As we mentioned yesterday, we’re switching gears a little in the Canoe Project and putting some focus on another city’s canal system: Miami’s neighbor, Fort Lauderdale.

Yesterday evening at Scotty’s Landing, the WLRN Miami Herald News staff celebrated the end of the Canoe Project and welcomed Terence Cantarella back on dry land. WLRN Miami Herald News anchor Arianna Prothero led a Q & A with Terence about his journey.

Danna Contreras doesn’t like the new FCAT.

The sophomore at Booker T. Washington High School in Miami emigrated from Colombia three years ago.

She wears thick, pink-rimmed glasses and she squints a lot. She says the new computerized version is harder to take.

“I think I am better with paper, not on the computer because sometimes my eyes hurt,” she said.

That’s not the only reason she’s worried about her reading score.

“I have difficulty speaking English and the vocabulary is really hard,” she said.

Considering the amount of time we here at WLRN Miami Herald News have been talking about canals recently, due to our immersion into the Canoe Project, Arnold Markowitz, a listener, offered to us some information about an interesting characteristic of Miami canals: they have some pretty great fishing!

WLRN Miami Herald News reporter, Trina Sargalski, recently chatted with Arnold Markowitz, a local fishing expert here in Miami, about why he loves fishing in Miami’s canals.

Most South Florida residents don’t have the luxury of flying to the Amazon when they have an urge for adventure.  Some might go to Shark Valley or drive up north for some good old-fashioned hiking, but if you are stuck in the city where can you get your fix?

Oars Away!

Terence Cantarella, WLRN’s intrepid waterway explorer, has begun his four day journey through the city’s canals this morning.

Bringing Clarity To Miami’s Murky Canals

Apr 12, 2012

This Monday when WLRN announced that contributor Terence Cantarella will embark on a historic voyage next Monday to circumnavigate Miami’s canal systems via canoe, we got a flood of feedback from our audience. Mostly urban legends.  Oral tradition and fear of the unknown  have long informed some of us that creepy things are hiding in the murky waters.  For a city that prides itself on being on the water, it seems that water is limited to Miami Beach for some.
