A Florida boater was ordered to forfeit his boat and serve one year’s probation for killing a manatee near Merritt Island.

In February, Joseph Miata, Jr., 62, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges for speeding through the Sykes Creek Manatee Refuge last summer and killing a female manatee who was nursing a ten-month-old calf. The case marks Florida’s first conviction for striking and killing a manatee in the 40 years since the Endangered Species Act was passed.

Yacht Club Burns to Ground

A beloved Rhode Island yacht club was destroyed by a fire in January. Although investigators do not know what caused the 102-year-old Edgewood Yacht Club in Cranston to go up in flames during a blizzard, they do not believe it was foul play. The building stood on pilings overlooking Narragansett Bay, which made the blaze difficult to fight from land, so fireboats battled the flames from the water. The club’s building, which was built in 1908 after the former building burnt down, was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.
