Ledger Live with Brian Donohue. Every 17 years, a brood of periodical cicadas emerges from the ground in north and central New Jersey, swarming backyards, parks and forests, creating a near biblical scene and an unholy racket. Meanwhile, scientists are increasingly pondering the possibility that insects could be a key protein source for the world's exploding population. With cicadas swarming, Donohue sets out to gather enough for a meal in an Edison Township backyard and cook them up in the Star-Ledger kitchen with the help of reporter Vicki Hyman.

The Lady Mary left the Port of Cape May on the morning of March 18, 2009 on a routine scallop fishing trip. The vessel with it's crew of seven traveled 66 miles to the restricted scallop fishing area known as the Elephant Trunk. Some time between 5:10 and 5:40 a.m. on March 24, the boat sank and six of the seven crewman were killed. Jose Arias was asleep below deck when the accident occurred, managed to put his survival suit on, and was rescued. He has no idea what sent the Lady Mary 211 feet to the bottom of the ocean. Was it swamped in rough seas? Or did a passing container ship strike the boat without ever knowing it? After months of reporting the Star-Ledger has tried to uncover the mystery of the wreck of the Lady Mary. (Video by Andre Malok / The Star-Ledger)
