Former Pompano Mayor Woodrow Cheshire unveiled the Pompano Centennial plaque last
weekend, commemorating the pioneers who founded this city in 1908. Before the unveiling, many
people were given railroad spikes, representing the impact the Henry Flagler's Florida Eastcoast
Railroad had on many South Florida towns. Pompano Beach was a winter farming area. Vegetables
were shipped throughout the US from the now defunct railroad station that once stood on Flagler
Avenue and First Street. Spikes were delivered to dozens of children of Pompano pioneers by Ray
Helton, Jim NEller, John Robertson and Bud Garner. [Photo courtesy of Dan Hobby, Pompano

Suh, a Navy Seal, killed in Afghanistan in 2005. "It was a large loss of life that
day, Rask recalls. "The Seals were on a rescue mission in Afghanistan when
their helicopter was shot down." Today he wants his high school friend to be
remembered for his character, hard work and patriotism. High schools students
who emulate these traits will be eligible for the memorial scholarship.


When Rask, a Light-

high school, his best buddy,
James "Sung" Suh became a
Navy Seal. Suh was killed in
Afghanistan in 2005. He was

Pompano Beach to rename Fifth Avenue as Pioneer Drive


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
Margaret McDougald
Shadoin has been trying to
get Fifth Avenue in Pompano
Beach renamed as Pioneer
Boulevard for years. She's
mailed letters, emails and
called everybody who might
have the power to make it
happen.
Last Tuesday, the com-
mission agreed that Shadoin's
idea made sense, especially in
the light of 2008 as the Cen-
tennial birthday of Pompano
Beach.
Mayor Lamar Fisher
remembers one particular
address, 431 NE 1 St. That
house was the home of his
grandparents, Louis and Inez
Lyons Fisher, on the comer of
First Street and Fifth Avenue.
Today crisp new town homes
have replaced Fisher's grand-
parents' home for younger
professional urban dwellers.
But Fisher recalls much
about what happened on this
corner where he spent much
of his time riding his bike to
visit his grandparents.
"The greatest times were
when we had all of our fami-
lies there. We had cookouts
on the patio. The house had
the biggest swimming pool
in town, and we swam a lot.
We always got together as a
family. My grandparents built
this home in 1936. My father
was born and raised there. My
grandfather Louis was Mayor
of Pompano from 1942 to
1943."
Fisher's great grandfather,
Clinton Lyons, was one of
the Pompano founders who
signed the articles of incorpo-
ration to turn this rural area
into a city in 1908. His wife
was Mittie Lyons.
Bud Lyons, Fisher's
great uncle owned the largest
bean and pepper farm in the
United States. That farm is
now known as Coral Springs,
Florida.
Fisher made the motion
for Fifth Avenue to be called
Pioneer Drive.
Commissioner Rex Har-
din supported the move, say-
ing it was "very appropriate to
make this change during the
city's Centennial year. Pio-
neer Drive was unanimously
supported by the commission
as the new name.
While little will change
on the present Fifth Avenue
other than a second sign that
reads Pioneer Drive, Shadoin
feels the area will emerge as a
destination for those who love
history.
"We cannot afford to
neglect Pompano's past," says
Shadoin. "When my gen-


The Austin House, 410 NE
5 Ave., was built in 1924 of
hollow ceramic tile and Dade
County pine. The two-story
home was built for Pompano
Beach pioneer Frank "Matt"
Austin, who owned and
operated several businesses in
town.


eration is gone, the following
generations will not know the
history of much of our city.
The people who have lived on
Northeast Fifth Avenue have
been very instrumental for
the development of this city.


They came here when it was a
wilderness and laid the foun-
dation. Now we are a desti-
nation for people who love
history. These homes reflect
the past and the architecture
of the past."

Zoning paves way for future pet cemetery in Pompano Beach


By Joe Hartmann
PELICAN STAFF
A secure and safe final
resting place for resident pets
may be coming to Pompano
Beach.
Approval by the Pompano
Beach City Commission of a
zoning change paved the way
for the possible future facility.
SCI Funeral Services of
Florida, which operates the
Forest Lawn cemeteries in the


city as well as the Kraeer Fu-
neral Homes, is exploring the
possibility of a pet cemetery
in the city.
"It is very much in the
seedling category at this
point," SCI's Melissa Pitalo
said. "It is an area of business
we have been exploring and
we wanted to be prepared to
move logistically under the
proper zoning."
She added that SCI cur-
rently operates pet cemeteries

in other areas of the coun-
try, including the District of
Columbia, but none in South
Florida.
At its March 25 session,
the commission voted to allow
pet cemeteries in the CF, or
Community Facilities zoning.
According the Pompano
Beach Zoning Director Robin
Bird, it would be possible to
operate a pet cemetery as part
of a human cemetery because
they areboth approved CF
uses.
"In fact, there are some
people who want to be buried
with their pets," Bird said.
In other action, the com-

Mary Kyle came to Pompano
Beach from West Virginia in 1951 to
teach at Blanche Ely High School.
Then named Coleman, it was a segre-
gated school for Black students. Ever
since that time so long ago, Mary
has used teaching and play writing
to educate and enlighten Pompano
Beach children and adults to the con-
tributions made by their predecessors
to Black American History.
She chuckles and says, "I was re-
minded recently of a play I wrote long
ago for the third grade called Spring
Visits Colonial America.
"One of the students in that class,
Willie Green, who is now a grown
man came up to me, and told me how
much he wanted to be in that play but
was too shy to ask for or play a part.
However, he made up for it last year
by playing Carter D. Woodson, father
of Black History Month in another
play I wrote called, A Rose Park Mo-
ment. You never know when you've
had an impact on a student."
Her most recent play, a collabora-
tion with her daughter Karen Kyle
Crockett, took place Feb. 29 of this
year. This community salute was a
reenactment of the story of the Little
Rock Nine and the horrors the nine
children encountered as they ap-
proached Central High School, then
an "all white" school in Little Rock,
Arkansas. To attain a better educa-


Mary Kyle stands with her husband,
Nicholas, at the E. Pat Larkins Civic
Center. Kyle depends on her hus-
band for transportation to the many
events she attends. Below are her
granddaughter, Courtney Crockett

tion, these nine courageous children
desegragated that high school on Sept.
25, 1957. They faced vicious dogs,
powerful water hoses and a mob of
cursing people. Then Governor Orval
Faubus is quoted as saying, "There
will be blood in the streets of Little
Rock before I will allow integration at
Central High."'
Backed up by 1,000 members
of the 101 Airborne Division of the
U.S. Army dispatched by President
Dwight D. Eisenhower, the nine
children entered their classrooms and
made history. The play honors those
nine children who will be forever
remembered by statues now standing
proudly on the grounds of the Arkan-
sas State Capital building.

Kyle has had an impact in many
areas starting with her own family.
Following in her footprints are her
daughter Karen Kyle Crockett and
her granddaughter, Courtney Crockett
both currently teaching at Blanche Ely
High School or BEHS.
And that's not all. Kyle says, "My
successes are walking around Pompa-
no Beach today. I'm proud of the fine
adults my students have become." She
names just a few, "There's Deacon

Community Park needs to be for

people, find dog park elsewhere

To the editor,

Because I am usually at Community Park in the mornings, I went by at 5
p.m. on Saturday, just to see who would be there later in the day.
The walkers/joggers were gone, the tennis courts and the aquatics center
were closed. However, the playground and picnic area was in full swing. All
six swings were being used, as was the slide. Some children were playing in the
sand by the slide with buckets, as if they were at the beach. Both picnic pavil-
ions were full and so was the picnic table on the grass near the start/finish point
of the walking/jogging trail.
Nearby some other folks were having a'picnic without a table. Some were
sitting on folding chairs, and some were sitting on the ground as they ate their
food. Just south of the playground, two or three boys were playing ball on the
grass, and there were also some ballplayers on the basketball court located to the
north of the playground.
When I looked at this scene, I tried to imagine the entire park being opened
to dogs on-leash in addition to the off-leash run area in what is now the open
space in the SE area of the park.
The city's point person on the dog park project has informed me that it is
likely that the No Pet restriction would be removed from the entire park if a dog
run is installed at Community Park, as proposed.
I think there will be some problems if dogs are brought into the playground
and picnic area, as well as onto the trail. Those who share my concern and want
the dog park located elsewhere in order to reserve Community Park as a People
Park are encouraged to attend the city commission meeting in the commission
chambers on the west side of City Hall at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 8. Please
wear a red shirt, so that you can be counted!

Dog run plans must be

comprehensive, tax payers should

not pay for its construction

To The editor,

There is a small group that would like Pompano Beach to build a 1.4 acre
dog run, and their leadership is demanding that it be placed in Community Park
at a cost of more then $50,000 of our tax dollars. Alternative locations have
been offered. The city has not asked for any community input and parks and
recreation has not held any community forums.
This concerns animals, and there has been no animal control input. It con-
cerns a park, and there has been no public comment from the parks and recre-
ation director.
It was reported at the last commission meeting that the parks and recreation
advisory board has recommended against the Community Park location. This
department is responsible for park content, planning, operation, and they have
been invisible. It has been the public works director in the forefront and his job
relative to parks is construction.
I have talked to joggers, and I have reliable reports from those who have
talked to tennis players. Many current users of Community Park have voiced
opposition to a dog run in Community Park. It will destroy the ambiance of
the park with its six foot high chain link fence and barking dogs. It will chase
the wildlife away from the storm water catch basin which fills with water and
attracts wild life every time it rains. I have also tried get the city to quantify the
number of concerts and other events that have been held in the proposed area
last year.
If these have to be canceled in the future, will we have to pay any penalties?
Where will these concerts and events go? We need answers.
We need a comprehensive plan. The plan should be provided by the group
requesting the dog run. Baltimore, Maryland has a good process and excerpts
follow.
Application Process:
The community or group which is interested in creating a dog run will for-
ward its written proposal to the parks and recreation department.
Parks and recreation will make a determination as to the feasibility of the
dog run using the criteria developed below.
Approved signs will be posted on the proposed location.
A Friends of the Dog Run organization shall be established with a 501 c sta-
tus. This committee will be responsible for raising funds and presenting a plan
for all aspects of maintenance of the run.
General Criteria for a Dog Run:
There will be a 200-foot minimum distance from any dog run to businesses,
residences and at 100-foot minimum distance from any bodies of water.
Dog runs will not be placed in any area where they will negatively impact
primary uses of the park.
Average estimated dog run size should be 1 to 15 acres.
A potable water source will be provided.
There must be a minimum of 6-foot high fencing separating the dog run into
two partitions. One partition is required for small and elderly dogs.
Rules and regulations will be posted outside of the dog run entrance.
Owners must register themselves and their dogs obtaining dog run tags for
each dog, show proof of liability insurance, and sign a hold harmless agreement.
Owners are legally responsible for their dogs and any injury or property
damage caused by their dogs.
Paid dog walkers, trainers and groomers shall not use the dog run.
Only two dogs will be allowed per registered owner at any one time.
Children under 10 years of age will not be permitted and children under 16
must be under the direct supervision of an adult parent or guardian.
Owners must clean up after their pets.
Dogs with a known history of dangerous behavior are prohibited.
Dogs must be vaccinated against distemper and parvovirus, and regularly
examined and treated for parasites.
Dogs must wear a collar with identification, current dog license, current
rabies tag and dog run tag at all times.
Puppies under four months of age are prohibited.
Dogs must be spayed or neutered.
Leaving dogs unattended is prohibited. Owners must closely supervise their
dogs at all times.
Owners must have a leash readily available at all times. Dogs shall be
leashed prior to entering and upon leaving the dog run.
If owner fails to provide water, the liability for pet health falls upon the
owner.
No food or treats or toys for dogs or humans.
Violation of any rule will result in the owner and dog being banned from the
dog run.
We will have serious budget constraints in the fiscal year beginning Oct. 1
and will need to carry over funds in order to reduce the pain of these constraints
in next year's budget. We need to fund this as Baltimore does. An expenditure
of taxpayer dollars for a dog run could mean the elimination of some vital ser-
vice or someone's job next year unless we follow Baltimore's path.

This effort needs to be funded by the dog run group as is
done elsewhere.
The group should raise half the funding and the city could
match the dollars. Give them six months to raise the funds and
when the fund raising is complete the dog run would be built.
The match dollars could be paid back through usage fees. Cur-
rently a resident golf membership is $1,100 for a family, $800
for an individual, or $32-35 for one round, and Little League is
$50 per player.
Let's do this right.
The dog run folks need to become a 501c group and pres-
ent a comprehensive plan to the city. After evaluation and
update by the Parks and Recreation department and advisory
board the plan needs to be presented to the community in a
forum at the civic center for public comment. Then revised
to take into consideration the public comment and presented
to the commission for insertion into the Capital Improvement
Projects.
Everyone is urged to contact their commissioner to keep
the- dog run out of Community Park and to request fiscal
responsibility. The commissioners addresses, email addresses,
and phone numbers are on the city web site at http://www.my-
pompanobeach.org/. Everyone is urged to attend the commis-
sion meeting on April 8 at 7 p.m. when this will be discussed
and approved or disapproved. Your support is requested. Stand
up and be counted.

Grand Court Village, an assisted living rental

community allows residents to 'age in place'


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
Step inside this gated, secured fa-
cility and a visitor is surrounded with
music and motion as Activity Direc-
tor Shula Serri leads a large group of
residents in morning exercise on one
side of the huge first floor. On the
other side, employees are getting the
dining room set up for lunch. Located
at 295 SW Fourth Ave. in Pompano

story building with two wings and an
outdoor courtyard. 125 residents live
in this facility that is licensed for a
capacity of 130.

the 'go-to girl.'
Mautner says, "Our assisted liv-

attributes her long and healthy
life to the fact that she never
smoked, nor drank the hard
stuff. Dressed impeccably,
she said her piece and walked
away quickly with the aid of a
walker.
Another happy resident
is Amy Toland who has lived
at Grand Court for two years.
She calls it "a loving place to
live. The people and the staff
are all loving. I'm a member
of the welcoming committee.
We see that new residents are
made welcome by including
them in everything. They're
never lonely here."
Grand Circle Village is
one of two properties owned
by a local Miami couple,
Judith and Arturo Godinez.
"These are active owners who
come in on a regular basis,"
Mautner says. "They make
time to visit with the residents
to be sure they are happy here.
They are very responsive to
suggestions and criticisms."
At the time of this inter-
view, Mary Buchanan, the
administrator of both Grand
Court Lakes in North Miami,
and this property was on had
to lend her expertise to Loma
Bushay, the new administra-
tor/ director of nursing for
Grand Court Village.
Buchanan said, "People

thing is wheel chair acces-

adds, "Financial assistance is
available through government

qualify for these programs."
Mautner is very enthu-

forget all of their cares when
they move in here. We of-

There are daily exercises,

Right now Grand Court

tory is so important to her,
Kyle says, "I want the cur-
rent young people to realize
how many generations before
them struggled to provide the
opportunities they often take
for granted. We performed
the Little Rock Nine for two
nights to audiences of at least
100 people each night.
"The participants and the
narrators, Purcel Houston,
another BEHS teacher and
Nia Maxfield, a high school
girl, all felt the play was a
learning experience for the


audience and the students.
There's always a Pompano
Beach historical aspect to our
plays which were performed
at the E. Pat Larkins Center
and the Mount Calvary Baptist
Church."
Kyle defines a good teach-
er. "You've got to love the
children, Black and White, and
you've got to love what you
do. Individual children will
always challenge you. Good
teachers find ways to reach
them. When you do, it is al-
ways rewarding to the student,
the teacher and the parents.
This is the key to cohesive
connection between parent and
teacher. Teach my child and


Dock Homs, DockoiniumOen rnIr et


teach him or her well, and I
will be a happy parent."
Kyle is active in Mount
Calvary Baptist church and
Alpha Kappa Alpha, the
sorority which she founded
in 1974. "It's still going
strong," she says. "We give
scholarships to deserving
students, sponsor cultural
community activities and
tutorial programs. "
Married to her high
school sweetheart Nicholas
E. Kyle for 56 years, Mary
and Nicholas have a daugh-
ter, a son, Nicholas, five
grandchildren and one great
grandchild.
Thank you, Mary Kyle,
for your contributions to the
community.


Rip Tide
Continued from page 1

Jean-Marc Bourgeois, the
tourist, was in cardiac ar-
rest, and two bystanders were
providing cardiopulmonary
resuscitation. Deputy Edward
Eason continued CPR until
Fire Rescue paramedics ar-
rived and began aggressive
resuscitative efforts, including
using the AutoPulse, a device
used to continue circulation
when the heart stops, accord-
ing to a BSO report.
"With continued advanced
life support treatment while
en route to Holy Cross Hos-
pital, paramedics successfully


restored pulses and blood pres-
sure to the victim," according
to the report. Bougeois is in
stable condition.
At about 3:30 p.m., wit-
nesses saw Bourgeois head
into the ocean after a young
boy, about 10 years of age,
who got caught in the under-
tow. Rip currents dragged
Bourgeois further out.
Two men on shore went
into the ocean and rescued
both swimmers. Throughout
the day Tuesday, Broward
Sheriff Fire Rescue crews
responded to numerous calls
of people caught in the rip cur-
rents, though no other injuries
were reported.

HILLSBORO BEACH MAYOR
The barefoot mail route
was so named because the
carriers walked barefoot on
the hard sand at the water's
edge. These men have come
to be known collectively as
the Barefoot Mailman. The
carriers' route was approxi-
mately 68 miles long-28
miles by small boat and 40
on foot along the beach.
Each Monday the
mailman would leave
Palm Beach, row a boat
to the foot of Lake Worth,
then walk five miles to the

house and entertainment.
"We have a mariachi band
and a group that sings Frank
.Sinatra and Elvis." said Shel-
don Gross, chairman of the
celebration and president of
Hillsboro Alliance Inc.
Lighthouse tours will be
continuous from 9 a.m. to
3:30 p.m.
The lighthouse was built
in 1901. Its light is considered


Refuge (established for
shipwrecked sailors) in
Delray Beach, where he

to be the most powerful light
in the world. Its beam can be
seen up to 28 miles out to sea.
Tours are limited to the first
200 guests. Tournaments will
run throughout the day.
The Barefoot Mailman
theme represents history
that is shared by many Flor-
ida communities, especially
Hillsboro Beach. Mail was
delivered down the Florida
coast by mailmen walking the
routes along the beach in the
1800s.
One mailman, James "Ed"
Hamilton, in 1885, died at the
Hillsboro Inlet in an attempt
to cross without his boat.

Lighthouse Point approves resolution to
regulate "breeds" of dogs allowed in city


By Maggie Davidson
PELICAN WRITER
At its March 25 meeting,
Lighthouse Point Commis-
sioners passed a resolution
supporting Florida House
of Representatives bill H.B.
101 which would allow local
municipalities to regulate
ownership of specific breeds
of dogs and called for greater
efforts to educate the public
about the dangers of vicious
dogs.
The resolution was
received right before the
meeting and was not included
in the commission's original
agenda or backup material.
Citing "a significant num-
ber of attacks by vicious dogs
which have resulted in the
severe injury or death of the
victims," the resolution was
passed four to one.
Commission Vice Presi-
dent Michael Long was the
lone dissenter. He said that
the commission had just
gotten the resolution, that it
was a knee-jerk reaction; and
they need time to consider the
resolution.
City to get $100,000
for emergency use
In other business, com-
missioners passed a resolu-


tion to enter into an agree-
ment with Broward County to
receive $100,000 to upgrade
its Emergency Operations
Center. The funds are part of
grant monies provided by the
US Department of Homeland
Security to municipalities des-
ignated as high threat urban
areas to prepare for a terrorist
event. The equipment to be
purchased for the city's EOC
will enable the city to provide
services and maintain com-
munications with the Broward
County Emergency Manage-


ment Office during crisis
situations, including terrorist
attacks or natural disasters.

Home cooks are now discovering a thou-
sand-year-old "secret" ingredient- the
wonderfid flavor and versatility of Grana
Padano, a well-loved cheese from Italy.
Grana Padano is a 100 percent cow's
milk cheese. Its sweet, delicate flavor is
delicious on its own or paired with other
'V foods.
Like the best Italian chefs, you can use
Grana Padano in many different ways:
as aflavorfid accompaniment to wine
or fruit; crumbled in pieces alongside a
stew; shaved over salads; grated over
,soup, pasta or risotto; or simply, on its
own. Now, that's Italian!
For more information visit www.Grana-
Padano.com.
''A Thousand Years in Every Bite
A thousand years ago in the fertile Po
Valley in northern Italy, Cistercian monks
Sunlocked the secret to Grana Padano.
." "" In order to preserve milk surpluses, the
monks devised a dynamic preserva-
tion process that produced this hard
cheese. The process used to make Grana
Padano which involved heating milk
in large copper vats and then pressing it
.. into round wooden molds is the same
process used today, a testament to how
"authentic Grana Padano has withstood
the test of time.
What Does P.D.O. Mean?
Grana Padano is a Protected Des-
ignation of Origin (P.D.O.) cheese.
This classification by the European
._-/ 'a.' r.iy_/ / -" Union ensures that products are
enuinely originated from a certain
region and follow a high standard
of production. The Consorzio
Tutela Grana Padano, a consortium
'.., ~of producers, maturers and retailers,
supervises the production of Grana
.. .Padano, protecting the quality of
*ingredients and the authentic produc-
tion method of its members. Grana
..Padano is the best selling P.D.O.
cheese in the world.
The Goodness of Grana Padano
Made with naturally semi-skimmed
S* milk, Grana Padano is an excellent
.source of protein and key minerals,
such as calcium, magnesium, copper
.~ and zinc, and vitamins such as A,
2 ~ 0 / 'B and E. Just 25g of Grana Padano

Deerfield Beach commission

asked to consider being

proactive on foreclosures


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Concerned that home
foreclosures will blight his
neighborhood, Deer Isle As-
sociation president Bill Ganz
asked Tuesday that the com-
mission consider passing an
ordinance that would register
such properties and require
them to be maintained.
Ganz cited a Property
Restoration Ordinance en-
acted in a California city as
his model.
Foreclosures statewide are
up 70 percent Ganz said and
so far this year, 214 residenc-
es in Deerfield Beach have
gone into foreclosure up from
31 in 2006.
Abandoned homes have
a domino effect on a neigh-
borhood Ganz argued. They
discourage buyers, are public
nuisances, and discount prop-
erty values. They are a burden
to code enforcement, police
departments and homeowner
associations.
The California ordinance

requires the lender of a home
in default to register it with
the city, make regular inspec-
tions and hire a property
management company to
maintain it. Heavy fines are
imposed if the ordinance is
ignored.
Ganz urged the commis-
sion to be proactive on the
matter and District 4. Com-
missioner Steve Gonot asked
the city attorney to research
the California ordinance.

Board

appointments
Continued from page 1

As a result, "It didn't
give us a chance to review
everyone selected," Mayor
Roseann Minnet said later.
"The town manager did a
wonderful job of putting
a whole book together (on
those who had applied.)
Staff and I were surprised
we didn't have applications
for some of those appoint-
ed. We have procedure in
place. It would be nice to
follow it," she said.
In the past, the proce-
dure has been that each
commissioner would make
a nomination, and if it
were seconded, the nomi-
nation was voted on. If
not, they went on to the
next commissioner, Minnet
explained. Applications
were submitted ahead of
time.
That procedure is not
spelled out in the town


charter. "We can review
the procedure. I'm going
by the consensus of the
commission, and we just
move forward," Minnet
said.
The commission named
five members to the Plan-
ning and Zoning Board.
They are: Alfred Oldaker,
Cristie Furth, Lawrence
"Peanuts" Wick, Arthur
Franczak and William
Hubly. Wick was named
chairman and Furth, vice
chairman. Alternates are
Bridget Ryder and George
Hunsaker.
Minnet's nomination to
the board, Brendan Barry,
was not seconded. He was
recently elected to the
board of the North Beach
Civic Association.
Named to the Master
Plan Steering Committee
were Joe Guerrero, San-
dra Booth, Russ LaScala,
Marilyn Carr and Paul No-
vak. The vote was 3-2 with
Vice Mayor Jerry McIntee
and Commissioner Jim Sil-


verstone voting no on
Booth, the mayor's
nominee. Booth previously
chaired the committee.
McIntee said he
couldn't support Booth
because "she let a subordi-
nate hang" when Marilyn
Carr was removed from the
board last year.
Alternates selected were
Mary Ann Wardlaw and
Shevahn Steward-Kuhn.
Named to the board of
adjustment were Thomas
Carr, Joseph Couriel, Re-
nee O'Neal, George Cross-
man and James Pollack.
Minnet's nomination of
Susie Glenn was not sec-
onded. Alternates are Dave
Gadsby and Gail Schwartz.
Only three candidates
had applied for the board
of adjustment.
Named to the Walk-
Around-Committee were
Maria Prunskis, Amy
Appold, Sam Patti, Lisa
Mitchell and Shirley Rus-
sotti.

Barefoot

Mailman
Continued from page 11
would spend the night. The
next day he walked 25 miles,
crossing the Hillsboro Inlet
by row boat, then traveled on
to the New River House of
Refuge in Fort Lauderdale,
where he spent the night.
On the following day he
would row a boat four miles,
down to the south side of the
New River Inlet, take to the
beach again for ten miles of
beach walking, thus reach-
ing Baker's Haulover at
the head of Biscayne Bay.


Twelve miles down the bay,
a rowboat would take him
to the post office at Miami.
He would spend the night in
Miami, leave the next morn-
ing and return to Palm Beach
by Saturday afternoon.
One might wonder how
the mailman could ensure
having a row boat each time
he had to traverse a waterway.
He didn't drag one behind
him, you can be sure. At each
water crossing, a boat was
always waiting where the
carrier had left it. At that time
there was a strict, unwritten
code against taking someone's
boat and leaving it on the op-
posite shore. In South Florida


such an act was comparable
to stealing a horse in the Old
West.
The week-long route was
a great improvement over the
mail route available before
1895. Prior to that year, a let-
ter from Palm Beach to Miami
began its trip at the lighthouse
community of Jupiter, 22
miles north, then by an Indian
River steamboat to the rail
head at Titusville. By train it
continued to New York's port
and from there by steamer to
Havana. From Cuba, a trading
schooner took the letter to
Miami.
When the United States
Post Office decided to im-
prove its Florida service in
1885 by establishing the bare-
foot route, it was a welcome
decision.
When the job was put
out to bid, one of the men
interested in the route was
Lake Worth resident, Edward
Ruthven Bradley, a retired
Chicago newsman who later
became Dade County School
Superintendent. Bradley won
the contract, which called for
one round trip per week for
the salary of $600 per year.
The job was very demand-
ing, but he and his eldest son,
Louie, took turns carrying the
mail for about two years.
The Bradleys gave up the
contract in early 1887 and the
Matthaus brothers, Frederick
and Otto, took over. They also


hired other men to carry mail
along the beach route. One of
these men was James E. "Ed"
Hamilton, who had come to
Hypoluxo Island from Trigg
County, Kentucky.
On Oct. 10,-1887, Ed ar-
rived in Hypoluxo with the
mail pouch from Palm Beach,-
having rowed ten miles in his
small skiff. Although he men-
tioned that we was not feeling
well, he insisted on continuing
his trip. Due back on Saturday
afternoon, he did not return.
Suspicion focused on a
stranger noticed by Charles
Coman, the keeper at the Fort
Lauderdale Station (New
River House of Refuge). Co-
man had heard the stranger
coming from the beach, hav-
ing arrived from the north.
When the station keeper asked
the stranger how he crossed
the inlet, the reply was that
a party of hunters at the inlet
brought him across in their
portable boat.
Two of Hamilton's friends,
Louie Bradley and Charles
Pierce, came down by boat,
a 21-mile trip, to follow
the route and search for the
missing mailman. When they
arrived at Hillsboro Inlet, the
boat Hamilton would have
usedlhad disappeared. His .
mail pouch, trousers and shirt
were hanging on the limb
of a tree. They also found a
spoon and a bottle of pain
killer, and near the edge of the


water were Hamilton's under-
clothes, showing that he had
left them to swim the inlet.
The indication was very plain
that he had seen his boat on
the other side of the inlet and
had plunged into the water to
retrieve it.
To Hamilton's friends, the
possibility of his drowning
was out of the question, for
he was an excellent swimmer
and the current at this spot
was not very strong. There
were sharks there at that time
of year, but there was no sign
of any when the search was
taking place. There were,
however, numerous alligator
tracks. The place was swarm-
ing with them. Even an excel-
lent swimmer might not have
escaped them.
The stranger whom Co-
man had suspected of foul
play was later charged with
tampering with government
property and was tried in
Federal Court in Jacksonville.
He was acquitted. His name
was never entered in the court
records.
The barefoot route contin-
ued until 1892 when a rock
road was completed from Ju-
piter to Miami. The Bay Bis-
cayne Stage Line took over
the mail contract at that time.
Henry John Burkhardt, who
settled at Hillsboro Inlet in
1891, was the last of the bare-
foot mailmen.
