banK remains on
death row

Pompano Beach commissioners
agreed to ask City Manager William
Hargett and the city attorney to
review every possible alternative to
save the condemned Bank of Pom-
pano Building from the wrecking
ball. One of the options was to have
the city manager request that the
unsafe structures board reconsider
the demolition order after learning
that Broward County Mayor Kristin
Jacobs would provide the city with
$500,000 from the county's preser-
vation fund.
City Attorney Gordon Linn
suggested hiring outside counsel to
file a "friendly lawsuit" against the
city on behalf of the Western Com-
munity Redevelopment Agency
[CRA] to stay the building's execu-
tion.
Without a reconsideration, the
city is obligated to demolish the
building per the condemnation order
originally issued more than two
years ago.

Inn fits the need,

says manager

By Paul Proia
PELICAN WRITER
While the city awaits an update to
the Atlantic Point mixed-condo-
minium and retail shop project, and
with a recent district court decision
that allows the city to sell recreational
parking lots located on the beach,
Mayor John Rayson is on the stump to
bring a destination hotel and conven-
tion center to Pompano Beach.
"I'm encouraged now and then
when I meet people who used to visit
here," Rayson told members of the
Pompano Beach Civic Association on
Nov. 19.
To spur local tourism, Rayson is
calling for a destination hotel. "We
can have a very legitimate four-star
resort hotel, like a Hyatt or a
Mandalay Bay. We need a hotel like
that and a convention center nearby."
However, in describing his vision,
Mayor Rayson suggested that the
Holiday Inn would not be part of the
city's ocean skyline.

Lighthouse Point anglers have hauled in another


fishing tournament to complement Keepers Days


By Paul Proia
PELICAN WRITER
Lighthouse Point's Keeper
Days is angling to attract
those who love to fish to the
first annual Keeper Days
Fishing Tournament.
According to Lighthouse
Point Parks and Recreation
Director John Trudel, "As we
are a waterfront, family-
oriented community, why not a
fishing tournament for the
kids?"
Trudel's idea soon ex-
panded to include both kids and
adults, and now the city is
planning to have the tourna-
ment on the Saturday before
the regular Keeper Days
activities.
To help with the tourna-
ment, committee members
recruited Captain Skip Smith,
who then recruited others to
participate on the committee or
become tournament sponsors.
Smith, who is the Vice
President of the Fort Lauder-
dale Billfish Tournament and
director of the Custom Boat
Shootout, is excited about the
opportunity to run a tourna-
ment aimed at kids. "I remem-
ber fishing in my first tourna-
ment off of a seawall as a kid.
When I was approached to
participate, it seemed like a
good thing to do. Suddenly,


we had a lot of ideas on how
to do something specific for
children. It'll be a lot of fun,"
said Smith.
Registration day is sched-
uled for Feb. 4 at Dan Witt
Park at 5 p.m. for Lighthouse
Point residents only. It
includes a "kickoff party" that
features casting competitions
and opportunities for kids to
learn how to throw a cast net
or a fly rod, and even cut and
rig bait.
Smith adds, "we'll have
plenty of smelly stuff for the
kids." Smith adds.
There will be three divi-
sions for children: kids ages
10 12, 7 9, and for those
who are six and under.
During the tournament,
contestants can fish from any
bridge or canal within the city
limits. Grand prize winners
will receive halfcday chartered
fishing trips with a parent on
one of three boats, the Bolo,
the Quetzel, or the Rebound.
There will also be a
division for teens aged 13 to
16. This division can head
out along the intracoastal
from the Hillsboro Inlet jetties
inland, between the Atlantic
Boulevard bridge and the
Hillsboro Boulevard bridge.
The grand prize winner
will receive a tarpon fishing


trip with Captain Bouncer
Smith.
Adults can head out to sea
where the competition is
based on scoring rules tied to
variety and weight.
There will be trophies for
winning boats and anglers
based on size, and cash prizes
for the overall contest as well


as a billfish only bounty.
In shore division contests
are catch and release in nature.
Complete contest rules will be
available at registration.
Lightweight fishing rods
and reels donated by Sports
Authority will be given to the
first thirty kids ages six and


under who sign up on regis-
tration day which is sched-
uled for Feb. 4 at 8 p.m. at
Dan Witt Park. Fees are $15
for kids, $25 for teens, and
$295 per four-person boat.

HANDLE ACID WITH CARE
by Melanie S. Hecker, M.D., M.B.A.
Millions of women use skin-care products that contain the popular
anti-aging ingredients known as alpha hydroxy acids. If you are one of
hrcm, you should be aware that the very ingredients used to reduce signs
of aging may well be causing skin to age by increasing the risk of
sunburn. Alpha hydroxy acids help the skin maintain a more youthful
appearance by increasing the rate of cell turnover. This can be beneficial
because, as we age. the rate al which we shed skin cells slows down,
which contributes to more wrinkled-looking skin. While alpha hydroxy
acids combats this aging effect, they also increase the rate of
skin-damaging sunburns. Thus, alpha hydroxy should always be used in
conjunction with sunscreen.
If you are worried about the appearance of aging or sun damaged skin.
instead of experimenting with products that may or may not help, see me.
The lotions available over-the-counter can't match the effectiveness of
medications available only by prescription. When your skin needs an
aesthetic boost, call HECKER DERMATOLOGY GROUP. PA. at (954)
783-2323. The offices are located at 1800 North Federal Highway, Suite

City to update fence ordinances


Lighthouse Point busi-
nesses could be dealing with a
new code regarding their
fences.
Current city code requires
that an eight foot concrete
fence be used to protect resi-
dences from activities and


noise on neighboring
commercial properties. Bro-
ward County utility organiza-
tions are reluctant to support
concrete fences where utility
easements are located and have
requested that property own-
ers use PVC or wood fences


instead. The city's planning
and zoning board recently be-
gan allowing variences for six-
foot PVC fences.
The new ordinance,requir-
ing eight-foot fences, should
go before the commission on
Jan. 11.

Pompano native, Shirley Farris, preservation activist


volunteers in three history-based organizations


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
Shirley Farris paints a
word picture of the old
Pompano downtown that
makes new residents wish
they could experience it.
According to Farris, it will
come alive and stay alive if
the community lends its
support to the Sample
MacDougald House, The
Pompano Beach Historical
Society and the Saturday
morning Green Market, the
three causes for which she
volunteers almost non stop.
On a recent Saturday,
Farris was working the
Historical Society's booth at
the Green Market. She was
delighted to talk about the
market, saying, "The purpose
of the Green Market is to
create interest and hopefully
preserve this historic down-
town. The original farmer's
market was in this very spot.
As a child, growing up here,
this downtown was mine and
everyone's destination
because it offered a restaurant,
a pool hall, a dry goods store
and a drug store. My friends
and I sat on high stools at the
soda fountain sipping vanilla
cokes and reading the 'funny
books,' now known as comic
books. It was a great area to
grow up in and I would like to
help preserve this site, or at

least what is left of it."
The Pompano Historical
Society booth helps to gener-
ate interest in local preserva-
tion and history. "We sell
some of our books on local
history, entice interested
visitors to join our society,"
Farris explains, "and support
for the Green Market which is
our baby. When our commit-
tee began to develop the
concept of this market, we all
thought, 'Every Saturday
morning for 30 weeks is a big
commitment.' It turns out be
such a fun and exciting
gathering place that if I must
go out of town on a Saturday,
I actually hate to miss it. I
think everyone on our com-
mittee feels the same way.
Last year, I focused my
efforts on getting food
vendors. We're happy with


our newest vendor who brings
us fresh fish and seafood from
Key West, including stone
crabs. This year, I'm working
on getting more sponsors.
This is a super spot for service
clubs to fund raise."
In addition to the hours
poured into the Pompano
Beach Historical Society and'
the Green Market, Farris finds
time for the Sample
MacDougald House Preserva-
tion Society, which she says
"is totally separate from the
historical society, though
many of the same people are
involved in it. One day it will
be a wonderful museum, but
we can only move along with
restoration as our funds
permit. As a member of the
fund raising campaign, my
job has been to chair the roast,
our biggest annual fund raiser.


Each year, we work on this
affair from early fall until it
happens in February. Being
chair has been a lot of fun but
it is very time consuming. My
biggest pleasure comes from
the many new friends I have
made in the process and I am
proud of our success in
raising a total of about
$70,000. Of course, I'm
grateful to my wonderful
committee and Dan Hobby,
whose support and knowledge
have been invaluable."
Hobby, executive director
of both the 'house' and the
historical society, calls Farris
"an outstanding volunteer and
leader in all three efforts. He
says, "What's unique about
Shirley is her ability to handle
the top job and the ease with
which she can and will switch
to do a mundane task if it


While working the
Pompano Beach Histori-
cal Society's booth at the
Green Market on a
recent Saturday, Shirley
Farris recalls, "The
Original Farmers' Market
took place in this very
Spot when I was a child
growing up in Pom-
pano." [Photo by Phyllis

needs to be done. It's great to
be on a committee with -
Shirley because she's easy to
work with, gets along with
everyone and still has the
drive to accomplish-and she
does."
Before becoming the.
consummate volunteer, Farris
was a golfer and a home-
maker. She and husband, Jim,
have two sons, one daughter
and four grandchildren. "Only
one son lives in the area, and
his daughter, Ella, is great fun
for us as grandparents." And
then she admits, "If Ella needs
me for the day, I'm hers, even
if it means missing a meet-
ing."
The Farris family actually
had children attending
Pinecrest school for 28

who could bring in a four-star
destination hotel," said
Rayson. PBCA members,
many of whom live in condo-
miniums near the ocean,
agreed. When asked what the
city could do about the
Holiday Inn, the Mayor
responded, "I believe that the
city could condemn the
building using 'inverse
condemnation,' pay Holiday
Inn the assessed value of the
property and force them to
go.
According to Broward
County property appraisal
records, the Holiday Inn was
appraised at $3.525 million in
2003. Current owners pur-

for $2.6 million in 1978.

consecutive years. "Our
daughter Cady started pre-K
when our middle son wa< a
senior. During these years, I
did a lot of volunteering at
Pinecrest, serving in several
organizations including the
Founder's Council which I
chaired. When Cady left for
college, Don Downey talked
me into becoming active in
the Historical Society. The
rest is history."
"Why do I do it? I really
care about preserving what is


Jack Miller, Pompano
Beach Holiday Inn general
manager, believes his hotel is a
destination. "We serve far
more tourists than business
travellers, unlike the Holiday
Inn at 1-95 and Sheridan Road."
Miller has twice worked at
the Holiday Inn, starting with a
five-year run when the building
was a Howard Johnson's [1988
to 1992].
He returned in 2000 when
he oversaw a major renovation
of the hotel. "We put $4
million into the hotel when the
franchise was transferred from
Howard Johnson's to Holiday
Inn. We have a very nice
hotel."
The Holiday Inn's renova-
tion was completed in April,
2002. According to Miller, the
Pompano Beach site has the
second best customer satisfac-
tion rating of the nine Holiday


left of our historical area and
buildings. The Kester cottages
were reopened on Dec. 15,
when the renovation of the
museum was completed.
Margaret White and I got in
there and began to scrape and
paint ourselves. A group of
volunteers joined us and
together we actually did the
renovations ourselves. I get a
lot of satisfaction in seeing a
project completed, and since I
did grow up here, I really
want to see the old downtown
restored to become a destina-
tion once again. Thank you
Shirley Farris!


Inn properties in the Broward
metro region. It maintains a
low vacancy rates and also
serves as a destination for
residents who use the hotel to
host guests. "My numbers
show we're very successful,"
says Miller.
As to the mayor's comment,
Miller said, "We've been here
more than 30 years. Politicians
come and go."
City Commissioner Kay
McGinn [District I], who also
attended the meeting. "I'm
really not surprised [Rayson]
said it. This idea has been
floated around before."
However, McGinn says that
replacing the Holiday Inn with
condemnation is unlikely.

rooms starting in January.

Bank's history is crucial, its

recent repairs may have doomed

the building anyway
At the end of the December 14th City Commission meeting the Pompano
Beach commissioners, mayor, and city manager all agreed to pursue every
available option, including hiring outside legal counsel if necessary, to save
the Bank of Pompano Building.
If nothing else, it shows the city has good'intentions.
It doesn't matter how good the intentions are. The reason the building is
being demolished is because it's unsafe. The city and prior owners have had
ample time to hire a contractor, acquire legal building permits, and do
something appropriate to secure the building. To date, the only work done
to secure the building was done by unlicensed and unsupervised employees
which, according to the city's own building department, is unlikely to meet
city code.
If the city wants to get a reconsideration from the Unsafe Structures
Board, they should show up with the county's money or notification of a
resolution to spend money, a licensed contractor standing alongside them,
and a fistful of building permits. Otherwise, the city is needlessly spending
money and resources to save a building without actually fixing it.
It doesn't matter how many doctors stand around the patient and discuss
treatment options if nobody actually treats the patient the patient will die.


Pompano Pelican delivery

will be late next week
Christmas Day and New Year's Day both fall on Saturdays, the normal
delivery days for this newspaper. Because of the holidays, The Pompano Pelican
will be delivered on Sundays for the next two weeks.
We at this newspaper wish all of our readers and advertisers a very Merry
Christmas and Happy New Year.
Let's hope that the coming year will bring good things for everyone.
But before we carve the festive entree this holiday, be sure to check out at
least one way that you can serve the less fortunate in Pompano Beach,
Lighthouse Point and Lauderdale-By-The-Sea.
Lonliness,financial stress and illness will mar the upcoming days for many
in our community. Homeless people are facing terrible drops in temperature and
food is always needed in our local food shelters.
Contact your local church to see how you can make this holiday better for
those outside of your family and friends circle. Merry Christmas.

Writer "too kind" to


BSO in LBTS article

Dear Editor:

Kudos, Paul, on your article last Saturday ("LBTS Residents Upset Over
High Cost of County Fire Protection",Dec. 1 Ith, 2004). You made a real effort
to be fair, balanced, and complete.
Given my own strong feelings, though, I still feel you were too kind to the
BSO crowd. For instance, they do not provide four firefighters (unless you
count the Battalion Chief who may show up) only three, and one of those is
likely to be pulled away for EMS duties if a transport to the hospital.is required.

John B. Thompson,
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea



Maybe Pompano officials,

deserve the raise, but the

presentation lacked style

By Paul Proia
PELICAN NEWS
On Dec. 14, in the last public meeting of the year, the mayor and city
commission voted themselves a raise and an opportunity to participate in a
pension plan.
In general, there is no problem with that. There is no doubt that each
month our public servants work more than 100 hours doing the things we
expect them to do. They attend meetings, review ridiculously long legal
documents, mingle with the constituency, respond to various positive and
negative feedback, and kiss babies.
So to pay these people what probably amounts to less than 25 dollars an
hour for what appears to be, on the surface, a reasonably difficult white
collar job seems only fair.
You know what isn't fair?
The method.
In the case of raises, at some point the city should determine a fair and
level pay scale and then index the raises each year against the cost of living
in South Florida. That way, the raises are regular and dependable and we
don't have to go through the public process each year to determine salaries
and let people pot shot the commission about how being able to vote oneself
a raise appears more like self-service rather than public service.
The pension plan, however, is a different animal.
In this case, the process looked bad. Let's ignore, if possible, deciding
whether or not an elected official should get the same type of benefit
awarded to someone who performs some other service for the city without
having to get reelected every couple of years.
Rather, consider that the idea was first presented before the public in the
last meeting of the year smack dab in the middle of the holiday season.
Shouldn't the city have first voted to look into the possibility of participating
in the city's retirement plan and let the voters know that the process would
begin?
Then there is the issue of calling for an "emergency third reading" so as
to get the measure passed and approved in December and rush the process
along.
This is the sort of thing that public servants do that always seems to leave
a bad impression with the voters. If the process had started, say, in June
when the city could have voted to investigate participation, and then have all
three readings in, say, October and November, the process wouldn't have
looked so improper.
Getting a pension isn't necessarily improper. Being able to vote for that
pension isn't necessarily improper.
Slamming it through in one meeting at the end of the year so that the
contributions would begin in 2004 rather than 2005, however, appeared petty
and self-serving.
Politicians should know that in this line of work image is everything.

Tidy up those last minute gifts at the Pompano Green Market


By Dan Hobby
POMPANO BEACH HISTORICAL
SOCIETY
This will be the last Green
Market before Christmas so I
know some of you will be in
panic mode.
Well, you're in luck. Take
care of some of your gift pur-
chases right here at the Pom-
pano Beach Green Market.
The first place I'd go is to
Teaphoria. In addition to hav-
ing a cup of hot, special-blend
tea, you can buy one of Janel's
unique gift tea baskets.
Step right next door and pick
up gourmet coffees from
Pittelli's. They make great
stocking stuffers. Try "eggnog


spice" coffee today.
Want to really make a good
impression? Show up with a
gift from The Orchid Doctor.
He's got the most beautiful or-
chids in a wide range of prices.
Afraid that Aunt Gertrude will
not take care of the orchid you
want to give her? The doc gives
free advice.
And don't forget the Pom-
pano Beach Historical Society.
Why not give a friend a gift
membership in the Society?
They've also got books on lo-
cal history and t-shirts from the
historic Sample-McDougald
house.
While we're taking history,
we'll have Ruth Apple back with
her collection of fascinating his-


toric images.
Our friend John, the bread
czar over at Grains of Olde, is
cranking up the ovens to take
care of your holiday baked
goods. Last week he had some-
thing that looked like a moon
pie, but was a special ginger-
bread treat- it was so appropri-
ate for Christmas that one bite
and you were looking around
for St. Nick.
Want to make your own
holiday basket? Why not a spe-
cial "Florida" theme? OK, just
come on over to the Broward
Farm Bureau booth and get
nuts, preserves, sauces, honey
and other good stuff- all from
Florida.
You want a gift that keeps


giving? Speak to the people at
Wellness Plus. They've got
natural health.supplements that
will do a whole lot of good. And
the same goes for Oxyfresh,
too. They've even got some-
thing you can give your pet.
Alright, we've taken care of
our gift buying.
Now let's get our fresh fruits
and vegetables. The crops are
coming in and the quality is
going up while the prices are
coming down. McNab Produce
and Triple C Groves promise to
have a bumper crop of the best
produce available so don't
miss out this week.
Now,let me say this do not


leave the Green Market without
stopping by and visiting the
good people at John Knox
Village's Home Health Care
booth and getting your blood
pressure taken.
All this and so much more -
music, entertainment, food
(we're promised sausage and
peppers and frittatas this week).
So get in the spirit of the
season and come out this Satur-
day morning to the Pompano
Beach Green Market we're a
block north and east of the At-
lantic Boulevard and Dixie
Highway intersection, and
there's plenty of free parking.


IT'S SAFE
TO SAY THAT
WE ARE

IN VERY | SELECT COMPANY

Community Bank of Broward opens Deerfield

branch headed by well known banking team


Deerfield area
area bankers team up
to run newest Com-
munity Bank of
Broward branch
located in the Cove
shopping plaza,
Deerfield. Left to

President/Branch
Manager, Sue
Schwartz and seated

By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
P7 lough relatively
new, Community
Bank of Broward is a
vital presence in Broward
County. In just three years,
this new banking organiza-
tion, with corporate offices in
Weston, has opened eight
branches, the newest on Nov.
1 in the Cove Shopping Cen-
ter 337 S.E. 15th Terrace in
Deerfield Beach.
President and CEO of this banking
corporation, Bruce M. Keir, has said,
"With the string of out-of-state banks
merging into one another, we offer
Broward County depositors an alterna-
tive to the big bank way of doing


business. Our mission is to return to
local, traditional style of banking."
Dottie Reilly, vice president and
branch manager of this newest,
Deerfield branch says, "Theretta Hall,
assistant vice president and manager,
and I have been working together for
five years as a team at Union Planters.
Before that I worked at Southtrust
Savings of America for five years.
Actually, I've been in the area in
banking for over 20 years. And I've
been active in the business community
for years too! Currently, I'm serving
on the Boards of both Deerfield and
the Pompano Beach Chamber of
Commerce. Continuing, she elabo-
rates, "We see ourselves as a true
community bank, because we are right
here and nowhere else. Real people
answer our phones-during business
hours. When a client steps into this
branch, that client is greeted by name
and treated to true customer service.


Customer are treated as if they are in
private banking. If necessary we go to
our clients. We even use courier
service to help our busy profession-
als."
Asked if clients follow her from
bank to bank, Reilly responds, "This is
important. We respect the privacy act
and do not contact clients. They find
us through word of mouth and adver-
tising. Of course we welcome old
business relationships when they find
us."
Proving her point is Lise Kitze,
Deerfield, who says, "I've been
dealing with Dottie for six years.
You're never a number with her. She
makes you feel special. She's easy to
reach and the new Community Bank is
very convenient to me. I saw an ad
and was pleased to know where she
was."

won the Nobel Peace Prize in
1964.
The breakfast is a call to
local clergy to set the standard
of unity with all people in this
community.
"We will honor the legacy
of Dr. King. He is a hero. The
'Dream' speech is the best
thing I have ever read. This
was a vision to keep pressing
on," says Shelley.
Shelley has mailed letters
to local churches, hoping
church leaders will participate
in the breakfast.
But with a city of hundreds
of churches, Shelley is
counting on word-of-mouth
invitations as well.
Gary McCleod, secretary
of the Pompano Christian
SClergymen Council, calls the
Interfaith Breakfast" ... the
common cause of unity.
King's dream was that all
denominations and ethic
groups would come together.
There are no barriers. This is
a mandate that the ministers
first should come together to
show the unity of the clergy.
Then it will spread. As
pastors, if we can't come
together, how can we expect
the people to come together? I
hope a message of unity
comes out of this breakfast for
the betterment of this commu-


nity. Dr. King crossed every
line there was to accomplish
the goal of unity. I hope the
clergy can grasp the real
meaning and demonstrate that
we are all one. McCleod
serves as pastor at Mount
Sinai in Pompano Beach.
The speaker for the
breakfast has not been se-
lected, but the chef at Bethel
AME Church will cater a
menu of a full course morning
repast.
Tickets for the breakfast
are $7 each, but each church
will be offered two compli-
mentary tickets.
Other events scheduled
to honor Dr. King are:
January 7 State of the
Dream Banquet. 7 p.m.
Palm Aire Country Club.
The cost is $35.
January 15 Ninth Annual
5K Run. 7:30 a.m. at the
Mitchell Moore Recreation
Center, 901 NW 10 St., 901
NW 10 St. Pre-registration
is $22 per person.
January 17 Parade. All
businesses, groups and
churches are invited to
participate in the parade
that begins at 9 a.m. on 19
Ave. and MLK Drive.
All residents and businesses
are encouraged to join in
with the celebration.
For more information,
please call Joyce Jackson at

Bank
Continued from page 8

One loan can reduce
debt and interest
The management team
stresses some of the practical
reasons for the success of
Community Bank. Theretta
Hall says, "We offer home
equity loans with interest only
option and no closing costs on
loans up to $125,000.
Right now, a lot of home
owners are consolidating their
debts and using the equity in
their homes to take advantage
of the current low interest
rates. Having no closing costs
can save them hundreds of
dollars."
Reilly nods in agreement
and lists another advantage.
"We close faster on new
properties because we have
the technology and the local
underwriting decisions.
Because we understand the
local marketplace, we are able
to make faster decisions than
banks with underwriting
decisions being made in other
states."
Sue Schwartz, financial
service representative, brings
up another advantage. "The
fact that everyone is right here
is a real plus. Our head teller,
Angela Viola even speaks
fluent Italian and acceptable
Spanish and French. This is a
big help to many of our local
full time and part time resi-
dents. "


Viola adds her comments.
"Every person who enters this
new corner bank raves about
the warmth of the decor.
People like the cherry-colored
wood and the soft beige and
avocado color scheme. They
also comment on the friendli-
ness of the people working
here. We greet everyone with
a smile and by name if we
know it. We also protect our
customers with a photo and
signature I.D. in our computer
giving them instant identifica-
tion in all of our branches."
The Cove location is
working well for the new
bank. "We're surrounded by
small business," Reilly says,
beaming. "They attract traffic
to the area and have given us


fast acceptance in the center
and the surrounding areas. In
our short time here, we have
opened a lot of new accounts.
People like having a bank
nearby. We're close. We give
personal service and yet with
top of the line technology, we
can compete with the largest
bank in the country."
Eventually, Community
Bank hopes to expand to offer
drive-thru convenience, safety
deposit box vault and night
drop. Right now, it offers full
service, commercial banking
with all of the expected
products.
Open Monday Thursday
8:39-5; Friday 8:30 6. Call

It is cold and

the fish will

bite
This week we will see a
healthy increase in the sail
bites. At this time of year w
will start to get one cold
front after another. That
means sailfish from the

We will see a good early
morning bite aid a great bite
late in the afternoon. Most of
these fish are hitting live
ballyhoo which are very
easy to catch anytime of the
day. You do not have to pay
$60 a dozen or get up all
hours of the night to catch
these. All you need is a
n small hook, a little chum and
-a bobber in 15 feet of water.
They bite all day long.
Snapper and grouper
fishing have been great on
the reefs, and yellowtail
muttons also are hitting,
Swordfish bites continue
to be great as long as the
ocean is not too rough.
Southeast winds are the best

pounders are being pulled in
almost daily.
Tight lines and good

Young Lady Tigers have


age-old goals to beat the odds


By Paul Proia
PELICAN WRITER
When the Blanche Ely
Girls Basketball team takes
the court, the starting lineup
frequently includes three
sophomores and a freshman.
Despite the youth movement,
forced when several players
transferred to different
schools over the summer,
Head Coach Angelo Salcedo
hopes to double last year's
win total.
"The team won four games
last year," said Salcedo. "Our
goal is to win seven or eight
games."
Winning starts with senior
Keirston Dawson, who has
scored in double-digits in all
but one regular season game
this year, including a 28 point
performance against Pompano
High School in the team's
season opening victory.


Salcedo gives instructions to the Lady Tigers during a time-out in its game
against South Plantation. At front left is Keirston Dawson, Sr. Guard.


Salcedo says that while
Dawson is the team's leading
scorer, it's not even her best
attribute.
"Keirston is an awesome
defender," Salcedo notes.
"She gets up and down the


court really well, and if she
improves her ball handling
skills she might be able to get
into a Division One or Divi-
sion Two college program."

Sperry Holiday









IB o mSAuthentic Original Topsiders


Kids and grownups get a kick out of the town's fire engine at "Christmas-By-The-Sea in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea.


LBTS

Continued from page 1

"I've heard numbers
saying between four and
seven thousand attended.
But the best thing I heard
was from our members.
Merchants were as happy as
they could be. People found
out about some of our stores.
It was a great promotional
event."


Mayor Oliver Parker
agreed, saying that the plans
which called for people to
celebrate from the bridge to
the shore meant that busi-
nesses that were open during
the festival were deluged by
visitors throughout the
evening.
"I went to Tedesco's
(Commercial near
Bouganvillia) for a break,"
said Mayor Parker, "and they
had a waiting list all night


long." Parker added, "Mer-
chants who stayed open did
really well and were very
pleased with the event."
One way the city moved
people along Commercial
Boulevard was through the
use of hay rides. "We had at
least 800 people moving up
and down the street," stated
Davis, "which was exactly
what we wanted."

LBTS parks honor local


families in official renaming


Commissioners of Lauder-
dale-By-The-Sea voted to rec-
ognize prominent citizens of the
town by naming a variety of
park facilities in honor of their
contributions to the growth of
the town.
The Freidt Park and Recre-
ation Center was renamed Mu-
nicipal Park, while the play-
ground area was renamed "The
Freidt Family Playground." The
soccer field was renamed
"Firefighter's Field," the tennis
courts were renamed "The


Sylvia Neely Tennis Courts,"
and the bocce courts were re-
named "Spicola Courts."
The Friedt family is one of
the oldest names in town his-
tory, with Glenn Friedt, Sr. and
wife Lucie arriving in south
Florida from Michigan during
the 1930s.


Sylvia Neely owned an area
clothing store and once served
as the executive director of the
Chamber of Commerce.
Michael S. Spicola was a
commissioner in Lauderdale-
By-The-Sea. Spicola played a
significant role in the develop-
ment of Senior Park before he
died in 1985.

Lighthouse Point to consider Shoal Creek


By Paul Proia
PELICAN WRITER
Lighthouse Point City
Attorney Michael Cirullo
notified City Commissioners
that the next three commission
meetings would include
presentations related to the
Shoal Creek Properties, Inc.
proposal to build townhomes
where the Southwinds Mobile

commercial property now

On Dec. 20, Cirullo will

LBTS Chamber adds

100th new member


By Paul Proia
PELICAN WRITER
The Lauderdale-By-The-
Sea Chamber of Commerce
recently celebrated a milestone
event by signing up its 100th
new member during 2004
when Dairy Queen joined in
November.
"The growth has been re-
markable," says Executive
Director Judy Swaggerty."We
reached 300 members this
year, which is 30 percent more
than at any time of the
Chamber's existence."
According to Managing
Director William A. (Bill)
Davis, "We're getting more
members, and seeing more


activity at our meetings."
Swaggerty and Davis at-
tribute the growth to a change
in the Chamber's philosophy.
"We're doing more to pro-
mote our members,especially
the merchants," says Davis.
"As we have done more to
promote them, they get ex-
cited. And, people are getting
more involved in our other
events, like our Arts and Crafts
show, our Christmas celebra-
tions, and what not."
"We operate like a busi-
ness", says Swaggerty. "Good
businesses grow through suc-
cessful promotions and posi-
.tive results from our promo-
tions. We are seeing the re-
sults of our hard work."

candies.
Start a family album of holiday baking
photos and be sure to include the recipes.

A Special
Winter Visit
By Donna Torrey
GARDEN WRITER
'Twas the week before
Christmas and all through the
garden, lots of creatures were
stirring, begging your pardon!
This s a fantastic time of year to
view the wildlife that comes to
our native plantings.
All those seed and berry pro-


during trees, shrubs, and flow-
ers are like magnets for the lo-
cal bird life. It can take several
years before our plants are old
enough to provide good cover
for the birds, but lots of shrub-
bery really encourages shy birds
to venture close.
I was inside wrapping pre-
sents when I heard that familiar
"chip, chip" of the cardinal. I
looked out the window and spot-
ted a gorgeous red male, in all
his glory, sitting in the birdbath
having a wonderful time.
He kept hopping out onto
the edge, then in again, splash-
ing and romping. Then I saw
another bird in the bush nearby,
looking on, wanting a turn. I
thought it was a female cardinal
because it had a reddish belly,

While two seniors, Ericka
Smith and Glenda Gibson
give the team depth from the
bench, the rest of the starters
are underclassmen. Tiffany
Green andKimberly Porter
provides additional scoring
punch, Brittney Green is a solid
team player, and frosh center
Jessica Holton adds size, if not
experience, to the roster.
Roster size has been a
problem for the Lady Tigers.
The season began with just six
players. Diandro Murray,
another freshman, was added
early in the season from the JV
roster, and Tawny Fetridge
will become eligible to play in


January when the team hopes
to add victories down the
stretch.
"I know we can compete
because we have been close in
a couple of our losses,"
Salcedo points out. "Against
Coconut Creek, we lost by just
two points, and we lost a close
game to Taravella because,
with our inexperience, we
didn't put them away at the
end of the game."


Salcedo is in his first year
coaching at Blanche Ely,
though he has coached for nine
years at Nova Middle School
running the boys basketball
program.
For his coaching dogma,
Salcedo points to his own
experience as a football player
at South Carolina State Univer-
sity. "You go as hard as you
can and in the end, you've
won."

Raises

Continued from page 1
available immediately, rather
than wait for two subsequent
readings in January.
The pension plan calls for
elected officials to become
vested in the plan after five
years, or in three election
cycles with the city contribut-
ing funds to the pension plan
based on current salaries and
appropriate actuarial formu-
las. The actual benefit to
each vested elected or ap-
pointed official would be
equal to 2.5 percent times the
number of years served, times
the average of the person's
three highest salaries. As-
suming the new salary as the
average salary and a person
serving six years on the city
commission, a commissioner
would be entitled to receive
* an annual retirement benefit
of $4,200 after age 62.
City Manager William
Hargett said the cost to the


city for the new pension plan
Would be between $70,000 and
$75,000 in the first year. The
amount contributed each year
would vary depending on the
composition of the commission
and appointed officials.
Commissioner George
Brummer voted against the
pension saying he had concerns
about the plan's details,
including how it treats ap-
pointed officials differently
than general employees and
violates the goal of treating
each commissioner equally.
Some residents objected to
the commissioners voting
themselves raises and pensions,
saying that public servants
were part-time employees and
voters should be allowed to
make those decisions.
Commissioners responded
that they spent far more than the
city-defined part-time rate of 26
hours per week on the job. Vice
Mayor E. Pat Larkins said that
he took calls at all hours of the
day and used his own personal
computers and supplies at his


own expense. He added, "I'm
not going to hang around for
an extra ten years to pick up
an extra $600 or $700 a year
in retirement benefits."
Brummer added that in
addition to preparing for
meetings, meeting with staff,
and responding to personal
inquiries from his constitu-
ency, he regularly makes
himself available at City Hall
or at public gatherings.
Said Rayson, "I know of
four cities that have pension
opportunities: Miramar,
Hollywood, Lauderhill, and
Boca Raton," though he added
that he was unsure if his was a
complete list of cities. In
discussing the raises, he said,
"Pompano Beach is below
average in what we pay our
commissioners currently and
what we pay our mayor
currently. This change still
keeps us below the average."
Salaries for elected
officials have doubled since
2000.

Lighthouse
Point bridges
soon to be
ship-shape
By Paul Proia
PELICAN WRITER
Lighthouse Point Mayor
Fred Schorr told city commis-
sioners and residents at the
Dec. 14 city commission
meeting that progress was
being made on a project that
eventually will replace the
aging bridge on Lighthouse
Drive between 44th and 45th
Streets.
Schorr said the final bridge
span will be at least 28 feet
wide, with the actual span
being finalized when the city
engineer presents the plan in
December. The project will
likely go to bid by February
with construction beginning
in mid-spring and completion
around the 2005 holiday
season. The bridge is ex-
pected to be taller than the
current bridge, and will be
similar in design to the
recently completed bridge
along 49th Street.
Schorr has contacted both
area state representatives
asking for assistance in
obtaining state funding for the
bridge, which the most recent
estimates suggest could cost
the city as much as $675,000.

Minivan Quality Down


By Phil Edminston
PELICAN WRITER
Minivan quality this year
doesn't look good. Nissan and
Toyota's 2004 redesigned
Quest and Sienna have serious
first-year power train, fuel
system, and body deficiencies
not seen on previous year


models.
Although engineers for
both firms are working
furiously to patch up the
problems so they don't re-
occur with the 2005 models,
these kinds of defects
usually take several years to
cure.
Smart buyers should


wait for the 2006 versions.
Honda's 2004 revamp of
its Odyssey hasn't generated
many owner complaints and
represents the better buy of
