RESCUE AT SEA — On Nov. 5, crew members of the cargo ship Green Lake — including Kevin Camarda of Beacon — were awarded medals by the U.S. Merchant Marine for their efforts on Dec. 31 to rescue the crew of a 650-foot car carrier that caught fire in the northern Pacific. Working over 18 hours in 17- to 20-foot waves, the crew was able to pull seven of the 21 crew members from the water. Other vessels rescued nine others.
