Volunteer

firefighters

expected to

take over fire

suppression

No other applicants respond
to town's fire requests
By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
Town commissioners in Lauderdale-
By-The-Sea heard a proposal from
the only applicant for fire suppression
services in town. To no one's surprise
it was the local volunteer fire
department.
The current provider, Broward
Sheriffs Fire Rescue, decided not to
bid. Their current contract, which runs
through Oct. 1, was not renewed. BSO
had earlier indicated they would not
bid for fire suppression unless they also
had the EMS services.
The sheriff ousted the VFD from
the town over safety issues in the
fall of 2006, citing safety issues. The
volunteers had worked with BSO
from 2001 to 2006 and were the sole
provider of fire suppression from 1961

Truckload of

sand en route

against deadline

for eroded beach

on Hillsboro Mile
By Frances Zannoni
PELICAN WRITER
One of Hillsboro Beach's most
eroded shores, behind Port De Mere,
1236 Hillsboro Mile, may soon be
getting a much needed truck haul of
sand. It's been called a "hot spot" by
locals.
The town recently finalized a
contract with landowner John
Kennelly to purchase 14,000 cubic
yards of sand that he has on his
Hillsboro Beach property at 1175
Hillsboro Mile.
They hope to start dumping the sand
before June 1 so the two week project
will be completed by June 15 to avoid

Exposed electrical outlets, algae-filled pools,

Pompano agrees to hire company to revise

zoning codes, Brummer named as vice


mayor, draws
By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
This week Pompano Beach
commissioners agreed to
hire Clarion Associates, a
Colorado company, to review
and update the city's zoning
code. The work is expected to
take two years and will cost
$557,000.
Clarion is expected to host
several public workshops for
input during the two years.
Zoning codes in Pom-
pano Beach were devised as
problems arose. Many of the
codes are outdated and require
developers to seek variances
on a regular basis.
Because Pompano Beach
has moved from a rural com-


Jaline


munity to an urban city, a
revised code could encourage
new development.
Commissioner George
Brummer, a proponent of
the code revision, says the
process in an older city like
Pompano Beach will require
changes made on a "neigh-
borhood to neighborhood"
basis.
He compared Pompano
Beach to newer cities like
Coral Springs and Westin
where developers started
from bare land and were able
to plan the entire city before
it was constructed.
"We are a diverse city," said
Brummer. "A plan for the en-
tire city just wouldn't work.
But we have to find ways to

VFD


Continued from page 1
to 2001.
The VFD's total proposed
annual budget is $844,022
with an increase of 4
percent each year, said
Chief Bob Perkins, who
made the presentation, along
with Patrick Pointu, VFD
administrator, at Tuesday's
commission meeting.
That breaks down to
$375,000 for the fire
administration division,
$394,000 for the operations
division, $43,000 for fire
prevention and $33,000 for
beach patrol.
At the conclusion of their
presentation, Vice Mayor Jerry
Mclntee, a VFD member,
asked the town attorney if
the commission could legally
award the contract to the
VFD rather than wait for the
June 11 meeting when it's
scheduled.
Attorney Dan Abbott said
yes, the commission was
within its legal rights to accept
the proposal and negotiate the
contract unless the town has


regulations to the contrary.
Mclntee moved to award the
contract, but Commissioner
Birute Clottey objected.
"Let's not add more fuel
to the fire. Commissioner
McIntee, don't do this," she
said. Mclntee withdrew his
motion.
In his presentation, Perkins
said the VFD would provide
fire suppression, beach patrol
and fire prevention services.
The department currently
has 44 regular members who
live within a three-mile radius
of town and 38 associate
members. Fifteen members
are certified Firefighter 1 and
50 Firefighter 2. Their average
age is 34, and 66 percent are
below the age of 35.
When the VFD was ousted
in the fall of 2006, their
average response time was
within seven minutes, Perkins
said. They had 66 members
then and more members now,
"which would help bring the
response time down," he said.
The VFD would be part of
Broward County Fire Chiefs
Association mutual aid
agreement, he said.
They will offer a beach

with two ATVs. They will not
be lifeguards but will alert
rescue units and provide first
aid until EMS arrives. The
patrols would increase in a
dangerous water situation or
when requested by the town
manager. The beach patrol
will be ready to start in July.
VFD members will receive
$25 per call responded to and
$20 per drill for a maximum
of $40 a month. To keep their
active status, members must
respond to more than 20
percent of calls.
The fire administration
division will have two part-
time paid positions.
,The operations division
will have one full-time and
two part-time paid positions.


The fire prevention division
will have a part-time paid fire
inspector.
"Our primary mission is
emergency services, but we
will still be neighbors helping
neighbors," Perkins said.
Perkins said they had
received 15 sets of bunker
gear, a $30,000 gift, from
a fire department in New
York, which got new gear
and donated their old to the
VFD. Perkins added the VFD
would answer to the town city
manager.
Perkins said they need a
110-foot aerial truck and will
pay for that with money given
to them by supporters.
Pointu said they will be
ready by Oct. 1 to take over
fire suppression in town.

Making a Difference

The Bobby Resciniti Healing Hearts Foundation

reaches out to families who have lost a child


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
On July 13, 2006 at exactly 1:08
p.m., Bob and Diane Resciniti learned
that their 21-year-old son, Bobby, had
been in a bad car accident. He was
airlifted to the Delray Medical Trauma
Center where he died several hours
later.
"For months after Bobby's death,
life was a depressing blur to us and
our two surviving children, Michelle,
20, and Nicholas, 17, who suffered
right along with us. I don't know how
we would have made it without our
children and the support we got from
the Publix family, vendors, friends and
family who carried us along through
this, the worst time of our lives,"
Bob admits adding, "There were over
2,000 people attending Bobby's wake.
The majority were Publix families."
Publix Supermarkets are an im-
portant part of this story. Bob, now a
district manager, is a 32 year Publix
employee. Diane is a 22 year em-
ployee and Bobby was a seven-year
employee.
His dad explains, "Bobby was a
Publix pharmacy tech while attending
Palm Beach Community College. He
was a student in the criminal justice
department, and his dream was to
become a police officer."
After months of gloom and
despair, the family gradually became
energized by channeling their grief
into a memorial for Bobby. The Bobby
Resciniti Healing Hearts Foundation
was established using the many dona-
tions made in Bobby's memory.
"We went through the legal
process of creating a 501c3 founda-
tion which is very active," Bob says.
"We're only one year old, but we have
already reached out to many families
w ho have suffered the loss of a child.
All four of us in the family are on the
board of the foundation. The balance
of the board is made up of stewards of


Bob, Diane, Michelle and Nicholas Reciniti with their son, Bobby before the automobile accident.
After Bobby's death, this family moved forward to help others who have lost children.

the community."
One board member is Mike Flora
of Showcase Provisions, Boar's Head
Brand distributors. He says, "As a
father of three and grandfather of six,
I'm honored to be part of this worthy
foundation. A loss such as Bob and
Diane's family has had can't help but
move your heart. I cannot imagine the
pain these families go through with
the loss of a child. It is for this reason
that I'm compelled to contribute my
time to the foundation. I'm just glad
that I can play a small role in a cause


that helps bring comfort to families
going through a very difficult time of
life."
Another board member, Bill Fau-
erbach, says, "As a vice president of
Publix Supermarkets, I serve on many
different boards. All of them have the
same .purpose which is to help people
within our community.
"Serving on the Bobby Resciniti
Healing Hearts Foundation is special
to me. I have known Bob, his wife and
kids for many, many years. When I
heard that Bobby was in a car acci-
dent and didn't make it, the pain went
through me. It was a terrible feeling. I
could not even imagine how Bob and
Diane felt. I am humbled and honored
to serve on this board which has only
one goal, to reach out and help parents
who suffer the tragedy of losing a
child. I have personally witnessed the
families we have helped, and it is a
great and much needed service."

Deerfield commissioners

need to police themselves
By Judy. Wilson
COMMENTARY
It is time for Deerfield Beach City Commissioners to impose the same
manners on themselves they insist on when members of the public are at the
podium. Readers have only to view the May 20 city commission at Deerfield-
Beach.com and move the icon along to the last few minutes when another com-
bative discussion on the policy regulating clergy-led prayer was held.
This is surely a low point in this board's behavior. The heated exchange
between Vice Mayor Sylvia Poitier and an audience member, the mayor's
comments and the constant undertones of everyone talking at once is an embar-
rassment not limited to the audience in the commission chamber. Thanks to the
communication age, it was brought into our homes via television, and our com-
puter screens. Poitier even tried to instruct persons with items before the com-
mission on how to present and when to retire, a task the city attorney is more
than qualified to perform.
At one point, Poitier, emboldened by the gavel she held temporarily for
Mayor Al Capellini, shouted at a man in the audience, "You shut up or go out of
this room. You're in for a good one now [if] you bother with me."
It was the nadir of a meeting in which Poitier talked insistently on every
subject without regard to the thoughts of other commissioners.
When it comes to Poitier getting her remarks "on the record" there is no
waiting to be recognized by the Chair. It's full blast ahead whenever a notion
strikes her.
We'd think the commissioner is losing her marbles, except that when she
gets her point across to her satisfaction, to this observer, she looks triumphant.
Poitier knows she has been disruptive, but we think she has gained her objective
"to create bedlam" and, of course, to get her views "on the record."
Last week's record won't be one she should be proud of.
The mayor said the current commission is the "craziest" he has ever worked
with in his 17 years of service. Unable to control the babble, he threatened to
go home and left the room. Capellini did return to the dais, and some order was
restored, but the evening left viewers shaking their heads.
If the public only has three minutes each to speak, maybe all comment
should be limited to three minutes for each commissioner on each agenda item.
For complicated matters, and if one commissioner has special knowledge of an
issue, the rule could be waived by the mayor.
A well-prepared commissioner can state his or her opinion in three minutes
or less on almost any item of business. Comments should be taken only after
they have indicated - politely - their intent to speak. They should never be al-
lowed to talk over another commissioner or member of the public and one of
Chief Jay Femrnandez's biggest deputies should act as parliamentarian. Perhaps
this would return civility to our commission meetings.
It would save the citizens a lot of time and the commissioners a lot of em-
barrassment.


Opinion

People parks and dog parks are

best separated from each other
To the editor,
My experience has shown that dogs in parks soon convert them into conve-
nient dog-waste repositories, much of it disease-bearing. This is certainly not an
ideal family environment, especially for young children.
It seems to me a remote, non-utilized area of ground might be yielded at
Pompano Beach's Air Park. It is centrally located, easily accessed and safe.
Surely an acre or so can be made available. I suggest a serious attempt be made
to acquire space there, but not in a public people park.
Anthony E. Forgione


More thinking, planning and

funding needed for a Dog Park

To the editor,

Numerous letters have been written to the Pompano Pelican over the past few
months regarding the proposed off-leash dog run in Community Park- some
from members of the self-named "Dog Pack" group who are the proponents,
and some from the opponents of a dog park in that location. Many Pelican
readers, who are not part of either group, must be wondering what all the fuss is
about!
Most of the opponents, many of whom are dog owners, think a dog park is a
good concept but are concerned about the impact on current users, the environ-
ment, and the wildlife.
Unfortunately, the proposed site in the SE section in Community Park would
negatively impact all three. According to the Feb. 6 minutes of the city's parks
and recreation advisory board, the board is not in favor of the SE Community
Park site because of the potential for conflict with users of the walking/jogging
trail. Because of the impact of a dog park on the environment and wildlife,
including the nearby Florida Burrowing Owls, the Broward County Audubon
Society supports the efforts of the group opposing the proposed site in the SE-.
section of Community Park.
There has been little mention of the fact that the south section of Community
Park is already multi-use. This location is used for carnivals, for the Nautical
Flea Market and for on-the-ground seating for large concerts at the adjacent
amphitheater.
The users of the walking/jogging trail recognize that some of these events
generate significant income for the city and willingly share when an event ne-
cessitates a temporary closure of the south part of the trail.
In the event a dog park in Community Park would interfere with currently
established income-producing events, any financial loss to the city should be
assessed as an additional annual cost of the dog park. Because of recent public-
ity given to the Dog Pack's vision for a "Center of Dogdom" based out of the
requested dog park, consideration may need to be given to the impact of mul-
tiple dog-related events in addition to just an off-leash dog run (see BocaDog
Magazine, April/May 2008).
A dog park works best when the location is discrete, a separate entity. Near-
by examples of discrete parks in appropriate locations include Oakland Bark
in Oakland Park and Mizner Bark in Boca Raton. Fort Lauderdale's Bark Park
is a discrete dog park located within the city's 93-acre Snyder Park (the entire
dog-park, including the parking area, is completely separate from the rest of
the park). In contrast, the open green space in the south section of Community
Park is smaller than 10 acres in size. There would be no separate parking and
no perimeter access. The parking for the dog park would be right in the area
where kindergarten children from the Pompano Beach Elementary School Swim
Central Progranr cross to the Aquatics Center. Access to the off-leash dog run
would be right across the grassy area where the walking/jogging trail loops back
and forth. Having small children and runners crossing paths with the dogs just
seems like a bad idea.
Bringing domestic animals and the resulting use of insecticide for fleas and
ticks into an area where Burrowing Owls and other wildlife forage for food is
also an issue of concern.
Another important consideration in the location of any dog park is that of
nearby residences and other properties, also known as abutterss." While this
does not apply to Community Park, an alternative site under consideration, the
SE section of the Air Park, may also have environmental issues and the loca-
tion of a dog run there would take away from the country-club setting currently
enjoyed by the abutting restaurant and the golf course. The parks and recreation

with about six scams at the
time. No one ever moved into
the house. And none of the
scammers has been caught.
Several code violations
led to liens on the property.
Eventually the house was
foreclosed. After the bank
collected its funds, there was
no money left for city liens.
Fielder says she has
received responses from city
staff that are unsatisfactory,
like "The electrical depart-
ment-cannot inspect unless
the owner invites him upon
the property," and "I'll have
to consult with the city attor-
ney, because I can't risk the
city being sued if I enter an
abandoned property."
Berman explains there is
a process before anyone can
enter a property. The city can
get a special magistrate to
allow city employees to enter
the property and mitigate the
danger.
The home next to Fielder,
is what Dockswell calls the
"Worst Scenario," but it may
represent a groundswell of
things to come.
Berman expects fore-
closed properties may con-
tinue to plague Florida cities
at a time when city funds
are already being stretched.
"We're seeing them through-
out the county. We follow the
stages of foreclosure, and as
soon as we can locate a new
owner, we recite the viola-
tions in an attempt to receive
quick compliance to the code.
Our goal is compliance for
the benefit of the surrounding
neighborhoods."
Says Dockswell, "Our
liens are meaningless. The
bank is the primary lien
holder to collect any money
left from the foreclosure. The
city and other lien holders get
nothing.
And those living near the
property get stuck with, in
this case, a dangerous proper-
ty that can be a health risk to
residents both young and old.
Dockswell explained that
Fort Lauderdale has initi-
ated a practice that deals with
toxic pool water by cutting a
hole at the bottom of the pool.
"That allows the water
to drain, and it keeps the
pool from popping out of
the ground as the water table
moves up and down."
Another problem with
liens is that often, after fore-
closure, banks delay taking
title of the property. That
leaves all liens without an
owner to pursue for costs.
But it's not just about
money.
"We have to get the ox
out of the ditch," says Dock-


Code violations were rampant at this Pompano Beach home after the owners managed to buy the home through a mortgage scam and disappear, keeping the money
borrowed for the purchase. The swimming pool is green, the dock is missing slats, the seawall is collapsing and electrical outlets are exposed. According to city
officials, the property was recently sold. New owners are already on the property clearing up the problems. [Photos courtesy of C. Fielder]


swell. "I want to be pro-ac-
tive. I want to have a meeting
with city officials and the city
attorney. I want them to see
the problem and come up with
a solution."
Dockswell's hope is to
form a task force to tackle
other residents' problems.


"We don't even have a
list of vacant and foreclosed
properties," he says.
While some owners fla-
grantly abandoned property,
allowing it to fall into disre-
pair as code violations rack
up, Dockswell says that some
homeowners are just caught
in the economic throes of bad

By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
On November 26, 2007, Century
Bank crossed the State from Florida's
West coast to open its first East coast
branch in Pompano Beach.
Well known in the Sarasota area
with 11 branches from Bradenton in
northern Manatee County to Venice in
southern Sarasota County, Century is
a new name in this area.
This East coast branch is headed
up by Branch Manager Jean Ma-
rie McIntyre who was interviewed
recently. Asked why the west coast
bank moved here, she laughs and
explains. "Bank owner, Barry W.
Florescue and Bank President, John
O'Neill, both live in this area. They
wanted a branch over here and they
felt our kind of a bank was needed
here."
With so many existing banks
already in this area, she was asked


what Century brings that is needed
here. McIntyre answered, "What's
needed here in banking and in many
other businesses is personal service.
We are a very service focused, full
service community bank. That means
we bring more flexibility and more
personalized direct communication
with every client."
McIntyre gave an illustration.
"We see all problems as opportuni-
ties to demonstrate our commitment
to our clients. A lot of our new senior
clients were intimidated, but interested
in online banking. They have been
grateful for our time and willingness
to teach them how to do online bank-
ing and its advantages. Once we have
made them comfortable, they love the
convenience."
Since opening, Century has cre-
ated quite a stir with its money market
rates which are currently higher than
in other area banks. McIntyre ex-

Dog Park

Letter
Continued from page 6

advisory board has said they
are not in favor of the SE Air
Park site because of the im-
pact on the existing butterfly
garden in that location.
An Internet search com-
bining the words "dog park"
with other words such as
"controversy" or "lawsuit" or
"court" will bring up a pleth-
ora of websites with informa-
tion about protests, controver-
sies, and lawsuits-over dog
parks-with the most-likely
bone of contention being a
location that did not take into
consideration the impact on
the current users, the environ-
ment, and/or the abutters.
While location seems to be
the primary cause of con-
troversy, another objection
frequently raised is that of
cost--especially as budget is-
sues have become more con-
strained. A planned dog park
in St. Petersburg, Florida,
has recently run into coun-
cil-member opposition due
to budget concerns related to
statewide reform on property
taxes.
Because Pompano Beach
city officials are in the pro-
cess of crafting a 2009 budget
plan that will have to cope
with a well-publicized $9.5
million shortfall, some local
activists have already called
for financial participation by
dog owners in the construc-
tion of a dog park. Many
cities require the request-
ing dog owners form a 501
(c)(3) non-profit corporation
and raise at least part of the
funds for any new dog park.
For example, the Dr. Paul's
Pet Care Center Dog Park in
Coral Springs, which opened
several years ago, was ini-
tially partially funded through
fund-raising and sponsorship.
I remain in favor of an off-
leash dog park in Pompano
Beach-in an appropriate
location and with appropri-
ate planning and funding. I
have attended several recent
commission meetings and at
this point the city commis-
sioners and the city manager
seem to be well aware that
those opposing the Commu-
nity Park location are not just
a small minority. I applaud
the commission's action in
striking the matter from the
agenda while city staff inves-
tigates alternate locations, and
I look forward to a solution
that strikes a better balance
between the need as presented
by the Dog Pack folks and the
interests of other members of
the community. .

Mayor and volunteers prepare for


Pompano Beach Centennial Gala


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
The menu is set, the enter-
tainment is ready, the band is
tuning up and beauty appoint-
ments are scheduled.
On May 31, Mayor Lamar
Fisher and wife Suzan, will
host the first Mayor's Gala in
honor of the Centennial year
of Pompano Beach. The event
takes place at the Westin Ho-
tel, 400 Corporate Drive, Fort
Lauderdale.
And it took 100 years of
events to reach tomorrow's
gala with much of the work
done by farmers and the pio-
neers who saw a future here
despite the mosquitoes, heat,
hurricanes and alligators.
In 1910, Pompano [It
had not yet annexed to the
beach area] was part of Palm
Beach County. The Everglades
dredging was well underway.
Napoleon Bonaparte Broward
had just retired as governor
and been elected U.S. Senator,
a seat he never claimed. He
died before taking office.
In 1915, Palm Beach
and Dade counties were
rearranged, adding Broward
County to the map, and putting
Pompano into the new county.
Henry Flagler's railroad
was carrying peppers, egg-
plants and beans from the
Pompano Market to major
cities up the east coast.
Pompano was known as
the winter vegetable capital of
the world, and farmers were
using the Farmer's Bank of
Pompano to deposit the fruits
of their labor.
On Saturday, the history
of Pompano Beach will be the
focus of the evening. Students
from Pompano Beach Middle
School have completed a video
packed with history and his-
torical facts about the city.
And many guests will
carry their own memories of
this city, including the mayor,
whose great grandfather, Clin-
ton Lyons, signed the articles
of incorporation for the city in
1908.


Centennial Gala Volunteers Shirley Farris, Judy Knoebel, Margarite White, Rhea Spelman, Alice Chattman, Lori Chan-
dler and Betsy Buntrock stand on the porch of the Sample-McDougald House with Ed Phillips, Dan Hobby and Mayor
Lamar Fisher. Proceeds from the Mayor's Gala will benefit the restoration of the Sample-McDougald house.


"I think great, great
grandfather would be ex-
tremely happy," said Fisher.
"We just want everyone to
celebrate our 100 years with
great fellowship, fine dining
and dancing."
But what would those
pioneer farmers think of the
city today with paved roads,
fast planes, cell phones and


frozen dinners?
Shirley Farris, who re-
calls riding about her father's
farm on her horse, says they
would all be very "proud.
But my father would never
believe the way we are farm-
ing now."
Dan Hobby, executive di-
rector of the Pompano Beach
Historical Society was a bit


more cautious. "I don't think
they could ever have con-
ceived the city as it is today.
Back then you could count the
residents in the hundreds. To-
day we number over 100,000.
For more information on
the May 31 Mayor's Gala,

Continued from page 8
a promotion for the bank,
McIntyre says, " The rates are
branch specific meaning they
are only offered at this bank
and for a limited, introductory
period. The expense is con-
sidered part of the overhead
for a new setting. Of course,
we will always remain very
competitive with our rates."
Asked what full service
means, she explains, "We
do personal banking, con-
sumer lending, mortgages
and commercial lending. We
offer safety deposit boxes and
of course our accounts are
FDIC insured. Because we
are a community bank, we
have quick access to decision
makers. Therefore, we can
provide quick service on the
lending side. This is unique
and very important to indi-
viduals and business."
, Century Bank's personal
service appealed to Wendy


Hall, a State Farm Agent lo-
cated at 4630 N. Federal Hwy.
in Lighthouse Point who says,
"I've always liked dealing
with local banks. I met with
the people at Century and I
liked the way they handled my
business. They were willing
to work with me which many
large banks are not. I was
and am delighted with their
service."
Another new client who
appreciates the service at Cen-
tury is Bud Kusch, who said,
"I love coming in and being
greeted by name. This bank is
convenient, friendly and the


rates are the best.I eat one of
those home baked cookies
every time I stop by."
McIntyre has been in
banking in Broward County
for 30 years, including 3 1/2
years in mortgage banking.
"Employees receive the same
respect and treatment that we
in turn provide our custom-
ers," she says. " I drive here
from Pembroke Pines ev-
ery day and am willing to
make the trip because I'm
so pleased to be associated
with Century. I've joined the
Pompano Beach Chamber
of Commerce, the Kiwanis
Club, and the bank has en-
tered into a partnership with
Pompano Beach Elementary
School. I'm enjoying all of
my new contacts."

Lighthouse Point Fire

Department adds latest life

saving device to department


SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN
Using a Broward County
grant, the Lighthouse Point
Fire Department has pur-
chased a supply of King LT-D
Supraglottic Airways.
The disposable plastic de-
vices are used in emergency
situations when a patient is
not breathing on his own.
The King LT-D Supraglot-
tic Airways are alternatives to
tracheal or mask ventilation,
according to LHP fire officials.
The anatomically-shaped tip


and cuff assist in the airway's
passage behind the larynx and
into the esophagus.
The military is currently
using the same device for tac-
tical combat casualty care.
"The emergency care in-
dustry is always seeking bet-
ter ways to manage a patient's
airway. The King LT-D pos-
sesses a cuff which signifi-
cantly reduces the potential
for regurgitation and lessens
the chance for aspiration,"
said LHP fire Chief David
Donzella.

Salads, sandwiches, soup and decadent ice cream treats make

Skipper's Cafe a family favorite in Lighthouse Point


Skipper's Cafe
3100 N. Federal Hwy
Lighthouse Point
Tel: 954-781-5795

By Malcolm McClintock
PELICAN WRITER
This summer, when you
are driving on Federal High-
way through Lighthouse
Point, make a stop at Skip-
per's.
This classic ice cream shop
is the ideal place to treat your-
self or the whole family to one
of Skipper's many refreshing
delights.
In fact, there are few old-
fashioned ice cream parlors
like this in the area and
Skipper's does not disappoint.


With 36 ice cream flavors to
choose from and nearly 20
different toppings, the end
result is limited only by your
imagination.
New owners, Leron and
Guy have made it their mis-
sion to offer customers the
best ice cream in town.
Single or double scoop
cones are available but, for
the real fun, it is almost
imperative to indulge in one
of their many "scrumptious
sundaes." A good choice is
the classic Island Hopper that
delivers a homemade
waffle dish filled with
French vanilla ice cream,
hot fudge, marshmallow,
peanuts, whipped cream,
sprinkles and a cherry on


top. Another favorite is the
Sailor's Delight that involves
2 scoops of vanilla ice cream,
strawberry topping, sliced
bananas, whipped cream,
sprinkles and a cherry. Or, for
the more creative connois-
seurs, Skipper's will let you
build your own ice cream fan-
tasy. Be sure to get a waffle
dish so that the only evidence
remaining of your ravenous
sweet-tooth will be the spoon!
And if you are looking
for more than just desserts,
Skipper's has nearly 40 dif-
, ferent sandwiches, salads
and soups to satisfy all
types of appetites. With
chicken, ham, pastrami,
roast beef, tuna, shrimp,
SContinued on page 15


Skipper's also offers half-sandwich plates with soup for those looking for a good
lunch on the run. Here, a Turkey Tugboat is on its way to a hungry customer.

Grilling Goes

Semi-Homemade
With Sandra Lee

" * .


Grilling is more popular now
than ever. According to NPD
Foodworld's Grilling in America
survey, three out of four U.S.
households own a grill. More
than 84 percent of Americans
agree that grilled food tastes
better and is quicker and easier
than other cooking methods.
rF Whether you're a beginner or
ing a seasoned pro, Sandra Lee, New
York Times best-selling author
and host of Food Network's
Emmy-nominated "Semi-
Homemade Cooking," along
with Johnsonville Sausage, have
some quick tips that will take
the guesswork out of grilling
bratwursts. "Brats are an all-time
favorite, and my simple tips will
have you serving up fast and
fabulous flame-seared recipes in
S no time," Lee said.
-LOW AND SLOW: Low and
slow is the only way to go when
grilling brats. Wait until the coals
d are coated with white ash before
id placing the brats on the grate. If
you are grilling with gas, start
the flame at medium, then reduce
a\ to low when the brat juices start
,e to flow.
-HEAT THE MEAT: Watch
''if"c the brats closely, turning them
every few minutes. Rotate the
links from hotter to cooler
portions of the grill as they cook.
-NO POKING
�e PERMITTED: To retain juices
lhis and flavor, always use tongs
.... instead of a fork when turning
brats, to avoid piercing the
casing.
sts -ALL FIRED UP: Consider
brats done when casing is evenly
browned, a bit crisp and they've

Point Marine owners downsize retail operation to make room for


Trifun vehicles that could catch on in times of high gas


prices


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
When retail sales fell off,
Jan Estes began thinking of
ways that her business, Point
Marine, could survive this
economic slowdown. Down-
sizing seemed the obvious
answer, but what to do with
the 3,000 square foot building
her family owned on Fed-
eral Highway in Lighthouse
Point?
So she held a meeting
with her husband and sons
who had been selling luxury
boats using Point Marine's
licenses and who were also
experiencing fewer sales.
The decision was to move
her business into just 1,000
square feet of the L-shaped


building and lease the remain-
ing space.
Guy Harvey, the marine
artist whose work has become
a thriving industry, was a pos-
sible tenant, but his manag-
ers decided the building was
too small. Additionally, they
were interested in buying, not
leasing.
"We didn't want to sell,"
Estes said. "So we decided to
use the space as a showroom
for our new product, Trifun
three-wheeled vehicles."
Wasting little time, Estes
put her inventory on sale
and over the Memorial Day
Weekend moved what was
left into the smaller space.
"I thought I would never get
all my stuff in there," Estes
said. "But I did it with room


to spare, and I will be able
to ramp up for my annual
Father's Day Sale. I have all
the merchandise I ever had.
All I lost was square footage
and beautiful furniture. Now
I will concentrate on what is
really selling."
Estes will cut back on her
shoe lines and had already
stopped ordering women's
wear. But her new space will
allow her to carry full lines
of Aftgo Blue Water/Guy
Harvey, Sportif, Kahala,
Tori Richard and Ex Officio.
Reacting to a decrease in
sales of its signature boaters'
brand, Sportif has returned to
its four basic colors -- black,
white, kaiki and navy --which

crab and many more core
ingredients all on hand, it is
simply a question of deciding
which ones tickle your fancy.
From the tried and true BLT
to the Summermelt full of
turkey breast wrapped around
asparagus spears topped with
melted provolone cheese and
sprouts, there truly is an op-
tion for everyone.
Surprisingly, the best
served customers will be the
health conscious ones. Along
with hoagie rolls, white bread
and croissants, Skipper's
is committed to providing
wholesome alternatives such
as pita and whole wheat. For
the salads, the Skipchick is an
outstanding choice presenting
a scoop of chicken salad on a
bed of lettuce with walnuts,


raisins, sliced egg, tomato,
cucumbers and sprouts served
with heavenly honey mustard
dressing. In fact, from the
Seafood Platter to the Chick-
en Caesar Salad, there are so
many delectable alternatives,
and the only way to believe it
is to see it for yourself.
There are also ample
vegetarian options both in the
sandwiches and salads.
Skipper's has a delightful
outdoor terrace that will soon
be renovated to accommodate
more patrons. It will be a nice
spot to relax and enjoy one
of their milk shakes, smooth-
ies or specialty coffees. Also,
a new play section is in the
works so that the kids can
burn off some of that ice
cream fuelled energy they
have.
"We are also preparing to
offer breakfast from now on
and to be open on Mondays


as well" states Leron with
great enthusiasm. Indeed, the
new management team helped
by a veteran crew have plans
to make Skipper's Caf6 a
great destination for the whole
family.
There is ample parking.
All major credit cards are

p.m., Skipper's is an ideal

And with all items on the
menu under $8, there is no
need to break the bank.

Trifun vehicles could be a boon for small businesses right now


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Research that started when
gasoline was $3 a gallon has
created a product that could
revolutionize the on- road
service business, a quarter
ton three-wheel pickup truck
that gets 42 miles to the
gallon, seats two and hauls up
to 1,000 pounds of material

Company president Tighe

LBTS to Palm Club - 'No Sewer hook-up'

Dozens of homes could be left on septic tanks


By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
Commissioners in
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea
approved a resolution to
eliminate Palm Club Drive
from the town's sewer
improvement project at
Tuesday's meeting. The vote
was 4-1, Mayor Roseann
Minnet dissenting.
Hank Overton, president
of the Palm Club Board of
Directors, said before the
vote that what they were
considering doing was
"discriminatory, unfair and
illegal."
He cited a Florida statute
that says properties annexed
to a town should be treated
with equal fairness.


"One of your
commissioners has elected
to discontinue service for
the Palm Club. He says
'one mistake doesn't justify
another.' That's not the law.
We're not a condo. We pay
taxes. We have water meters.
To be excluded and say,
'Your sewer stops at the front
gate' is not consistent with the
Way we were treated by other
towns,"Overton said.
"Pompano Beach fixes our
water system and repairs our
streets. They maintain our
water system," Overton said.
Palm Club residents pay
more for water than Pompano
Beach and also pay a tax to
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea since
they were annexed into LBTS,
according to Overton. They


are a cooperative of 99 homes.
"I know the dais' mind
is made up on this. I have
direction from the board of
the Palm Club," Overton
said. "I hope we can resolve
this without litigation. The
previous town attorney said.
there was nothing illegal about
(the town) supplying our
sewers," Overton said.
Silverstone asked the town
attorney if a vote to eliminate
Palm Club from the sewer
system now would keep the
town from adding them in the
future. The attorney said no.
Meanwhile, a proposed
ordinance to eliminate the
requirement that properties
held under a cooperative form
of ownership connect to the
sanitary sewer system failed
by a vote of 3-2.

Knitting Nellies prepare for winter


,iia




wee, !t"-'


The North Broward Knitting Nellies meet monthly at the AC Moore Arts & Crafts store in Pompano Beach, 3559 N. Fed.
Hwy., Pompano Beach. In Florida, winter is an opportunity to turn off the central air conditioning, but this group has been knit-
ting for the upcoming frigid Chicago winters. These scarves, hand-knitted, were shipped to a Chicago charity where they will be
distributed to homeless men, women and children. Pictured are Julie Wright, Jan Furtado, Cheryl Hunt, Katie Burns and Annie
Dukes. Back Row Knitters are Lin Burley, Bev Shoemaker, Carolyn Kastelic, Kim McDonald, Edie Antoninich, Rebecca Boldue
and Joan Alwais. For information call 954-788-0924.

Pompano Beach, 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.

Boat repos
Continued from page 1
lot more money because the
process involves attorneys.
And it will hurt the owner in
the future.
So many people think they
can hide the problem and
work it out later. This has a
bad impact on the credit of the
owners.
Where are these boats being
cut off from their docks? This
agent says no city is immune.
He names Lighthouse Point,
Pompano Beach, Lauderdale-
By-The-Sea, and the list has
no end.

The economics of the day
have made repossession num-
ber shoot up in South Florida
where boating is part of the
landscape.
This agent knows how some
people come to love their
boats.
Being out on the water is
one of the best things in life,
but if you try to hide your
boat, it's stealing from the
bank.
When the lender calls me to
retrieve a boat, it becomes my
project. I review the paper-
work, complete background
checks and hire a captain.
Those are added expenses to
the repossession. Those costs

soar if the boat has been
hidden or taken out of the
country. The boater now has
all recovery costs plus what
he owes on the boat. And we
always find the boat.
And all repossessions are
different.
We don't have to knock on
the door and say we're tak-
ing your boat, but if some-
one yells 'Stop,' we have to
stop. That's when we call the
U.S. Marshal and he police
department. At that point, the
boat is tagged with a sticker
that reads U.S. Marshal.
This agent says liquidating
.companies for vessels are
full. He recently recovered a
$1.4 million yacht.
He adds that it's not just
the boat owners who are
finding themselves in trou-
ble, but many South Florida
boat dealers are watching
their boats leave their stores
for non-payment. Manufac-


turers are feeling the pinch,
and some have already gone
out of business.
Ironically, this agent says
the multi-million dollar boat
builders can't build enough for
waiting buyers.
Besides the money woes
that are hitting a population
that is not accustomed to these
situations, often there is relief
when repossessing agents take
the boat.
One client said 'good, I'm
glad you've got it. 'It's like tak-
ing a load off their shoulders.
If the bank sells the boat for
less than what is owed, the
bank will try to recover the
deficiency through the persons'
other assets. Most of the time,
the individual returns it volun-
tarily. If they do, it they don't
have credit problems. If they
hide or move it out of the coun-
try, that's like stealing from the
bank and they will ruin their
credit.
