Running right through downtown Fort Lauderdale, the train would use the FEC rail bridge over the New River, with the drawbridge being used more than it has in decades. "I wish we could stop it," said Barry Flanigan, chairman of the Fort Lauderdale Marine Advisory Board. "And when that bridge is down, nothing can pass under it, not even a dinghy." All Aboard Florida, a subsidiary of Florida East Coast Industries (FECI), is spending about $1 billion to develop a privately owned, operated and maintained service that will use the set of tracks originally charted by Henry Flagler that links 28 cities along the East Coast from Miami to Jupiter. The service is projected to be up and running by 2015, said spokeswoman Ali Soule. Stations would be located in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Orlando, with hourly service running from early morning into the evening. Flanigan says the project will have a major impact on several boatyards and marinas along the south fork of the New River, and restrict access to people who bring boats of all sizes in for repairs. "This has potential to harm or even kill our marine industry," he said. "That passage is critical to their operations." Currently, the FEC bridge, located in downtown Fort Lauderdale just west of Andrews Avenue, stands open most of the time so boats, including mega-yachts and the Jungle Queen, can pass underneath. It's hard to get an exact estimate of the number of vessels that travel west of the FEC rail bridge, but larger boats that require openings of the nearby Andrews Avenue bridge, can be tracked by looking at the bridge tender logs. Each opening is recorded into the log, with the total number of vessels that SEE BRIDGE | PAGE 4 Critics say new train service could derail marine industry The FEC rail bridge across the New River in downtown Fort Lauderdale is left in the open position unless a freight train travel s through. Under a plan to run a passenger train service, the bridge would only open ondemand for boat traffic. Snook keeper season over until February ARNOLD MARKOWITZ Waterfront Times Snook keeper season closes Dec. 1 until the end of February on the Gulf Coast, Florida Keys and Everglades National Park. On the Atlantic Coast and Lake Okeechobee, you can keep one until Dec. 15. It has to be at least 28 inches long (total length) and no longer than 32 inches. The Atlantic season will reopen on Feb. 1. Snook can be caught during closed season, but must be released. That makes it advisable (but not required) to use circle hooks with natural baits, flatten barbs on jigs and plugs and try cutting treble hook rigs back to singles. All that's to reduce injuries to fish that have to be let go anyway. Be gentle. No lip-ripping, please. No yanking out the hooks and tossing the fish. For a lot more info on how to do it right, look here: myfwc.com/research/saltwater/fish/snook/reduce-catch-release-mortality. Manatee season It's time again for powerboaters to watch out for manatees and not hit any. With cooler weather, the sea cows are migrating south to warmer waters. We're likely to see them more and still more in South Florida's waterw ays, even far inland as far as they have to go to feel comfortable. It's easier to avoid hitting manatees if you ease back on the throttle and look for them because they probably aren't looking for you. "Manatees often feed in shallow seagrass beds adjacent to deeper waters," said Carol Knox, the FWC's Imperiled Species Management section leader. "Wearing polarized sunglasses helps you spot a manatee under water. Also watch for circular wave patterns on the water's surface called manatee footprints indicating a manatee's presence below." The manatee protection zones we've been able to ignore until now were reactivated beginning Nov. 15. The signs you'll see say "slow speed," meaning the boat should be completely settled in the water, not even slightly on plane. Refresh your knowledge and get updated on new speed zone postings by going online to and click on Data and Maps to see manatee protection zones. They are listed county by county. If you see a sick, injured, orphaned, entangled or dead manatee, call the Wildlife Alert hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922). You also can text to or call #FWC and *FWC with your cell phone.

Fiberglass, Gelcoat & Painting Mechanical Repairs Survey Haulouts Bottom Painting 5 minutes to Inlet yachtpaint.com ARNOLD MARKOWITZ Waterfront Times Columnist At last the National Park Service has put away, though not quite discarded, a bad idea to create a big no-fishing zone over the offshore reefs of Biscayne National Park. Instead, we'll have a special recreation zone with its own fishing regulations: lower bag limits and tighter size limits than outside, no-anchor protection for the reefs below, a probably controversial system of access by permit only and more. Shelving the no-fishing stinker for at least the next 10 years, while making more reasonable attempts to re-stock the park's declining sport fishery, honors an agreement with the state of Florida that the Park Service has wasted four-plus years futilely trying to ignore. Now Biscayne can move ahead with a required 30year general management plan and a separate, shorterterm fishery management plan that may cover considerably more territory than the special recreation zone's 14,585 surface acres. The general management plan is essentially the same collection of alternatives published but withdrawn in 2011, now with the addition of two new alternatives numbered 6 and 7. The one Biscayne's pushing is Alternative 6. In addition to changes mentioned above, grouper and lobster catching will be banned in the park, including the traditional two-day state lobster mini-season every July. No-engine zones will be imposed on the three propeller-ravaged Featherbed Banks and around Totten Key near the park's southern end. There's a slow-speed zone 1,000 feet along almost the entire mainland shoreline and a shorter, wider one on the bay shoreline of Elliott Key. Both plans feature important cooperation and technical assistance by the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation (FWC) Commission. Its staff is ready to start work on park-specific fishing rules. The agencies are compromising with flexible rule making, periodic monitoring and science-based reviews. Those are meant to determine, after 10 years of close attention, whether a more drastic resort to nofishing zones is necessary or not. Not everyone is going to like what they've come up with. If that means you, there's a chance to speak up for other ideas at three December public hearings on the general management plan. That plan's latest version, emphasizing Alternative 6, was made public in mid-November. As this is written, the fishery plan is still a work in progress. A summary has been posted online (see Up close) but the details and graphics may not be there until mid-2014. The FWC on Nov. 21 agreed to authorize staff to begin writing the rules. Both plans have been delayed by years of needless controversy. From the moment of the first what-if mention of no-fishing zones also called marine reserves, which doesn't sound as awful fishing-doers disagreed. Not much at first, but as government indicated it was serious about no-fishing zones, disagreements became complaints, then objections, then protests, then loud hollering. From the start, suspicions were voiced by a few among us of a secret government agenda, encouraged by anti-fishing wimps and sellout science, to outlaw fishing in all of Biscayne and eventually everywhere. Don't be silly, others among us said, the Park Service is listening to us. It'll be okay. We said that here, remember? True, no-fishing zones (also called marine reserves) were taken off the table for a while, but they popped up again. We shouted them down again, and again back they came. Was the NPS paying attention? The secret agenda alarmists said see? They pretend to listen, but then they do what they want anyway. They're going to ban all fishing! Little by little, that argument grew louder and seemed less preposterous. If Gallup did a fishing poll, we'd bet a lot more than a few people would say they believe it. While most of us were hollering, some FWC people showed NPS people a document called a Memo of Understanding, and admonished them more or less as follows: "It says here that when Florida gave the government a huge chunk of Biscayne Bay for that nice national park, you were forbidden to do marine reserve zones unless everything else you could do about fish decline was tried and failed. You agreed, and guess what; we're going to hold you to it." That brought us to where we are now. The fishery plan is supposed to govern fishing policy for five to 10 years, with a goal of increasing the abundance and average size of certain species by at least 20 percent. Species have not been chosen, but are likely to begin Special recreation zone touted for fisheries project FISHING ZIMAR ¨ GALVANIC ANODES MADE FROM PURE ZINC GOOD PRICE LAST LONGER SHAFT ZINCS FROM 3/4" TO 6" METRIC SHAFT ZINCS FROM 25 TO 160 m/m ZINCS FOR EUROPEAN YACHTS ZINCS FOR TAIWAN BOATS 2090 S.W. 71 TERR.

4 WATERFRONTTIMES.COM Decembe r2013 Waterfront Times more than $500 million, was quickly dismissed. Instead, the company decided to just use the existing bridge, which was constructed in the 1970s to replace the original 1912 bridge. Soule declined to answer why that option was chosen. That things an antique, Flanigan said. I think its unlikely to stand up to the kind of usage this service will require. He hopes to at least see an end to the automated closures. We absolutely need a human bridge tender there if theyre going to be doing that many closings, he said. We really need one now, even without the passenger rail. In October, a 55-year-old Dania Beach woman attempted to cross the bridge on foot after the passage of a train minutes earlier, but became trapped about 22 feet off the ground when the bridge went back into its normal upright position. She was rescued by Fort Lauderdale Fire-Rescue. Though signs prohibit people from walking on the bridge, many have suggested that a human tender would have prevented the near tragedy. And its not just commercial interests objecting to the service. Tom Healy owns a 48-foot trawler and a waterfront home on the New River, just west of the railway bridge. Even without train traffic, the bridge already poses dilemmas. That stretch of the river is very narrow, especially upriver, he said. Right now, it only closes occasionally, which weve learned to deal with. But if theyre closing it all the time for passenger trains, I dont know if well ever take the boat out again. Bob Brinkman, who also lives on the New River, fears potential noise that area residents will endure from so many trains. Its going to be significant, Im sure, Brinkman said. But the thing is, I doubt if we need this new service, anyway. Whats wrong with the current Amtrak service? Flanigan said the Marine Advisory Board is still working with All Aboard Florida about logistics. Theres not much optimism that we can prevent this thing. So, our best hope is to see some kind of negotiated schedule. Patience Cohn of the Marine Industries Association of South Florida, e-mailed a statement on behalf of the organization. For the past year MIASF leadership has been in discussions with All Aboard Florida and FEC to assure the increased passenger rail traffic and the need for a navigable waters can coexist. Soule declined to answer questions from The Waterfront Times about the specifics of plans and operations, referring instead to the All Aboard Florida website at www.allaboardflorida.com. We realize this is an issue, which, like our statement says, we have been working with the community. pass through noted, said Susan Smith, an administrator with the Broward County Highway and Bridge Maintenance Division. All told, the Andrews Avenue bridge does about 10,000 openings per year. Peak months are March, April and May. The highest month was March, with 962 openings. The lowest month was September, with 623. And thats just counting the larger boats that need more than the 18 feet of vertical clearance provided by the Andrews bridge when its closed. Smaller powerboats such as center consoles, runabouts and skiffs all of which would still require the FEC rail bridge to open are not counted. Working by remote control, the FEC bridge is lowered for about a dozen freight trains each day. But the new passenger service would double, even triple, the number of times it would have to go down. Soule insisted that the company understands the concern. All Aboard Florida recognizes the importance of the marine industry in Broward County, and has been working closely with many of the communitys stakeholders since the project started last year, Soule said. We will continue to engage and coordinate with one of Broward Countys largest employment sectors and economic generators as the intercity passenger rail project progresses to construction and operation. Thats not enough, Flanigan said. When we met with the All Aboard Florida people at the Broward Alliance, they had no idea the number of large vessels that travel through there every single day, and they were surprised to find that many of them are being towed through there. They had no concept that the tides also limit navigation through there. Its going to be a huge problem. When it was proposed that they might consider moving to tracks west of the city, they suggested that maybe our marine industry should consider moving. Flanigan said a worst-case scenario could be that the larger boatyards might decide to leave Fort Lauderdale altogether and head to areas such as Palm Beach. When the idea of resuming passenger service on the FEC railway was first talked about a couple of years ago, proposals called for a new structure to be built. Three options have been considered: a 65-foot fixed bridge, a 45-foot drawbridge and a tunnel under the New River. The tunnel option, which would have cost BRIDGE FROM PAGE 1 N ATIONAL M ARINE I NSTITUTE NATIONAL MARINE INSTITUTE INC., a tax exempt,nonprofit corporation, State of Florida and federally authorized as a 501 (C) (3) charitable organization.

It should also be noted that the FCC no longer requires proficiency in Morse code for many of its amateur radio ratings. Morse code keys are becoming rare and, like the ship's bell clock, are becoming interesting artifacts that might increase in value. LORAN-C receivers: another once ubiquitous part of navigation that has disappeared. Because of the almost universal adoption of GPS, both the U.S. and Canadian Coast Guards ceased transmitting LORAN-C signals in 2010, essentially making all LORAN-C receivers in North America an item worthy of the electronic recycling bin. On the other hand, if you look at them as potential future artifacts worthy of an office shelf or a wall decoration, in a few years who knows they could be valuable. NOAA paper charts: As of April 13 2014, the federal government will no long print traditional lithographic (paper) nautical charts, ending a traditional product that has existed since 1862. Instead, NOAA will provide electronic "Print On Demand" charts and PDFs that can be downloaded and printed, or otherwise provided for by third party print services. Essentially, this means any traditional lithographic chart now provided by NOAA services can be considered a possible future antique. Given the abuse most charts received in the past (not to mention the countless charts that been used for everything from table blotters to artist's backgrounds), I would imagine that any of these lithographic charts found in pristine condition might prove a potential future treasure. So those are a few of my suggestions for future seaworthy antiques. They could prove to be good holiday pr esents, or at least stocking stuffers. You, of course, are welcome to think of others just make sure it comes from the heart! Or, as a lady friend of mine puts it, "Whatever you give me, I know will be great," followed by, "just make sure you keep the receipt!" Happy holidays! Mark Ercolin is a maritime attorney based in Fort Lauderdale. BY MARK ERCOLIN Waterfront Times Columnist Have you finished your holiday shopping yet? The stores have been selling cards and decorations since September, so it's not like you haven't been on notice. Of course, getting something for your favorite mariner has its own problems mostly because serious sailors tend to buy the latest and greatest gadgets for their boats long before their friends and family find out that new equipment even exists. This isn't necessarily a bad thing. A mariner with the most updated equipment will tend to operate a very seaworthy vessel providing the equipment is working properly and the mariner knows how to use it. Generally, maritime case law shows that if you have a great piece of equipment on board (such as a radar) and it either isn't working properly or is used by someone improperly trained, your vessel can still be considered unseaworthy if an accident occurs. This applies even if the equipment in question isn't legally required for your boat. So if all other ideas fail, a good maritime training course might be a great present for your favorite mariner! But assuming your mariner friends already have a lot of really cool equipment that they know how to use, what do you do then? Well, my present suggestion is actually inspired from watching the "Antique Road Show." For those unfamiliar with the PBS television series, ordinary people bring their collected stuff to professional appraisers to find out if it's valuable or just old junk. The marine marketplace is filled with items that once helped make vessels seaworthy but are no longer generally used or soon won't be. That means they may become more valuable in the future, or at least make for some interesting paperweights or conversation pieces. With that in mind, here's my idea for potential gifting to mariners. This list is in no particular order and comes without any guarantees that any of these gifts can ever prove truly valuable. After all, sometimes junk is just junk: Ship's bell clock: Actually, this one is always a classy gift. I add it solely because the item has become an anachronism. Traditionally, and in certain maritime legal situations, seamen stood four-hour deck watches throughout the day. The time was originally tolled by striking a bell at half hour increments, adding one extra strike per half hour until the fourth hour was reached. When eight bells were struck, seamen knew it was time for the change of watch. By the mid 19th century, clock makers began building well made maritime clocks that tolled out the eight-bell watch. Modern electronics have pretty much done away with the need for these wonderful timepieces, but they do remain treasured heirlooms by those who have them or receive them. It should also be noted that they do seem to have increased in value rather significantly in the last few years, so it should be a very appreciated gift. Morse code keys: Once a ubiquitous part of most commercial and military vessel radio rooms, Morse code keys are quickly disappearing from common use and even common memory. Once among the most important forms of international communications, the United States Coast Guard has long ceased all use of Morse code on the radio, and no longer monitors any radio frequencies for Morse code transmissions, includADMIRALTY LAW AIR COMPRESSOR SYSTEMS for DIVERS Compressed Air Supplies and Equipment, Inc.

Even if it's accurate, that loads urgency onto the need to balance the needs and desires of all those people with the park service's legal obligations to protect the natural and cultural resources. Let's all look closely at Alternative 6. Let's see if we can live with it, or something pretty close to it, and speak up at the public hearings. Feedback: witzfish@att.net. Up close Biscayne National Park's new fishery and general management plans are online at www.nps.gov/bisc. If the Fishery Management Plan and General management Plan are not featured on the home page, go to the left-side menu and click on the Management link. Again in the left-side menu, click on the Park Planning link. There will be links to the General Management Plan (see Alternative 6) and the Fishery Management Plan (see Alternative 4). Here is the schedule of public hearings for the General Management Plan: Monday Dec. 9 at Newman Alumni Center, University of Miami, 6200 San Amaro Drive, Coral Gables. Tuesday Dec. 10 at Florida City Commission chambers, 404 W. Palm Drive, Florida City. Wednesday Dec. 11 at Holiday Inn Key Largo, 99701 Overseas Highway (MM 100). All three meetings run from 6 o 9 p.m. with grouper and snapper. The general management plan, the more complex and costly of the two, will outline park policy for 20 to 30 years. Soon after the public hearings in December, that should be ready for implementation, perhaps with a few tweaks. There's a set timetable for the rest of the process, but then it bumps into external realities. Such as money. The plan might be approved, but it won't be implemented unless the Interior Department, National Park service and ultimately Congress supply the money to pay for it. According to Biscayne's estimates, it will need 19 additional fulltime staff members to do Alternative 6, plus $2,972,000 in new one-time costs for facility improvements and an estimated $4,820,000 to build a new visitor center in Miami. The only visitor center in the park now is in the headquarters at Convoy Point, 9 miles east of Homestead, almost at the southern end. That's too far from the park's northern territory Stiltsville, Soldier Key, Fowey Light, etc. for effective patrol and enforcement. People entering the park there will need to be informed about the new rules. That visitor center should also work as a launch site for organized tours of the park. Both plans should be ready for implementation next year, but let's not hang by the neck while we wait. We can't reckon accurately whether either or both will move smoothly or promptly through both the state and federal approval processes. Keep in mind that the 10-year special recreation zone will begin only when the management plan is implemented and the money to pay for it is in the park's livewell. The same goes for physical improvements and new rangers. Don't count on our government for a real-world timetable more exact than some day between sometime and eventually. I can't recall a Congress or a president willing to make or keep a promise to better support our national parks. They are stiffed and squeezed in budget after budget. Biscayne, with only six law enforcement rangers now, can't adequately enforce the regulations it already has. It will be a surprise no, a shock if it's given the resources to enforce the special recreation zone's rules. Because it's right alongside metropolitan Miami, and can be entered from many points on the mainland, Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic, the park is subject to overcrowding, overfishing and overpollution. It's little wonder that fish stocks have declined so steadily for 30 years. Although our secret agenda alarmist friends doubt the validity or even the honesty of the science that documents it, we don't. Considering the growth of local populations and increasing boat traffic, we would doubt the validity even the competence of science saying the opposite.

To the shore: Cruise up the coast to the Cottage in La Jolla (7702 Fay Ave.; cottagelajolla.com), a wouldbe surf bungalow with an umbrella-canopied patio, which makes use of the Western bounty with dishes like lemon ricotta pancakes ($10.95), polenta with tomato relish, kale pesto, goat cheese sauce and chives ($11.95) and soy chorizo hash with scrambled eggs, black beans and queso fresco ($11.95). Then continue north to the 2,000-acre Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, home to one of the rarest species of pine in the world, sandstone cliffs shaped by the sea and a lagoon that hosts migrating seabirds. Mission Viejo: Founded in 1769 as the first of California's 21 missions, the Mission Basilica San Diego de Alcala has a bloody and politically complicated past. Today, the National Historic Landmark is an exceptionally peaceful place an active parish on a hillside carpeted with ice plants, with a Spanish-style garden at its center and a gift shop that sells Mexican folk art like milagros (religious charms) and Talavera pottery. For lunch, head north to the Island Style Cafe (5950 Santo Road; islandstylecafe.com), a home-style Hawaiian cafe with fabric orchids on the tables and tropical landscape prints on the walls. Try the Koreanstyle fried chicken thighs ($8.75), served with classic sides like macaroni salad, and a customary glass of POG (passion-orange-guava juice, $2.50). Cerveza land: One of the centers of the country's ever-expanding craft beer industry, San Diego has an intimidating number and diversity of breweries (more than 70 total, including 20 or so new ones last year alone). Enthusiasts should seek out the West Coaster (westcoastersd.com), a monthly magazine devoted entirely to the city's beer scene. Each brewery has its own focus and ambience, from the potent beers with FREDA MOON The New York Times Like its urban rival Los Angeles, San Diego is not so much a city as a loose collection of overlapping (and sometimes colliding) communities bound by arterial, life-giving freeways: It's a military town in Coronado; a surf town in funky, eclectic Ocean Beach; and a border town in the historic Mexican-American neighborhood of Barrio Logan. If San Diego has a cohesive identity at all, it's a shared embrace of an easy, breezy Southern California casualness. With its lack of pretension, the city is often seen by outsiders as a kind of Pleasantville a bland, happy place with an exceptional amount of sunshine. Depending on how deep you look, that may be all you see. But there are, after all, worse things than Spanish tiles, palm trees, tropical blooms, year-round flip-flops, fresh fish tacos and bonfires on the beach. First stop: If possible, arrive in San Diego by train. Opened in 1915, the Santa Fe Depot (Union Station) is a Spanish Revival structure surrounded by fountains, palm trees and benches decorated in tile mosaic. Next door, in the station's former baggage building, the downtown location of the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego is hosting "The Very Large Array," an exhibition of works by about 100 local and Tijuana artists (running through June 1, 2014), that offers a compelling introduction to San Diego as a border city. Admission, $10. Afternoon delight: Sitting above the water on a stilted deck on Harbor Island, C Level (880 Harbor Island Drive; cohnrestaurants.com) looks across the San Diego bay to the Naval ships at Coronado, downtown's towering skyline and the tall ships at the Maritime Museum. On weekday afternoons from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., the bar menu has $5 specials on cocktails including the Desi Arnaz (Cruzan mango rum, papaya nectar, mint, fresh lime and soda) and the Sol y Mar (Finlandia grapefruit vodka, aloe juice and fresh lemon) and snacks like rice-paper-wrapped prawns and steamed mussels with chorizo. Afterward, take a giddy ride on the Giant Dipper wooden roller coaster ($6 a person) at Belmont Park, a vintage amusement park on the beach in Mission Bay. Pork shop: Opened in 2011 and beloved by locals, Carnitas' Snack Shack (2632 University Ave.; carnitassnackshack.com) is a glorified taco stand serving porkcentric comfort food including carnitas tacos with guacamole and salsa fresca ($7), braised Duroc pork belly with a fricasŽ, apple and radish salad ($8), a steak sandwich on jalapeno and Cheddar cheese bread ($9) from a takeout window in North Park. The squat structure has outdoor tables and heat lamps around back and a giant sculpture of a metal pig adorning its roof. For dessert, head for Adams Avenue and try the house-made Mexican chocolate or banana walnut ice cream at the mom-and-pop Mariposa Ice Cream or the exotic paletas (Mexican-style popsicles) at Viva Pops, which come in flavors like lavender lemonade, salted caramel and mango-chile. Both shops, at 3450 and 3330 Adams, respectively, close at 9 p.m. on weekends. Then, explore the buzzing Normal Heights neighborhood. Stop in at Lestat's Coffee House, at 3343 Adams, for caffeine to fuel the remainder of the evening. While there, check the events calendar for the attached concert space, which hosts local music acts, comedy shows and open mic nights next door. Old School, New Age: In South Park, rockabillies and old-timers take turns playing shuffleboard at Hamilton's Tavern (1521 30th St.; hamiltonstavern.com), which has a daunting 28 taps, two cask beer engines and some 200 bottled beers and claims to be the city's oldest alehouse. Or, instead, have an only-in-California experience at Kava Lounge (2812 Kettner Boulevard; kavalounge.com), a New Age bar, dance club and arts space that promotes "future planetary night life" in the form of vegan cocktails, San Diego's eclectic, casual identity amid a bay SEE SAN DIEGO | PAGE 9 WAYPOINTS

Walk the two-mile Bayside Trail along a rocky point of sage scrub and maguey plants, near where in 1542 Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo led the first European expedition to the coast of what is now California. For brunch, head downtown to Little Italy's Extraordinary Desserts (1430 Union St.; extraordinarydesserts.com), which has a "European breakfast" ($20.95) spread of imported cheese, fresh fruit, homemade granola, smoked salmon, decadent pastries and rustic breads starting at 11 a.m. Reservations recommended. Park and ride: With 15 museums, one of the country's most well-respected zoos and 1,200 acres of hills, gardens, forests and ravines, Balboa Park (balboapark.org) cannot be fully explored in a weekend, much less an afternoon. But, for an overview, San Diego Fly Rides ($75 a person, including a snack, water and helmet) uses high-end electric bikes, which can travel up to 20 mph, to cover 9 miles of ground on its two-hour Spanish Twist tour (16 and older). For one final San Diego meal, sample the tacos de lengua (tongue), pastor (marinated, spit-barbecued pork) or cabeza (beef head) at Northgate Market, a Mexican grocery the size of a Costco with a food court that turns out fresh, house-made tortillas, along with enough tamales, ceviches, antojitos (snacks) and aguas frescas (fresh fruit "waters") to feed a pueblito. heavy metal names (Anvil, Horny Devil, Evil Dead Red) at AleSmith Brewing Company (9368 Cabot Drive; alesmith.com) to the vaguely steampunk dŽcor at Societe Brewing Company (8262 Clairemont Mesa Boulevard; societebrewing.com) to Lightning Brewery (13200 Kirkham Way, Poway; lightningbrewery.com), in the far suburb of Poway, which is run by a brewer's brewer with a Ph.D. in biochemistry and which feels like stepping into garage science experiment. Sea and sky: In the perennial debate over where to find San Diego's best fish tacos, the line at Blue Water Seafood Market & Grill (3667 India St.; bluewaterseafoodsandiego.com) is one indication. The menu reads like a choose-your-own-aquatic adventure, listing 12 kinds of seafood including Scottish salmon, Hawaiian albacore and Alaskan halibut six kinds of marinade (among them: chipotle, blackened and "bronzed") and four preparations: salad, sandwich, plate or tacos (from $4 per taco to $25 for a plate of jumbo shrimp). Afterward, have a nightcap next door at Aero Club (3365 India; aeroclubbar.com), a charmingly divey whiskey bar with some 600 bottles climbing the wall and toy airplanes hanging from the ceiling. Alternatively, settle into a zero-gravity lounge chair for an 8 p.m. movie ($15) at Cinema Under the Stars, an open-air theater in Mission Hills. Europe in America: Stop in at Bird Rock Coffee Roasters in La Jolla (5627 La Jolla Boulevard;birdrockcoffeeroasters.com) for a small-batch, house-roasted coffee to go from Roast Magazine's 2012 Micro Roaster of the Year. Then take a slow Sunday drive down the coast, past the sandstone Sunset Cliffs to the Cabrillo National Visiting Balboa Park requires more than an afternoon SAN DIEGO FROM PAGE 8 As the surf rolls in, visitors walk along the beach at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve in San Diego. Photo | Sam Hodgson, The New York Times Up close Opened in 2009 as San Diego's first LEED-certified hotel, Hotel Indigo (509 Ninth Ave.; hotelindigo.com) has a 3,800-square-foot green roof, free wireless Internet and a ninth-floor terrace bar overlooking Petco Park stadium. Rooms are pet-friendly and start at $146. With 159 "ultra-modern" rooms (from $280), a four-story nightclub and a flashy Philippe StarckKatsuya Uechi restaurant, the recently renovated Andaz San Diego (600 F St.; sandiego.andaz.hyatt.com) seems designed to lure stylish young Angelenos south.

15 December 2013 WATERFRONTTIMES.COM Waterfront Times WATERFRONTTIMES.COM Big kayaking One of the best ways to see South Florida's watery wildernesses is by canoe and kayak. Now that mosquito season has let up, you can use both hands to paddle instead of constantly smacking yourself on the face. Park rangers will lead the way and tell you all sorts of fascinating things. There's a big menu of these things for both the Big Cypress National Preserve and Everglades National Park. In Big Cypress, the canoe trips called Heart of the Swamp go on all winter until the last one on April 13. Big Cypress in many ways is an extension of the inland and upland Everglades, a quite different environment from the coastal parts of the better known national park. One of the most popular tours is the Turner River paddle, which begins at Tamiami Trail in Big Cypress and winds up in Everglades near Chokoloskee. Heart of the Swamp trips happen on Saturdays, Sunday and Wednesdays until the last one on April 13. You can use the institutional canoes and equipment or bring your own. You needn't be an expert, but some basic paddling experience helps a lot. You'll also need your own water, lunch, binoculars, sunscreen, and bug repellent. There will still be insects you enjoy spiders, right? So wear long sleeves and pants. Bare feet and flip-flops are terrible choices; wear socks and shoes that are okay to get wet and muddy, or sandals held on by straps. Big Cypress paddling trips start at 10 a.m. and last four to five hours, with specifics depending on water level and other factors. You'll need a reservation, so phone ahead at least two weeks before the date you choose. The number, 239-695-4758, is active from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. To see what else you can do in Big Cypress, visit the website at www.nps.gov/bicy. You'll need the same carry-ons for the Everglades National Park trips. No schedule was available at press time for December, so watch for them to be posted on the park website at www.nps.gov/ever/planyourvisit/rangerprograms.htm. There are ranger-led programs on the water from the visitor centers at Flamingo (50 miles southwest of Homestead) and Chokoloskee, which is at the south end of State Road 29, about 40 miles east of Naples. The full slate of seasonal free ranger programs will begin Dec. 22, and run through March 31. Boat tours and boat rentals also are available at Flamingo and Chokoloskee. You can get current information by calling Flamingo at 239-695-2945 and Chokoloskee at 239-695-3311. Whale watching Want to watch whales without going to Alaska in winter? Try northeast Florida's coastline, say the Jacksonville-St. Augustine area, where you can see them from the beach sometimes even from State Road A1A. Now's the time to do it. They are right whales, rarest of the big ones. They grow to 50 feet long and 70 tons. They come from Canada (Bay of Fundy) to the coasts of north Florida and south Georgia where they give birth to their 14foot little ones. And they do it while swimming just outside the surf line. Right whales have endangered status and a high level of legal protection. Whale scientists estimate that their population is down to 300, maybe 400 specimens. They are believed to live as long as 100 years, unless they are killed in collisions with ships. That happens a lot, so NOAA and other agencies patrol overhead with scout planes carrying scientists. They study the behavior of the whales and warn ships in the area to stay at least 500 yards away, but they haven't figured out how to get the whales to stay that far from ships. Ships 65 feet long or longer are required also to reduce their speed to 10 knots in calving areas. The whales come so close to shore that skippers of smaller powerboats would be well advised to do the same. Calving season begins in mid-November and lasts to mid-April. The whales can be hard to spot when they're just below the ocean surface, but when seen they are easy to tell apart from other whales. Barb Zoodsma, coordinator of NOAA's right whale recovery project in the Southeast, tells how: "Right whales are dark with no dorsal fin and they often swim slowly at or just below the water's surface. Many assume that due to their size right whales would be easy to see, but just a slight difference in the texture on the water's surface is often the only clue that a whale is present." In days of old, the story goes, the right whale got its name from whalers who rated it the right whale to catch, as opposed to the wrong ones which were harder to harpoon. That doesn't ring very true, does it? If you'd like to get involved in whale work, volunteer surveyors and spotters are recruited and trained by the Marineland Right Whale project. Check that out at http://marinelandrightwhale.blogspot.com. For a firsthand account of a sky view, and how the aerial survey teams work, look here: www.neaq.org/conservation_and_research/projects/e ndangered_species_habitats/right_whale_research/the _first_observation_of_a_rightwhale_birth.php. There's more info on seasonal ship speed restrictions at www.nmfs.noaa.gov/pr/shipstrike. One day without a license What if somebody gives you a holiday gift of fishing tackle, but you don't have a Florida fishing license? Don't worry about it. You can do freshwater fishing on Saturday, Dec. 28, without a license. Florida allows license-free fishing four days a year in fresh water and four days in salt to coincide with holidays and other special events. Here's the schedule for 2014: Salt water: First Saturday and Sunday in June, the first Saturday in September, and the Saturday following Thanksgiving. Fresh water: first Saturday and Sunday in April and the second Saturday and Sunday in June. KAYAKING | FROM PAGE 1 11 Critical Home Inspection Traps to be Aware of Weeks Before Listing Your Home for Sale According to industry experts, there are over 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection when your home is for sale. A new report has been prepared which identifies the eleven most common of these problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale. Whether you own an old home or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during a home inspection. If not identified and dealt with, any of these 11 items could cost you dearly in terms of repair. That's why it's critical that you read this report before you list your home. If you wait until the building inspector flags these issues for you, you will almost certainly experience costly delays in the close of your home sale or, worse, turn prospective buyers away altogether. In most cases, you can make a reasonable preinspection yourself if you know what you're looking for, and knowing what you're looking for can help you prevent little problems from growing into costly and unmanageable ones. To help homesellers deal with this issue before their homes are listed, a free report entitled "11 Things You Need to Know to Pass Your Home Inspection" has been compiled which explains the issues involved. To hear a brief recorded message about how to order your FREE copy of this report call toll-free 1-800-662-2954 and enter 8042. You can call any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Get your free special report NOW to learn how to ensure a home inspection doesn't cost you the sale of your home. This report is courtesy of Andrew Michael, Johnson and Johnson Team Realty.

Serving South Floridas Coastal Neighborhoods DECEMBER 2013 YEAR 4 ISSUE 6 Gift suggestions for the mariner ................ 5 It's not your mothers fruitcake ................. 10 Admiralty Law 5 Classifieds 17 Event Calendar 12 Galley 10 Tide Table 13 Boat gridlock feared when FEC bridge is closed DOUGLAS JORDAN Waterfront Times FORT LAUDERDALE A new passenger rail service offering a faster connection between Miami and Orlando has some residents and the marine industry worried that boat traffic gridlock will be the end result. Running right through downtown Fort Lauderdale, the train would use the FEC rail bridge over the New River, with the drawbridge being used more than it has in decades. I wish we could stop it, said Barry Flanigan, chairman of the Fort Lauderdale Marine Advisory Board. And when that bridge is down, nothing can pass under it, not even a dinghy. All Aboard Florida, a subsidiary of Florida East Coast Industries (FECI), is spending about $1 billion to develop a privately owned, operated and maintained service that will use the set of tracks originally charted by Henry Flagler that links 28 cities along the East Coast from Miami to Jupiter. The service is projected to be up and running by 2015, said spokeswoman Ali Soule. Stations would be located in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Orlando, with hourly service running from early morning into the evening. Flanigan says the project will have a major impact on several boatyards and marinas along the south fork of the New River, and restrict access to people who bring boats of all sizes in for repairs. This has potential to harm or even kill our marine industry, he said. That passage is critical to their operations. Currently, the FEC bridge, located in downtown Fort Lauderdale just west of Andrews Avenue, stands open most of the time so boats, including mega-yachts and the Jungle Queen, can pass underneath. Its hard to get an exact estimate of the number of vessels that travel west of the FEC rail bridge, but larger boats that require openings of the nearby Andrews Avenue bridge, can be tracked by looking at the bridge tender logs. Each opening is recorded into the log, with the total number of vessels that SEE BRIDGE | PAGE 4 Critics say new train service could derail marine industry The FEC rail bridge across the New River in downtown Fort Lauderdale is left in the open position unless a freight train travel s through. Under a plan to run a passenger train service, the bridge would only open ondemand for boat traffic. Snook keeper season over until February ARNOLD MARKOWITZ Waterfront Times Snook keeper season closes Dec. 1 until the end of February on the Gulf Coast, Florida Keys and Everglades National Park. On the Atlantic Coast and Lake Okeechobee, you can keep one until Dec. 15. It has to be at least 28 inches long (total length) and no longer than 32 inches. The Atlantic season will reopen on Feb. 1. Snook can be caught during closed season, but must be released. That makes it advisable (but not required) to use circle hooks with natural baits, flatten barbs on jigs and plugs and try cutting treble hook rigs back to singles. All thats to reduce injuries to fish that have to be let go anyway. Be gentle. No lip-ripping, please. No yanking out the hooks and tossing the fish. For a lot more info on how to do it right, look here: myfwc.com/research/saltwater/fish/snook/reduce-catch-release-mortality. Manatee season Its time again for powerboaters to watch out for manatees and not hit any. With cooler weather, the sea cows are migrating south to warmer waters. Were likely to see them more and still more in South Floridas waterw ays, even far inland as far as they have to go to feel comfortable. Its easier to avoid hitting manatees if you ease back on the throttle and look for them because they probably arent looking for you. Manatees often feed in shallow seagrass beds adjacent to deeper waters, said Carol Knox, the FWCs Imperiled Species Management section leader. Wearing polarized sunglasses helps you spot a manatee under water. Also watch for circular wave patterns on the waters surface called manatee footprints indicating a manatees presence below. The manatee protection zones weve been able to ignore until now were reactivated beginning Nov. 15. The signs youll see say slow speed, meaning the boat should be completely settled in the water, not even slightly on plane. Refresh your knowledge and get updated on new speed zone postings by going online to and click on Data and Maps to see manatee protection zones. They are listed county by county. If you see a sick, injured, orphaned, entangled or dead manatee, call the Wildlife Alert hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922). You also can text to or call #FWC and *FWC with your cell phone.

Fiberglass, Gelcoat & Painting Mechanical Repairs Survey Haulouts Bottom Painting 5 minutes to Inlet yachtpaint.com ARNOLD MARKOWITZ Waterfront Times Columnist At last the National Park Service has put away, though not quite discarded, a bad idea to create a big no-fishing zone over the offshore reefs of Biscayne National Park. Instead, well have a special recreation zone with its own fishing regulations: lower bag limits and tighter size limits than outside, no-anchor protection for the reefs below, a probably controversial system of access by permit only and more. Shelving the no-fishing stinker for at least the next 10 years, while making more reasonable attempts to re-stock the parks declining sport fishery, honors an agreement with the state of Florida that the Park Service has wasted four-plus years futilely trying to ignore. Now Biscayne can move ahead with a required 30year general management plan and a separate, shorterterm fishery management plan that may cover considerably more territory than the special recreation zones 14,585 surface acres. The general management plan is essentially the same collection of alternatives published but withdrawn in 2011, now with the addition of two new alternatives numbered 6 and 7. The one Biscaynes pushing is Alternative 6. In addition to changes mentioned above, grouper and lobster catching will be banned in the park, including the traditional two-day state lobster mini-season every July. No-engine zones will be imposed on the three propeller-ravaged Featherbed Banks and around Totten Key near the parks southern end. Theres a slow-speed zone 1,000 feet along almost the entire mainland shoreline and a shorter, wider one on the bay shoreline of Elliott Key. Both plans feature important cooperation and technical assistance by the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation (FWC) Commission. Its staff is ready to start work on park-specific fishing rules. The agencies are compromising with flexible rule making, periodic monitoring and science-based reviews. Those are meant to determine, after 10 years of close attention, whether a more drastic resort to nofishing zones is necessary or not. Not everyone is going to like what theyve come up with. If that means you, theres a chance to speak up for other ideas at three December public hearings on the general management plan. That plans latest version, emphasizing Alternative 6, was made public in mid-November. As this is written, the fishery plan is still a work in progress. A summary has been posted online (see Up close) but the details and graphics may not be there until mid-2014. The FWC on Nov. 21 agreed to authorize staff to begin writing the rules. Both plans have been delayed by years of needless controversy. From the moment of the first what-if mention of no-fishing zones also called marine reserves, which doesnt sound as awful fishing-doers disagreed. Not much at first, but as government indicated it was serious about no-fishing zones, disagreements became complaints, then objections, then protests, then loud hollering. From the start, suspicions were voiced by a few among us of a secret government agenda, encouraged by anti-fishing wimps and sellout science, to outlaw fishing in all of Biscayne and eventually everywhere. Dont be silly, others among us said, the Park Service is listening to us. Itll be okay. We said that here, remember? True, no-fishing zones (also called marine reserves) were taken off the table for a while, but they popped up again. We shouted them down again, and again back they came. Was the NPS paying attention? The secret agenda alarmists said see? They pretend to listen, but then they do what they want anyway. Theyre going to ban all fishing! Little by little, that argument grew louder and seemed less preposterous. If Gallup did a fishing poll, wed bet a lot more than a few people would say they believe it. While most of us were hollering, some FWC people showed NPS people a document called a Memo of Understanding, and admonished them more or less as follows: It says here that when Florida gave the government a huge chunk of Biscayne Bay for that nice national park, you were forbidden to do marine reserve zones unless everything else you could do about fish decline was tried and failed. You agreed, and guess what; were going to hold you to it. That brought us to where we are now. The fishery plan is supposed to govern fishing policy for five to 10 years, with a goal of increasing the abundance and average size of certain species by at least 20 percent.

4 WATERFRONTTIMES.COM December2013 Waterfront Times more than $500 million, was quickly dismissed. Instead, the company decided to just use the existing bridge, which was constructed in the 1970s to replace the original 1912 bridge. Soule declined to answer why that option was chosen. That things an antique, Flanigan said. I think its unlikely to stand up to the kind of usage this service will require. He hopes to at least see an end to the automated closures. We absolutely need a human bridge tender there if theyre going to be doing that many closings, he said. We really need one now, even without the passenger rail. In October, a 55-year-old Dania Beach woman attempted to cross the bridge on foot after the passage of a train minutes earlier, but became trapped about 22 feet off the ground when the bridge went back into its normal upright position. She was rescued by Fort Lauderdale Fire-Rescue. Though signs prohibit people from walking on the bridge, many have suggested that a human tender would have prevented the near tragedy. And its not just commercial interests objecting to the service. Tom Healy owns a 48-foot trawler and a waterfront home on the New River, just west of the railway bridge. Even without train traffic, the bridge already poses dilemmas. That stretch of the river is very narrow, especially upriver, he said. Right now, it only closes occasionally, which weve learned to deal with. But if theyre closing it all the time for passenger trains, I dont know if well ever take the boat out again. Bob Brinkman, who also lives on the New River, fears potential noise that area residents will endure from so many trains. Its going to be significant, Im sure, Brinkman said. But the thing is, I doubt if we need this new service, anyway. Whats wrong with the current Amtrak service? Flanigan said the Marine Advisory Board is still working with All Aboard Florida about logistics. Theres not much optimism that we can prevent this thing. So, our best hope is to see some kind of negotiated schedule. Patience Cohn of the Marine Industries Association of South Florida, e-mailed a statement on behalf of the organization. For the past year MIASF leadership has been in discussions with All Aboard Florida and FEC to assure the increased passenger rail traffic and the need for a navigable waters can coexist. Soule declined to answer questions from The Waterfront Times about the specifics of plans and operations, referring instead to the All Aboard Florida website at www.allaboardflorida.com. We realize this is an issue, which, like our statement says, we have been working with the community. pass through noted, said Susan Smith, an administrator with the Broward County Highway and Bridge Maintenance Division. All told, the Andrews Avenue bridge does about 10,000 openings per year. Peak months are March, April and May. The highest month was March, with 962 openings. The lowest month was September, with 623. And thats just counting the larger boats that need more than the 18 feet of vertical clearance provided by the Andrews bridge when its closed. Smaller powerboats such as center consoles, runabouts and skiffs all of which would still require the FEC rail bridge to open are not counted. Working by remote control, the FEC bridge is lowered for about a dozen freight trains each day. But the new passenger service would double, even triple, the number of times it would have to go down. Soule insisted that the company understands the concern. All Aboard Florida recognizes the importance of the marine industry in Broward County, and has been working closely with many of the communitys stakeholders since the project started last year, Soule said. We will continue to engage and coordinate with one of Broward Countys largest employment sectors and economic generators as the intercity passenger rail project progresses to construction and operation. Thats not enough, Flanigan said. When we met with the All Aboard Florida people at the Broward Alliance, they had no idea the number of large vessels that travel through there every single day, and they were surprised to find that many of them are being towed through there. They had no concept that the tides also limit navigation through there. Its going to be a huge problem. When it was proposed that they might consider moving to tracks west of the city, they suggested that maybe our marine industry should consider moving. Flanigan said a worst-case scenario could be that the larger boatyards might decide to leave Fort Lauderdale altogether and head to areas such as Palm Beach. When the idea of resuming passenger service on the FEC railway was first talked about a couple of years ago, proposals called for a new structure to be built. Three options have been considered: a 65-foot fixed bridge, a 45-foot drawbridge and a tunnel under the New River. The tunnel option, which would have cost BRIDGE FROM PAGE 1 N ATIONAL M ARINE I NSTITUTE NATIONAL MARINE INSTITUTE INC., a tax exempt,nonprofit corporation, State of Florida and federally authorized as a 501 (C) (3) charitable organization.

It should also be noted that the FCC no longer requires proficiency in Morse code for many of its amateur radio ratings. Morse code keys are becoming rare and, like the ships bell clock, are becoming interesting artifacts that might increase in value. LORAN-C receivers: another once ubiquitous part of navigation that has disappeared. Because of the almost universal adoption of GPS, both the U.S. and Canadian Coast Guards ceased transmitting LORAN-C signals in 2010, essentially making all LORAN-C receivers in North America an item worthy of the electronic recycling bin. On the other hand, if you look at them as potential future artifacts worthy of an office shelf or a wall decoration, in a few years who knows they could be valuable. NOAA paper charts: As of April 13 2014, the federal government will no long print traditional lithographic (paper) nautical charts, ending a traditional product that has existed since 1862. Instead, NOAA will provide electronic Print On Demand charts and PDFs that can be downloaded and printed, or otherwise provided for by third party print services. Essentially, this means any traditional lithographic chart now provided by NOAA services can be considered a possible future antique. Given the abuse most charts received in the past (not to mention the countless charts that been used for everything from table blotters to artists backgrounds), I would imagine that any of these lithographic charts found in pristine condition might prove a potential future treasure. So those are a few of my suggestions for future seaworthy antiques. They could prove to be good holiday pr esents, or at least stocking stuffers. You, of course, are welcome to think of others just make sure it comes from the heart! Or, as a lady friend of mine puts it, Whatever you give me, I know will be great, followed by, just make sure you keep the receipt! Happy holidays! Mark Ercolin is a maritime attorney based in Fort Lauderdale. BY MARK ERCOLIN Waterfront Times Columnist Have you finished your holiday shopping yet? The stores have been selling cards and decorations since September, so its not like you havent been on notice. Of course, getting something for your favorite mariner has its own problems mostly because serious sailors tend to buy the latest and greatest gadgets for their boats long before their friends and family find out that new equipment even exists. This isnt necessarily a bad thing. A mariner with the most updated equipment will tend to operate a very seaworthy vessel providing the equipment is working properly and the mariner knows how to use it. Generally, maritime case law shows that if you have a great piece of equipment on board (such as a radar) and it either isnt working properly or is used by someone improperly trained, your vessel can still be considered unseaworthy if an accident occurs. This applies even if the equipment in question isnt legally required for your boat. So if all other ideas fail, a good maritime training course might be a great present for your favorite mariner! But assuming your mariner friends already have a lot of really cool equipment that they know how to use, what do you do then? Well, my present suggestion is actually inspired from watching the Antique Road Show. For those unfamiliar with the PBS television series, ordinary people bring their collected stuff to professional appraisers to find out if its valuable or just old junk. The marine marketplace is filled with items that once helped make vessels seaworthy but are no longer generally used or soon wont be. That means they may become more valuable in the future, or at least make for some interesting paperweights or conversation pieces. With that in mind, heres my idea for potential gifting to mariners. This list is in no particular order and comes without any guarantees that any of these gifts can ever prove truly valuable. After all, sometimes junk is just junk: Ships bell clock: Actually, this one is always a classy gift. I add it solely because the item has become an anachronism. Traditionally, and in certain maritime legal situations, seamen stood four-hour deck watches throughout the day. The time was originally tolled by striking a bell at half hour increments, adding one extra strike per half hour until the fourth hour was reached. When eight bells were struck, seamen knew it was time for the change of watch. By the mid 19th century, clock makers began building well made maritime clocks that tolled out the eight-bell watch. Modern electronics have pretty much done away with the need for these wonderful timepieces, but they do remain treasured heirlooms by those who have them or receive them. It should also be noted that they do seem to have increased in value rather significantly in the last few years, so it should be a very appreciated gift. Morse code keys: Once a ubiquitous part of most commercial and military vessel radio rooms, Morse code keys are quickly disappearing from common use and even common memory. Once among the most important forms of international communications, the United States Coast Guard has long ceased all use of Morse code on the radio, and no longer monitors any radio frequencies for Morse code transmissions, includADMIRALTY LAW AIR COMPRESSOR SYSTEMS for DIVERS Compressed Air Supplies and Equipment, Inc.

6 WATERFRONTTIMES.COM December2013 Waterfront Times year, probably a gross underguess. Even if its accurate, that loads urgency onto the need to balance the needs and desires of all those people with the park services legal obligations to protect the natural and cultural resources. Lets all look closely at Alternative 6. Lets see if we can live with it, or something pretty close to it, and speak up at the public hearings. Feedback: witzfish@att.net. Up close Biscayne National Parks new fishery and general management plans are online at www.nps.gov/bisc. If the Fishery Management Plan and General management Plan are not featured on the home page, go to the left-side menu and click on the Management link. Again in the left-side menu, click on the Park Planning link. There will be links to the General Management Plan (see Alternative 6) and the Fishery Management Plan (see Alternative 4). Here is the schedule of public hearings for the General Management Plan: Monday Dec. 9 at Newman Alumni Center, University of Miami, 6200 San Amaro Drive, Coral Gables. Tuesday Dec. 10 at Florida City Commission chambers, 404 W. Palm Drive, Florida City. Wednesday Dec. 11 at Holiday Inn Key Largo, 99701 Overseas Highway (MM 100). All three meetings run from 6 o 9 p.m. with grouper and snapper. The general management plan, the more complex and costly of the two, will outline park policy for 20 to 30 years. Soon after the public hearings in December, that should be ready for implementation, perhaps with a few tweaks. Theres a set timetable for the rest of the process, but then it bumps into external realities. Such as money. The plan might be approved, but it wont be implemented unless the Interior Department, National Park service and ultimately Congress supply the money to pay for it. According to Biscaynes estimates, it will need 19 additional fulltime staff members to do Alternative 6, plus $2,972,000 in new one-time costs for facility improvements and an estimated $4,820,000 to build a new visitor center in Miami. The only visitor center in the park now is in the headquarters at Convoy Point, 9 miles east of Homestead, almost at the southern end. Thats too far from the parks northern territory Stiltsville, Soldier Key, Fowey Light, etc. for effective patrol and enforcement. People entering the park there will need to be informed about the new rules. That visitor center should also work as a launch site for organized tours of the park. Both plans should be ready for implementation next year, but lets not hang by the neck while we wait. We cant reckon accurately whether either or both will move smoothly or promptly through both the state and federal approval processes. Keep in mind that the 10-year special recreation zone will begin only when the management plan is implemented and the money to pay for it is in the parks livewell. The same goes for physical improvements and new rangers. Dont count on our government for a real-world timetable more exact than some day between sometime and eventually. I cant recall a Congress or a president willing to make or keep a promise to better support our national parks. They are stiffed and squeezed in budget after budget. Biscayne, with only six law enforcement rangers now, cant adequately enforce the regulations it already has. It will be a surprise no, a shock if its given the resources to enforce the special recreation zones rules. Because its right alongside metropolitan Miami, and can be entered from many points on the mainland, Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic, the park is subject to overcrowding, overfishing and overpollution. Its little wonder that fish stocks have declined so steadily for 30 years. Although our secret agenda alarmist friends doubt the validity or even the honesty of the science that documents it, we dont. Considering the growth of local populations and increasing boat traffic, we would doubt the validity even the competence of science saying the opposite.

To the shore: Cruise up the coast to the Cottage in La Jolla (7702 Fay Ave.; cottagelajolla.com), a wouldbe surf bungalow with an umbrella-canopied patio, which makes use of the Western bounty with dishes like lemon ricotta pancakes ($10.95), polenta with tomato relish, kale pesto, goat cheese sauce and chives ($11.95) and soy chorizo hash with scrambled eggs, black beans and queso fresco ($11.95). Then continue north to the 2,000-acre Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, home to one of the rarest species of pine in the world, sandstone cliffs shaped by the sea and a lagoon that hosts migrating seabirds. Mission Viejo: Founded in 1769 as the first of Californias 21 missions, the Mission Basilica San Diego de Alcala has a bloody and politically complicated past. Today, the National Historic Landmark is an exceptionally peaceful place an active parish on a hillside carpeted with ice plants, with a Spanish-style garden at its center and a gift shop that sells Mexican folk art like milagros (religious charms) and Talavera pottery. For lunch, head north to the Island Style Cafe (5950 Santo Road; islandstylecafe.com), a home-style Hawaiian cafe with fabric orchids on the tables and tropical landscape prints on the walls. Try the Koreanstyle fried chicken thighs ($8.75), served with classic sides like macaroni salad, and a customary glass of POG (passion-orange-guava juice, $2.50). Cerveza land: One of the centers of the countrys ever-expanding craft beer industry, San Diego has an intimidating number and diversity of breweries (more than 70 total, including 20 or so new ones last year alone). Enthusiasts should seek out the West Coaster (westcoastersd.com), a monthly magazine devoted entirely to the citys beer scene. Each brewery has its own focus and ambience, from the potent beers with FREDA MOON The New York Times Like its urban rival Los Angeles, San Diego is not so much a city as a loose collection of overlapping (and sometimes colliding) communities bound by arterial, life-giving freeways: Its a military town in Coronado; a surf town in funky, eclectic Ocean Beach; and a border town in the historic Mexican-American neighborhood of Barrio Logan. If San Diego has a cohesive identity at all, its a shared embrace of an easy, breezy Southern California casualness. With its lack of pretension, the city is often seen by outsiders as a kind of Pleasantville a bland, happy place with an exceptional amount of sunshine. Depending on how deep you look, that may be all you see. But there are, after all, worse things than Spanish tiles, palm trees, tropical blooms, year-round flip-flops, fresh fish tacos and bonfires on the beach. First stop: If possible, arrive in San Diego by train. Opened in 1915, the Santa Fe Depot (Union Station) is a Spanish Revival structure surrounded by fountains, palm trees and benches decorated in tile mosaic. Next door, in the stations former baggage building, the downtown location of the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego is hosting The Very Large Array, an exhibition of works by about 100 local and Tijuana artists (running through June 1, 2014), that offers a compelling introduction to San Diego as a border city. Admission, $10. Afternoon delight: Sitting above the water on a stilted deck on Harbor Island, C Level (880 Harbor Island Drive; cohnrestaurants.com) looks across the San Diego bay to the Naval ships at Coronado, downtowns towering skyline and the tall ships at the Maritime Museum. On weekday afternoons from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., the bar menu has $5 specials on cocktails including the Desi Arnaz (Cruzan mango rum, papaya nectar, mint, fresh lime and soda) and the Sol y Mar (Finlandia grapefruit vodka, aloe juice and fresh lemon) and snacks like rice-paper-wrapped prawns and steamed mussels with chorizo. Afterward, take a giddy ride on the Giant Dipper wooden roller coaster ($6 a person) at Belmont Park, a vintage amusement park on the beach in Mission Bay. Pork shop: Opened in 2011 and beloved by locals, Carnitas Snack Shack (2632 University Ave.; carnitassnackshack.com) is a glorified taco stand serving porkcentric comfort food including carnitas tacos with guacamole and salsa fresca ($7), braised Duroc pork belly with a fricas, apple and radish salad ($8), a steak sandwich on jalapeno and Cheddar cheese bread ($9) from a takeout window in North Park. The squat structure has outdoor tables and heat lamps around back and a giant sculpture of a metal pig adorning its roof. For dessert, head for Adams Avenue and try the house-made Mexican chocolate or banana walnut ice cream at the mom-and-pop Mariposa Ice Cream or the exotic paletas (Mexican-style popsicles) at Viva Pops, which come in flavors like lavender lemonade, salted caramel and mango-chile. Both shops, at 3450 and 3330 Adams, respectively, close at 9 p.m. on weekends. Then, explore the buzzing Normal Heights neighborhood. Stop in at Lestats Coffee House, at 3343 Adams, for caffeine to fuel the remainder of the evening. While there, check the events calendar for the attached concert space, which hosts local music acts, comedy shows and open mic nights next door. Old School, New Age: In South Park, rockabillies and old-timers take turns playing shuffleboard at Hamiltons Tavern (1521 30th St.; hamiltonstavern.com), which has a daunting 28 taps, two cask beer engines and some 200 bottled beers and claims to be the citys oldest alehouse. Or, instead, have an only-in-California experience at Kava Lounge (2812 Kettner Boulevard; kavalounge.com), a New Age bar, dance club and arts space that promotes future planetary night life in the form of vegan cocktails, San Diegos eclectic, casual identity amid a bay SEE SAN DIEGO | PAGE 9 WAYPOINTS

Walk the two-mile Bayside Trail along a rocky point of sage scrub and maguey plants, near where in 1542 Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo led the first European expedition to the coast of what is now California. For brunch, head downtown to Little Italys Extraordinary Desserts (1430 Union St.; extraordinarydesserts.com), which has a European breakfast ($20.95) spread of imported cheese, fresh fruit, homemade granola, smoked salmon, decadent pastries and rustic breads starting at 11 a.m. Reservations recommended. Park and ride: With 15 museums, one of the countrys most well-respected zoos and 1,200 acres of hills, gardens, forests and ravines, Balboa Park (balboapark.org) cannot be fully explored in a weekend, much less an afternoon. But, for an overview, San Diego Fly Rides ($75 a person, including a snack, water and helmet) uses high-end electric bikes, which can travel up to 20 mph, to cover 9 miles of ground on its two-hour Spanish Twist tour (16 and older). For one final San Diego meal, sample the tacos de lengua (tongue), pastor (marinated, spit-barbecued pork) or cabeza (beef head) at Northgate Market, a Mexican grocery the size of a Costco with a food court that turns out fresh, house-made tortillas, along with enough tamales, ceviches, antojitos (snacks) and aguas frescas (fresh fruit waters) to feed a pueblito. heavy metal names (Anvil, Horny Devil, Evil Dead Red) at AleSmith Brewing Company (9368 Cabot Drive; alesmith.com) to the vaguely steampunk dcor at Societe Brewing Company (8262 Clairemont Mesa Boulevard; societebrewing.com) to Lightning Brewery (13200 Kirkham Way, Poway; lightningbrewery.com), in the far suburb of Poway, which is run by a brewers brewer with a Ph.D. in biochemistry and which feels like stepping into garage science experiment. Sea and sky: In the perennial debate over where to find San Diegos best fish tacos, the line at Blue Water Seafood Market & Grill (3667 India St.; bluewaterseafoodsandiego.com) is one indication. The menu reads like a choose-your-own-aquatic adventure, listing 12 kinds of seafood including Scottish salmon, Hawaiian albacore and Alaskan halibut six kinds of marinade (among them: chipotle, blackened and bronzed) and four preparations: salad, sandwich, plate or tacos (from $4 per taco to $25 for a plate of jumbo shrimp). Afterward, have a nightcap next door at Aero Club (3365 India; aeroclubbar.com), a charmingly divey whiskey bar with some 600 bottles climbing the wall and toy airplanes hanging from the ceiling. Alternatively, settle into a zero-gravity lounge chair for an 8 p.m. movie ($15) at Cinema Under the Stars, an open-air theater in Mission Hills. Europe in America: Stop in at Bird Rock Coffee Roasters in La Jolla (5627 La Jolla Boulevard;birdrockcoffeeroasters.com) for a small-batch, house-roasted coffee to go from Roast Magazines 2012 Micro Roaster of the Year. Then take a slow Sunday drive down the coast, past the sandstone Sunset Cliffs to the Cabrillo National Visiting Balboa Park requires more than an afternoon SAN DIEGO FROM PAGE 8 As the surf rolls in, visitors walk along the beach at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve in San Diego.

Rooms are pet-friendly and start at $146. With 159 ultra-modern rooms (from $280), a four-story nightclub and a flashy Philippe StarckKatsuya Uechi restaurant, the recently renovated Andaz San Diego (600 F St.; sandiego.andaz.hyatt.com) seems designed to lure stylish young Angelenos south.

15 December 2013 WATERFRONTTIMES.COM Waterfront Times WATERFRONTTIMES.COM Big kayaking One of the best ways to see South Floridas watery wildernesses is by canoe and kayak. Now that mosquito season has let up, you can use both hands to paddle instead of constantly smacking yourself on the face. Park rangers will lead the way and tell you all sorts of fascinating things. Theres a big menu of these things for both the Big Cypress National Preserve and Everglades National Park. In Big Cypress, the canoe trips called Heart of the Swamp go on all winter until the last one on April 13. Big Cypress in many ways is an extension of the inland and upland Everglades, a quite different environment from the coastal parts of the better known national park. One of the most popular tours is the Turner River paddle, which begins at Tamiami Trail in Big Cypress and winds up in Everglades near Chokoloskee. Heart of the Swamp trips happen on Saturdays, Sunday and Wednesdays until the last one on April 13. You can use the institutional canoes and equipment or bring your own. You neednt be an expert, but some basic paddling experience helps a lot. Youll also need your own water, lunch, binoculars, sunscreen, and bug repellent. There will still be insects you enjoy spiders, right? So wear long sleeves and pants. Bare feet and flip-flops are terrible choices; wear socks and shoes that are okay to get wet and muddy, or sandals held on by straps. Big Cypress paddling trips start at 10 a.m. and last four to five hours, with specifics depending on water level and other factors. Youll need a reservation, so phone ahead at least two weeks before the date you choose. The number, 239-695-4758, is active from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. To see what else you can do in Big Cypress, visit the website at www.nps.gov/bicy. Youll need the same carry-ons for the Everglades National Park trips. No schedule was available at press time for December, so watch for them to be posted on the park website at www.nps.gov/ever/planyourvisit/rangerprograms.htm. There are ranger-led programs on the water from the visitor centers at Flamingo (50 miles southwest of Homestead) and Chokoloskee, which is at the south end of State Road 29, about 40 miles east of Naples. The full slate of seasonal free ranger programs will begin Dec. 22, and run through March 31. Boat tours and boat rentals also are available at Flamingo and Chokoloskee. You can get current information by calling Flamingo at 239-695-2945 and Chokoloskee at 239-695-3311. Whale watching Want to watch whales without going to Alaska in winter? Try northeast Floridas coastline, say the Jacksonville-St. Augustine area, where you can see them from the beach sometimes even from State Road A1A. Nows the time to do it. They are right whales, rarest of the big ones. They grow to 50 feet long and 70 tons. They come from Canada (Bay of Fundy) to the coasts of north Florida and south Georgia where they give birth to their 14foot little ones. And they do it while swimming just outside the surf line. Right whales have endangered status and a high level of legal protection. Whale scientists estimate that their population is down to 300, maybe 400 specimens. They are believed to live as long as 100 years, unless they are killed in collisions with ships. That happens a lot, so NOAA and other agencies patrol overhead with scout planes carrying scientists. They study the behavior of the whales and warn ships in the area to stay at least 500 yards away, but they havent figured out how to get the whales to stay that far from ships. Ships 65 feet long or longer are required also to reduce their speed to 10 knots in calving areas. The whales come so close to shore that skippers of smaller powerboats would be well advised to do the same. Calving season begins in mid-November and lasts to mid-April. The whales can be hard to spot when theyre just below the ocean surface, but when seen they are easy to tell apart from other whales. Barb Zoodsma, coordinator of NOAAs right whale recovery project in the Southeast, tells how: Right whales are dark with no dorsal fin and they often swim slowly at or just below the waters surface. Many assume that due to their size right whales would be easy to see, but just a slight difference in the texture on the waters surface is often the only clue that a whale is present. In days of old, the story goes, the right whale got its name from whalers who rated it the right whale to catch, as opposed to the wrong ones which were harder to harpoon. That doesnt ring very true, does it? If youd like to get involved in whale work, volunteer surveyors and spotters are recruited and trained by the Marineland Right Whale project. Check that out at http://marinelandrightwhale.blogspot.com. For a firsthand account of a sky view, and how the aerial survey teams work, look here: www.neaq.org/conservation_and_research/projects/e ndangered_species_habitats/right_whale_research/the _first_observation_of_a_rightwhale_birth.php. Theres more info on seasonal ship speed restrictions at www.nmfs.noaa.gov/pr/shipstrike. One day without a license What if somebody gives you a holiday gift of fishing tackle, but you dont have a Florida fishing license? Dont worry about it. You can do freshwater fishing on Saturday, Dec. 28, without a license. Florida allows license-free fishing four days a year in fresh water and four days in salt to coincide with holidays and other special events. Heres the schedule for 2014: Salt water: First Saturday and Sunday in June, the first Saturday in September, and the Saturday following Thanksgiving. Fresh water: first Saturday and Sunday in April and the second Saturday and Sunday in June. KAYAKING | FROM PAGE 1 11 Critical Home Inspection Traps to be Aware of Weeks Before Listing Your Home for Sale According to industry experts, there are over 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection when your home is for sale. A new report has been prepared which identifies the eleven most common of these problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale. Whether you own an old home or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during a home inspection. If not identified and dealt with, any of these 11 items could cost you dearly in terms of repair. That's why it's critical that you read this report before you list your home. If you wait until the building inspector flags these issues for you, you will almost certainly experience costly delays in the close of your home sale or, worse, turn prospective buyers away altogether. In most cases, you can make a reasonable preinspection yourself if you know what you're looking for, and knowing what you're looking for can help you prevent little problems from growing into costly and unmanageable ones. To help homesellers deal with this issue before their homes are listed, a free report entitled 1 Things You Need to Know to Pass Your Home Inspection has been compiled which explains the issues involved. To hear a brief recorded message about how to order your FREE copy of this report call toll-free 1-800-662-2954 and enter 8042. You can call any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Get your free special report NOW to learn how to ensure a home inspection doesn't cost you the sale of your home. This report is courtesy of Andrew Michael, Johnson and Johnson Team Realty.
