Cheese Has a Much Different Meaning At Riverside Deli

Cheese Has a Much Different Meaning At Riverside Deli

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The folks at the Whiteway Deli in Riverside don't just have your sandwich in mind when they tell you "say cheese."

The owner, Sam Salem, has been taking customer photos with an old Canon behind the front counter for decades.

"I started, then I got the camera as a gift in 1972, I just wanted to practice on customers, and then it just blew up," he said.

He still fills it with film, takes the exposed roll for processing, and at the end of each week, posts new customer photos on the walls.

In all, Sam estimates he's taken more than 70,000 customer photos. Of course, he can't fit all of those on the walls.

So, he's got shoe boxes, photo albums and a warehouse in the back full of photos. He refuses to throw any away.

"You know them, you know their family, you see their kids growing up," he said.

Hookah Bar Sued for Serving Minor Involved in Fatal Accident

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Ali Baba, a Jacksonville hookah bar, is being sued for serving an underage drinker who was involved in fatal car accident.

The crash happened just after midnight November 14, 2010.  Maida Sy, 19, had a 12:30 a.m. curfew.  Maida was on her way home and only minutes away when her car was hit, and she was killed.

Police arrested 20-year-old Robert Tofson.  He is charged with DUI and vehicular homicide.   

"Somebody knock(ed) on our door at four o'clock in the morning and the horrible thing is it's the policeman," said Nida Sy, Maida's mother.

Sy said her daughter was her best friend.  She said the 2010 Sandalwood High School graduate had big plans for her life.  She was studying to be a pharmacist.
