MODESTO, Calif. (AP) -- More than 240 calls were made between Scott Peterson and his girlfriend, Amber Frey, during the weeks before and after Peterson's wife, Laci, disappeared, an investigator testified Tuesday.
Peterson and Frey spoke as often as 16 times a day between Nov. 19 and Feb. 19, including calls on Christmas Eve, when Peterson said his wife disappeared while he was fishing, and on Valentine's Day, Stanislaus County investigator Steve Jacobson said. There were very few days when there weren't calls between their phones, he said.

The Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving are traditionally thebiggest shopping days of the year. Traditionally, with either-sex deer and duck seasons open and fall fresh and saltwater fishing at its peak, it's one of the biggest weekends for sportsmen as well.
Trying to find time to both hunt and fish and shop is tough, so I've put together a few non-traditional gifts that beat the typical hunting socks or fishing pole by a mile and will get your shopping off to a great start.
I only have to think back to a pre-fishing trip cookout at Grand Isle to know what wish list item number one will be.
Fish That Glo Your Mind
All hail the GloFish: The heir to the Day-Glo poster, the strobe
light and the lava lamp and, if a Texas company has its way, the first
genetically engineered household pet.
Transgenic zebrafish, which glow with the intensity of radioactive
isotopes, were designed to detect toxic substances in the environment, but
such an application was commercially limited. If you're talking fish and
profits, you have to talk supermarket seafood counters and restaurants -- or
pet stores. And at a maximum length of a few inches, zebrafish won't make it
to very many catch-of-the-day specials.
New Technology Seeks To Bridge Rift In Manatee Issue - from Tampa Bay Online
In the continuing friction between powerboaters and manatee fans, one promising direction seems to be what is being called manatee avoidance technology (MAT) - gadgets that either help manatees avoid boats or help boat-operators avoid manatees.
Advocates of MAT point out that if a workable system is devised, it could eliminate much of the alleged need for additional no-boating zones in areas where manatees are abundant.
The Florida Legislature has been doling out $200,000 per year, since 2001, for companies pursuing this technology.
Clean trout and soak for 12 to 16 hours in a solution of water, canning salt, and brown sugar. Remove fish from the brine solution and allow salt water to drain completely. Smoke in a smoker until fish are golden brown. Smoking usually takes six to eight hours.

As the owner of WindRush Farms fishing resort, Quint Drennan has met nearly every sort of trout fisher, and he has swapped some rather creative trout recipes with the anglers he has met.
"That's one thing that is fun," says Drennan. "We do swap recipes.
Anchorage Daily News | Law gives Newtok land for town site
No one from Newtok got to watch President Bush sign a historic bill Wednesday, a land exchange that will allow their erosion-plagued village to move to higher ground. They couldn't afford the trip to Washington, D.C., village officials said.
Now the Western Alaska community, population 330, has an even bigger financial challenge -- finding the $50 million to $100 million needed to establish a new town site eight miles away on Nelson Island.
In spite of the work that lies ahead, Newtok residents were delighted that the bill, introduced earlier this year by Sen. Lisa Murkowski, had been signed into law.
"We're excited. We're elated.

'Dead Bob' raises more questions than answers
Hurricanes whipped his saltwater shroud again and again. Shrimp and fishing boats plied over his grave thousands of times. He was history, forgotten with as much ease as the rest of us forget what kind of bold, brash characters first settled these once-wild shores.
This long-dead sailor was one of the many who did not survive the reported madness and cruelty of his 17th-century expedition leader, Rene Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle.
The sailor's bones were found atop a coil of anchor rope when Texas Historical Commission archaeologists excavated La Salle's ship La Belle and his small coastal colony between 1996 and 2002.
All smiles in a paradise with Tigers
On my crackly line from London, I thought I heard him say there were "rogue terrorists" menacing the road at night. I repeated the phrase parrot-like, more than a little incredulous.
The peace process, after all, between the government and the Tamil Tigers, the terrorist group fighting for a separate Tamil state in the past couple of decades, seemed fairly well entrenched, if recently more stop than start. I had misheard, however. "No, No. Rogue elephants," he repeated with a guffaw.
