SUPERBIRD How to meet a newspaper deadline. Foster Marshall, then the assistant managing editor for graphics for the newspapers, remembered a similar situation where a photographer for the Daytona Beach News-Journal used a homing pigeon to fly film out of Cape Canaveral when it was shut down during the late í50s for a suborbital manned space flight. Marshall told his editors to find a homing pigeon. Then-photo editor Don Ray asked where he could find a homing pigeon. After a spin around the Rolodex and several phone calls later, Ray was in touch with pigeon enthusiast Robert Bernard, a retired Prudential Insurance Co. employee, who lived about 11 miles west of Mayport and six miles from downtown Jacksonville.
