    Both children and adults, like 3-year-old Sharron Marks
  [above, front] and Erin Newman, enjoyed themselves at
  Spring Lake Fire Company No. 1’s barbecue fund-raiser held
  at Bar Anticipation in Lake Como on Sunday. Fire Captain Bill
  Newman said the event was a huge success in raising money
  for the renovations to their firehouse at 1007 Fifth Ave., but
  that the fire company is still “a ways away” from its goal of
  $500,000. There will be an open house at the fire station on
  Sept. 10 for residents to stop by and see the renovations.

   “My message to kids is to pre-
pare them to have their moment
of genius,” he said.
   Two weeks ago, the summer
science camp of Fort Monmouth
Integrated Community Outreach
Network [ICON] visited Camp
Evans.
   The young campers were
given a chance to use a spark-
gap transmitter, tap Morse code
on a 1920s sounder, tune a 1920s
radio and listen to 1930s vacuum
tube based radios, he said.
   Volunteers also showed the
students how computer memory
has improved from a magnetic
doughnut core that costed over
$1 million for a kilobyte of
memory, to transistor memory
that costed $1 million a
megabyte, to today’s compact
flash memory that costs around
$50 for a gigabyte.                                                                                                    LAUREN PARKER, The Coast Star

exciting spin on his job responsi-

er, Microstrategies.
   Mr. Carl is also hopeful retired
professionals from related sci-
ence fields will volunteer their
time at Infoage, share their expe-
riences with students and collab-
orate on projects.
   He estimated it will take the
Army two to three years to com-
plete the environmental remedia-
tion project at Camp Evans. In
the meantime, he said perhaps
more private parties will donate
money and materials for
Infoage’s historical and science
education objectives.
   On average, Mr. Carl estimat-
ed he spends 20 to 30 hours a
week doing his part for Camp
Evans. He said his boss at
Microstrategies,         Anthony
Bonbiovanni, has also been
understanding about his devo-
tion to Camp Evans.
   The company even donated
$3,000 to the project recently, he
commented.
   “My wife also helps me with
Camp Evans,” he said. “She has-
n’t killed me yet or divorced me
— when she should have done
either or both,” he said with a

   I guess it’s up to his parents to

one count each of corruption of

   Those are some pretty serious
charges and hopefully the guy
will get some serious jail time.
   To take a positive out of this
incident sounds like a stretch but
here goes.
   Downs’ actions can be a lesson
to youth coaches all around the
country on what not to do.
   This level of competition does
not belong in youth sports. Kids
should be taught good sportsman-
ship, the fundamentals of the
game, and how to have fun with
sports.
   Youth sports coaches will be
remembered much longer for
teaching kids how to play the
right way than they will for win-
ning a championship.
   The ‘win-at-all-costs’ attitude
must be taken completely out of
youth sports.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 LAUREN PARKER, The Coast Star

teams were back in action for the

the last tournaments of the season
before      the    United     States
Lifesaving Association’s [USLA]
National              Lifeguarding
Championships this weekend in
Virginia Beach.
   The tournament, considered by
many as the most fun of the year,
had open rosters with the only
stipulation being that a female had
to compete in all seven events.
   “We always look forward to the
Manasquan tournament,” Belmar
lifeguard tournament captain Jeff
Zach said. “It gives a lot of people
the chance to compete. They also
have the best party afterwards [at
O’Neill’s].”
   Belmar won the tournament by
collecting 60 points with Bradley
Beach coming in second with 52.
