Pompano Beach Middle School
students reached deep into their
pockets to help children affected by
the Southeast Asia tsunami. Collect-
ing loads of loose change, students
raised $1,665.78.
The change was taken to Pointe
Bank for counting, but the bank
called in the services of customer
Mark Stone of Tri-Tel, Inc., who
used his coin machine to count and
sort the coins.
When American Land Ventures,
a South Florida multi-family
development corporation, heard of
the students' efforts, President
Granvil Tracy offered to match the
amount bringing the total dona-
tion to $3331.56.
Tracy will present his check to
Principal Sonja Braziel on Feb. 22
at the Pointe Bank branch located
at 21845 Powerline Road, Boca
Raton.
All of the funds will be sent to
UNICEF, an international
children's foundation.

Eastern CRA

"bad investment"

By Paul Proia

Claiming that development projects
in the Eastern Community Redevelop-
ment Agency (CRA) District would have
happened without having a CRA, Pom-
pano Beach Commissioner George
Brummer suggested that the city either
start moving forward with its CRA plans
or consider disbanding the CRA.
"We've had the CRA in force for
more than three years now and virtually
nothing has been done," said Brummer.
"I'd consider it a bad investment of my
tax dollars." Brummer's remarks came

February FCATs add "anxiety"


to classroom vocabulary


By Paul Proia
PELICAN NEWS
According to one educator who
wished to remain anonymous, FCAT
stands for "February Causes Anxiety
for Teachers." It also causes anxiety
for students and parents who know


that passing state standardization tests
is required to advance to the next
grade and even to graduate.
To combat student anxieties and
give each student the best chance to
succeed, area schools have used a
number of creative methods to aug-


ment class work and provide addi-
tional incentives for students to pass
FCAT tests.According to William
Bell, principal at Pompano Beach
High School, preparing for the FCAT
is a year-long process. "We started in

PELICAN NEWS

The Pompano Beach
Economic Development
Council welcomed Greg
Bankhurst, senior project
manager for WCI Communi-
ties, Iric., to this month's
regular meeting and learned
first hand about the new
project slated for the property
once known as Atlantic Point.
Bankhurst said the new
project would be called
"Oceanside at Pompano
Beach", a reference to the
original shopping center. The
name came from an area
resident who expressed an
interest in their project.

pleted the transaction to take
over the property on Jan. 21
and is obligated to have all of
the building permits by the
end of the year. However,
Bankhurst says that his
organization wants to begin
construction this summer.
"I think you can all get
excited, as we are, about this
project," says Bankhurst.
"We're dedicating a larger
amount than required for a
plaza and public access. We
want to make it a real destina-
tion, making it every bit what
they have on Las Olas."
And, to get that mindset
started, Bankhurst announced
that until construction gets
underway the land where the
already demolished
Oceanside Shopping Center
once stood will become the
"Central Park of Pompano
Beach." "It will be beautiful
fully sodden with Royal
Palms lining the south and
eastern streets. We hope to
host music shows on Friday
nights and parties on Saturday
,nights," Bankhurst added.

neighborhood and spur
economic development
along Martin Luther King
Boulevard.
"What we are looking to

Bankhurst invited the
council to hold its April
meeting at the sales office
being assembled on the north
end of the center parcel.
Bankhurst will make a second
presentation in March where
he hopes to bring a more
formal description of the
project as well as visual
descriptions of WCI Commu-
nities and other projects.
Bankhurst says the final
design is still on the drawing
board. "We want everyone in
the community to give us
ideas and feedback. We want
it to be something that all of
Pompano Beach can feel
proud of."
Oceanside at Pompano
Beach is scheduled to be a
mixed use facility with both
condominiums and hotel units
rising above a retail center.
"We're talking with a variety
of retail businesses both in the
United States and internation-
ally," Bankhurst says. "We
don't know what the final mix
will be, but it'll be an exciting
mix of shops, restaurants,
galleries, and more. This will
be a special place."

The plan calls for ten
single-family homes along
both sides of the Avenue just
north of MLK.
The project will coincide
with the MLK project that
will feature a mixed-use
project of retail and residen-
tial units abutting the resi-
dential homes.
Austin added, "We know
we are going to have to
relocate 21 homeowners [on

The CRA board also
approved granting eminent
domain privileges to the city
in order to buy other proper-
ties in the MLK corridor.
When the final purchases
are complete, the city will
own six acres and the CRA
district will own 22 acres of
land along MLK between
Dixie Highway and NW 6th
Avenue.
Later this year, the city is
expected to begin looking
for bids to begin work on the

Wrecking ball comes with lower price tag

LHP's North Broward Preparatory School is set for demolition to make way for new police station


Paul Proia
PELICAN NEWS


The North Broward
Preparatory School, which
will be replaced with the
-new Lighthouse Point Police
Department building, is
being readied to face the
wrecking ball and now has
the funds allocated to begin
the demolition process.
The Lighthouse Point
City Commission voted
unanimously to hire Lamar
Family Enterprises, Inc. to
demolish the building.
The company's bid of
$34,000 was $21,000 less


than the price quoted by
Miami Wrecking Company,
a subcontractor who was
part of the original
Roepnack Corporation bid.
City Commissioner Jane
McLaughlin questioned the
city's decision to outsource
this part of the project when
it had originally been part of
Roepnack's bid, and feared
that the bid may not include
the same level of services
provided by Miami Wreck-
ing in light of the bid docu-
mentation containing far
fewer details describing the
work to be bid. "I'm
always concerned when we


go outside the scope of a
comprehensive plan," said
McLaughlin.
City Administrator John
Lavisky responded, "If we
see a way to save the city
money, in coordination with
Roepnack, we want to do
this." Lavisky said the city
will review the work order
provided by Lamar Family
Enterprises and make sure
that the work matches the
bid and if there are issues
with the price or level of
service, the job and contract
would return to the commis-
sion for its review.
Lavisky also said that the


city didn't plan to take over
all subcontracting decisions
from Roepnack, saying that
this was a very specific


instance and that he didn't
see many other opportunities
for the city to request other
subcontractor bids.

Community Service award goes to Richard Zich


general manager of Pompano Lincoln Mercury


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF

Richard D. Zich, leading
his team of over 95 employ-
ees, has earned many cus-
tomer service awards within
his company. Recently, still
another was added to his long
list when he was recognized
for his time and generosity to
the city. He was given the
Community Service Award
by the Pompano Chamber of
Commerce and the Pompano
Economic Group at the annual
Founder's Day Luncheon on
January 25.
"Richard and Pompano
Lincoln Mercury have been
there for us more times than I
can count," says Doug
Everett, CEO of the Chamber.
"He's always a supporter and
often a sponsor for Chamber
events including Yuletide, the
boat parade, the seafood
festival and just about every
other Chamber charitable
effort. He's usually behind the
scenes. He never seeks
publicity nor the spotlight, but
this time we turned it on him
because he's so deserving."
Zich's response to the
spotlight was," I'm honored.
I'm involved because I want
to be. Still it's nice to be
recognized by your peers. We

all benefit. After all," he adds
smiling, "we're part of the
community as are many of
our customers. Mr. Holman's
(dealership owner) philoso-
phy, and ours, is 'give back to
the community'. It certainly
makes sense and it pays off."
And he's also given back
to his community as a family
man with children. "My wife
and I were constantly volun-
teering with the band, the
scouts, and every sport team
in which the kids were
involved. In fact, I can still
see our living room, piled to
capacity with 177 cases of
Girl Scout Cookies. Those
kids are grown now and we

Zich has been with Holman

serving as Controller until
1990 when he became General
Manager. His facility has 95

office, body shop, service
department, leasing, parts and
new and used sales divisions.
The 80 year old, family
owned car enterprise has its
home base in Pennsuken,
New Jersey. Headed up by


second generation President,
Mindy Holman, Zich says,
"They try to do everything
they can to help and to
stimulate us."
Proving his point is a pair
of boxing gloves, hanging on
his office door. Given in jest
by the company, they are a
reminder to 'knock out the
competition'. On another
occasion, during baseball
season, Zich received a
personalized bat which
encouraged him to smash
sales out of the park'.
For Lincoln Mercury, the
season is the busiest time of
the year.
"That's when the snow-
birds often purchase a car so
they can have it serviced just
before they eave again,"
Zich explains. "The other
busy time is showcasing new
models. We also do a lot of
three year leasing. Individuals
and businesses really like
leasing because everything is
done for them."
He highlights some of the
newest cars in the dealership.

SUV is a perfect entry level

will replace the Sable. It
offers as much interior and
trunk room as the Grand
Marquis and Town cars which
are still the staples in the fleet
and are most often chosen by
families and folks who drive
a lot." Pointing to a new
Navigator, he says, "This is
our biggest SUV. It holds
seven passengers with a lot of
fun stuff. It will tow 9,000
pounds which could be a big
boat, horse trailer or trailer
house."
Though he likes to try out
all of the new cars, he cur-
rently drives an Aviator which
he describes as "a mid size,
luxury SUV which is perfect
for travel to visit the children,
with his wife, their cat and all
of the cat's needs."
He drives to a lot to
company meetings where he
and the General Managers of
40 to 50 dealerships meet to
discuss advertising, products,
sales and sales incentives.
There are competitions among
the dealers and Zich is proud
to have won 11 customer
service awards in the past 14
years. Modestly, he says,
"This reflects on every
member of our team and
makes us all proud."
Congratulations and thank
you, Robert Zich, for your
contributions and support of
this community.

The Broward Sheriff's Of-
fice is giving Pompano Beach
residents the tools they need
to help keep their vehicles and
bicycles secure.
On Wednesday, February
23. 2005, BSO deputies from
District- 11 will offer free theft
deterrents to residents.
From 9 a.m. to noon, depu-
ties will be at the Leisureville
Community's south club-
house, 101 Leisure Boulevard
in Pompano Beach. Deputies
will offer free CAT (Combat
Auto Theft) vehicle registra-
tion and free bicycle.registra-
tion to area residents.
CAT is a remarkably ef-
fective way for citizens and


law enforcement to work to-
gether to keep vehicle theft in
check. When you register for
CAT, a highly visible sticker
is placed on the rear window
of your vehicle. The sticker
lets law enforcement know that
your car or truck should not be
on the road between 1 a.m.
and 5 a.m. It's a great way to
help cut down on nighttime
auto theft.
Nearly 9,500 bicycles were
stolen in Florida last year, ac-
cording to the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement and
registering your bike is the
one of the best things you can
do to help safeguard it, ac-
cording to bicyclesource.com.

Editor's note: In January, Broward County Commissioners voted 8 1 to approve
placing the Slot Machine Amendment on the March ballot. They also approved taxation
provisions after negotiating with the four affected pari-mutual facilities and jai alai
frontons in Broward County prior to voting to approve the ballot. Broward County Mayor
Kristin Jacobs provided the lone dissenting vote.
The opinion expressed below is that ofMayor Jacobs, and does not represent the views
of the Broward County Commission.


Fool me once, shame on


you, Fool me twice...

By Kristin Jacobs
BROWARD COUNTY MAYOR

Did you know that only one penny of every Florida Lottery dollar is returned to
Broward County schools? Once billed as a boon to education, the Lottery has
turned out to be one of the biggest hoaxes ever perpetrated on Florida voters.
Funny how history repeats itself.
On March 8, Broward County Voters will be asked to vote on whether or not we
want slot machines at racetracks and jai-alai frontons in our county. The promise is
that slot machine revenues will be taxed and shared statewide generating millions of
dollars to "enhance" education.
But will public schools ever see this new money or will it simply turn out to be
Lottery-2? In order to answer that question, we must know the details and sadly,
details are incredibly scarce.
The reason details are missing is because the Broward County Commission
voted to place the question on the ballot before the Florida House and Senate
convenes to write and pass regulations for this new industry. Why is that important?
It is important because the implementing legislation will decide if slot machine
revenues are taxed and at what rate. Legislators will decide the percentage to be
shared with each of Florida's 67 counties. They will decide the number of hours
and days slots will be allowed to operate and how many slot machines each facility
will have. And most importantly, the Legislature will decide where the money will
be spent.
The Sun-Sentinel recently wondered, "Would Broward voters support slot
machines here if education were to barely benefit from that money?" I wonder, too.
I wonder if voters would approve the measure if taxes from slot machines did not
go to public elementary, middle and high schools and instead were used to fund
vouchers for private schools or to fund three hours of private daycare for the new
statewide Pre-K program, as is being suggested by some Legislators. Some Legisla-
tors are even saying they might not tax the slots at all, but rather, charge a big
license fee, instead. As the Sun-Sentinel said, "Voters would be right to view with
skepticism any gaming referendum that doesn't specifically spell out how schools
will benefit... Until the Legislature weighs in, this all amounts to one, loud "Trust
us."
There is nothing in the Amendment 4 language that assures Broward schools of
anything. If we vote no on March 8, it will allow the Legislature to act first. Then we will
know how and where the potential monies will be spent. Gaming interests desperately
want to expand gambling here and that gives us considerable negotiating clout all of
which is potentially squandered if Broward County voters approve Slots on March 8.
Everything we know about the societal effects of slots is negative. For all of the promised
gains, we're being asked to trust the same folks who misled us before... We can't make
that same mistake again.
As mayor of Broward County, I am obligated to support the county commission's
actions, but as a county commissioner, private citizen, and community activist, I strongly
urge a "no" vote on slots.

Broward Police Benevolent

Association joins supporters of slot

machines at pari-mutuel facilities


By Stacey Brenan
SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN

The Broward Police Benevolent
Association [BPBA] today joined a
growing base of supporters endorsing
the March 8th measure that would
allow slot machines at seven racetrack
and Jai-Alai facilities in Miami-Dade
and Broward Counties.
"This issue is good for all of
Broward County," BPBA President,
Dick Brickman said. "The additional
tax dollars would enhance public
safety, help hire more police officers
and purchase better equipment."
The BPBAjoins other law enforce-
ment officials supporting the YES for
Better Schools and Jobs Campaign,
including the Florida Branch of the
International Union of Police Asso-
ciations [IUPA]. The IUPA repre-
sents law enforcement officers
throughout the State of Florida such as
the Florida Highway Patrol, the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement,
Department of Juvenile Justice, and
the Department of Environmental Pro-
tection.
"Education is the backbone to pre-
venting crime," said Joe Mosca, Vice
Chairman of Florida's IUPA and a 20
year Florida Highway Patrolman in
Miami-Dade County. "Amendment 4
could help educate our children and
provide thousands of high paying jobs.
Steps like that reduce the root causes
of crime which makes law enforce-
ment more effective."
Mosca of IUPA discredits the mis-
leading claims that crime will increase
by allowing slot machines at existing


pari-mutuel facilities. In his 20 years
as a Florida Highway Patrolman in
Miami-Dade, Mosca says he has not
seen an effect on the crime rates by the
spread of unlicensed and unregulated
gaming which is grown rapidly
throughout Florida.
"I've seen the largest expansion of
unlicensed and unregulated gambling
over the last decade, yet we currently
have the lowest crime rates in the last
30 years," said Mosca.
The Broward County Police Be-
nevolent Association is a non-profit
organization providing labor relations
assistance and collective bargaining
services for its members. The PBA's
mission is to promote professionalism
in law enforcement and to protect the
rights and privileges of individual law
enforcement officers and civilian em-
ployees, as well as to keep citizens
informed of the challenges facing law
enforcement today.
"We're gratified that the Broward
Police Benevolent Association recog-
nizes the benefits to South Florida
Communities," said Earl Bender, the
YES for Better Schools and Jobs Cam-
paign. "Law enforcement officials
know that regulated facilities are safer
and better for the citizens of Broward
County."
The YES for Better Schools and
Jobs' coalition also includes the
Broward Teachers Union,the Miami-
Dade Teachers Union, the Florida
Education Association, the Florida
School Boards Association, the Pom-
pano Beach Chamber of Commerce,

the city and for developers.
Residents feel that redevelop-
ment on the beach will cause
overcrowding and strain the
infrastructure. Developers
wantto buildlargerandhigher
structures to increase the net
profit of their development.
What is your opinion regard-
ing beach redevelopment?
Said Andy Feinberg, "I am
not for tall development, mean-
ing I would like to have height
restrictions. I feel that the beach
will be overdeveloped with all
of these high rises. With only
two bridges, there is only so
much room for traffic. Some
times of the year will be worse
than others, like this time of
year, but I personally feel that
e don't need to do all of this
development on the beach. We
need to review how much and
what we want to do rather than
approve several projects and
allow a lot of development.
People who live on the barrier
island have a valid complaint -
a fear for getting EMS services
and fire services across the
bridge. Right now the concern
is how much can developers
buy and build, and we need to
concern ourselves with whether
or not we can service the resi-
dents who already live there.
"I'm not necessarily against
development, but I don't think
we want to see something like
the Gait stretch. The people
who live here chose Pompano
Beach because of the access to
the beach and the lack of high
rises on the shoreline. It needs


to be done thematically so that
it's done right."
Said Susan Foster, "First,
we're going to have to abide by
the rules of the Comprehensive
Land Use Plan and the Local
Activity Center. Mayor Kristin
Jacobs is very adamant about
not overcrowding and adding
to the density of the beach. In
many ways this is a county
driven agenda. The county is
not going to allocate any more
flex and reserve units for use in
beachfront development, and
the county doesn't want fo ex-
ceed what the barrier island can
handle.
"What we want to do is part-
ner with the county .and abide
by what they have to say."
Said Edward Phillips, "Well,
it's a tough question and one that
brings no easy solutions. We
have to have a certain amount of
beach development. And, they
shouldn't be prevented from
making profits. Plus, we have to
make sure that the beach keeps
up with the times. You need to
bring in attractions so that the
businesses and people who are
there can flourish. The question
is what type of development?
Youhave aPandora's Box,more
or less. How do you deal with
people who want things to re-
main just as they are? The fact is
that progress is going to happen.
And, we do have to have a certain
amount of development to sus-
tain existing businesses and cre-
ate new businesses. I'mforman-
aged development a slow paced
development. Developers come
in with mammoth projects, but
we need things to come into the
area in phases.
"The biggest issue tied to
this development is transporta-

tion. If you cannot increase the
amount of traffic that comes to
and from the barrier island, it
inhibits the amount of develop-
ment you can have. We need to
know how many people will
come with the development and
see how that affects the traffic
flow. People don't want to drive
around the area, or try to leave the
island,and be stuckin traffic. So,
we need to support the traffic
growth at the same pace as the
development growth. It may be
inevitable that we'll need another
way to cross the intra-coastal.
People may not want a bridge in
their back yard, but something
different will have to be done -
including increasing the size of
the existing bridges.
Said Mr. Larkins, "I think
you have to build for the health
and safety of the community.
ButI'm notforaten-story height
limit. I think each building
should be judged based on its
merit.
"Regarding development, I


don't think we need any more
condominiums. I think we need
at least one really nice hotel. I
think that you could take the
property where the Holiday Inn
currently stands and replace it
with a really nice hotel -that
would bring some nice activity
to that area as well as large
meeting rooms to accommodate a
number of city, civic, or private
functions.
"I don't subscribe to limits
in building heights on hotels
either development should be
based on what the island can
support. How much traffic can
we support? Is this a drain on
your water supply? You got to
consider these things. If we
limit the height to ten stories,
you'll have rows of ten-story
buildings just like a bean field -
rows and rows of beans.
"The point I'm trying to
make here is that you can't just
talk about height restrictions.
I'd rather consider different
projects give me a hotel."

'Vintage' townhomes
formally approved;
construction expected
to begin this summer.

By Paul Proia
PELICAN NEWS

The Shoal Creek Development
"Vintage at Lighthouse Point" can
begin construction of new three-story
luxury townhouses now that the
Lighthouse Point City Commission
gave final approval to all necessary
ordinances and resolutions tied to the
project.
The new townhouses will be
located in the 4100 block of N.
Federal Highway where the
Southwinds Mobile Home Park now
stands.
City Commissioners voted unani-
mously to approve plat designations
and drainage plans, and voted 4 -1 to
approve the zoning change to allow 80
townhouses to be built on 4.22 acres
of property originally zoned for
commercial use.
Commissioner Thomas Hasis
provided the lone dissenting vote over
concerns about the project's density.
According to developer Andy
Burhnam, more than 50% of the
homes have been sold since the sales
office opened in December.
Burnham anticipates development
to begin by June with completion of
the townhouses expected in Summer,
2006.

Asked when he began his African Art collection, Robert P. Scharmann laughed and said,"I didn't start out doing this. My first office was filled with floral
prints which didn't appeal to me. I happened to mention this to an uncle who is a former missionary and a true collector of African Art, and he offered
me some of his collection to replace the flowers. I took him up on it. From then on, my family and friends turned me into a collector." [Photo by Phyllis

By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
Robert P. Scharmann (call me
Bob) was thrilled but quite surprised
to be named Businessman of the Year
by Pompano Chamber of Commerce
and the Economic Council. "I enjoy
doing what I do and I don't see my job
as a business, but rather more of a
mission, almost a ministry," he
explains.
In the six plus years he's been
heading up John Knox Village, the
already successful CCRC [Continuing
Care Retirement Community] has
grown and still maintained its position
as one of the highest rated communi-
ties in the state and in the country.
Under Scharmann's leadership,
other honors have come to the Village.
In 20Q4, it was voted Health Services
Business of the Year by the South
Florida Business Journal. Scharmann
was awarded the Chairman's Award
by the Florida Association of Homes
for the Aging where he serves on the
Board of Trustees. Last year, Gover-
nor Jeb Bush appointed him to the
State of Florida Continuing Care
Advisory Council where he is cur-
rently the Chairman.
Stepping into his office, it is clear
Scharmann is a working executive.


Both his desk and his conference table
are covered with paper and folders
indicating the many projects demand-
ing his attention. African art adorns
his walls and a number of beautifully
carved African animals gather on top
of a wall unit. Asked how he acquired
his impressive collection, he laughs.
"I didn't start out to do this. My first
office was decorated with framed
floral prints which didn't appeal to
me. I happened to mention this to an
uncle who was a former missionary
and a true collector of fine African art.
He offered me some of his collection
to replace the flowers, and I took him
up on it. From then on, my wife,
children and friends turned me into a
collector."
A pleasant man with an easy
demeanor, Scharmann heads up a
community of 1,150 residents and 660
employees. "We are the second largest
private employer in Pompano Beach,"
he says. (The largest is the Wynn
Dixie food-distribution plant.). "We
are governed by a Board of 13 Direc-
tors, four of whom are residents. We
have nine department directors who
each provide leadership totheir area
of service. My job is to create a
wonderful place for people to live,
and therefore to work. If you don't


provide an attractive setting for
employees, you will not be able to
deliver the services your residents
want and expect. As a non profit
organization, we are not working to
pay off stock holders. On the other
hand, we have to stay in the black in
order to be successful with our mis-
sion."
The Village mission statement says
it is dedicated to providing a protec-
tive, supportive community in which
residents may thrive as their physical,
social, emotional and spiritual well
being is addressed. In order to be
successful with its mission, the village
must operate a financially responsible
community that complies with legisla-
tive, professional and regulatory
guidelines.
Running this show is no small
challenge
"He's done it very well," says
Frank Furman, president of the Village
Board of Directors. "Bob has shown
tremendous leadership and remains
very responsive to the resident popula-
tion. They, in turn, have given him
high scores on professionally con-
ducted satisfaction surveys. He's also
highly regarded and often called upon

to lead his peers in the field.
He's made the Village an
outstanding example of a
well-run CCRC and never
fails to offer Village support
to Pompano Beach and the
many educational opportuni-
ties it provides to its resi-
dents."
Scharmann says the largest
number of Village employees
work in health care. "We have
four groups," he says naming
them. "Assisted Living,
Nursing home, Home Health
Care and Village nursing. Our
Home Health Care Agency is
the largest one in the tri-
county area. It services all of


Broward and our Village."
He has a smile and
friendly nod for every em-
ployee and resident he passes
and it's impressive to hear
how many he greets.by name.
Scharmann probably works at
least a 60-hour week, never
leaving the office without a
bulging briefcase. "There are
things I must do every night
because other priorities came
first during the day. No two
days are ever alike and that's
what keeps my job fascinat-
ing."
Scharmann found career
opportunities waiting
for him
Like every little boy, he
wanted to be a fireman, which
his father was, and he adds
with pride, "Our son is a


fireman right now in the Air
Force. Our daughter, an
accountant, has put her career
on hold while she takes care
of our three grandchildren.
My career goal was to be in
education and I'm certainly
using many of the skills I
learned. I've been lucky in
my career. I can count four
times in my life where a new
career evolved out of some-
one coming to me with a
job."
He smiles as he recalls one
of those times. "22 years ago,
a man who was building a
retirement community
recommended me to the
owner as the person to run it.
At the time, I was a general
manager of a restaurant. That
job became mine and led to


many years of experience as
an executive director of
retirement communities. Then
John Knox knocked at my
door and the rest is history."
"He's the right man at the
right time," says Bob
Milanovich, long time market-
ing director for the Village. In
the past 26 years, I have
worked with five executive
directors here in the Village.
Each seemed to be the right
person for that time and each
added to the village to make it
what it is today. Bob
Scharmann continues that
legacy. He'll lead us into the
early, mid and long range
future."
Scharmann traces
Village success to good
teamwork
Looking into that future,
Scharmann says "The best
thing I can do for the Village
is to bring quality leadership


to the nine director positions.
These people are key. They
must have expertise and the
freedom to use it. That means
they must have my trust.
Team work is essential."
Discussing the master
strategic plan for the future of
this successful Village,
Scharmann cites three impor-
tant aspects. "The board of
directors must give us vision.
Senior management must
react with realistic feedback
to that vision. The third
component must come from
our residents who have a
wealth of wisdom and knowl-
edge that we can tap into. We
must provide a way for our
-residents to share and we
must listen."
Congratulations Robert P.
Scharmann. Clearly you have
earned and continue to earn
the title, Businessman of the
Year.

August," said Bell. "We've
been holding bi-weekly
assessments of our students
against the standards and
offering after-school
remediation to make sure that
students are making the
grade."Pompano Beach High
School offered tutoring
programs tied to school
content and state curriculum
objectives. For those students
needing even more help, a
flexible class schedule has
allowed the high school to
give lower level students full
English and Math programs in
block formats not ordinarily
possible under old class
schedules.
At Pompano Beach Middle
School, additional teaching
and tutoring is being used by
a large number of students.
"We offered a twelve-week


FCAT camp and had more
than 250 students attending
every Saturday for extra
help," said Lauren Brown,
curriculum facilitator at the
middle school. "We also
implemented a 30-minute
study period for the entire
school to work on reading and
math. It was a scripted
activity every day."'
Students at all Broward
County schools can use web-
based programs to take
practice tests whenever time
allowed from home. Many
parents are getting involved
throughout the city.
"We had parents asking
for materials every day," said
Cypress Elementary School
Principal Elise Portman.
"They have been very in-
volved in the student's
progress. It's very important
to them."
In addition to tutoring and
classes designed to teach
students how to take tests,


schools offered a number of
incentive programs to get the
students in a positive frame of
mind. "We had big pep
rallies", said Jounice Lewis,
assistant principal at Sanders
Park Elementary School.
"We tried to make sure the
kids were excited to take the
tests rather than afraid."
Bell said that Pompano
Beach High School offered
cash and prizes to those who
scored at a level three or
higher. "The Student Advi-
sory Council gave us $6,000
toward incentive prizes. Each
student who passes at level
three or better gets $20 and is
entered into a contest where
ten students will receive grand
prizes." One of the prizes is
an MP3 player. "You have to
figure out what motivates
each student," says Bell.


"Some want a pat on the back,
or to see their scores on the
fridge. Others want money or
prizes. Others may feel good
to know they did a good job.
We have to do whatever it
takes to get the kids moti-
vated."
When asked if the schools
focus too much on the FCAT
tests, Bell countered, "We do
what it takes to give the kids
skills. If the kids have the
skills, they will pass the test.
We get asked this by a lot of
parents, and the truth is that
the FCAT is based entirely on
the Sunshine State Standards,
which is the comprehensive
curriculum for each student at
each grade level. If you are
doing it right, if you are
teaching the Sunshine State
Standards, then your students
will do fine on the FCAT.


We don't teach to the test, the
test proves that we teach to
the standard curriculum."
However, both Bell and
Brown admitted that they
offer additional help in taking
tests. Brown said, "We focus
on the standards and teach
what we are supposed to
teach. But near the end, when
it's time for the students to
take the test, we make sure
that we go over how to take it.
You want the student to feel
confident that he or she
knows what to do so that what
the child knows is best
captured by the-test."
Students took the writing
portion of the FCAT on Feb.
8, but specific curriculum
tests for English, Math, and
Science will begin on Febru-
ary 28 and last through early
March.

LHP elections

Continued from page I
What would you recommend
as a commissioner to help the
police successfully reduce the
number ofspeeders?"
Said Meredith Chaiken-
Weiss, "Our Police Chief,
Ross Licata, is doing an
excellent job addressing this
issue. He has more radar
officers in the field and issues
more tickets as appropriate.
"Numerous people com-
plain about speeding in their
area, frequently asking for
speed bumps, but we cannot do
that everywhere. When
someone complains, Chief
Licata performs a speed study.
Then, based on the results of
the study, the city tries to take
appropriate action. I would
recommend that he continues
Son this path.
"When you lower the speed
limit, people will still drive the
way they do. People are
programmed to drive 30 mph
in our residential areas. The
-issue is enforcing the limit, and
I feel we are doing this. Our
volunteer officer program is
providing additional visibility.
They can issue warnings and
notify potential offenders who
are driving too quickly. It just
hasn't been implemented long
enough to know whether it's
made a change yet.
"Let the voters decide


between 25 and 30."
Said Tom Hasis, "I think
we should have a zero-
tolerance policy toward
speeding. With more children
living in the city, it's even
more important than ever.
That means increasing our
enforcement and implement-
ing more traffic calming.
"Enforcement is always part
of it, but that's not the total
solution. Traffic calming is the
best solution and it's not just
speed bumps. It's having some
curves, zig zags, narrowing of
lanes along straight roadways
and moving lanes on your
roads. When it's a straight line,
people are less diligent in
watching the speedometer.
When you have a change of
scenery, curves and chicanes,
you tend to have more alert
drivers. And, traffic calming is
more cost-effective than adding
additional officers.-
"Speed bumps and addi-
tional stop signs have a
limited effectiveness and
seem to penalize residents.
"You can have 25 mph
areas, but it's hard to enforce.
Former Police Chief, Paul
Mannino, once suggested that
we needed a uniform speed
limit.
Said Sandy Johnson, "I'm
going to work to reduce the
speed limits to 25 in the city.
On a lot of streets, we don't
have sidewalks. You have
adults, kids, and their pets


walking on the street. Thirty
miles per hour is just too fast
for residential streets with no
sidewalks.
"As for roads like Light-
house Drive and Sample, we
have to do more traffic calm-
ing. We could hire one other
officer whose job is just traffic
enforcement having someone
doing this during the day, radar,
providing greater visibility, and
doing whatever is involved
with just traffic enforcement.
That one extra officer on the
force would help. Then,
increase the number of people
involved in the Citizens On
Patrol program, driving around
and giving the appearance of a
greater police presence.
"Finally, we need programs
that educate the public. We
could have a warning system
for the residents when they get
pulled over, but have some
other way to let the driver
know that the warning has been
registered. We can do this
politelyand carefully. We
could put information in the
various media that is delivered
to someone's home like
newspapers and newsletters to
let them know that the city is
making a greater effort to
monitor traffic and speeding.
If the public is aware of the
issue we may be able to make
,a difference."
Said Chip LaMarca, "As a
member of the traffic calming
committee, I feel that speeding


needs to be addressed immedi-
ately, but in a manner that will
solve the problem. I don't
think we should penalize the
residents who are following the
posted speed limits. The first
thing I will do is work with the
police department in assessing
the problem by taking new
traffic counts, speeding counts,
and determine the problem
areas and the extent of the
problem, as well as identify the
problem drivers. Are they
residents or outsiders? Then,
address the problem drivers
directly.
"As a city, we don't really
have the authority to install
traffic devices, such as stop
signs, unless the Department
of Transportation determines
it to be necessary.
"As to lowering the speed
limits, I don't think it's
necessary city-wide, but I
don't have a problem with
that in certain residential
areas. In areas where there
are blind spots or high num-
bers of children, it's probably
worth considering.
Said Nick Louis, "It seems
to me that we need to expand
enforcement and police
observation on the major
thoroughfares. I'm not
talking about ticketing people
for driving one or two miles
over the limit, but having
enough officers visible to
drivers.
"Second thing, we should


issue warnings to drivers who
are exceeding the speed limit
so there is a record of the
incident and ticket repeat
offenders.
"I would also lower the
speed limits. The speed limits
themselves are high I've
made recommendations to the
commission to lower the speed
limits to 25 mph. Right across
Federal Highway in Pompano
Beach, they have roads that are
25, why not here in LHP? The
main thoroughfares could stay
at 30, like Sample and Light-
house Drive, for example, but
the rest should be 25 mph.
"Also, residents treat the
streets as though they are part
of their front yard, assuming
that cars should only go 10 or
15 miles an hour because they
are playing or walking in the
street. And in many cases,
people don't get out of the way
when a car is coming. The
street is not a playground but a
right-of-way for the cars, and
this misperception as to the
ownership of the roads means
that people want drivers to
slow down even though the
drivers are driving within the
legal limits. This probably
leads to the perception that
there is a lot of speeding, when
there is not. Lowering the
speed limits would help
alleviate both the problems in
dealing with those who do
speed as well as this
misperception.

Don't miss it!

By Donna Torrey
SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN

Have you been outside
lately? Have you really
looked, smelled and, yes,
tasted the season? Spring has
sprung and its tantalizing
presence is everywhere. New
growth is upon almost every-
thing you look at. The
mulberry tree is bright green
with new leaves and new
fuzzy white berries are
promising a bumper crop.
Mangos are ablaze with
flowers, papayas are setting
fruit and best of all, the native
strangler figs are dropping
gobs of leaves all over the
place; swirling around in the
wind and some would say,
making a mess. I, however,
love this annual shedding.
It's a visceral reminder of
renewal, which is what spring
is all about. Every garden
needs a deciduous tree or two.
Their loss of leaves allows
the orchids and plants under-
neath (the under "story"), to


get more intense light, which
causes them to bloom, and
when the sun becomes more
intense, they again provide
blessed shade. Get in the
rhythm of the seasons.
The huge oncidium
planted on it has now put out
several long spikes. Almost
every orchid genus seems to
be putting out new growth or
is spiking. Go look! It's a
good time to repot or mount,
if necessary.
With the warmer tempera-
tures, butterflies are every-
where again, laying eggs on,
every host plant they can find.
Do you have enough of them?
You may need to add a few
more.
Now is a good time to
prune things a bit. A good
rule of thumb is not more than
half. It's also a good time to
apply a good organic fertilizer
to jump start the growing
season.
The woodpeckers are
nesting and the birds in
general are courting up a
storm. Look closely and
listen. The Spanish moss is
"disappearing", and the
chirping is most intense. You
may even see some jealous
skirmishes.
This is the most exciting
season of the year in South
Florida, if you ask me. The
weather is still bearable, and
every faun and flora is
begging to be noticed. Don't
you miss it!


CRA


Continued from page 1


during the Commissioner Re-
ports portion of this month's
CRA meeting held on Tuesday.
Brummer also referenced the
lack of action by the commis-
sion regarding the CRA. "There
were no items on the agenda in
November tied to the Eastern
CRA. We didn't meet in De-
cember. We didn't discuss any-
thing on the eastern CRA in
January, and we had nothing
again' this month. The only
time we talk about activity in
the eastern CRA is when we
discuss the Atlantic Point prop-
erty recently purchased by
WCI."
Brummer added that the
Western CRA, which has been
more successful over a much
longer period of time, held
greaterpotentialbecause the city
owned so much property and
could afford to acquire more
property to include in develop-
ment projects. In the Eastern
CRA, virtually all of the af-
fected property is owned pri-
vately. "There are a number of
private development projects
going on along the beach, but
specific to the CRA district, you
can probably count them on one
hand."
Commissioners Kay
McGinn, Lamar Fisher and Su-
san Foster spoke against the
idea, saying that it was too early
to evaluate something that was
still "in its infancy." Foster
suggested waiting until after

WCI Communities, Inc. com-
pleted plans for the Oceanside
at Pompano Beach project at
Riverside and Atlantic Boule-
vard. "I would like to see what
WCI has to offer because it
could be a contiguous plan that
would accommodate the Atlan-
tic Plaza streetscape as well. If
WCI wants to partner with the
city, I would be willing to do
whatever it takes for the city to
take part in a comprehensive
project."
Brummer countered that the
city should be the agent of
change, saying, "It's more like
the tail wagging the dog. We
should be making the plans and
having developers work within
our plans, rather than reacting
to the plans of these develop-
ers."
Commissioner Kay
McGinn, in whose district the
Eastern CRA resides, suggested
that the commission consider
hiring a consultant to provide
guidance and ideas as to how
the city could upgrade the prop-
erty it owns, including the pier,
the fire station, the library, and
other areas. Brummer sug-
gested that only the parking lots
were within the CRA district,
and the rest didn't fall under the
CRA's jurisdiction.


After considerable discus-
sion, Brummer made a motion
to have consultants update the
existing plans for the Eastern
CRA and synchronizing the
plans with existing develop-
ment projects. His motion was
met with silence and died. Com-
missioner McGinn then made a
motion asking for a consultant
to provide ideas for working
with existing city properties and
it was also killed for lack of a
second.
The meeting ended with no
changes or initiatives under
consideration for the eastern
CRA, which returned Brummer
back to his original premise. "I
don't think we should get rid of
the CRA, but we should use it,"
Brummer said. "However, if
we can't use it or won't use it -
we should close it down."
After the CRA meeting,
Commissioner Foster added,
"We need the CRA. I don't
want to abolish it. There's 158
acres private property but we
can help develop it, give it in-
centives to do things. Our east-
ern CRA is in its infancy. It
took Delray Beach 12 years to
accomplish their CRA, and we
need to give ours time to meet
its goals."

More than 30 area restaurants
will be participating in the fourth
annual Taste of the Beach festival
held on the beach at Commercial
Boulevard on Feb. 23 from 6 p.m. to
10 p.m. in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea.
For just $30 a person, patrons can

one of the widest varieties of culi-
nary delights the area offers. Cui-
sines include Italian, German,
American, Seafood, Pastries, Grills,
* while drinks vary from wines to
specialty coffees and teas.
Funds collected at the event go to
the Chamber of Commerce and to
the Culinary Arts program at the Art

Florida's catfish are abundant in rivers and lakes


Special to The Pelican
Few anglers will ever have an oppor-
tunity to try to reel in a freight train, but
people who hook one of Florida's mon-
strous catfish have a pretty good idea of
what it would feel like. One of the
reasons Florida owns the bragging rights
to the "Fishing Capital of the World"
title is this state's lakes and rivers are
crammed with catfish and some top
the scales at 60 pounds or more.
For lots of Florida fish fry fanciers,
however, it's not so much the fight as it
is the vision of fresh catfish fillets in a
deep fryer that makes anglers giddy.
Roll the fillets in corn meal and drop
them gently into hot vegetable oil, and
keep an eye on them while you mix up
some hush puppies. Then you whip up
some cheese grits and coleslaw. Brew
up some iced tea, and come suppertime,
you will have arrived in Dixie, no matter
where you are. It will be the kind of feast
that,as we southerners like to say,"makes
you want to swat your momma's hunt-
ing dog." Actually, we don't really say
that; it just sounds like something we'd
say.
"You can catch catfish pretty much
all year long, the regulations are pretty
simple, the techniques are easy and you
can catch catfish from shore without
having to buy a lot of fancy equipment,"
said Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC) biologist
Kimberly Bonvechio. "All it takes is a
hook, line, sinker and some kind of bait
that smells awful or is otherwise attrac-
tive to catfish."
Blue catfish and flathead catfish,both
found primarily in rivers, are the largest
catfish species in this state's waters.
The state record blue catfish is a 61.5-
pound monster, and the state record flat-
head weighed in at 49.4 pounds. Chan-
nel catfish occur all over the state. The
state record is 44.5 pounds, while the
record for the channel catfish's smaller
cousin, the white catfish, is 18.9 pounds.
Other catfish species in Florida's
waters include the abundant,but smaller,
brown and yellow bullheads, which have
rounded tails, rather than forked tails
like the others.
"Channel cats, white cats and bull-
heads are good targets for kids just learn-


Fishing Florida's lakes and rivers will result in heavy catches of the succulent catfish. Anglers who
know how to bag these fish usually suggest a fine "stinky" bait to draw them to the hook.


ing to fish," Bonvechio said. "The equip-
ment is simple, you can catch them from
a pier or shore, and you don't have to get
up early on a weekend to go after them.
In fact, the best times to go after catfish
are just before dusk and at night."
She said catfish's "whiskers" or bar-
bels are loaded with sensory cells that
enable catfish to find food by smell.
That's why successful catfish anglers
use baits with strong odors like chicken
liver or gizzards, shrimp, cut mullet and
commercial stink baits.
"Catfish are kind of like dogs in that
respect," Bonvechio said. "The worse it
stinks, the better they like it, although
catfish also will take less fragrant baits,
such as earthworms and freshwater
clams."
FWC fisheries biologists recently
selected some of Florida's top catfishing
holes for 2005. They are (in no particu-
lar order):
Escambia River This one is not for
sissies. Big channel catfish come out of
this river between mid-April and June
and early October into November if the
water stays warm.
The Apalachicola River and Lake
Seminole It never fails. Channel cats


and flatheads rule these waters.
Choctawhatchee River This river is
a sweetie-pie that offers up some nice,
big channel catfish and bullheads along
with a few flatheads.
St. Johns River and Dunn's Creek -
Here's where you go to wear yourself
out catching channel cats, white catfish
and bullheads. Big channel catfish ac-
tion gets heavy in early May through
June. OOklawaha River-Big channel catf
sh, along with some whites and bull-
head, bite here May through June and
October to mid-November.
Ochlockonee River Flathead action
heats up in early April, and the channel
cats join in from mid-May into early
summer.
Suwannee and Santa Fe rivers Cat-
fish love the lime rock areas throughout
these rivers, particularly in the upper
and middle reaches.
Clermont Chain of Lakes Channel
catfish and white catfish like to hang out
around canals and channels when water
is flowing through them, but the rest of
the time, the best places to fish for cat-
fish are offshore, open-water sites, par-
ticularly near drop-offs or around bot-
tom structures.

Today's lesson: Hitting a solid forehand winner. Rick Macci works with tennis professional Shikha Uberoi in private lessons held at the Tennis Center
located near the Oaks Clubhouse in the Palm Aire Country Club. During his lessons, Macci demonstrates the mechanics of the swing and lobs any number
of tennis balls so that the student can make the swing as natural as possible. The 2 1-year-old Uberoi is ranked #143 by the World Tennis Association and
last year made it through the qualifiers to play in the U.S. Open. After a first round win, Uberoi gave Venus Williams a run in the second round, winning


four of the first five games, before losing in two s

By Paul Proia
PELICAN SPORTS

As a kid, Rick Macci was being
likely on his way to become a golfer
in his home outside of Dayton, Ohio.0
"I played all of the sports, you know,
but I really didn't start playing tennis
until I was in my teens," says Macci.0
Now, he regularly teaches teens how
to compete at the highest levels of
professional tennis.
Running the Rick Macci Tennis
Academy out of the tennis center near
the Oaks Clubhouse in the Palm Aire
Country Club, Macci spends his time
in tennis classes each morning and
afternoon, and giving private lessons
between his academy sessions.
Macci started his teaching career
running clubs at Wright State Univer-
sity.0 "I got into teaching and found
out that I could analyze and dissect
things not just tennis, but a.lot of
different sports.0 Having experience in
playing all of the sports, especially
basketball, contributed to stuff I still
teach today."0 While participating in a
number of satellite tournaments,
Macci was noticed for his teaching
skills and not his tennis game.0 "Tom
Frydell noticed me." He had contacts
with all the big players of the time,
guys like Don Budge and people like


ets.

that." He was able to help me land a
job in Vineland, NJ where I ran a club
just to gain some business experi-
ence."
Macci realized that he needed to
move to California or Florida to really
be in the thick of the tennis world, and
on a flyer chose to interview for a job
in Haines City, FL.0 In twelve years,
he built a program there from the
ground up to become one of the most
successful tennis businesses in the
state.' Looking to expand, he moved
to Tampa and finally to South Florida
in 1992, starting at Inverrary before
moving to his present quarters in Palm
Aire.
"What really put me on the map,
however, were the players.0 First, you"
get someone to start playing well in
tournaments which helps draw more
students.0 Then, another does even

find a superstar," says Macci." That
superstar was Jennifer Capriati.0
Helping to teach Capriati the skills
that made her a tennis professional
before she couldorive, Macci sud-
denly found himself being called by
many of the tennis stars.and greats
that are leading the tour today, includ-
ing Venus and Serena Williams, Andy*
Roddick, and more.
Among the up-and-coming players
receiving instruction from Macci


.today are Shikha and Neha Uberoi.
Shikha, 21, is ranked #143 in the
world but recently gave Venus Will-
iams a good challenge before losing in
a second round match at the 2004 US
Open.0 Neha, 19, is not quite in the top
300, but she feels like Macci can get
her to where she can compete at the
highest levels of the game.
"We chose Macci because of who
he has worked with in the past, but
also because of his ability to help
people improve," said Neha.0 "He has
a real eye for seeing what you need to
work on." In the last year, he has
totally changed everything for me -
but it worked great and I can see the
improvement."
,Mahesh Uberoi, their father,
agrees.0 "He's the best in the world -
and he's easy to understand and work
with."0 His twin daughters Nikita and
Nimita, 1, will eventually be Macci
students.
The notoriety Macci earned as a

Lizima; Ray

lead Ely Tigers

wrestling

toward

Districts with

confidence

By Concepcion Ledezma
SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN

Besides being one of the school's
primary colors, green may be an
accurate way to describe the youth and
inexperience of this season's version
of the Blanche Ely High School
wrestling team.
Acdcrding to second-year coach
Simon Dritz, "This year's Tigers are
very young. We return only three
starters from last year." Despite the
growing pains and competing in a
tough district which includes Coral
Springs and Douglas, ranked second
and third respectively in Broward
county BEHS is tasting enough
success to wet its appetite for next
season.
"The team works very hard," said
Dritz, who also teaches Health on the
BEHS faculty. "And, we have a hard-
working core returning next year."
This season, however, senior Louis
Lizima is leading the way for the
Tigers in the 189-pound division. His
11-3 record includes a fourth-place in
the Broward County Athletic Associa-
tion tournament held two weekends
ago at Coral Springs. Not only does he
provide an example to his younger
teammates as a captain and three-year
starter, but Lizima is also an honor-
roll student.
"We are looking for our first state
qualifier (from Blanche Ely) in the last
seven years," Dritz said. "Louis
Lizima and (fellow senior) Curtis Ray
have great chances to be that person."
Ray wrestles in the heavyweight
division and has a record of 9-3
through Feb. 10.
The Tigers also have up-and-
coming underclassmen Joseph
Rodriguez, Willie Slayden, and Greg
Gross.
Rodriguez, a sophomore, pro-
gressed rapidly after a 7-0 record at
the JV level last season. He is tied
with the most victories on the team
with 13 (against eight losses) in the
152-pound division.
Slayden, a junior, is the other team
co-captain who wrestles in the 145-
pound weight class. He is 13-6.
Greg Gross competes in the 171-
pound division with a record of 11-5.
While potential is the team's
strength, Dritz knows his team is
facing a tough challenge in the district
tournament which begins on the
weekend of Feb. 19-20.
"The team is looking to take fourth
in the district," Dritz said. "We are in
a very difficult district. We're hoping
to advance five of eight wrestlers to
regionals."

AMERICA'S FAVORITE PASTTIME Pitcher Casie Driscoll (left) fires a strike in first inning action. Driscoll, a junior, fanned three and walked three in earning a complete game win. After spending
a season as the top reliever, Driscoll is expected to carry the pitching load for the Lady Tornadoes this season. Christy Burton (right) slides under an errant throw to score the first Tornado run of the season.
Burton's ability to get on base makes her a valuable addition to the top of the Tornado lineup. In the second inning, Burton made a sensational backhand grab of a Texas League fly in shallow rightfield
to prevent a Lady Colonel from getting a hit.

Broward Shentt's OUtice deputies spent part of Wednesday warning drivers on Sample Road and 33rd Street in Pompano

and not stop on the tracks or underneath crossing gates, as these cars clearly demonstrated for our cameras at about 11:30
a.m. on Sample Road near Dixie Highway. Fortunately for these drivers, BSO deputies were on break.

We spotted MacLean family men,

were out for a fun night of male

Good to see Mike Bonner recently

they left some fish for us to catch
when we get there.

Thorn, was introduced to the world.
Thorn, an antisocial hermit, lives in
Key Largo and was meant to only be a
character in one book. But he was
such an instant success, that Jim's
publisher forbade him to drop Thorn
from his subsequent books. His most
recently published novel, Forest of the
Night, is a bit of a departure since it's
about Cherokee Indian legend, set in
North.Carolina. His tales of his book

which he described as "Moments of
Humiliation," kept everyone laughing

afternoon, there was non-stop enter-
tainment. The four Keepers, local
pediatricians Dr. Allen Furia, Dr.
Marvin Giddings, and Dr. Charles
Teebagy, along with children's dentist
Dr. Jerry Klein were presented with
their Keeper's plaques at the Friday
night kick off party.
The award is named for the fact
that these folks are the keepers of the
light, like the old time lighthouse
keepers. Their contribution to the
community has been beyond compari-
son as so many in the room regaled us
with tales of these fine doctors'
experiences with their children and
now with their grandchildren.-
327 people were seated at the
Lighthouse Point Yacht Club to honor
these men and many more were turned
away due to a sellout of the tickets a
proud moment for these gentlemen
and their families. Saturday morning
started out a bit cold, but participants
and spectators alike gathered at Dan
Witt Park ard along the paraderoute
dressed in their cool weather gear.
Commissioners of the city waved
and threw candy to the kids, which
instantly endeared them to the small
folk! Bands, floats decorated in the
Mardi Gras theme, the cutest little
baton twirlers one might see, clowns,
Indian Princesses, and many more
made for an old-fashioned hometown
parade.

Friday, February 18,2005 The Pompano Pelican 21


Society
Continued from page 19
Arriving at McDonough
Park, the kids were treated to
great activities. An antique
car show brought back many
happy memories of by gone
years to some of us "older"
folks.
Awards were given out for
the fishing tournament the
week before and was happy to
see that Nikki Valko, a young
lady, had the highest total of


fish caught in the contest.
Many of the young fishing
boys and girls walked away
with trophies so they were
joyful.
And then the pet show!
So many adorable pets,
obviously adored by their
owners, marched around for
all to see. We'll never forget
the joy on Casey Morgan's
face when her cat Skylar won
the kitty contest!
On to the evening activi-
ties at Dan Witt where young
gals from the Harling Irish


Dance Academy put on a
fabulous display of Irish step
dancing. Where do they get
their energy?
The Porch Dogs Cajun
Zydeco Band played some
foot stomping good old New
Orleans style music. Again
there were kids activities,
ranging from the balloon
bouncer to the pirate ship,
which put a happy glow on
little faces. A fireworks
Grand Finale was the perfect
ending of a memorable
weekend for old and young


alike.

Don't miss out on these
exciting upcoming
events.

Mardi Gras party benefiting

Eat to Your

Heart's Content
A lifetime of good eating is a
family matter.

Eating well for a healthy heart is
good for the entire family. And now
everything that's known-about
eating well for your heart and living
well can be found in one place.
The "Betty Crocker Healthy Heart
Cookbook" is not only packed with
great-tasting, easy recipes from
America's Most Trusted Kitchens,
the book combines the latest
medical information with practical,
everyday tips for your family from
people like you.
Authors Dr. Roger Blumenthal of
the Johns Hopkins Ciccarone Center
for the Prevention of Heart Disease
and Juli Hermanson, R.D. of the
Bell Institute of Health and
Nutrition show how families can eat
well, live well and feel better than
ever.
Eating for a healthy heart isn't
complicated. It doesn't mean giving
up your favorite foods, or feeling
deprived. In fact, eating a diet that's
good for a healthy heart is good for
everyone and delicious too!


From the Doctor's Kitchen
Dr. Roger Blumenthal, cardiologist
and co-author of the "Betty Crocker
Healthy Heart Cookbook," is also a
husband and father of a busy family.
Here are quick tips from his family:
-Get an oil change: Switch to mono-
and polyunsaturated oils for eating
and cooking (canola, soybean and
olive are heart-healthy choices).
-Go fish: Gradually increase fish
consumption to at least once
weekly. Try new recipes to find
ones the whole family loves.
-Color my menu: Add veggies to
rice, pasta and small portions of
pizza; leave fruit on the counter for
quick snacks; add dried fruit to
breakfast oatmeal; and serve fresh
fruit for dessert.
-Greens are golden: Eat a salad with
dinner; include cucumbers, bell
peppers, broccoli and green beans.
-Think your drink: Drink water,
herbal teas and unsweetened
flavored waters.
-Tap the moo machine: Drink skim
milk daily (both adults and kids).
-Go with the grains: Include whole
grain cereal, bread, oatmeal, barley

and brown rice in menus.
-Green light some red meat: As long
as your overall diet is low in
saturated fat, small lean cuts of
meat served with other heart-
friendly foods are okay.
-Give good fats a hand: Snack on a
handful of walnuts or almonds, of
avocado slices. They contain a type
of fat (monounsaturated fat) that is
good for your heart.
-Hold the bottom line: If you really
want it, you can eat it in modera-
tion. Small amounts of butter are
okay sometimes, but small amounts
of soft tub margarine are preferable.
Serve ice cream for special
occasions, but otherwise reach for
yogurt. We enjoy treats much more
when they're occasional.

Do You Know

Jean-Pierre
Bollinne?
The French Place"...Pompano's
French restaurant is nestled in
an unpretentious shopping center on McNab Road. The rustic
decor reminds the diner of a typical rural inn in France. One is
surrounded by scenes of France and sounds of Piaf, Bref and Aznavour.
The young energetic owner-chef, Jean Pierre Bollinne, is a native of Belgium.
After five years of study at-the restaurant school in Liege (his diploma is
reproduced on the menu cover), he worked and trained throughout Europe and
even Africa. Chef Bollinne came to this continent in 1967 and after working in
Montreal, Mexico and NewYork City. He arrived in Pompano. Working for himself
finally, Jean Pierre found in "The French Place" the culmination of all his ideas.
His menu ranges from the classic to the innovative: steaming onion soup, draped
with melted cheese; ice cold vichyssoise; home made pate', duck flambded with
oranges, pears or pineapple sauce; steak bdamaise and superb steak du Patron.
Bread is baked twice daily on the premises and the house salad dressing is the
finest this side of Brussels.
For those not wishing to linger at 'The French Place" this savvy Belgium has
a take out and catering shop located next door. Here, almost all the dishes of
the restaurant are available to take home and enjoy. His fruit decorated cheese
cakes have already created quite a following at the shop.
Not content to sit still, Jean Pierre recently took hammer in hand and personally
built a tiny "bistro" behind the store. Here one can relax with a glass of wine or
a cup of cappuccino, enjoy a simple appetizer and play a game of chess or
backgammon.
This is one of those little places that are too good to be true. It will certainly
become better known, but, I believe that the hard work and sincerity of this young
chef will keep well deserved success from spoiling "The French Place". "The
French Place" is open 7 days for your dining enjoyment.

Fresh... The Pompano Beach Green Market


By Dan Hobby
POMPANO BEACH HISTORICAL
SOCIETY
It's going to be another big
day at the Green Market this
Saturday!
It's the third Saturday of
the month, so that means it is
Antiques Day.
Antiques and collectibles
will be on display, and we've
located a quality vendor we
think will please everyone.
The Antique Automobile
Collectors of America's Fort
Lauderdale club will be
bringing a wide range of
vintage vehicles, too.
Last week we had a new
vendor Lawn Bugs selling
decorative accessories for
your garden and lawn. Butter-
flies, frogs, lady bugs... all
kinds of critters. The kids like
them, too. They'll be back
this week.
The Green Market is the
best place to get your garden-
fresh fruits, vegetables and
juices (actually, I guess the
juices would be orchard-
fresh). Remember, it's still
strawberry season in Florida,
so don't miss out on those
sweet berries.
The Orchid Doctor gets to
the Green Market early. Then
again, he pretty much has to
since he brings such a wide
variety of beautiful blooming
orchids.
All orchids are not created


equal, and the Doc has the
royal lineage, so get over
there and pick up a couple.
Last week I strolled over
to chat with Capt. Norm at
his fresh seafood booth, and
my eyes popped out of my
head when I saw the
gorgeous shrimp he
brought. You almost needed
two hands to pick one up!
And I hear all kinds of
stories from people who
bought his Cobia fillets.
"Only the best"- that
should be the Green
Market's slogan. Where else
are you going to find people
who care so much about
their products?
Another example for the
skeptics: Grains of Olde.
Our friend John brings
loaves of freshly-baked
breads that you will never
find anywhere else. Seven-
grain, twelve grain, rose-
mary-garlic, cranberry-
walnut, and a whole bunch
more. They're a whole
different species than plain
old white bread.
And the best teas and
coffees are at the Green
Market, too. I've noticed a
lot of people are a little shy
when it comes to tea. They
may know about
grandma's sweet tea with
the half-inch of sugar on
the bottom of the glass,


Even through the temperature was chilly for South Florida; the crowds were out at the Pompano Beach Green Market last
Saturday. The Green Market organizers promise better weather for this coming Saturday.


and that's fine. But Teaphoria is
working on a whole different
level. Come by and Janel will
give you a sample of what she has
brewing it's like the difference
between a fast-food burger and
an evening at a quality steak
house.
Same with Pittelli's Gourmet
Coffee first rate stuff. And at
Pittelli's, the chef is in! Tasty egg
sandwiches for first thing in the
morning, followed by something
like sausage and pepper, or
chicken parmesean hoagies for
lunch.


John Knox Village's Home
Health Agency workers will
take your blood pressure and
give you all kinds of good
information on your health.
And then we have Oxyfresh
- a natural way to dental care.
And Broward County Farm
Bureau nuts, preserves, and
such, all from Florida. And
Juice Plus a healthy way to
get your vitamins and minerals.
And art and history and more
food and ... Oh yeah, I almost
forgot our band this week is
Pompano Beach's own coun-


try sensation, Rattlesnake! Ron
and Romeo and the boys will
be playing plenty of traditional
country sounds, with a few
surprises thrown in, too.
SThere's just no better place
to be on a Saturday morning
than at the Pompano Beach
Green Market!
We're open 8 a.m. to 1
p.m. in Pompano Beach's
historic downtown, near the
Atlantic Blvd. and Dixie
Highway intersection. For
directions, go to the Historical
Society's website at
www.pompanohistory.com.
