Young dis[)lav their gymnastic style Local gymnasts in state clinic Two gymnasts and four coaches from M&M Gymnastics attended an eight hour statewide coaching clinic sponsored by the Louisiana United States Gymnastics Federation. The clinic was held at the LSU Field House and featured Gary Alexander, an internationally known gymnastics coach and judge from Colorado. Alexander rewewed and taught coaching techniques for tumbling, vault and uneven parallel bar skills. The emphasis of the clinic was the best ways to teach selected skills to develop peak performance and to prevent injuries to the gymnast. Chantel Young of Springfield and Laurie Mayeaux of Loranger acted as demonstrators for the thirty coaches from Louisiana and Mississippi. M&M coaches who participated in the clinic were Margie Pearce of Pon- chatoula, Carolyn Filipek of Hammond, Doris Young of Springfield and Linda Craddock of Amite. E PONCHATOULA TIMES, SEPTEMBER 11, 1986, SEC. B., PAGE THREE Sea Grant says ... We live on an estuary we do not know More than half of all Americans live within an hour's drive of the sea; yet most people know little about the environment surrounding the oceans. One of the most productive of the coastal areas is the estuary. An estuary has been defined as a "transitory buffer zone between the fresh water of a river and the saline water of the sea." Louisiana has about three million acres of estuaries--more than twice that of any other state. Estuaries are teeming with vitality. They serve as nursery and feeding grounds for a variety of fish, fowl, and other wildlife. It has been estimated that 60 percent of the fish caught nationally by commer- cial fishermen, over $6 billion worth, depend on these wetlands for at least part of their life cycle. And 50 percent of recreational and sportfish nationwide are estuarine-dependent. Louisiana Sea Grant supports many projects dealing with estuaries. Research is concentrated in three main estuary types: the mouth of the Missis- sippi River; open bay estuaries like lakes Pontchartrain, Borgne, and Calcasieu; and the coastal marsh system of southern Louisiana. Man benefits from estuaries (i.e., fishing and hunting grounds) and often causes changes to these areas. Coastal development requires dredging and filling, which disturbs water storage and the estuarine water purification process (marsh plants in estuaries remove many excess nutrients and chemicals from water more efficiently and cheaply than any man made system). Pollutants from runoff, aerial spraying, and sewage out- falls wash into estuaries and degrade water quality. Channels and levees allow saltwater to invade freshwater habitats, killing freshwater plants and displacing animals that depend on low- salinity environments. The complexity and variety of Louisiana's estuaries increase their importance to both researchers and the general public. And according to Louisiana Sea Grant Associate Director, Ronald Becker, "Increased public awareness and support of environmental research programs will help to insure that the state's estuaries continue as prime nursery, fishing, hunting, and trapping grounds."
