BROWARD COUNTY LOCALS VIE FOR THE CHANCE TO HOUSE PANTHERS
Competition between the communities of Ft. Lauderdale and
Sunrise is "heating up" with the improving prospects of a Broward
County arena, according to the MIAMI HERALD. Ft. Lauderdale City
Manager George Hanbury has stated he can squeeze an arena, a Tri-
Rail station, and a 2,000-space parking garage on their proposed
site, while Sunrise City Manager says their location will have a
"safe and secure" feeling, giving it the "greatest opportunity"
for good attendance. Karen Kafinski writes it may come down to a
decision from the Broward County Council, as it will finance the
project (MIAMI HERALD, 10/29).
