Mr. Miller was a wonderful and gifted teacher, and his life will live on in the hearts of many of his students.Our physics class was immediately after lunch, which he often referred to as the "sleepy hours," but his good humor and excellent teaching skills managed to keep us awake, and make us enjoy learning.

Since it's now settled that the Ravens won't be going to the Super Bowl, only one really important question remains for fans who will be watching the game at home: What are you going to eat? Those inclined to get in the spirit of the game might pay homage to the Super Bowl's host city, New Orleans, by cooking jambalaya or shrimp creole. There're the old favorites like buffalo wings, hamburgers, hot dogs and chili to consider. And then there's pizza. After a few beers, the idea of picking up the phone and having someone deliver your dinner sounds appealing.

She may not have known how to say "pizza" in Spanish, but 18-year-old Kate Tyson certainly knew how to say "$1,000 scholarship." "Oh, my God!" she screamed yesterday when a pizza deliveryman walked into her Spanish 6 class and, after announcing that he had a delivery for the Howard High School senior, opened a pizza box with a check for $1,000 inside. Then, Tyson cried - in between bites of cheese pizza - as her classmates were treated to a free pizza party in her honor. Tyson is one of 40 students in the Baltimore area to be awarded $1,000 college scholarships from the Papa John's pizza chain for good grades, community involvement, leadership, character and overcoming obstacles.

The pizza delivery rush usually begins about 4 p.m., just before rush-hour commuters make their slow crawl home and night falls on the suburbs.For delivery drivers, the early hours are the calm before the storm, when running steaming hot pizza pies -- and Chinese food and fried chicken -- goes at breakneck speed until well after midnight.But delivery drivers in Howard County have to contend with something besides bad weather and stingy tippers.Last week, Martha Lunsford, 30, a Papa John's driver, was shot in the jaw at point-blank range in the parking lot of an apartment complex on Turnabout Lane in Columbia's Harper's Choice village after she was robbed of $20.Delivering pizzas has gotten scary, said Jeff Benson, 20, a driver for Domino's Pizza in Columbia.
