As the year comes to a close, some
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea residents and
town leaders are at odds over the role
played by the town's growing Volun-
teer Fire Department and fire suppres-
sion services purchased from Broward
County.
The Volunteer Fire Department had
exclusively provided fire service for
the Lauderdale-By-The-Sea since


1961, but a recent annexation of the
previously unincorporated South
Beach area forced the town to pur-
chase additional fire suppression
services from the Broward County
Fire Rescue division, now adminis-
trated by the Broward County
Sheriffs Office. The Volunteer Fire
Department [VFD] now serves as a
subcontractor to the county.

Chamber plans to rock the city of
Pompano Beach with this year's holiday
boat parade and shore contest


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF

Pompano Beach Assistant Fire
Chief Frank Ross knows how to react
quickly and decisively when it comes
to emergency situations and the
welfare of this city's residents.
But last week, Ross produced a
classic nonplussed response when he
was asked if he believed in Santa
Claus.
* The question silenced everyonein


the room. They wanted to know.
When he answered "yes," everyone
breathed a sigh of relief.
He believes.
That's probably why he has spent
the last few years making sure hun-
dreds of Pompano Beach children get
Christmas presents on Christmas Day.
Ross, BSO Deputies Mike
Johnson, Victor Villabobes and Darryl
Stallings picked up on a tradition

Residents have more than one way
to get the most out of this year's 42nd
Annual Pompano Beach Holiday Boat
Parade on Dec. 19.
The most popular way over the
past 40 or so years has been to find a
spot on the Intracoastal Waterway,
take the family picnic basket and
chairs and watch the boats go by.
Thousands of people will be
jamming the shores of the Waterway
to peek at the decorated yachts, motor
boats and commercial vessels.
This year, Musette I, a 108-foot
yacht will lead the parade, sailing at
5:30 p.m. from the Cove Restaurant in
Deerfield Beach. Tickets are $75 and
include a sit-down meal. A premium
bar will also be open during the sail.
Lead boat guests will share the ride
with Pompano Beach Mayor John
Rayson, who is this year's grand


marshal. Casual holiday attire is
suggested for the ride. Seats are still
available. Call the Pompano Beach
Chamber at 954-941-2940.
Following the Musette I will be the
decorated boats as small as canoes to
magnificent yachts.
"So far we have 40 boats.in the
parade," says Stacey Peterson, market-
ing director and special events coordi-
nator for the Pompano Beach Cham-
ber of Commerce. "But they keep
signing up, and they are welcometo
do so. There is no fee. The captain's
meeting was held this Friday, but we
can still sign up more boats after that."
Captains who miss the safety
meeting will have to pick up a
captain's information packet and a
boat number at the Chamber offices,
2200 E. Atlantic Blvd.
Judges for the boat parade will be
stationed aboard the Gallant Lady, a

started by Pompano Beach
resident Jenni Singleton
Simon.
Simon took it upon herself
to deliver Christmas presents
to children in the city whom
she knew would not otherwise
receive any.
Simon, a lifetime resident,
recalled that Christmas was
somehow diminished, know-
ing that some children would
miss out on the Santa Claus
tradition.
With the help of her
brother-in-law, Earl Clark,
she bought some toys and
other gifts and delivered them
on Christmas Day to the
unexpected delight of some
special children.
Today, Simon's Christmas
Express is a grand volunteer
effort that includes Ross and


other volunteers at the Pom-
pano Beach Fire Department
and Broward County Sheriff's
Office.
But filling the trucks
depends on the generosity of
this community, and Ross is
asking residents and business
owners to deliver unwrapped
new toys to any of the city's
seven fire houses. Residents
on the beach can take their
toys to the Walgreens on
Atlantic Boulevard and AIA.
On Christmas Day,
hundreds of children have
been meeting at specific stops
throughout the city, in antici-
pation of the Christmas
Express. Not only will they
see Santa Claus, BSO Depu-
ties and fire fighters, they will
take home gifts like basket
balls. CD players, dolls and
other toys.

Shoal Creek gets first approval from

planning and zoning board


By Paul Proia
PELICAN STAFF
The Lighthouse Point Plan-
ning and Zoning Board unani-
mously approved site plans and
rezoning requests from Shoal
Creek Properties, Inc. that al-
lows Shoal Creek Properties to
move forward, pending city
commission approval, with
plans to build luxury
townhomes along Federal High-
way where the South Winds
Mobile Home park and a vacant
commercial building now stand.
The most recent site plan,
which included a reduction in
townhomes from 86 to 80 units,
was met with favorable response
from all board members.
According to Susan Motley,
attorney with Ruden


McCloskey, who represented
Shoal Creek Properties, the site
plan changes allowed for a num-
ber of improvements. "Because
there are fewer units, we were
able to increase the space be-
tween buildings and make other
design enhancements. All units
will come with two car garages,
driveways were lengthened, and


guest parking was increased
to more than 40 spaces."
Changes in unit count and
parking were major concerns
when Shoal Creek last pre-
sented site plans before the
city's planning and zoning
board in October.

Residents have been


dolling up their homes for
the holidays for years', but
this is only the second year
the Chamber has offered
prizes for shore decorations.
"Debra Paul, shore

Mayor Rayson will be Grand Marshal of


2004 Annual Pompano Holiday Boat Parade


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
"It will be an honor to
lead our city's oldest con-
tinuous boat parade," says
Mayor John C. Rayson and
then, with his easy smile he
adds, "I was pleasantly
surprised to be chosen. If I
recall, the Grand Marshal is
usually a well known, public
personality."
Actually, Rayson is well
known, not as a rock star,
but as a person who served
his state government well.
Before being elected Mayor
of Pompano Beach, he was a
State Representative for five
consecutive terms, serving
for 10 years in the State
Legislature, where he made
his mark and a big difference
in the lives of many. Here
are just a few of his accom-
plishments of which he is
most proud.
Rayson sponsored the
class size reduction bill
allowing no more than 20
children in kindergarten
through third grade. "It
worked," he says. "Studies
show that smaller classes
have been most effective in
these early school years.
Teachers can teach and
youngsters learn and con-
tinue to perform better in the

higher grades."
He was a pivotal person
in getting the East Ever-
glades Buffer Bill passed.
This bill limits western
development from Palm
Beach to the Keys, protect-
ing what's left of the Ever-
glades and the future water
supply of South Florida. For
his environmental efforts, he
received a commendation
from President Clinton.
Rayson introduced the
teacher database which
shares teacher information
across the country and
protects against the possibil-
ity of hiring a teacher with a
troubled record.
He was the prime sponsor
of the Ramon Turnquist
School Crossing Guard


Pompano Beach Mayor John
Rayson will serve as grand
marshal of this year's parade.
Rayson and his family will
lead the parade on the Mu-
sette I.

Central Broward Water
Control District. "I'm busier
than ever," he says. "I have
to be. The mayor's salary
won't put kids through
college and we have four in
schools right now."
Being the mayor of a city
is very different from being
a state representative. "It's a
totally different ball game,"
Rayson admits. "OIt's a
mixed bag and I enjoy it
most of the time. It seems
the more you give, the more
the city wants. It's very time
consuming and the pay is
mediocre, but I care about
Pompano Beach and I'm
committed to the job. I think
I bring a credible and
professional atmosphere to
the commission. It's not
always easy to get everyone
on the same page, but I'm
working hard to develop
coalitions."
Since his election,
Rayson worked hard to get
the Highlands incorporated
into Pompano Beach. He
and his wife, Kathy, went
door to door, selling their
city to the Highlands resi-
dents. He says, "Now that
we have succeeded, we are a

grants which will help us get
major improvements for the
city and residents."
Rayson feels redevelop-
ment on the east side is
probably the biggest unre-
solved issue. "We should not
hurry. Let's not create a
paved city. We want open
space and green. We would
hope to achieve this result by
creating low rise and mixed
use development. I'd like to
see the area become a
destination where walkers
can catch the ocean breezes,
friends can meet for coffee,
and lovers can stroll the
walkways hand-in-hand.
We're finding our way. It
will come."
Before the big boat
parade, the Raysons will
enjoy a brief vacation in
Paris where John spent his
Junior year in college.
"Kathy and I will revisit
some of my old haunts and
try new places I could never
afford as a student."
Asked what happens
when his stint as mayor is
over? "We'll see," he
replies.
Thank you, Mayor
Rayson, for your service to
the people of Florida and the
residents of Pompano Beach.


Broward County plants $64,000 in


DeGroff Park for native trees


By Paul Proia
PELICAN WRITER
Lighthouse Point received
grants through Broward
County's Tree Trust program
totalling more than $64,000 to
support a new tree canopy for
DeGroff Park.
According to Lighthouse
Point Commissioner Meredith
Chaiken-Weiss, the funds will
allow the city to acquire
several trees that are native to
the area which will give the
park a more natural setting.
"When I heard about the
tree trust, I thought this would
be a great way to get some
larger trees without costing
the city any money," said
Chaiken-Weiss, who admits
that projects such as these are
of a primary interest to her.
Chaiken-Weiss is also a
member of Broward County's
NatureScape committee.
On Tuesday, the Light-
house Point City Commission
approved funding and resolu-
tions that allow the city to
receive $15,000 more in
funding through matching
grants provided by Broward
County's Beautiful Green
SHADE and Beautiful Com-
munity Grants, bringing the
total funding for the park to
nearly $100,000.

purchased DeGroff Park from
the Florida Inland Navigation
District [FIND] using funds
from open space grants and
then deeded the park to
Lighthouse Point with the
stipulation that the city
remove the non-native
Australian Pines and replace
them with trees native to
south Florida. The grant will
do just that.
"More than 90 percent of
the trees we will acquire will
be native to the area," accord-
ing to Chaiken-Weiss. The
list of trees includes live oaks,
pigeon plums, cassia, royal
poinciana, greem button-
woods, coconut palms, wild
tamerinds and other trees.
"We selected these because
they provide homes for birds
and butterflies, berries, and
other elements natural to the
area."
And, the trees fit the goal
of a very passive setting.
"We are trying to create a
very natural park with a
pathway and butterfly gar-
den," she said.
While more than $60,000
of the tree trust grant will go
toward the trees, the remain-
ing $4,000 will cover costs
tied to the installation of an
irrigation system necessary to
support the various landscap-
ing projects.

This holiday, add a few new

names to your gift list

By Anne Siren
PUBLISHER

If you're feeling guilty about all the money you're spending on gifts,
food,.parties and clothes, here's an idea that can help give you a guilt-free
holiday.
Buy more.
But this time, buy it for a child in Pompano Beach who may otherwise
get little or nothing for Christmas.
On Christmas morning, Pompano Firefighters, BSO deputies and Assis-
tant Fire Chief Frank Ross, will ride the surrogate Santa Sleigh for hundreds
of kids.
However, Santa's helpers need gifts for their "Christmas Express," and
residents can drop them off at any of the six fire stations, listed below.
Several years ago, when Simon was a social worker in Pompano Beach,
she realized through her clients and referrals that the holidays were pretty
gloomy for many people who were struggling to keep their families clothed
and fed.
She and her brother decided to buy a few gifts and deliver them on
Christmas Day to certain homes in the city.
That started a tradition that began with gifts in the trunk of her car, and
today is a full-sized van packed with thousands of presents, ranging from
baby toys to bicycles.
This Christmas, the fire truck and vans full of toys will be greeted by
hundreds of excited young people. The generosity of this community will
make the difference between Santa's Sleigh or Santa's Slight.
Gifts should be new and unwrapped. Please drop them off at any of the
following Pompano Beach locations:

Station 11 3264 NE 3 St
Station 24 2001 NE 10 St
Station 52 -10 SW 27Ave
Station 61 2121 NW 3 Ave
Station 63 120 SW 3 St
Station 103 3500 NE 16 St

year.

Saving historic bank in

Pompano Beach demands

vision of city leaders

By Dan Hobby
POMPANO BEACH HISTORICAL SOCIETY
The threatened demolition of Pompano Beach's oldest commercial
structure, the Bank of Pompano, has engendered a great deal of discus-
sion on the appropriateness of historic preservation.
Too often, however, the focus has been on whether or not this single
building can or should be saved, and not on its significance to the revi-
talization of Pompano Beach's historic downtown.
The downtown, a commercial area lying north of Atlantic Boulevard
and east of Dixie Highway, is a valuable community resource. It is one
of the few areas in Broward County that contains a significant number of
contiguous historic structures in a well-defined district.
Throughout the nation, local governments have created vibrant,
economically viable entertainment and retail districts by rehabilitating
their old downtown. One need look no farther than Fort Lauderdale's
Himmarshee Village, and area that twenty years ago was home to drug
dealer and hookers. Over the years, various proposals were made to
demolish and rebuild, but those with foresight and perseverance pre-
vailed. Today, it is one of the most popular places in South Florida.
Ironically, the nearby newly-built Las Olas Riverfront suffers finan-
cially.
The ultimate fate of the Bank of Pompano is about more than just one
building, as important as it might be. Rather, its preservation is essential
to revitalizing Pompano Beach's historic downtown not only as a tax
generator, but as something that is unique to this community and of
which its citizens can be proud.
If we move forward, save the Bank of Pompano, and take the actions
needed to revitalize Pompano Beach's downtown we will not be sorry.
All the tools are available, all we need is vision.

Saturday, December 11,2004 The Pompano Pelican 7


LBTS
Continued from page 1
What immediately came to
the attention of residents was
the higher costs of fire
suppression services. The
Volunteer Fire Department
costs the town about $500,000
to operate two engines and
organize 38 volunteers. The
services provided by Broward
County cost about $1.5
million for one engine and
four professional firefighters,
including one firefighter who
is cross-trained to provide
advanced life support ser-
vices. For each household in
the old section of town,
annual service costs increased
from $92 to about $260.
However, Mayor Oliver
Parker says that the county
provides more than just fire
Suppression and emergency
medical services to the town.
"They provide us with back
up. They are guaranteed to
provide service. And, they
have mutual aid agreements
with Fort Lauderdale and
Pompano Beach, which
guarantees that we have'
appropriate services available
for worst case scenarios."
The biggest worst case
scenario includes a serious
fire in one of the many fifteen
story condominiums. Re-
sponse to such a fire would be
four engines and 28
firefighters with at least a
level-two firefighter certifica-
tion. VFD would require two
more engines, at least one
with a longer ladder, and
more firefighters who have
passed level two certification.
According to VFD Fire
Chief Ian MacLean, only 15
volunteers have completed
level two certification, while
another 16 have completed
level one. There are also four
volunteers who are certified
paramedics and 11 who are
certified emergency medical
technicians [EMT].
MacLean agrees with the
Mayor's assertion that the
volunteers need backup. "It's
actually the best opportunity
for us to grow and develop."
Both MacLean and Parker
recognize that the contract
with the county provides the
town with training, another
valuable service.
MacLean says, "If I need
to send people out for train-
ing, we can get the county to
cover our zone."
The mutual aid agreements
the county has with Pompano
Beach and Fort Lauderdale
provide additional resources.
The Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment is not able to live up to
these agreements, which
necessitates the contract with
the county. According to
MacLean, the Fire Chiefs
Association needs to certify


that the VFD can meet mutual
aid obligations, but in order to
do that, MacLean says, "we
need a significant investment
from the town."
Petitioners
demand
alternative to
contract
Members of the Save-our-
Town Citizens committee are
willing to support making that
investment. On election day,
the committee collected
signatures on a petition that,
under Article IV provisions in
the town charter, would allow
a referendum that could force
the city to expand the finan-
cial support for the VFD and
eliminate paying Broward
County for services.
On Nov. 22, committee
member Doug Bosley deliv-
ered the petition with 702
signatures to the Lauderdale-
By-The-Sea Town Clerk,
Alina Nedina. Nedina and
others reviewed the petition,
determined that 595 signa-
tures were valid, and for-
warded the signature list to
the Broward County Supervi-
sor of Elections to confirm
that the signatures were those
of registered voters. Valid


signatures must represent 10
percent of the town's regis-
tered voters or at least 480 of
the 4,793 voters.
Nedina expects to hear
from the county this week
regarding the status of the
count and an expected deliv-
ery date which can be pre-
sented to the town commis-
sion on Dec. 14.
Bosley says that citizens
are pushing the petition
process because he.and others
want a guarantee from the
town government that the
VFD will be supported.
Bosley notes, "We want to
make sure that the commis-
sioners keep their word. They
never say 'we will definitely
work with the volunteers, give
them the resources, and meet
the goals in a specific amount
of time.' They say, 'we'll
think about it,' but it's never
guaranteed."
Parker says the commis-
sion is meeting in January to
discuss a program that would
provide resources to expand
the volunteer fire department
over the next three years,
review the results of that
expansion, and then determine
if the contract with Broward
County can be cancelled.
MacLean adds that the

contract with the county is for
five years, so whatever
program the city comes up
with will likely continue until
the contract expires.
Parker says he wants to
expand the role of the volun-
teers but not at the risk of
the citizens. "We have a
fiduciary duty to the town to
provide them with adequate
fire protection," says Parker.
"I'm not willing to save $1
million if it puts lives and
properties at risk."


One thing everyone agrees
on is the skill of the Volunteer
Fire Department. Since 1961,
only one fire got significantly
out of control, and that was
the famous Fountainhead Fire
in 1992, where the fire was
deliberately set and deliber-
ately unreported so as to
guarantee a large amount of
damage.
According to Chief
MacLean, "We don't have big
fires because we put them out
when they are small."

Tree dedication

honors late APDA

director at North

Broward Medical

Center

Friends, community members
and co-workers recently attended a
tree dedication at North Broward
Medical Center in honor of Barbara
Brown, former director of the
American Parkinson Disease Asso-
ciation (APDA).
Brown passed away in September
2003. The dedication was held
following a luncheon for persons
with Parkinson's and their care
partners.
Faye Kern, coordinator in St.
Petersburg, presented a plaque from
APDA coordinators across the
nation to North Broward Medical
Center CEO Pauline Grant to be
placed with the Magnolia tree
planted on the North Broward
campus.
Brown was well known and
widely respected for her extensive
work with major national organiza-
tions associated with stroke, heart
disease, diabetes and Parkinson's.
She served as the director of the
American Parkinson Disease
Association's Information and
Referral Center for four years, until
her death in 2003.
"Barbara was a very special
person. Her dedication to serving
those affected by Parkinson disease
touched many people," said Grant.
"This tree is a fitting memorial and
we will think of her as we watch it
grow."

Shoppers who are tired of seeing
the same selections in furnishings and
accessories are certain to get excited
by the unusual inventory at Surround-
ings, at 555 S. Federal Highway.
Owner Evan Corey took over an
existing furniture store just this past
August and has added his own selec-
tion of eclectic gifts and home furnish-
ings.


Next door to Bikini Bob's, Sur-
roundings is stocked with reasonably
priced, high-end merchandise custom-
ers expect to find on Los Olas or in
Boca Raton. Corey sighs and says,
"I'm afraid Surroundings is the best
kept secret in town. It's so easy to
drive right by, but every day more
people are discovering us. They tell
one another that my store is the place
to find something different, something
useful for hard to please people on
their gift lists."


Born and raised in the New York
area, Corey is a Manhattan man all the
way. He's a former fashion designer
who worked with the Oleg Cassini
organization in the 80s. From fash-
ions, he moved into interior design
and says he's well recognized for his
decorating of estates and homes in
New York and New Jersey. "I came to

Lighthouse Point Chamber


members get together at library


By Paul Proia
PELICAN WRITER
Citing untapped opportunities for
expanding local businesses, Thomas
H. Becker, PhD told members of the
Lighthouse Point Chamber of Com-
merce that the growth of savvy,
cosmopolitan Latin Americans has
great potential for area merchants and
service providers.
The Chamber of Commerce held a
"Breakfast at the Library" gathering in
the lobby outside the Lighthouse Point
Library last month.
Becker, a long-time Lighthouse
Point resident with a career in private
enterprise and education supporting
international business to Central and
South America, recently released his
book Doing Business in the New Latin
America through Greenwood Publish-
ers. He summarized main points by
showing that Latinos have fueled
population and economic growth in
Fort Lauderdale and West Palm
Beach, as well as in a number of other
cities in the southeastern United

President Lynn Spinella Pagans.


States.
"These immigrants want physical
safety, safe investments, and a sense
of community," said Becker, "and
Lighthouse Point offers all three of
these things at an A-plus level." He
added that Latinos expect a very
personal relationship when doing
business, including building personal
trust and attention.


Patti Smith, Editor of the Lighthouse Point
Viewpoint Newsletter and Linda Godsey of
the Lighthouse Point Yacht and Racquet
Club.

Prior to Becker's presentation,
members of the chamber were greeted
by Library Director, Doreen Gauthier
and City Administrator, John Lavisky.
Tea at Lilys provided a breakfast
buffet, and both Gauthier and Lavisky
spoke with chamber members during
the gathering. Chamber President,

I'm here, I've already done
design consulting. My clients
are customers who shop the
store."
He no sooner finished his
sentence when Danielle Mann
came in to have a look
around. She had driven from
Deerfield, but her restless
young son made looking
around a challenge. Still,
when she spotted a granite
top vanity, she became very
excited. "It's exactly what
I'm looking for," she said
"and $900 is an excellent
price. I'm thrilled. I'll be
back tomorrow, without my
son, to do some serious
shopping. Everything is
beautiful and very upscale."
Corey tours shoppers
around the store, calling
attention to the variety of
candle holders, ranging in
price from $30 to $130. His
silk flowers look real enough
to put in a vase filled with
water. Framed art work and
unusual mirrors catch the eye.
Striking pieces of hand
painted furniture are cleverly
placed throughout the store.
He has faux period desks,
sideboards, buffets, side
tables, armoires and benches.
"These ornate sink vanities
are the hottest decorating


pieces selected for bathroom
upgrades," he says, pointing
out several different types.
"Look at these wonderful
accessories," he raves as he
walks around holding up one
treasure after another. There
are matching picture frames,
jewel boxes, music boxes,
candle sets, bronze sculptures,
wall sconces, decorative patio
pieces, ornate lighting fix-
tures, unusual lamps, pillows,
fun wall hangings and more.

There's no clowning around when it

comes to kids' safety according to

Pompano Beach fire fighters


By Paul Proia
PELICAN WRITER
Perhaps the biggest hit dur-
ing the Yuletide on Atlantic
Parade was watching clowns
negotiate a miniature fire truck
up and over the Intracoastal
Waterway Bridge.
On the way up the bridge,
the five clowns pushed the ve-
hicle with all their might nearly
backing into a marching band
that kept stride behind the ve-
hicle. Then, after barely mak-
ing it over the bridge, the same
clowns wrestled with the ve-
hicle to keep it from running
over a marching dance troupe
in front of them.
"One girl in the band kept
asking us to stop picking on her,
but she really was a great sport,"
said Firefighter Scott Friend,
leader of the clown troupe.
"Afterwards, we visited with
the band conductor and thanked
him for letting us mess around
with his group throughout the
parade."
Friend has been a
firefighting clown for nearly 15
years. "A couple of us went to
the state fire college in Ocala,
and while we were there took a
clown fire course."
The idea behind clowns and
firefighting starts with using
more entertaining ways to teach
people fire safety. "The straight-


laced guy doesn't reach people,"
says Friend. "But we are able to
convey through the art ofclown-
ing the concepts of fire preven-
tion."
"We get a lot of laughs, for
sure, but kids remember stuff,"
says Friend. "We bounce
around, sometimes fake inju-
ries or do things wrong. Then
the kids shout out to us what we
are supposed to do. That's how
we know they are learning."
Clown classes teach kids and
parents how to dial 911 for
emergencies, how to stop, drop
and roll if their clothing catches
fire, and when to change smoke
detector batteries. "We teach
them to change the batteries
when they change the clocks
for daylight saving's time." The
clowns also teach pool safety,
bicycle safety, and seatbelt
safety. There are usually six or
seven skits during a forty minute
performance.
Recently, the clown troup
received an addition to the gang
- a miniature fire truck. The
truck was donated to the fire
department in 2003 by Steve
and Patti Hughes. "Our kids
play volleyball together," says
Friend. "Steve told me about
this fire truck. It's a real truck
which was used by a General
Motors factory in Ohio because
it was able to maneuver through


the assembly lines."
When the truck had to be
replaced, Hughes offered it to
Friend. Since then, the clown
troupe made several enhance-
ments to the vehicle, including
painting it to match the city's
design, removing dry chemical

FISHING WRITER
This past weekend things
have started to change with
the weather. Fish are biting.
Burt Moss and John Clark
and a couple of their buddies
caught nine sails and two
king fish to win a one-day
tournament out of Hillsboro
Inlet. How's that for a good
day's fishing?
Things should start to get
better every week as the cold
fronts continue to show up.
A few dolphin and wahoo
will be mixed in the same
areas. Use your trolling lines
with ballyhoo or fish with
live bait.
With the next full moon,
we should start to see some
shrimp runs making snook
and tarpon fishing that much
better.
'The last few weeks,
anglers have had their best
bites of the year from larger
swordfish. Some swords are
weighing in over 100 to 200
pounds.
Plenty of anglers who
have never tried sword
fishing broke down and tried
it this week only to catch
fish in the first hour.
Remember to release
what you don't plan to eat.

According to fifth-year Head
Coach Elvin Hazell, the key
word for his team is "adaptabil-

Hazell's Pompano Beach

season adapting to changes.
Many of his players were on the
playoff-bound football team,
which meant less time for his
squad to practice together.

First Baptist Church of forms basketball


program/spiritual program for kids


By Paul Proia
PELICAN WRITER
Looking to encourage fel-
lowship and basketball skills,
the First Baptist Church in Pom-
pano Beach is running its "Up
With Basketball" program for
elementary aged boys and girls
this winter. The first practices
begin on January 3rd. Games
are held each Saturday from
Januaryto March.
According to Activities Di-
rector Jack Woertz, "The goal
is Christian centered. We aim
to teach kids to love basketball
and love the Lord."
Perhaps the most impressive
part of the program is the novel
approach it takes to teaching
kids to play and learn sports-
manship.

evenly matched."
When games are held, there
are other rules designed to give
everyone a fair shot at success
and improvement. Top players
cannot defend weaker players,
there are no double-teams, and
everyone has to rotate in such
that no player sits for longer

Blanche Ely Tigers JV team plays in first soccer

match falling to Pembroke Pines 8-0


By Paul Proia
PELICAN WRITER

Blanche Ely made history
on Saturday, Dec. 4, playing
its first Girls Junior Varsity
soccer match, an 8-0 loss at
Pembroke Pines Charter.
"I was encouraged by the
effort these girls put out,"
coach Concepcion Ledezma
said. "They were doing
something our varsity girls
haven't been doing very much
in their games, and that's
communicating with each
other during the game. I was
really pleased with that. These
are the first stages of a
building process; the impor-
tant thing is that they're
having fun while improving."
Among the standouts for


the Tigers in their first JV
game were freshmen defender
Lisanne Lowitt, freshman
midfielder Adriana Cisneros,
and sophomore defender Ulda
Guerrier.

27-17 loss to
Edgewater
ends season
for Ely

The Blanche Ely Football
season came to an end in the
semifinals of the Florida
State Division 6A Football
Championships with a 27 -
17 loss to Edgewater High
School. Ely finishes the
2004 season with a 10 3


record, including a nine-
game winning streak before
losing to the Eagles.
Edgewater advances to
the final game for the third
straight season, and has lost
to the eventual champion in
each of the last four seasons.
This year, Edgewater will
face Miami Killian in the
finals. Killian shut out 2003
Champion Miami Carol
City, 17 0.
The final game will be
played at 8 p.m. at The
Swamp (Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium) on the University
of Florida campus, and will
be televised via tape-delay
on the Sunshine Network.

Concrete fences preferred by LHP to separate

commercial properties from residents


By Paul Proia
PELICAN WRITER
The Lighthouse Point Plan-
ning and Zoning Board is in-
creasingly forced to review
variance requests from com-
mercial property owners and
architects who are looking for
alternative options for fences
that separate commercial prop-
erty from residential property
along Federal Highway.
Peter St. George, agent for
Unique Motor Care at 2600 N.


Federal Highway,requested and
received tentative approval for
a. 6' PVC fence, provided he
landscape the side facing resi-
dential property and cannot find
an acceptable 8' alternative fenc-
ing product, to replace his 8'
concrete fence that had been
damaged during the September
hurricanes.
The ruling came about be-
cause St. George's original per-
mit application led to the city
and St. George receiving a let-
ter from the Broward County


Water District asking that he
put up a fence that is more eas-
ily moved, such as a PVC or
wood fence. The District
doesn't like concrete fences in
the water easements as they are
far more difficult to move or
work around when the county
has to service water lines.
Sun Trust Bank requested a


varience because a six foot PVC
fence already exists along the
neighboring property behind
Mario's restaurant. Architect
Nelly Martinez Williams was
ready to build an eight foot con-
crete fence, but it would have
sat next to six foot PVC fences

BSO charges teen

with child neglect


Broward Sheriff's
Office detectives arrested
a Pompano Beach teen on
Dec. 8, charging her with
child neglect after she left
her child with strangers at
a local motel.
The 15-year-old
mother approached two
women ages 16 and 18,
last Tuesday outside the
Motel 6 on NW 31st Ave.
She handed them her baby
boy and immediately left
the motel in a cab. For
several hours, the im-
promptu caregivers carted
the baby around and even
bought food and diapers.
At about midnight, the
teens called the Broward
Sheriff's Office.
Investigators learned
the young mother's name
and her cell phone num-
ber. Deputies had the two


teens call the mom to tell
her that she needed to
take her baby back. A
rendezvous was arranged
at a Shell gas station on
Hillsboro Blvd. in Deer-
field Beach. When the
mother failed to show up,
a second meeting was
arranged at an outreach
center on Hammnondville
Road in Pompano. At that
location, the 15-year-old
appeared at about 3 a.m.
(Wed.) and was taken into
custody.
The 15-year-old sus-
pect was charged with
child neglect and was
transported to the Juve-
nile Assessment Center
for processing.
The baby boy is in
good health and was
placed in state custody.

Fences
Continued from page 13
on two sides. In addition to the
section adjoining Mario's Res-
taurant, another ten foot section
at the south end of the property
covers another county water
line,and the approved site plans
called for a six foot fence there
as well.
However, during each peti-
tion, City Commission Presi-
dent Michael Long argued
against providing variances.
"The code calls for an eight foot


concrete fence for a reason,and
that is to protect residents from
sound, vehicles, and other
items," said Long. "Allowing a
six foot PVC fence when code
calls for an 8' concrete fence is
essentially gutting our code."
The Planning and Zoning
Board considered Long's argu-
ment in its ruling for Sun Trust
Bank. In this case, the bank's
landscape design will contain
the eight foot concrete fence, as
well as the short section of PVC
fence when construction of the
new bank at 3800 N. Federal
Highway is completed.

Holiday shopping could produce new job


By Paul Proia
PELICAN WRITER
'Tis the season for finding
a new job, says Michael
Cam, chair of the Broward
Workforce Development
Board. "We understand that
being unemployed is difficult
no matter the time of year -
but especially during the
holidays. It's important for
people not to give up looking
for employment during the
holidays."
Kelly L. Allen, marketing
manager for WorkForce One
agrees. "There is a myth that
companies stop searching for
qualified job applicants
during the holidays when the
opposite is true." Allen notes
that many businesses begin


deciding what jobs will be
filled for the new year at this
time, and many opportunities
may become available
through "trial runs" given to
seasonal employees.
Allen also recommends
that job searchers stay busy
regardless of the type of pay
or work available. "One of
the things we emphasize to
folks is that temporary work
is better than no work. Even
local volunteer opportunities
give people chances to
network. We all know that all
jobs are not listed in the paper
or on the internet, and there
are other ways to market
yourself."
The Broward Workforce
Development Board offers
several valuable tips when


searching for jobs during the
holiday season, including:
Take advantage of part-
time seasonal work it's a
great way to earn a job when
the holidays are over.
Send applications and
resumes out during the
holiday season companies
on a calendar year budget will
make decisions about next
year's personnel at this time;
Network at holiday
parties many times the best
source for job information is
your friends and new acquain-
tances;
Seek help from organiza-
tions for job counseling and
financial assistance places
like WorkForce One are paid
for out of funds you and
previous employers funded


through taxation;
Update the resume and
get it in front of people use
as many online and career
search opportunities whenever
possible;
Use staffing industries -
more and more employers are
using "contingent workers",
which frequently turn into full
time opportunities.
WorkForce One is the
administrative agency of the
Broward Workforce Develop-
ment Board, a non-profit
organization that provides
services to businesses and job
seekers in Broward County.
A WorkForce One resource
center is located in Pompano
Beach at 2301 W. Sample
Road.

Visions of sugar- plums and
the enticing aroma of ginger-
bread baking in the oven
make holiday traditions come
alive for friends and family.
While the candy-studded
gingerbread house is a
charming favorite, ginger-
bread can be fashioned into
all sorts of fanciful creations,
even a gingerbread sleigh
dashing through candy snow.
The kids will delight in
becoming Santa's helpers
when it comes time to deco-
rate the sleigh. The result
makes an impressive center-
piece with bags of gourmet
jelly beans nestled inside as if
delivered by Santa himself. A
full-sized pattern for the
sleigh is available at
www.jellybelly.com or
www.grandmamolasses.com.
This holiday season there's a
shortcut to the fun with a
single gingerbread recipe that
takes on many forms and
flavors. Especially welcome
is a recipe that can be made
ahead and refrigerated for
later baking and decorating.
Gingerbread pairs well with
chocolate, coconut or rasp-
berry jam filling in cookie
bars. Let the festivities begin!

Lucky Bird's

Nest
By Donna Torrey
GARDEN WRITER
Now that your trees are
growing taller, remember that
the lower branches don't move
upwards with the tree. Their
location on the tree is permanent.
Therefore, it is necessary to
"limb up" your trees on a regular
basis. You should aim for at


least 6-8 feet of clear trunk.
If you train your trees when
they are young, in the first 3
years or so, they will be much
less troublesome for you in the
future. It is a lot easier to cut off
a 1-2 inch diameter limb with
loppers, than to have to saw off
4-5 inch limbs with much more
biomass attached.
If you neglect this simple
task now, you will pay dearly
later, often in the shape of wind
damage that could cost you the
tree.
I was in the process of doing
the task I describe when I
spotted a bird's nest.
Then, I remembered this past
summer hearing loud cardinal
voices outside my bedroom
window. As much as I am
puttering about, those rascals
had managed to hide the nesting


activities from me; for as I
sawed off the limb and pro-
ceeded to chop it up into pieces
for mulch, I found the nest.
Bird's nests are marvelous
creations! They are the original
basket weavers. This nest was
built with slender twigs, cat hair
from my Persian, with a piece of
plastic woven in.
I found about 60 Barbados
cherry pits picked clean and
piled on one side of the nest.
The tree is right next to the nest


tree, and I could picture vividly
those smart cardinal parents
plying their brood with one after
another of those juicy morsels.
No wonder I never seemed to
find the ripe ones! So even
though the little family eluded
me during its critical nesting
period, they left me a precious
treasure.
It's a Christmas custom to put
an old bird's nest in your tree for
good luck. This could turn out to
be a very good year.

S, founder of
the Automo-
bile Protec-
tion Asso-
ciation and
former
member of Canadian Parlia-
ment, has successfully battled
carmakers on the streets and
in the Supreme Court.
Edmonston and his wife,
Michelle, live in Lauderdale-
By-The-Sea. Email Phil at
lemonaid@earthlink.net
Phil: Tell your readers to
stay away from the 1996 Sat-
urn.0 You cah't get parts, and it
is a piece of junk. Only 2 cylin-
Sders firing, my mechanic can't
find the problem, the ignition


module was replaced to see if it
was the source, and it still won't
run properly.0 The check engine
light used to come on all the
time, and the car had no power in
the rain. The wires were replaced
3 times, the plugs replaced many
times. Carbon buildup was
cleaned up twice before. I bought
it in 2000 for $6500 with about
50,000 miles. It is not worth my
while to fix it up.
M.B.
Answer: Let's be frank. You
bought a bad car for a good price.
I call the Saturn a 'lemon' in my
Lemon-Aid Used Car Guide
mainly because it has had seri-
ous engine, transmission, elec-
trical system, brake, and body
problems. Trade the car in for a
Cavalier or Sunfire, if you must
buy GM, if not, go for a used
HyundaiElantraorTiburon. But,
don't sink another penny into the
car.

second graders, referees
don't call fouls but stop play
to teach the kids the rules or
mechanics of the game.
Woertz says, "We really
want the referees to be extra
coaches for the younger
kids."
Parents are also trained -
they are given manuals that
describe the system as well
as list obligations for paren-
tal behavior. "It's all about
stressing the positive", notes
Woertz. "It's 'nice pass', or


N I MIAMI
wouanuanunamunit.


'nice shot', or 'nice call, ref."'
Woertz's program is very
successful, with nearly 350
kids signing up to play each
year. "And we do it without
advertising," claims Woertz,
who says that this program is
the best kids basketball pro-
gram he has seen in his more
than 50 years involvement in
the sport. "It's grown in the
nine years we have run this
program, and everyone has a
great time."
For more information
about the "Up With Basket-
ball" program, please contact
Jack Woertz at First Baptist
Church by calling 954-745-

Basketball

Continued from page 11
off to a hot start, winning its
first two games against Piper
and Blanche Ely. Unfortu-
nately, poor free throw
shooting contributed to losses
in the next three games,
including a loss to Coral
Springs Charter when the
Golden Tornadoes missed
eighteen free throws in a
nine-point loss.
"Free throw shooting
killed us last year in the
district playoffs," said Hazell.
"We missed nineteen free
throws in our game against
Cardinal Gibbons and lost by
four points."
Hazell has high expecta-
tions for his team despite the
sluggish start and lack of
home games. "First of all,
we're playing a freshman at
center, Jeff Pelage, who has
skills and is the tallest guy on
the team. He'll need experi-
ence to round into form."
More importantly, Hazell
says, is getting the juniors
who missed time early for
football to get used to playing
together.
Demetrius Randolph,
Kelvin Thompkins, and
Myron Lewis are all double-
digit scorers, which means
Hazell always has at least one
hot hand going per game.
All three are juniors. In
fact, the team is loaded with
talent at the eleventh grade
level but Hazell isn't
waiting for his team to
dominate as seniors. He
wants to win the district this
year.
"By mid-January, we
should be running on all
cylinders. We're a bit tired
right now, and we're adapting
to changes. But by the end of
the season, we should be a
force in the district."
The death of Laguerre left
the team in a lurch as Hazell
and Laguerre were the only
coaches who were on campus
during the school day. Hazell
has Assistant Coach Sean
Thompson helping to manage
the JV team for the remainder
of the season. Laguerre's
death is a mystery. The 27-
year-old Laguerre had
returned home following a
trip to New York.
Telling his girlfriend that
he didn't feel well on the ride
home from the airport, he
unexpectedly passed out and
died on Nov. 28. Even now,
Hazell and Athletic Director
Taunya Dix don't know what
caused his death.
Dix said, "The kids were
devastated, the school was
devastated, and we were all
confused by his death."
Still, the team adapts. The
inability to use the gymna-
sium for little more than


practice means every game is
played on the opponents' home
floor. Hazell says it contributes
to his team being fatigued.
"We were forced to merge our
games with the Girls basketball


Shoal Creek

Bascombe complimented
the project, saying, "I like
the plan a lot it's a
definite positive feature
for Lighthouse Point."
Board member Steve
Zimmerman agreed. "I
really didn't like the first
plan. With this plan, I feel
relieved. I nave no hesita-
tion with the plan at all."
Despite the attendance
of about 15 residents of
the South Winds Mobile
Home Park, no one spoke

games instead of two on a given
day. The nights are long, and we
get little fan support in the enemy's

Next week, the Golden

one resident interrupted the
proceedings and yelled out,
"It was a foregone conclu-
sion, anyway."
Mobile home residents,
who have already received
notices to vacate the prop-
erty or move their homes,
will have one more chance
to voice their opinion when
the planning and zoning
board recommendations are
considered by the Light-
house Point City Commis-
sion, likely at the meeting
to be held on Dec. 14.

Tornadoes face perhaps the two
best teams in the district.
Pompano Beach High School
travels to Cardinal Gibbons on
Monday, followed by a
Wednesday game against North
Broward Prep.


Mayor Fred Schorr said
he was happy with the
final results. "I think it's
going to be a good
project," Schorr said. In
considering the plight of
the mobile home owners,
Schorr said there is
nothing the city can do.
"I wish there was
something we could do to
help them other than
asking the developer to
stay in contact with
homeowners and assisting
them as much as possible,
which I have already
done."

more room on the inside, among
other repairs. "We're in the
process of repairing a pump that
came with the truck," added
Friend. "When it's done, we'll
have a fully functional hose. And
kids love spraying water."
The fire engine was dubbed
"Lil Squirt" and now is a regular
member of the routine. Five of
the clowns joined Lil Squirt for
the Yuletide on Atlantic Parade
and were so successful in their
performance that the city recog-
nized it as the best performance
of the parade. The clowns will
be recognized for their perfor-
mance at the Dec. 14 city com-
mission meeting.
"The clowns really work well
together and most of it, like the
routine on the bridge, was to-
tally improvised." Friend adds,
"All of us love doing what we
do, and plenty of others want to
join in the fun. And kids learn
stuff'with a smile. You can't
beat that."
