When people think of coral reefs in Florida, they tend to think only of the Keys, said Jamie Monty, manager of the program. But our reef extends more than 100 miles to the north, all the way to northern Martin County. Monty said coral reefs are in a state of decline around the world, and that Floridas reef is no exception. In southeast Florida, were seeing the reef suffering from a variety of things, Monty said. Some of those things include fishing, diving and other boating activities. Adding to the issue is land-based pollution such as stormwater runoff and sewage and coastal construction. The marine industry and shipping also affect the health of the reef, Monty said. Other factors include just a lack of awareness on the part of people who use the water for business or pleasure. To help spread awareness, the FDEP held a kick-off meeting in January for the Our Florida Reefs Community Working Groups at Nova Southeastern Universitys Center for Excellence in Coral Reef Research campus. Monty said the community planning process for Floridas coral reefs is the largest project to date by the program. The meeting was sponsored by The Nature Conservancy, hosted by Nova and coordinated with partners from NOAAs reef conservation program. This is an exciting time for the future of Floridas coral reefs, as evident by this large effort and the generous donation of time by working group members, said Drew Bartlett, deputy secretary of Water Policy and Ecosystem Restoration. Monty said the state has spent the last 10 years in a data gathering mode, working with more than 60 partners including national, state and local agencies, academic institutions, industry and members of the private sector. The next step is action, Monty said. Weve actually comprised a four-point plan for the year, which begins with community meetings where people learn about our reefs and share ideas. Then, well form working groups, where local representatives develop recommendations for reef management. The groups will then share those recommendations, and finally, well implement a reef management strategy. She said the members are divided into north and south working groups. The north working group will focus on coral reef resources offshore of Palm Beach and Martin counties, while the south working group will focus on those offshore of Broward and Miami-Dade counties north of Biscayne National Park. Thats great news to Simone Nageon de Lestang, an intern with the Coral Restoration Foundation, a Key Largobased nonprofit conservation organization dedicated to creating offshore nurseries and restoration programs for threatened coral species. Coral reefs are home to 25 percent of all marine species, and ours is the third largest coral barrier reef system in the world, after the Great Barrier Reef and the Belize Barrier Reef, Nageon de Lestang said. And weve seen as much as a 90 percent decline in two prominent species, Elkhorn and Staghorn corals. The Coral Restoration Foundation was started by Florida marine biologist Ken Nedimyer. Over the last decade, Nedimyer and his team have developed new techniques to grow and replace damaged coral, Nageon de Lestang said. Its pretty amazing, and the foundation has had a great success rate. Ken actually pioneered a new design for a coral nursery, and designed a coral tree that grows very fast. Weve planted more than 10,000 new coral, much of it in the Keys. Group seeks to protect Floridas fading coral reef Wanted: Calm Dade, Keys residents to catch crocsSEE CORAL REEF | PAGE 14 ARNOLD MARKOWITZ Waterfront TimesWho wants to be a crocodile response agent when they grow up? Gee, thats a lot of raised hands. Seriously, the state of Florida wants to talk with you folks about a part time job so interesting that you wont mind unpredictable working hours, total lack of standard employment benefits and the requirement to supply your own equipment and vehicles boat, truck, trailer, heavy duty fishing tackle, ropes, snares, snatch hooks, etc. You also need to reside in southern Miami-Dade County or the upper to middle Keys, because that is where the action is. It cant wait while you drive down there from Fort Lauderdale. First the duties and qualifications as described by SNAP for short the Statewide Nuisance Alligator Program: Agents are responsible for site visits, carcass recoveries, capture and translocations of crocodiles. Experience handling crocodilians preferred but training will be provided. Good customer services skills are a must. When crocodiles climb out of a canal and into somebodys yard or pool, car or house some or all of that it will be your job to catch that croc and take it away, dead or alive. Why are customer service skills important? For settling the nerves of frantic folks who send for you and for creating trusting relationships with crocodiles that might reasonably mistake you for a threat. You have to decide if the reward, $25 an hour with no set schedule, is worth the risk. Thats a cool thousand in a 40-hour week if you get that much work. You probably wont, so consider croc work an adventure, not a career. It may embolden you to know that American crocodiles, the South Florida brand, usually are described by experts as shy. That doesnt mean they are socially awkward wallflowers. It means they are timid, easily scared off. In their own primitive way, they understand that a little bit of fear is healthy because it makes them careful and keeps them safe. Anyone with the ambition to mess with crocodiles should adopt that outlook. Other stuff that successful applicants need to know: Fish and Wildlife (FWC) staff will teach you how to do the job. Theyll also supply what you need presumably a clipboard, charts and that sort of thing to keep detailed logs of your crocs. After applying, monitor your email daily. If the folks in charge of croc ops at FWC like your application, they will contact you by email. Beware: sometimes FWC email gets diverted to spam folders, so check those too. After initial email exchanges, further review will lead to either rejection or an invitation for an in-person interview. None of that happens fast, so be patient, the FWC warns: With our upcoming seasonal work schedule we dont anticipate being able to begin reviewing applications for some time. The crocs can wait if you can.Everglades superintendent heading westDan Kimball is retiring after 10 years as dual superintendent of Everglades and Dry Tortugas National Parks. Hell be guest of honor at a retirement dinner put on by the South Florida National Parks Trust on Friday, March 21, at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in Coral Gables. Then its westward ho, to arid Arizona. Thats a radical departure from one of the worlds greatest swamps, but deserts, mountains and cold winters have their own allure. I went to graduate school at the University of Arizona in Tucson, my wife grew up in Idaho and we lived in Colorado for 30 years. As such, we have a real attachment to the western United States, Kimball told Waterfront Times. He started his National Park Service career in 1984. Before coming to Florida he was chief of the NPS water resources division in Colorado for 12 years, then acting superintendent of Zion National Park in Utah and was special assistant to the deputy director of the park service in Washington.

I was born absentminded, he told us. It runs in the family. Its true. Wally was born Wala Hunahuna, Jr. Yes, really. That name looks Hawaiian, but his tribal ancestors were Catalan. In their traditional lingo, his name means Absent-Minded Junior. You can look it up. It also confirms that his father and grandfather were absent-minded and expected the same of Wally. Our fun-poking was gentle because we had learned social sensitivity from the scandalous news about our local pro football team, the Vulgarians. Their vulgar offensive guard, Paskudnyak, had been exposed for demonstrating too vividly the various ways in which the word offensive can be applied. Paskudnyak was suspended and universally denounced except by all the other Vulgarians. As a show of support, theyre growing their nose hair long and wearing their helmets inside out until next football season. We fishing-doers didnt want to make Wally feel bad, at least not bad enough for him to throw his beer to the floor and stomp out of the clubhouse. What if, in a blind rage, he had fallen off the dock and lacerated himself to death by trying to climb the barnacle-infested pilings? That would have spoiled everyones day. Anyhow, even the best organized among us could recall at least once forgetting something sort of impor-tant rods and reels, sunglasses, fishing license, even the boats drain plug. Youve done it too. Dont lie. We also took it easy on Wally because he had handled the hatless crisis creatively and effectively an admirable example of grace under pressure. Honest Dave, who fished with Wally that day at the stern of his friends canoe, told us the story. Daves wife Karen, paddling her kayak, was a witness too. They both work for the government, so we knew the story was true. Wally couldnt deny it if he wanted to because Dave shot photos. In case you forgot: Hats are important to fishingdoers who may not think about it until their hats are forgotten or blown overboard. A good hat is essential fishing tackle. It shields us from the sun and shades our eyes even if we dont forget our sunglasses. It deflects our partners errant casts and pads our noggins in case he beans us in spite of it. Wally usually keeps his hat in his pickup. He forgot it because he had spilled coffee on it Saturday, rinsed it off and hung it on the back porch to dry. Concentrating on his mental checklist en route to the lake Tuesday morning, he walked right past the hat. He remembered forgetting it while he and Dave prepared to launch the canoe. Neither of them had a spare hat. Wally shuffled through all the stuff in his pickup, looking for a substitute. The only prospect he found was a paper burger bag. He shook out some French fry crumbs, tried it on and saw that it wouldnt do too high, too flimsy. Dave tried folding back the edge to reinforce it and reduce volume, but then the bag didnt fit too tight. By this point in the narrative, a little crowd was gathering around our table. Some of them had been debating the new Florida regulation that lets charter captains and their crews each keep a limit of fish just like their customers. Daves story telling was more interesting.

4 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMMarch2014Waterfront Times No, wait, not my mom. Its like fishing with my aunt Yanya. Its Polish for Jennie. Karen, look at the babushka, he called to his wife. Its Aunt Yanya! The wet babushka functioned better that day than the three fishing-doers, who were after butterfly peacock but didnt see any. The lake water was still cool after a strong cold front, a good alibi for peacock but not for largemouth bass. Each of them caught a few small bass. Karen added a strong Mayan cichlid. Wally did best, catching an above average bass on a carrot-colored streamer fly that I had tied for him. Wally gave me credit for that, but attributed most of his good fortune to the damp babushka, which he now cherishes as a good luck charm. Dave took a picture of Absent Minded Jr. and his bass. They gave it a title, Babushka with Fishka. With their permission, Im publishing it here as a reminder to all of us not to go fishing without a hat, and to bring a babushka just in case. Across the room Cleat Bollard, the club dockmaster, noticed members drifting away from his rope splicing seminar. He lay down his fid and came over too. Dave paused. Suspense was building. We all looked at him and Wally, wondering what was next. I slipped each of them a fresh beer, quietly, so as not to breach the mood. I didnt want to drive around searching for a hat store and losing fishing time, Wally said. I reckoned the risk of sunstroke at more or less medium. I knew that if I barfed or fainted, my friends would recognize those symptoms of sunstroke and save me. Theyre both nurses, you know. And so (Dave went on) they launched the boats, paddled off and began casting to the shores of islands in the lake. Pretty soon Wally noticed a possible hat substitute that hed absent-mindedly stashed under the bow seat. Its a bandana made of some kind of material that holds water and regulates a gradual evaporation rate. You dip it in the lake for a minute or two and tie it around your neck, and repeat that when it dries. I have one of those too. I think it was made by Frogg Toggs. If you do a Google search for cooling bandana, youll find that and a few other brands and styles. I never imagined mine as a substitute hat, only because I cant imagine forgetting a hat. Wally can, and experiences like that have taught him to make the best of such a situation. I got it, he told Dave. Watch this. He soaked the blue bandana in the lake, folded it as a triangle, draped it over his hairy head and tied the corners under his hairy chin. After picking a few whiskers out of the knot, he was good. There was no brim to shade his eyes, but that was the only imperfection. The partners went back to fishing, with Dave stifling laughter back there in the stern. It feels like fishing with my mom in a babushka, he half-giggled. Dave, being half Polish, knows babushkas.

And despite many protests, the courts have generally found these agreements to be acceptable and enforceable. Other maritime issues, such as employment injuries, can also have very different time lines for filing suit under maritime law from their land law equivalents. They are usually shorter in time. If such injuries involve government vessels and/or government participation, the time lines may be shorter yet, requiring administrative filing and review well before any case can be presented to the courts. Interestingly, these examples are in contrast to rules regarding general maritime liens, which are usually secret and can follow a vessel virtually forever, regardless of changes in ownership, until expunged or enforced through a court action (talk about an ongoing time line!). So, what is the take away from all this? Well, when it comes to most things maritime, it usually doesnt pay to procrastinate, at least not initially. Should an incident occur that may have legal consequences, do not delay in seeking advice from a well informed and knowledgable professional in legal maritime matters. Afterwards, you can make your own decision on whether you should take the time to procrastinate. Basically, any delay should be well planned rather than stem from indolence. After all, it is not by coincidence that the motto of the U.S. Coast Guard, the oldest maritime service, is semper paratus always prepared. Oh, and while youre at it, get insurance before a hurricane appears, and fix your roof before it rains! 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 specific cases or situations. were among those waiting for an opportune time to buy a policy, you are probably too late since few if any brokers will be able to sell you a product with an eminent crisis on the way. Procrastination can have consequences. Like insurance, most legal situations tend to have sliding consequences that disfavor procrastination, particularly in the maritime arena. Depending on certain factors, the requirement for a technical response can sometimes be measured in a matter of only a few months, and the understanding of these time lines may not be that straight forward. For example, vessel owners who want to plead a limitation of liability to the federal court (i.e. an attempt to limit a possible maritime claim to the value of the vessel following an incident), they are generally limited to doing so within six months after written notice of an alleged accident. It is a rule that may be known to someone who reviewed the Supplemental Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which generally deals with admiralty issues. However, when it comes to filing certain other maritime actions, not all deadlines are available pursuant to statutes or judicial rules some are due to contractual agreement whether you actually realize that youve agreed to the contract or not. The primary examples are passenger injury suits. The language in passenger tickets often attempts to limit the ability to file against the vessel owners to one year from the time of an incident. Moreover, these tickets may also contain verbiage requiring written notice to a parent company ADMIRALTY LAW AIR COMPRESSORSYSTEMS for DIVERSCompressed Air Supplies and Equipment, Inc.Specializing in the Diving IndustryFill Whips & Panels/Manifolds Yokes Gauges Filters Hoses Oils Air Storage Tanks & Fittings Our Clients include: Dive Resorts & Scuba Shops Yacht Owners & Captains, Divers, Fire Dept.800 OldGriffinRd.,#3PHONE:(954)929-4462Dania, FL33004FAX: (954)929-4463E-MAIL: CompAirSupply@att.netBauerNew Used Supplies Sales Service Procrastination: Results range from unfortunate to tragic Custom Marine Canvas & UpholsteryCreatively Custom Made Just the Way You Want it in Ways Youve Never Seen Before!THE MARINE TAILOR DOES IT ALL:Bimini Tops Aft Tops Stern Covers Full Storage Co vers Enclosures Fly-Br idge Cushions Window Covers Navy T ops Dodgers Coamings and MoreRFAST CANVASCall Hector or Ricky for a Dockside Estimate954-596-2279or305-807-01441624 S.E. 3rd Court Deerfield Beach, FL 33441Located in the Cove Marina www.rfas tcanvas.net Custom Marine Canvas & UpholsteryRFAST CANVASLicense #07-00024146 We Moved!MARK ERCOLIN Waterfront Times ColumnistSometimes, its really hard to get started on a project or as one of my uncles used to say, No reason to fix the roof if it aint raining! As you might guess, such calculated procrastination can result in unfortunate consequences. On the other hand, while procrastination is often blamed on laziness or other human vices, there are often understandable reasons for it. Hesitation and reticence can stem from justified financial concerns. After all, few of us want to make a major financial outlay without a complete review and determination that the purchase is absolutely necessary (boat buyers may, of course, disagree). Occasionally, delays can be rewarded by a drop in price or the discovery of a better deal. It is also equally true that unless such delays are part of a well thoughtout strategy, the results can go from unfortunate to tragic. Consider maritime insurance for instance: Technically, especially if you are not carrying a ships mortgage, there is no legal requirement for keeping insurance on a vessel. So many people delay acquiring insurance or just go naked, as they say, waiting for the proper time or deal. All may go well until hurricane season when someone from the National Weather Service appears on TV with a map showing an intriguing picture of a cycloneshaped icon sitting in the Caribbean. The accompanying cone of death is aimed straight at South Florida. If you already have insurance in place, this announcement would come as just another part of life in Florida that youve already planned for with provisions.

6 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMMarch2014Waterfront Times projects to restore natural freshwater flow that was blocked long ago for agricultural and highway purposes. The latest completed one is a section of Tamiami Trail where the old roadbed was dug out and replaced by a bridge. That lets water from the state conservation areas north of the Trail to flow through to the park For sporfishing, Kimballs single best achievement was a pole and troll zone to protect the fish-infested shoal in Snake Bight from destructive gouging by boat engine propellers. He welcomed participation by veteran guides and other local experts, who worked with park staff to make rules that all could live with. He leaves Everglades with a much larger job yet undone: a general management plan (GMP) thats been going through the government mill throughout his tenure here. The latest version is in revision following a round of public hearings that Kimball conducted last year. The plan has hit this stage before and been kicked back by NPS headquarters for being too ambitious and expensive. We hope to issue a final GMP this summer and a Record of Decision by the end of 2014, Kimball said, cautious to say we hope instead of we will. Its been a long, long haul, but the Park is poised to complete this important plan this year and address challenging problems facing the Park, like boating management in Florida Bay. Kimball made a point of recognizing the assistance of fishing guides and others, who are likely to remember him best for being a good listener, taking their complaints and suggestions seriously and often following their advice. Because of their involvement, the plan represents a much better long-term plan for Park management, providing for resource protection, but also reasonable access, he said. His replacement, not yet appointed, would be wise to maintain those relationships. The farewell dinner is being planned by the South Florida National Parks Trust, which raises money andEVERGLADES | FROM PAGE 1makes grants to Everglades, Biscayne and Dry Tortugas National Parks and the Big Cypress Preserve.

Manatee count risingIn the future of evolution, a day may come when manatees will be physically able to fill in census questionnaires, for within their mittenish forefins are bone sets remarkably like five-fingered human hands. Until those emerge, manatee census data must be gathered by aerial eyeball observation, which cannot be precise. Its closest during strong cold fronts, when manatees congregate at warm water locations like power plants. That was the case on Jan. 24 and 27, when airborne state biologists and 20 observers from nine environmental organizations counted 2,317 manatees on the states east coast and 2,514 on the west. Total: 4,831, subject to follow-up verification. Those were all they saw. Theres no way to know how many they didnt see.

Manatee population counted by eyeball observationor 2012 when the sur veys were c alled off because of warm weather. Except for individual markings such as the scars of healed wounds usually inflicted by motorboat propellers one manatee looks so much like another that its hard to tell them apart. On the upside, unlike schools of fish swimming, manatees that find warm spots when the waters cold stay at the surface and hold still. An accurate count can be made of all that are visible. After two winters of above-average temperatures, this year we received several consecutive strong cold fronts that helped to gather manatees at warm-water sites where they could be more easily counted, said FWC manatee biologist Holly Edwards. Because of weather and other year-to-year variables, the surveys cant be used for confident population projections in the long term or even to establish a reliable statewide estimate for the present. Still its useful for scientists to have an at-least number for comparisons. Knowing where manatees go each year to find warm water when it gets cold helps in deciding where to establish protection zones. This years manatee count is the third highest we have recorded since the first statewide aerial survey in 1991, said Gil McRae, director of the FWCs Fish and Wildlife Research Institute. We are encouraged by the relatively high count, especially given the high number of manatee deaths documented recently. Documented fatalities last year totaled 829, with curiously high scores of 275 in Lee County (southwest) and 245 in Brevard County (northeast). Through January this year, the same counties had the states most fatalities 12 in Brevard and seven in Lee. The statistics say there were 72 watercraft-related deaths last year, comparing favorably with the average of 88 in the previous five years. Heres a chart of documented manatee deaths in Florida last year, with causes when thats known: http://myfwc.com/media/2600491/YearToDate.pdf.

An astute local businessman, hoping to realize Duvaliers dream a few years ago, built the one-story Hotel Deruisseau on a mesa directly across from the falls. I stayed there, though I would describe it as more of a sleeping space than a hotel: The room had a bed, a nightstand and an overhead bulb, all behind a door that didnt quite clear the bed. There was a shower in the communal bathroom, but no showerhead just a pipe that poured cold water, like one of the tiny cascades. (Hot water was a luxury that you have to do without.) Electricity from the generator was shut off at 10 p.m. But faucets stuck in the open position. We walked up into the falls, careful to make way for the occasional cow trotting downhill and a boy who appeared to be perhaps 10. At the bottom of the falls is a lush valley that becomes a lake when the spigots are fully loosed in late spring and fall. I discovered the falls while on a reporting trip to chronicle volunteer efforts among Haitians who are organizing their own community service groups. It brought me to this remote pocket of a country whose beauty has been devastated over the years by disasters natural, economic and political. The earthquake that struck four years ago was a combination of the three, causing billions in damage and thousands of deaths, swiftly followed by a cholera outbreak that has killed thousands more, and a presidential election that led to violent protests. The ideaDEAN NELSON The New York Times SyndicateIts hard to know exactly how many waterfalls there are on the side of the mountain in a remote corner of southeast Haiti. From my vantage point on a nearby slope, I counted at least a dozen, and that was at the end of the dry season last year. The rainy season in the spring, Id been told, puts the cascade in Cascade Pichon. From a distance, it looks impossible to get to the falls. During the ride there, in a four-wheel-drive Toyota Land Cruiser, it certainly felt impossible. We had traveled for seven hours from Port-au-Prince and maybe two of those hours were on pavement. The rest of it was gravel, dry riverbed, flood plain and steep incline. One side of the alleged road was often a cliff. The last half-mile looked impassable because of the severity of the climb, the looseness of the ground, the sharpness of the switchbacks and the lack of guardrails to prevent one from pitching into thin air. I wasnt convinced that a sure-footed mule could make this happen. But the driver didnt hesitate as he revved the engine and threw the truck into low gear. We fishtailed and swerved and hopped our way to the top, blasting past a small church with hundreds of uniformed students in classes both inside and outside the building, past a flat spot big enough for a soccer game (which was perpetual), and finally to the peak, where during the 1970s Baby Doc Duvalier stood and gazed at the falls, declaring it one of Haitis greatest tourist destinations. Surely he got there by helicopter. I had to agree with the dictator on this one, though. The falls are spectacular. They are fed by an underground lake at the top of the mountain, and they burst out every few feet, like so manyHard to get to Haiti: beauty, poverty, potential The Westin Diplomats marinas at the beach resort and golf location provide dockage for the day, overnight or longer.

9March2014 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMWaterfront TimesTraveling Haitis steeproadsisarockyexperience gridlock, where its really difficult to get to, there is something else. Maybe its not the past or the present. Maybe its the future. I think I saw the road headed in that direction.Up closeHow extreme? Rankings are from 1 (not at all) to 4 (very). Remoteness: 3. If by car, which takes more than seven hours. It would be rated 1 if by helicopter, which takes 22 minutes. Creature discomforts: 3. The lack of nice sleeping conditions and hot water is more than made up for by the friendliness and sharing of the people. To be safe, take plenty of water and food. Cellphone reception is spotty (locals say that the cellphone company didnt know that there were so many people living up near the falls, so it built the tower far down the mountain). Take a soccer ball; there are some elite players up there. Physical difficulty: 2. The hardest part is just getting there. If youre in a small vehicle, consider wearing a helmet so you dont bash the person sitting next to you. (Only partly kidding.) The rest is hilly walking nature, hike, explore, lifestyle. as I lay in bed, all I could hear was the falls the greatest white noise ever. I woke up to a breakfast of plain noodles, lettuce and Doritos (extra cheesy), prepared by locals who served us in a community gathering area (concrete slab, metal roof) about 50 feet from the hotel. Just down from there is a community that lost five people to cholera a few days before I got there. A couple of newly plucked chickens lay in a bucket in the corner of the room. Dinner. My fellow guests there were not tourists. They were Haitian doctors and nurses who built a nearby clinic (just across the valley from the falls) with the help of some American volunteers after a census revealed that the communities surrounding the cascade lacked adequate health care. That this stunning attraction remains a well-kept secret was stunning in and of itself. We couldnt stay for the chicken dinner, because there was another hard-to-reach area we wanted to visit. We descended the mountain and headed in another direction; we joined National Route 4, a road that begins at Haitis border with the Dominican Republic. After two more hours of tire-shredding, neck-snapping terrain, we suddenly hit pavement, or at least graded dirt and gravel, and arrived at the coastal city of Belle Anse, population 51,000. The town square is rustic, with touches that felt modern after the cascades: paved streets, electricity, stores, restaurants, office buildings with working toilets and running water, a radio station and a medical clinic with an adjacent cholera-treatment facility. The men and women I met there were young, educated, businessminded and energetic. Within a few hundred feet, though, the road disappears and travelers step back in time. Housing then becomes a combination of wood, cinder block, concrete and tin. All of it is vulnerable during the rainy season as water sweeps from the surrounding mountains to the shore. But it is also reminiscent of the Hawaii of the 1930s. There were cliffs, fishing boats, a beach, a lagoon, even a clich scene of fishermen weaving nets under a cluster of palm trees. Belle Anse embodies the contradictions you find in Haiti. The natural beauty of the beaches stops you dead in your tracks. So does the poverty. So does the potential. Most of the tourists who visit are from the nearby island of Guadeloupe, said the towns mayor, Pierre Mercidieu. His community is less touristy and less developed than much of that island, so people come for the simplicity, he said. Im no dictator, but even I saw potential for more tourism. So I had to ask Mercidieu the obvious question about the only obstacle to attracting visitors: that road. The only other way to get there is by small fishing boat, a 48-mile journey from the closest city, Jacmel. Had the mayor considered making it easier for travelers to get there, and for developers to want to build hotels or resorts? Of course, we want to develop the road, he said in Creole, through an interpreter. It is a national road. But there is a lack of political will on the part of the government, and there arent enough resources. Belle Anse is the most beautiful place in all of Haiti. It would have many more visitors if it had a road. Late last month, Mercidieu met with dozens of government leaders from other surrounding regions, called communes, to create a strategy for pooling their resources and political influence to develop the area. One of the main agenda items was the road. If that forum really comes together, said Christophe Rodrique, another community leader, this region will change socially, politically and in every other dimension. Those are not just my words; those are the dreams of the leaders of this region. But for now they remain dreams rather than solid plans. Mercidieu invited us to stay for lunch and showed us some freshly caught fish in a nearby cooler. Another time, I promised and I really meant it. But my interpreter and I had a few other clinics to visit. We drove farther into the interior of the area to a community that translated from Creole means Singed Cat. There, we ate rice and beans cooked by a lady outside the clinics entrance. We spent the night in the home of a friend of the interpreters in a community called Bleck. There were no screens or coverings on the windows of the house, so instead of hearing the white noise of waterfalls, I heard insects in the room and roosters doing a call and response outside. Around 5 a.m., the motorcycles started. Bleck is a pleasant town, but it wont be in the Come to Haiti to Relax ad campaign. Returning to Port-au-Prince the next day, feeling like a bobblehead doll (that road!), I sensed a moment of tension between the driver and interpreter. Traffic had increased and movement slowed to a crawl. Thousands of people were in the streets, walking home from school, from work, to the market. Unfazed at the seemingly unsafe driving conditions we had experienced for a few days, the two in the front seat became quiet. I saw their veins throb, their heads scanning the scene left to right, as if they were watching a PingPong game. At one intersection where cars, trucks, tap-taps (local taxis), pedestrians and motorcycles all compressed into a knot that looked as if it could be dispersed only by a Big Bang, I heard the interpreter barely, but sternly, whisper, Allez, allez. The driver abruptly downshifted, veered out of his lane and bolted through honking horns and terrified children, driving at top speed onto side streets and then back onto a main street where traffic was moving again. How he did that without killing anyone (including us) was impressive. The interpreter, calm again, turned to me. That intersection is a forbidden area for most NGO vehicles because of so many kidnappings, he said. I didnt like how it was feeling just then. Haiti is its own type of intersection, where past and present collide. But way, way far away from the HAITI FROM PAGE 8 COMESEEUS MARCH 13-16,2014 ATDania Beach Flea Market Mardi Gras Casino Hallandale

The Nature Conservancy website calls coral reefs one of the most threatened marine systems, with scientists estimating that up to 70 percent could be lost by 2050. Floridas coral reefs are a valuable state resource that need protecting, said Kevin Claridge, director of the FDEPs Florida coastal office. Not only for the tourism dollars they bring in or habitat they provide for our fisheries, but also because they are the most bio-diverse habitats in our state. Monty said group members will meet monthly over the next year to review the latest science on southeast Floridas coral reefs and work together to make management recommendations. The initial plan was for the meetings to begin in February, she said. But its been pushed to March. Monty said she didn't want to speculate on what proposals could emerge from the meetings. Thats what the meetings are for, so I wouldnt want to guess, she said. But Im confident that this collaboration of stakeholders will come up with some great ideas. Ultimately, well all benefit by preserving our states reef. About the FDEPs Coral Reef Conservation Program: The Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP) coordinates research and monitoring, develops management strategies, and promotes partnerships to protect the coral reefs, hard bottom communities, and associated reef resources of southeast Florida.

Serving South Florida’s Coastal NeighborhoodsMARCH 2014 YEAR 4 IS SUE 9 Hats off to fishin g ............................................3 Haitis tourism poten tial ................................8 Admiralty Law 5 € Classifieds 17 € Event Calendar 12 € Tide Table 13 € Waypoints 8 DOUGLAS JORDAN Waterfront Times Florida, home to the only barrier reef in the continental U.S., is taking steps to save one of its most valuable resources by getting the community involved in the Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Coral Reef Conservation Program. “When people think of coral reefs in Florida, they tend to think only of the Keys,” said Jamie Monty, manager of the program. “But our reef extends more than 100 miles to the north, all the way to northern Martin County.” Monty said coral reefs are in a state of decline around the world, and that Florida’s reef is no exception. “In southeast Florida, we’re seeing the reef suffering from a variety of things,” Monty said. Some of those things include fishing, diving and other boating activities. Adding to the issue is land-based pollution such as stormwater runoff and sewage and coastal construction. The marine industry and shipping also affect the health of the reef, Monty said. Other factors include “just a lack of awareness on the part of people who use the water for business or pleasure.” To help spread awareness, the FDEP held a kick-off meeting in January for the “Our Florida Reefs Community Working Groups” at Nova Southeastern University’s Center for Excellence in Coral Reef Research campus. Monty said the community planning process for Florida’s coral reefs is the largest project to date by the program. The meeting was sponsored by The Nature Conservancy, hosted by Nova and coordinated with partners from NOAA’s reef conservation program. “This is an exciting time for the future of Florida’s coral reefs, as evident by this large effort and the generous donation of time by working group members,” said Drew Bartlett, deputy secretary of Water Policy and Ecosystem Restoration. Monty said the state has spent the last 10 years in a “data gathering mode,” working with more than 60 partners — including national, state and local agencies, academic institutions, industry and members of the private sector. “The next step is action,” Monty said. “We’ve actually comprised a four-point plan for the year, which begins with community meetings where people learn about our reefs and share ideas. Then, we’ll form working groups, where local representatives develop recommendations for reef management. The groups will then share those recommendations, and finally, we’ll implement a reef management strategy.” She said the members are divided into north and south working groups. The north working group will focus on coral reef resources offshore of Palm Beach and Martin counties, while the south working group will focus on those offshore of Broward and Miami-Dade counties north of Biscayne National Park. That’s great news to Simone Nageon de Lestang, an intern with the Coral Restoration Foundation, a Key Largobased nonprofit conservation organization dedicated to creating offshore nurseries and restoration programs for threatened coral species. “Coral reefs are home to 25 percent of all marine species, and ours is the third largest coral barrier reef system in the world, after the Great Barrier Reef and the Belize Barrier Reef,” Nageon de Lestang said. “And we’ve seen as much as a 90 percent decline in two prominent species, Elkhorn and Staghorn corals.” The Coral Restoration Foundation was started by Florida marine biologist Ken Nedimyer. Over the last decade, Nedimyer and his team have developed new techniques to grow and replace damaged coral, Nageon de Lestang said. “It’s pretty amazing, and the foundation has had a great success rate. Ken actually pioneered a new design for a coral nursery, and designed a coral tree that grows very fast. We’ve planted more than 10,000 new coral, much of it in the Keys.” Group seeks to protect Florida’s fading coral reef Wanted: Calm Dade, Keys residents to catch crocs SEE CORAL REEF | PAGE 14 ARNOLD MARKOWITZ Waterfront Times Who wants to be a crocodile response agent when they grow up? Gee, that’s a lot of raised hands. Seriously, the state of Florida wants to talk with you folks about a part time job so interesting that you won’t mind unpredictable working hours, total lack of standard employment benefits and the requirement to supply your own equipment and vehicles — boat, truck, trailer, heavy duty fishing tackle, ropes, snares, snatch hooks, etc. You also need to reside in southern Miami-Dade County or the upper to middle Keys, because that is where the action is. It can’t wait while you drive down there from Fort Lauderdale. First the duties and qualifications as described by SNAP for short — the Statewide Nuisance Alligator Program: “Agents are responsible for site visits, carcass recoveries, capture and translocations of crocodiles. Experience handling crocodilians preferred but training will be provided. Good customer services skills are a must.” When crocodiles climb out of a canal and into somebody’s yard or pool, car or house — some or all of that — it will be your job to catch that croc and take it away, dead or alive. Why are customer service skills important? For settling the nerves of frantic folks who send for you and for creating trusting relationships with crocodiles that might reasonably mistake you for a threat. You have to decide if the reward, $25 an hour with no set schedule, is worth the risk. That’s a cool thousand in a 40-hour week if you get that much work. You probably won’t, so consider croc work an adventure, not a career. It may embolden you to know that American crocodiles, the South Florida brand, usually are described by experts as shy. That doesn’t mean they are socially awkward wallflowers. It means they are timid, easily scared off. In their own primitive way, they understand that a little bit of fear is healthy because it makes them careful and keeps them safe. Anyone with the ambition to mess with crocodiles should adopt that outlook. Other stuff that successful applicants need to know: Fish and Wildlife (FWC) staff will teach you how to do the job. They’ll also supply what you need — presumably a clipboard, charts and that sort of thing to keep detailed logs of your crocs. After applying, monitor your email daily. If the folks in charge of croc ops at FWC like your application, they will contact you by email. Beware: sometimes FWC email gets diverted to spam folders, so check those too. After initial email exchanges, further review will lead to either rejection or an invitation for an in-person interview. None of that happens fast, so be patient, the FWC warns: “With our upcoming seasonal work schedule we don’t anticipate being able to begin reviewing applications for some time.” The crocs can wait if you can. Everglades superintendent heading west Dan Kimball is retiring after 10 years as dual superintendent of Everglades and Dry Tortugas National Parks. He’ll be guest of honor at a retirement dinner put on by the South Florida National Parks Trust on Friday, March 21, at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in Coral Gables. Then it’s westward ho, to arid Arizona. That’s a radical departure from one of the world’s greatest swamps, but deserts, mountains and cold winters have their own allure. “I went to graduate school at the University of Arizona in Tucson, my wife grew up in Idaho and we lived in Colorado for 30 years. As such, we have a real attachment to the western United States,” Kimball told Waterfront Times. He started his National Park Service career in 1984. Before coming to Florida he was chief of the NPS water resources division in Colorado for 12 years, then acting superintendent of Zion National Park in Utah and was special assistant to the deputy director of the park service in Washington. Kimball’s background in water resources served him well at Everglades, where he helped lead multi-agency SEE EVERGLADES | PAGE 6Coral reefs around the world are in decline, including those in South Florida.

Wally was born Wala Hunahuna, Jr. Yes, really. That name looks Hawaiian, but his tribal ancestors were Catalan. In their traditional lingo, his name means “Absent-Minded Junior.” You can look it up. It also confirms that his father and grandfather were absent-minded and expected the same of Wally. Our fun-poking was gentle because we had learned social sensitivity from the scandalous news about our local pro football team, the Vulgarians. Their vulgar offensive guard, Paskudnyak, had been exposed for demonstrating too vividly the various ways in which the word “offensive” can be applied. Paskudnyak was suspended and universally denounced except by all the other Vulgarians. As a show of support, they’re growing their nose hair long and wearing their helmets inside out until next football season. We fishing-doers didn’t want to make Wally feel bad, at least not bad enough for him to throw his beer to the floor and stomp out of the clubhouse. What if, in a blind rage, he had fallen off the dock and lacerated himself to death by trying to climb the barnacle-infested pilings? That would have spoiled everyone’s day. Anyhow, even the best organized among us could recall at least once forgetting something sort of impor-tant — rods and reels, sunglasses, fishing license, even the boat’s drain plug. You’ve done it too. Don’t lie. We also took it easy on Wally because he had handled the hatless crisis creatively and effectively — an admirable example of grace under pressure. Honest Dave, who fished with Wally that day at the stern of his friend’s canoe, told us the story. Dave’s wife Karen, paddling her kayak, was a witness too. They both work for the government, so we knew the story was true. Wally couldn’t deny it if he wanted to because Dave shot photos. In case you forgot: Hats are important to fishingdoers who may not think about it until their hats are forgotten or blown overboard. A good hat is essential fishing tackle. It shields us from the sun and shades our eyes even if we don’t forget our sunglasses. It deflects our partner’s errant casts and pads our noggins in case he beans us in spite of it. Wally usually keeps his hat in his pickup. He forgot it because he had spilled coffee on it Saturday, rinsed it off and hung it on the back porch to dry. Concentrating on his mental checklist en route to the lake Tuesday morning, he walked right past the hat. He remembered forgetting it while he and Dave prepared to launch the canoe. Neither of them had a spare hat. Wally shuffled through all the stuff in his pickup, looking for a substitute. The only prospect he found was a paper burger bag. He shook out some French fry crumbs, tried it on and saw that it wouldn’t do — too high, too flimsy. Dave tried folding back the edge to reinforce it and reduce volume, but then the bag didn’t fit — too tight. By this point in the narrative, a little crowd was gathering around our table. Some of them had been debating the new Florida regulation that lets charter captains and their crews each keep a limit of fish just like their customers. Dave’s story telling was more interesting.

4 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMMarch2014Waterfront Times “No, wait, not my mom. It’s like fishing with my aunt Yanya. It’s Polish for Jennie. “Karen, look at the babushka,” he called to his wife. “It’s Aunt Yanya!” The wet babushka functioned better that day than the three fishing-doers, who were after butterfly peacock but didn’t see any. The lake water was still cool after a strong cold front, a good alibi for peacock but not for largemouth bass. Each of them caught a few small bass. Karen added a strong Mayan cichlid. Wally did best, catching an above average bass on a carrot-colored streamer fly that I had tied for him. Wally gave me credit for that, but attributed most of his good fortune to the damp babushka, which he now cherishes as a good luck charm. Dave took a picture of Absent Minded Jr. and his bass. They gave it a title, “Babushka with Fishka.” With their permission, I’m publishing it here as a reminder to all of us not to go fishing without a hat, and to bring a babushka just in case. Across the room Cleat Bollard, the club dockmaster, noticed members drifting away from his rope splicing seminar. He lay down his fid and came over too. Dave paused. Suspense was building. We all looked at him and Wally, wondering what was next. I slipped each of them a fresh beer, quietly, so as not to breach the mood. “I didn’t want to drive around searching for a hat store and losing fishing time,” Wally said. “I reckoned the risk of sunstroke at more or less medium. I knew that if I barfed or fainted, my friends would recognize those symptoms of sunstroke and save me. They’re both nurses, you know.” And so (Dave went on) they launched the boats, paddled off and began casting to the shores of islands in the lake. Pretty soon Wally noticed a possible hat substitute that he’d absent-mindedly stashed under the bow seat. It’s a bandana made of some kind of material that holds water and regulates a gradual evaporation rate. You dip it in the lake for a minute or two and tie it around your neck, and repeat that when it dries. I have one of those too. I think it was made by Frogg Toggs. If you do a Google search for “cooling bandana,” you’ll find that and a few other brands and styles. I never imagined mine as a substitute hat, only because I can’t imagine forgetting a hat. Wally can, and experiences like that have taught him to make the best of such a situation. “I got it,” he told Dave. “Watch this.” He soaked the blue bandana in the lake, folded it as a triangle, draped it over his hairy head and tied the corners under his hairy chin. After picking a few whiskers out of the knot, he was good. There was no brim to shade his eyes, but that was the only imperfection. The partners went back to fishing, with Dave stifling laughter back there in the stern. “It feels like fishing with my mom in a babushka,” he half-giggled. Dave, being half Polish, knows babushkas.

And despite many protests, the courts have generally found these agreements to be acceptable and enforceable. Other maritime issues, such as employment injuries, can also have very different time lines for filing suit under maritime law from their land law equivalents. They are usually shorter in time. If such injuries involve government vessels and/or government participation, the time lines may be shorter yet, requiring administrative filing and review well before any case can be presented to the courts. Interestingly, these examples are in contrast to rules regarding general maritime liens, which are usually secret and can follow a vessel virtually forever, regardless of changes in ownership, until expunged or enforced through a court action (talk about an ongoing time line!). So, what is the take away from all this? Well, when it comes to most things maritime, it usually doesn’t pay to procrastinate, at least not initially. Should an incident occur that may have legal consequences, do not delay in seeking advice from a well informed and knowledgable professional in legal maritime matters. Afterwards, you can make your own decision on whether you should take the time to procrastinate. Basically, any delay should be well planned rather than stem from indolence. After all, it is not by coincidence that the motto of the U.S. Coast Guard, the oldest maritime service, is semper paratus — “always prepared.” Oh, and while you’re at it, get insurance before a hurricane appears, and fix your roof before it rains! 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 specific cases or situations. were among those waiting for an opportune time to buy a policy, you are probably too late since few — if any brokers — will be able to sell you a product with an eminent crisis on the way. Procrastination can have consequences. Like insurance, most legal situations tend to have sliding consequences that disfavor procrastination, particularly in the maritime arena. Depending on certain factors, the requirement for a technical response can sometimes be measured in a matter of only a few months, and the understanding of these time lines may not be that straight forward. For example, vessel owners who want to plead a limitation of liability to the federal court (i.e. an attempt to limit a possible maritime claim to the value of the vessel following an incident), they are generally limited to doing so within six months after written notice of an alleged accident. It is a rule that may be known to someone who reviewed the Supplemental Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which generally deals with admiralty issues. However, when it comes to filing certain other maritime actions, not all deadlines are available pursuant to statutes or judicial rules — some are due to contractual agreement — whether you actually realize that you’ve agreed to the contract or not. The primary examples are passenger injury suits. The language in passenger tickets often attempts to limit the ability to file against the vessel owners to one year from the time of an incident. Moreover, these tickets may also contain verbiage requiring written notice to a parent company ADMIRALTY LAW AIR COMPRESSORSYSTEMS for DIVERS Compressed Air Supplies and Equipment, Inc.Specializing in the Diving Industry Fill Whips & Panels/Manifolds  Yokes  Gauges Filters  Hoses  Oils  Air Storage Tanks & Fittings Our Clients include: Dive Resorts & Scuba Shops Yacht Owners & Captains, Divers, Fire Dept.800 OldGriffinRd.,#3PHONE:(954)929-4462Dania, FL33004FAX: (954)929-4463E-MAIL: CompAirSupply@att.netBauerNew Used Supplies Sales Service Procrastination: Results range from unfortunate to tragic Custom Marine Canvas & UpholsteryCreatively Custom Made… Just the Way You Want it in Ways You’ve Never Seen Before!

MARK ERCOLIN Waterfront Times Columnist Sometimes, it’s really hard to get started on a project — or as one of my uncles used to say, “No reason to fix the roof if it ain’t raining!” As you might guess, such calculated procrastination can result in unfortunate consequences. On the other hand, while procrastination is often blamed on laziness or other human vices, there are often understandable reasons for it. Hesitation and reticence can stem from justified financial concerns. After all, few of us want to make a major financial outlay without a complete review and determination that the purchase is absolutely necessary (boat buyers may, of course, disagree). Occasionally, delays can be rewarded by a drop in price or the discovery of a better deal. It is also equally true that unless such delays are part of a well thoughtout strategy, the results can go from unfortunate to tragic. Consider maritime insurance for instance: Technically, especially if you are not carrying a ship’s mortgage, there is no legal requirement for keeping insurance on a vessel. So many people delay acquiring insurance or just “go naked,” as they say, waiting for the proper time or deal. All may go well until hurricane season when someone from the National Weather Service appears on TV with a map showing an intriguing picture of a cycloneshaped icon sitting in the Caribbean. The accompanying “cone of death” is aimed straight at South Florida. If you already have insurance in place, this announcement would come as just another part of life in Florida that you’ve already planned for with provisions. But if you HUNGRY?See page10forGalleyrecipes!

6 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMMarch2014Waterfront Times projects to restore natural freshwater flow that was blocked long ago for agricultural and highway purposes. The latest completed one is a section of Tamiami Trail where the old roadbed was dug out and replaced by a bridge. That lets water from the state conservation areas north of the Trail to flow through to the park For sporfishing, Kimball’s single best achievement was a pole and troll zone to protect the fish-infested shoal in Snake Bight from destructive gouging by boat engine propellers. He welcomed participation by veteran guides and other local experts, who worked with park staff to make rules that all could live with. He leaves Everglades with a much larger job yet undone: a general management plan (GMP) that’s been going through the government mill throughout his tenure here. The latest version is in revision following a round of public hearings that Kimball conducted last year. The plan has hit this stage before and been kicked back by NPS headquarters for being too ambitious and expensive. “We hope to issue a final GMP this summer and a Record of Decision by the end of 2014,” Kimball said, cautious to say “we hope” instead of “we will.” “It’s been a long, long haul, but the Park is poised to complete this important plan this year and address challenging problems facing the Park, like boating management in Florida Bay.” Kimball made a point of recognizing the assistance of fishing guides and others, who are likely to remember him best for being a good listener, taking their complaints and suggestions seriously and often following their advice. “Because of their involvement, the plan represents a much better long-term plan for Park management, providing for resource protection, but also reasonable access,” he said. His replacement, not yet appointed, would be wise to maintain those relationships. The farewell dinner is being planned by the South Florida National Parks Trust, which raises money and EVERGLADES | FROM PAGE 1 makes grants to Everglades, Biscayne and Dry Tortugas National Parks and the Big Cypress Preserve.

Manatee count rising In the future of evolution, a day may come when manatees will be physically able to fill in census questionnaires, for within their mittenish forefins are bone sets remarkably like five-fingered human hands. Until those emerge, manatee census data must be gathered by aerial eyeball observation, which cannot be precise. It’s closest during strong cold fronts, when manatees congregate at warm water locations like power plants. That was the case on Jan. 24 and 27, when airborne state biologists and 20 observers from nine environmental organizations counted 2,317 manatees on the state’s east coast and 2,514 on the west. Total: 4,831, subject to follow-up verification. Those were all they saw. There’s no way to know how many they didn’t see.

Manatee population counted by eyeball observationor 2012 when the sur veys were c alled off because of warm weather. Except for individual markings such as the scars of healed wounds — usually inflicted by motorboat propellers — one manatee looks so much like another that it’s hard to tell them apart. On the upside, unlike schools of fish swimming, manatees that find warm spots when the water’s cold stay at the surface and hold still. An accurate count can be made of all that are visible. “After two winters of above-average temperatures, this year we received several consecutive strong cold fronts that helped to gather manatees at warm-water sites where they could be more easily counted,” said FWC manatee biologist Holly Edwards. Because of weather and other year-to-year variables, the surveys can’t be used for confident population projections in the long term or even to establish a reliable statewide estimate for the present. Still it’s useful for scientists to have an at-least number for comparisons. Knowing where manatees go each year to find warm water when it gets cold helps in deciding where to establish protection zones. “This year’s manatee count is the third highest we have recorded since the first statewide aerial survey in 1991,” said Gil McRae, director of the FWC’s Fish and Wildlife Research Institute. “We are encouraged by the relatively high count, especially given the high number of manatee deaths documented recently.” Documented fatalities last year totaled 829, with curiously high scores of 275 in Lee County (southwest) and 245 in Brevard County (northeast). Through January this year, the same counties had the state’s most fatalities — 12 in Brevard and seven in Lee. The statistics say there were 72 watercraft-related deaths last year, comparing favorably with the average of 88 in the previous five years. Here’s a chart of documented manatee deaths in Florida last year, with causes when that’s known: http://myfwc.com/media/2600491/YearToDate.pdf.

8 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMMarch2014Waterfront Times that nature could be used to Haiti’s advantage for once has taken root again among nonprofits and officials who are seeking to position it as an ecotourism destination. An astute local businessman, hoping to realize Duvalier’s dream a few years ago, built the one-story Hotel Deruisseau on a mesa directly across from the falls. I stayed there, though I would describe it as more of a “sleeping space” than a hotel: The room had a bed, a nightstand and an overhead bulb, all behind a door that didn’t quite clear the bed. There was a shower in the communal bathroom, but no showerhead — just a pipe that poured cold water, like one of the tiny cascades. (Hot water was a luxury that you have to do without.) Electricity from the generator was shut off at 10 p.m. But faucets stuck in the open position. We walked up into the falls, careful to make way for the occasional cow trotting downhill and a boy who appeared to be perhaps 10. At the bottom of the falls is a lush valley that becomes a lake when the spigots are fully loosed in late spring and fall. I discovered the falls while on a reporting trip to chronicle volunteer efforts among Haitians who are organizing their own community service groups. It brought me to this remote pocket of a country whose beauty has been devastated over the years by disasters — natural, economic and political. The earthquake that struck four years ago was a combination of the three, causing billions in damage and thousands of deaths, swiftly followed by a cholera outbreak that has killed thousands more, and a presidential election that led to violent protests. The idea DEAN NELSON The New York Times Syndicate It’s hard to know exactly how many waterfalls there are on the side of the mountain in a remote corner of southeast Haiti. From my vantage point on a nearby slope, I counted at least a dozen, and that was at the end of the dry season last year. The rainy season in the spring, I’d been told, puts the cascade in Cascade Pichon. From a distance, it looks impossible to get to the falls. During the ride there, in a four-wheel-drive Toyota Land Cruiser, it certainly felt impossible. We had traveled for seven hours from Port-au-Prince — and maybe two of those hours were on pavement. The rest of it was gravel, dry riverbed, flood plain and steep incline. One side of the alleged road was often a cliff. The last half-mile looked impassable because of the severity of the climb, the looseness of the ground, the sharpness of the switchbacks and the lack of guardrails to prevent one from pitching into thin air. I wasn’t convinced that a sure-footed mule could make this happen. But the driver didn’t hesitate as he revved the engine and threw the truck into low gear. We fishtailed and swerved and hopped our way to the top, blasting past a small church with hundreds of uniformed students in classes both inside and outside the building, past a flat spot big enough for a soccer game (which was perpetual), and finally to the peak, where during the 1970s Baby Doc Duvalier stood and gazed at the falls, declaring it one of Haiti’s greatest tourist destinations. Surely he got there by helicopter. I had to agree with the dictator on this one, though. The falls are spectacular. They are fed by an underground lake at the top of the mountain, and they burst out every few feet, like so manyHard to get to Haiti: ‘beauty, poverty, potential’ The Westin Diplomats marinas at the beach resort and golf location provide dockage for the day, overnight or longer. € Short term & long term dockage € 30/50/100 amp, water and 3-phase/480v electric for mega yachts € 50 slips, plus face docks in excess of 300 ft € Membership opportunities available with resort amenity access € Day access to resorts pool, beach, golf, spa and restaurants € Complimentary dockage when dining at RIVALS Waterfront Sports Grille and 25% o checkFor information, call Dock Master at (954) 658-2526 or email Charles.campbell@westin.com DOCKAGEDIPLOMAT LANDING 3220 South Ocean Drive, Hollywood DIPLOMAT YACHT CLUB MARINA 500 Diplomat Way, Hallandale Beach SEE HAITI | PAGE 9 WAYPOINTS David Rochkind | The New York TimesWaterfalls at Cascade Pichon.

9March2014 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMWaterfront Times Traveling Haiti’s steeproadsisarockyexperience gridlock, where it’s really difficult to get to, there is something else. Maybe it’s not the past or the present. Maybe it’s the future. I think I saw the road headed in that direction. Up close How extreme? Rankings are from 1 (not at all) to 4 (very). Remoteness: 3. If by car, which takes more than seven hours. It would be rated 1 if by helicopter, which takes 22 minutes. Creature discomforts: 3. The lack of nice sleeping conditions and hot water is more than made up for by the friendliness and sharing of the people. To be safe, take plenty of water and food. Cellphone reception is spotty (locals say that the cellphone company didn’t know that there were so many people living up near the falls, so it built the tower far down the mountain). Take a soccer ball; there are some elite players up there. Physical difficulty: 2. The hardest part is just getting there. If you’re in a small vehicle, consider wearing a helmet so you don’t bash the person sitting next to you. (Only partly kidding.) The rest is hilly walking… nature, hike, explore, lifestyle. as I lay in bed, all I could hear was the falls — the greatest white noise ever. I woke up to a breakfast of plain noodles, lettuce and Doritos (extra cheesy), prepared by locals who served us in a community gathering area (concrete slab, metal roof) about 50 feet from the hotel. Just down from there is a community that lost five people to cholera a few days before I got there. A couple of newly plucked chickens lay in a bucket in the corner of the room. Dinner. My fellow guests there were not tourists. They were Haitian doctors and nurses who built a nearby clinic (just across the valley from the falls) with the help of some American volunteers after a census revealed that the communities surrounding the cascade lacked adequate health care. That this stunning attraction remains a well-kept secret was stunning in and of itself. We couldn’t stay for the chicken dinner, because there was another hard-to-reach area we wanted to visit. We descended the mountain and headed in another direction; we joined National Route 4, a “road” that begins at Haiti’s border with the Dominican Republic. After two more hours of tire-shredding, neck-snapping terrain, we suddenly hit pavement, or at least graded dirt and gravel, and arrived at the coastal city of Belle Anse, population 51,000. The town square is rustic, with touches that felt modern after the cascades: paved streets, electricity, stores, restaurants, office buildings with working toilets and running water, a radio station and a medical clinic with an adjacent cholera-treatment facility. The men and women I met there were young, educated, businessminded and energetic. Within a few hundred feet, though, the road disappears and travelers step back in time. Housing then becomes a combination of wood, cinder block, concrete and tin. All of it is vulnerable during the rainy season as water sweeps from the surrounding mountains to the shore. But it is also reminiscent of the Hawaii of the 1930s. There were cliffs, fishing boats, a beach, a lagoon, even a clich scene of fishermen weaving nets under a cluster of palm trees. Belle Anse embodies the contradictions you find in Haiti. The natural beauty of the beaches stops you dead in your tracks. So does the poverty. So does the potential. Most of the tourists who visit are from the nearby island of Guadeloupe, said the town’s mayor, Pierre Mercidieu. His community is less touristy and less developed than much of that island, so people come for the simplicity, he said. I’m no dictator, but even I saw potential for more tourism. So I had to ask Mercidieu the obvious question about the only obstacle to attracting visitors: that road. The only other way to get there is by small fishing boat, a 48-mile journey from the closest city, Jacmel. Had the mayor considered making it easier for travelers to get there, and for developers to want to build hotels or resorts? “Of course, we want to develop the road,” he said in Creole, through an interpreter. “It is a national road. But there is a lack of political will on the part of the government, and there aren’t enough resources. Belle Anse is the most beautiful place in all of Haiti. It would have many more visitors if it had a road.” Late last month, Mercidieu met with dozens of government leaders from other surrounding regions, called communes, to create a strategy for pooling their resources and political influence to develop the area. One of the main agenda items was the road. “If that forum really comes together,” said Christophe Rodrique, another community leader, “this region will change socially, politically and in every other dimension. Those are not just my words; those are the dreams of the leaders of this region.” But for now they remain dreams rather than solid plans. Mercidieu invited us to stay for lunch and showed us some freshly caught fish in a nearby cooler. “Another time,” I promised — and I really meant it. But my interpreter and I had a few other clinics to visit. We drove farther into the interior of the area to a community that translated from Creole means “Singed Cat.” There, we ate rice and beans cooked by a lady outside the clinic’s entrance. We spent the night in the home of a friend of the interpreter’s in a community called Bleck. There were no screens or coverings on the windows of the house, so instead of hearing the white noise of waterfalls, I heard insects in the room and roosters doing a call and response outside. Around 5 a.m., the motorcycles started. Bleck is a pleasant town, but it won’t be in the “Come to Haiti to Relax” ad campaign. Returning to Port-au-Prince the next day, feeling like a bobblehead doll (that road!), I sensed a moment of tension between the driver and interpreter. Traffic had increased and movement slowed to a crawl. Thousands of people were in the streets, walking home from school, from work, to the market. Unfazed at the seemingly unsafe driving conditions we had experienced for a few days, the two in the front seat became quiet. I saw their veins throb, their heads scanning the scene left to right, as if they were watching a PingPong game. At one intersection where cars, trucks, “tap-taps” (local taxis), pedestrians and motorcycles all compressed into a knot that looked as if it could be dispersed only by a Big Bang, I heard the interpreter barely, but sternly, whisper, “Allez, allez.” The driver abruptly downshifted, veered out of his lane and bolted through honking horns and terrified children, driving at top speed onto side streets and then back onto a main street where traffic was moving again. How he did that without killing anyone (including us) was impressive. The interpreter, calm again, turned to me. “That intersection is a forbidden area for most NGO vehicles because of so many kidnappings,” he said. “I didn’t like how it was feeling just then.” Haiti is its own type of intersection, where past and present collide. But way, way far away from the HAITI FROM PAGE 8 COMESEEUS MARCH 13-16,2014 AT…Dania Beach Flea Market  Mardi Gras Casino  Hallandale

10 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMMarch2014Waterfront Times Florida’s coastal waters provide world-renowned seafood year round — few as delicious as fresh grouper. The grouper with roasted corn and peppers recipe pairs fresh Florida bell peppers and sweet corn with roasted grouper. This fun, healthy and fast recipe serves up to four of your seafood-loving family or friends. Be sure to look for the Fresh From Florida label when at the grocery store. Grouper with Roasted Corn and Peppers2 tablespoons olive oil 1 cup red bell pepper, chopped 1 cup green bell pepper, chopped 2 cups fresh corn kernels 1 cup onion, diced 1 teaspoon salt, divided 1 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper, divided 1 teaspoon dried thyme, divided 4 6-ounce grouper fillets 1/2 cup french-fried onion rings, crushed Heat oven to 450 degrees. Combine 1 tablespoon of olive oil with the red and green bell peppers, corn, onion and 1/2 teaspoon each of the salt, pepper, and thyme in a large ovenproof pan. Roast mixture in the oven until the corn and peppers start to brown, about 12 minutes, stirring twice. Rub the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil over both sides of the fillets and season with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, pepper, and thyme. Top with crushed onion rings. Remove the roasting pan from the oven; spread corn-andpepper mixture to the sides of the pan. Place fillets in the center of the pan and cook 10 minutes until opaque in the center. Snap Bean and Tomato Saut Florida is known as the “winter salad bowl” and the snap bean and tomato saut brings together some of the state’s best cold-weather produce. Add Florida snap beans, tomatoes and green peppers for a unique side for any meal. Don’t forget to top it off with fresh grated Parmesan cheese and chopped parsley. Be sure to look for the Fresh From Florida label when at the grocery store. 2 pounds fresh snap beans 3 large tomatoes, seeded and chopped 3 cloves garlic, minced 2 onions finely chopped 1 cup olive oil 1 green pepper, sliced thin 1/2 bunch fresh parsley, finely chopped 1/4 cup water Kosher salt to taste Fresh ground pepper to taste Wash and rinse the snap beans, then cut off the tip of each end. In a tall-sided pot, saut the onions in olive oil until they start to turn translucent. Stir in the garlic and continue cooking a few minutes more. Add the snap beans and green pepper and cook for another five minutes. Add the tomatoes, water, salt and pepper. Bring liquid in pan to a boil, reduce heat and cover. Simmer for 5 minutes or until desired tenderness. Serve warm as a side dish. Top this dish with fresh grated Parmesan cheese and finely chopped parsley.

The Nature Conservancy website calls coral reefs one of the most threatened marine systems, with scientists estimating that up to 70 percent could be lost by 2050. “Florida’s coral reefs are a valuable state resource that need protecting,” said Kevin Claridge, director of the FDEPs Florida coastal office. “Not only for the tourism dollars they bring in or habitat they provide for our fisheries, but also because they are the most bio-diverse habitats in our state.” Monty said group members will meet monthly over the next year to review the latest science on southeast Florida’s coral reefs and work together to make management recommendations. “The initial plan was for the meetings to begin in February,” she said. “But it’s been pushed to March.” Monty said she didn't want to speculate on what proposals could emerge from the meetings. “That’s what the meetings are for, so I wouldn’t want to guess,” she said. “But I’m confident that this collaboration of stakeholders will come up with some great ideas. Ultimately, we’ll all benefit by preserving our state’s reef.” About the FDEP’s Coral Reef Conservation Program: The Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP) coordinates research and monitoring, develops management strategies, and promotes partnerships to protect the coral reefs, hard bottom communities, and associated reef resources of southeast Florida.
