Phone: 473-8282 Archaeologist dives years into past LOS ANGELES (AP) Every time Wilburn "Sonny" Cockrell goes to work, he plunges 230 feet into a Florida sinkhole and years into the past. Cockrell is an underwater archae- ologist who is harvesting relics from the Pleistocene Epoch, some of them human, from the depths of Warm Min- eral Springs, the spa that bills itself as Ponce de Leon's "fountain of youth." Cockrell's work as director of the University of Florida research project is examined in an episode of PBS' "Discoveries airing Monday. The eight-part documentary series from Los Angeles and the BBC looks at shipwrecks, sunken treasures and the lost city of Atlantis. The age of the bones in the Warm Mineral Springs sinkhole has been established by carbon dating at about years. "I feel early man used this place to dispose of the said Cockrell, a tall man with thick sandy hair and a big beard starting to show gray. "We've found the remains of more than 20 men so far. We've also found the bones of a giant ground sloth, a saber-toothed cat, a North American horse and a type of camel related to the llama. "The climate was much cooler then. There were no palm trees and very few pines We've found trees down there, some nuts and pollen. What we're trying to do is understand the humans against this background The human remains are Paleo- Indians. Based on their skeletons, they averaged about 5-foot-4 in height and 110 pounds in weight. Cockrell said the skulls resemble those found in a cave in China more than those of southeastern Indians. The bones have been preserved because the water in the sinkhole has no oxygen. It is also very warm and has a high mineral content, thus attracting many people to it for bathing, despite the sulfurous smell. Cockrell has also pulled up relics from more recent times, including Coca-Cola bottles and a deer skull. "My principal interest as an under- water archaeologist is looking for sites from the Ice Age that are now under Cockrell said. "Since the ice caps melted, the ocean level has risen 300 feet worldwide. We were looking in the wrong places to find early man. We should be looking for those sites that are now up to 300 feet beneath the ocean. "This sinkhole was once a cave that collapsed about years ago. Things have been falling into it since then. We're digging through many genera- tions." Diving to the bottom of the hole, 230 feet down at its deepest, is dangerous and scary. It's pitch black at the bottom. It takes 93 minutes to decom- press on the way up. Prior to coming to Warm Mineral Springs, Cockrell was Florida's underwater archaeologist. That was a job that put him in daily contact with underwater treasure salvagers, includ- ing Mel Fisher, who found the multimillion-dollar wreck of the Atocha. Not all salvagers are legitimate, Cockrell said "Most of the money in finding sunken treasure is made on dry land by people POLLY'S POINTERS Flick of the wrist cuts a grapefruit By Polly Fisher DEAR POLLY Is there an easy way to section a grapefruit for serv- ing without the shell0 CAROL DEAR CAROL Here's the sim- plest way to get professional-looking sections of luscious, juicy grapefruit. Be sure to use a very sharp knife. Cut a slice off either end of the grapefruit, exposing a cross section of its interior Stand the fruit on one end and slice off the peel in strips, cutting deeply enough to remove the white pith and tough membrane along with the peel. Then, holding the grapefruit in one hand, slice through the fruit right next to the membrane that di- vides the sections, and release each section, one by one, from the others. With a little practice, you can slice down the side of one section, then turn the knife around and slice back up the other side, scraping the piece cleanly off the membrane. When aM of the sections have been cut free, squeeze the membranes to extract any re- maining juice. This process is easier to do than to describe, so give it a try. If you want only the sections without any extra juice, drain them in a colander, but be sure to save the juice anyway for a re- freshing citrus drink; fresh grapefruit juice is a delicious change of pace from orange juice. Grapefruit sections are not only a breakfast staple, but they also make a lovely fruit accompaniment for lunch or dinner. Sectioned grapefruit is also an attractive addition to a green sal- ad. Removed from its shell, this is a versatile fruit that deserves to be served more often and in more ways than as simple cut halves on the breakfast table. Enjoy!

We even found one that was copied from the placemat at a fast food restaurant. Some people are making big money selling cheap dental gold in bars to look like Spanish gold Cockrell spent much of his time trying to preserve underwater wrecks from predatory salvagers. He is a strong supporter of a bill now before Congress to protect underwater wrecks. "This bill would preserve wrecks for sport divers to he said. "It would not prevent anyone from diving on a wreck. It would only prevent taking anything from a wreck without a per- mit. Legitimate salvagers would still be able to recover treasure." Cockrell, a native of Alabama, has been diving since 1959. He originally began as a paleontologist but switched to archaeologist. "My first dig was in Alabama for a zeuglodon, which was an ancient whale with a he said. "You find a lot of whale bones in Alabama. People even Fox begins to enjoy life out of fast lane NEW YORK (AP) Michael J. Fox says he's pulled out of the fast lane to enjoy a quieter life with actress Tracy Pollan, US magazine reports in its April 18 issue. "I definitely feel real settling going on almost on every said Fox. "In my personal life, I'm just calming down and really enjoying building a life out- side work. And on the work level, I'm not freaking out about things Fox denied reports that he'll marry in May; but he and Pollan have bought a Vermont homestead together, US reported. The two became friends while playing a couple on television's "Family Ties." "I was goofing around at that point in my life. I was a little more prone to stay out late and drive fast and work said Fox "I hope I wasn't a jerk. But if I was, I have a sneaking suspicion not many people were going to tell me I was." One of the exceptions, he said, was Pollan. "We got along really well, but if I was a jerk, she just went, 'That was a really particularly stupid thing to do And I just went, 'Wow1 That's After Pollan left the show for other projects, the romance developed The result, he said, "is something I never, ever, in my wildest dreams thought would come to pass." used them for building houses."
