'Extraordinary Deeds, Ordinary People' Local men Mike Cerchio, a boat captain, and Fran Gonzon, a restaurateur, are combining forces to honor everyday peo- ple who do remarkable things. The new program is known as 'Extraordinary Deeds, Ordinary People" and is meant to hon- or the people Cerchio describes as "everyday heroes." The idea came home to him recently when his crew and a paramedic who were fishing nearby saved the life of a pas- senger who has passed out after choking on a hot dog. 'q'here are heroes amongst us," Cerehio said. 'rI recognized that there are people who are not getting recognized. Let's give [people] the models they need. Let's give them the examples." Cerchio, a captain at Fisherman's Wharf, enlisted the help of Gonzon, owner of the Roadhouse Steak Jointand the Pasta Bowl. Cerchio said Gonzon's reaction was 'rl want to give back to the community. Show me how." The picture at left shows the first people honored by the program, which the founders hope to continue to do on a reg- nlar basis. Shown are (l-r) Mate Kelvin Miller, Cerchio and paramedic Donald Kennard. Kennard and Miller, who re- .ceived restaurant gift certificates, were instrumental in help- ing the choking woman regain consciousness and recover when she was fishing on Thursday, July 6. i LEWES PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH I Believing00growing, [ ana snarlna I thee love o!00C!"riist i I KEN OSSIE HOWARD DAVIS TO "Captures your mind, )'our heart and your )ul." --I)R.
