Every Thanksgiving week since 1991, a group of hardy souls from elementary-school age to octogenarians have embarked on a one-of-a-kind, nine-day hiking adventure circling Lake Okeechobee.
The Jichi Fishing team had 18 releases at the end of the two-day 2013 Sailfish Kickoff tournament to win the event Saturday.
Boaters, anglers and divers are reminded that three public hearings will be held this week on the revised draft alternatives for Biscayne National Parks general management plan. The plan is aimed at guiding park activities over the next 15-20 years. Meetings will be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday at Newman Alumni Center at the University of Miami, 6200 San Amaro Dr., Coral Gables; Tuesday at Florida City city hall, 404 West Palm Ave.; and Wednesday at Holiday Inn Key Largo, 99700 Overseas Highway.
