AP St. Louis photographer James Finley came back to work last month after having a heart attack at the end of November. Finley had a triple bypass operation the next day. He is doing well now. I've heard he has developed a fondness for turkey burgers and vegetarian cuisine.

I have my own medical news to add: My mother Constance Markey is recovering nicely after having a brain tumor removed three weeks ago. The tumor was a benign meningioma, a tumor of the membrane surrounding the lobes of the brain. Her doctors are expecting a full recovery and no complications.

On the move......Mike Rondou has joined the staff of the St. Petersburg Times after spending time as a golf caddie in south Florida. Paul Kitagaki has left the Portland Oregonian for the Seattle Post Intelligencer. The Southeast Missourian in Cape Girardeau has hired Chris Stanfield from Jackson, Tennessee as photo editor. R.C. Adams has been named photo editor of the Columbia (MO) Tribune, replacing Mike Stewart who went to Albuquerque. Reed Hoffman of the Rochester (NY) Newspapers has moved to Kansas City where he will freelance and do consulting work. He follows his wife Sharon who became assistant metro editor at the Kansas City Star. Region 7 Photographer of the Year Kelly Presnell has resigned from the Salina, Kansas Journal to take some time off and go home to Wichita. Kansas City AP photographer Cliff Schiappa has been elected president of his neighborhood association (Look out John McCain!). Two days after he was elected a crime wave hit the area.

Allsport contract photographer Jonathan Daniel will be staying in Chicago. Jonathan's wife Jinger in about to graduate from medical school and was heavily recruited by Yale, Columbia, Harvard and others for her residency. She has elected to stay at the University of Chicago and Jonathan will be able to stay and complain about the lousy Cubs and White Sox for years to come.

And, from Florida, Teri Hayt of Disney's photo department is heading to the Arizona Daily Star to become director of photography. Teri was also formerly a picture editor at the Orlando Sentinel and a staffer at Sports Illustrated. Her husband Jon Hayt will also be joining the staff in Tucson, but not as a shooter.
