Lighthouse

Point office

building site of

break-in

Lighthouse Point Police detectives
are investigating a breaking and
entering incident that occurred Sunday
evening in an office complex located
at 5340 N. Federal Highway. Accord-
ing to police reports, suspects entered
through an exterior door and gained Local
by a
entry to the main building. yPhot
Avoiding offices with alarm labels,
suspects broke into the Bankers
Mortgage Financial office, the I- Sl
TradeDirect.com office, the National
Security Title office, and the law *
office of Michelle Frigola. In each Cl
case, suspects left with computer
equipment.
The suspects entered a fifth office, By
that of Caribbean Hospitality Services
which did not have a warning sign "
on the door. When the alarm went off, ager
the suspects fled. Police arrived mine
within a minute of the alarm signal, Brov
but were unable to apprehend the B
suspects as they fled the scene.

Samaritan rescues ING

dogs from fire ITH
A Good Samaritan was driving OF T
along NE 41st Street when he noticed SEC
a fire coming from the back of the LA'I
house. Getting out of the car, the MUl
person broke through a window to
enter the home, which was filled with
thick, black smoke, and released two P
dogs one of which had been caged. state
Now, Pompano Beach Fire Depart-
ment officials are investigating the fire
that caused nearly $40,000 in damage
to a home at 1711 NE 41st Street,
belonging to Bruce and Doreen
Delker. The fire started in the back
yard where pool supplies and charcoal
may have ignited to begin the blaze. B
BSO Deputy Joe Russo arrived
moments later and broke through the
front door when the two golden
retrievers raced past him. Russo, like h
the Good Samaritan who was never al
identified, had heard that there might 1
have been small children inside. h
Fortunately, the home was empty. P
After his efforts, Russo was taken c
to North Broward Hospital where he c
was treated for smoke inhalation and C
released. S
The building is uninhabitable and
the Red Cross is providing temporary P
shelter for the family.


Indian Princesses were selected by the Keeper's Day Committee members as the "Best Float"
nonprofit organization. The parade of more 40 floats took place Feb. 12 in Lighthouse Point.

The Broward County Planning
Council voted to recommend that the
County Commission deny a Land Use
Amendment that would have allowed
developers to build a number of taller
mixed-use buildings lining Atlantic
Boulevard from Federal Highway to
the Atlantic Ocean.
The city's Land Use Amendment
called for significant changes to the
way property is zoned in the Eastern
Community Redevelopment Agency

Lighthouse Gardens hosts Candidate Night


By Paul Proia
PELICAN NEWS
About 30 residents of the Light-
ouse Gardens condominiums
attended a Candidates Night on Feb.
7 where all candidates for Light-
ouse Point City Commission seats
anticipated in a debate held in the
clubhouse. In addition to the five
candidates, Mayor Fred Schorr and
commissioners Michael Long,
usan Gordon, and Jane McLaughlin
were in attendance but did not
participate in the debate proceedings.


When asked how the city had
become more responsible, accountable,
and user-friendly, Meredith Chaiken-
Weiss responded, "For starters, we have
a new Police Chief, Ross Licata, and
he's built a great relationship with the
city and with Mayor Schorr."
Tom Hasis discussed major initia-
tives he had brought during his last term
and what had come of them, adding he
had made sure that the city was respon-
sive to all of the residents.
Sandy Johnson spoke of her strong
skills in identifying problems and then
putting together plans to solve prob-


lems.
Louis suggested that city
budgeting isn't always tied to long
term objectives. "The budget
review should be performed against
the city's long range plan to decide
priorities. This kind of an approach
is not here."
Chip LaMarca said his first
priority would be to address the
aging infrastructure, making sure
that existing projects for
stormwater systems, bridges, and
roads were completed in a timely
manner.

stretches along Atlantic
Boulevard from NE 18th
Avenue to the ocean and for
several blocks on either side
of Atlantic Boulevard is
zoned primarily for commer-
cial and retail use. Some
single family homes can be
found within a few blocks of
Atlantic on both sides of the
street mostly west of AlA.
The new Local Activity
Center (LAC) would have
allowed the city to approve
1,459 new residential units,
approximately 864,000 square
feet of new commercial space,
and 467 new hotel units.
Units could have appeared
anywhere in the Eastern CRA,
provided that buildings didn't
exceed height requirements
within a given zoning area.
At least 17.5 acres would
have been allotted for open
spaces and parks.
Looking at just residential
units, the LAC called for
more than 1,200 high rise
condominium units, 138
garden apartments, 87
townhouses, and six single
family homes. According to
Commissioner Kay McGinn,
the allotments did not include
any projects already approved
by the city, including the new
WCI development,
"Oceanside at Pompano
Beach" or the new Ivan J.
Smith building, both proposed
at Atlantic Boulevard near
A1A.


However, McGinn said
that the allotment included a
couple of projects that were
built over 30 years ago, which
would have allowed for
formal zoning to be given to
the buildings. McGinn said
that the city would only have
been allowed to approve 880
new high rise units going
forward.
Broward County planning
officials define high rise units
as those buildings greater than
four stories in height.
McGinn said that the new
LAC actually calls for less
density. The current configu-
ration allows for more than
400 more residential units,
though the designations were
tied to acreage and not unit
counts as the new LAC
specifically listed them.
"The current Regional
Activity Center proposes
some 1900 units, with high
rise units on only 6.6 acres of
land. This new proposal
would give us the ability to
spread out where residential
units can be located," says

McGinn.
McGinn hopes that many
of the residential units are
used for buildings west of the
Intra-coastal rather than just
along barrier islands. "We
should be able to have some
three, six, or ten story build-
ings between Federal and the
Intra-coastal, and that would
help lower the overall density
within the CRA."
McGinn added, "I was
strongly against the Regional
Activity Center now in place.
If this plan can spread out
residential projects throughout
the CRA, give it balance, it
would be better for those
living on the barrier island."
Commercial density is also
reduced. The old plans called
for more than 1.12 million
square feet of commercial
property on nearly 113 acres
of land. The new LAC called
for a reduction of nearly 25%
in commercial square footage.
This contributed to more acres
being allotted for parks and
open spaces.

voted down, McGinn hopes
that commercial projects built
on the barrier island could
serve the residents who live
there. "I'd like to see a
grocery store there, for
example. Why give people
who live east of the Atlantic
Boulevard bridge extra
reasons to cross the bridge?"
Henry Sniezek, executive
director for the Broward
County Planning Council said
that staff recommends ap-
proval of the LAC subject to
the city addressing local
issues such as traffic and
infrastructure limitations on
the barrier island.
According to the document
prepared by Sniezek's staff,
"...Although our regional
level analysis does not reflect
an overall adverse impact to
public facilities and services,
other than public school
facilities, it is advised that,


prior to the Planning
Council's second public
hearing, the City ensure that
potential local level impacts
are identified and addressed."
One example of a local
impact is traffic. Sniezek said
that issues with traffic conges-
tion are the responsibility of
the City, and is one of the
issues that Pompano Beach
needs to address for the
county to approve the Land
Use Amendment.
A public hearing is tenta-
tively scheduled for March
15th before the Broward
County Commission, but that
hearing is dependent on the
recommendation of the
Planning Council and the
county commission's ap-
proval of how cities can
manage flex units within new
zones.

1 1 DERMATOLOGY IS MORE THAN SKN DEEP

by Melanie S. Hecker, M.D., M.B.A.

UNCONCERNED PARENTS?
iew parents would argue thal acne does not take its toll on a teenager's
self-esteem. In fact, according to a study recently conducted by the
American Counseling Association, 73% of parents of children between
the ages 13 and 19 said that having acne as teenagers made them feel
self-conscious. Moreover, 17% of parents surveyed indicated that they
take an active role in helping their teenagers fight acne, and 70% said
that they would like to do more to help their teenagers. Only 35% of the
parents surveyed, however, had taken their teenagers to a dermatologist
for acne treatment. The facl is that more than 40% of adolescents have
acne that is severe enough to require medical treatment by a doctor.
There are as many misconceptions about acne as there are
over-the-counter preparations that claim to remedy it. When trying
drugstore brands, however, they run the risk of only aggravating their
condition. For thl best management of acne. see me for professional care.

Contractors will be required to

provide safer and taller fences around

construction sites in LHP


By Paul Proia
PELICAN NEWS

Responding to the con-
cerns of several commission-
ers at the Feb. 8 commission
meeting, Lighthouse Point
City Commissioners appear
close to approving new codes
requiring permits to build
taller, more permanent fences
around construction sites.
The new construction
fences would be six foot chain
link fences with dark green or
black screens that would not
only prevent debris from
leaving the property, but
block the view of port-o-lets
and dumpsters on jobsites.
"I know a lot of people
have the same complaint as I
do," said Commissioner

Susan Gordon. "I have debris
in my pool from a neighbor-
ing development."
Commissioner Tom Hasis
was concerned with neighbor-
ing views along waterways.
"I like the idea, but I'm not
sure I want to penalize people
who may have to look at a
fence for a year."
All of the Commissioners
appeared to agree with
Commissioner Michael Long
who suggested that it would
provide a cleaner look where
people wouldn't have to look
at piles of materials,
dumpsters, and portable
toilets.
Commissioner Jane
McLaughlin asked about the
need to have fencing of this


type on all four sides of the
property. Michael Vonder
Meulen, representing the
city's building department,
replied, "Contractors have
problems with materials being
stolen or items being deliv-
ered too early for use. It
would provide additional
protection for the contrac-
tors."
After making a number of
recommendations, including
Commissioner Meredith
Chaiken-Weiss's suggestion
to clarify when a fence could
be removed, the commission-
ers unanimously voted to
prepare the ordinance for first
reading at the March 8
meeting.

East Sunrise Quilters Guild preserves and promotes


history, art and giving with many talented hands


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
Green Market shoppers
were introduced to the East
Sunrise Quilters Guild on a
recent Saturday when mem-
bers demonstrated various
quilting techniques. They also
sold raffle tickets for the
magnificent quilt on display.
All raffle money raised for
this hand made treasure,
worth $300 to $500, will go to
the Autism Society of
America, Broward Chapter.
Founded in 1983, the 78
enthusiastic quilters who
comprise the East Sunrise
Quilters Guild prove that an
ancient art form begun by
frugal ancestors is still alive,
well and warming the hearts
and bodies of folks all over
the country. This group meets
the third Saturday of each
month at 9:30 a.m. in the
Cypress Presbyterian Church
in Pompano Beach. Their goal
is to preserve and promote the
history and the art of quilting
among members and the
public.
Membership is open to
anyone interested in quilting
skills. Members, with a gold
mine of quilting know how,

the like."
Grabowski continued on to
say, "Our Show and Tell
segment gives the opportunity
to members to show their
completed projects. Each
meeting is a thrill because we
see at least six works of art.
Quilting bees and show-and-
tell sessions combine learning
and lively conversations,
creating a high level of


camaraderie and friendship in
the group."
The Guild makes a
difference in the community
through its Create and Share
outreach activity.

39 Guild members hand
quilted and donated The
Kester Quilt to the Historical
Society for one of Pompano's
historic Kester houses. The
quilt in floral, geometric and
conversation prints reflects
the 1930s when the Kester
house was built.

The Sample McDougald
Quilt, recently donated, is
based on a quilt top made
many years ago and rescued
from the dumpster by Guild
member, Laura Wilson. The
quilt top is a valuable docu-

Gambling has long been a
pastime of South Florida
residents and tourists through
the Seminole reservation
casinos, "Cruises to Nowhere,"
and adult arcades.
But neither cruise ships nor
reservation gambling establish-

Feinberg foresees a surge of
economic growth and upscale
development for Pompano
Beach and Florida Schools if
the voters say "Yes" to the
ballot question.


"Between 1,200 to 1,800
jobs will be created here,
property values will increase
and new construction will take
place," says Feinberg. "Putting
the education money aside,
there are huge benefits for the
two counties."
Feinberg adds that the city
and Pompano Park are devel-
oping an agreement to compen-
sate for changes to the infra-
structure and other impact fees
if the referendum passes.
"We feel it's a very good
agreement and expect it would

Pompano Park Racing is
owned by Isle of Capri, a
company that builds resorts and
hotels and casinos nationwide.
But not everyone has
Feinberg's enthusiasm, not
because of the benefits offered,
but because the final decision
lies with the state legislature.
If the referendum is passed,
state legislators will define how
the money is used and who gets
what.
"I don't like the whole
idea," says Pompano Beach
Mayor John Rayson. "I don't
like education tied to the 'one-
armed bandit.' This is a poor
strategy to fund education, and
slots send the wrong message."
Some groups fear that
legislators could allow some of
the funds to be used for
vouchers or private schools.
But Feinberg points out that
the unregulated gambling is
everywhere. "Why not regulate
gambling with a tax format so
that residents and businesses


can benefit? We will lobby
along with school board
members and the teachers'
unions to make sure the money
is distributed and spent wisely.
We also have a separate
agreement with the Association
of School Boards to deposit 30
percent of the gross revenues
into a fund for the schools to
distribute to as they please.
Pompano Beach Commis-
sioner George Brummer is
taking a 'wait and see' ap-
proach. "There's so much
missing information. We just
don't know how they will end
up divvying up the money."
But according to the
amendment, the referendum
states "taxes must supplement
[not replace state funding for]
public education."
Proponents add that in the
first year, an "estimated $438
million" will be available in
new funding for public educa-
tion. Some analysts say that
number could grow to $2.3
billion in five years.
Voters will make the final
determination on March 8 at
the polls.

By Donna Torrey
GARDEN WRITER
I never thought that I'd be
putting buckets underneath my
awnings to catch the scant
rainfall we've been getting. Of
course, rain barrels aren't a
new idea; it's an old-fashioned
one with a lot of merit. It's
amazing how much run-off
there is in even a few minutes
of rain.
So, now I can start dividing
and repotting my tropical water
lilies. (Remember, hardy water
lilies are very different and less
suitable for our climate as we
are very fortunate to be able to
practice ponding 12 months of
the year, and hardy lilies are
dormant for 6 of those months.)
Now that the days and
nights have warmed consis-
tently, you should be noticing
that the lilies are revving up.
Blooming is increased, and leaf
size, which may have shrunk
up considerably due to cold
water temps, are resuming their
former diameter.
If they are very pot bound,
it is time to repot. You will
also notice side plantlets, or, in
the case of viviparous lilies,
small plantlets at the leaf
notches; time to separate them
gently and put them in their
own pots.
It is important when potting
up lilies not to bury the crown
(the point where all the leaves
come together at the base), as
this will cause it to rot. Also,
always use topsoil, or aquatic
plant soil, which is turface,
never potting soil. Potting soil
has amendments to enhance
drainage, such as perlite and
pine bark. These would float
out of the pot and make a mess.

Topsoil is terrible as potting
soil, but perfect for water
plants; mix it half and half with
the surface for a good mix.
You can use old clay pots with
a thick layer of newspaper on
the bottom to cover the holes,
or purchase these new fabric
pots which allow the roots to
absorb more nutrients from the
water.
Pack the soil firmly around
the plant and add inch of
small river rock on top to hold
it all in. If you don't have a lot
of fish (free fertilizer!), put in a
few pondtabbs.
By mid-summer, these
babies will be blooming, so get
your rain barrels ready!

Unnamed reader says Pelican

"Madam" out of line with "free

speech" criticism

Recently, we received the following letter. Normally The Pompano
Pelican doesn't publish anonymous letters, but this one caught our atten-
tion. This letter is in response to a recent editorial regarding the "Audience
to be Heard" portion of the Pompano Beach City Commission meetings.
[Pompano Pelican Feb. 11, 2005].

Here is the letter:

Madam:
Your recent editorial concerning the "Audience to be Heard"
portion of the commission meeting is hardly the voice of a free press.
It does, however, verify you as the official "MOUTHPIECE" of the
corrupt group who are directing the fate of our city and their own
self-interests.
Who gave you the marching orders on the stop-order of free
speech? Was it the Commission or your creator, the Chamber? This
act of suppression to silence the voters was enforced in the past with
a very loud reprisal. Little wonder that you are known by many as a
Shopper; why degrade the name "Newspaper".
Anonymous

Dear Anonymous:

I think, dear writer, that you missed the point of the editorial. We are
not advising that people not be allowed to speak. Rather, we are asking
that people not abuse the privilege by speaking beyond the time allotted.
Instead of allowing ten people to speak in the half hour allowed prior
to the main section of a commission meeting, a recent meeting had only
six speakers during a session that had been extended to 45 minutes.
Several others had to wait and many people don't want to wait two or
more hours in order to have three minutes of the commission's time.
Second, we feel that commissioners should respond to those who
speak when it's appropriate. For example, a commissioner can express a
level of understanding and offer to address this issue during his or her
commissioner's report at the end of the meeting.
Everyone should be allowed to speak. However, using the podium to
address personal vendettas for five and six minutes, thus preventing
some other patron his or her right to free speech as well as denying that
person a modicum of courtesy is something that should be deterred.
Finally this newspaper has had a long standing rule about not pub-
lishing letters without the person providing his name and address even
though we will only publish the writer's name and city when the resident
is not of Pompano Beach. We are breaking this rule to address your
concerns, now voiced, thus giving you that avenue toward free speech
you so desire this fine newspaper to provide.
Sincerely,
Madam et al


VIEWPOINTS

To the Editor:

This letter is in response to the racing industry spokespeople who state
that racing greyhounds are not abused in any way. I have worked with
rescued greyhounds for many years and have adopted four of my own.
These greyhounds have raced on tracks in different state and they come with
both emotional and physical baggage. They respond to love immediately
and begin to return affection after they realize that they will never again be
mistreated.
Once the companion of kings, the noble greyhound literally runs for his
life. Every race day leaves hundreds of doomed racers in its wake. The
"kill trucks" are waiting to transport these slow racers out of the side gate to
either be destroyed, to be sent to research institutions, or possibly overseas
where they are subjected to further horrors on foreign racetracks.
I wonder if the public watched the recent Bryant Gumbel TV Special (on
Real Sports) in which a truckload of greyhounds were taken one-by-one off
a pickup truck. They were then taken behind a wooden fence and "dis-
posed" of. The viewer then saw the dead greyhounds being tossed into
dumpsters.
Those of us involved in greyhound rescue have tried to nurture the
females who have been used in breeding litters over and over until they are
old, sick, and have given their last litter along with their last breath.
Surely one can understand why slot machines should not be allowed in
greyhound tracks to revive a dying industry. This cruel and inhumane
industry has finally been exposed and the public does not like what it has
seen.

Fresh veggies, fruit and a new

singing senation at the Green

Market this Saturday

By Dan Hobby
POMPANO BEACH HISTORICAL SOCIETY

Come out to the Green Market this Saturday and catch a rising star.
Our featured musical entertainment will be teenage singing sensation
Kimberly Baron. Kimberly has played
numerous venues in South Florida and S1u
elsewhere, including opening for Alan e
Jackson at the latest KISS Chili Cook-Off. 8 .
You'll want to hear her in person right now, *,
because in the future you'll probably be
paying big ticket prices to get into her =.
concerts.
Of course the Green Market is much
more than music. It's the freshest just-
picked fruits and vegetables from our friends at McNab Produce and
Triple C Groves. These are local companies run by local people -
several generations of them. They know what it's like to be out in the
fields picking crops at sunup.
Just the same with our other food vendors. Our baker isn't reselling -
he pulls the bread out of the oven right before he brings it to the Green
Market (which is why he isn't always ready to go right at 8:00 AM if
the bread isn't done, he has to wait for it).
Same with Capt. Norm, our seafood guy. They fish you are buying
from him were swimming around in the Atlantic the day before.
Now we'll be honest with you Teaphoria's Janel doesn't go to
India to pick the tea leaves for her blends, and Joe from Pittelli's Gour-
met Coffees isn't in Colombia picking coffee beans. But they are
awfully picky about the ingredients they bring to the Market, and you
won't find fresher and more delicious beverages anywhere else.
Fresh, Fresh, Fresh . that's the name of the Green Market!
And if you want to stay fresh and healthy, you'll visit the John Knox
Village booth. The friendly people there will take your blood pressure
for free and give you all kinds of good advice after all, they are the
JKV Home Health Agency (which you don't need to live in the Village
to take advantage of).

Quilt

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 4

Dionne delivered 35 quilts
donated by group members to
Our Lady of Guadeloupe
Church in Fellsmere, Florida.
Russo tears up when she talks
about delivering the quilts.
"There are no words to
describe the emotion I felt
and the impact this visit had
on me. We have so much and
so many resources, we must
share with those who have
nothing."
Create and Share
Maureen Drudi who chairs
the Create and Share activity
says, "In a year, we make and
donate between 300 and 400
quilts within the community.
In fact, Broward General
Medical Center NIC unit
honored us in December with
a Holiday High Tea to show
their appreciation for our
volunteer quilt making
efforts."
The members donate all of
their materials as well as their
time and talent. They make
hats, booties, fabric dolls and
children's quilts which are
placed over incubators to
block out light and noise.


Drudi's predecessor, Judy
Gutowski originated the
create and share program.
"I had read an article about
the need," she says. "After
talking to hospitals and
organizations, we realized the
needs are so great, we could
never fill them all. We do
what we can do."
A magnificent quilt for
the Cypress
Presbyterian Church
"We wanted to do some-
thing special to show our
appreciation for the years the
church has been hosting our
meetings." Rosemay Daley,
past President says. "The quilt
was created by a committee
and presented to the minister
and congregation at a tea.
They were absolutely
thrilled."
The undocumented
beginnings of quilting
Long ago, our frugal
female ancestors saved every
scrap of fabric to be reused
wherever possible. They were
the original recyclers. The
need to keep the family warm
was probably why the first
quilts were produced. When
the women left the isolation
of their farmhouses and
kitchens to meet and quilt


many needs were met. Sewing
with others allowed women to
share their knowledge, learn
from one another, improve
their products and socialize at
the same time. According to
the ladies in the East Sunrise
Quilters Guild, those same
needs are being met today.
Drudi, still a young
woman, has been quilting for
17 years. "I had always done


arts and crafts," she says. "but
once I started quilting, I gave
the rest up. It's exciting
because one can create a work
of art from nothing. And then
there's the stimulating con-
versation and friendship."
Rosemay Daley has been
quilting for 30 years. "I
watched someone quilt when I
was a young mother. I just
gravitated to it and never want

Fisherman's

Wharf lease ex-

tended two years;

city looks to
pier's future

By Paul Proia
PELICAN NEWS

Pompano Beach City Commission-
ers extended its lease with the
Fisherman's Wharf restaurant by two
years, but called to begin considering
other alternatives for the property
when the lease is completed.
The Fisherman's Wharf lease was
due to expire in early March, and the
city asked City Manager William
Hargett to look into extending the
lease for a year. However, owners of
the Wharf suggested that it would be
better to let the restaurant complete a
full season, so the lease was extended
through June 1,2006. Hargett noted,
however, the lease agreement had not
yet been signed.
Representatives for the restaurant
then asked for a twenty-year lease,
which touched off a debate as to how
long an extension was appropriate,
and how long the city would need to
determine what type of facility should
be located at the city's pier.
Commissioner Lamar Fisher
wanted to limit the extension to just
fifteen months. Fisher noted, "I've
received a number of inquiries into the
property, and a fifteen month exten-
sion seems more than generous."
Commissioner George Brummer
countered that the city couldn't go
through the process of getting letters
of interest, proposals, and other plans
and discussions in less than two years.
He later made a motion to amend the
lease to twenty four months:
Agreeing with Commissioner
Brummer, Vice Mayor E. Pat Larkins
suggested that two years might not be
long enough to get through the process
of deciding what could and should be
done with the pier. Larkins seconded
Brummer's amendment motion calling
for a two year lease extension.
At first, Commissioner Kay
McGinn was not yet ready to extend
the lease a full two years. McGinn
first complimented the restaurant
owners for being a good tenant for
more than twenty five years, and for
making a good faith effort to address
resident concerns with appearance and
noise. Then, McGinn made a motion
to grant the fifteen month lease
extension.
Charles Brady, representing the
owners, next suggested that the
restaurant needed at least three years if
not five years to make all the neces-
sary improvements to make the
restaurant more palatable to the city
and still produce a profit.
At this point, City Manager

Pauline Grant named Business Woman


of the Year by Pompano Beach


Chamber and Economic Group


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
Pauline Grant, CEO (Chief Execu-
tive Officer) of North Broward
Medical Center, is the only person
around to be surprised at the recent
honor bestowed upon her. Charming
and unpretentious, Grant is respon-
sible for the effective and strategic
leadership of a 409-bed, community
hospital and trauma center serving
North Broward and southern Palm
Beach County. The center provides
comprehensive, general medical and
surgical services for more than 14,000
inpatient admissions and 52,000
emergency visits each year.
She's served the district since
1993, becoming CEO two years ago.
Asked if hers isn't an unusual post for
a female, she laughs and says, "It may
be a bit unusual for the country, but
not for this district. Modern Health
Care Magazine interviewed me
recently as a female CEO. They are
apparently checking out this trend.
They told me that nationally,19% of
the CEOs in health care are women.
Well, we have three right here in the
North Broward Hospital District. I
give much of the credit for my and
other women's opportunities to Wil
Trower, President and CEO of our
Hospital District."
When Trower heard about Grant's
recent honor, he said, "I can't think of
a more worthy recipient of the Busi-
ness Woman of the Year award than
Pauline. I've had the pleasure of
working with her for the last eleven
years and have watched her make
tremendous contributions to the
community. She is a great asset to the
North Broward Hospital District and
the North Broward Medical Center."
Her job is a demanding and
challenging one.
"But I love every minute of it," she
says. "There is no such thing as a dull
day in my life. Our main focus is to
provide the highest quality care to
every patient who walks through the
door. This means paying attention to
all of the employees who render the
actual care including cleaning, bed-
side, nutrition, diagnostic together
with the physicians. My relationship
to everyone is important. The patient
is our focal point."
This team approach has very
specific objectives and ways to track
progress. There is constant feedback
to both employees and physicians
through print, meetings and one-on-
one sessions. "We recognize those


who go one step beyond and give that
extra amount through our Shining Star
Program," Grant says.
Her energy level is high and that's
important because Grant can be found
in the hospital from early morning 'til
late in the evening. She explains,
"Meetings with physicians are best
at night. I need to be in touch and the

best way to do that is to be here."
Born and educated in Jamaica, she
came to the United States in 1978 with
both a Bachelor and Master of Science
degrees from the University of the
West Indies. Once here, she earned an
MBA at Nova Southeastern Univer-
sity. A single parent of two daughters,
she glows when she talks about them
both. Aisha and her husband, Conroy,
live in New York where he is an
auditor for Morgan Stanley. Their
young son, Christian is clearly the
apple of Grant's eye. "My other
daughter, Allison, is a sophomore at
the University of North Carolina in
Chapel Hill. We connect often at one
place or another," she says.
She was a motivated child
"When I was a little girl, I was a
conscientious student. I believed that
if you worked hard, studied hard and
enjoyed it, the rewards would come.
And they have. I knew I wanted to be
in healthcare and I wanted to help
people."
When she hears about the many
problems in her field of providing
health care, she says, "I still feel we
provide a great service to the commu-
nity. We take care of all the patients
who come through our doors whether
they have insurance or not. Our North
Broward Hospital District is the health
safety net for the community and I'm
proud to be part of it. We get dollars
from the tax payers to offset the cost
of providing care to the uninsured. We
maintain ourselves by being able to
bill those who are insured. "
With a sigh, she continues. "Our

Hargett interceded and
suggested that with new
negotiations regarding the
length of the lease, the current
lease extension request
should be tabled. "The city
asked me to make an agree-
ment with the restaurant. We
were generous in offering
three more months, and the
owners do not seem willing to
sign an agreement they
agreed to when I spoke with
them-over the phone."
After further discussion,
the restaurant owners agreed
to a two-year lease extension
and paying $259,000 in rent
to the city per year. The city
commission voted 5 1 to
accept the lease, with Com-
missioner Fisher providing
the lone dissenting vote.

Pompano Beach voters will decide two


commission seats and slot machine issue

Candidates call code enforcement, economic development top issues in both Districts


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
Voters in Pompano Beach
will go to the polls on March
8 to elect commissioners in
Districts 2 and 4.
In Pompano Beach,
commissioners are elected for
two-year terms. The city
mayor is elected for three


years.
In District 2, Susan Foster,
incumbent faces Andy
Feinberg, challenger for the
seat,
Both candidates reside in
the Cresthaven community of
Pompano Beach. Recently,
District 2 was enlarged when
the community of the High-


lands was annexed to Pom-
pano Beach.
In District 4, the candi-
dates are E. Pat Larkins, vice-
mayor incumbent, who faces
Ed Phillips, a former commis-
sioner and challenger.
Insurance and health
benefits are provided through
the City.
All voters will go to the


polls to make a final decision
on whether "slot machines"
will be allowed in the pari-
mutuel sites in Miami-Dade
and Broward Counties.
In Pompano Beach, the
Pompano Park Race Track
would be the only facility to
add slot machines if the
referendum passes.
Six other pari-mutuel


facilities in Miami-Dade and
Broward Counties will be
eligible for adding slot
machines to their gaming
facilities.
A "Yes" vote is and
approval to allow slot ma-
chines to be used as a gaming
device in the seven facilities
of the two counties.


Feinberg cites speeding

as a problem,

landscaping needed to

enhance property values


"I'm retired. I have given my
heart and soul to this commu-
nity. I've worked hard for Crest-
haven. I'm a go-getter." -
Feinberg

By Anne Siren


PELICAN STAFF
The Pompano Pelican
asked candidates questions
regarding their candidacy.
Here are the responses for the
candidates in Pompano
Beach:
District 2
Andy Feinberg, 50, is
married to Barbara. Feinberg
has been a member and
officer of the Cresthaven
Civic Association for 25
years. He was one of the
original members of the
Cresthaven Neighborhood
Watch, a group of citizens
who patrolled the neighbor-
hood in the evenings to report
suspicious behavior to the
police.
Feinberg is a member of
the Kiwanis Club and the
Moose Lodge. He says both
organizations assist children.
Feinberg worked actively
for the annexation of Crest-
haven [2000], and he worked
with city officials to encour-
age voters to approve annex-
ation to Pompano Beach.
Question: Should High-
lands residents have their
own commissioner?
"We told them, we would
give them a commissioner. I
am for doing that. We need a
seventh seat on the commis-
sion. We need the seventh
person to break a tie.
Question: Where do you
stand on slot machines?


FEINBERG


"Personally, I'm not a
gambler, but it will generate
money. Hopefully that money
will go where it's supposed to
go. But it's only Broward and
Dade that will have gambling
while the money generated
from gambling will be spilt up
among all the counties [in the
state]. I hope we will get a
good percentage back."
Should the city save the
Old Pompano Bank?
That whole area should be
saved and restored. That's
where Pompano started.
Question: What are the
biggest issues in District 2?
Speeding "In Cresthaven,
we have speeding problems.
In the Highlands, it's a lack of
code enforcement, speeding
and truck traffic in residential
areas. In Cresthaven, I would
like to increase beautification
programs. This would help to
increase property values.
Why should the voters
elect you over your oppo-
nent?
"I'm retired. I have given
my heart and soul to this
community. I've worked hard
for Cresthaven. I'm a go-
getter. I want to make the
whole city a better place to
live. I don't think we have
had good representation in
this District. I will bring
concerns [of the people] to the
commission whether I believe
in them or not."


Foster focuses on new look for

shopping center, calls for equal code

enforcement throughout city


"Voters should consider my experience and proven
track record. I love what I do and I believe it's
critical to be close to the people" Foster


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
Susan Foster,-58, a
retired executive, is married
to John. They have one son,
Bryan. Foster lives in Crest-
haven. She was elected to
District 2 two years ago. She
is a member of the Crest-
haven Civic Association and
the Neighborhood Crime
Watch. She is also a member
of the Pompano Beach
Woman's Club. She was
active in persuading residents
in Cresthaven and the
Highlands to vote in favor of
annexation to Pompano
Beach.
Should Highlands
residents have their own
commissioner?
"As far as my district
goes, a seventh seat would
not give the residents the best
representation. These two
areas are contiguous. We
shouldn't chop it up. Crest-
haven and the Highlands
have many similar issues:
street lighting, infrastructure
issues and code enforcement.
I feel I can represent both of
them.
Where do you stand on
slot machines?
"If the slot referendum
passes, this will be a boon to
Pompano Beach. These
machines are not going into
every store. They will be
only at the pari-mutuels. My
vision for the Pompano Park
Racing Track is to have a
casino for the slots. We could


build a convention center
there, and this would bring
millions to the city, making
Pompano Beach a destination.
There's gambling here
already. People can come,
have dinner, gamble and use
the other city facilities like
golfing, fishing and boating.
Tourists bring dollars into
Pompano Beach. If this
passes, it will be a wonderful
thing. I have five schools in
my district. We need those
funds for our schools and for
construction of new schools.
Should the city save the
Old Pompano Bank?
"I made the motion for a
stay in the demolition. But I
can't ask the tax payers to
foot the bill of between
$850,000 to $1.6 million to
restore the building. However,
this will give those who want
to save the bank extra time to
apply to the Broward Preser-
vation Historic Trust for
grants to finance the restora-
tion."
What are the big issues
in District 2?
Code Enforcement "The
main concerns are traffic
calming. Cresthaven and Old
Pompano are the biggest cut
through neighborhoods. We
are drawing up a comprehen-
sive plan to deal with this.
"Code enforcement is
'selective.' Codes must be
enforced evenly throughout
the city. Education is the key
for code enforcement. We
need packets for that purpose.
There should be a warning


FOSTER


period, but after six months,
all bets are off. But sometimes
neighbors don't understand
that other homes may already
have liens on them. It's a long
process. It must be equal for
everyone."
"I want to work with
owners of the shopping center
on Federal Highway. That
strip center in there has been
an eyesore, but I recently
talked with the new owners
and visited the new building. I
was very concerned about
what it would be. But it's
supposed to be a five-star
restaurant. The venue will be
jazz, fifties and sixties bands."
Foster added that Bed,
Bath & Beyond was consider-
ing a move into the Shoppers
Haven [Sample Road and
U.S. I].
Why are you the best
choice for this seat?
"First of all, it's my
experience in the work force.
And I have had previous
government experience,
including my position on the
Hillsboro Inlet. We have a
good synergy on this commis-
sion, and to get your ideas,
you must be able to get along
with your [fellow] commis-
sioners. Voters should con-
sider my experience and
proven track record. I love
what I do and I believe it's
critical to be close to the
people.

Economic development, code enforcement top


priorities for candidates in District 4


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
District 4 candidates, E.
Pat Larkins, incumbent, and
Ed Phillips, challenger have
faced each other before for
this seat. When Larkins
resigned from the city com-
mission in 2000 to run for a
county commission seat,


Martin Luther King

COMPILED BY ANNE SIREN
Ed Phillips, 54, is married
to Mary and they have a 15-
year-old daughter, Elizabeth.
What are the issues in
your District?
"I am running because we
need to redefine economic
development in my District.
We have all the development
and literally none of the
economics. There are very
few people who are actually
working on any of these job
sites who stay in the District.
Last December, the Miami
Herald came out with a
statistic that reported the
crime rate in Pompano Beach
was up 57 percent."
How do you affect
crime? You affect crime


Phillips handily won the
District 4 seat for one term.
Larkins returned to city
politics after failing to win the
county seat, so for many
voters, this election is a replay
of former years.
'There are a lot of things

we believe it's good to have a

getting rich in our District, but
the people who are staying
there aren't getting any of the
economics. Education is part
of the solution, but it's also

says Marguerite Luster, an
active supporter of Larkins.
"Pat gets the job done, and he
does things that go beyond the
job of commissioner. Now we
need his leadership to com-
plete the work started in our
community."
The progress in District 4


includes the work of the
Western CRA, a redevelop-
ment program, funded with
$50 million to bring afford-
able housing, economic
development and beautifica-
tion to the community.
Much of the work has been
completed. Homes in an

COMPILED BY ANNE SIREN
Pat Larkins, 62, has served
as a Pompano Beach commis-
sioner for 21 years. Larkins
served as mayor seven times
and four terms as vice mayor.
He is married to Bettye.
What are the top issues
in District 4?
"The continuation and the
acceleration of carrying out
strategic plans for our com-
munity. We have completed
many projects, and now the
city is focusing on the Martin
Luther King corridor. We
need to study the options for
viable businesses on the
Boulevard. For instance, I
would not want a retail store
on MLK because we have two


LARKINS

Walmarts within 10 minutes
of the Boulevard. No one
could survive with that
competition.
"We are committed to
spend $50 million dollars over
the next four years on that
corridor from Dixie Highway
to 1-95. We have an ambitious
plan to develop the south end
of the corridor [Atlantic
Boulevard] with offices and
tie that in with the smaller
businesses on MLK. These
would be restaurants, barber-
shops, dentist's offices and

and residents were given
homes in the recently com-
pleted Canal Pointe commu-
nity. A new recreational
facility has been funded for
Martin Luther King Boule-
vard. The city is purchasing
land to-complete an overlay
mixed-use project on the
Boulevard. The Blanche Ely
Boulevard beautification is
near completion, and the
Northwest Library will be
demolished and construction
for a new facility is underway.
Phillips, owner of PF
Insurance and PF Financial
Services, 160 N. Powerline
Road, wants to see the
residents of Northwest
Pompano Beach, enjoy some
of the economic benefits of
the ongoing development.
Both candidates are
concerned about mounting
crime figures and code
enforcement.
Walter Hunter, a former
candidate, who has challenged
Larkins three times is working
for Phillips in this election.
Hunter says he would have
joined the race, but when the
city redrew the voting dis-
tricts, he was no longer
residing in District 4.
"Ed will listen to the
community. He lost last time
because he wanted to change
the Housing Authority board.
He was right. There were
problems on that 'watch.'
Fourteen people were eventu-
ally indicted in that scandal in
2002. Phillips is not a 'Yes'
boy for anyone."

one of these jobs that is right
in front of their faces, we
have to ask ourselves, 'What
are we doing?'"
"My resolution is to be 'in
the face' of these construction
companies. During the Civil
Rights period, we were
working ferociously to sit at
the table, but now that we are
at the table, and our commu-
nity is not eating. That's one
of the reasons I'm running.
What can you do about
this?
"It's really simple. Most
of the developers that I've
met ask how they can help.
The answer is 'Put some of
our kids to work.' That has
not been stated clearly
enough. But you have to ask.
That's clear, sound, simple
economics.
"Everything is tied to
economic development. On
MLK Boulevard for almost
30 years, we have not gained
any new business. This was a
thriving community and now
those businesses are literally
gone. I think it's a travesty to
have that situation. This is a
result of not having paid
attention to economics."
Code enforcement "In
our District, the Code En-
forcement Department has
actually acquired a signifi-
cant amount of property
through liens in the African
American Community. I think
it behooves the commissioner
to start asking why and how?
How can you put a lien on a
$5,000 property and that lien
goes up to $300,000? At what
point do you cut this off?
"What would I do is pay
attention? I would have
monthly meetings and keep
the community informed."
Why should the voters
elect you?
"I'm here. I pay attention.
They would be informed with
monthly meetings. What
really counts is an individual
who pays attention and stands
up for what is right. Martin
Luther King said, 'Our lives
begin to end when we are
silent about those things that
matter.' My community
matters.
"Few people in this
community line up for the
commission seat because of a
perception that 'It's just ain't
gonna happen.' With me
winning, there may be a
perception that other people
can lead."

Lighthouse Point voters will choose two


commissioners, Schorr declared winner

Beautification, storm drainage and new police station top candidates issues


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
Lighthouse Point voters
will choose commissioners
for two seats on March 8,
and they will vote "Yes" or
"No" to the slot machine
referendum.
Lighthouse Point Mayor
Fred Schorr will return as
mayor for a second three-
year term. He ran unop-
posed.
City commissioners are
continuing to work on the
infrastructure of the city.
Storm water drainage has
been a big issue as some
homes and streets have been
flooded during heavy rain-
falls. Part of that work has
been completed in the


northern and southern parts
of the city. Repairs are
ongoing based on the great-
est need.
Other issues center
around a beautification
project on Sample Road.
Plans to improve the
city's entrance at Sample
Road and Federal Highway
include landscaping, turn
lanes and traffic circles.
Presently a traffic study is
being conducted to deter-
mine the feasibility of this
work.
Speeding has become an
issue, and commissioners are
working with the police to
educate the public on the
hazards of speeding with
regard to the many vehicles,


bikers, walkers and children.
Although tax rates were
reduced this year for the
fourth time, soaring property
values have offset those
reductions in some cases.
Commissioners are hoping
that some of the empty
buildings along the Federal
Highway corridor can be
filled with retail businesses
to augment the city's tax
coffers. But many of the
buildings violate recent
codes and property owners
are complaining that bring-
ing the buildings up to code
is too expensive.
Commissioners are
working on a plan that will
assist owners in dealing with


these hindrances.
Ongoing capital projects
include the expansion of the
library, construction of a
new police station and the
renovation of the present fire
station.
Two seats are open in the
March 8 election. Incumbent
Meredith Chaiken-Weiss
[Seat 4] is seeking her third
term. She is challenged by
Chip LaMarca and Nick
Louis. This is the first run
for LaMarca and the second
Louis.
Incumbent Tom Hasis, a
17-year incumbent is chal-
lenged by Sandy Johnson, a
retired school teacher and
local activist.

Tom Hasis, a 17-year com-

Hasis regards himself as a
"fiscal conservative" with a
common sense approach to re-
development. He is the past

feeling that the public had
voted for a new building that
would have low maintenance
for 35 year. Now we get an
old building, rehabbed and
much bigger. I like that
building, but I have to worry
about the lady living in
Lighthouse Gardens living on
a fixed income. We don't
need a bigger police depart-
ment. There is no place else to
grow. But we will have a
bigger building with people,
pensions and secretaries. Then
the Sheriff will come out of
the woodwork because the
people will be screaming
about this huge police depart-
ment and the Sheriff can save
us so much money. Maybe
I'm negative, but someone
needed to say that."
What are the top issues
in Lighthouse Point?
Quality of life in LHP:
The residents demand a high
level of services, and it is my
obligation to ensure that and
that it remains affordable.
We've lowered the tax rates
for the past four years. Other
taxes from other districts have
gone up, but this commission
didn't do that. We have used
volunteers to keep costs down.
We have 60 people who
volunteer at the library. We've
been very aggressive in
acquiring grants.
Aging infrastructure: We
have studies of how much the
need is to truly repair and
improve the city's infrastruc-
ture. I think the cost is about
$15 million. But we set aside
money every year to do that.
Grants will help soften this
blow as well.
Redevelopment: "We have
showplaces and run-down
areas. The areas in our business
corridor are full of vacant
buildings. We have to have
responsible redevelopment.
This is essential to protecting
our tax base. We need a vibrant
business community. We need
businesses with customer
S support. I'm concerned that the
Georgetown Plaza could
become townhouses. If we
convert all of our commercial
property to lucrative town
houses and not demand mixed-
use, where does out tax base
go?"
Why should the voters
elect you?
"I have a proven record of
integrity, honesty and commit-
ment in serving the residents.
This city is at a crossroads. We
need to put into action the plans
I have been working on to
complete our projects for
improving storm drainage, our
roads, bridges and community
appearance. I am the only
person in this race who can
make these things happen."

from the Stone Age."
What are the top issues
in Lighthouse Point?
Speeding: "We need a
system of warnings. We
wouldn't be a police state but
we can say 'You've been
given three chances.' It's like
baseball. Three strikes and
you're out. Also we should
lower our speed limit to 25.
Pompano Beach and Deer-
field Beach have lower speed
limits. I will work to get the
limits lowered. This is an
issue people all over town are
concerned about. We also
need to educate the public
about the dangers of speeding
in our neighborhoods. We can
use local newspaper, deliver
pamphlets and use the Citi-
zens on Patrol [COP] groups.
I will work very closely with
the police department to
attack this problem. It's
major."
Aging Infrastructure:
"This is a nagging problem
and there's no way to get
away from it. But this city is
50 years old. Right now we
are replacing the bridge near
44 St. That cost $600,000.
Fortunately they put a little bit
away, so we have about
$300,000 in a "bridge" fund.
The city is working on grants,
but they may not come
through. We can use the city
contingency fund, but we
have $2.5 million, the largest
one in Broward County.
These bridges weren't built
for these big construction
trucks. Eventually all of the
bridges will have to be
updated. Storm drains are also
50 years old, in some cases,
and we will continue to have
to replace them. This problem
won't go away.
"We need to save money
for a rainy day and find grants
for these problems. We don't
want to go back to the tax
payers for money to correct
these problems."
Why should the voters
elect you?
"I'm a people's person, and
I've dealt with problems and
solutions all my life. The city
needs a 'take-charge' person,
and I have the time to work.
I'm accessible to the commu-
nity and involved in it. I have a

Steve Boyette is one of many Pompano Beach batters who struggled against Northeast High School's Justin Jamison in Wednesday's game. Boyette later

By Paul Yroia
PELICAN SPORTS

Northeast High School starting
pitcher Justin Jamison got off to a
great start, fanning the first six Tor-
nado batters he faced. However, his
fastball ran out of gas while the
pitching of Pompano Beach High
School's Ryan McCullen got better as
the game went on. When it was over,
McCullen completed a shutout of
Northeast to earn an opening day
victory.
McCullen allowed just four hits
over seven innings, most of them in
the first four innings of the game. He
received defensive support from
shortstop Steve Boyette, who made a
number of fine plays throughout the


game.
"Actually, Boyette got off to a
slow start," said Pompano Coach
George Petick. "He stayed back on a
ball in the first inning and the batter
beat the throw for an infield hit. After
that, though, he really put on a show."
The game was scoreless until the
fifth inning. There, Jossias Genao
reached Jamison for the Golden
Tornadoes first hit. The speedy
Genao took a long leadoff and drew a
pickoff throw to first base. Jamison's
throw was wild and landed deep in the
right field corer. Petick said Genao's
jets excited the team. "He really flew
around the bases, eventually scoring
on the play. It pumped up our team
down the stretch."
Genao scored the first run of the
season and Boyette scored the second


in the sixth inning when he scored on
a sacrifice fly off the bat of Eric
Cushel.
McCullen finished the game with
seven strikeouts, walked only one
batter, and allowed four singles.
Jamison, who took the loss for North-
east, struck out a dozen Tornadoes.
Petick says that McCullen pitched
a great game and his pitching coach
called a great game. "Mark Klein is a
great pitching coach. He called every
pitch today. And McCullen really
delivered throwing strikes all day."
The Pompano Beach JV team
plays a doubleheader at Monarch
High School on Saturday with
games beginning at 11 a.m. and 1
p.m.

Lady Tornadoes on wrong end of No-Hitter; drop


first game of season to Pine Crest, 3 0


I'


Pine Crest's Julia Brezing
fanned five lady Tornadoes
in route to throwing a no-
hitter to beat Pompano Beach
High School in softball ac-
tion last Tuesday. It was the
first loss for the lady Torna-
does this year.


By Paul Proia
PELICAN SPORTS

Pine Crest pitcher, Julia
Brezing, spent seven innings
breezing through Pompano
High School batters, finishing
with a no-hitter and a 3 0 win.
For the Lady Tornadoes
softball team, it was the first


loss of the season after
winning two previous con-
tests.
Casey Driscoll was solid
in her third start of the season,
striking out five batters and
allowing just three runs. Two
of the runs came in the third
inning. With two runners on
base, the Lady Tornadoes
appeared to have forced a


runner at third base to end the
inning. However, neither of
the two umpires saw the play
as it occurred and the Pine
Crest runner was declared
safe. Jessica Lokeinsky
followed with a double that
scored two runs to give Pine
Crest a lead it never relin-
quished.
Brezing had fanned just


three batters through six
innings, but reared back and
struck out two batters in the
final frame, including
Michelle Briceno for the final
out. The ace of the defending
district champions, Brezing
didn't allow a baserunner
until she walked Christy
Burton in the fourth inning,
and only allowed three


Pompano batters to reach base
in the contest.
After three home games,
Pompano High hits the road
with Thursday contests
against Cardinal Gibbons and
North Broward Prep before
returning home to face
Blanche Ely High School on
Friday, March 4.

'Taste of the Beach' a


gastronomic and economic


success in Lauderdale-By-The Sea


Local Florida Scenes Past & Present
-, ^s ,..D; ,-,-,


By Paul Proia
PELICAN NEWS
The largest tent ever
assembled to hold the
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea
Chamber of Commerce's
"Taste of the Beach" was
barely large enough to
contain all of the people who
came to enjoy the food and
learn about the many fine
restaurants that belong to the
Chamber.
"We sold more than 300
tickets in advance of the
event," said Executive
Director Judy Swaggerty.
"We've never had that many
tickets sold in any of the
others. By 8 p.m., we were
well over 500 tickets sold
and counting. It's the best
turnout we have ever had."
Those in attendance
could sample the wares of
some of the finest restau-
rants in the area, including
Aruba's, Serafina Waterfront
Bistro, Jersey Mike's Subs,
WineStyles, Da Vinci's New
York Style Pizzeria,
Casablanca Caf6, Damon's
Grill, Shooters, Stork's Caf6,
and even students from the
Culinary Arts Department of
the Art Institute of Fort
Lauderdale and more.
Funds collected at the
event go to the Chamber of
Commerce and to the
Culinary Arts program at the
Art Institute of Fort Lauder-
dale. Each year, the Cham-
ber makes a donation to
provide scholarships based
on merit and financial need.
This year, a check for $1,000
was presented to Klaus
Freidenreich, chair of
Culinary Arts.

out! The annual Sample/McDougald
House Preservation Society Roast was
a "roaring" success, both as a
fundraiser and as an evening's
entertainment. Broward County
Mayor Kristen Jacobs was the guest
of "honor" and was a great drawing
card as a local list of dignitaries and
"social butterflies" gathered to raise
funds to open the historic home to the
public in late 2005. Focusing on
Jacob's interest in historical preserva-
tion and ecology the "roasters" really
let loose, Broward County Commis-
sioner Diana Wasserman-Rubin
presented the mayor with a bottle of
water only half full and declared it to
be the last potable water in the
county, she also added a cup full of
Everglades sand to be used in the
beach renourishment programs.

collection of teddy bears also added to
the choices of what to buy. There was
even a "doll hospital" to mend any
injuries from just a little bit too much
loving from young hands!
aturday Night was the Beta
Sigma Phi benefit for the
Broward Children's Center
at the Lighthouse Point Yacht Club.
The Gamma Eta Chapter of this
sorority has taken a strong interest in
the medically fragile and disabled
children BCC provides for. This
year's theme was Mardi Gras and the
folks really got into the mood. The
generous gifts for the raffles and silent
auction were displayed for the brightly
dressed guests to bid on during the
cocktail hour.
Chairwoman JoAnn McGowan
opened the fundraiser by reminding
that Beta Sigma Phi stands for friend-
ship, learning and love, and the
sorority wants to continue sharing
those gifts with the Broward
Children's Center. She introduced Joe
Piccirilli, a founding member of ELF,
a consumer electronic industry charity
for children, and Joe told us of the 30
projects in 18 children's centers across
the country that have been assisted by
their program. At that very moment
the children at BCC were at their
center watching their newly donated
home theater system. I hope they were
having as much fun as we were.
Thank you JoAnn, Joe, ELF and all
others involved in providing this state
of the art equipment for "our"
children's benefit. Several of our
friends are Beta Sigma Phi and we had
a chance to visit with Kathy Carroll,
Director of Developmental Programs
at BCC, Ruth Ann Fleming, Cathy
Prenner and Sue Nelson. One of
these ladies bid on the "Seduction
Basket" and won. We won't say who,
but her husband arrived just in time for
the good news. When you think of our
local charities, keep the Broward
Children's Center, located in Pompano
Beach, close to your heart. Many of
these exceptionally fragile children have
only the center to call "home" and only
the caregivers to call "family." If you
missed the event and want to make a
contribution call 954-943-7336 ext. 104.

Vone Research granted rights to search for wreckage of Gil Bias


By Paul Proia
PELICAN NEWS
A local underwater re-
search firm believes it can re-
trieve artifacts that would
prove the final resting place of
perhaps the most important
shipwreck in Broward County,
the Gil Blas.
Vone Research has
partnered with Pompano
Beach High School through a
program called "Touching
History", having acquired
what it believes is one of the


anchors of the Gil Bias. The
anchor is being salvaged in a
special electrolysis tank at the
high school so that it can be
preserved as an historical arti-
fact.
Now, Stephen Attis, presi-
dent of Vone Research, thinks
he has found the final resting
place near the Hillsboro Inlet.
In order to perform the search,
he needs permission from the
city to place his boats inside
areas now unavailable to boats
and marked by buoys.


"We already have permits
from the Army Corps of Engi-
neers and Department of En-
vironmental Protection. All
we need is approval from the
city," Attis told Pompano
Beach City Commissioners.
"This is exciting for our
area," says Attis. "We will be
bringing underwater archeol-
ogy to local schools."
Attis believes the Gil Bias
is located just north of the in-
let, but has identified five dif-
ferent areas that he would like


to investigate for the Gil Bias
and other wrecks.
"We will be very careful
not to disturb the environ-
ment," said Attis. "We al-
ready monitor dredging in the
area and understand what is
expected of our work. We
will work within the city's
rules."
Hearing Attis's testimony,
the Pompano Beach city com-
mission unanimously ap-
proved Vone's request.


The Gil Bias was driven
ashore during a hurricane in
September, 1835. Some of
the first white settlers in the
region were salvaging the Gil
Bias when an Indian raid killed
number of area settlers. Soon
after, the rest moved south to-
ward Key Biscayne to avoid
trouble. This contributed to
Broward County not being
settled until the 1890s.


LBTS denies construction


of dock to couple


0


Lighthouse Point to


buy Bucket Trucks


By Fernanda Medici
PELICAN WRITER

For now, citizens living in
Lauderdale-by-the-Sea
(LBTS) won't have dock
privileges after the Town
Council turned thumbs down
Tuesday night on a request by
Robert and Sandra Isaacs to
build a dock on town property
at the end of SE 15* Street
near the "Welcome to Bel
Air" sign.
The Isaacs proposed
building a dock for them-
selves and one for the town on
the property under question.
Some residents wanted the
property to become a public
park.
The request was turned


down because of protests
from the community and
opposition from town offi-
cials.
"I was encouraged by the
number of calls from the
community, and really, I think
it brought the community
together," said Ed Kennedy,
vice mayor of LBTS. The
commissioners voted unani-
mously to keep that property
public.
Kennedy was pleased not
only with the public outpour-
ing but also with the many
suggestions citizens offered
for use of the property. He
also noted that after speaking
to the vice mayor of Broward
County and others, there is a
possibility of getting a
$10,000 grant to build on the


property.
"The only reason I voted
for this on the beginning is
because under our rules of
consideration, only if you
vote for something may we
group for reconsideration,"
Mayor Oliver Parker said.
Virginia Holder, a resident
of LBTS, said the land where
the Isaacs live on now used
to be a public pool. The city
failed to pay the taxes for the
pool, and the Isaacs paid their
late taxes and built their home
on the property.
"If any of the residents
knew about this, we would
have paid the taxes," Holder
said.


Lighthouse Point is
looking for grants to cover
half the expenses related to
purchasing a new bucket
truck to be used in trim-
ming trees and hanging
banners throughout the
city. In the past, the city
has rented bucket trucks
when necessary, but recent
hurricanes required the city
to consider owning its own
truck.
According to Public
Works Director Art Gra-
ham, the city had already
budgeted $20,000 to pur-
chase a used truck, but


after the hurricanes of
2004, there were no used
trucks available for less
than $50,000. However,
Graham noted that if the
city were to get state grants
to cover half of the cost of
a new vehicle, the city
could purchase a new truck
at a cost of only $35,000 to
the city.
Graham noted that
efforts to regularly trim
trees proved successful last
year. Not a single oak tree
that lined a city street fell
during Hurricane Frances
or Hurricane Jeanne.

PELICAN WRITER
Citizens and commission-
ers of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea
(LBTS) are ready to remove


that the multiway STOP signs
that LBTS is requesting
cannot be supported for "the
purposes of speed control or
traffic calming." They main-
tained that the traffic control
has already been proved
ineffective by traffic control
devices.
The STOP signs that
LBTS requested were on
Bougainvilla Avenue at
Hibiscus going south, and
another one on Hibiscus at
Bougainvilla Avenue going
east. If LBTS decides to put
the STOP signs without
Broward County permission
they will have to take full
financial responsibility as
well as accepting liability.
The barriers are preventing
the traffic from traveling on
Commercial Blvd. south to
A1A. According to Chuck
Clark, the Mayor pro Tem,
the reason why so many
people are eager to remove it
is because "they thought it


Council to find out how much
will it cost for LBTS to take
full responsibility as far as
liability insurance, the STOP
signs, and the traffic engineer-
ing studies.

Thought!

i,^-^'S'


was a safety hazard, and I
agree."
Citizens started the request
to remove the barriers around
last spring and it was ap-
proved last July by LBTS. But
the town cannot remove the
barriers if there are no STOP
signs. Mayor Oliver Parker
explained to residents that it's
impossible to leave the
intersections with no signal-
ization at all because people
will collide into each other.
"I am getting tired of
going again and again to the
county every time our resi-
dents want some protection,
and it's getting really embar-
rassing not to be able to give
it to them," said Parker
referring to Clark's desire to
expedite this process. Clark
feels that this issue has to be
solved so they can move on to
other important issues.
The decision on this matter
was postponed until the next
meeting, to allow the Town

Nothing says

quick and easy

meals like cheese.

So many cheeses, so little
time. That's the good news
for busy families facing
dinnertime. More than 450
types, varieties and styles of
cheese are available from
Wisconsin to help you put a
delicious meal on the table in
minutes.
On-the-go families every-
where can spend less time in
the kitchen and more time
doing the things they enjoy
when they make recipes that
feature cheese. Delicious,
nutritious cheese can be
enjoyed with fresh fruit,
shredded or cubed in salads,
melted into pasta or vegetable
dishes or browned on top of
broiled chicken, steak or fish.
Made in the caring, time-
tested tradition of the state's
award-winning cheese
makers, Wisconsin cheeses
can bring mellow, tangy,
sharp, peppery, nutty and
aromatic flavors to any dish.
When you want to make a big
impact with just one ingredi-
ent, say "Cheese!"
Visit www.WisDairy.com for
more cheese serving ideas and
recipes. And while you're
there, enter the Wisconsin
Milk Marketing Board's
"$1,000,000 Win in a Flash"
game.


Cheese Chatter
Look for these fresh and
appealing cheeses to add flavor
fast!


Fresh cheeses:
Cottage cheese, Ricotta, Feta,
Queso Blanco and fresh Mozza-
rella taste great in savory, hot
entrees such as lasagna, enchila-
das, Greek-style pasta and pizza
or cold in salads. These cheeses
also pair well with fresh fruits
such as pineapple and strawber-
ries, or fresh vegetables such as
tomatoes, cucumbers, black
olives and onions.


Semi-soft cheeses:
Monterey Jack, Muenster, Brick,
Havarti, Swiss, Brie, Fontina,
Gouda, Edam, Provolone and
Camembert are delicious in
appetizers, sandwiches, pizzas,
quesadillas or burritos.
Blue-veined cheeses:
Blue and Gorgonzola add a
savory note to dressings, dips,
salads, spreads, steaks, burgers
and chicken.


Hard cheeses:
Gruyere, Parmesan, Asiago,
Romano and aged Cheddar can
be grated on top of simmering
onion, potato or vegetable soups;
shaved with a vegetable peeler
or cheese parer on main dish
salads; or melted into casseroles.

Upper Deck offers diners grand array of surf & turf


By Joseph Pittelli
FOOD WRITER
It was a beautiful Monday
night, a great night to eat
outside. But where to eat?
My companion and I, we'll
call her Janel for now, headed
to a new spot-or so we
thought. The Upper Deck,
located at 101 N. Riverside
Drive, overlooks the Intrac-
oastal Waterway. What a
great place to have dinner!
We were promptly greeted
by our host Renate Flik, who
with her husband, Michael,
and daughter, Denise, own
and operate this family
business.
After talking with Renate
we discovered that this
restaurant was formally in


Fort Lauderdale and known as
The Deck-famous for its
breakfasts.
Our server, Sean, placed
fresh hot focaccia bread and
humus on our table. This
delicious treat is given to all
the patrons as they are seated.
A great change from the old
standby bread and butter.
We started our dinner with
a bowl of chicken chowder. It
was full of fresh vegetables
and chunks of chicken. This
twist in chowder was per-
fectly delicious!
We were also given a tuna
tartar appetizer served over a
bed of mixed greens, crusted
bread pieces and drizzled with
Wasabi sauce. A tuna lovers
delight! We were off to a
great start.


Next our entrees. Janel had
fresh homemade lobster
ravioli served in a light blush
sauce. And I had the honor of
having the night's special,
bouillabaisse. The rim of the
bowl was lined with mussels
and in the center a generous
collection of salmon, scallops,
shrimp and calamari all in a
fabulous broth that was not
too thick or too soupy. It was
dynamite. There was so much
I couldn't finish-but I'm
sure it didn't help that I kept
tasting Janel's dish.
Renate made a special trip
by the table to warn us to save
room for dessert. Great advice
because we had a banana
crepe topped with vanilla ice
cream and powdered choco-
late, but not to be out done


77td


Dynamite! The Bouillabaisse bowl was lined with mussels with a center filled
with a generous collection of salmon, scallops, shrimp and calamari all in a
fabulous broth that was not too thick or too soupy.

was a chocolate mousse that

From start to finish our
meal was excellent! I for one
am glad they moved to our
town. My hat's off to the
Fliks.

Dave Thomas Center in Pompano Beach offers adult classes

ranging from English skills to professional training


Medical billing, GED,
cake decorating, other
skills are all part of the
curriculum
By Paul Proia
PELICAN NEWS
For the first time, adminis-
trators at the Dave Thomas
Adult Education Center, 180
SW 2 St., Pompano Beach,
had to combine two classes
into one, and are addressing
issues with a decreasing
enrollment, especially in
classes designed to help teach
immigrants how to better
speak English.
Principal Linda J. Wilhoit
says that the challenge is
attracting students who don't
find out about their services
through traditional marketing
channels.


"A lot of our prospective
students don't get or are
unable to read the paper or
understand phrases in a
commercial," says Wilhoit.
"So, word of mouth becomes
our biggest draw."
Casey Cahill, English for
Speakers of Other Languages
(ESOL) department head,
says that word of mouth
referrals draw 70 percent of
the students.
"They are family and
friends," says Cahill. "In fact,
when we're in the classroom,
we ask them to bring a friend
and hopefully that person will
consider enrolling."
Wilhoit, Cahill, and
Department Head Mary Kahn
want people to know that the
Dave Thomas Education
Center offers a great learning
center at a great value -


usually one-fifth the cost of
community college rates and
are looking for additional
ways to promote their ser-
vices.
Adaptation comes with
the territory
Started in 1986, the Adult
Education Center began in the
old Pompano Beach High
School building. When that
building was brought back to
into regular use for high
school students five years
ago, the adult education
center was split up into five
different campuses. The
Dave Thomas Education
Center is actually a converted
Winn-Dixie on 2nd Street just
east of Dixie Highway.
"You can't really tell -
except in a couple of areas.
Our lunch room is where the
carts used to be stored, so


there is a bit of an incline
there," says Kahn. "And, I'm
not sure they ever balanced
the air conditioning. The area
where produce and frozen
foods used to be is still colder


than the rest of the building.
However, the building is
perfect for what we do and the
designers really made great

use of the space."
Another Pompano campus,


the Charles Drew Family
Resource Center provides
parents who want to get a
General Education Develop-
ment (GED) diploma or high
school diploma with an


additional benefit. There is a
day care there, as well as
head start and Pre-K classes.
Adult classes focus on job
skills with the basics leading
the way. There are seven


different levels of ESOL
classes. Other classes help
students earn a high school
diploma or GED, teach basic
computer skills, medical
billing skills, and even teach
cake decoration and design.
"People come here with a
variety of different stories,"
says Kahn. "Some use this as
a stepping stone for college.
Others go into real estate or
vocational schools. There is
no single reason why they
come here. They just do."
Karin Bender, who teaches
two ESOL classes each day,
says that the students here are
always eager to learn. Bender
notes, "They are very sincere
about coming to school, love
the idea of improving them-
selves, and learning English.
They really appreciate the
opportunity."
Kahn adds that students at
the Adult Education Center
represent 47 different countries.
In Bender's afternoon class,
students were from Brazil,
Columbia, Russia, Equador,
Peru, and Venezuela.
With so many students
coming from all over the
world, the Adult Education
Center now offers a class
designed to help someone
through the immigration
process. "We had a low
turnout the first time," says
Kahn. "I think people didn't

understand what we were
trying to offer. Now that we
have had a class go through
the process, we hope to see it
expand with each subsequent
offering.
Other new classes include
yoga and Oriental art.
"If people make a request,
we take note of it. If we get a

lot of requests, we design a
class and start looking for a
qualified instructor," Kahn
explains. "We need the
creativity, though, to keep
building our enrollment."
Class sizes range from 20
to 45 students in a classroom,
yet you can see a personal
touch. Bender's class fea-
tured a presentation by Norm
Rasmussen, a volunteer who
lives in John Knox Village.
Rasmussen worked with the
group not only on speaking
English, but on setting goals.
Students offered up their own
goals not only for class but
for life.
Wilhoit says that setting
goals is something we all
need to do. "It's a personal
thing, and it's a business
objective, too. Our students
have a goal of getting a job
and being a part of the
community. Our goal is to
help them get there."
