Is Broward going through an identity crisis?
Broward Commissioner Chip LaMarca says many outside Florida don't recognize the name Broward but associate Fort Lauderdale with fun and sun. He says he'll propose changing the county's name to Lauderdale County, an idea that will be debated next week in a function hosted by the Tower Forum, a Broward (soon to be Lauderdale?) non-profit business organization. Miami-Dade changed its name in 1997.
