Tentative bridge

openings trouble

some Palm Beach

County boaters
By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
Temporary restrictions on opening times at bridges in
Palm Beach County seem to have hit a nerve with some
boaters, who say the new schedule is creating unsafe con-
ditions.
"It's very stressful," said Alie -Gridley of Boca
Raton. "You're contending with the current and the other
boats and trying to keep a good distance from the bridge."
Gridley and others have until June 30 to air their opin-
ions on the closings to the U.S. Coast Guard, which is col-
lecting public comments on the Palm Beach County
bridge restrictions. Boaters can send letters or emails.
"We're looking for constructive criticism," said
Michael Lieberum, a bridge manager with the U.S. Coast
Guard.
The Coast Guard imposed the test schedule on March
17 to determine if new opening times will ease traffic on
both the water and the roadways. The restrictions end June
15 when all affected bridges will return to regularly sched-
uled openings.
The changes have included all drawbridges in Palm
Beach County, with the exception of two near the Jupiter
Inlet. All totaled, 17 bridges have lockdowns from 8 to 9
a.m. and.5 to 6 p.m. All other times, the Woolbright Road
and Lake Avenue bridges open on demand. The remaining

bridges open twice each hour, or once every 30 minutes.
The two bridges near Jupiter Inlet are exempt from
restricted openings and lockdowns because of very strong
currents that pose a danger to waiting boaters, Lieberum
said.
The restrictions were imposed at the request of sever-
al city mayors, the county and U.S. Congressman Clay
Shaw's office, which wanted the U.S. Coast Guard to
come up with a plan that is more equitable for everybody,
Lieberum said.
"Some of the bridges were opening on demand and
some motorists were always waiting for bridges to open
and close," he said. "We want to see if a different sched-
ule would work."
There are presently no plans to have similar restric-
tions imposed in Miami-Dade and Broward counties,


Lieberum said.
Those sending the Coast Guard their comments on
the issue must include their names and addresses, other-
wise their input may not be considered, Lieberum said.
"After June 30, we may come out with another test or
have 'notice of proposed rule making," Lieberum said.
If there is another test, the public will be given 60 to
90 days notice. With a notice of proposed rule making,
people have 90 days to make comments and then a final
ruling would be decided, he said.
If a new schedule is warranted, it could take at least
nine months to implement, Lieberum said.
"For years, we have gotten requests to look at indi-
vidual bridges," he said. "The problem is, if we keep

JUNE 2003park to give Lauderdale neighd a pce to l h bat

New park to give Lauderdale neighborhood a place to launch boats


By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
With the nearest boat ramp at Cooley's Landing in
downtown Fort Lauderdale, boaters in the Riverland com-
munity of Lauderdale Isles often have to travel some 30 min-
utes to launch their craft.
But that long trip will soon be a thing of the past when
construction is completed on a new waterfront park current-
ly being carved out of a five-acre parcel overlooking the
North New River Canal.
Construction of the new Riverland Woods Park is
expected to be finished by Dec. 31. Some 200 people attend-
ed a groundbreaking ceremony on May 17 at the site, at 4000
Riverland Road.
Work crews will renovate an existing single boat ramp
on the property that has been unused for many years. A small
docking area will be installed on both sides of the launch.
Also to be at the site: a tot lot, picnic area, exercise trail,
bike path, an entrance road and lighting. The entire project is
costing $500,000, with funding to come from state and
Broward County grants.
It took nearly a decade for the empty lot to finally be
transformed into a neighborhood park, said Joan Sheridan,
chairman of the Southwest Coalition of Civic Associations,
an umbrella group of homeowner associations in southwest-
ern Fort Lauderdale.
Sheridan, along with other community activists, schools,

An existing single boat ramp that has been unused for
many years will be renovated as part of a park project in
Fort Lauderdale's Riverland neighborhood. A small

churches, businesses, organizations and political leaders,
called for the property to be purchased by the county for
recreational use and kept from becoming an industrial site.
"It's overwhelming to think that after nine years, this is
a reality," said Sheridan, who has lived in Lauderdale Isles for
40 years. "So many wonderful people and organizations
worked on this to make it happen. It was grass roots effort."
The unused boat ramp now on the property was initially
leased from the land's previous owner in 1955 by the
Lauderdale Isles Yacht Club, whose members used the
launch for some 30 years.
Then the new owner who purchased the parcel expressed
liability concerns. Club members didn't have enough funds


to buy insurance and instead had to launch their boats from
ramps in downtown Fort Lauderdale, Sheridan said.
The property sat empty for several years until 1994,
when Sheridan and others in the Riverland area learned that
the owner had plans to develop it into an industrial site.
Sheridan, then vice president of Lauderdale Isles Civic
Improvement Association, and Gary Stockweather, who was
the group's president, asked the owner if he would either sell
or swap parcels with the county.
A parcel of county-owned, industrial-zoned land in
Coral Springs was eventually found, but another $300,000 in
cash was needed to make it a fair swap, Sheridan said.
The county found the money, from Florida Power and
Light franchise fees paid by residents in the Riverland com-
munity. The swap was made in 1999, she said.
The area where the new park sits was part of unincorpo-
rated Broward County. The community was annexed into the
City of Fort Lauderdale in September, 2002. The park site was
purchased by the county and will be maintained by the city.
Gary Stockweather, past president of Lauderdale Isles
Civic Improvement Association, said the park is a victory for
the community.
"It will provide an important place for the residents and
families to enjoy the waterfront," he said. "Cooley's Landing
is an awfully long way. It's too far for kids to have access to
a boat ramp. This ramp will allow kids and people with small
boats, kayaks and canoes to get their boats in the river, fish
and have fun."

Recycling containers to help protect wildlife from discarded fishing line


Environmental groups fund efforts
to safely depose of monofilament
By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
On a jetty in Biscayne National Park, Joele Doty scout-
ed for spots to place recycling containers to safely collect
discarded monofilament line no good for fishing, but a
persistent, long-lasting menace to birds and marine animals.
The park is joining Florida Sea Grant, the Sierra Club
and the Tropical Audubon Society in a crusade to post 20
containers by November at parks and marinas in Miami-
Dade County. "I just took about a 20-minute walk on the
jetty, and I have five or six balls of fishing line that I just
picked up off the ground. It wasn't even tangled in the trees
yet," said Doty, who is the park's education coordinator.
"There is a problem, especially along our jetties where there
are a lot of anglers. A lot of times we'll find birds entan-
gled."
If she were a gull or a pelican, Doty would try to touch
up her nest with some of the monofilament she found that
morning. She'd manage all right with a short piece of heavy-
weight leader, but long, loose coils of line would tangle her
talons, snag her beak, bind her wings like handcuffs. She'd
be stuck with a fish hook, someplace where she couldn't
reach it.
She might be able to hobble, but not fly. Eggs in a nest?
They'd be dead ducks. Reassuringly, the poet Percy Bysshe
Shelley would say: "Bird thou never wert."
Forthose who art, here's how bad the fishing line prob-
lem is not just for birds, but also for turtles, manatees and
other creatures, even fish. Marella Crane, a marine extension
agent for the county and Florida Sea Grant, supplied the fol-
lowing data:
From 1996-2000, 163 turtles were found entangled in
monofilament line, according to the Florida Marine
Research Institute.
Between 1880 and '99, the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission recorded the rescues of 96 man-
atees from entanglements on the southeast coast from
Martin County through the Keys.
FWCC has recorded 96 manatee rescues from entan-
glements in southeast Florida (Martin to Monroe) between
1980-1999.
Between 1995-2000 approximately 35 dolphins in the

southeastern U.S. died of monofilament-related injuries.
Researchers have documented over 60 species of fish
that have swallowed or become entangled in marine debris.
From 1988 to 2001, the last year available, the Ocean
Conservancy's annual one-day International Coastal
Cleanup compiled a U.S.-wide score of 866 creatures entan-
gled in monofilament line, with 171 of those in Florida a
Miami area figure, not statewide.
Wendy Fox, chief of staff at Pelican Harbor Seabird
Station in Miami, vividly describes the effects monofilament
can have on wildlife:
"Loose line finds its way into the mangroves and roost-
ing birds get tangled up and will hang there until they die,"
she said. "Line picked up on a leg or a wing will become
tighter and tighter, cutting off circulation until the limb
becomes useless. Ninety percent of the injuries we see in

pelicans are related in some way to fishing tackle. Most but
not all of the pelicans we pick up at the fishing piers are
snagged by active fishing as opposed to just picking up dis-
carded line."
Wildlife becomes tangled in ropes and other stuff too.
Monofilament accounts for an annual average of 42 percent
of known cases, but in Florida it's 54.9 percent. Ocean
Conservancy even counts the pieces of mono scavenged by
its volunteers -443,630 nationally since 1998, with 100,438
of them found right here.
Maybe we do more fishing than they do in the rest of the
country. And maybe we toss our trash around more care-
lessly.
The first recycling tubes, resembling periscopes made
of white PVC pipe, were posted in mid-May three at Black
Point Marina in Cutler Ridge, two at Homestead Bayfront in
Homestead and four at Biscayne National Park. After
adding the rest of the major marinas, project leaders hope to
put recyclers at about 15 more popular fishing sites in
Miami-Dade. Grants from the Yamaha Contender Miami
Billfish Tournament and BoatUS are helping pay for the
project.
"The only hard part is finding volunteers to be able to
go out there and collect the line," Crane said. "And once it's
collected they need to take it to an indoor box. We have them
in 13 marine supply stores and tackle shops. They take that
line and ship it to Berkley Pure Fishing Company in Iowa."
Berkley, a leading manufacturer of fishing lines and
other tackle, melts the old line down and converts it to plas-
tic pellets, which are recycled in the manufacture of tackle
boxes and line spools, but not new line.
A lot more line is collected than what fishermen care-
lessly toss away. At tackle shops, it's common practice to
peel the old stuff off a customer's reel. "Capt. Harry's (a
Miami store) fills a box about once a week," Crane said.

The trials

of admiralty

By MARK ERCOLIN
Waterfront News Columnist
Although my parents never restricted
my reading material when I was young,
my mother was not happy when I discov-
ered the works of Franz Kafka. It was
mom's opinion that I was cynical enough
on my own without exploring the litera-
ture of post World War I nihilism.
One of Kafka's best-known literary
pieces (and one of his most depressing)
was a story called "The Trial." In this
tale, the unfortunate protagonist is taken
away from his home by faceless authori-
ties without benefit of counsel. He is
immediately placed on trial without ever
knowing the charges against him or the
procedures of the court.
Although Kafka meant this story to
be a a post-modernist metaphor for 20th
century life, to the uninitiated a real trial
before an actual court can seem like a
Kafkaesque experience if one is not prop-
erly prepared for it. By the way, it might
interest you to know that Kafka was
trained as a law clerk.
It is also true that television and
movies can sometimes give people the
impression that the modem court system
is much more expedient than it actually is
in reality. This assumption could lead one
to accept Kafka's scenario that the court-
room is filled with surprise witnesses and
unresearched evidence.
So, what exactly is the real scuttle-
butt on court trials in the United States?
Are trials in admiralty different from
other trials? Well, let's look at some of
the basics:
Generally, under the U.S. system, tri-
als fit into two categories criminal and
civil.
Crudely put, a criminal trial is
brought before a court by the government
(federal, state, or local) against a person,


people, or an entity accused of disobey-
ing a law that resulted in unacceptable
actions. A finding against the defendants
in this kind of trial can result in jail time
or fines, or possibly both.
In contrast, a civil trial is generally
brought before a court by a plaintiff or
plaintiffs seeking some type of economic
compensation, or to stop or alter an
action by the defendant or defendants.
Trials in admiralty are usually considered
a sub-set of civil trials.
Unlike some portrayals in the popu-
lar media, the time involved from the first
filing of a civil case to actually going to
trial is not always quick. In fact, it may
take well over a year for a civil case to go
from its first filing in a court until ending
up at trial.
One reason why it takes so long is
precisely because the system is designed
to prevent the Kafkaesque scenario
where one party or another does not fully
understand the issues that might come up
during a trial.
Once a civil case is filed, time elaps-
es to allow the opposing party to request
a dismissal and/or respond to the plain-
tiff's accusations. Assuming dismissals
have been reviewed and are either denied
or tabled by the court, the opposing party
will then respond to the accusations -
usually admitting to certain general
aspects of the complaint against them
while denying others.
After the defendant has responded to
the complaint, there is customarily a long
period when the case allows for "discov-
ery" between the parties. Ordinarily, the
discovery period is when all the parties
are supposed to "lay their cards on the
table" so that everyone involved will
know what will be presented and what

Towing for

the fun of it

By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
When I win a lottery jackpot, I'll start a
home for lost dogs and cats...supplement
the food budget for a special cop who's fos-
ter mom to a crowd of down and out chil-
dren...shelter the homeless, support starving
artists, build my wife a swimming pool, send
my sister's kids to college.
What noble goals! But first, I'll do
something more important: hire a driver to
tow my boat.
Not that I'm lazy. I can launch a boat
solo, and I'm pretty good at winching it up
single-handed. I'll bait my own hook, thank
you, and unhook my own thumb when I
stick myself. Steer the boat, fight a fish and
take pictures, all at once?
Can do.
Pull a trailer in traffic? Never again. Soon
as I win that jackpot, I'll hire the first sober
so-and-so who comes along carrying a dri-
ver's license with a photo that could be him.
I expect to double my time on the water,
because when I don't go fishing it's usually
because I'm daunted by towing in traffic.
If you pull a boat on a trailer Down
Here, you know what I mean.
What's your favorite fright? Let's hitch
up and list them, one by one, as merrily we
roll along.
We'll begin at any entrance ramp to
everybody's favorite highway, 1-95. The first
traffic lane is virtually vacant until we start
to make our move. Seeing us, almost every
driver swerves over from the other lanes.
Now we're out of ramp space.
We wait until a collision a few yards
back gives us an opening. Once in the stream
of traffic, we click the left turn signal (No,
don't! Oops, too late) alerting every driver in
sight that we plan to sidle into the next gap
in traffic. A gap was coming, but now it clos-
es up. That'll teach us to signal.
As responsible drivers, we leave plenty


of space between us and the car ahead,
because we know the heavy load we're
hauling multiplies our minimum safe stop-
ping distance. Other drivers know it too.
They leap into our breach the moment it's
created, reminding us that we're in hot
competition out there.
If our families are on the ride, let's
encourage them to participate by sorting
appropriate words and phrases to cate-
gories: profanity, obscenity, blasphemy.
Hey kids, other than the finger-flip, how
many vulgar hand signals do you know?
Just for the sake of discussion,
assume we're still alive after numerous
compromises of highway safety and basic
human decency, and let's get ready to
leave the expressway. Our exit's about a
mile ahead, a tight fit, but we're smarter
than we were before, so we don't signal
our move to the right lane.
In the side mirrors we see a Grand
Prix that had been behind us, first on the
left and now on the right, swerving around
and cutting back sharply ahead. The driver
is a young dude wearing a cap backwards.
He leans out his window with his car still
in drive and his face in reverse, gesturing
with both hands and shouting.
The wind carries away his words, but
we can tell he's saying something like
"Look! One finger on each hand is slightly
longer than the others!"
Driving around 55 knots, with a boat
and trailer behind, we are not as confident
as he about taking both hands off the steer-
ing wheel, but we can holler at any speed1
If the dude in the Prix can read lips he's
still facing backward he can see we're
saying something like, "we know many
dirty words! Here are some!"
What wonderful people we meet fish-
ing and boating, if only we live to reach

can be expected at trial.
The procedures involved in discovery require that the
parties generally know what to ask of the opposing side
and that they also be able to explain why they want such
information. Discovery (which also includes depositions)
can become a very drawn out and even expensive process
since, needless to say, some parties tend to be more forth-
coming than others.
Also, towards the end of the discovery period, most
civil courts will typically insist that the parties attempt to
mediate their differences before trial (i.e., sit at a table
together and work out an agreement). Sometimes, at this


juncture, even more information becomes known than
would actually be presented at trial due to the fact that
details given in mediation are not always subject to the
rules of evidence required in a trial. Generally, if media-
tion fails and no agreement is reached shortly afterward,
the parties will probably end up at trial.
This is a very basic description of the process leading.
up to most civil trials, including cases in admiralty law.
Usually, the main difference in maritime litigation would
be questions of which parties would be allowed to go for-
ward in a case under certain issues, and in which court.
By the time a civil case comes to trial, the mystery


and dark comers imagined by existential writers should be
completely gone, even in a maritime case. The trial should
be little more than a controlled forum for laying out the
pertinent information to a judge and/or a jury.
No mystery, no darkness, but it's still a long road.
Maybe that's why Kafka had a story that turned a per-
son into a cockroach they're very durable, you know!

seeking volunteer help from the Girl Scouts and students at
Homestead High School. Doty, the Biscayne education
coordinator, sees a lot of classes and organizations at the
park, putting her in a good position to recruit help and teach
people the environmentally correct way to dispose of fishing
line:
"We hope we can turn this around not only through
those recycling tubes, but by going on to the jetty and talk-
ing to people and explaining why we have these recyclers
there, and the importance of what role they play in what they
catch. There are people here who run fishing clinics for kids.
We all know the cost that fishing lines pose to wildlife, and
we do try to talk to anglers about it."


For one, thing, monofilament isn't biodegradable.
Although its breaking strength weakens with time, it's sup-
posed to last about 600 years.
Also, we mustn't merely toss it into a trash barrel
because birds, for all their better qualities, are garbage-pick-
ers. Seagulls especially.
"We can all put it in the trash, Doty said, "but if it goes
to Mt. Trashmore (a county dump), birds can be picking up
those large pieces and bringing them back where other birds
and creatures can be entangled in it. If you're going to throw
it in the trash, cut it up in small pieces."

One of the options of a sea-service membership I have

receive a magazine whose publisher thinks trailer is a verb.
The magazine likes to remind me what rollicking good fun
it is to tow a boat on the road, as if I could forget.
It is fun, isn't it? Doesn't pulling a boat trailer on 1-595

Hammock harmony: Group works to rid preserve of debris


This is one in a series of special features looking at
landmarks in South Florida's waterfront communities.
This month's feature explores restoration efforts taking
place at Matheson Hammock in Coral Gables.
By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Staff
Tom Kazo slowly paddles his canoe through the quiet,
narrow water trails of Matheson Hammock in Coral Gables
and looks with amazement at his surroundings.
"When we first started coming here, there were so many
downed trees and debris clogging the trails that you could-
n't squeeze through," he said.
"Now the water is flowing with the tides; the fish and
birds are back and the vegetation is healthier and growing,"
said Kazo, 70, beaming as he speaks.
Kazo's Wildlife Research Team, WRT for short, is
responsible for a major cleanup at Dade's largest wildlife
preserve. Since 1999, a team of 300 WRT volunteers have
clocked more than 9,000 weekend hours pulling, cutting and
carrying out more than 166,000 pounds of debris by hand
and canoe.
Though it's a slow process, Kazo said his dedicated
nonprofit, all-volunteer educational foundation is committed
to restoring the hammock.
They've taken on the largest mangrove green space pre-
serve in Dade. Matheson Hammock was first created in 1938
with donated land and other land purchased by Dade County.
It is located off Old Cutler Road, bordered by Biscayne Bay
on the east and Snapper Creek Canal on the west.
Despite all the work, the preserve still has a long ways,
to go. Kazo estimates it will take four years for the park's
630 acres much of it under water to be well on its way
to good health.
"I never would have guessed many years ago that I
would be doing this, but I love it and wouldn't want to be
doing anything else:' said Kazo, a Davie resident.
Kazo, who holds a doctorate degree in animal behavior
and is considered an authority on a dog's keen sense of

S learned there was no one responsible for small areas where
big machinery and large boats could not reach.
Grants from state and federal agencies, including the
National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration, has helped
SWRT undertake projects across the state.
Using 40 canoes, the team has eliminated more than
S200,000 pounds of debris from sections of Fort Lauderdale's
SNew River, as well as performed a major cleanup of the
North Fork of the Miami River in Dade County.
The Matheson Hammock project is by far the largest
challenge and a number of grants have helped buy equipment
and pay for the disposal of trash collected. The WRT was con-
tracted to perform the cleanup with the Dade parks system.
WRT volunteers come from all walks of life and are all
ages. A couple in their 80s work alongside teenagers or a
team of doctors from Barry University who have taken on
the hammock as a community service project.
"I got hooked when Dr. Tom was a patient of mine and
asked me to come out and help," said Jessica Addeo of
Hollywood, a medical student who spends Saturday mom-

Plywood Regatta chairman builds love
By WILLIAM RI HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
FORT LAUDERDALE When he was 9 years old,
Brian Van Den Breen enjoyed spending time with his
handyman dad building small wooden boats.
Then living along the Mississippi River in Illinois, Van
Den Breen's love of boats took shape. Today he builds mega
yachts, and in his spare time helps kids experience the joy of
craftsmanship.
For the last five years he has served as chairman of the
annual South Florida Plywood Regatta, scheduled to take
place this year May 31 to June 1 on Fort Lauderdale beach.
"It's a great opportunity to see young people take such an
interest in boating and the event has helped to open the eyes
of many as to possible careers in the marine industry," he said.
Van Den Breen's dedication has reaped honors from his
marine industry peers. Last year he was given an "Award of
Excellence" from the Marine Industries Association of
South Florida (MIASF), regatta sponsor, and last month was Photo/WILLIAM HAWKINS

The regatta allows teams of students to take identical
materials and build individual two-man boats. On May 31,
the teams will gather at DC Alexander Park on Fort
Lauderdale beach and will go to work using plywood, a jig
saw, a drill and various manual tools. They build the craft,
add a coat of paint, and then come back on June 1 to put
them in the water for competition. The average length of the
boats is 12 feet.
"We always have a so much fun watching the kids go to

work and really be competitive," Van Den Breen said.
The regatta also is the largest fund-raiser for the coun-
ty's marine magnet school program, which last year earned
$10,000 from the event. This year, with more sponsors com-
ing on board, the regatta will be able to offer several $1,000
college scholarships to students pursuing marine careers.
"The schools have been able to use the money to build
things like a boat dock at the New River School and buy new
machinery at the high school," said Van Den Breen.
"It's been rewarding to me to see the enthusiasm grow
each year in the regatta and more and more students taking
part," he said, praising the corporate sponsors who donate
wood, caulk, paint and the like.
Frank Herhold, MIASF executive director, said Van
Den Breen's work' was given the "Award of Excellence"
because he has been "inspiring" to young people to pursue
marine industry careers."
"Brian is a man of enormous talent and drive," said
MIASF's Vawter, who nominated him for the National
Week of the Ocean honor for his community service. "I con-
tinue to admire not only his ability to build boats, but his
dedication to building the future of our marine industry."

Coast Guard asks the public to comment on trial bridge closings


doing individual bridges, the schedules don't work for the
boaters. We're trying to come up with something that will
work for the boaters and motorists."
But many motorists might not be aware of how diffi-
cult it is for boaters to wait at the bridges, Gridley said.
"We cross the bridges in our cars fairly frequently,"
she said. "It's a lot easier to sit in your car and wait than
in your boat. Someone who doesn't own a boat might not
understand that."
Recently, Gridley and her husband, Bob, missed the
opening by a minute or two at the Palmetto Park Bridge.
The couple had to wait in their 35-foot sailboat for 30
minutes. Before the restrictions, openings at the bridge
were on demand, she said.
"If these restrictions were imposed permanently, it
would greatly affect the boating industry," Gridley said.
"The length of time it would take to go up and down the
Intracoastal would be a determent."
M.F. Sullivan, another boater from Lighthouse Point,
said the restricted openings have already caused him to
avoid traveling north.
"On several occasions I was going to go up that way,

The restrictions end June 15 when
all affected bridges will return to
regularly scheduled openings.
but I changed my plans," said Sullivan, who owns a 21-
foot runabout and a 36-foot sailboat.
On his last visit to the Camino Real Bridge, Sullivan
said there were lots of boats waiting to get through.
"It creates unsafe conditions," he said. "The bridge is
near the inlet, meaning there is a high amount of current."
Don Winans, marine representative for the Boca
Harbor Homeowners Association, owns a 35-foot center
console that fits underneath the bridges. But his neighbors
in Boca Harbor, a waterfront community in east Boca
Raton, have higher boats.
"When I go out on the water now, I see five to 10
boats waiting at a bridge," Winans said. "I've never seen
that many waiting before. Maybe, before there was one
boat. This is a safety hazard."
If the restricted openings are made permanent,
boaters cruising through Boca Raton might in for a double
whammy.

the Intracoastal from the Boca-Delray Beach line to
Marker 57 could even further slow down boat traffic,
Winans said.
Presently, only Marker 57 to the Boca Inlet is slow
speed. "Essentially, if this proposal goes into effect all of
Boca Raton and Highland Beach would be a slow speed or
no wake zone," he said.
The creation of a slow wake or slow speed zone is on
hold, however. Boca Raton city officials recently agreed to
conduct public hearings on whether to fund a study of
manatees to determine if a speed reduction is warranted,
Winans said.
If Boca Raton moves ahead, Highland Beach has
offered to contribute monies toward the study, he said.
"If the speeds are reduced and the bridge times are
restricted, it will create more boat traffic," Winans said.
"It's going to be a mess."

Paddlers aim to share bay's beauty by devising kayaking route


I[;,i^;li~il:hfNl
environmental awareness about the value, beauty and his-
tory of Biscayne Bay through education and outreach pro-
grams for Miami's residents and visitors. In addition to
kicking off the Discover Biscayne Bay campaign, the
eight-day water trek will raise funds for Biscayne Bay
habitat restoration and education projects sponsored by
Citizens for a Better South Florida through sponsorships
and pledges."
An urge to do it in a period of good weather hurried the
project, so only about $4,000 of a $10,000 goal had been
pledged by the time the voyageurs set out on Sunday,
March 30.
The rest of the money should come easily if their suc-
cess in obtaining non-financial support is a good measure.
From their professional and social networks, Ordenes, Reed
and Schuemann acquired enough overnight shelter and food
to minimize roughing it and dining only on peanut butter
and jelly sandwiches. Cape Florida State Park and Biscayne
National Park granted atypical courtesies.
Waiting out the wind that first night and second day at
Key Biscayne, the paddlers decided to buck the weather just
a little. A friend of a friend had given them permission to
stay on the deck of his Stiltsville place. Even though it
would knock only a mile or so off the next .day's paddle, it
seemed like a good idea at the time so they did it.
Ordenes' log, again:


"The winds were so strong that night that we were all
concerned that my tent would fly away with me in it. Even
after tying it down, every corer lifted like a magic carpet
desperate to find its master. So much for sleeping."
Here she is again, recording day four:
"We left Elliot Key and paddled to Adams Key for
lunch (more PB&J). We decided to enter into Jones Lagoon
for a little tour and hopefully find our way through, back to
the Bay. Good teamwork and Stuart's ability to stand in his
kayak proved useful in finding our way out of the mangrove
lagoon. Jones Lagoon is definitely a must for any paddler."
Waiting out the weather on the second day reduced the
planned time for rest and exploration the rest of the way.
Everyone knew the trip would be physically demanding, but
it began to exceed expectations:
"The day progressed nicely but I started to feel fatigued
crossing Card Sound. It was a large body of choppy water
that day with 15 to 20 knot winds coming from the east to
northeast. The Card Sound bridge, our final destination,
always seemed like it was moving farther away instead of
closer. I was a tired pup."
The paddlers made it to Alabama Jack's, the funky
landmark saloon on Card Sound Road, and were eager to
feed on conch fritters there. Instead, they were met by Rod
Jude, a Sierra Club board member who took them in a
powerboat to the vacation home of Joe and Nancy Hoyt on
Linderman Key, a private island at the northwest tip of
Key Largo.


The Hoyts had agreed to let the paddlers spend the
night in a guest cabin, Jude told them, and he had trapped
some stone crabs for them. That sounded splendid, but it
got better:
"Joe and Nancy welcomed us into their home with
affection and grace. They purchased lots of wine and extra
food for our stay; they played Van Morrison on the CD and
we all danced the night away under the stars on their private
island called Linderman Key...
"In the morning we awoke to hot coffee, orange juice,
bagels with chive cream cheese and fresh Nova thanks to
Rod again. Stuart led a brisk yoga class on the dock that
faced the sun as it was rising in the early morning."

to lead another voyage if enough people want to go.

Paddling a kayak looks easy, but learn first. This trip
calls for technical sea skills and practice. Southeast

New Bedford, Mass: Whaling history and Portuguese delicacies


By TERRY CONWAY
Waterfront News Writer
During -much of the 19th century, New Bedford,
Mass. was recognized as the "Whaling Capital of the
World." Its square-riggers traveled for years on end to all
parts of the globe in pursuit of whale oil to fuel lamps and
streetlights.
The town's waterfront teemed with sailors and trades
people attracted by the whaling industry's promise of pros-
perity. At the height of the whaling era, it's said that New
Bedford enjoyed the highest income per capital worldwide.
Its broad residential avenues sparkled with the striking man-
sions and fanciful gardens of wealthy ship merchants.
in January 1841, a 21-year old seaman named Herman
Melville set sail from New Bedford aboard the whaler
Acushnet, bound for the Pacific. Five years later he played
out the events of the journey in a series of books beginning
with "Typee" and culminating in "Moby Dick" in 1851,
often called America's greatest novel.
Today, several sites depicted in the book can still be vis-
ited: the Seaman's Bethel with its prow-shaped pulpit; the
handsome mansions of Quaker ship owners such as Rotch-
Jones-Duff Harris; and the environs of the African-
American church into which Ishmel stumbled as he was
searching for lodging.
A coastal city residing midway between Boston and
Providence, R.I., New Bedford is home to one of New
England's largest Portuguese communities, with 60,000 of
the town's 100,000 residents.of Portuguese heritage. Their
ancestors, many of them fishermen on whaling ships, migrat-
ed here as a port of both entry and opportunity.
So it's no surprise that much of New Bedford's culture
and food reflects its Portuguese heritage. The city hosts the
oldest and grandest festival of Portuguese culture in the
nation, the Feast of the Blessed Sacrament.
Begun in 1915, the four-day festival attracts more than
200,000 visitors in late July. It features parades, musical per-
formances everything from traditional Portuguese music to
rock, jazz and pop and a huge.barbeque that's fortified with
casks of sweet Madeiran wine imported just for the event.
New Bedford still owes its living to the sea and its water-

front reflects it. Don't expect to wander through clusters of
trendy shops, boutiques and restaurants at the harbor's edge.
The seaport city is home to one of America's leading fishing
and scalloping fleets; each morning the city wharves are
jammed with fishing boats whose crews are busy readying
their rugged vessel for that day's haul.
Preserving the city's legacy was no easy task. During the
late 1960s when buildings were being leveled to make way
for urban renewal, a determined pack of citizens banded
together to stymie a number of proposed development pro-
jects, sparing New Bedford's history and neighborhoods.
In 1996 President Clinton signed the law that established
the New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park, run by
both the city and the National Park Service. The 13-block
waterfront district is at the center of the town's revival, home
to a variety of museums and smaller cultural institutions as
well asrestaurants, shops, galleries and vibrant nightspots.
The Visitor's Center, once the old Fish Auction House,
is worth a stop. One of the city's self-guided architectural
tours includes the Rotch-Jones-Duff House & Garden
Museum. Built in 1834 for whaling merchant William Rotch,
Jr., this Greek revival mansion is located on a full city block
of formal gardens with period rooms that reflect 150 years of
the economic and social evolution of the city.
Adjacent to the Visitor's Center is the Freestone's City
Grill, an 1877 stone landmark where the bartender will pour


you a pint of Buzzard Ale.
The former bank building offers award-winning chow-
der, Black Angus steaks, local seafood and creative salads.
The Candlework Restaurant along with its 19th century
decor of granite walls, post and beam ceilings, specializes in
gourmet Italian American cuisine. The site once manufac-
tured spermaceti candles (smokeless and odorless) from the
raw oil of sperm whales.
Along the main drag, Acushnet Avenue, there are some
terrific Portuguese eateries. Locals flock to the Angolan BBQ,
known for its spicy stews and a chicken dish topped with a
gindungho pepper sauce. Antonio's serves up north Portugal
fare, try a casserole of pork with littleneck clams and shrimp,
or skewers of scallops and linguica. At scores of take-out
places you can pick up a bag of malassadas: a hot dough
flecked with sugar similar to doughnuts minus the hole.
Located on Johnny Cake Hill at the national park, the
New Bedford Whaling Museum houses the world's largest
collection of whaling paraphernalia. Exhibits tell the story of
how New Bedford "lighted the world," when whale blubber
was rendered into oil at high temperatures aboard ship, then
transported to fuel lamps until it was replaced by kerosene
and gas in the 1860s.
Check out a 66-foot, rare blue whale skeleton and the
display of scrimshaw. Whale men on voyages spent countless
hours carving and scratching decorations on sperm whale
teeth, whalebone and ballen, used in producing skirt hoops
and buggy whips. Also on display is the Lagoda, an 89-foot,
half-scale replica of a square-rigged whaler complete down
to its hand-sewn sails. You'll also find extensive collections
of period art glass, logbooks, photographs, and paintings of
the region and whaling industry.
New Bedford has preserved the story of its early settlers,
whaling merchants and mariner forefathers in a fitting tribute
to Herman Melville's lifetime quest of learning.
