Las Olas Art Festival
Once a yearor ftwo days four blocks of
downtown Fort Lauderdale are transformed into
an art show featuring 260 artists, festival type
foods and the ambience of East Las Olas
Boulevard. Come Saturday and Sunday March
28th and 29th from 10:00 a.m. to 6 p.m., the 18th
Annual Las Olas Art Festival will be displaying
drawings, ceramics, paintings, enamels, wood
carving, glass creations, sculpture, jewelry, and
photography from the Stranahan House east to
the Himarshee Canal bridge.
Admission is free to this nationally famous
cultural event sponsored 'by Fort Lauderdale's
Museum of Art.
The Las Olas Art Festival, at its inception in
March 1970, was intended to be primarily an art
event and the Museum of Art's gift to the
community. All profits (if any) were to go to the
During that weekend in March of 1970, the
festival extended along both sides of elegant Las
Olas Boulevard and covered basically the same
four and one half block area as it does today, with
one major difference Las Olas was not closed to
180 artists exhibited their wares and competed
for $1,000 in prize money. The public came, saw,
and enjoyed, and the Las Olas Art Festival was on
its way. The following year, 250 artists were
selected from the many who applied as a result of
the successful first year endeavor. The news had
As the festival continues to grow andi enjoy
success, the caliber of art exhibited continued to
improve. It is a juried show. The festival is
extremely well run with the cooperation of not
only the City of Fort Lauderdale, but also the Las
Olas Merchants Association who provide a
significant portion of the $5,000 in prize money.
Today, the festival is a nationally recognized
show with an excellent reputation. For the past
several years the Las Olas Art Festival has been
rated among the top ten art shows nationwide by
Sunshine Artist Magazine. This reputation was
earned as a result of many months of effort, each
year, on the part of the sponsoring groups.
Over the 1300 artists who apply to participate in
the Festival, only 260 will be selected. Last year
31 .tapes 2,4 rl:r,'.a were rp;rese:'. a fact
that attests to the popularity and appeal of the
Adding to its prestige is the fact that the
museum director selects the judge who is almost
always a prominent name in the art world. Last
year's judge was Douglas G. Schultz of the
Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, New York.
This year's judge will be Larry Ruggiero from the
Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, Florida.
The lamppost logo identifying the Las Olas Art
Festival was designed by prominent local artist
Maurice La Reau in 1974 and is used on all printed
material pertaining to the Festival.
The most recent effort on the part of the local
art community, is the handsome poster designed
especially for the Art Festival by Rosanna
Sacoccio. Silk screened in a limited edition of 100,
they were completely sold out by early afternoon
of the first day of the 1984 Festival. The 1985 and
1986 Festivals saw a repeat of this rapid sale of
the posters. In addition to the limited edition, 1986
was the first year for a modestly priced
commercially printed poster which proved to be

by the "yellowbirds" (Festival volunteers) during
the two day Festival weekend, were designed by

easy way to spot promise of assistance. Festival
coordinators can tell you that every year there

All proceeds go to the Fort Lauderdale Museum
of Art, located in a new 64,000 sq. ft. facility, at the
corner of Andrews Avenue and East Las Olas
Boulevard. Local businesses recognize the need
for support of community arts, and participate by
underwriting the various costs of the Festival.
At present, this weekend event that was
originally intended as a gift of art to the
community, earns substantial funds to benefit the
Museum as well as attracting many to its location
who may otherwise be unaware of its existence.

I was very disturbed to learn, that Tracor
Marine is being evicted from Port Everglades to
provide space for a convention center and more
cruise ships. With so many convention centers
being built in every major city in the country it'll
be only a short period of time before there is an
overabundance of them and they'll be too
competitive and not very profitable. Ship building
and repair facilite-Son the other hand are not
abundant in this country at all. Tracor Marine is
the only yard capable of hauling large
commercial ships on the Florida coast south of
Jacksonville and is a service which the Port of
Miami does not provide. Ft. Lauderdale is intent
on drawing more tourists yet our roads are
overtaxed during the tourist season and most
people who live here don't want more tourists or
growth in south Florida. Tracor Marine provides
jobs to the people of Ft. Lauderdale and is an
asset to the local economy and the marine
industries here by attracting large yachts and
ships from the world over, and does not create an
over population problem, as will this convention
center. A heavy industry such as a shipyard is a
fascinating thing to see and without Tracor in
Port Everglades, Ft. Lauderdale will sadly lose
much of the nautical flavor for which it is so
famous. I wish we would consider the effect these
changes will have on the life of the people who
reside in Ft. Lauderdale and pay taxes here before
area loses its individual character and becomes
not as nice a place to live.

Editor's Note: Tracor Marine,.which had a 30-year
lease on the site, initiated the chain of events,
according to Tim Lewis, director of public affairs
at Port Everglades and substantiated by Tracor's
director of administration at the port location.
Tracor's parent company wants to scale back its
shipyard subsidiary. Port Everglades Port
Director Tom Burke had recommended that the
port acquire the operational land now under lease
to Tracor, stated an item in the Marine Industries
Association of South Florida February
-newsletter. Designated as Berth 28 years; ago, the
shipyard is directly between Berths 27and29and
could add to berth space for use as a passenger
berth. See a related story on page 13
RE: Speed restrictions on the ICW
I live in Lighthouse Point. I like to visit
restaurants, friends, and places of.interest on our
vast waterway system.Also I, and thousands of
others, like to go out the inlet and fish in the
beautiful ocean that has lured us all here.
Therefore, I bought a home on the waterway and.
pay the resulting property tax premium.
However, the recent installation of "Idle Speed"
restrictions on the ICW, from Hillsboro Inlet north
to about 48th St., has made such pleasures
extremely tedious and frustrating. At idle speed it
takes 25 min. to go from the North Grand Canal to
the inlet and against the current it takes much
longer. This is a major inconvenience but if there
was a good reason for the restriction I could, as a
good citizen, adapt and live with it. So what is the
purpose of this idle speed zone? Boat speed limits
should be intended to control boat traffic for
safety purposes as auto speed limits control auto
traffic. However, the area is wide and not
congested. There are no marinas along the way. It
is perfectly straight and certainly not difficult to
navigate. The proported high accident rate is
simply not supported by fact. So why is there an
idle speed restriction????
I suspect that some rather strong clout is being
applied by persons who have recently built
private docks on the ICW and want to keep their
boats there. So what is really intended is to
minimize the wake. If you are a member of the
very small minority who live on the ICW this is an
understandable personal goal but it is not
appropriate for the community as a whole. You
don't dock on the ICW anymore than you park on
1-95. It is a major transportation artery and
inappropriate for anything else. Persons who live
on the ICW know, or should know, that they must
maintain their seawalls and dock their boats
elsewhere. It is part of the price they pay for the
ICW view and prestige. In turn, people who live on
the side canals forfeit those advantages for the
ability to dock behind theirhomeand have access
to a major waterway that is intended to handle
them expediently and safely. To change this
system for the advantage of the few who live on
the ICW is simply unfair to the majority who don't
Ask Big Al
My 11-year-old sloop in storage up on Cape Cod
has a Farymann diesel that has never had major
work done on it, yet runs well every summer and
turns over when cranked. .
Because we plan to take the boat down the ICW
next summer, I don't want to run the risk of a
problem along the way. A boatyard mechanic up
there wanted to take the engine out of the boat
and work on it over the winter at his shop,
claiming that it needed all new wiring and
cleaning and that he could check it more
thoroughly and easier thah he could in the
confined space of the boat. I delayed a decision
due to the price of about $1500--mostly labor--
until I could get more advice.
The boat has been cared for by the yard and
myself and has had new filters and oil changes
every summer. Do you feel from what I have noted
here that the best way to thoroughly check the
engine would be to remove it?
Your Farymann Diesel is a great engine and as
long as you have serviced it with oil changes and
new filters it will run and run and run. Most of the
expense will be in removing it. For a check of
what? The wiring to the gauges and switches is
simple and as long as the starter and charging
systems are checked for tightness and corrosi n
you're in good shape. I don't know how large an
engine you have or the horsepower, but if the
compression is good and you have no oil leaks of
any kind I would clean it in the boat. The only time
I remove an engine is on a major overhaul where
the engine is disassembled. I hope this helps.
and to the boating community in general. The
result of such a precedent would be an idle speed
zone for the entire length of the ICW.
However, reasonable speed limits are
appropriate. It was ludicrous to go from a
completely unrestricted waterway to one that is
so confining that it invites violation and incurs
frustration and excessive inconvenience on the
very users we maintain it for. I strongly ask your
support, and the support of all concerned persons
and agencies, to remove the "Idle Speed"
restrictions on the ICW between markers 68 and
69. It would seem that30 MPH limits would negate
the threat of excessive speed and still provide an
expeditious and orderly flow of traffic on the ICW.
Col Reid C. Young USAF (RET)
We need the "No Wake" Signs on the
Intracoastal Waterway. The high speed of boats
has caused considerable damage to property
along the waterway. We recently replaced our,
sea wall. It cost us about $12,000 for 90'. We are
not the only ones who have had this expense.
There has also been considerable damage done to
boats and yachts docked along the waterway.
The comment "Since nothing on the
Intracoastal is broke why has it become
necessary to fix anything?" is a very stupid,
narrow minded and self serving remark. If you
have to replace your seawall or repair your boat-
then I. would say something is broke. Does this
person own property on the Intracoastal
Waterway or in Lighthouse Point? The taxes on
our property are over $3,300 per year.:
Erosion is another factor. A great deal has been
brought to our attention about the erosion
problem along our coastal areas. This applies to
the Intracoastal as well. Steps should be taken
now to protect our land and environment against
further erosion. The high speed of boats does
contribute to erosion.
SEven if I did not own property on the
Intracoastal Waterway I would certainly, have
respect for the property of those who did. One of
the big problems in today society is lack of
respect for the other person and his property.
SThe Intracoastal canal was originally
constructed to be a working canal for commercial
purposes. All boaters should be grateful thatthey
have it to use and it should not be abused.

Coast Guard proposes changes in bridges openings
The Coast Guard has proposed a change to the
Oakland Park Boulevard drawbridge operation
regulations. Further south down the Intracoastal
Waterway, the Coast Guard will consider a
continuation of temporary drawbridge operation
regulations at Sunrise Boulevard if the new south
span is not. opened to traffic by the end of
Oakland Park Bridge
The Oakland Park Boulevard drawbridge
across the Intracoastal Waterway currently
opens on signal from May 15th until November
15th. From November 15th until May 15th,, it
opens every 20 minutes from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on
weekdays and every 15 minutes from 10a.m. to6
p.m. on weekends and holidays.
The proposed rule would extend this same
schedule to 10 p.m. each.night. The intent of the
rule change, states Coast Guard Public Notice #1-
87, is to reduce or eliminate "back-to-back"
bridge openings by allowing sufficient time
between openings for vehicular street traffic to
clear .before the next opening occurs.
The Coast Guard district office in Miami is
receiving comments on this proposal. Mr. Brodie
Rich can be contacted at 536-4103. For further
information, written comments should be sent to:

No-Wake signs to remain
by Rachel Leach
After much debate and opposition, the
controversial No-Wake signs along the
Intracoastal just north of Hillsboro Inlet will stay
where they are. On Monday, January 26th, the
County Commission voted 6 to 1 not to remove the
signs that the-Broward County Sheriff's Office
installed along the 3/4 mile stretch of waterway
In July of 1986, Sheriff Navarro placed the signs
without going through the proper governmental
channels. However, many residents along the
Intracoastal Waterway gladly welcomed the
placement of the signs due to the reckless boating
they witnessed from their backyards on a daily
According to Mr. Gerald Santi, a homeowner on
the waterway, "The area is very congested and!
getting more so all the time. On a busy day, like a
weekend or a holiday, I see as many a 200 boats
an hour go by. Going slow saves lives. Safety is
most important in any sport." Mr. Santi added
that he traveled the length of the Intracoastal
from Florida to New York and noted that all the
populated areas had idle speed zones.
Mr. John Ross, another Intracoastal waterfront
homeowner says in addition to the reported
boating accidents in the area, he knows of
several unreported ones. A neighbor's stepson
was hurt when his boat was hit by a wake from a
speeding boat while the boy was lifting his boat
up on davits. Mr. Ross says he sees several speed
boats weave in and out of sailboats and small
boats, causing dangerous near misses. Mr. Ross
also mentioned that he had to do $12,000.00 worth
of work to replace 3 sections of his sea wall due to
the constant turbulence caused by speeding
boats. Workers on a neighbor's sea wall had lots
of trouble working because of the rough wake.
Both Mr. Santi and Mr. Ross mentioned that the
marker sign, number 68-68A, in front of Caps
Restaurant is constantly hit and knocked down.
Said Ross, "If you try to tell the speeders to slow
down, you are just subjected to abusive
language." According to Mr. Ross, Navarro's
officers questioned residents about their feelings
for plans to put up the signs 3 weeks before the
signs were implemented. Mr. Ross said he had no
problem collecting 697 signatures from people in
favor of the signs the Saturday and Sunday
before the meeting.
Ken Steel, a licensed boat captain, feels that the
idle speed zone is an overkill. Mr. Steel would
rather see a 30 mph zone, that is standard in
Broward County, put in its place. Mr. Steel
attended the Commission meeting and feels the
new ruling is very shaky on the basis of the law.
Said Mr. Steel, "The way the Florida Statutes are
written, the new ruling shouldn't exist. The
Commission created a law contrary to state law.
The Delegation was supposed to hear from five
speakers but the Chair turned it into a public
hearing. The Commission heard from the
opposition, then turned to the public for its
response. It was not advertised as a public
meeting. Those who use the waterway, had their
use stolen." Mr. Steel added that the area in
question, between markers 68 and 69 is the safest
area on the waterway; there has never been a
fatality. Mr. Steel feels that idle speed doesn't
create safety .and, that many accidents still
happen in idle speed zones.
Another resident present at the meeting but
who didn't get a chance to speak was Bill:
McClellen. Mr. McClellen feels that 95% of the'
people who oppose the signs are honest, law-
abiding people; it is the few who abuse the
waterway that the ruling is for. Mr. McClellen

says that he witnesses many near collisions
which would have fatal outcomes and he had
seen several apparently intoxicated boat
operators. He feels that since the area is only 3/4
mile long, it will take boats at most 10 minutes
longer to go through the stretch. Said Mr.
McClellen, "Is 10 minutes too long to save a life?
Yacht basins on canals have No-Wake zones,
why can't we?" Mr. McClellen added that he sees
lots of kids using their surf boards to cross the
Intracoastal to get to the beach and the boats
simply do not slow down for them.
When Luree Hughes, a member of the Broward
County Audubon Society Manatee Team was
interviewed, she had just been called out that
morning to South Grand Canal in Lighthouse
Point near the subject stretch of Intracoastal for
the siting of two manatees; a mother and baby.
Ms. Hughes went to the site around noon and saw
boats obeying the No-Wake signs. They slowed
for the sea cow and her baby, which gave them
time to evade the boat.
According to Ms. Hughes, when manatees are
approached by a boat, they dive under the
surface and head toward the shore and shallow
water. If a boat approaches too fast, the
manatees, being slow-moving mammals, don't
have the time to escape the often lethal
propellers. Ms. Hughes also added that manatees
are with us all year round; not just from
November to March as commonly thought. Some
of the residents interviewed for this article said
they have seen dead or badly injured manatees in
this stretch of Hillsboro waterway. Ms. Hughes is
happy about the No-Wake ruling because she is
certain it will save more manatee lives. These
mammals are presently listed on the Endangered

Either way, it's a waterfront convention center for Broward
The Broward County Commission are expected
to choose which waterfront site they want for a
county convention center complex in March. As
reported in last month's Waterfront News, the
commissioners have narrowed their choices
down to two locations, both in Fort Lauderdale:
the north end of Port Everglades south of 17th
Street Causeway on the west bank of-the
Intracoastal Waterway, and the other on the east
bank of the ICW just north of the Las Olas Bridge
including the present city owned Parking Lot.
March 10th at 10 am in the County Government
Center, South Andrews Avenue at Southwest 2nd
Street, the County Commission will meet to
decide the convention center issue. On March 9th,
commissioners will meet jointly with the Broward
Tourist Development Council to discuss the rival
plans. That workshop takes place at 9 am in
Room 437 at the Government Center.
The two developers still in the running are:
Northport Venture Associates, an affiliate of
Deutsch/Ireland Properties. Northport proposes
a 150,000-square-foot exhibition hall at the north
end of the port.
Pavarini Construction, of Greenwich, Conn.,
wants to build a 120,000-square-foot hall on the
Birch/Las Olas Parking Lot.
Both sites face on the Intracoastal insuring that
Fort Lauderdale's Waterfront will have a new
look whichever way the County Commission
decides. The Broward County Convention Center
could be operational by late 1989 or early 1990 at

Waterway Cleanup'87 needs boats.
by M.G. Swift
Last year, as a part of Fort Lauderdale's "Make
It Shine" program, the local marine industry
revived the "Waterway Cleanup," drawing over
one thousand volunteers and a 125 boat armada
to fifteen sites scattered throughout Broward
County's waterfront. The Marine Industries
Association of South Florida (M.I.A.-S.F.) has set
higher goals for "Waterways Cleanup'87" more
volunteers and more cleanup sites this year. But
critical to the success of the project, says T.J.
Day, one of the organizers and the site
coordinator for the event, more boats than last
year are needed to disperse the cleanup crews
from the meeting sites into the outlying
March 7th has been- set as the date for the
Waterway Cleanup '87. Volunteers are asked to
report to one of eighteen sites (see box) located
from Deerfield Beach to Hollywood, the
Intracoastal Waterway to Plantation Isles- at8:00
a.m. Saturday, working through to around noon.
Rakes, bow saws, clippers, gloves, boots or
tennis shoes, grubby clothes and a willingness to
get down and dirty are prerequistes. Call the
M.I.A. S.F..if you plan to bring your boat. The
trade group's phone number is 764-6366. Again
boats are urgently needed.
There will be a 'Treasure Hunt" as there was
last year. Tokens will be circulated in the cleanup
areas to be redeemed by participants for donated
.prizes. Treasure Hunt coordinator, Sandra Title,

requirements for advancement, waterfront civic
associations, can cleanup their neighborhood

waterways can make them a cleaner, safer and
more attractive place to be by getting involved in
the cleanup effort. "Remember that three
products that do much of the damage in our
waterways are plastic six-pack beverage rings,
monofilament fishing line and plastic bags,"
writes Van Snider budget director. Six-pack rings
are estimated to have a life-span of 450 years."

Bridge to benefit from New River Street Dance
The New River Street Dance, planned for
Saturday, March 21st, has a mission, according
to Joann Medalie, an assistant in the Fort
Lauderdale City Manager's office. The event's
sponsors are earmarking all street dance
proceeds, past and present, for the renovation of
the Third Avenue Bridge..
What began last year as a bridge painting
project of the city's "Make It Shine" program has
evolved into what could be one of the early
centerpieces of the Riverwalk plan along the New
River, predicts Medalie. An extravagant spread of
four sea and sky colors painted across .the
drawbridge, ceramic imported Italian tile trim on
the sides, two-dozen Spanish-style lamps, a new
stucco-and-tile bridge tender's house and two life
size mosiacs of historical scenes on the piling -
local designer Liz Buxton has turned a cleanup
job into a potential work of art .
Five thousand handmade tiles will feature
historic drawings of the Stranahan House, casino
pool, original county courthouse, Annie Beck
House and&Southside Fire Station. Two large
mosaic tiles depicting Seminole Indians hunting
alligator in Lake Mable by canoe and the other, a
scene of commerce on the New River early in this
century will be on either side of the bridge's base
surrounded by ceramic tiles.
The city is committed to;the project despite the
$16,400 .price tag. Free barrel tiles have been
found for the bridge tender's roof, the county has

agreed to clean and paint the structural steel,
Buxton's two years of research and designing
was donated and a good price was bid by a
contractor to do the construction work.
The Third Avenue Bridge has also been a
traditional focal point of the New River Street
Dance, sheltering long tables laden with glasses
(plastic) of champagne to toast another year in
Fort Lauderdale's "life". In either direction the
south bank of the New River has been lined with

Here in Fort Lauderdale we have many top-
quality musicians we're very lucky in that
respect. Whether your preference is top-40 dance
music, country, reggae, dixieland, funky or
straight-ahead jazz, some of the best in the
country are here.
This season, the best team for my taste (Main
Stream Jazz) is Eddie Higgins (piano), Duffy
Jackson (drums), Don Coffman (bass), and .Pete'
Minger (flugelhorn and trumpet).
They get together once a week on Monday
nights at Penguin's. On these Mondays, usually
slow nights for club owners, the room is full. The
audience is respectful and appreciative. We can
feel the magic and we know that history is being
Eddie and Duffy go way back. I can't remember
the first time I heard them together, maybe the
Hideway Lounge or the Vanguard in Miami, or at
Beeps in Fort Lauderdale. I do know it was before
1975, because about that time Eddie was leading
the house band at Bubba's. For many years and
many stars Eddie, Duffy, Chubby Jackson (bass),
.and Ira Sullivan (horns) produced the best
available jazz in South Florida and backed some
of the biggest names in the business.
Higgins now spends his summers on Cape Cod
and his winters with us. Currently, he's working
the evenings of Tuesday and Wednesday at the
Down Under Restaurant and on Sunday nights
he's in Penguin's with Don Coffman and either
Danny Berger or Steve Bagby on drums. Eddie is
brilliant as ever, providing polish and

professionalism. He brings to this room all the
experience and expertise garnered from years of
playing solos and performing an integral part in
the South Florida appearances of such greats as
Sarah Vaughn, Nancy Wilson, Joe Williams, Zoot
Sims, Art Blakey, Dexter Gordon, Stan Getz, etc.,
Don Coffman, when not performing at
Penguin's on Sunday or Monday nights, or at the

on Tuesday, Thursdays, and Saturdays, teaches
at the University of Miami. Coffman is an

with Bill Evans; Leif Johanson, now with A-ha!,
and Rick Fierabracci, with Rare Silk. His varied
background includes recording and performing
with Joe Pass, Pat Metheny, Bill Watrous, Sonny
Stitt, and Ira Sullivan. He is featured on a recent
album with Eddie Higgins and Pete Minger.
Pete Minger, born in Orangeburg, South
Carolina, has played trumpet and flugelhorn most
of his life. Pete's love affair with these two
instruments is indeed an amorous menage-a-
trois. He truly sweet talks his fans through his
horns. Pete is at Penguin's on Mondays, but
Wednesday through Saturday he's blowin' at The
Helm on Hollywood Boulevard. Along about 1969
or 1970 Pete took an audition and found himself
playing for Count Basie's Orchestra. He sat in the
Jazz Chair and became the number one trumpet
soloist for The Count. The next10 years took him,
literally, around the world. When Pete came off

that last tour in 1980 hetook another chair: one as
a student at the University of Miami under the
direction of Whit Snyder and Vince Maggio. It was
not an easy road for Pete working nights and
schooling days but, he emerged four years later
with his BA degree in Music, maybe having taught
as much as he learned. Few musicians are as
talented or as dedicated as Pete Minger.
Duffy Jackson does, on Monday nights at
Penguin's what he does best. Although it is
sometimes difficult to pinpoint just which aspect
of his multifaceted talents is the best. Duffy plays
drums. Indeed, Duffy plays drums! But he also
plays tables, ashtrays, candle holders and ice
buckets. Duffy also plays bass, piano and scats
(he can't remember the words, he tells me.) But,
nobody drives a big band like Duffy. He did it for
Count Basie (some of the time while Pete was
playing); he did it for Lionel Hampton during an
extensive tour of Japan in the early 80's; ne does
it occasionally for the U of M Concert Jazz Band;
and, he does it better that anyone.
For the last four years Duffy has been involved
with the National Association of Jazz Educators
and was in Atlanta in January for NAJE's annual
exposition. While there, he backed Dizzy
Gillespie, Buddy.DeFranco and James Moody.
Again, this all-star band, led by the wishes and
whims of the artists'/audience rapport, is at
Penguin's on Monday nights. Eddie Higgins Trio
plays on Sunday nights. Rick Krive and Full Circle
round out a full week.of jazz every night of the
week. Penguin's is fast becoming a well-
respected "joint for jazz". Dig it!

Port Everglades hosts aircraft carrier and many others
Cruising through the Port Everglades Inlet on
board a 41-foot sailboat is one thing; powering
into the port upon the flight deck of a 910-foot
aircraft carrier is quite another.
In late January, USS Lexington made a call on
Port Everglades with its crew of 1368 enlisted men
and women, and 75 officers. "A slice of naval
history", the 43-year-old training aircraft carrier
made its annual three-day goodwill visit to the
South Florida area. During the winter she
operates in the Key West area, shifting to the Gulf
of Mexico off Corpus Christi and Pensacola.
Commissioned in 1943 after the sinking of the
original carrier in the Battle of Coral Sea the
previous year, the current Lexington was
nicknamed "The Blue Ghost" because of her
bluish-grey color and the fact that she could not
be sunk. She was awarded twelve combat
ribbons during World War Two.
Today, the USS Lexington's primary mission is
to conduct carrier qualification landings and
launches for student and fleet naval aviators.
Since 1962, some 2,000 pilots earn their wings
annually after qualifying on the Lexington. To
date, the carrier has accomplished a "world
record", more than 456,000 arrest landings well
over 100,000 more than any other aircraft carrier.
Maneuvering slowly, into Berth 19 at Port
Everglades, the tug boats "clocked" Lexington
around in the harbor basin so the board crew was
able to toss a "monkey's fist" ashore to the

awaiting landing crew. The tennis ball sized knot
of line was attached to more line which was
joined to a larger rope till finally five inch
diameter shorelines were secured and adjusted in
a frenzy vaguely reminiscent of bouts with bow
and spring lines on a much smaller craft.
Passengers & Cargo up at Port in 1986
The Lexington wasn't the only activity at Port
Everglades lately. The world's second-busiest
cruise port reported more than half a million
passengers in 1986, an increase of more than 150
percent over the previous banner year, 1985.
A total of 560,586 passengers used the Port Last
year, compared with 230,000 in 1985.
The month of December was the busiest on
record for the Port, with 81,374 passengers,
breaking the one-month-old record of 70,000
passengers set in November. That figure was, in
itself, a 13,000 increase over the record of 57,000
passengers set in December of 1985.
A total of 362 port calls were made by cruise
vessels in 1986, or an average of nearly one a day.
A total of 24 different cruise vessels used the Port,
ranging in size from the 2,184 passenger
-CANBERRA to the 116-passenger Cunard SEA
Port Everglades also experienced a 6.7%
increase in cargo tonnage for 1986, including a
dramatic 29.1 percent increase in the amount of
container cargo it handled in comparison with
Roll On/Roll Off cargo was up 58.5 percent for
the year and bulk cargo increased 20 percent.

The purpose of this article is to discuss lung
overexpansion injuries. In this paper I have
included the different types of overexpansions
along with their symptoms and treatments. There
are four varieties of lung expansion injuries. All
of these injuries are considered serious medical
problems. They include air embolism,
pneumothorax, subcutaneous emphysema and
mediastinal emphysema. Air embolism
commonly viewed as the most dangerous of all
these disorders. These injuries can be avoided by
following one elementary rule regarding the use
of SCUBA. NEVER HOLD YOUR BREATH. As depth
increases so doesthe density of the air, therefore,

an increasing amount of molecules are packed
into each breath as the water pressure increases.
For example, at 99 feet, air density is four times
greater than it is at sea level. This means that four
times as many air molecules are pulled into the
lungs during a single breath. If a diver attempted
to surface from this depth without venting
his/her lungs, the gas would attempt to expand
four times greater than its volume at 99 feet. The
expanding air would then cause'an
overpressurization resulting in a lung rupture.
The phenomenon is the basis of Boyle's Law
which states that "the volume and pressure of a
gas is oppositely or inversely related to each
If an overexpansion has occurred the onset of
symptoms will normally be present within five
minutes of surfacing, if not sooner. Any person
rendered unconscious upon surfacing or shortly
after should be treated for lung overexpansion.
No matter what other obvious symptoms are
present, treat the victim for overexpansion.
Never rule out a lung injury until it has been put to
a physician's test. The emergency treatment for a
lung disorder is also appropriate for heart attack,

stroke and shock, therefore, no harm is done and
help is provided even if the problem is not diving
related. A person suspected to be suffering from
lung overexpansion should be administered
oxygen and treated for shock. Oxygen is
invaluable to victims of lung overexpansion
injuries, therefore, I do not recommend diving
from boats that are not oxygen equipped. The
modified Trendelenburg Position is suggested for
victims of diving accidents. In this position the
head is kept down with the feet elevated at a 300
angle and the entire body turned on its left side.
This position is to be used only if the victim is
breathing. If it is necessary to perform C.P.R. the
victim should be laid flat as this is necessary to
effectively perform C.P.R. At no time should oxygen
be discontinued. Even if the victim appears to be
improving, oxygen therapy should not be

discontinued as he/she may only be improving
due to the administering of oxygen. It is possible
that if oxygen is discontinued the victim's
condition could worsen.
The victim of a lung overexpansion injury
should be transported to the nearest medical
facility for patient stabilization and diagnosis. All
four afflictions require different treatment. Go to
a medical facility, not a recompression chamber.
Typically, air embolism is the only
overexpansion injury that requires
recompression. Unfortunately, air embolism
often accompanies other types of
overexpansions. This would constitute
recompression. Decompression sickness
accompanying any overexpansion injury would
also require recompression. Which specific injury
afflicts a victim depends upon the location of the
injury. At the conclusion of this article is a list of
the four typical lung disorders along with the
symptoms and treatments.
Lung overexpansion sometimes occur
unexpectedly even when proper breathing is
exercised. The cause of this phenomenon is air-
trapping. Lung infections, cysts, tumors and
mucous plugs can all predispose divers to lung
overexpansion disorders. Scar tissure from chest
surgery, radiation therapy and heavy smoking
can also produce air-trapping. Heavy smokers all
run a slightly higher risk of an inadvertent lung
It is very important to constantly be aware of
your breathing pattern. I cannot stress this
enough. Be especially careful while taking
photographs. Many cases of embolism have been
reported to have happened during the few
seconds it takes to snap a photo. If buoyancy
even slightly positive you may not realize that
you are ascending towards a lung disorder.
Divers should always attempt neutral buoyancy
during a dive. When a diver exerts a lot of energy,
such as when attempting to move heavy objects,
he tends to hold his breath. This is a normal body
reaction. It is especially important to monitor
breathing during these times.
In conclusion to this article I want to state that
lung overexpansion and its inadvertent cases are
rare. Diving is a safe low-risk sport. Learning to
dive from a competent sanctioned instructor will
keep it that way. I cannot stress this point
enough. If you are not certified don't dive. If you
are certified I strongly suggest continuing
education. Have a safe dive.
Free March 11th slide show reveals ocean marine secrets
A free slide presentation on "Observing Deep
Ocean Marine Life by Submersible" will be
featured at the March 11th meeting of the
American Littoral Society. Presented by marine
biologist Charles G. Messing, the program will
cover his research on the nature and behavior of
Caribbean deep water organisms, and the way in
which scientific use of submersibles is helping
solve the mysteries of survival in the ocean's
depths. Anyone interested in the enjoyment,
observation and protection of the marine
environment is invited to attend at7:30 p.m. in the
auditorium of the Rosenstiel School of Marine
Science on Key Biscayne, 75 Virginia Beach Drive.
