Commission

finds no way

to insure

firefighter's

comatose wife


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Deerfield Beach Fire Lt. Les Bau-
man lost his case last week. The city
commission voted unanimously not to
tap into contingency funds to pay for
his injured wife's treatment at a brain
rehab center.
Bauman's policy does not cover
acute rehab situations City Manager
Mike Mahaney said.
Showing his emotions, Mayor Al
Capellini expressed his sympathy to
Bauman and produced a $500 check
for Linda Bauman's care along with
a promise to hold a fundraiser at his
place of business.

pelsky said, "I am truly sorry. I'll help

get ready to
load up a fire-
truck packed
with toys.


Every Christmas season since 1992, Lighthouse Point Fire Depart-
ment's Driver Engineer Mike Sullivan.has spearheaded a holiday effort
to provide gifts for under privileged children. Mike initiated the Toys-
for Tots campaign following the devastation of Hurricane Andrew.
In addition to the toys, Sullivan also helped organize a fund raiser to
collect money that will be distributed to single mother families in need
and the Camillus House for the homeless.
"The actions of Mike Sullivan and his co-workers provide a good
indication to all of us what one committed person or group of people
can do to make a difference in our community" said Fire Chief David
Donzella. "The Lighthouse Point Fire Department is all about helping
people. I am very proud and grateful for the efforts of Mike and his fel-
low fire fighters."

If elected, what are your plans for the

LBTS volunteer fire fighters?


Peanuts Wick
"The safety of our citizens
is the most important topic
in fire suppression. It is my
opinion the closing of the
Volunteer Fire Department, or
VFD, was done in an illegal
manner. Broward Sheriff's
Office had three ways to elimi-
nate the VFD but chose to not
work within the contract. A


In an attempt to understand
positions of the candidates,
The Pompano Pelican is asking
questions of those seeking
office at the Jan. 29 election.
Last week, we posed the above
question to candidates, but
did not publish Mr. Wick's
response. We regret the
oversight. Here is Peanuts
Wick's answer to the above
questions. editor
corrupt Sheriff allowed this,
but no other comments should
be made until the court case is
finished.
My desire would be to
put the VFD in the unused
firehouse for training pur-
poses. When they can show
the proper certifications, they
would be put back into the


qualified labor pool. As Chief
Lello stated there are 200,000
paid fire professionals in this
country, while there are more
that 1 million volunteers
working for the safety of our
country.
I feel that a mixture of a
professional department in
tune with the VFD will ac-
complish that goal. The VFD
could bid on the entire town
contract, using automatic aid
with either BSO, Fort Lau-
derdale, and Pompano Beach
departments. This would give
LBTS the best of both worlds,
being safety and financial
responsibility. In daily life
your safety and security will
be my most important matter."
- Peanuts Wick


Fort Lauderdale not

interested in bidding for

LBTS fire contract


By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
Fort Lauderdale city com-
missioners, after hearing from
its fire chief, James Eddy, will
stay out of the bidding process
for Lauderdale-By-The-Sea's
request for fire service.
Lauderdale-By-The-
Sea commissioners voted in
late September to terminate
its contract with Broward
Sheriff's Office Fire and get
proposals for alternative fire
services.
During a conference ses-
sion recently, Eddy reported
to the Fort Lauderdale com-
mission that in response to


the request for proposals, his
department did a preliminary
assessment to determine the
practicality of entering into an
interlocal agreement and/or
service contract with Lauder-
dale-By-The-Sea.
He said the issues of
concern included "geographi-
cal challenges for adequate
coverage; unknown legislative
issues impacting taxes; on-go-
ing budgetary constraints; and
start-up costs for additional
staffing, apparatus and equip-
ment."
Eddy also mentioned
collective bargaining-related

in any way,"
Bauman appeared before
the commission a month ago
to ask that they override Blue
Cross/Blue Shield's refusal
to cover the cost of his wife's
$2,000-a-day treatment at the
Florida Institute for Neuro-
logical Rehabilitation (FINR)
in Wachula.-
Linda Bauman become
comatose after a skiing ac-
cident in Quiet Waters Park in
August and has been in North
Broward Medical Center
since. Previous moves to a
nursing facility resulted in
infections that put her back in
the hospital.
At FINR, Bauman told
commissioners, his wife
would be stimulated for 90
days and then evaluated. Best
results come when treatment
is administered early after a
brain injury, he said. Linda's
brain stem was injured in
the skiing accident, blocking
transmissions of information
from her brain.
In an attempt to raise
funds, Bauman auctioned the
couple's Hummer at Bone
Fish Mac's last week bringing
in about $60,000. FINR re-
quires him to have $150,000
before they will accept his
wife as a patient.
Last week, Bauman asked
the commission if acute care
will be included in future
insurance plans "for other


employees who may need
critical care."
Mahaney said some of
the city's plans do include
acute rehab, but not the one
negotiated for the firefighters
by their union. In any case, in
her current condition, Linda
Bauman would not qualify for
coverage since patients must
be able to participate in their
rehab treatments.
Dist. 2 Commissioner
Sylvia Poitier said.to Bauman,
"I feel your frustration. This
has been an education for all
employees. There is a lot of
difference in the plans. The
union negotiated yours. It's a
no-win situation."
Added Mayor Capel-
lini, "This was the plan that
was selected. I'm sorry about
what happened. There are
supplement plans offered, but
nobody takes them."

Developers in Pompano
Beach who demolish build-
ings for new structures are
going to have to keep their
land's appearance tidy un-
til the construction actually
begins.
.Commissioners gave their
final stamp of approval to a
new law that states any lot
left vacant by demolition and
clearing of an existing struc-
ture must be properly main-
tained in the event that new
construction is not imminent.
Properly maintenance,
according to the ordinance,
means removing rocks and all
building materials and main-
taining a green ground cover.
After concerns lodged by
Commissioner Kay McGinh
and Mayor Lamar Fisher, re-
garding the need for irrigation
to maintain the ground cover,
the ordinance was modified

Broward Teachers' Union sponsors reading program


SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN
Dozens of children
and their parents from the
Pompano area attended a
Saturday reading program at
the Charles Drew Resource
Center on Dec. 8. The Bro-
ward Teachers' Union Civil
and Human Rights Commit-
tee and the School Board of
Broward County sponsored
the event.
BTU First Vice President
Bernie Schultz said the event
attracted more children than
expected, which thrilled the
event's staff. Participants
received free books and a
complimentary breakfast.
"Learning and knowing how
to read is a fundamental hu-
man right," Schultz said. "We
volunteer our time on Satur-
day mornings because we are
a union that cares about our
members and their communi-
ties."
Union and district staff

parents tips for reading with
them in the home," Schultz
said.

in concert

Curtain Call Playhouse will pres-
ent a performance dedicated to two
musicals at the Herb Skolnick Center
in January.
Phantom of the Opera features
music by Andrew Lloyd Weber and
lyrics by Charles Hart and Richard
Stilgoe. This story is about an op-
era company's prima donna being
replaced by a young soprano who is
secretly being trained by a mysterious
stranger. The plot twists and becomes
a love triangle.
Les Miserables by Alain Boublil
and Claude-Michel Sch6nberg, with
lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer won eight
Tony awards. The story is about Jean
Valjean, released on parole after 19
years on the chain gang. Les Mi-
s6rables reminds us that whatever
our outward differences may be, our
longings for individual liberty and
peace are the same.
Performances take place at the
Herb Skolnick Center, 800 S.W. 36

William Meleski, owner of
Greight Spaces, found himself in-
trigued by the Centennial project. He
says, "Five months ago, I walked into
a meeting that was open to the public
and volunteered my services which
were immediately accepted. Ever since
I have been very involved, and I have
had much fun meeting so many vol-
unteers working hard to promote city
pride and history."
Centennial Chair, Jerry Bowman
says, "We grabbed this enthusiastic
young man and put him right to work.
He's a real spark plug who's working
very hard to raise awareness for our
big Centennial. He's now our Direc-
tor of Volunteers. He's organized our
booth sales for memorabilia and sou-
venirs. He schedules our booths, sets
them up and staffs them. It's a big job,
and he's doing it well."
The main idea of the booths is
to raise awareness and do some fund
raising along the way. Meleski says
the commemoratives of the city's 100
year birthday are priced just above
cost so the fund raising is minimal.
"We're selling house flags, license
plates, mugs, caps, visors, t-shirts and
polo shirts. Our best sellers are the

mugs and polo shirts. The real goal
of the booths is to talk up the city's
Centennial. We have volunteer sign
up sheets, and we have recruited 200
willing participants. We're making as
many appearances as possible at every
public function which is up to 20
booths a month.
"I deliver and open the booth. If
I'm successful in my scheduling the
volunteers man the booths. If not, I
do."
He needs help from dedicated
volunteers with the time to do public


relations for the Centennial. Their job
is to chat with the people who stop by
and help build a sense of pride in the
city. Meleski admits "It's hard to in-
ject my enthusiasm into the volunteers
but I keep trying. Some of our most
successful and diverse events were the
Tree Giveaway, Granny's Attic and
the Ely football games."
Because he is young and unmar-
ried, he says he has time to give to
this worthy cause. Like many dedi-
cated volunteers, he feels he gets as

Former volunteer fire fighters want

their jobs back; voters will risk

town's welfare if they get them
When Lauderdale-By-The-Sea commissioners notified Broward Sheriff's
Office, or BSO, that it would be terminating its contract for fire suppression and
Emergency Medical Services in 2008, they said they wanted to shop the market.
The idea was to see what was on the table price-wise from other professional
services that offer fire and emergency protection.
But it looks like most shops are closed.
Pompano Beach Fire Chief Harry Small told his city commissioners that
his department is willing to work with BSO Fire Department in Lauderdale-By-
The-Sea with an "Automatic" aid contract, but Small inserted in that contract
that his department will pull out if the town terminates BSO. Pompano Beach
has not offered a bid for anything other than automatic aid.
Now this week, Fort Lauderdale Fire Chief James Eddy has recommended
that his city not respond to LBTS's request for a fire proposal.
BSO plans to bid for the contract, but they have made it clear, the bid will
be for fire and Emergency Medical Services. Their short-lived association with
the LBTS volunteers which ended with a termination of the volunteers is still a
vivid memory.
That leaves Oakland Park Fire Department, west of Federal Highway, as
a possible bidder. But this city is too far away. That bid would have to include
additional equipment and setting up an on-site EMS in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea.
But Oakland Park has not responded.
Why?
Tempers are flying in LBTS; cool heads are scarce, and for the sake of poli-
tics, a majority of this commission is willing to throw the safety of its residents
under the bus.
The argument that the LBTS volunteer fire fighters [and there was a time
when they really were volunteers] have a history in town means nothing. Just
about every town in Florida began with volunteer fire and police departments.
The antics of the LBTS now defunct paid volunteers may have held this
town hostage for a while, but those antics are well-known throughout the coun-
ty. Who would want to get involved with a town where two commissioners,
former paid volunteer fire fighters, simply want their jobs back. Why not? They
show up for a fire, and a check's in the mail for $27. They show up for a drill,
and another check's in the mail. They take the fire truck for gas, and another
check's in the mail. There is no transparency with this group.
We wonder if LBTS commissioners should expect responses to their bids at
all.
Politicians can rant, deceive and promise all they want, but in the end, the
voters will determine whether tranquility will ever return to this town.
If the candidate you're supporting is supporting the return of the VFD, you
need to ask why. We suggest voters do that before they ever need the service of
a fire department or an emergency medical team.
The decision wil be made on Jan. 29.

The New Property Tax Plan -

"What's In It For Me?"
By Lori Parrish
BROWARD COUNTY TAX APPRAISER


Dear Lori,
On Jan. 29, Floridians will have an opportunity to vote on the proposed
property tax reform constitutional amendment. My question is simple: What's
in it for me?
B.W., Fort Lauderdale, FL

There's something for everyone in the new constitutional amendment to
cut property taxes. While the relief may be far less than what we hoped for, it
contains four key types of tax savings.
Portability of Savings: Floridians will be able to move their Save Our Homes
benefits up to $500,000, from one homesteaded property to the next. In order to trans-
fer the SOH benefit, you must establish Homestead within two years of selling your
previously homesteaded property. These benefits will apply to all sales in 2007. Porta-
bility applies to both up-sizing and down-sizing in value and may be used an unlimited
amount of times for moves anywhere within Florida.
Additional $25,000 Homestead: Floridians will see their Homestead Exemption
double to $50,000 for all properties with an assessed value of at least $75,000. This
second exemption does not apply to the school portion of your tax bill, meaning the
average Broward homesteaded owner will save an additional $308, if the amendment is
approved.
Business Equipment Exemption: Currently, all businesses in Florida are subject
to an annual tax on tangible personal property (TPP). For a business, TPP items include
equipment, computers, desks and phones. For small rental properties, TPP may include
beds and refrigerators. This amendment creates a $25,000 TPP exemption resulting in
an average savings of $508 for each business ending filing requirements for over 80%
of all Broward businesses.
10% Cap for Non-Homesteaded Properties: The annual growth of taxable value
for businesses, apartments, second homes and other rental properties will now be lim-
ited to 10% per year.
Visit our website at www.bcpa.net to use our online calculator tools to see
how these new proposals will impact you. You can request an absentee ballot
by calling 954.357.7050 or go on line to www.broward.soe.org.

Pompano Beach commissioners pass resolution asking


state and federal agencies to tighten gun control laws


By Joe Hartmann
PELICAN STAFF
They have no power to
change gun laws, but Pom-
pano Beach commissioners
unanimously agreed to send a
message to Tallahassee asking
for tighter measures on gun
sales.
In what was a follow up
resolution to its move to add
24-hour surveillance cameras
to any facility that operates
all night, the Pompano Beach
City Commission is going a
step further.
Following a suggestion by
Commissioner George Brum-
mer, the commission moved
by a 5-0 vote, a resolution to
curb gun violence.

The city commission went
on record, urging the federal
government and the state of
Florida to adopt a more effec-
tive control of fire arms.
Brummer's explana-
tion came in the light of the
death of a Broward County
Sherriff's Department Deputy
within the city.
Sgt. Chris Reyka was shot
Aug. 10 in the parking lot of
the Walgreen's Pharmacy on
Powerline Road, a 24-hour
facility.
"It is just too easy for
people in Florida to get a
gun," Brummer said in pro-
posing the resolution. "We as
a city are powerless to enact
any [gun law] ordinances;

let them know our feelings on
the matter."
In its resolution, the city
noted that the sale of firearms
at gun shows by private indi-
viduals is not subject to any
waiting period or background
check.
The commission is asking
the state to close that loophole
in its revision of state firearms
laws.
According to the resolu-
tion, "Too many people who
should not have access to
firearms can buy them legally
and many others can get them
easily through illegal chan-
nels."
The approved resolution
was to be sent to Governor

Mr. Tom's Complete Auto Repair now offers

complete auto and air conditioning repair


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
Mr. Tom's Complete Auto
Repair, at 1901 N. Dixie, is
well known in Pompano
Beach for its expertise in
automotive air conditioning
repair. Now the new owner,
Joe Beaudry, offers complete
full service vehicle repair on
all models of cars and trucks.
Beaudry says, "I bought
the place two years ago and
expanded our services. We're
proud to have Gerson Liberi-
ste who's been here since
1980 and is well known as a
wizard when it comes to re-
pairing automotive air condi-
tioning."
Shop manager, Don Pate,
adds, Everyone comes here
for their AC hoses, and that
includes other repair shops
because we manufacture them
right here. They can be on
their way in a half hour. Ger-
son is a miracle hose maker
and fixer."
Beaudry brings his own
skills and years of experi-
ence into the shop. He has
been an ASE certified master
technician for many years. A
graduate of Lincoln Technical
Institute in Jacksonville, Fl.,
he says, "After graduating,
you still have to get on the
job experience before you can
even qualify to take the test
for certification. And even
though you are certified you
still must be tested every four
years to keep your certifica-
tion."
Beaudry's pleased to also
have on his team, Ted Kroll
a top diagnostic technician.
Kroll says, "I've been working
on cars since 1985 when I was
in college earning an Associ-
ate Automotive Engineering
degree. Since vehicles are all
computer controlled now, a
diagnostic computer is es-
sential." He explains that the
special diagnostic computer
interfaces with each individual
car's computer to locate the
problem in that car. He says,
"We find the best quality part
resource. When the customer
approves the estimate, we
order the parts which are read-
ily available. I install the parts
and verify that the problem is
repaired. We usually solve the
problem within a day."
Dave Taibi, owner of
Artistic Landscaping in Boca


THE TEAM























Joe Beaudry is the new owner of Mr. Tom's which he bought two years ago, offering complete auto repair in addi-
tion to air conditioning repair. Shown here in front of shelves of parts, he says. "If we don't stock it, we can order
the part needed and get it almost immediately." [Photos by Phyllis J. Neuberger]

















Don Pate, shop manager,
Gerson Liberiste is known in the shop as the says, "If you treat a customer Ted Kroll is a diagnostic techni-

ness is repeat or referral."


Raton, has followed Beaudry
to Pompano Beach because he
says, "I've been using him for
years. He's knowledgeable,
fair and can do varied projects
on diesels, trucks and multi
functional vehicles."
Both the owner and his
manager Pate stress that
Mr. Tom's is service driven.
Beaudry says, "If the car is
tied up, we drive the customer
home or to his work site and
pick him up at no charge."
Pate adds, "With Dixie
Highway lined with repair
shops, you have to treat a
customer with respect and
honesty and do a good job if
you want them to return to
your shop, and we must be


doing it right because 70 per-
cent of our business is repeat
or referral."
Cathy McCormick, a
Pompano Beach letter carrier
is a case in point. It's true,"
she says. I've had nothing
but good experiences at Mr.
Tom's. The staff is always
pleasant and they take time
to explain everything to me
because frankly as a woman
I know very little about cars.
They even send me a remind-
er when it's time for a car
check up."
Mr. Tom's is authorized
to service Enterprise Fleet
Vehicles. Any business with
a leased vehicle from En-
terprise can bring it in for


servicing.
Asked for advice to ve-
hicle owners, Beaudry says,
"At manufacturers recom-
mended times, we suggest the
following list of things to do
on a regular schedule. We
even offer a package of these
services as a get acquainted
special for only $29.95.
* Change lube oil and filter

Reasonable resolutions fare better


Ask Lorraine


Lorraine Andy is a graduate of
Barry University with a masters
degree in social work. She is a
licensed clinical social worker
with the State of Florida and a
certified hypnotherapist.
Dear Lorraine: Every
new year I make resolutions
that only last a few weeks or
months. How can I break free


from this frustrating habit and
actually accomplish some-
thing I set out to do?
(Pompano Beach Hope-
ful).
Dear Pompano Beach
Hopeful: You are not alone!
Most people have similar
disappointments in regard to
New-Year resolutions. The
key to completing your goal
is to make it achievable and
simple. Although intentions
are sincere, people fail at
completing resolutions be-
cause they take on too much
or are not ready to make the
changes.
So, the first step is to be
honest with yourself about
what you are ready to do.
Once you have made that

determination you can narrow
it down to one behavior or
goal; taking on too many is a
guarantee for failure. Then,
keep it realistic. Deciding
that you are going to lose 50
pounds is a lot.
Instead to lose 10 pounds
by May 2008 and leave it at
that. The success of losing 10
pounds will motivate you to
loose another 10 and so on.


Simply put, take one goal
and break it down into smaller
steps, allowing you to enjoy
the feeling of success.
Once you have gained
new confidence and pleasure
from the first success you will
be more inclined to move on
to the next step. Happy New
Year and may 2008 be filled
with little successes and a
heightened self-esteem!

learning how they feel about
their surroundings. From
what I hear, they all want
more community activities
that are both cultural and fun.
Our civic centers are truly
impressive. I didn't know
they existed and now I hope
everyone realizes they.do and
takes advantage of them.
People seem to want a ma-
jor art show, theater, music,
better use of our Amphithe-
ater."
Though he's lived in
Pompano Beach for 10 years,
Meleski's volunteer activities
have made him feel the city's
pulse. He says, "Pompano
Beach is a real city in the
heart of a tourist state. Our
residents want to stay and
spend in their own town and
be proud of its main street
which doesn't yet exist."
Because he believes these
public events are the glue
which hold the city together,
he pours much energy into the
Centennial Boat Parade hop-
ing to help make it the longest
and best yet.
His next project is a free
U.S. Marine Band Concert
in the Amphitheater. "I was
able to bring this group from
Camp Lejeune, North Caro-
lina for a March 29 concert
because of a professional
contact I had with Captain
Gordon D. James, a recently
returned U.S. Marine. It's
one example of what good
networking can do."
Asked if his volunteer
work has been good for
his business, he says, "Not
directly, but.it has helped me
better understand our city's
demographics and needs. I am
also very aware of the diver-
sity of this city's population
and interests. Pride of city is
still the common denomina-
tor."
To volunteer at the Cen-
tennial Booths, call Meleski
at 954-461-7418.

About Greight Spaces
Meleski's company,
Greight Spaces, is three years
old. He has a staff office
project managers and design-
ers who work with a variety of
trades people. He says, "We
are a design and construction
firm located in Station Square
at 750 E. Sample Road. We
design and redesign space to
the client's desires, mainly in
homes, condos and restau-
rants."
A graduate of the Art

ers and construction firms.
Knowledge of construction
and planning are essential in

Greek cuisine and Hellenic Hijinks await diners at Avra Taverna


Avra Taverna
3001 E. Commercial
Blvd.
Fort Lauderdale
Tel: 954-616-1514

By Malcolm McClintock
PELICAN WRITER
I am currently fighting an
overwhelming urge to book
a one-way ticket to Greece.
After a delightful evening at
Avra Taverna, my impression
of Greek food and culture
has been permanently altered
for the better. Although I had
always enjoyed the occasional
outing to a Greek restaurant,
I had become accustomed
to the pedestrian version of
Gyros, Souvlakis and other
cliche dishes that have come
to typify the Greek cuisine in
America.
But Greeks are full of
pleasant surprises.


To begin with, Avra Taverna
has a comfortable fully-
stocked bar where diners can
enjoy soul-warming libations
and classic Greek appetizers
such as charcoal grilled
octopus smothered in onions
and red-wine vinegar or
mussels steamed with Ouzo,
feta, tomato and herbs.
As Happy Hour comes
around twice a day (4 to 6
p.m. and 11:30 to 2 a.m.) there


is ample opportunity to stop
by for half-priced drinks and
a comprehensive sampling of
Mediterranean hors d'oeuvres.
If you are more interested
in enjoying the full Greek
experience, then a visit on
Friday or Saturday night is a
must.
Diners are greeted by a
resplendent iced display

full of seafood shipped in
from European exporters
and purveyors at NY Fulton
Market.
The interior design
represents typical
Mediterranean-.d6cor evoking
the different aspects of Greek
life. From seaside village
scenes with real-life fishing
boats, nets and mounted fish
on the walls to the Greek
columns encasing a stage
reminiscent of the Parthenon.
Once seated, a friendly staff
member will gladly guide you
through the myriad options of
Hellenic specialties available.
For an appetizer, my wife
and I opted to try a Saganaki
which is a pan of traditional


Kefalograviera cheese with
Brandy and lemon. This dish
is similar to the Mexican
queso fundido except that
when they bring it to your
table, the cheese is flamb6ed
at the table and accompanied
by a boisterous shout of
"Opa!"
My. wife chose the striped
bass, and I opted for Chicken
Ladoregand upon the
suggestion of our waitress.
While we waited for our
main courses, we enjoyed
the lovely guitar and singing
of George, an established
entertainer who delivered
romantic Greek melodies to
a very attentive audience.
Between his sets, we were
treated to a belly dancer who
gyrated rhythmically to lively
music.
When our meals arrived,


Avra Taverna chefs pay attention to detail from the salads to the entrees.

we were delighted by the :
aesthetic beauty of our
dishes. The striped bass
came whole and had been
beautifully charcoal grilled to
further showcase the infused
flavors of oregano, white
wine, capers and lemon that
permeated the tender and
delicate fish. Served with
oven roasted potatoes or rice
pilaf and a vegetable medley,
this is a fantastic choice for
health conscious patrons.
As promised, my chicken
platter was a huge portion,
char-broiled and marinated
in lemon, oregano and olive
oil to produce a crispy and


exotic version of the classic
roasted chicken. It was also
accompanied by crunchy
vegetables and beautifully
seasoned rice, with plenty left
over for another meal.
For dessert, we tried a slice
of the Greek.classic known
as Baklava. This specialty
involves layered filo pastry
stuffed with chopped almonds
and walnuts all drenched in
honey.
We also indulged in a slice
of Galaktoboureko which is
similar to the Baklava but
with a custard filling.
While satisfying our sweet
tooth, an energetic Bouzouki'


band had taken to the stage.
The singer, Niki, belted out
lively Greek songs designed
for clapping and dancing.
SThe. festive ambiance was
still going strong as we were
heading out the door.
In fact, Avra Taverna
offers so much food and

Po' Boys are New Orleans style hero sand-
wiches. These, created by Emeril Lagasse, are
the centerpiece of a delicious, casual meal. It's
worth a trip to the bakery to get the best hero
style buns you can find.
Emeril s luxurious Southern Style Corn Chow-
der takes about an hour to make, but tastes like
you've been cooking all day. This is a classic
Emeril-style recipe made much easier with
boxed chicken stock.
Romaine Hearts Salad adds a lighter note to
this menu, complementing the hearty sand-
wiches and chowder.

Pompano, Deerfield new aquatic centers lure

competitive swimmers throughout the nation


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Collegiate swim teams,
booked into aquatic centers in
Deerfield Beach and Pompano


Beach, will have a positive ef-
fect on lean municipal budgets
as the old year slips into 2008.
Ten teams have secured
pool times at Deerfield's two


pools, the Olympic size facil-
ity at Deerfield Beach Middle
School and the Deerfield
Beach
High School pool. Aquatics
Coordinator Khaled Coury
said his pools are full until
Jan. 10.
Wheaton College swimmers
came Dec. 15. Members
of nine more teams begin
arriving Dec. 27. With each
team bringing as many as 50
swimmers to town, and the
city charging each team $7
per day, per swimmer,:the
revenue is a nice boost to the
pool's winter revenues with
little additional cost to the
city.
The numbers would be even
better if a $100,000 moveable
bulkhead that would double
the swim capacity were in-
stalled.
This is the third year Deer-
field has hosted the teams.
"Every year more and more
schools are coming. Every
team that has come here in the
past has come back," Coury
said. "I think they like the
staff as much as the facility."
Coury added he almost snared


Duke University and has a
verbal promise for next year.
In Pompano Beach, Life-
guard Lt. James Gray is coor-
dinating pool times at the new
aquatic center for five teams
who will be in town through
Jan. 14. This is the first year
his facility has been available
and the charge here. is $6 a day
per swimmer.
NCAA rules require the
teams to have a swimming
meet so Coury has scheduled
an all relay meet for Jan. 3
which is attracting some teams
practicing elsewhere in the
area. South Florida's swim-
ming complexes including the
Coral Springs Aquatic Center,
FAU, St. Andrews, Seacrest
High School and the former
Swimming Hall of Fame.
These facilities have been
attracting swim teams for win-
ter training for some time. The
combination of warm weather,
beaches and sun is the lure.
In North Broward, Deer-
field and Pompano are es-
pecially popular because of
their beaches. Both cities are
scheduling an ocean swim for
the college teams.


At the Howard Johnson
Plaza Resort, Marketing
Manager Margie Osborn greets
the swimmers with open arms.
"We have 10 swim teams and
two basketball teams in the
next few weeks. We turn away
as many teams as we take,"
Osburn said the young athletes
"liven up the place" and get
along with resort guests of
every age. "It's a nice mix,"
she said.
Arriving here after Christ-
mas are Bates College SUNY
New Paltz,St. Mary's College,
Davidson in North Carolina,
University of Mary Washing-
ton, University of Northern
Iowa, Clark University, Cape
Henry High School from Vir-
ginia Beach and a USA swim
team from Summers Hills
YMCA.
Pompano hosts University of
Ottawa, Ohio North, Duquesne
University, the Olympic Club
Team and Horace Mann High
School.
Coury invites the community
to come out to the Jan. 3 meet
and see his facility and the

Deerfield Beach Dolphin
swimmers are invited as spe-

is planning a bigger meet with
entry fees. But before that,
in March 2008, the German
National Team, a pre-Olympic
squad, will be in swimming
here for 10 days.
Both cities keep their pools

HOLIDAY
WISHES
By Donna Torrey
GARDEN LIFE
There are many theories
about the holiday season's
origins. Some link it to the
pagan celebration of the win-
ter solstice around the 21st,

The winter holidays are a time
of giving, of loving and of
celebration.
I would like to take a mo-
ment to thank everyone who
loves trees, flowers, plants,
and nature, those loyal folks
who frequent The Garden
Gate, and have become our
friends. We enjoy the conver-
sation, the sharing, and being
able to watch time go by sea-
son after season with you.
During the past 11 years
I've watched some of your
children grow up, some have
even graduated from college
and some of you have become
grandparents, myself includ-
ed! We've weathered many
hurricanes together, both liter-
ally and figuratively and it's a:
privilege to watch our friend-
ships grow along with your
purchases.
One Garden Gate friend
told me a story about his little
granddaughter. Every week

picks up a quart of fresh
strawberries. When she spots
him coming, she shouts with
glee "strawberries!" Then he
puts her on his lap, takes out
his pocketknife and removes
the stems, while they gobble
up the whole thing. This is
the garden version of Santa
Claus.
When I was little, I had an
old Uncle Sam, who used to
bring us each an orange as a
Christmas gift. When was


the last time you thought of
produce as a gift? I have to
admit, I thought it was a bit
odd then, but when he was a
little boy living in Western
New York, at the turn of the
century in 1900 AD, a fresh
orange from Florida was
probably a glorious, amazing
treat. Think about it.
This holiday, join me as
I try my best to appreciate
the simple and holy gifts of
nature.
