Two women kayaking in well-known gator territory came way too close for comfort with a large reptile Saturday afternoon in Daphne after they were thrown out of their canoes and into the water in Lake Forest.
Above normal warmth persists through early next week. There is a small shower chance tomorrow and widely scattered activity on Friday, especially west and the highest coverage of rain and storms on Saturday.
The Gators reported 25 players tested positive since last Tuesday, four more than the the previous 21 reported (including three walk-ons) by Florida athletic director Scott Stricklin last Wednesday - 31 players have tested positive this month.
For those concerned about finding seasonal jobs this holiday, according to Help Wanted Online Data retail salespersons were among the most sought-after employees in August and experts expect the demand to grow.
