Unsung Bay Ridge: A really good sport


This week’s “Person of the Week” is Charlie Eichlerth Precinct Youth Council.

Charlie has served for 45 years and can still be found helping at the concession stand at Frank Schnorr Field, (83rd Street and Shore Road), from April to September. He also served as the bowling director, with hundreds of children playing in the council’s bowling league.

Charlie also volunteers as a state safety director, inspecting local lanes. He is a retired city worker, now totally devoted to the sports programs.

The time has come for us to recognize the thousands of hours Charlie has dedicated to our community. Thank you, my friend.

The beginning of a new year is a perfect time for detoxifying the blood and giving our bodies a general cleansing.

A folk remedy for detoxifying the kidneys is to take a bunch of parsley and wash it. Cut into small pieces, put it in a pot and pour in clean water. Boil for 10 minutes, cool, filter and pour into a glass bottle and keep in the refrigerator.

Drink one glass daily and you will notice you feel better as excess salt leaves your kidney by urination.

Please consult your doctor if you are ill or on any medication.
