Grill for 20 to 30 minutes, turning every few minutes, or until it is touched with light brown spots.

But Ed Enamait was the last one out of the Potomac River at River Bottom Park in Williamsport on Thursday after the annual Polar Bear Plunge. While others screamed and ran for dry land, their towels and hot chocolate, Enamait, of Falling Waters, W.Va., remained in the Potomac, paddling in a lazy backstroke toward the boat ramp. The Polar Bear Plunge is a fundraiser for the Humane Society of Washington County, and spokeswoman Katherine Cooker said that about $6,000 was raised last year.

Seems like every channel on the television last week had a picture of the capsized Costa Concordia cruise ship lying on its side off the Tuscany coast.  As of Thursday, the death toll from the incident stood at 16, and there were 22 people still officially missing. More than 4,200 passengers were on board the ship. The ship's captain obviously failed the course on “how to be a hero” in his training class. According to reports, he was one of the first people to abandon ship.

While we were paddling past the St. Petersburg (Fla.) Pier in the dark on a cold December morning several years ago, a wave broke over the bow of my sea kayak and sent a cupful of cold water into my lap. In spite of the obvious discomfort, I didn't think much of it at the time and kept paddling. Little did I know that it was the beginning of the end. Stroke after stroke, I labored on. The spray skirt that I had borrowed from a friend was designed to keep water out of the hull.
