threaten to compromise the city
of Jacksonville Beach's recent
positive momentum.
. That was the assessment City
Manager George Forbes offered
while speaking to members of
the Beaches Business Association
"I don't know what more we
can be doing than we're already
doing to keep the city together,"
Forbes said. "Years ago some
thought the city was not such a
nice place to live. We've put in a
lot of effort to change that."
Forbes spoke about the tremen-
dous growth the city has already
realized as well as future changes
and their impact on the commu-

Jacksonville Beach is the largest
of the Beaches cities with shop-

amounts of recreational space
including an oceanfront park.
"I don't think there is a park in
the entire city that has not been
completely rebuilt," Forbes said.
The city is nearly rebuilt itself

The city of Atlantic Beach Monday
passed on first reading changes to its
animal control ordinance which will
make it easier for the city to collect
fees for animal control citations,
according to Public Safety Director
David Thompson.
The city has had problems in the
past collecting money from people
who did not live or have property in
the city, Thompson said, explaining
that the changes to the ordinance
give the city the authority to "pursue
getting a personal judgment against
an individual."
Also, some fines must be paid after
14 days as opposed to the previous
allotment of 30 days, or the fee will
increase, according to the proposed
ordinance changes.
A first time offense elicits a $25
citation, which will increase to $50
after a 14-day period, for example.

Mental health of homeless gets boost from hospital

To make professional mental health services avail-
able to homeless men, women and children living in
the Beaches area, Baptist Medical Center Beaches
Administrator Mark Slyter will present a $10,000
check' to The Sulzbacher Center's Director of
Behavioral Health Services tomorrow.
The services will be provided through The
Sulzbacher Center's Homeless Outreach Program
Expansion, or HOPE Team, which began operations
at the Beaches on January 22.
"As the community hospital, Baptist Beaches is
committed to continuously improving the access to
mental and physical health services," said Slyter, "We
are encouraged by this new partnership as it allows
us to treat patients proactively, where as previously
they would have delayed the search for care until it
was an emergency."
Sulzbacher Center President and CEO Audrey
McKibbin Moran said "We are very excited about the
opportunity to continue our long partnership by
working with Baptist Medical Center Beaches to

address the mental health needs of the homeless in a
constructive way."
HOPEBeaches is the newest program offered by The
Sulzbacher Center, a Jacksonville-based provider of
comprehensive services to homeless men, women
and children. Over the last seven years, the
Downtown HOPE team has made over 5,500 referrals
for homeless individuals to receive shelter, substance
abuse treatment, medical, dental, vision and psychi-
atric care. HOPEBeaches will provide the same link-
age of services for the homeless population at the
beach.,The ultimate goal of this program is to move
individuals into stable housing, Sulzbacher staffers
The Sulzbacher Center's expansion to the Beaches
was funded by a $200,000 grant by Bank of America
to The Sulzbacher Center. Beaches Emergency
Assistance Ministries (B.E.A.M.) provides office space
for the program's two full time staff members and the
cities of Jacksonville, Atlantic and Neptune Beach
have all contributed to a new van dedicated to the
HOPEBeaches program.

Helping seniors get hired

Sharon Gartshore could not find a job -
even though she was qualified and was
becoming desperate and depressed.
At 61, Gartshore wanted to keep working,
but with silver-blond hair and a limp, poten-
tial employers couldn't see past her physical
appearance, she said.
But, after discovering an ad for Experience
Works, a national non-profit organization
headquartered at the Beaches and dedicated
to training and finding employment for low-
income senior citizens, Gartshore was given
a new-found confidence.
"I [had] a great resume, but no one [would]
look at me," said Gartshore. "This program

She now works at one of the Experience
Works headquarters, located in Atlantic
Beach, doing clerical work. She is also the
principal point of contact for other seniors
who want to join the program.
While Gartshore works at the
Experience Works office, most employees are
placed with a "host," such as a library, where
they can receive training and learn necessary

job skills.
Participants work approximately 20 hours
per week and often rotate to different
"hosts," learning new skills along the way in
a "earn-as-you-learn" approach, Gartshore
The program, primarily subsidized through
the state, also offers resume and interviewing
tips and helps participants find classes to
update their skills; if needed, according to
Business and Community Liaison Jerry
Gartshore, for example, is taking a Spanish
class through the program because she inter-
acts with customers in Puerto Rico.
"I've got a lot of self-confidence, which I
really didn't have," she said.
To qualify for the program, a participant
must be at least a 55-year-old, unemployed
Florida resident with an annual income of
less than approximately $13,000 although
income is evaluated on a case-by-case basis,
Duewel said.
"When they come to us, they have been
rejected by a lot of other organizations," he
said, adding that the company has seen an

the Board of Directors of St.

hundreds of out-of-town

File taxes to get fed stimulus check



To the editor.
It has been reported that
_ approximately. 25 million sen-
ior Americans do not have to
file income tax forms. Correctly
so, by the way. They are below
the filing income-amount,_or.
they are only on Social Security
for their total income. The list
goes on and on. All legitimate,
by the way.
Some seniors have not had to
file for years and years. They
don't think twice about April
15. BUT this year is different. If
they don't file, even if no tax is
due because of the personal
exeniptions, standard deduc-
tions, medical expenses, mort-

gage interest, etc. they will lose
CHECK" for $1200 per couple,
$600 per individual.
They MUST file a 2007- 1040-
to get the check. Unfortunately
the IRS, the banks, and the
Treasury--Department. have
been decrepitly silent about
what is required for them to get
the money. It's really going to
hit the elders in their 80's and
90's very hard.
We have just over a month to
get the word out, or its' all over
for them.

Need to use school resources better

To the editors:
I am glad that the Duval
County School Board is meet-
ing with the community to
discuss facility planning in
our schools. The time has
come for the school district to
solve the severe inequities
that exist among our learning
This is not a situation that
is limited to the inner city.
We have Beaches schools that
are begging for enrollment.
--. -`Mayport Middle School, for
example, has an anemic stu-
dent count of approximately
650 and this ii even after
two bus loads of students are
brought in from the

Northside of Jacksonville.
In light of vacant class-
rooms and empty desks,
Duval County is paying
penalties to the state for
'overcrowded' classrooms.
The school board is justified
in making plans to use area
schools more efficiently. I
have faith that the Academic
& Community Excellence
(ACE) meetings will result in
productive solutions to have a
more equitable distribution of
students, faculty and services
throughout the county -
including the Beaches.

Make bicyclists use lights in the dark

To the editor:
During the dark morning
hours this time of year when
you put your recycling out,
you make a bet that you will
not be run down by a speed-
ing bicycle. Along Florida
Boulevard the truck comes
along at or before 7 a.m. and
the bins must be out before
he comes. At that time of the
morning, every recycling

To the editor:
As an older retired veteran, I
have always held my country's
leaders and flag in high esteem
--as-the emblems of our great
country. True, during some of
the presidential elections, I felt
like I was voting for the least
.of-two evils. Bit my'respeet.-
and pride for our American
flag never wavered. I am now
totally disgusted that the
Americanf public w6uld even-
consider, much less make
viable with their support and
vote, any candidate for presi-
dent of the United States who
shows no respect for our coun-
try's flag.

morning, I encounter bicycles
without lights. You cannot
see them coming and they
cannot see you crossing the

someone is going to be

required by law.

I (thivam Properties wants to
'build a 50-foot-tall hotel on
L.the vacant lot downtown at
S* I the corner of Beach and 3rd St.,
next to McDonalds. Circuit Court
^. Judge Frederick Tygart recently
ruled that they can build a 50-ft-
tall office building or a 35-ft-tall
hotel, but not a 50-ft-tall hotel.
Prior to passage of the 35-ft
height amendment, the property
- was approved as a Redevelopment
- District and Shivam was author-
-* ized to build a 50-ft office building
there. Instead they want to build a
-* -50-ft-tall hotel because of market
S conditions.
- To do this they would have to
- change the list of permitted uses
lateral ~ for their Redevelopment District.
a V I e r Jacksonville Beach Planning
Department told them that they
S - could not change the permitted
intent uses as the structure was to be
intent taller than 35-ft.
Now it's funny, but on recom-
|| mendations of the same Planning
News Providers" Department, the Metropolitan,
which- is taller than 35 ft, even
--, taller than 50-ft, was allowed .to
change the permitted uses within
*- -- their Redevelopment District at
least twice since the new height
- - limit. In one instance the Council
had to also exempt a proposed
- -. new use as a bar from the normal
o -* 500-ft separation from existing
.- bars required by ordinance.
. -After-the Planning Department
toldShivam theycould.Iotdo the
something it had twice allowed
Metropolitan to do, Shivam asked
S the Circuit Court to determine if
S - they had vested rights to build a
- *, 50-ft hotel. Judge Frederick Tygart
--* ruled that they are not vested.
- -- I don't know if the Judge's rul-
S- ing makes the Metropolitan
changes illegal, but it does point
- out that in Jax Beach what matters
most often is not what you are
doing or whether in complies with
S the law but who you are and who
- - - you know. Unfortunately, my

e opment code is used not as sound
planning guidelines but as a sys-
tem of rewards and punishment.

Construction snags push

back opening of One Ocean

Renovations for a luxury
resort in Atlantic Beach are
ongoing, and the comple-
tion date has been pushed
back to May, according to
city building officials.
One Ocean, the luxury
resort spa and hotel replac-
ing the Sea Turtle Inn, was
scheduled to open in
February, but because of
"unanticipated" structural
problems, the hotel will not
be ready for opening until
May, according to General
Manager Sileshi Mengiste.
"It's just like building a
new thing, Mengiste said.
"We want to do the right
thing. We're correcting the
problems and [addressing]
the fine details."
The $28 million renova-
tion includes a new spa,
restaurant and lobby as well
as'a complete makeover of
the 193 ocean-view rooms.
Mengiste said the goal is
to achieve. five-star status,
but the original building
was erected in 1975 and has
required additional work.
"We found two man holes
when building the lobby,"
he said, explaining some of
the construction problems
crews have encountered.
There have also been
minor "permitting issues"
and several contractor
changes, according to the
city's building department.
The resort is anticipated to
open a few days after the
completion in early May,
Mengiste said.
Room rates will range in
price between $179 and
$509, Mengiste said previ-
ously, and guests will also
have access to a personalized
docent service.

It may be one of the least-
noticed government envi-
ronmental triumphs in
Florida history. The website
of the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
says: "Several springs have
been purchased by the state
of Florida to provide protec-
tion and public access. Many
of these springs, now state
parks, provide world-class
recreation and eco-tourism."
The website contains pho-
tos of a bunch of these love-
ly springs, and a number of
them are ones where I used
to go scuba diving when
they were wild. Not included
in the layout is the most-
recent acquisition (through a
lease agreement), a stunning
one that adds a wondrous
gem to the necklace of"
sparkling springs now main-
tained for the people of
That is Weeki Wachee
Springs, which has long been
a popular tourist attraction.
It's the "stage" for a unique
underwater show in which
women perform as live mer-
maids. I never went diving
there because it wasn't per-
mitted then. Now, however,
there's a commercial scuba
program, which will presum-
ably be continued to some
extent when the property
officially becomes a state
park on Nov. 1.
This wise land-purchase
program prevents the price-
less pieces of real estate from
being "trashed" by thought-
less individuals and gobbled
-up by private developers,

recreation by Florida citizens.

around and even in the
springs. At one, concrete pic-

that he had been chosen as

cer, Burrell works out of a
sub-station in the Pablo
Beach South neighborhood,
where his duties include
performing routine patrols,
mentoring youth and assist-
ing the elderly.
"That officer has to be
very skilled in community
relations," said Thomason,

who devised the C.A.P.E.
program in 1991.-
"They have to enjoy deal-
ing with people. It's teach-

paired with another officer.
"So, you have a lot of
contact with the same peo-

their habits are. I've enjoyed
that aspect of it."

Citizen Academy grad

Burrell is an anomaly in
the JBPD.
He attended the depart-
ment's bi-annual Citizen
Police Academy before
becoming a full-time police
officer in 2003.
"I was in CPA class No.
7," recalled Burrell, a
Denver native who grew up
in the San Diego area.
"When my wife and I
moved to Florida, she said,
'Why d6n't you do [CPA]? It
will be fun.' When I was in
the class, I started to see a

Burrell was majoring in
criminal justice at the
University of North Florida
at the time. His wife is a

time in the JBPD's records

Ever-evolving profession

Once on patrol, Burrell
primarily worked the day
shift, also known as second
watch, before being assigned
to the midnight shift (9:30
p.m. to 7:30 a.m.).
Burrell said he jumped at
the chance to get "off mid-
nights" and become a
C.A.P.E. officer and be more
involved with the depart-
ment's Community

ized unit that addresses
problems outside the realm

their research is constantly

events. The morning of the

invaded Iraq in order to flush
out suspected terrorists.
The Florida Coastal team
used the event in their case.
Some of the examples they
cited in the .regional competi-

because there are more recent
events that apply to their case.

that the terrorist had $300 mil-
lion to buy uranium so the
team is planning to use this
example in their case.

"I asked what I could do to
help out," said Burrell,
"because they always need
guys to shoot up or beat up

'I'll do that.' "
An entry team member on

Despite his quick ascen-

that police work is an ever-

Burrell said he owes his
success to "the partners that
he's worked with" and his
supervisors, including,
Medina, whom he said he
"would follow anywhere."
"None of this happened in
a vacuum," added Burrell,

There's so much more inside

the doors of The Body Gallery

This week you are going to enjoy a daily treat-
rment of enhancement to your physical and
spiritual person. Let's start the week with a
yoga class. On the next day, a massage will
continue the benefit of the yoga. Midweek
would be a good time to begin your VacuStep
sessions, a non-invasive treatment to reduce
the appearance of cellulite, and follow that on
Thursday with a facial and a tanning appoint-
ment to get ready for the weekend. On Friday,
you have an appointment to investigate a hot
new cleansing and fat burning system that is
taking Jacksonville by storm and another
appointment to consider permanent make-up.
Now that's a pretty busy week, but it dramatiz-
es the variety of services available at just one
convenient stop The Body Gallery in
Jacksonville Beach.
As owner Donna brognale says, The Body
Gallery "nourishes the body, mind and spirit."
Our recent hypothetical week did not even cover
all of the services and opportunities that Donna
and her husband Anthony have brought together

McGillis' spirit lives on through Jay Fund

Ten Tom Coughlin
left Boston College in
TV the winter of 1994 to
become the inaugural head
coach of the Jacksonville
Jaguars, he vowed to memori-
alize one of his former players,
Jay McGillis.
A sophomore strong safety,
McGillis started 10 games for
the Boston College Eagles in
1991, before being diagnosed
with leukemia.
He died eight months later at
the age of 21.
In 1996, the Tom Coughlin
Jay Fund Foundation was creat-
ed in honor of McGillis and to
provide emotional and finan-
cial support for the families of
children with leukemia and
other cancers.
To date, the Jay Fund has
donated almost $2 million to
assist families in need,
The foundation will hold its
fourth annual Wine Tasting
Gala Friday in downtown
Jacksonville. Tickets to the
fund-raising event are sold out.
"We were all devastated by
the news that Jay had
leukemia," Coughlin recalled
this week in a phone interview.
"I can remember telling the
team about it."
Coughlin, now the head
coach of the reigning Super
Bowl champion New York
Giants, said the Jay Fund hon-
ors the spirit of McGillis
because in dying, "Jay showed
tremendous dignity, integrity
and compassion for his family."
"He never once said, 'Why
me?,'" added Coughlin.
"The courage with which he
conducted himself, even to the
very end of his life, was a
tremendous example for all of

when he was recruited to play
football at Boston College.
In 1988 at Brockton (Mass.)
High, the alma mater of boxing
legend Rocky Marciano,
McGillis was a starting defen-
sive back on the nation's No. 1
high school football team.
The Brockton Boxers lost
only two games during the
three years that McGillis played

turnaround was bleak.
To remedy the situation,
Boston College hired New York

A stem taskmaster, Coughlin

would need a year to improve
BC's fortunes, and he would
lean heavily on overachievers
such as McGillis to initiate a
game plan for success.
"Jay knew the program need-
ed to be turned around,"
McGillis' mother, Pat, said last
week in a phone interview
from her Brockton, Mass.,
"Jay was very impressed with
Coach Coughlin's discipline.
He was used to that. His high
school coach, Armond
Colombo, was much like Tom."

"He was an admirable young
man and so well-liked by his
teammates," recalled Coughlini
who steered BC to a 9-3 record
in 1993 and a No. 13 ranking.
"He gave great effort in
everything he did. He never

The majority of great football

"He was a hitter"
Pat McGillis said her
youngest son was a sweet, kind-
hearted individual who tended
to be a "homebody."
"But on the field, his person-
ality changed. He was a hitter,"
Pat McGillis, the mother of six
children, recalled.

Pat McGillis
said her children were raised to
"show respect for their coach-
es." Jay chose to attend Boston
College because it was close to
home (about 40 minutes from
Brockton) and his family could
see him play on a regular basis.
After the 10th game of the
1991 season, trainers at BC told
Coughlin that McGillis was
exhibiting signs of mononucle-
osis and would have to sit out
the final game.

Further tests confirmed that
McGillis had leukemia, a blood
disorder. The following spring,
McGillis underwent a life-sus-
taining bone marrow trans-
plant. Cost of the five-figure
procedure was offset by a
fundraising lift-a-thon by
McGillis' teammates.
"Mike Panos, one of Jay's
closest friends on the team,
came to me and said, 'Coach,
we have to do something for
the family,' "recalled
"The players went out into
the community and got
pledges and we were able to
hand a check for $50,000 to
the McGillises at halftime of
the spring game. That's where
the idea of a helping families
came from."

Giant of a man
As the cancer ran unchecked
through McGillis' body, he told
his mother to stop visiting him
at the hospital.
"He said, 'Mom, I don't want
you to see what I'm going
through,'" Pat McGillis
"The whole time Jay was
sick, Tom was there for us. He
was like extended family."
Jay McGillis died on July 3,
1992. His football locker at BC
is encased in glass and an
endowed scholarship has been
established in his name.
Two years after leaving BC,
Coughlin founded the Jay
Fund to assist families such as
the McGillises who are bur-
dened by the high cost of med-
ical treatments.
Before he set his plan in
motion, Coughlin called Pat
McGillis to give her a heads

River Run has become a really impressive event

W whether you are "into"
marathon running or
don't see what all the
shouting's about, you have to
admit it must have been some-
thing to bring people to the
city from all over the country
on Saturday and not to see a
football game.
The River Run, er-Gate
River Run
(every event
outside of hop-
scotch in
now has a cor-
porate sponsor)
has been
another big
success with a
field of more
than 12,000 _

thing to screw ,
up traffic. .'
Only kid-
ding, folks, REX EDM
since we don't PRES
want those
who worship
the sport of running to get
miffed at us.
Running is "in" now. Every
city, it seems, has some version
of the River Run. Few, howev-
er, can compare with the
scenery of downtown
Jacksonville no matter what
the media critics that came
here for the Super Bowl had to


The St. Johns River lends a
special aura to the River Run
and few places outside of San
Francisco can match the chal-
lenge of hills and bridges here.
There was a time when jog-
ging was considered a joke. If
you're old enough, you might
recall when a lone jogger in a
city might hear some wiseguy
on the sidewalk shout, "Stop!
Thief!" It used
to never fail.
Now, running
is considered
the thing for
firms, business-
es and clubs to
become a part
of, to have rep-

S -. herd.

The start of February's Winter Beach Run along Jacksonville Beach. Running events remain popular for fitness enthusiasts.

The River Run gets its share
of publicity, but it's not the
only such event in the vicinity.
The Beaches Run is almost the
attraction, though not as popu-
lar or publicized.
There are runs for charitable
reasons, for personal reasons,
and for no reason at all. Except
for trying to prove something.
Whatever the reason, run-
ning is here to stay, for any
age. Maybe that's that makes it
so attractive to weekend war-
riors of all ilks.
Dolphins fall a win short
The Jacksonville University
Dolphins gave it a good shot,
but no cigar. Losing their last
chance to make the NCAA
Tournament, 79-61, to
Belmont's sure-shooting Bruins
on Saturday was a disappoint-

ment, but not a tragedy.
The Dolphins certainly
showed this season that they
are on the right track.
Playing in their first Atlantic
Sun Conference tournament
final since 1989, the Dolphins
were little match for the
Bruins, who won the crown for
a third straight year.
But as coach Cliff Warren
said, JU has come a long way
in two seasons and the
progress should be a motivat-
ing factor for next year.
Maybe 18-13 isn't a great
season, but compared to what
they're had in the past on the
Arlington campus, it's stimulat-
ing. A new administration is
showing the upward trend
Dolphins fans have been look-
ing for.
JU isn't near the glory days

of Artis Gilmore, Rex Morgan
and coach Joe Williams, but
after 30 years of wandering in
the wilderness, any shred of
success is reason for celebra-
Favre will be missed
The retirement of Brett Favre
after decades of greatness in
Green Bay leaves a big void in
the National Football League.
Not just for the Packers. Favre
was rare and he gave the game
something we can all be proud
of: Professional class.
Brett was wise to hang up his
cleats while he still at the top,
just as John Elway did.
It's sad when the greats in
sports don't know when to get
off stage and let the public
remember them as champions
not hangers-on.

Coughlin earns his reward;
Sorenson inks with Browns
So Tom Coughlin, the leader
of the world champion New
York Giants, was rewarded with
a four-year, $21 million con-
tract. Those of us who knew
him here figure he deserves his
new success. Old Tom wasn't
good enough to coach the
Jaguars, right?
And by the way, Nick
Sorenson, who was a star safety
(elected special teams captain
by his teammates until an
injury took him out and the
Jaguars figured he was washed
up at the age of 28) has been
given a three-year deal by the
Cleveland Browns.
Like Coughlin, the popular
Sorenson wasn't good enough
to stay here, right?

Students get their hands dirty

in a garden that has educated

hundreds over the past 3 decades


It's plant sale time at
Seabreeze Elementary, and the
public is invited. Four-inch pots
of begonias, impatiens, snap-
dragons, marigolds and petu-
nias cost $.50. The same-sized
geranium pots go for $.75,
while bell pepper pots and
tomato plants are sold for $1.
The plants are being sold by
members of Joe Andrew's fifth-
grade science class's botany
unit. Sales before and after
school are on a cash-and-carry
basis. The plant sale .continues
until everything is sold.
"Everything is far under mar-
ket value, so everybody gets a
good deal," Andrew said
Tuesday. "And as long as we
cover the bills, I'm happy. We
don't need to make profit. We
just need to pay for everything."
The sale is held annually the
several weeks of March before
spring break.
"We started [the plants pro-
gram] 30 years ago," said
Andrew, who started at the
Jacksonville Beach elementary
school 31 years ago. "The first
year I was way too busy to do
anything else but teach in the

Illinois to erect it. It's going to

The glass greenhouse is in the
Seabreeze courtyard. A hoop
house is right behind the green-
house and goes into the
school's back area. The hoop
house was donated by the par-
ents of one of Andrew's former
students. Andrew promised the
parents 30 years ago he would-
n't disclose their names, and he
holds to that promise.
"They've been very generous,
as have many of the families at

the Beach who are business
owners and so forth," he said.
In addition to running the
Seabreeze plants program,
Andrew teaches math, science
and social studies. He estimated
he's had at least 1,800 students
go through the program.
"Quite often, with the green-
house project and the plants,
children who may not other-
wise by excited about coming to
class really look forward to it.
Maybe they don't achieve, in
other areas, but when it comes
to growing plants, with a little
guidance, they seem to excel. It
gives them a lot of self-confi-
dence, the ability to grow and
take care of things," said
The Seabreeze youngsters
truly do roll up their sleeves
and dig right in.
"Yes, we do get dirty. There's
no doubt about it. But we're
always warned what to wear
on those particular days."

and proactive participation, in order to identify the community's
major planning issues and objectives. These issues and objec-
tives will form the framework for the evaluation and appraisal
report (EAR). Recommendations from the EAR will become the
basis for any amendments that will be made to the city's compre-
hensive plan.

A draft schedule for developing the EAR will be presented during
this meeting. As the EAR is developed and finalized, there will
be additional opportunities for public participation over the next
several months.

Anyone requiring special accommodations or additional informa-
tion please contact Beth Leister at (904) 256-2253 or e-mail no later than Friday March 711

COUGHLIN: Jay Fund continues to thrive

Coughlin, Judy Coughlin and

Jay Fund Celebrity Golf
Classic at Marsh Landing
Country Club in Ponte Vedra
Beach. The 12th annual event
in 2007 netted a record
$265,000 in proceeds.

Continued from page B-1
thinking of starting a foun-
dation in Jay's name.' I just
He learned so much from
Jay's illness."
Coughlin said one of his
first hires as head coach of
the Jaguars was his former
recruiting coordinator at
BC, Fran Foley.
Besides being the Jaguars'
inaugural assistant director
of pro personnel, Foley was
the first director and treas-
urer of the Jay Fund.
"When I hired Fran, I
said, 'In addition to your
duties, you are going to

help me establish what we
are going to call the Jay
Fund Foundation,' "
Coughlin recalled.
"I knew the name I want-
ed to call it and I knew
what the objective was
going to be. I just didn't
know how We were going to
do it."
By holding an annual
celebrity golf classic at
Marsh Landing Country
Club in Ponte Vedra Beach,
the Jay Fund distributed
more than $450,000 to
needy Jacksonville-area
pediatric leukemia patients
and their families during its

first four years of operation.
Keli Coughlin now directs
her father's foundation,
which netted $265,000 in
proceeds from last year's
12th annual charity golf
"Look what he has done,"
Pat McGillis, a lifelong New
England Patriots fan, said
about Coughlin's Jay Fund
"Jay's spirit lives on,
thanks to Tom Coughlin.
We couldn't have been hap-
pier for him when he won
the Super Bowl because he
deserved it.
"He is a giant."
