Happy Thanksgiving week. Time to kick back a bit from the hustle and bustle. Tuesday should see Good ol slop o chop with the winds increasing to 15-20 out of the East. The models hint of that glancing blow swell with West winds on Friday. The odds are low so don't get too excited. If this were to occur you would need to drive at least to the Treasure coast. PR looks like it will get plenty of swell from this monster low but it's just too far out in the Atlantic for us. Still worth keeping an eye on. Good idea to check the Buoys on Turkey day.

FL GOVERNOR PRESENTS KELLY SLATER WITH CRUCIAL BEACH PROTECTION BILL
Landmark Legislation Was Secured By The Surfrider Foundation
Cocoa Beach, FL (November 13, 2007) – On Tuesday, Florida Governor Charlie Crist presented a signed copy of Senate Bill 1472 to eight-time world surfing champion Kelly Slater. The presentation took place at an event celebrating Slater’s appointment to the Governor’s Council for Physical Fitness.
“Here in Florida, Surfrider Foundation has been extending itself beyond the surf community,” said Kelly Slater. “They’re not only looking out for the concerns of surfers but everyone that enjoys the ocean.”

Personal message here from TJ. As folks know, I'm pretty passionate about politics and beach projects. Here in Miami Beach there is currently a very BIG breakwater and sand pumping project going on as well as a run-off election to decide the City's next Mayor and Commission.
I’ve come to find that Commission candidate Deede Weithorn understands the folly of the current breakwater and sand pumping project while the other candidate does not. She's earned my vote and I hope you'll consider giving her yours to. Early voting for the run-off starts this coming weekend 9am-7pm at Miami Beach City Hall. You can also call Deede's campaign (305-725-5706) and they'll shack you up with an absentee ballot if you can't make it to the polls on Nov. 20th.
Run-off elections are very low-low turnout so our community has a chance to put someone in office who'll listen when we've got something to say. That's worth taking the time to GO VOTE!
