a second theft, according to Sgt.

The suspect directed the offi-

where they found a 2003 Dodge

bed, plus a trailer with three
more ofthe vehicles.
The driver's side window had
been broken, presumably using
a concrete statue found nearby,
and the ignition was damaged in
an apparent attempt to hot wire
the vehicle. While talking with
the owner of the truck, police
were advised that another call
came in reporting a stolen Polans

mer Jacquelne Bulant. "I don't
remember what we had to eat,
but I do remember lots of radish-

to coummnurate."
Before the war, the young Jac-
quelne had become a level two
seamstress (sort of lihke playing
second violin in an orchestra)
and landed a position workulng
for Ellen Ruff, one of Pas' ma
jor fashion houses. The talented
seamstress sewed garments for
such high profile clients as the
Duchess of Windsor. Her world
changed drastically when the
German occupation of Pans be-
gann 1940.
Her parents, Yolande and An-
dre Bulant, hadboth survived the
First World War. Afraid of what
conditions would be like, Mrs.
Bulant took her children and
fled into the countryside where
they hid for four months, often


tank during the Battle of the
Bulge, Donald had not had much
time to think about writing his
French girl. But he certainly had
not forgotten her.
When the promised letter fi-
nally arrived, Jacqueline's moth
er had to locate a friend who
could read English.
Letters then began to arnve
frequently, sometimes two in
one day. Through their letters,
the shy American soldier and the
beautiful French seamstress fell
in love.
Exactly one year to the day
they first met, the two were
umnted when Donald returned to
Pans for a week's furlough. He
gave her flowers and the promise
of a rmg. She understood that she
mustbe patient. He would return
to America soon and then send
for her when he could.
Things began to return to
normal in Pans. Businesses and
schools reopened. Jacquehne

Never before had she seen him
in civilian clothes. They went for
a meal, to the movies, for a walk
and then to a hotel. He kissed
her good night at the door of
her room and then left. The next
morning, the couple boarded a
bus bound for Tampa.
Much later, Jacqueline would
learn that Donald only had

Guy Ambrose can be found
working out at the Baker Coun-
tyYMCA most Mondays and
throughout the week as his job
schedule at Northeast Florida
State Hospital permits.
Despite being a nurse at the
facility and his former career as
an Army medical technimcan, the
56-year-old Baldwin resident
wasn't paying much attention to
his health and fitness until this
year.
By his own admission, he'd
become a couch potato since


started getting after me to do
something about it," said Mr.
Ambrose.
That led him to enroll in Get
Fit, Stay Fit, the YMCA's 12-week
program designed for people at
any level of fitness, last January.
He completed the program and
has continued working out regu-
larly.
Awareness of men's health,
and success stories like those of
Mr. Ambrose, is what National
Men's Health Month each June
is all about. It was established to
heighten the awareness of pre-
ventable health problems and
encourage early detection and


treatment of disease among men
and boys. National Men's Health
Week, June 15-21, was also ob
servedthis month in conjunction
with Father's Day.

century, women lived, on aver

In 2003, then Governor Jeb
Bush recognized the need for men
to become more engaged with the

high points of the proclamation
read as follows:

Women visit their doctors

Men who are educated about
the value of preventive health
will be more likely to participate
in health screening.

leading rolls. Current Baker
P-i.}l -tl -]nt- anT "!r- l

Washburn, Ashleigh Thick
and Savanna Jones also have
important roles.
The classic comedy is cur-
rently in revival on Broadway
and is the story of a bunch
of gamblers trying to find a
place to have their dice game.
Nathan Detroit (Orberg) is
trying to avoid police Inspec-
tor Brannigan (Blackmon),
while he and his friend Benny
Southstreet (Gerard) tryto lo-
cate a place for the game. His
girlfriend Adelaide (Nichols)


is frustratedwith his gambling
and wants him to settle down
and marry her.
The musical is full of great
songs that have become
Broadway standards. Guys
and Dolls, Sit Down You're
Rocking the Boat, Luck Be a
Lady and Bushel and a Peck
are all part of the Broadway
lexicon.
The show is full of singing
and dancing and the cast of
20 has been rehearsing hard
to bring it to the LCCC stage.
Guys and Dolls is directed by
BCHS director Bob Gerard.
Tickets are $7 and $5 and are
on sale at the door.
