The News-Times interviewed legendary Coast Guard lifesaver retired Master Chief Thomas McAdams and author Joe Novello about a book chronicling McAdams' career. The chief shared some stories not in the book, like the time he towed a sunken boat for 50 miles before essentially slinging it up on the beach for recovery.
