In a meeting Wednesday, St.
Johns County Commissioners
and School Board members
began the first stages for devel-
oping a school concurrency
plan, which will make develop-
ers pay for new schools before
they impact existing ones.
But Commissioner Ben Rich
said the new pay-as-you-go sys-
tem won't solve the problem of
overcrowded schools as long as
the Board of County
Commissioners keeps approv-
ing more developments.
"In order to solve your prob-
lem we approve more growth,
which exacerbates your prob-
lem; We throw gasoline on the
wildfire," Rich told School
Board members Wednesday.
"You're going to stay in this
problem. This [concurrency]
isn't going to fix it."

Jerry Cameron, aide to St.

representatives of the CBS
news program "60 Minutes"
for an interview on his views
on the legalization of drugs.
The retired law enforcement
officer and former Fernandina

active spokesman for Law
Prohibition, a group promot-
ing the legalization of certain
drugs such as marijuana.

OUR MISSION IS TO PUBLISH
A DISTINGUISHED COMMUNITY
NEWSPAPER FOR THE BEACHES
March 3, 2006
THE BEACHES LEADER/PONTE VEDRA LEADER I
I The Leader's Opinion
Legislation has been filed for the 2006 Legislative-Session
that will make it harder for plaintiffs to bring invasion of pri-
vacy lawsuits that punish free speech. This legislation will
correct abuses that have recently arisen under Florida law
and will protect the free flow of truthful information to the
Over 200 years ago, prior to the American Revolution,
English law applicable in the Colonies allowed damages to
be awarded merely for publishing words that were harmful
to reputation. Truth was not a defense. To the contrary,
some courts followed the maxim that "the greater the truth
of the statement, the greater the libel." Fortunately,
American juries, state legislators and, ultimately, the U.S.
Supreme Court rejected this form of suppression of free
speech, .and today all speech about matters of public con-
cern is protected by the First Amendment unless it is shown
to be false, the.product of the fault of the publisher, and the
cause of actual injury.
Yet, the law applied by some state courts in Florida ignores
this histonc and important evolution of free speech protec-
tion' and reverts to early) English libel law-that placed little
value on the publication of truthful information. In "false
light" invasion of privacy lawsuits, plaintiffs seek damages
for publication of truthful information from which the pub-
lic might draw false conclusions about the plaintiff. The
suits are disturbing because any person can use them to pun-,
ish the publication of truthful information and, worse, to
deter the future publication of truthful information.
In a recent case, the Pensacola News Journal was sued for
false light invasion of privacy based on an article that the
plaintiff claimed implied he murdered his wife during a
hunting trip. The plaintiff never disputed that he had fatal-
ly shot his wife but contended the newspaper's use of the
phrase "shot and killed" implied murder. The article stated
-in a subsequent paragraph that authorities had determined
that the shooting was a hunting accident. Although each
sentence in the story was true and based entirely on public
records, the plaintiff claimed the -article placed him'in a
"false light," or, more accurately, placed him in a "bad
light." The jury accepted the argument and entered a verdict
against the newspaper for S18.28 million dollars. The case'
is now on appeal.. .
Other cases filed around the state by a variety of plaintiffs
also seek millions or even billions of dollars, in damages for
articles and television broadcasts that are entirely true and
based on information taken from public records, but that are
claimed to convey false and defamatory implications.
These lawsuits, often leveled against newspapers and
other media, can also be directed at anyone who publishes
truthful information. All persons and businesses must now
prepare to litigate the impression that may be created by the
, .truthful. reporting of the contents of. public records. For;
S--example, businesses that use public records to compile infor-,
mation for potential employers or to supply financial insti-
tutions with credit reports may be sued for the impression
created by their reports.
The United States Supreme Court, courts throughout the
nation, and even most courts in Florida have recognized for
many years that the "false light" tort is easily misused by
plaintiffs seeking to punish speech about public matters.
This has led many states to reject these lawsuits or to tight-
en the requirements for bringing them.
In a similar, bipartisan effort to correct this growing prob-
-lem in Florida, Senator Rod Smith (D-Gainesville), has filed
a bill (SB 1346) that will clarify the requirements-for bring-
ing a false light lawsuit. Representative David Simmons (R-
Altamonte Springs), Chairman of the House Judiciary.
Committee, likewise is supporting a proposed committee
bill to do the same, thing.
These bills will ensure that truthful speech is protected
"against "false light" claims just as effectively as it is protect-
ed against libel claims. This not orily will protect legitimate
reporting by journalists and the right of the public to .news
.and information, it also will protect individuals and busi-
1 nesses that publish truthful information as a part of their

Biologist supports using Gu
To the editor:
I was a field biologist fresh out of college when
I joined "Friends. of Newport Bay" in southern
California as a field naturalist and Saturday pro-
gram docent. The purpose of this group was to
interpret the biology and history of the upper
Newport Bay tidal basin to visitors, thereby pro-
tecting it. It is a very important ecological habitat
for the migratory bird Pacific Flyway, then under
severe development pressure. A controversy
existed several years before, not unlike the Guana
Preserve question: a new college, the University
of California, irvine, was being developed just
south of the basin on its border, and the storm
drainage was being directed into the bay.
The important point for the purposes of the
proposed Ponte Vedra high school is what
occurred to solve the dilemmas faced by that
development. The UC system and regents
embraced the idea that the school was being
placed next to a protected habitat and made it
part of the new school's core values. Science and
anthropological sites, use as a natural laboratory,
research into the preservation of the bay, species
specific counts, development of the drainage
-infrastructure and treatment -system, and; other
activities, have improved the Upper Newport Bay
preserve, by making it into an integral part of-the
landscape there. Its future has been better secured
through this partnership, despite being on some
of the most expensive potential real estate in the
world, right next to the famed Newport Harbor.
There is an opportunity to do something simi-
lar with the new high school site proposed on
Micklers Landing Road. With some innovation
and partnership, the school could embrace the
Guana parklands as one of its core values. As.the
site was developed, special care towards maximiz-

once-in-a-lifetime project: clean-

house. After 44 years at the same
address, I've amassed a mass of
"items" that could-fill a landfill.
However, since I grew up during
the Not-Sq-Great Depression;. a
waste not-want not era, the-
prospect of removing all the
things I could never part with is
daunting. I might phone

My wife; who passed away in
1998, was the direct opposite of
me when it came to "stuff."
Wherever she was, at home or
work, she was the first-string
pitcher. If it didn't have a useful
function, out it went. She want-
ed to de-rubbish my study but
refrained because several people
who went in there have never
been seen again.
We had a very happy, 50-year
marriage. Still, I consistently
picked up my socks, etc., and
took out the garbage because I
was always a little unsure
whether she was gonna throw
me out, too. Okay, that's a gag,
but since she died, I'm afraid my
pack rat penchant has become
more pronounced. If she were
warming up in the bullpen, I'd
call her for relief.
I'm obviously not alone on
this foible. There's an enterpris-
ing guy in New York, Ron
Alford, who calls my malady
"disposophobia: the fear of get-
ting rid of stuff." He runs a com-

ple whose digs have gotten so
overstuffed there are fire, safety,
and health hazard issues.
The implication is that such
folks have a mental problem.

to justify my hoarding. For

S- Lacrosse earns key victory
It looks good on paper, but
the World Baseball Classic
is turning out to be a,
nightmare for major league
baseball players, managers
Ostensibly, the WBC is the
first true international compe-
tition featuring 16 teams of.
all-stars from around the
, In reality, when San Diego
Padres catcher Mike Piazza
suits up for Italy, a country
he's never even visited, the
WBC becomes a farce. Gene
Orza, chief operating officer
of the players association,
convinced Piazza to play for
Italy and tried to get Yankees'
pitcher Mike Mussina to do
"I told him I'm not Italian
arid nobody in my family is
Italian," Mussina informed
the New York media.
Among the big problems
with the WVBC is its timing.
Play begins Friday and major
leaguers are still rounding into
shape after a long winter of
hibernation. It's pitchers that
are most at risk of doing dam-.
age to their arms by trying to
r.ow hard too early in the
they plan to take it easy, but
in a close ballgame the adren-
aline will kick in and the
temptation to reach back for
something extra on that 3-2
fastball will be hard to resist.
Boston Red Sox slugger
David Ortiz, who,will play for
the Dominican Republic, cites
the limited pitch count and
overall shape of the partici-'
pants as reasons play will be a
notch below regular season
"I see it like pretty much
spring training games," he
said. "I don't think any one
of the players is ready to play
a full game yet, so it's going
to be interesting."
Another problem with the
WBC is that it pits teammates
against each other. Yankees
shortstop Derek Jeter will play
for the United States while
outfielder Bernie Williams
will don the colors of his
native Puerto Rico. Will
Williams try to take Jeter.out
at second on a double-play?
How would combustible
owner George Steinbrenner
react to an injury to either
But perhaps the largest '
problem with the World
Baseball Classic is that sortime
of the biggest names have
withdrawn. Stars such as
Manny Ramirez, Pedro
Martinez and Vladimir
Guerrero three big guns on
the talent-laden Dominican
squad have opted out.
Yankees outfielder Hideki
Matsui will not play for
Japan. Mariano Rivera has
said thanks, but no thanks to
Initially, the WBC was sup-
posed to provide a test of the
best against the best, but with
so many late scratches it's
more like the out-of-shape
pretty goods versus the we're-
kinda-talented also rans.
The recently completed
Winter Olympics demonstrat-
ed national pride carn be a
great motivating factor. Many
participants in the WBC are
proud of their heritage and
wish to honor the colors on
the front of their jerseys.
But let's not kid ourselves.
Major League baseball players
truly play for only one color:
Green. There's no money on
the line in the classic, but
players will soon return to the
egotistical pursuit of playing
forthe name on the back of
their jerseys. That's when
we'll know it really is baseball

The Nease boys lacrosse team
continued its strong start with a
morale-building, 11-8 win over
The victory came on the heels
of two earlier wins, a season-

found hard to beat.

Freshman attacker Brett Ang-

him, put two behind Bolles goal-
keeper Ryan Switzer, while jun-
ior midfielder Stockton, return-
ing from a shoulder injury, had,
a goal and two assists.
To most of the Panthers, the'
victory was. their first-ever
against the Bulldogs. That
includes Chandler Barden, one
of the team's four senior cap-
tains, along with McManus,
defender Rob Bauwens and goal-
keeper Zach Wondrow.
Barden is a defensive main-
stay at 6'5", 190 pounds, size he
used to play tight end on Nease's
state championship football
"We never actually beat them
in the four years I've been play-
ing," said Barden. "We also beat
Episcopal, who we've never
beaten since I've been here."
Barden credited hard work for
the team's success. In that vein,.
Stockton, Bauwens, McManus
and junior midfielder Grant
McManus, who beat Bolles as
a freshman, was pleased by the
"It feels great beating Bolles
for the first time in a while," said
McManus. "I think we're going
all the way this year. I think we
played a very good game. We all
moved the ball around real well.
I think it's going to carry us in
the long run."
Thogh Bolles staged a mini-
comeback in ,the fourth quarter,
Wondrow thought the Panthers
defense held up well.
"I think we had a good night,"
said Wondrow, who has been in
goal for three years. "I think the

Nease head coach Jack Francis
wrapped up the win by saying,
"The kids are happy. They
worked real hard. It got a little
too close for comfort at the end.
The good thing is we won."
Francis returned to the task of
improving his team.
"We also found out we have
some things, to work on. We
have some discipline problems,
as far as playing position, not
trying to take the ball away and
that kind of thing. I think we'll
get there. We're getting better
Francis hasn't been surprised
by his, team's 3-1 start after going

"I think we're benefitting
from a couple things,"' he said.

Where were you "when
the music died"? Or.
better yet do you
know who "the music" was?
Of course, it was along time
ago and in reality there are
more people alive, today that
were not alive then and there
are people who are still alive
now that were alive then.
Confused? Me too. The
music was Buddy Holly who
was named the music in a 1971
song titled American Pie, writ-
ten by Don McLean. Buddy
was to. rock and roll music
what Curt Gowdy was to hun-

young men and women of the
.sixties and seventies who were
hooked on fishing.
Back in the day of Curt's
show,,. "The American
Sportsman," viewing fishing
on television was severely lim-
Let's see we had, Gadabout
Gaddis, and locally, Monroe
Campbell. Gadabout was an
older gentleman whose show
was basically about his fishing,
exploits where he piloted his
small plane to remote places in
the northern U.S. and Canada
chasing muskies and walleyes.
That show was, well, to a
young man in Florida less than
inspiring. Don't get me wrong,
it was a good show but catch-
ing walleyes has got to.be, kin
to catching saltwater sail cats.
You know) get sail cat slimie on
you one time and you've defi-
nitely had enough for the day.,
Another problem Gadabout
had was unfortunate timing.
The Great Lakes and many of
the southern Canadian lakes of
the time were very polluted
and almost devoid of sporting,
catchable fish. That's probably
why he had to fly to his fishing,
Roper and Ebert would have
given Gadabout two thumbs
up but they probably: like
Broke Back Mountain too, so
you be the judge of their cred-
Now, Monroe Campbell .is
another story entirely. Monroe
did a show on Thursday nights
for public television Channel
Capt. Bob Ulrich with an 18.5-pound genuine red snapper
caught about 20 miles east of Mayport on Feb. 18.
7. His format was simple, go
fishing, film his guest and him
catching fish, and show 15
minutes of the film during his
show. The remaining 15 min-
utes of the show'was live call in
question and answer.
. As a photographer, Monroe
was a little lacking. The quality
wasn't there but it's easy to
understand that it could be
hard to fight a fish on a small
spinning rod while at the same
time trying to film that.same
But who cared? Monroe
fished both saltwater and
freshwater locally and he did
catch fish. The best part of his
show though' was the 15-
minute live call in. I do a live
call in show on radio on
Saturday mornings and we
have what is known as a seven
second delay. In other words, if
a caller say something inappro-
priate our producer has a
seven-second window to bleep
the inappropriate part of the
conversation. FCC regulations,
'Monroe, on the other hand,
did not have that luxury and
whatever a caller asked is what
'came across your television set.
Boy, there were some really
bad ones too.
Like I said, fishing shows
were very limited'back then.
Monroe had quite a following
here and I must admit, I do
miss him and his show.
That brings us to Curt
Gowdy and the American

would all have spent Sundayi
afternoons mindlessly watch.-

like NASCAR. Anyway, Curt
was known to fish some of the
more exotic places and for real
manly-man fish. Let's see, big

Florida and I also remember
him catching tarpon on the
west coast. What a strong fish.
Yes, Curt Gowdy had other
great things to his credit like
announcing televised Super
Bowls and World Series games.
And yes, he was a great radio
announcer. He even owned
five radio stations.
But to me he was the music.
He was an inspiration on-
Sunday afternoons that gave
myself and thousands of oth-
ers the bug to sport fish.

so good when turned over

So, let's prepare, and in a
month, I promise you will
be reaping all the rewards.
Let's look at the lawn first.
Chances are it still looks
pretty lousy from winter. It
is brown, except for those
dang weeds that are green
and overly obvious.
It is sparse in areas, and
perhaps in many areas it
really looks dead.
Depending on where you
live, yours might be turning
green already which means
you will be among the lucky

ready for its first spring
If you already feel over-
whelmed, just take a cup of
coffee with you for a leisure-
ly stroll through your yard,
mentally making a few
notes of things to do later.
It can be overwhelming,
and although I am making
light of that fact, the early

is the worst in our yards,

away the sting. But we are
retired now, and there are
not so many of those coins
clanging, so more of the
yard work must come from
my husband and myself.
So, trust me, I am with
you on that stroll of inspec-
Later on this month you
will want to do the one
chore that is the most
important to getting the
lawn off to a good start, and
actually if you do that, you
are many steps ahead.
Fertilizing, simply giving
food to the grass, is the
number one job for the
month of March.
Grass needs food to sur-
vive just like we do, and
March is the month to feed
The word for that is fertil-
izing since there are many
types of lawn food available.
It can be very confusing, so
I will try to keep it very sim-

of your yard so you know
how many square feet you
have to feed.

During one of his long runs through
Dublin's sprawling Phoenix Park,
Father Joe Meehan stumbled onto his
Instead of pursuing an accounting degree
at a local college and running for Dublin's
famed .Donore Harriers, Meehan would
become a man of the cloth.
"I thought I. wanted to be an accountant,"
Nfbehan recalled Monday at his parish office
at St. John The Baptist Catholic Church in
"I was more keen on running than. any-
thing else. Then one day during one of my
runs I thought, 'There has to be something
better to do with my life.' "
Meehan was 21 at the time an'd a member
of an amateur running club that won a
record 16 All-Ireland cross country titles.
One of his teammates, Bertie NMessit, would
go on to win a gold medal in the 1956 World
Meehan was fast, too. He could crank out
5-minute miles with no problem. He once
clocked 31 minutes for a 6-mile run.
Meehan also played soccer. He knew sports
would be hard to give up if he were to
choose the priesthood.
It all worked out in the long run.
Meehan went on to play soccer and run
cross country for the University of Fribourg
in Switzerland, where he graduated with a
Sunday marks his 40th anniversary as a
priest. The Dublin native will celebrate the
milestone with family and friends at the
same church where he was ordained: Our
Lady of the Angels in northern Ireland.
Meehan left Thursday for Dublin, where
temperatures are in the single digits this
time of year.
"I've got thermal underwear in my suit-
case," he said.
Meehan has been the pastor at St. John's
Unlike many of the more than two dozen
Irish priests on the First Coast, Meehan did
not attend a seminary in Ireland and was
not specifically recruited to be a priest in
He went to a seminary in England and
spent 11 years as a priest at St. Francis de
Sales Catholic Church in South London.
In 1977, he was sent to America to replace
an English priest at St. Patrick's Catholic
Church near Atlanta.

Pirates to 'sack' St. Augustine on Saturday
Villainous pirates will once
more hold St. Augustine in
their grip when an authentic

The "Sack of St. Augustine:
Captain Robert Searle's Raid
of 1668" will provide specta-

horrors inflicted on the city's
residents by marauding
pirates of the Caribbean. "

Atlantic Beach resident whose

"I figured other people
would like to see them, too,

too guilty about it. To name
just two examples: "Hustle

"Transamerica," which have
been nominated for Best Actor

So I couldn't be a well-
informed critic even if I tried.
That said, here are some
random observations about
this year's Oscar nominations.
Best Picture: Due to its
combo of Steven Spielberg and
serious subject matter, I fully
expect "Munich" to win,
though I think it was wildly
overpraised. I'd be thrilled to
see either "Capote" or
"Brokeback Mountain" win.
But both prominently fea-
ture gay subject matter and

"Brokeback," I'm not sure that

delightfully offbeat and Oscar-
If "March of the Penguins"
doesn't get named Best

tainly wins for Best Guilty

but Woody Allen's "Annie

course of a year. Once done,
lock the number in.
Then, again keeping it very
simple, buy your fertilizer.
This can be a challenge, espe-,
cially if you get into a compli-
cated conversation with a
salesperson who might give
you much more information
than you need to know. We
are not worrying about bugs,
weeds, or anything else except
food for the lawn right now.
So, look for a bag that has,
three numbers on it'that are
something like 15-0-15, 20-5-
10, 16-4-8, and that has the
number of square feet you
have to feed.
Yes, you may need'to buy
several bags to get the total
amount of square footage cov-
ered, but so it goes.
Try not to buy the least
expensive nor the most
expensive; suffice it to say
that either one will have some
components that you either
do not need right now or that
are detrimental to the initial
feeding of the lawn.
Again, keep it simple and it
will not overwhelm you. If
you know what you need,
that chatty salesperson will
not be able to confuse you
You will need something to
spread this food with, so if
you have to buy or rent a
spreader, now is the time.

Knotts, McGavin enter sitcom immortality
L ast week saw the deaths
of two revered actors
whose most famous
roles saw each of them carry-
ing a single bullet (silver, in
Sone instance) for their pro-
Darren McGavin, who died
last Saturday at age 83, saw
his career span from TV's
early days (playing private
eve Mike Hammer) through
the 1990's (when he won an
-Li iy. fQx, a gtUe &pt-as
Candace. Bergen's dad on
But he will probably be
remembered most for two
Kids of all ages enjoyed
NMcGavin in "A Christmas
Story" (1983) as the embar-
rassing father (he favored
lamps shaped like women's
legsl who nevertheless had
enough sense not to buy a
beloved BB gun as a
Christmas gift for his son
(Peter Billingsleyi because
"you could pu't an eye out"
But TV horror fans revere
,McGavin's portrayal' of jaded,
Las Vegas reporter Carl
Kolchak, who suddenly finds
he has a vampire to hunt
down in "The Night Stalker"
(1973), a famed TV-movie
that spun off into a short-
lived TV series and continues
to inspire (Chris Carter cited
it as a creative source for his
show "The X-Files"). ,
Don Knotts, who died last
Friday at age 81, also had a
long career in TV and
His first claim to fame was,
as a nerve-racked man-on-
the-street being interviewed
by Steve Allen in the first era
of 'The Tonight Show" in
the 1950s. At the far end of
his TV career was his '80s
turn as would-be ladies, man
Ralph Furle' on "Three's
L' Company." ..e.:-:...
But his most.famous.role._,
was well-meaning but inept
Mayberry deputy Barney Fife
on "The Andy Griffith
Shoi4," for which he won
five Emmys: :
He parlayed his five years
as Fife into a movie career
playing equally well-mean-
ing saps, such as "The
Incredible Mr. Limpet"
(which used animation to
change him from a milque-
toast man to a talking fish).
His twitchy persona often,
belied a sly wit, seen to best
advantage on game shows.
On "The Hollywood
Squares," he once was asked,
"You have a great deal of
trouble sleeping at night. Are
you a man or a woman?"
Knotts replied, "That's what's
.keeping me awake!"
Knotts, final movie turn in
"Pleasantville" (1998) was an
eerily appropriate role, as a
mysterious TV repairman
'who sends two teenagers to
- l e*their lives in ajia old. l.'
blaekranud-white sitcoti ,*n-.'
TV nostalgia and history
have similarly placed Knotts
in sitcom immortality.

'Shadow and Light' at Bethel
by KATHY NICOLETTI
Photographs from as far
away as Russia and Africa are
featured in a new photogra-
phy show called "Shadow and
Light" at Bethel Gallery in
Ponte Vedra Presbyterian
The exhibit features the
work of photographer and
instructor Pam Casey as well
as the work of five of her stu-
dents. The show will be open
until March 19.
Casey began her journey as
a photographer with an inex-
pensive camera ordered for
her by her grandmother.
"I loved taking pictures
since I got my first camera
from the back of a cereal box
at the age of 8," said Casey.
"What I find most challeng-.
ing and fascinating is being
able to interpret scripture
through my -camera. It is a
way of reflecting God's cre-
ation, glory, and love to oth-
Casey's photographs from
an Evangelism Explosion (EE)"
Mission Trip to Russia are part
of the exhibit.
While attending the 10th
annual Len Ministries Dinner
in Jacksonville with her hus-
band. Terry last spring, Casey:
learned about an EE mission
trip to Russia planned for
"I turned to my husband
and said, 'Wouldn't it be neat
to go and take pictures?' All of
a sudden I was on my way; to
Russia," Casey said.
After quickly preparing for
the trip and being trained in
EE techniques, Casey and the
rest of the group traveled to
Nizhny Novgorod in central
'Casey said' that she. found
the Russian people warm and
"Because you're American,
they're interested in talking
with you," she said.
With the help of a transla-
tor, Casey was prepared to use
her EE training and speak with
people on the street or at
"This is a fantastic method
Although most people iden-
tified themselves as Russian
Orthodox in faith, they usual-
ly indicated that they did not
attend church, she said'
EE volunteers are trained to
respond by introducing the
idea of making a commitment
to Christ and becoming active
in a church community.
"Spome of the people we
spoke with were ready to
make a commitment," she
said. If people were resistant,
"we were not pushy and
The group also brought
*hats, scarves and quilts to
children i in orphanages and
distributed Bibles' with
Russian and English transla-
"I expected everything to be
poor and bleak," she said, "but
'it was not quite like that."
Casey was drawn to photo-
graph many of the people she
encountered in Russia. These
informal portraits along with
several of her photographs of
Russian scenes, are on display
in "Shadow and Light."
Also in the exhibit are her
students' photographs 'of
Africa, other foreign foreign
countries, local scenes, nature
and a study of night photogra-
Students with photographs
in the exhibit are Hazel
Dalton, Mathew Jones, Lynn

Casey, who has taught pho-
tography classes locally for
eight years, will teach a class
at the church this month. In
this class she will share her
enthusiasm for digital photog-
raphy and the "fun of'
"Three years ago I complete-
ly changed over to digital,"
she said. "It has renewed my
passion for the limitless possi-

When Meehan was growing
up in Dublin, he said, the
city was teeming with semi-
naries and running clubs.
He fondly recalls running
in only a singlet, shorts and
shoes during the winter.
Dublin's Phoenix Park, one of
the world's largest urban
parks at 1,700 acres, is where
he did most of his training
"It was a great time in
Ireland," said Meehan, who
was ordained a priest at age
28 on March 5, 1966.
"All the seminaries were
full. There used to be a semi-
nary in Dublin [All-Hallows]
that specialized in training
Irish priests for America. All
its graduating classes went
overseas. There were 1,200
Irish men ordained [in 1966].
That's an extraordinary fig-
ure for a small country.
"It's more materialistic now
.in Ireland. It used to be more
spiritual. And it's not just ,a
question of the, priesthood.
We used to export priests,
nurses, police officers and
school teachers. The Irish
-have lost their attraction for
Meehan was ordained by
the' Archbishop of Dublin
and the event was chronicled
in Dublin's Evening Herald-
under the headline, "Runner
Meehan, 68, was still run-
ning at the time, btit not(
competitively. He. is the only
one in his family to become a
priest and the only one living
."I wasn't thinking of
America at all when I started
out," said Meehan, who
entered the seminary in the
"I thought I would end up
in Brazil. I had an interest in
going to South America
because the need was bigger
"I had, remembered Pope
Pius XII saying that he need-
ed 60,000 priests for South
America. That kind. of .stuck
with me. I said, 'OK. I'd be'
willing to do that.' "
Four decades later, Meehan
jokes that Jacksonville is as
far south as he got.
And he's no longer the run-
"I just walk on the beach,"
said Meehan, who once spe-
cialized in 9-mile races.
"But I never walk less than
4 to 5 miles." ,,.,
