3721 NE 25 St. in Lighthouse Point,

Lighthouse Point
fire fighters join
St. Nick to pack

A holiday toy drive, run by the
Lighthouse Point Fire Department,

S Donations of unwrapped, new
toys for infants through 12-year-
olds can be dropped off at the fire
station at 3740 NE 22nd Ave., at
St. Nicholas Episcopal Church at
1111 E. Sample Road or at stores
in the Beacon Light shopping
center.
Toys will be distributed to a
neighborhood in Fort Lauderdale
through the Toys for Tots program,

engineer with the Fire Department.
"We still need more donations.
* About 300 families need toys,"
Sullivan said.
Toys are being collected at St.
Nicholas church through this
Sunday, according to Sue
D'Amore. "So many families don't
have anything. Even a toy will
bring happiness to a child," she
said.


WELCOME ABOARD The Pompano Beach Boat Parade sets sail on Sunday, Dec. 18 at 6:30 p.m. The parade
begins at Lake Santa Barbara and continues to the Hillsboro Bridge in Deerfield beach. The lead is the Grand Floridian,

Well, I'm only here for a short
stop. Things are pretty busy where I

My boss sent me down because
he's looking for a special group of
kids down in South Florida.


"You get down there, Elmer, he

U.S. reaches all time high of 50 percent paper recovery


By Norbert Izworski
ASK MOTHER NATURE
According to the American Forest
and Paper Association, more than half
of the paper consumed in the U.S. is
recycled. Paper recovery has in-
creased steadily from 33.5 percent in
1990 to its present level of 50.3
percent. Each year, Americans
recover approximately 339 pounds of
paper for each man, woman and child
in the US. But they still throw away
enough office and writing paper
annually to build a wall 12-feet high,


stretching from Los Angeles to New
York City.
Domestic demand is being
squeezed by a 50 percent surge in U.S.
exports of recovered paper. Most of
that demand is from Asia, particularly
China.
Recycling Facts
There are many good reasons to
recycle paper. Comparing the manu-
facturing of new paper from raw
wood, fresh paper made from recycled
paper can reduce energy consumption
by up to 75 percent, requires 50


percent less water for processing,
and causes 75 to 95 percent less
air pollution. Recycling a ton of
paper saves 4,100-kilowatt hours
of energy, 600 pounds of air
pollutants, 3,700 pounds of
lumber, 24,000 gallons of water,
463 gallons of oil, and 306 cubic
yards of landfill space.
Paper Making Process
Paper is made from cellulose
fibers that are extracted from

City plans public


discussions for beach


development ideas


Much discussion is going on about the future of the beach area and
the Atlantic Boulevard corridor.
Pompano Beach is offering every resident and business owner an-
other chance to participate in the future plans of these areas.
SWe urge everyone to get involved.
Here is the information.
The Pompano Beach City Commission authorized the development
of a Community Redevelopment Plan to include the beach area of
Pompano Beach. The purpose of this effort is to further the economic
development opportunities for the areas along the Atlantic Boulevard
corridor from NE 18 Avenue to the beach and adjacent areas along A1A.
The city is updating the Community Redevelopment Plan to reflect
current needs and conditions and to identify future opportunities for
economic development.
The public input process will take the form of Charrettes, one which
was held Thursday, Nov.17, 2005
And one to be held Saturday, Dec. 17 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Participants in the Charrette will include community leaders, city
officials, business and civic groups and city residents.
The purpose of the Charrettes is to take public input for incorpora-
tion into a revised East CRA Community Development Plan.


Pelican takes a twist

in this issue


Due to printer complications, The Pompano Pelican had to change some
pagination for this issue. We expect to return to the normal format next week.
Thank you.


What's your


opinion?

Have a Merry, Happy...

Whatever Floats Your Boat!


By Barry "Doc" Dockswell
PELICAN COLUMNIST

Until about twenty years ago, I used to say "Happy Holidays" to every-
one at this time of year. Everyone that is, except family members since we
are all Jewish, we have always said "Happy Hanukah"
to one another.
Then, some 20 years ago, a Christian friend of mine
said "Happy Hanukah" to me. I reflexively said
"Happy Holidays" to him, but something didn't feel
right. After I had time to think about what had hap-
pened, something shifted inside me. When my Chris-
tian friend said "Happy Hanukah" to me, he was
showing recognition and respect for who and what I
am. I appreciated that, and realized that in the future I The Dockswell
wanted to show the same recognition and respect for Dispatch
my Christian friends.
Since then, I have tried to be quicker on my feet at
this time of year. I've tried to say "Merry Christmas" to people who I know
are Christian and "Happy Hanukah" to people who I know are Jewish. I say
"Happy Holidays" to people of other faiths and to people I'm not sure about,
and, yes, when my brain won't work quickly enough for me to figure out
what I really know about the religion of the people I'm addressing.
Again, when people say "Happy Hanukah" to me, I feel valued and
respected. When they say "Happy Holidays" to me, I feel warm -and in-
cluded. How do I feel when people say "Merry Christmas" to me? I'ni
certainly not offended. I recognize that most Americans are Christian and
that when they wish me a Merry Christmas, they are just greeting me
warmly in their customary way. I smile and give them a wholehearted
"Melry Christpas" in return.

'Can DO!" attitude is

missing in Pompano

Beach, says Carlson


By Scott Milinski
PELICAN WRITER
"This area was good until the mid
1980s when it started to decline,"
said Bill Carlson, owner of Harbor
Village Cleaners on 2667 East
Atlantic Blvd. I first met Bill at the
Nov. 17 Community Redevelopment
Agency, or CRA, Charrette meeting
seeking public input on development
issues. His business is located two
blocks west of the drawbridge in
what is referred to as the Atlantic
Boulevard Corridor, and he has
opinions on what needs to be done.
Thirty-eight years ago Carlson's
father started Harbor Village Clean-
ers. "My father was a World War Il
vet in Normandy and Iwo Jima. He
always taught me a "can do" atti-
tude. Here, it is more like "can't
do." He would be horrified today by
how property owners are controlled
by the city and resident activists.
With the activists in control it's the
tail wagging the dog. It's like they
want to live in the 1950s. "


Carlson blames residents for part
of the decline of the beach. Over
30,000 cars drive by his business
every day. "To many residents our
business area is a "drive by" as they
go to Federal Highway, and even out
of town, to shop, or eat."
He believes that residents
aggrevate traffic problems when
they drive to businesses outside their
own neighborhood. CRA studies:
point out that residents do not spend
enough money in the area to support
local business.
Carlson refers to the local activ-
ists who always complain as "Nay
Sayers." He would like to see the
city provide small buses for resi-
dents to use to travel to local busi-
nesses such as his. In his opinion
all it takes is a "can do" attitude to
solve problems rather than just
saying 'no' to development.
Like many business people,
Carlson would like to see develop-
ment similar to that along Federal

Tiny, but mighty, best
describes Mary Ann Toms,
motivated president of the
Woman's Club of Pompano
Beach. At a recent board
meeting in their club house at
314 N.E. 2nd Street, Toms
eagerly describes the club.
"We are one of the oldest
service clubs in the city.
Although we are social, we do
much more than play cards,
lunch and have fashion
shows. We have a very
dedicated group of women
who work hard to meet some
of the needs of our commu-
nity."
This year alone, this group
has donated over 100 comfort
pillows, hand made by
members, to Fort Lauderdale
Hospice for breast cancer
patients. They have assembled
and donated over 100 boxes
of toiletries and necessities to
Women in Distress. Club
Vice President, Clarice Reed
says, "Many of these women

to save their lives and they
start a new life with nothing.
Our boxes are filled with the
basic items they will need."
On Veteran's Day, Mary
Ann Toms, Anna Motzner,
Anna Natella, Rita Kryza and
husband honored local
veterans at the ceremony held
at Post 142, American Legion
Hall. The Elks' Club, dam-
aged by Wilma, could not
host the event. The Woman's
Club donated their usual red,
white and blue decorated
cupcakes to the event.
As one of the sponsors of
this year's Yuletide Parade,


the Club made a $200 dona-
tion. In addition, members
were on hand to help with
crowd control at Santa's
house. "We greeted the
children, handed out goody -
bags and stamped each child's
hand making the child eligible
for one photo with Santa,"
Toms explains.
Throughout the year, the
club donates books to the

Library and wearable, used
clothing to Wpmen in Dis-

due to aging and the fact that
younger women are often

Lauderdale-

by-the-Sea

considers

CRA for

business

district
By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
Other than parking prob-
lems in Lauderdale-by-the-
Sea, most residents have few
complaints.
But town leaders, looking
to the future, are concerned
that certain problems could
crop up unless they get
attention soon.
David Nixon has taken the
job of heading up a task force
" to study how a CRA, or
Community Redevelopment
Agency, could enhance the
small community of 7,500
residents.
Nixon will chair the CRA,
and last Tuesday, the town
commission approved sending
out letters of proposals to
consulting companies special-
izing in urban planning and
development.
The area slated for rede-
velopment is the town's
business district, from the

beach and the areas between
AIA and El Mar Drive from
Pine to Palm Avenues.

Kwanzaa celebration set for Pompano Library


By Judy Vik
SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN

The community is invited
to a holiday celebration of
African-American heritage
through Kwanzaa.
The event is scheduled
from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday,
Dec. 17, in the auditorium at
the Pompano Beach Library at
Atlantic Boulevard and
Northeast 13 Avenue.
The special guest will be
Madafo Lloyd Wilson of
Hollywood, a storyteller and
musician. He will tell African
folk tales and play musical
instruments from Africa. One
instrument, which he calls a
finger piano, provides melodi-


ous, warm tones sounding like
a xylophone, according to
Julia Spann, library youth
services supervisor and
program coordinator.
Children will be invited to
join in by playing bongo
drums, maracas and other
percussion-type instruments.
In his performance,
Madafo combines chants,
demonstration, characteriza-
tion and audience participa-
tion.
Spann explained that
Kwanzaa uses the Swahili
language to explain seven
principles of family and
community unity. One is Nia,
or a sense of purpose in life.
Another is Imani or faith,

LBTS group petitions town to enforce strict height limitations

Voters could make final decision this March, but may have to choose between two options


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF

Height limits is a hot
topic in most coastal towns,

but Lauderdale-by-the-Sea
officials feel they got it right
years ago when they man-
dated that building heights be

That worked until recently.

move forward, the town
must conduct a "Needs
Assessment" study and a
development plan.
If town leaders approve
those studies, the next step
requires an approval by
Broward County Commis-
sioners.
"It's a wonderful
opportunity," says Nixon.
'But when you look around
at the infrastructure of
Lauderdale-by-the-Sea,
there are a couple of things
that jump into your mind.
We also have no parking
whatsoever for people who
want to use our shops,
restaurants and other
businesses. We also need a


Prior to annexation, those
residents lived under a
Broward County height limit
of 15 stories. That area
included several high rises.
Recently, a group of
citizens called the Citizens'


program to update our
infrastructure."
Nixon's team for the
CRA includes Michael
Arker, Jack Cooney, and
Dick Clark.
Proposals from consult-
ants are due Jan. 20. The
town has budgeted $50,000
for the two studies.
If the county approves the
study, funding for develop-
ment will involve loans from
the county's capital improve-
ment fund as well as grants.
"We will be holding a
series of meetings with the
public for their feedback.
The key is to maintain our
lovely seaside ambiance that
we have now, but upgrade
the buildings and other
infrastructure within that
geographic boundaries," said
Nixon.


Initiative Committee, or CIC,
petitioned the town to adopt a
charter change that could,
some think, lead the town to
court.
The petition demands that
the established 44-foot height
limit extend to the annexed
community for future devel-
opment..
Mayor Oliver Parker
didn't hesitate about possible
consequences if the petition
were approved.
"The town would be
bankrupt," said Parker. "If
there were a way we could
have 44 feet for all construc-
tion, I would go for it. I am
the original author of the
charter amendment that
created the 44-foot limit."
With annexation, not only
did the town take within its
limits several 15-story condo-
miniums, but it also had on its
hands, several undeveloped
properties.
The area in question is the
land east of AIA and north of
Pine Avenue. Parker says
developers, planning to build
up to 15 stories, could sue the
town if they were suddenly
limited to four stories. If they
won, town residents could be

Recycle

Continued from page 1
has had with "many" condo-
minium owners.
Waste Management, the
city's contracted hauler, wants
to recycle as well, but expects
to be paid for it, according to
a recent memo from Hargett
to commissioners.
So after years of negotiat-
ing, Pompano Beach commis-
sioners stepped away from the
stalemate and delivered a
palatable plan to residents
living in condominiums to
engage them in recycling.
On Tuesday, commission-
ers dropped the item that
would have mandated a full
recycling program to include
newspapers, plastic, glass and
other "rigid" items. That
would have cost condo-
minium owners a minimum of
$1.25 per month per unit.
And for the first time in
years, they reached a consen-
sus to draft an alternative
plan.
Condo owners have raised
complaints about space for
recycling bins, additional
expenses related to transport-
ing items to the bins and loss
of revenue from an ongoing
newspaper-recycling program
for which they are compen-
sated.
A new plan would give
Them more control.
"It's exactly what I asked
for," said Commissioner
George Brummer, who
represents thousands of
condominium owners in Palm
Aire. "You can't force people
to recycle. I've said that all
along. With this ordinance,
residents are mandated to
provide facilities for recycling
newspapers. It's a step. We
can phase in more later."
While the ordinance to
mandate recycling will come
before the commission in
January, there was consensus
that this latest plan would
appease most condo owners.
The new ordinance is
expected to require condo
residents to contract with a
"licensed hauler" for newspa-
per recycling. The city will
provide large bins at public
facilities like fire stations or
civic centers for residents who
voluntarily recycle "rigid"
items with no additional
S expense.
Commissioner Lamar
Fisher said he had spent
weeks on researching options
for condo owners. Fisher put
another option on the table
that could push forward
residents who want to add
"rigid" recyclable items to the
newspapers.
According to Fisher,
Southern Waste Systems, a
licensed hauler for the city,
offered to provide condomini-


ums a 96-gallon "toter" for
items like plastic, glass and
aluminum. Southern would
charge $25 per month to
collect the items.
"By allowing residents to
earn money from newspapers,
this would offset the $25
monthly fee. It gives condo
owners full control," said
Fisher.
The resolution on the on-
going efforts to make recy-
cling a city-wide project
brought clear relief to the
dais.
"These fine tuning points
of recycling have been

difficult," said Mayor John
Rayson. "But it allows us to
move forward."
"And it doesn't put a
strong arm on condo owners
who don't want to recycle
rigid materials," said Vice
Mayor Susan Foster.
Single family homeowners
have been required to recycle
for four years. While the rate
of recycling hovers at about
10 percent for this group, they
are required to pay $1.98
monthly for recycling services
from Waste Management.

A gift idea that promises a whole new beginning!

Fitness Together promotes individual success in a private suite for one client, one trainer, one goal


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
Since getting fit has
become an international
obsession, it is hard to track
the countless businesses that
have surfaced to help the
'unfit' succeed in improving
their health and appearance.
Having one's own coach
in the privacy of one's own
fitness studio sounds like an
indulgence most people can
not consider. But Fitness
Together, the world's largest
personal training franchise
organization, makes these
conditions an affordable
reality. Founded by Rick
Sikorski in Scottsdale,
Arizona in 1983, there are
currently 310 functioning
locations nationally with
plans for 1,400 more to come.
In July of this year, Wendy
Tarlow opened a Fitness
Together studio at 1759 E.
Commercial Blvd. in Fort
Lauderdale. With three
private, fully equipped
workout rooms and dedicated
certified trainers, Tarlow and
her associate, Patricia
Felizzola will help men and
women from 13 to 92 attain
their health and appearance
goals.
Felizzola adds, "We do not
charge membership fees.
There are no long term, lock
in contracts involved here.
We sell weekly or monthly
session packages. The first
session is free because we
want to introduce a potential
client to our equipment and
our approach."
Tarlow elaborates. "Be-
cause we have eliminated the
crowded gym atmosphere, the
wait for equipment, and most
of the excuses people have,
our clients become really
committed."
Dr. Jean Gordon, an ER
physician, is just one case in
point. "Of course I know the
value of being fit. But I have a
very busy and a very tight
schedule. Like most people, it
was very easy to skip going to
the health club on a busy day.
Here with an appointment and
no waiting, I've been able to
get back and stay in shape.
I've been working one on one
with trainers at Fitness
Together for the past 3 1/2
months and I'm feeling
wonderful. I've worked with

three different trainers and
each one was professional
and concerned."
Pleased to hear praise
from a client, Tarlow contin-
ues. "We design a program
for each client, but first we
do a full fitness evaluation,
following the set medical
questionnaires and guidelines
in ACSM, or American
College of Sports Medicine,
for testing and prescription. If
there is a medical history that
limits a client's use of certain
equipment or exercise, we
work with that client's doctor
to create a safe exercise
environment."
Certified personal trainers
are qualified through tests
and practical hands-on
experience to do client
assessments before planning
a program. An assessment
includes testing to determine
resting heart rate and blood
pressure, body composition
measurements (relationship
between lean muscle mass
and fat mass), cardio respira-
tory fitness for the healthy
individual, muscular strength,
endurance and flexibility."
Nick Montgomery says
there's no comparison
between a typical exercise


club or gym and the experi-
ence at Fitness Together.
"I've been working out for
several years," Montgomery
says, "at one point I actually
injured myself doing it on my
own. The one-on-one ap-
proach at Fitness is helping
me to achieve my goals and
even live a better lifestyle. My
work out plan is guided by
experts to achieve better
coordination, definition,


balance, everything. I'm
planning to travel to Brazil
and Argentina this year and I
want to be in good shape. I
will be. I go to Fitness three
times a week. Having a
personal trainer is much more
motivating than doing it on
your own. I feel I am getting

more than my money's worth.
I've even referred a number
of friends. "
Don Debellis has been


working out at Fitness six
days a week for five months.
"I've lost 25 pounds, lowered
my cholesterol and improved
my body definition," he says,
beaming. "The reason I've
been successful is having and
keeping that appointment
with a qualified coach."

Fresh paper requires the
cutting and pulping of vast


numbers of trees. Even fast

currency, are made with the
addition of cotton fibers
collected from rags.
The raw materials are
broken down to release the
fibers, and then mixed with
water to make paper pulp, a
porridge-like slurry. The pulp
is poured onto the papermak-
ing machine, which creates a
continuous sheet. Water is
extracted from the pulp slurry,
and as the water content falls,
the paper fibers bond to-
gether, allowing the new sheet
to support its own weight as it
is lifted from the production
conveyor. The new sheet is
dried over a series of heated
drums, and then wound onto a
large spool. These reels of
fresh paper are then cut into
the standard sheets or sent
directly to large users, such as
newspaper printers.


Primary types of paper
that can be recycled
Currently, the categories
of paper that can be recycled
are white office paper,
newspaper, magazines,
telephone books, and pam-
phlets. Cardboard and mixed
or colored paper are also
recyclable items. Some items
such as junk mail and enve-
lopes can be awkward to
recycle, and the availability of
recycling facilities that can
handle them varies around the
country.
What about the ink?
Sometimes the ink is not
removed from the paper when
it is reprocessed. The ink is
dispersed into the pulp slurry,
discoloring it slightly, which
is why recycled paper can
have a grayish tinge.
Sometimes the pulp slurry


is bleached. Hydrogen
peroxide and chlorine are

Seasonal galas and parties capture this social scene


By Sandy Johnson
SOCIAL MATTERS

Celebrations are every-
where as many people around
town get together with friends
to enjoy holiday cheer. We
are going to need a vacation
when this is all over.

Attended the
Winterfest Black
Tie Ball and was
absolutely wowed by the
decor in keeping with the
theme of the
parade "Jewel
of the Nile."
As the guests .
entered the
affair, held at
the Seminole
Hard Rock
Casino, they 0
each had their .
picture taken
with a
marvelous
backdrop of
King Tut in
all his regalia. Sandy Johnson
and Lee Waldo
Onward to a
huge room
with the silent auction,
allowing one to mingle and
purchase one of the innumer-
able items offered.
As we were called for
dinner, I was astonished by
how beautifully the room was
decorated. Even the table-
cloths held true to the theme
with sparkly glitter and
beaded designs hand sewn.
J.R. Dunn Jeweler's owners,
Jim and Anne Marie Dunn
* were the Queen and Pharaoh
for this evening to honor them
for their support of so many
events taking place in the
community and for their four-
year commitment to Winter-
fest as major sponsors.
The Bobby Rodriquez 20-
piece orchestra kept us
dancing away to the wee
hours of the morning. A
special performance of Steve
Martin's Saturday Night Live
skit "King Tut" had everyone
in stitches. The orchestra
even wore "King Tut" outfits.
There was a special perfor-
mance of Legends in Con-
cert, featuring the Blues
Brothers and Whitney
Houston! Remember last
week we published the
picture of the beautifully
designed King Tut evening
bag from J.R. Dunn? Well,
they auctioned it off at the
live auction and it went for
well over $4,000. Naturally

Kathryn Elios attend the Ameri/Fi-
nancial Christmas Party at the Light-

we had to finish off the
evening by paying a brief visit
to the casino where we made
a generous donation to the
Seminole Indian Tribe!
Be sure and plan to watch
the Winterfest Parade on
Saturday night where you will
see the imagination run wild
with the "Jewel of the Nile"
theme. Featured will be
American Idol judge Randy
Jackson as grand marshal and
more than 100 fabulously
decorated boats. From mega
yachts that appear to almost
be Broadway productions on
the water, to family boats with
simpler themes. This is the
world's most watched boat
parade as it winds its way on
a 10-mile route up the Intrac-
oastal Waterway to Lake
Santa Barbara.

he next night,
Sunday, will be
our own Pompano
Beach Boat Parade. This is
the oldest of the water parades
and a holiday tradition for
families in our community.
Due to all the hurricane
commotion, the committee
decided this year to just let
everyone decorate as they
would like and not worry
about a specific theme.
Should be interesting to see
minds at work, and I suspect
we will see many of the Jewel
of the Nile boats joining up
with us on Sunday. Another


fun family event not to be
missed.

Lighthouse Point
held its annual
Lighthouse-A-
Glow at McDonough Park
last week. Sadly, the weather
played havoc with the event
but before the deluge from
the heavens shut things down,
Mayor Fred Schorr did
manage to throw the switch
and light the gleaming city
holiday tree. Santa held court
with the children and listened
to many whispered, oh so
serious, requests from the
little ones.
Piles of snow were there
for the kids to slide in and
have the joy of making.
snowballs to throw around.
Moms and dads on the
outside of the ring were the
targets of many of these
snowy orbs. The Library
held its annual bakesale,
complete with many mouth-
watering goodies guaranteed
to add a few pounds to your
body in a most delicious way.
Synchronized dancing by the
red, holiday clad Eaglettes
from Atlantic High School
was a high point of the
evening. There were snow
flakes in the air, and this city
officially opened for the
holidays.

The Lighthouse
Point Woman's


Lighthouse Point Mayor Fred Schorr and wife, Laraine, give Santa a few hints for
the holiday.


Club had its De-
cember meeting with most of
the members looking very
festive in their holiday attire.
After a traditional holiday feast
with turkey and all the trim-
mings, the real fun began. Each
table was assigned a verse from
the Twelve Days of Christmas
and had to act out their lines in
a suitable manner. We were
"the seven swans a swimming"
and must we tell you that we
definitely were Oscar material
after our performance. Next
Suzi Q, the DJ, offered to teach
some fancy dance steps and
strongly requested some help
on the dance floor. Taryn
Palo, Wanda Kostyshyn,
Marian Chafitz and Anna
Nordmann did a mean Electric
Slide and a show stopping
Macarena. The ladies donated
tables full of new toys for the
Broward Children's Center.
The next day Pati Ryder met
with the counselors at the
facility to match children for
appropriate gifts and then she
and a group of ladies wrapped
them all. Yes, Virginia, there is
a Santa Claus.

attended the Christ
mas party for the
staff and clients of
Broward House in one of the
most delightful homes that we
have been in. Susan and Bill
Tell were the hosts in their
home decorated for the holi-


days. The stairway was
lined with a fabulous
collection of teddy bears
sporting seasonal colors,
making us want to just
cuddle up amongst them and
forget all our cares. Susan
grew up in this Victorian
Park home and returned later
to live there. She is the
CEO/Director of Hospice
Care and helps with Bro-
ward House which is a
residential facility for HIV/
AIDS patients established in
1988. Instead of gifts, the
management team pooled
their money and donated
$1,200. to Broward House.

unday Mayor
Schorr and wife
Laraine held the
annual Lighthouse Point
Employees Christmas party
at their home. Welcome to
Dawn Ranch who has
joined-the city as assistant to
Art Graham in Public
Works. Had a nice talk with
Fire Fighter Pat Jones and
his wife as we stood outside
in weather that was so
perfect. Library Director.
Doreen Gauthier was there
decked out in a smashing
Christmas shirt. Carol
Landau, city clerk, joined
the party.

Happy Holidays all!

a r~
I '`'*IL,-C.

yl

cat that came in from a grim
life in the parking lot to
reside with us for the past
eight years. Sadly, on
Dec.7, he passed away.
When he first came, he
was completely feral. He
was un-neutered and quite
wild. However, gradually,
with the enticement of
regular meals, and lots of
encouragement, he came
closer and closer to a new
life off of the streets,
literally.
Once he trusted us we
arranged for him to be
neutered and over the
years, he became one of us,
a member of our staff. He
had the best jobs: sleeping,
eating, ratting and public
relations.
He was the official
greeter, and was especially
fond of children, little girls
in particular. He would
hear their high voices and
come out from wherever he
was snoozing to say hello,
rub up against them and
just plain flirt! The Garden
Gate was the only home he
had ever known, and he
never left.
Sometimes, we felt that
people liked him more than
us, as they would come in
just to see him. "Where's
the cat," or "Where's
Silver?" was as common as
"Where's the milkweed?"
He was always finding the
most unlikely places to
sleep and was a constant
amusement to us. He loved
baskets and one of our
favorites was when he tried
to squeeze his rather ample
butt into a wooden straw-
berry basket on the counter,
.which he accomplished
with much finagling.
Silver had a rather aloof
way about him; when he
had had enough petting,
(and only on the head,
mind you,) he would let
you know about it with a
swat. But we always knew
that it hid a heart of gold.
He just wasn't used to
being loved so much.
The truth is, we needed
him as much as he needed
us. Silver Buttonwood was
special because he showed
us all that really and truly,
everything grows with
love. We'll miss you,
Silver Buttonwood.

Parents steamed that preschool's AC is on the blink


By Judy Vik
SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN
A contingent of parents
and children from the Pom-
pano Beach Preschool showed
up at the Pompano Beach city
commission meeting this
week to see what can be done
to fix the school's air-condi-
tioning system.
The city-run school, at
1401 NE 4 St., has been
without a working air-
conditioner for about two
months, according to Gina
Doyle, one of two parents
who addressed commission-
ers. Ten mothers and 15
children attended the meeting.
The city leases the school
from the Broward County


School Board.
"It's been an ongoing
problem for years," Doyle
said. "The school board
replaced the system's chiller
system, and now the air
handler doesn't work. The
city and school board go
back and forth as to who is
responsible. We just want it
to be done."
Doyle said she has kept
her five-year-old son home
from school on some days
when the facility was too hot
to be comfortable. On recent
days, it has been cold.
Doyle said she is opti-
mistic that something will
be done now. She said
Commissioner Kay McGinn


asked if they could fix the
system now and bill the
School Board later.
Commissioner Lamar
Fisher said the city and the
school board had been going
back and forth on whether
the city would lease the
building where the pre-
school is located or gain title
to the building. "If we
owned the building, we
would make the improve-
ments. If we leased, it would
be the responsibility of the
school board to handle
maintenance and improve-
ments. We are leasing from
the school board," Fisher
said.
Fisher has been in con-


tact with school board
member Dr. Bob Parks to try
to resolve the situation. He
said the school board re-
placed the air-conditioning
chillers, but now the air
handlers are defunct. He
said he is going back to
Parks to ask the school
board to replace the han-
dlers.
"We have taken bids for
the air handlers and are
pursuing window units,"
Fisher said. Fisher said the
process will take time since
the city commission will
have to approve the bid.
Another possibility
would be moving the pre-
school to the Emma Lou


Olson Civic Center, but that
would displace existing
programs.
"The good news is that
the school will soon be on
winter break. We're desper-
ately trying to resolve this
and need to do what we can
to provide cool air or warm
air when it's cold," Fisher
said. "It's a huge priority to
work through the bureau-
cracy and get this resolved."
He estimated the cost of
the handlers at $50,000-
$60,000.
The director of the school
could not be reached for
comment at press time.

Continued from page 2

I think that the purpose
of a holiday salutation is
similar to the purpose of all
speech that is, to make
the most meaningful
connection possible with
one or more other human
beings.
If two Christians find
themselves saying "Happy
Holidays" to one another
when they really want to
say "Merry Christmas" to
one another, I can under-
stand their frustration with
where the notion of politi-
cal correctness has led
them.
I applaud them for
deciding to give each other
a heartfelt "Merry Christ-


If the store's custom-
ers may be of any faith
or no faith, why pressure
the owners to favor
some customers and
snub others?

mas" and feel good about
their mutual connection.
What I don't understand is
why this stuff sometimes gets
militant. Why would anyone
want to force department
stores to say "Merry Christ-
mas" to all their customers,
and to boycott the stores
which are only trying to be
all-inclusive by saying
"Happy Holidays"?
If a store is a Christian
book store, or a store which
only sells Christmas trees and
ornaments, then, of course,


the owners would want to
greet their customers with
"Merry Christmas."
But, if the store's custom-
ers may be of any faith or no
faith, why pressure the
owners to favor some
customers and snub others?
It's all about tailoring
one's words to the target
audience attempting to
extend a warm greeting to
everyone who is being
addressed.
To me, that certainly
feels like the holiday spirit;
and, while I'm on the
subject, may I wish you a
very happy, healthy...New
Year!

Santa

Continued from page 1

for me and Dancer [That's
my reindeer].


So, this White person
makes it extremely clear that
she wants a visit. Hey, not too
many folks have that kind of
pull.
So he's coming, and wants


to meet all the kids-kids of all
ages. He's just a kid himself,
but you don't want to know
how old he is!
So let's make it a real


party. Meet Santa on Dec. 17
at Commercial and the beach
from noon to 3 p.m.
Oh yeah. Now that Santa
got into the picture, all kinds
of big wigs are going to show
up. I talked to Mayor Oliver
Parker. He and his troupe of
city commissioners suddenly
think they're the Morman
Tabernacle Choir. You got it.
They formed a Glee Club and
plan to sing Christmas Carols
and other holiday jingles at
the party.
That's going to be a stitch!
Maybe the big draw is the
combination of this sweet
lady, Marie White and Santa.
Who knows? Those Kiwanis
Club members are on the list
of participants. Heard they
would be giving out toys and
stuff.
Sal's Towing is supplying
the Antique Fire Truck so the
kids can climb aboard for a
little fun.
Walgreen's got in the act


by offering free prints of the
kids on Santa's lap. That way
everybody can have a nice
keepsake.
Well, those nice folks in
Lauderdale-by-the-Sea are all
pulling together to make sure
the kiddies get the most out of
this holiday, and we're all
proud of them. Folks like
Lord's Realty, Kwik Pik, By-
the-Sea Laundramat, Athena
and Aruba Restaurants and
Jan's Cookies really know
how to throw a party.
So you better watch out so
you don't miss Santa's
Coming to Town, or you-
know-who will find out. Yeah,
I'm a tattletale, myself.
And to all a good night!

Highway. He feels that we
have plenty of room for
growth, but lack the vision to
what is needed to support the
area. "We need some major
players to come in like Pier I
Imports, nice restaurants,
coffee shops, and antique and
art shops. It's pretty sad when
you look at all that is being
done in Fort Lauderdale while
Pompano is building Safe
Guard Storage properties on
Federal Highway. Fort
Lauderdale should be our
motto."
Carlson says that develop-
ers have come to him offering
less than he paid for his
property 20 years ago warning
him that the city may take his
property by eminent domain.
"I plan on staying. I just
bought a new dry cleaning
machine which shows how
committed I am to the area."
He meets with other
business owners in Atlantic
Point who want to see the area
developed, "But we don't
know what we can do. The
city needs to get started and
lets us know."
Carlson points to
Houston's Restaurant as an
example of "can do" prob-
lem solving. He says that
the "Nay Sayers" were
against putting a Houston's


on our street. They com-
plained that it would cause
traffic jams and parking was
inadequate. He and other
business people in Atlantic
Point promoted Houston's,
"I finally persuaded the city
that there would be plenty of
available parking if they
changed from parallel
parking to slanted parking on
NE First Street. In doing so,
we gained 50 additional


parking spaces. If you have a
problem, find a solution."
Carlson and other Atlantic
Point businesses complain
about the city's parking area
in front of his business, "The
city is not creating parking
spaces for us. They have
actually taken them away over
the years." He would like to
see condo and parking
garages mixed into Atlantic
Point to support the area's


businesses. Atlantic Point is
currently zoned commercial
with a ten story height limita-
tion. In order for his concept
to be adopted, zoning changes
will be necessary, and activ-
ists will likely fight any ten-
story building development in
that area.
Carlson says that business
owners feel left out of the
consensus building process.
He thinks its time to make


decisions and implement
ideas. In his opinion, the city
needs to hire a full time CRA
director who is experienced in
building consensus and
implementing projects. "I am
not a rich guy; I am just trying
to make some money. I had
two stores empty for a year;
you never get that money
back. We are the last corridor
to be developed and this is the
opportunity to be the best."

Paper
Continued from page 10
commonly used bleaches,
though hydrogen peroxide is
the more acceptable choice
because it breaks down into
harmless water and oxygen
after use. Chlorine can com-
bine with organic matter under
certain conditions to produce
toxic pollutants, including
dioxins.
Although the de-inking
process uses water and chemi-
cals, it is less harmful to the
environment than the making
paper from raw materials.
If you buy paper in bulk for
an office or business, look for a
supplier who can tell you the
percentage of recycled fiber
content, and whether it was
bleached using chlorine or
hydrogen peroxide. Of course,
it is best to avoid chlorine if
possible.
What about milk and
juice cartons?
Cartons are not made from
paper alone, but are comprised
of about 75 percent paper, 20
percent polyethylene plastic,
and 5 percent aluminum foil.
As they are a combination of
materials, they cannot be
recycled along with ordinary
paper. They can be repro-
cessed into other items,
incinerated to produce energy,
or used as landfill.
Yellow Pages
The dye in these directories
makes them unsuitable for
normal recycling.
Yellow pages are treated
differently than other types of
paper. Covers and glue are
removed, pages are shredded
and used in many imaginative
ways such as shopping bags,
animal bedding, cardboard, and
insulation for homes.
Cardboard
Cardboard packaging is
everywhere. It can take up
significant volume in the
average household's rubbish.
It is made of cellulose fibers,


generally from wood pulp,
which can be used again if
recycled.
Try to avoid buying items
that contain large amounts of
packaging. Some moving
companies will supply card-
board boxes, which they then
take back for reuse. Cardboard
also makes excellent compost.
Scrunch it up and put it in your
compost bin right along with
kitchen and garden waste. It
also makes excellent mulch for
vegetable beds.
Environmental Issues
Recycling paper and paper
products results in countless
benefits to the environment. In
addition to the energy saved,
pollution dramatically reduced
and natural resources con-
served, the EPA, or Environ-
mental Protection Agency,
believes that recycling paper
reduces CO2 emissions. If the
U.S. reaches recycling goals,
CO2 emissions will be
reduced by 13.2 mm tons.
This would be the equivalent
of removing eight million cars
from U.S. roadways. Their
theory is that the volume of


paper recycled, taken as a
whole, allows U.S. forests to
grow somewhat older and they
would therefore capture more
carbon and release more
oxygen. One tree can filter up
to 60 pounds of pollutants from
the air each year.
What can I do?
For starters, try not to use as
much paper in the first place.
Use both sides of a sheet of
paper. Look to see if the paper
you are about to throw away
can be used as scrap paper for
phone messages or a shopping
list. Whenever possible, buy
recycled paper products.
Contact the sender to avoid
receiving unsolicited mail. If
you are a single-family resi-
dent, make sure you recycle
your newspaper, magazines
and phone books. Junk mail,
milk cartons and heavy card-
board can be taken to the city's
two drop-off sites.
On average Americans
recycle 50 percent of paper
products, so there is an oppor-
tunity to nearly double the
amount of paper currently
recycled. If all of the morning

Local churches prepare for Christmas services


By Judy Vik
SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN
The pastor of a Presbyte-
rian church in Pompano
Beach says he was kind of
stunned" to hear the news that
some megachurches in the
area and around the country
are canceling church services
on Christmas Day.


The holiday falls on a
Sunday this year, and some
church leaders are encourag-
ing their members to stay
home that day with their
families.
"It seems to me families
should be together in worship
in church," said Dr. John
Vaughn, pastor of Cypress
Presbyterian Church. He said


that's what Christmas Day is
all about. "I wouldn't cancel
if five people or three people
showed up," he said.
At Cypress Creek, the
celebration of the birth of
Jesus Christ starts this Sunday
with a children's pageant
during the 11 a.m. service.
On Christmas Eve, a


candlelight service and Holy
Communion are set for 7:30
p.m. with folk harpist Daniel
Rojas playing along with the
organist. A service in Spanish
will be at 11:30 p.m. On
Christmas Day lessons and
carols are scheduled for 11
a.m.
Here's a sampling of how


some other area churches are
observing the holiday:
First United Methodist
Church, 210 NE Third St.,
Pompano Beach: Christmas
Eve: 5 p.m. children's and
family service in the chapel;

Height
Continued from page 6

paying for developers' loss
on income and attorney fees.
"The [owners of] have the
legal right to build [to that
height]," he said.
And the issue is unique
to Florida.
In 1995, Bert J. Harris, a
Florida legislator, created a
billed that became law in
Florida, commonly referred
to as the Bert J. Harris Act.
This law allows developers
to the right to sue munici-
palities if the government
"inordinately burdens" or
"restricts" the landowner.
Zoning that restricts the
construction of a building
from 15 stories to 44 feet
could be construed as a
"restriction."
Parker thinks so. But not
everyone agrees.
"I talked to one person on
the CIC who had an idea
that the Bert J. Harris Act


wouldn't apply if the restric-
tion had been initiated by a
group of citizens," Parker
said.
Meanwhile the town has
sent a letter to the state
attorney's office to verify
that possibility.
Now Parker, also an
attorney, is waiting to see it
in writing.
Regardless of what the
letter asserts, the CIC has
the right to call for its own
charter change.
By law, when a group of
citizens gets a petition
signed by 10 percent of the
voters, the local government
has no choice but to put the
referendum on a ballot for
the entire municipality to
decide.
When will the people
vote?
Parker says the petition
must be placed on the ballot
at the earliest general
election. He adds that will
happen in November.


Meanwhile, the town is has
come up with its own
version of the charter
amendment in time to place
it on the March ballot.
The town's version,
Parker believes, will at the
least, keep the town out of
the courts.
Local lawmakers want to
unify the 44-foot height
throughout the town with the
exception of that portion of
land north of Pine Avenue
and east of AIA. This
charter amendment would,
for the first time, allow the
town to grant height vari-
ances, but only to property
owners in that specified area
where 15 stories are already
in place.
"For the rest of the town,
no one could build over 44
feet," says Parker.
Commissioner Ed
Kennedy is bothered by the
CIC petition and supports


the town's alternative
version that would exclude
that specific area from the
established 44-foot limit.
"Those people have a
vested right to build to the
allocated 15 stories. We
can't take away their prop-
erty rights," said Kennedy.
"But we will still have a lot
of control over what they
build."
John Thompson, retired
executive from NATO,
North Atlantic Treaty
Organization and a resident
of the town is a director of
CIC, which is also a PAC,
political action group, sees
something else.
Thompson says he
understands the Bert J.
Harris issue, but a so-called
"Safety Clause" has been
added to the CIC petition
that would, in his opinion,
make the 44-foot height null
and void if a property owner


sued the city under the
Harris Act.
And Thompson isn't
happy that that town wants
to wait until November
before the CIC's version is
up for a vote.
Thompson wants the CIC
petition to go to the voters
this March, along with the
town's charter amendment.
And he thinks it will once
the Supervisor of Elections
verifies the petition's
signatures.
That would call for the
voters to decide between a
charter amendment written
by the town that would
allow height variances for a
small portion of land on the
beach while the rest of the
town development would be
limited to 44 feet. The
second option, written by
the CIC, would limit all
development to height limits
of 44 feet.

Continuedfrom page 8

Tarlow nods. "That's true.
Our goal is to help clients
achieve their goals by promot-
ing and encouraging healthier
living habits including regular
exercise and proper diet."
The goals of their clients
have been all over the place.
Tarlow cites some examples.
"We've designed a special
program for a client who
wanted to lose 30 pounds and
also get off of blood pressure
medicine. He's achieved both
goals and continues to work
very hard to maintain his
regained good health."
Continuing she says, "We
have a golfer who wants to
improve his game. We have
designed specific sports
movements to improve his
swing and his endurance. We
have a basketball player who
aspires to be a stronger and
faster athlete. We've created a
program suited to his needs.
We have women who say 'I
want to look better, sexier, fit
into my clothes. I want a body
that looks good in cocktail
clothes.'
Felizzola adds, "Many
people want to stay off of
medicine for high blood
pressure and cholesterol by
getting and staying fit. Others
seek postural improvements,
increased endurance, stamina
and of course weight loss."
Tarlow and Felizzola have
both had long careers in the
fitness industry. Tarlow, with
16 years of experience, was
the Former director of the
Equinox Fitness Club in New
York City. Her exercise class,
'Street Fighting 101' and
'Boot Camp Box' appeared
on cable TV. Felizzola, also a
New Yorker, has 15 years of
experience in the fitness field
in sales, management and as aW
certified trainer.
