PVCA eyes sidewalk

for north boulevard

In August, about two dozen
Ponte Vedra Boulevard resi-
dents south of Corona Road
jump-started a sidewalk project
in front of their homes by
agreeing to pay for most of the
cost to construct it.
Now, that notion has spread
to the board members for the
Ponte Vedra Community
Association IPVCA), who
decided Monday to poll boule-
vard residents just south of the
Duval County line to see if
they want to do the same.
"I would not be on that
street (Ponte Vedra Boulevardi
walking or riding a bicycle,"
said PVCA board member
Doug Hudson in Monday
night's meeting.
"It's a safety issue."
Because sidewalks are not
always. desired,'by all residents
- particularly those whose
yards are affected by the con-
struction PVCA Chairman
Tim Ellis said surveying resi-
dents who live in that area is a
critical first step.
"It's good for us to be
involved, but we need to know
. how the people 'in the
neighborhood really feel about
it," Ellis said Monday,
"I dolh't want to-get some-
thing started f tihe resideh'Its
don't want it."

Panel suggests changes in FHSAA penalties

A Legislature-appointed task
force studying illegal recruiting
of high school athletes told
Gov. Jeb Bush this month that
penalties should focus more on
the individuals who engage in
recruiting violations instead of
the school itself.
A report published this
month recommends that
penalties imposed by the
Florida High School Athletic
Association iFHSAAl be modi-
fied %(o that "coaches who are
found guilty of illegal recruit-
ing not be allowed to coach in
any event, competition, game
or match between two or more
FHSAA member schools."
This comes just a month
after the FHSLAA slapped Nease
High School with $20,000 in
fines and six years of restrictive

probatlin -for violating hiles6
that prohibit giving induce-
ments to attract or keep ath-
letes at a school.
Although the FHSAA con-
cluded that the football player
from out-of-state was not
recruited, it said that one
coach found work for the boy's
father and another coach gave
rides to the boy to and from
school and lived in the same
apartment as the boy and his
The two volunteer, adjunct
coaches involved, Wesley
Haynes and Kenneth Fasnacht,
were fired by the school short-
ly after Nease was sanctioned.
Many Nease parents have
complained that the sanctions
are unfair because they punish
the entire Nease athletic pro-
gram and, consequently, stu-
dents who were not involved
in the violations.

At least one parent of ele-
mentary school children com-
plained at a town hall meeting
this month that her children
will bear an unfair burden
years from now when they are
zoned for Nease.
According to the recruiting
task force report, there have
been 35 recruiting violations
involving 39 individuals in the
past nine years.
More than half 21 of
those individuals were coaches
and one was a former coach,
the report said. Eight were
school employees such as
administrators and athletic
directors; six were parents; two
were boosters and alumni, and
one was a private foreign
exchange student organiza-

"Many task force members
believed the penalties would be
more effective at preventing

recruiting if directed specifical-
ly at the individuals who com-
mit the violations," the report
However. the report noted
that such penalties would have
to be explored carefully "to
ensure that the
employee/employer relation-
ship was not usurped," because
the coaches are employed by
the school board or school -
not the FHSAA.
The report concluded that
any penalties imposed on
coaches could not be related to
the coaches' terms of employ-
ment with the school or school
The former Nease coaches
have appealed the findings of
the FHSAA.

(MSD) trustee, updated the
PVCA board Monday night on
how the sidewalk in the 800 to
1000 block of the boulevard is
The sidewalk will stretch for
about a quarter mile along 26
households, most of which
have contributed more than
$700 a piece for a total of about
$18,5i00, according to Crane.
In August, the MSD agreed to
contribute $5,000 for the side-
walk, which Southern Home
Exterior Design Inc. said it
would build for-$17,490.
But in October the project
hit a snag, as MSD trustees
attempted to coordinate with
St. Johns County on the proj-
According to Pres Tompkins
Jr., a county engineer, the side-
walk must comply with federal
standards established by the
American Disabilities Act'..
Those standards require the
sidewalk to be increased from 4
to 6 inches in thickness with
ramps that rise no more than 6
inches every 6 feet, Tompkins
said Tuesday.
Furthermore, the downward
slope of the driveways along
the boulevard cannot exceed a
2 percent grade, he said. ,


Sidewalks like those on Ponte Vedra Boulevard north of Corona
Road (above left) are proposed just south of the Duval County
line, where lawns meet the road as they do further south (right).

Library chief cleared of fraud

An election fraud complaint
that was filed in September
against St. lohns County
Library Director Mary Jane
Little was dismissed in
November due to a lack of evi-
dence that would "warrant a
criminal prosecution."
Investigators with the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement looked into the
complaint and found no
* criminal predicate," according
to several letters within, the
case file.
The complaint was filed by
Ponte Vedra Beach Branch
Library manager Mary
Thomas, who claimed that
Little unethically solicited sig-
natures from library employees
on June 5 for a petition that
would allow then-
Commissioner Karen Stern to
run for reelection without pay-
ing a filing fee.
Stern ended up paying the
$3.371.82 fee on July 17,
according to the St. Johns
County Supervisor of Elections
Web site.
Thomas said Little visited
the library in Ponte Vedra in a
county car and was still on the

clock as a county employee.
She said in the complaint
that Little removed her St.
Johns County name tag, "indi-
cating that she knew she
wasn't supposed to be doing
this in her capacity as a county'
employee, or in a public build-
Thomas said four other
members of the library staff
signed the petition "grudging-
ly" and "only out of fear of los-
ing their jobs."
"I believe that she was there
[at the library] for the sole pur-
pose of campaigning for Karen
Stern. I felt pressured to get her
what she wanted," Thomas
said in the complaint.
According to the FDLE's case
file, Thomas' complaint alleges
violations of two different sec-
tions of Florida statutes. One of
those falls under the jurisdic-
tion of the Florida Commission
on Ethics, and a letter to
Thomas dated Sept. 12 directs
her to contact the commis-
sion's director, Bonnie
Thomas confirmed in an
interview Tuesday that she did
what the FDLE directed her to
do, and a copy of her com-
plaint indicates that she did

file a complaint with the Ethics
Thomas offered no further
comments Tuesday.
Kay Starling, complaint coor-
dinator for the Commission on
Ethics, said Tuesday that there
is no record of the complaint
in the commission's public
However, complaints do not
become public record until the
commission rules on them in a
private hearing, she said.
Starling would not confirm
whether the commission has
received or has given the com-
plaint a hearing.
Little said in an interview
Tuesday that she was not aware
of any other complaints filed
with different state agencies.
She said she was pleased
with the outcome of the FDLE
investigation and supports any
employee's right to file such
Thomas remains as branch
manager and Little said she
still works closely with her.
"I don't feel any awkward-
ness there," Little said, adding
that their relationship is strict-
ly professional.

that the coaches were a part of

Too many rules hurt citizens

To the editor
The' Neptune Beach City
Council is considering further,
encroachment on property.
owners rights. First it was taking
the tree trimming/cutting rights
from home owners, now it's
attempting to regulate the
'building of docks/walkways by
home owners on their property.
The building of docks is already,
regulated by The Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection, the U.S.Army Corps
of Engineers and the St. Johns.

District. A permit is required.-
Further, Riparian Water
Rights grant property owners
,whose property is adjacent to a
body of water the right to inke'
reasonable use of it....including
the right to wharf out to a point
of navigability; the right to erect.
structures such as docks, piers,
and boat lifts; and the right to:
use the water for domestic pur-
poses. Riparian Rights also
depend upon "reasonable use"
as it relates to other riparian
owners to ensure that the rights
of one riparian owner are
weighed fairly and equitably
with rights of adjacent riparian
The fear of a marina scare tac-
tic was stated by a councilman.
That smoke screen won't work
as marinas are also regulated by
Federal and State laws. Now fear
of blocking the. scenic view of
the waterway from the Kings
Road Bridge is being used. All
docks/walkways to the east of
the bridge are at the level of the
top of the marsh grass and
blend in favorably with the
marsh environment. People do
not stop on Kings Road to view
the scenic marsh..... it is not a,
tourist attraction, and....... it
would be' obstructing traffic.
which of course is against the'
law. What is common in other
Florida waterfront property sites
should be no different in

Neptune Beach.
SIGNS, cluttering both sides of
Kings Road near the bridge, very
tacky and trashy looking for the
environmentally sensitive peo-
ple and others. There are other
ways to prevent parking that are
less obtrusive.
,in discussing this with several
council members all they would
say was "something had to be
done", but. totally, clueless of
"what" had to be done,
and"why', other than scenic
view which is a v'ery shallow
and weak excuse q c.sidering
existing federal and s ate5xegul -
tions and the blending in with
the marsh environment of.
docks/walkways already in
place. Looks like a big power
play for the Neptune Beach gov-
ernment power brokers....
Control, Control, Control. The
Neptune Beach City Attomey is
expected to be involved in these
matters and provide guidance to
the council, not a rubberstamp.
If the city wants to require a
"Permit" for construction....
fine,... lust don't go beyond
what is already required by fed-
eral and state laws. This permit
could be additional income for
'the city and picked up at City
Hall. Citizens should not be
required to go before the coun-
cil to get permission to do some-
thing that is their constitutional
and legal right.
Lawyer tees associated with
citizens to ensure these rights
should be paid for/reimbursed
by the cit.y.
Government for the people
and by the people...... The coun-
cil is elected by the citizens, paid
by the citizens, and should work"
FOR the citizens.

It's time to celebrate our many

differences and religious freedom

I had lunch with Billy
Emmett the other day. Hadn't
seen him but once since he,
and I graduated' from high
school in 1958. That, you
'know, was back when folks'
were more tolerant of each
other's religious beliefs.
Or were they? ,
Sure, we had devotionals
during homeroom, and some-
body usually was called on to,
pray. In our class, it was often
Billy Emmett, now the Rev.
Billy Emmett, retired after a
long career in the ministry.
Everybody knew then that
Billy would be a preacher.
As you might have expected,
our school was all white, near-
ly all Protestant and mostly
Baptists and Methodists. If we
had a kid of the Jewish faith,
none of us knew who he was. I
remember just one Catholic
student. There was no cream at
the top of our milk. We were
homogeneous to a fault.
So no one objected when
Mrs. Rogers tead the third
chapter of Ecclesiastes for the
27th time, even though we all
suspected she had an ulterior
motive as she raised her voice
just a little when she said, "a
time to keep silence and a time
to speak." And no one objected
when Billy prayed "in Christ's
But then schools and the

nation changed and became
more diverse, and some people
objected, saying the state must
not sanction a particular reli-
gion in public schools. The
U.S. Supreme Court outlawed
public school-sponsored
prayer, and those regular devo-
tionals, as we knew them,
faded away.
Most people, I think, under-
stood the court's ruling. Later,
as a parent, I thought of it this
way: It is important that the
teachers or school officials
directing devotionals in school
embrace pretty much the same
faith my family and I embrace.
But I shouldn't depend on
them to teach our daughters
about God anyway. That was
my job and the church's.
But then, as human beings
are wont to do, we overreacted.

'Twas the

Night Before
Christmas in
Bubba's World

aturday night I got a call
from my old buddy, Bubba
LJr., in Palatkey, as he calls
it. "Hoyle, I've re-written the
words' to 'Twas the Night

of stuff in that original version
that folks around these parts
can't relate to!"
Bubba went on to tell me
that; he thought the classic

e also thought that "Mama wear-

S Suddenly I. heard Bubba's

Read this monthly feature for your own Home Improvement Projects.

With home heating bills smoldering
through the roof, it's no wonder that many
homeowners are contemplating a wood
burning stove to help handle some or all of
their home heating needs. Firewood is
abundant and inexpensive in many parts
of the country, and technological advance-
ments have made woodstoves and other
wood burning appliances safer and more
efficient than ever. ,
Unfortunately, wood burning appliances
still pose a danger if common sense safety
precautions are ignored. Here's a quick look
at some key steps you can take to reduce
the likelihood of a fire.
Find A Professional Installer
Few homeowners have. the technical
"know-how" to properly install a wood-
stove, fireplace insert or other wood bum-
ing appliance, and fewer still understand all

Safety Tips
of the pertinent building code require-
ments in their community. For example,
clearances between the wood burning
appliance, the venting system and any
combustible materials above, below or
beside the appliance are critical. What's
more, installation errors in a wood burning
appliance rarely prevent it from "working."
This can all too easily-leave a homeowner
with a false sense of security-until it's too
Learn How To Bumrn
Before the installer leaves, ask him or her
to show \ou how to use your wood burner.
Include all family members in the disctis
sion, if possible, and use this opportunity
to set strict rules about who is permitted to
operate the new appliance. Much of what.
you learn will be. specific to the make and
model of the wood burning appliance you
buy. Other safety tips will be more general
in nature, but are every bit as important:
Keep a properly maintained fire extin-
guisher nearby at all times.. .
Move combustible items as far away
from the wood burner as possible.
Use only clean paper, newsprint and
dry kindling to start a fire. Never use an
accelerant like gasoline, kerosene or lighter
Bum seasoned wood only. Wet or green
logs may cause a combustible residue to
build up inside your chimney.
Never bum trash or garbage in your
wood burner.
Close the door of your wood burning
appliance as soon as it's lit and immediate-
ly after loading new logs.
Talk to your local file department. They
may be able to offer additional information
about burning wood safely, and they may
be able to provide additional information
about local ordinances that. affect when
you can use your wood burner.-
Follow Maintenance Guidelines
Make sure you read and follow the main-
tenance guidelines provided with your

Daughter reconnects

with Donald Ray saga

D .ebi Baker was not
quite 2 years old when
her father, Rhodes
Wylie, was lost at sea in I'
1957, the victim of a tragic
shrimp boat sinking off
Ponte Vedra Beach.
For years, Baker searched
the Internet for any mention
of his death, desperately try-
ing to learn details of a
tragedy that cast a-dark shad-
ow over her family.
Last month her search led
her to an article I did in May
2005: "Requiem for'the
Donald Ray."
Rhodes Wylie was the skip-
per of the ill-fated Donald
Ray, a Mayport shrimp boat
that sank in high seas on
March 8, 1957.
Wylie, 26, and two.other.
Mayport fishermen, John
Gavagan, 35, and Melvin
"Sweet Pea" Singleton, 4l,
went down with the boat.
Their bodies were never
Wylie's wife, Beulah, was
pregnant at the time with
the coupe's second child, a
boy. She also had a 9-year-
old son, Donald Ray, from a
previous marriage.
After the incident, Baker's
mother married a Mayport
sailor and moved to Long
Beach, Calif., but she never
got over Wylie's death.
"She remarried out of des-
peration and loneliness. It
was a painful and sad life for
her," Baker said in a recent e-
mail from her Valencia,
Calif., home.
"Unfortunately, because of
her sadness and depression,
and my abusive_ alcoholic
stepfather's jealousy, we
weren't given much informa-
tion about my father or
opportunity to grieve."
Baker's mother died of can--
cer 20 years ago, and,
according to her daughter,
"never stopped grieving until
the day she died."
The tragedy also affected
Baker's younger brother,
Rhodes Wylie Jr., who died
at age 39 on the anniversary
of his father's death from
what she believes was a
depression-induced drug
Baker lost touch with her
Florida relatives years ago
and a disconnect continues


to this day. \When she
learned that an article about
the Donald Ray sinking had
been published, she asked
for a copy and I quickly
obliged; .
"I'm sure it would be hard
for most people to under-
stand, but at 51 years old I
still cry when I think of the
tragedy of my family,"
Baker's e-mail said. "This is
not just for idle curiosity. I
need to hold something that
acknowledges the existence
of a man I loved."
A day before Thanksgiving,
Baker said in an e-mail that
she had received copies of
the article I sent her.
The 2,700-word stpry was
accompanied by eight pho-
tos, including an image of
Baker's smiling father on his
older brother's boat with the
bow of the Donald Ray in
the background.
"My son looks just like my
dad," Baker said in a phone
interview before
"My extended family
knows so little about my
dad. This has come at a per-
fect time to share. Thank
you. for. taking an interest in
this. in-the first place'. t.,
affected so Tnany lives."
Bo VWylie of Atlantic
Beach, who helped me
immensely with the story in '
2005 and provided the only
photo of Rhodes \Vylie and
the Donald Ray, died last
December of cancer. He is
buried in Tillotson's
Cemetery off Gir-in Road,
near a grave that bares the
name but not the body -
of Rhodes W\ylie.

F or almost 10 years, two
local women, Nancy
Hibben of Jacksonville
Beach and Sunny Brooks of
Ponte Vedra -Beach, have
hosted an annual Christmas
Cookie Exchange.
From the beginning, the
women had a dual purpose
in mind for their party.
They wanted to have ,a fun
holiday social event and
they hoped to raise funds for
a local charity, Hibben said.
Guests are asked to bring
four dozen cookies wrapped
in packages of one dozen
each. They in turn are wel-

tion of cookies from the

only, the golf cart and its laIger -.

wave of the future and soon will
conquer the world, according to
Ted Jackrel, Gator Motor UVLN l
sales manager.
"At least that's what we believe
here, and we've established our
business based on that fact," he
said. "W\Ve provide businesses arid

UViM are shuttles and delivery- golf carts and electric veh
type vehicles for businesses and tric-powered vehicles they
community usesthat can carry
from two to 15 people for service-related fields without
using an ounce of gasoline while doing so.
"We opened Gator Motor UVMI to take advantage of
what we believe is a growing trend toward the use of elec-
tric-powered vehicles, with the goal to make their use and
operation as easy as operating a conventional automobile
or truck," Jackrel said.
Gator Motor UVM sells three distinct products to both
individual and commercial buyers. The first is the tradi-
tional golf cart capable of traveling up to 13 miles per
hour that can be used on private property such as golf
The second is a street-legal golf cart that can travel
from 20 to 25 miles per hour- on certain public roads. "By
federal law, all styles of 'street legal' vehicles must travel
between 20 and 25 miles per hour and have specific safety.
features including a horn, brake lights, driver side mirrors,
headlights, parking brakes, tail lights, seat belts,' signals
and windshields," Jackrel said. "Also required by federal
law is a 17-digit VIN number you can use to get a license
plate and registration from the Department of Motor
The third category,is a "real upgrade" from the golf cart
category, according to Jackrel.. "It's what we call our
Electro-Bubble Buddy a little electric car that is decked:
out with items like AM/FM CD players and speakers, flip-
down TVs so you can go to a football game and watch the
pre-game show on the TV, a digitized dash board, mag

"We're even building some units for die-hard football
fans in the colors of your favorite team, including the.

businesses and private individuals anything from two-

property in areas conducive to low-speed vehicles," Jackrel
said. "Our Delivery-Buddy vehicle even has an insulated
back box that could be used to deliver piping-hot pizza or
other applications such as room service or housekeeping
duties in a resort setting."
"According to federal statistics, 50 percent of a person's
errands are within 10 minutes of travel, so it's not always
necessary to turn to a gasoline-powered vehicle to run
errands," Jackrel said. "Electric-type vehicles can be used in
those applications as well, whether you're going to the
restaurant, running your daily errands or picking up your
kids. Everywhere there is a need for a car, there's an appli-
cation for electric-style cars."
The golf cart, shuttle and 'Electro-Bubble Buddy are eco-
nomical and practical answers to most short-term trans-
portation needs, he said. "It takes six hours to achieve full
charge at a cost of 50 cents so just plug it in when you
finish your day and you'll be ready to go the next morn-
ing," Jackrel added. "It's powered by a 48-volt system con-
taining eight 6-volt deep cycle batteries that will recharge
on 110-volt house current, and all of our packages contain
a smart charger that simplifies this process, so all you do is
plug it in."
Gator Motor UVNI offers both buying and leasing plans

Panthers fall in Akers tournament final


A couple of weeks ago, Nease
head coach Dave Silverberg said
the way his team performed in
the Michelle Akers girls soccer
tournament would serve as a
good indicator of how ready
the Panthers are for the bal-
ance of the regular season and
upcoming playoffs.
The Panthers made Monday
night's championship match of
the Akers
tournament ..
in Orlando,
but fell 2-1 to
Lake Mary..
The teams '-

forward Rachel Brown was
named offensive NMIP while
Nease's Meagan Thomas picked
up defensive MVP honors.
The Akers event featured sev-
eral 2005 state championship
teams, along with a number of
others that finished second or
third in their classifications.
Nease, the two-time defend-
ing Class 4A state champs,
scored a 2-0 opening round vic-
tory over Oviedo last Friday to
advance in the winners' brack-
et. Stacey Hanburry headed in a
corner kick by Kristen Hoover
about 10 minutes into the
game to give the Panthers a
one-goal lead.
About 29 minutes later,
Hoover and Hanburry connect-
ed again on the same type of
play to secure Nease's victory.
"Not our best, but we did
what we had to do," Silverberg
told the Orlando Sentinel.
"They were a physical team and
made us earn everything."
Defense, which has been the
Panthers' song suit for most
of the regular season, played a
prominent role in Friday's win.
Goalkeeper Catherine
O'Donnell saved two good
Lions chances in the first half,

But Nease will also get a shot
at avenging its only loss of the
season on Saturday, Jan. 6 when
the team travels to Lake Man.
After that, a home game
against Bolles on Jan. 9 wraps
up the regular-season slate
before distinct play begins
Tuesday, Jan. 16. The district
tournament will take place at
St. Augustine and conclude
with a championship game
Friday, Jan. 19.
Yet despite a stellar season-
long campaign, Silverberg
knows his squad will only be
graded on how it performs in
the postseason.
"I feel we have the poten-
tial," the coach said when
asked if his current crop of
Panthers has that champi-
onship look. "Right now we're
not playing nearly the way we
have to play if we want to
reach our goal."
But Silverberg said he's still
experimenting with players'
roles and will have a better
grasp of his team's potential as
the postseason nears.
"Honestly," he said, "when I
look at it right now, we can lose
our first playoff game or we can
win the state."

Jaguars QB David Garrard (9) threw three interceptions and lost
a'fumble in Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Tennessee Titans.

bag from Jacksonville again?
The reason is simple. The
Titans wanted Sunday's game
more than the Jaguars did.
The Jeff Fisher gang was hot
and after the shellacking it
took here earlier this season,
revenge was boiling in the
players' veins.
Throughout last week, sto-
ries out of Nashville kept men-
tioning that fact.-
In the Jaguars locker room,
on the other hand, one would
never know there was any fear
of retribution. At least in the
days preceding Sunday's con-
"Niaw," one player told us,
"they might be hot now, but
we took 'em earlier and we'll
do it again.".
From Sunday's stats, which-
say that the Jaguars won, one
would believe that except
the stats don't always put
points on the board. One
hates to use the word "choke,"
but that's about what hap-
pened to the boys wearing
Teal and Black.
Jacksonville tried to give the
game away and succeeded.
You might say the Jaguars
offense scored 31 points 17

for themselves and a generous
14 for Tennessee. That was a
result of giving the Titans
three interceptions and an
untimely fumble.
Sure, the 24-17 score doesn't
tell the whole story. Several
"what-ifs" tell it better.
What if Fred Taylor's tender
hamstring hadn't give way on
his 35-yard run that seemed
destined to end with a touch-
down?: Instead it was just a
nice run instead of six points.
That play alone might have
turned the game around.
It also took Taylor out of
commission for the rest of the
day. That. was a devastating
loss for Del Rio's boys.

Marshall Universit players remembered

SA never the Jags win,
j/j it seems people in our,
V ity are simply in a
betterimood come Monday.
Jacksonville's emotions often
rise and fall with our team.
Folks tend to make Jaguars
games a part of their weekend,
and feel they have some bond
with the Jags.
Now imagine that it all sud-
denly disappeared. Imagine
that while traveling to say,
Denver, there was a terrible
crash and all on board the
Jaguars plane were killed in the
accident. All of the players. All
of the coaches. The medical
staff and the trainers.
Can you imagine? Think of
the grief that the families
would have, and that this area
as a whole would feel as well. ,
Unfortunately this very situa-
tion happened in Huntington,
W.Va. over 35 years ago. The
year was 1970 and the Marshall
University Thundering Herd
was returning from Greenville,
N.C. where they had lost to
East Carolina University.
It was a raim)n and windy
night and the plane was'
approaching the Tri-State
Airport on the West Virginia
border. At 7:42 p.m., on
.descent, the plane clipped the
top of the trees, and slammed
into the Appalachian hillside.
The plane burst into flames
and all 7"5 on board were killed.
Along with the coaches and
players who died, lost Were four'
physicians, a city councilman,
a local car dealer, the local .
radio announcer, and several
prominent businessmen. This
remains the worse disaster ever

involving an American sports
Fate has a funny way of deal-
ing people in and out of
tragedy. Assistant coach Red,
Dawson made the trip to
Greenville with the tei m by
plane, but then decided to
drive back with another assis-

tanit to make some recruiting
visits. The Thundering Herd,
team captain, Nate Ruffin, had
stayed behind on campus due
to a right arm injury. The
team's leading rusher, Arthur
Harris [r. was thrilled that his
dad had made the trip along
with the team.
Room was available to Mr.
Harris Sr. only because an assis-
tant coach had given up his
seat. Mrs. Harris lost her son
and husband suddenly on. that
terrible night.
There are many stories relat-
ed to the crash and the unenvi-
able task of rebuilding the foot-
ball program after the tragedy.
This is the subject of the movie,

in theaters nationwide on
December 22.

after the crash. With few expe-

only two of its 10 games that
year- including an upset win
