SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN
Two condominium residents in
Lighthouse Point were recently
victims of thieves posing as insect
repellant'salesmen.
As the culprits supposedly sprayed
for bugs, they asked the victims to
come close to see what they were
doing. Then they sprayed their ring
fingers with the repellant.

diamond rings in the milk, the men
dropped change in the cup and stole
the rings.
Two such incidents occurred just
before Thanksgiving.
Late last year thieves showed up at
the door of condos offering to clean
carpets for $50. They had only spray
bottles and brushes.
"They would ask the resident to sit
in the kitchen," Naploli said. "And as
they spot cleaned the carpets, they
also went through belongings." Then
they would tell the resident not to
walk on the rugs for awhile, so it
would be some time before they
realized they were crime victims.

Bob Rubini engineers the tracking of
14 trains from his control center in his
garage.

families a holiday gift of
watching more than one
dozen trains race across
villages, over mountains and
into the woods.
Years of collecting trains
and retro models of diners,
gas stations and other items,
are evident in Bob's garage.
He's set up 14 "0" gauge
models on a 12 by 24-foot
table, preparing for the:'
nightly shows at his home,.
3721 NE 25 Ave.
He manages to move,
deftly around the large table,
explaining that sometimes he
has to walk on the table to
arrange a mountain or place
model planes on a runway
next to the train tracks. "It's
strong enough." he laughs. '"I
built it." Bob has smaller
trains on a shelf in his garage,
referred to as "H-O" gauge:
electric trains. "You know
what "H-O" means?" he asks.
"It took me 15 years to find
out. It means Half-O-gauge."
His sense of humor adds to
the holiday ambiance of this
unique garage. He even wears
a little humor. His tee-shirt-
reads, "Old Engineers Ne:er
Die, They Just Lose Their
Steam."
Bob never had any interest
in actually engineering a
train. But he did race, repair
and build stock cars for 17
years. He takes his hobbies
very seriously.
Last year, during the
holiday season, the Rubinis
entertained over 1,500 people
just outside their garage as the
trains whistled under tunnels,
across bridges and under ski
lifts.
Cars drive up to a minia-
ture McDonald's restaurant,
place their orders and drive to
the second window. A family
with a camping trailer pulled
by a vintage Chevrolet sedan
stands at one corner of the
scene. They could be waiting
to watch the trains.
The train show will take
place from Dec. 17 to Jan. 1,
from 7 p.m. to midnight.
Donations will be accepted
for the MAJIC 102.7's

Paula Andrews and her
new husband Ken came to
America from Chile just a
year ago in search of better
opportunities and a better life.
In Chile, she is a qualified
physical education teacher
with her degree from the
Universidad Catolica de
Valparaiso.
: She has more than five
years of experience teaching
in a Health Club, an elemen-
tary school and in a center for
elderly people.
In Lighthouse Point, here
she and her ne\t husband Ken
live, she struggles to master
the English language as she
waits for her green card so
that she can eventually work.
"Right now I am attending

plains, slowly choosing each
word. "I am in the ESOL

Andrews attends classes

Andrews, whose entire
family remains in Chile, talks
about life there.."You can
work all your life and never
earn enough money to enjoy
owning your own home, car
or get to travel. I see and envy
most Americans who seem to
have this opportunity. In
Chile, salaries are very low
and the good things in life are
very expensive and not
affordable to a young, profes-
sional like me."
She looks forward to
working in America, but
carefully explains, "I cannot
work here unless people can
understand me, because in my
field of physical education I
am giving instructions to the
elderly or to children. Both
-need to be able to understand
me. Volunteering with the
elderly, as I am doing four
hours every week is giving
me experience with the
language. And I try to speak -
only English with my hus-
band, Kevin, who is an
American."
Paula met her husband in
Chile where he has also lived
for many years. "We married

bride living in a new country

smiles, adding. "I hope to

but this is a step by step
process. My big goal is to
master English. Once I have
done that, I will need to be
certified as a teacher here and
that too requires me to meet
certain criteria."
When she started volun-
teering four months ago in the
Health Center at John Knox
Village, she could barely
communicate. "I was embar-
rassed to speak because my
vocabulary was so limited.
Now, the residents ask me
about my family and my life
in Chile. The more I speak,
the easier it becomes.
* That is also true about my
relationship with the staff. I
am always thrilled when I am
understood and when I
understand what they are
instructing me to do."
The staff at the Village
Health Center had nothing but
praise for Andrews.
Erik Ninortes, activities
director, says, "Her language
skills have really improved
since she began here. Our
residents especially enjoy her
because she is young, enthusi-

She's a caring, friendly young
lady who has been a great

past four months."
Andrews admits she
prefers the elderly over
children. "I found it very
rewarding in Chile to be able
to work with this age group
and help them physically and
mentally. When I am a good
speaker of English and have
been certified as a teacher, I
will seek a similar position in
America."
Asked how long she thinks
this will be, she says she
doesn't know. "Kevin always
encourages me and it is

able here every day. And I

Lighthouse Point commissioners terminate contract with

company that wants $250,000 more for library renovations


By Judy Vik
SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN
City commissioners in
Lighthouse Point approved a
resolution to terminate
negotiations with Hernandez
Construction for work on
expansion of the city library.
Commissioners authorized
negotiations with the second
ranked firm, Roepnack
Construction.
The resolution passed 4-1
during a special meeting
Tuesday morning with Vice
President Michael Long
casting the only no vote..
On Dec. 1, Hernandez
Construction submitted a
revised cost estimate of
$830,788 for the library
expansion. The budget
allotted is $632,000.
Long asked whether the
budget is realistic when prices
have been skyrocketing for-
construction materials such as
rebar and asphalt.
"How do we know Roep-
nack can do this, when the
cost of materials is probably
the same for both?" Long
asked. He said the special
meeting was called in such a
* rush, when there's a good
chance the project won't go
out to bid until January.
"We're on a slippery slope
not having Hernandez here,
using the reasoning that it
doesn't meet our budget,"
Long said.


Mayor Fred Schorr
responded that the project is
on a time schedule. He said
state law prevents the city
from talking to another
contractor or supplier while
under contract. "I will fight to
get that law changed, at least
for small cities," he said.
Schorr said he thinks the
numbers are logical and that
the city should be able to save
substantial dollars by moving
from Hernandez to someone
else. "Will we get it built for
$630,000? I don't know until
we talk to the next person in
line," he said.
Schorr noted that not one
dime of the money for the
library construction was tax
money from residents. He
said the majority was from
contributions and a state
grant.
"Do we stop if we don't


S.
''~~

have enough money?" Long
asked.
"If no one meets the bid,
we may have to look at the
scope of the project," Schorr
said.
Four years ago the city
appropriated $50,000 for
library improvements.
Schorr said Doreen
Gauthier, library director,
came up with the idea to
apply for a state grant and was
successful. Then they had
$570,000, and the rest was
raised in donations.
If commissioners moved on
to the second ranked firm, Com-
missioner Chip Lamarca asked
how long it would take to get
their estimate, noting that con-
struction costs are volatile.
Schorr said he hoped they
would have an estimate in two
to three weeks, and they could
start construction by January.

"We have to have something by
March or lose the state's grant,"
he said.
Commissioner Susie Gor-
don said she thought it would
be prudent to put the project out
to bid if they can't work a deal
with Roepnack. She said the
city's contingency fund has
been hit pretty hard with hurri-
cane costs.

Johnson said she felt Roepnack
would work with them.
"They've been in town so many
years." The firm is now build-
ing the police station. Johnson
said she had some concerns
about Hernandez over delays.
"Let's go out and see if we
can save this money," Johnson
said, adding that "$200,000 is a
lot of money. It's worth taking
a chance."

West Palm Beach police
sent a S.W.A.T. to the hotel,
but it was another "alert
officer" who recognized the
suspect standing in front of a
local Publix Supermarket.
"He was standing there
smoking a cigarette," said Oh.
Cruz was picked up by
police and taken to a West
Palm Beach jail.
Oh and Siegal spent the
next few hours compiling a
warrant to search Cruz's
room.
"At 5:30 a.m., we went to
Judge Karen Martin's home
for a signature," said Oh.
Oh and Siegal found the
gun, wallet, cell phone and
the clothes Cruz had been
wearing during the incident.
For these two Lighthouse
Point officers, who had just


finished their shifts on Nov.
30, it ended up being another
30 hours of police work to
capture Cruz, who remains in
jail charged with attempted
first degree murder along with
other charges.
"This is police work," said
Oh. "We're very proud when
we can take someone off the
streets."


Scams
Continued from page 1
During this holiday
season, Napoli advises
residents to be careful about
leaving their purses open
while shopping and carrying
excessive amounts of cash or
checks. Be aware of strange
people and cars.
To avoid being a victim of


identification theft, she
recommended getting a copy
of a credit report annually.
Look for any suspicious
inquiries, such as from a car
dealer if you haven't been car
shopping. "The bad guys can
change an address and take
out a loan in a victim's
name," she said.
Napoli also recommends
watching for your bills in the
mail and being aware of when


they come. She advises
mailing bills at the post office
and taking in mail at home as
soon as possible. And leave
Social Security cards at home.
"Don't give pertinent
personal information over the
phone to solicitors and be
careful whom you're giving
information to even at a store
from those offering credit
cards," she cautions.

Pompano Bowl and Gary's Sports Bar & Grille


has been racking up high scores for 31 years


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
Pert and pretty, Laura
Chaiken, does not look like
she might run a very success-
ful 32-lane bowling alley and
Sports Bar and Grille. But
make no mistake, she does.
"It was January of 1975 when
rny husband, Gary and I took
over Pompano Bowl," she
says flashing a million dollar
smile. "We both worked here
in the beginning, but he
decided to build other busi-
nesses so it's been my baby
ever since."
Now heading up a staff of
20, Chaiken admits it was
hard when she first took over.
"Because I was a woman, I
had trouble getting fast
responses from service
people. Over the years, I
gained their respect. Atti-
tudes about women have
changed in 31 years. Now, it's
no big deal," she laughs. "All
of my suppliers know who
handles the purse strings."
Although she ran the grille
herself until August of '96, it
is now subleased to "Pizza
Mike" and Chaiken is happy
with the situation. "My
brother, Ralph Lugo runs the
Sports Bar which offers
television coverage of every
sport there is, as it happens."
Pompano Bowl is still an
action spot for bowlers, but
there's a lot more going on, as
*haiken points out. "We
spend about $20,000 a year on
NFL (football), NHL
(hockey), basketball, baseball,
and the trivia NTN games.
Twice a week, patrons can
play free Texas Hold 'em,
winning bragging rights,
points and the right to com-
pete. Trivia NTN games and
darts are free and always
available. Only the pool
tables are coin operated. I
think the money is well spent
because our sports bar is very
. dynamic. Something is always
happening and that's a big
draw for our customers."
Is bowling as popular as
it once was?
Bowling alleys are high
tech now. When a group
checks in, the lane is turned
on at the control desk.
Bowlers put their names into
the console. Their names
appear on an overhead

monitor signaling them when
it's time to bowl. Score
keeping and everything is
now automatic. League
records are kept as are indi-
vidual bowler's averages and
handicaps.
Chaiken says, "Leagues
are not as popular as they
once were. In fact, statistics
indicate there are 11 million
fewer league bowlers than
there were a decade ago. The
weekly commitment of a
league seems to be harder for
people to make. Maybe
because there are more single
parents and folks working two
jobs. But recreational open
bowling is more popular than
ever. We see big increases. "
Pompano Bowl still has 20
leagues which includes an age
range from children of five to
seniors in their mid 90s. "We
have leagues going morning,
afternoon and evening,"
Chaiken says, "but we can
always accommodate open
play at the same time. We do

must be done at least six
monthsin advance. Using a
mirror, the artists paint my
exact design inside the
ornamfent."
Anderson holds up her
Hillsboro Lighthouse orna-
ment which sells for $24.99.
Anderson has a sentimental
attachment to this lighthouse
for it was the setting for her
marriage to Pete 20 years ago.
The ornament features
colorful renderings of the
Lighthouse, the Hillsboro
Club, a sportfish boat. a
hibiscus, the old keeper's
cottage, now demolished, and
the Coast Guard and Ameri-
can flags. "I had exactly 144


ornaments like this made. I
donate a percentage of my
sales to the Hillsboro Light-
house Preservation Society.
Last year, my donation was
$500."
Local collectors also line
up for Anderson's second
ornament which celebrates
Pompano Beach's Sample
McDougald house.
It features Santa making a
delivery at the house's
chimney and also making
another delivery, driving the
bright red, "old 75" fire truck.
Produced to help fundraise for
the Sample McDougald
House, it is being sold for
$24.99 at the Green Market in
the space occupied by the
Historical Society. It is also
available in limited quantity at
the store.


Pat Anderson shows off a unique holi-
day gift item.
A third ornament was
commissioned this year by
The Seminole Hard Rock
Hotel and Casino, a major
sponsor of the Fort Lauder-
dale Winterfest Boat Parade.
Anderson was asked to create
an ornament featuring the
parade and the King Tut


exhibit which is about to open
in Fort Lauderdale. All 756
ornaments produced have
been sold. But the official
Winterfest t-shirts, which
feature Anderson's rendering
of the Winterfest Boat Parade
and the King Tut exhibit are
available for $15 in the store.
With a sigh, Anderson
explains, "This season
everything has been done
under great stress. Both the
store and the gallery were
flooded. We lost business and
inventory and hope the
holiday season will help us
make up our losses."
Never missing an opportu-
nity, Anderson has created
greeting cards which show
Wilma's destruction with
pathos and humor. An out-
door setting features an


uprooted tree trimmed with
lights, and a windowless
house with other obvious
damage. Along with the
visual, the message reads,
"Katrina clobbered us, Wilma
wacked us, Gamma got us."
The ornaments and the
recently designed greeting
cards are just a sample of the
unique gifts and art available
at My Own Cruising Journal
for people who enjoy the
Florida boating lifestyle.
As Anderson says, "We
have beautiful candle center-
pieces, individually created
sea wreaths, and 17- and 22-
inch, replicas of the Hillsboro
Lighthouse. This is Pete's
project. The Lighthouse has
been intricately crafted in wire
in the Philippines. Collectors
will love it." Call 954-785-

Floats, marching
bands and all the
hoopla that goes
with a parade were in abun-
dance this week at the Pom-
pano Beach Yuletide Holiday
Parade. The sidewalks of
Atlantic Boulevard teemed
with revelers as the brightly
colored parade brought Santa
Claus to town. We visited with
Ann and Brian (Skeet)
* Philhower's family during the
parade and could see the joy on
their children's faces. The Ely
Marching Band stopped
directly in front of us. We all
marveled
at how
loud a bass
drum can
be. After
Santa

We spent a great deal of
time with Corps member Ray
S Donahue who serves as a fire
fighter when he doesn't have
his Irish up and his kilt on.

morning started in
Pompano at the
Green Market where we were
happy to see many of last
year's vendors and new ones as
well. We started off with a cup
of tea from Janel at

members of the Pompano
Beach Historical Society.
Dan Hobby filled us in on
the exciting news for this

Ann Marie and Jim Dunn named Queen


and Pharaoh of Winterfest Black Tie Ball


By Sandy Johnson
SOCIAL MATTERS
Saturday night, Dec. 10,
.kicks off this year's
Winterfest Activities with
the official Winterfest Black
Tie Ball taking place in the
ballroom of the Seminole
Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
The theme of all the festivi-
ties this year is "Jewel of the
Nile" in honor of the King
Tut exhibit planned for the
Fort Lauderdale Art Museum
later this month. The ball
will honor the Queen and
Pharaoh of the event, local
jewelers and philanthropists,
Ann Marie and Jim Dunn.
The name J.R. Dunn
appears consistently as a
contributor to many charity
events in the local area. The
Dunn's Run, founded and
sponsored by the Dunns
years ago, benefitting the
Boys and Girls Club of


Deerfield Beach, is held each
year with runners racing from
Lighthouse Point to Deerfield
Beach.
The story of this family
begins in 1967 when Jim, a
sales representative for IBM
met Ann Marie Pelliccia, who
was working as a senior
secretary for the company.
Two years later they were
married and with a savings of
$10,000, they purchased a
small house in Hanover,
Massachusetts and converted
it into their first jewelry store,
The House of Gems.
While in.between insur-
ance policies, the store was
-robbed during its first year
and every piece of jewelry,
including customer jewelry in
for repairs, was taken. Jim
and Ann Marie went door to
door and pledged to replace

Only one customer gave

Florida to semi-retire.
They opened a small
jewelry boutique with just a
select group of clients served
by appointment only.
Word of mouth spread
and soon the Dunns de-
cided to buy a 6,000 square
foot building in Lighthouse
Point on Federal Highway
to showcase their family
business.
Today Jim, Ann Marie
and son, Sean, continue to
service their customers in
the same way they did so
many years ago.
Jim says he "loves" to
work. He doesn't play tennis,
golf or relax on the beach. "I
probably don't know anything
other than work. Work is my
job and my hobby," he says
Ann Marie adds, "We've
done business the old-fash-


ioned way. Nothing was
handed to us. We've had
to work very hard for
everything that we've
done. We knew that some
businesses lacked ethics at
times or the personal touch
of the owners. We knew
we could have something
unique here in South
Florida."
With a successful family
business, getting involved in
charity work seemed like a
logical step for the family to
pursue.
Jim was involved with the
Jan and Jim Moran Boys and
Girls Club in Deerfield and
ten years ago they were
looking for a signature event
to raise funds for their facility.
Out of this need, the Dunn's

With all these interests,
Ann Marie says, "Some-

long in the store as he is
always so very busy. Our
real time together is in the
evening when we relax, sip
a glass of wine and try to
talk pleasure rather busi-

After 36 years together
Ann Marie has nothing but
lowing things to say
out her life mate. "Jim


is very real and very
modest. He loves people
and we both believe that
you have to earn your

When asked how he
would like to be remem-

a big birthday party business
including bumpers. Many
fundraisers have turned to
bowling as an option.
Balistreri Realty, Westminster
Academy and St. Jude's
Research are just a few of the
fundraisers we do every year.
We provide the alleys, food,
and beverages. They arrange
the rest to suit their event."
Chaiken admits though
habits are changing, business
is still good. "Bowling is a
game that anyone can play. It
is still the number one partici-
pant sport in America. We
have families of three genera-
tions bowling together as well
as men, women and mixed
groups."
Jean Casey was bowling
with a group of friends while
the interview was taking
place. "I've been bowling for
46 years," she says. "I'm the
secretary of two night
leagues, one is female and one
is mixed. I'm here every
Tuesday afternoon, bowling
with my social group. And
I'm always here for the poker
games."
Sounds like this is a home


away from home. Chaiken
.nods, "We're open every day
and evening from 8:30 a.m.
until midnight Sunday-
Thursday and until 2 a.m. on .
Friday and Saturday. The
sports bar is open until 2 a.m.
every day." She ticks off the
variety of fees. "Open bowl-
ing fees are $5 a game. We
offer bowling and pizza
packages which are very
popular. Women's leagues in
the morning pay $8 for 3
games. During the day, senior
leagues pay between $6.75
and $7.25 for 3 games.
Evening leagues pay $10 for 3
games. We do a lot of
children's birthday parties and
we offer rent-a-lane specials
for groups up to 5. This
includes bowling, shoes, pizza
and a pitcher of soda. Bowl-
ing is a'fun sport that is also
basically inexpensive social
entertainment."
Asked what her working
schedule is, Chaiken says,
"I'm here Sunday through
Friday from morning until late
afternoon. I take a break to
pick up my grandchildren
from St. Elizabeth's. Their
parents work so I take them
home for milk and cookies. I
stay to help with homework."

Tucker Brothers Band to play at this

Saturday's Green Market in Pompano

In addition to the fresh fruits, w.
vegetables and other produce, the ,
featured entertainment at this
Saturday's Green Market will be '
the Tucker Brothers Band.
Their sound might best be ./
termed bluegrass, but some may
use the words "rockabilly" or
even "old-timey" to describe their
unique sound. The four South
Florida musicians have played
together for years, and are known
for their gospel-like harmonies
that pervade their music.
The Tucker Brothers will play
from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The Pompano Beach Green Market is open every Saturday (except December 24 and 31)
through May 6, 2006, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.. It is located in Pompano Beach's historic down-
town at the junction of NE First Street and Flagler Avenue.

Hassle-Free

Holidays
Take a break with sweet treats and
freshly brewed coffee

Holidays are all about hospitality,
and there's no better way to greet
guests than with a delectable treat
and freshly brewed hot cup of
coffee.
Maraschino cherries brighten an
easy-to-make pound cake, making
it perfect for a brunch buffet when
baked in a Bundt pan or as take-
along gifts when prepared as mini
loaves. Chewy oat bars too,
studded with red cherries, are
festive enough for any party, and
leftovers (if there are any) make a
welcome pick-me-up for weary
shoppers.
Best of all, both use ingredients
that are probably in your pantry,
which makes them quick to make,
leaving you with more time to
celebrate the season.



., . F'-






Cherry Mini
Pound Cakes
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Makes 6 mini cakes
1 1/4 cups butter, softened
2 3/4 cups sugar
5 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened
condensed milk (NOT
evaporated milk)
2 cups quartered maraschino
cherries, well drained
(two 16-ounce jars or
three 10-ounce jars), well
drained (reserve juice if
using frosting option*)
Powdered sugar
1. In large bowl, with electric
mixer, beat butter, sugar, eggs and
vanilla on low speed until blended,
then on high speed 5 minutes until
light and fluffy.
2. Combine flour, baking powder
and salt. Add dry ingredients
alternately with sweetened con-
densed milk to creamed mixture,
mixing lightly after each addition.
3. Fold in cherries. Turn batter into
greased and floured mini loaf pans.
4. Bake at 3500F 45 to 50 minutes
or until toothpick inserted near
center comes out clean.
5. Let cool in pans 5 minutes; invert
cakes onto rack and let cool
completely.
6. Dust with powdered sugar just
before serving.
Note: This recipe may also be
prepared in a 10-inch Bundt pan.
Use only 1/2 cup sweetened
condensed milk. Increase baking
time to 55 minutes plus 15 to 20
minutes covered loosely with foil,
shiny side out. Cake may be dusted
with powdered sugar prior to
serving or frosted. In medium
saucepan, combine remaining
sweetened condensed milk with 2
(1-ounce) squares unsweetened
chocolate. Cook and stir over low
heat until chocolate melts and
mixture thickens. Stir in 1/3 cup
cherry juice and spoon over cake.

So what do coffee lovers like
best about this latest in-home
coffee brewing trend? A
recent survey commissioned
by Maxwell House Caf6
Collection coffee pods re-
vealed that:
-Eighty-eight percent of
single-serve brewer owners
like that these machines make
one cup of coffee in about 60
seconds. If friends and family
are staying with you this
holiday season, you may want
to consider using a single-serve
brewer to satisfy your
household's coffee needs. The
speed of these coffee brewers
means that you can satisfy
coffee cravings quickly. And
with an assortment of coffee
pods in the pantry, all of your
houseguests can enjoy the
coffee variety or flavor of
their choice each morning.
-Over 90 percent of coffee
drinkers appreciate that the
single-serve brewers don't
require measuring coffee
grinds or cleaning them up
afterward. Ease of use and
speed means more time to
tackle the tasks on your
holiday to-do list whether
it's staying up late to make a
meal or wrapping gifts in the
pre-dawn.iours.
-Si.iy-tive percent of single-
serve brewer owners say that
quality is a consideration when
buying coffee pods. Found in
the coffee aisle of your grocery
store, Maxwell House Caf6
Collection coffee pods are made
with premium 100% Arabica
beans that have been carefully
selected, custom roasted and
finely ground to deliver peak
flavor and aroma. And be-
cause these pods fit into most
single-serve brewers, there's
no hassle with online or mail-
in orders. Simply pick up a
few bags of your favorite
variety while doing your
holiday grocery shopping.

Hurricane tolerant trees make sense for our yards


Garden Life


'C




7


By Donna Torrey
GARDEN WRITER
Last month, I promised to
tell you what I consider the
best home landscaping trees
and shrubs for our hurricane
prone area. Well, here they
are!


I will describe them as
either "columnar," which
means at maturity, they will
be taller than wide and
narrow in form, like a col-
umn; think vertical. These
trees and shrubs are great for
small areas between houses or
next to houses.
The other form is "spread-
ing," which means that these
trees and shrubs tend to
stretch out and take up more
room, and are best placed
further away from structures;
give them room to spread out;
think horizontal.
None of these listed will
ever become too large for you
to handle without an arborist.
Yet, if planted in groups of


three or more, at least 6 feet
apart, will provide as much
canopy as a large tree would.
Mix it up and feel free to use
any of these without fear. As
a bonus, they are all great for
attracting birds and butter-
flies.
If you don't already have
one of the many excellent
books written by South
Floridians, for South Florida
about our native plants, ask
Santa for one! Look these up
for more detailed information
than I have room for here, or
check the Internet.
Simpson's Stopper,
(Myricanthes fragrans), 20
feet, columnar
Ironwood, (Krugiodendron
ferreum), 20 feet, spreading


Crabwood, (Gymnanthes
lucida), 20 feet, columnar
Blolly, (Guapira discolor),
20 feet, spreading
Biscayne Prickly Ash,
(Zanthoxylum coriaceum), 20
feet, columnar
Marlberry, (Ardisia
escallonioides), 15 feet,
columnar
Lignum Vitae, (Guaiacum
sanctum), 15 feet, spreading
Jamaican Caper, (Capparis
cynophallophora), 10 feet,
columnar
Firebush, (Hamelia
patens), 10 feet, spreading
Beautyberry, (Callicarpa
americana), 6 feet, spreading
Wild Coffee, (Psychotria
nervosa), 6 feet, spreading,
dwarf form available, P.


ligustrifolia
Coontie (Zamia pumila), 2
feet, spreading
Well, there you are, what I
would consider to be the best
nominations for small, easy to
maintain landscape plants. If
your yard is full of these, you
will be blessed with beauty
year-round, and a very high
probability that it will prosper
from one hurricane season to
the next.
