Expect slow commutes to and from work and limited ID checks in downtown Miami for rest of week
For Miami's downtown workers, heading home Monday afternoon may prove to be a little more awkward than arriving for work. The main problem: The exit ramp to Interstate 95 at the Knight Center will be closed to all but delegates and their escorts.
Commuters who usually use that ramp would be advised to head slightly north to the Northwest Eighth Street ramp west of Government Center, or travel south along Miami Avenue to Southeast Eighth Street, then east to Brickell Avenue before heading to the I-95 entrance at U.S. 1.
Only delegates and their escorts will be allowed to cross the Brickell Avenue Bridge.

Michael Hecht's research will travel to Mars in 2007.
Hecht, a physicist with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, will be presenting the details of the Phoenix mission to Mars at 7:30 p.m. in the CUB Auditorium. He is involved in the designing of a new Thermal and Electrical Conductivity Probe that will be included in the mission. The device will measure the content of soils.
Hecht's presentation is part of the Gaylon Campbell Lecture, created to help further the understanding of environmental soil science. Decagon Devices, a local manufacturer of biophysical-research instrumentation and Campbell Scientific, Inc, helped sponsor the event.

Watching the Andy Griffith special this past week was a treat. It may very well prove to be the last time Griffith, Ron Howard, Don Knotts and Jim Nabors come together for such a nostalgic walk back to Mayberry. Hope not.
Like a lot of other folks, I loved the Andy Griffith Show, particularly while Barney was still a part of the show and Opie was a young 'un. It said a lot about small town Americana and family relationships, between a father and son, between the two of them and a special aunt, and relationships between friends.
Vacations for the whole family
"We realized that 60 (percent) to 80 percent of people travel with their animals," says Teller, 32, who opened her store four years ago. "A lot of people want to do fun, outdoorsy things but they don't know what to do or where to go. Since we have a lot of contacts here at the store, one thing just led to another."
In July, she and fianc Rick Frankel put together their first dog/owner adventure package: a camping trip for 12 people and 14 dogs to Steamboat Springs. The two-night trip included a daylong tubing adventure down the Yampa River.
"We tubed. The dogs swam. It was just the best time!" says Teller.
