Tension-type headache is
the most common form of
headache with symptoms of
dull, aching, and non-pulsat-

of the head and can vary in
frequency and severity.

a headache. The term
"headache" is used and often
overused to describe a reac-

suffer from headache related
pain, identifying it as "I have

to find the appropriate treat-
ment` to alleviate headache
pain, it is critical to delve
deeper and identify a specific
Determining what type of
headache a person suffers
from is the first step to find-
ing appropriate treatment.
According to a recent survey
by the National Headache
Foundation (NHF), 73% of
headache sufferers reported
experiencing more than one
type of headache. For this
majority, it is ~essential to
determine headache type in
order to develop a specific
treatment regimen. While
migraine was th6 most com-
mon and well-known type of
headache in the survey, with
60% of respondents claiming
it as a type they suffer from, it
is important to get a diagnosis
by a healthcare professional
to determine what type of
headache you actually have.
Seventy-three percent of
NHF survey respondents
reported taking initiative to
determine their headache
type and learn more about
their condition. Of this
group, 57% took matters into
their own hands and conduct-
ed personal research via the
Internet and reading health-
care magazines. Of the 86%
of respondents who consulted
a healthcare professional on
this issue, 59% were successful
in gaining a diagnosis of a
specific headache type.
"Educating yourself on dif-
ferent types of headache is
important, said Lisa Mannix,
M.D., Board Member,
Foundation and practicing
physician. "However, it is
best to make an appointment
with your healthcare profes-
sional to obtain an accurate
diagnosis and to establish the
appropriate treatment plan."

respondents who reported not
knowing that medication and

example of a non-traditional
treatment option used by 16%
of the survey participants.

an outspoken advocate of the
city's police department to
encourage continued support
for the agency and to help stop
the spread of violence.
The detectives investigating-
his case, Chesnut said, went
"above and beyond" and theit
swift actions resulted in the
arrest of three Atlantic Beach
teens Sunday afternoon within
24 hours of Chesnut's assault-
"'We are fortunate to live in a
town with perhaps the fineSt
police in all of Northeast
Florida. I am deeply concerned
about upcoming budget cuts in
Jacksonville and Tallahassee and
how it could affect our under-
staffed police department,"
"I understand that we staff, of
course, based on population
here in Jacksonville Beach.
However, on the weekends and
on some nights we take on a
population much larger."
Chesnut publicly recognized
Det. Daniel Watts, Det. Andrew
Lavender, J.T. Holcomb, Det.
Sgt. Mark Evans and Officer Eric
Shaughnessy for "their attitude
and professionalism and hard
work .. as these young men
"I ask in these tough times
that we make- sure that all their
needs are met and make sure
that they are fully staffed," he
said. "This past weekend the
police department was there
when I needed them. Let's make
sure that we as a community are
there when they need us."

First, the inconvenience.
Many left turns will be elimi-

turn left on to a blocked street,
call it Street B, he will have to
drive on to unblocked Street C

on to unblocked Street A, and
drive around the block to get
to his Street B. Now, the haz-
ard. Some drivers won't do

they will drive obliquely to

they will make it; some times

MSD needs trustees
Tlhe seven-member board of The Ponte Vedra

the MSD boundaries.
Tlhe MSD) is an independent taxing authority pro-
viding certain municipal services for the area east of
A1A south to Corona Road, then south along both
sides of P~onte Vedra Boulevard.
Vacancies between elections are filled by appoint-
ment of the governor. In all fairness, the delay has
not all been the governor's fault. There was some
confusion in getting official letters of resignation,
and it has been difficult to find volunteers to fill the
Now, however, the governor has received the resig-
nation letters and has the applications of two people
who are willing to serve. Both of the prospective
,trustees appear to be well qualified by education and
experience and, though this is a non-partisan board,

experience includes founding and running his own
company. Gordon Blalock is vice-president, sales for
a company that brokers private jets. He is retired from
the Navy and has an undergraduate degree in gov-
ernment and public administration.
Perhaps the governor would like more prospects to
choose from. That might be preferred, but it is not
the current situation. What we do have are two qual-
ified candidates willing to serve. If it were election
timne, each would be elected without opposition. The
governor has the same choice.

employee who has worked
with the Mayport Waterfront
Partnership for approximately
nine years will be reassigned.
Edward Lukacovic, the part-
nership's program manager,
has been reassigned to other
areas of Jacksonville's Planning
and Development Department
and will no longer work for the
Partnership, he said Tuesday.
Lukacovic's time has been
split between the Partnership
office in Mayport and
Jacksonville's Planning and
Development office down-
to t, he said that he was told
last week his last day working
for the partnership would be
this coming Friday.
When asked why he was
reassigned, he said "I don't
have an answer," explaining
that he was not given a reason.
Planning and Development
Director Brad Thoburn said
that the decision to reassign
Lukacovic was made after
reviewing the best allocation of
time and resources.
"Its a case of taking a look at
the best use of our existing
resources," he said,' citing
budget cutbacks. "I just could-
n't justify the time spent in
[the Mayport] office."
The Partnership was formed
in 1997 as a joint effort
between the cities of
Jacksonville and Atlantic Beach
to "bring economic revitaliza-
tion to the eastern shore area of

"The Partnership will be able
to survive without him,"

as project manager as a politi-

Jacksonville to make way for a
proposed cruise terminal in the

Partnership Treasurer Carroll
Huffines in a Feb. 28 e-mail to
Jacksonville city officials.
"The alleged second assault
will be efforts to dissolve the
Partnership, thereby removing
opposition by businesses and
officials, and clearing the way
for the development of a
Cruise Ship Seaport Terminal in
Mayport Village by JAXPORT."
But, Partnership Chair David
Fisher said that while some
believe that the elimination of
a program manager may be
"political," the group plans to
continue "business as usual."

she'd like the community to know how

funding, this is a way for kids to be able to
do things they never would have been able

She said she hopes for audience help.

we want them to reciprocate by giving back

One hundred sixty-eight

Mayport Middle School were
beneficiaries April 16 of
some Fleet Landing gene-
oristy. For being members of
the school's A-B honor roll,
they were awarded a lunch
prepared by Fleet Landing's

served by members of the

as well as members of the
"At Fleet Landing we have
an outreach program," said
Corcoran. "We like to get
involved in the community,

we're doing. We're treating
the students to a nice lunch-

Fleet Landing and Mayport
Middle came together
because of a letter written by
PTA member Karen Foster.
"We have, in the past, had
to pay for the honor roll
luncheons out of the PTA
budget," Foster said last
Wednesday. "As a result, we
was needed, they've come in
and taken care of for us."
This year's first two honor
roll lunches were sponsored
by Bubba Burgers. Members
of American Legion Post 129
cooked burgers and donated
buns and cheese. The PTA
paid for chips, the school
supplied drinks. Mackoul
donated ice cream treats.
"We are excited about the
fact that this year most of
the food from our three
luncheons has been donat-
ed," said PTA president '
Brenda Wray. "This is signifi-
cant because, in recent years,
the luncheons ate up half of
Our rather small budget. This
frees up dollars to be used
for things the school needs."
Those, Wray outlined,
included help with the
drama department's spring
musical, to be held at the
school April 24-25; cheer-
leader uniforms, band ban-
ner, tractor/lawn mower for
athletics, small donation to
each school department, bus
transportation for the band's
'local~ performances, refresh-
ments at various events and ~
a teacher appreciation lunch

projects around the school.
"Family members have
moved into Fleet Landing
and told me that it has to do
community volunteer service
projects. I wrote a letter, and
a family member presented
it. Chef Dennis contacted me
and said they would be
thrilled to do the honor roll
luncheon for us. [Fleet
Landing is providing]
absolutely everything. But
we have ice cream that's
been donated by Mackoul
Distributors," she said.
CFO/COO Roger Palmer,
who, led the Fleet Landing

Wray, who was first in line.
"I like honor roll lunches
because it's a bit nicer food
than some in the cafeteria."
Added Pript, "T like coming

The honor roll lunchroom
was set up on the driveway
in front of the Atlantic Beach
"For each honor roll lunch
we've gotten a business part-

McCray. "hri the past the PTA

Jacksonville needs someone to

The best way to beat a super

handing off. If the other guys
don't get stopped before they
get started, all kinds of bad
things can happen.
Solution? Draft that rusher

to be one of the biggest quar-
