CT scan revealed a tumor on
her brain stem. She was
immediately flown to Shands

later she underwent an eight-
hour surgery to remove the
tennis-ball-sized tumor. It was
diagnosed as anaplastic
ependymona. Following the
surgery and a variety of
setbacks, Jordan remained in
the pediatric intensive care unit

85-plus expected out
Spring's in air
for new coach
It could get a little crowded
on the Taylor County High
practice field this week.
New Taylor County High
football Coach Shane Boggs
said he expects 85 to 95 players
to show up for spring football
practice when it gets underway
this Friday at 3:15 p.m.
That would be the largest
turnout in recent memory.
Boggs also expects 30 of
those to be rising 12th graders,
up from nine seniors on the
Bulldogs' roster at the end of
"I am excited about the
number of players that have
expressed an interest," Boggs
"Boggs accepted the Taylor
County job in February after a
successful stint at Brookwood
School in Thomasville, Ga. His
2007 squad went a perfect 13-0
to capture the AA State title. His
team went 9-4 in 2006 and 6-5
this past season.
But now his job is to beef up
the Bulldog football program
which has not produced a
winning season since going
13-2 and winning the state
championship in 1997.
. "Our goal for the spring is for
everyone involved to focus on
two things -- attitude and work
ethic. These are things that we
all have total control over and
they are critical to success in all
aspects of life," the coach said.
Boggs' schedule has the
Bulldogs working out each
afternoon after school from 3:15
until 5:45. There will be short
one-hour session this Saturday
beginning at 9 a.m.
The team w i 1 put on full pads
for the first time on Tuesday.
The Bulldogs will play their
annual Orange-Blue intra-
squad game on Friday, May 15.
Spring practice will culminate
on Saturday, May 23 at 6 p.m.
when Indian Rocks School of
Largo comes to town for the
annual spring jamboree.
Boggs said finding a quality
opponent for the jamboree was
tough but he was able to secure
Indian Rocks a few weeks
Indian Rocks, a Class 1A
school, has made it to the state
playoffs the past two seasons,
compiling a 9-1 record last year
and a 7-3 mark in 2007.
The Bulldogs will be
competing in Class 2B this
fall, just one classification
higher than Indian Rocks. The
Bulldogs' district schedule
includes Union County, Fort
White and Florida High.
Long-time nemesis Madison
will be competing in a higher
classification in 2009.
Boggs said much of the
work to be done over the next
few weeks will be to work on
fundamentals and install the
spread gun offense and 50
"I am confident in the plan we
have for installation and expect
to see progress each day," he

"We have seen improvement
in the weight room and in the
classroom over the last month.

When the sun puts its rays to bed, and
the wind begins to blow, I rush upstairs
to open the bedroom windows.
And breathe deeply.
I love sleeping with the windows
open, and being able to do so is a
great advantage of a two-story house.
If your windows are too close, to the
ground, there are security issues. But
if your bedroom windows are 12 feet
high, you're probably safe unless some
cropduster flies too low.
Of course, there's a short "window"
for this enjoyment of windows. Pretty
soon, it will be too hot to sleep without
air conditioning. But in the transition,
while the nighttime temperatures tread
time in the mid-50s, I'm opening my
And listening to the birds, for they
are singing their hearts out and deserve
This morning, Iawaikenecdto a musical
rourid by four different birds. Each was
actually singing a different tune, and
yet it all worked out harmoniously as if
it had been orchestrated that way.
I was barely awake, yet I was
astounded. It seems to me that birds
start the day off happy, which makes
'them unique among the other living
creatures I know. Given the mornings
I've been enduring, I may build myself
a nest and live in a tree. But I can't
imagine what I'd sing at 6:30 a.m.
As I listened to the birds, I thought of
my father who believed that for a day to
go well, you should get up long before
the sun does and be prepared for it. He
was bathed and shaved before dawn,
with morning newspaper and coffee
in hand. And he often sat outside, as
the sun rose behind our house, topping
the tall pine trees and backlighting the
landscape. There before him were birds,
plenty of birds. Song birds. Cardinals'.
Mockingbirds. Blue birds. Blue jays.
Prissy wrens. Flashy woodpeckers.
Although impressed by the avian
show, I think what my father liked most
about the morning was the quiet. Once
the two women at his house emerged
from their bedrooms, quiet was scarce.
So he not only got up early to meet the
sun, but to brace himself for whatever
the family or the office had in store for
And even though I suspect he didn't
want company at the earliest hours of
the day, he often suggested that we
should make a point to occasionally see
the sun rise.
"I've seen the sun rise," said Mother,
refusing his invitation.
"I haven't," I said.
They both looked at me and then
each other. Mother asked, "You've
never seen the sun rise?"
"No, but I've seen plenty of sunsets,"
I gave as my defense. "It's just the
flipside of a sunset," I suggested, and
they shook their heads at their teenage
"I can't believe you've lived this long
and never seen a sunrise," my father
said, definitely disappointed.
By SUSAN H. LINCOLN
"I will," I said confidently, for I knew
it would eventually be required.
The first sunrise I recall, however,
was not required. It was optional. I
was with a group of friends at a then-
nondescript beach in Florida, called
Navarre. No one had heard of it until
the 70s when "Jaws" was filmed off
the coastline. Until then, Navarre
was nothing more than a handful of
houses--one of which belonged to a
friend's family. Every summer, 10 of
us made a pilgrimage to that beach
under the watchful eyes of the parents-
What fun we had. One of our really
fun friends suggested that on the final
night of our stay, we should sleep on
the beach so we could-wake up to the

a remote beach, you see, and nobody
killed anybody then without a good
Shortly after midnight, we packed our
towels and blankets, and trekked over
the dunes to prepare for the sunrise.
I don't remember falling asleep until
someone woke me up to say that the
sun was rising. I sat straight up and
found myself surrounded by the biggest
sun I had ever seen. It stretched from
one side of the universe to the other
without any hesitation.
I blinked and watched the sun take
possession of the water and the beach,
splashing new colors on both. It was
beautiful. It was breathtaking.
And then, with a suddenness which.
was disarming, the morning show
started to blend in with the clouds
and the sky, as the sun cast an overall
pink around us. We ate doughnuts and
drank milk, basking in the glow.
Then we had to scale those sand
dunes, drag blankets, take sheets
off beds at the beach house, pack
up groceries, clothes, 41 bottles of
shampoo and suntan lotion, and load
into a station wagon for a three-hour
drive home. We sang; we talked; it
never occurred to us to sleep.
We were individually dropped off at
our homes, with loud goodbyes and
fabulous memories. But I remember
sitting down and saying to my father, "I
think I may cry."
He looked alarmed and asked why. "I
saw the sunrise this morning," I said.
