The mystery picture in the May 17 issue of the Enterprise Pilot was identified by Billy Minicozzi, who guessed it was Centre Island Beach. Actually, that was not the identification we had hoped for. We wanted someone to say, “It’s the Centre Island Beach during the Sagamore Rowing Association Regatta.” We have photographs we took at the event that we hope to have together for our May 31 issue.
Gregory Adami guessed the photo was taken at an Oyster Festival at Roosevelt Park. He said that last year they had some tents set up on the sand. He also suggested it might be the Polar Bear Swim – another good guess. We chatted about texting while driving. Mr. Adami said he drives along a 36-mile stretch of Sunrise Highway going to work every day and is amazed at the number of young women, ages 18 to 25, who drive while texting, and putting on makeup and/or eating breakfast.
On a sports note, Billy Minicozzi mentioned a football player, Junior Seau, who died on May 2. The 43-year old died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He played defense in the 1990s for the San Diego Chargers.
It appears that May has not been kind to football players. On May 13, David Coleman, Jr., 32, a semi-pro, died due to an injury sustained in a benefit game for a coach with Lou Gehrig’s disease.
On May 14, Ken McRoyal, 22, a University of Idaho football player, was shot at a photo shoot for a new woman’s clothing line.
On May 18, former Clemson football player Brian Wofford, died in a motorcycle accident.
On May 20, Clay Brownell, a Colorado State University player, died in a single-vehicle car accident. He hit a boulder and a tree and was thrown out of the car.
On a happier note, we hope you enjoy the mystery photographs. We enjoy talking to the callers. Keep guessing, it’s good for you and me.
