Publisher’s Letter SUMMER OF ’09 The memorable events in our history resonate for decades because they connect us to each other through the past, present and future that we share. In 1969, we watched the ﬁrst man walk on the moon and we knew that what had seemed impossible the day before was now possible. Millions looked to the future with new hope. The euphoria of that ﬁrst step did not just belong to the astronauts, but to all of us, to any one of us who could remember our ﬁrst solo bicycle ride or any other milestone accomplishment. Was that step, was that bicycle ride a miracle—somehow outside the natural order of the world? Probably not, but it sure felt like it. July 20, 1969 was 40 years ago. Today, many of us have telephones with more computing power than NASA had on the day they launched Apollo 11. But technical accomplishments have not stopped war, ended hunger or recession, or repaired our broken health care system. Yet there is reason to hope. We elected our ﬁrst African-American president, a reality many of us did not expect to witness in our own lifetimes. In the summer of ‘69, the reality we shared changed. Let’s hope that 40 years from now we say the same about the summer of ‘09.

FishTalesDerrick and the Bonitos There are world record ﬁsh, but most people don’t know that state records exist for many species. Derrick Jaradi caught the new Florida state record Atlantic bonito by landing the 6-pound 8-ounce ﬁsh in February. The record was veriﬁed just recently. For avid ﬁsherman, this size bonito may seem small for local waters, but this was the Atlantic bonito—not the much more common striped bonito. The Atlantic bonito usually inhabits much colder water, but a cold current swept down and the ﬁsh came along for the ride. Derrick went out with his home-made butterﬂy jigs in his 12-foot john boat alone to a wreck in about 150 feet of water. He was approximately one mile from the Boca Raton inlet. “If you look at the picture when it was ﬁrst landed, the ﬁsh almost has stripe patterns similar to a wahoo, which I thought I had. I was almost disappointed when I got it to the boat and it wasn’t a wahoo. That’s until I got to the boat ramp and people were telling me that it was not a usual catch around here.” Derrick checked online ,and sure enough, it was eligible for the state record.
FlashBackThe Famed Miami Mansion You may know Casa Casuarina as the legendary Versace Mansion on Miami Beach. The home was built in 1930 by architect, philanthropist, author and political reformer Alden Freeman as homage to the oldest existing house in the western hemisphere, the “Alcazar de Colon” in Santo Domingo. Freeman chose to use it as inspiration because of his life-long veneration of Christopher Columbus—the Alcazar was home to his son Diego in 1510. Casa Casuarina is a three-story structure, operated as an apartment house, with a Spanish-style inner courtyard and 22BY KIM TURNER apartments. It even contains an original brick from the Alcazar. In 1937, after Freeman’s death, Casa Casuarina was bought by Jacques Amsterdam, who renamed it “The Amsterdam Palace.” Once again, it was operated as an apartment house whose
