PEOPLE BYRD Bet leads to free concert NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Country singer Tracy Byrd climbed onto a giant billboard and gave a free concert after losing a fishing bet. Byrd sang for an hour Wednesday night for a crowd of more than 1,700 people as police blocked off all but one lane of a major road. Byrd sang from a billboard featuring the cover of his new album. The "Billboard Bash" resulted after he failed to catch more fish than a local disc jockey who put up his El Camino. Some fans brought chairs or lounged in the back of pickup trucks, while others danced in the street. "We questioned it at first," said Gene Ward, assistant director of public works. "We figured it could work. Internet receives acid test ALBANY, N.Y. — Free speech on the Internet got an acid test when former Grateful Dead lyricist John Perry Barlow was asked about drugs during an online chat sponsored by a daily newspaper. Barlow, a Libertarian who is fighting efforts to limit material on the Internet, was asked if he still stood by a statement that taking LSD was the best thing he ever did. "Having kids was the best thing I ever did. Taking acid was the second best thing I ever did," said Barlow, 49. He did not say whether he still uses drugs. Barlow collaborated with Grateful Dead band members on songs from the 1970s to the late '80s. He appeared on the Web site of the Albany Times Union on Wednesday. Insults help 'shock jock' NEW YORK — Don Imus, the "shock jock" who insulted the Clintons to their faces in a dinner speech seven months ago, says the gig was good for business. "That speech turned out out to be best thing that ever happened to me," Imus said in the November issue of the TV magazine Satellite Direct. "Imagine where I'd be today if I'd said something really nasty." His syndicated "Imus in the Morning" radio show has expanded from 50 to 90 stations, giving him a daily audience estimated at 10 million, the magazine said. He is also simulcast on the new cable news channel MSNBC. Imus joked about President Clinton's alleged extramarital affairs and Hillary Rodham Clinton's financial dealings at a formal dinner on March 21.

T ADVICE Ann has formula to manage 'control freak' boss ANN LANDERS Creators Syndicate Inc. Dear Ann Landers: I recently received a nice promotion and was thrilled until I learned that I would be working under an individual who has the reputation of being a "control freak." Do you have any guidelines that might help me maintain my sanity, sense of humor and integrity? I have a lot to gain, professionally, by this move and want to make the most of it. I have, however, witnessed many competent workers reduced to tears by this individual, who seems to have a sadistic streak, especially where women are concerned. Maybe some of your readers who have experienced this challenge could offer some suggestions. Meanwhile, I would appreciate whatever ideas you have. — Nervous Nellie in New York Dear Nellie: Control freaks are tough duty, but they can be managed if you keep your blood pressure down and use your head. Here's the formula: Be sure to run everything by "C.F." (control freak) so he will know you are not trying to pull any end runs. Ask his advice frequently, and thank him profusely for his wisdom and guidance. Remember that old adage "You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar." It works. Dear Ann Landers: This is in response to "U.M., Mesa, Ariz.," who was divorcing her husband and leaving her two young children with him. She said she suffered from depression and could not take care of the kids emotionally or financially. Leaving them with her ex-husband, she said, would be best for all concerned. She f was, however, worried about what others would think. I was married at the age of 15 and divorced at 27. We have two sons who are now 14 and 16. When I became so unhappy that I couldn't get out of bed in the morning, I sought professional help. The diagnosis was major depression. My husband said it was all in my head. I put up a good front in public, but behind closed doors, I was miserable. People thought I had everything — beautiful children, a lovely home, two cars. Little did they know. I finally left my husband and took my children, but it was a never-ending struggle. I agreed to joint custody, which was the smartest thing I've ever done. We now spend every weekend and holiday together as a family, and the children have their own rooms in both their father's house and mine. I am on medication for depression, thanks to an excellent doctor, and am now able to live a real life. Tell "Mesa" she will have to face a lot of criticism, but she must ignore the detractors. She owes them noth- ing. Caution her against spoiling her children in an attempt to compensate for the fact that the family is not like everyone else's. Let her know she is not alone. — Been There in Danville, 111. Dear Dan: Congratulations for getting the help you needed and having the courage to do what was best for your children. I hope "Mesa" sees your letter and takes your advice. I love the way my readers help one another. Thank you. Gem of the Day (Credit Roger Pond): There is no such thing as a six-or seven-person "family tent." Just try putting two adults and five kids in a tent and see what kind of family you've got when morning comes. Rest assured, anybody who has that many kids didn't get them by sleeping in a tent with six or seven people."
