"Of course. Definitely. How could we not? It's tradition," said Messingschlager who will enter the Mr. Bobb, named for the family business, Bobb's Pianos and Organs, in the Winterfest Boat Parade on Saturday, Dec. 10, and the Pompano Beach Holiday Boat Parade on Dec. 11. He knows a few things about festooning. The Messingschlager home, decked from curb to tree tops, is consistently listed in the top 10 best-decorated homes in South Florida. When it comes to tricking out your boat in brilliant light, Messingschlager offers two important tips. "No hammering. No nails." Joe Bird of Pompano Beach who owned a holiday home decorating company for 10 years, agrees. He and his sons annually help decorate nearly every home in the 2700 block of Southeast Sixth Street in Pompano Beach. "Duct tape and plastic ties are your friends," Bird said. He warns that boats, electricity and constant movement can pose real problems. Messingschlager advises having enough generators on board to keep lights powered through the entire route. He also said to avoid using cheap lights that will likely black out in rain or heavy ocean mist. "Forget blow-up decorations, too. You can do whatever you want, but blow-ups block the view." Not to mention, they can blow away. "You can have people dancing and singing on the deck all night but there is nothing you can do about what rain and wind do in a minute," he said. Imagination "When we were younger we would experiment with a string of lights and flasher to make trains look like they are moving or make bells seem to ring," Bird said. "Bigger is not always better. Donald Trump might not agree but a person with imagination who is not afraid to be creative and do something new could trump a Trump." Bird tries to attend every boat parade South Florida has to offer and he never misses the Pompano Beach event, which illuminates the water with 50 to 70 boats. Gwen Leys, this year's co-chair with her husband Richard Leys of the Pompano Beach parade, suggests that beginners start simple, learn slowly and work themselves up year by year to outrageously spectacular. "We want everyone to be stress-free and simply have a fantastic fun time," said Leys. "Besides," she whispered, "there are so many categories in the parade so just about everyone gets a prize anyway." Messingschlager said he has the "theme" part down pat. Every year he dubs his style, "My Way." "It's not about the song, "My Way," it's that I just do it my way. Whatever way it goes is the way it is my way," Messingschlager said. Boats go for bling effects in upcoming parades "We'd like to get it ready for Intracoastal and New River use only and to enter it in the Fort Lauderdale Boat Parade," said Anthony Petriello, associate dean of automotive and marine programs at the school. "It will be all our students' work. We're going to restore the Lunds' donation and make it a really nice boat again." LMC operations manager Jim Parks said the boat will be a huge benefit to the program. "This allows the students to step up to a boat that is more representative of the kinds of vessels they will be working on when they graduate," he said. "It's going to allow these kids to get in on the ground floor of boat repair." Broward College, one of just seven schools in the national Marine League of Schools, began its marine program in 2008 with just 20 students. The program now has over 50 attending three sessions. The program is also accredited by the American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC). Graduates earn not only a diploma but also ABYC-certification, which allows them to go to work immediately in the industry. ABYC president Skip Burdon said the marine DOUGLAS JORDAN For Waterfront Times Students enrolled in Broward College's marine technology program are getting a much-needed hands-on experience thanks to a generous local couple. Rick and Deb Lund of Davie donated Uplynx, their 1983, 31-foot Bertram Flybridge cruiser, to the college's marine program in October, giving it a second life as a floating laboratory for college students. Recently a towboat eased Uplynx out of slip D-3 at the Hollywood City Marina and into the Intracoastal. She was then towed into the New River and through downtown Fort Lauderdale to a new home at the Lauderdale Marine Center, (LMC) where students were waiting to get to work. As soon as the travel lift got the boat out of the water, several students began pressure cleaning and scraping the hull. They will also repair all operating systems and electronics as well as doing much-needed brightwork. Broward College student Lazaro Valdes said having the Uplynx to work on is a benefit for marine technology students. The plan is to restore Uplynx to prime condition.

Catchers can't be keepers until next year. Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissioners voted in November to open that fishery year-around, based on stock assessments indicating statewide abundance of the popular species. The new rules take effect next Feb. 1, formerly the first day of North Florida's one-month closed season. In the larger southern region south of the Fred Howard Causeway at Tarpon Springs on the Gulf coast and the Volusia-Flagler county line on the Atlantic the current November-December closed season stays in effect for the rest of this year. That might explain why sea trout were so easy to catch last month and presumably will be easy again this month, provided that you find them first. They're one of our most accommodating fish, usually indifferent to extremes of cold and heat, lunar phases, wind speed, even tidal stage. An active school will rush almost anything you offer: live or dead bait, plugs, spoons, jigs, jig-and-tail combinations or flies resembling live bait. The plain old-fashioned popping cork (now styrofoam) rig, sold for pocket change in plain old-fashioned bait stores, is still great. Even more so are modern versions with bigger bobbers and clicking beads, sold in serious tackle shops for the price of a decent lunch. Our favorite trout locations are grass flats and anywhere a current whips around a point of land or mangroves. In very shallow water, use skimmer jigs with weed guards and hooks that ride up to reduce snagging on sea grass. Size limits are staying the same. Keepers have to be at least 15 to 20 inches total length, except that you can keep one longer than 20 inches. The northeast region bag limit will increase from five fish to six. Anywhere else, it will still be four trout per day per person. For new commercial trout fishing regulations and background to the FWC's action, see http://myfwc.com/fishing/saltwater/regulations/spotted-seatrout/" If you don't know a manatee from a man o' war, it's time to learn. We get lots of both in wintertime, and it's important for fishing-doers and boaters to know the difference and watch out for both, for different reasons. The manatee is the official marine mammal of the state of Florida. The man o'war could qualify as official nuisance of the beaches, but it hasn't the organization, marketing savvy or political influence to achieve that status, uh, officially. If you touch a man o' war it stings, sometimes very painfully. If your jetski or powerboat hits one, you're not likely to notice or feel guilty. You can't do that to a manatee. They're protected by law, which is why the FWC is reminding us to watch but don't touch. One way to avoid harm is to obey speed zone signs lots of new ones along the Intracoastal Waterway and plenty of older ones along channels that lead to marinas and inland canals. Slowing down doesn't relieve us of the responsibility of watching where we're going. Manatees have a few ways to signal their presence. When they wag their large, flat tails they make a flat spot on the water's surface. Sometimes it's a line of swirls, a mud trail, a snout or a tail breaking the surface. Other times you'll see a brownish mass that looks like a big, long rock just beneath the surface. That's not a rock, it's a manatee. If you see only one, there's probably another close by or a little deeper. Here is R. Kipp Frohlich, the FWC's man in charge of managing imperiled species: "If you think you see a manatee, please slow down and give the animal plenty of room because it may not be alone. It may have a calf or be traveling with other manatees." If you're on the water on a cold dayair temperature 50 degrees, water temps 68 or lower that's when Burgeoning spotted sea trout to be under new rules SEE SEA TROUT | PAGE 4 Photo | David S.

Like snook and some other cold-sensitive fish, they'll continue inland until they find comfortable temperatures, often gathering at a lock and dam because that's as far as they can go. From land, it's also the best kind of place to see them close up, this side of Sarasota. In Sarasota you can watch them eating enormous amounts of romaine lettuce in the aquarium of Mote Marine Laboratory at 1600 Ken Thompson Parkway. What must we do if we see a distressed or injured manatee? This: Phone the Wildlife Alert hotline, 888-404FWCC (3922) or send a text to Tip@MyFWC.com You can also use a cell phone to call #FWC or *FWC, depending on your service provider's method. Nearly everyone knows Mr. Someone, who's always squawking about those lowlifes who fill buckets and coolers with any fish they can hook, no matter how small, as if there were no laws. They fish from shore, they fish from bridges, and they fish from boats. They wreck the resource. Col. Jim Brown, director of the FWC's Division of Law Enforcement, announced that FWC's Wildlife Alert people are taking text messages, the best way to report violations in real time. You don't have to wait for someone to answer the phone. You don't have to worry about being overheard. The text address is Tip@myFWC.com, same as for injured manatees. "The text-messaging option makes it more convenient for the public," Brown said. "We also hope it will name and you won't be made to testify in court. You'll be given a code number, so if there's eventually a reward you can claim it by text, email or phone. The maximum is $1,000. Everglades National Park is seeking volunteers for two moderately rugged trail clearing projects on Saturdays in December. Dec. 10 Help the Swamp Apes, headed by volunteer naturalist Tom Rahill, to clear more of the Bear Lake Canoe Trail, a project in progress for three years. Dec. 17 Participate in clearing the Anhinga and Gumbo Limbo walking trails at Pine Island. Contact Volunteer Coordinator Kevin Bowles Mohr at 305-242-7752 or email Kevin_Bowles_Mohr@nps.gov for more information, and to be notified of future volunteer projects. SEA TROUT | FROM PAGE 3 make Wildlife Alert even more effective in catching poachers and other violators." Mr. Someone doubts that anyone will arrive in time if he does holler cop, but real-time texting can give wildlife officers enough info to follow up even if they're late. That depends on someone providing useful details, which he can do by texting without fear of the lowlifes overhearing him as he describes them. For all they know, he's checking football scores on his phone, or trying to borrow money. FWC spokesman Bob Wattendorf said the first text message should report the specific violation and the location as accurately as possible, then describe the violators and their vehicles. Wildlife Alert dispatchers, who are on duty all the time, will text back for other details. The rest of the plan works just like your local Crime Stoppers hotline.

Specializing in the Diving Industry ARNOLD MARKOWITZ Waterfront Times Columnist It's bad enough that Biscayne National Park's longterm plans include a 10,522-acre no-fishing zone over reefs on the ocean side of Elliott Key, or maybe one twice that size. It's worse that those plans, introduced at public hearings in mid-September, were made without consulting the state of Florida. The Biscayne and National Park Service people who carefully wrote and colorfully mapped four alternative General Management Plans, three of them with offshore "marine reserves," intended to solve problems caused by overfishing. Too bad they didn't tell FWC what they were up to. Excluding the state from the management plan's preparation was no mere protocol error, easily overcome by an expedient apology. The state and the park have a long-standing deal, due for renewal next September, for the state's active involvement in Biscayne's fishing rules. Roughly half of the park's territory was given by the state in 1970. The agreement, called a "Memo of Understanding" or MOU, says the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the park will consult with each other. The state "will play a crucial role" in new regulations and other fishery management actions in the national park. It also acknowledges the state's opposition to nofishing zones, and it specifies that no marine reserves will be established unless FWC and the park agree that's absolutely necessary, a last resort. The state doesn't agree it's necessary. Maybe it would, but Biscayne hasn't asked it to, or provided data to prove it, FWC executive director Nick Wiley complained in a letter objecting to the management plan. He cites nine other potential violations of the MOUpark management proposals that would directly or indirectly restrict fishing, all written without consulting the state. Mark Lewis, superintendent of Biscayne, points to that same MOU where it says FWC recognizes that the park intends to consider marine reserves "for purposes breeders, they fill the marine reserve with large numbers of fish that then swim out of the reserve and lead to greater catches adjacent to the zones, a process known as spillover...large fish often swim right up to snorkelers and divers, providing an experience unmatched throughout the rest of our coastal waters." That's what you ought to see in a tropical marine park, he wrote: "This plan, and this proposed MRZ are the only ways we know to fulfill that mission." That doesn't justify cutting the state out of the planning, does it? One rationale for it is that the no-fishing zones are proposed for the park's original 1968 territory when it was begun as a national monument. Quoting the Congressional act that created it, the plan asserts that Biscayne can impose fishing restrictions there "after consultation with appropriate officials of said state." Uh-oh. Appropriate officials of said state say there hasn't been any consultation, and they object. More of the park's excuse for ducking state participation is that the proposed no-fishing zone is a conservation and visitor experience issue, not a fishing issue. It says state involvement in fishing issues applies only to a separate fishery plan, not the general management plan. Hmmm, so a no-fishing zone is not a fishing issue? What nonsense! That's the sort of trick lawyers come up with, an argument using semantic hair-splitting to duck requirements and justify doing the wrong thing. It doesn't fool the FWC. Nick Wiley's 9-page complaint affirms the state agency won't take it lying down: "The proposed regulatory actions, combined with the lack of agency coordination, make it abundantly clear that the park's regulatory strategy is to address fisheries management issues within the context of the General Management Plan and outside of the framework of the Memo of Understanding and the Fisheries Management Plan," his complaint says. "There is no doubt the draft General Management Plan (GMP) proposes significant restrictions on fishing opportunities that should be addressed through the provisions of the MOU and the FMP." He wants the National Park Service to withdraw fishing and related provisions from the plan and work closely with FWC on proposals "that reflect a better balance between resource protection and the public interest." Lisa Gregg, a marine fisheries staff member who compiled the objections and drafted the letter, said FWC is ready to fight back through another federal process, the Coastal Zone Management Act (CZMA). That requires federal actions to be consistent with a state's federally approved coastal management program. Florida has one of those. The Wiley letter argues that federal actions proposed in the Biscayne plan are inconsistent with it. Lewis said the Park Service believes its plan is consistent with the still-active Memo of Understanding. other than sound fisheries management." What purposes? "Such as appropriate visitor experience in a national park," Lewis says, citing the belief that a no-fishing zone would allow fish and corals to grow to impressive sizes. That in turn would enhance enjoyment of Biscayne for snorkelers and divers. Nice, but the memo of understanding doesn't say making a no-fishing zone for that reason would be none of the state's business. If it did, the state wouldn't have agreed. "We certainly cannot support a marine reserve that closes large areas for fishing within BNP until less restrictive fisheries management measures have been considered and tried," the FWC letter says. FWC knows very well that fishing quality in the park has declined over the years, with fewer and smaller fish reported by each annual survey. Corals have been damaged and destroyed by careless anchoring. That might require drastic solutions but, as we've often argued here, solutions less drastic than no-fishing zones should be tested first. It's just good sense, even without that MOU requiring it. The rationale for marine reserves is that they work. Lewis reiterated it in a recent internal newsletter for park staff: "As fish become larger and become more prolific State left in the dark over Biscayne management proposals PARK AND MARINA BEAUTIFUL SURROUNDINGS 3000 ft.AVAILABLE 7 ft.DRAFT 2323 SR 84 Ft Lauderdale,FL 33312 30 50 AMP SERVICE SECURITY LONG OR SHORT TERM (954) 583-5818 P REMIUM H ARDWOODS P LYWOODS V ENEERS L AMINATES Wood-Chip Marine Lumber & Supplies 3301 South Andrews Avenue,Bay 8,Fort Lauderdale,Florida 33316 (954) 522-1481 Officewoodchip2@earthlink.net (954) 522-7269 Faxwww.woodchiplumber.com Damage from boat propellers is visible in this photo of Biscayne National Park.

6 WATERFRONTTIMES.COM December2011 Waterfront Times BY MARK ERCOLIN Waterfront Times Columnist Good grief! Is it the holiday season again? It seems like August was just yesterday when all the stores started putting up those festive decorations. As so aptly pointed out by Peanuts' Charlie Brown, commercialism can ruin the holidays. But a good time can be had if we keep our perspective and thoughts to the people and things that really matter to us. This remains good advice even for boaters. Sure, we can just as easily be whisked away by the glitz, lighting, parades and parties that the holiday season has to offer. But when you own a boat, you are strapped with an extra layer of responsibility. Possibly, holiday boat trips with friends and family are among the most memorable times you can have during the year. These excursions should be done safely and legally, so they do not become memorable for the wrong reasons. Seaworthiness is both a legal term and a term of art. Generally, a seaworthy vessel is defined as being reasonably fit for its intended purpose. This may sound rather broad (and depending on the circumstances, it can be), but for most recreational purposes it means that a boat should be kept in good working order, have sufficient and well maintained safety equipment and be manned by a competent and properly trained crew. While this is obvious to most good boaters, the holiday season can create specific scenarios requiring extra precautions. With that in mind, here are a few extra points to consider regarding seaworthiness during the holidays: Lighting: Sure, we all know that you should use your boat's navigation lights from dusk to dawn while underway. But during the holidays, many of us adorn our boats with seasonal decorations and festive lighting maybe even installing an animatronic Snoopy, Rudolph, or Grinch. These lights and toys look great while we're docked or in a properly supervised parade, but can be a potential safety concern if you're otherwise running your boat in the darkness. Think about it your navigation lights are installed at specific locations and shine in certain colors and arcs for a reason. If you're traveling on the water with holiday lights blinking, oncoming traffic can claim they couldn't tell if you were coming, going, or at anchor. Should an accident occur, you could be looking at liability problems because someone says they couldn't tell the difference between your port light and Rudolph's nose. So while underway, in most circumstances holiday lighting should be kept to a minimum. Allowing a young person to use your boat: That's right, during the holidays visiting friends and family members just might want to borrow your boat or personal watercraft. While anyone using your boat can create liability issues, a recent Florida statute makes young boat operators of particular concern. Anyone operating a vessel in Florida waters born Jan. 1, 1988 or after is required to have a boating safety education ID card unless they're under the supervision of someone with a card or is exempt to age. This statute also includes the use of personal watercraft, so generally no exemption would apply in that case anyway. Now, you could look at this statute as a ready-made excuse for not giving the boat keys to a young relative. But if BOB E. SHERMAN Waterfront Times Columnist The Fort Lauderdale Boat Show ended on Halloween. If you didn't go, I'm sure you witch you had. My wife thought it would be too depressing, so she stayed home. The good news is I was able to sell my extra tickets, which covered parking for two days and one beer. On Thursday I parked at War Memorial Auditorium and took the bus to the Broward Convention Center since it was the first one that came along. There was a long line at the entrance. A busload of boaters drove down from North Carolina without picture ID. Even with ID I was held up, as the attendant had to verify my complimentary guest ticket. I moved through the Convention Center quickly. Since I can't afford a new boat of any size, there's no sense looking at the small ones. A short bus ride took me to Bahia Mar to see the big yachts I can't afford. I even ran into Dan Marino. I saw him last at the Miami-Denver preseason game on Aug. 25, 1990. He didn't remember me. Judging from the crowds and all the new models, you wouldn't think the economy was in bad shape. There were 165 boat manufacturers displaying models from 9 to 245 feet. I dropped business cards in every fish bowl I came across. Thanks to LXR Luxury Marinas, I spent three days in bed after I threw my back out while running around my house taking pictures of Molly the Manatee for a photo contest. Now under heavy medication, I wait by the phone for the call to pick up the iPad that I expect to win. Aside from free tickets, the other reason I went to the show was to attend two receptions I was invited to. Thursday's event took place aboard the M/V DREAmer, sponsored by Boating Writers International. DREAmer is a 136-foot Hargrave yacht built in Turkey. The hors d'oeuvres were excellent, better than the pizza rolls and cocktail wieners I'm used to. As a dreamer, par excellence, I began rethinking my plan to share the Powerball with 21 relatives. I'm sure they would be just as happy visiting me on my yacht as receiving $250,000 a year. While waiting for the party to begin on DREAmer I boarded the Empress a 58-foot 1947 Consolidated motor yacht, a bargain at $495,000 considering the $1 million refit in 2000. I immediately lapsed into one of my daydreams where I was docked at Mystic Seaport sitting in the cockpit sipping a cold Yuengling. The broker woke me up and asked if I had any questions. It seems he had some real customers who wanted to look around. It's amazing the number of young ladies walking on floating docks in high heels or pushing baby strollers. I was also surprised at the amount of people who brought dogs. I know dogs love jazz and art festivals but didn't know they liked boat shows. Show Management's website clearly states "pets should be left at home" unless they are "licensed working dogs." None of the dogs I saw were wearing a service dog ID vest. Fido could have also been a search and rescue dog trained to find its owner who has caught her high heels on the floating dock and fallen overboard. I returned home Friday night to wait for the calls for my free gifts and the Powerball drawing Saturday. I still had two days to run back to the show and buy a new yacht but it didn't happen. Maybe at the next boat show. Bob E. Sherman can be e-mailed through www.bobesherman.com.

Mark Ercolin is a maritime attorney based in Fort Lauderdale. The information in this column is summary in nature and should not be applied to cases or situations. ADMIRALTY LAW | FROM PAGE 6 Being seaworthyduring the holidays marine program in 2008 with just 20 students. The program now has over 50 attending three sessions. The program is also accredited by the American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC). Graduates earn not only a diploma but also ABYC-certification, which allows them to go to work immediately in the industry. ABYC president Skip Burdon said the marine industry is hurting for qualified marine technicians and engineers, especially in South Florida. "While new marine production definitely dropped in 2007 with the crash of the economy, the yards in South Florida are still seeing a shortage of certified technicians," he said. "That's because in Broward County, and in Miami, there are quite a few outstanding boatyards that do refitting of older vessels." Burdon said that in the present economy many boat owners are refitting older boats and yachts because it's cheaper than buying new. He said many brands are good candidates for restoration. "Bertrams especially are wellconstructed, quality boats that are built to last many years. It's not unusual to see 40 and 50-year-old Bertams on the water, still looking good. But that also takes proficient technicians to work on them and keep them up to standard." The donation came about after Cathy Petowsky, LMC compliance and safety officer, learned that the Lunds were planning to dispose of the boat, which had aged and been vandalized. She suggested they instead donate it to the college program. Mark Pratt, LMC general manager, offered to provide dry dock, workspace and services to Broward College's program at their yard. Burdon said Broward College currently produces the most graduates of the Marine League. "They are definitely taking the lead," he said. "And that's good for the industry, especially in South Florida, where it's most needed. And what we get for the industry are safe and reliable boats."

NOAH ROSENBERG The New York Times Syndicate Quebec is a city of delightfully stark, yet virtually seamless contrasts; centuries-old fortification walls lead to chic open-kitchen restaurants, and cobblestone streets give way to bike paths and innovative art institutions. The enchanting Francophone capital of Quebec province, and one of the oldest cities in North America, Quebec City received a major facelift before its 400th anniversary in 2008. Perhaps more significant than the new boutique hotels, revitalized parks and gleaming cultural centers was the overdue attention the city finally received, which continues to propel it forward. Quebec City, a historic, cultural and culinary center beside the St. Lawrence River, has emerged from the long shadow cast by its everpopular neighbor, Montreal. Classics done right When it comes to cuisine, Quebec City might as well be Paris West, with its no-holds-barred amalgam of traditional French, native Quebecois and innovative farm-totable offerings. Best to start with the basics. On a narrow winding street in Old Quebec, Cafe Chez Temporel (25, rue Couillard; 418-694-1813) is a deliciously classic French cafe, with windows made for people-watching. The 36-year-old spot plays a gentle mix of folk and French music a lovely soundtrack for eating the perfect croissant (about $2 U.S. dollars) or a slice of quiche Lorraine with a salad ($8.75) and a cafe au lait ($2.75) among the locals. Scale the walls Feel history with your feet as you wander Old Quebec, a Unesco World Heritage Site with car-free streets, towering monuments and 17th-century homes. You can detour through the opulent lobby and cliffside boardwalk of the hotel Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac, but for a truly peerless perspective on the city's history and geography, you must do a little scrambling. Head up the staircase at the corner of Rue St.Louis and C™te de la Citadelle and climb onto the wide, grassy fortification wall that rings the old city. Walk north on the wall (one of the most intact defensive city walls in North America) among the cannons and the sunbathing, dog-walking, hand-holding residents. Hop off at Rue St.-Jean. lemoineechanson.com), even as plates of creme brulee, au foie gras and Catalan-style duck confit made their way out of the kitchen in this small five-year-old restaurant. The seasonal small-plates menu changes four times a year, depending on the selection of organic and natural wines in stock. Dinner for two, including wine, is about $120. For a down-homey alternative, head to La Cuisine (205, rue St.-Vallier Est; 418-523-3387; barlacuisine.com), a restaurant and bar outfitted like a retro university student's apartment. The vintage furniture is for sale and the kitchen is open, with a decades-old stove and a pair of microwaves churning out Quebecois comfort food like croque monsieur and casseroles. Dinner for two, with local beer, is about $30, live D.J., hip crowd, Nintendo and other diversions included. Quebecois cabaret For an artistically inspired night out, there's Le Cercle (228, rue St.-Joseph Est; 418-948-8648; lecercle.ca), a sleek industrial-modern space born of a 2009 merger between a wine bar and an adjacent performance venue. It offers live indie, rock, dance and folk music, and films, comedy shows and theater. (Admission ranges from free to $25.) The spot also features local art and Chocolate, books and beer With its colorful brick buildings and fashionable boutiques, bars and restaurants, the hilly Rue St.-Jean, beyond the old city, sheds its tourist tone and becomes the chic St.-Jean-Baptiste neighborhood. Stop at Choco-Musee Erico (634, rue St.-Jean; 418-524-2122; chocomusee.com) for a cocoa history primer and savor a buttery-smooth chocolate filled with pecans and salted caramel. Then peruse the classics and future classics among the secondhand books at the Librairie St.-Jean-Baptiste (565, rue St.-Jean; 581-999-095; librairiesjb.com), a bookstore-cum-coffee-shop and beer bar. Finally, quench your thirst on the art-filled terrace at Bar Le Sacrilege (447, rue St.-Jean; 418-649-1985; lesacrilege.net), with 13 local beers and one cider on tap. Wine-driven dining "It's all about the wine," said a waiter-sommelier at Le Moine Echanson (585, rue St.-Jean; 418-524-7832; Overlooking the St. Lawrence River, with a view of the Fairmont Le Chteau Frontenac.

Indie revival Start your day in the St.-Roch neighborhood, where urban decay has yielded to a gentrifying blend of government investment and pioneering artists and entrepreneurs. Grab a bite at Bistrot Le Clocher Penche (203 rue St.-Joseph Est, 418-640-0597, clocherpenche.ca), a bistro whose name is a homage to "the leaning steeple" across the street. The blood sausage, soft-boiled egg and poached pear over a puff pastry ($17; coffee and yogurt parfait included) is excellent. Then wander into the nearby Boutique Lucia F (422, rue Caron; 418-648-9785), a vintage clothing shop, with nary an item over $100. Just down the Rue St.-Joseph is Morgan Bridge (367, rue du Pont; 418-529-1682, morganbridge.ca), a gallery of Quebec City and Montreal street and comic art that sells locally made T-shirts, music and books. For a highbrow alternative, visit La Chambre Blanche (185, rue Christophe-Colomb Est; 418-529-2715; chambreblanche.qc.ca), an art collective that features the work of its current international resident artists and displays the portfolios of those it has hosted since 1982. Hyperlocal beer La Barberie (310, rue St.-Roch; 418-522-4373; labarberie.com), in the St.-Roch neighborhood, is one of the best and most beloved among a growing number of microbreweries in the city, with a recently expanded outdoor patio. The cooperative brews 30 to 50 beers a year, ranging from a tasty India Pale Ale to sangria, chardonnay and tea-flavored varieties. For the full experience, order a $16 carousel with five ounces of each of the eight different beers on tap. A hot ticket Bistro B (1144 Avenue Cartier; 418-614-5444; bistrob.ca), the elegantly modern yet cheerfully communal new restaurant from Franois Blais the rockstar chef who opened Panache, one of the city's most renowned dining spots has superb food, design and service. The menu changes daily, but you can't go wrong ordering the tartare du jour and the duck breast, which on a recent night was served in a white wine sauce with a butternut squash puree and purple broccoli. For dessert, try the cheesecake, heavy in chocolate, with an accent of raspberry sorbet. Dinner for two, with wine, is roughly $130. Reservations recommended. See the scene On the nearby Grande Allee, a stretch of nightclubs exerts a fierce gravitational pull for exotic cars, by Chez Ashton (640 Grande-Allee Est; 418-522-3449; chez-ashton.com) for late-night poutine (French fries drowned in gravy and cheese curds) like any good Quebecois clubgoer should. To market, to market Antiques, art and trinkets. That's the Rue St.-Paul, in the Old Port neighborhood. But those worlds collide quite cleverly in Machin Chouette (225, rue St.-Paul; 418525-9898; machinchouette.com), French for "Cute Machine." The design shop sells handmade pieces, like a lamp made from an antique tricycle ($620). For culinary creativity, cross the street to Le Marche du Vieux-Port (160, Quai St.-Andre; 418-692-2517; marchevieuxport.com), a sprawling market where chefs and tourists browse stands of local seafood, meats, cheeses, produce and pastries. Along the coast Quebec is perhaps best experienced on two wheels. For $18 for two hours, rent a hybrid bike in the Old Port at Velo Passe-Sport Plein Air (80, rue Quai St.-Andre; 418296-3643; velopasse-sport.com). Cruise the paths along the river to the Baie de Beauport, a recreational park with kayaks, pedal boats and sailboat rentals. From there, continue on to the Parc Lineaire, a network of cycling and walking paths that follow the St. Charles tributary of the St. Lawrence River, past gardens and kite-flying children a perfect end to the day. celebrity clientele and acrobatic dancers dangling from ceilings. Try Savini Resto-Bar Vinoteque (680, Grande-Allee Est; 418-647-4747; savini.ca, no cover) or Maurice Nightclub (575, Grande-Allee Est; 418647-2000; mauricenightclub.com, free to $5).

F&J Fuel Company 954-987-4212 In Miami-Dade & Broward County Francophile Quebec City offers food that rivals Paris State view may differ from park staff Citing the CZMA is a reluctant choice for the FWC. "We just don't prefer to use it because it is usually our tool of last resort," Gregg said."There could have been ample coordination on these issues ahead of time that would have prevented us from having to go this route." The CZMA also can work as a backstop for the state in case the Park Service decides let the Memo of Understanding expire, unrenewed, next September, shutting the state out altogether. The Park Service might also use that prospect as leverage to obtain a new agreement giving itself more control of fishing. By resorting further to the CZMA, the state would delay the management plan's implementation, now timetabled tentatively for next fall. It's been in the works since 2003, while the park continues operating under an outdated general management plan enacted in 1983. Then we would have two governments staring each other down, waiting to see who blinks. None of that would be good. Why did the National Park Service, or Biscayne's own staff we don't know whose idea it was or who approved it choose to bypass the state? Impatience is our only guess right now. It's easy to imagine someone deciding that something drastic had to be done about overfishing pretty quickly and that consulting the state would take too long. Lisa Gregg said a conference call, the first attempt to negotiate the dispute, was scheduled for Nov. 30. Wiley's letter was dated Oct. 10 addressed to Sally Mann, the state's director of environmental protection, not to Lewis and the Park Service, but they know all about it by now. We can infer that Lewis and National Park Service people up the chain of command know Biscayne's cooperative relationship with Florida is bobbing between shallow reefs at low tide. Let's see how much they think it matters. Do you want to praise this column? Denounce it? The author invites responses to witzfish@att.net. BISCAYNE | FROM PAGE 5

11 December2011 WATERFRONTTIMES.COM Waterfront Times When it comes to celebrations, there's no season quite like the holiday season. Wilton share party tips and recipes to help create a cocktail buffet with all the trimmings. "It looks like it would take lots of time and effort, but it really doesn't," says Nancy Siler, vice president of consumer affairs at Wilton. "We've worked out all the details to make it easy, elegant and delicious." Siler suggests setting up a beverage station so guests can serve themselves, or recruit a friend to help prepare and serve your signature cocktails sugar-rimmed Cheery Cranberry Mojitos and colorful All Aglow Melontinis that twinkle with sparkle gel. And for a warm beverage choice, offer rich, thick hot chocolate garnished with frosty snowmen, peppermint curls or chocolate candy-coated marshmallows. "When it comes to the food, a mix of savory and sweet is a must," Siler adds.

Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until the top of the donuts spring back when touched. Let cool in pan 4-5 minutes before removing. Wash and dry pan, prepare with pan spray and paprika. Repeat with remaining batter. For topping, mash avocado with limejuice and salt; stir until smooth using a whisk or in a food processor. Pipe avocado mixture over top of cooled donuts.

Of course. Definitely. How could we not? Its tradition, said Messingschlager who will enter the Mr. Bobb, named for the family business, Bobbs Pianos and Organs, in the Winterfest Boat Parade on Saturday, Dec. 10, and the Pompano Beach Holiday Boat Parade on Dec. 11. He knows a few things about festooning. The Messingschlager home, decked from curb to tree tops, is consistently listed in the top 10 best-decorated homes in South Florida. When it comes to tricking out your boat in brilliant light, Messingschlager offers two important tips. No hammering. No nails. Joe Bird of Pompano Beach who owned a holiday home decorating company for 10 years, agrees. He and his sons annually help decorate nearly every home in the 2700 block of Southeast Sixth Street in Pompano Beach. Duct tape and plastic ties are your friends, Bird said. He warns that boats, electricity and constant movement can pose real problems. Messingschlager advises having enough generators on board to keep lights powered through the entire route. He also said to avoid using cheap lights that will likely black out in rain or heavy ocean mist. Forget blow-up decorations, too. You can do whatever you want, but blow-ups block the view. Not to mention, they can blow away. You can have people dancing and singing on the deck all night but there is nothing you can do about what rain and wind do in a minute, he said. Imagination When we were younger we would experiment with a string of lights and flasher to make trains look like they are moving or make bells seem to ring, Bird said. Bigger is not always better. Donald Trump might not agree but a person with imagination who is not afraid to be creative and do something new could trump a Trump. Bird tries to attend every boat parade South Florida has to offer and he never misses the Pompano Beach event, which illuminates the water with 50 to 70 boats. Gwen Leys, this years co-chair with her husband Richard Leys of the Pompano Beach parade, suggests that beginners start simple, learn slowly and work themselves up year by year to outrageously spectacular. We want everyone to be stress-free and simply have a fantastic fun time, said Leys. Besides, she whispered, there are so many categories in the parade so just about everyone gets a prize anyway. Messingschlager said he has the theme part down pat. Every year he dubs his style, My Way. Its not about the song, My Way, its that I just do it my way. Whatever way it goes is the way it is my way, Messingschlager said. Boats go for bling effects in upcoming parades Wed like to get it ready for Intracoastal and New River use only and to enter it in the Fort Lauderdale Boat Parade, said Anthony Petriello, associate dean of automotive and marine programs at the school. It will be all our students work. Were going to restore the Lunds donation and make it a really nice boat again. LMC operations manager Jim Parks said the boat will be a huge benefit to the program. This allows the students to step up to a boat that is more representative of the kinds of vessels they will be working on when they graduate, he said. Its going to allow these kids to get in on the ground floor of boat repair. Broward College, one of just seven schools in the national Marine League of Schools, began its marine program in 2008 with just 20 students. The program now has over 50 attending three sessions. The program is also accredited by the American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC). Graduates earn not only a diploma but also ABYC-certification, which allows them to go to work immediately in the industry. ABYC president Skip Burdon said the marine DOUGLAS JORDAN For Waterfront Times Students enrolled in Broward Colleges marine technology program are getting a much-needed hands-on experience thanks to a generous local couple. Rick and Deb Lund of Davie donated Uplynx, their 1983, 31-foot Bertram Flybridge cruiser, to the colleges marine program in October, giving it a second life as a floating laboratory for college students. Recently a towboat eased Uplynx out of slip D-3 at the Hollywood City Marina and into the Intracoastal. She was then towed into the New River and through downtown Fort Lauderdale to a new home at the Lauderdale Marine Center, (LMC) where students were waiting to get to work. As soon as the travel lift got the boat out of the water, several students began pressure cleaning and scraping the hull. They will also repair all operating systems and electronics as well as doing much-needed brightwork. Broward College student Lazaro Valdes said having the Uplynx to work on is a benefit for marine technology students. The plan is to restore Uplynx to prime condition.

Catchers cant be keepers until next year. Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissioners voted in November to open that fishery year-around, based on stock assessments indicating statewide abundance of the popular species. The new rules take effect next Feb. 1, formerly the first day of North Floridas one-month closed season. In the larger southern region south of the Fred Howard Causeway at Tarpon Springs on the Gulf coast and the Volusia-Flagler county line on the Atlantic the current November-December closed season stays in effect for the rest of this year. That might explain why sea trout were so easy to catch last month and presumably will be easy again this month, provided that you find them first. Theyre one of our most accommodating fish, usually indifferent to extremes of cold and heat, lunar phases, wind speed, even tidal stage. An active school will rush almost anything you offer: live or dead bait, plugs, spoons, jigs, jig-and-tail combinations or flies resembling live bait. The plain old-fashioned popping cork (now styrofoam) rig, sold for pocket change in plain old-fashioned bait stores, is still great. Even more so are modern versions with bigger bobbers and clicking beads, sold in serious tackle shops for the price of a decent lunch. Our favorite trout locations are grass flats and anywhere a current whips around a point of land or mangroves. In very shallow water, use skimmer jigs with weed guards and hooks that ride up to reduce snagging on sea grass. Size limits are staying the same. Keepers have to be at least 15 to 20 inches total length, except that you can keep one longer than 20 inches. The northeast region bag limit will increase from five fish to six. Anywhere else, it will still be four trout per day per person. For new commercial trout fishing regulations and background to the FWCs action, see http://myfwc.com/fishing/saltwater/regulations/spotted-seatrout/" If you dont know a manatee from a man o war, its time to learn. We get lots of both in wintertime, and its important for fishing-doers and boaters to know the difference and watch out for both, for different reasons. The manatee is the official marine mammal of the state of Florida. The man owar could qualify as official nuisance of the beaches, but it hasnt the organization, marketing savvy or political influence to achieve that status, uh, officially. If you touch a man o war it stings, sometimes very painfully. If your jetski or powerboat hits one, youre not likely to notice or feel guilty. You cant do that to a manatee. Theyre protected by law, which is why the FWC is reminding us to watch but dont touch. One way to avoid harm is to obey speed zone signs lots of new ones along the Intracoastal Waterway and plenty of older ones along channels that lead to marinas and inland canals. Slowing down doesnt relieve us of the responsibility of watching where were going. Manatees have a few ways to signal their presence. When they wag their large, flat tails they make a flat spot on the waters surface. Sometimes its a line of swirls, a mud trail, a snout or a tail breaking the surface. Other times youll see a brownish mass that looks like a big, long rock just beneath the surface. Thats not a rock, its a manatee. If you see only one, theres probably another close by or a little deeper. Here is R. Kipp Frohlich, the FWCs man in charge of managing imperiled species: If you think you see a manatee, please slow down and give the animal plenty of room because it may not be alone. It may have a calf or be traveling with other manatees. If youre on the water on a cold dayair temperature 50 degrees, water temps 68 or lower thats when Burgeoning spotted sea trout to be under new rules SEE SEA TROUT | PAGE 4 Photo | David S.

Like snook and some other cold-sensitive fish, theyll continue inland until they find comfortable temperatures, often gathering at a lock and dam because thats as far as they can go. From land, its also the best kind of place to see them close up, this side of Sarasota. In Sarasota you can watch them eating enormous amounts of romaine lettuce in the aquarium of Mote Marine Laboratory at 1600 Ken Thompson Parkway. What must we do if we see a distressed or injured manatee? This: Phone the Wildlife Alert hotline, 888-404FWCC (3922) or send a text to Tip@MyFWC.com You can also use a cell phone to call #FWC or *FWC, depending on your service providers method. Nearly everyone knows Mr. Someone, whos always squawking about those lowlifes who fill buckets and coolers with any fish they can hook, no matter how small, as if there were no laws. They fish from shore, they fish from bridges, and they fish from boats. They wreck the resource. Col. Jim Brown, director of the FWC's Division of Law Enforcement, announced that FWCs Wildlife Alert people are taking text messages, the best way to report violations in real time. You dont have to wait for someone to answer the phone. You dont have to worry about being overheard. The text address is Tip@myFWC.com, same as for injured manatees. The text-messaging option makes it more convenient for the public, Brown said. We also hope it will name and you wont be made to testify in court. Youll be given a code number, so if theres eventually a reward you can claim it by text, email or phone. The maximum is $1,000. Everglades National Park is seeking volunteers for two moderately rugged trail clearing projects on Saturdays in December. Dec. 10 Help the Swamp Apes, headed by volunteer naturalist Tom Rahill, to clear more of the Bear Lake Canoe Trail, a project in progress for three years. Dec. 17 Participate in clearing the Anhinga and Gumbo Limbo walking trails at Pine Island. Contact Volunteer Coordinator Kevin Bowles Mohr at 305-242-7752 or email Kevin_Bowles_Mohr@nps.gov for more information, and to be notified of future volunteer projects. SEA TROUT | FROM PAGE 3 make Wildlife Alert even more effective in catching poachers and other violators. Mr. Someone doubts that anyone will arrive in time if he does holler cop, but real-time texting can give wildlife officers enough info to follow up even if theyre late. That depends on someone providing useful details, which he can do by texting without fear of the lowlifes overhearing him as he describes them. For all they know, hes checking football scores on his phone, or trying to borrow money. FWC spokesman Bob Wattendorf said the first text message should report the specific violation and the location as accurately as possible, then describe the violators and their vehicles. Wildlife Alert dispatchers, who are on duty all the time, will text back for other details. The rest of the plan works just like your local Crime Stoppers hotline.

Specializing in the Diving Industry ARNOLD MARKOWITZ Waterfront Times Columnist Its bad enough that Biscayne National Parks longterm plans include a 10,522-acre no-fishing zone over reefs on the ocean side of Elliott Key, or maybe one twice that size. Its worse that those plans, introduced at public hearings in mid-September, were made without consulting the state of Florida. The Biscayne and National Park Service people who carefully wrote and colorfully mapped four alternative General Management Plans, three of them with offshore marine reserves, intended to solve problems caused by overfishing. Too bad they didnt tell FWC what they were up to. Excluding the state from the management plans preparation was no mere protocol error, easily overcome by an expedient apology. The state and the park have a long-standing deal, due for renewal next September, for the states active involvement in Biscaynes fishing rules. Roughly half of the parks territory was given by the state in 1970. The agreement, called a Memo of Understanding or MOU, says the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the park will consult with each other. The state will play a crucial role in new regulations and other fishery management actions in the national park. It also acknowledges the states opposition to nofishing zones, and it specifies that no marine reserves will be established unless FWC and the park agree thats absolutely necessary, a last resort. The state doesnt agree its necessary. Maybe it would, but Biscayne hasnt asked it to, or provided data to prove it, FWC executive director Nick Wiley complained in a letter objecting to the management plan. He cites nine other potential violations of the MOUpark management proposals that would directly or indirectly restrict fishing, all written without consulting the state. Mark Lewis, superintendent of Biscayne, points to that same MOU where it says FWC recognizes that the park intends to consider marine reserves for purposes breeders, they fill the marine reserve with large numbers of fish that then swim out of the reserve and lead to greater catches adjacent to the zones, a process known as spillover...large fish often swim right up to snorkelers and divers, providing an experience unmatched throughout the rest of our coastal waters. Thats what you ought to see in a tropical marine park, he wrote: This plan, and this proposed MRZ are the only ways we know to fulfill that mission. That doesnt justify cutting the state out of the planning, does it? One rationale for it is that the no-fishing zones are proposed for the parks original 1968 territory when it was begun as a national monument. Quoting the Congressional act that created it, the plan asserts that Biscayne can impose fishing restrictions there after consultation with appropriate officials of said state. Uh-oh. Appropriate officials of said state say there hasnt been any consultation, and they object. More of the parks excuse for ducking state participation is that the proposed no-fishing zone is a conservation and visitor experience issue, not a fishing issue. It says state involvement in fishing issues applies only to a separate fishery plan, not the general management plan. Hmmm, so a no-fishing zone is not a fishing issue? What nonsense! Thats the sort of trick lawyers come up with, an argument using semantic hair-splitting to duck requirements and justify doing the wrong thing. It doesnt fool the FWC. Nick Wileys 9-page complaint affirms the state agency wont take it lying down: The proposed regulatory actions, combined with the lack of agency coordination, make it abundantly clear that the parks regulatory strategy is to address fisheries management issues within the context of the General Management Plan and outside of the framework of the Memo of Understanding and the Fisheries Management Plan, his complaint says. There is no doubt the draft General Management Plan (GMP) proposes significant restrictions on fishing opportunities that should be addressed through the provisions of the MOU and the FMP. He wants the National Park Service to withdraw fishing and related provisions from the plan and work closely with FWC on proposals that reflect a better balance between resource protection and the public interest. Lisa Gregg, a marine fisheries staff member who compiled the objections and drafted the letter, said FWC is ready to fight back through another federal process, the Coastal Zone Management Act (CZMA). That requires federal actions to be consistent with a states federally approved coastal management program. Florida has one of those. The Wiley letter argues that federal actions proposed in the Biscayne plan are inconsistent with it. Lewis said the Park Service believes its plan is consistent with the still-active Memo of Understanding. other than sound fisheries management. What purposes? Such as appropriate visitor experience in a national park, Lewis says, citing the belief that a no-fishing zone would allow fish and corals to grow to impressive sizes. That in turn would enhance enjoyment of Biscayne for snorkelers and divers. Nice, but the memo of understanding doesnt say making a no-fishing zone for that reason would be none of the states business. If it did, the state wouldnt have agreed. We certainly cannot support a marine reserve that closes large areas for fishing within BNP until less restrictive fisheries management measures have been considered and tried, the FWC letter says. FWC knows very well that fishing quality in the park has declined over the years, with fewer and smaller fish reported by each annual survey. Corals have been damaged and destroyed by careless anchoring. That might require drastic solutions but, as weve often argued here, solutions less drastic than no-fishing zones should be tested first. Its just good sense, even without that MOU requiring it. The rationale for marine reserves is that they work.

6 WATERFRONTTIMES.COM December2011 Waterfront Times BY MARK ERCOLIN Waterfront Times Columnist Good grief! Is it the holiday season again? It seems like August was just yesterday when all the stores started putting up those festive decorations. As so aptly pointed out by Peanuts Charlie Brown, commercialism can ruin the holidays. But a good time can be had if we keep our perspective and thoughts to the people and things that really matter to us. This remains good advice even for boaters. Sure, we can just as easily be whisked away by the glitz, lighting, parades and parties that the holiday season has to offer. But when you own a boat, you are strapped with an extra layer of responsibility. Possibly, holiday boat trips with friends and family are among the most memorable times you can have during the year. These excursions should be done safely and legally, so they do not become memorable for the wrong reasons. Seaworthiness is both a legal term and a term of art. Generally, a seaworthy vessel is defined as being reasonably fit for its intended purpose. This may sound rather broad (and depending on the circumstances, it can be), but for most recreational purposes it means that a boat should be kept in good working order, have sufficient and well maintained safety equipment and be manned by a competent and properly trained crew. While this is obvious to most good boaters, the holiday season can create specific scenarios requiring extra precautions. With that in mind, here are a few extra points to consider regarding seaworthiness during the holidays: Lighting: Sure, we all know that you should use your boats navigation lights from dusk to dawn while underway. But during the holidays, many of us adorn our boats with seasonal decorations and festive lighting maybe even installing an animatronic Snoopy, Rudolph, or Grinch. These lights and toys look great while were docked or in a properly supervised parade, but can be a potential safety concern if youre otherwise running your boat in the darkness. Think about it your navigation lights are installed at specific locations and shine in certain colors and arcs for a reason. If youre traveling on the water with holiday lights blinking, oncoming traffic can claim they couldnt tell if you were coming, going, or at anchor. Should an accident occur, you could be looking at liability problems because someone says they couldnt tell the difference between your port light and Rudolphs nose. So while underway, in most circumstances holiday lighting should be kept to a minimum. Allowing a young person to use your boat: Thats right, during the holidays visiting friends and family members just might want to borrow your boat or personal watercraft. While anyone using your boat can create liability issues, a recent Florida statute makes young boat operators of particular concern. Anyone operating a vessel in Florida waters born Jan. 1, 1988 or after is required to have a boating safety education ID card unless theyre under the supervision of someone with a card or is exempt to age. This statute also includes the use of personal watercraft, so generally no exemption would apply in that case anyway. Now, you could look at this statute as a ready-made excuse for not giving the boat keys to a young relative. But if BOB E. SHERMAN Waterfront Times Columnist The Fort Lauderdale Boat Show ended on Halloween. If you didnt go, Im sure you witch you had. My wife thought it would be too depressing, so she stayed home. The good news is I was able to sell my extra tickets, which covered parking for two days and one beer. On Thursday I parked at War Memorial Auditorium and took the bus to the Broward Convention Center since it was the first one that came along. There was a long line at the entrance. A busload of boaters drove down from North Carolina without picture ID. Even with ID I was held up, as the attendant had to verify my complimentary guest ticket. I moved through the Convention Center quickly. Since I cant afford a new boat of any size, theres no sense looking at the small ones. A short bus ride took me to Bahia Mar to see the big yachts I cant afford. I even ran into Dan Marino. I saw him last at the Miami-Denver preseason game on Aug. 25, 1990. He didnt remember me. Judging from the crowds and all the new models, you wouldnt think the economy was in bad shape. There were 165 boat manufacturers displaying models from 9 to 245 feet. I dropped business cards in every fish bowl I came across. Thanks to LXR Luxury Marinas, I spent three days in bed after I threw my back out while running around my house taking pictures of Molly the Manatee for a photo contest. Now under heavy medication, I wait by the phone for the call to pick up the iPad that I expect to win. Aside from free tickets, the other reason I went to the show was to attend two receptions I was invited to. Thursdays event took place aboard the M/V DREAmer, sponsored by Boating Writers International. DREAmer is a 136-foot Hargrave yacht built in Turkey. The hors doeuvres were excellent, better than the pizza rolls and cocktail wieners Im used to. As a dreamer, par excellence, I began rethinking my plan to share the Powerball with 21 relatives. Im sure they would be just as happy visiting me on my yacht as receiving $250,000 a year. While waiting for the party to begin on DREAmer I boarded the Empress a 58-foot 1947 Consolidated motor yacht, a bargain at $495,000 considering the $1 million refit in 2000. I immediately lapsed into one of my daydreams where I was docked at Mystic Seaport sitting in the cockpit sipping a cold Yuengling. The broker woke me up and asked if I had any questions. It seems he had some real customers who wanted to look around. Its amazing the number of young ladies walking on floating docks in high heels or pushing baby strollers. I was also surprised at the amount of people who brought dogs. I know dogs love jazz and art festivals but didnt know they liked boat shows. Show Managements website clearly states pets should be left at home unless they are licensed working dogs. None of the dogs I saw were wearing a service dog ID vest. Fido could have also been a search and rescue dog trained to find its owner who has caught her high heels on the floating dock and fallen overboard. I returned home Friday night to wait for the calls for my free gifts and the Powerball drawing Saturday. I still had two days to run back to the show and buy a new yacht but it didnt happen. Maybe at the next boat show. Bob E. Sherman can be e-mailed through www.bobesherman.com.

ADMIRALTY LAW | FROM PAGE 6 Being seaworthyduring the holidays marine program in 2008 with just 20 students. The program now has over 50 attending three sessions. The program is also accredited by the American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC). Graduates earn not only a diploma but also ABYC-certification, which allows them to go to work immediately in the industry. ABYC president Skip Burdon said the marine industry is hurting for qualified marine technicians and engineers, especially in South Florida. While new marine production definitely dropped in 2007 with the crash of the economy, the yards in South Florida are still seeing a shortage of certified technicians, he said. Thats because in Broward County, and in Miami, there are quite a few outstanding boatyards that do refitting of older vessels. Burdon said that in the present economy many boat owners are refitting older boats and yachts because its cheaper than buying new. He said many brands are good candidates for restoration. Bertrams especially are wellconstructed, quality boats that are built to last many years. Its not unusual to see 40 and 50-year-old Bertams on the water, still looking good. But that also takes proficient technicians to work on them and keep them up to standard. The donation came about after Cathy Petowsky, LMC compliance and safety officer, learned that the Lunds were planning to dispose of the boat, which had aged and been vandalized. She suggested they instead donate it to the college program. Mark Pratt, LMC general manager, offered to provide dry dock, workspace and services to Broward Colleges program at their yard. Burdon said Broward College currently produces the most graduates of the Marine League. They are definitely taking the lead, he said. And thats good for the industry, especially in South Florida, where its most needed. And what we get for the industry are safe and reliable boats.

NOAH ROSENBERG The New York Times Syndicate Quebec is a city of delightfully stark, yet virtually seamless contrasts; centuries-old fortification walls lead to chic open-kitchen restaurants, and cobblestone streets give way to bike paths and innovative art institutions. The enchanting Francophone capital of Quebec province, and one of the oldest cities in North America, Quebec City received a major facelift before its 400th anniversary in 2008. Perhaps more significant than the new boutique hotels, revitalized parks and gleaming cultural centers was the overdue attention the city finally received, which continues to propel it forward. Quebec City, a historic, cultural and culinary center beside the St. Lawrence River, has emerged from the long shadow cast by its everpopular neighbor, Montreal. Classics done right When it comes to cuisine, Quebec City might as well be Paris West, with its no-holds-barred amalgam of traditional French, native Quebecois and innovative farm-totable offerings. Best to start with the basics. On a narrow winding street in Old Quebec, Cafe Chez Temporel (25, rue Couillard; 418-694-1813) is a deliciously classic French cafe, with windows made for people-watching. The 36-year-old spot plays a gentle mix of folk and French music a lovely soundtrack for eating the perfect croissant (about $2 U.S. dollars) or a slice of quiche Lorraine with a salad ($8.75) and a cafe au lait ($2.75) among the locals. Scale the walls Feel history with your feet as you wander Old Quebec, a Unesco World Heritage Site with car-free streets, towering monuments and 17th-century homes. You can detour through the opulent lobby and cliffside boardwalk of the hotel Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac, but for a truly peerless perspective on the citys history and geography, you must do a little scrambling. Head up the staircase at the corner of Rue St.Louis and Cte de la Citadelle and climb onto the wide, grassy fortification wall that rings the old city. Walk north on the wall (one of the most intact defensive city walls in North America) among the cannons and the sunbathing, dog-walking, hand-holding residents. Hop off at Rue St.-Jean. lemoineechanson.com), even as plates of creme brulee, au foie gras and Catalan-style duck confit made their way out of the kitchen in this small five-year-old restaurant. The seasonal small-plates menu changes four times a year, depending on the selection of organic and natural wines in stock. Dinner for two, including wine, is about $120. For a down-homey alternative, head to La Cuisine (205, rue St.-Vallier Est; 418-523-3387; barlacuisine.com), a restaurant and bar outfitted like a retro university students apartment. The vintage furniture is for sale and the kitchen is open, with a decades-old stove and a pair of microwaves churning out Quebecois comfort food like croque monsieur and casseroles. Dinner for two, with local beer, is about $30, live D.J., hip crowd, Nintendo and other diversions included. Quebecois cabaret For an artistically inspired night out, theres Le Cercle (228, rue St.-Joseph Est; 418-948-8648; lecercle.ca), a sleek industrial-modern space born of a 2009 merger between a wine bar and an adjacent performance venue. It offers live indie, rock, dance and folk music, and films, comedy shows and theater. (Admission ranges from free to $25.) The spot also features local art and Chocolate, books and beer With its colorful brick buildings and fashionable boutiques, bars and restaurants, the hilly Rue St.-Jean, beyond the old city, sheds its tourist tone and becomes the chic St.-Jean-Baptiste neighborhood. Stop at Choco-Musee Erico (634, rue St.-Jean; 418-524-2122; chocomusee.com) for a cocoa history primer and savor a buttery-smooth chocolate filled with pecans and salted caramel. Then peruse the classics and future classics among the secondhand books at the Librairie St.-Jean-Baptiste (565, rue St.-Jean; 581-999-095; librairiesjb.com), a bookstore-cum-coffee-shop and beer bar. Finally, quench your thirst on the art-filled terrace at Bar Le Sacrilege (447, rue St.-Jean; 418-649-1985; lesacrilege.net), with 13 local beers and one cider on tap. Wine-driven dining Its all about the wine, said a waiter-sommelier at Le Moine Echanson (585, rue St.-Jean; 418-524-7832; Overlooking the St. Lawrence River, with a view of the Fairmont Le Chteau Frontenac.

Indie revival Start your day in the St.-Roch neighborhood, where urban decay has yielded to a gentrifying blend of government investment and pioneering artists and entrepreneurs. Grab a bite at Bistrot Le Clocher Penche (203 rue St.-Joseph Est, 418-640-0597, clocherpenche.ca), a bistro whose name is a homage to the leaning steeple across the street. The blood sausage, soft-boiled egg and poached pear over a puff pastry ($17; coffee and yogurt parfait included) is excellent. Then wander into the nearby Boutique Lucia F (422, rue Caron; 418-648-9785), a vintage clothing shop, with nary an item over $100. Just down the Rue St.-Joseph is Morgan Bridge (367, rue du Pont; 418-529-1682, morganbridge.ca), a gallery of Quebec City and Montreal street and comic art that sells locally made T-shirts, music and books. For a highbrow alternative, visit La Chambre Blanche (185, rue Christophe-Colomb Est; 418-529-2715; chambreblanche.qc.ca), an art collective that features the work of its current international resident artists and displays the portfolios of those it has hosted since 1982. Hyperlocal beer La Barberie (310, rue St.-Roch; 418-522-4373; labarberie.com), in the St.-Roch neighborhood, is one of the best and most beloved among a growing number of microbreweries in the city, with a recently expanded outdoor patio. The cooperative brews 30 to 50 beers a year, ranging from a tasty India Pale Ale to sangria, chardonnay and tea-flavored varieties. For the full experience, order a $16 carousel with five ounces of each of the eight different beers on tap. A hot ticket Bistro B (1144 Avenue Cartier; 418-614-5444; bistrob.ca), the elegantly modern yet cheerfully communal new restaurant from Franois Blais the rockstar chef who opened Panache, one of the citys most renowned dining spots has superb food, design and service. The menu changes daily, but you cant go wrong ordering the tartare du jour and the duck breast, which on a recent night was served in a white wine sauce with a butternut squash puree and purple broccoli. For dessert, try the cheesecake, heavy in chocolate, with an accent of raspberry sorbet. Dinner for two, with wine, is roughly $130. Reservations recommended. See the scene On the nearby Grande Allee, a stretch of nightclubs exerts a fierce gravitational pull for exotic cars, by Chez Ashton (640 Grande-Allee Est; 418-522-3449; chez-ashton.com) for late-night poutine (French fries drowned in gravy and cheese curds) like any good Quebecois clubgoer should. To market, to market Antiques, art and trinkets. Thats the Rue St.-Paul, in the Old Port neighborhood. But those worlds collide quite cleverly in Machin Chouette (225, rue St.-Paul; 418525-9898; machinchouette.com), French for Cute Machine. The design shop sells handmade pieces, like a lamp made from an antique tricycle ($620). For culinary creativity, cross the street to Le Marche du Vieux-Port (160, Quai St.-Andre; 418-692-2517; marchevieuxport.com), a sprawling market where chefs and tourists browse stands of local seafood, meats, cheeses, produce and pastries. Along the coast Quebec is perhaps best experienced on two wheels. For $18 for two hours, rent a hybrid bike in the Old Port at Velo Passe-Sport Plein Air (80, rue Quai St.-Andre; 418296-3643; velopasse-sport.com). Cruise the paths along the river to the Baie de Beauport, a recreational park with kayaks, pedal boats and sailboat rentals. From there, continue on to the Parc Lineaire, a network of cycling and walking paths that follow the St. Charles tributary of the St. Lawrence River, past gardens and kite-flying children a perfect end to the day. celebrity clientele and acrobatic dancers dangling from ceilings. Try Savini Resto-Bar Vinoteque (680, Grande-Allee Est; 418-647-4747; savini.ca, no cover) or Maurice Nightclub (575, Grande-Allee Est; 418647-2000; mauricenightclub.com, free to $5).

F&J Fuel Company 954-987-4212 In Miami-Dade & Broward County Francophile Quebec City offers food that rivals Paris State view may differ from park staff Citing the CZMA is a reluctant choice for the FWC. We just dont prefer to use it because it is usually our tool of last resort, Gregg said.There could have been ample coordination on these issues ahead of time that would have prevented us from having to go this route. The CZMA also can work as a backstop for the state in case the Park Service decides let the Memo of Understanding expire, unrenewed, next September, shutting the state out altogether. The Park Service might also use that prospect as leverage to obtain a new agreement giving itself more control of fishing. By resorting further to the CZMA, the state would delay the management plans implementation, now timetabled tentatively for next fall. Its been in the works since 2003, while the park continues operating under an outdated general management plan enacted in 1983. Then we would have two governments staring each other down, waiting to see who blinks. None of that would be good. Why did the National Park Service, or Biscaynes own staff we dont know whose idea it was or who approved it choose to bypass the state? Impatience is our only guess right now. Its easy to imagine someone deciding that something drastic had to be done about overfishing pretty quickly and that consulting the state would take too long. Lisa Gregg said a conference call, the first attempt to negotiate the dispute, was scheduled for Nov. 30. Wileys letter was dated Oct. 10 addressed to Sally Mann, the states director of environmental protection, not to Lewis and the Park Service, but they know all about it by now. We can infer that Lewis and National Park Service people up the chain of command know Biscaynes cooperative relationship with Florida is bobbing between shallow reefs at low tide.

11 December2011 WATERFRONTTIMES.COM Waterfront Times When it comes to celebrations, theres no season quite like the holiday season. Wilton share party tips and recipes to help create a cocktail buffet with all the trimmings. It looks like it would take lots of time and effort, but it really doesnt, says Nancy Siler, vice president of consumer affairs at Wilton. Weve worked out all the details to make it easy, elegant and delicious. Siler suggests setting up a beverage station so guests can serve themselves, or recruit a friend to help prepare and serve your signature cocktails sugar-rimmed Cheery Cranberry Mojitos and colorful All Aglow Melontinis that twinkle with sparkle gel. And for a warm beverage choice, offer rich, thick hot chocolate garnished with frosty snowmen, peppermint curls or chocolate candy-coated marshmallows.
