One more comment about the Florida State Park closures. (See previous entry below for the entire list of 22 parks facing closures.)
Egmont Key is a historic site, with the lighthouse, several building from Fort Dade (1890s) and the concrete endicott batteries. Also brick streets. It is being turned over to US Fish and Wildlife. Not good for Fort Dade, because USFW does not do historic preservation. It is not part of their mission. Nothing against them, I just don't see how they will work to preserve it--I don't know of any F&W sites that have historical structures that they preserve like these. I can't imagine that they will want to spend money on it anyway, since everyone is strapped for money. It is passing the white elephant along to another gov't agency, and they are probably not wanting it either.
