JAGUARS OWNERS TAKE STEPS TO HONOR LOCAL AREA YOUTH

          Jaguars Owner Wayne Weaver and his wife Delores "are
     putting their hearts and their imagination -- as well as
     their money -- into their giving," according to Kerry Dolan
     of FORBES.  The Weavers are working through the Jacksonville
     Jaguars Foundation to "teach children about responsibility
     and commitment" by providing free Jaguars tickets to local
     kids who participate in the "Honor Rows" program.  Created
     in '94, area youths from age 9 to 16 receive tickets after
     they have achieved certain goals, including promises "not to
     do drugs, smoke or consume alcohol," and participating in
     "volunteer work" or improving school attendance.  The
     foundation has donated tickets to over 9,000 youths as well
     as granted $1.7M in cash to local agencies that work with
     disadvantaged children (FORBES, 12/28 issue).
