Washington's regatta honors traditional sailing craft


BY BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
COCONUT GROVE The Washington's Birthday
Regatta is more than a race. It brings a bit of history to life on
Biscayne Bay.
The event, entering its 13th year on Saturday, Feb. 23,
commemorates an outing first organized by Coconut Grove
pioneer Ralph Munroe in 1887. To honor the original regatta,
participation is open only to traditional design vessels.
"It's a very nice nostalgic and peaceful day," said
Kendra Brennan, who co-chairs the regatta with hus-
band, David.
The couple are members of the Biscayne BayYacht Club,
which hosts the race with The Barnacle Historic State Park
and its volunteer auxiliary, The Barnacle Society. Boats will
set sail between 11 a.m. and noon from the park, at 3485 Main
Highway in the Grove's downtown district.
From there, vessels will head out into the bay to compete
in three heats on a triangle-shaped course.
Keeping the event limited to s.cai ohli\ craft of tradi-
tional design such as Mud Hens, Sea Pearls, Bullseyes,
Bahama dinghies and gaff rigs, honors the regatta's roots
and the strong role that sailing played in the community,
say organizers.
"Sailing was very important to the early settlers,
Brennan said. "Coconut Grove was a wilderness. It was the
easiest mode of transportation."
The race draws about 15 entries from throughout
Florida including a few renovated antique vessels. But
the majority are reproductions, including some made
of fiberglass.
Among the returning vessels will be The Egret, a 28-foot
Sharpie built in the 1980s, replicating one of Munroe's
designs. The boat is docked at the park, a five-acre site where
Munroe lived with his family.
His house, constructed in 1891, is the oldest residence
still in its original location in Miami-Dade County. Munroe, a
sailing yacht designer, is recognized as one of Coconut
Grove's founders.

The Egret, a replica of one of Ralph Munroe's earliest boat designs, appears in the Washington's Birthday Regatta
every year. It is owned by The Barnacle Historic State Park.


The modernized version of his regatta helps create more
public interest in The Barnacle, said Katrina Boler, park man-
ager.
"It's not a true re-creation, it's a commemoration," Boler
said. "It's an awareness building program."
The regatta includes a dinner and awards ceremony,
held at the park for captains, crews and their families. Some
sail and come to the banquet in period-style clothing, giving
the festivities an even more authentic air, said Kimberly
Good, a park services specialist at The Barnacle.


The regatta is one of two events held in February that
honors Munroe's contributions to the community.
A chowder party, commemorating the Biscayne Bay
Yacht Club's founding by Munroe, is traditionally held on
Washington's Birthday. The potluck dinner centers around the
club's traditional fish chowder recipe, Brennan said.

Florida treasure hunters wage legal battle with Spanish government


Shipwreck estimated to be
the richest ever discovered
BY MITCH STACY
Associated Press Writer
TAMPA (AP) The playground legal principle
"Finders keepers, losers weepers" is being put to the test in an
international dispute over what could be the richest sunken
treasure ever found: 17 tons of silver coins brought up from a
centuries-old shipwreck.
A Florida treasure-hunting company, Odyssey Marine
Exploration, found the wreck at the bottom of the Atlantic
and argues that the age-old law of the high seas entitles the
finders to most or all of the booty, said to be worth around
$500 million.
But the government of Spain suspects the ship was
Spanish and says it has never expressly abandoned any of its
vessels lost at sea. The kingdom has made it clear that if the


treasure does have some connection to Spain, it wants every
last coin returned.
The case is being closely watched, because there could be
more disputes like it, now that sonar, remote-control sub-
mersible robots and deep-sea video are enabling treasure
hunters like Odyssey to find ships that went to the bottom cen-
turies ago and were written off as unrecoverable because no
could even imagine finding anything so far beneath the waves.
"The question is, just because you're the first one out
there to get it, should you get to keep it especially if it
belongs to someone else?" said James Delgado, director of
the Institute of Nautical Archaeology at Texas A&M
University and a critic of commercial treasure hunters.
For now, the spoils some 500,000 coins, enough to fill
552 plastic buckets is in Odyssey's possession, tucked
away in a warehouse somewhere in Tampa.
Odyssey created a worldwide sensation with the
announcement of the find in May but has so far declined to


identify the wreck, its location (except to say it was found in
international waters) or even what kind of coins were recov-
ered, for fear of plunderers. Instead, the shipwreck was given
a code name: Black Swan.
Soon after the discovery was announced, Spain's
Washington-based attorney, James Goold, went to federal
court in Tampa and slapped claims on three Atlantic wreck
sites to which Odyssey had been granted exclusive salvage
rights under maritime law.
Spain temporarily seized the company's ships last sum-
mer, and the Spanish media have portrayed the Americans as
buccaneers plundering the nation's cultural heritage.
On June 6, El Pais, Spain's biggest newspaper, ran an edi-
torial headlined "Pirates of the 21st Century."
"Almost as if we're back to the times of corsairs and free-
booters, the new pirates of this century continue to besiege our
galleons despite the fact they have been lying at the bottom of

Exhibit highlights African Americans' swimming feats


BY BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
FORT LAUDERDALE By exploring the African
Diaspora's rich aquatic accomplishments, a new exhibit
being unveiled in mid-February seeks to turn around the
misconceptions surrounding blacks and swimming.
"Black Splash: The Amazing History of Swimming in
Black and White" is a first effort for the International
Swimming Hall of Fame. It is one of two displays in Fort
Lauderdale timed to appear during Black History Month
that highlights the celebrations and struggles of African-
Americans involved in gaining equal access to public
recreational facilities and the sport.
"Separated Waters Black Beaches in South
Florida" runs through Feb. 29 at the Old Dillard Museum,
at 1009 NW Fourth St., Fort Lauderdale.
The intent behind both shows is to explode the myth
that "blacks can't swim." An objective is to instill pride

and inspire more African-American children to become
involved in water-based activities, said Bruce Wigo, CEO
at the hall of fame.
A special multimedia presentation will mark "Black
Splash's" Tuesday, Feb. 19 debut, featuring Wigo and
Sabir Muhammad, an African-American swimmer who
holds several world and national records. The exhibit will
remain up through June at the hall of fame's museum,
located at 1 Hall of Fame Drive.
"Black Splash" evolved from a local appearance last
year by Cullen Jones, an African-American All-American
swimmer from North Carolina State University, Wigo said.
Through research with Jones and Lee Pitts, a
Broward-based African-American swimming instructor
who developed a DVD instructional series, Wigo said he
was able to compile a compelling amount of documents,
photographs and other artifacts.
The timeline dates back to the 1400s, with etchings
and verbal accounts depicting the aquatic skills of coastal
Africans. Many past and present accomplishments are
recognized too, including Crispus Attucks, the former
sailor who was the first American to die in the
Revolutionary War, and Anthony Nesty, the first swimmer
of African descent to win an Olympic Gold medal and the

Pink Cadillac boat: an 'only in the Keys' experience


BY CAMMY CLARK
The Miami Herald
ISLAMORADA. (AP) Capt. Joe Fox doesn't take
himself too seriously. This is how he describes the quality of
the champagne he serves his limousine clients: "Not much
better than gasoline." He is not selling a luxury ride, evidenced
by the plastic chairs and worn loveseat.
But he does offer an only-in-the-Keys experience: a
cruise on the beautiful bay waters off Islamorada in a boat that
looks like a 1983 pink Cadillac stretch limousine.
"I thought I had one too many margaritas when I saw it,"
said Melissa Underwood, of Detroit, one of about 20 people
at the Lorelei Cabana Bar who recently whipped out digital
cameras and cell phones to capture the unusual sight.
Capt. Joe drove past the crowd, waving.
"People go bananas when he goes around the bar," said
Richard Lattimer, dock master for the IslamoradaYacht Basin
at mile marker 82 of U.S. 1, where Fox keeps the NautiLimo.
Fox is 72 and looks the part: thin white beard, white mus-
tache, dirty blond ponytail, sun-aged face, big-brimmed hat
and T-shirt with a design of a black tie and captain insignia.
"Poor man's captain shirt," he said.
It took two years for Fox, a retired electrical engineer
who used to work on high-tech devices that tracked sub-
marines during the Cold War, to build the NautiLimo.
He had boat-building experience, dating back to age 14
when he created a hydroplane in Pittsburgh to race on the
Allegheny River.
Since then, he has built a runabout, two sailboats and the
NautiCar, which was created using the plastic body of a 1986
Pontiac Fiero on a Boston Whaler.
That idea came to him 10 years ago while he was teach-
ing kids in Mexico how to build soapbox derby cars.
"The Fiero makes a nice little boat, better than it did a
car," Fox said.
But the NautiCar could fit only two people and too
many people wanted rides.
While driving down U.S. 1 in the Keys, Fox spotted an
old classic Cadillac and told his wife: "Follow that limo."
He persuaded the limo driver to stop, introduced himself
and began taking photographs and measurements. The driver
told Fox: "You're wacky."


Fox began building the floating limo the next day, creat-
ing a wood-rib frame to give it shape and later covering it with
fiberglass and painting it pink. Some parts, such as the dash-
board, mirrors and grill, were collected from a Cadillac sitting
at a Big Pine junkyard.
"You can't use any metal on the waters," Fox said. "A lot
of people are fooled and think it's a real car body. But I built
it from scratch."
He placed the car body on a used 23-foot Carolina skiff,
powered by a 100-horsepower Yamaha four-stroke engine.
The limo went on its first voyage six years ago and has
been a hit with tourists and locals. Fox figures he has taken
about 50 brides for rides. A few have even said "I do" onboard.
''T picall I bring the bride to some big shindig she's got
planned on the shoreline," he said.
Two times he has taken families out on the serene waters
to spread ashes of loved ones.
But mostly, he chauffeurs people who like the novelty of
the boat and don't mind cheap champagne or bringing their
own drinks and food.
Fox usually conducts two-hour, nine-mile trips that fea-
ture views of multimillion-dollar bayside homes and a quaint

canal. Sometimes, he cruises through a channel of a mangrove
island where birds flock in the evening.
Among his customers was Steve Doorbos, then a tourist
from Michigan. Fox said Doombos begged him for years to
build him his own NautiLimo.
Fox said he finally figured out an efficient way to do so,
and about si\ inoiluhs ago Doornbos motored his white stretch
limo boat to his new home in Ocean Ridge. Doornbos said he
spent about $35,000, hoping to recoup his investment through
his new company, Johnny Ocean's Overboard Advertising.
"I'm right on the Intracoastal and it's pretty crazy,"
Doombos said. "People in multimillion-dollar boats pull up
and want to take a picture of my little boat."
Fox would like to build a third NautiLimo, if he can find
a client to buy it. He also would like to raise $20,000 to build
a replica of a Spanish galleon, which would rest on a 28-foot
Carolina skiff.
Fox said he's far from getting rich, surviving mostly on
his Social Security and income from his part-time work at the
Islamorada Chamber of Commerce's Visitor Center.
"But driving this is great for my ego," he said.

Anglers coming up empty after cold snap kills off fish


BY ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Fishing Columnist
Please accept our deepest sym-
pathy and a sorrowful welcome to
fishing's obituary department. If
you fished Flamingo, the Keys or
the southern Gulf coast after New
Year's Day, you must have heard
about the vast cold-water fish kill. I
was in Islamorada, where the
calamity dominated the conversa-
tions of fishing folks. A happy face
Arnold Markowitz was out of place.
Weather-watchers can tell you not to dismiss it as an
isolated incident. Conditions that produce a cold front as bad
as that, with an overnight temperature fall of 34 degrees,
don't combine very often, but it isn't forbidden. Here in
early February we usually look forward to a gradual
decrease in the intensity of cold fronts, and we usually get it.
Once in a while, though, a rough one sneaks in just as we
stop worrying about it.
In the middle Keys, fish that survived the cold snap
seemed to be in mourning, with little appetite even as Ed
Wolfe and I moved softly among them with a chum bag,
like a tray of tempting hours d'oeuvres that might have
brought them out of an ordinary torpor. Not this kind.
There's a spot we call the jack bridge, where we usually
begin the day to awaken our confidence or end the
day to recover it. We catch a lot of pushover jacks there,
but just a few this time. Most were foul-hooked, as if
they got stuck while smacking our lures to shoo them
away, not eat them.
As usual, chill-sensitive snook were the primary victims
of the cold and tarpon were secondary. The region affected
most is the best place to fish for both, especially big ones, but
it's the worst place to be a snook or tarpon when an especial-
ly sharp-edged cold front attacks. Why so? Because there's
no place to hide.
On Florida's east coast, north of the Keys, the fish swim
upland through numerous canals and creeks to find water
temperatures they can live with until bay, beach and
Intracoastal waters warm up again. Canals typically average

12 to 15 feet deep and are warmer. In winter I've seen snook
in golf course water hazards seven or eight miles inland, and
you can probably top that if you're a snook-fishing specialist.
The kills took place where shallows lead only to more
shallows, where leeside shores are made of mangrove
instead of warmer solid ground. That vulnerability is one
of the reasons for the Gulf's and Keys' shortened snook-
keeping season.

...bait fishermen should be
reminded that if they catch a
goliath or Nassau grouper
they still have to turn it loose.
Now, we humans knew or should have known when a
bad cold front was coming. Fish don't get our type of fore-
cast. They do have intuitive meteorology skills and can sense
declining water temperature. Instinct leads them into warmer
waters before it's too late. On the east coast, there's usually
enough time. On the lower west coast and in the Keys there's
little to no time to swim for their lives, and hardly anyplace
to go anyway. The fish were trapped in ambush.
William Perry, an ecologist with the South Florida
Natural Resources Center for Everglades and Dry Tortugas
National Parks, explained what happened in a message to his
e-mail network:
"The weather was relatively warm in the preceding
weeks, and then we got an abrupt change that caught fish in
water they would normally avoid. Based on instrument read-

ings in several locations, the front came through at night
(temps began dropping in West Lake around 10 p.m.), just
before a falling tide, and went from 24C (75.2F) to 5C (41F)
by morning.
More than a week later flying in a helicopter over Florida
Bay, Perry saw plenty of evidence that included dead sharks,
a ray, and a small number of unidentified fish in the eastern
part of the Bay. The fish in Garfield Bight included several tar-
pon estimated at over 100 pounds and a number of large
snook carcasses. "I am sure we had mortality elsewhere, espe-
cially in the backcountry, that we don't know about."
Bob LeMay, a guide who's been penetrating the deep
backcountry for a long time, knows about it. "The sudden
cold snap caused fish kills from Key Largo, bayside, all the
way over to Chokoloskee, and way up inside interior waters,"
he told his own online network. "There were remnants of it
still showing a week later in Buttonwood Canal and other
areas...many on the water witnessed large numbers of
goliath grouper dead and floating."
LeMay took the grouper kill's extent as a sign that the
decline of goliath and Nassau grouper populations has been
stopped or reversed by state and federal bans on catching and
keeping them.
"From Gulf wrecks all the way into little creeks and next
to the islands of Florida Bay, the goliath grouper numbers are

Cul-de-sacs:

circles of strife

BY MARK ERCOLIN
Waterfront News Columnist
Owning a waterfront home in South
Florida often means having two front yards
- one open to foot traffic and the other vis-
ible to passing boats. And just like parked
cars on your street can become an issue for
neighbors, docked boats in your backyard
canal can produce similar conflicts par-
ticularly on canals that have what might be
called "reverse" cul-de-sacs.
The landside cul-de-sac- a dead-end
road ending with a group of houses framing
a circle is an architectural concept that
became popular in the mid 20th century.
Developers took to it since it generally
allows for more homes to be built on small-
er and unusually shaped properties. It was
also believed by some planners that the
design created a better sense of community,
resulting in greater harmony and reduced
crime.
However, since the heyday of the cul-
de-sac, criticism has grown. Some planners
now believe the concept can lead to a lost
sense of privacy and communal discord
among homeowners. Further, the design
can create real parking problems (thanks to
a smaller front yard footprint) leading to
unwarranted traffic congestion that can
impede emergency and utility vehicles nav-
igating those dead-end roads.
Similarly, "reverse" or "canal side"
cul-de-sacs, where a canal dead-ends into a
circle of waterfront houses, have been built
in many areas of South Florida for the
same reason as their landside equivalents
- to maximize the number of homes
with waterfront.
These reverse cul-de-sacs are now suf-
fering from the same critical appraisals as
their landside equivalents i.e. congestion
and overlapping onto an adjacent neigh-
bor's docking area.
While concerns over vessel moorings


can occur anywhere in a waterfront neigh-
borhood, they can be particularly vexing on
a canal side cul-de-sac.
This is due not only to the general
small footprint of the docks on these prop-
erties, but the increasing inability of boat
owners to utilize "turn around" points, due
largely to today's trend toward longer and
wider vessels. It's certainly sobering to
realize that according to the 1962 "Lloyd's
American Yacht Register," most yachts list-
ed at that time were in the 40-foot range or
smaller.
Basically, it is in these reverse cul-de-
sacs where three legal concepts can unin-
tentionally come into conflict:
First, there is the wish of a homeown-
er to dock the vessel at his or her own
waterfront property. Second, the home-
owner has a right to use the waterfront
without being encumbered by a neighbor's
overlapping vessel. Finally, there's the gen-
eral right of vessel traffic to utilize the canal
and its end circle for navigation.
The first two concepts deal with the
legal principle of riparian rights (i.e. the
right to use and enjoy the waterfront adja-
cent to your property for your private use).
The last concerns the general maritime
principle that vessel navigation, under most
conditions, has priority and should not be
impinged.
As you might guess, the very geome-
try of a cul-de-sac at the end of a canal
makes it very difficult to satisfy all these
potential legal interests. Moreover, home-
owners seeking defmitive guidance from
statutes or case law to resolve a specific
conflict between their fellow neighbors or
other boat owners, probably will not find it.
In fact, it appears that, barring mutual
agreements between all parties, such con-
flicts might only be resolvable through the

Speak

Easy


When there is

a need to flee

BY AMY THURMAN
Waterfront News Columnist
Our friends, Bruce and Dawn, invited
us along for the weekend on their Brewer
44 as they began their cruising experience
and we jumped at the chance. We got to the
boat at 5:30 a.m., stowed our gear and got
the dogs settled, then slipped the dock lines
and headed out. After waiting for two
bridges to open, we left the cut at 7:20 a.m.
on 3-foot seas.
Not having been on a (moving) boat
for months, it took a little while to get my
sea legs. After we got away from most of
the traffic and raised the sails, it was
smoother and before long I was moving
around with ease.
About midday we reached Cape
Florida and Stiltsville, then continued sail-
ing through the afternoon. We decided to
anchor off Elliot Key and arrived with just
enough time to set the hook and mix our
sundowners. Settling in the cockpit, we
were entertained by three seagulls swooping
and diving through the pink trail between
our boat and the setting sun.
On our second day out, I didn't realize
how quickly I'd adapted to the silence until
radio chatter and the distant whump of a
Coast Guard helicopter broke the peace
about mid-morning.
A boat of Cuban refugees were being
evacuated. For someone who grew up in
the Midwest, it was a pretty amazing spec-
tacle. As I watched the helicopter hover
over a spot of land on the horizon, I won-
dered about the people involved. In time
the activity died down and we assumed
everyone had been rescued.
We meandered around Pumpkin Key
then zigged and zagged for a while looking
for another anchorage. We finally opted for
a quiet spot off Card Sound Point.
While setting the anchor, we saw two
men on shore, whom we assumed were


exploring from a boat on the other side.
When they tried to hail us by waving a t-
shirt, we put two and two together. Cuban
refugees, that for whatever reason, had been
left behind.
We called the Coast Guard. As we sat
there eating lunch and waiting to see what
happened next, I worried. They must be
starving and thirsty. And scared.
An hour later, a Coast Guard skiff
came around the point and headed slowly
for shore. I grabbed the binoculars. Not
that I don't trust U.S. officials, but an
American flagged vessel watching keeps
everyone honest.
The skiff approached and the Coasties
used a bullhorn to call to the men. As I
watched, one of the men bent over, grabbed
a handful of sand in each hand and held
them up in the air while shouting. I could-
n't hear, but it didn't take much imagina-
tion to know he was saying, "I'm on
American soil!"
The Coasties and the Cubans called to
each other for a few minutes, then just
before they waded out to the boat, the
other man put a handful of sand in his
pocket. Those two simple acts spoke vol-
umes to me.
The men turned the skiff around then
climbed aboard and accepted the life jackets
given to them. A Coast Guard pilot boat was
waiting in the channel, where the men were
transferred and taken who knows where. I
worried about what would happen to them
and hoped they would be safe and treated
with dignity.
Since moving to South Florida, I've
frequently heard natives, and incredibly
even some transplants, complain about the
Cuban population. Their complaints range
from affects on jobs, housing, traffic, crime
and complaints about Spanish being used

Homeowners face issues on canal cul-de-sacs


-----MOITM. IT SM---
courts, or possibly by a local zoning board, but not before a
great deal of time and costs are expended.
With South Florida real estate presently in a buyers mar-
ket, it is very likely that a home at the end of a canal could
prove a tempting bargain. But a home on a reverse cul-de-sac
originally designed to accommodate a pleasant waterfront
lifestyle could, in the end, become a "circle of strife." So, a
potential purchase should be reviewed with the greatest care.
If you are considering the purchase of, or perhaps
already own a home on a reverse cul-de-sac, here are some
suggestions on to how to avoid future problems:
Naturally, the best way to avoid conflict is to accept the
limitations of the cul-de-sac design and dock only small
boats in the area. However, there will probably always be at


least one neighbor who wants a bigger boat.
And the placement of larger vessels in the cul-de-sac
might be possible providing there is a courteous accommo-
dation between all neighbors. Keep in mind that such agree-
ments generally end when an owner sells.
Also consider that whatever accommodations are made
for a bigger boat, generally no one can impinge on the use of
the cul-de-sac for purposes of navigation, as that is usually
considered a priority.
It is interesting to note that ancient philosophers consid-
ered the circle to be a universal symbol for perfection.
Probably most of them did not live in a cul-de-sac!

When the need to flee outweighs fear of the unknown


more than English. There's the "you need a passport to go to
Miami" joke. None of this negativity takes into consideration
the human aspect. These people are human beings, flesh and
blood, with hopes and fears and dreams just like you and I.
As Americans, we love our country despite complaining
about the government at some point in time. But most of us
have never felt so desperate that the only option was to climb
aboard a boat in the middle of the night and leave behind our
possessions, our friends and our families, with only memories
to hold onto. When the fear of the unknown that lies ahead is
balanced only by the need to flee.
I was grateful that we'd been able to assist in getting the
men off the island. No food, no water and being eaten alive by
bugs would have made for a hellish night for them. But I wor-
ried too about what they faced next. Would they be treated
well where they were taken? Would they be able to make their
way in a new world with the hostilities they're bound to face?
Late that afternoon we anchored in No Name Harbor. It
was three days before Christmas so Bruce and Dawn put on

a Frank Sinatra Christmas CD and strung lights and
snowflakes around the bimini. The music made me think of
my Pop, a huge Sinatra fan, so I called him in St. Louis to say
hi. As usual, the first question out of his mouth was, "Where
are you now?"
"Sitting on a sailboat off Miami in shorts and a t-shirt,
listing to Frank sing about a white Christmas and sipping a
margarita."
"Really? I had to shovel snow today, you brat!"
I hope the two men on Card Sound Point get the chance
to go home again. But until then, I hope they find peace and
freedom in this...better place.

On tour: Miami Beach's historic Art Deco buildings


BY LISA ORKIN EMMANUEL
Associated Press Writer
MIAMI BEACH (AP) Modern-
day South Beach is still a vibrant monu-
ment to the Art Deco designs of the late
1920s and '30s.
The narrow streets are lined with hotels
and buildings designed with curved edges,
porthole windows and pastel-colored
facades, all touchstones of the style.
The Miami Design Preservation
League is offering tours of the Art Deco dis-
trict guided, recorded and one that can
even be done listening on a cell phone.
On a recent sun-drenched morning,
guide Erika Brigham, who has lived in
the area since 1988, kicked off the tour
with a lively talk about the architectural
history of the neighborhood. She wore
palm tree-shaped earrings, a gold-and-
black speckled visor.
"I think it's incredibly important to
preserve the buildings," Brigham said.
"They have a much more human scale than
skyscrapers."
One stop on the tour is the Amsterdam
Palace at Ocean Drive and 11th Street. It is
of Mediterranean Revival design, which
features decorative columns, arched win-
dows, clay barrel tile roofs and rough stuc-
co walls. Today it's known as Casa
Casuarina, a five-star luxury hotel. It is per-
haps most famous for a bit of notoriety:
Italian fashion designer Gianni Versace was
gunned down outside in 1997.
Next up are three small hotels facing the
ocean just north of the palatial villa. They
are the Leslie, built in 1937; the Cardozo,
constructed two years later; and the Carlyle,
built in 1941. The Cardozo was named for
one of the first Jewish justices on the U.S.
Supreme Court, Benjamin Cardozo.
"People used a variety of names [for
hotels]. Sometimes it was a daughter or a
wife or a mistress," said Scott Timm, direc-
tor of programs and outreach for MDPL.
Brigham said the Carlyle was in the
1996 movie "The Birdcage," which starred
Robin Williams, Gene Hackman and
Nathan Lane. The owners refurbished it a
bit for filming, but it has remained empty
ever since, she said.


Art Deco on display: Neon lighting was important feature of Art Deco because it
became part of the architecture.


All three oceanfront hotels have the
trademark Art Deco designs including hori-
zontal banding and "eyebrows;' which are
cantilevered sunshades located over exteri-
or windows that create interesting shadows
on the facade of the structure.
"I knew I wouldn't get the information
I wanted to just from reading a book;' said
Nancy Goward, 42, from Cape Cod, Mass.
"It's beautiful, but it's really different."
These kinds of small hotels were built
for middle-class customers because
wealthy people always went to Palm
Beach, Timm said. Their exteriors are
rounded and are reminiscent of rounded
automobiles and oceanliners.
They are made of concrete, while
porous limestone was used as a decorative
element, Timm said. The limestone is a
native South Florida coral rock.
The historic district extends from Sixth


Street to 23rd Street, but the group tours
usually stay in the teens and can take up to
two hours. The individual tour is designed
to take less than an hour.
"The idea is that it [the tour] goes in a
circle;' said Jeff Donnelly, part-time profes-
sor of American Studies at the University of
Miami and director of the tour school that
trains the guides. "As you walk through the
district you can visualize earlier and then
later periods of design ... to get a view of
how design developed in the U.S. in the
mid-20th century."
The U.S. Post Office at 1300
Washington Ave. was built in 1937 and has
fewer decorative details and a more somber
look. Inside there is a three-panel mural that


Up close
The Art Deco Welcome Center of
the Miami Design Preservation League,
located on Ocean Drive and 10th Street,
offers three tour options: self-guided
tours using iPod rentals, $15 ($10 for
seniors and students); cell phone tours,
$10 (dial 786-312-1229 and charge to a
credit card); and guided tours, $20 (sen-
iors and students, $15). Morning guided
tours leave at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday,
Friday, Saturday and Sunday; night
tours are Thursday, 6:30 p.m.
The tour stops vary depending on
the tour and the guide.

League: 305-672-2014; www.mdpl.org.

greets the visitor, a fountain and a ceiling
fixture that looks like the sun.
Nearby on 11th Street, an aluminum
diner built in 1948 was actually brought to
the area from Pennsylvania in 1992.
Neon lighting was also an important
feature of Art Deco because it became part
of the architecture, Brigham said.
"Neon lighting was new to that time,"
she said. "It became a design element ... It
was both artistic and architectural."
The Blackstone Hotel on Eighth Street
and Washington Avenue was built in 1929.
It used to be one of the only hotels to wel-
come Jewish and black guests, Timm said.
The area below Fifth Street was about the
only place in the area that Jews could come
as guests and homeowners. Today the dis-
trict is very open and diverse, including
welcoming the gay and lesbian community.
"It's part of the story," Donnelly said.
'The fact that many hoteliers discriminated
against people who were Jewish is also a fact
... but the lower part (of Miami Beach) was
open to people who were Jewish when many
resorts around the United States were not."

Controversial study suggests fewer hurricanes may strike U.S.


Global warming's shifting weather
patterns credited
BY SETH BORENSTEIN
AP Science Writer
WASHINGTON (AP) Global waning could reduce
how many hurricanes hit the United States, according to a
new federal study that clashes with other research.
The new study is the latest in a contentious scientific
debate over how man-made global warming may affect the
intensity and number of hurricanes.
In it, researchers link warming waters, especially in the
Indian and Pacific oceans, to increased vertical wind shear
in the Atlantic Ocean near the United States. Wind shear -
a change in wind speed or direction makes it hard for hur-
ricanes to form, strengthen and stay alive.
So that means "global warming may decrease the like-
lihood of hurricanes making landfall in the United States,"
according to researchers with the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration.
With every degree Celsius that the oceans warm, the
wind shear increases by up to 10 mph, weakening storm for-
mation, said study author Chunzai Wang, a research
oceanographer at NOAA. Winds forming over the Pacific
and Indian oceans have global effects, much like El Nino
does, he said.
Wang said he based his study on observations instead of
computer models and records of landfall hurricanes through

more than 100 years.
His study was expected to be published in late January
in Geophysical Research Letters.
Critics say Wang's study is based on poor data that was
rejected by scientists on the Nobel Prize-winning
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. They said that
at times only one in 10 North Atlantic hurricanes hit the U. S.
coast, and the data reflect only a small percentage of storms
around the globe.

Hurricanes hitting land "are not a reliable record" for
how hurricanes have changed, said Kevin Trenberth, climate
analysis chief for the National Center for Atmospheric
Research.
Trenberth is among those on the other side of a growing
debate over global warming and hurricanes. Each side uses
different sets of data and focus on different details.

One group of climate scientists has linked increases in
the strongest hurricanes just those with winds greater
than 130 mph in the past 35 years to global warming. The
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has said "more
likely than not," manmade global warming has already
increased the frequency of the most intense storms.
But hurricane researchers have argued that the long-
term data for all hurricanes show no such trend. And Wang's
new research suggests just the opposite of the view that
more intense hurricanes result from global warming.
Former National Hurricane Center Director Max
Mayfield said regardless of which side turns out to be right,
it only takes one storm to be deadly. So the key for residents
of hurricane-prone areas, he said, is to be prepared for a
storm "no matter what."

Exhibit aims to encourage swimming skills among black youth


first African American inducted into the
International Swimming Hall of Fame.
"Black Splash" also touches on the
decades of restricted entry at public pools
and beaches. Discrimination is cited
among the reasons why many African
Americans today choose not to swim,
resulting in tragic consequences. A fatal
unintentional drowning rate for African
American children ages five to 14 years
old is 3.2 times higher than their whites
counterparts, Wigo said.
"The experiences for whites and
blacks when connecting with the water is
radically different," Wigo said.
Another look at segregation emerges
at "Separated Waters." The display focuses
on former blacks-only beaches at Virginia
Key Beach in Miami and two sites in
Broward County, one on a stretch of sand
now known as Galt Ocean Mile, and the
other at what is now John U. Lloyd State
Park, said Derek Davis, curator for the Old


Dillard Museum.
The exhibit coincides with plans being
made to re-open Virginia Key as a park in
February and the recent allocation of
monies by the Broward County
Commission to erect a historical marker at
John U. Llloyd, Davis said.
The facility is working in conjunction

with the hall of fame to garner interest
among the public, with emphasis on moti-
vating black youth to get in the water and
reduce drowning statistics, Davis said.
"These exhibits show all cultures
should be involved in swimming," he said.
"Especially if you live in South Florida,
there's water everywhere."

Flyfishing in Patagonia you shouldn't do this alone


BY ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Fishing Writer
SAN MARTIN de los ANDES, Patagonia In a day-
dream I call an old friend at the National Hurricane Center,
back in Miami, to ask if he knows about the wind down here.
It's rather alarming. The Argentine weather report said 45
knots but I can tell it's stronger. The gusts feel almost like the
hurricane minimum, 64 knots.
"I thought you were smarter than that," my old friend
says. "Hurricanes don't happen south of the equator."
He asks what I'm doing down here. I tell him.
"Flyfishing in a 45-knot wind? I thought you were
smarter than that."
Someone hollers "Fish on!" and I snap out of the trance.
Looking back from the bow of the boat, I see a husky rain-
bow trout in mid-air held aloft, I guess, by the wind and
almost within arm's length of Matt Bemtson, who's fishing
from the stem.
Our guide, Rubin Gutierrez, is laughing while trying to
slow the boat enough for the fish to swim forward. It can't be
easy, because the boat's a rubber whitewater raft. It rides
entirely on the surface. That wind is pushing us downstream
faster than the river is flowing and it's flowing mighty fast.
The trout is up front now, trying to swim beneath us.
Rubin pulls the raft up against the riverbank. We get the
fish into his net. He unhooks it and cradles it in the water until
it recovers its breath and swims away.
That's our first catch, three hours into our first day's fish-
ing in Patagonia, which National Geographic once called
"Land of the Living Wind." On the Internet, I found a report
of the Patagonian wind picking up stones and throwing them
so hard they dented a sheet-metal shed.
Our band of fishing-doers, 14 members of the South
Florida Fly Fishing Club, had traveled more than 4,000 miles
and spent aplenty, even with great group rates and a peso-to-
dollars exchange rate of three to one. It might have been hard

to shake off getting skunked on day one.
I explained skunking to Rubin, who didn't know the crit-
ter's name in English. I performed a bit of vulgar pantomime
and he picked it right up.
"Zorrino!"he cried. If I got the rest of his meaning there's
no Patagonian expression for getting skunked because that
doesn't happen here in spite of the wind.

What a challenge
Back home on a day like this, we'd have stayed home.
Here, we're between the edge and the middle of nowhere. We
can't just stop at a dock and send for a taxi. We must adjust
and we do. I surprise myself, because I've never been good at
fly casting into a wind.
That wind challenges all your skills, beginning with the
cast. You try to time it between gusts. If you make a decent
throw, it's hard to keep the line tight enough. Current and
wind quickly bend it into a wide downstream arc, dragging
the fly unless you almost constantly "mend" the line by flip-

ping it up or downstream to make your fake fly insect look as
natural as a genuine caddis.
You can't do this kind of fishing alone. Somebody has to
row the boat, often upstream to keep you in position to cast,
set the hook, play the fish and bring it to the net.
Rubin and the other guides I fished with Cristian
Daniel and Emiliano Attadia are masters at keeping the
raft under control, spotting a fish lie, watching your line for
a bite, spotting another fish rising out of your sightline and
warning you about downstream hazards, often all at the
same time. Other anglers in our party noticed their guides
doing the same.
The trick is trying to make the wind work a little in your
favor, and to keep the raft near enough to shore for the
anglers to throw a semi-accurate cast up against the bank
where trout like to lurk yet not so near that you can't
switch to the other side without snagging your backcast on
the ubiquitous willows.
The rivers are so fast that the best oarsmen can't hold a
position for more than several seconds. You see a flock of flies
or a swirl on the surface and you cast to it, seldom with time
to line up your toss. Zooming past a near-motionless backwa-
ter, you go for it, keeping your trajectory low to get under an
overhanging willow tree. No strike, yank it back and cast
again. Hit the tree, lose your fly.
The river doesn't forgive mistakes, I observe as Cristian
and I float the Alumine on day two.
"Yes," he answers, "You only get one or two opportuni-
ties each time."

A flyfishing dream
Our guides were furnished by Damonte Outfitters, one of
the leading organizations of its kind in San Martin, a town
devoted to eco-tourism, trout fishing and skiing. It's headed
by Dario Damonte, who began as an independent guide in the
late 1990s. He now has four boats with his own crew of guides
and a mutual respect network that enables him to engage, ad

Valentine dinner need not be a lengthy labor of love




BY J.M. HIRSCH
AP Food Editor
Preparing an elegant, romantic dinner on Valentine's
Day need not be a labor, of love or otherwise.
Just 45 minutes of simple kitchen work will have
you serving up broiled salmon with a miso-lime glaze,
roasted asparagus, a simple salad and frosted heart-
shaped mini-cakes.
Even better, much of this meal can be prepared early,
leaving about 15 minutes of work just before serving.
The four-ingredient glaze can be made up to a day
early. If you have room in your refrigerator, you even
could cut the salmon and place it on the baking sheet the
morning of your dinner. Just don't drizzle with glaze until
ready to cook.
The asparagus also can be washed and trimmed early.
Place the spears in a plastic zip-close bag, add the oil, salt
and pepper, then seal the bag, shake to coat and refriger-
ate until ready to cook.
The same storage method can be used with the salad,
but don't add the dressing until served.
The cakes are easily prepared early, as they need time
to chill before serving anyway. Be sure not to cover them
with plastic wrap (or it you do, keep the wrap from touch-
ing the surface), as it will stick to the frosting.
The only special equipment needed for this meal is a
1- to 2-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter.
This recipe is written for the entire meal, start to fin-
ish, and takes 45 minutes. Serves two.


For the cakes:
1 small frozen pound cake
2 teaspoons strawberry jam
1 cup prepared vanilla, chocolate or strawberry
frosting
1 vanilla, chocolate or strawberry icing pen (choose
a contrasting color to the frosting)

For the asparagus:
1 bunch asparagus, thick bottoms trimmed
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

For the salmon:
2 tablespoons white miso
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon lime juice
2 tablespoons water
1 pound salmon fillet

For the salad:
3 cups baby arugula (or other baby greens)
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/4 cup dried cranberries
2 tablespoons slivered almonds
Balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing


Salmon can be prepped the day before dinner. Just don't drizzle with the glaze until read to cook.


Get started
Preheat oven to 500 F. Line a baking sheet with foil
and coat with cooking spray.
Next make the cakes: Cut four 1-inch slices from the
pound cake.
Use a 1- to 2-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut a
heart of cake from each of the four slices, discarding the
excess cake.
Spoon 1 teaspoon of jam over the tops of two of the
hearts. Place a second heart on top of the jam. Transfer the
cakes to a wire rack. Set aside.
Place the frosting in a microwave-safe measuring
cup and microwave on high in 15-second bursts, stirring
in between, until the frosting is melted, smooth and
pours easily.
Place the wire rack with the cakes over paper towels
or newspapers. Pour the frosting over the two cakes. It
should leave a thick, smooth coat of frosting. The excess
frosting will drip through the rack.
Let the cake set up for 5 minutes, then use the icing
pen to make decorative marks on top, if desired. Use a
spatula to carefully transfer them to serving plates and
refrigerate until ready to serve.


The main course
In a medium bowl or large plastic bag, place the
asparagus, salt and pepper. Toss or shake to coat, then
arrange the asparagus in a single layer on one side of the
prepared baking sheet.
To make the salmon glaze, use a blender or whisk to
combine the miso, maple syrup, lime juice and water
until smooth.
Cut the salmon fillet into two pieces and place them
on the other half of the baking sheet. Drizzle each piece
with the miso-lime glaze, then place the baking sheet in
the oven and bake for 5 minutes.
After 5 minutes, increase the oven to broil. Watch the
salmon carefully; the top should caramelize slightly. Move the
pan around under the broiler if needed to ensure even cook-
ing. Broil for 6 minutes, or until the salmon flakes easily.
While the salmon cooks, divide the greens between
two serving plates. Top each serving with half of the car-
rots, cranberries and almonds.
When the salmon is cooked, use a spatula to transfer
one serving to each plate, nestling it next to the salad.
Divide the roasted asparagus between the plates, then
serve with balsamic vinaigrette for the salads.

Oarsmen challenged by Patagonia's fast rivers


--------It.I0J IN'.ULWIlU----
hoc, others who meet his standards when he has a large group
of clients.
Patagonia, the southern half of South America, is one-
fourth Chilean on the west side, three-fourths Argentine on
the east with the Andes mountains in between. It's a flyfish-
ing dream that reaches all the way to Tierra del Fuego on the
edge of the Southern Ocean.
We're in Argentine Patagonia because one of our club
members, Fernando Borrajo, is Argentine and he made most
of the choices for us. They were great choices, too: San Martin
(population about 20,000) is interesting enough that a dozen
of us chose to fish only three or four days and devote the other
time to sight-seeing and shopping. There are good hotels and
many comfortable tourist cabins. We stayed at Cabanas
Arique; Borrajo had been there before and developed a friend-
ship with the owners.
Restaurant choices are excellent too, with good variety
for a country so devoted to grilled red meats. My favorite in
San Martin is El Regional, a specialist in regional cuisine.
Out-of-town Patagonia being wild country means a menu fea-
turing wild boar and venison as well as beef dishes. We all ate
there the first night in town and the staff prepared as swell a
spread as you'd expect to be served to a party of 14 with
meticulous service as well. A few nights later three of us went
back for conventional dinners two boar, one trout and
were treated just as grandly.

Fanciful fish tales
That first windy day was on the Collon Cura river, the
largest and strongest we would fish. We also fished the
Alumine and Chimehuin, famous in their own right to fly fish-
ers fortunate enough to know this territory, and a lake called
Filo Hua Hum. One of my favorite memories of that place is
making a long, near-perfect cast that a sudden wind gust
caught halfway and threw back so hard that it landed several
yards behind me.
Hua Hum is a nice medium-small lake. Doug Blinco will
remember it for a long time, for that's where he caught a 24-
inch brown trout, the biggest any of us landed on the trip. The
wind that day was comparatively benign, but sudden gusts
still slugged us now and then, reminding us where we were.
Guided by Emiliano Attadia, I walked the banks of a trib-
utary creek called El Quieto for its lack of turbulence. On the
opposite side, we saw a pod of big brown trout that gave us a
week's worth of frustration in less than an hour. Those fish
wouldn't touch any fly I offered unless it fell or drifted right
into their midst. When I could put one there, they would strike
and I would miss the hookset. It happened four times, and my
only hookup was broken off in a moment.
"Oh my God! Quatro! Increible!" Poper cried out, but he
kept encouraging.
Here's a fish tale that sticks with me as an example of
how a really good guide operates:
On shore at lunch that day, I walked away to make a close
inspection of certain stout trees scouting the shoreline shal-
lows, of course, for trout along the way. On the way back I
saw a nice one meandering in the same direction I was going.
Quietly, I began wading slowly backward to keep it in sight.


Poper's raft was about 40 feet behind me. I figured on bump-
ing into it, groping backward for a rod and making a cast low
enough to avoid the overhead willows.
That wasn't necessary. Conversation at the lunch table
went silent. From behind, a fly rod appeared beside my left
hand. I knew how it got there.
"He's moving to your right now," Poper said softly over
my shoulder. "Can you still see him? Okay. Wait, wait, wait.
Now. Cast."
The fly came down in the right place but the trout was
looking the opposite way. I made three or four more casts,
never getting its attention.
Wouldn't that be a great story if I had caught that fish?

Up close
Seasons are reversed south of the equator. In
December, when the author was in Patagonia, it's early
springtime and most river fishing is done from whitewa-
ter rafts. As river levels diminish in January and
February, opportunities for wade fishing increase and
fish become more concentrated.
The Argentine peso is weak against the U.S. dollar, so
bargains abound throughout the country.
For information on the major fishing rivers and lakes
between San Martin and Junin de los Andes and the big-
ger city of Bariloche, see www.flyfishingpatagonia.com, a
booking outfit. Cabanas Arique, where the South Florida
Fly Fishing Club stayed, is at www.arique.com. For a
good listing of accommodations in San Martin, try
www.travel-library.com and type "San Martin de los
Andes" in the search blank.
The fly club fished with Damonte Outfitters; see

fitters.com/index.html for the Damonte's U.S. repre-
sentative in Wisconsin.
