It's a new day in the Sunday comics. Last month, we asked readers to vote to help us make long-anticipated changes in our daily and Sunday comics lineups. Thousands wrote or e-mailed to tell us which existing strips and panels were their favorites, and also to vote on several new comics we were considering adding. The result, in part, can be seen today in the Comics section, where some old strips have been retired and five popular new strips have been added. Along with old favorites like For Better or For Worse, Doonesbury, Dilbert and Peanuts, The Sun will now offer Foxtrot, Get Fuzzy, Pearls Before Swine, Speed Bump and Zits for your reading pleasure.

Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff have the foxtrot for tonight's "Best Year of Your Life" theme.  I'd say it's pretty darn hard to top the year he's having THIS year. Can they foxtrot to Fatboy Slim's "Right Here Right Now"? He says 2012 was the best year of his life not just because of the Super Bowl but also because his son was born. He says he always wanted his child to be proud of him. Jacoby says his own father left when he was only 2 years old and that if his dad walked into the studio right now, he wouldn't know what he looked like.

Eighteen months after Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake voted to approve the purchase of four new helicopters for the Police Department, her proposed budget called for grounding one of them in a cost-saving move. But within days, the administration reversed course and said Thursday it intends to keep all four choppers flying in the unit known as Foxtrot. Police likely will have to find the projected $1 million in savings elsewhere in their budget. It is unclear how the cut became part of the proposed budget, which was unveiled last week.

Hello, F Minus. Goodbye, FoxTrot. A new comic strip - F Minus - makes its debut in The Sun today. Tony Carrillo's off-kilter look at everyday life is replacing FoxTrot Monday through Saturday. (Bill Amend, FoxTrot's creator, recently announced that his strip will run only on Sundays, allowing him time to pursue other interests.) "It's dry, a little bit deadpan, kind of sarcastic," Carrillo, 25, says of his strip, which today appears on Page 6C. "I try to stay away from precious moments.

Tom tells us this is the "best of the best" coming back -- if that were true we wouldn't have anybody that finished lower than first or second on here. Hmph. Staircase introductions -- first impressions -- Sabrina Bryan has what Tom & Lorenzo refer to as "babyheads" coming out of the top of her costume.  And Tristan either has really weird chest hair growth patterns or ticked off his waxer. Tom tells us 11 of these dancers have made the finals -- so who are the also-rans also being allowed to compete?

Chris Mayne is almost as surprised as his partner, Sarah Jones, at how smoothly they're moving with this ballroom dancing thing. Mayne, 17, is the giddy one as he extends his arm while Jones, 15, firmly grasps his hand and as gracefully as possible spins away from him. "We're good," Mayne, a senior, announced over the music, chatter and laughter filling the cafeteria at Winters Mill High in Westminster. "I'm so proud of myself," Jones, a junior, said as Mayne reeled her back in. It appears the two were born for swing dancing.

A Baltimore Police Department's helicopter made an emergency landing in Reedbird Park Friday night after facing technical difficulties, police said. No one was injured in the landing, which was made as a precautionary measure, according to police spokesman Det. Vernon Davis. No details were immediately available about what caused the incident. The helicopter was able to fly back to its helipad shortly after making the landing, Davis said. The Baltimore police aviation unit, which is known as Foxtrot, got four new helicopters with better surveillance tools last year . iduncan@baltsun.com twitter.com/iduncan

Chuck Russo's Il Villano had it all his own way in the six-furlong, $100,000 Dave's Friend Stakes, the co-feature Saturday afternoon at Laurel Park. Sent out to spar for the lead under Kendrick Carmouche for trainer Susan Crowell, the 3-year-old quickly emerged with the lead and went on to beat five of his elders by three lengths in 1 minute, 11.20 seconds over the sloppy track. Immortal Eyes nipped Wolfcamp to finish second. "He seemed to like the slop," Carmouche said. "He broke well and wanted to go. " In his only other start at Laurel, Il Villano missed winning the Frank J. DeFrancis Memorial Dash on Oct. 27 by a nose to multiple stakes winner Action Andy.

The girl stormed off the dance floor, her body language the universal for "I'm outta here." Her partner was left standing alone, his shoulders shrugging in the universal for "What did I do?" Ah, the drama, the intrigue, the stomped toes. It's one of those ideas that seem like either pure genius or total insanity, and turn out to be a good bit of both: Take the mannered world of ballroom dancing, plant it in the hormonally fraught setting of the typical middle school. Moviegoers first saw the results of this odd coupling several years ago, in the hit documentary Mad Hot Ballroom, which followed several New York City schools as they fielded ballroom dancing teams to compete for the top prize.
