FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- NEXT MONTH, hundreds of thousands of college students will besiege sandy shores and snowy slopes around the country to celebrate the rites of spring. But just a handful will head for this beach resort, which for 35 years was the spring-break capital of the world.That is just fine with local officials and most business owners, who say they could not be happier, even though it means the loss of $140 million generated by spring break."You can get so addicted to that kind of money that you never ask at what cost," said Nicki E. Grossman, a commissioner of Broward County, which includes Fort Lauderdale.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Until recently, Brian Roberts' comeback played out almost entirely outside the public eye, away from the curious gaze of many of his teammates and the critical glare of reporters, looking for proof that the Orioles second baseman is ready to play in a baseball game again. At first, he took batting practice on a back field at Fort Lauderdale Stadium, where no fans are allowed and where planes taking off nearby drown out any sounds associated with baseball. He has followed hitting coach Terry Crowley, both of them ducking into the batting cage adjacent to the main field, a thick netting obscuring the diminutive All-Star swinging at soft-toss pitches inside.

Cruising around the west coast of Florida this week, a few thoughts came to mind: Is there any place in the free world with more strip malls per square mile than the greater Tampa-St. Pete area? Are they called strip malls because, at least in Tampa, there seemingly is a strip joint on every corner? Aren't the Orioles lucky that they have a great city like Fort Lauderdale to spend six weeks in? And could Fort Lauderdale Stadium be any worse? Spending a few days in Clearwater, Sarasota and Tampa opened the eyes to how bad the Orioles' big league training facility is for fans, players and media alike.

A key figure in the Novatek International Inc. stock-rigging scandal was ordered to pay $350,000 and was forever barred from running an American public company, the Securities and Exchange Commission announced yesterday. Vincent D. Celentano of Hillsboro, Fla., consented to the sanctions without admitting or denying the SEC's allegations of fraud and securities laws violations in one of the largest corporate scandals perpetrated in Maryland. Last week, in a related criminal case, Celentano was sentenced to two years of probation and fined $5,000.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Treasure hunters believe they have discovered the legendary "Lost Patrol" -- five World War II Navy bombers that disappeared without a trace 45 years ago and strengthened the myth of the Bermuda Triangle.If accurate, the find in 700 feet of water 10 miles off Fort Lauderdale would solve one of aviation's greatest mysteries and provide a long-awaited explanation to survivors of the five pilots and nine crewmen who lost radio contact and vanished on Dec. 5, 1945.It also would suggest a tragic irony: that the Navy pilots were almost within sight of their home base when they apparently ditched their planes in high seas.
