In his day, former NFL linebacker Bill Romanowski did some pretty volatile and nasty stuff, like spiting in J.J. Stokes’ face and viciously beating up a teammate. But he made it clear he did not threaten to end former receiver Cris Carter’s career, as the former wide receiver claimed on Tuesday.“It is absolute fiction,” Romanowski said on the Dan Patrick Show Wednesday. “If he could read my mind in pre-game, yeah, maybe he had it right. But I didn’t talk before games. I was in the zone.”On ESPN radio’s Hill and Schlereth show, Carter said he had approached his offensive lineman to offer a bounty on opposing players, including Romanowski, who he said told him, “Carter, I’m gonna end your career” during pregame when he played for Minnesota and Romo for Denver.“I’m guilty of it,” Carter said. “It’s the first time I’ve ever admitted it, but I put a bounty on guys before. And the guys tried to take me out, a guy tried to take a cheap shot on me, I put a bounty on him, right now.”Said Romanowski: “If he put a bounty on me, it wasn’t very good because it didn’t work,” Romanowski said. “I just think this is his way of trying to make himself relevant for what is going on now.”

Commander Defence Force, Commodore Tellis Bethel threw the first pitch and commended organizers and participants alike, wishing the best team would truly emerge victorious.The Able Seaman and the Senior Rates were the last two teams standing by the day’s end, and youth won over experience in the final minutes as the Able Seamen plundered on, taking no prisoners with a final score of 12 to 0! Members were very pleased at the return of the sporting events and look forward to Flag Football later next month.Release: RBDF
Recovery from devastating flooding at Offutt Air Force Base, Neb., is now under way as waters are slowly receding following days of the Missouri River surging.During the worst of the flooding, portions of the base were overwhelmed, despite round-the-clock sandbagging by airmen and others, though the headquarters of the U.S. Strategic Command was not damaged, according to an Associated Press article.“In the end, obviously, the waters were just too much. It took everything we put up,” Col. David Norton, who is in charge of facilities at the base, told the AP.Air Force officials said the Strategic Command headquarters remained safe because it is on a hill.“[Strategic Command] was sited in an area that was going to be dry in even the most catastrophic floods, and it’s dry now,” Jon Henderson, assistant secretary of the Air Force for installations, environment and energy, told On Base and other media outlets Friday. “The building is F5 tornado-proof. The building is built with the size of the conditions of the area.”The flooding has renewed concerns of installation resiliency in dealing with extreme weather events.A recent DOD report detailed that climate change poses a threat to more than two-thirds of mission-critical military installations in the U.S. The report considered the long-term effects of flooding, drought, wildfires and other natural events at 79 installations in the Army, Air Force and Navy, as On Base reported. The White House has played down the report, even as some Democrats said it wasn’t detailed enough.Air Force photo by Tech Sgt. Rachelle Blake ADC AUTHOR
