Pompano adds

three questions

to November

ballot
By Joe Hartmann
PELICAN STAFF
Pompano Beach voters now will
decide the fate of at least three charter
amendment questions when they go to
the polls in November.
The Pompano Beach City Com-
mission voted Tuesday 4-1, with
George Brummer dissenting, to place
an amendment before the voters that
would move city municipal elections
from March to November in even-
numbered years, which coincides with
state and federal elections.
The amendment would also
change the term of the mayor from
three to four years so the position
would remain on the same even year
-cycle as the commission.
The charter amendment proposal
has gained momentum among the
commission for economic reasons and
the possibility of higher voter turnouts
if the municipal elections were held
in conjunction with state and federal
elections.
The adjustment in the election
cycle would begin with the municipal

Call is out to sailors and captains of all vessels

for the First Annual Blessing of the Fleet, May 24

Ancient European tradition of the sea makes its way to Pompano Beach

By Anne Sirefi I : 1


PELICAN STAFF
Down in the swamps of Louisiana
in the small town of Chauvin, fisher-
men have been lining up their boats
since 1920 for the annual Blessing of
the Fleet. Mainly shrimp boats, these
fishermen pass in review on the bayou
by St. Joseph's Catholic Church. As
they parade before the priest and his
entourage, the shrimp seekers and all
aboard kneel for the blessing.
And then they "let the good times
roll" with music, food, mainly shrimp,
and lots of dancing.
On May 25, St. Martin's Episcopal
Church, 140 SE 28 Ave., Pompano

Group meets to

promote scenic

highway along

A1A in Broward

By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
Drive along the mountains of
North Carolina, and visitors see signs
offering routes to the scenic highways,
offering more than the blur of turn-
pike-like views of rushing trees and
food/gas exit signs.
Now, South Florida is on the way
to naming AIA on the scenic highway
designation.
Scenic highways are often avail-
able for state funding, preservation
guidelines and other advantages that
protect the roads from unnecessary
signage and other items that contribute
to blight.
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea was the
setting recently for the latest meeting

City manager wants
commission to reconsider golf
course purchase price
By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
A special city commission meet-'
ing to establish a purchase price for
the 100-acre Tam 0' Shanter Golf
Course will be held Tuesday, April 29,
following an equally weighty Commu-
nity Redevelopment Agency, or CRA,
session at 6 p.m. that will address the
Hillsboro Boulevard beautification
project and the A1A "S" curve.
Tam O'Shanter owners agreed to
table a hearing last week on their ap-
plication to convert the old golf course
into a water park if the city would
seek funds to buy the property. The
figure mentioned was $10 million,
and the commission discussed tapping
Florida Forever and Broward County
funds to finance the deal.

Scenic

highway
Continued from page 1

of the State Road A1A Scenic
Highway Corridor Advocacy
Group, or CAG.
The group is hoping to get
the corridor designated as a
Florida scenic highway. They
are looking for community
support.
The Florida Scenic High-
ways Program was developed
"to preserve, maintain, protect
and enhance Florida's out-
standing cultural, historical,
archeological, recreational,
natural and scenic resources,"
according to a program bro-
chure.
After seven years, CAG
has eligibility status and is
now at work on the designa-
tion phase, during which
grants can be applied for.
"What a beautiful way to
highlight the barrier island,"
said John Rude, who presided
at the meeting at Jarvis Hall.
Now the group needs a
committee to continue the
steps. Rude said. "You don't
have to give up your day job."
Mayor Roseann Minnet
of LBTS suggested the group
designate a liaison to each
of the nine cities involved in
order to get concerns ad-
dressed more quickly. And she
said those attending Broward
Days in Tallahassee this week
could mention the program to
legislators. Minnet said she
supports the program. The
liaison group will identify
funds available for towns
along the scenic corridor.
"I can't find a down
side of this," said Brenda
Chalifour, an environmental
attorney, urging others to get
involved.
"It makes no sense not
to take advantage of these
[grant] dollars," said Diane
Boutin, general manager of
the Windjammer Resort in
LBTS.
-Boutin volunteered to
be assistant secretary to the
CAG.
"This was a project near
and dear to Laura Ward's
heart, and she had been work-
ing on it for many years,"
Boutin said. The late Ward
once served as assistant town
manager in LBTS.
Fort Lauderdale resident
Art Seitz called the news a
"great way to enhance and
preserve the barrier island."
Rude added, "This is a
great way to bring money
back to the region, There's
nothing wrong with putting
more money into the beauti-
fication of A1A. We need to
accentuate tourism and keep
the tourists coming. The more
we can beautify the A1A cor-
ridor, the more we can encour-
age tourists to come back and


keep it green."
Rude said the corridor
management entity aims to
have at least one voting mem-
ber from each of the nine cit-
ies along the corridor, which
extends from Hallandale
Beach to Hillsboro Beach.
Hillsboro Beach Com-
missioner Celinda Sawtelle
asked about state funding of
the project.
Beatrisz Alvarez of Flori-
da Department of Transporta-
tion said, "A certain percent-
age of highway funds will be
designated for beautification.
projects."
She said 1.5 percent of
construction budgets must be
spent on landscaping.
John Olinzock, assis-
tant to the town manager in
LBTS, noted that when the
group achieved its eligibility
status, the state found they
had a great deal of govern-
ment involvement but little
citizen involvement. "The


state wants to know that busi-
nesses and .citizens want this
designation,"he said.
Beth Willett of Deerfield
Beach, a member of the origi-
nal Save Our Beaches group
in that city, said letters of
support are needed from civic.
groups.
"With your letters, you
will become part of an army,"
Chalifour said. "When our ap-
plication is in, we will flood
Tallahassee with emails."
She said LBTS has taken
the lead role in going to the
grassroots. The plan is to go
to all nine cities to build nine
armies. "We will round up
foot soldiers and get the army
going."
Commissioners Stuart
Dodd and Birute Clottey from
LBTS also attended the meet-
ing.
Dodd called the venture
"terrific."

Youngsters to
By Maggie Davidson
PELICAN WRITER
The Doreen Gauthier
Lighthouse Point Library
has teamed up with Mad
Science to present CSI in its
summer program. Children
ages from 7 to 12 will walk
into a "secret agent lab"
where they will learn about
crime scene investigations,
just like the CSI television
program. The library's
summer program runs from


turn detectives at CSI library camp in Lighthouse Point


June 9 to June 13.
The week-long camp
begins with "Discover De-
tection" where students will
gather, analyze and observe
evidence in a crime scene.
They will work with an
Inspection Kit and Finger-
print Finder.. There will be
a special presentation by
McCarthy's Wild Animal
Refuge.
Young detectives will
focus on forensics where
they will use a Case Stamp-


er and Spynoculars to learn
how to track and read clues.
On day three, students
will study the "Science of
Security" to study smart
ways of performing tasks
and how to use Spyglasses
for surveillance.
On day four, students
will become science sleuths
and use the Scene Solver
and Whodunit Kit to recon-
struct a crime scene.
On the last day, stu-
dents will use a Secret Code


Breaker to create codes and
secret messages. This is also
graduation day from Spy
Academy with a celebration
starring Bobby the Balloon
Guy. Children get to put.
their powers of imagination
and observation to work to
solve "crimes" and learn
scientific principles at the
same time.
This year's CSI pro-
gram is the second summer
camp that Mad Science has
brought to the library. Two


U U


years ago, the camp took
students into a NASA Camp.
Library Director Doreen
Gauthier, is "very enthusias-
tic" about Mad Science and
the quality programs they
offer for children.
Mad Science, a Coral
Springs company, special-
izes in providing science
experiences for children.
The company offers a wide
range of services which
include the NASA Academy
of Future Space Explorers.
Children must have


completed kindergarten. The
program is limited to the
first 100 campers.
Registration is open
May 5 to May 10. The cost
is $160 per child. Children
H R Tare asked to bring their
lunches each day. Drinks
will be provided. Call 954-

Deerfield Beach will host a free

It's all about education when it comes to doing the smart thing. First we .
learned to stop throwing our trash from car windows along the highways in the
50s. We learned to wear seat belts. We adjusted to 55 mph on the highways, and
we learned to recycle plastic, newspapers and glass containers.
Now Deerfield Beach is offering a free public workshop, Apple Core to
Healthy Soil: Recycling Organic Waste.
The workshops will take place from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and again from 6:30
to 8 p.m. at the Deerfield Beach Public Works Facility, 401 SW 4 St., Deerfield
Beach, in the second floor conference room. '
Participants should bring kitchen scraps from home as part of the hands-on
learning experience. Attendees will be eligible to win a free compost bin as a
door prize.
It is amazing how we can keep learning ways to protect the environment, and'
even these small efforts begin to grow and create a positive force among other
people.
We believe change comes from grassroots movements, and we have seen this *.

He continued, "This is
our first effort, and if it's a
success, we hope to make it
an annual event so that we
can continue to support our
vets and their families in need
when time has passed and
they are forgotten by the gov-
ernment and veteran services.
My committee of tireless
workers are all volunteers."
He ticked off names
of the men on his commit-
tee: "Our treasurer, Charles
Fisher, is handling the funds.
Don Stefanko is rounding up
police volunteers. Ernie Lee
is coordinating police and
fire services for the picnic.
Gary Nierko is in charge of
the ground crew. The Marine
Corps League is donating the
Color Guard. Earl Wagoner is
donating the colorful printed


posters and liquid refresh-
ments. And Marie Alicata, our
talented and reliable volunteer
musician, is donating a one-
hour performance. We hope
other musicians will follow
her lead and donate one hour
gigs too."
So far, Pastor has received
about $1,800 in cash dona-
tions. Many Elks Lodges have
donated $150 each. Pompano
Beach Elks donated $500.
American Legion Posts are
donating $100 each. Pastor
hopes the purveyors of food,
beer and soda will make tax
deductible donations or offer
breaks on food and beverages..
A retired high school
teacher from Valley Stream,
Long Island, New York, Pas-
tor works nonstop for many
good causes in addition to this

Pastor explains. "The

tried to pay back throughout
my life."

Charter
amendments
Continued from page 1
elections of 2012.
It is estimated that munici-
pal elections, held in March,
cost the city in excess of
$140,000.
"This is long overdue,"
Mayor Lamar Fisher said. "It
will ensure better voter turnout
and save the city money as
well."
"We have to think about
the money that we don't have
to spend," Charlotte Burrie
said. "Anything we can do in
these tight budget times that
can save money is welcomed."
Brummer countered that
he opposed the amendment for
several reasons.


"This will save money.
But sometimes it should not
be about money," Brummer
said. "If we tie the municipal
elections to the federal, state
and county races, we are go-
ing to move to the bottom of
the barrel on getting exposure
for the city races. It also is
going to hurt candidates and
their efforts to get campaign
contributions when other can-
didates will have their hands
out at the same time."
The second amendment
focuses on how the city
handles the event of a may-
or's inability to complete his
or her term.
Brummer made the sug-
gestion that the charter should
be amended by removing a
line that calls for the commis-
sion vote to fill the vacancy

Brummer said the word-

when the mayor was not an
independent elected position,
but was chosen among sitting
commissioners.
"Now that we have a
mayor [elected at large], we -
need to make this minor ad-
justment," Brummer said.
If approved, the charter,
would call for the Vice Mayor
to serve as acting mayor until
the next municipal election to
fill the vacancy.
Earlier this year, in
March, the commission voted
to place a charter amendment
on the ballot that would en-

Window Man of South Florida offers professional

impact window sales, installation and repair


By Phyllis J., Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
Owner of Window Man, Jimmy
Von Wyl, says, "The time to install
impact windows and doors is now
before the hurricane season which be-
gins in June and lasts until November.
We estimate about four weeks from
order to installation."
Von Wyl's company services the
tri-county area. He and his sales team
do free consultations and estimates.
Licensed and insured professionals do
the installation.
"Most of our business comes from
satisfied customers," he says.
"We are state licensed, insured
and a member of the Better Business
Bureau and authorized dealers for
PGT, WinDoor and Signature Doors.
Since I have owned this company,
we have never had a complaint filed.
We're dedicated to earning trust from
out clients. We do that by rendering
the best service possible and deliver-
ing on time. We also handle all of the
permitting which can be both time-
consuming and irritating to homeown-
ers."
Jerry Miller, Pompano Yacht and
Beach Club, says "If you want the job
done right, he's the man to call. Win-
dow Man has done over half of our
units. He has been consistently neat,
clean, always calls back and is really
reliable."
Patty Bendit of Lighthouse Point
gives Window Man a glowing report.
"I've had so many service people
disappoint me and rip me off," she
says, "but Jimmy was always on time,
neat, clean and did excellent quailty
work. I have an old house. He did a
remarkable job on all of my windows.

In accordance with the Miami
Dade County Building Codes,
our products have been tested
and approved to withstand
wind gusts up to 140 miles
per hour," he explains and is
quick to list the advantages of
impact glass.
He adds, "Our windows
offer the same protection as
shutters plus many advan-
tages. When bad weather is
forecast, there's no need to
shutter the home in darkness.
Impact products not only
enhance the value of a home,
they also provide increased
energy efficiency and property
security. UV rays are reduced
by 99 percent even without
tinting. That means window
treatments, fabrics on furni-
ture and carpeting will not
fade. More advantages include
noise reduction and increased
security."
Von Wyl claims that even
if the windows or doors are
smashed by violence, they
cannot be penetrated because
of a plastic inner layer. "I've
seen videos of the many con-
ditions that can occur, and the
performance of impact glass
is impressive," he adds. "The
State of Florida encourages
impact products. It provides
grants to homeowners, based
upon the insured value of the
residence. My Safe Florida
Home program gives home
owners the opportunity for
shared costs of installation.
Go to mysafefloridahome.com
for information. We are on
their list of approved provid-
ers."
Window Man does resi-
dential and condo windows.
To be completely secure,
every opening should be
secured with impact resistant
products. The cost depends
upon the size, style and num-
ber of openings. An in-person
consult is necessary for an
accurate estimate to meet the
client's requirements.

S .
LaMarca
The Republican party of
Broward County has named
Lighthouse Point Commis-
sioner Chip La Marca as a
delegate to the 2008 Republi-
can convention this September
to be held in Minneapolis.
While Republicans have
a clear candidate in John
McCain, Democrats are still
wavering between Hillary
Clinton and Barack Obama.
In District 22, LaMarca,
who chairs the Republican


party in Broward County, says
the rules for seating delegates
are still not clear and may
change,
When Florida held its
primary earlier than the New
Hampshire primary, both
national parties threatened to
take away the rights of Florida
delegates to vote on the floor
of the convention.
Since then the Republican
party has conceded 50 percent
of delegates voting rights at
the convention.
-Democrats are waiting for
a final edict from the national
party.
LaMarca says all 114
Republican delegates will
go to the convention, and he
says it's possible all could be
seated for the vote. Named as
alternate delegates were Cin-
dy Guerra, vice chair of the

renovations of the Away Inn,
a boutique-hotel located in

includes exterior and interior
improvements to guest rooms,
public areas and the overall

one of the many properties
spearheading the city's efforts-
to revitalize Lauderdale-By-

"Because the hotel at-
tracts many returning Europe-


an visitors, it was imperative
to maintain operations of the
hotel throughout the renova-
tion," said Bill Davis, partner
in Ocean Equities, LLC, the
hotel's ownership entity, and
general manager of the Away
Inn.
Improvements to the
guest accommodations in-
clude the installation of crown
molding; granite countertops
and stainless steel appliances;
flat panel, high-definition
televisions; newly designed
lighting fixtures; wall and
floor coverings; security door
locks; Travertine window
sills; two-panel solid core

Pompano Beach Vice Mayor E. Pat Larkins remains unable to attend

commission meetings, commission may hold special election to fill seat


By Joe Hartmann
PELICAN STAFF
The end of a 25-year
period of service to the city
could come sooner than ex-
pected as the Pompano Beach
City Commission addressed
the situation of Vice Mayor


and District 4 Commissioner E.
Pat Larkins.
The commission voted 5-0
to excuse two of the four con-
secutive absences by Larkins
over the past two months, due
to extended illness.
Larkins, currently under
care at North Broward Hospital

and unavailable for comment,
has not been to a commission
session since Feb. 26.
He has been in and out
of the hospital several times
since having a brain tumor
removed in November.
The city charter provides
that members of the city
commission shall be disquali-
fied to continue in office if
absent from four consecutive
meetings unless excused by
commission resolution.


This week the commis-
sion discussed a resolution
that would excuse Larkins
from four absences.
It was amended to two
excused absences from a mo-
tion by Commissioner Barry
Dockswell and approved 4-1,
Commissioner George Brum-
mer dissenting.
City Manager Keith
Chadwell will meet with Lar-
kins and ask what his plans
are for the commission.

Larkins indicated in
March this would be his final
term in office and would not
be seeking re-election.
But several residents, in-
cluding Woodrow Poitier and
Vincente Thrower, both of
Larkins' District 4, said they
felt the commission should
act to fill Larkins' seat in a
special election.
"We need to have a
representative on the commis-
sion," Poitier said. "I believe
Mr. Larkins would want the
process to play out."
Poitier, a close friend and
regular visitor to Larkins,
who is now undergoing reha-
bilition, spoke with Larkins
recently.
"I saw last him week
and told him I would file for
the seat. Larkins told me 'to

make it happen.'"
Poitier added that Larkins
had wanted to keep his seat
through September to avoid
the cost of a special election.
Mayor Lamar Fisher re-
sponded, "I am elected by all
the people, and I will repre-
sent the people of District 4 to
the best of my ability."
Willie Lawson, presi-
dent of the North Broward
NAACP, said the commission
would be right in excusing the
absences.
"Pat Larkins has given
this city 25 years of service,"
Lawson said. "The city ex-
cused absences for Commis-
sioner Herb Skolnick when he
was sick. I submit we should
treat Pat Larkins the same
way. Let's not kick him out
when he's down and out."
Gordon Linn, city attor-
ney, said that if a special elec-
tion were necessary, it could
be scheduled to coincide with
the primary election to be
held August 26.
"In order to have things
finalized," Linn said. "We
would need a 90-day window
to host an election then."

New water

restrictions
'set for

two-day

irrigations
Modifications to the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District's emergency
water restrictions became
effective April 18, allowing
two-day-a-week landscape
watering for Pompano Beach.
Odd street addresses may-
irrigate lawns and landscapes
on Wednesday and Saturdays
from 12 a.m. to 10 a.m. and/
or 4 p.m. to 11:59 p.m.
Even street addresses may
irrigate lawns and landscapes
on Thursday and Sundays
from 12 a.m. to 10 a.m. and/
or 4 p.m. to 11:59 p.m.
Hand-watering with one
hose fitted with an automatic
shut-off nozzle is allowed
for 10 minutes per day for
landscape stress relief and to
prevent plant die-off. Ad-
ditional watering days and
times are allocated for the
establishment of new lawns
and landscapes.
No restrictions apply to
other outside water uses, such
as for car and boat washing.
Landscape irrigation
using 100-percent reclaimed
water is allowed any day
except Friday, from 12 a.m. to
10 a.m. and/or from 4 p.m. to
11:59 p.m.

O'Shanter


Continued from page 1
Mahaney said he thought
the figure was too high. He
declined to reveal his calcula-
tions until he could inform
commissioners, but he said
publicly, the city would apply
in May to Florida Forever for
$6 million to acquire the land
and then would have to go
to the county for another $6
million to build and outfit a
public park.
"We are in desperate need
of parks," the city manager
said.
Residents of Crystal
Lake whose homes abut Tam
O'Shanter have been asking
the city for years to purchase
the property and operate the
golf course in order to stave
off residential development
there. They oppose Crystal
Lake Golf Club LLC's plans
for a water park saying dig-
ging two, 25-foot lakes as has
been proposed constitutes a
mining operation.
Lawsuit averted
Last Tuesday when the
commission agreed to delay
the Tam O'Shanter hearing for
six months while city officials
sought funding sources, they
also sidestepped a potential
lawsuit. The attorney for
Crystal Lake Golf Club LLC,
Beth-Ann Krimsky told com-
missioners that if her clients
failed to get approval to exca-
vate two lakes on the property,
a lawsuit would follow.
The land is zoned for
commercial recreation, and
its owners want to excavate
three million cubic yards of
fill over a period of five years.
With that phase of the plan


complete, the lakes would be
suitable for sailboats, small
motor boats and cable skiing.
The issue filled the com-
mission chamber with op-
ponents of the proposal and
placed political rivals Mayor
Al Capellini and District 4
Commissioner Steve Gonot
on the same side. Both said
the public should have their
say. The people, they pointed
out, had come to two previ-
ous meetings hoping to speak,
only to have the hearing
tabled.
CRA agenda
At least two major street
projects will be discussed at
the CRA meeting. Mahaney
said he believes there is mon-
ey in the CRA account to go
forward with all improvements
to Hillsboro Boulevard, from
Federal Highway to A1A.
The project involves burying
power lines, resurfacing the
street, pavers, lighting, land-
scaping, and a bid has been

since the project was initiated
more than five years ago,
there were fears it could not
be completed as envisioned.
Funding for the $12 million
project will come from the
Florida Municipal Loan Fund

major reconfiguration of the

environmental study because
federal dollars are involved.
Several years ago, consul-

portion of AlA on NE Second

Astronaut Buzz Aldrin shares story at


Broward Housing Solutions event


SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN
Astronaut Dr. Buzz Aldrin
shared his historic Apollo XI
moon walk experience as well
as his struggle with debilitat-
ing depression and alcoholism
with 250 guests at a recent
fundraiser for Broward Hous-
ing Solutions, or BHS.
BHS, a company that
assists people with mental
illness by providing affordable
housing opportunities, hosted
the 'Moonwalkin' with Buzz,'
event at the Fort Lauderdale
Grande Hotel and Spa.
The emcee for the fourth
year was WPLG Local 10
Sports Anchor John Henry
Smith.
"It was an amazing experi-
ence to meet Dr. Aldrin and
for him to share his story with
us," said Barbara Capeletti of
Aspen Luxury Motors, who
co-chair the event with Sandy
Brittain of Prudential Florida
1st Realty. "Dr. Aldrin's expe-
rience illustrates that mental
illness can affect anyone, irre-


spective of their background,
education, station in life or
even level of fame."
In addition to Aldrin's
compelling speech, a second
highlight of the evening was
the recognition of Nancy
Merolla, who served as presi-
dent and CEO of Broward
Housing Solutions for eight
years in addition to serving
on the board of directors for
five years. Honorary Chair
Broward County Commis-
sioner Diana Wasserman-Ru-
bin presented a special award
to Merolla.
"During Nancy's tenure
with this organization, she
increased the number of prop-
erties the organization owns,

are selling everything at
discount prices, and the doors
keep swinging open with
more business.
Most customers are thank-
ing them for the years of good
help and expressing their
regret that the store is finally
closing its doors.
"Hate to see you go," says
one customer with an armful
of supplies.
The conversation repeats
itself all day with "goodbyes,
thanks and a lot of sadness."
Art says he already misses
his customers, saying he's
made longtime friends over
the years. But a pragmatic
man, he sees the inevitability
of the move.
"Yes," he says. "I'll miss
people coming in with prob-
lems. We could fix them. It's
been a great business. Now
everything is in demand. Our
gifts are selling well."


Dodie's grandson runs
behind the counter making
Donald Duck sounds. She
laughs. She says the hardware
store served as after school
care for all of her grand'chil-
dren. "I baby sit them while I
run the store," she says.
When national companies
like Staples and Home Depot
arrived on the scene, Art says
his business felt the pinch
with customers seeking better
prices in larger stores, but he
explains it was a false percep-
tion of better deals.
"One of my customers
came in with a package of
screws from Home Depot.
They only had one pack-
age and the guy needed four
more screws to finish the job.
The package of four screws
cost over two dollars. I had
the same ones. Ours were 17
cents each," he said.
Art may be retiring from
the hardware business, but
as public works director of
Lighthouse Point, he won't be

going into retirement yet.
And neither will Cobb
who has been with Simon's


for seven years. Cobb is 90,
and he'll be moving on to
another job.


Myers jumps into the con-
versation and says Cobb had
been a carpenter on Noah's
Ark. He and Cobb laugh a bit.
Myers says, "You can see we
have a good time here."
Nickless, whose expertise
was electricity, says he helped
people repair appliances every
day. He says people feel good
when they can fix something
instead of buying a new ap-
pliance.
Simons Hardware was
filled with strong emotions
this day. Long time patrons
will miss much more than a
hardware store, they will miss
the people who made it so
helpful.
Art had hoped to sell the
business, and he says that's
still an option, but any pro-
spective buyer has only a few
days left to make an offer.
Simons Hardware will
continue its "Going out of
Business" sale until the last
items, including the fixtures,
are gone.

Picnic Time!


Whether it's a picnic at the beach
or lake, in the backyard or the park,
food just tastes better outdoors. So,
pack up and enjoy!
This trio of chilled salads is welcome
warm-weather fare and offers
something for everyone ... a German
potato salad and steak duo; Greek-
inspired beets and shrimp; and a
layered bean salad with a Tex-Mex
twist. Just add crusty bread and
favorite beverages, and off you go!
For dessert, it's home-baked brown-
ies and fresh fruit from the farmers
market. Moist and chocolaty brown-
ies are made with a mix and two
surprise ingredients: chipotle chile
powder imparts subtle heat,, and
pickled beets make them extra moist
and flavorful.

Picnic Primer
Make It Easy & Safe
-High quality prepared foods streamline
prep time. Canned salads like German
potato salad and three bean salad, plus
pickled beets packed in jars, provide a
delicious head start to the salad trio. For
a spur of the moment picnic (or a quick
meal accompaniment), don't forget they
are ready to eat ... just open the can or jar.
-Pack foods in containers with tight-fit-
ting lids or in sealable storage bags. For
transporting the Steak & German Potato
Salad, pack the steak strips and potato
salad separately, then combine when it's
time to top the packaged greens.
-Separate containers of avocado and tor-
tilla chips can be added to the Tex-Mex
Layered Bean Salad just before tossing.
Pack the dressing for Greek-Style Beet
Salad in a separate container for easy
drizzling at serving time.
-Use plenty of frozen gel packs or ice in
coolers or picnic baskets, and keep them
in the shade whenever possible; open
only when necessary.
-Return food to the cooler quickly after
eating, within one hour, or less time, if
you are in the sun.
-Visit www.senecafoods.com for addi-
tional recipes and serving suggestions.

Pompano Chamber, city agree to stop sale of chamber building,

money escrowed for sale will return to city coffers with interest


By Joe Hartmann
PELICAN STAFF
A sale between the city
and the Pompano Beach
Chamber of Commerce for
the chamber building, 2200
E. Atlantic Blvd., fell through
this week nearly two years
after the deal was supposedly
sealed.
The city had agreed to
buy the chamber building for
$450,000 in exchange for a
city-owned building at 102
SW 2 St., just east of city
hall.
Chamber members could
use the funds to renovate the
older building that subse-
quently suffered more dam-


age from Hurricane Wilma in
2005. In exchange the cham-
ber would pay $1 per month
to lease the Second Street
building.
Money was never ex-
changed except for $20,261
spent by the chamber for
design plans. Funds from the
sale would have been distrib-
uted as building costs receipts
were handed in to the city for
payment.
The chamber never moved
its offices to the new location.
Delays and higher construc-
tion costs later caused cham-
ber board members to rethink
the deal.
On Tuesday, both parties
were satisfied to call the deal


off.
In return, the city will re-
tain $429,739 of the $450,000
plus more than $66,000 in
interest the city earned while
the funds were being held in
escrow.
"It actually wound up as
a positive for the city while
all parties seemed satisfied,"
Mayor Lamar Fisher said
Tuesday night.
The interest on the escrow
funds were earned despite the
fact that the original agree-
ment between the city and
the chamber said the money
should be held in a non-inter-
est bearing account.
Pompano Beach Chamber
Chairman of the Board Robert


Harpest, Jr. signed the-agree-
ment April 16.
It is expected that the
chamber will continue operat-
ing at its current location for
the foreseeable future.
In other action, the com-
mission, in the consent
agenda:
APPROVED settlement
for a sum of $250,000 with
Hazen & Sawyer on an engi-
neering claim concerning the
city's water system.
TABLED any action on
creating a dog park at Com-
munity Park.
APPROVED settlement
for a sum of $75,000 with
Atlantic Safety Casualty
Company for a claim con-


cerning water filtration equip-
ment.

The Pelican 19


Pompano Beach Saltwater Circuit kicks off with Shootout May 10


SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN
The Pompano Beach Salt-
water Circuit, or PBSC, is
set to kick off its 10th Anni-
versary with the first of three
tournaments, The Mercury/
SeaVee Pompano Beach Salt-
water Shootout which will be
held the weekend of May 10
out of Hillsboro Inlet in Pom-
pano Beach.
The Shootout will offer
many new incentives for tour-
nament anglers including the
chance to win over $14,000-
for the single heaviest fish
caught in the tournament.
Additional cash prizes will
also be paid out to the 2nd and
3rd heaviest fish overall in the
tournament.
And there's an added
bonus for members of the
Coastal Conservation As-
sociation. The heaviest fish
caught by a CCA member will
be worth $500.


The team division will pay
to 15 places with the top team
earning $7,500 based on the
heaviest combined weight of
eligible species which include
dolphin, wahoo, kingfish,
blackfin tuna and cobia.
Speaking of kingfish, dol-
phin and wahoo, the tourna-
ment has also offered a new
lotto style division called the
Kay Dee Dubya which offers
over $5,000 for the heaviest
KDW trio in the tournament.
Local marine dealer,
Electronics Unlimited has
signed on to sponsor a divi-
sion exclusively for amateur
fishing teams which will pay
to four places with a guar-
anteed payday of $2,500 to
the top amateur team. The
tournament will also cater to
everyday teams with a family
division and small boat divi-
sion that will each pay to two
places.
With the support of Bionic


Bait, the PBSC will return
with the very popular 'Show
Me the Mahi' division. This
category pays three places
with $5,000 to 1st, $2,500 to
2nd and $1,500 to 3rd.
Another new category that
is sure to get the most laughs
is the all new 'Toilet Bowl
Champs.'
"Tournaments are all about
having fun, and that's exactly
what we've set out to do with
this category," said Jamie
Bunn, director of the event.
For the first time ever, the
Saltwater Shootout will recog-
nize the team that comes in
last place in the tournament.
Last place has never meant
so much until now. The last
place team will earn a free
day charter with the world
renowned Capt. Dean Panos
on Double D charters. With
a little help from Capt. Dean,
they are sure to improve their
standings in future tourna-


ments!
The Saltwater Shootout
will have plenty to offer kids
as well, beginning with prize
categories for Junior and
PeeWee anglers. If you don't
have a boat, but would love to
