LIFEGUARDS PULL VEDDER FROM SURF JAM

Lifeguards got rocker Eddie Vedder out of a jam when a riptide carried him 250 feet offshore.

Vedder was swimming in rough surf Saturday with Tim Finn, a New Zealand rock musician.

Told by Finn that he had just rescued the lead singer of Pearl Jam, Karekare Surf Club senior lifeguard Eric Davis was disappointed that all the lifeguards got from Vedder was a quick thank-you.

"We are volunteers operating on a shoestring budget, and a donation would have helped us along," Davis said.
