Are 32 rapidly moving speed trains necessary to cross the moveable bridge over the Loxahatchee River?  The people at All Aboard Florida (Florida East Coast Industries) rapid train service seem to think so.  Based on the anticipated number of trains per day between Miami and Orlando, All Aboard Florida wishes to provide hourly service starting in the early morning hours and ending in the late evening to meet the anticipated demand by tourists, locals and business travelers.

The addition of 32 passenger trains, to the existing freight trains, that raise and lower the railway bridge daily could cause a bit of boating back up on the Loxahatchee River.  The railway bridge lowers for about 12 minutes each time a freight train crosses – generally at night.  The…

Michael Allen became the first ever wire-to-wire winner of the Allianz Championship Sunday when he outlasted Duffy Waldorf on the second playoff hole at the Old Course at Broken Sound Country Club in Boca Raton.
