Economic lows give birth to

creative ideas as housing market,

oil prices and insurance soar

Business owners, teachers and civic groups find they have

to work harder, rethink old ideas to stay in the game


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
Selling cars isn't as easy as it used
to be. As the sub-prime lenders have
virtually disappeared from the hori-
zon, customers with less than perfect
credit scores aren't getting the loans
anymore.
Bob Harpest, chairman of the
board of the Pompano Beach Chamber
of Commerce, doesn't want to blame
everything on the sub prime lend-
ers. He says there "are a lot of little


things" that have lowered the econom-
ic climate in this area.
"From a business perspective,
the automobile industry has been hit
severely," says Harpest, who is direc-
tor of operations for Eddie Accardi
dealerships. Accardi has four locations
in Florida, nine franchises and two lo-
cal dealerships in Pompano Beach.
"Finance companies are repossess-
ing cars that many people should never
have purchased," said Harpest.
Some of the same people who
should not have made the automobile


purchases are finding themselves with
balloon notes that have come due,
Harpest explains.
When he wears his chamber hat,
Harpest says the chamber is changing
its approach to local business owners.
"We're working harder to keep our
members, and we are trying harder to
help them."
Harpest adds that memberships
and subscriptions are some of the
things people are cutting back on to

Lauderdale-By-The-Sea ousts Broward Sheriff's Office


EMS in favor of AMR Ambulance services


Starting this Sep-
tember, Lauderdale-
By-The-Sea residents
will be served by AMR
Ambulance Services
for emergency medical
needs and transpor-
tation. The town has
agreed to AMR's bid for
one ambulance in town
and a second ambu-
lance staged at Holy
Cross Hospital.

new provider of emergency
medical services in Lauder-
dale-By-The-Sea starting in
October.
As expected, commis-
sioners chose the firm over
the Broward Sheriff's Office
at their Tuesday meeting. The
vote: 4-1 with Mayor Roseann
Minnet dissenting.
AMR's bid was for
$670,000, compared to BSO's
$3.8 million.
"The figures don't add up.
BSO has priced itself out of a
contract,"
Commissioner Stuart
Dodd said after seconding
Commissioner Jim Silver-
stone's motion to award the
contract to AMR.

difficult decisions we will
face and one of the hardest,"
Dodd said. "BSO was do-
ing a fine job at considerable
expense."
Dodd said the qualifica-
tions are the same for both
bidders. "AMR absolutely
will do a good job," he said.
"Will they make mistakes?
Probably."
Dodd urged AMR offi-
cials in attendance to get the
knowledge of local streets,
noting that commissioners
have heard too often of "ser-
vices driving around looking
for addresses."
"Bringing in AMR is the
only sensible solution we
have in front of us," Dodd
concluded.
"We're anxiously await-
ing Oct. 1 to come so we
can provide the town with
great service," said Bill Hall,
general manager for AMR in


Broward, Palm Beach, St. Lu-
cie and Martin counties. "Our
presentation spoke for itself.
We're confident in our abilities
to perform the service."
Hall assured commission-
ers their employees will do
zone familiarizations, getting
to know the area, before they
start.
AMR's bid calls for one
vehicle to be stationed in town
staffed with two paramedics,
including a battalion chief, and
an emergency medical techni-
cian. A second, backup unit at
Holy Cross Hospital, would
have one paramedic and one
EMT.
In noting his support for
AMR earlier in the meeting,
Vice Mayor Jerry Mclntee
said, "We have been reassured
that if we can't get through to
9-1-1 [to reach AMR] we will
be able to dial a second num-
ber to dispatch,"McIntee said.

That number was not
disclosed at the meeting.
"If you screw up, I'll be
the first on your case," McIn-
tee told AMR officials. "You
guys will have to be on your
toes if you get the contract. I
think you can do it. You have
proved it in 167 cities. It's
time for a change."
McIntee said a letter has
gone to BSO asking about
$483,000 in transport charges
for ambulance runs that
should have gone to the town.
"I don't see one fire
department person here," Mc-
Intee said. "I see 13 people
from AMR. What kind of
people are we dealing with if
the chief isn't here?"
Several BSO officials,
including Assistant Chief
Richard Sievers, attended
the earlier workshop but did
not stay for the commission
meeting.
One resident told com-
missioners to "Let (the town
manager) hire the proper
people. We're not all mil-
lionaires. When God calls
you, you're gone, whether it's
BSO or AMR."
Commissioner Birute
Clottey said she had been
informed that 58 complaints
had been filed against AMR
when the firm had a contract
in Davie. She asked Brooke
Liddle, AMR's Broward
County operations manager,
for an explanation.
He said he had no knowl-
edge of those complaints. But
he and Hall said their original
contract was to serve 30,000
residents and then the area
was increased to 57,000 in
a year. Hall said they were
there as Davie transitioned
into its own service.

The economic bag is mixed with optimism and forecast for a slow

down in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea as tourist season comes to a close


By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
The slowdown in the
nation's economy is having a
ripple effect locally.
"People are picking and
choosing and giving up some
things, including travel, be-
cause they have to," says Judy
Swaggerty, executive director
of the Lauderdale By-The-Sea
Chamber of Commerce. The
combination of the cost of
gasoline, plane tickets, hotels,
meals and entertainment add
up, and some can't afford it -
this season, she said.
The number of visitors to
the LBTS Chamber's Welcome
Center is down from 2,894 in
February last year to 2,312 in
Februarythis year, Swaggerty
said.
Chamber membership
is holding its own with 289
members as of the end of
February.
Still, hotels and motels in
town seem to be doing pretty
well, according to Paul Novak,
chamber president. "It's going
to be a good year but not great
and not as good as last year,"
Novak said. "There have been
some vacancies in January,
February and March."
Novak said retailers are
hurting. "People are here, but
they're not spending. Business
is down." He said construc-
tion on El Mar Drive probably
doesn't help.
At the Santa Barbara Inn,
co-owner Beverly Wilson said
they're having an excellent
season. Numbers of guests are
up, and they're seeing more
Canadian visitors now that
their dollar is so strong.
Wilson said that like
everyone else they are af-
fected by the rising prices for
groceries and gasoline. "But
our business has maintained,
and we're thankful for that
and very blessed." She and her
husband Gil are co-owners of
the inn on El Mar Drive.
At the Driftwood Beach
Club, 4417 El Mar Drive,
manager Ellen Zavell said
they're having a great season,
perhaps because they are time-
shares and have repeat owners
and renters.
"Business is just as good,
if not better, than last year,"
she said.
Zavell has noticed, how-
ever, that people are cooking
more in their units rather than
going out to eat. As a result,
restaurants are not as busy as
usual, and the shops aren't as
busy.
Some visitors complain
that the rates are too high, -
which Zavell said she hasn't


heard before. They're $170 a
night for a one-bedroom unit
with full kitchen.
Retailers are feeling the
effects as well. Business is
down from last year at Para-
dise Gifts and Fruit Shipping,
and owner Sally Castellano
says she hears a lot of tourists
are unhappy about changes
in town and say they won't
return.
She mentions the closing
of the Pier Coffee Shop and
Mack's Grove and small ho-
tels that are going condo. The
season is also shorter, perhaps
because of the early Easter.
Castellano said her season
starts in January and is over
by Easter.
"Without local support,
it's no wonder businesses
can't make it. Here it's so very


seasonal," she said.
Her shop opened in Octo-
ber 2006. They ship fruit and
sell "affordable, quality gifts
with a coastal flair."
"I'm optimistic for the
long term," said Jason Clarke,
Realtor with Oasis Realty
Group. "It will be bumpy for
the next couple years sure, but
there are some fantastic buys
out there now, and educated
buyers are honing in on that."
Clark said his firm
specializes in single-family
homes, commercial proper-
ties and townhomes. "Luckily,
we have deals that are going.
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea is a
unique little town, and a lot of
newer townhomes are sell-
ing to younger professionals.
Business is beginning to pick
up."

Another local Realtor has
a different view.
The economy has been
lousy. "It's been awful for the
last six months," said Robert
Polyasko, owner of Lord's
Realty. "Nobody is looking.
You would think things would
pick up while the tourists are
here in January, February and


March, but that hasn't hap-
pened this year."
Polyasko said some
properties have been on the
market for over a year.
"It has to turn around, but
I don't think it will his year,"
he added. "We can pretty
much write this year off."

Commissioner Steve Gonot
said, "The mall was not
intended for such seating. If
we do it for you, we have to
do it for all." Also speaking
against the petition was Deer
Isle Homeowners Associa-
tion president Bill Gantz who
said his residents had noise
concerns.
The commission was
also not swayed by Road-
house Grill manager Dennis
Camarota's request for 32
porch seats on either side of
his entrance door on the south
side of the building at 401 N.
Federal Highway.
Camarota said his request
was based on his customers'
request for a smoking area
and a place where they can
bring their dogs. No addition-
al bar is planned nor would
there be music he said.
The restaurant chain sold
recently to Duffy's, a restau-
rant consortium.
Camarota said the com-
pany has put $100,000 into
remodeling the 12- year-old
building and has become
"very strong in the commu-
nity, giving out 10,000 free,

This season Lauderdale-By-The-
Sea or LBTS is enjoying a real increase
in foreign visitors from cold countries
like Canada, England, Sweden, Fin-
land, Iceland and Germany. The staff
and the volunteers at the town's Cham-
ber of Commerce welcome and help
them every way they can.
Chris Villata who volunteers at
the chamber from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.
every Tuesday says, "We know the in-
crease is due to a very cold winter and
our currency which is very favorable to
foreign visitors. I feel somewhat like an
ambassador, and I'm anxious to have
them walk out of here with a good im-
pression of the area and our country."
Villata is also impressed with the
fact that these visitors all speak enough
English to get by. She says, "All of our
visitors including the foreign ones are
a pleasure to deal with because they're
on vacation. They're usually happy
and receptive to suggestions."
Asked what most of the visitors
want, Villata says, "They want to know
what there is to do and to see in the
area. This means we must all be very
current on everything happening in
our town and in Broward County. Of
course my first recommendations are
for restaurants and hotels and activities
happening right here in our town. Now
that we are in season, hotel space is at
a premium. Our hotels call in weekly
with availability reports."


Chris Villata, volunteer at the Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center, is on hand every Tuesday
from 10 to 3 to help visitors line up things to do and see in LBTS and Broward County. Shown
here, Villata is helping visitors from Kentucky figure out which places they want to visit and which
water sports they want to try.


Most of the people who drop into
the chamber want to know about area
museums, botanical gardens, shopping
centers, flea markets, outlet stores as
well as nearby water sports, golf and
tennis. Water taxis are very popular
with visitors who take them to restau-
rants and museums.
"Most questions are easily an-
swered," Villata says. "The hardest
ones involve directions. We rely on
Map Quest to help us. We hand a print
out of directions to those in need."
It's easy to see that Villata is
friendly, outgoing and full of infor-
mation. Executive Director of the


Chamber Judy Swaggerty says, "Like
all of our volunteers, Chris is very
important. The Visitor Center depends
on them and they never let us down.
Chris and her husband Tom also vol-
unteer at all of our special events such
as the craft shows, Taste of the Beach,
Christmas by the Sea and the fish
fry. They might be ticketing, serving,
selling chamber products or doing
whatever needs to be done."
And that's not all. Before com-
ing in to be interviewed, Villata had
stopped by with other members of the

Realtors say look for the

upside of the downside

By Judy Wilson
COMMENTARY

Is there an upside to the downturn in housing pric-
es? Many real restate professionals say there is.

Most obvious is that when the mortgage lending industry regains its
footing, South Florida's economy, which depends heavily on real estate, will
return to solid rather than shifting sand. Attracted to this land of boom or bust,


speculators may finally ride off into the sunset
- at least for awhile leaving good home buy-
ing opportunities for the rest of us. And despite
permanent increases in the cost of living here,
our climate, outdoor lifestyle, and a state taxing
structure that is still friendlier than most, will
continue to attract new residents.
The slowdown in Broward County's popula-
tion that was reported this week may actually be
a good thing. It may provide the time to analyze
transportation, education and housing needs.
Rather than those frantic knee jerk reactions to
growth, maybe people in charge can begin to
anticipate and prepare for it.
One fairly immediate benefit to falling home
prices is that taxes will go down proportionately.
Realtor Linda Anderson said, "Assessments
are a reflection of the actual market values so
taxes will go down, and then we have the extra
perk of doubling the Homestead Exemption.


t(Look at it this
way. If the na-
tional average declines
1.9 percent as predicted
by the National Associa-
tion of Realtors and the
average price of a home
is $217,000, then that
makes it roughly worth
$212,900, a decrease of
$4,100. Most people drop
that the minute they drive
their new car or SUV out
of the showroom and that
depreciation continues.
Gould


Now second home owners have the new cap for their properties, so the tax
outlook is super."
Anderson, who is president of Deer Creek Real Estate said, "Hopefully
we will not lose all the gains we made during the run up. I am hopeful that
although prices are down, they will still level off ahead of where they were
before it started. I just don't believe there will be a net loss. I expect all the hot
air to come out though -all driven by cheap, "no risk" money and that will
- increase affordability in a big way. "
An upside to the downside should occur when lenders become more re-
sponsible again.
Anderson said, "People buying real estate will have to live within their
means because lenders are tightening the rules back to the way they used to be,

State and County news


Broward companies and couple

sued for foreclosure scams

Scheme victimized more than 30 families,

defrauding them out of hundreds of

thousands of dollars in home equity

Attorney General Bill McCollum announced that his office has sued three
Broward County companies and their owners for their alleged roles in a foreclo-
sure rescue scheme. The lawsuit names Florida Housing Council, LLP; Equity
Investment Capital Management, Inc.; Star Enterprises, LLC, and Jack Moussa
and Rose Moussa as the participants in a deceptive operation that defrauded
hundreds of thousands of dollars in home equity from numerous homeowners in
the foreclosure process.
"The Attorney General's Office is committed to protecting Florida's citi-
zens from fraudulent schemes designed to prey upon homeowners in potentially
desperate situations," said McCollum. "We will aggressively pursue those who
attempt to profit at the expense of citizens who are facing the foreclosure of their
homes."
Florida Housing Council allegedly identified homeowners in the foreclo-
sure process and sent them an advertising mailer telling them to contact Florida
Housing Council immediately to avoid foreclosure. Representatives of the com-
panies would then persuade homeowners to sign documents, including compli-
cated trust agreements and deeds, which conveyed the titles to their properties to
trusts controlled by Florida Housing Council.
The complaint states consumers were often charged various fees for signing
the trust agreements even though no actual services were provided.
According to the lawsuit, Jack Moussa also occasionally misrepresented
to consumers that Florida Housing Council was a government entity. Once the
deeds were transferred, Florida Housing Council would allegedly charge the
homeowners rent, and if rent was not paid, the homeowners would be evicted
from their homes.
Jack Moussa would supposedly either keep the homes or sell them for a
profit. At least 38 homeowners in Florida have been affected and hundreds of
thousands of dollars in homeowner equity has been taken.
The Attorney General's lawsuit seeks damages against the defendants on
behalf of Florida consumers and requests an injunction prohibiting the defen-
dants from working in the real estate business in Florida. Civil penalties of
$10,000 per violation of Florida's Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act are
also being sought. Consumers who believe they may have been victimized by
any of these defendants may contact the Attorney General's Office at 1-866-966-
7226 or online at http://myfloridalegal.com to file a complaint.
A copy of the lawsuit, filed today in Broward Circuit Court, is available

6 The Pelican







Friday,.March 28.2008


Wilson
Continued from page 6

the way it should have always
been, a reasonable down pay-
ment and loan to value ratio
and verified financial informa-
tion. It was so clear that these
110 percent loans that you got
in 20 minutes on the Internet
were fool's gold. It just wasn't
right."
With property values
declining, insurance costs
should follow although that
industry bases its premiums on
expectations of disaster. Nev-
ertheless, if the homeowner
only has to protect a $400,000
investment rather than a -
$600,000 one, his premiums
should go down unless insur-
ers are allowed to hike their
rates to make up for falling
revenues.
While Florida Realtors re-
leased depressing figures this
week home sales are down
28 percent and prices declined
by 15 percent Kiku Martin-
son, director of Real Estate
at Campbell & Rosemurgy,
has a positive report. More
single family homes sold in
Lighthouse Point in 2007 than
in 2006 127 to 107, proving
again the real estate adage:
location, location, location.
Lower prices and large
inventories make this a
buyer's market. "Buyers can
be choosey and are looking
for the best location, best price
and best condition," Martinson
said. "But it seems that some
buyers are going by the notion
that they have to wait for the
'bottom.' After all, we never
know when the bottom is until
after the fact."
She notes increased traffic
at her company's open houses
although buyers are taking
more time to make up their
minds.
A definite upside to the
downturn is that this diffi-
cult market has discouraged
fly-by-night real estate agents
Martinson said. And it's not
the worst time she recalls.
"There was a time in the '80s
when interest rates were at 18
percent and sellers had to take
back second mortgages to sell
property. Homes were sell-
ing then, and they are selling
now," she said.
Anderson thinks her bal-
liwick, Deer Creek Country
Club, maintains its market
even in bad times because it
attracts buyers who bring sub-
stantial cash to a deal and can
get financing.
She is seeing a pick up in
interest among "snowbirds."
Two buyers this week are
reacting to this buyer's market
- one, desiring a condo for his
one-month-a-year here.
Another came in want-
ing a quick fix on the market,


found a property he liked and
returned home for a discussion
with his wife.
In these times, Anderson
doesn't count on these 'sales'
until they happen, but she does
say, "It seems like these snow-
birds think this may be their
hot opportunity."
If locally real estate sales
numbers are depressing, na-
tionally the figures aren't too
bad. Realty Associates Florida
Properties realtor Henry Gould
has looked at national averages
and isn't too upset.
"Look at it this way. If
the national average declines
1.9 percent as predicted by
the National Association of
Realtors and the average
price of a home is $217,000,
then that makes it roughly
worth $212,900, a decrease of
$4,100. Most people drop that
the minute they drive their new
car or SUV out of the show- .
room and that depreciation
continues," he said.
People need to return to
the attitude their parents had
about real estate: It's a long
term investment, Gould said.
In those days the word "flip"
was associated with a hair-


style, not real estate dealings.
Across the country last
year, housing sales posted the
fifth best year on record. And
in 2009, hoine values are ex-
pected to increase 3.1 percent.
Better for sure than the SUV
and maybe, Gould said, better
than your stock market paper.
"If the market tanks cyclically
as it does every five years
or so, at least you have real
property and over time values
will grow again and surpass
where you were."
- And here's good news:
People who own a home an
average of 10 years actually
accumulate about $100,000
in capital gains which, by the
way, is non taxable, Gould
adds. Not surprisingly, this
realtor believes a home is still
the best investment of most
lifetimes.
Gould says if you have
good credit, you can get 30-
year financing with interest
in the low six percent. The
real problem is the huge
overabundance in inventory.
Normal market conditions are
around a five month supply.
Today we have a 10 month
supply or maybe a little more


GENDER


- and that doesn't include the
condo market here in South
Florida.
"This begs the question
of are we overbuilt? For the


The Pelican 7
moment, yes, but eventually it
will all sell and we'll be back
to an inventory shortage and
a seller's market. Typically
real estate goes in five year

Construction
begins at
Pioneer Park

Deerfield Beach Major im-
provements at Pioneer Park will
start this week, beginning with
the construction of the new Fort
Riverbend playground, as well as
a baseball field.
Upgrades for the city's first park
were approved earlier this month
when city commissioners awarded
$500,000 in construction con-
tracts. The largest item, demoli-
tion and construction of the play-
ground, went to West Construction
in the amount of $456,597. An-
other $34,000 was awarded for
the purchase of trees from Garden
World and $9,000 was spent for
the demolition of the Pioneer Park
Annex and a storage house.
Funds for these projects come
from a 2003 Bond Issue, grants
and FEMA.
Located at NE 2 Street and Di-
xie Highway, Pioneer Park has
changed radically in recent years
to make way for a master park
plan. Progress on that plan has
been halted due to hurricanes and
changes in state budgeting.
While construction is in progress,
the existing baseball fields will be
closed. Also, the Dixie Highway
entrance to the park will allow
only access to the Tennis Center
and the Cemetery Building. Ac-
cess to the boat ramp will only be
available from NE 6th Street. This
phase of construction is expected
to run through the end of April.
For questions call 954-571-4583.


Home owners 62 and older may qualify for reverse

mortgages, making aging at home affordable


Chris Rabold discusses the advantages of a reverse mortgage with a potential client. [Photo by Phyllis J. Neuberger]


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
Chris Rabold, local reverse mort-
gage specialist, with Financial Free-
dom, says "A reverse mortgage is a
government backed program which al-
lows senior homeowners, 62 years and
over, to convert a part of the equity
in their homes into tax free income
without having to sell the home, give
up title or make a required monthly
mortgage payment. As there are no
restrictions on the use of the funds, the
process may be used to improve qual-
ity of life and make retirement years
more enjoyable.
On its web site, Financial Free-
dom, based in Irvine, CA., describes


the corporation as being"instrumental
in the development of the reverse
mortgage concept and as being the
nation's largest reverse mortgage
specialist focusing exclusively on the
product."
One of the most popular uses of
reverse mortgage is designating the
proceeds for long term care and home
improvements enabling seniors to
safely age in the familiarity of their
own homes. The proceeds have also
been used to pay for medical bills or
prescription medicine, a grandchild's
education or simply to seek peace of
mind by having extra cash available.
Rabold says, "with a reverse
mortgage, borrowers retain the title to
their homes and are free of monthly


mortgage payments unless they wish
to pay the loan down and reutilize
funds. Providing that real estate prop-
erty tax and insurance payments are
made, and the home is maintained in
reasonable condition, borrowers will
never, because of a reverse mortgage,
be forced to leave their homes.
Repayment of the reverse mort-
gage is not required for as long as the
homeowners live in the home as their
primary residence. The loan becomes
due for repayment should the hom-
eowner sell, move, refrain from living
in the property for a period of 12
consecutive months or upon the death
of the homeowners. The amount that

Pompano Beach and chamber shake

hands and call two-year-old sale off


By Joe Hartmann
PELICAN STAFF
"Enough is enough," said
Pompano Beach Vice Mayor
E. Pat Larkins, before the
commission decided to take
back control of city property
that was to be used by the
Pompano Beach Chamber af-
ter the city bought the cham-
ber property at 2200 Atlantic
Boulevard.
The two-year-old deal
involved a $450,000 purchase
price paid to the chamber
to be used to renovate the
building at 102 SW 2 St. just
adjacent to city hall.
Now the city seeks a final
termination agreement.


But until the city drafts a
new agreement, the chamber
board has not acted on the
change of plans.
"We will be happy to
take the building back," said
Chamber Vice Chairman
Steve Hickman. "But that
would have to be approved by
the chamber board."
"I really don't think that
this was ever an important
piece of the CRA,"\Mayor
Lamar Fisher said. "The most
simplistic solution is to give
the land back and retain the


.MA


dollars."
The chamber never
moved out of its Atlantic Bou-
levard location. According to
Hickman, they will require
additional office space in the
future.
It was also pointed out
that while the city held
$450,000 in escrow, it was
supposed to be in an interest
free account. It was kept in
an interest bearing account
that has netted approximately
$59,000.

between the Roadhouse porch

other problems such as water
runoff from air conditioners
that creates muck along the

said he has always worked

doesn't bother to call code

CRA director
Continued from page 9

Funds from the CRA are
collected through property
taxes in the 147 acres of the
CRA. A portion of those taxes
is returned to the CRA to fund
public projects in the CRA
area.
Keith Chadwell, who
serves in the dual position of
city manager and CRA execu-
tive director said "It was at the
guidance of counsel that we
bring this matter before you.
We needed an agreement be-
tween the CRA and the city to
handle the situation of putting
Mr. Franke in place as CRA
director."
Although Commis-
sioner George Brummer voted
against the resolution, he said
his vote was not a disapproval
of Franke or the employment
arrangement. His concern was
where the funds would come
from for Frank's salary.
"This is the right situa-
tion," Brummer said. "The
CRA is not equipped to handle
personnel or staff or salaries
and benefits. He belongs as a
city employee."
CRA East Advisory
members Jack Rogerson and
Barbara Gordon stressed the
need for Franke to be a true
representative of the CRA, not
city staff.
"He was hired to be the
face of the CRA," Rogerson
said. "He should be directly
responsible to the CRA board,
not the city."
"I have every confidence
in Mr. Chadwell that he will
allow Mr. Franke to do his
job," Gordon said. "We need
to give, him a chance."

Rabold explains, "The

value of the home at the time
of repayment. When the loan
is due for payment, the lender
does not 'get' the home. The
lender receives the payment of

the sale. Should their heirs
wish to keep the home, they
would pay the loan balance
from their own sources or
obtain another loan to pay off
the reverse mortgage."
Reverse mortgages
are not for everyone
Rabold will give prospec-
tive applicants the facts they
need to decide if this financial
instrument is right for them.
He says, "I've been sell-
ing reverse mortgages for
two years and have been in
financial services business for
23 years. Before moving to
Florida a few years ago, I was
a financial advisor with Mor-
gan Stanley in New York. I
believe that reverse mortgages
are the most exciting financial
product that I have ever been


able to offer clients."
He went on to say, "The
funds from a reverse mortgage
may be received as a lump
sum, monthly income for up
to life, line of credit, or any
combination of these options.
There is no income qualifica-
tion or minimal credit review.
Combined with the no month-
ly mortgage payments, this
can be an attractive product
for senior homeowners. All it
takes is a phone conversation
to determine if a reverse mort-
gage is the right opportunity
for senior home owners."

Ah! Spring

By Donna Torrey
GARDEN WRITER
Spring is in the air in
South Florida. You can tell
by the little things that only
gardeners notice. Like the
tiny leaves coming out on
the maple trees, the seedling
salvias and dune sunflow- .
ers popping up, the way the
cardinals are singing for their
mates, and by the Epiden-

drums spikes now bursting

Florida is subtle, but oh, so
sweet. Don't miss it!
Epidendrum radicans, also
called Ground Orchid, is one
of the easiest ground covers.
They can be started from a
small piece with a few roots;
given a mostly sunny spot and
average water (position near a
sprinkler to take advantage of
once per week watering), they
will multiply quickly.
They form a nice mat,
which will suppress weeds;
covering the bare ground
is THE best way to combat
weeds. If you leave an empty
space, the opportunistic weeds
will come and live there,
so for low maintenance and
beauty both, keep planting
those ground covers.
Coming in orange, yellow,
red, and purple, Epidendrums
are a fantastic plant to have
and can also be used in pots.
To plant them you simply slip
the stem end into the mulch
or soil and that's it. Don't
bury them. If using a pot, mix
some potting soil with orchid
mix.
While slightly more ex-
pensive than ordinary ground
covers, realize that you are
making an investment with
this orchid, that will provide
you with years and years of
increasing beauty, and plants
to share with friends and
neighbors.
Keep planting love, and
Happy Spring!

Transport yourself to the Andes with the Peruvian

delights of Cabo Blanco in Fort Lauderdale


By Malcolm McClintock
PELICAN WRITER


Cabo Blanco
948 NE 62 Street
Cypress Creek
Fort Lauderdale
954-489-2244

Let's be honest, when
asked what kind of food you
are in the mood for, seldom
does the answer contain the
word "Peruvian."
Now you will have a good
reason to answer just that.
Cabo Blanco offers a
cheerful d6cor with a great
Latin flair.
I started with a Chicha
Morada, truly a great way to
slake a desiccating thirst. This
sweet Peruvian drink is made
fresh with red corn water,
cloves and cinnamon. It is said


These potatoes prepared Huancaina style will make your taste buds dance with
delight. The spicy cheese and pepper sauce is outrageously addictive!


to be a marvel for high blood
pressure.
And thank goodness I had
that particular beverage in
hand when I began my Papa
a la Huancaiida. This decep-


zesty. It had an addictive kick
to it that made it impossible
to stop eating. Served on a
bed of lettuce, it was a great
start to my culinary voyage to
Peru.
The next stop was a pleas-
ant offering of Lomo Saltado.
This hearty dish of juicy
steak tips was smothered with
tomatoes, onions and cilantro.
It had a remarkably smoky
flavor that reminded me of
outdoor grilling. "The sauce
is made from the juices of the
meat," said Manager Hugo
Mendoza as I was making a.
mental note to get a take-out
container for this dish.


The following exhibit was
an enormous portion of slow-
cooked lamb shanks. Named
Seco de Cordero, the lamb
is stewed for hours in a rich
broth of red acipanga peppers,
green peas and dark beer.
The result is an awe-inspiring
delivery of melt-on-your-fork
meat accompanied by a tangy
coriander sauce bursting with
personality. At under $10,
this was the greatest sheep for
shekels exchange I had ever
seen.
But let's not forget that
Peru also has 1,500 miles of

stunning coastline. And with
a rich maritime history comes
great culinary responsibility.
True to its roots, Cabo Blanco
delivers a stupendously flavor-
ful seafood Ceviche that I still
daydream about today. The
plate was overflowing with
shrimp, seabass fish morsels,
octopus and onions all natu-
rally cold-cooked in lemon
juice. The process of using the
acids of the lemon to cook the
principal ingredients creates a
burst of freshness that has no
rival.
Returning to the
subject of wines, there
is a substantial selection
of Peruvian, Chilean,
Argentinean, Spanish and
Italian wines. And with


most bottles under $20, there
is no risk in trying out some-
thing from the more obscure
regions. Also, a dizzyingly af-
fordable Sangria is a must for
all aficionados of this thirst-
quenching beverage.
With a host of daily
specials and most dishes
priced between $10 to $20,
this is one memorable voyage
that will not require traveler
checks. With other restaurants
in Hollywood and Plantation,
Cabo Blanco has been suc-
cessfully capitalizing on its
unique brand of South Ameri-
can cooking (although they do
offer Cuban dishes as well.)
It is open every day from 11
a.m. to 10 p.m. (midnight on
S weekends) with ample
parking and wheelchair
accessibility.

stay afloat.
Real Estate is also
seeing change
"I've never been so busy,"
says Cathy Prenner, Campbell
& Rosemurgy Real Estate.
But Prenner isn't settling
for the blame game; she's just
working harder.
"It takes more to sell a
house today. A few years
ago, maybe we had to show a
house five time before a sale.
Now it may take 20 times. In
a sense everything you do is
harder."
Prenner says she works
with the seller and points out
a few hard facts.
"We want our sellers to
position their homes to sell.
If you have 45 houses on the
market that are similar, you
have to make yours one of
the top three best deals," she
says. "Houses are in a beauty
contest and a price war."
Prenner says 2005 was
the best market in South
Florida. People were buying
houses to flip for a profit. That
year, the average number of
houses on the market was 99,
and of those homes, Prenner
explains, half of them were
under contract.
Today Lighthouse Point
has 250 homes on the market,
and for the first time, a num-
ber of homes have already
gone into foreclosure.
"In 2005, property was
treated like stock and pur-
chased to make a profit. That
was never the intention of
a house. You have to buy a
home and live in it for years,"
says Prenner. "I feel sorry for
the people who got into real
estate to make money fast.
There was a time when sell-
ers could get everything they
wanted, but a normal healthy
market is a give and take with
compromise on both sides."
Survival by the wallet
Joe Usmann says he was
ready for this to happen and
he and his construction com-
pany were prepared.
"Now we can buy, and we
are trying to get the best deals-
we can," says Usmann. "A lot
of people are going to make a
lot of money if they are buy-
ers and play it right."
Usmann is also content to
hold back on three recently
constructed town homes he
has had on the market. Con-
vinced the market will come
back, Usmann plans to put
them back on the market in
about a year.
But like Prenner and
Harpest, Usmann believes
the key during this economic
slump is hard work.
A Pakistani immigrant,


Usmann came to the United
States in the 70s where
he started a restaurant on
Atlantic Boulevard, The
Ranch House, now the site
of Umberto's Restaurant and
Clam Bar.
When Usmann went into
construction, he went a bit
further than many others. He
said he wanted to be on top of
every aspect of building, so he
became a licensed plumber, a
licensed electrician, a licensed
air conditioner installer and a
licensed contractor.
Usmann is busy now
building town houses and
two commercial businesses in
Pompano Beach.
If anything irks Usmann,
it's Pompano Beach City
Commission's inaction on
the city's East CRA, a pub-
lic project supported by tax
increments to enhance and
redevelop public property on
and near the beach. The idea
is to provide an infrastructure
that would attract develop-
ers. The CRA is also an urban
concept of building mixed-use
centers that reduce vehicular
traffic and encourage pedes-
trian traffic.
The CRA is already ap-


proved for projects that mix
residential and commercial
development. But county
approval has been held up,
and Usmann points his finger
squarely at his city commis-
sioners for that.
Usmann says the city
could have worked harder to
take a plan to the county that
would have been favorable.
The CRA plan, now nearly
seven years old, has never
gained a consensus from
residents and business owners
regarding a master plan. The
city recently hired an execu-
tive director to focus on this
project.
School budgets
Pompano Beach Middle
School teacher Vicky Sharrow
is a media specialist. When
the need for new computers
came up, Sharrow knew there
was no money in the budget..
"Our computers are out-
dated. Technology keeps
.changing, and some programs
that we need won't work with
older computers. With our
school population, the only
way some students get access
to computers is through the
school. We need them to be
able to access the latest tech-

Sharrow decided to move
away from the school's budget
to find a grant for computers:
Sharrow's grant for 12 new
MacIntosh computers was ap-
proved last week.
In another grant, Sharrow
brought in $8,000 of high tech
programs and digital equip-
ment.
"We all have to look to
other resources during eco-


nomically troubled times,"
said Sharrow.
Harpest has his own solu-
tion. "We're selling cars to
get them off the lot. Some-
times that's a loss. We try to
keep our inventories down.
Cars depreciate on the lot, Ev-
erybody's feeling the pinch.
Maybe the election will make
a difference. There are a lot
of little things to think about,"
Harpest said.

First step for 500-room hotel at the isle

gets approval in Pompano Beach


By Joe Hartmann
PELICAN WRITER
Following quasi judicial
hearings Tuesday night, the
Pompano Beach City Com-
mission a plat resolution for
Pompano Park Racino.
In the one that could have
the largest impact on the city,
the commission voted 5-0 to
approving the Pompano Park
Racino Plat of 162.46 acres
in the area east of Powerline
Road and south of Southwest -
3rd Street, Pompano Park


Place.
While most of the build-
ings on the plat, including the
racetrack grandstand, barns,
dormitories and casino build-
ing already exist, there were
three possible additions to the
plat as submitted.
The first is the develop-
ment of a 500-room hotel on
the property with a 175,000
square feet of commercial use
and 200,750 square feet of
industrial use.
Dick Coker, represent-


ing Pompano Park, said that
while these editions are pos-
sible, no concrete plans for
the additions have been made.
"This plat is necessary for
the county to develop impact
fees for any future projects,"
Coker said.
In response to citizen
inquiries, Coker assured resi-
dents and city officials that
any additions to the Pompano
Park complex would need to
come before the city for ap-
proval

It took months of work, but one of Pompano Beach's favorite
destinations is now operating almost to capacity.
Anglers will have to bring their own bait, drinks and snacks
until the city reopens or leases space for concessions.
Phyllis Korab, assistant city manager, says the pier entrance
and parking will be temporarily free until final plans are con-
firmed for the site.
