Former Fort Lauderdale Mayor Jim Naugle sense of history gives him a rather different perception of the homeless colony under the Julia Tuttle Causeway. He writes:
Can you imagine how the Tuttle family must feel with all of the headlines about Julia Tuttle sex offenders? All because we named the causeway after her in 1960. (She died at 50 in 1898.)
It reminds me of something Clay Shaw told me one time. He said they always refer to the 17th Street Causeway unless the bridge is out. Then they call it the Clay Shaw Bridge.
