"It could be a sneak attack," said Bill Hickman of the Rehoboth Beach Patrol. "This year all Sussex county guards will be competing under the same banner." Rehoboth has come as close as 43 points while finishing second in the team com- petition. Lipcoln Navigator TOY OF THE WEEK- Imag- ine a movie "Car Salesman in the Hood." Some with nicknames like Ice Cube, Smooth Lube, Bumper T Bumper, and Yo Killin' Me. This Lincoln Navigatorat Milford Motors (under new management) with Mark Zaccardelli at the con- trois is a demo at is not for sale. It is a toy for the salesmen' to show off. And just like the Ice Cube mobile in "Boyz In The Hood," the Navigator elevates when the engine accelerates. With V8 engine and leather interior, this baby will carry six widebod- ies to the fat farm but they may stick to the upholstery. The air suspension system is height ad- justable and has a four corner load-leveling system, Forget Tom Keene and car talk. I'm telling you this is a bad rod and if you have enough money you can buy it. "Is it more than $12,500?"

A sort of lobe globe...My personal Wild Dog Walking program which began last September with a goal of 100 miles per month will require me to log 180 miles per month in July and August to reach 1,500 for the year. "You've got to go after it,". said Tommy Coveleski. "Goals are good - they. keep you going. Go after that 1,500 Fredman." Walking is like a garden salad. Fat people are attracted to them both. So take your love lite and low cal and go on now, git! Fat farm patients: Rice Heads Baltimore Raven defensive end Mike.Fred- erick has sent his father, Tom Frederick, to camp: Tom's camp letters will appear here because his brother Dave is the Cape Gazette sports editor. FROM: Heart Disease Reversal Clinic and Rice Diet Program at Duke University. Dear Fredman, 53 years old and I'm writing my first letter from camp. My last night of freedom I had my pre-game meal: three sodas, two cherry pies, a bag of Fritos and a large Baby Ruth bar and I was ready. Friday moming I showed up for my pre- admission physical. I was healthy but over- weight. Everything was fine, only one last step, the weigh-in. Like a heavyweight fighter I stepped on the scale. The electronic numbers appeared in bright red letters. There must be a mistake. That number couldri't be right! The scale screamed out "One at a time." Defensive lines in the FREDERICK NFL weigh less, my Ford Bronco weighs less, entire cities in Ethiopia weigh less. This must be a joke. I had crossed the 400 pound barrier. No longer could I dream of being a Chippendale. I now was a Clydesdale. Help! Nothing seemed funny. Where was my Fred sense of humor? Suicide was a problem Knives or bullets might not pene- trate.- Jumping from a tall building meant climbing to the top,'which was impossible. I wanted to cry but I hadn't done that since I Saw my SAT scores. What would Fredman do? No, I had to find a solution, so off to camp I go. THE RICE HOUSE.. I arrived with 30 people trying to take control of their prob- lem. The patibnts call themselves Rice Heads. My first crisis was that I don't like rice. I wbn't bore you with the menu, but you can have white rice or brown rice. My first laugh came when three large Ital- ian men at one table .asked for tomato sauce for their rice. There was fruit and dry cereal. Meetings, yoga, and trips round out the day. Every morning there is a weigh-in, and exer- cise is encouraged. My walk around the mall "was going well until I found myself sitting in the food court. I don't know how I got there. Eight eating places - I read the large menus. Chicago hot dogs, one large with cheese and chili $2.79. It couldn't hurt. Sadly I left, food uneaten. Back in my room I eyed my snack, a nec- tarine. Seven minutes to finish my piece of fruit. I was timing my snack. Help, I'm be- coming a Rice Head. I'll write more next week. Oh yes, the diet is working. Two weeks and I've lost 26 pounds. A cup of water out of theocean but it's a start.
