The feelings of an artist often are reflected in his work, and that may explain why most of Vance Johnson's recent drawings have had bold strokes in harsh colors and brooding women as the subjects. Johnson, the wide receiver for the Denver Broncos who moonlights as a starving artist, said that since he didn't feel at all happy for the last few weeks, he certainly didn't want anything smiling back at him from the canvas. Paint it black, as Mick Jagger sings.

The balloons and flowers that filled Room 315 of St. Luke's Hospital were nice, but for the head Amigo it wasn't like Mile High Stadium, where confetti rained down against the background of a cobalt blue sky and orange-colored Broncomania. Vance Johnson desperately wanted to be there. "I was sitting up here in the hospital bed going crazy," Johnson said by phone after the Broncos' wildly emotional 38-33 AFC championship win over the Cleveland Browns Sunday.

John Elway got his first Kingdome victory since 1989 on Sunday, with a lot of help from the Denver Broncos' defense. The Broncos forced Seattle's Rick Tuten to punt a club-record 12 times and Elway passed for one touchdown and directed Denver to a second in a 17-9 victory. It also was Denver's first two-game sweep over the Seahawks since 1989. The Broncos beat Seattle, 28-17, at Denver on Oct. 31.

Denver wide receiver Vance Johnson says Raider cornerback Lester Hayes tried to "gouge out" his eyes early in the Broncos' 38-36 victory Sunday at Mile High Stadium. But Hayes denies the allegation. "I did not go for his eyes," Hayes said. "I was actually trying to get a speck of dust off his eyebrow." Johnson said Hayes nearly blinded him, which he said was more upsetting than the knee injury he suffered later in the game that will put him out for six weeks.

Broncos wide receiver Vance Johnson walked out of training camp Monday, apparently as a result of a salary dispute. However, he was back at camp this morning. He refused to talk to the media but did not practice because of a pulled hamstring. "It's hard for me to speculate on what happened," said interim Head Coach Wade Phillips, who said Johnson will be fined. "He wasn't here, and he didn't talk to me. It's an unexcused absence."

Recently, volunteers from the local ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints gave a helping hand to one of our longtime Fillmore residents, Daisy Sanderson. These folks swarmed over the Santa Clara Street property and trimmed, hauled, painted, and generally made short work of a tricky cleanup job. I would like them to know that we here at the city of Fillmore appreciate their efforts and the efforts of Steve McKinnon who put this project together. This is the direction that we would like to go eventually with the Redevelopment Agency's Housing Rehabilitation Program.
