Vice Mayor

E. Pat Larkins

resigns District

4 seat
By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF

E. Pat Lar-
kins has served
Pompano Beach
for more than
20 years, repre-
senting District
4. A few months
ago, during a
walk, he be-
came dizzy and
disoriented.
Physicians discovered that Lar-
kins had a brain tumor that required
surgery. Larkins is now on the road to
recovery, but this road could be longer
than he or the city anticipated.
For weeks, commissioners have
"excused" Larkins' absences from
city commission meetings.
But now Larkins has agreed that
someone must step up to speak on be-
half of District 4, and it will not be he.
This week it was a tearful Larkins
who bid goodbye to his constituents.
But his emotions were taken over by
several standing ovations, a loving
wife, Bettye, who joined him at the
dais to help him deliver his final of-
ficial address.
The vice mayor, known for his
pragmatic and sometimes sarcastic re-
marks, even tore into himself saying,
"I can do better than this." He spoke
of the good people in his district
which encompasses a strong African
American and multi-cultural commu-
nity where there is work to be done.
He added that whoever sits in his seat
at city hall would be wise to listen to
the people of District 4.

Lighthouse Point bees not allowed to

hang out in water meter says bee keeper


By Maggie Davidson
PELICAN WRITER
Three weeks ago a swarm
of bees was found in a water
meter in a Lighthouse Point
neighborhood. The Fire
Rescue Department came and
taped off the area as a precau-
tion to residents.
But the final call was to
beekeeper Bruce Duncan who
was unable to save them.
Duncan explained that
he could either capture or
euthanize the bees. He said
they were "acting very ag-
gressively." If he had tried to
capture them, it could have
started a "health dilemma"
for residents. The bees would
have been hard to manage and
could have gotten away.


Euthanizing bees brings up
recent news that bees in the
United States are disappear-
ing.
Given that one-third of hu-
man food supply depends on
bees' pollination, it is trou-
bling to have to decide to kill
bees.
It has been reported that 90
percent of bees in the United
States have disappeared.
It's important to note that
the reports refer to wild bees.
Most pollination is by domes-
ticated European honey bees
which are kept by professional
beekeepers, delivered to farms
and groves, and picked up
after the bees have pollinated
for the farms.
The wild bees (also called
feral bees), like those found

in LHP, if taken to hives, can
cause a disruption in the hive.
Feral bees are thought to
be African bees which are
characterized by defensive
stinging, frequent swarming,
and readily leaving their nests
to go elsewhere. The Florida
Department of Agriculture
has requested beekeepers to
not collect feral bees for their
hives.
Domesticated and wild bees
cannot be distinguished by
eyesight. They have to be
sent to a laboratory for identi-
fication.
Because it was not pos-
sible to determine the type
of bees in the LHP case and
based on their "aggressive
and mean" behavior, Duncan
had to make a judgment call.

Palm Aire sewer line funds

may go to other Lauderdale-

By-The Sea projects
Mayor Minnet wants $3.4 million for debt
payments if town refuses sewer line funding


By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
Commissioners in Lauder-
dale-By-The-Sea voted 4-1
against a proposal by Mayor
Roseann Minnet to take the
$3.4 million borrowed to fund
sewers in Palm Club and apply
it to reducing the town debt.
That is provided the com-
mission decides not to move
forward with sewers in Palm
Club.
A few years earlier, when
the town was lobbying to an-
nex the area that included the
Palm Club, officials promised
to provide sewer lines for all
homeowners. Prior to annexa-


tion, most of those residents
were on septic tanks.
Minnet said the funds were
borrowed for capital im-
provements and budgeted for
the Palm Club project.
The mayor said she wanted
"some honest accountability.
If we have other projects,
we should borrow for those.
Let's give all the people some
tax relief. Let's show the citi-
zens we're working together
and are fiscally responsible."
Commissioner Birute Clot-
tey seconded the motion with
an "Amen. This is what Com-

Dr. Marvin Giddings' retirement turns into a new ministry


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
Dr, Marvin Giddings,
76, is one physician who has
cared for thousands of people
who today just might be a bit
healthier because of his work.
Recently Dr. Giddings
went reluctantly into retire-
ment after a tumor was locat-
ed near his acoustic nerve. He
began to have some trouble
with balance.
"One morning, I couldn't
stand up," says Giddings. "I
actually needed support." Gid-
dings is undergoing periodical
treatment at Emory.
"Retirement is a funny
feeling. I'm caught between
the emotions of caring for
patients and not being able to
service them."
Jeff Miranda, 46, owner
of OK Tires, 3381 N. Dixie
Highway, Pompano Beach,
remembers his pediatrician
with a deep affection. "Dr.
Giddings is a very warm and
approachable physician,"
Miranda says.
He also remembers see-
ing Dr. Giddings often while
growing up in Pompano
Beach.
"One time I was messing
around in the living room. My
mom told me to quit before I
hurt myself. Then I fell on the
corner of a coffee table and
cut my head open."
Dr. Giddings patched up


Miranda as he did for hun-
dreds of active kids, and many
may have the same feelings
Miranda did about those visits.
He adds. "Dr. Giddings
might remember me as a crier,
but I was always better when
I left. I was probably in the
office once a month. The only
- things I didn't like were the
shots."
Miranda now has five
children, but only six-year-old
Gregory got to meet Dr. Gid-
dings before he retired.
Giddings came to Pom-
pano Beach after serving two
years in the US Air Force
as the base pediatrician. His
medical degree is from Emory
University. He completed his
internship at Grady Memorial
Hospital in Atlanta, Ga.
Looking back at his own
childhood, Giddings says his
mother had always told him
that he would be a doctor.
At Emory, where an in-
ternship paid $10 a month plus
room and board, Dr. Giddings
and others looked at medicine
not just as a career.

which provides shelter and

Allison Rokos, a member
of the Pompano Beach High

tion drive, learned about Cov-
enant House's need for peanut
butter and jelly sandwiches at
her religious education class
at St. Elizabeth of Hungary
Church in Pompano Beach.
"I never would have
imagined something as simple
as a peanut butter and jelly
sandwich could have such an
impact," said Rokos


The peanut butter and
jelly drive took place over 7
school days and featured a
competition by which Coach
Fecteau's first block physical
education class won a dough-
nut party for bringing in the
greatest number of jars.

Diana Singkornrat is all set to
volunteer 21 days in a small town in
India, helping impoverished youth
in orphanages, building wells and
improving conditions as she interacts
with the community. She'll be part
of a Canadian program called Free
the Children/ Leaders Today which
is dedicated to helping young people
realize their potential through leader-
ship, education and development. Di-
ana will graduate in June. Her parents
have paid her deposit and residual ex-
penses, but she still needs $4,895 for
her airfare, in country travel, guides to
ensure safety, accommodations, meals
and clean water.
Kris Rhoades is in the same boat.


These two graduating PBHS seniors
hope to volunteer overseas in the Free
the Children/Leaders Today Canadian
program which sends student volunteers
to impoverished areas in the world to
help the youth of the area improve their
own conditions. Kris Rhoades and Diana
Singkomrat must each raise $5,000 to pay
for their own trips.

He hopes to go to Tanzania to do the
same right after graduation. There he
will volunteer to assist in building
projects, help in orphanages and try
to improve the quality of life for the
young people in a village. He says,
"I believe that this trip will expand
my knowledge of the third world and
help me see how much one person can
do to make a difference." His parents
have also paid the deposit and residual
expenses, but he too needs $4,995 for
the same expenses.
How the Canadian volunteer
program, Free the Children/Leaders
Today, came to Pompano Beach is
quite a story.

Larkins said last Tuesday that it was his faith in God that has pulled him
through to this point. And it is Larkins' faith in the people he has represented for
more than 20 years that he calls on now to advise the person who fills his seat
after a special election on Aug. 26.
We at The Pelican have always enjoyed writing about the District 4 com-
missioner who always spoke his mind and never let a person's race, wealth or
religion determine his vote on an issue.
He is a politician who always sought the greater good.
And of course, he often gave the commission and the public a healthy
laugh--many times when they needed it for a reality check.
We say goodbye and thank you to our former mayor, commissioner and vice
mayor for all the good he has done for this community.
And to the next commissioner of District 4, we think Larkins' advice is
worthwhile. And we are sure that after rehab, Larkins will be watching and
helping whoever follows in his steps.
And mighty big steps they are.

Bettye Larkins stands with her husband, Vice Mayor E. Pat Larkins, James L. Jones, former prin-
cipal of Blanche Ely High School and Woodrow Poitier, former Pompano Beach fire fighter, after
last week's commission meeting where Larkins officially resigned his post. Poitier is one of five
candidates who will run for the District 4 seat.
E. Pat Larkins has served Pompano' Beach and District 4 as commissioner,
vice mayor and mayor.
His philosophy of service in any of the above-mentioned positions was to
be prepared. To Larkins that meant to study city agendas before meetings, never
leave the house without reading the newspaper and listen to the good advice of
the people you represent.
Last week, it was difficult to witness the end of Larkins' tenure on the dais.
Brain surgery may have temporarily stolen part of this man's agility, but no
brain tumor will never triumph over his spirit.


Bees
Continued from page 2
Considering that the bees were located in a water meter in a neighborhood yard,
safety of the residents was the big issue; and he had to take protective action.
Some things to keep in mind in the event you come across a swarm of bees:
Try to stay calm and quiet and run in a straight line away from the bees. Don't
swat or flail your arms at them. Remember that bees can be easily agitated. Get
treatment for a bee sting right away.
The LHP Public Works Department gets relatively few calls about bee
swarms, and they are usually found in water meters.

"Ask


Lori"


Dear Lori:
I received an email last week at our title company office.
Every agent received the same email from an on line
company selling what's called a Homestead Declaration. I
think your office should let taxpayers know what this is-
and it's not the same as a Homestead Exemption.
J.R., Fort Lauderdale (via email)

Every year brings another example of creative companies trying
to sell services aimed at Broward County homeowners. The
debtor/creditor protections granted by Florida law are entirely
unrelated to any function of the Property Appraiser-but we can
point you in the right direction. The confusion arises because
Florida law has at least three separate sets of legal rights-all
vaguely related through the concept of permanent residency,
which are all named "homestead."

Our office handles matters involving the $50,000 Homestead
Exemption on property taxes on a primary residence. This type
of "homestead" is covered by Chapter 196, Florida Statutes.
Chapter 196, however has nothing to do with debtor/creditor
protection. Another provision of Florida law entitles
"homestead" ensuring a will is probated in the county of the last
permanent residence of the decedent. The so-called "Homestead
Declaration" relates to Florida debtor/creditor protections for a
primary residence, found in Chapter 222, F.S. Please pay
specific attention to Section 222.01, F.S., which has a sample of
the Notice of Homestead form you must file with Broward
County Recording Division to take advantage of these legal
rights after a final judgment is entered against you in court. Any
Florida bankruptcy attorney should be familiar with this.

However, if you are not dealing with a possible bankruptcy
situation or facing creditors who are seeking to take your home,
you do not need to be very concerned with the Chapter 222
"homestead" protections at this time.

that would establish a process
for obtaining their personal
records without delay and
expense.
"As these kids move from
school to school, their records
lag behind and often they fail
because of that," Workman
said. "They don't-ven have
the addresses of places they
have lived. They don't have
information as to their real
parents and potential inherited
health problems."
But with the legislature im-
mersed in budget problems,
neither bill made it to the
floor.
Workman, 31, knows what it
is like to be in the system. She
grew up with four scared and
uprooted siblings, a discon-


nected, severely depressed
mother and a dad she relied
on to be her stability until he

Families entered the picture,
and she was sent to a foster

From age 15 on, she at-
tended seven Broward County
high schools and lived with
three foster families. The
placements were not perfect,
and as a rebellious teenager
she admits she contributed to
the problems.
Once she entered social

of support came from Bro-
ward General Master Nick

with a MBA in health care
management. Her foster dad
recommended her to Andrea
Moore, a children's rights at-
torney who heads up Florida's
Children First, or FCF, Know-
ing Workman was looking for
a job where she could do good
work, Moore brought her into
the Florida Youth SHINE,
or FYS, project, a group of
former foster kids who have
ideas about improving the
system and who lobby their
legislators and the Department
of Children and Families to
get things done.
When Workman came on
the scene, FYS was on the
move and she was the perfect
fit. As Moore now says, "the
rest is happiness. Tammy
brings her wonderful energy
and ideas to work every day.
She has helped move the
Youth SHINE project to a new
level, reaching out to more
young people and educating
more policy makers."
"This job is a special assign-
ment. I am meant to be here,"
Workman said. "Kids are not
getting the information they
need. They don't know their
rights and their responsibili-
ties, and if they do have the
facts, they don't have the
skills to apply them. They
don't get enough individual
attention, enough supervi-


sion when they age out of the
system at 18."
Workman has succeeded in
putting aside her feelings of
being overwhelmed and has
found energy and focus.
"It took a lot of messed up
relationships and a traumatic
growing up to get me where I
am today," she said.
And this is where she wants
to be-- feeling useful, living
in Pompano Beach in a stable
relationship, looking for her
next challenge which may be
another graduate degree and
making plans to be a million-
aire.
Workman has taken some
investment courses and has
made a modest profit which
she hopes to build on. A more
immediate task she has set for
herself is to open a health and
wellness clinic aimed at help-
ing children and adults keep
their families together.
When it all seems too much
to handle, she reverts to the
philosophy of her favorite
movie, Pay It Forward. It's
the story of a young boy who
sets out to do three good
deeds every day in the hope
that others will follow his
lead. "I am so grateful for the
people who have shown me
how to tap into the heart and
mind God gave me, I will
always pay it forward," Work-
man said.

Atlantic East, a new community of town homes

with the look of Key West in the heart of Pompano


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
The Residences of Atlantic East
are located at 726 E. Atlantic Blvd.,
tucked back from the street into a
beautifully landscaped, privately
fenced and secluded community. The
name reflects the location with its
quick access to the ocean, marinas,
airport, golf, tennis, shopping, dining
and theater.
For people who want to cut down
on driving, Atlantic East is a great
choice. Residents can park their cars,
save gas and enjoy easy walks to so
many things including schools, parks,
banks, drug stores, restaurants, auxil-
iary food stores and more.
The large and airy two-story
townhouses are available in four
distinctive styles all with balconies,
terraces, high ceilings, high impact
windows, concrete second floors,
internet/video smart wiring and private
full size garages and covered carports.
Community amenities include paver
entranceways, clubhouse with heated
swimming pool, Jacuzzi, family picnic
area and guest parking.
Built by Guardian American
Homes, the owners Richard Krieff and
Robert Johns, are proud to have cre-
ated quality homes and neighborhoods
in South Florida since the 1960s. At
Atlantic East the builders are always
onsite to answer questions and Krieff
adds, "to quickly deal with any prob-
lem on a personal level."
Johns says, "Because of today's
market, the units are being offered at
30 to 40 percent less than previously
priced. Buyers who buy now will also
benefit from the future marketing and

sales of our Phase Two, ad-
ditional 22 units which will
have higher prices. With prices
from $319,900 to $379,900 we
are the best buy around."
The 22 units in Phase One
have been completed. The
club house and pool will be
completed shortly.
The builders recognize
that buyers have a great deal
of anxiety with respect to
where home prices are going.
With that in mind Johns says,
"That's why we are offering
a risk free way for buyers to
move forward. They can lease
the units with an option to pur-
chase without the customary,
non refundable option deposit.
They can lease as if they
are renters with a guaranteed


option to buy. Presently we
have both owners and lease
option residents living on
site."
Asked to highlight unqiue
features, Krieff named the
white metal roof saying,
"Metal roofs hold up better
than tile or shingles in hur-
ricanes. It is a more expensive
choice, but we feel it's worth
it. Ours has a 30-year life-
time, is energy efficient as it
reflects 96 percent of the sun's
rays. It also is in keeping with
our Key West style of archi-
tecture."
All windows are high
impact eliminating the need
for shutters and giving the
residents the advantages of
protection, sound reduction,
and sparing interior furnish-
ings from sun fading.
Every unit has two park-
ing spots. All kitchens have


52-inch wood cabinets and
granite counter tops;,wood and
granite appointments in the
baths. Both floors have 9-foot
ceilings and 8-foot panel doors.
The design center on the prem-
ise allows buyers to choose
colors, carpeting etc.
Sales Manager Caroline
Melton took a turn at pointing
out unusual features in Resi-
dences of Atlantic East.
The air conditioned square
footage runs from 1,883 to
2,161, depending on the unit
chosen. With high ceilings, and
so much light and space. our
models feel like single family
homes. The units are fee simple
which means owners own the
land. They can fence in the
backyard and garden or barbe-
- cue if they wish. Maintenance
fees are low.
Each model has a unique
feature. One plan offers the


master bedroom on the first
level. Another offers an over-
size master bedroom with
sitting area and a covered
balcony. A third has a 1,900-
foot soaring living room
ceiling and a fourth features
a large kitchen with an amaz-
ing number of cabinets.
Carla D'Adate is
especially pleased with her
large kitchen. "I do a lot of
cooking, so I love my large,
inviting kitchen with enough
cabinets to even suit me.
We moved here in March,
and I am very happy in this
beautiful building which is
so convenient to everything."
All units are done in
concrete block construction
with solid concrete between
the first and second floor to
kill sound.


"This is really important
in our family," says Michael
Schelske, another new resi-
dent. " My teenagers can lis-
ten to their music upstairs and
we don't even hear it while
we're watching television
downstairs. We moved here
in March and were surprised
to find everything ready for us
and on time. Our townhouse
is very spacious and close to
everything we need. I can go
to the ocean in minutes and
walk the beach which is very
important to me."

building size is larger than

"How did we benefit the
public?" he said. "Let's do
a post mortem: we could
have had the underwater land
deeded to the city, we lost the

The site was one of the issues
surrounding the final conten-
tious years of Deetjen's tenure
here. He resigned in 2006.
One of the prime movers
against the original site plan,
Crystal Lake resident and
Planning and Zoning Board
member Linda Mooney, said
this week she opposed Lanzo's
original plan because it re-
quired 30 feet of fill into the
lake to create the greenway.
At that time, and still today,
Mooney protests any filling of
the lake, citing peace and quiet

Lanzo's site plan meets all
the city's zoning and code
requirements
Mooney added and plan-
ners had no way to deny the
site plan. She, in fact, moved
for its approval.
Mooney said she has been
working with county com-
missioner Kristin Jacobs
since last November to


prevent Lanzo from pulling
permits to dredge the lake.
A previous application has
been pulled she said. "I asked
Gary d'Allesandro (Lanzo)

why file for dredging permits?
He wouldn't answer me,"

accomplished some amaz-
ing things for less fortunate
children in remote places.
His accomplishments stimu-
lated the founding of Free
the Children/ Leaders Today,
a Canadian program which
sends volunteer students into
impoverished areas to help
young people improve their
own conditions. Oprah was
so impressed, she created an
'0 Ambassador' program
for one year to get Ameri-
can teachers involved in the
Canadian program, and to
stimulate American students
to volunteer service in areas
of need.
Rhoades was so im-
pressed, she volunteered to
become an "0 Ambassador.
She was accepted into the
program and received a stack
of educational material on
how to make the world a bet-
ter place for all young people.
"I feel we were chosen
because we are an "A" school
with a strong International
Studies Program," Rhoades
explains. "My task was
to teach students about the
challenges faced in specific
countries , share ideas, build
friendships and take action
to improve the quality of life
for the impoverished youth.
I chose to focus on South
Asia."
She continued, "My class
of 26 sophomores became
very excited with the project.
We had a visit from a Tibetan
Monk, watched a movie on
Ghandi, discussed the effects


of religion and governments
on these countries. We cre-
ated an after school club. Two
motivational speakers from
the Canadian club came to
speak, and they really fired up
our youngsters. Many of our
students wanted to experience
what they had been learning
and were eager to become
involved in volunteering in
projects in South Asia.
Parents were cautious
because most of our students
are just 16. Several parents
said they would consider the
opportunity in a few years
when their children were a
little older."
Another PBHS teacher,
Nicole Hanna brought her
class to hear the speakers and
her students had the same
reaction. She says, "They
were totally immersed in the
presentation. They continue
to have peer discussions and
many want to get involved in
Free the Children/Leaders of
Today next year and hopefully
volunteer overseas."
With a sigh, Rhoades
says, "I became so involved, I
wished I could go myself, so it
was tough to say no when my
own son, Kris asked his father
and me if he could try to raise
the money and make the trip.
Dr. Claudia Singkornrat's
daughter Diana also persuaded
her parents to let her do the
same."
Both young people hope
to take videos and cameras
along to prepare slide presen-
tations of their experiences
to bring back home and share
with their sponsors.

Sensational

Sizzle!

Lean Beef Is the
Hot Choice for
Summer Grilling


The satisfying sound of sizzling
beef ... the one-of-a-kind aroma of
steak on the grill ... is your mouth
watering yet? Get ready to give in
to temptation, because outdoor grill-
ing season is here and you have more
tantalizing beef choices than ever.
USDA guidelines identify 29 cuts
of beef as lean, including many fa-
vorites, such as top sirloin, tenderloin
and top round steaks, and 95% lean
ground beef. That means there are
more lean and nutrient-rich ways to
satisfy the craving that only beef can
answer. More ways to enjoy a meal
that gives you the protein you need to
maintain a healthy, active lifestyle.
So fire up the grill and let the
flames of passion burn - because beef
is the hottest thing going.

com.


Beef on the Grill
-Grill beef over medium heat.
Too high heat can cause the exterior
to char before the interior reaches the
desired doneness. Charring or over-
cooking beef is not recommended.
-Always cook burgers to 1600F,
turning occasionally with a spatula -
no pressing, please! Insert an instant-

years, the reliably pleasing
French toast. With a straight-
forward presentation, she was
given a substantial portion

those of you who have never

highly recommended.

fast stalwarts such as pan-

benedict, sausage, corned beef
hash and much more. With

up," Fedderman said. "They
gain self esteem. They explore
their individuality. And then
they find there is a big demand
for their work."
Fedderman's Art with a
Heart program continues to
attract sponsors who "can't
believe the kids do this." The


Jim and Jan Moran Foundation
has been the primary benefac-
tor of the Deerfield Beach
Boys and Girls Club since it
opened nine years ago.
Nowadays there are other
corporate sponsors, the City
of Deerfield Beach donates
$10,000 in Block Grant fund-
ing, and money is raised by
selling the kids' art.
"Harley Davidson wants
the kids to do a mural for their


U. ~1


new store," Fedderman said.
Last year their image was used
by the company for its t-shirts.
Among the precocious art
students at the Deerfield Beach
Club is two time award-winner
Nicole Appleton, 10. A resi-
dent of Crystal Lake, Nicole's
mixed media pieces won first
place in two different catego-
ries (an unheard of accomplish-
ment) and are now in an exhibit
that is traveling nationally.
Nicole is fascinated by
faces: hers are exotic, beauty I
ful, whimsical. She works in
pastels and acrylic, adding ma-
terials like threads and glitter
to achieve a three-dimensional
effect. "I draw from a photo,
but then I do my own style,"
said the Quiet Waters Elemen-

tary School student.
Fedderman calls Nicole,
"very, very talented" and said
Nicole has gained enormous
self esteem because of the suc-
cess of her art. "When I first
met her, she would barely talk.
She is a different person now."
As popular with the kids as
their individual pieces are the
group projects they complete.
Three or four of them will
work on a painting - a process
that becomes group therapy
-and they all sign off on it,
Fedderman said.
As she travels to the
instructors under her direc-
tion, Fedderman each month
selects one of the masters
for art history lessons. For a
month the kids will learn about
the painter, his life, his brush
strokes, his works. It's argu-
ably the best, and maybe the
only, fine art being taught to
elementary school age children
in Broward.


Fedderman's own bold,
three-dimensional work is in
demand although she doesn't
have enough time to complete
her commissions. Several
stars of the music world have
her pieces and at her son's art
gallery in California, Fed-
derman said there is a list of
people hoping one day to own
a Fedderman.
"But it's not about the
money," said this artist and
former clothing designer. It's
about making a difference.
It was a very big challenge,
there were no supplies, there
was no art room, but I felt I
was on a mission. I grew up
in the projects in the Bronx,
and I could relate to these
kids.
"And then everything just
came together. I came here
at a time when I wanted to
change my life. That's exactly
what this program did."

part of our campaign
platform."
But Dodd questioned
Minnet, "What makes
you think we are fiscally
irresponsible?"
Town Manager Esther
Colon said there would be
a pre-payment penalty for
paying the debt early.
"When we got the funds, it
was for capital improvement
projects," Colon said. "If you
want to pay more, I'll go find
the money."
Asked about the cost
for Palm Club, Colon said
originally it was supposed to
be $2.07 million.
Vice Mayor Jerry McIntee
said he was distressed about
Minnet's statement about
"honest accountability."
"We're taking authority
away from the town manager


for political grandstanding,"
he said. "To lock the hands of
the town manager and tell her
to put the money there, that's
fiscally irresponsible."
Colon said the town paid
down $1.4 million in debt
this fiscal year. She said she
doesn't like to do it if it costs
a penalty.
And she cautioned, "If
we need more CIP, or
Community Improvement
Project, funds at a higher cost,
we have to be careful. I'm the
first for paying down debt,
but not when I need more for
CIP projects in the future."
Clottey said she didn't see
the proposal as an assault on
the town manager. Colon said
she didn't either.
"The commission decides
how funds should be spent,"
Clottey said. "We have all this
money borrowed. What are
we going to use it for? Let's
pay off as much as we can."

Pine, "Welcome to
Pompano Beach'
- LBTS resident

Colon noted that the
town has grants for beach
nourishment and bus portals
but must fund its part. "We
have to figure out how much
we need for CIPs before we
pay back the debt."
"Our goal should be to
repay as much of the loan as
possible in the shortest time
possible."
But that didn't work for
Hank Overton, president of
the Palm Club, who said the
engineering and survey work


is completed for sewers in
Palm Club, and the project is
ready for bid.
"You have an opportunity
to complete one of your four
promises," he said, referring
to Palm Club and other areas
where sewers were installed.
He said the funds should be
placed in escrow. "If they're
used for other purposes,


that is a misappropriation of
funds," he said.
Overton said commissioners
need to give more than lip
service to the annexation
agreement.
"If you continue on your
present course, you will
see a sign at A1A and Pine,
'Welcome to Pompano
Beach,'" he said.

to 9, will face each other for
the All-Star championship.
John Frazer says the
competition highlights
players who have been
chosen by their coaches as
the best examples of players
with "ability, attitude,
sportsmanship and team
spirit."


Want home


Since February, teams
have been playing on
Wednesday nights at Dan
Witt and Frank McDonough
Parks. Now the All-Stars
from the two parks will face
each other.
Several highlights in the
games include Mayor Fred
Schorr throwing the first
pitch, a full color guard
will present the flag and
Matthew Molina, 10, will
sing the National Anthem.
The game will be
followed with a picnic and
most likely a lot more fun.
All Stars from Dan Witt
Park are Mets players,
Dan Hammett, Tucker
Stevenson, Justin Longa and
Ryan Szklany. Red Sox All-
Stars are Joseph Zingarella,
Mark Walker, Cameron


Graham and McKenna
Lasher. Pirates players are
Kyle Johnson, Zack Damen,
Kyle McSweeney and Jake
Calvin.
The All-Star Committee
is made up of Robert
Garcia, John Kastritis,
Pete Damen, John Frazer,
Pete Zingarella, and Jon
Schlegel.
Frank McDonough
Park All-Stars Marlins
are Cameron Cagle, Jake
Frazer, Justin Garcia and
Nick Nelson Athletics All
Stars are Conrad Schlegel,
Michael Kastritis, Joe
Maguire and Fisher Yancey.
The Phillies All Stars are
Owen Scrudders, Mark
Dekok, Ryan Cooney and
Dan Limperis.

The Pelican 21


Past Tense


At the comer of Flagler Avenue and NE Second Street there is a ma-
sonry building with the name "Belvill" on it. It was constructed in 1934
by T. Sol Belvill to replace an earlier, wooden building (shown in the
photograph) that had burned down.
It is not clear when the original Belvill building was constructed, but it
was before the First World War. The old building housed the U.S. Post
Office with commercial space on the ground floor and hotel rooms on
the second.
Following the fire that destroyed the wooden building, the Post Office
moved to the Masonic Lodge building on the south side of Pompano
Canal. That building, just east to today's City Hall, was recently de-
molished to make way for a new library.

Office Fire Rescue Depart-
ment has a contract with the
town through Sept. 30.
Mclntee asked the Town
Attorney Dan Abbott if a fire-
rescue representative isn't ob-
ligated to be at the meeting.
Abbott responded, "It seems
reasonable that they be here. I
would have to review the con-
tract."
McIntee asked that a letter
be sent to Chief Richard Siev-
ers directing him to be at the
next meeting. .
Mclntee said he has sev-


eral questions to pose to the
chief. For example, he said
that fire trucks were returned
to the Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment with no water in the bat-
teries and no hydraulic fluid.
"They took care of our equip-
ment like a junkyard dog," he
said, noting that $4,000 was
spent to repair vehicles.
Air-packs also weren't
maintained, McIntee said,
resulting in another $5,000
bill. "With normal due care
that wouldn't happen. I hoped
Sievers would be here," he
said.
Commissioner Stuart Dodd
said he had questions for

the chief about the length of
time it took his department to
respond to a recent incident at
Sea Ranch Club B and about
an incident at Sea Ranch Club
A where the building manager
reportedly put out a fire in a
garbage chuto.
Dodd complained that
Sievers had time enough to
write to the commissioners to
complain about the volunteers
helping to get a parrot out of
a tree but not to come to the
meeting.
"This kind of approach
is not good enough. There's
an extremely strong likeli-
hood we will have the vol-
unteers back," Dodd said.
In the meantime, BSO Fire
Rescue "should be held with
their nose to the grindstone
until their contract is up. This
behavior is inexcusable at this
time."
Commissioner Jim Sil-
verstone said, "Professionals
don't do this. They don't just
not show up," Silverstone
said.

McIntee explained about
the parrot. "Volunteers went
to the home and used some
long poles to pull a tree
branch down and rescue the
bird. "The family was happy,"
Mclntee said. "Then commis-
sioners received letters from
Sievers stating that the volun-
teers had no right to save the
bird. The chief said BSO was
writing to the fire marshal to
complain."
"BSO Fire knows they're
being scrutinized, and they
don't care," Commissioner
Birute Clottey said.
VFD chief reports
VFD Fire Chief Bob Per-
kins said the VFD now has 82
members and 80 percent are
certified.
Perkins said the depart-
ment is drilling twice a week.
"The word is out, and
they're coming from every-
where," Perkins said. "It's
overwhelming."
"If need be, can you come
back earlier than Oct. 1?"
Clottey asked Perkins.

LBTS civic
group

examining
ways to de-
annex from
the town
The North Beach Civic
Association has put together
a committee to research the
de-annexation process, Fred
Lapple, vice president, an-
nounced at a meeting this
week.
Former LBTS Commis-
sioner Chuck Clark and at-
torney Sue Delegal are among
the committee members.
Committee members are
interviewing mayors of Fort
Lauderdale, Pompano Beach,
Sea Ranch Lakes and oth-
ers to gauge their interest in
annexation "to see what the
acceptance would be and if
they would even consider it,"
Lapple said.
"The committee is getting
ideas on what would have
to be done," Lapple said.
Petitions would need to go to
people in the north and south
to see if they would consider
it. It's not an easy thing to ac-
complish, and it requires a lot
of investigation,."
