The Anchorage lost five souls to Hurricane Katrina, Bud (Buddy) House, John Nye, and Johns three dogs.
Bud reportedly wanted to die on his boat at the Anchorage. I did not know Bud, so there is little more I can say.
I was friends with John, and am saddened by his death. He would still be alive had he not been intimidated by City harassment and protected his boat behind the spoil islands.
The attached letter to Marinas Manager Steve Bogner is my salute to John.
Bogner never responded to my letter, nor was the Miami Herald interested in the whole story of Katrina. Through dinnerkey.com a bit more of their story is told.
In Memory Of John Nye & Bud House

Hmmm, I kind of thought the dispute was that Bogner committed manslaughter by using police powers to intimidate people into foregoing their right to safe harbor during Hurricane Katrina.
Instead the article makes John out to be some fringe criminal lunatic - and leaves out entirely that the money found on John was an inheritance his brother left him. I wrote to the reporter about the real issues, but evidently he didn't think it was newsworthy.
