should do the fishing. Hats and lawn chairs are
recommended. The pier sells large amounts and variety of
baits, and rents a limited amount.of tackle, but tournament
participants can bring their own bait and tackle.

Nesting habitat for endangered sea turtles at John U.
Lloyd Beach State Recreation Area may be lost because of
delays to the proposed beach renourishment project for
that area. The endangered Green Sea Turtles and the
threatened Loggerhead Sea Turtles that nest at the John
U. Lloyd Park area may never get the chance this summer
because of a petition filed by the American Littoral
Society. Broward County's plan to renourish 1.5 miles of
beach with 500,000 yards of rock-free sand has been put
on hold bya last minute petition by the American Littoral
Society. The Broward County.Commission, last week,
awarded the bid to Henry DuBois' Sons Company to
rebuild the critically eroded beach,
Presently, the popular park is severely eroded and a:
six-foot cliff exists which would prohibit sea turtles from
seeking safe nesting habitat. Lou Fisher, marine biologist
with the Environmental Quality Control Board, who
administers the county's sea turtle program stated "John
U. Lloyd Beach is one of the prime Green Sea Turtle
nesting habitats in Broward County. Even if a sea turtle
could scale the scarp (cliff), the beach is so narrow that
there is extremely limited dry beach between the high
water line and the vegetation for the turtle to nest."
Fisher reported that an average of 150 nests are laid
within the Park boundaries each year.
The American Littoral Society (ALS) filed a petition
with the Department of Environmental Regulation
requesting a public hearing on the project. The ALS
contends that the renourishment is not in the public
interest and that the project could damage adjacent coral
reefs. Stephen Higgins, engineer with the Erosion'
Prevention District, remarked that "If saving the only
State beach in Broward County, which attracts over
500,000 visitors per year is not in the public interest,
then I don't know what is." Higgins added that a recent
study by Dr. Richard Dodge of Nova University on the
growth rate of corals, concluded "... in general, Broward
County beach renourishment projects have had minor or no
influence on currently living off-shore corals."
If a motion, filed by Broward County with the Division
of Administrative Hearings in Tallahassee, is successful,
the project could still be completed in time for the peak sea
turtle nesting season in July. The Department of

Environmental Regulation permit is the final permit to be

along with the Corps of Engineers. The $4.7 million
project will be funded 70% by the Federal Government and
30% by the State of Florida.
Thomas L. Sullivan
Broward County Env ironmental Quality Control Board
In the wake of a ruling by Florida State Division of
Administrative Hearings Officer Linda Rigot to dismiss
the American Littoral Society's Petition for
Administrative Hearing on the John Lloyd Park beach
renourishment project, the Society's Coral Reef Taskforce
announced that it will continue to formally oppose the
issuance of federal permits for the controversial Broward
The beach extension project calls for the dredging and
placing of 500,000 cubic yards of sand on 1.5 miles of
beach in the park. The Society's petition sought to block
state permit approval of the project on the'grounds that it
would adversely impact endangered turtle nesting
grounds, violate state standards for turbidity and
biological integrity in an Outstanding Florida Water, and
adversely affect the conservation of coral communities and
marine natural resources.
"Our petition was dismissed on purely technical legal
grounds related to how the Society's name was worded in
the petition," said Alexander Stone. The actual
environmental issues raised in our petition were never
brought up and continue to be unanswered.
The American Littoral Society has formally requested
that the Army Corps of Engineers hold a Public Hearing
before making its federal permitting decision on the 1.5
mile beach renourishment application. We are continuing
our fight to protect Broward's coral habitat. If necessary,
we will take the issue to federal court. We will not sit back
and allow nearshore soft coral communities to be buried
unnecessarily and offshore patch reefs to be severely
impacted by turbidity and sedimentation."

you can get it. Also, it should be higher than thewaterline;
following seas can really pound against the transom and

Congress goes to the boat show
While the Miami International Boat Show was getting
underway last month, the Coast Guard Subcommittee of
the U.S. House of Representatives was getting a
first-hand view of recreational boating by holding a hearing
on recreational boating safety next door in the Miami Beach
City Council chambers.
The subcommittee heard the testimony, of witnesses
about current federal and state efforts in recreational
boating safety and the effectiveness of programs included
in a federal trust fund for aquatic resources. The panel
addressed questions related to boating safety education,
law enforcement, alcohol and drug abuse on the water,
safety problems caused by "fast boats" and personal
water craft such as jet-skis, boat theft and the
cooperation between federal and state agencies in search
and rescue operations.
With the Coast Guard suffering major budget cuts and
some thirty 30 USCG stations to be shut down or
curtailed, there will be a significant reduction in patrols,
the Congressmen were reminded by Mike Sciulla with the
Boat Owners Association of the United States. That
would have a significant impact on boating safety, Sciulla
Responded Committee Chairman Earl Hutto (D-FL): "I
can assure you that many of us in Congress are very
concerned about these reductions, and I have scheduled a
Coast Guard Subcommittee hearing with Admiral Paul
Yost, the Commandant of the Coast Guard."
Other witnesses at the hearing included Florida
Attorney General Bob Butterworth, State Senator Tom
McPherson and representatives from the Coast Guard,
Florida Marine Patrol, City of Miami Beach, the Coast
Guard Auxiliary and the National Transportation Safety
Boat operator's licensing was also discussed. "Simple
licensing does not eliminate the carnage on our highways.
Those who choose to ignore the law cause a majority of the
accidents and are usually repeat offenders, with or
without licenses," testified Commodore Lewis M. Crowe of
the St. Petersburg Yacht Club and spokesman for the
Florida Council of Yacht Clubs at the hearing.
When the hearing-turned to personal emergency
flotation devices, (PFD's) Wayne Williams, President of
the National Transportation Safety Association and
Director of Nova university's Institute for Survival
Technology suggested, "A return to basics. These devices
exist, and are required, to save lives in the water. Other
considerations must not be allowed to compromise that
After taking in the boat show, the Congressmen
returned to Washington to report to the full House
Committee on Merchant Marine and Fisheries.
Customs grace period ends for small boats
Small-boat skippers who ignore U.S. Customs
checkpoints after leaving foreign waters can now be fined
$5,000 for a first offense, $10,000 the second time and
the loss of their vessel in either case..
Since December 15th, when Customs announced new
check-in rules for boaters entering U.S. waters in south
Florida (see Waterfront News, January 1988, page 6),
over one-quarter of those boats have failed to report in
with Customs, estimates Michael Sheehan, a spokesman for
the federal agency.
Customs agents were giving out warnings till the grace
period ended February 19th. Now, any boat involved-in a
violation is subject to seizure under the new rule, which is
designed to stop smugglers from bringing drugs into the
country on small pleasure craft.
Customs defines a small boat as weighing under five
tons. Other regulations apply to larger vessels.
Skippers leaving foreign waters for destinations in
eastern Florida from Sebastian Inlet south to Key West
must immediately report to one of 14 Customs stations
along the coast. There is a special telephone at each station
connecting the boater with a Customs agent who will ask
some routine questions. The agent will inform the boater to
either go on to his destination or wait for further action by

There are 8,773 marinas in the U.S., along with 17,793
dealers, 357 production boat builders and 1,989 trailer,
accessory and engine manufacturers, according to
"America's Boating Business," a annual report
published by the National Marine Manufacturers
Association: In 1987, Florida accounted for 1,266 of the
country's marinas (14.4%), 2,037 dealers (11.4%), 79
production boat builders (22.1%) and 216 trailer,
accessory and engine manufacturers (10.9%). Florida
ranks first in all categories except "trailer accessory and
engine manufacturers, where California's 234 firms,
outnumbered the 216 in Florida. Nationwide new boat sales
increased 9.8% in 1987, to $16.5 billion, a 14% dollar
increase, said the report.
There are indications that the Florida Department of
Natural Resources will request an increase in boat
registration fees by 60%, says Van Snider of the Marine
Industries Association of South Florida. Fees have not been
raised since 1970. "Boating industry representatives from
all over Florida agree to a 60% increase since we have said
all along that safety on our waters can be improved by law
enforcement's presence on our waters," stated Snider.
A national drunk boat operator law went into effect
earlier this year. The U.S. Coast Guard has set standards
and rules crafted to monitor, control and reduce alcohol
and drug use in recreational vessel operation. It allows
Coast Guard personnel (under Chapter 33 to Title 46,
U.S. Code) to terminate the use of certain vessels when

Waterfront memorial to space shuttle dedicated
by Jean Gomez
The first phase of a unique memorial by Greater
Miamians to the astronauts of Challenger Seven was
dedicated January 28 at the southwest corner of Bayfront
Park on Biscayne Boulevard.
The anniversary date of the Challenger Seven tragedy,
the marker dedication was attended by former astronaut
James Lovell, and former television newsman Ralph Renick,
chairman of the sponsoring Challenger Seven Memorial
Also attending were famed designer Isamu Noguchi,
who fashioned a triangular marker of Vermont granite
inscribed with the names of the crew members and a verse
by poet Michael McClure. The project's second phase, a
monument by Noguchi will be a double helix sculpture
soaring and winding 100 feet high, to be completed and
installed this April.
The brief, solemn dedication program was led by

The eighth annual Bounty-of the-Sea Seafood and

visitors, family-oriented fun and seafood from south
Florida. Visitors will enjoy a dynamic fashion show with
major boat manufacturers. .
New Revolutionary equipment for the handicapped
involving physical therapy and sports will be
demonstrated, and diving destinations, as well as resorts
will entice visitors with give-always and quality packages.
The Miami Chowder and Key Lime Pie Competition will
afford discriminating palates examples of these-well known
south Florida delicacies.
A film festival featuring some of the best underwater
footage by renowned underwater filmmakers and lecturers
will take place on both days. There will be an arts and
crafts show, children's workshops and games, as well as
costume characters, a limbo contest and live island music
throughout the two-day festival.

requested a "missing man" formation flyover by aircraft
from Homestead Air Force Base at 11:39 a.m., the exact
moment of the 1986 spacecraft disaster.
Renick reported that more than $160,000 in cash, in -
kind services and materials has been raised toward the
cost of the monument, but another $60,000 remained
"We hope the dedication ceremonies will stir memories
of individuals, corporate and institutional donors so that
funds will be fully subscribed to complete the memorial,"
Used boat show comes to Miami Beach
On March 25, 26, and 27 the Miami Beach Marina docks
and grounds will be packed with used boats for sale by
their present owners, by brokers and dealers. Boaters will
also be selling their used marine gear at booths.
"Miami has needed a well-run Used Boat Show for a
long time, and [this show's producers] have a proven track
record in Newport and in Annapolis where their shows have
been running successfully for the past fourteen years,"
said Miami Beach Marina's general partner, Irwin Mason.
"We are expecting the show here to be just as successful."
Show manager Charlotte Johnson described how this
sell-it-yourself show works, "Sellers pay for space in the
show based on the size of their boats. There is no
commission taken when the boat is sold."
Discounts are given for wooden and antique boats built
before 1955. The show provides individuals with all the
necessary selling documents, right down to the "SOLD"
sign, so even a novice salesperson can work a successful
deal during the three-day show.
Banking, insurance and surveying services will be

Liveaboard laws being drafted for unincorporated Broward
Broward County's General Counsel's Office has
drafted a zoning ordinance regulating docks, mooring and
anchoring of vessels in the residential areas of
unincorporated Broward County (primarily Lauderdale
Isles). The county's zoning board will be reviewing these
changes at its monthly public meeting, Wednesday, March
2nd, at 7:30 p.m. in the County Commission Room on the
fourth floor of the Governmental Center at Andrews and
SW 2nd Street in downtown Fort Lauderdale.
In the proposed changes, rafting of boats would be

prohibited. Docked or moored vessels could not exceed
more than 30 percent in the width of a canal or waterway.
Sideyard setback lines would apply to boats docked at
that particular property. Repairs and maintenance of
vessels would be restricted to only those craft owned or
controlled by the legal occupant of the residence or the
house guests of the-legal occupant, according to David
Fee, an attorney in the General Counsel's office.

The City of Fort Lauderdale has applied to the Army
Corps of Engineers for permission to construct a public
marina at the Seventh Avenue boat ramps, the western
terminus of the New River's Riverwalk project.
The city proposes to build dockage for 32,boats on the
north bank of the New River. They want to dredge
approximately 1,100 cubic yards of river bottom and
dispose of the dredged material at an upland disposal site.
The proposal also includes the placement of roughly 400
cubic yards of riprap material over 0.15 acres of river
bottom to protect the existing seawall from scouring by
The public marina will be owned and operated by the
City of Fort Lauderdale as a part of Riverwalk, a

regarding the city's application. Letters should be sent by
March 4, 1988 to: District Engineer, Department of

phase of an effort by the county to draft a body of
ordinances dealing with dockage and liveaboards. Changes
are being drafted in the current anti-litter ordinance and a
comprehensive law applying directly to liveaboards is
expected to be drawn up later in the year.
Mr. Fee stressed that the proposed ordinances would
only apply to unincorporated areas of Broward County. He
is encouraging feedback from the boating community and
can be reached at 357-7600. He will also be presenting the
proposals at the zoning board hearing.
FORT LAUDERDALE-- The Florida Department of
Transportation (DOT) will conduct a public information

existing bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway as well as
facilities for bicyclists, the handicapped, and pedestrians.
The workshop is being held to receive comments from
the public about the proposed improvements and to inform
participants about details being considered. Aerial maps
will be on display, and DOT officials will be available to
answer individual questions during the three-hour session.

A Tunnel fo 17th Street \ Existing Structu
A Tunnel for 17 th Street -. /- .
by M.G. Swift
Thirty years ago the great debate in Fort Lauderdale
was over whether to build tunnel under the New River at
Federal Highway replacing an obsolete drawbridge. The
argument against it was the tunnel's high construction and
maintenance costs. Tunnel advocates, like newspaper
editor Henry Kinney, believed it was the only way to relieve
the vehicular and boat traffic jams that occurred at this
intersection of river and road.
Kinney's point of view won out, of course, and the only
highway tunnel in the state of Florida bears his name in
downtown Fort Lauderdale.
Now, three decades later, another drawbridge, the
Southeast 17th Street Causeway is quickly growing old
and traffic is backing up. The arguments are basically the
same: expediency versus money.
"If we opt for anything other than a tunnel, our
grandchildren will turn our pictures to the wall," Fort
Lauderdale Mayor Bob Cox warned. "I'm the last guy who
wants to spend anybody's money uselessly," the city leader
and marina owner went on. "We have to have the tunnel."
A citizen's advisory committee agrees with the mayor.
"There is a genuine desire on behalf of the community to do
it right, right now," declared Ralph Marrinson, chairman of
the panel selected by Congressman E. Clay Shaw to study
the causeway and the options available to cross the
Intracoastal Waterway. 'This tunnel is the natural solution.
Fort Lauderdale elections
Fort Lauderdale City Commissioner Jim Naugle who
represents the waterfront committees of Riverside Park,
Sailboat Bend, Tarpon River, Rio Vista and Harbor Beach
on the south side of the city won re-election by a landslide
February 9th. By polling 77 percent of the votes in
District Four, Naugle avoided a run-off on "Super
Tuesday" (the March 8th State Primary) against Brooke
Mills Bass who took only 17 percent.
Mayor Bob Cox was only 37 votes (out of 18,632 cast)
short of avoiding a runoff in the contest for mayor of Fort
Lau-derdale. Marina owner Cox netted 49.8 percent of
vote to John Rodstrom's 46.9 percent. Brian Rothschild,
the third candidate for mayor, pulled 3.3 percent
preventing Cox or Rodstrom from fielding a-majority. Cox
and Rodstrom will face off again in the March 8th primary.

With the re-election behind him, Commissioner Naugle

No one has stepped forward to say this is not answer."
At least not yet. However, a new drawbridge at site
could cost the tax payers as little as $11 million dollars,
while a tunnel could cost as much as $79 million.
"Getting the money will be a big problem," observed
Rep. Shaw, R-Fort Lauderdale. "When you start talking
about tens of millions of dollars, it presents a substantial
problem," continued the congressman reflecting on the
prospect of persuading his colleagues in Washington to
help the state and county fund a tunnel. "Everyone is
looking for places to cut the budget, and capital projects
are one of the first places they look."
"It will take a great deal of cooperation from the
state," Shaw said, "because it will require a great deal of
Highway planners estimate it will take at least 18
months to get tunnel designs off the drawing board and
another six months to find a contractor. They figure it will
then take two to three years to actually construct a
six-lane, double tube tunnel under the ICW.
The Florida Department of Transportation (DOT)
wants to bypass state environmental impact studies and
forward the advisory committee's recommendation to the
Federal Highway Administration for consideration, said
Bruce Seiler district planning administrator for the DOT.

Saucy Sue, the first place PHFR (Performance
Handicap Rating Factor) boat, beat out the first place
IMS (Intemational Measurement System) boat Prima by 16
seconds. The overall performance winner is the boat that
beats the second in her class by the greatest margin.
Saucy Sue beat the second place winner in PHFR by two
hours, 51 minutes and 52 seconds; Prima beat the second
place IMS winner by 2 hours, 51 minutes, 36 seconds.

Gary Jobson, well known yacht racing commentator and

Multi-hull race changes name
The Worrell 1000, a 12-day, 1000 mile multi-hull
sailboat race from Fort Lauderdale to Virginia Beach, has
changed its name to the World 1000. Scheduled to begin
May 17 with three separate classes, an expected field of
30 boats includes two South Florida teams among the early
The name change to World 1000 was designed by race
promoters to emphasize the expansion of the race into
what they view as "a world-class event and to highlight the
change of the ownership of the race." Said Al Etheridge,
now a co-owner of the race and member of the crew of last
year's winning boat (Team Hall Auto World), "A. Michael
Worrell, the founder and original promoter of the race, is
no longer associated with the race."
The race is now owned by George S. Hazzis, whose
pizza franchise company in Virginia has sponsored teams in
the race over the past three years and Etheridge, who
besides winning in 1987, has participated in the race six
times since Worrell founded the multi-hull sailboat race in

Gaudillat skippered an unsuccessful boat in last year's

greatly from that experience. Designed by Geno Morrelli,
the multi-hull is being built in California. Gaudillat will be
rigging the boat himself. He's calls his craft the Winning

Broward to cleanup its waterways
Last year one volunteer found a bottlecontaining a
woman's bikini along with her name and phone number. This
year's organizers of Waterway Cleanup '88 aren't
promising lucky finds like that along Broward County's
waterfront, but participants of the March 5th effort are
invited to a "Trash Bash" later that Saturday afternoon.
The cleanup, sponsored since 1975 by the Marine
Industries Association of South Florida (MIASF) will get
underway at 8:30 a.m. at sixteen sites scattered
throughout the county's waterfront community from
Deerfield Beach to Hallandale, Birch/Las Olas to
Each year hundreds of tons of trash are dumped into
Broward's waterways by thoughtless boaters, careless
homeowners and criminal dumpers.'We have to make them
aware that it is not a dump out there," said Van Snider,
executive director of the MIASF.
Snider, members of the MIASF and local civic
associations.get together and do a spring cleaning of sorts
to Broward's waterways, collecting trash and debris from
in and along the Canals and rivers.
Although the cleanup was not held from 1983 to 1985,
it found new life through the City of Fort Lauderdale's
"Make It Shine" beautification program held in
commemoration of that city's 75th anniversary in 1985.
1,500 volunteers dug in and collected over 100 tons of
garbage from the waterways in March of 1986.
To show their appreciation for all the-volunteers' hard
work, the marine industry hosts a "Trash Bash"; a
post-party held at Tugboat Annies at Harbour Towne
Marina in Dania the day of the event after the cleanup at 3
p.m. There, weary participants can partake in free soft
drinks and hot dogs while comparing unusual items they've
found. In past years, trash treasure hunters have found
television sets, Christmas lights and even a refrigerator.
Volunteers will be given Waterway Cleanup T-shirts
and trash bags at one of the sites. With each filled bag of
trash turned in at the site you will be given a Treasure
Hunt ticket to go into a drawing of prizes at the "Trash
For more information about volunteering yourself
and/or your boat for the Waterway Cleanup '88 or to
donate prizes and services for the cleanup participants,

New artificial reef for anglers
Buddy Merritt would have liked to have fished on this
wreck. Snowy grouper and warsaw grouper will be anxious
to make the new Buddy Merritt Artificia'Reef their home.
Lying in the cool dark blue waters, 420' below the surface
of the surface of the Gulfstream, this 80' barge loaded
with huge steel yacht cradles will become a haven for many
types of deep water fish. This reef was named in honor of
Buddy Merritt by his brother Allen Merritt, who builds
Merritt Boats, the custom sportfishing craft. Allen, who
donated the cost of the preparation and transportation of
the reef stated, "Buddy and I started out as charterboat
skippers. Many a fishing trip was saved by dropping a bait
down on a deep wreck and pulling up a nice grouper, I
wanted to do something, in memory of my brother, to help
this generation of charterboat skippers. This reef should
help their fishing as well as the offshore environment."
At the break of dawn on December 17th the tug
"Resolve II" took the barge and its welded superstructure
in tow and headed north to the buoyed artificial reef site.
The Gulfstream, whipped up by a 20 knot north wind,
caused the barge to lurch and wallow, making the sinking
operation difficult and dangerous. After three hours of
pumping the barge full of sea water, the vessel slipped
below the surface to its final resting place. Captain Leo
DeMattia,of the charterboat "Arbitrator", surveyed the
reef with his color sonar and reported that the barge is
resting upright in 420' of water.
The Loran C coordinates are 14275.5, 62089.8 For

Program contact the Broward County Erosion Prevention
District at 955 S. Federal Hwy, Ft. Lauderdale, FL
Bald Eagle sighted over West Lake
-\n Friday, January 15, 1988 a sub adult Southern
Bald Eagle was observed at 11:30 a.m. in the 1400 acre
West Lake preserve in southeastern Broward County. The
Bald Eagle, the national emblem of the United States, was
identified by Gil MacAdam, the Broward County Parks and
Recreation Division' West Lake project coordinator and
was witnessed by Barbara Hall, Assistant General Counsel
for Broward County.
The Bald Eagle is an official threatened species with a
wing spread at maturity of 7 feet. The bird observed was
dark brown with a mottled white head and tail (versus the
brilliant white head and tail of a fully mature Bald Eagle).

The eagle was dive bombed a number of times by an
osprey, a large fish eating hawk which is also a threatened
species. The action by the osprey was an attempt to drive
the larger eagle from the territory. The eagle however,
unintimidated by the osprey, subsequently climbed high
into the sky and glided northward over the Atlantic Ocean.
The sighting of the Bald Eagle makes it the 20th bird
species on the Rare, Threatened, Endangered, or Species
of Special Concern list of birds that have been identified in
the mangrove preserve of West Lake. It is only the second
time a Bald Eagle has been seen in the Broward County
Park system. The other sighting was in Tradewinds Park

Waterfront News March 1988 17
Local residents and property owners of a Fort
Lauderdale waterfront neighborhood are requesting that
their area be made a historic district. Several landlords in
the area bounded on the south by the New River, north by
SW 2nd Street and east to west from SW 7th Avenue to
11th Avenue oppose the designation fearing the
accompanying restrictions would impact them negatively.
The neighborhood is one of the original sections of Fort
Lauderdale settled, with Mediterranean Revival houses
dating back to the 1910's. Built of local materials, like
Dade County pine which is resistant to insects and South
Florida weather many houses in the 17-block proposed
district have been beautifully restored.
In January the Sailboat Civic Association sponsored a
historic home and garden tour which attracted 1,300
curious visitors to the neighborhood.
The civic association, representing 65 homeowners in
Sailboat Bend applied to the City of Fort Lauderdale for
the historical designation in December of 1987, claiming
area is united in culture, plan and development;
significant concentration and continuity of buildings
Sailboat Bend is the site of the original Fort that Major
William Lauderdale had constructed in 1838,
approximately at today's SW 9th Avenue and 4th Street
(see "150th Anniversary of Fort Lauderdale
commemorated", elsewhere in this issue of Waterfront

Cliff Clark, who owns property on SW 7th Avenue, said
restrictions brought on by a historic district would make it
economically unfeasible for landlords in the area. Plus he
claims, "The Sailboat Bend Civic Association has about 65
members and doesn't represent the neighborhood!"
Civic association members reply that Clark's property
"has been permitted to deteriorate to the level where it ...

Key West, Florida Keys -- Clarion calls of conch shells
will ring out from Key West's Old Mallory Square when the.
26th Annual Conch Shell Blowing Contest gets underway
Saturday, March 19, at 10 a.m. The unique contest, begun
in 1962, is part of the tradition of the Old Island Days
celebrations sponsored annually by the Old Island
Restoration Foundation. Free to the public, the event
attracts standing room audiences to hear contestants as
young as three-years-old compete along with senior
The origin of the event goes back several hundred years
in the lower Florida Keys to the days when Calusa Indians
and pirates dwelled here and utilized the conch shell for
communication. A toot was a signal of survival or distress,
or perhaps a means of just breaking the silences of
these-then-lonely islands. Today, ship captains have
revived the custom of blowing on their shells in Key West
But Clark is not alone. Another area landlord Leona
Allen said she does not live in Sailboat Bend because of the
"old and ugly" buildings. A seasonal resident, Arthur
Tomlinson, who lives at the Rivermont House, doesn't want
to see the neighborhood burdened with new restrictions
and ordinances, pointing out: "We don't live in a condo'
because we don't like restrictions."
The city's Historic Preservation Board will be hearing
pro's and con's on the Sailboat proposed historic district,
Monday, March 14th at 7:30 p.m., in'the commission
meeting auditorium at Fort Lauderdale City Hall.
harbor to signal their departures for deeper waters.
The conch has been known since prehistoric time and
figures in Greek mythology. Triton, the son of the Greek
sea god Poseidon, usually is depicted in statuary with a
conch shell he used as a trumpet. Conch shells also figured
in the life of the Mayans in ancient Mexico, and the troops
of Juan Ponce de Leon were met in Florida by Indians
blowing conch shells.
The conch also is a staple food throughout its realm -
from the northern stretches of Brazil to Bermuda,
extending from the Bahamas westward through Cuba to
encompass all of the Caribbean and lower Florida Keys.
Natives of Key West (also called "Conchs," pronounced
"konks") as well as tourists thrill to the sounds blown by
persons of all ages as they compete during the 90 minute
contest. Youngsters blow for trophies and the older
contestants for the fun of it.

JOHN "SPIDER" MARTIN is at it again at The
Breakers every Friday and Saturday night with a cooking'
trio/quartet and on Wednesday nights with an open jam
session where all musicians are welcome.
Featured guest, organist GENE LUDWIG, will be
performing with Spider until April. Catch him while he's
here, he's a foremost jazz organist. Another special treat
in March (2nd & 4th) is tenor saxophonist, SCOTT
HAMILTON. (He is a must see!)
Future note: Organist JIMMY McGRIFF, whose album
with Billy Preston is #20 on Billboard's Top 100, will be
guest artist in April with Spider at The Breakers.
On March 25th and 26th Spider plays Mayfair in the
Grove at 5 p.m. and Tropics on the Beach those evenings,
with guest performer, MONGO SANTAMARIA. (And the
heavies just keep coming.)
ALICE DAY and Spider will perform at Backstage at
the Burt Reynolds Dinner Theatre in Jupiter March 31st
through April 3rd.
In addition to his performing, John Spider Martin
conducts The Jazz Workshop at Model City's Cultural Art
Center in Miami each and every Saturday from noon until 4
p.m. As the Director of Jazz (great title), he holds
workshops for young and old musicians who want to
improve, or polish up on their jazz skills. Assisting him is
Sandy Patton, Pete Minger, and Dolph Costellano, just to
name a few.
Spider Martin is a very generous man, for those of you
who might not know him. He is especially generous with his
time. He has been instrumental in the organization of the
United Cerebral Palsy benefit held each year in Miami. He
currently teaches classes; and always invites musicians in
the audience to come up and play. Spider is encouraging to
young players as evidenced by his devotion to the
workshops he conducts. This is not a testimony (although
deserved), but simply an overdue 'Thank you" to a man who
has done so much to keep South Florida's Jazz alive. Please
go hear him for yourself. The Breakers is located at 909

surpasses fund-raising goal
by Joy Bedick
FORT LAUDERDALE -- Robert B. Lochrie, Jr.,
chairman of the Broward Performing Arts Foundation,
Inc., announced today that the Performing Arts Center
Capital Campaign has surpassed the $11 million mark. To
date, the Foundation has raised $11,198,990.
Lochrie said, "We've closed several gifts within the
past two weeks and additional gifts are expected to close
shortly. We're still actively soliciting contributions and are
pleased with the support we've received."
At this time, the Foundation is in the second phase of
the Capital Campaign. The Foundation's immediate goal is
to raise $2.9 million by March 15,1988.
The organization has already raised $10 million, and
reached its $10 million goal in the first phase of the Capital
Campaign. By raising the $10 million by a January 15,1988
deadline, the Foundation guaranteed an agreement which
triggered the release of $15 million from the State of
Florida, Broward County and City of Fort Lauderdale.
"We've met our first goal and are one-third of the way
to meeting our second goal, "Lochrie said. "I'm confident
that our second phase of the Capital Campaign will be as
successful as the first phase. Right now, the momentum is
going strong and growing stronger daily. The Performing
Arts Center is a project whose time has come."

A movable festival A
The weekend of March 26th and 27th will be a festive
one on both banks of the New River in downtown Fort
Lauderdale. Starting with the Las Olas Art Festival,
rolling into the new Neighborhood Fair and capping it off
with fireworks of the New River Street Dance, it should
be a memorable Saturday along the waterfront.
Once a year for two days four blocks of downtown Fort
Lauderdale are transformed into an art show featuring
over 260 artists, carnival type foods and the ambience of
East Las Olas Boulevard. Saturday and Sunday from 10
a.m. to 6 p.m., the 19th annual Las Olas Art Festival will
be exhibiting drawings, glass creations, paintings,
enamels, wood carvings, ceramics, sculptures, jewelry and
photography from the Stranahan House east to the
Himarshee Canal Bridge. Admission is free.
Celebrating Fort Lauderdale's 77th birthday as a city,
the New River Street Dance will bring together 25
non-profit organizations manning ethnic food booths and
rock, country, jazz, blues and reggae musical groups on
three outdoor stages set up from Andrews Avenue Bridge
to Smokers Park along the south bank of the New River.
Running from 3 to 11 p.m., on Saturday the Third Avenue
Bridge will again serve as the traditional focal point of the
street dance, sheltering long tables laden with glasses
(plastic) of champagne to toast another year of the city's
"life." The evening will be capped off by a spectacular
fireworks display around 9 p.m.
In conjunction with the street dance, the city is
sponsoring the Neighborhood Fair across the river at
Bubier Park on Saturday. From noon till 6 p.m., at least 16
neighborhood civic associations and the various City
departments will maintain booths demonstrating what
they're involved with in "an active hands-on environment."
Parking at the city parking garage across from the
main library or on the courthouse lot is suggested. One can
take in the art show in the morning, the fair in the
afternoon and the street dance that evening, all on foot
without moving the car. And if that isn't enough the art
festival continues Sunday.

Dust storms and hurricanes
by Jack McClintock
Joe Prospero looks into the bottom of a white
plastic bucket after a summer rain in Miami,
Florida, and sees an unusual red-brown mud.
"The amount deposited is significant," he
So is where it came from. The drought in Africa
is entering its 20th year, with more people dying,
the desert advancing into what once was
farmland, and the soil drying up and blowing
away. Some of the soil ends up in the. United
States. Some travels even farther from its source
in the North African Sahel region.
Prospero is professor of marine and
atmospheric chemistry at the University of
Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and
Atmospheric Science. During two decades of
studying the fate of African dust and dust from
other arid regions, he has found it being
deposited across much of the globe. It shows up
on islands in the Atlantic and Pacific, in the
oceans where core samples show undisturbed
layers of the same red-brown mud as far south as
Antarctica, and on the continental United States.
"The amount of minerals being brought to
South Florida in a year," he says, "is about one-
tenth of an ounce per square yard per year, or
three pounds per square yard per 1,000 years. It is
a significant amount from the standpoint of soil
formation in some places."
Prospero is looking at the long-term dust
record to get an idea of climate's impact on dust
generation and transport--and what becomes of
this blown-away African dust.
"We want to know where it comes from, how it
gets into the atmosphere over Africa, what

weather patterns affect it, how it's removed from
the atmosphere and when and where it's
deposited--the eventual fate of the dust." He is
also interested in the.impact of land-use on dust
generation. Poor land-use greatly increases
It's a tricky thing to study. "It's episodic and
easy to misread," he says. Enormousquantities of
soil rise up from the Sahel and form dust clouds
so big they can be seen in satellite photos.
Offshore winds carry them westward. "We've
found that these materials can be transported
long distances, 5,000 to 10,000 miles," Prospero
The masses of dust do not simply drift along,
slowly sifting their burden to earth. Instead,
Prospero says, "seventy-five percent of their
mass is deposited in only a few days of rain. So
it's difficult to measure the amount. If you
measured it from a ship on the ocean, you might
get a very large number or a very small one,
depending on whether or not you were there at the
right time. Because it's not a slow and steady
long-term trickling, it's brief massive inputs."
To measure dust deposition more consistently,
Prospero has set up island stations all over the
wo.rld--15 in the Pacific Ocean, for example, from
the Bering Sea to the Antarctic. There, machines
suck air through paper filters which catch dust
residue. Then the filters are sent to Miami for
Prospero has found that the composition of the
deposits from filter papers collected at the island
stations are "about the same" as those deposits
found on the floor of the underlying ocean.
That suggests that the dust is transported over
long distances. In the case pf Saharan dust, it

probably reaches much of the eastern U.S. and
the central North Atlantic. "We haven't studied it
extensively in this region, but there's no reason
why not, and the weather patterns say it probably
does," he says. His work has shown that much of
the Bahamas are blanketed with reddish African
Scientists are beginning to learn a great'deal
from these African dust clouds, Prospero says.
Ocean sediments made up of African dust that
fell from the clouds over the centuries contain a
record of Africa's climate. Unlike the sediment on
continents, this deep-sea mud lies in undisturbed
"Studying it can help us understand what the
implications of a two or three degree rise in
earth temperature might be," Prospero says. If
theories of the greenhouse effect prove true. this
could be significant knowledge.
'"Dust can also affect climate," he says. The
dust clouds absorb some of the sun's radiation,
the way ash from volcanic eruptions has. These
phenomena might tell us more about what
climatic effects we can expect from nuclear wars
since the dust can produce effects similar to brief
"nuclear winter" episodes.
In addition, nitrates and other nutrients in the
dust that falls into the ocean can cause great
surges .of biological productivity. "We see
something like that in exaggerated form in the
Lake Okeechobee algae broom brought on by
There also seems to be an intriguing
connection between the Saharan dust clouds and
"We have not had a large hurricane in this
region in.20 years," Prospero points out, "and the
drought in Africa began about the same time: This
is a tantalizing relationship that suggests the
climate over North Africa and the tropical north
Atlantic may have changed in some major way.
We just don't know."
The African dust is turning out to be useful in
many ways. "It is a tracer--an indicator of many
interrelated processes," Prospero says.
For instance, Prospero's newest work has
begun to focus on how European acid rain
pollution is being carried to the Caribbean and the
U.S. on the same air masses that bring us African
