By BARRY WILNER AP Football Writer HONOLULU -- Adrian Peterson stood in front of the car he'd just won as MVP of the Pro Bowl.

Another reader expresses disappointment (02/10/08)
To the Editor: I would like to talk about the food pantry. The people who work there are rude and disrespectful to the people that just come in there for help. They act like they are better than you just because you might need a little help. They will take things out of your hands if they think you have too much. And the way I see it, those things are there for those people who need them. And they should at least treat people with self-respect like they deserve...
