Tuesday Briefing: Domestic Violence Task Force, Extra Deputies, Flagler Beach Blueprint, Heat Index to 105

| July 11, 2017

It was on this day in 1804 that Aaron Burr killed Alexander Hamilton in a duel in Weehawken, N.J., across from Manhattan. In 'War and Peace,' Tolstoi wrote: ' If you are going to fight a duel, and you make a will and write affectionate letters to your parents, and if you think you may be killed, you are a fool and are lost for certain. But go with the firm intention of killing your man as quickly and surely as possible, and then all will be right, as our bear huntsman at Kostroma used to tell me. 'Everyone fears a bear,' he says, 'but when you see one your fear's all gone, and your only thought is not to let him get away!' And that's how it is with me.'

Today’s Briefing: Quick Links


henry david thoreau quotes“I sailed from Fair Haven last evening as gently and steadily as the clouds sail through the atmosphere. The wind came blowing blithely from the southwest fields, and stepped into the folds of our sail like a winged horse, pulling with a strong and steady impulse. The sail bends gently to the breeze, as swells some generous impulse of the heart, and anon flutters and flaps with a kind of human suspense. I could watch the motions of a sail forever, they are so rich and full of meaning. I watch the play of its pulse, as if it were my own blood beating there. The varying temperature of distant atmospheres is graduated on its scale. It is a free, buoyant creature, the bauble of the heavens and the earth. A gay pastime the air plays with it. If it swells and tugs, it is because the sun lays his windy finger on it. The breeze it plays with has been outdoors so long. So thin is it, and yet so full of life; so noiseless when it labors hardest, so noisy and impatient when least serviceable.^ So am I blown on by God’s breath, so flutter and flap, and fill gently out with the breeze.”

–Henry David Thoreau, from his Journals, June 30, 1840. This week (on Wednesday) marks Thoreau’s 200th birth anniversary.

He will be speaking about the plans of The Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) to release draft Amendment 3 (i.e. the Menhaden Amendment) for public comment the first week of August and finalize the rule in November. This rule would be a major precedent, as it could put in place an ecosystem-based approach to managing the biggest fishery on the U.S. East Coast. Cameron is looking to better the odds of success for strong public support at hearings and in written comments by “front-loading” as much outreach as possible to recreation fishermen and other stakeholders on the FL east coast prior to early August.
