    This is not the first time a serious accident has occurred here. A year ago to the day a man was critically injured when he crashed into the wall opposite the beach. The jet skiers infesting the river near Rynne Beach and as far upriver as Vesper Country Club are out of control. They have no regard for other boaters, and it seems like no knowledge of the rules of the road.
