" Snapper Time "
Sunday April 21, 2002, marked the opening day of Red Snapper season in Louisiana....one of the most magnificent in appearance and best tasting of sea food delights. This saltwater fish prefers the 100 foot plus depths and clusters around reefs such as formed by oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico. I will now take you on a peek-a-boo tour of Phil Rosenblatt and my exciting adventure with close friends T.G. Solomon, Phil Whitman and Captain "Bert" on their 53' Hatteras Sport Fishing Yacht " Conspiracy".
An end to a wonderful day
to James Stone
our dear friend and founder of Stone Oil Company, for placing one of his Oil Rigs to provide a fish friendly environment for use in years to come.
A Special Thanks
For over a decade I have had the wonderful opportunity to have been given a second academic home. Delgado Community College has shown me the true spirit of selfless education. Community Colleges play a major role in educating the workforce for job related, practical skills which can be put to immediate use. Chancellor Terry Kelly has not only become a close friend but has enabled me to become intricately involved with many aspects of his flagship community college in Louisiana. Deans Dr. Margaret Montgomery and Kathleen Mix have extended their hospitality to not only me but my fellow doctors at Tulane.
