Buses hit businesses


Shuttle buses going to and
from the Players
Championship in Ponte
Vedra Beach may be a con-
venience for tournament-
goers, but some Ponte Vedra
Beach business owners say the
buses may be carrying away
some of their profits.
The free shuttle buses are
offered to and from free park-
ing at the University of North
Florida Thursday through
Sunday of tournament week,
which is May 5 to 11.
UNF parking, formerly used
as a back-up if rain flooded
the main parking lot off
County Road 210, is now rou-
tinely offered, and some busi-
ness owners say that hurts.
"The shuttling [last year]
was very obvious to those of
us here at Players Cafe," said
Don Stanton, owner of the
breakfast-and-lunch restau-
rant off Solana Road in the
Winn-Dixie shopping center.
"You've got to imagine,
every time a bus goes by,
there's one or two who may
have come into Players Cafe."
Stanton said Tuesday his
business was off 20 percent
during the 2007 Players com-
pared with 2006. He said he
didn't think the drop in busi-
ness was due to the change in

March to May.
"Our two busiest days of
the year are TPC Sunday and
the Florida-Georgia weekend
Sunday," said Stanton.
"Last year, TPC Sunday was-
n't even close to our busiest,

not even in the top 10. For us,
breakfast and lunch only,
that's when the tournament is
going on. When people park a
few miles away, it's not help-
ing us."

"How many are you looking

Doug Crane suggested sending
a mass e-mail encouraging MSD
residents to apply. No decision
was made.
Both of the applicants being
considered are relative new-
comers to Ponte Vedra Beach,
having moved from Virginia.

John Wegl, 65, retired after 20
years with the Marine Corps
and from his own consulting
firm, has been a resident of
Ponte Vedra Boulevard since
2003, moving from Springfield,
Va., according to his applica-
tion, which was received Feb.
28 by the governor's appoint-
ments office.
Gordon Blalock, 66, is a jet
broker who has lived on San
Juan Drive since 2005, moving
from Arlington, Va., according
to his application, which was
received April 9 by the appoint-
iments office.
Although the MSD board has
been operating for months with
its five remaining trustees,
Trustee Rob Becker said last
week he will be unable to
.attend the May meeting, leav-
ing no leeway for getting a quo-

rum of four trustees.
Complicating the issue is the
fact that four of the seven MSD
seats are up for election this
year only one of the two
vacancies is among them -
and one of those three remain-
ing trustees cannot run for
reelection. As of Tuesday, no
one had filed to run for the
MSD seats.
Trustees, who meet monthly
at the Ponte Vedra Beach
Branch Library, are limited to
two consecutive four-year
One of the four'seats up for
election was left vacant when
William Donovan resigned in
November. Donovan had been
appointed to fill a vacancy.
The other three seats are held
by Rob Becker, who cannot run
because of term limits,

Jurenovich, who was elected in
2004, and Bob Reesh.
Reesh was originally appoint-
ed to fill an MSD vacancy then
was elected to his present seat
in 2004.

four is the seat left vacant by
the resignation of Curtis Long,
who was elected in 2006. Both
Long and Donovan resigned
because they moved outside the
Long's seat is tip for election
again in 2010, so an appoint-
ment to that seat would be for
the remainder of that term.
The other two seats up for
election in 2010 are held by
Crane, who ran in 2006 after
being appointed to fill a vacan-
cy, and Al Hollon, who ran in
2002 and 2006 so would be
termed out.

Nease relay loses life for i ,

failure to communicate

After months of planning
the annual Relay for Life to be
held at Nease High School,
the event was abruptly can-
celed, apparently because of
communication problems
between the American Cancer
Society and the Nease admin-
The overnight team event,
which was to be held for the
fourth consecutive year May
17 to 18 to raise money for
cancer research, was canceled
due to a "lack of communica-
tion" between event organiz-
ers and school administrators,
according to Brenda Johnson,
the St. Johns County commu-
nity representative for the

American Cancer Society.
"It was due to circum-
stances beyond the control of
the American Cancer Society,"
Johnson said in a telephone
interview this week.
Volunteers who were work-
ing with the school were
given inconsistent informa-
tion from various faculty
members while trying to coor-
dinate the event, Johnson
She explained that some
volunteers were told by facul-
ty that the school's principal,
Linda Thomson, "never told
us we were doing relay."
"It really was out of our
control," Johnson said. "We
couldn't move forward with
an event when we were told
on three different occasions

by three different people that
Dr. Thomson said the event is
not taking place," she said.
Thomson, however, said in
a telephone message Tuesday
that the school was "more
than happy to host the event,
but because of some miscom-
munication, they canceled
it." St. Johns County district
schools are on spring break
this week.
"This was a difficult situa-
tion from the get-go,"
Johnson said, adding that the
school had another event
scheduled the same day as the
Relay for Life was supposed to
take place.
Johnson said Nease stu-
dents can still participate in

These "crafty ladies," all
employees of the Beaches
Branch Library, stand in

Yes, it's a headache, but what type is it exactly?

In today's world, almost
anything could give a person
a headache. The term
"headache" is used and often
overused to describe a reac-
tion to life's general frustra-
tions. For those people who
suffer from headache related
pain, identifying it as "I have
a headache" is not specific
enough to find relief. In order
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 the 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,
National Headache
Foundation and practicing
physician. "However, it is
best to make an appointment
with your healthcare profes-
srtoniilt o obfaihf' an accurate
diagnosis and to establish the
appropriate treatment plan."
Healthcare professionals
can educate the 41% of survey
respondents who reported not
knowing that medication and
non-medication treatment
options are available for
headache symptoms. Thirty-
eight percent of respondents
use the simplest non-medica-
tion treatment available to
alleviate their headaches:
sleep. Massage is another
example of a non-traditional
treatment option used by 16%
of the survey participants.
Healthcare professionals may
also recommend medication
treatments such as the over-
the-counter pain relievers
used by 48% of respondents
or prescription medications
used by 15% of the respon-

Morgan Freeman lends voice

to The Players Championship

Academy Award and
Golden Globe winner
Morgan Freeman has lent his
recognizable voice to six his-
torical vignettes that will air
during next month's Player
Championship. He'll also
read taglines for the tourna-
ment's promotional PSAs,
which will run within PGA
Tour event telecasts through
The Players.
In the vignettes, Freeman
narrates memorable
moments in Players history,
that feature Tiger Woods,
David Duval, Vijay Singh,
Phil Mickelson, Davis Love
III and former PGA Tour
Commissioner Deane Beman.
The vignettes debut on
Thursday, May 8, during Golf
Channel's coverage of first-
round action, and continue
through Friday's telecast and
NBC's coverage on Saturday
and Sunday.
Freeman, an avid golfer,
plays out of TPC Southwind
in Memphis, Tenn., and
recorded the voice-overs in
New York while rehearsing

for his role in "The Country
Girl," which also stars
Frances McDormand and
opened on Broadway on April
"Mr. Freeman was extreme-
ly gracious with his time and
we couldn't be happier with
the results," said Kent Simon,
PGA Tour vice president,
advertising. "You only have
to spend a few moments with
him to learn that he loves
golf, and we,are very privi-
leged to have his unmistak-
able voice associated with
The Players."
The Players Championship
annually combines the best
field in golf with the world-
class venue that is The
Players Stadium Course at
TPC Sawgrass.
Proceeds from The Players
benefit Northeast Florida
charities. Since 1977, when
The Players Championship
moved to Ponte Vedra, more
than $28 million has been
contributed to Northeast
Florida charities, including
$2.8 million in 2007.

28% of the survey partici-
pants suffer from Chronic
Daily headache
23% of respondents
reported suffering from Sinus
The 21% of survey respon-
dents who reported not know-
ing what type of headache
they suffer from represent
headache sufferers nation-
wide who could benefit from
prevention and treatment
options that come from deter-
mining their headache type.

teristics of common
headaches can help keep you

keep track of your symptoms
which you can share with
your healthcare professional.

Characteristics of
Common Headaches:
Migraine headache is char-
acterized by any or all of the
following symptoms: pulsat-
ing or throbbing pain typical-
ly on one side df the head,
nausea or vomiting, sensitivi-
ty to light or sound, and visu-
al disturbances. The attacks
may last four to 72 hours.
Tension-type headache is
the most common form of
headache with symptoms of

dull, aching, and non-pulsat-
ing pain that affect both sides
of the head and can vary in
frequency and severity.
Chronic Daily Headache is
often characterized by a
headache that occurs more
than 15 days a month for a
period of at least three
Sinus headache symptoms
may include tenderness over
the sinus, a deep dull ache
exaggerated by head move-
ments or straining accompa-
nied by nasal discharge, ear
sensation or fullness, and
facial swelling.

It's 'in the soul'
Student artists came from as far away as North Carolina and paid
up to $675 each to attend a weeklong seminar at the Cultural
Center at Ponte Vedra Beach last week. The teacher was Ann
Kenyon of Mandarin, who said she paints every day and has done
so "all my life." But the seminar, which cost $600 for members of
the Cultural Center and $675 for nonmembers, was about draw-
ing, rather than painting. "The whole week is about drawing, which
is a foundation to all art," said Kenyon, a Jacksonville native.
"Most people say, 'Ooh, we don't want to draw we want to
make a pretty painting.' I can't emphasize enough that's the foun-
dation to everything we do in art." Among Kenyon's 10 students
last week was Alice Thorp, who came from her home in Rocky
Mount, N.C., and stayed with friends in Ponte Vedra Beach for the
week. Also part of the class were two men, Shep Spink of Ponte
Vedra Beach and Vasant Bhide, a retired architect who lives near
Kenyon in Mandarin and has long known her family. "Most archi-
tects have fine arts in their soul," Bhide said. "We're used to hold-

Relay organizers 'upset'
P- RELAY, from A-1

the Relay for Life events at Bartram
Trail High in Northwest St. Johns
County and at St. Augustine High
"The whole Nease community
that was involved in relay is very
positive. They're upset that this
happened, but they're determined
to put a positive [spin] on it,"
Johnson said.

Johnson also emphasized that the
American Cancer Society does not
want to "point fingers" or "sever
ties" with the school.
Relay for Life is a nationwide
annual fund-raising event in which
participants form teams and walk
around a track to raise money for
cancer research, according to the
Relay for Life Web site.

Popularity of FMS Idol contest

forces move to bigger venue

Fletcher Middle School's fund-rais-
ing FMS Idol rolls on and this year's
program rolled on over April 17 to
the Fletcher High School auditorium,
where Hayley Hawkinberry was the
First runner-up for FMS Idol 2008
was Kaley Carter, also last year's first
runner-up to Abbie Bell. Second run-
ner-up was Angela Inciong.
Teachers Lindsay Layendecker
[playing judge Paula Abdul from TV's
hit American Idol] and Chris Merritt
[as Idol judge Simon Cowell], joined
by Jacksonville Beach police officer
Keith Shackleford [Idol's Randy
Jackson], served as judges in a pro-
gram hosted by Mark McGiveron
[spoofing Idol's host Ryan Seacrest].
Hawkinberry was chosen by the audi-
ence. On the program handed to all
attendees was a voting chit.
While no longer the FMS school
resource officer, Shackleford, who
has been promoted, came back
because "I just love doing it for the
kids, just seeing their reaction, letting
them know that I'm not always just
an officer. I'm human. I like to have
fun, too."
Shackleford said the judges were
looking for what the audience was
looking for.
"We're looking for somebody who's
got it together, understands the song,
really delivers the song, attitude.
We're looking for all of that."
The move to Fletcher High was due
to the fact that while a crowd of 375
attended last year's event, an addi-
tional 100 people couldn't get into
the school's cafeteria.
The first event was held in the
spring of 2005, after McGiveron, a
popular teacher at FMS, was diag-
nosed with leukemia. That event
raised $1,500-2,000 for him.
"It's very special to me,"
McGiveron said of the FMS Idols,

Left, seventh grader Hayley
Hawkinberry, who sings "Popular"
from "Wicked," wins the third FMS

"because, when it was held for the
first time, it was in my honor, to help
me with hospital bills, get through
chemotherapy that lasted 6-7
months. It's great to see the support
of the Fletcher Middle community
come out.
"It's very heartwarming to know
that it started because of me, but
now we get to put the proceeds
toward PTSA funds, let the different
grade levels have their 'grade play
days,' as they call them, their year-
end celebrations."
McGiveron said he's glad to be able
to have a role in FMS Idol.

Players has $150 million impact

- SHUTTLE, from A-1
Ron Cross, a longtime Tour
tournament director in his first
year as Players executive direc-
tor, said, "I can't comment on
business numbers. Certainly
they change."
Cross said the use of shuttle
buses is actually a good sign.
"My thought is that it's good
news for everyone because it
means the event is growing,"
said Cross. "We fill the parking
lot, as we always have, in addi-
tion to going off site [at UNF].
Parking in the [TPC] lot costs
$20 a day, $50 for the week. Or
there's free shuttle and free
parking at UNE."
The shuttle bus service has
also impacted business at
Woody's, Bogey Grille and
Mackenzie's, according to their
owners or managers.
Derek Prince, owner of Bogey
Grille on State Road A1A near
210, said that although busi-

ness was up during last year's
practice rounds, when parking
is free at the TPC lot, it
declined over the weekend.
"I did see a definite decline
Saturday and Sunday," Prince
"It affects some of the busi-
nesses because people are going
to jump back on the shuttle,
where normally they might
come out here and frequent
one of the restaurants," he said.
Prince said the change from
March to May was bad for busi-
ness, at least in part because
Players Saturday used to coin-
cide with March Madness.
"A lot of the spectators that
were over there would race over
here to find out what was going
on with basketball," he said.
Ron Hickson, manager of
Woody's, said the shuttle serv-

The Leader's Opinion

MSD needs trustees

The seven-member board of The Ponte Vedra
Municipal Services District has had two vacancies
since last December when two members moved out of
the MSD boundaries.
The MISD is an independent taxing authority pro-
\iding certain municipal services for the area-east of
A1A south to Corona Road, then south along both
sides of Ponte 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
two seats.
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 anon-partisan board,
one is a Democrat and the other a Republican.
According to forms filed with the governor's
appointment office, John Wegl is a retired Marine
who has a masters degree in administration. His past
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
time, each would be-elected without opposition. The
governor has the same choice.
It is time to fill the vacant positions on the MSD
Board of Trustees.

Letters to the editor:

Mayport Road will have problems

To the editor:
The decorated Mayport
Road will be a hazard, as well
as a constant inconvenience.
First, the inconvenience.
Many left turns will be elimi-
nated. If a driver wants to
turn left on to a blocked street,
call it Street B, he will have to
drive on to unblocked Street C
and make a U turn, or turn left
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
either. When they get to the
place to turn on to Street A,
they will drive obliquely to
Street B, in the direction of
oncoming traffic. Some times
they will make it; some times
they will crash head-on into
oncoming traffic.

Celebrate the grace and beauty of Atlant

To the editor:
I have been privy to your
beautiful coastal town for the
better part of a quarter centu-
ry. I met Atlantic Beach as a
very young woman. I was
introduced to [Atlantic
Beach] through the eyes of
my dearest friend, Frances
Szostek Beaver. She would
walk me along your beach,
picking up sea glass and shells
along the way. We would talk
as women friends do, for
hours upon hours...our back-
drop varied over time but
constants were always family,
friends and ocean sunsets
tumbling before us. Sunrises
painted with the signature
colors of our childhood. We
could see a Pennsylvania
autumn dancing across your
southern skies in crimsons,
golds and orange pinks.
When it came time for me
to leave Atlantic Beach, I
would remark about how
charmed life seemed in your
aquatic paradise. I would tell

Frannie, "I need to write a let-
ter to the editor about how
this town affects me." And
she would say, "Do it, Barb, I

So today I am writing.

instead I will surround myself
with her family and friends.

she left illness and pain
behind and surrendered to an
insidious cancer. She donned

Library Friends appreciate community su

To the editor:
The Friends of the Beaches
Branch Library would like to
thank the Beaches
Community for their over-
whelming, support of our
Spring Book Sale on April 11,
12 and 13. All of the money
raised will be used to improve
the beaches library's service to
the community. Throughout
the year it is a labor of love for
us to collect and sort the
books tha are donated to the
library. We pick up books daily
at the library and take them to
our storage area where once a
week our Sorting Crew organ-
izes them into categories and

boxes them for our spring and
autumn sales. The week before
each sale sees the FOBBL
members moving the boxes of
books in and setting up tables,
it is a grand sight when the
doors open to you. During the
year volunteers help shelf
books and serve on one of
four committees, member-
ship, programming, publicity
and noonbreak. Many of our
sponsored programs you may
have enjoyed.

Mayport Partnership loses key staff

A city of Jacksonville
employee who has worked
with the Mayport
Waterfront Partnership for
approximately nine years
will be reassigned.
Edward Lukacovic, the
partnership's program man-
ager, 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 downtown.
But, 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 rea-
son,,. .. ,,
Planning and
Development Director Brad
Thoburn said that the deci-
sion 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 exist-
ing resources," he said, cit-
ing budget cutbacks. "I just
couldn't justify the time
spent in [the Mayport]

The Partnership was
formed in 1997 as a joint
effort between the cities of
Jacksonville and Atlantic
Beach to "bring economic
revitalization to the eastern
shore area of Duval County."
Even though there will no
longer be a city of
Jacksonville staff member
working on behalf of the
Partnership, it can still act as
a city agency, Lukacovic
Thoburn also explained
that there was always the
understanding that the
Partnership would reach a
level of "self-sufficiency."
"The Partnership will be
able to survive without
him," Thoburn said.
But, some Partnership
members have suggested
Lukacovic was removed
from his position as project
manager as a political
maneuver by the city of
Jacksonville to make way for
a proposed cruise terminal
in the village.
"The purported first
affront will be to remove the
Project Manager assigned by
the City of Jacksonville
Planning and Development
Department from a three
day a week commitment to
the Mayport Waterfront
Partnership's endeavors to
economically develop and
preserve Mayport Village as
a working waterfront and
fishing village," said
Partnership Treasurer Carroll
Huffines in a Feb. 28 e-mail

to Jacksonville city officials.
"The alleged second
assault will be efforts to dis-
solve the Mayport
Waterfront Partnership,
thereby removing opposi-
tion by businesses and offi-
cials, and clearing the way
for the development of a
Cruise Ship Seaport Terminal
in Mayport Village by JAX-
But, Partnership Chair
David Fisher said that while
some believe that the elimi-
nation of a program manag-
er may be "political," the
group plans to continue
"business as usual."
"We've got a lot of educat-
ed people who know what
they're doing," he said.
Fisher added that the
Partnership has not received
any official notice from the
city of Jacksonville regard-
ing Lukacovic's reassign-
But, Thoburn said he is in
the process of drafting a let-
ter that will be sent to the
Lukacovic also said that
the city 'will no longer pay
for its portion of electricity
or phone services at the
Partnership office located at
4610 Ocean Street which is
shared with Hornblower
Marine Services.
Hornblower Marine oper-
ates the St. Johns River ferry,
which was taken over by the
Jacksonville Port Authority
in November.

Planner honored

Richard C. Prosser of
Jacksonville Beach is being
inducted next week as a fel-
low in the American Institute
of Certified Planners (AICP) at
the organization's national
conference in Las Vegas.
Prosser, retired from Prosser
Hallock, Jacksonville, where
he was longtime president, is
being honored .by the AICP
College of Fellows, which
"recognizes individuals
who've made exceptional
contributions to the planning
profession," AICP president
Graham Billingsley said in a
news release.
Election to the Fellowship
may be granted to planners
who have been longtime
members of AICP and have
demonstrated excellence in
professional practice, teach-
ing and mentoring, research,
community service, leader-
ship, and communication.
Altogether, 49 planners
from 22 states will be induct-
ed into the. AICP College of
Fellows at the ceremony.
Prosser is being named a
Fellow of AICP for individual
achievement during his 45-
year planning career.
Prosser was the principal
planner for many signature
projects and master-planned
communities in Northeast
Florida, "and he promoted
mixed-use and higher-density
development to maximize
open space and preserve natu-
ral resources," according to
the release.

Scholarship endowed
Prosser Hallock, a
Jacksonville-based consulting
firm providing planning,
engineering and landscape
architecture services, donated
a $58,000 endowed scholar-
ship to the University of
North Florida (UNF) in the
name of Azeb Tekie.
Tekie came into the United
States in the early 1970s from
Ethiopia where her parents
were imprisoned because of
their political affiliations.
One of eight children, she
helped several of her siblings

and other relatives immigrate
to the United States to seek
political asylum.
Tekie graduated UNF's civil
engineering program and put
her two sisters through school
at UNF as well.
Tekie died of complications
from pneumonia in 1998 at
age 45. Shortly after Tekie's
death, Prosser Hallock estab-
lished a charitable foundation
to fund scholarships to stu-
dents in her memory.
Tekie Foundation donations
were used to establish the
endowed scholarship, thereby
supporting UNF students pur-
suing a degree in civil engi-
neering. Prosser Hallock
organized golf tournaments
and other activities to raise
money. Clients and employ-
ees united year after year to
contribute to the foundation.
"The future scholarships
which will be awarded will
inspire deserving students to
follow Azeb Tekie's example
to use education as a way to
improve not only their own
lives, but those of others
whose lives they touch as
they progress in engineering
careers," said Stephan Nix,
director of the UNF School of

Instructor Rick Foster of the American Red Cross Volunteer Life Saving Corps goes over the finer points of manning a lifeguard
tower on a recent training day for the 2008 winter recruit class. The class graduates Saturday.

Recruits to cap three months of

training with arduous pool test
-s : :..-: i - : h . *y *- *

(Part eight of a series)

Huddled on the second
floor of the historic
Jacksonville Beach
lifeguard station this past
Sunday, six recruits with the
American Red Cross
Volunteer Life Saving Corps
listened intently as long-
time lifeguard David Stearns
gave them the benefit of his
An active member of the
Corps for the past 20 years
and a former instructor,
Stearns, 60, told the recruits
that Friday's dreaded pool
test at Fletcher High School
will be an ordeal they won't
soon forget.
"It's like suiting up for an
NFL game," Stearns, a 1964
Fletcher High graduate, said.
"It's designed to physical-
ly exhaust you, but the big
secret is don't give up."
The long-awaited and
course-defining pool test
will ascertain the rescue and
survival skills of each
recruit. Cloaked in secrecy,

Passing the pool test
was the single most
empowering moment in
my life. ... It's like suiting
up for an NFL game.

Dave Stearns,
former instructor

the event is closed to the
The hour-long test has
haunted recruits for years,
even old-timers such as
Stearns, who entered the
Corps in 1964 as a 125-
pound high school senior.
"I had convinced myself
that I would fail," he said.
Stearns remembers heav-
ing his guts out on the old
Atlantic Beach Hotel pool
deck and contemplating sur-
render before a lifeguard
picked him up and threw
him back into the fray.
"If it wasn't for George

Garcia, I wouldn't have
made it," Stearns told the
six recruits, who range in
age from 16 to 19.
"Passing the pool test was
the single most empowering
moment of my Life."
Garcia, now a life insur-
ance agent in Jacksonville
Beach, said he was one of
the smallest lifeguards in
the Corps when he helped
Stearns pass pool test in the
summer of 1964.
"I was 5-foot-3 and 120
pounds, but you take their
best shots and kept going,"
Garcia said.
"You get overwhelmed,
but the only way I was quit-
ting was if they pulled me
off the bottom of the pool."
Recruits are historically
leery of pool test. In 1998,
when Stearns was the recruit
instructor, two of his stu-
dents dropped the course
within days of graduation.
In 1997, a commodore, or
the elected leader of a
recruit class, quit the week
of pool test.
"You will be psyched out,"
Stearns said.
But pool test wasn't the

only thing the recruits were
stressing about on Sunday.
The six, Eric Bohn,
Monica Ruggiero, Kaity
Morris, Walley Meskel,
Catherine Woodcock and
Anthony Delossantos, began
their 12th and final week of
training by taking a 21-page
American Red Cross exam

ten test, the capstone of a
40-hour, first-respondeui
All the recruits scored a B

MacNeill on lookout for vegetarian recipes

Even though Donna
MacNeill's New Year's
resolution was "no
more recipes," the
Jacksonville Beach resident

has found keeping her reso-
lution has been difficult.
"I simply enjoy cooking
and love to try new recipes,"
she said.
Cooking has been part of
MacNeill's life since she was
a new bride with little expe-
rience in the kitchen. With
a few cookbooks to guide
her, MacNeill taught herself
to cook and bake.
Her recipe collection has

Donna MacNeill enjoys entertaining in her Jacksonville Beach

grown with more cookbooks
and recipes from magazines
and the internet. She also
has enjoyed attedning cook-
ing classes with friends and
uses some of the recipes
from the classes at home.

Classes at In the Kitchen,
formerly in Ponte Vedra,
were a favorite, she said.
For MacNeill, the ingredi-
ents and the ease of prepara-
tion are the best features of
newer recipes. She said that

it has been surprising how
often a dish requiring little
time to prepare can be even
better than a dish from an
older recipes that takes
hours to prepare.
Since two of her three
grown daughters are vegetar-
ians, MacNeill also looks for
new vegetarian recipes.
While this was a challenge
at first, she now has an
appreciation for the quality
of the vegetarian recipes
that are available. Many are
so good that the entire fami-
ly enjoys having vegetarian
dishes, she said.
The MacNeills moved to
Jacksonville Beach about
eight years ago after her
husband Harry retired from
the Veterans Administration.
The couple had lived in
Gainesville early in their
marriage while he was in
graduate school and also
lived in New England.


Famous photo almost

scrapped at news desk

Were it not for the quick
thinking of a veteran newspa-
per photographer and an
equally decisive news desk, .
one of most memorable pho-
tos in Jacksonville history
might have been second day
I was the editorial page edi-
tor of The Jacksonville Journal
in 1967 when staff photogra-
pher Rocco Morabito took the
award-winning photo known
as "The Kiss of Life."
We were used to Rocco tak-
ing good pictures, so it came
as no surprise when his shot
of a injured JEA lineman being
given mouth-to-mouth resus-
citation by a colleague won a
Pulitzer Prize for spot news
photography in 1968.
Four decades later, the
Jacksonville Historical Society
is commemorating the news-
paper deed with a screening of
an original film documenting
one of the city's best known
"Forty Years Since the
Pulitzer: Rocco Morabito's Kiss
of Life" will be shown at 7:30
p.m. Thursday at Old St.
Andrews church, 317 A Philip
Randolph Blvd. Free parking
will be provided.
The photo underscored the
danger electrical workers face
on a daily basis.
It ran on the front pages of
newspapers all over the coun-
try. The irony is that it gained
more notoriety elsewhere than
it did in Jacksonville.
The photo was a tribute to
the professionalism of The
Journal and its staff. Morabito,
a Jacksonville native, just hap-
pened to be in the area on
another photo assignment
when the incident unveiled.
'"I was in the vicinity
because of a railroad strike,
when I heard all this commo-
tion," Morabito, now 87,
recalled in a phone interview
last week.
"I saw this [JEA] worker
hanging from one of the poles
with another man trying to
rescue him. I just aimed my
camera and got the second
man as he was giving the first
man mouth-to-mouth. The
ambulance had been called
and got there almost immedi-
At the time, Morabito said
he wasn't sure the victim,
Randall Champion, would
make it.
"I'll never forget the sight of
Champion hanging upside
down after coming in contact
with a live wire," Morabito
"I thought he was dead, but
Thompson didn't hesitate to
climb up and do what he did.
We thought he had a chance
because of the quickness of it

Thompson's quick emer-
gency response and the fast
arrival of an ambulance aided
in Champion's eventual recov-
Dick Bussard, a longtime
Jacksonville Beach resident,
was city editor of The Journal
when Morabito's photo landed
on the news desk.
"We had been criticized by
the high command for miss-
ing deadlines," Bussard,
recalled in a phone interview.
"And the man on the desk
that day didn't want to be late
again, and said, he couldn't
use [the photo.] Our manag-
ing editor, Elvin Henson, was
out of town, so I said,
'Deadline or not, this picture
is going to be used now.' "
According to Bussard, the
black-and-white photo ran in
the home edition of The
Journal and Jacksonville read-
ers were the first in the nation
to see the photo before it hit
the national wire services.
"I attended an editor's meet-
ing in New York right after
that and I was amazed at the
attention the picture got,"
Bussard recalled.
"It had run on page one in
papers all over the country.:"
The people at Columibia
University, where the meeting
was held, swarmed around me
asking questions like how
were we able to get it and who
was Rocco.
"One of the men on the
desk tried to take credit for
naming it 'The Kiss of Life,'
but it was a wire service man
who really came up with that
Morabito said he "was just
doing his job" when he took
the famous photo. He never
imagined it would be a
Pulitzer winner.
In moment of typical
newspaper sarcasm, Bussard
remembers a colleague on the
city desk congratulating
Morabito, then asking the ulti-
mate follow-up question in
the news business: "Now,

Personal attention. Meridian Fitness in Ponte Vedra is
holding an Open House typical of the friendly, personalized
.i style of this local fitness center. Clients and friends are
Invited on that Friday, from 4 to 8 p.m., to come and "hang
South" at Meridian Fitness at 5140 Palm Valle\ Road.
"There will be no pressure," says owner Matt Thorton.
.lust come and hang out a while and enioy. We'll have
food and drink and some drawings for great prizes."
Meridian wants its clients, who range from teen athletes to
pulmonary rehab patients to be able to bring friends and
family and show off where they have been working out. It's
an opportunity for all of us to see what the energy from this
great local gym is all about.
Meridian Fitness is a gym, but without the intimidating
atmosphere of the large facilities. Women, some of whom
prefer to work out In private without men nearby, can have
an appointment honoring that preference. Men and
women who gain energy working out with others can find
that synergy here as well.
You will also get to meet personal trainers like Shanan
Hoy who help clients of Meridian reach their goals. Shanan
is a personal trainer with a degree in Kinesiology from the
University of California at Sacramento. Shanan and fellow
trainer John Dipatre have come to Meridian from Gracor.
"I came from an athletic background in high school,"
Shanan says, "and I was motivated to become a personal
trainer when I was 19." She became a fitness director and
Sled recreational sports at her college, working with 18 25
years old and having "great fun."

titions, not to be confused with body-building competition,
S but extreme in its own right. "It was the hardest thing I've
S ever done in my life preparing for this while a full-rime
student and leading my fitness classes." Her hard work was
rewarded when she earned second place in the Miss Fitness
California competition, but, more important today, it gave
her a career philosophy. "By putting myself through some-
thing so extreme, I am prepared to understand my clients
who face their own extreme regimen." Whether you are

building body strength, Shanan understands that this rep-
resents an "extreme" challenge for you.
"Bodies can be changed," she says. "I've done this and I
can help you."
The trainers at Meridian have professional standards and
the goal of contributing to each client's success in reaching
a personal goal. For example, Shanan, on a given morning
works with a client who has followed a program of good
nutrition and exercise to maintain good health as she ages
then guides the rehabilitation of a client regaining move-
ment after a traumatic health event. Men and women, and
young people as well, benefit from the per-
sonal trainer's expertise but each has
unique goals. That's what the "personal"
is all about in personal trainers.

player, has a resume of coaching and train-
ing young athletes. His team works cre-

In singles, No. 1 Yannick
Yoshizawa topped Gainesville's
Adrian Torroella-Cruz, 6-1, 6-1.

Josh Kessler defeated Mark
Williams, 6-2, 6-0, and Austin
Saacke recorded a 6-3, 6-2 vic-
tory over Alex Costakis.
In doubles action, Kessler
and Yoshizawa beat Torroella-
Cruz and Williams, 8-5.
Blackwell and Cheshire teamed

With the win, Nease
advanced to today's state semi-
final against Pensacola
Washington at Sanlando Park
in Orlando.
On the girls side, Nease
advanced to the semifinal
round with a 4-1 victory after
Gainesville High had to forfeit
due to injury.
Gainesville's Preetika Pak suf-
fered leg cramps in her singles
match against the Panthers'
Danielle Agraviador, resulting
in the forfeit. Nease was ahead
2-1 at the time.
In the No. 1 girls singles

Fletcher (18-7), which lost to 7-

Tournament victories are a
welcome sign for the Senators,
who embark on a quest for the
district title this week.
"We've been in three toura-
ments this year and we've won
all three," Fletcher assistant
coach Jeremiah "Boomer"
Bernstein said. "I think (head
coach Kevin) Brown tried to do
that, put us into tournaments

so we can get into that kind of
situation like the district and it
won't be a shock"
In the conference event,
Fletcher relied on the arms of
its pitchers, the one position
which can bum out quickly in
tournament play, as the
Senators have seen opponents
do in each of its championship
games this season.
Stanton Prep ran out of
pitching in its lopsided 16-1
loss to Fletcher in the All-
American Spring Tournament
at Mandarin a few weeks ago.
Parker, which came off an 11-
inning win last Wednesday,
faced the same problems in the
Gateway Conference title
Fortunately for Fletcher,
sophomore Beau Beaudreau, up
from the junior varsity team,
provided an extra arm.
"Four games in four days is
rough on the pitchers,"
Bernstein said. "We were able
to go pretty deep with our

Just remember, NFL Draft is always a gamble

Only a few more think-
ing days before shop-
ping starts Saturday in
the yearly NFL grab-bag
known as the draft. Where
gambling is concerned, the
NFL Draft makes Monte Carlo
and its games of fortune look
like old ladies playing bingo.
The Jacksonville Jaguars do
their planning months ahead
of time with the threesome of
head coach Jack Del Rio, chief
of staff James Harris, also
known as the vice president of
player personnel, and.Gene
Smith, executive director of
college and pro personnel.
Smith is the team's only full-
time man on the draft job and

him three wishes?
Well, Weaver has had wishes
before but some of them
turned out to be nightmares.
No player in Jaguars history
ever came out of the draft
with expectations like those
attached to Byron Leftwich.
Thanks to the smoke blown
at the public about Leftwich
and his abilities, it turned out
to be one of the biggest quar-
terback flops in the league.
Injuries kept Byron from
doing a lot, true, but the man
Harris and the others said
ON would make fans forget Mark
Brunell only made them for-
get to buy tickets.
since Compared to Leftwich,
e for Jonathan Quinn looked like
ne Eli Manning.
to Others blew down as quick-
grant ly. The only question about
Jay Soward was what kind of
jam he might get into away
from the gridiron. They told
us he could run and with
his off-duty activities that was
a talent that came in handy.
They said Matt Jones, the
reconstructed college quarter-
back from Arkansas was "a
comer." After three years he

must be coning by a stage
coach that was held up.
There have been plenty of
goodies available, so let us
give credit where credit is due.
Nobody in the league has
matched the
likes of run-
ning back Fred
Taylor, offen- i
sive tackle
Tony Boselli, N iJ
Tony Brackens,
maybe the best M -o
pass rusher in
20 years, or
David Garrard,
for that matter.
Team offi- o dI
cials didn't
know that lat-
ter was a Pro
Bowler while
they were slobbering over
Byron Leftwich.
The Jags also got lucky with
a pair of defensive tackles in
Georgia's Marcus Stroud and
Tennessee's John Henderson.
If Stroud's injuries had not
closed his active career here
there's no telling what he
might have done next season.
The trio of Smith, Harris


and Del Rio can't be blamed
for every wooden nickel that
turns up. The NFL is a very
tough nut to crack. If every
phenom was as great as he
appeared to be, every pro
team would be
signing only

S d Those on the
outside are
no never wrong,
are they?
It's no secret
that a big need for Del Rio is a
decent pass rusher. Little old
ladies who only see games on
the tube know that much.
For several years the Jags
QBs have taken a beating as
enemy defenders have rushed
the Teal and Black silly.
Jacksonville needs someone to
rush the enemy QBs silly.
The best way to beat a super

thrower is to stop him from
throwing. Or running. Or
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
for next season. Or buy one.
