TYNDALL—Dave Boska had a big impact on a lot of people. That's the memory two of his daughters shared Friday, nine days after the 72-year-old Tyndall man drowned on a windy day on Lake Francis Case near Pickstown.

Some of my earliest memories growing up are Saturday morning cartoons. I'd like to think most people from my generation got to experience waking up, crawling out of bed and meandering to the couch with a blanket and pillow to watch some of these early '90s classic cartoons: • "Bobby's World" • "Taz-Mania" • "Sonic the Hedgehog" • "Darkwing Duck" • And, of course, my favorite, the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles."
