The Transit Oriented Develop-

given a tentative okay by city com-
missioners last week, but the real
* vote comes February 19 when York
Residential's site, plat plans and
rezoning request will be heard at a
public hearing.
York proposes to build a residen-
tial/commercial/retail complextst
east of the railroad tracks that would
include 549 living units, 18,000
square feet of commercial space and
36,000 square feet of retail space.
The developers had hoped the
public hearing would be scheduled
for the Jan. 8 commission meeting
because their plat plan at the county
expires Jan. 16. Attorney Dennis Mele
asked that plat approval be put on an
earlier agenda to prevent that, but City
Attorney Andy Maurodis said. "That

PELICAN STAFF
For a city the size and age of
Lighthouse Point, there is not a lot of
room for major development.
It is a city with limited undevel-
oped property.
With that in mind, the "R" words


like restoration, renovation and
revitalization were very much in
vogue in Lighthouse Point in 2007.
Last year residents saw two
major renovation projects com-
pleted.
The first was the-opening and

For Lauderdale-By-The-Sea,
2007 was a year of many changes,
controversy and continued bickering
on the commission dais.
The town manager resigned, the
clerk was fired, and the longtime
mayor decided not to run again.


Year 2007 began on a bright
note when a Lauderdale-By-The-
Sea resident paid a special visit to
the Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue

rededication of the Doreen
Gauthier Lighthouse Point
Library, named in honor of the
city's longtime library director
who has been associated with
the facility since 1979.
The formal dedication of
the new library facility came
in November.
The other major renova-
tion project was the makeover
of city hall and the city com-
mission chambers.
Following the disastrous
deluge that flooded city hall in
December 2006, the city com-
mission was forced to host its
sessions at various locations
throughout the city while the
renovations were made to the
chambers and offices.
The commission was
finally back in its own cham-
bers in November, 2007.


While city hall and library
renovations were the domi-
nant stories in the city, there
was a myriad of other news
making events that were re-
ported in The Pelican.
In mid-February, the city
commission unanimously ap-
proved Mayor Fred Schorr's
appointment of David Don-
zella as Lighthouse Point Fire
Chief.
Donzella, who served as
interim chief for seven months
before receiving his appoint-
ment, joined the Lighthouse
Point department in late 2005
after a 26-year stint with the
Pembroke Pines Fire Rescue
Department.
In addition to Donzella's
appointment, city commis-
sioners approved David
Raines as assistant chief and
fire marshal.
In early June the city
commission approved an ordi-

that the east
side of the
street, above
Copans Road is
in Lighthouse
Point and the
western side
of the street is
located in Pom-
pano Beach.
As both


municipalities deal with pro-
file for the Federal Highway
corridor, there have been
differences in the two city's
approaches to development.
One of the long-standing
aspects of Lighthouse Point
is its a sense of community.
The city hosts many
special events, including
Keeper Days in February,
Dog in The Park Day in early
March, and its annual Dinner
Under The Stars in April and
its annual Arts Exhibition.
In what appears to be
vindication from the general
population that the city is
moving in the right direction,
there will be no contest in the
upcoming Jan. 29 municipal
election.
Two-term Mayor Schorr,
as well as President Chip
LaMarca and Commission
Vice President Sandy John-
son will all continue to serve
on the Lighthouse Point City
Commission as all three were
unopposed.
It was an especially busy
year for LaMarca, whose
political activities go beyond
city limits.
In addition to his elec-
tion to a second term on the
city commission, LaMarca
early in the year was elected
Chairman of the Republican
Party of Broward County.
During the summer he
was named Broward County
Co-Chairman of the Team
Rudy campaign effort of for-
mer New York City Mayor
Rudy Giuliani in his bid for
the Republican presidential
nomination.

For Mayor Lamar Fisher,
his election was a shoe-in as
no one ran for the seat. Fisher
has three more years as the
city's second citywide mayor.
Fisher admits that he was
waiting at the clerk's office as
the clock ticked away to mark
the deadline for qualifying for
the seat. Now that's a politi-
cian's dream campaign. Not

the city commission as long
as they were already in place.
That brought relief to the
newly annexed Highlands
residents where gravel drives
were popular. But it brought
elation to many Pompano
Beach conservation leaders
who see the gravel drives as
one way-to conserve water.

nesting season began quietly,
but locals were careful, as they
took to the beach watching
out for the numerous nests
that sprouted at the water's
edge. Barry Dockswell tossed
his hat into the District 1
campaign, hoping to unseat
long-time commissioner Kay
McGinn. Dockswell recently

chairman of the CRA Adviso-

his campaign. Later, Travis

agreed to move forward and

said if city personnel can't
help solicit funds as they have
in past years, "We won't even
have a festival,"
Pratt appeared before the
city commission to ask them
to release funds budgeted for
the 2008 event to pay about
$8,000 in bills incurred last
year. Bad weather on Sunday
reduced anticipated revenues,
he said, leaving them with a
shortfall.
City Manager Mike
Mahaney was quick to point
out that unless the commis-
sion voted to tap the current
budget, none of the $115,000
budgeted for 2008 could be
used for last year's debt.
At budget time, following
Mahaney's recommendation,
commissioners cut fund-
ing for all the city's special
events. The three major ones,
Founders' Days, Mango Fest
and Fourth of July were each
allotted $115,000, but the
Mango Fest last year cost
about $500,000, much of the
money coming from big cor-
porations solicited by Parks

and Recreation
Director Vince Kendrick.
Pratt said Kendrick is no
longer allowed to help raise
money, a statement disputed
by Dist. 2 Commissioner Syl-
via Poitier.
Pratt added, "I've been
begging for sponsors. Nobody
comes up We've tried on our
own. It doesn't work."
Explaining the situa-
tion, Mahaney said that 16
positions were cut from the
recreation department budget.
"Vince is not available to do
this. I do not have the staff (to
help you). What I do for you,
I have to do for Founders'
Days and the Fourth of July,"
he told Pratt.
Dist. 3 Commissioner
Marty Popelsky pointed out
that the Mango Festival costs
as much as $500,000, half
the former $1 million events
budget. The three-day affair is
a festival of music that attracts
people from a wide area.
Under new guidelines,
festival committees must sub-
mit an audit or notarized fi-


and expenses from last year's
events, before they can access
this year's funding. Pratt's
committee is in compliance.
with that requirement.
Not so the Founders'
Days Committee according
to Mahaney. At the time of
the mid-December meeting,
no financial statement had
been submitted for this an-
nual event which is February
16-18.
Poitier pointed out to
Pratt that the Founders' Days'
Committee has
hired a fund developer to
get sponsors and that his com-
mittee should do the same.
Dist. 1 Commissioner
Pam Militello said, "This
Festival has been around
for a long time. You haven't

The commission did
give approval for the Mango
Festival Committee to hold
a carnival over the Martin
Luther King weekend. The
carnival is being held in hopes
of raising funds to pay off the
old debts, Pratt said.
Militello asked, "You
think a carnival will do this?"
Pratt responded, "No.
That's why I need the com-
mission to vote those funds."

This month Frank Fur-

members of the Sample-Mc-
Dougald House Preservation
Society took time to thank all
the people who donated time
and air conditioning to the
turn of the century historic
home that will soon open as a
museum. Among those hon-
ored were Al Siefert, Vince
Santino, Phil London, Phil
Butz and Craig Sanscrainte.
They wanted a slogan for
the Centennial, and they got
one. John Berry, a 21-year
resident, won the contest.
Tragedy struck a family
when three women rented a


jet ski and shortly after they
left the dock, the jet ski hit
a cement boat lift, killing
Mariejoan Dutreuil, 23, and
leaving the remaining two in
critical condition.
Commissioners voted
against the tide of all other cit-
ies in Broward County to keep
March as the local election.
The rest of the county saved
thousands of dollars by piggy-
backing local elections with
the presidential primaries on
Jan. 29.

Thousands of residents
took advantage of the city's-
free tree-give-away, an
annual event to encourage
residents to rebuild the city
canopy.
The murder of BSO
Sergeant Chris Reyka in the
parking lot of a Pompano
Beach Walgreen's pharmacy
sent waves throughout the na-
tion. The murderers remain at
large, and the reward is close
to $250,000 for information
about them. The city paid
tribute to the Reyka family
with a solemn ceremony.
The commission also named
Southeast Third Street where
BSO offices are located, in
Sgt. Reyka's memory.
September
Thousands of coastal
residents removed tons of
garbage from the ocean and
local waterways. The cleanup
was sponsored by The Inter-
national Coastal Cleanup.
Byron Clarke Gordon,
84, a pioneer insurance agent
died. He founded the Bate-
man, Gordon & Sands Insur-
ance company.
Following the Reyka
murder, Mayor Lamar Fisher
convinced the commission to
pass a 24-surveillance camera
requirement for all businesses
open all night.
October
The saves this month
benefited Waste Management
employees who were suffer-
ing under the loads of over-
sized trash cans. Residents
who had invested in super-
sized cans had to return to
32-gallon cans as some work-

hefting those larger cans onto
the trucks.

Commissioners mulled
over whether they need to
add another ethics code to the
string of codes they already
sign. The most sensible com-
ment came from Commis-
sioner Brummer who said one
more signing won't make him
any more ethical.
Meanwhile churches
around town opened their
doors to bless the animals in
recognition of St. Francis of
Assisi's Feast Day.

Mayor Oliver Parker gathered
742 signatures on a petition
filed with the town clerk in
January. They needed 434
signatures or 10 percent of the
electorate in Lauderdale-By-

The petition charged
Parker with misfeasance for
allegedly applying a special
assessment for fire protection
for EMS.
Parker denied the charges.
In late January, Judge


Barry Goldstein granted a
temporary injunction to stop
recall efforts against Parker.
In his ruling, Goldstein said
the court doesn't accept as

the original site plan from

fantastic new recipes, each a twist on the
traditional, which are sure to surprise and
satisfy.

chiles add a smooth richness to Texas-
Style Beef Chili, which tastes and looks
- great served over cornbread wedges.
Mole Chicken Chili offers a balanced
savory sweetness with hints of cocoa and
cinnamon. Black Bean and Chorizo Chili

ideas.
Smoke Signals Lead to Secret Ingredient
You've heard about them on TV cooking
shows and read about their ohe-of-a-kind
flavor in food magazines, but what's the
big fuss over fire roasted tomatoes?
Distinct fire roasted canned tomatoes
are a convenient offering in the tomato
aisle. Muir Glen takes its award-winning
organic tomatoes and roasts them using
a proprietary blend of natural hardwoods
in an open-flame searing and smoking
process to blacken the skins and deliver a
signature smoky flavor.
"Fire roasted organic tomatoes can be
used in place of regular canned tomatoes
in most recipes where you want to create
a subtle yet rich, smoky tomato flavor,"
explained Jennifer Kalinowski, test
kitchen expert for Muir Glen. "They're a
flavorful, versatile option for chili, soup,
salsa, pizza and pasta sauce recipes."
Look for Muir Glen convenient whole,
diced and crushed fire roasted tomato
varieties at your supermarket or natural
foods store.

inadequate performance of
duties."
The word came in a letter
from Esther Colon, assistant
town manager, to Medina,
informing Medina that her
appointment as town clerk was
terminated immediately.
Robert Baldwin resigned
as town manager. News of his
resignation came in a letter to
the mayor and commissioners,
read during the April 10 town
commission meeting. Baldwin
had been away from town hall
on a 10-week consulting as-
signment in Lake Worth. The
Lake Worth City Commission
asked him to stay on, and he
told them he would continue.
A motion to accept Bald-
win's letter of resignation
failed for lack of a second.


Town commissioners agreed
unanimously on April 24 to
name Esther Colon the town
manager.
Colon has been serving as
acting town manager, filling
in for Baldwin. Colon was
the former finance director.
Commissioners also voted to
accept Baldwin's resignation.
Tina Angelone was intro-
duiced to commissioners as the
new town clerk.
VFD files suit against

In early May, the Volun-
teer Fire Department filed a
lawsuit against the town and
the Broward Sheriff's Office.
Sheriff Ken Jenne fired
the town volunteers in 2006
for alleged health and safety
reasons.
. "We want to go back to the

Design students hon-
ored Four industrial design
students at the Art Institute of
Fort Lauderdale were honored
in early June for their designs
for a beach pavilion at Com-
mercial Boulevard. Members
of the town's master plan
steering committee selected
the winners. The students
are Carlos Carbajo of Peru,
Eduardo Carbia of Fort Lau-
derdale, Edwin Forbes of Fort
Lauderdale and Max Schoeker
of Virginia.
The design was given to
two architects, who had re-
sponded to the project request.
Commissioners also liked
the floor plan in a design by


Forbes and suggested that his
plan be incorporated into the
design.
Site plan OK'd for Wings
In July, the planning and
zoning committee approved
a site plan by Wings Beach-
wear to remodel the build-
ing at 4405 N. Ocean Drive,
formerly occupied by Mack's
Groves. The vote was 4-0 to
approve remodeling the build-
ing to allow both retail and
restaurant uses.
On July 24, commission-
'ers approved a project design
and preliminary construction
budget of $2.5 million for
the Palm Club sanitary sewer
project.
Mayor Oliver Parker said
he has a problem with spend-
ing about $900,000 to repave
the roads in Palm Club when
they're private roads.

unhappy residents, commis-
sioners agreed to scale back
plans for a sidewalk on
Seagrape Drive North during
a special commission meeting
Sept. 5.
The vote was 3-2 with
Mayor Oliver Parker, Com-
missioners Jim Silverstone
and Jerry McIntee in favor of
the move. They agreed to re-
duce the width of the sidewalk
to five feet. Town planner
Walter Keller said they will
try to minimize impacts of
encroachments.
After reviewing conceptual
drawings for three possible
beach pavilion designs on
Sept. 11, commissioners
selected a design by Edwin
Forbes, a student at the Art
Institute of Fort Lauderdale as
their favorite.

Fire assessments cut
in half On Sept. 14 at a
contentious budget meeting,
commissioners agreed to cut
fire assessments in half for
both residential and com-
mercial property owners. And
they voted to eliminate the
town's stormwater manage-
ment utility fees.
In a letter to his support-
ers, Mayor Oliver Parker
announced in mid-Septem-
ber that he would not seek
re-election as mayor. He
has served as mayor for 10
years and vice mayor for four
years.
"I look forward to hav-
ing time with my wife, and I
will enjoy not having to fight
every two weeks," he said in


an interview.
Two residents announced
they will run for mayor. Rose-
ann Minnet, owner of a light-
ing design company and chair
of the planning and zoning
Board, was first to announce.
Lawrence (Peanuts) Wick, a
retired small business owner,
also said he will run.
Commissioner Chuck
Clark's proposal for bringing
back the town's Volunteer
Fire Department drew harsh
rebukes from two commis-
sioners at a September meet-
ing of the town commission.
Clark's proposal, which in-
volved having the volunteers
and BSO Fire Department
work together, included a
clause that no sitting commis-
sioner or mayor may sit with
the VFD in any manner. Com-
missioners Jim Silverstone
and Jerry McIntee objected to


that and other elements of the
plan.
Variance granted in
Terra Mar
The second time was the
charm for Kay Bayman, prop-
erty owner at 1603 W.Terra
Mar Drive.
Commissioners in unani-
mously agreed Oct. 23 to
grant Bayman a variance for
the $1 million home. The
commission reversed its May
unanimous decision to deny
the variance.
During a quasi judicial
public hearing, Bayman said
he had the house built as a
70th birthday present for his
wife Nellie.
He sought a variance to
allow the building footprint to
exceed the maximum building
coverage requirement.
Commissioners changed
plans for beautification El


Mar Beach Resort owner
Paul Novak described El Mar
Drive as the flagship street
and the Champs Elysees of
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea. No-
vak joined residents and hotel
owners who packed Jarvis
Hall Nov. 14 to lobby town
commissioners to alter their
plans for changing El Mar to
one lane in each direction as
part of beautification plans for
the road.
On Nov. 27, commission-
ers decided to change earlier
approved plans and keep El
Mar Drive a four-lane road.
By a 3-2 vote, with Com-
missioners Chuck Clark and
John Yanni dissenting, the
commission approved on first
reading amending an ordi-
nance on the streetscape plan
for El Mar from Pine Avenue
to Palm Avenue.
After hearing from many


business owners and residents
objecting to their earlier plan
to make El Mar one-lane in
each direction at a recent
workshop session, commis-
sioners approved a change
that keeps eight-foot side-
walks, a two-foot curb and
gutter, two 10-foot lanes and
20-foot median.
Mayor Parker takes heat
from Palm Club Mayor
Oliver Parker took blistering
reproaches from residents
Nov. 27 after he switched
his position on his promise
made four years ago to re-
place septic tanks with sewer
lines. That switch could cost
residents of Palm Club $3.5
million.
The commission decided
to table a discussion of as-
sessments for Palm Club
residents until after the Jan.
29 elections,

Militello said, "I would put
the hearing off to get the
answers."
CDM has already pre-
sented figures recommending
an $18 a month increase for
residential water users.
Dist.4 Commissioner
Steve Gonot said he too
wanted more information
before voting on the York
development, adding he is not
happy with the "contradictory
information" provided by the
consultants.
A move by Dist. 2 Com-
missioner Sylvia Poitier to
place York's business on the
Jan. 8 agenda died for lack of
a second.
"This is a huge, huge proj-
ect," Millitello said. "If they
have to reapply, then they
have to reapply."
Mele countered saying,


"This is very wasteful. It will
take months and the developer
will have to pay fees."
It has taken at least a year
for York's plans to be ap-
proved by various city boards.
The Planning and Zoning
board give the project a 6-
lokay in October after York
reduced living units and com-
mercial square footage.
York was scheduled to be
heard by the commission in
November, but the issue of


water supply and water rates
came up and the developer
tabled its requests.
Although the project has
met with resistance from
members of the Original Save
Our Beach organization, York
president Kathleen Yonce said
this week," We're looking for-
ward to a positive outcome at
the city's February meeting so
we can move forward with this
project and the many benefits
it will bring to the city."
