Four Miami men are taking a page from the Bible.  According to the “Miami Herald,” Rodolfo Almira and three friends have begun to build a replica of Noah’s Ark.  Apparently, Almira was inspired by the images of animals in need following Hurricane Katrina.  Following measurements laid out in the Bible, Almira and his three buddies set out to make the ark a reality.  In the six months since they’ve started, the foursome have managed to erect the three-story ship’s lower deck.  But the project hasn’t been without its setbacks.  Almira has been slapped with building code violations.  The group is also running short of money and Almira estimates the ark could cost a total of one-point-five million dollars.  When the project is complete, Almira hopes it will contain a museum as well as small zoo.
