Southeast Florida Forecast

August 20, 2021
From Captain Jonathan Earhart

20.-22. August

Coastal

The fishing this week was excellent for trophy breeders snook. Catching 40 ″ plus snook is very common at this time of year. Large baits on heavy equipment are the key to successful trophy catching. Quick image and resuscitation are essential for a healthy publication. Tarpon fishing is getting hotter. Large tarpons feed on crabs and mullets this week. Fish weigh between 50 and 120 pounds, so heavy rigs and larger gear are recommended. Some big jacks also run around so you’ll have a big head tied in case you can throw a plug in the way with a big jack!

Offshore

Cobia is close to offshore reefs and wrecks. Live bait or 3 oz cobia jigs will work great this week if you can find the fish. Sailing was phenomenal. We’re seeing loads of free jumping fish around 90-150 this week. Live bait fish with dredges ensure plenty of action! Bonito, mahi, kingfish, tuna and amberjacks are expected when slow trolling or drift fishing for sailfish. Bottom fishing was a hit or miss this week. Mutton snapper, trails, mangroves, triggerfish, vermilion snapper, and amberjack bite well when the current is moving at a reasonable pace. 6 to 10 ounces of lead with chicken rigs and cut bait or long leaders with live white bait will get many desirable bites. When bottom fishing, drop a sardine to the surface for extra action. Add guidewires to your surface rigs if you want to bring kingfish home for the smoker.

Key West has played a strategic role in American and world history, brought to life in unique attractions, and its homes testify to a time in the 19th century when it was one of the richest areas in the country.

Unique things to do in Key West, miamicuratedHarry S. Truman Little White House

History buffs cannot miss the Harry S. Truman Little White House, a former naval base whose building has been converted into a winter residence for President Harry S. Truman. The residence, now a historic site and museum, has been preserved as it was then, including the bar where he drank his daily shot of bourbon and played poker with his red, white and blue bedroom. It was reported that Harry enjoyed a shot of bourbon and orange juice and referred to it as a “heart starter” in the morning.

Subsequent notable visitors included everyone from Thomas Edison to former President John F. Kennedy who was here during the Cuban Missile Crisis, Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton. Even if you don’t like presidential memorabilia, you’ll enjoy the gift shop with plaques and t-shirts with Truman’s iconic sayings, dishes, books, and more. Guided tours are offered. We were lucky enough to get Whiskey Rick who, in addition to tours here, also does a number of themed private tours including a Harry Truman Sip N Stroll full of anecdotes and stops at popular watering spots.

What to Expect at Miami Dolphins Tailgate

This Sunday’s matchup with the Buffalo Bills at Hard Rock Stadium marks the return of the Miami Dolphins’ tailgate. While every NFL city has its own version of a great hatchback party, not all hatchbacks are created equal. For example, no Buffalo Bills tailgate would be complete without one of their fans jumping off a pickup truck onto a table.

It’s wild We don’t understand. But hey, everyone for himself! You, Bills fans. Literally hit yourself out.

While you won’t find many Dolphins fans at the risk of paralysis by the tailgate on Sunday, you will find some things that can only be found in Miami. If you’ve never been to a Dolphins tailgate, here are ten things to expect.

“Esa Morena” by DJ Laz plays on repeat

Imagine the looks you’d get if you played DJ Laz’s “Esa Morena” on a New England Patriots tailgate. You’d be practically promoting your desire to fight a guy named Tommy.

I support

Miami New Times

Local

Community

journalism

Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of the New Times free.

Some things just feel right in Miami (and probably nowhere else in the country), and DJ Laz music is one of those things. Nobody in Minnesota tries to hear DJ Laz’s music before a Vikings game. This is a very special track that can only be found on a Dolphins game.

People who play dominoes

In Buffalo, people jump on burning folding tables. Abuelos sit with them in Miami and play dominoes. We are simply built differently in the 305.

Only in Miami do you find people spreading dominoes across a table instead of playing cards. Playing dominoes is an extreme thing in Miami, and at Dolphins’ tailgate parties, it’s literally the pre-game.

The Chinese box

Cooking a whole pig in La Caja China isn’t exactly a Miami thing, but Miami may be the only city in the NFL where you can find one by the tailgate.

While everyone else is cooking chicken wings in a hot air fryer or grilling hot dogs, Miami Dolphins fans out here are seasoning a whole pig with their bare hands. Why? Because that’s how the party ends in Miami. Save your tender chicken platter for kids’ birthday parties, this is big boy stuff.

Cafecito

Coffee? What is coffee We drink cafecito on the tailgate of Miami Dolphins, and the darker the better.

Having the taste of Cuban espresso on the palette before binge drinking is practically a requirement on Dolphins’ tailgates. If you don’t drink it, you’ll fucking sniff it.

Weekend Warrior Miami football fans

There are a few times during a football season that the Hurricanes play at Hard Rock Stadium on Saturday and the Dolphins play there just hours later.

Lots of fans visit you on Saturday, head home for a quick nap, and come back to the parking lot around the stadium on Sunday to do it all over again.

Then they kind of go to work on Monday. And they say that Miami sports fans don’t care!

Cosplay

Have you always wanted to dress up like a pirate who stands up for the dolphins when he is not looking for prey on the troubled seas? Do you love dressing up like Hello Kitty and drinking Bud Light in a gravel parking lot? Well god damn it, I just got the tailgate for you!

Miami Dolphins fans come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes these shapes and sizes are mixed up and combined into ensembles that don’t quite make sense. It makes people-watching by a Dolphins tailgate worth the price of admission in itself.

Football shirts from past years

On each NFL tailgate, you’ll find a selection of jerseys worn by fans that honor players who won’t be on the field. You can also find colors and styles that are no longer used.

But on a Miami Dolphins tailgate, that fact is made worse by the ridiculousness of the jerseys the team once wore: highlighter orange jerseys, the many pantone aqua tones, all the players that have come and gone over the years are.

Nobody wears a current jersey on a Dolphins tailgate. The vibe is not dissimilar to a minor league baseball team. This is what happens when your team is constantly changing uniforms and star players.

Hard seltzer

You might not have heard it before, but tough selters are the wave. That said, they are cool I think. I read that once on Twitter.

Pound for pound, you won’t find more tough selters anywhere in the world than on a Miami Dolphins tailgate. This is an unscientific study, but it seems correct. Everyone in Miami wants to stay beautiful, but nobody wants to stop drinking. Hard selters seem to be that loophole for Miami Dolphin fans.

Pub subscriptions

Yes, we get chic on our Dolphins tailgates with La Caja China, but we’re also downstairs to toss a couple of Publix subs in a cooler and call it a day too. Whether we’re going to the beach, a park, or a Miami Dolphins binge drinking party, there’s no better value for money than a pub submarine. It’s solid, portable, and easily accessible.

Snap a shot every time you see a pub sub on the Dolphin’s tailgate this Sunday. You won’t make it into the game. Your friends will cram you in the back seat of an Uber and you’ll be in bed at half time.

Will post pictures of everyone who shot me a beer on the horns on the tailgate! Let’s go buffalo! pic.twitter.com/sS77RoS7yQ

Opposing fans do strange things

You can recognize the non-Dolphins fan by a Dolphins tailgate without even looking at the jersey they’re wearing. It is obvious. They do something very different from Miami, like eat meatloaf and drink moonlight.

Dolphins games are more often a mix of fans because so few people grew up and stayed (or at least stayed Dolphins fans) in Miami, which means other Tailgaters are likely to be loyal to a different team the Dolphins play.

Every fifth table on a Dolphins tailgate seems like an out-of-town adventure. It’s like a very strange and drunk farmers market. But that’s also what makes an NFL tailgate so special.

What to Expect at Miami Dolphins Tailgate

This Sunday’s matchup with the Buffalo Bills at Hard Rock Stadium marks the return of the Miami Dolphins’ tailgate. While every NFL city has its own version of a great hatchback party, not all hatchbacks are created equal. For example, no Buffalo Bills tailgate would be complete without one of their fans jumping off a pickup truck onto a table.

It’s wild We don’t understand. But hey, everyone for himself! You, Bills fans. Literally hit yourself out.

While you won’t find many Dolphins fans at the risk of paralysis by the tailgate on Sunday, you will find some things that can only be found in Miami. If you’ve never been to a Dolphins tailgate, here are ten things to expect.

“Esa Morena” by DJ Laz plays on repeat

Imagine the looks you’d get if you played DJ Laz’s “Esa Morena” on a New England Patriots tailgate. You’d be practically promoting your desire to fight a guy named Tommy.

I support

Miami New Times

Local

Community

journalism

Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of the New Times free.

Some things just feel right in Miami (and probably nowhere else in the country), and DJ Laz music is one of those things. Nobody in Minnesota tries to hear DJ Laz’s music before a Vikings game. This is a very special track that can only be found on a Dolphins game.

People who play dominoes

In Buffalo, people jump on burning folding tables. Abuelos sit with them in Miami and play dominoes. We are simply built differently in the 305.

Only in Miami do you find people spreading dominoes across a table instead of playing cards. Playing dominoes is an extreme thing in Miami, and at Dolphins’ tailgate parties, it’s literally the pre-game.

The Chinese box

Cooking a whole pig in La Caja China isn’t exactly a Miami thing, but Miami may be the only city in the NFL where you can find one by the tailgate.

While everyone else is cooking chicken wings in a hot air fryer or grilling hot dogs, Miami Dolphins fans out here are seasoning a whole pig with their bare hands. Why? Because that’s how the party ends in Miami. Save your tender chicken platter for kids’ birthday parties, this is big boy stuff.

Cafecito

Coffee? What is coffee We drink cafecito on the tailgate of Miami Dolphins, and the darker the better.

Having the taste of Cuban espresso on the palette before binge drinking is practically a requirement on Dolphins’ tailgates. If you don’t drink it, you’ll fucking sniff it.

Weekend Warrior Miami football fans

There are a few times during a football season that the Hurricanes play at Hard Rock Stadium on Saturday and the Dolphins play there just hours later.

Lots of fans visit you on Saturday, head home for a quick nap, and come back to the parking lot around the stadium on Sunday to do it all over again.

Then they kind of go to work on Monday. And they say that Miami sports fans don’t care!

Cosplay

Have you always wanted to dress up like a pirate who stands up for the dolphins when he is not looking for prey on the troubled seas? Do you love dressing up like Hello Kitty and drinking Bud Light in a gravel parking lot? Well god damn it, I just got the tailgate for you!

Miami Dolphins fans come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes these shapes and sizes are mixed up and combined into ensembles that don’t quite make sense. It makes people-watching by a Dolphins tailgate worth the price of admission in itself.

Football shirts from past years

On each NFL tailgate, you’ll find a selection of jerseys worn by fans that honor players who won’t be on the field. You can also find colors and styles that are no longer used.

But on a Miami Dolphins tailgate, that fact is made worse by the ridiculousness of the jerseys the team once wore: highlighter orange jerseys, the many pantone aqua tones, all the players that have come and gone over the years are.

Nobody wears a current jersey on a Dolphins tailgate. The vibe is not dissimilar to a minor league baseball team. This is what happens when your team is constantly changing uniforms and star players.

Hard seltzer

You might not have heard it before, but tough selters are the wave. That said, they are cool I think. I read that once on Twitter.

Pound for pound, you won’t find more tough selters anywhere in the world than on a Miami Dolphins tailgate. This is an unscientific study, but it seems correct. Everyone in Miami wants to stay beautiful, but nobody wants to stop drinking. Hard selters seem to be that loophole for Miami Dolphin fans.

Pub subscriptions

Yes, we get chic on our Dolphins tailgates with La Caja China, but we’re also downstairs to toss a couple of Publix subs in a cooler and call it a day too. Whether we’re going to the beach, a park, or a Miami Dolphins binge drinking party, there’s no better value for money than a pub submarine. It’s solid, portable, and easily accessible.

Snap a shot every time you see a pub sub on the Dolphin’s tailgate this Sunday. You won’t make it into the game. Your friends will cram you in the back seat of an Uber and you’ll be in bed at half time.

Will post pictures of everyone who shot me a beer on the horns on the tailgate! Let’s go buffalo! pic.twitter.com/sS77RoS7yQ

Opposing fans do strange things

You can recognize the non-Dolphins fan by a Dolphins tailgate without even looking at the jersey they’re wearing. It is obvious. They do something very different from Miami, like eat meatloaf and drink moonlight.

Dolphins games are more often a mix of fans because so few people grew up and stayed (or at least stayed Dolphins fans) in Miami, which means other Tailgaters are likely to be loyal to a different team the Dolphins play.

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Florida. – For those of us who want to be more scared than if someone offers us a granola bar as a Halloween candy * chill * (that’s actually pretty scary), a popular South Florida Halloween attraction is returning for the community to haunt.

The House of Horror Haunted Carnival returns to the Miami International Mall for the first time since 2018.

From September 30th through Halloween night, October 31st, those entering the carnival can explore a “vast abandoned department store that has been overhauled and claimed”.

And this year is set to be creepier and bigger than ever. For the first time since its inaugural year, Carnival features four unique haunted experiences that “you’ll regret ever stepping through the doors”.

The first experience is called “Mall Mayhem” where you will see “insane employees and demonic mannequins”. Then ticket holders can enter an infested urban jungle called the Toxic Apocalypse (but be careful not to touch anything to get poisoned).

advertisement

Then those who still have the nerve can check in at the “1455 Asylum”, where “the patients monitor the delivery of nervous breakdowns”. Finally, experience the “Scare Studios” where the creepy becomes virtual.

Plus, the attraction offers unlimited carnival rides, food, and carnival games at the House of Horror halfway there.

Alcohol is available throughout Carnival for people aged 21 and over with a valid ID.

More information on House of Horror’s Haunted Carnival can be found here.

The Racquet Center in Boca Raton received the Outstanding Facility Award - Boca Raton's most trusted news source

The Racquet Center in Boca Raton was recognized by the United States Tennis Association (USTA) with the Outstanding Facility Award 2021 in the category Public Courts: Large Tennis Center (11 or more courts). The center is one of only 25 tennis facilities in the United States and its territories recognized by the USTA, the national governing body of tennis and recognized leaders in promoting and developing the growth of the sport in the United States

The annual award recognizes outstanding achievements in the construction and / or renovation of tennis facilities in three categories: public spaces, private institutions and educational institutions. The Racquet Center, formerly known as The Swim & Racquet Club, underwent a major renovation in 2018. The improvements to the facility included an expansion of the existing tennis center, new changing rooms and bathrooms, a professional tennis shop, meeting rooms, covered seating, raised parking spaces and more.

The USTA assessed the award-winning facilities according to the following criteria: overall layout and adaptation to the location; Excellence of the field surface and lights; easy maintenance; Accommodation for players, spectators and press / officials; Aesthetics; Graphics, including the use of signs and landscaping; Amenities such as casual seating for spectators, dining, and social areas; and facility participation in USTA programs.

“On behalf of our great team, I am humble and excited to receive this fantastic award. The Racquet Center brings the community together on a safe and beautiful tennis court. This award is a great testament to the services and facilities the Greater Boca Raton Beach & Park District and the city provide as they work together for all citizens, “said Michael J. Kalvort, Recreation Services Director, Boca Raton City. “As autumn approaches and the heat subsides, I’d like to invite all of our Boca athletes to visit the Racquet Center, play a match, and keep our hearts healthy.”

The Racquet Center hosts an average of 300 guests per day and features 26 Har Tru courts, tennis clinics, junior programs, ball machines, lessons from USPTA professionals, 24-hour stringing, and night games. Located at 21618 St. Andrews Boulevard, the center is jointly managed by the City of Boca Raton and the Greater Boca Raton Beach & Park District.

Southeast Florida Forecast

August 20, 2021
From Captain Jonathan Earhart

20.-22. August

Coastal

The fishing this week was excellent for trophy breeders snook. Catching 40 ″ plus snook is very common at this time of year. Large baits on heavy equipment are the key to successful trophy catching. Quick image and resuscitation are essential for a healthy publication. Tarpon fishing is getting hotter. Large tarpons feed on crabs and mullets this week. Fish weigh between 50 and 120 pounds, so heavy rigs and larger gear are recommended. Some big jacks also run around so you’ll have a big head tied in case you can throw a plug in the way with a big jack!

Offshore

Cobia is close to offshore reefs and wrecks. Live bait or 3 oz cobia jigs will work great this week if you can find the fish. Sailing was phenomenal. We’re seeing loads of free jumping fish around 90-150 this week. Live bait fish with dredges ensure plenty of action! Bonito, mahi, kingfish, tuna and amberjacks are expected when slow trolling or drift fishing for sailfish. Bottom fishing was a hit or miss this week. Mutton snapper, trails, mangroves, triggerfish, vermilion snapper, and amberjack bite well when the current is moving at a reasonable pace. 6 to 10 ounces of lead with chicken rigs and cut bait or long leaders with live white bait will get many desirable bites. When bottom fishing, drop a sardine to the surface for extra action. Add guidewires to your surface rigs if you want to bring kingfish home for the smoker.

The interactive, educational and Instagrammable Audubon Experience was created by designer Sasha Bikoff and features floor-to-ceiling artwork that pays homage to John James Audubon, who portrayed over 22 life-size bird species in the Florida Keys. Guests can pose in vintage cages with the flowers and lifelike birds hanging from the ceiling, or marvel at the holograms of hummingbirds, pigeons, terns and herons that seem to fly overhead. painted wallpapers feel three-dimensional.

The gallery with antique and hand-colored original Audubon engravings and lithographs as well as modern limited editions of Audubon’s masterpieces

There is also a gallery selling antique and hand-colored original Audubon engravings and lithographs, as well as modern limited editions of his masterpieces, and a shop with appealing gift items. A special Miami connection is remarkable. The Mitchell Wolfson Family Foundation saved the house from destruction and continues to help with its maintenance and operations.

What to Expect at Miami Dolphins Tailgate

This Sunday’s matchup with the Buffalo Bills at Hard Rock Stadium marks the return of the Miami Dolphins’ tailgate. While every NFL city has its own version of a great hatchback party, not all hatchbacks are created equal. For example, no Buffalo Bills tailgate would be complete without one of their fans jumping off a pickup truck onto a table.

It’s wild We don’t understand. But hey, everyone for himself! You, Bills fans. Literally hit yourself out.

While you won’t find many Dolphins fans at the risk of paralysis by the tailgate on Sunday, you will find some things that can only be found in Miami. If you’ve never been to a Dolphins tailgate, here are ten things to expect.

“Esa Morena” by DJ Laz plays on repeat

Imagine the looks you’d get if you played DJ Laz’s “Esa Morena” on a New England Patriots tailgate. You’d be practically promoting your desire to fight a guy named Tommy.

Some things just feel right in Miami (and probably nowhere else in the country), and DJ Laz music is one of those things. Nobody in Minnesota tries to hear DJ Laz’s music before a Vikings game. This is a very special track that can only be found on a Dolphins game.

People who play dominoes

In Buffalo, people jump on burning folding tables. Abuelos sit with them in Miami and play dominoes. We are simply built differently in the 305.

Only in Miami do you find people spreading dominoes across a table instead of playing cards. Playing dominoes is an extreme thing in Miami, and at Dolphins’ tailgate parties, it’s literally the pre-game.

The Chinese box

Cooking a whole pig in La Caja China isn’t exactly a Miami thing, but Miami may be the only city in the NFL where you can find one by the tailgate.

While everyone else is cooking chicken wings in a hot air fryer or grilling hot dogs, Miami Dolphins fans out here are seasoning a whole pig with their bare hands. Why? Because that’s how the party ends in Miami. Save your tender chicken platter for kids’ birthday parties, this is big boy stuff.

Cafecito

Coffee? What is coffee We drink cafecito on the tailgate of Miami Dolphins, and the darker the better.

Having the taste of Cuban espresso on the palette before binge drinking is practically a requirement on Dolphins’ tailgates. If you don’t drink it, you’ll fucking sniff it.

Weekend Warrior Miami football fans

There are a few times during a football season that the Hurricanes play at Hard Rock Stadium on Saturday and the Dolphins play there just hours later.

Lots of fans visit you on Saturday, head home for a quick nap, and come back to the parking lot around the stadium on Sunday to do it all over again.

Then they kind of go to work on Monday. And they say that Miami sports fans don’t care!

Cosplay

Have you always wanted to dress up like a pirate who stands up for the dolphins when he is not looking for prey on the troubled seas? Do you love dressing up like Hello Kitty and drinking Bud Light in a gravel parking lot? Well god damn it, I just got the tailgate for you!

Miami Dolphins fans come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes these shapes and sizes are mixed up and combined into ensembles that don’t quite make sense. It makes people-watching by a Dolphins tailgate worth the price of admission in itself.

Football shirts from past years

On each NFL tailgate, you’ll find a selection of jerseys worn by fans that honor players who won’t be on the field. You can also find colors and styles that are no longer used.

But on a Miami Dolphins tailgate, that fact is made worse by the ridiculousness of the jerseys the team once wore: highlighter orange jerseys, the many pantone aqua tones, all the players that have come and gone over the years are.

Nobody wears a current jersey on a Dolphins tailgate. The vibe is not dissimilar to a minor league baseball team. This is what happens when your team is constantly changing uniforms and star players.

Hard seltzer

You might not have heard it before, but tough selters are the wave. That said, they are cool I think. I read that once on Twitter.

Pound for pound, you won’t find more tough selters anywhere in the world than on a Miami Dolphins tailgate. This is an unscientific study, but it seems correct. Everyone in Miami wants to stay beautiful, but nobody wants to stop drinking. Hard selters seem to be that loophole for Miami Dolphin fans.

Pub subscriptions

Yes, we get chic on our Dolphins tailgates with La Caja China, but we’re also downstairs to toss a couple of Publix subs in a cooler and call it a day too. Whether we’re going to the beach, a park, or a Miami Dolphins binge drinking party, there’s no better value for money than a pub submarine. It’s solid, portable, and easily accessible.

Snap a shot every time you see a pub sub on the Dolphin’s tailgate this Sunday. You won’t make it into the game. Your friends will cram you in the back seat of an Uber and you’ll be in bed at half time.

Opposing fans do strange things

You can recognize the non-Dolphins fan by a Dolphins tailgate without even looking at the jersey they’re wearing. It is obvious. They do something very different from Miami, like eat meatloaf and drink moonlight.

Dolphins games are more often a mix of fans because so few people grew up and stayed (or at least stayed Dolphins fans) in Miami, which means other Tailgaters are likely to be loyal to a different team the Dolphins play.

Every fifth table on a Dolphins tailgate seems like an out-of-town adventure. It’s like a very strange and drunk farmers market. But that’s also what makes an NFL tailgate so special.

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Florida. – For those of us who want to be more scared than if someone offers us a granola bar as a Halloween candy * chill * (that’s actually pretty scary), a popular South Florida Halloween attraction is returning for the community to haunt.

The House of Horror Haunted Carnival returns to the Miami International Mall for the first time since 2018.

From September 30th through Halloween night, October 31st, those entering the carnival can explore a “vast abandoned department store that has been overhauled and claimed”.

And this year is set to be creepier and bigger than ever. For the first time since its inaugural year, Carnival features four unique haunted experiences that “you’ll regret ever stepping through the doors”.

The first experience is called “Mall Mayhem” where you will see “insane employees and demonic mannequins”. Then ticket holders can enter an infested urban jungle called the Toxic Apocalypse (but be careful not to touch anything to get poisoned).

advertisement

Then those who still have the nerve can check in at the “1455 Asylum”, where “the patients monitor the delivery of nervous breakdowns”. Finally, experience the “Scare Studios” where the creepy becomes virtual.

Plus, the attraction offers unlimited carnival rides, food, and carnival games at the House of Horror halfway there.

Alcohol is available throughout Carnival for people aged 21 and over with a valid ID.

More information on House of Horror’s Haunted Carnival can be found here.

The Racquet Center in Boca Raton received the Outstanding Facility Award - Boca Raton's most trusted news source

The Racquet Center in Boca Raton was recognized by the United States Tennis Association (USTA) with the Outstanding Facility Award 2021 in the category Public Courts: Large Tennis Center (11 or more courts). The center is one of only 25 tennis facilities in the United States and its territories recognized by the USTA, the national governing body of tennis and recognized leaders in promoting and developing the growth of the sport in the United States

The annual award recognizes outstanding achievements in the construction and / or renovation of tennis facilities in three categories: public spaces, private institutions and educational institutions. The Racquet Center, formerly known as The Swim & Racquet Club, underwent a major renovation in 2018. The improvements to the facility included an expansion of the existing tennis center, new changing rooms and bathrooms, a professional tennis shop, meeting rooms, covered seating, raised parking spaces and more.

The USTA assessed the award-winning facilities according to the following criteria: overall layout and adaptation to the location; Excellence of the field surface and lights; easy maintenance; Accommodation for players, spectators and press / officials; Aesthetics; Graphics, including the use of signs and landscaping; Amenities such as casual seating for spectators, dining, and social areas; and facility participation in USTA programs.

“On behalf of our great team, I am humble and excited to receive this fantastic award. The Racquet Center brings the community together on a safe and beautiful tennis court. This award is a great testament to the services and facilities the Greater Boca Raton Beach & Park District and the city provide as they work together for all citizens, “said Michael J. Kalvort, Recreation Services Director, Boca Raton City. “As autumn approaches and the heat subsides, I’d like to invite all of our Boca athletes to visit the Racquet Center, play a match, and keep our hearts healthy.”

The Racquet Center hosts an average of 300 guests per day and features 26 Har Tru courts, tennis clinics, junior programs, ball machines, lessons from USPTA professionals, 24-hour stringing, and night games. Located at 21618 St. Andrews Boulevard, the center is jointly managed by the City of Boca Raton and the Greater Boca Raton Beach & Park District.

Brightline will activate a second rail line north of West Palm this week

JUPITER – Northern Palm Beach County’s drivers should be prepared to stop at Brightline level crossings this week as the company activates its second rail line.

Brightline will open the second track along the 13 miles long railroad in the county, meaning crews will mark drivers at 17 level crossings from West Palm Beach to Jupiter by 6pm Friday.

Drivers and pedestrians have to expect longer waiting times and when the track is used for freight traffic on both tracks.

In a press release, the company said it “reminds the public, pedestrians, motorists and cyclists to make safe decisions near trains and intersections, obey all traffic rules around intersections, and never stop on the tracks.”

The passenger rail company, which will one day connect Miami with the Orlando region, is busy laying a second railroad line through northern Palm Beach County and running test trains on local track beds. Brightline announced in August that its expansion to Orlando is 60% complete and will be completed by the end of 2022.

The Brightline service has been suspended since the beginning of 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Trains between West Palm Beach and Miami will resume in November, and the company plans to roll out a shuttle and rideshare service to make it easier for passengers to get to and from train stations.

The company also plans to hire private drivers to staff cars, shuttles, and in some cases, electric golf carts to connect the drivers to their local stations.

Level crossings in North Palm Beach County

The following level crossings are affected by the work this week:

Jupiter

Palm Beach Gardens

Lake park

Riviera beach

West Palm Beach

This week’s work follows a summer of brightline construction and closures.

Brightline closed the Loxahatchee River Bridge in Jupiter for two days in early August and did not allow boats to pass under it while crews worked on the 95-year-old bridge.

Brightline is now building new stations in Boca Raton and Aventura. The Boca Raton train station is scheduled to open in the summer of 2022.

JFK Medical Center’s ECMO program is a Silver Level ELSO Award Recipient

September 14, 2021– The extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) program of the JFK Medical Center has received the Silver Level ELSO Award from the Extracorporeal Life Support Organization (ELSO). Earning the Silver Level Award means our program has been recognized as being on the road to excellence in extracorporeal life support.

ELSO is an international non-profit consortium of health centers and individuals dedicated to developing, evaluating and improving extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and other innovative therapies to support failing organ systems in infants, children and adults.

JFK Medical Center offers ECMO to support failing organ systems in adults. ECMO is one of the most advanced forms of life support available to patients with acute cardiovascular failure. ECMO is a temporary mechanical support system that pumps a patient’s blood outside the body and oxygenates it so that the heart and lungs have time to rest.

“We are honored to have received such a prestigious award for critical care and life support equipment and training for our patients,” said Waqas Ghumman, medical director of the Advanced Heart Care Center at JFK Medical Center. “Our services reflect our commitment to the advancement of health care, which we continuously strive for.”

JFK Medical Center was the first Palm Beach County hospital to offer this life-saving treatment to critically ill patients. Our ECMO team consists of surgeons, intensive care physicians, respiratory therapists, nurses and perfusion physicians.

Coast Guard rescues 4 Mexican fishermen off Key West

KEY WEST, Florida (AP) – US Coast Guard crews rescued four men after their fishing boat was knocked out off Key West.

The fishermen told rescue teams that they left Cancun, Mexico, on August 29, in a boat called the Aqua Limo II. It broke off from Key West and they had no food, water or fuel, the Coast Guard said in a press release on Wednesday.

The Coast Guard towed the boat and took the men to Key West Station. You have been examined by medical personnel.

A flight crew from US Customs and Border Protection Air and Marine Operations discovered the boat shortly after noon on Tuesday and notified the Coast Guard.

It was located approximately 63 miles (101 kilometers) southwest of Key West.

“It’s always good to see happy ending during a search and rescue while strengthening our relationship with our neighboring countries,” said Collin Snovell, Petty Officer 1st Class. “We’re just excited to bring the four men back to their families.”

“It was an unfinished work, but it was still Hall of Fame worthy and how special is that? ”reflected former Miami Heat and Toronto Raptors star Chris Bosh as he prepared for the Naismith last weekend Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame to be inducted.

“Unfinished” is an interesting word to describe a career that has resulted in two NBA championships, four finals as part of the Big Three of the Heat, an Olympic gold medal and eleven All Star selections in 13 seasons. However, it is accurate.

Bosh had to retire from the sport when he suffered the blood clots again in 2016 at the age of only 31, which made the doctors and the Heat organization “fear for my life” if he continued to play. While Bosh tells the Guardian that he made peace with the harrowing end of a glamorous career, that award also brings a degree.

“In my opinion I needed more time, but I think it was good enough,” says Bosh, now 37. “I strive to do so much more, but to cement my work as a player in the hall of fame? It’s crazy that I could reach these heights so quickly. “

A tenacious and formidable defender, a shrewd and often explosive offensive talent with an incredible knack for catching up with critical rebounds (including one of the most famous in NBA history), Bosh has diversified considerably since retiring. He learned to program, play the guitar, produce music and most recently wrote a book of advice for young athletes. He continues to be a vocal and compassionate advocate of social justice. Will Hall of Fame status give him an even bigger platform for the future?

“I’m still figuring out what this platform is all about, you know?” He says. “I have always believed in exercising your right to use your voice, and if you see something that is not right, talk about it. I’ve always wanted to encourage people to get these messages across in a positive way. Now it is still trying to figure out how to speak as an elder statesman on these issues that appeal to me. “

In his 2021 book Letters To A Young Athlete, Bosh seeks to guide them (“and any person with a goal”) through the difficulties he has faced, combined with the wisdom he has as a self-proclaimed “elderly statesman.” “The NBA has acquired. At a time when young athletes have also assumed more responsibility as advocates with the strength to bring about social change, the most important thing is to find a balance, says Bosh.

“This has long been part of the athlete experience; since the Cleveland Summit in 1967 and the Mexico City Games in 1968. This is nothing new, but definitely a new space, ”he says.

“Lots of people, including Colin Kaepernick, could take a lot of heat. We learned how things are perceived and none of the athletes let themselves be stopped from expressing themselves. It’s such a great thing that everyone has and knows their voice. The Milwaukee Bucks decision not to play was a strong message.

“The future is about finding that balance, about finding the things that are important to you but knowing how to use your voice and get your job done at the same time. Understand where you stand as a person and what you want to achieve. “

Outside the professional realm, further changes are underway for young athletes; namely, the ability for NCAA student athletes to receive monetary compensation for the use of their name, image, and likeness. It’s the first step towards an environment where college stars can be paid to play for their school. Bosh has long believed in this development and says this is a great first step for young people who aren’t necessarily going to see the riches of professional sport.

He says: “The new ‘Name, Image and Likeness’ rules will open up a whole market of opportunity for the field hockey player or gymnast who has devoted four years of her life. Sure, she’s got a degree, but man, that was a lot of time and it would be nice to have a little head start, you know?

“It will definitely help college football players too because it’s simple math. There are seven rounds in the NFL draft. For example, you could be the best running back anyone has ever seen in Utah State and you won’t even sniff the NFL. You are arguably the 10th best running back in the world at this level and you may not even get accepted onto an NFL training team.

“It is important that the person can leverage their leverage when they have it. It puts the power in the hands of the athlete and there is no better time than now. “

Will the new rules make it more difficult for college players to keep track of what will later win when they make it into the pro game? Could access to the rewards at a younger age have other adverse effects?

“It wouldn’t have affected me,” says Bosh. “When I was 19, I had no idea about money. Even when I got drafted and bought my first car, I didn’t know what to get. I’ve had friends who said, ‘yo, you should get yourself a Ferrari.’ I just wanted something that I could fit in and hit the gym!

“It is a completely new responsibility for our student athletes to find their way in these waters. There will be some sharks for sure, but hopefully people can join these young athletes on their next ventures.

“We always had a saying at the Heat: Let’s keep the main thing the main thing. It’s about being successful, it’s not about how many followers you have. It’s about the message, it’s not about the comment section. It’s not about how much money you make, it’s about your happiness and that you wake up and strive for something to get better every day.

Regarding the heat, Bosh says the tensions that developed after retiring have eased and calls his current relationship with the team “phenomenal”. His # 1 jersey was retired from Miami in 2019 and Heat President Pat Riley (along with former teammate and rebound recipient Ray Allen) presented it in Springfield, Massachusetts on Saturday night.

“They will always be a family,” he says. “Business can be difficult at times. Once upon a time, it was tough because they couldn’t talk to me and I couldn’t talk to them. I still wanted to play and they feared for my life.

“Both sides have always kept it professional and I think both sides got what they wanted. As soon as I was released by them after the decision they had to make and I had to make them [to retire], we were right back in conversation. “

Bosh has been on the team more in recent years, but talks about returning to basketball or organizing the heat in a new role are premature, he says.

“I have communicated that coaching is not in my near future. I’m not saying no, but right now my children are very young and we put everything into them. There are other things that I strive for.

“I always keep a close eye on the game, I have people who give me my film, I have high-level coaches who ask me questions. It’s a great thing, it’s a privilege and hopefully one day we’ll see what chance it can turn out to be. At the moment I’m just ‘Dad’. “

However, on Saturday it was the Chris Bosh Basketball Hall of Fame Class of 2021.

How to quickly soften butter for baking

Why it matters. Many cake and biscuit recipes are based on the creaming method, which involves whipping fat and then fat and sugar lightly and fluffy. This process uses air, and sugar is particularly efficient at introducing and locking air into the fat (which is often butter, but can also be shortening). “If you keep the fat cool and beat the fat alone and the fat-sugar mixture long enough to create huge amounts of fine air bubbles, this method creates a light, well-ventilated cake,” says Shirley Corriher in BakeWise: The How and why of successful baking. ”(While many biscuits also use the cream method, Corriher says that it is not quite as important as cake to successful biscuits).

Fans of actor and filmmaker Kevin Smith – who brought us the Clerks and Jay and Silent Bob franchises and their fictional fast food restaurant Mooby’s – can now visit the store with the restaurant’s own touring pop-up, which is now in Delray Beach is open, experience it for yourself.

As the largest of the three concepts in the Firestone Garage, Winker’s Diner offers home-style cooking in a relaxed atmosphere. Designed as an upscale version of the 1950s Woolworth lunches, the space is outfitted with blue-green benches and a U-shaped bar where diners can enjoy deli-meets-diner dishes, including pastrami on rye, a grilled cheese with French Onions, and a prime rib that looks like it could support a family of four. There is also a full bar and a DJ plays music all night. And which diner would be complete without dessert? Grutman has given nostalgia a whole new meaning with sweet treats like his lime milkshakes and Italian rainbow biscuit cake. Open from Sunday to Thursday from 5pm to 11pm, Friday and Saturday from 5pm to midnight.

True to the diner ethos, Chug’s serves breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week with an exclusive selection of breakfast items available until the end. Don’t miss Chug’s signature products like Pastelito Papi’s famous pastelitos, a cast iron pancake slowly cooked in clarified butter, and the muffuletta-inspired Cuban sandwich. Brand new must-try dishes include the foie gras peanut butter and jelly buñuelo, as well as medianoche pierogi. Company pastry chef Devin Braddock serves freshly baked Cuban bread.
