Road Department Director

Too often trash bags aren't se-

Spate of recent celebrity



deaths marks end of eras


It's been a bad week for celeb-
nties and minor celebrities.
First, Ed McMahon dies after
a long illness, then Farrah Faw-
celt succumbs to cancer.
Then the shocker hits with
Michael Jackson dead of a heart
attack. Finally, pitchman Billy
Mays drops dead.
Mays aside, with the death of
McMahon, Fawcett and Jackson
it's like the official end of the Sev
entries and Eighties for me.
Growngup, EdMcMahon was
a staple of my television viewing
life. My parents watched the To-
night Show with Johnny Carson
every night at 11:30. In the sev-
enties when I was old enough to
watch with them, McMahon was
always there to set up Carson's
jokes.
If Carson was the master of
the punch line, McMahon was
the king of straight men. Nobody
could set up a joke better or re-
spond more enthusiastically that
Ed. He even had his own signa-
ture sound HeyYooo!!
As one of the NPR commen-
tators said about McMahon, the

a hero was having a sidekick like

blown-back hair once described
as the "falling out of an airplane"
look, was the sex symbol of the
late Seventies. It's hard to believe
that she was only on Charlie's
Angels for one season, because
she defined that show and what
it meant to be a clean scrubbed
pinup.
Her courageous battle against
cancer brought her back mto the
public eye. But to all of us of a
certain age, she'll always be the
beauty in the red smnsuit.
As for Michael Jackson, he
was the soundthat defined a gen
ration. Like so many stars, his
off stage life couldn't stand up to
his celebrity, but it was lSs music
that counnted.
t owned the first Jackson 5
hit Want You Back" and sang
along in falsetto to the45. Later, I
purchasedThnller lkejust about
every one else in the world, and
thought it was the coolest video
ever. In fact, I am probably not
alone believing Thriller is what
cemented MTV's place in the en
tertamlmentworld.
I scratched my head in confu
sion as Jackson tried to bleach
away his ethnicity and turned his
face into a cosmetic surgeryprov
mng ground, but that didn't stop
wife Kelley and me from buying
tickets to the Victory Tour when
it came tothe Gator Bowl. In fact,
I even admit to owning a pair of
red parachute pants.


Jackson's music transcends
generations. My sons love Thrill-
er and son Dylan's band has even
used "Beat It" for sound checks
before some shows. The crowd al-
ways cheers in recognition when
the first few notes nng out.
As odd a character as he was
in real life, I'm happy that his
music wall nse beyond that and
continue down the years.
It's time to root around in the
attic to try to find my old LP of
Thriller.
I remember once ashkng my
Dad why Ed McMahon was
famous. After all, I asked, he
doesn't really have a talent, does
he? Dad replied that he was just
famous for being Ed McMahon.
Billy Mays was the same way.
If you played a tape of that irntat
eng voice or showed a picture of
that thick bearded face, he was
instantly recognizable. Besides
Oxyclean, I can't remember half
the stuff he pitched, but he'd
made himself famous doing it.

and according to Road Department Director
Robert Fletcher, the benefits of the material
known as EZBase out weigh its shortfalls.
The JEA by-product composed of ash,


nine more EZBase road segments about to
be paved should fare better for a number of
reasons.




surface on the new roads, saidMr. Fletcher.
Lighter traffic and better drainage means
less moisture that can raise the EZBase and
cause it to move as vehicles move overit. That
slippage is what leads to cracks in the asphalt,
which are beginning to appear n certain spots
on Claude Harvey after only one year.
But neither Claude Harvey nor the nine
roads for which county commissioners com-
mitted $316, ooo in early June to pave, were
properly prepared for such work before the
EZBase was applied.
"It was never intended to be paved over,"
Mr. Fletcher said of Claude Harvey. "We used
the EZBase for stabilization ... It was one of
our worst nightmares as far as maintenance."
When paving is anticipated, preparations

Telford Hotel in


White Springs is

KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES

At the turn of the 20th centu-
ry, White Springs, Flonda was a
bustling community with a thrive
ing tounsm industry driven by
the renowned healing quality of
the area's sulfur springs.
Of the 15 hotels that accom-
modated an endless parade of
out of town guests, many of then
famous personalities like Presi
dent Franklin Roosevelt, only
one remains.
Today, the Telford Hotel, an

bnck, still graces River Street in
downtown White Springs. Its
handsome facade is capped with

elements.
The hotel stands regally among
huge oaks draped with graceful
swaths of Spanish moss like an

hospitality
One wouldn't be at all sur
prised if Scarlett O'Hara came

staircase and through the front
door, her hoop skirts flouncing as
she stepped into a horse-drawn
carnage.
The hotel now operates as a
bed and breakfast and offers an

The hotel's lobby and
adjoining meeting rooms
feature a beautifully
preserved original wood
floor, period and repro-
duction furnishings and

can still be seenin nthe
dining rooms. The rooms
are utilized for busi-
ness meetings, wedding
showers, birthday and
anniversary celebrations.
During the fall, winter
and spring, patrons are
treated once a month to
live folk music.
The highlight, of
course, is the restaurant.

through the large bank
of windows along one
side allow glimpses of the

The Florida Wildlife Commis-

later in hopes that the Good Sa
maritan will comeforward. Since
many Baker County residents
attend Lake City Community
College where the incident took
place, FWC alerted local media.
According to the game agency,
Richard McGlew, 42, was seated

behind and grabbed his pant leg.
Mr. McGlew seizedthefox bythe
tail, and was bitten on the hand.
The second man is believed
to be another student who used
a pocket knife to cut the animal's
throat before it ran into nearby
bushes, where it was later found

The fox is being tested for ra-

Anyone with information
