Gators galore

In the know. In the Times.


It’s getting warmer outside, the days seem longer, and the sun sets a little later each night.  Friends are playing in sprinklers to keep cool and water parks are about to open for the summer.  What are you doing to keep cool while playing outside this month?  Whether you are swimming in springs or taking a dip in the local lake, be sure to watch out for Florida’s most famous reptile, the alligator.  Gators are in the news today, check out safety tips and other facts in “Gators warm to weather” on page 1F.  See a picture of two boys investigating a large gator trapped in a storm drain on page 10B.  Read about a gator handler who was bitten last week in “Spectators stunned by attack” on page 3B.  Tell us about your gator encounters or safety tips here on the NIE Blogging Zone!
