Cigarette smokers may be at the butt of beach pollution problem


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
If trash slips your mind or blows away when you fish at
the beach or float your boat to the shallows for a picnic, here
are things you should know: A cardboard box of frozen bait
is biodegradable, but ... So is the paper towel you wipe your
hands with, but ... A juice box, the core of your apple, loose
pages of this newspaper that the wind blows away, all break
down in time, on sand or in seawater.
But what? According to the Mote Marine Laboratory in
Sarasota, the bait box will last for two months, the paper
towel two to four weeks, the juice box three months, the
apple core two months, the newspaper six weeks plenty
of time for a bird or turtle to swallow them. There's a good
chance of that happening, and a bad chance of the creature-
consumer surviving many such meals.
Florida teems with organizations that try to save the
lives of creatures that eat our rubbish, which is abundant
because not enough people get the message from also-
numerous outfits that preach and educate against littering.
One such group is the Healthy Beaches Campaign, now
in its second year, with headquarters at Florida International
University. Its message is spreading nationwide as rapidly as
a three-person staff can make that happen.
Among staff members is Florida International
University coastal scientist Stephen P. Leatherman, better


known as "Dr. Beach." He's the guy whose ratings of the best
beaches appear often in Sunday newspaper travel sections,
magazines and other outlets, so he's good at getting attention
for a cause.
Dr. Beach is kicking butts on the beach. Cigarette butts,
that is. Kicking them off the beach isn't so easy.
Here's why: Smokers on beaches stub out their butts in
the sand. Sooner or later a bird picks up the filter tip, which
is made of cellulose acetate fibers, a form of plastic.
Sometimes the butt bobs away on the outgoing tide, where it
may interest a hungry turtle.
How long those things take to biodegrade, if they ever
do, isn't known to the Mote Marine Laboratory, which sup-
plied the above data.
Leatherman keeps a running list of recognized healthy
beaches on his website. Who recognizes them? He does. It's
pretty effective because most beaches are managed by pub-
lic park agencies in cities, counties and states where beaches
are economically important tourist attractions. That's why
most are pretty well cared for, why the overflowing trash
bins of Sunday evening look almost clean enough to eat out
of by Tuesday.
If beaches meet certain criteria and their managers pay a
$500 membership fee to support the program, they are eligi-
ble to post signs saying they're not only recognized as


healthy, but certified too. Florida has 29. Georgia, South
Carolina and Michigan have one each while Hawaii has eight.
Leatherman has inspected them personally. He spent the
past summer getting sand in his shoes along Lake Erie and
beaches in New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan. It's
a tough job, but his sunscreen costs are tax-deductible.
A dirty beach damages the local economy. If you're in
charge of beaches in an area where they're economically
important, at the very least you want yours on Dr. Beach's
list of recognized healthy beaches.
It's especially so in Florida, say Leatherman and Minka
McDonald, his campaign manager and information coordi-
nator. They've given healthy beach recognition to nearly all
Florida beaches, and most are likely to earn certification if
they seek it.
Earning one of those listings is one thing keeping it
another. It takes expensive, labor-intensive litter pickup. The
worst litter? That's easy.
"The number one thing is cigarette butts," McDonald
says. "People have greatly caught on to plastic bags and are
disposing of them properly but cigarette butts, people have
not caught on to that yet. It not only looks gross but they get
in the water and marine animals mistake them for food and
they die."

Hallandale takes first steps to becoming more boater-friendly


City applies for grants to
build first public marina
By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
Construction could start next summer on Hallandale-
Beach's first public marina.
City officials applied in October for state and county
grants for funds to build the facility on a long, narrow two-
acre strip of land along the Intracoastal Waterway, behind
a fire station on Three Islands Boulevard, just north of
Hallandale Beach Boulevard.
Applying for grants is one of two steps that city com-
missioners have recently taken toward making their com-
munity more boater-friendly. The other has been the cre-
ation of a seven-member marine advisory committee.
City commissioners are in the process of accepting
applications from interested residents who wish to serve,
said City Manager Mike Good.
Both the marina and marine advisory committee will
add to the city's quality of life, he said.'
Although Hallandale Beach already has several pri-
vate and commercial marinas, a public facility will allow
the city to offer another recreational amenity to its resi-
dents and visitors, he said.

S"It's a definite plus," said Mayor Joy Cooper. "It
sends a message outthat we are boat-friendly."
Plans call for the city's marina to offer about 30 slips.
"We would like for our residents to take preference, but it
would be open to boaters outside the city," Good said.
There will be no dockage for liveaboards, he said.
Hallandale Beach city officials expect to hear whether
they have secured the funding within the next three
months, Good said.
All totaled, the city is seeking $360,000in grants and
expects to kick in between $50,000 to $60,000 from its
own coffers. One of the requests, for a Broward County
Boating Improvement Program grant, could provide the
city with up to $180,000.
If the grant monies come through, construction will
probably start in the summer, 2004. The amount of fund-
ing awarded will determine if the city hires an outside firm
to build the marina or does the job in-house, Good said.
The marine advisory committee would have input on
the marina, as well as other waterway-related concerns.
Their tasks would include organizing waterway
cleanup, reviewing wake zones and environmental issues

come through, construction

and assisting with grant applications.
Most importantly, the committee would bring the
city's boating community together, Good said.
One of the issues that Cooper said she wants commit-
tee members to review is the city's unrestricted wake
zone.
"We lost a lot of our resident boaters," she said. "It's
25 mph and it impacts people's ability to keep their boats
behind their condominiums and homes. One of things we
want to take up with the advisory committee is to look at
wake zone and promote safer areas for people to keep
their boats."
Cooper was former secretary of a yacht club in the
city's Golden Isles community. The club disbanded
when its commodore, George Tarmett, died two years
ago, she said.
"He always wanted the advisory committee estab-
lished," Cooper said. "I'm happy that we are moving for-
ward with this."

Wildlife often mistakes discarded cigarette butts for food


Cigarette butts are debris number one in the Ocean
Conservancy's annual one-day International Coastal
Cleanup. Volunteers picked up and counted 1,640,614 butts
and filter tips in the 2002 project That was 26.2 percent of all
the trash they tabulated. Data for this year's project haven't
been tabulated yet.
The butt numbers are impressive, considering all the
scolding that goes on about that stuff. According to the
National Center For Chronic Disease Prevention and Health
Promotion: "Plastic cigarette filters are often ingested by
wildlife, causing adverse-health effects for fish, birds, whales,
and other marine creatures."
Though it makes sense that nicotine and other sub-
stances in filter tips cause some degree of harm to a creature
that eats them, there doesn't appear to be much scientific
documentation, even on the Interet.
Jennifer Sevin, executive director of the Officer Snook

Butts into bait?
Smokers can kick butts off the beaches by keeping
theirs in a pocketsize plastic bag, to be dumped later in a
proper trash container. Smokers who fish can do some-
thing much better: turn butts into bait by recycling them as
artificial flies.
No kidding. Jack Gartside, a Boston fly inventor,
found undigested cigarette filters in the tummies of trout
he caught long ago in Yellowstone National Park "prob-
ably picked up and eaten when they came across a filter
discarded by a fisherman on the stream, he says on his
website. "Why they did this was a mystery to me."
With the creativity that would make him a near leg-
end in fly-fishing, Gartside began experimenting.
Eventually he developed the Filter Fly, made with the
stained cellulose acetate fibers of picked-apart filter tips.
Find out how by visiting Gartside's website,
hntp://\ww.jackgartside.com/ Page down once and enter
the word filter in the search space.
If you don't tie flies, try impaling a filter tip on a lit-
tle hook. That's been known to catch rainbow trout.
Maybe it will work on other fish.

water pollution program, explained what can happen to a bird
or turtle that eats a lot of filter tips.
"They would make an animal more buoyant. That would
deter a bird from diving or getting away from predators."
But Wendy Fox, rehabilitation manager at Pelican
Harbor Seabird station in Miami, said filter tips are not rou-
tinely found in the bodies of birds examined there.
Jennifer Hartwig, a marine biologist who directs educa-
tion programs for the national Save The Sea Turtle
Foundation in Fort Lauderdale, asked a turtle doctor who said
he doesn't often see filter-swallowing cases.
Dr. K. Michael Cumiings of the Roswell Park Cancer
Institute in Buffalo, NY, recounted an experiment with a
mouse and filter fibers.
"A study conducted by a colleague of mine at Roswell
Park tested to see what would happen if the fibers were
planted in the belly of mouse," he said. "The inhaled or
ingested fibers provide concentrated dosing of tar which con-
tains some nasty chemicals, metals, etc."
It's well known that leatherback sea turtles mistake plas-
tic bags for jellyfish, their favorite food, and that the bags
block the animals' digestive tracts. It's harder to guess what
trash is mistaken for food by other turtle species.
Hartwig guesses turtles mistake cigarette filters for food
as they do any other garbage, even though it doesn't resem-
ble anything in their usual diets. Ask a turtle what a filter tip
looks like to him, and you won't learn much.
"Sea turtles are wild animals, so sometimes understand-'
.ing why they might do something is beyond our comprehen-
sion," Hartwig said. '"Turtles are not able to reason like we
are, so they do not actually go through the thought processes
that we would, identifying garbage from food."
Even though cigarette-butt swallowings are scarce in sci-
entific literature, there is reason to object to their careless dis-
posal anyplace, including the beach.
In California, the butt problem is so bad that the City
Council of Solana Beach, near San Diego, voted in October
to ban smoking on its beaches. Bird safety doesn't seem to be
an issue as much as aesthetics. "We don't have much beach
left, but at least we can keep it from becoming an ashtray."
said lMaor Tom Golich. Solana Beach has about a mile and
a half of beach.
That's the first cit. in the Golden State to take such

action. No bandwagon so far, but the same town was first in
California to ban smoking in restaurants. That was in 1992,
and three years later smoking in restaurants was illegal in the
whole state.
If you look for the beach least littered with butts, you'll
probably find the worst beach in the country, one where
nobody goes because it's so disgusting for other reasons.
Dr. Beach's nomination?
"Border Field State Park, near San Diego. The Tijuana
River flows through it with sewage, Tijuana sewage. It's a
huge problem. California didn't generate the waste but it's
got to deal with it. They found a couple of million dollars to
redirect some of that sewage. It helped, but not enough to
open the beaches. You don't fish there, you don't swim."
In 1999, Leatherman published a list of the 10 worst
beaches in the country. Border Field was worst of all.
"I had calls from the mayor's office in San Diego," he
said. "They asked me 'What are you trying to do? Destroy
our tourism?'"

Wanted: anglers to influence Biscayne Bay preservation plan


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
Everyone who fishes, cruises, or explores the shores and
keys of southern Biscayne Bay has an opportunity in
December to influence a plan that's meant to protect
Biscayne National Park and to keep their own access to
favorite areas for the next 15 to 20 years.
Those who don't participate risk a disappointing out-
come influenced by others. The park's challenge is to create
a general management plan that's fair to environmental and
recreational interests, which are likely to collide at times.
Preliminary alternative plans being offered for public
reaction are sure to be controversial. Here are some examples:
Four of the five draft proposals would designate two of
the four Arsenicker keys as "sensitive resources," encircled
by off-limits boundaries 500 feet wide, effectively closing
many acres of bonefish flats that are among Florida's best.
As a peace-and-quiet concession to canoe and kayak
paddlers, some proposals include prohibition of combustion
engines in big zones, including a strip 1,000 feet wide along
nearly all the park's mainland shoreline. It's an idle speed,
no-wake zone now. To fish there, you'd need a push pole and
an electric trolling motor, but those only work well with a
flats boat's shallow draft and low freeboard.
In the most restrictive version, that strip would be as
wide as two nautical miles. The same proposal would close
the "safety valve" shoals to engines from Stiltsville all the way
south to Boca Chita Key, a distance of seven nautical miles.
Other alternatives map out large areas where no one
could go without a permit- one including a zone reaching
from the Turkey Point power plant to the park's southern
boundary and east to the Intracoastal Waterway channel.
That would include all the Arsenickers. Another permit zone
is proposed for a stretch of two and a half nautical miles on
the inshore side of Elliott Key, still another for Black Ledge
in the park's northwest comer.
None of the propositions would govern commercial
fishing none even mention it leaving Biscayne as the
only national park where that's allowed.
There are inconsistencies. One plan designates only
two of the Arsenickers as sensitive resources. Another desig-
nates Swan Key, most of Totten Key, the two Sandwiclitove
islands and part of Sands Key in addition to the Arsenicker.
Still another designates all of Sands and adds Soldier Key.
This prompts skeptical questions: Which of those islands
really are sensitive resources? Which ones really aren't?


UFflnfg7'


A general management plan now being developed
proposes engine-free zones in several large areas where
the sort of peace and quiet evoked here can be enjoyed
by paddlers.
The five alternatives range from number one, making.no
changes at all, to number five, which curtails public access to
large portions of the park. That one seems to have no chance
of public acceptance, but illustrates what could happen,
imaginably, if fishers and boaters blow off Park
Superintendent Linda Canzanelli's invitation to participate in
the planning.
She and her staff will appear at three public meetings (see
info box) to hear criticism and ideas and to answer questions.
The Park Service has a "preliminary preferred" plan,
Alternative Four, but Canzanelli's detailed newsletter on the
project emphasizes that it's just one of four drafts for public
discussion, not a plan already etched in stone. She asks the
public to let the Park Service know what they like and dislike
about any of the plans, and whether anything important has
been overlooked.
"A final preferred alternative will be developed once we
have considered your comments on these five alternatives,"
she says in the newsletter. "It may be a new alternative that
includes elements from several of the alternatives, or include
ideas we have not shown."
If you attend one of the meetings, will your input be
taken.seriously? In previous sessions and surveys, a process
that began in January 2001, Canzanelli and the Biscayne staff
have listened and shown a willingness to modify proposals in
response to public reaction.
EricVanDemark, a Homestead fishing guide, plans to
attend. His view is that if you don't go, or if you fail to offer

your written observations (deadline: Feb. 6), you shouldn't
holler when the plan's finished and you hate it.
"The only way we'll be able to have our voices heard is
to go to the meetings, respectfully and professionally give our
opinions, and be willing to compromise," VanDemark says.
He's going to copy a map of the park and draw in mod-
ified no-combustion zones that make more sense to him.
He'll include features he thinks are best from the two alter-
natives he likes most, number two and number four. He'll try
to convince Canzanelli that permit-only zones are a bad idea
- unwieldy and possibly impossible to administer in a way
that's fair to guides like him and non-professional local
anglers like you.
"I make my living at this," he said. "Does it mean I get a
permit and you don't? That you get it and I don't? Suppose I
have a client who tells me he's coming in next April and
wants to do some bone fishing. I'm not going to be able to
tell him I'm able to book him, because maybe I do or don't
get that permit."
One of the easiest restrictions to accept is prohibition of
combustion engines on the east half of the Featherbeds, a
large and shallow bank of sand and grass flats bisected by
the Intracoastal Waterway channel. Except for the altema-
tive of leaving everything as is, all the plans impose an
engine ban there.
Artful placement of edge markers outlining that zone
could prevent accidental groundings, common on the
Featherbeds. Much worse than that, the portion east of the
channel looks something like your lawn might look if street
traffic were diverted across it for a few weeks. There's vivid
evidence that boaters often blunder into too-thin water and
try to plane across rather than drift or drag their vessels to
deeper water.
The mistake is made often by boaters with poor navigat-
ing or chart-reading skills, going to or from Boca Chita Key.
That's the island with the little lighthouse, the yacht
basin and facilities for picnics and camping. It's usually

To the Editor:
Folks, an interesting question came up
at last night's Coast Guard Auxiliary's boat-
ing safety class. We know the right side
(facing forward) of a vessel is the starboard
because the "steer board" on the old Viking
ships was on that side, and therefore the left
side was against the dock or "port side."
The question during the class was,
"why is the red light on the left and the


green light on the right instead of the
other way around?"
I can't find the answer in any of my
books, and so I thought I would throw it
out to some,of our old salts and retired
Navy types. Does anyone know for sure
why the navigation lights are this way, or
is it "just cause that's the way it is"?

Oscar misidentified in column's photo
To the Editor:.
Although the real point of angling is
not the record book, the fishing article
about oscar fishing (October 2003) was
an interesting and informative one.
However, the photo accompanying the
story shows- the angler and guide with a
peacock bass (Cichla ocellaris), not an s
oscar (Astronotus ocellatus).
This would be like picturing a large-
mouth bass and calling it a bluegill sun-
fish, and it misleads readers not already
familiar with these two exotic South
American fish introduced into southern
Florida waters.
Dr. Frederick Cichocki
Curator of Natural History Correction: A photo of a peacock bass in
The Graves Museum of the October issue was misidentified as
an oscar. Pictured here is Waterfront
Archeology and Natural History News fishing columnist Arnold Markowitz
Dania Beach with the actual record-breaking oscar.

Miracles of miracles have consequences in the maritime world


Even worse, if Noah could pass that legal obstacle,
there's the issue of all those animals. Certainly, in this
society where modem sensibilities prevent a person from
keeping a single tiger in an apartment, it is very doubtful
that Noah would be legally permitted to bring to one loca-
tion a breeding pair of every land animal on the planet.
There would also be major concerns about Noah's
ability to care for all these animals, especially the endan-
gered species. And, once again, he'd have to address con-
cerns about all those animals coming together and creat-
ing an ecological hazard for the surrounding community.
Which brings us to the-legal complications of Jonah
and the whale. True, actual scripture describes the crea-
ture that swallowed Jonah and kept him in its belly for


three days and nights, as a "great fish." But, if such a crea-
ture was not a whale, I'm sure modem statute would give
this animal the same status as marine mammals leading to
legal problems for Jonah.
Most modem states have very stringent laws about the
disturbing or the annoying of marine mammals without
advance permission, even if the encounter might not be
completely intentional. So it is very likely that once he
was released from the creature, Jonah would have had to
defend himself against heavy fines and jail time for hav-
ing annoyed the poor animal in the first place.
Even if the above-described cases are the work of a
higher power, historically this has never proven to be an


effective legal defense even when it comes to miracles.
However, all things considered, perhaps we shouldn't
be too dismayed that we don't get to see those grand scale
miracles of biblical proportions. After all, many of them
did not result in very happy consequences for the witness-
es.
The fact is, keeping the faith with our friends and our
families, and remaining on good terms with our neighbors
regardless of the season or the law, probably is the best of
miracles.
Happy holidays!

Lauderdale.

Is it a boat, is it a plane ... no, it's the 'Partridge Family' bus


Holiday parade entry to honor
popular '70s singing sitcom
By BILL HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
When the annual Winterfest Boat Parade sails along the
Intracoastal on Dec. 13, one of the entries cheered by crowds
won't really be a watercraft at all.
Baby boomers will likely recognize the 48-foot "bus"
decorated to resemble "The Partridge Family" bus as a
salute to parade grand marshal David Cassidy, the teen idol
who starred on the hit early 1970s TV sitcom.
"It was a natural this year to come up with this idea and
it's been a lot of fun for us to pull it together," said Rob
Komahrens, whose craft will be in the parade for the seventh
time since 1995. "We hope all those watching will get the
same thrill we've had in creating the entry."
Actually it wasn't too much of a stretch to decorate the
Partridge bus because the Komahrens' craft is a bus a 40-
foot former Broward County Transit vehicle retired years
ago to get a second shot as a floating craft.
About 12 years ago the Broward agency placed the bus
on a custom designed boat frame so it could be a parade
entry in the annual holiday event. But in 1992 the county
decided to put the former bus up for sale. A local business-
man bought it to turn into a floating restaurant but aban-
doned the idea because of the amount of governmental reg-
ulations involved in the project.
"When I joined the Winterfest board in 1995, someone
suggested the idea of finding the bus again, so I went out and
bought it," Komahrens said.
He used it to promote his company, Advanced Roofing,
Inc. in the Winterfest parade.
Over the years the boat has been redesigned as a giant
sleight with reindeer, a pirate ship, a "Yellow Submarine"
salute to the Beatles, and a September 11 memorial of fire-

Beach boat parades in mid December.

fighters raising the flag over the World Trade Center site.
It's taken an outpouring of funds and a lot of work for
the Kornahrens family, which also includes Rob
Korahrens' wife, Deborah, and son, Mike, 20, a Florida
Atlantic University student. Also helping out is family
friend Rick Gunvaldsen, 17.
After docking the craft at a Pompano Beach marina in
early November, the crew began to revamp the bus-boat in
the image of the school bus used on the "Partridge Family"
series. The family found a Hallmark Christmas tree orna-
ment that lookedjust like the bus and they used it as a model.
"We rebuilt the front of the bus and added new siding to
create the right shape," said'Mike Komahrens. Then they
painted the craft in psychedelic colors. Over 750 laser lights
will illuminate the bus along the parade route.
A live band aboard during the event will play Partridge
Family songs. Over 25 participants will don 1970s clothing.


"Every year when we get through with the parade, we
say that's it and we won't do it again," Rob Komahrens said.
"But then we get all excited again when December starts to
roll around."
But the family has eased up by not entering every year.
They did not participate in the 2000 and 2002 parades.
"Every other year is enough," said Deborah Komahrens.
The bus-boat has won top awards in the Winterfest and
Pompano Beach holiday parades. This year's Partridge-
themed entry will appear in the Winterfest parade on
Saturday, Dec. 13 and in the Pompano Beach Holiday Boat
Parade the next night on Dec. 14.
This year's Winterfest theme is "Once Upon A Time,"
with Cassidy aboard the grand marshal boat, which will be
preceded by the Komahrens' craft.
Cassidy lives in Fort Lauderdale with his wife, Susan, a
songwriter. Recently he toured in a "Rat Pack is Back" show.

Chamber hands control of Boca parade to marine industry group


By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
After 27 years, the Greater Boca Raton Chamber of
Commerce has stepped down as organizer of the Boca Raton
Holiday Boat Parade.
Getting the procession afloat is now the responsibility of
the Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County,
which is working in partnership with the City of Boca Raton.
Chamber president M.J. Arts said the decision not to
continue organizing the Boca Raton parade was due to dwin-
dling attendance. Participation over the years has dropped
from a high of 70 to 15 vessels, he said.
"We had problems signing up boaters," Arts said.
"We didn't have the access. It was time for someone else
to step up."
The chamber is pleased that the marine industries asso-
ciation has come forward, he said.
Taking over the Boca Raton procession will mean dou-
ble duty for the association. The group is also.organizing the
Holiday Boat Parade of the Palm Beaches.
The Boca Raton parade takes place Dec. 20. Boats will
depart from the C-15 canal on the Boca Raton-Delray Beach
line. Entries will head south along the Intracoastal, then make
a U-turn just before the Hillsboro-Bridge in Deerfield Beach.
The Holiday Boat Parade of the Palm Beaches sets sail
on Dec. 6 from Peanut Island, north along the Intracoastal
Waterway to Jonathan's Landing Marina in Jupiter.


Amy Tolderlund, committee chair for both parades, said
the association is using its contacts to increase participation
in the Boca Raton procession.
"We're a marine organization and we thought it was a
logical match for us to step in and keep the parade going,"
said Tolderlund, who works as office manager for Sea Tow,
a marine towing company.
One of the ways to boost involvement has been for Sea
Tow's captains to talk with boaters and hand out parade
applications, she said.


So far, the response has been very good, Tolderlund
said.
Organizers are hoping their efforts result in a large turn
out. Tolderlund stresses that people considering entering
either or both of the parades shouldn't fret about how many
lights or decorations they have on their boats.
"The idea is to come out and have fun," she said. "We
get people who put a few strings of lights on the boat and
they have just as good a time as the ones who build the big,
exotic displays."

Historian's boat tours brine Stiltsville closer to home


U71


By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
This is one in a series of special features exploring
South Florida's waterfront landmarks. This month's
feature takes a look at Stiltsville, a well-known cluster
of wooden structures located in Biscayne Bay.

KEY BISCAYNE Having the best waterfront view
may be a dream of many South Floridians, but seven tracts
have locations no one else can match right in the middle
of Biscayne Bay.
It's known as Stiltsville of course, seven unique hous-
es each perched high above the middle of Biscayne Bay
with views to die for.
"There's nothing else quite like it," said Dr. Paul
George, a noted Florida historian who regularly conducts
boat tours of the water community through the Historical
Museum of Southern Florida.
"At it's peak in the mid-1960s, there were 27 homes
on stilts, while storms and other factors have reduced the
number down to only seven," he said during a recent tour.
Talking to a crowd of tourists aboard a two-decker

sightseeing boat cruising the bay, George recently detailed
how Stiltsville came about and speculated on where it
might be heading. As the chief tour guide for the museum,
he has led a wide range of tours for years, but the
Biscayne Bay floating neighborhood of houses is one of


the most unusual.
"It all started back in the 1920s when a guy by the
nickname of Crawfish Eddie opened a bake shop at the end
of Key Biscayne," he explained. It seemed that Eddie's

Two alternative proposals have little chance of prevail-

adding any protection for its vulnerable, often delicate
resources. And it's tempting to regard Alternative Five,
which would grossly diminish access to the park's most
appealing parts, as a red herring meant only to exhibit a
worst-case scenario.

business began to flourish so he decided to build a home in
the 1930s and opted to do it on a sunken barge located off
the island's coast. One home led to another and in 1940, a
large gambling hall was built using sunken barges.
The community of structures began to grow with old
sunken wooden boats enlisted for the foundation.
After World War II, the industrious homeowners opted
to have stronger foundations and sank pilings into the bay
to allow the building of more permanent properties.
By 1965, Stiltsville reached its cap of 27 homes in all
sizes and shapes, with most of the structures clustered in
the middle if the bay, the tip of Key Biscayne to the east
and Matheson Hammock Park to the west. Water has had
to be brought in and power created through generators.
In 1965 when a strong Hurricane Betsy blew its way
through the bay many of the structures were damaged or
destroyed. When Hurricane Andrew swept through in
1992, only 13 homes remained in its path. After the storm,
that number was cut almost in half.
Over the years, the homes have gone from serving as
private one-family houses to multi-family "party houses"
frequented on weekends or special occasions. Some of the
structures were turned into private clubs, George said, such
as the Bikini Club, which became a swinging singles spot.
When Biscayne National Park expanded in 1980 to
encompass Stiltsville, the homeowners signed leases with
the state that all expired on July 1, 1999. At that time, the

Park Service had planned to demolish the homes.
As the date approached, the leaseholders took
the Park Service and state to court to hang on to their
unique properties.
"It was a long, nasty fight and lots of people got
involved in it," George explained.
The Park Service agreed to allow the homes to stay with
the provision that if more than 50 percent of the structure was
damaged in a storm, the whole would structure be demolished.
The homes are now in the public domain, meaning
their future is in the hands of the Park Service and their
use may eventually switch from private party houses to a
more public use.
"There's no other place in the nation quite like this
and it would be a shame to see it go," George said. He said
some of the remaining seven homes are being repaired and
lived in, while others have been boarded up.
During the tour, workmen could be seen on some of
the sites making upgrades. In others residents casually
casted fishing lines down to the water below.
George, a Miami-Dade Community College professor
who has been offering tours for nearly two decades, will
host three trips to Stiltsville, the next on March 28 and
May 15.
Tour goers are treated not only to the historical details

of the unique houses, but also interesting tidbits of info on
Key Biscayne, Virginia Key, the Miami coastline and more.
He starts talking the moment the Island Queen tour
boat leaves Bayfront Park and doesn't stop until three
hours later when it returns.
Snippets of the talk:
"That high-rise condo over there is the largest residen-
tial complex south of Manhattan...Miami's wastewater
treatment plant on Virginia Key handles 130 million gal-
lons of water a day...That 70-floor office building is the
tallest structure south of Atlanta...Fisher Island is the rich-
est community per capital in the county and Miami, only
three miles away, is the poorest with 37 percent of its pop-
ulation living below the poverty level," George explains.
"I enjoy sharing as much information as I can and
really appreciate that people take such an interest in these
trips," he said. More than 1,500 people visit Stiltsville
each year just on George's trips.
Many local residents and tourists participate in other
tours by the Historical Museum such as the Miami River
boat tour, Lincoln Road bike tour, Coconut Grove walking
tour, Ocean Drive art deco walk, Hollywood art deco walk
and others.

Alluring Amelia Island prompts kayaking, long strolls


By TERRY CONWAY
Waterfront News Writer
Framed in Old Florida palmettos and Spanish moss-
draped live oaks, Amelia Island's Walker Landing is
home to snowy egrets, blue herons and the ever-popular
"Crab Grab." Kids dangle fishing strings wrapped with
'chunks of pork into a lagoon hoping to pull out a blue crab
or two.
Amelia Island, 13 miles of beaches, palms and sand
dunes located northeast of Jacksonville, is separated from
Georgia only by the Cumberland Sound, Florida's north-
ernmost barrier island that resembles Georgia's Golden
Isles more than Florida in climate and lifestyle.
Claimed by the French, fought over by the Spanish
and christened for the royal daughter of England's King
George II, Amelia Island is the only territory in the U.S. to
be ruled under eight flags of sovereignty in its 400 years.
It was prized as the deepest natural harbor in the
South and has been a playground for everyone from blue-
bloods to bootleggers and buccaneers. Through its histo-
ry, Amelia has been cast as an English plantation, inter-
national port, Civil War fortress, the site of Florida's first
cross-state railroad and headquarters for shrimping.
The Atlantic and saltwater marshes make Amelia an
ideal setting for natural tours, as guides lead wildflower
expeditions, kayaking excursions, horseback rides on the
beach and biking and hiking jaunts through the "Sunken
Forest," where a walkway leads through a mysterious,
wind-sculpted forest of live oak between dunes.
Loggerhead turtles and the northern right whale visit the
island each spring to bear their young.
A wide variety of both fresh and saltwater species can
be found in the many brackish back bays and rivers
around the island. Sportfishing boats head out from
Fernandina Harbor Marina for backwater charters in
search of largemouth bass, redfish, sea trout, stripers and
flounder. Blue water vessels troll for dolphin, wahoo, sail-
fish, marlin, barracuda, cobia, grouper, red snapper, black
sea bass and kingfish.
The island's only town is Fernandina Beach, once a
vibrant 19th century seaport village. Centre Street, the


Many Amelia Island
structures are listed
on the National Register
of Historic Places, some
housing rare art and
antiques. Horse-drawn
tours are a popular
activity through the
town's historic district.


Upm


main thoroughfare, leads to a marina adjacent to a fishing
pier overlooking the Atlantic. The Civil War-era street is
lined with palmetto trees, old brick storefronts that house
everything from sidewalk caf6s to specialty shops and art
galleries. There are also 450 ornate Victorian homes and
buildings that went up during the island's "Golden Age."
From 1875 to 1900, well-heeled tourists from Washington
to New York came to visit on elegant steamers.
The Silk Stocking district, a collection of pastel-hued
Victorian mansions, arose along side streets. Today struc-
tures on more than 50 blocks of downtown are listed on


the National Register of Historic Places. The Amelia
Island Williams House is a lovely 140-year-old stately
antebellum mansion, the only one of its kind on the island.
It houses a fine collection of rare art and antiques includ-
ing the dressing gown belonging to the last Emperor of
China. The 1876 Addison House has recently been
restored and boasts a garden with fountains designed for
listening and viewing.
In the historic district you'll find antique shops, bou-
tiques, restaurants, outdoor cafes, and bars. The Palace
Saloon built in 1878 (reportedly the oldest bar in the state)
remains one of the area's favorite waterholes. Adorned
with a 40-foot mahogany bar and hand-painted murals,

THE FIRST NAME IN MARINE ELECTRIC
IS REALLY A FIRST NAME


Over 53 years ago, a young electrician named Ward
Eshleman was determined to set new standards for
marine electric service. Little did Ward know how big a
dream he would live to realize. Today Ward's Marine
Electric is the most respected name in the yachting
world. Our parts inventory is inexhaustible, and the
Ward's team of world-class ABYC certified electricians
continue to set new standards of technical proficiency.
However Ward II hasn't forgotten his father's ways, and
remains on a first name basis with our customers.
And the third generation is equally determined to
continue the family tradition of reliability. And of keep-
ing things down to earth... no matter how big our
operation and reputation becomes around the world.

Amelia Island strives for history, charm, natural beauty


W>'i4irhI1HNll;'lIiaM
the Palace is the former haunt of the Carnegies and
Rockefellers.
Nearly 80 percent of Florida's intake of sweet
Atlantic white shrimp is harvested from Amelia's waters.
Fernandina Beach's shrimping industry initiated the evo-
lution from casts to otter trawls, from rowboats to fleets of
motorized vehicles. Two million pounds of shrimp are
delivered to Femandina docks annually.
Visitors will find plenty of shrimp dishes at Brett's
Waterway Caf6, where patrons can dine outdoors on the
deck overlooking the Ferandina Harbor Marina. The
Beech Street Grill is a gingerbread-trimmed sea captain's
estate with tiered wraparound verandas and a series of
side annexes that hold a ramble of dining rooms set offin
peach and green. Look for the Low Country seafood
gumbo, crab-stuffed local shrimp with tasso
ham gravy, grouper encrusted with macadamia nuts,
and grilled duck breast with ancho chile and tropical
fruit salsa.
The Southern Tip is housed in one of the Southern-
style structures in the Palmetto Walk shopping complex, a
good bet for lunch. It offers an intimate bar and down-
stairs dining room and a larger dining room upstairs. The
Cuban sandwich roasted pork loin with spiced cheese
