wheels.
RAY: So the current state of
the art is the ceramic pad, which
seems to balance all of the criteria of brake pads pretty well. It
lasts a good long time, stops the
car well, dissipates heat quickly,
absorbs noise better than metallic
pads and leaves a nice, light-colored brake dust that’s a lot less
visible and bothersome than the
black stuff.
TOM: So, you got the right
pads, Jared. That’s what we use
on our customers’ cars these days,
mostly to eliminate complaints
about noise and dust.
RAY: When ceramic brakes
first came out, I remember that
the suppliers warned us against
using them with cheap rotors,
because they are harder than the
older, metallic pads -- that’s what
makes them longer-lasting. But
rotor makers have caught up, and
we haven’t had any problems in
recent years. So as long as you’re
not buying your rotors from a guy
in a trench coat who says, “Psssst!”
I don’t think you’ll have to worry
about excessive rotor wear.
TOM: As far as we know,
however, ceramic pads do not
prevent warping. If you misuse or
overheat your brakes, rotors will
still warp. It’s possible that the
improved heat-dissipation qualities of the ceramic pads may help
prevent warping to some degree,
but you’re not going to be immune
from warped rotors.
RAY: You will be immune
from black brake dust and earsplitting brake squeal, though. So
congratulations on a wise purchase, Jared.

The Talk”

“I think, at a child’s birth, if a mother
could ask a fairy godmother to endow it with
the most useful gift, that gift should be curiosity.” -- Eleanor Roosevelt
• • • • • • • • •
A mother explains the birds
& the bees to her young son
• • • • • • • • •
Recently when my 8-year-old son Tyler asked
me how babies were made, I did what I’d promised myself I’d never do: I ignored his question.
I really didn’t want to tell him this young.
Then again, I’d rather he hear it from me than
another kid. But how do you delicately give them
the information they want without overwhelming
them with too much? I really didn’t know. I was
Tyler’s age when I went to my mom with the
very same question, and I distinctly remember
bellowing, “THAT IS DISGUSTING!”
Still, though, my mom hadn’t avoided my
question, and that really counted for something.
That’s the kind of relationship we had, and have,
and I want to have that with Tyler, too. I want
him to feel he can come to me with anything at
any time. So I revisited the topic with him a few
days later, asking if he still wanted to know.
“Yes,” he said. “I mean, do you just get
lucky? Is that how you have a baby?”
Oh, that was my golden opportunity. I should
have just ended it there and said, “Yes,” adding
a disclaimer, “the guy gets lucky, and the girl
gets pregnant.” But I figured that was cheating
and not really in the spirit of what I was trying
to accomplish. That was more in line with the
duck-and-dodge mode of parenting, which I’ve
been known to employ.
So instead I sighed and said, “Well, first, you
have a man and a woman who are married and
in love ...” Now, I know this isn’t always true,
but I really wasn’t up for explaining all the variations that can make up a family. “Mom, I know
that! I mean, how are they made?”
At that point I decided it would be a good
idea to borrow a line from one of the websites
I’d Googled after he asked me the question
the first time. “Well, the man gives love to the
woman, and then a baby grows in her belly, and
it comes out when it’s ready.”
Even to me it sounded vague and confusing.
“What? But how? I don’t get it.”
Tyler wasn’t going to let me off the hook.
So, finally, I just told him the real deal, plain and
simple, careful not to give too much information, but using the correct terms.
Silence.
“I know it’s confusing and it may sound weird,
but it’s a very beautiful thing,” I added hopefully.
Tyler looked dubious.
“Are you confused?” I asked him.
“I don’t know. But I know one thing.”
“What’s that?”
“Now I really don’t want to get married!”
I guess you could say mission not accomplished. Back to the drawing board and, maybe,
the library.

BUILDING MATERIALS By Ellie Kush
Happy Birthday: Face the facts. You must recognize and deal with pending problems before you can
move forward. Personal and professional partnerships will
need an adjustment in order to keep things moving along
smoothly. Communication won’t always be peaceful, but
it will be necessary to reach your goals. Nurture important relationships and walk away from people holding you
back. Your numbers are 5, 11, 16, 22, 29, 32, 45.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Look over your personal papers and get a clear view of your financial
situation before you pledge to donate or participate
in a joint venture. Deception is apparent at an emotional level and making an impulsive move is likely to
be costly. ✸✸✸
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Show the way you feel
by doing something nice for someone you love. Sign
up for a course that will help you push your way to
advancement. Any improvements you can make personally or professionally will pay off. ✸✸✸
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): It will be difficult to get
a clear picture of a situation you face at work. Rumors
will not lead to a wise choice. Rely on facts and firsthand information to guide you. Don’t let uncertainty
lead to impulse. ✸✸✸
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take the initiative and
do whatever it takes to make a difference. Suggesting
plans that will bring you closer to a friend, lover or your
children will enhance your relationships and ease your
stress. Your intuition will not lead you astray. ✸✸✸✸✸
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Tread carefully when
dealing with personal and professional matters.
Someone you least expect may try to stand in your
way. Use your intelligence and charm to bypass any
snag you come up against. A positive change will
make a difference. ✸✸✸✸✸
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Get involved and be a
participant. You will pick up valuable information that
can shape your future through the connections you
make and the ideas you come across. Love is in the
stars, and celebrations will bring you greater personal
strength. ✸✸
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t hesitate to change
your mind or head in a different direction. Standing by
your needs and reaching out for your goals will ensure
that you reach a satisfactory destination. Don’t fold
under pressure. Conservative financial moves are
favored. ✸✸✸✸
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Let your intuition guide you when dealing with relationship and
domestic situations. Personal gains can be made
through the partnerships you form. A serious move to
enhance your position will pay off. Self-improvement
is apparent. Romance is in the stars. ✸✸✸
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your changeable attitude may confuse others, but as long as you
are honest regarding your intentions and plans you
can move along without regret or worry. A partnership will offer something you cannot refuse. Take a
leap of faith. ✸✸✸
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Spending time
at home or doing things with family or close friends
will open your eyes to new possibilities that can ease
stress and give you something to look forward to.
Don’t fight someone trying to improve your life. Offer
assistance, not resistance. ✸✸✸✸
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Stick close to home
and do your own thing. Too much travel or communication will get you into trouble. Delays and misunderstandings are apparent and should be avoided. Focus on ways
to up your earning potential and invest your cash. ✸✸
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Rethink your past.
Reaching out to someone you haven’t seen in a long
time will help you come to terms with how you can
turn a negative in your life into a positive. Strive for
equality, security and stabilization. Romance is highlighted. ✸✸✸✸✸
Birthday Baby: You are strong-willed and
determined. You are serious-minded and strategic.
Dear Abby

TEENAGER’S DATING GAME PLAN BEGINS WITH PROVING MATURITY
DEAR ABBY: I am a 13-year-old girl and my parents won’t let me date. I believe I am mature for my
age and won’t do anything foolish. I don’t know why
my parents are being like this. Please give me some
advice on how to persuade them. -- REALLY READY
IN NEW HAMPSHIRE
DEAR REALLY READY: Although you think you
are ready to start dating, your parents will have to
make the ultimate decision on when you enter the
“dating game.” Their decision will most likely be
based on whether you have demonstrated the
beginnings of emotional maturity.
Here’s how: You need to have proven to them
you can handle responsibility, carry out school
assignments and chores, be honest with them and
keep your word. It will also depend upon whether
they know the boy in question, and whether HE is
responsible enough to be trusted with their most
precious possession, which is you.
• • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
DEAR ABBY: I have been married for 27 years
to a man who is a church pastor. We have had to
move every six to eight years, partly because he
was repeatedly unfaithful. We have gone through his
alcoholism, gambling and womanizing, and my two
suicide attempts. We have been trying to work things
out, but I suspect that he’s back to his old ways.
I work part-time, but haven’t been able to find
a full-time job after our most recent move, so I am
financially dependent on him. I have two adult children who don’t live near me. Most of the people I
know are through the church, and they are all great
supporters of my husband.
I feel trapped, and I don’t know how to fix my
life at this point. Have you any suggestions? -TRAPPED ON THE EAST COAST
DEAR TRAPPED: You will have to do it in stages.
The first should be to talk with a licensed therapist
who is not associated with the church. It will help
you to clarify your thinking and become more emotionally stabilized.
Next, continue looking for full-time employment.
If necessary, start by volunteering. It will help to
widen your circle of acquaintances and perhaps lead
to a job. Then, once you are feeling better about
yourself, you will be better able to decide what to do
about your unhappy marriage.

DEAR ABBY: After being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis last year, I moved 900 miles from
home. Shortly after the move, my dog had to be put
to sleep. Because of all the stress, my M.S. flared up
and I was admitted to the hospital. After my third
day there I was lonely, so I went to the gift shop (the
Pink Smock) and bought myself some pretty flowers
and knick-knacks as a pick-me-up. While I was
paying for them, the ladies behind the counter asked
me if I needed a card for the flowers. I explained I
was buying them for myself because I was alone.
After I returned to my room, about an hour later
more flowers arrived. I thought my mom had sent
them to me from afar. The card read: “Feel Better
Soon! From the Ladies at the Pink Smock.”
Abby, that has to be the most thoughtful thing a
stranger has ever done for me, and I wanted to share
it. I am so touched! -- RACHEL IN SANFORD, N.C.
DEAR RACHEL: Your letter is an example of
what strong medicine an act of kindness can be. I
don’t know which hospital the Pink Smock is in, but
whoever runs it should know what an asset those
caring women in the gift shop are. Kudos to them,
and I hope you are doing much better now.
