Full moon to help lobster divers scratch their itch for bugs in 2-day sport season Measuring lobster Spiny lobster (crawfish) must measure more than 3 inches in the carapace, or head section, to be legal. Lobster must be measured underwater and landed whole. No egg-bearing lobster may be taken.

The ferocious 48 hours of underwater bug-chasing activity known as the two-day sport lobster season begins at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday and continues until midnight Thursday. The two-day season, a tradition for many Florida families, is intended to give recreational divers a shot at the season's antennae-waving crustaceans before commercial lobster fishermen begin soaking their traps Aug. 1. Night diving is likely to be popular this year because the full moon falls on Wednesday. Lobsters come out from hiding places to feed at night, and they tend . to be more active during a full , moon. But night diving also brings more risks because divers can be harder to find in the dark if ocean currents sweep them away from boats and dive partners. Last . year, the Coast Guard rescued 21 divers off the coast of Palm Beach County during the first day of the sport lobster season. Many dive boats are booked for Wednesday and Thursday, and several dive shops are planning special events. Scuba Quest in West Palm Beach is having its annual big-bug contest.

Canadian authorities have charged Darren Cecil Frank, 37, of 5858 Windsor Terrace with scamming more than 300 victims out of $3 million, said FBI spokeswoman Judy Orihuela. The investigation started after Frank initiated bankruptcy proceedings for his company, Toronto Office Systems Inc., in February 1996. One year later, a warrant was issued for Frank's ; arrest because he failed to comply with the bankruptcy act rules, said a Royal Canadian Mounted Police official. The ensuing investigation revealed a number of office equip-' ment frauds, said the official, who did not want to be named. The counts listed in court records cite 'at least 40 thefts of copier ma-1 chines. One of the thefts happened at the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada. In 1999, a judge found Toshiba of Canada Ltd. liable for a Markham dealer, Darren Frank, who took the photocopier back to his shop for servicing and then went out of business, according to a July 2, 1999, story in the Toronto Star. Pentecostal Assemblies was awarded $25,000 in damages plus court costs from Toshiba of Canada, the story said. Frank's extradition hearing is scheduled for Aug. 30.
