She wanted to separate the gun from the boy, and to find out where he was, but she had to be careful. She let him talk. "He was very depressed," she said. "He felt nothing in his life was going right." The phone clicked. The student's doctor was returning his call. This gave Mazzella her first chance to yell for colleagues to call police and get the boy's parents' phone numbers. Back on the line, Mazzella could hear the sounds of metal.

Officials renew sick-fish warnings By Sally D. Swartz Palm Beach Post Staff Writer STUART Martin County health officials don't know if a sore on a fisherman's lip is linked to lesions found on fish in local rivers, but Friday they renewed warnings against eating sick fish. The fisherman's sore is not herpes, as officials suspected, public health administrator Valerie Gryniuk said. The man, who said he routinely held his cast-net in his teeth while fishing the rivers, will go to a private doctor. "At this time there's no proven relationship between the sore in the man's mouth and the fish lesions," Gryniuk said. "We haven't identified the lesions as a public health threat to humans." Scientists still know very little about Cryptoperidiniopsis, the microscopic algae suspected as a cause of the fish lesions. No tests exist to see if the microbe affects humans. The fisherman was the first person to report health problems possibly caused by contact with the water. The health department Tuesday will test water at the Stuart and Jensen Beach causeways, where people swim, and in areas where people water ski. mi WEST PALM BEACH 1880 Okeechobee Blvd. A mile west ot (-95) Open 9am-7pm.
